I just received confirmation that the escrow on the sale of my Parent’s Malibu Home has closed and I wanted to let you know how much myself and Miriam and our family appreciate and thank you for your efforts, professionalism, advice and strategic guidance. Even though I have spent the better part of my business life in commercial real estate, residential real estate is different. I have come to appreciate and depend upon your counsel. The successful sale of our home is due in large part to your judgment and superb negotiation skills. As you know, we interviewed a number of Malibu Real Estate Teams before deciding to have your Partner’s Trust Team undertake the marketing of our family home. You have delivered on your assurances regarding the marketing program. It has been just 9 months since we listed with you. From the outset you demonstrated an imaginative approach to the marketing of our Fickett Home [WSJ Home of the Week, a great print advertising campaign that assured us a steady and constant stream of shows, and your amazing network of people]. Most importantly, your guidance on pricing, negotiation and structuring of our counter offers was right on. Your judgement and recommendation to reset our listing price was spot on. And, since getting into escrow, Jennifer has been awesome in coordinating and facilitating the closing. I sincerely respect and deeply appreciate your efforts. Miriam and I have enjoyed working with you both.

Madison has helped us sell or purchase several homes which worked extremely well for us. We found him to be very professional, honest and worked hard for all parties.

I had a great experience working with The Malibu Life Team. Due to their great marketing plan my home sold in 4 months. I would highly recommend Madison Hildebrand and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Malibu.

My wife and I worked with 'The Malibu Life Team' to purchase a condo in Playa Vista. We found them incredibly helpful, highly communicative, collaborative, and most importantly...great problem solvers. Being this is our first home, problems can (and do) arise, and having Madison on our side to help us in navigating those waters (from HOA challenges to banking hiccups) proved instrumental in securing, closing and moving into our dream (first) home. Madison and his team are pro's, and we'd absolutely use them again and/or recommend them to family and friends. If you want more info, feel free to message me directly

Madison did a great job for us in marketing our Malibu house. We closed very quickly at the price I expected. Most importantly, he and his team delivered the best realtor service I've ever had. Madison is brilliant and amazingly personable, a great negotiator, and his partner Jennifer and their local associates are extremely detail oriented and client-responsive. Can't say enough positive about the entire Partners Trust team in Malibu

I never did complete a deal with Jennifer. But aside from being a saint (she put up with my unrealistic demands far too long; I was looking for land and was combing through problematic bargain properties), she knows every nook and cranny of Malibu and Agoura (and probably Calabasas and Westlake and Thousand Oaks). She is smart and has great poise. She is a very good intermediary, whether on the buyer or seller side. She is also very well connected and can refer to reliable consultants, albeit one still does need to exercise caution given the cost of some of these individuals. I recommend Jennifer without any reservation. I know any time I consider a purchase, she's the first person I consult. I will not buy a property in the area without her as my realtor.

Jennifer is simply the best broker in Los Angeles county bar NONE! I have used Jennifer's services for more than 10 years in every real estate transaction I have ever done, whether as buyer or seller, land or home deal and she has been a revelation. Even people who I bought from and sold to have gone on to ask Jennifer to represent them. Her experience, knowledge of both land and home deals, hard work, enthusiasm, honesty and flair have made her an irreplaceable asset. The one time I was dumb enough to think I could do without her help, well, six months later I was begging her to come back and she completed that deal in just three months at the height of the pullback. I'm not in the praise game normally, but on this one occasion I can offer my very highest recommendation to a superb professional.

Madison is truly the "MagicMan" of real estate. His charisma and unique ability to harmoniously bring buyers and sellers together time and time again (we speak from experience) is nothing short of astonishing.

Working with Madison was a joy. His Malibu knowledge was extensive and his negotiating skills were quite impressive. Our escrow was a bit complicated, but in the end, Madison was able to close the deal painlessly. Additionally, the professionals who work with Madison at The Malibu Life Team were always able to answer our many questions which made it easier for us during the transition period of selling our home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $750K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

Jennifer was incredibly professional to deal with in locating and purchasing my new home. She knew all the ins and outs of the industry and is passionate about what she does.

During the home inspection process of escrow she even got her hands dirty with the inspector to make sure nothing was overlooked. Her experience really showed when she was uncovering things the inspector probably would have never noticed. I highly recomend Jennifer and her team for your real estate needs.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2017 for approximately $1.2M in Point Dume, Malibu, CA.

Jennifer and her team recently represented my husband and son on a transaction that was a seemingly "small deal" for them, but a "big deal" for my son. She made us feel like we were a $20M dollar client every step of the way and her passion for the business and for us, her clients, was evident in every way. She paid extra careful attention to the contract, strategy, timing and communicated with us regularly. We have, and will continue to recommend The Malibu Life Team to anyone, whether you are a first time home seller/buyer, or a complete veteran in real estate, because there is no question she is a consummate professional and an expert in the industry.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $2.075M in Venice, Marina Del Rey, CA.

Our experience with Madison and his team was supreme. From our first contact, I knew we were with the best team I could hope. They were unbelievably knowledgeable, detailed, professional, and helpful. Their communication through the stressful process of purchasing a home was always comforting while giving us sound advice at every turn. Their breadth of information made us feel confident that we were making wise decisions that were best for us. They had excellent home inspection contacts, which made our home inspections and repairs happen promptly and executed flawlessly. Madison and his team never dropped the ball, and we are so grateful to have worked with them!

As long time Malibu residents and having a large family we have experienced many agents but none have matched the ease and support we have felt with Natalie. Her understanding of clear and friendly communication impressed us each time she showed us a property we were interested in. She’s authentic and professional in every way and we feel we can always rely on her. Thank you Natalie!

Bally has been helping my family find a home in Los Angeles. He made it so we never have to worry about missing a detail on the homes that we see or even worry about being thirsty because he always has bottles of water. Looking for homes can be tiring, but his organization makes the process very smooth. I'm impressed.

Mr Khehra took me on a showing in Thousand Oaks and was extremely professional. He was very helpful with the questions that I asked and knew everything about the property. He went above and beyond to match the criteria I had given him. His passion for his role made him one of the best realtors I've dealt with and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.

Pamela is hands down the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. She saw me through some tough negotiations to close the deal. She also didn't leave me once I moved in. She has constantly been available to me, as a first time home owner, for any question I ever have. She is absolutely the best and I will never work with anyone else.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Mid-City, Santa Monica, CA.

I can not say enough good things about Pamela Wilson. She has helped me buy and sell and rent! She is a very professional, communicative, smart and works to get you the best price possible whether you're buying or selling. She is easy to get a hold of via email, call or text and will give you advice on what to do to get top offers on your home. I've referred several friends to her and they've all been super impressed with her and have used her multiple time to buy and sell. And, once your deal is done - you can still call her for any concerns, advice or questions. I could not recommend anyone higher. Thank you, Pamela!

Gina was very diligent and thorough in my search for a property in Downtown, LA. She spent a lot of time with me as if I was her only client, even though I know how busy she was. She explained everything very well and I completely trusted in her in the process of finding my next new home. I will always use Gina for my real estate needs and I will recommend her to my all of my family and friends as well.
