I was so lucky to find Anne Marie Reggie when it was time to sell my condo in Long Beach and purchase a home In Lakewood. She handled both transactions very smoothly and was always available with answers to my questions. I know from personal experience that that is not always the case. I found her to be strategic, tenacious and committed to helping me achieve my goals.
For example, when we listed my condo, we had a buyer all set to purchase my condo. But halfway through the transaction we found out she was unable to secure a loan. (Shame on her agent). Anne Marie worked tirelessly, calling in favors and working the phone constantly trying to get a loan for her to save my deal. It was not to be. She then put in extra time and effort to find a new buyer. Happily, that transaction was completed without a hitch (at least from what she revealed to me).
Then when it came time to buy, I fell in love with a home in Lakewood. Anne Marie also knew the minute we walked in that it was perfect for me, and said she would do everything she could to make sure I got this house. I had been overbid on a couple of other properties, and was nervous about losing out on this one, so wanted to offer full price. Anne Marie worked her magic not only got me the house, but I got it for $5000 less than asking price! She developed a good rapport with the listing agent, so the rest of the deal went really smoothly.
Anne Marie is a total professional. She knows the real estate business inside and out, and she remains committed to her clients even after the deal is closed. She has a large referral network of contractors and resources she can offer us, and is constantly keeping up with and sharing information that may be pertinent to buyers, sellers and people who already own their home. She has always been available to me to answer questions or lend an ear. I trust her to have my back. Her intelligence, positive attitude, amazing memory, and patience make her an extraordinary agent and, I might add now, a friend.
I promise you will be very happy having Anne Marie as your agent! -Debbie T
"Anne Marie Reggie helped us find our first investment property. Her energy and experience is what sold her as an agent for my wife and I. Her ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously is nothing short of impressive. She has a team that she works with on an ongoing basis, from the lenders to the inspectors she professionally manages these people efficiency to get your properties closed. I'm not sure if all agents work this way but she would answer texts from me at all hours of the day or night. Her mind seems to always be on the deal. Checking and re-checking and reporting back her findings. I have heard buying and selling homes is painful and a frustrating experience but to be honest it was one of the most pleasurable and unobtrusive experiences. I know she did much of the heavy lifting on her end and she gave us digestible bits of information, but it seems effortless for her or at least that was the persona she gave to calm my high intensity, needing all the answers personally . I wish I could tell you we had an easy process. Our sellers was the City of Santa Ana, and if you ever have purchased property from a city you know what I mean when I say redundancy is an understatement. Sometimes I felt like we had 4 deals going at once, because of all the extra paperwork and because of timing and decision makers having timing windows once a month to give us answers, a simple deal grew into a beast. We purchased a dual zoned work live loft in the heart of the Artist Village in downtown Santa Ana. AM, we love our loft and the area!! We will use her again and again because we got the opportunity to see her in action, and we're impressed with her results. Hands down one of the hardest working people in the real estate industry. Thank you, Anne Marie!"

"Anne Marie did an outstanding job selling my condo. I initially signed with an independent agent who was willing to work at a reduced commission. At first, this was appealing to me; however, it soon became apparent she was not worth the bargain price. After my contract expired, I hired Anne Marie; she is the epitome of a full-service professional. She answered all my questions & was interested in my input. She has a great personality & strong marketing skills, which I account for my success in selling my property. It was definitely a pleasure working with her & I would definitely use her services in the future."

"I found Anne Marie in 2005 while looking for a realtor in the Long Beach area. Since then she has been my real estate agent for 5 real estate transactions...and soon to be 6 (literally). She has helped us sell homes as the listing agent and buy homes as the buyer's agent and is without a doubt a go-to realtor - to the point I have referred her to my family members. We sincerely trust her handling of the entire purchase or sale process - from start to finish - and have true confidence that she is looking out for my family's best interest. She is savvy in her negotiations and has an impressive Rolodex of contacts (from electricians to termite inspectors to mortgage brokers) that is critical to solving issues when you are trying to close escrow. She is a definite out-of-the box thinker which has helped us numerous times to find a solution to a problem. In addition, she is very tech-knowledgeable which for me is important since there are so many conversations and issues that pop up in just searching for the right home or buyer. For instance, 8 years ago she introduced me to Docusign (software that allows you to sign legal documents on your smartphone or laptop) to sign property documents which was way ahead of the curve and saved me hours of time. Ironically, I use Docusign for my business today. Lastly, she has always been very patient when I have had to make a decision about a property, which speaks volumes to her approach. For instance, we recently moved into escrow for a new home after looking at 60-70 homes in the past 60 days and falling out of escrow on 2 other homes. Anne Marie has never pressured me to make a decision and is constantly looking at alternatives to make sure we have all the information and comparisons we need to make the right decision for us. We are grateful for all of Anne Marie's help." - Michael C.
"Anne Marie has been the only agent I trusted to both sell and buy a property for us in Alamitos Heights. She pays careful attention to your needs (economics, location, schools, etc..) and puts you at ease with the most important purchase of your life. She is very patient and readily available while you go through the process and is wonderful at expediting everything. Both times all negotiations and paperwork went smoothly. She works very hard to get you what you want. She found for us the house of our dreams and we couldn't be happier !! (Even in a bidding war, she won!)" - Magdalena S.
"This is the 4th home Anne Marie has helped us buy and sell, and she is the best!! She makes sure everything is taken care of while keeping in constant contact along the way. She knows Long Beach so well you'd think she's lived here her whole life. We cannot say enough about how pleased we always are with Anne Marie and her team." - Morgan and Brian
"Anne Marie is the BEST! We were selling the home in a different area that we'd raised our family in, and relocating to a smaller home in Long Beach, so it was a major move for us. She made it so easy for us. She helped us out even on a major holiday! My wife and I will always turn to her for real estate help." - Dr. John B.
"Anne Marie handled both the sale of our house in Belmont Shore & found the perfect house for us in Belmont Heights. From a seller's standpoint, she priced it well, had great stagers & it sold in no time! From a buyer's perspective, she found us a house in an area we weren't initially looking at & helped us jump through lots of hoops to get it. She even managed our movers as we were on vacation the week the houses closed. If you are looking for the whole package, you can't go wrong with Anne Marie."- Leslie A
