Brigitte & Kevin Pratt have helped us buy and sell several homes and our experience has been top-notch every time. They're not just awesome local agents, they're a well-known, respected part of the South Bay's DNA. They seem to know everyone in town and their relationships are key to not only finding the right home but also ensuring smooth transactions that close on time. They work quickly and efficiently and always provide expert guidance. During our most recent home sale, they had our home professionally photographed, on the market and sold within a week which meant we were able to buy our new home in time to welcome our new baby. Beyond being great at their jobs, they're truly kind people who are a pleasure to work with and be around. Our young son still asks when we'll see "Mr. Kevin and Ms. Brigitte" again.
Kevin and Brigitte were wonderful to work with! Their knowledge, expertise and guidance in the home buying process for our first home was unparalleled. Would highly recommend going through the Pratt’s if you are in the market for a new home.
We are so grateful we had the Pratt’s to help us find our new home. They went above and beyond to walk us through the overwhelming process of buying our first family home. We went to countless showings and they gave us honest opinions to help us find the right home, within our budget. I can’t put into words how wonderful they were and how grateful we are - thank you Pratt Beach Properties!!
Kevin and Brigitte Pratt found not only found us our house but our home. They work tirelessly throughout this entire process to find us the perfect spot and even helped us find a lender that we were comfortable with. They were kind enough to answer calls and text messages at any time of the day (and night sometimes) and walked us through all the paperwork such as the inspection reports, loan documents and the other part of the escrow process. Without their help, I don't think we could have ever found this perfect home for our family. We are forever grateful and will never have enough words to thank them.
Brigitte Pratt and Amy Olivares are exceptional real estate agents. First, they are extremely knowledgeable about the market and the nuances of each neighborhood. Second, they always had our best interests in mind, and gave us tremendous advice in assessing properties, making offers, and negotiating. Third, they listened to our selection criteria and continually refined their search to find the properties that best matched it. Fourth, they rose above the call of duty on several occasions, accommodating changes, and helping us with unique requests. Last, they are both consummate professionals, and also really enjoyable to spend time with. We can't recommend them enough!
We have sold and bought a number of homes with Brigitte. Her understanding of the market and the time she has invested understanding our needs (which changed over time) have made her a fantastic partner. Wouldn't do a transaction without Brigitte in the South Bay!
Does a testimonial from a father count? Well anyway, here it is, my son (Kevin) and I were in business together in the commercial RE business for years. He is a problem solver and can analyze and solve complicated RE transactions. I missed him and his talent when he decided to continue his RE career in the city he loves. I am not surprised he has been successful in Manhattan Beach. DAD
Pratt Beach Properties exceeded my expectations. Brigitte and Kevin's level of expertise, professionalism and dedication to their client and the end result is outstanding. As an example, Pratt Beach Properties listed and sold our home on the La Quinta Resort property. With a competing listing next door at a higher listing price Pratt Beach Properties successfully sold and closed our property at a higher cost then our neighbors - that's hard work, dedication, integrity and results. Pratt Beach Properties has since supported us in owner leasing of properties as well as advisors of future property purchases.
We worked with Brigette and Kevin to sell our Sands section home as well as buying our current Hill section place. Everything about our experience was very positive. As this is the 7th home for us over a period of 30 years, we have a good bit of experience with various realtors. Hands down, the quality of service from Kevin and Brigette was significantly better than any we have experienced to date. Both know the MB market extremely well as they have lived in MB, raised their kids and been part of the community for 30 years. As important as knowing the local market, both have another critical realtor attribute —the ability/willingness to listen closely to their client. They only showed us properties that met our very picky criteria, never wasting our time. Similarly they didn’t waste our time with unnecessary open houses, ensuring the events we did have were well attended. To conclude, we really felt that Kevin and Brigette placed our interests and needs first (and frankly second, third...).
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t initially sure if we’d get the same level of care from this amazing team as many of their higher profile clients. After all, we were not purchasing a multi-million dollar home in Manhattan Beach, we were looking for a “starter” home in Redondo Beach. It seemed most agents we met were mostly interested in the “big sale”. We started our search looking for single family homes all over the South Bay. Not being from LA, we really did not know much about the market here. Brigette and Kevin were knowledgeable, kind, quick to respond, patient and honest from start to finish. I never felt like they were after a sale. If we walked through a house they needed work, they pointed it out. No secrets and no pressure. We couldn’t of had a better experience. We highly recommend them.
Kevin and Brigitte are very knowledgable about real estate. We used them to help us rent out an apartment. They guided us through the process and almost immediately we had multiple offers. From there they vetted the various offers and let us know which ones were a good fit and which ones were not. We settled on a renter who has turned out to be the perfect renter for our situation. They brought us the contract and everything was taken care of. The only thing we had to do was decide on which renter to accept. Whether renting or buying, I would highly recommend Kevin and Brigitte Pratt!
We can't thank Kevin and Brigitte enough for making our purchase transaction happen and for taking care of us with outstanding service. They are too kind and we are so glad we could work together again! Sending much gratitude.
Thanks again for your great work on selling our Manhattan Beach Strand property. We are very glad that my brother and his wife suggested using you as our Realtors. Hope to see you in the near future!
Thank you both for doing such a great job selling our family's Manhattan Beach Strand property. It seems like you you found the perfect buyers. Though it is sad that we won't visit the house anymore, we know it will be well cared for.
I would recommend Kevin and Brigitte Pratt to anyone looking to sell their home. People sell their homes for so many reasons. Mine was a particularly difficult decision to make. Kevin and Brigitte were there with me through the whole experience, beginning to end. They helped me understand the steps I needed to take, which had previously seemed foreign and intimidating to me. I slept a little better every night, knowing they were always available to take my call. I have sold my home with Kevin and Brigitte's help, to a family I know will build beautiful memories there and I could not be happier!
