Coshow Real Estate Group Review

Coshow Real Estate Group Review

In this Coshow Real Estate Group Review we take a look at one of San Diego’s most trusted real estate companies. Coshow Real Estate group has been around since the year 2006. Coshow Real Estate Group has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2009. So Coshow Real Estate Group is still a fairly new company. Which hasn’t seen to effected Coshow Real Estate Group at all. Usually it takes brand new companies a while to really find their stride. That’s if they don’t crash and burn immediately after the launch. Coshow Real Estate Group’s stamp of approval from the BBB comes with an A+ rating. Which is an incredibly hard title to gain and maintain. Let’s jump right into it.

CoShow Real Estate Group Review: The Team

One of the keys to creating and sustaining a successful company is having good leadership. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in situations where I’ve had to deal to with incompetent people who are put into leadership roles. Especially if it’s a case where many people are relying on that said person. It’s just the worst. Coshow Real Estate Group is a ship being steered by a good captain. Carla Coshow (Broker/Owner of Coshow Real Estate Group) has been in the real estate game since 1978. That kind of experience mixed with the integrity and  care she has for her clients is more than most can ask for. On top of that she’s brought on top quality agents to assist her at Coshow Real Estate Group. Agents with the same integrity and vision. Agents who actually do care about helping you find the perfect home.

Coshow Real Estate Group Review: Online Presence

This is probably the biggest thing that stuck out to me.Coshow Real Estate Group has a great website and credibility in the online world is great. I’ve notice that newer companies always have a greater online presence than older companies. It’s a weird thing, because much older companies generally have horrendous looking sites with limited navigational features, yet they’re still doing either just as good or better than the newer companies. That’s purely just their credibility. They’ve got so much, that their lack of everything else that is so heavily demand in society is sort of forgiven. The thing I always look for in a website is engaging features.  Not just buttons to press and lines to reads, but things that will capture the consumer visually and get them excited about the prospect of buying a house. Coshow Real Estate Group definitely delivers on that end. Coshow Real Estate Group has a site that is incredibly easy to navigate through. There’s no clutter or annoying ads. Just the information you need as a consumers. There’s even a list of Coshow Real Estate Group agents with pictures and everything. Coshow Real Estate Group is very transparent, which is good. You want to stay away from companies that are hiding in the shadows.

Coshow Real Estate Group Review: Consumer Testimonials

Part of the process in choosing a real estate group to go with is determining whether or not you can trust them. Buying a house is a huge investment. You want to make sure you’re in good hands. What better way to make sure than by reading customer testimonials. It’s a great way to gain insight on the consumers experience that you are most definitely going to have. Here’s what folks are saying about Coshow Real Estate Group. One Consumer said, “Coshow Real Estate Group helped us find the perfect home, and kept us up to date with things going on. After closing, they kept in touch, and stuck around to answer any questions we might have had. Coshow Real Estate Group also gave great advice. These people really know real estate.” Another said, “Coshow Real Estate Group has been super helpful with my condo. They are incredibly helpful, dependable and fun to work with. I highly recommend them.” Definitely sounds like a place you might want to give a try.

Coshow Real Estate Group Review: Conclusion

All in all, Coshow Real Estate Group seems honest and from what we’ve found online, they’re most likely to treat you right. If you’re in the market for a new home, give them a call.  In this Coshow Real Estate Group Review, The CFRB gives this real estate company a 5 star rating.

Greenline Realty Review

In This Greenline Realty Review,  we take a look at a real estate company that has gained some notoriety in the online world. Greenline Realty offers professional real estate services in residental sales, rentals, and property management. They have over 20 years of experience under their belt. They claim that no job is too small or large, and that they are the ticket to headache free property management. As of lately, they’ve been giving more headaches than taking then away. Greenline Realty is currently rocking a 1.5 out 5 star rating on yelp. You don’t get that kind of rating after a few salty review. you get that kind of rating after consistent complaints and concerns from consumers are not responded to. We have seen in the past, companies with terrible wrap sheets online, turn everything around. All because they started to listen to their consumers. Their online rating tells me of two things. 1. They are completely unaware of the turmoil that is brewing online or 2. They simply do not care. I have a feeling it’s the latter of the two. Don’t take out word for it. Read what consumers are saying.

One Consumer had found an apartment they loved, but the Greenline Realty had quoted her a price $1000 less than the actual cost, a fact they learned after they had given a deposit. “They informed me that they would not be refunding my money and that we HAD to use them as our realtors if we wanted to see our money again. Sort of sounds like blackmail? They were clearly not very good at their jobs, I didnt want to use them, But I had to. I found another apartment, signed the lease, etc. They refused me a copy of my lease over and over. They stood me up when I had meetings to get it. I eventually let them know that I worked at the housing count, and all of a sudden they felt like cooperating. How surprising.” These are the stories that make me sick. What kind of company forces a person to do business with them. They are clearly not trying to create a good customer experience. No, it seems that their only goal is to make as much money as possibly, by good people like  cash cows. We definitely recommend that you seek another company if you are in the market for some sort of housing.

Tips For Choosing A Real Estate Company/Agent

We know that a huge part in most adults life, whether they’re single or married, is finding a home. A place where you can call your own. A humble abode in which you can be proud of. If you’ve ever bought a home before, you know exactly how hard it is to be a first time buyer. You want the best you can possibly find for the greatest price.  You’re so determined to find that deal, that overlook a few things, and trust a few too many people. Then you end up settling for a home that is still okay, but isn’t exactly what you want. You ended up with that house, because you’re young and naive, and were probably strong handed into a deal by a real estate professional who was really just interested in the big fat commission they’re going to make off of you.  When hopping into the house hunt for the first time, you have to remember to cover your bases. You have to be smart, and vigilant. You are a fish in the ocean, and all the sharks want to eat you. Here’s a few tips for choosing a real estate company or professional, so you don’t get taken advantage of.

1. Research

I wasn’t sure if i should save this for last, because it is probably the most important. It’s also the most obvious things to do, but you would be surprised by the amount of people who don’t research and just sort jump in and hope for the best. Which isn’t really the safest things to do. The first thing to look for would be how long the company/agent has been around for. If they’re still fairly new, and don’t have a lot of clients it could mean that they are using you as practice, which isn’t good if you’re looking for the best possible service. The best thing to do is find  someone who is engaged in a specific area and price range. They also need to have a strong market presence.

2. Check the Licensing

This is a great way to find out if a specific agent is actually licensed, and if there have been any disciplinary actions or complaints towards the agent/company you’re considering.

3. The Right Credentials 

Depending on what you’re looking for, there is different areas that real estate agents specialize in. Kind of like how some doctors specialize in one thing and other doctors specialize in another. It’s sort of the same with real estate agents. There’s 3 main designations that fall under this umbrella. CRS “(Certified Residential Specialist), In addition to their general training, these agent specialize in residential real estate. ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative)  These agents completed additional education in representing buyer’s in a transaction. SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist). These agents completed training in helping buyers and sellers in the 50-plus age range.

4. Talk with Previous Clients

After all you’re research, if you’re still not convinced or if you’ve still go a funny feeling, check to see what previous clients have to say. What better way to get insight, that by talking to someone who has experienced what you’re about to experience. You don’t even have to talk to anyone. In this day and age most testimonials are all online.

5. Look at their current listings

You can look at how closely the agent’s listings mirror the property you want to buy or sell. Are they in the same area? Is the price range similar? And does the agent have enough listings to indicate a healthy business, but not so many that you’d be just another number.

There you go folks! a few tips for you. Hopefully they will help steer you in the right direction. Happy House Hunting. Check Our Resources page for a list of trusted companies, which have received 4 stars or better. Check Our Reviews page for more insight into trusted companies.

Swift Loan Funding Review

In this Swift Loan Funding Review, we take a look at a company that specializes in Mortgage Loan Services. They cover everything from refinancing to Mortgage Insurance. It may not be their strongest suit, but they can even help you out with your debt consolidation needs. In our investigation, we found that Swift Loan Funding has a very strong online presence. Which is important for any company to thrive in this day and age. It’s a great place to go, if you’re considering doing business with them. What we loved most about their website, is the blog section. A blog section on a business website is so important. It’s another way to not only capture consumers, but also keep them coming back for. That is, if the writing is any good. It also establishes a connection with the online world. When you open up and give consumers a little look inside the way things work, they really appreciate that. Transparency with consumers is a great way to earn their trust.

Swift Loan Funding has only been BBB accredited for 7 days! So we will be monitoring their status from here on out. This is when the true test of quality begin. Remember folks, the BBB doesn’t hand out accreditations, and then that’s it. They are constantly reviewing companies, making sure that they meet set requirements and standards. They do it all for you! We’ve seen companies that have been accredited for decades, and then we’ve seen companies who have really dropped the ball. From what we’ve heard Swift Loan Funding is treating their consumer’s right! One Consumer stated, “If you need a mortgage loan or want to refinance, this is the place folks! My wife and I had such a bitter taste in our mouth from our last mortgage guy’s screw ups. We actually ended up in shock ourselves how smooth it went. It is so nice when you have someone you can trust, walk you through one of the biggest financial decisions of your life and make a very stressful process not so stressful.” Sure sounds like a top notch company to work with. Bravo, Swift Loan Funding.

In this review of Swift Loan Funding, The CFRB Gives this life insurance company a 5 star rating.

Independent Capital Management Inc. Review

In This Review of ICM (Independent Capital Management Inc.) , we take a look at a trusted finance company that has been proudly servicing the public for years now. ICM was created for you. Built with the foresight and vision for the future. Not all wealth management and financial services firms are the same. They sure have set out to build a firm that is unique. This company offers retirement planning, education planning, financial planning, estate planning, loans, real estate and all types of insurance. Which is something that we love to see. A company that has diversity. We’ve seen it attempted before. Unfortunately, most companies come tumbling down, due to the great task of juggling all of those balls. ICM has really learned how to do it the right way. From what we have seen, they have a proven system that consumers are happy with.

We really wanted to go behind to scenes to see what employees were saying about ICM. One Employee stated, “ICM has an excellent business model based upon being independent. Being non-proprietary allows you to truly offer what is in the best interest of the client. In addition, the relationships you build with your clients are very rewarding. I have been with the company for 8 years now and have grown professionally and personally in ways you can not working for someone else.” Another Employee stated, “I have been with ICM for over 6 years now and it has been an exciting transition. Helping people with their financial concerns is quite rewarding. Another great aspect about working at ICM is the flexibility in hours. I actually can run an errand during the week instead of the weekend.”

I found it very interesting to hear that ICM allows their employees personal errand time. To the untrained mind, that would appear to be very unprofessional. To us, it shouts confidence! It says that ICM believes in their employees and trusts them, knowing that regardless of what they do during the day, they will always meet the cut! Which is great for an employee in this kind of industry, where commission is based solely on your performance. They’re not always under the thumb. They get to work their magic when the time is right! That kind of relationship with employees is a special thing to have. Bravo, ICM.

In this review of Independent Capital Management Inc., The CFRB gives this debt consolidation company a 5 star rating.

My Realty Deals Review – Scam!

In This Review of My Realty Deals, we’d like to talk about an important issue that often comes up in the world of business and consumerism. That’s the issue of scams. Times are changing; technology is constantly advancing, creating new outlets for scammers. Not only are their more outlets, but scammers are more intelligent than ever before. Instead of just making empty promises and then taking your money, scams are now elaborate schemes that pull on the heart strings of innocent people. It’s truly scary to see how thin the line is between a reliable company and a complete scam has become. That’s why it’s so important to really investigate a company if you are considering doing business.

Here’s an example of a definite scam company called My Realty Deals. The consumer report is disturbing, and shows you the vulgarity behind these scams. The Testimonial states, “My roommate just called these people when she saw a craigslist ad about an apt they were leasing. A man picked up and told her she must register and pay 180 dollars to see the listings. She had never heard of this before and said she would think about it, he immediately followed this by cursing her out in a devilish voice.” They were probably going to take her money and run! Then the man on the phone cursed her out. These people really have no regard for human life. They are just sharks looking for helpless people to take advantage of, so they can get rich. As much as we are disturbed and disappointed, we are not surprised. Regardless of what industry you’re in, there’s always two very different side of every spectrum. So if you every come across companies like My Realty Deals, just walk the other way.

In this review of My Reality Deals, The CFRB Gives this real estate company a 0 star rating.
