"Working with Jake was great! He is professional, friendly, hardworking, knowledgeable and fun. He stayed positive and kept a sense of humor even when we had to look at houses in POURING rain! He was dedicated to finding the right house for us to buy. We were impressed with how available he was, since our schedule is crazy. We spent many days looking at a lot of houses, and Jake always met us with a smile. He guided us away from houses that would not work for us and suggested some that we hadn’t thought we’d like. In fact, our new, cute, little house wasn’t even on our list, but Jake just “knew” we’d love it—and we are so happy!!! We LOVE our new home!

I am sure that Jake must have done many tasks and a lot of background work that we didn’t know about to help the process go smoothly. He put us in contact with a local loan agent who was fabulous and a local title company who worked with us to make our escrow timeline work for us. We are grateful that Jake became a friend—and that we still get to see him!"

Lifetime BEST agent we have found. Bay Area professionalism in a friendly, astute agent who knows the idiosyncrasies of Butte County neighborhoods and won't steer you wrong. She imparts enthusiasm to the real estate process, and is highly ethical and dedicated to the success of her clients. She is very knowledgeable about the many facets of real estate, and really goes the extra mile. Other agents say they'll get back to you; Lauralyn actually does! We highly recommend Ms. Lambert without reservation, and hope to always be so fortunate to have her services in future real estate ventures.


Alyssa was our third try at a realtor and she made the process of purchasing our home so much easier. She is honest, reliable and motivated. She would quickly tell us whether a home was worth our time to view based on our individual case and had other options for us to take a look at without having to ask, which was appreciated. It was such a relief to find her, she answered quickly and would always stay in touch throughout the process via phone and text. We highly recommend Alyssa, our first-time home buyers experience was seamless with her help.

Lois had been my realtor of choice with the sale of over a dozen properties in the Bay Area. I have especially valued her people skills in handling all kinds of situations, whether dealing with other realtors as well as buyers needing an extra degree of reassurance during the sale. Her daily communications helped me understand exactly what was going on with my listings, avoiding any confusion or anxiety. Her warmth and friendly style along with years of knowledge and experience make her outstanding!


Lauralyn Lambert was a lifesaver!

I had to clear and sell the home of my deceased mother and her partner while I was undergoing chemo. I'd never sold a home before, and I felt exhausted and overwhelmed before I'd even started. But Lauralyn guided me through the whole process and made everything go as smoothly as possible. When I reached out to her on 2/1/22, the home was in a state of chaos. But we listed it on 2/28, and even in a sluggish time of year, it sold in a month. Lauralyn came highly recommended by two other homeowners in the Kelly Ridge area. She is plugged into an extensive network of workers who do everything from laying foundations to strapping water heaters to repairing decks to cleaning to hauling debris—you name it, she knows someone who does it. And she takes the time to check people, so you can trust the quality, efficiency, and safety of anyone she recommends. If you're looking for an agent with experience, market savvy, integrity, community connections, and heart, then I highly recommend Lauralyn Lambert.

Shelley was absolutely a blessing to me when I had to sell my fathers home. Shelly went above and beyond to get the home listed at the correct price to sell and then did all of the work of getting it ready to sell as I was not in the area. She took care of a few clutches that arose with efficiency and calm. Shelly is there to work for you and truly cares. Wish there were more realtors like her!



Leila Alvarado - Dream Team Agent

I highly recommend Leila as an agent if you're on the lookout for a custom home that feels specific to your needs. I entered the home buying experience for the first time feeling overwhelmed and confused. Having someone like Leila to represent you helped ease the worries the most overthinkers can have. In all honesty, I feel lucky to have had help from a seasoned agent like Leila, if it wasn't for her, I guarantee I would Not have gotten my bid accepted, and loan granted. Thank you Leila for changing my and my family's life, and hope you continue to spread your magic to others who have concerns over finding that perfect fit for them.

Lauralyn guided us through the sale of our old home and then the purchase of our new home with professional efficiency. When our pre-approved loan fell through she was researching our options immediately and within a short time we received approval from another lender! Whenever we had questions concerning our real estate transactions Lauralyn was quick to respond and clarify our concerns. We highly recommend her for her real estate expertise!   02/28/2014 - love l Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Oroville, CA.

Call Lauralyn the rainmaker. She has a knack of finding us the right properties at the right times. She is fast on her feet and really smart, we have put deals together in 2-3 days on occasion. She is professional, positive, upbeat and knowledgable. Her attention to detail is flawless. I have recommended her to several friends and partners who had, frankly,challenging situations with commercial and residential properties. She found them buyers at prices the sellers were very happy with. My recommendation of her is without reservation.09/05/2014 -dmonson57 Sold a home in 2013.


I met Lois Johnson by chance in 1986. I had just moved from Texas and was driving around looking at different areas to live and saw a for sale sign in Montclair and called the name on the sign and it was Lois. I have since bought and sold 8 times over the years and have always used Lois. Although buying and selling houses should be a business transaction it’s really a very personal and stressful time especially for me once when I had two offers on my house and a 6. earthquake hits and both fell through that's when you need someone like Lois who is very calming to take the reins. She is very knowledgeable and will do anything to help you through a very stressful time including and not limited to driving down to Monterey multiple times to get paperwork signed… thanks to docusign that’s not needed anymore. If you want someone to guide you through buying or selling with years of experience also with sensitivity Lois would be the realtor for you.


Lauralyn was very professional and knowledgeable. She took care of all the details and kept me constantly informed. For these reasons, I will continue to use her as my agent. DCSEY  Showed home in Butte, CA


Randy Chapman was awesome in helping my family find a home to buy.  We had a difficult seller, so Randy went out of his way to get things done.

Lois did a fantastic job as our realtor selling my 97 year old father-in-law’s home on Kelly Ridge.  From the start she was very sensitive to his desires and kept my wife and I, who live in southern California, in close communication.  She treated us like we were family!

Once we had a listing date we had to get the house ready for sale.  This entailed cleaning out many years of possessions.  Once we identified people to help clean up Lois supervised their efforts and ensured that the many jobs were completed.  Probably the most difficult task was deciding how to take care of the findings in the inspection reports.  Lois worked closely with our family, helping us manage our expectations and decide what would best lead to a sale.  Lois, is a take charge type of person, yet she listened carefully to us and helped us think through the many decisions that we needed to make.  Even after we moved our father-in-law to southern California, Lois continued to personally ensure that the final cleanups were completed.  She even took the time to cajole a local club that had equipment at the house to ensure they removed it in a timely manner (right in the midst of the ‘atmospheric river’ event at the end of 2022).

Her efforts paid off and the house sold very quickly for a satisfactory amount.

We highly recommend Lois Johnson as a hardworking, caring, and creative realtor!

Shelley was totally awesome. Buying a country property can be a challenge. She took care of everything for us. I come from a family of Realtor's and know what challenges they face. I would recommend Shelly to anyone interested in buying a home.

    I must say, as a first time home buyer things can be a bit daunting and confusing. Alyssa was so professional, knowledgeable and personable during this entire experience. She held me together and offered up great perspectives on my purchase. After the first few showings she had it in her mind what I really wanted to see and at that point I found the house of my dreams. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. I am so grateful to have worked with her through this very important purchase.

I have worked with Marie on several transactions now and each time her level of
service was more than I ever expected. This particular transaction had a lot of
hurdles to overcome and she was there to help us through each one. Her contacts
with general contractors and other services helped reduce our out of pocket

 Working with Leila Alvarado was a Great Experience! 


She is really professional agent she takes her time to explain the process to buy the home. She has a really good attitude and I like how she works, she answered every question I had. I highly recommend Leila. Next time I purchase another house I will be using Leila.
