Justin and Laurie are positivity from head to toe and always with a smile. Anyone who thinks real estate professionals all do the same job means they've not met these two. Hard working, diligent, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. They sold my pride and joy residence of 31 years at the HIGHEST price that has EVER been sold on my street. That's not achieved by just any real estate professional. They are truly the best!

When I first met Laurie, it was a chance meeting at an open house.  She asked about my real estate goals and objectives which at first was strictly for investment purposes.  Over the course of three years, the goals changed to a retirement home with a view.  Through that pivot, Laurie was diligently patient to work with my husband and I to find us our dream retirement home in Huntington Harbor.  In fact, she even stuck with us when we put an offer on the first find that we ended up getting cold feet about and withdrawing at the last minute. While that would have frustrated most realtors and caused them to lose our number, Laurie stuck with us until the right property came along.  We have since renovated that home and have been comfortably living in it as we inch our way to retirement someday soon.  Laurie is like no other realtor that I’ve met in 35 years of investing in So Cal, with trusted reliability, caring and thoughtful expertise and most importantly, transparent integrity through and through.

Laurie helped my wife and I during the sale of our home for a relocation.  She was extremely helpful and understood our concerns during our relocation process.  She showed patience and was great at answering all of our questions.  She truly made the process feel seamless and was able to calm our nerves during what was a stressful time relocating our family.   We would feel very comfortable referring Laurie to our friends and family and would love to work with her again should the opportunity arise.

Justin was the best at arranging the sale of my Home in Huntington Beach. His knowledge of what the current market is and staging had my home sold after its first Open House. During the entire Sale process and Escrow He and his Team kept us up to date and answered all of our questions and concerns immediately. We were so pleased with his expertise we insisted he assist us with the purchase of our Home in Cambria. His negotiation skills allowed us to purchase our new home below their asking price and his Team went over and beyond to find and lock in the lowest interest rate possible. It was a pleasure working with Justin, he really knows how to make and close the deals with the least amount of stress on us. Thank you Justin!

Justin Holmes is an incredible professional. His guidance, immediate responsiveness and negotiating skills are outstanding.

His services included property preparation for sale. His property improvement recommendations were very cost effective and maximized our sale profit. Our property sold for far more than we ever dreamed possible, solely because of the guidance and tireless work of Justin Holmes. Then Justin found us a property for purchase that met all our needs and expectations. He never stopped negotiating during the purchase process, even to the very end, saving us thousands of dollars. Moreover his team and network is some of the best in the industry. Particularly Justin is very smart, hard working, patient, congenial, unflappable, responsive and a joy to work with. Consequently, we highly recommend Justin Holmes as we think he is most likely the best in the industry. We give him 10 stars out of five stars if that were possible.

My husband and I worked with Laurie to sell our first home and the purchase of our new home.   Laurie not only got us multiple offers which resulted in more than we had hoped on the sale of our home, but she was also able to help us secure our new home beating out several offers with her great negotiation skills.  Laurie was great to work with and very responsive.  Sometimes late into the evening if we had questions, we’d call her and she’d answer and walk us through any questions or concerns we had.  She always had a great attitude and was willing to take the extra steps to prepare our home to go on the market.  We are truly grateful for all of her guidance, knowledge and professionalism.
