Client Testimonials

Karrie & Shawn N.

Karrie: Liz never disappoints! She has yet again amazed us and helped us find our way back to our happy place in just ONE WEEKEND! We flew in from Texas and she knew what we wanted and needed. In 24 hours we found the perfect home and it's all thanks to Liz for convincing us to think outside the box and trust her. We did and we are SO excited to start the rest of our lives in our happy place with our babies 💞 She truly goes above and beyond for her clients!

Shawn: Liz will go above and beyond in every way to make sure you find the perfect home. Not being from the area Liz took the time to listen to what my wife and I wanted and found us a property that fit our needs and our budget. Can't say enough about how she made us feel like we were always her number one priority.

Liz is extremely intelligent, a real negotiator! Raised in Laguna so knows the OC better than any other realtor there!

She is someone you will want in your life forever!

Liz Bates is a highly experienced, consummate professional and I could not be more confident in recommending her. When I was a first-time homebuyer, she held my hand through every step of the process and remained completely attentive to all my needs, questions, and apprehensions. When it was time for me to sell, she guided me through that process as well. Liz is the most knowledgeable, resourceful and caring agent I have ever worked with, and her professionalism, extra attention and support are above and beyond anything I've ever experienced when working with other agents now that I live outside of California.

One of the greatest things about Liz is that her kindness, knowledge, and professionalism are constant. She always treats everyone with same respect and kindness.

We are so grateful to have found her and enthusiastically recommend her to all of our colleagues.
