Gustavo Cardenas

  • Gustavo helped me buy a home

      Gustavo is fantastic! Working with him as realtor to find our house was easy and enjoyable (granted, house-buying experiences are typically stressful). He is very knowledgeable about the market, provides great insights on the different pros and cons of the areas you are looking into, and does a terrific job understanding what you want/like/need in order to help you find and negotiate that particular place you want to call home. No question in my mind that he was influential in the process for us to be able to get our property, as there were many other buyers with offers for the same place... his experience and ability to move fast helped us close the deal!

    • I was in need of a realtor in the South Bay area to list a family house. I researched realtors on the Internet and I made the decision to select Gustavo Cardenas based on the reviews I read. Working with him was the best experience I have ever had working with a realtor. Ever in my life. Because I live 50 miles from the house I was selling, it was important to me to find a realtor who would also be willing to assist in coordinating work to be done to the home. Not only did he get top dollar for the home, and assist with everything that was needed locally, he kept in constant communication with me every step of the way. He also had great perspectives on questions that I had and he clearly has a lot of in depth knowledge about real estate. He is an honest person and he made the entire experience of selling a home much easier than I was expecting. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home in the future. And I will use him again for selling or buying a home even if the home is not in the South Bay area. He is that good.

    • I can't possibly imagine a better realtor than Gustavo Cardenas. His experience and knowledge of real estate, the market, and the neighborhood was very impressive. He shared the specifics of his plan to market and show the home, and coordinated every single activity from the moment we met him until well after closing. Of great importance to us was having a realtor that understood the in's-n-out's of corporate relocation, and it turns out that Gustavo is a leading specialist in that area of practice, with a significant amount of specialized training and experience. Most importantly, Gustavo is very pleasant and easy to work with, has an awesome personality, and is a pleasure to talk to. By following Gustavo's plan and recommendations, we had 4 competitive offers one day after the open house, all above listing price. We were in a sale contract within 1 week of listing, which closed in 30 days. There is not a better Realtor in the South Bay, guaranteed. He really understands current market conditions and knows how to work within them.

    • Gustavo was referred to us by a close family friend, for his real-estate expertise in the South Bay area. We could not be happier! We sold our Home in 5 days for very close to our asking price. Gustavo was patient with our schedules as a school nurse, and my husbands passion as a High School football. Gustavo honored the fact that my husband and his family had owned the house for over 50 years, and he took into account every bit of emotional attachment we had to the property. His patience, integrity and ethical character were a welcome norm after dealing with a few real-estate people that claimed to be experts in the specific area that we lived. We were blessed to have met and worked with Gustavo and his staff. We look forward to working with him again on our future real-estate needs.

    • Gustavo was voted South Bays BEST realtor in 2018. This is quite an honor that is richly deserved. Gustavo is warm and a personable realtor who skillfully transforms his business relationships into friendships. He is gifted in this way and will go the extra mile to help you meet your goal. I am satisfied I chose Gustavo as my realtor and felt he worked hard for me, and at the end result proved it. Gustavo is indeed the BEST realtor who anyone would feel lucky to have as their agent (and friend). I have no regrets selecting Gus as my realtor and would gladly do so again in the future.

    • You will never meet another realtor like Gustavo. His knowledge, drive and integrity are unmatched. I could never use anyone else.

    • Gustavo is fantastic! He is a joy to work with on top of being incredibly knowledgeable, always following through, quick to reply and is very transparent and honest. I wouldnt put my trust in anyone else.

    • Best agent ever! Sold our house for full ask in less than a week! Full service agent too. Professional and really knows his industry.

      - Carole Dearborn
    • Gustavo was recommended to us by a close friend. All I can say is, Gustavo is a very great realtor. He knows his business, he didn't make us feel like our questions were stupid, but, rather, questions what anyone would want answeredWe felt like every step or decision we had to make, we were able to do smartly. And that was because Gustavo guided us through the process knowledgeably. We knew he was on our side, but, didn't let it stop him from telling us we were making a mistake. So, in the end we felt we had a great realtor, who made us comfortable in our decision making. And, hopefully, we have a new friend. Thank you, Gustavo

    • Still a 5-star review but updated because we bought and sold with Gustavo. Again, we appreciated Gustavo being in constant communication (and putting things in DocuSign for us) every step of the way. We were able to leave town and delegate the house selling to him. You can trust his strategy, pricing, open house timing, and just getting things done. If we move back to the area, he'll be one of our first calls! Deborah C.

    • This note is LONG overdue and we apologize for not contacting you sooner. We want to give a huge thank you to you for the excellent job you did with marketing and selling our home in Rancho Palos Verdes. Your commitment to getting the house in the public view thru all the advertising, marketing, flyers and open house events was definitely FIRST CLASS! I still cant believe that you dedicated 5 weekends in a row to personally being at the house for OPEN HOUSE! Your professionalism and expertise in negotiating with the buyers was truly appreciated. You went above and beyond the call of duty by arranging for the sale and move of the billiard table too. Thank you again for all you did to get us the price we wanted for our home, and the seamlessness to getting all the sales documentation done was wonderful. Continued good luck in your future sales endeavors. Dave & Julie Olson, 5733 Wildbriar Drive
