What our clients are saying  

Sandy is a true professional. One key attribute is Sandy's team; they are stellar and committed to providing the best a seller can expect from agent. Lastly, we always knew Sandy had our best interest at heart, and the results reflected it.


~ J. Greer

We had a long escrow as a buyer and Sandy was right there with us. She was the sellers agent as well, which you would think would be easier but found that the sellers were a little difficult to work with. But Sandy, with her always cheery disposition, used her negotiating skills and creativity worked with the sellers to help them understand our situation and agree to sell to us. She made herself available to ensure all the inspections and work on the house was taken care of to our satisfaction. We know behind every good leader is support personnel and Susan is that person. Susan seems to be Sandy's right hand person and is awesome to work with and is a true asset to the team. We are very grateful to the DeAngelis team and know that we will recommend them to anyone who asks about a real estate agent. GOD Bless.


~ James & Kelli Layne

Sandy has lived in my neighborhood longer than I have so her reputation is well established. I have know a number of people who have used Sandy in the past and all were ecstatic about her and what she had done for them in selling their house. Sandy has done a tremendous job with all aspects of the sell. Her advise and performance in getting our house sold and how best to market our house was invaluable. She is a very warm and creative agent who is unflappable, always positive and honest in the things she would tell us. Selling a house is very stressful, especially when you have lived there 20 years, but it was a distinct pleasure working with Sandy and her Group, all very capable, in assisting us in the sale. I highly recommend the DeAngelis Group as a first choice when entering into a real estate transaction.


~ S. Loft

Sandy kept me informed throughout working with my choice of escrows. I had moved to another state leaving the process in her hands. Good decision. It was sold very quickly in a matter of days.


~ Bill Murphy

We recent sold our home and Sandy De Angelis was our Agent. She and her staff were OUTSTANDIND! From the beginning we were so very impressed with her knowledge of our community, her plan in selling our home. and her assurance that she and her staff would be there from start to finish....and they were! Because of Sandy our home sold for top $. She worked with the seller to work out any problems with the house or sale. If we had any questions or concerns, I would call Sandy or her staff and they were ALWAYS there for me and my wife. Go with Sandy De Angelis!


~ Professor Brian Conley

Sandy DeAngelis and her team did an amazing job! Our deal was not easy- there was a lot of patience involved and they handled it smoothly and professionally. Always had our best interest.


~ K. Ledon

Sandy and her team are so wonderful to work with. Their expertise, level of communication, ability to work through difficult situations and patience is top tier. We are so happy with our new home. It wasn't the easiest home buying experience but with Sandy at the helm we are sure that was SO much better than it could have been. We feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Seven Gables Real Estate.


~ J. Wickersham

Two years ago,Sandy Deangelis and her dedicated team helped my husband and I buy our home in Santa Ana. When my mom died last year and we determined her house in Newport Beach would have to sell, Sandy was my first, and only choice to do the job. As timing and speed were crucial to this sale, Sandy and team put the "pedal to the metal", and got the job done. I am forever grateful for all the hard work and personal attention I received. I already hand out Sandy's business cards to people who need them, and I know who to call if ever we need real estate help again.


~ Donna Hewitt

Sandy DeAngelis is very professional and trustworthy. She works hard to meet your needs. Sandy has a great instinct of matching people with property. Sandy always makes time for you and I value her expertise. You won't go wrong working with Sandy, you really are in good hands.
