Truly have their clients' best interests in mind
This review is long overdue as today is the first anniversary of our closing date. Stan was knowledgeable, professional, and available to guide us through our first home-buying experience. Even one year later, we can reach out with questions or concerns, knowing that we are able to trust the Rectors' expertise.

I trust them completely and have already recommended them to friends.
"Stan and Renee guided me through the difficult sale of my home of 40 years and downsizing to a condo. They were immensely helpful and patient. I trust them completely and have already recommended them to friends."
...We were literally communicated to almost every single day.
"Team Rector truly understands the anxieties a homeowner faces when selling their home. From our initial conversation, to helping prep the property to the closing date of our escrow, we were literally communicated to almost every single day. They are experts in pre-marketing your home through numerous avenues of communication, and on the day we first listed our home, we had 2 solid offers. After 3 days on the market we sold above selling price to one of those buyers. Knowledgeable, friendly and professional, Stan and Renee Rector should be your first contact when looking to buy or sell in the Ventura County Area. "
They helped us to sell our home within a few days for full asking price!
"We met Renee Rector who was showing us a house we wanted to see and immediately liked her. She was incredibly friendly, upbeat, professional and straightforward. We faced a few challenges throughout our process of selling and buying our home, but Renee always stayed positive and helped us navigate through each circumstance. We always felt better after speaking with her. She is so knowledgeable and had faced all of our challenges before, helping us to know we were in great care! Renee and Stan are truly experts in their field! They helped us to sell our home within a few days for full asking price! Renee and Stan really made the whole experience special with congratulatory videos and an amazing welcome basket when we moved into our home. They really go above and beyond like no other agent. We felt very well cared for the entire process. Thank you!!"
The service I received was EXCELLENT, even better than excellent if there is such a thing...
"We didn’t have any experience selling a home, so we asked Sarah Abrams (our property manager) for a recommendation. We didn’t shop for a realtor, we trusted Sarah. Since I have never sold a home before, I wanted a very hands-off approach to the entire process. Renee and Stan were just perfect! I’m a no fluff person and I just wanted the facts. I needed a team to take the reins on the sale and run, as I wanted no part of the day-to-day or ins-and-outs of the process. They listened to me and guided me through the process with ease. I liked that; there was no sugar coating when I asked for specific information. The service I received was EXCELLENT, even better than excellent if there is such a thing. They took good care of what was needed, how quickly it was needed, guided me in the process and made suggestions where I would have had no clue on how to go about what was needed. I had no clue and they made it very easy and seamless. They were both very loving and kind to this first-time seller... I HIGHLY recommend this team! Stan and Renee... You guys are wonderful and very easy to work with. It was a pleasure being taken care of by the two of you. I really don’t know how you can be better at what you do.. Keeping doing what you do; you guys are great at it!"
We love how calm, collected and knowledgeable Stan is.
"Stan's the man! Stan and Renee helped us with our starter home purchase few years back. So when it came time for us to start looking for our individual home, we had no hesitation in having them on board this journey. The sale of our condo and purchase of our individual home were done simultaneously and we couldn't be happier with how it was handled by this dynamic duo! We love how calm, collected and knowledgeable Stan is. He's also got a great crew backing him up to ensure the transactions go through smoothly, with no detail missed. We definitely appreciate the efficiency with which all of the paperwork is handled - including the e-signing solutions used. Stan, Renee, Rob, Tiffany - you guys truly rock! We are really thankful for getting us into our dream home - two times over :)

He is so calm cool kind and knowledgeable he is a blessing for any home buyer . This was our first time buying a home and we had really bad experience before with other agents and I expressed that to Stan from the beginning .

I am so blessed to have found Stan and his wife Renee our experience was so quick accurate and stress free they are really amazing to work with all his staff are so professional and work with urgency to get all your needs and wants covered .

You have a real jewel in Stan Rector
"Dear Brian Troop, Recently my husband, Gary, and I sold our townhouse and purchased a single family home. We had the pleasure of working with Stan Rector on both transactions. With Stan’s help, we were able to sell our property in less than a week!! Then, when it took us a while to find the home of our choice, Stan was able to coordinate with the buyers and keep them happy while they waited for us. However, the part that really stands out for me was looking for our new home. After a very short period of time, Stan just knew what we were looking for. This was crucial for us because we both work out of town, and running back and forth to Simi Valley to look at homes was pretty much out of the question. When either Stan or I would find a listing that sounded good, he would go and look at it before scheduling an appointment for Gary and me to go see it. He would let me know right away if it was exactly what we wanted or not, and if it was he would schedule the walk-through at a time that was convenient for us, even if that meant sweet-talking the sellers. There was such a huge difference between working with Stan on these transactions and the previous realtor we had worked with. That guy does a lot of advertising in Simi, but he was a joke! I was stressed out, I had to keep leaving work to look at houses, and ultimately I found the townhouse on the Internet and had to call them to schedule an appointment Stan was just the opposite. He was a total joy to work with, and we had a great time during the almost 3 months of looking for our house. I have already recommended him to several of my friends for future home purchases, and I tell everyone I know how great he is to work with. They all know about my previous experience, and they know I don’t really give recommendations unless I mean it. You have a real jewel in Stan Rector, and I will definitely call him again when it's time for the next move." - Gary & Brigitte Campbell - Home Buyer & Home Seller
I have someone of your caliber in my corner.
"I truly feel you have my best interests at heart even above your own... I feel very confident with you at the helm that waiting for the right property will be less stressful for me knowing that I have someone of your caliber in my corner." - Charlotte Davis - 1st Time Home Buyer
You always answered my telephone calls
"Dear Stan, Khyle and I would like to thank you very much for the job you did in the process of selling our home and helping us locate our new home. You always answered my telephone calls and never seemed to tire of my on going questions. We appreciate all your hard work more than you'll ever know. Thanks again for the outstanding job. I plan to recommend you to anyone we meet in the area who can benefit from your professionalism and expertise in selling real estate." - Ariele Shiffer - Home Seller
She was FANTASTIC!
"Of the several people involved with this transaction, three will be involved on our next home purchase/sale. Myself, My wife and RENEE SMITH (now Rector). She was FANTASTIC!" - Mark & Leanna Bodnar - Home Buyer
It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you.
"Dear Stan, "I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we appreciate all the help you gave us when we were selling our house. I know that it was challenging for you because we lived out of state, but you made everything so easy for us. Whenever we needed help getting things done, you were always there and whenever we were in town, you always found time to stop by even if it was just to say hi. Your marketing techniques and your friendly attitude are next to none! It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you. I would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a house. My only regret is that you’re not in Arizona to help us find our new home here! Troop Real Estate is very fortunate to have you working for them. Thanks again!" - Don & Debee Farrar - Home Seller

Allowed my family and I to experience a worry-free transaction.

You went way above and beyond the call of duty for me.
"Dear Stan, I hope it’s a wonderful year for you both in every possible way, both personally and professionally. I want to take this opportunity to once again thank you for helping me find and buy my home over the summer. Not a day goes by when I don’t think warmly of you, and I thank my lucky stars that you were my real estate agent. You were truly a godsend to me. It was obviously a very trying time for me personally, the time of my divorce. My divorce was not an easy one, and you were present during the very hardest part of it. I needed a place to make a home. Not just any house. As a newly single mother of two, I dreamed of a lovely home in which to begin anew. It was late spring, nearly summer, and the market was hot. Homes were in short supply; prices were rising; it was a seller’s market and I was a buyer on a bit of a budget. I know that buying or selling a home can be a stressful event. It’s a very big decision, often full of complications. When my ex-husband and I bought our first home together, it took us about a year and a half to find the right home and make the purchase. As first-time buyers, we felt uncertain that we were making the right decisions. This was complicated by the fact that we never had a real estate agent who we felt understood our needs, someone we could trust completely, someone who actually cared whether we found the right home or not. It often felt as if the agent was not really working for us at all. Consequently, we went through six different agents during our home search and I had little confidence in the one we used to purchase that home. For this reason, I am so glad that I found you at the beginning of my home search, and that you were there with me through each step of the process. When I called Troop initially to inquire about a listing I saw in the newspaper, you answered the phone. What a lucky day for me that was! I had just stumbled upon the best real estate agent I could ever ask for. From that moment on, I never had a single doubt about doing business with you. You listened closely to my needs, you took me out to show me homes, you e-mailed me new listings every day and we worked together until we found The Home. It is perfect for the needs of my family. It is exactly everything I hoped for. You gave me unlimited access to your website, which was a wealth of valuable information. I was able to research prospective homes online, 24 hours a day. I knew I had access to the most recent listings and could act on them immediately. Your website put the information right at my fingertips. I appreciated that and so much more. I appreciated your professionalism: You always returned my calls more promptly than I expected. (Whenever I called you! On weekends! During odd hours!) I appreciated your honesty: You gave me your opinion when I asked for it and when I needed it. I appreciated your commitment: You helped me to write up on offer on Mother’s Day while you had your family in the other room. (You were available on Mother’s Day!) I appreciated your positive attitude: You were there with a kind word or smile, and we shared many a laugh (and you made the process FUN). I appreciated your patience: You listened to me cry on the phone when I was stressed about my divorce and how it was impacting my home search (sobbing clients—yikes—not your responsibility). I appreciated how personable you were to my kids (my little boy thinks you are awesome and still asks about you). I appreciated your real estate savvy: You knew what properties were worth and didn’t let me overbid. (I’m glad I passed on the place with the inflated asking price. It wasn’t as good a home as the one we waited a little longer for.) You went way above and beyond the call of duty for me. You would liaison with my attorney and my mortgage broker whenever necessary. You shielded me from the calls of nervous real estate agents up the line when I couldn’t close my escrow on time due to circumstances beyond my control. All these other realtors were freaking out and yet you remained calm and focused. You controlled the transaction at all times and were aggressive in making certain that things were done on time and that other people were doing their jobs. You saw to every little detail. You helped me get the deal done. I tell my friends that I am sure I would not have gotten this house without you as my agent. You made it all come together. How can I ever thank you enough, Stan? Well, I can tell everyone I know how instrumental you were in making that house my home. And, trust me, I do tell everyone just that. I tell them that there is no harder-working agent on the planet than you. There is no agent who provides better service. You earned that commission many times over. There is no agent who takes more pride in what he does for his clients. There is no agent who cares more on a personal level about his clients’ satisfaction and, yes, happiness. I know you had other clients, and yet you made me feel as if I was your only client. When I’m ready to sell or buy again, you will once again be my agent of choice. You are my real estate consultant for life and, as a matter of fact, I can now truly say that I “have a friend in the business." - Karen Burns - 1st Time Home Buyer
Renee provided invaluable advice about purchasing.
"Dear Mr. Troop, I am writing to let you know of my experience with one of your Real Estate Professionals. Her name is Renee Smith and I can honestly say, without a doubt, had I not been contacted by this woman, I would not have found and been able to afford a home that is perfect for me and one that I love. Now, I have been watching the real estate market since my divorce over six years ago just waiting for the right time to pounce on a home purchase. I knew every listing out there, how long it had been out there and followed the market softening over the last year. This is how Renee found me – I visited her web page and entered my email information. Even though the prices had begun their decline, I still couldn’t find a place I felt I would want to live in that was large enough, in the neighborhood of my preference, had a garage, a yard, and last but not least 2 bedrooms, 1 or more baths and don’t even bother me if it didn’t have a fireplace! There were plenty to choose from within this criterion but not in my price range. I actually decided to give up as I felt quite guilty about how much effort, work and attention Renee was putting into my home purchase quest and told her to just let it go for now as I had decided I wasn’t going to swing a home I could afford and love in this market. But Renee didn’t give up… From the very beginning, Renee provided invaluable advice about purchasing. My questions were answered (in a way I could understand) and she was always up front and forthcoming about my personal situation for a home purchase. In spite of my reluctance to continue my search, she asked me for a chance to let her prove herself to me and promised that if there was a way to get into a home I loved, she would find it. I will be closing escrow within the next week. Not only did she find me an absolute hidden treasure in a perfect location, she was able to work down the price a bit so that I could afford it. Further, when I met with the notary yesterday to sign my loan documents, she was flabbergasted with the excellent loan I received and mentioned so several times. She also indicated that she had not seen pricing this low and rates this great in a while. So, sir, between Renee Smith and her finance referral Mark Footitt, I will once again enter the ranks of home ownership after a long and tedious road which I literally believed would be fruitless. Please accept my utmost gratitude to you and your staff for making this goal a realization for me!" - Joanne Smith - 1st Time Home Buyer
Your passion for real estate and helping people is no joke.
"Hey Stan. The new house is fantastic! It’s exactly what I needed. We saw MANY houses, and several houses I wanted, but this place is really the perfect house and is exactly what me and my kids needed. Thank you for the years of stellar real estate advice and service! When we met in 2002 I had just divorced and was rebuilding my life. You played a big part in that recovery process. I had met a bunch of realtors as I looked for a new place to start over. You were the only one who understood what I needed. After we closed on that property most other realtors would have moved on to the next sale, never to be seen again. I appreciate the many times you stopped by to visit as I remodeled and the way you’ve continued to stay in touch. I knew when it was time to for me to sell I would be calling upon your services again. Last year when I decided to sell and find a new place I was nervous about the market as both a seller and a buyer. It was a time of some indecision for me. Thanks for your professionalism, patience and understanding. Your passion for real estate and helping people is no joke. When we closed on my new home, I had only two days to move out of my old place and into the new one. I didn’t have time to arrange for movers. I still can’t believe YOU, my real estate agent helped me move all my stuff! I am very lucky and quite grateful to have such an amazing real estate agent whom I also consider a friend. Thanks, Stan!" Carlos Schulte Home Seller & Home Buyer

You always answered our crazy phone calls no matter what and had such a wonderful enthusiastic response. If it wasn't for all your attention to detail and your constant information to us, we would have gone completely crazy. You are truly a caring and hard working realtor. We had two other before we found the cute guy on the internet. We would have never been able to get this wonderful first home without your help. That much we do know and will never forget it. When we sell our house down the road and buy a new one, you are our guy from now till forever. Thank you so much, Stan" - Laura Shanders & Candice Knopp - 1st Time Home Buyers
You have been so amazing!

I most especially appreciate the rapid responsive (same day turnaround) time of your communications with me. I have been adamantly recommending your expertise to others in the hopes that they can experience the same excellent service as I have with you. I look forward to continuing our business relations. Thank you tons!!!" - Prie La-Touche - 1st Time Home Buyer
We certainly got lucky...
"Dear Renee, Ray and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellence in real estate service. We certainly got lucky when I chose you online a few months ago (based on your well-done website and offer to send us listing information). From our beginning contact through the challenging process of narrowing down the best home for our family, you have earned an A++ in all categories. You have always been so pleasant, patient, and prompt in every correspondence and at each meeting. The client portal you set me up with was a wonderful tool for house hunting! It enabled me to preview well over 100 homes with greater detail and more photos than sites like realtor.com. You sent me new listings based on our price and size needs nearly every day. I loved the way I was able to categorize the homes into files of interest or rejection. It also provided a basis for you to tune into our priorities as buyers as you screened available properties prior to showing us approximately 28 homes! We would strongly recommend your highly professional real estate services to both buyers and sellers after experiencing your strong knowledge of the market, superior negotiation skills, and expertise in customer care. Not once did you pressure us or make us feel uncomfortable, but instead you led us through a stressful process and offered us numerous helpful resources. Your financial broker and inspection references were top-notch as well. Wow! You have certainly earned applause for your expertise in all areas! Thanks again Renee." - Ray & Andrea Dickerson - Home Buyer
I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your 'ever-ready' service
"Just a note to the Do-It Guy! I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your 'ever-ready' service. I know whenever I call, you're there. We've done several transactions smoothly together and I look forward to more in the near future. Real estate is generally a non-liquid asset but when it's time to sell, you make me forget that because IT’S SOLD! Thanks again!" - Don Costales - Investor

We are so grateful to have found you
"Dear Stan & Renee, It was such a nice surprise to see you both...it had been too long! These last, nearly, six months (after we bought our new home) have been full and exciting, to say the least! We are so grateful to have found you as not just our Realtor, but as our friends! We really need to to do a dinner, BBQ, or something! Thank you for the bouncy chair, Hayden loves it! Hope you are well! XO" - Heidi & Charlie Rutter - 1st Time Home Buyer
You understood my needs and treated me like I was your best friend
"Much love to you both!" "My Sweet Renee and Stan, I wanted to thank you for making buying a home so easily. This has been the hardest time in my life. I found myself without my own home for the first time in 23 years. There was an urgency to purchase a home and bring my family back together, yet I was scared to death to take the step alone. Renee as soon as I met you I felt an instant bond. You understood my needs and treated me like I was your best friend. You took control of the situation knowing I needed that and explained everything in such detail that I didn't even have to think twice about anything. You are professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I feel proud that you consider me one of your friends and lucky to have you as one of mine. Stan, you're totally awesome! Boy did you guys get lucky finding each other! Much love to you both!" - Stephanie Martino - Home Buyer

We highly recommend Renee to future clients.
"She is an outstanding real estate professional." "We highly recommend Renee to future clients. She is an outstanding real estate professional. Renee is very good at finding the right home for a buyer. She repeatedly told us that she loves her work, which was so evident in everything she did. She provided excellent service and even handled the escrow for our Moorpark home while we honeymooned in Hawaii! She not only negotiated a $40,000 reduction in price for our home on half an acre in Moorpark, soon after our purchase, Renee did a remarkable job of selling our dilapidated home in Topanga in the Santa Monica Mountains. Renee was a Godsend to us. She undertook the difficult Topanga sale because she did not want the co-owner to take economic advantage of us. We believe that we could not have gotten such a large net amount without Renee's help. We are very grateful to Renee for making it possible for us to build a life together in Moorpark. Any buyer or seller who needs her services will be amazed by how much she extends herself to represent her client’s interests. She even went out of her way to help our mom find a Realtor to sell her tropical paradise in Waipio Valley on Hawaii Island. We highly recommend Renee and shall seek her out if we again need real estate services." Walter & Beverly Beech Home Seller & Home Buyer
Just keep doing what you're doing!
"I believe that you are doing exactly what needs to be done..." "Stan. You had asked me what I thought you and Renee can do to get yourselves "out there" and "exposed" without appearing like thousands of other agents who don't have the integrity and work ethic that you have. Well, I'll tell you that Don and I believe that you are doing exactly what needs to be done to build a solid and secure foundation for you, Renee and your daughter. Every single turn of this real estate transaction since our first conversation has exhibited to Don and I that you two are the most professional, intelligent, keenly insightful and, truly kind and caring team we've ever had the pleasure to do business with. That, in itself, is the most important vehicle you have to become the most successful real estate team in Ventura County and I would venture to say even more countries in the not so distant future. No worries my friend, you are on a strong and broad path to a great future. Just keep doing what you're doing!" - Don & Robin Kinder - Home Seller
Stan you're my Realtor®
"Your clients have been and will always be in good hands. " "My dear Friends. Your clients have been and will always be in good hands. From the day on the bike when I said, "Stan you're my Realtor®, find me a house!" You were on it like white on rice. Really good stuff. Just think, it began on a training ride and ended (closed) on the High Sierra Century ride. How cool is that? All in all, I appreciate you both very much, Thank you." ~ Chuck Chuck Glaus - 1st Time Home Buyer
You are INCREDIBLE!
"I don’t think there are words to express how wonderful the level of service you have provided us..." "You are INCREDIBLE! The excitement hit me this morning! When you called last night, it did not seem real. I can’t believe you pulled it off and to the extent that you pulled it off. You are amazing, and I mean every word of it. I had really given up on this property in my heart, I think both of us did. So I wanted to express how truly excited and appreciative of everything you have done and accomplished for us, and don’t think for a second that you won’t be "Renee the GREAT" when someone needs an agent. I don’t think there are words to express how wonderful the level of service you have provided us, it is incomprehensible, and the world would be a better place if people had half of what you have!!" - April Moller - 1st Time Home Buyer
We found that you had the most extensive expertise
"We would highly recommend your services to any of our friends." "Well, we are almost at the close of escrow and Dolores and I would like to personally extend the greatest thanks to you and your staff for the outstanding job you have done in completely turning our incredibly difficult situation around into a success. Looking back we can now clearly see how you systematically dismantled the problem and achieved the end result in the time frame you envisioned…….outstanding!!! In this economy our hardship may have been nothing unusual as I am sure it has impacted many people; however, your support and exceptional performance were certainly your outstanding trademark from all the other agents and people we considered. We found that you had the most extensive expertise in providing the legal timelines, the much need property management support person in time, providing the overall portfolio with legal contacts, the complete marking plan & advertising package and of course the actual experience with the bank in the Short Sales process. We would again like to graciously extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for all your efforts and team work with all the players. In my view, this was a complex one, but you really knocked it out of the park. We would highly recommend your services to any of our friends." - Steve & Dolores Pickei - Home Seller
We appreciate all her hard work
"We appreciate all her hard work and would definitely recommend her to our friends and family!" "We decided to make the big leap and put our Simi Valley townhome on the market, a decision that was not easy given current the real estate market. Luckily, we were referred to Renee Rector (of Rector & Associates) by our parents, who had worked with her to purchase a new home. The whole “selling a property” was a new experience for us. We found great comfort, and someone we could trust, in Renee. She took the time to not only talk about her experience in the Simi Valley market but also to listen to our expectations, fears, and hopes. From our first conversation until the final close of escrow, we found Renee to be responsive to our questions, diligent in following up with prospective buyers, and someone who was clearly working for us. We are glad to have had her help in navigating thru this whole process. We appreciate all her hard work and would definitely recommend her to our friends and family!" - Vineet & Nandini Sarin - Home Seller

I could not recommend them more highly.
"I could not recommend them more highly." "I have never even "heard" of any agent with the incredible levels of professionalism, tenacity, integrity and knowledge that they both possess! They stuck with us almost a year to sell our house, and so far 9 months to find a new one and their level of effort and commitment have never faded. We consider them both friends of the family. I could not recommend them more highly. If you use anyone else, you are missing out on a truly incredible team." - John & Quiche Stein - Home Seller & Home Buyer

Stan and Renee are truly one-of-a-kind realtors.
"Stan and Renee are truly one-of-a-kind Realtors. " "Stan and Renee made finding and purchasing our home easy and stress-free. Even with the challenge of finding our perfect home, while my husband was serving overseas; we were able to close and move in a week after his return. Stan and Renee are truly one-of-a-kind Realtors. They handled everything so well, I would definitely recommend them to everyone I know." - Steve & Evette Johnson - Home Buyer
Renee helped me sell a house at a tough market time.
"She really had to put a lot of hard work into selling my home" "Renee helped me sell a house at a tough market time. She was very determined, always available, creative in finding new marketing avenues, very professional, always in communication with me, and took care of every aspect of the sale. She really had to put a lot of hard work into selling my home, and I was very happy with the way she handled everything. I think she is a great agent." - Tina Avalon - Home Seller
Our sale couldn't have been handled better.
"Our sale couldn't have been handled better." "Stan's diligence in selling our condo not only got it sold in a really tough market but for significantly more than comps in the area. Our sale couldn't have been handled better. Highly recommended." - Lee & Allison Hileman - Home Seller
Rest assured you will be handling all of our Real Estate needs going forward!
"Rest assured you will be handling all of our Real Estate needs going forward!" "When we first made the decision to sell our home in Simi, the decision was an easy one. After all, we were building our dream home. As you know we originally planned to sell two properties, one in Simi and a rental in LA. Well, the building process dragged out quite further than anticipated and as we were looking for agents to list our home we did not just want to pick someone out of a phone book. Low and behold, an acquaintance had your card on her desk and I inquired as to her opinion. She was genuinely thrilled to offer her recommendation of you and your services. When we called and first met you we were blown away by your Real Estate knowledge and insight, especially in this turbulent and difficult economic climate. You did not offer an overbearing attitude as many Real Estate professionals do, but rather a calm and assuring demeanor which made us comfortable throughout the process. Your marketing abilities were beyond any we could have anticipated and resulted in an ongoing traffic count which assured us that when we offered the right price for their market, buyers would respond. Of course, we were greedy and listed higher than you suggested, but you guided us through the process rather than demanding change. As we began to see the realities of the marketplace it became clear that there were strategic price points that in fact could entice offers. Once we grasped this and lowered our price we received 4 offers in a 2 day period. Your direction on how to handle those multiple offers was equally impressive, netting an even higher sales price. We settled on a great buyer with solid qualifications and completed our sale within 30 days. It is clear we could not have gotten this accomplished without you, in fact, our other property in LA never sold and we pulled it off the market. The agent handling that property was unknown to us and on a scale of 1-10 was a 3 at best. You, on the other hand, have raised the bar immeasurably making it likely impossible for anyone else to satisfy us the way you did. Rest assured you will be handling all of our Real Estate needs going forward! You are the Best! You took us from where we were to where wanted to be! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!" - Ed & Sandra Flora - Home Seller
He MADE it happen...
"They really care about the people that they work with." "For the second time in less than 5 years, we have to thank Stan and Renee Rector for everything they have done for us. The first time we met Stan, we wanted to sell our townhouse and move into something a little bigger. It took some time and a lot of work on his part, but we found the perfect home for us. Not only that, but we developed a wonderful friendship with both Stan and Renee that we cherish. However, we had a goal – we wanted to move to West Ventura County within a few years, so we had to keep that in mind. Last year, we wanted to move, but the downturn in the economy made it nearly impossible – or so we thought. We received an unexpected gift that would assist us in the purchase of a new home, and we called Stan to talk about our options. We were looking to buy a home in Camarillo, and Stan set us up with his website so we could browse the homes that were available. After a couple of months, we still had not found anything acceptable that was within our budget, so we again called Stan to expand our search area. I am from Oxnard and was looking to move closer to my parents. My dad was 86 years old and in failing health, and my mom is 82 and cannot walk without assistance. They needed me to be close so I could make sure that their needs were being met. My husband was hesitant to move to Oxnard but knew that it would make me happier to be near my family, so he made the sacrifice. Stan expanded our search area and we began looking in both Camarillo and Oxnard. We thought we found the home we were looking for just a short while later, but it was a “short sale.” Stan let us know that this type of purchase was not easy, and would probably take some time, but we went ahead with an offer. While we were waiting for the banks to make a decision, I lost my dad. It was now imperative that we get to Oxnard somehow, someway, and as soon as possible. We looked at other areas of Oxnard that would meet our (impossibly high) standards and found a home that I just had to see. And although Stan and Renee were leaving in just a couple of days to get married and honeymoon in Hawaii, Stan said he would meet me at the house the next afternoon. When I got there, Stan was already in the house. He came out to greet me with a HUGE smile on his face and said, “I think we found your house…” I walked through the house and realized that he was right. I had tingles (warm and fuzzies, Stan calls them) because it was perfect! It had everything we were looking for – hardwood and tile floors, parking for our RV, a huge backyard, a bonus room for our family get-togethers, and a great kitchen. Not to mention the fact that the price was really right! We immediately made an offer. So did a bunch of other people. And Stan and Renee were leaving town. It didn’t look very good for us. While Stan was gone, my husband and I discussed other options, and I continued to look at other houses. Not very many met our criteria, and most of the ones that did were foreclosures that were beat up and would require a lot of additional money, time and work to make them livable. We found one that met almost all of our requirements – it was a two-story, we wanted a single story – and we had decided that, since we would probably not get the first one, we would go look at it when Stan and Renee got back into town. As I was signing off of the computer after showing my husband the pictures of the house on Stan’s website, the doorbell rang. All I could see through the beveled glass of my front door was a person and a lot of colors, and when I opened the door I saw Stan. He was holding a bunch of balloons, a bottle of wine and some paperwork and he was wearing a gigantic smile. I looked at him and said, “Shut up!! We got the house?” He replied, “We got the house!” That’s when the tears started falling. We did not know until that night that Stan spent a majority of his time (that he should have been honeymooning with his beautiful bride) on the phone talking to and texting the realtor that was representing the seller. He made sure that she knew that we were the ones that should have this house, and he MADE it happen. It’s been a few months, and I am still in awe of Stan and how he got us this house. Oh, but it doesn’t end there. We still had to go through escrow, inspections, and appraisals. Stan was there with us for every single one and made sure that we knew where we were at all times. The escrow company was difficult to work with, but Stan was on top of everything, making sure that nothing got too out of hand. Finally, we closed escrow. Stan was out of town, but Renee called to let us know that we were the (very) proud owners of a new home. I don’t want to spoil the little surprises they blessed us with during and even after our home buying experience but take my word, compared to other realtors that we have known and tried to work with (before we met Stan), Stan reigns supreme! We have all heard the horror stories, and have this idea in our heads that realtors are just like car salesmen. Not Stan and Renee. They really care about the people that they work with. They get to know you and what you need and like, then they make it happen for you. They even have a network of people that they can refer you to if you need help in other areas like getting a home loan, termite inspections, appraisals, electrical work, anything!! I’ve been telling everyone I know that even hints at THINKING about buying or selling a home to call Stan and Renee Rector. No other realtor can compare, and no other realtor will take better care of you through the entire home process and afterward than Rector and Associates." - Gary & Brigitte Campbell - Home Buyer
Dear Potential Home Buyer:
"We trust that Stan and Renee will provide this elevated level of service to you as well." "Dear Potential Home Buyer: We heard about Renee Rector through some friends of ours. It was their first home purchase too, and we knew they had a lot of the same concerns we did. Like a lot of people, we had heard some alarming stories about real estate in general. We knew this would be the biggest purchase of our lives, so we wanted to carefully make the best decisions for us and our future. We had never heard of the Rectors, but our friends insisted that their experience was amazing. To us, a personal referral from people like us was worth more than anything the Internet or a bus stop bench could tell us. So we called Renee. Renee is really energetic and easy to get along with. She explained the process really well and has been wonderful at listening to our concerns. She was very honest and understanding right away. She referred us to Stan, her business partner, and husband because he specializes in the neighborhoods we were interested in. To us, admitting that Stan is stronger in this area showed integrity. We knew we could trust them with this huge step in our lives. Stan has an easygoing demeanor that was really soothing during the whole process. He is patient, honest, and perceptive. His experience is invaluable and he is great at explaining the nuts and bolts of home ownership. Stan and Renee worked tirelessly together for us behind the scenes, trying to make our seemingly impossible dream a reality. Once we found our future home, Stan and Renee kicked into overdrive. There were so many confusing documents and deadlines! They both went out of their way to make sure we understood what was going on at all times, what we were signing, why we were signing, what the next step was, and what else needs to be done. Whenever we had a concern about price, they listened and advocated for us. Although he has a relaxed demeanor, Stan is a fighter behind the scenes! We got such an amazing deal that we could hardly believe it! We even closed a day early when we told them family was flying out to help us move. Stan and Renee make sure to add a personal touch throughout the entire process. We could tell this is not just a business to them. This is their livelihood, reputation, and their lives. It matters to them on a personal level that this is an enjoyable, educational experience for us. The entire time, they were ready at a moment’s notice to address any conceivable concern. When we move again, we look forward to calling up Stan and Renee because we know they went the extra mile for us and our friends. We trust that Stan and Renee will provide this elevated level of service to you as well." - Jeff Halbleib & Megan Slota - 1st Time Home Buyer
You have made friends for life!
"We thank you for your support and friendship and we will stay in contact." "Thank you for all that you've done on a professional and personal level to get us into our home. Having you part of our home buying process gave us comfort in knowing everything was taken care of. Your names are out of our mouth as soon as some say they are looking for a home. We thank you for your support and friendship and we will stay in contact. You have made friends for life!" - Ed & Sandra Flora - Home Buyer
We can't thank you enough for all your hard work
"We look forward to having the chance to recommend you and Stan to others in the future!" "We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and professional expertise through out the process. Knowing you were always on top of all the details made it much less stressful, and we never worried about whether our best interests were at stake. We both really appreciated that you cared as much as we did throughout, and we look forward to having the chance to recommend you and Stan to others in the future!" - Nick & Christie Foy - 1st Time Home Buyer
They actually care about their clients
"They didn’t just try to push us into any home to make a sale, they actually care about their clients." "Dear prospective home buyer: My brother in law met Stan & gave us his card when we mentioned we were looking for a Realtor. Stan and Renee were both very knowledgeable in every aspect of the home buying process, walked us through everything, since we were pretty much clueless, LOL! We felt they really cared about helping us and making sure we understood the entire process. We felt they definitely went above and beyond… listening to our needs and responded to them accordingly. The home buying process was a definitely a learning experience but easier than we expected! We both felt at ease, like we were dealing with friends, and not pushy sales people. They helped us accomplish your overall goal. Stan went out of his way to help us find a place and made sure we were finding the right kind of home for us. When Stan and Renee asked us, “What did we do for you that maybe another agent would not have?” Our answer is Lots! To name a few… again making sure we understood everything about the home buying process, caring that we were actually going to be in a home that met our family’s needs, that was in good shape, and that we could afford, coming to us with the paper work and documents and following up on everything! On a scale of 1-10, I give them an eleven on the quality of their representation. They didn’t just try to push us into any home to make a sale, they actually care about their clients. I would recommend Stan and Renee to anyone considering buying a home." - Casey & Emily Bauer - 1st Time Home Buyer
Your efforts were greatly appreciated
"We are confident that our "home" paths will cross again! Thank you!" "Stan and Renee, We just wanted to say Thank You for all of the hard work you have provided to us. Your efforts were greatly appreciated, and we are sorry that it did not come together. We are confident that our "home" paths will cross again! Thank you!" - Bill White - Home Seller
They are absolutely outstanding real estate agents
"Good luck for your business!" "Stan and Renee are the best partners we've ever met. They are absolutely outstanding real estate agents with extensive estate experience. They are always available whenever we want to look at the properties or ask questions. They know very well what we are looking for and help us to find our ideal home with a lower price. Notably, they also guided us everything in detail through the escrow. We are lucky to meet them and greatly appreciate their help from the bottom of our heart. Good luck for your business!" - Lifu Zhao & Qiulan Ma - Home Buyer
They gave us good advise
"We would definitely use them in the future." "Renee and Stan have been a pleasure to work with. They walked us through every step and really listen to what was important to us. They gave us good advice and would take the time to explain the reasons why we should or shouldn't do something. We would definitely use them in the future." - Jason & Natalie Cannon - Home Buyer
We really did not know where to turn for help
"We really did not know where to turn for help in selling our home until I found "Stan & Renee Rector's" Realty Web site." "Three years ago my wife Nadia and I were wondering if it was possible if we could sell our new Mobil Home and buy a condominium which we thought might hold its value and be something we could leave our children. We were very inexperienced at how to go about doing this so we picked a Realtor out of the yellow pages. We did this three times with no luck and with very little effort from the Realtors we picked. We really did not know where to turn for help in selling our home until I found "Stan & Renee Rector's" Realty Web site. We were still under contract with a local realtor and waited until the contract ended. In the mean time I was getting information from "Stan and Renee" about local property for sale. After two month of emails and receiving information we decided to sign a contract with "Stan and Renee" and what a difference from what we had seen from the other Realtors. Right away we could tell they were very aggressive in there selling techniques and things started happening very quickly. Within three months they had found a buyer. Nadia and I both know from firsthand experience that we would still be in the Mobil home waiting to sell if it were not for the professional and highly energy driven work that "Stan and Renee Rector" put into selling our home and finding our new home for us to enjoy and the best part of all is they are just good people. Thank You, Stan and Renee, for a job well done." Mike & Nadia Riley - Home Seller & Home Buyer
There is no one out there that can match....
"But with you guys helping us, we knew we didn’t have to worry." "Dearest Stan and Renee, Well, once again you guys have gone above and beyond the call of duty for Gary and I. This time, unfortunately, we had to short sell our Simi Valley house after moving to Oxnard. As you well know, the move was necessary and came just in time. With your assistance, we were able to rent out the Simi house for a little over a year, but things didn’t work out, necessitating the sale. Anyone that has ever sold a house knows that it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do, so multiply that a million times and there’s your short sale. But with you guys helping us, we knew we didn’t have to worry. Actually, it was really kind of painless on our end. Like the proverbial duck on the water – Gary and I were calm on the top side while you guys were paddling furiously underwater. So, we were off and running with the clock ticking with the bank. So many challenges with those loan people, but with your referral, we were assisted by a third-party negotiator so we didn’t have to deal with the banks anymore. Renee, we appreciated your indulgence and understanding when we were trying to figure out what to list the house for, and of course, you were right. The hardest part of the whole experience was waiting for the banks to make their decision, but you were all over it, working with the negotiator and the banks to get their approval of the deal. They were very tough to deal with, but Renee, you called, faxed and emailed until the job was done without a moment to spare. We’ve heard horror stories of short sales taking up to a year or more to close – IF they close. Ours took just about 3 months, and we would have to attribute that completely to the two of you. This is the second home we’ve sold with Rector and Associates, and if (I hope we don’t) we sell our current home, of COURSE we will be calling you. As far as we’re concerned, there is no one out there that can match the efficiency, friendliness, compassion, intelligence or integrity of Stan and Renee Rector." - Gary and Brigitte Campbell - Home Seller
Far different than what I expected
"They recommended the Rectors based on how honest and hard working they were." "We first learned about Stan and Renee through our younger and trusted neighbors. They both worked in the real estate business but not as agents. They recommended the Rectors based on how honest and hard working they were. After having interviewed other agents it wasn't difficult to choose as Stan's demeanor and knowledge of the Internet for marketing ease. I think we were quite vocal in our wishes and needs. Stan was very fair about what must be done to the house and if we didn't "get it", he let us see for ourselves which was a smart tactic for us. As far as a learning experience goes his knowledge of the business was so helpful, that yes, we learned quite a bit. Far different than what I expected as I had heard many stories about agents that didn't return calls, kept knowledge to themselves when it should have been shared with the sellers, and other horror stories. Would another agent kept a constant look out for our unoccupied house, water the potted plants that we were unable to take with, and let us know how things were progressing on a consistent basis? I don't know that answer but we were truly impressed. The most helpful aspect was their knowledge of good, decently priced contacts that were needed at different times. That comes from hard work and experience. Everyone who did anything in the house was completely qualified and did a wonderful job. We were very very happy with the quality of the Rector's work and their work ethics. I certainly would recommend them to any of our good friends in Southern California. Bless them and all the best to two very deserving people." - Robert & Vicki Briggs - Home Seller
Stan and his wife Renee demonstrated a level of professionalism and ethics not often seen these days
"Stan and his wife Renee demonstrated a level of professionalism and ethics not often seen these days." "When I made the decision to buy another house I was faced with the task of finding a Real Estate Agent that I felt comfortable with and that I could trust. As it happened, I had mentioned my plan to relocate to a relative of mine. She told me about some friends of hers in the real estate profession, Stan and Renee Rector. She said that Stan had recently helped her and her husband with the purchase of a new home. Shortly after that, I spoke with Mr. Rector on the telephone and I told him what I was looking for. He put together some listings that met my specifications and we set up some dates and times to go and take a look at them. As we were driving around from location to location I had a number of questions for Stan, and this in between time gave me the opportunity to talk to him at length. It had been over two decades since my last experience with a real estate agent. I remembered that experience as being very mechanical and dry. Stan gave me a good overview of some of the changes that had taken place in the housing industry in recent years and answered all of my questions in detail. He also provided me with some information about his background in construction, which game some credibility to what he was telling me. I found Stan's demeanor to be very pleasant and down to earth. I appreciated his candor and this exchange of information was something that I didn't get during my previous house buying experience twenty years earlier. The houses that were shown to me were in line with the specifications that I had given to him and he was able to answer additional questions for me drawing upon his previous experience in construction. Stan also provided me with an internet link to preview the homes before taking the time to physically view them. That saved a lot of time by making it possible to bypass those homes that held no visual appeal for me. Once I decided on the house that I wanted, the whole process became seamless. Stan stayed on top of everything and demonstrated an effective use of time and resources. He also kept me informed by providing me with frequent updates during the negotiation and buying process. Overall, I found the entire experience to be very easy with a minimum of stress. Stan and his wife Renee demonstrated a level of professionalism and ethics not often seen these days. Based on my experience with Stan and Renee, I would have no problem pointing others in their direction. - Joseph Graham - Home Buyer
Stan was great, keeping us informed every step.
"Stan was great, keeping us informed every step. He solved problems, installed items, tossed trash, hooked us up with a great lender, and was there to welcome us "home". Stan stood by us." - Christopher and Robi - Home Buyer
With Renee's encouragement
"Unlike many agents we have come across, they value relationships and that continues after the job is done" "Stan and Renee assisted us with the purchase of an investment property. We saw a fantastic property listed as a short sale that was coming up for trustee sale the next day and pointed it out to Renee, believing that we were too late to act on it. With Renee's encouragement, we got an application in to the sellers and accepted by them the same night with less than 10 h to the scheduled trustee sale. The perseverance of Renee caused the trustee to halt the trustee sale literally 1 h before it was due to take place for them to consider our offer, and postponed the trustee sale by 6 weeks. The short sale was approved 2 weeks later, and Renee's support over the next 4 weeks was outstanding as we battled an immovable trustee while trying to get escrow to close over a the holiday period. We finally closed with the trustee sale still scheduled for the following day. The short sale process, with the constant threat of a looming foreclosure halting the sale before completion, is not for the faint-of-heart, but Renee was up to the job and I have no hesitation in recommending her. We will be using her again if and when we buy another property. Did I mention that the property we bought was an absolute steal? A good $50,000 below fair market value and, after a little bit of work, we have prospective tenants fighting each other to move in. Soon to be cash-flow-positive, this property will be a great long term investment. On a personal note, Stan and Renee are great people. Unlike many agents we have come across, they value relationships and that continues after the job is done and they have been paid. They have even helped us in our advertising of the rental to their network without charge." Adrian InvestorAdrian
Renee was AMAZING at supporting us...
"She was there with information, support, and suggestions at every step of the process before we even asked." "Renee was AMAZING at supporting us through our first home-buying experience. We could not have asked for a better agent. She was there with information, support, and suggestions at every step of the process before we even asked. Renee made herself available anytime we needed to access the house and spent many hours keeping us company while various technicians came and went. She makes the agent-buyer relationship a personal one, which greatly reduces the stress and anxiety that can come with buying a home. It felt like we had not only an extremely knowledgeable agent but also a friend helping us through the process. Renee was in constant communication, even if was just to tell us she didn't have any news, and we were never left hanging without calls or updates as we waited for seller responses. Only a few weeks into the process we nicknamed Renee "The Fighter" because she fought for what we wanted every step of the way. We will be highly recommending Renee and Stan to anyone we know who is buying a home!" - Ryanne - Home Buyer
Renee went way beyond any of our expectations
...after 8 years of looking for a house, we were finally able to find one with Renee's help!" "During the 8 years that we have been looking for a property we've worked with more than 10 different real estate agents, the quality of our experiences ranged from satisfactory to beyond bad. Eventually, we gave up on using an agent to help us find a house and decided that we would just look for a property ourselves and if we liked the property we would use the selling agent to represent us. We used many different websites to aid us in our search and then we eventually checked out a property listed on the Internet that Renee happened to be showing. As our experiences with real estate agents left more to be desired, when we met Renee for the first time we had no expectations. We just wanted to see the property that she was showing and that was supposed to be it. But from our very first meeting, we were completely shocked with how knowledgeable Renee is and how responsive she was to any questions or concerns that we had, needless to say Renee went way beyond any of our expectations. After coming home and discussing the matter, we decided to give Renee a shot as our real estate agent. Renee's professionalism, patience, and her talent to explain complicated issues in a simple and effective manner made our business relationship very pleasant and easy going. Renee's experience and professionalism allowed her to help us navigate multiple issues during our purchase process (the seller's agent was her daughter and unfortunately they transferred some of their personal issues into the purchase process). Thanks to Renee we not only found and bought our dream house, but we managed to get it at a fair price as well! We would also like to mention that Renee referred us to a very helpful lender who helped us navigate the entire loan process. I think it speaks volumes of her professionalism when she can refer us to a quality professional like our lender. Once again we want to express our gratitude to your company and Renee! We are very happy that we met Renee and are more than pleased with the results. You should be proud of having Renee as a part of your team since she is a very valuable asset of your company simply because she stays true to her motto: "Helping you get from where you are ...to where you want to be!" We can testify to that because after 8 years of looking for a house we were finally able to find one with Renee's help! Now our sons are using Renee's services as well and we have no doubt that they will find their house with Renee as their agent!" - Sergey and Yelena Pinchuk and our entire family - Home Buyer
You had everything under control
"You had everything under control and we never felt left out or un-informed" "We have only positive feedback for you Stan and Renee, you both did an absolutely fantastic job getting us where we are today!!!

We loved your honesty and felt very safe in your hands every step on the way!!! You had everything under control and we never felt left out or un informed!!! Thank you, you made it easy!!! But we could not have done this without you!!!" - The Nielsen Family - Home Buyer
I will be recommending EVERYONE to go with Stan & Renee
"He was very much my advocate in the buying process and always had me and my family's best interest at heart." "All the credit goes to Stan & Renee for being so patient and helping in buying our Sweet HOME. My Story started with web, I don't know how to proceed and how this works in US Market, got couple of web sites information from Friends and Family and started searching for properties and I came across house that we liked on search and it was showing contact Stan & Renee to get showing appointment, so we called and started our journey with him and came to know more about home buying market and what are all sale types and got clarified with many open questions we had and I was impressed the way he clarified and started working with him continuously, and referred to my friend as well he bought house within 6 months of his journey with Stan, but for me it took close to 2 years. He never forced me or he never doubted that we will buy a house or not in our Year plus journey for home buying. Stan, Very Cool about him is that we are particular about directions of the House/Stove in Kitchen/Master Bed Room, when we send couple of lists what we like from his morning MLS Email, he always visiting every property before he schedule showing and confirming to me whether that works for us or not, He was very much my advocate in the buying process and always had me and my family's best interest at heart. I really can't say enough good things about him. Renee is always on top of everything, I never had trouble if Stan was on short vacation she helped me with information updates and showing, answered all my questions before me even having to ask....wow. I will be recommending EVERYONE to go with Stan & Renee, no need to look at anyone else...this is the agent you need to go with for a wonderful home buying/selling experience in and around LA and Ventura county. Time we worked with Stan was close to Two years." Kishore Chidipudi Home Buyer
Stan was positive, and enthusiastic about representing us
"Stan was positive and enthusiastic about representing us" "We had made a series of offers over the last three years, and had worked with a number of different realtors, without success. In general, we did not have a good experience. We felt Stan and Renee not only demonstrated their knowledge of the market but worked hard to enable us to purchase a difficult bank owned property. Stan was positive and enthusiastic about representing us. Both Stan and Renee LISTENED to what our concerns were and responded appropriately." - Brett and Cheryl - Home Buyer
Renee always did what was in our best interest...
"We highly recommend her to anyone!!" "Renee was awesome!!! We closed on a short sale and both the seller and the seller's agent were extremely unprofessional and difficult to deal with but Renee always did what was in our best interest and maintained her professionalism and got us our house. We highly recommend her to anyone!!" - Jayme and Andy Brooks - Home Buyer
You both have been so kind and honest
"I do not think this would be possible without you being as quick and diligent as you are." "I wanted to thank you both so much for everything you have done for Steve and I. You absolutely went above and beyond in every way possible. You ended up getting us in our number one choice of house even though it did not seem the easiest to obtain. I do not think this would be possible without you being as quick and diligent as you are. Thank you for making this process so easy for us. You will be in our thoughts everyday we are enjoying our new home. You both have been so kind and honest that I cannot express how grateful we both are. We look forward to working with you again in the future; As well as spreading the news to everyone we know about our great experience. Thank you!!!" ~ Jessica "The best experience ever! Stan and Renee kept me up to date all of the way. They were determined to get the house I wanted even if that meant a few hurdles. They are professional, kind, honest, and diligent. They were able to save me a lot of money in fees and miscellaneous expenses due to their extensive knowledge of the home purchasing process." - Steve and Jessica Hayes - Home Buyer

Stan and Renee were always available...
"Stan and Renee were always available to answer questions and support us." "Stan and Renee were always available to answer questions and support us.

Stan is at once savvy and down-to-Earth, sharp, yet respectful, a straight shooter
"Stan is at once savvy and down-to-Earth, sharp, yet respectful, a straight shooter..." "We had a very positive experience with Stan and his entire team, of which Renee, his wife and partner and a real estate agent in her own right, played a big part. It was like having 2 agents working full time for us. The Rector team kept everything moving forward in a timely manner, while being understanding of our busy schedules and always making us feel they were truly working for us. Can't stress enough how this contrasts with previous experiences we've had with other agents, everything from being badgered relentlessly to fill out endless forms, regardless of their importance, to hapless agents who could only close on a house if no one else wanted it. Stan is at once savvy and down-to-Earth, sharp, yet respectful, a straight shooter who simply tells you the way it is and lets you analyze the situation without coloring it to motivate you to his best interests. Stan genuinely looks out for his clients, absorbing the stresses of the "game" of buying and selling real estate, allowing you to make the best decisions possible so you can enjoy your home-buying process." - Alan and Jennifer - Home Buyer
Complete professionals and with us, every step of the way
"Complete professionals and with us, every step of the way" "Complete professionals and with us every step of the way. Ethical, available, and so knowledgeable! Great people too! Definitely, will use and recommend Stan and Renee to everyone we know searching for the best realtors out there. We sold in weeks! Almost painless." - Annie and Typhanie Kinder - Home Seller
Renee was great!
"She stayed positive and made sure that we were always aware of what was taking place..." "Renee was great! The process was long on a short sale, but she stayed positive and made sure that we were always aware of what was taking place and were pleased in the end. I would highly recommend her as an agent." - Amanda and Brett Griswold - Home Buyer
You guys are stuck with me
You guys are stuck with me for as long as I remain in the United States... in other words I will bother you for the rest of your lives. "I didn't have any prior experience in home buying and when I started browsing through the listings, the first name that came up is Stan. Since most of my friends call me Stan, I checked out your reviews and the rest is history! :) The biggest thing that any first time (clueless) home buyer wants is someone to help him understand what he is looking for. I got that guidance, help and advice from you guys. You helped me understand what to look for, what to avoid, and finally find a home that suits me the best. Your service and your mentality to go the extra mile is exceptional! I don't have any benchmarks to compare against, but I don't think I would have received anything better from anyone else. Your willingness to do the extra bit to cater to my needs, give advice on things that I have no clue about makes you guys Awesome, Awesome, Awesome and able to handle pretty much any person or situation. You guys are stuck with me for as long as I remain in the United States... in other words, I will bother you for the rest of your lives. THANK YOU. Like I said before, I don't have any benchmarks to compare against, but from what I have understood from my friends, I wouldn't have received anything better had I gone with a different Realtor! THANK YOU!" - Vibin Stanley - Home Buyer
Renee's marketing strategy was right on
"In these extraordinary times we really need extraordinary solutions.....and Renee has certainly provided that" "I have just completed my second short sale with Renee and I must say that again it has been an experience that has exceeded expectations. In these extraordinary times we really need extraordinary solutions.....and Renee has certainly provided that! End-to-end, Renee has stepped us through the process that is ever changing, but she did not miss a beat. The result speaks for itself......we received three offers in three days after going on the market with one being $10,000 higher than our asking price. Renee's marketing strategy was right on the money......no pun intended! And then there were the "Banks".......oh how we love dealing with the banks! Well, Renee knows her banks and got us through all the red tape very smoothly. Renee was also able to successfully achieve our key objective, which was to have no money owed or paid in the end, which gave me a big relief. Although Renee provided great service and was able to achieve our financial goal, there was one other item of value that came out of the experience. During the decision process in reviewing the multiple offers, Renee recommended that the one buyer may be better from all the others was the one that wanted to buy "a home".....not just a house. The other buyers seemed to be looking more for a bargain and could potentially back out should a better deal come into play. It is not uncommon for buyers to get impatient during the short sale process and go else where. So, long story short......no pun intended.......Renee was right on the money again and those buyers hung in there and got their home. So, this is certainly something that I will remember the next time I am in the market to buy a home is to be sincere about your intent and that there are "people" on the other side of the fence....not just the numbers!" - Steve and Dolores Pickei - Home Seller
Renee is FANTASTIC!
"With her guidance and area knowledge, we quickly found the right property for our family" "Renee is FANTASTIC! She quickly assessed our needs and steered us towards the properties that were best suited for us. With her guidance and area knowledge, we quickly found the right property for our family. We highly recommend Renee!" - Susan Racimora - Home Buyer
Stan was great at keeping us calm
"He was very honest and helpful by pointing out things we wouldn't have noticed like cracks that could point to foundation issues..." "Stan and Renee Rector were amazing to work with. They made the house buying experience much better and less stressful than I ever thought it could be. I primarily dealt with Stan. He was great at bringing us the exact kind of houses we were looking for. He is very knowledgeable about possible issues with houses built during certain years and in certain areas. While my wife and I were walking around with stars in our eyes planning the layout of the house, Stan would walk around and actually gather useful information. He was very honest and helpful by pointing out things we wouldn't have noticed like cracks that could point to foundation issues or signs of repairs that could point to other possible issues the house had. With Stan's experience, he was able to point out features on houses and locations that ruled out some and made us more interested in others that we wouldn't have originally considered. I felt very comfortable and never once pressured. He could spend the whole day looking at houses with us and was not the least bit disappointed if we didn't see any we liked. He didn't want to just sell us a house, he wanted to help us find the house that best fit us. While we were looking, there weren't many houses available. If we were doing this alone or possibly with another Realtor I might have panicked or felt pressured to make an offer on whatever was currently available. Stan was great at keeping us calm and telling us to just wait it out until the right house comes along. As soon as the right house came along, he called me, we went out to see it, and had an offer submitted within hours. We now own the house and couldn't be happier. The work Stan and Renee did was invaluable and I couldn't have imagined doing this without them." - Mitch and Jacalyn Dexter - Home Buyer
The marketing genius of both did such a superb job
"The marketing genius of both did such a superb job they had offers on the house in the first week " "LEGENDARY CHAMPIONS...Standing out to be recognized: After confiding in several different Realtors over a period of approximately three months, it is with conviction and sincere appreciation both Janelle and I endorse Stan and Renee Rector independent entrepreneurs of Troop Real Estate as a true friendship. These two professional Realtors took the initiative to lead us through the sale of our home. They both focused on our well being as clients and not just some other commission pay check. Without their wisdom in the real estate market our finances would have been compromised. The marketing genius of both did such a superb job they had offers on the house in the first week and closed the sale in three weeks. They negotiated and coordinated all the details and helped us understand each step of the process. I am sure you would all agree that selling your home can be an emotional experience. Stan and Renee gave us encouragement, comfort and followed through on every detail. Thank you for your service, Sincerely, your trusted friends, - Frank & Janelle - Home Seller
Be mindful that not all Realtors....
"We appreciate your integrity and honesty in an industry that is sometimes elusive and difficult to comprehend or cope with" "Buying a home is a long process, you and the people that you have working with you throughout the process must mesh. We had worked with someone for a short period of time and that was not comfortable. We have very busy schedules and we needed someone whose was flexible enough to work within our schedule, when we called you, (via a referral from a friend) we found that you always made time for us and you were very responsive to our hectic schedules. Hence a relationship was born. We appreciate your integrity and honesty in an industry that is sometimes elusive and difficult to comprehend or cope with. The one thing that stood out the most from working with you is that not all agents are created equal. You don't push to just make a sale, you are sincerely concerned that we find the right home for us. You know how to work with people who are meticulous in their purchase and need to go through their own internal process before making a decision, and we appreciate that the most. If you were to take away anything from our experience in working together, 'Be mindful that not all Realtors have the level of integrity that you do." - Tarek and Jeannetta - Home Buyer
Stan and Renee will give you first class service
"Stan and Renee will give you first class service and make sure your property gets maximum exposure." "If you are serious about selling your house fast look no further. Stan and Renee will give you first class service and make sure your property gets maximum exposure. This goes way beyond just listing the property on the MLS. I can strongly recommend using Stan and Renee!" - Thomas Gluckman - Home Seller
Renee will be sure to educate you if that is what you need.
"Regardless if you are a first timer or have more experience, Renee will be sure to educate you if that is what you need..." "It is a pleasure, an honor actually to tell of my buying experience with you and the Rector Team. I have had a bit of experience buying and selling real estate so am very attuned to agents that do not know what they are talking about or are full of hot air. Renee is both very knowledgeable and NEVER speaks to items she is not 100% certain of. I work in sales and appreciate that you need to do a little confirming research from time to time, that shows Renee's credibility to me. So I continue to work with Renee because she works very hard, looks at the details even when I do not and I fully trust that she will do the best to match my interest and I can trust her completely. Regardless if you are a first timer or have more experience, Renee will be sure to educate you if that is what you need or just give the information you want if you have experience, in other words she adapts to your style and needs. I have worked with other agents that have little interest in the way I like to work, take my tight schedule into consideration and do not stay on top of the the process, Renee is the complete opposite. I have purchased bank owned, short sales and traditional sales, each unique in their requirements and process, all went as expected and any special lender, seller, bank... request where always handle and all transactions were completed. I can be very hard to get work with as my profession keeps me very busy, but Renee makes sure to coordinate at times most convenient to my schedule. I have to say that a couple of the little things you don't think of, such as getting your utilities turned on or transferred are a nuisance, her team reminds you with a contact list that gives you everything you need, super helpful. I would recommend Renee to anyone who is needing a thorough, honest, hardworking and committed real estate professional, which in fact I have over a dozen times! If you have a need to buy or sell a property and have the opportunity to work with Renee, don't pass it up, she has been blessing to me, my family and many good friends." - Steve Foy - Home Buyer
They were there for me through the whole process
"They were there for me through the whole process" "Stan & Renee are the best. They were there for me through the whole process. If I had a question, they had an answer. If I felt confused or lost with the situation, they made me understand and relaxed. But most of all when I called they would answer and if they couldn't answer they would always call me back. The communication was perfect and the time it took from the day we saw this house until the day we got to move in was perfect. If anyone is looking for a happy face to help you find your new home. Stan & Renee are the ones to call." - Mark Swarts - Home Buyer
Boom, the offer got accepted...
"During our first conversation, I got the impression and confidence that he is going to work in my interests and will help us find the right home" "We were looking to buy a house in and around the Simi Valley area and were in the search of realtors who can best work in my and my family's interests. A good friend of mine (who purchased an independent home in Simi a year ago with the help of Stan) referred Stan to me. I called Stan and during our first conversation, I got the impression and confidence that he is going to work in my interests and will help us find the right home in our budget. We started touring homes. Stan always worked on our schedules for the showings. Stan is very reachable on emails and phones. He promptly responded to all our communications. After a few tours, Stan completely understood what exactly we were looking for and what's that that would make us happy. He always gave his best suggestions and recommendations if ever we got confused with the options that were available in the market. One time, I requested him to check a home on my behalf (I was out of town). After he checked the home, instead of saying "yeah, that's a great home, you might wanna write an offer", this is what he said - "the rooms are small and there is no good lighting or ventilation in the home". That shows his honesty and how greatly he respects his clients' interests and keeps them at heart. Tours were always fun! When we go for a home tour, when Stan had toured and checked the home, he even helped us by taking care of and entertaining our kid while we focus on touring the home. That made the tours always fun and enjoyable! Who else would take care of your kids??!! When Stan is not available, Renee jumps onto the things and will take care of our needs. So, you never have to put your stuff on hold. It’s like two highly experienced realtors helping you out. When we feel like "Oh boy! It's getting frustrated in this crazy market!", he always encourages us by saying - "Don't worry! There is one for you! I don't give up until I find that one!" He never pushed or pressured us to buy "something". He was always aligned with our interests. He studies the market all the time and kept us updated on the trend. I, being a first time home buyer, he takes his time to explain every step of the way. If you don't understand, you can ask one thousand times, he will explain with the same attitude that he explained the very first time. :) One day we found the one that we have been waiting for, immediately we went to his office and wrote an offer. He provided his valuable suggestions and made the offer look better. Within a few hours, the offer got submitted. Boom, the offer got accepted in two days. Since then the whole process went very smooth. He answered all our questions and helped throughout the transaction to make it as smooth as it can be. Having so much expertise in the real estate market and being highly knowledgeable of the whole process, his skill set helped us to get there. Overall, it was a great and pleasant experience working with Stan and Renee! I always feel that I had the best realtors on my side. Without a second thought, Stan and Renee are my realtors for any of my future real estate needs. I highly recommend their services to everyone for buying or selling your real estate." - Naresh Dodda - Home Buyer
Dude, You had me at “How can I help”
"Dude, You had me at “How can I help” "A number of months have passed since the sale of my Moorpark home was completed and I cannot let any more time go by without sending you a sincere “Thank You” for all that you and the Rector and Associates team have done to make this sale smooth and painless. I cannot imagine that it is ever easy to part with a home. My condo was a huge part of who I am. It was my first real purchase as a single adult. It was my project, my passion and my “Barbie Dream House”. After 9 years of ownership, a new marriage and family it was time to consider selling. I had been using it as a rental and it had grown a little dated and shabby. You came in and gave only constructive ideas on how I could improve the condo in order to make it more appealing to buyers. You never pushed and gave me ample time to consider all of my options. I had other opportunities for agents to represent my home. One of them was a dear friend who is also quite successful in the real estate market, but after I saw your marketing collateral, met with you face to face and sensed your enthusiasm for the work that you do, I was sold. Dude, You had me at “How can I help”. You made certain to enlighten me about the probable pitfalls of being a seller and made me aware, in a gentle manner that there may be some heartache. I am thankful for this information, even if I didn’t have to experience the pain that could have been. Thank you once again for making my transition from homeowner to “homeless” (haha) smoother than I could have ever imagined. YOU ROCK!!! XOXO" - Rachel Gluckman - Home Seller
He shouldered the burden
"...very helpful about the pricing of the property and handling everything..." "Stan was very knowledgeable about the real estate process, very helpful about the pricing of the property and handling everything for us. He shouldered the burden do we had no hiccups with being out of state. He and Renee are AWESOME" - Jim and Anita Milner - Home Seller
She was never once late for any of our appointments.
"We think that her way of wisely advising us on how to put out our own offer prices makes Renee a responsible and valuable agent." "We first found Renee online. Every time we became interested in a house, Renee provided us with the price range of that particular house’s surrounding area. These price ranges included the price and average for the selling price, pending price, and sold price of each house. From all of these statistical data, we found the suggestion price reasonable. She is a very professional agent and we trust her. Starting from the beginning of this year, the house market became crazier and crazier. We were aware that some agents were encouraging their customers to add 20-30% to the asking price when they put in an offer. Renee didn’t do it that way. Truthfully, if our offer is much higher than the actual asking price it would be easier for us to obtain the house and Renee would finish the deal that much quickly. However, the higher price not only means we would need to pay more but also that it would push the marker even more until it finally crashes. We think that her way of wisely advising us on how to put out our own offer prices makes Renee a responsible and valuable agent. In addition, she replied to our questions and requests immediately. She was never once late for any of our appointments. During the six months we worked with her, we have seen ten to twenty houses, sent countless offers, and have been both refused and accepted in our offers. Renee has educated us using her knowledge on real estate and we have learned tremendously from her. During our house inspection, Renee was there for us constantly. She discussed the house designs and asked the right questions for us. Again, the information she obtained is a truly valuable asset. We are so lucky to have met Renee!" Grace Ye Home BuyerGrace Ye
When he says things will get done they get done.
"He’s easy to talk to and is always willing to explain anything that we didn't understand" "This is the second time my wife and I have used Stan and Renee for a real estate transaction. We bought our first home with them in 2009 and were blown away with the service we received. We enjoyed working with them so much it was a no-brainer for us to use them again to sell our house this year when we decided to move out of state. The level of service was exceptional, just as it was when we bought our house. We primarily worked with Stan again and the following are some of the reasons that we would recommend “Team Rector” for anyone looking to buy or sell a house: Personality. Stan always shows up with a positive and engaging attitude no matter what the situation. He’s easy to talk to and is always willing to explain anything that we didn’t understand. Dedication. It’s always obvious that this is not just a “job” for Stan. His passion for real estate and helping people through the process always shines through. Work ethic. Stan is a flat out work horse. When he says things will get done they get done. Honesty. Stan is the most honest professional we have ever come across. If there is any possibility of any hiccups in the transaction he is upfront and honest about what expectations you should have moving forward. Knowledge. Both Stan and Renee’s experience is clearly evident whenever they are talking about real estate. Their experience speaks for itself and we were always confident that they were up on current trends with the market in order to properly price and sell our house quickly! Overall, using Stan and Renee as real estate professionals was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Buying or selling a house can be very stressful for some people. But throughout our process in both transactions we ALWAYS had 100% confidence that things were getting taken care of, getting taken care of properly, and getting taken care of on time. They make the process as easy as possible for you so you don’t have to worry about anything! Peace of mind like that is hard to come by but with Stan and Renee it is simply the standard. We would highly recommend Stan and Renee to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Not only because of their stellar professionalism but because they are wonderful human beings who truly care about, as they say, “helping you get to where you are to where you want to be!” Jeff and Megan Halbleib Home SellerJeff and Megan Halbleib
Their services from step A through Z of the process was high quality.
"Their services from step A through Z of the process was high quality" "I would highly recommend Stan and Renee to anyone and everyone. Their services from step A through Z of the process was high quality. Our buying experience had many ups and downs along the way but their care and expertise in handling all situations was top notch." - Chris and Ariana - Home Buyer
They will be by your side all the way
"Stan never let us give up and went above and beyond, keeping in touch with us constantly." "We recently purchased our first home. I must say it was a smooth process once the ball got rolling. This great home buying experience is all because we were introduced to Stan Rector. Stan and his great team at Troop Real Estate really show that they have a passion for helping people get what they want. We decided to go with them because our agent Stan, never let us give up and went above and beyond, keeping in touch with us constantly. Stan made several trips out to our neck of the woods to do showings. Those are the type of things that were important to us and made them stand out. They will be by your side all the way through the process and they were so awesome to give us a welcome home gift basket with everything you can imagine you might need during move in time. Such a personal touch. I would definitely recommend Stan and his team to anyone looking to buy/sell homes. They also referred us to a great broker to assist with the lending part of it." - Art and Suzanne Mendez Home Buyer
Would use them again in a heart beat.
"Stan and Renee were wonderful to work with and always kept us informed if we had any questions regarding our home purchase process. Would use them again in a heart beat." - Marty and Susan Home - Buyer
The service we received was EXCELLENT!
"we learned how important it is to have the right people on your side and working for you" "The service we received was EXCELLENT! There were several challenges and you met and were successful with all of them. We were surprised at how many challenges could come up and we learned how important it is to have the right people on your side and working for you. But we knew we could trust you with the largest financial transaction of our lives as the equity in our house represented a large portion of the next chapter for us... our retirement. You listened to us and always made us feel we were all a team. You always had our best interest at heart. You fought for us, stayed on top of all dealings. You made us feel we were the most important. You hosted a goodbye party for us and when it looked like we were not going to be able to move on moving day because we were out of room on the trucks, you rented a truck at your expense to make sure we got moved. Hard to put into words how grateful we are." Dave and Kris Home SellerDave and Kris
She is truly a professional, knows her business
"She is truly a professional, knows her business, and most importantly, she keeps you informed every moment through the process" "In the Fall of 2013 I decided to investigate the opportunity to sell my home in Northridge as I had not lived there in several years and it was rented, albeit managed by a great rental group. However, it appeared that the renters had left the house needing more repairs to make it ready for the next tenants than I was prepared to pay. My rental agent referred me to Renee Rector's company. On top of everything, I was not currently working in the US. I spoke to her on the phone, she investigated the current market, and it became obvious that selling would be my best bet. She did comparisons with other homes in the neighborhood and we set a price which we both approved. However, within a week, the market began to soften and prices of comparable homes began to go down substantially. I was truly in a dilemma as there was a fair amount of repair that was required, whether I sold the house or not. I became anxious. And, indeed, this is the moment that could have ruined our working relationship or strengthen it as she was the expert...I was just the person with problems..who felt out of control. People do not show you his or her true self until you work with them in crisis. Indeed, Renee managed via the output of a great deal of energy and real interest in me reaching my goals as much as possible and it paid off. A slogan which talks about getting you to where you want to be can be considered just that---a slogan. But, in Renee's case, she and her company mean it. Though I did not offer the house at the original price, it was sold with my bottom line goal met: 1) the repairs would be paid for out of proceeds, 2) Renee's fee would be covered, and 3) I would not have to 'come out of pocket' at closing. Not only did she reach my bottom-line goal, I had a few bucks left over. Renee is amazing. She is truly a professional, knows her business, and most importantly, she keeps you informed every moment through the process, seeks approval for all steps, and is a person to be relied upon. Renee is a great business woman and a great human being. You can not go wrong choosing her agency." - Betsy Singh - Home Seller

If you’re looking to buy a home,
If you’re looking to buy a home, chances are a real estate professional will be involved in the transaction. After all, 89 percent of recent buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker. And Stan and Rene Rector are the best in my opinion. -- Satisfied Buyer
They do their homework.
Stan and Renee work as a team and have other team members to help them out as well. They have great knowledge of the area and what is available. They do their homework on a house you are interested in - talks with the other realtor, location, condition, and status. They were great in negotiations they got us a great price as well as a credit larger than what we thought we could get. They have good relationships with people in various professions. We went with a mortgage lender they recommended, this helped get the loan closed on time. My husband and I highly recommend Stan and Renee RectorCathy Dalgleish

They are down to Earth
"Stan and Renee were amazing to work with. They are down to Earth, caring people who really listened to all our needs and concerns when searching for our first home. They were in constant communication with us every step of the way to make sure we understood everything that was going on. They, along with their staff, really do make an awesome team. Highly recommended!!" - Josh and Megan Valentino
I was an out of town owner who needed
"I was an out of town owner who needed contractor referrals, and construction decisions and coordination, before and during construction, before the house could even go on the market. Stan did all this, and more. Stan certainly went above and beyond the duties of a realtor. Then, as though that wasn't enough, the house was sold before the first open house. I would highly recommend Stan to anyone." - Rob Custer, Home Seller
Can't say enough about the level of thoroughness

This team of professionals is amazing.
This team of professionals is amazing. I had never sold a home before and Renee and Stan Rector made the process absolutely seamless. The office staff was also so helpful and caring. Every step of the way Renee was my Sunshine, there to hold my hand through the entire process; packing, garage sale, furniture sales and even moving day. More importantly, her caring, dedication and commitment to the process went well above and beyond anything I have ever experienced, and in the process I met a most wonderful friend. On a scale from one to ten I would rank this outstanding team a 20. If you want it done right the first time, I would definitely recommend Stan and Renee Rector, Agents at Troop Real EstateGlenda Sundstrom

"It wouldn't be possible to give Stan and Renee anything less than 5 stars
"It wouldn't be possible to give Stan and Renee anything less than 5 stars. I've worked with Renee now for 2 home purchases and 1 sale. Here is why Renee is at the top in her industry: - Knowledgeable. She knows and understands the Simi Valley and surrounding city's markets and trends. She will perform all of the research in advance, determine where the best opportunities are and present options to you. She is the only realtor I know that invests so much time in the preliminary process'. - Diligent and thorough. She knows the in's and out's of all the contractual details of complex home sales and purchases. - Excellent negotiator. She is smart, funny and very personable, but at the same time can drive difficult negotiations with positive outcomes. She understands the small details in negotiations that the average agent wouldn't and may have financial impact to their client. She fights for you and what is best for you. - Great communication. She keeps me in the loop at every step of the way. I never have to call, text or email her with a request for an update. She keeps in me in the know at all times. She manages a lot of the difficult discussions with the other party's agent so that there is little impact to her client. This makes the process of buying/selling smoother. Renee and her staff send their client emails with very specific timelines, action items and next steps. - Technologically savvy. They have a client portal website they use to communicate any new listings to you. Updates are sent out regularly. You can either reject or save those properties you are interested in. When their client has scheduled or completed showings of a home they are selling, you receive a notification of planned and completed showings. Then a questionnaire is sent to the other agent asking about a dozen questions related to the property. We can then see their response. This is a great tool to identify any issues that may cause your home to not sell for a desired price. - Extra stuff. During the period of time we were selling our home, Renee allowed us to use props, like candles and fake plants to decorate our house and fill in spaces for pictures and showings. Renee is a perfectionist when it comes to doing things right the first time and that's not a bad thing at all! If you need a referral from me, message me and I'll be happy to email/call you."Joseph Yasko
"Thank God I found Stan and Renee!"
"In my lifetime I have purchased several properties and to be honest with you most of the time I thought " Geeze, my agent made a nice commission but what did they really even do for me?” All of the properties I have purchased in the past were Bank Owned, vacant, or in a buyer's market, so they were easy deals to get done and required very little work from my agents. Flash forward to 2016 and this market is very much different than what I have had to deal with in the past and all I could say is "Thank God I found Stan and Renee!" When I was looking for homes, Stan never pressured me into buying, provided great tips and insights about the home and area we were looking in. Then when we entered escrow this is where Stan/Renee "earned" their money imo. This particular deal had all sorts of twist and turns (Even to the final hours) thanks to the seller’s agent. Stan/Renee caught some things that I am not sure I would have caught (and I am a mortgage professional and have more experience than most folks buying homes). Stan/Renee and their team were ALWAYS reachable and executed perfectly. As stressful as this particular transaction was for me, I never once felt like my 'agent" could not handle it, or they did not have my best interest in hand. Stan also has an unbelievable network of people that I ended up using (Inspectors, Insurance, Mortgage, Contractors, etc) and every one of those people were great as well (This was really beneficial as well as I have a full-time job and I don't have time to be taking bids and finding all these resources, and once you in escrow that clock is ticking and you need to move fast). I choose Stan/Renee because of the Redfin commission break, but I feel that I lucked out big time finding them as these people served me very well. I would highly recommend Stan and Renee for your real estate services, they are professional, knowledgeable, and good easy going people to deal with." ~ David Rowland-Home Buyer
They were very responsive to our questions
"Stan and Renee were excellent to work with. They were very responsive to our questions throughout our home buying experience and helped to ensure a smooth transaction overall. I would definitely recommend them without any hesitation." ~Spencer and Sara BalszSpencer and Sara Balsz
"State of the art" advertising techniques
"Exceptionally talented Real Estate agents who have mastered the art of negotiation, advertising, and communication. Stan and Renee will get you the highest price for your house with minimum effort on your part. They will decorate your house to enhance its look and they have the "state of the art" advertising techniques that get the attention of buyers. They also have a mechanism to provide buyers' feed back to help the sellers making adjustment to the house (if possible) to increase its marketability. They utilize DocuSign allowing sellers and buyers to sign documents online which is a great help for sellers who live out of state (like myself). Having Stan and Renee selling my house is one of the best investments I've made. I strongly recommend Stan and Renee as your Real Estate agents. With experience from the recent sale of my house in Simi Valley, I can assure you that they will serve you sincerely and this is the decision you will never regret." ~ Harrison Nguyen
Very responsive, thoughtful, no surprises with these two
"Very responsive, thoughtful, no surprises with these two. They let us know what to expect every step of the way. A great resource on the local area ins and outs, particularly given that we were moving from another county. Stan was even great with my very active and talkative 4-year old son." ~Donna Walker-Home Buyer Donna Walker

"Above and Beyond."
"If I could describe Stan and Renee in one phrase, it would be "above and beyond." They really do care about their clients. My husband and I mainly worked with Renee and she was caring, knowledgeable and displayed a high level of integrity throughout our home buying and home selling transactions. She has an incredible work ethic. We had a tricky situation that involved selling a condo that was in a trust, and Renee was able to help us navigate that. At the same time, she worked hard to help us find our dream home, truly taking the time to listen to our desires and concerns. She was able to coordinate the selling and buying of our homes so we closed at the same time. Throughout this entire process, she showed us that she had our best interest at heart and even took the time to make sure this transaction felt personal, not just like a business deal. Stan and Renee Rector are class acts! Without hesitation, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a real estate agent." - Iris and Jimmy VanDyke
