Madeline M. sold a home in Orinda

When we spoke with Ben about possibly selling our mom's home in Orinda, we found Ben instantly likeable and highly professional. His excellent firsthand real estate knowledge of homes in Lamorinda; his help with guiding us to resources we needed; his ability to steadfastly get us from start to finish; his calm, responsive, professional demeanor, all made for an extremely comfortable and successful experience. Highly recommend Ben and the Olsen team!

Julie D. sold a home in Moraga

My husband and I worked with Ben and Sue on both the purchase and the resale of our home in Moraga. They went above and beyond what we expected when Sue went door to door to find us the perfect home. The home was a complete remodel and they continued to help us even after the purchase with contractor recommendations. When it came time to sell due to a relocation, there was no question we would use them as our listing agents. The property was very popular and had multiple offers. They helped navigate us through that process and we were very happy with the results. We considered them not only our realtors, but our friends. Would highly recommend.

Mike A. sold a home in Moraga

I have worked with Ben on leasing a home and ultimately the sale of the home. I have been impressed by his ability to consistently work in the best interests of his clients by listening and acting in a warm, friendly, and professional way. He quickly resolves issues in a win-win manner. His focus on building trusted long-term relationships is frequently demonstrated by his willingness to help on any issue as an agent, neighbor, and member of the community. He has assisted in finding resources to help prepare a home for lease or sale or simply helping me find someone if I need something done on my home. He has even gone as far as advancing his own funds to help move along a schedule. His Olsen team help provide access to many potential buyers or renters and are invaluable in providing contract support throughout the process. These are the qualities I look for on important real estate transactions and highly recommend Ben and the Olsen team.

John R. bought a home in Moraga

I was lucky enough that the broker who showed me the first condo I looked at physically (spent much time web hunting) was Erin Kelly from The Olsen Team. She was fabulous; showed me 3 condos despite not having scheduled it, educated me quickly as to the the market, and most importantly guided me to the winning bid and then the closing on the condo I wanted. Not easy in a rising market. The Olsen Team was behind Erin with great service, and the whole thing went smoothly. The night I came home after seeing the first 3 condos , I was a little discouraged. My son sad "Pops, you should hire the Olsen Team, they're world class." Then I looked at Erin's email and realized I had. And now I know he was right as well. Thank you Erin for the hard work, patience and great advice.

Stephanie P. bought a home in Moraga

Lori is such a pro, and a kind and trustworthy person in general. We fell in love with a house very early in our search (like Day 1!) and needed to move quickly. Lori did a fantastic job of helping us feel great about our decision, spent extra time with us at the house, and gave us reasonable, grounded advice that ultimately made ours the winning bid. She continued to follow up through the loan process, helped us secure a quick close, and followed up after we moved in. We said a couple of times that we almost wished the process hadnt moved so fast, because we loved spending time with Lori. We look forward to referring her to our family and friends, because we know they will be in excellent hands.
