Team Ortiz

Is a growing, dynamic Northeast Los Angeles real estate sales group serving discerning clients locally and internationally. The team is backed by the strength of esteemed Pacific Union, the fifth largest real estate brokerage firm in the nation, and the #1 independent brokerage in California. Its 1700 real estate professionals in over 130 communities throughout California alone give Team Ortiz an edge when it comes to client relocation, referrals, marketing and access to highly-qualified buyers.
The team was founded by respected Realtor Ed Ortiz with the goal of leveraging his personal and professional real estate experience and success to bring together a small, winning lineup of exceptionally competent agents. Their complementary skills and expertise are paramount in the winning formula for their unstoppable growth.
