To Whom It May Concern:
When I needed an agent, to sell my house, in Glendale, I immediately thought of Addora Beall, because she was the seller’s agent when we purchased the house in 2007. At that time, she was very knowledgeable of the Glendale market, and demonstrated that she had her client’s best interest in mind. I wanted that same level of attention for my sale.
She came to me with a well thought out marketing plan, for my property, with a detailed schedule. She assisted me in making a decision on the listing price. She advised me on preparations needed to show the house, and recommended the best time to list. Her predictions on the offers we would expect were spot on. I received a better price than expected and it sold faster than anticipated.
Addora was truly full service and was always available for my questions. She was there for every showing, walk through and inspection. I did not need to attend any of these activities.
Addora made this sale as easy as possible, from start to finish. I recommend her services to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Glendale or the surrounding communities.

MY REALTOR was Addora Beall, who I KNOW is a pro, and she gives ALL POSSIBLE SCENARIOUS to her clients so that they can make the best possible decision. I take many opinions into consideration in making a decision, though ultimately for doing Real Estate transactions in Glendale, I default to trusting Addora Beall’s guidance and opinion. She just sold my luxury home in the Glendale hills and did not leave ANY of my money "on the table". She gave great advice, spent lots of her own money on marketing, and is a keen negotiator with the other brokers."

I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank you!" It's been a year since we first met and I have to say that I made the right choice when I selected you to represent me in the sale of my father's house. From our very first meeting, you were extremely professional, very knowledgeable and very understanding about the circumstances surrounding the sale of my father's home.
I was so impressed with how smoothly everything went. You went the extra mile in preparing the house to sell. You made sure it looked the very best and it did. I couldn't believe it when you said you had 59 offers in the first 3 days it was on the market! And then when you said you got $75,000 over the asking price, I couldn't believe it! That must be some kind of record!
Thank you for doing an excellent job, Addora! I am happy to recommend you with the utmost confidence that you will treat all of your clients the way you treated me, and do an excellent job for them too.
I wish you much success in the coming year!

Thank you so much for all your valuable help in selling my home at 1459 El Miradero in Glendale, Ca.
You were always there to walk me through all stages of the transaction. You answered all my questions and were always available by phone or text.
I would highly recommend you to any and all regardless of selling a property or buying a property.
Your professionalism, honesty and integrity is so refreshing.
We bought a Single Family home in 2005 in Northwest Glendale, Glendale, CA. & sold our home in Rossmoyne, CA the same year. Addora currently manages our rental property in Northwest Glendale for us. We've known Addora for years now and would use no other agent. She is beyond helpful. Even years after buying our house , she still help us whenever we need recommendations for builders, plumbers etc. She knows the Glendale area like the back of her hand and has years and years of experience, and it shows. Her confidence and expertise is one of the main reasons we use her and will continue to do so.

I have known Addora for many years. She stands out as a true professional. What is a "true professional?" My definition is a person who not only understands their market, but has mastered it. This way when a client is buying or selling, they have complete confidence in their REALTOR.
Addora has an eye for how a house should be marketed, as she knows her market and market demographics. She has a vast network of REALTORS she works with, so the proverbial "word-of-mouth" communication is superb. As Addora is a native Glendale resident (as am I), she knows "past Glendale", and "Glendale present". This is tantamount to connective communication with clients of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicity, and their subject property. I can highly recommend Addora. I would encourage any serious buyer or seller to interview her for proper Real Estate representation.

Highly likely to recommend
I have had five real estate transactions with Addora Beall. The first was in 2004 when Addora represented me in purchasing a single family home that I intended to use as a rental. Several building permit issues arose during escrow, but Addora successfully arranged to have them all cured at the seller's expense prior to the close of escrow. She also assisted in negotiation of the lease with the first tenants.
In recent years, and on my recommendation, she represented one of my clients who was trustee of a trust, in listing and selling a house in Burbank that was an asset of the trust. The property had to be sold in order to make distributions to the beneficiaries. Long-standing problems between the trust's beneficiaries could have jeopardized the sale, but Addora was helpful in going beyond the call of duty in helping to defuse potential problems. She was able to obtain an over the asking price for two of the properties, despite them having deferred maintenance issues.
And in the last 12 months I have recommended two more of my clients to Addora. One was a rather difficult family trust that she handled impeccably and the other is a probate sale that required court confirmation. She is knowledgeable, consistent in her excellent work, and I know I can count on her to do an excellent job for me and for those I refer to her.
I highly recommend Addora Beall as she is very professional in her approach and friendly and easy to work with.

Addora is an excellent Realtor who has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the housing market in Glendale and surrounding communities. Like all good realtors, she is never more than a phone call or email away and was very thorough and dedicated through our home-buying process, taking the lead in negotiations when necessary and alerting us in advance to issues that would come up in the transaction and documentation process. Our home-buying process was very smooth in large part due to Addora’s help.
Kevin Fordyce 91206
Highly recommend -Addora helped me find and purchase my current home in Glendale. I paid $1,500,000 for it. I was very impressed with her expertise and familiarity with the local real estate market (which isn't surprising since she grew up in Glendale). Most importantly, Addora was very attentive to my "wish list" and worked tirelessly to find a suitable home for me-- I'm very happy here, and I would definitely recommend her!
Sincerely, Ruben Aquino- Glenoaks Canyon 91206
Thank you so much for the efficient and smooth job you did for us buying our new house and selling our old one. We loved that you were personal and friendly with us yet very professional, experienced and extremely hard working. Your thoroughness and integrity were a big comfort; we did not worry that things were not being done the right way. No doubt about it, Addora, you were on top of everything and this is why both sales went through without a hitch. We would highly recommend you to our friends and certainly look you up if we move again. We are very happy in our new home. Thanks again for a job well done.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for everything that you have done, and to tell you how much we appreciated all of the hard work you put into the purchase of our new home and again, two years later representing us as our listing agent when we sold it. You did an excellent job both times.
As difficult as this housing market has been for us, we know that having you as our agent made all the difference. Whether it was rooting out listings within the first few hours or the stupendous job that you did in communication with the sellers and their agent, your professionalism and aggressive attention to detail made this a pleasant and trouble free process. When it was time for us to sell, your excellent negotiating skills ensured that we got the best price for our home!
Best wishes for the future and keep up the good work.
Sincerely, Jeff and Cathy Lowe, Montrose
Represented them on the purchase of their home and two years later, listed and sold the same home for them.
I'm writing to commend the work of your agent, Addora Beall. Addora was thorough in determining what I was looking for and immediately came up with selections. She was wholly my advocate and was thorough in pointing out the positive and negative aspects of the various properties we visited. After weeks of trying to find someplace on my own, Addora found me a wonderful home in one day.
I put an offer on the house the same day. I was so pleased with her work on my new purchase that I also asked her to sell my condominium. Once again, the sale was handled with amazing speed. I had many good offers to choose from and closed without having to make any major repairs or improvements.
If any of your other clients are looking for references, I whole heartedly recommend Addora. Your clients could not be in better hands.
Just a note of thanks for the professional way you handled the sale of our home and also our new purchase. I believe your marketing plan was key to getting our home sold quickly and for the best price. We always knew what was happening next because you really follow that plan!
I know I have told you this before, but I really think your brochures and advertising stand out above all the rest. Your personal attention to the details of marketing a home were evident on many levels such as the time you took writing about the amenities of our home for the brochure and for the advertising. I was impressed with your personal oversight of everything. For example, when the professional photographer came and took pictures of our home, you were there too. You made sure it was just right. You surround yourself with a top notch team and it shows in every aspect of the transaction from beginning to end.
We are happy to recommend you to anyone, knowing they will receive the same excellent service I did.
John & Pamela Gray
Thank you so much for calling me this morning. I must tell you, you have been brilliant through this entire thing and have held me together more than you know. I wouldn't think of working with another person to find a house and I will most certainly send you referrals as I get them.
Thanks again, Addora! You don't go through things like this always liking your agent as much as you did when you started... but we like you even more and have experienced first hand how talented and loyal you are!
Much love, Amiee Klem

I wanted to take this opportunity to personally say “thank you” for all of your hard work on my behalf. With schedules as busy as they are, you were never too busy to take my calls and answer my ridiculous and endless questions. Your knowledge of the real estate market, and your connectedness with the Realtor community helped us out tremendously. Your attention to detail and integrity put my mind at ease.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants a true professional in their court. You rendered exemplary service and for that I am forever grateful.
Sincerely, Bill Hunt , July 14, 2011
My wife and I would like to thank you for your diligent and sensitive way in helping walk us through the challenging home buying experience of this new era. We congratulate you for your utmost professionalism and adaptation to these new home buying rules and challenges. We certainly would not have done it without your commitment and effort.
Best wishes to you,

Well, here we are at the conclusion of a 2-year cooperative “team” effort to finally be able to purchase the “house on the hill of our dreams”. Without you it would have never come to fruition.
As you know, I grew up on Kenneth Road in Glendale, and always wanted, “some day”, to own a single-story home up on Deermont . What is now known as “mid-century”. My wife grew up in Glendale as well, in the “Verdugo Woodlands” area.
When we first started looking about 2 years ago, the very house we have now purchased was on the market and had just sold prior to you starting to show us properties. If only we had been in the market two weeks earlier!
Well, as you know better than anyone, you never, never gave up on the property, knowing this was the house we wanted.
You showed us various properties over the two-year time span, all the time you dropping in “I know we need to find a house just like the Deermont house”. You knew what all our parameters were, and kept a close watch.Well, much to our surprise and delight, the “Deermont house” became available for sale. You found out about it even before it hit the M.L.S.
We won’t go into the details, but lest to say that making this sale come together was indeed “an act of patience and persistence” on your part. The title “coordinator” would well define on of the many “hats” you wore during this transaction. Despite all that was thrown your way, you forged ahead and let nothing affect you. You removed “road blocks”, personally handled setting up multiple inspections, met with the sellers realtor on several occasions, and more. I just can’t say all that you did. In a world where too often a REALTOR is just a title, you exemplified it as a PROFESSION.
As you know, during this entire transaction we were at our other house in San Diego (we maintain 2 residences), and you “took the ball” and made everything roll right along. You were also there for all escrow, title, signing – well, I can’t really remember all of it – but you were there!
My father once told me “10% of the people in business make 90% of the money because they earned by being a professional”. You not only deserve what you earned, but other potential clients must know of what you do to earn it.
My wife and I have owned multiple corporations with scores of employees over the last 25 years. We know first-hand that in every large company, you can find a few people that “shine”. You are one such person.
As my wife and I now sit atop the hills of Glendale, looking over the magnificent panoramic views you always reminded us that we would someday have, it becomes apparent that Addora Beall isn’t really in the real estate business, she is in “the people business”. This is what separates the words “job” and “career”.
Please feel free to distribute or post this letter as you see fit for prospective clients. More people need to know how special you are.
Randy and Retha Sottile, March 2007- when he purchased 1960 Deermont Rd., 91207
This letter is long overdue to say the very least. As I ponder over the last year of all of my many blessings I look upon you as my saving grace. In October I was on the verge of losing my house when my best friend said she had the answers to my prayers. That answer came in the form of you, Addora. My best friend, who has impeccable taste, and will only surround herself with people of excellent character and integrity referred me to you.
When you came to meet with me, you were warm, understanding and listened to my sad situation.
You listed my house in a down market, and sold it in three weeks! You put your years of experience, your professionalism and excellent marketing plan to work and got the job done in record time for an excellent price.
I was certain from the beginning – Day 1 that I could not have been in more qualified hands. From then on I had nothing to worry about; you took care of every detail.
Without you, Addora, I would not have had the opportunity for a fresh beginning. My gratitude for you, my angel is endless. I will shout it from every mountain top THIS IS THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT IN THE WORLD. If anyone wants their house sold you are the only one that I would trust. You have a flawless character and impeccable morals. All I can say is that I am honored to know you, and will be forever grateful to you for selling my home.
Thank you for making a miserable situation an opportunity for growth and a new beginning.
Sincerely, Robyn Alexandre, Jacaranda St., Burbank
