"The Real Deal in Real Estate"
Sold My House in One Day!
I can't say enough about my Re-Max, Woodland Hills, Real Estate Agent, Lois Gerace. She is an outstanding, professional, with years of experience. Lois sold my house in one day, in a terrible market, for 10% more than our asking price. She gave us great advice, knows what she is doing and I didn't regret trusting her and her assistant, Jessica. Trust me when I tell you that Lois is a hard worker, will fight for you and you will never have to do anything alone. I felt safe and comfortable in a very stressful situation. She beats any real estate agent, hands down. Thank you again, Lois for all that you did.
Lois Gerace is an outstanding real estate agent. She secured multiple offers on our house within three days of listing it. In a down market, she was able to list and close our house in under 40 days and brought our sale price as close to our goal as possible. The best thing to do is exactly what she tells you. Lois knows the industry and the market and how to approach each transaction from start to finish. She has an efficient and capable team to take car of all aspects of the sale from home preparation to staging to marketing to escrow. During negotiatons and escrow, Lois excels at defending the interests of her clients. She genuinely cares about her clients and getting them as close to their goals as quickly as possible.
Working with Lois was like having one of those amazing experiences you watch on HGTV that you thinking "Things like this don't happen in real life." With Lois the do.
Her amazing team including contractor and stager met us at the house altogether for a planning session. After drawing up a strategy, work began almost immediately. They had the house renovated, staged, and ready to list in approximately three weeks. The work as meticulous, and the advertising team followed up with an outstanding website, MLS photo album, flyers, and more. Once listed the house went under contract with multiple offers in 48 hours. During escrow, Lois fiercely protected our interests as we faced some unexpected challenges from the buyer. At every level of the work we discovered that Lois, or some part of her team, had gone above and beyond the call of cuty to protect our assets and ensure a successful sale. This was especially important to us as we had the added logistical challenge of living out of state. Lois streamlined the process so that we were inconvenienced as little as possible while keeping us completely informed and up to date at all times. It is hard to express how happy we are with our experience.

Lois and her team were incredibly professional and took care of everything for our home to sell. As a Woodland Hills native, living in Canada now, she was able to work with me from a distance, handling everything from finding a great contractor, to a great stager, to even managing the property while it was vacant for a short while. As our sale was following the death of a beloved parent, Lois was incredibly thoughtful and discreet in all of her dealings with our family, and managed to take all the stress out of such a normally stressful situation. Our house sold very quickly, within days, and for a very high price in an extremely difficult economic market. I highly recommend Lois for your real estate needs.
Lois Gerace is No Joke
Let me start by simply stating she sold my house in 8 days and got me 10,000 dollars over my asking price in September 2009. Do you know how incredible that was? I lived in Santa Clarita and in the midst of short sales and foreclosed homes and she got me above my asking price!
On the buying end, she found me a townhouse in the neighborhood I wanted to be in at a great price. She actually found my house and showed it to me online and checked it all out herself.
People thought I was crazy to buy a house online but I trust Lois. Lois asks questions, shows you as many houses as it takes to find what you like and need, and then goes and gets it for you. She found the right place for me.
I’m a stand up comic, I travel all the time. Lois found my new house without me even being here. She handled everything for me professionally and patiently. I’m a man who isn’t really into houses or an expert so she walked me through it.
I only wish Lois had been my agent years ago when I found the house in Santa Clarita. I bought the wrong house for me and I have no doubt Lois would have found the right house for me and would have saved me some money and aggravation.
She’s still calling 6 months later to ask if I’m happy in the new house.
I truly can’t rave enough about how good she is. Trust her, work with her and you’ll be happy you did.

"Lois Gerace sold my home in less than 4 days with multiple offers! She was determined to get me top dollar and did. I was going to Germany on business for the duration of the 30 day escrow. Lois had the forthsight to have my daughter sign a Power of Attorney so that escrow would still be able to close on time while I was out of the country....and it did!
Lois is amazingly honest with strong pricing and marketing talent. I love her! She is my real estate agent for life."

"Lois Gerace is my friend and realtor. She's incredible at both. Yes, that's right-- out of this world. In a tough market, she listened to my concerns, shared her experience and wisdom, and together we sold my house in less than two weeks. FYI--my house went on the market mid-August 2007-- right when the subprime mess hit. If you're like me, you don't want people in your life who will yes you to death, rather, you want honest, intelligent, caring, straight shooters. That, in a nutshell, is Lo."

We were saving for a home when we met Lois. She encouraged us to speak to a lender while we were saving. First, to prepare us for the financing we would be getting and second, to be pre approved and paperwork ready when the moment came to make our purchase. Lois took us out three times and found us our “Dream Home” that we thought we would never be able to afford.
Lois negotiated the price in the most unbelievable way! Her skills as a salesperson were not only for us, but for the seller as well – a real Win/Win! We moved into our new home and three weeks later were told we would be having our first child! Perfect house, perfect timing and a perfect agent!

Twice as Nice
Three years ago, when I was divorced, Lois helped find me my home. I told her that I only wanted to spend a certain amount of money and live in a nice area. She was very direct. Lois told me that she would find the “best of the best” and show it to me. She did exactly that. She called me within 2 days and she showed me only one home – and I bought it! Lois listened to my wants and desires and met every single one of them with the one property. She is amazing, but it doesn’t stop there!
Within a year I met my wife, Tina and my step-daughter, and decided the house was a bit small for our new family. We called Lois and told her our desires once again. Only this time she presented something unique and special.
Lois told us that she would buy my house if I found a house that I wanted to buy, and mine had not sold yet. We agreed to a sales price and sure enough that is what happened. Lois found me a home that was outstanding. And again showing us only one home – the one we purchased, she turned around and bought mine!
We couldn’t believe it! We were so happy and impressed with her up-front ways and great listening skills in zeroing on our home for us that we would never think of using anyone else to represent us in the sale or purchase of a property.
We have become great friends with her and her husband. Working with Lois is not your average business relationship – it’s way more than that – it’s a lifelong commitment of friendship.
With Great Pleasure,

The Family Home
Lois Gerace represented my family in the sale of my uncle’s Burbank home when he passed away. It was an especially difficult sales process as the home was in a major state of disrepair and I live nearly 400 miles away in Northern California. In short, Lois exceeded our every expectation.
At the beginning of the process Lois, along with contractor Bud Meehan, accurately assessed what it would cost to improve the property to make it marketable and bring a higher price. She then presented us with two options, sell the property "as-is" with minor improvements at a lower price, or improve the property to make it "move in ready" for a considerably higher price. Being so far away and not able to oversee the process, it was difficult to trust a relative stranger when she assured us that she would oversee the entire thing and that she would take care of everything.
In the end we did decide to make the more dramatic improvements. Lois and Bud communicated with me each step of the way. When they were finished the house was beautiful and as promised, move in ready...all within budget. It quickly sold at a price substantially higher than I had hoped and the escrow process went exactly as Lois detailed.
I am grateful to have been referred to Lois as she literally saved me when I was faced with a very daunting task. She doesn’t over promise or under deliver, she promises and delivers more than what she promises! It’s not just a tag line that Lois Gerace uses; she really is the REAL DEAL. My only regret is that I don’t live in the area so I could refer to friends and family in need of a real estate professional.
