Select An Agent and Price

Why Should You Choose Our Professionals?

You may opt to sell your property independently. There are many excellent reasons, however, why you should choose us to assist you in this important undertaking. We will ensure that you maximize your opportunities in the current real estate market. With our extensive contact networks that we have developed through the many national and international organizations, of which we are members, as well as our current and past clients, we will employ the most effective marketing and advertising strategies for your property. We will also guide you through the complicated paperwork involved, from the initial agreement to the final documents.

What To Look For In An Agent.

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when looking for a listing agent:

1. Education. The most important factor in choosing a real estate professional is their education in the real estate industry. Our professionals have advanced training and education, allowing them to be among the top agents in the world and earning prestigious designations in the various fields of real estate.

2. Experience and Expertise. You want a full-time agent who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past?

3. Availability and Commitment. Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you constantly? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your agent available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?

4. Rapport. Does your agent take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs? Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along.

What Is Your Property Worth?

Without a professional agent, most independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their property. You can avoid this pitfall by consulting with an experienced real estate listing agent.

Testimonials

"Dorit and Joel Cooper are excellent Real Estate brokers. They listened to our needs and worked with us tirelessly for over a year to find the perfect home for our family. They helped us re-envision homes that needed updating and they spent hours guiding us, as first time home buyers, to make the right decision. While getting to know our growing family, Dorit and Joel helped us navigate the home search process to incorporate the needs of all of our family members. They were always available to answer questions and worked around our crazy schedule to arrange viewings. The end result is that WE LOVE OUR HOME!" - Eitan & Cassie W. -

"We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your great efforts in working out everything beautifully and timely with our new home! Your professionalism and willing to go above and beyond to help truly warmed our hearts! We felt so lucky to have the opportunity to work with you on this project, and we certainly want to work with you in the future. We have not seen anyone who could be this responsive, attentive, professional, resourceful and helpful like you. You left a great impression onto us. We cannot thank you enough for what you did for us. " - Juming Z. & Su C. -

"I cannot rave enough about the experience of working with Joel and Dorit to buy a home in Encino. They were incredible business partners, very respectful of our needs and wishes, unbelievably organized and professional, and willing to get down into the weeds on anything- even if it was not a part of the job. I will definitely use them again in the future." - Bryan S. & Bethany S. -

"Joel was amazing to work with to buy a home. He was able to get me in to see homes immediately, and was extremely responsive when I called or emailed. I was able to find a home within two-three months and when the home of my choice fell through Joel was there to find other options. I love my home, and would use Joel again for any future purchases I do in the future. I recommend him to all my friends." - Miriam G. -

"Joel is a broker of great integrity. His knowledge of the market is very good and he was always available to us during the buying process. He worked very hard for us and I would highly recommend him." - Brian K. -

"Joel and Dorit are a powerhouse team -- pleasant to work with and very thorough. They went out of their way to not only make sure I found what I wanted in the price point I wanted, but they made sure I understood what my options were and walked me carefully through each stage of the process. I'm a first time homebuyer who was referred to them by a friend who also had a great experience with them buying his first home. I had an idea of what area of the city I wanted, generally the kind of place I wanted, what I thought I could afford. Right away, in our first meeting, they had pulled comprehensive market reports on the neighborhoods I was targeting as well as nearby neighborhoods. I got a bird's eye view of what inventory was like, how much places in the last year sold for, etc. When I was ready to begin searching, they were happy to let me set the tempo. How many listings do I want to receive? How many places would I like to see each week so I get a good sense of what's available without becoming overwhelmed? Given that I was kind of learning as I went, this was exactly what I was looking for in an agent. Someone very knowledgable about the marketplace, equally concerned with my satisfaction and enjoyment of the search as they were with closing a deal. When it came to making offers, Joel went out of his way to make himself available to what worked best with my schedule. He was helpful in my search for a broker, navigating the tricks that selling agents and developers try to get away with, and gave me perspective on the big picture. I have already began referring Joel and Dorit more clients and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again when I'm ready for the next stage of home ownership." - Theo T. -

"As a first-time homebuyer I had no idea what to look for in a realtor. Joel Cooper made buying a home painless and in some ways fun. Throughout the entire process of picking out a home and signing paperwork Mr. Cooper definitely made me feel as if I was always in the drivers seat. He was also more than happy to give his professional option whenever I wasn't sure of something. Joel Cooper has all the characteristics of a great realtor. He is honest, determined and most import VERY PUNCTUAL. I had worked with 3 realtors before I found Mr. Cooper and there is nothing more frustrating than waiting at a home you are interested in buying and your realtor calls you and says, "I'm on my way". I highly recommend Joel Cooper when deciding on a realtor and I will definitely request his services again when the time comes to either buy another home or sell my current one. " - Felipe A. -
