uying a house is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life, and who you choose to help you make that purchase is just as important – the right real estate agent can make all the difference whether buying or selling a home. Pasadena Magazine has commissioned Professional Research Services (PRS) to conduct a survey of all Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley brokers and agents, to determine the top agents in the area. Real estate agents who were chosen as “All Stars” had an annual sales volume in the top 2% of all agents in the area, and we are proud to share them with our readers. Inclusion in the Pasadena Magazine Real Estate All-Stars is based solely upon merit; there is not a commercial relationship to the listings and listings cannot be purchased. The right real estate agent can offer you guidance on home values, neighborhoods, and other important factors that may affect your decision. These Real Estate All-Stars know the communities they serve better than anyone, and can help you find the home of your dreams. (Although we reached out to all agencies in the area, Deasy-Penner and Dilbeck declined to participate.)

DOUGLAS ELLIMAN

MONROVIA REAL ESTATE EXPERT

i Over the last year, we have all experienced what it’s like to be “at home.” That means different things for different people. As a Realtor, knowing the right questions to ask can help guide buyers and sellers through what “home” truly represents. I am very proud of my success as a top producer in Monrovia real estate, which I attribute to being tuned in to the wants and needs of my clients. Whether it’s a Craftsman bungalow, a mid-century modern, or newer construction, creating a “home” is the ultimate goal. I work hard to make sure my clients are happy at the end of every closed escrow. Let me know how I can help you find your perfect home! I’m never too busy for all your real estate needs.

+ FREE ADVICE: Do what you love and the money will come! Be passionate about what you do. Do everything in life with a sense of humor!

LAURIE STANFORD TURNER COLDWELL BANKER REALTY SENIORS REAL ESTATE

i Over my many years in real estate I have discovered that seniors face unique challenges when selling a home. For some it’s been decades since they have sold a home. That’s why I invested my time to earn a National Association of Realtors® Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation. Often seniors are on their own, newly widowed or dealing with family member health challenges and find themselves overwhelmed. They need a partner and that’s where I come in. The questions come fast and furious. Where do I start? What do I do with all my belongings? I’ve been in this home for 50 years and I’m downsizing. I can’t take it all with me, and the kids don’t want it. I’ve heard it all and handled it all with empathy, an open ear, hand holding and a team to minimize the stress. Guiding my sellers through the complexities of getting a home ready for sale, going to market and the mountains of paperwork that comes with it gives me so much joy and satisfaction. They are not just my clients but my friends and I take care of them like family. Like my tag line says, I am your key to a successful sale. If you fit this description or know someone who needs my services, reach out to me. I want to help.

+ BEST ADVICE: Make one decision at a time. We’ll get through this together! ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Top 2% of Realtors at Coldwell Banker Realty, Seniors Real Estate Specialist. BUCKET LIST: Learn to fly.
