Susan and Robert Blatman - Testimonials

Lush photography, vivid property descriptions and superior internet presence made our Covenant Hills property come alive!

Top notch...I don't believe there is any team more knowledgeable or experienced with Ladera Ranch real estate than the Blatman Group! 

Kelly & John Drexel- Ladera Ranch, CA

Over the years we have bought and sold somewhere near 10 homes and 30 investment properties so I guess one might consider us to be fairly experienced with the typical real estate transaction- but I have to say that during the recent sale of our home in Ladera Ranch where we were represented by the Blatmans, we were wow'd beyond anything that we have ever experienced before.

Selling a home in the very challenging Southern California real estate market requires a Realtor to own a skill set that is weighted very heavily toward the agent having not just a granular understanding of the market conditions but also the ability to utilize a dynamic marketing program that employs multiple technologies to be able to reach potential buyers. But to actually close a sale in this market requires an agent to have the negotiating skills of an industrial titan.In my work life I interact with literally thousands of real estate professionals throughout the country and it is my observation that the Blatman Group has learned their profession very well. They provide a truly outstanding level of communication and service and did so with a passion and commitment that we found to be far beyond that of our past experiences.Bottom line is that we do not believe that we would have sold our Covenant Hills home in such a crazy market without them. It is with great enthusiasm we recommend them- Susan, Robert and their entire staff.

Kim & Al Miller - Ladera Ranch, CA

From the listing interview through our successful close of escrow, I felt Susan and Robert Blatman were the most professional, efficient, and effective Realtors that I had ever used.

Many, many thanks!!!

Swanna Blaue - Ladera Ranch, CA

The Blatman Group delivered marketing that was detailed and wonderful- from the sales brochure to our featured listing on Realtor.

com. Robert's photos were spectacular! He really knows how to use lighting, angle and perspective to emphasize the best features of our home and community. We have no doubt that Robert's images contributed greatly to our successful sale.

Kristine Lee & Jeff Gold - Ladera Ranch, CA

After having a terrible experience with a different Realtor several years ago selling a home in Ladera Ranch, we decided to try the Blatman Group for the sale of our home in Covenant Hills.

It was the best decision! Knowing everything there is to know about every aspect of the Ladera Ranch market and every stage of the home selling process, Robert and Susan made it a great experience. Robert was very professional and also took beautiful, professional photos of our house that highlighted all the best features. Susan was amazing from our first meeting, to the Open House, to the negotiation process and beyond. We priced our house well over what any other homes had sold at in our neighborhood because we had a gorgeous lot, etc. We were expecting to have to drop the price quite a bit. In the end, Susan worked her magic and we received close to our asking price and ended up being the high mark ($ per square foot) in all of Covenant Hills! She is a great negotiator and will get you at least 10% more than any other Ladera Ranch Realtor. She doesn't come across as desperate for the sale so she won't give your house away to a low Offer. She works the deal and gets you every penny! It was such an easy transaction with the Blatmans. Plus we feel good about the sale even these six months later. If you want a great experience and top dollar, use the Blatman Group to market and sell your home.
