I wanted to reflect and applaud the superb service that rick Ojeda, Nick Segal, Caroline Berry and their Team provided for me in the sale of my residential home. Well prior to being marketed there were many issues that needed to be handled in the home as it was rather jaded and had not gone under any form of reparation work for at least 15 years. Rick, in particular took on the responsibility for helping me arrange the builders, plumbers sewer people, roof and other vendors to give my property a major facelift. This was a great investment for me in terms of way the property was eventually sold and the price it was sold for. I was very touched by Rick’s application here spending many hours working with the vendors and coming up with proposals and talking them through with me so we can get the right price and the work done in the way it needs to be. His consistent follow up and follow through was excellent.
When it came to marketing the house, the brochure they prepared and the Caravan they organized before the house was actually listed went very positively. Rick and Caroline were also available to show people around as I was not living there and the number of times that they had to continue to go over there to make sure everything was in order, particularly when the staging was put in, and both their willingness to do what it took to get the house into a marketable position was very positive.
Rick called me whenever it was necessary to meet and talk with potential buyers and was always instrumental to helping me in the price he thought I should be negotiating with the buyer.
The property was initially two sold quite quickly within a two week period of being marketed and unfortunately the buyer dropped out of escrow days beforehand as there were issues with the property that he was not comfortable with. Rick handled this very professionally and the way he dealt with the buyer and the escrow company in this matter. Nick got more involved when we put it on market again without staging as Rick was on vacation and helped me tremendously in meeting potential buyers and talking about how we should negotiate.
Rick’s Team are a very professional operation and one that I will recommend to my major Entertainment Clients as I am a Business Manager. I want to thank them for all of their efforts, their quality service and their ability to truly follow through and get my house sold in the way that it was and my thanks will always go with them!
It was a bright and clear day in mid-May when I got a text alert for an open house on S. Rodeo Dr in my beloved hometown of Beverly Hills. I was driving westbound on Olympic Blvd and was close so I decided to make a quick stop with no expectations...
I was raised and born in Beverly Hills so when I moved back to LA several years ago I got married and had my first kid and my wife and I decided to move back to my old house which my parents had been renting. However, after several years there we started to get an itch to move and put our feelers out there to take the equity we had in the house and upgrade within Beverly Hills. We weren't in any rush but had seen a number of over-priced and under kept houses which dampened our hopes a bit. We were looking for the right house and could afford to wait to find it. So when I walked through the doors of this house on Rodeo, I knew I had found it. In an instinct. I have pretty good instincts and I was sure this was the house for me and my family. After a quick run-through I bumped into the listing agent, Rick Ojeda. I've dealt with a lot of brokers and agents in my professional career so I'm kind of jaded but there was something about this guy's demeanor and presence that seemed to fit right into the feeling I got from this house. After a brief conversation with Rick I once again trusted my instincts and asked him to represent us in the deal rather than the agent we were going to use. I just had this feeling that if we played our cards right Rick could guide us through the deal. I knew I had to move very quickly... Houses like this rarely come up for sale and this was something special, so we put in an offer that night and now it was in Rick's hands...
It's been said that adversity doesn't build character... It reveals it.
Our offer got accepted and halfway through escrow we realized we had to change course with our loan broker, which meant asking for more time. The moment came where I had to tell Rick what happened and it was not a conversation I wanted to have with him. After I told him I held by breathe waiting for his response, which was "Uggghh... (long pause) OK this is our game plan". That was THE defining moment in this deal. I thought Rick could've abandoned us and went with the next buyer but he knew we were the right family for this house and trusted his instincts despite the pushback he was going to get and helped us close and he did it honestly and ethically and with great tact. A real professional and a great guy who works for a great company! Rick Ojeda and the Partner's Trust just do things the right way... an idea which seems to have been lost on us in today's real estate market.
Great advice, from pricing to tactics. Great support from excellent photos and marketing, to professionally staffed and organized open houses, to careful and sophisticated negotiations, to professional and thorough closing. Worked in partnership with me, through the business and personal decisions of selling such an important asset and part of my life. They provide An integrated team with dedicated involvement and availability at all levels and for all aspects of the process. In an increasingly tough market, with tough buyers, they got me top dollar, excellent deal terms, and got it closed in 60 days, from initial listing to closing, when a lot of other deals in the market were falling through. I've been buying and selling real estate for decades, and this team gets my highest marks.
He is a natural in real estate business. He has a rare ability to pinpoint the perfect properties and help me acquire them as great investments and as well as personal home.
This will be my third home transaction on record. All different cities of California, all different markets, all different experiences. When entering LA, I was aware that the task at hand would be complex and was anxious of prices and the overall market on a whole. After being unsuccessfully paraded about by several realtors of recomendation, nothing seemed to be clicking. I took a brief hiatus, and then a close friend recommended Shaun Alan Lee of Partners Trust to me. YAHTZEE! Literally, from our initial meeting, I knew it just a matter if time. We casually met, I conveyed my vision, and he confidently opened his world to mine. Respectful attention, passionate drive, and knowledgable market analysis on his behalf, landed me in my dream home in Venice :) The entire negotiation process felt more like a casual conversation in passing versus a legal affair. Shauns main concern was my comfort, which for me, was everything. Moving forward with purchasing, selling, and renting I will actively utilize and highly recommend Shaun. He is the epitome of a contemporary professional, and has the supreme team of Partners Trust in his corner. 10/10
I worked with Shaun to buy my condo in West LA over the summer and my experience really could not have been better for a first time home owner. It was clear from the start that Shaun is interested in building long-lasting relationships with his clients through hard work and a firm foundation in real estate that is based on respect. He went out of his way to educate me and my family and made the process as painless as possible from the initial search all the way through closing of escrow. Shaun is a highly motivated professional with experience WAY beyond his years (as I quickly observed through my interactions with other sellers) and because he was born and raised here, his knowledge of the LA area is extensive. His responsiveness via text, email, and phone were all very quick and he made a sincere effort to work around my hectic career schedule. He's a strong negotiator as well- Shaun even managed to work in some key furniture pieces from the previous owner and for that I am both impressed and grateful. Overall, I have had and continue to have a wonderful experience working with Shaun and everyone at Partners Trust (especially Nick and Sham) and I HIGHLY recommend him.
