Client Testimonials

We want to thank Mimi and Jon Torp for their professionalism and empathy when selling our long-time family home...

You can easily imagine that it was difficult for us to let go of so many memories. But Mimi and Jon were always there for us: kind, patient and understanding, and made the process run smoothly.

 

They never considered our property a mere "listing" but always a "home." We were lucky to have access to their vast experience and knowledge, and certainly their good humor as a remarkable support system.

 

They even found us the perfect buyers, who've grown to treasure the house as much as we did over the years.

 

The Torps will always be our first call for any future real estate needs, and we are happy to give them our most enthusiastic recommendation.

 

- April and Jim F.

Mimi and Jon were recommended to us by nearly a dozen colleagues who have worked with them over the past 20 years. We are the newest folks to have had a great outcome with them.

As buyers who are relatively new to LA, we were so grateful for their local knowledge and expertise. We will also add that we bought during COVID, and they were adaptable and made sure we never felt at risk.  

They were a delight to work with. Always responsive, kind, and creative. They saved us a lot of money throughout the entire home buying process. We could not be more grateful for Mimi and Jon — thank you!

 - Sean and Natasha Q.

It's been such a pleasure to work with Mimi and Jon on the purchase and sale of two homes in recent years...

 

Never for a moment in any of these transactions did I have a single doubt that Mimi and Jon were operating with the highest level of integrity, care, and thoughtfulness in how they approached things.

Even when a particularly challenging situation came up in the single family home purchase, they were able to manage the whole situation with a great quality of communication, honesty and transparency, along with some very smart strategic thinking.

They were recommended to me by colleagues, and I now recommend them to colleagues, friends, and neighbors at every opportunity I get.

If you're looking to find a place ranging from a starter home to more on the Westside, Mimi and Jon are so solid, not to mention fun and easygoing.

 

Highly recommended!

- Ed and Lauren W.

Mimi and Jon were recommended to us by many of my partner's colleagues, and they have a well-deserved reputation as being absolutely wonderful to work with. This was my first time buying a home and I have to say that Mimi and Jon made the process go as smooth as possible.

 

They are among the most thoughtful and kind people I have met in my life - the kind of folks you'd hope to have on your side (and particularly in an area that can be challenging and complex). Mimi and Jon were always excellent advocates for us throughout the purchasing process.

 

If it's any indication of how much they were looking out for us, here's a quick story. Our new building has an electric garage gate. Jon had raised a question while we were in escrow about whether the gate has a feature that allows it to open with a key in the event of an earthquake or other power outage.

 

After the sale closed, Mimi and Jon stopped by with some very thoughtful gifts and to check in on us. Although it had slipped off OUR radar, Jon gently reminded us about the garage issue again - Don't worry, Jon, we will find out! We are incredibly grateful for their work and support.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mimi and Jon on two different moves — including a cross-country relocation to Santa Monica — and quickly came to trust their guidance completely.

 

I strongly recommend them every chance I get. Even beyond Mimi’s encyclopedic knowledge of the area and her deep understanding of the market, her responsiveness and patience with my getting up to speed, and her savviness in navigating complex negotiations has proven invaluable. It seems like there’s no question about a move she can’t answer — including questions I didn’t even realize I should be asking.

 

Mimi and Jon are tremendous to have in your corner, not just as agents, but as neighbors and friends. Twice now, they have made my finding the right home as painless as possible, and they will be my first call if and when it comes time to find a new one.

- Davin C.

Mimi and Jon helped us find a great home on a tight timeline while we were still living in Northern California...

They were highly responsive to what we were looking for and provided very helpful guidance at every step of the home buying process. With their help, we found a home that met our needs  after just a few trips to the area.

 

They handled every step of the process with efficiency and care: identifying neighborhoods and homes that met our needs, putting together offers, negotiating, and closing. With their help, we moved into our new home ahead of when we initially thought was realistic.

 

We highly recommend Mimi and Jon and look forward to working with them again in the future!

- ER and Josh

Mimi and Jon Torp are fantastic real estate professionals that I strongly recommend! 

They took the time get to know our preferences for homes and were extremely responsive as we looked at many homes for many months.

 

Once we made a bid, they represented our interests well and helped greatly throughout the escrow process.

 

Even a year after we bought the house, Mimi has continued to be responsive and helpful as we needed recommendations for sewage work.

- Prachi J.

 

 

I have worked with Mimi and Jon four times now over the course of ten years and I will always go back when I need to sell or buy a property. 

They are so professional, responsive and they both make the process smooth. They almost feel like family at this point and I'd highly recommend to anyone looking around for an agent.

- Lauren K.

As executor of a dear friend’s trust, I was blessed to have Mimi and Jon helping me when it came time to sell her Brentwood home...

 

This was a whole new area for me and quite frankly felt the prospect to be tremendously daunting.  Mimi and Jon quickly overcame my concerns, expertly guiding the entire sale process through to a very hassle-free, profitable conclusion.  

I was particularly impressed by their patient handling of the questions and concerns of the numerous beneficiaries.  

 

Without hesitation, I have recommended them to friends who are also fellow trustees of their family trusts. 

 

Thank you, Mimi and Jon.

 

- S. P. 

Mimi and Jon Torp are key to the success of my rental property in a high intensity market...  

They are consummate professionals and have represented me for 10 years. I recommend them without reserve to represent the home owner's interest from listing the property to advising the client to screening and selecting a tenant.  

 

I trust their judgement, advice, execution of all documents and as a source of information for all my questions and concerns related to owner-tenant interaction. They have guided me through the process of pricing my property in good and bad markets and I rely heavily on their assessment of people.  

 

It is a pleasure to work with them. Should I decide to sell my property I will list with them.

- Beverly W.

Mimi and Jon are wonderful people and effective professionals...

 

They worked with us so patiently to help us find just the right place at the right price. We never felt pressured to compromise our very particular requirements. During negotiations they were both sensitive and savvy.

 

Even after the  purchase was complete they helped us with the various details that made the house our home. We most definitely would seek their help again if we ever were to sell or buy.

- Cal D.

When I moved from apartment life to home ownership, my goal was simply to be a home owner. During the process, Mimi and Jon not only treated me like a valued client, but as a good friend...

I had not defined my needs, wants or desires, only the price range I could afford. I fell in love with the idea of home ownership without thinking through the details and realities of such a lifestyle change.  

 

Their patience and smart suggestions helped me refine the elements important to my living needs and comfort. They were always available to answer questions and skillfully guided me through the process of the most important purchase I have ever made.

 

I would recommend Mimi and Jon Torp without hesitation.

- Edwin S.

Mimi and Jon found me a wonderful house in Venice a number of years ago after I had frankly given up hope that my dream home was even out there...

 

Their negotiation skills were remarkable, and they expertly finessed the finest details. Things I'd never even thought of considering.  

 

When I was transferred to New York last year, the Torps represented the sale of my beloved home and true to form, found me an excellent buyer with a true penchant for my designer touches and a keen passion or preserving the architectural integrity of 1926 Spanish gem.  

 

Thank you, Mimi and Jon! 

 

- E. Bomberger

Jon and Mimi developed a deep and close personal understanding of our Real Estate needs and diligently pursued finding the right property based on our very specific needs and wishes...  

This required patience, a deep knowledge of the market and a very close and personal communication to help us make the right choice.

 

We never felt any pressure but, rather, a genuine desire to help meet all our needs. 

We worked this at a distance, since we live on the other side of the country thus we had to rely on their knowledge of the market and on a relationship based on trust and professionalism. Once we made a choice, Jon and Mimi helped us in every step of the process making the whole operation much easier than could be expected.  

Jon and Mimi are professional, caring and highly ethical in their work.

 

Thanks a lot, Jon and Mimi; thanks to your help we are now enjoying a beautiful property. 

 

- Juan and Linda A.

Mimi and Jon were wonderful when we were selling our townhouse...

They made the process as painless as possible, always making sure that the other realtor did what he needed to do to expedite the sale.

 

In fact, we told the after the closing that we thought they deserved both halves of the commission. 

 

We will have no hesitation in engaging them again if we ever buy another house."

Mimi and Jon Torp are expert realtors...

 

They helped my wife and I secure our dream home with an amazing 180 degree view of the ocean, city and mountains. 

 

We knew absolutely nothing about the housing market or purchasing a home, and Jon and Mimi provided excellent advice and help during every stage of our purchase.

 

Understanding the intricacies of 'the mortgage' is  like learning a new language, and these guys were kind teachers who tutored us very well.  

 

Thanks so much, Mimi and Jon!

- Bill and Cheryle S.

Dear Mimi and Jon, a belated thank you for the fantastic job you both did helping us buy our first house...

 

You were steady as a rock, even in times when we thought we might lose it!  Your sage advice kept us on the straight and narrow path to a wonderful conclusion. 

 

We loved working with you both and hope you'll stay close in touch!

- Emily, Robin and Colin
