I have worked with Reid on both buying a home and selling my home. Reid is incredibly easy to work with, he is very responsive, he is always accommodating to my needs and very patient with the many questions I have had. He is very knowledgable and also works at a pace where he has a sense of urgency about everything. He is reliable, responsive, thorough and gets the job done! He also explains things in layman terms. With so many layers in the process (both buying and selling), it was really easy to understand it all with Reid’s help. Not only is Reid excellent as what he does, he is also a really great person. He is friendly, responsible and professional. I absolutely love working with Reid and highly recommend him for your future home buying or selling needs!

Reid was outstanding. He helped us navigate some very complex situations while remaining patient and professional. Reid always looked out for us and was always available, in person, whenever we needed his help. This was our first time buying a home and it could not have gone smoother. Reid is fantastic and I can’t recommend him more strongly.

I had a great experience working with Reid in finding my dream home. I’m most impressed with his industry knowledge and responsiveness from my experience working with him. From the very beginning of our home search, Reid was very responsive to my emails and phone calls (most of the times the response was immediate), and I knew right then I had found the right agent. Given the time sensitive nature of a home purchase/sale, it was important for me to be able to trust my agent to be diligent on his part. Furthermore, Reid is extremely knowledgeable, he was able to give me sound advice and recommendation on the purchase offers I made. Overall, I am very grateful to have met Reid, he has been very helpful to me even after my purchase. I look forward to working with him again!

Reid is a great real estate professional and made me feel very comfortable during the process of finding and purchasing my first home. Reid subsequently assisted me in purchasing an investment property. Reid was there every step of the way and had an expansive number of resources for all aspects of the transaction. I look forward to working with Reid again in the future.

Normally I do not rate 5 stars in every category, but Reid Kaplan is one of those very few and rare ultimate professionals that deserves this full maximum performance level due to his focus and dedication every minor and major step along the way in this long involved process of my short sale. He navigated every critical step, and there were so many challenges that never appeared to become frustrating to Reid with his positive ability to surmount any challenge along the way no matter what it took being truly inspirational to me. I was so fortunate to choose Reid who had a firm contract on my very small Condo in the matter of less than a few weeks. He handled every facet of this sale and never disbursed some of the sale process to be handled by others overseeing the whole process along the way and never losing site of the details at every critical juncture where a sale could potentially fall apart He even goes beyond the call of duty going to the extent for my sale of generating more than one back-up offer for added insurance that there was always a contingency in place and never resting when all seemed to be well so that he could head off potential pitfalls before they ever could potentially become an issue. He even worked behind the scenes to resolve issues with the Bank’s short sale process and computer program to get it working so that there would be no extended delay in the overall process. I am truly blessed to have Reid as my agent, and it was so worthwhile that I did check his rating which was superb, and I can definitely see why now after the whole process was so painless for me when I was told that these short sales can be a nightmare – Reid with his professionalism and charismatic manner made it a pleasure. I truly hope that you will make a wonderful choice for your agent as I have for a successful sale or buying experience. Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and I hope this very deserving truth about Reid Kaplan reaches as many people as possible.

Reid helped us through the process of selecting our first condo several years ago, and we recently turned to him again when starting out on the daunting process of buying our first single family home. Through both transactions, Reid was wonderfully helpful and extremely responsive. He is patient, diligent in researching the market, and a great negotiator. He really listens to his client’s needs and works tirelessly to find the right home, for the right price. My husband and I highly recommend Reid!

I contacted Reid Kaplan about a year ago to show me a property listing of his that I was interested in seeing. I was debating my living options since I was relocating from San Diego. I had worked with several realtors in Los Angeles with varying degrees of success and I found Reid to be very personable, intelligent, and aggressive, so when this condo turned out to be not what I was looking for, I decided I would give Reid the opportunity to be my broker.
During the course of our working together, which was about ten months, I was most impressed by Reid’s professionalism, positivity, strategic thinking, and problem solving ability. The most notable example came when we were in escrow on the house I recently purchased. I had been pre-qualified for a loan and despite our persistent attempts to push the lender to approve the loan quickly in order to close early, they stalled. One day before contingencies were to be removed, the bank still had not approved the loan.
Reid dedicated the better part of a week to the task of verifying all information that the lender required at the eleventh hour. Because my previous employer had merged with another company and could not verify my bonuses, Reid tracked down an employee compensation verification website and paid out of his own pocket for salary reports to provide to my lender. In the end, Reid negotiated an extension with the seller’s agent (not an easy task when the seller had a backup offer higher than my own and were rightfully entitled to cancel our contract without the extension) and the information he provided to the lender proved to be vital in allowing the loan to be approved in the nick of time. I think Reid went above and beyond what I would expect a realtor to do, acted with a sense of urgency, and maintained calm under pressure, which helped keep me stay calm in a very stressful situation.
I feel that I was very lucky to have had Reid Kaplan as my real estate agent. He exhibits a variety of traits, confidence and composure in negotiations, willingness to do more than he is asked, and a generally positive and friendly attitude. I feel very comfortable recommending Reid to a potential client who is interested in buying or selling a home.

Reid was great. He was patient with us as we looked all over Los Angeles for the right place. He represented our interests well, was super helpful in the negotiations, and was always willing to show and give his professional opinion. He had our best interests in mind the whole time. I will use Reid again when the time comes to sell the place he helped us buy.
Neal – Hollywood Hills
Reid is an exceptional professional who has a deep understanding of what drives success in real estate marketing and selling. He is effective and efficient at leveraging this knowledge to his clients’ advantage.
He is an excellent planner and communicator, which makes working with him an absolute delight. He sets the right expectations early and overdelivers on them. He is also highly capable of improvising to get things done.
I will certainly work with him again when the opportunity arises, and recommend him without reservation!
