"We are an old couple who have done and seen a lot. However, we have never sold a house. We dreaded dealing with real estate agents and to follow their advice for improvements, piles of paperwork, personal involvement and 'house showings'.

A SoCal Home Buyers ad solved our "fears" and resulted in a beautiful, easy alternative. We sold the house fast, at a fair price and near zero effort and cost on our part. Thank you, way to go! We are happy and plan a big family vacation."

Mr. & Mrs. R Von Heeringen., Banning, CA

"The Process Was Quick, Easy & No-Hassle!"

Richard B., San Bernardino, CA

"I was very satisfied with how you handled the details of the house. My questions were thoroughly answered and your team was a big help. I was very satisfied with the price I received. I really thought it was going to be a lot of work.

Being that we were in North Dakota and the house was in California. I had your card at the house in California and I thought what have I got to lose? Everyone was so professional, which was a big help. The title company was a big help in filing out the paperwork. I'm just glad to be back home in North Dakota. Thank you for everything!"

Diane K., Apple Valley, CA

"From our first phone call everything went well. We actually cancelled
our appt. but Allison called us back & that turned out great. Glad she did. Escrow
was made painless with the help of a great staff, Kristen, Jaime, & Danielle.

This was very helpful as we live 6 hours away. First impressions are important & our
meeting with Gavino to look at the property & explain things set the tone for a very good experience. Many Thanks to the staff for your Hard Work."

Janie & David B., Hemet, CA

"I received multiple offers weekly over the past several years to sell my home, once I was ready to do so I called multiples of numbers. Although I received many competitive offers So Cal Home Buys felt right, they viewed the home, gave me an honest, expected quote without low-balling, and made the process simple and fast with no games or gimmicks."

Win-Win for everyone involved and much appreciated.

Thank you.

T Peterson., Cherry Valley, CA

So helpful and friendly on the phone; Then, Kristen, so quick to respond to my phone calls, questions & concerns; then valerie & others at Title 365. Very helpful & customer friendly.

Lastly, easy, efficient & personable when he stopped by to inspect the house. You've assembled a great team Doug, they serve you well! Thank you for your being so understanding of the situation here! Much appreciated. You can ensure that I will refer you every chance I get & then some!

I still can't believe that we closed on time with no issues? When does that ever happen anymore?

Super job to you all!"

Marilyn M., Victorville, CA

"Best experience in selling a property. From agreed on price to close of escrow. Good communication with little effort from me. I highly recommend."

Laura O., Perris, CA

"Our experience was top notch from beginning to end. Everyone treated both my Mom and me with courtesy and just helped out in getting all of the documents in order so that the sale would go smoothly. Lisa Parker, Valerie Barker and Brian Stroh rocked when we had even the smallest question or issue. We were offered top dollar for Mom's house and escrow began immediately, no hassle, nothing, just simply worked with us.

Thank you all for such a great experience in what was a hard decision to make in selling the family home."

Julie & Glenna S., Riverside, CA

"Doug: Thanks for making the sale of our house so painless. I appreciated Kristen checking in with me during Escrow. The people at Title 365 were efficient in handling the paperwork.

Jaime Blaisdell was great about staying in touch with them via email. Her prompting along with my phone calls got the paperwork completed and returned. It was great working with your company. I look forward to seeing pictures of the renovated house on the internet."

Therese C., San Diego, CA

"I sold my house to Doug in San Jacinto. He sent me a card in the mail and he did exactly what he said he would do. It really was a painless transaction, all I had to do was sign papers and pickup the check. I would recommend this company to anyone! It was done in 2 weeks and sold As-Is."

Robert G., San Jacinto, CA

"Lisa was wonderful. She was very responsive and efficient at keeping us updated every step of the way. From the moment I talked to her, I felt that she truly cared about our situation. That feeling continued after talking to Gavino and Doug. Thank you all!"

Caren C., San Jacinto, CA

"Working with SoCal Home Buyers made a bad experience so much better. Thank you Lisa and Kristen for being so wonderful!"

Keri A., Cabazon, CA

"We still can’t believe how simple the process was for us. Doug always returned calls and did what he said he would do. We would highly recommend working with him."

John L., Pomona, CA

"I needed to sell a home in Yucca Valley, Calif and I live in Colorado. I can only say that working with Doug's crew and working with Title365 was very very good. They made working from a distant state remarkably easy. I was a little worried, since this was a new process. They made it an easy and pleasant experience. The price that we agreed on was very fair and they did everything that they promised."

Fred J., Yucca Valley, CA

"My experience with Doug and his affiliates was great. After a loss in my family, I needed to sell the house quickly. Kristen, Valerie and Brian were more than helpful. I thought that because my situation was unique and out of the ordinary that the experience was going to be less than enjoyable, however, they handle the situation with extreme professionalism."

Nikki R., Hacienda Heights, CA

"The selling of our home went very smoothly. All done very quickly & professionally. You gave us a great bid making it easier to decide on which buyer to go with."

Richard M., Riverside, CA

“Doug’s approach to buying is simple and straight forward. He took the hassle OUT of a monumental task. When I had questions he followed up promptly. Doug was very accommodating. He is a man of his word. It seems too good to be true… but it IS true!”

Victoria H., Canyon Lake, CA

Doug, Valerie, Lisa and Kristen;

Thank you all for the help and professional work that you all have done for me to sell my home so quickly.  It was a pleasure doing business with you all.  I will definitely refer your company to anyone that wants to sell their property.  By the way---thank you so much for the cup of coffee---I’ve not had a starbucks before---now I know why---$5????

Joyce S., Colton, CA

"The whole experience was FANTASTIC! My parents would be so happy also! Thanks for your kindness at a difficult time!"

Sherrie C., Corona, CA

Living in South Carolina and trying to sell a house (probate) in California over the phone, I expected some monumental problems or at least some conflict of promises. Your staff “Lisa” sent me the contract to buy the house “as-is” and the process moved to the escrow company for completion with little or no pain. I felt the price was fair and consistent with the condition of the house. I wish more things in life would be this pleasant. Thank you!

Richard C., San Diego

"Three years ago, I sold my California property to Doug and his wife, Andrea. The transaction was simple, quick and very fair. Our communications have been forthright and pleasant. It is a joy to now count them as friends also.

It is without hesitation that I highly recommend the Van Soests to anyone who is considering them for a real estate transaction. They are fine people with high ethics and proven performance."

Kerry J., Riverside, CA

"This process & working with Doug & his team, was smooth & Easy!

What a relief to not worry about moving tenants out, fixing up home & then having to pay a realtor & closing costs. Instead, just filled out easy escrow paperwork & got check in mail all within 30 days! Would recommend highly!

P.S. I did already refer you to Bonnie Y., so she may be calling you!"

Linda E., Hesperia, CA

"I had a good experience selling my home. All who helped me did a great job."

Lois B., Hemet, CA


I can't thank you enough for your great attitude, patience and professionalism! When you first contacted me I wanted nothing to do with you or anyone else who tried to call me about the sale of my property.

After talking with you, you eased some doubts. I still had some hesitations to sell but you told me it's real easy and you'll be able to walk me through almost all of it.

I'm so glad I listened to you! You saved me thousands in realtor fees!!

Richard L., Hemet, CA

"I would just like to express my gratitude in making the selling of my house a flexible and worry-free process.  Doug was very patient and worked with my time frame in my moving process.  It was a pleasure to work with this company.

It has helped me experience some financial freedom with my debts and allowed me to move forward with another home for my growing family.  I will definitely refer friends, family and/or co-workers if they have any opportunities to sell their home.

I am very thankful for the fast, flexible service.  Thank you so much!!"

Cecilia S., Rialto, CA

"Easiest sale I ever made. Things went so smoothly. Was amazing. Thanks!"

Ronald F., Moreno Valley, CA

"Thank you so much for sending me your postcard regarding purchasing of my rental home. Doug was patient and understanding even when I was not. I owned this house because it was willed to me so any dealings brought back my painful loss.

I cannot express my gratitude to Doug and everybody involved for their patience and quick purchase!! Awesome guys! Now I am purchasing a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo 20 minutes from my home - cash - great investment where I can take care of it and be an in-state landlord!"

Carolyn W., Sun City, CA

“We are very pleased with the way you worked with us on selling our rented home in Apple Valley. The transaction was smooth and easy and simple. We like your way of doing business. Our renters were also pleased with the transition and seemed to like you as well.

We particularly appreciated the help of the escrow in assisting us in completing all the necessary paperwork.  We’ll be sure to recommend you to any of our California friends when they want to sell their homes.”

Mike & Virginia F., Apple Valley, CA

"I had to sell my Dad’s condo when he died in California. I lived 3000 miles away and knew no one in California. Got a letter from Doug Van Soest, and called him. After a couple of phone conversations about selling my condo, I knew he was the right choice. I needed a trustworthy, sensitive professional person to take care of the selling of the condo- Doug Van Soest did an amazing job! Thanks again!"

John H., Palm Springs, CA

“The Deal Went very smooth. We felt we were treated very fairly and everything went as Doug had told us it would. We also agreed to carry back a note which we appreciated as it helped us out tax wise. Please feel free to use us as positive referrals in the future.”

Sheldon V., Riverside, CA

"THANK YOU for purchasing my home in Long Beach and sending a "Thank you letter" with a starbucks gift card; I have already enjoyed a cup of coffee with the gift card.

You should know that everyone on your team starting with Lisa to the escrow closing team was kind and professional. I first of all personally appreciated the expediency of a response to my inquiry to sell my property via a phone call, an emailed offer, and an on-site visit. You should know that your team and contacts expediency and professionalism is what set you apart from the other investors.

Within 30 days any and all of my questions and concerns were answered, we entered and closed escrow, and I appreciated the personal and professional touch from start to finish!
if an opportunity comes up for me to refer you, or use you again myself, I will definitely call upon you and your team!"

Keep up the great work!

Marcia P., Long Beach, CA

SCHB is an awsome company. They were there all the time through the whole process. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone that wants efficient results at a bargain price.
Southern California Home Buyers all the way.

Jeffrey C., Palm Desert

Super service, Great Service, Good Follow Up with all People Involved.

Howard S., Apple Valley, CA

"A Very Professional Transaction"

Ron R., Compton, CA

I live out of state and wanted to sell the house. I met with several RE agents for an estimate (and 5-6% commission-for them). Decided I did not want to do any repairs or inspections so I called SoCal home buyers. The offer was comparable to estimates but with no repairs, warranties, or termite inspections, Doug was available any time if I had any questions.( We texted a lot).

Danielle from the office checked in with me every week. Fidelity Title did an excellent job - as I had many questions for them. They even found an acceptable notary less than a mile from my home! The entire process was fast and hassle-free.

Everything was done by e-mail or mail and I didn't have to make another trip to Calif. I had an excellent experience with SoCal home buyers and would recommend them. Thank you very much - Doug and Co.!!!

Joanne Z., Murrieta, CA

I was so stressed about selling my house and this being my 1st time i had no clue what i was doing. They made it so easy and understandable and kept me in the loop about everything i felt like i was dealing with friends it was a truly fantastic experience.

Ashley F., La Quinta, CA
