Danny Murphy - Testimonials

"Danny and Jade helped us sell our house with the price we are satisfied with.

They were very detail oriented and always kept us informed on the status on our house. Everything that they did was in our best interest. We will highly recommend them to all of our friends, and we will ask them again to sell our new house in the future." Thomas & Misa, 2013

"Danny did an amazing job helping us find and buy the perfect duplex in East Costa Mesa.

He's a very friendly likable guy and, when he first came to meet us to discuss our plans we were blown away by his knowledge of the area and the research he did on the local markets. He walked us through the process and made everything easy, from focusing on the right places, to putting together a strong offer. He was so good at pitching our offer that the seller accepted our FHA offer over another cash offer for the same amount. Danny communicated with us through the entire process with constant updates and always made himself available to answer any questions. From the offer to escrow we were happy to have him on our side. His attention to the smallest detail made the whole offer and escrow process a breeze. We will definitely ask Danny to help with our next home purchase and would recommend him to anyone."    Eric and Dina, 2012

"Sherry and I had a great experience with both Danny and Jade.

They are a great team; with both being available, it was like we had 24/7 representation. We spent most of our time with Danny and we can't say enough about how prepared and informed he was throughout the process. He went the extra mile every time…from setting up home tours, to preparing offers, to meeting personally with the sellers to present our offers. In every case both Sherry and I were actually surprised by how hard he worked every item. Sherry and I have bought and sold our share of homes over the years and worked with many realtors. None of those ever left us with a "memorable" experience. Not the case with Danny and Jade; a very memorable experience. We highly recommend them!" Jim and Sherry, 2012

"Danny and Jade rock!

  Simply put....if you want favorable and fast results on complicated real estate transactions, then this is your team.  Danny and Jade did a great job selling my home in downtown Los Angeles." James, 2012

"It was a pleasure to work with Danny during my home buying experience.

I already trusted him since I’ve known him for 10 years. He did an excellent job guiding me with professional opinions, but ultimately ensuring I made the final decision. He utilizes the latest technology (which was a tremendous help), but also incorporates good old fashioned face to face communication and concern. He is a great negotiator and will work to benefit his client within the boundaries of honesty and ethics. Danny is always on top of the process and lets you know the details of each step. He takes the time to understand your situation, including style of home, budget, timeframe, etc. He is responsive to questions and concerns you may have.  Once my home was purchased Danny gave me several recommendations of contractors for various services which were helpful. The ones I use have worked out great. In addition, Danny’s partner, Jade, who I hadn’t worked with, or even met, came out to my house to assist or should I say teach me how to select appropriate colors, plus a few other pointers as I was having some improvements done. She was full of great information as well. Both Danny and Jade are knowledgeable, caring professionals and I felt well taken care of. Thanks for the great experience!" Tom, 2012

"Jade and Danny were recommend to us by our attorney as experts in real estate with special skills in short sales.

They patiently waited a long time for us to pursue a loan modification and when it was no longer an option, they professionally and sympathetically handled a very rushed short sale and all of the negotiations that came up due to special circumstances along the way. They managed our short sale with extreme efficiency in spite of the hurdles and got it closed just in time! We have been very pleased with their exceptional knowledge of the process and their compassion for our situation and would highly recommend them to anyone with any real estate needs! They are the best!!!" Rick & Cindi, 2012

"Jade and Danny helped us every step of the way.

They advised us how to prepare the house for sale. They prepared the collateral material; everything was the highest quality including a brochure with a floor plan and a YouTube walk through video which could be activated using the mobile phone tag scan on the ‘For Sale’ sign. Within four days they had over 130 people visit the property. In a week we had three offers. In under two weeks we were in Escrow and 30 days later, with great management form Jade and Danny the sale was complete. If you are looking for a sales team that 100% understands the sales process and gives complete commitment; then Jade and Danny are the team you need." Bill & Carol, 2012

"We just wanted to thank you for helping us find our new home and for going above and beyond with guiding us through the home buying process.

It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we just love our new home! We are very impressed by the level of personal service and attention we received from start to end and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who are looking to sell or buy a new home. You are outstanding!" Ben & Helen, 2012

"Danny and Jade guided me through a short sale on my property.

Their team was proactive, process knowledgable and ethical throughout the transaction. They conducted themselves in a professional manner and advised each step of the way. I would recommend Danny and Jade's services to everyone." Scott, 2012

"As a seasoned investor of Residential Income Properties, I was extremely impressed with Danny's expertise in this field.

The challenges in the market place today regarding Residential Income Properties was handled in a very professional manner by Danny, that required one year of persistence on his part to find the perfect Million Dollar Property for me to purchase and then to execute the transaction seamlessly. I would recommend Jade and Danny for Investment Property purchases and the selling of Investment Properties as well." Susan, 2012

"Danny was great to work with!

He walked me through the entire short sale process step by step and made sure all of my questions were answered. He was in contact with me through the entire process, making sure I had all paperwork complete and ready for the bank when it was needed. Before starting this process I was concerned with how long it would take and how much I would have to do. Danny and his team truly took the stress off my shoulders, making sure the process was smooth and as quick as possible. I highly recommend working with Danny and the SoCal Life Team!" Amanda, 2012

"Danny started the whole process professionally.

He took the time and sat down with me to go over my criteria and preferences. From there he started to provide proper listings according to my interest. He was available, pleasant to work with and very knowlegable. He sometimes, points out the flaws and problem of the house before you notice them & that shows he is on your side (and not just after selling another house.) I would definitely recommed Danny to friends as a great consultant in real estate business." Arash, 2012

"I really cannot thank you enough for all the help you provided in securing a home for me and my family.

I was confident you were the right choice since you had been recommended to me by at least four or five of my friends and colleagues who gushed about how good you were. Boy did they undersell your effectiveness. Despite a very short deadline, fairly demanding requirements and my complete lack of knowledge of the area you were able to guide me through the process so that it was absolutely painless. Ours being one of five offers being considered there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have gotten that property without your help. I felt we were constantly one step ahead of everyone and I am certain that your idea of writing a personal message to the owners is what clinched the deal. But what I appreciate the most is that even after having found us a great home in a great neighborhood you still were there to assist me through the process. Having someone with your experience present during the inspection, pointing things out to the property manager has helped solve a lot of future headaches. From finding a home, to home insurance to appliances you have been helpful every step of the way.  I look forward to the next home I rent or buy and I know exactly who I will turn to when that time comes." Matthew, 2012

"I am so grateful for the stellar service Danny Murphy provided to my family and I in the recent sale of our home in Irvine.

In the face of depressed home prices, bargain hunting buyers, and a distressed economy, Danny successfully got us from “for sale” to “sold” in only 88 days, and for only slightly less than our asking price. Danny is more than a realtor, he is a competent advisor. Every step of the way, Danny exceeded our expectations – from shooting a virtual tour of our home and sharing it on YouTube, to proactively communicating with the buyer’s agent, inspector, multiple service providers, and us to ensure we stayed on track, and even picking up a modem we inadvertently left at the house after the new owners moved in. We look forward to working with Danny for our future real estate needs and recommend him without hesitation."

"Josh and I both wanted to thank you very much for the tremendous efforts you undertook to get us into our new home so efficiently and ever cheerfully!

  You really made the process of buying our first home in the US much smoother and more enjoyable than we hoped.  We look forward to continuing our friendship in the years to come and we will also be sure to recommend you whenever the opportunity arises!" Nancy, 2011

"Jade was a trooper and great support in our recent escrow.

She provided extra effort on a tight schedule and we are grateful. The two of you are affirmation that great talent exists in every industry and sometimes the timing is perfect when you find talented people. We struck gold with you both and look forward to continuing a relationship for years to come." 

Chris & Stacy

"Danny and Jade were great individuals to work with.

As a first time home buyer, I was uncertain and nervous about the whole process. Danny and Jade put my nerves at ease by taking the time to explain things to me and make sure I understood everything. Both Danny and Jade were easy to talk to and made my first experience of buying a home an enjoyable one. " Katelyn, 2011

"Jade Beardsley has been a tremendous help with the short sale of our home.

In the beginning stages Jade helped us through the process of reviewing our options and helping us determine our best choice. Ultimately we made the difficult decision to short sell our home. One of the biggest factors in making this decision was feeling that we had a team we could trust with Jade and her associates. Jade excelled at setting the price point appropriately so that it would move quickly, as well as presenting the property within the MLS system so agents and clients would want to see the property. The listing and showing stages went very smoothly and we received offers fairly quickly. Her knowledge of the short sale process was very useful during the offer negotiations as she quickly removed any contingencies she knew the banks would not accept. For the home owner dealing with the bank can be the most stressful part. This stress was eliminated for us because Jade has people on her team dedicated to working through the approval process with the banks. They are extremely knowledgeable with the short sale process and deal with the high volume of phone calls and document submissions required to get the short sale approved by the mortgage holders. I can’t thank Jade enough for helping me through one of the most difficult decisions of my life, and helping our family move on to the next stage of our lives."  Brian, 2011

“I met Danny Murphy approximately two years ago while trying to list and sell my duplex in East Costa Mesa.

The property was a For Sale By Owner, and Mr. Murphy was methodical in his conversations with me regarding the benefits of listing with a full service marketing and advertising firm, such as First Team Real Estate, and hiring agents who could leverage the use of technology, the internet, and video, in addition to the good ‘ole fashioned fundamentals of selling real estate to sell my property. After a year and half, my Wife and I hired Jade and Danny to sell our duplex in East Costa Mesa. We knew we had a great property, that was unique in many ways, and we believe that Jade and Danny showcased our property to the buying community in a very professional and technologically savvy manner. Jade and Danny handled every aspect of the process with diligence and care, from communicating with our tenants, which lead to a very smooth process for them, to organizing showings, skillfully negotiating the terms and conditions of offers we received, to facilitating the escrow process, thus enabling a smooth escrow that closed on-time. In an industry as seemingly commoditized as real estate, Danny and Jade are professionals that articulated a strategy to get top dollar for our property in the shortest possible period of time, and they delivered! I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to sell their home.” Richard, 2011

“Jade and Danny are a cut above any other realtors I have used, both in the US or abroad.

They are full-time, energetic, honest, can-do, will-do, knowledgeable, competitive, business-savvy, highly professional – and winners. They helped me acquire the property of my choice, stuck with me when things got difficult, and solved all the – sometimes considerable – issues for me as they arose. And the best thing is – together they are a great team. You get two-for-one, which means more attention, more knowledge and more ideas. Out of my experience, I highly recommended and highly rate them.” Paul, 2011
