“Lisa had the patience of a saint and understood where we were financially and psychologically in deciding to move to a new area. We knew what we wanted, and she made us feel as our wishes were paramount. Without her guidance, I'm not sure we would have taken the big step to move. Even after the purchase of our new home, Lis…a continued to answer questions and check in to see how things were progressing. We already have recommended her to friends who may be interested in relocating to Laguna Woods. Lisa is the best”Read More ▾

“I was in a tough situation a couple months back and Tanya took on the challenge of getting me stabalized and focused so that I could move forward in my life.
She showed tremendous patience and understanding as she had to deal with my lack of knowledge regarding today's technology and how to communicate.
Tanya always ended our co…nversations with positive comments and "thumbs up" that would keep my spirits lifted.
Evenafter the sale has been completed she has stressed that she is available for any questions I may have.
A couple months ago Tanya was my real estate agent. Now I consider Tanya to be my Friend and someone that I can rely on for so much more than real estate”Read More ▾

C-21 Rainbow Realty… is an excellent firm. They are well located in Laguna Woods next to the escrow company I used. Their staff was very helpful on several occasions. The sale was completed without any problems.

She truly went up and beyond the call of duty with all her responsibities. I wish everyone we dealt with was like her and could immediately get our trust and respect.

We love her.

“Lisa is the consummate broker, plus she has the gift of gentleness and understanding. This is so important when buying a home. Emotions can sometimes overwhelm a person but Lisa keeps the focus on the "right" home for her client.
Lisa is the best broker we have ever met and worked with throughout the buying process.”
“Tina Chao is a fantastic broker. She has all the qualities one would want in a broker. She is kind, patient, pays attention to details and knows Laguna Woods like the back of her hand. She made purchasing our condo easy.”
“Lisa Mills was, by far, the very best real estate agent I have ever worked with. I chose her because she was extremely familiar with Laguna Woods Village, which turned out to be critical for a smooth process. Like many others, I was selling my parents’ home after they both passed away, and was doing it from out-of-state. When L…isa and I first spoke, she said, “It’s my job to make this easy for you to do all of this without having to fly into California.” She was a woman of her word. Not only did she handle all of the typical tasks an agent takes on, but she also arranged for an electrician and handyman to do some work necessary for the sale. When we had to get “after-the-fact” permits from the HOA and the town, she went to those offices on my behalf and filed all the necessary paperwork. She was in constant touch – phone, text, and/or email, so I always knew what was going on. She was kind, patient, and fun to talk to – if she got frustrated, she surely didn’t show it. In a community like Laguna Woods Village, it’s so important for the agent to understand the HOA rules and be able to help her client through the inspections and required forms completion. Because Lisa knew the rules, she was able to guide me, making it all seem so simple. I would have been lost without her. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone selling (or buying!) a home in the Village”Read More ▾
“Beth was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the idiosyncrasies of Laguna Woods and how to get through the bureaucracy of the HOA. Her communication was excellent and she was very proactive.
Cannot say enough good things about Beth.”
