Why People Love Us

Rachel is an amazing real estate agent, and moreover just a really good person. She guided us through the process of selling our home, finding a rental property and through a very complex negotiation of buying another property. Moreover the people who bought our home and the rental home we moved in to were not even in the market for either, but because of Rachel’s great network of people she was able to connect all of us together and it ended up working out really well for everyone. She definitely gets my highest recommendation!

Rachel is THE NUMBER ONE expert for Quail Hill and Shady Canyon here in Irvine California. If you ever go to this area on weekends, you will see that Rachel’s signs are all around. Why is that? Because she has heart and she cares.Walk around the neighborhood here and everyone says hello to her with a big smile. Everyone knows and loves her for her one of a kind personality. Her kind caring considerate personality translates into the level of care a person like me needed to close the deal. I have had agents before, but none of them come close to her responsiveness and negotiation skills. She has her way of negotiating, and in one deal she helped me significantly lower the purchase price. I know she was up way before me working on my deal. The point is she looks out for your interest, and unlike some, she is not there to line her own pockets, and I think it is because, she truly enjoys her line of work. She says this often and I take her to be true that she gets satisfaction “serving your needs”. If I were you I would go with THE NUMBER ONE expert for Quail Hill and Shady Canyon. user59794205

Rachel helped us find a rental for our family in Quail Hill. Her extensive knowledge of this area and of the community members gives her a very specific ability to find and negotiate for her clients. Would definitely use her again! Chris9521

My husband & I used Rachel to sell our home in Quail Hill & she had it sold in less than 24hrs – before it even hit the MLS! She helped us navigate through the escrow process and remained calm & professional even when there was snags with the new buyer. Then when we found a home we wanted to purchase she helped us successfully negotiate and beat out four other offers. It’s an older home and she helped us negotiate buyers credits to cover needed upgrades. We highly recommend Rachel! She always goes the extra mile to make sure you are covered whether you are the buyer or the seller and she is simply a pleasure to work with. user51739988

Rachel is a knowledgeable and caring agent. She goes the extra miles to ensure the process is seamless. She gives her very best, even for leasing transactions. We were lucky to have her as our agent.

I would most highly recommend Rachel and Doug Swardstrom to anyone looking for assistance with buying or selling a home. Rachel and Doug were exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and provided attention to the most minor details when selling our home (down to helping with last minute cleaning and managing all of our pets for showings and open houses). They utilized all of their resources in our local community to spread the word about our home, and as a result, our home sold very quickly, and at the best price per square foot for our plan. Rachel and Doug were always available and responsive for any questions or concerns. They helped us to find an appropriate rental home, and are now also helping us in purchasing a new home. In the future, we would without a doubt return to Rachel and Doug for any further real estate assistance that we needed. They have made the process as stress free as it possibly could have been. As a result, we highly and without any reservation would recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor. Mvasamd

Bought a recent property with Rachel, and she helped to find a tenant for our condo. Extremely pleasant, thorough, knowledgeable. I have bought and sold many properties in the past, and this has been the most enjoyable and stress free transactions I have had. Highly recommended for all your real estate needs!

We used Rachel as our agent on a buy-side transaction. My wife and I had been searching for a home for our family for several months before we met Rachel. We had specific needs and were having a very difficult time finding a house that met our requirements. We had worked with several other agents before engaging Rachel, but we had no success and, in fact, had some very poor experiences. Within 72 hours of meeting with Rachel, we had an accepted offer. Rachel had guided us through a competitive bid process and helped to prepare the paperwork before I left for an extended business trip. Rachel was exceptional in guiding us through the entire sale process. I travel frequently for work and Rachel and her team were extremely flexible with us, expertly handling every detail through closing. We had a perfect experience. I would highly recommend Rachel and the Swardstrom Group.

Working with Rachel has been a wonderful experience. She was able to rent my property in one week, found the best tenant, exactly what I was looking for. Rachel has been very helpful and prompt in answering my emails and phone calls since the beginning. I highly recommend her! Gabry C.

Rachel was a blessing in disguise and an absolute pleasure to work with. My wife and I had been attending open houses trying to meet with a good real estate agent, and had gone to a number of them before meeting Rachel at one that she was hosting. She is friendly, knowledgeable, extremely hard working and a very active member in her community. When we had decided on the model of home that we wanted, even though none were for sale, she went around to all of those homes in the area we liked and searched out interested sellers that were not yet on the market. We got to look at a few homes pre-market because of this before finally settling on the home that we live in now. We highly recommend Rachel, you won’t be disappointed. In fact, you may be pleasantly surprised by some cupcakes from time to time, we were! James Gillies
