I give Sandra DePena and Pete Castro the HIGHEST recommendation for their thoroughness and thoughtfulness while helping to sell my uncle's house in the Mar Vista area. This was a very emotional time for our family and they were there for us every step of the way during the sell process. The two of them make a fantastic team and utilize the latest technology for a fully digital online experience that helps prospective buyers get a good visual representation with details for the listing as well as weekly updates and data for the sellers. Their assessment of the area was

Selling our home of 22 years was a very emotional experience. The process was unexpectedly even more challenging due to quickly changing conditions in the market and some physical discoveries with the house of which we’d been unaware. Pete stayed calm behind the wheel throughout the process. He went above and beyond addressing physical items with the house that needed resolving. He kept us informed of the process and proactively handled issues as they arose. We feel very fortunate to have sold our home for the price we ultimate obtained, which was above the asking price. Pete was a pro,

We first interacted with Pete when he was the agent representing the sellers of the house we bought. We were beyond impressed with how friendly he was and with how smooth he made the process for all parties involved. A few years later, we made the decision to relocate from the LA area and Pete was the obvious choice as our listing agent. He is the most knowledgeable agent in our area and really took the time to understand our goals, provide advice, and keep us informed throughout the process. He laid out a timeline and stuck to it.

I can't say enough how much work, patience, assistance Pete Castro did in regard to the sale of our property, which was to say the least a very unique situation with numerous obstacles, Pete was with our family every step of the way going beyond the call of duty to assist in answering the many questions perceptive buyers had regarding the possible land development of a Hollywood Hills property. Without a doubt, Pete would be our go to person for any future Real Estate Transactions in the future. Highly recommend.

Pete & Maile were both very helpful through the process of buying our new home. Any questions that we had along the way were answered quickly and precisely. The nice part of the Pete and Maile partnership is that typically one of them is always available for a quick question/answer. Another advantage working with the Castro Group is that they have lots of years of experience in the neighborhood and have built relationships with other brokers. I would highly recommend the Castro Group for your next real estate transaction.

My experience with Pete Castro and his associates was quite successful. I was appreciative of his work ethic and how he set everything in motion. There is so much uncertainty when putting ones house on the market and Pete made it easier with his organizational skills and his personal recommendations. He had the right people lined up from the cleaners to the stagers. I was impressed that from start to finish it was overall an easy journey. When I found myself calling the office and reaching his associates they were helpful and professional. Thanks again.

Pete is a real estate magician! With a whirlwind decision we went from idly looking at out of state properties to suddenly needing to sell our West LA home in a hurry. Pete set up a home estimate, a consultation with a home staging expert, photography, videography, and virtual tour capture within days of contact. He made sure we could get maximum impact within our set timeframe and with minimal preparation cost. We were show-ready and listed in a week and a half. Private showings went smoothly and were grouped together to make sure we weren’t too inconvenienced when we

Pete Castro helped me immensely with every step on the path to selling my home. From an extensive list of stager, painter and tradesmen recommendations to up-to-date knowledge of neighborhoods, comps and pricing to an absolutely boundless wellspring of energy, enthusiasm and professionalism, he was always there for us, ready with an answer or advice or a recommendation. Pete helped me buy my first home nearly twenty years ago and he helped me buy my new home two weeks ago. He also helped me sell that first home quickly at nearly 0k over asking. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with

Maile was absolutely perfect from beginning to end as our agent for buying our home. She was always on our side and it never felt like she was just trying to close a deal. We can not recommend her enough.
