Very helpful and knows the area. Moves quickly on your behalf and points out things that you may not think of when you are very busy. Takes very good care of you and finds out information when you need it.

We moved to CA from MN in October 2017. We met Bryan in August 2017 to help us find our home. His knowledge of the area was spot on as well as his in depth experience in the industry. The Hakola’s were amazing to work with & we would highly recommend choosing them for your needs. After working with Bryan we are actually disappointed in our agent back in MN who is selling our home. Not nearly as dedicated. Thank you again for all of help & continued help on things.

They were very helpful. Their knowledge of the area in South Orange County was excellent. It was helpful to have the whole family available to assist if you needed help.

Karen was extremely accommodating to our busy schedules and quick to respond. She really knew the Southern Orange County areas we were interested in and helped navigate us to the more desirable neighborhoods. It was nice when Steve came to our inspections and walk-throughs to discuss any work (improvements or repairs) we felt would be necessary. He always had referrals and suggestions to offer us which was very helpful. Thank you Karen and Steve for a smooth and quick transaction! We love our new home…
