I hired The Parsons Team to help sell my home last year (2015) after experiencing some challenges with my first hired real estate agency and my home being on the market six months. The Parsons Team moved quickly after taking over my listing. Within two weeks, they helped me (1) negotiate release from the first agency, (2) took beautiful new pictures of my home, (3) totally re-staged my home, and (3) did extensive marketing before re-listing my home. After only two, 2 days on the market – The Parsons Team secured multiple offers and sold my home quickly. This was my first experience selling a home, so many lessons learned, but the #1 lesson – make sure you hire the best agent/agency to represent you and that they understand your needs. I can honestly say that ‘The Parsons Team’ is the #1 and Best Real Estate Team to work with!!
“Brian represented us as we began our long and arduous process of finding a home in the great Los Angeles region. He had been referred to us specifically for South Pasadena. During the months together, he was patient and even assisted with our search in regions outside his normal areas of expertise. He guided us well with regard to houses that had been quickly flipped and didn’t have the best materials. He was able to highlight potentials issues with the closing. In addition, as a local realtor, he could connect with other local players and easily determine the market prices of the many types of home in South Pasadena. He was always available. He also had a team to assist with the closing process (escrow, inspections, repair recommendations). We would recommend Brian, without any reservations, to a friend or family member seeking to buy a home in the South Pasadena area.”
“Our experience with the agency and with Brian Parsons in particular was superior. We were directed to Brian through a friend at an out-of-state Keller Williams office. He is an outgoing, friendly and straightforward guy, who was easy to develop a rapport with. Immediately, he took us for a tour to get a “feel” for what we liked in terms of neighborhoods and houses. It was an eight month process since we were very, very particular and the market in Pasadena/South Pasadena is competitive. He constantly checked in (phone calls), sent us the usual MLS listings, and came with us for all our site visits. He went out of his way, when we were looking in Silver Lake, to come down and go to open houses with us. He was very good a “diagnosing” the property. There were a few homes we liked, which he steered us away from because of structural issues he identified. He’s the kind of guy who is willing to check in all the nooks and crannies, even if he is in a suit! He was also good at having “those conversations” with sellers agents and getting information that is very useful to buyers when deciding on price. Ultimately, it was the relationships that Brian and his mother had established in the region (along with a clean offer) that got us the inside track to get a house in a neighborhood that was getting 20-30 offers per house and typically commanding 20% over asking. It is also worth nothing that the entire agency was helpful. The front desk people and his other agents. When Brian was tied up, and we wanted to see something at a particular day/time, he had one of his colleagues meet us. When there were inspection appointments we could not make, he ensured someone from the agency was there! Finally, they are all a nice group of people to work with. He’s developed a good team, with good instincts and great contacts throughout the region. We are now using them to sell our condo. In short, if you are looking for a realtor in the area, this is the group to go with.”
Brian, thank you for helping us purchase our home! Thank you for spending countless hours looking for listings and writing offers for us (8 total). During this transaction, you got us into the house early while not a lot others had such opportunities to look at the house; you suggested offer and counter offer based on your experience with the market; you organized the biggest inspection “party”; you negotiated all the terms even when you were on vacation; you arranged contractors to give us quotes on the repairs, and, you even completed a repair the day before closing escrow. You made impossible happen! We are lucky we got the BEST agent in the universe! You have done such a fantastic job and we truly appreciate everything you have done for us. You are the one and only agent we will ever refer to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home. With a million thanks,
