"Your team took a burden from us and I thank you for that."
I want to take this moment to thank you for your professionalism and support with the sale of my father's house. I truly believe that you and Steve negotiated the best price possible for his house. Even though my brother had experience several times with buying and selling his homes by himself, when we tried this path with my father's house, we only received extremely low bids and marketing calls. We were also unaware of the extra trust paperwork that is needed for a trust sale. I appreciate the time you personally spent with us explaining the intricacies of being a trustee and moving through a real estate sale. I also want to thank Richard in your office who always answered my calls and explained the paperwork. I always felt I was in the "loop" knowing the progress of moving the sale forward.
This has been a difficult time for our family. My father was much loved. Your team took a burden from us and I thank you for that.
"Your team has gone beyond our expectation of customer service and continued to help us after the sale."
"We just want to thank you and the LaRoche team for making the purchase of our townhome such a smooth transaction! First being from out of state this could have caused many problems along the way, but whenever there was a question or concern your response by phone or email was immediate and professional. Fifteen minutes after the closing/final walk through you had quality painters/contractors available for bids for the work needed to be completed so my daughter could move in the following week. Your team has gone beyond our expectation of customer service and continued to help us after the sale. We will definitely recommend your team to anyone we know buying real estate in the southern California area!"
"We highly recommend the LaRoche Team.”
“The LaRoche Team was extremely professional in their one-on-one meetings with us and in their printed material. They were only a phone call away whenever we needed answers to a question or problem. Though their office is out of the area where our listing was, they knew the area and had a handle on who would be intetested in our type of property. Our home was on the market less than a week when we received our first offer. We highly recommend the LaRoche Team.”
"Terry and Steve were a huge help to me personally..."
In the early fall of 2012 I found myself as the Executor of an estate for a loved one who passed away unexpectedly. One of the tasks at hand was selling the real estate of the estate and remove items that were deemed unsellable. After interviewing numerous realtors, I met Steve and Terry LaRoche. I was immediately impressed at how carefully they listened and digested my situation with expertise but also with great sensitivity and empathy. Therefore, I decided to list with LaRoche Group. This proved to an excellent decision. The LaRoche Group uses a multi disciplined approach (multi-media listing methodology which includes social media) and this professionalism (excellent communication with the highest degree of integrity) resulted in my property being sold within a week and over my pricing objective. Additionally, Terry and Steve were a huge help to me personally by arranging details way outside the expected duties of a realtor. As such, I highly recommend the LaRoche Team for any real estate issues when one may require the need of true professional realtors.
“The LaRoche team is the best real estate team I have ever worked with."
“The LaRoche team is the best real estate team I have ever worked with. They were exceptional in every way and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to any one in need of ‘The Best’. They said what they could do and did it!!!!!!!”
"They were diligent, persistent, and worked steadily to complete this sale for my estate."
"The LaRoche Team listed the home, found a buyer, negotiated all the terms of the short sale, gave me written assurance that the estate would receive proceeds from the sale – and the estate was paid $30,000! (There was not sufficient time prior to the Trustee sale to obtain the attorney’s fees.) I have 35 years experience as a probate and estate planning paralegal and 25 years as a professional fiduciary and I am very impressed! I strongly recommend the LaRoche Team to anyone who needs to sell a home – whether on a short sale or otherwise. They were diligent, persistent, and worked steadily to complete this sale for my estate. They were simply amazing! My next property will definitely be listed with them."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you to both of you for making this happen."
It's official!! Recording has been confirmed by Debbie and we've received our check and closing statement and the buyer has picked up the keys. Thank you, thank you, thank you to both of you for making this happen. Merv is one very happy client and would recommend your office to anyone! Ken and I really appreciate your getting the statutory fees paid for us too (as do the beneficiaries!)
"You guys deserve the amazing reputation that you have..."
"Brigida and I wanted to write to say how grateful we are to you for taking care of the condo for us. It really was something that caused a lot of stress for us living so far away and being first time landlords and being able to finally sell it without it being a short sale and even making a few bucks (thanks to your graciousness) is really a boon for us. You guys deserve the amazing reputation that you have and I'm honestly shocked at how easy and quick everything went. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to pay you back for your kindness and work on this sale. All the best to you and the LaRoche Team and thank you, thank you, thank you once again!!"
"I am extremely happy that I met the LaRoche's and hope to do many more transactions in the coming years."
"In the short period of time that I have been working with Terry and Steve LaRoche I have never seen in my 25 years of being in the Real Estate business a more dedicated, hard working, and detailed oriented husband and wife team. They go out of their way to make sure all proper paperwork is in order to ensure all escrows close on time. They are head and shoulders above all brokers I have worked with throughout the years and that is the reason why they are continuously the top producers in all the Keller Williams offices. I am extremely happy that I met the LaRoche's and hope to do many more transactions in the coming years."
"On a scale of 1 - 5, the level of service provided by the LaRoche Team exceeds a 10!"
"On a scale of 1-5, the level of service provided by the LaRoche Team exceeds a 10! Your entire team was extremely efficient as I was kept updated regularly. There is nothing that you should have done differently. I’m very satisfied and would recommend you to my family and friends without hesitation. I also wanted to thank Terry and Jackie for everything they did to make this transaction go so smoothly."
"Your expertise is unwavering; you guys are awesome.”
“Your service was “top notch.” Your follow up was consistent and thorough. Anytime I called, you were available.
"The LaRoche Team is on top of their game. I can't imagine a better experience."
"Selling a house was a new adventure for me. The LaRoche Team was amazing and consistently reassuring! They were always available, followed through on all commitments and took extra time to answer all my questions and concerns. I especially enjoyed Terry's enthusiasm and excitement
she facilitated the sale of my house. In addition, they arranged and quickly coordinated needed repairs at the house. Because of their efforts, I had several full price offers on the house. The LaRoche Team is on top of their game. I can't imagine a better experience."
"...helped me dodge the foreclosure bullet."
The entire LaRoche Team deftly handled a time-sensitive and complicated probate sale transaction. The team’s pro-active problem solving skills helped the estate salvage the remaining equity in the family home, and helped me dodge the foreclosure bullet. I recommend the LaRoche Team. “
"Your integrity, positive attitude and professional knowledge are very impressive and inspiring."
"Thank you for your exceptional services helping us through the smooth transaction and best deal! Really appreciated it! You guys are simply the best! Your integrity, positive attitude and professional knowledge are very impressive and inspiring. We would highly recommend your services to others whenever chances arise. Thanks again, and wish you and all the best."
"I honestly would not change anything about the experience I had."
"Terry listened to everything I had to say. I am a 1-on-1 guy, and Terry was there whenever I had questions or concerns. The LaRoche Team was definitely the 'Go To' people and I greatly appreciate all of the communication. I would recommend them to my family and friends. I honestly would not change anything about the experience I had. I am one happy guy!"
"Terry and her team were authentic and helped me get through the probate process"
Terry and the team were great. I had over 50 real estate people contact me after my mothers passing. Terry and her team were authentic and helped me get through the probate process. They were kind and explained everything. I will refer if anyone needs a good real estate group.
"Terry & Steve were excellent, and as an out of state client, I had great communication."
The LaRoche Team was a 10 out of 10! Terry & Steve were excellent, and as an out of state client, I had great communication. I wish they had an office in Vegas! They were kind, compassionate, and helped me through a difficult situation. I was very pleased.
"I made the right choice hiring the LaRoche Team."
"I made the right choice hiring the LaRoche Team. Everyone was helpful and calming during a stressful time."
"Terry made it easy, just like she said she would."
"Thank you so much. Terry made it easy, just like she said she would."
"Thank you both for a seamless process in what was otherwise a very trying time."
"It is with a joyful heart that I write this, albeit overdue, note of thanks. The stones mean the world to me, as does the effort put forth by you both to 'make it happen.' It is my humble opinion you should adopt that as your vocation slogan. Thank you both for a seamless process in what was otherwise a very trying time. Please know you have my heartfelt recommendation. Thank you to your team or delivering the stones to their 'forever home.' "
"As such, we've worked with many realtors, and have found the LaRoche Team to be in a class of their own."
As professional fiduciaries with a thriving practice, our team sells several houses each year on behalf of the estates, trusts and conservatorships we administer. As such, we’ve worked with many realtors, and have found the LaRoche team to be in a class of their own. In addition to fundamentally understanding the intricacies of probate real property sales, they are aggressive (in a very positive way) in terms of taking charge and getting things done—quickly, purposefully and thoroughly. In our latest case with the LaRoche term, we were threatened with a trustee sale from the moment we were appointed as estate administrators. Terry and Steve immediately jumped in and helped us provide the proper notifications to the mortgage company, lined up contractors to restore what looked like a backyard swamp to a sparkling, well lighted pool, and even lined up an estate seller so we could clear the house of its contents and get in on the market post-haste. The result was that the house was sold quickly and at an attractive price, and the trustee sale was avoided—all to the substantial benefit of the estate’s heirs. At the end of the day, what more could you ask for from a realtor than that?
"Your personal services and courtesy, your understanding, kindness and efficiency were outstanding."
"Thank you for all your help and guidance in the sale of my sister's house. Your personal services and courtesy, your understanding, kindness and efficiency were outstanding. I truly believe my beautiful sister brought us together because you were exactly the kind of folks she would have gravitated to - kind, generous, thoughtful, caring, positive people. Your first class service made the burden of selling easier for me. I look forward to a continued friendship."
"I have worked with numerous in-state realtors over the past 25 years on various properties throughout the U.S. and to T, no one communicated as well as Steve, Terry and the entire LaRoche Team. I just want to say that this was the most stress-free, effortless, seamless process that I have ever engaged in when selling or buying a property."
When my brother passed away I had no idea how inundated I would become with requests from literally hundreds of realtors asking to represent my brother's Estate in Probate. I read through proposal after proposal after proposal, and the one that stood out above all others was from The LaRoche Team. The communication was nothing short of phenomenal. Every time I called Steve or Terry, if they didn't pick up the phone on the third or fourth ring, I'd receive a call back within five minutes. Every time I texted, I would receive an immediate reply with answers to my concerns or questions. I have worked with numerous in-state realtors over the past 25 years on various properties throughout the U.S. and to T, no one communicated as well as Steve, Terry and the entire LaRoche Team. I just want to say that this was the most stress-free, effortless, seamless process that I have ever engaged in when selling or buying a property. This particular project had every reason to be super complicated because it was a Probate piece of property that didn't even have a Certificate of Occupancy, as my brother had passed away unexpectedly with the home 95% completed. Steve and Terry are the ultimate professionals. They have a tremendous staff working under them. The work they did from beginning to end went above and beyond incredibly smooth. The LaRoche Team far surpassed what they promote on their website… They are simply the very best. In my book they are second to none, and I would recommend them to anyone who's looking to sell or buy a property in a heartbeat.
"Thank you for your help and professionalism on this case. We would recommend you to anyone!"
"Thanks again for your team's quick work to get the escrow closed on this sale. The sale happened so quickly and the client is relieved to have it all done. Thank you for your help and professionalism on this case. We would recommend you to anyone!"
"If you truly want to work with the best you will not hesitate to contract with the LaRoche team."
"Terry and Steve LaRoche are true professionals that make you feel like you are their number one client. I was truly impressed with their knowledge and professionalism. They look you directly in the eye when speaking to you and they ensure your complete understanding of the entire process. What also really impressed me that they listen to what you have to say and are happy to answer any and all questions. They consistently keep you timely updated throughout the entire process. They handled an estate sale for me and literally did all the work making my entire experience worry free. If you truly want to work with the best you will not hesitate to contract with the LaRoche team. My sincere thank you for a job well done."
"This has been so overwhelming and they jumped right in and took care of everything."
"I can't thank Steve & Terry enough. This has been so overwhelming and they jumped right in and took care of everything. I don't think I could have handled this without their help. I am so grateful.
"They kept me up to date every step of the process and really helped me with their clean out services."
"Terry, Steve & the team were very easy to work with. They kept me up to date every step of the process and really helped me with their clean out services. I am thankful for everyone's hard work."
"...Terry and her team were absolute pros who guided me through the process to get the best value for the property."
The LaRoche Team was wonderful to work with! When I was faced with the challenge of selling my aunt and uncle's home in Venice Beach through the probate court process, Terry and her team were absolute pros who guided me through the process to get the best value for the property.
"...I was very pleased with how adaptable everyone was to my schedule and being out of the country."
"I found the team to be great in terms of electronic and phone communication and I was very pleased with how adaptable everyone was to my schedule and being out of the country. Everything went much smoother than I expected in terms of coordinating paperwork before and during my time away. "
"I believe the integrity of a persons word should be something you can trust. What I can say about both Terry and Steve is, not only can you trust their word, but they truly care about their clients."
"I would like to express my gratitude for the amazing work of Terry and Steve LaRoche in selling my uncles' home. They walked me through the preparation for sale, probate process and sold my uncle's home one day after holding the open house. This is the second time I have been the administrator on a family members estate. Keller Williams, in my opinion is the top of the heap, when it comes to how their brokers take care of their clients needs. The LaRoche Team went above and beyond to sell the property and make the probate process as painless as possible. As the probate administrator, living out of state can add an extra layer of complications to the whole process. This is why it is imperative to have an agent you can trust to be in charge. From the first time I spoke with Terry about my uncle's property, she was very informative, kind, a great listener and answered all my questions. Each and every step of the process went just as Terry explained it to me. In the world we live in, often times people will say things they know you want to hear just to get your business. I believe the integrity of a persons word should be something you can trust. What I can say about both Terry and Steve is, not only can you trust their word, but they truly care about their clients. They will go the extra mile to ensure the best results for you! Unlike many real estate agents, with Terry and Steve LaRoche, it is not about just getting your business and their commission. They are professional, caring and honest. In the lead up to getting it ready to sell, there were a few complications. Not only did they resolve each issue in record time, they took the necessary steps with their professional connections, prior to contacting me with a plan to fix the issue. I can not begin to say how blessed I feel to have found and hired the LaRoche Team! I would highly recommend Terry and Steve's services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"They also brought their liquidation. They helped us go through my parents stuff and gave good ideas on what to do before the liquidation team cleaned the whole residence."
"From the very beginning, our first meeting with Terry and Steve was very professional, and my wife and I were comfortable with them the second we met. They understood what my wife and I were going through and what we have to go through. During the whole process, Terry and Steve were always easy to get a hold of. When my wife or I emailed them, they really responded quickly and always had the answers we needed. They also brought their liquidation team. They helped us go through my parents stuff and gave good ideas on what to do before the liquidation team cleaned the whole residence. My wife and I are very grateful to our attorney for recommending the LaRoche Team to us. We have never gone through this process before, and the LaRoche Team made it positive and less stressful, and I would highly recommend them to others."
"Thank you for making our experience with this process a non-stressful one."
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. You and your team are AMAZING. Thank you for making our experience with this process a non-stressful one. Thank you for caring and helping us with the sale of my parent's house and for you professionalism. You and your team are a special group of people.
"...the care shown to us by Terry and Steve and all the staff was exemplary."
Your team is the BEST …no the BEST EVER !! What more can I say. Julie and I are very happy. When we needed help because we were over our head with stress and consternation, Steve and Terry gave us valuable information to list and sell the house. The paperwork went through as smooth as possible, the care shown to us by Terry and Steve and all the staff was exemplary. We are thankful that we met them in our time of need and came through the closing as fast as possible.
"thank you so much for your diligence and perseverance..."
"Terry, Steve & the team, thank you so much for your diligence and perseverance in getting my Dad's house sold. It took great effort, knowledge and hard work to get the job done. Thank you!"
"I have dealt with several real estate agents in the past and Terry and Steve were the best."
"First of all, I have to emphasize that everyone was always pleasant and professional. I have dealt with several real estate agents in the past and Terry and Steve were the best. I truly feel that I have gained a friend in Terry and Steve. No matter what my dilemma or my issues, she was always in the best of moods, cheerful and positive. Always willing to help me in several issues that arose with the sale of my dad’s house. I will truly miss working with them and will definitely consider their services if I am ever in the need of a real estate agent. I will be more than happy to recommend them to friends and family.Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me through this hard time of my life."
"I would highly recommend The LaRoche team to anyone going through probate, and mine was no where near a simple cut and dry case."
"Terry and Steve were amazing to work with. They took a frustrated, frazzled estate administrator, me, and turned things around giving me confidence and a sense of control. Terry took charge, guided me through the process, helped me through the eviction, got the house sold and the escrow closed. I would highly recommend The LaRoche team to anyone going through probate, and mine was no where near a simple cut and dry case."
"Living on the other side of the country, I knew I could trust them to walk me through all of the details of house preparation for sale, marketing the house, and closing of the sale."
"Terry and Steve LaRoche rose to the top of a myriad of realtors who wanted to help me sell my cousin’s house in West Covina when I was unexpectedly left with the task of settling her estate. I live in Virginia; when I assessed the house and realized the amount of work that had to be done just to empty the house, much less ready it for sale, I was overwhelmed. I interviewed many realtors, but something about Terry and Steve and their organized approach to a difficult situation captured my attention. They had teams of people who immediately came to my assistance as I could only stay in California for a limited time. Before I left, I had made arrangements to have the house emptied, goods sold or carried away, and repairs made. I trusted them implicitly, and they did not disappoint me. Living on the other side of the country, I knew I could trust them to walk me through all of the details of house preparation for sale, marketing the house, and closing of the sale. They were friendly and always readily accessible by phone, text, and email. I could never have gotten through this process without their professional leadership and experience. Kind, fair, knowledgeable, understanding, thorough—these words describe Terry and Steve and their team."
"Terry, Steve and the team were there to help me from beginning to end."
"Everything was great. I am very happy with the LaRoche Team and their services. Terry, Steve and the team were there to help me from beginning to end. I appreciate the people they sent over to make repairs. They did a fantastic job. Thank you."
