WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
First of all, I must say that I was a residential agent in my 20s so I’m very familiar with what an agent's responsibility is. I worked in a very elite area in San Diego and was mentored by the cream of the crop and no one came close to comparing to Derek and Michelle. I truly have no words for the exceptional experience we had with them. From day one, they went above and beyond. We looked at so many houses I lost count. I felt like a nightmare client but they never made me feel like anything but valued, they showed me house after house until we found “the one”. Their understanding of the market, attention to detail, and willingness to help make it so easy to focus on finding a home. Their honesty and integrity are second to none. They didn’t just send us our contracts to sign, they made sure we read them over and were aware of all details so we were aware of exactly what we were entering into. Because the seller’s agent was on vacation, they had to do more than their share of the work. Their caring personalities are another virtue that sets them apart. I could write paragraphs about all the little things they did that made them stand out among the rest because there are so many but instead, I’ll just say that they’ve earned a lifetime client. I’m so glad to have made their acquaintance and give them the highest of recommendations to anyone looking for a seamless experience buying or selling a home.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I bought my house through Derek and Michelle. They were wonderful to work with; thoughtful and helpful throughout the entire process.

— Nick

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
As a team, Michelle and Derek have an expansive knowledge of the market, building quality, and contracts. They know how to find a great deal in the house of your dreams! I really appreciate that Derek has hustled without trying to push you into the wrong decision. I felt like I could trust his advice fully! Michelle really helped to understand the contracts and was essential in helping us keep to schedule everything. They were wonderful to work with!

— Zach & Heidi

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“I have only praise for Derek and Michelle. I met Michelle when she and Derek had a probate sale in my neighborhood and I knew I had one coming up. Michelle impressed me with her knowledge, expertise in probate, and willingness to answer all of my many questions. When I listed my house I met Derek and he too was as knowledgeable and as helpful as Michelle. Probate sales are exacting so it was a wonderful experience to have two people who knew what they were doing when the many offers came in. The house sold over asking within days, but due to covid, we had to wait six months for a court date. During that time Michelle contacted me frequently, and the entire sale and escrow went smoothly. They helped me from day one until the close of escrow. I have already asked for their help in finding my new home.

— C.D.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
What can I say Michelle and Derek are awesome! We were let's say "particular" clients. No Signs, No Open Houses, and High Stress. Derek and Michelle took everything in stride and had two written offers in the first week. We LOVE them! They are the dynamic duo you need to sell your home.

— Agingiss

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We had heard of a neighbor's experience working with Derek and Michelle Luczyski and, after meeting with them for preliminary discussions, decided to list our home of 35 years with them and their agency. From the get-go, both agents worked with us to achieve our goal of a successful listing. They identified areas that needed attention, helped locate businesses to address those areas, and saw them to completion. Throughout the entire experience, both were in frequent contact with us and, in our opinion, went far beyond what we had experienced without agents we had worked with. Cannot say enough about the efforts they made to complete the sale of our home, very competent team with high professional integrity. All the way to close and relocating, thank you two!

— John & Frank

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Derek and Michelle Luczyski are the dream team of real estate agents. I thought selling the home that I had lived in for 35 years would be a nightmare, but it turned out to be easier than buying a new car. And it was because Derek and Michelle stayed on top of every aspect of the listing - from initial staging to advertising, to private showings they made the entire process seamless and stress-free. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

— Norman

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Michelle and Derek are very experienced and professional Realtors®. Their knowledge of real estate transactions made my process go very smoothly. I would highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

— Ingrid

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Michelle and Derek are an amazing team of agents. As first-time home buyers, we didn't know much about the process. They answered all our questions and helped us each step of the way. Also of note, their knowledge of the area and construction is above the bar and exceeded our expectations.

— NM & RN

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Derek and Michelle are fantastic Realtors®. Their local knowledge is unsurpassed and their negotiating skills are great! They made a normally stressful situation seem very easy and painless. Our house sold quickly and for top dollar. We would not consider any other Realtors in the Los Angeles area.

— J.P.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I would agree that the majority of Realtors® conduct themselves in such a way as to uphold the integrity of their respective client(s). But to have experienced a husband and wife Realtor® Team that would put forth added effort to assure that "we", the buyers of their client's property, concluded the real estate transaction not just satisfied, but rather exceedingly grateful is more than enough to warrant our joint recommendation. Throughout our recent real estate transaction with their clients (aka sellers), Derek and Michelle Luczynski have both individually and collectively exemplified what it means to conduct oneself at all times, morally and ethically at the highest standards of business practices! KUDOS to you, Derek and Michelle, for you've certainly reset the bar for how real estate agents should conduct themselves at all times before, during, and even after a real estate transaction has concluded. Well done!

— Keith

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
OMG, what an amazing team of agents! After sifting through selling agents we picked The Luczyskis and we are glad we did. They are not smoke blowers or listing hogs, but Worker Bees that handled every aspect of our sale. They went 200% beyond what any other agent would have done for our listing; from the perfect pictures to the closing we would have never made it through without them. Other agents just want the listing, Derek and Michelle work their listings daily! If you are looking for hardworking and serious agents, do not go any further.
