Oriana Shea reviews

by Stephen Casey on The Oriana Shea Group
Oriana helped me find the PERFECT HOME! I am a younger buyer who was looking but pushed out of the market 2 years ago due to investors buying everything in cash. She knew the market so well that she told me the perfect time to start looking again. Her and her team spent a good amount of time understanding my needs, wants, and desires. After about two weeks of researching different homes, we final settled on looking at 7 in the area I wanted to live in. We saw all 7 in one day, and I had not only found but named my home that very day.They understood exactly what I wanted, and did not give me the run around looking at home out of my area or price range. Now the crucial part came in to play, GETTING THE HOME. Oriana is so knowledgeable and understands the market so well, she told me exactly what I should offer to get my bid accepted. A few problems arouse in the inspection, she did not hesitate to make sure that I was comfortable at all times with my decision before closing. She and her team made sure that those issues were resolved before loan documents were signed. So with her Help I purchase a BEAUTIFUL home, in my favorite area of town. I am thankful for her help every shingle time I come home and step in my house. Thank you Oriana and Team. – Stephen Casey

Oriana has been my real estate agent for many years. I was looking for a home near CSULB close to ten years ago. After discussing with her exactly what I was looking for; lot size, room arrangements, and condition of house, she showed me several houses which met my requirements. She was a fabulous negotiator with the seller's agent, and I got a great price for my dream house. Since then she has represented me when selling other properties. I have recommended her to friends and she has sold and bought for them as well. Oriana knows the Long Beach area and the surrounding areas extremely well, and she will find exactly what you are looking for. Oriana is also very personable, friendly and very easy to work with. – Carolyn Katsufrakis

Going to escrow in less than a week after listing, with an offer that meets our asking price, which exceeded the sale price of the home less than a year ago!!! That's got to be some kind of record!! When my brother suddenly passed away I became executor for his estate, which included the dream home he had just recently purchased. His purchase price was slightly above comparable homes in the area as the previous owners had made considerable improvements. Since I live in NJ, I knew I needed someone who understood the market well in Southern California and could handle all the logistics of a probate sale, including emptying the house of personal belongings, staging the house for family buyers (my brother was a single man), and even calling AAA to jump start his Corvette and get it loaded onto a carrier and shipped to the east coast. These are not tasks typically handled by a real estate agent, but Oriana showed no hesitation in taking on these tasks and performing above and beyond what anyone would expect of their agent. She developed an online ad for the property that resulted in multiple offers the first weekend it was listed, most at asking price and one that exceeded. Oriana knew the market well enough to know what buyers wanted, and how to market to those buyers. Oriana and her staff have little competition in my opinion, as they are performing at a level of professionalism, efficiency, and knowledge that far exceeds other agents. I highly recommend Oriana Shea & Company and feel fortunate to have found someone I can trust like a family member. I only wish she worked on the east coast, so I could recommend her to friends. – Donna Woronkiewicz

Simply the BEST!!! We used Oriana a few years ago for the sale our home and the purchase of another in the area. Utimately, the deal didn't work out as the buyer of our home fell thru as they had a co-signer back out (the purchase of our new home was contingent on the sale of our existing home). Oriana and her entire team demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, knowledge and communication throughout the entire process. From the first time we met with her when she shared her marketing strategies to the completion of the transations we had all our questions/concerns addressed in a prompt and professional manner. She helped us prepare and 'stage' our home and had professional photographs to help ensure we'd have timely offers for the top dollar value. I have recommended her to several other friends/neighbors and will continue to do so. Thank you Oriana Shea and Company! – Shannon Cunningham

Oriana Shea has been our realtor for several years. Through that process she also became our friend. She came highly recommended for good reason as we later found out. My wife and I were looking for an income property. We were in our 40s and were trying to be proactive about preparing for retirement. We knew very little about real estate. Oriana met with us, discuss our situation, committed to working hard to satisfy our needs related to property purchases and made us feel comfortable about a very big investment decision. I was skeptical at first because I had met with realtors before. They were generally pretty pushy and aggressive types that had some knowledge but seemed to lack the details that we needed to better understand the home buying process. Oriana was different. I have never met a person who works so hard at her craft but still manages to make it seem effortless. She put no pressure on us whatsoever. She knows everything you’ll need regardless of your situation. I typically don’t write endorsements because they tend to be problematic if the person you endorse can’t live up to your claims. I can say with confidence that Oriana will exceed all of your expectations; she’s that good. We have since purchase a second property with Oriana’s help. The transaction could not have gone better. If I had to sum up my experience with Oriana in one word I would say trust. She has always been honest with us and never put us in a situation that we later regretted. She is competent and professional and provided us with experience that we continue to draw on today. She continues to be good counsel for us and is a person I do not hesitate to call when I have questions about houses, landscaping, colors, property management, etc. Buying property is not something that is done frequently so it is difficult to find someone you can count on to help you navigate. Oriana Shea is that person. Call her. You won’t be sorry. – Tom McDonald

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Oriana during the purchase of our home from family. We are first time home buyers so the paperwork was overwhelming but she helped explain everything quickly and efficiently. The whole process was nerve racking but she kept all parties involved aware of everything that was going on. She has a great team working with her that are really on top of things. Even the termite company she used for us did such an amazing job that I have been recommending them to everyone I know. Thank you Oriana! – Emma Sisk

Oriana is an awesome real estate professional! Her expertise made selling our home an absolute breeze. When the buyers gave us trouble, Oriana handled the issues and kept the closing on track... I would recommend her without reservation, her knowledge and experience was invaluable in selling our home! The only reason I gave her a 5 star rating is because 6 stars was not an offered option... we love you Oriana! – Tom Charrier

After speaking and meeting with three other realtors, we thoughtfully decided that Oriana and her team was the one who would help us sell our home and find us a new one. From beginning to end, Oriana and her team displayed the utmost professionalism, and worked hard beyond our expectations to get us our dream home. I cant emphasize enough the lengths to which they helped us in our search for a home. Oriana is kind, yet bold & straightforward. Strong, but makes sure you are taken care of. We knew we were in the best hands. We trusted her 100% to get it done. And she did! We sold our home quickly and got the exact house we wanted in the competitive Los Altos market. Her team is also fabulous! Everyone we interacted with was extremely helpful. They focused on making this process as smooth as possible. I can't say enough good things about Lisa Marinoff. She was the icing on the cake. Completely sweet, hard working and diligent! She made sure to hold our hands during such a stressful, yet celebratory time in our family. She was super responsive, went above and beyond every day, and always did everything with a smile. Thank you Oriana Shea and Company! If you're thinking of buying or selling a home (or both, like us!) go with this amazing team. They are the best people to be on your side. Good luck! – The Ines Family

If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the Long Beach area...LOOK NO FURTHER. There is no one better working in Real Estate today than Oriana Shea. We were fortunate enough to first meet and become friends with Oriana and her "MacGyver" husband Mike when they moved in across the street from us. So when the time came for us to sell our house, we made one call! That was it, Oriana and her team handled EVERYTHING!!! I really wished we could have bribed them to pack for us too! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks to O and her team! – The Williamsons

Oriana and her staff are true professionals. Oriana's warm and gracious personality makes her a sincere pleasure to work with. Her expert marketing techniques including an Internet virtual tour of the home were beyond anything we could have imagined. Oriana has a complete understanding of the market, pricing and timing. After the first weekend of open house, we had five solid offers and accepted an offer for $25K above our initial asking price. Just look at the other reviews. If it were possible, we would have given her 10 stars. We have recommended her to our friends and will continue to do so. There is no one like Oriana Shea. – The Gordons
