What Clients Are Saying

"Mercedes is amazing and great to work with!  She understands the neighborhoods of Coastal OC and helped us find our dream vacation second-home.  She even procured a renter for us so that we could have income during the off season!  Her attention to detail and commitment to her clients is first-rate.  We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!"

"My wife and I highly recommend Mercedes Shaffer and her team!  They have deep investment property knowledge that goes above and beyond the average realtor.  We've used them more than once and we wouldn't think of purchasing an income property without their comprehensive data analysis and expertise!"

Chris & Audrey Perkins

"Mercedes Shaffer and her team are extremely knowledgeable and took the time to teach us how to evaluate an income property at a very detailed level.  Thanks to their expertise, we were able to sell our rental home for top dollar, do a 1031 Exchange and purchase a triplex with no extra money down.  We now make way more money and have a sound retirement plan such that we can live off of the rental income and enjoy life!"
