Holly is an amazing realtor. My wife and I can truly say that she started as our realtor, and now is a great friend. We took awhile to find our home, in a perfect neighborhood, with 'life' happening at the same time (my wife was pregnant with our first child, jobs, other responsibilities, etc.). Holly was more than accomodating to our schedules, and would meet with us when convenient for us, and show us homes when we had time. Aftr a lengthy search we found a great home, in a great neighborhood. Then her magic kicked in. She's an expert negotiator, never refusing any "ask" we had; andfought both tooth and nail to get us exactly what we wanted, and how we wanted it. I could serioously go on and on about how Holly represented us. I would have no reservations recommending Holly to anyone, whether you're a first time buyer, or a seasoned investor. We love you Holly!!
Susan provided excellent guidance every step of the way during a complicated transaction. We appreciate everything she did!
Gary Elminoufi represented my wife and me in the selling our Manhattan Beach home. Gary's confident and professional attitude put us both at ease knowing that we had the right guy for the job. From listing to advertising and finally selling our home, Gary helped us through the entire process with great efficiency.
"Throughout the whole process, Gino has really felt like a friend. He was always available and very prompt to all matters and situations." The service we received from Gino Skulick was exceptional! This was our first time purchasing a multi-unit income property. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. Gino's experience and patience served us well. His knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and he most certainly able to do more than the average agent. Throughout the whole process Gino has felt like a friend. He is always available and very prompt to all matters and situations. We especially appreciated the dedication and hard work negotiating the purchase, finding a good lender, securing all the inspections, and taking the time to go over all the details of with the counter-offers. Gino always maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, patience, understanding and diplomacy. In addition, after the purchase was completed, he has maintained communications with us and helped us change the title into our LLC without hesitancy. We would recommend Gino to any person who is looking to buy or sell.
Thank you Tony for all of your help, support, and guidance during our move to Manhattan Beach! We are so happy to be part of the South Bay community and so thankful we were able to work with you! All the best - Bill and Courtney
Susan handled my lease transaction in Manhattan Beach and I will definitely use her again. She handled the whole process without even having to get together. She even handled the installation of a new garage motor when it broke and handled getting a handyman to the home as well as house cleaners. Susan went above and beyond!
Tony helped us find a rental in South Redondo, while we were in between houses, and then helped us purchase our dream home in Rolling Hills Estates. If we ever decide to sell our home (maybe in 20 years after the kids have gone off to college), we plan to use him! Once you find the RIGHT realtor, no one else will do. Tony has a rare combination of understanding of the buyers process, financial knowledge and, most importantly, kindness. He sat with us well ahead of our planned purchase timeline to get a thorough understanding of what we wanted, and even helped my husband and me come to terms with some of the nuances of our situation and our slightly disparate wants and needs. Tony is a firm believer that whatever is supposed to happen will happen, as long as you are willing to do the work (and willing to get the right people in your corner, to do most of the work for you). He helped us feel comfortable waiting until the PERFECT house came along, and then helped us get the house of our dreams. We never felt pressured, always felt heard, and his patience and perspective balanced us out. He also has amazing contacts, and put us in touch with our mortgage broker. Between Tony and our mortgage broker, the process was so much easier than the purchase and sale of our previous home. It is impossible to overstate how valuable Tony was to the purchase of what we call our Forever Home. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to feel empowered to wait for and find exactly what they want, while leaving the details and execution to the expert! Thanks so much Tony for helping us to achieve our dream! Margret and Mike
Gary Elminoufi is without a doubt the most hard working agent we have ever worked with. He is professional, responsive to the needs of the transaction, extremely aware of the beach markets and assists in every aspect of bringing the buyer and seller together. We are proud to say he has represented us in many transactions. Thank you Gary for making it all happen!
"Florida...3 hours ahead, he pulled off the road...wrote up the offer, emailed me for review, DocuSign sent and delivered to Listing Agent by COB that day. Who does that!?" We engaged Gino Skulick on a Sunday afternoon--a day he happened to be leaving on vacation. Gino decided to drive back to Los Angeles to preview another property then return to the desert soon after. He was stuck in traffic when I phoned him to discuss making an offer on the Manhattan Beach property we were interested in. I happened to be in Florida--three hours ahead on time. Gino feared he would not make it back to his resort in time to execute the offer-- so he pulled of the road, found a FedX Office Store and spent four hours working with me on the details of the offer. He emailed me for review, made- adjustments and sent the final version via DocuSign. He delivered to the Listing Agent as promised by close of business (COB) his time that same day. Who does that!? Needless to say I was very impressed and was very appreciative that Gino went out of his way to get the offer done that day.
Susan's expertise and experience in South Bay real estate made our transaction enjoyable and now we have not only a life-long realtor but friend as well!
Gary helped me purchase my very first home. I was able to purchase MY home on my own because of the expertise and commitment of Gary. He was patient and supportive and "talked me thru" the tough times. He then assisted me with the sale of the home that I co-owned with my ex-husband. That sale was quick and painless for me and my ex. I highly recommend Gary and his team for anyone who is in the market for buying or selling a home!
"Gino demonstrated a profound understanding of the local market, was responsive to our needs, the type of advocate and representative we wanted." We immediately liked Gino's professional and non-invasive personality. My husband and I really appreciated Gino's honesty and respectful demeanor. Gino demonstrated a profound understanding of the local market, was responsive to our needs and accommodating to our desires. My husband and I are both lawyers and Gino understood we negotiate for a living. He did a much better job than either of us could have done on our own and managed to keep us sane during the process, quite a difficult task. While he was always calm and professional, he was exactly the type of advocate and representative we wanted at every step in the process.
“Honest and reliable agent! Super professional with impressive negotiation skills and sensitive to the client's needs. He really understands the market and has a practical approach to any situation of the process. I've been working with many other agents and I was really impressive by his expertise ( at the beginning I thought he was too young and may not have too much of the expertise) He advise us throughout the process and we got the property that we needed. We'll surely keep him in mind for our future transactions and also refer him to our relatives and friends.”
Gary is by far the best agent I have ever worked with. He is attentive and professional. He does not apply any pressure and definately understands what his client is looking for. He has lived in the area his whole life. He knows the up's, down's, in's and out's. I have, and will continue to recommend him to all of my fellow investors. He helped me close two multi-unit properties in a little over 6 months
We had a great experience with Gary while purchasing our first home. We found him to be extremely knowledgable about creative financing and he helped us to stay comfortable and calm throughout the negotiations and escrow process. We will definitely be calling him again when we want to sell our home. Thank you Gary! We love our home!
“Pol is one of the best realtors in the region, no questions about it. He is extremely responsive and willing to help in every way so you can ask as many questions as you want! If you are a new buyer, he'll take the extra time to guide you through the entire purchasing process. The best part about working with Pol is his honesty and sincerity which helped me become comfortable in the convoluted world of real estate.”
Gary's knowledge of the area and his many local connections provide his clients with an advantage over others. He's very responsive, trustworthy, and we always felt confident in Gary's advice and direction while going through a home buying and selling process that is usually very stressful on most of us. Great overall experience!
Pol (and all of TeamSkulick) were fantastic throughout the whole process. Very knowledgeable and someone you can wholeheartedly trust and rely on. He was in constant communication through every step and was very direct and action oriented. I always felt he had our best interests at heart. Couldn't recommend more.”
Nick, we wanted to thank you for helping us in our search, it was not as easy as I remembered it years ago. You are very professional and a great asset to your industry.
“I was in need of a professional realtor to assist me in the sale of my mom’s house that was held in a trust. As the successor trustee, I was referred to John Skulick to help me with this task. John was knowledgeable as well as attentive to these special needs. He was extremely responsive to my many questions and returned all my calls in a prompt and professional many. Working with John and his associates was surprisingly pleasant, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is need of a local realtor.”
“John and the Team Skulick have decades of experience in the south bay. As a local native John’s deep lifelong relationships and knowledge of the area are huge plusses. Whenever a service or assistance with supplies, repairs or maintenance were needed, John Skulick had vendors at his fingertips and came through with lightning speed. Great communication all along the process. John kept in close touch even while he was on a trip abroad for family business. Team Skulick is efficient and provided documents in a timely and organized fashion. Docu signing is a dream removing the in-person meetings which are so difficult to schedule these days. Our family home of 63 years sold and closed in less than 2 months for a reasonable price. John Skulick is a dedicated and trustworthy professional whose representation of client interests as a top priority.”
"Now that the dust is beginning to settle we wanted to write you a note to thank you for the way you took care of us before, during, and after buying our first house. You both brought so much heart and generosity to everything you did for us and we want you to know how much we appreciate it!"
“Buying and selling property can be very stressful no matter how many times you've been through the process, so it's great to have someone like John Skulick on your side. The two times we've bought and sold in El Segundo, he was quick to answer and explain any and every question, no matter how small. He was always easy to reach and happy to help, and very quick to get back to us. John knows the South Bay so well, and has an amazing support staff who are quick to get whatever needs to be done to fix up or promote the property. Pros who will get problems up to code, photographers who highlight the best features, people to help with the paperwork, and all of them nice to deal with. John's easy-going personality and professionalism not only got the job done smoothly and without "drama," but even made it fun and memorable both times. We can't recommend him enough.”
Holly exceeded our expectations by selling our home in under 48 hours with multiple offers and setting a new record sale price in North Redondo Beach!
My husband and I were so stressed out after selling our house and moving to the Southbay. Luckily we met Gina because she came right in, helped us get the house we needed, and made everything so easy! She handled everything with grace and a smile!! I'd recommend her as a realtor and a friend all day! Love love love her and you will as well!
Your professionalism and personal attention all through the listing and selling process were so greatly appreciated. You always knew who to contact to get what we needed and your calm, steady, manner was just the greatest asset during the bidding and negotiations.
Holly was amazing! I have lived in many places and worked with many realtors. Holly is by far one of the best!
I couldn't be more grateful to have Gina as my Agent. She provided invaluable advice and insight at every single step of the process. She's deeply knowledgeable about all parts of the home buying process (and even many tangentially related topics) and cares greatly about putting her clients in the very best situation that she can. Gina was incredibly attentive and sympathetic to my buying needs at every stage and went above and beyond to make herself available whenever I needed her. Additionally, she was very responsive to emails, phone calls, and texts no matter how simple the question or task and no matter what time of day. Although I was looking for a property in a highly competitive market for quite some time she never pressured me to buy a place, never lost interest, and was always helpful and patient. On top of being a great Realtor, Gina was a lot of fun to work with and kept the long process light and amusing.
Carl and Arda are a dynamic duo! The only reason I own my house today is because THEY were my real estate agents. I could not write a higher recommendation for the services they provide - as a first time homebuyer, they counseled and explained everything to me and could not have been easier to work with despite the obstacles. I am eternally grateful for their dedication and expertise.
Holly was a pleasure to work with! She is impossibly easy to get along with and will work incredibly hard to make sure you and your family get just what you are looking for!
Gina Ladinig is a true professional that is an asset to clients and an all around great Realtor. Her dedication to the profession is a step above other agents. Gina's knowledge of the communities she serves, professional standards, and risk management combine to make her the perfect choice for buying, selling or leasing a home. How difficult is it to find someone who is professional, with an extensive knowledge base yet completely down to earth - well, that's Gina and she's so easy to work with as well! I think what makes such a stressful situation, like buying, selling or leasing your home, truly bearable is when you have a trusting and great relationship with your realtor. Gina's calm and upbeat attitude helped the stress stay at bay, she's remarkable at what she does, and I was 100% confident in her ability. She assisted me in getting one of my houses leased in a timely manner to great tenants due to her astute research and follow-up. If you need to sell, buy, or lease a home - you need someone you can trust who has your best interest at heart and you won't find anyone better than Gina. She's a person of great integrity and very humble. You'll love working with her!
Thank you especially for working so hard for us. We know the successful sale of our home was because of your tremendous efforts.
Holly has been an amazing addition to my life and family! She takes care of every little detail for her clients. She not only sold me my first home but also introduced me to my husband in the process! She has become a great friend, and I am so thankful to have her in my life!
Holly is beyond amazing. In addition to her expertise during the transaction, she helped coordinate all the work I needed to do after the close of escrow. From referrals for painters to flooring installation to design guidance. Holly is truly one of a kind!
Holly is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. She is professional, straight forward and really has her clients’ best interests in mind. She also goes out of her way to make the process appear seamless, even though I knew it wasn’t. She garnered us about $50k more than we thought we could get, and sold our house before it was even on the market! She even went as far as helping a good friend of mine find an apartment! I would highly recommend Holly to anyone in the South Bay.
Holly was amazing. The purchase wasn’t a straight forward sale. She helped us find the expert advice we needed to make the right decisions. I lived in many places and worked with many realtors. Holly is by far one of the best!
Holly exceeded our expectations by selling our home in under 48 hours with multiple offers and setting a new record sale price in North Redondo Beach. I would definitely recommend Holly when buying or selling property in the South Bay – she gets it done right and keeps her clients’ best interests as her top priority.
Since the first day we sat down and met with Holly to discuss our real estate goals and dreams, it was clear that she was the perfect choice to represent us. She made selling and buying a home simultaneously as stress-free and smooth as possible. We had consistent 100% faith that Holly would answer our questions, provide advice and represent us with sincere honesty and hardworking determination that only so few people hold. It is the reason that following the closures of our home we know Holly will remain an important friend and part of our lives forever.
I’ve had a great joy working with Holly over the past couple of years. She is truly one of the most remarkable agents and people I’ve ever worked with. Holly cares about her clients’ wellbeing and is very proactive during the course of a transaction which ensures smooth closings. Holly works hard to make sure things are done the right way, creating a seamless and stress-free environment for her sellers and buyers. Her knowledge of our local market gives her a distinct advantage amongst other agents. That knowledge and experience translates into you getting the best price for your home. She is always putting her clients first and treats her colleagues like family. You are in good hands with Holly! I’m grateful to be a part of her team!
Our experience with Holly began with the selling of our South Torrance home. Everything went smoothly and very quickly. Holly’s knowledge base of the local area, thoroughness, and attention to detail made the whole process stress and worry-free. She has incredible vision and foresight which enabled us to make simple modifications to our home making it even more desirable. Holly is the eternal visionary and she effortlessly (or seemingly so) guided us through the entire process. She made us feel like family and like we were her only client. We highly recommend her for your next real estate transaction. She is truly the BEST realtor in the South Bay Area!!
Holly Kauffman was a pleasure to work with! You start out working together in a business relationship but end up in a friendship. She is impossibly easy to get along with and will work incredibly hard to make sure you and your family get just what you are looking for.
Holly is a true professional, and for the sale of our home, she prepared us by coming up with a realistic timeframe, giving us detailed market analysis of comparable home sales in our neighborhood to establish an asking price, and prioritized what we needed to do to get the best sales price, from interior paint to helping stage the home. Holly walked us through the entire process with compassion and calmness and made our experience a pleasant one. Holly is the only South Bay/Beach Cities realtor we go to and recommend her without reservation!
Holly sold our house and found our family the perfect home. She was very patient and respectful when listing our house and guided us to maximize its potential. When in search for our home, Holly listened to our wishes and proactively searched to ensure nothing slipped by. House hunting is never an easy process and doing so with newborn twins had its own challenges. From making convenient meetings to lending a helping hand while walking through potential houses, Holly went above and beyond to make sure we found the perfect fit. Communication is one of her strong suits and it was very helpful in this fast-paced, competitive market. Holly is honest and very prompt with responses. She truly gave us confidence throughout the entire process. Holly put so much heart into the job to ensure our family found the perfect home!
