We were very pleased with our 1st class experience with Jen Caskey and the staff. When Jen took over selling our home, we knew very quickly she was the right choice. Her years of market experience and relationships in Manhattan Beach made us comfortable and confident our home would be well-positioned in the market. She helped us in quickly locating and executing staging of our 5,000 sq ft home during a time of high demand for high-end furnishings. Our home was ultimately sold to the right buyer and we moved through the escrow period quickly and smoothly. We were very happy with our experience with Caskey & Caskey and would recommend them to any homeowners looking for a highly professional, e...

I sold my home at the height of the pandemic with Caskey and Caskey. Not only did I get above the asking price for my home, they found me the absolute home of my dreams!! I have been in my new home pinching myself ever since. They truly are the best in the business when it comes to knowledge and I definitely had an edge against other home buyers we were up against. I always felt like they had my best interest at heart and was never pushed or rushed into anything. They were extremely careful bringing people through my home and I felt protected and safe given the current times we are in. Every single person in the office was knowledgeable and helpful. I will never go anywhere else again for ho...

Our young family had always dreamed of moving from West LA to the South Bay and it never would have been possible without the help of the Caskey's! We toured home after home that wasn't right until Jen found us a house off-market that hit everything we were looking for. If it wasn't for the Caskey's we wouldn't be in our new home in this amazing community and we couldn't be more appreciative! They both are familiar with every home on the market and were able to provide guidance and advice that went above and beyond our expectations. It's great to be working with the best in the area and the Caskey's absolutely take the crown!”

Dave has helped us sell a house in a down-market and buy a house in an up-market. And in between, he has notified us of many houses which he thought might be of interest to us. He has been with us when deals fell through and we have learned to listen carefully to his expert advice. So we have a lot of experience with Dave. He is the best – knowledgeable, patient, and pleasant through what can sometimes be an aggravating process. He is obviously well respected by his fellow brokers, and for good reason. Always in the know, Team Caskey is highly recommended.

Dave and Jen are the best realtors in the South Bay, hands down. The buying and selling process with the firm is incredibly easy and the communication is great.

Caskey & Caskey and Associates are always very helpful and knowledgeable. I also appreciate everything they do for the Manhattan Beach community. I recommend them all the time!!

I could not be happier with Caskey and Caskey as my realtors representing me as a buyer and seller in multiple transactions over the past decade. They are experienced, and incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market and the South Bay. Their marketing and negotiating skills are top-notch. I highly recommend Caskey and Caskey to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Jen, Thank you for finding us our beautiful home. There aren't enough words to fully express how much we appreciate what you did for us. You went above and beyond to get this house. Every step of the way you helped educate us on the process of buying a home and made it a great learning experience. We are so excited to start our journey as homeowners and can not thank you enough for your expertise and efficiency in getting everything done.

Dear Jen and Dave, Chris and I wanted to thank you (and your team) for the truly exceptional client service you provided to us during the sale of our house from start to finish. In particular, we were really impressed with the speed at which you were able to get the house ready and listed (repairs, staging, etc...), the marketing efforts, and how simple you made it especially with us being out of the country this past year. It was a tough and unique year but you made it work. We will highly recommend you to our friends who are ever in the market in MB. We wish you and your family all the best. Take care.

Jen and Dave, Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home. We are already settling in and enjoying it as a family. Casper can't get enough of the backyard and Myles is about to start crawling in his new room. We know we'll create countless memories here for years to come. Thank you for your kindness and guidance throughout the entire process and even after the close with all the repairs. We are truly lucky to have worked with you both and appreciate all you've done for us.

Loved working with Jen and Dave. During a super interesting time in the market, they were on top of everything and nimble.

“We chose Patrice to help us sell our house and before we were able to get it on the market, the pandemic hit. During the early days of the pandemic conditions were changing weekly and she kept on top of things without missing a beat, adjusting to each situation with new ideas and a positive attitude. She is highly organized, has a great work ethic and utilized the full scope of the Caskey & Caskey resources, which are extensive, to help make the sale of our house as smooth as possible. She has a marketing background and used that expertise to our advantage in the way she positioned our house in the media and on social media throughout the process. On top of all that, she is a delightf...


Mo was given a very difficult listing. The selling partners were hardly speaking. The tenant was uncooperative and the lease was poorly written. There was also a cloud on the title to address. Mo rose to the challenge. He found a new tenant and negotiated to assign the lease. The new tenant also wanted to purchase the building as well. The final problem was to resolve the cloud on the title. Mo helped us find a good attorney. All of these things took over two years to complete. Mo stayed positive and helpful through the entire transaction. Mo was upbeat and professional from start to finish. I am a retired real estate broker and find Mo to be a cut above and I would recommend Mo to any o...

Neil Hennington

I was planning a move to Los Angeles from CT where I had been living and working for 40 years. Mo was extremely helpful in guiding me to a variety of options for buying. Mo was quick to understand what I was looking for and made himself consistently available to deal with questions and negotiations. I found him to be very knowledgeable about the market, skilled in negotiating, and very comfortable to work with. I'm very pleased.

Dr. Thomas B., Hawthorne

When we purchased a new home, once again they stepped up to ensure that we were covered in every way. Our home purchase was a difficult one for various reasons, but they handled every situation like the professionals they are. In the end, we got everything we need to happen done. We would highly recommend the team of Mo and Nahal Sharifi if you're looking to have a positive experience either selling your home or buying your home (or both).

Ron and Susie C., Redondo Beach

We used the Mo and Nahal Sharifi of the Caskey & Caskey team to buy and sell our home in Redondo Beach. From selling our home to buying our home, we always felt they were looking out for our best interest. Our home sold faster than I expected, which may have been helped with some staging and major promotions on their end. They are excellent at communicating. They stayed in contact with us while we were oversees, even keeping track of time differences to ensure everything continued to go smoothly. One of them is always available to respond to your random texts on the weekends, no matter how small the question.


Recently, Mo Sharifi successfully handled the purchase of a Redondo Beach commercial office building for our business. Although he was with the listing agent's office, he performed very well in our best interest. As there were a lot of moving parts to close this purchase, he paid close attention to every issue and always responded quickly to keep the process moving along to a smooth, on-time closing. We have since engaged Mo to handle the leasing of our former location in Redondo Beach. We feel secure that with his expert knowledge of the South Bay commercial market, he will find an ideal tenant for our former property.

Mark S. and Denise B., Redondo Beach

Caskey and Caskey Commercial did a wonderful job selling our building. From marketing, communication, and getting our price, they far exceeded our expectations. Great company!

Pat P., Manhattan Beach

I recently sold my house in Torrance, CA. Nahal had done a great job of advertising, having discussions with agents, making the house look nice looking, dealing with the buyer's agent, helping out with escrow, and so many other things that is part of selling a home that I wasn’t aware of. With Nahal’s help I was able to sell my house very, very quickly at a great price. I am very satisfied with her work, so I highly recommend her!

Yasufumi M., Torrance

We put our house on the market, and it sold super quickly with multiple offers at our asking price. I liked how aggressive Nahal was in getting people to see our place, and the fact that we had multiple offers made us very happy. She was great and we would definitely use her again if we were to sell again. Nahal and her husband Mo are very sociable people and have a lot of connections which is great! Nahal arranged our home to look presentable to others, and was also super helpful with the contractors and all the inspections that were needed. She was always present whenever there was an inspection or whenever we requested her to be there. Highly recommended.

Alex and Peter P., Redondo Beach

After living in Palos Verdes for 30+ years, due to life changing events in my life, including my boys heading to college I decided to move to Torrance. I’ve known Nahal for quite some time, and I’m familiar with her great personality: it was a no brainer to choose her as my agent. Nahal made the buying process so smooth and pleasant for us. She referred me to an excellent lender. She accommodated all the showings to my schedule. She was very patient with me, guided me with my options, negotiated for me and explained everything thoroughly. She went above and beyond for us. I couldn’t be happier with my new home in Torrance and being so close to my work after 30 years of commuting. I’m...

Working with Ali to buy our home was a great experience. She has an exceptional understanding of the South Bay real estate market which allowed her to provide invaluable insights, guidance and counsel. Moreover, she knows the in's and out's of real estate and was able to steer us through every part of the process with calm authority. I recommend Ali to all of my friends and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Don and Liz F., Manhattan Beach

If you’re in the market to buy (or sell) a house, you’ll want Ali Snider. She’s not only very knowledgeable with the markets in and around town, but she also will ”keep it real“ for you. Knowing your family and what’s best for you is Ali’s strong suit. She’ll have your back.

Gordon and Haruko F., Manhattan Beach

Allison Snider made our move as seamless as possible. Being from the UK there were parts to buying a house that were new to us. Allison explained everything clearly, was patient & made it a pleasurable experience. We would highly recommend Allison to anyone buying or selling a house.

Jo and Collin W.

“Bryn and the team at Caskey and Caskey have and continue to simply take care of my family and help us to live out our dreams. They have sold and purchased for us with reasonable expectations that were only blown away by amazing results. Everything is taken care of, as we are guided hand in hand and step by step with personalized and customized treatment that completely fits not only our family, but the growing and revolving needs of our family living out dreams and thinking big together. Professional, efficient and hands on with care and bottom line results, means exciting and rewarding results for an overall experience second to none. Thank you, Bryn and the whole Caskey and Caskey team!...

Chris and Joan J., Redondo Beach

“We can't say enough about all the attention, care and hand-holding that Bryn Britton gave us in helping to sell our home of almost 34 years, guiding us in finding our new home and then synchronizing the sale and the purchase for a seamless move. Quick to learn what we were looking for in our new home and always available and patient for all our questions and concerns. And about eight months prior to all this Bryn got us thru the stress of having to sell our sister's condo to transition to a senior facility. We needed and got a quick, smooth sale and were pleased with the sales price."

Elaine M., Redondo Beach, Brentwood, San Pedro

“As I first time buyer, I had a lot to learn about the home buying process. Bryn and the team at Caskey & Caskey could not have made it easier for me. Not only were they patient working with a rookie, but they were on top of their game from start to finish and made me feel confident about the choices I was making. Bryn was always available around my busy work schedule and resolved any concerns that came along the way. Working with her has been such a pleasure and I am so thrilled to start this new chapter in my life. Thank you for everything!"

Ryan N., Hawthorne

“Bryn Britton makes house shopping a fun and engaging experience. She's with you every step of the way...even after you make your purchase to help you get the right people to complete any work you may need done in your new house. She was amazing, comforting and educational as we went through the buying process and helped us find the PERFECT house for our family. Plus, she's now a lifelong friend."

Rossi M., Redondo Beach

“Buying our first home was no small undertaking, and working with Bryn Britton from the start was the best decision we made. Bryn is extremely knowledgeable about all the neighborhoods we were interested in, and she helped educate us on all the ins and outs and nuances of purchasing a home. She was always available to talk with us, answer questions, visit homes, and make us laugh when things felt overwhelming! Her positive outlook, patience, and vast knowledge of the housing market here helped us keep our focus and find the home of our dreams. We are incredibly happy to have worked with Bryn, and we are incredibly happy in our new home!"

Billy and Kate L., Redondo Beach

Bryn Britton at Caskey and Caskey helped us find our dream home! She was patient, responsive and such a pleasure to work with. Her expertise guided us through this process. For such an important milestone In our lives we could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. We are so grateful and couldn’t recommend them more!“

Aimee K., Manhattan Beach

“Thinking of Judy as a Realtor would be like calling the Sistine Chapel just another church. Judy serves her clients in so many ways, whether you are buying, selling, building, exploring, or just want to discuss the current market. Judy listens and truly understands her client's specific needs, hopes, concerns and even quirks. We have been fortunate to have Judy assist our family in buying and selling our first home to buying and building our current M.B. home. She as provided us with amazing advice every step of the way. Judy truly embodies the real estate advisor role.She exhibits patience when her clients but is a relentless advocate to get a deal done when her clients are ready. Judy ...

The Childress Family, Manhattan Beach

'“Judy has been our go-to real estate broker for fifteen years. We have worked with her to buy multiple homes. In each case she has presented us with properties before they were on the market. This is an amazing accomplishment in the hyper-competitive South Bay market! She works around-the-clock on behalf of her clients. Her deep market knowledge has allowed us to make confident decisions which have made for stress free purchase processes. We appreciate her diligence and determination on our behalf and highly recommend her to family, friends and business associates."

S. Moore, Manhattan Beach

“We have been lucky enough to work with Judy as a seller and a a buyer. In total she has worked with us on three transactions. She has gone above and beyond each and every time. Judy Has a deep understanding of the local area and is meticulous in her preparation. I have never questioned that Judy always has my family at the top of her priority list. Her relationships with other realtors, vendors and craftsmen is always a huge asset. Not only did she sell us our current home but she introduced us to our builder that did our remodel. I can without hesitation refer Judy D'Angelo as a true professional and an expert at her craft."

The Loves Family, Manhattan Beach

“We are glad our daughter referred us to Judy. She said that Judy getting them their Manhattan Beach Tree Section home was nothing short of a miracle. Our daughter, son-in-law and our three grandchildren continue to enjoy their home to this day. Our Buyer/Broker relationship with Judy has been a real pleasure. She actually makes buying real estate stress free and fun! She is the consummate professional. She listens, she absorbs and she acts! No pressure ... just good sound advice. If it were not for her tremendous market knowledge, her negotiating skills, and her dogged determination we would not be the proud owners today of two Hermosa Beach Sand Section properties ... and looking forward...

G. Woodson, Hermosa Beach

“Thank you does not seem enough to cover all Judy has done for me and my family over the past 10+ years. She has been my guide and confidant while representing me in the purchase and sale of four South Bay homes in Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo Beaches. I have relied on Judy's knowledge and trusted her advice and counsel. In doing so I have always been delighted with the results. It was so nice to see Judy at my recent wedding. Looking out at my guests I realized that she has helped so many of our friends buy and sell their homes too .... even two of my Bridesmaids! Judy D' Angelo is a referral that I am proud to give out. All of her clients including me are lucky to have her: 'In Judy We...

Alesia Braithwaite, Redondo Beach

“Thanks to Judy D' Angelo for helping us out yet again last month. She is always there for us even though she sold us this home almost 21 years ago. I remember when we moved into our home. It was a real find matching our "wish list" perfectly. Judy provided us with the house plans and a list of the responsible contractors. However, last month we needed service on our fire sprinkler system and the original company was no longer available. Judy provided us with a referral to Fire Safe systems for the repair. They were great as are all of her referrals. We vacationed with friends recently in Lake Tahoe. We compared notes. Judy also helped them through four transactions! We have them beat with...

John and Michelle, Manhattan Beach

I have known Judy D'Angelo for some 25+ years both professionally and socially. Not only is she a good person, friend, and of great character ... she is a crack professional real estate broker. She enjoys an excellent and well deserved reputation among her clients and peers. I felt at ease and confident that she would take care of any problems that might arise and that she would keep my best interest in the forefront of any dealings. In such a competitive arena all agents should strive to be like Judy."

Beth G., Valmonte (Palos Verdes)

His experience ensured the success of the marketing phase and sale process. Kurt coached us to see the amazing potential in our new house that we didn’t initially see. His initiative to proceed with extra inspections during escrow allowed us to request and receive a significant reduction to the purchase price. Most importantly Kurt is caring and personable...and our children love him! We highly recommend him and the whole team."

He always has his client's best interest at heart and has many years of Real Estates experience. He is also a long time South Bay resident and really understands the market. Kurt had our home in escrow within 2 days of listing it on the MLS at our asking price! Escrow went very smoothly. If something needed to be repaired Kurt was able to recommend people to do the repairs at reasonable prices. He was very hands on and made sure that everything got done on time. Kurt is very personable and really works to develop a relationship with his clients. It's not just another busin...

Amy M. Palos Verdes Estates

“Working with Kurt Allen and his team was an incredible experience from start to finish. I have never known a more hardworking broker in my life. The house was sold as part of an estate, so there were additional challenges to the sale. Kurt handled every challenge with total professionalism and kept the family updated all along with way! I have shared our experiences with Kurt and his team with friends and family and people are seriously in shock when they hear all of the "extra mile" responsibilities Kurt took on to assure the sale of our family home went seamlessly. I will never be able to thank him enough!"

Kathy B. Rolling Hills

“Kurt sold our family home of 15 years, located in Palos Verdes Estates and worked with us to purchase our new home in Rolling Hills Estates. Due to Kurt’s accurate pricing recommendation, our home sold immediately and with 3 offers. All offers were over list so that was extremely welcome news. Kurt also held open houses to help advertise and showcase our home. Kurt was also instrumental in helping us assess what we needed to do to our home before we listed it to make it more desirable to buyers. All transactions went smoothly and that made the whole process very easy to manage. Kurt was very knowledgeable about activity in our area as well as many others. We would wholeheartedly recomme...

Kurt has a great personality and gives you the straight scoop on any property you investigate. He has been involved in the Manhattan Beach real estate market all his life, as he grew up here. He can sell Manhattan Beach qualities better than anybody in town. So if you are a seller, he is your guy. Kurt keeps up with the market trends on financing and construction costs.

Kurt’s integrity, tenacity, understanding of the marketplace, as well as his genuine care for his clients’ best interest are second to none.

His knowledge, guidance, responsiveness and personality are unmatched in this market and we have no hesitation recommending him to our friends."

Karlton and Kelly B., Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach

I worked with Chris to sell my house in Torrance after meeting with a different realty company. Talk about night and day. Chris and his team descended upon my house within 1 day of our meeting. They took notes, looked closely at every detail in my home and let me know exactly what the process was and what it would take to sell my home for the price point I demanded. It really was amazing. Yes, people say a house in LA can sell itself in this market but what they don't tell you is that you may be leaving a lot of money on the table. With Caskey&Caskey I got offers above asking before the open house! I rarely write reviews about anything other than food but man, these people are fantastic at w...

Tani C., Torrance

I want to take this opportunity to recommend Chris Schmidt and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their house. I have just had the opportunity to work with Chris on both sides of a transaction, first selling my house and during that time, finding our new home. I literally was floored by the professionalism that one person can bring to the table and the savvy tactics that he knows representing the different sides. We found Chris extremely knowledgeable of the local market, not only helping with the best comparisons of the recent sales but also able to point out the values of our house in its location on the street! When we started with Chris, we asked about the general marketing of the...

Asya S., Manhattan Beach

Chris Schmidt is calm, easy-going, attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, committed, trustworthy, resourceful, diligent and NOT PUSHY. He respects clients' boundaries and limits and is hyper aware and respectful of individual comfort zones. That said, when it comes to business, he examines all the angles to every deal, is creative and hard working and will stop at nothing to help you realize all your real estate ambitions. And, if you're like me and appreciate consummate professionals who are talented but also punctual, articulate, polite, well groomed and genuinely KIND, then Chris will appeal to you even more. Because of Chris, my house sold less than a week later at full asking price wi...

Audrey F., Redondo Beach

Between my ex husband and I, thanks to Chris, we have bought 3 homes, sold 1, and and have gotten 3 awesome renters for the duplex. We couldn't be happier! Chris is absolutely the guy that you want to have representing your home buying dreams and budget. He takes the time to find out what you like walking around the homes with you. He knows about the neighborhoods in regards to safety and appreciating value. He has a good understanding of construction of homes- pointing out things like the roof, termites, piping, and other things that a buyer needs to be aware of to avoid costly repairs after purchase. He is the one you want to have interacting with the other professionals of the buying proc...

Josie Schatz, Redondo Beach

Chris could not have been more helpful and patient in our home buying experience. He gave great advice and and had sound strategies. Several years later when we elected to sell our house, we contacted him and we were able to experience his genius once again. Responding immediately, they had 4 offers above our asking price in less than 4 days after listing. There is no one else I would consider representing us when contemplating real estate in the South Bay and beyond.

Tyler and Barb, S. Redondo Beach

Chris Schmidt is Great! We were new to the area when Chris found our new home-we had numerous problems with our loan broker, he found the person who made our loan happen. He provided us with all the tradesmen to renovate, all very good people. After the sale, he is so service oriented for every thing someone new to the area would need. When we decided to go for a bigger house, we of course called him. After, the sale, which he made happen with great advice to make the deal work against competing bids-he helped me find great qualified renters for my front unit. You get wise guidance about what to buy or how to sell, how to make the deal, and who to use for moving, repairs and renovations. I c...

Chris is more than just a realtor...he is also a friend! He really helped me out when he sold my last house in North Redondo for $50k more than my optimal buyout price! I made over $142k on the deal, which with Chris's help I reinvested directly into a house in South Redondo Beach with an ocean view, which now worth $400k more than paid for it. Please do yourself a favor and trust Chris in helping you find a home in the South Bay!!!

Duncan Nisbet, Redondo Beach

Working with Chris Schmidt and his team was the smoothest Real Estate transaction I have ever been in. Having had a friend that previously worked with Chris, I took the opportunity to meet with him and discuss my needs. It became immediately clear that I would trust him to sell our house. We had a unique situation with our house and we felt our property had a special value based on the zoning and location of the house. Chris completely agreed with us and took the opportunity and ran with it. The marketing of the house spoke to it’s unique circumstances and the offers that came in on our house were countered with the developed explanation of the true value of the house. Although we received...

I own rental property and called upon Kurt for advice dealing with a long standing problem I was having. While I was not selling, he still got back to me right away and kept calling until we connected; even though it was raining and he was in the middle of a move himself! I benefited greatly from his advice and knowledge of the south bay real estate market. And will definitely recommend him to friends...that is how I knew to contact him in the first place--a neighbor in PVE gave me his number. Thanks Kurt--will definitely call you when ready to sell.


We found at Caskey and Caskey you get not just your agent, but a team of people who are smart, resourceful and very experienced. Every person we encountered seemed to bend over backwards to help us make a success of our home sale. We were treated like VIPs selling our tall and skinny in Redondo Beach even though they also represent multimillion dollar homes on The Strand as well. They were always supportive and patient with any concerns we had and were always so fast to respond. The team assessed our house made suggestions to improve it for sale to get the best possible price and designed a customized marketing plan. We followed their advice. Deanna Whipp the director of operations there, ...

Jennifer Worrell

Dave and Jen have helped us with the sale of two of our homes and we wouldn't use anyone else. They are timely, thoughtful, professional and always follow through. We most appreciated their discretion and knowledge in getting the sale completed. Thanks Caskeys!


Dave is a friend and neighbor of my brother, Steve. Service was excellent from beginning to end. Dave Caskey's team added at least $100,000 to our net proceeds from the sale of my Mother's home.


I worked with Chris to sell my house in Torrance after meeting with a different realty company. Talk about night and day. Chris and his team descended upon my house within 1 day of our meeting. They took notes, looked closely at every detail in my home and let me know exactly what the process was and what it would take to sell my home for the price point I demanded. It really was amazing. Yes, people say a house in LA can sell itself in this market but what they don't tell you is that you may be leaving a lot of money on the table. With Caskey&Caskey I got offers above asking before the open house! I rarely write reviews about anything other than food but man, these people are fantastic at w...

"Dave Caskey" is not just a one man "real estate agent." This is a bona fide business organization with knowledgeable operations people who support their clients throughout the sale/buying process. I would not have been able to achieve the results obtained without not only Dave's market knowledge but also the daily, hard working action of his operations folks. We would not be where we are now if not for this great team. Mike Leonard


I recently bought a home in Redondo Beach with Austin Houska as my Realtor. He went way above and beyond my expectations! He oversaw every detail of negotiations, contracts, and issues about the property - and, he did it all with lightening fast response times! He demonstrated great knowledge and professionalism on every topic including a wide array of subcontractors to fix/repair anything that I needed/wanted. Unfortunately, the other agent was one of those 1% Realtors and was completely useless. I'm so glad I had Austin protecting my interests! The whole team at Caskey & Caskey worked together to make my transaction seamless and requiring very little of my time. Could not be happier with ...

Stephanie Delano

Recently bought a house in So. Redondo using Austin Houska. He is an AMAZING Realtor! From researching the area to find the perfect home that met our every need, to overseeing every detail with precision and immediate response - including subcontracting services to add/repair anything we wanted or needed. Everyone at Caskey & Caskey worked together to make sure my transaction was seamless and required very little of my own time. I'm soooo glad I didn't use one of those 1% Agencies who does absolutely nothing to help the Customer - you definitely get what you pay for in realtors! Austin was highly knowledgeable and professional when I needed him to protect our interests and often demonstrated...

Stephanie D.

We would use Caskey and Caskey again - in a heartbeat. Very professional, and sold our house nearly immediately after listing. Specifically Colleen Hartley is best agent in America!


I loved working with the Caskey's!! They are extremely professional and REALLY know their field! Our home sold in record time with multiple offers. THANK YOU to the Caskey's and their team!! Special thank you to Jennifer for all your support through this process. Caskey & Caskey is simply the best!!


I want to thank Dave and his team, especially Deanna Whipp for the effort they put in finding me my home. After a long battle with a first transaction went sideways due to the sellers not disclosing some major information Dave and Deanna quickly had the escrow canceled and my deposit fully returned. Within a few days we were back on with a new house two streets over in the neighborhood I was adamant about living in. This time everything went smooth and we closed escrow early. Thank you again Caskey team!


We worked with Christian and Caskey and Caskey when we rented a home and they represented the owner. Christian and his team went above and beyond to make sure our move in was seamless. They were friendly, professional, organized and everything you would ask for in a real estate agent (and they represented the other side). They worked well with my agent and have an outstanding reputation in the community. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agent in the area.

Dave and his team are amazing. We have been looking for a home for 6 months. One weekend we found what I hoped was our forever home, but we had to sell our current home first. I contacted Dave and he swooped in. Within 2 weeks we had our house on the market and in two days we has multiple offers over asking. A few days later we were in escrow. Between him and his team we got the house prepped and sold that quickly. They have incredible resources and are ready to help at any time. I feel very lucky to have them help us sell our house!

When my husband and I began looking at homes in the Southbay area, we were referred to Dave Caskey. He and his team certainly live up to their reputation. Dave was so responsive and professional from the beginning. He was able to show us houses we had seen online as well as a couple of homes that would be out on the market soon. We were delighted to find a beautiful home, in a fantastic school district. Dave and his team were a pleasure to work with and educated us throughout the process as we were first time home buyers. We felt confident in the advice provided to us and were happy to work with such a strong network in the area. We are still reaping the benefits of contractor recommendation...

Laura M.

I sold and bought a house in the South Bay in December 2015 with Caskey and Caskey. What a fantastic agency ! Great agents and teamwork- their expertise as one of the top agencies clearly shows- I got my home sold within one week on the market and it allowed me to purchase my dream house. The whole Caskey team was always accessible and responsive to me at any time . I highly recommend Caskey and Caskey and my amazing agent Colleen Hartley. I will absolutely use them again !

Erin S.

We used Caskey and Caskey to sell and buy a home in South Bay this year and could not have been happier with the service and relationship. We met with several realtors prior to listing our home with Dave and it takes about 5 minutes talking with him to know he is a consummate professional and a top realtor in the area. He tirelessly worked to maximize both sides of the deal for us and provided candid and trusted advice about obviously financially significant decisions that we were making for our family. What we underestimated going into the process with Caskey and Caskey was the incredible "team" we would be working with who were available literally around the clock to make our lives ea...

Lori N.

I have bought and sold several homes through Dave Caskey and he is simply as good as it gets. Dave has the experience that can only come from continuously being one of the top Realtors in the South Bay. Dave's selling and buying strategies have had major financial impacts in our transactions, I feel fortunate to partner with him and his entire team of professions (photo & video/ writers/ handymen/painters, etc.) Whether you choose Caskey or not - at a minimum consult with Dave, financially speaking it could be one of the most important one hour meetings you ever have.

Jerry S.

we bought our first home in redondo beach using caskey and caskey real estate. bryn britton was our agency and she is fabulous! so easy to relate to and walked us through everything as first time home buyers. dave had to step in once when she was out of town and was fantastic as well. all around a great and reputably company to work with!!

Robyn L.

Dave has represented me on several properties since 2002, including investment properties and the purchase and sale of our primary residences. He is always well connected and in tune with what is happening in south bay real estate. He provides a great perspective on the nuances from house to house and neighborhood to neighborhood. He also has been very helpful with all of the major and minor items that might come up when closing, whether it is move related or home maintenance. I highly recommend the Caskey & Caskey team if you are buying in the Beach cities.

David M.

After consulting several friends and interviewing many agents, we were thrilled with our choice of Dave Caskey to handle the sale of our beloved Manhattan Beach home. Dave, along with his assistant Deanna, made the process easier than I imagined. He made excellent contractor recommendations for work we wanted to have completed, was available and extremely patient for the many questions we had and was a true professional. Additionally, he made sure potential buyers knew exactly what we loved about our house and made it shine. Finally, we were extremely pleased that he was able to get a good offer in the amount that we were hoping to receive, despite what other agents had predicted our sale pr...

Kimberly N.

We just purchased our first home and I have to say, working with Bryn Britton at Caskey and Caskey was fantastic. I greatly looked forward to our weekly Thursday open house dates. They were always helpful, patient, and genuinely committed to finding us our perfect home. They also have such good relationships with all the realtors in the South Bay that we always heard about properties before they even went on the market. I would use them again in a heartbeat!

Kate L.

Over the last 10 years, our family has used Caskey and Caskey to buy and sell 4 homes in the South Bay. They provide great customer service, are excellent negotiators, and have extensive market knowledge. Most importantly, I feel like the Caskey team has our best interest in mind. I highly recommend Caskey and Caskey.

C L.

I had the opportunity to work with Dave Caskey in a recent home purchase and it was wonderful. Dave was very responsive, made sure someone was in touch with me when he was out of town and when we found the house, he made sure we got it. Dave either arranged or put me in touch with home inspection, termite, designers, contractors and more. He was willing to answer my questions about things not really relevant to the sale and responded promptly when doing so. Great experience all around and would use him again.

Mary Wilson

Dave has helped us sell a house in a down-market and buy a house in an up-market. And in between, he has notified us of many houses which he thought might be of interest to us. He has been with us when deals fell through and we have learned to listen carefully to his excellent advice. So we have a lot of experience with Dave. He is the best - knowledgeable, patient and pleasant through what can sometimes be an aggravating process. He is obviously well respected by his fellow brokers, and for good reason. Always in the know. Team Caskey is highly recommended.

Jim and Cathy Hunt

Dare true professionals! They represented us selling 2 homes with results over our expectations, also helped us purchase a wonderful home. It has been a great experience and we look forward to additional transactions in the future.

Michael Bonnie

Dave has helped me on a couple occassions for buying, selling, and renting places in the Southbay and I can confidently say that he is the best. Dave is professional, knowledgable, connected, focused, and above all, a great guy.

Vanessa Desrochers

Dave Caskey and team were great to work with and made the selling side easy. This is unusual since it is much simpler to buy property than it is to sell property. We went from MLS listing to closing escrow in under 60 days -- speaks volumes! Price we settled on was higher than asking price.


The best real estate team I have ever encountered. Dave is great and Deanna is an amazing worker...she can do ANYTHING! Great communication, great salesmanship, great attention to detail, great everything. I can't say enough about the outstanding service of the entire team!

Charles L.

I almost feel I am not doing my duty by writing a review and not covering anything negative...but, in all honesty, there is nothing negative to say here. Dave Caskey and his team (Deanna Whipp is a miracle worker) are professionals through and through. I had already moved away and they took care of EVERYTHING that needed doing so I rarely even had to take a trip down to the house. They made some upgrades that pleased both me and the buyers and I was able to get a great price for my condo thanks to this wonderful team! Five stars in every aspect!

Charles L

I met Dave years before I actually decided to list this property. He came out to help me determine a rental price per unit. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and very professional. Ten years later, when I decided to list the building, he was my only choice. In the intervening years, I had been approached by many, many realtors, but none were as professional and seemed to know the area as well as Dave and his team. Ultimately, the property went for 30.5% over asking with multiple bids. This was a unique, but high interest property. Dave got it to the handful of buyers that might be interested and generated multiple offers. Through the escrow process, he was diligent in following up and working w...


Last month I was fortunate enough to sell my sister's home to her close friend of many years. My sister has passed away in July and I was referred to Dave Caskey in Hermosa Beach who came to my sister's house to meet with me the day after she passed away. It was an emotional time and I found him to be very sensitive,and remarkably supportive, emphasizing his availability to help me any way that I needed from New England where I would be returning. He brought in his professional team the next day. They were just great, very organized, warm and friendly and informing me of just what I needed to do to prepare the house to sell. I committed to working with him right away owing to his responsiven...

Stephen N.

Dave has sold 2 homes for me and bought 2 homes for me in Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach. When selling our home he knew where to price it to maximize our profit and when buying our homes he worked closely with the other agents to make sure we were competitively priced to get the deal, but to not overpay. If you are serious about buying or selling a home in the southbay then you simply need to call Dave. He has a deep understanding of the market. He knows all the other agents in the market. He is a great negotiator. When you put all of this together he is able to put both buyers and sellers in the best possible position.


Dave and his team were absolutely fantastic to work with. The level of professionalism and attention to detail was superb. Our agent was in constant contact with us throughout the entire process. I could not have been more confident in their ability to handle our transaction, And they did so competently and with great tact.

Michelle S.

We selected Caskey & Caskey (Dave) after interviewing other brokers, but also based on the very strong recommendation of our next door neighbors, who had just had a fantastic experience listing their home with Dave. Our goal was to sell our home in Manhattan Village Estates as quickly as possible, and at a price that might set a high mark for the neighborhood. So we also selected Dave and his team based on market knowledge and marketing ability. What we didn't even appreciate at the time was the power of Dave's support team, including a fantastic home repair, spruce-up and staging team, great website and collateral materials, all of which really helped to maximize our home's best features ...

MB Bob

the best realtor my wife and I have ever used. We were selling our home, which we had built 25 years ago and raised our family in, and Dave made the entire process absolutely stress-free and painless, He and his staff are remarkable in their attention to the entire process. Use him if you can.

Tom and Linda Stevenson

The Caskey Team is the absolute BEST. Phenomenal communicators, negotiators and all around amazing Realtors!

Ellie T.

Dave was the best agent we have worked with. He made the experience so positive and took such great care of us. He really went beyond the call of duty. We would definitely use dave again and will recommend him to our friends and family. He and the service he gives is excellent.


Dave Caskey (C&C) has represented us multiple times when buying and selling real estate. Dave caught our attention when we found out he holds degrees in both Real Estate and Finance and is a top-producer (350+ agents) with the area's highest volume RE Company. The extensive marketing program C&C provides sellers was simply unmatched in our research with other area realtors. The C&C marketing team consists of professional stagers, web-designers, content writers, graphic artists, craftsmen and photographers/videographers to name a few. When purchasing a home Dave found us a property that was not yet listed on the MLS and negotiated favorable terms. Even a slight twist in the negotiation...

Jerrell Stark

Dave has the ability to come up w/ solutions when a listing isn't getting the necessary activity. He's willing to devote his resources when other agents weren't willing to promote exsposure for his listings. Because of this, he is able to move product in a timely fashion even when there are obstacles occur. I would not hesitate to recommend him especially in the high end market.


We selected Dave after interviewing several brokers. Our goal was to sell our home in the Redondo Beach neighborhood and move to nearby Manhattan Beach, so we required someone who had knowledge of both cities. We also selected Dave based on his marketing ability. At his expense, he brought in a fantastic home staging team to maximize our home's selling points. Our home was supported with a beautiful color 1/2 page ad in the Beach Reporter, a full address website with detailed, professional photos, and a staff team who took care of every detail. As a result, our home sold in less than 1 week, with multiple offers well above the asking price - far outpacing the neighborhood comps. We look f...
