My wife and I met Sergio in December of 2014 when we were looking for a rental home. Even though we didn’t rent a home from him, his knowledge of the area, responsiveness, and friendliness left a lasting impression. Once we decided to purchase a home, we knew that Sergio would be a agent. Over the course of a few months, we looked at too many homes to count but Sergio stuck with it and landed us the perfect home for a great price! Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Riverside/San Bernardino area.
This is the second time Sergio has helped us find a home. This time we were purchasing a home for my father-in-law and his wife. His wife is super picky and Sergio took the time to show us homes in more than one city. When we finally found the house that would work for them, Sergio guided us through the process. If we had a question about the roof, he was on it and had someone come out to look at it. Any questions we had for Sergio, he answered it. Any concerns or questions, he would address them or contact the selling agent to get the answer. As stressful as the process was, Sergio was always level headed and was always upbeat. He really went above and beyond to make this a successful purchase. My father-in-law and his wife now live happily in their home in Riverside.
Sergio is very responsive and offered a lot of great advice. He is knowledgeable and extremely patient. At any point in our long process of house searching was he pushy, he was always looking out in our best interest. I would highly recommend his service to anyone seeking a helpful realtor.
I highly recommend Sergio I live an hour and a half away from the home I was going to purchase and Sergio was nice enough to take my parents around for 4-5 months. Even after escrow, Sergio dropped the keys off to my parents for me. He held my hand throughout the entire process. Sergio makes you feel like you are his only client. He answers his phone, he text messages you, he answers your questions and you never doubt his honesty.
Where to start? That’s where my husband and I were two years ago. First time home buyers who had no clue what we were doing or really even what we wanted. My husbands childhood home became available and through a stroke of luck his online inquiry put us in touch with Sergio. The house had been a disaster and Sergio immediately started working with us to find our perfect home. 2 years later we are finally home owners. My husband and I were extremely indecisive and beyond trigger shy. Being a younger married couple taking on a mortgage is a big deal. For literally 2 years ( We had a child and Sergio and his wife had a child in between) Sergio took the time to send us listings and show us listings. He never treated us beyond amazing regardless of our age, indecisiveness, lack of real estate knowledge, or our budget. Literally 2 years of home shopping with a couple who was not sure if they were ready. He was never pushy, the exact opposite sharing his personal experiences and giving advice through out the process, to only purchase when we were comfortable and when we loved the home. We finally found it. Multiple bumps on the road later from the seller having a new agent and a so to speak non existent lending company, Sergio was there for us literally every step of the way. Even the purchase transaction he was there when we signed our papers to go over them when our own lender was not. He made sure our best interests were taken care of even to his own expense, literally, at some points. Sergio is an amazing realtor and after two years I’m happy to say friend. You will not find a better realtor that will truly have your best interests at heart, and make sure you are completely happy and comfortable in your new home.
A family member recently bought their first home and Sergio was their agent. They said that Sergio walked them through the entire process with ease by providing them with all the info and tools they needed to find their first home. They were very happy with his services and based on their feedback I knew it was a good choice to have Sergio list my home for sale.
It was my first time listing a home so I wasn’t too sure what it all entailed. Sergio started with a consultation at my home, he assessed the property and my expectations/ballpark ideas for pricing, and expectations of how quickly I wanted the property to sell. Based on his consultation, I decided that I wanted the house to sell quickly and sell for the highest price my particular market could support. Sergio pointed out key fixes/upgrades that could be done to the home that would achieve the plan to sell high and quickly. Sergio made getting the fixes done easier by referring me to a couple of contractors who took care of the fixes professionally and at a very reasonable price.
Sergio provided a very nice presentation of the comparables and recent sales in the area that backed up a realistic recommendation for the listing price. Based on the information he provided I felt confident that the suggested listing price would get the home good traction online and get buyers into the home for viewings. As an added plus Sergio had the home professionally photographed so that the home would look at its best online.
Within hours of listing the home, we had several hits and scheduled viewings. By the end of the first week we had several offers and I was able to accept an offer that was over the asking price!
I can’t express enough how Sergio’s work made the entire process feel easy. He was quickly available to answer any questions, he explained everything (paperwork, pricing strategy, current market conditions etc.) in way that was easy to understand, and we had good rapport.
Sergio has in depth knowledge of the the many, many different housing markets in Southern California and he’ll be my go to realtor for my future home buys and sells. His level of knowledge and awesome customer service is top notch and a rarity. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Working with Sergio at Gran Vista Real Estate to purchase our home and selling it couple years later was an exceptional experience! He was extremely reliable and professional. He goes above and beyond for his clients! He definitely gets the job done, we are forever grateful for everything he did for us during the buying and selling processes Thank you, Sergio! We highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs!!
I needed to move closer to work in LA and decided to sell my house. I looked on Yelp for real estate agents in Riverside and noticed that Sergio had a lot of good reviews. So I decided to give him a call. Sergio was extremely accommodating to my needs, explained the whole process to me upfront and always answered any questions right away. He also had trustworthy contacts to help with all aspects of the sell (contractor, painter, etc) which made life a lot easier. We ended up finding a buyer and closing really fast. He turned a stressful task into a fun and enjoyable one! I highly recommend working with Sergio for any house you want to sell or buy!
I contacted Sergio on a recommendation from a friend back in March 2016. We set up a meeting to discuss the rental house I was interested in selling. At the time I had tenants in the house and I was looking at my options. In October 2016 I decided to put the house on the market. during the 6 months I was making a decision Sergio kept me updated with all of the comps and homes that were on the market or had sold in the market. Sergio was thorough in his reports and always kept me up to date. When the tenants moved out Sergio and myself walked the property and we discovered that we had some work to do to get it in shape to show. This is when Sergio really out did himself he was able to find me a reasonably priced painter, carpet installer, tile glazer and a handyman to repair all of the little issues that needed attention since I work a full time job in another city it would very difficult to find people and meet with them during the day. Sergio met with all of these contractors negotiated a fair price and in some instances paid for the repairs when I was out of time just to keep the job completion done on time.
I will say that there wasn’t any time that I was disappointed in the way Sergio handed any part of my sales transaction. The house sold and recorded on January 6th 2017. I would recommend Sergio to anyone that is looking to list a house for sale, he is truly a dedicated and hard working individual. He always showed great integrity and accountability from start to finish.
When you are ready to buy or sell your property Sergio is the the agent you want on your side!
He will guide you through the process with his abundance of knowledge, he took his time and walk through my property and gave me a list to complete so my house would look its best, with his attention to detail my house sold quick and at market value. He is a great at communicating, listening, negotiating and above all he isn’t pushy like other agents.
