"As our realtor in helping me and my wife find our beautiful first home, Wendy Gladson was absolutely phenomenal. Initially, the home-buying process seemed incredibly overwhelming until we connected with Wendy, who enthusiastically guided us through each step of the process. Her expertise, professionalism and familiarity in the South Bay real estate field was immediately apparent, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her (and always looked forward to our next in-person meeting/viewing with her)! Her tenacity, research and ingenuity allowed us to make a very attractive offer on our dream house, which was immediately accepted. Wendy is attentive, personable, patient and energetic (not to mention hilarious); additionally, she seamlessly integrated her contacts/colleagues from both the financing and contractor sides of the industry to provide us with a very well-rounded real estate team. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs a knowledgeable and experienced realtor to help make the home-buying process both manageable and very enjoyable!" - Ryan Farr
"Wendy is fantastic!! My wife and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the LA area. My wife and I sold our condo in Playa Del Rey and Wendy was come up with an effective pricing strategy that secured multiple offers allowing us to sell for well over asking. She's got years of experience and a personal touch that is hard to find. She even let us borrow a few decorations from her own home to stage our place! Couldn't ask for a nicer, smarter, more responsive agent." - Andrew and Sujata Wiese
"Wendy is awesome. She handled everything from start to finish including acting as my therapist in making one of the major decisions in our lives. She helped us stage our place for an open house and received offers over asking two days later. She also found us our new place which I hadn't even seen on the web. We absolutely love our new neighborhood, in a great school district with a bunch of kids that our son can play with. Along with handling the big things, she also takes care of all the little things and answers questions you didn't even know you had. She handles all the paper work so you're only dealing with one person. She is prompt, timely and best of all just a great person that has your best interest in mind." - Erick and Monica Bartolome
