Dear Fiora. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation for all your professional help throughout the past 10 years. During the course of the last few years you have advised me on home purchases in Santa Monica for investment purposes.

My first home at 714 16th St. which you negotiated a great purchase price and subsequently you found me a fantastic tenant for 3 years. After which point you advised me to sell that house and use the equity for a better house. You marketed the house and sold it within 2 weeks with a great profit. As a result of that sale, I was able to make an offer on 210 Georgina. In a multiple offer situation, with your unique way of presentation, you were able to quality me as the perfect buyer for that house. With the profits from the first sale, I was able thanks to you, to purchase this home on my favorite street in Santa Monica.

Also, for the last few years you have been an incredible source of information for the rentals of the house as well as your ideas for future remodeling.

I have been fortunate enough to have you as a trusted advisor in all matters or real estate regardless of final outcome for your monetary gain or loss.

Dear Fiora. Carey and I would like to thank you for all the real estate help you have offered us in the past several years.

Meeting you at an open house at 615 Kingman, you kept in touch with tons of information on a constant basis, which brought us to the sale of our house in Malibu. At the closing of that sale we had not yet found a new house to move into. You kept us calm, comforting and reassuring us that you would find us our perfect home. And you did it! By calling around, you found us a pocket listing on Sycamore St. in Santa Monica. We purchased and moved into that home right on time. Subsequently, you represented us in purchasing the house next door to us. In a multiple offer situation, you managed to present us as the best buyer to the seller. You also sold our house on Pacific St. in Santa Monica.

All these years you have been a dependable source of information, advised us on numerous ideas about the properties, helped us with getting a reduction on our property taxes, remodeling the house and much more.

We wish you the best of luck in your business, and would not hesitate to recommend you as our favorite realtor advisor.

When I heard the news about WSA – Ron Wynn, Steve Sawaii, and Fiora Aston, I was absolutely thrilled. I have the utmost respect and have been very fortunate to work with each of them individually for many years. They conduct their business with tremendous integrity and professionalism. I have no doubt what they bring to the industry is a lead to follow.

I wish WSA and their fabulous team all the best with their careers and this exciting partnership.

Dear Ron. You did a great job for me on the Purchase of our current home and the sale of my North of Montana condo. In addition, you exceeded my high expectations with the recent transaction on the home at 454 9th Street in Santa Monica. Over the 16 years we have worked together, you have always taken care of me and anyone I referred to you. Your knowledge, experience and responsiveness makes doing a real estate transaction both profitable and a pleasure.

Dear Steve. I wanted to write you and let you know how much Yvonne and I appreciated your hard work and expertise in both selling our house in a tough market and closing the deal on the Robson house.

You did a great job marketing our house on 34th Street, both personally and through the internet and newspaper. In a down market you generated a lot of interest; in the end you found a buyer who paid cash, and agreed to the short escrow we wanted.

In helping us find a new home in Santa Monica at the price we wanted, you showed an encyclopedic knowledge of Santa Monica. We never visited a home where you did not have some special knowledge or insight about the house, the street or the neighborhood.

Ultimately you helped us find the house we wanted at a price we could afford. It was a short sale with three lenders, an absent owner and difficult agent on the other side. Your creativity and persistence helped us fight through the many problems and issues we encountered and made the deal happen. An average agent would have moved on.

Dear Ron. We wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the extra time and care you have spent with us on a personal level to close our recent transaction. We appreciate the fact that you are very busy, but our experience with you made us feel like we were your only client.

We have had many experiences in the past to both buy and sell from you and in each case, we felt you were there for us.

Of course we know you have a gift when it comes to marketing. But what we appreciate more is the solid advice you always give us.

We know that you are very savvy when it comes to making strategic decisions. Although ultimately we make our own decisions, we value highly the suggestions you make and know they are made with our best interests in mind. We appreciate the fact that on several occasions you have recommended against a sale or purchase, knowing that is would be benefitted you in the short term. We are committed to you as a long-term client and would recommend you to anyone seeking outstanding advice and outstanding representation.

Ron Wynn is the best real estate agent we’ve ever had, hands down! We interviewed several agents, and Ron was the most genuine, straight forward and down to earth of them all. No hard sell or pressure from him. He knew his stuff, and it showed. His years of experience in negotiating with other real estate agents/buyers made a tremendous difference when it came to getting the best price for our house. Selling your home is not an easy process for all kinds of reasons. Ron was always responsive, patient and understanding. His demonstrated knowledge of the market gave us confidence and put us at ease. We trusted him, and that made all the difference.

Thirty years ago, just after Ellen moved to the city, Steve Sawaii sold me my house of the West Side. It was an easy sale but I liked him a lot and so when it was time for my partner Arnie to sell his Santa Monica townhouse, I was very happy to see Steve’s name all over town as a leading realtor in the area. We hired him.

From beginning to end – which went very quickly – Steve was perfection. He began with a professional presentation about how he approached sales, comps, etc. which convinced us to go ahead. We agreed we should move quickly to take advantage of the market. Within three days of the opening, we had three offers, including one all cash. Next came the escrow, which was quick and challenging.

Steve guided us with perfection through what to accept, what not, of the buyer’s requests. Escrow completed on time. We would recommend Steve Sawaii to absolutely anyone who was looking for a West Side realtor. Our experience couldn’t have been better. Sincerely,

Ellen DuBois and Arnold Schwartz​

Steve is the best of the best. Incredibly knowledgeable, honest, always friendly, fully of energy with great ideas and willing to go that extra mile, or 10! He helped us to find our home and later to sell it along with Andrea Pilot who is also wonderful. During both experiences I felt that we were in expert hands and truly enjoyed the ride with these hardworking, kind and easy going realtors. Regardless of our side of the deal, I always came out feeling that I got the best deal possible. I only wish I had another job to do with them! Working with Steve Sawaii is truly a pleasure. We cannot recommend him enough
