When I realized I would need the assistance of a real estate agent to sale my house, I knew exactly who to call, Oriana Shea and her team. I have had the pleasure of working with Oriana in selling my grandmother’s house and, then again, in purchasing my current home. I understand everyone knows some friend or family member that is a realtor and can help with the selling of your home, but they can not compete with Oriana’s professionalism and dedication to her work. During our first meeting to discuss comps and when we would be putting the house on the market, she walked through every room and offer suggestions as to what I should do. Fresh paint here, new pillows there, take down this, put up that. Providing appreciated advice from her years of experience to sell my home quickly and for top dollar. She, along with her assistant, Natalie, even accompanied me to Home Goods to shop for items to better stage my house for open house. Within two days of the open house, I received 5 offers with the lowest one being for asking price. And her dedication and assistance did not end there. She and her team (Big thanks to Denisse) stayed on top of all the paper work, from offers, to inspections, hazard reports, escrow papers, everything. They easily handled all the work and let me focus on the task of moving everything out. That is twice now that she has assisted me in selling a home, and with both homes Oriana worked her magic and sold them within a week of being listed. I cannot stress this anymore, you may know a realtor but YOU DO NOT KNOW A REALTOR LIKE ORIANA SHEA.
I am forever grateful to Oriana. She is the key that opened the door to my dream home. Oriana alleviated the stress of home buying for me by walking me through each step as if everything I needed was her first priority. She took care of everything A to Z, and made it look effortless. Oriana and her talented team were always available, and worked very hard to ensure a smooth transaction.
Working with Oriana feels like you are working with a friend who always has your best interest in mind. Even after I moved in to my new home, Oriana was there to ensure the moving process went smoothly. She really cared about my home buying experience. I would recommend Oriana to anyone who has high expectations and demands the best in a real estate professional. I am one of those picky homebuyers, and I can now truly state that I trust Oriana 100% to take care of all my real estate needs.
She's the best!
I cannot recommend Oriana enough! She has a very contemporary process to selling a home that was exactly what I was looking for - marketing, social media, staging advice, and a huge open house to drive interest. We received multiple offers above asking price after the first weekend. Through the whole process she was diligent, professional and with her great team made it all go smooth and easy! Sell your house with Oriana, you won't regret it!
Our experience with Oriana was great from start to finish. She is professional yet personable. She took the time to get to know us and help us establish exactly what we were looking for. She even helped us find a rental while we were looking. We couldn't be happier with Oriana's results!
Oriana is professional and efficient. She has a great eye for detail. We were moving from out of state and Oriana was patient and showed us many options until we found "the one".
My wife had been researching realtors in the Long Beach area for several years. We are very particular about who we choose to do business with. Oriana knocked on our door one day while I was at work. My wife was familiar with who she was and, after talking with her for a few minutes, knew this was a realtor that I would agree to working with. After a few months, we were ready to actively look and set a meeting. I give credit to my wife's professional insight...she was right, I liked Oriana from the start!
Oriana devoted many hours to helping us find what we were looking for. We moved into our new home just a couple months later. We didn't think it would happen that fast! She listened to what we wanted and found it! She was with us every step of the way.
A couple months later, we decided to sell our other home. Not only did she make some wonderful suggestions on small improvements, but she also got personally involved in helping make it happen. We received 2 offers in less than 14 days. We credit her marketing and expertise for that.
After a few months of living at our new property, we discovered a couple undisclosed "issues." Oriana was involved in helping resolve those problems.
My wife and I are happy to share with others that she's top notch and has put together a wonderful team. Oriana is our relator for life!
Richelle Long was awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable, she helped us find a home fast in a market where the houses go quickly. She helped us understand the comps and find the right price to offer on our new home. She got back to us quickly with any updates both during house hunting and negotiations. She was very flexible house hunting with our 8 month old daughter! I would highly recommend her and her team.
We recently used Oriana Shea and Company to sell our home in Park Estates in Long Beach. I highly recommend Oriana and her team if you are contemplating listing your home. From the start of the process all the way through to closing of the transaction, Oriana was proactive in guiding us in order to achieve the highest price possible. Her initial marketing plan and materials were well conceived and professionally prepared. She also provided the necessary advertising and raised neighborhood awareness such that we had well over 130 people through our initial open house. When we received an offer, Oriana did an excellent job of navigating through the negotiating process to ensure that we received a fair price for our home and that we closed timely.
Oriana and her team delivered what she said they would in all aspects of the transaction. I would like to stress that while Oriana has a team of people, she is very involved in each aspect of the transaction and uses her team effectively to support the selling effort. It was especially helpful that she had other agents to assist in the open houses, given the high volume of potential buyer traffic. I highly recommend Oriana to anyone contemplating buying or selling a home.
Oriana Shea: Five-Star Service | Expert Knowledge | Superior Resources | Unparalleled Commitment
Buying a higher-end home in Long Beach could have been a frustrating experience had we not found Oriana Shea at Keller Williams. Though we have bought and sold half a dozen homes in the Midwest, this was our first in California. The housing stock, the competition, the negotiation process, the regulations… all combined to create a daunting game that required a seasoned ally to help us navigate the playing field.
With Oriana on our team, we knew we had an advantage in finding our dream home. She took the time to get to know us… to learn exactly what we were seeking: style of house, neighborhood amenities, schools, commute times, dining, shopping, energy level. She also took the time to educate us about California's aggressive housing market. Very quickly, we identified our top communities and began digging in. The market was soft, with few houses remotely matching our criteria. Oriana got to work. Taking a proactive approach, she mailed letters to all homeowners in our desired areas. She reviewed houses that had been on the market and then off again. She tapped her resources and kept her ear to the ground to learn about opportunities before they went public. To say she beat the bushes, would be a true understatement.
Most importantly, however, Oriana was as committed to the hunt as we were. She was the first to say: "This home is great, but I think we can do even better for your dream home. Let's wait." We greatly appreciated her knowledge of the area as well as her access to statistical information. She helped us understand when houses were severely overpriced or had major shortcomings… and she gave us the confidence to know when to pull the trigger.
Throughout the process, Oriana offered scores of resources to help with everything from financing and inspections, to closing and repair services. She and her team of vetted specialists gave us the confidence and security we needed to feel comfortable making one of the most crucial decisions of our lives… investing in a family home.
In the future, we would turn to no other realtor than Oriana Shea.
Where do I start...We (my wife and I) were first time home buyers. We'd looked at one property prior to running into Oriana Shea and her company. My wife was looking through Zillow and found a house that was soon to be on the market ( there was only one photo of it). I had stopped by the house to see if it was open or had a sign and saw that Oriana, who was a stanger to me at that point was preparing to have photos taken of the property and soon to get the sign up. You see when you meet someone who is earnest and helpful you can tell from the first encounter that they are that way. Oriana is definitely one of those people. Long story short, even though she was the sellers agent, she still seemed so helpful to me as the buyer and it made us feel as if the process of buying a house was an easy one. As she could not represent us and her seller at the same time, she did give us The Best Buyers agent Richelle Long who is part is her team! Richelle was there for us at a moments notice with a calming knowledge showing professionalism and caring. I don't know what would have come out of this potentially hectic process without Oriana and Richelle. Oriana surrounds herself with exceptional people who are willing to go far beyond to make the process of selling or buying an easy one. I have already referred Oriana Shea and Company to fellow friends and coworkers and if I needed to sell or buy in the future she will be the one I call! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!
