Cesi Pagano

  • Cesi listed and sold my home

      Cesi team worked well together! Their professionalism and persistence in keeping up with all the details of selling and buying a home were comforting and effective! We thank you , The Brown Family Tamara ❤️

    • Cesi listed and sold my home

        Cesi reached out immediately and connected us with Margaret who took the lead on both selling/buying. We chose her to do both as her professionalism and efficiency in completing all tasks throughout the process was promptly evident&refreshing. It was a super fun experience and we highly recommend Team Cesi. To top it off, our house warming gift was so well thought out for all members of family, our taste and even our dog Hazel Grace. 👍👍 Thank You !!!

      • Cesi showed me homes

          I was involved in a real estate transaction where Cesi Pagano represented the seller. After the close of the deal and seller moving out, they decided to take many fixtures with them. These items were spelled out in the contract to remain with the property. I contacted the agent after realizing the items were removed and she passed on the message to the seller. The communication got cloudy and Cesi did not make any effort to mediate the situation as she was supposed to. Per her own account (shown in a text message she sent me) she stated that she's just a messenger b/w her client and I and didn't offer much help to resolve the issue. Here are the summary of the events leading up to this complaint: 1- I initially asked for the items (mirrors, tv mounts, blinds, etc. ) to be returned to the property. 2- There was no resolution there and since I didn't want my move-in date to be impacted I went ahead and purchased new items and arranged professional installations. 3- Cesi directed the seller to tresspass / break into my property, and dump some items w/o proper identification of items or hand-off ONLY AFTER I provided them with actual Amazon receipts of purchased items AND asked the agent to let the seller know he's not allowed in my property. 4- Cesi admitted that she directed the seller to trespass my property through an email sent by her attorney. 5- All along, I never asked for money from Cesi. I understand she's just an agent. I asked her to do her job, as her client clearly breached the contract.  6- Now I have filed a civil suit against the seller and I believe this is due to unwillingness on behalf of Cesi to mediate the situation as she's supposed. 7- Again,  I'm not seeking any financial compensation from the agent .

        • We just completed the sale of our home with Cesi Pagano & Associates. We were so lucky to have been referred to Cesi. We had heard great things but now can say we have experienced them first hand. Not having sold or purchased a home in 21 years Cesi guided us through all the ups and downs with ease. She was looking out for us every step of the way and that is an important asset in a realtor.Cesi has a great team of associates like Pam, Margaret and Gordana and many more that were always on call to address any concerns we had. It was our pleasure to have dealt with them and we would give Cesi and her team 11 stars if we could!

        • Margaret Shepherd was our agent and was always two to three steps ahead of us but always had our backs at the same time. We have moved many times and Margaret was the best agent weve ever had. She found us a home we love within a few hours of looking at homes with her. Then she listed our home and it was under contract within 6 days. We closed on both homes within two days of each other. Too, she is part of the amazing Cesi Pagano Team and they all function like a well-oiled machine. If you are looking for a group of professional, kind (but tough if needed) give them a call.

        • I cant say enough about what a fantastic partner Cesi is when you need an outstanding realtor. I have worked with Cesi on multiple properties, both buying and selling. She not only makes the process as simple as can be, she acts as a true consultant to be sure your transactions make good business sense. My investments are too valuable to risk on someone who gives me a free notepad on my doorstep. Cesi will be my go-to for real estate invents every time.

          - Denise B., Aliso Viejo & Laguna Niguel
        • Cesi and her team have a reputation for getting the job done. I recently had the pleasure of experiencing their professionalism firsthand, when they sold my home in just a few weeks. Having relocated out of the area, it was comforting to know Cesi would be responsible for making the sale and handling the many necessary details on my behalf. The listing, sale, and close of escrow went through without a hitch. I would recommend Cesi and her team without any hesitation. I only wish she relocated with me, so she could represent me again in the future!

          - Pam J., Aliso Viejo Seller
        • Cesi and her team are incredibly wonderful! Her team's stellar process is well-oiled and unmatched by any other real estate team that I've ever worked with. Her negotiating skills and her ability in getting listings sold for such great values and getting offers accepted in such a competitive marketplace is incredible, and I will definitely always be utilizing her services. She has created a client for life in me!

          - Amit S.
        • Cesi Pagano is leaps and bounds above her competition in the service she provides, professionalism, knowledge of the area and contacts/relationships that she has out there. She truly cares about her clients and her negotiation skills are second to none! She has sold three of our last houses. The last two where in changes markets and we were very happy with the final numbers. Cesi is always accessible and you are her main priority even though she has many other clients that she is work for you feel like you are her only one! Now that in itself is amazing! If you are looking to rent, sell or purchase a home, townhouse or condo you HAVE to call Cesi Pagano!

          - Jennie W.
        • We've known Cesi & her team now for almost 10 years. She sold our first home & has helped us buy our 2nd. Both transactions were completed flawlessly with very little stress.

          - Kathie M.
        • Cesi is the consummate professional. She and her team have excellent communication skills. They kept us updated almost daily, answered all questions quickly and were extremely willing to help with everything, including providing an excellent stager that made our empty home look awesome! I would highly recommend Cesi and her team for any real estate needs. They are number one in all aspects. They also take time to explain every detail so everything is clear from the very start to the end!

          - Linda Perez
        • Cesi and Her Team were terrific. They kept us up to date on everything that was going on with the sale of our condo, even being out of state. I have been a client of Cesi's for over 10 years, and have never been disappointed. She and her team are so professional and have been excellent in communicating. I know she has clients with more expensive properties but she always treated me as an important client. I was never disappointed
