This will serve as my highest recommendation for Real Estate Agents Doug and Rachel Swardstrom. They assisted us with the sale of our homes twice in Irvine Ca and can say with confidence that Doug and Rachel are the best agents we have ever used. Doug and Rachel have the qualities that make them an extremely successful and effective agents. We can’t say enough about their professionalism and knowledge within the industry. They have high integrity and are very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client's best interests in mind. One of the qualities we respected the most was their no- nonsense style, they get to the point quickly yet professionally, always respecting the client's time and do a great job of listening to their client’s needs. They are extremely responsive to questions, often responding immediately to our late night emails after midnight. They show great attention to the details enabling the transaction to get done. We have the highest level of confidence in them. Our transaction went very smoothly and we closed on time. As mentioned above, they represented us on the sale of our homes twice and we would not hesitate to have them as our listing agent again. Home sale processes can sometimes be complex but we have the highest level of confidence in Doug and Rachel and feel they would be able to properly assess any situation and figure out an effective solution. In any future transactions, we will only have Doug and Rachel represent us.
Rachel and Doug Swardstrom of The Swardstrom Group did an amazing job helping us sell our home in 2019. But before I get into what they did, I think it's important for you to know that these two (and their associates) are kind people, they are very patient with however many questions you have the are the kind of friends you'd want to have over for dinner. On the business side of things, Rachel and Doug took the time to research our neighborhood, share relevant information on selling strategies and gave us prudent advice in the sales process and timing. They made sure they were available to us, meeting with us on many occasions and staying connected via phone calls, emails and texts. Rachel and Doug did a great job getting our house on the market with professional staging, photography, videos and on the most relevant websites to help drive interest. The first week they did a grand opening party showing which was lively and fun, followed by open houses and many private showings while still taking into consideration the disruption it can be in their clients lives. All their hard work resulted in an offer in the first month on the market and a strong close very close to our asking price. My wife and I can't recommend them highly enough!
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.
Rachel and Doug Swardstrom came highly recommended to us from a “friend of a friend” and we knew the minute we met with them that they would sell our home and they did within a couple of weeks. We sold during what I think is a difficult time due to Covid and no open houses but that wasn’t the case. They had lots of showings and were always mindful of safety to both the home owner and the potential buyers coming in. Rachel guided us through the process and always stayed calm and was very professional. She will tell you “I’m working for you” and she definitely goes the distance and won’t let you down. We had previously listed our home with a different realtor and that wasn’t the case. Rachel and Doug are a pleasure to work with and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else sell our home.
The Swardstrom are solid professional RE agents and good to work with. Doug and Rachel recently sold our high-end home in Irvine at a record price for the community and less than 2 months from listing to close. They provided a lot of assistance and had good contacts to help prep our home for listing. The marketing was superb, from professional photography and videos to advertising and holding Open House. During purchase negotiation and through escrow, there were few tenuous periods, but Doug and Rachel persistence and composure helped us work through the differences with the buyer. We highly recommend the Swardstrom to either sell or buy your next home. We've recommended them to our relatives that are considering putting their house on the market.
