8 Reviews for Coldwell Banker/Lake Payne
If you are looking for professionalism, authenticity and an overall knowledge of all aspects of realty; Lake Payne is who you would want to work with. I first met her at a open house in Pasadena, CA and was amazed by her presentation. The moment I walked in, she greeted me, had a one sheet about the property, healthy bites and beverages. Not only did she interact with me about my needs as well as the other potential buyers, but she asked very important questions that allowed her to get to know all of our needs. I truly appreciated the 1:1. Though I did not buy that particular property, I have referred countless couples that have bought properties and have committed to only seeking properties via her. I have remained in contact with Lake over the past year and a half, and have finally arrived at the place of purchasing; thanks to her always sending me listings and staying engaged. My opinion is Lake Payne is truly one of the best at this business. Coldwell Banker is an elite firm with an elite rep, Lake Payne! Beyond Pleased! ~Bella Washington
I met Lake while exploring open houses in the Pasadena area. New to California at that time but previous homeowners, my husband, teenage son and I were looking for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in a nice, well-kept neighborhood with a good school district. Our search spanned Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena and a few other areas. I was with my sister at the time and we walked into what I believed was my dream home. Lake was the realtor handling the open house at this home. Not only did she give a great tour of the property and discuss the neighborhood but she was knowledgeable of the market and simply a pleasure to talk to. She really took time to answer all of my questions as well as address others who visited. When things quieted down, we spoke more in-depth. Although I had met other realtors who were very nice, there was something about Lake that stood out. She really cared. I asked if she would work with my family and me in our search and was thrilled when she agreed. Lake worked very closely with me to narrow down just what we wanted in a home. As a mother, she knew the importance of being in a good school system. She traveled to where I saw listings that appealed to us and provided numerous listings for us to see. She was outstanding in her approach, dotting the "i's" and crossing the "t's." She later connected us with a great mortgage officer after we found the right home. More than a real estate agent, I now consider Lake a trusted friend. Kudos to Coldwell Banker for hiring this engaging professional.
She was a great agent and really did help us find the perfect home! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. She really listened to everything we told her and understood our vision and found it in no time at all! If anyone is looking for a smooth experience Lake is the agent for you.
Ms. Payne is a consummate professional. She listened carefully to what I wanted and went above and beyond by providing information I needed to work towards our investment goals. Ms. Payne was pleasant and courteous at every interaction. What a breath of fresh air after dealing with realtors who were very obvious that their only interest was closing as quickly as possible. In a time where clients and consumers want to be fully informed and educated about their real estate transactions, she has been a breath of fresh air; asking the right questions, as well as inviting me to question the process. I felt protected and eventually secure that our best interest is Ms. Payne's priority. You need a professional that will not just see you as a number but as a long term investment. Our company has built a relationship with an individual that has great integrity, honesty(straight shooter) and aggressive tactics to get the job done. We look forward to closing deals in the future!
Lake helped me find the perfect house for me. I always wanted a house with the million dollar view and that is very hard to find in LA if you are on a budget. Lake was never trying to sell me on a house, but worked tirelessly to find the place that was exactly right for me. Driving all over LA looking at every place that might have potential. She convinced me that the right path to take was to get a house that needed fixing, as this was the only way to get what I was looking for on my budget. The house we picked showed really poorly. It was full of stuff from the tenants and windows were blocked with cardboard etc. But we decided that it had the potential to be really great. She managed all the difficult negotiations over the place and afterwards helped me with finding the right architect and builder to turn the house I bought into my dream home, going way beyond what you would expect from a realtor. Now I wake up every morning with the view of the Hollywood sign, Griffith observatory and downtown LA.. You can not have anyone better than Lake in your corner when you are looking for that special place you have been dreaming of all your life.
Lake Payne is an exceptional agent. She puts all of her effort into making sure the buyer and/or seller is satisfied with the service she provides them. Lake Payne spends countless hours communicating with the parties and going through paperwork to make sure everything runs smoothly. She goes out of her way to get the best deal.
Lake Payne goes above and beyond the duties of a real estate agent. She has helped me find homes to lease and was always willing to make the time for viewings. It's always a pleasure to work with Lake. She pays attention to detail and that's extremely important.
Very knowledgable and helpful. Took interest in helping me find my place and went above and beyond requirements to help! Highly recommend
