If you have been on the Ed Kaminsky website, you'll notice their average customer are million dollars and up homes. Imagine my dismay when my husband hired Ed and his team to sell our little 3 bedroom townhouse. What does Ed know about people like me?! Boy, did Ed prove me wrong! Ed was experienced and knew the market well. With his expertise, our townhouse was sold in less then four days and above asking price. His team of professionals knew how to market our place and took care of all the details. I felt truly spoiled by all their services. Hire Ed Kaminsky and his team, they will not disappoint.

If you are house hunting online, you've probably seen those phantom agent photos. You know the ones where you can see part of a real estate agent's arm in the bathroom mirror. Or cell phone quality image of a room. What are these people thinking! With Ed Kaminsky and his team, you get nothing but the BEST! When you hired Ed, you get a team of professionals helping you: a stagger, a marketing director, a photographer, and an escrow office to help you with all the paper work! Why settle for a one man agent. One man agents are a jack of all trades, MASTER OF NONE. Hire Ed and his team, and you get only the BEST!

Ed Lewis  

Sold in 8 days! Exceptional experience. Ed and his team took care of all the details. Very educational as we had a buyer who kept changing what he wanted. Ed kept things moving while containing the buyer.

C J.  

Ed & his team exceeded our expectations from the beginning to close. He runs a tight ship and we were super pleased - accepted an offer above asking in the first week & they helped us find a new home! Selling and finding a home is super stressful but his team was very helpful, supportive, fast on follow through and we really felt lucky to work with such a professional group!

Cat J.  

Great professional team of agents. Wonderful with follow through and availability during off hours. Designer was also excellent - we accepted an offer in less than 7 days! Go with Ed & his team, take their suggestions and you won't be disappointed. Very pleased with how everything went smoothly & worry free.

R W.  

The Kaminsky team helped us sell our house in Redondo Beach. We got 30k more than our asking price. We used the advice from their stager expert and it sold quickly with 3 buyers putting in 2 offers each. Everything went smoothly and done professionally. They even helped us with our current home and will have them help us next time. You can't go wrong.

John G.  

Ed and his team of professionals did everything that He promised and more. From start to finish Ed and his associates marketed our home to get as the largest return possible. Once the offer, that was over our asking, was accepted they closed the escrow in record time following up on every detail. I look forward to working with Ed in the future.

We listed our home with Tina & Ed earlier this year, 2015. The whole Experience was Enjoyable, Easy and StressFree. We found The Kaminsky Team Professional, Knowledgeable, Committed to Action and Follow Through. Their Markerting Execution is Remarkable and unlike any other Realtor/Team in their field. We could not have been more HAppy with choosing The Kaminsky Team. We Thank them for doing what they said they would do. We highly recommend The Kaminsky Team!

Joan S.  

Working with Tina was an absolute pleasure. She is very well informed in all areas of the real estate areas. Katie was a point of contact when we needed help. We are very well satisfied and hope that you consider our review of choosing your real estate needs to be the Ed Kaminsky real estate team.

Judy H.  

We were very happy with Ed Kaminsky and his team. Carmen Galzerano was our agent and she worked hard for us. She is professional, friendly, and eager. She made us feel extremely comfortable with the process of buying our first home together. We loved working with her.

S Z.  

We really had a very good experience with Ed Kaminsky and his team. They sold our house in three days after half year on the market with another agent company. We got 5 offers even before our first open house. They provided very good customer communication and followup services. They are very professional. The lady in their team who sold our house contacted us almost every day and updated us status of everything.

M K.  

Ed Kaminsky and his team are wonderful. They are very professional and knowledgeable in the real estate business. We've used them in selling and leasing our properties. He sold our property within a week and made the process seamlessly. We will used them again if we ever need to buy or sell!

Lynne G.  

We have moved 13 times into different areas across the United States with 7 of those moves in California. Obviously, we used many different real estate agents and companies. I must say that we have never had a better one than Ed Kaminsky. He not only got over the market price for our Manhattan Beach home in less than a week, but did it with finesse. Every aspect of our business with him far surpassed anyone else we have used. In addition, we moved out of the area and Ed not only gave us continuous advice but referred us to an agent in our area and even followed up with us to see how we made out. You can't ask for more! Ed Kaminksy and his staff should be cloned!!!!!

P C.  

Ed Kaminsky sold my house in one month - after being in the market for one year under another realtor company. He has an incredible team of people with him. If you are serious about selling your house then engage him. It was a life changer for me. Very happy.

J R.  

Ed Kaminsky Real Estate helped us sell our home in Manhattan Beach while we were living in Texas. I am still SHOCKED about how much stress they handled on our behalf. From docu sign to their local connections to uncomfortable negotiations, they had our back every step of the way. Every little obstacle that popped up, they just knocked them down one by one. There were probably 25 times during the process that my wife or I would say, "I'm sure glad we have Ed on our side."

L K.  

Tina and Ed were very helpful in selling our home. While selling a house in the desirable city of Manhattan Beach, CA is not difficult, the marketing and details they included made them a cut above the rest. I would recommend them.

We have been working with Carmen and Tina from Kaminsky group to sell our SFH in PV. The property was selling through my relocation company and Tina is qualified as a relocation selling agent. A few months before we worked with them, we had been with a local agent referred by my relo for entirely 6 months with only 2 low ball offers. Initially, when Carmen approached to us to discuss the selling, we didn't have a high expectation that it can be sold soon, as it was late-winter and early spring. However, since all of us had left LA already, it would not hurt to let her had a try. As well, Carmen promised to take a good care of the empty home. So, we signed a only 9-weeks contract to have them list it on market--a little price cut but still within our acceptable range. Surprisingly, within four days, we received four offers, two of them are very close the listing price. Tina asked for a second round counter offers, and we ended up with an all-cash offer at listing price. After 30 days, I received final payment from my relo, and the sale was closed with buyer on 35th day. In general, I feel that this team is very aggressive. they are working 100% time and efforts on this business, they do staging, photos, advertisements and open house with their full hearts, they treats real estate as their profession and career. They are not sitting there waiting for offers, but try to pursue each potential customer they found. Secondly, during the closing process, I feel they stand closely with us on inspection, repairing and relo documents. We felt being strongly supported even though we are out of town. they took care a lot of things in negotiations to ensure a smooth closing. Finally, Carmen is very responsive, she texted back my message usually within 5 mins, very polite and professional. We strongly recommend this team without and reservation!!!

The entire Ed Kaminsky Real Estate Team knows what they're doing from beginning to end. Everyone in the office was very helpful and explained in detail the answers to any questions I had. They have set a new standard for knowledge and experience in their field. When you want to sell your house call them and then start packing!!!

Barbara L.  

I had a Hermosa Beach Home that was up for sale for 5 months in 2014. It had a fantastic 180 degree view and in tip top shape. We had several people look at the house but could not even get an offer from the previous realtor. After meeting with Tina & Ed, we signed documents, and arranged to have the home "staged". As it worked out, the house was SOLD for the amount we asked long before we could even get it staged. The Ed and Tina Team cannot be beat! They are very experienced, and very easy to work with. Don't waste time going with another Realtor; go with the best from the start.

Pamela S.  

The only thing we regret, regarding Ed and his team, is that we have not 'Yelped' them sooner! Ed and his team did an amazing job selling our family home in Palos Verdes Estates in 20 days on the 'Prestigious Paseo Del Mar!' We cannot begin to say how much we appreciated all that Ed and his team has done for our family. Our situation was a very complicated and unusual one and we know that it tested all of Ed's patience. We interviewed numerous of realtors before we decided to use Ed and his team and they definitely amounted up to our expectations and then some. Ed was very very professional, knowledgeable, smart, pleasant and yet he was very personable. Whenever we needed to reach Ed or someone on his team we would always receive an immediate call back. Thank you Ed, Michelle, Katie, Carmen, and Jennifer and anyone else involved in the selling of our home. You guys will always have a special place in our hearts!

Greg W.  

Ed, Tina and the whole team do an amazing job. They helped us sell our current home, and buy the new home, and they made everything easy and seamless. They are great people to have on your side, and I'd highly recommend them for whatever you need.

Jessica F.  

Ed and his team did an above and beyond job helping us buy our first home. Not knowing what to expect as a first time home buyer, the team at Ed's office guided us through the process every step of the way. Very responsive to every question we had. Our sale ended up being complicated and I still can't believe the lengths Ed went to make sure we ended up in our dream home. Overall, Ed's experience and knowledge of the South Bay is unparalleled so you know your in good hands. I would highly recommend anyone in the South Bay looking to buy or sell there home to go with the team at Ed Kaminsky real estate.

Ed and his team did an above and beyond job helping us buy our first home. Not knowning what to expect as a first time home buyer, the team at Ed's office guided us through the process every step of the way. Very responsive to every question we had. Our sale ended up being complicated (short sale to foreclose to auction to purchasing the property from the investors) and I still can't believe the lengths Ed went to make sure we ended up in our dream home. Overall, Ed's experience and knowledge of the South Bay is unparalleled so you know your in good hands. I would highly recommend anyone in the South Bay looking to buy or sell there home to go with the team at Ed Kaminsky real estate.

There's good, there's better, there's a lot better and then there's the Kaminsky Team. For our Hermosa Beach rental house, we ONLY use Ed's team. They are prompt, efficient, communicative, flexible, knowledgeable and diligent. They have helped figure out how to stage the property and have assisted in deciding on renovations. They have brought us excellent tenants for many years now and are a pleasure to work with. We give them a rating of 10 (out of 10).

I spoke to Tina Kaminsky about my interested in an income property. There was not much inventory available. She continued to look until she found me a property that met my specific needs. The Kaminsky team did a great job to complete the transaction quickly and smoothly. It was a great experience overall. I would definitely recommend and use Tina again!

Lori C.  

We have bought and sold many homes in Manhattan Beach over the years. With the recent changes in the market we were especially concerned about listing with the best agent. Ed and his team exceeded our expectations in every way. Super Ed's creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism are top notch!

Liz S.  

We've used Ed twice and would highly recommend him and his team. They are professional, attentive to detail, and honest. On our last purchase, we found our dream house and needed to quickly sell our old house. The team he fielded to aid us combined with our own initiative and "elbow-grease" led to a speedy sale... above list!

Karen O.  

Ed sold me the condo 7 years ago and his office staff was so amazing that I knew when it was time to sell no one but Ed would get the listing. The market changed quite a bit and I was concerned that it could take a few months to sell especially since we were in the middle of the holiday season. But Ed and his team made selling the condo a breeze! Despite of all the December rain and the holidays he still managed to sell the beach condo in 10 days!

Samantha P.  

After trying to sell my one bedroom, ocean view condo for two years in a down economy, three friends referred me to Ed Kaminsky. I'm so glad I listened. Ed is extremely knowledgeable and genuine. His business is highly service-focused, professional and well organized. His team -- Deanna, Katie, Eric, Tina -- all make you feel that you are a top client...even though I know we were very small in comparison to the high-dollar transactions he manages. Ed's professionalism, wisdom, sound advice, strong negotiation skills and a "can do", warm spirit made a difficult sale happen! I'm grateful to him for that and I look forward to referring him to friends and working with him again in the future.
