“Wendy shared a wealth of knowledge that was clearly backed by her seasoned experience as a broker. She is patient, approachable, professional and we most valued her attentiveness. Wendy dedicated time to listening and narrowing down our likes/dislikes, which took a lot of patience since we were first time home buyers. Thank you Wendy for sticking it through with us. […] We are so glad to have met Wendy and would highly recommend her superior services to all of our friends and family.
“It was a pleasure working with Wendy on purchasing my home. This was my first home buying experience and she was helpful and informative every step of the way. Wendy was patient in what was a long search process and went above and beyond to help me find a house that I loved. Her advice was insightful and she was a calming presence during a very stressful process.
“Having Wendy Rich-Soto as our agent was the luckiest thing that happened to us during the whole process of buying a house. We are first time home buyers and Wendy literally guided us and explained every step. She happily answered all our questions, worked very efficiently and was always there for us. We highly recommend her to those who need help buying houses in the South bay area!
“As a first time home buyer it was very important to me that I had a real estate agent that was willing to guide me through the process. Wendy did just that. No question or request was ever too small or too big. She made the impossible possible and I’m so happy I was able to find her through Redfin.”
“Wendy did a great job representing both sides of a very complicated escrow. If anything could go wrong during the process, it did. She handled every obstacle that came along and did an amazing job negotiating for both sides of the deal. She was super patient throughout the whole ordeal and found solutions that made the deal work for everyone. She is a very compassionate person with a strong moral compass that is really there to help you. Thanks to her I finally have the home I always wanted!”
We met Wendy in 2013 and she sold us a condo. It was a wonderful experience. Last year we decided to sell that condo and do a 1031 tax exchange for another property closer to Disneyland where we visit most often. I am in Northern California and was very concerned about having a condo full of furniture and not knowing how to get it ready for sale being so far away. Wendy and her team came in and packed our all of our belongings, put them in a pod and had them shipped to us. She had a house cleaner come in and do a deep clean. Then she expertly staged it and didn’t even charge me for it! The pictures looked amazing and I couldn’t believe it was the same place! She had the place sold in a week and we couldn’t have been happier. She found us another place with air conditioning and a garage 15 minutes from Disneyland. She got our offer accepted, negotiated the terms and got us through the entire process without me ever having to go there in person. She is a true professional and she will always be my Realtor. If you are looking for a good one, I suggest you call her because I don’t know too many people that work as hard as she does!
“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 Rich-Soto helped my brother and I to sell the family home in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, which our parents had purchased more than 50 years prior. I can’t imagine having a better real estate experience than the one we had with Wendy. We were nervous at first because she suggested a significantly higher asking price than any of the other realtors we contacted. But, her confidence in that price was unwavering. We chose her as our realtor because she appreciated the unique qualities of our home and valued those features as much as we did. Wendy was sensitive and respectful of our needs as she expertly guided us through the whole complicated process of selling our home. We received 5 offers within 8 days of listing. Wendy proved to be very tenacious as she shrewdly negotiated the best possible deal for us. Our house sold for over that asking price that Wendy originally suggested. Wendy has extensive knowledge and experience in the real estate business. Those qualifications along with her good heart helped us immeasurably through the process of saying goodbye to our beloved family home.
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.
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 getting the house ready to put on the market, and listened to all their concerns. She was never pushy, but definitely was right on with her professional opinion of what needed to be done to upgrade the house enough to get excellent offers and a quick sale!
Wendy went the extra mile at every turn, and personally was there to oversee that everything was done right. Since we live out of state, we totally trusted that Wendy would take care of every situation that came up without us being there- and she did- from hiring contractors to staging the house. She was always available by phone or text, and got back to us right away. We can’t thank Wendy enough for her professional, positive, can-do attitude, and for being a kind, caring, and lovely person to work with.
