Real Feedback from Our Clients

Here’s what some of our Happy Sellers have said about working with us. If you need a fast and easy transaction without the hassle of listing, we’re the team for you

We are an old couple who have done and seen a lot. However, we have never sold a house. We dreaded dealing with real estate agents and to follow their advice for improvements, piles of paperwork, personal involvement and ‘house showings’.

A SoCal Home Buyers ad solved our “fears” and resulted in a beautiful, easy alternative. We sold the house fast, at a fair price and near zero effort and cost on our part. Thank you, way to go! We are happy and plan a big family vacation.

Mr. & Mrs. R. Von Heeringen, Banning, CA

I received multiple offers weekly over the past several years to sell my home, once I was ready to do so I called multiples of numbers. Although I received many competitive offers So Cal Home Buys felt right, they viewed the home, gave me an honest, expected quote without low-balling, and made the process simple and fast with no games or gimmicks.

Win-Win for everyone involved and much appreciated. Thank you!”

T. Peterson, Cherry Valley, CA

Doug, Thank you again for your working with us on the Robinson Property. It was a great experience from start to finish. The whole process from start to finish exceeded my expectations. Communication is very important and your team have exemplary skills in that area. All the best.

Greg B, Riverside, CA

For us to get a fair price and all this convenience and walk through it in under 3 weeks, is pretty amazing.


Corona, CA

Thank you for the most pleasant & professional real estate transaction I’ve experienced in a long long time! Stellar performance starting with you, Doug; then, Lisa. So helpful and friendly on the phone; Then, Kristen, so quick to respond to my phone calls, questions & concerns; then valerie & others at Title 365. Very helpful & customer friendly.

Lastly, easy, efficient & personable when he stopped by to inspect the house. You’ve assembled a great team Doug, they serve you well! Thank you for your being so understanding of the situation here! Much appreciated. You can ensure that I will refer you every chance I get & then some!

I still can’t believe that we closed on time with no issues? When does that ever happen anymore?

Super job to you all!

Marilyn M, Victorville, CA

Best experience in selling a property. From agreed on price to close of escrow. Good communication with little effort from me. I highly recommend.

Laura O, Perris, CA

Our experience was top notch from beginning to end. Everyone treated both my Mom and me with courtesy and just helped out in getting all of the documents in order so that the sale would go smoothly.

Lisa Parker, Valerie Barker and Brian Stroh rocked when we had even the smallest question or issue. We were offered top dollar for Mom’s house and escrow began immediately, no hassle, nothing, just simply worked with us. Thank you all for such a great experience in what was a hard decision to make in selling the family home.

Julie & Glenna S, Riverside, CA

We still can’t believe how simple the process was for us. Doug always returned calls and did what he said he would do. We would highly recommend working with him.

John L, Pomona, CA

After a loss in my family, I needed to sell the house quickly. Kristen, Valerie and Doug were more than helpful. I thought that because my situation was unique and out of the ordinary that the experience was going to be less than enjoyable, however, they handled the situation with extreme professionalism.

Nikkie R, Hacienda Heights, CA

Living in South Carolina and trying to sell a house (probate) in California over the phone, I expected some monumental problems or at least some conflict of promises. Your staff “Lisa” sent me the contract to buy the house “as-is” and the process moved to the escrow company for completion with little or no pain. I felt the price was fair and consistent with the condition of the house. I wish more things in life would be this pleasant. Thank you!

Richard S, San Diego, CA

After it was all settled and done, it was definitely the right call to sell to Doug & SoCal Home Buyers


Anaheim, CA

The selling of our home went very smoothly. All done very quickly & professionally. You gave us a great bid making it easier to decide on which buyer to go with.

Richard N, Barstow, CA

Lisa was wonderful. She was very responsive and efficient at keeping us updated every step of the way. From the moment I talked to her, I felt that she truly cared about our situation. That feeling continued after talking to Gavino and Doug. Thank you all!

Caren C, San Jacinto, CA

Doug, Valerie, Lisa and Kristen;

Thank you all for the help and professional work that you all have done for me to sell my home so quickly.  It was a pleasure doing business with you all.  I will definitely refer your company to anyone that wants to sell their property.  By the way—thank you so much for the cup of coffee—I’ve not had a starbucks before—now I know why—$5????

Joyce S, Colton, CA

Doug’s approach to buying is simple and straight forward. He took the hassle OUT of a monumental task. When I had questions he followed up promptly. Doug was very accommodating. He is a man of his word. It seems too good to be true… but it IS true!

Victoria H, Canyon Lake, CA

This process & working with Doug & his team, was smooth & Easy!

What a relief to not worry about moving tenants out, fixing up home & then having to pay a realtor & closing costs. Instead, just filled out easy escrow paperwork & got check in mail all within 30 days! Would recommend highly!

P.S. I did already refer you to Bonnie Y., so she may be calling you!

Linda E, Hesperia, CA

The whole experience was FANTASTIC! My parents would be so happy also! Thanks for your kindness at a difficult time!

Sherrie C, Corona, CA

I’m very very glad we got ahold of you Doug. I appreciate everything you did. You were really on top of things.


Rialto, CA


I can’t thank you enough for your great attitude, patience and professionalism! When you first contacted me I wanted nothing to do with you or anyone else who tried to call me about the sale of my property.

After talking with you, you eased some doubts. I still had some hesitations to sell but you told me it’s real easy and you’ll be able to walk me through almost all of it.

I’m so glad I listened to you! You saved me thousands in realtor fees!!

Richard L, Corona, CA

Three years ago, I sold my California property to Doug and his wife, Andrea. The transaction was simple, quick and very fair. Our communications have been forthright and pleasant. It is a joy to now count them as friends also.

It is without hesitation that I highly recommend the Van Soests to anyone who is considering them for a real estate transaction. They are fine people with high ethics and proven performance.

Kerry J, Riverside, CA

Easiest sale I ever made. Things went so smoothly. Was amazing. Thanks!

Ronald F, Moreno Valley, CA

We are very pleased with the way you worked with us on selling our rented home in Apple Valley. The transaction was smooth and easy and simple. We like your way of doing business. Our renters were also pleased with the transition and seemed to like you as well.

We particularly appreciated the help of the escrow in assisting us in completing all the necessary paperwork.  We’ll be sure to recommend you to any of our California friends when they want to sell their homes.

Mike & Virginia F, Apple Valley, CA

I would just like to express my gratitude in making the selling of my house a flexible and worry-free process.  Doug was very patient and worked with my time frame in my moving process.  It was a pleasure to work with this company.

It has helped me experience some financial freedom with my debts and allowed me to move forward with another home for my growing family.  I will definitely refer friends, family and/or co-workers if they have any opportunities to sell their home.

I am very thankful for the fast, flexible service. Thank you so much!!

Cecilia S, Rialto, CA

SCHB is an awesome company. They were there all the time through the whole process. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone that wants efficient results at a bargain price. Southern California Home Buyers all the way.

Arlene - Socal-home-buyers-review

When I first saw you and after you started talking to us I felt good. I felt like you did your homework.

Rose & Arlene S.

San Bernardino, CA

I had to sell my Dad’s condo when he died in California. I lived 3000 miles away and knew no one in California. Got a letter from Doug Van Soest, and called him. After a couple of phone conversations about selling my condo, I knew he was the right choice. I needed a trustworthy, sensitive professional person to take care of the selling of the condo- Doug Van Soest did an amazing job! Thanks again!

John H, Palm Springs, CA

THANK YOU for purchasing my home in Long Beach and sending a “Thank you letter” with a starbucks gift card; I have already enjoyed a cup of coffee with the gift card.

You should know that everyone on your team starting with Lisa to the escrow closing team was kind and professional. I first of all personally appreciated the expediency of a response to my inquiry to sell my property via a phone call, an emailed offer, and an on-site visit. You should know that your team and contacts expediency and professionalism is what set you apart from the other investors.

Within 30 days any and all of my questions and concerns were answered, we entered and closed escrow, and I appreciated the personal and professional touch from start to finish!
if an opportunity comes up for me to refer you, or use you again myself, I will definitely call upon you and your team! Keep up the great work!

Marcia P, Long Beach, CA

I live out of state and wanted to sell the house. I met with several RE agents for an estimate (and 5-6% commission-for them). Decided I did not want to do any repairs or inspections so I called SoCal home buyers. The offer was comparable to estimates but with no repairs, warranties, or termite inspections, Doug was available any time if I had any questions.( We texted a lot).

Danielle from the office checked in with me every week. Fidelity Title did an excellent job – as I had many questions for them. They even found an acceptable notary less than a mile from my home! The entire process was fast and hassle-free.

Everything was done by e-mail or mail and I didn’t have to make another trip to Calif. I had an excellent experience with SoCal home buyers and would recommend them. Thank you very much – Doug and Co.!!!

Joanne Z, Murrieta, CA


I was so stressed about selling my house and this being my 1st time I had no clue what i was doing. They made it so easy and understandable and kept me in the loop about everything I felt like I was dealing with friends it was a truly fantastic experience.

Ashley F, La Quinta, CA

I am very satisfied doing business with you! I would definitely recommend everyone to sell there property to you! Very Honest, Professional and very Helpful!!
