“She has walked the Camino de Santiago as a pilgrim, which informs me that she has the ability to persevere in the face of difficulties, and the will power to focus and stay on task.
She’s very professional in knowing how to show properties remotely to an out of towner. She is very quick and responsive. She follows up. She’s res…pectful. You may think these are basic traits of every realtor, but unfortunately they are not.

Through the entire process of selling our place.... Lisa Mills was a very easy person to work with. She took the time to get to know our needs & expectations. She was very prompt at responding to any questions via phone calls or text & was most helpful in
co-ordinating whatever necessary repair work was needed. She was considerate of our views & had much to offer with her experience regarding the operations of Laguna Woods Village.

“I live 1600 miles from the property Chris was selling for us. I had complete confidence in his handling of the sale including negotiations and details about showing, inspections and especially the unique requirements of Leisure World.
We have worked with eight realtors over the years -- I was in the Air Force so we moved a lot…. Our experience with Chis was clearly one of the best if not the best given how far away we were from the property. I don't know how we would have done it without him.
Our property had some difficult issues associated with it that involved structural and geological inspections. At any point our buyer might have been scared off the sale. I believe it was Chris' skill in handling the situation that saved the sale in the end. I believe we were very fortunate to have him representing us. I cannot imagine finding anyone better”Read More ▾

“Patricia Eckard is a consummate professional who did an amazing job of getting us the best selling price for a home inhabited for over 50 years. As the seller, my Mom, had to move into assisted living precipitously in another part of the state before the home could be listed, Patricia took care of many crucial details regarding …readying the property for listing. This included finding painters, stager, termite company, and meeting them for work, and even did some repairs and landscaping herself. She worked seamlessly with someone hired to help clean out our family home too. What a treasure to a family in need of extra help during a difficult time AND all during a pandemic! She will go the extra mile for her clients. We will be ever grateful for her outstanding work!! Our home sold for over asking price in less than two weeks!!
Patricia is truly all one could hope for in a realtor and more: professional, responsive, efficient, creative, connected to other needed vendors to get properties ready for listing, compassionate, patient, knowledgeable....the BEST”Read More ▾

And he is a closer!”
“Alice Lin made the whole process of buying our retirement home a very pleasant process. We were referred to Alice because another agent we had previously met was out of the office and not currently taking clients. Alice Lin came off the bench and hit a Grand Slam Home run! She did not just show us the property we were interested… in but also some comparable ones as well. This gave us a better view of what the market currently was like at Laguna Woods. Alice Lin made us feel like we were her only clients. She was very responsive and always returned our calls within a few minutes. Even when I called her on one of my many Sunday morning (Just have to have an answer) calls. She guided us through the unique process of a purchase at Laguna Woods. She kept us calm during the whole process and had great patience with us. Alice Lin is a great asset for Rainbow Realty and we absolutely will refer her to any of our friends who may be looking for a home.
