  • When my husband and I decided to sell our dream home in the Monrovia foothills and buy another, smaller home nearby, we chose Espi Bagwell for the job. She exceeded all of our expectations and then some! She worked diligently through all phases of the transaction and we were thrilled both with the outcome of the sale and the purchase of our new home. We would recommend, and have recommended, Espi to anyone desiring to sell or purchase a home.

  • Espi went far above and beyond what any other real estate agent would have done to help me realize my goal of selling my home and purchasing another. Her tireless dedication against all odds and in a very unfavorable market was astonishing. I can never thank Espi enough for her unflagging efforts on my behalf and I truly believe there are few others who could have accomplished what she did. It is with unreserved confidence and pleasure that I can recommend Espi to anyone in need of real estate services.

    Kari M.
  • We have purchased several houses over the years including our own home, and several rental properties. Espi has always been who we have used. She has an exceptional eye for detail and is always on top of everything. She is knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate market. We have also recommended her to friends who have used her, and they too were pleased with her professionalism and results.
    We highly recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.

    Kari H.
  • We met Espi 6 years ago at a house she held open. We were thoroughly impressed with her clear and concise answers to our questions.
    She represented us until we purchased a house in Monrovia. When we sold our Monrovia house Espi again represented us. We also had her represent us on the purchase of our house in Northern California and, as usual, she did a great job.
    Her knowledge of the market, tenacity and dilligence keeps real estate deals moving forward with no loose ends. Her attention to detail sets her apart from any other realtor I’ve worked with.
    Simply put, you won’t go wrong working with Espi!

  • As an investor and homeowner, I have relied upon Espi’s expertise in the real estate business to purchase or sell 10 or more properties for me over the past 12 years. Her ability to garner top dollar for her client’s properties has amazed me repeatedly. Her “trade secret” staging techniques never fail to evoke awe in those who have had the pleasure of viewing one of her listings. Personable and articulate, her keen knowledge of the market is top drawer and I have had no need or inclination to look elsewhere for my business and personal real estate needs. I have and do highly recommend her and Amanda Arroyo for all of your real estate needs.

    Brent L.
  • I’ve known Espi for a few years as I’m a licensed real estate broker. I’ve watched Espi grow into one of the top agents in the Los Angeles area. As a broker you appreciate the little things and the big things that Espi does for her clients.

    With the help of her licensed assistant Amanda, they work together to get you the highest price and best service you can ask for. I am having Espi sell my rental property because I know she can do a better job handling the many details and my tenants than I can.

    I recently referred some family members to her and they are raving about the job she is doing staging the house with her furniture and hiring workers to prepare the house for sale.

  • When my husband and I made the decision to sell our home in Monrovia and move to Northern California, Espi provided us with a sense of comfort and trust that everything was in good hands, allowing us to focus on our move. All of the stress and uncertainties associated with leasing and selling a home were lifted off our shoulders and managed through Espi. You definitely feel as if you are an important client, as Espi puts in all the extra effort and leg work. We would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Espi to anyone, family and friends included! Espi, thank you for all your hard work!

    Lydia S.
  • I had a opportunity to briefly meet with Espi, as a perspective buyer in one of the properties. Upon her arrival, I asked her a question about the property and she quickly shut any conversations down by indicating the open house was not going start until later. I said thank you and left. Upon leaving, I returned to ask for her for a business card and found out she was inside the home. I asked one of her employees if I could have a word with her and to request a business card. He returned to tell me that she stated she was busy and she could not come. Unfortunately no business card was sent either. I thought in the initial contact, her demeanor and approach was rude and unwelcoming. As a prospective buyer and investor, it is important to establish a buyer and seller relationship. Her unwelcome demeanor had an impact on any positive relationship that could have been established with Espi and the company.

    Victoria C.
  • I was in the market for a home and I needed help. Espi Bagwell was the perfect person for me. Not only did she exhibit the skills I wanted to see, but she went above and beyond, in my book. She got answers for me on the weekends, was available and attentive, was tenacious in securing the best deal for me and was an overall delight.

    I still stay in touch with her…that is the level of care and attention she cultivates. She will always be my go to, and I recommend her to everyone.

  • I had the PLEASURE of working with Espi in both the sale of my home and my grandmother’s. I had met Espi briefly, 15 years prior, when a friend requested assistance in the purchase of a house in Monrovia. When it came time for me to sell two properties in Monrovia at the beginning of the market decline in 2008, I immediately remembered her professionalism and extensive knowledge and research she provided for my friend. Previous to hiring Espi myself, I had done my research and interviewed 4 of the top agents in the area, including Espi. Espi was my final interview and there was no comparison – she would be the agent.

    Espi went above and beyond to ensure the houses would fetch top dollar. She worked fervently and diligently in staging the homes and making sure all of the smallest details were fine tuned. She not only provided the best service one could ever hope for from an agent, but provided so much care to my new and young family, both her and her assistant – daughter Amanda Arroyo. I grew very fond of Espi and have kept in touch through the years.

    I highly recommend Espi to all in need of high quality real estate services.

    Michelle Z.
  • I have known Espi for years both personally and professionally. She is truly one of the most kind and giving person I know. She holds a very high standard for herself professionally and she abides by that standard. She has bought and sold houses for me and my clients. I will hesitate recommending her to my friends and clients because I know that she is extremely competent and professional and that my friends and clients will be in good hands represented by her. She sold my house right before the market crash in 2007. I would have been in a very bad shape if she had not staged the house in such a attractive way and got it sold at a price that is very good considering the market. I did not know that my house could look so good.

    I am quite surprised to see the hyperbole negative review about her. That is not the same person I know for all these years. Yelp is serving an important public interest purpose. However, the effectiveness of Yelp depends on the accurate and truthful review by its users. It will be quite unfortunate if someone abuse this very important forum and use it for other agenda.

    Aster C.
  • EXCELLENT she is honest with you and in the end everything Espi had told us would occur, did. Would use her and her team with all my real estate needs. Great staging whole house and does everything herself with help from Amanda and Gill.

    Pam R.
  • Espi Bagwell was my realtor 8 years ago when I bought my first home. Her encouragement and expertise helped me through the long process. Why am I writing about her now? She has continued to be “my realtor” ever since. After no contact in years I reached out to see if she would guide my son with a home purchase. She agreed and met with him immediately and spent considerable time with him. Although he decided he was not ready she has continued to be available for his calls and questions.

    During the holidays, I arrived home to find baked cookies from Espi. It was such an unexpected and touching surprise!

    There are only a handful of people that come into life and make a significant difference. Espi is one of them. She has the ability to surround you with kindness. If you are looking for a home she definitely is the person to call.

    Susan C.
  • Espi was recommended to me by my cousin who had worked with her several times.
    I could not have been more happy with having Espi sell my mothers home. From the very first contact she was up and running, getting the house in shape to be sold and working with her people to make sure things were done right. She did a tremendous job staging the house and we had offers immediately.

    Espi made the entire process very pleasant and painless.

    I highly recommend Espi and I hope I have the chance to use her and her wonderful staff in the future.

    Tim S.
  • Espi helped my husband and I buy our first home, and our experience was so positive that when our family grew and needed a bigger home, we didn’t hesitate to call her again. Every time we have bought or sold a house, Espi is the agent in whom we put our trust. She is knowledgeable, professional and trustworthy, and her positive attitude has gotten us through the doubts, fears and frustrations that can sometimes accompany the process of buying or selling a home. We whole-heartedly recommend Espi for your real estate needs!

  • It was our first time selling a home and we were preparing for an out of state move. After interviewing several agents, we chose Espi based on her experience and proven selling record. We wanted to get our house listed very quickly after choosing an agent and Espi helped us do just that without compromising on the outstanding presentation of our home. When it came to details and schedules, we were well informed and prepared for each stage. She made sure to address the areas of most concern to us. Overall, Espi’s energy was refreshing and we were impressed by her commitment to provide service tailored to our situation.

  • Espi Bagwell was highly recommended to us so we chose her to list our home for sale. She aggresively staged out home to look like a model home before we had our open house. On the first day of our open house we were flooded with people wanting to see our home. We had three offers that day and Espi was able to procure a buyer at $10,000.00 over our asking price. We were extremely happy with Espi’s professionalism, fortitude, and energy that was paramount in the sale of our home. She also spent hours with us searching for property in this area so we could build our dream home. Thanks to her we are now happily living in our house of dreams!

  • Espi has provided incredible service to my family for more than 12 years. I learned the hard way that you really need a realtor who’s got your back and looking out for your interest and the only way to achieve this was to develop a long standing relationship. Espi did such an incredible job selling my first home, I’ve kept her close by ever since, calling her each time I have wanted to buy or sell. She has provided well rounded advice and assistance with staging and repairs. She has been successful in helping me present my home to get the best price each time and extremely adept at working negotiations to get me the best price in purchasing my new homes. She has stuck by my side as my family grew up, evolved and I became an “empty nester”. Eyes on the ball at all times, Espi knows how to get you what you want, she’s very in tune with the market and makes you feel very comfortable and sure through the whole purchase/sale process. Espi has help me through a total of 5 negotiations between selling and buying. Definitely Recommended!

  • If you’re serious about selling a property, Espi Bagwell is the agent to choose. Espi has assisted us in selling two homes through her expertise and professionalism. Her product and market knowledge along with her excellent negotiation skills brought us the results we wanted. Espi has a positive and confident outlook and great marketing ideas for properties of all types. She is the only agent we have ever recommended to our friends.

  • Espi is the hardest worker you will ever meet! She is also highly ethical, extremely professional and dedicated to her clients. We recommend her with the highest of praise. She will always have your best interests in mind and will work tooth and nail to find you the house of your dreams. She is one of the best people we know!

  • Espi is the only agent I will ever work with or recommend to friends and family. She helped us buy our first house in Monrovia in 2003. We couldn’t have been luckier in finding an agent that knew the right things to say and do for first time homebuyers! As our needs changed, she was the agent that we used to sell our Monrovia house and buy our Pasadena house in 2009. Our house received multiple offers over listing price and was sold within weeks. She did an amazing job listing and staging the house. In regards to buying our new home – there is no one that is more knowledgeable and efficient than Espi. She knows her stuff and always looks out for the best interest of her clients! The best thing about her was that she never made us feel like clients, it was like having the help of a friend that you really trusted.

  • Espi went out of her way with every step of the purchase of our new house. She amazed us with her incredible real estate knowledge each time we looked at a house, and believe me, we looked at many. No detail was ever overlooked! She was like a real estate CSI investigator. Looking up house history facts, checking every legal claim. Espi stood by us through the purchase of a lengthy short sale. She negotiated details that we thought were impossible and encouraged us when our doubts brought us to an all time low. Espi exceeded professional expectations in all matters. I have already referred her to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again. We trusted her completely and she delivered!

  • Espi went far above and beyond what any other real estate agent would have done to help me realize my goal of selling my home and purchasing another. Her tireless dedication against all odds and in a very unfavorable market was astonsihing. I can never thank Espi enough for her unflagging efforts on my behalf and I truly believe there are few others who could have accomplished what she did. It is with unreserved confidence and pleasure that I recommend Espi to anyone in need of real estate services.

  • Espi has represented my firm with several purchase and sale transactions over the past ten to fifteen years. She is knowledgeable, professional, and most important reliable throughout the entire process.

  • I have known Espi for over 10 years and have been involved with her on several real estate transactions. You will not find a more dedicated, hardworking, and honest agent anywhere. Her knowledge of the San Gabriel Valley is amazing.

  • Espi Bagwell is the best agent I have ever worked with. She truly has her client’s interest as paramount and goes out of her way to serve her client in whatever the client’s needs are. She never tries to pressure anyone and gives her honest opinion. She is as knowledgeable as anyone in real estate as anyone I have known.

  • Espi Bagwell’s profound knowledge of the real estate market was absolutely invaluable. Throughout our search for a home, she proved time and again that we could not have hoped for a more ethical, aggressive, and patient advocate.

    Initially, my husband and I couldn’t decide where we wanted to live so we looked at countless properties in the San Fernando Valley and the Westside over a period of several months. Espi remained patient and energetic, never once attempting to direct us to properties that were more convenient to and/or profitable for her.

    We ultimately found the right home in a foreclosure, but the selling agent remained unresponsive. Although my husband and I gave up, Espi intuitively knew that was the home we wanted and she persisted. To our surprise, she negotiated a price well below their “last offer” and secured an allowance for repairs even though the house was offered “as is.”

    Espi’s dedication continued long after the sale was done too. When we decided to remodel our home months later, Espi drove out in the pouring rain to discuss changes designed to enhance the home’s value in the eyes of a future buyer.

    When I discuss the home-buying process with friends and relatives, it’s clear that my experience was the least stressful. I am 100% certain that’s in large part, thanks to Espi.

  • We worked with Espi over several months to find our home. Her patience, persistence, and expertise are second to none. We were full of questions, which she was willing and able to answer. She put in plenty of extra time and effort to make sure that we were comfortable with the entire process. In Espi, you will not find an agent looking to do the bare minimum; she has real enthusiasm for real estate, and for helping people find the right home. We recommend her with no reservations!

  • Espi has closed 4 transactions for us, with the most recent being the sale of our house in Bradbury. She worked relentless long hours over the holidays and negotiated top dollar for the listing. The marketing flyers were of the highest quality. She brought numerous good ideas to the table and we are extremely glad we took her advice. She is an expert in her field and we’ll continue to utilize her skills for all our future real estate needs.

  • Working with Espi to sell our home was a real blessing. Her market & buyer knowledge is exceptional. She immediately knew how to stage the house to bring out all of its features. From the right mix and size of furniture for the inside and even staged in a washer and dryer and decorated the garage laundry. Her level of service is beyond compare and delivered exactly as promised. We had our offer 3 days after the first open house which culminated in a successful sale and right on schedule. She managed all aspects of the transaction. One of the best experiences ever in selling a home!

  • Espi helped us through all the steps, she staged, negotiated, and did everything she had said she would plus more. Could not have asked for a better experience

  • Espi sold our house 15 years ago in Duarte CA for 10 K more than an identical sale across the street. We have since bought and sold three houses in Texas and Kansas, but she is still by far the best agent we have ever had. I still remember her helping us transform our side patio from a storage dump to a beautiful French patio with wrought-iron tables and shaded trees. She was a master—and I’m sure still is

  • Espi Bagwell came highly recommended, and she did not disappoint! She staged our home beautifully, advertised it, and did everything possible for a successful sale. We did not have one glitch from beginning to end. I would absolutely recommend Espi to anyone!

  • Espi – YOU and your Team are amazing professionals. The selling of our home went so smoothly. Your level of knowledge and expertise and guidance were so appreciated. Your communication style, your commitment to delivering quality service, and most importantly – your honesty and ethics in business made our whole experience so wonderful.

    Michelle & Jim
  • My husband and I have purchased 6 properties and sold 4 during our marriage. We’ve worked with half a dozen realtors. Espi Bagwell is head and shoulders above the rest! She is such a smart realtor, completely on top of the market and fully engaged in getting her client the best deal. Although Espi is a great negotiator, she is also scrupulously ethical and fair. If you are looking for a forever home, planning to buy a property to renovate or read to sell, you cannot find a better representative than Espi. She understands property values and is fantastic at staging your home to maximize its appeal to buyers. She is also a wealth of information about issues that usually a home inspector would uncover. We cannot recommend her acumen highly enough

  • “We would like to congratulate you for having an employee of such high caliber as Espi Bagwell. We are certain you realize how lucky you are to have an individual with the dedication and professionalism of Espi. We called on Espi’s services when we learned we would be transferred overseas for professional reasons, leaving us with two months to sell our house and plan our move. Espi eagerly took on this challenge. Her organizational and communication skills as well as her sincere motivation to assist us made this stressful period as smooth as possible for my husband, our newborn son and me. Espi did everything in her power to not only ensure that our house received all the exposure necessary but also that our privacy with our baby was not violated. We could not have dreamed of working with a more caring and understanding person. The professionalism and human touch Espi showed in working with us exceeded our expectations. We will highly recommend Espi to our friends and hope to have the opportunity to work with her again when we return to this part of the world.”

    Patricia and Daniel Eisenberg
  • “I would like to recognize the excellent service we have been receiving from your sales agent Ms. Espi Bagwell. Her work is prompt, efficient, and she has done well beyond her normal job requirement in helping us in both buying and selling our houses.”
 Thank you,

    Sylvia Chang
  • “I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that Espi Bagwell deserves an award. After having listed my house with two other real estate agents, both veteran agents, almost ten months later I still had no offers and had had hundreds of showings. No one could seem to “sell” the house. It had all the challenges and flaws that a starter house has and them some, and a teeny, tiny lot to boot. I first met Espi at an open house she was hosting while I was listed with another agent. Espi was aware that I had another agent but went out of her way to show us the house and several others on the block on her own time with no expectation of commission or financial gain. I never forgot her kindness and polite way. When my contract ran out with my current agent, I quickly called Espi. Within 60 days she had sold the house for almost full price! Espi had done in 60 days what two seasoned agents could not do in ten months. I credit this to Espi’s hard work ethic, clever marketing plans and her charming way with people at open houses. The buyer had the unfortunate situation of poor representation. Or course Espi was there for her too and managed to walk the inexperienced agent through the writing of the offer to the close of sale. Espi was as much the buyer’s agent as mine, but kept her professional attitude. My only regret is that I did not call Espi the very first day I considered selling my house. I could have saved ten months of headaches!”

    Darin and Shirley Gowan, Monrovia, CA

  • “We are writing to let you know how much we appreciate the work done by Espi Bagwell. Espi helped us purchase our home and sell our town-home. In both cases, she was the consummate professional. In buying our new home, she learned our requirements as well as our desires in a new home. She worked with us to learn the realms of our reach for our new area, and she was very good about reviewing homes for us to minimize the number of unnecessary viewings. In many ways she made us feel as if we were her only clients when that was obviously not the case. Her negotiation skills helped us to purchase our home when there were several offers. Those skills also bought us an unexpectedly good selling price. There were many instances where Espi went well above and beyond the minimum to help us out. We would recommend her unhesitatingly to any of our friends and family.”

    Lisa Carlson and Phil Willems

  • “After having met numerous real estate agents and different loan brokers, we became discouraged with the rigors of purchasing our first home. Our luckiest day came when we stumbled upon you. As our real estate agent, you surpassed our expectations with your exceptional negotiating skills, proficiency and professionalism. From the beginning, you treated us with fairness and respect. Your patience and caring combined with superb customer service put you above all other real estate agents. You took time to clearly explain to us the complicated procedure of house buying. Never did you rush us into making harsh decisions. Your honesty and sincerity are unequivocally rare in this competitive industry. You thoroughly understood our needs and saw to it that every detail was taken care of in an efficient and timely manner; you attended the home inspection, offered advice and recommendations about interior improvements, and followed up with us after we moved into our new home to ensure that the relocation was a smooth transition. Throughout the course of the transaction, not once did you lose your zest and enthusiasm. Your humor and positive thinking along with your “can do” attitude helped us through the ebbs and flow of the whole process. We are happy and fortunate to have had you represent us. We will highly recommend you to our family and friends, and will definitely seek your services in our future home purchases.”

    Caprice Nguyen and Anita Guerrero, Pasadena, CA

  • “As a result of the interest she showed in arranging the details of our business lease, my wife and I elected to have Espi help us find a home in this area. The logistics of flying down from Northern California made our time to look at prospective homes both limited and costly. Espi made herself available at our convenience, quickly focused in on homes that suited our tastes, and went to the extra effort to photograph and email for our preview, pictures of the homes we finally selected. During the entire closing process, she showed her willingness to make the extra effort that is the difference between good service and excellent service. I would, without question, use Espi for any future sales or purchases, and it would be my pleasure to recommend her to friends.”

    Michael Irwin
  • “Espi helped us in so many ways. She worked very hard to sell our property and did things for us we would never have expected an agent to do. She kept us fully informed as well as giving us good advice on a number of matters about the property. We have bought and sold properties all over the country and she is the best agent we have ever worked with.”

Frank and Jean Strong, Fontana, CA
  • “Finding Ms. Bagwell as a Realtor was the best part of my moving experience. She went well above and beyond what a Realtor is expected to do. My transition went as smoothly and pleasantly as possible, because of her hard work and diligence. I have already recommended her to my friends, neighbors, and acquaintances. She will be the best asset a person can have in a real estate transaction. Both her promotion of my house, and the follow up to closure, was handled at the highest level of professionalism.”

    Terry Wozniak

  • I would like to recognize the excellent service we have been receiving from your sales agent Ms. Espi Bagwell. Her work is prompt, efficient, and she has done well beyond her normal job requirement in helping us in both buying and selling our houses. Thank You
