6/6/2011 I want to thank you for selling my Eagle Glen home in Corona.

I truly believe you are the very best real estate agent in Riverside County. First Team Reality is fortunate to have you as one of their agents. I knew you were the prefect agent the minute we met. You are honest and straight forward. You helped me choose the perfect price for my home. You never tried to talk me into anything. You gave me your professional opinion and guided me in the right direction. I was thrilled when the comments from the real estate caravan showing all said this house is priced exactly where it should be for a sale. You sure do know your job as the house sold in less than one week and without a single open house. I was able to get several great offers. I also was glad you were my advocate as you watched out for me to be sure the offers were from qualified buyers and that I was never taken advantage of by anyone. As a widow selling a home on my own it was comforting to have you to guide me through every step. You are a great person and a great agent. Anyone selling a home would be lucky to have you on their team. Fondly, Margie Haas

She is a very dedicated realtor and shows homes representative of the clients request.

She answered call and returns calls timely. I will definitely use her services again and will refer her to others.

Very thankful for your help with my mother's condo sale.

It was pleasant and efficient without one hassle or worry.

Sylvester G & Carolyn J Gelski

Gloria did a wonderful job!



Kathleen was amazing to work with!

As first-time home buyers, we were so nervous about the whole process. It was so nice to have a patient Realtor that was willing to quickly answer all of our questions whenever they came up. She gave us great advice and was very knowledgeable about the market. We originally wanted an older home, but then changed our minds and went for a new construction home. Years ago, I thought that real estate agents were unnecessary when buying new construction, but I am so glad that we had Kathleen on our side as we navigated the construction and purchase of our home. When we had issues with the appraisal, Kathleen worked tirelessly with the builder and with the bank in order to iron out the situation for us. When we were confused about what the builder was telling us, Kathleen would contact them directly and be our advocate. We truly could not have done this without her help. Kathleen is smart, kind, patient, and a wonderful Realtor and we were so blessed to have had her help during this 7 month home buying process. We will be highly recommending her to any of our friends and family that are home buying in the future!

Michael & Jenifer Nalbanian

Ken & Joanna Mark

03/06/2013 Sold a home in 2013 in Lake Elsinore, CA 92532.

Steve is extremely responsive to any and all questions you have, and you can trust that he always has your best interest in mind. We truly felt that Steve prioritized our needs and desires first and that always came above what was best for him. Our home was sold with in 2 months and at asking. We  could not be happier!  


We engaged Randi through social media.

We had a few friends in common and she simply asked who was ready. We only went into this expecting to get a feel for where we were vs where we needed to be in order to buy a home. Randi and her team pre-qualified us and the decision was suddenly in front of us to pursue it now or wait. We decided we had done enough waiting and this was our time. We are motivated, organized, and mildly intense personalities. But we love to laugh and have fun. We work hard and clearly expressed our expectations of our realtor to Randi. She delivered. She was always available to show homes, honest in her feedback about them, and on time and on pace with our style of searching. Once we were in escrow she became our advocate and our therapist. She never presumed to be in charge and respected our position as the people on the paper. So all final decisions were left to us with good information on her part. She shared in our frustrations and our victories. She is definitely invested in this profession and we would highly recommend Randi and her team, Davis & Associates, to help with anybody’s process. She was professional, respectful, and genuine. Randi is the real deal and will get things done. Thanks for everything Randi!!

Paul and Erin DuBose

Knorr and Olson Team were very impressive, They knew exactly what I wanted in a house, budget, and neighbor hood.

They were consistent in following all other leads on homes that meet my criteria. I did purchase from them and have recommended them to others.


Candice is the BEST!

She is a fantastic negotiator with years of experience. She went way beyond the norm to sell our home. She was always available by phone and responded to all of our questions and concerns immediately. Our experience was nothing less than phenomenal!

Anthony & Kristen Barra

Angela Brown worked tirelessly on getting our house.

Amy Hernandez

I just closed escrow by the end of last month and this was my first purchase.

Since it was my first time buying I had many questions in regards to the process. Angela was very patient and very knowledgeable, she always took the time to explain and made sure there were no doubts about all the parts of the process. Very trustworthy and transparent. She is what any first time buyer wants because you can trust that everything that needs to be done will be taken care of to your best interest. Thank you, Angela!

Emilia Solval

Randi was extraordinarily helpful in selling our home.

She put up with scores of telephone calls from my anxious sister, and even carted away items we didn't want any more to the animal shelter thrift store for us in her van on a number of occasions. She went far beyond what might reasonably have been expected of her. And she's still helping me by giving me referrals to realtor in places I'm thinking of relocating to, as well as sending me emails about properties I might be interested in. I recommend her services very highly.

Dwain Jones

Gloria she makes dreams come true.

Patricio Cuadrado

Elda is fabulous.

She cares about her clients' best interest and is responsive to their needs. We bought a house, she represented us, and we closed on time in 30 days . You will love her positive attitude and responsiveness.

Terry Prichard

Very professional in all he does and always finishes what he starts ,the results are always positive thanks to him we got the home we always wanted.

Carlos Zamora and Alma Hernenadez

We are writing to express our extreme pleasure with real estate agent Kris Roundy, who represented us in our recent home rental agreement .

Kris, took the baton from my former agent (we loved), who had a personal matter to attend, and guided us through the entire process, from searching for a 3-bed rental to changing to a 6 bed rental. He worked with us when it came to going out to look at the property. He guided us through making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Kris with a smooth, stress-free renting a home- experience. My family had such a pleasurable experience. Kris is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. If there were six rating stars we would give them to him. To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Kris and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone.

Tammy, G

Kathleen was very kind and helpful.

When we asked a question that she felt she couldn't help us with, she let us know that she wasn't the best person to ask and then guided us to the best person to ask. In that respect, she made sure that every question we had was answered. Since we were first time home-buyers, we had a lot of questions! Kathleen was very easy to get ahold of; texts, email, phone calls were all answered very quickly. I appreciated that Kathleen would give us certain bits of information, but then allow us to make our own decisions and support us 100%. That might sound odd, but being overwhelmed with the whole process, it was wonderful to have someone who was "in our corner". Once we saw maybe 10 houses or so and gave her feedback on our likes and dislikes, Kathleen began showing us homes that she felt would match my husband and I that maybe we hadn't noticed or had decided not to view. We ended up falling in love with one of the homes that Kathleen had chosen to show us, and I am proud to say that that is our first home! Our biggest setback with our home search is my husband's work schedule. He works long hours and often isn't available until the evenings. Kathleen was more than willing to show us homes even when the light was waning a bit. She even showed us the same home a couple of times to ensure that I could see it in daylight and my husband could see it after work. Kathleen worked with us in every way; knowledge, support, communication, and flexibility.

Luis Lugo jr and Amy M Vaclavik

Very professional and knowledgeable.

Knew the area like the back of her hand. Very accommodating especially since we were out of the area movers. Would use her again and again.

Richard and Theresa Costaflis

Being a first time buyer is intimidating and I really did not know what to expect.

They were both able to explain to me step by step the process of buying a home. They answered all questions I had even after we had closed escrow. I felt well represented and take care of. I would highly recommend  them.


We loved working with Kathleen!

Her experience was evident as she helped us navigate the complicated home--buying process in a very fast-paced market. She always responded to us quickly and encouraged us to continue looking until we found the perfect home. We did!

Lori & David Palmerton

Maria had shown great integrity, experience and professionalism.

She went above and beyond the call of duty. At any time I had questions or or potential homes to discuss or view Maria was available on short notice and very informative. She is definitely a key asset to the success of the business. I will definately use and refer maria again.

Brian and Jelsomina Elsasser

First Team Agent Shirley Scofield listed my home in Corona and managed the multiple offers as they came in to acceptance of one and back-up offers of others.

  She contacted and kept in constant communication with my Lender, counseled me on and submitted the various pieces of documentation needed by the Lender, submitted the offer and kept myself and the Buyers Agent informed regularly and often, and when a major complication arose---the passing away of my Buyer--she barely skipped a beat, and we put the house back on the market. Again we received multiple offers, again submitting the best one to the Lender, and maintaining a constant line of communication with all parties, through Escrow  with a demanding and difficult Buyer, on to the closing and transfer of keys. Shirley is MY Agent for Life and I have recommended her to many other potential property Sellers I know, as well as family members in the market  for a home purchase.  Linda Schofiled

My husband and I highly recommend Maria Knorr, she has been so much help in helping us sale our current home and as well as helping us make logical decision in purchasing a new one.

It has been a pleasure working with her and her team.

Yvonne Guzman

03/29/2017Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Menifee, CA.

Steve was great selling our home. He brought in a professional photographer to show our home's true beauty, he was always available, and advertised our home extensively. Thank you for being so professional. Would gladly use again in the future.


Liz was amazing to work with.

She went out of her way to help my wife and I find our perfect starter home. Her advice throughout the entire process was invaluable. We will definitely be contacting her when our growing family needs somewhere with a little more room.

Patrick Hughes

Cindy is one of those people you instantly feel good about.

She is a hard working,highly ethical professional that get's the job done. I highly recommend Cindy Veddar for all your Real Estate needs.

Jim Bernardi

Aura is the best realtor I've ever dealt with!

She pays attention to exactly what you're looking for, she never pushed any house on us, she's genuinely a great person. I've always heard horror stories about realtors, so Aura was a DREAM to work with! She took us everyday, for about 2 weeks, to view different houses in different cities through the inland empire. She was knowledgable in all areas! There's not enough room for all the great things about her, she's completely professional, and I'm ecstatic to move into my new home! From start to finish it was probably 2-3 weeks, we went from apartment to dream home! Her negotiation skills are the best! She got us all the extras and more to the contract of our house! After telling everyone we know who is currently house hunting about her, they're always shocked about how lucky and easy our experience was! I would, and do, recommend her to everyone! Thank you SO much Aura!

I have enjoyed my real estate home search with Aura!

. She provided me with listings and guided me through the process of focusing on areas which would suit my families needs. She always answered the phone when I had questions about properties and scheduled appointments around my schedule. I highly recommend Aura to anyone navigating the purchase of a home!


Elda was very helpful.

She explained the process of purchasing a home step by step. She kept me posted of everything that was going on while the home was in escrow. She explained some of the terms that I was not familiar with. I’m very satisfied with her service and I’ll will definitely recommend her to my friends & family.

Martha Serna

The process was really fast and easy .

In less than a month we got the house, she was there to answer all the questions and concerns that we have it was a pleasure having her as my realtor an on the future if I need to buy or sell I wouldn’t hesitate to contact her again

Yasmin Mercado

Kathleen was an incredible realtor.

As a first time home buyer with many questions, she was patient and helpful along the way. Kathleen was nearly always available to show me a home when I was and was very willing to work with my schedule. Questions and inquiries were responded to promptly and in general my interaction with her was very pleasant. Kathleen went above and beyond to help me communicate with the loan officers about questions I had and to ensure I knew about what to expect. She made the home buying experience less stressful and overall I enjoyed working with her.

Andie Spitzer

We obtained Shirley Scofield's services to assist us in buying a home.

  We stumbled upon her via one of her property listings. In this very difficult market we had used several agents that provided only marginal services.  To us, Shirley was a godsend.  We gave her a list of what we were looking for in our new home along with price range. In the real estate world of short sales and repossessions as luck would have it, the home we wanted was a short sale.  At one point the house almost went into repossession as the listing agent wasn't minding the property notifications.  Shirley did everything necessary to keep the home in short sale status and us as the buyers of the property. To Shirley's credit by late June 2010 we  were handed the keys to our new home and moving in. Shirley has a stellar work ethic. She is personable, punctual, professional, friendly, and determined to assist her clients until they are in their new home. We highly recommend Shirley Scofield. Henry and Patricia Choate

Angela is the most dedicated, detail oriented and thorough agent that I have ever worked with.

Her passion for her business and genuine understanding of my needs and wishes for a successful sale and purchase were second to none! I would HIGHLY recommend her! Her friendly nature and superior skills won't  disappoint...!

Clearing out my home and listing it after living there for 50 years was a tremendous task to undertake.

Trudy was there to guide me and help in every aspect. The size and circumstances of the property also presented a challenge which Trudy was willing to take on. I am definitely pleased with the sale and her patience and how it was all handled through First Team Real Estate.

He did a wonderful job. He walked us through our home and gave us tips on how to make it show well. He hired a professional photographer that did an amazing job.

Working with Aura was a great experience!

I loved her service, energy, engagement, and commitment. I would definitely recommend her with family and friends!

Erasmo Nava Mendoza Maria Luz Nava Graciela Nave

When I put my home on the market in Riverside, CA, I interviewed three realtors.

Each had a view of how best to sell the property. Cindy Vedder was by far the best prepared of the three. Her ideas more closely related to what I wanted in selling the property. From the first, Cindy and her team worked as a professional team in selling the house. She kept me appraised of all aspects of the process. At no time did I feel that I was left out. The sale, including the escrow period, was quickly and smoothly completed. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend her as a competent, dedicated realtor.

Robert L. Stephenson

As a first time home buyer I had no idea what to expect, experience or any knowledge of the process of buying a new home Would be like.

Her recommendations for contractors were spot on with pricing, professionalism and completion of all projects.

Lisa was absolutely perfect to sell my home.

... there were a lot of factors involved inckuding my 86 year old mother with Alzheimer's , not wanting me to sell her home....We had lived there since 1972. Lisa was so friendly, so understanding, so patient. Always available, on time, always had the right answer. She is a wonderful person in general and si kniwledgabke.

When we decided to sell these properties we immediately asked Candice to sell these properties for us and she sold all 5 properties within a month! She went above and beyond our expectations in negotiating with the buyers and their agents and also did a phenomenal job taking care of any problems that arose during the entire process. We would highly recommend Candice and would definitely use her again in the future.

Tony & Kristen Barra

Having a great realtor on your side makes all the difference when you’re involved with the most complicated transaction-selling a home!

Angela is so on top of of EVERYTHING. From the very first interaction, I knew she knew her stuff. She takes her time to make sure the process goes RIGHT. Also, she’s incredibly responsive. I’ve had a few realtors in my day and just trust me, hire Angela! She’s the best! This was by far the smoothest process we’ve ever been through in selling our home!

Kortney Pillitteri

Aura was great and worked with my fiance and I for over a year to find the perfect first home for us.

We couldn't be happier. We got into the exact neighborhood we wanted, with the exact style of home that we wanted. She was very knowledgeable of the area, schools, restaurants, shopping, etc. I would (and have!) highly recommend her to anyone in her area looking to buy a house or other property.


If you want a really honest and down to earth person to help you buy a home, I highly suggest that you go with Aura!

She made the whole process so easy for my wife and I. From start to finish, she always explained in detail exactly what we were signing. She never pressured us in any way. She was honest about the areas we were looking in. She never sugar coated anything. The thing we loved the most is how responsive she was. We told her exactly what we were looking for In a home, and that's exactly what she found us. I was told home hunting can take 6 months to a year. I was so please it only took us a month. Thank you so much Aura! We have the house of our dreams!


It was a pleasure working with Trudy.

She worked hard and made sure the transaction was completed. She is an awesome person and very professional.

Patricia Dillon

My husband Jerry and I would recommend Gloria O'Brien to every person that we know who is wanting to sell or buy a home.

I met Gloria about 5 years ago, because our daughters become friends, Gloria and I never became personal friends, just moms of daughters. We spoke when we had to, when she was  dropping off on her way to open house, to show a home to a buyer or heading to the office. I told my husband that if and when we moved, we would use Gloria. I always saw her pride and joy when she spoke of her business. Gloria got the job done, she is very knowledgeable and an expert in the Real Estate Business.

Rae Ortega

August 2011 If you are reading this letter than you are well on your way to receiving the best quality of service a real estate agent can offer.

Being a first time home buyer it was difficult to navigate through the amny programs available to assist one in buying a home. With Gloria's expertise and knowledge of a variety of programs it gave a refreshing feelling to an otherwise uneasy situation. We must admit that along our journey to buying a new home we looked high and low, far and wide for a real estate agent that understood what we were looking for and what optionswere available to us. She spent her weekday evenings and weekends with us in the hunt for our perfect home and within a month's time, we found our home. She walked us through the offer process, saw us through the escrow period, and calmed our nerves when we were stressing. She has a gift and uses her talents working with others to their fullest. Her attention to detail, ability to relate her clientele, motivation to excel in the delivery of service, and caring approach led to an overall AWESOME home buying experience. We highly recommend Gloria O'Brien to first-time home buyers, veteran home-buyers, and any other individual(s) looking to find a new house and make it a HOME. Sincerely, Leonard Brewer Isaac Garcia

Cindy has always been so kind, professional, ethical, honest, sincere and very caring in all her services.

02/01/2012Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Chino Hills, CA.

Steve did a great job marketing and selling our home in a very difficult market. He sold our house in 3 months and provided excellent advice in pricing our home. He was also personally involved in ensuring the appraisal was accurate. Steve is easy to work with and a great communicator. Highly  recommended! 


Cindy Vedder has been my Real Estate Agent for two transactions the past two years.

During the lowest point of the recession, she was able to sell my house in Moreno Valley for more than the asking price and in only three days! She also set me up with an agent in Louisville who found my wife and me a great house at a great value. This past summer I decided to sell my rental house in Murrieta. Once again, Cindy was able to find a qualified buyer who offered Asking Price. The sale went as smooth as anyone could expect. I would not hesitate to have Cindy Vedder as my Real Estate Agent on any transaction in the Inland Empire and surrounding area. She is a real pro who knows the territory!

Steve Flinn

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Kathleen Rapoza through the Home Advantage Program through School's First.

She was incredibly professional, patient, and prompt in all of our interactions. As first-time buyers, we had a lot of questions, worked through several misconceptions, and had a lot to learn in the home-buying process. Kathleen walked us through so many difficult times and decisions with the utmost care, and we benefited greatly from her experience. We toured over thirty homes, offered on a few, and finally found our dream home. Our initial goal was to spend the holidays in our first home, and we closed escrow on November 15th. If it wasn't for Kathleen, we might have given up on owning a home at this point in our lives, we might have made poor decisions in our process, and we wouldn't live in the city we didn't think was possible. We owe her a lot, and we were impressed by her advice, care, and professionalism. Thank you again!

"The best realtor ever.

" ~ Victoria Caputo

11/19/2012 Sold a home in 2012 in San Juan Hot Springs, Murrieta, CA 92562.

I signed a contract with Steve to sell my home in Canyon Hills and he not only took the listing - he sold it for us within 3 DAYS! I realize that in this economy it's not the norm by a long shot, but he took all the factors into consideration and priced the home so well that it not only sold within  3 days but we also sold it for a full price offer. Unheard of in this market.Steve handled all aspects of the transaction in a timely fashion, he was on top of everything, and he helped make a difficult across the country relocation for us a lot less painful.I highly recommend Steve as an agent. Dedicated, hard working, and did an extremely professional and outstanding job for us. Hire him!  


Gloria O’Brian is the perfect balance between professional and endearing.

When you are making a big financial, personal and sometimes emotional decision, you want someone who will be a good listener, knowledgeable in the field and a strong negotiator. Gloria met all expectations and wants what is best for her clients. Gloria was a great coach and very informative from our first phone call to our final meeting when I closed on my home. She kept me informed every step of the way and if I had any questions, Gloria was quick to respond. I felt Gloria was just as ecstatic as I was when my loan funded and she was able to hand me the keys! I told everyone of how fluid the process was and refer her to anyone that asks!

Cathy Sims

There just isn't enough words to describe how amazing Angela is.

Elda was very responsive and took great care of our home while it was on the market.

We were in another state and she went the extra mile to insure that the home was kept clean, monitored our sprinklers to insure it was not over or under watered and other various tasks to maintain the house. She  made minor repairs to the home at request of buyer on her own expense. She was alway there for us!

Eric Rainie

We wouldn't have purchased our house without Jeff's hard work and expertise.

He went above and beyond what was needed in order to obtain our place. I'm so grateful to have found him. If you want to buy a house and beat the competition i would definitely recommend Jeff.


Results Delivered with a touch of Elegance and Class!

First Team most definitely has an asset on their team! The process to sale a home can be tremendous and big decision to make. From the get-go, Aura brought her experience to the table and made the process, what can is say, smooth and easy! As Aura predicted, our home sold FAST which in turn provided peace of mind and elevated my confidence during the process. Thank you Aura for helping us in this process and moment in our lives! God Bless you!

04/05/2014 Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Lake Elsinore, CA.

Do you need a caring, reliable, knowledgable, trustworthy, hardworking real estate professional that can help you find the home of your dreams and/or help you sell your home quickly? Steve is all of this and more. 5 Stars does not do him justice. Steve helped my husband, my elderly mother-in-law  and myself to sell our home within 30 days. He went above and beyond as a matter of fact and coordinated with the lender, the escrow company, and our realtor to make sure the sale of our home and the purchase of another went off smoothly. We had just lost my father-in-law very suddenly and realized we could not maintain the type of mortgage payments we were facing without his part of the contribution. Steve came through for us. He cared about us and understood our needs. The end of the sale is not where Steve leaves you, he was considerate enough to follow-up. Long after after we were securely in our new home Steve came by personally to see how we were doing. Do yourself a HUGE favor....use Steve and recommend him to your friends, I know we do. :) 


We are an active duty Military Family, moved frequently.

2003 we received orders to relocate from Northern Virginia to Southern California, we requested an agent referral through a Real Estate network from Virginia, thus we wer introduced to Ms. Schofield.  Initially our communications were through e-mail and phone, as a result Shirley was able to determine preferred location, price range of homes and desires. When we arrived in March for a 5 day house hunting trip, we were able to select a home after looking with Shirley for 2 days. We are convinced the reason it took such a short time is due to the preparation work Shirley did prior to arriving. She ably identified our needs and desires and previewd over 30 homes before we met her. She had a terrific package for us to preview with comments on all the homes she visited and discounted, plus all the ones she wanted us to visit. We finished our search with time available to look at schools for our daughter, research utilities and lay the ground work for arrival in June. While we were back East, Shirley was on top of all the negotions for us and ably represented us in our absence.  Paul and Stephanie DeSimone

Working with Virginia was an amazing experience for us.

We have never had such a hard working and dedicated real estate agent. She worked tirelessly to both sell our house as fast as possible and to help us buy our dream house. As soon as we enlisted her services Virginia put all her effort into helping us reach our goals. She had open houses at our home almost every weekend and we ended up getting multiple offers. After showing our house all day she would take us to see new homes that we were interested in. When we found the house of our dreams she helped us to move fast and get our offer in right away. Our offer was accepted but then the other agent wanted to back out after they received a higher offer. Virginia fought tooth and nail to make the other agent honor their original acceptance of our offer. Eventually the other higher offer fell through and we secured our new home. Virginia continue to work relentlessly to make sure that the home we were selling closed at the right time so that we could purchase and move into our new home. We are so grateful that we had such an amazing agent to help us through such a stressful time. We will highly recommend her services to anyone buying or selling a home.

Kathleen is an excellent realtor and I highly recommend her.

Thank you 😊.

Kim knows this process inside and out.

She walked us through every step of the way. She responded to any of our needs immediately. Her attention to details made our home stand out from the rest. The fliers just for one thing. They were true to our home. Her morals matched ours which I believe separates her from other agents. Having all the of her contact professionals made our process run seemingly and exactly on time. We have been blessed beyond words having Kim as our agent. She makes you a part of her family. Thank you for having a amazing talented,giving, thoughtful, caring, loving and Over the Top Fabulous agent who is representing your company.


Overall a great experience, there was a lot of frustration on our end worried we might not be able to find a home.

There was a lot of reasurance on Maria's end. They lltold is not to worry something would turn up. Sure enough it did, and they made the process seem very easy. I would use them for my  future home buying as week as recommend them to friends and family.

This lady is awesome.

I can say that Angela is a Great Realtor and a good friend. She made the process of selling our home of 20 years and buying a new home smoother and easier than we thought possible. Angela provides great insight and guidance through the whole process, but only as requested. Well done and highly recommend her for any Real Estate transaction.

Jeff Croddy

It was a pleasure working with Liz who seemed to have all the answers to our real estate questions.

I would highly recommend her and her team which made my sale and concurrent purchase pain free.

Victor P.

09/11/2013 Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Platinum Triangle, Anaheim, CA.

Steve is very professional and handled my short sale hitches or delays...I highly recommend him..He was truly knowledgeable and adept handling the bank and negotiations with the buyer. He was always responsive to my questions and concerns. I could not have hoped for a better team  than the one Steve put together to accomplish my business. 


Please be advised that my office has utilized the services of Cindy Vedder for the marketing and sales of real estate and vacant land.

We have been satisfied with the hard work, determination and competency of Cindy throughout all of our dealings with her. I am pleased to recommend her services to you.


Jamie Davis is a true Professional, I will refer my friends and family for their Real Estate needs.

Jamie walked us through every step and requirement that was needed.

Jovita Jackson and Tommy Britt

Through job relocation I have bought and sold 6 houses all over the country.

Of all the realtors I have used, Gloria was the best by far. First of all she was professional in every way starting with our first meeting and her description of how she would market our home. Secondly she was  incredibly knowledgeable about the home sale process in California which was totally different than anywhere else we have lived. We listened to Gloria's advice which saved us thousands of dollars and got our home sold in the very short time period we had to sell, and this was in a falling market. Finally, a lot of other realtors are often difficult to contact or can't be available because of many personal commitments. Gloria nearly always answered the phone and if she didn't (because she was in a meeting or with another client) she always returned the call within an hour and often texted immediately letting me know why she couldn't answer and when she would return the call. There was no problem at all communicating with Gloria when needed. When we were prepared to give up a large concession on repairs to the potential buyers just to close the deal, Gloria negotiated hard for us and saved us a lot of money. Gloria took care of the house when we moved out of state meeting contractors and coordinating with me several time zones away. I can't say enough good things about Gloria O'Brien. Her hard work and personal attention made my wife and I feel like we were her only clients and that our sale was the most important one she ever had. Hire Gloria to buy or sell your home. If I ever move back to California, I will.

Dixon Terrence

Sam did a great job in preparing our home for sale.

His stager came in and prepared our home. Sams' team of photographers, videographers did an amazing job of presenting our home beautifully in print and film. He worked around our schedule for showings and when we received multiple offers, his negotiating was great. We sold our home quicker and for more than we expected. I would recommend Sam to everyone selling there home.


Gloria helped my wife and I sell our condo in Rancho Santa Margarita.

In just over 40 days, we received an offer and accepted it. Escrow just closed, and we were very pleased with the help Gloria provided.

Eric Christensen

We are incredibly fortunate that we found Gloria to represent us through the home buying process.

She always made herself available to any questions that arose and was a very good communicator with all parties, which is important when you are purchasing something as important as a home. Gloria  never tried to push us into anything, rather laid out our options and pointed out pros and cons to those said options. I had been speaking with several agents to get the right feel for someone and Gloria's responsiveness sealed the deal for me! I will certainly have Gloria as my agent moving forward for any buying or selling of homes in the future.

Raul Campos

You were an awesome & extremely professional realtor, Trudy!

Loved your carefree style with no pressure tactics whatsoever! Thank you, Trudy, for a wonderful & warm home purchasing effort!

JANICE Boswell

I can't say enough about Aura.

This is our second home purchase with her. Our experience from beginning to end with her was smoothly as the 1st. Biggest quality she has is Honesty which now a days is very hard to find. She never push anything on us, and always tried to get us the best deal. We will definitely keep on recommending Aura to all our friends and family. Thank you Aura! Your the best! :)

Charles Johnson/Alma Mancill

I am a selective (picky) person, know exactly what I like/want and expect fantastic service.

My husband and I were new to Corona and needed a realtor that was knowledgeable and professional. Before finding Liz we had gone through two real estate agents which we were not satisfied with. On our third try, we were fortunate to have found Liz to help us purchase our home. Liz is professional, patient, knowledgeable, honest and the icing on the cake is that she is very likable because of her easy going and pleasant personality. I would not hesitate to have Liz represent us again.

Sophia and Sebastian Miles

My son and his wife had used Cathy to sell their condo.

After I had a bad experience with another realtor my son told me to use Cathy and let her do her magic. I took his advice and she brought me 3 buyers where the other realtor had told me the market was not there. She helped me get the last few things on the house completed and stayed on top of the sell until it was completed. I will recommend her to everyone who wants to sell their home. She was wonderful!

Fitzgerald Family Trust

Aura is the best.

No matter what the obstacle may be she gets the job done. I have closed three transactions through Aura. All three times she sold my property within 5 listing days. Its always a hands off experience for myself , I sine the contract and she's off and running. She's a pleasure to work with . We wouldn't dream of working with another agent !!!

Midori Shinada

Liz was there to help use purchase our home every step of the way.

We were able to find just the right house and at a price that was within our budget. She guided us through the paperwork process since we were new to the California market. We recommend Liz to all our friends who are looking to move to the Corona area

Richard trammell

Liz Ottolia is the best in the game!

She made this entire process so lovely, fun and simple. I am incredibly happy with the outcome and time the entire process took. Liz went out of her way to make sure we got the best place our money could buy and to ensure our needs were exceeded. I am so in love with our home and so happy to have worked with her!

christina sarmiento

Working with Jamie was GREAT!

Jamie is patient, responsive, and took the time to show us many, many homes. He wasn't pushy like most agents. In fact, I have recommended Jamie to my parents, and friends. I trust his opinion and have consulted him several times for advice or suggestions. We look forward to working with Jamie in the future as our family's needs adjust.

Gloria was so very helpful from start to finish unparalleled professionalism in all aspects of her job she was able to close the home in six wks she was passionate, dedicated and knowledgable One of the best agent in southern california our heartfelt thanks.

Nath Ashok

it was a pleasure working with a professional like Aura Suhr in getting my house sold as well as in the purchase of my new home.

Aura was very inform and well educated with the current housing market and i will definitely will use her again in the future if i decided to put my house on the market as well as having her being my buyer's agent as well and i would recommend her to people that i know who might be in the market for a new home or wanted to list their home. Again, Aura made it possible for me to find the home of my dream and was able to get my house sold in a very short period of time.


Kris is professional.

He was involved thru the inspections and repairs. He was concerned and wanted to verify all repairs were correct and complete. He stayed to insure things were done right. He worked to get this sale complete and on time. He had to filter thru many offers and got the the one that maximized the selling price and secure the most qualified buyer. After the sale there was several "issues" Kris made himself available to ensure proper transfer of ownership as late as nine at night. Working with buyer agent, previous owner and tenants. I would recommend Kris to anyone.

John B

Kathleen was amazingly supportive and encouraging!

I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone needing to sell or wanting to buy a house!!

Kimberly Alless

It is with great pleasure that we offer this review of Jan Grumman, our first rate real estate professional!

From beginning to end, Jan tackled every issue concerning our home purchase in Coto de Caza with great zeal, efficiency and effectiveness. She understood what we were looking for in a home and what we weren’t. This allowed us to focus within our home purchase parameters without wasting time in our very busy lives. Once Jan found a home that we wanted to purchase, she developed a favorable rapport with the selling agent and was able to negotiate a fair price. Throughout escrow, she guided us to loan and property inspector professionals that allowed us to close without a hitch. This was no small challenge as we own our own business and detailed, lender scrutiny prevailed. We would wholeheartedly recommend Jan Grumman for anyone’s real estate needs. She was simply fantastic

Thomas Rockett lll

This is the second time we've used Trudy.

She is our go-to agent for sure! Whether we are buying, selling or renting, she is thorough and has great follow through. She makes us feel like we are her only customer, but we know we're not.

Tony and April Martin

My overall experience with Cindy and her team was great since day one.

They were very helpful and patient with me. Cindy seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. She was always there to answer my questions even after I had purchased my home. I felt she was an experienced realtor and looked out for what was best for me. Thank you

Ana Galvan

Our experience were excellent in working with Gloria.

She was very professional and knowledgeable about the market. She was able to negotiate and got us a great deal. We could not have been more thrilled! We would highly recommend her service to others. She now is a great friend and above all an amazing agent! Phong.


02/27/2014Bought a home in 2013 in Menifee Lakes, Menifee, CA 92584.

Steve was recommended to us by some friends of ours that had just bought. We were new to the whole thing and were pressed in a sense for a how quickly we wanted to try and find something. The location seemed right and the market seemed to be progressively increasing and we just knew it was now or  not for a very long time. Our first meeting with Steve was great. I went in thinking this guy could give me any kind of run around story he wanted and I wouldn't know any better. But Steve went beyond any expectation I could have had for a real estate agent. He listened to what we were interested in and crafted a plan to look at homes that fit our top requirements. Family friendly, good schools, close to specific locations. We would see a home on his listing that looked terrific and he would be completely honest with us in whether or not that fit into our requirements. He did not dissapoint. Classy guy, honest and someone who at the end of the whole process you can think he really gets it and he really gets us.


We were looking for a home in Corona Kim's expert knowledge of Corona was invaluable.

Kim guided us to the type of neighborhoods we wanted to live in. With Kim's help we found the perfect home in our price range.

Donals Burch Barbara Poland

She is awesome.

Lydia Sanchez

She did a wonderful job given COVID 19 situation, arranging to show house following strict guidelines.

Getting virtual video to give customer preview of the house. I am glad I had extremely knowledgeable real estate agent otherwise renting house would be taken longer..

Ashwani Muir

"Cindy and her team were wonderful to work with.

Cindy made sure that we understood every step of the process and worked hard to help us get our home sold. Cindy made the process as easy as possible for us and always answered any questions we had immediately. We highly recommend her!"

Kevin & Arlene Driver

Trudy is extremely nice.

We chose Trudy because she was warm and personable.

Johnny C Sok

I would like to thank you for helping me towards the purchase of my new home.

I truly appreciate your help and assistance. You make short sale purchasing easy after all the horror stories I've heard.Thank you for doing well in what you do. I wish you the best in your career.

Eduardo Tulod Jr.

I met Elda at a class she is really friendly and Approachable she is great Realtor!

Martha Acosta

Naila is an excellent, knowledgeable, professional and patient agent.

She answered our every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. She was there for us every step of the way and found the perfect home for us. She was always available every time we called and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend Naila to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Mamun Urrashid Abbasi

Gloria O'Brien is a great real estate agent.

She was always professional, knowledgeable and available for any questions. Gloria did a great job in listening to our needs and providing properties that met our needs. At the end of our search, we were able to find a beautiful home, which we love.   If we are ever in search of buying or selling another property, we would definitely contact Gloria.

Lanchy Espie

It is extremely difficult to put in words the amazing experience we had with Gloria from the beginning, Gloria responded to our request very quickly and was very efficient asking all the right questions to understand what it was we were looking for.

It was seriously the most wonderful experience  because Gloria really puts her heart in her work and she enjoys helping people find a loving home. Being first time buyers we had many question, she answer every question and helped us with any problem that arose. We were able to see first hand that Gloria loves what she does. Once again, I just cannot put in words how helpful Gloria was even giving us the contact info for the gas, water and waste so we would have everything set up by the time we moved in. She went out of her way to help us buy our first home so much. If we had to choose an agent again, I would choose Gloria again in a heart beat. Thank you Gloria for your dedication and hard work! You really did more than you needed for my family to find our first home and for that we will forever be thankful.

Luis Estela

Cindy Vedder recently assisted us in selling a home in Corona, California.

Our experience with Cindy was exceptional. She has many talents and is able to support her clients in many aspects of the real estate transaction. There were three main areas in which Cindy was able to participate. First, she helped us negotiate the buying-out of a family member’s one-half share of the home in Corona. It was an awkward situation that Cindy handled calmly and with compassion. Second, the property needed updating, which we felt was a crucial requirement for selling this home in a competitive marketplace. Since we are located out of state, Cindy and her team viewed the property, analyzed previously sold properties, and made remodeling recommendations. We used her Contractor of choice, who was excellent, finished the updates on time and with fair pricing. Third, Cindy’s expertise as a realtor was evident in the selling process. She held an open house, aggressively marketed the home, and assisted our buyer, whom she also represented, to navigate the steps of a VA loan with her financing knowledge. Thanks to Cindy, our home sold in less than two weeks! We couldn’t have done it without her, and would be happy to share our thoughts with others considering a real estate transaction

Jeff and Kathy Reddicks

Angela Brown is THE BEST agent.

Angela's expertise was instrumental in finding my dream home. As a commuter, her knowledge of the local areas was tremendously helpful in selecting a location that fit my needs. Throughout the process, Angela Brown was patient, professional, and reassuring. When the sale entered escrow, Angela Brown was helpful and proactive. She made sure that I was comfortable with the price, the home, and the process. I will definitely use Angela Brown to purchase another home and will recommend her to my family and friends.

Tonia Watkins

Cindy works hard to get deal done and very active in follow up.

DIANA BuiNguyen

It was very fortunate that we met Sam when we decided to sell our home.

His guidance and help made it possible for our home to show well and get a higher sales price than we expected. He was also very available and prompt to communicate by phone or in person.

Larry E.

We wanted to send you a note of thanks to let you know how pleased we are with your service.

You answered all our questions and continuously kept us informed during the entire home buying process. It is evident you are committed to excellent customer service before and after the closing. We will definitely recommend you every chance we get! We can’t thank you enough. Katy & Daryl Sigwing Home Buyers

Daryl Sigwing

Where do I begin this review?

There are so many great things I would like to mention about Aura Suhr it is hard to figure out where to start, but I will begin by explaining our situation pre-Aura. During our over three year search for the perfect home, we worked with several realtors. They were all very professional and we visited many homes, from La Habra Heights, Rowland Heights, Covina, Orange, Placentia, Yorba Linda, Anaheim, Fullerton, Santa Ana, Tustin, Chino, Corona, Norco, all the way to Riverside. We had a very specific set of preferences and did find a few homes that were very close to what we wanted but somehow there was always something that didn't quite feel like it fit. In our weekly open house visits, we met Aura, who was the selling agent for one of the homes. We were not interested in the house, but were very impressed with Aura and her friendly, gentle and relaxed attitude. At the time, we were working with another realtor so we didn't go further with Aura. After another 6 months and a terrible experience with yet another realtor, we decided to stop searching for a home altogether. We had reached the point where we felt lost and were frustrated with the whole process. We had stopped looking online for available homes but then one day I happened to see a house pop up that had all the criteria we were interested in. We didn't know who to contact to help us make an offer but we knew it had to be someone who we could trust and would fight for us 100% but be friendly and gentle. It was then that we remembered Aura. So much time had gone by we had forgotten her name and had to do an email search to find her information. Thank goodness for computers is all I can say. So now that I have explained our situation pre-Aura, let me now tell you just how genuinely amazing it was to work with her. From the first phone call, she was friendly, courteous, and responsive to our wishes. She got us a tour of the property very quickly. When she arrived on site, she was dressed very professionally. The property was farmland and we told her she didn't have to come with us for the whole walkaround because it was very rocky and full of thorny six foot tall weeds. Without missing a beat, she whipped out her sandals and walked us through the gopher hole ridden backlot in 100F heat, all with a smile on her face. Right there, we agreed, Aura was THE realtor for us. We talked to her about what we wanted, what we had to offer and what we needed in our offer. She presented our offer and added some items we never thought to ask for. The counter offer came in and it was not what we wanted and we told her that we couldn't accept. She found a great middle ground, resubmitted and the offer was accepted—all so quick that we were quite shocked—how could it be so easy? I must add here that our situation was very difficult. I don't want to go into too much detail on the complexity of the deal, but I will say that it was surprising how intensely complicated a deal can get. Our escrow went from mid July to almost the end of October and was one of the most grueling, technical, emotional and time consuming things I have ever had to deal with. There were a few times where we almost backed out because so many issues came up. Each time, Aura was there on the phone or text immediately to answer a question, find answers, reassure us and keep us focused on our end goal—the house of our dreams. Every time, no matter how intense things got, she greeted us with a great happy attitude that was so reassuring. She is an incredibly optimistic person and never gave up even when we thought we couldn't go on. Her attitude must have impressed the selling agent too, because she was able to negotiate so many things in our favor. I have to say that my escrow came down to the last minute almost literally and Aura was there, calling everyone all day long to get answers and finalize the deal. Even though I know she has many clients, she never made us feel like there was anyone else—she made us feel like we always came first. She negotiated and fought for us even after the escrow was over when some loose ends needed tying. Unbelievable. And reading this, you may think my review is unbelieveable. Well, I invite you to work with Aura and experience her abilities first hand. Then, I assure you, you will be writing a similar review. I am not sure when we will be using a realtor again, but you can rest assured that the only person we will be calling from now on will be Aura Suhr. Thank you Aura, again, for all your hard work and your friendly, great personality. We appreciate all you have done and we know we could not have gotten the house of our dreams if it weren't for you. Thank you!

Cesar Alvarado and Denise Koyama

To Whom it May Concern: I hired Cindy Vedder after checking out other local references of her work.

Not only did I list my home with her, but she also brought an offer to the table in 5 days - which is totally unheard of in today's market. After careful negotiation where my agent, Cindy, was able to get everything I wanted we sold the home with a 20 day escrow! If you are anticipating the need for real estate related services, I would highly recommend Cindy Vedder. She walked me through the entire process, taking plenty of time to explain each step of the way and all the paperwork making my transaction completely painless

Edward Kellarm

Donald Hyland I highly recommend Cindy Vedder as a realtor, I sent her a referral to list a property in Adelanto owned by my clients in Minnesota, in my opinion she did a terrific job in getting the property sold.

My clients were also very happy with her!

Donald Hyland

We were first time home buyers and we’re so happy we chose an agent that was so helpful.

She was fast to respond when we had questions. The process was fast and easy, we were in our new home in less than 2 months. We would definitely not hesitate to contact Gloria again for a future purchase!

Anthony Cruz

08/01/2016 Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Trilogy, Corona, CA.

Steve was our realtor was the sale of our home. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable in the process of the sale of our home. He always answered questions quickly. I would recommend him anyone looking to buy or sell.


Angela is fantastic.

Her communication skills are great. She cares about her clients and works very hard for them! I am very pleased with my experience with her!!

Betty Yacoubian

Work together

Evangelina Aragon

Kathleen was very responsive and made the whole process of buying my first home seem too easy.

David Camberos

09/17/2011 Sold a home in 2011 in Lake Elsinore, CA 92532.

Steve is a true professional, hard working and got us the results we were looking for.

kat perry

Liz was so knowledgeable and easy to work with!

She was very helpful as we worked to get our house ready for the market, making great suggestions that would give us the best return. Liz explained pricing and showed us the current market, giving a great explanation of why we should price our home the way we did. She was with us and available through the process, and always with a smile and kind answers. We highly recommend Liz!

Shelly and Dan Zink

03/06/2013 Bought and sold a Condo home in 2012 in Murrieta, CA.

I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone. We contacted Steve when our property first came on to the market, couple hours later Steve was showing us the house. Purchasing process took longer than we had anticipated, but Steve kept us up-to-day on what is going on. There was a hiccup on the  approval process and the house was idle for over a year, when it finally came through, Steve contacted us immediately after we have completely giving up hope. With Steve's help, escrow process went smoothly. Steve is definitely WORKING FOR YOU.  


Sam is very responsive and easy to work with.

I will use him again in the future. He made sure everything was at our pace and convenient for us. We have small kids so it was difficult to be always prepared for showings, so Sam made sure we had appointments. He uses great, up to date technology,  most of our paperwork was done on our phones.He aranged all inspections on the same day for us once we were in escrow, which was really efficient. It was just an overall great experience.


Kristopher was very easy to work with & his understanding of all documents was very clear to explain to me what I would be signing.

Would work with him again.

Vicki K Schock

Lisa is an AMAZING agent!

Always on time, extremely helpful and incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate business. She made the entire process incredibly simple and helped reduce the amount of stress that comes with purchasing a home. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family!

William C

Monty is an amazing person!

We struggled finding our ideal house, but Monty helped and made it possible for us. He did a lot of research, walked us through step-by-step, made sure we understood and knew what to expect, and then offered expert advice that helped us through the negotiations. Monty remained patient and positive too despite the many delays we encountered during the tedious process. He made us feel like family and that he cares about us and our needs. It was just a PLEASURE working with Monty and I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Alma Nativdad

Bob Adams I  had Cindy handle the sale of my home in Riverside California.

It was a distressed sale with some issues. Cindy handled and orchestrated every detail as a masterful agent with multiple decades of experience would be expected to do while I planned my move to WA. She brought in prospective buyers once the listing was live. She is well connected and respected in the area - this was not my first home transaction - I can say with assurance she is a consummate professional in her trade. I was kept informed of every development during the listing. My sale went quickly and better than expected. I would not hesitate to recommend Cindy's services to anyone in the greater Riverside area for a real estate transaction of any kind.

Bob Adams

I highly recommend Cindy Vedder and her team.

She helped us through the purchase of our very first home and was dedicated to our interests and proved to be a knowledgeable resource throughout the process. Our escrow closed early due to her amazing work and I would definitely use her again.

Loretta Gilbert

Working with Aura was a pleasure.

She is truly gifted in making the whole process a great experience. She is a professional and there was never a moment of stress. I would highly recommend Aura to a friend and will use Aura for any future needs.

Martina and Audrey Casas

Trudy exceeded our expectations, was on top of everything, and was always available for any issues or questions.

She sold our two separate homes and we used her to get our new one. I'm sure shes a great asset to First Team.

Efren P Rodriguez

We couldn't ask for more from Angela, she was very available to us through the whole home buying process.

Every question or issue that came up Angela was right there to help resolve it. Her local knowledge was invaluable to us moving from another area. 5 stars!

Marshall Montazeri

Naila is a hard working agent, honest, and persuasive enough for me.

I like to have her taking care of my properties and follow up with all the applications we received plus she was looking for the best for us. Thank you Naila,

Mona Assali


Here is my honest review.... First Team knows what they're doing. If agents are looking for silver bullets or expecting something "magic", this company isn't for them. They actually understand the real estate business. If you're looking for an awesome long term vendor, Gloria O'Brian and her team are just great! I recommended it heartily!

Carlos Montoya

August 2,2004 I want to take a moment of your time to acknowledge one of your agents- Mrs.

Gloria O'Brien. I first met Gloria when she was giving an open house on my street for a neighbor three doors down. She put her "Open House" sign right in my yard with an arrow pointing down the street. I promplty went to my neighbor's to find out who gave Gloria permission to use my yard, and also to find out how much my neighbor was listing for. Gloria apologized for the sign and indicated she had knocked on our door to get permission, but we were not home, and she offered to move the sign if it bothered us. She was so sincere, I decided to let her leave the sign in my yard. After a brief conversation, Gloria told me that if I ever decided to list my house she GUARANTEED that I would love her service. I was very skeptical because when we bought our first home the experience with our agent was one of the worst things I've ever had to endure. To make a long story short, about three weeks later Gloria's "Open House" sign in my yard was changed to a "For Sale" sign. My wife and I decided to list with Gloria and also use Gloria to help us find a new home. We were amazed by the amount of effort and commitment Gloria put in to finding us just the right home, and locating the perfect buyers for our existing home. I am a very picky person, and historically I have been known to try the patience of people working with me when I am contemplating a major purchase. This did not deter Gloria one bit. She was willing to do whatever it took to make sure I was satisfied and at ease with all apsects of our transactions. I cannot express enough how important that was to me. I am truly grateful for Gloria's dedication. Thank you for haveing such a wonderful agent on your team. We consider Gloria not only our agent, but also our friend. We will be recomminding gloria to all of our friends and family because we can GAURANTEE they will love her service -just like she promises. Sincerely, Jon and Pattie

Sam was a joy to work with.

I had hundreds of questions and "bugged" Sam almost daily through texts and emails and he was always so helpful and gracious no matter how foolish my questions were. He genuinely cares about his clients and his focus was to help us in any way he could and he made us feel very important and like we were his number 1 client. I would work with Sam again and would refer him to friends and family.

Sharon Cesario

October 18, 2011 Sale of 2077 Carmel Circle, Corona, Ca 92882 Dear Gloria, With this letter, Josy and i want to thank you for the outstanding service you provided in the sale of our home.

From the day we signed the contract to the close of escrow, it took 65 days. This transaction was a short-sale and in the Real Estate world, these types of transactions typically take over 90 days, closing in 65 days is unheard of. We could not have chosen a better Realtor to assist us with the sale of our home. Throughout the transaction you kept us informed of the status and always fought for us in hetting the highest amount for our home. We are satisfied with your outstandiing services and professionalism. Using you to assist us in the future with our Real Estate needs is not a question. We will gladly refer you to our friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and family as we know you will provide them with outstanding service. Once again, Thank You and continue to have great success in your career as a Realtor. Sincerely, Lucio and Josy Brito

Angela is a top rate agent!

She represented us as buyers in a very competitive market. She is kind, gracious, and understood our needs for the home buying process. Her communication is excellent and she would always go the extra mile in contacting selling agents to get important information. On top of being a great communicator, she was very insightful and knowledgeable about the market so we would know what to expect. She was always there for us to answer questions and reassure us. We would highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again.

Lisa was absolutely perfect to sell my home.

... there were a lot of factors involved inckuding my 86 year old mother with Alzheimer's , not wanting me to sell her home....We had lived there since 1972. Lisa was so friendly, so understanding, so patient. Always available, on time, always had the right answer. She is a wonderful person in general and si kniwledgabke. If not for Lisa and her husband Kevin, I am not sure I would have gone through with the sale of the house... But I trusted Lisa, and it was the right thing to do....

patricia trevino

Candice worked very hard in getting our house sold in Corona.

She was easy to get a hold of and did everything to answer our questions. I would recommend her to anyone. She is honest and hard working.

Working with Aura has been such a pleasure and blessing.

She has made looking for a home such a great time and not stressful at all. We found a great home and she made it happen for us. She has been understanding, patient, and looked out for Kyle and I. I would totally re do house hunting with Aura. Thank you so much!

Briana Nava & Kyle Crott

Elda has been my realtor for years - I have recommended her to family and friends, and would do so again.

She's friendly, organized, responsive, and knows what she's doing. One of the best realtors in the area!

Steve Scianni

Angela was amazing.

Very attentive and responsive. Angela loves her job and it shows. We were looking for a home from 300 miles away. Angela made herself available to visit homes we were considering. She gave us honest opinions and suggestions. I highly recommend Angela to anyone who is looking  for a home.

Ali Ciauri

Naila Tariq is a very patient agent,my experience with her was great she has been my agent for over five years, she has helped me buy the right property for me,and give the right solutions all the time.

I trust her with all my needs.

Mounira Assali

Just a great experience from start to finish, she responded quickly, and the customer service was what it should be when making such a large purchase such as a home; we will recommend her to everyone we know.

Jason Marquez

08/22/2012Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Chino Hills, CA.

Steve is a cosummate professional. You can be confident he will be an excellent advocate and counselor for you. I would recommend him without hesitation as either a buyer's or seller's agent.


Aura was very helpful in this process to find a home.

We looked at many homes trying to find “the one”. She was patient with me. I am happy with my final choice and my family is too especially during this corona virus - staying at home. Also, years before when we just moved into the area, Aura helped us find a home to rent. It was a very competitive process but she helped us find the perfect home. Thank you Aura!

Cherri Castro

Lisa provided exceptional service when we sold our home.

She was responsive and led us through the process with minimal disruption to our lives. She took care of every little detail with a warm smile. From start to finish, hands down she is the best realtor we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, a true professional.

Adam and Marissa Rivera

Gloria was excellent in the entire process and knowing the Spanish language help a lot Thanks.


02/20/2013 Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Murrieta, CA.

We had a good but long experience with Steve Osborne in regards to short selling our house. It was not all Steve's fault that it took the time it took to complete the sell and he was good about communicating with us after we established who was supposed to communicate. He was very knowledgeable  and was able to answer all our questions throughout the process. If he did not know the answer he was able to find out and explain to us in a timely fashion. He was very helpful in regards to understanding that we were not in a position to drive back and forth from his office to sign documents so he set up either doing thing electronically or had someone come to us for the signatures. This may sound small but it was a huge help to us. All in all we would recommend his service to others. 


I've had the pleasure of working with Sam for a number of years now.

He's always shown professionalism and passion in his real estate business. I can tell he geniuinly care about this customers and their needs. Working with numerous realtors, it's refreshing to see someone so dedicated to their craft. Anyone looking for an agent should have full confidence in working with sam


Hey Cindy, just a quick note to you and your team to say THANKS!

I can't believe in this market you sold my home as quickly as you did and with a great sales price too. I appreciate all your hard work and I know you will have a great following in Real Estate because your work ethic is impeccable! I'll be glad to be settled in Arizona soon and in no small way I owe it to you. It's a tough market but you did it. If you ever need a referral, please feel free to call me.

The Best!! We had been searching for a home for a year with our previous agent and the same day we met with Steve we got our brand new home!! I could not be happier!! If you want someone that will actually work for you Steve is your man!


I was recently promoted and asked to relocate to Northern California.

My relocation Advisor gave me a list of realtors that I could work with, I met with them all and cost Aura. She made sure that I knew she was going to be there to make sure the process would accommodate my busy schedule and location. Aura was professional and responsive to our needs.

Julie Dominguez

Aura did a fantastic job in every aspect for us and closed early.

Alan and Patricia Heitkemp

Great agent!

! Patient and understanding. Looks after the seller's interest and strives to maximize value.

Ki Yom

Kathleen Rapoza as my realtor gave me peace of mind when selling my house.

There were many hiccups along the way but she explained every step to help ease my anxieties in selling my first home. She is easy to talk to and very responsive. I highly recommend her and will be working with her in the purchase of my next home.

Joyce Mahadevi Farmer

Working with Angela was a great experience!

This was our time buying a home and we didn't know the process at all. Angela was always there to answer any questions and make the process smooth and easy. She was always on top of everything from working with the sellers agents to the mortgage company and escrow company. It was truly a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.

Brian & Stefani Slocum

Kathleen is great!

She's so responsive and patient, and is always available to answer any questions. She's very nice and positive, and made the long short sale process as bearable as possible. Highly recommended.

Scott and Catherine Johnson

Shirley is amazing, she is on top of things and gets the job done.

She is organized, efficient and very pleasant to deal with. We are very satisfied with her performance and would absolutely recommend her to others.


I can't say enough about Aura.

I felt extremely comfortable from day one and knew I was in great hands! Aura is by far the most honest realtor I've met.She is trustworthy, reliable, and always answered my calls whenever i had any concerns. I would definitely have to say that she doesn't compare to many real estate agents out there. She went above and beyond her day to day job duties and always went the extra mile! Thank you so much for doing such a great job and making the purchase of our home an easy and pleasant one...You're the best!!!! We will definitely refer you to all of our family/friends.

The Johnsosns

We were beginning to believe that good, helpful and dedicated Customer Service was a thing of the past.

After unsuccessfully attempting to find a house in the price ranges and area that we felt safe in, and most we spoke didn't even failed to remember our name.  That was until we met Shirley Scofield with First Team Real Estate. The day after we talked to Shirley, we were on the road seeing homes that were in line with all of our requests. Within days our first bid had been placed on a home.  Being a "Short Sale", Shirley up front explained to us what to expect and how long it may take to get answers.  She kept in touch with the moment she had any information. Unfortunately what was thought to be the end of the long wait, the selling Bank suddenly change the sale to a foreclosure and requested that we increase our bid to stay in the running.  At Shirley's advice, we decided to continue to look for another opportunity.  Once again the very next day we were on the road looking at another home that was priced to sell.  It was perfect match and our bid went in that night and within a weeks we were able to move in.  Shirley's helpful concern, guidance, and understanding of our goals, made it a very professional and enjoyable adventure. Not only did we get the home we wanted, we found a friend. Her honesty, integrity, sincerity, and humor makes it easy for us to recommend her to anyone that is searching for real estate.

In my recent purchase of a home in downtown Riverside, I was very lucky to have been represented by Liz O from First Team Real Estate.

Liz handled every portion of my home purchase with exceptional professionalism, courtesy, and attention to detail, and throughout the home-buying process I had complete confidence that she and her team were doing everything possible to ensure that the process moved forward smoothly and as quickly as possible. Any time I had a question or a concern, no matter whether big or small, Liz quickly responded very quickly. She worked closely and diligently with all parties involved in the transaction (including my bank, which was frustratingly slow to act on several occasions) to bring the transaction to an on-time close -- we even closed a day early! And on top of her many qualities as a real estate professional, Liz is a delightful person, which made our already positive interactions even more enjoyable. The best thing you can do to ensure a smooth real estate transaction is to find the best agent possible to represent you. Liz O from First Team is exactly that agent.

Nick Burkhart

Am so satisfied with my purchase and sale that were working on another sale and purchase for my son

Gloria was fantastic in her service to help us to get a great first-house,in a very good location at a very good price.

She always had the best interest in mind for us. At the begging we told her about a house for sale seen by us in the website that will be like our dream home. She told us the  house is not available anymore; it is in short sale and escrow with somebody else. After Gloria shows us a tons of houses we put a bet on one house, but surprise. Gloria didn't rush to get her commission on that house and call us to say that the first our choice is available and ready to close the deal with Chase. We got it! Amazing character, big hurt, knowledge, responsive, great experience. We got our dream house and highly recommend her services. We definitely would use her when the time comes for our next transaction. Thank you Gloria.

Frank Popescu

Elda was a great realtor.

She kept me informed and did everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend her and would use her again. She was professional, honest, punctual and helpful. She treated my house like it was her own.

Manuel Contreras II

09/22/2011Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Murrieta, CA.

Steve is an unbelievable agent! He will go above and beyond to meet your needs. His knowledge and advice really made buying a home a great experience for my girlfriend and I. I promise you, let Steve go to bat for you and everyone will hit a home run!!!

Chris Barnes

06/20/2011Bought and sold a home in 2010 in South Corona, Corona, CA 92882.

Steve listen's to his clients and takes the time to go above and beyond their expectations to make the sale or purchase of a home as stress free as possible . Steve has the marketing, and sales experience to get the maximum value for homes he lists and won't settle until he finds what you desire  when buying. After buying and selling two homes through un-qualified agents in our past we found Steve Osborne and the selling of our home and then searching for 6 months and buying of our new home was wonderful with Steve representing us! 


Angela is the best, she helped with every step of our home buying process, she was very attentive and quick with all forms and information.

She even answered and helped with questions we had after closing. She made us feel so comfortable with our first home purchase. highly recommend her!

Brittany Robles

Kathleen was very supportive during the whole process.

She made sure that we were informed of every step and advocated for us when needed. Her good sense of humor, kindness, and patience were key, to make buying our first home a great experience. We are very grateful for her help.

Laura Gordillo Escobar

Lisa was very helpful and pleasant thru our entire nightmare with lenders I can't say enough how grateful we were to have her on our side I will always refer her to anyone!

!! Thanks Again The Turners

Ray and AMy Turner

11/17/2011 Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Lake Elsinore, CA.

Steve has successfully been selling our listings for my team for about 1 year, during which time he has consistently been utilizing innovative advertising to attract buyers and realtors, conducting open houses, networking with local and out of area offices and businesses to increase exposure, and  keeping me in the loop with his copious updates. His years of experience in both resale and new homes is evident in the depth of knowledge and professionalism he demonstrates. Moreover, his personable nature puts customers and realtors at ease, and I could not endorse him more completely! 


After talking to Jesse for a few minutes at a open house we new he was the realtor we want to sell our home.

He'said up front with you goes out of he's way to makes things are getting done. Communication is at the top of my list. When he tells you he's it about service he gets the job done. Jesse puts a new mean to realtor, he's more a friend. Jesse is #1 in my book


06/20/2017Sold a home in 2017 in Lake Elsinore, CA 92532.

Working with Steve was not only a pleasure but an amazing experience as well. We sold our house in 1 day for over asking price. Such an easy and nice way to remember the experience! Thanks Steve!


Angela knew it would be a difficult process to find me a home, being that I travel so much for work.

But she was willing to meet me late nights and weekends for my viewings. I couldn't be happier with my first home purchase, Thanks Angela

Sam Widman

Aura was absolutely wonderful.

We had a very difficult escrow that took much longer than normal so her communication and responsiveness was amazing. Attention to detail and drive for resolve was there the entire time. I have used Aura before and would gladly refer her to anyone I knew moving to the area she oversees. Very professional and courteous through the entire process and got me top dollar for my home in Riverside California.. Thank you Scott Levario

Scott Levario

Liz made our home buying experience a very smooth one.

She made all of our concerns were addressed. There was never a time we felt uncomfortable or deceived!!! I recommended her to a friend and he bought a home without any problems!

Tuyen contreras

Maria was very professional and kept us up to date throughout the whole process.

Always stayed professional and she is very knowledgeable. If you get a chance to work with her, you will be satisfied.

Hugo and Ashley Sandoval

William Mckinney-Helped me buy my home.

I had a great experience working with Jamie and letting him find me a home. HE did everything I needed him to do and if there is anything I ever may need help with in the future, he will be the first realtor I call. Also If I ever move again he will be finding my new home for me also. I also appreciate Jamie staying in touch to make sure everything is well and if there is anything he can do.

Randi was recommended to me by a friend.

I was looking to sell a rental property in Riverside but I live in Los Angeles. I wanted someone local who could easily show up to the property and knew the area. She was able to help me get $30K more than I thought I could get by having that local knowledge I lacked. She's kind and thoughtful and no doubt at every step of the way has had my best interest at heart. That comes through in her recommendations and knowledge. She's referred me to local vendors who can support me through the process and gone above and beyond. Did I mention my house went into escrow before we even took pictures of it! Super impressed with Randi and would recommend her to anybody!

Tammy Billings

Kathleen Rapoza was a fantastic realtor.

Not only was she well versed in all things realty she made my husband and I, first time home buyers, feel a thousand times more comfortable with the shopping experience. Instead of getting a realtor that was stone faced and constantly trying to sell us a home, she was personable, funny, and simply supported us throughout the entire process. We miss working with her already but love our new home!

Daniel and Brynna Whitmer

Kathleen is an amazing real estate agent.

She was always accessible by phone, text and email at all hours to answer questions or address concerns we had. We found her to be quite knowledgeable with respect to areas in and around Riverside County, and we enjoyed our time visiting houses with her especially during COVID with different rules for different homes. She was always well prepared and willing to accommodate you no matter how many homes you wished to see. She is committed to helping you find your perfect house. We highly recommend Kathleen

Brian & Kim Atwater

As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure what to expect about the buying process, but Virginia made it easy and guided me - step by step.

Virginia is responsive, professional, smart, and is available 7 days a week to answer ANY questions you have. She was able to recommend contractors for little things that needed to be checked on and was always on top of things. She's about finding the right fit for the buyer and building a relation, not just making a sale and moving on.

Luis Rivas

My wife and I were referred to Aura Suhr by our long-time financial officer whom identified Aura’s strengths being her knowledge, empathy, and thoroughness among others.

After our first meeting with her around October 2019, it was clear to us that she was not only knowledgeable but clearly immersed in the real estate business and extremely savvy about all possible options that we could face along the way. We decided that Aura was a right fit for us and we believed she fell the same way about us. We started the process of selling our home and buying another one; understanding that due to contingencies, many issues could arise. This became evident after a few months; however, we were able to make a good team, highlighting our particular interests and Aura consistently looking to match our preferences in properties. It was in late November 2019 that we listed our property and within a few weeks we had accepted an offer. The next step was now finding our new home. The task was difficult due to very limited available properties and the conditions they were in. We finally found our ideal home at the end of December and our offer was accepted. The next step was closing escrow: an extremely difficult challenge considering that there were four contingencies in place. This was the exact moment when we knew that Aura was by far the best agent we could have found. It appears that Aura thrives in the most challenging environments because she was able to pull a transaction that was almost lost due to our buyers facing last minute problems with their loan agent; not only our next home was at risk: all four transactions were at risk. Aura’s persistence and advocacy was clearly evident. Behind the scenes, she was able to make every contact needed and helped our buyers as well in the process to save the transaction (their first home); Aura was efficient and effective up to the final minute and succeeded in finalizing a surreal four contingency transaction at the beginning of February 2020. We can confidently say that we found a place we can call home and so did other families. Furthermore, we found a trustworthy and dedicated agent that was our main advocate during the whole process. We found a real friend. Thank you

Martin Morales

It was great working with Jamie!

He was prompt, attentive, and very helpful towards all my real estate needs.  He comes highly recommended.  Jamie was very responsible and answered whatever question I had.

Dear Cindy: Just wanted to thank you again for the sale of our house in Riverside.

On a "realtor rating scale" of 1 - 10..... we give you an "11". You get a 10 for bringing us an all cash full price offer within 30 days of listing, AND you get a bonus point for "putting out fires" ! Whenever the deal was in jeopardy, you kept it glued together with your expertise, professionalism and winning strategies. If there is a Realtor Hall of Fame-- we cast our vote to induct Cindy Vedder!

Stan Harrington & Georgia Pappas

I was the seller on a property and Sam Tsapatolis represented the buyer.

Sam was great to work with. It was truly the easiest transaction. Sam provided great feedback when showing my home and on the few items that needed to be negotiated after the inspections he was more than fair. Although Sam was not representing me, he was so honest, fair and forward, that I felt my interest were also being protected. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone looking for a great agent.

Nicole Loggia

We are lucky to have met Naila few years back, she has been our real estate agent ever since then , she took care of our real estate deals and provided us with great helpful professional advice , we owe Naila a great deal of appreciations!

Omar Assali

It was a pleasure working with Lisa.

We were moving to Northern California and needed an agent that could make that move as smooth as possible and Lisa came through for us. We had some repairs that needed to be taken care of in order to get our house sold and Lisa went above and beyond in helping us with the process. Also, we knew our home was worth more than a previous agent we spoke to was quoting and when I told Lisa the price we wanted to list our home for she didn't resitate once. She listed our home, it got 23 showings in 3 days and 5 offers! She shared the same enthusiasm for the value of our home that we did. We were very pleased with the entire process and have already recommended Lisa to a couple of our friends. Awesome agent.

John and Isabel Rosser

Kathleen very professional, related to our needs and considerate!

We will recomend her to our friends and family.

Gabriel and Ligia Lopez

4/12/2011 Gloria is an asset to your company, we were thrilled with the job that she did.

We will definately use her again for any & all real estate needs & would recommend her highly. Lynn & Allyson Koehmstedt

Gloria worked with us to buy a home and the experience with her was beyond exceptional!

From the very beginning she was caring, thoughtful and took her time to answer/return every call. She is very detail oriented and made sure all documents were signed and submitted on time. I highly recommend her  to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She was a pleasure to work with.

John Tekin

Jeff is the kind of agent that always looks for the best outcome for his clients.

He sold our home the first day that was in the market after having it for 3 months with another Company/Agent. We are thankful and impressed for how quick the house was sold and he made the closing process smooth and  easy for us.

Lupe Garcia

It was a pleasure working with Gloria and her team for the sale of our home.

Her knowledge and hard work helped us to sell our home quickly and effortlessly. With the help of her photographer, our home looked amazing on the listing! On a personal side, Gloria is a very kind and caring person and even gave gifts to our children on their birthdays and Christmas. I highly recommend the work of Gloria and her team!

The Martin Family

Thanks Jeff!

You helped us buy our first home, your very knowledgeable, very informative, and thank you for being patient with us since we didn’t know much about going through the process of buying a home..... if your a first time buyer or looking for a new home I high recommend Jeff ! 

Johnny Romero

Steve Osborne is a very professional real estate agent. He was exceptional in getting the job done. He performed in a timely fashion keeping us informed with everything that went on with the selling of our home. We are pleased that we choose First Team and that Steve Osborne was our agent.


Deborah was great to work with from the start.

She clearly knows her stuff and was able to navigate my situation (selling a house/buying a house at the same time) with no problem. Deborah gave me good advice before and during the process. Also, she somehow got everything done around my challenging schedule, even when she was going through challenges of her own which affected *her* schedule. She was totally professional at all times. I'd recommend her to anyone who is in the process of selling or buying.

Bailey Smith

The Knorr and Olson team are great!

! I felt so comfortable doing business with them. This was not the first time I have worked with them, and it wont be the last!! They are so professional and kind, it's like doing business with a great friend! I will recommend them again and again!!


Aura not only helped us find our dream home, she also gave us great advice looking after our best interest.

I loved working with her because she was genuine and transparent during the process of buying our first house. She made us feel comfortable and gave us the support needed. (Thank u Aura! :)

Silvia De la Torre

We were extremely pleased to have Liz as our real estate professional.

She was involved in the purchase of our new home and the selling of our old home. She was very personable, attentive and caring to our needs. She found us a house that we both loved and, along with us, she competently negotiated an exceedingly fair price on our new home that pleased both parties. In regards to the selling of our old home, her professionalism and marketing were spot on. Her suggested listing price was the highest in our immediate market area at that time. But, she was confident that we could sell. Two weeks later, we received a full price offer. Due to Liz's coordination, we were able to close escrow on both properties, approximately 30 days later, on the same date. We couldn't have wished for a greater outcome. We highly recommend Liz to anyone in the market for a real estate professional. We wouldn't hesitate to request her services again.

Mark Brown

Cathy takes care of everything and leaves nothing undone.

Julie Tanha

We have nothing but amazing things to say about her she's made everything better.

Jesus and Christina Leal

My experience with Aura as my agent for the sale of my home from beginning to end was more than I could have ever imagined.

Aura is extremely dedicated and always resolved problems quickly when minor issues arose. She really went the extra mile for me and got my home sold quickly and at the right price. Aura’s knowledge of the real estate industry and customer service skills are top notch and really made me feel comfortable throughout the entire selling process. Her attention to detail and follow though makes her excel and exceed expectations.

Myisha Taylor

My husband & I bought our house December of 2009.

We were referred by my husbands sister, Gaby Elo. She had a wonderful experience with Liz. Gaby suggested we give Liz a call! Liz is very professional, she called us back and every detail of our dream home she worked very hard to find it for us! She made our experience one we will never forget! Thank you again Liz for everything! Paul & Vivian Urteaga

Paul and Vivian Urteaga

I highly recommend Gloria!

I contactd Gloria at one of lowest points in my life. I had recently lost my only beloved sister, loving mother and father respectively in a span of four (4) years. We had purchased and watched our dream home being built and had a short but extremely happy time living  in it. Gloria assisted me with selling the structure but never made me feel I was selling my cherished memories.I contacted Gloria on a late Friday afternoon and left a message. She called me back within minutes and scheduled an appointment to meet me at my home on Saturday. Gloria came well prepared with pictures, comps of my neighborhood, reviews of her services, and contracts. I knew from the telephone call that she was the agent for me and my family. The presentation just sealed it. Gloria promised that she would sell my home and assist me with finding a new home. She did both. I have sold real estate before but I must admit that this transaction was very, very smooth--no surprises! I am happily living in a beautiful gated community with the nicest and friendliness neighbors!Gloria works for you and your interest. She puts your concerns ahead of hers, If you want a painless, professional real estate transaction with a caring, sensitive but a fierce negotiator--then Gloria O'Brien is your only option!!

Seward Kennedy

Trudy was extremely helpful and went above and beyond our expectations on finding our first home!

She worked so hard to help us through the process and helped explain everything so that we understood what was happening and offered the best advice!!!

Brandon Michael Downs Morgan Anne Quase

Naila has helped me with 4 Real Estate transactions.

Naila is a true professional. She is extremely diligent and I have never had agent representation anywhere near hers. No matter what side of a deal buying or selling, Naila is very tenacious and drives deals to close! After working with Naila for close to 4 years she has become a close friend of our family. Naila has traveled across counties to make deals happen for us. We look forward to our next transaction knowing that we will be well represented and will always look to Naila either buying or selling. Being in Real Estate development I have many years experiences with Real Estate transaction up Nd down the West Coast and must say I have never, never ran into a better agent!! Thank you Naila!

Alan Baird

Randi was very helpful in the sell of our home, high quality professional photos were done, lots of small details and staging with little decor items, she answered all of our questions and helped us find contractors and quotes for some repairs needed.

She took a lot of the stress off of us and handled everything wonderfully. I highly recommend Randi Nye!!

Sandi & Mark W.

Perfect 5 stars in every way.

I was very lucky to be able to work with such a sincere realtor as Angela. She was always on the ball keeping me informed on everything, always having good communication, and always being funny & calm when something unfortunate would occur. I hope people will get the message out that this is how a realtor should display themselves as. If not, then I'm glad that Angela is there to help whomever is out there needing assistance on home purchasing/selling. Thank you Angela!

Frankie Aguayo

I first met Randi at an open house and liked her enthusiasm and marketing strategies.

She was able to sell my home quickly; giving me tips on how to show the house and keeping me appraised of possible buyers. When we were in escrow, Randi kept in touch every step of the way, and handled the stressful details well.

Janeen Fritz

Angela was wonderful to work with during the purchase of my home.

She looked out for my best interest and was by my side the whole way. I would work with her again if the opportunity arises.

Lori Douglass

Liz is an amazing real estate professional when she helped us sell our home.

Her attention to detail from pricing to suggestions on staging and prepping our home were wonderful! She was great with communicating the continual marketing and negotiating of our sale. The process was smooth and stressfree. We will highly recommend her to our family and friends.


Cindy is wonderful.

I have had several agents throughout the last year. I was ready to give up. I meet Cindy a week ago and my escrow opens today. She is very thorough, professional, and knowledgeable. I am so happy I met her and excited about becoming a homeowner. I highly recommend her.

Tina McDowell

We've been lcasually looking at real estate for the past few years and we have come across a lot of agents.

I never felt as comfortable with one like I did with Jamie. He got the job done quickly and our interactions were always great.

Debbie Leff

Shirley recently sold the house of friends of ours and came highly recommended.

  Shirley looked over our property and told us up front what our value would be, what we would need to do to sell our home, and what the market trend was.  She was right on the mark.  She held several open houses on Sunday's, and worked very hard for us. She also kept us up to date at all times, and was always there for good sound advice. I can think of no other person that I would want to handle the sale of my house. Andy Brown

03/22/2012 Bought a home in 2009 in Lake Elsinore, CA 92532.

Steve is amazing. He is genuine and has a gift for findings dream homes for people. Steve met my wife and I and he got to know us as people before showing us any houses. His intuition for what people will like is amazing. We had looked at so many houses prior to finding Steve, but Steve only  needed to show us 2 before we found our dream home. Through the sale of our house, he was with us every step of the way. He truly cares about our happiness and he has played a huge role in helping my wife and acheive our homeownership dreams. 


My wife and I were house hunting for a while with no luck until Sam came along and helped us out.

He helped us narrow down a location that suited our needs, work and school wise for our kids, and then he went to work. He was sending us constant listing after listing that we went and looked at together. Then we noticed a certain listing that my wife and I really liked that came back on the market as a short sale. The selling agent was not allowing anyone interested to view the home until Sam worked his magic. After constant phone calls on his end, we were the first to view it and put an offer on it right away. Considering how complicated short sales can be to purchase, Sam did not let up. Giving us daily updates on what was going on and assuring us that this home would be ours. Hearing about the nightmares of how long these short sales can drag out, he had the keys to our new home sooner than expected. He definitely has our business on any future purchase and highly recommend Sam to help you get what you want for your family. He will not disappoint, I guarantee it!

Billy Tsiramanes

Great realtor to deal with, she was great in every process getting our home.

. Aura is an asset to her company

Emmanuel Palacios

I was facing the daunting task of having to sell our family home after the passing of my mother.

  Randi made the process an easy one. She communicated with me every step of the way and was straight forward about what to expect. She took extra care with me as she knew this was going to be an emotional time. Randi helped to stage the home for pictures adding her own special touches. She went out of her way to pick up paperwork and hand deliver it.  The house was listed and sold within the first 30 days. I would highly recommend Randi and Davis & Associates if you are looking to buy or sell your home. 

Stephanie Lowery

My experience with Gloria O'Brien was very fulfilling.

She was very helpful and knowledgeable and made the process of buying a home very easy . She walked thru anything that I did not understand and with in 30 days escrow closed and my husband and I are ready to move into our new home. Thank you Gloria for all your help. And with these trying times I am glad God placed you into our lives. God Bless you and your family. 5 star rating.

Sheryl Smith

Aura was great to work with, very professional and her husband makes great guitars!

Darlene Howard

Angela is such a friendly, helpful and amazing Realtor!

She walked us through our first home purchase step by step with almost no stress! She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, and is eager to help. She advocated for us, guided us, negotiated for us, and most importantly followed up on ALL the paperwork from ALL sides. She made us feel as though we were her only clients and gave us her attention. Even during late nights, she would be just a phone call or text away. I am so glad we went with her! She was truly, truly amazing!

Alexandra Castillo

Gloria is an amazing agent to work with.

Her professionalism, personality, and attention to detail were outstanding! It was truly a pleasure to work with Gloria and her team as they keep their client's best interests in focus. They not only understood and worked with our time frame but also responded quickly to any questions no matter how small, you can trust they are on top of every detail which brings great peace of mind. They made our first home buying experience great from start to finish! Without a doubt, we would recommend Gloria and her team to friends and family.

Kat Reyes

She is a very good agent and works well with low income buyers.

Nora Estrella

Randi works around the clock and advocates for you!

Her and her team know the market well and I’m glad we went with her for our selling of our property! Looking forward to using her again to purchase our next home soon. Definitely recommend her!

Emelyn Maldano

Gloria was fantastic!

She was always there for us when we needed her and she made our experience of buying our first home stress free. Thanks Gloria!

David Letko

Kathleen did a great job for us.

This is our second time working with her and she was with us every step of the way. She always communicates quickly, was willing to meet us on multiple occasions, and delivered everything we needed to make the purchase and sale of our house a success.

Brandon and Denyce Norris

I had a great experience working with Trudy.

She is very knowledgeable and helpful. She gives good advice and makes you feel confident in your choices. Trudy is warm, friendly and professional. She's always there when you need her too. Trudy made the whole process of viewing homes, to actually making an offer to buy, a smooth experience. I'm so glad I had her on my side! I highly recommend Trudy Angeloni! You

Jeanne Patricia Knowles

I was extremely happy with Gloria hard work.

Right from the beginning I knew she had best interest for me and my family. With her hard work she managed to sell my home under 2 months.

Jose Lopez

http://www. Dear Gloria,      We wanted to take this moment to thank you sincerely from the bottom of our heart.  With the current economy and losing ones employment, we were in desperate need to reduce our household expense as we could not afford our home any longer.          We needed to sell our home knowing it would be a short sale due the lack of equity. We heard all kinds of nightmare and horror stories of what our friends and family had to go through to do the same.          You have always been very professional, kind, and understanding. Once the house had been listed for sale you were there every week to do an open house, until we had and offer for the house. Once we had an offer, I could not believe how fast everything went. We could not believe our home for short sale was approved in less than 7 business days and our home closed escrow in 30 days.          The whole process was smooth and easy. You made everything possible and easy for us and we will recommend you to all our friends and family in the future.          We will definitely call you again when we are ready to buy another home. Sincerely yours, Ryan & Marygie Gilbert

Cindy Vedder took immediate action on our rushed seach for property.

She offered properties that matched our search criteria as well as showing us all of the ones we found on our own, day or night or weekends. Within days we had secured our dream home, thanks to her hard work and commitment to satisfy our selection criteria.

David McCorkell

Trudy is an excellent communicator and stayed on top of every detail.

We are extremely happy with the service we received from her.

Anthony Martin

We just bought our dream house and Naila was our agent.

She was very knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. She kept us informed about the progress of the process the entire time and was quick in responding to our calls and emails. She is a wonderful agent to work with and I recommend her to friends and family

Yasir Ilyas

I had an awesome experience with my realtor, Kathleen Rapoza.

She made my house seeking and overall home buying experience easier.

Jacquelyn Coe


  Our goal was to get 390k-400k for our home. Jeff was honest and very knowledgeable. Jeff walked through our house and recommended for us to do a few minor cosmetic repairs. He wanted to list our home for 425k which shocked us as the sold comps were showing us much less. We were very  skeptical that he could deliver that very high price but we trusted him.  With in 7 days Jeff delivered and he got us $422k. My family and I are very grateful and would defiantly recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell their home. Thank you Jeff for getting us more than we expected

Adriana Barajas

09/09/2016 - user2477181 Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $575K in Southwest Anaheim, Anaheim, CA.

Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: Sandy recently sold my rental property, ultimately receiving maximum value for it. This sale was extraordinarily challenging because tenants occupied the house during the entire sale process. Sandy took on the difficult task of communicating with my tenants for me to arrange her open house events, sales appointments and repairs and coordinating the tenant move-out process with close of escrow. Her professionalism was exceptional and she definitely represented my needs as her client as vigorously as I would have. She was always responsive (even while on vacation) and was able to anticipate and handle every step in the process for me. It was comforting to know that she was on top of things at all times. I highly recommend her. She is top-notch.

Timothy Jones

If you are a first time home buyer, you need to work with Lisa!

She is helpful, patient, and honest throughout the entire process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions, and no matter how random, difficult, or silly our questions were, Lisa responded quickly and with confidence. We worked with other realtors before working with Lisa, but they didn't compare. They didn't make us feel as comfortable or prepared as Lisa did.  She is knowledgeable and efficient, and she helped to make our home buying experience as painless as possible. With every obstacle that came up, Lisa had a solution: Trust her expertise!

Chrima Luna and Daniel Barnum

Kathleen with First Team was a pleasure to work with.

She made sure we knew what was happening every step of the way. We felt like she was a part of our family, always looking out for our best interests. Sylvia with Schools First was great to work with. She communicated the needs and requirements for the loan well and kept us up to date with what the next steps were. Overall a great experience.

Steven and Jennifer Gyford

Cindy Vedder is one of the most professional, personable, experience realtor in the Inland Empire.

I have owned several homes in Riverside and at one point, I had the opportunity to get to know her and her husband. I was impressed with her dedication, knowledge in this industry and how much she enjoys helping others. You won't be disappointed working With Cindy!

Kimberley Gustafson

Monty went above and beyond for us.

As first time homebuyers, my husband and I had so many questions; Monty answered them quickly. He listened to our requirements and preferences for a home and made sure any listings sent to us fit those requirements which we hadn't had with previous potential realtors. Monty worked around our schedule, even driving out to Orange on a weeknight so we could see a condo before the open house. Once we were ready to put in an offer, Monty gave great advise about how much to offer and how to negotiate. We got our dream house with Monty's help. I couldn't ask for a better realtor.

Maggie Villalobos

Wow it’s already 2 ½ months that I’m living in my dream house that is in heart of Riverside.

I believe that I will live in this house forever as it is in perfect location, near work, easy access to freeways, shopping, and everything. Amazing, after months of searching, I got the house that was the cheapest for its size and in the best condition on the market. I still remember the day I emailed you about this house asking ‘what was wrong’ with it after it got 10k reduced on the listings as it was on market for 11 days, and you followed up with the email and immediately, we went for a tour and we made an offer same day. Though it took 4 months from the offer to close, it’s worthwhile to go through the short sale process. I know it was a complicated process and many last minute issues, but you got it through. You were great because you made everything easier through emails, text, and e-document signature, etc. I really love this house very much, everything looks good, and the shape/condition of the house is excellent with very few minor repairs needed. To be honest, I still have no clue how to turn on sprinkler water for front lawn, but I found a switch for backyard and it worked. Guess I’ll have to hire someone to investigate how to turn it on for front lawn. Otherwise, I don’t have any new issues with the house that wasn’t on home inspection report. Still haven’t decide when to host a house warming party, maybe sometime in spring after I do all touch-up for everything, like lawn yard to be greener, some paint for nail holes, and etc. For definitely, I will invite you over for the house warming party when I host in the springtime. Many thanks for everything, you were greatest!!!!

Silas Wagner III

Deborah Hibma is a very well organized and experienced agent.

She was always two steps ahead of us when it came to questions, paperwork, etc. She was always available to answer all questions. As first time homebuyers, we ask a ton of questions and she never tired of answering them. We had a great homebuying experience because Deborah walked with us through every step. Kinecta has been a great partner through our home mortgage process. Yu Mochitani and Humberto are a dynamic team. Yu was the first person I interfaced with and he works efficiently to get us through the approval process and on to underwriting. His knowledge, professionalism and excellent customer service have made it possible for us to be home owners. Our homebuying experience as been wonderful and without much hiccups due to this strong team and partnership.

Martin & Elita Dao

Randi- We can't thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication, and the time you spent in selling our home.

We were impressed at how quickly every phone call and email was returned. You went above and beyond, even nights and weekends. You offered excellent advice, answered every question, and helped us make informed decisions at every step of the transaction. We are very appreciative and look forward to using you on the purchase of our next home. We will DEFINITELY be recommending you to all our friends and family!

Kathy Halabi

Our overall experience was excellent, we couldn’t be happier with the purchase of our first home.

Frank Munoz and Yesenia Castaneda

You will enjoy working with Sam.

He is knowledgable, warm and friendly and returns texts/phone calls in a very timely manner which was one of the most important things to both me and my husband.

Kathy J

She was very nice , understanding , knowledgeable, good communicator and polite .

Ahdy Mikhael

Angela will go above and beyond for you!

We lived 2.5 hours away from the city we purchased a home in, so we requested to see a lot of homes on each visit we made. During one house hunting trip, we saw about 17 homes in one day! Angela's planning and organizational skills made it easy. She got us a great deal on a great house, and was a pleasure to work with.

T.J. and Danielle Glover

It was with some trepidation that we retained Jan to assist us in selling our house.

That was due to the distance between her office my house and the area that we relocated to. I had nothing to worry about. Jan is a well organized person and was ahead of all subjects that would emerge from time to time. She was a strong advocate for our interest and if that isn’t enough it turns out hat she is also one of the nicest/loyal people I have ever meet. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. To end my testimonial I would like to say that if you need a realtor who is honest to a fault, who integrity is above reproach and will be ALWAYS have your back Jan Grumman is the person for you.

James Bliss

Prior to listing our house with Sam, he made some recommendations on some home improvements.

We followed his advise and listed our home when improvements were completed. with. We were torn if the timing was right to sell, so we wanted top dollar or there would be no sale. Sam was remarkable with  his market plan! Within a week, we had 3 offers over asking price! The sales process went so smooth, that before we knew it, we were moving. To top all of that, Sam became a friend of the family.


Best agent ever.

When I need a new place to rent or even buy I would call Trudy in a minute. Trudy found some one that would rent to me after short selling my house. I am really greatful for her and very comfortable in my new place . I would recommend Trudy to anyone. Shirley Thompson

Jenny Allison -Helped me buy a home Jamie Davis helped our family find a home in Riverside that met all of our expectations.

We have never had regrets in making this decision to live in Riverside. He was instrumental in our finding this home and making the transition for our move from Long Beach to Riverside be stress free. We have been in Riverside ten years and are still enjoying our home. His courtesy and professionalism is absolutely outstanding.

Let me start by saying that Aura is a picture perfect realtor.

She goes above and beyond to get you the home of your dreams. I love that she answered her phone 24hrs a day. She had so much patience with my husband and I. Not once did I feel pressured. She is honest, trustworthy and definitely will get the job done the first time. I will always recommend her to friends & family. Thank you for all your help Aura!!

Kathleen was simply awesome.

We are actually going to miss her! I ranked her high on every element because she was just that awesome.

Lisa was awesome .

She was patient and helpful . I never felt pressure by her to put in bits on houses even after I looked at more that 30 houses. Thank Lisa we love our house and we are happy with our purchase

Eva pat Carrillo

Trudy was FABULOUS!

!! She became not just our realtor, but a friend through the process. She always provided her honest opinion, it was never about just a sale. She was patient, kind, and very supportive during the search for our forever home. We truly feel she was a blessing during this journey of our first home purchase. We can't say it enough, Thank you Trudy!!! Mike + Dina

Michael Gadalla and Dina Ibrahim

In spring of 2006 we received orders back to the East Coast.

Initially we intended to sell our house and thus listed it with Shirley.  The market had just hit it's peak and began to slow.  Although we adjusted our sale price, we decided to lease the home in lieu of sale in hopes the market would soon turn around.  Without hesitation, Shirley found a renter for our property and became our property manager.  During the time it was rented we had two separate tenants, Shirley stayed on top of all the issues and saw them through to solution in a timely manner.  Although we were all the way across the country, we had the utmost confidence in her due to her tenacity and knowledge of the real estate business. We returned in the summer of 2009, once again used Shirley to work our real estate transactions.  Taking advantage of the down market, Shirley was able to sell the home we purchased in 2003, and work a short sale purchase for us on another home in the Temecula Wine Country.  This all took place in about a 3 month's period of time.  With a slow market and even slower processing of short sale transactions, accomplishing all this is remarkable and notable.  Only an agent with incredible skills and knowledge could have worked this for us.  Additionally, in 2009 my elderly mother and her husband moved to Temecula from Florida and Shirley previewed and represented them in purchasing their new home as well. Shirley has done an amazing job representing us on several occasions. Her knowledge, experience, technical and people skills set her apart from any other agent we used.  Her preparation and research makes it easier for folks transitioning into an area to gain insite into the market and feasible alternatives.  We have and will continue to recommend Shirley to folks we know are interested in real estate in our area.  We know Shirley will do just as great of a job for them as she did for us, it's simply her way of doing business. Paul and Stephanie DeSimone

Virginia consistently went above and beyond to ensure our needs were met.

She always checked in to see to see if there was anything we needed and, by the end, we felt as if we were more than just clients to her...but perhaps we had gained a friend.

Juan Acosta

Cindy is an outstanding real estate agent.

Cindy puts 110% effort in meeting your needs and requirements. Cindy, thank you for all your hard work and efforts for the past several years.

Erick Baziw

Kathleen was so kind and patient with us!

My husband and I are first time home buyers and she helped us feel confident throughout the entire process. We never felt rushed, urged, or pressured into doing anything that we didn't want to. And she was very prompt about answering any and all of our questions through text, email, or phone. Very approachable and knowledgeable. Thank you for helping us find our first home!

Trang Nguyen

"A true professional who could and did answer all my home selling questions and concerns.

She was a wealth of information regarding my neighborhood and the surrounding communities. I had two of my close friends meet Angela and they were equally impressed as I was of her ability and knowledge."

Neal Johnson

Naila was a great choice as a guide and help to sell our house.

She helped us and guided us with the home selling process, and made the experience very smooth.

Imran Karim

Bought a Single Family home in2016 in Eagle Glen, Corona Ca Gloria patiently helped us find our dream home.

Not only did she help find our home but was able to help find us a lender who was able to get us the best deal in town. She has also successfully sold 2 of our homes in corona this year as well. She competitively marketed our homes and made our final  transactions go as smooth as possible. With her knowledge and networking skills she is able to successfully find you a home or sell your home in this competitive market in a short amount of time . Gloria's skills and knowledge of real estate shows in the pride she has for her profession.

Dawn Chavez

Cindy, Thanks for all the hard work.

You were extremely helpful throughout this process and responded to any questions/requests I had in a timely manner. I am always looking for good Realtors to work with, they are hard to find. As I mentioned to you on the phone a few days ago we just started getting lending tree leads to get some more business. On occasion I get borrowers who are looking to get pre-qualified and are not working with an agent yet. I will definitely refer any borrowers who are looking to buy in the Riverside area to you.

Luke Wasyliw

I can't believe I found an agent as amazing as Aura - she had all the traits I was hoping to work with in an agent, as well as going above and beyond the level of service I would've ever expected.

My initial home-hunt started with a different agent, and switching from that agent to Aura was like night and day. Aura enthusiastically and knowledgably answered all my questions and was immensely helpful in scheduling viewings and drafting offers. In this competitive market where properties are sold the day after they're listed, Aura was a miracle worker and helped me find a property I can now call home. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell, and will seek her out in the future if I have any more property needs.

Pryscila Verduzco

While he did an all-around great job, we most appreciated his responsiveness and ongoing communications.

Angela Brown made my experience of getting a home easy, she got my home fast!

I’m going to recommend Angela to all of my friends and family!

Veronica Torres

Angela was amazing, on 2 different occasions she took us house hunting.

When we found a house we liked she worked really hard to negotiate the price lower and ask them to help pay for some of our costs. We have worked with several agents before, Angela is by far the best.

Christian Brown

Cindy helped me to purchase an REO investment property in 2010.

She is a highly trained professional, and was able to negotiations and close the deal in less than 2 weeks.

I would recommend him to family and friends.

Robert Cesario

Thank you Jamie Davis for making all this possible.

You busted your behind to make it happen knowing all the obstacles we faced. Without your persistence, patience, and expertise this would have never happened. 3 years ago, you made our dream come true by getting us into this beautiful home. We made endless memories and now it's time to move on to bigger and better. You are truly amazing at what you do. Thanks again Jamie for all your dedication and hard work.

Danielle Becerra

November 21, 2011 Dear Gloria,     We wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work and diligent efforts in selling our home.

Having bought and sold many homes over the years, we have worked with several reators. You, by far, were the best we have ever dealt with.     Unfortantely, the economic crisis hit us at a bad time when we were undergoing major changes in our business. We were faced with some very difficult decisions. Ultimately, selling our home in a short sale was the best decision we could make considering the totality of our situation. Once we made that decision, it was a matter of finding the right realtor to expedite the process. We interviewed several realtors, includiing some we had worked with in the past, but believed that you had the right combination of experience and drive to make it happen.     Everything you said you would do you did, and more! From promoting the house, to dealing with the bank personally, to helping to ensure the escrow closed on time, and even helping to smooth the moving process. You were absolutely tremendous. Warmest regards, Dennis and Cindy Ray

Angela is an incredible realtor!

If you want a realtor that will do whatever it takes to find you your dream home, Angela Brown is the realtor for you! When my wife and I found our dream home Angela was in the middle of showing us everything and anything we wanted. She is a great listener and really understands and listens to what we wanted in a home, and she found it! She is not going to force something on you, or take you out of your comfort zone when it comes to price. We can't say enough great things about our experience with Angela! Not only is she extremely knowledgable about real estate in general, but she is emotionally intelligent as well, and she is very down to earth and easy to talk to. We consider Angela a friend after this process. Thanks Angela!

Cory and Vanessa Taillon

10/23/2014 Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Riverside, CA.

Steve was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with all aspects of our transaction. He coordinated with our busy schedule and was always punctual when viewing homes. His expertise helped guide us to make sure we were getting the most value for our purchase. He provided us with an extensive report on  the homes we were interested in and once an offer was made he followed up with all the pertinent details to make sure escrow closed on time. If you’re looking for an agent that’s going to work smart for you then I highly recommend Steve. I know we’ll be using him again in the future.  


Naila genuinely cares about her clients and makes what is best for them her priority, very happy with her services and assistance in buying our new home!

Melinda Correa Isham

Sam did an awesome job selling my house.

He was a pleasure to work with, guided me to make presale improvements that got the most return on my dollar and got a higher selling price than I expected. From my experience I highly recommend Sam.


Gloria and her team went above and beyond for us.

She helped alleviate our worries in what could have been a much more stressful process. She really went to bat for us and fought for us in both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Special shout out to Kat for helping us find the perfect home! Although we don't want to go through moving again anytime soon, we would not hesitate to go with Gloria and First Team Real Estate again and we will recommend them at any opportunity we get! Thank you again Gloria! For Everything!

Greg & Tiffany Rico

My family and I love the way Elda helped us find the perfect home.

I highly recommend Gloria Obrien.

She did an amazing job for my family.

I was introduced to Randi Guerrero by Mike and Maggie Heartwick owners of Destiny Home Resources.

Randi Guerrero is a real estate agent with First Team Real Estate in Corona. Until I met Randi, Maggie and Mike I had become very cynical, believing everyone was out for themselves that no one cared about the other guy that the world is a hard tough place, I was proven wrong by Randi, Maggie and Mike. Mike and Maggie paid a fair and honest price for my home in cash then put me in touch with Randi who truly went the extra mile for me. My van was not available to make the 100 mile round trip to look at homes in my price range Randi went the extra mile by using her car to show me available homes I could afford with the money I received from the sale of my home. Randi and I made nine trips, meeting with park managers, making offers on homes in my price range, and doing home inspections, I can't believe any other agent would have taken the time to help me find a home that Randi did. I know of no other Real Estate sales person who would have been willing to help a client in this manner. Randi also brought the papers to my home for signing instead of going to her office, as it took over a month to repair my van. That is what I call going the extra mile and the true meaning of customer service. Thanks to Randi, Maggie and Mike my financial situation changed drastically, I was able to breathe again, and did not need to pinch every penny so hard just to get by. If you are a senior feeling hopeless, stuck in a situation which you have no control over like I was, may I suggest you make the call first to Maggie and Mike at Destiny Home Resources to sell your home for cash. If you are looking to use your cash to purchase another mobile home, there is no one else I would recommend other than Randi Guerrero at First Team Real Estate with 30 years’ experience in buying and selling mobile homes. I know it is a tough world out there, and it is even tougher on seniors trying to get by on a fixed income living in California, it is a blessing to know there are quality people out there who are truly willing to help. They say you can't pick your family, but you can pick your friends, through this process I have been blessed with three new friends, who knew. Sincerely, James E Holly

I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did in marketing and selling my house.

Questions were answered promptly and I was kept informed of the process every step of the way, which made the sale go very smoothly. Your skills and professionalism exceeded my expectations. I will highly recommend you to all my family and friends! Kate Schmidt

Kate Schmidt

We loved working with Kathleen!

She was always available to assist us and would respond quickly to our questions and requests to schedule viewing. She was fun to work with!

I had the extreme pleasure of working with Cindy for a few years in search of my new home, she endured a lot of patience and understanding needed during this search.

Cindy was exceptional, always positive, helpful and educating in this search. When it finally came to an end I was completely satisfied with the result. Although not looking to sell :) I would without hesitation work with Cindy again. Thank you

Angela is professional, friendly, courteous, and reassuring.

My wife and I were first time homebuyers. Like many first time homebuyers, we had many questions that made our nerves fluctuate in all kinds of directions. Angela helped calm our nerves by answering every question and concern from beginning-to-end during the home buying process. She made herself available to us around the clock. By the end of our journey, Angela helped us become homeowners. Becoming a new homeowner can be a stressful process but it definitely makes a difference collaborating with a caring customer centric professional like Angela!

Serjio Trujillo

From the start you can tell that Gloria is an experienced agent who is with you every step of the way.

Gloria is very passionate about her work and provided peace of mind throughout the home buying process. She was extremely responsive when we had questions and was able to provide guidance a countless amount of times. We purchased our very first home and will definitely be using her for any future home purchases. We highly recommend her.


The job of an agent is to get you into the home of your dreams.

That is Aura's goal and what she strives to do. She will fight for the buyer to get the specific home that they require and will makes the selling of a home a breeze.


Jeff Davidson was a true pleasure to work with.

Sold our property quickly with a specific plan targeted to market our 30 acre parcel.I would not hesitate to use Jeff in the future either buying or selling.

Charlene Raymond

Gloria is great to work with.

Gloria means business, gets the job done, always answered or text back Immediately, she’s knowledgeable and professional always kept me informed. I would recommend her and her team to everyone and am super happy with her help selling my home and helping us buy another.


awesome job

Marwa Ahmed

OMG, I am sure a spirit from above directed Janice into my life!

I have been caught up in so many bad expierences since 2000 with life I felt very sad, cheated and robbed of my previous happy, satisfying, and successful life. Even my Medical Doctor discussed my sadness with me as she altered my medications for hypertension and heart ailment to help lift my spirit. I had been led to believe by a lender for veterans that my deceased husband's military experience could qualify me for a house with a low down payment. Janice found my adult disabled daughter and myself surveying on the internet for a home. She listened to my story of sadness, grief, and just plain bad luck in struggling with husband's failing health and death from diabetes, my bad luck and near death experiences with breast cancer and how I had lost several hundred thousands of dollars with the real estate collapse of recent years. She said, "You deserve to have life become a positive experience for you and your daughter! I am going to do whatever needs to be done to help make this happen for you! And "By Golly" , she did. She weathered the entire process of home buying litterly for months and kept me on track for purchasing this home. The view out the living room is spectular! The home itself is upgraded in every way possible. It is built as if the best of engineers had a finger in every detail. I am absolutely delighted to be able to live out the twilight of my life in this home! I would not be able to make such a proclamation if Janice had not come into my life. I have great praise and gratitude for this expert and professional real estate agent. She needs to be the chief officer for educating all real estate agents. I will always treasure this house purchasing experience with her. She must be the author of the bestselling textbook on positive support!!

Margaret Boone

03/31/2015 Sold a home in 2014.

Steve was our Realtor during the sell of our last home. I am so glad that we worked with him, as he is professional, knowledgeable, and gets results! He is always willing to answer questions, and responds quickly to calls, texts, and emails. I honestly wouldn't even consider using anyone else. Steve shows great integrity and combined with his experience makes him the best in the business. 


Jamie was amazing!

We were first time buyers and he went above and beyond for us! We will and have been referring him to our friends and family!

Danielle Salas

Cindy Vedder was one of a couple interviewed by my husband and myself to represent us to sell our home.

Sunday was the only day we could interview anyone, as my husband was working out of town. We had some Realtors that were not available on Sunday. But Cindy showed up and was extremely prepared with a complete history of our home, and ideas of what she could do to sell our home. Having a large fully custom home and knowing we wanted a good price for it made it more of a challenge. But Cindy felt she could find the right customer. We had not intended to sell at this time and were still finishing up a major renovation at the time. We were also in the process of starting to completely change the back yard when my husband accepted a position in another part of the state. Surprise for me. With him gone this left many things up to me, and some things I could not do. Cindy was very helpful, even offering her husband's help. He touched up the front door where there had been sun damage, and even made a few dump runs for me. I thought this was above and beyond. He was just fantastic, offering whatever help he could. Cindy also was always asking what they could do to help. This was a great support system for me. Cindy and her staff made up a beautiful slideshow for MLS. Cindy and her staff did a number of Open Houses, to get as much exposure to the public as possible. Advertising in Orange County etc. Even did a "Wine and Cheese" Open house. Although it took much longer to sell than we anticipated due to the slow market in our price range for custom homes Cindy did everything she could to make the deal work. And we are moving on to new and exciting adventures.

Peggy & Mike Williams

She is amazing person .

She always answer my phone call and she helped a lot. I highly recommend her . Thanks Naila ji for everything

Nancy Jacobs and Ken Lamb

10/11/2016 Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Sun City, Sun City, CA.

If you are looking for an agent who works for you regardless of your circumstances then Steve is the agent that I would recommend! When I first met Steve and was curious about the process of selling my house, he instantly started asking me about what my goals were and how much did I ultimately want  to sell my house for. Then, he started to work towards that goal by analyzing actual facts about the surrounding area and what was realistically achievable etc. which I really liked. There were no cutting corners or settling for less to sell it fast, or none of that… We already knew that our house was going to be a challenge to sell based on location and our price within the market at the time, and it took us about six months to find a qualified buyer… but during the entire time we had constant traffic and open house events, and pretty much every single agent that would schedule an appointment knew who Steve was and how much they enjoyed working with him, which is not something you hear from competitors. Not only is he one of the most skilled and connected agents with over 20+ years of experience out there, but his honesty and patience to reach YOUR goals while providing his professional insight along the way is what sets him apart! I quickly learned that he works with many agents and he spreads the wealth among his colleagues to get the job done no matter how small or desirable the project is… once he sold our house we turned around and bought a brand-new house with his team within just one showing. I can’t say enough about Steve and his team, but I say this, I would recommend him in a heartbeat!!! 


She is great person and very helpful.

I will definitely recommend her to friends and family. Thanks

Navpreet Kaur

Angela was great to work with.

She is very kind and was always available to answer any of our questions, even on her vacation! Anytime we had a problem, she had a solution. We will recommend her to all of our family and friends.

I met Virgirnia while I was looking for a house to buy after selling my house.

Virginia had always answered or call me back for questions and guide me through the process of buying a house. The best thing is she also guided us d b

I want to commend Angela Brown as an extraordinary realtor.

After her handling the sale of my Crestline home, I can't help but to think of her as a good friend because of her sensitive and wise answers to my every question. After my husband and I retired and built this house as our retirement home, we lived in it for 25 years. Angela was sensitive to my sentimental nature regarding the sale of the home. Just one example of how she came up with solutions to problems as they arose: Shortly before the first showing, a huge wind and snowstorm left debris on my deck, including large branches that were too heavy to move. Without hesitation, she provided a handyman who completely cleared the deck and removed even the broken glass from a patio table. She relieved my worries many times, and made the entire process much easier. When I asked for more than several realtors' suggested asking price, she agreed, and the house sold for my asking price quickly. She was always quick to respond to my needs and questions. From start to finish, there was never a time or situation with her that left me frustrated, or waiting, or uneasy during the process. I'm sure she is not the average realtor, having gone over and beyond to be kind and thoughtful. I will always recommend her to friends or anyone looking for a really good realtor. It could not have gone any more smoothly.

Coletta Olson

My wife and I were new to the Lake Elsinore area all while trying to purchase a second home from 350 miles away.

Angela was able to go view homes for us and provide details that were otherwise not available to us. She would take video and pictures for us and provide her honest opinion of the homes  we were interested in. Working with Angela as our agent was an outstanding experience and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you so much Angela, we love our new home!

Rich Ciauri

We met Naila back in 2015 @ an open house she was having.

My impression after meeting her at the open house was receiving a personal thank you card from her with her own hand writing saying thank you for stopping by her open house and offering her services. I thought not everyone takes the time to write a note most I’ve seen is a postcard with stamped on messages:). This made me think It’s not only her job but she takes this with personal care. Sure enough we had her help with the purchase of our house back in 2015 and having the experience we had with her we did not doubt to call her back to sell our house and help us get to a bigger house. I can say she treated our family with care because she always made time for us during our time frames to go see houses and always picked up my calls when ever I needed to talk to her, I can say maybe 2 or 3 times at the most my call went to voice message. She knew how and when to negotiate to our needs and helped make it possible for us to obtain the perfect house for our family. We are very happy and feel blessed with our new home and part of that is due to the help we received from Naila. I would recommend Naila at any time to help you with the purchase or selling of your home. To end I will say we feel we made a new family friend. Thank you Naila :)

Guadalupe Hernandez

If we could give Angela Brown 10 stars we would!

We chose Angela to sell our house after witnessing her salesmanship at another home down the street from ours. We had never sold a home before, so had no idea what to do or expect. Angela dispelled any worries. From the moment we first met her, we knew we made the right choice. Her communications skills are through the roof! She always answers her phone or texts, even if in a meeting or on her vacation. She will treat you like you are her family because that is who Angela is. She loves what she does and she loves helping people. We ended up having a very difficult escrow due to extenuating circumstances that had nothing to do with us. Those circumstances were not Angela's responsibility, but she got involved anyway. She did the work of two realtors! She takes each new client very personally and will work tirelessly until your sale is complete. She even came to say good-bye to us on our moving day. Angela is not just our realtor, she is now a family friend.

John and Sharon Hoefler

Simply the best!

Wow, what a performance of skill, experience and negotiating power. Gloria is an industry star that I would recommend to anyone in the region. She was able to get top $ under incredibly challenging circumstances with the sale of my home and I am more than pleased with the  outcome. A key strength of Gloria is her strong negotiating skills, something that is vital when buying and selling. Make the call and let her work for you, she is worth it! 

Paul Guerrero

5/31/2004 I called your office on an early Sunday morning and Mrs.

O'Brien answered the telephone. Once I inquired about a listed property, Mrs. O'Brien was willing to research other properties of interest and offered to show my wife and myself other properties. It was apparent to my wife and myself that Mrs. O'Brien was not your "typical" realtor. We have bought and sold numerous properties over the years- and Mrs. O'Brien was different than anyone we ever conducted business with in the past. First and foremost, she lives by her standards of honest and integrity about her profession. In essence, she finds properties that her clients want, as opposed to showing a client numerous properties wasting time. We purchased the second home that Mrs. O'Brien showed us, because she had the sense of what we were looking for and she did not want to waste idle time. Throughout the thirty-day escrow phase of this property, Mrs. O'Brien would call daily to keep us apprised of the status of the funding and escrow of the property. This quality in and of itself, showed the dedication Mrs. O'Brien has for her clients. Ironically, Mrs.O'Brien lives true to the words she has written on the back of her business card. My wife and myself truly have found our "realtor for life". In fact, Mrs.O'Brien is going to list our current home - as we prepare to move into the home we just purchased. First Team Real Estate is truly fortunate to have Mrs. O'Brien as part of your team.  Mark & Jennifer Dimaggio

My wife,and I would like to highly recommend Cindy Vedder for any real estate needs you might have.

We listed with her and after following all her suggestions our home sold very easily and my wife,and I were simply so excited,and pleased with Cindy's professionalism,and expertise. We couldn't of asked for a better agent than Cindy!! One other thing that stands out about Cindy that my wife,and I liked was her cutting edge knowledge,and experience of the Real Estate Market. She's always up on the local real estate trends. Thank you Cindy for everything you did for Vanessa,and myself.We really want to give God all the praise,and glory through Jesus Christ our Lord what He did through you,and your company.You,and your company are truly awesome!! Cindy, I want you to know that you were definitely a god.send to Vanessa,and myself,and for that we are very grateful.God bless you,and your family,and take care of yourself. Thanks again Cindy.

Chris & Vanessa Perna

Unbelievably in this market you not only found me a home as a first time home buyer, but you also found just what my cousin was looking for to.

We really are happy that we switched agents and used you. It seemed almost impossible that we were ever going to find homes, especially with our FHA Loans. Both of us can't believe we are in a new home. Thank you so much for all your hard work and yes it was hard work but you stuck in there with us!! We will tell all our family and friends too.

Gus Serrano

My husband and I LOVE Schools First Credit Union and we love the service we received from Kathleen.

She was true to her word and a pleasure to work with. Kathleen also responded to our questions quickly and the information was accurate. Kathleen, is very professional and she represents her profession well. We wish her much success. With her work ethic and drive, my husband and I know, she will continue to succeed. Dawn and Bryan Murray

Bryan and Dawn Murray

Lisa is awesome!

The whole process went more smoothly than I thought possible. Lisa is an expert and she immediately responded to all of our questions.

Michael and Jenny Baker

The BESTagent.

Will definitely use her again and recommend her to friends and family. Angela was knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and most important not PUSHY! When the sale entered escrow, Angela was helpful and proactive. She made the process go very smoothly.

T. Watkins

The whole experience from start to finish was excellent.

Starting with School First federal Credit Union Loan officer Jose Santoyo and his recommendation to work with Gloria O'Brien at First Team Realtors. They both were very helpful in helping me navigate through the whole loan and purchasing process. Thank you Gloria for always being available to answer my questions, you are a true professional in the industry.

Manuel Marcial

Elda is fantastic!

She got us our full asking price with closing costs paid by the other party. I highly recommend her as she is experienced, honest, friendly and trustworthy.

Lisa Contreras

Candice is the most attentive real estate agent that I have ever dealt with.

I highly recommend her as a real estate agent for the most important purchase that you will make in your lifetime.

Lynn R.

I can’t thank Randi Nye enough!

Our text message thread is proof; I’ve likely exclaimed ‘thank you!’ and ‘you’re the best’ at least 100 times over the time we’ve worked together. As a first time home buyer in a VERY competitive market I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Randi was always one step ahead and had the knowledge and skills to make my offer as competitive as possible. We ended up finding the perfect house for me and Randi made the process as smooth and easy as possible. Thank you for the 101st time!


Randi and her partner Jamie are awesome!

They are knowledgeable and helped us with the purchase of our home. We almost lost the home we wanted and thanks to their constant push and work we were able to get into the home of our dreams. She is professional and super dedicated, working around the clock! I would totally use this team again.

Emelyn Maldano

We had a terrific experience with the SchoolsFirst Home Advantage Program and with First Team Realtors.

After attended a free home buying seminar at Schools First, we signed up for the program and were paired with our wonderful realtor, Kathleen Rapoza. She was incredibly patient with us (first time home buyers), offered excellent advice, and answered all questions promptly and clearly. She never pressured us, and even was happy to let us revisit properties several times as we made our decision. Overall, this was a great experience, and I totally recommend both programs.

Jessica Purcell and Alan Brelsford

Cindy Vedder is by far the best realtor I have ever dealt with.

Knowledgeable, professional, prompt, available for communication anytime. Makes everything easy. No one else compares. I recommended her highly to all of my friends.

Joseph Hernandez

Candice is the BEST!

She is a fantastic negotiator with years of experience. She went way beyond the norm to sell our home. She was always available by phone and responded to all of our questions and concerns immediately. Our experience was nothing less than phenomenal!

Anthony & Kristen Barra

Naila Tariq, you made it as easy as 123 eight years ago helping us buying our first home.

And now you did it again and sold our house in 14 days, just as easy as 1234. Naila Tariq is an honest, hardworking, and a proven professional in Real Estate. Marketing, listing, approaching and closing the deal in a short time is her specialty and definitely, I will recommend her to my friends and family.

Robert C Perry

Any real estate agent can put up a sign and hang a lock box.

Most agents can handle a typical real estate transaction when everything goes perfectly. The truth is very seldom do real estate deals go without a hitch. Buyers don’t qualify, appraisals come in under the selling price and property inspections reveal more property issues than anticipated. That’s when you need an experienced problem solver like Candice. The real work for an agent begins when escrow is opened. As out of town sellers, we were totally dependent upon Candice to manage our sale. She worked with contractors to insure that any repairs were completed on time and within budget. She was a tough negotiator when representing our interest and when a problem developed she immediately responded. Our sale could have unraveled twice after escrow was opened without this lady. Living hundreds of miles away we needed someone we could depend upon for honest advice. Thankfully Candice Wescott was there. Keni Calhoon Pilot Hill, CA

Angela is an excellent realtor.

She is very responsive and knowledgeable. She is also very personable, and does her utmost to guide through the home buying process from start to finish. Highly recommended.

Eliseo Lizarraga adnAngelica Ceja

Our experience in selling our home with Angela was MORE THAN EXCELLENT!

!! As everyone knows, the process is extremely stressful and is full of pitfalls, and there are many ups and downs until reaching the final closing.... Angela helped us through all of it with patience and kindness. She did not laugh at the million silly questions I had, nor did she get frustrated each time I asked her to explain some process to me that she had already explained (in great detail) 234, 691 times before!!! I can't say enough about how she assisted us in making a good decision when faced with 52 showings and 10 offers.... She validated our own thoughts and added good information to help us select the "right" buyer for our "well loved" home. Angela went over and above anything she should have been doing when she assisted us during the removal of the tenting after termite fumigation. We had already left the area (we are relocating to another state) but were concerned about roof damage from the tenting. She stepped up and took her own time to go to the house and take video of the tenting being removed. Then she checked the inside of the house to ensure all was left in good condition for the buyer. I can't express how much that helped us. Especially because it was not something she had to do. Angela is the real deal. Everyone selling or buying a home should be so fortunate as to have a professional of her caliber and dedication to assist them through the process. THANKS ANGELA!!!!!

Stephanie Seitz and Stephanie Blakely Webber

If you are a first time home buyer trying to find a realtor, or just trying to find a realtor in general, then look no further!

Gloria truly puts her clients first, and has such a vast array of knowledge and experience that you really feel comfortable with her. Gloria was also assertive on our behalf and was not afraid to make sure that we were getting the best deal possible. It’s no secret that the home buying process can be exhausting and intimidating, but through it all, I know that I’m thankful to have had Gloria O’Brien as our realtor!

Josh Barajas

I have worked with Cindy Vedder and her team for the last few years, and have found them to be among the best that I have worked with in my 17 years in this industry.

Clients rave about her determination and persistence to find the exact home they are looking for, and for never allowing them to "settle" for a home or a location that they are not absolutely in love with. A great deal of the transactions I work with Cindy are short sales, and this is where the Vedder team excels. They close them all, and more importantly they close on time. I have complete confidence when I refer a buyer to Cindy and her team that they are in great hands and will receive professional and honest service.

Rich Vandenberg, Loan Officer

Gloria was fantastic!

She was always there for us when we needed her and she made our experience of buying our first home stress free. Thanks Gloria!

David Letko

Trudy was so helpful and took her time to find the right person to rent my condo.

May 9, 2013 Dear Ms.

Gloria O'Brien: We wanted to thank you very much for your kindness in the process of buying our first home.  You have made this process a lot easier to handle.  Your constant support and personal touch has meant the world to us.  We appreciate you following up with the banks and real estate agents to move the process to its final stage.  W are aware that we started the process at a time when houses were not in the market, but you were there making sure we had valid options until we found our dream home!  From the beginning, we felt you were about making sure we were happy, it felt personal! We are now the proud owners of a beautiful home!  We know you will continue helping many others to find their beautiful homes.  They are lucky to have you as an agent.  We wish you the best now and always.  Thank you once again!! Best Regards, Sandra Sologuren

We just want to thank you so much for selling house in Mira Loma.

  First you are the Best Realtor we ever had.  You always kept us updated on everything, like the Escrow and Inspections. If we had any questions about anything, you were more than helpful. Shirley you always made us feel so important. Now when friends ask us about the sell of our house we highly recommend you.  % rate you from 1 to 10  (10 the best), You are a 10 even more higher, because you always go out of your way to help.  Other Realtors we had in the past can't even hold a 1 to you. You are the Best.  Bob and Diane Malone

Working with Aura in the sale of our home was a pure joy.

She is a cordial as well as a knowledgeable realtor. She found a buyer for our house in Moreno Valley in two days of it going on the market and the 30 day escrow was smooth and we closed without incident. She brought us a very highly qualified buyer and that made all the difference as well as the extensive marketing done by her firm. We are very happy with her service and the wonderful experience we had with her on the sale of our home. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants a quality experience in buying or selling a home.

Robin A. Woods

Our experience working with Angela was incredible.

Not only is she incredibly personable, she is very good at her job. Angela listens to what you want and finds it. She is professional, great with communication, patient and really helps you through the process to make the best purchase decision. We highly recommend Angela as an agent.

Eric & Kristin Davenport

Elda Serna went the extra mile to get me what i wanted, I never worried because she was always on top of everything and she fought for me to get me a better deal and i never felt pressured , she simply wanted me to be happy, i would definitely recommend her and i will definitely be using her for my  next home purchase

Enrique Olvera

Gloria was very kind and professional.

Our experience was pleasant and relatively stress free. Thank you.

Amy Covert

I live out of state, so finding the right Real Estate Professional was very important to me.

A mutual party contacted me about Angela and also provided her with my contact information. Within a few minutes, after I was told about her, she reached out to me, (literally within 10 minutes) and  immediately I knew she was the one that I wanted to do the job!! She was easy to talk to, took the time to explain the process, and all of the steps to take in order to list our property and get it sold. All while answering all of my questions along the way. Her knowledge of Real Estate in the area was impressive. She made me feel at ease and I was comfortable discussing all of my options with her. Angela knows her stuff and was very professional and took care of issues as they arose in a timely manner! Due to the Covid Pandemic, we encountered a few bumps in the road but I am pleased to say it's finally done!!! During our closing, it was discovered that there was an issue with some of my documentation which required me to locate the previous owners of our property. I spent 2 days tracking down the people we bought the home from more than 30 years ago. Once I located the previous owners, Angela went above and beyond!! Because I lived outside the State, She immediately took charge and made arrangements to meet the people to have the documentation completed and notarized. She even made arrangements for a mobile notary to be present at the meeting. I cannot express how thankful I am that Angela and I connected. I would "HIGHLY" recommend Angela to any future Buyer or Seller. She knows Real Estate and would definitely be an asset to a Buyer or Seller. Thanks, Angela - "YOU TRULY ARE THE BEST"!!!!

Paula Arklander

She Kept me informed Through the whole process.

Explains what I didn’t understand just very easy to work with.

Lilia Jose

We interview other agents.

She was considerate to our needs and wants. When she was selected she hit the floor running. Sonia protected and kept us informed on every step. She kept us calm when we had issues with the other buyers and agent. She fully represented us like a sister. Never would have made it without her. Thank you Sonia.

Chauncey/MIchael Harvey

Right from the start Gloria did her best to sell my house.

I wasn't expecting for the house to sell quick since our previous agent didn't have luck with it. I felt Gloria had the best interest for my family and me. She new her stuff and was always in contact with me. Overall I was extremely happy  with her services and I truly recommend her if you want your home sold or just looking for your new place to call home.

I have bought and sold a handful of homes and can say this was the easiest and smoothest transaction thus far, because of Angela!

She worked diligently on every aspect of this transaction from start to finish. She does what she says she will do which is rare today. I never had to worry about any issue that arose because of her quick response to solving the problem, promptly and efficiently .She always was available and returned calls promptly. She is very passionate in her endeavor to treat this transaction as if it were her own. Selling and buying a home is very emotional on many levels with so many unpredictability's and yet she was able to navigate all these issues by doing her homework and showing us every possible hurdle and educate us with her knowledge in this industry. Thank you Angela

Tamara Dyer

03/10/2013 Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Murrieta, CA.

Steve's expertise quickly became invaluable as he fought relentlessly for the success of my short sale. He responded effectively when I had questions and kept close contact throughout. He found a reliable buyer very quickly and helped negotiate my tenant agreement. He gave good, simple direction  and handled himself professionally. I would work with him again any day!!  


Monty and Jenni provided five-star service while helping me find a place to live after moving to California from the East Coast!

They went out of their way to do live video tours with me of potential houses while I was under quarantine. They took extra time to get to know what I was looking for and kept a very positive attitude during my search for a new home. Monty and Jenni were super accommodating to my schedule and always kept me informed during the process. They both kept in touch with me as needed or as often as I requested. Monty and Jenni went out of their way to help me find a condo, which has plenty of room for me and my dog! They even followed up with me after the sale was finalized to ensure all my needs were met! In these uncertain times of the health pandemic, you will be in good hands with Monty and Jenni's generous, considerate and attentive real estate service!

Angela worked her tail off for us.

She hustled and never ever made us feel she didn't care or too busy. She is easy going and not pushy. She takes all the time you need to explain details and made the selling of our house painless. If you don't want an uppity, impatient, money hungry, too busy for you agent, we'd highly recommend Angela Brown!! You will feel extremely comfortable and taken care of. Thank you Angela!!

Everyone knows that buying a house can be cumbersome, but let me tell you this was a breeze!

As a previous home owner, in Missouri, I was unfamiliar to the different procedures in California. Aura Suhr was very helpful from day one and reached out to me on multiple occasions prior to my relocation to California. When deadlines were coming up, her and her team was able to assist me every step of the way. There were no lags in communication and there was nothing but professionalism from everyone involved on their end. First Team was the perfect choice and Aura Suhr was PHENOMINAL!

We were very pleased with all aspects of Jan's knowledge and honesty.

She was very quick to understand our needs and chose selected homes that were what we were seeking. Very happy with our experience with Jan and will recommend her to others in the future.

Jesse was very good.

He came our before we listed to give some practical advice on items to prepare the condo. We received four offers at asking in the first week. Process was very smooth.

Just to let all know in this office what a wonderful experience it was to work with Cindy.

She proved to be the AGENT for us. She not only sold our home which was within an estate, but sold it in days and for over asking price. She was always there for any questions or concerns we had about anything. Her wonderful husband also is a gem. He spent an entire day helping us pack a truck for a drive across the USA. back home to Georgia.

Cindy Vedder is a superb agent.

There are numerous positive comments to make about Cindy and her team. She is honestly the first agent who I have ever seen put sweat equity into her job. She follows through on every detail, never allowing a problem to stall the process. Her assistant is fantastic and together you never hear them give some excuse as to why they couldn't get something done "I was in a meeting, I had to pick up my children, I was with another client" --I mean these folks are the DREAM team!!! Effective, efficient and professional on EVERY LEVEL!!! A 21 day escrow with a nightmare situation with our HOA and Cindy got it done. She never complained, she never made us feel bad, she just took care of business. She has a great eye to make your home look amazing, first 3 people who viewed our home all wanted to buy it. She was the best choice for us and anyone wanting a REAL PRO. And she is a really nice women as is the rest of her team. Earns every bit of her commission and so much more! Can you Love your agent? YES! We DO!!!! Highly Recommend!

Angela was absolutely wonderful.

She has a great personality and was available through out the whole process. She’s very knowledgeable about the market and went above and beyond to make sure we closed on the closing date. Even after the closing, she gave out great referrals. I will be sharing my great experience regarding Angela with all of my friends.

Outstanding experience with Aura from the start!

She knows real estate! She made me feel confident and she kept me well-informed throughout the whole process. She had exceptional knowledge of all the areas I was looking to buy. She promptly return phone calls, texts and emails. She was my advocate in negotiating a excellent deal for me. I am very happy with her services and would recommend Aura for anyone’s next home buying or selling needs.

Selling a house in a recession requires strategic planning, diverse marketing options, diligence, patience and hard work.

  Obtaining  a fair value in a Buyer's Market further complicates matters.  I was fortunate to hve been provided the contact information for First Team through our company's  relocation company.  It was through an unsolicited telephone conversation that we decided to allow Ms. Scofield conduct her research and submit a proposal. I received proposals from three different realtors. In reviewing the proposals that included a comprehensive summary, marketing strategy and anticipated sale price on the higher end compared to the other two realtors, the selection process was an easy decision.  One of the realtors included, an individual living on the same street in my neighborhood. The marketing strategy did not include any makeover expenses and included means of highlighting the features of our house. This included minor cleaning and bringing natural light into the house for the viewing process. Within a week, we had an offer, however, the potential buyer had second thoughts. Ms. Scofield pursued "Open House" on three different occasions that included support staff and mortgage lenders at these events.  We were successful in locking in buyer with a forty five day escrow based on my request. There were several obstacles to be overcome prior to the closing and the new lending regulations. Once again, Ms. Scofield was relentless in insuring the timeliness of execution of critical items during this crucial period. In summary, I cannot help but provide high praise for Ms. Scofield's efforts; however, her efforts were substantiated with honesty, fair representation of her client as well as the potential buyer. Her genuine care and overall enjoyment of her work is reflected in not only the final outcome, but throughout the entire experience.  In summary, I would strongly recommend her to my family members, relatives and friends for their real estate needs.

Aura is by far the best realtor I have ever dealt with.

She helped me find the house I was looking for instead of pushing me to get what was available. She was thorough, professional and helped me get everything resolved when others were stalling or not coming through. Aura is by far my first choice for a realtor to recommend to anyone.

Trudy is a true professional.

Her response time and follow through are excellent. She never forgets a detail. Due to our past experience working with Trudy, we contacted her when we were ready to sell one of our rental homes. And we will contact her again when we are ready to sell another rental or even our own personal residence. She got us top dollar, and she did so quickly! We highly recommend Trudy for any real estate transactions!

Liz worked hard to help us find the right home.

She is kind, responsive and super upbeat. We would highly recommend her!

Andrea Garcia

Cindy and her staff displayed wonderful teamwork in helping sell our house three days after the For Sale sign was posted.

Cindy was very competent about asking more money than first posted for the house and avoiding the idea of paying closing costs. She even insisted upon avoiding more costs until the end of the buyers escrow. Cindy showed patience in helping us understand how to sign the "mile high" stack of paperwork properly. Her handyman helped get rid of some unwanted furniture and helped with a minor repair at the house. We can give Cindy a wholehearted recommendation.
