Judy is a class act. Incredibly knowledgeable and is the queen of negotiating. Judy got me $200k over asking price and advised me patiently along the journey to ensure I made the best decisions throughout the whole process. Consummate professional. I honestly can’t recommend Judy more highly. She’s a spitfire who gets results and has strong ethics..
Orlando is the one Realtor® you need to call when you looking for the best. We had already been at open houses in the past, pre-covid, and thought we might hire him should we ever sell our home. Then, when we decided to sell during the peak of the pandemic, we reviewed our notes and contemplated among many firms and agents. My wife and I both decided that Orlando was without a doubt the one to trust with our home. We put a lot of money, time, and sweat into making our home the perfect version of what we believed home to be and Orlando spent considerable time learning about what went into that. Further, he consistently answered his phone immediately, even when he was on vacation. He and his team employed advanced marketing techniques and there wasn't a time that we weren't in close contact with Orlando. He paid attention to every detail and represented our home in an exceptional way. As a result, we sold way, way faster than we had anticipated and had a lot of interest in our home despite the inability to show in a traditional way since the virus was in peak status. He adapted and was great to work with from start to close.
Orlando has gone above and beyond to make the selling process smooth for my family. He worked with my parents, who are older, and he patiently explained everything to them. He knows the Westchester area and market well, and the house sold in record time. With any issues that arose, he worked with the buyers, escrow, inspectors, etc. to keep things moving along without a hitch. He was sensitive to my parents' needs and even offered to step in and help them with whatever they needed. Honestly, I don't think we could have done this with anybody else. If I ever need a Realtor® in the future, he'll be my first call. I highly recommend Orlando and can't thank him enough for all of his help.
We met Orlando serendipitously at an open house and were drawn to his kind and easygoing demeanor. We had a firm price limit and a clear idea of what we were looking for in a house (e.g., open concept; 3BR; backyard). We just weren't sure where we wanted to live on the West Side. Orlando was very knowledgeable and flexible, showing us homes in a number of places in the first month (during COVID, no less) and squeezing in spontaneous visits to listed and unlisted homes due to connections with Realtors® in the area. He was never pushy, impatient, or dismissive, and was always present and intentional about debriefing each house to better understand what we were looking for, offering his thoughts when helpful. When we settled on a location, we were a little anxious about the school districts until Orlando connected us with his colleague (with children) who was very knowledgeable about the school system. Moving into negotiations, we let Orlando lead the way as we are not good negotiators. Following his intuition, we were able to secure a house for $5000 over the asking price, which was an accomplishment in the seller's market with similar homes in the neighborhood being sold way above the asking price (For context, we had put an offer down on a house prior to this one and a bidding war increased the price by $100K!). After securing an offer, Orlando was very gracious (and efficient) in answering any questions we had and putting us in contact with different people, ranging from a mortgage broker to get another loan estimate to a neighborhood painter who could redo a few walls. But beyond the professional and excellent service offered by Orlando, we are glad we followed our gut to contact him after that open house event. He's kind, sincere, thoughtful, and intentional. To illustrate the kind of person he is, when we closed on our house and had family come over for the final walkthrough, he brought pastries from his parents' (award-winning) bakery to celebrate, just one of the many ways we were grateful to meet and work with Orlando. Thanks, Orlando!

Judy was awesome from start to finish. She was proactive in finding homes that fit our needs from the outset, and on nearly 24-hour notice was able to pull together 8 visits for us in our desired area, one of which became the house we picked. We ended up having to move quickly to get the house we wanted, and Judy worked swiftly to make it happen and got us into escrow within 24 hours. She was super responsive and on top of things throughout all of the escrow, and was even able to get us moved in earlier than planned as our timeline changed. Highly recommend Judy to anyone looking for a home!
I don't normally rate anyone with 5 stars, but Orlando deserves this rating. If the rating scale were higher, I would give him that and I'll tell you why. Orlando was a delight from the start. Our goal was to sell our home for the best price possible, with the least amount of hassle. Orlando sold our house in two days! The escrow process was seamless (major kudos, too, to the escrow company). Orlando kept us apprised throughout the entire process and was highly responsive to our calls and questions. We are beyond happy with the outcome of our sale. We highly recommend Orlando!
I can’t thank Judy enough for finding me my dream house. I connected with her when looking at one house (which was out of my price range) and within a day she found me the perfect home. We put in an offer and closed within a day. The negotiations went perfectly smoothly. She is super sweet and super-efficient and an incredible advocate for her clients. She’s both fierce and humble. Can’t say enough good things about her! You’re lucky if you get to work with her.
Orlando went beyond and above the call of duty to get us into a home in the ultra-hot LA market. We would not have been able to buy a home for the value we got without him. We were literally looking for a home for 7 or 9 months and as soon as we started working with Orlando, we were in negotiations for the home we closed on in 1 week! Orlando is a very hard-working agent and a very nice guy! I would certainly work with him again and highly recommend his work!
This was my first home buying experience. Judy made a big effort to make this transaction successful. We found a place right away, and Judy and her team were able to get the closing done in under 30 days. She introduced me to her trusted loan officers and was able to set me up with reliable, and equally kind people. I am happy in my new home and enjoying the nice gift basket she left. Thanks, Judy, looking forward to making new memories in my new place.
We found Judy through Zillow and could not have been happier! We had previously worked with several brokers, and we found Judy to be one of the most thorough, patient, and well-equipped agents to help us close on a new home which we have just recently closed on! Highly recommend working with Judy and her team she's exactly the right person you'll want by your side as you pursue the home of your dreams!
I felt really comfortable with Orlando. I was a bit of a tough client and didn't know exactly what I wanted in the beginning. He guided me through the process and helped me understand what my options were. I was finally able to narrow down my search to a few great neighborhoods. Orlando was very helpful and patient. I will definitely recommend it to others.
Highly recommend Orlando and the team. The process of home selection can be exhaustive especially when looking for the “right home” but Orlando’s persistence and amazing demeanor enhances the experience. His attentiveness and ability to connect with us allowed us to feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I will undoubtedly refer others.
Orlando is very knowledgeable about the market on the west side and was able to find me some properties in an area of Playa del Rey I thought would be out of my price range. Throughout the transaction, he and his team were very responsive and made the complicated and obscure process navigable. I'm very happy I chose him as my agent.
Orlando was incredibly responsive and helped us get our condo in record time. He helped us through as first-time homeowners and we're very happy with our new place and neighborhood. We'd recommend Orlando as he's kind, resourceful, and always responded quickly to our questions and concerns!

Orlando was our seller agent in Westchester. He was great. He has a deep knowledge of the neighborhood and current market sentiments. He is patient, professional, and made great suggestions for us to reach our goal while adjusting to the market conditions. Highly recommend.
Judy is wonderful to work with. She is incredibly responsive and understanding. This was a difficult decision for us but she helped us along the way. Her knowledge of our neighborhood and how to get the most from our home was impressive. I will definitely use her again.
I found him online! He found a dozen properties in our price range or desired neighborhood. We found our dream house and had to meet a 30-day escrow. Orlando was completely attentive, smart at negotiating, and helped us meet all deadlines. I would highly recommend him!
Judy was awesome. She was friendly, knowledgeable, she got everything done and made the whole process so easy and seamless and she sold the house in record time, with multiple offers, and at a price, we are ecstatic about. She is simply the best.
She advocated for me and got the job done efficiently and professionally. She is very helpful in many ways. I would recommend her to family and friends looking to buy or sell their homes. Thank you for everything, Judy! You’re amazing!
Orlando is an incredible and professional agent, we thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He sold our home (during COVID) in a flawless transaction that was incredibly efficient. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Orlando is professional. Knowledgeable and a good negotiator. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. He made my selling experience very smooth. I really appreciate his skills.
