Office Manager


Manhattan Beach local and our wonderful Strand Hill office manager.


Working with Ralph was awesome! I've dealt with realtors in the past and have generally ranked them along side of car salesmen, folks out to basically get a commission and pressure you into a purchase or sale that may not benefit you like you hoped for. Ralph changed all that... he's honest, direct, empathetic, compassionate, intelligent, patient, and just a great person to do business with. If you ever need a realtor and you've been burned in the past, you need to talk with Ralph Ferdinand. We moved to Chicago from LA, but if we were still in the area Ralph would definitely be our guy in the future! Thanks so much for everything Ralph!


Ralph is the consummate professional who will go the extra mile to get an answer, fix a problem, or make a deal happen. His sense of humor is a huge plus in the sometimes stressful process of real estate--he keeps you laughing, no matter what! I highly recommend Ralph to anyone who wants an agent who is like a friend.

Two words. Total Pro. Ralph is the go-to guy if you need a realtor in the Los Angeles area or could use a meaningful, no b.s. referral for a different part of the country. Committed and connected, Ralph has been a great resource. I can't thank him enough.

Danny G

Smooth transaction, was always ready to help anytime. Very good knowledge of the market. Would use again for any future purchase. Can highly recommend for any real estate needs.

I am writing this letter as a personal and professional testimonial to Fred Zuelich.Way back in 1993 my wife and I met Fred when we went to an open house inWestchester, CA.Fred was friendly and relaxed and went out of his way to answer our questionsabout purchasing a home. This was our first time to buy and we wereunderstandably very nervous.Fred talked to us about everything from listings to financing, insurance to escrowand really made us feel more confident in our purchasing decision.Long story short, we bought that very home and still live in it 25 years later.But beyond putting us in our first home, Fred opened our eyes to the possibilitiesthat real estate provides in terms of financial security.Because of his guidance, his contacts and his desire to see us improve our lives, wewent on to make many real estate investments that literally secured our financialfuture.Fred has a heart as big as the Pacific and a pleasant, easy going manner that justmakes all of one’s interactions with him very comfortable.We value Fred’s advice and his friendship and truly appreciate that knowing himhas made a big difference in our lives.Sincerely,Dave and Ronnie Hill.

“Fred Zuelich is a wonderful realtor!I hadn’t bought or sold propertyfor over 30 years, but he gentlyguided me through a successful1031 exchange. He even respectedmy dislike of phone conversationsand cheerfully agreed to textmessaging. He has many yearsof experience in this area and isvery knowledgeable in all areasof real estate transactions. Add afriendly and kind personality andyou have the perfect agent. I highlyrecommend Fred for all your realestate needs.Bryn Stroyke, Stroyke PropertiesDan O’Connor, Strand HillAnita Saitta

After consulting several friends and interviewing many agents, we were thrilled with our choice of Dave Caskey to handle the sale of our beloved Manhattan Beach home. Dave and his team made the process easier than I imagined. He made excellent contractor recommendations for work we wanted to have completed, was available and extremely patient for the many questions we had and was a true professional. Additionally, he made sure potential buyers knew exactly what we loved about our house and made it shine. Finally, we were extremely pleased that he was able to get a good offer in the amount that we were hoping to receive, despite what other agents had predicted our sale price would be, and he made the completion of a long distance sale a snap. Besides all of this-he really is a good guy. I highly recommend Caskey & Caskey for all of your real estate needs!

"I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Barry and Serene. I was raised in the same Manhattan Beach home all my life so it was an emotional experience to consider a move. Although many other top agents had reached out to list my home, I selected Barry and Serene after our first meeting. They were extremely kind and understanding throughout the sales process. They have a deep network of buyers looking for homes in the South Bay and, in just a few weeks, brought me multiple offers to consider. With their guidance and negotiating skills, I accepted one of the offers at an excellent price and with the exact terms needed to purchase my next home. I feel blessed to have found them. If you need a trusted real estate team in the beach cities do yourself a favor and give them a call. I could not recommend a better real estate team to anyone selling or buying a home.

Karynne has represented us in 3 transactions in Hermosa Beach over the years. Our experience with her has been exceptional. In the most recent transaction, she was able to successfully market and quickly sell, at full price, a multi-unit investment property. This building had a lot of deferred maintenance (work needed) but she was able to help us get full market value without having us spend a lot of cash before hand to fix the place up. We know a lot of great people in the real estate business and would give Karynne our absolute highest recommendation.

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...).

Richard W

Karynne has amazing negotiation skills. The property I purchased was complicated and she handled everything with expertise skills. Her knowledge of the area is excellent. I had a great experience and have been buying property for many years. She has a special character that is not easily found.

Lauren G

Allison was brilliant in her service, attention to detail support, and communication. I felt I had a partner in the entire process. Allison will be the first person I call when I need a place in the South Bay. She defines service and what one would expect when looking for a rental or home in the upper end of the market.


I want to take this opportunity to recommend Chris Schmidt and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their house. I have just had the opportunity to work with Chris on both sides of a transaction, first selling my house and during that time, finding our new home. I literally was floored by the professionalism that one person can bring to the table and the savvy tactics that he knows representing the different sides. We found Chris extremely knowledgeable of the local market, not only helping with the best comparisons of the recent sales but also able to point out the values of our house in its location on the street! When we started with Chris, we asked about the general marketing of the house and his plan of action. Believe me, you wouldn’t want anybody else on your team to be representing you at an open house, Chris is sharp and witty and turns every potential buyer into an opportunity. But then I saw the other side of Chris . . . We used him to find our new house and now literally count our blessing that he has been on our sides on both deals. Through his extensive connections and contacts, he was able to get our offer front line and accepted. He brought the most experienced team to the table with Caskey & Caskey and from the home inspectors to the whole process, saved us on items that would have almost certainly would have been overlooked by a regular agent. He and his team are no regulars, they are amazing and we love them! We’d recommend him to anyone!

Asya S

Barry's marketing background, and Serene's masters degree in Negotiation, proved incredibly helpful in getting me the best price and terms when I bought my Manhattan Beach home. They respected my time and really listened to my needs. I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Colin was amazing! We were looking to find a buildable lot in Manhattan Beach, but also considering other options. Colin knows the local market well and was able to bring us lots of options, including off market properties. I was really impressed by his knowledge of the area, properties coming onto the market, and most of all his integrity. He went above and beyond what normal agents would do to make sure we found our perfect property. Colin is also super friendly and awesome to work with, thanks Colin!

Kurt sold our family home of 15 years, located in Palos Verdes Estates and worked with us to purchase our new home in Rolling Hills Estates. Due to Kurt’s accurate pricing recommendation, our home sold immediately and with 3 offers. All offers were over list so that was extremely welcome news. Kurt also held open houses to help advertise and showcase our home. Kurt was also instrumental in helping us assess what we needed to do to our home before we listed it to make it more desirable to buyers. All transactions went smoothly and that made the whole process very easy to manage. Kurt was very knowledgeable about activity in our area as well as many others. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Will and Rachel will not only help you find a house, they are truly committed to find you a Home for your family! Honesty, professionalism and determination are a few of their traits, by following their advise we avoided making a wrong decision.

Kris has handled 5 transactions for us since 1999. We have used various other agents before and during this time and none have provided the service that Kris Terrill has. She handled the whole gamut of situations from securing a house on a multiple bid situation to selling a home as a pocket listing. Given the roller coaster ride of the real estate market over the last 15 years, Kris has plenty of expertise on how to secure or sell the property at the time. Communication is key in any business transaction and Kris certainly does that well. We wanted a professional yet caring, knowledgeable yet not over-bearing agent and we found it with Kris. We recommend Kris to anyone buying or selling luxury real estate in the Southbay area as she is well connected and knows her market.

We are glad our daughter referred us to Judy. She said that Judy getting them their Manhattan Beach Tree Section home was nothing short of a miracle. Our daughter, son-in-law and our three grandchildren continue to enjoy their home to this day. Our Buyer/Broker relationship with Judy has been a real pleasure. She actually makes buying real estate stress free and fun! She is the consummate professional. She listens, she absorbs and she acts! No pressure ... just good sound advice. If it were not for her tremendous market knowledge, herr negotiating skills, and her dogged determination we would not be the proud owners today of two Hermosa Beach Sand Section properties ... and looking forward to purchasing a third! We appreciate Judy's efforts on our behalf and the successful results.


Chris is the best! He kept us calm during the nerve-racking process of finding and buying our first house. All through escrow he explained each step. He personally went out of his way on more than one occasion to make sure our escrow closed. Even after moving in to our new house, he called to follow-up and remind us about a few things we needed to do. As I said, he is the best!

When the time came to sell my Strand home of 25 years, I interviewed four of the South Bay’s local top producers. I chose Shawn Dugan to list the property because I felt he understood my home and its ideal target buyer. He presented a top tier marketing plan, was forthright with his analysis of the property and he had the important quality of being trustworthy. I felt confident he was the one for the job. Once listed, I was immediately impressed with his marketing materials and presentation of the house to prospective buyers. Throughout the process, Shawn was there for every phone call, question and concern that I had. He worked with integrity and always looked out for our best interest. He was with us every step of the way. The end result speaks for itself: a great price on the sale and less than half the average time on the market. I highly recommend Shawn to anyone who is thinking of selling their home. He really goes the extra mile.

Bruce T

We LOVE Juliet, she’s the best agent we’ve ever had and we’ve rented 7 places over the last 7 years so we’ve worked with plenty of agents to know she stands out: 1) she really understood what we were looking for and only sent us homes that fit our unique criteria. Unlike other agents that set up automated alerts and sent everything that became available, Juliet sent us a curated list of only the ones we’d be interested in and provided notes on what each one nailed from our list and what each was lacking 2) she’s proactive, offered her help to us when we reached out about Airbnb’s, she always goes above and beyond the duty of an agent 3) by the time we found our dream place, we felt educated on the market by Juliet, confident in what to offer in price, knowing how to weigh the pros and cons in the decision, 4) she has the best personality you’d want in anyone you work with whether a service provider, colleague or friend: she’s kind, clear, funny, caring, smart, capable, responsive, thoughtful, hard working, someone we hope to always work with to find our future homes.

Victoria S

Jim HERMAN was great to us! Patient along the way of our search. He found exactly what we needed in the end

Hayley P

I worked with Chris to sell my house in Torrance after meeting with a different realty company. Talk about night and day. Chris and his team descended upon my house within 1 day of our meeting. They took notes, looked closely at every detail in my home and let me know exactly what the process was and what it would take to sell my home for the price point I demanded. It really was amazing. Yes, people say a house in LA can sell itself in this market but what they don't tell you is that you may be leaving a lot of money on the table. With Caskey&Caskey I got offers above asking before the open house! I rarely write reviews about anything other than food but man, these people are fantastic at what they do. Honest and just all around great to work with! The start to finish process of selling a home was seamless, there were no hiccups that I had to deal with - Chris was behind the scenes getting it all handled!

I am writing this letter to provide my wholehearted recommendation for Kris Terrill. I have had the pleasure of working with Kris on both the purchase and sale of a home. I learned early on that Kris was more than a realtor; finding that she is a partner in helping our family navigate our real estate decisions. We were new to the Redondo Beach area and was fairly intimidated by the real estate market given our relocation from the Midwest. Kris was highly recommended to us by a couple of close friends who have worked with Kris repeatedly for their own needs. I wanted someone that I could trust to guide our family through the process with integrity and care. Given our newness to the area Kris quickly became a trusted advisor who helped us not only find the right home, negotiate a great price, but also helped us also navigate other components of moving into a new community. Her involvement with our move didn't end at closing. She would regularly check in on us from time to time to ensure that we had what we needed. We eventually needed to sell our home and move back to the Midwest for family reasons. Kris treated us with compassion and care going the extra mile making sure that our home was ready to go onto the market. We were so well prepared that Kris was able to sell our home 2 days before the official listing hit the MLS. This was such a relief for us and I know that it wouldn't have been possible without Kris. Ultimately I recommend Kris as a trusted advisor to assist with anyone's real estate related needs. She takes the time to understand her clients needs and is extremely efficient with your time. Kris is also extremely knowledgeable with the market and is adept at finding precisely the right home for you. She is the best realtor I have ever worked with and will definitely work with her again in the future.

We have used Cindy for two transactions. On the first transaction, Cindy was fabulous! . We had an unusual closing and she helped get it done even though we were 12,000 miles away. When it came time to sell that house, Cindy found us our dream house. She listened, knew what we wanted, and didn’t waste our time showing us houses we didn’t want. She helped us get out of a bad escrow we had also been in and was instrumental in helping us close the purchase and sale of our old house on the same day. She and her associate Bill Mar were great. If I ever buy another piece of property, Cindy will be my go to broker.


We could have written a lot of praises about Cindy - and it would have been a ``BEST SELLER!`` Cindy is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! Cindy cares about her clients tremendously and it shows every step of the way. She was outstanding in both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home (which sold in 1 weekend). The timing was impeccable and Cindy made it happen. Her knowledge, professionalism and attention to details are superb and she helps you through the process with ease. Cindy is always there for you no matter what questions or concerns you may have, even after the transactions are complete. Her engaging personality is an asset and made it a very enjoyable experience. We feel extremely fortunate to have crossed paths with Cindy and will recommend her to everyone we know. Thank you Cindy for everything!

After a futile search for a home over several years, we began working with Amy Olivares - a neighbor and friend who is well respected and connected in the Manhattan Beach community. Amy was quickly able to get a sense of what we were looking for in a home and showed us several great properties until we finally found THE ONE. Amy got the deal done, was there every step of the way, making it an easy and pleasant experience. We are nearing completion of our build and couldn't have done It without her. And she also then helped us sell our current home.

Peir S

Ralph is a wonderful agent and a great person!!! He represented us to sell our home in 2016. He was always available whenever we had questions or concerns about the process. He did a great job educating us about the selling process and he was extremely patient in answering all our questions. He is knowledgeable about the housing market and the buying/selling process. We highly recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell a property.


Unbelievable service from the start. All of my questions were answered and I was comfortable through the whole process. Buying and selling a home can be really stressful, but Ed and his team made it seamless and really put our mind to rest. We were able to sell our house in Manhattan Beach and buy another house with their help. I'd use them, again for sure and if you have any Real Estate needs Kaminsky Real Estate Group is the company to use. There are a LOT of good agents in the South Bay, but Eds experience and expertise doesn't compare to most. Thanks for such a great experience!

Pete G

My husband and I were interested in moving our family to Manhattan Beach about 4 years ago but did not have an agent. We tried going to open houses on our own and calling off of "For Sale" signs. We happened upon a listing that was one of Dan O'Connor's and after meeting with him a few times, we decided to have him be our agent. BEST DECISION EVER! He showed us several homes but the one that stood out was a home in a GREAT location but needed an addition and remodel. Had it not been for Dan, we never would've considered this an option but after 8 months adding square footage and remodeling other areas, we ended up in a home that was PERFECT for our family in a location we are SO happy with. Dan certainly helped guide us along the process and helped us imagine what our house could be with a little work. We are so grateful for Dan's expertise, professionalism and hard work. We would recommend him a million times over!!


Colin helped me with a very challenging sale transaction and went way above and beyond to get it done. He was extremely helpful in negotiating a deal with the buyer and remained flexible and creative to get the transaction closed. He is very knowledgeable on the local area (South Bay) and was able to bring a buyer to the table through his personal relationships. I would highly recommend Colin!!!

Nathan C

Mr. Allen always has answers for us...excellent referrals and recommendations. He is a hard worker and we appreciate all he does for us. He goes above and beyond and we are grateful!

Nikki H

First and foremost Karina leads the process with her tremendously positive attitude. We went through some very challenging times with our financing and she was always optimistic and supportive to help us deal with our anxieties and that was very helpful. We also demanded a lot related to needed work on the house and i know that our asks must have been frustrating for her but she always responded immediately and in the end pushed everything through for us. Karina has a very deep passion for real estate and more importantly, for the South Bay. Additionally she has a tremendous network of relationships and resources that are an added plus!


Peggy and her son Peter (in business together) were terrific in buying our new house and selling our old house. We got to know Peggy and Peter while looking for a house to meet our (very specific) desires. Peter saw a new house for sale near the area we were looking and said, “this would be perfect for them”. He was right. Peggy arranged for us to see the house, and we fell in love with it. Buying a house these days is not simple. The number of legal documents to be reviewed (especially for a new house in a Home Owners’ Association) is daunting as is the entire process: the negotiations with the seller, disclosures, the escrow process, and multiple types of inspections, moving, maintenance, etc. Peggy is incredibly knowledgeable; she guided (hand-held is more accurate) us through the process right through the final settlement. Peggy had great recommendations for movers, housekeepers, inspectors, etc. which were all very valuable. Peter was there whenever we needed help in meeting people (inspectors and installers) at the house and also knows the business well; he also has great taste in houses. They are both terrific and work very well together as a team. When it came time to sell our old house immediately after moving into our new house, Peggy and Peter were there for us. They managed the entire process, from timing and price determination, to cleaning and painting the house, “staging” the house for sale to get a better price, conducting open houses (of which there were only two since the house sold very quickly – Peter and Peggy priced the house very accurately), to receiving the offers (primary and backup), negotiating the sale price and conditions, going through and closing escrow, and, again, reviewing and signing all the legal documents. They are both very knowledgeable, about the process as well as the real estate market in our buying and selling locations. Again, they were terrific. The bottom line is that we could not have done the whole thing without Peggy and Peter. We highly recommend them, individually and as a team, for selling and buying a home. We love our new home. Thank you, Peggy and Peter!

Don B

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

Ed P

Brook is a a wonderful realtor. Honest, caring, dedicated. I could not have asked for a more supportive or effective person to be on my side during this exciting and stressful process. I would and have recommended him to all of my closest friends. I have received nothing but positive feedback. Would recommend earnestly without reservation.

Dr. S

Colin did a phenomenal job for me as a first time buyer in the South Bay Area. His expertise, guidance and counsel was invaluable throughout the transaction, including navigating a complicated sales process. He only had my best interests in mind throughout, raising issues as he saw them, even if it meant I might walk away from the transaction. I didn't know Colin beforehand but he was referred to me and I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone looking for a well-credentialed, honest, and experienced realtor.

Donal L

I found Lynne Lear on Zillow. From our first phone conversation to closing on our investment home, Lynne provided excellent service. She has great insight on the area and each neighborhood. She was highly responsive and was always one step ahead in the process. I highly recommend Lynne Lear.


Audrey is truly the best agent we've ever worked with! Excellent service and professionalism through the whole process. She was an extra set of eyes at every home we viewed. The process took almost 7 months and she never put any pressure on us at any time. She brought to my attention issues that  experienced home buyers would miss. She thoroughly reviewed all documentation on our behalf to make sure we were properly covered. She managed all the inspections and follow-up repairs, saving us many hours of our own time. She provided a list of her personal referrals for every situation you can imagine. Every one we used was excellent. She truly is a full service agent that will place you as her priority. She never let us down. We would highly recommend her to our friends!


Linda Hernandez was my buying agent and I cannot express how much gratitude and high regard I have for the Klapper Group. From helping me find the perfect place, to getting our offer and FBO successfully accepted, to walking me through the countless hurdles and obstacles of the escrow process, I have Linda, Abby Berstein, and Aaron Klapper to thank for helping me get my first home! I not only highly recommend Klapper Group, but encourage anyone reading this to trust me when I say that having a good agent on your side when buying or selling your home is one of the best decisions you can make. Thank you Klapper Group!

Jacko A

Working with Kurt Allen and his team was an incredible experience from start to finish. I have never known a more hardworking broker in my life. The house was sold as part of an estate, so there were additional challenges to the sale. Kurt handled every challenge with total professionalism and kept the family updated all along with way! I have shared our experiences with Kurt and his team with friends and family and people are seriously in shock when they hear all of the "extra mile" responsibilities Kurt took on to assure the sale of our family home went seamlessly. I will never be able to thank him enough!

Kathy B

Will and Rachel work together seamlessly, are very responsive to questions and comments, extremely pleasant and professional in their manner, and understand the process and strategies for effective marketing and sales of residential property.

Steve W

Bryn Britton was the most amazing realtor I have ever dealt with! Her tenancity and knowledge is unmatched. She made selling my home a smooth experience! When I buy or sell again, Bryn Britton will be my realtor!

Shawnte C

Christa Lyons represented me when I sold my home in 2014. There was no doubt that my home would sell quickly as it was in a very desirable area, however as with many homes mine was due for some updating. Christa knew just what to do to that would realize the greatest return and she was spot on!

Lynn S

We found at Caskey and Caskey you get not just your agent, but a team of people who are smart, resourceful and very experienced. Every person we encountered seemed to bend over backwards to help us make a success of our home sale. We were treated like VIPs selling our tall and skinny in Redondo Beach even though they also represent multimillion dollar homes on The Strand as well. They were always supportive and patient with any concerns we had and were always so fast to respond. The team assessed our house made suggestions to improve it for sale to get the best possible price and designed a customized marketing plan. We followed their advice. Deanna Whipp the director of operations there, is a force. She went above and beyond to make our house ready for market. Following the teams advice was so worth it! The price we received was so far beyond our expectations we were in disbelief! I would definitely recommend Dave and his team to first timer buyers/sellers as well as seasoned vets of real estate transactions. You will be delighted how you are treated as well as your results!

Jennifer W

We were very impressed from the beginning through the end of the whole process. My wife and I decided to put our home on the market to sell. As soon as we made contact with Lily everything rolled in so professional and so smooth that we sold our home within 45 days.We were so impressed with her and staff that we couldn't believe how smooth everything was done with no hick ups or problems. She even sold our home above our asking price. Her staff and her did excellent. Thanks Lily.


We worked with Aaron and his team, Linda, Abby, and Marc, to simultaneously sell our house and buy our new house. There were a lot of moving parts in both transactions and Aaron did a fantastic job of guiding us through them. He made what should be a stressful situation very smooth. His marketing and negotiating skills are second to none and we were extremely happy where the economics of both transactions ended up. Very highly recommended whether buying or selling.

Taylor A

Chris Plank has been our broker on our last two houses in Manhattan Beach working both to sell our house and find us a new home. In my opinion, Chris is without peer as a real estate broker in the South Bay. Chris is a tireless worker, completely trustworthy, has an engaging personality with a mantra to always put his client’s need first and foremost. In our case, Chris’ energy and efforts resulted in us securing the home we desired in the area we most coveted. Also, once the transaction process began, Chris made things as easy and simple as possible on us; therefore causing minimal stress and burden during the escrow and closing period. We have referred Chris to both family and friends and each one has experienced the same outstanding results as we have.

Taylor B

Barry and Serene are an amazing team! They bring a wealth of experience to the table, not just real estate experience and thorough knowledge of the area but also Barry’s marketing background and Serene’s masterful negotiation skills (seriously: she has a Master’s degree in Negotiations!). All their experience along with their clear, reliable communications translate into a feeling of calm, trust, and confidence through what can be an incredibly stressful time. Highly recommended! Wonderful people and fantastic real estate agents.


Working with Chris Schmidt and his team was the smoothest Real Estate transaction I have ever been in. Having had a friend that previously worked with Chris, I took the opportunity to meet with him and discuss my needs. It became immediately clear that I would trust him to sell our house. We had a unique situation with our house and we felt our property had a special value based on the zoning and location of the house. Chris completely agreed with us and took the opportunity and ran with it. The marketing of the house spoke to it’s unique circumstances and the offers that came in on our house were countered with the developed explanation of the true value of the house. Although we received immediate offers, Chris advised us that he felt that we could hold out for the interested parties to raise their bids. This was truly a huge breath of fresh air in this industry! He was working on our original plan and wanted us to realize the value we initially spoke about versus making the quicker deal. The strategy worked and one of the original bidders came up to our level! I can’t thank Chris enough for this experience and want to suggest to anyone else to use him to help close your deal.

Jim G

Chris Schmidt is Great! We were new to the area when Chris found our new home-we had numerous problems with our loan broker, he found the person who made our loan happen. He provided us with all the tradesmen to renovate, all very good people. After the sale, he is so service oriented for every thing someone new to the area would need. When we decided to go for a bigger house, we of course called him. After, the sale, which he made happen with great advice to make the deal work against competing bids-he helped me find great qualified renters for my front unit. You get wise guidance about what to buy or how to sell, how to make the deal, and who to use for moving, repairs and renovations. I couldn't be happier with Chris.

Jeff S

Will and Rachel make a great team with their personal and professional skills. Will initially communicated the issues and complexity of selling a home in Manhattan Beach very clearly, which resulted in our confidence in the entire process. Together, they were amazingly responsive and thoughtful about our needs and constraints. They demonstrated thoroughness, good analyses and good judgement in guiding us. Their sustained effort yielded a very good price for the property while avoiding complications that can arise with buyers and other parties. Our experience with Will and Rachel was excellent, and I would recommend that a prospective seller take the time to talk to them before selecting an agent.


Lily was absolutely terrific! We interviewed several of the top realtors in Palos Verdes and we felt based on her presentation that she would be the best choice for us. Lily is very knowledgeable, great with other agents, terrific on follow-up and follow-through (two of the most important attributes for agents but yet today is hard to find) and was able to secure a buyer for us in less than one week at greater than asking price. Oh, did I tell you that we set the asking price? Lily asked us what we would like to receive for the house as it had been on the market for over 6 months with other Palos Verdes (long-time) agents who were unable to perform. Lily was very positive, even though the house had been on the market and she truly felt from the beginning that we had a great house and that it needed better exposure. Lily took pictures the second day of the listing and everything was very professionally done and the pictures looked great. You can compare the before (other agents) to Lily's pictures and there is no comparison on the difference. Professionalism sells. Lily was able to generate, through her network of outside broker contacts and her knowledge of the market, 4 above asking price offers in less than one week and she was able to achieve what is the highest price per SF set for this area of Palos Verdes. Hire Lily. You will be pleasantly surprised. She is in a class by herself!


We originally met Colin at an open house we attended while just casually looking for a new home. We were in no particular rush to buy, but met with Colin to lay out our wish list for our next house. He was very patient and helpful, sending us listings he thought we might be interested in without being pushy. After several months, we ultimately we found a house we really liked that ended up being a fairly tough negotiation to say the least. I am entirely convinced that Colin's persistence on our behalf during the whole process is why we got the house, for what we feel is a good and fair price. Colin is extremely responsive (be it day, night, or on the weekend), enthusiastic, and a pleasure to work with! Can't wait to move into our new home!

During one of our Southern California housing booms, I wanted to move from old Torrance to the beach. All realtors told me I needed to sell my home first, which I was not willing to do. Then I called Cindy because she had a listing that I was interested in for purchase. She convinced the seller to accept my contingency, sold my home (within a week), secured a 40-year mortgage for us, got homeowners insurance for us within 24 hours of closing ( which we overlooked) and made our transition satisfying. Since our purchase, 25+ years ago, Cindy has remembered us with gifts at Christmas, subscription to her monthly magazine, and answered any questions for me and/or any friends. This year she provided me with comps so that I was able to establish a new base for my property. I have never recommended any other Real Estate Professional. My family has been instructed to only list with Cindy, if there is an unforseen reason to sell.

When I started my search for a home, I visited many open houses. Every realtor I met follows a similar script - they all give you their business card and then they all subscribe you to the same MLS mailing list system. I ended up working with Brook because from the very first day, he listened carefully to what I was looking for. He followed up with me, and continued to refine the searches to get me some awesome properties to look at. I found Brook to be trustworthy and easy to work with. He was able to leverage his vast network to help me navigate some unforeseen obstacles and land me in the perfect home. Thank you Brook!

Chris Plank came highly referred to us by several friends who had used him on multiple transactions. One friend in particular is in high end commercial real estate. He kept saying how he wished all of his commercial deals could go as smooth as his deals with Chris went. We had lived in our starter home in Hollyglen for nearly 2 years and were looking to upgrade. Wanting to do our comparison shopping, we set up a few meetings with other agents. They came in with graphs and pie charts and concepts. Chris Plank came in with a well thought out marketing plan. He got the listing. We started looking for our new home in Manhattan Beach and quickly became overwhelmed at the cost and lack of inventory. Chris was calm and patient. He was sitting back and listening to us, taking mental notes of what my wife and I liked and disliked about each of the properties he took us to see. I was thoroughly impressed with Chris Planks knowledge of the SouthBay. He would gently guide us away from the overpriced homes (but had us look at them in case they dropped the price) or ones that had obvious problems, but we didn’t see because we were getting anxious. I could tell that Chris was not in this for the quick commission, he was actually guiding us toward our dream home. We had been through an open house of a home that was a fixer, but had good bones. Chris knew of the home and we both agreed that it was priced a little high. He said he would keep an eye on it. Three weeks later we get a call that the property been reduced, Chris set up a spur of the moment showing and that night he had our offer in the hands of the listing agent, before the reduction had chance to filter to the rest of the agents in town. The price we offered was even lower than the asking price, but Chris knew we had a good chance to lock this one up. The negotiation lasted one nail biting day, but Chris played our hand masterfully. The owners accepted our offer and Chris Plank was the calming voice through it all. Going into Escrow with no contingencies, made selling our Hollyglen home now a number one priority. We decided on a listing price, based on the neighborhood comps Chris had pulled and also a price that we all felt would move our home quickly, but give us enough cushion to do the upgrades to our newly purchased home. Chris, again allayed our anxiety. He guided us step by step through his marketing plan, complete with picking the best weekend to have the Open House. We listed on a Tuesday, the ad was to hit the Beach Reporter Thursday. By Wednesday Chris had already created a buzz, and he was scheduling showings. By the end of Friday, Chris was fielding multiple offers, and by Saturday morning we had sold our home for, at that time, the highest price ever for a single story home in Hollyglen! Six months after moving into our new home and doing a remodel, we are living in our dream home, thanks to Chris Plank. Better yet, our house has recently appraised for over 30% more than we paid. We still have neighbors and Real Estate agents coming up to us and are amazed at how we “pulled this deal off”. I smile and hand them Chris Plank’s card.

Michael S

Christa Lyons is, by far, the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She's an expert in her market – extremely knowledgeable, always reachable and responsive, and consistently goes the extra mile to provide full service to her clients. We could not have asked for a better home-buying experience. We will definitely work with her again.


We have had the pleasure of working with Kurt for over 10 years, and have known him for over 15 years. Kurt has help us with several successful transactions, including a home sale, a home buy, and assisting with finding renters for two of our properties. Throughout each process, Kurt's professionalism and attention to detail has resulted in a smooth and successful outcome. Kurt's experience is invaluable--he understands the nuances of the market, and knows what needs to get done to satisfy both parties. Of course, when the situation is not right for the client, he will not hesitate to voice his view. We have had several instances of this, and have been grateful for his advice. We look forward to working with Kurt in the future.

Kevin A

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.

Sheri T

I had been approached by many realtors, but none were as professional as Dave and his team. Dave got it to the handful of buyers that might be interested and generated multiple offers. Ultimately, my property went for 30.5% over asking price. Through the escrow process, he was diligent in following up and working with my tenants and myself. He made the process as painless as possible. I would use Caskey & Caskey for any Beach City sales. He knows the area through and through.

Shirin K

Wonderful experience! We adored working with Chris Corr. He made the process so easy and we were able to find our first home within months. We couldn't be happier!

Megan R

Dan represented me on purchasing a home in Hermosa Beach. He had an incredible pulse on the market and once I was under contract to purchase the house, he was very adept at solving any issues that arose during the transaction process. He was very responsive at all times. I was very impressed and plan on working again with Dan.

Joe M

Piper helped us purchase our first home! She was super accommodating and walked us through each step. After visiting several promising listings, we landed on a house that we just had to have. Unfortunately, as we got further into the process we began to run into some roadblocks with the seller and loan provider. Piper was great about guiding us through it all. Using her vast experience and connections within the industry, she made what could have been a rough situation much smoother. We’re very happy with our home and are planing to stay for a long time. But if we ever decide to move, Piper will be our first call!

Dennis K

Serene and Barry, We never could have gotten our first home without you! Thank you so much for your guidance, patience and words of wisdom. I think Joe is finally out of questions to ask! Thank you so much for your gracious gift. We'll see you at the engagement party and wedding. We will have a summer BBQ in our new home and you will be our guest of honor. Thank you so much for helping to make our dreams reality!!


Ralph did a perfect job with a caring heart and established knowledge when I sold my house. He listened very carefully about my request and respected my wishes while he was very protective for me to have the maximum profit I could have. He has beautiful senses about how we can sell the house the fastest way so he teamed up with a house decorator to emphasize all the best parts of my house. I have so much respect and trust that Ralph E Ferdinand is the best realtor. What a great thing to work with someone who we could really trust for this difficult process.

Yumi T

My husband and I chose Lily Liang because she is the top broker in Palos Verdes. Lily is extremely knowledgeable about the Palos Verdes area and she is a sharp negotiator. Lily treated us with respect and helped us consider each offer we received. She is a hard worker who returns phone calls and emails quickly. Lily was always concerned for our family's personal well being throughout the selling process. Lily has a well earned reputation for being a top broker in Southern California. If you are searching for an exemplary real estate broker, I highly recommend Lily Liang!


Chris was amazing! We looked at many, MANY homes before we finally found the one we loved, and in this super competitive market, he was able to close the deal on our dream home. Chris was with us every step of the way. Super responsive and helpful when we had questions… And even came over with his toolbox to help us move in! He has become more than our realtor, he’s become a friend!

Mark B

We worked with Aaron and his team, Linda, Abby, and Marc, to simultaneously sell our house and buy our new house. There were a lot of moving parts in both transactions and Aaron did a fantastic job of guiding us through them. He made what should be a stressful situation very smooth. His marketing and negotiating skills are second to none and we were extremely happy where the economics of both transactions ended up. Very highly recommended whether buying or selling.

Taylor A

Cindy is a true professional, with extensive knowledge in every aspect of the real estate process. If you are selling, she has great vision of how your property will present itself best, and will move mountains to achieve that. If you are buying, she will work tirelessly to find you the best property, often delivering more that you would have dreamed possible, at a price better than you dared hope expect - she is an excellent negotiator. I have both purchased and sold property with Cindy's help several times over the past 15 years (including income properties and spec homes), and remain a very happy client. You could not be in better hands than Cindy's!

Anthony Y

Kurt is a true professional and would recommend him to family and friends due to his deep knowledge in real estate transactions, attention to detail, being responsive, and the feeling you get that he has your best interest in mind at all times. Kurt represented us when we purchased some units in Long Beach and could not be happier with the outcome. We have complete confidence in Kurt and will work with him again.

Scott B

Hi Serene and Barry, How grateful I am! Thanks for all your help in finding qualified buyers for my home and making the process so easy. If it wasn't for your expertise I'm sure it would never have happened. Thanks again for the gardening goodies. I planted the flowers and right now everything's starting to bloom. I will continue gardening in my awesome backyard. Take care.


I sold and bought a house in the South Bay in December 2015 with Caskey and Caskey. What a fantastic agency! Great agents and teamwork- their expertise as one of the top agencies clearly shows - I got my home sold within one week on the market and it allowed me to purchase my dream house. The whole Caskey team was always accessible and responsive to me at any time . I highly recommend Caskey and Caskey. I will absolutely use them again!

Erin S

We used the Klapper group to sell our old house and purchase our new house and were extremely impressed with the entire team. Both Aaron and Linda were a pleasure to work with and made sure that everything from beginning to end went smoothly. We would be happy to use them again for any real estate needs.

Ryan G

We have worked with Dan on commercial and residential transactions over the last five years. He is the most honest, forthright and competent agent we have ever dealt with. In one case he sold our home in a community he had not worked in within a few weeks, and he has proven able to negotiate complicated real estate exchanges and contingency purchases. We recommend him wholeheartedly and believe that he is responsible for making such stressful transactions easier and smoother. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with him.

Leslie W

It was such a pleasure to work with Brook on finding us our home in the location we wanted to live in. His knowledge for the area was outstanding and very informative. He truly looks out for his clients and is very professional and personable. He doesn’t treat his clients like a client; he treats them like a friend and has their best interest at hand. His selfless, positive, calm and friendly demeanor make him a wonderful person to work with going through the process of buying a home. My husband and I would highly recommend him for buying or selling a home.

Angel T

Beyond your friendship, kindness and generosity, you are also a consummate professional. We have brought and sold five homes, each time working with a different realtor, and you stand alone in terms of customer service, network, dedication and determination. You made clear to us that you would be there at every step of the way and you were, in a meaningful way.

Sadie T

Juliet was incredible from start to finish. She worked tirelessly for our family to find the perfect house that fitted with all our needs and held our hand throughout the entire process. Thank you for all your help making our transition to LA go so smoothly. We are very happy with our new home. Ed

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!

Rob D

Tina was great to work with as a buyers agent. I can't say I worked with her for long--within one week of beginning the search we were in escrow. She was super responsive and tenacious--from early morning texts, to late night calls, and weekend negotiations. In a very competitive sellers market, she helped me stand out as a buyer. She has a great and friendly team that helps keep the transaction moving along.


Dave has represented me on several properties since 2002, including investment properties and the purchase and sale of our primary residences. He is always well connected and in tune with what is happening in South Bay real estate. He provides a great perspective on the nuances from house to house and neighborhood to neighborhood. He also has been very helpful with all of the major and minor items that might come up when closing, whether it is move related or home maintenance. I highly recommend the Caskey & Caskey team if you are buying in the Beach cities.

David M

We highly recommend Amy Hackman as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We were comfortable in our home but realized that we wanted a larger home to accommodate our growing family. Additionally, we wanted to work with someone who was enthusiastic, hard working and super friendly. Amy Hackman was exactly what we were looking for. When we initially met with Amy, we provided her with our budget limitations and the specifications of what we wanted in our new home. One of the qualifications was a house with an elevator. She is well connected in the community where we wanted to live and found us several houses that were possibilities. She didn’t waste our time in showing us homes that did not meet the specifications that were discussed at our initial meeting. Since inventory was limited, Amy jumped on a house that fit exactly what we were looking for. She was very patient and showed us the house several times, to make sure we were very comfortable in making an offer. During the negotiation process, Amy was very savvy and diligent. The sellers were a little difficult, but Amy with her professional prowess was able to execute a deal where both sides were happy. Amy is a highly attentive real estate agent. She treats you as if you are her only client, which of course is not the case. Amy returns all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. We highly recommend Amy Hackman to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business and if we ever need to move again, she will be our first choice in real estate agents.


Karynne has the perfect style; no pressure to buy or sell and very patient. She is NOT looking for a quick deal, unless the client wants it. She truly wants to work with her client (like me!) to find the best fit for that family or person. We physically went to 23 houses… and reviewed many more in person and over the phone. She just works the South Bay beach area, so her local knowledge is excellent. She has many connections, we looked at places that were not yet listed. She even recommended not to look at properties that she thought were in poor locations and not a fit for me (near a high school, busy streets).She has plenty of experience, I could not stump her with all my detailed questions, and she knows the processes in-and-out. We ended up putting 4 offers and Karynne helped me decide what price to start negotiating. Once we found the perfect place for me, we started with a conservative price because we wanted to make sure I got the property! I still talk to her in getting references for work around the house and what the market is currently doing. I am absolutely pleased with Karynne Thim and know you will be, too.

Barry F

Bryn was fantastic! she is very knowledgeable, responsive and professional. She was very patient with us as first time buyers and guided us through the process step by step. I will definitely use her again and I would recommended her to anyone looking for an agent!

Buying our first home was no small undertaking, and working with Bryn Britton from the start was the best decision we made. Bryn is extremely knowledgeable about all the neighborhoods we were interested in, and she helped educate us on all the ins and outs and nuances of purchasing a home. She was always available to talk with us, answer questions, visit homes, and make us laugh when things felt overwhelming! Her positive outlook, patience, and vast knowledge of the housing market here helped us keep our focus and find the home of our dreams. We are incredibly happy to have worked with Bryn, and we are incredibly happy in our new home!

Kate L

Darrin was great to work with. I strongly recommend him.

Nathan P

The Klapper Group did a great job helping us sell our house! They went above and beyond helping us with a complicated transaction and issues with our inspection. Aaron, Linda and Abby are genuinely nice people to work with and a pleasure to get to know. I recommend them highly.

My husband and I were on the hunt for our first home together as a family and were desperately trying to find the perfect place to raise our newborn son. We were originally working with another realtor but when things weren’t quite working out we were referred to Fred by my uncle who has worked with him over the past years. Even though our price range wasn’t what he was used to, Fred assured us the price did not matter and he was going to take care of us to help find the right home. As first-time buyers we had a lot to learn with the home buying process, especially in the ultra-competitive L.A. market. Fred guided us through every step along the way. Many obstacles surfaced, but nothing stopped Fred,he was determined to help us get our dream home. We ended up finding the perfect home in El Segundo where we enjoy walks down Main St. and bike rides to the beach. My family and I can’t thank Fred enough for all his hard work and are looking forward to our next home purchase as our family continues to expand. Not only have we found a great realtor but we have gained a longtime friend in this journey as well!The O’Book Family (Chris, Alyssa & Carson)

From start to finish working with Piper was an amazing and wonderful experience! She listened carefully to my criteria and then kicked off a search that eventually yielded me my new home. There was not one situation where she showed me a home that didn't fit what we had discussed. When I  presented listings she provided me her immediate feedback or she would research and get back to me. Going above and beyond she even drove by some of the listings to check out the neighborhood when she was unfamiliar (very rare). She was so responsive to emails, texts and phone calls. She always made me feel like I was her #1 priority, even though I knew she must have other clients I never felt lack of attention. For matters that were outside her expertise (e.g. inspection items) she did the legwork to find me good contacts who could either answer my questions or provide estimates for the work that was needed. Truly made my home buying experience a special one. Her being at my house warming was the best present I could have had, because she was so much a part of my buying that house.

We met Peter at an open house that we decided to just walk into. From the first time we met him, my whole family LOVED him! He was really relaxed, helpful and not pushy at all. My husband and I had been thinking of moving to Manhattan Beach for 2 years for work but did not know the neighborhood at all. We had a few brokers who were sending us the MLS listings according to the specifications we put out, but now I know that never tells the whole story and is very impersonal. When we met Peter he talked to me for a few minutes about what kind of house I was looking for and what was important to me and my family. He asked if he could email me and I figured yeah another set of MLS listing....but no this was different. He was REALLY listening to me! Instead of the MLS listings he would send these detailed emails about houses he thought I would like with explanations of the plus and minus of the house according to what was important to me. Kind of like the cliff notes to the book and he was right on every time! He was AMAZING! Within maybe 2 weeks he found us a pocket listing that was PERFECT for me and my family and we moved! I couldn't believe it. 2 years of procrastinating and in 3 weeks of meeting Peter we were in the PERFECT house. Soooooo happy! Thank you Peter! You're a gem!

Amar S

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Hermosa Beach, California. As a first time buyer, Fred was able to smoothly guide us through the home buying process. Local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills! His professionalism and his knowledge of the area put us at ease and we have been happy home buyers since!

Dr. L

Kurt has handled several buys and sells for us in the South Bay. Every transaction has gone smoothly and was professionally handled. He is highly recommended by us for any real estate needs.

Melissa A

Thinking of Judy as a Realtor would be like calling the Sistine Chapel just another church. Judy serves her clients in so many ways, whether you are buying, selling, building, exploring, or just want to discuss the current market. Judy listens and truly understands her client's specific needs, hopes, concerns and even quirks. We have been fortunate to have Judy assist our family in buying and selling our first home to buying and building our current M.B. home. She as provided us with amazing advice every step of the way. Judy truly embodies the real estate advisor role.She exhibits patience when her clients but is a relentless advocate to get a deal done when her clients are ready. Judy represents the best of her profession. She is smart, insightful, kind, thoughtful, patient, and has a sense of humor in times of stress. We could not recommend her any higher or with less adjectives!


Lily was incredible! Without her, we would not have found the property we purchased and have been able to have the offer accepted in such a competitive environment with multiple offers. Lily was with us every step of the way and always extremely responsive at all hours of the day and night. We have never seen such a hard working person do all that she can to complete the purchase. We are so grateful that we had Lily as our Realtor. She is clearly "BEST IN CLASS"!


Holly was incredible to work with, and she sold our home and found us another one in less than a month. Steve and I had been talking to her for a while, she set up searches for us, but, most importantly, she understood Steve’s wants and parameters for a new home almost immediately. A dear friend of mine has used Holly 4 times and had only the most incredible things to say about her when she recommended her to us. We feel the same way. She just gets the job done with such pleasure and is acutely dialed into the Manhattan Beach market and is privy to many very exclusive listings before they even hit the market. That is what you need in Manhattan Beach, and that is how we were able to view many homes, including our new one. With walk streets being so desirable, I think Holly would be a great fit for your family to find you that property for a fair price before everyone knows about it. She is also liked and respected by all agents, which makes transactions go smoothly.I wish you the best of luck in your search for a new home. I can assure you that working with Holly will yield the results you want. She is also as nice as she is skilled.

Tina T

Brook is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend for all of one's real estate needs. He always goes the extra mile (more accurate to say extra one hundred miles!). We used him to both buy and sell, and it was an effortless and optimal experience. Just to list a few positives: - His great attitude and friendliness, not to mention his availability and hard work he puts into his job (at one point he climbed the room of the house we were selling himself to clean the windows!) - His no pressure style which supports you both on the buying and and selling side - The myriad connections he has with all sorts of auxiliary services (handymen, staging companies, cleaners, etcs) - Always willing to help a hand with unrelated tasks i.e help with moving! In short Brook is great at his job and everyone and anyone should use him!

Dr G

Ralph helped with the process of buying my first house in 2017. He is very competent, professional, and always available to answer questions. I highly recommend him.
