    • Love Ed, Michelle and the team. Always great working with them and would absolutely recommend them.

      - Dominik G
    • Ed and his team are wonderful to work with and add such an amazing, standout, personal touch to real estate!

      - Lisa C
    • Tina got us the house that we are living in right now. She also got my daughter her dream home a few months ago. She was a great negotiator, was very responsive and always on top of everything no matter what it was or who it was - including resolving issues with either a plumber, banker, escrow officer, or insurance agent. Tina deserves 5 stars!

      - Tracy L
    • Ed Kaminsky and the Kaminsky Real Estate Group made my recent selling experience feel completely effortless. From our first meeting Ed showed me that his experience in the industry gave him insight on th best marketing tactics for the area. My wife and I were selling our home in Hermosa Beach and were in a rush to enjoy our retirement in Lake Arrowhead. This is where Ed stepped in. Everything was scheduled and completed very quickly as we planned to go to market and in fact our home sold within days! Could not be happier with this team.

      - Bruce R
    • Ed and his team are professional, knowledgeable and work hard to achieve an optimal outcome. I highly recommend working with Ed.

      - Terrence B
    • My husband and I used Ed to purchase our second home. His negotiating skills and knowledge of the South Bay is the best by far. Coupled with the fact that he has a full time staff working with him, there was always someone there to assist us with any questions or concerns we had. He was always there every step of the way and we are so grateful for his service. We will continue to refer him to our friends and family and he will be our first call should we decide to move.

      - Maria Hatorri
    • Working with Tina was the most wonderful experience imaginable from start to finish. She is smart, punctual, responsive, diligent, thorough, and incredibly good at her job. During the house search she quickly learned our needs and interests and objectively guided us toward properties uniquely fitting to them. I was amazed how well she knew the market and how quickly she was able to guide us to the perfect house for us. During escrow she explained every step and answered every question (we had many!!!) quickly and thoroughly. She checked in exactly the right amount to ensure we knew the next step or action we were supposed to take. We also had one concerning finding from the home inspection and she took care of everything by setting up appointments for me with multiple experts to evaluate the issue - she left no rock unturned until I was satisfied with the diagnosis and still wanted to move forward with the house. Now we are homeowners, and I cant imagine going through any of the process without Tina and her team by my side, educating and supporting me every step of the way. I will go back to Kaminsky Real Estate again and again!

      - Luke W
    • Ed Kaminsky and his whole Team were OUTSTANDING! They were all very professional and a pleasure to work with. They made the task of selling our home as easy as it possibly could be. I would HIGHLY reccomend their Team to anyone who is looking for a professional and knowledgeable Realtor to buy or sell a home

      - Amy E
    • The Kaminsky Team (Ed, Rachel, Katie, and Michelle) allowed us to sell our father's house quickly and easily despite the fact that none of us lived nearby. They were extremely organized and efficient in every aspect from the listing to the closing

      - Lori C
    • "First off, I'm not great on a computer, never write reviews and really don't have time, but after working with the Kaminsky Real Estate Group I had to take the time to give them a great review. I want others considering buying or selling to have an experience like we did!My wife and I had been looking casually for a home for at least a year, and walked into one of Ed's listings. The home was out of our price range, but we loved the house, and thought he and his team were great. After having a great conversation with them about the market, etc. we decided to list our home with them, and buy another home. Selling is an emotional process, and time consuming and they were so detailed and diligent through the entire process. The timing really had to be perfect, as we needed to be out of our home and in another home around the same time. Ed and his team, worked hard to make this happen and we'll be forever grateful. It took a lot of time, negotiations, and back and forth but we couldn't be happier and appreciate all the time, and energy that was put into both of our deals. Ed Kaminsky is great, but so is everyone we worked with in his office. They are all very professional, hardworking and detailed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. HIRE ED and his TEAM!"

      - Matt O
    • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ed Kaminsky and his team of experts in the purchase of our 2nd home. We had worked with agents in the past in a casual manner and but felt thay lacked attention to detail, and follow through. They were nice, but not prompt at responding or answeringour questions and its very important to us that people say what they mean and do what they say. Our first purchase was in Lake Arrowhead with a wonderful agent but when the time came to purchase in the South Bay we interviewed a few and felt that Ed Kaminsky and his team had the best follow through, information and responsiveness. He and his team were SUPER informative, and on top of every aspect of our transaction. I cant say enough about Eds expertise, and his amazing and qualified staff of employees. They all showed professionalism with each and every phone call, email, and question we had and were very pleasant and friendly. Real Estate can be confusing and stressful and they literally handled everything and TOOK SO MUCH OF OUR STRESS AWAY. What a relief! When it comes time to move, or purchase another home there is no doubt who we will call and we look forward to using them again!

      - Michele M
    • I have recommended Tina to multiple friends and they are all as happy with their experience as I am. She's very knowledgeable of the area and really understood what we were looking for.

      - Allison G
    • When it came time to sell our home in Hermosa Beach, we knew there were literally hundreds of agents to chose from. We interviewed 3 and then Ed and his team were last. It was night and day difference. Ed and his team took charge from the very get go - we made some small cosmetic changes to the home to get it ready for an open house weekend, and within 1 week, we had 3 offers to chose from. Ed was systematic in his approach to the negotiations, and ended up getting us over asking with very favorable terms from the buyer. His team handled the transaction seamlessly. At the day of closing, we actually met the buyers at the house, handed them the spare keys, walked through all of the 'need to knows' about the house and the appliances etc. and they expressed to us how helpful Ed's team was with them throughout the process as well, even though he wasn't representing them. My wife and I have already recommended Ed to some friends that have had similar experiences, and we will continue to refer him and his team. They are simply the best.

      - Gary M
    • Ed is the most knowledgeable and best Realtors in LA. If you want excellent customer service and the best Real Estate experience. Call Ed

      - Jim G
    • We have been working with Ed and his team since 2011. They have helped us successfully buy and sell several properties in Manhattan Beach. We continue to use them year after year due to their comprehensive marketing approach and concierge level of service.

      - Catherine B
    • As a home inspector, I'm in a unique position to actually see the real people that make up The Kaminsky Group. I'm not a buyer, and not a seller. I'm a guy involved in the buying and selling process that they have no reason to try to impress. What I do hear over and over again is them taking care of their clients. I come in contact with numerous real estate agents daily and The Kaminsky Group seem to go a step above for their clients. Buying or selling a home is a stressful process yet at the end of it, I feel like they really just want their clients to be happy and well taken care of. Whether it's Ed, Tina, Rachel, Miguel, or any of the others that keep their operation running smoothly, you will be well taken care of.

      - David H
    • We just made an incredible sale in Lo Angeles. I want to give credit to Carmen from the Kaminsky group. She brought the right buyer, and made the buyer and seller very happy. Any deal is only as good as both parties are happy, and we are. Carmen held it together until the moment it closed. Thank you Carmen and God Bless you.

      - Irene Danon
    • We have worked with Ed Kaminsky and team on several home purchases and sales. They are truly the best. Ed is extremely knowledgeable and accurate about the market. The entire team is professional and they are always reliable. They all offer great advise and provide guidance throughout the process. They never panic. We highly recommend them.

      - Ken G
    • Ed and his team have helped us both buy and sell our homes in Redondo Beach. One of our transactions also involved a relocation and during both transactions, we had a lot of questions that Ed and his team were able to help us out with by quickly providing us with detailed explanations and sound advice. They were there with us every step of the way during both transactions, and even after the transactions were completed, Ed and his team still assisted us by providing us with contractor referrals and other help getting us all settled into our new home. We highly recommend Ed Kaminsky and his team to anyone buying or selling a home in the South Bay!

      - Laura B
    • I usually never take the time to do reviews. I have been in the mortgage business for over 30 years, and I have personally bought and sold many properties. My words might be direct and not with a lot of fluff, but if you want an experience, even if you understand the process, that gives you every detail, complete professionalism, vast knowledge and experience, from the listing to the close, then Ed is your realtor. His negotiation skills easily made me an extra $250K on my last transaction, and everyone in his complete A-Z staff brings the table the best attitude in some of the toughest parts of the transaction. They completely give you the feeling that to them, this is not just a job, but their passion to make sure everything gets handled the way it should, without any surprises. Its not a wonder to me why Ed and his team are the best in the South Bay, and for anyone reading this review, I encourage you to just make the call before selecting a realtor, you will be glad you did! Thanks again Ed, your the best!!

      - Gary W
    • Ed and his team made our home buying experience seamless. Ed was professional, easy to work with, beyond knowledgable, and got us our dream home. He's an amazing negotiator and helped us beat out other offers while still getting a great deal on the house. Ed will be my go to for any future real estate needs. Thanks Ed!!

      - Emily B
    • We worked with Tina to sell our home in PV. I had interviewed a handful of agents prior to meeting with Tina. At my first sit down with Tina I knew she was the person to get our home sold fast and get us the number we want. She came with comps in our area and advertising strategy. Tina and her team are definitely the best in South bay. Not only are they great at what they do but they are genuinely good people who do ethical work. I wouldnt use anyone else to buy our next home.

      - Sunny K
    • "I've bought and sold over 20 properties in my lifetime. Wish I'd know about Kaminsky before the last 4 transactions I've done with him. I don't know of a company around that does what his company does. His staff is specialized in each step of the process from staging your home for sale to the final walk through. And he knows about properties that are not even on the market when you go to purchase.I'm very thorough in my business transactions and very detailed. His team is more prepared than I am! Simply the best.

      - Sally Y
    • One of the most amazing companies I have ever worked it. Ed's knowledge in invaluble and his teams attentiveness through the entire process was truly incredible.

      - Leslie G
    • Ed and his team know the Manhattan Beach market well and have the right marketing plan to generate activity and offers. Once under contract Eds team kept things moving with the buyer and we closed early in less than 30 days.

      - Jack M
    • Fantastic team work approach! Definitely cover all the bases in preparation, sale and close. Very well prepared and experienced in all aspects of the sale/purchase! Can't go wrong!

      - Maureen G
    • Best real estate service in the South Bay! Attention to detail and commitment to listening to client needs.

    • Tina is an absolute pleasure to work with! She was accommodating to our schedules and showed us what we were hoping to see! Tina has the inside scoop on the Realestate market and was able to find us the perfect home!

      - Thaddia
    • Working with Ed has been one of the most pleasant experiences I have had with regards to real estate. As soon as the listing contract was signed, Ed got to work right away and he managed to sell my property off market at a price for more than I was expecting. He was also able to negotiate the timing and terms of the contract to my advantage. Ed and his team were always available to answer any questions I had and they were very helpful throughout the escrow process. I am very happy with his and his team's services and will use him again.

      - John W
    • Love working with Ed and the team, such a wonderful experience and we look forward to working with them for a long time to come!!

      - Bobby C
    • Ed and his team are always professional, detail-oriented and organized. Love working with them!

      - Laura K
    • Our family and I were looking for our dream home in Hermosa Beach for the longest time. We searched on our own for a long time, toured a lot of places, and were growing increasingly frustrated that we could not find The one. Once we connected with Ed and told him what we were looking for, he threw the word out to his network and we just closed on our new home that he managed to find for us off market. The whole experience succeeded my expectations and I am so glad that Ed represented us. It was evident that he was looking out for our best interests from day 1, as opposed to just making a sale. The lending and escrow process was daunting, but Ed was in our corner every step of the way.

      - David M
    • Absolutely love working with Tina. My family has worked with here for years, and she is a powerhouse. She is always so attentive and thorough throughout the whole process. Her relationships with local brokers, professionalism, and experience is endless. Myself and my family will always only continue to work with Tina and the Kaminsky group.

      - Katherine N
    • What can I say? Tina is not only incredible to work with, she is a real superstar when it comes to real estate. She sold my condo recently and I was so impressed with her goal oriented action, her hard-work, dedication and time commitment. This wasnt my first time buying/selling a home but it was the first time I felt the agent really knew her business. From A to Z, the entire process with Tina showed her expertise in the industry. Tina thank you and I cant wait to work with you on the next purchase - my first house!

      - Olga R
    • Kaminsky Real Estate Group will definitely be our "GO-TO" realtor. We used Ed and his team a few years back and found his negotiation skills, and expertise about the market and real estate second to none. He's straight to the point and does not beat around the bush or add any "fluff" like I've seen realtors do in the past. He sold our home in record time, and had great marketing which I'm sure is even better now. Our home was on the market in Manhattan Beach for about 3 days when we received 2 offers. In the end we had 4 offers and sold about 120k over list! A great job indeed, and he really knew how to market our home and price it right! ADVICE - Listen to him, he knows what he's talking about, he's the expert. Just because YOU think your home is worth X doesn't mean it is (trust me, I learned the hard way)! If you want results, hire the best...Kaminsky Real Estate Group!

      - Vince B
    • We used Ed to sell multiple properties on the Westside and the South Bay. We also listed a home during a time that was very difficult to sell (around Christmas). A lot of agents were coming through and wasting our time. Ed worked diligently to find us a buyer. He was so great and communicative with us, he made us feel like we were his only clients. After some agents came in with looky loos, he ended up bringing a buyer over to our house, and got us an higher offer than what anyone else wanted to pay. His entire team made the process seamless. We are so grateful to have had them on our side

      - Adam P
    • Tina is the best. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. We moved to LA and knew we wanted to buy but had no idea where. We were first time home buyers and Tina helped us through the entire process. She helped us figure out where we wanted to be and what we wanted in a house, and was so incredibly patient with us every step of the way. I feel like she knew us/what we wanted better than we knew ourselves! After seeing quite a few homes, Tina found us the winner, which was a pocket listing that Tina knew would be perfect for us. Tina made it happen, and boy did it happen quickly! We decided we wanted it and Tina negotiated the deal that night. We had to get it done asap to seal the deal and Tina worked into the wee hours to make it happen. She was by our side every step of the way through the finishing steps, and one very helpful thing is that she knows EVERYONE so was able to provide great recommendations for help (i.e. electrician, handyman, roofer, etc.). Id mention Tinas name and things would get done! Side note, Tina was also 8.5 months pregnant when our home closed.. this would slow most people down, but not Tina! She is dedicated to her clients and an expert in her field.

      - Sarah Y
    • My husband and I met Ed nearly 20 years ago when we were listing our house in Hermosa. After receiving multiple offers, we knew we hired the right agent. He has since helped us with several real estate transactions....an amazing job done each and every time. We wouldn't hire anyone else.

      - Katie S
    • My husband and I have been searching for the right home for months and months on our own, we toured so many properties to no avail. Finally we connected with Ed and his team, feeling it was time to bring in some professional help in our search. He took the time to talk with us to understand our needs and what it would take to make a property our dream home. Through his extensive network he was able to track down a perfect home off market. We couldnt be happier with the teams attentiveness during the entire process, I loved working with a team that actually had our best interest at heart. The whole experience was a as low stress as it could be. Thanks Ed!

      - Kathy M
    • Ed and his team are always professional, very responsive all while keeping us fully updated and in the loop with the entire process It was always such a pleasure working with such an organized team.

      - Jennifer G
    • Ed Kaminsky realtors thank you all for being the best realtors! You were so attentive every step of the way. Your clear marketing plan, presented at our first meeting was executed with ease and no doubt lead to the quick sale of our home. We would recommend to everybody that wants to sell. Michele, Katie, Linda, Ed, thank you for helping us so much. We appreciate everything that was done and the total management of our transaction from setting up the listing to the final closing. On top of everything these people are the nicest people I ever met. Very kind, caring and helpful thank you very much.

      - Mary Dai
    • Awesome team, amazing job! I've worked with Miguel Gurza on countless deals and he's the best. He knows the market inside and out, is very punctual and always gets the job done. Highly recommended.

      - Jimmy D
    • He is always professional and honest. I trust him with the sale of my home. In fact I referred my cousin and he sold his home in just a week!

      - Eric G
    • My wife and I just sold our home and bought a new home a week later with Ed and Miguel. Their fantastic team work made the process so easy. They cover all the bases in preparation, sale and close. Can't go wrong with these guys

      - Robert G
    • Ed Kaminsky has been my real estate broker as both a buyer and seller two different times. Ed and his team are knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent sale, Ed was able to bring of multiple offers well in excess of our asking price. As a buyer, his team makes the process very easy. I am completely confident in Ed and his team and will only use them the next time I move. I highly recommend Kaminsky Real Estate Group!
