eXp Realty - Southwest Riverside Testimonials

We couldn't have worked with a better realtor!

!! Marquita is amazing. We found our house the 2nd day we looked. We moved up our closing date by 2 weeks and Marquita made the close happen on time! She is very efficient and quick with making things happen. She knew what we wanted and didn't take no for an answer. Thank you for taking care of us, Marquita! We will definitely be using you in the future to sell our home you helped us pick out :)


Dana found us a hell of a deal on an amazing house.

Without her, we wouldn't have even known about it. She works where she lives, and knows the neighborhoods inside and out. We really enjoyed working with her, and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.

To Everyone, I am sure you have heard many stories such as so many people with a hardship losing their homes and the struggle they had to go through.

After living in my house for 12 years like many people, my family was suddenly faced with a great deal of financial aberdeen. From not being able to keep up with the mortgage payment to many other credit challenges. I find out about Sheila Cohen from my neighbor who Sheila helped to sell his house. I never thought I could get out of my house. I decided to call Sheila and as I spoke to her she calmed me down and assured me she will take care of us. Through the most difficult financial institution and the hard journey, Sheila finally was able to sell our home and get us out of the climbing hill. This maybe a short note about Sheila but I got to tell you there are many Realtors out there and Sheila is not just one of them, she is a family member who will go to war for you. I have been recommending Sheila to all of my friends who are in need of help and I do the same for you. Sheila , many many thanks to you for not giving up. You won the war for us which I never thought was possible. For many years you will be my friend and we adopt you as part of our family. Many many thanks. Mark & Megan.

I Larry Lacefield had the pleasure of working with Sheila Cohen on the sale of my property 5253 Placentia PKWY Las Vegas NV.

Romeo represented me as my real estate agent when I was looking to buy a house.

He found the perfect home for me and my family. His persistence and dedication to us throughout the entire process was awesome. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. I know I will use him again for any of my real estate needs. Thanks again Romeo!

Leroy Corte-Real

I met Romeo at an open house when he was representing a seller.

I had several realtors show me properties, none of them very motivated. When Romeo called me, I mentioned a few houses I’d like to see. Within less than 24 hours he had them set up to show me. Whenever I called him to set up showings, he did them immediately and often that same day. He is knowledgeable, aggressive and motivated when it comes to finding the right listings for his clients. That goes for the sales negotiations too. He is trustworthy and I would use him again.

Kathie Lustig

This was my first home that I have owned.

So I was very nervous and I asked a lot of questions and looked at a lot of houses. I'm glad that Romeo represented me as the buyer. I talked to a few other professionals, but I could tell that I was just another check for them. Cesar was very patient and helped my wife and I find the perfect home! I felt that I could talk to him about anything, and that no question was a stupid question. All the documents were professionally prepared, explained in detail, and promptly changed when necessary. I highly recommend Cesar and I intend to have him represent me when I sell this property. He is definitely a professional to keep on speed dial.

Desmond Bell

I sold several investment properties last year and hired Cesar "Romeo" to get the job done.

He really impressed me with his communication, knowledge and negotiation skills. There are a lot of moving parts in a real estate transaction and I always felt comfortable knowing that Romeo had everything handled. Romeo helped me purchase several great investment properties as well, he has a knack for finding great deals, especially off-market properties that other realtors or investors don't know about. I give Romeo my highest recommendation and will continue to use him when I need to buy or sell a house.

Mike Sumsky

We hired Romeo to be our listing agent and I am glad we did.

He is extremely diligent and knowledgeable in all his duties as an agent. We have made multiple home transactions in the past and you will not find anyone else who will outwork Romeo. He was truly a pleasure to work with.

Aaron Anderson

Before coming to California from the east coast, I knew that I wanted to have my own place by the time I arrived here.

I was recommended to Romeo by a good friend who I met while stationed overseas. For the first month or so, the only communication that I had with Romeo was through phone calls, text messages and emails. He is very knowledgeable about the local area. He worked with me while I was searching for the right place to call home and also suggested some locations that went under the radar while I was searching online. He advised me, guided me through all of the paperwork process and went above and beyond to get me the best possible deal on the location that I went with. I highly recommend Romeo and I know that he’ll work just as hard for you.

Carlos Jimenez

We met Romeo at an open house when he was representing a seller.

We had worked with other realtors before and it was easy to make out that this person has what we were looking for - diligence, knowledge and experience. He has impressive communication and negotiation skills which helped us buy our property at the right price. We could talk to him about anything and never felt he was short of patience. All the documents were very well prepared and were promptly changed whenever requested. Not just before purchase/sell, he will help answer all the question post the transaction is closed. We definitely give Romeo our highest recommendations and will definitely continue to use him knowing that he is extremely trustworthy and reliable to help make such big investments.

Manish & Nafeesa

Cesar came to us from a family member.

Cesar was able to jump right in to obtain facts that had eluded us for months. Equipped with the new information, Cesar was able to submit a successful bid and within a couple of months, the escrow closed.

Doug Schmidt

Romeo is a great agent and I’m so glad we used him to purchase our home.

He was very professional, responsive, and a great negotiator. We bought our house long distance and he was very accommodating to our schedule, we were also able to do everything remotely. Everything went smoothly with our purchase thanks to Romeo! We would highly recommended him, especially to a military family PCSing.

We can’t complement Ms.

Kimberly (Best Choice Realty, Tacoma, WA) enough for her mediating the FSBO sale of our home as the buyer’s agent. She negotiated a “mutually acceptable” PSA, arranged buyer sewer, home, and appraiser inspections; timely prepared the myriad of real estate documents for e-signature, monitored lender and title/escrow processing, and continually advised all parties of progress towards closing. And she managed the sale of our WA home while in CA. Ms. K is not only a competent agent, she has an engaging personality and cheerful demeanor. She is indeed a “Best Choice!” {Tom & Sherri O.) https://www.zillow.com/profile/Kimberly-L.-Abapo-Sapangh/#reviews

Tom & Sherri O.

We recently bought our first house and it was a little bit scary and stressful to deal with so many people - escrow, title, lenders, agents.

That's why it was so important to have an agent like Sheila Cohen on your side. She made the whole ordeal as smooth as possible and was always there for us trying to find the right home for us that suits our needs and our budget, dealing with the sellers agent and being tough if necessary and even words of faith and encouragement when small problems almost made the deal fall through. Sheila was always there to lend a helping hand no matter what time of day it was. Thank you Sheila for all your great work and professionalism. Its been a pleasure doing business with you!

Jorg & Remi T.

In the spring we decided to sell two of our houses, both were rentals.

We met Sheila Cohen over Labor Day weekend. She had stopped in to see if she could help. We gave her a try and listed both homes with her on the same day. To my surprise I was impressed with her integrity and work ethic. It took 4 months but Sheila prevailed and sold one of our houses and cleared escrow prior to year end. It took open houses every weekend and a lot of work on Sheila's part but she got the job done. She updated us weekly on what had occurred during the week. After 30 years dealing with realtors there are only two things that really count: HONESTY AND RESULTS! Sheila Cohen has these traits and as they say "the right stuff"!

Pete & Janice O.

Thank you for keeping me up-to-date with your real estate newsletters.

Let it be said its nice to know there are realtors out there like Sheila who look after the interest of their clients! Your integrity is your strength and I had no doubt that I could trust you as my realtor. Thank you for everything!

Deborah P.

To whom it may concern: like so many residents of California, our family was significantly affected by the declining real estate market.

Choosing the right solution was difficult for us until we talked to our neighbor Sheila Cohen. She took the time to clearly explain our options to avoid foreclosure. We just completed a long and complicated short sale. Sheila Cohen consistently showed her compassion, commitment and tenacity by monitoring all aspects of this transaction. We relocated while escrow was still open and Sheila kept us informed of everything on a daily basis. Having Sheila in our corner during this difficult time made this so much smoother. Life has returned to normal and we are forever grateful for her support.

Dave and Mary D.

My husband and I were working with an inexperienced agent for two months prior with working with Nikki when we decided to sell our home.

Given the short amount of time frame we had ,Nikki was very professional and very dedicated in getting our house sold so we can purchase our new dream house. Needless to say we got our house listed and sold within 30 days. She has made selling our home and buying a new house such a breeze. Our experience with her has been truly amazing and I would highly recommend her.

Linda Gradney

I highly recommend Nikki.

I was a first time home buyer and she helped me through what I thought was going to be a long, stressful process. It actually wasn't. Nikki negotiated to get me the best deal, ensured all processes were followed in a timely manner, helped me find a mortgage company, worked with me with escrow, and basically did everything humanly possible to make this is as easy as I feel it could have been. She also listened and gave great advice when I was worried about a process I'd never been through. She also helped me with a last minute change even after escrow closed. Most importantly, I felt she was completely honest and upfront with me throughout the entire process. I feel completely confident recommending Nikki to anyone

Lisa Pons

Nikki was great to work with.

I am a first time home buyer and as you can imagine, that came with an abundance of questions, which Nikki answered without leaving me feeling like I was a nuisance. I chose her because (as you see) we have the same name in common, hoping that would bring me luck while fishing in the agent sea. She showed me many homes before I finally found the one that fit, but never made me feel like I had to "hurry up and choose one!" We even attempted a few offers which didn't work out, but not meant to be! It helped me get my feet wet in the process though. ?? I appreciate that it was not a frustrating experience. I am sure you will also find Nikki a pleasure to work with, just as I did. THANK YOU NIKKI!!!

Nikki Washington

We found Nikki on the internet.

We are originally from So. Cal but were living in Florida at the time, trying to transition back to So. Cal. We worked with her for over a year back and forth and she was so willing to help us. We were back and forth so many times on whether to sell our condo, or buy a house or both. She stuck with us on the process and gave us great advice, investigated things for us without any obligation. Once we started looking on Trulia and made a final decision to move back to California we found several great options in Murrieta and went forward. During the process and our transition which was extremely stressful and difficult she was the only constant and positive bright spot in the whole process. She was our advocate at every turn in the process. We had trouble with both sellers and lenders and due to Nikki’s professionalism and wealth of knowledge and years of experience she was able to help us through every turn and teach the lenders a thing or two along the way. Having someone with her level of experience made all the difference in the world. She even helped us with our difficulties in our Florida sell due to the inexperienced realtor and walked us through some of those challenges as well. We would definitely use her in the future for any transaction as long as she is still practicing and we are still buying and selling. We have already referred her to many of our friends and family without hesitation

Perry and Abby Pursley

I highly recommend working with Nikki!

! She is very attentive, listens to what you are looking for and is great at closing the deal. We were working with another realtor for about 2 months prior to working with Nikki with no results. Once we starting working with Nikki, she helped us find and close on our place in a week!! She is very good at keeping in touch throughout the process. Again, we are very happy with her and will contact her again when needed. Thanks again Nikki, you did a great job!!

Waylon Scott

Very knowledgeable about the area.

Very quick response time to return phone calls. Best realtor I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Whenever I decide to list my property (probably in 4 or 5 years) I'm definitely using Mark.

Nancy G.

I connected with Mark and quickly grew confident he was the agent we needed to work with, handle all our needs, and most importantly had INTEGRITY!

Mark is the person whom all would look for when speaking about ethics, honesty, forthright, and dedicated. As a former Marine, I look for these things in a person because this is important. His leadership is what drives him to excel above others and exceeds all expectation's; he did that for my family and I. He is a the agent you need working on your side and gets things done. As a Veteran I highly recommend you waste no time with others and get him working for you.

John (Marine Veteran) and Dawn W.

It's very hard to find an agent that doesn't see you as just a number.

Mark is an honest, trustworthy and reliable agent! I loved the fact that I never had to call him for updates because he always kept in contact. We are so blessed to have found him.! This will definitely not be the last time we work with him!!!

William (Active Navy) and Lizette A.

Mark was personable and forthcoming.

He was more concerned with finding us a home that suited our needs and in a safe environment. He responded promptly to all calls or text. If he didn't know the answer he found out and got back to us. He followed through with all the paperwork and even had to do part of the other realtors jobs. He not only helped us find a fabulous home but sold our current home promptly so that they closed simultaneously and with little work for us. Yes I would recommend him again.

Bob M. and Cindy R.

As first time buyers he made this a wonderful experience.

From looking for our home to closing escrow. He was always a phone call or text away.He was always keeping us in the loop. He was patient and committed. He was experienced and gave us advise of what to look for when looking for a safe neighborhood. We are truly satisfied with Mark and I couldn't have had a better experience especially being first time buyer.

Jessica and Theresa L.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark to sell our home in Temecula and had a very positive experience.

Mark was friendly, courteous, and was helpful during the entire process. He always made himself available to answer questions and offer guidance. With Mark it’s not just business it’s personal - he will put you first. He had our best interests in mind and was committed to selling our home. At every step of the process we always felt like we were in capable hands. Mark has the professionalism, knowledge, and business savvy to get the job done and is an asset to the real estate community. We are thankful to have worked with Mark and highly recommend him.

James and Armida S.

Mark puts his personal touch on his dealings with us, that is, he pus his clients' (our) interests first.

He helped us find our home & helped us also through the intricacies of the loan process. Apart from being our realtor, he has become a friend. A home buyer is in good hands with Mark.
