Real Estate Consultant Vs Real Estate Agent At A List Properties, YOU, the client, are always put first. First means that your goals, wants and desires come before ours. We are consultants, not regular agents. We don't have an agenda that we are trying to push, our mission is to find out what you really want and go get it for you. Our job isn't to "sell" on a house or a price, it is to give you your options, help you see things from every perspective, shed light on possibilities and things you hadn't even considered before, then line them up so you can make the best decision for you. Now we aren't completely altruistic we know that by creating enthusiastically happy clients through our Gold Star Service we create more business for ourselves in the long run.We believe Real Estate is essentially about 2 things RELATIONSHIPS and LIFESTYLE.RELATIONSHIPS In Real Estate many different people touch each transaction from start to finish. Our goal is to have those people work together insuring that your process goes as smooth as possible with the best possible outcome. That is why at Gold Star Group we are continually working on our relationships. There are several key people who we pay special attention to.You the Client, you are always our number 1 priority. The Team we have assembled an awesome group of individuals working together to ensure a smooth transaction for you from finding you the right house, to fulfilling the contract details. The team allows our experts to work where their talent and passion is, maximizing results. The Other Agents this is an area that not everyone thinks about, by proactively developing relationships with other agents, we ensure the smoothest transactions, where both sides are working together for the best possible outcome. We have found that in addition to having a high completion rate, we also get more offers accepted to start with. When the other agent has respect for your work ethic and style with all things being somewhat equal they are more likely to accept your offer in a multiple offer situation. We have also experienced that the other agents are more likely to work with us to best position our clients so they are the best offer. Other Service Providers theses are our extended team members, they work in other industries but are occasionally needed in our transactions. We have excellent Contractors, Home Inspectors, Estate Planners, CPAs, Home Furnishings, Movers and Attorneys with various specialties who are all willing to give you their highest priority and go the extra mile for you for two reasons. First we picked the best of the best those who share our philosophy of putting the client first and second of course because of our relationships with them. We like to think of them as our "extended family." LIFESTYLE Real Estate is about creating a lifestyle. For most people it is their largest financial holding, and it is also so much more. Your home is the place where you day starts and ends, therefore it is your life. We also know that it isn't just your house that has an everyday impact on your quality of life it is your neighborhood too. That is why we work on a team and call ourselves Neighborhood Experts, San Diego is just too big of an area to know every detail that affects real estate that is why our team members cover different areas ensuring superior knowledge in what ever area you choose.For Home Buyers we are looking to match them up with the best neighborhood for them, considering their lifestyle, where they are now in life and where they want to go. For Property Sellers we are finding every aspect that we can market and exploit it. We start by putting the spot light on the house and then the neighborhood from interviewing the neighbors for our 9 Things to Love About This Neighborhood, to school profiles, subdivision information and even restaurant reviews.

Testimonials for Rachell Lara & A List Properties
Rachell Lara is, in truth, the only agent I would ever trust with the most important purchase and sale I'll ever make. It is really scary and intimidating to choose the right agent when you are buying a new house or selling your old one because so many of them are not as swift and as knowledgeable as they claim to be. And because there is so much time and money that can be wasted, you don't want to make the wrong choice. She found me my dream house, even though I am the most annoyingly particular house shopper out there. And because she did such a good job of always being available for me, showing me houses that met my exact criteria, getting me in to see houses the second they became available, and helping me negotiate an affordable price that would entice the sellers: I just HAD to hire her 3.5 years later to sell my old house. Let me tell you, she is equally amazing as a seller. Her suggestions have saved me thousands of dollars and millions of headaches. Rachell Lara just makes things happen. I highly recommend her.
Rachell made my experience of purchasing my home very nice. I had endless questions and she was very prompt and professional with her answers. I would highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.
Thank you Rachell!!!
Rachell was referred to us by a neighbor friend. She was very flexible in setting up meeting times and explained everything clearly (we had a lot of questions as it was the first time we had ever sold a house!). Rachell did a great job explaining how we needed to stage the house and we had a full-price offer within 2 days of listing!! We found Rachell to be friendly, down to earth, and full of knowledge & she seems to know a lot of people! Great connections!! Rachell made the stress of selling a house MUCH less stressful! I would absolutely recommend her (and I have!) and if we move back to the San Diego area I would certainly have her help us find a new house!
Rachell is amazing at what she does! She listens to the needs of the buyer and works to find what you are looking for. She works through the whole buying process and is calm in the face of buyer anxiety and crazy questions. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a home!
