Tell Us Your Story

Dear First Team, I recently sold my home in Costa Mesa and used your agency to assist me in this endeavor.

During this time, I had the opportunity and privilege of working with the BEST agent I have ever been involved with, insome 7 career relocations. I am pleased to tell you that Ms. Lori Robnett represents your agency in a manner that is top-notch professional and without a doubt, superior in customer satisfaction. As you know the "act of relocating" is a complex one and involves many facets. In addition to the actual sale, several "foot-work" tasks must be accomplished, as well. Lori was instrumental, not only in making sure that the main job of selling the house was completed, but also, in assuring that none of the other minute details fell through the cracks. Lori's follow-up skills, tenacity and ability to work with the relocation agent, my company, the buyer's and me were top-notched. This, in itself, is enough reason for me to recommend your agency very highly in the future. However, in all of my previous relocations, I have never felt as comfortable and satisfied with a real estate agent's performance, as I did with Lori's. She represents very highly, the caliber of talent that you have at youragency. Thank you for having such a top-performing agent. Additionally my sincere gratitude, appreciation and heart-felt "thanks" goes to Lori for all the fine work she did for me. Yours very truly, Leonard Combs Eastman Chemical Company

Rob was the best.

He told us what we needed to do to prepare our house for sale and he was spot on. Our house sold in less than a week after listing. He was also correct with every suggestion, comment, and guess about what the buyer for our house and what the seller of the house we were buying were thinking at every step. He fought for us and made sure that our interests were well represented. We would wholeheartedly recommend him and also work with him in the future.

Terrie is a kind and wonderful individual, but an experienced, knowledgeable, and a reliable real estate agent.

She has been my agent for the past ten years and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Farhad Foroutan

Kim was great!

She was referred to us by a good friend of ours who has known her for some time and of course you expect a friend to have only high regards for someone they know, but Kim actually won us over on her own merit. She was patient, attentive to our needs and wants, and made every effort to meet with us on our schedule. When it came time to put in our offers she was on top of things; never once did we have to question her on status of approval because she was giving us constant and immediate updates, even when she had no news of acceptance. When we are ready for our next move we are going with Kim Schumacher, no doubt about it.

Anthony Scott

Lori Robnett was an awesome real estate professional.

She helped us sell our parents home in Laguna Woods and expertly navigated the many requirements of the HOA. We could not have sold it without her. Moreover, Lori was a pleasure to work with as she kept us apprised of any new issues and always left us with a smile. She has so many contacts in the trades that any repair issues were handled very quickly. Thank you Lori!!


I have worked with Lori on many real estate transactions from 1998 to 2017 and can report that she is totally awesome.

She will do pretty much whatever needs to be done to get a great price for her client, from decorating to cleaning out the garage. She is also very knowledgeable in probate and trust transactions. On top of that, she is a good person. Hire Lori and you will not be disappointed.


I had the pleasure of working with Dieter Hulfachor on the purchase of my condo.

He is a true professional and cares so much about making sure the condo we were going to put an offer on was a good fit for me. He went above and beyond each and every time! He thought of things that I would have never thought of looking for my first place. He would look for the parking spots or garage and make sure I thought about the walk from the parking spot to the property, because if it were late at night or I had a lot of groceries how would I feel making the trek. That thoughtful attention to detail really made an impact. After many many properties we finally found the one and needless to say it’s perfect. Without Dieter I do not believe I would have found such a gem. I feel comfortable at night walking to and from my garage and do not have any struggles with the groceries as it is very close to my place. Those are just one of the little things I could not have thought of at the time of purchase being so anxious to find my first home. I am very lucky to have found such a wonderful and hardworking agent, with such honesty and integrity as well as such consideration to my needs. The experience could have been overwhelming without someone like him by my side. Thank you Dieter! You were always there for me and I would recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home!

Christine Tokat

Gregg, We all wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work and patience.

Dieter sold our house in Long Beach so we tapped him again for our house in Tustin.

He is the perfect real estate agent because everything about him is Professionalism! Dieter "Thank you" and let's sell this one too.

My friendship with Cerise Paton started in 2006.

  She was at First Team Real Estate and I was taking one of her training classes. I just received my real estate license at that time and I wanted to learn about the business.  She is a very good instructor and very knowledgeable about the real estate business.  I had a family member get his real estate license as well and she took the time to help him join First Team Real Estate.  I had the pleasure of being her friend and meeting her family.  Cerise is a person of good moral character and integrity is a hard worker and very dedicated to the real estate business.  Mary Jackson, Los Alamitos, Farmers & Merchants Bank

Lori was amazing to work with from start to finish.

She provided us with the direction that we needed, from the moment we first started looking for a home, until long after we had the keys to our new condo. She has been a pleasure to work with!

Randal Smith Corrine Smith

In my dealings with Cerise Paton, I have always been impressed with her level of integrity and commitment to her clients.

   I have consistently noticed that she puts her client's needs first and for me that is the true measure of an outstanding Realtor.  Additionally, Cerise has a strong knowledge of Orange County Real Estate.  Steve Stearns, Branch Manager, Thrive Financial, (BRE: 01131215 NMLS: 296512)

Lisa Hoover is such a great realtor and a top notch professional.

She made this experience so enjoyable and comfortable every step of the way, and was such a pleasure to work with. If me and my family ever decide to move and buy another house in the future, she will no doubt be my realtor of choice.

We met Sean at an open house.

  He knew the area very well and took us to the perfect house.  He was very positive and got us a great deal!  He even helped us get the repairs done to the property. Sean knows Newport and is great at his job!  We would absolutely use him again! Marc Castle220 Nice Lane, NB

If you are looking to sell your house I would strongly recommend you to go with Parnaz.

As you know, selling process can be very stressful as-is for you and your family; you definitely want an agent that you can trust and know, will guide you through the process step by step. My wife and I had a pleasant experience working with her; she helped us through the planning process – identifying the right time to sell, ensure that the house gets maximum views on-line, spent considerable efforts on marketing through email, social media, websites, newspapers etc. She always showed a high sense of urgency and was available via phone, text and emails as needed. Once we had the right offer and we gave her the go ahead to close, she meticulously worked towards protecting our interests and guided us through the closing process. All along she worked very hard and stayed a step ahead of us, so that she can provide all the information that we needed to be aware and make the right decision. We found her to be a true professional.

Pankaj Guglani

In our recent experience of buying a home for the first time, we were glad to have the good fortune of working with Kim Schumacher as our buyer's agent.

Kim was a patient guide in helping us to understand the process, and a good coach in keeping us encouraged at times of frustration. As a same sex couple with complicated schedules and with a few cultural issues also coming into play in the choice of properties and neighborhoods, we surely threw her a few curves, but Kim is a pro and didn't bat an eye at such complications. We appreciated her honest opinions about properties we looked at, calling it like she saw it. There was nothing pushy about her input, though; on occasions where our thoughts went in a different direction about offers to make, she always honored our wishes. We also greatly appreciated her responsiveness to calls and emails; if she was busy with another client, she would let us know and always contact us back. Kim's flexibility was exemplary and such a benefit to us. There was a real team feeling working with her, such as on the occasion when she came to meet us at a train station one evening to handle some paperwork at a moment when timing was crucial. We worked with Kim for about three months, concluding with the purchase of a house that is a great fit for us. A home run--we are very happy with it, and would definitely work with Kim again. Thank you, Kim, for keeping our best interests in mind, and for thinking of things we never would have thought of.

Parnaz is very professional, experienced and helpful.

She never made me feel uncomfortable and helped me step by step. Really happy with her performance and she will be the only person will I reach for buying another home in the future.

Mike is a good and honorable agent.

He is patient and will work with you until you are satisfied. I would recommend him to everyone!


I initially found Sean from one of his advertisements.

Sean is an excellent agent. He is on top of everything and got things happening quickly. We will use him as our agent again should a need arise and we would recommend him to anyone buying or selling. Thank You Sean!! -Joan Randolph, Newport Beach

Paraz has been very helpful.

She is very responsive and takes good care of client needs. She is Always available for questions and provides the information needed.

Selecting a real estate agent to sell or purchase a new one can be a complicated process.

 But with Walter and Silvia Wiebach as your agents you do not have to worry.  They bring their expertise, professionalism, and most of all their experience and caring to your sale or purchase. Walter and Silvia know the market and assist you in pricing or buying your property with their knowledge.  We sold our condo through the holiday season easily and effortless with this dynamic real state team.  They marketed our home to sell quickly by innovative ideas such as a wine and cheese party, advertising, and holding as many open houses as it took buyers to see our property. While it may sound corny they made our dreams come true.  Their caring cannot be understated as they will help you every step of the way with selling or purchasing your home. Orange County is a highly competitive real estate market; select the best for your sale or purchase of your home.

Julie is wonderful!

! She is professional and a pleasure to work with. We were on a tight timeline for finding a house and she went the extra mile to help us find our dream house. I highly recommend Julie for any of your real estate needs. You won't be disappointed.

I was referred to Sean by a friend.

Sean was very easy to work with. We had one minor miscommunication and it was solved immediately. The transaction went very smoothly, even after I moved out of state! Thank you Sean for all of your hard work!-Lisa Simone8382 Amsterdam, Huntington Beach

We recently had the pleasure of working with Parnaz Nasibi with First Team on purchasing our first home together as a married couple.

We met with many agents on our journey for purchasing a home but one agent stood out from the rest. Parnaz was extremely professional, highly knowledgeable, patient, punctual, hands on and went above and beyond our expectations to help us find our dream home. Buying a home especially with extremely detailed individuals is not a simple task and requires a highly experienced agent with a strong network to deliver. Also given that it's a sellers market she was able to find us a OFF market home through her network and saved us from the stress of dealing with a multi-offer situation. We truly believe without her we wouldn’t have been successful in purchasing our home.


Sean was an absolute professional, extremely responsive, and most importantly produced results.

After having trouble securing a unit in Newport Crest I reached out to Sean on the advice of a friend who lives in the complex. Sean was able to leverage his extensive and personal relationships to effectuate an off market transaction with a spectacular view. having worked with well over 40+ brokers and realtors in my professional career as an asset manager, I can easily say Sean is among the best!

Andres Miramontes

They can be defined in one word: COMMITMENT Walter and Sylvia are the best in the business with a untiring drive to go beyond satisfying ones needs.

They found us a home (beyond our expectation), appraised the market value so our offer was the right number, got us the loan and than practically helped us move in. The home we purchased was not listed with First Team and had 10 offers within 24 hours after being listed, they went to work and in 5 days our offer was accepted $30, 000 above asking price and $4000.00 above the 2nd number yet below the actual appraised value, how they did that I do not know but indicated their knowledge of the market and expertise in real estate They are a rare bread in this fast paced life we all live in with a genuine desire to meet their clients needs. As we all know making a move if you are buying or selling is a huge challenge, they took us from step one to signing as if we were their only clients. They are the kind of people that you would invite back to visit, we did they took time in their busy life to come to my surprise birthday party. They truly deserve your consideration, in five minutes you will understand why.

Matthew and Rosario

I highly recommend Lori Robnett, she is amazing!

She represented me In the sale of my home in Huntington Beach. I couldn’t have been happier with her services and results! I would not hesitate in referring her to our family and friends.

Dawn Torres

Kim stands in a category of her very own, above all other realtors.

Not only is she immensely knowledgeable about the market, sales and offers, she also adds a personal touch to the real estate experience by making us feel like we are her only clients. She’s quick to answer calls and will answer any question no matter how insignificant. She helped us find our perfect home and we will be forever grateful to her. We recommend her as often as we can to family, friends and even strangers. If you chose Kim as your realtor, you won’t regret your decision and may even gain a lifetime friend  Nhataly Chu 

Nhataly Chu

We have worked with Parnaz Nasibi as a buyer's Agent recently during the purchase of our first home .

Just writing to say thank you for all that you did to help us find a home. We really like the time and patience that you showed us as well as the individualized attention. There were times when we were ready to give up and you told us to hang in there. Well we did and we could not be happier in our new home. Thank you so much for making this all possible for us. If we ever know of anyone who is trying to find a home we will gladly recommend you as a realtor. You are the best!


Rob is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the real estate business.

He was able to sell my home quickly and help me find a new home to move in to. He was a great resource every step of the way in two complicated transactions.

Susan K Strichart

Lisa is amazing- buttoned up and gets the job done- plus she’s just a doll to work with- Fabulous experience!

Kim L Kelley

We enjoyed working with her and she was very helpful while in escrow to open the house multiple times as we worked through the design phase.

Always positive and helpful. She also gave us great sub-contractor that we utilized throughout the project.


I met Sean when I bought my home, he was the listing agent.

  After purchasing the home Sean provided comparable sales for me in order to get my property taxes reduced.  He was there to answer questions on a loan modification.  Whenever I had any questions or concerns he was always there to answer them.  He is always available no matter what time or day it is.  I would recommend Sean to anyone!  When it was time to sell my house there was no question that Sean was the agent I was going to use, he goes above and beyond!1836 Nantucket

Fred and Debbie VanCleave

Biljana was exceptional, she went far beyond her role as a realtor, and made sure to anticipate all aspects of transaction and pre-empt any isssues.

I am extremly happy with her. It took only 13 days to sell my place: over list price and for cash offer, quick close, no contingencies! I would recommend Biljana to anybody who wants their RE experience to be as smooth as possible.

Vera Sreda

Dear Lori, I wanted to thank you again for all of your help with the selling of my home.

  I remember talking to Damon and thinking I was just going to call you for some advice and sell my home by myself, but then I talked to you and my instincts told me to have you handled it. My instincts were right, you did a great job and you really cared, so THANKS again you really a great person. Brian College Park

​​​​​​Kim has helped us purchase both our homes and got a tenant for our rental.

We'll use Kim again next time we have property needs! Great overall satisfaction, a pleasure to work with!

James Yoakum

Dear Lori,Thank you, thank you, thank you.

.. and a hundred more! I am so grateful for all your hard work, time, and extraordinary effort you put into making a painful process almost painless. I am blessed to count you as a great friend and if possible an even greater realtor.


Mike has been extremely helpful in the house search for me and my family.

We moved to California from Germany with a lot of obstacles to overcome and Mike has done a terrific job in supporting us, even across borders.

Nicole Kraft

My husband and I got notepads from Sean for years.

When we were considering selling we called Sean to ask him a few questions. He willingly answered all our questions and kept in touch with us for over 2 years. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and informative. Plus he was pleasant to work with. We would definitely refer anyone we know to Sean in a heartbeat. He helped us understand the process. He always responded in a timely manner, also, when we were anxious or nervous about anything he was patient and understanding. His knowledge and expertise is outstanding!

Darrell and Kathy Halvorson

Calvin is a total pro.

We are closing today on a house in West Hollywood. The seller's agents were VERY difficult to work with. If it had not been for Calvin we would have backed out of the deal. Calvin is so pleasant and smart. He never gets his feathers ruffled. He sure is the person you want drafting your sales agreement, etc. He truly looks out for you. Not the case with many agents out there. Calvin is intense about protecting his clients. We knew we were in excellent hands with Calvin. I would never sign anything again without having Calvin review it. He takes his time and reviews EVERYTHING. If we purchase any other properties in the Southern California area we will 100% use Calvin again. He is a total worker. Accommodated us in every respect. Never blinked an eye about showing us multiple properties in 3 different areas. Even when he got stuck in 405 traffic during rush hour he never complained. He stuck with us and helped us finally get the property we really wanted. We are thrilled with the house and even more thrilled with Calvin. Thanks again Calvin!

Monica Bice

Suzann did an incredible job of helping us find our dream home.

She was so easy to work with and we felt she had our best interest at heart. In a super competitive housing market, Suzann is the agent you need to succeed in finding your home! Thank you Suzann!

James Eccles

I couldn't have asked for a more top-notch real estate agent than Paul Monte.

Paul's professional dedication to me as a client made a remarkable difference in the process. His personal qualities coupled with his professionalism are what ensured such success... exceptionally satisfied with his follow-up and attention to details from contract through closing. It was a pleasure to have had Paul working on my behalf. I wish Paul continued success and I would recommend him above anyone else in residential real estate. Thank you Paul! Sincerely, Alex Sanchez



Skawinski has been my go to guy for 20 years.

Lori went above and beyond!

I'm a first time home buyer and Lori was the ultimate guide! She took her time to make sure I understood every step in the process. She addressed all my concerns in a timely manner and called/texted me about any updates. I love my new home and I'm very thankful for Lori who helped me find it! If I ever need to buy or sell a house in the future she will be my first call!

Brittany Contreras

Hey Kim,   I just wanted to say thank you for all of the help you're giving us.

I know our situation is a little awkward and it's not a sale for you right now - but having your help is HUGE for me.  When it comes time for us to purchase a house you know you'll be on my list to call for help as assistance. I've dealt with several realtors in California and I can say with the exception of MAYBE one other person, you've been the most willing to help and the most helpful.    Your efforts and work are so appreciated. There are a lot of people out there who don't show apprecaition for anothers efforts but we want you to know we appreciate yours!  Heather Zapolsky  

Healther Zapolsky

I met Sean through his advertising where I lived.

Sean was very pleasant to work with and went above and beyond to sell our home, getting a higher price than other agents suggested listing at! My wife and I relocated to Salt Lake City and Sean made sure everything went as smooth as possible. He made many trips to our home to meet with contractors and showings as needed. It made the sale from another state much easier knowing Sean would be available to help as needed. We would refer Sean to anyone buying or selling. When we were deciding who to list our home with Sean gave us several references that had used Sean to sell homes in the past. They all had nothing but good things to say about Sean. I would like to return the favor for him!

Josh and Cathy Lander

I love working with Drew.

I have had the pleasure of working with Drew not once but twice--once to buy our First Home and the second to sell our First Home. He was always available to all our questions, patient, kind, and walked us through the whole process. He was very helpful and listened to our concerns. He even helped us to get things done that the seller didn’t want to do. Even to this day, when I have a problem with the house he is there to answer my questions and has even contacted the agent on our behalf. When we were ready to sell our First Home Drew was available to talk to us about the process and get us prepared. When it came time to price our home, Drew provided the comps and valuation but I had a price in mind as well. At the end, we decided on my price which was $15,000 above Drew's recommendation. I was alright with not selling my home and waiting until it could have sold in Spring 2020. I thought there is no way that my home will sell. My husband said the same thing too and had doubts because of the price point that I (we) had set. By the way, I was selling my home around Thanksgiving time. Drew advised the pros and cons of selling during the holidays but we had a need. To make a long story short, Drew provided a plan and strategy along with his marketing plan scheduled his photographer and videographer to come in and start going to work. By the time Drew was ready to put the home on the market, he was able to show me how many people were looking at my home before it was on the MLS. My home had over 3,500 views!!! Not sure how he did it but Drew is a marketing genius!! So by the time he put it on the market, he scheduled one showing and in 2 days....received an ALL CASH offer and SOLD it for full price!! "Shut up, Drew!" is what I told him when he called me about the offer. The rest is history. Drew sold my first home for full price and a quick closing. For Thanksgiving, I ended up packing and began our move out. Drew is amazing...and if you're looking to either Buy or Sell, I highly recommend that you talk to Drew. He really does have a solution for just about everything and his experience shows.Drew IS my Realtor for all of my real estate needs.

Maria Cali Smith

Sean worked with me and my schedule to get me in to see the property & notified me when the price dropped into my price range.

He negotiated very effectively and got me the property with the terms I wanted. He was very professional. We had a very difficult and delayed escrow and Sean kept me informed of what was happening & what to expect and we worked thru a difficult problem to close the Escrow. Sean went above & beyond! Mike Milligan

We have used Julie for many years to help us lease our properties.

Julie has always been patient and supportive of getting the right tenant into our properties in up or down markets and providing the analytics to get our properties priced for competitiveness in the market place.

Thomas and Diana Contino

Drew is our realtor turned family.

Because of Drew we bought our dream home, and we can honestly say without him it wouldn't have been possible. We would still be renting and dreaming about a home to call our own, but Drew got us started on the right path. He kepted us motivated throughout our journey to pre-approval and once we got there he was waiting with a whole list of homes for us to see. There were ups and downs through the home buying process like he said there would be, but he was right there with us through it all. We had a counter offer rejected, opened escrow on a home that turned out not to be the one, went shopping some more, put in backup offers and finally opened escrow on our dream home. Ultimately, all the homes we offered on (even the one that rejected us) came back to accept our offers, but by then Drew already found us our dream home. Buy and/or sell your home with Drew. You won't regret it!

Maryca Lim

Mike was the best choice I made to represent me in the sale of my house!

Although I am a real estate agent, I knew that I needed a neutral voice in this emotional process. Mike's knowledge of the market and of the Buyer that would purchase my house, was right on! He offered sensible idea's and suggestions that were helpful to get my house sold over asking. Mike was responsive, supportive and although we have been friends a long time, he maintained his professionalism at all times! Thank you, Mike for helping me to the next chapter of my life!

Please do this testimonial for me .

Thank you

Mr Nia

After our condo in Huntington Beach was listed on the market   for over 18 months with another real estate company, we knew we needed to make   a change.

We interviewed various agents and even considered listing with Help   U Sell. In the end, we chose to list our property with Sean Jarne, of First Team Luxury Estates. Sean's presentation was well organized and professional. The amount of publications he promised for our listing was truly impressive. His positive attitude and warm and friendly demeanor made our decision to list   with Sean an easy one. He worked hard to sell our property and held many open houses, as many as we wanted, which was alot! Sean was always available to answer questions and offer honest and sound advice. He really had a "fire in his belly" to sell our condo, and we easily became confident in him and his ability to sell our condo in this challenging market. We recommend Sean Jarne to anyone who is serious about selling  their property. His listing strategy and good advice throughout the listing and even the escrow process left us confident that we sold our condo for the   highest possible price in the current market, and that, is peace of mind.   Now we are so happy.The relief we both feel is just amazing! We are free to enjoy our retirement and travel.  Here's a tip for you baby boomers: Don't wait until the market improves enjoy your life, don't wait to list your property for sale, just call Sean Jarne! You will be glad you did!Yours Truly,John and Patricia Sweet

John and Patricia Sweet

I selected Sean because he sold a house for my neighbor.

  My neighbor went through several realtors.  She was trying to sell the house at a much higher price than other houses in the neighborhood and Sean got hers sold.  I knew I would be having a similar situation trying to sell the joint property with my ex-husband.  It was a very ugly process due to my ex-husband purposely trying to sell the house for a price that was way to high.  Sean helped with the pricing issue, held open houses weekly, posted listing in multiple areas as well as having to deal with attorneys.  I appreciate all of his hard work and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone thinking of moving. Barbara Moore1151 Summerview, HB

After 2 years trials and frustration trying to sell some of my properties after other 'so called' real estate professionals I became so frustrated that I had given up all hope of regaining the capital I had invested in the real estate market.

Emily called me one day and told me that she understood my frustrations and could see the obvious of my why my properties did not sell. Her compelling presentation convinced me to offer her the challenged with one of my properties. She accepted the challenged and provided positive results within a time frame that was much shorter that our original agreement with out sacrificing price. Roy W

Paul is an excellent real estate agent.

He's patient and offers suggestions to help determine what his client is really looking for in a new home. He works with the best contacts to get your home photographed to sell or choosing an excellent home inspector for your new home. He has many contacts for anything you should need related to a new home or moving- movers, window coverings, contractors, etc., and offers the information to his clients. During what can be a stressful process, Paul does a great job of keeping things moving calmly forward. Working with him on the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home was a pleasure. I will definitely stay in touch with him so when I'm ready for another house I'm guaranteed another positive experience.

Victoria Cosgrove

She has been my agent for over 25 years, and she is the most experienced agent I have work with.

She is honest and has integrity toward me and my family. She is an excellent asset to your company, please take good care of her.

Ray Badii

Parnaz took care of every detail, went the extra mile to make sure my mother's home looked spectacular, sold it at the highest price in the quickest amount of time, and made sure her home held value in a shaky real estate climate.

We are so pleased with her service, her kindness, her gentle care and concern for my mother's every need and combined with her ability to negotiate the best deal possible. We recommend Parnaz for her attention to detail and her patience in explaining every step in this process. Her method works and you can trust that it will ensure you value.

Anne Sinek

“I reached out to Sean from one of his advertisement’s and we decided to sell our home with him.

Sean was efficient and helpful throughout the entire transaction. He went the extra mile and arranged for out of state communication with me and performed many things beyond his duty that I could not do. He did it very well! I would definitely refer Sean to anyone and use him again for any future real estate needs.”

Carin Holsinger

Sean is very easy to work with.

  Working with him is a pleasure, you feel as if your hand is held from start to finish!  He knows the market and gives you great advice on how to maximize the price when selling a home!  I would not use anyone else! Carrie Durgin17 Encore, Newport Beach

Parnaz was very efficient and helpful in helping us find a place that truly fulfilled all our prerequisites.

She was very patient and cooperative, and due to her diligent searching we were shortly able to find a new lovely home. She's very kind and affable and reliable.

I met Sean when I bought my home, he was the listing agent.

  After purchasing the home Sean provided comparable sales for me in order to get my property taxes reduced.  He was there to answer questions on a loan modification.  Whenever I had any questions or concerns he was always there to answer them.  He is always available no matter what time or day it is.  I would recommend Sean to anyone!  When it was time to sell my house there was no question that Sean was the agent I was going to use, he goes above and beyond!1836 Nantucket

I first found Sean after receiving one of his advertisements, my experience with him could not have been better.

He is easy to contact and has perfectly clear communication skills. Sean explained every part of the process and followed up with every question that I had. He is very knowledgeable and personable, professionalism at its best. I would most definitely use Sean again and refer him. He is one of the few people I have worked with that did everything they said they would do and more. Sean was the only positive thing we had in the purchasing process, he is a realtor that actually earns his commission. He will do anything and everything he can to facilitate a home purchase. Sean knows current market values and doesn't try to "push" a decision to close.

This was our 5th transaction with them and we are currently working on number 6.

Lori is the best. Period.

Phillip Faubert

Sean was Honest, Upfront & Very Accessible.

He always responded in a timely manner. Moreover, Sean was very knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the transaction & escrow process. Sean knows how to get the deal done. I appreciated his Candor and his professionalism representing both ends on this transaction. Thanks Sean! Bridget, Avery and Harri   

Walter and Silvia, Words cannot express how happy and grateful we are to have had the pleasure of working with both of you.

We have never seen two people work so hard and passionately. We appreciate everything you have done for us. Both of you have made our dream come true. Not only do we have our dream home, but we have made life long friends. Your Firends Thank you again,  

Chad and Tracy W.

Sean was referred to us by my friend Travis.

We were looking in Newport Crest & worried that we wouldn't be able to find a home in our price range.  Sean was confident that he'd find us a place. And, in fact, he did. Their were problems with the sale and Sean remained calm & steadfast. His professionalism made the process enjoyable and we were lucky to have him on our team. We also, Just listed a property with him. He delivers on his commitments. Stays calm when there's bumps in the road. Informative, reliable, & easy to work with. Always answers his phone or calls back promptly.Mark and Phyllis Klugman1 Mojo Court, Newport Beach

I met Parnaz from a flyer she mailed to me.

It was personal and unlike the typical "canned" flyers so I decided to call her. She showed up with a nice plant as a gesture since my Mother had recently passed away. From that moment forward, it has been a real pleasure to work with her. I am an attorney/CPA and a real estate broker and could have chosen to handle the listing myself; however, something told me that Parnaz would be great. I was right and she was outstanding. We discussed options and decided to remodel part of the house to maximize the price and the timing to list it for the market. Parnaz met with me and the various contractors and also went to their showrooms to help select the various materials and appliances. She has excellent taste and we agreed on all the items and the contractor to use for the work. She helped oversee the remodeling and would even show up to water the plants in the garden. She hired the photographer and recommended a home staging company, which turned out to be great. She prepared for the marketing plan and set the Open House. On the Grand Opening, based on her efforts, we received multiple offers and entered into escrow the following week to close. The Grand Opening occurred on March 4 and escrow closes on March 31. Excellent work. I would highly recommend Parnaz and plan to work with her in the future on other projects.

Sean was very professional in the way he handled the sale of my home which took only 3 months.

He was always keeping me up to date with what was going on & I was always getting a friendly call. It was a pleasure working with Sean & I would refer Sean to anyone. His performance & personality are outstanding. He made the whole selling process comfortable and it was a pleasure working with Sean.Constance Smith1162 SummerviewHuntington Beach

We have known Silvia and Walter since our daughters were in pre-school together, almost 25 years now.

 We consider them our friends and our realtor of choice.   They are one of the hardest working couples in realty. In July 2006, my husband was offered a job transfer to Illinois with his company, and he had approximately six weeks to get there.  We owned a home and I thought it impossible to sell our home in that short amount of time and he would need to go ahead without us.  Not knowing where to begin and how this whole selling a house worked, we called Silvia and Walter for advice.   With a very tight schedule before us, Silvia and Walter quickly arranged multiple open houses and realtor viewings to give our property maximum exposure. They not only sold our home for us in four weeks, they also referred us to a realty office here in Illinois that they know would take good care of us.

Pat and Angela Craig

I have had the pleasure of knowing Nick for a long time.

I learned from the beginning that Nick is a trust worthy person, and is very concerned with his customer's needs. Although we have not yet closed escrow, Nick has done an awesome job helping me buy my first home! He has been responsive and has followed up timely and professionally! I will recommend and fully endorse Nick to my own network , and will do everything I can to help advance his career in real estate. Passion, honesty, ethics, and good nature go a long way! First Team you have a great asset on your hands. Thank you Nick!

 11/2/2011 I am a Real Estate Broker whom Paul Monte, Realtor, represented the buyer on one of my listings.

We just closed escrow on this transaction  on a condo in Aliso Viejo. From day one I knew he would be a great professional realtor to work with. He was passionate about helping his buyer and protecting her interests. He was super resonsible and always reliable to get the necessary components done that make for a successful transaction. He kept in great communication with all parties and updated all concerned. Very professional and a breath of fresh air to work with him. Thank you Paul from on Realtor to another!! Deborah Walz

Kimia is extremely professional and patient.

I love working with her! She is on time and supportive. She is a great designer and great realtor.Highly recommend her business. Such a great active realtor and amazing personality.

I was new to north Orange County when I first contacted Alex.

He was recommended to me by a friend. Alex was very kind and patient from the first phone call. He asked all the right questions to get me to describe what kind of place I was looking to purchase. Since this was going to be my very first home purchase, I was very clueless, but Alex was able to guide me into making some decisions about what I was looking for. He then went to work to find condos that met my requirements, which required him to call the sellers, check out the properties on his own, and do extensive research. Alex showed me several properties in North Orange County, mainly in Fullerton. His knowledge of the area was excellent. He was able to advise me on neighborhoods, based on my needs. Alex grew up in this area, so he is very familiar with it personally, in addition to professionally.

Lisa is a true professional, who is extremely knowledgable about the local real estate market and trends.

She helped us purchase investment property that, with her help, we will turn into our dream vacation home. But, she did so much more than that. As buyers from out of state, Lisa had to manage us and most of the transaction remotely. In doing so, she displayed her incredible communication skills (emails, texts, and calls with constant updates), her dedication to helping us find the absolute perfect place (sending us videos of her previews of properties), and her willingness to work all hours to answer our questions and attend to our needs. She was a strong and patient negotiator, but with a sincere and warm personality that helped her gain the respect and trust of the selling agents; which proved to be a huge asset for us. Upon meeting her, she anticipated all of our questions and needs and even toured us around the area to help us better decide on a location. Even now that the transaction is over and we are again out of state, she has continued to help and act as our local liaison to get our vacation home finished; providing us with her many local contacts and being on site to help us finish projects. With all of that professionalism, nothing shines more than her fun personality. She is truly a joy to work with and be around. Not only have we gained a new house and new agent for life in Orange County, we've gained a new friend.

Josh and Christy Gardiner

We have used Dieter for our Long Beach house and now for our Tustin house.

Both of them sold in a great amount of time on the market. He is a full service agent who prep'd our house for the Open Houses as well as working with us to get in trades and inspectors. I highly recommend Dieter!!!

Joliya Thai Family Trust

I worked with Mrs.

Parnaz, she is very talented and skilled and knows what she's doing. She helped us negotiate with the owner and with her hard working and on-time follow up, the rent process was smooth and easy. I am so glad that she was my agent and I definitely recommend her to my friends and everyone.

Alireza Farmad

Parnaz is a very hard working, honest and best agent.

I am very happy and blessed that we had her to be our agent. She helped us bought a nice house and she did great job in everything. Thank you. Parnaz.

I have had the pleasure of working with Drew Foma'i for nearly 10 years now.

I chose him to manage my rental property after interviewing a number of candidates, and he very quickly proved that I had made the right choice. I live in Shanghai, China and I needed to have confidence that my property manager was up to the task of handling just about anything that came up without the need to constantly check in with me. Over the years, I gained a level of trust in Drew that was earned over and over by his professionalism, his dedication, and the decisions he made on my behalf in response to a variety of situations that came up along the way. Drew managed my rental property so professionally that I never had to worry about anything. It simply doesn't get any better than that.Recently, I decided to sell that particular rental property and of course, there was no question who would represent my interests as a seller. Once again Drew provided exemplary service in not only selling my home, but also in the myriad of things he did to make it easier for me. He handled every detail, from prepping the property for showing, cleaning the windows, making minor repairs and eventually finding a buyer for the furniture that I had used to stage the property for sale. Now the property is sold, and yet Drew was there to help move things out on moving day, he is helping me find a rental space to store the car I still have in CA, now that the home has been sold where I formerly garaged my car. His dedication to his clients doesn't stop with a commission check...he is there before, during and AFTER the sale. His attention to detail is second to none, and his follow up is way beyond anything I have ever experienced in the past. This guy is truly the "real deal"...and yet humble, down to earth and so easy to work with. If you are looking for a Great Realtor to represent you...look no further. Call Drew!

"In an industry characterized by real estate agents that “over-promise and under-deliver”, Sean Jarne is a standout sales professional.

  After selecting our desired location and buying criteria, my wife andI began the search for our new home by asking three different real estate agents to show us their best offerings.  The other two agents could not hold a candle to Sean’s knowledge and consistent followthrough.  We selected Sean as our sole representative due to his expertise with the Newport Beach real estate market, and his unmatched persistence.  In the end, Sean found a property that matched our criteria, and successfully fought off two other offers to secure ournew property.- Kris and Katy Ehlers"

I called Sean from one of his advertisements.

Working with Sean was a really good experience. he kept me informed of everything that was going on. He got the price I wanted for the sale. Everything went very smooth. I would definitely refer Sean again, He is a pro! He knows what he is doing and doesn't B.S. you.

Michael Pontrelli

Dear Ms.

Lewandowski, I wanted to contact you on behalf of Kim Schumacher and Wyn Dee Stone - to thank you for the INCREDIBLE professionalism, industry knowledge, integrity, perseverance, and expertise demonstrated by these two amazingly skilled real estate practitioners.  I am an extremely busy high school teacher, also currently earning my Doctorate degree in Psychology. As you can imagine, I am literally BURIED in work on a daily basis. Still, it was very important for me to take the time to sit down and write this letter. That says a lot about how highly I think of these two individuals. As you know, the process of buying or selling a home can be a roller coaster. Experience after experience during this process revealed both Kim and Wyn Dee, and their business knowledge and acumen, to be UNPARALLELED. The combined caliber of training and depth of experience so clearly demonstrated by these two professionals allowed me to feel comfortable throughout the entire process, despite inevitable peaks and valleys. "Never let them see you sweat," must be their mantra, because although many obstacles arose, Kim and Wyn Dee remained even keel and professional by utilizing their combined expertise to handle the challenges.  Not only do Kim and Wyn Dee possess exceptional realtor skills, but also, their bright spirits, confidence in their abilities and the abilities of First Team Estates, and their personable and accessible demeanors create a powerful combination. Never once did I have a question that I asked through phone, text, or email that I didn't have a response to WITHIN THE HOUR!! In this day and age - that is incredible.  Thank you for having them as part of your team. They truly are amazing - both individually and collectively - and I plan to "spread the word." I know that I am small peanuts, but Kim and Wyn Dee made me feel like a queen. Sincerely, Angela Harding p.s. Give 'em a raise! ;)

Dr. Angela Harding

Lori was the best!

She helped us through every step of the process to sell our house. Our home required some remodeling and she made sure that the work was getting done so that we could get our house on the market. Once the was done, she listed our home. Lori had a number of open houses and was available to show our home whenever necessary. I would recommend her in a minute. 


Alex has been in contact with me over the past few years as I have been considering buying a new home but the timing never seemed right.

Recently, I decided to move to another, bigger rental as I keep looking. I contacted Alex for assistance. What can I tell you? He went above and beyond from beginning to end to help me not only find a place but also, after I moved him, he "held my hand" so to speak dealing with the other realtor on a whole bunch of issues that needed to be resolved - even though that really wasn't required by him. He always returned my calls promptly and tried to find solutions for everything I required. If he acted like this for just a rental property, I look forward to buying a house through him. I can recommend him with confidence to anyone. Thank you Alex.

Monika Gupta

As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions, and Julia was very patient to walk me through every step from finding the right house, in the right neighborhood, to submitting an offer, negotiating, securing financing, and closing the deal.

I worked with Julia for about 6 months until we were able to find the right home for me, and now I couldn't be happier. Julia was very knowledgeable in helping me avoid costly first timer mistakes, and I highly recommend her to anyone searching for their next home in the OC.

Tycho Hughes

Sean has provided us with exceptional service throughout the entire process of selling our property.

He has impeccable follow up, timely communication (even when abroad) and is ultra professional. He has exceeded our expectations and that is truly saying something of his service as both my husband and I own our businesses and have extremely high standards and expectations. Sean guides the client through the process offering suggestions and fully supports our decisions. Sean demonstrates his knowledge every step of the way and is absolutely 100% committed to his clients. He is a dream realtor! 427 Lugonia Newport Beach

Peter and Colette Gross

My wife and I decided to list our residence for sale and needed a real estate agent.

My brother referred us to Justin Miller, and we are glad he did so. Justin handled all the details, and made the entire transaction very easy. We were so pleased with Justin's service that we also hired him to represent us in purchasing another residence. That transaction also went very smoothly. We highly recommend Justin.

"Paul Sold my house in 4 DAYS for 7K over list Price!

"Stacey Crosser " I met Paul at the House of my dreams...  that had everything that I could ever ask for, and purchased it on the spot. I knew he had my interests at heart and did not have any issue with his representation of both myself and the seller." Great Job Paul! Kelly Hillock

I could not have purchased my first house without sincere help and expertise of Ms.

Nasibi. She was extremely patient and caring helping me out to find the perfect house in accordance with my financial ability and within the scope of my budget. Ms. Nasibi is truly experienced in what she is doing and is able to evaluate her client's needs and their desire to buy their dream house from different angles. Ms. Nasibi's attention to every detail and her ability to resolve problems faced while purchasing my house made the experience smooth and less complicated. Doing business with Ms. Nasibi was for sure a great experience in which I achieved favorable result. I highly recommend Ms. Nasibi as an experienced and passionate realtor who will help out her clients fulfill their dreams.

Reza Ashouri

Lisa and Dieter were wonderful to work with.

They both have the decorating/staging "eye" to make a home even more attractive to interested buyers. They C-19 protocols were followed to a "T" and they always let me know when they were arriving for showing (appointments) and leaving. Even with a mask...Lisa is always smiling. A fast, clean and thorough transaction. There is no one else I would trust and recommend!

Michelle Hatch

We met Sean when we drove by his listing and called him on the sign.

  Sean was very responsive to our calls and requests.  Our purchase transaction went very smoothly.  We are pleased to have met Sean and we highly recommend Sean to others, as we know that Sean will take good care of his clients. Ann Ngo8382 Amsterdam, HB

I found Sean through the website he does for his listings.

While working with Sean he followed through on all the steps necessary to purchase a home: explained documents, offered vendor recommendations, answered every question, returned calls quickly,etc. He is a very competent agent and knows his market well. I would definitely recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling. Simply put, the transaction was incredibly smooth. It was almost too easy to buy a house. Any agent who can make a first time home buyer like myself say that gets my recommendation! Costa Mesa, CA

Kris Kartozian

Sean Jarne was recommened to me by my friend Marc.

You won't find a more honest, trustworthy and dependable person than Gregg Perrah!

I met and developed a professional relationship with Gregg over nine years ago and I still call upon him to serve our client's. Gregg is very passionate about his work and the client's he serves. He is never short of going above and beyond to meet the needs of others and because of that I rate him with five stars!

T. Mitchell

Paul is the best person you could ever get in this space.

First of all, it is the level of maturity and his keen eye for clearly outlining that positives and negatives in any situation. His positive attitude is absolutely fantastic. At the end of the transaction, the relationship changed from an agent to a good friend. His best trait is the space that he provides for anyone to decide on the available options and the guidance he provides to objectively make a decision. If he every needs a direct customer referral or an in person video shoot or a direct feedback from customer to potential customer - just call me

Karthikeyan Balasubramanian

Sean Jarne is very professional and extremely prompt.

He is a "go getter" and self motivated individual. Sean, I believe, always looked out for my best interest and expedited the process to the best of his ability. I would definitely use Sean again and would strongly recommend anyone selling real estate, residential or commercial do the same. It was a through pleasure working with Sean.Randy Collett

I can't say enough great things about Kim.

I've purchased several homes over the years and Kim has been my favorite realtor by far! Kim worked with us to find the perfect home for our needs, and took care of all the little details so we could focus on our cross country move.

Lisa Dockery

Lori helped us find and buy our first home in 2004.

So when we were ready to sell, we knew she would help us get top dollar. She is knowledgeable about market conditions and trends, experienced, and a tough negotiator. Lori knows how to get things done efficiently. Above all else, she is honest,  straight-forward, and trustworthy- qualities that are not always easy to find.


Kim was our real state agent while my husband and I were looking for a long term lease in OC.

We couldn't make it without her. She went above and beyond our expectations, and even went outside of her usual territory in order to get us the best of the best for our money. She is now a dear friend, and we absolutely recommend her.


Sean knows the Real Estate market and he strives to meet customer satisfaction by being honest & direct.

I also liked his Marketing skills & Strategy plan regarding the sale of my property. I had confidence knowing Sean would sell my house in a timely manner that would be profitable to benefit me the client.Linda McCarthy

A first class agent with first class service.

Very helpful and knowledgeable. Most impressed with her quick reply and interest in getting the needed information ASAP. Very focused on client's needs. Her service made the other parties in the purchase transaction pale in comparison.

Cameron did a wonderful job on all aspects of our sale.

Quick, responsive, and always kept our needs in mind. He consistently showed patience and made us feel we were his only client. That's hard to do. He went above and beyond all throughout the sale to make the entire process quick, accurate, and easy for us. Would highly recommend to anyone for all Real Estate needs.

Dieter Hulfachor is a highly skilled agent and has been a pleasure to work with.

It is amazing how you can make a real estate transaction a win win if you're working with the right professionals. I was the buyer's agent and Dieter represented his sellers.

Sean was recommended to me by Camila Dobenan.

He explained the buying process from a-z in easy to understand terms. Stayed on top of all paperwork and everyone involved (Mortgage company, Escrow, Inspector, Sellers agent etc) Answered Cell, Text & Email at anytime of day - Even from the ER! Kept as much as possible of the paperwork digital. Referred a mortgage broker who got us a rate at Internet-only prices at a Brick & Mortar Bank. Made up for mistakes that the seller's agent and estate sale people made -- out of his own pocket! Stayed in touch well after closing. I would definitely use Sean again - He is a great realtor for 1st time buyers - especially in the Newport heights neighborhood. He is very persistent, reliable & accommodating.Jan and Margrethe Biermeyer23 Odyssey, Newport Beach 

I met Sean at my open house.

  Sean was great to work with, he has a great personality and is very persistant with his follow upand level of detail.  I am in the real estate business on the commercial sales side and I know what it takes to be a good agent.  That being said I would use Sean again for all my residential real estate needs. John ReadWild Goose Court, Newport Beach

I had a very smooth experience working with Ali Jadallah.

He was very professional, honest and easy to work with. He has a great personality and work ethic which made working with him a breeze. He made sure to carefully listen to the criteria important to me in the property I was looking for and if there were any questions or concerns he was always quick to respond to them and address them. I can honestly say I was very happy with my overall experience with him and would highly recommend him to others.

Sherene Arbabi

However in writing up a review for the both of you.

We both feel blessed that you were recommended to us. You were both very professional. You are part of a working force that doesn't always show such honesty in their profession. You both went above broad to sell our home, especially with us living so far away. We would highly recommend you to anyone that is interested in selling their home or business for that matter. We thank you for the part you played in selling our home in Tustin, California.........................................   Don and Irene Himes

Sean sold the house 2 doors down from us on Newport Island, and he did it so fast he stuck in our minds.

  When we decided to sell we called Sean.  Sean was great to work with.  He did a great job with our open houses.  He gave good advice to us on how to stage the house.  He kept us informed and was a good communicator during the closing process.  We would refer Sean to anyone moving because he stays on top of everything and works hard to get you the highest price for your home! Pasquale and Nancy Evans400 38th StreetNewport Beach, CA 92663

Sean was a pleasure to work with.

  He helped us price our property appropriately and made what can be a stressful situation smooth and seamless.  Sean kept us informed every step of the way.  He was always available.  We would absolutely refer Sean to anyone thinking of buying or selling.  We were so happy with Sean that the only Christmas lights we put up were around his sign! Denise and Bill Brady1866 ParkcrestCosta Mesa, CA 92627

"I met Sean as he used to drop flyers/info off at my door for several years.

When I finally decided to rent my home out he agreed to work with me to get renters until I decided to sell. Sean was great to work with; he was persistent but not annoying! He did everything required and extra. He was patient and thorough . I appreciated his consistent communication. I would use Sean again and believe that he works hard, is conscientious, keeps his word, and knows Newport Beach!"

Deb Buzzick

Lori just kicks-ass!

She is highly knowledgeable of the industry, very hard working, always available to answer questions, walks you through the process step by step, and goes above and beyond any realtor, we know. We bought our house through her 14 years ago and she just sold it again for us and like a fine wine, she gets even better with time. She just kept the process moving, we were constantly kept informed and we always truly felt we were in great hands.


We called Sean when we saw one of his listings.

He promptly answered his phone and we met him tosee the property. He was very accommodating of our time and once we decided to make an offerSean did a GREAT job negotiating us a fabulous deal. Throughout the escrow Sean kept usapprised of what was happening and made the whole process very easy and trouble free. We willhappily use him again and we would recommend him to anyone thinking of purchasing a house!Joe and Mary Drucker1850 Parkglen Circle, Costa Mesa 

We called Sean off his sign on his listing on Newport Island and ended up buying our new house through him.

  He was very upfront and honest, there was no salesman B.S.  He worked hard to get the job done as he committed to from the start.  My wife and I liked his philosophy that "every offer should be written, not verbal."  He did a great job negotiating for us, we would absolutely recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling! Peter and Kelly Burkhard38th Street, Newport Beach

Biljana is an excellent real estate agent, knowledgeable, smart, and patient.

Our seller’s agent was really difficult to deal with and I lost my patience many times, but Biljana stayed calm and took care of everything in the most professional manner. Her experience and skill were crucial in closing the deal in the shortest amount of time and making the process seamless to us. She guided us and helped us in every phase of acquiring real estate. We never felt rushed but she was always there to provide the best advice. I highly recommend Biljana.

I called Sean off his marketing for our complex, Seascape in Newport Beach.

Rob is a great agent and I have and will continue to use his services time and time again.

The Lee Family Living Trust

I called Sean after seeing his advertising and his real estate signs in our neighborhood.

  When I first met Sean I was impressed with how organized he was even though he was quite busy.  I could tell he was going to be a hard worker and I was not dissapointed.  He was constantly networking and following up with anyone tha showed interest in our property.I would recommend Sean Jarne to anyone I know.  It seemed that several times a week he was bringing a prospective buyer for a showingor holding an open house.  We enjoyed our business relationship with him.  He was available to answer all our questions and provided assurance when needed.  It was a positive experience and we would work with him again!

Sean showed our home at 1105 Alabama in Huntington Beach when we had it listed with another agent.

Julia was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and responsive.

Her professionalism, expertise and excellent interpersonal skills work synergistically to make her a wonderful representative for anyone attempting to purchase or sell a home.

I first met Alex through my wife who knew him from before when they were in APEX together.

When we all first met 2 years ago, my wife and I were just browsing homes and trying to learn the homebuying process. Alex explained EVERYTHING and he did it in a way which did not make us feel stupid. We had lots of questions about down mortgage payments, PMI, fluctuating interest rates, etc... Alex answered all of them with a sort of ease that made us feel very confident in him as our realtor. It was at this time we knew we wanted Alex to help us purchase our first home, but we weren't financially ready so we decided to postpone our home search. When we were ready to buy a home this year, Alex went above and beyond in his service towards us. Alex was always available if we ever had a question, and he made sure to keep us in the loop with every update. He negotiated for us as if we were family and not just his clients. It is this type of service that will definitely have us recommending him everyone we know.

After I spoke to her iat an open house I felt very comfortable with her knowledge and passion to find us a new home.

We could not have found a more knowledgeable and passionate Realtor! THANK YOU for finding us our dreram home. You were great to work with.  I will refer you every one I know who is looing for a house or who wants to sell a house.

“My husband and I just bought a home with Ethan’s help, and he was really wonderful to work with!

In the early stages, he kept us up to date on new listings and was always available to show them to us around our busy schedules. He also gave us great advice on our initial offer when we asked for it and kept us very informed about seller’s responses, inspection schedules and results, and appraisal process. When the inevitable little hitches in the process happened (a termite inspection, for instance, that wasn’t 100% clear about findings), he jumped into action to get a revised report done immediately.We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor—Ethan was amazingly responsive (I don’t think we ever even had to leave a voicemail!), knowledgeable, and pleasant. He worked very well with both our loan officer and the escrow company to make the whole home-buying process for us virtually stress-free—and that’s something when you’re buying property these days in Orange County!”

Susan and Thomas Meisenhelder

Our first time meeting Silvia and Walter was during an impressive presentation they provided my wife and I in the First Team office.

We had received a personal handwritten note from them and wanted to meet them in person as we were selling a property in Tustin and wanted local,  knowledgeable agents to help us. Not only did they know the local area where our property was located but they lived in the area and could give any potential clients all the answers to any questions they had. They were honest and passionate and above all so helpful in getting our property ready for sale asap. Previews and staging the property before listing it was so key to getting multiple offers after only the first week. We especially appreciated the online reviews of the other agents after they brought their clients to the property. Silvia and Walter were on top of all communications between both parties and escrow company during the sale process even when BOTH the sellers and buyers were out of town during COE.  We greatly appreciated having them both on our side during all negotiations and during this important time of the sale.  We recommend them to anyone buying or selling or both!  They are the BEST and will be our friends for life!

As I think about how incredible it feels to know that I own a home in southern California, I also think about how fun it was to work with Paul Monte throughout the process of buying my first home.

Paul is an expert Buyer’s Agent and one of his specialties is working with first time home buyers like me. I had no clue how to start or what to do so I was happy that Paul guided me. First Paul referred me to a great lender so we knew how much buying power I had. Then he listened to what I wanted and set me up on searches so only those properties were emailed to me for consideration. Then I found it – the perfect condo that fit my budget and requirements. Paul consulted with me in every step of the offer, acceptance and escrow. He is an expert negotiator and sees the big picture and end result. He even has a drone that assists buyers to view properties from every angle. Every transaction has its unique challenges and Paul always had a way to resolve any issues in mine. Paul has all kinds of referrals and knows so many people. You want someone like that when you are buying a home. I am extremely happy that I called Paul and it has been such a blast that I’m sad to see it end. I can’t wait until I am in a position to buy another property and work with Paul Monte again. Paul is the only realtor for me.

Alec, I met with Kim today and I needed to thank you for connecting me with her.

 Kim is smart, professional, knows what she is doing and yet fun to work with.Please extend my positive feedback to her manager. Thanks again, Jack Shenouda

Dr.Jack Shenouda

I am not just saying this.

Paul Monte is the person you want helping you through all your real estate endeavors. He is very knowledgable and always available for his clients. Real estate is stressful and without Paul I would have been pulling my hair out. He made it literally a piece of cake. Thank you Paul!


We were first time home buyers and we found Mike from First Team through happen chance.

Mike was extremely patient with us, as first time buyers with lots of questions. He calmly guided us through the process, which seemed overwhelming at times. We were able to close in 30 days thanks to Mike's due diligence on several matters. He even continued to follow up even after we closed on our home.

Cristian Sanchez

We first met Sean in our neighborhood, Sean would stop by our home periodically to leave a note tablet and chat with us.

From Sean's initial presentation, which was outstanding, to the close of escrow, we found him to be exemplary in every way. He addressed all of our questions and concerns with care and attention and made the entire process a pleasure. We would certainly use Sean again and be happy to refer him to others as an outstanding person with superior knowledge of real estate.

John and Louise Ryan

Dear Ski team, after living in our home for 30 years the thought of selling and going through the whole escrow experience was not somthing we looked forward to, but you and the team made it so much better than we could have imagined .

Basically you held our hand and came to the rescue on everything . We can never say enough about the great service you provided. When we are asked for a recommendation on a relator it will be a no brainier , you guys "The Ski Team" are the best !!! We love you guys, thank you so much we are very happy customers and friends forever . Herb and Carmen Wollerman

Herbert & Carmen Wollerman

I did an enternet search for Sean after seeing he was the listing agent for the property I was interested in.

My experience with him was Great! Prompt communication both on the phone and in emails and texts. I would refer Sean to anyone I know who needs an agent. 

David Lu

Rob is always responsive and is great at negotiating.

He got me a higher price even the offer was presented as “highest and best offer”. I have now used Rob for three different real estate transactions and will continue to request his services and recommend him for any future needs. Best agent ever!

Susan Kay Strichart

Alex was exactly the type of realtor my husband and I needed and were looking for.

He and Ivan provided a level of service and care that answered our questions, assuaged our fears and responded to our concerns, even the ones that were unspoken. We would recommend him in a heartbeat. First, Alex was very well-prepared. He not only conveyed a sense and demeanor of confidence, he also showed that he was ready for our situation by showing us the market research he had done. The work done by him and his team was obvious and visible. We appreciated that he demonstrated to us that he put in the work for our purchase. He took it as seriously as we took it. Second, he was very informative. When it came to each step of the process, what each piece of legalese was, or how homebuyers typically handle certain situations, or how sellers typically approach certain negotiations, Alex provided insight and direction. Third, he was exceptionally responsive, even outside of normal working hours. We didn't expect him to respond late in the evening, but he has done so a number of times. He acted promptly whenever we brought up concerns, and always did his utmost to find the most complete answers to bring back. Finally, he was assertive. Professional, always. But also assertive. My husband and I know that the process can be difficult, and that negotiations could get complicated. We wanted someone who could cut through all of that morass. All in all, we couldn't have wishes for a better agent than Alex. He will be the first one we call if we're ever in the market to buy or sell.

With Gregg, he went out of his way for my wife and I.

Always willing to help us out! Every time he said he was going to take care something for us, he always followed through. My wife and I have know, and have family membere that are realtors, but We went with Gregg. He's extremely helpful and always willing to help us through the process. I have never meet a person that gives you 100 percent, all the time, and I mean all the time. I give Gregg a five star rating! And, my wife and I would only use Gregg in the future!

John D & Janet B Folliott

We could not be happier with our experience with Lori.

As first time home buyers, we started out the process not knowing much of anything regarding the market or mortgages. Lori helped us every step of the way. When we found our dream house, Lori negotiated a deal that we were so happy with and  was on top of the inspection and repair process. Lori helped the process with our lender as well and made sure that we were on track and on time with our closing process. She was very knowledgeable about the area we wanted to buy in and was a huge help giving us the information we needed to make our transition into our new home perfect. Lori still provides us help even after we have been moved in for almost two months now. We cannot recommend her enough.

Jennifer Chamberlin

Walter and Silvia are the most amazing agents and individuals.

They will seriously alter your expectation curve when it comes to service. Sadly, we have been constantly disappointed by what passes for good service since we met them. Thanks Walter and Silvia for our beautiful home!  

Tim G.

I called Sean off of Zillow.

com on his listing.  Sean was very dedicated to servicing the transaction, He answered my questions at all hours of the day and 7 days a week.  As a first time homebuyer I had lots of questions, concerns, and second thoughts.  Sean gave me piece of mind and helped me through the process.  I would absolutely use Sean again and recommend him, Sean will work hard for you to make the deal happen.  Joel WikstromSeawind CommunityNewport Beach

Denise knows what she’s doing and stays on top everything to ensure the transaction closes on time.

She is diligent with open housing and the customers love her. She is personable, fun and not a stuffy Realtor.

John W Fleck & Kelly Dupre

She is an excellent agent with so many patience to helped me .

I'll buy new house from her after I made more money . She is amazing worker and friend . I love her .


Gregg is the most hard working very professional real estate agent I have ever met, providing excellent service,responding to questions in a very timely professional manner, continuously giving updates .

A Million thanks to you !!!!! For your excellent service and giving me peace of mind .You have made my dream come true !!!! Virginia/Orange


"You are such a great realtor.

You got me such an awesome deal."M.Lovelace

It's not often you meet someone so passionate about what they do.

My experience with Jennifer is that she is always willing to make the extra effort to make you feel important which is special in our world today. 

Scott H.

Everyone knows that process of buying property is usually very stressful and you end up paying more than you want.

I was a first time buyer so I expected my stress to be even bigger. But Lori was with me during the whole process, giving me tips and her support all the way to the end. She got my deep respect and love when she save me immediately $7000. I wanted to offer $7000 more for that property and she told me: "No, wait, we can get it cheaper". And we did! Those $7K stayed in my pocket and paid for closing costs. She was able to get some money from seller for closing costs too. She was there to pull out her connections and fix A/C for me for free, she even bought home buyer's protection insurance for me for the first year. I'm very pleased that I can say Lori Robnett is my Realtor! 

Desanka Deljanin

I am very impressed with Kimia’s knowledge and skill.

Kimia is a true professional willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. She is professional and kind with style and great personality. Kimia is a marketing expert and knows how to effectively negotiate the best deal possible. She is  attentive, helpful, and quick. I am very satisfied with Kimia’s service and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Parviz Karandish

I met Sean at an open house.

  Sean was an exceptional pleasure to work with as he was the ultimate professional.  He was knowledgeable, kind, patient and understanding.  Sean was easy to communicate with and was always responsive and available.  I needed some hand holding during the selling and buying process and Sean was eager to extend his hand and walk me through it.  I would recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling a house!  Sean knows his business extremely well and used his expertise to help me make the best decision for myself.  He pursued my dream home even after it went into escrow to my great disappointment knowing that at times homes can fall out of escrow, Sean kept in close contact with the listing agent.  When it fell out of escrow Sean was right there to swoop in.  I got my dream home thanks to Sean's persistence.  I am ecstatic in my new house!

Sharon Countryman

Biljana was amazingly helpful during the entire buying experience.

She made the buying process easy, she answered all of my questions and facilitated a quick and painless close of escrow. I am super grateful for her help and I wouldn't have been able to purchase my home without her!

Vladimir Radic

Working with Kimia as an agent on the other side was spectacular.

Kimia is collaborative, professional, responsive and a true partner when it comes to working together on large transactions that are particularly complex and deal with many issues. Kimia has the rare and unique skill to act as a great advocate for her client, and a fantastic partner in getting the transaction complete. A true joy to work with!

Gregory Lynch

My brother and I were in contact with Mike Farina since we were searching for an apartment in Huntingon Beach, CA around October of last year (2017).

He was extremely helpful with the application process throughout our apartment search. We did not end up using his help or First Team Real Estate to lease an apartment. When it neared time to renew our lease or move out after the year, Mike reached out to my brother and I via email and asked if we were looking to move and eventually connected us to where we are currently living. We could not be more satisfied with his customer service or more grateful for his help and knowledge that simplified the leasing process and led us to the perfect home for our needs and wants.

Kyndal Duff

We were so fortunate to have found Parnaz when we decide looking for home to buy.

As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was patient with me as I’m picky when it’s coming to buy something In short, she was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with her was that she was always more focused on answering my questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs. She did follow up back and forth with listing agent to get counter offer for us .We would definitely recommend her to anyone.


Kimia was very responsive to my many issues and questions.

She was proactive in getting me information on 1031 exchanges and Delaware statutory trusts information, because I was selling my rental property but I didn't want to be a landlord anymore.

David S.

I could not have been more pleased with Julie as our realtor!

From the beginning, when she showed up with a very well-thought out plan for selling our home, as well as a very comprehensive report on the state of the market, to the close of escrow, she was in our corner every step of the way. The communication was outstanding and she went above and beyond (with great attention to detail) every step of the way! I cannot say enough about what a fantastic job Julie did and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take that big step of selling your home!

Steve Norris

Kim is the perfect mix of professional and personal.

She listened to our wants and needs, combined that with her own psychological analysis based on our reaction to a few properties, and found us the perfect home. Above and beyond, she advocated on our behalf for concessions and improvements prior to our move in. I eagerly look forward to a future property search and adventure with Kim. Well done!

Blair Unger

I met Sean over the phone after contacting him about a property my Aunt was interested in.

I had left a voicemail and he right back to me. I travel quite a bit for work so I had not been able to contact him back right away and he followed up at least twice before I was able to call him back. After telling Sean what I was looking for and changing directions on him after the first week, I was so impressed with how quickly Sean understood what I was looking for and how immediate his response were to my inquiries. Sean was always professional, knowledgeable, and had exceptional follow-through. My husband and I were so impressed with how quickly Sean responded to our questions and how helpful he was guiding us through the home buying experience. It was a real joy to work with Sean and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to list or find a property.

Heidi Dufresne

Nick was most helpful.

He made sure I understood the whole process every step of the way. Trustworthy and dependable.

Sondra S Montooth

Thank you for helping us find our dream home Lindzee!

You are the best!

Brian Willis

I met Sean and Julie at open house on a property in Tustin, From start to finish they were excellent.

They are diligent and always available to answer questions. I would definitely use Sean and Julie again, They are very professional and efficient. They made buying my first house a great experience!

Sophia Silva

When I first met Kimia she impressed me with her professionalism and charisma, always extending all her experience and knowledge in Real Estate to me.

She is always so patient and honest. She has given me the most honest and valuable advice and has gone out of her way in helping me find a property  suitable for me in every way. I have been very fortunate in having her help me and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best representative in their real estate deals. You can not go wrong with Kimia!

Honeye H.


! Unbelievable!! She did a very good job and we are very satisfied with the result! She did way more than what we expected. She was so happy and glad every day so all the time we got so much energy from her. God bless her!


She’s awesome!

Words cannot explain enough how much Thankful I’am and blessed to have found her! She works so hard and goes beyond of what I expected for an agent! I will for sure highly recommend her to my friends and co-workers! She is very considerate, helpful, and kind person. Lastly, because of her help, my family and I were able to find our dream home! Thank you so much!

Faye Mendoza

Lori is great!

She is on it finding and getting done what you need. She is patient and helps with things that are above and beyond what you could hope for or expect!


I recommend Julie Brim, she was so helpful and worked so hard for me.

I gave her what I thought to be an impossible task, but she managed to find me the perfect place in the exact time I needed it with everything I wanted. When ever I had a question she responded immediately and if she didn't have the answer she found it. She is truly a pleasant person and was wonderful to work with.

Lori E.

Julie was extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

Even worked through the weekend on our applications and got back to us for all our questions. Glad to have worked with Julie and would recommend her to friends and family! Thanks again Julie!!!!!

Nam and Beatrice Avo

She did a great job photographing and describing the house, and even did some research about the history and style of the neighborhood.

I think this helped create a lot of interest. That, combined with the hot market, led to multiple offers after her open house, which she did a great job leveraging to get a good price and favorable terms. I would recommend her to anyone selling their house.

brian j starr

We have known Sean for over ten years.

He has helped us with other real estate needs before and has always exceeded our expectations. Sean always answers his phone, is quick to respond, and knows his business. We have been both the seller and the buyer with Sean, and will use him again on the next sale or purchase! He is so easy to work with.

Brad anf Suzy Hovda

We were first time home buyers and felt like there was no better person to be helping us than Paul Monte.

He is so knowledgable, professional and a true expert in his craft. He always fought for what was best for us, he looked at us as a young couple starting our lives together and this house not just as a purchase but as a home to start our family. Paul was always on our side, never about money - all the referrals he gave us were also excellent people and shared his work ethic and eye for helping us get what was best. He made us feel like we were his only clients - always picking up the phone for us at any hour, available to us whenever we wanted to see places, and had all the time in the world for us if we had questions. Any first time home buyer should have a conversation with Paul to think about the long term plan and options - he knows them all!

Jacquie Parker

We were very impressed with Parnaz when we purchased our new house recently!

She was pleasant, professional and tried hard to make us and the seller happy. She was also quite responsive to our concerns and issues which came up during inspection of the house. For instance, during inspection phase  we discovered moisture in one wall. She worked diligently with HOA to fix the issue in a timely manner. Shirin Riazi

Shirin Riazi

Kimia helped my fiance and I purchase our first home and exceeded all of our expectations in guiding us through this process.

With very little knowledge on the market, purchasing and escrow process, we needed someone who could take control in guiding us to a successful purchase. Kimia did this and more, supplying timely responses and delivering on all requests/promises. I would recommend Kimia to anyone buying or selling as she truly listens to her clients and helps them find exactly what they are looking for.

Griffin Foster

The level of dedication that the Wiebach team has to their clients is amazing.

  I met Silvia during an open house, and mentioned I was upside down in my house but that I would love to sell.  She called me a few months later to let me know the prices had gone up, and offered to come by to check out my house.  I’m so glad I said yes.   They sold my house for me when I didn’t think I would be able to sell, and were able to take care of everything for me.   I owe them a world of gratitude.   Thank you,

M. Vandenberg

 8/13/2012 I couldn't have asked for a more top-notch real estate agent than Paul Monte.

Paul's professional dedication to me as a client made a remarkable difference in the process. His personal qualities coupled with his professionalism are what ensured such success... exceptionally satisfied with his follow-up and attention to details from contract through closing. It was a pleasure to have had Paul working on my behalf. I wish Paul continued success and I would recommend him above anyone else in residential real estate. Thank you Paul! Sincerely, Alex Sanchez

He is very patient and very nice on us.

I like to recommend to my friends to him.

Chiaki Mashburn

Looking for a home is a stressful time.

I personally was overwhelmed by the process. But Kimia came to our rescue. She worked hard to find us listings and she was so patient showing us many homes. I don’t know how she tolerated us. She found us our current home and we love it. She was kind,  patient, understanding, and professional. I highly recommend Kimia for any real estate needs!

Dalia Z.

Lori helped us to sell our home FAST in Costa Mesa, CA in ~2002.

She was extremely aggressive in advertising our home using various media including notifying the surrounding realtors of the sell. Also she is honest, polite, friendly and an all around professional when it came to dealing with us,  the other realtor, the buyers and sellers. She negotiated a great deal for us. She knows the local properties like the back of her hand. Also she is very aware of the local school and community if you have questions such as where the schools are located or how to contact the school administration. You can't ask for better, as a realtor, than Lori Robnett.

Bill Bequette

Lori's expertise and attention to detail allowed us to prepare our highly upgraded home in such a way that it showed beautifully.

We had multiple offers from the first (and only) open house, and sold the house for more than the asking price, at a price far above the comps in the area.

Linda and John Hoggset

Maurizio did a great job!

Kirk Lucy L Revoc Living Trust

Paul has gone above and beyond on numerous occasions.

He is excellent!!!!! He has assisted me in both buying and selling property and everything has ran smoothly and that's all due to his expertise, attention to detail and keeping all parties informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Paul!

Jauna Dayle Anderson

Julie, was wonderful to work with, She knew how to price my home, worked within the time frames I needed and now I'm using her to purchase a new home.

Pam P

We knew Sean prior to the purchase of our home.

  There is one word to describe his work, "AWESOME".  He kept us calm and constantly updated throughout the process.  He walked us through the entire process from start to finish so there were no surprises. We would absolutely recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling.  He is the ultimate professional that is easy to work with and will always do a great job! Seth Groder and Melissa WeingerTustin, CA

I chose Julie Brim as the person to represent me for numerous reasons.

She is extremely detail oriented and extremely professional. Julie is punctual at all times which means throughout my hectic schedule driving all over southern California every day, I always know that I can contact her and she will be there! She knows Orange County like it's her backyard. We looked at several properties until we both said this is the one! Julie is always patient and gives me her personal feedback as I would expect a professional to do. She knows these properties and the prices they are worth. I will always look to Julie for my real estate needs. Thank you Julie Brim for being a Rockstar! Your time and dedication to me and my family is truly appreciated.


Wonderful Realtor.

Honest, hard working, and find the best house for you. She makes sure you are taken care of. The most important thing is her honesty, knowledge, experience, hard work, and energy.

Mr Parang

It has been a pleasure to work with Mr.

Paul Monte in our transaction. He has been very dedicated every step of the way. A true professional. We are very happy to have been referred to Paul as he immediately became involved in every phase of our process. Thank you Paul! We will keep on recommending your services to everyone!

Patricia Sturla

We were so fortunate to meet Walter and Silvia.

My husband and I were buying our first house, which can be very daunting. Walter and Silvia were extremely patient with us spending countless afternoons looking at houses and advising us. Their experience and knowledge was such an asset to us. They truly looked out for us and advised us very selflessly. Not only did they help us find our house, they also helped friends and family. Everyone we have referred has been very satisfied. Walter and Silvia will always be our agents. I can't imagine working with anyone else.

Susan M.

Parnaz is an excellent agent and I really highly recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, caring, and energetic agent.

At the beginning of our home buying search, she patiently took the time to understand what my wife and I were looking for and toured many houses. We never felt any pressure from her in buying certain properties. During the bidding and purchase phase, she was a trusted agent to me, always available, and gave us great feedback/help.



!!!!! She is knowledgeable and fun to work with.

Paloma Properties OC

Kim was a dream to work with!

She was actually the listing agent for the home we wanted to purchase. She was so knowledgeable and made us feel at ease so we decided we wanted her to represent us as well!


We had worked with many realtors in the past.

  We chose Sean to use for the sale of our Costa Mesa property. Mainly because we felt he was the "Area Specialist" and was going to work the hardest, most aggressively. Our decision was a good one.  He had our house sold for almost the asking price within the first month of placing it on the market . Only one open house necessary. Even in a down economy there are buyers.So this left us in need of finding a home quickly in the South County area, in which we had been looking. Sean had already been matching up our needs to many homes in the Laguna Niguel area.  But now we were ready to buy.We were able to find exactly what we were looking for and matched up closing dates perfectly. Out of our Costa Mesa home and into our new Laguna Niguel home!His follow up and dedication to his work as a quality realtor is tremendous.We were very pleased with him and would recommend him highly.-Stefan and Shonnie Gillmer

Julie is a first class professional: very knowledgeable, extremely personable, helpful and cooperative beyond measure, and a true pleasure to work with, no matter what the circumstances!

She found me the perfect new home and treated me with the utmost respect, answering my many questions and researching a number of different possibilities. I never saw her without a smile and a cheerful, enthusiastic attitude expressed in everything she said and did. And I was just looking for a rental! It is a privilege to know her and to recommend her highly. I will definitely be contacting her for all of my future housing needs and already have gotten a friend connected to her for a purchase down the road. Julie goes the extra mile (day and night) and I consider her a wonderful friend as well as a valuable realtor. I was a college professor for 30 years, and Julie gets an A+ in my book! She is outstanding!

Sheri Zeigler

It was really a pleasure to work with Emily she was personable and always available to talk and answer questions.

I am grateful I was referred to her and finally purchased my first Condo!!

Parnaz was the agent when we recently purchased our house.

She worked very hard to keep us and the seller happy. She is a person of high integrity and excellent at her profession. Shirin

During the most stressful move of our lives, we had the great fortune to be referred to Dierdre Malloy.

Her expertise as well as her kindness and warmth made our home buying experience fantastic. Dierdre worked tirelessly to find us the perfect property. Every one of our phone calls was returned promptly, and on the rare occasion that she did not already know the answer to one of our questions, she found out quickly and got right back to us. Dierdre follows through on every detail and checks on every potential issue, ensuring that there are no unpleasant surprises. She went to great lengths to make sure that all of our needs were met and that in each element of the transaction our interests were protected. During escrow she continued to see that our every need was met and that we were happy with our impending purchase. On moving day, she even thoughtfully provided provided us with a wonderful feast that lasted us for days. She also set up an appointment with someone who would come to measure and replace our window screens. Dierdre has followed up with us several times since to check that everything is going well and that we have everything we need. Prospective home buyers simply cannot do better. Dierdre is a true gem; we only wish we could have her represent us in all of our endeavors!

Lee Anne and Erin Whittinghill

Always great working with Dieter.

Always professional and goes above and beyond to provide great service.

Ron Rafii

I cannot thank Kimia more for her assistance.

I appreciate her attention to detail and I wouldn't look any further if you're buying or selling. She leaves nothing to chance and is relentless throughout the entire process. In all our interactions she was responsive, intellectually engaging, and most importantly very accountable.

Kyle Sonksen

We met Sean Jarne at an Open House in Newport Beach.

We had been talking to several Real estate agents but Sean knew the area better than all of them put together. As we continued to work with him he knew the answers to our questions on the spot. Once we found the property we wanted Sean negotiated us a deal almost 20% under the list price. The property was a short sale and took several months but Sean was very diligent about maintaining contact and making sure we hit our deadlines. We got the property as our Vacation house and couldn't be happier! We had a great experience with Sean and we will never call anyone else for our Real estate needs. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home!Brian & Jennifer Shafton

She is extremely devoted and knowledgeable at her job .

Always on time . Consistent Wigan she shows houses . Always in side of her clients and protect their interests in the transactions .cust


My experience with Sean Jarne was a positive one in that he helped me get through a complex list of closing procedures.

  He kept the pressure on until the deal was done even though it took some time. I would recommend him as a knowledgeable agent when it comes to purchasing or selling property. Lon Moellentine

Kimia is an excellent realtor with superior local knowledge of the market and process for home purchasing.

She is responsive, reliable and focused on meeting the needs of her clients, ensuring the best results for the home purchase. She supports you in all steps of the process and engages with other parties on a very professional level. I highly recommend Kimia

Kai M

Kim was an amazing Real Estate Agent!

Kim was extremely thorough and quickly answered all of our questions, which we really appreciated. Our house buying process went so smooth and we are so pleased with our home, it is exactly what we wanted. The contacts that she referred us to were efficient and very professional from the inspectors to the Title Company. It was a great home buying experience. Thank You so much Kim!


Sean and I met before I decided to sell my house.

  Sean regularly made his presence known in our community striving to get to know its uniqueness.  He was my only choice in that he diligently learned our community.  He was persistent in his work, positive in his attitude and respectful always.  He also has the ability to laugh at himself, acknowledge when he doesn’t know an answer, then research until he does.  As well, he listen to my concerns and was always a positive presence and encouragement thru the selling process.  I would refer Sean without any question to anyone buying or selling! Patricia DeZemplen1789 Capetown Circle, CM

Kim was my realtor on my first purchase of a foreclosure back in 2008.

She was my realtor again when I sold that condo and purchased my new home in 2019. Kim is responsive, reliable, hard-working and has good communication. When our home was sitting on the market longer than anticipated she ran back through all our options, again and again, working to get the property in front of realtors and buyers. Her marketing materials and well-made and professional (unlike what I receive from her competitors in the mail)! I refer my friends and family to her because I’m confident they’ll have a great experience.

Lori is awesome to work with!

She sold us our home in 2004, and she was our first choice to sell our home 11 years later due to her extensive local knowledge. She expertly guided us in our pre-sale home preparations, helped us determine a competitive sales price and represented our interests throughout the escrow process. She was able to sell our home on the first day! Lori is always accessible and responsive. Her integrity is top notch. Great overall experience!

.Sean Jarne was recommended to me by a friend who had used him before in the sale of his home.  Sean was very professional and very capable, I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.7132 Nimrod, Huntington Beach

Jim and Irene Sun

Selling and buying a home is a stressful time.

I could not have asked for a better agent to help me through it all. Kimia answered every call and kept me informed of everything I needed in a timely manner. I now consider Kimia a friend. If you need a realtor, Kimia is the one to chose. She will definitely make your home selling or buying a lot less stressful. Call Kimia, she will get the deal done!!

Rob's transparency and professionalism was evident from my first meeting with him and this continued throughout the entire process.

I'm very glad to have had him as my agent!

Michael Long/ Donna Long

I contacted Sean after receiving one of his advertisements.

Sean was very professional and courteous. We enjoyed working with him. Sean was great at answering all our questions and kept us advised of the progress. We would refer Sean to any one we knew who was in need of an agent. Thanks Sean!Gary Huff38 SeascapeNewport Beach

Julia is a wonderful realtor!

She is punctual, detail oriented, and works extremely hard. Julia always puts the best interests of her clients first and makes the home buying and selling process stress-free. Plus the fact that Julia is fun, sociable, passionate about her work is a huge plus. I highly recommend Julia for all your real estate needs!

I have been working with Pari for many years and she has always been professional in every matter.


"非常感谢您一直以来对我的信任和帮助,认识您真是我的幸运👍,您的友好、耐心、专业和绅士风度,给我留下了十分美好的记忆。在我买房的过程中,您一直耐心的帮我挑选,就如同您自己买房一样,是那样的负责和尽心;最终帮我买到了自己喜欢的房子。这是我在美国买的第一套房子,原本我认为很复杂的过程,因为您的出现而使它变得简单,所以,我非常的感谢您。如果我的朋友要在Irvine买房,我会第一个推荐你,由您来帮助他们置业。"爱萍Translation: "Thank you very much for your trust and help.

  I am really lucky to have met you.  Your friendliness, patience, professionalism, and gentlemanly manner have left me a very good memory.  In the process of buying a house, you have been patient to help me choose.  Your sense of responsibility and dedication, as if purchasing for yourself, have helped me buy my dream home. This is the first home I bought in the United States.  At first, I thought it was going to be a complicated process but it was really easy because of you.  So, I am very grateful to you.  If my friend is going to buy a house in Irvine, I will be the first to recommend you."

Working with Sean was amazing!

We met Sean about 3 1/2 years ago at one of his open houses. For the past 3 1/2 years, he has been showing me random houses till I finally found what I was looking for. His approach to my requests were always kind and professional. We would absolutely use Sean again and refer him. Thank you Sean! We appreciate everything you did for us!James Johnson and Feria KashaniBowdoin PlaceCosta Mesa, CA. 92626

Cerise - you were a wonderful agent.

I was so lucky to have you and Dave. Lara O'Brien, Esq.,  Tustin Home Buyer

Kimia was simply extraordinary!

She was very diligent, ethical and overall, a pleasure to work with!

Beatriz W.

Justin has been most responsive to all my questions and needs.

I have found I can rely on his advice completely. He has been able to handle every problem and a few emergencies with what seems to be ease! He is very personable and puts you at ease right a way. I can only assume he can do the same with my tenants. He is a pleasure to work with and a real credit to your company!

David Bosner

Hey Kim Thanks for the thanksgiving wishes and we wish you and your family the best as well.

Even though you were the most polite and refreshing real estate agent we have ever spoken to, we chose a place in Palos Verdes to rent that we will be moving into next week. Thank you so much for all of the listings and sorry for not choosing one of the oc places. Wish you the best.  Best Alex

Alex Solomos

Mike was excellent.

Very professional, personable (and amazing with our kid) and so helpful. He went above and beyond! Even sent us dining/shopping recommendations. Highly recommended.

Carole Sanderson

Working with Parnaz Nasibi exceeded any of my expectations.

As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Parnaz was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with me and my mother to determine what would be a good fit for us. Parnaz was willing to meet us to view our condo and put together the offer letter within a couple days of our first meeting. She was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of couple months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Parnaz made it as painless and straightforward as possible. I truly believe her expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Parnaz!

Farid S

We met Sean at an open house.

Sean was great in helping my family locate a property that fit our needs. Sean has been in the area a long time and has connections with several clients. These relationships helped us locate additional inventory. We would recommend Sean to anyone!

Brian Dobbins

I have been looking for a house for some time.

 Drew Foma'i Real estate agency was more than amazing. I can write a review for an hour on how happy I am with Drew, but want this read so I will get to the point. Drew is one of the most patient, kind and understanding real estate agent I have ever encountered! He was always eager to accommodate my busy schedules. He found me a perfect home! Drew is very knowledgeable and an expert in his field!!!  If you are looking for the absolutely perfect Realtor, Drew Foma'i would be the great and smart choice!

Alice Lo

We have worked with Sean twice before & always have had a positive experience.

His knowledge of the Real estate industry - his incredible negotiating skills & his genuine care and concern for his clients are phenominal. Sean asks you what your goals are and what you hope to accomplish & then he makes that goal happen. Simply put - Sean Delivers! His energy and positive attitude are infectious - we always recommend Sean to everyone we know! John & Debra Saporito

Andrie Huynh- North Tustin, CA.

Justin is an exceptional realtor. He worked with my husband and me for nearly a year to help us find the perfect property. He was very knowledgeable, patient, responsive, ethical, energetic and enthusiastic. We never doubted that we would get clear and honest information from him — and that we’d get it in a timely manner. We feel very fortunate to have found him and recommend his services without reservation. ~ Cliff and Marta Childress-Tustin Ranch, CA We had a horrible experience with our first realtor and so decided to switch to Justin because my fiance knew him. I could not be happier!! He has been amazing and has made our first time home buying experience so much better! He is incredibly prompt on email, which I love since it’s my most used source of communication while I’m at work. He has explained everything to us in terms that we could completely understand without making us feel like small children. I would completely recommend him to anyone else. ~ Ryan and Meri Lawson- Laguna Hills, CAWe’ve had the pleasure of working with Justin as our Real Estate agent, for two transactions (selling and buying) in the past several years. Justin is knowledgable, experienced, and hard-working. As an added bonus, he has a great sense of humor, and we thought of him as one of the family. He is a competent agent who we would highly recommend to anyone for all their Real Estate needs. ~ Rich and Sonja Walker- Seal Beach, CA We knew the moment we sat down with Justin, that he was the best listing agent for us. His presentation was extremely impressive. We interviewed 2 other agents before him and it was obvious who the top choice was. His marketing of our home was truly remarkable and everyone who saw it loved what he did! He will be getting many referrals from us for years to come. Thank you for everything you've done for us and our family! ~Dan and Barb Michaels-Huntington Beach, CA

Lori listed and sold our house in 2016.

We found her very knowledgeable and understanding that my husband and I were full-time working parents of two small children. I would highly recommend Lori! She went above and beyond for our family to ensure the selling process went smoothly.

Jamie and Brandon Wells

My husband and I worked with Parnaz to purchase our house in Turtle Rock, Irvine a couple of months ago and cannot say enough great things about her!

She’s not just knowledgable, approachable, personable, and communicative, but incredibly generous with her time. We appreciate her a lot and highly recommend her!


We had tried to sell our home in Orange, Ca for several years and after very disappointing experiences with other agents we found Cerise and through her hard work,  considerable knowledge and experience we were finally able to sell our home and make our move to Texas for our retirement.

 Kathy and Jerry Szmagaj, Crossroads, Tx

she is very professional with high skill and knowledgeable.

Every time I called her she responded my phone never gone to vice mail and answer my question with her friendly voice . I highly recommended her no question about it.

Rawhi Abuqamar

It was a right decision to hire Julia Yi for the purchase of our new condo.

She was amazing and explained everything and went over the contract with us step by step. Every day she gave us the update on the progress of the deal. She always had the latest information about all parties involved and gave me and my wife the information we needed. She also was always serious about what she did. If someone asks us if we know who could help them we would not hesitate to name her as a reference as she is an honest hard working realtor. Once again we want to thank Julia very much for such a great job. Mr. and Mrs. Jalali

John Jalali

Sold the house fast and helped to resolve any issues that arose during the closing process.

Tiffany Dorsey Shannon Kelly Brandon Ferguson

Lindzee has always impressed me, and I've known her for more than 15 years.

I had lots of choices when I decided to sell my home. I didn't hesitate when I made my decision to move, to reach out to Lindzee for direct and professional answers to my questions. She navigated my transaction through a few issues and we saw the finish line clearly. Moving is stressful enough, no reason to add to that with agency problems. I'd recommend Lindzee in a heart beat. A pleasure to work with.

Kim Lewis

I came in contact with Sean Jarne after receiving one of his advertisements, a neighborhood mailer.

I decided to list my house with him.  Sean was very responsive and followed up well with everything. Sean is easy to do business with. He took the initiative to get my property in sellable condition, he stayed aware of competitive listings and advised accordingly. I would use Sean again and refer him to anyone.Mike Lawton1084 SeaBluff DriveCosta Mesa

UTMOST PROFESSIONALISM , GREAT COMMUNICATION, SMOOTH PROCESS She was very punctual , honest and with excellent sense of the communication during the process.

She offered different options and helped us to choose the House which would serve us the best. She continued her support and shared her knowledge of the market during the whole transaction. We are highly recommending her and will difinitly use her services in the future. WE WISH HER THE BEST OF LUCK

Kathy Ensaf

When I decided to look into buying real estate for the first time, I was very nervous about everything.

Alex was very helpful in both finding what I wanted and in explaining the process. I felt comfortable enough to speak my mind, and he made me feel at ease with my decisions. While searching, I decided not to purchase due to career reasons and Alex was very understanding. He will be my choice of Real Estate Professional should I ever be in the market again and I highly recommend him to anyone else.

Alex Rezell

Lori is great.

..she has handled 3 transactions for me and my family over the years and has been great in all circumstances. I would never consider using another realtor. Lori Rocks!

Phil Faubert

My experience with Julia as my realtor beyond exceeded my expectations.

I cannot say enough great things about her! She made me feel like I was her only client and went above and beyond to make sure I found the perfect house. I never expected this type of excellent service from a realtor, especially during a pandemic! Julia is very knowledgeable about the market, super friendly and sweet, and incredibly sincere. I highly recommend her as a realtor to anyone looking to buy a home.

Jessica D

Once the home was listed with Lori, I didn't have to think about a thing.

She took care of everything professionally, and very quickly. The ease of doing business long-distance was amazing with all the technology she provided. The home wasn't even in her usual area, and everything went without a  hitch. She was incredible... I wouldn't use any other realtor in So Cal.


She has been absolutely amazing at becoming available when needed and flexible when we have asked.

She is personable and friendly with us and potential buyers. We were lucky to have her and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Jonas Adams, Sarah Adams Jonas Adams, Sarah Adams

I recently worked with Kimia purchasing a home and she was a delight to work with!

She is very patient and gave me the time and space to find the right home for us. She was always very prompt in responding to our calls/texts and she always has an answer to every question and a solution to every problem. Her positive and professional attitude along with her impressive knowledge about the real estate market made this experience so pleasant and memorable for us.I highly recommend Kimia to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home.

Nelab Q.

Emily was referred to us by a two of my colleagues.

We spend A LOT of time together as we searched for our perfect home. I must honestly say that I absolutely enjoyed working with her. Not only does she have a great personality but she has a fun sense of humor all while maintaining her professionalism. For four months, we spend 3-4 afternoons, evenings together per week. It became obvious to me that she was always listening and paying attention to features that my husband and I liked or didn't like. And although I felt as though I was being difficult or too picky, not once did she ever make me feel that way; which meant a lot. Emily is very familiar and it was evident that she knows what she is doing. She is advanced in that she is able to conveniently use e-sign and electronic documents to speed up the processes and submit paperwork. She is cognizant of the newer laws as well as rights of the purchaser. She was very kind to explain to my husband and I (several times) the process as this was our first home purchase. Emily is a girl that is always ready to go at the drop of the hat! She was always willing and able to work around our schedules and was always accommodating to our needs. She never once made a complaint nor did she ever make us feel as though we were asking too much. We shared many fun times when looking at homes and I must say, that we got along so well together that we were once asked by another realtor if we were family!?! We looked at each other and laughed stating that we had just spent a lot of time together. One thing that I feel I should point out about Emily that I appreciated was how she stopped by after we purchased our home. It was evident that she was excited for us... It is my plan to maintain a relationship and professional working relationship with Emily. I have recommended her to my parents who will soon be searching for a home and have shared her FB profile to many who I felt could benefit from her services. I would not hesitate to recommend her and plan to utilize her services for any and all of my real estate needs in the future! She is excellent at what she does, has a professional, yet personal work ethic and is a woman that gives 100% to what she does. If you're unsure about who to go with, Emily is your girl!

Erica Avalos

Parnaz was an absolute delight to work with.

To say that she is knowledgeable, efficient, available, and enthusiastic doesn't begin to describe her. We haven't been involved in a real estate transaction in 25 years and Parnaz guided us with kindness and patience through a shocking amount of paperwork as we sold our home and bought a replacement at the same time. We looked forward to hearing from her daily as she approached each new challenge with good cheer, joy, and humor. Through it all she has become a friend, who we love and highly recommend.

Roger and Arlene Garrett

Julie was amazing to work with.

She has helped us a few times over the years with rentals, and most recently a home purchase. She knows the area very well and is very accommodating to our busy work schedule. The most recent purchase was our first home in CA, and thank goodness for Julie...there were quite a few little things we never new about buying in CA and she walked us through everything. We will absolutely use her again in a few years when we upgrade!

Katie Halliday

We were impressed with Alex Yu’s professionalism: 1.

breadth & depth of knowledge of the real estate market 2. tireless efforts to find the properties that fit our parameters as well as ones that helped us clarify our specifications even more by looking beyond our initial parameters 3. accessibility no matter the time nor the day as well as promptness of responses 4. patience with our many questions as first-time buyers. Even more so, we were extremely appreciative of his courtesy & thoughtfulness in making us feel just as important as clients looking for much more major properties.

Hyuck Lang Kwon Kristianna Mia Suh

Lori was an absolutely INCREDIBLE real estate agent.

This was the first time selling a home in CA and Lori took care of me every single step of the way with her expansive knowledge and genuine care of getting the job done. She went far beyond the call of duty; she was my advocate and became my friend along the way. I will forever be grateful that she came into my life and held my hand through a very stressful and crazy time. She did it all with a smile and the standard “not a problem” after every request I had of her. When we need to purchase another home in the future, we will use Lori. We've already referred her to multiple friends! So impressed


If I could I would give Lori 10 stars.

She was very patient and led us through what could have been a difficult process. She went above and beyond. I highly recommend her.

Elizabeth O'Donnell

My brother, Bob Heberger, referred me to Sean.

He engaged me during that transaction much more so than the others I was in contact with. I had a wonderful experience working with Sean, he was on top of the transaction start to finish. He was able to obtain signatures from the absent owners, for one of these he had to drive to Vegas, and the other he took it upon himself to familiarize himself with the New Zealand notary process in order to get the documentation needed and close the escrow. I would absolutely refer others to use Sean, and I would love to work with him again. Sean, it was a super experience. You are a unique agent among lots of mediocre ones and a great role model for all other service professionals. Thank you for your efforts above and beyond! Thanks for your legendary customer service and please feel free to use me as a reference.John Heberger CPA/ABV/CFF/CGMA, CVA404 38th StreetNewport Beach, CA 92663

Sean helped us buy our second home in 2009, and our experience with him was fantastic.

  He is professional, knowledgeable and creative. He worked tirelessly for us while we toured numerous homes, and never tired of the extensive questions we had for him.  His extensive experience has prepared him to be a guide for the new home buyer or seller, and he never loses his focus on the needs of his clients. Sean is well respected in the real estate community, and he has a special trait we loved: he answers his phone day or night.  We highly recommend Sean to anyone entering the real estate market. Dr. and Mrs. HovdaCalifornia Seabreeze1801 Capetown CircleCosta Mesa, Ca

Nick was awesome in all aspects!

Persistent, patient, and professional! I will gladly refer Nick to my network of friends and family! Your company has a great asset in Nick, take good care of him! ROI. Many thanks, I am super happy with Nick and my new house!

Michael Burns

Sean was patient and understanding and very accommodating throughout the selling process.

  He is very attentive and I never felt like I was any less important even though I was just selling a condo.  Although it was a tough market, Sean was able to guide me and provide very constructive feedback to maximize what I could get for the condo.   He was a pleasure to work with and I would work with him again.  Robb Young

I choose Parnaz Nasibi as my buying agent over a number of other experienced realtors because of the passion and interest she showed towards helping her clients – which I witnessed in an Open house where I first met her.

She takes deep interest in her clients requirements and put in a lot of hard work and passion into her work. In my situation, under quite challenging time lines, Parnaz went the extra mile to make the deal successful. I found her to be intelligent, responsive professional who understands and cares for her clients. She was resourceful and was quick in finding out relevant information specific to the transaction. I will say that it was a truly positive experience working with her.’

Dr. Gautam

Parnaz is a very loyal, educated, and intelligent agent who you would be lucky to have on your side!

As a first-time homebuyer here, I was in the market for some time, my previous agents failed me time and time again and I never get to close any deal. Parnaz stepped in, and we closed a deal within 30 days in this competitive market. She fought for us in the process and made sure we are getting the best deal.

Sina Askari

Kim was excellent to deal with.

Very knowledgeable, pleasant and was very prompt with follow up. I would highly recommend her!

Michael Dunne

I met Sean when I called on a mailer he sent me in the Harbor Cove community.

When I decided to sell I had a lot of choices for a realtor, but we felt Sean was the best choice. The entire time working with him he was professional, efficient, communicative, and thorough. He ended up getting me $30,000 over the same floor plan that sold the month before down the street from me. I will be using Sean for all of my real estate needs in the future and I would recommend him to anyone else thinking of moving!

George and Carol Taylor

I first found Sean through one of his advertisements in my neighborhood.

  Our experience with Sean was really great!  He was always available when we needed to check out some homes we thought we would like.  He took really good care of us, his clients, like we are family.  He far exceeded our expectations as our realtor, it was fun working with him.  I would definitely use Sean again, he is very reliable, always on time and best of all he is always available.  He makes things happen and that is very important for clients.1801 Capetown, Costa Mesa

Torre and Alma Niles

We worked with Drew as our realtor in purchasing a home earlier this year and had a fantastic experience.

His knowledge and understanding of the market proved true again and again and we learned quickly that we could trust his judgment. Shopping for a house with Drew was fun, and he helped make the process of buying a home in an intimidating market seem less daunting. Even in this seller’s market, we had an offer accepted in 3 weeks of looking. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase and would gladly work with Drew again.

Silvia is a very nice person and also working very hard, she offered us a lot of detail informations and help us to sold our house at our expecting time,we get along very well, me and my husband we both appreciated her so much!

Lori,We appreciate all the hard work you put into getting us our new home.

We're so happy.Lots of Thanks

Steve and Chris

Yelp may say Alex works until 22:00 but that is false information.

Alex is the hardest working agent whom I have had the pleasure to work with. I don't think he sleeps. I am ashamed to have made frantic late night calls to him only to have him patiently addressing my concerns. Prior to meeting Alex, my wife and I worked with a few different agents but we are extremely happy we went with Alex. He always puts our interests first and always gave us his honest opinion even if it contradicts ours. Throughout the buying process, everything was handled with a sense of urgency which we really like. His communication is top notch as we were always kept in the loop - even when he was on vacation. Going through Alex, we got everything we wanted from the house and then some.

Kara Lau

Working with Rob was a pleasure, he took care of everything and it sold faster than I'd hoped for.

He negotiated a deal that was just about the first asking price and closed all cash in a 10 day escrow. He even answered some real estate question for me that were unrelated to this sale.

Horwich Family Trust

“I’ve known Sean for many years now as we went to high school together.

He sold our home quickly and was awesome! He had extensive knowledge of the market and the neighborhood. Sean made everything very easy and simple for us! I would recommend to anyone looking to sell who is looking for a realtor to provide professionalism along with great feelings of assurance the whole way through! I plan on using Sean in the future!”

Aimee Atkisson

We have known Silvia and Walter since our daughters were in pre-school together, almost 25 years now.

 We consider them our friends and our realtor of choice.   They are one of the hardest working couples in realty. In July 2006, my husband was offered a job transfer to Illinois with his company, and he had approximately six weeks to get there.  We owned a home and I thought it impossible to sell our home in that short amount of time and he would need to go ahead without us.  Not knowing where to begin and how this whole selling a house worked, we called Silvia and Walter for advice.   With a very tight schedule before us, Silvia and Walter quickly arranged multiple open houses and realtor viewings to give our property maximum exposure. They not only sold our home for us in four weeks, they also referred us to a realty office here in Illinois that they know would take good care of us.

Patrick C.

Suzann was a hard working agent anyone can have.

But not only will she be on top of everything you requests or need, but she will go above and beyond to make sure her client is getting what they need, and protecting them at the same time. Her personality, charisma, knowledge, and professionalism was just cherry on top!

Grace Mayor

She was always available when I needed questions answered.

Michael LeDoux

It was a pleasure to be represented by Lindzee Lane.

She is professional, kind, hard working and an honest agent. She was very accessible and always happy to provide feedback and or answer my questions.


I met Sean at his open house in Newport Crest.

  I decided I wanted to look in other areas and he showed me homes in Corona Del Mar and found me one I love.  He was always responsive and worked quickly to address the issues we had with taking possession.  He was very friendly and a good listener.  I would use Sean and refer him to others!  Thanks Sean! Heather HealyCorona Del Mar

We met Sean many years ago when he first started his real estate career.

  He kept in touch consistently through many years.  After experiencing his tenacity and work ethic, when it was time to sell a house the choice was easy to make.  Sean Sold the house for a higher price than any other similar home in our community had ever sold for.  When it comes to selling another home we look forward to working with Sean again.  He told us exactly how he would market the home, and he did everything he promised and more!  

Lee and Vicki Scheely

Julie is first class.

I worked with her over the past several months. She is professional, reliable and diligent in getting things done. I highly recommend working with Julie.

Scott B.

In every way an agent could, Julie went above and beyond for us in the sale of our home.

While we still occupied the house, she helped minimize the disruptions to our family life. She coordinated minor repairs and gorgeous photos and made sure our house was at its best when we went to market. Once we moved out, she was over there making sure the house maintained its curb appeal and any unexpected things were handled right way. And it when it came time to pin down the finer points of a deal, she kept us informed and educated so we always felt comfortable with the process. Five stars is not enough.

Bryan Powers

I had just gotten married and needed to find a nice little house in south Orange County within my budget.

The market was starting to pickup and houses were getting harder to find to reasonable prices. Walter and Silvia were there working hard to find me the perfect place, and after I found it they worked very hard to seal the deal with the seller's agent.  The property I settled on was a 3 bedroom single family house that was in a short-sale situation, making it a little more tricky than a standard equity sale. Both Walter and Silvia were able to keep the lines of communication open with the seller and make sure that both the seller and the bank were working toward getting a deal completed. Walter even personally helped me take pictures for our own inspection because we felt that the professional inspector missed a few details. Overall Walter and Silvia are a great team that made the stressful situation of buying a home in short-sale as easy as possible. I will definitely use them again if I need to make another purchase.

James P.

Sean was a pleasure to have as a realtor.

He stood by me and never gave up on me for over 18 months. He was punctual and answered all my calls promptly. He has a delightful personality and we get on very well. Sean has become our friend and I kn ow we will always stay in touch. I would definitely use Sean again, he went way beyond the pail for me. I would definitely use him again and I will always refer him to my family and friends. We wish him every success in the future!

Elaine and Russell Sarkin

Very professional.

Will find answers to any question. Works really hard to find the perfect house for you. I would recommend Lori to take care of all your needs.

Please do this testimonial for me .

Thank you My experience working with Ms. Khosh has been one of the most fulfilling professional relationships I have experienced recently. Ms. Khosh represents a honest, hardworking, and compassionate professional who would be there to support her client’s all the way. She is goal and result oriented and with her wisdom and knowledge of her profession, she will make the best decisions for her clients. I am very grateful for her support and hard work to make my dream come through and find the place I call home now. Thank you Ms. Khosh for your dedication and support!!

Mitra Golriz

Very reassuring and easy to work with, I cannot stress enough that most realtors tend to be aggressive and will try to push whatever figures only to benefit themselves.

However, Julia thoroughly worked with me professionally and efficiently as a leaser. Although I had very limited time to move due to work, they were able to find me a very friendly leasee and were able to help my move transition smoothly. I am sure I will be continuing to work with her so long as I will be leasing my place.

Peter Baek

Paul is a realtor in action.

He is a true professional that cares for his client's interests and makes sure that everything is going well. Our experience with him as our buyer's realtor went smoothly. We were able to find and purchase our dream home with his help and perseverance. You can't go wrong with Paul as your realtor. He really deserves a "pat on a back" for a job well done! My wife and I definitely recommend him.

Matt B.

Mike has been an amazing, professional, courteous, and responsive agent.

He's been a life-saver -- having worked with me on a very tight schedule and difficult challenge with a rental property. We look forward to working with him when we are going to purchase a house next year!

Grace Pineda

Parnaz is excellent agent and helped us find nice home.

She is very responsive and takes good care of clients. Always available for questions. Provided all the information needed and negotiated the options for us.

When my parents needed me to help sell their home of almost 50 years, I knew Lori would be the one to call.

They had not made any significant modifications to the home since the 80s, and it would take a strong knowledge of the market to know where to price it and what we really needed to do to get it ready for sale. We did not have the time or the budget to make any significant improvements. Lori worked her marketing and staging magic to put its best foot forward. There was a lot of interest in the home right from the start, and we were able to sell it for a great price!


Rob is phenomenal.

He stuck with me through an extremely touch sale.

Drew Fomai helped us sell our income property a few years ago.

He arranged showing of the property in a very courteous and timely manor. Even after having a tenant that was not very cooperative. He always managed to convince the tenant to show the property in a very graceful and convincing way. After an offer was accepted, Drew kept us up to date and connected with his staff to complete the escrow process. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family for the purchase or sale of a property.

Thanks to Kim, we live in a home we never thought possible!

 We have worked with Kim for years, beginning with a rental when we returned to Orange County, then purchasing a South Huntington Beach home in a great school district. Over time, we began to outgrow the house, but didn’t think we could afford anything bigger. Talking with Kim, she helped us understand local market trends and prompted us to act this summer when the market was hot for homes at our price point.  We actually received 3 offers the day it was listed and sold for a sweet profit! I still can’t believe it!  Then Kim helped us get a great deal on our dream home. Almost twice the size, closer to the beach, and in the same (excellent) Edison High School District.  Bottom line: Kim is a true professional, a Coastal OC expert, and has been a dear friend since the day we met.  Thank you, Kim. We appreciate you more than you know. Sincerely,Kathy & Sean Heaton

We were referred to Sean by Jason and Lisa Fairchild, they recommended you for your positive attitude and proactive approach.

We appreciated the time you spent working with us while we relocated across country and your flexible approach. Thankfully we were able to find a great house which met our needs in a short time frame despite "sellers' market".I'm glad we had a chance to work with you and appreciate all your help.Ben and Janet Peets Huntington Beach, CA

"I met Sean through his advertisement he mails out to the Newport Crest community.

Sean was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and as a result we felt like we were in great hands right from the start! He led us through the negotiations with his expertise and deep understanding of the process- which can be daunting, especially as we are on the East Coast. Sean kept all of his promises- from his confidence in our selling price right through the completion of closing. All in all, Sean made our experience pain free and pleasant. I would highly recommend Sean Jarne to anyone looking for a skilled realtor that inspires confidence through the selling process. I interviewed three other realtors but chose Sean for his expertise and confidence about what he would deliver, and he exceeded our expectations! Without hesitation we would gladly recommend Sean to our friends and family as well." Tom and Laura Colandrea- 14 Ima Loa

Cerise helped me at a time when I was most vulnerable.

  My mother had Alzheimer Disease and could no longer live on her own, and we were in a position that we needed to sell her mobile home.  Cerise helped me navigate the ins and outs of selling (since I had never done this before), the new owner, and the mobile home park management.  She assisted me in getting the home ready for sale, did a great appraisal and found a new owner for the asking price with 2 weeks. Cerise was professional as well as helpful.  I highly recommend her realtor expertise.Amy Morales, Orange

Justin was totally professional and very helpful to a novice like me.

everything went well and the one glitch we had he resolved quickly. very good representative for First Team. Dottie Cardullo

I highly recommend Kim.

She had not ever handled a transaction in Trovare but she quickly picked up on the knowledge she needed. She was very responsive and kept me informed which was important as I never got to our unit . She also went beyond the basic services we needed being away the whole time the unit was listed and sold. Although we never met she quickly became a friend. and someone I relied on for advise.

Sean has always been a pleasure to work with. He's very hard working, pro active & a straight shooter! Through several real estate transactions he has become "Our" realtor & a friend.We would refer Sean because he gets things done!

I wish I had the time to write a dissertation about Lori Robnett - instead, I'll be concise.

My fiance and I could not be any happier with the service and support we received from Lori - she was a true professional. Lori did an amazing job of understanding what we were looking for and catering her approach to our needs. In the end, we found an amazing place to call home, and the time spent with Lori only added to our experience. By the time it was all done, she felt like family. She will absolutely be our agent in our next search. 


Kimia was a delight to work with in selling our home.

She is a terrific negotiator, always putting her clients interest first. She is a hard worker who is totally committed to her client and passionate about real estate. Her online and offline marketing strategies are extremely effective and her  work is quality. She answered all our questions throughout the process and helped us sell our home for top dollar. Also, her team of stagers and interior designers she provided to us did an outstanding job enhancing our home! We are very happy and will always go to Kimia for our real estate needs!

Danial Karandish

Krystal is an extremely professional real estate agent who does a great job gathering data on the market and helping her clients identify the right houses in the areas and price ranges they are looking for.

Krystal has excellent negotiating skills and does a great job gathering intelligence on the current homes and the offers provided and helps her clients remain competitive, while also respecting their personal criteria for buying a home. My wife and I bought a home within 2 months of our search with Krystal in one of the most competitive sellers markets in history without getting caught up in an bidding war at a reasonable price with reasonable terms. Krystal is highly recommended for serious home buyers in this current market to give yourself a competitive edge over other buyers. Sean & Ingrid

"It has been our pleasure to have met Ethan.

 From the beginning to end, the process was seamless. We wouldn't have asked for any better service than was given. Ethan has been nothing but professional, knowledgeable and patient. He sent us listings as soon as it was on the market, worked with our schedule to see the homes. Handouts were provided for every tour which helped us understand the market better. Ethan also made sure everything went smoothly with the loan and escrow office on every step, assisted us in providing contractor referrals and many other things. The service he has provided more than exceeded our expectations of a realtor. We absolutely recommend him to everyone."

Denise was a stranger on Day 1 and became family soon there after after a life changing event during our search process!

Denise is extremely responsive to e-mail, phone and text and is working around the clock. She showed us LOTS of homes as we couldn't find exactly what we were looking for. We were about to give up our home search, but she continued looking until we found our home! We are settled in now and so glad she continued to guide us along! Denise is a strong and determined woman who will not only go the extra mile for you, but takes it further by driving off a cliff for her clients!

Bruce I Winters Karen E Winters

Parnaz is a great negotiator and does not give up!

She sold my home in October 2021 and found me possibly one of the best deals on a single family home in Laguna Niguel which I just closed escrow on a few days ago. I wanted to both sell and buy quickly to take advantage of the low interest rates and she was amazing and got me the best price for both homes all within a 2 month time frame, which is really incredible, especially in this insane market. I will highly recommend Parnaz to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!


Lori Robnett is the best!

I have worked with her in the past and she is knowledgeable and professional. She went above and beyond to make sure that the property I was selling was presented in the best possible way. There aren't enough adjectives to describe how truly amazing she is.

Brad McDonald

 12/19/2012 Paul went beyond the call of duty in his efforts to find exactly what I wanted, and to make sure I knew ALL pro's and con's so that I was sure to be informed and happy with my decision.

I ended up with the perfect property for me, and Paul was a huge part of that. His knowledge, expertise and patience made all the difference. Furthermore, he was very personable. It felt like he really cared, and wasn't just out to make a sale. After my long home buying process(since I take forever to make decisions, and since my preapproval was limited), and all that Paul did to make my home owning dream a reality, I developed a friendship with Paul that has touched my life, and he was great with my children as well! What a fantastic home buying experience! Thanks Paul! :)

“Ethan Sun was our realtor for both the sale of our home in Tustin Ranch, and the purchase of our new home in Irvine.

  He was an absolute pleasure to work with!  His skill and market knowledge make him an expert in the industry.  We were very impressed with his ability to speak many languages such as Mandarin Chinese and Japanese; this made it helpful when communicating with many different buyers and sellers in our community.From handling our open house, to meeting us at various homes to tour, Ethan was always prompt and very professional.  We would not hesitate to refer Ethan to our colleagues, friends and family, and we will be using him again for our future real estate purchases.  He is the best in Orange County!”

It was our pleasure working with Julia.

She is customer focused, pays attention to details and is willing to support in finding the best home for you ! She is smart, meticulous and extremely professional. We had very specific requirements for our house and she matched everything we wanted. Really Thankful for her support and looking forward to work with her again !

I met Nick when I asked him a question about investing I found on Zillow.

I was not the easiest client. After a couple of dozen houses in a couple of days. I found two suitable candidates, put in offers on both. Nick negotiated a deal on one that I could live with. His father, Ski assisted and it was a pleasure to have him around.

Drew and his team have been so amazing.

Buying a home can be very stressful but Drew makes it as smooth as possible. He truly listened to my husband and I and we couldn’t be more pleased with him and his team!! Very efficient, friendly and honest!!!

Fallyn Sahadat

We met Sean because he had been marketing our area since we had moved into it 14 years before.

Sean was very professional, thorough, and confident we would sell our home for a good price and in a fast timeframe. We would definitely recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling. Sean walked us through selling our home, step by step. He was always available to us when we had questions. Most importantly, I felt he did a very good job negotiating with the buyers to get us those last few thousands of dollars at the end of the transaction that make the difference.

Steven and Teresa Laszlo

So 20 years ago I asked Lori If She could find me a place to buy (Tired of renting) within my budget and Specs.

Honestly, it's the 2nd place I looked at, which I was reluctant because It wasn't quite the area I was Used to. Lori mentions She loved the Area. I gave it shot and got the price I wanted and bought. 20 years I've been here. Thank You Lori For My Home


Julia is one of the most professional person I have come across.

..period!!! Upon sending my request on a home search, her response was super quick that for one I couldn't believe that I can get a response so fast. Her friendly nature, attention to our requirements, sorting out the right houses that fit our family needs, has been phenomenal Setting up appointments for open house visits (multiple during the day), calibrating with home owners, her efforts have been 5 star With the house finalized, we are lucky and fortunate to have worked with Julia in this journey and we look forward to working with her again in near future. Thank you, Julia! you are a Rockstar!!!

I had been seeing Sean's advertising in my neighborhood for years and I decided to call him and use him for the sale of my house.

Sean was very professional and did a great job. I would use him again and recommend him because he knows the territory and got me the highest price ever in my neighborhood. 18 Seaside, NB

Parnaz has been extremely helpful in selling my home.

She helped me buy two homes and sell this home. She is always on top of things and responds immediately for any questions. I am so glad she was my agent. Thank you Parnaz


I met Sean when he sold my neighbors home.

I used him to purchase a home and to sell my home. I have purchased 6 homes in my life and Sean made a difficult process seem easy. This purchase was the easiest of them all! I would refer Sean in the future to anyone buying or selling. He sold my home at full price in 1.5 days with no private showings. He knows what he is doing!

Rob Anthony

Cameron was excellent to work with and the process of selling our home went very smoothly.

Cameron was always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. We would very high recommend Cameron and his team with the sell your home!

Brad Meredith

Rob was extremely helpful throughout the process.

He positively answered all of my concerns. Rob is an excellent realstate agent.

Michael Rodriguez Rosie Rodriguez

I don't believe we could have found another Realtor who would have worked as hard to firstly find us what we wanted and secondly make sure we got the best deal possible.

David Sims

We interviewed 3 realtors before choosing Sean.

It was a wise decision! Sean worked very hard at selling our house - from giving us advise before listing, in holding multiple open houses & in keeping constant communication with us, the buyer and the escrow company. Sean is also fun to work with & easy to talk to. We recommend him highly. Thank you so much for you expertise Sean!Tom and Sandi Miller2083 Valley RdCosta Mesa, CA 92627

When I decided I wanted to sell my home I contacted Sean and quickly learned he was persistent and interested in my goals.

Sean was knowledgeable with a good attitude, and I felt he put me first. I know I got the best results and no one else would have made it happen like he did.  I would recommend Sean for anyone who is looking to get the job done right!Linda Jensen12 Tribute Newport Crest

Rob did a great job negotiating for us.

He has a great sense of market pricing.

Todd A & Amanda J Starker

Parnaz is a professional, knowledgeable , hard-working, and friendly agent.

She has been very helpful in buying our home. As a first time home buyer, We had lots of questions about the process of buying and she did an excellent job making sure that we understood the process, important deadlines and made sure that there were no unexpected issues with the closing. She is easily accessible, always happy to help, and the most supportive. She responds immediately for any questions. We appreciate her patience and attention and recommend her whole-heartedly.

Siamak F

Emily was highly recommended by a fellow colleague when I began my home search and I fully understand why.

This was my first home purchase, so to say I was a bit overwhelmed and cautious would be an understatement. Emily provided an excellent home buying experience and I could not be happier with the end result. She provides stellar service and support when needed and was never shy to add additional education or experience with certain details or purchasing factors that were beyond my comprehension. I am so truly thankful that I was referred to this professional and now friend, and I will introduce her to any friends family or clientele that express that they are in the market to buy or sell. Thank you Emily!

Derrick Blanchette

I knew Sean prior to the purchase of our new property, he had been sending us mailers for years.

  Sean was friendly, supportive, well informaed and professional.  He listened to my needs and made changes when I needed to go in a different direction without the blink of an eye.  Sean was always on time for appointments, he was extremely attentive to my needs.  I would recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling a home.  I have already refered him to several people and will continue to do so.  He is absolutely the best real estate agent I've known!

Linda Clough

This is the second time I have used Kim for a real estate transaction.

I plan to use her for every real estate process in my future. She is prompt and professional. Her attention to detail and diligence to the task at hand, are second to none. It is wonderful to concentrate on what I want and let Kim work out the details. Her experience and tenacious presence combined with her positive attitude make her an invaluable part of any property transaction.

Teresa Black

We could not be happier with our experience with Lori.

As first time home buyers, we started out the process not knowing much of anything regarding the market or mortgages. Lori helped us every step of the way. When we found our dream house, Lori negotiated a deal that we were so happy with and  was on top of the inspection and repair process. Lori helped the process with our lender as well and made sure that we were on track and on time with our closing process. She was very knowledgeable about the area we wanted to buy in and was a huge help giving us the information we needed to make our transition into our new home perfect. Lori still provides us help even after we have been moved in for almost two months now. We cannot recommend her enough.


 12/27/2012 In March, I began looking into buying a new home.

One of my friends at work told me about his home purchase experience and advised me to call Paul Monte at First Team. Paul was my second agent. At my first meeting with Paul, it was very clear he had experience and knowledge of the So. Cal market and had top-notch realty expertise. We first started looking for homes in Corona, CA and finally ended up in Orange County. I purchased my home in Aliso Viejo. Paul was also instrumental in finding another lender after a minor problem with the first mortgage lender, making it a smooth purchase. As a first time home buyer, Paul was awesome to work with. I admired his professionalism and expert advice throughout the entire process. Best of all, with Paul you're the Boss- he makes it his job to help you get the home of your dreams.   I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a hard working and highly effective real estate agent. Thanks Paul. Roland L.

The team of Silvia and Walter are highly recommended by myself and my wife.

We were walking a neighborhood we liked and found an open house being held by Silvia and Walter - they were fantastic from day one - they walked us thru the property and explained the area to us. We liked them so much and we liked the house so much we decided to list our condo and put in an offer. We used Silvia and Walter as our condo listing agent as well. Best decision we could make we found out. They worked so hard - kept us in the loop at all points - and told us the truth straight off. Integrity comes to mind when I think of their work and treatment of the process. It took months of negotiating with the bank held house and they fought hard for us the whole way - all while balancing the timing of the sale of our condo - how they made it all happen is beyond me. We highly recommend Silvia and Walter - honest, hard working, and very knowledgeable of the area - if we were to list our house - we would not hesitate to use their services!!!!

David O.

We met Sean prior to living in the area while he was showing a property in the area we had just started looking in and he became a familiar face.

He is easy to get a hold of, helpful with keeping us informed with everything happening and always ready to create a solution for any challenge! We would absolutely refer Sean to anyone we know. He was so helpful when we were feeling stressed or concerned. He helps redirect and build confidence. We will use him in the future!

Arron and Erica Marshall

Sean was recommended to me by my brother, Morris Sederoff.

Sean was familiar with the area and condo complex we had a property in know as Newport Crest. He was chosen by us because of his expertise and knowledge of the complex. Sean was competent, friendly, patient and dealt with money, legal probate issues excellently. I would recommend Sean because he went the extra mile to sell this condo. He dealt with cleaning out the condo and dealing with the legal requirements of a probate estate sale. Excellent service! I appreciated the individual service that I received.

4 October 2016 Kim Schumacher is an exceptional Real Estate Agent, armed with critical market expertise, business savvy, and an engaging enthusiasm for her work.

  My husband and I recently closed on a Huntington Beach house, and were so glad to have had Kim representing us.   The home-buying process is beyond complicated; add in the challenges of Orange County’s tough real estate market, crazy high prices, and a number of unexpected snags along the way… This would have been an overwhelming stress-storm for us, but instead- we cruised through the process confidently knowing that Kim was looking out for us. She tackled each obstacle head-on and kept her cool every step of the way. In the end, we have our forever house and happily-ever-after here. -along with a dear friend for the long haul. Kim Schumacher has our highest esteem and recommendation as a top-notch Real Estate Agent.

Lori is knowledgable about all aspects of buying and selling a home.

She is a great consultant as well as a negotiator. Also she knows the Orange County area and housing market better than most. I have referred happy clients to her and will continue to do so!

Lindzee was amazing to work with during our very lengthy search for a home.

She really understood our needs and was always quick to respond. I couldn’t imagine using another agent for any of our future real estate needs in Orange County. She cares for her clients and genuinely gives her 100 percent. She found us a great home and the process was seamless.


Sean was best at being patient and understanding and was a "tower of strength"Sean exuded confidence, seemed to know his stuff & how to see us thru the short sale process and last but not least, saw us through our periods of doubt or "buyers remorse"I would recommend Sean because he is very resonable & professional at the same time.

Jutta Thorn

Dear Lori,   David and I would like to thank you for the effort you put into finding us a home.

The fact that we own a home now still has not sunk in. We love our new home and all it entails (so far). Thanks again, David and Ceseli Fred

Sean is very knowledgeable about the So Cal housing market.

He was also very personable & friendly. I was looking for a straight-forward Realtor and Sean fit the bill.Sean made himself available whenever possible to view homes. He was very patient, understood our needs & always respected our decisions.Sean is a Great Realtor who is committed to his work. His phone is always on to answer questions & he does an excellent job of keeping his clients informed during the buying process.Rhett and Ashley Olsen. 

My wife and I retained the duo of Drew Fomai and Ariel Westberg at First Team Real Estate for a purchase of an office building.

 Both outstanding agents lived up to the billing of their outstanding reputation and professionalism as First Team Real Estate agents.  They researched, counseled, collaborated, negotiated and represented our interests as buyers zealously.  We highly recommend both Drew and Ariel for your future.real estate transactions, commercial or residential.  Thanks again, Drew and Ariel for representing us.

Danny Soong

This was my first house and the process (due to seller and his agent) was less than desirable - problem after problem.

Lindzee was very professional and kept a positive attitude through the whole process. She explained things so I understood and stressed less. Lindzee has knowledge of the local area, was responsive to calls, emails and questions. I was very fortunate to have worked with her and will always refer her to all that are in need of a real estate agent.

Kerri McLin

Cerise sold my house in Tustin in 2008.

She was knowledgeable about how to best sell my home in a depressed economy.  Cerise helped walk me through the selling process even though my house was in a trust. She was clear, concise and patient with me her customer. I'm confident Cerise will continue to be successful in whatever endeavor she so chooses.   Jeffrey M. Johnson, Orangevale, CA 

Alex was an amazing realtor.

I met with him based on a friend referral and decided to choose him over another realtor I had already met with. He brought his A game to the table. His initial presentation was awesome with comps etc and he really knew his stuff. Alex was very personable and really paid attention to EVERYTHING I said. He got my house sold with one open house. I could go on and on about how awesome he is. I have already referred my friends and family to him. All around GREAT GUY and got TOP DOLLAR for my list. THANK YOU ALEX.

Jamye Le Ann Holt.

Easily the best agent I’ve met.

Was a very well-prepared and researched advocate for our house. Listened well, kept in constant contact, dealt with our myriad of questions patiently and got us top dollar for the house we sold. For the house we purchased, he successfully helped us defeat several other offers with competitive but not too $ bid. He’s passionate about his craft and First Team has a tremendous asset in Alex Yu!

Laurence Chow Esther Chow

Lori did a fantastic job helping us find our home in Costa Mesa.

She was referred to us as a local expert in the area and I'm glad we decided to work with her. I loved that she took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for. She was patient and never tried to sell me on  something I didn't like (which I did experience with other agents), so I appreciated that very much. I want to thank Lori for always thinking about our needs first and then pointing out pros and cons so we could make the best decision. We ended up with a beautiful home that we love and she was a pro at negotiating the best price for us. Lori is also very thoughtful; she gave us a beautiful gift to welcome us to our new home and she continues to check in on us even now (it's been 10 months since we purchased our home). Our friends and family all know about Lori and we refer her any chance we get. Thank you Lori for all your help. We are very happy with our purchase.

Jenni and Steve Robles

I'm very happy to work with Alex.

He is really professional and helpful!

Xuexi Zhang

Thank you for the kind words.

This was  the longest and most difficult escrow I have ever had. Glad to be done and to have worked with a great group of professionals. Kim you should consider joining  our team you would really fit it. Let me know I can show you around the office.

Rob Marroche

We purchased a condominium with Paul's help.

He was very patient and very knowledgeable and gave us detailed answers to all our questions. He was always available and was very quick in sending us properties as our search evolved. we are very appreciative of Paul's help and would not hesitate to recommend him to family or friends.

Shawn Collins

Alex was very proactive reaching out using various marketing tools and lists to get potential buyers in for viewings.

Additionally, he didn't just bring anyone who wanted to look. He vetted them to make sure the property's attributes were a good fit (otherwise it's a giant waste of time for seller, realtors, and buyer!). I always felt like my deal and I were at the top of his "to do" list. He's an amazing listener. Great service through EVERY STEP of the process!

Donna Holden Living Trust dated November 9 2007

I initially contacted Sean after receiving one of his mailers.

Sean was great. It was a smooth experience. Something we very much needed based on some recent bad experiences with other agents. Sean made it seem like it was easy! Which I really appreciated. Sean is also great when it comes to providing advice and support. I highly recommend him.

Joseph and Jennifer Rhoton

We decided to go with Mike after interviewing him.

His professional presentation, knowledge of our market, marketing plan, and team were clearly the best choice. He was always available and very responsive for our many questions. Mike is by far the best realtor we’ve worked with, and his team was spot on with the fast track transaction of selling our home. We could not have been more pleased with our service, and the thoughtful and caring way that Mike helped us to navigate through the whole process from listing to managing multiple offers and closing. 10 stars wouldn’t be enough on our scale!! We gladly give our highest recommendation!

I met Sean when I called him off one of his signs.

  Sean's follow up is impeccable, his hard work and dedication to his clients best interests and to be an ambassador for First Team Real Estate is evident in everything he does.  Sean's never-ending confidence is also a positive thing to have with a transaction as difficult as mine was.  I would refer anyone and everyone to Sean.  Sean is knowledgeable and hard working as well as fair.  He would be a benefit to anyone selling or buying a home. Matthew Greco, Newport Crest 

Dear Lori:We wanted to take the time to formally thank you for all of your help in selling our house.

  In April, when Matt and I decided to sell our home and move back to Illinois, we had no idea what was involved, but with your expertise and knowledge, we were successful in selling our home within just 7 weeks of it going on the market.We interviewed a number of realtors, but decided to hire you because of your many years of experience in the real estate market, because of your knowledge about the College Park neighborhood, and because you promised to take the burden off of us and let you do all of the work to sell our home.From the very beginning, you went above and beyond what was expected of you.  We took your advice and replaced the roof and updated other features inside the home, which made all of the difference in the world.  Thanks to all of the coordination and planning you did, the work was done and was accomplished in a short amount of time.  Once the house was listed, you concentrated on advertising, holding open houses, and showing our home to ensure that our house was seen by all.  We truly believe that it is because of your tenacity, skills, and professionalism that we were successful in selling our home so quickly.You exemplify what every client hopes for in their realtor and more.  We won’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends, family, and neighbors!  Thank you again for a job well done.  We wish you continued success in the future.


We were for four years in the market to buy a home in OC.

As the time goes byes the price of real estates gets up by %40 , While we were so disappointed 😥 suddenly the God sent us an angel 😇 in IKEA store which we met her out of the blue accidentally . We get her biz card as we called her consequently , She arranged a foamily meeting and recorded all family member needs and wishes professionally in a tables and numbers. After a short time she locked 3 homes for us which all sellers was excited to deal with us. we were in limbo to select which one when in the past; no seller was interested in us. Now all doors was opened and we we were happy to have more choices to select the best in order to get value for money and location. Finally we offered to the best as we had the best agent whom the God sent us . Thanks God for Pary = the Parnaz the angle of realtors and an honest person in the earth from the sky and Gallexy.


Jennifer Green is absolutely the best.

   I have been a client of hers for over a decade now; in all of this time she has always been a true professional.  She works with you making sure that you are happy with the final product.  Not only is she competent and knowledgeable, but she is also very personable and a pleasure to work with.  When you do business with Jennifer, it’s like working with a friend.  I can’t be more pleased with the outstanding service she provides.

Laura Huber

Alex came to us as a recommendation.

He made our home selling experience easier than we imagined. His team quickly found buyers for our listing. He would give us frequent updates on the progress of the sale. He was available at any time through out the process to answer questions. I highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. We will definitely be working with Alex in the future.

Marites A.

Of course we are going to brag on our son but, even with that, I was impressed with his performance.

He was able to stir a continuous interest in our listing and brought an array of qualified buyers to us for our property and business. Escrow was set up with an excellent officer and closed very quickly for both business and property. I can not imagine how this process could have gone any better.

Mike Farina helped me and my family choose a home after our short sale.

  Mike was patient with us and checked in with us daily.  He also understood what we were looking for, and was able to provide some advice in choosing a quality living area.  To add value, Mike Farina made sure that all transactions were complete, and he even came over and programmed the garage door openers for our family.  Mike is the best.  I would definitely refer him and ask him to help me look for a new home in the future.   Kristine, Irvine, CA

We used Sean to sell our home and buy our new one.

We are so happy to have had Sean as our realtor and his concern for what we were looking for.  I will so miss his warm smile and his " personality".I will not hesitate to recommend him to my friends & customers.  Thanks again Sean! George and Joann Rice.14 Escapade CourtThanks!

Drew is amazing!

He has helped us purchased three amazing properties and more to come. Thank you, Drew!


Severine is great to work with!

Beth Yarnall

Sean was the listing agent on the house we wanted.

Sean communicated with the owners and helped us get a great deal. He's easy going, communicates well and gets things done and was really helpful in our transition & moving! Evan and Amy Chalmers

Drew is absolutely amazing!

!! He really gets it! He is very welcoming and wants to understand your needs. He really cares about finding your forever home. Very punctual, communicates regularly giving you updates as the process moves along. I remember texting him at 10 pm about some of the properties we viewed that day, what other realtor would do that? He is really on top of his game. We are currently in escrow and about to close soon! I would highly recommend Drew if you are looking for any type of property.

Alex was very helpful in putting my home on the market and getting me into a new home.

His communication skills are exemplary. His negotiation skills are first-rate. His attitude and kindness were appreciated, and inspirational. Alex had an awesome team, too, comprised of experts and go-getters in their field. Thank you Alex and First Team Real Estate for helping my wife and I realize our dreams of HOUSE home ownership!

Alan Robert Irons Katherine Jean Irons

Dear Lori, I just wanted to say Thanks for everything you did!

You made the process alot easier for me. Again you went above and beyond what I expected. Thank you, Steve Chiappe Lake Forest

I met Sean at an open house - he is the most energetic person I've ever met.

He works incredibly hard on behalf of his clients. In addition, he has vast knowledge of all the ins & outs of real estate & uses that knowledge to achieve the very best of everything for his clients. Finally, his sense of responsibility and ethics is a breath of fresh air in this day and age. I would absolutely refer Sean. He know exactly what needs to be done to sell a house - so trust him! He will get it done.Connie MayfieldLake Forest, CA 92630

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer Green for over three years.

Jennifer is an intelligent, capable, dedicated and personable young woman. She always has sensible reactions in all the circumstances I've seen her in. I feel she is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity.

Carol Roberts

Rob knows his trade like few others.

He is a dedicated professional and advocates for his clients above all else. Rob is especially adept when it gets into the nitty gritty of contracts. His attention to detail makes sure that the client's interests are fully represented and accounted for, giving them the maximum amount of leverage in the negotiations. Simply stated, Rob stands well above the crowd of real estate professionals and we wouldn't work with anyone else.

Jacob & Erin Winett

Dieter did a remarkable job in helping us sell our property.

He was very responsive in finding multiple buyers after our selected buyer from the initial offer changed their minds. He guided us through the negotiation process when we had multiple offers to maximize the final offer exceeding the asking price. Definitely I will use Dieter again!

stanley wong

We had an unique experience with Lisa during the process of purchasing our condo.

Right at the beginning Lisa has demonstrated a very professional approach and support in assisting us during the negotiation with the seller from a big picture to the very small details. Lisa has been diligent, responsive and always followed up with answers to our questions in every areas. She is very knowledgeable, honest and tries to find the best alternative to protect our interest and plays a key mediation role with all paries involved including escrow and lender. A big thank to her partner Dieter who is also very helpful and kind to us.

Hung and Van Nguyen

Greetings Kim,   Kim,  at one point or another in our search for a home, Vikki and I worked with 4 different realtors.

  You were by far the most professional, the most friendly and the quickest to respond.  It was a pleasure working with you.  Thank you.   J-P Lyons

J-P Lyons

Hi Lori!

I just wanted to thank you for your diligence and competency in selling our home. I will keep you in mine for future real estate transactions for myself or others who are in the market. It was a pleasure doing business with you. We wish you all the best! Sincerely, Diane Robbins College Park

Biljana was absolutely amazing during my buying experience.

She was always available and super agile getting information on properties we were looking at, and executing offers super fast. I definitely owe it to her for finding my dream property!

Marko Milosevic

Matt and Sean were incredible to work with.

Selling a home is at times a very emotional process, but they provided a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area and were able to display a tremendous amount of expertise. Quite simply, they made the process of selling a home less unnerving... much like having a 500LBS gorilla guarding you on a walk down a dark alley.I would recommend them to friends, family, strangers, and even enemies. They are a rare breed, the ones willing to roll up their sleeves and do the dirty work. Most real estate agents would try to make a quick transaction, less work, quicker for them and a quicker commission. Matt and Sean, however, take the time and necessary efforts to maximize the sale price of your home. It's almost as if they takes it as a personal challenge to sell your home x% higher than the last highest transaction. Throughout the process, they were always in constant contact, returned calls as promptly as anyone could, and the advice that they provided was in my best interest.

Jimmy Tsai

Kim is a phenomenal agent – the best we worked with.

She is extremely organized – showed up with printouts of each property and was very knowledgeable about the Quail Hill area. Kelly White

Kelly White

As a first time home buyer, my wife and I had bad experience working with other agents and had nearly gave up finding a home as we could not find an agent that we could trust and have the confidence that the agent had our best interest in mind.

Fortunately we had the opportunity to meet Cameron at an open house and he is unlike other agents! He was very sincere, thoughtful, knowledgeable, attentive to our needs, prompt to our appointments, has excellent follow-thru, and is a true professional! My wife and I would highly recommend Cameron to anyone buying or selling a home. We have nothing but good things to say about our experience with Cameron!

Eric Chen, Katherine Chen

 4/28/2012 Paul Monte helped us find the home of our dreams.

 He was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. He was always on time, in fact, he arrived 15-20 minutes prior to scope the home before showing it.  He worked around our schedules. He was the first agent we met and the only one we worked with. He worked hard to make the home buying process as smooth as possible for us.  Paul was very communicative and responded almost instantly to phone calls and emails. He was a gentleman through and though and we are happy we worked with him.

 "Iam very happy with Paul Monte as my family Realtor.


It was a joy to work with Parnaz both in simultaneously selling our home and buying another.

She is knowledgeable, available, and cheerful all while explaining hundreds of pages of documents needing our signatures. We’ve worked Parnaz at both ends of real estate transactions and highly recommend her.

Roger and Arlene Garrett

I highly recommend Lori.

My sister and I had to sell our parents home in Laguna Woods when they moved to an assisted living home. We live in North Carolina and Lori was a huge asset for us.Her knowledge of the community is superb, she had to personally bring contracts to my 91-year-old stepfather for signing since he did not have a computer. She truly goes above and beyond. She made the process so easy for us. She even arranged for some people to clear out the house for us. That was huge since we do not live there and I was under a lot of stress traveling coast to coast every other week.I truly could have not done this without her. She is pleasant, funny, easy-going, and a Godsend. Worth every penny.The repair negotiations went smoothly as well due to her knowledge of the community and superb contractors on her list.


My wife and I needed to sell our place and find a replacement home.

 In the process of getting ready to sell our home, there was a number of improvements we had to make to get the highest price possible.  One huge benefit of working with Silvia and Walter was they had so many great contacts.  Everyone from a professional painter to a simple 'handyman'.  I would also like to state they were always careful NOT to suggest improvements for the sake of 'improving'; they sat down and discussed this with us from the beginning.  Additionally, they helped negotiate the best price with these contractors (etc.) and helped schedule when the work to be done.  They were there all the way through the process, even dropping by our place during the work.  They wanted to make sure it was all being done to our satisfaction.   Their knowledge of the housing market in our area helped us price the home correctly and we received and accepted an offer within a few days after we put the home on the market.   Whenever we wanted to look at homes, they were always willing to drive us to any location we wanted to visit.  Once we put in an offer on a house and it was accepted, Walter and Sylvia helped us go through 2 escrows, (selling and buying).  They were always available if we had any questions on any documents.  You always felt safe knowing that Walter and Sylvia had your best interest when dealing with the buyer of our place and the seller of the new place.   We would highly recommend Walter and Sylvia as both a buyer and seller agent.  They are professional and always have your best interest.

Chris H.

Rob is amazing!

We are a 3x customeraa

Erin Heizer & Eric Nathan Enders

Working with Silvia and Walter was a wonderful experience.

Not only did they get my house listed and sold quickly and for a great price, but they helped me to find my new home, as well. They are incredibly hard workers and always available to answer questions or provide guidance. I truly did not expect the selling and buying (concurrently) process to go so well...but here I am months later living in my new home, all thanks to my awesome realtors and now, friends.


      I met Sean through my girlfriend Mia.

  Everything was great, Sean negotiated the price of the home I wanted to buy down and worked around my busy schedule to make the closing nice and smooth with no problems at all.  I would use and refer Sean to anyone buying or selling a home! Mike WenzelCosta Mesa, CA

We know Terrie for over 22 years, she is one of the most honest person that we have ever dealt, when she looks at properties for us she is treating it as if she is buying it for herself.

we have bought millions of dollars from her all with good results. we wish her all the best as she is an excellent agent for us.

Mr Badii, Ray

Parnaz was my agent when I recently bought my house in Orange County.

Since the first day she was patient with me and my picky taste and prepared the related docs/materials meticulously for each house hunting trip. When I made the first offer she explained in details all the terms in the contract. Once my offer got accepted she communicated with the sellers’ agents effectively to protect me and secure the best deal possible. During the end of the process, we learned that the sellers’ agents had made a mistake in the formal description of the house. Parnaz communicated with the agents and made them take responsibility and compensate me for their mistake. Overall, it was a great experience having Parnaz as my agent and I’d recommend it.

Ahmad Reza Hedayat

UTMOST PROFESSIONALISM , GREAT COMMUNICATION, SMOOTH PROCESS She was very punctual , honest and with excellent sense of the communication during the process.

She offered different options and helped us to choose the House which would serve us the best. She continued her support and shared her knowledge of the market during the whole transaction. We are highly recommending her and will difinitly use her services in the future. WE WISH HER THE BEST OF LUCK

Kathy Ensaf

I was referred to Sean by his mother, an agent I have worked with in the past.

Sean was very professional and pleasant to work with. He showed encouragement and willingness to help in any way. Sean helps his clients prepare their home and then gets them the top price. He is very knowledgeable about the market. We would recommend him as first choice to anyone!!

Michelle Trezzo-Squires

Alex and his team are great!

I spoke to Alex and he answered all of my questions. Alex is an incredibly warm and positive person which added to my experience working with him. He doesn't just care about getting the sale, but wanted to know about my real estate goals. He cautioned me from getting into some investments that would have cost me my time and money. Alex is also very involved in the community and spreads positivity to all those he comes in contact with. I highly recommend Alex and his team for any of your real estate needs!

"Thanks for Finding a House for us last minute.

.I mean in 3 hrs! We really love our place & have a great payment... Looking forward to buying a place this year w/ Paul."Tom

 8/24/2012 Although complex world of Real Estate appears to be a simple task, it needs to be  handled by a professional in the field.

A Realtor,  who not only possesses the Legal Knowledge and Financial Expertise , but is also competent and committed ethically. Mr. Monte, as a great educator, prepares and walks you through the "adventurous journey" of the Real Estate process with ease and reassurance. I  recommend him as a professional and a high-value person.

Kim has been very helpful and kind.

Her knowledge and professionalism has been greatly appreciated. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with any property transaction.

Terry Black

Dear Lori, We cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did representing us our home on Starbird.

We hardly signed the contract with you to represent us on our property when you were out marketing the property with phone calls and with the best flyers I've seen. They were first class with color photos and a through description of every amenity the house offered. You took the burden off us and ran with it for a most successful outcome~ There was so much going on in our lives at the time and you handled everything so professionally and with such integrity that we were able to focus on other tasks at hand that were demanding our time. Your escrow people did a great job with follow up and in such a timely manner to complete the transaction. You exemplify what every client hopes for in their realtor and we are so grateful to have selected you as our realtor. We wish you much continued success and will recommend you all our friends. Our best, Don and Peg Howard 2721 Starbird

Kimia is everything you want in a realtor, and is already dominating the luxury real estate market.

She is responsive, extremely professional, a tough negotiator, and pushes to get the deal done in record time. Would highly recommend using Kimia for any of your real estate needs!

Riley Smith

Parnaz's is very personable and listened well to my housing requirements and needs.

She did her homework before recommending any listings. After a few viewing she knew exactly what I was looking for and arranged a list of houses to see. I was excited about every single house she showed me and almost all met my requirements. She prepared comps, rental value, demographics, and history for every single property. Once I decided on what I wanted to make an offer on, it was done professionally with my best interest in mind. She did an excellent job negotiating a very good price in a sellers market. I am grateful for having Parnaz as my agent and I highly recommend her.


She has worked with us for many years, and she is very honorable.

Guity Badii

Parnaz is a professional, knowledgeable and friendly agent.

She went extra mile for me to make my dream home happen in October 2020. I enjoyed her commitment and caring attitude at the beginning, during and after the closing. If you need an agent that is on your side, pick her. She is the real deal. I strongly suggest her to everyone. A friend of mine worked with her before, and he was also thrilled by her experience.


Sean was recommended to me by my relative, Nancy Smith.

  He was very professional and knowledgeable and kept me informed throughout the whole sale/escrow process.  I would definitely use and recommend Sean to anyone selling a home!

Jay Terrell

I have worked with several real estate agents in California, Hawaii, and overseas and, by far, Lisa provided the best and warmest service I have experienced.

She went above and beyond time and again to help us with whatever was needed in our sale. She is incredibly knowledgeable about nuances in the local market, well organized, and sympathetic - everything that is needed to feel confident about the process and results, and at the same time minimize the stress of both. I would give her 10 stars if I could. I can't recommend her (or thank her) enough!   

Sharon Tomlinson

My wife Tiffany and I had the great pleasure of working with Mike during the search for our new home lease.

We originally met Mike while viewing one of the homes in our search and were so impressed with his professional yet personable demeanor we decided to engage Mike to represent us moving forward. Mike is extremely knowledgeable about the Irvine market, very patient, responsive, and trustworthy. Mike was so exceptional that we look forward to having him represent us on our new home purchase in the future, and would happily refer and highly recommend him to all of our family and friends when they need some help with their real estate. Having met over 25 real estate agents during our search, we would confidently say Mike sets the standard for excellence! Brian & Tiffany Sergio

Brian Sergio

Paul's expert knowledge and ever-so-helpful demeanor provided us with an exceptional leasing experience.

We found Paul's responsiveness and organizational management of all the details to be professional , prompt, and courteous. We've leased 5 properties in 5 different cities in the last 13 years and the experience we had with Paul was by far the best of them all. Thanks Paul! P.S. We hope to be ready to buy a house in the next 1-2 years. When we do, Paul will be our first call. :)

John Eric Wagner

Paul Monte made us feel as if we were his only clients!

! He was very professional and continuously updated and communicated with us along the entire process (from start to finish). When Mr. Monte was recommended to us, we were told he was a really good Realtor. Mr. Monte not only met our expectations, he exceeded them! He went above and beyond his responsibilities as a Realtor. It was truly a great experience buying our first home with Paul. He stuck by us, gave us resources, kept positive, and continuously worked with the sellers. THANK YOU PAUL MONTE!!!!

Braulio and Nancy Guzman

My husband and I knew Lori was the realtor for us the first time we met her.

She was honest, direct, knowledgeable, and did not try to push us into hiring her that day like every other realtor we had encountered; we weren't sure realtors like her existed anymore. She listened to what we wanted  and what we could afford and found the perfect property for us. She and her staff were also extremely responsive to emails and phone calls throughout the entire process. Thanks Lori! 

Amy and Carl Stuetzel

I met Sean at an open house in Newport Crest.

  It was great working with him, not just because of his personality, but because he has a wealth of knowledge regarding the local market, in addition to resources which helped me secure financing quickly and at a great rate.  I would absolutely use Sean again because he is plugged into the Newport Market and kept me abreast of all upcoming properties that fit my criteria, many times well before I was able to see the listings through online resources.  Thanks Sean! Chris ZentnerBaruna Court, Newport Crest

As first time home buyers who had no idea what we were doing, we lucked into working with Suzann.

She was phenomenal to work with and is incredibly knowledgable, patient, punctual (unlike us!), and professional. She's also just the nicest person and really cared about our outcome. She gave us great advice in terms of our offer, terms, and how we should generally proceed. We bought well below the asking price and got very fair concessions. Her supporting team was also great and pushed the process along (the selling team was not so great, so they needed some prodding...). I'd recommend Suzann to anyone!

Rebecca Guise

"I had my house listed with a couple agents before Kimia.

I was so discouraged by the lack of commitment, and professionalism, that I took my house off the market for 8 months. We had our house in escrow with previous agents, no follow up, we had offers, that didn't respond on, and showings they did not show up for to show my house. To top it off I had our price put in MLS incorrect, incorrect information, and unprofessional photos. Then we got Kimia. She listed our house right as COVID hit. She has beautiful photos and video. She was always professional, showed up to meet the buyers, and their agents. She never pawned showing our house on anyone. She was involved and committed from day one. You could not ask for a more diligent and committed agent. She was always upbeat and positive. She listened to us, and worked with us during COVID. She was and is the best choice we could have made!"

Lauren Lindgren

Drew was an amazing agent!

He helped sell our condo, and went out of his way to make sure there was constant interest, including following up with leads. He even saved us money by virtually staging the empty condo to give potential buyers multiple ideas of what a furnished unit would look like. He always followed up with our questions in a timely manner and never gave us any doubts about putting in the effort. If you're looking for an agent that goes the extra mile, look no further!

Tushar Patel

Kim has helped me make 2 purchases and 1 sale in the past 5 years.

She was extremely helpful in my first purchase, which I greatly appreciated as it was my first home. The second purchase was more challenging as it hinged on sale of the first property and the 2 were done concurrently. I would never do that again, but that was no fault of Kim's. I continue to look to Kim for advice and information about the market trends. She is great to work with.

Monica Twitchell

Great communicators, very responsive to our questions and always kept our interests in mind.

A very proactive team.

Gary Louis Maxwell Kathryn Jean Maxwell

Julie handled the sale of our rental home in Trabuco Canyon.

With us living 300 miles away, it was hard for us to handle some of the things that pop up during the sale of a home...and with a tenant occupying the property, there was some extra care needed. Julie worked very smoothly with our tenant in coordinating the open houses and showings. She consistently went above and beyond to make sure that there were no issues for us to worry about. I honestly don't know how we would have been able to sell our house without her. If you are looking for a true professional that cares about her clients...then you have found her with Julie Brim. I highly recommend you call her.

"I was looking for my first property and I live in a 3bdr condo that I STOLE for 427,000 thanks to the endless negotiating that Paul did on my behalf.

I love my new townhouse! Thanks Paul..." David Kanehann

Mike was extremely nice, worked with us as we switched from trying to buy to renting, and was very accommodating the whole time.

I would absolutely refer Mike to anyone that needs a real estate agent in the Southern California area. He made us feel very welcome, gave us honest opinions when asked, and overall worked very hard towards anything we asked. I look forward to working with Mike again once I go to purchase a home.

Kris Harrington

Ski has been a consummate professional for over 45 years that I have had the privilege of knowing.

I would highly recommend Ski and his team.

Gus Alba/Richard Albert

We met Mike at an open house when looking for our first home and asked if he would help us in the process.

He went above and beyond and treated us as if we were his own kids looking to buy their first home. He was patient, informative, and always looked out for our best interest. When we decided to buy our second home, we knew exactly who we wanted to help us. Mike is absolutely amazing. He will be helping many of our family and friends in the future I'm sure. We can not say enough wonderful things about our experiences when working with Mike.

Kacey Nicole Pratt Erico Paolo Mendoza

Parnaz managed to successfully market and sell our investment property in Irvine, under very complicated circumstances.

She did a great job from the beginning to the end, every step of the way. She ensured that the house gets maximum exposure to potential buyers; she spent considerable efforts and time on marketing through all possible channels, like websites, social media, newspapers, email marketing, Postcards, and her own creative marketing methods. She was always available via phone, text and emails as needed. She meticulously worked towards solving the unexpected problems that came up during escrow period, and had our best interest in mind, while she was fair to the buyers as well. All along she worked very hard and we found her to be professional and kind. If you were looking to sell your house I would strongly recommend Parnaz.

Sayeh Afrasiabi

Excellent to work with!

Julie was thorough with every aspect of the transaction. She did an amazing job staging the house and keeping in contact with me regarding prospective tenants. I would highly recommend Julie Brim!

Dana Young

Julie was great!

She was easy to work with and always available to show us properties at our convenience. Her knowledge of the market helped us find the perfect home at the right price. Her attention to detail throughout the closing process was exceptional. I would definitely recommend her services. Brian & Theresa R. Laguna Niguel

Cerise did a great job in representing us in the purchase of our new home.

She was knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. Once we had a home under contract, Cerise was very good at assisting with the escrow process. We would highly recommend her services.

Paul & Catherine Amante

Hi Lori, I wanted to take this time to formally thank you in your representation of our purchase of 2726 Starbird in Costa Mesa.

I know I put you through one of the hardest deals you have ever been involved in and for us it was quite an emotional ride as well. If it wasn't for your knowledge of Real Estate transactions and financing I doubt we would have been able to get the home of our dreams. We want to thank you deeply from the bottom of our hearts for all your help and your truly wonderful negotiating. We could never have done it without you. I must have asked you a 10000 questions and each time you took the time to explain to me the whys and why not's. We wish you continued success in the future. Thank you, The Pearlman's

Sean is dedicated, hardworking & diligent.

Sean is always on "your team" and works tirelessly to achieve great results for his clients. Sean's personal service was the best! We felt we could call on him anytime, night or day, during the buying process. Sean is a great person with a solid work ethic. He goes above and beyond for his clients.Rael and Adelle Isacowitz

Dear Lori Robnet,We are finally settled down from our move from Southern California to Northern California and just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your help with the sale of our home there.

You were a true partner in facilitating the sale. You paid close attention to all those details which can make selling a home difficult operation.During a very stressful time for us, your professionalism in carrying out your responsibilities as our agent was beyond reproach... Your attention to all the details responding to phone calls and keeping us abreast of everything that was happening certainly took a lot of the pressure off us.You are a very pleasant and helpful person to work with, You did everything possible in order to accommodate our needsYour knowledge of the area is unsurpassed and your community contacts helped us get our house ready for market, Thank youI would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends who might need a REaltor in the future.

Mary did a superb job of marketing two properties for the Weiner family Trusts.

She was successful at selling our duplex on West Bay Ave. in Newport Beach and our family home on West Oceanfront in Newport Beach We would highly recommend Mary to you for your real estate requirements Robert Weiner

Robert Weiner

She is really perfect, she acted same as friend not as agent…


I met Sean because he has sold a lot of properties in my neighborhood.

 My experience working with Sean was a good one, Sean was very professional and did a great job representing me in the sale.  I convinced Sean to list my house for 45k over what he thought we could get for it, and Sean sold my house at the first open house for full price.  I would recommend Sean to anyone thinking of selling.Dan Ryan1892 ParkviewCosta Mesa

Her professionalism and commitment to you will be evident at your first meeting! I highly encourage you to meet with Julie, you won’t be disappointed.

nadine froesch

We had many options to use a more seasoned local area expert, but we chose Cameron because of his positive energy and passion and his approach to marketing our home was different.

Cameron hired a professional photographer and professional videographer to create a top notch brochure and a video that captured essence and beauty of our home. The video also included a drone flyover of our home and the neighborhood. In addition to publishing the pictures on Zillow he capitalized on the exposure of social media and posted the pictures and video on Facebook and YouTube. While Cameron’s marketing strategy was instrumental, his attentiveness to us and our needs made the experience with him successful and enjoyable. Cameron’s follow up and attention to detail was superb from start to finish. He always took notes and took action immediately on our concerns and questions. The escrow process was seamless and we closed on time without issue. Cameron was a pleasure to work with and without question he will handle our real estate transactions going forward. Cameron is a true professional and we highly recommend him!

James Hall, Maria Hall

Julie listens to what I want in a home.

She understands my physical limits and requirements and makes every effort to find the perfect combination of requirements and desires. In addition, Julie is a great person. I trust her judgement to the ends of the earth and know that she has my best interests in everything she shows me. I have recommended Julie to friends and will absolutely continue to do so. She is amazing.

Edie Powers

I've known Jennifer for quite some time, she is a remarkable woman.

Her integrity and professionalism are impeccable. I always enjoy our conversations, she is not only very knowledgeable but witty and has a wonderful sense of humor. She has set high goals for herself and takes pride in her business ethics. I believe she will accomplish everything she sets her mind too.

Patty Groebner

"I met Sean through his consistent advertising and he has a reputation of selling houses in Newport Shores.

Sean's initial presentation was very thorough and he gave us lots of ideas to help our home sell!  We challenged him on every step and he always stayed calm and realistic. We said if anyone could sell our house, it would be Sean, and he did! Our expectations were high and demanding. We expected honesty, communication, and follow up. Sean provided all of these. We would definitely use him again!"

Kevin Schmidt

Dierdre is a dedicated, knowledgeable and qualified professional.

She guided, advised, informed and explained my Seller responsibilities and the forms I was required to sign. She is also a wonderfully genuine and generous person. Dierdre was always responsive and available. She went "above and beyond" to sell our home.

Janet Kovac

My husband and I had the great pleasure of working with Drew Foma’i back in 2012 and again this year in 2020.

We were extremely satisfied with Drew’s work ethic and great personality that we only considered him as our realtor to help us sell our home and help us buy a new home. Back in 2012 my husband and I were looking for our first home where we would have the space to start our family. Drew did not disappoint when it came to taking all of our must haves into account and was extremely patient with us as we navigated through our first home purchase experience. This year, we were ready to sell our beloved first home and move into a bigger home, now that we have two small children. Drew’s expertise, insights and advise helped us prepare our home to make sure it would sell for what we thought it was worth. After several consultations with Drew we decided to put our first home on the market. Drew was very considerate of the current COVID situation and respectful of our space. He was deliberate in his marketing and had appointment only viewings for potential buyers. It is because of Drew that we sold our first home at a RECORD SETTING rate. My husband and I could not be happier. While we were in the process of selling our home we were also on the hunt for our new home. Thanks to Drew we were successful in finding our new home all while selling our first home. We can not thank Drew enough for making this entire process as seem less and stress free as possible even under all the COVID regulations. His constant communication, responsiveness and transparency made our relationship with Drew feel like he was family. Putting all our faith on Drew was easy to do because of his character, work ethic and positive yet realistic outlook. Having Drew be our Realtor was the best decision we made back in 2012 and again this year, 2020. We are proud to be second time home owners to a beautiful home. We don’t know how Drew was able to make us feel so at ease through selling and buying a home simultaneously, but he did it. Thanks Drew! We will forever be grateful for you!

HUGE THANK YOU to our realtor and friend Lori Robnett.

Lori has been working with us since October to find the perfect house. After months and months of looking, Lori found us EXACTLY what we were looking for. Our family could not thank her enough for all the hard work she put into this. She is  the best realtor ever. If you are looking to make a move, call Lori Robnett. I promise you will not be disappointed????????. Our daughter is super happy with her first jump into our new pool. We have used Lori for the buying and selling of 5 houses so far. With the help of Lori, we are in our perfect dream home. 5 stars

In today’s business world, almost everything you do requires working directly with someone.

  It’s called Customer Service.  Unfortunately, there is a large number of people who have no idea what that is.  I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Julie Brim who has been nothing short of amazing.  She is always on top of her business, sending listings as soon as they are available, and responds quickly both by phone and/or text.  Her follow through skills are just as incredible.  With Julie, it is “all about you”!  She is pleasant to work with and very thoughtful, always with you in mind.  When your business with her is concluded, you leave knowing you’ve gained a friend.  I love my new home – thank you Julie! Linda M. Laguna Woods

Alex is nothing short of amazing!

He put this very nervous first-time buyer at ease through the entire process, answered all my questions promptly and clearly and always had my best interests at heart without being overly pushy or putting any pressure on me. He kept me informed throughout the entire negotiation process and wouldn't let me make any emotional mistakes or blunders during the offer and negotiation process. Eventually I just let him do his thing and he negotiated a deal way beyond any of my wildest expectations that I had at the time we made our initial offer. You can just tell he is a genuine guy who cares about helping his clients find the right home for the best price and the man actually has fun doing it. He was an absolute joy to work with and I literally cannot say enough good things about him!


When I met Sean he was the seller's agent on a property I was interested in.

I had originally wanted to use open listings dot com for my realtor, but Sean was great from the get-go. Though he represented us both (buyer and seller), Sean guided me through the process and I feel protected my interest as necessary. Great first time buying experience. Sean was polite, steadfast and great at his job. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling. Joe Brothman 231 Prospect Park Tustin, CA 92780

I found Sean Jarne through one of his advertisements.

  He got the job done.  He was well prepared, he was ready when my home fell out of escrow.  He worked hard in finding a new buyer asap and had kept in touch with backup buyers and had them ready.  I selected Sean because he is assertive and understands the city of Newport Beach and the market very well.  He advised me on the changing market trends and helped me meet my goals.  I would definitely use Sean again and I would recommend him without reservation because he gets the job done right!

Parnaz cares about everything and she fights for you respectfully she is so organized and on time in the appointments.

She reminds you any action you should do towards your benefits she is really the best agent I have ever had I really appreciate her.

Afshin Khorami

Dear Lori,Thanks for hanging in there with us and making the sale of our home "painless!

" We appreciate all your help & patience Thank you again

Rich and Karen

Dear Parnaz, You made it happen!

I wanted to thank you so much for all your efforts, expertise and patience to sell our property!! We know it was not an easy task, but you made it happen with outstanding hard work and a positive attitude throughout! We really appreciate you! I would recommend you as a great agent to anyone who wants to sell their property! Thank you again and I wish you all the best!🙏🌺

Azar Afshar

Lori was the key to our quick and very successful sale of our home.

The marketing plan she executed; which included professional staging, video, photos, print/digital media and open house team, was incredible and on target. I truly believe that we could not have achieved our goal without her. Selling a home that you have lived in and loved for 30+ years is an emotional and stressful process. She has an excellent understanding of what it will take from a timing standpoint, work required to achieve your goal and a professional team that cares about your property. She was frank, honest and caring. She anticipated and guided us through every step of the process. I am definitely planning to use Lori for our next property purchase!

Terrance L Dunnam & LIsa Dunnam

I toured almost 20 properties in Newport Coast with Ryan towards the end of last year.

He was always on time, dressed very professional, and had a great local understanding of the area (he lives where he works). Every time we met with the listing agents, he always interacted with them as friends  even when he hadn't met them before! Such a personable guy... Even though I didn't end up buying due to unforeseen circumstances, Ryan will be my go-to agent when I buy hopefully at the end of this summer!

Sean Thomas

I initially found Sean from attending one of his open houses.

Sean was on top of everything from start to finish. He followed up for months until he found me the home of my dreams at a great price! Even the sellers agent raved about what a great job he did! I would use Sean again in a heart beat, he is very professional and on top of everything. Andrew Spath Marcus st, Newport Beach

Sean was recommended to me by my friend Marc.

Sean is an amazing professional, very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I am recommending him to all of my friends!

Chris Mitchell

I knew Sean from High School.

  I contacted Sean when I saw a property online I liked, He was very prompt and available so we went and saw the property and decided to move forward and put in an offer.  Sean was very prompt and always available for any questions I had.  He explained things clearly and was very good at following up with things we were concerned about.  Sean made the process easier for us.  I would recommend him to anyone as he is very trustworthy! Ryan and Courtney McGuffin5504 E Vista Del Rio, YL

Thanks Rob.

Emily and I have been friends for many years.

She has helped me in the past with real estate transactions and I have total confidence and trust in her abilities and professionalism.


As a director of a very large Pre-School/Daycare I have had Gregg teach us & keep us up to date on our First Aid & CPR training for the last 6 years.

He is a very good, energetic & knowledgeable teacher. My staff enjoys all of his classes he has done with us. I would highly recommend him in the future to anyone who needs or wants his services.

Rob was the best at working with us to find our new home.

Rob truly understands the market and always puts his clients first. In each home we were able to talk about trade off, potential home improvement projects and if the lost price actually reflected the value of the home. I would strongly recommend Rob to anyone!!!

Julie successfully navigated my close in less than 2 weeks. Her knowledge was great and follow thru excellent.

Mark Hamilton

She is the most professional agent I have ever known Very hard working, extremely knowledgeable and fair.

Our property was sold at the highest price in the shortest time I highly recommend her. A true five star agent!

Not only a real estate agent who is passionate and knowledgeable in her field, but also a friend who is caring and sincere in helping us to find the right home for our family.

She will go above and beyond and we were truly lucky to have such a wonderful person looking out for us!

Anand Nilakantan

Sean was recommended to me by a lender I knew.

  I decided I needed to do a short sale on my home in Dana Point and I was very nervous about it.  Throughout the process Sean was very professional and no nonsense.  He was very efficient and kept me up to date on what was happening.  I was very nervous about getting it done in a certain time frame which we did and Sean was able to put me at ease by explaining what was happening to me in a way I could understand.  I would absolutely recommend Sean to anyone thinking of buying or selling. -Nevine Safyurtlu33852 Del Obispo, Dana Point

Scott was very professional and attentive throughout the whole process.

I will for sure recommend Scott to friends, family and acquaintances.

Alex C & Michelle L Nikolaou

"I met Sean as he used to drop flyers/info off at my door for several years.

When I finally decided to rent my home out he agreed to work with me to get renters until I decided to sell. Sean was great to work with; he was persistent but not annoying! He did everything required and extra. He was patient and thorough . I appreciated his consistent communication. I would use Sean again and believe that he works hard, is conscientious, keeps his word, and knows Newport Beach!"

Deb Buzzick

Very creative.

Lawrence Distler

I have already completed a survey, but here is another one.

Michael had almost an immediate response to my inquiry on new homes. Where as to date never got a response from any other realtor. His eagerness to help me is why I went with him.

Angela Tinsley

I contacted Parnaz on a whim after casually going to an open house that she hosted.

Less than 6 weeks later, I closed on the first home that I made a bid on and without paying a premium for it. Parnaz is an exceptional negotiator. She was always well prepared and she knew the market very well. She anticipated many issues ahead of time and she worked proactively to resolve each issue in a way that worked best for me. I think her best skill was discovering what I truly valued in a home and a community, and helping guide me to the perfect home. She turned a potentially painful transaction into a memorable and rewarding one. Parnaz Nasibi at First Team Real Estate is absolutely the best. Both during and after the process, she had many professional contacts (architects, builders, house cleaners, etc.), lined up to help me transition into the home. Parnaz truly loves what she does, and that matters. If you're hoping for a positive, relatively stress free home buying experience, then Parnaz is the best. She is warm, trustworthy, knowledgeable, organized, responsive to questions/concerns, and is willing to work around the limited time schedule of a buyer who is coming from out of town! Far from feeling pressured to buy, I felt that she really wanted to make sure the home suited my needs. When the time came, she was a great negotiator and I felt she was on my side. She got a sense of how aggressive I wanted to be, what things were deal breakers for me, and never did she come back to try to convince me or entertain a counter that wasn't in my best interests. It was a real pleasure working with Parnaz. From the beginning I knew I was in competent hands. Prepared for a long arduous journey of buying a home in an unfamiliar market 400 miles away from my former home, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I found and bought my home in Irvine. Parnaz’s ability to work with the seller's agent was an incredible advantage. And, she was always responsive to my calls/texts/emails--especially when time was of the essence. Parnaz understands that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. She is a highly seasoned professional dedicated to exceptional service for her clients. She seemed to take pride in the relationships she has built over the years and always worked tirelessly on my behalf to help me get into a home I am thrilled with. I am happy to have worked with Parnaz and enthusiastically recommend her to people looking to buy or sell their home.

Katherine O'Toole

We very much liked working with Justin.

He presented in a professional yet friendly manner that we appreciated. He was very responsive to our questions and requests.

Bennett Meltzer

Sean was very aggressive to sell Orange and I was glad he represented me in several additional exchange to go into Orange buy is an example.

Sandra L. Strasbaugh

With the recent, sudden passing of my mom, my siblings and I found ourselves in a whirlwind of grief and overwhelm.

Where to start? What did we need to do in order to sell Mom’s house as she had requested. Lori Robnett sold a home that my husband and I had owned, so she was the one that I turned to. Lori consulted with us on the repair work and had a list of people who could help. Most of my siblings lived out of town, so much of the work of cleaning out the house and making repairs fell upon my shoulders. Lori showed up almost daily to see how I was doing, and to make sure that I had everything that I needed. Sometimes, all that I needed was a good cry, and she even provided her shoulder for that.Once the repairs and renovation work was completed, I was able to hand the keys over to Lori and head home to Arizona. Lori began marketing the house immediately with gorgeous print ads and even our own web site. Within one week of the first open house, we had several offers, one of which was significantly over our asking price. Lori kept us all informed with emails and phone calls as we entered and closed escrow.Lori was an invaluable asset to me and my family as we navigated our way through a very difficult and emotional time. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and professional, and she makes things happen. I would, without any hesitation at all, highly recommend Lori Robnett to anyone who requires a real estate professional.


Lori,Thank you, for helping us sell our home.

We were very grateful for your phenomenal expertise, and even though things were a little stressful at times, all in all, it went very well.

Rebecca and Nick

I cannot entirely convey how grateful we are for Severine’s professional support, she handhold us trough the overall process from bringing us options according to our needs and budget to getting a great deal for us, a great knowledgeable real state professional

Sean was recommended to us by my niece, Heidi.

In the beginning, we had a slow start but as more and more issues, problems, and questions came up Sean was right there returning phone calls, finding out answers and helping us connect with the right people. He was definitely committed to helping us resolve all the issues of buying a house. We really appreciated him driving all the way to Tarzana for us! He returned phone calls promptly, and never turned away from the problems. Sean is not afraid of confrontations, and ready to tackle difficult problems that arise from buying a home. We would most definitely use him again and recommend him. PS-Thank you Sean for being there for us and to continue working past this difficult seller and his lack of honoring the contract!

I had the pleasure of working with Kim when I relocated to So Cal last summer –though I wish I’d met her that spring!

My husband and kids were coming to join me, and I was working on my own to settle our housing situation. We’d chosen SW Huntington Beach, an area I know well; I fine-tuned my on-line real estate searches and anticipated a quick and easy transition. Unfortunately, that was not the case! I quickly learned that the market in this area is tough to predict. Plus, there are a lot of variables to consider when relocating with kids. After much stress, a few unpleasant surprises, and several homes that were suddenly off the market, I finally connected with Kim. In less than a week, she helped get us into a PERFECT place. I only wish I’d been working with her from day one! She’s very good at her job and totally dedicated to her clients. I’d be thrilled to work with Kim again on any future moves. Thanks again, Kim!

I contacted Sean Jarne when I received one of his real estate advertisements on my door step.

Sean always told me that "I will take care of it!" and HE DID! My house was sold with very little of my involvement, all thanks to Sean and Lauren. I would use Sean and refer him to anyone I know who could use his expertise. Sean will take care of everything! Jake Chou19120 BeachcrestHuntington Beach CA.

I highly recommend Julie Brim as a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent who genuinely cares about her clients.

Her advice, expertise, enthusiasm, resources and follow up ensured a smooth transaction in selling my condominium.

Thank you so much for everything you did to help me find a house!

  I am getting settled in and loving my new home.  It is in a beautiful area with so many people out running, biking and walking their pets!  I love it!  I really appreciate and recognize how hard you worked to help me get this house.  Thank you for listening to my needs, answering all my questions and being so kind!  It reduced my stress knowing that you were working hard behind the scenes to help me. I appreciate all the times you went above and beyond!  Your knowledge of this industry; knowing when time was of the essence to make an offer, your suggestion of writing a letter to the seller, and your secret sauce, made the difference for me getting this house or losing out on a great purchase!  The personal letter set me apart from 6 multiple offers, some of which were higher than mine. They still picked me, thanks to you, Lisa!  I can't thank you enough.  I love my house and it feels more and more like home every day!

Working with Dierdre was an awesome experience.

We had done research prior to contacting her an felt like we were well informed and ready to dive in. After beginning our journey we realized that there was still much to learn and thankfully we had Dierdre on our side because she really knew where to guide us. Because of her knowledge and honed skills she was able to help us find exactly what we were looking for, we are so happy with our new home, Thank you Dierdre!!!! We will definitely contact her for our future real estate needs.

James Malloy

Parnaz helped us through the relocation process and getting our nice home in less than few weeks.

She is an outstanding Realtor, friend and professional. She gets the job done. In each step of the process, she went above and beyond to guide and support us and more than anything else - she acted on our side like a trust-worthy friend. Her honesty, in-depth knowledge of Irvine's real estate market, hard working and constant communication throughout the process makes her a complete package to go with, and the best realtor one could ever imagine to have on her/his side. I highly recommend her. She was also very accessible any time of the day and provided us great advice.  If I were to buy a house, I would definitely work with her.

We moved here from another state and Lori was very helpful in finding a location that we would like.

I had changed my mind a few time but she was very patient and found the right place at the right time and at the right price. She was very diligent in negotiations for us. We are very grateful  to Lori for helping us when we really needed her knowledge. We highly recommend Lori.


I've had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer for a few years and find her extremely professional and personable.

In my interactions with her I found her to be organized and always strive to go over and beyond in order to ensure that I (as a client) am satisfied.

" Paul Took as MUCH TIME AS I NEEDED to explain everything that I needed to understand exactly what a short sale was, how I could get through a sale involving my Bank, and I could not have done it without his professional services, and personal touch!

" Ray Hayes

I went to Alex as a first-time home buyer.

He asked what I was looking for in a home and provided listings that catered to my checklist. Alex is very knowledgeable and patient. He is extremely approachable and answered all of my questions, even at off hours and weekends. He provided his honest input without being pushy. When it came time to buy, he made the process easy and explained what to expect each step of the way. Alex also comes with a good set of referrals. I was clueless on the people to work with whether it be inspector, contractor, insurance, etc. He always knew of someone for a job and there was not one person he referred that I was unhappy with. Even after closing on my townhome, he still makes himself available to answer any questions. Thank you, Alex!

To Whom It May Concern, I have lived in my home at 1553 Amberleaf, Costa Mesa, CA for ten years.

Sean Jarne has been marketing my neighborhood for as long as I have lived here. When I was going to sell my home. I interviewed four agents. Two of them were agents that I knew and were members of my golf country club. Sean was the only one who, #1, made an appointment to meet with me, #2, asked for my business. I am a retired real estate broker and have owned two offices and a mortgage origination company. After owning my own company and being in the business for over 30 years, I'm not easily impressed by agents. He was impressively professional and knowledgeable. He was very responsive through the entire transaction by following up on every detail insuring that all was correct and complete even after close of escrow. I would absolutely refer Sean Jarne, with complete confidence knowing that he will take care of anyone in the same professional manner. Thank you Sean for job well done!

Georgia Bjork

Matt and Sean were on top of the transaction from start to finish.

  I've bought and sold about 20 properties and Matt and Sean were the best agents I've ever dealt with.

I met Drew at an open house and immediately requested to have him help me on my search for my first home, and I'm glad I did.

Drew was there every step of the way, providing valuable guidance and insight. I am grateful to have found him and will definitely be back for all of my future home buying needs. Highly recommended!

Paul Monte stands out among real estate agents for 1st time home buyers.

We could not have asked more from him as a buyers agent. Paul is extremely professional, shows great attention to detail, is extremely conscientious, and has an awesome personality. We are still kicking ourselves and wondering how fortunate we were to find him! We were initially referred to him via First Team through their website, and had no previous connection otherwise. Hence, we were naturally apprehensive at the beginning. The only negative from our initial encounter was that he had a tendency to provide too much information for us to digest, but there in lies his attention to detail! However, he is always glad to slow down to clarify and explain terms that we are not familiar with, and never bothered by our ignorance. We found him to be extremely responsive: he almost always picks up his phone, and ALWAYS calls back promptly on the same day if he's unable to answer. After the first couple of weeks working with Paul, we truly realized what a gem he was as a person and an agent. His property walk throughs were always very detailed, and he is able to point out details about the property (both the good and red flags) that we would not have noticed out ourselves. He can almost pass of as an inspector with his diligence! If we had any concerns (or if he had any for that matter), he would promptly contact the seller's agent to obtain the required information. Our experience with another realtor was quite different to say the least. As first time buyers, we were in the process of discovering the type of property that would meet our needs (location, SF vs Condo, etc.). Paul was very patient throughout the process and took the time to learn our tastes and requirements. I can confidently say that we never felt any undue pressure from him on any property. Throughout the process of viewing dozens of properties, there was only one property that he strongly recommended (which we offered on but finally backed off), but he worked with us and heard our thoughts nonetheless. We finally found the property that we just closed on a week and a half ago. The process was very challenging due to our poor choice of the lending broker (not a fault of Paul in any way). If it wasn't for Paul diligently working with the sellers, escrow and lender, I'm quite sure we would have fallen out of escrow and lost the purchase. Paul also provided excellent advice on negotiating with the buyers which led to a very positive experience between us and the sellers. As another testament to his attention to detail, he spotted some termite issues in a discrete location in the house during the formal inspection that the inspector had missed. This not only saved us the repairs, but ensured that the house got tented prior to the sale. In summary, a home purchase can be very challenging for first time buyers who aren't familiar with real estate. I would give Paul Monte my greatest recommendation as a buyer's realtor to help in this process.

Andre Tok

I had the pleasure of working with Parnaz on my recent home purchase.

She truly went beyond my expectations! She provided an amazing level of personal assistance and was always there for me to answer any questions that I had. Being a first time home buyer this was invaluable to me. I felt well represented at all stages of the transaction and she really tried her best to negotiate on my behalf even under difficult circumstances. Her kindness and patience made the anxieties of buying a home more bearable. I can whole heatedly recommend her and will surely reach out to her again in my future real estate dealings.

Mehrdad HG

I'm 3 for 3 with Paul!

He helped me buy my first, second, and third property. He's extremely knowledgeable and closed the deals I made offers on! He's made the purchasing process easy and simple. In all cases, he's guided me to the best lenders that have been good to work with. I would not consider doing business with anyone else.

It was a true pleasure to work with Kimia.

Kimia possesses a professional style that radiates charisma, integrity and enthusiasm. She excels in effective and positive communication. Kimia exceeded my expectations by securing a solid offer over asking price, a record sale for our neighborhood, and sold our home in 5 days. Thank you again Kimia, I certainly look forward to working with you again.

CleanScreenz Co.

I met Sean at a Open House & he was very personable.

It was a Short Sale and took about 4 1/2 months to close and he kept me informed throughout the process. We didn't receive approval from both our Lenders until December 6th and the loan had to be closed by the end of the year because of the debt forgiveness act expiring. He recommended a lender who I felt very comfortable with and the house closed 12/ 28. I would use Sean again because he is a professional who does a great job and keeps you updated throughout the Process. He has a Great Team also which adds to the experience. Thank you very much, Brian Cotter  

Drew is an Awesome guy!

Has daily status updates on properties, escrow what ever you can think of.  He goes out of his way to make things simipler and easier for everyone. Definitely displays his experience to answer all of the questions you can think of! Of course gives great advice with doubts you have or concerns.Couldn’t be happier with my dream home!  Drew says I'm his first Gen Z client and I don't even know what that means?!? I'm 22 years and this is my first home and won't be my last. Thanks Drew!

We have known Sean for years and chose him to be our realtor on the sale of our home.

Sean worked hard to sell our home. He held many open houses and was very responsive to us and other realtors. He is positive and creative. We would recommend Sean to anyone! There were numerous setbacks with our sale process but Sean stuck with us to get to a closed sale. He also supported local non-profits which is a plus! Mike and Lara Fischer- 29761 Running Deer

Biljana is knowledgeable, professional, friendly and an excellent person to work with.

She went out of her way to show me everything that was possible. She has been so patient, focused and honest. As first time home owner she helped me with all the paper work and supported me in every step in the process. Thank you! I would highly recommend Biljana to anyone looking for an agent.

Sean did a Wonderful job ensuring we knew what was required of us to close on our house. He was very responsive to our questions - as first time home buyers, we needed constant updates and reassurances which he provided for us. We appreciate greatly that he negotiated on our behalf and we think he did a great job.We would recommend Sean because of his responsiveness as well as his persistence in communicating until things get done. There are obviously a lot of things that need to be done to complete a sale & Sean is a very motivated guy who will do everything possible to move things along. People I know are getting frustrated in this housing market and I will recommend Sean to them.Allan & Natalie Kellogg

He helped us even after the signing with utilities and such. I would recommend him to any of my friends or relatives.

Dongho Ha

Mike is a true professional with a unique desire to really want to help the client and not be self-serving.

Would recommend him without pause.

My experience with Sean in both selling my home & purchasing another has both exceeded my expectations.

It has been the best real estate experience I have ever had. Throughout  the transactions Sean has been attentive and helpful. His knowledge and expertise were invaluable. He is a professional. I have already recommended Sean to others and will continue to do so. As noted above, my experience with Sean was a positive one and I cannot think of anything that was negative or unhelpful. Camielle Callahan 23 Landfall Court - Newport Beach

Very reliable agent.

She knows your needs & she works so hard to give you 100% satisfaction. She has helped me to buy & sell my previous homes & I was 100% satisfied with her work. Highly recommended!

com  1/2/2013 Paul is an amazing realtor, and has a genuine care for his clients.  He demonstrated that to us constantly, making time to visit houses as early or as late as we could accommodate, 7 days a week.  The man is a machine, and will always answer his phone and is always hunting for new properties to visit alongside you. The wife and I were rather picky, and he still stuck with us for quite a while, until we felt we found the right house.  And once we did go into escrow, he was aggressive in following up with all parties to make sure everything went smoothly and there were no issues along the way. And after we closed, he's still made time to be there for questions, suggestions, and advice. You can literally not find a better realtor out there, and we wouldn't have our house if it wasn't for Paul.

Thank you Paul for your help renting my condo.



Cerise is the ultimate professional.

I had the good fortune of representing the buyers on a home she had listed for sale in Orange. Cerise is sharp, responsive, knowledgeable and thoughtful. On top of those attributes, her communication and people skills are top notch. She understands that buying and selling a home is a very personal decision and can involve both anxiety and excitement. Cerise worked well with everyone involved, exhibiting empathy and flexibility. Cerise knows the market; she has valuable experience; she thinks out of the box to provide creative solutions to hard problems; and she somehow makes everyone feel comfortable through the whole process. I can't recommend Cerise highly enough.

Michael Hogan

This was my first time that I have retained a rental agent to list my property and I was very pleased with the performance of Julia and her partner Dieter Hulfachor in showing the property, screening applicants and preparing the lease documents.

I previously owned a duplex in CDM and am familiar with the leasing process. I would give them a 5 star rating and highly recommend them to landlords of single family residences.

Russell Howell

    When my mother passed away my sister and I had to sell her home.

  Sean was well known in our neighborhood and after we spoke on the phone we decided to hire him to sell the home.  Working with Sean was enjoyable despite it being a very difficult situation for my family.  Sean was very easy to get a hold of and was prompt in getting responses back on the questions that I had.  I would use Sean Jarne again and I would refer him to anyone I know. Denise L. Genchi-Erikson1850 Parkglen CircleCosta Mesa, CA 92627

Silvia and Walter Wiebach came into our lives at just the perfect time.

In 2012 we needed to find a home in Orange County very quickly and the market was at its craziest. We had a very specific target price and time was of the essence and everything within our price range was being snatched away from investors who had ready cash to buy, something we didn’t have. This team found a short sale fixer that was in livable shape but needed some cosmetic work.  While short sales are usually an arduous and long process, our purchase was very successful and relatively short due to Silvia and Walters’ knowledge and professional network of contacts. We will definitely use them again for our real estate needs and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Evelyn A.

Very courteous and responsive.

Always ready to help with any questions.

Jay & Lirong Chao

Paul Monte has been though it all with us!

He helped my husband and I find the perfect house for our growing family. I was preggo with my 2nd baby and had surgery at the same time. He was very supportive He would work around our schedule and was able to show us a house we wanted to see in a quick timeframe. If and when we move to another house, you better believe that Paul will be helping us find another home. And it doesn't help that he was a great friend to us in the process! Love you Paul!!! I haven't forgotten you!!Kelly. Matt, Hunter and Zoe :) Via Yelp:

"Absolute perfection!

Completely professional, personable and goes beyond the extra mile to make sure everything is detailed with the upmost care. She was and is still with us every step of the way ... from going above and beyond to find a property that TRULY fit our family and our dreams to excellent support and communication to make that dream a reality. She is respectful and appreciated by ALL parties involved in our transaction. This is a rare thing to find. Kimia is AMAZING... if you are looking to buy OR sell.. look no further for the representation that will meet and exceed all your needs with professionalism, authenticity, grace and accountability. All attributes that are rare these days!"

Laura Greig

We looked at 40 homes and condos with Parnaz before selecting one for purchase.

She was very patient and fully prepared for showing each home and made the process easy and informative. I am a lawyer and was impressed by her knowledge of real estate law and the details of each document needed in the purchase process. We would use her services again without reservation.

Joh, v

Your care and thoughtfulness is much appreciated, on top of the great service you provided to us.

  With all the intricacies, delays and headaches associated with our particular property we just simply do not know how we would have gotten our sale completed without you.  If we ever have another property to buy or sell anywhere in your area we would certainly use you again. Ken & Laura Wilson, Tustin 

Michael works extremely hard to keep all parties happy.

He delivers what he promises. Micheal sold me a home and because he was professional I asked him to do the rental too. He performed well and delivered again. I would recommend him without a reservation.

Mark & Jean Rodrigues

We received Sean's advertisement for an open house in the complex we owned in, and went to it and met him there.

  I have sold many homes, but Sean did above and beyond what a realtor does.  He did everything he told us regarding the sale of our property, the right price, sale dates, and closing time.  He has an excellent work ethic, personality, and team around him.  Our house sold for the highest price in the complex in almost a decade.  We would use him again in a second! Ray and Lyndi Fauria21 SeascapeNewport Beach, CA 92663

The Best agent

Mr Nia

Mike and I met Sean Jarne at an open house years ago on Newport Island in Newport Beach.

  Sean was very kind and professional.  We left our phone number with him for any potential future homes for us.  He continued to keep in contact with my husband over the years over the phone, checking in with us to see if we were interested in various new homes that would come up for sale.  Persistance paid off for Sean.  Sean throughout the years was always friendly and informative with various listings.  A lot of our friends are realtors in this area but we chose Sean to be our buyers agent.  Sean is very knowledgeable, professional, respectful, and kind.  We truly appreciated his help throughout the process of purchasing our home.  He was always in touch with us by text and phone calls.  He made purchasing the home as "stress free" as possible.  When the home we just purchased came up for sale and we knew it was Sean's listing, we knew we had a great realtor that would look out for our best interests.  Thanks Sean!

Mike and Audrey Ivey

Dieter is one of the best agents I have run across in a long time.

Honest , straight forward, and will assist in every way to make the process smooth. As a real estate Broker myself it is a pleasure to work with a person who cares about their clients.

Vivian L Torelli

We have known Sean for over ten years.

He has helped us with other real estate needs before and has always exceeded our expectations. Sean always answers his phone, is quick to respond, and knows his business. We have been both the seller and the buyer with Sean, and will use him again on the next sale or purchase! He is so easy to work with!

Brad and Suzy

Rob is so effective and responsive that he is truly our "family real estate agent".

That is, he has sold properties not only for my wife and I, but also for my step-daughter and grandson. Talk about negotiation skills...Rob was able to sell our property in one day without having to drop the sale price by one penny. Rob is also very resourceful and was able to overcome several obstacles in a timely and efficient manner. I consider Rob to be not only a successful businessman but also a gentleman.

John M & Millie Kopec

Lori was able to find us a great house in the neighborhood we were looking in with the specifics we needed.

She found it within a month of us meeting her, and this was after working with another realtor for several months in the same area with no luck. She was also able to sell two of our other homes for the prices that we needed. Have recommended her to our friends and would be happy to use her again ourselves when the opportunity presents itself.

Candee Hoecker

6 years ago I was on the market for my first home.

 My brother referred me to Walter and Sylvia.   Working with them was great right from the start.  I told them what I was looking for, where I was looking and what my budget was.  Within 30 days, they found me numerous homes to look at and essentially my home.  They periodically check in with me to see how things are going which I appreciate.  Anyone looking to purchase a home should reach out to Walter and Sylvia.   They will make a daunting task such as purchasing a home an easier process.

Dieter is one of the most professional and knowledgeable real-estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with to lease or sale my house.

Thai Tran

Dieter helped us sell our San Diego rental property in September 2021.

Working with Dieter is a joy because the process is so smooth and painless. On the 1st weekend, we received 6 multiple offers and well above our asking price. This is not by luck but through Dieter's experience, foresight and guidance, we strategically priced the home to ensure multiple bidders. Also the professional pictures from Dieter's marketing team made the house desirable even before the buyers stepped into the home. Once we received and accepted the offer, Dieter's loan servicing team made the process painless and super easy. I would recommend Dieter and his entire team because selling seven figure homes and getting above asking price is no easy feat. It takes careful planning, strategy, marketing, pricing the asset correctly and working as a partnership to ensure the deal closes. Thank you so much Dieter! Not only are you a great Real Estate Agent but a Great Human Being for watching out for us.

Ty Tran

Lori, Thank you so much for being our realtor.

From the moment I spoke with you on the phone, you seemed like a go-get'er. And you are! You made our purchase as easy as possible. You're the best! The Flores family

Walter and Silvia were amazing to work with.

Coming from a disappointing circumstance with an almost-purchased home through a new development, we were fearful of "getting back into the game" so to speak. We met Silvia at one of their open houses and instantly took a liking to her. She was very pleasant and down-to-earth. Once we made the decision to start looking for an existing house, we knew she was the person to call. Her and Walter were EXTREMELY pleasant to work with and really hustled to find us the right place. We could not be happier with our new house and we really owe it to Walter and Silvia for their professionalism, dedication and most of all, honesty. They are the real deal!

Cyndi S.

We were recommended to Sean by a good friend, who helped him buy a similar home in the same neighborhood.

Sean always kept us updated on not only the status of the listing, but also on other listings coming on the market soon in the neighborhood. We were often able to be the first people to tour the properties right when they came on the market. He was very professional through out the process and very crucial in helping us close on our home. Without his knowledge of the general market and activity on the other properties in the neighborhood, we likely wouldn't have been able to purchase our home. We would easily use Sean again and recommend him. He makes the process very streamlined, especially after putting the home under contract. I asked for his assistance on everything from a good home inspector to a lender and everyone he recommended exceeding my expectations.     -Drake Ayers Newport Beach  

We love Kim!

She worked so hard for us and found us a beautiful place to live as well as being a friend! She is a dynamic personality and truly cares about finding her clients the right fit for them ! Thanks Kim, we miss SoCal!

Marjorie Laporte

Lori is simply the BEST !

! She did an exceptional job evaluating, renovating, and selling my rental house. Lori continually went "above and beyond" to make this SALE happen for me.


It was a true pleasure to work with Alex!

He was always very professional and on time. We felt very comfortable with him handling our purchase because he demonstrated in different ways that he has the knowledge and strategies to get the best deal done. We found the perfect home for our current needs, but will definitely be calling Alex when we need to look again. We will tell all our friends and family about what a great experience it was to deal with Alex Yu and FirstTeam. THAN YOU!

Jason lalunio

I would have given her 10 stars if it were available.

Very determined Realtor, that will respond to your questions and concerns. I live in the west coast which made that even more important. Julia is very committed and professional. She keeps you in the loop every step of the way. I would use Julia again if the opportunity should present itself. Thank you Julia for helping us find our dream home!

Wassef Kamal

"Hands down, Paul Monte is the only agent I will ever use and I would refer him to anyone looking to buy a home.

It has been a long 7 month journey for us, searching for a home to fit our needs. Paul was with us every step of the way. He is very thorough in explaining things so that there are no surprises lurking around the corner. There was never a question that we had that went unanswered (and we had alot) and he was ALWAYS available when we needed him, despite the fact that we were not his only clients. I can't say enough good things about Paul and we are so thankful and happy that he was able to help us fulfill our dreams of being homeowners and helping us find the PERFECT house for our family! Thank you Paul--you ROCK! Doug & Amanda "

Amanda Vierling

Julie, I want to thank you in helping me in buying my home.

I have worked with many Realtors through out the years and you have been the best ever. Your dedication and diligence to please is amazing. I admire you calmness and your professionalism when you confront difficult task.  I will recommend your services to anyone, you are the best.  Ana R. Laguna Woods

Zahir Family Trust

Kim is awesome!

My fiance and I had been looking to lease our perfect Huntington Beach home together and she made it all possible. There is no doubt that when we are ready to buy in a couple of years, Kim will be the one we choose for all our real estate needs.

Sally and Kris Freiling

"Lisa Hoover is the best!

She was our realtor for our first home that we recently purchased . I was nervous starting out this journey as I had always heard how stressful the process was. However, Lisa made this whole experience a breeze! She is very professional, personable, knowledgeable, thorough, fun, and responds quickly to any/all questions. She was an absolute delight to work with. She holds a special place in my heart in that she made our home ownership dream come to reality."

Jessica (Buyer)

Alex is simply the best.

Ever since our college years, he has been a hard working, socially responsible individual. He is easy to speak with, works esoteric hours (making him accessible for home seekers that work), and habitually delivered on his assignments/promises throughout the process.

Todd Brooks

"Mary did a superb job of marketing two properties for the Weiner family Trusts.

She was successful at selling our duplex on West Bay Ave. in Newport Beach and our family home on West Oceanfront in Newport Beach. We would highly recommend Mary to you for your real estate requirements Robert Weiner"

Robert Weiner

Kim was an amazing agent work with!

She went above and beyond to help us find a home. She was in constant communication with us and got us exactly what we were looking for! Besides being super friendly, she was very professional and is a very hard worker. We couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with. I will definitely be using Kim in the future and will always refer my friends and family to her. Angelina

Angelina Arturo

My wife and I recently moved to Huntington Beach.

We found Kim by luck through an online request. It was the best online request we could have made. Kim worked non-stop to find homes to our liking and to assist us in the offer and buying process. She worked tirelessly to make the buying and mortgage process simple for us even though our demands were difficult. Even after we closed, Kim continued working with us on a couple of conditions in the house that were not properly disclosed. We highly recommend Kim and her team! She has been nothing short of amazing.

Mark and Jennifer Williams

Very professional and knowledgeable

Monika Lazar

We worked with Kimia on selling and she was fantastic to work with.

.. always one step ahead and efficient. She cares about what she does and who she represents and it shows... Would definitely work with Kimia again... awesome experience!

Andy B.

Lindzee did a great job negotiating the price down to the right level that allowed us to buy the property.

She followed up all the way through the process until the handover was completed

Jens Sohn

I have known Severine since 2013 when she began volunteering for The Joyful Child Foundation.

She is multi-talented, diligent, caring, and intelligent. Severine has experienced the challenges of not only moving her family from one house to another, but relocating to new countries and states. As a result, she has developed a unique level of understanding and expertise. I recommend Severine without any hesitation or reservation because she is wise and genuinely caring about helping her clients focus on what matters to find their ideal home. Along the way, you're very likely to pick up some wonderful design and cooking tips. Welcome home!

Erin Runnion

Paul helped me with 2 transactions, the purchase of a home and leasing a home.

He has been there for me every step of the way from negotiation down to the details of the packing. I've bought a lot of houses in my life time, this is the first time I felt white glove service was delivered.

Nicole Queeney

We contacted Kimia to sell our home.

She was extremely professional and personable. She took excellent care of us and listened to our requests, concerns and interests. We will be recommending her to everyone we know. She was a blessing for us!

Katrin Vakili

I have had the opportunity to work with Mike Farina from June to December of 2020.

I moved from Buffalo, NY to Riverside CA. Mike has worked like an outstanding professional from the every first day. He provided all the information required to purchase a house in Riverside county. When we arrived in California in November he took us around and made us feel comfortable as we searched for houses. He is exceptional in his manners and respected every individual we met while house hunting. He helped us throughout the entire process and made us understand the detailed paperwork for buying the house. Mike is the kind of individual who without any hesitation will take the task on hand and complete his project on time. He is overall a wonderful person and and has all the skills to work as realtor. I would recommend him to anyone and give him a 5 star rating.

Really appreciated Dieter's great support for helping us find this nice house and continuous consideration in helping us settle into our new environment.

Kyu Chang Sim

Walter and Silvia sold our home in Irvine in 2013.

 The neighborhood was still recovering from the recession but they made the deal happen, and even made several personal sacrifices for us. They were extremely professional but also friendly and really cared that we were satisfied.

Lawrence M.

We've known Lori Robnett for a number of years and have always been impressed with her dedication to her profession.

She works long hours and is determined to find the best property for her client's budget. In 2014 we decided to enter the competitive real estate market in Orange County. Lori worked  tirelessly searching for a home that suited our needs. She worked late into the night answering questions and shuttling offers to and fro. Lori found us the perfect home in a great neighborhood. She was attentive to our needs and budget and negotiated a great deal for us. Lori can be trusted to look out for your best interests in your real estate purchase or sale.

Kimberly and Michael Wallace

Dieter is very knowledgeable and experienced.

We appreciated his guidance and recommendations thru the whole process. With the insecurity of the market due to COVID 19, Dieter was able to weed thru it all and find us a respectable renter. Great positive attitude!

Laura Ferber

When it came time to sell our Newport Beach home Dieter Hulfachor did an excellent job of representing our property with extreme professionalism and integrity.

His knowledge, thoroughness and kind nature made the whole process pleasurable. 5 star ++++++!!! Extremely Pleased Client, Dorie Swanson

Dorie Swanson

When my husband and I started thinking about selling our loft, we knew where to start - Lori.

She assured us that we could get top dollar for our place, and sure enough, she was right! We were able to get asking, and it was all due to Lori's dedication and marketing efforts. At the same time, we  were looking to buy a house in the Costa Mesa area. Lori always had her ear to the ground on any potential listings, as our budget constraints made our search a bit more challenging. After lots of looking, and then receiving asking on our loft, we finally decided on a listing Lori already had in College Park! In no way did she ever push us to go with her listing, but rather she let us come to that decision wholly on our own. With her representing both sides, she was completely non-biased and maintained professionalism throughout. Again, without her help and hard work, we wouldn't have ended up with our perfect family home!

Mark and Kaylin Meyers

Paul went way above the call of duty in helping us find a home for our failing father.

We had plenty of obstacles to navigate in a real small window of time and he took care of everything. Not sure what we would've done without him.

Dain Kirkpatrick

Lisa is a great realtor!

We have moved multiple times and worked with many realtors in the past. We really appreciate the ease of working with her because of her strong communication skills. Living out of state and trying to sell a home is difficult. Lisa was our right hand person. She was able to meet movers and acquire different bids on projects that needed estimates. She was quick to answer texts and was available to be on the property site when requested. We would highly recommend Lisa for realtor services.

Jill With

Lori is very professional and helpful.

She did a fantastic job!!! As a first-time house buyer, her knowledge and kindness made us comfortable throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend Lori for either selling or buying a house! She is the best agent one could ever ask for!


He is very good broker and he knows his job.

i am glad that he got me the house and I will recommend him to all my friends.

Behnam Farahnik

My wife and I contacted Kimia to find us land in Temecula to build our dream home.

She was very responsive and knowledgeable in the area and found us the most beautiful land and view within our budget. After the completion of the sale she also helped us find a great local architect and  contractor. Kimia is the most amazing agent we have experienced and we will highly recommend her to our friends and family.

Melika T.

Biljana was exceptional, she went far beyond her role as a realtor, and made sure to anticipate all aspects of transaction and pre-empt any isssues.

I am extremly happy with her. It took only 13 days to sell my place: over list price and for cash offer, quick close, no contingencies! I would recommend Biljana to anybody who wants their RE experience to be as smooth as possible.

Vera Sreda

We loved working with Kim.

She was responsive, knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with. She genuinely celebrated with us when we got the house. She helped us prepare for the roller coaster of submitting a contract and I could tell she has worked on many deals and knows the real estate business.

Lyndsay McDonald

Kimia’s skills far surpass the standard expectations for a luxury home specialist.

When my family couldn’t find the home we were looking for, she strategically targeted homes that fit our criteria and managed to cultivate a prime selection of pocket listings for us to choose from without any pressures of purchasing a home through a traditional listing. Kimia’s tactful negotiation and innate understanding, both the buyer’s and seller’s needs, further displays both her experience and commitment to her industry. Kimia will relentlessly search and find the home you are looking for and make sure you are the most satisfied customer in every way. I’ve recommended her services to a few friends and family and they all have shared with me that, “Kimia is our realtor for life.” Thank you Kimia!

I purchased my first home this summer (2020) and Emily helped me every step of the way.

I am so very glad I was referred to her! Emily was very professional, knowledgeable, understanding and available. She explained the process and all its steps to me with clarity. I was never wondering about what step we were on or what I needed to do. She really made the process simple. She was very responsive when I had a question or needed something re explained. She was instrumental in working with the seller and my lender to get all the details right. I can’t imagine going through that process without her expertise! I highly recommend Emily and her services. Thanks again Emily!

Alex E.

Sean knocked on our door about 2 years before we were going to be selling our house.

  Our experience, from the beginning, was first class, attentive, organized, and prepared.  During the initial interview Sean said he averaged about 8-9% higher in purchase price and after interviewing other agents, we agree as our final closed price was 8.75% over what other agents suggest we list our home for.  We would absolutely use Sean again and refer him to anyone we know.  Sean is the most organized and forward thinking person around!  He is great at communication and anticipating the next step, he did it all the way through the process of selling our home.  For a personal reference please call us, Sean has our number! Richard and Sherri Crowe200 IntrepidNewport Beach

I met Sean at an open house in Newport Beach.

It was a pleasure working with Sean. He was very honest and knowledgeable about the Newport Crest community. He was not pushy and always tried to be fair. Additionally, he was very responsive and accommodating to my request regarding the house, inspections and closing process.  Sean is very professional but also down to earth. He delivers a great quality of service and makes the closing process very easy. He always makes himself available and it showes he truly cares about his clients. I would work with Sean in the future and will refer him to my friends and family.-Joe Depillo20 Swift, Newport Beach

Sean sold several homes in the area my mother lived; when she passed away we called him to sell her home.

Real estate transactions aren’t straightforward and filled with complications. Sean was responsive, assuring and in front each step of the way. He answered every call or returned my call immediately. Almost as important, Sean proactively called to advise if he wasn’t going to be available for any period of time. Sean is professional and quick to act. He guided me each step of the way. Sean answered every question I had honestly even when the answer was not what I wanted to hear. Sean delivered and got it done. Contact me if you would like to hear more about my experience. 19120 Beachcrest, Huntington Beach

We met Sean when he was canvassing our area.

Working with him has been a Real Pleasure - He is Prompt & Forthright. Sean is a very self motivated person. Very Diligent , Honest & a Real Professional.  He sold my house very quickly thru an Open House and Many Showings. I am very pleased with his Tenacity!Randy CollettValley Road in Costa Mesa

Sean and Audrey were instrumental in our house-hunting/selling experience.

After having my home listed for 6 months with a different realtor with no action I decided to hire Team Jarne to get the job done, and boy did they ever!  Sean and Audrey helped us stage our home to make it look more attractive to buyers and it had an effect.  Not only did my house sell in two weeks but they carefully guided my fiance and I through what I considered to be a very overwhelming process, they were always available to answer any questions we had! Sean and Audrey helped us narrow down our options until we found the home that was perfect for combining our two families. We really can’t thank her enough for all the guidance and support she has provided us since day one. "

Michelle Lowe

I worked with Sean to buy my home, and I decided to use him to sell it, working with Sean was great.

He went above and beyond to ensure my property sold and he even helped me remove items from the home after I had moved. I would definitely use Sean again and refer him to people who want to sell their home for a realistic price. He's great with purchases as well. A true negotiator! Brittany Ambrosiano 23 Kamalii, Newport Beach

Brittany Ambrosiano

Nick is a very positive, considerate and professional agent.

He was extremely patient with me and very knowledgeable about the market and current conditions. Mine was not an easy escrow and there were a lot of outside factors that had to be taken into consideration. He managed to work them all seamlessly and tirelessly, sometimes well into the night. His dedication to my situation was commendable and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to sell or buy in the area.

Anna M Abbott-Marciniak

It was great!

Jacob and Katherine Holke

Very responsive to questions, always follows through, and works completely for the best interest of his client.

Would not hesitate to use Rob for all future real estate transactions.

Dear MaryAnn , I am very pleased with Kim Schumacher’s performance,  she is very dedicated and prompt.

 I believe Kim Schumacher is a valuable asset for your team.   Regards, Franco.....

Franco Sorentini

We highly recommend Severine Hebras as a real estate agent to sell your home.

She is very knowledgeable of our area and presented a great plan to sell our home. We now have a pending sale of our home in one week! From beginning to end she kept in communication with us and also advised us on staging our home for photos and an open house. Her advice was right on target. One of the best parts of the process was that we were very comfortable working with Severine. Not only was our house sold quickly, we received a higher offer than our asking price! Thanks to Severine Hebras we will be on our way to retire out of state. In conclusion, if you want your house sold Severine Hebras is the agent that will get the job done right. 09/22/2019 - Brian Bennett Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Tustin, CA

Parnaz is the best.

She helped us sell our house, buy a new one and rent it too. She is very knowledgable and informative, an agent that one would really like, and benefit from working with. She is honest, available at all times, and ready to help. She cares about not only the big factors of the real estate business, but also those small details. I would highly recommend her. She even follows up with you after you purchase a property and tries to help you in any way possible.


She is by far the best of the best I have ever worked with.

She is going to be my entire family's realtor forever. Such a professional realtor, we need more and more of her! Kimia thank you so much for your great and speedy work. She is the best ever I have worked with. I am extremely satisfied with Kimia.

We were for four years in the market to buy a home in OC.

As the time goes byes the price of real estates gets up by %40 , While we were so disappointed 😥 suddenly the God sent us an angel 😇 in IKEA store which we met her out of the blue accidentally . We get her biz card as we called her consequently , She arranged a foamily meeting and recorded all family member needs and wishes professionally in a tables and numbers. After a short time she locked 3 homes for us which all sellers was excited to deal with us. we were in limbo to select which one when in the past; no seller was interested in us. Now all doors was opened and we we were happy to have more choices to select the best in order to get value for money and location. Finally we offered to the best as we had the best agent whom the God sent us . Thanks God for Pary = the Parnaz the angle of realtors and an honest person in the earth from the sky and Gallexy.

    We met Sean around our neighborhood several years before we listed our home for sale.

  He kept in touch with us during that time keeping us appraised of prices in our area.  We decided to work with Sean because of his knowledge and expertise in our area and about our home.  Sean helped us prepare for our first (and Last) open house and helped us show our house very effectively.     We listed in Late November, and sold at our first open house for full price, 12% over the most recent sales in the area.  We feel this is clear recommendation in itself.  We would recommend Sean to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Denis and Samantha Gilmore1048 Spinnaker Run, Costa Mesa

Drew is a 5-star realtor without a doubt - laying out various scenarios/options ahead of signing/listing, sharing his knowledge and experiences but allowing his client to choose which avenue to pursue, then very smartly putting in place a strategy, implementing that plan seamlessly and successfully, all the while 'protecting' his client as well as creating a "calm environment" when very much needed!

I can't say enough about Drew, truly - extremely knowledgeable, organized, energetic but indeed calm, and possessing fabulous people skills! I would - and will - recommend him to everyone I know! He made this first-time experience of selling our house actually exciting and enjoyable! I can't thank you enough, Drew!!!

Sean was recommended to me by my Son Mike, they had done some business in the past.

  Sean was always on top of things and always responded to issues as they occured and in a timely and appropriate manner.  I would refer Sean for anyone who needs real estate services, he actually answers his phone!1807 Port AshleyNewport Beach, CA 92660

I was referred to Sean by his mother, an agent I have worked with in the past.

Sean was very professional and pleasant to work with. He showed encouragement and willingness to help in any way. Sean helps his clients prepare their home and then gets them the top price. He is very knowledgeable about the market. We would recommend him as first choice to anyone!!

Dear Lori, This note is to express to you our appreciation for your professional approach in the sale of our home.

Your exposure thru the web and other brokers made for a quick and orderly sale. We would not hesitate to refer you to our friends on the sale of their home. Regards, Bill and Joyce Kelly Hummingbird, Costa Mesa

Lori is a complete professional, knows her stuff and gets the job done!

I would use her again and again. She brought me a great tenant for my property, prepared all the paperwork and saw it through start to finish. The transaction was super smooth with no hiccups and a lot easier than I expected it to be! Her years of experience are evident and make her my "go to" person when it comes to real estate transactions!

We are thankful for having Suzann as our agent.

She helped us find the perfect home and guided us through the whole process patiently; for a first time home buyer the process can be daunting, but with her expertise and excellent responsiveness everything was so smooth that we had nothing but an excellent experience. I would definitely work again with her in the future and I highly recommend her as your agent.

Emily manage our transaction with such ease.

She was always one step ahead of the process and answered all of our questions before they arose. She will always be our Realtor for us and our family!  Alex and Brandy

“I saw Sean’s signs throughout the Newport Crest neighborhood during his open house one weekend.

When I met Sean he was very thorough, friendly, honest, and efficient. He was very knowledgeable regarding the subject property and the area. He was always on time to showings, meetings, and signings. He kept the parties organized, on schedule, and dealt promptly with all issues and concerns. The entire process from offer to close was remarkably easy; a good balance of friendly manner and professionalism. I have closed many real estate transactions, and this was certainly one of the easiest transactions. I would refer others to Sean- in fact I have already done so! He is honest, knowledgeable, and delivers on his commitments.”

Dear College Park Home Owners, My wife and I would like to let our neighbors know that Lori Robnett did a fantastic job of selling our home.

We took her advice and replaced some features such as the roof, garage door and side fence. Then she was very aggressive in using all forms of advertising to list our home, from the internet, MLS listing service, newspapers and a sign out in our front yard. We had the final bid on our house in just two days from when the sign was posted out front. Lori handled all the details and thus we were able to concentrate on our move to our new home. We had a very short time frame to move and Lori helped us meet our short deadline. We highly recommend Lori Robnett as the professional to pick if you want to sell or buy a dream home as quickly as possible in a professional manner. Sincerely, Bill and Becky Bequette College Park

I would like to thank Terrie Khosh for being a extremely helpfull from selling my property in less that a month, at price over the market value.

We had the most incredible experience with Kim!

She really cared about getting us the perfect home and we couldn’t be happier with it. She was professional, helpful, kind, quick and thorough with every process. I would trust her with all of my future real estate needs.

Paige Tapp

Lori was a pleasure to work with.

She carefully walked us through every step of the process, from touring properties in which we were interested, to placing offers, and then through the entire escrow process until we closed on our new home. We highly recommend her!

We listed our home with Sean because of his knowledge of the market along with his enthusiasm and his commitment to do what was necessary to market our home successfully.

His constant communication was vital in keeping us informed as to the situations and the turn of events so we could assess and make necessary decisions accurately - Excellent communication! He is a true professional, experienced, knowledgeable & with a "Get the job done" attitude.Steve & Linda Porter

Justin is the best real estate agent with whom we have ever worked.

He is knowledgeable, professional, calm and on top of everything! We have had experience with him selling our home and now with the purchase of a new home. He was great on both transactions. We have highly recommended Justin to family, friends and even strangers who have asked if we know a good real estate agent. Justin is not just good, he is great!!

Richard & Robin Schwecke

We would not recommend anyone other than Julia Yi to be your agent.

She is diligent, hard-working, and will help you to the end to find the best home that you are looking for. I don't say this for many people, but Julia is very trustworthy and transparent throughout the entire process. Sadly, nowadays, it is hard to find an agent you can trust; however, you can trust Julia. I would definitely recommend her, and you will not be disappointed. Thank you again, Julia.

I had the pleasure of working with Scott, as the listing agent, when he sold my mother’s home last year.

Scott accurately assessed the value of the home, recommended a price and it sold within 3 days of being listed. Scott was prompt for every appointment and he was in constant communication with us every step of the way. He did a great job and we enjoyed working with him. Scott definitely has our appreciation and we are glad we had him on our team.

Severine worked with us a couple of times as we had originally listed our property right before Covid when Covid hit even though we had two offers almost full price ask she understood our concerns and was completely understanding when we pulled our house from the market so we could stay in place during the lockdown.

Eight months later when Covid lock down lessened we put our house back on the market. With Severine’s marketing strategies we were able to have showings safely by appointments only on one Saturday and had multiple offers. We sold our house one week later for above asking. And with her brilliant negotiations we were able to get two month rent back for free as we figure out our next move during these challenging times. We would highly recommend Severine and would have without a doubt 100% confidence and using her again for a purchase for the sale of another home in the future. 12/22/2020 - Marion Browning-Valdez Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Tustin, CA.

Dear First Team, I am writing this letter in recognition of the services rendered by Lori Robnett.

 Lori was extremely persistent in her search to find us the perfect home which I might add was difficult due to specific financial, geographic and visual guidelines She gave us a realistic view as to what we could afford as well as making comparisons to surrounding towns. We are a young unmarried couple and with Lori's help buying our first home was much easier that we imagined. Thanks to her efforts we are the proud owners of a beautiful home in Fountain Valley and are no longer renting!!!!! Sincerely, Jeff Denson and Christa Jones

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give because Julie is a "10" all the way!

This was my second experience with her -- first as a renter and now as a buyer -- and things just keep getter better. She is very knowledgeable, totally dependable, and always into efficient and effective service. It's a pleasure to know her as both a realtor and a friend. She follows through on everything, day or night, weekday or weekend, on vacation or not! And her enthusiasm is very contagious -- makes it fun just to be with her, no matter what the task that lies ahead. I have recommended and will continue to recommend her without any hesitation or reservation whatsoever, and I will do whatever I can to bring business her way because she deserves it and clearly enjoys her work. Two of my friends have worked with her and feel the same way I do. Congratulations to First Team for adding Julie to your staff! She is a true winner!

Parnaz is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and hard-working.

She is also a very kind, patient, compassionate, and understanding person and is superb and hand-holding throughout the process of selling a house, which can be extremely trying. The Second buyer that saw the property put in an offer, I am extremely grateful to Parnaz for all of her hard work and patient, cheerful assistance and I heartily and unhesitatingly recommend her services to anyone who is selling or contemplating selling their home.


Mike was a pleasure to work with.

He is very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable in his field. He always answered our questions and was very quick to respond. This helped us make informed decisions in the purchase of our home. We will definitely recommend Mike Farina and First Team to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. Mike, Thank you for all your hard work and patience. We truly appreciate all you’ve done for us and helping us close in less than 30 days. Thank you again for helping us find our dream home in California! The Vargas Family

My wife and I needed to sell our place and find a replacement home.

 In the process of getting ready to sell our home, there was a number of improvements we had to make to get the highest price possible.  One huge benefit of working with Silvia and Walter was they had so many great contacts.  Everyone from a professional painter to a simple 'handyman'.  I would also like to state they were always careful NOT to suggest improvements for the sake of 'improving'; they sat down and discussed this with us from the beginning.  Additionally, they helped negotiate the best price with these contractors (etc.) and helped schedule when the work to be done.  They were there all the way through the process, even dropping by our place during the work.  They wanted to make sure it was all being done to our satisfaction.

Dear Lori,I just wanted to thank you for all your help with the sale of our home.

After my husband's sudden passing my world came crashing down. I am so grateful to you for how you were able to help me through the process of selling our home. Even though my sister-in-law is a Realtor I chose you because of your knowledge of College Park and for the many years of experience in our neighborhood. Having an agent on my side through such a difficult time means more then I can express. Your professionalism as my agent is beyond words. Not only did you help me get my home ready to sell, but you were also there helping me clear it out. You are a very sincere, helpful, and hard-working agent.I will be forever grateful for all your kindness and help.


Pari was great!

It was a pleasure working with her. When I had questions, she was responsive, and when I asked for her advice she provided it to me, with examples of pros and cons. Thank you!

Dieter was immensely trustworthy, direct, and detail-oriented throughout the home-buying process, acting as my eyes-and-ears with multiple third-parties to finalize the transaction in just over 30 days (from start to finish).

He always seems to make you his first priority, and as a first-time home buyer, I couldn't be happier that I tapped Dieter to be my agent.

Josh Shu

I have searched for a long time to find a real estate agent that not only works as hard as I do, but treats my money and investments like it was his.

Gregg Perrah is that person. He works very hard to promote your property and pulls out all the stops when it comes to marketing your investment. He sold my most recent property in a matter of a day! His early promotion, visits to the neighbors, and all around knowledge of the property created an immediate sale. Gregg will leave no stone unturned and will act in your best interest. BC

Bob Cuevas

Emily is wonderful to work with and is always so helpful and supportive at what can be a very stressful period of time.

I recommend her to everyone I know looking to buy!


Walter and Silvia are the best agents you can ask for.

 They listed our house and had it sold in 6 days!!! We started to get nervous after it was sold because we haven't found a place to live yet but we were in escrow on our dream house within a week after the sale.  This is the second time we have used Walter and Silvia and it definitly won't be the last.  Look no where else for your dream team.  They are as good as it gets.

Bryce W.

Pari has helped me complete various property transactions to success in the past 15 years, and this transaction was no exception.

She is a seasoned professional and always follows up all issues even after the end of transaction. Should she come to you I recommend her most highly.
