Yonathan was extremely helpful in navigating the process of purchasing my first home. He was very communicative and easy to work with every step of the way from making an offer and all of the way through closing. I could always tell that he listened to my feedback and represented me with my best interests in mind. I would highly recommend Yonathan to anyone looking to purchase a home in the El Sereno area or nearby neighborhoods.


Yonathan is super knowledgable about properties in the area we were looking - South Los Angeles. From the beginning he always negotiated well for us and educated us on the buying process. I definitely would recommend Yonathan and Team Ortiz to others looking for rental properties. They have a ton of experience with the market and got us a great deal on the property, showing us numbers for many comparable properties.

Yonathan has made selling my home a very smooth and easy process. He was always available to answer any questions I had regardless of time or day. He provided me with as much information as he could and kept me updated with every single thing I needed to know.

I wanted to thank Team Ortiz for helping us sell our home at 851 Banks court drive Highland Park, from the start they understood our needs. They went over every detail of the process of selling our house and patiently answered any questions. They always made themselves available to us. We worked on a plan to sell our house and they came through for us a 100%. We would definitely recommend Team Ortiz to any one who is thinking of selling or buying a house. Thank you again Team Ortiz!

They really know the neighborhood and they know the comps they know houses that have sold recently and what they went for. They knew listings that were coming up, they showed us everything that was listed but they didn't waste our time -that was my favorite thing about them - it was very quick because we didn't have a lot of time and they were great and patient. We did a 1031 exchange everything went smoothly with his finance people they were amazing - especially Leslie at Skyline. She worked late hours and we'd text documents since were from a different state it was a very smooth transaction. Painless real estate don't use anybody else!


Yonathan was referred to me by a friend....and I'm glad it happened! We just closed on a property last week. He kept things simple. He kept things professional. He went to bat for me when I needed him and then some. What more do you want from a realtor? I'll be doing more business with him in the future.

I have nothing but positive comments for Team Ortiz. I worked one on one with Yonathan and he demonstrated really professional attributes. Yonathan went above and beyond to find a beautiful and comfortable home for my husband and I. We were never in the dark in the process of buying a home with Yonathan. I highly recommend this team for any first Home buyers!

As a first time buyer I was nervous about buying my first home. Not only is it stressful but it's tough in certain markets these days. I came across Team Ortiz in an open house and I have never felt more at ease about purchasing my first house. They made it easy for me and worked with me. They helped me with locating a beautiful home in Highland Park. All I can say is I am FINALLY A PROUD OWNER of a house! Thank you Ed and Yonathan.

I only got to work with Yonathan from Team Ortiz but I must say he was very patient with my family and I in getting the house of our dreams. Yes that sounds cliche, but this guy works hard to find whatever the client wants . One thing I must say is that they made us feel like we were their only client. As for negotiation, he worked very hard to get us a great deal. He drove to my house at any time that was convenient to me to help my family and I. I spoke with at least 5 other Realtors before being recommended Team Ortiz. This team not only made us feel comfortable but worked harder than any other realtor to get what was perfect for us. I highly recommend them. You'll see what I'm talking about when you meet this team. And on a personal note thank you very much Yonathan, my family and I will always be grateful for the house you helped us get.

Ed and his team sold our second home in one hour for the exact amount we asked for. We requested no mls, no clients walking thru, short escrow, all cash and he was able to do exactly what we asked.
Try his services, you will be very happy.

I can't believe I'm writing a review already. Yonathan worked diligently to help me get my new condo in less than a month, and he turned an intimidating experience into a painless and almost effortless process. I'm so grateful to Yonathan for his guidance through this transaction. He was readily available to answer my questions which eased my concerns.

I worked with Ed Ortiz in purchasing an investment home located in Palmdale, CA. Despite him being based out of Los Angeles, he travelled out to preview the property with me & ensured I got into escrow for no more than my budget peaked at. I was so pleased with his attentiveness, strong negotiating skills, honesty & knowledge of the market that I used his real estate services again for the listing of my investment property located on Chelsea St Los Angeles, CA. For this second instance, he helped me pin point the correct price point to sell my triplex & ensured a swift closing for myself & the new owners. If you hire Ed Ortiz & his team for your real estate needs, surely you wont be disappointed.

Eduardo was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was purchasing a house for the first time. Eduardo helped with the scariness that comes as a first time buyer because I was afraid of being dupped. He helped me a lot and answered any question I might've had whether it was something very simple or a complex question like understanding different interest rates. He was also very responsive when I wanted to see a particular house. He made sure that I knew what I was doing and helped me find a house.

I was referred to Ed Ortiz by my father as he had previously aided my dad in successfully buying & selling some properties. I was initially very hesitant as many new homeowners tend to be, but Mr. Ortiz was patient enough to explain to me why the purchasing of my duplex was going to be a financial gain in the long run. He was helpful in explaining the purchase forms I was signing, & just all around attentive from the negotiation, inspection process, and all through closing. Pleased to inform that I have concluded the refinance transaction on my duplex & will be using the funds towards the purchase of my 2nd home & undoubtedly will be using Ed Ortiz & Team to get that transaction completed. Very grateful for his work efficiency & would absolutely recommend him to others.

When my husband and I decided to sell our house we didn't know where to start. One day I was driving home and saw a realtor sign Team Ortiz but what really caught my attention was that one of the names was Yonathon Baltazar that happens to be my maiden name! I took it as a good sign and shared it with my husband. He called them the next day?. We had them come over they were on time and very polite. They looked over the house and property and asked us questions about ourselves. We liked their right away and decided to sign up with them.They gave us good advice on how to go about selling our house. If we needed help they were always available even just for reassurance. They went beyond their responsibility when they helped us move furniture because we had no one to help! We have shared our experience with family and friends. We couldn't be more satisfied We will recommend Team Ortiz 100 percent!

ust met him at an open house this weekend and he was extreme knowledgeable about the community! As a future home buyer in north east LA, I look forward to working with him as my realtor. I came in having no idea what area I was really trying to move into and when he showed me El Sereno I fell in love. It’s barely been one week and everyday he’s been sending me properties that fit what I’m looking for.


Dear Prospective Homeowners:
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Yonathan Baltazar as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We were comfortable in our small two-bedroom townhouse until the birth of our triplets. We were still fine for a while with all three babies in one room, but once they became toddlers, one room was grossly inadequate and small children need a safe outdoor space. We needed a larger home with a yard and fast!
Yonathan had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.
A master with the contract negotiations, Yonathan came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. Throughout this home buying process, He also managed to sell our townhouse for an excellent price.
We found Yonathan to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Yonathan was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our townhouse to attract buyers quickly, and his advice worked like a charm.
We are pleased to recommend Yonathan Baltazar to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again he will be our first choice in real estate agents.

Yonathan is very knowledgeable, honest, patient, caring and so much more. He was extremely helpful in explaining the entire process. He negotiated our closing cost and we paid nothing and he helped us get a huge credit for repairs. I highly recommend him.
