“This is the fourth transaction I’ve done with Tanya and would never think of using anyone else. She’s the best and I always know I’m in good hands. She’s an expert in everything Laguna Woods and she makes the whole experience easy and fun!
Everything is always taken care of in a timely manner. I never have to worry.
Century… 21 is the best”Read More ▾
“We met Susan Walters when we were searching for a seasonal rental in 2016. At the time we made clear that we were not ready to purchase, but she remained helpful in securing seasonal rentals in 2017, 2018 and 2019. We particularly appreciated that she addressed our buying questions, even though it was far in advance of our dec…ision to finally buy a property.
In the buying process she remained ever helpful, and it is worth noting that we live out-of-state and finalized the purchase without ever seeing the property in-person. At one critical point in the buying process, circumstances prevented Susan from being locally available and she engaged a business partner on our behalf that permitted the buying process to go forward seamlessly.
I think there is one more property purchase in our future in Susan's market. We hold Susan in high personal and professional regard and will undoubtedly ask her to guide us through that purchase process as well”Read More ▾
“Rosemarie Moriarty has been the agent we have chosen to represent us in the sale and purchase of a number of Laguna Woods properties for our family members and ourselves, for many years. Her professionalism, competence, knowledge of the Laguna Woods market and regulations, and calm, helpful demeanor have been outstanding.
Ev…ery characteristic listed in the survey above, regarding character and personality, fall into the excellent category for Rosemarie Moriarty, in our dealings with her.
We would like to comment on the performance of two other key players in the sale and purchase of our properties. The first is Lori Wurzel, Branch Manager and Sr, Escrow Officer for Granite Escrow. It is evident to us that Lori is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in her work. She expedited our escrow in a timely fashion, and with a personable and likable manner. The other key player was Victoria Selley; Rosemarie's co-agent. Vicky stood in for Rosemarie when needed, and did a great job”Read More ▾
“Melanie Callahan was friendly and helpful and yet extremely professional and competent.

“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 ▾

“Look no further, Chris Framan will get the job done. Listen to him and list your property with him. We purchased the home for my wife's parents and owned it for 5 years. I made the mistake of listing the property for 5 miserable months with a well known competitor. Desperate, I asked my trusted escrow officer who she would r…ecommend. She said Chris Framan. He had a ratified offer in 24 hours of hitting MLS and he guided it to a successful closing without further concessions.
I needed an excellent agent to steer my property to its final disposition, while I was miles and hours away, and he did the job. I could have saved 5 months of HOA dues while remaining vacant by choosing him in the first place and not being fooled by his know nothing, do nothing, competitors”Read More ▾

And her escrow is right next door- so convenient.She helped me buy this property a few years ago and now she just sold it so I can say she is an outstanding agent for both sides! Immediately after I asked her to list it, I was amazed at how efficiently she got the whole campaign going-flyers, open houses, youtube tour... she gave excellent advice
every step of the way and I had total confidence that she was
managing the sale superbly- I was in great hands!

“Awareness of issues unique to the Laguna Woods community

“Lisa sold my property in Laguna Woods Village during the COVID lockdown. A very challenging time to be selling. She helped me with so many details that would have required me to drive over an hour each way if I'd had to handle them myself.

“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 ▾

“Susan Walters is an exceptional real estate agent!! When we talked with another agent who used to serve this area, Susan was THE realtor he recommended to help us. She stayed on top of all details throughout the buying process, and we were particularly impressed by her consistent timely communications with us as out-of-state buy…ers. Whenever we needed her, she was there! She was our local representative in every way, coordinating not only with the inspector, sellers' agent and title company, but she also coordinated with our daughter, who lives an hour away and was involved in helping us find the property. She was available whenever we or our daughter had questions or needed information. She did a video-chat walk thru a couple times for us at our request and was very helpful in communicating with the sellers' agent, which in our case really helped keep the purchase on track. Susan has a great personality and is very likeable and kind, which is important when negotiating with other folks. We think she is awesome, and if you choose to use her as your real agent, you'll not be disappointed!! Can't recommend her strongly enough!”Read More ▾
