We had been working with Mimi since 2019, before the pandemic. She is very knowledgeable and patient about house hunting. She gave us a lot of good advice from escrow to closing. Besides her expertise, she is also a very caring person, very easy to work with.
Five star rating, 10 star service! Mimi and her team were excellent, they made our home buying process so easy and smooth. Her team was in constant contact with us for all the details. They were able to calm our nerves and deliver us a perfect condo for our new family! I would 100% recommend Mimi and her team.
Mimi is unequivocally an excellent agent. Mimi engineered the impossible for us! We were first time home buyers in the middle of a pandemic and an unprecedented shortage of housing inventory. Despite this, Mimi was able to guide us into securing our dream home after a few short months of hunting. She was patient and flexible, attending all showings with us while working around our schedule. She could be reached day or night with questions—an extremely prompt communicator by any means (phone, text, email, smoke signals, etc.). She knows the home buying process inside and out, and was able to advise us on a slew of topics. Beyond raw knowledge, Mimi was a fierce strategist and negotiator. She was able to get us a large credit thanks to her negotiation skills. She was also able to move extremely quickly and efficiently throughout the Escrow process—we closed in 18 days (wow!!). She was a particular asset in coordinating all sorts of inspections and associated follow ups. Above all, Mimi executes her job while maintaining a friendly and positive demeanor (important throughout this potentially stressful process)! Bottom line, I would recommend Mimi to anyone who is looking to buy a home!
Mimi represented us as first time buyers in Los Angeles. Mimi is very knowledgeable and knows exactly what it takes to get you into escrow and close. We ran into a lot of issues with our lender along the way, and Mimi did everything she could to push the lender to move along and while keeping our minds as ease. If it wasn’t for Mimi, we wouldn’t have snagged our beautiful home in Rancho Palos Verdes for asking price!
I remember very vividly getting in touch with Mimi several years ago as I found her online. At that time she had stellar reviews and an already existing client base who raved about her services, communication, punctual follow up, and overall very professional approach to residential real estate. My budget was minimal at that time as my wife and I were recently married, so I put everything on hold after we made our initial contact with Mimi. Several years passed by and my wife and I decided to save up aggressively and pull the trigger. I didn’t hesitate to contact Mimi and almost instantly she had emailed me back to arrange a phone conversation to further discuss what my wife and I were looking for. Because we were first time home buyers my wife Jen and I had absolutely no idea what we were doing, we had tremendous amounts of questions (silly ones I’m sure), emailing and texting constantly on a daily basis about offers, competition with other home buyers, escrow and all that entails with inspections among other contingencies. And I can honestly say that without Mimi and her phenomenal performance, professionalism, knowledge and skill Jen and I would be in huge trouble. Mimi was nothing but a joy to work with. She handles things. Legitimately gets things done, it’s amazing. She is always available for texts, emails, phone calls. If you are debating between several agents, this isn’t a difficult choice Mimi performs and is family. I would work with Mimi again in a heartbeat, no question. Stalks to you and will treat you so great while at the same time being extremely professional with a vast amount of knowledge in her profession. I rarely write reviews for individuals. This one is different though, it is well deserved and I know she poured herself into this house. A note to Mimi, for all she’s done. Mimi, thank you so much for helping Jenny and I buy a house. This entire process was made easy by your efforts. I cannot thank you enough. Wishing you all the best with your lovely family and I wish you much success in your future endeavors! Looking forward to having you over for our house warming party!
Mimi is an awesome agent. My friend referred me to her and she kindly accepted the job. She helped my family find a property and went through the trouble of the entire purchase process. She was very patient and knowledgeable. I am sure if you are trying to sell your property, she would be of great help too!
Mimi came to the rescue when I was practically being traumatized by a very neglectful agent. She found me more properties to review immediately and days later we were looking at four in one day. Within less than two weeks I found a great house and the property manager even made a comment to me about how efficient she was in submitting my application. He was impressed enough to mention it and he implied it had something to do with me being chosen for a property that was in high demand. I can recommend Mimi to anyone searching for a house to rent or buy!
Mimi is great to work with and a true professional. My wife and I have worked with her for about a year and was along for the up-and-down rollercoaster ride that is LA real estate. We thought we hit the jackpot early when only a month into working with her, we opened escrow on a condo near Hancock Park but after hitting a few snags (it was our first escrow after all) we needed to back out of the deal. Undeterred, Mimi still encouraged us to scan the market and let her know of any properties that caught our eye to schedule walkthroughs for, or attend open houses. We must have attended somewhere close to 10 of these, and everytime, Mimi was always on time and ahead of schedule. For the instances where she had scheduling conflicts she was sure to follow up and get our thoughts on the property. This happened for the condo we eventually settled on in the Mid-Wilshire / Mid-City area of Los Angeles, where we initially attended an open house with just my wife and I, and after consulting with Mimi we put in an offer just above asking price which was then brought to a blind three-party counteroffer process. Mimi was insightful throughout the counteroffer process and we put together a number that my wife and I were comfortable with, that ended up being less than half a percent higher than the 2nd highest bid - we were in disbelief and elated. Thank you Mimi for your patience, professionalism, and pointers throughout the process!
Mimi was wonderful in helping take care of my transaction for a condo in Westwood. As a first time buyer, I was unsure about many of the processes but Mimi made it seemingly easy and let me know what to do and what to expect when.
Mimi was our agent for a dream house of ours. It turned out to be the dream house for 16 others! We went through 3 sets of counter offers. That was just the beginning. Once our offer was accepted, thanks to Mimi, we had to go through the escrow process. As first time home buyers, we didn't know much about the process and Mimi was there every step of the way. Mimi was very comfortable to talk to and she was good at communicating on our behalf with the sellers. Overall we had a very good experience and would recommend her to any potential home buyers. Thank you Mimi.

Mimi helped my wife and I get our first condo in Westwood. In fact, she helped beat out other offers and still got the property 35k under asking. Mimi has a sweet personality but beneath that is someone who will really fight to get the best deal. Her knowledge of the Westside also helped an inexperienced couple like us see multiple properties and weigh what was important and what was not - which is a big part of the process.
Mimi helped us buy a condo in January 2018. She helped us for months to find the perfect place for us and was even able to get it for under asking (which is almost impossible in the LA market)! This was our first time buying and we had no clue what we were doing but Mimi made sure to explain everything to us. She is very responsive to your texts/calls and always goes the extra mile. I definitely recommend Mimi to anyone searching for a new place in LA.
Mimi Sin helped us to buy a condo in Playa Del Rey in March 2017 in the mid 600 range. This was our first home purchase and she helped walked us through the whole process. We were able to find a home very quickly, even with the competitive market conditions. We ended up getting in a bidding war with another buyer for the offer, Mimi was is constant contact with us and helped us edge the other offer out. She then got us a good amount of money back with the results of the inspections, she is a great negotiator! Mimi also helped us sell our wonderful condo in PDR in May 2019 for 20k over asking! We had a bidding war over our place and were easily able to secure an offer and a backup offer right away after listing. We were moving across the country and she was there every step of the way in communicating with us and making sure we got all of the papers signed on time, even when we were in another state. And she recommended a great realtor for us as we look for our new home. Thank you Mimi!
Mimi was great helping me to find and acquire a townhouse in March, 2017. I hadn't purchased a home since 1999, and Mimi was able to make the process as painless as possible. Further, she was able to recommend great providers for inspections as well as renovation contractors. I would absolutely recommend Mimi to home buyers and sellers if asked.
My husband and I just moved to Venice Beach area for his job. We were looking for an apartment home to settle down. Mimi was extremely helpful in our home purchasing process. She was great in notifying us about apartments that fit our needs and was always very efficient in arranging visits for us. She is also a very experienced agent and helped us got great deals. During the escrow process, we had some issues with loan application. Mimi was very responsive to our questions and concerns and helped us through the stressful process.
Mimi Sin helped me find and purchase my first home back in September of 2006. I was a first time homebuyer and was very new to the whole process and nervous as well. Mimi took great care in educating me through every step, answering all my questions, and was very responsive to my needs. She’s an experienced realtor, very knowledgeable of the industry, and extremely helpful to her clients. She gave me good advice and I trusted her in all my transactions. We spent weeks looking at different condos and she took me to a great neighborhood that I didn’t even know existed. I'm extremely happy with my condo! I can’t be more grateful to Mimi and looking forward to buying my next house with her!
We first met Mimi at an open house that she was hosting and then she became our family's buying agent. She was extremely responsive and made the whole house buying experience very quick and straightforward. She laid out very clearly all the steps that needed to be taken to submit an offer and close escrow and we were able to successfully beat out four other bids on our new home.
Once my husband and I found out that we were having twins we had to look for a bigger place to live in rather short notice. Mimi helped us during this stressful time by sending us numerous listings, locating suitable places to view, taking us to open houses, and when we found our house, she aggressively negotiated our terms of agreement. Buying a house can be a stressful experience that would be compounded without the right real estate agent who acts in your best interest. We are fortunate to have had Mimi on our side who made the transaction go as smoothly as possible from start to finish. I highly recommend her.
Mimi made buying our first house possible. Helping us find a home was only the beginning of how she helped us. The listing agent and sellers were very difficult people, but she handled them very well and was great at making sure that we had the least amount of friction with them as possible. When we were having trouble with our lender she would contact people at the company and made sure everything got done. Sometimes this was very difficult, but she kept at it and was even able to reach people in the company who weren’t the original contacts to help to get things done. Without her we would not have completed all the tasks necessary on time. This included up to the end when we needed to push the lender hard to get the loan to fund us in a reasonable time. And when the loan funded a day late she negotiated with the sellers to give us one more day to close. I don’t think we would have been able to complete this processes without her help. She has always been there to quickly answer questions and address problems. She is not afraid to reach the people who she needs to so that you can get the house you want and make sure that you don’t miss a step in the complex process of buying a home. We really appreciate her work. She is an excellent agent!

Mimi is one of the most patient, honest and knowledgeable agents I have ever worked with. She is detail oriented, responsive, positive and very efficient. I could not have asked for a more qualified agent to help me find my next condo!
