Simply put, Maggie and her team are incredible!

I’m a second time buyer and my wife was new to the process. We are the type to thoroughly research anything we do. After narrowing down a short list from Yelp we did in person interviews with agents. Maggie blew us away from the moment we met her. She and her amazing team (shout out to Stefanie, Gina, and Jenifer!) were there for us every step. She knows literally every angle of this business inside and out. She’s friendly, patient, knowledgable, flexible, and can work with any budget, time frame, or changing family condition (we had a baby midway through the process and had to change gears).

Finding the home is just the beginning of where Maggie shines. In escrow, she is a boss. She knows how to negotiate price, has access to the top vendors and inspectors and knows how to utilize them all very well. Her goal is not to sell you a home. Her goal is for you to find the perfect home and get you the lowest price possible.

Her responsiveness is second to none. You will get answers quickly and thoroughly. Escrow can be stressful as anyone knows, but Maggie puts it on auto pilot for you. Documents can be digitally signed super quickly and she foresees anything that might go wrong way in advance. Trust me, you will save hours upon hours and a lot of money with Maggie.

Maggie stays with you before, during and after the home buying process. She’s available for all sorts of questions or recommends. We plan on renting our previous home and her list of vendors is second to none. They do great work at a great price. It’s reassuring to know we’ve got support moving forward.

Maggie is just an overall good person too. She’s super personable, empathetic, and fun. You never feel like a number. She holds annual client appreciation days. We took our daughter to her first pumpkin patch courtesy of Maggie and her team.

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Maggie is amazing. The end 🙂

Had the chance in August to work with Maggie and Gina to get my first ever property in orange county. Even the process seems long and frustrated, Maggie and her team did a great job on communicating to all parties and get the process moving quickly. They are professional and knowledgeable to handle different occasions or questions I have. It was very enjoyable to work with them! I highly recommend Maggie’s team to any first time home buyers!

Maggie helped us buy our first home!  We started the process with completely unrealistic goals and expectations but Maggie gently guided us to success!

We couldn’t have done it without her.  She and Stefanie waded through what was probably over a hundred properties with us as we searched for the perfect first home.  Maggie’s patience, investment knowledge, and expertise helped us to move forward with confidence even though buying a first home was intimidating and filled with hundreds of pages of reading (it might have just felt that way).

When making a huge financial investment you need to work with someone who is trustworthy, has good judgment and has expertise.  With Maggie we got all three things rolled up into a super sweet person to boot!

If your looking for someone to look after your best interest and help you find the right home and give you the resources to succeed, stop looking because you found her.  Save yourself some time and work with Maggie!

Short version: Maggie & her team (Gina, we love you!!) are the BEST! They are knowledgeable, honest, fantastic at what they do, and they will work so hard for you.

Long version: My husband and I knew we wanted to purchase our first home in Long Beach, but we had no idea what we were doing. AT ALL. So, I turned to Yelp, and found Maggie Ding. The reviews were amazing, so we took a leap of faith. I could not be happier that we did. We were paired up with Gina Delahoussaye, and to say we LOVED her would be an understatement. Gina made us feel so at ease. She is hilarious, she totally “got” us, and she was always, *always* on our side. She explained things in a way we could understand, she took so much care to make sure she knew what we wanted and what we disliked, and she drove down to Long Beach countless times from the West Side to do walk throughs with us. Home-buying was not a short process for us. We saw so many houses that just weren’t quite right. We coudn’t find the right layout. Or when we did, someone would swoop in and offer way over asking/our budget. When we did find a place we loved, and got all the way to signing the escrow paperwork, there were crazy complications with the seller’s financials. Gina and Maggie stepped up and advocated fiercely on our behalf. Finally, we found the perfect place to make our first home, and when we sealed the deal (including getting a new roof paid for by the sellers!) it genuinely felt like Maggie and Gina (and Stefanie, their office manager) were celebrating along with us. The level of support, expertise, and personal attention they provided to us in our home search was unreal. I’ll always be grateful for how much they helped us at this important time in our lives.

I have to say that buying a house is not an easy process, this is my first one here in the US and I learned that the road is long, stressful and full of obstacles. Thank god we had Maggie, she was so good at her job that it made it easy, really. Straight forward, no Bull S…, fun, understanding, good timing, she is so professional and knows so much that you feel in really good hands, period, that’s what you want in situations like this, to feel that the person that is working with you is covering your ass! Whenever I decide to sell my house, or look for a new one for me is a no brainer, Maggie Ding is queen. So glad our very close friends recommended her to us.

I found Maggie when I was looking for help buying my first home in the South Bay in 2013. Maggie was amazing! My husband and I *thought* we were very clear on what we needed — outdoor entertainment space, a great view, and a great deal! As it turns out, there are infinite other details that need to be considered when purchasing a home. Maggie helped us sort through all the available inventory of home and focus us on the homes that best met our needs. She was available *anytime* we needed her and her responses were quick and thoughtful. Her advice was always spot on and she was knowledgeable about city requirements that could affect which home we would purchase. Her assessment of the appropriate price for a property was always accurate. I could go on and on about all the wonderful attributes that make Maggie a great asset when you are buying a home! We will definitely be using her the next time we need to buy or sell a home.

We found Maggie on our 3rd real estate purchase, and we were finally able to see how it SHOULD be done. There was no comparison between our previous experiences and our experience with Maggie. She’s not afraid to think outside of the box when strategizing or collecting the information needed in order to make a wise move or decision, and she gets things done quickly and efficiently. In the end, we ended up purchasing our investment condo well below asking (which is rare these days in the CA Southbay).

Past experiences, I had to do much of the work myself which was like gaining another full time job. With Maggie it was completely different. Her and Stefanie owned the whole process and they paid attention to all the details so we didn’t have to.

To sum it up, I never referred anyone to any of the agents we had in the past. I tell EVERYONE I know who may be in need of an agent about Maggie because I have no doubt they will be well taken care of. In fact, our close friends are currently in escrow on a house with Maggie, and they have had nothing but glowing things to say about her throughout it all. Thanks for taking good care of us and our friends Maggie and team!

Maggie is so good in her profession. She knows her clients and helps them in a very professional way with personal touch. Maggie helped us to acquire a condo in west L.A. She was so thorough and helpful in every steps of the whole process.

We were lucky enough to work with Maggie when we purchased our home in Lunada Bay two years ago. We couldn’t have been more impressed with her and her team. Our house happens to be in the same neighborhood as her. She immediately took us “under her wing” and introduced us to other neighbors and friends and gave us all of the info we needed to settle in comfortably to the neighborhood and the schools…still two years later she is more than happy to give us advice or answer questions such as referrals for services. She is the best of the best; professional, friendly, funny and always on top of it. You cannot find a better realtor!

My wife and I purchased a home in Palos Verdes Estates with the help of Maggie in 2015.  She is smart, honest, professional and made sure the deal got done on time and on budget.  Home buying/selling can be the most stressful experience you go through and Maggie is someone you want on your side. It’s common during escrow that problems pop up.  Maggie and her team handled every wrinkle and kept the deal moving forward. If you are looking for a Real Estate agent, I can’t recommend Maggie highly enough.

Maggie and Gina are the absolute best! When I started looking to buy my first home, I didn’t know anything about the process, I barely even knew what I wanted. I tried meeting with a few random realtors that websites like Zillow suggest, but they were…not great. I got frustrated and literally Googled “Best realators in L.A.” and Maggie was at the top of the list, so I called.The difference between them and Maggie was like night and day. Maggie showed up with a binder containing information of every property we were going to visit that day, information on first time home buying process, and all the contact information I would need to continue working with her.
This was all very helpful but the part I liked the best about my experience with Maggie was the “no pressure” attitude. Maggie is not a salesman. She is not trying to get you into any random house as fast as she can. She works with you to find the home you will truly be happy in. I looked at houses with Maggie for TWO YEARS before I finally found the home I was head over heels for. I don’t know what other realtor would work with you for that long.
Once you put in a bid on a home you want, Maggie’s experience really shines. She has done all types home buying scenarios; Houses, Townhouses, Condos, HOAs, all loan types. She always has the answers to all my questions. I have owned my home for ~8 months and she is STILL more than happy to answer any questions I have. This kind of commitment cannot be found anywhere else.

Maggie is the very best in the business. We’ve worked with other realtors in the South Bay, and there is no comparison to Maggie’s level of professionalism, strategic planning, and connections within the real estate market. Her experience and top-notch team really set her apart, and I feel absolutely lucky to have found her. We have both sold and purchased homes through her – the process is always organized and flawless. I can’t say enough how much I recommend Maggie Ding.

Maggie is simply amazing. She is one of the hard working, diligent, and brilliant people I have ever worked with. Her commitment to her clients is exceptional – even while she was out of the country on vacation she still kept in touch with us over text and email, writing letters on our behalf to sellers, and setting up viewings. Even after our purchase, she has been an invaluable resource for home improvement/repair referrals. We got our dream home due to her hard work (and possibly magic), and we owe her a debt of gratitude. Put your trust in her and you will not be disappointed.

We were initially introduced to Maggie as a referral from a friend.

Skipping to the end of the story first, we loved working with Maggie and she helped us find the perfect house. We then referred her to work with 2 other couples who also ended up buying properties they love as well.

I was initially on the fence with working with Maggie because I have a close personal friend who is also a Realtor. But after our initial call, it became clear that Maggie was in a class of her own and also knew the West LA area very well (my friend didn’t). So we chose her and she helped us navigate the long and daunting journey of buying our first home.

Maggie and her team helps you feel confident in your decisions because they bring a lot of knowledge and expertise to the table. Maggie will patiently explain any part of the home-buying process to help you make the best decision for you.

Her network and connections can help you quickly tackle WHATEVER comes up along the way. There was not a single situation that they were not prepared for. They are a one-stop shop of answers.

Empathy. For the general person, buying a home is exciting but also scary. I most appreciate how Maggie dealt with these situations when they came up for us. We never felt rushed, or pushed to make a choice that we would regret later. Everything was explained clearly, multiple times if necessary, and we only took steps forward when we felt ready.

Maggie was so incredibly helpful and patient with us for our first home purchase.  Even when we put in a long shot offer on a historically significant house, she was able to give us great advice on how to make our offer more appealing.  We lost out on that one but she did eventually negotiate a good deal for us on another house in a great neighborhood.  She’s also been a fantastic resource for us in the following years since we bought and with her frequent client appreciation events, we still feel like she (and her family) are a part of our lives.

Maggie helped us both sell our first home and buy our second home – and she was outstanding! In selling our home she helped us in staging it and identifying small areas of home improvement that would go a long way towards selling (which then resulted in us selling the house in a bidding war for more than we had hoped for with only one weekend of showing).

In buying our house, she was very patient, showed us lots of options, and ultimately helped us get the house we plan to retire in for $100k less than asking.

Maggie was a great agent for us – always available, constantly communicating to us so we knew what was happening, very high energy and personable, and an excellent negotiator. We have recommended her to multiple friends because we were willing to put our reputation with hers.

Lastly – she also has some great contractors she can recommend. We did have one who was sub par but when we told her she fixed the concern immediately.

Highly highly recommend Maggie.

If you are looking for the opposite of these things you should find another realtor.  However, if any of these qualities are important to you, then you should reach out to Maggie and her team immediately.  You will quickly find yourself being welcomed to her extended family.

My wife and I worked with multiple real estate agents during our 2+ year hunt for a new home, and then we met Maggie.  When we first met she took the time to really understand who we were, and where we wanted to be as homeowners, taking into account our two toddlers and third child, who was on the way at the time.  She asked all of the right questions and had us feeling like we were in capable hands, all before we looked at our first home together.

Armed with the information we provided, she streamlined the search process and narrowed down the homes we viewed, focusing on the priorities that both my wife and I had expressed to her during 1:1 conversations.  She magically fused our “wants” and provided us with options that were spot on!  There were no “throw-aways”, and neither of us ever felt like our time was being wasted.

She did not stop there.  She was with us all the way through the process, offering assistance whenever and however we needed.  If we needed her to be more involved it did not feel like a chore to ask, nor did it feel like a burden.  She was always there, wearing her trademark smile.

On the other side of the process, Maggie was also instrumental in helping us to sell our home.  She took the extra steps that many other Realtors don’t (but should), like having  professional photographs taken, staging the house in a way that allowed for prospective buyers to envision their own lives in the home, and more.

Maggie’s hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off – our listing looked amazing and we received multiple offers before our first Open House.  Our home went under contract just a few days after hitting the market, and Maggie was once again there through every step of the closing process.  It could not have been a more pleasant experience.

A couple of years later, and I am proud to say that we are still in touch with Maggie – not because we are looking to sell our home, but because we made a new friend in the process.  We’ve recommended Maggie to everyone we know who is looking to buy a home.  She is a true professional and a genuinely nice person to know.

You’d be hard pressed to find a better Realtor, and when you reach out to her be sure to ask about the Thanksgiving Pies!!!

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Maggie twice now, and both times were a wonderful experience.  Maggie and her team are helpful and professional throughout the entire home buying process.  We always feel like she has our best interest at heart and will be there to answer any questions we may have.  We’ll be living in our dream home soon, but should things change in the future, we’ll definitely be working with Maggie again.

Thank goodness my roommate recommended Maggie to my wife and I 10 years ago!  Within two weeks of starting our search, we’d entered escrow on our first house (at well below asking).  We enjoyed working with Maggie and her team so much through the process, and we’ve since recommended her to so many of our friends, she’s and her family are like… well, family.

We were first time home buyers and grateful to have her guidance throughout the process.  She walked us through listings to feel us out, sent us out for a weekend afternoon of viewings, and met us at the conclusion to see what we’d liked.  As it happened, we’d liked the last one of the day – where she met us.  When we told her we wanted to make an offer, she coached us through every step of the process and helped us with all the details – making sure we were well taken care of.  We made an aggressive offer that to my astonishment was eventually accepted WITH all our stipulations!

Our neighbors have since forgiven us (they all have identical units so we set the price for a while), and thanks to Maggie’s advice, we’ve been enjoying our first house for 10 years now.

I’d recommend Maggie to anyone with no hesitation.  She’s as good as it gets in the Southbay, full stop.

If you are a first time home buyer, Maggie would make you wonder why people say buying a house is stressful because she and her team make the whole process so easy that you may not even get to experience any stress!

It wasn’t the first house I ever purchased so I know what it is like working with other real estate agents; and Maggie is the best I ever worked with. Honestly, because of my prior experience with other agents, I kept wonder when things are going to go wrong or get stressful for me during the home purchasing process with Maggie; but it never did! Maggie was on top of everything and I love that she always gave us a heads up on what to expect next. Furthermore, even though we’ve lived in our house for awhile now, whenever we have  questions and ask her, she is always happy to help out.

Maggie helped us bought a fixer in a wonderful location. Throughout the whole painful remodeling process (because remodeling a house in real life is nothing like what is shown on HGTV!!!), I kept telling my husband that I wish Maggie is a contractor too so I can hire her to remodel our house. Since Maggie makes buying a house so painless, I bet she probably can make remodel a house not so stressful too.

Maggie, Gina, and Stefanie are beyond fantastic. I couldn’t be more grateful to all of them as I type this review sitting in my new home.

Flashback to about 4 months ago.

I had slowly started the search again to purchase a new property. As a first time home buyer, I had somewhat dipped my toes in the pool a few other times before — even submitting an offer on another property about a year ago. Prior to Maggie, I had worked with a couple of other realtors and had grown frustrated that it was as if I could never get beyond the “submit an offer” step. Then, I made the fateful decision to check Yelp for a new realtor and the rest is history.

After a particularly enlightening phone call with Maggie and her team, she effortlessly broke down what I was missing in my last home searches — namely, a superiorly qualified realtor. There were a couple of other realtors that I also had introductory phone calls with and there really was no comparison. Her detailed explanation of what set her apart from the competition was eye-opening and I knew I would be blessed to have her on my side.

I decided to move forward with her and they immediately got to work.

Their attention to detail and excellent communication skills were very much appreciated. Day or night, weekend or weekday, if I had a question, if there was an issue, I knew I would hear from them quickly. In all of my past home searches, I had never experienced anything like this before.

Once we settled on a property, both Maggie and Gina walked me through what was shaping up to not be the easiest purchase. The buyer’s market is insanely competitive at my price point and they were upfront about the steps we should take for a fighting chance. Because of their brilliance in suggesting we be proactive on a particular condo, we managed to get the upper hand over the rest of the competition and submit an offer before it even went to market.

Wow.

It has been a little over a month since I moved in. I still wake up every day somewhat in shock that this is where I get to lay my head and build a life for myself. I know I would not be living here if it were not for these exceptionally talented women and I can’t thank them enough.

If you are still reading by this point, please stop. Pick up the phone and give them a call! Go get your dream home already.

From the first time she showed us homes to when we got the keys to our house, I knew right away that Maggie is AMAZING! She was professional yet friendly, responsive and thorough. I have recommended her to many of my friends because I know what excellent service she provides.

My ears perk up whenever I hear people talk about buying or selling real estate. Why? Because I have the perfect realtor and I always want friends to know about Maggie Ding.

I bought my first condo without Maggie. My first realtor was fine, but as a first-time buyer, there were a lot of things I didn’t know or understand. Looking back, there were certainly items that my first realtor could have pushed for me, but she didn’t. She was simply a middle person in order to purchase the condo.

Maggie came highly recommended when my husband and I started to think about selling the condo and buying a home. I was instantly impressed by Maggie’s quick responses to my calls and emails. At our first meeting, she pulled out a folder and showed us all of the research she did on our condo without us asking for the info. Her former business background was another strong selling point for me. And her honest and friendly manner told me that I could ask any question without a problem. My husband had never gone through buying real estate, where this would be my second go-around. Her excellent answers to both of our questions told me that Maggie was perfect to help us with selling and buying.

Honestly, we should have done our due diligence and interviewed other agents. But I felt so strongly about Maggie’s skills right off the bat that I didn’t want to waste my time. And I’ve never regretted that decision.

We unexpectedly found ourselves with the daunting task of finding our house first and then realizing that we needed to sell the condo right away. Maggie was incredible in helping us do both at the same time. Her network of inspectors and contractors helped us with the house while photographers and design folks helped us spruce up the condo. The condo looked so good that I almost wanted to stay (not really but it did look awesome). She was wonderful throughout the entire process of buying and selling. I think I would have been a mess if I didn’t have trust in Maggie’s abilities.

Bottom line is that Maggie is a SMART savvy businesswoman who is going to fight for you. We asked her questions about listing price for the condo, about negotiating the price for the house, what we should ask for from the sellers, etc. She gave her valuable input and once we decided on something, I was confident that she was going to negotiate like crazy on our behalf.

I’m sure she had a ton of other clients she was taking care of when she was dealing with us, but we felt like we were the only ones. Maggie was always quick to respond to any call or email. I never had to follow up with another reminder for her to respond to me.

I can’t tell you how many friends and associates I’ve sent to Maggie. And every time, people have told me how great she is.  She’s amazing and if there was enough room I would write another 50 pages about her! Maggie Ding is definitely one of the BEST realtors in the region!

If I could give Maggie more stars I would! Maggie and her colleague Gina and Stefanie helped us purchase our very first property and we couldn’t be happier to have worked with them. They are super responsive, extremely reliable and exceeds expectations in all categories! They really did make the process as easy and painless as possible for us.

We were so happy with them that we ended up referring them to my friend who also recently closed an escrow with their help. If you are looking for agents that will be there for you each step of the way and will help save you money or look out for your best interests, that’s exactly what Maggie and her team do!

I live on the east coast and needed to sell my mother’s condo in California.  I expected to come across challenges as a result of the distance, however Maggie and her team made the sale easy and stress free. Maggie was professional, responsive, proactive, and kept me informed of the status at every turn. Her network of contacts and her professional advice were invaluable throughout the process. I would recommend Maggie to any person selling/purchasing a home, and would definitely use her again should the need arise!
Thank you Maggie!

Maggie helped my family buy the first home together AND helped us sell our first house as well. We can’t imagine a better outcome!

Maggie and her team are professional, quick, attentive, and reliable. I find it absolutely crucial to have an agent that you can trust, bounce ideas off of, and an agent with A+ resources. Every last person that Maggie recommended were just like her and her team. I’m so impressed. This made our lives easy and the process a smooth one.

I’ve referred Maggie many times and everyone always had the same positive experiences. If you’re looking for an excellent agent, Maggie will help you navigate through it all and ensure you’re taken cared of by the best!

Our family has lived on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for numerous years and we have had several experiences with different South Bay realtors.  I consulted with Maggie regarding the selling of my mother’s home.  She immediately told me to not accept the advice offered by other agents whose opinions I solicited and told us to sell our home “as is” or those who shared it would take a substantial amount of money to fix up our 13 year old home.   Within days she had bids from different contractors regarding how to make the home more marketable.  The contractors had a great working relationship with Maggie and their fee structure was great.  The cost to make our home look “brand new” was half as much as other agents told us it would cost.

All work on the home was done quickly and professionally and within weeks we were able to list our home.  The home had multiple bids within the first days of listing (immediately after our first open house) and we ultimately accepted an offer substantially over our listed price.
Maggie and her staff (Gina and Stefanie) were a pleasure to work with.  All communications throughout the preparation for sale and subsequent escrow process were easy and helpful.

A side note, all the contractors that Maggie had employed to work on our home from the
flooring people, painter, handyman and photographer all said Maggie was the one realtor that they most look forward to working with.  That she is a consummate professional and is as knowledgeable about their work and what they can offer as if she had been in their business for years.  What she recommends is not merely her opinion but based on thorough knowledge of what is current, available and would add value over merely just spending money.
“In Maggie I trust” was the line I often ended my email communications  with Maggie.
You should trust her as well with your property.  You will be VERY pleased with the results.

Maggie is the very best in the business. We’ve worked with other realtors in the South Bay, and there is no comparison to Maggie’s level of professionalism, strategic planning, and connections within the real estate market. Her experience and top-notch team really set her apart, and I feel absolutely lucky to have found her. We have both sold and purchased homes through her – the process is always organized and flawless. I can’t say enough how much I recommend Maggie Ding.

Maggie and Stefanie are absolute pros. I just sold a 4 bedroom in Signal Hill, and couldn’t have done it at the price we got without her guidance and hard work. From day 1 to the very end, Maggie’s help was invaluable and she laid out the strategy, always gave options along the way, navigated through some tricky circumstances with buyers, and provided sound judgement and advice to get the outcome we wanted.

What you want out of an agent is someone you can TRUST. Maggie (and team) builds trust because she’s always available – all days and all hours, constantly communicates all updates via email and phone. She’s highly intelligent, responsive, and works tirelessly to get the outcome you want achieved.

I can’t thank her enough for making such a potentially stressful event go smooth so we could have peace of mind in managing other parts of our lives.

If there’s such thing as a perfect agent, Maggie would be her.

Recently worked with Maggie to sell our condo in El Segundo. I recommend her very highly! She is a rare combination of a realtor who is: very competent, approachable, responds very fast, has her clients best interests in mind while being honest and very diligent. I could not have expected anything better!
She handled the various stages of the process very smoothly and to perfection. And she did all this without us being in town (we live several hours away). This included:
– fixing up the unit and getting it painted prior to putting it on the market. She has an array of handymen/painters etc she works with, who are professional, very reasonably priced and did an excellent job!
– interviewing various staging companies and finding the right one to do the job
– taking professional pictures of the unit
– well timed open houses and marketing the unit outside of open houses through her network
– working with home owners association and escrow company through the entire process
– she even went out at midnight (on her own initiative) to oversee an emergency plumbing situation in the unit!
– excellent negotiation with the buyers.

She lives up to her phenomenal reviews on yelp!!

So thankful Maggie and her team is there during the whole stressful situation of selling the current place and buying a new place without moving into somewhere in the transition period.

Maggie’s team is amazing!  The listing pictures were perfectly done by a professional photographer, and Maggie is just the best when it comes to negotiation.

Gina is very patient and she answered my millions emails.  She is very knowledgeable and knows the areas very well.  I love checking out houses with her as her trained eyes usually point out so much stuffs I would not noticed.

Stephanie keeps all the paperworks, appointments in check so we will not miss anything.

Couldn’t ask for a better realtor.

I super recommend Maggie and Gina. They walked us through our first home buying process with so much patience they deserve a reward! It took us a while to get a house but they stuck with us and found us our dream home. They’re very responsive and respond back to emails or texts right away.

We had no idea what we were doing since this was our first house but they walked us through everything and made sure we understood what was going on. Really can’t praise them enough for all the work they put in. They’re fantastic!

We just recently bought our first home in Redondo Beach, and it would not have been at all possible without the terrific work of our agent, Maggie Ding.

Maggie is an absolutely fantastic real estate professional, and could not have been better to work with. We got a fantastic house at a fantastic price that we would not have even known about without Maggie’s relationships and connections, expertise, persistence and smarts. We are thrilled with our experience and eagerly and aggressively recommend Maggie and her company to anybody in the area, or moving to the area.

Furthermore, Maggie strikes a great balance of being both very personable and fun to deal with, while at the same time being extremely professional and direct about business. She held our hand throughout the process, but also taught us about the industry so we knew more and more as it went on.

Let me first say that Maggie has been the best real estate agent I have worked with. She always puts her customers’ interest above and beyond anything else. She is also very professional, works very efficiently and responds to emails and calls often within the day.

My wife and I purchased our first home three years ago and we were lucky to have Maggie and her team as our agent and advisers through the process. We began house hunting with a different agent but did not feel our needs were attended to. We found Maggie on Yelp and starting from the very first conversation, she set her self apart from other real estate professionals through her ability to truly take the time to understand our needs and teach us about the home-buying process. We lived three years in the condo we purchased and could not be happier. We certainly have and will continue to recommend Maggie and her team to friends and family and will be contacting them in the future for any real estate needs!

Am I crazy for picking my realtor on Yelp? Maybe, but it was the best decision my husband and I could have made! This review is long over due, we have been living in our house for over 2 years now but we occasionally still ask Maggie about things and she is just as responsive as when we were using her to help us get our house! Maggie always made us feel like we were the only clients she had no matter the home value we were seeking! I truly believe she treats all clients equal and never made us feel less important since we were first time home buyers and needed a bit of handholding. She was an excellent negotiator and real client advocate. She can translate all the real estate jargon and help to make sure you as the buyer or seller really understand what you are getting, as well as future potential positives and negatives. We never felt like we were being sold a bill of goods just so she could make a commission like some other realtors. She was honest, trustworthy, reliable and very responsive.

Maggie is someone I would do business with again and again and would recommend her with no hesitation. She is such a gem and if you get to work with her you will know exactly what myself and the other reviewers are talking about! Thanks Maggie-you’re the best!

Yes, it’s true what other people have wrote that Maggie is smart, willing to work at different hours to accommodate our schedule, has wonderful communication skills, among other impressive skills.  What I would like to add is that Maggie is very compassionate and humble.  She treats everybody with respect.  When my husband and I first approached this super star over a year ago to help us purchase our first home, we told Maggie that we did not have the kind of money to buy the big and luxurious houses in the South Bay area.  Maggie simply showed us her willingness to help us and guide through everything.

Actions speak louder than words.  On the first apartment that we tried to purchase, the owner imposed very strict deadlines in order to consider our offer.  Maggie and her partner (Lisa, who Maggie recommended to work with us in order to expand our search area), and staff worked so fast and efficiently.  We were amazed at the speed that the paperwork was done.  At the end, we were sad to find a big defect on the apartment, so we had to cancel our offer.

Then, on the 2nd offer, we found a townhouse (Thank God it turned out to be so much better than our first choice).  Again Maggie worked so hard to make things happen.  We encounter a few hard obstacles… like the appraiser valued the townhouse at a much lower price than the asking price!!!  No matter! Maggie and company were up to the challenge to make the deal happen.  Still, all parties were a little concerned that the deal was going to fell through.  That’s when I got really sick.  So, both my husband and I were concentrating on getting me back to health.  Well, the seller’s realtor was trying to pressure Maggie and giving her a hard time because he thought that we were just trying to make time to get out of the deal.  Even Maggie was not able to contact us because I was so sick.  I just have to say… Maggie was so strong and stood up for us! taking all the heat.  We felt so embarrassed to put her in that situation!  But, Maggie never gave up on us!  Thank you Maggie for being so caring and professional!

It’s being a year and a half since we have been happy in our new home.  We Thank God for bringing Maggie, Lisa and their team into our lives!  God Bless You!

Maggie helped me sell my 2 bedroom condo in Playa Del Rey in 2015 while I was living in San Francisco. I’m not stranger to real estate and have dealt with many agents in the buying and selling process. I’m not unreasonable but I have high expectations for people doing their jobs well. Throughout the whole process, Maggie was friendly, smart, helpful, organized, proactive, HONEST, practical… anyone still reading this?

What I appreciated the most was how well Maggie listened to me and was able to adapt to my style. I didn’t need as much hand holding as a first-time buyer but I like to know what’s going on and make my own decisions. Maggie got that and was able to keep me updated, be straight to the point while giving me her advice based on her own experiences while listening to decisions. I felt like my opinions and decisions were respected. I ended up receiving multiple offers and accepting an offer that was above my asking price. She even organized an easy to read comparison of all the offers that was EXTREMELY appreciated.

It was a real pleasure working with Maggie and I’m immensely grateful to her for making the process so stress-free for me. I just wish I had the opportunity to meet her in person.

We closed escrow today. Woohoo! Thanks to Maggie and team. I don’t review on Yelp but because I found Maggie through Yelp, I think it’s important that I share how awesome and hardworking she is, for others who need to find an agent in the near future.

I’m very picky when it comes to choosing a doctor, a dentist, etc. and Maggie is the equivalent when you want to find an agent you can trust, believe in, do the work for you and even want to call your friend.

We tried to sell our condo 2 years ago, and our first agent was just not doing the work for us, like she’s missing in action. So we had to change agent and I found Maggie through Yelp. But after a few weeks, my husband and I decided to take it off the market because of our little one (Sorry about that Maggie). But we were very sure this time that the kids are ready so who else do we call but Maggie.

The amount of commission Maggie will get from selling our home is nothing to the work she provided, including the weekends and late nights where Maggie gets calls, negotiations and what not. She’s very good at negotiating by the way. She made sure we didn’t just give away everything to the buyer.

Maggie also made the closing date shorter. So we close today exactly on my birthday. How cool is that, she has no idea though but that makes it a double celebration for us. Now if only we can win the lottery tonight to make it a triple celebration and increase our budget for the house hunting part, haha.

Thank you thank you Maggie. You are awesome!!!! Like mighty awesome. Big hugs, we are so happy. You made everything possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Maggie did it again! She helped us buy our first home, and late last year she helped us sell it. With the holidays approaching, it was not an ideal time to put a home on the market. Maggie insisted that we get it into shipshape BEFORE Thanksgiving. It was a challenging deadline to meet, but she pushed us to do it. And it was absolutely the right move. The first people who saw the house ended up buying it. What a relief!

Maggie helped us every step of the way. She made what could have been a highly stressful process feel relatively easy. She answered every question we had, no matter how dumb they seemed. She was available to us almost anytime, day or night. I give Maggie and her team the highest possible recommendation if you’re looking to buy or sell a home in the South Bay or anywhere in L.A.

THEY. ARE. ROCK. STARS.!  I strongly recommend Maggie and her team for all real estate needs.  Don’t waste your time talking to other realtors.  Maggie and her team are the real deal and deliver superior service:

– Super friendly and patient (even when I asked redundant questions)
– Super timely, responsive and efficient – they get things done!
– Super knowledgeable and savvy in every aspect of the sales process
– Conscientious and works hard to represent your best interests and advocate for YOU
– On top of latest market trends and competition
– Has a network of professionals/preferred providers

Most of the Yelp reviews relate to buying homes.  I am happy that I can offer a review from a selling perspective.  Maggie and Gina helped me sell a family member’s house in the Baldwin Hills area.  They were honest about the condition of the house, list price and how to strategically market the property.  It took the family a few months to ready the house before listing, but Maggie kept in touch with me during those trying months.  We didn’t make it easy for her.  When Maggie saw that I was struggling with family members, she patiently complied with special requests in order to us to agree on listing parameters:  sell AS IS, market to investors only, no open houses to general public (aka nosy neighbors), no for sale sign, etc.  Just as Maggie anticipated, the house sold quickly and with multiple offers!  It wasn’t easy navigating the family drama but Maggie and Gina made the selling process as easy as possible.

I don’t live in Los Angeles which is where the house is located.  No problemo!  Maggie can and will sell your house!  She also aligns herself with a great team of professionals, including title and escrow officers, to get the property sold in an orderly and efficient manner.

This is my first ever review i am writing about someone in my life, about Maggie and her team.

Maggie is like a real estate book for anyone out there who want to purchase a house/home. With her vast knowledge she proactively educates buyers in every step of home purchase and not only that even after closing she still sends us tax reminders as well.  I can’t expect more than this from any agent. Our whole home buying process completed within short period of 70 days.
Maggie team: Gina and Stefanie both are wonderful persons, both were very helpful in our home process. Gina is like “Go getter”, and she organized  whole inspections and all other relevant meetings. Whole team has best performing and negotiating skills.
TEAM WORK.

While home processing, whole team were replying to our emails within minutes, where me and my wife were really amazed with their work and cooperation. With all their support and dedication we became first time home buyers.
We will give them 100 our of 100 stars. Re/max Maggie team is the best of the best. Me and my wife recommend Maggie team to everyone out there.
Especially Maggie and Gina, you guys are the best of best!!!!!!

Maggie came highly referred to us from 2 separate friends.  She was billed as “an extremely hard worker”, and now having gone through our first home buying experience with her, I can only add that this is a HUGE understatement!  Maggie’s professionalism, organization, responsiveness, real estate IQ, I repeat responsiveness and top-notched team of professionals (including both her assistant Stefanie as well as her network of professionals–loan providers, inspectors, plumbers, roofers, handymen, etc.) sets her apart from other agents.  Ours was not a straight-forward purchase, having to deal with potential mold issues, and could have easily fallen through or turned contentious with the Sellers.  Instead, Maggie carefully and strategically negotiated on our behalf and ultimately got us 100% of our ask from the Sellers (btw, she ran rings around the listing agent, teaching both us and him along the way).

Maggie’s white-glove service does not end with your home purchase.  She and Stefanie continue to check-in with us, offering any kind of friendly assistance from neighborhood info (childcare, amenities, professional services, etc.) to client appreciation activities (she recently held a pumpkin patch event for the kids).  She serviced us around the clock, so much so that we felt as though we were her only clients (except that she has many others, you just would not know it).  In summary, I cannot say enough good things about Maggie and what she did and continues to do for our family.  I recommend her to all of my friends and family!

We found out we were being relocated to the area and quickly found Maggie (and her wonderful staff) here on yelp to help us find a home in the South Bay area.  Right from the beginning Maggie spent quite a bit of time discussing what it was exactly we were looking for.  She quickly set us up a MLS portal account account so we could virtually shop for homes, during this time Maggie updated our saved listings with thoughtful information.  We contacted Maggie several times during this period to modify our search and direct us to additional neighborhoods.  When we arrived in LA our number one priority was to find a home, Maggie blocked of several hours over consecutive days so that we could see every property on our list.  Maggie negotiated well on our purchase price.

Maggie and her staff were extremely friendly, helpful and thoughtful throughout the entire process, We always felt more like a friend than a client.  It’s now been a couple months since we closed on our home and Maggie is still there for us whenever we have a question or issue.

I hope we don’t have to purchase another home anytime soon, but if we do we’ll surely call Maggie first.

As first time home buyers, my husband and I had no idea where to start when it came to finding a real estate agent, so we figured if Yelp had rarely led us astray with food choices, it might be a solid place to begin our search for someone to help us spend all the money we have in the world and then some. 🙂

In total, we interviewed four real estate agents. We met three in a row in person and had a phone call with Maggie later the same day. Even by phone Maggie blew the others out of the water and impressed us from the start. She is the perfect blend of patience, straight-forwardness, honesty and kindness that assured us that we could ask all the stupid questions in the world and not feel embarrassed. In fact, she encouraged us to ask (and re-ask) questions and never made us feel badly that we knew so little about real estate.

After about a month of hitting the open house circuit hard, too many chocolate chip cookies to mention, and a few emails about a property here and there (all of which Maggie helped us realized we only liked because of the staging – we’re such rookies!), we finally fell head over heels in love with a house in Westchester. We texted Maggie as soon as we stepped out of the house – we were literally still parked outside of the house – to see what she thought of it. As usual, she texted us back immediately and we were so happy when she agreed that we had found a gem. Maggie warned us though – first time home buyers rarely get the first house they put an offer in on, but this would be good practice for us. So, with that in mind, we started moving fast! She contacted the seller’s agent and by the next day, a Monday, Maggie had helped us figure out an offer that was not only competitive, but a number that we felt comfortable with. If you can believe it Yelpers, that same evening the sellers and their agent called Maggie to give a verbal that they wanted to sell us the house. We signed with them and opened escrow the next day, a Tuesday, and that Friday had a slew of inspections on the house (Maggie pulled some strings to get her team of amazing vendors in ASAP). Escrow closed without incident, and all of a sudden – we are homeowners!

Now, settled into our new home, it is kind of crazy to think that so many things had to go right for us to buy our dream house and have the entire process be so, so smooth. But working with Maggie is what got us here – she helped build our confidence as home buyers to see and understand what we liked, what we didn’t like, what to look out for, things to ask ourselves that we would have never thought to ask. She held our hands through every step, every document, every question and concern and made us feel like her #1 clients. We are so grateful to Maggie (and her right-hand woman Stefanie!) for everything they’ve done for us – if you can believe it, we look forward to years down the line going through this whole process again when we’re ready to upgrade! 😉

We just closed escrow with the best realtors EVER!
Where do we start? We are first time buyers and let’s just say finding the perfect home, lender or even a realtor may be one of the hardest things ever. My hubby found Maggie on YELP, and boy… were these reviews spot on and helpful.
Maggie and Gina took care of us since day 1 and through all of the bumpy roads during this closing. They still managed to pull it through and helped us through the tough storms with our lender and everything else that was interfering with our closing.
Maggie told us since DAY 1 that she didn’t recommend our leader due to his lack of communication and other reasons but let’s not get there. However, we didn’t want to redo the whole leader process again so we just stuck with him and let’s just say she was RIGHT! Using our lender was the biggest mistake ever!!! If she refers you to her Lender, PLEASE LISTEN TO HER. They are 100% honest with everything!!!!
Gina Gina Gina, she was one amazing person, whatever homes we wanted to see, she was right there next to us to show us and tell us if she feels what she would think is best for us. After seeing Gina almost every day, we became close and I love them both!!!! HOPEFULLY, they would love to babysit our kids one day? LOL
Sadly to say, we are going to miss talking and emailing them every day since they became more than our realtors but our friends. Best realtors hands down and I would recommend them to ANYBODY! I PROMISE you will NOT regret it.

Love you guys and we will stick with you guys until the end!!!!!! XOXO

Need a REALTOR? STOP HERE!!!!
-FRIENDLY
-HONEST
-STRAIGHT TO THE POINT
-RESPONSIVE
-FAST
-CARING
-LOVING
JUST PERFECT!!!!!!!!!

Maggie was referred to us by our loan agent.  it turns out they were both excellent.  She set us up right away with a portal to her MLS site, which was better than zillow in some ways and she could share our notes and searches even. over the next couple weeks she spent time to get to know our likes and desires and pointed us in directions to help us find a good fit.  She was always timely and a great guide for us as first time home-buyers.  we found and she helped us close on a house very quickly, warning us against common issues and giving insight to the property which we would have been clueless about. she was a great partner and guide during this important process, and so thoughtful to what we were going through psychologically even.

I highly recommend Maggie Ding! She is an amazing real estate agent. She just helped me and my husband buy our first home. There were over 20 offers on the property, and Maggie helped us to succeed with our bid and then navigate what could have been an overwhelmingly complex process for first time buyers. Our house was not a huge ticket item in LA’s inflated real estate market, but Maggie treated us with utmost respect and care regardless. She is really dedicated to serving her clients, and it is clear that she loves what she does because she does it so well and with such good humor and passion. Anyone would be lucky to have her representing them.

Are you in the market to buy a home and are completely frazzled and overwhelmed by neighborhoods, options, processes, school districts, taxes and more? Do you wish you had a fairy god mother to guide you through all the confusion, find your dream home for you, AND double as Google for any and all of your future needs? Then Maggie is the person for you.

I was new(ish) to LA, a little under 1.5 years here after moving out west from NY and was in the market to buy a home but overwhelmed with where to even begin. I spoke with a couple of real estate agents through friend referrals, but was unimpressed with their response time, their market knowledge and general vibe. I took to Yelp, found Maggie based on her stellar reviews, and a quick email (which she immediately responded to) and a phone call later, I knew she was the fairy godmother I was looking for. Below are the reasons why:

1) Maggie is super responsive. She is literally available 24/7/365 via email, text, phone all the time. No question too big or small, she is very attentive to all of your questions, and intuitively knows to dig deeper and ask questions to pinpoint answers and concerns you weren’t even fully aware that you had.

2) Maggie is super knowledgeable about real estate. She knows EVERYTHING about neighborhoods, homes and real estate. She has insider knowledge on who owned which property prior, which roads are busy vs not, when homes were renovated (even if it’s a tiny detail on when they had carpeting removed!), different property tax ranges by neighborhoods, and is practically psychic on home layouts without needing even step foot in the house. The list goes on and on and on. She literally knows everything.

3) Maggie is super patient. As a first time home buyer and a control freak, I naturally had no less than 9,340,291 questions about anything and everything. Maggie would always take the time to patiently explain everything to me, and not in mumbo jumbo jargon terms, but in ways that are super digestible and easy to understand, even for the newest of newbies to the homebuying process.

4) Maggie is super honest. She does not bullsh*t or beat around the bush. She will tell you like it is, from a very objective perspective. She is never pushy or rushes you, and is engaged and invested in talking through all of the potential situations, options and concerns to find the best, custom-fit solution for you.

5) Maggie is a super resource. She has an answer or a contact for EVERYTHING. It literally got to the point during our home buying process where I would substitute Maggie for Google, and say to my husband, “let me Maggie that for you”. No exaggeration, I have gotten everything from recommendations for dim sum in South Bay, to a house painter, to an accountant, to a car lease agent to a housekeeper, all from Maggie! Her results are legit stronger than your favorite search engine.

6) Maggie is super fast. Like me, she talks fast, she thinks fast, she types fast, she moves fast and she gets sh*t done. Because at the end of the day, we’re all very busy people right? And ain’t nobody got time for that….

7) Maggie is a super good person. Honestly, as a human, I simply want to surround myself with good people, and Maggie is definitely good peoples. Even though my house buying adventure ended more than 7 months ago, I don’t even think twice to hit up Maggie with any random questions I have (even today!), and I know that I will get an immediate, heartfelt and genuine response from her (which I did, within minutes of texting her!). She honestly cares for you not just as a client, but as a valued friend.

Based on all of the reasons above, Maggie is akin to a fairy god mother, and everyone needs one of those in their life! So if you’re looking for a stellar real estate agent, a caring friend and a Google replacement, then Maggie is the one for you!!

If you’re looking for an agent who cares for her clients Maggie is the go to hands down. The hubby and I just bought our first home and have had the smoothest ride during this emotional yet exciting time in our lives. Maggie was available all the time for all the concerns and questions we had in our search for our first home. She responded in a timely manner and went above and beyond any realtor we’ve heard about. Her assistant Stephanie is great as well!! If Maggie was in a meeting etc. Stephanie was just as responsive as Maggie answering any questions in a timely fashion. If your looking to purchase a home and want an AWESOME agent Maggie Ding is the one you want on your side!!

This review is long overdue, but still worth mentioning!
One word to describe Maggie: Awesome! She and her assistant (Stephanie) are extremely great to work with. They helped me make my first home purchase in Torrance, at a good deal too! Maggie is extremely knowledgeable and always answered my questions quickly and in a comprehensive manner which is always appreciated.
When we were looking, the price of my house was out of my price point. However, right when the price lowered she quickly got on top of it, made an offer and secured it for me. It was like magic! She also made escrow process easy and straightforward. I made a slight error during the escrow process but she fixed it quickly.
Working with her definitely makes home buying stress free. Great communicator, tries her best to address her clients needs and was always there when I needed assistance (even months after the sale has been completed). If I purchase another home, I absolutely wouldnt hesitate to contact her again!

My hubby and I just bought our first home and we did it with a badass agent!  I cannot say enough about how awesome Maggie is.  She has a great team, who always communicated with us really quickly.  Her assistant, Stefanie is on top of it!  Maggie and her team always got back to us quickly.  We were always emailing, texting, talking….it was great, and we learned a ton from Maggie through this process.

We did quite a bit of research before we landed on Maggie, and meeting her in person sealed the deal.  She was exactly what we wanted in a realtor.  Maggie is a no-BS, straight shooter, who cares about her clients.  Whenever we were together, it felt like I was just hanging out with a girlfriend.  She kept it real, and I can’t say enough about how important that is during this process.  She asked the tough questions, played devil’s advocate for us, and often reminded us when we were being unrealistic (which was often…hahaha).

We were living overseas when we began this process, about a year ago, and Maggie was always great to take our calls at odd hours, and answer our emails quickly.  Working in different time zones was a challenge, but we made it work.  As soon as we arrived in Cali, she made us feel welcome, and we immediately hit the ground running.  We were all eager to get the ball rolling.

Maggie has won a bunch of awards for being a badass realtor, and it was evident throughout this whole process.  We visited tons of open houses where the selling agents asked who we were working with.  Most of them knew Maggie, and expressed that they love working with her.  We were constantly receiving validation of her badass-ness.

Maggie is the agent you want on your side when your buying or selling a house because she will fight for you.  The South Bay market is really tough to maneuver for buyers.  It’s filled with bidding wars, low inventory, and rising prices….sounds fun, right?  Maggie put us at ease, and gave us a reality check when we needed it.  We really love Maggie, and we became great friends through this process.

If you’re looking for a realtor to buy or sell in the South Bay, go with Maggie.  We already did the research, and she’s the best.

Maggie and her team (especially her assistant Stephanie) are THE BOMB! I’ve had the extreme pleasure of working with them on many transactions. Thanks to their efficiency and organization, the process is always smooth and quick. They are on top of everything and always put the client’s needs first. I can’t say enough great things about Maggie – your integrity and ability to always get the job done right is what makes working with you so enjoyable. Thank you!

Maggie helped us buy a 2BR condo in Pacific Palisades recently, and she was AMAZING.  We really appreciated her level of professionalism and attention to detail in every aspect of the transaction.  Maggie has a great instinct for the market and knows her stuff.  She kept everything moving forward and called out issues that we didn’t know we even needed to think about.  She was easy to contact and always available when we needed her opinion or just a quick answer.  She proactively took care of getting inspections and securing homeowners insurance for us, knowing that we’d need them.  Maggie and her assistant Stefanie make a really superb team – they’re very dependable, reliable and just great to work with!

This is the first Yelp review I’ve ever written, and I couldn’t be more motivated to do so.

I moved into my first home a couple weeks ago, a 4 br, 3.5 bath 2800 sq ft new construction home in North Redondo.  My plan was initially to spend about 150-175% of what I paid to buy something similar in Hermosa/Manhattan, but after many long chats, Maggie helped me to realize this was the best decision for me. What kind of agent tries to convince you to earn them significantly less money?  I would say this was one of the first decisions Maggie helped me with, but nope. She and I started our dialog a year earlier and it continued regularly way before she had any clue whether it would amount to anything.

Yes Maggie is extremely knowledgeable, yes Maggie helped me find my dream home, yes she did everything that could ever be asked of a buyers agent. Pretty sure the previous 50 reviews above mine cover how great she is at all of that.

I love Maggie for so much more than that though. She’s one of the few people I’ve ever met who I can honestly say works harder than me. Although I know she gets more business than she could ever need, I always felt like her only client. Every call, every text, every email was always responded to thoroughly and usually instantly. I mean like seconds later, not minutes.

I would say 80% of what I have and continue to use Maggie as a resource for falls outside the scope of the role of a buyers agent. As a first time home buyer combined with being quite OCD, you can imagine how often I did and continue to rely on Maggie for everything, from a reference to an A/V guy to a question about my home insurance policy, to simply some calming text about how everything is going to turn out great. And you know what, everything turned out perfectly. And I owe Maggie a great deal of the credit for that.

Finding success at around 18, the last decade of my life has consistently come with everyone trying to sell me everything. With people always being helpful only to disappear once a sale has been made (or when it wasn’t). Maggie was the opposite. She actually encouraged me to make decisions that would force her to invest more time in my deal many times. She worked even harder after her commission was ensured.

But most importantly, she’s simply a quality, ethical person. I don’t trust anyone ever; and I always, always felt 100% confident that our communication was between us alone. In an industry where everyone receives kickbacks for references, I know for a fact Maggie refuses to take them. She requires 1 thing from the names she gives out: Give me 0, give my client great work at a great price.

Last week I came home to a beautifully wrapped Nordstrom blanket. Of course it was from Maggie.

This was my first of what will be many home purchases. And Maggie has earned herself a client for life.

I have owned by own homebuilding company for 40 years in the greater metro Phoenix, Arizona area. I have built and sold over 1000 new homes. I have also bought a lot of resale homes, lots and vacant land over the years. Real Estate has been my profession my entire business life.

Things usually do not go as planned when buying or selling real estate. That’s to be expected, and it’s a major reason I use experienced professional realtors when I buy or sell real estate.

I have worked with many of the best realtors in the Phoenix, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley area with home sales up to $4 million. I must say, I put my experience working with you right up there with the best of the best!

When my daughter Megan & I first started working with you to prepare to sell our Santa Monica Condo, we wanted to know who our buyer was going to be, and what other properties were our competition. You prepared an excellent list of homes for us to tour, and at the end of that tour day, we put ourselves in the shoes of our buyer and ranked all of the homes on the tour and then priced our home so that when our buyer saw our home, we would be their first choice.

You brought our Santa Monica Condo to market at $875,000 List Price with the goal of getting close to List Price. We knew its value to our prospective buyer, and we priced it right! We did NOT list it at $900,000 or more hoping to find an unsophisticated buyer. We priced it to sell, and knew exactly what other properties our buyer would be looking at.  You had our home repainted and spruced up, looking good, and ready for sale. You recommended not to stage the home, and we agreed.

Everything you did was spot on, and when our buyer appeared that first week, we got an all cash sale at $865,000.

Issues came up during the inspection period which is to be expected, but you handled the buyer just right, and kept the sale on track. It closed 5 days ahead of schedule.

Megan and I would do business with you again in a heartbeat, and we will recommend you to our family and friends!

You are one of the best in your field, and it was a pleasure working with you.

I cannot say enough great things about Maggie!  We bought a home that was in the process of being built and had a very long waiting period from the time they started to the time it was completed.  Maggie was there every step of the way. She also sold our home and did that in 3 days!! I would and do recommend Maggie to anyone that I know who is buying or selling a home.   We literally did not have to think about thing as she had everything covered.  Whenever we had questions she was there anytime of the day or night!  I feel like if you dont use Maggie you will be cheated out of a great experience.

Maggie is truly a wonderful person who is awesome at what she does! I was pretty nervous about selling my childhood home as it was my first time dealing with anything involving real estate and my parents are overseas. I was worried that selling the house would be difficult with them being international. On top of that, it was very emotional selling the house I grew up in, but she made the process as smooth as possible and really put me at ease. Maggie and I were in constant contact. She always kept my parents and me informed and made sure we understood all the details and logistics that went into the transaction.

Despite some exhausting and unforeseen obstacles that arose, she was there every step of the way to make sure things were streamlined and simple for me. She is very patient and mindful and knows exactly what she is doing. She even went above and beyond the call of duty in every possible way (sometimes feeling like a surrogate therapist in a sense with all the stress coming with the sale).

If I ever deal in real estate again, Maggie will be the first person I notify. I am seriously eternally grateful for this amazing woman! I cannot recommend her enough!

Maggie is literally your 24/7 realtor. Working all day on behalf of her clients and taking calls deep into the evening. She is knowledgeable and on top of everything, always willing to serve the best interests of her clients.

Maggie is a Gem!
We were not even living in the state when we decided to sell our home in CA. and she ensured that everything went smooth and seamless.
From working with the tenants, who were currently renting our home to dealing with a not so easy management company who was managing it.  Maggie took the lead and handled it all, and got it sold!
We could not have had a better, experience than this.  What a professional!
Thank you!

One word to describe Maggie Ding and her team: ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY AMAZING! Okay that was two words, but thats because she’s that amazing. My husband and I needed to sell our condo for various reasons, and Maggie was there to help us each step of the way. Quite honestly, our home sole in 10 days. She had three open houses for us in that span, answered every single email or call, was professional throughout the duration, and always was on our side and what was best for us. In the end, i would never go with anyone else. She is our realtor for life. When we do buy again, she is our girl. I know she will go to bat for us as her clients. AMAZING realtor, great person, no bs… she’s the SH*T!

Not living in the area looked on Yelp for a recommended realtor. Stumbled onto Maggie and hard to believe all the positive reviews. As many others have already said she is very good and deserving of all the praise people have wrote. Finally decided to put mom’s house for sale but not in real rush to sell as I’d be basically the only one to clear out the house. I mean, how do you pick an agent where you dont live? Met with Maggie and she listened to my situation and was patient and offered suggestions on a plan of attack. First impression was impressive and her honesty and credentials was impressive. Once I finally cleared up most of inside house I gave Maggie a call. She got the needed things done inside the house while I cleared out the garage. Within a month the house was up for sale, accepted offer over asking price with no real comps in area ( so her research and experience was spot on). Communication was excellent the entire time and explained every option that came up. If I were to buy or sell a house again in the South Bay I’d most definitely hire Maggie.  Absolutely wonderful experience and only complaint is that I live too far for her to be my agent to buy my next house

We will start out with them most important characteristic of Maggie. SHE IS A GREAT PERSON. We think that when you start out with that description, everything else falls nicely in line.

We first learned of Maggie through YELP when we needed to handle an estate home sale. Maggie was extremely efficient throughout the process fielding numerous offers from potential buyers. Although the house was priced according to the market, we ended up accepting an offer for much more than the asking price and a, “bidding war” took place! Communication was great throughout the process and she walked us through all the steps to a great conclusion.

Since we had a great experience as sellers, we naturally went to Maggie to handle our search for a home in Long Beach area. We were also looking in Palos Verdes and Torrance. She provided us with a list of homes that changed on a daily basis. We saw one we liked and actually flew out on a weekend to see this house as well as a few others. Maggie took a whole Saturday out of her busy schedule, prepared a color binder of the homes we wished to see and took us on tours of all the homes. The last one on the list was the one we decided to make an offer on.
Maggie helped us through the entire process, from negotiation, inspections, re-negotiation, and additional inspections providing us with factual information we could use to make sound decisions. Once again, Maggie is an expert at communication with her clients. Our emails were often answered within minutes, many times late at night. We are not convinced Maggie ever sleeps! There were numerous issues with the property, that were all solved thanks to Maggie’s persistence.
We closed on the home and couldn’t be happier with the entire process.

Maggie has been great with after sale issues as well. Maggie is the quintessential realtor and the type every agent should strive to be. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you do not need a Realtor to manage your sale or your purchase especially if you use one as good as Maggie Ding, although, we do challenge you to find one as good as she is!!

Thanks again, Maggie Ding!!!

Where should I start and what can I say in this review that hasn’t already been said? Maggie is absolutely a dear and she was so wonderful in helping two newbies in the real estate world. Any questions we had she answered quickly and thoroughly. She’s down to earth and practical and respects your wishes. She definitely exceeded all our expectations and really pushed to get everything through in 30 days. Because of her our home buying experience was as smooth as could be (other than the few bumps that none of us could do anything about).

We were ready to get into the real estate market and had been going to open houses just to set our expectations and for fun too. We knew we needed an agent that would put our interests first and be willing to answer all the questions we were bound to have on the way. Add to those a warm personality and a highly efficient do-it-now personality.

Maggie led us through the entire house buying process and was absolutely great in everything. She listened to our concerns, answered all our questions, suggested and gave advice whenever necessary but never unsolicited, and overall just an amazing person to be around who makes you feel comfortable. A very open and warm personality which is absolutely essential to easing the nerves from being in escrow. Everything was explained to us as things were happening lightning quick and she was almost always available when needed or would follow-up asap.

We had one hiccup along the way that could’ve really stopped us from finalizing the loan in 30 days. The government shutdown happened right before we were in escrow and threw a wrench into a lot of processes. One being verifying that I am a US tax paying citizen. My husband’s verification came through just fine, mine languished for weeks and finally came through in the nick of time. Through this and other dodgy moments Maggie was on it to make sure everything was being done that could be done. Too bad she can’t do anything about the US government!

Really I can’t say enough good things about Maggie. Having her as our real estate agent was absolutely wonderful. She has a warmth to her that makes her feel like a long lost older sister.

Maggie was an EXCELLENT realtor and helped my husband and I with our first home purchase. The whole process was seamless and when I told my friends and colleagues my experience and how much guidance and attention I had from Maggie they were blown away. Maggie has many strengths that aide in her being an amazing realtor and the most important to us was the fact that she always made us feel like we were her only clients. She provided quick responses and a lot of personal attention and for this being our first home purchase was that critical. I really can’t say enough great things about Maggie! When we are ready to purchase another property or move we will definitely be calling her!

Maggie is superb. We didn’t have any dealings with ReMax beyond Maggie and her assistant so I can’t truly comment much on the agency/firm, however, Maggie was wonderful to work with. We’ve already referred her to friends.

Maggie Ding (and team) is a professional who truly looks out for her client’s interest.   We used Maggie for our first home purchase and she was patient, caring, detailed.. And overall,  just spectacularly awesome!  We even received raving compliments from both the selling agent and escrow officer regarding Maggie as one of the best agents they’ve worked with.   Post sales,  I have contacted Maggie for many advice and she responded just as quick during pre-sales.  Used her recommended electrician for some remods and they brought the Maggie standard with them.  We absolutely love our new home and it wouldn’t have been possible without Maggie.

Maggie just helped my wife and I get our first house. She was great, she is extremely professional, knowledgeable about the South Bay and Long Beach area, and very assertive when it came to negotiating with the sellers. She has a lot of experience which helped my wife and I who were knew to real estate, and patiently walked us through the entire process. She thought about everything and was dedicated to ensuring we got everything we wanted. Maggie was always available (flexible to our work hours) which impressed us, considering she has two young kids. We were extremely pleased with Maggie and will plan on using her in the future. I will full heatedly be recommending her to our family and friends.

We highly recommend Maggie! This is our third real estate transaction with Maggie and team. Once again, Maggie exceeded our expectations. She presented us with multiple offers, so we were only on the market for a total of 5 days. Thanks to her strategy, we sold our home for ABOVE ASKING PRICE and closed escrow within 30 days. AMAZING!

As always, we appreciated how Maggie consistently kept our goals as her top priority. She did a great job keeping us informed and presented decision points so that things were able to move along smoothly and quickly. She has the experience and knowledge to see things from a 360 degree perspective. Smart, savvy, client-focused, professional, and confident are great words that describe her style. Maggie knows how to work with all parties involved in the process…extremely helpful when there are contingencies in play.

My wife and I just bought our first condo. When we first spoke to Maggie about being our agent we came away from the conversation knowing that we wanted her to represent us. She was extremely personable and her industry knowledge was very apparent. She gave us a great overview of the entire process. When we found the place that we wanted, bid on it, and went into escrow, she was in constant contact at every stage of the process answering all of our questions and directing traffic to ensure that everything went without a hitch. At no time did we feel like we did not understand what was going. As first time home-buyers this was very important to us. I strongly recommend Maggie as a real estate consultant. She is very honest, hardworking, and extremely knowledgeable. I could not be happier with the service that she provided.

To echo the dozens of positive reviews on here, Maggie is simply the best. I never thought that I would find a realtor through Yelp, but I’m so glad we gave it a shot! This review is long overdue, but we’re finally settled into our new home (thanks to Maggie) and loving it!

When we were looking for a realtor who covered a range of locations (South Bay to West LA/SM), we met with a handful of people who we found either through Yelp or referrals from friends. Maggie was far and away the most responsive, and we clicked with her immediately because she is so bubbly and energetic. Ironically, another agent (based in West LA) that we met with even said that if we were looking for an expert for the South Bay, that she had a colleague who she’d refer us to… and it was Maggie.

Our first-time home buying process with Maggie went really smoothly, and we were so lucky to have Maggie advocating for us the whole way. She really went above and beyond, and even wrote a time-sensitive offer letter for us on a Sunday night while she was out of the country on vacation! After only a few weeks of looking, through a stroke of luck as well as Maggie’s persistence and quick negotiating, we landed a house we had loved from the beginning of our house hunt (that had been taken off the market for weeks before we even found Maggie as our realtor). I hear these stories about escrow being this crazy scary process, but it was really not a big deal with Maggie leading us through. She was really on top of making sure our lender followed through, and was just the right level of “no-BS” that you want in someone who’s standing up for you. In an extremely tough market, you really need to have someone like her on your side. When we closed escrow, even the sellers were asking about her after seeing all that she did for us.

I could not recommend Maggie highly enough!

It is so hard to write a review for Maggie because she completely exceeded all of our expectations immediately. And don’t get me wrong, we had high expectations to begin with! My husband was relocated out of the South Bay and we needed to sell our house quickly. Maggie took over and had our house sold within a day. I firmly believe it was Maggie’s networking ability in this area and her expertise about what type of family would work in our house that made the process so easy. Maggie also was very informative and thorough with the process to ensure we were getting every cent possible. Maggie is beyond professional, but she is also amazingly fun to work with. We will likely be back in this neighborhood again within the next decade, and Maggie will most definitely be my first call

This review is about 6 months overdue. My girlfriend and I started shopping for a condo in West Los Angeles last fall. We were nervous first time home-buyers and we found Maggie on Yelp and met with her at her office. From the very first meeting, her preparation and attention to detail were evident. We were very demanding and particular in our initial search and Maggie took charge of the situation, making us feel at ease. She accompanied us on the majority of our property visits and maintained an up to date listing of available properties that fit our criteria. Not only did we get a clearer picture of what we were looking for – we had a great time looking at places with her. When it came time to make an offer Maggie excelled even further. We were able to close on a place we both absolutely loved, at a price well below listing. She arranged for a thorough inspection so we knew exactly what we were getting in to and even set us up with a number of contractors and a great handyman who we’ve had back to our place to do work twice.

We’ll be calling Maggie again whenever we decide it’s time to look for another property. We couldn’t have been happier!

Seriously, she is the best realtor you will find in the south bay. It’s ridiculous how much help and knowledge you will receive from her.

My wife and I were looking for a new home in the south bay for our growing family. After talking with her about our opportunities in this increasingly priced market, she did not hesitate to give us the cold hard facts: The market for buying is difficult. Low inventory, multiple offers. She wasn’t kidding.

We had made multiple offers on various properties and had always gotten outbid with multiple all-cash offers on what seemed to be even non-ideal properties.

Luckily, Maggie had the presence of mind to help us strategize and expand our thinking to really narrow down our top criteria for a new house.

And oh boy, did this strategy work out so beautifully. Instead of paying our max budget for a house that we thought we could just tolerate, we got an awesome deal for a house that we love in a neighborhood and school district that’s ideal for our new kid. Plus, even after a month after buying, our place is still appreciating. Hooray for living only a mile away from the beach!

Also, she helped take our minds off the stress of home buying: negotiations, inspections, loans, etc. All we really had to do was concentrate on finding a place that fit our needs.

I can go on and on about her connections with other businesses in the neighborhood (repairs, inspections, DAYCARE, etc), attention to detail (already knows pros/cons of properties before we even ask), personal service (we felt like we were her only clients), friendliness (yay, more tennis friends!), etc. But, I think you’ve already got that idea from other reviews here.

Maggie helped us buy our first home. She was amazing throughout this very stressful home buying experience. My fiancé and I both have very busy schedules and she was great about scheduling meetings or showings that would work for us. Basically she would go above and beyond to make the situation work. She would stay up late to talk to us and answer all of our questions and not let us feel like she was ever rushed to get off the phone. We always felt she had our best interests at heart. After we opened escrow we had, well I guess I had some doubts about the house and she made sure that we thoroughly inspected the house until I felt comfortable enough to let the contingencies go and she always let us know that we could back out if we weren’t sure. Maggie works hard for her clients, but that’s not even the best part about her. She’s so personable and after this experience we felt like she’s become our friend. 🙂

Maggie was referred to me by some neighbors who hired her to sell their house. They were very happy with her and so was I. Maggie was very receptive right from the start and we set up a face to face meeting. She came prepared with a portfolio and comparisons. She spent over an hour with my husband and I and answered all of our questions. Maggie was very proactive and did a lot of pre marketing. We had a lot of showings and multiple offers before our scheduled open house, which we wound up canceling. I was a first time home seller and had a lot of questions along the way. Maggie was patient and did a good job of explaining everything to me. Maggie and her assistant Stefanie were easy to reach and always called me back right away. Next time I need a realtor I will definitely call Maggie and I highly recommend her.

I am a repeat client of Maggie Ding who served as my realtor for two real estate transactions. Maggie goes ABOVE and BEYOND for her clients, and, of all the realtors I have worked with in the past, Maggie is the only realtor I would recommend to my friends and family in So. Cal.

Expertise in real estate: Maggie’s experience and knowledge helped me formulate effective strategies that yielded great results. She took the time to understand my needs, priorities, and short-term and long-term goals. Maggie consistently looked out for my interests and gave me the information I needed to make informed decisions. She is GREAT at laying out options, especially pointing out the pros/cons of each choice.

Attention to detail: On numerous occasions, Maggie’s attention to detail mitigated issues down the road. For example, she caught a calculation error on the offer provided by the other party that slipped past the other realtor. I also appreciated Maggie’s staging recommendations, pricing strategy, and sophisticated marketing approach (including high-quality photos, property description, etc.) in order to attract the right buyer.

Professionalism: Throughout the process, Maggie’s professionalism was second to none. I always felt like I was her only client, even though I know she helps many others with their real estate needs. She is super organized and tech savvy (definitely comes in handy when things are moving fast). Shortly after closing, I received a burned CD with a copy of all my transaction documents (so much easier than keeping stacks of paper). I also received a copy of the closing statement right around tax season. Awesome!

Communication: I would describe Maggie’s communication style as “proactive” and “effective”. Proactive – Not once did I need to hound Maggie for follow up on questions, the progress of the sale, offers, documents, next steps, etc. She takes pride in providing quick and thorough responses and updates. Effective – In times of challenge and complexity, Maggie does a great job keeping all parties informed and connected. This proactive and effective communication style has helped to ease many stressful situations. Further, since I work during the day, Maggie leveraged various communication channels to connect with me (e.g. e-mail, text, phone) and also worked around my schedule to call me before work, during lunch, and in the evenings. I sincerely appreciated Maggie’s flexibility.

Relationships: Beyond her expertise with the real estate industry, Maggie possesses the interpersonal skills that are at the core of a successful realtor. She excels at building rapport with other realtors to ease the real estate transaction.

Overall, what I enjoyed most about working with Maggie is witnessing someone who uses her innate talents and passion for real estate to help others. I noticed that her clients end up being lifetime partners which is a true testament to her integrity and level of service. Thanks Maggie and I hope you’re doing great!

My fiance and I just closed on our first home together earlier this week.  I honestly don’t know if this would’ve been possible without Maggie. We had been looking for houses for a while, under tight budget constraints and another agent, and it wasn’t  going anywhere. I felt like we kept missing out on opportunities. Anyways, when my fiance switched it up and found Maggie, we couldn’t believe the difference- it was like night and day. Maggie was so organized, responsive, and great at marketing us as buyers in a pretty competitive market/area. I felt like we got answers immediately from Maggie all the time, honest advice, and I never felt less important than other clients that may have been buying or selling with bigger budgets. We got the right house, for the right price, with the right agent, and I just couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much, Maggie!

Maggie Ding. Maggie Ding. Oh, where do I start? Ok, I’ll start here on yelp.  My husband and I decided to look at homes in the South Bay when we were pregnant with our second baby to move out of our Brentwood condo and in to the burbs. So, I went on yelp to search for an agent. I called couple agents only to get their voicemails. Boo!  Then with no one calling me back I went back on yelp and decided to give this Maggie gal a ring.
I was surprised she even picked up since it was around dinner time. Yes, she had her 2 girls screaming in the background, but she apologize and excused herself into the other room where we chatted. To make long story short, we met up that weekend and looked at some homes. She met us at the first house and we were impressed with the colored booklet that she had prepared for the tour that day. None of the houses were a good fit for us, but she was able to see what we like and what we were looking for. After 2 or 3 weekends of looking (and baby due in about  2 months) we found a house that we felt was a good fit for us.
The process was very complicated since it was a trust account with 2 trustees in 2 different states, but Maggie was diligent about making sure that the seller’s agent was on top of things (I won’t mention names, but I would never hire him as my agent). Even the negotiating process took over 2 weeks to agree on a price! OMG.
Finally, when everything was set and done, we closed on time and moved in 2 weeks after the baby arrived. The whole purpose was to move before the arrival of the baby, but you never know when the baby will be ready to come out! In my case 3 wks before the due date! Yikes!
Maggie and my husband hit it off right away also which was great because ultimately he’s the one that’s going to be paying for the house =)  The best part is that she isn’t just our lifetime agent, she is going to be our lifetime friend. She’s energetic and just purely awesome. You would think she’s paying me to write this, but trust me, once you meet her you will know what I’m talking about.
Would I recommend Maggie Ding? Hell ya! By the way, I just like calling her Maggie Ding… so does my little 2 year old son! Maggie Ding!

Gosh, where do I begin?!  A couple of friends referred Maggie to me and my husband.  I must admit, it was the best referral we’ve ever had!  My husband and I were newbies to the house-purchasing world, and we were absolutely clueless and scared.  Honestly, I was a little nervous when I picked up my phone to call Maggie for the first time, but after a couple minutes into the call, I learned I had nothing to worry about.  Maggie was not only professional but personable, communicative, and very friendly.  She guided us through every single step and answered every question we had along with questions she knew we would ask (yes, she’s THAT good).  Maggie is such an amazing real estate agent.  She went above and beyond, assisted with anything and recommended people in her network when needed in order for escrow to close.  PLUS, she made sure we received documents that came from other parties (seller, escrow, etc).  (Thanks to Maggie’s initiative and experience, we received documents from her that we should have received from escrow but never did.)  She’s extremely knowledgeable and experienced, which was a major help to us.  Even when we were out of town, she kept us up to date on everything, told us what we needed to do and the status updates of any agenda items we had at that time.  No matter how busy Maggie was, she always made us feel like we were her top priority.  Maggie spoiled us (of course in a good way)!  Purchasing a house is a huge investment, and we were fortunate enough to have Maggie by our side and walk us through step by step from A to Z, offering suggestions, different perspectives, and honest answers without feeling pressured nor swayed (like what a salesman tend to do with clients).

Maggie was everything we needed and wanted in a real estate agent.  Her assistant, Stefanie, was a tremendous help, too!  From major questions (such as “Were there any other special inspections that were recommended?”) to random questions (such as “You wouldn’t happen to have some idea of the dimensions of the refrigerator space would you?”), Maggie and Stefanie were there with an immediate answer.  It’s very comforting when you know a real estate agent and his/her staff are extraordinarily organized, thorough, and are a great team for their clients.

We wouldn’t be in our beautiful home if it weren’t for Maggie.  I’m a worrier, but throughout the process Maggie helped me get out of that feeling when it came to buying a house.  The time Maggie invested in us and knowing that we were in good hands helped to put any worries I had at ease while making me excited about our first home purchase.  My husband and I trusted Maggie and are very happy with our decision to work with her.  We’ve been living in our house for three months, and we really appreciate the fact that Maggie is there to answer any house-related questions (including the fun property taxes!).  First our real estate agent and now our friend, I highly recommend Maggie to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.

Maggie helped my husband, brother, sister-in-law and me buy a unique property in El Segundo. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient and friendly. She answered all our questions (and there were a lot!), kept us updated and made sure the transaction went smoothly. Maggie is terrific at what she does and we really trust her expertise. We’re very happy to have met and worked with her.

Maggie helped my wife and I purchase a home in November 2012. We had lots of conditions and preferences for our new home, but we wanted to buy something for less than $300,000. Even with those constraints, Maggie helped us find a place that was right for us. She was always helpful, patient, and attentive, and she provided us with the information and assistance that we needed. She made sure that the paperwork went smoothly for us throughout every stage of the purchasing process. When we told her that we wanted to search over a wide area, she even introduced us to another good real estate agent who works in the OC area. She also introduced us to a good insurance agent and a lender who got us a better loan deal than anything I was able to find online.

Maggie is the best – if you are looking to buy in the South Bay, look no further. Maggie will provide you with an unparalleled level of service and expertise.

My wife and I decided to work with Maggie after reading reviews on Yelp and having an introductory call with her. We were completely blown away by our experience.

As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn about the process and Maggie set us up for success early, including introducing us to a fantastic lender (her relationships in this area helped us get exceptional service and a very quick closing period).

Maggie (and her assistant Stefanie) are extraordinarily responsive, knowledgeable and helpful (beyond what can be reasonably expected). Her attention to detail and willingness to dig into both our needs and the seller’s care-abouts, made the difference in helping us develop and submit a winning offer in a competitive situation. Despite having a number of clients (I think she closed on multiple houses the day we closed), Maggie made us feel like we were her only priority. The level of personalized service made a huge difference as we navigated the market to find our first home and truly sets her apart as a professional.

Beyond all this, Maggie is just a wonderful person and my wife and I really value the relationship we developed.

Maggie is hands down the BEST agent out there. She helped my husband I with our purchase of a home in El Segundo. She fought for us and got us exactly what we wanted. When we wanted to expand the property she had contractors and architects lined up to meet with us in 24 hrs (at no charge).
Working with Maggie is like having your very smart best friend helping you look for a home. We never felt pressured or rushed whenever we were with her. Her staff is amazing too. We were kept abreast of every little detail.
If I could have given her more than 5 stars I would have. Don’t hesitate to call her.

This is our first yelp review! We use yelp a lot and are so grateful to have found Maggie on here that we wanted to share our great experience. After being disappointed in our first two Realtors and even having a home purchase fall through (ten days before closing!) earlier this year, we knew it was time to find a dedicated, competent, caring agent–that would help us navigate this competitive and sometimes confusing market. It was Maggie! Her outstanding reviews are true and we are so pleased to be in our first home. She helped us each step of the way and was always available to answer questions. Her assistant, Stephanie, is great, too. Maggie truly cares about her clients. She makes you feel like her number one priority. She is very professional but also very down to earth. We hope we stay in touch because she is great!

Maggie and her team are AWESOME! Thanks to Yelp we are so happy we found a realtor who treats you like family and makes sure that you get the best advice possible. She was so honest, knowledgeable, professional, and extremely easy to contact throughout the whole process. We were first time home buyers, and she answered our thousands of questions patiently. The wife really narrowed the search down as we were only looking in RPV area. Our first try didn’t go through since there were some all cash offers to go against, but on our second try Maggie was able to swing the deal for us. The seller was thinking of taking a slightly higher offer than ours, but Maggie was able to convince the listing agent to talk the seller into accepting our offer as she made it look better. She really has your best interests at heart, which is rare and what makes her stand out. She scheduled our home inspection and even had several contractors come by to give us some estimates since this is a fixer upper. Maggie is very computer savvy as well and most of the documents we could sign from the convenience of our home, with Maggie walking us through over the phone of course. We HIGHLY recommend Maggie and her team and will absolutely work with her in the future.

Maggie put our house on the market within days of us making the decision to sell.  Our house hit the market right before Christmas & it still sold for full asking price (with more than one offer) within 3 weeks.

We were buying contingent on the sale of our property, so there were lots of balls in the air & she was exceptionally diligent in making sure that everyone was on the same page & doing their job on time – i.e., lenders, escrow agents, inspectors, realtors on all ends.  We were in a 30 day escrow for sale and purchase, so things were all on quick turnaround times. With today’s lenders cracking down, it was not an easy feat.

Maggie also helped us buy our dream house for less than asking price (& we would have paid quite a bit more than asking price).  We were all moved in less than 2 months after we originally put our house up for sale.  Everyone says that buying and selling a home is one of life’s most stressful events.  While I will agree to that, Maggie kept the stress to a minimum by being organized & on top of things.  She manages the inevitable fires with grace and professionalism.

So yes, Maggie gets it done.  But she also makes the process enjoyable. We emailed/texted and were on the phone constantly throughout the process and I definitely miss all our interactions now. 🙂  She genuinely cares about all her clients and their happiness & I’m sure that anyone who uses her for their own real estate needs will experience the same thing.

Maggie is an exceptional realtor.  Maggie helped my wife and I purchase a house in Palos Verdes contingent upon the sale of our Hermosa Beach townhouse.  She demonstrated an excellent ability to negotiate for us (on both ends), was extremely diligent in communicating with us and the other realtors, and was very professional throughout the entire process.  She was very patient and explained everything to us thoroughly.  I honestly feel that in the hands of another realtor, the whole process could very easily have fallen apart.  Apparently, the sellers’ realtor was also impressed since he offered her a job after everything was done!

I also recently recommended Maggie to one if my work partners and she helped them purchase their first home in Hermosa Beach, and I know they were happy with her too.  I would very highly recommend Maggie!

We’ve moved nine times since we have been married, most recently to Manhattan Beach.  Maggie Ding has been the very best agent we have ever had.  She goes above and beyond to take care of all things from organizing to meet your needs, to knowledge of the real estate market to the purchase process to negotiation.  Maggie is responsive, tech savvy when you need convenience and most of all is a terrific communicator brokering the process for the buyer and helping the seller understand the buyers’ requests.  After all our moves we hope to be here for a long time, but if we ever move again, Maggie is who we would call.

She still is sending us stuff, like a CD of all the documents we signed and lists of restaurants and contact numbers for all our needs.  Maggie Ding goes beyond the transaction to become a full-service, trusted adviser.  She truly is the best!

Maggie is AWESOME! Having never sold a home before, Maggie walked us through every step of the process and never made us feel bad for our MANY questions! She is not only great at what she does, but even moreso, she is a great person. She got our house sold in ONE week at a price we wanted – AND she sold our dad’s house in 6 days!! Major surprises, given the current market. She has become our go-to person for all real-estate related questions and referrals – THANKS MAGGIE!

Maggie is truly one of the most talented and dedicated realtors I have come across!  If you are looking for someone who will partner with you to find the right home for your family, she is the one to call.  I have recommended Maggie to close friends and colleagues without hesitation and she has never made me regret it!  They have all raved about how smart, witty, and savvy she is about the market and how good she is at what she does.

Maggie helped me purchase my first home and patiently walked me through the whole process.  She is someone you can really trust with this important and big purchase because you know that she will be on top of everything, from the most up to date listings to making sure your offer is the one that is accepted.  She is a partner and friend rather than just someone you hire for a job.  Even years after I’ve used her, she is always sending updated information, reminding me about property taxes and providing referrals for home repairs.  Thank you Maggie for making home shopping enjoyable!

Maggie and her team are AMAZING! It’s hard to find a realtor who treats you like family and makes sure that you get the best advice possible. She was so honest, knowledgeable, and professional. We were first time homebuyers and she answered our thousands of questions patiently. She really has your best interests at heart, which is rare and what makes her stand out. Even after closing, she made sure that we were okay and gave great referrals for contractors. We HIGHLY recommend her and will absolutely work with her in the future.

We could not have purchased a single family home in Manhattan Beach if it hadn’t been for Maggie’s persistence, dedication, patience, diligence, hard work, professionalism, knowledge and expertise.  With an MB real estate market these days that sees decent properties go pending in just a matter of days, we had pretty much abandoned any hope of finding a property in MB that would fit our needs.  But Maggie would not allow us to give up; she continued with the search to find us a desirable MB property and was successful in getting our offer accepted despite a tense multiple offer situation – all due to her tireless efforts and fabulous negotiation skills.  We were also incredibly impressed with Maggie’s thoroughness and deft hand during the property inspection / due diligence process.  We expected to have to do most of that work ourselves (which had been our experience with other agents in the past), but Maggie was extremely proactive and detail-oriented; and she really did take care of everything.  When we encountered a number of unexpected and potentially deal-breaking issues, Maggie got people involved and worked tirelessly to find and negotiate acceptable resolutions of the problems.  She asked all of the important and relevant questions, focused on each issue, and made complex concepts easy for us and the listing agent/seller to understand – she was a bulldog.  Maggie’s follow-up after closing is also tremendous – she’s still providing us with vendor suggestions as we work on improvements to our house and when the escrow company forgot to provide us with a discount of their fees (something Maggie had originally negotiated for us), she had them immediately issue us a refund.

While we are avid users and fans of Yelp, we rarely ever post a review – but for Maggie are we happy to make an exception.  We have absolutely no hesitation recommending Maggie to anyone looking for a real estate agent.  You simply can’t go wrong in working with Maggie.

Maggie is a godsend. Seriously.

She sat down with us and really took the time to get to know us and listen to our wants and needs and concerns. Then, she led us to the exact condo that we wanted. Like magic!! If we had looked ourselves, we never would have found this condo because this was our first home and we kinda had an idea of what we were looking for but it wasn’t a concrete picture and who knows if we need 2 bedrooms or 3 or what neighborhood??? Maggie somehow went into our hearts and saw what really fit us.

I tell Maggie again and again how I wish I could clone her and take her to different states so she can be my real estate agent there. *sigh* if only! A good agent is hard to find and trust me, she is one of those gems.

-Grace S.

Maggie was very professional, informative and fun through the entire buying experience (we were 1st time buyers). No matter how many questions we had, she was always there to answer them. Without hesitation, we would use her again.

-Jimmy T.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Maggie was great. We had a lot of ups and down and she was there for it all. When we buy another house, we will call Maggie first.

-Robert G.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Maggie is awesome. She did a great job to find my boyfriend and I our first home. She walked us through the whole process and made sure we got the best home with the best deal. I will never use another real estate agent. Like I said Maggie is awesome.

-Brittany S.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Maggie makes the often daunting prospect of buying a home truly a wonderful and educational experience.  She is hard-working, knowledgeable and most importantly listens to your needs, wants and goals to best find the right piece of real estate for her clients.

-Rosa L.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It’s hard to find agents who don’t look at you like a dollar sign, but actually take the time to learn what you’re looking for and understanding your needs.  Even years after our purchase, she doesn’t hesitate when you need help looking up info on the transaction, or referring excellent, trusted contractors.

Maggie even assisted when we were looking for a housemate – her referral became a great friend, even after he moved out – we spent several problem- and drama-free years together.

-Steve T.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

My wife and I wanted to thank Maggie for the extremely smooth and easy “closing” process on our recent home purchase. On a previous property purchase, the last few weeks of closing were extremely hectic and stressful, but this was about as pain free and as professional an experience as we can think of when buying a home.

We will definitely refer our friends and family over to you and please feel free to use us as a reference should any your future customers ask for one.

Maggie is a fantastic real estate agent and new friend.

My family and I were relocating from San Francisco and had to find a house. It should be noted that I just started a new job and had a new baby at the same time so life was crazy. After just ONE weekend of intense house shopping we bought and just closed a great house in Redondo Beach. But this was just half the story.

We spent a lot of time with Maggie reviewing and researching homes. We had to think about the commute and look into schools because my oldest was starting kindergarten. We spent many late nights conferencing myself in LA, my wife in SF and Maggie to narrow the scope of our search so we would be prepared. She did a ton of the schooling research in the LA area for us.

Since I was already in LA, I scouted out the homes with Maggie before the wife came down. Maggie was very professional and prepared. She handed me a full book of all the homes with an overlay of the school district for each house. The houses were fully mapped in the GPS and in order so we didn’t waste any time at all.

When my wife came into town, I already wiped out 2/3 of the list and efficiently went through all the homes. On the last day, she drove us around the neighborhood and showed us all the great places in the area.

Bing, bang, bada-boom. We made an offer that week. Maggie was able to negotiate a great price, in fact the appraisal was higher than the price….but it doesn’t end there.

Maggie walked us through the WHOLE process from beginning to end and set everything up including scheduling inspectors, and staying on top of the lender for me. She is a complete turn-key resource.

I highly recommend her to anyone who is buying and/or selling a home.

My wife and I were in OH closing on our property and being first time home buyers in California, we were intimidating, especially with the California processes that were nothing like in the East. It was a bless that a very close friend to our family recommended Maggie Wang to us. Maggie made the process much easier than we could possibly imagine. Maggie went above and beyond her duty working with our agent back in OH to streamline the process so that we can sell the property in OH on time to close our new home in California.

We both are very happy with our experience and couldn’t have been pleased with the service. We thank you for the time and tremendous effort you spent with us, making our first experience in California as easy as it was! I definitely recommend Maggie Wang to anyone and would not hesitate use again ourselves.

– David D.

I’d like to add. Maggie Wang was not only the best agent we ever worked with but we became such great friends over the course of just a few weeks. Maggie has great integrity and looking after our interest has always been her top priority. Maggie is very experience negotiator, sharp, very detail oriented, and very patient with everyone she worked with.

The best thing we did was put our trust in Maggie’s judgment and opinions. I cannot say enough how fortunate we were to have Maggie represented us! Thank you, Maggie, for everything you have done for us and being part of the best experience we can possibly hope for in starting our new life here in California!!

Thank you so much Maggie for all of your work!

You have been fantastic to work with and always very on top of everything. Thank you especially for the “encouragement” you gave the bank last week to get this done. You have been extremely easy to work with and always available to answer questions. We will definitely be referring you to our friends looking to buy/sell.

Maggie was our real estate agent when my wife and I were buying our first house in early 2009. Maggie was a terrific real estate agent to work with. She was very knowledgeable and helpful, she didn’t rush us at all even though we wanted to look at many properties, and she treated us in a way that showed that she really wanted to help us find The Right Place instead of The Place That Maximized Her Commission. She also has great connections, and she was able to set us up with a mortgage broker who was able to get us a great jumbo loan at the peak of the lending bubble meltdown.

Maggie was such a great agent and person that my wife and I stay in touch with her to this day, and we’re looking forward to working with her when we decide to sell our house.

Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative

Maggie was our agent when we bought our condo in West LA.  Maggie was actually able to swing our deal – AFTER another offer had been accepted by the seller and we assumed that we were out.  Maggie was able to convince the selling agent to convince the buyer to buy a different property so we could close our deal.  It was an impressive demonstration of her selling and negotiating skills.  I recommend Maggie completely and have no doubt we will be working with her again in the future.

-Dennis C.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

When we found a place we liked a few years ago, we asked Maggie to help us see it through.  I am so glad we did.  She helped us edge out another all-cash offer.  She was professional in putting together all of the paperwork, from the initial bid to the close.

Since then, I’ve recommended her to a few friends and they have all had great experiences working with her.  If you are looking for someone to help you get the place you want, call Maggie. =)

She is also a great resource.  We used a painter and an electrician that she referred and they both worked out well.

  1. We used Maggie this past year. She is incredibly thorough, professional and reliable. We felt like we were in good hands and trusted her completely. In a tough market, she sold our house fast at the right price. But beyond that, it was a pleasure talking to her throughout the deal. I couldn’t have imagined a smoother transaction and my whole family adores her.

  2. Maggie is the best. When we were buying our first home, she didn’t just help us, she took the ball and ran with it. She was knowledgeable, professional, thorough and, perhaps most important of all, available, at any time of day, to answer any question we had. And trust me, as home-buying novices, we had many. We subsequently recommended her to some friends, and she helped them get a great house, too. If Maggie’s your agent, you’ll feel like you have a real advocate. You’ll feel like you’re in good hands.

  3. Maggie helped us by our townhouse — our first home — about four years ago. We were nervous about the whole process. But she made it very simple for us, walking through all of the necessary documents and requirements to buy the house. She did a great job negotiating a good price. She was honest and advised us when to watch out for potential problems. Maggie also has a bright, sunny and warm personality that helps her with sales. We couldn’t have done it without her. I highly recommend Maggie.

  4. Maggie was our realtor when we were purchasing our first home in October 2009. We had a longer than normal negotiation period since it was a trust home and there were 4 parties in the trust. However, Maggie was efficient throughout the process. She was extremely detail-oriented during the home inspection since it was an “as-is” home. She covered every detail and managed to get us credit/money for renovations. Maggie is a superb realtor! She is highly competent at what she does, but at the same time she really treats all her clients like her family, taking great care of all their needs. She exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend her!

  5. Maggie Wang was our real estate agent when we sold our home in West Torrance and when we purchased our new home in the Hollywood Riviera. For both transactions, Maggie represented us exceptionally. When selling our home, we had to deal with a very difficult buyer who had previously backed out of a deal at the very last minute. Maggie worked her magic and was able to negotiate, and re-negotiate ever changing contingency stipulations from the buyer – ultimately closing the deal. As for the purchase of our new home, Maggie had the wisdom to put in a backup offer on the home, even though the house was in escrow and the selling agent was convinced it would close without a hitch. When the pending sale did indeed fall through,we were well positioned to make an offer (below the original selling price) before the house was even placed back on the market.
    Maggie did very well for us, and we have recommended her to all of our friends.

  6. Buying a home started out as a stressful and, at times, agonizing process but having the right realtor made all the difference.

    Maggie was our realtor when my wife and I finally purchased our first home, but she was not the first realtor we originally had helping us. Prior to working with Maggie we were using another realtor for about 7 to 8 months and had made several offers on several different homes during the course of that time, all failing to land the place that we had wanted and close the deal. We would spend long hours and hard days crafting long and cumbersome offers and counter offers, yet we never knew why each of them were being rejected. But we had trusted our agent and the assumption that it was really only a matter of offering the right amount of cash to get the deal done, as if that was all that mattered. After all those months of searching and repeated disappointment, we decided to end the stress and stop.

    A month or so later a good friend of ours recommended that we talk to Maggie and what a difference it turned out to be. Prior to even showing us a home or asking us how many bedrooms and baths we wanted, Maggie wanted to know more about us, understand our personalities, our likes and dislikes and ultimately what our future and immediate needs were as a young married couple. She quickly used that information to find us properties that fit those needs rather than what fit the bedroom and bathroom count. Maggie was able to get us to see properties prior to their official “open-house” date and even better, she had always seemed to able to talk to the agent for the seller to get a better idea of what seller wanted besides the price of the home. When we would walk into a property, Maggie already seemed to have a good rapport with the other agent and made everyone comfortable. After less than a month of searching we made an offer on a property that already had several offers on it and although we were not necessarily the highest offer on the table, we got it! We believe it was all because of the genuine trust Maggie had built with the other agent and seller, how simple and straight forward an offer she had helped us craft, and ultimately how comfortable she made it for all of us that were involved, because selling a home is just as stressful as buying one.

    To put it simple, we trust Maggie and there is no one else we would ever use to help us buy or sell a home.

  7. In a city such as LA, with all the fake flash and fake cash, it is refreshing to work with someone who means what they say and do what they promise to do. With that said, let me tell you why Maggie Wang should be your 1st choice when buying/ selling your home:

    1. Very knowledgeable of the Housing Market and the LA Area.
    EX: She’s not afraid to say if a house is over-priced/ if it’s a good deal. Furthermore if she is not familiar in a particular area/neighborhood, she will make the effort to become familiar with it or find you someone who is.

    2. Very Patient and Accommodating
    EX: When I first moved to LA, I was 100% unfamiliar with the city and not quite sure where I wanted to live. Maggie not only drove me to almost every neighborhood in Westside LA (over 15 cities), she took the time to drive my parents around to the same neighborhoods so they too could become acquainted with LA. Maggie also accompanied me to every viewing appointment, which is awesome because it took me a little under 2 yrs to decide which house to buy.

    3. Very Professional and Organized
    EX: Maggie is not only punctual but very professional. Several occasions, we’ll be in the midst of a series of open houses & appointments (Did I mention she prepares house viewing itineraries?), and all of a sudden I would realize the whole area is not for me. Without breaking a sweat, she’ll pull out a plan B schedule and we’re on our way. No hassle!

    4. Very Dedicated to her clients
    EX: The house I own is not in her normal territory. But when I decided to sell in the middle of ’08-’09 housing bust, without complaints she was still very dedicated to list and show my home. She didn’t just pawn me off on some inexperienced agent closer to my area. She takes pride in her work and will defend your listing price to other agents even if the price is higher than normal.

    So, I hope you realize working with Maggie Wang is the only way to go.

  8. As a Real Estate broker out of the area I used Maggie to list a house for me in Redondo Beach. The choice to use her was based on her professional presentation along with her charismatic personality. She made big promises and delivered on every one. Pricing of the house was a concern but we got 11 offers and sold for over asking price and closed early. What more could you ask for? I couldn’t have been more pleased with an agent. Maggie had already had an answer as I brought up each of my concerns. She was also very creative in coming up with ideas on how to improve the house and was always easy to reach. When it comes to a real estate agent she is a 10!!

  9. We will start out with them most important characteristic of Maggie. SHE IS A GREAT PERSON. We think that when you start out with that description, everything else falls nicely in line.

    We first learned of Maggie through YELP when we needed to handle an estate home sale. Maggie was extremely efficient throughout the process fielding numerous offers from potential buyers. Although the house was priced according to the market, we ended up accepting an offer for much more than the asking price and a, “bidding war” took place! Communication was great throughout the process and she walked us through all the steps to a great conclusion.

    Since we had a great experience as sellers, we naturally went to Maggie to handle our search for a home in Long Beach area. We were also looking in Palos Verdes and Torrance. She provided us with a list of homes that changed on a daily basis. We saw one we liked and actually flew out on a weekend to see this house as well as a few others. Maggie took a whole Saturday out of her busy schedule, prepared a color binder of the homes we wished to see and took us on tours of all the homes. The last one on the list was the one we decided to make an offer on.
    Maggie helped us through the entire process, from negotiation, inspections, re-negotiation, and additional inspections providing us with factual information we could use to make sound decisions. Once again, Maggie is an expert at communication with her clients. Our emails were often answered within minutes, many times late at night. We are not convinced Maggie ever sleeps! There were numerous issues with the property, that were all solved thanks to Maggie’s persistence.
    We closed on the home and couldn’t be happier with the entire process.

    Maggie has been great with after sale issues as well. Maggie is the quintessential realtor and the type every agent should strive to be. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you do not need a Realtor to manage your sale or your purchase especially if you use one as good as Maggie Ding, although, we do challenge you to find one as good as she is!!

    Thanks again, Maggie Ding!!!

    Leslie and Don

  10. Maggie is absolutely wonderful and we loved working with her!

    As first-time homebuyers, my boyfriend and I were very nervous about the process. Maggie made the experience painless and walked us thru the entire process with patience and a lot of knowledge. She was professional and immediately answered any and all questions that we had about the entire process from getting a mortgage broker to making sure that escrow went smoothly. Maggie worked hard behind the scenes to ensure that all issues that came up were resolved immediately.

    Maggie is an excellent realtor and wonderful person — we will recommend Maggie to our family and friends and look forward to working with her again!

    Thanks Maggie!!
    Nick & Emily

  11. Maggie was an excellent agent to work with selling my house! Right from the beginning she priced the house just right for the market, we got an all cash offer.
    She would provide any help needed until the end. We close the escrow without
    any problem. 🙂

    Thanks!

    Henry S.
