The selection of Robert was highly recommended by my mortgage company.

Robert did not disappoint he actually exceeded expectations I had for a busy agent he made himself available for all of my concerns and notified me ahead of time of hour of unavailability.

She used her resources to find the owner, and within 36 hours we had an offer in and ACCEPTED. We closed 20 days later.

Gina strikes again!

This is the second real estate process Gina has done for us and she made it as easy and smooth as ever. Both buying and selling she does it all and she does it well. Great service from a great agent. Thank you Gina!

Nick B.

Gina is dedicated, knowledgeable, and supportive and I am so glad I had her as my real estate agent.

During the time that I was looking for a home, it seemed like every home had several offers the first week it went on the market. Gina and I spent a lot of time looking at homes. Gina was very easy going and what could have been a frustrating process was enjoyable. Gina would point out items in the home that needed to be upgraded or repaired so that I could make an educated decision about an offer. It was great to have a friendly ear to discuss my options. She would listen and provide feedback, but was never pushy. I really felt she had my best interest at heart and her feedback was always tied to my priorities. Thanks to Gina’s negotiating skills, my offer was accepted over another over that was higher. When we went through escrow, there were many issues that came up with necessary repairs to the home. Gina was invaluable in guiding me through the process. She organized professionals to conduct inspections and any time there was an issue, she always had solutions. I truly enjoyed working with Gina on the purchase of my home and will work with her again when we buy or sell our next home.

Desiree Serrano

Tracy did a great job for my brother and I.

Keep us informed all the way. We are happy with the outcome. The escrow was very quick. She found the buyer. That’s what we hired to do. Thanks Tracy. !!

Gina Cerchio is by far the best realtor we’ve ever delt with.

She worked tirelessly with us to find us our dream home and made the experience so much less stressful as this was an interstate move with many complications. She never gave up on us. She is now a part of the family. We highly recommend her.

Karen is by far the Best Realtor in the HD.

She is absolutely beautiful inside and out, she is a joy to work with and she's amazing at her job. She has sold 2 of my homes and helped me purchase 2 as well.. The 1st transaction easy as pie the 2nd was when Covid first broke out and needless to say it was a new experience for everyone but she did everything to make it less stressful. I'm lucky to have her as a realtor and truly blessed to now call her my friend. She's the kindest and most caring women I know, my daughter and I just love her. She's professional, and very responsive.

I worked with Kim and Theresa selling my condo.

They made the process super painless and kept communication top of mind to always make sure I was informed of the process of the sale. They hosted an open house for the property and made it very discoverable. I will definitely be working with them again next time I plan on moving.

Tyler Hartzheim

Rob stuck it out throughout my buying process with various loan types I qualified for that varied in the last 6 months.

Gina went more than the extra mile.

When all of our financing for a mobile home fell through and we were beyond stressed that we might not find anyplace to live, Gina stepped up immediately and asked if she could help us find a apartment rental. Gina found us a beautiful 2 bed 2 bath condo around a mile from the beach. Thanks Gina for a great job!

Gina Cerchio was an amazing resource in helping me.

  I have very specific needs and she was professional and attentive, going out of her way to show me several different properties and quit until we found a place I was happy with. She was also very detailed and walked me  through every step of the process. I would highly recommend anyone in the market for buying or selling a home!


Gina provided amazing help and has a sophisticated knowledge and management style that allowed her to juggle multiple overlapping and complicated transactions with ease.

Her marketing, pre-listing and after close attention to detail is extra ordinary.


Easy to work with, good rates.

Brenda Kaeser

Gina has great professionalisum, and I never hesitated to make her my #1 Agent of choice.

  As I see her work for me more and more, she has surprised me with her integrity and helpfullness.  I have been let down by "other" agents that over-promise, but Gina is not like those other agents.  She is upfront and honest, and will never lead you astray.   Between the Marketing that First Team put out there and the personalized markeiting that Gina published, we got an offer after only 6 days for a record amount.

Patrick Prezioso

Exceptional service!

He just a very happy and great positive realtor!

"Gina is incredibly knowledgeable and did a wonderful Job!

This was my first time purchasing a home, and she was so helpful throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond to ensure that I got exactly what I was looking for."

Sariah Emmanuel

Working with Karen Cochran has been the best experience I've had working with a realtor.

What made this process standout was Karen's accessibility, knowledge of the housing market, communication and organizational skills. The first day I reached out to Karen to let her know that I was interested in viewing some properties, she answered my call immediately and we went and looked at properties! With her knowledge of the Real Estate market, she was able to advise me on the best price to list my home, and a reasonable price to offer on the new home that I found. I was kept in the loop during the entire process, and made aware of what to expect next. She made sure all required documents needing signatures were sent to me immediately, so as not to cause any delays. We closed three escrow deals, on schedule and with no issues. I highly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to buy or sell property. Thank you

Robert Escareno

If I ever needed to hug again for the home are I needed to help out a friend she would be the first I I would recommend with her you got a winner

Sandra Martinez

I am so glad I asked Gina to handle the purchase of my home.

 She was super responsive and very thorough during the entire process.  Because of her market knowledge and relentless follow up, I ended up getting the home that I truly wanted and at an amazing price. Gina was so on top of the process   the entire time that, even though I was out of the country during the escrow, I never felt stressed about missing any deadlines.  When challenges arose (as they always do), Gina was always very quick to present alternatives solutions which kept me in the position of strength.What I was most impressed by was how strongly Gina negotiated on my behalf.  In the end, she got me a huge credit from the sellers which covered my closing-costs and I actually got a check after the close of escrow.Gina's honest and realistic approach coupled with her knowledge of local market and home prices really made my transactions go smoothly. I will recommend Gina to everyone I meet!!

From the first time we met Rob, he was energetic, outgoing, and we knew he wanted the best for us.

We instantly knew we were in great hands. He handled everything that came our way with extreme knowledge, confidence, and respect. He got us more for our home than we ever would have expected. He is a top notch realtor, and we would recommend him to everyone.

Gloria L

"I love Rob.

He was more than my agent. He was a real friend, who took the time to listen and answer any questions I had. He also offered so much information I was not aware of. I got a real education with Rob about purchasing and financing a home. I now not only have a great contact to refer all my friends and family to, but I also have a new friend in Rob. He's the greatest!"

Angie M

I can honestly say that it was a genuine pleasure and blessing to have Karen sell my home in Hesperia!

Not only was she extremely proactive in showing the home and making sure it had maximum exposure, but she took great care in making sure that everything was on the up and up so we weren't dealing with hassles during closing. She went out of her way to make sure I didn't have to lift a finger (other than signing papers). She's professional, vibrant, outgoing and an all around joy to work with!!! I totally recommend her.

Jesse Hudson

My wife and I just bought our first home with Kim and Theresa.

We were very pleased with Gina Our appns with all the homes we looked at were scheduled on time and all questions were answered as needed I have been in my new home for over a week and I am so happy that Gina was able to close on time with our move in date- We would contact Gina again if we or my friends need a new home

Arlene Davis

Tracy did a good job in helping us market our house and listing it at an optimal asking price.

Tracy did communicate with us regularly. The main thing that needs to improve is her communication with other realtors, inspectors and appraisers. There were a number of incidents where scheduled appointment times were not honored. For us that was an issue because of our having to take three dogs off the property during those times.

Stephen J Trudeau

She is just the best


Lila was very good at evaluating our particular situation and marketing our house in a professional way and she stayed in constant communication with my sister and I kept us updated on the continuing process of escrow evolution.
