Westlake Village is different from many other US centers in that it is a very family oriented yet a heavy business area with International companies residing within our city limits. Westlake Village is a bedroom community of Los Angeles and has a main thoroughfare of the 101 Ventura Freeway. These companies help stimulate the local, state and national economy. Firms such as Baxter, Farmers Insurance, State Farm, K-Swiss, Dole Foods and Jafra Cosmetics call Westlake Village their home. Like many upscale hamlets, Westlake Village is well served by golf courses and country clubs as well.

"Ryan not only sold my house, he had 4 offers for me. He knows the values of homes in different neighborhoods, so if you list with him, you will know that he has accurately appraised your home and will get you the best value. You won't sit on the market for months because your house is valued too high, and you won't sell too low. I felt like he had my back the whole process, not only when negotiating the offers, but during the inspection process and the move-out/move-in transition. He didn't miss a detail, he answered my phone calls and texts immediately and he followed through on everything that needed to be done. I trusted him with a lot of decisions and found him pleasant and reliable at all times."


"Ryan made our search and purchase of a new home a very pleasant experience. He went above and way beyond what is expected from a realtor. He understood our needs, was extremely knowledgeable of inventory in our target area and was always on top of any new listings as they became available."


"Ryan is a friendly person as well as professional. He delivers the promises he makes, which is quite important to me. He has a sharp memory and an extensive knowledge about the local businesses and the housing market in the Ventura County."

Quality product offerings, premium service, and innovative thinking never seem to go out of fashion.
