For the sale of 22 Santa Rida, IR


Thank you for all your help and assistance with the sale process. You were absolutely professional throughout the sale. Maryann was totally outstanding through the escrow process. She was very helpful, extremely courteous and explained the various steps of the escrow process very well.

This was my first experience selling my home and your team made the process seamless for me. I will look up to your assistance always in the future and will never hesitate referring a friend or a relative for your services.

Absolute pleasure......and thank you and Maryann again.

Hi Fred and Ester,

My wife and I wanted to thank you both for doing such a fabulous job selling our home on 7 Trapani. You and your team were great. We also appreciated the fact that you were always there for us whenever we called you.

Selling a home in this economy can be very stressful but working with you made it an easy and pleasant experience and we were so happy that we received the highest price ever in our tract.

I appreciated the fact that you were so flexible on your fees and you did the same superior upscale marketing that you are known for.

I always do my homework carefully in choosing the right professionals that I work with and I certainly feel that I picked the best team to sell my home.

I had high expectations and you exceeded them. Thank you again you are true professionals.

     All the best,

Dear Fred,

It was extremely rewarding to have you and your team help us with the sale of our home. You were all very courteous, professional and efficient.  While we allowed for a 90 day escrow, it turned out to be a little over 30 days before it closed.  To us that was exceptional service, and we wish you and your team the very best for future transactions.

Best regards,

John Cook

We would like to extend to you our sincerest thanks for assisting us with the recent sale of our property 15 Bahia, Irvine.  You helped us to navigate the real estate market, and thanks to you we were able to sale our home quickly at the price we feel was fair to both us and the buyers.

Now that we are settled into our new home, we can honestly look back and say that we made a great choice when we chose you as our listing agent. Your expert advise in regards to how to best show the property, how to market it, and how to determine the price point in this recovering market was much appreciated!  To anyone seeking to sell their home in Irvine, I would advise them to choose you.

Thank you,

John and Catherine Bailey

Dear Fred and Esther,

We wanted to thank both of you for the tremendous effort you both put forth in selling our home recently.  Despite a very poor economy with limited buyers in the market and depressed home prices all around, as a result of your expertise and your internet pictorial "virtual tour" of our house you were able to get a number of buyers to make offers, with one of them closing at one of the highest prices seen in our area in years, not to mention the long term lease back you got for us while we look for our next home.

As principles in a real estate firm and a licensed Real Estate Broker who's worked in the real estate industry for years, we knew it was vitally important to have a broker represent us who specialized in our area, had a finger on the pulse of the local market, and a proven tract record of success.  We were thrilled that we picked you two to sell our house, and are really happy with the results.

Thanks again very much!

Very truly yours,

Michael M. McClune and Elizabeth A. McClune

Hi Fred,

My wife Akiyo and I would like to personally thank you for the outstanding job you did for securing a qualified buyer for our home in Westpark.

The professionalism you exhibit in handling your job responsibilities is very evident.  From the initial contact in listing with you, to the actual sale and closing of the property, you were there offering your assistance in a very positive manner.

There are many real estate agents willing to sale your home, but only a select few go the extra mile to ensure meeting their clients expectations.  Fred Stepanian fits this category. 

Fred thank you again for all the good job selling our home and getting us the best price possible.

Dear Fred,

Please excuse our delay in thanking you for the outstanding job you and your team did in marketing and selling our home at 69 Agostino in Westpark.  It was your consistent effort that got the job done. 

Particularly in a difficult market, we knew it would take time, patience and special efforts to sell our property.  But from beginning to end you made the process as easy as possible.  Throughout, we knew that we had a top flight professional working in our best interest to achieve the best results.  And, that's just what happened.  Thanks to those efforts, you got us the highest sale price on our Las Palmas model for all of 2011.

Fred, It was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you.  Your professionalism and high ethics made a major life move (to Laguna Woods) easier for us. 

Again, thanks to your team.  Needless to say, we would highly recommend you to anyone either selling or buying a home in the area.  And, anyone who has a question about your services can call us.

Best wishes for a happy and successful new year.

"We would like to thank you and your team including Maryann for the great job you did in selling our condo in the Westpark area of Irvine. You both worked tirelessly for us and did a fantastic and top professional job in providing assistance on the sale of our condo. In addition to advertising and prospecting, which you did an excellent job, you went above and beyond by having an open house only two days after we signed our agreement. This was concluded with three offers the next couple of days, for which one of it was accepted and culminated in closing the deal.

Thank you again! You are the best in Westpark."
