“My very first impression of Lisa Mills was excellent. Very professional, knowledgeable, and always upfront. In our initial meeting, I asked pretty blunt questions. She didn't hestitate in answering them. I didn't bother meeting other brokers. That's how strong impression she left. It was wonderful working with her. She wal ked me through the sale of my mother's place and kept me informed along the way. I was surprised how fast it sold! I would recommend Lisa to anyone” Read More ▾

“Lisa is an amazing agent, and we give her the highest possible recommendation. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable about the local area, and incredibly helpful. Whenever we needed to ask a question, she responded immediately and followed up until we had an answer. She gave referrals and helped oversee arrangements for a n electrician, painters, carpet installer, and plumber as we were selling remotely and could not be onsite ourselves. She walked us through a delayed escrow - through the fault of the buyer - and kept on top of the issues with the buyer. On top of that, she is kind, friendly, and personable. Working with her was a pleasure, and we highly recommend” Read More ▾

“Kitty always listened to us and used her extensive experience of Laguna Woods to introduce us to all the aspects we needed to review before purchasing a home in this community. Our purchasing process took several months because we were initially not located in California. However, Kitty kept working patiently with us to find the home we were looking for. Even when the initial offers did not succeed, we kept moving on. After the sales, Kitty (and Amir) were very supportive with regard to all aspects of us settling into our new community and home. We were glad and fortunate to have Kitty on our team, and we found the right home for us” Read More ▾

“It was a pleasure working with Lisa Mills in selling my mother"s home following her death. Lisa was working with a very difficult family situation and handled everything in a very professional yet friendly way!!

She knew exactly what the a ssociation required and was able to hold my hand through the process and get everything completed with very little stress for me!! Everything from how Lisa carried herself to the cleaniness of her office were top notch! I cannot say praise Lisa enough for her overall excellent job!

She has been so helpful in all areas - listening to my ideas, considering my needs, helping with logistics and repairs when I couldn't be home (or even when I was for support), and gener ally being an overall kind and caring human being. I met Tanya when she was selling a neighbor's home in 2019. My neighbor had dementia and Tanya was so patient and careful with her and sold her house quickly. I was so impressed with her that I asked her to help me sell my home. I'm so glad I did. Tanya met expectations in every way” Read More ▾

Philip Ross

“We used Lisa Mills to sell the Laguna Woods Village residence of my mother who had recently passed away. (We had previously also successfully used Lisa's services to sell my deceased mother-in-law's home a year earlier.). Lisa is an excellent broker. She came up with a sales plan and approach that resulted in our selling my mom' s place for far more than I ever expected we would. Lisa was totally hands-on throughout the process from beginning to end, sheparding the prospective sale to successful completion. She was very communicative at all times, letting us know exactly what to expect and what the next steps would be. We were located out of the area, and Lisa handled everything locally that needed to be done to get the residence sold, from arranging any necessary cleaning and repairs, to unwanted personal property removal. Lisa made the entire sale process extremely easy for us. I recommend, as highly as I can, Lisa Mills' services. In a word, Lisa is great!” Read More ▾

“My rental/lease search and experience was amazing from start to finish. Another realtor from a different agency had given up on my specific needs and told me it wasn't going to happen. Holly never gave up and instead dug in harder. Holly found the absolute perfect place for me. There were some hurdles along the way which Holly n avigated with ease. I was kept informed every step of the way. You know you're working with a true professional when it seems as though everything falls into place with ease. That sense of ease is a true reflection of the skill, knowledge and experience of someone who knows their business inside and out. Even after the agreement was signed Holly provided a step by step guide to the ins and outs of becoming acclimated to my new home and community. I still refer to that guide on a regular basis. I highly recommend Holly” Read More ▾

“I like Laguna Woods. Buying a property in it, though, turned out to be a conundrum. The information I received was very confusing. Then I found Tina Chao. Realizing that I was totally ignorant about buying a co-op unit, Tina very patiently explained to me the requirements and the procedures, even before I became her client. As my agent, she paid a lot of attention to details, and was more concerned about the security of my personal information and my interest as a buyer than I was. She also provided a lot of helpful information about the neighborhood: where to shop, to eat, to have fun, what available services I would find useful and what problems I should watch out for as a new resident. I am very grateful for Tina’s involvement in my purchase, and have patted myself on the back a couple of times for making the right decision to call her. Knowledgeable, responsive and responsible, I would recommend Tina to anyone interested in buying a property in this city” Read More ▾

She understands the nuances of the Laguna Woods real estat e market and helped develop a competitive pricing strategy that allowed me to sell quickly.
