We had the pleasure of working with Terry & Deborah Klein of Berkshire Hathaway in the spring of 2015 and the sale of our home in Laguna Niguel as we prepared to move out of the area. From the start the experience was nothing short of professional with the added benefit of Terry’s expertise in negotiating. Our initial meeting entailed a fully prepared presentation of recent sales and current listings of comparable homes in our area and a summary of current market trends. Upon listing our property a professional photographer worked with Terry in preparing a beautiful brochure highlighting our home’s features and unique character. Terry invested a considerable amount of time in personal marketing efforts and open houses, following up with realtors who previewed our home as well as those who presented our property to their clients. As we entered into escrow with what proved to be a difficult buyer and even more difficult buyer’s agent, Terry’s expertise guided us through some very stressful moments and his skills in maintaining our agreement points throughout the transaction were impressive. His calm persona in a challenging sale was a great source of comfort to us. We have known Terry Klein for over 30 years and I highly recommend him and Deborah in representing your real estate purchase and/or sale. Honesty, experience, professionalism and integrity are without question the hallmark of this team. They are a pleasure to work with.

Terry and Debra Klein have been such a pleasure to work with over the last few years. When my wife and I were looking to sell our home in Newport and move to Laguna we contacted the Klein’s to help us. They found us exactly what we were looking for in Laguna. We bought a beautiful cottage style home in Laguna and we love it. They then sold our home in Newport. They made it all so easy. They were very professional and informative throughout our search and transactions. We loved working with them and have become great friends. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to find or sell their dream home in Laguna.
Terry and Deborah are easy going but professional. I always felt they wanted to help guide us, but not tell us what to do. They seemed to have our best interest at heart... We benefited greatly by their knowledge and experience of living in Laguna Beach. I would highly recommend them to prospective buyers and sellers.

Moving from San Francisco, Terry and Deborah represented us in the purchase of our cottage in Woods Cove. They were always accessible and provided accurate insights into the local market, which they know well from their long history in Laguna Beach. We appreciated their wise and friendly counsel during the entire process. Post close, we’re glad to be crossing path’s with them frequently as members of the Laguna community.

I have recently worked with Terry Klein on a complicated transaction in Laguna Beach that came to fruition after a period of five months…a great deal of it’s success came through Terry’s steady and calming manner. I don’t think the purchase would have gone through with anyone else that I have met in the area.
Working with Terry and Deborah on our purchase of our Laguna cottage was terrific. Terry expertly helped us navigate the search and purchase process in a way that made it smooth and easy. And Deborah provided a keen eye for possibilities in each of the properties that we viewed along the way. They’re a great team, with incredible local knowledge and know how, and were a pleasure to work with."
I was faced with a daunting task – selling my home in Laguna Beach. I had never bought or sold a home on my own and I was in a state of panic. And then I was introduced to Terry and Deborah Klein. From the beginning they made the process remarkably uncomplicated. They walked me through every step with a thorough explanation of each phase of the negotiations. They were able to put my mind at ease. Their attention to detail and knowledge of the market were such important assets. It was truly a pleasure to work with the Kleins. I highly recommend their great service.
Buying a house can be very stressful: Looking, finding “thee house”, making and negotiating the offer and the endless confusing documents to sign. Working with Terry and Deborah made all this work in a very efficient, calm and congenial manner.
Due to both their long real estate history in the Laguna area, their knowledge is endless. I was an out of town buyer and being that there are many “unique” neighborhood niches in Laguna Beach finding the right property can be challenging, but they know them all intricately and extensively. I feel that is why we were able to find and acquire the perfect property for our needs.
Whether you are buying or selling I would not hesitate to recommend Terry and Deborah, they really give 110% towards this effort. Their trustworthiness and knowledge are just really valuable and pleasant to work with.
