    • The decision to sell a home for some may be an easy one; for my wife and me that was definitely not the case. Emotional ties to the property and anxieties about real estate volatility had us more than concerned about whom we would trust to help us sell our home of the last 17 years. Enter Javier and Ana. Very shortly into our first meeting with them we knew we had found the right people. Javiers skillset is too vast for a concise review, but put simply what he offers is experience and a genial personality. Javier used his expertise to identify opportunities and his personal touch to make sure we never felt adrift or abandoned. Throughout the entire process of selling our home, Javier and Ana were always there for us: addressing our concerns, guiding us through real estates intricacies, or just offering reassurance when we needed it. Now that the house has been sold and escrow is behind us we are overjoyed. At the same time we will miss the very special bond we established with Javier and Ana in such a short time.

      - Loren, Covina CA
    • We had a great experience with Javier. We had been looking for about six months and had become discouraged after a bad experience with a previous real estate agent. After finding a home we were interested in, and attending the open house, we found Javier. He and Ana were kind enough to meet us the same day we made contact, which happened to be Mothers Day. Javier provided a clear timeline of how the home purchasing process works. When we told them the address of the home we were interested in, Ana was immediately on the phone checking to learn if there were offers on it. Javier and Ana then drove to the home to take an open house tour and see what they could learn about the situation, that same day. From what they learned we were able to make an informed and competitive bid on the house that night a bid that was accepted. Throughout the home buying process, from inspections to removal of contingencies to closing, Javier was always available to answer every question. And we had a lot of questions. He was especially helpful arranging the home inspection, a plumbing inspection, and a pest inspection. Then Javier helped us negotiate credits from the seller based on these inspections.Javier was super helpful at the end when our loan agent provided very little guidance. Thanks to some very confusing instructions from that loan agent, there was a real risk that we might not close on time. Javier coordinated with the escrow agent so that this was avoided. We would definitely work with Javier and Ana again.

    • Javier is one of the most driven people we know. Javier is up front and honest. He helped find us the perfect home. He is very patient and eager to get you exactly what you need. Javier respects your budget and went beyond to make sure we were happy. He even stopped by our house warming to congratulate us. He really is someone who cares and is not just trying to bring in the numbers.

      - Michelle, Ontario CA
    • We tried a couple of other realtors including 1 who asked if we wanted to make an offer after 10 minutes and looking at only one house before working with Javier. It ended up taking us over a year of looking in different neighborhoods before we finally found our home and Javier (and Anna) were patient and professional throughout the search. With so many houses on the market, Javier's insights about the condition and desirability of each house was very helpful to us as first time home buyers. Javier also really went above and beyond in explaining the mortgage and escrow process to us and agitated for us when our loan officer missed her deadlines.

      - Ricardo, Gardena CA
    • Javier was very helpful in finding us our first home. The first time we met he explained to us the whole process of buying a house and made sure we were informed of what we were going into. Javier is very patient and knew what we wanted and never pressured us into anything. Once we found a house and made an offer Javier was on top of everything calling us to inform of what's happening and what is going to happen next. He made this home buying process stress-free and made sure everything was taken care of and when it wasn't he handled it immediately and fixed it. I'm glad my husband and I found Javier. His assistant Ana is great too she was always there if we needed anything or had any questions. I would definitely recommend Javier to anyone.

      - Lisa, Pomona CA
    • Javier has been amazing in helping us to get our house sold in short time. He and his team spent time on decorating the home and did open house on weekends. All communication was done via text and email with less than 1 hour response to each request. The property was in good care when he managed to sell it fast. Look forward to working (buying / selling) with Javier again.

      - QQY, Covina CA
    • Very very highly recommend Javier to anyone who is selling or buying a home. After meeting with Javier a few times to look at houses we could tell that he truly had what was in our best interest as his drive to find us a home and sell our townhouse. He was always completely honest and upfront about everything. His years of experience has taught him about things to look for when purchasing a home i.e. the placement of water lines, kind of piping, condition of the roof, foundation, electrical. Every time we went to see a house he would inspect everything that he knew to look for and tell us what he seen that was good and bad about the house. He never tried to push a house upon us. He always wanted us to know what we were getting ourselves into. And most importantly he wanted us to be happy and safe with the house we chose. Javier also helped us sell our townhouse and get it ready to show. He gave tips on what we can do to make our home more appealing to a buyer. The little things that you don't think that matters truly does. We showed our townhouse only one weekend and we had many offers right away. Javier is an amazing person and genuine. He has high moral standards and I completely trust him with my family. He will always be the only Realator we will ever use and I completely recommend him. He is more than just our Realator he became our friend.

    • Real estate process is usually a nightmare with so many rules, papers to read, papers to sign, forms to fill up, due dates to meet, decisions to make, ... You desperately need somebody to help you on that so complex world.Real estate agents are supposed to be there to guide you but honestly most of them are simple salesmen trying to get the most from your need. That was my experience buying my house years ago. But there is a remarkable exception and that is the team of Mr. Javier Montiel and his sweet helper, Ana. You sense the difference from the first communication all the way to the last step of the transaction. Our first call to them was in a Sunday afternoon, expecting only to be able to leave a voice message . I was really impressed when they not just answered my call right away but also gave me an appointment for the next day, which happened to be a Holiday. I told my wife This is too good to be true. But Thanks God it was true. I could describe Javier and Ana like professionals, trustworthy, capable, reliable, very qualified, passionate, extremely friendly, detail oriented, and so many other good adjectives, but let me simply say that they are THE BEST. Working with them you do not feel alone anymore in that scary real estate world, but you feel you have a good friend guiding your every step.Salesmen always point to the good aspects on what they sale, while trying to hide to bad parts of the product. That is not the case with Javier. He will always give you an honest evaluation of the houses you visit, bringing to your attention not only their pros but also their cons; you will be amazed of both his knowledge and his honesty. Bottom line, I assure everybody that with Javier and Ana you will be on the best possible hands to either buy or sell that house. Thanks, Javier and Ana, for putting your clients needs in front of yours. I just wish there will be many more people like you to make this world a lot better place.

    • Javier came recommended from my wife's friend whom he helped close on their house. So when it was time for my wife and I to buy a house, we went with Javier and we are sooo glad we did. Upon our initial sit down together, he broke down the entire process and guided me through everything and answered all the questions I had along the way. He really fought for me and protected our contingency and really worked hard for us. Our situation was unique in that we were buying a condo and because I was utilizing my VA loan, the condo's HOA needed to be VA approved. It was nerve racking to say the least because it delayed our loan process and such, but Javier really kept the seller cool and it was just smooth the who way. We are so blessed to have met Javier and his wife and we're so glad that we were still able to close in 30 days even with the VA requiring the HOA approval and all. Javier is such a pro and we took his guidance and recommendation every step of the way and he did not let us down. We are happily moved in and we cannot thank Javier enough for all his hard work in securing our home for us.

    • Javier Montel did a great job for us! I highly recommend his services. He greatly exceeded our expectations not only selling our house above the asking price but also in record time. He was there from start to finish and provided all the services required throughout the entire process. He removed the stress of selling a home making it very easy for us. He was in constant communication providing frequent updates. He cares about his clients and worked so hard for us. Thank you Javier.

      - Edward, South Pasadena CA
    • Javier is what a true Realtor should be. We have dealt with more Real Estate Agents, residential and commercial, then we would have liked too, and generally found them to be lacking. Not this time. My wife talked to half a dozen agents before finding Javier and once she did, the decision was easy. From the first call through closing they were fantastic! I say they, because Javiers wife Ana is a critical part of the team, and the Yang to his Yin. Their deep knowledge of the market proved invaluable as they worked with us on defining what we wanted from the sale as far as timing and price and helped balance those against market conditions. Throughout the process their communication was clear, concise and designed not just to inform, but educate and provide context. The attention to detail and effort put in to prep our home for showing was beyond compare. When we first met them, we had already started packing and sorting and our home was just short of a disaster zone. With infinite patience they waited while we reached the point of being ready to list and helped us select the furniture arrangements and details to best showcase our homes features. The presentation and photography were beyond our expectations. We signed the contract on Wednesday, they held Open Houses on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and by Monday we had multiple offers over asking price.The service didnt stop there. Through every step of the Escrow process they were there to help. Since we were no longer living in the property full time, Javier would check on it regularly, meet inspectors and repair people and even move the trash cans in and out. We never had to wonder what the status of the transaction was, or what was next. When a decision was necessary, such as responding to a request from the buyer, they would always provide us with all options available and provide an opinion on what they recommended. That recommendation was never pushed on us and always supported with facts from their previous experiences. It doesnt hurt that they are genuinely nice people. They love what they do, and it shows. If you want a first class experience you wont go wrong working with Javier and Ana.

      - Pearlin, Covina CA
    • I absolutely recommend Javier. We met him over 2 years ago. While we were not ready to sell at that time, he kept us informed of market conditions with never any pressure to move forward before we were ready. Javier's knowledge of the market served us well. He advised exactly what needed to be done to our house (and what didn't), hired a fabulous photographer, and held a successful open house on a Saturday and Sunday--we accepted an offer the next day. Javier went above and beyond what we expected to get the best result for us. He is a pleasure to work with and is always responsive. He totally earned our trust, and he will do a fabulous job for you.

      - Roberta, Covina CA
    • Javier Montiel is the epitome of a professional real estate agent. He raises the bar high for anyone who is in real estate. He not only delivered, but he exceeded our expectations. However, you not only get him but you get Ana, an amazing partner who in my opinion compliment each other. They met every request my wife and I had in Regards to selling and buying a new home. We found our dream home, however we needed to sell our house before we could make a bid. He understood our situation and came up with a strategy to get us the house we wanted. He sold our house on the first day we held open house and got us above asking. He also spoke directly to the agent who was representing the house we wanted and some how was able to get our offer accepted. Hes very meticulous and detailed oriented which made the process easy on our end. Just listen to his advice and he will make sure you get the best offer available. Definitely the best of the best In his field. Thanks again Javier and Ana, we appreciate everything you did for us, and most definitely looking forward to working with you in the future

      - Justin, Covina CA
    • No one recommended Javier to us, just looked on line for local agent. First thing, very easy to reach and contact and his quick responses.Second, his expertise. explanation from the beginning of the timeline he setup, to the final funding of the sale. I can add more but this is getting too long. I can vouch for this honest guy if anyone is selling and I would think when buying as well! Thank you Javier and Anna for all your help and tons of good luck for you and Anna for the coming 2019.

      - Ramon, Covina CA
    • Javier was referred to me through a friend who assured me my first time home buying experience would meet my expectations. Little did I know the roller coaster and challenges I would be facing, Javier exceeded my expectation at every level. Not once did he not answer his phone, or return my call within minutes. He was punctual to every appointment, extremely friendly, fully attentive to my ridiculous schedule of early mornings, later evenings, short notices and even weekends. My home was offered and accepted during New Years/holiday week. No way did I expect him to work as eagerly as he did for me during holiday week and because of that, we had an advantage of closing the home quickly and effectively while everyone was on "vacation". I knew I found the right agent when I realized he was not trying to sell me every property we stepped into. He pointed out precautions, concerns, liabilities and outright talked me out of several properties of my interest that I would've easily overlooked myself. I honestly felt that he put my interests at his utmost priority the entire time. Javier continually followed through with me even after I received my keys to assure that I had the support and information I needed with all my home improvements. To this day, I still have Javier's contact in my cell phone for any advice, questions and references I need. Honest, passionate, motivated and devoted, Javier is not the only agent I have worked with in my life, but he will be the only one I will refer and work with in the future.

      - Ang, Covina CA
    • Javier Montiel and Ana were very helpful with my wife and I during our two year search for our home. They were so patient with us and never tried to rush us in any way. Javier walked us through every step of the home purchasing process from beginning to end on our first meeting and was always available to answer any questions we may have had. They made the process very comfortable for especially my wife. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor team than Javier and Ana, I would highly recommend them to anyone. If your looking for a kind, honest, and not a pushy realtor team, Javier Montiel and Ana are the realtors for you.

      - Ajcj, Covina CA
    • Javier Montiel is the BEST agent I have ever met. He has been our agent since we bought our first home, finding us a very good deal; few years later he helped us selling it and finding the house of MY DREAMS for a very good price. He is very honest , professional and has great negotiation skills. I would definitely recommend Javier and his assistant Anna.

      - Sandra, Covina CA
    • Javier did a great job at helping me find my new home. He was very good at explaining all the paper work and walking me through the whole process. Javier showed me multiple homes and never gave up on me. He was always available to answer my questions at anytime. I would highly recommend him as your Agent.

      - Fion, Baldwin Park
    • Javier was our realtor when we sold our home in Covina, CA, in 2014. Within a week, he was able to lock in a buyer, for $10K above asking price, which was already higher than comparables to begin with. At the same time, he helped us find a condo in a very competitive school district area of South Pasadena, CA. The condo was priced to sell (lower than comparables to encourage a bidding scenario,) yet he managed to lock it at that price, with a $3K seller's credit to boot! What's more, he was able to time the sale and the purchase so perfectly, making the whole ordeal less stressful.This year, he did it again with the sale of our condo. We priced it well above comparables, just for the heck of it, and he managed to lock in a CASH buyer at full asking within a week!!! We sold the condo in order to find a multi-unit property in the area. When we found the right property, he was able to lock in the deal at a very substantial price reduction. If you ask me, that is one heck of a maneuver in this seller's market in any neighborhood - let alone our highly competitive neighborhood.But those are not even the best parts of it all. Javier, along with his assistant, Ana, are a delight to deal with. They are professional, yet personal. They go above and beyond the call of duty for anything that comes up during the entire process. They are thorough; they know what's coming up around the corner and are always one step ahead. They keep us posted and are always available. In short, they are simply the best in their field.All these selling and buying, in all these years... As you know, these are some of, if not the, most stressful decisions in our lives. Yet they manage to make them feel like exciting adventures, instead of nerve-wracking events. We just closed escrow, but are actually looking forward to our next adventure with them. You see, early on, their sincerity and honesty have seamlessly earned our complete trust. Javier and Ana are more than our realtors. They have become our family friends.So, would we recommend them to anyone? HECK YEAH!!!

      - Alonso, South Pasadena
    • I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful my home selling and buying experience was thanks to Javier Montiel. The process of selling our home was so quick and smooth. He assisted us patiently for almost a year while we waited for the right home to come on the market. I have never worked with such a knowledgeable, hard working, kind and thorough realtor; he made my husband and I feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He was very responsive to our concerns and questions and was always available to see homes on very short notice. Javier went above and beyond in helping us buy the right home for us. I highly recommend Javier to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

      - Jacky, Lawndale CA
    • Great service all around, very professional. Will fight for you until the very end. For anyone on the wall on who to go with as your realtor, don't hesitate any further!
