Testimonials

“Henry and Maureen did what others could not have done. They presented our property in a special way and sold it right away for top dollar. They helped us prep the 
property for sale, guided us through a mini renovation and estate sale, and staged our architectural midcentury. Henry’s negotiating skills made the deal happen, and he always kept our best interests the priority. They had a plan and a vision, and we benefitted from their sage advice.” ~ Waynn + Holly, Sellers, Pasadena
“I am an architect, and I knew I wanted a fixer, but wasn’t sure what area I wanted to live in. Henry and Maureen helped me evaluate my priorities and showed me properties in different neighborhoods. Their experience in renovation, estimating and architecture helped me decide which property to go with. They navigated the complicated negotiations and even interrupted their vacation to make a timely offer and seal the deal.” ~ Karl, Buyer, West Los Angeles
“As a first-time homebuyer, they helped me in every aspect of the process, ensuring it was the right property for me, evaluating inspection reports, overseeing repairs, and even consulted on moving in. They are a wealth of information and resources and was always eager to help.” ~ Matt, Buyer, Pasadena
“When they were done prepping, staging, photographing, and preparing the marketing materials, I hardly recognized my own house on the website. We had already moved to Seattle, and Henry and Maureen took care of everything–painting, new flooring, new kitchen cabinetry, and staging. Our place sold quickly and at a price that created a new benchmark.” ~ Kirti and Manu, Sellers, Pasadena
“I was ready to sell, but didn’t know where to begin. I was overwhelmed! Henry and Maureen strategized a game plan, helped get my home cleaned up, de-cluttered, and staged. The house got on the market at peak season and sold right away. They were always there for me. I could not have done it without them.” ~ Barbara, Seller, Pasadena
“Henry and Maureen are architecture and design people. Their passion and knowledge is evident in their restorations. I bought one of their William Krisel homes, and I was taken by the attention to detail and care. It was the only house I looked at, and I immediately knew that I wanted to be its caretaker.” ~ David, Buyer, Palm Springs
