Where do I begin...??
My wife and I had less then satisfactory experiences with agents in the past, so we made sure to do our homework this time around when it came to selling our condo on the Westside. ?We met and talked to about a half dozen different agents before we decided to go with Rory and his team.
We ultimately decided to go with Rory for many reasons. ?One was I felt the other realtors we talked to just wanted to make a quick sell and valued our place pretty low. ?Rory was able to see the real value and understood ?how prospective buyers would potentially view it (location, layout, etc.). ?In the end, we ended up selling for 10% more than what any of the other agents wanted to list it for.
Another reason we went with Rory is that he came with his team. ?He, Kristian, and Ashley make the ultimate real estate group. ?They all work so well together and function as a team, one thing a lot of other agents were lacking.?
Also, Rory has 20 years in the business. ?He was raised on the Westside and knows the market like none other. ?You\'ll be hard pressed to find anyone with the experience and knowledge about the Westside like Rory.
The actual process of selling our home went smoothly. ?As anyone who has sold a home can attest to, selling a home is a lot of work. ?Rory and Kristian were consummate professionals throughout the entire process, helping us every single step of the way. ?They were always open to working around our schedule and were sensitive to the fact that we still had our lives to live during the open houses and viewings.?
In the end, we had over 8 offers within a couple days of our open house. ?And only a week after we listed, we accepted an offer for more than our listed price. ?This truly speaks volumes about the \"Results\" Rory and his team can achieve.
Rory and Kristian helped us purchase our home in Cheviot Hills a few years ago. Their knowledge and expertise made it possible for us to find our dream home and close escrow quickly and efficiently. In addition, they continue to follow up with valuable advice and assistance for maintaining and improving our home. I highly recommend Rory and Kristian to anyone seeking real estate assistance in West Los Angeles.
My wife and I recently purchased our first home in Cheviot Hills. Rory and his team of Kristian Bonk and Ashley were representing the seller. Much to our surprise, when we first sat down with Rory in his office to make an offer to the owners, he actually advised my wife and I to take the weekend and reconsider whether a home purchase made "sense" for our family at this time, and if we truly wanted this particular house. They took the time to learn about our family, our current and anticipated future plans, as well as our financial picture. This, to me, demonstrated the high level of integrity that his group possesses. I think more agents than not would have been pushing for us to simply sign the offer letter, but instead they made sure this was in our best interests, and that my wife and I were not pressured into making such a difficult decision.
Obtaining financing was not easy, to say the least. But throughout the whole process, they continually checked in with us, as well as our lender, and helped to keep the seller comfortable with the whole process, especially after it took a few days longer than the original escrow to even close financing.
After we had moved in, and their commission had already been payed, we had some issues with maintenance and one of the appliances. Kristian called the home warranty company, arranged for the contractors to come out, and even stayed at our house while the work was being done, since my wife nor I could be there due to scheduling concerns.
The Results realty group are true professionals, and our experience with them was excellent. They have strong ties to the community, and an in depth knowledge of the local market.
We had already secured a buyer for our home in Cheviot Hills before hiring an agent. We then had to make the decision of how to handle the paperwork and details. We thought of hiring a real estate attorney, but decided an agent who is accustomed to the day to day details might be a better idea. Thank goodness we made that decision and Rory and Kristian were just the right guys to manage the whole process for us.
We didn't even know how important that decision was until escrow closed. To the very end there was nothing Rory and Kristian couldn't handle (including clearing the trash our movers left behind minutes before the walk through with our buyers). We had no idea how valuable they would be to us in the process and can't thank them enough for their professionalism and anticipation of every issue each step of the way!
Rory was amazing during every aspect of our housing search, negotiations, and closing. We were able to get our dream house at much less than the asking price. And, he even helped us find a gardener and a pool company. Rory and his team were very responsive, kind, knowledgable, and helpful throughout the process. Couldn't recommend him/them more.
Today we closed on the sale of our late parents' home. While it was an emotional process -- taking 2 years for us to go through all the memories and items inside the home -- once we made the decision to sell, it was incredibly smooth and easy because of Rory and Kristian Bonk. They know this area (near Century City/Beverlywood) inside out, pricing and staging the house perfectly. With multiple bids, we were able to get the asking price! And that wasn't all -- their suggestions for movers, estate sale people, etc., were all pitch perfect! I would HIGHLY recommend Rory and Kristian to anyone needing top brokers. They are our heroes!!!
Rory Posin and Kristian represented me in selling my home in Cheviot Hills. I was blown away with every aspect of his their handling of the sale. Fantastic job. Kristian helped stage the house to show properly, including fixing up a few things. Rory gave excellent advice regarding pricing and negotiations. The process was very smooth and very fast. I would definitely use him again.
I met Rory in 2004 when I moved to LA; he represented the builder/seller on a home which I purchased. Throughout that process, he and Kristian were very professional even though they represented the other side in that transaction.
In mid 2011, I decided to sell my home, in a very tough market environment. I listed the home with Rory. In this difficult market, Rory did a great job of marketing my home and always gave me unbiased local, Cheviot Hills specific market insight. My home sale closed in February, 2012 after a lengthy escrow process.
I consider Rory a consummate professional and highly recommend Rory and Kristian. I have purchased about 15 homes in my career and would consider Rory the most competent, professional realtor that I have dealt with.
I have bought and sold 2 houses on the Westside of LA and no one knows and understands the area better than Rory. He is a consumate professional who has a rare combination of skills in real estate arena - hard working, informed, driven for success but with an uncanny ability to listen to your needs and then provide advice with sensitivity and honesty. We used Rory's services when we bought our home over 8 years ago and again when we decided to sell a few months ago. Rory and his team (especially Kristian) provided flawless service and made both experiences actually enjoyable - another rarity in the real estate arena. The best recommendation I could give is that if ever I (or any of my family) were to buy or sell on the Westside again I would not talk to anyone other than Rory Posin! The Taylors
Rory Posin is an institution in the West Los Angeles real estate market. I have seen his sign around for 25+ years and I finally had a chance to work with him. He recently sold our house and helped us purchase a new one a short time later. Without a doubt his entire operation is 100% first class. Every detail was covered perfectly. His marketing is over the top spectacular. Simply put, you can't find a better realtor on the west side. Thank you Rory, Kristian and Emory for your incredible work. You guys are the best in the business!
Rory helped us find and buy our first home in Cheviot Hills in 1999 -- we were one of several bidders for a home that sold in 24 hours and he led us through the process perfectly. When it came time to buy a larger home to accommodate our growing family, Rory was on the case. He understood our needs, found the perfect home for us, and helped us stage and sell our house for a good price. Rory and Kristian make a great team, and no one knows the Cheviot area better. We have recommended Rory to many friends who are now happily living in Cheviot.
Top notch experience with our home purchase! We found Rory to be very professional. Would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home in the Cheviot Hills area.
Rory Posin was the agent for the seller when I bought my house. I recently sold and Rory was the agent I called. He and Kristian Bonk were able to manage a difficult process and deliver amazing results that I didn't expect. They are professionals who know the residential real estate business and care about their clients. I've dealt with a lot of real estate agents and can say that these are the guys I will call first.
Rory Posin is Cheviot Hills. I've seen him at the local restaurants eating breakfast for the last 13 years.
Rory is the consummate real estate pro. He knows his stuff. He sold our house and it came off without a hitch.
Rory sold our home quickly in what was obviously a tough market environment. We even made a little money off of a 2005 purchase, which is pretty rare! If you are selling in Cheviot Hills, hire him so your buyer doesn't first!
