THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I really can hardly believe it. I am so sad and so relieved all at once. Anyway, you have given us a great gift because our lives are going to be so much simpler going forward.
Truly, I never expected that this would be such a challenge and you are simply amazing and wonderful with all you handled, always with such grace!

Sue Carr, Anne Loveland and Janet Loveland represented us in the sale of our home in Hancock Park as well as the purchase of a Hancock park condominium . We interviewed 3 sets of brokers at the outset before choosing Sue Carr, Anne Loveland and Janet Loveland. From the beginning these ladies stood out based on their energy and engagement, honesty, as well as their knowledge of the Hancock Park market. They guided us on what we needed to do to our home to maximize sale price while at the same time not spending unnecessarily and worked thoughtfully with us on the timing. They had a plan and executed extremely well. Ultimately we received multiple offers on our home and sold for a price that we felt reflected the care we had put into designing and maintaining our home. With these 3 ladies we always had someone available to answer our questions and work with us to get where we needed.

Anne is enormously responsive and wise. She took care of every detail expertly and with grace. Wonderful to work with. She presented our property beautifully and negotiated a more successful than expected sale. 5 stars!
— The Schwartz Family
Anne Loveland is an example of a premier real estate agent and upholds all the high expectations of her grateful clients. Having worked with other agents, she is the gold standard against whom we judge all other agents. Her experience in working with first time sellers is especially valuable and we know we could not have done it without her. Additionally, she is charming, warm and endlessly encouraging; Anne is a true pleasure to work with.

As we were selling our home we were also looking at rentals. Sue Carr, Anne Loveland and Janet Loveland patiently showed us many properties. When we determined that we were better off moving to a condo we had tricky situation with a seller who had already had two cancelled escrows. Anne Loveland worked with us on a strategy to overcome the sellers concerns and get us to a successful purchase. The sale of our home closed 2 days before we closed on the purchase of our new condo. With Sue’s guidance we had negotiated sufficient lease back time to allow us to complete our move comfortably.
Sue Carr, Anne Loveland and Janet Loveland are consummate professionals with a heart, tons of energy and knowledge. We highly recommend this winning team.

In a vast sea of real estate agents, it is often overwhelming to find the right one, and one that actually delivers critical market insights and actual results. I was fortunate to connect with Anne Loveland (and her partner Sue Carr) of Loveland Car Properties. I have bought and sold a number of homes through the years, but no one emerged as my strong partner and advocate during my home purchase process as prominently as Anne. Anne Loveland not only helped identify exactly the right home, she masterfully navigated a frenzy bidding war for the home I desperately wanted. Every step during the process, Anne provided critical knowledge and expert advice that allowed me to purchase the right home (and that is a critical word “right” home). She was not out there to push any house that may have appeared good, but had flaws, or was over priced. She told me when to walk away, and what to pursue. In my experience, there are agents that don’t possess the high moral and ethical standards essential to the home buying or selling process. Anne, without exception, sets the bar extremely high not just for the Los Angeles real estate market, but for the industry overall. Also of note, during my first transaction with Anne (yes, I have now used her several times) I was out of the country during an important part of the home inspection process. Not once did I worry that process was not moving forward seamlessly, and not once did I question Anne’s ability to have my best interest top of mind. She is the consummate professional. And during my second real estate transaction with Anne, she was able to identify an incredible property before it even hit the market. This pocket listing would never have been made available to me without Anne. She is dialed in, knowledgeable, and has a vast network of contacts that allows any buyer or seller to hugely benefit. It really would be silly to use anyone else, when you can simply have the best. Anne Loveland and Sue Carr are the best, and beyond lovely. I can’t wait until I have another opportunity to work with them again. Do yourself, your family and your livelihood a great favor, connect with Anne Loveland. And yes, you’re welcome.
— JC Cutler
It’s no surprise that Anne Loveland is so highly respected in the Los Angeles real estate industry. This is a difficult time to be a home buyer, but Anne was a delight to work with, and from day one my wife and I felt like we were in extremely capable hands every step of the way. As Anne took us to showings she shared her extensive knowledge of the market, educating us and helping us recalibrate our needs and expectations, so that when the right house finally became available, we were ready and able to make an offer with the necessary levels of confidence and comfort. We really appreciated Anne’s honesty and integrity. She never pressured us into a decision, but instead gave us the information we needed to make up our minds. She was always available to answer questions or to calm nerves, and willing to go the extra mile when needed. It’s such a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with someone who is just, flat out, really good at her job. Anne Loveland is a true pro, and we would recommend her without hesitation.
— Delaney Heldens Family
The Loveland Carr Team (“Anne Loveland”, “Janet Loveland”, and “Sue Carr”) were truly exceptional — fully committed, full service, can-do, highly strategic and extraordinarily knowledgeable about Hancock Park. They guided my brothers and me, who do not live in LA but needed to sell my stepfather’s home following his death, in all matters (arranging for the house to be repainted and staged, developing a creative marketing plan, understanding the complexities of selling a home that was subject to two trusts, recommending the perfect list price that led to numerous bids, communicating closely throughout the process, helping us assess the pros and cons of each bid, handling the big and small details that my brothers and I simply did not have the bandwidth to cover). I cannot be more effusive in my thanks and praise!
— P. Thomas
Loveland Carr team did fantastic job representing my family in the sale of our aunt’s house.
1. Communication – I could always reach Sue Carr, or received a call back in 30 minutes
2. Resources – the Team had resources for(and managed), cleaning of the house, disposal of paint, appraisal of antique furniture, etc.
3. Experience – the transaction was complex, and the Team managed the issues related to a 1031 transaction for the buyer and “conveyance” issues – also, the Team has significant expertise in the Hancock Park area, and prepared the “comps”, and assisted with setting the sales price
4. Sale of House – the Team prepared an excellent sales brochure, including pictures that were of amazing quality
5. Timeliness – the transaction closed in 2 months
In summary, as the Escrow Officer told me, I had the best agent and Team in the area. I concur!
— Greg H., Trustee
We’ve worked with Janet Loveland, Sue Carr and Anne Loveland at Loveland Carr Properties to purchase two homes and sell two homes over the past 10 years. We couldn’t be happier with their approach – professional, insightful, steadfast, honest and hardworking. They are the ultimate broker package! These ladies get to know you and truly care that you’re getting what you want, all while protecting your best interests. We had been contemplating a move for some time, getting market feedback from Anne on a regular basis. Most recently, when she found the perfect home for us, Anne Loveland was expert at helping us negotiate through multiple offers and “worked her magic” to ensure we got the house we loved on favorable terms. She handled all of the inspections we needed and remaining doggedly committed for weeks post close to ensure that the work done on our new home was performed to the highest standards – even when we were out of the country for two weeks! Her level of dedication is absolutely amazing and we can’t say enough about how much we appreciated her efforts. Anne Loveland and Sue Carr were a great team – masterminding the timing of the sale of our old home and purchase of our new one with perfect precision. We simply can’t say enough about Loveland Carr Properties and would highly recommend this fabulous team to anyone!

Anne Loveland did a wonderful job in navigating a tricky sale, and saving what we thought was a lost deal. She had amazing patience, vigor and consistency in getting us a closing above asking price. Would not hesitate to use Loveland Carr Properties again.
— Adam Fleischman
— Tracy Fraim
As a first-time home buyer I have nothing but great things to say about Anne Loveland. We met at the open house – Anne was the listing agent and wound up acting as dual agent for us and the seller – and throughout the whole process treated us fairly and looked out for our interest. We wound up getting a deal done for a house that we love, and through the whole time answered all of our questions (there were tons – first-time buyers) very quickly with accuracy and respect. I never felt dumb for having brought something up and we never had to wait very long to get a response – sometimes even late on a weekend night. Buying a house involves a lot of work: paperwork, inspections, a tight timeline – Anne managed all of it and was pleasant to talk to throughout – we looked forward to seeing her and knew that we could trust what she told us. I would happily recommend Anne Loveland and her team for anyone buying a home.
— Sarah & Eddie
Sue Carr and her team at Loveland Carr Properties are wonderful professionals who are very experienced in the areas they serve. They have deep insight into the market and have seen it all. We found them via referral and they have handled one sale and one rental listing for us; in both cases they exceeded expectation and led us to successful transactions. There is no higher praise I can give a realty team.
— Tiffany & Dick
When we embarked on the journey of finding our dream home where we would raise our daughter, we knew it would be critical to work with the right real estate professionals, but we had no idea how pivotal Anne Loveland and Sue Carr would be in making our dream a reality. It goes without saying that both Anne and Sue are conscientious, knowledgeable, resourceful and experienced when it comes to the real estate market and Hancock Park in particular. However, the key reason why we feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Anne and Sue is that they genuinely cared that our family found the “right” home. They truly listened and took the time to get to know us. They gracefully challenged us when their instincts told them that we were trying to convince ourselves that we could make a house “work” for us because they truly understand the rational and emotional facets of buying a home. They never wavered in their commitment, resolve and energy to find us our perfect house. We will forever be grateful to Anne and Sue for their partnership with us in this journey.
— Malin Wong & James Kissane
We worked with Anne Loveland when we acquired our most recent home. She was outstanding. It was a fairly complex acquisition (acquired out of foreclosure) and was highly competitive (14+ bids). Anne did an outstanding job developing a relationship with the selling agent, which was really the difference maker in getting us the house. She was on top of all the details getting the house from escrow opening to closure and made a complex deal come together seamlessly. I would highly recommend her.
— Dan Krasner
We were so lucky to have Anne Loveland and Janet Loveland help us find tenants for our Windsor Square home. We had to relocate out of state for a few years and wanted to find a family who would take good care of our home and enjoy all that Larchmont has to offer. Anne and Janet helped us to get the house ready for showing, created a beautiful website and found tenants within two days of listing. They were professional and responsive at every step–from preparing a customized lease agreement to making sure the house was ready for the tenants on moving day. They even brought us (and our moving crew) lunch when we were packing up. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
— Jody & Mike
My sister and I would like to thank Anne and Sue, along with the entire team at Loveland Carr Properties, for their exceptional efforts with selling our parent’s home of 49 years in Hancock Park. Their knowledge and expertise was very apparent in every detail from the complex paperwork, to the referrals necessary for “sprucing up” the house and to the proper staging of the house. They were a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them.
— John & Melina
Thank you so much for all your amazing help finding & purchasing this wonderful home. From our first learning tour of the neighborhood with you to the last details of the negotiation, you brought an incredible mix of professionalism, knowledge, perspective, humor and friendship to the whole endeavor. We so appreciated your attention to detail during home inspections, your thoughtful and practical housewarming gifts and your constant generosity of time and spirit in helping us think through this momentous decision. We can’t imagine having gone through this process with anyone else and we feel so fortunate to have made such a wonderful friend as well. We look forward to many more meals together and neighborhood run-ins in the future.
— Michelle, Isaac, Dahlia & #2
Loveland Carr is an amazing group of people who are exceptional at what they do – find people great homes. This is the third house that Loveland Carr has sold my family and i think we’ve now almost hit the whole bunch…First Janet, then Anne and now, Ali. Ali was awesome to work with and was always available to chat, show a property or just give some real estate knowledge! When we found the right house, she made sure everything went incredibly smooth and made the entire process easy breasy.
Simply put, they are the best!
— Eric Hoberman
This powerful group of professional real estate gurus were our first choice to represent us in the sale of our 19 year old home, having sold my parent’s old home on Hancock Park. Their great reputation precedes them and is well deserved. Each member of the team, Janet Loveland, her daughter Anne and long time partner Sue Carr, bring their own special talents to the art of selling a residence. We were wowed by their excellent representation and marketing skills in the sale of our beautiful and special home. They bent over backwards to ensure that everything was presented professionally and that the escrow proceeded successfully. Look no further than Loveland Carr and team for a successful result!
— The Fitzpatricks
From the first day we met the team of Loveland Carr, we felt comfortable and relieved to have such a highly qualified and professional team of real estate agents to help us sell the home I had been in for 10+ years, spanning my college years, marriage, and bringing our firstborn home to. Their knowledge and expertise was visible in every detail from staging the home, to explaining the paperwork involved, and the referrals necessary for updating an old craftsman home. Moreover, Ali was sensitive to our needs and wants when selling- this is the home I had started my adult life in and the memories were as much a factor as anything else. Ali Jack made sure that the house looked better than it had when we first bought it. I believe that it is through her tenacity and dedication (answering my frantic texts at all hourse) to our home it was listed as a “hot home” by Redfin within days of listing, and was in escrow a week after listing, and finally- sold for almost $200K over asking. Ali and the entire team at Loveland Carr made this experience in a word – amazing!
— The Cormier Family
From the search to the ultimate find, Sue led the way to our dream house from start to finish. Even with my husband working from the East Coast throughout much of the process, Sue was able to keep us up to date and thoroughly informed on all pertinent information and took care of everything. We felt safe and protected with Sue. Her long-time experience, relationships in the real estate community and vast knowledge about every street and property in the neighborhood made buying our home smooth, seamless and worry-free. Once our home was purchased, she stayed on to make sure we were settled and to help us get situated with incredible resources at her fingertips and I know she is always a phone call away. We couldn’t be happier with Sue and the team at Loveland Carr!!
— The Hall Family
From the first day we met the team of Loveland Carr, we felt comfortable and relieved to have such a highly qualified and professional team of real estate agents to help us sell my mother’s home (which I knew since I was 17 years old). Their knowledge and expertise was immediately visible in every detail from staging the home, to explaining the paperwork involved, and even having great referrals for all that we needed to get the house ready. Mostly importantly, this was an emotional sale due to the passing of my mother, who myself and my family lived with for the past 20 years in her home. This had been our home. However, the sensitivity that these women had for the process that I was experiencing gave me the strength I needed during this time. And they found a beautiful family whom my mother would have been very happy to have move into her home. I am forever grateful to this team! Our home sold in a week an a half. Amazing!
— The Delgado Family
I cannot recommend Loveland Carr highly enough. They provided us with invaluable help when purchasing a home in Hancock Park. Anne Loveland was just a joy to work with. With her intimate knowledge of the area and detailed expertise, she was able to guide us smoothly through every stage of the process from initial offer through inspection through final settlement. She was attentive, considerate, responsive, adaptable, and meticulous in finding a simple solution to every problem (big or small) that cropped up along the way.
— Deborah & James
Loveland Carr Properties recently represented us in the sale of our home in Hancock Park. These ladies are consummate professionals. They are experts with sharp instincts about the market and what it will bear. Their marketing strategies are innovative and they bring a special and personal touch to everything they do. They are organized and thorough, making the process as painless as possible. Ultimately they were able to sell our home for an absolute premium in Hancock Park, with multiple offers. They are truly a pleasure to work with and we wouldn’t consider any one else in the area.
— Hillary Super & Michele Sizemore
Anne Loveland was an amazing help and support during our long process of finding and buying our family home. She is patient, conscientious, thoughtful, and experienced; and truly left no stone unturned on our behalf during this process. She was (and still is) totally available and responsive to us, and is always able to give or find a well-researched and thoughtful answer to any question or need.
We could not have asked for anything more from Anne and the team at Loveland Carr. They know the Hancock Park market inside and out; they are professional and honest; and they are a pleasure to work with. They helped us to find, negotiate, and close on the perfect house and as a result we do not plan to leave it. But if we did need to buy or sell a house again, we would be so happy to have Anne Loveland by our side.
— Blair Lawson
Anne Loveland is a true professional. We sold our home in Brookside from London and despite the miles, Anne made it very easy and handled everything we needed. She chose almost all vendors, picked out carpets, lighting and paint colors, supervised all labor of handymen and painters, organized the gardening needed and actually even did some planting herself. We would absolutely work with Anne again – in fact, we wouldn’t work with anyone else. Thanks Loveland Carr.
— Alaine & Matthew Grossman
“It’s quite a task selling ones house, what with the prepping and listing and waiting and negotiating and packing and more waiting and finally – you’re done. It sold! The goal of course being that your home sells for what you think it’s worth – or even a little more if you’re lucky. Loveland Carr turned my experience into one that I will happily share any chance I get. Anne Loveland is the kind of real estate pro you dream about. Incredibly sharp with an extraordinary grasp of the LA real estate market. A gracious, sweet, charming, and beautiful young woman doing exactly what it takes to rise above the rest in Los Angeles. Anne strategized a brilliant plan for selling my home and her efforts resulted in no less than six offers within days after our first open house. Which is when her savvy negotiating skills entered the picture, navigating a competitive field of hungry buyers to secure a final selling price well beyond what my home was listed for. She’s not just great, she’s exceptional. And the same goes for everyone at Loveland Carr Properties. Sue Carr and Janet Loveland hosted the most spectacular brokers open, which ultimately proved to be the icing on the cake. Other brokers love this company, and why wouldn’t they? I don’t know what else to say except you should run to Loveland Carr if you are looking to buy or sell a house. I guarantee you will thank me.”
— Ken Martin
“Anne Loveland helped us buy our home, and she was a delight to work with throughout the entire search, offer, escrow, and closing process. She was professional at all times, available and responsive. She walked us through preparing an offer and patiently explained it page by page (line by line even) to make sure we understood everything properly and had all of our questions answered.
She went above and beyond to make sure the inspections and financial process went as smoothly as possible, communicating promptly and professionally with all the parties involved to get things done and get answers to our questions. She kept us informed throughout the entire escrow process, so we always felt comfortable she was handling the transaction and making sure things moved forward as we prepared to close.
We love our new home, and we look forward to working with Anne again if and when we decide to move!”
— Charlotte T
Lynda and I just want to restate what has been obvious to us since we first met you at the end of last year: you are fantastic at what you do, and we are grateful for all your work, help and guidance towards buying this house. We began our search with you laying down an extremely difficult problem to solve (as we quickly learned in touring this bonkers market). The problem compounded when I left and started working on my own. Throughout our home search, you remained accessible, flexible, patient, consistent, reassuring and friendly. Your level of thinking, your service and your communication have all been outstanding. We know it’s you just doing your job, but we also know that great service comes from great thoughtfulness, which we in particular understand, value and appreciate. You made us feel like we were as important to you as your richest clients buying a $10M mansion in Hancock Park.
We left the Bay Area on a high after an awesome experience selling our loft with our agent there, and now once again have nothing but positive feelings having bought here in LA with you, Ali and your awesome team. GO REALTORS!
I think this goes without saying, but we will recommend and market your firm hard in the coming months and years with our friends, family and colleagues. What a wonderful experience we just had with Loveland Carr / Coldwell.
We really look forward to nurturing this great relationship with you guys, both professionally and socially.
— The Benoit Family
Anne Loveland and the Loveland Carr team first represented me in 2007 when I bought a condo in West Hollywood. I currently live in Chicago and had not seen the unit since 2013. So when I recently decided to sell, I had some apprehension. The Loveland Carr team assured me that they could handle to process from start to finish, and relieve any stress on me. They handled everything… including transitioning the property after my tenants left, making recommendations on what to fix, what to upgrade, and which vendors to use. As an example of their professionalism, Anne interviewed several staging companies before selecting the most appropriate. The unit looked amazing, a huge difference from when my tenants left.
After replacing the carpet, painting, and fixing an appliance, Anne had a professional take wonderful pictures and immediately started to market the property. Within 10 days of being on the market, we received multiple offers – and this was after we chose to aggressively price the unit. Loveland Carr helped me to select the strongest buyer and manage the process to get the best possible price and terms. They then oversaw inspections, escrow, and helped me throughout the closing process.
Loveland Carr Properties did a wonderful job of tempering my expectations of the sales process, which they informed me could take 4 months. Due to their tireless work ethic, excellent organization, and vast contacts with various trades, the sale from my tenants leaving to close took just 6 weeks. Throughout the process their communication was excellent, which kept me reassured that we were on track. I highly recommend Loveland Carr Properties and could not have had a better experience selling my condo.
— Barrett Foster
Just a note to thank you for your efficient and professional help in selling my cousin’s house. With Loveland Carr’s help the sale process was quick and required very little of my time.
Some of the highlights relating to the sale and your help as follow:
1.You gave me three options relating to the house – sell, rent or repair/remodel the house.
2.You recapped current sales in the area and helped me decide what the fair market value of the house is based upon its “AS IS” condition. You assisted me in listing the house at $929,000.00 and sold for $880,000.00 (after adjusting for the damaged foundation and structure found during inspection).
3.Your negotiations throughout the listing period were professional and were always fair. I especially appreciated the fact that you kept me apprised to all the activity, offer and related matter on a weekly sometimes, even daily basis.
Please add my name to your long list of satisfied customers.
— Gene S. Crvarich
My wife and I recently purchased a home in Hancock Park with Loveland Carr as our brokers. It was an amazing and effortless experience. Their knowledge of the area, the homes themselves, as well as the fair market value made our purchase smooth and left us with no sleepless nights. I’d highly recommend Sue, Janet, and Anne. They’re a great team and helped make our dreams come true.
— The Rosenbaum Family
My husband & I would like to thank Sue Carr & Loveland Carr Properties for an exceptional job in helping us to sell our home of 32 years in Hancock Park/Windsor Square. Sue, Janet & Anne were top professionals in guiding us through the emotional & exhausting task of selling a long time home. They were always willing to help with suggestions & contacts to help make our property more attractive to buyers. Also they were helpful with staging ideas & made sure that the resulting sale, inspection & escrow went smoothly. Sue, the Loveland Carr team, including office staff, were “top notch” and we highly recommend them.
— The Everson Family
Anne Loveland helped us buy our first home in Los Angeles. Thanks to her, we were able to navigate the competitive local market with ease. She gave us excellent advice at every stage of the process — from open house to closing — and she was responsive whenever we needed help. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
— The DeMartino Family
Loveland Carr represented us in selling our home in Hancock Park in the second quarter of 2014. They worked together as a team to help us get the exposure we needed,which resulted in a number of offers. They are fully knowledgeable about the process (which is getting more complex every year) and were very helpful in walking us through all aspects of the process. They are true professionals.
— The Badal Family
I can highly recommend Anne Loveland if you are thinking of buying or selling your house. She represented me and my husband when we sold ours and it was the most stress free, trouble free experience we have had.
We would have used her to help us buy too but were moving out of Los Angeles. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her from start to finish.
— The Patrick Family
“I just wanted to send you and your partners a note to thank you for the fantastic job all of you did in representing us in the sale of our parents’ home.
When we were confronted with the task of selling the house we really didn’t know who to select as our Realtor as we don’t live in the area. We interviewed several top agents. Thank goodness we followed our instinct and chose Loveland Carr.
From our initial meeting your team were the most professional and organized agents that we have ever dealt with. Your strategy for pricing and marketing the home was perfect. Because of your expertise the house sold quicker and with more offers than we ever expected and well beyond the asking price. The escrow phase went equally smoothly.
You kept us completely informed and were so easy to reach when we had questions. If we ever have any other real estate needs in the Hancock Park area we know where to go. If any of your clients ever want a reference don’t hesitate to let me know. Thanks again for everything.”
— Tony Brazil

She kept us informed throughout the entire escrow process, so we always felt comfortable she was handling the transaction and making sure things moved forward as we prepared to close.
We are thrilled with our new home, and we look forward to working with Anne again if and when we decide to sell our home and move again!”

“Earlier this year, Sue Carr handled the sale of our house at 500 South Arden Boulevard in Hancock Park. We cannot praise her enough for her guidance and for all the support she provided. She was a friend, a confident, a brilliant strategist, a master stager, and a vocal advocate. It is not by accident that Ms. Carr has such a stellar reputation in the neighborhood; she demonstrated daily that the reasons for her success come from a mastery of the details of the process, an intuitive instinct about people, and her understanding that a real estate sale is above all things a highly personal transaction.
Our particular sale was complicated due to a flood three weeks into the listing, which required taking the house off the market for over two months. At every stage of the process, no matter how challenging, Ms. Carr remained solution based. She is like a master chess player, always anticipating and devising new strategist. Throughout the process, we continued to remain confident that were being guided by a highly skilled broker with a very resourceful team.
Her humor, compassion, charm and her great sense of style and class were matched by an extraordinary thorough knowledge of the mechanics of the sale and a superb handling of all the details. We are extremely grateful to Sue, her partners Janet and Anne Loveland, and their assistant Renee for all the support they gave our family during the sale of our home.”
— Sandy Smolan & Pamela Reed
“First, we want to express our sincere thanks to Coldwell Banker and most of all Sue Carr and Anne Loveland (and Janet) for taking such good care of us during the first half of this year when we were first deciding whether to list, and then listing, picking a buyer and closing the sale of our beloved home on North June Street.”
“Contrary to the defamatory and baseless remarks of the agent representing the buyer who purchased our home, Sue Carr was a pillar of professionalism and courtesy throughout our transaction. She advised as well, reassured us all along the way that everything would work out, maximized our profit on the deal (such that we realized far more than we originally expected) and she helped us present out home and maintain the improved presentation of our home from beginning to finish of the listing work.”
“Sue may be young, but she has established herself as a legend (and deservedly so) in the Los Angeles real estate market and we were not only grateful to have her on our side but proud of it as well. Her integrity, honesty, and forthrightness sets herself apart from many other brokers we have worked with over the years.”
“Needless to say, we have no reservation about recommending Sue Carr and Anne Loveland to any potential client. Both women worked well together and provided a seamless and painless transaction that we will always remember for how well it went.”
— Barry Hoffman & Chris Larson
“Anne and Janet, I wanted to thank you both so much for the great job you did selling my father’s house at 245 S. Plymouth. Between the combination of you two, your team mate Sue Carr and your assistant, Deidre, my siblings and I always had access to ready answers. We benefited a lot from your team’s wide range of skill sets and perspectives. You were always ready to do whatever it took to get a problem solved. You dealt well with our specific family situation (having to work with four trustees – a surviving spouse, thee offspring and four tenants). You came up with a plan that suited our family in light of the challenging marketplace, including preparation of the property for sale, marketing to the public, pricing so as to attract multiple offers, managing through escrow and numerous inspections through to the closing. You exhibited professionalism in all aspects of communication and thorough follow-through with all parties to the transaction. It was a pleasure to work with you.”
— John Harriman, Jr.
“Dear Janet, now that we have completed our trek through the land of house selling, I want to thank you and your associates for making it a successful and enjoyable journey. The June Street house served as our “family headquarters” for sixty years and four generations. This, and the fact of my mother’s long illness and recent passing in that home made for an emotionally challenging circumstance. The currently soft home-selling market presented other obstacles as well.”
“The decision for Nessa and I to sell the house this year was strongly influenced by believing you and your team could provide us with honest and knowledgeable guidance. You didn’t disappoint! From your sense of design in arranging the furnishings and Anne’s beautiful marketing photographs, to Sue’s presentations to prospective buyers, to Deidre’s following-up on details, it was a well-coordinated symphony. To steal a quote from Coach Tom Landry, ‘Ya’ll should be proud.’”

“On each individual’s life journey, moments arise when it becomes appropriate to ask for aid from a wise person in order to overcome the obstacles in the path and continue to move forward to the place where the fit it, and figure out their purpose on this planet. On this milestone day, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks primarily to you (and secondarily to Janet, Sue and Rachel for their critical support) in using the wide assortment of skills, ability, experience, and magical tools that you possess to successfully manage and close the sale of our property in such a miserable market environment. The 2200 miles that separate us may make it impossible to communicate adequately my deep gratitude and appreciation for the job well done despite the challenges you confronted, but please know that your performance over the past 5 months reaffirmed my initial, unwavering belief that your team was absolutely the right choice to help us accomplish our goal. I will always be glad that our paths crossed briefly and that you possessed enough compassion, courage, and inner strength to accept the listing and help achieve a positive outcome against the odds!”
“Thank you Anne for being the wise woman I so needed at this moment.”
— Former Windsor Square Resident
“If you are looking to sell your house in the Hancock Park area, look no further than Anne Loveland. We sold our house in Larchmont Village from 3000 miles away which meant Anne and her team helped us with everything. And I mean everything. From sprucing up the property to inspections the Loveland Carr team made the process as painless as possible. She’s a straight shooter who will sell your home and probably become a friend along the way. We couldn’t have done it without her and more importantly wouldn’t have wanted to either.”
— Jenn Rogers & Robert Carlock
“I have had the privilege of knowing and being represented by Sue Carr as a realtor for the last 15 years. She represented my wife and me on the sale of our last three homes. Aside from her personal presentation, that is always professional and meticulous, her love for the work she is doing has been obvious by her acute understanding of the marketplace. Knowing where to price any property is crucial to the sale, especially in the changing marketplace we are confronted with today. Sue’s understanding of pricing has proven to be “on the money” and should be trusted. Her honesty, thorough explanations and understanding of contractual issues have always been clear and helpful. Her attention to detail in staging and marketing my Windsor Square estate was crucial to its sale. Sue has always been sensitive to scheduling showings and punctual without fail.”
“It has been my pleasure to have her as my realtor and over these many years come to call her my friend.”
— Lee Evan Flicker
“Dear Ms. Carr, I usually do not write a letter like this, but because of the extraordinary job you performed in selling my home I felt compelled to do so. I was impressed with the amount of marketing you executed, the number of open houses for brokers and potential buyers and the thoroughly professional manner in which you and your staff conducted themselves.”
“You always had the correct answer (and patience with the questions) whenever I would ask. The experience, professionalism and high ethic stance you exhibited during the term of the sale were totally above and beyond the call of duty.”
“Thank you so much for making my sale pleasant and totally painless. If in the future I decide to buy or sell again you will absolutely be my broker of choice.”
— Paul Thompson
“I highly recommend the team of Janet Loveland and Sue Carr. They worked with us very closely on the sale of our home @ 613 S. Hudson Avenue in Hancock Park last year. When they say they “treat you like family – it’s not just a part of their logo. They really do! We started the process of readying our home for sale in March, 2006. There was much to do to command the sales price we wanted. Janet went shopping with me for new curtains and rods and new appliances for the kitchen. Both Janet and Sue were on hand to iron the curtains and make sure they were hung to their discerning eyes. Anne ran out to Restoration Hardware when one of our rods turned out to be the wrong one for our window. They even loaned us a beautiful chair, antique mirror, hand towels, and plants to round out our new decor. Our house never looked so beautiful! They also cooked and served a delicious buffet for Broker’s Open – making our home even homier.”
“Janet and Sue were always available for consultation, expert opinion, and moral support throughout our sale. They worked harder than any brokers I’ve ever worked with and, best of all, we sold our house for the price we wanted. I can’t think of a team I’d rather work with than Janet, Sue, Anne, and Courtney along with their excellent assistant, Eileen. I would work with them again and recommend them to anyone considering selling or buying.”
— Sandra Fenster
“I am writing to whole heartedly recommend the Loveland*Carr Team of realtors. Janet and Sue sold my first house in 2001 (with seven offers!) and helped me beat out several other offers to buy another house at that time. Four years later, they were the team I would count on to sell my second house and deal with a complicated inspection period while I was in the middle of a divorce. And last year, in a declining market, they sold my last house, with Anne as lead agent.”
“My loyalty in returning to them again and again speaks more than anything else I could say, but I would be remiss if I didn’t point out their professionalism, integrity, attentiveness, vast personal and professional contacts, and overall pleasantness. They are the kind of agents that can get deals done because other agents and various professional entities like them and want to work with them.”
“In short, I would be happy to recommend the Loveland*Carr Team to anyone buying or selling a house.”
— Naomi Selick
“I had to write the letter to express how my wife and I feel about the Loveland*Carr team. We closed escrow November 1, 2006 on our home at 428 So. Las Palmas. A few weeks earlier I mentioned to Anne Loveland that we wanted some living room sofas and chairs recovered before we moved and, ‘Did she know of anyone?’”
“The next day Anne and Janet arrived at our home in Westlake (1 hour from the Coldwell Banker office). Anne took pictures of each room for furniture placement in our new home. Janet walked the house checking color of rugs, etc. The next day she arranged for our furniture to be picked up and had samples for us to pick the fabric and color we wanted to match our oriental rugs. We discussed replacing the upstairs carpet and Janet and Mary Kay selected the color and fabrics. Then Janet arranged for the carpet to be laid before we moved in on Sunday.”
“We moved November 6th and 7th and on moving day all four Realtors of Loveland*Carr helped place and arrange the furniture in bedrooms, hung pictures, and worked all day. Anne Loveland, Janet Loveland, Sue Carr, Courtney Macker and Eileen Watt all helped. Anne Loveland handed me a typed list of phone numbers of utilities, DWP, the gas company, newspapers, etc. Plus she had all the names and numbers for the gardener, pool man and gate man.”
“Whenever we needed a person for anything Anne had the name and telephone number. The hall stairway and railing had been painted white and needless to say, it looked awful. Janet arranged for a decorative painter to finish the banister in an antique iron finish and the stairway in a magnesite finish. They are both the highlight now of the entrance hall.”
“I could go on about the warm relationship the Loveland’s and the Carr’s displayed, they are unequaled in the Realtor business of today. I want to especially thank Anne Loveland for all her personal help and logical thinking on all our everyday questions.”
— Kenyon & Mary Kay Lee
“I am writing this letter to express what a wonderful job the Loveland*Carr team did in selling my property in Hancock Park. It is not often you find such a pleasant and hardworking team, a group who worked flawlessly together, especially when faced with the extraordinary circumstances they encountered with this sale.”
“It is rather difficult to describe the magnitude of complexity surrounding the sale of my property. The property was a Trust sale, with two trustees from two different families. The duplex was located in a rent-controlled area, and had tenants in both units, including a 93 year old woman who had rented her unit for over twenty years. Showings of the property were limited to only TWO hours per week, and the tenants had to be called and reminded ahead of time. Each week when I touched bases with Sue and/or Courtney they were delightful and friendly, not to mention their undying patience as they and their team continued to work around these situations.”
“It never seemed to mater what circumstances arose, there was always a member of the team available to answer questions, solve problems, and help in any way needed. I was absolutely impressed with the entire team and would highly recommend them to anybody looking to sell their property in the Hancock Park area.”
— Molly B. Williams
“While it took me about 5 years to convince my husband to look for a new home in Hancock Park, it took about 5 seconds to decide on the realtors to represent us- Sue and Janet. They represented the sellers when we purchased our first house, and although we lived there for seven years, we always knew we would look to Sue and Janet when we were ready to sell. Sue and Janet took charge immediately- buying a new home and selling our old home was effortless. They were responsive, attentive to detail, and helped us negotiate the right price on both the purchase and the sale.”
— Wendi L. Doyle
“Sue and Janet recently represented us in the sale of our home in Hancock Park. Their attention to detail in preparing the house for sale, creating elegant and professional marketing materials, pricing the house appropriately, and managing the administrative details of the sale process once we entered escrow, were impeccable.”
“However, we would expect nothing less than that, having known both Sue and Janet for over fifteen years, and having worked with Sue on the purchase of our first home in Los Angeles in the late 1980s and on three other personal residence transactions since then. Sue and Janet’s integrity, professionalism and effectiveness are unrivaled which combined with the fact that they are charming, humorous and fun to work with make them second to none in our minds. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
— Nancy & Bob Wagman
“Luck was on our side 14 years ago when we met Sue Carr at one of her Hancock Park open houses. So charming and impeccably dressed, Sue’s knowledge of Hancock Park was apparent after speaking with her for just a few minutes. We liked her immediately and knew we could trust her to help us find our dream home-not an easy task since we are perfectionists and extremely picky people! Sue worked with us for two years. Two YEARS! She never showed us a house that did not somehow resonate with our desires and needs. And when we found THE house that would become our HOME, Sue was there for us during the entire process, answering all our questions, sometimes before we could ask them, advising us and introducing us to people like herself, who were sincere and knowledgeable in their field. From insurance brokers to general contractors, Sue’s recommendations were top notch. It was obvious that Sue only worked with the best. So when she partnered with Janet Loveland, a true icon in Hancock Park real estate, it seemed only natural. The best with the best!”
“Aside from their real estate prowess and business expertise, the great thing about Sue and Janet is that they both live in the neighborhood. It is a real comfort to know there is someone near by that you can trust and has the knowledge to advise you on the care and feeding of the most important investment of your life!”
“The California real estate market is like none other and it is imperative to have people you can trust to advise you on how to list and market your property. When we decided to move out of state after 12 years in Hancock Park, it was a no brainer to call on Sue and Janet. Within a week of listing we had 5 offers and ended up selling for over asking price. Sue and Janet’s marketing plan and selling strategy produced such outstanding results that we were able to step up a level when we purchased our new home. We will be forever grateful for their advice and friendship.”
