What Others are Saying
Buying our home with Pamela and Amanda Horton was a pure pleasure; their courtesy, focus, and professionalism is without rival in Laguna Beach. Given the number of realtors in Laguna, it is important to employ someone with a long, proven track-record. Pamela and Amanda Horton are, without question, the most experienced, successful and genuinely kind people in the business. I cannot recommend them more highly.
This was our first home purchase together, but not the first in our family. Amanda was everything we could ask for, and more. She is friendly and always available. She is punctual and organized, and helped us take care of (or took care of herself) every detail. She ended up representing the buyer and the seller, which can be a tricky position for anyone, and she handled it with aplomb. I am familiar with Laguna Beach, and Amanda's knowledge is second to none. She definitely went the extra mile to make our house happen as there were a few small issues along the way; all were handled rapidly, patiently, and completely. Amanda truly was our guide and partner in finding a home and I can't see how anyone else would be better, or even why you would work with anyone else. I am sure there are a lot of great realtors out there, but I work with people for a living, and Amanda is one of the best people I have ever worked with.
Amanda Horton represented me recently when I purchased a home in Laguna Beach. She had a good sense of what I was looking for and suggested I see this particular house. She was spot on about the house being my style and fitting my requirements. Luckily, we got an offer in before anyone else and she not only got me the house but for a good price. I hadn't purchased a house in many years so it was stressful at times, but Amanda guided me through the whole process calmly. She represented my best interest through every step. Amanda and team are great to work with and I recommend them highly!
Amanda and Pamela Horton represented me in the sale of my last home and then represented me in the purchase of my current home. They understand their markets well and they act swiftly and skillfully on both the purchase and the sale side. They are good negotiators - protective yet effective. They are also very savvy about all aspects of the contract and escrow and have provided me very sound advice along the way of buying and selling. I highly recommend them.
Amanda and Pamela are very professional to work with and yet add a friendly and personal touch that makes working with them pleasant. They are tremendously competent and rose to all the challenges that were presented in the sale of my house. They are hardworking, readily available, knowledgeable and even have a sense of humor which made the whole process more enjoyable. They went out of their way to accommodate me as an out of area seller and took on tasks that were above and beyond the call. I would use them again as well as recommend them to friends and family.
Amanda and Pamela Horton are a dynamic duo! They worked with me to sell our family home and to purchase my new home - both homes located in Laguna Beach. Their level of professionalism, knowledge of the local market and responsiveness and care made what could have been a very stressful experience, a breeze. Team Horton genuinely cares about their clients and always has their best interest at heart. They are realistic and honest and had a thorough understanding of my needs all the while being endlessly patient with this nervous client. Because of Team Horton's dedication and hard work, I am now living happily in my beautiful cottage by the sea, a gift of which I am eternally grateful!
I feel extremely lucky to have found Amanda Horton as my buying agent. She is very professional in everything she does. She listened to my wants and needs in a house and never showed me anything that didn't fit those parameters. She followed up on each house we saw. When we entered escrow she worked diligently with all parties involved and made the process as smooth as could be. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable. Even though I have real estate experience, I couldn't have done this without Amanda. I highly recommend her and will use her again when I buy or sell.
Amanda Horton listed and sold our home in Orange County. I really can't say enough good things. I have bought and sold a number of homes. This transaction was one of the more challenging transactions due to property repairs and buyer financing issues. From establishing the list price; to guiding us through real estate forms; to navigating the transaction with the buyer side, she was spot on. Throughout the entire process, Amanda was hands on, caring, and thorough making sure that no details were missed. She seems to always be working and knew everything going on in the marketplace that was relevant to our sale. In my business, I work with real estate agents daily and I was still blown away by all she did to help get our sale to the finish line.
Amanda Horton is an extraordinary agent. She went beyond the call of duty while we sold our long-term home from afar, organizing the painting, the staging, water-damage remediation, termite tenting, and bigger repairs such as the installation of new entry doors. She is a very ethical person, and I never felt pushed into anything by her. She allowed us to call the shots, even as she offered her counsel when we sought it (something we often did, given her expertise and familiarity with this market). I highly recommend her, and would absolutely work with her again.
Amanda is amazing and the most wonderful realtor I've ever had! She is patient, thorough, dedicated, and consistently exceeds high expectations. Despite the challenges related to showing my home (three pets on premise), she personally attended every single showing and every open house, making sure things went smoothly. She even followed up personally with every single showing. Now Amanda is assisting me with the purchase of another home and demonstrating the same exceptional level of service. I highly recommend her.
Amanda makes it easy to be a client, in a situation which might otherwise be quite stressful. I enlisted her help to sell my home in Laguna based on her impeccable reputation for being knowledgeable and professional, and for delivering world class service. She was upfront about what to expect from the process, and managed my expectations and those of the buyers with considerable care. As with her suggestions for staging and contractors for minor repairs, her guidance on the pricing was spot on. The high quality of the marketing materials - including the website, the brochure and the newspaper ads - showcased my home beautifully. Amanda is extremely responsive and has a way of making each client feel as if they are the only one; she extended herself far beyond what I’ve known any other realtor to do. Amanda was always available to answer questions. Amanda is proactive, thoughtful, and intuitive in her approach to her clients and to the process of buying or selling a home. She demonstrated the highest level of integrity, and I came to trust her implicitly. It was a privilege to work with and get to know Amanda Horton throughout the process of selling my home. You would be very fortunate to work with her if you are in the market in Laguna Beach.
There aren't enough words to describe how incredible Pamela and Amanda are as real estate professionals. They always return our calls quickly and help with any questions we may have. But most importantly the advice they give us is always the perfect solution. They have kept us out of potential problem situations due to their skills in real estate sales. My wife and I think they are the best real estate agents anywhere not to mention good, honest and personable ladies!
We bought our house in San Clemente during a crazy time in the housing market. Amanda made sure she got to know the seller’s agent and do as much as she possibly could to keep our offer at the top of the pile. I am so thankful for her and her team. They were miles above our last local realtor.
Our family gives Pamela Horton and Amanda Horton the highest professional and personal recommendation. They did a wonderful job working to sell our house...and an equally good job working with our family and helping us through the home selling process. Pamela and Amanda carefully walked us through potentially confusing paperwork and legal issues, and gave us valuable advice on how to make the transition into and through escrow as easy as possible.
We wanted to take the time to thank you for your outstanding customer service that you provided us during the sale of our home. From the first time that we met you through the final closing, you have made us comfortable and confident in our decision to work with you. As my husband and I work in the professional services business, I recognize those people who go above and beyond the client's expectations. You are truly one of the best realtors we have ever worked with and we would provide an unequivocal recommendation to any potential client.
