    Client Testimonials
    ★★★★★
    "Brandon and Janelle are the go to team in Corona Del Mar, Newport Beach and the surrounding communities!! We just closed on our house and there were multiple competing offers. I truly believe we would not have gotten the home if it weren’t for their experience and their relationship with other agents. We couldn’t be happier with the service and the follow up. Highly recommend them!! " - Louis V.

    ★★★★★
    "Engaging The File Group was hands-down the best decision we could have made when searching for our new home. Janelle and Brandon were not only super informative, insightful, patient and willing to roll with us as we figured out what we wanted, but they also made the entire process as simple and streamlined as it could possibly be, from search to offer to negotiation to mortgage application to inspection to closing. And, even after closing, they consistently checked in to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy with our new home. I have regularly and confidently recommended The File Group to my family and friends — all of whom have had glowing reviews of their own. " - Chris B.

    "We worked with Nikki to purchase our home. Nikki was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She did an excellent job negotiating our offer (in a crazy competitive market). And had a really good pulse for what we'd need to get to in order to be considered for getting the house. Once we were under contract, she was great at communicating the timeline in order to set expectations. She checked in with our lender to make sure that everything was set to close on time (which we did! on a 21 day close). She helped us to find inspectors, who were timely and professional. If you're ever looking for an agent who is super responsive and knowledgeable about the market, I highly recommend using Nikki." - Andrew S.

    ★★★★★
    "I couldn't recommend any realtor more than Mike Gaines. He is fantastic and helped my wife and I land our dream home. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Any decent realtor can get a deal done when things go smoothly, but what separates good realtors from great realtors is when you are thrown a curveball and a deal starts to go sideways. We had all sorts of curveballs thrown our way from financing to HOA rules, escrow, etc, On multiple occasions we were certain the deal was going to fall through, and had it not been for Mike, it would have. Mike is an excellent communicator and every time something happened he was able to bring all the relevant parties together to get things back on track and keep the deal alive. In the end, we got our home and couldn't have done it without Mike! So grateful for him and his team! " - Ethan A.

    "If you are looking for an honest, professional, full-service team, look no further. Janelle helped us purchase a home and facilitated a seamless, smooth process going above and beyond for us as we lived out of town. Janelle's previous clients have used her repeatedly for multiple house transactions. We feel so fortunate to have met her as we know she will help us with all of our future housing needs in Orange County." - Josh. F
