When I met Anna Child I was in the middle of a family crisis.

I had one week to find a rental in Newport/Costa Mesa. I had never visited the area and had no knowledge of the rental market. I told Anna two things, the boundaries of the high school district I needed to be in and my approximate budget.

The absolute complicating factor was that my rental application was not standard and a potential barrier to rental.

I don’t know what I would have done without Anna.

I have very high expectations as a person who has bought and sold many houses and rented many times and she exceeded all my expectations.

In particular, she worked 24/7 with me to find and secure our rental. We hit many obstacles and she worked through them quickly, efficiently and calmly, which is key.

I was literally packing my home while she executed the entire transaction, site unseen except for a FaceTime walk through. We absolutely love our neighborhood and the home she helped us rent.

Anna is a very hard worker, very smart and savvy. Knowing she was on the job gave me 100% peace during one of the most stressful times of my life.

She is someone I’d want in my corner, very tenacious.

Anna is lovely to work with and I deeply appreciate how she fought to help my family during a very tough time.

Anna is extremely knowledgeable! She is dedicated to ensuring that her client's have as stress-free experience as possible -- answering questions quickly, and being pro-active in anticipating the client's needs. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone looking for a reliable, honest, hard-working agent!

Great effort to bring attention to our Topanga lot for sale. Ended up with 2 bidders well above the normal sale price! Closed the deal today and very happy with the sales price. Previous sale attempts were very half hearted with other brokers contacted in the past with their listing suggestions at 1/3 the price i got thru Anna and Jim childs. Their hard work resulted in a very successful navigation of the complex paperwork that exists nowadays in real estate escrows.

When my parents passed away my brothers and I were left a beautiful home built in 1902, but in need of some TLC. Jim and Anna Child went the extra mile to find just the right buyer to take on the challenge. Thanks you two for putting in all of the hard work necessary to make this happen.

Jim and Anna did a tremendous job of selling our house. They are very knowledgeable and did a lot of extra work to sell a very unique old house.


Anna was great during our first home buying experience. She was very helpful and above all, she was very patient with us and our millions of questions and concerns. Definitely would recommend.

Anna Child is the most amazing agent we have worked with. Anna is extremely knowledgable, friendly and really easy to work with. She was also extremely patient with us picky buyers and made the whole process easy and stress free. Not only did she help find us our dream house but she also very quickly sold our home to purchase the new one. We don't ever plan on moving, but if we do, she will be our first choice.

Anna is honest and reliable. She helped me to price my rental. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and current trends. She has helped my family with many home repair referrals such as roofers, flooring installers, painters, plumbers and general handyman. All were reliable and did great work. She is very responsive, easy to contact and a great communicator.


Ms. Child is one of the most honest hard working real estate agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge of the community, it's history and future plans were invaluable. Communication was a breeze, she was quick with responses to all my questions. I look forward to working with her in the future.


Anna helped us purchase a short-sale home in 2011. She was wonderful to work with, helpful, responsive and patient. She stuck by us through the 6 month short-sale process and made sure everything ran smoothly. Would definitely work with her again.


Anna is one of the most responsive, available, knowledgeable, and truly dedicated real estate professionals I've ever worked with. She works very hard for her clients. Highly recommend! In fact, I would never buy or sell again with anyone else!


Anna handled our home purchase very well. We had some difficulties in the negotiations even up to the final day the deal was to close. The seller had not come through on some promises so we wanted to stand firm even if the deal fell through. Anna supported us 100% and the seller somehow managed to make good on everything on the final day. Even though Anna was a fair distance away she was always there when we needed her. She really puts her clients first.

Anna was fantastic, helpful, and very patient during our home search. We knew what we were looking for and Anna helped us find our home! Anna has tons of contacts which helped the whole process from origination a loan to closing. This was the easiest process we've been through! She is a kind and genuine person. I will recommend Anna to all who need a top-notch agent!
