Marketing Director



John Jackson made our moving process as painless as possible. He showed us homes which met within our specs and was very open and honest about all of them, he was always punctual, and found us the perfect home for our soon to be family. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to rent or own a home. This is my go to guy from now on. Thank you so much John we can’t say that enough! – Luke Shumar
Bruce Hehr did an excellent job! He was very thorough, knowledgeable and attentive throughout our adventure of finding the right home for us. He listened to our wants/needs and helped us understand the logistics involved in being a first time home buyer. I would strongly recommend Bruce to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and genuine realtor. – Kellyn King

Jennifer went above and beyond and really made us feel like family during the entire process. My wife and I had no idea just how many things were involved in buying our first home, but Jennifer had answers to every question or problem we came across and really made the entire experience feel easier than buying a car. Would recommend her to anyone and everyone, she really blew our expectations away and was a pleasure to work with. -Mitchell Miles

Bruce Hehr spent all of the time necessary helping us understand the Westlake, Agoura Hills and Thousand Oaks neighborhoods. Then helping us find the home we liked and negotiate a buy. He was always on time and prepared with maps, floor plans and photos of each of the many homes we looked at. We would use him again. – Ralph Colonna

John is easy and fun to work with, but tough and well-minded in his decisions. His knowledge of property and value impressed me, as did his negotiating skills. John displayed patience with me as I grappled with many choices, providing me with competent advice along the way. He sold two properties for me and helped me purchase one. I plan on giving him high recommendations to my friends and colleagues. – Rich Underhill

John Jackson and Jennifer Staats are a great team. They helped me sell my house -the process was quick, and we walked away with more money than we had expected.

What I liked most about working with John and Jennifer was their accessibility. They were always available to answer my questions and to meet with me if needed. I never felt as if I was having to navigate things on my own or left to wonder what was happening.

When I am ready to purchase my next home, they will be who I hire to help! – Meredith Madnick
