Wendy Rich-Soto
Keller Williams Realty, LA Harbor
About Wendy

I began my real estate career in 2001 during what was considered a “normal market.” Since then, I have experienced the breakneck pace of the crazy up market as well as the plummet of the down market. Through each cycle of change I have adapted and grown with the market of the moment to guarantee my client's success. Recently receiving my broker's license it has helped me to acquire more knowledge and a flexibility that helps me better attend to my clients needs. Our team specializes in residential resale properties, multi-family and the luxury market. We pride ourselves on our ability to sell our listings each and every time. Our focus is on presenting your property in it's best light and pulling out all the stops to make sure that happens. In the past 18 years, I have sold 900+ homes! I have sold in both Northern and Southern California extensively and I have worked in the luxury market, new home construction and residential resale. I have taken listings after other agents have failed to sell the property and then was able to sell the home for people who had given up hope. With our buyers, we are patient and offer the guidance and support necessary for them to be successful in all types of markets. Our philosophy for real estate is predicated on the golden rule, treat others as you would have them treat you. We believe in giving each client my attention, respect and a work ethic that is second to none. We work hard to display an extraordinary commitment to our clients that very few people do. We consider their challenges to be our challenges, and we become part of their successes. This empathy, care and concern create an unusually high level of loyalty among our clients. It is easy for us to network with other agents in our field because they know we are professionals to the end. In addition to my new home and resale experience I have managed two Keller Williams offices and served on various boards. I have worked with both Interval House and The Ettie Lee Foundation to help in the communities in which I serve. For sellers, she offers staging services and a nominal fee compared to staging companies. She takes pride in how a listing is presented to the public and always uses professional photography and takes great care in how the property is launched. From broker tours to open houses and brochures to social media presentations including video about each home are cornerstones of her business plan for each selling client. Wendy has a full service team of assistants, inspectors, contractors, movers, staging services, photographers, video production company, escrow, title and more should her clients choose to hire.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in San Pedro?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in San Pedro?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in San Pedro to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in San Pedro is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
