Julie, I just want to thank you so much for all your recommendations & work staging & marketing our home. It generated a lot of interest & top sales price. We are so delighted & appreciate all your work. Bob Partridge

My home was recently sold by The O'Dell Group. The entire experience was very pleasant and enjoyable.  Everyone at The O'Dell Group couldn't have been more understanding and helpful.  They all were warm and friendly and most accommodating; Dean, Jennifer, Stacey and especially Beth, and Julie who does the staging and marketing made my home beautiful. Both she and Beth have become dear friends. I highly recommend The O'Dell Group for anyone planning to sell a home. You won't be disappointed. A huge thank you to the entire group. C. Evans

The O'Dell Group is professional, yet personal in their approach to potentially marketing a property or finding the "just right" property for a buyer (we've used them multiple times for both). They are highly communicative and engaged at every level. Michelle & Jon Christy

The process went very quickly and smoothly. They operate like a well oiled machine. We highly recommend The O'Dell Group. Doug & Teresa Shermer

Peter from the O'Dell group has been great to work with. We met him at a open house. We discussed what my family was looking for in a home. He since has been very responsive and sent us several listings that he thought would be good options for us and ultimately helped us find our new home. We have been very impressed with his hustle and due to this opted to use him to sell our current home as well. I have nothing but positive things to say about Peter and his group. Would highly recommend them to anyone. Kelly Chain

We were happy with The O'Dell Group and particularly April's professionalism, her patience with new homeowners, and her informative and helpful service. Jane Smith

My husband and I worked with April O'Dell Nugent to buy a home in North Tustin, and we could not be happier with the home April helped us find and purchase. April is so knowledgeable about the area, and always gave us peace of mind and valuable insights through our offer-making and escrow processes. She is responsive, helpful, and so kind. I highly recommend her!  Jessica Brostek-Maciel

I can’t say enough about Nicole Galey and the whole team at The O’Dell Group. They helped us from start to finish with a trust sale and were responsive, friendly, professional and just a joy to work with. They were able to market our property to bring in the best prospective buyers. And after we received numerous offers, they gave us guidance on how to review the offers to achieve the best fit for our situation. The entire experience was smooth, and we never had to worry about the details because Nicole and the team had them covered. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. I would highly recommend them! Jenelyn Russo

Loved the support from the O'Dell Group. Nicole is always helpful and willing to talk through options. I had lots of questions and she was patient and she made sure I understood the process. She is all in with a can do attitude! Check out the O'Dell Group if you are looking for your next place. Heather Thayer

The O'Dell Group is extremely professional and helped us acquire our dream home! We would highly recommend them. Craig Dudek

The O’Dell Group represented us in the sale of our North Tustin home. Dean and his entire team were fantastic to work with! There were several speed bumps along the way (including the COVID pandemic), but through it all the O’Dell team was extremely responsive and professional. They were also a great resource for all kinds of services (general repairs, painter, roofer, staging house & yard, etc.) – no matter the task, they had a solution for me. I recommend The O’Dell Group to anyone selling their home and won’t hesitate to use them in the future. Vicky Hare

During this major change in how our world works, I have given a lot of thought about Mary’s and my path through this pandemic... it has been easier than many and we are truly thrilled with having moved to HB...and as we watch our economy struggle, Mary and I realized we REALLY needed to reach out to you and again tell you THANK YOU for all your’s and your staff's efforts in getting our home sold in North Tustin! Your hard work and successful efforts really have made Mary’s and my worries much we can worry more about caring for our patients!! Thank you again from the depth of our hearts!!! Stay safe... Tim & Mary Harward

If I told you exactly how good they were, you'd probably think it was too good to believe, but they did greatly exceed my expectations. For one, they sold our house lightning fast in the height of a COVID restricted market, and we sold it above the asking price. The essence of the quick success had much to do with their staging team, which is run by Julie Peterman, who is truly a master and possibly a genius. Peter Cuomo, our agent who sold our old home and helped buy our new home, had his crew pre-inspect and remove any issues that could have been a hurdle. Peter, with his incredible knowledge and experience, was also able to find and resolve a major problem in our new home that would have cost us in the order of tens of thousands down the road if not detected. His work with the other agents on all issues were excellent.  It's no wonder why he is ranked near the top amongst hundreds of agents.  I will not be able to consider another team after this experience with Peter and Julie. James Mathews

Peter and his team at The O'Dell Group did a phenomenal job from start to finish. They coached us through the entire process and provided answers to any questions we had. They recommended minor repairs, housekeeping items, and staging furniture which added tremendous value and ultimately lead us to multiple offers to sell our home. I would highly recommend Peter and his team to assist you in your home buying/selling needs and definitely heed their advice. I promise it is worth it. Cory Holmes

April and her team are consummate professionals; from start to finish all aspects of selling our home was a priority for the team.  April and the entire O'Dell Group are North Tustin area experts! Melanie Norris

This was my 4th experience either buying or selling a property and this by far was the best experience of them all. Nicole was truly amazing. She had 6 scheduled showings for our house within 3 days of it officially being listed! The first open house started at 1pm. By 1:30 we had our 1st offer 10k over asking. We ended up with 3 official offers. We accepted and were in Escrow 3 days later. Escrow went smooth as silk, zero issues. Words of advice, if you are a seller: LET THEM STAGE YOUR HOUSE! Listen to their suggestions and do them. You rock Nicole!  Dave Shenkman

Thank you to The O'Dell Group for doing such a great job in helping us to get our home sold! What a team of incredibly talented, hard-working and collaborative members. They were impressive from start to finish! We plan to spread the good word about our experience and all the great benefits of working with them. Francie & Bob Osias 

What can I say?  April and her team have COMPLETELY set a new standard for managing the residential sales process. They didn't just help stage, market and sell our home.  Not even.  April and Julie collaborated with us to create and execute a list of tasks that ranged from buying new plants to power washing the courtyard tile to fixing and repairing every single outstanding item.  April's team went way above and beyond by scheduling various home repairs with plumbers, roofers and more!  I was blown away by their level of efficiency, clear and timely communication, and overall operational excellence.  I was equally impressed by the marketing deliverables for our home.  The photography was spectacular and our real estate walk-through video literally went viral amassing 9.4k views in just over 3 weeks!  April and her team got us from the first open house to close of escrow in 25 days, despite the CoronaVirus shutdown and ensuing market uncertainty.  The market completely changes during our sales process, so thank God we had chosen April and her team.  This more than proved to me that their experience and knowledge to see our home sale through to a successful close!  After this experience, I would never choose anyone but The O'Dell Group ever again.  Eileen Hiromura 

April has been with us every step of the way in buying our new home and selling our current home. She is extremely honest and easy to communicate with. She takes her time to explain everything through the process. We have always known she has our best interests in mind throughout the process and knew we were in good hands. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! Brenna & Ken Chalmers


North Tustin professionals and it's finest! We had an amazing experience with the entire O'Dell Group.  Mike & Lori Feeney

 April is amazing! She made the daunting task of prepping and listing our home seem effortless. She priced our home perfectly to attract several potential buyers. Through the whole process her communication was stellar. April always made sure we knew what was going on, who was seeing the house and made herself available to answer any questions. I can’t say enough fabulous things about April and The O’Dell Group." Molly & Spencer Hurtt

"We just sold our home at 10971 Hunting Horn Drive to move my mother back East, and it is with great sadness that after 30 years we are saying goodbye to our neighbors and this beautiful area. For those looking to sell a high-end property, I want to strongly recommend the O'Dell Group at Seven Gables. My father died in 2016 leaving me to help my mother sell the property. I had to do all of this remotely because I now live and work in PA. For two years, every time I visited CA, I would attend open houses in order to "feel out" realtors (and better understand market values in the area). In 2018 my mother was finally ready to let go of the house. I chose to interview two realtors and chose Dean O'Dell to represent us because (1) he seemed to know the area unbelievably well; (2) he was matter-of-fact and did not inappropriately flatter the home; (3) his group had experience with and personnel for updating homes and I felt like the work I wanted to do would overwhelm a group with lesser resources. Anyone who knows me will understand that I have an almost unhealthy focus on details and am extremely difficult to please. I purposely walk the fine line between pushing people to do their very best and having them quit. And yet I cannot say enough good things about O'Dell. 

Dean helped me set the price of the property wisely, and I to say that I owe a huge debt to their marketing director Julie Peterman would be an understatement. Julie supervised extensive remodeling of our property for more than a year. She is incredibly well organized, has fantastic landscaping and remodeling contractors who work for her full time, gives terrific suggestions on how to appeal to today's buyers, and is resilient and flexible. I really should write a short book about my interactions with Julie, but I'll have to keep it to a long paragraph. Julie was skilled at understanding my standards and tastes, and good at pushing us in the right direction. I let her know that we had a very flexible budget, so we were able to entertain a huge range of ideas. As a result, she ended up bringing to me quotes for an amazing number of projects, some of which we did and some of which we passed on.

I was always impressed with how quickly Julie would turn a discussion into a quote (usually 1-3 days). She obviously does a huge amount of work with various suppliers and contractors, and that gives her a lot of clout. When I wanted to choose carpet, the carpet man drove 30 minutes to see me. When I wanted to select flooring, the distributor brought samples to our house. Nothing was quite right for me? He brought more the next day. And because she has used contractors in all trades, her preferred contractors do incredible work.

I flew out there once to check on progress, and once I saw the quality of the work being done, I realized the value of what we were getting and tripled our renovation budget. Julie looked after absolutely everything for us, from supervising the work being done, to keeping track of all payments, to sending me photos of any detail I wanted to see, and even sending us our mail. Once we had the big items done, she turned her attention to the smallest items, for example providing suggestions to replace each and every light fixture in the house. She really does incredible research which saved us so much time. And through the entire process, she was always so sunny and positive even though I am never 100% happy with anything. She is such a trooper, and not once did she lose patience with me.

How the house did on the market is a matter of record and anyone can go and judge for themselves. But even if the sale had not gone as hoped it would not diminish my enthusiasm for this real estate group. I rarely give unqualified recommendations, and I have nothing to gain here as we are leaving the state and have no personal ties to anyone affiliated with the group, but I felt a moral obligation to post something positive for work that exceeded all our expectations." Jay Kikkawa, Lemon Heights

"It was a pleasure working with April and The O'Dell Group!  As first time sellers, we were anxious and scared, but we could not have asked for a better, more qualified team to assist us with this process.  April was sensitive to our nerves and emotional connection to our home, provided a plan and held our hands every step of the way. We were impressed by their interior designer's touches to fill in any gaps in our home and the team's marketing skill and ability to get the right buyers in the door.  Each team member who cam through our home, from landscaping to closing, was pleasant and professional...selling a home probably should not have been this fun!  We highly recommend The entire O'Dell Group team.  Thank you for your patience, responsiveness and support during this process!"  Mark & Stacy Lovein

I can't sing Carmina Johansson's praises and those of The O'Dell Group enough!  They were absolutely fantastic - extremely efficient, friendly and practical, and gave great advice.  Anything we needed, Carmina and her team were there; from prepping and staging the house to dealing with renos and clearing things out of the house, to the sale.  The staging, photography and marketing were so good that my house sold the first weekend!  Carmina's patience and expertise were incredible.  It was a difficult time for my family because of my father's death, but she was with us every step of the way.  She and her team made a very emotional time much more bearable, and from the house perspective, worry-free.  It was also a long distance sale but sure everything went ok.  They'd be my realtor again if I lived in the area.  Lynn Wintercorn

We had a great buying experience with Peter Cuomo. Peter personalized our experience by listening to our wants and needs; making sure every home he showed us not only matched our request, but also went above and beyond it. He was available to show us homes on our busy schedule and patiently answered any questions we had; and being first time home buyers, we had plenty. We felt well informed and at ease during the whole process.  Peter also worked hard to get us the very best deal possible; getting us money to cover closing costs and the repairs needed. We would recommend Peter Cuomo to anyone looking to buy!  Bradi Sloan

After selling our house through Redfin and going through that experience, we made the wise decision to change strategies and partner with a full service agency on our purchase.  We made the right choice of going with April and The O'Dell Group.  If I could get a do-over on the sale of my house, I would have sold with The O'Dell Group.  A big thank you to Nicole and Jennifer, too.  They backed up April and really made her look good.  Nice job O'Dell Group!  Scott VonLuft

 Carmina was a pleasure to work with!! She had a very clear understanding of what we were seeking as our next family home.  We confidently relied on Carmina's expertise in the North Tustin/surrounding areas and she offered valuable insights that helped us through this exciting but overwhelming process.  Most importantly, Carmina found us our dream home and supported us through every step, as well as above and beyond that!  We are truly grateful to Carmina and The O'Dell Group! We could not have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend working with them. David & Neha Molina


Dean and his team did a great job!  It was very little work for us to get the property sold.  They took care of everything, from flowers in the front yeard to getting things fixed around the house. The O'Dell Team did everything they promised in the time frame they promised. Who could ask for more? Earl Weltmer


 We bought our home from Sarah O'Dell 30 years ago and I found it fitting to sell it with her and Dean.  Their entire team made my selling experience easy.  My home sold first day on the market for asking price. It doesn't get better that!  Thank you O'Dell Group!  You're the best!  Susan Weiss


 April helped us to purchase a great home for our growing family.  She was very patient in working with us over a period of several months, always informing us when a property became available that might be a good fit for us.  When we finally found that home, April was great during escrow.  She was very responsive to all our questions and really streamlined the process by recommending a lender, inspector, and other vendors.  Everything went smoothly. Thank you April!  Jen & Mike Lin


I would like to thank Sarah and Dean O'Dell and their team for doing such a great job with the sale of me parents home.  Sarah and Dean both worked with us to come up with an agreeable price and strategy to get the house sold. We really appreciated their understanding and expertise.  Each person in their group knew their job and performed it to a tee.  Other than Sarah and Dean, most of my contact was with Julie Peterman and Jennifer O'Donoghue.  They were both excellent!  Julie is amazing with marketing. She had great suggestions on a few updates and (partical staging) to get the home ready for the market to gain the most interest.  She was the point of contact wth all work that was being done or photo shoots and kept us informed.  Then our home was featured in some of the top Real Estate marketing ads. Jennifer handled the administrative side of things, and there was a lot of it.  It seemed like there was a lot of back and forth negotiations with this sale, and Jennifer was on top of it.  She handled all the paperwork seamlessly.  Great team!! Thank you so much!  Julie Wells 

 We first met April at an open house and knew right away she was the agent for us.  Her warmth and professionalism were very apparent right from the start.  We had recently relocated from the east coast and were unfamiliar with the market and brokers in the area, but April put all of our fears to rest.  She guided us through the whole process with patience and a great knowledge of local market.  Everyone at The O'Dell Group was a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful from beginning to end.  The whole team made us feel like family! 

Bill & Maureen Corrigan


 We absolutely loved working with The O'Dell Group!  Dean took such good care of us and we loved the whole tearm.  Julie made it seamless getting our house ready, and Jennifer, Tracy and Beth in the office kept us up to date throughout the entire process!  Our house sold quickly and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Thank you O'Dell Group!  Karen & Chuck Mehlberger

April and the entire team at The O'Dell Group were great to work with.  They were very professional and tracked every detail of our purchase and sale.  They offered references to quality companies that could help with every aspect of our move and are extrememly knowledgeable about the North Tustin market.  I would recommend the team highly.   Ken & Anne McDowell


We are SO grateful to our wonderful agent, Lesley Citarella, and The O'Dell Group for guiding us so expertly during the sale of our beloved home. From working with Julie Peterman to beautifully prepare our home for market through the entire sales process, we've felt so well taken care of and very well guided. We're amazed that such a huge transaction can be accomplished with such ease.  Greg & Patty Eckstrom

We would like to thank Carmina and the rest of The O'Dell team for helping us find and purchase our dream home.  Carmina was easy to talk to, professional and very knowledgeable about the North Tustin area.  She showed us homes in the location of the schools we wanted for our kids.  Now we have a beautiful house within walking distance to highly rated schools.  We would highly recommend Carmina and The ODell Group.  Robert Beeman


Thank you April and the entire O'Dell Group team.  They helped us sell out home and find a new one in a very tight market.  Their experience overcame all of the usual home buyeing/selling obstacles that arose. The team that supported April did a great job in everything that came up.  Randy Zelko


Carmina and her team delivered for us! Not only did our home sell for much more than asking, they guided us through the process with gentle reminders along the way and sage advice so we can make calculated decisions.  The buying process was more the same, in all the best way.  Carmina counseled us in considering the options and regularly suggested homes we hadn't considered.  We ended up with truly a dream home.  Thank you Carmina and to all The O'Dell Group team!  We could not recommedn you more.  Chris Trombley


We had spent a while browsing the market, not sure about where our next home would be. After seeing many properties in North Tustin, we knew this was the perfect location and The O'Dell Group was the best fit for our search.  Nicole and the whole team are great and are really easy to work with.  They were on point informing us about new  opportunities and were invaluable in helping close the deal when we found the perfect house.  Omair Khan


It was a crazy ride, but we were able to buy a beautiful home in our price range and even in the neighborhood we loved the best! We definitely could not have done this without Nicole.  She really took care of us during the negotiation, closing, and even after closing. We hope that we'll be in this home for many years to come, but when it is time to move again, we'll definitely call Nicole! We recommend her and The O'Dell Group so very highly. Don Canfield

 The O'Dell Group was so easy to work with! They are proactive and our entire process was completely seamless!  Corrie Lauridsen

My father and siblings would like to express our sincere thanks to Carmina, Dean and the rest of the team at The O’Dell Group as respects to the sale of our parent’s home of over 41 years. The residence was sold within 2 weeks of being placed on the market; moreover, members of their team that we encountered handed the process seamlessly and with a high level of professionalism. Selling a long time family home can be very emotional and having a firm like The O’Dell Group shepherd us through the various steps was invaluable. Again, they have our thanks as well as our strongest recommendation.  Mike Matamoros  

We had the good fortune of meeting Peter at one of his open houses. Upon first impression, not only was he personable, he also has a thorough knowledge of both the market and the inventory in the areas in which we were interested. It was at that moment we asked Peter to aid us in finding our family a home. Knowing what we were looking for, Peter guided us in the right direction.  He was always available to show us properties on our schedule. Once a home was found, Peter guided us every step of the way, whether suggesting an outstanding lender, negotiating the cost of the home, explaining each required document, or suggesting contractors for needed repairs.  When called, he  either immediately answered or called back with minimal delay.  We look forward to calling upon Peter in the future when we chose to either sell/and or buy our future homes.  Jeff & Erin

I just closed the sale of my home using the O'Dell Group and they were amazing. From the time I discussed the listing price all the way to when I received the wire from the sale, they were on top of it. They all make you feel like family and treat you even better! There is no one better in the business.  Keith McKay

Dean O'Dell and his team did an awesome job with the sale of our house and the purchase of our new house! We had bought our first house with him 8 years ago and knew we wanted to use him again if we were to ever buy or sell. Dean and The O'Dell Group really made this all possible for us. He was so good at negotiating for us and made sure everything went smoothly according to our needs. Jennifer and her office staff were so helpful and attentive to our needs. Julie and the staging and marketing team were amazing and we were able to sell our home for over asking price in a really short amount of time. Their process is so fine tuned; they really know how to do this right! We are so thankful to them for all of their hard work to make this happen for us and for such a smooth process! We would definitely recommend them to others and would use them again if we ever needed. Thanks to The O'Dell Group!  Teresa & Ivan Orloff

April and The O'Dell Group were extremely helpful with the sell of our home. They made sure we were able to get the optimal purchase price for our home, and they staged the house beautifully! It was a seamless experience without any hiccups! - Jaimie Jurnia Warren

My husband and I had been looking for a home since 2011 in North Tustin/Tustin.  In God's perfect time, Nicole Galey and I crossed paths.  When I met her, I felt she could be the the right agent to represent and help us find our home.  Nicole was persistent, driven, a go-getter and hard worker. She made sure we got the home to suit my family's needs. We enjoyed working with her and liked her "down to earth" personality.  I highly recommend her and The 'Dell Group!   Emma M.  

Outstanding company! Everyone I dealt with were very professional and friendly which has made it so easy on me. I have nothing but high praise for The O'Dell Group. I have passed my feeling on to many of my friends that if they ever are in the market to sell or buy a house to talk to The O’Dell Group.  Bill Eeles

Peter did an outstanding job handling the sale of our condo.  From preparing it to go on the market to the closing, he always knew the answer and made the process so easy.  When it came time to find a new home, Peter went above and beyond by showing us up to 8 properties a day.  He even found our dream home and made the buying process a breeze!  We are so happy with our buying and selling experience and owe it all to Peter!  Ann Aguilar

I cannot express enough gratitude for the excellent work April O'Dell and the entire O'Dell Group did for our family in helping us buy our dream home and sell our previous home. She managed every detail and was extremely organized, making  this process as seamless as possible. The O'Dell Group's expertise in every area was invaluable; and they are full of joy! I cannot recommend April and The O'Dell Group highly enough.  They know North Tustin inside and out.  The Gillin Family 

It's been a pleasure to work with Carmina over the years. She is professional, knowledgeable and provides trusted guidance without ever pushing her point of view. She has become a great friend and partner in all our real estate endeavors. Karin & Doug Dunkin

Thank you to April and the whole O'Dell team. Their approach to pricing, marketing and negotiations was professional and most importantly very successful for the sale of our home. We appreciate the team approach with everyone in their office being an expert in their field. We would recommend The O'Dell Group for selling your home.  Laura & Alstair Simpson

After listing our house with another local agent, watching it not sell after six months, The O’Dell Group came in, prepared and staged it quickly to appeal to more buyers, and sold it within two weeks with back-up offers.  Their market knowledge, experience, connection, marketing strategies and professionalism were a welcomed change after months of frustration with my previous agent.  We chose The O’ Dell Group to represent us in the purchase of our new home too, and that process went just as smooth.  Our overall experience as both a seller and buyer were stress-free, and the personal attention we received from each team member was invaluable.  The O’ Dell Group is a top notch real estate team with integrity who deeply care about their clients.  I would highly recommend Dean and The O’Dell Group for your future real estate needs.  Jeff & Diane Cherry

We hired The O’Dell Group to sell our family home and we are so glad we did!!  They sold it in less than 2 weeks and got us a 14 day escrow with a selling price of more than we were asking for the house.  It can’t get any better than that!!  It was their wise council, knowledge of the local real estate market, and strong connections with great people to fix up and stage our house before it went on the market that made a big difference.  Once we put it on the market they held 2 open houses that, through their state-of-the-art social media program, brought us well over 100 visitors and 2 solid offers.  From the first day we opened our house to buyers to the day we closed escrow, it took us only 30 days.  The whole process was seamless!  Now we can be on our way to living our dream thanks to The O’Dell Group.  Sherry & Gary Metcalfe

Working with April and The O'Dell Group has been a wonderful experience. April is so knowledgeable about the Tustin area. She graciously showed us several properties.  We appreciated the constant communication regarding new listings, comps and what to expect during escrow. We highly recommend The O'Dell Group to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the future. Thanks for making our dreams come true! - Spencer & Molly Hurtt

It was a pleasure to work with Dean O'Dell and his group during our home selling process. Dean was helpful and informative even before we decided to list with his group. Dean met with us to discuss preparing our home for sale and providing referrals when requested. He and his group were very responsive during the entire process, and extremely knowledgeable of the area and how to best stage and market our home. Their expertise resulted in excellent exposure and a quick sale at list price, just 3 weeks after our home was put on the market. The O'Dell Group was also very helpful during the negotiation and closing/escrow process - full service from beginning to end! We highly recommend The O'Dell Group.  Norm and Teresa Gielda

We had an incredible experience working with April and her team at The O'Dell Group. Starting on the day we met to the day we closed escrow, April provided us with constant communication, expertise, patience and reassurance in the buying process. She was a joy to work with and we highly recommend her to family and friends! Jay & Kelly Eastman

We recently used The O'Dell Group for buying our new home and selling our previous home all in North Tustin. Our experience could not have been better. Sarah and Dean were helpful as we decided to make a move after many years. Their office staff was thorough and friendly. We recommend The O'Dell Group for all your real estate needs.  Debbie & Don Hughes

Dean O'Dell and Marcia Saunders are real pros, and bring with them a deep bench of other experts. They ensured our family home was well priced and well marketed.  They made the process as painless as possible, as I was working from Northern California, setting up inspectors, repairmen, cleaners, painters, stagers, and estate sellers. As our house has now sold, I will miss working with this extremely outstanding, professional group. Without any question, I highly recommend them! Thanks for all your great help with the process!  Julie McMillan

The O'Dell Group is wonderful. When selling your home, they make sure that your home has the correct appeal to the buyer. When we sold our home, Dean suggested that I have bread baking in the oven, flowers on a set table, and other amenities throughout the house to make it look welcoming. By the way, THIS WORKED IN NO TIME.  Donna Craig

I have nothing but the most amazing things to say about Dean. He is the reason that we are in our dream house. He bent over backwards for us. Another realtor that I know directed me to him because she felt that he would serve us best because we were moving the Tustin area. He is well-respected in the world of real estate, so much so that another realtor gave up our listing because they knew that he would be the best! I have nothing but good things to say about Dean and The O'Dell Group, and we love our dream home!  Mindy Turner

We have been clients of The O'Dell Group for the past 22 years. Their expertise is unmatched. You would be cheating yourself to not work with The O'Dell Group.  Greg Taylor

Dean and the entire team took amazing care of me while selling our home. They went above and beyond. No matter what my needs were, there was always someone available to assist. The entire team is like a family to me. Thanks for handling everything, even the things I didn't think of! Having the stress lifted and left to the professionals was exactly what I needed!!! Thank you O'Dell Group!  Diane Munck

Anyone who is in need of a realtor should contact The O'Dell Group. Harvey will be there to help you no matter what, along with the rest of their wonderful team. Thanks Harvey and The O'Dell Group!  Christina Eastland

We were one of Dean's first customers and definitely recommend him. Dean will find you the right home because that's what he did for us.  Scott N.

All went very well....very nice people....  Richard Miller

Dean helped me get in first position on a coveted property, by writing the “email” of all emails, to the seller. His skills of persuasion in the note, were powerful and compelling, and as a result, was able to close on the property. His transaction coordinator, Jennifer, was competent and friendly, and her vast skills made the escrow process enjoyable and swift.  I can’t say enough good things about The O’Dell Group. Sarah and Gary (Dean’s Mom and Dad) are the foundation to the company’s success, and his sister April, is an up and coming superstar. Julie Peterman’s marketing expertise is literally off the charts. Using this team is simply a “no Brainer”.  Mark Krieger

North Tustin professionals and its finest! We had an amazing experience with Lorraine Bader and Dean O’Dell and the entire O’Dell Group.  Mike & Lori Feeney

Carmina and The O’Dell Group have been great helping my girlfriend and I buy our first home together. Within a couple days of contacting her, Carmina had lined up 10 homes in nice areas that met what we were looking for. She’s not pushy and is very knowledgeable about the O.C. area. I would highly recommend the entire O’ Dell Group team. Christopher Vargas

Lesley Citarella did a wonderful job representing us on the sale of our home in the North Tustin area. She is extremely responsive, caring and patient, and provided great insight into the process which was novel for me and my husband. The entire O’Dell team is very professional and has structured their resources to make the process of buying and selling your home as smooth and stress-free as possible. I would highly recommend them for all your real estate needs.  Kortney & Andrew Morrow

I cannot speak more highly of any real estate group than The O'Dell Group. We have known them forever; very knowledgeable in the North Tustin/Cowan heights market place. They have an excellent understanding in how to match clients’ needs with the properties available. If you are going to need a Real Estate Group in this area we highly recommend The O'Dell Group.  Gerry Y.

Dean and his team are top notch. They are responsive, thoughtful, and honest and have tremendous knowledge of the North Tustin area. I would recommend Dean and The O’Dell Group without hesitation.  Trisha Yount

The O’ Dell Group worked as a team to help us to find and buy the perfect home! Since the O’Dell’s live and work in North Tustin, they are experts in the area. They know the neighborhoods, the market and could even introduce us to the best contacts for all of our home needs! They were great and patient as we looked for the ideal home in our preferred North Tustin area. Thank you!  Michael & Amber Barrett

The O’Dell Group is a great team and a pleasure to work with! They sold our home in less than a week and assisted us in getting into our “forever” home. Thanks to The O’Dell Group and Harvey Vargas, the entire process truly went as smooth and painless as possible. We would HIGHLY recommend The O’Dell Group.  Patrick and Kaysie Garcia

I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am with the real estate transaction of selling my home in North Tustin. With many emotions, it was time to sell our family home after residing there for over 30 years. The O’Dell Group helped me every step of the way. From interior and exterior renovations to prepare it for the market, their advanced online marketing strategies, to their keen negotiations, The O’Dell Group consists of a great staff that was willing to provide help beyond what I expected. After only one week on the market, my home sold for over asking price with multiple back-up offers.  Kent Friend

April and the entire O’Dell Group team made us feel well-cared for from Day 1. My husband and I approached our home search with trepidation: as first-time buyers, we found the idea of purchasing a home rather daunting, so we wanted to take our time. April never rushed us, and she listened to our preferences and concerns and offered much welcome insight on the local community to help us make informed decisions. Jennifer O’Donoghue, our transaction coordinator, was very responsive and answered all our questions and worked hard to expedite our escrow and Gary O’Dell put us at ease during the inspection process. We’re glad to have The O’Dell Group guide us through the home buying process and we highly recommend them.  Gower & Daniel Lee

Dean and Sarah O’ Dell are very professional with their clients and proved their experts in knowledge and service. We have done 6 transactions with them and have topped the market for sales price 3 times. We highly recommend The O’Dell Group.  Dixie & Ken Sneeden

We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all at The O’Dell Group for your support and guidance during our home buying/selling process. There were some challenges along the way but with your real estate experience and knowledge you were able to resolve these issues in a way that was beneficial to us as clients. We are happy with our new home. The kids love their new rooms. We look forward to having you over to see our beautiful home. On a side note, we would like to give a special thanks to Carmina for her tremendous patience and hard work.  Joseph & Kelly Molina

We have worked with The O'Dell Group on several sales now and will continue to work with them for all our local real estate needs. There is no group with the level of knowledge and insight that they have on their team. They are VERY friendly, open-minded, responsive, professional, offer fast turn-around on prepping properties for market, have great ideas, have incredible connections and just get the job done! We had three full price offers within days on our last listing with them. We are so appreciative of everything they have done for us! Don't hesitate for one minute to hire them because you will not find better!  Kim Bauer

Dean O'Dell and The O'Dell Group made the deal happen for us. They are experts in the community, excellent negotiators, and really understand the needs of buyers and sellers. The purchase was smooth and they were on top of their game which only comes from experience. Their staff is no nonsense and extremely capable. They took care of a few loose ends and maintenance items from their own pockets. Such integrity is hard to find these days."  Eric & Ellen Singer

April is a gem among realtors. She is honest and hard-working and puts her clients’ interest first. As a bonus, she is also a joy to be around. We are lucky to have found her.  Sarah & Rob Gubler

I can't tell you enough how helpful every one of you at The O'Dell Group made this very emotional transaction for me, bearable.  I will sing your worthy praise to everyone!  Not only are each of you professional, but you do it with kindness.  I am so happy I chose you to represent me on the sale of my home.  Dee Dee DiMarco

g the sale of our condominium. Their full array of services to establish value, recommend improvements, and orchestrate repairs allowed us to confidently trust their team to get the property ready for the sale. Then, as the property was listed, they assisted us in tracking and monitoring showings, negotiating offers, and overseeing the closing. All of these services eliminated the typical stress involved in real estate transactions. Throughout the process, we felt our interests were always their top priority.  Sue Card

Amy and I cannot thank you enough for your quick work on our new house on Rangeview. We would have never been able to get this house if it wasn’t for your knowledge of the area and your clientele.  Michael & Amy Allen

April has been a great resource in our home sale and subsequent home search. She is very knowledgeable about the North Tustin market and prompt in her follow up.  Bryan & Jaime Bauer



Thank you so much for walking us through the process of selling our first home. Your team is so professional and kind and we enjoyed getting to know you all. We had the unique opportunity to work with the two top teams in the North Tustin market within a year's time. Our company transferred us to a more expensive home market, so getting top dollar with the least amount of hassle was our top priority. We based our decision to work with The O'Dell Group, on the arguable fact that The O'Dell’s have sold 4 times more homes than the next leading agent. We knew we needed marketing that consisted of more than self-promoting flyers in our mailbox, so this time we chose The O'Dell Group and Seven Gables Real Estate, and have zero regrets on our decision. The strategy they used to sell our home worked perfectly and expectations were exceeded at all levels. Their team is experienced and seasoned; their process was wonderful and it’s clear to see why they are the TRUE market leaders in the area. We recommend them highly.  Eileen & Nick Smith

We just sold our home for over asking price; we are extremely pleased with The O’Dell Group. Dean and his group are the leaders in N. Tustin real estate sales. When looking to list our home of 26 years, we sought out the agent who has been most successful in terms of actual homes closed for the past several years. They are it! Besides Dean’s insightful knowledge of the local market, he and his team are also down to earth and seem to truly value relationship building. The O’Dell Group added significant value to our listing provided by the marketing, social marketing, and staging services provided by Julie, who worked with us to prepare our home and market on social media. Fantastic coverage and opening, and we received 2 offers before the 1st open house. After countering and accepting the strongest offer, Jennifer on the transaction side managed our escrow process, and informed us at every important milestone. All in all in was a very smooth process and we would recommend The O’Dell Group to anyone interested in buying or selling in N. Tustin.   Scott & Kathy Hornbeak

 The O’Dell’s are a great team to work with. While they are experts in North Tustin real estate, they were also great selling our Tustin Ranch property and demonstrated good knowledge and expertise in that area as well. Their professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness is top notch. I highly recommend the team!!”  Julie Turner

Dean and his team are very professional and know their market well. Anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in his market should work with him. We sold our home and got the price we wanted and more importantly the price we expected to sell it at.  Jim & Kim Weaver

There is a reason why Dean outsells every other agent in North Tustin. His industry expertise and local experience are unmatched. We had some tricky issues when selling our home, but he navigated us through flawlessly.  He has obviously done this for many others, since his business has grown almost exclusively by repeat business and enthusiastic referrals from clients like me. I can't say enough about how positive my experience was with Dean and The O'Dell Group.  Greg & Jennifer Taylor

April was great to work with. Her extensive knowledge of the area, the community profile and nearby home values was a huge help. As first time buyers, The O'Dell Group was great and helped us stay organized throughout the process. Thanks so much for helping us find a home we love.  Josh Weiss & Allison Goldstein

I just want to take a moment and thank Carmina for a great business experience.  She has been wonderful in all aspects of business professionalism; helping and smoothing out what were rather tough moments with the other agents in both selling and buying for us.  I also want to thank the whole O'Dell Group team for their involvement and support given to us.  I really appreciate all your efforts and will continue to get your name out there.  Diana Moore

The O’Dell Group lead by Dean and Sarah O’Dell was Fantastic! Their service and professionalism was second to none. The virtual tour production of our home was of the highest quality. The appointments to show are home were scheduled with what worked best for us. They were always available to address any open questions or issues that needed to be resolved. Their follow up and attention to detail was second to none. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the North Tustin Hills would be best served by contacting The O’Dell Group.  Mel & Nikki Babtkis

I cannot say enough good things about The O’Dell Group. We are so grateful to have the expertise of your professionalism. I would heartily recommend The O'Dell Group and no one else!  Glenna Weatherman

The O'Dell Group is a wonderful team of professionals. Throughout the process of helping us sell our home and find another, we found The O'Dell Group to be supportive, encouraging, professional and absolutely wonderful! We highly recommend The O'Dell Group to anyone considering a team to help you buy or sell a home. Thank you!  Pam & Mark C.

Dean O'Dell and the O'Dell Group at Seven Gables presented and sold our home in North Tustin in 3 weeks. Their presentation of our home was fabulous. Our relatives and friends were amazed with the brochure and virtual tour. It was a joy dealing with Dean and his family. Thank you for a job well done.  Vicki & Richard Craft

The O'Dell Group is in a league of their own in residential sales! They know the Orange County markets intimately, do their research, and represent both sellers and buyers extremely well.  When it comes to the Tustin and North Tustin markets, especially, there is no comparison. We cannot say enough good things about Dean, Sarah, April, Gary, Jennifer, Julie and the rest of the team!  Sarah Woodward


Just want to say thank you to the O'Dell Group for making the sale of our home stress free. With their exceptional knowledge of the market place our home sold quickly and at the price we wanted. The entire team was responsive to our every need and provided excellent advice throughout the process. We highly recommend the O'Dell Group to anyone looking to list or purchase real estate.  Mark and Debra Kabarsky


The O'Dell Group recently represented us on the sale and purchase of our homes. We were completely satisfied with the level of service they provided in all areas. The entire team from day 1 delivered like true real estate professionals and left no stone unturned. Their service-oriented organization maintained a positive aura which made the process flow smoothly. We cannot thank them enough and look forward to working with them again.  Dana and Shirley Crandall


I have known Dean and his family for many years. This recent sale of my home in North Tustin was the 4th or 5th property that The O'Dell Group was involved with me and my family. Dean knows the neighborhood and the property values better than anyone else. I highly recommend The O'Dell Group for all your real estate needs.  Peter Holden


The O’Dell Group represented me and my husband in the recent sale of our house in North Tustin and the purchase of our new home also in North Tustin. I cannot thank them sufficiently, nor recommend them highly enough. They know everything there is to know about real estate, finance, and property in Orange County. It was so tremendously helpful to have an entire team on my side through every step of these very exhausting and stressful transactions and every one of them was a pleasure to work with.  Judith Anderson


The O’Dell Group unquestionably provides the most exceptional service and holds to the highest of standards in the real estate industry. From the staging and marketing to the negotiations and final steps in closing escrow, they have been wonderful. Their example of leadership and teamwork is beyond comprehension and I would highly recommend hiring them for all your real estate needs.  Lynn Reinert


Best service in Tustin for your Real Estate needs.  Chris Crawford

Dean O'Dell did a tremendous job selling our residential investment property. Every detail - pricing, marketing, negotiating and closing, was handled with care and skill. The entire O'Dell Group was a pleasure to do business with.   Cindy McFadden

The O’Dell Group is a team of professionals who are responsive, competent and enjoyable to work with. I have worked with other brokers but I am glad we found Dean and Sarah. They are definitely the best at what they do.  Marc Magstadt


"My husband and I met Carmina at an open house and instantly felt comfortable with her.  She is professional and helpful without being pushy.  She was very patient during our search and was always available when we needed her.  She found us our dream home, and sold our home for us. We highly recommend Carmina and The O'Dell Group as a buying or selling agent."  Lindsey & Kevin Eidsvold


"We just want to thank you for the superb job you did in helping us sell our parent’s home on Orvillina.  Your knowledge of the market and marketing expertise resulted in our home selling for over the list price in a very short time. You kept us in the loop the whole way and always gave us timely and professional advice."  Denise & Tracy Pyeatt


We set extremely high standards for service and Dean and Sarah set the bar even higher for themselves and their team.   Their knowledge and skill of all aspects of the housing industry is seldom seen. Dean and Sarah's determination to produce results while upholding integrity and doing so with care creates customers who not only rave, but stay with them for life.  Stephanie & Scott Bragg


My experience with The O'Dell Group exceeded my expectations. Your entire team was innovative, energetic, thorough and responsive. At every step, their actions reflected a total commitment to the success of selling my home.   Larry Ford


April and the team were amazing. April was able to quickly understand what we were looking for and find us an off market opportunity. We are happy clients!   Sean & Jessica Ward


I really appreciated your knowledge of the market in the area was impressed by your entire team. The dedication, patience, support and advice The O’Dell Group provided to me was indescribable. There is no question I would recommend you highly as your performance record speaks for itself! It is easy to see why you are one of the top performing brokers in Orange County.  Blake Metsch


The O’Dell Group handled the sale of my parent’s home on Equestrian and their entire team truly pulled out a miracle in a short amount of time. Margaret and I are both very appreciative of your leadership over the process. You did a first-class job getting the property prepared, advertised, vetting potential buyers, and managing the whole transaction process. Given that my sister and I live hundreds of miles away, it was comforting to know that The O'Dell Group was there to handle everything for us. I highly recommend The O'Dell Group.  Maureen Fitzgerald


Thank you and your wonderful team. I am blessed to have such a professional group of advisors, who care.  James K. Lesse


Our experience of listing our unusual luxury view property was simply delightful! The O’Dell Group is a professional organization at all levels. They have extensive first-hand market knowledge and we were so pleased with their gracious personalities during the entire process.  Gerry & Clare Hall


The O’Dell Group’s professionalism and knowledge of the North Tustin market is incomparable. Dean represented us as both a seller and buyer. He and his staff exceeded our expectations on both transactions.  Lori Ash


The idea of selling our home of 23 years was a decision we labored over for many months. When we finally decided it was the right time, there was only one group we wanted to work with, The O’Dell Group. We didn’t even bother interviewing other real estate agents and we NEVER regretted that decision. We will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants a seamless real estate transaction.   Jeff & Nancy Sturman


We appreciate your time, patience, and everything you did to keep things moving forward quickly and efficiently. You all worked really hard and we appreciate your efforts.  Evette & Brian


 As you know, we had our house listed for almost two years with two other realtors prior to retaining you. The other agents lacked your expertise, professionalism and knowledge of Tustin, Orange, Irvine and adjacent areas.  Robin L. Wulffson M.D.


 From my first call to the conclusion of the sale of our house, your group was prompt, professional, proactive and personal.  Jennifer & Bryan Madrid


You handled the whole process with professionalism, understanding and patience while keeping focused on the need for only one buyer to finish the process. I would recommend you to anyone looking to sell a home, wanting to be professionally represented by a firm who knows what’s selling for what and what’s not. Your honesty and perseverance is greatly appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to have someone call me.  Charles Kutcher


I am writing to thank and acknowledge your team for the amazingly speedy sale of my home in August of this year. With you guys representing me, we worked together to make a sale happen fast because time was of the essence for my situation. It’s clear you were the right team for the job.  Maryl Petreccia


Selling a house that one grew up in is never easy. I attribute the quick sale of this house to your experience and knowledge of the real estate market and Tustin neighborhoods.  Professor Ann E. Killibrew


The O'Dell Group is Amazing! We met April by chance at an Open House and it was the best thing to happen besides finding a forever house. Her enthusiasm for her work and her follow through are fantastic. She works with an equally great team and their talents really made sure we got our house in a competitive process.  Jen and Larry Labrado


I wanted to thank you and your team for helping with the sale of my mom’s house. You were honest and up-front with me from our first meeting, and I always felt confident that I was getting accurate information and expert advice from you.  Samuel Damskin


We are glad we had the experience of your team to both buy this house and sell our old one. We always felt you had our best interest at heart in this transaction. As the transaction proceeded through escrow, you earned our confidence because contingency removals and the other things that needed to get resolved were always handled smoothly.  John & Candy Marder
