Michael and Anabel are the best. They found me an off-market deal and totally took care of the transaction from start to finish. They are extremely knowledgeable about the Brea area and help at ever step of the way. If you are looking for an agent to assist in selling or buying a home they are go-to agents in the city! Thanks for the deal!

I worked with them on a transaction - I represented a buyer for a property they were selling. As a fellow real estate agent, I can honestly say that this power team was amazing to work with! They are a phenomenal team with excellent attention to detail, high levels of professionalism, and they’re very personable. Thank you Team Simpson for a wonderful transaction, and hopefully we can do business again soon.
