This Team Raised The Bar!

The NEW definition of real estate agent team: Vicky & Jeff! We just closed today on the sale of Marc’s parents penthouse condo in Pasadena. We have bought and sold homes and condos before, but Vicky and Jeff RAISED the “bar” 10 fold! They were exactly what we were looking for in agents. We didn’t live in the Pasadena area and really needed someone to “manage” the process and we took all their advice and the condo was sold within 10 days of being listed with multiple offers and was sold well over the asking price. They hired stagers, painters, electricians, cleaners, floor polishers and junk removal. They scheduled ALL the meetings and handled all their visits to the condo and kept to the budget. All the services were handled professionally with excellent results! They also “white gloved” the current tenants in the six unit building, which isn’t an easy accomplishment in high-end Pasadena. We would recommend them for any sale/purchase of a condo or home! A+ in our book!

Totally positive experience

Vicky and Jeff (and their entire crew) are absolutely the best!!  I live in Seattle and as a Trustee with a house for sale in La Canada, CA, they took care of everything, keeping me totally informed every step of the way.  It was a totally positive experience.  I would recommend them without any hesitation!!

The Best!

We have worked with Aason on three real estate transactions - a purchase, a sale and a lease. She was the best! She payed attention to every detail, responded quickly to any request, and advocated for us so that we were happy with our results every time. We look forward to working with her again in the future if the need arises, and we recommend her for anyone looking for a real estate professional.

They are brilliant

Vicky and Jeff Botsford are the absolute best real estate agents you could ever want to work with when you sell and/or buy your new home. I have heard horror stories from friends and relatives about agents who never returned calls or emails, never listened to their clients, missed deadlines, and botched up important paperwork. This NEVER happened with the Vicky and Jeff!!  They are brilliant at their jobs.  Knowledgeable, courteous, and professional, they devote themselves 110% to making a potentially stressful situation as smooth and anxiety-free as possible. We will definitely call Vicky and Jeff again the next time we are in the market for a new house.

Extremely Savvy

I am the owner of a small home renovation business. Over the past six years I have purchased four older homes through the Botsfords, renovated three of them and sold them for a profit. The fourth home was turned in 48 hours for a profit because of Jeff and Vicky having such terrific relationships with other agents. Jeff and Vicky Botsford were a big part of my success. They are so knowledgable of all the different neighborhoods in the Greater Pasadena area.Their experience helped me determine what properties would be the best candidates for turning a profit. They were honest and extremely savvy when it came to pricing a home. Jeff and Vicky would discuss with me the price differences in each neighborhood and what would be expected by buyers in terms renovations. They were always on my side and truly had my best interests at heart. I even recommended that my son and daughter-in-law hire them when they got serious about shopping for a home. They are THE BEST!

Worry Free

Worry-Free!  We have done two transactions with the Botsford Group.  They found us our dream home in 2008 and then listed a trust property for us in 2014.  Jeff and Vicky were recommended to us by a friend from Pasadena.  We had an immediate rapport with both of them.   Buying a house from Northern California had its challenges, especially when the house we loved had multiple offers within hours of hitting the MLS.  Jeff and Vicky are very well –connected.  Having grown up in Pasadena and San Marino gives them the advantage of knowing what is going on in each Pasadena neighborhood. Due to their professionalism and knowledge of the market, we were able to secure our home and beat out many other offers.  They were so helpful in meeting with inspectors, roofers, appraisers, etc. while we were still in Northern California.  The Botsfords make it so easy to get through what can be a daunting process.  When we needed to sell a family property, they were our first call.  We got 7 offers over asking and sold for 10% more than the asking price.  Once is escrow, the house needed permitting for past construction and Jeff managed the process for us.  He is very well versed in codes and restrictions in the area and was instrumental in helping us though the escrow.  We couldn’t have done it without them!!

Seamless Process

Vicky and Jeff Botsford are incredible. They found our perfect home before it came on 
the open market, and because of their solid relationship with the listing agent, were able 
to negotiate a purchase. Then with their market-pricing expertise, they listed and sold 
our current home, with multiple offers, in just one day. What a seamless process!

Very Professional

Aason was very professional, from the very beginning. We explained what we were looking for and she immediately came up with some leads. She made our search for a home, her search for our home! Aason is a very patient person and is looking for people to find the “right” house for them. She was always very responsive, either answering your call or had a quick email response and a time she could talk later. Her inside knowledge of the greater Pasadena area assisted us with our positioning.

The Consummate Professional

Aason was the consummate professional, very understanding, and constantly looking out for our best interests throughout the home buying process. My wife and I were moving from SF to LA, and Aason was incredibly easy in working around our busy travel schedules for weekend house tours. We finally bid on one house, and Aason was instrumental in working with all parties to make sure we got a price that made sense for us, while providing valuable advice in how to negotiate given the dynamics.

Complete Pros

Jeff and Vicky Botsford are complete pros who are whip smart and have been in the business for over 20 years.  But more than that, they are so great to work with.  So upbeat and fun.   Greg and I are so happy having them represent us.  On the buying side, they intelligently read the situation to know just how to present an offer.  And on the selling side, their rock solidness and experience make them the ones with whom you want to do business.
