Testimonials

“My wife and I just purchased our first home with the help of Jodi Rubin and associate Greg Erpenbach. Both Jodi and Greg made the process so smooth and brought so much knowledge to the table, it made home buying pretty easy! They were always available to take our calls and offered valuable advice to us during such a big purchase. I HIGHLY recommend Jodi and Greg’s work and know I will pass their information along to anyone in my community that is looking for top notch agents.”

“Jodi and team represent you, not the sale. Honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable, detail oriented, will never hesitate to walk away from a bad deal. Hard to find. Highly recommend. They helped me with a purchase of a 4 unit building, was complicated, market is very heated, so Jodi’s expertise was critical to making sure we got a good deal, closed on time, and without complication.

“Jodi has been our realtor for 10 years and we are so incredibly lucky to have found her. She’s passionate about her clients and is relentlessly thorough, efficient and prompt. She’s open, transparent and extremely honest and has made the process of both buying and selling our homes as seamless and stress free as possible. She has wonderful relationships with a huge roster of contractors and suppliers who we’ve used on numerous occasions always with great results. I can’t recommend her highly enough to anyone either selling or buying.

-Alice Wade
Hancock Park, CA

 

I am a “you need to prove it to me” kind of person and very hands-on in general. So, these traits became even more accentuated when I was selling my home since that is such an important transaction. I compliment Jodi for recognizing my needs, adapting to my approach and speaking to my concerns in the transaction rather than the other way around. As to the sale itself, the results say all you need to know. The house sold in a couple of weeks with an all cash buyer and closed within 30 days after that. So, I’d highly recommend Jodi not just for the end result but also for her understanding of the concerns and needs of her clients.

“Jodi is a true pro. She’s smart, tough and fair. We never once felt pressured and she was always on OUR side. Her knowledge of the area, what’s important and how to take action, was tremendous. She will not try to talk you into anything, she treats clients like clients. Jodi put my wife and I into our dream house, which wasn’t a palace and wasn’t initially on our list. But we thought it through with her and she was a perfect guide. She helped us understand the pros and cons and we went into the process eyes open. We could not recommend her more highly, she is the best!

-Brian & Aynsley Toombs
Hollywood Hills, CA

 

Our task was not an easy one. We needed to list our home and secure a solid offer at a certain price point while simultaneously not losing out on the new home we had our eyes on. Jodi listed our home at the perfect price point which secured us FIVE offers in a single open house and seamlessly got our offer accepted on the new home for our family. She remained completely unflappable. She secured the best inspectors and moved both processes through on a very precise timeline without missing a beat. All the while, she remained a calming presence for us and our two small children when we felt the stresses of uprooting our lives. She followed up on every inspection report and even checked in on us multiple times after we moved in to see how we were settling in. I will only use Jodi Rubin and her team for our home purchases moving forward and would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

Jodi is a one-of-a-kind Real Estate Agent. She works tirelessly around the clock on behalf of her clients, ensuring that she has the most comprehensive, up-to-the-minute data. She is knowledgeable, smart, honest, and strategic, and works incredibly well with all parties in even the most complex negotiations. We have bought and sold seven homes with Jodi throughout the past 12 years, and have referred her to several friends who have used her with great success. We couldn’t ask for a better agent.

-Bill & Beth McClinton
Encino, CA

 

Jodi is a true professional and made this entire experience go smoothly. She was very patient with us as we began the search process. She sent us potential properties, answered all our questions, gave great feedback and advice on properties we liked, etc. She was a wealth of knowledge and great at educating us about the entire process. When we fell in love with our house, she helped us navigate a multiple offer situation and made sure we got the credits we deserved. There are so many moving parts. Having someone so patient, caring and trustworthy representing us was really helpful in minimizing anxiety and stress. We love our new house, we highly recommend Jodi and her team. A professional attitude and positive energy goes a long way.

-Scot & Stephanie Rubin

“As a first-time buyer, Jodi took the fear and anxiety out of purchasing a new home. She is an experienced expert when it comes to understanding the ins and outs of LA’s vast array of pockets and neighborhoods, and was exceptionally savvy at balancing my location desires with my financial and amenities needs. I felt every step of the way that I was in the best possible hands, and that Jodi genuinely had my best interest at heart throughout the process. She dedicated an incredible amount of time and attention toward finding the options that felt like the best fit. She was always direct and open with me about the pros and cons of the listings we viewed and when we ultimately landed in escrow on the right place she went the extra mile to make certain that I fully understood the mountain of documents and the intricacies of the process. Soup to nuts, the entire process went flawlessly thanks to her. When you work with Jodi, you feel (and benefit from) how truly invested she is. Her knowledge, professionalism and empathy are rare gems in the industry and I cannot recommend her highly enough to prospective home buyers.

“I am honored to write an unsolicited testimonial for Jodi Rubin as a realtor with Sotheby’s. I was introduced to Jodi in June of 2015. We had to sell the long-time family home after mom’s death. A family friend recommended her to me.

After a lovely first visit we began the job of getting things done. I received loads of assistance and advice as to how to proceed with respect to a number of issues that arose during the transaction. Everything was done very professionally and in a very compact time frame. If either of us needed something it was done in very short order consistently. The ball was never dropped.

We suffered through an unfortunate situation with the buyer’s agent who did something both illegal and unethical. I had tremendous support and advice as we muddled our way through all of this unfortunate situation and it was always done professionally and with forethought, expertise, and compassion.

We finally sold the home and the transaction is complete. I am very satisfied with how we operated and would recommend Ms. Rubin to anyone in the Los Angeles area who wants a first rate professional realtor.”

“Like most first-time home buyers, we had a dream home in mind, but understood we would need to compromise. Instead, Jodi just found us our dream home. We were very spoiled working with Jodi as first-time home buyers. We heard horror stories about Los Angeles real estate, and the lengthy process of buying. Jodi exceeded all expectations: Not only did she find the perfect house very quickly, it was priced exactly in our budget. This is largely due to her expertise, but also because she is approachable and great at communicating. She listens, and truly cares about our happiness. When you’re working with a friend, the process becomes an exciting adventure instead of an exhausting chore.”

-Nelson Franklin and Georgia Mischak

“Jodi Rubin is a realtor par excellence. She is highly knowledgeable and skilled, tireless, completely devoted to doing the best anyone can do, and/or so it seemed, always there when, or sometimes even before, she was needed. Jodi is an authority on Beverly Hills real estate. She has unbeatable resources, including the best and most reliable crafts people. Within days she both helped us acquire, in the most economical manner, a new, spacious condominium and also sold our house at a very satisfactory price. From knowing all about construction, wiring and plumbing, to helping us find a new home for our plants, Jodi was outstanding. There is nothing negative to say about her since, in addition to all her abilities, she is a warm and caring person and a delightful person to know.”

-Kate and Stephen Geller

I have worked with Jodi Rubin as my agent for over 15 years. Jodi found the perfect tenant to lease our large home too, when we wanted to downsize and travel after our 4 daughters had grown up. I can’t say how wonderful and professional she is at finding me the exact property I am looking for! Jodi found me a gorgeous 3 bedroom and 3 bath apt. With tons of light and a building that accepted my 3 pugs!! Would definitely recommend Jodi over and over again.

-Cindy Ker

Jodi Rubin was quite amazing during the process of renting our house in Studio City. She was incredibly helpful in advising us how best to stage the house for ultimate viewing, and supported us all along the process. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with her.

-Jonathan Ker

Jodi did everything correctly. She set up a marketing brochure that made me want to Lease my own property. Having been in Real Estate for over 50 years, Jodi made the experience a pleasure. Have recommended her to friends.

“Buying a home can be…complicated. I was a first time buyer, and stumbled on Kevin & Jovana by cold looking up “realtors in LA.” There is really nothing I can write about Kevin here that can quite convey how necessary having him on my team was, but I’ll try: Kevin and Jovana were there with me 100% of the way. I already had my eye on a condo when I contacted them, and they were there to check it out immediately; they set me up with a great lender; they wrote up an offer and helped with a very strong negotiation; they were there from the beginning of the process until the very end, and were always immediate in their responses, in all forms of communication. Simply put, they made the process simple, manageable, and even enjoyable. I wouldn’t look for my next home without Kevin and Jovana.”

– Ilya Polyakavic

 

“We could not have had a better experience working with Jodi on selling our house. She went above and beyond when it came to staging our house and getting it ready for photos and open houses. She also had great suggestions for touch ups on the house that really made a difference. She is professional, kind, patient and just an all around pleasure to work with. She also has a fantastic team; between her and her team, you will never feel alone in the process and you can be sure that they have your back when it comes to getting you the best price for your house. Jodi is also the best at working around busy schedules, babies, dogs, etc. Selling a house can be an intrusive process, but she made it easy and bearable and respected our schedules and our privacy. Not all brokers are created equal and my experience is that Jodi is one of the best in the profession.”

-Joanne Wu and Adam Wright

 

“Kevin and Jovana helped us navigate our first-home-buying experience with tremendous expertise. They implicitly understood what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect home for us. As first time buyers, there was a lot we didn’t know, but Kevin and Jovana handled all of our questions and concerns (no matter how small) with care and consideration. They truly understand the market and their insight into specific properties was invaluable. We would recommend Kevin and Jovana without hesitation.”

-Amy Sloan

 

“Hello, my name is Allen Haynes and I would love to share with you the most incredible experience that one could imagine.I had lost my wife of fifty years and after two years of dealing with our beautiful home alone I was ready to sell the house we had built together in 1972. To say I want to sell my house was hard enough, this was the home we raised three children, established the memories that now I will carry for the rest of my life.I needed help.

My son gave me the phone number of Jodi Rubin who worked with Sotheby’s.  She had helped him with selling his house, and he loved working with her.

I met with Jodi and very quickly realized why my son had found his experience so rewarding.  Our meeting was cordial, informative and took any concern of what I was about to enter into away.  After the next meeting I agreed to enter an agreement with Jodi to sell my house.  We had discussions concerning what we should ask for the property based on a comparison’s of similar houses in the neighborhood as well as current economic trends. Jodi helped me to prepare my house to be shown in videosand multiple forms of advertising.  The very first day my home was shown, over ninety people came to see the opening.  It took Jodi nine days to sell my house.  We had many offers and four over asking.  Every offer was discussed, based on many factors.  Once the sale was complete Jodi was there to help me to clear out my furniture and “stuff” of over forty-five years.  Thank you Jodi, you are amazing, I will never forget this experience.”

-Allen Haynes

 

“I had not moved in 20 years, and knew nothing about buying and selling homes. Jodi not only answered my seemingly endless questions quickly, knowledgeable and with patience, but was a dream to work with. She always had my back and made all the right calls. She made it as simple and easy a process as possible. She made everything I needed happen. I know it wouldn’t have been this way with any other person representing me.”

-Sharon Liveten

 

“Your efforts ranging from helping us to deal with all the household and personal possessions, preparing the house for showing, leading us through the analysis of the all the offers, and finally to concluding the sale were truly outstanding and far exceeded our expectations.”

John and Ann Parkin

 

“Finding Jodi 7 years ago in this real estate market was a ‘godsend.’ As a friend and a broker she went (and goes) the extra mile to ensure our investments provide both a good return on equity and the right place to call home. We will never buy a home from anyone else.”
- Renata Simril

 

“Jodi is just the best. It took me years to find the right home. She was with me all the way. She helped me find the house and purchase the house. She then did an incredible job helping me sell my old house. It’s a difficult and emotional process. I thank God she was with me.”
- Sally

 

“Jodi works from a deep intuition and knowledge base. She just gets it. I wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
- Barbara Barry

 

“Jodi Rubin and her entire team always had me in mind whenever looking at real estate. They understood my needs and truly listened to me. I enjoyed working with her and the group she has put together. There was never a lag time in communication. It is truly impressive.”
- Sue L. Steinberg

 

“Once Jodi Rubin is your agent, she is your agent for life. What impressed me was that I could rely on Patricia long after I was in my house for any kind of advice or help. She really cares about setting the right person up with the right house to make a home. She cares more about the right fit for you than the commission, and in these times, that is rare. I consider her not only my real estate agent but my friend.”
- Judy Stakee

 

“We just bought our second house with Jodi and this latest experience just reinforced my regard for Patricia’s expertise in all matters of real estate. Throughout the process, Patricia and her skilled, dedicated team were professional, responsive, knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile to meet our (often unrealistic) expectations. The situation was extraordinarily complex given that I closed on my old (for which Jodi got us more than we expected by the way!) and the new house within two days of each other. However, as I should have expected, Jodi and Co. made everything go like clockwork, with no major or even minor snags. I would highly recommend Jodi and her team to anyone thinking of buying or selling their house.”
- Kristopher J. Brown

 

“I have worked with Jodi on countless transactions and there is nobody else I would consider working with. She has a professional integrity which is unparalleled. The consistent quality of her work reflects the high standards she holds. Her longevity in the business is a testament to her knowledge and instincts of the Real Estate market. She truly is in a class by herself.”
- Dan Rich

 

“Jodi did much more than find houses for me to look at. She educated me in what to look for in a house. Walk through one house with her and you’ll be astonished at what she sees.”
- David Israel

 

“Jodi Rubin was invaluable to our house search. Her extraordinary patience and determination made the arduous task of finding a new home not just tolerable, but highly successful.”
- Laura Slovin

 

“Jodi Rubin is a gem. She will crawl under a house and tell you not to buy it. She will go on the roof and tell you not to buy it. She may simply walk in and tell you, ‘Don’t buy this house.’ But when she finds something that’s perfect for you, not only will she encourage you to buy it, she’ll make it possible. Jodi is a pro at negotiations, both buying and selling. She’ll make all the paperwork a breeze, explaining everything with the utmost patience, always making sure she’s covered every based (ie: dotted every i and crossed every t). I recommend Jodi to everyone I know who’s looking to buy or sell for all these reasons, plus… she just has a certain sixth sense you won’t find anywhere else. It might be a dream, or just a ‘feeling’ but I’m quite sure she’s never wrong.”
- Noa Ehrlich

 

“Professional, pleasant and seasoned – It doesn’t get any better than Jodi Rubin. Her experience, savvy and persistence helped us acquire properties that we really wanted and are very happy owning. She is honest, open, and very knowledgeable. They listened carefully to us, never pushed, pointed out things we needed to know, and patiently helped us search long and hard until she found what we wanted. She was clever and relentless in closing difficult deals. Her integrity and well honed ability to always do what is best for the client makes her tops in the business.”
- John & Pat McDowell

 

“Jodi has been the most professional real estate agents with whom we have ever dealt. She is incredibly dedicated to the welfare of her clients, and sees to every detail of a transaction until it comes to fruition. She loves the real estate business and it is evident from the results she produce. She helped us find some incredible properties, and we wouldn’t consider buying or selling a property without her, she’s a gem.”
- Steven Brown & John Bitrick

 

“Jodi has been our trusted real estate adviser for the past 10 years. Whether seeking advice on a particular property, insight on a market trend or ways to maximize our resale value, her council and guidance has been an invaluable asset to us as our family’s housing needs have evolved over the years. We highly recommend Jodi – She is great!”
-Robert Jordon
CEO, Knowledge Management Systems

 

“I’m a single woman who owns my home, and I work in the up-and-down entertainment industry. One day I’m thinking about upgrading to a mansion, the next day I’m talking about downsizing to something cozier. No matter what I say, Jodi finds a way to make it all make sense. Their manner is so comforting, you might forget she’s a savvy expert. Jodi is so much more than a Realtor, they instantly became a trusted friend who made me feel like I could play this real estate game and win.”
- Jill Blackstone

 

“I was so relieved to meet Jodi as I was about to sell my second property in Los Angeles and I had such a bad experience with the last sale, I was really nervous about who I might get. Jodi is so efficient and as the wonderful woman who recommended her said, ‘Jodi breathes, sleeps and eats Real Estate.’ Not only on her know how but her personal touch was like having a family member working with you, she cares just that much. I love working with her and as she has sold and purchased a property for me all in one year, I don’t think we will be stopping anytime soon.”
- Gabrielle Fitzpatrick

 

“We love and adore Jodi Rubin. She has become part of our extended family. We’ve bought two houses with her and we’re constantly tempted to buy another one just because we like having her around so much. She’s as hardworking and conscientious as anyone we’ve everrr met, she has impeccable taste and great instincts. Jodi fights so hard for her clients, it’s sort of like having your mother as your broker — without the baggage.”
- Richard & Jody Silverman

 

“My brother and I were the receivers of a Trust that included a piece of property. I did not think that the property was sellable. I called my friend Jodi and she came and set a price on the property. I was a little unsure that we would get our asking price. Not only did she get it sold within about a week, she got over the asking price! I have every confidence in her to sell my other properties when I am ready.”
- Ynez Reinschmidt

 

“Jodi is a pleasure to work with. She always understands just what I am looking for in a property, and respects my time. Her experience and professionalism take much of the stress out of the process. I wouldn’t think of working with anyone else.”
- Erika Johnson

 

“Jodi couldn’t have found us a more perfect home. As soon as she received our ‘shopping list’ she immediately knew the home that we were looking for. She has an uncanny ability of matching people with the right house. She was referred to us from someone who also has the perfect home for himself and his family – their dream home. Patricia is also a dream to work with. We will always recommend her to anyone who is in the market for a new home. You should too!”
- Tracey Reid

 

“I don’t know about anybody else, but the process of looking for and buying a house is an incredibly stressful experience. If you are working with someone who is not in tune with your needs, creatively and emotionally, the experience can be unbearable. Which brings me to Jodi… Jodi has been next to me on every house purchase that I have made here in America. When we first met she took the time to get to know me, to understand my needs. Once armed with this knowledge she was able to select the appropriate properties for me to view. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
- Jonathon Ker

 

“Jodi’s hard word and professional knowledge enabled my partner and I to obtain the house of our dreams. In this difficult market, Jodi helped guide us through the competitive buying process. Whether you are buying or selling, I’d whole heartedly recommend working with Jodi.”
- Jim Ring

 

“Well, we did it! For two years now buying a home was a crazy dream, and you have helped make it a reality. We’d been through several other agents and weren’t able to pull the trigger. We truly believe that your experience, personality and integrity gave us the confidence we needed in order to take the leap. Your held our hands, kept us from freaking out, helped put things into perspective, and continued to look out for us and fervently protected our interests. For this, we are filled with gratitude. And of course, both Jodi and John’s help, advice and 24-hour availability were absolutely invaluable. What a fantastic team! We know it is your job, but it’s clear that you really enjoy and take pride in what you do – and that you do it for a deeper sense of purpose and satisfaction. For that, we thank our lucky stars to have found you.”
- Kit & Mark Stegemann
