CREATE YOUR BUYING STRATEGY

Buying a home is unlike any other type of purchase. After all, you don’t typically drive up to a home for sale, ask how much it costs, and pull out your debit card to buy it on the spot. The home buying process begins with shopping for a mortgage and ends with closing on the home. There is obviously a bunch of steps in between, which is why it is important to have a skilled agent who can easily navigate you through the process. Buying a home is a pretty complicated process, so there is no benefit of going at it alone. Our team of skilled agents has the experience, market knowledge, and negotiation skills to help you achieve your goal of homeownership. Contact us to connect with an agent and set up a complimentary buyer’s consultation to create a winning strategy.

What Our Clients Are Saying

NANETTE TOOK THE TIME TO SIT DOWN WITH US & WALK US THROUGH EVERY STEP OF THE PROCESS

We were first-time homebuyers in a competitive situation. Nanette took the time to sit down with us and walk us through every step of the process to make sure we understood not only what was immediately happening but also the "big picture" of the home buying process. She was always very responsive to our questions and available to us by phone and also in person for our extensive inspections, even on very short notice. We trusted her guidance and intuition on how to negotiate the purchase (which was not a simple process in this particular situation!) and are pleased to say we were able to buy the first house we made an offer on, AND we were able to close in a very fast 25-day escrow. We had almost no issues arise in escrow, but the few things that did pop up, Nanette was there to jump in, use her contacts and expertise and help fix it efficiently. Would recommend her to any buyer or seller. Laura F.

SUSAN WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE & RESPONSIVE TO OUR QUESTIONS

Susan was our agent when we bought our home in the Pacific Palisades this summer. She was very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions. Her negotiating skills are very good. She had previously helped our daughter buy a co-op in Santa Monica and they were also very pleased with her help. Finally, Susan found us a tenant to rent our home in the Pacific Palisades for the next year until we are ready to move there from back East. It was challenging to find the "perfect" tenant and after a few false alarms, she finally did secure a family that we are very pleased with. So to summarize, Susan was a very good real estate agent in terms of helping us buy a house, helping our daughter buy an apartment and getting our house leased. She is enthusiastic and we recommend her! Phil & lynn M.

ALEXANDER MAKES EVERYTHING CLEAR FROM BEGINNING TO END

It was great working with Alexander. He is very easy to work with and makes everything clear from beginning to end. Very professional. It was a pleasure working with him! Humberto L.

SUSAN COLETTI MADE LEMONS INTO LEMONADE

Susan Coletti made lemons into lemonade! We had a very difficult buying situation between delays, multiple extensions, managing difficult personalities, inspections, and overall stress and Susan always handled each situation with professionalism, spunk and a no BS attitude. She single handily saved our deal more then I can remember, and always put our minds at ease. I will always work with Susan in the future and I will highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in SoCal. Susan made our dreams a reality, and we will forever be truly grateful. Maranda N.

SUSAN WAS HELPFUL & INFORMATIVE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Susan Coletti was instrumental in the purchase of our dream retirement home. She was helpful and informative every step of the way. The result was a smooth and happy closing. We're grateful for Susan's expertise and professionalism. Judy C.

NANETTE & HER TEAM ENSURED THAT TIMELINES WERE MET & CLOSING WOULD BE ON TIME

It's been great working with Nanette and her team on my real estate acquisitions. Professional, dynamic and energetic, Nanette and her team ensured that timelines were met and closing would be on time. She followed through and I'm so happy in my new home. Antonio N.

ROSALINA'S WORK ETHIC & LEVEL OF INTEGRITY ARE SECOND TO NONE

I have been searching for the right property in metropolitan Los Angeles for quite some time. Prior to working with Rosalina as my buyer's agent, I spent countless hours researching and touring homes that in the end, just didn't meet my needs. Frustrated that I may never find the right home, a friend suggested that I contact Rosalina whose knowledge and expertise in the LA real estate market have been extraordinarily beneficial to me. When I first contacted her, she spent a lot of time listening to exactly what type of home and neighborhood I was interested in. She asked lots of questions and after a short period of time, drew up a targeted list of properties that she thought may fit my needs. She has accompanied me to many properties and her knowledge and expertise of the local housing market is outstanding. In addition, she is an absolute pleasure to work with and has worked tirelessly to help me find the house of my dreams. Her work ethic and level of integrity are second to none. She has made a very stressful process for me, much more manageable. She has my highest level of recommendation. Sylvia N.

WE FEEL LIKE THE LUCKIEST PEOPLE TO HAVE SUSAN AS OUR REALTOR

We feel like the luckiest people to have Susan as our realtor. A few years ago, she helped us find and close on one of the best townhouses on the west side (it was our first time buying anything and it was an extremely smooth process.)A few months ago, she was not expecting to hear from us, but we called up and told her we saw this house on our block we were totally in love with. We loved the neighborhood, the home's architecture, but not the price tag. We wanted to put an offer in way below asking and also with the contingency of needing to sell our townhouse before being able to complete the purchase. We figured we would get a quick no from the seller which would make this the shortest story ever. Susan worked some CRAZY magic for us because not only did the seller come down well below asking(nearly to our original low ball offer,) they also agreed to all our repair requests, and Susan was able to sell our townhouse well above what we were asking for. She was able to really maximize getting us the most money for our townhouse and saving the most money on the new house. The whole process was again extremely smooth and whiplash fast despite our contingencies and variables. I told Susan I feel like I grew 8 arms with balancing my current life, selling our townhouse and buying a new home, but I think Susan struts around with a baker's dozen. She is a rockstar!

ANNELISE HELPED US FIND AND GET THE PLACE WE WERE LOOKING FOR AND NEGOTIATE FOR A FAIR DEAL

Annelise was amazing. Knowledgable and nice but never a pushover, she helped us find and get the place we were looking for and negotiate for a fair deal on a couple of things we thought the former owners needed to fix. I never felt like she had anything but our best home in mind. She wasn't pushy, always helpful and listening to what we looked for. I could not recommend her enough. Even after closing, she continues to be helpful with great recommendations on everything we could need as new owners. Ross C.

ANNELISE WAS ALWAYS VERY QUICK TO RESPOND AND MADE US FEEL 100% ASSURED AT ALL TIMES

Annelise was an excellent Realtor. She was always very quick to respond and made us feel 100% assured at all times. Her customer service far exceeded any Realtor we had used previously to finding her. Furthermore, she was very knowledgeable during the entire process and was in our corner at every turn. Annelise was the perfect Realtor for us and I highly recommend her. She helped us purchase our first home and was there to guide us at every step of the way. Five Stars across the board! Gardner D.

ANNELISE WAS PERSISTENT & RESOURCEFUL IN REALIZING OUR VISION

Annelise is EXCEPTIONAL. A move-in ready house on the west side within a reasonable budget? Challenging, but Annelise nailed it. She was persistent and resourceful in realizing our vision and knew the market cold. Annelise quickly, and instinctively, deduced what was most important to us in a home, and never wasted our time on houses that weren’t a fit. Throughout our lengthy search (nearly 1 year) Annelise remained patient while still vigilant behind the scenes…. intuitively knowing exactly when to ramp up, or when we needed a mental break. She was never pushy but always attentive. Annelise is extremely knowledgeable about the west side, getting us in to see homes before they were even listed, and once we finally got into escrow she worked tirelessly, even during vacation, to meet all deadlines and close. Personally, Annelise is refreshingly authentic and an absolute pleasure to be around. She remained honest and straightforward throughout the entire process. You can rest assured that she is looking out for your best interests. You won’t find a better realtor than Annelise! Sophie J.

ANNELISE WAS VERY PATIENT WITH US AND SHOWED US MANY HOMES THAT FIT WITHIN OUR BUDGET

Annelise was amazing! She helped my sisters and I find the right home for our mother to downsize into. She was very patient with us and showed us many homes that fit within our budget. She walked us through the inspections and closing procedures as we were novice buyers. I would highly recommend Annelise for her expertise in all matters of real estate. She is knowledgeable, professional and has a great sense of humor. Molly N.

JENI WAS VERY COMMUNICATIVE & SERVED AS THE PERFECT LIAISON

Jeni was simply amazing. She was very communicative and served as the perfect liaison between owner and renter. She was aa joy to work with, especially when trying to rent a home can be so difficult. I couldn’t recommend more! Cole J.

JENI WAS PATIENT & ALWAYS AVAILABLE WHEN WE NEEDED HER TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS

We hired Jeni Bober from the Noel team to help us find a rental in Brentwood for our family. We are doing a renovation on our home and needed something comparable, well priced, and we needed it quickly. Jeni was professional, patient, and always available when we needed her to answer any questions, discuss options in the market, and make recommendations based on what she thought was best for us. She always made us feel important like we were the only client she had even though we're sure that was not the case! We ended up winning a multi-offer situation and renting a house in Brentwood that Jeni found for us which suits our needs. We could not have asked for a better agent then Jeni. Rob & Gaby G.

JENI WAS REALLY GENEROUS WITH HER TIME AND HELPED GUIDE ME THROUGH THE HOME BUYING PROCESS

Jeni was really generous with her time and helped guide me through the home buying process. As a first-time homebuyer- the whole process can be very daunting and especially relocating from out of state. She was very considerate of my erratic work/travel schedule a super patient. She set up times for us to see properties very efficiently and answered our many questions. I had a lot of virtual home tours and phone calls. Although we decide to take a little break because of personal and work reasons, we will be utilizing Jeni again in the near future to buy our home when we relocate. Less Alicia P.
