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!

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $2.775M in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

I bought my first home with Nick Segal twelve years ago and when I decided it was time to move on, Nick was the first person I called. This time I worked with both Nick and his partner Rick Ojeda. Working with them has been a pleasure from start to finish.

First and foremost they are both great people, for whom honesty and integrity is the foundation of their business philosophy. Buying and selling homes is difficult enough without all of the cutthroat shenanigans that often go with it. I really appreciate Nick and Rick's clear, honest, simple but firm, no nonsense approach. They have been operating this way for so long that their reputation of integrity precedes them, which in my experience has been a real asset.

Integrity is only one of their virtues. Both Nick and Rick are brilliant strategists and negotiators and their experience and knowledge of Los Angeles real estate and it's economic forces is superlative. They clearly love what they do, which is evident in their constant attention to detail and genuine commitment to making sure you get a home you love at the correct price with no hidden problems.

Plus they are fun and interesting people to spend all of those hours looking around properties with. All in all, I can't recommend them more highly. Ten Stars!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Crestview, Los Angeles, CA.

My wife and I relocated to Los Angeles knowing little about the city, its neighborhoods, or its wild real estate market. It wasn't long before we realized how lucky we were to have Rick as our guide. His knowledge of the area is remarkable, his business acumen is astounding, and his negotiating skills are nothing short of awesome. But even more impressive is his devotion and accessibility to his clients. I know we weren't the only ones on his roster, but he sure made us feel that way. He is one of those rare agents that cares more about the long-term happiness of his clients than he does about making a quick buck. I can't recommend him enough.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

Rick exceeded all of our expectations and made everyone else we were working with look less professional simply because of how wonderful he and his team was. We relocated from San Diego and told Rick we had 1 1/2 days to look at houses -- he and his team lined up the houses in advance, talked through choices over the phone and through the internet, and we saw over 20 houses during that two days! We fell in love with one house that was slightly out of our range and had just come on the market -- but Rick's reputation with the selling agent plus some creative thinking on all of our parts landed us with our dream house! And he kept working for us even after we thought the deal was done -- he all of a sudden got the sellers to agree to credits we never imagined we would get! His team in the office (Sham) was always responsive and also tried to come up with creative ways to solve any issues that arose. I can't say enough good things about Rick -- and the capper was that whenever we met a fellow agent at a house viewing they always told us how great an agent we had -- believe me, we know it! I hope you get a chance to work with him -- he will NOT disappoint!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.775M in Mid City West, West Hollywood, CA.

We had a very successful experience with Rick Ojeda! He and his team are extremely detailed and have an excellent work ethic. Communication is key to him and he takes every part of the process with seriousness and care. As not having had much experience in the real estate world, Rick walked us through everything step by step and made the delicate decisions of selling and buying a home very pleasant and understandable. We would definitely recommend working with him - you will be taken care of with Rick!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $9.675M in Pacific Palisades, Pacific Palisades, CA.

Selling a home that you've loved and lived in for thirty years requires more than an agent's professional skills, no matter how highly honed. It requires, we think a very high level of empathy for all the feelings that selling a piece of your life involves. Both Rick and Nick possess that level of empathy to a unique degree. I think we will always be grateful to them. Luisa and Robert
