Testimonials

Seller | Newport Beach

Just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did in selling the two properties for our family group. I'm sure it was difficult dealing with so many different owners on two properties at once, but you handled it so smoothly. It has been a tough couple of years for me and my siblings following our parents' deaths, and we are glad to now have the sale of the houses behind us. We appreciate your professionalism and expertise which resulted in such successful sales.

"Experience that matters” We found that when you team with Art Rivera at Berkshire Hathaway, you get more than a real estate salesperson. You get experience, professionalism, knowledge and a full team of support. We listed our home with Art Rivera and received several bonuses. First, Art teams with his wife Jane. Together their efforts to sell your property more than double, together they are a true dynamic force. Art Rivera starts the process to sell your property by fully evaluating its value in the current market. He presented us with a detailed portfolio of information on the market, our homes value and what an anticipated sale price would be. Not only did he evaluate the market value, he personally examines the property to determine how you can maximize its appeal and positively impact its sale price. This is where his over 30+ years of experience in the realty profession is apparent. After evaluating the property, he starts to bring in more members of the team he has access to. In our case, we had bought a new home and had already started the move prior to selling our current home. Rooms were void of furnishings. He knew just the correct stagger to fill those rooms and increase the appeal. Small repairs were required and he had a list of professionals to fix each and every defect. The photographs taken, the brochures prepared and the commitment to selling our property was outstanding. Ours was not an easy sale process. We had a total of five buyers. Four of which pulled their offers. Disappointing as it was, Art and Jane Rivera kept our hopes up. Art reminded us we had a great property and that a buyer would come. Well that buyer did come and the assistance Art Rivera gave us in negotiating a sales price resulted in a very positive price. We received a record price in our neighborhood. We thank Art and Jane Rivera and the support of the Berkshire Hathaway team for making the sale of our home of 32 years a positive experience. With a return of investment that was in large part due to the professional guidance they provided at each step of the process. Thank you, Art Rivera. You kept us sane and level headed and we will always remember that.
