Dear Ray and Liz,
In the spirit of the holidays, it seems fitting to write you to tell you how much we appreciated your tireless efforts on our behalf in connection with the sale of our home at 464 Holly Street in Laguna Beach. Even though the Laguna real estate community was unanimous in their praise of our home as a stand-out property for north Laguna, the market proved to be tough. You were both components in what was ultimately a successful campaign to sell our property for a record price in our neighborhood. The transaction became very complicated and at times problematic. Your patience with a difficult buyer and buyer’s agent was remarkable. You provided great advice when the deal threatened to go sideways. We are very grateful clients. You are both fine examples of the kind of agents sellers should have at their side. Thank you so much for everything.
Kindest personal regards,
Kit and Art
We chose chose Liz and Ray to help us sell our oceanfront home on Gaviota Drive in Laguna Beach and were happy every step of the way. We felt confident they were the right people to get us the price we wanted, and make the process as easy as possible. Excellent problem solvers, knowledgeable about the market, and always available whenever we needed them.

We found Liz Comerford and Ray McAfoose to be professional, prompt, and responsive to each of our inquiries. We would certainly use them again to buy or sell our home.

To whom it may concern,
Within the last two years, I sold two properties, and referred a sale from a family member to Ray McAfoose and Liz Comerford. They were by far the best real estate professionals that I have ever dealt with.
The first property sold was a five-unit apartment complex in Laguna Beach that required
extensive repair. The buyer lives overseas and was extremely difficult to deal with. However with great patience and help from Liz and Ray, the property was successfully sold. They succeeded in finding repair professionals at reasonable prices, and guided me through the intricacies of Laguna Beach City Planning. I am not sure that there are many realtors who have their extensive knowledge to have been able to do this. The second property was a house in Corona Del Mar. This went smoothly, but their expertise made it simple. They found good contractors, and even went to the trouble of obtaining bids for the carpeting that saved me money.
Throughout the time I dealt with them, they were extremely honest and competent. When meeting with them, they were always on time and always handled the voluminous paperwork correctly. I could not recommend anyone more highly. I believe anyone who deals with them would unquestionably be pleased.
I recently sold a home in San Clemente left to me by my mother Sally Marsh, when she passed away. I asked Ray and Liz to manage the sale for me. I have known Ray for several years after he managed the sale of my mother’s previous oceanfront home on La Senda Drive in Three Arch Bay. During that time I have learned to trust his honesty and appreciate his professionalism. I live overseas, so I needed someone locally who could manage the day to day details involved in listing and selling a property.
Ray and Liz did that and more. Even though we were prepared for a three month wait to sell. They actually found our buyer in a few days and closed escrow less than two months from the day the house was listed. It is not an exaggeration to say we could not have done it without them. So I recommend Ray and Liz to all that are selling or buying. I value Ray as a friend and as a consummate professional.

Ray and Liz,
Thanks for the Herculean efforts regarding our sale. Much appreciated. I would be pleased to recommend you and Liz for the professionalism, determination, advice, positive spirits and courtesy you showed every step from initial preparation to closing the transaction. Should I need to sell/buy property in the future, I will definitely call upon you. Thanks again…
We wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the incredible job you did for us this year. As you know, we had a timeline that we wanted to stick with in closing the escrow of our home in Laguna Beach. Your experience and knowledge of the market convinced us to price our home accurately, your beautiful marketing brought the home to the public’s eye and your keen sense of negotiation completed the package. We closed on time, and were very happy every step of the way.
We will miss our day to day conversations, take care and continued success to you!

Liz and Ray do a wonderful job for their clients. With their marketing program spelled out in advance in writing, you know exactly what to expect from them, but they actually provide many more services than those promised. They are true professionals.
I have had my share of agents, some good and some great, but Ray and Liz are a cut above. The real difference is the care and diligence they provided. They were involved in my transaction whenever I needed, and could anticipate to be available even when it was not obvious to me.
Thanks for your help selling our condo in Laguna Beach. We were very impressed with how you handled the whole transaction. Your help with setting up staging, repairs and more was priceless. The listing and website you put together was truly outstanding and I think that made a big difference with how fast you were able to get the deal closed. Considering how pleased we are with what you did for us, we would definitely recommend to anyone to use you as their agents.
We would like to recommend Liz and Ray to anyone wishing to efficiently sell their home. As real estate professionals ourselves, we knew Comerford and McAfoose was the right ticket for us. They certainly did not disappoint us in the sale of our Laguna Beach home just 4 days after listing it! Ray and Liz work together very well to benefit their clients. They kept us well informed the entire time, and created an individual marketing plan that produced excellent results. They utilize not only current technology, but expert negotiation skills and networking opportunities. They truly cared not only for our home, but for us as well.

Even in the most difficult transactions they keep a balance of professionalism, shrewd negotiations, reasonableness, and ethics.” They thoroughly know the nuances and neighborhoods of this town. They have been successful for many years because they assure their clients’ goals are met, and does that with diligence.
