Kind Words

We Love Our Clients! Here's What They Have To Say:

I first met Terry and Deirdre when they walked into my shop. After years of having a great business relationship, we became "LA" friends and beyond - to the point of sharing their wedding dinner. So, it was a natural choice to have them list the home that I didn't want to sell.
Of course they provided all the great listing services lauded in the other reviews here, but when the going got tough (you have NO idea...), they went to the mat for me. They were my corner man through several bloody rounds. Literally serving the final knock-out blow to get the best deal done. They made a bittersweet experience as scarless as possible, helping me transition into chapter 3 of my life. Look no further, go nowhere else. I love these compadres. Kippis!

We love this real estate team! After interviewing all the top real estate agencies in our area, we knew this was the Group to work with. Deirdre & Terry are extremely knowledgeable and will guide you in the right direction - just listen to everything they say (even if you think you know better, because you don't, seriously). We followed all suggestions and couldn't have been happier with the outcome (85k over asking!). The Group was always available when we needed them and they made us feel very comfortable with the process of selling our home (first timers here), which is very stressful. Do not hesitate to contact them (we did through their website contact page originally) and you will not be disappointed. Happy buying/selling!

Deirdre, Terry & Co. were fantastic to work with. Professional, accommodating and responsive. They told me a price, much to my surprise, that they thought my property was worth and delivered in the end. The whole process was quick and painless and I would enlist their services again without hesitation.

Seller of Marion

We had an absolutely amazing experience working with L34. Deirdre and Terry are genuinely kind and caring people who made the entire selling and buying process so easy. We instantly felt comfortable around them and they were excellent at walking us through all the details. They answered all our questions and held our hands when needed. We were extremely emotionally attached to our home in Highland Park and they were very attentive to that. Their knowledge of the NELA market is unparalleled and their marketing and taste level is top notch. Not only did they sell our home for an incredible price - well above asking - but they instantly helped us buy our dream home in the incredibly competitive market of South Pasadena. We truly felt that our family's well-being and best interest was their first priority at every step along the way. Everyone on the L34 team was attentive, thorough and had great communication skills. I can't express our gratitude and fondness enough. If you are lucky enough to get the chance to work with them I'm sure you will feel the same way!

Deirdre, Terry and the team at L34 helped me through one of the most stressful life events there is: selling a house. They made what could have been an overwhelming process streamlined and even fun, and rolled with acts of God like a giant tree branch falling into the yard on the night before our first open house. I will never forget their sympathy, kindness, or professionalism, and I couldn't be happier with how the whole process ended up.

I think my husband and I wanted to see just what the L34 Group could do. Deirdre sold my husband our home about 4 years ago and we were back for more. Putting our old house back on the market and looking to upgrade. We had the pleasure of working with everyone from Terry & Deirdre to Fawn and Shannon and everyone we've come in contact with at the company. Selling your home and buying a new one at the same time is extremely stressful, not to mention confusing and just mounds and mounds of paperwork and Docusigns. No one ever made me feel stupid for asking lots of questions. They all answered our emails, calls and texts and any time of day. They not only cared about our former and future homes but they cared about us as people. They'd check up on us, see how we were doing and hell... Fawn even took our cat for way longer than necessary. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a more smooth, pleasant experience with such a large undertaking of a job. They're the best. Now, we won't be selling our new home anytime soon but if we were, L34 would be our first call!

Deirdre and Terry recently helped me to sell my house in Highland Park, Los Angeles, all while I was living in London and going through a difficult time personally. I had been renting the house out for five years and it needed a lot of work to get it into better shape to sell, but I was unable to come back to LA to deal with it. Without me having to be there, they orchestrated absolutely everything necessary to get this done - from the usual inspections, paperwork, and selling strategy to overseeing significant repairs, painting, yard clean-up and finally staging. They have a reliable team on hand to get things done quickly and efficiently and they didn't waste any time getting it all done so we could get it on the market quickly. They kept me in the loop on an almost daily basis and we managed to communicate via Whatsapp and Skype, despite having an 8 hour time difference. Deirdre and Terry were professional, caring and knowledgable and I felt like I was in really safe hands throughout the process. I can't recommend them enough.

seller of Annan

Deidre and Terry are the most genuine and caring realtors that we know. Great listeners, fantastic business people and they are warm, kind and friendly. I wish more people were like the L34 Group. They recommended a few key upgrades to enhance the sale of our wonderful craftsman house. They marketed the property perfectly and were available whenever we had a question. They locked down the perfect buyer who will make our house her home.

Where do I begin?!

L34 Group has helped me to buy, sell, and then buy another home again, and I know I couldn't have done any of this without their knowledge and expertise.

I bought, sold, and bought, all in the Echo Park area.

Deirdre and Terry are AMAZING to work with! I always felt like a priority with them and knew they had my best interest at heart. When looking for my first home, I was a little hesitant to make a move because I was a newbie when it came to home buying. I really wanted to find "the perfect home!" Lucky for me, Deirdre was so amazing! She stuck by me, writing offers and showing me houses again and agin until I found the one that I knew was "it!" It was a tiny home, but I got it!

And then a few years later, my fiance and I wanted to get a bigger place, so it was time to sell, and we knew the right people to call. Deirdre and Terry (and their incredible team) got the home sold within two weeks! They knew how to price it, had their photographer take amazing pictures of it to present it to the potential buyers, got the word out, and before you knew it, we had sold the home and made a GREAT return on our investment.

Then, when it was time to buy again, there was only one group we wanted to work with, and that was Deirdre and Terry at L34 Group. This time, I wasn't hesitant and when the right home came up, my fiance and I pounced! The home came with a few tricky loan strings attached, but Deirdre and Terry's 15 years of experience stepped in with their amazing negotiating skills and everything went INCREDIBLY smoothly!

I can't tell you how thankful I am to have found Deirdre and Terry. Because of them, my fiance and I are homeowners again (and they also got us a great deal on our new amazing place- THANK YOU Deirdre and Terry!).

I always recommend them to my friends when they start looking for a home. I have a few friends who have bought and one that is still on the hunt with L34!

Do yourself a favor and make the craziness that is home buying or selling easier and more successful for yourself and go thru L34 Group. You will not be disappointed :)

Maryn P, Echo Park

Deirdre, Terry and Shannon were incredible to work with. They were patiently by our side for over a year before we finally bought our first home in November 2015. They understood how overwhelming and uncharted the whole process was for us, and always provided us with valuable insights and information without ever swaying us one way or another on this very personal, VERY big decision! Like many first-time home buyers, we (well I; the husband not so much) had many reservations, hesitations and a long list of priorities. We never, ever felt like a burden. Shannon was by our side unconditionally and always had the best attitude to show us through our journey. We could not be happier in our new home in Altadena, and they were instrumental in making our dream of home ownership real. It's really no wonder they continue to get listings - which by the way are always top-notch: staged and marketed better than anything else on the market. When it comes time for us to sell, they will be our team for that as well! Do not hesitate to reach out to these wonderful people!

My wife and I have lived in LA for 12 years and were aware of the real estate Fury Road we were about to embark on when we decided to buy a house. There was a lot we didn't know in the details though...
We looked (and made offers) for over a year before finally landing in our new home, and though it was a frustrating experience, we felt good about every decision we made under the care of Terry, Deirdre, and Shannon. Shannon Reed was our agent and she guided us through every step of the way, remaining patient and extremely responsive throughout despite being in the middle of a very busy (deservedly so) real estate team. If you're looking to buy or sell in NELA, this is where you should stop looking for your agent. You won't find anything better.

Walker G, Atwater

Deirdre and Terry are the delightful and highly knowledgable L34 Group who helped me through every step of the sales process for my home in Los Angeles. I live overseas and was concerned about the logistics of preparing the property for the market and signing all those documents from far away, but they had previous experience of this and guided me through every step, from what work needed doing to make the house look its best and who could do it, to negotiating with the buyer on a few details closer to the close of sale.

Terry is a field expert in all matters on the operations front. They both suggested the work that needed doing and Terry brought in the professionals, managed it all and kept me updated on the progress with pictures and messages which was super reassuring thousands of miles away.

Deirdre handled the actual sale process from start to finish. Not only does she know the market inside out but her charm and diplomacy negotiated the odd hurdle and pitfall that pops up when selling a home which she dealt with grace and ease.

They're a joy to work with and I felt fully supported throughout the process. Not only was the sale a success but I have made friends in the process. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you both soon!

 George S, London

Deirdre and Terry are great. This was the second time I have bought a house with Deirdre as my agent and the process was smooth and easy. Deidre is intelligent and helpful without being pushy. She was very patient as my wife and I spent some time trying to figure out what we wanted out of a house. Her communication was constant and timely. Terry would lend a hand whenever needed and had an idea for our new place that is going to make it soooo much cooler. Thanks so much!

Noah C, Eagle Rock

Deirdre and Terry at L34 Group sold my home in NELA in 5 days for well over asking price with multiple offers. Need I say more? But I must...
After living in and renovating my house for 28 years it was a bitter sweet experience to finally sell my home to retire to Colorado. Faced with downsizing, packing and searching for a new property, the burden of getting a house ready to sell was overwhelming. I had many finishing touches that I could not stand to be left undone when I finally left my home. Without the help, encouragement and referrals that Deirdre and Terry offered I may never have settled that my home was "ready" to sell. I must say that my house had never looked better than the day I sold it. And for that I am proud and grateful to them. I am now settled in Colorado and purchased a new home less than 2 months from the time we listed my property in Northeast LA. I couldn't ask for more. I would highly recommend them. They were right on target with pricing, staging and showing my house. Thanks Deirdre and Terry you made the entire process smooth and painless.

Terry and Deirdre at L34 group were exactly what we were looking for when it was time to sell our house. We currently live out of state and had been renting our house in Highland Park for 2.5 years. Also please keep in mind that the house was built in 1910 - and is a bit unique. When time to sell, Deirdre guided us in regards to how best prep the house for selling, what needed to be done to attract the best buyer, and the proper contacts to get it done. We had a very aggressive schedule in regards to going to market - which included repainting the interior of the house, touch up on the exterior, numerous dry-rot and termite repairs, a new water heater, landscaping, staging, photo shoot, inspections, and listing. This was all done over the course of 1 month (did I mention we live 1000 miles away), and resulted in the house selling in 2 weeks for $45,000 over asking price. Through the process, Deirdre knew what needed to be done, and Terry got it done. Buying the house was the most stressful thing I have ever done in my life - so needless to say I figured selling it would be even worse. While stressful (especially with the distance) - Terry and Deirdre made it so much better. When I had questions - they were always there to answer them. When I needed some work done on the house - they put me in contact with right person and made sure they were there to open the door for them. When we got multiple offers - they guided us through the process of countering and finding the best buyer for the house. Without a doubt I would recommend these two if you are looking to buy or sell in L.A. Want to see what I am talking about? Look up 918 N Avenue 64. 90042 on Zillow to see the results.

Deirdre and Terry are AWSOME!! We just sold our house in Highland Park. They helped us from the beginning with everything: from the open house, the staging, the flyers, all is done Professionally, Ethically, etc. They really raise the standards in real estate sales and customer satisfaction. We were so pleased with everything, that are considering them for our next project. We highly recommend them and their team. THANK YOU!

GOOD REALTORS ARE ESSENTIAL!!!!!!! ESCROW DOESN'T ALWAYS GO DOWN EASY AND I HAVE TO SAY WITH CONVICTION THAT DEIRDRE AND TERRY ARE TRULY THE AGENTS YOU WANT ON YOUR TEAM! NOW ON THE OTHER SIDE OF A DIFFICULT ESCROW SALE, I'M SO HAPPY THAT INSTEAD OF FEELING SLIMED BY THE PROCESS, I FEEL AS THOUGH IT ENDED FAIRLY AND CAN LIVE WITH NO REGRETS AND ONLY GRATITUDE THAT I HAD THEM AS MY AGENTS THROUGH THE PROCESS...NO WORDS REALLY! They work with thoroughness, integrity, and patience but also bring a balanced degree of firmness to the negotiation, always explaining with perfect clarity what is happening in each step, why and then advise what they feel to be the balanced thing to do. Explaining pros and cons and then being open to whatever choice I make as a seller. To say Deirdre and Terry are who you want on your side when selling or buying a house is an understatement and only scratches the surface of not only how important it is to have good realtors but also realtors with a heart and conscience that will guide you through an often stressful process. Deirdre and Terry were so full of knowledge and patience they never ceased to amaze me! They were thorough in explaining what they thought would be advantageous to do as a seller in preparation for listing. They were inventive and pro-active in marketing my house and getting a buzz. Then when offers started to come in you saw at another level how thorough they are, knowing so many other agents, assessor's, loan officers etc. they were able to advise me not just of the offers but of the difference between them so I could make the best choice for me. When it became clear that we had first time buyers who would not be as smooth as they indicated on their offer letter Deirdre and Terry stepped up and then some! Instead of throwing up their hands they dug in further and showed up in every way! Without going into the ugly details I think the last point I'd most like to stress is how having not just a good 'business' realtor but one with compassion and a willingness to listen is essential! DEIRDRE AND TERRY...COMBINING MARKET & BUSINESS SAVVY WITH COMPASSION AND INTEGRITY!

Jilann O, Seller 2707 Saxon

Sold! Terry and Deirdre are the best out there in our market. They understand what people are looking for in the area and can deliver from start to finish a service that no other agent can match. We contacted them to get remodel ideas ('cause we're not hip LOL) and they gave us a ton of ideas. They came by many times during the remodel and were very involved in picking fixtures, cabinets, counters, flooring, etc.. When the house hit the market, it sold in about 2 weeks, and we got a lot more than we expected! We are now planning our next project with Terry and Deirdre.

Sergio G, Seller

We listed our house with L34 Group in July and sold it in two weeks. They have a good and fair method for collecting offers and we were happy with how they managed the counter offer process which increased offer amounts on our house. Terry is great and personable working the open houses and Deirdre really came through for us on the offers and escrow.
We also bought our new home with their team. Shannon was our day to day on the purchase and she was awesome. We requested a lot of needed repairs and the selling agent was very slow in getting back to us. Shannon was amazing managing them and getting the repairs we requested.

Do you want to buy a house in Northest LA? That would be NELA for all you less than hipster folks out there looking to move to a cool part of town because you read an article in the New York times that said NELA is the new Williamsburg.
Ok, so do you actually want to get the house? Because you will be competing with 25 other like-minded individuals who have the same great idea.
Look no further. The L34 group is your answer. Nobody knows Northeast LA like the L34 group. The cool thing is they're not cocky about it. They just know their stuff and they know how to get it for you.
If you want professional, honest, personable agents, Deirdre, Terry and Shannon will take care of you. I should know, they've helped me buy two houses now. And when it's time, I'll have them back for the 3rd.

Chili, Buyer (2 x)

Deirdre and Terry assisted me in the selling of my multi unit property in Highland Park. I have to say that the experience was smooth from beginning to end. Their level of engagement was always consistent and responses to emails and phone calls were timely. Selling a house can be uber stressful but Deirdre and Terry were there every step of the way, keeping me informed and offering their expertise making the entire process as painless as possible. They were strategic in setting baseline pricing & wisely targeted a more financially competitive buyer. I give them five glowing stars!!

Aland D, Seller 6205 Burwood

I can't say enough great things about them. SO friendly, SO warm and so personable paired with highly skilled, knowledgeable, professional and successful is something you almost never find in this market. After meeting with several realtors, I would never trust anyone except them. Not to mention, they will bring you the dollars you only dare to hope for! Impressive work, thank you.

In November of 2013, our family learned we were moving from Dallas, Texas to the Los Angeles area. I was very nervous about the move and had great concerns about whether we could find a home that we could afford and still be near good schools and a reasonable distance to work. I found a listing of Deirdre's on Trulia, made contact, and she called me. A few weeks later, she and Terry met me and my family in Los Angeles and showed us the different neighborhoods where we could find a new home. They assuaged our fears about such big move (we have three kiddos) and helped get us excited about the move.
They were patient and stayed in constant contact and answered all of our questions. Deirdre helped us navigate the very fast LA Real Estate market and gave us invaluable advice on how to bid for and win a house.
We looked at many houses and made several trips between Texas and California. We finally found the perfect house and closed in May 2014. Terry looked after the house while we were moving our family and furniture cross country and took pictures and videos and kept us updated. Our house is, hands down, our DREAM HOME, and we never would have secured it without Deirdre's expert assistance.
Deirdre is an absolute treasure and I highly recommend her and Terry for their expertise and kind, supportive, and informative approach to real estate in Southern California.
