“I highly recommend Zen Ziejewski and his team for any real estate needs. They have a deep understanding and knowledge of how the real estate market works and more importantly, what is best for the client. I felt that they had my back every step of the way and made my interest a priority through out the process. Each person on the team was a pleasure to work with and followed through to make everything fall into place very quickly, I will definitely be back with Zen and team down the road!!” – Vicki B. (Seller/Buyer)
“Zen and his team were great to work with in helping us buy our first house. We worked with Zen and his team for over a year and the advice given throughout, really helped us ensure that we were making the right decision when we finally made our purchase. What I most enjoyed with working with Zen and his team was the knowledge and the honesty in whether or not it made sense for us to move forward. The reason it took over a year is at the beginning, we honestly couldn’t afford to buy and Zen and his team were honest in telling us that. They also continued to follow up to see if our situation changed and let us know that they were there for us. We will definitely use them in the future.” – Philip M. (Buyer)
“Zen and whole Z Team did a magnificent job on the sale of our house in Lake Forest. They were all very profession, responsive, and easy to work with. Zen’s marketing strategy was superb and drew a lot of viewers to the open house. We received 9 offers within days and many of them were over the asking price. Zen and Laura helped us to obtain and pick the highest, best and most qualified offer for our house. They are very experienced and savvy.
We listed on May 1st and escrow closed before the end of the month. The whole process was smooth and painless from beginning to end. We would not hesitate to recommend Zen and the Z Team to friends and family.” – Julie N. (Seller)
“These guys are awesome! As first time home buyers, we knew nothing about the process to search for and buy a new home. Zen, Leland and Team made it so easy (and even enjoyable) to find and buy the right home for us. They even walked us through the mortgage process, although this is typically a piece that falls on the lender. I can’t say enough great things about them. They’ve earned a customer for life. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy and/or sell.” – JD D. (Buyer)
“Zen and his team made selling our house the best experience ever. From start to finish Zen and Laura went above and beyond to help us throughout the process. I almost wish that I had another house to sell so that I could use them again. Best experience ever and I would recommend them 100%.” – Julie P. (Seller)
“Zen and his team helped me find my current home in the Rancho Santa Margarita area. Zen was through in presenting and educating me on the conditions of the market and helped me prepare in order to find the perfect home and have realistic expectations. Zen and his team were very personable and involved. My children and I are very happy with our home. Thank you Z Team for making the buying process so positive!” – Claudia W.
“I highly recommend Zen and the “Z-Team” to anyone and everyone living or considering living in the Orange County area. Prompt, professional and pleasant!
Leland and Steven are a great help as well and work around your schedule. All in all, a great experience for a first time home buyer! – Tyler C. (Buyer)
“Working with Z Team of OC at exceeded any of my expectations. Zen, Leland, Steven and Mindy are rock stars! As a first time home buyer, we were not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away, Zen and his team were incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with my fiance and I to determine what would be a good fit for us. We met on multiple occasions to go over the process and contract before we even look at homes. They even recommended multiple lenders in the area which we vetted out. This was a HUGE value add to us as we didn’t want to go through a big bank. Z team was more than willing to meet us late in the evening, on the weekends and early in the morning. If we ever had a question about ANYTHING, we could email anybody on the team and we would get a response very fast. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Z Team!” – Michelle J.
“Zen, Steven and Mindy have been amazing. They made a stressful relocation go smoothly. Furthermore, because of them we were able to secure the perfect house in the area we adore. The Z team is responsive, knowledgeable, professional, friendly, patient and lots of other good things. They truly cared to make sure my family was HAPPY, not just satisfied or content. I highly recommend the Z team!” – Julee G (Buyer)
“The Z Team makes buying a home so simple and easy! Zen, Steven, Leland and Mindy go above and beyond to make sure the home buying process is enjoyable and fun. Zen and his team take a different approach to real estate and we were very impressed. As a first time home buyer, you’re always worried about something. With the Z Team, we were always in the know! Whenever we called, emailed or texted; we got very fast, if not immediate responses. We sat down with the team, went through the home buying contract and talked about everything we could expect during the process. The Z Team has processes in place to give the buyer/seller reassurance as to where they are in the process. I’ve never seen a team so organized. As a whole, they have over 40 years worth of real estate knowledge!
Once we gave them the criteria of the home we were looking to purchase, they went to work on the MLS. We NEVER aimlessly drove around looking for homes for sale. We ALWAYS had a list of homes we were going to see, which fit our criteria. Leland always came prepared with documentation and the best driving route so we maximized our time.
It was a short 30 days before we put an offer in. Zen helped us strategically craft an offer that the buyer couldn’t refuse. Zen and his team went to bat for us in everything they did. They went above and beyond what a realtor is responsible for. We were renting a property and still had a month left. The Z Team helped us get out of our lease AND they showed the home to other renters. They handled that entire process as well!
I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Zen, Steven, Leland and Mindy. Everybody always said that buying a home was difficult and stressful… NOT with the Z Team! Thanks again!” – Jordan B.
