Real Estate Testimonials

Client Feedback From Recent Home, Townhouses and Condo Sales.

Find out what Santa Monica, Brentwood and West Los Angeles real estate broker Gary Limjap’s clients are saying about their real estate transaction experience and how they benefited from his 25+ years of experience.

When my mother had to move out of her house in Santa Monica, she asked me (her son, who lives in Boston) to make arrangements. I spoke to several recommended realtors in Southern California. Gary Limjap clearly knew more about the Santa Monica market than any of the others.

After 75 years of neglect, the house was very much in need of repair. Nevertheless, Gary put the house on the market at $100,000 above what other realtors said the house would bring. Even then, he said that the market would determine the price of the house.

He posted the house on the Internet, and a few days later, he held an open house over the weekend. Within a week he had almost ten offers.The house was sold for cash at $120,000 over the asking price.

During the entire process, Gary went above and beyond all my expectations, in preparing the house, shepherding the paperwork, etc.  Gary assured me from the beginning that he had arranged several sales for clients from out-of-town and that I would not have to come to Santa Monica. It is a testament to his professionalism, his support network, and his continuing efforts after the sale itself that this was indeed true.

I am pleased to recommend Gary Limjap. Simply put, he’s the best realtor I’ve ever worked with.

I sold my Brentwood townhouse in early 2013.  Gary Linjap had the listing and we priced it slightly under market.  He had the broker’s open/caravan on Tuesday and by Thursday I had about 10-12 offers, 5 of which were all cash! Gary handled everything with great aplomb and always answered my questions and e-mails quite promptly.  He is the King of Condos as far as I’m concerned.  His follow-up after the sale has been remarkable and steady.  The fact that I have a real estate license which is current but not active helped a bit as I am familiar with residential transactions.  I haven’t used it in so long and there are so many new rules/laws that he had to bring me current with all the details that were not in place when I was active so many years ago.  Now if only I could get him to pay my long term capital gains tax that would be unbelievable!!!

When I put my condo up for sale, Gary was the first broker I contacted. I knew Gary from previous sales in my building and the surrounding area.
He is very cordial and easy to work with, but most important he is very knowledgeable and his marketing ability skills are the best.
If you are thinking about selling or buying a house or condo, I suggest you call Gary first.

I’ve recently closed escrow on my second condo in Santa Monica and utilized Gary’s services on this one as well. I trust his judgement and recommendations when making difficult decisions. He is a pleasure to work with and will undoubtedly use his services again in the future!

We’re glad we had Gary Limjap as our real estate agent. He is patient, honest, and answers his phone. We have recommended him to all of our friends.

So Family

We asked Gary to be our real estate agent because he knew our neighborhood and had sold several units in our townhouse complex over the years. He was the right choice. Not only were his depth of knowledge and experience a necessity in the 2010 market, but his professionalism and integrity were also essential as he guided us through the complex process of selling our home. He found us the right buyer. We are very satisfied with our sale and with Gary’s service to us. Thanks to Gary, everything worked out the way we hoped.

Judith M.

Our property was on the market for over seven months with no prospects on the horizon. Gary took control of the situation and within one week sold our property over the asking price (during this depressed economy). Phenomenal job/results! Can’t recommend him enough.

Stephanie T.

Gary Limjap is highly knowledgeable in his field, extremely personable, appropriately aggressive and energetic, very effective, highly honest! He works very hard for his clients. He helped me sell my Santa Monica property quickly – at a time when the market was not fully in my favor.  I would definitely seek his assistance in any future real estate transaction.  He is a trustworthy professional.

Dr. Jeanne B.

It was a pleasure to work with Gary who is a true professional in every sense of the word. His prompt attention to detail, excellent communication skills and a very effective marketing plan, produced the exact results we desired.  The quick sale of our home left both the buyer and seller feeling that they had each gotten their desired outcome.

Donna and David K.

Gary gave our property maximum exposure, which we feel accelerated the sales process considerably.  Once in escrow, Gary did a great job of making the transaction as painless as possible.

Tom and Gina H.

Susan and I wanted to thank you for all your good work on our behalf, in the last several months. We appreciate your efforts and would highly recommend you to any future clients. Gary worked with us in finding an apartment building to purchase. He worked very patiently with us even at times when he might not have agreed with our decisions.  Gary is a good communicator; he is always prompt in providing information, answering questions, and finding out facts.  We always had a feeling that Gary was, in fact, working with us. Gary was instrumental in helping us achieve our real estate investment goal. We applaud both your professionalism and excellent follow through.

Pier L.

I am extremely satisfied with the purchase of our property and we are also grateful of your assistance as our agent. Your job was very professional with a high level of reliability and honesty.  During the process of buying our place, my wife and I felt that you were always on our side. Thanks.

Thank you for such a professional sale of our property. We chose you because you demonstrated a strong marketing plan and awesome drive.  Your integrity and 48-hour timeframe in finding a buyer are unbeatable.

Glen and Tina B.

You made our first time buying experience easy, pleasant ad enjoyable.  You answered our endless questions with self-assuredness and knowledge that only comes from a real professional.  I would recommend you without hesitation.  You are a real estate gem.

Ben and Lilli L.

You were great when it came to helping me out with buying my new place.  You went the extra step when others wouldn’t.  I know because one of my co-workers had similar issues when closing and their Realtor failed to help out.  By the way, I just recommended you to a close friend.

Rick W.

Gary helped us find and purchase a home that should have been out of reach for us.  His research, tenacity and plain hard work made it possible.  He is extremely hard working and focused on his clients’ goals and literally spares no expense or effort to see them realized.  We unquestioningly recommend him.

Eric and Lisa B.

We appreciate your fast callbacks and answers to our many questions.  You kept the process moving forward through many glitches and made it easy for us as you handled the frustrations and left us free to get ready to move.  It was painless for us and I would recommend your services to anyone.

Al and Renna V.

I used Gary on the sale and purchase of my home many years ago and again on my most recent sale and purchase.  His efficiency and professionalism ensured that all transactions were completed smoothly.  I will have no hesitation in recommending my friends, clients and anyone who wishes to have competent advice on Real Estate.”

Steven B.

Living out of state and having to sell my mother’s home following her death, posed a difficult and emotional situation for my family.  When I chose Gary, as the sales agent, we were unaware of his knowledge, expertise and tenacity.  We found out quickly how qualified he is.  Within days, the property was sold.  Gary followed the sale in detail and communicated regularly as to the progress.  Thanks to Gary’s experience, caring and dedication he helped my family through a very difficult time.

H. Moore

We have moved several times but we have never had such a wonderful support and service as we experience with Gary! He displayed immense vitality in every aspect of the sale and was always there for us when we needed him.  He comes with the highest recommendation for anyone who may have the privilege of Gary’s real estate services.  We are very privileged to be able to call him our friend.

Fritz and Maurice G.

From the very beginning — presenting his marketing plan, giving us advice on pricing and helping us get ready to show our place, Gary shared his experience, wisdom and good humor. He really knows the market. He got us through the rough patches with professionalism and resourcefulness. We came out better than we hoped, all because of Gary’s skill. He is a also a delightful human being! We recommend him highly.

Judith Meyer and David D.

Gary did a great job. We were very pleased with his professional knowledge and personal service from start to finish.

Lukas R.

Gary was a tremendous help to me while selling my condo in Brentwood. I was out of town for much of the time my condo was being sold and Gary took care of everything. From having the unit staged, to signing papers and even meeting workers, Gary was there. He made the process of selling my condo effortless.

Annette M.

Gary Limjap first represented me about three years ago by selling a town house in Santa Monica. This property entailed a number of complicated issues involving a difficult property manager and a hostile, uncooperative tenant. In spite of these problems, Gary persevered and got the property sold at a better price than I expected. I did not forget the excellent work he did.

When the opportunity arose for me to sell a residential property in Beverly Hills, I immediately called Gary and asked him to represent me with this property. He took charge of the project and did a superb professional job. We ended up getting nineteen overbids and finally sold the property for $250,000 over listing with an all cash 15 day escrow.  I would not call anyone but Gary for any west side projects when I need a true professional realtor.

Philip S.

Gary is THE BEST and committed to the community. He provides expert guidance and top service. A top pro and great resource, year in and year out.

Lyne N.

My wife and I were new to California and needed help finding a home. Gary’s professionalism and experience with the area made us comfortable with trusting him on this very important decision. He guided us through the entire buying process and followed through on each step to make sure it was progressing smoothly and timely. Gary is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out so when it came time to sell our home he is the only Real Estate Agent we considered.

Rich C.

I’ve known Gary many years and have always seen him put a great deal of care and service into each and every project he is hired on. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking to sell their West Los Angeles home or condo.”

Ron L.

Gary will tell you exactly how it is for your best interest. He will not push you just to make a sale. And he continues to be your friend whether you buy or not!

Terri O.

Gary has been very helpful to me and my family over the years. He’s effective, realistic and very personable.

Thomas H.

I have staged numerous homes for Gary and they have always sold quickly and at a great price… He gets results which is what you want when working with a real estate agent. He is familiar with the Westside and knows how to price a property right plus his marketing materials are top notch… he uses all methods available including YouTube and Twitter… he makes it happen!

Kathy N.

Gary is the complete professional. He’s exceptionally good at what he does. He is thorough, knowledgeable, creative and diplomatic. He has great enegry and an even greater sense of humor.

Gloria N.

I live and work in the same community that Gary has been selling real estate in for 30 years. He has a thorough knowledge of the business, the various neighborhoods, and the process of valuation.

Ten years ago I moved our office to Wilshire Boulevard and a short time later Coldwell moved their local office to that same location; so beyond our working relationship our paths have crossed many many times. Each time he has been gracious and straight forward in our conversations no matter what the subject.

If you are considering retaining a residential broker you would be well represented if Gary Limjap was that broker.

Sheldon L.

We have relied on Gary’s expertise to guide us through numerous real estate transactions involving both primary residences and investment properties. He has always delivered outstanding service and results. We would recommend him without hesitation to first-time buyers or veteran property owners alike!

Ted B.

Gary did a great job in helping us to find our own home. He listened to our needs and showed us places which fitted us. Thanks for your help.

Alfred P.

I feel fortunate that we worked with Gary to sell our home in Santa Monica. He took us through the process expertly, considered our feelings, and guided us to making what I believe were the best decisions.

Brian B.

Gary is the best! He sold the home my husband grew up in. It was quick and easy! 7 bids in 11 days, CASH! It was a great pleasure working with Gary. Thank you so much!
