  • Meital listed and sold my home

      Meital was perfect from the day she listed my house until the day we closed. My house had been on the market for over 365 days without 1 offer. Meital looked at the house and I felt she immediately understood the house and what we needed to do to make the house look it’s best. She has great taste and her suggestions were perfect. She made me feel like I was her only client - she was always available. Her marketing plan was well thought out and she created a huge amount of interest in the house. She staged each showing and within 2 months we had an offer, which was not immediately acceptable. But Meital has amazing negotiating skills and we were able to agree on acceptable terms. That isn’t the end of the story. It turns out we hadn’t closed all of our building permits and now Meital really had to keep this deal together while we took care of our permit issues . She did it all! I can’t say enough about her professionalism and ability to get it done and done right! Meital added so much to a difficult sale. I recommend her without any hesitation- she is head and shoulders above any other realtor I’ve ever worked with. Fantastic in so many ways.

    • Meital helped me buy a home

        We were planning on buying a house in Laguna Beach, a significant purchase for us. We narrowed down the list of realtors to a few, there were several with glowing reviews. I found her website and sent her a message early on a Sunday morning. When she called me within five minutes, a knew she was the one for us. Meital is very organized and responsive. She guided us through the process and we always felt she was our advocate. Since she acted as a buyer’s agent for us, her meticulous attention to details and excellent knowledge of the area ensured that we were always on top of things that need to be addressed before closing. Our new home is absolutely lovely but it is also a 40+ year-old property on typically challenging Laguna Beach terrain, so it was extra important that there were no unpleasant surprises. The result was…. We hope this is our last house, but if it’s not, there’s no one else we would consider. Tom & Grace Morrissey

              Extremely knowledgeable of Laguna Beach area, and an outstanding negotiator. Meital listened to what we were looking for and fought hard to get us the home that checked every box at the most realistic price. Highly recommend her to anyone looking in LB area. We were very lucky to have met her and to have her on our side.

            • Meital listed and sold my home

                Meital and her team were fantastic! During our first meeting with Meital, we knew she was the right agent for us. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and up-front / honest with us. She did a great job marketing our property and we sold it after 4 weeks. All along the way, she was available and helped us through the negotiating, inspection and closing process. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home. A true professional.

                  • Meital helped me buy a home

                      This was our first home purchase in California. Initially we weren’t in a hurry but Ashleigh (Meitals assistant) worked patiently behind the scenes gathering info and inventory to present to us. She really listened to our wants and needs. She was available 7 days a week for a consult, a viewing, or just a quick chat to work through some ideas. Once we did find our “home” the fun began! The closing process was VERY complicated but Ashleigh and her team worked miracles with the outside listing agent, contractors and even our bank to make it happen! If we ever decide to move again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Ashleigh Mann - we highly recommend her!

                    • Meital listed and sold my home

                        Best realtor ever! Hard worker intelligent and great negotiator. We were lucky to have Meital on our team. Very professional follows up on everything.

                      • Brandon is a high energy and tenacious professional. He quickly learned our preferences and optimized the efficiency of our house search. He is super efficient and responsive. Always pleasant and fun to work with. We highly recommend Brandon as he found a house that we loved and purchased.

                        - John B 11/27/20
                      • I worked with Meital in the selling of my two homes. My main home in Laguna Beach, and a vacation home in Palm Springs. They both sold in record time and I could not be happier. Meital is a class act and her strong work ethic, along with excellent communication skills helped me feel well taken care of and supported of both sales. Thank you Meital and your great team as well!

                        - Heather K 11/28/20
                      • Meital was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. We have worked with agents around the world and by far Meital and her team were the most professional, dedicated and consistent of anyone we have ever worked with. Her communication was outstanding and she is a fantastic negotiator. We would recommend Meital Taub Luxury Group to anyone buying or selling property.

                        - Roy H 10/26/20
                      • Meital Taub needs the title of wonder woman! After interviewing other people to sell my house I met with Meital. She was impressive! She knows her market and knows her buyers. She said, "I know some people who might be interested in your home, can I bring them by?" I said, "sure". Those are the people who bought it ! I had a contract in just 5 days. I never thought selling could be so easy. And her staff is great to work with too!

                        - Vonda S (former Miss America) 10/20/20
                      • We just purchased a new home with Meital. We bought our first house in California years ago with her, and knew that she is the only one we would go with to buy a new house. Meital is so knowledgeable about the market, that we bought a house that wasnt even listed yet. You can always count on Meital to work her hardest for you all hours of the day or night. Meital is an incredible agentone based on honesty, experience, work ethic, and professionalism. Without a doubt, Meital is definitely the one to call when buying or selling a home.

                        - Lorri R 10/6/2020
                      • I cant recommend Meital Taub and her staff enough! She is not just a beautiful face, but a fierce worker with incredible class and knowledge. She listened to us , supported all our decisions and took care of every little detail. She communicated with us on a regular basis and advised us on anything and everything we had questions on. She is detailed, has amazing working relationships with countless resources from contractors to cleaning crews and everyone who knows her and works with her, trusts her and admires her. She is the best and we would consider ourselves lucky to ever get to work with her again.

                        - Kim C 9/22/20
                      • I worked with Meital recently on a sale in LB and really appreciate her expertise in navigating the entire sale and professionalism. I would highly recommend working with her on any business in the local area. She is very knowledgeable and easily understands how to guide you through the entire process. Her team was first class from the start to the finish. Selling a house during the pandemic made life challenging, but working with Meital and her group helped get us to the end without any issues.

                        - Seth B 8/25/20
                      • Meital was an amazing partner in our recent purchase in Laguna Beach. She was there every step of the way and provided local knowledge, impeccable timelines, and attention to detail that I've not experienced in any of our previous buying experiences.

                        - Daniel M 8/15/20
                      • Meital is knowledgeable, experienced and a pleasure to work with. When we were interviewing realtors she stood out to us because she saw not only a beautiful home and view, but she had a vision of alternative uses of the house. We felt she would be proactive when marketing the property which she was, including using drones to have the best possible views for the outdoors. She was responsive when there was a question or keeping us up to date. She is a 5 star!

                        - Barbara B 7/20/20
                      • Meital was excellent in helping us navigate not one but two transactions within 80 days. Our first transaction was the sale of our property. Meital and her team were very thorough and efficient in the preparation of marketing our property and showcased all the highlights and benefits of the home. The photos were professional and maximized the views, quality, and details of our home to ensure the best price. Meital handled our needs with professionalism and warmth one could ask of a friend. Our families' needs were respected and we were never "ambushed" and expected to show the property to a random passerby or at the last minute. The only "last minute" showing was to the ultimate buyers. I share that because it is important to know that Meital knew when there was a buyer on the line and when to ask us to make the ultimate accommodation. She protected our best interests as she navigated both ends of the deal and we felt she worked with both parties to achieve everyone's ultimate goal. On our second transaction, Meital represented us as the buyer. She was excellent in jumping on an opportunity we found and persisted on our behalf to ensure we were the best offer presented. Meital was thorough in guiding us to be sure that we had complete knowledge of the property we were purchasing and that there were no hidden 'surprises' once we closed. I can't say that to be true of all realtors in town based on our interactions of these last two purchases. We would highly recommend Meital for all real estate needs. She is prepared to handle even the most complex transactions. Working with Meital is the best decision we have made in this process. We adore her!

                        - Sheri M 7/17/20
                      • Meital is the ultimate real estate professional! Buying in Laguna Beach from out of town, she planned out home viewing to meet my schedule and respect my time. She was knowledgeable, patient, and went above and beyond helping me close on the house of my dreams in record time! Meital has been a great resource to me with referrals for various home services as I am new to the area. I highly recommend her without reservation!!

                        - Claudia W 7/7/20
                      • My wife and I bought and sold two houses with Meital representing us. We have also bought and sold two additional houses with two other agents (prior to finding Meital) and weve interacted with many agents representing our buyers and sellers. In other words, we have a fair amount of experience with a number of agents. I can say hands down that Meital is the very best agent weve ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable with uncanny instincts. After the first transaction with Meital (a purchase), she earned our complete trust. She always has our best interest in mind and is not afraid to tell you if she thinks youre making a mistake at any stage of the process. All of her suggestions for inspectors, service people, etc., have been fantastic and weve recommended them to our friends. She works exceptionally hard in all aspects of the sale and is very responsive to texts and phone calls. I know she is extremely busy, but she always made us feel like we were her only client. She sold both of our houses very quickly (one during the COVID lockdown!) to buyers that she identified through her own marketing and networkingthey did not come to us through the usual Zillow or open house channelsand we got top dollar, way more than we expected was possible. One more thing that many buyers/sellers dont think about: it can be a very emotional process and Meital is an expert at evaluating the situation, calming nerves, and guiding you toward the right, level-headed decisions. We would never consider anyone other than Meital to represent us in a home sale or purchase.

                        - Greg H 6/17/20
                      • Searching for real estate in Orange County can be a daunting task especially when doing so during a pandemic that adds further challenges to the process. As one of the most desirable places in the world to live, properties here can vary greatly from one to the other and add a lot of complexity in evaluating and.choosing the right home at the right value while also satisfying wants and needs. Since we live out of state, the choice of findings the right real estate agent was the most important and paramount decision to being successful spending countless hours searching and reviewing listings, reviews, and testimonials from realtors throughout the OC and LA areas. After narrowing down our search, we contacted Meital Taub, and following our first conversation, we were very confident and never looked back knowing that she was the right person to help us find everything we were looking for in our new home. As someone who doesnt often write testimonials, there is none more deserving of this recognition and appreciation than Meital. To say that she is INCREDIBLE is an understatement. Without question, Meital is the most professional, most honest, and hardest working realtor that I have ever encountered. She never oversold, never up sold, and never pushed us in any way. She was direct, informative, and is the most organized, punctual, and thorough professional that I have ever had the opportunity to work with during any purchase or transaction in my career. She truly did it all and more! As a business professional myself, I have to admit that Meital is inspiring and performs at a rare level of excellence that we consistently experienced before, during, and after we bought our new home. From our family to you, thank you Meital for all that you did to make this purchase so easy and so enjoyable!

                        - Mike A 6/13/20
                      • Meital is the best realtor Ive ever met! She is so on her game: thorough, responsive, extremely hardworking. I found her to be so knowledgeable about the area and real estate in general. She was a pleasure to do business with, and Id highly recommend her.

                        - Finnian C 6/11/20
                      • I cant say enough good things about this agent, intelligent, honest, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. On various accounts, she actually talked me out of a property because she didn't think it was the right fit. So thankful because we ended up with the perfect property for our family. I will never use another agent.

                        - Sissi C 6/3/20
                      • I had the pleasure of working with Meital Taub for my Laguna Beach home. We found her to be extremely savy and professional. She always responded to all texts and phone calls extremely promptly and has a flair for building rapport with her clients. We will use her again in the future.

                        - Janice B 4/20/20
                      • Meital was great to work with and made the process easy and stress free. She was able to help us navigate a multiple-offer situation and we won. Would highly recommend!

                        - Toby Z 4/10/20
                      • Meital Taub and her team recently helped market and sell our late sister's house in Newport Coast. Neither my brother and I live in Orange County so we were concerned about the logistics of the process. Meital and her group arranged for help from stagers, painters and other talented and reliable craftspeople who helped us get the property ready for sale. She helped us arrive at a fair price for the property. The first weekend's open houses resulted in multiple offers. Meital helped us choose and negotiate the best offer. Her group shepherded us through the process of inspections and repairs. Everyone she recommended was efficient and reasonably priced. Because we were not there to supervise the work, we relied on Meital to make sure everything was done correctly and in a timely manner. All of this took place in what has become extremely trying times because of the COVID-19 virus which affected all our lives in the middle of escrow. Meital and crew made sure we went through escrow as rapidly as possible. We heartily recommend Meital and her team!

                        - Harvey L 4/10/20
                      • Ms. Taub had been referred to us by a close friend of my sister who had recently passed away and whose home we needed to sell. From the get go, Ms. Taub demonstrated her professionalism and determination to make the sale quickly by coordinating her efforts with her staff and with us. She actually ended up representing the couple who bought the home in addition to representing my brother and I as the sellers. The buyers went to the first open house and made an offer. Two other offers came in quickly too. The buyers increased their offer to the listing price and were able to close within 30 days.

                        - Myron L 4/10/20
                      • We feel so incredibly lucky to have Meital as our agent. She is responsive, helpful, and really knows what we as the buyers need and want in a house. She is also a great negotiator! From beginning to end, working with her has been absolutely seamless. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

                        - MC 1/31/20
                      • Meital Taub was the best real estate agent we have worked within our 50+ years of selling and buying properties in CA. She was hard-working, organized, reliable, diligent, intelligent and experienced, explaining and smoothly resolving any and all issues that arose. She was always readily available and worked steadily to complete a successful real estate sales transaction for us. Personally, Meital is a warm and caring individual with a generous spirit--a joy to work with; we will always think of her as a true professional and friend. Her assistant, Brandon Buckner was also personable and professional, demonstrating a bright future in the real estate business.

                        - Gene B 1/14/20
                      • Working with Meital Taub and her team to sell our home exceeded any of our expectations. Meital is simply the best! Meital is enthusiastic and well prepared and knows the real estate market very well. We highly recommend Meital.

                        - Marilyn D
                      • I could not have sold the house without Meital Taub's expertise and experience. Highly recommend her.

                        - Jim M 1/8/20
                      • Meital Taub and her team exceeded our expectations in seamlessly achieving our dream home in Laguna Beach. We needed to sell our current home at a competitive price in a specific timeline during the pre Christmas period. Meital has such depth of experience, is highly respected by her colleagues and knows the Laguna market so well that we had great confidence. Meital and her teams communication is first class. They were always helpful, responsive and drove the entire process. We were stunned by the extensive multilevel exposure our property was given which led to our first offer within 3 weeks. The simultaneous sale and purchase were smooth and stress free. A pleasure to recommend Meital, she is First class.

                        - Kirsten R 12/6/19
                      • My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Meital Taub and her team recently on the sale of our home. We had interviewed two agents and decided to go with Meital because quite honestly her suggested list price was $375000 higher than the other agent and more in line with what we thought the value of our home was. When it was all said and done choosing Meital allowed us to walk away with an extra $270000. A lot of people hire friends and acquaintances to sell their home .... we decided to hire the best agent in Laguna Beach to get the job done and it proved to be a wise decision. Aside from her knowledge of the Laguna Beach market they were understanding and beyond accommodating to the requirements of trying to sell a home with 4 year old and 12 month old children. Everyone associated with her team was a pleasure to speak with and always responsive to any questions or concerns. Never pushy just offering insightful suggestions to get the job done. I would use Meital and her team again in a heartbeat. Truly a great experience.

                        - Kosta A 10/30/19
                      • Meital Taub handled the sale of our $10.3 million dollar home in Laguna Beach as seller's exclusive representative. Her level of diligence and professionalism was truly exceptional. Having both a law and business degree, she has all the tools necessary to address the complicated issues that inevitably surface in real estate transactions. I would highly recommend her to any seller or buyer looking for representation on coastal property in Orange County.

                        - Peter D 6/13/19
                      • If I could give 10 stars to Meital and the Team I would. As a seller of a luxury condo in Laguna Beach, I was fortunate to find a true real estate partner throughout the transaction. Meital and team excelled in every step along the way; marketing the property, attentive to questions, dealing with contracts and so much more. Simply nice people to work with from start to finish. If youre looking to buy or sell your property, then without hesitation look no further than the Meital Taub Luxury Group! True professionals!

                        - Ethan T 6/17/19
                      • Meital and her Team were extremely professional and easy to work with. She works smart and hard and communicates efficiently, while completely taking care of all details. Her advice is based on a deep understanding and knowledge of the market. We appreciate her efforts and speed in getting us to the close!

                        - Marty B 6/28/19
                      • Meital is the best. You cannot go wrong with her. While searching for a home, she was attentive and concerned about our needs and wants in a property for our family and lifestyle. She was always present and in the moment as we looked through homes. She has knowledge of the market as well as the deep local knowledge, even street-to-street, of all of Laguna Beach. I totally trust that Meital always had our best interests at hand. Once we found a house we felt we could call home, she was able to negotiate and work with the seller until we were comfortable and happy with the price and terms. She has incredible attention to detail during all the steps of a sale. Real estate transactions can be emotional and tense, but Meital remains steadfast, analytical and calm throughout the entire process. Both my husband and I highly recommend Meital. No question.

                        - Susie M 10/3/19
                      • I work with a lot of real estate professionals, Meital is right at the top of that list! She proved her reputation is well deserved as the leading luxury residential professional in the Newport/Laguna Beach area. Her focus and attention to detail helped position the property for optimal pricing and resulted in a very successful closed transaction. Meital is highly responsive and has very strong sales and negotiating skills, she is always looking for the best interests of her clients! I would strongly recommend Meital and her team!

                        - Tim B 10/2/19
                      • We've purchased 9 homes and this was the smoothest thanks to Meital's professionalism and guidance. Our purchase was complicated by the fact that we don't live in the area so we relied heavily on her market expertise and the services offered by her team to help us from a distance. She helped us evaluate all aspects of the transaction and listened carefully for our needs and met them. Our time with her was focused and effective, saving us multiple trips to the area. She also connected us to a network of other professionals to help us complete the transaction and take the next steps in customizing the property to our linking. Thank you Meital for making what can be a stressful time so seamless.

                        - Chris H 9/25/19
                      • Meital is the most thorough knowledgeable agent Ive ever worked with. Shes calm & thoughtful in the face of controversy & we intend to use her to find our next home.

                        - Wayne L 9/5/19
                      • Very professional and knowledgeable of the local Laguna market. Excellent negotiator and communication skills. Was able to effectively negotiate with seller on hard offer. Would highly recommend.

                      • As the CEO of one of the largest mentoring agencies in the nation, Big Brothers Big Sisters OC & IE, I had the incredibly important job of finding a broker to represent a recent very generous estate gift. With a $10+M on a unique piece property in Laguna Beach, I needed a true professional who not only understood how to operate at that price point, but who was a true professional. Meital exceeded expectations in every category. Listing and selling the estate at the highest possible value in the shortest possible time. She is a professional, a philanthropist and a class act. I give her the highest possible recommendation.

Meital was so pleasant to work with, she is truly beautiful inside and out."

                      • "We were planning on buying a house in Laguna Beach, a significant purchase for us. We narrowed down the list of realtors to a few, there were several with glowing reviews. I found her website and sent her a message early on a Sunday morning. When she called me within five minutes, I knew she was the one for us.Meital is very organized and responsive. She guided us through the process and we always felt she was our advocate. Since she acted as a buyers agent for us, her meticulous attention to details and excellent knowledge of the area ensured that we were always on top of things that need to be addressed before closing. Our new home is absolutely lovely but it is also a 40+ year-old property on typically challenging Laguna Beach terrain, so it was extra important that there were no unpleasant surprises. The result was. We hope this is our last house, but if its not, theres no one else we would consider."

From making the decision to list, to setting the price, writing copy for and photography of our home, to showing the home, negotiating the sale, and walking us through all the steps of closing. We couldn't have asked to have a better advocate and professional working for us.We strongly and without reservation recommend her for your home sale or purchase!"

Her intellect, confidence, trustworthiness and professionalism during the purchase of our Laguna Beach dream home provided us with a profound sense of security during what otherwise would have been a very stressful transaction.

                      • "I am very fortunate to have met Meital. She is very professional, easy to deal with, very honest and truly looks out for the best interest of her clients. I was out of the country on vacation when she called and told me she found the perfect home for me. I have been looking for several months and had no luck especially in this competitive market. Then I met Meital and she found an off market home for me. She emailed the photos, negotiated with the seller and when I got back from vacation, all I had to do was look at the home. It was the perfect home!!! She is definitely a great listener since the home had everything I was looking for and more. I will definitely recommend Meital to my family and friends. I could not have asked for a better realtor. Thank you Meital!!

                      • "My wife, Lorri, and I worked with Meital Taub during our recent relocation from Virginia to southern California. The relocation benefits offered through my company provided orientation services and realtors through Quest. While Meital was not originally on the list of realtors working with the relocation company, it became apparent to us through referrals that her market knowledge was superior in the areas that we were most interested in. We asked for and received approval to work with Meital which turned out to be a great decision. Meital worked with the relocation company to quickly meet their requirements and the relocation company commented positively on her follow through and service orientation.While representing us, Meital quickly earned our confidence by consistently demonstrating the following required skills: Good rapport with other agents Because Meital is active in the market and has earned a reputation of high integrity, other agents were happy to work with her. This carried over to benefit her clients. For example, other agents were often willing to meet Meitals requests and provide us with important information. In-depth market knowledge Meital provided us with both the qualitative and quantitative market research that informed our decision. It was always evident that Meital was well prepared for our meetings. She conducted extensive research which spanned many areas such as neighborhood positives and concerns, price history and trends, and other pertinent info. The house that we ended up buying was not listed and we only found it through Meitals current knowledge and connections. She also has a network of quality specialists that we were able to draw upon for added consultation like geologists and other professionals. Negotiation skills Meital provided good counsel throughout the negotiation process. She dealt with matters with the appropriate amount of urgency and kept us focused on the most important issues. Outstanding Service levels Meital demonstrated excellent availability and she worked with our schedule as our trips from the east coast were limited and needed to be most productive. Consistent Follow through Meital continued to help us with issues after the sale was complete. She helped us acclimate to the area and continued to provide excellent counsel as we worked through the move in process. Integrity We had the utmost confidence in Meital because she consistently demonstrated her approach to do the right thing for others. Im happy to recommend Meital Taub because Im confident in her character and abilities. She made our relocation experience a positive one

                      • "Meital is outstanding in her field. She is knowledgeable, thorough, communicative, organized and warm. She aces all of the primary criteria that a real estate agent needs to be successful. She treats the owners like family, and her ability to balance your needs as a homeowner/seller with market fluctuations, all along detailing, via email and phone, changes and opportunities, makes her unparalleled in service and quality. "We were 8 months pregnant with our second child when our landlord said we needed to move in three months because he was selling the home we were renting. Besides being totally overwhelmed, we had no direction in our housing search; should we rent or buy, go for our dream home or be a fiscally conservative, downsize or expand. This was the state in which we met Meital. She completely dedicated herself to finding our family a home not just a house.She began by showing us the full range and then was able to hone in on our feedback to narrow the field to our style, something we hadnt even been able to articulate ourselves. She also did not try a steer us towards what would make her profits bigger, but what really fit for us. For example, she took the rental option seriously and showed a ton of rentals that would have clearly meant a tiny drop in the bucket for her given the amount of daily effort she was putting in for us.Additionally, as an absolute personal loving gesture, she became buds with our three year old, which afforded me the capacity to quickly assess a place and move on to the next. Her warmth made an enormous difference, as one can imagine that schlepping a 3 year old around to 5 viewings a day while 8 months pregnant is hardly anyones idea of fun.We landed our perfect home when Meital called us to tell us that a fantastic home had just come on the market. She was able to get us in immediately, even before the brokers preview. Before anyone else had a chance to bid, we had already put in an offer and were in negotiations. She knows how to maneuver things to put her clients at an advantage, which is essential in this cutthroat real-estate market that we all have to navigate.During the escrow process we had our second child and Meital basically made everything happen. She responded to every inquiry immediately and thoughtfully and even kept track of all of the things that my baby brain was not able to. She connected us to solid insurance and loan professionals who came through during an intense family moment when we struggled to follow through. Meital was present for all of the inspections which meant a lot to us given our family demands. She made it all happen in the end. In sum, I admire her professionally and personally. She is incredibly committed, smart, competent, and caring. We truly felt taken care of by her during an incredibly stressful time. Anyone who is lucky enough to have the opportunity to have Meital on their side is setting themselves up success. She is absolutely the only realtor I would ever work with and I recommend her without any reservation. "

                      • "My husband and I were blown away at Meital's professionalism, expertise and attention to detail. She handled absolutely everything and remained 'present and available' every single step of the way. Her ability to negotiate and do the best by us was nothing less than 5 gold stars. We highly HIGHLY recommend buying a house with Meital - it was completely effortless.

                      • "Meital negotiated an unbelievable price for us on our new home, well below the market. After having worked with us on the sale of our home, she was able to lead us to the best fit for our family in our new neighborhood. Meital is detail oriented and was with us every step of the way on the purchase. She has a terrific understanding of the market and uses the available comp data to clearly develop the best and appropriate offer. We would definitely recommend Meital to help you with both the sale of your home and hoping you to locate and purchase your new home.

She is experienced and knowledgable in what to look for when purchasing a house. Additionally, Meital is an excellent negotiator and always had my back. She cares about the process and protecting her clients - what more could you ask for when making one of the bigger purchases in life? If I could add another star I would!

                      • "I personally had no appreciation or regard for real estate agents until I met Meital. Meital is super efficient about what she does and frankly was wholly instrumental in enabling my wife and I to get a phenomenonal property. Given her origin, tough but fair negotiation comes natural to her and is delivered excellently. She guided us through the process with transparency and foresight. Meital is a true professional and the only person to really work with for her chosen territories if you want to optimize the outcome.

                      • "Working with Meital completely changed our perception of what defines a good agent and how incredibly valuable it is to have a good agent to guide you through every stage of the process. Meital is exceptional in every respect. She is immensely knowledgeable about a wide range of important factors from market trends and investment potential to design and renovation issues to contract and negotiating technicalities. She is amazingly responsive, highly organized, covers all angles and details, and is completely upfront, transparent, and honest. We really appreciated and in fact deeply valued her no-nonsense opinions about neighborhoods, house features, negotiations, renovation ideas and potential, everything. She was also extremely patient with us as we went back and forth on which neighborhood would be best for us, what kind of house we wanted, and how much renovation we could tolerate. She made us feel like we were her only clients, which we were not, and always had plenty of time for us to show houses or just discuss options. It was clear that her main goal was for us to be happy at the end of the day. When we finally found a house we wanted to purchase, she had suggestions and options for people to do inspections, repairs, mortgage, insurance, and the rest. She did not push them on us, but we ended up using all of her suggestions and each of them turned out to be fantastic. For mortgage and insurance, her contacts (she gave several options) had better deals than our own trusted people and we went with hers. Meital also proved to be extremely level-headed and smart when our negotiations and our closing got a little hairy. She was a voice of reason when our emotions started to get the best of us. Through it all she was friendly, supportive, and a pleasure to work with."
