My husband and I have worked with Annette Graw multiple times over the last 10 years, both as buyers and sellers. Not only does Annette have over 30 years of experience within the South Bay market, she has an impeccable attention to detail and follows through on all of the nuances of the sales process. We chose Annette because we know that she knows the local market, she has the relevant contacts, and she knows how to handle the details beyond just price/cost.

Realtors always say the best compliment for their work is a referral. If you are looking for a realtor who knows the South Bay market (El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, and PV), and who will look after your best interests, you should choose Annette Graw.

If you are considering engaging a realtor, I would highly recommend Annette Graw. As a first time home buyer, I can say with total confidence that Annette is a well trained professional who will walk you through the process with patience, dedication and in-depth knowledge that can only be gained through years of experience in the industry.

My search was a 12 month long journey and during that time, Annette never gave up. She encouraged me to keep looking until I found the perfect home. At every phase she was tireless in her efforts to make sure that I was taken care of from the first offer through to closing. When the actions of the seller's realtor became somewhat challenging; Annette never lost patience and always kept my best interest at heart.

I would not hesitate to use Annette in the future. She is a true professional.

It is my pleasure to recommend Annette Graw for realty services in the South Bay. A consummate professional, her experience and poise seem to show best when transactions are difficult or become challenging.

Annette was able to sell my mother's home in Manhattan Beach, a real fixer-upper, in just two months. The house was part of an estate so there were several issues that Annette had to work through. Local ordinances and other possible pitfalls were no problem for her. She is equally skilled in working with me on a second property in south Torrance. I found her help invaluable in preparing the house and her marketing plan produced an offer just four days after listing.

I am confident Annette Graw can handle any residential transaction in the area and strongly recommend her services.

We were referred to Annette Graw through the Northrop Grumman Home Benefits Program two years ago. When we applied for the program, we specifically requested a hard working realtor with 20 plus years experience in the beach area. Annette was recommended to us and we were not disappointed.

We had met with another realtor prior to Annette being referred to us and walked away feeling as though that realtor would not be as dedicated as we would want. We scheduled a meeting with Annette with the intention of meeting her and discussing our expectations, but she had already come up with a list of properties based on our criteria and wanted to go out immediately to look at them. We were not expecting this and were very impressed with her eagerness!

Her strong work ethic continued throughout our entire home search. She has a deep knowledge about the real estate market in the South Bay and did a great job helping us as first time home buyers navigate the market.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.

I have worked with Annette Graw, from South Bay Brokers, for several years.

As the CFO of the Episcopal Diocese I have had many occasions to rely on Annette's real estate expertise and contacts in the Greater Los Angeles County area.

Annette has listed and sold several properties for our organization. She is very knowledgeable and can handle any price range of residential properties.

While each transaction is different, with its own set of challenges, the constant in working with Annette is that she turns those challenges into opportunities for her clients.

When a property is outside of Annette's area of expertise, we appreciate the fact that Annette refers us to her strong network of real estate companies and professionals across Southern California.

For comments or inquiries, please feel free to contact me.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Annette Graw when we purchased our first home in Redondo Beach less than a year ago. we were looking to buy a home in the South Bay area and we wanted a realtor who would be attentive to our needs, knowledgeable about the South Bay area and its different neighborhoods, and experienced with the process of buying a home.

After working with Annette, we found her to be very attentive to our needs and concerns. As our realtor, she was accessible, responsive, and detail-oriented. We communicated with each other on a regular basis, and she continuously provided us with updates and information about different properties that we were considering. Although we were initially looking for a single family home, Annette presented us with a number of different options that we had not previously considered, and eventually we were able to find a two on a lot home in North Redondo Beach.

As we entered the escrow process, Annette's experience and advice was invaluable. As first time home buyers, her expertise helped guide us through the process of negotiations, inspections, and signing documents/contracts. As a result of the home inspection, we had several concerns regarding the condition of the home (e.g., mold), but Annette was able to provide us with information and advice that allowed us to take remedial measures and resolve our issues with the home sellers.

It has been almost a year and a half since we have moved, and we cannot say enough wonderful things about our home and community. We were fortunate to have Annette help us through this process and we would recommend her to other first time home buyers.
