Compliments for Tressana Alouane

Highly likely to recommend

- Andy P.

We have had the pleasure of knowing Tressana for years so when it came time to sell our home we knew just who to call. Tressana made the process easy, enjoyable and kept us well-informed. We additionally were attempting to sell our home during the COVID lockdown with a contingency deal hanging in the balance. Needless to say it all worked out and Tressana made it happen. We would recommend her to anyone considering selling or purchasing. Great experience, great person.

Compliments for Tressana Alouane

- Chris H - Senior VP NBC Universal Theatrical

Tressana is, simply put, in a league of her own. As a first-time homebuyer, I had a million questions, a million concerns, and a million different priorities – often in conflict – all of which could have driven many agents away. But with kindness, knowledge, passion, and honesty, Tressana was my unwavering advocate in finding, and eventually purchasing, the home of my dreams. She is thoughtful, smart, and inspires her clients to hone in on their most authentic house-hunting objectives, and with patience, commitment, and good cheer along the way, end up exactly where they should. Character and integrity along the way makes a huge difference in any sort of business, and Tressana has it in spades. I’m so grateful for her guidance throughout my purchase, and know that whenever the time comes for another real estate transaction, she’ll be the first person I call.

- Peter C.

Tressana was extremely helpful at all stages of the selling process. She totally organized the preparation of the house for sale, which turned out to be a complicated process because of the accumulation of 20 years of clutter, and transformed it into a bright and attractive property. She has a great range of important contacts when it came to the contractors we required for repairs - electricians, painters, stagers, and tradesmen of all kinds - and she was always on top of them to make sure the work was done in a timely way, and was done properly and thoroughly. She was not just trying to make the place just superficially more attractive, but respectful of the needs of the buyer too. The marketing process, including the photography and all aspects of the listing, were perfect. She knows all the relevant regulations inside out and was 100% correct in all her estimates of how things needed to move forward. She was tactful and honest and forthright in her negotiations with potential buyers and kept us in the loop at every step. Her judgment about the timing of the sale and the offering price proved to be totally sound and the net result was that we sold it for quite a bit above the asking price in a matter of a few days after it was listed. She was so thorough in her presentation of the property that the escrow proceeded with no contingencies and was closed within the projected time frame. On top of all this, she is simply a delightful and personable realtor who really goes out to bat for her clients and goes above and beyond in her efforts to serve them.

When I first started to look for a place to live in LA it was completely overwhelming. I’m so happy I have Dan on my side. He helped me understand the different parts of the city and neighborhoods that I was unaware of. He has been so helpful, accommodating and extremely easy to talk to. He has made this process so easy and stress free for me and I can’t thank him enough.

- Mariola & Chris W.

Thank you Tressana, Thanks to Tressana’s professional approach we sold our condominium in Woodland Hills very quickly. Her real estate knowledge paid off extremely well, even during pandemic concerns. Also, she cooperated with the buyer’s agent to make the transaction very smooth. In the past she helped us to buy a house, our primary residence in Santa Monica. A few years later she assisted us in purchasing a condo. Every time we needed real estate help, we were very confident that her expertise would be right for us. We always appreciate all her suggestions and recommendations. Her warm personality and honesty makes her a very special person, and we are proud to be friends with her.

Compliments for Michele Moses

Highly likely to recommend

- Armine

My family and I had the privilege of working with Michelle Moses to find our next home. My husband an I teamed up with Michelle to find a home in a neighborhood with stellar schools and walking distance to shops, restaurants etc... From day one, Michelle listened to our needs with utmost sincerity and dedicated her time and effort to really get to know us. Her knowledge of the real estate industry was apparent to us from the very beginning. She is not only knowledgeable in the basics of the industry but well beyond it. She was able to quickly and accurately assess properties in order to save us time and effort in a process that may be overwhelming at times. Above all else, my family and I really treasure her positive attitude and abundant energy! She gave her one hundred percent to efficiently and timely complete necessary research and paperwork, correspond with other agents and do what it takes for OUR BEST INTEREST. Her strength in reading people and building relationships makes her a powerful player that you want in your team when you are looking to purchase a home!

Dan was such a gentleman every time we saw each other. He always opened doors for me and was very helpful. He gave me his arm when we were going down the stairs when I was wearing my heels. Such a gentleman. He was so well versed in the neighborhood and had some very good observations that I would not have caught on my own. I will absolutely use him in the future - A class act!

We met Josie about six months ago at an open house and she impressed us with her knowledge and approach to selling a home. We decided to ask her to list our home and she did a wonderful job while representing us through the process.Her communications were frequent and supportive of our expectations. Her personality and ability to be persistent while remaining pleasant and professional we believe made a material difference in a successful sale.

- Mamta

To be a homeowner (as a single woman-of-color-immigrant-lady boss-first-time-home-buyer) has always been a vaguely ludicrous, perhaps even completely unattainable dream. But, in 2017, Chris Picket helped turn that dream is reality. I had been searching and putting in offers in the LA area for 1.5 years before I met Chris. I would also making it to the top tier of the offers, but was inevitably muscled out by cash buyers. I felt I had no business calling Chris has he handles multi-million dollar properties and A-listers within the Hollywood community. Nevertheless, I called up Chris out of the blue and explained my situation. He said first-time homeowners were his favorite and that he wanted to help me find the right home. Chris is the type of business partner who listing agents really enjoy working with - he doesn't nag, he doesn't try to manipulate you and he's fair. He's calm, organized and doesn't lose his cool. So he's great to work with no matter which side of the table you're sitting on. Fundamentally, he helped me structure a winning deal that the buyer couldn't say no to and he's known as a closer. He and his staff were prompt and attentive to all my questions - which really helped move things along. Chris also happens to be exceptionally talented and a kind Real Estate Agent, who provided a quality experience and a good humored one. I wasn't traumatized, rather when I closed, I felt empowered.

Josie made a deal happen that I didn’t think would make it. She found me a multi unit building that was off market. She handled the complex and stressful deal in a calm and logical manner and protected my interest every step of the way. The other agent was very difficult and the escrow officer was slow and didn’t do a good job. Josie stayed on top of them and managed to push through the circus of a deal. We had squatters on the property and Josie did everything needed and beyond, to get every piece of documentation we needed to be protected. I didn’t think the deal could close. Every day I thought it was over but she pushed and was very thorough in her paperwork. She also recommended I start drinking Chamomile tea for my stress! She calmed me down and I got a great deal on the building. She is definitely a bulldog. She was attentive to everyone involved in the transaction and made the impossible, possible.

Dan was great! He was always on time to every showing we went to and very polite. He communicated and updated me constantly with new information throughout the entire process. He explained things very clearly to me when I was confused or foggy about certain tactics or information. He would go into detail of his strategies and break it down for me when I asked why he was saying this or that. I had no idea real estate was so complex!
