“I am in my middle 70’s and must say that I have never had such a professional realtor working for me. I have bought and sold 7 homes in my lifetime and out of all of the realtors I have used Ines stands out as a star. She took you thru the whole process step by step and was quick to inform you almost on a daily basis of what was transpiring with the transaction. I might add that I was also going thru some personal issues at the time and she was most considerate of my situation. You will have to go far to find someone that can even come in at a close second when it comes to Ines.”
“How does one describe the consummate Realtor in one word? One who is professional, knows the market and market value of Orange County real estate, knows how to get things done quickly by professionals, she has people!, can help stage a home to show it off in the best way possible, has integrity, compassion and passion for everything she does, believes totally in her client’s and listens to what they want and need?? I can go on but this has been my personal experience. We listed our home and 3 days later it was in escrow, this is not a fluke, it happens over and over again. Well, maybe I can’t use just one word, I’ll use two: “Ines Negrete”! I highly recommend her and her team to help you navigate the tricky waters of real estate. She is simply the best! ”
Sheila Kelsen, Mission Viejo
“Where do I begin! If you are looking for a Realtor that will stand by you through everything, a Realtor who is genuine and honest, a Realtor that will negotiate the heck out of the deal for you, a Realtor that actually picks up their phone and responds to you quickly and happily before, during and after the papers are signed, then PLEASE hire Ines. She is truly an amazing woman and Realtor. We have worked with other Realtors in the past and felt like crying through the entire process. We met Ines at an Open House and then read her reviews on Yelp and Zillow and she lived up to her reputation. She really went above in beyond for us and has restored our faith in Real Estate Agents, well at least this one! Thank you, Ines. You are getting all of our referrals and future business.”
James, Mission Viejo
“I have dealt with 10 realtors in my life and I can say that without a doubt Ines Negrete is by far, and I mean by leaps and bounds, the absolute best. I chose to sell my home in Southern California while living in Louisiana and Ines went well above and beyond to make sure that it was a smooth and easy process for me. Seriously, less stressful than had I been there! Heck, she had the home sold even before she listed it! She is professional, kind, honest, hard working, thoughtful and beyond dependable. Don’t even waste your time with another realtor… she is the real deal!”
Barbara Wicklund, May 31, 2015
“I met Ines a little over three years ago when my husband and I and our twin daughters were renting a house in Eastbrook. She was the friendly neighborhood realtor that left clever little things on our doorstep, like bags of microwave popcorn that said, “just popping by. ” From the minute I met her, I knew she was an honest, hardworking woman. We decided to start looking for a home to buy about two years ago and she was the first and only person I called to represent us. We looked for homes for a few months and decided it was not the right time for us. She was in total agreement and did not push us and said, “Call me when you are ready. ” We kept in touch through email for a little over a year and when we decided the time was right to start looking for a home to purchase, she was so excited and eager to help us! She found us the perfect house in our favorite city and we closed today, a day early I might add because she and her team are phenomenal! I can’t say enough about this woman! She is an extremely professional, caring, honest, cards on the table type of woman! We love you Ines!!!! Thank you so much for your hard work and patience!!!”
Scott & Cat Kinsey, February 3, 2015
“We began our search with an almost impossible list of things that we wanted in our new home. The home we needed to leave, was in a GREAT neighborhood, with GOOD neighbors, a view and in a WONDERFUL location! We had hoped that we could live in that home for the rest of our lives. BUT, two stories were too much for us as we grew older. You took on the task with vigor and determination to find exactly what we wanted. The list was long with emphasis on a view, good neighbors, a culdesac with a complete remodel on the inside and room for our dog, etc.
You used your KNOWLEDGE of the industry, your many associates connections and PRAYER to find just the right home for us!! Then, you led us to a quick and and painless purchase and closing.
We LOVE our new home, a one story, and are happy and content there and are VERY satisfied with all your hard work. If anyone asks us where to find a Professional and Caring real estate agent, you will be the first on our list. The love you have for Christ and your clients is unbelievable. We couldn’t asked for a better real estate agent than you.
Thank you for your friendship and help during this stage in our lives.”
Georgia and Jim, January 12, 2015
“I had the pleasure of meeting Ines several years ago when my family rented a house in the Eastbrook neighborhood. After being very impressed by Ines’s personal marketing strategies and gifts, we chose to use her to help us find our family’s first home. After looking at many properties and putting in a few offers, we came to the realization that it just wasn’t the time for our family to buy a home. I was worried about Ines’s reaction since she had put so much time and effort into our search. I was shocked when she was not only NOT upset, but in total agreement that we should wait. I told my husband then that we would use her no matter what when we were finally ready to buy because I realized that she truly cared about where we ended up.
That time finally came in November of 2014. I’m so glad that we stayed with Ines because we ended up buying the third home we looked at….all due to Ines! That home wasn’t even on my radar, but because Ines knows her clients so well, she knew even better than we did what would ultimately end up being perfect for our family.
Throughout the loan process I continued to be amazed and awed by the speed with which Ines returned messages, phone calls and just got things done. I truly felt that she was as excited and anxious, as we were to close escrow and finally call ourselves homeowners.
During our process of getting pre-approved, we started looking at open houses. We met a real estate broker at one open house who naturally was trying to gain our business. In trying to show us that he was the right man for the job, he let us know that “this wasn’t personal to him and he would get the job done.” It really struck me that buying a home is one of the most personal things you’ll ever do, and I’m not sure about anyone else, but I certainly WANT someone to be personally invested in the most important purchase I will ever make. Ines could not be more personally involved with her clients’ purchase! Not only is Ines incredibly knowledgeable about real estate and she knows the area exceedingly well, but with everything from the initial house search, the offer, the inspection and appraisal, getting our loan approved, closing escrow and finally, handing over the keys, I felt Ines was there with us spiritually and emotionally every single step of the way!”
Devin & Jackey Hornick, January 5, 2015
“I have known Ms Negrete since I moved into this neighborhood. She helped me previously when I had a question on real estate and I offered to take her to lunch, but she declined and said that helping me was just part of the job. That’s who Ines is. Always helping other.
When I needed to sell my house I contacted her and she came right over. Ines patiently sat down with me in my kitchen and helped me understand what it was going to take to sell my home for top dollar. Her Marketing Plan was detailed and easy to follow. 6 weeks later I decided to put my house up for sale and its sold within 25 days. You couldn’t ask for a more professional friendly knowledgeable person than Ines. She will always go the extra mile for you, but most importantly, she will always have your best interest in hand.”
“As a commercial real estate professional of nearly 30 years, I could not have chosen a more qualified and responsive residential agent than Ines Negrete. She made the listing and sales process a breeze. At least she made it look easy. Her wise counsel regarding the listing price produced six competing offers to choose from, all $25,000 over my asking price. She was able to negotiate a lease back so that we did not have to rent and move twice, while my new home was completed.
She was responsive to our every question and need, and made me look like a hero to my wife for choosing her. I would retain Ines Negrete to handle all my residential real estate needs now and in the future.”
David McCarthy, Mission Viejo, 2014
“Inés is an exceptional and completely honest person – which makes it hard to believe she chose Real Estate as her profession. Not only does Inés become thoroughly immersed with her clients every need, she never stops until her clients desired results are fully achieved. While you ‘work’ with Inés, she makes you forget she has others clients and obligations, you are her singular focus and commitment. To say it was nothing less than the perfect working relationship is putting it mildly. It was a true pleasure. If you are buying or selling a home Inés will make the entire experience fulfilling.”
Rona P., Mission Viejo, 2013
“After the disappointment of having our home fall out of escrow with another broker, we asked Ines Negrete to sell our home. She offered us a feeling of confidence and security we had never felt with our previous realtor. Ines was sincere, honest, and always had our best interests at heart. She was knowledgeable, conscientious, and easy to communicate with via phone, email and text. She kept us informed every step of the way, patiently answering our numerous questions and thoroughly explaining the sales process. Ines is professional, yet delightfully personable, and a pleasure to work with. She definitely exceeded our expectations.”
Ken & Patty, Mission Viejo/Orange, 2013
“After looking at dozens of wrong homes with another realtor, my wife and I were referred to Ines. She is fantastic. She immediately made us comfortable and was quickly able to find us the home we were looking for. Ines was truly on our side and made us feel comfortable in a terrible market. She is kind and patient and always available to help with any problem or question. I would highly suggest using her for any real estate transaction, as we would not think of using anyone else.”
Justin & Charity, Trabuco Canyon, 2013
“I highly recommend Ines Negrete. We have purchased and sold numerous homes in our lifetime but never had such a unique experience as we had with Ines. Immediately, we knew we had made the right choice. We were selling and buying during a difficult time in the market. Ines handled every issue with a positive attitude and constantly made us feel confident that with her extensive knowledge our issues would be resolved properly. Our calls and emails were always responded to in a timely manner. I can’t say enough about her knowledge of the market, devotion to her clients and strong work ethic. If you are looking for a highly skilled agent who will have your best interests at heart, Ines is your agent. Give her a call and find your dream home!”
Dan & Lisa, Mission Viejo, 2012
“I have been and continue to be so impressed with Ines’ professionalism, attention to detail and follow-through. She is one of the best Real Estate Agents I’ve worked with and has “Integrity”. I would recommend her to anyone and in fact, I already have. I look forward to continuing our professional and personal relationship with Ines. She found the perfect home for my family and knew exactly what we needed.”
George & Tania, Ladera Ranch, 2010
“My daughter and I met Ines Negrete at an open house and knew immediately that when we were ready to purchase a home we would call her. A few months later, I needed to sell my grandmother’s home and also wanted to purchase a new home for my daughters and I. I cannot begin to adequately express my deep appreciation and gratitude for all that Ines did for us during these two transactions. As both a first time seller and buyer, I needed her very high level of expertise, knowledge and professionalism. But I was also continually grateful for her warmth and heartfelt friendliness during those moments when things got difficult and/or complicated. I am firmly convinced that I got the best representation from the initial listing to final closing on both properties working with Ines. Thank you so very, very much for all the guidance and many little extras that you provided and for becoming not only our Realtor but also our friend.”
Dana, Rancho Santa Margarita, 2011
“Ines made my experience in purchasing my first home an absolute pleasure. She is very aggressive in getting what her client wants and needs, yet with an elegant charm. I have been so happy with my home the past year and very happy to have Ines as my Realtor. I definitely recommend her!”
Matt S., Rancho Santa Margarita, 2010
“Ines is the consummate professional! She marketed our home during a challenging real estate period when there was a glut of foreclosures and short sales flooding the market. Ines held several open houses until she found us the perfect buyer. Additionally, the escrow transaction was quick and smooth as a result of the team that Ines utilizes. Thank you!”
Glenn and Chris E., Lake Forest, 2011
“I was recently faced with the very daunting task of moving my mother into an assisted living facility, following a stroke, and selling her home.
I will be the first person to say, I had absolutely no clue what was involved, how to proceed or where to go. Fortunately for me, I found Ines Negrete.
Ines had all the answers to questions that I did not even know to ask. She quickly assessed my needs, evaluated my mother’s home and proceeded to “take charge” of everything, and I do mean everything. She made all the calls, set up all the appointments and always returned all my calls and emails promptly.
My mother’s home had not seen any major work since being built 25 years prior. Ines took the time to put together a show package so that buyers could see the potential in the home and what “it could be” vs. what it was.
I was concerned that selling my mother’s home would be a lengthy and difficult process. It was anything but. Ines made the process seamless and positive in every manner. Within hours of listing the home she had an offer at listing price. She verified that these were viable buyers and within days we opened escrow and closed in just a little over a month.
Ines made this whole process easy for me. I live out of state and she handled everything for me, emailing me several times a day with updates and setting up electronic documents. Very little of my time was used, but, I know very much of her time was, and she met every deadline in my timeline.
Ines was always pleasant, prompt, and a pleasure to work with.
If you are looking for a realtor who cares about her clients, presents a calm exterior and works her butt off for you, then please use Ines Negrete. She truly puts her clients needs first!!”
Kristine J., Mission Viejo, 2013
“I first met Ines at an open house in our neighborhood. She was super nice and offered us cookies, even though we were not really interested in buying the house (we were just interested in seeing what other homes in our neighborhood looked like). Ines went above and beyond that day, as she engaged with us and gave us her full attention. There are many real estate agents who will give you the cold shoulder once they find out you’re not interested in the sale of the home. I was very impressed!! I should also mention that she was dressed in a Halloween costume, which revealed her fun spirit and enthusiasm for life.
I had also seen her picture and name on many open houses and garage sales for the community and the streets surrounding. As if that all wasn’t enough of a confirmation that she would be an excellent real estate agent and friend, I found out we had a connection through Facebook. I immediately “friended” her and began to ask questions about the real estate market. After many insightful and heart-felt conversations, we became great friends. When my husband and I began to think of selling our home, we immediately called Ines and she met with us within a few days!
We were able to sell our home for top dollar and were so grateful to have the privilege to work with Ines. She always made herself available to her clients and myself. I could tell from the start that she put her clients’ needs first, as she listened carefully to all of our wishes and desires, and was very prompt with getting back to us. She didn’t just treat us like a business transaction or a client, but as a dear, long term friend. She was always very knowledgeable about the market and offered great advice. I have to tell you that I believe she is the hardest working, dedicated, and loyal woman I have ever had the privilege of working with and I think it will be a mistake if you skip out on working with her. Your life will be changed by her kind, gentle spirit, and fiery passion for real estate. You are going to be well cared for once you choose Ines as your real estate agent!”
Zach & Jaime, Mission Viejo, 2013
“Ines is amazing! She works harder than anyone I know and really tries her best to get results. I am so pleased she was our real estate agent and any one who hires her will not be disappointed. Ines not only sold our home, but also found our replacement dream home.”
John & Anne, Rancho Santa Margarita, 2012
“Working with Ines has been such a blessing in our life and an answer to prayer. She took the time to find us exactly what we needed and was willing to work around our busy schedule and us. She is so nice and is such a hard worker who loves and cares about her clients, striving to give them the best service. I would recommend her to anyone, knowing they would be in great hands. Thank you Ines for everything, you’re the best!”
Fred and Kirsten, Mission Viejo, 2011
“I met Ines Negrete through a group of IT professionals. Ines impressed me with her great personality and quick wit. Little did I know that I would get to know her a great deal better when I began my home search. Since I had never experienced buying a home, I was quite ignorant of the process. Ines, with her infinite patience, walked me through all the necessary steps. She was always available to answer every question and quick to respond when the situation seemed overwhelming to me. Ines helped me find the perfect place and when it came time to negotiate the offer, she went into Warp Speed to insure that my offer would be looked at and accepted as quickly as possible. I really got the Deal of the Century because of her. Ines was incredibly graceful in navigating all the obstacles and unforeseen issues. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Ines. She’s patient, understanding, knowledgeable and supportive. I couldn’t have done this without her and if I ever do it again, guess whom I’ll be calling Ines Negrete!”
Judy, Torrance, 2010
“Ines Negrete sets the standard for customer service and professionalism. Her responsiveness to her clients’ needs gives house hunters in this uncertain market much needed confidence. We very much appreciated Ines’ cheerful “can do” attitude; She will leave no stone unturned to provide whatever her clients need!”
Bonnie C., Trabuco Canyon, 2010
“Ines is a business professional who knows her industry well. She really delivers excellent value through her preparation, understanding of the clients needs, and exceeding their expectations. Her knowledge of the area, the market, and her breadth and depth of the real estate market set her apart from anyone I have ever partnered with before. Ines is a true professional with high integrity, charisma, and high self-esteem. I’d strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home or real estate venture!”
Pete Binkewicz , Irvine, 2011
“We were so blessed to have Ines Negrete represent us as our Realtor to sell our home. We knew immediately that she was our only choice. Her ability to communicate well, her organization skills, her knowledge of the market, her warm, and loving and friendly manner were all the ingredients we were looking for in an agent. In this market we were able to sell our home in two months. She marketed our home in a way that brought us the prefect buyer. Thank you for your relentless effort and for treating our “home” like a home and not a property. We love you!”
Mercedes & Carmelo, Mission Viejo, 2011
“While I was scared of selling my home that I have owned for 15 years, I just knew it was time to downsize. Ines was aware of the market and where to price our house. We got top dollar for our house and got an offer within 5 days of being listed. I also used her to buy our new home and we couldn’t be happier. She negotiated a great price. Thanks again for such a great job, you’re an angel.”
Michelle, Mission Viejo, 2011
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Ines for many years on both a personal and professional level. Ines is a very smart, witty, and driven individual. Her caring nature shines through in all she touches. I would recommend Ines to anyone who is looking for a realtor that is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and passionate about what they do.”
Nancy Mundell, Lake Forest
“If you are seeking to sell or buy a home look no further than Ines… she is what every professional should be. Honest, knowledgeable, and hardworking and she is a true delight that will make your real estate experience a very positive experience. Ines both represented us as Sellers and Buyers.”
Steve & Meryl, Laguna Hills, 2012
“Ines represented me to lease my townhouse. She had been highly recommended to me by someone. All I can say, is that I could not be happier with the services she provided to me during and after my place was leased! Her expertise as a realtor was so helpful to me. She was always thorough and professional. Her follow-up is amazing. I cannot say enough positive comments about her.
There is no doubt I will recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor.”
Andrea, Ladera Ranch, 2011, 2012
“Inés took on the project of finding a lessee for my condo. I had been trying desperately to market my condo to lease for 2 months, and with only 2 showings I was frustrated. Once Inés joined in, I just knew we would find a renter. She was very patient with me throughout the entire project. I was a tough client to manage, with many questions, concerns, and anxiety about the entire process. Inés has a calming personality, a levelheaded business mind, and a wealth of experience that severed my needs very well. Inés located a great lessee for me, and just before Christmas they signed the lease and moved in! I will benefit from her service in ANY future real estate transactions. I highly recommend Inés to my family and friends. A+”
Dustan & Janet Baker, Ladera Ranch, 2011, 2012
“I cannot say enough great things about Ines Negrete! She came highly recommended to us and has been a lifesaver! We have used her services several times in the last year as she has helped us rent a condo, lease that condo and then purchase a new home! Each and every time she has been extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough…but most importantly she really goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are well taken care of. We have used a few other realtors in the past, and she by far is the best! I recommend her to all of our friends and anyone who is looking to lease or buy a home.”
Jackie C., Rancho Santa Margarita, 2011
“Ines was a pleasure to work with. She constantly went the extra mile and was an advocate for us. I would highly recommend Ines as a real estate agent. You will not be disappointed.”
William C., Rancho Santa Margarita, 2011
“I chose Ines as a referral from a friend. Not knowing what I was going to get, I was very pleased to find a nice caring honest women that really wanted to find me my dream home. Ines was very helpful and informative the entire time and was very easy to get a hold of! As a new homebuyer she was very, very helpful and patient! I will definitely be using her as my realtor forever! Thank you, Ines!”
Matt & Allie, Huntington Beach, 2012
“When I first met Ines I knew she was a pistol. She was armed and ready to find our next home. What an experience it was from start to finish. From getting pre approved to handing us the keys, Ines was there from the very beginning right through the end. I’ve purchased many homes, but this transaction was flawless. I cannot begin to tell you how much I’ve learned to appreciate Ines and her team of experts. She was always available to us and always made us feel like we were her only clients. Knowledgeable and detailed oriented! Did I mention fun? Looking at homes was never as much fun as it was with Ines. Her personality played a key role and her negotiating skills where top notch. Her words of encouragement when we wanted to throw in the towel was appreciated (and needed). A++. All my future referrals will go to Ines.”
Karen and Jeff, Fountain Valley, 2011
“Ines is an excellent Agent. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate industry and passes her knowledge along to her clients. She helped us sell our home and made sure we were informed and prepared to maximize our gain. Loved working with her and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
Zach H., Dana Point, 2013
“Inés is absolutely fantastic. I had the pleasure of working with her recently when looking for my first home. Her dedication and work ethic are amazing, and without that I fear I’d still be looking for a home. If you are looking for someone who will have your best interests in mind, look no further. Inés is the person for you.”
Chris Czech, Tustin Ranch, 2012, 2013
“Inés recently helped my son and daughter-in-law find and buy their first home. She is very professional and well organized and she was able in a short time to find the home that they wanted. The purchase process for the home turned out to be very difficult due to the seller. Thought it all Inés was able to keep the process on track and was able to close escrow on schedule. I would recommend Inés to anyone in need of the services of a Real Estate professional.”
Norm Leibson, Costa Mesa, 2012
“Ms. Negrete assisted my family with the sale of our deceased parents’ home. Throughout the process she was highly efficient and effective, always professional, always timely, and always willing to go the extra mile if some detail needed attention. Having sold many homes with the help of realtors in my past, I can say with truth and confidence; her outstanding performance exceeded all prior experiences, and all of my expectations. I highly recommend her to anyone desiring a seamless transfer of ownership of their home.”
Kris Nielsen, Fountain Valley, 2012
“I highly recommend Ines Negrete for buying, selling, renting or leasing a home. She was an enormous help to me when I needed to rent my home in Mission Viejo. She took care of all the details and found highly qualified tenants. It has been two years and everything is still running smoothly. Ines is an expert in her field and is well qualified to assist you in any real estate transaction. She keeps you well informed at all times and follows through on every commitment. She is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet.”
Leslie S., Mission Viejo, 2012
