Cassandra brings a deep appreciation and broad knowledge of the West LA area to her work as a Buyer’s Agent. She left a real estate career in Northern California and moved here that same year after visiting in 2007 and falling in love with Santa Monica.
Cassandra’s concierge approach to real estate sales means that she tailors her services to each individual client. Whether first-time buyers, or experienced investors, she listens carefully to her client’s needs, concerns, hopes, and dreams. Cassandra uses her well-honed negotiating skills to achieve for her buyers the best possible terms of purchase and her goal is to exceed expectations. The joy and enthusiasm Cassandra has for living on the Westside inspires her work.
Cassandra recently listed and sold my home in Los Angeles. Not only was the entire process smooth and professional, she was also able to exceed my sale…price expectations. I highly recommend working with her on either the buying or listing side. She cares deeply about her clients and it shows.
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.
I've worked with several real estate agents in the past and was never happy with any of them. I'm glad we found Cassandra through a referral, she's been…great in all aspects. First of all she's not pushy at all, she wants to make sure you're 100% comfortable with what you're buying. Second she's extremely reliable and precise: she followed up on 10s of things and never once dropped the ball on anything. She went above and beyond her role and helped with pretty much every aspect of our purchase.
I highly recommend her, I know if we ever have to buy/sell again we won't consider anyone else!
Cassandra is simply the best real estate agent out there. We had terrible experiences in the past with our agents, but Cassandra is totally at another level. She…is extremely knowledgeable about real estate market and the west side in particular. She is very responsive and resourceful, hard working and super precise. She brings all her knowledge and resourses to help you taking decisions, always patient, flexible and never pushy. She is amazing at negotiating and doing her client best interest. I couldn’t recommend her enough!
I can only say positive things about Cassandra. The full experience was top of the line! Her proffesionalism, knowledge of the market and her ability to negotiate…enabled me to buy a beautiful town home that got 4 offers after only 3 days on this hot market. She has been extremely helpful too during the process of moving in and setting up my new place. I am so happy that Cassandra is my realtor and I highly recommend her.
Cassandra was wonderful to work with. She was surprisingly knowledgable about an area she usually doesnot work in. I dragged her there! I suspect that…she did a lot of research. She was on top of everything, but did not pressure us to do any thing on her schedule. She was fast when we needed her to be and slow when slow was best for the negotiation. Cassandra is pleasant and clear in all of her dealings, with everyone. I loved working with her and I think you would, too.
if I could have given Cassandra six stars for everything I would have. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Venice in general, and was able not just to advise…on the houses we looked at, but also provide advice on everything in the neighborhood as part of the whole lifestyle (where to eat, shop, work out, etc.). As part of the whole process she became a trusted friend, and we really relied on her to help us every step of the way. Cassandra’s negotiation skills are truly excellent and she was able to get what we wanted, where we wanted, and at the price we wanted. She was also great to communicate with - very friendly and professional, and also very quick to respond to any request we had. We really couldn’t have found a better person to work with, and we definitely look forward to working with her again.
Cassandra Monnastes is an exceptional real estate professional to deal with. She leveraged her knowledge of the local area, real estate experience, outstanding responsiveness and incredible support to…land me a property I love coming home to every day. I highly recommend Cassandra.
Cassandra has been a tremendous support in the process of relocating to the Los Angeles area. It's been helpful that she knows the ins and outs of every…neighborhood I've inquired about (the schools, community happenings, off market properties, shopping area). She has made what would normally be a daunting and overwhelming process fun and easy. I look forward to closing on my first California home with her.
Cassandra is amazing! We were beyond happy having her with us through the process of bidding on multiple properties. It was a stressful and at times frustrating experience,…but Cassandra was there to guide us through it. We ended up with our dream house and cannot thank her enough. We highly recommend Cassandra. She is knowledgeable, patient, calm and above all just a very pleasant and honest person, which can be hard to find among real estate agents.
Cassandra is awesome. As aggressive or laid back as you need her to be. Helped me through every step of the process including helping coordinate some stuff most…realtors probably wouldn't bother with or make the time for.
We loved working with Cassandra to buy our first home! We were on-again-off-again for nearly 2 years trying to get into the Westside market, and Cassandra was…always there when we needed her / found something we liked. Once we finally found a home, Cassandra worked quickly with the selling agent to get offers in and answer our questions in a timely fashion. She never once had a bad attitude; and always a smile on her face. We got an absolutely incredible deal on our home and we couldn't have done it without Cassandra. She also referred many useful folks to use including our Mortgage Broker (Jonathan O'Donnell at PERL, AMAZING) and several contractors.
Cassandra has been terrific....knowledgeable, experienced, honest, hardworking. Will go the extra mile whenever necessary. Puts the client first and foremost. And a pleasure to work with!

Cassandra helped me find and purchase my first home and I couldn't be more grateful. She was so communicative throughout the process and always gave her honest…opinion about how to handle things. I ended up beating out several other offers because of her educated negotiating tactics and knowledge of the process. Having bought a house before everything felt a little overwhelming, but she too the time to explain everything and keep me on track during a very short escrow period. Even beyond the closing of the deal she's been in constant contact making sure I have everything I need to deal with repairs and questions for the previous owner/listing agent. Can't recommend Cassandra and Pardee enough!
We had a truly wonderful experience working with our agent Cassandra and the entire team at Halton Pardee. Our agent Cassandra was incredibly knowledgable, kind, patient, generous with…her time and professional. In a (ridiculously) red hot real estate market where every house we liked seem to have 10 all cash, over asking price offers, we were starting to feel like it was going to be impossible to find a home that we could afford in the area we wanted. Cassandra kept the hope alive for us and we just closed escrow last week on our first house.. in a lovely neighborhood we had almost given up on. I'm filled with gratitude for our agent and everyone at Halton Pardee that helped make it happen for us.
We had a wonderful experience working with Halton Pardee. Our agent Cassandra Monnastes truly went above and beyond in making sure the process went as smooth as…possible for us. Not only was she was knowledgeable, responsive, and attentive to detail, but she really advocated for what was best for us throughout our search. Thanks to her guidance and hard work, we were able to finally buy our first home as newlyweds. I can't recommend Cassandra and the Pardee team enough!
We recently closed our second transaction with the help of Halton Pardee. This time we were buyers and worked with Cassandra Monnastes. Our research lasted for over a…year and we considered different types of houses from brand new construction to houses in need for renovation to tear-down properties. Cassandra was always very supportive and responsive and we feel she went above and beyond to answer our questions and concerns. We also happened to be out of the country for most of the escrow process and Cassandra was on top of every step and made the experience very easy for us. It was such a pleasure working with Cassandra that we will miss her now! Thank you Tami for connecting her to us. What sets Halton Pardee apart is that they truly make your life easier!
I'm extremely happy about buying a house with Halton Pardee. Cassandra Monnastes acted as my buying agent. She was exceptional: Knowledgeable, responsive and meticulous. I simply…presented her with the outcome I wanted (in terms of price, location, style, etc) and she made it happen. I would absolutely purchase property with the assistance of this firm again.
Cassandra Monnastes provided amazing service to help us find and purchase a prime condo in the SM/Venice/MDR area. Once we narrowed into the target, she moved very quickly…and was able to get a successful deal completed.
Her integrity and local knowledge was key to determining the right offer for the property in this highly competitive Santa Monica real estate market where a miscalculation either…way can mean paying too much or missing a great opportunity. I am happy with the price, location and quality of my my new home.
Through out the appraisal and inspection, and closing process her follow up to my questions was timely and to the point. Her feedback was just as diligent. Overall, a first rate professional through all aspects of the transactIon.
My husband and I have been working with Cassandra Monnastes at Pardee and couldn't recommend her any higher! She has been amazingly supportive of our needs and…very responsive, via texts or calls, day or night (!) whenever we have a question or concern. Currently we are going through Escrow (as first time buyers!) and this process could not be going any smoother. Through the process we really felt as though Cassandra had our best interests in mind, and we would recommend Pardee and Cassandra to anyone and everyone looking for a knowledgeable and savvy buyers agent.
