Erika sold our home in Ontario and helped us purchase a new home in Jurupa Valley.  The sale of our Ontario home happen so quickly. She decorated the home we were selling so beautifully and we received a great offer in only five days after placing it on the market. My husband and I are very pleased because the homes in my area take about 60+ days on the average to sell.

I think the promotions that they did for my home on top of her decoration tips is what set it apart from other homes for sale in my area not to mention they did a great job in executing the sale.  The transition to the new home was also very smooth.  I purchased a Lennar Home and I couldn't be happier with this transition for my family.  Erika and David (her partner) showed up a few times to the development to help position us to get the floor plan we so much wanted.

There were quite a bit of competition buyers for the new development as well though through some perseverance and a few turn of events were able to finally secure the perfect location of the home we wanted.  Thank you Erika and David for all your assistance.  Our family couldn't be happier today with this new home and we appreciate you both for being a part of this whole buying/selling process.  They really earned me and my family's trust and certainly we will contact you again for our future real estate needs.

As San Diego transplants, our family was in need of a new home in the Inland Empire area.  Erika and her partner David helped us find the perfect home for my wife and two daughters.  Erika and David were patient, kind, and diligent in showing us properties in multiple cities.  We finally settled on a home that was less than 20 minutes from work. The house was in a gated community, great schools for our kids, had our must have features and the property taxes were low when compared to other cities that we were entertaining.  Erika and David are professional, knowledgeable, honest, and a genuinely great human beings that care about our family's well-being.  I would recommend them to anyone without reservation, for any real estate transaction.  Thank you so much Erika and David!  Our family looks forward to the next time we require your services!

Sincerely,

My mom, who currently resides out of state, and I decided to purchase a home as an investment property in Chino Hills.  I'm quite familiar with this area since this is the city where I currently live myself.  We attained Erika and her team's services and we were very happy with how they helped us find the right property, negotiated on our behalf, and carried out our escrow for us from beginning to end.  Erika is very reliable and very thorough when helping us find our rental home.  She is always fully prepared to answer any questions we had.  David her partner is also a great agent and very knowledgeable as well.  We did a 1031 exchange from a sale of another property from another state and our transaction was very smooth overall so my mother and I are very happy with them. 

We now not just met our realtors but made new friendships from meeting them.  Thank you so much to Erika and her team.  They truly are great people who are willing to help whenever we had questions. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Erika went out of her way to work with us. She is a person of her word and really delivers what she promises. This is the reason why we are doing this review.

Initially, our concern was that our home may sit on the market for a long time since there was another home just across the street that had been on the market for many months. There  were also many other homes for sale in our area.

We wanted to do our sale right the first time so we did some research on some agents and we contacted Erika for some advice. We met with her and she gave lots of great recommendations that really helped the sale of our home. She has a very good eye for things and she's quick at pin-pointing things that can help improve your sale while staying within your budget. In my case, Erika recommended we stage our home. We took her recommendation since our home  was vacant. Her staging company did an outstanding job at staging our home! She also has amazing marketing tools that set her apart from other agents. The photography, video, and websites that she created to market our home are  extraordinary!

Erika sold out Chino Hills home located at 16306 Sisley Dr., Chino Hills in record time! We were in escrow in only 10 days! We had multiple offers and she even had the appraisal contingency waived. Erika's team continued to communicate through the  entire escrow process as well. From the beginning to the end, Erika really proved to us that she was a result driven agent. This review is well deserved by all the efforts of Erika and her team. When we purchase our next property we will contact Erika again! We know she will take good care of us!

My wife and I are so excited about our new home in Chino Hills.  We sincerely appreciate Erika for getting our offer accepted.  There were multiple offers on the house and we really wanted the seller to take our offer.  Erika gave us some great advice to make our offer attractive in the seller's eyes and we are so glad that we listened to her.  She is such a kind and knowledgeable Real Estate Agent.  My wife and I really felt comfortable working with her.  We have met many real estate agents and it is refreshing to meet someone who really has your best interests at heart.  I honestly don't think we would have been about to get the house if not for Erika. 

Thanks so much for getting us into a wonderful home!

I just finished selling my home in Rancho Cucamonga and I was very pleased with how Erika and her team conducted the sale for me.  They are true professionals from the start to finish.  The buyer that purchased my property was relocating from a different state and I needed a longer escrow period for tax reasons.  Erika helped me to negotiate the deal and it worked out great.  

Erika and David helped get me into escrow on a new home in Mission Viejo.  I had to move into a short term rental since my new place would not be ready for several months.  It was the right decision since no one can predict the exact date a builder will be finished and I know the buyer couldn't wait that long for me.

I would definitely use Erika and her Team again.  Thanks for all your help!

Here is my story.

I live in bay area. I am looking for saler agent to sale my house in Eastvale. I have no idea who can help me to do that. I search online. Find Erika have more than fifty 5 star review in Yelp. I tell myself I really need to call Erika to ask her what she can do for my house.  During our conversation, I found she is very kind, nice, patient listen to me, and protioanlly answer my questions. She has confidence, passion, and lots experience. I feel very positive and want to meet her to have more detail discussion.

Next week, I arrange a trip to Eastvale and shedule to meet Erika in my property. Erika and David walk in my door with great smile. They walk through my property, tell me the current market, and provde me a very good plan to sale my house. Their plan include 6 service and 1 optional service. Wow, I really like their plan. I feel I found a very good team and really know how to sale house. I feel very confident on them and decide to let them sale my house.

I already had an offer on my property when I was in discussions with Erika and haven’t placed it on the open market just yet. I was unsure whether or not to take this offer. Erika never promised that I will get a higher offer, but that there was a much better chance that I would if I place the property on the market so I listened to her advice.

I’m glad I did listen to her. After the first open house, we got 6 offers. I am so happy and cheerful. I don't know how she did. Only one word to describe "AMAZING". We ended up taking an offer that was about $20,000 more than we initially received. We just close escrow this week. Over all the sale was smooth and she got me an all cash offer and I was so happy about the whole thing. I also referred her to my brother who is also selling his home with her now and entered escrow within the week of placing it on the market. That escrow is not closed yet but our family is very happy.

I wanted to commend Erika and her real estate team for helping me and my mom sell my property in Chino Hills. I currently live out of state with my wife and kids and my mom was living in the house. I went online and researched several agents and Erika has some great reviews. Erika was very responsive and kept us updated on the transaction completely even though I lived out of state. The buyers of our property had to sell their own house so the sale took a bit longer than normal, but we were confident that Erika and her team would get it sold one way or the other.

I am very happy that we picked the right real estate agent. She helped me and my mother with the transition to the next step of our lives by selling our property.

Thanks Erika!

My family and I are very happy with Erika and her team for helping us successfully close escrow on our home.  We were underwater on our house so we decided that the best course of action was to do a short sale.  Erika and her team made sure that we were aware of the options that were available to us and worked with us for almost 6 months.  She informed me that it normally doesn’t take this long, however our initial buyer had backed out of the short sale transaction and we had to start all over again with a different buyer.

They kept us and the bank asset manager informed through the whole process.  I sincerely appreciate all their hard work since there were so many parties involved for them to communicate with…bank asset managers, escrow, title, attorneys, lien holders, real estate agents and buyers.

We are sincerely grateful for all the help Erika and her team had provided to us and we would definitely recommend her to our family and friends and more importantly call her when we are ready to buy another house again.    

Sincerely,

Erika and David did an outstanding job selling our Pasadena townhouse. With over 24 years of combined experience, Erika and David are true real estate professionals. They understand the A-Z's of the real estate business and have trusted partnerships that facilitate your sale or purchase. They  walked us through the entire process of pricing, listing, staging and selling our townhouse. Once the property was on the market, we received multiple offers after one open house and went into escrow in only 11 days!! We know it is because of Erika and David's marketing that we received so much activity on the townhouse. Erika and David worked diligently to make sure that the entire process went smoothly and that we closed escrow on time.

My husband and I are more than happy to recommend Erika and David to anyone who wants to work with ONLY the BEST PROFESSIONALS in the business. Why settle for anyone less?

I have used Erika and David as my real estate agents to sell several of my properties over the years. They have been wonderful to work with and have always gone out of their way to make sure that the transaction closed smoothly. I know they went above and beyond what a normal real estate agents  would do to sell a property and I really appreciate that. I found them both to be genuinely caring, extremely respectful and very responsive. Our family admires their patience.

I just recently purchased a property in Azusa and I am very happy that it is a very quiet and safe neighborhood. I look forward to the evening walks in the community and also the talks that I am going to be enjoying with my family members on my lovely patio deck.

Thank you so much for all your help over the years.

I would like to commend Erika and her staff on doing such a great job on selling my home. I was referred to Erika from a friend of mine that also sold her house through Erika. She had wonderful things to say about her marketing and staging.

My family and I also decided to go thru staging. Erika  really transformed the house into an amazing home. I showed it to my family and friends and they all could not believe that it was the same home. I honestly could not believe that it was the same place that we grew up in.

Erika assured me that she would get the house sold and I think we had at least sixty people at our first open house. I couldn’t believe that there were so many people looking at the place and I couldn’t be happier with the results. We received an all cash offer and multiple other offers as well. Erika closed the escrow in 12 days.

I would highly recommend Erika and her staff to anyone looking to sell their property. They do amazing work!

Sincerely,
Kristine

My family and I had a wonderful selling experience with Erika and her home selling team. They were on point thru the entire process and the transaction flowed very smoothly. My family and I are relocating to Northern California so there were a lot of things to prepare.

I was very please with  the fact that I would not have to make additional mortgage payments for the existing home and also payments on the property in Northern California. Her marketing was amazing and we received multiple offers within the first 2 weeks of being on the market.

We would highly recommend them to all our friends and family.

My husband and I just closed escrow on our home in Chino Hills and we were very happy with Erika and her team.  We initially met with Erika and she showed us her marketing plan.  It really showed how detailed Erika and her team are.  My husband and I both have careers in IT and our schedules are very hectic so we wanted someone that could sell our home that we could trust would get job done right.

Erika showed us how we would get the most equity from the sale of our home.  Once she listed the property, she was able to get us an acceptable offer within 1 month.  We were very pleased since it normally takes several months to sell a property in our Ridgegate Community.  I guess I should not have been surprised since Erika's sold another property in my community pretty quick as well.  That is also another reason why we hired her since she has experience selling in Chino Hills and in our neighborhood.

I really appreciate everything that Erika and her team did for us.  Erika made everything easy and less stress for us.  She made sure everything is taken care of so that we don't worry about the transactions and that we can concentrate on getting everything on our side in order.  I will not hesitate to use her team in the future if I ever need to sell or buy a property.

We made the right choice in picking her to sell our home and could not be happier.  We highly recommend Erika.

My parents' property in Diamond Bar needed to be listed and being the only son who lives out of state I needed someone who we can trust and relied upon completely. There is nothing like being able to trust someone in today's business dealings and that is why we are so glad that we found Erika. She kept the whole process transparent and we were informed way ahead of time every step of the way during this process. She was patient when we needed time and when we had questions. She was kind and understanding when we had many special requests for a sick family member.  We closed escrow this month smoothly and we can not ask for anything more from an agent. Erika is certainly an excellent agent but what impressed us even more is that she has a wonderful and kind heart.

Thanks again for your help!

I tried selling my home on 2770 Saleroso Drive, in Rowland Heights through another real estate service initially and wasted over 4 months and could not sell it.  Then, I also tried selling it on my own and conducted open houses, did my own marketing and conducted my own private showings and still could not sell it. That’s when I decided to use Erika’s service.  Initially, I thought since she specializes in Chino Hills that I wanted to use a Rowland Heights realtor as I was very careful this time around in who I was going into contracting with.  I’m actually ecstatic that I went with Erika.  She and her team are really professional.  The marketing was amazing!  My property was advertised everywhere and I even received a status report showing all the thousands buyer views on a weekly basis!  This is what I call accountability for what they promise.  It took a lot of showings to sell my property and this is what I needed.  Erika was very careful with each buyer and she negotiated very well on my behalf.  Now I understand that getting the right agent is essential especially in today’s competitive market.  I will refer her to all my friends and family and I would highly recommend her to you as well.  I’m 120% Satisfied and I’m glad I finally sold my home!

We are first time homebuyers and we just barely getting settled into our new home.   There were multiple offers on the home and we were so happy when the seller chose our offer.  Erika sat down with us and really gave us good advice and information on the home buying process.  It really put us at ease.  It has been a long home buying process for us.  We have lost offers on multiple homes before and felt pretty discouraged going in, but we had a great feeling in dealing with Erika right off the bat.

The house is really wonderful.  We feel in love with the home online even before we saw the property.  Erika had a wonderful website that had some amazing pictures of the home.  She had this cool 3D tour that really detailed the interior of the home like I have never seen before!

Erika and her team really worked with us thru the entire process and we honestly would have been lost without their advice and experience.  They are without a doubt one of the most professional and honest real estate agents out there and we have dealt with several real estate agents in our home buying journey.  If you are thinking about buying or selling I would highly recommend calling Erika. 

My family and I trust her 110% and are really grateful for her help. 

Thanks Again!

I completed the sale of my house located at 1766 S. Orange Ave., Monterey Park, CA through Erika and her team.  We closed escrow on 7/15/15 and we had an extremely smooth experience with the closing of our home.  It’s always been our dream to move out of state where we are looking to retire andspend the rest of our lives there. Erika helped make our dreams come true and really gave us sound advise throughout the whole process of selling our home and guiding us through the transition of purchasing the out of state home.  Erika produced incredible brochures, a very professional promotional video and website. She coordinated my contingent purchase (contingent upon the sale of my Monterey Park Home) with my out of state agent and she really carried my transaction with care and detail in every step of the way as if the other escrow was her own.  I really appreciate how she made us feel very secure and well represented to see everything from our perspective. I am extremely happy to come across Erika and her extensive services.  She did an outstanding job with the marketing of my home and her team members are also truly amazing.  She beautifully staged my home which generated a lot of interest immediately and sale of our home shortly after. We are now living in our dream home and want to sincerely thank Erika and her team for all the hard work!

We sold our house and decided to purchase a bigger for our growing family. We attempted to purchase thru our real estate, who happens to be a friend. She introduced us to her trusted broker. It was the worst decision we ever made. We decided to give up and loose $11,000 + of deposit. If we did not do it, we would have been trapped in a loan that would have caused us more money. We decided to search thru Yelp and we found David and Erika of Remaxx. We were immediately introduced face to face with their broker Armond. On the first meet, they explained the process of getting approved for a mortgage loan in detail. We were guided by their team every step from the loan application all the way to the reciept of the keys to a much bigger house compared to the first one. We highly recommend these special people that is hard to find nowadays in the real estate business.

Erika and her team are great for buying or selling investment property in Chino Hill and Chino area!  I was very impressed with her knowledge of the surrounding areas, market rents and available rental properties.  I’m happy that she was able to get me into a good duplex in Chino and I feel it is one of the best properties for the value in the entire San Bernardino County.            

There was a lien on the property from the seller that took a little while to clear, but Erika and her team made sure that we didn’t move forward until we had clearance of the lien.  Erika’s fluency with Spanish also helped in dealing with the seller which made things run smoother in the transaction.      

I am very happy with Erika and her team and I know that they will be there for me for any future income property investments.  Their professionalism and service are outstanding and I recommend them to anyone 100%!

My family owned a 12 unit apartment building that we listed with Erika Shinzato and her team.   She exceeded all my expectations in the sale of the property. Initially, I was worried since I live out of town and the property is in Southern California.  Throughout the entire transaction, Erika and her team spent a lot of time over the phone with us and met with elderly relatives of mine in the LA area while taking the time to really make them feel comfortable.

Her team works efficiently and was able to sort through all the financial documents including profit and loss statements, tax returns, utility bills & lease documents, etc that was needed by the buyer's lender.  Erika also speaks Spanish fluently which really helped in dealing with some of the tenants during the escrow process.

Erika and her team helped us through the entire transaction from A-Z and we didn't even have to travel to Southern California during the process.  They put forth 120% effort in getting the units sold in record time and we sold above the asking price and above appraisal value for the property.  Erika and team are true professionals and their expertise in residential apartment units is very impressive.   I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
