We Have Many Happy Clients...



“I interviewed multiple real estate agents years ago, Anthony was most professional, knowledgeable and willing to help. Finally this summer I was ready to sell my house. My property was not the most desirable and easy to sell property, Anthony first discuss with me to learn my expectation and bring  his team in to strategize on how to sell my property. One of the impressive things was how Lorraine brought in furniture to staging my property. It looked so beautiful. She really knows how to bring the potential out of the house. Thanks to Lorraine and Anthony, the house selling was a smooth and pleasant experience. I got to work with the entire De La Vara team. They are the best!!”

“I recently sold my home, listing my home with the DeLaVara team in Hacienda Heights. The listing agent was Lorraine DeLaVara, who did an outstanding job in helping me with all aspects of selling my home. I also had the pleasure of being assisted by Kitty, Nicolette, Anthony and Anthony’s daughter  who all work together as a team. As a previous owner of a family business myself, I know the importance of providing excellent customer service, which is what I received from Lorraine DeLaVara. Having to sell my family home because of a divorce made my situation difficult at times. I found Lorraine to be very sensitive to my situation, helpful and very professional in handling the sale of my home. I would highly recommend this hard working team to anyone that needs a hard working and thoughtful real estate company. All to the DeLaVara Team and here’s to many more years of success in Hacienda Heights. Respectfully, Rene Darlene Oliveras Alva”

This is Lori T. I lived in Hacienda Heights for 34 years and we wanted to move, so we went to the De La Vara Team because they have serviced Hacienda Heights for years. I was so impressed with their service. They were very knowledgeable and very helpful. I highly recommend Anthony, Lorraine and  Kitty De La Vara.”

“My parents recently sold their home through the De La Vara team.  During the process, Lorraine went above and beyond what I expected and really did an excellent job.  The team is very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and know the market value of the home.  I put my trust in them during the sale and they delivered.”

“I would highly recommend Anthony De La Vara and his Team, everyone was so professional. They sold my parents home that they had been living in for 37 years and were patient and very helpful thru out the whole process with them and for that I am extremely thankful.”

“The De La Vara Team is top notch!! We had a challenging transaction when we sold our home in Hacienda Heights and Lorraine De La Vara was on top of her game every step of the way. Very professional, knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. We were very pleased with communication and always felt our interest was put first. We had to be careful with timing, since we were moving out of state. Lorraine was very sensitive to our needs and understood our priorities. We felt very confident from our very first meeting with Anthony and Lorraine. Even though the closing was difficult (no fault of the De La Vara Team), we knew we were in good hands and everything would work out. We made the right decision to list our home with De La Vara Team and we would do it again.

Great help staging our home
Very detailed with paperwork
Quick response time
Gave us comfort during an emotional transaction (we sold a home we built and owned for 44 years)”

“SOLD in 6 Days of Open House!!! This is an Amazing hard working staff. We hired them on a Sunday. Wednesday they had contractors in our house adding carpet and flooring; Thursday, Friday repairing and painting walls. (Please note: the contractors quality of work was very well done for the price). The house was listed Friday.  They added staging accents that complemented our furniture before Open House Saturday.  Monday came and the team continued to work hard on setting up more showings requested by other agents and in fact the actual buyer was from another agent.  I’m a firm believer in actions speak louder than your mouth. This office does not run at a snails pace but more like a lion if you’re truly ready to sell your house.  Our expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded in EVERY area from start to finish!!! 5 Stars is an understatement for their performance.”

“Dear Anthony:

Somehow the weeks are flying past and before life takes another left turn, I want to write to tell you how pleased I/we are with having made the decision to list my sister’s house on Edgeridge Dr. with your team when we did. From the moment I e-mailed you that first time, and your immediate phone call, I felt like one of the huge weights of this time was lifted from our shoulders, or at the very least, shared in some way by others.  From my/our first meeting with Michelle and Lorraine, I/we knew we were in good hands.  They made every single step of this process completely ease-free for us. Our not knowing local contractors and resources was not a burden we had to bear; Lorraine very happily took charge and found great people who did very good work.  I am, and will always be, ever so thankful for that.  Lorraine’s urging to get us to brighten and clean up the place not only played a part, in the end, in selling it, but it was good for us to see the old erased with some new.  We left there feeling very happy that we had given it some new love and that no matter what happens going forward, we won’t think of it as that dark and depressing scene we inherited.

Seldom in my years in business and ventures in my private life have I met such a professional group such as yours.  You should be very proud of each and every one of your team.  While we are beyond thrilled the property sold so quickly, I found myself a bit sad to lose touch with Lorraine and Michelle, after how closely we’d all been in touch during those weeks.  Please let them know I think they’re rock stars in the world of realtors! And while I can’t imagine why I would ever have the need to buy or sell anything else in your area, I can assure you I’ll be on your doorstep if I do.  We will definitely sing your praises whenever we can.”

“After interviewing the De La Vara Real Estate Team along with several agents I was sold on the idea that they truly work as a team. Since day one they had a plan and worked hard on getting things accomplished, always offering their assistance along each and every step of the way. They are truly committed in providing the best service that they can and always offering to help in any way possible. Reminds me of the Honda commercial! They have been professional since day one, always keeping me updated weekly with everything through phone calls or emails. I never had to call them to check up on things. I recommend them to anyone selling or buying a home. They take the worry out of selling a home!

 Thanks for everything Leonard and Anthony. You are really my angels and came at a time when I much needed you. Not only did  I receive excellent service from the both of you but everyone involved. I can’t say that about many companies, you are truly blessed to have a staff like yours. My gratitude you both of you and your team!”

“If they gave Oscars to real estate teams, Anthony De La Vara Real Estate would earn one.  Anthony and his team are knowledgeable, professional, and passionate about doing a great job.  No one knows the local market better. Without hesitation, I would recommend the Anthony De La Vara Real Estate team to anyone selling or buying a home in the area.  I only wish they had an office in Illinois so I could use them again when it comes time for me to sell my home.”

“Your advice and resources proved to be invaluable to get everything done in the time we did.   We appreciate you’re hard work, consistent efforts and professionalism. I’m glad we enlisted you to sell the house.

I am so glad I chose Anthony and his staff :)”

“this man knows Hacienda Heights.  if you live here or look foward to living here.. this office is your best source to finding a home.
if you plan to sell or lease your home, i highly recommend this office.. not only will they find you buyers/tenants but they filter out the apps who will consume your time.
God bless; i went to them for help on leasing out my home and couldn’t be more happier and relieved with the service and outcome i received.
i have A+ tenants with a tight lease agreement and backgrounds info.
this office felt/feels like family.. i was able to drop by anytime or call and they answered my questions on the spot. they shared knowledge with me and gave me advise for the long run.
they provided Contacts to bring my home up to par (carpet, termite, etc) all SOLID referrals.. these people came thru for my family and i..
agents come and go in this town.. Anthony has been here from the beginning, the highs, the lows, and now.. the turn.  dont miss the boat.. im grateful i called.”

“We started looking for a house in early 2011 and asked Anthony De La Vara to be our agent after meeting him at one of his open house.  We had a chance to talked to him and depth and were impressed with his knowledge.  He was very informative and my husband and I were very comfortable with him.  Anthony spent, on and off, about a year showing us homes and providing us information that would meet our specific needs.  With his patience and help, we finally found a house this past Feb and are now proud owners of a new home.  

Thank you Anthony and your team for providing us with such excellent service!”

“What a wonderful team to work with!!!! The De La Vara team sold our late parent’s home with dignity and grace. It felt like family was helping us through the difficult process. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you to The De La Vara team.”

“I met Mr. De La Vara at an open house. I asked him to sell my house because he seemed like a real genuine nice person. I was so glad that I made the right decision. He was so detailed, conscientious, and reliable. His expertise on selling my house was so helpful that everything went smoothly. Because of my wonderful experience, I asked him to help me buy a house too. Again, I was happy to have made the right decision. Buy and selling your house can be a wonderful experience or a nightmare, so you really need to be careful who you pick as an agent. Mr. De La Vara was fantastic!!! If you want to have the best experience in buying or selling, you need to look no further. Mr. De La Vara is simply the best!!! Thank you so much!!!

“Anthony is someone who really knows his market and understands his client’s needs. As a client I never felt pressured, I felt as if there was someone looking out for me and my best interest.”

Varela6773, Hacienda Heights ~ June 2011 via Zillow

“In 2010 Anthony listed and sold my house. His knowledge of the values in the area in excellent. He came highly recommended to me from a friend. Even in a declining real estate market Anthony was able to sell my house. I liked the fact that he had a team helping me in my transaction. It made it easier for my husband and I to make the transition.
