Wendy Rich-Soto | Keller Williams Realty, LA Harbor
Check out this interview with Wendy Rich-Soto, top Realtor in LA's South Bay area and beach city communities.
Tucked back on a winding road, perched so high you walk right into jaw dropping views from Malibu to Dana Point. This Mid-Century home sits on over ½ an acre of seclusion and privacy by well-known mid-century architects Smith & Gray. The second story addition was done by Anthony F. Inferrera. This is one rare Palos Verdes home designed with architectural significance and timeless style that can be felt in each room. The floor to ceiling windows and wood beamed ceilings make the space feel expansive and endless. There are 180-degree views & beyond through those windows. Being in the pool area of the backyard you'll go back in time. Imagine being in the pool at night watching the fireworks & every other light sparkling like diamonds. There is a beautiful mix of city and ocean views, so you have it all! A huge living room with limestone fireplace with shells embedded looks over lush succulent gardens & the view. Cement floors are under the carpet if you want to take advantage of the new modern stained concrete floors that's all the rage. There are 4 original tile art pieces built in by renowned artist Jay Rivkin. Huge pantry and utility room separate from the rest of the living spaces. Turn out driveway makes this property feel like an estate. 2-car garage and 1-car port space in keeping with that mid-century vibe. The second part of the backyard has mature trees including avocado and lemon trees. This is a home to love forever and enjoy for generations to come!
This wonderfully special place located on a cul-de-sac with panoramic harbor, ocean and LA skyline views in the Rancho Palos Verdes is just waiting for you! This picturesque home is filled with light and feels so inviting from the moment you step on to the front walkway. The front yard comes to life with colorful flowers of so many varieties, citrus & fig trees, and beautifully maintained foliage. There is custom woodwork throughout the home and on the semi spiral staircase that goes into a HUGE permitted room with views galore and gorgeous hardwood floors. Use it for a family room, a master bedroom, a game room or whatever your heart desires. Previously used as an artist loft, it has many possibilities. Downstairs you will find a comfortable living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths. Custom french doors take you out to a large rear yard with covered patio, stained glass window and wonderful panoramic vistas of the entire South Bay. Lovely fireplace adorned by more custom woodwork at the mantel as well. Laundry is right off kitchen which makes everything easy and functional. Close to shopping, restaurants, and more. PV schools option too! You can’t go wrong with this home! It is warm, inviting and one-of-a-kind!

Remodeled kitchen with huge peninsula island that has seating for 6, high end stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting, and more. Living room and dining are combined for a great room concept complete with 3 sets of sliding glass doors. Three bedrooms are equally split among the length of the home.

What impressed me the most is her ability to listen, distill, and match her client’s needs with the best possible property available within the contains of the latter’s budget.
Wendy was always there when I needed a question answered. Very prompt and professional doing buisness with her. She helped me sell my fathers house that Century 21 couldn’t!
I never met a more patient person! I went to CA to look for a new place to live. In order to get an idea of what I wanted (which I didn’t really know!) she spent hours taking me around the various neighborhoods I might consider. She showed me many condos and houses and I was able to get a very good idea of what I could get for my price range. When I went home Wendy continued to send me listings that met my criteria on the MLS. When I panicked about HOAs she wrote me a long email explaining how t…
Wendy helped us tremendously in every possible way with the process of selling our parents home, which they had lived in for over 50 years. The first thing Wendy did was to take the time to personally get to know the folks and their situation, and build up a trust and bonding with them. She was very patient, knowing’real estate’ was all new to them and that it would take them time to process and understand each and every step. Wendy explained with great patience and detail her suggestions for g…
Wendy was a fantastic realtor for us – very patient, willing to be in touch at virtually any time. She has the smarts to make deals happen, but is also very compassionate and makes sure you don’t enter into a deal you’re not comfortable with. As a first-time homebuyer, she made the very difficult (and annoying) process of buying a home in this market much more palatable. I give her my highest recommendation.
She is so nice!! She genuinely cares about the client. She answer question very fast and makes herself available for client. She is a big help thru the whole buying OR selling of a house!
“Wendy is a true professional, very knowledgeable about the area and the market. Her marketing strategies and her office staff were top notch and always readily available. She made everything possible and you made it happen without inconvenience. We HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for the “BEST in the BUSINESS” to sell their home! She truly has the customer’s best interest at heart from the moment she meets them until the job is done!”
Wendy spent many weekends and sometimes evenings showing us properties. She was hard working, efficient and knowledgeable in her field. Wendy is also personable and easy to get along with. Her patience and availability to show us properties when we needed was instrumental in finding the property we finally fell in love with.
Wendy helped me buy my first home, and sell it. She treated me like a VIP at every turn, and had an incredible amount of patience and compassion through the whole process. She feels like family!
She was so attentive and protective of me through the whole stressful process! She will always have your back and your best interests in mind in everything she does. I will always recommend her and if I forget by some remote chance that I never want to do this ever again, I will ALWAYS want Wendy to be my agent. Thank goodness she helped me get my “forever home” so I won’t have to, but if anyone else needs her services, you will not regret having her in your corner!
