Exceptional in Every Way. Fleming Trainor helped us find our forever home! She also helped us sell our old home. Thanks to her, both transactions were quick and seamless and I enthusiastically recommend Fleming. For our new home, Fleming negotiated a great deal for us and introduced us to a financing team that had incredibly creative financing ideas. This was our dream home, and Fleming made sure we got it. Fleming and her team made sure every T was dotted and I was crossed. They were amazing. Similarly, with respect to the sale of our old home, Fleming staged our home beautifully, put together an amazing video tour of our home, and used social media to help get the word out. Despite the fact that we were selling during a pandemic (fall 2020) we had a great offer within a short time. One hitch that she fixed - the appraiser for the buyer undervalued the home -- causing a potentially fatal problem with the sale -- but without skipping a beat, Fleming addressed the issue and the buyers got a new appraisal a week later. We closed in three weeks. All I can say is THANK YOU TRAINOR TEAM!
We have worked with Fleming for close to 5 years now. As a lender it's not always easy to find the right match with clients. This is never a problem with Fleming. We can be positive she will give every client the attention to detail and expertise they deserve regardless of the situation. She is always at the top of my recommendation list and no one hustles harder for us. You won't go wrong.
We were very excited as first time home buyers. Fleming made it easy for us with her outstanding knowledge as a Realtor. We loved our cozy, cute home! We felt so proud. We spent 3 wonderful years in that home, but then the news of a new job location came up. We were short of time. Again, we reached out to Fleming and she helped us put our home for lease. That was taken care of quick as well. We appreciate her so much for her hustle, passion, and honesty!
We moved across country while I was pregnant and had no clue what we were doing. Fleming took the time to Facetime with us since we couldn't travel to show us houses. Additionally, when we arrived she was the first person at our doorstep and kept in touch with us that entire first week. She helped us learn our new town and things to do in the area. When we decided to buy a home, she was the only choice we wanted to make! I will definitely recommend her to all my friends!
I sought out Fleming's help after failed leasing attempts with other agents. Fleming was by far a stand out and different from the rest from the beginning. My husband and I were less than optimistic prior to meeting with Fleming as we had already been turned down repeatedly. Her optimist, understanding, and personal approach was a breath of fresh air. She's always one step ahead in the realtor's game and in keeping us informed. We would recommend Fleming to anyone!
Fleming is a great asset to the home buying/selling process for any client. She is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise and understands the little things that need to be done to accomplish the ultimate goal of home ownership. I have also referred clients to her for her representation and I won't hesitate to do it again. My clients have always left glowing reviews about the process and the end result(s).
Fleming's team is one of the best. I personally worked with Fleming when I was looking to rent a new place. After being in our old house, for long time, we had specific requirements when we started looking for new one. She immediately understood our needs and filtered the showings accordingly. She has a very good grasp of the market. After we finalized, she paid greater attention to details during the lease signing and other procedures. I highly recommend Fleming and her team.
We originally felt that a Chinese agent was needed in order to market our San Marino property to the asian communities and the widest marketplace possible. However, Fleming was not only able to reach those spheres of influence both domestically and internationally, but she did so with intelligence and marketing savvy. In fact, someone in Shanghai viewed her marketing piece on our home and flew directly just to view our home on a turn-a-round trip! She achieved a multiple offers & sold fast!
We've had the pleasure to work with Fleming both as buyers and sellers of our homes in Pasadena and San Marino. We'd not only recommend Fleming to our friends and family but have actually done so several times, leading to more great outcomes. Fleming has the total package of hustle, heart, and honesty. Seeing her go the extra mile time and time again, especially during a challenging, time-sensitive deal with a number of potentially deal-ending complications, earned our trust multiple times over.
I think we can all agree 2020 was brutal. As it comes to an end I can confidently say Fleming was the singular best thing that happened to our family this year. We were first time home buyers and our first try at buying a home with another agent fell apart. We needed help, someone who really understood what we needed in a home, the added bonuses, and someone who would flag areas of concern/future work so we weren’t blind sided. There aren’t enough words to describe the love I’ll forever have for Fleming. She gave our daughter a home.
Hiring Fleming was the best decision we made in a buyer agent. She is a God-send! We were experiencing a very complicated contingency sale with another agent. Our seller agent was unreliable, forgetful, rude and set us up to fail a number of times. We hired Fleming to be our buyer agent. She was very transparent with us, super knowledgeable and strategic. She knows her stuff and keeps your interests front and center. I feel like I can call her a friend. She is amazing. I highly recommend Fleming if you're selling or buying a home (or both). She does not disappoint.
Our latest was the third real estate transaction done by Fleming & her team. She was so kind with her time and, on several occasions, drove to San Diego's North County to help us with our home purchase. With Fleming you get expertise and years of experience in every field related to your home sale or purchase. She is resourceful, has extraordinary knowledge and organization to steer you through this exciting, important but also nerve-racking experience. Fleming has excellent negotiating skills, is your personal consultant in every aspect of the transaction, and quickly and seamlessly gets you where you want to be. We searched for homes and made offers in San Diego for over a year with no results. Then we got tired and called Fleming. Within a few weeks we were in escrow, with an excellent financing option. Another example is the sale of our Pasadena home, that sold in one day at an unimaginable price. Again thanks to her magic touch. It is equally important that Fleming is an absolutely wonderful person, and a beautiful and generous soul. Thank you to the Trainor Team and Fleming in particular for your hard work. We are so happy we have met. It is always an absolute pleasure working with you!
Fleming is a true professional in every aspect of her work. It is always a pleasure go through a transaction with her. She is equally skilled in working with both buyers and sellers.
Loved Fleming!!!! Very knowledgeable and gave great advice for our first home.
Working with Fleming has been nothing but a pleasant experience. I service the real estate professional and I do come across many agents. Fleming stands out amongst many for a number of reasons, her professionalism, her understanding of each situation and how prepared she comes to every business event that I have been a part of. It's always a privilege working with her.
I had escrow transaction with The Trainor Team and it was an amazing journey through the transaction. The team took care of their client and prompt on all escrow needs better than "in timely manner." They were the professional.
I can't say enough about Fleming and The Trainor Team. From the moment we decided to purchase and were subsequently introduced to Fleming, we found in her a patient, listened / understood our quirkiness go-getter of a real-estate professional. Our process lasted a while, but Fleming was always there to show us new properties. Eventually, we found the right fit and Fleming steered us beautifully with great advice and hard work to seal the deal. Couldn't be happier with Fleming and her team.
It was a real pleasure working with someone like you. My crew and I were grateful and had a please time working with you.
Fleming's first impression kind of set the tone for the entire process. Use your time effectively, Pay close attention to the details, Hone your wants/needs as you check houses off the list, and when you find THE ONE come correct with great paperwork, lender relationships, the human touch, and the attitude that this is locked in. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and even though her workload is significant, we never felt that it hindered our search and our eventual buy. Thank you again!
As always, we are very happy with the work, help and support provided to us by Fleming and her team.
We met Fleming by chance and we are so happy we did! We’re first time home buyers and working with Fleming was such a blessing! She’s extremely knowledgeable and helpful, she made the whole process very smooth and efficient. We really appreciated how patient she was with us and she taught us so much. She works extremely hard and is always responsive. I’d highly recommend her. Thank you, Fleming!!! We’re so happy with our home, couldn’t have done it without you!
I always look forward to working with Fleming and her team. They are smart, savvy, and have a gift for making the nerve-wracking homebuying process enjoyable. They take exceptional care to ensure their clients are served-well and happy. I can't recommend them enough.
Priced the house appropriately and staged it so it was a real eye grabber. Sold in 2 weeks for above asking. Very professional and knowledgeable...a pleasure to work with!!
Fleming sold our house in four days! And during Covid! We hadn’t thought about moving and then found a house we loved, but worried that our house wouldn’t sell because of Covid. Well, she suggested a lot of things to make our home show-ready - she has great style and beautiful taste - and the photographic artists she brought to photograph our home were amazing. The transaction turned out to be more difficult than expected and I’ve never seen anyone handle the purchase and the sale with more knowledge and sheer doggedness! We will always be grateful that she was with us during this move!
Working with Fleming as part of the Trainor Team at Sotheby's was one of the best decisions we could have made. At first, the home-buying process was overwhelming with many things to think about. For example, where do we want to live, how much can we spend on a house, can we actually afford to do this, what's important to us, etc.? But with Fleming's help, we were able to find a great home and had no hiccups throughout the entire process thanks to her expertise. She and her team were extremely responsive and basically handled everything so that we always felt like we were in good hands. One thing I will say, she knows how to put together an iron-clad, comprehensive offer package. And progressing through the escrow process was a breeze. I cannot recommend her services enough and anyone who chooses the Trainor Team will not be disappointed. Thank you for reading my review.
Fleming is ALWAYS a pleasure to work with. She is on top of things from beginning to end. Communication and problem solving is very much a part of the experience with her - not to mention a great person as well !
I have to say she is the best realtor that I have ever worked with. She rescued a townhouse for me from the jaws of another buyer and kept on it unlit it was closed. Without her effort and tenacious I would had no chance of getting the place that I fell in love with. Thank you and thank you Fleming Keep up the good work.
Fleming is a very experienced realtor and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends in need of a real estate expert! Thanks for everything.
Fleming was an absolute delight to work with. Extremely organized and a great communicator. We had a wonderful experience and a smooth transaction. Highly recommend!
I had a good time to work with Trainor. She is very professional and helpful. She prepared everything we needed not just on time but ahead of time. Teaming up with her, we can close escrow in 7 days without any problems. Looking forward to work with her again.
Fleming has a positive attitude and offers great customer service. You can expect her to work hard and hustle for you.
Fleming is a dynamic realtor who helped negotiate a much higher sales price than any other comps and negotiated with the best stager to get my home sold quickly to the best buyers. She helped me find my first investment home which I turned into a $150k profit.
To work with Fleming is to truly work with a professional. I didn’t need to worry about anything. I will happily work with Fleming on all our future real estate needs!
This is my first home purchase and Fleming made it easy and smooth. She is so knowledgeable and tells you things you won't think about. I feel super lucky that I have her as my agent and will definitely recommend her to everyone I know who are looking for houses.
We had a "real estate wish" that I thought was not possible to achieve! Fleming made it happen in within a week of contacting her! If she didn't want to spend the day in the rain visiting the listings, we would NOT have got our property! We cannot thank her enough! I cannot wait until we need to use her again!
Fleming was very helpful from start to finish. Took her time to explain the subtleties of the process and she was understanding of what it was I truly wanted. She has made herself available to help with references and advice after the fact. Feels as if I've gained a trusted friend rather than someone just to hurry me through a transaction. I've recommended her to all my friends. Happy is an understatement.
Fleming is the best! She is so knowledgable about the market and the area. We are first time home buyers and she was happy to answer our millions of questions. We are just sad we found a home so quickly that we don't get to keep working with her!
My brother passed away over a year ago and I had spent weekends clearing and sorting his belongings in preparation to sell his house. I finally got to the point where I was overwhelmed by it all. Fortunately, my financial advisor recommended that I contact Fleming Trainor. I am so happy that I did! Fleming presented a realistic appraisal of the house, but in an upbeat and positive way. She gave me plenty of worthwhile advice and put me in touch with professionals who helped prepare the house for sale. In the meantime, she posted “Listing soon” notices online to stir up advance market interest. When we were ready to list, she hired a drone operator on a picture perfect day - she had checked the weather reports - to take aerial photos of the house and its fantastic hillside view of the San Gabriel Valley. She and her team staged a very successful two-day Open House that attracted hundreds. She kept me up to date on matters and she answered my questions as they arose. And when I received so many offers for the property, she worked hard to pare them down to the two best ones. Amazingly, the house sold for cash for more than it listed and in a little over a week’s time. I couldn’t have gotten it all done without her. Fleming is a gem! I can’t recommend her and her team enough! She is the best real estate professional out there and I would use her services again in a heartbeat.
From our very first conversation on the phone, I had confidence Fleming "got" me and my family and what we desired in a home, and I knew we were in good hands. Longer distance relocations can be daunting, but she was exceptionally accommodating of our schedules, and so impressively incisive, dedicated and efficient helping us identify our top contenders and secure our perfect landing. I would enthusiastically recommend her!
From start to finish, Fleming was a shining example of what real estate professionals should be: honest, clear, communicative, and driven to help the client meet their goals of finding the best home for the greatest value. We are thrilled with the end result in which we're now nestling into a new home that meets all of our needs! Her professionalism and determination were outstanding. We would recommend her to anyone.
Can you say patient? We were new to the area and picky on our new home. Fleming's patience, knowledge, understanding, as well as her attention to our wants and needs in a home, was truly a White Glove Experience. We have two small children so free time revolves around their activities and needs. Fleming's response time and flexibility in a market full of activity made all the difference in us securing our home. She is so easy going and relatable that it made this process so much easier.
I highly recommend The Trainor Team for any of your real estate needs. It has a group of experts who are very professional, efficient, determined and have vast knowledge of all of the aspects of the business.
I will definitely look for her for all my future needs and I have passed her contact info to all my friends. And she has become my friend, too!
Fleming is very responsive and knows her stuff. She’s been able to secure good tenants for us multiple times and always ready to help. We highly recommend her!
Without doubt we would recommend Ms Fleming to anyone needing professional assistance with proven results. Our lawyer recommended her as the very best and most knowledgeable in working probate real estate issues. Ms Flemings' competence, integrity, and professionalism sets her apart from many. It was and will continue to be a pleasure working Ms Fleming!
I enjoyed working with the Trainor Team! Let's do another one!
Fleming & her team are true professionals. I enjoyed working with them! It was a pleasant and easy experience.
I just want to say thank you so much to Fleming for all her help and hard work. I appreciate everything she did on my behalf and I will be referring her to everyone I know!
Fleming is bright, personable and excellent to work with.
Great experience, very professional, good communication. Looking forward to the next opportunity
We are so very, very pleased that to be able to have Fleming "Triple" Trainor quickly assess & efficiently advertise, meet, interview, & pre-qualify so many who wanted to lease our Arcadia condo. In the past always relied on posting signs in front & advertising on Craig's list..& lost a month of rent. Fleming advised work to be done; place was listed Friday afternoon, shown by her Sat & Sun, we met & signed papers Mon..wonderful new tenants moved in Wed, Aug 1st. She did everything & better tenants! THRILLED! Fleming did all of the work....relieved us of the stress of dealing with everything. We didn't have a vacancy for a month or more.....and the cost was basically the same....commission was about equal to the loss of a month's rent....and peace of mind. ...A real no-brainer....and she is fun to be around! THANKS FLEMING....
FLEMING is a highly experienced, smart professional. She maintains constant communication and is solution-driven. The bonus was having fun during the process. Thank you FLEMING!
What is difficult when moving from one city to the next, is most Realtors prefer not to deal with renters they simply provided a list of what is available. Relocating to Pasadena looking on my own I met Fleming she had a unit I called on, not available however, what was available was the most amazing Realtor I have ever met; professional, vigilant & 100% committed to my search. Finding me an apt, to an introduction to the city, flowers on my move in and so much more Fleming is a FIVE STAR!
Fleming is the person to call when you have multifaceted needs. She goes above and beyond (and then some) to make her clients happy. She has become a great real estate advisor to us as we approach our goal of being homeowners. I wouldn't want to work with anyone else, she has shown us again and again how professional and caring she is. You would be hard pressed to find someone more knowledgeable, positive, and reliable. We would highly recommend her to everyone in the market to buy or sell!
We recommend her without reservation. She will listen to your needs and resolve your issues patiently. My sister who purchased one home through her recommended her to us. Subsequently we also purchased one home through her for our son. Currently we are having her team listing one home for lease because we like their service. She is running a very professional team.
Fleming and the Trainor Team are amazing!!! I HIGHLY recommend her and the team. We’ve used her for leasing in the past and most recently a purchase. She is very real estate savvy and knows her stuff. If I could give her 6 stars I would!!!!!
Fleming and her assistant Kelly were great throughout the whole process. Very responsive and made sure we got the best deal possible. They were a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!
Fleming came highly referred to us through a friend and we have used her both to buy a home and to lease a home with. She helped us get a great home in a tough market and a few years later when we needed to lease it, she got the job done quicker than I could have imagined, with great tenants. She knows the market, and quickly knew what we were looking for. I will use her for every real estate transaction even if we have to fly her somewhere else if need be!
The Trainor Team is very professional and committed to the welfare of their clients. Fleming is absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to work with.
Fleming is top-notch -- she's prompt, reliable, hard working, and a joy to work with.
Fleming helped my husband and I find our new home in less than a week! She listened to what we wanted, and helped us filter out things that didn't meet our "need" list, as well as keep us on budget. When she was with us, she was totally focused on what we wanted and had feedback about everything from neighborhood locations, school districts, home warranties and insurance, quality of home finishes, etc. she is a wealth of knowledge!
She went the extra mile! She coached the seller's less experienced realtor on the required forms and timing to help expedite our bid, which is a huge reason we were able to get the home we wanted. She has this personality that just makes people happy to work with her. Everything was so smooth!
In addition to helping us find our new home, she had a wonderful list of resources to help us with home inspections, appraisals, repairs, cleaning, etc... she uses all of these vendors on a regular basis and has established a strong business relationship with each of them. I felt much better about the services provided by these people because I knew they were trustworthy.
The lender she recommended was incredible! We were able to close escrow in ten days! The ten day close was totally possible because Fleming coached us on what documents were needed in advance and we were able to get everything together with minimal fuss. The lender and escrow company were very responsive and a dream to work with. Everything moved so fast that our heads were spinning. Before we knew it, we had keys to our new home.
With Fleming you aren't just getting help finding a piece of property, she will help with the entire process. She always had time for us and was super responsive. My heart is full of love and appreciation for this wonderful woman. She made a stressful situation easy and our transition from one home to another quick and simple.
I totally recommend her services. She is the best realtor I've ever worked with.
I sought out the help of Fleming Helmstadter after failed leasing attempts with other agents. Fleming was by far a stand out and different from the rest from the beginning. My husband and myself were in a bind; as we struggled with credit issues. We were less than optimistic prior to meeting with Fleming; as we had already been turned down repeatedly. Fleming's optimistic, understanding and incredibly personal approach was a huge fresh breath of air. Other than her amazing personal touch, she was always one step ahead, in both the realtors game and with updating and keeping us informed. Fleming was always easy to reach and always quick to respond. We found a place within a very short time of soliciting Flemings help, and we attribute this accomplishment to her expertise! I would and will recommend Fleming to anyone!
I have used the real estate services of Fleming when I put my house up for sale and you could not do any better than Fleming Helmstadter. She has the kind of drive and energy and can do spirit and I could not be happier with all she did for me during the sale process.
Have you worked with Fleming Trainor before and want to write a testimonial on their behalf?
