★★★★★
"Thank you and your team for a terrific job from beginning to end. That's exactly what I asked for when we met and you delivered! I also know having a lawyer for a client has its challenges, and you met them as well." - Seller

★★★★★
"We recently sold our house in one week for more than the asking price. Andrew and Fran provided excellent advice and a reliable team who publicized the property, showed it, arranged for the inspections and processed all the documents in a highly professional and efficient manner. It is our pleasure to commend and recommend them." - B. Newman & M. Newman

★★★★★
" Andrew and Fran helped us every step of the way. When purchasing a home it can be difficult with the amount of information. They explained everything to us and also made sure that every little detail was inspected before the house was purchased. They had me check on things I never even thought of. Also, there was tons of follow up after I moved in. This was the best, most easiest experience I have ever had purchasing a home. " - R. Goldklang

★★★★★
" Thank you so much for all you did to manage the sale of our Encino home. From start to finish, you were with us at every step along the way. Your recommendations of what we needed to do to prepare the house for sale, secure reliable contractors and staging professionals, even find a moving company, were uniformly excellent and spot on. When the house went on the market, you were there to market the property, screen prospective buyers, and obtain multiple bids on our home. Your consistent professionalism and years of experience ensured that we sold our house at well over the list price. We also want to acknowledge the outstanding team at Spitz | Chavez Group that worked behind the scenes with you and us throughout the process. Your staff were attentive to all our requests, and they are to be commended for their dedication and commitment. We are pleased to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. Thank you again and very best wishes to you and the Spitz | Chavez Group. " - M. and L. Diamond

★★★★★
" Spitz | Chavez Group was awesome. We were looking for a house during the pandemic and they made sure we got into so many houses and advised us on the potential pricing for every house. Great agents who will 100% make sure you not only get the best home you can, but ensure the buying process is as easy as possible (they handle all of the inspections) and that you can close with no issues. " - Josh & Nancy

★★★★★
" As I reflect sitting here in my new home, I have nothing but gratitude and appreciation for Andrew and his team. This is mine and my husband's first home and we had no idea what this process entailed. From the start, Andrew and Margie walked us through each step and were always available to answer our questions and ease our anxiety. Fast forward to the bidding war we found ourselves in and Andrew was our ultimate advocate and secured us our perfect first home. Special thank you to Fran to help us close the deal. Even after we closed and needed to tie up loose ends, Doris was always attentive and available to help us. This team's professionalism and reliability is unparalleled and we cannot imagine going anywhere else. Thank you!" - Ben & Becca

★★★★★
" On behalf of my brothers and sisters I would like to sincerely thank you for the professional effort in the marketing and sale of my parents’ home in Encino. In a market where it is difficult to predict pricing you recommended a precise and successful strategy. Additionally, both you and your manager handled the multiple offers you received most professionally and advised us in a manner that was in our best interest as our Listing Agent. Thank you again for a very professional and successful endeavor on behalf of our family." - John R. Miller

★★★★★
" On behalf of Steve and myself, we wanted to send our deepest gratitude to everyone on the Spitz/Chavez Team! Obviously, this was very emotional for us, but with your help and professionalism, you turned the situation into a very positive experience." - Steve Srour & Denise Srour-Cruz

★★★★★
"Andrew and Fran did a fantastic job of helping us manage through an incredibly exciting, but stressful time. We needed to buy one house while selling another, pack and move all within a 30 day window...with two young kids and a dog. Their team divides and conquers to ensure that everything runs smoothly and all details are attended to. Their professionalism, experience and responsiveness kept us confident that we could in fact accomplish what seemed like an impossible task. We're thrilled the way everything worked out." - Jason & Victoria

★★★★★
" I am so grateful to Andrew and Fran, our parents had recently passed away and it was time to sell their Encino home. Andrew and his stellar team couldn’t have been more kind, supportive and helpful as they guided my sister and me through the process. Their team seamlessly listed the house on the market, took offers, provided valued consultation, advocated on our behalf and closed the purchase. They took all the stress out of the process. I knew I was in hands that I could trust. And they made executing all the paperwork a breeze! I could not recommend them more strongly!" - James Stern

★★★★★
"I am writing to thank you for your help in recently selling my home. Within four days of listing I had multiple offers and one was a bonafide buyer. The experience was made stress free by your conscientious and extremely professional team. Your associates were there to help through the process. In addition, your team was able to sell my daughter’s home, in multiple offers within a week of listing and over listing price. I would recommend them in the future." - Linda Linden

★★★★★
"Andrew and Fran are honest, knowledgeable, and most importantly, unbiased in their opinion. We never felt pressure to accept anything that we were not absolutely sure of. We were most impressed with the manner in which they served our interests" - Kenneth Miller

★★★★★
" You really seemed to know all the details and legal ramifications of the process...it was very reassuring to have your prompt advice and guidance each step of the way. You created an ‘air of excitement’ and a momentum that really helped move our property quickly." - Marril Berge

★★★★★
" I was thoroughly impressed by your calm and steady determination to make things work during those inevitable bumps that pop up during escrow. This deal could have gone sour several times, but you managed to keep it alive with coolheaded composure and tons of patience. I’ve dealt with other so-called ‘top’ agents who don’t have half the skills." - Kevin Kelton

★★★★★
" Thank you for the marvelous care you gave us throughout the process of selling our home in Sherman Oaks. You kept us informed, coached us and led us through so that we realized the most we could get from our 2 bedroom home. When we had questions, one of you responded promptly and accurately. We never felt alone wondering what was happening. We were happily surprised by the extra help we got with finding a new home in the Santa Barbara area and with the move itself. Mary Whitney and Sam at Best LA movers were easy to work with and gave us good service. Thank you very much for the care you gave us in the sale of our house. " - Beth Boyd & Gary Boyd

★★★★★
"If only all of life could go as smoothly as the sale of the Sherman Oaks home. You did exactly as promised: a very quick and easy sale, without any hiccups, and at the listed price. I was also pleased by how frequently we were apprised of all meaningful details both before and during the escrow period. Your sterling reputation is certainly well deserved." - Rob Gandin

★★★★★
"Jill and I would like to thank you for the great job you did accomplishing something that many people told us would be very difficult to do: buying and selling simultaneously. Not only did you time the sale of our former house in Sherman Oaks and the purchase of our new house in Encino so that escrow would close simultaneously, but you did so after the house we were selling in Sherman Oaks fell out of escrow. Within three days of losing the first buyer, you had found another buyer for us and both escrows were able to close on time without any further complications. Accomplishing the above is a testament to your great abilities to keep transactions together, even in the face of difficult circumstances. However, even more important is the following fact: the house you found for us in Encino is great. We look forward to spending many years here. Thanks again for all of your efforts over the past couple of months. We greatly appreciate it." - Kerry Samovar

★★★★★
"As you know our home had been previously listed with a lackluster results...after 5 months no offers and no buyer in sight. I was skeptical that changing agents would make any difference. Thankfully I was wrong and can openly admit it. After only one day on the market you presented us with multiple offers (all above listing price). You and your team handled every detail with professionalism. We feel we got the absolute best price for our house and ‘the buyers’ have written to us and feel they too got the best deal possible; it’s too good to be true! I have been the proud seller of nine homes and this was the single best experience ever. From listing to closing, you are simply the best. I have bragged to everyone about you and your team. I only hope they all have the foresight to call Spitz | Chavez Group first. " - M. Kelly Drexel
