A few words from our clients…

Stan and Gary make a strong team with complementary skills that made a difference in selling my home for more than I ever expected. They advised me perfectly on what to do to prepare my home for sale. They were always in communication, giving me updates. And, they made dealing with all the paperwork easy for me. Stan and Gary paid attention to even the smallest detail. Thank guys!!
Richard S.
Stan and Gary did an excellent job selling my place. They really know the market and I was able to get a full price offer in less than two weeks of listing. They were responsive, diligent and professional throughout the entire process. I would definitely work with Stan and Gary again and recommend them to anyone looking for a quality real estate agent in the South Bay.
Joe M.
Hey Stan and Gary, Thanks for the big win on Seaview; really fantastic outcome. You guys did a excellent job managing that process, not just the pricing/negotiations, but all the leg work with repairs, coordinating, etc.

“We have bought two homes and sold one home with Stan and Gary. They advised my wife and I brilliantly when we sold our home. We ended up getting more than we ever thought possible. They pushed us to sell our home aggressively and the results were outstanding. I highly recommend them to assist anyone with buying and selling a home.”
Grant K.
“Stan and Gary have helped my wife and I buy and or sell 3 homes now. We appreciate their knowledge and expertise in all facets of the home buying/selling process. We really appreciated their patience throughout the whole process of buying and selling our home. We have worked with them for well over 10 years now and look forward to working with them in the future.”

“Stan and Gary are seasoned professionals with great inter-personal skills who represented me as a selling and buying agent on two different properties in the So Cal South Bay area. They negotiated great deals when I was selling in a buyer’s market and buying in a seller’s market. In both cases, they diligently researched the current market conditions and made them work to my advantage. They negotiated great deals and facilitated fast, smooth closings, which resulted in good value and satisfaction for all parties. If I was contemplating buying or selling in the South Bay, Stan and Gary are the agents I would call.”
Lisbet T.
“My wife and I cannot recommend Stan and Gary enough as your real estate agents. They were perfect working as a team, making sure all aspects of our house hunting, contract negotiations and escrow closed without a hitch. They completely know the market – availability of both properties listed on the MLS and off-market listings, and their values. We really felt comfortable working with them knowing that all of our bases were covered and they were able to find our dream home at a great price.”
Tim W.
“It was a pleasure to work with Stan and Gary for our new home purchase. We struggled with other agents for a long time trying to find the house for our expanding family in a kid friendly neighborhood; with a great school system. However, Stan and Gary were able to make it happen for us! They found us an off market property that met our criteria and within budget. They are experts in the area and you really need someone who knows the local area and the other working agent networks.”
Betty W.
“Stan and Gary could not have been better! As a foreigner from England my knowledge of the real estate market here was limited. Stan and Gary walked me through everything – they advised, taught, and helped me through every stage of buying my first property in the U.S. Reliability, professionalism, and knowledge of the market make Stan and Gary realtors I would always recommend. Thanks Guys!”
Andy P.
“Stan provided outstanding services to me as a first time home buyer and put in extra time and effort that was never expected but always appreciated. He guided my family to an outstanding purchase. I would not hesitate to use Stan again.”
Jeff L.
“I have my own real estate license, but hired Stan and Gary to handle my own property because of their excellent reputation. WOW am I glad I did. They got top dollar in no time at all”.
Diane F.
“I am eager to recommend Stan as your agent. He has been great to work with, accommodating our constantly changing schedule, and tireless in his efforts to find us the perfect home. My wife and I were relocated here when the Air Force assigned us to Los Angeles AFB. We were given just eight days to find a place to live, at which point I would have to fly back to Colorado to finish another month of duty there. We tried for days searching online, driving up and down the streets and asking friends, all to no avail. With only a couple days left and what seemed like hopeless prospects, Stan stepped in. Within just hours, Stan was able to narrow down three choices for us to look at, all of which met our needs exactly. In fact, the three houses Stan showed us jumped to the top of our list as our #1, 2 and 3 choices of places to live. The house that we now live in was our #1 choice and it’s because of Stan’s hard work that we live in a beautiful home for the right price. Choosing Stan as your agent is the best thing you can do to make your house-hunting in Los Angeles simple and stress-free!”
Dion D.
“Stan was extremely helpful to me when I relocated from Michigan to Southern California recently. I had 5 days to find a place to live and was downsizing and struggling with what was available. He was patient and understanding about what I was looking for and took the time to research additional properties until we found what I was looking for in a home. I was extremely appreciative of his time and effort in helping me find a place to live. I have recommended Stan to numerous colleagues and I will work with Stan again in the future! He is a professional and really in-tune with what is important to his client. I highly recommend working with Stan Botello for your real estate needs!”
Andria M.
“Stan and Gary were my realtors during a purchase which included a build. These two professionals guided me all the way. When I had questions or concerns they were there. When I called, texted or emailed them they never failed to respond “that day.” Their integrity, knowledge and dedication was unbelievable. They were the most service oriented team I could have ever imagined and I felt very fortunate and grateful to have them working for me!”
Patsy S.
Stan Botello is OUR real estate agent! He helped us purchase our first home in 2000 and when it was time to sell (and buy a new home) Stan was the one and only agent we called. We cannot recommend the Botello/Senser team HIGHLY ENOUGH! From the moment we got in touch with them to the time we closed escrow, they worked tirelessly to cover each and EVERY detail. Any questions we had were effortlessly answered for us with the utmost patience. They took the time to walk us through each aspect until we were completely comfortable.

Over the years they have conducted 3 transactions for us (bought 2 homes and sold 1). When it came time to sell, they provided guidance and expert advice on home improvements that would maximize our sales price…and boy was it great advice! Our home had multiple offers, it sold quickly AND it sold over list price! Stan and Gary were in constant contact, handling the largest to the smallest details of our transactions. They even took care of some very significant details at our home while we were out of town visiting family!

We couldn’t be happier with Stan Botello and Gary Senser and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to family, friends and strangers alike! Thanks so much Stan and Gary!

“Stan and Gary were tremendous in helping me buy my first house. I met with many brokers when I began my search and they all tried to push me into signing a buyer’s agreement. Stan and Gary were different in that they never asked me to sign any agreements. They just asked me questions and listened to what I was looking for. Because of this approach, the very first place they showed me was perfect. Better yet, it was an off-market deal and hadn’t been listed to the public yet, so I got a great value. They worked with me throughout the entire closing process and the deal closed smoothly. They have been working in the South Bay for years and I highly recommend them!”
