Lyon Stahl Investment Real Estate is amazing! They made selling our 8-unit apartment building in Torrance easy and effortless to us. This was our first time selling a multi-unit apartment building and we live out of town, so we really appreciated their experience, knowledge, and great attitudes about helping us through each step of the process. They are truly experts at what they do. Their marketing campaign was polished and professional. They have a large contact network and got the word out quickly using direct mail, online, email and phone calls. We had five offers to choose from within the first week. Based on their knowledge and experience, Brett helped us decide what offer was best for us to ensure a smooth and quick closing process. They were impeccable in everything they did to help us. We received regular calls and emails with status updates. Signing forms was easy because we could do it all online. They scheduled and attended all the meetings at the property with our Property Manager, the buyers, the various city agencies, and contractors. Some minor retrofits were required by the City, and they arranged all of that. The Escrow company that they recommended responded quickly to our questions, and they were accurate and efficient. Throughout the entire process, Brett and his team explained everything and answered all of our questions so completely and respectfully. They were so friendly and easy to work with and they always followed up and took care of everything in a timely manner. And we sold the apartments for top dollar. I recommend Lyon Stahl very highly!
Woody and Brett, thank you for finding 1511 Artesia Blvd for me to purchase. I know it took a long time to find me the perfect building at the right price. The 5 units are the perfect amount of units for us to manage. My husband and I really appreciate that you spent so much time with us at the inspections – and helped with the loan process. It really helped that you provided the most recent sales – so we could see the value in the building. At the same time it seemed like a stretch, but looking back we are so thankful for your support and guidance. We look forward to working with you and Brett again!
I recently closed the sale of my 4-unit multi-family building in Redondo Beach with the help of Woody and Brett with great results. There were a ton of obstacles in my particular situation, which was a result of my divorce and they were 100% engaged and my advocates throughout the entire process. The result was that I got a very good price for my property and the reason I’m writing the recommendation letter.
I first became aware of Woody and Brett through the postcards they sent out with their listings. When it came time for me to find a realtor to work with on selling my building, they were one of a number that I called and requested a valuation. Out of the five packages I received, theirs was not only the nicest but the most comprehensive, and Woody suggested that he come to my home to go over it with me in detail. Over the course of the sale, which due to the contentious nature of the divorce lasted almost two years, Woody was always available to update the listing package or discuss the market or options.
When I was finally able to list the building, I chose Woody and Brett over not only other realtors who wanted the listing but over even family members who are also realtors. The experience and knowledge of multi-family dwellings and familiarity with the area were well above anyone else I had come across.
I would without reservation recommend Woody and Brett to anyone interested in buying or selling residential investment real estate. They are very professional and approachable, incredibly responsive and above all, advocates for their clients. They also did a great job of keeping tenants happy throughout the process. Their knowledge and expertise coupled with their ability to manage buyers and potential buyers expectations resulted in the highest possible sales price for my property.
