Tell Us Your Story

I am not one to write reviews, however, working with Chase and The Whitney Team warrants one for sure.

 When, at the beginning of August we were informed by our landlord that he was selling our home and that we have 60 days to move out, we were in an absolute panic.  We were frantically looking for rentals that met both our needs and our price range...and we could find nothing! At that point, I began having a nagging thought that maybe we were in a position to buy a house.  I received a referral for The Whitney Team from a good friend, and from the moment my husband and I first met with him, it was clear we were in competent hands.  Chase clearly knew what he was talking about, and answered our many, many questions with patience and understanding.  While I had shopped around for lenders, we ended up using his suggestion as he gave the best interest rate...and we realized we could fulfill our dream of being homeowners.  We were very motivated in the search process, and Chase was there with us step by step, guiding us and offering sage advice based on experience.  About a week after we started looking we had found "the one."  I knew it the moment we walked through the door.  Chase submitted our offer and guided us through the whole escrow process flawlessly. Our escrow closed on 8/31/18, and we took possession of the house a few days after... ONE MONTH after the process began.To say we were impressed with the experience is an understatement. I would highly recommend Chase and the Whitney Team to anyone who asks.  Even after we had moved in, I thought there was a problem with an outlet, and Chase came right over to test it!!!  Who does that?!?What I thought would be a difficult and stressful experience was actually not difficult at all.... It was a joy, and Chase helped our dream of being homeowners to come true.

Chase Whitney helped us find our dream home and it has been tremendous pleasure to have him lead us with our home search.

He is patient and was mindful of all our specific requirements. Communication and accessibility were big pluses. His knowledge and experience came in handy for every step of the process during the closing. We are glad we had such a competent realtor.

Vishal and Rupal M

Sheri and Guy Whitney have sold us two homes, and each time the experience was professional and smooth.

We have felt with both transactions they had our best interest at heart always and cared about us on a personal level as well as a professional level. The second sale included their son, Chase, who has obviously been trained well and handled the sale as professionally as his parents. They're a great team and we will use them for future endeavors!

Leslie Brocoff

We are so glad we chose The Whitney Team to help us sell our home!

They came as a referral from friends, and everyone we talked to had only positive things to say. Guy, Sheri and Chase worked well as a team, honest, caring and professional. We liked them immediately. From start to finish, they personally made sure that details were promptly handled and there was good advance and follow up communication. All three were very responsive to our needs and personally guided us through every step of our sales process. They advised us on modest improvements to our home that would ensure the best price and brought in reliable professionals from their network to do good work. We had a couple of things that unexpectedly needed repair and they were able to get us immediate service because of the strong relationships that they had established. When we were ready, they delivered on a strong marketing plan that showcased our home in a sellers market and negotiated several offers that came through our Open House -- we sold above list! Thank you Guy, Sheri and Chase for taking such good care of us!

What a blessing it was for me to have Sheri and Guy Whitney of First Team Real Estate as my agents in selling my house.

  Faced with an economic downturn, this team did a superb job in making the sale of my house happen.  Fastidious detail oriented, they kept me informed each step along the way in listing the house, marketing the house, and making escrow a seamless transition.  I now consider them great friends and will forever be indebted to them for their kindness and professionalism.  If you need to sell or buy a house…this is absolutely the team for you.  V. Triplett

My husband and I were looking for a home for over a year in the cypress/seal beach area and put in more than 10 offers without any success.

We were ready to give up when we decided to give another realtor a try and found Chase Whitney at an open house in Cypress. Within a month, he showed us two homes that were not yet on the market. He put in offers for us and our offers were accepted. Both the houses had exactly what we had been looking for-basically Chase understood what we were looking for, knew the market in the area like very few agents do and was incredibly professional from start to finish. He took care of all aspects of the transaction from start to finish and even when there a few road bumps during the inspection period, he connected us with excellent lenders and good repair people to fix what was needed. Mostly he was able to negotiate a solution that left all parties happy making the process pretty seamless.  I would highly recommend working with Chase Whitney and his team for all real estate matters. We are in the process of moving into our new home now and Chase even continues to help us with the little things that come up now and then as new home owners. Thanks Chase!

Doug Glassman

I highly recommend Sheri, Guy and Chase Whitney from First Team Real Estate.

When it came time to sell my parents house that they lived in for over 50 years this is who we chose. First Team Real Estate is professional, informative, supportive, friendly and made the whole transaction run smoothly.

Yvonne Montrose

Good experience.

Chase knew exactly what I was looking for; always quick to respond, and more importantly, knew his homes.

Jeannie Lee

The Whitney Team was incredible and a pleasure to work with in selling our family home of 67 years in Long Beach.

Their expert guidance on the appropriate sales price and knowledge of the local real estate market was invaluable from the moment we listed our parents home for sale. Having a Whitney Team of three meant that nothing slipped through the cracks and was not followed up on in a timely manner. They are professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I was particularly impressed with how they stepped up to assist and resolve the details and issues that usually come up at the end of escrow in regards to the termite and home inspection reports. I highly recommend their services in either selling or buying a home. You'll be glad you did!

We couldn't be more happy that we selected The Whitney Team to sell our house.

This was our first time selling and with a big move out of state they helped us feel comfortable and stay informed every step of the way! The open house event, marketing and attention to detail are amazing! We highly recommend Guy, Sheri and Chase! If we ever end up moving back to California we will definitely be calling them.

Joe and Kristy Clarke

Sheri and Guy helped me buy my first home over 10 years ago, then they helped me buy and sell homes for my parents.

Three years ago Sheri and Guy helped my husband and I find the perfect property for our growing family and most recently Sheri and Guy helped me sell that very first property I bought over 10 years ago. I only go to Guy and Sheri because they make me feel like I'm their only client, even though I know they are busy. I also know they will bend over backwards to help me get through any possible issues during the escrow process. More than anything, I trust them. They have earned my trust and my business over the years.

Imelda D.

The service was 6 star!

Sheri, Guy and Chase are a great team, and their back office support group add value. They assisted on both our sale and purchase, and our sales price and purchase offer were both spot-on. They navigated each issue that came up with the understanding and speed that only 50+ combined years of experience can provide. And they did it all with a genuine concern and pleasantness that was very calming. The service exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend them.

Mike & Mary Heil

Chase was our "go to guy" pretty much from the get go.

Sheri got the ball rolling and handed us off nicely to Chase. We had the opportunity [and pleasure] to be contacted by the entire family as our escrow went merrily on its way. You always made Joan and I feel important as clients and the atmosphere was always business like but casual in our relationship with each other. Thank you for a most pleasant experience, may you continue to prosper. John and Joan Stark

Erik Svidal

Wow what a great team to work with, Guy and his family are very attentive, responsive and supportive.

My family and I have had quite the adventure trying to find the perfect spot to call home. Guy must have shown us 30+ homes, he never showed signs of frustration and was always available at any time. The rest of the team jumped in as well during the purchase with helpful tips and great direction on what to do next. Guy was instrumental in getting us a great price. We can't thank them enough for all their efforts and time! Laura and John

Laura Brubaker

Thank you Sheri and Guy Whitney and First Team Real Estate!

for making the sale of my home a pleasant experience. My home was listed very professionally with high quality advertising material, photos, and secured showings and open houses. This gave my home a competitive edge in the market place. Sheri and Guy were very helpful in giving me guidance and recommendations, and expedited all transactions in a very efficient manner. With no inconvenience to me, they led me through the entire process making it all an EXCELLENT- 5 Star experience, and..."Everythings Coming Up Roses". I would highly recommend Sheri, Guy, and First Team Real Estate in the listing of your property.

David Boone

My husband and I just bought our first home with Chase and The Whitney Team.

I can't say enough amazing things about them! As first time homebuyers we had a lot of questions and needed to see a lot of homes and different neighborhoods/school districts before we felt confident that we had found the right home. He knew Cypress, Seal Beach, Long Beach, Garden Grove and the surrounding areas like the back of his hand. Chase was patient, enthusiastic, made sure all of our questions were answered and always let us know whenever anything hit the market that fit our needs (often we were the first to see a house!). When we found "our house" he helped us create a competitive offer that highlighted what was important to us. The offer was submitted and accepted in the blink of an eye! I felt very confident going up against multiple offers with Chase on our side. It was obvious that Chase and The Whitney Team were very knowledgeable, well-established and well-respected professionals in the real estate community. Once we were in escrow he managed every detail and anticipated and solved every problem before it even happened. He worked closely with our loan officer to ensure everyone was on the same page. One of the things that I appreciated most about Chase was that he was always available to my husband and me. All texts, calls and emails were responded to quickly, problems were solved within an hour typically and he never minded answering our many "first time homebuyer" questions. Additionally, he got to really know our family, understand our needs and became someone we genuinely enjoyed spending time with. I knew that our family was in great hands with Chase and I know we will give him a call when it is time to purchase our next home. He understood the gravity of this life decision, was swift, confident, professional and efficient in handling the process and made sure we got exactly what we wanted at the end of the day. Anyone would be in great hands with Chase and The Whitney Team and we feel so fortunate to have had them on our side!

Francie B

After having known the Whitney family for 24 years, it was easy to consider them to be our Realtors.

With such an important decision though, we still made sure we were making the right decision to sign with them. And we certainly did! We felt like they cared about us each step of the way. Their "team" approach was a HUGE bonus. I know from others the caring, personal touches weren't just because we've known them for so long... that's just how they do business. Everyone feels like their good friend. Their market expertise, the attention to detail, the fair, honest and reasonable approach gave us peace of mind all the way through. We could not have asked for a better experience. Each has their talent, and they maximize those for YOUR benefit. Three for one! Thank you Guy, Sherri, and Chase. The best TEAM!

I have worked with The Whitney Team several times to sell and purchase properties.

They are absolutely terrific and I highly recommend them. They are knowledgeable, patient, organized and very responsive throughout the entire process. Sheri kept me informed every step of the way.  Thanks to Sheri, Guy and Chase I am in a home that I absolutely love. There were multiple offers on the house and with their guidance, our offer was accepted.  Can't thank them enough!
