What Clients Are Saying

I don't write reviews like this often but Felipe really deserves it as he not only met but actually exceeded our expectations. I actually doubt we would now own a home without his help. It didn't happen quite as I expected. Felipe was doing an open house and we stumbled across it. Later , my wife told me the place was on her radar but a bit out of our price range so she never suggested having a look. I walked in anyway as I needed out of the car and knew immediately she would love it. Felipe provided just the right amount of friendly aggressiveness in getting me to tender an offer. The market was only starting to go crazy again so bidding a bit low still made sense. Felipe told us the company that had flipped the place owed him a favor so he would have first dibs to get our offer in despite several competitive offers. Not yet really knowing Felipe yet, I assumed this was a BS broker's line. Later, found out this was no line and we would have lost out to a higher offer if this weren't the case. Point is that Felipe is honest, aggressive in a good way, and gets the job done in a timely, expedient manner. I also got the impression he reads people well so should be great at showing suitable properties for all his customers. BTW, he also is great at hooking you up with a network of reliable people for all your needs. I really don't think you could go wrong with Felipe as your broker.

John Zimmerman Buyer

Felipe found us a house according to our needs and his negotiating skill is excellent. We won' t get the short sale house our family is enjoying now without his negotiating skill. Honest, very family oriented and has a high regards for veterans like me. Our friendship only started when we were house hunting and till now my kids enjoy seeing him. Very knowledgeable in his career. We still call / text him if we need anything... Any thing ! Our family love this guy !

Noel Santiago Buyer

Great personality and easy to work with. I may have been Felipe's most difficult buyer but he made the experience bearable. My wife and I looked at over 30 houses before we made up our minds. I would recommend Felipe's services to anyone looking to buy/sell a home.

Tai Ha Buyer

Felipe's sense of urgency and his willingness to go over and beyond for his customers set's him apart from the rest. Felipe helped me find my current residence that I am very happy with! The last thing on my mind was trying to navigate through websites looking for homes, Felipe eliminated this tedious task by always keeping me up to date with new listings along with follow up calls.

Omar Ennabe Buyer

Felipe Benavides. was referred to me by My son I took my son's advice and had enlisted him to find me a house. He went to work immediately and worked very diligently until he found the right house that we were looking for. He worked with us until the escrow was closed & we took possession of the house. I was so pleased with Felipe's professionalism that I used him again a year later when I wanted to purchase a rental property. He handed the purchase of our 2nd house with the same sense of urgency. If you are thinking to buy a house and don't know who you can trust give Felipe a call. You will be glad that you did.

Pilar R Buyer

I've worked with Felipe several times on the buying and selling sides. He is someone that ownes the transaction so I don't have to worry about the little things. He fights for my best interests so I'm not getting nickel and dimed by a picky buyer. I definitely recommend Felipe.

Brett Ch Seller

We bought our home last spring with the tireless efforts of Felipe. He met us at all of the homes & open houses that we wanted to see. There were quite a few! He took us to some others that he thought we may like based on our specs. He drove with us through different neighborhoods to see what we thought. Felipe truly LISTENED to us in what we want. He was able to pull together our positive & negative comments and even knew what we wanted even when we weren't able to articulate it. After some persistent and tireless efforts by Felipe on a couple of offers that didn't work out, we found our "forever home!" His help was more than we could have asked for. He accompanied us for our walk through, showed us what to look for and pointed out many things. This was invaluable as this was our first purchase of a previously owned home. We closed in only 5 weeks I think. We couldn't be happier! Felipe continues to check in with us on occasion to see how things are going. Amazing! On a side note, Felipe was amazing with our kids. They adore him!

Derek Domeracki Buyer

Felipe has been a huge asset to my home buying experience. I first met him 3 years ago when purchasing my condo after my divorce, it was my first experience and he made it easy and Walked me through the process. I remarried this October and the first person I called when looking for a house was Felipe. We purchased our amazing house October of this past year.Even when he was in Colombia he was just a phone call away. Now he is helping me rent my condo. He is truly not just our agent but now apart of family! Thank you Felipe for your tireless efforts!

Marea Denicola Buyer

Felipe was a true professional and responded quickly to our needs. My wife and I appreciated his attention to detail and the time he took to resolve small repairs needed on our purchase. Even after our purchase, he kept in touch and made sure we were completely happy with our new home.

John Barragan Buyer

First time home-buyer here. Felipe was amazing to work with, he's incredibly helpful and knowledgeable for someone like me who went into the real estate market blind. We've run into some problems with sellers who have been unwilling to budge, but thanks to Felipe I was able to walk away from a toxic deal with every penny. Additionally, he has been able to look through the properties with a very critical eye, and noted a number of things I wouldn't have even known to look for. I highly recommend him

Adam G Buyer

Felipe Benavides didn’t just sell us a house, he found us our home. In all the back-and-forth tug-of-war that comes with a house hunt or home sale, he really did make the whole process seem effortless. My husband and I are overjoyed to be moving into our new home, a feeling that I firmly believe would not be this fulfilling if it weren’t for Felipe’s help! Our journey with Felipe began in January 2016 when he helped us list a condo I owned. At our first meeting, I was very clear about what my wants and expectations were from this process. Specifically, I had a desired list price and sell price in mind. That said, I was basing all of my opinions on the housing market as it was when I bought the condo rather than today’s. Felipe listened to everything we had to say, and proceeded to lay out more realistic expectations regarding where our start and end points would be with the sale of our home. With my reluctant consent, Felipe devised a strategy that got the condo sold in just 5 days above my desired sell price! As the sale of the condo occurred much faster than anticipated, my husband and I found a temporary living solution so that we could take our time with our house hunt. Felipe accompanied us on several appointments, and also made it possible for us to view some properties in his absence. He was transparent throughout the process, being open with us regarding what our money could reasonably buy us in various areas. After listening to our feedback about each property, he was open to giving us his own opinions about the short and long term pros and cons of the property based on that feedback. Just as the sale of my condo resulted in a multiple offer situation, which superseded the list price, so did we find ourselves on that same side of the coin when we found the house we wanted to bid on. Our offer was one of seven. Felipe really stepped up to bat for us, and he sold the homeowners on us just as he had sold us on the home. THANK YOU, FELIPE!

I would recommend Felipe to any friend or relative. He is on top of his game. In this highly competitive market, you need a bull dog as your realtor. That’s Felipe- in the right sense of the expression. His best asset is his ability to listen. We met for about 1 hour to discuss priorities, budget, etc. Within two weeks, we were in escrow. Just like that. If you live in Orange County, you understand how rare this sounds but it’s true. We are extremely thankful to Felipe for walking us through a smooth buying process as first time homebuyers.

Jose A Pacheco Buyer

Felipe is not only a great Realtor, but genuine person as well. You can tell he truly cares for his clients and will go out of his way to get you into the home of your dreams! He is a very patient and knowledgeable agent who helped my family and I. His professionalism, market knowledge, and communication skills were top notch. Thank you, Felipe!
