Stephen O.

You are the best at what you do: (1) detail-oriented, (2) excellent focus, (3) know your market, (4) understand what it takes to get a transaction over the finish line, and (5) most importantly, skilled at making a deal. Thank you.

Tod R.

Steven Brombal is the consummate real estate professional in all aspects of buying and selling an apartment investment. He exercises the utmost integrity and honesty during the course of a transaction. He is well informed, has excellent market knowledge and communicates every detail in a timely fashion. I would recommend that anyone considering buying or selling an apartment investment use Steven Brombal. I will use Steven Brombal as my broker for future transactions.

James M.

It would be inappropriate for me not to confirm my sincere appreciation for the professional and experienced way in which you and your staff handled the recent sale of our 27 units in Orange. I have been involved in many transactions in over 50 years in the business and confirm to you that I have never received more appropriate or professional service from a broker. Your outstanding success speaks for itself. Kindest personal regards and with admiration and appreciation.

R. Earle W.

In my over 25 years in the real estate investment field, and as a retired real estate broker, I have experienced the working ability of hundreds of agents either through my employ or through outside transactions. Your performance in the sale of my Costa Mesa apartment units was, in my opinion, the best in the business. In my opinion your honesty, reliability, performance, follow-through and professional know-how are outstanding. It was a pleasure to deal with a true quality broker.

Philip P.

I want to thank you and your able staff for the support and encouragement during this search and for helping me to make the correct decision. As you know, these decisions are often made on both a subjective and a financial basis. I cannot compliment your efforts enough on both counts. In addition, I also wanted to make mention of another observation. I truly feel I have enjoyed and benefited from the services of a true professional. You freely made available your extensive knowledge, not only of the market place, but your years of experience. I saw this expertise demonstrated repeatedly as we worked our way through the terms and conditions of multiple offers on various opportunities. I always felt a strong and certain sense of security that I had the best advice available.

Garry W.

Excellence in market knowledge, analysis skills, timing of negotiations with buyer and seller, closing procedural knowledge, knowing when to ‘press’ or not, keeping buyer and seller informed of progress and/or problems to solve while they remained small, structuring the sale where buyer and seller feel their input and desires are listened to yet structured for the highest percentage of closing. Professional while persistent ... persistent while personable.

Herman & Suelyn W.

We’re especially pleased to say this about Steven Brombal, who guided us through our recent apartment sale exchange. Steven is unflappable, personable, assertive, informed, and sympathetic. These are, of course, the qualities of any good real estate agent. But we find Steven outstanding in all those qualities. In short, he’s one hell of a professional.
