Royce D.  -  Lakewood and Torrance

"We have been working with the fabulous team of Manny & Marie Archondo for almost over 5 years now in buying our first condo, selling it and then buying our first SFR. Manny & Marie makes working with them feel less a business and more of an extended long term relationship.
Manny & Marie  worked with us to purchase our first dream condo making the first time experience completely stress free. Manny & Marie were extremely patient working with us as new home-buyers who only had a basic idea of what we wanted. They encouraged us to look at all options and set us up with a program that showed us all residences that were within our price range and in our preferred geographic areas. With Manny & Marie we never felt as if we were missing out on any homes. We sold our Condo with Manny & Marie who once again made the painful process of showings, decorating, negotiations, etc. a painless invisible process we never even felt. We continued to work with the wonderful duo to buy our first SFR and will continue to work with them for any future purchases/sales.
What is even more appealing with Manny & Marie Archondo is their extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles area and its Counties along with the intricacies of first time purchases, FHA, short sales and the different types of real estate transactions that would make my head spin without the proper guidance of Manny & Marie. You couldn't ask for a more detail-oriented and dedicated partnership from start to finish. Any speed bumps along the way due to mortgage loans, contingencies, negotiations, home inspection and delays were smoothed and sorted out by Manny & Marie beyond expectations who assisted us in dealing with all types of real estate dealings. Their extensive knowledge on the best mortgage financiers was the icing on the cake as our mortgage finance application each time was so smooth that we didn't even feel we applied for a loan – all thanks to Manny & Marie. "
I would highly recommend utilizing the services of Manny & Marie Archondo in your buying and/or selling experience. The relation with Manny & Marie does not close when your deal closes but continues on. (Zillow)

Robert C.  -  Rancho Palos Verdes

Manny & Marie Archondo are the best Real Estate agents in the South Bay Area. Their expertise in handling complex real estate is overwhelming. They take great consideration in your personal and real estate needs. They took me to all of the areas that I suggested, even taking us to communities in  Orange County. I have recently worked with them trying to close a real estate purchase where I had previously failed before. Their determination and desire to get me into my dream house was the best that I could ever ask. They were able to work with the selling agent and homeowner to accept my proposal and offer to buy the property that I am in today. They also worked with my lender to process all of the paperwork and escrow papers to make the deal happen even though I came in late to purchase the home. If you want honesty, integrity, and true professional real estate experts I would advise you to use Manny & Marie Ochondo. Sincerely, A Satisfied Home Owner" (Zillow)

R J Linville.  -  Harbor City

"Before choosing a real estate agent, I interviewed 5 firms. I was interested in how they promoted their listings, how the sales price was determined, comps in the area and above all their integrity and honesty with their clients. 
I met with Manny and Marie in my home. I was concerned that my home which was located near railroad tracks and commercial areas would be priced low and difficult to sell. Manny and Marie spent considerable time answering my questions; providing objective data on their sales and sales in the area; describing how they would market my home; and going over the process including a timeline. Manny and Marie made the process easy and understood that I had been in my home for 45 years and needed advise and guidance. Marie provided the staging including bringing in their own props (saving me money) and Manny had professional photographs taken for the listing. I was impressed by the listing and how quickly my home sold. I received 4 offers at asking price or above  in less than a week. Manny and Marie walked me through every step of the closing process and assisted me through all the inspections and decisions. I have recently sent emails to all my friends back home recommending Manny and Marie Archondo and describing the rewarding experience. I can truthfully say that if I ever move back to California, I will contract with them to find me a new home. Thank you Manny and Marie!"

Gloria and Jose Luis - Torrance

"Dear Marie and Manny; I am writing to express our gratitude to you both for giving us the opportunity to experience the best real estate transaction of our lives.  Both my husband Jose Luis and I have purchased properties in the past, however we had not been treated with the courtesy and respect until now.  We appreciated your consistent guidance, and right-on advice during the entire process.  We felt very comfortable because you made us feel cared for by demonstrating that you had our best interest at hand. Manny took the time to personally drive us to every single property, he was very gracious and attentive to our questions.  As you know, this was the first investment property for Jose Luis and me, and I cannot stress enough our appreciation for your assistance with the purchase, but also for working beyond your limits to help us embrace the world of landlords with no reservations whatsoever.  We also appreciate you facilitating a network of contractors who can be trusted to remodel quickly and at reasonable cost.  This by far was the best transaction we’ve ever had.  You both are loyal to your customers and treat them like family.  We trust you wholeheartedly and highly recommend you both to any person looking for a stress-free purchase.  You both have made this entire experience a pleasant stage in our lives." (Zillow)

Jennifer R.- Torrance

 "Thank you, you're the best! I am so thankful for all that you have done for me. You are truly amazing. My property had been on the market, with a previous realtor, for about a year and half. After such time, he basically gave up on selling my soon to be foreclosed property which led me to felling hopeless and lost and I didn't know what to do. A close family told me I had to contact their previous realtors, Manny and Marie. I'm so thankful I made that phone call. I cannot fully describe how much of a weight was taken off my shoulders once I started working with Manny & Marie. Within seven months, they worked their magic and my property successfully went through escrow under a short sale. During the seven months, Manny and Marie kept me updated with new information and continuously walked me through the process(which my previous realtor neglected to do). Manny and Marie both understood my emotional unsettlement. Manny and Marie made a positive change in my life. They earned the trust of my family and myself. Thank you Manny and Marie! You are by far the best realtors in the South Bay!!"

 Maynor and Elisa - Gardena

"The speedy RE/MAX Team - Thank you for helping us make our transition from selling our home and buying our new home in a smooth ride. Your advice and experience working as a team showed from day one, and made everything that we thought to be difficult into something easy. Your professionalism made the difference and it showed right away as soon as the sign for sale was up, the buyers started knocking at the door. One of the many things that we liked the best is that there was always a smile on your face. You also know how to make your clients feel comfortable.

"After a few days of waiting, which seemed like years, we finally obtained what we wished for the most: our own house! With great patience and hope our dream finally came true thanks to God and the help of our realtors Marie and Manny that helped us 100% in every step of the process. My wife is very happy and my three sons, each one in their own bedroom for now and in the future each one in their house. (three in a lot property). There are no words that can express how thankful we are to God and to this precious couple that helped us make our dream come true. I would recommend them to any one that is dreaming big, too. Thank you. "

We're a very satisfied and thankful client. "

"We put our property in the market twice before meeting Manny & Marie with other agents. I got recommend by them from a co-worker who loved the experience of working with them. I was hesitant at first but later understood why my property did not sell. They helped me to take care of all the problems and I was very surprised that it sold quickly. Sometime it is the agent that makes the difference. I was able to sell it for more than what I thought. How grateful do you think I feel? Wow!"

”At this time I can say that the process of finding my new home was easy and smooth but the hard thing was in finding people like Manny & Marie that not only listen and understood us but also know what they are doing!"

 Elizabeth B.- Carson

" The pledge for Manny and Marie to be the 'Real Estate Leaders' has been completely fulfilled in my case. I went through a bitter divorce and I had to sell my house. The expeditious sale, having the initial asking price and the easy of the process through one of the most difficult time in my life, I could not ask for any other Realtors. Due to their negotiation skills, detail to excellence, professionalism and taking care of serious business, I feel, they were there to take care of me when I sold my home and needed someone to help me. There are no other realtors for me. "

Yesenia L. - Long Beach
"Amazing team, always available, answered all my questions, took their time to go over details, and were very helpful in finging a home. I will definetely work with them again." (Yelp)
