    Zen

     

    “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.

     

    Zen and his team were wonderful during the selling process. I was kept apprised of everything that was happening and if I had a question or concern, it was always answered in a timely manner. I was at work most days during this process and the Z Team helped remove any anxiety that I had. Their knowledge of the real estate market was awesome. They kept me on track, had taken beautiful professional pictures of my home, and staged a welcoming open house. My home received multiple offers and was sold above asking price. Thanks Zen, Mindy, Gigi and all the others behind the scenes. You have truly worked as a team to make my experience great. Thanks again.” – Judy Pollard (Seller)

     

    “Working with Zen and his team was awesome!!! From my first meeting with Zen they made it all about me. They wanted to know about my family and our hobbies. Our likes and dislikes, to get an idea of what homes to show. They hit it dead on the head the first time out. The minute I stepped foot into the second home they showed me I knew it was the one. I love my new home and am excited for everyone to see it. Thank you to the Z Team for giving my family a wonderful home for new life experiences and growth.” – Meter Wharton (Buyer)

     

    “Our experience with Zen and his team was top notch from the moment they responded to our inquiry on one of their websites (which was within moments).
    To say they exceeded our expectations would be an understatement: Zen’s communication, responsiveness, & genuine care for our best interest was extraordinary. We knew immediately that we were dealing with high-level professionals, and they never let us down through the entire roller-coaster ride of our home search. We have been raving about them from the beginning and will continue to do so. We simply cannot thank them enough.” – Bruce & Jennifer Bowen (Buyer)

     

    “Zen Ziejewski was Smart, Savvy and Professional. He Returns phone calls in a timely fashion. We have used his team’s services multiple times for both buying and selling homes over the years. Zen’s knowledge of the Orange County real estate market and market trends are outstanding. Don’t hesitate to trust his current market strategies with guaranteed results. YOU won’t be left hanging. You’ll achieve your goals and your desired outcome like we did. We could have not been Happier with Zen and his Team. You’d be silly not to hire them.”  – Kathleen McRivette (Buyer & Seller)

     

    “From my experience of getting to know Zen on a professional and personal level over the past eight years that he is a “Class Act”. When it comes to doing your due diligence on hiring the right licensed realtor you can stop right now and engage working with Zen Ziejewski. He will make it happen and get it done right for you.” – Darren Jacklin

     

    Zen was extremely knowledgeable about the process of selling a house, how to present it, and the proper pricing to sell it quickly. He was able to work directly with my contractor fixing up the home to make everything look amazing for the sale, and the future owners. He was able to help me at the most difficult time in my life, as I was finishing my master’s degree and my father had just passed away. I had no time myself to be directly involved with everything it took to get the house ready and sell it. Zen was able to do all of that, on his own and with minimal direction from me. I could not be happier with his service. Between his use of technology, knowledge of real estate and independent operation, Zen is simply the best and I would recommend him to anyone.” – Daniel Quick (Seller)

     

    Zen & Chuck

     

    We felt very taken care of with Chuck. He is professional, thorough and very knowledgeable so we trusted him through every step of the way. The escrow process can be a stressful time with a lot of details to keep track of and important questions to ask, but with Chuck as our agent we were relaxed and knew we could trust any advice he gave us – that is so important!” — Maryam F. 
    VERY THOROUGH AND PROFESSIONAL. Chuck and his team are very thorough and professional. Would recommend to anyone looking to either buy or sell.” — Frank and Connie L. 

    HE KNOWS THE MARKET, LISTENS AND UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU WANT! Chuck Harper represents the best example of a professional real estate agent. He knows the market, listens and understands what you want but most of all he keeps the buyer informed throughout the whole process.Buying a house can be stressful but Chuck made the buying experience enjoyable. I definitely will use him in the future and would recommend him to home buyers of all ages, whether it is your first home or your fifth home!” — Sandy C.

     

    TRUST US…GO WITH CHUCK. We lucked out when a friend referred us to Chuck. My wife and two young kids were moving from the east coast to southern California, so getting this move right was a big deal.Several months before we flew out to look at properties we spoke with Chuck several times to review the attributes for our future home. He was always responsive and communicative.We flew out to California and had only three days to find a place. The short time crunch didn’t phase Chuck since he had been working behind the scenes well before our arrival.With Chuck’s help we quickly narrowed our search and soon thereafter the deal was done. Trust us…go with Chuck, you won’t regret it.”  — Peter and Erin M.

     

    WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY! Chuck went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us find our way through the complications of the home buying experience. We’re very grateful for his helpfulness, insight, and professionalism. ” — Michael and Susan J.

     

    HE WAS THE PERFECT MAN FOR THE JOB! Chuck Harper was recently my listing agent for the sale of my condo in Aliso Viejo. He was the perfect man for the job because he helped me set the price, spent 2 weekends personally sitting there for open houses, had a wonderful photographer take great photos of my home that made it look it’s absolute best, printed great flyers & did everything a top notch professional Real Estate Agent does for a valued client. He helped me set the initial price, which was higher than any units had ever sold for in my community.  My home did have the biggest & most attractive back yard with an amazing view in the entire community. His guidance & expertise helped us find a qualified buyer in less than a week and they didn’t just pay the list price but $1000.00 over list price! That’s a record high in my neighborhood.

    I felt very confident that Chuck had my back all through the selling process and he kept me updated regularly. Overall I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice of having Chuck Harper my listing agent and I encourage anyone selling their home to list with Chuck and the Z Team at Keller Williams. The entire team helped me through the process from start to finish with Chuck as my Team Captain. — Janice R.

     

    BELIEVE ME, CHUCK IS THE BEST. If you are looking for someone who looks out for you, then Chuck is the best.  I have purchased at least 20 homes from rental property to primary residence etc.  I am pretty experienced in home buying and selling, and Chuck is the tops for looking out for you, as he really came through for me, when the chips were down.

    In April, 2019 I bought a home in Anaheim using him as my agent.  Let’s start with the offer.  There were 3 offers on this wonderful home and 2 more waiting.  Chuck was relentless in getting our position in 1st place.  Early on, the contact with the other agent was vital in getting us considered 1st. We had a contingency to sell our home.

    The buyers of our home also had a buyer, so our position was not ideal, but Chuck got us in there.  It must have been just determination and his ability to connect with others.   You will see once you speak with him.

    Well, he made the connection, and we were on our way with a 35 day escrow, even though we had just accepted an offer on our home.  During the escrow there were many instances where Chucks negotiating expertise came into play, like request for repairs, move in/out dates etc.  Also as a sideline, the home inspector he has is phenomenal.  I am a low voltage contractor and his guy did an exceptional job for me.  Many inspection reports are full of fluff and BS.  His inspection was on point, understandable and thorough, and was critical in my evaluation of the new home.

    Next let’s talk about Possession.   Possession usually takes place on close of escrow, so that means we would have to rent a hotel while the buyers of my buyers closed, then my buyers closed, and then I would close with the sellers of my house.  I had possession of my current home close of escrow plus 3 days, which gave me some leeway.  We also negotiated some extra time so that I did not have to rent a hotel and I had a day or 2 to get my new home ready.  Chuck was in touch with my selling agent during the process to make sure I was covered with removing contingencies and possession etc.

    So in order to not make this too long, I am grateful for Chuck’s determination,  and his looking out for me and my wife during the 30 day escrow.
    Just one last thing.  I needed some help after the escrow closed with my home warranty company, and Chuck was there.  This was a month after our transaction had closed. Believe me, Chuck is the BEST.” — Vince and Irene C

    I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL IT WAS TO WORK WITH CHUCK. I just bought my dream house with Chuck Harper as my agent. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Chuck. He had my back during the entire house buying process and he helped me negotiate to get a good price for the house I really wanted to buy. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, professional, punctual, helpful, & an all around a great guy and the perfect person to be on my side during the entire process. Chuck kept me very informed and up to date during the entire escrow and he also recommended and arranged a great inspector that was very thorough and charged less than most so even this was so easy for me as the buyer.

I will be selling my current home soon and I will definitely use Chuck as my listing agent.” — Janice R.

     

    CHUCK IS AN EXCEPTIONAL AGENT, I CAN’T SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH OF HIM. We were planning to sell our home. We saw a home that sold very rapidly in our area and Chuck’s name was on the sold sign. We got his number off the sign and gave him a call we listed our home immediately with him. Our home has sold and closed!!  Chuck is an exceptional agent I can’t speak highly enough of him. Chuck had an open house every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 and that’s exactly how we sold our home. So when he tells you, that you need to have an open house, trust him.Chuck is so patient he never lost his patience with us no matter what we asked of him, or how nervous we were. He is one of the most ethical and honest men you’ll ever meet and he will always have your best interest at heart.Chuck is a “preeminent professional”, having him as our agent was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We appreciate all he did for us, use him to sell your home you won’t be disappointed!!!” — Constance and Jon A.
