Ron Arnold
Keller Williams Brea/Fullerton
About Ron

We are in one of the craziest markets I have ever seen! With such limited inventory, houses are getting bid up to crazy prices. This is why it is more important than ever to have an advocate in your corner who truly wants what is your best interest. I am a native of Los Angeles County, and have lived in Orange County for over 30 years. For 18 of those years I ran a Christian Bookstore chain and LOVED what I did. Through a personal experience purchasing a home for my family in 96’ I developed a STRONG distaste for Realtors. When I walked into my home, I remember telling my agent that “after all the ugly and backroom dealings I had seen in his industry, the last profession I would ever work in was Real Estate ". But the Lord had other plans for me. 23 years later, I have been a Realtor full-time since 2002, and have served over 900 families buying or selling homes since then. I lead a fabulous team of 6 other Realtors and two additional operations staff. My team and I are different – we are dedicated to protecting our clients, respecting them, honoring them, and even loving them. We get great joy from treating people well in an industry that still does not do a great job of that. If you are looking for someone who will represent you with experience, skill, and most of all integrity; you will not be disappointed in selecting me and my team as your representative. My teams list to sales price ratio is 105%, with an average $62,000 more money for our seller's.

Each of our clients has their dedicated primary agent who's fully engaged from the start of the transaction to the successful close. As needed, the other team members will step in with their unique expertise to guarantee all clients receive our time tested Different And Better service proposition.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in South Whittier?
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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in South Whittier?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

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 South Whittier 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.
