Tracy King is the best realtor in Eagle Rock to sell your house. We were first impressed by her when we bought a house from her client years ago. We knew then she was the realtor to sell our Eagle Rock home. She is experienced, over 20 years we've seen her work, always very calm. She takes the time to listen, offers sage advice, and has assembled a strong team. Her daughter, Keely, organized the latest web-based selling for optimal exposure.
At the beginning of the process, Tracy helped us establish a realistic and attractive asking price, set a number of dates deadlines and concrete goals to make our house ready to sell. Then she brought in an experienced stager who showed us how to transform our deeply personalized home (which might not be everyone's cup of tea) into a "vehicle for the dreams of others." Her rolodex contacts are excellent, for example, she introduced us to construction professionals to spend the minimum money to make the house as attractive as possible. Throughout this process, her team helped us through the myriad paperwork.
When it came to the open house stage, Tracy chose the dates of our multiple open house events to optimize our market exposure. Her team dealt with the realtors and their clients, as well as the people looking for a home.
Her knowledge unmatched: She knows her competitors, the realtors in the Eagle Rock game. She knows the market; decades of previous sales in Eagle Rock, the failed sales, and the unsold properties. She also knows the buyers; she steered us away from a buyer who had recently offered an inflated offer at another property but then turned around to try to get a very much lower final price. She was on to him. She used the bidding process to gain a psychological advantage.
Finally, Tracy is a team-player: When the realtor of our prospective buyer tried a last-minute maneuver to try to reduce our final price, Tracy supported us unconditionally our decision to say NO, even though it might have lost her sale. In the end, we sold our home for far more than our initial offer, optimizing our return.
We recommend her without condition.Otto and Thelma, Sellers
Realty agent Tracy King and her associates made selling my parents' house a piece of cake. Knowing very little about real estate and the probate process (my parents had passed without a will), I was able to sell the Highland Park fixer upper in less than a month at top dollar. Tracy and her team were very patient with me, as I had changed my mind about selling after the house was put in the multiple listing system. When I realized the time was right, and after their office had referred me to a knowledgeable probate attorney, I gave the go ahead. Tracy and her team, including Keely, Chris, Athena and April, patiently and clearly outlined the steps of the selling process, replete with investors, open houses and bidders. If I were to choose a realty agent all over again, it would be none other than Tracy King. Five stars!
As first time home buyers with our first baby on the way, my wife and I were a little overwhelmed and intimidated by the prospect of the house hunting process, especially in a such a competitive market. We couldn't have felt more comfortable in the capable hands of our agent Chris Vargas and the entire Tracy King team. Chris really went out of his way to put us at ease, explaining the entire process and answering all of our questions, no matter how many times we asked. He was great about making himself available and opening up properties to us on our schedule.
We appreciated his strategic advice on submitting offers that would make us competitive and set us apart from the pack, which was invaluable in a sellers' market where nearly every house was receiving multiple offers. Once we entered escrow the entire Tracy King team really streamlined the process and held our hands until everything was signed and done.
Chris helped us lock down our dream home and we will always be grateful. We cannot recommend Chris Vargas and Tracy King Realty enough.
Craig and Hanny, Buyers
Keely and Tracy work great together and made buying a house pretty great as well.
Having grown up in the Pacific northwest, I'm not afraid of a little wet weather, and Keely didn't hesitate to show me houses in the rain and humored me while I checked out the backyard of a house during the start of a storm.
As fun as looking at houses was, it was during the offer and negotiation phase that their expertise really came in handy. They were able to recommend tactics to put forward a strong offer, and suggested counter-offers that ultimately led to my offer being accepted. I added an extra challenge by leaving the country for two weeks, and being completely unreachable during seven of those days. We worked out a plan to make it work, and when I came back everything had moved along smoothly and I was able to jump right back into the process.
And now I have an awesome house thanks to them!
Keely and the Tracy King Team recently represented the buyers on a property we were selling in Highland Park. It was one of the smoothest sale escrows we've experienced, and we sell quite a few homes annually. From beginning to end they were professional, easy to get a hold of, met deadlines without needing to be asked (which is rare), and got the job done ahead of schedule - we closed a week early! Athena, the transaction coordinator, was a rockstar. We hope to get the opportunity to work with them again soon!
Jennifer, Cooperating Broker
As first time buyers, my wife and I really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. People can tell you that it's scary, crazy, etc. but until you're actually in the situation, it's hard to really comprehend.
Chris Vargas and the Tracy King Team were exceptionally transparent and pretty much walked us through our sale with ease. There were times where I was naturally hesitant about the whole process, but Chris was there to keep us calm and more than informed.
Most importantly, we were taken care of like we were family. That personal connection and being able to get a hold of Chris with any questions/concerns without him seeming bothered were what made this process as painless as it could be.
David and Amelia, Buyers
There's a reason all the reviews for Tracy and Keely are 5 stars. It's because they are the absolute best! We listed our home in Mount Washington with them and the process could not have been smoother. They've put together an amazing team and, outside of getting your house ready to show, they take care of everything. This is the Bentley of real estate brokers, people! Do yourself a favor, do everything they say! They know what they're talking about and if they suggest something it's for a reason. We had an insane amount of traffic at our open houses and we received multiple offers on our home. The only thing we're sad about now is that we won't be talking to them everyday anymore. Yes, they're that lovely.
Nicole and Jeff, Sellers
We found Tracy and Keely through many personal recommendations. More than one person told us they were the "Queens of Eagle Rock and NELA" so we were eager to meet them before we started our house hunt.
We were not disappointed. Tracy and Keely are extremely smart and know the market better than anyone else. They are honest and give direct advice, which gave us the confidence to trust ourselves to pull the trigger when we found the perfect house. The other thing that's great about Tracy and Keely is they know everyone. They have great recommendations for everything from lenders to inspectors and I guarantee if they're not selling the house you're in love with they know the other agent very well. They were available for our every question. They are punctual. They're kind/incredibly helpful.
We closed escrow on our house a couple weeks ago and my husband and I could not be happier with our entire experience. We love Tracy and Keely! If you're looking for an agent you will be in great hands with these two!
Eric and Kelsey, Buyers
Tracy King and Keely Myres are are one of the few Realtors I can endorse both as a business partner, a service provider and my personal Realtor. Keely just helped me close escrow on an investment property that she found me off market.
The process was thoroughly explained up front, well negotiated throughout and closed as smoothly as possible (considering I'm not the easiest client to deal with). I also work with this wonderful team as a preferred lender and have seen them help many clients close escrow on a dream house that maybe the client thought was out of reach. If you're buying or selling in the Eagle Rock or surrounding areas - you cannot go wrong with the Tracy King Team :-)
We worked with Tracy and her team for the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. I cannot say enough to describe how splendid Tracy and her whole team were in helping us through our 5 month epic journey of buying and selling. She was there for us at every hurdle and made things as smooth as they possibly could be. Completely professional and completely friendly. You do not have to look any further than Team Tracy! 5 Stars are not enough!
Jonnie and Julie, Buyers and Sellers
I worked with Keely recently to purchase a new home in Silver Lake. She and her team were nothing but professional throughout the process. As a first time buyer I had a ton of questions and they were incredibly responsive and thorough. They were able to make my offer competitive despite my limited wiggle room on price, and in an incredibly fast paced market! They had the inside scoop on how to get everything done quickly and who to work with. Most notably: they brought in their own title expert to do research on some questionable items that came up at the 11th hour, and their rep worked on a Sunday to make sure we had every last bit of info on record in order to put me at ease. Bottom line: I couldn't have asked for more!
Tracy and Keely turned what we thought would be an impossible task into a smooth and stress-free sale. We needed to sell our house immediately and had no time to prep it, but with their wisdom, experience, industry contacts and great advice, they had our house sold within the unbelievable time frame we were under. I can't say enough about their responsiveness, kindness, professionalism, understanding and helpfulness. We will soon be repeat clients with Tracy and Keely, as we can't imagine going through the process with anybody else. While they truly are the "Queens of Eagle Rock," we consider them our real estate Angels as well.
Kathy and Dave, Sellers
Tracy and Keely are like the Batman and Robin of real estate in NELA. And by that I mean they're REALLY GOOD, not that one of them is kind of an ineffectual ex-circus performer. They guided me through the full-contact buying process that is real estate today in Los Angeles with such care and detail that I barely asked a question throughout the whole process. They always knew what information needed to be explained at what point and most importantly, they always understood that the choice was mine.
So if you want honest and effective, look no further. These two are the only game in town.
Tracy and Keely and their team were a joy to work with. They answered all our questions throughout the process of selling our house. Tracy suggested specific improvements and strategies for how best to prepare the home and yard. Her knowledge of the area and the market was very clear in how she presented our property. All of the steps were handled efficiently, from the inspection and photography, to the appraisals and escrow. We always felt like we were in the best hands.
And-- we happily sold quickly and for more than we were asking.
We would definitely steer anyone interested in buying or selling to work with Tracy and her team.
Susan and Chris, Sellers
After I moved my 83-year old mom to Houston to be nearer to me, Keely and Tracy handled the sale of my mother's 100 year old craftsman in Eagle Rock. They took care of everything, even meeting with contractors to clean it out and retrofit it. I didn't have to travel to California at all, and the whole process couldnt have gone more smoothly, and exceeded my wildest expectations. The house sold for way over the asking price and I'm so glad I chose them as my realtor.
I saw Tracy Kings ads all over Eagle Rock and thought, "she knows how to market herself so well I imagine she will do the same for my home". I was so very right. I texted her without knowing her at all, and she responded right away! She and her associate were meeting with us the very next day to explain every option/aspect for selling our home in detail and with all the statistics to clarify and back up all decisions we would have to make. We hired Tracy and her team and immediately had one on one help with ideas on how to stage our home to get very best money for it. We decided to do staging ourselves, but just how they had recommended, and it came out amazing! Once we were ready to sell, the team worked like magic. The open houses were scheduled right away, the inspections as well, and all the documents ready to sign right away. Everything was a breeze with Team Tracy! She negotiated and got us our "dream number" and all within time frame we needed, which was very quick. She, and her team were nothing short of professional, courteous and very knowledgeable in every aspect of the sale of our home. She is also a delight to work with, very kind and sweet. Everyone in her team was kind and sweet! We highly reccomend Tracy King and her team for selling your property. Don't think twice, she WILL sell your home!!!
Karen and Enrique, Sellers
Tracy, Keely and their entire team did a fantastic job from the beginning to the end of the process of selling our house. In fact, the process was quite short, due to their talent and effort. For us, selling quickly was critical, as we had to move in a hurry after my wife got a new job in the Bay Area. The longer the house were to sit empty, the more money we'd be throwing away. It was one thing for Tracy and Keely to make a quick sale. It was another for them to get a great price, which they did. For pulling off that double, I thank them from the bottom of my heart, and I could not recommend them any more highly.
Jeff and Molly, Sellers
We spent a month looking for a realtor that was going to be our eyes and ears in a hot NELA market. One that was communicative and organized. From the moment we met Keely, we were impressed by her preparation and insight. After months of looking in NELA, we ended up changing direction and headed back to Sherman Oaks. Keely held ours hands through the entire process. She and her team were informed, accessible, and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Sean and Jaycie, Buyers
When we decided to put our house up for sale, we contacted Tracy King. She came out to our home and presented us with a strategy plan of how best to market, price and present our house. From the very beginning, her expertise and guidance through the entire process is what made a tedious and stressful transaction as smooth as possible. The woman knows her game! We are firm believers in allowing professionals to do their job, so we were quite confident selecting her to represent us. Boy did she deliver! Our home hit the market and was sold in the the first ELEVEN days after receiving FIVE multiple offers, all well above asking price. In this area of northeast Los Angeles, she is a giant. We weren't quite aware of just how well respected she is until we went to a few open houses where the mere mention of her name garnered praise from other realtors!
We were so impressed with her and her amazing team, that we had her partner, Keely Myres, represent us on the successful purchase of our subsequent home. Keely was equally as proficient and professional and we owe her many thanks for securing the purchase of our dream home.
Is there such a thing as a real estate celebrity team? The answer is a resounding yes! There is no doubt that we will use them again in the future and recommend them with the highest regard.
Alex and Jasmine, Sellers and Buyers
Tracy and Keely sold our rather “special”, sort-of-funky custom hillside home in Glassell Park in less than four weeks for more than we were asking. Tracy assured us: “This home isn’t for everyone, but it is for someone!” In her marketing materials, she turned all the strange things about the house that we would have thought would have gone against us into positive things. It was all so professionally and skillfully done from start to finish. Highly recommended!
Rob and Naomi Archibald, Sellers
We were disappointed to be priced out of Eagle Rock. After many dozens of open houses, Leslie and I started wanting to settle for less than we started out wanting. Your encouragement to have faith in the process and in your team paid off when you found us this lovely view home in Highland Park. It’s everything we wanted and more. When we hit snags during negotiations and inspection, you were tough as nails in advocating for us. Thank you Tracy and Keely. This is our dream house … and to think we would have missed out on this had we settled!
John and Leslie Groves, Buyers
The process of selling our run-down and neglected home in Mt. Washington was long and tedious. You and your team never showed us an ounce of irritability or impatience through all the open houses, our endless requests, our negativity and resistance to your approach; the same approach that ended up with three offers and selling the home at $20,000 above asking price. You are a true professional and everything your website says about you is true. Thank you to you and your staff for caring so much.
Louise Keller, Seller
Tracy just sold our home in Eagle Rock. She did a FABULOUS job. She worked assiduously to show our house, and was aggressive in following up with prospective buyers. She was also extremely patient with us (very nervous sellers), and helped walk us through the whole process. I must admit, I was not always the easiest client, but Tracy put up with my millions of questions and made sure I was always comfortable with our selling strategy. In short, I would recommend Tracy in a heartbeat!
Noam Glick, Seller
Thank you for everything you and your team did! You guys really made the transaction painless, drama-free and ultimately successful.
Joan Cumming, Seller
Tracy King and her team are courteous, efficient, and completely professional. They made selling my property very easy, and got me a better-than-expected price in a tough market. I wholeheartedly and without hesitation recommend Tracy, she is a real pro, and a pleasure work with.
Juan Vega, Seller
We listed our Eagle Rock home at 2030 Estes Road with Tracy King. She guided us through her pricing and marketing strategy, which made sense to our timing, pricing and family needs. We come on the market on April 3, were in escrow by April 11, and closed escrow on April 21 for $75,000 over what we hoped to get and $175,000 over what we were listed at. You more than earned your commission on this one. Job well done, Tracy!
Eric Lee, Seller
We are writing to praise Tracy King, who helped us sell our Glendora house and find our new Pasadena home. She worked tirelessly on our behalf, always professional and friendly at the same time throughout several trying times. Her advice was honest, in keeping with current practices, with no misleading or unethical statements and in the face of unpleasant behavior by another agent she remained dignified. We are proud to have had Tracy representing us and will confidently recommend her to others. We love the new house and feel she deserves the commission she received.
Don and Dorothy Morey
You can't imagine how delightfully surprised we were when we met Tracy King. Tracy is an agent whose picture should be next to the word "professional" in the dictionary. She worked diligently to sell our house at the price we wanted and to find us the home of our dreams to move into. Tracy took the time to really listen and we explained the things that would have to fall into place in order to enable us to sell our house and purchase a new one and then best of all-she made it happen. Whether it's marketing a home, negotiating a sale or purchase, or making sure that the escrow you're in actually closes, there is no one I'd rather have on my team than Tracy King. She's my hero!
Rick Mandl, Senior Pastor
I would like to express my appreciation for your efforts in selling my house. I found you to be honest, reliable, and willing to listen to my concerns throughout the selling process. I also recommend you to anyone looking a good Realtor to buy or sell a home.
I am writing to tell you about my experience with Tracy King. ...through months of searching, Tracy found my dream home. During the long, stressful ordeal of buying a home, I found Tracy to be a person of integrity, competence and lots of patience. ....You are fortunate to have an agent on board that represents your company with the level of competency that Mrs. King displays. Purchasing a home can be a stressful nightmare but thanks to Tracy King, I can look back on my experience with a smile. I plan to send lots of referrals your way and if in the future I need the assistance of a Realtor, I will , of course, call upon Tracy King.
Mrs. Orvette Walker
I would like to thank you once again for the tremendous effort and skill which has led to the sale of my father's house. Being that I'm out of town, I needed a realtor who could coordinate the many repairs needed to the house. You went far and beyond this role, providing me with excellent counsel and perspective. Your regular use of e-mail, along with faxes and phone calls, kept me current at every point of the process. Please feel free to use me as a reference.
Thank you for your presentation at our sales meeting this morning. You are very knowledgeable about the real estate business and the Eagle Rock homes market in particular. Thank you for your contribution in training your fellow agents, as well.
