Monarch Real Estate - Transforming Your Dreams Into Reality

Testimonials

Above and beyond on every detail

If you’re looking for someone to go above and beyond on every detail then she’s your gal! While in escrow for our new home she came up with a plan for work that should be done at our existing home so it would fly off the market. She helped us spend $15,000 so we could make an additional $40,000  over what she would have recommended us listing our home for without the work. The whole idea was to make it appealing to as many buyers as possible! And that she did! We updated countertops and backsplash in the kitchen and the master bath. We also did a new sink in the kitchen, new carpet throughout and new flooring in master! She also had her gardener take over so the yard looked exactly how she wanted it too for listing. We listed the day after Christmas with more showings I could have thought possible for a holiday week. We were in escrow in 4 days and even had a backup offer over asking! This women is awesome so I hope if your planning on buying or selling you give her a shot!

Buying and selling a home is an exciting and stressful experience.

Buying and selling a home is an exciting and stressful experience.  As a first time homeowner and first time seller, CaLee kept me informed at every step of the process.  When the process became challenging CaLee was right there with me providing her flawlessly logical counsel and in the end  CaLee’s pricing strategy was spot on and I closed above the list price, which was above the market price.

I have never been more at ease of mind

I have never been more at ease of mind than i was with Calee for some reason i knew it would all work out… that was an under statement, before we could even think of what was needed next she already had it going!! Not only were we buying a house, we were selling one!!! I would never attempt  something like this without her guidance period.

Nobody knows the Ladera Ranch market better than CaLee.

Nobody knows the Ladera Ranch market better than CaLee.  We had a dream of downsizing from our Ladera Ranch home of 15 years and finding a single-story home close to the beach. CaLee and her skilled team helped make that dream a reality. From helping us coordinate a kitchen remodel on our Ladera  Ranch home in order to get top dollar, to thinking outside the box and finding us a fixer-upper in our ideal neighborhood, CaLee really listened to us and always went the extra mile. CaLee has an amazing team of decorators, contractors and real estate professionals that helped make the home buying/selling process go very smoothly. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the exceptional service and attention to detail we received from CaLee and her team.

Transformed home sold during 1st weekend.

Provided clear options to update home to make more sale-able. Transformed home sold during 1st weekend. Worked very hard to ensure that we got the best deal selling our home and purchasing our replacement home. CaLee far exceeded our expectations.

We were impressed with her knowledge of the neighborhoods in Ladera Ranch.

At our first casual meeting CaLee, we were impressed with her knowledge of the neighborhoods in Ladera Ranch.  She asked questions about what we were looking for and immediately knew which neighborhoods would be a good fit for us. She previewed listings for us, which saved us a lot of time. She  only brought us to listings that were strong contenders and gave us her honest opinion throughout the process.  Her professionalism was evident throughout the escrow process and her availability for phone calls truly made us feel like the priority. There were many times that we called her at off-hours and she always picked up.  Even after closing, she continues to bring value with suggestions for contractors and vendors.  If you want to work with someone who is dialed-in to the Ladera Ranch community in every way and will have your best interest at the forefront, CaLee is your agent!
