I worked with Cassandra and her partner, Sierra Thomas, on the purchase of my dream home in spring of 2022. They are absolute dreams to work with, and their friendliness and encouraging energy combined with a relentless attention to detail make them the perfect agents in my book. Add in extensive expertise and you get exemplary service. They knew when I was comfortable and not. They knew how to be gentle with reality checks. And they knew when I was trying to talk myself into deals or properties that weren't for me. They never told me what to do, but gently helped me find my way to what I wanted, even when I wasn't sure I could pull it off. And Sierra and Cassandra held my hand through all the bumps of escrow and closing and beyond. I could not have been in better hands. Though I have no plans to ever move again, I would turn to them if I did, and I would recommend them to anyone I know and like. I simply cannot express enough gratitude for the level of attention, care and service they provided.
Cassandra has been so helpful in helping me finding me a home. She is the perfect combination of warm and competent: very knowledgeable, listens to my needs and concerns, and I've never felt pressured in the process. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Cassandra was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with in either buying or selling real estate. In this instance, we were purchasing in Santa Monica, and she was a true advocate for our interests. She was there with us from beginning to end, and her knowledge of the real estate market and the process was truly invaluable.
Cassandra is professional, timely and detail oriented. She understands the CA real estate market and teaches very well. We were lucky to work with her and will do so again.
We could not have asked for a better partner in buying our first home in Del Rey! Cassandra guided us through the process from start to finish. She was extremely responsive and patient as we saw many homes before we were ready to put offers in. She helped us negotiate all components of our final offer, staying in touch with the sellers agent to help us understand what we needed to do to remain competitive, including referring us to a lender who could move quickly. Once our offer was accepted, her and her team were on top of every stage of escrow. We honestly could not have done this without her and I would highly recommend her!
I can't recommend Cassandra highly enough. The tl;dr: she knows everyone and everything about this business in LA, and will guide you through each step of the process. The experience is not dissimilar (I can only imagine) to being placed on a magic carpet, levitated above and over each house-hunting obstacle, and dropped into the home you desire. She is professional, has a great sense for negotiating, good judgment, extensive experience about the LA housing market, a contact for each home ownership-related matter you can think of, and is a wonderful person to boot. I worked with her during one of the busiest stretches of my career when I had an average of 10 minutes a day to devote to the process, and she didn't just make it work, she made it run seamlessly from start to finish. I don't know how she did it, but it was impressive enough for me to write this review.
Cassandra has been an absolute DREAM to work with - she is organized, quick to get things done, beyond friendly, and does everything she can to make sure her clients are happy. I would 10/10 recommend working with Cassandra as she will make your experience seamless :)
I would certainly work with Cassandra again and I’m fact have already recommended her to my friends. She was professional, diligent, energetic, knowledgeable, and always had my best interest in-mind throughout the time she helped me buy my first home. Cassandra is one-of-a-kind and I’ll definitely work with her again when possible.
We were lucky to have Cassandra on our side as a buyers' agent. She knows the market very well, works with a great team of professionals who make sure that every part of the paperwork-heavy process goes well, and clearly explained each step when we were in escrow. We always felt like she had our back. She knows great inspectors and contractors and scheduled many inspections on our behalf, and we'd be happy to recommend her to our family and friends.
They did an amazing job for me. In particular, Cassandra Monnastes worked incredibly hard to make it happen. She worked tirelessly to help get it staged perfectly and to show the property during challenging circumstances (COVID). She found me an all-cash buyer and we closed the deal in less than 60 days from listing the property. Cassandra is a great negotiator and really was looking out for my best interests.
Simply put, Cassandra is an exceptional real estate agent. She has been indispensable to us in navigating the process of relocating from Manhattan to Los Angeles. What would normally have been a daunting and difficult move has, thanks to her expertise, been easy, enlightening and efficient. Her knowledge of the ins and outs of every LA neighborhood is invaluable to anyone who needs help to relocate.
We had a wonderful experience working with Cassandra. She is extremely good-natured, intelligent, and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to ensure that we fully understood, and were comfortable with, the process. She was extremely responsive to questions both during and after the sale closed. We would 100% recommend her
We absolutely loved working with Cassandra and couldn't recommend her more highly! We were first time home owners and very unsure of the process, Cassandra took her time meeting with us and understanding our needs and concerns, and helped us find the perfect home. More than that, we had countless questions after our offer had been accepted, and Cassandra was available to help and guide us at every step during Escrow. She talked to my husband for an hour on the phone numerous times, answering all his detailed questions, following up where appropriate, and negotiating on our behalf to get what we wanted. She is a really sweet and grounded person and we never felt like she was trying to push us at any point. If you're looking for a knowledgeable and helpful guide through the process, Cassandra is the person for you!
Cassandra was a dream to work with. On a short closing deadline with a major hiccup along the way - first financing source fell through - she helped us figure everything out and close on time. Thanks to her, we got our dream home and are moving in next week. Thanks Cassandra!
Cassandra was amazing to work with! She was quick to respond to our questions and made sure that we were on track with any open items. We are so glad that we had Cassandra guiding us throughout this whole process. We couldn’t have done it without her!
The best decision we made throughout the entire home buying process was working with Cassandra. She helped us figure out major decisions like where we wanted to live and what type of home we needed, while also making the process as simple and streamlined as it could be. She worked around our schedule and always ensured we were comfortable with our decisions. Highly, highly recommend.
I'd recommend Cassandra unconditionally. She was always willing to go the extra mile to get the deal done while still representing our interest zealously.
Cassandra is a true professional and someone that we've worked with more then once. She always delivers exceptional knowledge and customer service. She is the glue that helps keep deals together and she knows how to navigate the rapidly changing real estate landscape.
We met Cassandra at an open house in Santa Monica and decided to use her as our buyer's agent for that very apartment.
Cassandra was fantastic and we highly recommend her. From the very outset she was courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable. She guided us through the entire buying process and was always available for any questions and negotiating on our behalf.
We got the apartment we wanted thanks to her ability!
If you are looking for an agent Cassandra is the one.
Cassandra is an ideal agent for those looking for a very responsive, knowledgeable, caring, organized, and easy going agent. We could not give her a higher recommendation!
We met Cassandra while looking at a few open houses in the Venice area and eventually started to ask her for advice. We found her style to match well with ours - as we had been turned off by a lot of the "cheesy Venice agents".
The house we loved came back on the market unexpectedly and she helped us execute a plan to make it our home. Aside from the usual process points, she went above and beyond in helping us make some life changing decisions (both big and small). I would also add she has a great perspective for young couples in terms of what to think about when buying a home in the Venice area (but I'm sure great for all buyer profiles).
Would 100% work with her again and refer to anyone!
Cassandra just helped me buy my first home. I absolutely loved working with her. She really listened to what I wanted and was respectful of my budget. I never felt pressured and always felt that she was looking out for my best interests. Absolutelty recommend!!
Cassandra is a wonderful agent and lovely person. She is so kind and knowledgeable and has gone above and beyond for us. We highly recommend her in every way and would never think of buying a house without her.
Cassandra was excellent in every respect - reliable, smart, hard working, highly knowledgeable. She is highly dedicated, and help with absolutely every detail perfectly. Of the 30+ brokers we met, she was by far the most professional, the most helpful and the hardest working, and really put in the work to help us with our first home purchase (and we were pretty picky about everything).
Highly recommend working with Cassandra. She was amazing to work with. Me and my fiance had never bought a home before, Cassandra helped walk us through the process and offered a ton of knowledge on what to expect and look out for. She was extremely responsive and was able to negotiate and close quickly on a house we are very happy with - both with the price and property.
