Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Foothill Ranch, CA.
Sal helped my husband and I find our dream home. He was incredibly patient and we never felt rushed. He is very knowledgeable and always made us feel comfortable with every step of the process. When it came time to negotiate, he scored us an amazing deal. Unlike other realtors who just want their cut, we felt like Sal really cared, and he wanted us to find the perfect home at the perfect price. We can't say enough great things about him. We would recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Mission Viejo, CA.
Sal helped my wife and I to negotiate the waters of home buying at the most critical and impactful moment in recent history. Starting with me as a skeptical novice with very little knowledge of the industry and an overwhelming fear of losing my shorts on this critical purchase, Sal patiently and expertly explained the process, gained my confidence through an easy manner, and backed it all up with solid experience.It was very easy working with Sal, and at no point in the home buying process did I feel uninformed, behind the curve, or not fully in control of what was happening. It truly was cool to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Sal to help me with the Herculean process of buying my DREAM HOME, which I have now, thanks to his help, successfully done.Sit down and talk with this guy. He knows what he's doing, and he will listen to your concerns and help you find a perfect place.

The search for our home led us to a new construction house. Sal took us through some interesting challenges in working with a newer builder, and as a result we have a home that we love. Sal was also super in helping us sell our old home. His stagers and photographers really made the place sparkle. We couldn't have been happier with the five offers in one weekend that he helped us to sort through and choose the best fit. Sal also put up with us - we're tough customers and he was very patient in answering all our questions and always did the research to help us find the answers we needed. We're hoping the new house is the 30 year house, but we will recommend Sal to anyone looking for their next home

Sal was the perfect real estate agent! He was willing to go see houses on the drop of a hat if we saw something that was considering offers shortly. When we were visiting houses, he always had a perfect balance of mentioning the pros and cons of a given house while not pushing one way to the other. He was extremely responsive and helped walk us through the closing process. Once we moved in, he provided us with a list of contacts to help us get the house fixed up. Sal is easy going and great to work with. I would recommend him to everyone!

Bought a home in 2012.
My husband and I worked with Sal to purchase a short sale home in the Lake Forest neighborhood. To say it was a difficult seller and sales process would be an understatement and we had heard there had been multiple offers while the house was on the market and all had eventually walked away. It was very clear there was a chance we would not get the house. I think a big part of the reason we did was because of Sal. His expertise and negotiation skills were critical as was his hard work and responsiveness... he was so on the ball. One example of this was a later evening when we were signing documents that needed to arrive the following morning by 10am at the seller's real estate's office. Instead of bringing them with him to the office the following morning, he drove them to his office that night so they would arrive first thing in the morning and be the first thing the other agent saw. It was the small details that really added up and I feel made the difference between us getting and not getting the house we wanted.

Sal was a great asset to have as we went through our home buying experience. He was patient and knowledgeable as he walked us through all the steps we needed to take. We started by giving him a few specifics and he gave us an internet portal with hundreds of homes to consider that fit our specifications. We then could narrow them down and look at them at our own convenience, and go see only the ones we liked best. He was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, and never hesitated to take us to a property we liked. When it came time to put in an offer, he was great to have on our side as he knew so much about the surrounding neighborhood and comparable houses. If you're buying a home in Ladera Ranch, you should have Sal as your realtor

I purchased my home with Sal's guidance last year, and since this time, we have kept in regular contact. Sal is a wonderful real estate agent, to whom I have referred several other prospective home buyers, who have in turn had success with Sal. He's a consummate professional, and someone in whom I have the deepest trust and a wonderful friendship, even 4 years after having met him. Throughout the whole purchasing process, Sal was a wonderful guiding hand. He was reachable at nearly all times (including during off hours) . He answered nearly any question I posed, and if he didn’t know the answer, he was quick to find it by consulting with the appropriate source. He was present during the initial home inspection as well as for the escrow signing and builder walkthrough. He facilitated a favorable price on the home over the course of a week of negotiation. He was pleasant, patient, and attentive during the entire process. I could not have asked for more. Following the completion of purchase, Sal continued to be a huge help. He was able to help me with a few early purchase/home owner issues when the builder was not available. He collected all of the documents together in a wonderful binder containing all important sale, escrow, and lean documents. He even brought his camera along the way and documented important events in the sale (signing, receipt of keys), so that I could have these special moments on film! I give Sal Mariscal my strongest recommendation. If you are considering buying a home and want the best realtor for the job, Sal is your man! I couldn’t have imagined a smoother home purchase, and it was largely in part thanks to Sal.

We really appreciated the way Sal Mariscal handled our email correspondences and straight up recommendations concerning areas that would be of best interest to our style of living in the south Orange County area. Since we are stationed in Germany, Sal set up all possible Condominiums within our budget on line for our review making it easier for us to schedule showings when we arrived in Orange County. When ever we had a question or concern, he responded quickly providing accurate information that was very useful in us making our purchase. When we arrived he took the time to make sure to show us all Condos that were available and went beyond researching data concerning each unit. I strongly recommend him to handle any Real Estate transactions since he can be trusted to go beyond an provide exceptional "Can Do” service.

We could not recommend Sal more highly. Sal expertly guided us throughout the entire home-buying process. As first-time buyers, this was particularly helpful for us. During our initial consultation with him, we were extremely impressed with how well prepared he was. (He provides an excellent packet of information with easy-to-read and understandable charts and pieces of information.) Sal is very well organized and kept in terrific communication with us throughout the process. We always felt he had our best interest at heart. On top of all that, he has a fantastic personality. He's laid back and easy to work with yet he's willing to be aggressive and advocate for you if/when needed. We would absolutely use his services again in the future.
