Serving Buyers and sellers in Pasadena, La Canada, Altadena, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, San Marino, Alhambra, San Gabriel, South Pasadena, Arcadia and Burbank for over 20 years.
“ We exceed our clients’ expectations simply by meeting our own.”
With over 25 years of local real estate experience, Roland has been consistently recognized among the top listing and selling agents in the area.
Roland specializes in the marketing and sales of residential properties in Pasadena, Altadena, San Marino, La Cañada, Monrovia, Glendale and the greater San Gabriel Valley. His commitment to his clients and their goals, evidenced by consistent communication and follow-up, in concert with strong negotiation skills and a love of real estate and historic homes, have led to a long list of satisfied clients and a steady source of referrals and repeat business.
Roland’s background in photography, marketing and technology brings a visual flair and an exclusive advantage to his clients and the marketing materials designed to produce the best results and highest prices possible. Because Roland understands that if buyers’ hearts don’t lead the way, their wallets won’t follow.
Hey Roland, you did a fantastic job for us on Carriage House (in case I never told you), and I've been nothing but impressed since! The guy we've been dealing with up here can't hold a candle to you. I wish you could be cloned!- Travis Zubiate
Roland, now that we have settled in, we just wanted to thank you for your help with the recent sale of our home in Sierra Madre. With the stress of our cross-country move and new addition to our family, it was a great relief to know that you were taking care of the details. Just like when you helped us to buy our first home, your professionalism and personal service were invaluable. We truly appreciate that, though we are currently several thousand miles away, you still keep in touch. Of course, we continue to recommend your services to friends and family, and should we find ourselves moving back to the foothills, your office (and website!) will be our first stop. - Jim & Kristin Hoffman

“The entire experience of working with Roland, from the very first conversation to the close of escrow, was magnificent. He truly understands the importance of preserving historic homes and was always available to offer advice, be a sounding board, or help with anything we needed. Yet we never felt any pressure to make a decision we didn't feel completely comfortable with. His ethics and integrity are rock solid. We couldn't recommend him more highly.” - Jack & Bonnie Armstrong
"I always felt that Roland was well informed and certainly committed to representing my best interests. It is refreshing to know an agent so committed to serving his clients. " - Lydia H. Kennard
“Roland si a class act! This was a long-distance sale, at times needing fax communication to remote areas, and several phone numbers for accessibility to us. Thank you for your experienced leadership, thorough communication, humor, and diligence.” - Dick & Beverly Pearce
"Tammy and I are very thankful that we had you represent us in both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new house. Each day we can't help but remember all of the hard work that you put into making it all possible. Thank you! " - Sal & Tammy Fatteross
“Roland was recommended to us by our neighbor, who hired him to buy and later sell her home. Boy, that was the best recommendation we've ever gotten! Not only did Roland listen to what we needed, he gave great advice on what our home needed as far as painting, landscaping and inexpensive improvements that netted us more than we expected. This guy is the real deal!”- Bob and Dian Samm
"I am impressed with your honesty, enthusiasm and sincerity. Your perseverance and constant reassurance have been most appreciated.

“I love this guy! He's honest, creative, funny, hard-working, and--better yet--sold my home for $55,000 above list price. He kept the escrow running like clockwork and always kept me informed. Right after the sale, I took the trip of my life to Italy and wrote him postcards. I mean, when was the last time you wrote your real estate agent postcards?” - Amy Pargman
"We never felt that we were getting anything other than exceptional service from Roland. The key to his good service is his communication - he was always working on our sale. His professionalism is what it should be!" - Phillip & Camille Mitchell
"Your professional service was always clear, trustworthy and realistic. From the first meeting until we were settled into our new home, you were always available and in constant communication! Your greatest strength is your ability to be professional without being intimidating. We appreciate your assistance, guidance and friendship." - Joe Reyes & Laura Newell
"You are one of the most professional, hard working and enthusiastic persons in any field of work that we have ever met.

Keep those news letters coming and hope to do business with you again." - Kent & Terry McClun
