Ali Jack at Loveland Carr was a dream to work with on the purchase of our first home. Not only was she incredibly savvy and knowledgeable, but so responsive to all of our needs. She dealt with eccentric sellers expertly. We are so grateful for all of her assistance. I can’t recommend her enough!
— Janna & Sean
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
We could not agree more with the fantastic recommendations for Ali Jack and Loveland Carr Properties. (Does Zillow allow 6 Stars?!) Ali goes above and beyond to take care of her clients and ensure their interests are met. She has relentless energy, patience and determination; she is an expert in her field and has intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods she serves. She takes the time to know her clients and truly connects. She is empathetic and puts her clients needs first. Ali totally gets it. Buying or selling a home can be a stressful and daunting task, but you will be in great hands with Ali Jack and may even have a little fun along the way! 6 Stars for Ali Jack!!
— John & Elizabeth
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
We are so incredibly grateful to Ali Jack at Loveland Carr for helping us get into our dream home. The level of attentiveness and care was truly shocking. Prior to meeting Ali, we spent two years of our lives looking at places on our own or with other realtors and we were beginning to lose hope that we’d ever be able to buy a place we really loved. A friend recommended we sit down with Ali and literally two weeks later we had an offer accepted on the exact house we had been looking for. She understood what we wanted and she got it for us. She stayed present and invaluable through the entire process, helping with inspections, escrow, loan issues and a million other things we simply couldn’t have handled on our own. A process that would have been a series of nightmares transformed into just a handful of phone calls with our new friend, Ali Jack. Learn from our experience, and start with the best. You won’t regret it.
— Grace & Sean
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
We worked with Ali Jack who is an exceptional, personable and knowledgeable full-service agent. She helped us navigate through the housing market like a pro, always making herself available to join on house tours as well as around the clock via email and text message. She also went above and beyond behind the scenes introducing us to new neighborhoods and housing options along the way. She kept the process low-stress but extremely organized, not only did she help us find the right home, she also educated us on the offer process and aided in scheduling all contractors for the inspection period.
We could not imagine this process being more enjoyable or a closing more smooth – We highly recommend Ali and would not hesitate to work with her and the Loveland Carr team again in the future.
— The Guy’s
Loveland Carr is definitely as good as it gets. We worked with the fabulous Ali Jack to purchase our first home. Not only is Ali knowledgeable, thorough, and tenacious — but she’s also a wonderfully warm and friendly person. All of this makes her a total joy to work with. Ali was totally engaged throughout our house search, always available to answer questions and offer her thoughts on properties. She and her team have their fingers on the pulse of Hancock Park, and without that, we never would’ve found our home (which was a pocket listing.) While we were in escrow, we were blown away by Ali’s level of thoroughness and organization in coordinating and tracking all of our inspections. She was always totally on top of things, and often able to offer up advice and guidance to a couple of home-buying newbies. At the end of our process, we not only had a wonderful new house – but we had a great friend in Ali. We were so impressed by everyone at Loveland Carr, and look forward to doing lots of business with them again in the future.
— The Sumers Family
They say buying a home is one of the most stressful experiences of your life. Fortunately for us, that wasn’t the case because we had Ali Jack as our realtor. She made the long process of finding our first home seamless. Ali spend countless hours driving us from one open house to another, educating us on the market and helping to keep things on track during escrow. We would have been lost without her invaluable advice and thoughtful support!
We went into escrow while I was eight months pregnant. My husband and I were beyond overwhelmed; in addition to preparing for the arrival of our first child, we were going through escrow process for the first time. Ali was the incredible support system we needed, always available to work out any concerns or questions we had at the time. She was persistent in organizing our inspections and making sure our deadlines were always met. Her enthusiasm and diligence helped keep things moving smoothly right up to the day we were given the keys.
We would definitely recommend Ali Jack and the Loveland Carr team to anyone looking to buy a house in Los Angeles. You will not find a better team in the area!
— The Wallace’s
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
“Ali Jack is a fantastic agent to work with. Having just landed from Australia, we had no idea about the market or how to get anywhere and was recommended Loveland Carr by a trusted friend – Ali went above and beyond by driving us everywhere, giving us the low down on every neighbourhood we were interested in and previewing every property we emailed her about (I think there were about 50 all up since we couldn’t decide between living east or west) and doing a site visit of many of them before hauling us there with her. She was always happy, cheerful, professional and patient with helping us through the process, providing suggestions when called for, explaining the pros and cons of the situations/properties, even in her emails sent to us at 11pm!
It was wonderful that she had an experienced team she could lean on. As you can imagine, being Australians, we were purchasing a property without a credit score or SSN… a nightmare beyond the usual contingency and escrow hurdle that most people have. We managed to move into our new place within two months of arriving in LA!
We have found a wonderful home that we are very happy with and have recommended Ali to our friends. We found that she never pushed us to do anything that we weren’t comfortable with, was always responsive and making sure that things were as smooth as possible for us.”
— Michelle & Sam White
“There are not adequate words to describe the appreciation we have for the impeccable service of the incredible Ali Jack. Ali went above and beyond to help us find our dream home. She was there every step of the way, always super prepared, thorough, and thoughtful. She guided us seamlessly, educated us about the market, and strategized with us as we encountered a few bidding wars. She was a shoulder to lean on when our best and final offer didn’t secure us the home and kept rallying on our behalf until we finally won the bidding war for our dream home. We know that this was the home that was meant to be but it wouldn’t be without the efforts of Ali. She worked diligently through the home inspection process, referring stellar inspectors and specialists so we could learn about our house and helped us strategize our negotiation for inspection items. Her advice in this area really helped us secure the finances we needed to implement the work. She is not just thoughtful in a business sense but truly cares about her clients. My husband and I experienced a terrible personal loss which Ali learned of while she was helping us find our home and we returned to our apartment to find a couple pints of ice cream and the sweetest of notes. Every letter she wrote whether to us or to the seller’s agent pitching us as buyers was perfectly and thoughtfully written. We are settling into our new home and we miss our time with Ali. As exciting as house hunting can be, it can grow stressful and tiresome, but Ali is such a joy that it made the entire experience feel like we were just hanging out with a best friend. Additionally, Ali has the support and wealth of experience of the entire Loveland Carr Team. Anne was an available resource and her expertise was appreciated, serving as additional reassurance though we had absolute trust in Ali. We do, and will continue to, recommend Ali Jack to anyone looking to list or purchase a home. Five stars all the way!”
— The Russo’s
“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
“I’ve just begun the process of turning the house I purchased into a home. As I’m picking out drapes and debating paint colors, I often stop and remind myself how infinitely grateful I am for Ali Jack’s help in this process. I set out with a mission, and Ali helped me realize many things during my year-long quest to find a dream home. At first I thought of it like shopping for anything, or even a car—if I’m willing to offer asking, the house is mine right away, right? What I wish I could have told that version of myself! Still, with Ali there every step of the way to answer my questions, help me remember all of the factors I never thought of, and for supporting me when things went my way and when they did not, I knew I was always secure and making the best, most informed decisions possible. I’ve already recommended Ali Jack and Loveland Carr to friends and colleagues beginning their search for a forever home, and I’ll continue to do so whenever given the chance.”
— Marshall Weinbaum
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
Ali Jack is incredibly organized, prompt, savvy and composed. She talked us patiently through every step of the process and often shared tips and suggestions that made all the difference in the world. We are convinced her ability to build relationships with sellers and other agents sets her apart from other real estate professionals. I would send anyone I cared deeply about to Ali and feel confident they were in the safest hands. She’s also colleagues with the incredible Anne- my wife and I always felt the fullest confidence in the company. Highly, highly recommend. In fact, I already have to friends.
— The Ringer Family
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
If you are in the housing market, Ali Jack and Loveland Carr Properties are absolutely the best. As first time home buyers, the process can be a bit overwhelming but Ali guided us every step of the way and made the whole process an outright pleasure. They treated us like we were family, made sure we were well taken care of and even went above and beyond with getting us acquainted with our new neighborhood.
Hands down the best service and smoothest first-time home buying experience. 5 stars all the way.
— The Battistelli 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
“Anne Loveland helped us buy our first home, and she was a delight to work with throughout the entire search, escrow, and closing process. She has been 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 mortgage 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 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!”
— Happy New Owner of Penthouse in Brentwood
“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.’”
— Larry Marion
“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
