    I couldn't ask for a better realtor by my side for my first purchase ever. Adam was there through everything. Any question I had, answered. Best of all, he knows the market and when there's a good deal. He ALWAYS looks at resell value and tries to paint a picture of the future when looking at any property. He is highly professional and experienced, and can negotiate with ease. 10/10 recommend
    Wendy gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    Adam was very cordial and helpful, especially considering that we were working long distance and had never met in person. He was responsive to my criteria for lodging and found a suitable place for me.
    Siddharth gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    Adam was well prepared since day 1, and his years of experience was evident in how he laid out a clear plan to get my house ready for sale, and provided guidance on listing price. He took care of all of the home improvements including paint, cleaning etc, since I had already moved out of town to Northern California. Adam is very reliable and communicated well with me and kept me updated on the progress. He helped me understand the sale process and answered all my questions, since I had plenty as a first time home seller. I would definitely recommend to have Adam help you sell or buy a house, and if the opportunity arises I will pick him again for myself. It was a pleasure working with you, Adam.

    Adam always responded quickly and looked out for our best interest as first time home buyers. He was patient with us as we often went back and forth on buying a home in the beginning. He was professional and offered good advice. We would recommend Adam to anyone, he is so easy to work with.
    James gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    Excellent agent. Adam had our home sold before it ever hit the MLS. He never cut us short, would always listen and responded to every question asked in a professional manner. I highly recommend Adam if you are selling your home.
    Annie gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    I could write a book about everything Adam Alcaraz did for us to sell our Laguna Niguel townhouse. After we decided to sell it, we literally did not even visit the property....he took care of EVERYTHING. He dealt with our (difficult) renters, he took care of repairs, he had new flooring put in, found and coordinate with painters, made sure plants were watered, set up all the inspections, and on and on--and he was pleasant and positive throughout the whole process. Before all this, I had NO idea that a real estate agent could take care of so many things. I don't know if it's common for an agent to do so much, but, as far as I'm concerned, Adam is a saint. I simply can't imagine having a more positive experience with a realtor. If I were grading him, he'd get an A with infinity pluses. Thank you, Adam!

    Adam helped us sell our Townhouse in Laguna Nigel. We got the price we wanted. Adam helped at every stage of the process: helping the current tenants to leave, taking care of spot contractors for updates/repairs/inspections, negotiating with the HOA to take care of some structural issues, and working with the buyer's agent. If you want a full-service, thourgh, professional agent, Adam is your man! -Peter D.

    I have signed, and am really happy that the buyers are so enthusiastic about the place. I can't tell you how grateful we are for ALL you have done. You have been fantastic, and have gone so far above and beyond what I would ever have expected from a realtor. From the bottom of my heart....THANK YOU!!! Peter D. & Anne M.

    Adam is the best agent we've ever worked with. He helped us sell our home quickly and was able to get it sold for 20k more than anyone else thought we could. He always has a positive attitude and a sunny outlook, but he's also realistic and down-to-earth. We still reach out to him from time to time to discuss the real estate market and he's always helpful and informative. Thank you Adam!

    Adam's short sale knowledge and expertise helped me and my family navigate some pretty difficult financial times. He always kept our best interest top of mind and helped us avoid foreclosure. When we are back in the market for a new home we will be using Adam to help us with the purchase.

    Nancy & Ron gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    We cannot give enough accolades to Adam Alcaraz. We had several unforeseen and very unusual circumstances to overcome in our real estate transaction. This young man was our constant guide '“ walking along side us and leading from a position of strength. His demeanor was always calm, quiet and positive. At times, we were even able to enjoy some 'inside' humor. We felt there wasn't anything he would give-in to that would not support us in every way. We encountered many different personalities in our time together and Adam was able to work professionally with each of them. We found him to be a man of incredible integrity and character. Also, very honest. These attributes meant, and stood for, a lot to us and they were displayed over and over in our time together. Not only as a real estate professional, but as a wonderful and caring father, son and grandson. If you are looking for an outstanding real estate agent to represent you, we would not hesitate to recommend Adam to be your number one choice. He has state of the art technology that he uses and continually shares with you, he is thorough, he keeps in close contact and always quickly returns phone calls or texts and markets your house to his best ability in today's real estate market. We totally support Adam's work with us and if we had another real estate transaction, he would be our first choice!! Enthusiastically, Nancy and Ron DeBrincat
    Oliver gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    As a first time buyer with a very specific idea of what I didn't like but not an exact specification to what I did want, Adam was able to show me homes that fit exactly my needs just from the ideas that I had conveyed to him. With each property tour he was helpful and gave me all the time I needed to look around at the property. He was very helpful when my picky tastes and conflicting specifications made the search very difficult. In terms of submitting offers, if I was ready to submit an offer he could do it same day or even right there at the property from his iPad, I had great confidence that he would follow through on the property I wanted. When I finally found the perfect property, it was a difficult time in that complex where units were getting snapped up by all cash buyers within a day of being on the market. He talked to the listing agent and explained my situation, my ability and intent to buy and sold me as a buyer to that agent. The listing agent put me in ahead of others to the short sale negotiator based on his interaction with Adam and weeks later I had a signed purchase offer for that property. I would recommend Adam above any other agents based on his speed and professionalism when submitting offers and paperwork, often getting paperwork in and offers accepted before other agents could.

    Good to hear from you! We love our location. It could not have worked out better for us. I often think of your help overall and with the home we are in today. It worked because of your knowledge of what we were after. Hope all is well for you. Regards, Dan G.

    Thanks so much for a wonderful real estate experience.  From finding our Newport peninsula duplex to a swift and successful closing of escrow, you were great!  We appreciated the fact that you made things very easy with online document signing, that you were always available, always pleasant, and always in problem-solving mode.  You even waited for the appliance repair man!   We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for superior service with a personal touch. In fact, we're looking forward to our next transaction with you! Linda and Kim S.

    Dave, I don't often refer individuals to others but I wanted to give you the names of two people who I feel are doing a remarkable job marketing the sale of our house in Coto de Caza. He is Adam Alcaraz of Newport Beach.  Although admittedly our house is not in the same category as your beautiful home, Adam has taken the time to develop and implemented a marketing strategy as if we were your next door neighbor.    Before placing our house on the market we interviewed well-known 'Coto brokers'.  We, however, decided to use Adam because of his marketing vision and promises he made to us.  The decision has proven to be a very good one for us!  Although we are still securing offers, we've already had some higher than any of the 'Coto brokers' felt was the fair market price of our house.   Adam has lived-up to every promise.  He also has been readily available when we have any questions.  We truly feel that he has our 100% interest.    I don't know the personal and/or contractual relationship that you have with your current representative, but, it may be worthwhile to at least call Adam.  Your home is too beautiful to have not been sold by now.  Histelephone number is 714.658.4147.  They also can be reached at    You can see just a part of hisefforts in the marketing of our house at  In the 'Galleries' section of the website you can view a video that they created.  The aerial views were done by a drone.    Before working with them on our sale I didn't know Adam, but he has obviously really impressed me.  I thought I would share my opinion with you.  Regards.   Leonard  Z

    My husband and I have used the services of the OC Collective for our past two home purchases as well as the sale of one home.    The OC collective maximized our valuable time by ensuring that we were shown high potential properties, assisted us with staging our home in addition to integration of technology to track our progress throughout the process. They leveraged resources to anticipate and answer our questions in a timely fashion to minimize the feeling of being overwhelmed. I even was able to sign most of the paperwork electronically on my cell phone while I was out of town traveling on business!  If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, flexible and enjoyable team, the OC collective will efficiently navigate you through understanding the real estate market, purchase, selling, escrow and moving processes! My husband and I think highly of the OC collective and have recommended them to our friends and co-workers.

    I've had the opportunity to work with Adam more than once and I couldn't recommend him more highly. Whether you are a seasoned investor or a first time home buyer, he will be able to exceed your expectations.  He knows more about Orange County than Google! One advantage of working with him, over other Realtors is that he has a long standing proven track record of success that truly ensures your offers are seen. Also, he has a very expansive network which means you get access to the best mortgage brokers, contractors, stagers, etc. I have been part of about 7 real Estate transactions and I can attest that Adam is the best!

    Thank you does not seem like enough.  We had listed our home for sale three times since 2006, prior to hiring you and your team.  We were so impressed with your professionalism, insight, and market knowledge, as well as your commitment to selling our home of 11 years.  The fact that our home sold after only three days on the market says it all.  The stager and photography were first-class and definitely gave our home the advantage it needed to stand out from the three other models on the market in our neighborhood.  Trust me, we have seen what some of other listings look like and your presentation of our home was by far the best.  You definitely went above and beyond in all aspects of our sale, from start to finish and for that we are grateful.  You were always available to answer our questions no matter how big or small, you made us feel like we were your #1 priority and to top it off you handled our lease in Esencia, top-notch service all around, Thank You!

    Dearest Adam... thank you for the lovely, encouraging words. I can't imagine having gone through the past few months without you.  From the beginning of the process trying to save our home to the actual move you never gave up on us...and believe me when I say that I realize I tried your patience and probably every other virtue you possess. You are an amazing man and I can't see anything but wonderful for you in 2016 and forever. You are in my prayers and thank you doesn't nearly express our gratitude for you. Ok I'm winding down now...ha ha! God Bless You!!! Steve and irene

    Adam provided exemplary service in my recent search for a home in South Orange County. He is professional, attentive and moved the process along swiftly, exceeding all my expectations.. I have worked with many realtors in the past but he is clearly in the top tier of real estate professionals. It  is my pleasure to recommend him wholeheartedly for your or your trusted loved one's next real estate transaction

    This letter of recommendation is for Adam Alcaraz, a broker for Coldwell Banker who helped get me a home modification so I could keep my house while I was in bankruptcy with Wells Fargo. He fixed the most devastating problem in my life with which was my fault. During my bankruptcy I was getting behind on my house payment. I called Wells Fargo and told this was not a problem because the house payment was included in the bankruptcy payment, however this is incorrect. Because of what they told me I continued to make the bankruptcy payment but not the house payment, most due to being in massive debt due to my wife's medical problems before she passed away. I went to the Veterans Administration for help and received benefits for the rest of my life due to my Military Service. I then received a letter from Wells Fargo stating that I owe $28,000 for missed payments and if I don't pay by July 31, 2018 the house will go into foreclosure. My bankruptcy attorney said I needed to either sell the house or speak to a broker who might be able to help me. Meanwhile, I received another letter stating that Wells Fargo is taking the house. Next I spoke to Adam Alcaraz and he helped me with all the paperwork for the home modification. During this time he was in contact with the Wels Fargo Modification Dept and kept giving me updates on what was happening. He let me know that all the paperwork was completed and sent in to the Modification Program. I had an interview with Wells Fargo on Aug 13th and got the call 4 day later that the modification was approved and my new house payment will start on Oct 1st. The whole process took only 3 weeks. I am very happy that I will be able to keep my home due to the help of Adam Alcaraz and would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation. He helped me get out of a very complicated and difficult situation and I cant thank him enough.

    Adam is an excellent advisor in all aspects of real estate transactions. He has a positive attitude and very good knowledge about the market. His commission achieved our expectations. He took care of the appraisal, suggested the necessary and unnecessary remodeling, helped us to find  contractor services to do the necessary remodeling and knew how to adjust the price of the house to fit the market demand. He generated a lot of traffic in the house. His advertisement strategy included excellent quality pictures and flyers and were properly modified when necessary. We will work with him on future real estate projects and suggest his services to our friends.

    If you are looking for a stress free sale of your property, look no further then Adam Alcaraz of Coldwell Banker. We recently sold our rental property in record time with an all cash full asking price offer with a ten day escrow. Could one really ask for anything more? Well, quite honestly it was taken care of under the watchful eyes of Adam. The entire experience was easy and dare I say, enjoyable! His calm manner, polished business style and personal touch put us at ease from the moment we met them. His marketing and technology skills were put into action immediately. Almost everything was done in the comfort of our home. We never felt pressured, always had our concerns addressed and literally flew through the sale. We highly recommend Adam for your excellent professional attitude in all aspects of the sale. We received everything from him we had hoped for and more! He was always in constant communication when we needed to speak to him with any questions or concerns during the entire process, especially when it came time for time sensitive buyer-seller negotiations including the management of a complex down-leg buyer for the transaction and closing.

    We were fairly new to the CA area and did not know a whole lot about the housing market. A friend of ours referred us to Adam and he was a huge help. We spent a few months doing some research and saving our money and Adam was very patient and helpful throughout the process. We never felt rushed or pressured and he was willing to give us his time and expertise. When the right home came along he helped us move into action and secure the first home we offered on! n nThe escrow and closing process proved to be stressful for us and Adam was a great resource to lean on when we had questions or needed help. We would definitely recommend Adam to anyone looking for an agent. He is very kind, professional and has a great deal of knowledge.

    Adam Alcaraz represented me when I sold my primary residence. He has have great expertise in the area. He was extremely responsive, communicated well with me, and helped me every step along the way.You can tell that he loves what he does, which is of great benefit to his clients. I felt that he provided excellent online advertisement and other effective marketing tactics, above and beyond what was expected. Note, I have worked with other excellent and trusted residential agents in the past to sell my investment properties, so I have a good benchmark for comparison. Adam was realistic in pricing my home, data driven, honest, truthful, and positive. He encouraged me only to do what was in my own best interest. When I was entertaining 3 different offers on my home, he objectively helped me navigate how to respond to all four and went the extra mile to make sure that my closing went smoothly. To that end, he worked with an escrow company that was excellent and thorough. He knows what he is doing. Overall, having Adam represent me was such a positive experience. His professionalism, experience, and expertise made a potentially stressful experience a highly positive one that was profitable and fair to all involved. I would highly recommend him to any family member or friend as an ethical, knowledgeable, efficient, and effective real estate team. I feel that I would trust him to help me in my next real estate transaction as well. Thank you, Adam Alcaraz.

    Adam Alcaraz was our listing agents for our home in Foothill Ranch,CA. Adam came into our home the end of May and suggested the listing price. He was encouraging, and provided all the information needed to arrive at our listing price.He was very knowledgeable and kept us informed on all the reviews and feedback remarks. Our first showing was May 25th and we CLOSED July 07! That is how he works. Proficient, and direct. There was a sticky situation in the end and Adam used his skills, integrity and professional tone to make the closing continue in a smooth fashion. In looking for a listing agent, honesty, integrity and knowledge of the real estate market are the key components to look for. Adam has it all. Adam Alcaraz should be commended for a job well done. Look no further. He is who you want to sell your home !! He is a gentleman and just the top of the list!
    Chris gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    Adam pretty much worked for me around the clock during my coast to coast move. Everything I texted him or asked him about a house he ran with immediately. He often spotted things about a home or an area and would steer me away from some since I didn't know the L.A. area at all. Great agent and  cared about me on a personal level.
    Jessica gave Adam 5 stars out of 5
    Adam is AMAZING!! He came in and handled business, our house sold in 3 days. It was a very stressful time and we came across some issues along the way but Adam was always there willing to help and available in our time of need to make things run smoother. I highly recommend him. My next home  purchase I will definitely use Adam.
