Mike and Tanya are really wonderful … I’ve now bought and sold a home with them and each experience has been great. They’re thorough, professional, they know the areas very well – and since I’m new to LA, this was very important to me. They also truly care about finding the home you want – and guiding you to make the best choices based on your needs, your personal situation, etc. I highly recommend them to everyone I know – if you work with them, you will not be disappointed.
Tanya is extremely driven, conscientious, knowledgeable and caring. She does things when she says she will and is always on top of all paperwork. There wasn’t ever any pressure from her to sell, and she even advised that I hold out for more money even though it would have been in her best interest simply to make sure to close the deal.
Perhaps a few other Realtors out there might share some of those qualities, but here are two reasons why you should *absolutely* go with Tanya, which you’d be hard-pressed to find another Realtor do:
1) I sold my condo with Tanya after buying a house. Due to extenuating circumstances, the person who had been my Realtor when buying the house did not receive any commission from the sale. So before signing with Tanya I asked if she would be okay with giving a piece of her commission on my condo to this other Realtor, since the other Realtor had worked hard and diligently on the house purchase but seen not a penny from it. And Tanya immediately agreed! She felt much compassion for this other Realtor and wanted to help make things right.
2) Since I had already bought the new place before selling my condo, I needed to sell my condo FAST – within 45 days – or else rent it out. Tanya was not at all daunted by my timetable, and hit the ground running with a bunch of open houses. When I asked why everyone only does three hour open houses, without batting an eye Tanya started scheduling mine for five hours…while she was 7 months pregnant!
Having Tanya on your team is truly a tremendous asset. And as part of that team you will also get her husband Mike! Mike has a tremendous amount of experience as well and seems like a great guy. (Tanya was my point person and I dealt with her 99% of the time, so that’s why this review focuses on her.) These are some fabulous, warm, hard-working people to have in your corner.
Mike and Tanya Toledo were absolutely wonderful to work with. As first-time home buyers my wife and I knew almost nothing about the process of buying a home, we really just knew what we wanted…and what we didn’t. Mike and Tanya helped us, guided us and advised us every step of the way. They were professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. Which, really, is a rare combination to find in any service. They really wanted to help us get what we wanted out of our new home purchase…and they did. Mike and Tanya were on time for every meeting we had. They made themselves available for every question we had, no matter what time…and they kept us informed about every detail of the process of buying our home so that there was no stress or confusion for us. Mike even came back to our new home on his own time, after the close of our sale, to help me move a t.v. wall mount. All of this AND they had just recently become parents to a beautiful baby girl…I mean literally just a couple of weeks before we started looking for our new home. I have no idea how they managed to make so much time for us, along with their other clients, and their baby!!! I am beyond happy and impressed with their service as our realtors and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor in Los Angeles! Thanks Mike and Tanya!!!
We tentatively started our home search last year but we were concerned about how long it would take to find our home. We started looking and the Toledo’s starting zoning in what our dream neighborhood would be and why it makes sense for our family. We drove around to all the neighborhoods and with there market knowledge we narrowed our search. And they worked so quickly (which is important with housing market being so competitive) and found us a dream home. Once we found the home they negotiated the contract which was difficult because the house was still under construction. It was a tightrope of managing expectations on both sides of the transaction. And being first time home buyers we had tons of questions and they were always patient throughout the process. And even after we closed escrow they have been available to answer questions and make us feel at ease. They turned a potentially stressful nightmare into our dream home and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants impeccable customer service. I cannot imagine a better experience in finding a home.
Tanya helped me to buy a house in Sherman Oaks, and she and Mike were EXCELLENT at diligence, follow through, advising me on the process, reading between the lines on how much to bid, etc.
I was THOROUGHLY satisfied with their service, felt they went above and beyond SEVERAL times (Mike went and spent hours pulling city permit records without me ever asking for it), and I would HIGHLY recommend them.
They were both personable and human and relatable – if that sounds like no biggie, then you should’ve met the Gucci loafered hair product guy that was the seller’s agent…sheesh! Mike and Tanya were GREAT, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to a friend.
It was a very emotional time for us but Mike and Tanya really understood and helped us to understand the process of selling our home and were readily available for any of our questions. They took great care of us and it felt like good friends were helping us out with the sale. I can’t thank them enough. We had last minute requests that never through them off.
We found Tanya & Mike during an open house tour. They are really friendly and passionate in helping us buy our first condo on the Westside.
Tanya is very knowledgeable on the Westside real estate market. She is patient and very organized in her approach. Whenever we have a question, she is ready to answer. When we decided to put down an offer for a condo, She was quick to pull recent comps and get the paperwork ready.
We were able to secure a home below asking price and is very pleased with the process. We would highly recommend Tanya & Mike to our friends and family if they ever decide to look for a place in Los Angeles.
Thank you Mike and Tanya!
The Toledo’s helped us through our home sale and treated it as if it was their own. They went above and beyond our expectations. They were available whenever we needed and even helped us sort through the details of our move.
The Toledo’s were a pleasure to work with and we would happily recommend the Toledo’s to others.
Mike and Tanya Toledo were a Machine! I loved every minute of working with them. They knew the area amazingly well. They offered me guidance, even convinced me not to make an offer on a property i was willing to make an offer on. I truly felt they had my best interests at heart. This was my first time buying a home and they walked me through every step and answered all my questions. they were reachable 24/7 and have recommended everyone from plumbers, designers, painters, inspectors etc. They made what my home buying experience convenient and easy. While searching for the home, they really listened to what i wanted and only sent my to open houses that fit my criteria. I highly recommenced working with them.
Mike & Tanya Toledo were awesome to work with and I would recommend them to anyone else!!! They were very professional and helpful. They are very knowledgeable and extremely efficient.
We solicited the Toledo’s assistance when looking for a home in Beverly Hills. They were fast, efficient and resourceful and were able to come up with excellent housing matches to meet our needs. Always punctual to appointments and housing tours they were also responsive to our changing demands. When we finalized our perfect match, they proved themselves to be skillful negotiators. We highly recommend their services.
We first met Tanya while she was hosting an open house in the same complex as our now sold town house. She immediately caught our attention for how friendly, attentive and knowledgeable she is with the current state of the market and the very home she was selling. We knew we wanted to work with her and her husband when it was time to sell our home. No more than a few months after our first meeting, we contacted Mike and Tanya to visit our home and discuss our plan to sell our town house. Mike and Tanya told us the reality of the market, what to expect, their role and our role in the sale of our home.
We didn’t want to stage our home since we lived with two kids. Tanya gave us some useful advice on how to declutter and arrange our furnishings. The photos of our home came out so beautiful, our friends, family and even we questioned why we were selling.
Mike and Tanya successfully hosted multiple open houses, which we welcomed. They had originally told us about the state of market, so it wasn’t a surprise. They were very accommodating and made sure everything was back in order when the open houses were finished. They also didn’t miss in briefing us on the events and the prospects. The amount of time it took to sell our home is what they had originally told us it would take, and we sold our home for the price we were asking. We are very happy with the result of the sale.
We could not be any more pleased with Mike and Tanya’s professionalism, ease to work with and friendly attitudes. We would definitely call on them again when we’re ready to buy or sell our next home. We highly recommend Mike and Tanya for any of your real state needs.
Mike & Tanya are true professionals and I am blessed to have them on my side. I met Tanya back in 2008 as a first time homebuyer. Even though we had a budget she treated us like her clients in Beverly Hills. She immediatly responded to any phone calls, e-mails, texts, etc. Extremely knowledgeable with the area and has extremely impressive negotiation skills. On top of it she has a wonderful personality. You can tell she absolutely loves her career in Real Estate. To this day my wife and I still talk to Tanya every now and then even though we live 2000 miles away. She has come to be a true friend. It is hard to find people like Mike & Tanya in this world today, weather you are buying or selling, they are fun, professional & stress free!
I highly recommend Mike and Tanya Toledo. They recently sold our house and helped us to purchase our new home. Their attention to detail and responsiveness is impeccable. During this highly stressful time they expertly navigated us through the entire process. They know the market inside and out, really shined through the inspection process with their knowledge and expertise on both houses, and closed both properties on time.
Both Mike and Tanya were with us every step of the way and had great insights in both areas, what type of houses and also when it came to negotiating the purchase. Also passed along great references for all work that has to do with the house. A very stressful process was transformed into a very simple operation thanks to their knowledge. We felt protected the whole time. It’s great to have someone looking out for your best interest! Strongly recommend them! Thanks again guys!! Stefan & Florence
Prior to selecting the Toledos to be our seller’s agent, we did not know them. Another resident of our eight unit condo building sold her unit very quickly and received several great offers. When we decided to sell our unit, we asked her who she used. That’s how we found Mike Toledo. Mike delivered similar results for us and we are very happy with our decision to go with the Toledos. For most people, the results would be sufficient and before we started to work with Mike we may have said the same thing. However, we found Mike to be an extremely hardworking, knowledgeable and a calming force in a very stressful process. The most stressful event during our sale was our discovery of a roof leak that saturated the drywall in our ceiling 36 hours before our buyer’s final walkthrough and less than four days before the scheduled closing. Two of Mike’s best qualities shined during that time: 1) his integrity – he insisted on a course of action that would fully satisfy the buyer including identifying and repairing the source of the leak, opening up the ceiling and having a mold expert rule out the presence of mold and removal and repair of all compromised ceiling drywall and 2) his level-headedness and calm – he helped us recognize that we just have some additional steps to take and maintained his cool which helped us restore ours. We closed our home on-time and as scheduled under Mike’s guidance. Mike was always available by phone, text or even in person – we definitely miss having Mike stop by now that we sold our home. Over dinner recently, we both agreed that we didn’t know a single person in either of our respective careers that put as much of themselves into their job and demonstrated so much pride in their work as Mike. We mentioned Mike because we had the most interaction with him, but, we also had a few opportunities to work with Tanya and we found her to be very personable, knowledgeable and they clearly communicate very effectively because Tanya was always ready to step in – we were often impressed that she never needed to be brought up to speed on anything. They truly work as a unified team. We have already recommended the Toledos to close friends and relatives and we hereby give the strongest recommendation to anyone who reads this.
We were first time home buyers and really did not know what we could afford or even what area to start looking. Mike put us on the path and gave us the necessary information to be able to make the right decisions. He was very honest in letting us know if he saw problems with a property and that allowed us to avoid future problems. He was very patient and answered all our questions, even when we were freaking out when we were entering escrow on the home that we purchased.
I have used Mike & Tanya Toledo for my last two properties. First they found me the perfect home in my price range in my targeted location. Then they helped with simple upgrades, staging, marketing and finding appropriate comparable sales to price my home for a quick sale. They sold my house in one day and the cash price exceeded my expectations. Mike & Tanya were always available to answer my questions and concerns and are an invaluable asset. I will return to Mike & Tanya for any future real estate needs and I recommend them highly whether you are a buyer or a seller. Their knowledge, effort and professionalism all make them the perfect agents.
The Toledos represented the seller of the first home my husband and I purchased and, three years later, when we were ready to move on, were the only realtors we considered for the job. They helped us coordinate the repairs and freshening up that the place needed before hitting the market and negotiated a quick sale, considerably over the asking price. The process could not have gone more smoothly or had a better outcome. Mike and Tanya absolutely go the extra mile and are not just our realtors, but now, our friends.
Mike and Tanya did an amazing job throughout the entire selling process. We were first time sellers so understanding the process was challenging. Mike and Tanya spent the extra time and energy to always make us feel comfortable by educating us at key points during the process and negotiations. They had an excellent marketing plan including professional photos and direct marketing to promote our listing. They did a great job championing our goals to the buyer and despite some difficult situations relating to selling a condo, they handled the challenges professionally and in a timely manner. They maintained our trust throughout the entire process which was important to us and also made the close of escrow less stressful. I will recommend using Mike and Tanya as agents to any of my family, friends and coworkers looking to sell their properties.
Tanya sent us only the properties that satisfied our requirements, she tried to be together with us for every properties tour and shared with us her expertise on many aspects of each property. She is actively interact with agent from the other sides, and has been very transparent to us. During the escrow, she paid detail attention to each items and reminded us for things that might be a concern. And after closed, she has been open for future help if needed. This is our first experience, and Tanya made it a very smooth transaction for us to move in to our new home, thank you Tanya and for those who’s reading this review, we highly recommend Tanya to be your agent and we are confident that she can be helpful to you as well.
Mike and Tonya were proactive, supportive, and advocated strongly for me and my needs as the seller throughout the home-selling process. There were multiple offers after the first showing, and in the end my house sold for well above asking. When difficulties arose, as they almost always do when selling/buying property, the Toledos were on top of the details and invaluable in helping me to make the best decisions. Thanks guys!
I would recommend the Toledos to anyone, without hesitation or reservation. They rep both sellers and buyers, and I used them as a first time home buyer. Their tremendous individual time and efforts, relevant knowledge of the market, and skill in negotiating, were instrumental in my transaction. As a first-time buyer, the Toledos were a source of comfort, as their knowledge of, and guidance through, the buying process provided me with a needed confidence throughout, and their reminders to me that we would search as long as it takes to find the right property really put me at ease, knowing that they were in it for the long haul as needed, allowing me the freedom to not be rushed into anything. On the day-to-day searches for property, I dealt primarily with Tanya, and based on an initial meeting and call, I was taken by Tanya’s uncanny knack for learning and knowing they style of property I would tend to like, which greatly focused our efforts, as did her previewing of certain properties so that I did not need to personally run all over town, especially given my full trust in her judgment, as earned by her abilities. I was promptly and continuously alerted to new listings. Moreover, as a first-time buyer, there were always many questions I had about the market and the process, and both Tanya and Mike were easily accessible to discuss and explain. With the Toledos, you always feel like you are their primary focus and concern. In my particular case, when I found the property that I ultimately purchased, the Toledos were constantly available and their level of attention went over and above what I believe you can expect to find with just anyone. And again, their strong knowledge and constant communication with the listing agents ably guided me over at least a week as we moved from offer to acceptance while competing with other potential buyers. This transaction happened because of their expertise and guiding hands, and I am thrilled with what their efforts achieved. Furthermore, the Toledos then guided me and met with me through all the necessary steps once escrow opened as we worked over the next month towards closing. Even after closing, the Toledos did not just disappear and move on, but have been following up with me to ensure that certain items for which we negotiated are being taken care of. Whatever your knowledge or level of experience, the Toledos are the right people to have by your side.
Mike & Tanya are great! Given how large a market LA is and how much cash gets thrown around, you’d expect real estate professionals by and large to be exactly that–professional–but more often than not RE agents are wannabe actors/writers/musicians/etc who are really terrible. M&T, on the other hand, are smart, knowledgable, have great perspective, respectful, patient, and just a great pleasure to work with. Not that there were no hiccups working with them, but overall, I’ve yet to meet better agents in LA.
Mike and Tanya are an excellent collaborative team that feed off of each other’s strengths to ensure a smooth home purchase or sale. They helped us purchase our 1st home in Palms in Aug-16 and sell our condo a few blocks away in Sep-16. They went above and beyond throughout each process and helped us navigate any challenges along the way to ensure it was as smooth as possible. We highly recommend them.
I met Mike and Tanya a few years ago doing some work for them. I was very impressed with the operation the both of them had. They were also very warm and caring people. Guess I’m saying I liked them from the start. After an unimpressive meeting with an agent who supposedly knew our townhouse property well, I turned to the Toledo’s to handle my real estate needs. He came over and saw my unit (along with two others in my community for sale) and suggested a selling price (higher than the previous agent). Within the first week the pictures were taken and Mike held an open house. He kept in constant contact with me and was showing my place (more times than I can remember). It wasn’t long before we had a full price offer. Through the whole escrow, the Toledo’s kept us in the loop via email and text. Mike personally showed up at my place for all the inspections and showings, whatever it took. The whole process was smooth. My wife and I were very happy with the Toledo’s professionalism, attention to detail, communication and – them! I’ve passed their names on to my neighbors, you’d be in good hands letting Mike and Tanya sell your place for you!
From my very first meeting with Tanya and Mike, I knew I could trust them to sell my home of 37 years. I am a 62-year-old single woman who, after much thought and consideration, had chosen the difficult task of “downsizing and simplifying” my life. I explained my situation to the Toledos and they immediately understood my needs and wishes. Basically, they “held my hand” throughout the entire grueling experience and made the sometimes frightening process palatable and exciting. Searching for a condo on the Westside of Los Angeles that was affordable and would accommodate my two dogs was a challenge, to say the least. But, they truly understood my needs and patiently found me the perfect new home for me and my dogs. Mike and Tanya took care of every small and large detail with me while buying the condo, moving and selling my house. They were available 24/7 for any reason and I am proud to say we have now become very good friends. The Toledos are young, hungry and very knowledgeable business partners who will move mountains to find their clients the perfect home.
We are happily repeat customers of the fantastic Toledo team! Mike and Tanya go above and beyond in every way imaginable. They are incredibly knowledgeable about buying and selling and the market in general. Because of the Toledos we got our dream price on the sale of our home and got into our next dream home for a great price thanks to their wonderful negotiation skills. We cannot recommend the Toledos enough!
Best in the business. Very hands on the while time! They had a ton of great ideas to get my property rented. The Toledos are the real deal. You wont be disappointed.
Mike and Tanya are great – I’ve worked with them buying/selling homes 3 times now & I highly recommend them to everyone I know. They’re knowledgeable, responsive and very caring – it really matters to them that their clients are happy. They know the areas, and they worked tirelessly on my behalf throughout the entire process each time. You can’t go wrong with them!
Three words to describe the Toledos: “They are saint.” We were new buyers in the LA market and we spend over 27 months looking for the right place. Mike and Tanya hung in there with us the whole time. They helped us adjust our search as we got clearer about our needs and “must haves” and they never pressured us when houses ticked the boxes on paper – but didn’t wow us. In the end – we are living in the neighborhood of our dreams and in a house that we love. Can’t say enough about the professionalism, dedication and knowledge of Mike and Tanya.
Mike and Tanya are very knowledgable, responsive, and friendly. They made the entire selling process so easy that we didn’t have to worry about anything. They were very helpful to answer all our questions and provided professional advices during the selling process even though we were out of the country at that time. To top it all, the final closing price was above our listing price and expectation. We highly recommend them.
We came across Tanya Toledo by coincidence and don’t regret it a bit. She was extremely responsive and always did what she said she would. She was never pushy or in a hurry to show us prospective houses and took the time to explain what the possible pitfalls would be for the houses we were viewing. She has extensive experience. One of the things I liked about Tanya is her caring personality, she does not see her clients as temporary relationships but more as ongoing relationships.
If I am back in the market in the future there is no question who I will be calling to help me navigate the real state system. Thank you Tanya.
Victor and Esperanza
Thank you Mike and Tanya for helping us find our perfect home! We appreciate all your hard work in making a scary step in life so easy and comfortable. You where Never too busy to show us around, and helped us with all the right tools to make it happen. We love our home, thank you again for helping us make this dream a reality.
I’ve worked with Mike and Tanya on different levels. They are a great team. I met them flipping properties for an investment company and they are always on top of things. When I finally decide to purchase my own home I asked for there help and immediately we went into a short sale for a property in Granada Hills. I’ve seen and heard of the horror stories of going through a short sale, but I could never tell you what it’s like. The process was easy, fast and they were there everytime we needed help or had questions. I think it was within 45-60 days that we were handed the keys to our new home. Everything from looking at the house to getting the loan and completing the paperwork. A couple of years ago we worked with 2 different realtors and all we got was a lot of pressure to make offers on houses we didn’t care for. We’re glad we met Mike and Tanya. Thank you for helping us with our first house!
Fabian & Anna
Tanya and Mike Toledo are the best real estate team I have worked with. They are very professional and knowledgeable. They knew the market and developed the strategy for selling my condo. Not only did my condo sell for more than I expected, the closing process went smoothly due to the Toledo’s. They were there every step of the way to answer my questions (and there were a lot), give advice, stage my condo, meet with inspectors and appraisers, etc.. I felt at ease throughout the process knowing that they were there to oversee everything. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agent in the Los Angeles area.
Tanya helped me buy my condo 5 years ago. She is a true expert. She knows her resources and has a firm gasp on the LA real estate market. Her energy is endless and she worked tirelessly until we found the perfect place. The sale went smoothly and on time. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tanya and Mike for the past 2 years. My husband and I just closed on our first house and Tanya and Mike were there with us every step of the way. It has been an incredibly bumpy road for us trying to get into a house (due to outside circumstances) but Tanya and Mike have been solid, supportive, positive, knowledgeable, and 100% there with our best interests always in the forefront. They were incredibly patient with us as we were true property virgins and had to see every single house. They had recommendations and suggestions, but never pushed us into anything that we weren’t comfortable with. I cannot recommend the Toldedo’s enough. There is no way that we would have our house now if it wasn’t for them. Tanya and Mike go out of their way to make the process as smooth as possible. We are now doing construction on our new house and Tanya and Mike again have been there to make sure everything is going smoothly and to lend their expertise. I cannot thank them enough. If we ever buy or sell a house again we will 100% use the Toledo’s and I hope that you do to!
We have worked with the Toledo’s for almost five years. They have always put our interests first, advising on how to maximize the purchase or sale of residential real estate. They work tirelessly to build market knowledge and a reputation in the real estate community as ethical, hard-working client advocates.
Dealing with Tanya and Mike Toledo is the way it should be with your realtor. They are supportive, compassionate, and understand the business as well as the emotional roller coaster process of buying a home. We worked primarily with Tanya who is an awesome advocate to have on your team.
She appears sweet and young, which makes the opposing realtors think they have the edge. Boy are they in for a surprise when the negotiations begin because she has the experience and the skills to run circles around them all. It’s fun just to watch her and we are grateful she was on our team!
We met them six months ago at an open house. After visiting many open houses, it was the Toledo’s who really stuck out to us — and we ‘stuck’ with them!
We put our first offer in on a townhome that went to a bidding war. At their advice we chose to stop at a certain number. She was more concerned with my disappointment than the loss of the sale. The next offer she was able to negotiate quick enough to get the sellers to accept before the bidding war began. Due to outside issues, this escrow did not close. Again, her concern was for what was best for us.
Our new home escrow began smooth, although like most, there were challenges. Tanya knows how to play hardball when necessary with regard to credits on repairs, challenges with a very difficult seller, and protecting our contingencies.
Through all, she always was most concerned with us, our satisfaction, protecting our investment, and checking our emotions through this crazy process. When needed for back up, Mike was always there too. We will and already have recommended the Toledo’s to everyone we know!!! Thank God we found them.
Nobody will fight harder to find and negotiate the purchase of just the right property! They were patient but always kept the process moving forward. They gave valuable advice on each property, including a recommendation not to buy one home that had a disadvantage (they were right!). Ultimately we bought a great house, at a good price, and are happy. As a first-time buyer, I needed a lot of guidance on the process. They were always available and knowledgeable. Willing to get out and see any house – genuine curiosity and interest in neighborhoods, homes, and architecture. Friendly and fun to hang out with. Helpful above and beyond the call of duty, always. What else can I say? A friend who bought a home with Mike & Tanya recommended them, and I am recommending them too!
Mike and Tanya are a delightful and personable couple who represented us selling our home. Although the house house sold very quickly, Tanya was available to us and responsive to all calls and questions. We highly recommend them as listing agents.
Mike and Tanya helped us purchase our new home. They work well together as a team. As a buyer, you get to have the opinion of two separate agents 🙂 Also, if one of them is busy, the other one can step in!
They were out with us almost every weekend for 2-3 months looking at houses. There were a lot of bidding wars during this time, but they patiently worked with us writing offers almost every week. As part of our purchase, we had a rent back agreement with the sellers. They even helped us with the final walk through at the end of the rent back period, unlike the seller’s agent who seemed to disappear after the deal was closed.
