The Franklin Team Client Testimonials

First Time Home Buyer


 

The Franklin Team

 
I am writing this testimonial on behalf of Pat & Phil Franklin. I found myself in a position that I wanted to purchase an entry level home in the North Orange County Area. My parents suggested I contact Pat & Phil and while I didn’t know them personally I knew my parents would only suggest Real Estate Agents that would work hard representing me in my first home purchase.

 

What I found, in working with Pat & Phil, was that they took time in showing me a variety of homes that I could both afford, and were geographically in areas that worked for me. Once I determined to make an offer on a home The Franklin Team walked me through each step of the process. I found them to be both clear in their explanation of the contract and what my obligations would be along the way. 

 

I also found them to be responsive to concerns or clarifications that I needed as we proceeded. They kept in close contact with me and were proactive in anticipating potential issues and addressed them in timely manner.

 

I was able to purchase my home confident that my interests were being well represented by The Franklin Team. I will recommend them to those friends, family and colleagues that are interested in buying or selling residential property.

 

I am happy to recommend Pat & Phil to any potential clients they encounter.

 

Sincerely,

Geoffrey K.



Karen's Forever Home


I am able to recommend Pat and Phil Franklin to be your next Real Estate Agents because of the positive experience I had with them through the whole process of purchasing my current home. They showed me a variety of potential homes until we found the perfect home for me! "The Franklin Team" knew I would need them to explain each step of the process because it was all a new experience for me.

 I always knew that they would be there for me to both protect my interests and educate me in the process. They are patient, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.

If you choose Pat and Phil to represent you in your next real estate transaction you will be with a team that has your best interests in mind. The best way to describe Pat and Phil, are that they are fabulous.
 
Sincerely,

Specialized Marketing


 

Pat and Phil,
Bette and I want to express our gratitude for all the time you spent on site at our property, to get it sold. Open houses seemed to have been our best tool in getting our property sold.  Without your assistance in marketing our home, I fear, we would still own two homes, and all the associated costs.

As first time homebuyers we knew we would need Realtors that would guide us through the process and explain each step of the transaction. We feel fortunate that we selected Pat & Phil Franklin to represent us in what would be one of the most important investments in our lives. We initially thought we would seek out a home in Corona, so we could get more for our money. We were shown numerous properties and finally found, "THE ONE", which allowed us to stay local near family and work.
 
Whenever we had questions we got immediate responses so that we felt they understood how important it was to be educated about all the options available to us. We found Pat & Phil to be organized and prepared to review all the paperwork and timelines that resulted in us getting the home that we will live in and enjoy for the foreseeable future.
 
If you need Realtors that are knowledgeable, great negotiators, responsive, thorough and patient....we recommend Pat & Phil Franklin of "The Franklin Team"!
 
Sincerely,
Vanessa & Donato 


The Franklin Team


Dear Pat and Phil,

Having been through a number of real estate transactions over the past thirty or so years, we felt compelled to write a note of appreciation for the highly professional manner in which our two recent transactions with you were handled.

Every detail was attended to perfectly, nothing was left undone or unsaid, and in each case, we felt that, thanks to your skills, we (actually, our sons) were able to acquire the properties for prices that were more than fair.

Beyond your professionalism, negotiating skills and thoroughness, in each case, you located the perfect property just as it became available, giving us an obvious leg up on others making offers. Again, five star service.

Since our sons are both new to home buying, they may not truly appreciate how lucky they were to work with the two of you. While they were extremely pleased and satisfied in every way, they have no basis of comparison. We do, however, and even the best agents we’ve worked with in the past, did not measure up to The Franklin Team. I am sure both of our sons will continue the relationship, and won’t have to learn the hard way!

All in all, as stressful as home buying can sometimes be, these two transactions were stress-free, fast, and even fun. We appreciate it more than you know. We will happily recommend The Franklin Team to anyone we know looking for a home in Southern California.

Warmest regards,

Giulii and Roger


Awesome Team


Awesome Team!!
 
We got great service from The Franklin Team.  From the open house, to documents that needed to be signed, to termite and home inspection they were always there for us.  What I liked the most from them was the communication.  Personal, face to face communication rather than an automated reminder from a faceless real estate program.... We were always informed of what was going on and the option we had available to us.  ...issue came up with our buyer, that is why you need good agents like Pat and Phil.  They negotiated compensation for us, a daily fee for each day my buyers were past the COE date and we got an advance of $2,500 from the buyer's deposit as a penalty as well.  Pat & Phil fought for us and navigated us thru this turbulent time.

Seaside Home Wanted!


Pat and Phil were ready to hit the ground running when I gave them a call to handle my real estate needs. Not only did I need to sell my condo, I also needed to relocate in a confined period of time. The marketing material and knowledge of my area allowed an unbelievable turn around from start to finish. My first Open House was so successful we received two offers that week. The Franklin Team were always positive and saw that I knew what was happening with documents at all times and their attention to detail saved a major escrow mishap on the buyers side of the deal.

When looking for my new place if I hadn't had Phil and Pat educating me on how a Stock Sale works and all of the many different documents and hoops that needed to be completed, I would have given up and lost the opportunity to buy my seaside retirement home.
 
I highly recommend The Franklin Team for a streamlined, caring and knowledgeable experience. There is no doubt in my opinion that they are the best! 
 
Sincerely,
MKK 
 


Beach Home


Loved working with the Franklin Team to purchase a beach condo of my own!!! It has been my dream to have a shack along the beach in So Cal for over 40 years. I looked and looked and looked and never ended up buying anything, until the Franklin Team came along. Even though they knew my history of endlessly searching for that one particular place and that beach shacks are no longer to be found, they devoted an extraordinary amount of time helping me sort out what I really wanted and what I could afford. Beach shacks were no longer an option, but they found me something even better. A two bedroom, two bath condo, just 75 minutes from my house and just steps to the beautiful beach. They left no stone unturned in the process of purchasing the home and covering all the bases. They kept me aware of what was going on every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend The Franklin Team if you are looking for excellent service from realtors who are extremely knowledgeable and provide the highest quality of service!!

Anaheim Frematic

Smooth Transaction for Out of State Sellers


Pat and Phil were able to help us sell our home in Anaheim in less than one week! They were mindful of the architectural history of the home and conveyed the features of the property well to potential buyers. The home sold in days and above the asking price!

The team approach offered by Pat and Phil allowed for double the coverage and services; which was a true added value.

Communication is so important during the sale process. Pat and Phil were always prompt in answering all our questions and even replied to emails and voicemails on evenings and weekends.
 
Pat and Phil's hard work was appreciated by our family. Thank you to "The Franklin Team" for selling our home so quickly!

1936 Spanish Colonial Revival in South Wrigley


It was time to sell a home I had purchased 45 years ago and used as a rental property for all but the first 3 years. I had not kept up with the market changes and knew I would need some knowledgeable Real Estate Agents to help me!

I was aware of The Franklin Team and even though this property was in Long Beach I wanted to meet up with them to secure their advice. I felt so fortunate to have engaged their services. Pat & Phil compliment each other with their skill sets and real estate knowledge. After researching the recent sales in the area they were able to present the best price point for my property considering its strengths and areas of potential concerns.

I thought I would have to put a substantial amount of money into the property in order to even put it on the market. The Franklin Team gave me guidance and sound advice as to add value to the home without taking on any major projects. Their marketing approach included emphasizing the homes unique history, providing professional photos that highlighted the architecture and many of the appealing features of the property.

The response was quick and offers were presented. Pat & Phil reviewed the strength and weaknesses of each and every offer and once in escrow they gave me regular updates.

Without their guidance I, no doubt, would have spent money on things that would not have added value to the property. They looked after my best interest and were tough negotiators that resulted in an above ask offer and acceptance. Their expertise enabled me to get the property sold in a timely manner that both maximized my profits while minimizing any potential expenses attached to the sale of the home. The Franklin Team was with me every step of the way and made the process so much easier than I could have anticipated.

If you need Real Estate Agents that are experts in their field and place your needs and concerns on the top of their list….I highly recommend Pat & Phil of The Franklin Team!
