"I recently completed the purchase of a multifamily property in San Diego with the help of Twana Rasoul. From the beginning to the end, Twana was there to guide me through every step of the process. As a first-time homebuyer, I had a ton of questions, which Twana was able to answer patiently, promptly and in detail. He is one of the best communicators I know, not only using different methods of communication effectively and being timely, but also always ensuring that I fully understood what was occurring and that I felt comfortable with my decisions. He also has a great sense of humor! Thanks to Twana's strategic and negotiating skills, I was able to secure a property on my second offer! I never expected this to occur in this hot hot seller's market! I would highly recommend Twana to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in the San Diego market. In addition to his expertise in investing in multifamily properties, Twana can structure a winning offer (that will stand out) for any buyer using his experience and strategy. He will also negotiate very effectively on behalf of his clients, a skill that separates the very best realtors (such as Twana) with the rest of the pack. To reiterate, I enthusiastically recommend Twana to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the San Diego area. He is more than just a real estate agent and investor. Twana is also a mentor and a friend." - Ricky
"Twana has been an exceptional agent. As a first-time home buyer and beginner investor, I was trapped in the analysis paralysis phase that we all I have before starting our journey. Twana has been extremely helpful every step of the way.
Originally, I was stuck in a position where I eagerly wanted to start real estate investing purchase a rental property. But I also needed a place to live and to get out of renting. I live in San Diego and with the prices here and only so much available capital, l I was considering buying a SFH and using the remaining capital to look into out of state investing. I had considered house hacking before but I just couldn't find a nice multi-family property in San Diego that is in a good area. I have a wife and expecting a child and needed somewhere that they could feel safe. And that's where Twana showed me that it was possible. He revealed to me how is currently house hacking a duplex in San Diego and that he also had a family so a safe location was important to him. This was how I knew that he understood what I was looking for since we shared similar familial living situations. From there he sent me multiple listings of properties that would fit my category and was quick and efficient with all of my requests.
We eventually put an offer for a duplex in an area that had huge potential growth in SD. It was my first time going through an offer and he guided me and explained everything throughout the whole process. The first offer eventually didn't fall through, we both didn't like the direction the seller was going with their counters. So, we called it quits on that one and decided to move on. Just as we moved on from the first offer, he instantly sent me a listing that just popped onto the market that very same day. This listing was an even better opportunity than the first one and we were able to move quickly and have them accept our offer before they even got to their weekend showings. In this hot sellers’ market, it was amazing that we did not have to get into a bidding war with other buyers. Throughout the escrow process Twana has been responsive and informative on the whole process. He was able to negotiate for us and get the seller to agree to the whole request for seller credits to fix up a few minor things on the property. We were able to close on our property in a little under 3 weeks and are excited to get started on making this property both our first home and investment property." - Vinh
"Thank you Twana for everything that you've done for me these last few months. I am lucky to have found Twana on BiggerPockets, and he has helped me successfully close on my first ever property, a duplex that I plan to house hack in.
From the very first phone call until the keys were handed over, Twana was incredibly knowledgeable, savvy, responsive, patient, and all around an excellent resource to ask questions and raise concerns to. He also is a go getter, takes the initiative, and acts quickly and with finesse in critical moments, especially in a hot market like San Diego.
As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what to expect. I literally had no clue on how to find a good investment property, what neighborhoods to look in, how to structure an offer and negotiate, how to fund deals, how to close on a property, and more. The questions were endless, but Twana always patiently answered my questions and was encouraging throughout the whole process. I learned so much just from working with him and attending webinars hosted by his team, and am grateful for the knowledge and experience I gained by going through this process.
I really appreciate everything that Twana has done for me, and look forward to working with him again in the future!" - Cathy
"Twana has incredible market knowledge and understood that I was looking for a multi-family. He has experience house hacking himself, so he was truly the perfect agent for us. This was our first home purchase, so I had a lot of questions that he responded to promptly. I would analyze deals and run them by Twana to ensure I wasn’t missing something or things to be aware of moving forward. We put in roughly 9 offers in one month and he was spot on for each of them. When closing on our property, he had critical insight to negotiate appropriately that led to both parties being happy with the end result. It was a big bonus that he has experience with VA loans and a suggested lender with great rates. I have no doubt that Twana can help any homebuyer and I would recommend him to my family and friends." - Jordan B.
"Finding Twana was easily one of the best things to ever happen for my future. I can't thank Twana enough for helping us find our first investment property and helping us become homeowners. Not only was it easy working with him, but he took the time to explain things to us when it seemed like we had a million questions and things going on. In just under 2 months we found an amazing property, put in an offer, closed and moved into our new place before Christmas.
As newcomers when it comes to real estate investing, Twana made sure to show us the numbers and help us understand our investment from putting in the offer to 30 years down the road.
I appreciate Twana's helpfulness, his winning attitude and his unwavering knowledge for the real estate world. I look forward to working with Twana on our next investments!" - Raquel M.
