— What Our Clients Have To Say —

  • I had awesome home buying experience early this month with Alan Austin from Market group reality. I just opened an Yelp account to write this well deserved review about Alan, who made my most expensive purchase easy and smooth. Alan is superbly knowledgeble, very friendly and thoroughly professional. As a first time home buyer, my wife and I had lots of questions which he patiently answered 24x7 basis until the escrow closed. He not only brought on board one of the best home inspector but also coordinated few other inspections when we were out of town. He was pretty much top of everything for all the deadlines, bringing down the selling price significantly with step by step negotiation and a smooth closing right on time. I think Alan and his team (Alex) made our home buying process super easy and satisfied, the best decision i made besides choosing the right house. I will not think twice to recommend him to any of my friends to buy or sell home in future.

  • Being a first time home buyer I was super scared!  I am so thankful to have had Alan to guide me along the way.  He never made me feel like I asked too many questions or that they were stupid.  I felt like he had my best interests at heart.  I started to work with some other agents and they made me feel like I wasn't buying an expensive enough place for them to really put in much effort.  I am not paid by Yelp, I truly just purchased my first condo and Alan was my agent, who I highly recommend.

  • One of the best decisions I made when recently buying my home was using Alan.  Alan was so professional and did an amazing job in keeping everything and the seller in line and on schedule. I can't recommend Alan any more.  He did an amazing job!

  • Alan did a spectacular job of selling my Santa Monica town home. It was only on the market a week or so, but he masterminded the public showing to one Sunday afternoon. We had over 14 good offers and the house sold $100,000 over asking price. I did everything I was told to do;  mostly get rid of stuff, but it was by no means a dream home.  He listened to me for almost 2 years talk about selling, with no promise of doing it, and gave me advice and support. I trust him completely.  He is the best real estate secret I know.

  • Alan Austin is an outstanding real estate agent and I can't recommend him highly enough.   I intend to work with Alan again when I buy another home in the future and would strongly recommend that anyone reading this do the same. My condo purchase was complicated by flaws in the property discovered during the inspection process, including a square footage discrepancy and a potential HOA violation.  Without Alan's assistance and diligence, I would not have noticed both of those issues.  With Alan's assistance, however, we were able to negotiate a satisfactory price reduction.  Alan constantly took the initiative and went above and beyond to make the deal happen, including finding contractors for the seller to fix the issues with the home.  This deal couldn't have happened without Alan and working with him was a very smart financial choice.

  • Alan, you are awesome. The most fantastic real estate agent in California.  You got me offers a few days  after I signed a listing. You sold it immediately for a higher price that the property was listed.  You were there every step of the transaction. Answered the phone/my e-mail questions A.S.A.P.  Polite, knowledgeable, experienced, tactful & helpful.  You made the sale so easy for me.  I appreciate all you've done & will look to you when I'm ready to purchase. I will recommend you to everyone I know interested in the real estate market.  Many thanks.

  • Alan is a fantastic realtor that I would absolutely recommend. He's professional, communicative and is very knowledgeable regarding the area that he covers. He helped me submit very strong offers and gave me great suggestions at what I could do to enhance my offer in such a competitive market. Alan was on top of everything every step of the way from when I got my offer accepted to close of escrow. I have a busy work schedule so I really appreciated Alan's efficiency and experience.

  • My experience with Alan was seamless. He handled the process fluidly. My property ended up selling for almost nine percent over the asking price. The way in which he received the initial offers and then countered each one was graceful and polite, and, ultimately, resulted in my property being purchased for what the market was willing. Aside from all of that, he was easy to communicate with and had attention to all details. His performance is what I would expect from someone who is at the top of his game. I was lucky to have him.

  • Alan was great. As first time home buyers navigating the crazy LA market, we needed a lot of help, which Alan very capably handled. Highly recommend!
    Felicia and Sam G.
  • Alan is outstanding. He is knowledgeable and experienced, and he knows how to handle a transaction in a way that's smooth and that gets the most for his client. Alan's analysis of the market conditions in my area and his valuation of my property proved to be more accurate than those from other brokers who work exclusively in my neighborhood. He is a star!
    Ali S.
  • We chose Alan as the agent for our purchase because of the wonderful experience we had with him on our previous sale. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend his services.
    David L. and Margaret J.
  • Alan was excellent to work with and he made the home buying experience seemless and enjoyable. Alan was always available when we had questions and was knowledgable about the process. We had a complicated process where the seller was at times uncooperative and Alan helped us navigate through it all. We would recommend Alan without hesitation to anyone looking to buy a home in the Los Angeles area.
    Michael M. and Maria A.
  • Working with Alan was one of the best decisions we made when we started the home search process. His advice was indispensable and he's an absolute pleasure to work with.
    Brent Y. and Mouzam M.
  • Alan Austin was detailed and skilled. He was very professional and did a first rate job selling my home. He will always be my real estate agent.
    Jason S.
  • Alan was very knowledgeable and professional. He made himself completely available to us throughout the process and gave us sound advice that resulted in a very successful sale.  We would very highly recommend Alan.
    David L. and Margaret J.
  • Alan is a very patient broker who explained our options every step of the way. Even when we wanted to back out after our due diligence he assured us it would be no problem. That gave us the confidence to move forward with another house which was not only better for less expensive!
    Hugh and Coco C.
  • I've purchased and sold properties for the past 10 years. I have never worked with a realtor as trustworthy as Alan. He has consistently advocated for what's best for me, his client. A rare combination of creativity, honesty, patience and assertiveness.
    Mark A.
  • Alan made my wife and I feel like we were in great hands throughout the whole process. His professionalism, experience and quick (if not immediate) reply times set the bar far higher than any other Realtors we've talk to over the last few years.
    Ben B.
  • Alan was our agent when buying our first home. He was very nice, knowledgeable, and patient. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was always available to meet or talk, even late at night or early in the morning. We felt confident with our real estate transaction when dealing with Alan. Thanks again for all the help!
    Nathalie B. and Laurent C.
  • I had the privilege of working with Alan Austin in purchasing my first home. When we were looking to buy a home, both my husband and I were looking for a realtor who is knowledgeable, honest, and definitely not too pushy. Committing to purchase a home is already a huge step so we were looking for someone who can support us through the process and not be a headache to deal with. Alan was wonderful to work with. He has many years of experience so they are experts in their field. He is an excellent and efficient communicator who responded to all our questions promptly. He guided us through the entire process. He presented us with the facts and gave us time to make our own decision. We will definitely use Alan for our next sale/purchase. Highly recommended!!!
