‟I want to express how valuable Roxanna Godinez was to my wife and I during the purchase of our downtown loft. It began when she took us to EVERY loft for sale in the downtown area… And I mean every one available! I tried doing my own research, but Roxanna already knows everything that’s for sale, or WILL BE for sale. When we finally found a place w … e wanted to call our own, we went with a lender she recommended because his rate beat any competitor I found. Also, because of his relationship with Roxanna, he approved us practically instantly. Besides her professional skills and knowledge, I must add that Roxanna makes the difficult, stressful and SCARY situation of buying a home enjoyable. Roxanna doesn’t know this, but I dropped another realtor because we felt pressured by him, and Roxanna naturally let us move forward at our own pace. She’s patient, sweet, and my wife and I both feel she truly cared about getting us in the right place, not just making a sale. I have recommended many friends to seek out Roxanna if buying or selling a place, and I will continue to do so…. Especially when we eventually sell the place we live in now!” Read More ▾

‟If you are looking to buy Downtown, you definitely want to work with Roxanna. She is an expert in the Downtown market. She understands client's needs and will find you the place you want to buy. ”
‟Roxanna Godinez is simply the best real estate agent we have met out of approximately 20 other agents we have dealt with in the Los Angeles area in recent years. Some were unscrupulous, some disinterested or "doing you a favor" and some downright dishonest. Roxanna is honest, patient, intelligent, pleasant and works hard for her clients. She k … now the market. She pays attention to what you want, not what she thinks she can sell you. We have bought three condominiums in downtown Los Angeles with her help as well as rented one of them. All of these purchases have been great deals for us and they would not have happened without her astute assistance. All were odd and difficult transactions. One was a short-sale, one unit was bulked and flipped and the building in which we were buying, had a high percentage of HOA delinquencies. Each created mortgage financing issues and required unique arrangements. Roxanna was on top of each one, finding ways to make each transaction happen. If any deal is humanly possible, Roxanna will find the way to make it work, and always with a smile. We have recommended her to others who have successfully acquired the unit they wanted. We cannot recommend her more highly.” Read More ▾
