Pasadena Views Real Estate Team Philosophy:
Our team is all about transcending the common, and the average, and stepping outside the outdated Pasadena real estate market traditions. We implement the most progressive real estate techniques by applying web 2.0 technology alongside brilliant people and good old-fashioned customer service! We want you to have the best EXPERIENCE whether you are buying or selling your home.
Why a website about Pasadena real estate?
Because it’s difficult to find information about Pasadena neighborhoods, architecture, homes for sale, real estate market reports, mortgage information and advice all in one place.
If you are a Pasadena real estate investor, or are looking to buy a home, or own a home in Pasadena and its surrounding cities, it’s important to be abreast of the latest real estate information.
Real estate has always been a vehicle for building wealth. There is a lot of fear involved in buying or selling a home, condo or income property. A fear of the unknown. A fear of being represented by an unqualified or uneducated agent.
Our goal is to provide a website with on-line tools and information which will give power to the consumers in Pasadena and surrounding areas. Knowledge is Power!
Our promise to our readers is to provide you with:
~~~ AFREE Multiple Listing Search for Pasadena and the surrounding cities. Actually, this will allow you to search homes for sale throughout Southern California and will provide direct access to the Multiple Listing Service used by real estate agents. This tool will also allow you to create personalized home searches and/or track the real estate market at your own pace. You can create your own account, with individualized user name and password and access it at your convenience. The power of researching available properties is yours!
~~~ Weekly updated real estate market statistics for Pasadena, San Marino, San Gabriel, South Pasadena, Arcadia, Monterey Hills, and Alhambra. Check back each Monday for an updated graph of Median Home prices and Average Days on the Market for each city or register to receive automatic weekly emails as these reports are updated.
~~~ 365 Things To Do In Pasadena is a special section of this site that focuses on interesting activities, museums, restaurants, bars and pubs and just the best of Pasadena. We have created a list of suggested and recommended businesses that have been submitted by our readers which you can find here. We also welcome reader submissions of ideas and articles. Feel free to send in your recommendations and ideas for 365 Things To Do In Pasadena and of course, don’t forget to visit our Facebook Fan Page.
~~~ Loan and Mortgage Updates as they are taking place. Its been a true roller coaster over the last five to seven years with creative financing programs and tons of different options that were available to the consumers. As you know, the lending industry is changing and quite frankly, its a good thing for everyone. My goal is to provide you the most up to date information as these changes are taking place.
~~~ Our Personal Experience with Pasadena real estate. We will be posting many interesting articles about the buying and selling process. Secrets and strategies that sharp real estate agents are utilizing in the Pasadena area. Warnings, suggestions and educational posts.
About your Pasadena California Real Estate Agents: Irina Netchaev & Pasadena Views Real Estate Team
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me and my team. Before you select a Realtor to represent you, it’s important to understand the type of experience, tools, techniques and strategies, the real estate agent will use to your benefit.
Our team is focused on implementing the latest technology along with an “old fashioned” approach to selling real estate in helping you find your home or market your Pasadena home for sale. 91% of our buyers find us through our multi-media marketing and on-line presence. We utilize neighborhood websites, Featured Listings on Realtor.com, personal home websites, flash presentations and are members of numerous Multiple Listing Services allowing us to list your home on four different Multiple Listing platforms.
Your advocacy is our number one concern. We work for YOU and take our fiduciary responsibility as your Realtors very seriously. Whether my team helps you negotiate the price and terms for your first home or helps you get the best possible bottom line on the sale of your home, our objective is to be your advocate and implement all our experience and tools to reach YOUR goals.
Our team is Customer Service focused. We take the time to find out what is important to you and work towards reaching your goals. Since most of our business comes from referrals, we are not happy unless you are overwhelmingly satisfied with our services.
~ 72% of Irina’s sales are past clients or referrals.
~ Irina’s Listings sell in an average of 33 days. That’s 12% faster than the Pasadena Board of Realtor average of 37 days.
~ Irina’s percentage of sale price to list price is 103.5%. The Pasadena Foothill Board average is 100.4%. That’s an average of 3.1% more money in the seller’s pocket when a home is listed with Irina Netchaev.
On a home priced at $500,000, Irina could potentially save you $500 in interest and taxes (due to faster sale of home) and get you $15,500 more on the purchase price. That’s a difference of more than $16,000 on an average transaction!!!

“Irina just helped me sell my home in Burbank. ”Helped” is a huge understatement. I first met Irina when my boss referred me to her in 2007 when I wanted to buy a home in the Burbank area. Yes, I am one of the unlucky ones who purchased this wonderful home in 2007 when property values were at their all time high. Yet, Irina got me a very fair price, even for that time. Trying to sell now and get even close to breakeven was a pipedream….or so everyone told me. Irina was not deterred. She proposed a brillant strategy that included easy staging, a few touch ups, beautiful online photos and desription, and her impeccable sense for market trends to bring my home to market in a way to maximize its value. I had 6 offers in 4 days, and the house sold well above our asking price. She negotiated wisely through tight time frames, contingencies, and made it all feel very easy. She works with top notch partners, only the A team. I highly recommend working with Irina for any and all housing needs!” – Susan Strauss via Yelp
“We started looking for a house in the Pasadena/SGV area about 5-6 months ago. I stumbled upon Pasadena Views property blog one day, and found Irina. Within the first 10 minutes of first meeting with Irina, I was thoroughly impressed, and we knew we wanted to work with her. Irina was so thoughtful, organized, knowledgeable, and so responsive! Both my fiance and I have demanding jobs, so we can appreciate how quickly she responded to our emails, calls, text messages (and we had a lot at times). It was important for me to work with someone that not only knew the market well but can guide us through our first time home-buying experience, and ultimately help us get a home! We are so thrilled that we found a home that we loved and closed escrow last week !! We are even more thrilled that the whole process went so smoothly. From our offer to the loan to closing and everything in between, Irina gave us fantastic advise and really helped us make some tough decisions. All the people she recommended we work with including our lender were all incredible and truly made everything so easy for us. It’s such a competitive market out there so having someone we trusted and can get the job done made the biggest difference for our whole experience. We are incredibly lucky, and so happy we found Irina. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends and family. You will not regret your decision to work with her.” - Connie Liu via Yelp
“Five stars are not enough for Irina Netchaev and the Pasadena Views Real Estate Team. Irina sold my Pasadena home in just a few days from open house to escrow for a price far above asking. Her smart and comprehensive marketing strategy produced many strong offers. Irina explained clearly the merits and weaknesses of each of the top offers, and she handled the negotiations very professionally. She is very pleasant to work with, and she really knows the Pasadena area market. The Pasadena Views Team is tech-savvy and very effective at marketing, and I would recommend Irina and Pasadena Views to anyone.” - Elaine and Craig Maxwell via Yelp
“Thank you so so much for everything! You made our first time home buying experience a great one…even with all the bumps in the road We are so grateful to you and your team.” – Mindi Narusaki
“My husband and I worked with Irina when we purchased a house in Pasadena. We found her through Yelp. We can honestly tell you that Irina is as good as all the other reviewers have said. She is very professional and friendly. We decided to work with her immediately after our first appointment, and having her as our agent was definitely one of the best decisions that we’ve ever made.
Irina immediately suggested a few lenders that we got in touch with. The lenders she recommended are great choices. We got our pre-approval in a few days and started our house hunting trips. We found the house we love within a month and the seller accepted our first offer. Irina gave great recommendations for house inspectors, sewer inspectors, system engineer, termite company, along with many other great tips. The process of buying a house with her was easy and smooth.
Irina worked great with emails, and she responded to all our questions very quickly. She is very detail oriented, thorough, and always on top of things. Irina has a lot of experience and knowledge in the real estate business in the city of Pasadena, San Marino, South Pasadena, Arcadia, and surrounding areas. We would definitely recommend her to all of our friends who are interested in buying or selling houses in the area, and we will certainly have Irina as our agent again when we buy or sell houses in the future. She is the best real estate agent that we’ve ever met! Absolutely awesome!” – Tiffany Chiang
“Irina Netchaev is the epitome of professionalism and real estate expertise. My husband and I have successfully completed three transactions with Irena and we will never use another agent based upon our experience with her. In this tough market, it is that much more important to work with someone like Irina who has the background and connections to help achieve the desired results. Thank you Irina for being so great at what you do!” – Carrie Seidner
“I met Irina during the purchase of our townhome in 2004 – after nearly a half dozen prior real estate transactions over the years. Without exception, she was well-researched, energetic, proactive, and a personal delight to work with. We have since completed a sale/purchase to a new home and the experience was exceptional. The many amazing stories of her efforts, service, and personality can’t do her justice. – Thomas Dover
“Irina represented me, a home buyer, with purchasing our first home in California. She successfully fullfilled every need my husband and I demanded from the beginning to the end … Irina is truly a professional, reliable, and trustworthy agent and always in our highest esteem. An agent should be someone you can trust. Irina works hard, she’s smart and is truthful. I would not hesitate recommending her to handle future real estate sales or purchases on my behalf and perhaps yours, too…” – Cori Walworth
“Mathematicians have the unique ability to break complex equations down into their simplest form. Irina does just that for Real Estate! Her instinctive ability to collect data combined with her unique ability to market a home creatively makes her a dynamic resource in the Pasadena Real Estate market. With such intimate knowledge that Irina possesses over the real estate process, it’s no wonder she’s a “go to” resource to many buyers and sellers! Irina not only produces results, she does it with a certain charm and flair that makes you want to continue a relationship for years to come.” – Ricardo Bueno
“We hired Irina to both help us with our first home purchase as well as the sale of that home when we moved to the Central Coast. I always felt completely comfortable with her, with her business judgment, and with the results. At no point did I think she had anything but our best interests at heart during either process. On top of that she’s a great lady with high integrity and an excellent personality and level of professionalism. Would have continued to work with her had we stayed in the area.” March 7,2008″ – Robert and Melissa Hope
“Irina is amazing! Exceptional follow-through, accessible (day and night!), and knowledgeable. We bought our first home through Irina.” -Krisianna Bock
“We had spoken to many agents and found most of the houses they suggested less than appealing. Here is where Irina’s talent really showed and her expertise was most apparent. The homes she showed to us demonstrated a zeal for good taste and a diligence in work ethic.” -Saul and Tina Correa
“Irina’s patience in developing a strategy and creativeness in presenting an offer really proved to be the difference in the seller accepting the offer. Irina went way beyond the call of duty, kept us up to date on timelines, deadlines and documents to be completed while catering to our schedules. …I have already referred her to family and friends and will continue to do so!” – Hugo and Lisa Correa
“Thank you so much for all your help. Your personal touch in preparing my townhouse for sale was greatly appreciated. Your encouragement and professional advice relieved my concerns… You are a valued agent.” – Thomas Mike Griffin
“Throughout the process of searching for, making offers on, and finally securing a property, Ms. Netchaev proved herself to be a consummate professional. …Despite the difficulties of working in an over-heated real estate market, Ms. Netchaev always presented a calm, collected demeanor and ensured that all of our transactions flowed smoothly. I commend you for having such a capable and caring professional on your team, and look forward to working with Ms. Netchaev again.” – Anny Surmenian
The estimate of the property value helped us in keeping perspective about the sale and making our final decisions.” – Ben & Hideko Furuta
“Within five days of the Open House, on my home, I received five great offers. My profit was far more than I had ever hoped for. Not only was Irina’s professionalism apparent while selling my home, but she negotiated such a fantastic price for me on my new dwelling!” – Joyce Donato
“I chose Irina because of my personal knowledge of her work ethics. I knew I could trust her to do her best for me. I knew Irina would have good advice. Irina was terrific!!! She helped us get that extra money for the carpet – we really needed it!!!” – Lynn Mahlmeister
In my opinion Irina is THE person to go to for real estate in the Pasadena area. As a fellow professional, and a good friend, Irina has terrific knowledge and understanding of the Pasadena housing market and how to best assist buyers and sellers. She is a friendly, ethical person who makes you feel that YOU are her only client, and her use and understanding of technology will benefit any buyer or seller no matter how experienced or whatever the price range. Call her. You won’t regret it. – Jeff Dowler

Her understanding of the the market she serves, technology and what it takes to make her client’s properties stand out put her way ahead of the competition. It is a joy working with Irina.” – Nickie Rothwell

“Congratulations!!!!! Thank you! You are a great agent – very professional and knowledgeable and nice and I would definitely recommend you to family/friends.” - Yun Zhou
“Irina was thorough, professional, attentive to detail, and responsive to every question we posed (and there were lots!). There was no patter – she listened carefully, never pressured us into making a decision, but was always ready to guide us with information, research, and her extensive experience. We were confident at every stage that she had our best interests as her top priority. This was the third property I’ve purchased (all over the country), and by far the smoothest experience. We would be delighted to work with Irina again.” – Jenny Lowe
“Irina is very knowledgeable and responsive. She knows her business and the Pasadena market very well. She was able to advise us on how to sell our home and worked within our financial budget. She also was a great help during the negotiation and escrow process. I highly recommend her.” – Rosaline Gulati
“I would give the highest praise to Irina and her office for the experience I had in using her as a buying agent. Irina was both incredibly professional and a great support through some difficult situations in my first home-buying experience. I repeatedly felt that I was very lucky to have her as an agent, as she made what could have been a stressful situation really pretty easy to get through. I would never hesitate to recommend Irina to anyone.” – Scott Wadlow
“It goes without saying that Irina Netchaev is a pillar of professionalism. No stones are left unturned. Her research, feedback and manner of keeping us informed was impressive. She worked tirelessly to help us find a home and was diligent in making sure the transaction was handled in a seemless, smooth fashion This is a realtor you can trust and get to know as an integrated, thoughtful and caring person. Kudos to this Lady.” - Joseph Stauffer
“I’m a professional home stager and I work with a lot of real estate agents in Pasadena and throughout Los Angeles. I consider myself very lucky to be able to work with a handful of fantastic real estate agents, one of which is Irina Netchaev. I am often asked for real estate agents I would recommend, by my home staging clients. Irina is always at the top of my list because she does such a great job marketing and selling her listings. Besides having a very successful custom marketing plan for every home she lists, she is also a very strong negotiator for her clients’ interests. Most people don’t know how much negotiating can occur once an offer is presented and a house goes into escrow. Irina rides herd on unruly (and sometimes unprofessional) buyers agents to make sure the deal goes through and escrow closes. And she does it without breaking a sweat (or at least you won’t see her break a sweat). She is honest, ethical and well respected by other real estate agents. I recommended her to 2 clients this year (2011) and both homes went into escrow within a couple of weeks, one with multiple offers well over asking price. I would not hesitate to recommend her as either a buyers’ or a sellers’ agent. The best recommendation I can give is if I were going to sell my home right now, Irina would be my listing agent.” – Michelle Minch
“Irina was both my wife & my seller and buying agent. She did a very good job representing our interests through both processes. She was not only very professional but also did a go job in asking us the tough questions in why we were selling… but what we were looking for in home. Through both buying and selling we had encountered many agents & lenders of wide ranging ability levels and feel fortunate and grateful that Irina represented us through the journey and process.” - Ray Young
“I would highly recommend Irina to any prospective buyer or seller. I don’t believe we would have our house if it weren’t for her professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful help. We had a difficult escrow process from our very first offer, and she helped us navigate the process, made strategic recommendations and kept us confident and calm from the offer negotiation all the way through the move-in date. And it was a process! Before we found “the” house, Irina was great to tour homes with. She gave us very honest feedback and she read our interest quickly, helping to eliminate homes that we wouldn’t like. When the selling agent went dark on us and the sellers were reconsidering selling their home, Irina stepped in and made our case, ultimately winning us the house. I can’t speak highly enough of Irina, and I look forward to working with her again.” – Christy Shannon
“We first worked with Irina for the purchase of our townhouse in 2004. Having known her as a friend prior, we knew to expect her delightful personality and dedicated service. We could not have been more pleased with the intense attention to detail and overall results. Later, we entrusted Irina to sell that same townhouse as well as represent us in the purchase of our beautiful historic home in Altadena. Again, Irina not only delivered, but surpassed our every expectation. In difficult times, Irina can be counted on for wise counsel and flawless results.” – Lorin Wolf
