Ellen D. & Arnold S.
Thirty years ago, just after Ellen moved to the city, Steve Sawaii sold me my house on the West Side. It was an easy sale but I liked him a lot and so when it was time for my partner Arnie to sell his Santa Monica townhouse, I was very happy to see Steve’s name all over town as a leading realtor in the area. We hired him. From beginning to end which went very quickly Steve was perfection. He began with a professional presentation about how he approached sales, comps, etc. which convinced us to go ahead. We agreed we should move quickly to take advantage of the market. We did our part by emptying everything, but Steve made the rest super easy, providing us with all the painters, carpenters, floor guys, and stagers that we needed. He had a clear idea of what we needed to do to increase the unit’s sellability and the turned out to be absolutely right. He also convinced us of the way to price, to ensure a quick sale and competition between buyers. He was absolutely right. Within three days of the opening, we had three offers, including one all cash. Next came the escrow, which was quick and challenging. Steve guided us with perfection through what to accept, what not, of the buyer’s requests. Escrow completed on time. We would recommend Steve Sawaii to absolutely anyone who was looking for a West Side realtor. Our experience couldn’t have been better.
