Alison Huddy and her husband Jason are great real estate agents. Their expertise is in Northeast Los Angeles (Atwater, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, and more). I originally started looking for a property at the beginning of 2015 with a different agent and made many, many offers that were all rejected. I felt as though something was missing in the process the previous agent didn't give me very good tips or advice during our trips to open houses, and she also was not able to make it to more than half of the open houses I wanted to see. Alison, on the other hand, made herself very available to me which was extremely important especially as I was a first time homebuyer. She filtered out houses that she thought would meet my criteria and even went ahead to see the houses before we went together. As you can imagine, this saved me a lot of time as I'm usually not able to see any open houses during the weekday due to work. She gave me tips that were definitely helpful tips on whether the house would be easy to sell in the future, tips on location of property, etc. To top it off, she has a great bubbly personality that makes you love seeing her every single weekend for those open houses.mIn the end, her many years of experience helped me to purchase a house of my dreams, in less than 2 months of working together! She used several tactics that I found very smart. Imagine if I had started off with her! Throughout the very stressful escrow process, Alison was there with me every step from inspections to loan appraisal. I highly recommend Alison if you are looking to buy a property in Los Angeles.
Alison and Jason were referred to us from friends who had just gone through the process of buying their first home and from our very first meeting, we had complete trust in them we were grateful to have them guide us through every step of the process. I'm a super anxious person and can be pretty high-strung so naturally, the home buying process drives me pretty crazy but Alison and Jason were fantastic at rationalizing with me, a crazy person, and managed my expectations throughout the process. We had just lost a bid on a condo when Alison called and said "I have a good feeling about this one, it just listed" and because tons of scheduling conflicts prevented my husband and me from finding a time to make it out together, she set up an appt for each of us. She was right. We found our home. Then of course the anxiety went through the roof through the bidding war, the escrow, etc. and she and Jason were patient enough to do things like explain exactly what an "escrow" is a couple times over and savvy enough to recommend the right strategy to win the house, get through escrow, and get us into the house. Open communication, deep knowledge of the market, strategic, and effective negotiation are all reasons why they're so good at what they do. Patience and guidance are why they are so good with first time home buyers like us. (Well, we're pros now, thanks to A and J Huddy!)
Alison and Jason are amazing! We worked primarily with Alison as our buying agent for our very first home and she was invaluable during this whole journey. With such a huge purchase that entails long-term effects, we really needed someone that (a) we could trust and (b) understood the needs and wants of our lifestyle. We totally got that with Alison (and her husband Jason too!). She immediately knew the neighborhoods and houses we wanted to a tee, and had a great sense of style for decorating or renovation options we never would've been able to picture. One of the best parts of working with Alison and Jason is their commitment to their clients. As nervous first time buyers we called a lot. Whether we had a question about houses we saw come up Redfin, offer prices, inspections, lenders, even home insurance providers she was always patient, thorough, and incredibly helpful. They made time to go see houses or attend inspections on their days off. They even took our calls about mortgage rates while attending a wedding! Whenever we had doubts or concerns we knew we could contact Alison and we'd get straight answers and some peace of mind. She was also helpful in the escrow process getting us the best credit possible and helping us extend our escrow at the last minute. Alison and Jason are great to have on your team I wholeheartedly recommend them!
I happened to meet Alison at a neighborhood open house when I was casually looking at houses on the market. We clicked right away she is so warm, funny, and easy to talk to, so I called her when I got serious. I went through this process by myself feeling totally clueless about the market, the process, how to negotiate, and was lucky to have her hold my hand every step of the way. I was very much a house buying novice in a heightened state of overwhelmed panic, but Alison answered my numerous questions about everything I could not wrap my brain around! I work long hours, but she would make herself available late at night for a debriefing after I had submitted an offer on a place. Even during a very long escrow, and crazy things happening like losing funding, having to find a new lender, verifying permits, etc., she was always there to patiently walk me through the process. Fast forward to after we finally closed on the place I loved and wanted I still had tons of questions on who to call to fix it! Again, I'm not quite sure what I would have done those early days of home ownership she provided the guidance I needed. I can't say enough amazing things about the home buying process with the Huddys!
Buying a house in LA is no mean feat, especially if you have zero experience and of limited means. I can't imagine how we'd have done this without Alison and Jason. We'd been working with another realtor for a few months and had a feeling that we weren't making progress. We decided to cut our losses and found these guys on Yelp. This was the best decision we made in the whole process. Alison's the front woman of this business and she is just brilliant. Watching her in action at a showing is an education take notes! She is proactive, persistent, charming, her expert knowledge and experience is invaluable. When our appraisal came back under offer, Alison pulled out all the stops and got us a new loan company at the 11th hour. She is just extraordinary. Plus her and Jason are also really wonderful people, which is such a lovely bonus. I can't recommend Alison and Jason enough. They will guide you, champion you, look out for you and make it happen. We moved in this weekend to our first home and it's all thanks to these guys.
Maybe you will be like me clueless, overwhelmed, and unnerved, the sweat from your palms seeping through the 10 pamphlets from the 10 open houses you've been to in 3 hours. But hopefully you will find Alison, and she will guide you out of that dark tunnel. Alison Huddy is the best. She's personable, patient, smart, funny, magnetic, and completely dedicated to helping her clients find their perfect match. Going into it, I had no idea, except that I wanted to live on the East Side. Alison helped me do my homework. She's never pushy, and she answers every call. She has a thorough understanding of the East Side and the market in general, and has worked with international clients before. And she's on good terms with other realtors. Alison has great taste and is extremely discerning she only sent me houses that she knew I would like. And she knows how to recognize true love and that's still how I feel, true love everyday, as I gaze at my happy home. It's all Alison. If I could put a hundred stars, I would.
Alison and Jason made it possible for us to achieve our dream of owning a home. If not for the Huddys, we would not own a home, there's no question in my mind. Referred to us by a dear friend, working with Alison and Jason was the best decision we've made in a long time. Like many young couples, we've saved for years to buy a home, and were nervous to be "active" on the market. Alison and Jason were patient, made sure we saw the range of the real estate landscape available to us, and then pushed us when we needed it. They answered every question, made us feel totally secure, and ultimately helped us buy an amazing home in Eagle Rock. Alison and Jason are great for first time home buyers and seasoned real estate pros alike. They clearly are on the pulse of the LA market, and they're straight shooters, we were clearly in great hands. I'll never work with another realtor, we're Huddy fans for life.
Alison is just the best! It's so critical to find an agent that knows the area, has great relationships with other agents, is responsive and available, and really focuses on what's right for you. Alison has all of that and she's simply one of the kindest people I've ever met. I really never thought I could own a home in LA but as soon as I began talking with her it quickly became real! She provided a number of listings as she learned what I was looking for in a home and because she knows the market so well, was able to really guide me into what was a great deal and also how to approach putting in my offer. She's made the whole process effortless. Her recommendations for mortgage lenders, inspectors, etc. were all spot on, too. My sale ended up having a 21 day escrow and it wouldn't have been possible without her help.
Alison and Jason helped me close on my first home a week or so ago. I am a first time homeowner and I was surprised at how smooth the process was compared to other stories I had heard and most of that is down to Alison and Jason's help. They walked me through every step of the process, from talking about what I was looking for in a house and initial bids that went very quickly all the way through setting up inspections and going back and forth with the seller to reach the best possible deal for me. I also had a ton of questions come up during every step and they were always helpful and patient. In the end, their vast experience with the LA house market got me my first house on a tight schedule and for a great deal! If you are looking for a house in LA, I cannot recommend the Huddys more highly!
I just bought a condo in Downtown Los Angeles with Alison's superb help. I'd originally started my search with a friend and we were looking for investment property. That morphed into me looking for a single-family home on the East Side and then that morphed into me realizing that, really, I always wanted to live downtown. At the end of the day, we found the perfect place for me and Alison was a tremendous champion the whole way through. She's smart, funny, and really dialed in to the marketplace. She's also really patient. I didn't see even one eye roll from her as I shifted my plan over and over again. I'd highly recommend Home Sweet Huddy to anyone looking in the Los Angeles area. You won't regret it!
These guys are the best! Gave excellent advice throughout the whole process, I really trusted that they had our best interests in mind, they did a lot of hand holding (which we needed!) and made the experience of buying a house a really smooth and happy one. Buying a house is an extremely emotional process and Alison really made sure we felt good at every step (she'd make a great therapist). She was so attentive and went out of her way to make sure we had all the resources we needed. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a house in LA. They really know their stuff and they are so easy to work with. Thank you guys for making our dream come true!
The Huddy's are amazing. They're a power house real estate team that you want in your corner. Their knowledge, insight and experience prove to be just what you need to buy and sell in this crazy LA market. We recently sold our condo and bought a home with them in the North East LA area. While we had the usual stress of this process, they were quick to offer advice, call us down and handle the business. We cannot say enough about how awesome these guys are and how thankful we are to have had them represent us on the transactions. Buying and selling is tough when inventory is low. Do yourselves a favor and hire them so you have one less thing to worry about.
Alison was a joy to deal with from the start. As first-time homebuyers we had many questions and were quite eager and anxious and Alison deftly handled all of our needs. When we came up against some static during escrow, she was there for us when we needed her with clear explanation and comforting consolation! Aside from being smart, fun, friendly and patient, Alison was on it and we feel she fought for us and got us some great relief from the sellers! Definitely meet with Alison and Jason if you're considering buying a home especially if it's your first time. We love the Huddy!
Alison and Jason and real state wizards! They are a great duo and are experts in the East Side LA housing market. We were first time home buyers, and were overwhelmed by the LA market. Every house in our price range was also being looked at by hundreds of other people. Alison and Jason helped answered our emails and calls day and night, helped us find a house in the neighborhood we wanted to be in, and negotiated a deal where we were able to buy a house below asking price. We also closed in less than 30 days. If when we sell or buy another home we will be calling the Huddys.
Alison helped us find our little home 5 years ago now and we are still in touch. I write this on the anniversary of our purchase, one that we are so glad we made and so thankful for Alison's help. As first time homeowners, Alison really lead us through the process. We had had a bad experience with another realtor, and she helped us get passed and over that. More importantly, knowing our budget and what we were looking for, she introduced us to a part of town we would never have found otherwise, Eagle Rock the little town we still call home.
I bought my first house this past October with Alison and Jason. I'd always heard that buying a house was one of the most stressful things you can do but honestly they made it painless. I really loved working with them. They really listen to what you are looking for, have strong opinions, your interest at heart, and really great to spend your day with driving around looking at houses. (Also, the first house I saw was the one I ended up buying. So it really goes to show how much they listen to you when you are describing what you're looking for).
Alison was absolutely outstanding. As someone who came from a family with two realtor parents, I knew I was going to be picky. Alison was professional and friendly, always. The most surprising moment came when we were caught in a bidding war. Alison shed the sweet demeanor that she had always displayed with us, and really drove a hard bargain with the other agent. Friendly but firm, and a great negotiator. We are now in our dream house and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend Alison and Jason Huddy! They made the process of looking for, and purchasing our first home lovely. Alison patiently explained the whole process multiple times and went to bat for us whenever we needed it, whether it was in negotiations, scheduling a quick escrow, or simply getting our offer prioritized in the highly competitive LA market. I could go on, but instead I will just say again that I highly recommend the Huddy's. They are just great at what they do.
Alison helped me buy my first house and she was very patient throughout the whole process. We must have looked at dozens of homes over a year and a half of searching. When we finally went in to contract, Alison helped make sure all the necessary steps and inspections were taken. Buying a house can seem very daunting and confusing Alison was always a text away when I wasn't sure what to do or what the next step was. Thanks Alison and Jason!
Alison and Jason just helped me buy my first home! I will 100% be working with them again. From the house hunting process to closing, Alison and Jason were helpful in walking me through each step and giving constructive advice. I am so glad I had such knowledgeable and available agents who really cared about helping me through this for my first home purchase. They made a very stressful process smooth and helped ease all my fears.
