  • Sackin-Stone helped me buy a home

      Lane and his team exceeded all of my expectations and more during these last few months. As a night nurse my schedule is not typical and no matter the day or time Lane was always responding to my requests and scheduling showings on short notice. As a first time home buyer, Lane never made me feel rushed and was extremely patient with me through this process, making sure that I was completely satisfied with my decisions and fully understood everything along the way. I was also introduced to two other members of his team, Gary and Stipe, both of which provided the same positive and professional experience! The Sackin-Stone team made this process fun, exciting, and educational and I would HIGHLY recommend them for new and experienced buyers! Thank you Lane for making this often stressful and frustrating experience a very smooth one for me and for helping me find/purchase such an amazing first home!

    • Gary was nothing short of extraordinary in every step of our home-buying process. He knows Huntington Beach inside and out, and his creative negotiating skills helped us avoid a bidding war and score the home of our dreams! He dropped everything to show us the home within hours of listing and process a same-day offer. He was also extremely attentive and professional throughout the escrow period. He kept us updated at every step, checked in often to make sure we were on track, and went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were addressed. In addition to his expertise, he is also honest, hilarious and fun to work with! For all of this, we couldnt more highly recommend Gary. I am certain that we would not be living in our dream home right now if it werent for him. If you are looking to buy a home, look no further than Gary Elvidge to accomplish that. Thank you Gary!!!

    • Wow, where do we start?! Finding a home was always in the back of our minds, but just the thought of the entire process sounded exhausting and stressful. And then we had Gary Elvidge help us, and WOW did he make everything so easy for us! He provided us with exceptional service, dedication, and hard work. From driving us to view multiple houses to checking in with us daily - we quickly found our dream home! From the minute our sellers accepted our offer, Gary and his Team made going through escrow a breeze! That was most likely due to excellent communication - (with us being first time homebuyers) he explained exactly how escrow works, the entire process step by step, what to expect, and what we needed to provide. Our 30 days in escrow went by fast, and before we knew it, we had the keys in our hands! Whether youre a first time homebuyer or an experienced homebuyer, we highly recommend you have Gary help you! I know for a fact we only found our forever home because of him.

    • I am a realtor in Washington State. Gary helped my daughter purchase her first home in Fountain Valley. He was OUTSTANDING! He went above and beyond his duty as a realtor. He really cares about his clients. He answered every question we had, countlessly reassuring my daughter (as this was her first purchase.) The best thing about Gary is his honesty. My daughter was on a tight budget. He could of told us many properties we sent to him would be great to buy. But he did not. He was HONEST and told us if it was a bad & unsafe area, bad schools or bad resale. He could of NOT told us that and had her in a home alot sooner. We really admired that about him. She will definitely use him again, as I will in the future. I will also refer him to ANYONE I know that is thinking of purchasing/selling something in S. Cali. Thank you Gary!

    • Philip Talbert is one of the most professional, knowledgable and delightful people we have ever worked with. Referred to us by a friend, he knows real estate well and has a design sense that makes his real estate opinions priceless. He is a wonderful combination of eager and patient. Always available, he made the tedious and frustrating process of house-hunting a true adventure. He showed us many houses, always listening to our feedback and offering alternatives and encouragement. When we walked into the house we live in today, he said "This is the one!", we put in an offer and had a totally seamless 30-day escrow. He was 100% correct. It is!! Every detail was taken care of by Philip and his outstanding staff. We are thrilled to be in our new house and credit Philip for making our dream come true.

    • Lane Stone and "The Sackin-Stone Team" are awesome realtors and that is the truth. Professional, personable, efficient, effective, genuine, hard-working and trustworthy. You can also check out "The Sakin-Stone Team" for more reviews. Lane Stone headed his team in selling our townhouse in Huntington Beach and the results were record breaking. We got 10 offers in 3 days and closed under 30 days of accepting offer at $10K over listing and appraisal price, with as-is condition. They helped us prepare the house for sale by providing cost-effective contractors for new carpet, bathtub re-glazing and FREE staging of bed, pictures and decor. Their marketing skills are state-of-the-art and unmatched by typical realtors. Communication, expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills are above and beyond expectations. Lane Stone even helped us with other rental house for sell in Riverside when that realtor was unable to provide us with cost basis analysis for taxes. We could go on-and-on, but in summary: LANE STONE is the best!!!

    • HOW DO I LOVE THE SACKIN-STONE TEAM?? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS!! From beginning to end, Scott, Lane, Philip, Catalina, and others from behind the scenes, were nothing short of professional and helpful in every way. Sackin-Stone sold our home faster than expected, in a questionable market and the holidays quickly approaching. To us, this transaction was bound to have its challenges from the get-go. Surprisingly, my concerns weren't even a "blip" on their radar. They jumped in and keenly implemented a strategic plan that carried this transaction to success! It's interesting how your real estate agent becomes a teacher, hand-holder, counselor, friend and so much more during a life-changing time for sellers. My husband and I are retiring to another state and they even recommended an agent on the other end, who has the same integrity and noble characteristics of the Sackin-Stone Team. We have now purchased our new, out-of-state, home and I cannot thank the Sackin-Stone Team enough for their help and generosity. They are complete rock stars in my book! Hire them now, without hesitation -- you won't be disappointed!

    • I connected with the Sackin-Stone Real Estate team through a friend. They came highly recommended as a company that would go above and beyond any expectations that a buyer/seller would have. As it turned out it was all absolutely true! Scott Sackin and Philip Talbert were the consummate professionals. They are seasoned veterans of the real estate industry and were an absolute joy to work with on both buying our new home and selling the old one. They pay attention to the clients needs and desires and were never too busy to answer any and all questions we had. They offered sound and solid advice on how to enhance our home to attract potential buyers. They thoroughly explained everything at each step, which alleviated the anxiety we might have had. The entire buying and selling process was made so easy for us due to their vast experience and professionalism. Scott and Philip are not your average real estate agents. They are top of the line. They don't come any better than this team. Not to forget their invaluable right hand office coordinator Catalina, who is at the top of her game along with her cheery personality. If you are looking to buy/sell a home I highly recommend Sackin-Stone. You will not be disappointed.

    • We worked with Scott Sackin himself to sell my mother's house. My father passed away, and my sisters and I wanted to move my elderly mom from her multi-level town home in Huntington Beach closer to where we lived. My mother insisted she work with Scott, who helped her buy the place. Boy, are we glad she insisted! From my first meeting with Scott, it was clear he was a caring person. My mother has some cognitive issues, takes a long time to communicate and is often confused. Scott was really patient with her and made it clear to me that he's had plenty of experience with our type of situation. He promised help with getting the house ready for sale, leveraging his network on our behalf. His office staff was orderly and very responsive to our needs. Though Scott's practice covers a large area of Orange County, it was clear that he was intricately familiar with the market forces at play in my mom's condo development. He gave us an estimate of what he thought the house would go for, and was respectful of our approach to selling the place. We trusted him to stage the house tastefully (he did) and with setting an initial price that would be aggressive enough to get buyers in the door and generate multiple offers, but not low enough that we left money on the table. He gave a thorough analysis of the comparables in the area, and answered all our questions. He won our confidence on his command of the market and strength of his analysis. In the end, the house went WAY above asking exceeding everyone's expectations. Escrow was smooth sailing, and he continued to check in on details, seamlessly working with my mother and a team of three daughters and a brother-in-law! When we closed, we received yet another gracious call. We are huge fans of Scott. If you choose him, you are in good hands.

    • Scott and his dedicated team were the only team we called to assist us with selling our home and purchasing our dream home. Scott, Phillip and team are professional, knowledgeable and resourceful. Our old home needed repairs and paint, Scott and team stepped in and had referrals for all needed services. The work was completed timely and resulted in the quick sale of our house. Likewise, when our new house needed repairs as a result of the purchasing walk through, Scott and team ensured items were repaired by competent service providers. I can honestly say we wouldn't have our new home without Scott. He assisted us with all hurdles, ensuring we received the outcome we desired. Thanks again Scott, you're the BEST!

    • Phillip and his team listed our family home of 40 years. From my prospective the sale was going to be tricky because the home was under a reverse mortgage and the clock was ticking to get the house sold. We originally listed the house at price we thought would be attractive to investors and sell the home "as-is" since it had not really been upgraded in 40 years. The investors were not interested in our price, so Phillip suggested that we freshen up the home and extend our target market to everyone. I was reluctant to do this initially because I was nervous about the cost of renovating, but Phillip put a plan together that didn't "break the bank" and I agreed to proceed. Once the renovations were complete and the house was staged, we re-listed the home for $50,000 more than we had originally and after the first open house we received nine offers. After some counter-offers we accepted an offer over our new listing price. Selling the family home was difficult, but Phillip and his team were always there to help me through the process. Please thank Scott as well.

    • My wife and I had a dream of moving to Hawaii, and not only did Scott Sackin and Philip Talbert help us sell our property in Orange County, they went above and beyond to find a real estate agent in Hawaii for us too!.... We absolutely loved the agent he referred us to, and, taking that off our to-do list was an immense relief! I think the best way of describing Scott and Philip is to say that they not only know their business and are experts at what they do, but if you work with them you get a sense that you are not just a client, but also a friend. They care, and it shows.

    • Lane Stone from the Sackin-Stone team went above and beyond to sell our condo. He stayed in constant communication with us throughout the whole process, answered all of our questions (even when I asked too many), and was very knowledgeable about the prices of other properties in our neighborhood. I was super impressed by his professionalism and his attention to detail. He definitely made selling our home a stress free experience. My husband and I are also using Lane to help find our next home and cant thank him enough for all that he has done for us. I would recommend him to anybody looking for a realtor!

    • Philip, Scott, Lane and the rest of the entire team are frankly amazing. They not only took care of every detail of our most recent two transactions, they also helped negotiate on our behalf and provided excellent "coaching" (I asked them if they are part therapist because there is so much to talk through in buying or selling a property)! Plus they are just top notch human beings who care deeply about their people, their customers, and the quality of their work. They are all about customer service and pull it off in every aspect of what they do.

    • Philip is a true professional that knows the real estate business. He has been my real estate agent for about twenty years. Over that time he has helped me successfully purchase and sell two residual properties and buy one residual property remotely in North Carolina. Philip's efforts and results in each of those transactions were exceptional and his negotiation skills netted me high returns and swift purchase and sell transactions. His experience and knowledge of the local Los Angeles market, approach to proper staging, and ability to negotiate the best prices and work with other agents, buyers, and sellers is unsurpassed. Additionally, my experience with Philip has shown that his skill set also includes helping clients successfully purchase homes outside of California. In my opinion, Philip sets the highest of standards for all the services a real estate agent can provide a client. He can do it all! I highly recommend him for all such services.

    • We have dealt with Scott and his office for many years and he is hands down the best real estate person I have ever worked with...this after buying and selling 8 different houses as we moved around the country. Even after working with him in Southern California, Scott has continued to be our go-to person as he has been able to refer us to agents in other states and even other countries. We have specifically worked with him in 1993 for a purchase, 1997 for a sale, 2005 for a referral, 2008 for another referral, and 2016 most recently for an additional referral. Scott was responsible for getting us an agent when we sold a home in Michigan and purchased a home in North Carolina. He even got us a referral to a great agent when we purchased a vacation apartment in Spain! We are so impressed, we have referred several other friends and relatives to Scott and he has consistently come through for them as well. Scott is unquestionably the best, most professional person you will ever work with in the real estate industry. You will be thrilled if you call him!

    • I could not have asked for better realtors than the Sackin Team. Not only did Phil and Scott help my daughter and son-in-law find the perfect home, they sold a townhome for me so I could assist with the down payment on the new home. It was very stressful since I needed to sell the townhome to give them the money for the down payment. The timing had to be perfect and they came through masterfully! They also got me top dollar in the complex. I would recommend them highly. They are excellent negotiators and very helpful in getting contingencies cleared/satisfied in order to close escrow quickly.

    • Philip is our "go to" realtor. He helped us buy a house 12 years ago and there was no question that we would use him now. We found a house on-line when Philip didn't even know we were looking. He jumped on board and helped us every step of the way. When we were one of 6 bidders for the house we fell in love with, Philip was masterful in the negotiations and the whole team (Scott and Catalina) worked their magic and the house is now ours! Philip is always attentive to every detail in home buying. It is a complex process but we took it step-by-step and he just kept us moving forward. Philip's integrity, honesty and care for the client are the priorities in his business.

    • Lane was everything you want out of a realtor. He was so professional, yet fun to work with. He responded promptly to every request and was available to show houses whenever we wanted. We were first time home buyers and Lane answered all of our questions in plain English. He was honest and extremely knowledgeable about the good and bad neighborhoods throughout Orange County and even Long Beach. We really couldnt have asked for a better agent. We fully recommend him and wish we could give him more stars!
