Client Reviews

I’m very grateful to have many wonderful clients, and I just thought I would share what a few of them are saying about working with me below. Additionally, please don’t hesitate to let me know if you would ever like to speak with some of my clients to hear firsthand!

Where do we start? Thanking you for all you have done for our family seems like such an understatement. You handled three extremely difficult real estate deals for us in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills in less than six weeks not just somehow but beyond our expectations. You handle pressure with that big smile and create such a peaceful atmosphere that what should have been a stressful time for our family was actually a pleasure. Your integrity, confidence work ethic and professionalism is just a small part of what makes you different. I have to honestly say, I have never met anyone quite like you. I don’t know how you do it but you make it seem effortless. I know better!  The emails that show you working tirelessly though the night only to have a solution in the morning. Thank you Brett for all you have done and continue to do for our family.

Brett exceeded our expectations every step of the way (even after closing). We had complete trust in Brett and his team, and knew we were in the right hands when negotiating for our first home. He also has an unparalleled knowledge of the market and works extremely hard to meet his client’s needs. We will be clients for life with Brett.

My wife and I have bought and sold many homes in our lives. We never have had the pleasure of working with a realtor who was as knowledgeable, conscientious, thoughtful, accommodating, hard-working, patient, and friendly as Brett Raskin. Brett makes one feel like they are his only client. The Raskin Group itself comprises an exceptional team of real estate professionals with the expertise to move purchases/sales from the initial contact with buyers/sellers through the stages of offers, counter-offers, loan acquisition and approval, appraisals, inspections, remediation, escrow, and close. The Group goes out of its way to help, even if such help is not necessarily “in their job description.” Communication, which is essential in this business, was exemplary. We always knew exactly what the status of our deal was, including what “homework” we or the other party was expected to complete, and when. Do yourself a favor, work with Brett!

Brett Raskin recently represented me in both the sale of my condo and the purchase of my new condo.  Besides being the most helpful and giving person, he also “knew” me immediately and found my new home in one try!  He knew what I was looking for and found the perfect home for me, and more importantly, in the area and price-range that I was looking for.  He knows how demanding my professional life is and never wasted one moment of my time.  He stepped in and represented me in meetings and appointments when he knew I just didn’t have the time to make it myself.  His entire office is incredibly friendly, professional and extremely helpful.  They explained things when I didn’t have a clue what I was signing and re-arranged everything so that it was convenient for me to move, in my very limited free time. Buying and selling a home is a difficult and stressful period of time for the owner and seller and Brett and his team made it a much more pleasant experience than it could have been.  IF and WHEN I ever sell this home and decide to move again, Brett will be my first call.

We worked with Brett on the sale of our townhouse and purchase of a new single family house in Santa Monica.  Our deal was very complicated as the market of Santa Monica did not like “contingency deals”. Brett helped us navigate the process through his professionalism, tenacity and a keen attention to brokering the transactions. Brett shielded us from stress while maintaining a sense of humor. We also appreciated that he always supported us in our wishes throughout the negotiating process. We love our new home and are not planning on leaving any time soon, but if we do, we would definitely contact Brett.

“Brett and his team made my first home purchase a seamless and memorable process. From the initial introduction through closing, they were extremely knowledgeable, high attentive and very focused on finding the perfect home from both a fit and value perspective. Living across the country from the purchase location, Brett ensured I was comfortable with all aspects of the transaction and went above and beyond countless times to accommodate both the distance and time difference. Furthermore, through his broad professional network, he was able to navigate and assist me with other aspects of a home purchase which resulted in a more accretive transaction. Brett was referred to me by a friend who had a similar experience in working with him. I would highly recommend Brett to anyone and look forward to working with him on my future property purchases.”

“Brett has been hands down amazing to work with. He is responsive, knowledgeable, and professional in all interactions, but what sets him apart is his extremely genuine personality, and his ability to not only connect with us as buyers, but to connect with the sellers as well. When Brett helped us buy our home, the time he spent connecting with the seller gave us an advantage in a hectic bidding war, and proved to be invaluable when an issue came up during closing and a friendly relationship with the seller was key to keep our deal going. The work ethic and dedication of his team was unparalleled. As an example, Brett was able to deliver our purchase contract to the seller just hours after getting into a car accident on the 405. We obviously were not expecting that type of commitment, but Brett delivered this time and every time after that. In the end, we were thrilled with the deal Brett negotiated on our behalf, and are now proud homeowners in the exact area of Santa Monica in which we wanted to live. We would happily use Brett again in a future buy or sell, and would enthusiastically recommend him to our friends and family.”

“Brett represented us regarding a Westwood condo purchase during May 2016.  I have worked with other R.E. Brokers previously on many other properties and have concluded that Brett is one of the best overall real estate professionals I have employed.  Knowledgeable, timely, engaging and a strong sense of representing his client’s interest are key characteristics I attribute to Brett.  Not only did he procure and negotiate a condo purchase that met our stringent requirements he provided extensive time and expertise in reviewing the HOA budgets and accounting.  Unlike most others he sincerely put the interest of his client above his own.  I would highly recommend Brett regarding representation for buying/selling real estate.”

Bob Shields

“As a first time home buyer, Brett was incredible to work with! I had a long list of requirements and he found me exactly what I wanted. He walked me through all the steps and made sure I got the best deal.He’s incredibly knowledgeable about the market and extremely reliable. There’s no doubt, I will continue to work with him in the future and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a perfect new home.”

Sunny Sohrabian

“We relocated from the East Coast and found Brett as our real estate agent. He was first class in every respect.  He is extremely smart, knowledgeable, helpful and professional.  He cared about making sure we did not only find a house, but found a home.”

Michael and Michelle Swanenburg

“We highly recommend Brett to everyone looking to buy or sell a home. Brett couldn’t be further from the typical “transaction-oriented” real estate agent. He effectively served us in the role of real estate consultant, leveraging his extensive deal experience to provide advice and guidance along every step of the home purchasing process. Brett was highly responsive, detail oriented, professional and, most importantly, ethical and honest with us. He actually listens to his clients to help them meet both their geographic and economic real estate objectives. An overall pleasure to do business with.”
