I recently hired Ms. Yoshiko Oest to lease my townhouse in the South Bay area of Los Angeles and I would certainly hire her again in the future.. She is thorough, patient, and dedicated to providing her client’s with the highest level of professionalism—always considering their best interests even when it might result in a loss for her.

Yoshiko is extremely knowledgeable and caring! She keeps your best interests in mind at all times. She truly made buying my first home feel like a breeze through all the stress and other commotions that come with purchasing. My family of seven is forever indebted to her for her kindness, loyalty and commitment.

Yoshiko and her team did an amazing job in selling our home last year. They helped us find the right contractors to make repairs and market the property for the highest bid. They followed up with all potential leads and were able to secure a great price for us and close quickly.

Yoshiko Oest was very helpful through the home buying process. She was very kind, knowledgeable and was prompt to answer any questions I had, at any time of day.

Highly Likely, very, very impressed….a goal-oriented agent who knows the trade-in working with clients. She was amazing working with the multiple buyers and buyer’s agent. Yoshiko set a new record in selling a property in less than two weeks while always keeping my interest in mind. I have referred Yoshika to others and they will surely have the same experience. Thank you Yoshiko!

I cannot find enough words to describe how lucky I was to have worked with Yoshiko on purchasing my first home. Her and her team was there for me every step of the way and answered me promptly every time I had a question — and I had a lot. Regardless if was late evenings or on the weekends, Yoshiko always made herself available. She is super knowledgable, patient, caring, sweet and resourceful! I would h...

I didn’t know them before, but Yoshiko and her partner took my house from getting zero bites and being taken off market, to selling for just about asking during the tough Christmas period. They were thorough, friendly, smart and aggressive and had a great network. You won’t be sorry!

Yoshiko came in to represent the sale of my home after it was on the market for over 8 months previously and got it sold in about 3 weeks. They were a pleasure to work with, committed, always available, knowledgeable, and professional. Thank you both once again.

Mark & Josephine C.
Yoshiko recently sold our home in Rolling Hills Estates. Their whole team were such a pleasure to work with. They were very quick, efficient and professional. They instructed us on the best ways to show our home and it paid off. We ended up selling our home the same day as the broker’s open. Upon looking for our new home, Yoshiko really went out of their way to work with us and always looked out for our ...

Outstanding, superb, very knowledgeable, very professional, and very savvy. I was very fortunate to have met them. My house sold at a good premium because of them. I strongly recommend them and’ urge you to reach out to them as the ultimate and best agents to get the job done.

Yoshiko and her team are absolutely the best. They previously helped me find a new home at the beach and have now sold my old home in Brentwood. They took care of everything and the escrow closed in 12 days. The process was very smooth with little if any stress. What I really appreciated was that they always responded to my phone calls. If they were on another line they called back within minutes. They w...

Working with Russ and his team was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. The transition was very seamless and making a record-breaking deal in North Torrance. If you’re looking for someone to represent you, make sure to get in touch with Russ.
