I followed a handful of high producing South Bay agents on social media for a while, before I decided that Ceci and Steve were the team I would like to work with. They put out informative videos about real estate locally, and my research online proved that they were one of the most respected, professional and experienced real estate teams in the South Bay. Once we hired Watts and Associates, Matt Cox became our to go to person. He stayed in touch with us daily and informed us of every important milestone during the escrow. Matt recognized my detail-oriented personality and left no question unanswered. He was proactive and took care of every element so that there was never any confusion or problem. He is a very engaged agent, a genuine person, and a clear communicator. Everything, from the photos taken of our property, to the description written about the house, was superbly done. We benefited from Ceci’s design experience and background, Steve’s incredible negotiation skills, and Matt’s tenacity and superior work-ethic. Ultimately, Watts and Associates got our house sold for $11,000 over asking, and negotiated two months of free rent for us, while we find the perfect home, which they have already helped us find and we’re currently in escrow. Everything on this transaction has been smooth and pleasant, as well. My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to represent us. We highly recommend that before hiring an agent to sell your home or to buy your future home, you first interview Watts and Associates.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience as new home buyers than working with Matt. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the buying process and the South Bay, but conveys his expertise clearly and thoughtfully. Matt took the time to understand what we were seeking in a home and curated showings accordingly. He was patient as we navigated a challenging housing market and funding hurdles and delivered us to the home of our dreams. Most importantly, Matt’s impeccable integrity and sincerity provided invaluable reassurance that he was always looking our for our best interests. You will not be disappointed working with him!

Chris and Charlotte Traeger

Capitalizing on their local area knowledge, we utilized Ceci’s decorating expertise in suggesting and overseeing landscaping, painting, hardware floor refinishing and fixture replacement that increased the house value. Ceci and Steve also organized an Estate Sale that netted us more than we expected and left an empty house ready for workers to begin. During the whole process, we drove the 200 mile roundtrip from our house only 3-4 times. After less than a month for the upgrades we listed the house for considerably more than other Realtor’s had suggested. Their beautiful photography, and virtual staging were very well done, and resulted in two offers in less than a week. We couldn’t be happier with Ceci’s and Steve’s assistance in getting top dollar for us, doing it in and a quick and painless (to us) process. We highly recommend their services.

Barry and Patti Macnaughton

We worked with Steve and Ceci in both the sale of our existing home and purchase of a new one a few miles away. We had excellent experiences on both the sales and buying side. Steve and Ceci are extremely knowledgeable about the local market. They did a thorough inventory of our distant home and help us upgrade that home in a way that allowed us to achieve a great sales price. They also spent the time to listen and understand what we were looking for in a new home, and used that knowledge to find us a great replacement home. I highly recommend them whether you are buying or selling the Palos Verdes or South Bay area. You can’t go wrong using their services.

Julian Hollar

Matt’s one of the best I’ve ever worked with. I would recommend him to anyone. His attention to detail and care is unmatched. He comes with an amazing team that will help you strategize the best way to buy or sell your home.

Bill and Linda Lama

Matt is the consummate professional. He guided us every step of the way through the difficult process of selling our home while at the same time
finding us a new home. Through hard work a diligence Matt achieved both goals, closing both transactions within the same week, less than a month after we started the process. All the while Matt was continually cheerful and positive. My wife and I couldn’t recommend him higher.

Tim Byer

Steve and Ceci could not have been more helpful and dedicated when my sister and I sold our late parents’ home recently. Their level of expertise, commitment, and network of professionals helped us with many aspects above and beyond the normal “job description” of real estate agent. We chose wisely
