When I first entered into a professional relationship with Realatrends I was indeed impressed with not only their very evident professional knowledge of real estate, but just as important to me, an attitude that showed sincerity. They went far beyond what one could normally expect from real estate agents. They are a credit to the real estate profession. I would recommend them without hesitating to anyone seeking real services.
Dr. E. Terry Irvine
I am writing to express my appreciation for all the help and guidance you have given me during the sale of my house. Knowing I could rely on your advice and experience, I was able to go through it without anxiety. On a more personal note, I want to express my heartfelt thanks for all that Realatrends has done to support the work of Friendship Shelter, giving homeless people a new start in life, for over 20 years.
I would encourage anyone buying or selling property in South Orange County to rely on Realatrends to handle the deal. They are undoubtedly the best, most professional realtors I have ever known. They have my utmost confidence.
Dr. Larry Snyder
Realatrends has been our agent for the sale of two homes and the purchase of two homes. We are very impressed with Realatrends’ ability to handle difficult transactions with complete professionalism. We wanted to purchase a home from a developer and we contacted Realatrends informing them of our desire. Fortunately, they were able to represent us to the developer. After moving in and meeting the neighbors we were happy to find that Realatrends had negotiated the best deal on the block, by far. We wouldn’t consider using any other real estate agency and highly recommend Realatrends to all of our friends and neighbors

Realatrends brings a high level of integrity, professionalism and personal grace to the business of real estate brokerage, a business that, in the hands of so many others, is beset by hyperbole and hucksterism. They have skillfully handled difficult situations encountered in several difficult transactions for me.
We left Laguna prior to selling our home so that our children ethical could start school on time. Realatrends handled each sales hurdle that was encountered with calm professionalism. The team at Realatrends knows Laguna and all the local problem solvers who will get the job done. They work hard, they’re ethical and they deliver results. No question, they got us the most money possible in the time frame allowed.
Realatrends possess a level of expertise and professionalism unequalled in the Orange County real estate brokerage community. Quality performance, skilled, experienced dedicated to the deal, professional.

Thank you for the extra effort in getting me through the Sunset project. Your continuing support and follow up has been invaluable. I can’t believe there is a finer, more responsive real estate firm available. My new Three Arch Bay property is perfect.
Clark, my wife and I are pleased to state that working with you when we helped our son Steve in the purchase of his home, was a very pleasant experience. Your courtesy and straight forward manner were much appreciated, and we wish you the best.
Realatrends – Professional, Congenial, Dedicated… Second to none! Our experience with Realatrends made what can be a traumatic experience, an enjoyable one. Simply the BEST!
Katie and Roberto Guerrero
Realatrends helped us so much with our purchase of real estate. Your expert advice saved us thousands of dollars both on the purchase price and closing costs. We are always comfortable referring our friends and acquaintances to your office because we know that they will receive the same professional treatment that we always have.

It has been a pleasure knowing that Sylvia and I can count on Realatrends for our real estate needs. For six years now we have been guided by your professional effectiveness in buying and selling beach properties.
We approached Clark Smith for our home purchase after observing the treatment their clients received. Clark treated everyone they contacted with sincerity and honesty. Realatrends is a 1st class operation and we highly recommend their services.
Rusty & Teresa Horton
I appreciate your thoroughness and professionalism and have enjoyed working with you during the purchase of two properties through you. I look forward to working with you again.
They are extremely knowledgeable and hard working real estate agents. We looked for several years, and with their help (and patience) found the perfect house for us. They helped us with financing contacts, contractors, and they continued to be in contact with us to see how we’re doing. We recommend them without reservation. They’re good and they care.
Steve and Susann Bauman
We hired Realatrends to sell our home. We were very pleased with the professional manner in which all aspects of the sale were handled. We again chose Realatrends to handle the purchase of our new home. They found just the perfect house that wasn’t even on the market. They negotiated an excellent price. We highly recommend Realatrends.
Bob Metcalf and Greg Wheeler
This was the third home we had sold over the last 17 years, each time we prayed we would find an agent that would work for US. We interviewed (each time) several agents and with Realatrends we found professional representation; frank, straight forward advice in setting our price, strong representation, excellent follow up, all calls answered very fast. Your entire staff was well appraised of our escrow development. The bottom line – you get results with Realatrends.
John and Sandra Macatee
They are genuine professionals who can work with the most problematic situations and resolve them in an amicable manner. You can trust their word in all areas of real estate as they are so knowledgeable. It’s a pleasure doing business with Realatrends.
I purchased a home in Monarch Beach from Realatrends. It was a pleasure working with them, I never felt pressured in any respect and they always did what they said they would and were always prompt. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
I was referred to Clark approximately ten years ago when we were looking to move to Three Arch Bay. It was four years later that we actually made the move, but they stuck with us and were always professional, knowledgeable, and honest in their approach to our needs. I consider them friends and respected colleagues (I am in commercial real estate), and would confidently recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
We have done business with Realatrends for the past ten years, We find that they follow through on all projects. They are straight forward and keep us updated on the status of our business dealings. We depend on this input.
Paula Henry & Darleen Miller
Realatrends had sold and located a new home for my brother-in-law who was very happy with your services. Since you’d done so well by him, we listed our property with you and sold it for what you suggested we ask – a fair price. It was a pleasure to work with you. Everyone in your office was so nice. Thanks again!
Truly a professional team. You receive double the work, effort and enthusiasm. Two experts instead of one! A winning duo.
The selection of an agent is the single most critical action you can take. In my view Realatrends has no equal. I manage an international sales organization and I have a high degree of respect for professional, sales ability, follow up and just plain intelligence. These people have professional negotiation skills par excellence.
Victoria and Nick Broxs
We would like to express our sincere thanks and deep appreciation for the way you both handled the sale of our Laguna property. Your overall professionalism, attention to details and communicative follow-through set new standards in an industry that has been plagued by inexperienced and incapable performers. We owe Kevin Shipman a great deal for recommending your company. Again, thank you for transforming a difficult challenge into an enjoyable opportunity.
