I met Dr. Lenore Coleman of “Healing Our Village” after a failed attempt to sell her home in Altadena. Besides dealing with an agent who didn’t market the home properly, she was also working with a shady group of investors/contractors who had misrepresented their services, and done a substantial amount of work to the property without permits, and not to code. It took some doing to get through the mess that other people had created, but we got through it. Once the property got to market, we received 8 offers within 14 days at well above list price. It was a real pleasure to finally close this one, and I am honored to listen to the generous words she had to say.
When I helped Mia to sell her home, she was concerned at first whether or not there would be a market for it based on it needing a little work. Well, we had over 300 people show up to the open house, stopped accepting offers when we received 30, and sold the property for all cash at well over list price. I’d say it worked out!
Ryan and his fiancee Polly were first time home buyers in a red hot seller’s market, where most buyers are used to losing bidding wars for 12-18 months before successfully getting an offer accepted. They were the ideal clients in that they prepared for the buying process exactly as I requested, and as a result, we opened escrow on a house they loved in about 3 weeks.
I had an amazing experience working with Steve. I am visually impaired, and Steve really went above and beyond in my accommodations with documents, checking out properties – by hand for me, palming through properties, feeling properties with my cane and my feet. We went through several places, and I was humbled by his patience, his kindness, and his general professionalism. I highly recommend Steve for being your real estate agent. I am forever indebted and grateful to him, and very happy about everything that went on in the real estate transaction.
“Most people dread the idea of having to sell a house. You put it on the market, it sits there, you don’t know what’s going to happen, when someone finally puts in an offer they want to negotiate…it’s just a big headache! And for me personally, I had this additional headache in that it was for my dad. I was trying to move him across country to be with me. So not only was I having to sell his house, but I wasn’t even there to help with it. And my mom had passed away a few years back and the house was not in the shape it should have been in. So I was a little nervous. But I worked with Steve and he was a SUPERSTAR with this. We had an offer for the house before it even went on the market, and it was an incredibly fair offer for the condition it was in. It was unbelievable… With Steve’s connections and his expertise, it was done, and it was done fast, and I could not be happier. So thank you so much Steve, and if anyone is thinking if Steve is the right one for you, I would highly, highly recommend him. Thanks so much!
My experience with Steve and him helping us to sell our house was…Amazing! We were a little bit scared of how to deal with the situation because our house needed work. But he made us believe in his approach, and it turned out to be the best thing ever. We went into a bidding war, which is the best outcome for a seller, and we got more than what we thought our house was worth. So it was a great situation. We were so confident that he was going to close the deal for us, that we even went on vacation before we closed. So if you guys need a realtor, definitely… Steve is your man!
I worked with Steve and it was great. He basically sold my house for much more than I originally thought I was going to sell it for. He did a wonderful job. He was able to sell my home in a short amount of time, stage it, go to market for it, and do a lot of things that a lot of other realtors could not do! It was amazing. I literally was over the moon, and now I’m in another home that I love. And I just want to say that if it wasn’t for Steve I don’t know what I would have done. He really did an outstanding job. I highly recommend him.
Hello, my name is Maria Acuña. I’m here to talk a little bit about Steve Aranda and how I met him.
I met Steve while he was remodeling a house on Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena, and we got to talking regarding his remodel he was doing and what his background was.
We met and we talked a couple of times and I asked him to come over and tell me what he thought of my property, which was maybe 3 or 4 houses down the street.
While talking to Steve, two things I liked about Steve. One of them was he was very sincere about either selling my house or finding alternative ways of doing what I wanted to accomplish, which was to retire, buy my house outright, and not have any worries regarding mortgage any more.
He suggested really strong possibilities. I researched them, and it didn’t work for me, so I called him back so I called him back about selling the house itself.
During the selling the house it was so quick it was unbelievable, it was great. I was very comfortable with who he brought as a seller, I was comfortable the way he processed the sale of the house. I would recommend him highly.
One of the things that is his strongest suit is he’s very very honest. He will tell you whether it’s worth selling, whether it’s worth buying, how you could approach what you want to accomplish in the end of everything.
So I really recommend him, I hope you work with him, and he does call back also.
Steve Aranda worked with us for over a year to ensure we got the correct house that was right for our family. We even had to pull out of a couple of offers because of seller issues, but Steve and his team stayed the course until we found the best home at the price we were looking for. We were so impressed we also asked him to list our prior home thereafter. We can’t say enough about the professionalism, attention to detail and extensive real estate and financial experience that Steve possesses.
