Sahar T.

I followed a handful of high-producing South Bay agents on social media for a while, before I decided that Ceci and Steve were the teams I would like to work with. They put out informative videos about real estate locally, and my research online proved that they were one of the most respected, professional, and experienced real estate teams in the South Bay. Once we hired Watts and Associates, Matt Cox became our go-to person. He stayed in touch with us daily and informed us of every important milestone during the escrow. Matt recognized my detail-oriented personality and left no questions unanswered. He was proactive and took care of every element so that there was never any confusion or problem. He is a very engaged agent, a genuine person, and a clear communicator. Everything, from the photos taken of our property, to the description written about the house, was superbly done. We bene…

Matt recognized my detail-oriented personality and left no questions unanswered. He was proactive and took care of every element so that there was never any confusion or problem. He is a very engaged agent, a genuine person, and a clear communicator. Everything, from the photos taken of our property, to the description written about the house, was superbly done. We benefited from Ceci’s design experience and background, Steve’s incredible negotiation skills, and Matt’s tenacity and superior work ethic. Ultimately, Watts and Associates got our house sold for $11,000 over asking, and negotiated two months of free rent for us, while we find the perfect home, which they have already helped us find and we’re currently in escrow. Everything on this transaction has been smooth and pleasant, as well. My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to represent us. We highly recommend that before hiring an agent to sell your home or to buy your future home, you first interview Watts and Associates.

Scott & Kay M.

Kay and I wanted to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Watts team for helping us not only sell our house but close on an above-list-price sale. Weíre ecstatic that the house sold at such a terrific price and in such a short period of time with so few problems to deal with! Along the way, we gained comfort knowing you were keeping our best interests in mind in every phase of the process. Your honesty became something we could and did, count on as an unwavering constant. And your advice was always right on! With every house we have bought and sold over the years, we always emerge amazed at how broad and complex real estate transactions have become. And this one was no exception. We do recognize your team is accomplishing a next-to-impossible feat by making the process appear so easy for us — as you navigate miraculously through the myriad complexities of the listing and transaction p…

Steve, you should know that we will recommend you, without hesitation, to our friends and colleagues. It ís not often in todayís busy and complex world that we are so completely satisfied with a job someone has done for us. This is just such a situation. I'm not sure what else you or your team could have done to make us any more satisfied. Thanks again for a job well done! Very thankful and satisfied clients.

Chris & Charlotte T.

Capitalizing on their local area knowledge, we utilized Ceci’s decorating expertise in suggesting and overseeing landscaping, painting, hardware floor refinishing, and fixture replacement that increased the house value. Ceci and Steve also organized an Estate Sale that netted us more than we expected and left an empty house ready for workers to begin. During the whole process, we drove the 200-mile roundtrip from our house only 3-4 times. After less than a month for the upgrades, we listed the house for considerably more than other Realtors® had suggested. Their beautiful photography and virtual staging were very well done and resulted in two offers in less than a week. We couldn’t be happier with Ceci’s and Steve’s assistance in getting top dollar for us, doing it in, and a quick and painless (to us) process. We highly recommend their services.

Dear Steve and Ceci: Penny and I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for assisting us in purchasing our new home. Your passion and enthusiasm for real estate set you apart from your peers. I know you have won numerous professional awards, but what those awards donít say is that you are a caring and committed real estate professionals. We knew you always had our best interests in mind throughout the duration of our transaction. You went the extra mile to set the proper expectations and to make the transaction work. You were always patient, willing to listen to our desires, and able to alleviate our concerns. Although today's pace lives often make it difficult to connect with one another, both of you made yourselves available and accessible to us. It is this personal touch that will bring us back when it is time to list again.

Steve and Ceci really are the best. As a first-time homebuyer, I didn’t really know what to expect and they walked us through every step of the process. Both are extremely knowledgeable about real-estate and home purchasing/selling but furthermore, they are very knowledgeable about how a home can be renovated and or decorated to help you get a vision when buying. This was hugely helpful to me to help me understand what each home we looked at would entail to get it where I wanted it to be. All real-estate aside though, they are excellent people- kind and friendly and they really do care about their clients. They always go the extra mile to accommodate their people. I have zero complaints and only amazing praises after working with them to buy our home.
