I recently had the pleasure of working with Luis Barreto to purchase our new dream home. From start to finish, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Luis. He was professional, and highly knowledgeable about the market. He always made sure my husband and I were informed every step of the way. If we had an issue or a concern, he was quick to take action and help us come to a resolution. I never had an issue reaching Luis via phone or email. He was always very responsive and went out of his way to ensure every detail was taken care of. He provided valuable advice to my husband and I which was much appreciated as we navigated unfamiliar territory in the home buying process. Throughout our journey, Luis demonstrated great patience and understanding of our situation. He was never pushy, and let us take our time during the home buying process while at the same time providing much needed guidance. Luis even purchased us a gift upon moving into our new home! It was very thoughtful and so appreciated. I also wanted to give a shout out to Donald, another team member who was available to assist if we needed him and attended our closing, he was great! We would highly recommend Luis and the Hal Knopf Team for any of your real estate needs.- Samantha Daniel

5 Stars!!! Cory sold my parent’s home in one weekend! We were so very impressed with her and her team. I am a realtor in another area and have high standards - I knew from the moment I spoke with her that she was the one to get this done. The photos & marketing were incredible. If you are contemplating selling, Corey knows the market VERY well. She was spot on in her pricing of the home.
- Amanda Goldberg

5 stars!!! I have done business with Cory Knopf on numerous buys and sells and she always goes above and beyond. I bought my OS home through Hal Knopf, upgraded and sold it, and upgraded again and sold that one all through Cory. She is a super hard worker who sell your home and help you find the home of your dreams. Now that Hal Knopf is affiliated with Compass, it has only increased the depth and breadth of the business. Cory is the best resource you will find in Oceanside and the surrounding areas, whether buying, selling or researching the area. Cory Knopf is a true professional and a gem of a realtor. I wouldn't think of working with anyone else! - Ann-Marie Pearce

My husband and I had an amazing experience working with Kaitlynn and Luis. Buying a house is stressful but we were buying our first home so the anxiety was through the roof. Kaitlynn and Luis settled our nerves and answered all of our questions. They were attentive, constantly checking in on us throughout the process and super helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better first-time home buying experience :) - Cindy Liang

My husband and I had the BEST experience working with Luis Barreto. He was friendly and honest and will 100% tell it exactly how it is while still being supportive. He was knowledgeable about the market and was able to answer our countless questions throughout the process of buying our first home. Luis moved so fast in order for us to get the house we wanted, he was able to negotiate on our behalf and thanks to him we were able to close on our home in a timely manner. We were so lucky to have worked with him and wish him nothing but the best!! We highly recommend and appreciate the professionalism and dedication he always shows. Anyone who works with him, won’t be disappointed!!! - Kristy Cordero

Not only did we find a home but we also found a friend in Luis. We are very grateful with his team and their services. - Joseph Guerrero

Cory Knopf worked with us to sell our home in Oceanside. Great understanding of the market and how to price the house to get the best return.

I highly recommend her. - Andy Sippel

She goes above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent! - Adam Smith

We were recommended to Hal Knopf by a friend of ours who recently purchased a home with them. To say our experience was amazing is an understatement. We worked with agent Luis Barreto and are truly satisfied with his services. From the moment we met with him he made us feel like family. It always felt as if he had our best interest at heart. He was so helpful every step of the way from his great communication & organizational skills and knowledge about the area. We were so grateful to have had him as our agent and will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor.

Having been born and raised in Oceanside, NY, we moved to Southern CA over 20 years ago. Other family members, also, relocated to Southern, CA, over the years, most recently my mother-in-law. It was at that point, the decision was made to sell my mother-in-laws home. When looking for a Real Estate Agent, I remembered all of my years in Oceanside, NY, the realty firm "Hal Knopf Team of Realtors". Hal Knopf was synonymous with Nathans, a long established restaurant, back then and still there in a smaller footprint, in Oceanside, NY know for frankfurters, hamburgers, fries and seafood. When the decision was made to sell my mother-in-laws home, I contacted them, little known to me at the time, that Hal Knopf passed away several years ago and his daughter, Cory, took over the business. Although I never knew or met Hal, I spoke to Cory, at length. When we spoke, it was like I knew her and the entire family for decades. We reminisced about the area, the people, the restaurants etc. I/we decided to move forward with Cory, without any hesitation, and it was the best decision we made with respect to selling this home.
Cory is:
* Honest
* Straightforward
* Tells it like it is, even though you may not want to hear the truth or the reality
* Gives excellent advice and recommendations
AND
* Has excellent referrals to get things done/accomplished, as needed, at reasonable and fair prices, in an expedited manner.

Cory IS EXCELLENT in being pro-active and not-reactive in a market that is changing daily. You need a realtor that knows how to quickly adjust and pivot accordingly to the continuing changes in the area and globally. Without any question, Cory, from Hal Knopf Team of Realtors at Compass, is by far the best at what she does!

Julie Taub helped us to buy a house in Oceanside. Buying a house doesn’t seem to be easy, but when you rely on people like Julie, it is easy. First of all, we had a wide choice of houses we had been looking for. The closing went smoothly. And afterwards, we also can contact Julie in case we need it. Julie is professional, responsible and responsive. I also appreciate Julie’s personal traits: she is caring, energetic and very kind. Our family is very happy to meet Julie. And I would strongly recommend Julie Taub in case you need to buy a house. I appreciate it. - Ms. Yulduz

Julie did an awesome job in assisting us to get our single family home. She showed great wisdom and expertise in the geographical area. She communicated well and showed great negotiation skills in getting us a house of value. Thank you Julie - rmgrandy77

Cory Knopf and her team are the most professional real estate brokers that we've ever dealt with. Their knowledge, professionalism and attention to details are unsurpassed. Through the years they have helped us buy and sell various properties. We highly recommend Cory Knopf of Hal Knopf realty. - Stellar Doro

We used Cory Knopf to purchase our home. she was amazing, informative and very patient. I had issues with other agents from other companies where they lied and messed me over so I was wary about using a another agent. she reassured me she would be easy and calm to work with. We are very happy we used her and will refer her to friends and family. - Josh Malek

Cathy was really amazing to work with. My husband and I are first time homeowners and Cathy made the process very easy. She's very knowledgeable about each property and helps you understand what to look out for when you're new to real estate. Cathy was so sweet after we bought our home and left us a nice bottle of champagne. She even sent us nice sunflower seeds to plant in our new home. I'd recommend Cathy to any first time home buyer. - Simon Abelau

Cathy was phenomenal in guiding us through our first home buying experience in a very difficult time. She was extremely responsive by phone and email. She is very knowledgeable about the oceanside neighborhood and surrounding towns. She is also very helpful with suggestions from lawyers to landscapers and other contractors. Really couldn't have done gotten a home without her! - Michael Gordover

To work with Julie is to know what it means to have a masterful agent at the height of her game. The perfect blend of friend, truth-teller, and fiduciary, she takes the time to develop a firm understanding of needs and only show you the things that fit the criteria... a talent so sincerely lacking across the Real Estate Agent set. Julie knows waterfront - South Shore Long Island - better than anyone you can find. Whether it's ultra-high end mansion or 'rental for my nanny', she can find you the fit. - Michael H

Julie is extremely knowledgeable about Oceanside and the area and provided us with a lot of guidance along the way. In addition to being highly professional, Julie is also giving support and sharing from her experience on various topics, which is extremely helpful for first-time owners. Julie is responsive, highly trustworthy, and is a real source of information for the inexperienced (and also experienced) buyers in Oceanside. - Soy Atiass

Cory Knopf came recommended to me by a trusted friend and working with her to sell my house was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Cory took all of the worry and stress out of the process and made the experience A+. She is laser focused and supportive. Cory answered all my questions and concerns and my phone calls were either answered or returned super fast. Imagine that ! She answers her phone !!! Cory is the Best, hands down. Warm, friendly, super knowledgeable and completely professional. I would hire Cory and Hal Knopf Realty again in a second, to buy OR sell a home. Thank you Cory. Dreams do come true. :-) - Jacstraw722

You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home. - Bob and Mindy Lawrence
