The desire to purchase a home in a recession can be a frightening experience especially if you are a young family that is starting out. Finding a knowledgeable realtor is vital for the success of an effective purchase. Working with Alicia Mendoza allowed my husband and I to continue with our full time jobs and still have time to dedicate to our home search process. Alicia is not only an expert in the Real Estate business, but also very flexible. Alicia was able to accomodate our busy schedules and find the time to educate us about the home buying process and show us homes that we were interested in seeing. She was able to match our interests, location, and price range with property that we could actually call home. We are more than pleased with the service we received from Alicia Mendoza. She is very knowledgable, friendly, and willing to assist you to meet your needs. Thanks to Alicia, my husband and I were able to move into a home we love, in a neighborhood we feel very comfortable in. It really feels like "home!" Thanks Alicia for you long hours and hard work to make this happen for us.
Alicia is the best hands down! She is the A team and will get the job done. I met with her January 2013 telling her what I wanted in my new home. I knew this would be my forever home so I wasn't going to settle. I had many concerns especially regarding the schools and neighborhoods and she was able to put my mind at ease all hours of the day. We would be texting bright and early in the morning and late at night before bed. She even reached out to people she knew to help me feel more comfortable with the schools around the area and suggested I tour the schools as well. She is very knowledgeable about anything and everything and if she doesn't know it, which is rare, she would find out and get back to me ASAP! After 2 offers we lost due to cash buyers, she wrote a nice cover letter for us for our current home and we got it! It's been a little over a year and we couldn't be happier! She also helped us find renters for our other home and that went just as smoothly. You will be thoroughly satisfied with Alicia's professionalism and knowledge. It helps that she's likeable too! Thanks Alicia!

Our family would like to thank Alicia for her outstanding work as our realtor in selling our parents' home. She is knowledgeable, communicated with us regularly on the progress of the sale and was always available to respond to any questions or special needs. She was a valuable resource arranging for any inspections, work/and or repairs that were needed to have our house meet city and county regulations. She also arranged for business to take place over the internet as well as in the community in which the buyers lived and helped to find escrow services that provided language interpretation as necessary. We are very happy and pleased with all of Alicia's efforts on our behalf and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a realtor.
Working with Alicia Mendoza was an absolutely wonderful experience. She ensures that her customer is 100% satisfied and comfortable with the work she is performing. Unlike other real estate agents Alicia will never force her decisions on you. She is not forceful with you at all and will never force you to make a decision you are not comfortable with. Her technical knowledge of the field, current market, overall economy, housing construction, negotiation process, documentation management, and required paperwork is superior in quality. Her meticulous nature is extremely helpful in understanding the fine details of the buying process including details within the contracts. At all times Alicia is able to effectively communicate her thoughts in a clear and concise manner. In addition whenever I had questions she was always able to respond in a timely manner by email or phone. Her technical knowledge, communication skills, professionalism, and work ethic are a great asset for anyone looking to purchase a home. As a result I would recommend Alicia to anyone looking to purchase a house.

I have known Alicia for over a decade, first met as co-workers, and soon became friends. I referred her to my sister in Jan 2013 (after my sis struggled for months looking for a home on her own), and within a couple of months, my sister found her dream home. Shortly thereafter, my husband and I began our journey and did not hesitate to contact Alicia. She is not only professional, but is an incredibly effective listener, is extremely patient with high demands (from both my husband and the selling agent), and is extremely detail oriented, especially with all of those real estate documents and contracts! She goes ABOVE AND BEYOND her job description, often working late nights or weekends, and even after we moved into our new home, we felt so grateful for her guidance on new home ownership. A question was never too silly, and she answered every single one with accuracy and the utmost respect. Thankfully, she also helped us sell my husband's condo, so we were lucky enough to benefit from her buying AND selling agent talents! We have referred our friends to Alicia, and will continue to do so for the rest of our lives!

Alicia is an outstanding Realtor. Honestly, my past experiences before her were not so great (so I was a little sour on Realtors in general), but Alicia is unique. I think her experience as an Accountant before she entered the real estate business really helps set her apart. She works hard to help you achieve your goals, and I never once felt pressured by her to go outside of our target/goals or comfort zone. She genuinely seemed more interested in helping us than increasing the amount of her commission.
I hired Alicia to find our new home as well as sell my condo;she worked tirelessly on both projects. We have already recommended her to several friends, and they have all been happy with her. Alicia is hands-down the best Realtor I've worked with and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her again.

Alicia assisted me with the sale of my real estate property during a very difficult time in the real estate market. However, she worked diligently and tirelessly to ensure that my best interests were always addressed. She was very detailed, thorough, and made me feel very comfortable working with her throughout the entire process. I have since recommended her to others that have given me nothing but positive feedback about her.
When the time came for us to sell the house that had been our home for the last two decades the market timing was not a good one for sellers. But life’s changes do not always coincide with a good real estate market. Many homes were in foreclosure, selling short and remaining on the market for long periods of time. We knew from the start that finding a buyer was not going to be easy and that careful preparation and marketing would be essential for a successful outcome.
We had great confidence in the ability and dedication of Alicia Mendoza. She advised us on how to best prepare our house for market and arrive at a listing price. She is skilled in the most up to date marketing techniques and held numerous open house events. Once she found a buyer we relied heavily upon her experience to advise us on all of the negotiations throughout the escrow.
As the date when escrow was due to close and complications developed with the buyer’s lender, Alicia was faced with unanticipated negotiations that made more demands on her time. Fortunately she was able to balance the concerns of both parties while still protecting our interest and reach a successful closing.
It was a pleasure to have worked with her and we really appreciated the effort she put into helping us. Alicia also helped us buy our current home and when the time comes for us to sell again we hope to be able to work with Alicia again. Thank you Alicia.
Alicia is extremely professional yet personable at the same time - two qualities that you definitely need when making a big financial yet emotional step as house buying and/or selling. She was both our buyer and seller agent and we could have not been more happy with all she did to help us purchase the beautiful home we are in today as well as sell the condo that we first started our family in. In buying our house, we were not the only people who made an offer. She did all she could to make us desirable to the seller and we got our offer accepted when we weren't even the highest offer. When it came to selling our condo, she was able to get us over 25 offers after showing our condo for only 3 days. This is obviously above and beyond our expectations during a very difficult housing market in Irvine, California. I highly recommend her as an agent and know if we were to buy/sell again someday, she would be ours again.

It was a relief having Alicia Mendoza as my Realtor for my first home purchase. Her patience and her understanding of the thoughts going through my mind as a first time homebuyer made me feel comfortable asking any of my questions and voicing my concerns. Alicia was truly professional and patiently guided me through all the convoluted paperwork involved in such a life-changing purchase. I've already referred my sister-in-law to her to guide her in this whole process. She's definitely the one I will turn to for any of my future real estate transactions.
Being a first time home buyer, Alicia was very helpful and patient throughout the whole process. She explained every step, what it entailed, and how it affected me as a home owner/buyer. Alicia also provided great info. regarding the homes we visited. When it's time for me to search for another house, I would definitely work with Alicia again!

Working with Alicia was truly a pleasure. She was always excited and motivated, she really put her heart into her work. She listened to my needs constantly throughout the process, and adjusted her search for the type of home I wanted accordingly. I ended up finding the perfect home at a wonderful price; since then I have repeatedly been referring Alicia to my other friends that are looking for a house of their own. Alicia is a GREAT realtor and I will work with her for my future home purchases as well. I recommend her to anyone that is interested in buying a house.
Alicia was awesome in helping us find a new home in Orange County. She provided step-by-step updates, process requirements, documents and fought to get us the best deal for the property we liked. I highly recommend contacting her if you plan to buy/sell your next property.
The best part of the buying process was how she kept us informed on the many documents needed or what needed to be done, as it becomes extremely confusing when going through something like this.
A+++++ work done.

Ms. Mendoza was very helpful and professional in handling our recent home sale. She got us a good deal and we were pleased with her efficient paperwork on our behalf. Communication and explanation were good and the sale was accomplished with minimal work from us.
