Ginger,

There are a number of agents who specialize in Playa Vista and a recommendation will depend on whether you are buying or selling.

The very best thing that you can do is find a professional Realtor@ to represent you in either case. If you are buying there are a few things I would tell you. First is to NOT sign a buyer's broker agreement with anyone. This is a form an agent will use to tie you up and ensure any transaction you make will only be through them. Find an agent who is happy to perform their services with the knowledge that if they do not properly meet your expectations they will lose your business.

Second, NEVER call a listing agent about a home they have listed as their initial relationship with the seller will prevent you from working out the best deal.

Finally, I would recommend that you interview at least three qualified agents in your area to assist you and select one who you feel will have your best interests as their primary goal.

If you are selling, my recommendations are to interview at least three agents and have them make a presentation that includes a full market analysis affecting your home and the projected value in today's market. Do not go with the agent who says what you want to hear but instead the one who has taken the time and effort to clearly present the facts. If the first three do not cut the mustard invite three more. Do not sign a listing agreement at the initial presentation and get a list of their active listings (see below).

When I list a home I always tell the client I am happy to take a listing for 45 days and if they are not 100% satisfied with my services I insist they fire me. In fact, I write into each contract that if for any reason I am not doing what I said that they may cancel the contract. I suggest you find one that will offer the same guarantee.

Before signing anything, get a list of their current listings and go to http://www.trulia.com, http://www.realtor.com, http://www.homes.com, and others and check out the presentation. Are there multiple photographs that are professionally presented? Is there a clear and inviting description of the property that tells a story? If not, do NOT hire this agent. About 90% of potential buyers are going to find your home on line and if it is not well presented you can do better.

If you would like me to recommend a professional agent in your area who I feel you should include on your list of those to interview please feel free to contact me and I would be very happy to help.
