When we met with Laura, Eileen, and George, we connected instantly. Not only did they help guide us in terms of what to do to enhance the property's value, but they also helped supply competent/reliable vendors to execute what needed to be done. They offered helpful suggestions that made a huge difference when listing. This was our first time listing a home, and they helped explain each step along the way. They took the time to ensure we understood the process and treated us like an extension of their family. We cannot thank them enough for their dedication and reliability. It made the whole process so much easier. We are so pleased with the outcome of the sale and couldn't be more thankful to The Moreno Group for helping us!
Her commitment, expertise, and unwavering support made the entire journey a great experience. She demonstrated a deep understanding of our preferences and tirelessly scoured the market to find properties that matched our needs. Her patience and dedication were truly remarkable, and never pressured us to settle for less than what we desired. Laura’s knowledge of the local housing market was invaluable, ensuring we made well-informed decisions and guided us through every step of the buying process, making it as seamless and stress-free as possible. Ultimately, her efforts paid off, and we found our perfect home. I cannot recommend Laura highly enough. Her dedication, professionalism, and genuine care for us make her an outstanding choice for anyone in search of a new home. Thank you for making our dream a reality.

As first time home-sellers, we had long been apprehensive about the process. We are busy with our careers and we were not looking forward to the stress, disruption, and all the unforeseeable pitfalls that often come with the process. While we had seen the Moreno Group signs around, it was after a strong personal recommendation that we contacted them. We are so glad we met Laura and her team. Laura made things as painless as possible and basically took over as a project manager. Trusting her, we followed her steps of appropriate renovations, tasteful staging (her stager Natasha was also great), and putting forward a smart pricing and marketing strategy. While there were certainly challenges we came across, Laura and her team helped us deal with them appropriately. Laura even went out of her way to help us with other real estate related issues unrelated to the property she was working on. As great as Laura is, she also has a great team behind her that played an important role like Alex Patch and Eileen. To me, having the least painful experience was the main priority, but on top of this, we sold for a price way higher than we ever imagined. Our price per sq ft is one of the highest I've ever seen. You cannot beat this experience.
Laura and the Moreno group are the place to go for any real estate needs in the area.

We want to thank you so much for the incredible job you did with the sale of our beloved home. As you know, we interviewed several top real estate teams, before we made that final decision as to whom we felt would do the best job for us. You certainly did not let us down.
It was very helpful to know that while we were traveling out of the country, that you and your team were handling all the details in getting the house ready to go on the market. It really felt like we had partners in the process of selling our home.
Given the number of homes you’ve sold, I’m sure often enough there are some curve balls that are thrown your way and I know the selling of our home had a couple of them. Unfortunately, one of the curve balls was the changing market conditions. From the time we started the process of getting ready to sell our house, real estate prices started spiraling downwards, but even with that the results you gave us were everything and more than we could have hoped for! We really appreciate how you talked us through everything that came up, gave us solid advice, and dealt with our anxieties along the way. We would not hesitate to refer or use you again ourselves (which might be sooner than later!)!

When we decided that we would soon sell our Highland Park condo, we turned to our most real estate savvy friend for a realtor recommendation. He insisted we partner with the Moreno Group and we are so grateful that he did! Laura, Eileen and George worked with us from the very beginning, when selling our home was still just an idea. Well over a year before we were ready to put our property on the market, they all came to our condo, advised us on updates and referred us to a great contractor. They guided us through the entire process in order to ensure we would get the best possible return on every penny we spent. Between the time we finished our updates and were ready to go to market, they kept in touch to advise us on timing and strategy. When it finally came time to list, they were right there to do final walk-throughs, advise on finishing touches, bring in the staging company and manage the entire process on the ground. We had already moved out of the city the month prior and we slept soundly knowing our home was in their hands. In the end, the Moreno Group’s thorough knowledge and expertise, along with the extensive amount of extra care and attention they give to their clients, culminated in us selling our home way faster than expected and for way, way above asking. We couldn’t have dreamed how well it would all go and we have the Moreno’s to thank for it. Laura, George and Eileen are wonderful, caring people and consummate professionals who are incredible to work with and extremely good at what they do. If you are selling real estate on the east side of Los Angeles and you are not partnered with the Moreno Group, then you are not maximizing your property’s potential; it’s really that simple. Trust me… call them today.
We highly recommend Laura to all prospective buyers. We were first-time buyers and recent transplants to the LA area, and Laura helped us every step of the way. She had invaluable insights and knowledge about the LA housing market and various neighborhoods all around the city, and she provided excellent advice on bidding strategy. We would not have been able to secure our dream house without her help. As busy professionals, we also appreciated Laura's responsiveness and hard work. Laura was always willing to answer our questions, and we never felt like we were on our own throughout the process. She is also a pleasure to work with - we would be very enthusiastic to work with Laura again in the future!
Tyler & Gabi S
When we decided that it was time to start the downscaling process and look for a smaller, more manageable, home.
From the first meeting George, Eileen, and Laura displayed the best aspects of a family business: strong individuals with specialized skills working together as a seamless unit. Between the three of them there was no challenge too great, and no problem that couldn’t be solved.
A lot of people in the real estate business put off a pretty pushy vibe: the hard sell gets in front of the process itself and what is natively a stressful situation in the end devolves into an overall lousy experience. Not so with the Morenos. I remember one day late in the game getting off the phone with Laura and realizing that we hadn’t had one really stressful moment during the sale. And this was after the house had fallen out two weeks into escrow and had to be re-listed. Even in that bleak moment the Morenos had kept cool and confident.
Long story short: the next and final deal they helmed closed several hundred thousand over the one that had gone south. It was the best possible outcome and, honestly, Eileen and Laura didn’t seem to break a sweat.
Thanks so much, Eileen, Laura, and George. The best endorsement? We’re going to work with you on our next sale, too.

Laura is THE BEST. She was our realtor® when we bought our first home, and then she sold it for us a few years later at a 30% profit. We're working with her now to find our next home and I can't imagine working with anyone else. On the buying side, Laura is incredibly thoughtful and thorough. With her immense knowledge of LA and seemingly endless rolodex, she is an expert at finding houses that fit your wishlist. And because she knows the city so well, she's great at finding new to you neighborhoods that check all the boxes. She is also incredibly patient, never pushy, and makes sure her clients don't get taken advantage of in a hot seller's market. When selling your home, Laura thinks of everything. She knows the LA buyer inside and out and she will work tirelessly to make sure your home is ready for market from the paint colors down to the candles and plants she brings herself to give the space some warmth and life. I find the LA real estate market to be incredibly stressful. Having Laura to guide us has been such a huge help and weight off our shoulders. I literally handed her the keys to our last home and never stepped foot in it again. She handled everything, at every hour, every day of the week. And when we were thrown curveball after curveball, she always had a solution in hand before we had even a second to panic. We feel so lucky that we found Laura and can't recommend her highly enough!
Thank you all so much for your tireless efforts in getting my (former) house prepped and sold. I’m still a bit stunned at how quickly and well it all went – a testament to your good judgment, deep knowledge of the market, and outstanding sales skills. My family and I are deeply grateful.
I wish I could give 10 stars -- that is what they truly deserve. They were the sellers' Realtors when we purchased our house in 2006 and they will definitely be our Realtors when we put the house on the market again. Over the years, they have been our frequent go-to source for solutions of any kind -- from estate planning, to home improvements and repair, even to attorney suggestions/recommendations -- the list is very long. They are extremely knowledgeable, full of resources, always ready to help and carry through until all issues are resolved in the best possible way. I cannot even begin to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for all that they have done and do. They are simply THE BEST!!!!
We have had the absolute pleasure of working with the Moreno's (Eileen, George and Laura) three times now (2 purchases and 1 sale). During our life time we have so far completed almost 20 real estate transactions across different Countries and States. The Moreno's stand out as the most professional and caring agents we have ever worked with. They go about their work as if it was their own home being either sold or bought. In addition; they are just really nice and genuine people. We strongly recommend the Moreno's if you're looking for the most professional, passionate and trustworthy partner to safely guide and support you through a real estate transaction.

Rochelle is an absolute gem! Working with her was amazing. Rochelle was attentive, kind, professional, & quick to respond to any questions or needs that my fiancee & I had. I would absolutely work with her again in the future.
I simply *could not* have imagined a better realtor to go through my first home-buying process with than Rochelle. I have already started recommending her to my friends and sincerely hope they choose her as their agent. Rochelle was always available to see homes with--or she made herself available. Even if we weren't able to see a home together, she would often see it another time and be informed to discuss it. (And we saw a lot of homes). She had the appropriate amount of input and was incredibly receptive when I described my needs in a house--balancing what I said I wanted with market knowledge. She helped me through the offer process and was so informative about what the process was, what I was signing, and what everything meant. She did all of this with an incredible and friendly attitude that always made me feel at ease. Other friends talked about how stressful the home-buying process was, I can say that Rochelle definitely made that not my experience. (All right, it was a little stressful, but *definitely* the easiest experience compared to everyone else I've talked to.). When it came for my offer to be accepted, she was there side-by-side. The selling agent and my mortgage broker both talked about how top-tier she was. Documents and appointments were sent out timely; Rochelle was always available for questions. In the end, I 100% feel like I was able to get my new condo over other buyers because of how much Rochelle fought for me, worked timely, communicated clearly--and also how personable and enjoyable she is to buyers and others. In the 2 months (only 2 months!) that we were looking for a house, I felt like I have almost made a friend. She worked *hard* in those two months and never made me feel like a burden--always as a colleague. I am so unbelievably happy in my new home and I know this would not have happened without Rochelle's hard work. I would definitely recommend using her; if I ever buy again or ever choose to sell, there is not a doubt that I would talk to her first. I'm very serious in saying using her as an agent made home-buying actually happen, and made the outcome perfect.
We worked with Laura a few years ago to buy our condo and had such a great experience that she was our first and only call when we were ready to list it. As first-time sellers, it was important for us to work with someone whom we trusted and could truly guide us through the process. Laura did all that and more. She made the entire experience of selling our condo easy and painless! We received multiple offers in an extremely short period of time - all above our expected price. We had the highest sales price in the history of our building. Her dedication to us as clients and knowledge of the market made her indispensable.

We worked with Jack to buy a Townhouse in Silverlake. We came across Jack at his listing property and decided to hire him after talking with him. He is very knowledgeable about how the transaction works, and very honest with his opinion and professional. He does not overwhelm you excessive talking (sorry, but I felt like many other agents do). The highlight of our Journey was that Jack was able to use his connection to find a private listing and we were able to purchase the townhome at much lower price prior to going out the the market. His negotiation skills were very effective and able to convince the Seller/agent to make the deal happen. Jack was very communicative, checked-in very occasionally, sent good listings to consider over our Journey. My wife and I can not thank Jack enough for finding our new home. I highly recommend Jack, if you are new with home buying experience. In my personal experience, I don't think you will find much better agent than Jack!
I used Jack Faulkner to sell my home in Los Angeles last summer and he was outstanding. I am a first time home seller. Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. Jack Faulkner stood out as one of the most desirable agents that Los Angeles (specifically the West Hollywood, Hollywood, Los Feliz and Silver Lake Areas) has to offer. What I like about Jack is his friendly, positive, “can-do” attitude. I met with Jack at my home, (after a previous agent was unable to sell it) and it sat on the market for months with no offers. He spent hours answering my questions, providing tons of info on comps in the area, how to get multiple offers and discussing his marketing strategy to completely rebrand the property. Jack made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't. He offered invaluable staging tips, did new professional photographs, and a lot more. When I saw our listing I was blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - my listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The second buyer that saw the property put in an offer. My home went under contract in two weeks after we put it on the market and after a bidding war which consisted of multiple offers. I accepted an offer well over the asking price and Jack walked me through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. I've recommended Jack Faulkner to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.
Laura is one in a million and we could not have asked for a better partner in purchasing a dream home in this insane Los Angeles market. We knew exactly what we were looking for, and Laura helped us navigate the entire process with knowledge, honesty, patience, and resilience. When our home finally came on the market, Laura knew instantly that it was the one! (so did we!) She worked tirelessly to ensure that it would become ours. We are proud owners of a gem of a home and we could not be more grateful for Laura's leadership and guidance. We give her the highest recommendation!
My spouse and I could not have hoped for a better agent and ally to help us find our first home in L.A., having recently moved to the city. She's very knowledgeable about the city, and very perceptive and understood quickly what we were looking for, and not looking for. We hardly saw any listings that did not match our taste and our needs. We could trust her to go see a place on our behalf and say yea or nay. Oh yes, that another thing: she goes above and beyond, and will go see a place for you, and do so at the last minute, if you cannot. She's also empathetic and understands how frustrating the process of buying a house can be. She's also well known on the market, and knows the other brokers, which may be helpful. She also helps you spot red flags and areas of concern. And she will hold your hand throughout the process, from the (multiple) visit (I mean multiple!) to your move. In other words, she will be on and by your side. Wow, I never thought I would ever say so many nice things about a broker.

I told Rochelle what I was looking for and the literal second place she showed me was my dream home. She went above and beyond to help close the deal for my family despite the competition.. We just got the keys and I can't believe it. She's got a sharp eye and she's willing to do the extra work to make the deal go through. So grateful--thanks Rochelle!
Over the past 19 years, I’ve bought two houses and sold one with George & Eileen, selling for more than 10 percent over asking price. They are efficient, informative, accommodating, great listeners, punctual and absolutely passionate about the business of residential real estate. Having them on your team provides a measure of comfort that makes what could be a stressful process easy and even fun.
I hired Jack to sell my home because I new he would bring the passion to get the job done. Not only did he bring the passion, he brought the vision, strategy and work ethic to make my home sale a great experience. Jack staged the home with my furniture and some strategic additions. He made sure the listing photos were perfect. After a few open houses and a few broker opens, we received 11 offers, counter backed 8 and received 5 offers in the best and final round. The house sold for $266,000 over asking price, beyond my highest expectation. On top of that, the process was extremely smooth, with 40 days from listing to close. I highly recommend Jack. The level of service was superb.
Rochelle was friendly and professional throughout the entire home-buying process. She was extremely quick to respond to inquiries and cared about making sure we could view many homes and find one that we liked! She specializes in the Los Feliz/Silver Lake area, but was able to show us homes all over Los Angeles (Culver City, Koreatown, Hollywood Hills, etc). She also helped keep us on track through financing and purchasing the home and kept in close contact with the buyers' agent to make sure everyone ended up with the best possible outcome. We ended up making an offer on a Franklin Village home and closing within a couple of months. I recommend Rochelle to buyers who are looking for a responsive, warm agent to help them find an ideal home.
My wife and I were so lucky to retain Jack as our agent because we were able to close the escrow in a highly satisfactory way. Due to some conditions of the property, we had to go through various sensitive and sophisticated negotiations with the seller, but Jack has been very creative and patient to resolve each and every problem along the way. He was always available by phone, text and email, and quickly responded to any questions we had at any time. Jack spent a lot of time and effort for us, patiently listened to our concerns, and gave us realistic but acceptable and practical solutions in order to close the deal in a timely manner. He was not only an excellent negotiator but also a highly knowledgeable agent who protected our interests. Because of his honesty and expertise, we felt very comfortable working with Jack throughout the entire process and are so happy that we were able to buy the house we love so much! Thank you very much, Jack!
Rochelle helped me find the best apartment to rent for what I needed. I am new to LA and very discouraged by my first rental. She helped on every step and got me into my dream rental. Hopefully I can save for my dream home. Strongly recommend
On behalf of my family and myself, please accept our most earnest thanks in connection with your efforts toward the recent sale of my mother’s home. Your consummate professionalism and savvy experience were instrumental in shepherding the process toward a successful conclusion. More important, however were the compassion, understanding and accommodations you extended throughout to my mother, as she grappled not only with the difficult reality of leaving her home of 45 years and adjusting to a new living environment, but the loss last year of her husband of over 60 years. For your undeniably sympathetic approach, my sisters and I will always be grateful. Much continued success and good fortune to you all.
I don’t usually write online reviews, because I don’t normally care that much, but this seemed like a good way to hopefully help out our neighborhood. When it came time to sell our home in Los Feliz/Silverlake, we started paying attention to the market to see which local brokers were working the hardest. Everywhere we looked, we saw George and Eileen’s signs, but when our neighbors across-the-street sold their home VERY quickly for WELL-over-asking price, we knew we had to give them a call. George and Eileen and Laura sat down with us at their office and explained very simply what they do best and how they would strategize to sell our house. We walked thru the house and they pointed out some spots that needed some fixing/love. They even suggested a painter/handyman they use a lot as well as one of their favorite designers, Daniella, to help us stage it. (BTW, stage your house, folks!) I gave them a list of upgrades we’d done and told them about recently landscaping the yard. The painter and Daniella got to work. Laura designed spectacular online-listings and glossy brochures for the Open House. When it came time to discuss the listing price for the house, George and Eileen suggested a number we thought was too low. My wife and I had a much higher price we wanted. They explained that we may get a higher price, but the most important thing is to get people in the door. And hopefully those folks start bidding against each other, driving the price up. Best. Call. Ever. After one or two weekends, we had a handful of great offers, well-over-asking. We closed a few weeks later with zero problems. Obviously every house is different and the market varies year by year. But George and Eileen and Laura made the process smooth and manageable. They are total pros and we would use them again in a heartbeat.
George, Eileen & Laura helped sell our house in Los Feliz in a jiffy. All along, we were thinking of continuing to rent it out. We had reached out to George & Eileen knowing that we were only exploring selling the home. Until the very last day when we countersigned a bid on the house, we were leaning towards renting it out. However, the sheer hustle, reputation-driven market network and superb persuasion & negotiation skills of Eileen, George & Laura changed our minds and resulted in our home changing hands to a very good family. Imagine an empty home that was just a pocket listing fetch top dollar. Thats how good this team is. In effect, from initial conversation to a contract on hand it took less than 3 weeks, during which time we were getting the home ready for renting it out. This short turnaround is a tribute to the team pulling all stops to get a deal done. The kind of energy they had would give most millennials a lethargy complex. George, Eileen & Laura are the monarchs of Los Feliz & Silver Lake real estate. Period!!!
Thank you George & Eileen! First of all, for advising us to do some fix ups before putting our home on the market. We were a bit apprehensive, being 3000 miles away and not able to oversee the work being done. But you handled everything and we’re so glad we took your sage advice, as all of your recommendations paid off. I’m so appreciative of your guidance over the years, from helping us purchase the home back in ’08, the times you helped us lease it and especially now through the process of selling it. I’d happily refer you to anyone looking for a realtor.
We are getting the keys to our first home LESS THAN 2 WEEKS after putting in our offer! This would have been impossible without Jack's help. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he was always honest with his advice and recommendations. Jack is quick to respond and went above and beyond when we needed help with our mortgage brokers, inspections, escrow, etc. We 100% recommend Jack to anyone who wants to buy in LA, , and feel very lucky to have worked with him!
George and Eileen are by far the BEST team in the area. Eileen is so professional and she really understands what it takes to make a house sell quickly. She has an eye for interior design that helps with the preparation of taking a home to market. George is very helpful in the process as well by being a GREAT communicator on all levels. George and Eileen got us the dollar value that we knew our house was worth and it sold in the first week. If you want a team that will fight for you and give you honest and knowledgeable advice, then this is who you want. Thank you, George and Eileen!
Working with George and Eileen was a great experience. I was selling an older home in Los Feliz and I needed some guidance as to what needed to be fixed up or replaced in order to maximize my home’s curb appeal. George and Eileen were able to tell me exactly what needed to be done and more importantly put me in touch with a contractor who got those renovation jobs done quickly and did a great job. They also talked to me about staging and I was a bit skeptical at first but I decided to trust their expertise and I was sure glad I did. By staging the house, along with the renovations and having it marketed so professionally with great photos I was able to get multiple offers, all over asking just one day after the first open house. My house ended up selling faster and for more money than I could have ever dreamed. I can’t recommend George and Eileen highly enough. They did an amazing job.
Eileen Moreno is the best of the best. She worked with us for months, and saw us through an incredibly difficult shortsale process that involved multiple lenders and tax liens. In the end, she worked a miracle and we got an amazing house for significantly less than the list price. I’m still not sure how it happened, but I know that it only happened because of Eileen. If you’ve been house hunting in Los Angeles for any amount of time, you can appreciate how impossible finding any kind of deal is. The rest of Eileen’s team is also great. When Laura saw that we were worried about the lawn at the house dying before closing (but after the original owners had moved out), she watered the lawn herself! In short, Eileen is responsive, ethical, practical, and experienced. If we ever sell this house, she’s the first one we are calling.
Jack was exceptional! This was my first time buying a home in the USA. I moved here from Ireland 6 years ago, which was always going to make my case challenging, given the short credit history. Jack was able to help me increase my credit score connecting me with right companies to get an exceptional loan which was dependent on my type of work. Jack rapidly helped me secure the property of my dreams before it ever hit the market, which mean’t no bidding war and not having to overpay. In this extremely competitive LA market, it was a major win! Unfortunately out of Jacks control, there were delays with city building permits. Jack jumped hoops & leaps to keep me focused and informed of the whole process. He most importantly helped me hold my anxiety and make the situation work for me by maintaining close contact with my mortgage broker and the listing agent. Especially at a time where I thought I might have to break contract due to my unusual financial intricacies and building work delays. He actively solved every problem I presented him and went above and beyond to make it simple and workable. Throughout the whole process Jack was always available, supportive, attentive and diligent. Cant wait to buy with him again. Thanks Jack xx
Mona and I want to thank you for your extraordinary assistance in selling our beloved home of 27 years. As you know, it was a somewhat painful decision for us to sell it. However, you made the process so easy and in the end, when the outcome turned out to be so far beyond our expectations, it all became quite pleasurable. We are certain that no other agents in Los Feliz could have done nearly as fine a job as you did and we will always be indebted to you for your very kind help. If we ever have other real estate needs in the future, you are the only ones we will call and should someone we know need to be referred to the best real estate agents in Los Feliz, then it goes without saying that you are the only ones who fit that description. We look forward to staying in touch and send you our warmest best wishes for the holidays and the coming New Year.
Endre & Mona
Michelle and I wanted to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude for your unrelenting dedication to helping us secure our dream home and relieve ourselves of our previous one. As you know, we had spent almost three years pursuing our elusive next property, with a number of heartaches along the way. We met you by chance while perusing a home in Los Feliz and were immediately taken by your warmth and your friendly demeanors. We had been working with a number of agents who had promised the world but delivered very little and we were just getting ready to give up hope until we met you. You understood our brief immediately, and despite not having any formal commitment, you continued to send us only the best houses that met our criteria – with no pressure or pretense about the nature of the relationship. It was this very respectful, friendly and professional manner that made us decide to work with you to prepare our home for sale and entrust you to ﬁnd our new home exclusively. From the outset, you guided us through the process of preparing our home for sale, leaving no detail to chance. You gave us a realistic view of the market and where our home sat within it and provided detailed directions for preparing our home to maximize it’s potential – even providing much needed resources in terms of contractors and stagers. You’re view on pricing was spot on and your advice to price a little lower in the hopes of a bidding war paid oﬀ for all of us. When we were lucky enough to have a property we’d had our eye on for some time come within our reach, you oﬀered sound advice on the pros and cons of the purchase, playing devils advocate and balancing our obsession for a property that wasn’t without it’s challenges. When we managed to convince you that there was no other home for us, you fought day and night on our behalf, negotiating a deal that at ﬁrst seemed unattainable and securing the property for a price that we were extremely happy with. As we sit here in our new home, we couldn’t be more grateful for the service and friendship that you both have bestowed upon us. We are truly grateful for making our dreams a reality and for helping us to ﬁnd a home our family can enjoy for many many years to come.
Pete & Michelle W
Thank you so much for being terrific realtors, for guiding me (and Matt) through the process of finding a house (quite a journey!), making an offer, negotiating, and all the rest. You both went above and beyond our expectations and took such great care of us right down to the very end; with the sewer permit, which we never would have thought of! We truly felt that you looked out for us throughout the entire process and it meant a lot to know that you had our best interest in mind.
Jennifer G & Matt T
Relief, that is what I felt when we started working with the Morenos. We had a Silverlake house to sell–a beautiful home, but on a challenging street–and we were looking to buy in Los Feliz. We needed our Silverlake home to sell quickly, and we needed advice on what to do to the house in order to maximize its appeal. George and Eileen spent an entire afternoon with us, explaining where the housing market stood, how they planned to market our home, and what we needed to do to it going forward. Their eye for detail, and for what needed freshening and fixing was unerring. They recommended a reliable and speedy contractor whose crew did a terrific job, and at a reasonable cost. Our house looked gorgeous. Once the offers on our house started coming in–and we had something like eight offers in four days–we understood just how savvy their marketing strategy had been. We also came to realize just how important it is having experienced realtors handling the sale of your house. Multiple offers are, of course, what every seller craves, but figuring out which offer really is the best can be tricky. George and Eileen have the sorts of connections and the experience that enables them to give sound advice. And throughout, they maintain an almost Zen-like calm, which ratchets down one’s own anxiety considerably. In the end, our home sold for $35,000 more than its asking price, and to a solid buyer. But here’s the thing, if the Morenos were simply super agents, I would not be writing this letter. They are terrific people. It’s not just that they have integrity, or that they look out for your interests, although they do. It’s that they are curious about the larger world, open to other points of view, able conversationalists, and fun. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I first met you many years ago when you were selling my neighbor’s home across the street. The aroma of fresh baked chocolate cookies coming from that house brought me through the door. Based on the incredibly good feeling I experienced when speaking to both of you and the sincere answers to my many questions, I made the decision to call you when it was time for me to move on to my next chapter. Late last year, my perceived optimistic view of life was tested with the decision to sell my home of over twenty years. I had no idea how many difficult decisions and emotional turns this adventure had in store for me. Fortunately, I made the correct choice in choosing you to guide and ‘cheerlead’ me through the process. Your immediate responsiveness and compassionate natures not only created trust, but, also brought an unexpected element of fun. I had some ‘thinning out’ to do (I can only smile now, Eileen) and thank you for your gentle recommendations to help me give my home the look needed to sell for top dollar. Your insightful suggestions for the right people to help me with painting, a bit of staging and other additional things I needed for the house only added to the successful outcome. I appreciate every step you took with me in selling my home and all of your combined dedicated efforts in making this an experience I can fondly look back on. I will highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying in the Los Feliz Area.
I have lived in the area for many years and over that time whenever I was curious about the market generally or specific houses for sale I would go to George and Eileen’s website as they always seemed to have the best properties in the area (or they did a great job of making them seem so!) Over time I also noticed that their listings not only looked great but also seemed to sell quickly and I decided that when it was time for me to sell, they would be who I called. Well, the time came and I was not disappointed. George and Eileen were great in every way, strategic, knowledgeable and personable. Selling can be stressful, but they really helped keep the process smooth and efficient.…And the result for me, several offers on the first day offers were accepted and selling for well over asking and with a matching back-up offer just in case. I would (and have) enthusiastically recommended George and Eileen to anyone buying or selling a home!
What a year it has been! We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to find our new home with you. You made the process fun, hopeful, in spite of this crazy market, and enjoyable every step of the way. We can't wait to host you at our new place one we move in. Honestly, I'm not sad the house hunt is over, but I will miss our time together - thank you for being so wonderful! We appreciate all the amazing advice, experience, and badass negotiation skills that you brought to bear to win us this house and bring it to close. We will be forever grateful to you for getting us our first home - and what a magical one it is!

Laura helped us find a property recently and she was great every step of the way. She always responded instantly to all our questions, and helped hold our hands during the confusing parts. Our situation was very complex and demanding and she helped accommodate everything we threw at her. Definitely recommend!
A godsend to have found Laura. She is the hidden gem in the los sea of realtors. Ms. Moreno helped find me a once in a lifetime home in PRIME Los Feliz and masterfully closed the deal. She helped me learn a lot and continues to assist even after the sale. Laura is a closer and always has your best interest at heart. After dealing with many greedy realtors, I'm blessed to have found Laura. Please do yourself a favor and talk to Laura about buying your next dream home.
George and Eileen Moreno do a lot of business in Los Feliz for a reason. They got our house sold quickly and efficiently, with 5 offers over the asking price, and it was only on the market for like a week. They brought in/ recommended all the contractors we needed to get the house ready for market on a fixed budget. It's the third time in 20 years that they've sold this same house. We would *absolutely* work with them again.
Laura, Eileen, and George were incredible partners in our home selling process. There were so many tangible and intangible aspects of what they offered in our experience; here are a few: Experience: there are many, many resources online that may guide your thinking. That said, nothing can replace the incredible experience that the Moreno team offers in buying and selling homes. Most importantly, the team uses helpful anecdotes that informed our thinking too. Team: Laura, Eileen, and George truly operate as a team. There are an incredible number of items to take care of during the process and we recognized we were not the Morenos only clients. That said, they each followed up with us when necessary. When we had questions, we were able to contact either of them. They were always responsive to our needs and incredibly in-sync (avoiding repeating the situation over and over again). It was comforting knowing an entire team supported us. Partnership: The Moreno team adjusts to their clients needs. If we wanted to be hands-off, they were willing to be more than hands-on. We wanted to be involved in all steps of the process and the Morenos created a truly collaborative process. They offered insights that informed our decisions, but ultimately allowed us to make the final call through each stage. This level of comfort made the entire process easier. We are incredibly appreciative of the support Laura, Eileen, and George offered us through our time together. When we look for our next home, we'll be sure to work with them once again.
We used the Moreno Group to sell our Los Feliz townhouse in early 2019. Having grown up in the area I had seen their signs scattered around town for years, but had never met George or Eileen. As the time approached for us to consider listing our place, I decided to drop into an open house to see if they would actually be there, ask questions, etc. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that George was there (not some assistant), and he was very friendly and eager to answer any questions. First impressions like that are crucial. Once we decided to list with them it was clear that they were 100% committed to getting us the best price possible. It was a somewhat stressful situation (we were building a new house that wasn't quite ready and needed a leaseback), and Eileen, Laura, and George did everything they could to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. Eileen is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, and will do everything in her power to do the best for her clients. She provided constant updates, suggestions, and communication was all extremely effective. I was impressed with her negotiation skills (she is tactful but firm), and was able to get us everything we needed in order to make the process as smooth as it could be. It honestly felt like she was just as invested in protecting our best interests as we were. The property ended up selling for over 100k over ask with multiple offers. They did an excellent job marketing and tapping into their personal networks to get us the best price possible. I would have zero reservations recommending them to friends and family in the area. In fact, I trusted them enough to later help my dad purchase a new place in Pasadena. Words cannot describe how happy we are with their service, dedication, and experience. They will get you the best price and you won't regret it!
We knew from the outset that we would select The Moreno Team to sell our family owned quadraplex in Los Feliz. We met them years ago at an open house in the neighborhood and immediately knew they were the professionals we would use in Los Feliz. It took us several false starts over a few years to finally let the building go. I say this, because each time we THOUGHT we were ready to sell, they were there for us, and with patience and no pressure, let us make our decision to finally sell. When we did, they met with the 8 of us to outline their very thoughtful approach and within weeks (and guidance from the amazing Laura) helped us ready our four units for sale and it was on the market. It sold for WAY over asking in the first week. They worked with us to schedule times that were convenient for everything from inspectors to photographers to showings, no easy feat since we had renters to consider. They were very understanding and considerate to our guests, visiting nurses, with round the clock schedules. It was tricky! One of the three of them ALWAYS responded, and quickly, to our many calls and questions and concerns. We were not the easiest clients (we had strong emotional ties to the building) with 8 differing opinions, but they maintained steady and calm assurances and understanding throughout. And then when all of the mountains of paperwork and legalities that are part of selling began, again, they guided us through it and answered all our questions. There were problems with the buyer (nothing insurmountable) getting the loan the way he first wanted, but the Team had built in protections for us all along the way and kept everything on track to the end goal. Again, no easy feat, as we had rental units to contend with, and rent backs, etc. We could not have done it without their experience and wisdom and determination to make it work for us. They are NOT the new kids on the block. They are tried and true and know and love Los Feliz. Don't even hesitate. Just hire them.

Dunia is everything a great real estate agent should be but often isn’t. Her patience, integrity, attention to detail, and friendly nature are a rare find. She made the process of buying our home from house hunting to closing the smoothest imaginable. Her strategic skills came into play to protect our interests and navigated every step flawlessly. She was with us every step of the way, orchestrating every detail and going well above and beyond what anyone else would do. She is the go-to agent for friends, family, and anyone who wants to work with the best.
Eileen, George and Laura were OUTSTANDING! I couldn't have asked for a better Team! They knew what todo and how todo it! They handled everything extremely fast and in a very Professional manner. I didn't know what to expect on selling my house and somehow they got me way over asking price! I would recommend them over and over and over again. Use them and I promise you wont regret it!
George and Eileen Moreno Group is SUPER! We met them in one of their open houses in 2017. We were very impressed with their professionalism and their team work. Therefore, when it was time for us to put our house on the market, we had no hesitation picking George and Eileen Moreno Group. Once they became our broker, their involvement in small details (placement of plants) and major decisions (such as painting and staging the house) really impressed us. We feel that all the details played a key role in selling the house. By chance, our house was on the market during the beginning of COVID-19 shelter-in-place time. We were very concerned to be placing our house on the market during this challenging time. Without having a single open house, George and Eileen Moreno Group managed to sell above the listing price. We are very pleased with their professionalism and they were very pleasant to work with. We definitely recommend them without hesitation.
George and Eileen are amazing to work with and I can wholeheartedly recommend them! George and Eileen helped me when I decided to rent out my Silver Lake home two years due to my relocation out of state. They helped find a fantastic tenant and brought me several excellent options. When I decided to sell two years later George and Eileen once again came through for me, helping me get multiple offers over asking in the middle of the pandemic! They are resourceful, knowledgeable, great communicators and a dream to work with. Thank you George and Eileen!
Laura Moreno is an angel sent from above!! In the beginning of our search, we thought we'd buy a house without an agent. Boy, would that have been an awful idea. Laura consistently provided great insight and helped us through more than a few situations where we fell for a house only to learn it had insurmountable problems. She steered us away from making rookie mistakes. She was open and supportive, never stopped working for us, and truly went above and beyond. She understood what we were looking for and sent us the exact listings we'd want to see. When we went into escrow, she immediately had fantastic inspectors out and had our backs on every level. I can't say enough great things about Laura, we adore her and are so glad she represented us in buying our first home! She's an absolute asset in this complicated process, a gem of a person, and a A+++ realtor.
Laura S & Ryan D
Laura made our experience of buying a very smooth ride -- she takes care of so many details, digs deep for information, and gives you her honest (and informed) opinion of options. She's punctual, pleasant, and patient. We give her our highest recommendation!
Dunia was the perfect fit for us as first-time home buyers. She was great at communication and always calm and reassuring and never pressured us. Even when we would ask her straight up, "How much should our offer be?" or "Should we go for this one?" she would never tell us what to do. As soon as we had that classic "OMG this is the one!" experience, however, Dunia turned into a warrior and pulled out all the stops to get us our house. We are so grateful that she was on our team!
Laura helped us find our dream home in Atwater Village and we feel so lucky to have her represent us during this process. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to all our needs while helping us navigate the very competitive LA market. We will definitely be working with her on our next purchase.
I could not have been happier with our decision to work with George, Eileen, and Laura Moreno! They went above and beyond – from start to finish – in helping us prepare, list and sell our house. Eileen worked tirelessly to help us remodel our house, helping us find ways to maximize the impact, while sticking to our budget (some examples: she drove me to a plant nursery in North Hollywood to save lots of money on landscaping costs, helped me find the best value and pricing on fixtures and appliances, set me up with her vetted painter, stager, flooring guy, etc). I have never remodeled anything and was apprehensive about the process but Eileen and Laura made it so easy, and I can go on and on about how hands-on and proactive they were! Even when the unexpected happened (we found original hardwood floors under our laminate flooring late during the process), Eileen helped me roll with all the changes, adjust the scope of the project and timeline, and the house looked amazing when we were done, and on budget! Laura helped us maintain the house after we were no longer living there, watering the plants multiple times a week and looking after the home. We loved their philosophy on pricing the house and their marketing strategy, and trusted their experience in selling. Because the house looked so good and was priced well, we had so many offers, and the house sold higher than I could have hoped for. Even now, after the house is sold and escrow closed, they are still helping me find agents and lender referrals in my new area to help me purchase my next house. I didn’t have a direct referral when I first reached out to them, but after meeting with them, I knew that they were the right ones – and I would recommend them to anyone!!
We saw the Moreno's at open houses in Los Feliz for many years and thought they were knowledgeable about the area and someone we could work with to get our home sold. George and Eileen were professional and responsive. George (the early bird) and Eileen (not so much) gave us great advice every step of the way. The people they recommended performed quickly and efficiently. Our home sold in one week with 13 over-asking offers! Needless to say, we were thrilled that the process went so smoothly and in the end we made a lot of money and two new friends. Who could ask for more?
Eileen and George Moreno were a joy to work with in the selling of my Mom's home after she passed away. They listen and gave an honest approach to handling all aspects of selling a home. From start to finish, the Moreno's handled everything beyond my expectations. Phonecalls, e-mails, inquires, are all handled with efficiency. I highly recommend them for all your real estate needs. You will not be disapointed. Thank you Eileen and George for making this experience so smooth.
George & Eileen are the best! From the initial consultation, they provided expert advice on the optimum time to sell our home and how to stage for the biggest impact. Thanks to their guidance, our home sold in record time and for over our asking price with multiple bids. What more could a seller want? If you get the chance, list with George & Eileen...you won't be disappointed!
Having just had our second child and the news that we were moving for a job half way across the country right after the holidays, my family and I were a bit stressed. George and Eileen stepped in and literally took care of everything with such a high level of integrity and honesty. From the moment we met to discuss their marketing strategy, to setting expectations of timing to completing the sale, they were spot on every step of the way. It was hands down the best experience we have ever had when selling a home. They completely exceeded our expectations and we can't be thankful enough...that and they sold our house for an amount that well exceeded asking price.
We were so lucky to find Eileen and George when selling our home in Silverlake. They're fantastic agents. They helped us figure out the value of our home, they helped us "stage" the house for sale, and counseled us on all the best ways to show it. Their marketing strategy, their pictures of the house, their professionalism and personal warmth in showing the home were great, and made selling the house easy and (relatively) painless. They worked hard to get us the best possible price, and they were always prompt and friendly in getting us through all the paperwork. George and Eileen are wonderful in every way. We've recommended them to all our friends.
George and Eileen Moreno are the most experienced and reliable realtors out there. I would never consider buying or selling a home without their expertise. In fact, I have often turned to George and Eileen for advice on home buying, selling, timing, neighborhoods, and even decorating. George and Eileen walk you through the entire process from selling your home to buying a new one, and anyone would be in good hands with this professional team.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Laura to purchase our first home! We actually met her months prior, when we were causally beginning our hunt and happened upon one of her open houses. Her positive attitude and transparent nature stuck with us, and we contacted her when we were ready to buy. She was awesome throughout the whole process - advising, educating and helping us will all aspects of our search. I would recommend Laura to anyone.
Thank you for the great job you did selling my home at 1923 Mayview Drive! As you know, our home had been listed with another real estate company for 120 days and did not sell. When we met you, we were beginning to believe that our house would never sell. You showed us your marketing program and discussed your experience selling homes in our neighborhood and we decided to list with you. You listed and sold our home in 10 days for a higher price than we had it previously listed for. You gave us great advice on preparing the house to make it look its best and your marketing techniques produces a flurry of showings, which resulted in us receiving multiple offers. Your excellent negotiating on our behalf and expert management of the escrow were so very much appreciated by me and my wife. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell a home in Los Feliz. Thanks again for all that you did for us.

When my husband and I decided to sell our house, we had mixed feelings. We were excited because its a second big step we are making (the first step was buying our first house). At the same time we are feeling anxious because we don't know what to do or who to turn to to ask for help. As soon as we met George and Eileen we felt completely relaxed. They are very professional and take their job very seriously. They had with them all of the necessary documents and went through them each with us, explaining all the different steps form A to Z. From the open house to the close of escrow, they never left us in the dark. They kept us informed every step of the way, guiding us and helping us make the right decision in order to sell our house fast. Now escrow is closed, and the check is in the account. Thank you George, Thank you Eileen, YOU ARE THE BEST!
Andrew & Cecile
You did a wonderful job helping us price the house and prepare it for sale. We most appreciated your commitment to getting the house sold from the moment we met you until the sale closed, including your wise advice along the way. We also appreciate that you were proactive in staying in touch with us, you always returned our calls promptly, and each of you stayed involved, each playing different but critical roles in getting the house sold. It made for a very smooth experience. Thanks again for the great job, and your friendship.
Susan & Jon S
Not only were George and Eileen very pleasant to work with, I found them to be really nice people. They are truly dedicated and enjoy what they do and I found them to be the best brokers that I have ever worked with in my thirty-four years of investing in real estate. Their team works together beautifully. In the beginning, they made me realize what I could afford to do, which surprised me, as they have knowledge of many different ways of financing. Our deal was extremely complicated and difficult to pull off because it involved three different purchases and sales. In the end I was very satisfied with how it all came out and I think everybody else was too. Their secret is their approach to marketing and research along with their awareness of realistic pricing in regards to what is currently going on in the market. I am highly recommending them to all of my friends and I would to anybody who is interested in buying or selling property. I will surely go to them for any future deals I may pursue.
We would like to thank you so much for the way in which you efficiently and effectively represented us in the sale of our home this fall. We met with a number of realtors. From the beginning, we were impressed with the thorough understanding you showed of the Los Feliz market, and your realistic advice. You not only helped us set a sales price we felt good about, but you also helped us see a number of improvements we could make to better showcase the house. Clearly, your advice paid off. Our friends and associates are always astonished to hear that we received an offer above asking price within a day of listing the house. We know that some of it was luck of attracting a couple who fell in love as quickly with the house as we had done twelve years earlier. But we also know it was your efforts in marketing that led that couple to our home; your counsel that ensured the house showed well; and your advice that priced the house appropriately to drive their initial interest. Again, we appreciate all of your work and advice in representing us.

I wanted to write and thank you for all of your assistance and professionalism in connection with the sale of our home. We were so pleased that the entire transaction from listing to close of escrow took less than two months! But while the speed of transaction may have involved some degree of "luck", it was the preparation and follow-through which you both demonstrated which made the transaction a comparative pleasure. From our initial meeting at which you presented your professional evaluation, through the difficult "back and forth" of negotiation of terms with our buyer, your talents were invaluable. I never mentioned to you that we have watched your efforts in the Los Feliz area in the nearly 20 years while we lived here. Tom and I have discussed many times during that period that we thought you appeared to be the most effective local realtors. When the time came to sell you were our first call, and we thank you for living up to our expectations!
Thank you for understanding the special qualities of my home and neighborhood, and obtaining multiple offers from qualified buyers who did also! As a first-time seller I especially appreciated your professionalism and years of local experience - I knew any bumps in the road would be handled with competence and integrity. You both did a great job keeping me and my transaction on track. I would recommend George and Eileen to any one seeking to buy or sell a home in Los Angeles.
Laura is a miracle worker - she helped us win a bidding war for our dream home at a great price in the midst of this crazy market! I firmly believe that laura is the best agent in her market and getting to work with her was a joy. She works with her family and between all of them they have decades of experience selling or buying most of the house worth having in the Los Feliz/Silverlake/Canyon/Handcock neighborhoods. Because of this she knows all of the agents in the area well, which she leveraged to get us inside information to submit the most competitive bids we were comfortable submitting. Our home search took almost a year since we were so specific on the type of home we wanted and the location. Laura was amazing and patient every step of the way! She found us off market listings and came with us on every tour (50+ tours). She told us to walk away from many places that she thought were either not for us, we’d never get our money out of because they were so overvalued, or because they needed serious fixes. She was right every time. Most agents just want commission so it’s rare to find someone who will invest their time with you to find exactly the right home for you. The seller’s agents told us that the only reason we got the house was because Laura was such a amazing agent and negotiator. She helped us win in the bidding war and had a whole roster of excellent inspectors and specialist that she was able to schedule within our short inspection window. When costly repairs were uncovered by those inspections (she attended all of them), she was able to negotiate a substantial sellers credit for us to pay for the fixes despite them having a solid back-up offer. When we closed on the house she welcomed us to our new home with balloons and champagne. We couldn’t be more grateful to Laura for helping us buy our dream home!! She is also an excellent sellers agent and we will work with her whenever we decide to sell ours.
Thank you so much for the terrific job you did selling our home at 1900 Monon St. so quickly! Your pricing recommendation, your expert advice, and your superb multi-faceted marketing paid off with a ton of showings and a rapid closing at the sale price we were asking in just three weeks - quite a feat in this tough jumpy market. Then during escrow, you and your wonderful assistant kept tabs on every detail to make sure things moved along quickly and nothing fell through the cracks. On top of all that, you are fun to work with! Our neighbors have commented on how quickly our place sold even though other homes for sale in the area have been languishing. We reply that it's because George and Eileen Moreno represented us - we're convinced that you are the best realtors in town.
Claudia & Dan P
The fact that my house was SOLD IN THE FIRST WEEK in this very difficult market is a testament to your skills and knowledge. I did not interview agents, but instead posed as a disinterested "window shopper" at various open houses. You were both warm, open, and informative with prospective buyers. This was important to me as someone who is repelled by slick and pushy sales people. Probably the greatest help to me was your comprehensive presentation (with great photos) of other houses sold, for sale, and in escrow. Knowing their starting prices and time on the market helped us to set a fair price. Then you were able to sell my house quickly and above asking price which is exceptional! Again, thank you for your help in so many ways.
We recently sold our Los Feliz home with Eileen, Laura, and George and I could not be more pleased with the outcome! Our home sold at over $600,000 over asking and we accepted an offer in under two weeks on the market! We are elated. The Moreno team really really knows what they are doing. We absolutely loved our house, it was our dream house, but we needed to move for a job, so we had to sell. As soon as we called them Eileen and Laura came by to visit, giving us very specific advice on how to spruce the place up for the market. Laura was so helpful with picking out the perfect accents for staging and showing the place--from advice on paint colors to selecting fresh flowers for the open house. They even went out and bought plants themselves and brought them to the house for us. This was a level of service that we did not expect but were very pleased with. Based on their amazing track record in the area, we completely trusted them and did everything they suggested. They know exactly what they are doing! After holding a broker's open house and a public open house we had several offers in hand. In addition to knowing how to make a house look great for the market, the Morenos are also expert negotiators--which is a critical part of selling a home. They were able to negotiate with all of our potential buyers to get us the best package possible. They are also excellent communicators, calling and texting with updates as needed, but not calling too much either. We were elated to sell our house quickly and way over the asking price, all thanks to the expertise of Eileen, Laura, and George. This team has the magic touch, I highly recommend them to anyone selling in the area or anywhere in Los Angeles!
