We used Scott Kato when we bought our Huntington Beach condo six years ago. We were very pleased with him as a realtor. He was not pushy, very mellow, very responsive. He did his best to make us happy. Later, when we needed more space, he and Jessica Panzica helped us buy a new house and sell the condo as painlessly as possible. Scott and Jessica even made sure we were happy for months after the sales were complete.

Scott and his team are top notch! They are friendly, thoughtful, thorough and honest. We definitely felt like we had a great team on our side. This is our second time working with them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

I already had an agent that a friend recommended when I found the Kato Group. I went to the meeting just to check it out, thinking I'd remain loyal to the other agent. I was very impressed with how organized the company is, and they already had places to show me. They were extremely attentive, even with my small budget. My other agent never even asked to meet me or find out specifics of what I wanted and I was already in escrow through the Kato Group by the time she contacted me and said I was pre-approved for a loan. It really highlighted how efficient and professional the Kato Group is!

6/25/2015 I was referred to The Kato Group by my lender and she was right! The ultimate in customer service, patience for picky buyers like myself ;) and good listeners to understand my 'must-haves' and only showed me homes that met minimum and above. Bravo Kato Group!

I've had the distinct pleasure to be represented by the Kato Group. They're led by Scott who's a true hard working professional that's dedicated to his client's satisfaction. This is a common theme that trickles down to everyone on his team. Everyone is a pleasure to work with especially they're preferred lender Luz. She knows her craft! I don't have the best credit but she helped me create a plan to get approved for the home I wanted. I'm so grateful to the Kato Group for all thier help and expert advice throughout this purchase. I wouldn't have wanted to be represented by anyone else. I'll definitely be referring them to my family and friends!

Jessica and Scott went above and beyond to help us buy our first home. They worked closely with the CLS Lending and helped navigate quickly any challenges that popped up during the process. I would highly recommend Jessica and Kato Group to all!

We have worked with Scott Kato for the last 10 years, purchasing and selling many properties, and leasing our home. Scott has always gone that extra mile with price comparisons, and advise to get us the top dollar. When we first came to Long beach I locked myself out of our condo. The only one I knew was Scott, he went to his office, drove then to my location, and let me into my home. We now live out of the country. When selling a property, instead of going to the trouble to get paper work back and forth, his company has set up and legal auto sign over the Internet. LIFE MADE EASY! Kato is our realtor!
