There's no greater reward than feeling as though we helped people achieve a really important, meaningful goal. We're honored to have received the following reviews from some of our past clients.
Working with Julia was truly a pleasure. Besides being a true professional she is quick witted with a great sense of humor. Always super-responsive and knowledgeable about the process and protocols, she also has a intuitive sense of reading one's taste and style. She quickly knew what would be a fit for me and also was conscious of school districts I wanted to be in. She is very dedicated and will drop everything to show you a property at your whim. Also, when it came to listing my rental, she was on top of everything. Being the busy person that I am, I wholly entrusted her to show the property, screen candidates and recommend tenants. Julia has my highest recommendation!

I could not give higher praise to the Kaptain brothers. I was told by a friend that if I listened to them and did what they suggested, my home would sell fast and for a lot of money. So I did. And it did. Any they took care of EVERYTHING. Even from construction projects to getting the AC fixed, they handled it all. I never had to check up on them and they were responsive at any time of the day or night. And what I like THE MOST is that they treat their clients EXACTLY the same whether you are selling a 500K dollar house or a 5 million dollar house. They work hard for you, and are simply great people.

We were first time homebuyers, in a market with limited inventory and even less at our price point. Jeff and Dave were nevertheless happy to take us on, and we always felt we had their full attention and all our questions answered very quickly. We inevitably hit some snags in the process, and they were as cool as a cucumber under pressure guiding us every step of the way. What a great experience working with them. We would highly recommend them to others, and will use them again in the future if we are ever crazy enough to do this again!

My husband and I were looking to buy our first home and were referred to Dave and Jeff by a friend. We cannot say enough great things about them. They were honest, patient and, most importantly, willing to do whatever it took to make sure that we ended up with a home that we loved. Our search ended up taking a while because of rising prices (we had to keep adjusting our budget and preferred neighborhoods) and also due to a deal falling out of escrow (because of some unreasonable sellers), but through it all Dave and Jeff worked hard to make the process as pleasant as possible as they guided us through the crazy Los Angeles real estate market. They always promptly respond to texts/calls, thoroughly answered our questions (and we had a LOT), and never ever pressured us into making a decision. At the end of the day, they helped us a find a fantastic home in an awesome neighborhood at a great price. We are thrilled! What else could you ask for?

We worked with Jeff to buy our first home. We had gone through a couple of different agents before finding him, and we weren't used to the attention and concern he paid us. It felt like we were his only clients with how fast he would reply to our queries. He worked hard to get us a good deal, always valuing our input instead of just telling us what he thought we should do. As first time buyers, he walked us through everything we needed to do, and getting us any information we needed. Overall we're very satisfied with our new home thanks to Jeff!

Obviously buying and selling a house is stressful and emotional time. I worked with Dave for nearly a year waiting for my dream house to come on the market. He was so patient and knew exactly what I was looking for -- he spoke to builders for me, got behind the scenes info on houses, and had a real passion for the actual process. When it came time to make the purchase, he coached me through the right offer, then was a true pro when it came to closing negotiations and dealing with all the inspectors and issues that pop up. I have a busy schedule and he really took the burden off me.
Selling my house was an equally great experience. Dave had a strong point of view on how much to ask, how to stage it, who to hire for what. It was incredibly thoughtful and I'm glad I took his advice as it sold for over asking within a few days of being listed. All the hard work and patience paid off. I'm so happy and appreciative. I could not have asked for a better experience! Thanks, Dave!

Working with Jeff and Dave was great. We had a condo that we wanted to sell and sell quickly. With Jeff's help, we had the unit listed and had 4 offers after the first showing. They are very knowledgable, have a lot of contacts throughout the industry (which is very helpful), they are transparent about everything that is going on, and will answer any question you have, no matter how in-depth. I have dealt with agents in the past that result in YOU doing more work than you should, but these guys are no nonsense and put in so much effort. They deserve what they get paid and don't take advantage of you. They also take a no pressure approach that allows you to make informed decisions. They also use latest technology which makes everything easier than the 100 trips to an office like it was in the past. If you are looking to buy or sell, just contact these guys. You won't regret it.

Dave is honestly the best agent anyone can ask for! He has helped me buy two homes and sell one all within a year! He is professional, attentive and most importantly honest. Dave gave me all the information I needed and also dealt with other agents, inspectors, assessors, etc for me. He really made the home-buying process as easy as it could be. Jeff is also super amazing! Dave and Jeff are a wonderful team!

I recently purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills. Initially I did my own research online, but soon realized I would need professional help. After reading reviews of local realtors I chose Kaptain & Kaptain. They had an impressive record and seemed to be a good fit for me. I must say that it was one of the best decisions of my life. The home search process was lengthy yet ultimately a great success. I worked primarily with Dave, but Jeff was always available when Dave was away. I was well aware of them sharing info and working as a team. Dave was so patient with me as I learned--I didn't know how much I didn't know! Because I was planning a move to LA from another state I was at a bit of a disadvantage. Sellers seemed to give preference to local buyers in this competitive market, as well as to all-cash offers. With Dave's guidance on strategy we were able to come up with a winning offer on a great property. He could have sold me on an "okay" house much sooner and been finished, but instead he put in the extra time and effort needed to find exactly what I wanted, in the neighborhood I wanted, and at a price I could afford. I have complete confidence in the Kaptain team. Also, Dave offered valueable advice on practical home improvements, ways to increase the property value, which home inspections would be the most important, etc., and provided me with a list of good tested contractors, handy men, insurance agents...the list goes on. I will use and recommend Dave and Jeff Kaptain for all future real estate needs!

Dave and Jeff, I wanted to formally thank you both for helping me sell my family home. Your job is selling real estate, and yet it is so much more, as homes represent not only financial security, but lives shared, families created, lifetimes of experiences. Thank you for facilitating a huge transition for my family... Thank you for being human, kind, professional, and always accessible.

Finding a perfect home is more than just looking at photos on a website.
