Rick Ojeda Realtor

I am one of those rare Los Angeles natives, grew up in the San Fernando Valley but over the last 14 years I have enjoyed the westside communities of Brentwood, Culver City, Santa Monica and Marina del Rey.

I have been very fortunate to have traveled the world for business and pleasure and some of my favorite places are Hong Kong, Jordan, Israel, Paris, London, Scotland and Rome. I love experiencing other cultures, seeing how other people live…and above all it reminds me how blessed my life is and how much I appreciate where I call home…Los Angeles.

Early on in my life, I loved the idea of owning real estate and the opportunities it provides. I loved it so much that I even received my degree in Real Estate from California State University, Northridge. While in college I obtained my agents license and within a year of graduating I became a real estate broker and in charge of commercial acquisitions for a firm specializing in real estate syndication. Shortly thereafter, I also realized I was a bit of an entrepreneur and eventually went on to create various patented products and developed companies in the beauty, telecommunications, retail and entertainment industries. I mention this because, it’s my universal business knowledge that has been instrumental in my past and current successes and I now apply in my working relationship with clients in real estate.

Your team was OUTSTANDING! I have never seen such a tremendous job. Like a well-oiled machine. Maybe you should consider managing the Mets!

Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $2.5M in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

Rick and Amy did a nice job navigating the complicated process of selling our home and then assisting with finding a new one on the other end. We have used Rick for 4 transactions now (buying and selling) - that says something! Realtors are a dime a dozen (no offense intended) so when you find one that works - loyalty counts!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $2.5M in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

Rick Ojeda was precisely the real estate agent we needed. Ours was more than the ordinary purchase of X home on contingency of selling Y home. Making matters even more complex, Rick represented us as buyers and sellers--and he represented the people on the home we were buying. And, there were all sorts of contingencies, the details of which I will spare you. Rick sorted it all out, and he did so with utter and complete care, patience, transparency, and professionalism. I give him the highest possible marks, and not because we always agreed on everything but precisely because we did not. How he managed those moments when we wanted to do A and he suggested B served us better than we could have possibly hoped. The short of it is you absolutely cannot go wrong with Rick; he is a real estate agent par excellence and we recommend him highly and enthusiastically. Finally, his assistant, Amy Castillo, was simply superb. She made the process of selling one house and buying another--and all within 45 days--seamless.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $850K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

This has been our second time using Rick. We first used him when we moved out to Los Angeles and needed to purchase a home fairly quickly. Him and his team stopped at nothing to ensure that we found a home that suited all of our needs. We decided to move back to San Diego and didn't hesitate to reach out to Rick again to sell our home. Honestly, we would not have used anyone else. Rick reached out to us immediately and advised us on what was needed in order to get the best price possible. Our house went on the market the first week of January and we had an offer two days after it was listed over the asking price! Rick and his team are fantastic! Rick was also able to help us find a realtor in San Diego to help us purchase our new home. We would highly recommend Rick and will definitely send anyone his way who is looking buy or sell a home in Los Angeles.

Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $775K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

WOW!! is the only way to start our review of Rick Ojeda and Amy Castillo of Pacific Union International. Rick's can-do attitude without the typical salesman cockiness was refreshing and real. We interviewed several other agents about selling our house before we met with Rick and the difference was obvious from the outset. Rick came in with a strategy that cost us almost nothing, yet we sold the house for well over the asking price in just a few weeks, while the other agents told us the only way to sell our house would be by spending thousands on redecorating and staging just to get our asking price. Rick and Amy really listened to all of our concerns and provided an incredible level of communication and customized service through the entire process. Their thoroughness, friendliness, and professionalism are amazing! If you are looking for an agent to help you sell your house, look no further than Rick Ojeda and Amy Castillo. They’re the best!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2018 for approximately $2.5M in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA.

I worked with Rick on the sale of my condo on the Wilshire Corridor. Rick had recently worked with several other people in my building and had gotten record sales prices. Rick was able to help set a price that made the unit move almost immediately (two weeks until we got two offers on our asking price). Rick and Amy from his team handled all the details, minimizing the work on my end.

I would highly recommend Rick to others out there looking for a residential real estate broker.

Bought and sold a Condo home in 2018 for approximately $1.75M in Century City, Los Angeles, CA.

I have known Rick Ojeda for six years now and can honestly say that every time I work with him he exceeds my expectations and delivers. I first met Rick when he sold my home in Encino during a divorce and he was incredibly sensitive and professional along with getting us multiple bids the first week. He then found me a lovely condo in Century City where I have been very happy and the condo's value has increased significantly. We just purchased another property together and it's always a pleasure. Rick and his team are knowledgeable, professional, detail oriented, hands-on and they take care of most everything with efficiency, ease, pleasure and patience. Rick always has his client's best interest at heart and is really strategic in his thinking about how to get your needs met. Plus, he has a great sense of humor which makes the process less stressful and more fun. I always look forward to working with Rick.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $3.175M in Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA.

I wanted to reflect and applaud the superb service that rick Ojeda, Nick Segal, Caroline Berry and their Team provided for me in the sale of my residential home. Well prior to being marketed there were many issues that needed to be handled in the home as it was rather jaded and had not gone under any form of reparation work for at least 15 years. Rick, in particular took on the responsibility for helping me arrange the builders, plumbers sewer people, roof and other vendors to give my property a major facelift. This was a great investment for me in terms of way the property was eventually sold and the price it was sold for. I was very touched by Rick’s application here spending many hours working with the vendors and coming up with proposals and talking them through with me so we can get the right price and the work done in the way it needs to be. His consistent follow up and follow through was excellent.

When it came to marketing the house, the brochure they prepared and the Caravan they organized before the house was actually listed went very positively. Rick and Caroline were also available to show people around as I was not living there and the number of times that they had to continue to go over there to make sure everything was in order, particularly when the staging was put in, and both their willingness to do what it took to get the house into a marketable position was very positive.

Rick called me whenever it was necessary to meet and talk with potential buyers and was always instrumental to helping me in the price he thought I should be negotiating with the buyer.

The property was initially two sold quite quickly within a two week period of being marketed and unfortunately the buyer dropped out of escrow days beforehand as there were issues with the property that he was not comfortable with. Rick handled this very professionally and the way he dealt with the buyer and the escrow company in this matter. Nick got more involved when we put it on market again without staging as Rick was on vacation and helped me tremendously in meeting potential buyers and talking about how we should negotiate.

Rick’s Team are a very professional operation and one that I will recommend to my major Entertainment Clients as I am a Business Manager. I want to thank them for all of their efforts, their quality service and their ability to truly follow through and get my house sold in the way that it was and my thanks will always go with them!

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $3.775M in Beverly Hills, CA.

It was a bright and clear day in mid-May when I got a text alert for an open house on S. Rodeo Dr in my beloved hometown of Beverly Hills. I was driving westbound on Olympic Blvd and was close so I decided to make a quick stop with no expectations...

I was raised and born in Beverly Hills so when I moved back to LA several years ago I got married and had my first kid and my wife and I decided to move back to my old house which my parents had been renting. However, after several years there we started to get an itch to move and put our feelers out there to take the equity we had in the house and upgrade within Beverly Hills. We weren't in any rush but had seen a number of over-priced and under kept houses which dampened our hopes a bit. We were looking for the right house and could afford to wait to find it. So when I walked through the doors of this house on Rodeo, I knew I had found it. In an instinct. I have pretty good instincts and I was sure this was the house for me and my family. After a quick run-through I bumped into the listing agent, Rick Ojeda. I've dealt with a lot of brokers and agents in my professional career so I'm kind of jaded but there was something about this guy's demeanor and presence that seemed to fit right into the feeling I got from this house. After a brief conversation with Rick I once again trusted my instincts and asked him to represent us in the deal rather than the agent we were going to use. I just had this feeling that if we played our cards right Rick could guide us through the deal. I knew I had to move very quickly... Houses like this rarely come up for sale and this was something special, so we put in an offer that night and now it was in Rick's hands...

It's been said that adversity doesn't build character... It reveals it.
Our offer got accepted and halfway through escrow we realized we had to change course with our loan broker, which meant asking for more time. The moment came where I had to tell Rick what happened and it was not a conversation I wanted to have with him. After I told him I held by breathe waiting for his response, which was "Uggghh... (long pause) OK this is our game plan". That was THE defining moment in this deal. I thought Rick could've abandoned us and went with the next buyer but he knew we were the right family for this house and trusted his instincts despite the pushback he was going to get and helped us close and he did it honestly and ethically and with great tact. A real professional and a great guy who works for a great company! Rick Ojeda and the Partner's Trust just do things the right way... an idea which seems to have been lost on us in today's real estate market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $1.7M in Tarzana, Tarzana, CA.

Great advice, from pricing to tactics. Great support from excellent photos and marketing, to professionally staffed and organized open houses, to careful and sophisticated negotiations, to professional and thorough closing. Worked in partnership with me, through the business and personal decisions of selling such an important asset and part of my life. They provide An integrated team with dedicated involvement and availability at all levels and for all aspects of the process. In an increasingly tough market, with tough buyers, they got me top dollar, excellent deal terms, and got it closed in 60 days, from initial listing to closing, when a lot of other deals in the market were falling through. I've been buying and selling real estate for decades, and this team gets my highest marks.
