I am a California native, from Orange County, having grown up in beautiful Dana Point. I have been servicing the coastal communities of Orange County and San Diego for the past 12 years in both residential and commercial ownership and leasing.
I am also licensed in Hawaii, working specifically on the island of Maui, where I am fortunate enough to spend a generous amount of time, being an island girl, at heart.
The past 9 years (2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and, 2021) I have been the recipient of Orange Coast Magazine's, Select Real Estate Agent award, which recognizes agents who provide Exceptional Service and Overall Satisfaction, as distinguished by their clients. I very much enjoy working with people and love helping my clients find their "Dream Home".
I worked with Shannon in March-April of 2014. My wife and I had sold our house as part of our separation and I was looking to rent a house in Laguna Niguel. The fact that my credit had been ruined, my work schedule was very restrictive and that I had only a few weeks before the closing of escrow (and move out date) from my former house made the situation pretty tricky. Shannon worked with me throughout the process, she found homes that met my criteria; worked with property owners to gauge and figure out how to get me into a lease and she kept me updated on a regular basis. Ultimately she got me into a great place that met my criteria. She really...— Eric Jones
Sandy and Rich are awesome to work with. We had to fix up the house we were selling prior to putting it on the market. They were very active with helping us make wise decisions to get the best price for our property. When we finally listed the house, it not only sold on the day it was listed, but for $50,000 above asking price! Sandy and Rich are the Best Realtors in town!!!— Sylvia H.
We reviewed numerous real estate agents; in person and online. We chose Shelly based on a well put together website, her knowledge of the market and area, and her communication skills. Shelly laid out her plan while listening to our input. This plan, with her tremendous marketing skills, allowed us to get multiple offers and sold our property within 10 days. Shelly was the perfect choice for us.— 4emery8
Shelly Reyland is my Rockstar realtor! She got the job done and in the most professional way. The sale of our house was not a simple one. During the process we had three different buyers. This was during the start of the pandemic and for one reason or other buyers could not get across the finish line. This never deterred Shelly. She always had creative ideas for us. She always went above and beyond with her attention to details and follow through. When she told you, she would handle something not only did she handle it, but she communicated with us during the process. We always knew right where things stood. We had moved out of state and left the ho...— Laurie
Sandy and Rich were awesome from start to finish. At our first meeting they addressed every concern and gave us realistic advise on how to prepare our property to maximize the value without wasting money on upgrades that would not yield a return. At every step of the process there was clear communication and follow through. Always pleasant to deal with and always delivered. No surprises, no drama, not a single glitch. Thank you Sandy and Rich! You are total pros and I will be recommending you to all of my friends and family!— Glen M.
Carole made the experience of selling my home during an emotional and stressful time in my life a positive experience. Words can't express my gratitude. She did everything right!— Sandy Walker
Jimmy Reed and Lel Huddleston brought experience and strategy that helped me prepare and sell my Mission Viejo condo quickly and more than I thought was possible. They assisted by providing solid professionals who assisted in getting the property ready and staged. Once this was completed, they put together a fantastic marketing plan that drove many offers to review. They then used their experience and industry connections to filter down the offers to select the best one. They did all of this in incredible time while maintaining great communication that really put me at ease. What is great about the Reed team is that they have a great team to suppo...— Timothy Taylor
My husband and I could not have imagined an easier home buying process, thanks to Darren and Haley at the Reed Team. As first time homebuyers, the process seemed very daunting. However, Darren and Haley were there every step of the way. They truly made this the most enjoyable experience and to top it off, our first offer was accepted! That was something we never expected and now have our dream home. We would not be in this position without the guidance and support from both Darren and Haley. I’d recommend them to anyone in the market for a house. Thanks again Darren and Haley!— Heidi Hemsley
Very highly recommend Holly!! She helped me find a dream home! The most important thing abut Holly is that she treats you like you are her most important client! She cares about you like she would her own family. She always has time for your concerns, questions, and ideas. She's very dedicated, knowledgeable and professional. She is one of the best realtors I've ever worked with through almost 10 real estate dealings and always responded promptly, and gave me the attention and time you'd expect from a top notch professional. Very skilled at her job, with super people skills, so important when working with other real estate agents and all th...— cswills5
During my first conversation with Jim, I knew right away that he'd be the perfect agent for me to work with as I prepared to buy my first home. His down-to-earth demeanor made him instantly relatable and not once did I ever feel like he was in it just for the sale. At the end of the day, Jim's primary focus was to make sure we could land a house that I was truly happy with, which meant a lot to me. Jim's relatability also went over quite well with listing agents as he often developed strong rapport with them very quickly. This ensured a smooth flow of communication between parties which is (as I learned) crucial for putting together an enticing offe...— N. Okereke
Holly helped me buy a home in Irvine, California in a very competitive market. She guided us through the whole process and answered all my questions. She made herself available whenever I needed her. I am excited about my new home in an excellent school district for my daughter. I am happy to enjoy this new home for many years to come. I appreciate Holly with all her knowledge and experience to help me through the whole process. I recommend her to help anyone with buying or selling real estate.— mqianlive
We closed (buyer) in March of 2022 and we could not be happier with the service of Jim Duenas. In this market, you need an agent who knows the area, knows the process, and understands what its going to take for you to score the home you want. I've been in the mortgage business for 18 years, and I've been in contact with hundredsd of realtors and you cannot go wrong using Jim. From the follow up to follow through Jim never dropped the ball. After sending a few offers we scored a home we are extremely happy with. Moreover you will enjoy the candor and positivity he brings to what is usually a very stressful process.— Carlos D.
I was so happy with Holly and the service that she provided to sell my condo. I am so appreciative of all her efforts as she had to sell my place twice. The first time it fell out of escrow the day before we were supposed to close. And we got right back in escrow and she did great job finishing it up. I’m so thankful to her and she even took me out to dinner to celebrate and give me a lovely gift. I highly recommend her.— elementselegance7
Jim found us a home that isn’t necessary what we were thinking of but is exactly what we hoped for. This is exceptional service and an example of someone who go above and beyond for his client. He guided us through the entire process from touring listings, negotiating with the seller, set up a trusted house inspector, referring a lender with the best available rate/program, all of the piles of paperwork in between. This is not something we could had done without Jim. People says that a home is the foundation of our lives. We are very thankful to Jim for providing to us such a lovely home to build our family in.— PhongHuynh99
It was an awesome experience to work with Nick. This is the first property that I ever got so I need a lot of education. Nick and Lily guided me through all the steps and taught me a lot of details during the process. Nick is very patient, responsive, and reliable. He got all my questions answered professionally and promptly. He understood my husband and my needs and picked quality properties. Nick is very knowledgeable of all local areas and gave us detailed analyses of the pros and cons for each property. Thanks to Nick and Lily, we found our favorite house and signed a counter offer within a week. I am very surprised about Nick's negotiation skil...— Buyer
I feel truly blessed that I found Karen Conley. Not all real estate agents are alike. Karen is one that should be commended for the work that she does. She honestly works to be of service to people, and she will tell you that this is her purpose. Karen has many years of experience and her expertise leads to good advice, excellent timing, and follow-through. She is very hardworking and takes care of all the details. To be honest, after feeling quite discouraged with our first Realtor®, we started working with Karen and our house got a full price offer and closed in less than 30 days. You can’t ask for much more than that. Here’s a big shout-out to Ka...— Seller
We met Steve 2 years prior to selling our property. He became a good friend and neighbor. We stayed in touch and when Steve knew the right time to sell our property was he let us know. He was confident from the start at what price he could get for us. He did not disappoint. Not only did he get our price but the entire process what as smooth and as quickly as anyone could have hoped for. His office and team of escrow people were very professional and truly a pleasure to help us thru. I would highly recommend Steve as your Realtor®.— Seller
Steve was very professional and a great real estate agent to work with. He guided us through the process and we followed his expert counsel on receiving the best price for our home. It sold within 6 days of listing and we received our price. Every step of the selling transaction was done through Docusign and gave us time to read through each document on our own time. We even used a virtual staging company that showcased our home on the internet. It was very cost-effective. Again, we highly recommend Steve Crowley.— Gary & Sharon V.
Silvia was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable when it came to assisting us in the purchase of a home for our son. She guided us every step of the way, which eliminated a lot of the stress we had experienced with a prior Realtor®. Thanks, Silvia, you are to be commended for your expertise and your willingness to answer all of the many questions and to make us feel more relaxed, in this trying process. Thank you so much.— Marleen B.
Karen is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and responsible. I first met and purchased a home represented as the agent a couple of years ago. When we had a home to sell we immediately contacted Karen. Working with Karen as a buyer and as a seller was extremely easy and all escrows closed on time with no difficulties. It really takes a knowledgeable and detailed agent to guide the sales processes from start to finish.— Megan J.
I cannot recommend Silvia Berlin and Berlin team homes highly enough. She is a master negotiator, extremely knowledgable in her field, organized, and quick to reply. She always maintains a professional demeanor and she truly went above and beyond to make my first-time home buying experience seamless. Anyone looking to purchase or sell property in South Orange County should absolutely get in touch with Silvia.— Carly A.
Nick is a true professional and exudes the best qualities in an agent. He's proactive, communicative, and looks out for his client's best interests at all times. Nick has helped my family purchase two homes and sell one. From both sides, I've seen his expertise in negotiating, marketing, and real estate law in California. I highly recommend his services and will be using him again in the future.— Ezio B.
Can't say enough good things about Steve. My wife and I were looking for a second home in SC and met Steve at an open house. We liked the property and Steve. He did a great job handling every phase, from offer to recording. My wife and I both, always got the feeling like Steve cared and had our best interest in mind, as well as the sellers. We'll be using Steve again in the future.— Buyer
Very glad we signed up with Karen Conley as our listing agent. Throughout the process, she presented valuable information to help us decide the best ways to prepare our property for sale, set a price based on her knowledge of the market, and negotiate effectively with prospective buyers. She is skillful, honest, and straightforward. We trusted her completely.— Seller
Silvia was amazing. Extremely responsive, helpful, knowledgeable. She helped me through the whole process, from entering escrow to closing. She took the time to answer all my questions, make sure I was working through the process properly, and was so kind and sweet the entire time. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their Realtor®.— Buyer
Nick and his team were fantastic. I was selling my mother's condo from a distance and Nick made the process seamless and he exceeded my expectations. Any questions were answered promptly and with the details necessary to make informed decisions. I would highly recommend Nick for both selling and purchasing.— Seller
Nick was A+. As first-time home buyers, he really helped us navigate the whole home buying process and find some great places to look at. We could always rely on him to answer our questions and be quick to respond. We did not think we would be able to score a condo in this area but Nick made it happen.— Buyer
So far Nick has helped us to buy 2 homes and sell 1 with flawless results. Nick is fast, has an intuitive sense of judgment, and always has a backup plan for when things don't go as planned. Nick will treat you with respect, and make sure decisions are being made in your best interest.— Buyer
We have used Silvia when both buying and selling a home and have had amazing experiences both times. Throughout the process, Silvia’s communication and attention to personal details have been top-notch. I would recommend Silvia to anyone who asks,— Nicki M.
We have both bought and sold a property with Steve. Steve and his team are very knowledgeable and professional in their approach. We have enjoyed working with Steve and his team and recommend them without reservation.— Paul & Rebecca
Found us the perfect home to rent and the best price we could have imagined and just a walk down the beach. Best Realtor® ever friendly, fast, and goes above and beyond for his clients.— Buyer
Karen is the go-to Realtor® in the Orange County area. She knows the areas and has been very helpful in finding the right home and the right service providers for all our needs.— Seller
So thankful we had Karen Conley as our agent. She worked hard and made each step of the process so easy for us. We would recommend Karen for any of your real estate needs.— Jenn R.
