    Jason & Missy really have a great grasp on the market, conditions and what is needed to sell a home. We originally listed with another realtor for six months. This was right after interest rates started climbing in April (2022). The agent worked hard on open houses, but didn't get much traffic. After six months, we hired Jason & Missy. They showed us where they believed we (and the previous agent) were going about showing the home wrong. We signed up with them, made a few quick changes and had two offers several weeks later (November). We were totally thrilled. Their team of professionals helped work us through the process of selling a home. Towards the end of escrow, over the holidays, we knew Jason & Missy were out of town on vacation. That didn't stop them. Every time I had a question, they were right there, within an appropriate time period. Easiest people to work with ever. Totally recommend the Improta Team for any of your real estate needs.

    "We finally crawled out from under the pile of moving boxes (just don't look in the garage!) to sing the praises of Missy and team. If ten stars were an option we'd give ten.

    As first time joint buyers, our home search took place in the summer of 2022 when the market was still white hot (along with the outside air temp). We went to a couple dozen open houses on our own and Missy was somehow available (did she clone herself?) to meet us for appts at another 10ish properties all over the San Fernando Valley and into Ventura County on various days of the week, accommodating our crazy work schedules.

    We lost out on house #1 after making an offer and doing the back and forth with the seller but that ended up being a blessing in disguise when it came to house #2 (from where it is we write this note). Throughout the offer and negotiation process, Missy not only explained the minutiae and educated us on everything from A to Z, we literally referred to her as our therapist several times as she and team were able to keep us off the ledge as the documents started flowing and the nights leading up to moving day grew shorter and shorter (raise your hand if you hate packing!)

    In the end, if it weren't for Missy, Katie, Jason and team, I don't think we would've found our house, let alone made it through the entire process with our sanity intact. While we don't plan on moving again anytime soon, if it does happen, we will 100% only go with the Improta Team."

    Thank you Improta Team for your excellent guidance and professionalism throughout our home sale process! Jason and Melissa were able to secure us a full priced offer within the first week, even after the market started cooling. They kept our best interests in mind, guiding us in negotiations, scheduling repairs, checking in during the escrow process, and assisting us after the close. Their knowledge of the real estate market is second to none. From Calabasas to Westlake to Agoura Hills, we would recommend them to any of our friends and neighbors in need of a local market expert - they are the best! If you are thinking about buying or selling real estate, look no further than The Improta Team! Five stars from us!

    "My husband and I recently worked with the Improta team to purchase a home in Calabasas California. We are non nationals and we moved to Calabasas from New York with no neighbourhood knowledge, no local contacts to rely on for information and no prior experience purchasing a home in the US.

    Missy and Jason took us under their wings for the entire process from window shopping, to purchase mode and finally remodelling.

    We were initially overwhelmed by the speed of the market, the competition against all cash buyers and the amount of homes that needed a remodel. In less that 9 months we purchased a home that will meet our families future needs and we are already halfway through a remodel with contractors and trades people that Missy and Jason lined us for us even before we closed escrow. Did I mention escrow closed two weeks early?!

    What felt like a super stressful, insurmountable process flowed with easy under the guidance and direction of Missy, Jason and their team.

    No only did we have an wonderful, effective and highly efficient home purchase experience, we also found a solid friendship in Missy & Jason.

    We highly recommend the Improta team!"

    We had a fantastic experience with the Improta team for the purchase of our first home. From viewing potential homes all the way through close of escrow and beyond we felt supported and guided by an experienced team that we knew was looking out for our best interests. We bought during a super competitive time and we felt so fortunate to get the first house we put an offer on thanks to the guidance of our agent. If you're looking for an amazing team to help you with purchasing a home, look no further than the Improta Team!

    Amazing real Estate Team, extremely professional. Jason sold our house in a week at full cash price, and helped us close our dream home before all the rest could even put in an offer, and at a fair price. Jason, Katie and the Improta team were easy to work with, answered all our questions, resolved any issues quickly, and called us back in a timely manner. Communication is key in Real Estate and you can count on the Improta Team, as a high end realtor in Del Mar in the past I have certain expectations and these were met on all fronts. I would definitely use them again. Thank You Improta Team

    We recently used Jason and Melissa to sell our Calabasas home. We also asked them to help us with the purchase of a new home in Laguna, but, to their credit, they felt we would be better served to have a local agent so they found us someone else to help on the buy side with our purchase.

    With respect to the sale of our Calabasas home, we needed to sell quickly. The Improta Team had their professionals working to develop videos and marketing materials post-haste. In less than two weeks, the materials were complete, the strategy was set and we were live on the market with our first, and only, open house. In short order they presented us with several above-ask offers and provided counsel as to our negotiation options. We are very happy that we followed their recommendation.

    Thereafter, we quickly entered escrow (at a price significantly above the target we expressed to them at our initial meeting I might add). A few days into escrow, tragedy arose when our buyers ostensibly decided to back out because our house was at the base of a big hill which was our backyard. As one could imagine, we were stressed out, but Melissa and Jason were calm and reassuring. They had a plan! Less than 48 hours later, bada bing bada boom, we were back in escrow at essentially the same price point, but with a longer leaseback period and we were elated. When they came to us with a big problem, they also came to us with a great solution.

    However, the initial escrow situation left us scared (full disclosure, I was an accountant at a couple Big 4 firms for too many years so nervous paranoia is my natural state) and the scars manifested themselves throughout escrow #2 in the form of many, many questions and concerns. It did not matter when the questions/concerns arose (morning, evening, night, weekends) they were always available, responding in a timely and effective manner with patience and understanding. They consistently demonstrated such a strong grasp over the subject matter at hand, which we always found reassuring because you could always trust what they were saying was true.

    They Shepherded us through the entire emotional and legal labyrinth that is the California escrow process providing counsel, fastidiously double / triple checking everything and recommending qualified and competent experts whatever the situation required. Literally, anything we needed, they were there to figure it out for us. I would 100% recommend them seven days a week and twice on Sunday!

    Missy and Jason are exceptional. We worked with them on the sale of our home and purchase of a new one, and we would highly recommend them. We ended up putting our home on the market right as the pandemic hit in March, and somehow they were able to get us full asking price and a 2-month lease back to give us time to find a new home. They also negotiated an incredible deal on our new home purchase. Their team is professional, they are responsive, honest and extremely knowledgeable about the market. I would highly recommend the Improta Team for any real estate sale or purchase.

    Jason and Missy are the only decision when it comes to a local Realtor! They helped us sell our home in West Hills. They are incredibly organized, and a wonderful team to work with. From pre-list to close, they were professional and honest every step of the way removing a lot of the stress from the sales process. I highly recommend working with The Improta Team!

    by Aaron Justis on Improta Team

    Missy and Jason worked non-stop to get my family and I into the only house we wanted! There was a ton of competition but they kept up their positive attitude and worked diligently to convince the other side that we were the only option... and it worked! If you want a positive real estate experience call Missy and Jason, you won't be let down!
