If you want to work with a professional who is responsive, knowledgeable and patient then Esmeralda is the professional you should work with. Esmeralda was accommodating and creative in thinking about what our family felt we needed versus what was available in the inventory at the time. She understood the effort and stress that relocating to another city creates and was very helpful. She fielded all of our questions in a timely manner and was honest about what we could expect. She was even available after closing to help us with questions regarding services and general new arrival questions. She cared enough about our relocation effort that it felt like we were her only client. I strongly recommend Esmeralda if you want a hands on professional who knows what they’re doing but more importantly cares about the professional service that they’re providing.

Esmeralda is very knowledgeable in what she does. As a first time homebuyer, she provided the time we needed to answer any and all of our questions and/or concerns that came up throughout the entire process. If anyone is looking for an agent who is willing to give 110%, then look no further. She is quick and always on top of things. There were times where it could have been very stressful, but with her leadership and expertise, she was able to make sure that things ran smoothly. For example, the sellers agent had a fulltime job during the day and had limited time to perform their duties that were necessary to complete the sale. Esmeralda took the initiative to not only do her part for us, the buyers, but even made up for the shortcomings the sellers agent had as well. We couldn’t thank her enough for the dedication she has for her clients.

As a first time home buyer with big expectations and a limited budget, Esmeralda made our first time buying experience a breeze. With her assistance, we were able to purchase a home that met every one of my desires. Even with difficult sellers, she handled everything with pure professionalism and ease. Esmeralda's experience and knowledge shines bright. She's a true gem in the vast array of RE Agents.

Future Buyers: As a first time buyer I really had no clue of where to start and what the important questions I needed answered before putting in a offer or deciding if a home was a good fit for me and my partner or not. At first I went with an agent I had never researched but I “thought” we had a connection. Before anything decide whether or not the agent has the best interest at heart for you whether it’s as a seller or a buyer. My first agent was a big mistake and I quickly realized I was going no where with her and found Esmeralda after calling and emailing her. I met her at a home I was interested in and not only did she explain the home buying process crystal clear but she also pointed out things in the home that were good and bad. She was knowledgeable about the area, informed on market pricing and guided us through a number of offers and finally a successful transaction. Esmeralda really knows what she’s doing and she is not PUSHY in anyway on buying the first home right away. When buying a home you want the realtor to be persistent and reachable. Esmeralda always found a way to communicate with me. I did see about 8 homes with Esmeralda and with every single one she gave me her honest opinion on my chances of getting the home in this high demand market and although it wasn’t always the best news to hear at least I wouldn’t get my hopes up on a house that was going to go past my price range. Because of Esmeralda’s excellent work, she knew how to make our offer competitive and that’s something that is key in the home buying process. She is constant communication with sellers and understand how to negotiate in order to close deals. She helped us though the whole process from beginning to end, and even after the home closed. Both my partner and I considered ourselves incredibly lucky to have found Esmeralda, and recommend her highly to the LGBT community. She is bound to find you the right home, and in the right community. Sincerely, Carlos and Elmer

Esmeralda is simply in a class by herself. I recently puchased a home with her help and Esmeralda went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor. She is very caring and patient, I felt completely at ease knowing she was handling the transaction. Completely professional and personable. ZipRealty has a gem here. Thank you Esmeralda.

Esmer is a good agent from day one to the end. She is very trustworthy.We knew her through her phone call which started all.We meet in person viewing an open house , one after another. She was there until she turned over the keys to the unit. We feel we had a family with her. Being a first time buyer entails a lot of questions which she patiently answers .Our fears were minimize because of the prompt reply to our inquiries. I love working with her again in the future and gladly recommend her to friends and families.She is a great asset to the company.

Esmeralda is a superb Realtor and an even better person. I've worked with a few realtors in the past and none of them paid me the same attention as Esmeralda has. In my opinion, the most critical element of being a realtor is making the client feel comfortable with making one of the most serious decisions someone will ever make - spending their life savings on a piece of property. That can be extremely scary! Esmeralda has done an exceptional job at making sure I know every angle of the deal, what it all means, and what the future might bring for the property as well. Also, her comprehensive knowledge extends beyond just buying/selling. She has been able to answer many of our questions about tenants, section 8, repairs, neighborhoods, etc. Most realtors I've dealt with just want to close the deal as fast as possible. Esmeralda was was most concerned that I was satisfied with my deal....and I'm very happy!

I’m so grateful to have found Esmeralda. I can’t say enough about her work ethic and professionalism. She made every effort to help us out in every aspect of our journey. If you’ve never bought a home before, I can tell you it is a great undertaking. It is a long and difficult process. Esmeralda walked us through the whole thing from beginning to end. I’ve heard horror stories about purchasing and selling homes, and I was lucky enough to have an intelligent and thorough person helping me. She knows the business well, and because of her we didn’t end up selling our home before we had a new one to move into. It sounds simple, but it’s a technicality that happens more often, than not. She examined all aspects of the process and explained the whole thing with exceptional patience, and professionalism. She pays attention to the small details we didn’t think about, such as changing the locks. She took it upon herself to order a new set of keys for the whole house, and saved us the trouble. Months after purchasing our home, she was still involved and ready to help us with any problem. It’s been nearly a year, and we still call her for help and advice on issues with our home. Thank you, Esmeralda. We will definitely call you If we’re in need of selling or buying a new home.

Esmeralda did a great job listing our house. She held several open houses for us and talked us off the ledge when we didn't get the results we thought we would of got right away. She reminded us to be patient and the right buyer eventually came our way three weeks later.

I would give her MORE than FIVE STARS if I could! She priced my home right at the beginning to generate the maximum interest. This resulted in a very good selling price! She was in constant contact with me during the entire process, and very responsive with all my concerns. I've bought and sold about a dozen properties in my lifetime and she was the best Realtor I've had. I highly recommend her!

Esmeralda was fantastic to work with! I couldn't have asked for a better agent for my first time home-buying experience. Esmeralda moved at my pace. From our first conversation, she identified my needs and said that she would be there whenever I was ready to start looking. When I was ready, she was right there as promised and was always available. She made me feel like I was her only client. Esmeralda was never pushy. She truly wanted to help me find the right home for me which I truly appreciated. When we found our home, Esmeralda was phenomenal at negotiating terms and helped to guide us to come in with a strong offer. She was also there and available every step of the way through the escrow process. I couldn't be happier with the service I received!

Words are not enough to thank everything Esmeralda has done for us. We were lost and did not know where to start, the only clear thing we had in mind was that we wanted a house. Esmeralda helped us find the perfect home and with her patient everything felt easier. She is still helping us with the process and all the implications that buying a house involve, even though we close the deal more than a month ago. We never felt pressure when looking at properties and she was able to manage all the questions we had. When the time for an offer came, she wisely advised us to offer the right amount. We truly believe that we just bought the deal of our lives thanks to her help. Besides being an excellent real state agent, she is an amazing patient woman. I hope that many people could go through the experience of buying a house with the help of Esmeralda, so their experience could become easy and smooth. Thank you again Esmeralda!!!

I cant say enough about working with Esmeralda. I looked for 4 yrs, 3 realtors, and as they say 'third one is the charm.' She really knows her stuff! I wish I had started with her from the go! She followed up with me step by step and made the home buying experience as painless as possible. Very patient and diligent in finding you the right home and above all is a realist. One thing I do value the most is her being trustworthy, especially when it comes to a major purchase as buying a home. She really concentrates on your buying needs and places you in complete comfort knowing it's a tough market to buy a house in. Her professionalism and dedication stand out the most. Her experience and knowledge of the real estate business are beyond her years. I am definitely happy recommending her to anyone I know who is shopping for a home.

I connected with Esmeralda by chance through her company website. She worked hard to help me with my purchase right from the start. It wasn't always smooth sailing, but buying a home rarely is. I had very specific needs in a home and she was diligent and persistent in finding that right home. I came to her with a very tight time frame and she came through for me. I appreciate her hard work, and her passion to get the job done and see it through. She always stayed a step ahead and I knew she was driving the process. I am extremely pleased and at peace with my home buying experience. Esmeralda is the reason I was able to relocate quickly and find a home that met my needs. I will recommend her to anyone who is ready to ready to buy a home.

I wish i would of found her a couple of years ago when I started my home search.She is very thorough and patient throughout the entire process, something I found very valuable through this process. Esmeralda has gone completely above and beyond what I imagined out of a real estate agent. She has my family's and my business for life!!! She also has great negotiating skills and will go to bat for you with even the toughest sellers agents.

Esmeralda was extremely patient throughout the entire home buying process and made it her priority to ensure I would not be disappointed. On top of this, she was responsive and quick to work on my behalf. Many agents can be pushy and think they know what's best for their clients - Esmeralda gave me the space to come to my own conclusions, which I valued tremendously. I will be recommending Esmeralda to my circle of family, friends, and peers when their times come to purchase a home in Los Angeles.

I found my agent Esmeralda Castenada to be very helpful and instrumental through the time we were looking for a home. She provided us with such professional and positive feedback during our search. Esmeralda took the time to understand what type of property we were looking for and provided us with data based on our requests. What I especially liked about Esmeralda is that she allowed us to make decisions on what we wanted in a home, and was very accommodating and respected our decisions. I could not have been more pleased with our agent, and we hope to do business with her very soon in our next real estate purchase.

Buying a home is a nerve racking process; however Esmeralda was on top of everything and this process went smoothly. If you are looking for an outstanding real estate agent, she is the person you want working on your team.

Esmeralda was my agent through a construction-delayed 4-month escrow. I couldn't have done it with anyone else. She was my right hand - always responsive, explained everything for this first time buyer, gave advice for lenders and loans, and was a confidant through the several bumps in the road. I could not be more satisfied with the level of service I was given.

We are extremely pleased with Ziprealty and the assigned team to assist us with the purchase of our new home. Purchasing a home can be a frustrating and stressful process, but Ingrid and Es sure made it painless. We were assigned to work with Esmerelda but Ingrid assist us with the closing process because the bid we made through Ingrid while Es was away was accepted. Ingrid was patient and even ask her coworker John to assist us while she's busy with other clients. We particularly appreciate Ingrid's patient with the late night phone calls. This is customer service at its best!!! Thanks Ingrid for your on going support and thanks Es for showing us 40+ homes. We'll definitely recommend friends and family to you two. Ada and Herbert
