Lily Campbell and Kim Le helped us sell our home and then to buy our new home. They met with in the evening so that it would better suit our schedules and stayed with us for several hours explaining the entire process and answering any questions we had. They came very prepared for the first meeting, already providing a lot of analysis and a game plan for selling our home. We were very impressed, their experience and knowledge was honest, realistic, and very importantly, accurate! They managed our expectations well and were very perception to any of our concerns. As soon as anything would happen that we'd have a concern on, they'd call to check up on us to make to answer any questions.
They provided a full service experience! With contractors, they called them, negotiated quotes, booked appointments, and even met with them at our house to make sure they did the work right! Kim helped stage our home and made it look the best it's ever been since we've lived in it. Kim decorated it with so many wonderful items that we wish we had met her to decorate the house when we first bought it!
One of the reasons why we went with Lily Campbell's team is that we've been to many open houses locally and we've noticed that her open houses always have a lot of visitors, more so than others, and that was no different with our open house. We did one weekend and both days had a lot of people coming through. We had several prospective buyers (their realtors) calling the same day we listed to view before the open house and also after. After the first weekend we had 3 offers already and two being ABOVE OUR LISTING PRICE! They discussed all the options and told us which one was the most serious buyer and the best offer, but to also take it right away as no others would be likely to beat it and they were right! We accepted it and later on two more offers came but were still under the one we accepted already. She helped make sure we didn't lose our best offer buyer by wasting any time and she also helped negotiate a RENT BACK for us until we could found our new home, which was crucial for us.
The process, paperwork, contracts, were all explained so easily by them, they made the process so smooth. They also helped us find our current home and negotiated everything in time for us to end our rent back right when the owners could leave so we were able to move straight into our new one no problem! The new home we bought was in a very competitive neighborhood. They also managed our expectations well there, communicated with the realtor and sellers and really STOOD UP FOR US when the selling realtor was trying to take advantage. Kim and Lily made sure we didn't get tricked during the negotiations and repairs, and we weren't just pushed around.
If we ever decide to leave our home then we will absolutely be using Lily Campbell's team again! We absolutely recommend them for any real estate services because they go above and beyond for their clients! They were the most honest and upfront realtors we've ever worked with and they truly care about protecting their clients!
We worked with Lily and Cabot on selling a rental property in Huntington Beach and they were awesome to work with! The property needed quite a few repairs and termite work to get ready and they were instrumental in not only finding the right contractors (they had an already established "ecosystem" of professionals to draw from), but also coordinating the work and making sure we didn't spend more than we had to. After everything was ready, they helped stage the property and make it look really nice. Their knowledge of the area and the local market was very useful as well. The sale process went quick and smoothly. Overall a great experience!
Lily Campbell and team member Kim Le were outstanding! We listed our home with them and the service the provided was professional, timely and responsive. They answered all our questions and sought input from us on all aspects of the sales process (price, timing, staging, scheduling and offers). Our experience was completely positive and we would highly recommend Lily Campbell and her team to both prospective buyers and sellers. Patty & Phil Burden
Lily came prepared with comps of recent sales in the area. We discussed what my goals were in regard to selling of my home. She brought a suggested price and we agreed to list the house. Professional photos were taken for the listing. The house sold for over asking price, 13 offers, in four days. I am completely overwhelmed with the positive result. I would recommend Lily and her team to anyone who desires to sell or purchase a home.
Lily Campbell and her team at First Team Real Estate did an outstanding job selling our home in Fountain Valley. Not only did she negotiate a great price, but she brought us a cash offer and a 25 day escrow. It doesn't get much better than that! Lily and her team were always accessible and responsible. Our home sale happened quickly and easily. We highly recommend Lily, you've found the best - no need to keep looking for anyone else.
Have utilized Lily and Cabot Henry three times in the last year to both purchase and sell homes. In purchasing the homes, we have had no issues. They understood what we were looking for and only showed us houses that met our criteria. Once decided, they were able to negotiate and resolve any issues.
In selling our house, they were able to set a reasonable price and we obtained multiple offers even in the tougher selling market. The major issue with our house was a leased solar contract, and Cabot was able to inform the buyer prior to any negotiations. The only issue that we had in the selling of our house was a buyer backed out but because of the contigency requirements they wrote in, it was not a long period of time and we were able to soon obtain other buyers.
We have recommended Lily and Cabot to other people.
Lily is a fabulous negotiator. Her communications with sellers are almost daily . She got us the best price and she is genuinely concerned about the well-being of her clients. I called her my real estate fairy godmother.
Cabot who is on her team has a team of his own who came to our aid with last minute fixes we needed . He also negotiated the removal of items upon the sale of the house.
Lily and Kim are the absolute best agents you can find!! We were so blessed to have come across them, we were not truly convinced that we were ready and they helped us through every detail with tremendous effort. They always had our best interest at the forefront. I would highly recommend them to anyone, I can promise you you won’t be disappointed!!
