WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS!!!! We would love to share their stories with you!
What we thought would be a difficult sale was made easy by this amazing husband and wife team! Willie and Anna recommended us to take on some home project which they said would net us more money... they found a buyer for our house within 10 days and were able to secure our new home within 15 days!! What we loved is how they kept our nerves calmed by consistently updating us through phone calls, emails and texts! My wife and kids are Super Happy in our new home sweet home!!

Happy, Happy Home Buyers!! We were first time home buyers and didn't have a clue about the buying process. We found Willie on Yelp and decided to call him. He immediately sent us a library of educational video that dealt with the entire buying process. We meet with him and his wife Anna and they walked us through the process. We had our down payment, but didn't have enough money for what is called closing cost, Willie worked it out to where the seller was able to help us with the closing cost!! This was something I had never heard of, all I can say is this team really went out of their way to help us! They truly listened to our concerns and most importantly they truly cared...

What an amazing husband and wife team! Thank you Willie and Anna for helping us with our home purchase. We were first time home buyers and nervous about selecting the right agent. We had interviewed a few agents and all they wanted to do was take us to view houses, never really asking us what our needs were. The Garcia team sent us a library of videos that they personally created which walked us through the entire purchasing process. They took the time to educate us on the entire process and most importantly they truly, truly cared. We highly recommend this team, what a blessing!

Willie and Anna are the best hands down! The most genuine people you would ever meet. They know the right questions to find out what their clients want. Most agents just want to sell you any house and make a commission. Willie and Anna keep in mind what you want. What your dream house is AND THEY FIND IT! Not only do they find it, they make the process so easy and stress free. We are always referring them to our family and friends!
They found us our house and we love it! The process was smooth and they kept us in the loop about everything going on. We've been in our house for 8 years and never want to leave! Thank you Anna & Willie!

My husband and I were looking for a real estate investment property and we were referred to Willie & Anna by a friend. The home that we wanted to purchase was a short sale and it was tenant occupied. Once the escrow closed the tenants did not want to leave voluntarily. Willie & Anna did not waste any time waiting for the tenants to vacate the house, they immediately called an eviction company to assist us with the removal of the tenants. They even scheduled a cleaning company to go in and trash out the home after the tenant's finally left. This situation could have turned out to be a nightmare, but thanks to The Garcia Team it turned out pretty smooth. This was by far a great real estate investment for us and we were glad to know that we had a knowledgeable and fast moving team on our side. We can't wait to work with Team Garcia again in the future!

Left a before hours message for the firm and Will called back very quickly. He was extremely helpful in answering all questions and went out of his way in explaining the intricacies of escrow.

I want to thank Anna, Willie and the entire Garcia team for assisting my mother and I through a real estate transaction. From the first phone call, I could tell we were in the right hands. Their market knowledge, fast response times, initiative and real estate skills are the best I have worked with. They produced a comprehensive plan that sold the property at top dollar in a very short amount of time. Although our transaction was in East LA, I now know they cover all Los Angeles county. This is the go to team when it comes to real estate.
Oscar C. - Whittier
If you want reliable and fast acting real estate agents then The Garcia Team is for you. I am glad I called them to sell my house and to buy another property. The moment I called them the next day they came to talked to us. Willie and Anna they make you feel like Family. They knew what I wanted in my next property I was very picky and they delivered. Thank you Garcia Team for everything.
Rosalba M. - Downey
I could write 10 pages telling you about all the in's and out's that had to be done in order to sell our "unique" home in Whittier. But they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here two thousand words worth of evidence. In these pics, see Willie Garcia clipping our tree branches and cleaning our back yard to make DARN sure that the parents of the potential buyers will LOVE the house, at a least minute, impromptu showing. This was taken around 7-7:30AM on a Saturday morning in time for a 9:00 showing. That's how far Willie and Anna of "The Garcia Team" will go to make sure that whatever needs to be done... they will get it done or they will do it themselves. My husband and I could not be happier with their strong work ethics, how fast they got us 2 buyers and how smoothly everything went. IF YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR HOME QUICKLY AND GET TOP $ FOR IT, "The Garcia" team is your best bet!
Marti A. - Whittier
Willy and Anna did a phenomenal job selling our family's home! Not only did they bring us multiple offers, but their professional experience made a huge difference when it came to negotiating and closing our contract. They both have such positive and upbeat personalities; Willy and Anna made the entire process a positive one. The Garcia Team delivers everything they promise and more!
Isabella A. - Whittier
My husband and I stumbled across Willie and Anna Garcia when we were browsing homes online from the comfort of our home in Toronto. We were planning an international move, and trying to get a feel for Whittier. We had no idea how much we would need them! In every respect, Willie and Anna went above and beyond what would be expected of a realtor helping a client find their dream home. They cleared their schedule to take us around when we flew in for our first trip to scope out properties, treated us to lunch, and led us to the neighborhood we fell in love with. Friends told us that we didn't need a realtor and we could just find a home on our own online. They could not have been more mistaken. To begin with, even with the help of Google Earth, we couldn't get an accurate feel for the neighborhoods where we liking the listings we saw. It was only after meeting and talking with the Garcia team that we were able to narrow our scope from "Whittier, Downey, and La Mirada" to "East Whittier", and from there, to an even more specific neighborhood. They took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for, and after exhausting all the options we had selected on our own, they took us to a property that had not yet been listed. It has a magical backyard, two separate units, and everything we could ask for in a home. My husband and I are ecstatic!
None of this would have been possible without these two, though. We encountered unique challenges because of our recent immigration, including lack of established credit in America. Willie and Anna were able to connect us to the right broker to improve our situation and build credit quickly to become pre-qualified. The home we purchased is in need of repairs, and Willie has been more than generous with his time in guiding us through the process of discerning how to approach this project. With his background knowledge in construction and his keen eye for detail, he was able to give us invaluable and honest information at every single home we visited. On top of all that, they were easy to communicate with via phone and email; they answered all our questions (we've had many!) and then some, offering us helpful food for thought as we budget and plan for our renovations. They have truly been a blessing from God.
Willie and Anna are honest, kind, and not remotely pushy. Realtors often get a bad rap, but these two are straightforward and humble people who genuinely want to help people find a (beautiful!) place to call home. I cannot express how thankful my husband and I are that our paths crossed with them because we are certain that we would not have received the same kind of attention and care with anyone else. We are so grateful for their guidance, and ultimately for helping us find a home that is even more than we dared to imagine. I would recommend them without the slightest reservation to anyone who is looking to make a move.
Jon & Lindsey- Whittier
Man o man where do I begin? My wife and I had been working with another agent for about a year with no luck. Dozens of viewings and at least a dozen offers actually made and no luck. a family friend suggested I call Willie and I took it on a flyer and made the call. To say they are awesome is an understatement, we had a meeting with them went over the basics and we ended up making an offer on the second house they showed us. It was overpriced so we wanted to go in lower and that's exactly the same advice the Garcia Team had. Our offer was accepted and were closing this week! There were some issues with the house but Willie coordinated all the work with the sellers agent and it was all taken care of by the sellers and with very little stress on our plate. All in all the Garcia Team is great. Flexible on hours, willing to accommodate your schedule and they know how to make the selling agents get the work done right and on time! Highly recommended!!!!!
Marcus & Gayane F. - Whittier
We would like to thank Willie and Anna for assisting our parents with the sale of their home. We interviewed several real estate agents, but felt very comfortable with the Garcia Team. They suggested that we take on a few house projects to get our house in selling condition. Willie pointed us in the right direction and also recommended great contractors. This couple is amazing, they were able to help our parents walk away with more money than what the other agents had suggested. My father is grateful that he was able to walk away with more retirement money. We highly recommend "The Garcia Team"
Countney G. - Whittier
We are so blessed to have found Willie and Anna on Yelp. We had registered on a real estate website to search for an agent for our home sale, but what we got was a bunch of calls from agents who didn't really seem to care about our needs, they just wanted to list our house. Willie met with us first at his office and walked us through the entire selling process and really listened to our needs. Our sale was a bit complicated, but the Garcia team handled all aspects of our situation. Thank you Garcia Team for helping us and our parents!!
Vanessa L. - La Habra
We found the Garcia team on Yelp; they are a great husband and wife team! We were first time home buyer and had no clue on how to buy a house and very nervous! Willie suggested that we come to their office for a buyer consultation so that they could explain the buying process. They walked us through the entire buying process including the loan process and made us feel comfortable and put us at ease. I have to mention that this team was able to have the seller of the home we purchased help us out with some of the closing cost expense (happy, happy, happy) We are now proud homeowners and really wanted to share our story... We recommend that you reach out and interview this team if you are looking to buy a house, you will not regret it!!
Gaby R. - Whittier
Escrow is about to close and I can't say enough good things about working with Willie and Anna Garcia. After interviewing several real estate agents, my sister and I chose The Garcia Team to sell our parents' home. Willie gave us very practical suggestions about what work we needed to do to get the house ready and maximize our return. He and Anna marketed as promised resulting in a weekend of Open Houses. We received multiple offers over our asking price within days. Willie and Anna have been helpful, responsive, honest and knowledgeable every step of the way. We are very glad we selected them over the other experienced agents we considered.
Nancy T. - Whittier
Thank you Willie and Anna for assisting us with the purchase of our new home. My husband and I had interviewed a few agents prior to reaching out to you. All the agents seemed to just want to show us houses immediately without asking us what are needs were. We love the fact that you requested for us to have a buyer consultation with you prior to showing us houses. You educated us in regards to the real estate market, you reviewed the entire contract with us and sent us educational videos. Thank you for educating us in regards to the buying process. We felt good about our purchase... Thank you soooo much!
Liz C. - Whittier
We are impressed with the professionalism of Willie & Anna. They used every marketing tool as well as their own sweat equity to sell our property and assisting us into the next. They were always positive and made themselves available for all our questions and concerns. We do not hesitate highly recommending them.
Thank you Willie and Anna, you were very helpful and knowledgeable. We are very happy for all your efforts.
Jolene F. - Whittier
We just sold our house and bought a new one with The Garcia Team, and they have been wonderful every step of the way! My husband wanted to move so we could find a bigger house with more features, but I was reluctant because I liked our neighbors and our neighborhood. Willie gave us a thorough analysis of the local market and encouraged us to act if we were interested. With few homes on the market, I was more concerned about being able to find a good home than selling our old one. Willie assured us that we could find the right house.
We ended up selling our house within less than a month of listing for a good value, but it took a little longer to find a new house. My husband and I had a strict set of criteria, and Willie and Anna showed us a lot of houses and offered good insight and expertise regarding the construction, conditions, and neighborhoods of the homes we saw. We fell in love with a house that was listed as a probate sale and at first we were nervous about probate. They helped negotiate down the price and stayed in touch with us through the whole process, which ended up taking a bit of time and involved balancing the seller's lawyer, the seller's agent, and the buyers of our house.
We're really happy with our new home! As many of the other Yelpers have commented, we found Willie and Anna to be warm and genuine people who are interested in getting to know their clients on a personal level. I really felt like they had our back and we could depend on them during the entire process. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
April B. - Whittier
Willie and Anna helped me during every step of making my lifelong goal of becoming a homeowner a reality. Besides their professionalism, accessibility and their wide breadth of knowledge in this business- they are genuine, trustworthy and make you feel like family! I am extremely grateful for their guidance and for the opportunity to work with The Garcia Team on finding my first home and look forward to working with them again in the near future!
Trini R. - Los Angeles
Before buying our new home I read. I read a lot. From types of loans, to selecting the right agent, I spent time researching and making sure I would hit this process "out of the park"! Before I selected an agent I interviewed. I started with the agents who marketed the most in Whittier (we all see their signs driving through any major intersection). I had three criteria to base my decision: 1. Knowledge 2. Responsiveness 3. Integrity. For me, these are critical features of an agent. Although I read and have a good understanding of the market and process, I still needed some hand holding during the purchase of my house and boy was I glad I choose the Garcia team to be on my side during this process.
To begin, Willie and Anna are extremely knowledgeable. Our initial interview with them consisted of going over the market, the process, what they will do, and establish a report (get to know us). They provided flyers, pamphlets, and did a power point presentation about the Whittier market, in particular, that had us impressed. This really set them apart. Willie knows the market and the ins-and-out of real estate.
The Garcia team was EXTREMELY responsive. If I called, they answered (even to let me know they would call me back). I work late hours and Willie and Anna accommodated every call for me. If I called them at 8-10pm they would answer. Weekend? No problem. Early in the morning, "Hello Miguel." I was really impressed. I texted them equally as much as I called. They responded quickly and thoroughly. If i needed further explanation, "lets jump on a call." I felt as if I was their only client (believe me, I was not) but they really made me feel as if I had a team ready to provide support at any point during the process.
Lastly, Integrity. Now as context, I came into this home buying process with a bad aftertaste. During the 2008 crash, many people I knew lost their home due to unscrupulous and unethical agents. Before I bought my home I knew the agent who I would choose had to be of integrity and I would question every move they made. The Garcia team are professionals in every sense of the word. They explained every line item in the contract, they were VERY transparent, and were always truthful. If their suggestion was one thing but I wanted to do another, they presented every offer and communicated every message to the other agent, no matter how ridiculous my request was. Not once did I question their professionalism or their integrity, rather, they are model agents with a moral compass that was validated time after time.
If you've gotten to this paragraph you've figured out by now how excited and happy I am to have chosen the Garcia team as my agents. The home buying process can be nebulous and scary at times. The Garcia team shinned the light in the dark places and "held my hand" as I learned how to walk during this process. Metaphors aside, I urge you to at least call them. If you are even thinking of buying a home, give them a call. Have a talk. They will make you feel as if you were family from day one!
Miguel V. - Whittier
The Garcia Team has in my experience always treated me like family. I mean that in every sense of the word in that they not only help you make a educated decision on making one of the most important decisions of your life purchasing your home. They provide you with the tools that you need to feel good and confident about your decision, they walk you through the process. Willie and Ana are truly and exceptional team and the way you can find that out firsthand is by not just becoming their client but when deal with them you will realize that it becomes a lifelong relationship!
David A.- Whittier
Great Realtor and friend. Did exactly what he said what was to be done and did it. Advises you where you stand, whether buying or selling your property. The Garcia Team are very detail oriented and makes you feel very comfortable. Highly recommend these realtors.
Randy V. - Whittier
The Garcia team are excellent realtors. They were very helpful from day one. Every part of the house buying process was explained to us from the beginning. They took the time to show us locations at any date and time. During the escrow process they would explain, with detail, any questions we had and also get answers from the lenders and sellers. Overall we are very satisfied with their service. My wife and I would highly recommend their service.
Jorge C. - Whittier
We recently purchased our second home in Pomona with Team Garcia. Willie was there thru every step and really jumped through hoops even having to drive out to Pomona a number of times for us just to explain how the process was going. We hit a couple snags with the seller to the point where we thought he was going to back out of the deal. If not for Willies experience we probably would have not been in our Beautiful home. He set the deal back on track and always was looking for our best interest
We couldn't be happier with our new place!
Manny C. - Pomona
Thank you Willie and Anna for such a great experience! We interviewed 3 agent to assist us with the purchase of our new home. We chose the Garcia team because they truly seemed to care. The other agents just wanted to sell us a house. Willie noticed that our credit scores could use some improvement, he referred us to a company that improved our credit scores and 3 months later we were ready to purchase our house with a better interest rate due to the improvement in our credit score. Thank you for being patient and truly wanting to help.
Ramsey N. - Whittier
Willie and Anna sold our home a few years ago. They are very good communicators, kept us informed every step of the way, and made themselves available. They showed a high level of competency in the skills and knowledge required to be an agent. It was obvious to us they read and research extensively, staying on top of current developments that might impact the market. Very attentive, trustworthy, and honest. We felt they were family. Will definitively use them again!!
JC C. - Whittier
My parents just sold their house a week ago thanks to The Garcia Team. Willie and Anna sold my parents house a few days before the 60 days were up. Willie went out of his way and recommended a lender that he trust to my parents. That saved them time. He also help my parents find a a good real estate office in the area that my parents moved too. Whenever my parents needed something explained to them Willie and Anna were always there to explain to them.
Cee P. - Whittier
William and Ana Garcia are great they helped me in all searching and buying a home. Any questions i had they were their for me no matter what time or day it was. And after i bought the home are still their for me. They made all the buying process feel safe and easy. I recommend this team to anybody who is looking to buy or sell. Great team!!!!
Esteban G.- Whittier
Willie and Anna have helped us in multiple transactions and they are both very polite. They are both professional. All my transactions have been handled very well. Well I do business with them again? OF COURSE we will. We trust them and they are the one of the BEST team we have worked with.
Thank you to you both and hope we can do business over and over in the near future.
Carlo K. - Los Angeles
My husband and I were searching for a home for about 8 months before being referred to Willie and Anna by a close friend. We had an unpleasant experience with family "helping" us find a home so this team was a god send. From the get go we were explained every detail of how the process would work and anyone going through this knows that buying a house is a HUGE deal. They tirelessly searched for our perfect home; they really went above and beyond to find it. There were hiccups along the way but nothing that was unable to be resolved efficiently and professionally by this awesome team. Anna was supportive charming and had an answer for every question at 7 am or 11 pm. I highly recommend the Garcia team if you are looking for a pleasant experience they will always have your best interest at heart.
Jason H. - Baldwin Park
Buying a home during a pandemic while in another state was a daunting task to begin with. Now that we are in our home, we are thankful we decided to choose and Anna as our realtors. We initially reached out to them after watching their YouTube videos which highlighted the area/neighborhoods, helpful for anyone who is from out of state. returned our call within minutes, we met virtually later that week and we were excited to find out they had experience with VA home buyers. Once we flew out to California, not only did they have houses lined up for us to see but also were honest about the neighborhoods and pros and cons for each house. It was evident at this point that knew about home construction/issues (thanks to his contracting experience) and this really helped us evaluate each home. When we finally came to the home that would eventually become ours, and Anna were always available and explained every process and step to us. As first time homebuyers, this was important for us as it was part of our due diligence process. Anna consistently reached out with updates and was always organized when it came to the paperwork, including our VA Loan docs. We are thankful we chose and Anna. Their knowledge about the market, availability, explanations, and willingness to work with out of state clients along with their genuine interest in helping us as more than simply their clients truly made our first home purchase process successful and enjoyable.
