Rachel Tavarez Realtor
I have had the pleasure of working with Sellers, Buyers and Investors since 2002. The rules of real estate are always changing. Whether you are Selling, Buying, Investing or behind in your mortgage payments, I would be glad to explain the new rules. As a Realtor, my responsibility is to provide information regarding market trends, inventory, financing and negotiate for my clients. I follow the market closely and am ready to inform my clients with up-to-the-minute information. My main objective is to be professional, courteous and have a smooth transaction by working closely with my clients while on "their" real estate journey. Referrals are always a sign of success. I believe referrals have to be earned -- that is my ultimate goal. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was a Vice Present and Compliance Officer at a Los Angeles based private investment management company representing high net-worth individuals. I also believe that helping others in need is very important. I am a volunteer for the Shelter's Right Hand, which serves as a non-profit auxiliary of the Women's and Children's Crisis Shelter, Inc. which provides emergency and support services to Victims of Domestic Violence and their children. Visit their website, sheltersrighthand.org for more information. Please contact me by phone, e-mail or text to discuss YOUR real estate solutions. I look forward to meeting you. Have a pleasant day.
What Clients Are Saying
"The service and personal attention I received from First Team Real Estate and Rachel Tavarez was simply exceptional. As a first time homebuyer, I was looking for an agent who would take the time to educate me in the process of buying my first home. Agent Rachel Tavarez went above and beyond making this process comfortable and enjoyable. I could not have asked for a more effective, efficient and knowledgeable agent. Rachel and First Team Real Estate worked hard to make my dream come true. I fully trusted "my team" in guiding me through a life-changing experience. I strongly recommend you choose "my team" to be a part of your team when the time is right for you."
"Hacienda Heights, CA Our Family, along with our Mother, determined that she was going to have to leave her home of 40 years and move into an assisted living facility. As a result, we needed a real estate agent to help us sell her house. One of our recommendations was Rachel Tavarez. My brother and I met with her and she put us at ease and showed us how the process works. She was very thorough and professional but at the same time I felt that she was someone that cared and it just wasn't "just business". In a short time we received offers. As the ups and downs of the process occurred she provided understanding, alternatives, daily communications and became part of the family, understanding the sale of this house was my Mom;s future. What Rachel Tavarez does is not for Rachel Tavarez but rather the people that she is working for. If I know someone that needs a knowledgeable, caring real estate agent, I will not hesitate to use Rachel Tavarez again or recommend her."
"It is with great gratitude that we write this referral letter for Rachel Tavarez. Rachel always made us feel as if we were her only clients. She promplty responded to every phone call or email that we sent to her and was on time for every appointment. She did eveything possible to make this a smooth process for us. Rachel did not hesitate to go the extra mile for us. She always kept our best interest at heart and went out of her way to accommodate us. This allowed us to stay calm and relaxed at a time that is potentially stressful. We could not be happier with our new home and neighborhood. We would confidently recommend Rachel as an exceptional, trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable real estate agent."

"This letter is to inform you of the wonderful job Rachel did in finding the perfect home for my fiance and I. This can be a stressful experience, but that was not the case because Rachel made it an easy and smooth process. Anytime we had questions or reassurance, Rachel was there to answer any questions we had or just have an ear to listen. My fiance and I have a busy work schedule, but that did not discourage Rachel. She was always willing to meet us at any time or place in order to get the job done. We cannot say enough about Rachel. She is great, professional, friendly and treats you with the utmost of care and consideration. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She was not only a great real estate agent, but she became a friend as well."

"Pico Rivera, CA I was the trustee of my Parents' estate, which included our Family home and I was interviewing for a capable and honest agent, when Rachel Tavarez appeared at the house in Pico Rivera full of energy and information on the current market. Rachel was very enthusiastic and positive. She cheerfully answered all of our questions and explained how the process went, from locating a qualified buyer to the close of escrow. I am very thankful to Rachel and her "First Team" for making this a positive experience for our Family, and I feel my Parents would be very pleased."
"It took us a while to come to an agreement that we needed to sell our home. We put nearly 30 years of hard work and energy into making our house a home. When the time came to sell we decided to go with a rival agent. We could not have made a worse choice. From the beginning our agent rushed us through the process and was very unprofessional and inconsiderate to our emotions involved with selling our home. She told us many lies along the way and failed to close the sale, first blaming various lenders and then finally blaming her buyer. She even went as far as to sign papers for us without our consent. In the end we were left with no sale, none of the money we were promised through escrow and extremely high levels of stress that led to numerous Dr's visits. After this horrible expierence we debated over what to do. Should we proceed with selling with another agent or go back to our home and try again next year. It was then that we called Rachel. We had entrusted her with the previous sale of my mother's home after she passed. Rachel was quick to respond and very sympathetic and understanding of our emotional state following the mess that our first agent left us in. Rachel went right to work taking new, professional pictures and providing a facelift to our listing. She was ready to work for us on day one. She took the time to explain and dissect every document that we would be signing. We had daily contact with Rachel either on the phone or through email. In some cases Rachel even made herself available in person to explain everything and anything that needed explaining. She kept us updated and involved which really helped to ease our nerves and make this emotional time easier to negotiate. Rachel handled herself with professionalism from the first day until we closed the sale and beyond. Once we entered into escrow Rachel diligently kept up with important dates and made sure to keep us informed. Once we closed it felt like the weight of the world was lifted off of our shoulders and we have Rachel and first team to thank. We would highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking to sell or buy and want that personal touch. Rachel is first class the whole way and a true professional. Michael & Dorothy Allarid"

We've known Rachel for about eight years and are quite familiar with her upstanding work ethic. When it came time to sell our current home and make the move to our "forever home", we definitely knew who to call to best represent our interests. After locating our desired home, Rachel immediately submitted an offer on our behalf. To our surprise, we had an accepted offer the next day! Dealing with unexpected events is a part of any real estate transaction. We had some challenges with our lender, the buyers' agent of our current home, and the logistics of closing on both properties, while keeping everyone happy. To be honest, we would have gone insane if we had to handle this on our own. During the entire process, Rachel assured us that everything would get addressed. She reached out to both escrow companies, the lender, and title. Basically, everyone who needed to be in the loop was contacted to make sure we were all on the same page. Throughout the transaction, Rachel never lost focus on putting her client first. We are now moved into our new home and excited to get settled. If a friend or family member asks for a Realtor who holds her clients interests' paramount, we would absolutely recommend Rachel!

"I listed my Mother's home with Rachel. She was caring, thoughtful, diligent and very energetic in representing the house and our family. Immediately she scheduled an open house, distributed flyers and before the first weekend had passed, she had an offer from a terrific family as well as she had back up offers. Whereas a former broker had not been successful for 6 months, Rachel was able to find the right buyer, procure a great price and help us transition our Mother's home into loving hands. Due to Rachel's excellent job in selling my Mother's home, I would use her services again. She is professional in every sense of the word."
"Rachel Tavarez was awesome! Rachel and her team were great with keeping us informed on where we were with the bidding and purchasing of our home which kept us at ease. I want to thank you Rachel for everything you did for us. I never thought we be able to afford a home but it was fate that put everything in just the right place at just the right time and my family and I are very grateful. Thank you and we hope we'll keep in touch. The Cantu Family "

"Being a loan officer licensed in 27 states across the US affords me the ability to work with a large range of agents. I recently helped a client get into a home in California and Rachel was the agent. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her, one of the most top notch and professional agents I've the chance to work with in my career doing Purchase Loans. Every client I pre-approve moving forward in her area of coverage in California I will recommend her to clients I'm working with. She is extremely on top of things, excellent in communication, and knows when to get tough when the situation dictates as such. If you are considering working with her as either a loan officer or a client looking to purchase a home I couldn't give a higher recommendation than Rachel. Thanks again!"

"The purpose of this letter is to let you know how much I appreciate all the hard work that Ms. Rachel Tavarez did in order to put me in my new home. I think I am a VERY picky buyer and wanted everything to be perfect. After viewing a few homes, Rachel knew exactly what type of home I was looking for and did not waste any of my time showing me homes which were not what I wanted. After finding my perfect home, which was a short sale, the property ended up in foreclosure. Rachel continued to fight and was able to get my offer accepted by the bank. Rachel was very professional and kept me in the loop the entire time. I cannot explain my appreciation for everything Rachel did because I know without her perserverance and hard work I would have not gotten my dream home. Although buying a home is always a stressful experience, Rachel was always calm and therefore kept me calm. I am VERY pleased with Rachel's services and would recommend her to anyone buying a home. She is truly amazing."
"We are writing to commend our real estate agent, Ms. Rachel Tavarez, on the outstanding and professional service that she provided to us during our recent real estate transactions. We completed three transactions all with the assistance of Ms. Tavarez. Rachel worked tirelessly and professionally to minimize any problems, working proactively to make sure that the sales went along smoothly. She kept us aware of how each sale was going forward, consulted us on every decision and gave her expert opinion on issues that were unfamiliar to us. We have found our dream home, and hope to never need to move again. But if we ever do, Rachel will be the first person we call. We recommend her highly."
John and Joyce
"We hired Rachel to sell our home in Downey and to help us move up to a better home. Rachel is a very intelligent and sincere person, she strives for her client. She makes her client feel safe. She is very prompt and courteous and does not pressure you into something you are not comfortable with. We had some problems along the way, but she was always with us to the end. If it was not for her, we would still be in our other house. I trusted her from the beginning and I knew she would not let us down. We love our new house and our new neighborhood. If I had the opportunity to recommend Rachel to every person on this earth, I would. You do not come across a sincere trustworthy person that often. She is NUMBER 1!"
Fausto and Maria
"Thank you for helping me with all of my real estate transactions. I have to say you were awesome. Your professionalism in handling the selling of my Brea property and finding the perfect rental property for the 1031 exchange was amazing. The fact that you listened to what my needs were and consistently with determination kept moving forward to meet my needs. If that was not enough, you made the 3rd real estate deal by helping my Son, Timmy, buy is very first home. I cannot tell you what a pleasure it was working with you. Thank you for carrying all the stress throughout all of this and helping me make the right decisions for my and my Family."
