My wife and I were extremely apprehensive about purchasing our first home in the Fall of 2021 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic. As first-time parents to a five-month old and as busy professionals, we couldn’t imagine a more stressful time in our lives to be making such an important decision. Magali’s expertise, attention to detail, and positive attitude made the process unbelievably easy and rewarding.
Although inventory was relatively low in our desired neighborhoods, Magali miraculously found a number of promising listings. Magali’s excellent relationships with multiple mortgage lenders helped us to obtain rapid pre-approval and secure a competitive home loan. Additionally, Magali possesses an in-depth understanding of the Cedars-Sinai Housing Assistance Loan which was made available to me as a faculty member in the Department of Surgery. When it came to utilizing this loan, Magali served as an important liaison between our mortgage lender and the Medical Center.
Every time we went to tour a home, Magali patiently educated us about the subtle signs of high quality construction as well as looming maintenance issues. Her experience and relationships with other local real estate agents gave us a competitive advantage. After having our offer accepted on a home that initially seemed beyond our reach, Magali kept us on task and guided us through a dizzying sequence of home inspections, each of which gave us increasing peace of mind that we had identified the right first home for our family. Magali even made it possible for us to close escrow a few days early, giving us time for a weekend getaway to celebrate our accomplishment! Overall, we feel extremely lucky to have been introduced to Magali. She remains a close friend of our family and a trusted partner in our home ownership journey. We recommend her in the highest possible terms.

I was referred to Magali by a colleague who had worked with her a few years ago. When I reached out to her, we discussed – among other things – the benefit to get me fully pre-approved so that I could compete in this very competitive market. She put me in touch with a very helpful lender who made the process quite easy and painless.
I wrote two offers, and I was outbid. But, when the listing for my “new” home came up, I just knew that there had been a cosmic reason for losing the other properties. I was in love, and I wanted this property more than anything else. Since I was fully pre-approved, this Seller decided to take my offer without waiting for another buyer who was circling. We saw the residence the day after it came on the market. By the next day, she had already submitted my offer and put just enough pressure so that it was accepted on the spot. By the time we requested a credit from the Sellers thirteen days later, the appraisal report and the loan were already approved and so, we had a bit more leverage with our credit request. I was beyond grateful (and shocked!) when Magali called to tell me that I had received my full requested credit amount which helped me reduce my closing costs.
During the entire process, she updated me each and every day so that I knew exactly what I had to do at all times. Nothing was left to chance. Buying a home can be a bit stressful, and the ability to bounce ideas with her was so valuable and comforting. She is really on top of her game, and this is what she does best. And it is clear that she truly loves what she does. More importantly, I can genuinely trust her opinions. I cannot wait to have her over when I receive all my new furniture.
