General Counsel at Lamonica's Pizza & VP Marketing at Wells Fargo Auto
Tregg Rustad is the epitome of a great real estate agent. After working with another agent for one year we looked long and hard for a new agent that was professional, smart, patient, honest, hard-working, a good negotiator and most importantly– trustworthy. Tregg came highly recommended by a close friend of ours. After meeting with Tregg for the first time, we knew he was going to be the right agent for us. We were right, after a little over eight months we bought a home. We are having a housewarming party next week and Tregg was the first person on the guest list. Real estate agents make money if you buy or sell your home. They don’t make money showing you homes, doing research, calling agents, calling mortgage brokers, scheduling inspectors, etc. Nevertheless, Tregg did all of this and more. He never pressured us to buy. In fact, it was not rare for Tregg to talk us out of a place, because of he just didn’t think it was right for us. We were not easy clients! There were about six people involved in our decision to buy a home. Tregg spoke to all six people regularly, even when he was on vacation. Moreover, we were not the most decisive clients. We were in escrow on multiple homes which we backed out of before we finally settled on the right home. Once we finally found the right place, thanks to Tregg, our escrow period moved very smoothly. However, in the eleventh hour, there was a huge issue (which had nothing to do with Tregg). At this point, Tregg went from great agent to an amazing agent. This “issue” demanded endless phone calls, letters, inspections, meetings, etc. to get the sale of the home to close on time (or at all for that matter). Tregg made the sale happen and he made it happen on time! We live in the Southbay which is not even Tregg’s area of expertise (we originally planned on buying in West LA); nevertheless, we would never even think of using another agent when we sell our current home or buy our next home. In looking for homes for just about two years we met a lot of real estate agents. Many of them are totally unprofessional shady characters! Tregg is a breath of fresh air and truly fantastic at his job. And, he CARES about YOU and YOUR INTERESTS! Oh, by the way, he is a total closet contractor and interior decorator. Thus, if you want ideas about remodeling, furnishing, painting, etc. Tregg is your guy!
