About Irina

About your San Marino Real Estate Agent:  Irina Netchaev & Associates



Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me and my team.  Before you select a Realtor to represent you, its important to understand the type of experience, tools, techniques and strategies, the real estate agent will use to your benefit.

Our team is focused on implementing the latest technology along with an “old fashioned” approach to selling real estate in helping you find your home or market your Pasadena home for sale.  91% of our buyers find us through our multi-media marketing and on-line presence.  We utilize neighborhood websites, Featured Listings on Realtor.com, personal home websites, flash presentations and are members of numerous Multiple Listing Services allowing us to list your home on four different Multiple Listing platforms.

Your advocacy is our number one concern.  We work for YOU and take our fiduciary responsibility as your Realtors very seriously.  Whether my team helps you negotiate the price and terms for your first home or helps you get the best possible bottom line on the sale of your home, our objective is to be your advocate and implement all our experience and tools to reach YOUR goals.

Our team is Customer Service focused.  We take the time to find out what is important to you and work towards reaching your goals.  Since most of our business comes from referrals, we are not happy unless you are overwhelmingly satisfied with our services.

Important Statistics*:

~  72% of Irina’s sales are past clients or referrals.

~  Irina’s Listings sell in an average of 33 days. That’s 12% faster than the Pasadena Board of Realtor average of 37 days.

~  Irina’s percentage of sale price to list price is 103.5%. The Pasadena Foothill Board average is 100.4%. That’s an average of 3.1% more money in the seller’s pocket when a home is listed with Irina Netchaev.

On a home priced at $500,000, Irina could potentially save you $500 in interest and taxes (due to faster sale of home) and get you $15,500 more on the purchase price.  That’s a difference of more than $16,000 on an average transaction!!!

My Goal is ‘to make it easy and profitable for you to do business with me!’

I will consistently and efficiently provide home sellers and buyers the most professional real estate service available in Pasadena.

    “I met Irina during the purchase of our townhome in 2004 – after nearly a half dozen prior real estate transactions over the years. Without exception, she was well-researched, energetic, proactive, and a personal delight to work with. We have since completed a sale/purchase to a new home and the experience was exceptional. The many amazing stories of her efforts, service, and personality can’t do her justice.” September 8, 2007″Thomas Dover 

    “Irina represented me, a home buyer, with purchasing our first home in California. She successfully fullfilled every need my husband and I demanded from the beginning to the end … Irina is truly a professional, reliable, and trustworthy agent and always in our highest esteem. An agent should be someone you can trust. Irina works hard, she’s smart and is truthful. I would not hesitate recommending her to handle future real estate sales or purchases on my behalf and perhaps yours, too…”Cori Walworth 

    “Mathematicians have the unique ability to break complex equations down into their simplest form. Irina does just that for Real Estate! Her instinctive ability to collect data combined with her unique ability to market a home creatively makes her a dynamic resource in the Pasadena Real Estate market. With such intimate knowledge that Irina possesses over the real estate process, it’s no wonder she’s a “go to” resource to many buyers and sellers! Irina not only produces results, she does it with a certain charm and flair that makes you want to continue a relationship for years to come.”  – Ricardo Bueno 

    “We hired Irina to both help us with our first home purchase as well as the sale of that home when we moved to the Central Coast. I always felt completely comfortable with her, with her business judgment, and with the results. At no point did I think she had anything but our best interests at heart during either process. On top of that she’s a great lady with high integrity and an excellent personality and level of professionalism. Would have continued to work with her had we stayed in the area.” March 7,2008″Robert and Melissa Hope

    “Irina is amazing! Exceptional follow-through, accessible (day and night!), and knowledgeable. We bought our first home through Irina.”Krisianna Bock

    “We had spoken to many agents and found most of the houses they suggested less than appealing.  Here is where Irina’s talent really showed and her expertise was most apparent.  The homes she showed to us demonstrated a zeal for good taste and a diligence in work ethic.” –Saul and Tina Correa

    “Irina’s patience in developing a strategy and creativeness in presenting an offer really proved to be the difference in the seller accepting the offer.  Irina went way beyond the call of duty, kept us up to date on timelines, deadlines and documents to be completed while catering to our schedules.  …I have already referred her to family and friends and will continue to do so!” –  Hugo and Lisa Correa

    “Thank you so much for all your help.  Your personal touch in preparing my townhouse for sale was greatly appreciated.  Your encouragement and professional advice relieved my concerns… You are a valued agent.” – Thomas Mike Griffin

    “Throughout the process of searching for, making offers on, and finally securing a property, Ms. Netchaev proved herself to be a consummate professional.  …Despite the difficulties of working in an over-heated real estate market, Ms. Netchaev always presented a calm, collected demeanor and ensured that all of our transactions flowed smoothly.  I commend you for having such a capable and caring professional on your team, and look forward to working with Ms. Netchaev again.” – Anny Surmenian

    The estimate of the property value helped us in keeping perspective about the sale and making our final decisions.” – Ben & Hideko Furuta

    “Within five days of the Open House, on my home, I received five great offers.  My profit was far more than I had ever hoped for.  Not only was Irina’s professionalism apparent while selling my home, but she negotiated such a fantastic price for me on my new dwelling!”Joyce Donato

    “I chose Irina because of my personal knowledge of her work ethics.  I knew I could trust her to do her best for me.  I knew Irina would have good advice.  Irina was terrific!!!  She helped us get that extra money for the carpet – we really needed it!!!” – Lynn Mahlmeister
