A little about me
and why I love real estate
Our clients are awesome
and here is what they are saying
We couldn’t have asked for a better agent and team to help us find our dream home! Andrea's professionalism and knowledge kept us informed every step of the way, as well as helped us navigate through some tricky inspection issues. As a commercial real estate broker, I understand the importance of having a market expert and fiduciary on your side, which paid in spades throughout the transaction. We will definitely use Andrea and the Ballesteros Group again and would highly recommend her and her team to our friends, family, and colleagues. They're the best!
The Ballesteros Group did a great job of selling our family Home in Laguna Beach. I am a veteran real estate agent in Santa Barbara and know my way around a real estate transaction. They did quality work, were very knowledgeable and had no problems with some of the challenges that came up with this sale.
I highly recommend the Team Ballesteros!
Our home hit the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) on a Saturday and we had our first Broker's Open House the following Wednesday. 67 brokers came by, with 21 subsequent showings over the next 3 days. By Saturday we ended up with multiple offers much higher than our asking price, with backup offers to boot! A master with contract negotiations, Andrea came up with a deal that was great for us and made the buyer happy as well. She knows South Orange County like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Andrea's attention when it comes to property for sale in this area. Her strategy for pricing our home was very thoughtful and detail oriented. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to help settle on an attractive price that would not scare away buyers. She also helped us to understand that a well priced home properly marketed often helps maximize sales price. She also mentioned that beautiful photos were critical and brought in one of best photographers in the area.
Andrea sold my home to me in Corona del Mar many years ago. She subsequently assisted me in getting the perfect tenants for the property during the time my work had taken me away from CdM. And when I decided to sell, Andrea and her capable team were outstanding. Andrea's communication and follow through were impeccable - she kept me updated (I was a long-distance seller) on every part of the transaction from beginning to end. She is knowledgeable, sincere, honest, direct and has genuine care and the best interest of her client in mind. She and her team went above and beyond my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
We were very impressed by Andrea Ballesteros’ initial presentation, by her thoroughness and honesty. She is knowledgeable about the local market and pricing trends, and guided us to a sale price that both met our needs and was fair. She was very patient about our need to have construction done, which delayed the broker’s preview for 2 months. She never pressured us, but rather used this time to pre-market the house. When we were ready, she had the photography, preview and an open house scheduled immediately. We never got to the open house though, because we sold in 5 days! Andrea, J.J., Kaz and Rosie have guided us through the selling and relocation process with skill and compassion. They made what is a very stressful event in life run very smoothly. We would recommend the Ballesteros Group to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent in South County.
It has been a pleasure having Andrea and her team guide us through the sale of our home. Knowing, she or a team member was always available was important to us. Her strong professionalism paired with her friendly demeanor is the perfect combination. Our home sold quickly with her expertise. We look forward to a continued relationship with Andrea and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of real estate services.
When it came time to sell my home in Ladera ranch, good friends recommended Andrea Ballesteros to me. Given that Andrea was referred by friends, my expectations of her as a Real Estate professional were high to begin with. From our first meeting, through the sale of my home, Andrea exceeded those expectations with her knowledge, drive and personalized service. She handled the entire process with sensitivity and confidence which lead to a successful sale and satisfied seller and buyer. I would highly recommend Andrea and her professional team to those looking for a realtor who skillfully navigates through the highly complex real estate environment, while keeping her clients consistently updated and informed. I would definitely welcome Andrea’s representation in my future real estate transactions.
Andrea Ballesteros, agent with First Team Estates, and her dedicated support team, are the consummate real estate professionals, providing an effective mix of deep knowledge of the local real estate market, astute transaction knowledge and excellent, responsive, client service- all done with style and grace. Plus, she is a good negotiator and total pleasure to work with!
Andrea and the team were extremely responsive, great communicators, and very understanding throughout a complicated transaction. They showed great empathy and resolve in working through an estate sale. The team added value by working with and negotiating with required vendors , saving the estate thousands of dollars. The team was there for all critical meetings, appointments and oversaw the transformation that the house needed to be ready for sale. Great people providing great service for a great outcome.
