Nestegg Real Estate and Mortgage Testimonials


!! Samantha was professional, efficient and simply amazing. She knew everything about the homes around Orange County. She actively looked for my first dream home and found it in less than 2 months, closed escrow in 22 days. Eman was so helpful, he knew more of the construction of the homes. He would spot any potential problem in the structure and taught me what to look out for. I would definitely work with both of them again and HIGHLY recommend them.

Nestegg has been our trusted real estate and mortgage broker for over a decade, from helping us buy our first home 12 years ago, to helping us refinance through the years, to providing help in renting out a property.

Samantha is extremely knowledgeable, professional, very thorough and efficient. She really took care of us and kept our best interests at heart. Samantha has a knack for breaking down complicated, stressful processes into simple, straightforward terms backed with clear and patient explanation. Emmanuel has also helped us on multiple occasions through the years and every time we valued his constant professionalism, responsiveness and level-headed advice through each and every step. Samantha and Emmanuel are very quick in responding to questions on texts and emails and they provide excellent communication throughout each process. Every one of my experiences with Nestegg has been excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Sam has been my Real Estate and Mortgage Broker for the past 10 years.

She is very honest and straightforward. She does not give false information or illusions about home values or interest rates. Even after 10 years of doing business with Sam, she responds quickly to emails and text messages whenever I needed her help. In 2010, I thought about a short sale for my house and Sam advised me to hold onto it and rent out my spare room until the market rebounded. I took her advice and was able to refinance within 2 years and saved $200 on my mortgage under the Home Affordable Refinance Program. This year, Sam helped me refinance and cash out to pay off all of my debts and reduced my loan term to 20 years without increasing my payment. She has never pushed me towards a quick short term solution and instead stuck by me over the years until it was the best time to make a move. I've recommend Sam to about 5-6 of my friends and co-workers and they've all been very happy with her service.

We were shopping for a home off and on for over a year and finally found our dream house.

The house was an expensive purchase for us but my husband and I fell in love with it right away. We were afraid that we would have to compete with other Buyers to purchase the home but Sam was constantly in touch with the Listing Agent and she negotiated an awesome deal for us. We were able to purchase the house well below asking price and closed in 30 days. Sam was able to represent us on the sale and loan which facilitated the process a great deal. She helped us get the best rates and we did not have to stress out about anything. Thanks to Sam and her team, we are still living in this home and our kids are happily integrated into the best public schools. I have recommended my friends to call Sam for any real estate or mortgage needs and they have thanked me over and over again for the referral.


After several years of saving some cash here and there, my wife and I were ready to buy our first home.

A bit uncomfortable after hearing horror stories from friends and family about the "hunting and escrow" experience, we started to do some online research. It indeed seemed like a painful process to go through, until we were referred to Nestegg by one of my wife's friends. Sam and Emmanuel made this whole process very enjoyable and easy. They would always find time to visit properties with us at the craziest dates and times, guided us through every single step of the way and also handled everything from negotiation to inspections. However, the most important thing for us was their professionalism and integrity. They did not want to just sell us a home and move on. They actually took the time to understand what we were looking for and find the home we wanted. Even after the home purchase they always take the time to answer any questions I may have. I don't need to think twice to recommend Nestegg to anyone who is looking for a good experience buying a home.

Awesome! Awesome! My Wife and I were referred to Sam and were completely stoked by her professionalism. As a current business owner myself, it was a breath of fresh air to be working with someone who knows how important communication is and just flat out knows how to get work done ASAP. Sam made the process of our re-finance a breeze and always educated us on the best available options and rates there were. Somewhere in the future when we look to purchase another home or decide to re-finance again, we will most definitely be going back to her. If you're reading this you must be doing your research on finding a company to handle your needs, stop right here! Sam is someone we 100% would recommend to all our family and friends. We trust that she would give the same professional service we enjoyed to everyone.
