WHAT CLIENTS SAY
I firmly believe in giving back, and when I found out that CASA was giving a home to a family in need as a result of us buying our home I was ecstatic. I haven’t heard of anything that is this substantial. To actually provide someone with a home, to shelter a whole family, is huge. Really exciting! There are times that you hear about proceeds from something you buy that goes towards a cause, but it feels distant and not relatable. This is direct and it’s impressive that Chad and Nick are doing it.
Rick & Kim, Buyers
I have known the Engle brothers since childhood so when I started to think about selling I reached out to CASA. Nick and Chad started the process by developing a creative and tailored marketing plan for my property and that fit my needs as a seller. They were very detail oriented and communicated all potential challenges and opportunities with us. I knew I hit the jackpot when I found out that all of the agents at CASA donate a home for a family in need. I have always thought I should do more and am aware of how good we have it. The team at CASA takes it upon themselves to do that for me and at no added cost. Talk about a trustworthy realtor team! I would never go with anyone else and recommend CASA to anyone looking to buy or sell in Orange County.
Chad and Nick are the best real estate agents! We were first time home buyers so we were a bit nervous and clueless about the process. We had a lot of questions about everything and Chad and Nick quickly and efficiently answered all of them. Their patience and guidance throughout the process was unbelievable. Chad and Nick worked tirelessly throughout the process to make sure we were happy. They were very honest and direct, especially when delivering not so good news, which we appreciated! We have referred them to many of our friends/family already and will absolutely recommend CASA to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home!

Nick has been helping me purchase my first home in East Side Costa Mesa. As soon as I started thinking about buying a home, I talked to Nick about what I was looking for. Since the market in East Side is so competitive, it's important to be on top of homes as they come on the market. In my line of work, I can't go look at properties at the drop of a hat. Nick really listened to what I wanted and has gone to preview properties for me as soon as they come on the market. He keeps me updated on anything worth seeing. Nick has given me an edge in this market and that's priceless! Not to mention, he is donating a home for someone in need for me!!! I'm having such an incredible experience working with him and I can't wait to hear about the family I'm helping!
We could not be happier with our transaction. Sold our home for more than list price and bought a new home for under list price. We would not be in our current home if Chad was not on top of the counter offer. Within 15 minutes of receiving a counter on the home we purchased Chad was prepared with a new offer. It was our offer the buyer took. That is due to his work ethic! He has knowledge of the areas, Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley and Costa Mesa, where we were looking for a home. We have been in our home for a week and he has checked in multiple times to see that all is going well. At no point did we feel neglected. Chad will do WHATEVER it takes to ensure you are happy with the transaction. He was not in it for himself but was in it to make sure we found a good home for our family. He listens after you visit/tour a home and makes sure the next one has what you are looking for. Felt zero pressure to list with him and even told us a number of times if I can’t get you what you want we can part ways. We received great service and we would recommend Chad to friends, family and anyone reading this review. Easiest and most honest transaction we have had when it comes to purchasing a large asset. You will not be disappointed if you use Chad Engle for you real estate transaction!
Tim & Summer, Buyers
Nick definitely puts in the work and it shows, as he is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the local area, market conditions and pricing. And if he doesn’t know an answer he does the research and gets you the correct answer. In fact, we wouldn’t have ended up searching in the area we are if it wasn’t for his ability to decipher our needs and wants and suggest neighborhoods previously unknown to us. We can obviously tell that Nick came from a luxury background as his level of customer service vastly exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Nick for anyone looking for a realtor in Southern California.
Rachel & Jeremy, Buyers
We are so pleased that we chose Chad Engle as our real estate agent. He is experienced and professional. He knows the real estate market and understands the nuances of pricing, timing, location, curb appeal and turn-key condition. We were impressed with his expertise from price discussions and staging to final walk-through. Chad aggressively marketed our home and brought us 4 solid offers 3 days after the open house. Because of his efforts we sold our house over list price. Chad was 100% engaged in the process and worked diligently for us. We never felt alone as he navigated us through paperwork, inspections and repairs. Chad was a great partner in this major life event and we feel grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him.
Steve & Sherri, Sellers
The current market didn’t offer us many choices for the home my family desired. Nick took it upon himself to spend hours calling, mailing and networking through the neighborhoods to find us something that was not available on the market. Today anyone can follow the listings online but his level of dedication to his clients is truly unprecedented. If you couple this drive and dedication to hit his client’s target with his education and background I don’t know if there is another agent that can compete.
Steve & Livi, Buyers
CHAD all the way! He's the BEST out there! He is truly a man of many talents!! Chad sold my house in Santa Ana within one week of being on the market. With all the offers I had, he helped me narrow it down to the best buyers. Anytime I had questions, no matter the time of day, he was there to answer all of my questions promptly and always maintain a professional, yet warm presence. He communicated with others quickly and updated me often. Best of all, he helped me sell my house for the best price. But, it doesn't end there!!!!!! -----AND----- Chad also helped my family and I get into our dream house! Not only did he work hard at communicating and negotiating with other real estate agents, brokers, buyers, and sellers, he made the whole house selling AND house buying process so easy, enjoyable, and FUN!!! He also made my children feel important in the entire process.
I have used Chad both for buying and selling, and have referred him to anyone I know looking for a realtor. He is very professional and knowledgeable about the highly competitive local market. He listed my house in Costa Mesa and sold it above asking price in the first week on the market and negotiated a rent back which allowed my family and I to stay there while we found another house.
Chad got us an early showing on the house we purchased, which enabled us to submit an offer before they held open house. Due to the current lack of inventory, it really pays to work with someone that has good relationships with other local realtors and sellers. Im confident we would still be submitting offers and getting beat out by all cash buyers if we hadn’t gotten the inside tract (see what I did there?) on the house we bought.
I have been a friend of Nick’s for many years and when I had an investment property that I was considering selling he was the first person I contacted. He got to work immediately developing a detailed and specific marketing plan for my property and together we perfected the details and had it ready to go to market. Personal reasons prevented me from selling the property but when the time comes to sell I wouldn’t go with anyone other than Nick. I like to feel like I have a partner in the process and Nick was just that, always available to assist and foresee anything that came up along the way.
Kevin & Jeannette, Sellers
Chad handled the sale of my Mother’s house a few years ago. I was really impressed with his knowledge of the area and how he constantly kept in touch with me to let me know how things were progressing. He is very professional and was helpful in suggesting things I could do to help the house sell. I recommended him to a neighbor who wanted to sell his house, and Chad listed it, and had an open house, and the house was sold quite quickly. He then even helped the young couple whose house he sold find another home to buy. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Debbie & Bill, Sellers
Trustworthiness is the top quality that I look for in a real estate agent and Nick exemplifies this quality. He was open and honest with us and always willing to share his vast knowledge of the industry and area even if it resulted in talking us out of a particular purchase. I found Nick to be very diligent in his real estate practice and always willing to take the extra step be it in his research, prospecting or creativity throughout the process.
I’ve been working with Chad on several different projects from single family homes to multi-unit dwellings. He has a vast knowledge of the orange county market. We have made offers on properties and his attention to detail to make it a very clean and thorough offer before writing the offer is very impressive. He also was very helpful in finding a realtor for in me in San Diego on a property I was selling. I ended up with a top notch realtor in that market from his referral and sold the property in a short amount of time.
Justin & Ali, Sellers
Nick’s level of customer service surpassed our expectations. He is extremely detail oriented and always seems to be one step ahead with valuable insight about both the properties and the process. We couldn’t imagine searching for a house the way we used to over the Internet. I would highly recommend getting offline and letting Nick handle everything for you!
Darryl & Ellen, Buyers
I have bought and sold several homes over the years and have never had an agent that I felt put my needs before their own profit - until Chad. Chad listened to me, and actually heard what I was saying. He was diligent in getting the job done, and I felt like I was in really good hands with him selling my last house. I trust Chad, and would not hesitate to use him again.
Working with Chad was an excellent experience. I started looking to buy knowing very little about the process, but he was knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. Also very responsive, always answering my dumb questions quickly. :-)
It’s a competitive market, but Chad helped me get into the house I wanted!
After interviewing multiple agents, we hired Chad to sell our home, and we know we made the right choice! He made our decision easy with his knowledge, energy, and passion. You can tell he loves what he does and we made the process enjoyable and very smooth! He came up with an aggressive and comprehensive marketing plan, created a lot of buzz and was able to get multiple offers on our home. When it came time to negotiate the offers, he was able to get us ABOVE our asking price while also having them pay for closing costs, etc. We were blown away by Chad’s level of service and tremendous job. We are now searching for another property with him and have referred him to many of our friends and family. You are in great hands with Chad!
Chad is simply the best real estate professional we could have asked for. He helped our family purchase a home, and was better than anything we could have asked and hoped for. He personally went out to a neighborhood that we wanted to buy a home in and talked to all the neighbors to find us a home that wasn’t on the market. Then when it came time to negotiate, he went to bat for us. He treated us like family and now we think of him as family. Thank you so much, Chad!
There couldn’t be a better agent out there than Chad. Professional, hard working, honest, knowledgeable, motivated, intelligent, funny, and passionate is how I would describe him. What more could you ask for in an agent? Chad will help us and all of our friends and family buy and sell every home from here on out!
Brian & Stacy, Sellers
My husband and I have been working with Chad for about a month. We love his proactive approach to the business. He’s young, energetic and also extremely knowledgeable and efficient. I know we’re in great hands with him. As first time home buyers there have been many questions and uncharted territory along the way and he’s been there to guide us through the process and make it a pleasure all the while!!! He’s everything we could’ve asked for in an agent!
Chad was incredible!! He truly cares and he listens to what I want and beyond that he actually follows through and does what he said he would do! You can tell he is incredibly knowledgeable about Costa Mesa as he knew all of the inventory available and homes that sold off of the top of his head! He’s very personable and easy to talk to and get along with. He truly made even the most difficult times of the process a pleasure with his positive and light-hearted outlook! Thank you Chad!
Chad was wonderful to work with in finding a home for us. He was incredibly patient and understanding throughout the process! Chad kept us in the loop constantly, offered great perspective, advice, and ideas, and he went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable with everything. I would absolutely recommend Chad to everyone I know.
Jared & Nicole, Buyers
My experience in searching for a home with Chad’s help was nothing short of spectacular. Although the process could be stressful and consuming at times, Chad’s constant optimism made it simple and even fun. He educated me on areas and was even willing to search for properties that weren’t on the market by personally going out to knock on doors, and send letters in neighborhoods I wanted to buy in. He always intently listened to me, was available to help and overall a PHENOMENAL agent! I have already recommended him to multiple friends of mine!
Jamie & Steve, Buyers
I have known Chad Engle me for many years. When I was thinking about selling my property in Huntington Beach, Chad was the first person that came to mind. Once I contacted Chad, he went to work immediately. We worked together to come up with a good marketing plan and price. Chad was extremely diligent & started working before the home came on the market. He contacted his past clients, homeowners in the area, and buyers that he knew in order to try to sell the property quickly. Through his hard work he was able to find someone who offered full asking price. Unfortunately, I found out I wasn’t able to sell a week later due to unforeseen issues with the property, but Chad did everything that he promised and much more. I am so grateful for all of his help & look forward to working with him again. I have since referred all my friends & clients to Chad because I rest assured knowing that they are in great hands.
Alex & Stephen, Buyers
I had been looking around at open houses and browsing the internet on my own looking for a home. As a first time home buyer I have kind of been overwhelmed with agents at open houses trying to get my information and get me to work with them. I also met Chad at an Open House, however he had a much more relaxed and helpful approach which I immediately connected with. He spent time asking me questions about what I was looking for and my time frame and I could immediately tell that he was not only incredibly knowledgeable, but genuine in his desire to help understand what I’m looking for and how he could help. He has been a pleasure to work with throughout the process and I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!
After 15 years in our home raising our 3 kids we made a decision to sell our family home in July. After our first meeting with Chad we chose to list with him. He was prepared with all the factual neighborhood data but more importantly a candid approach to what we could realistically expect as far as price and marketability. We worked together to make cost efficient improvements and staging of our home a few weeks before the listing which resulted in receiving multiple offers after just one weekend open house. After that Sunday’s Open House we had multiple offers resulting in a cash offer over our list price and it closed in just 3 weeks. Chad’s execution on the marketing plan for our property was excellent. Although selling a home can be difficult I am a firm believer, especially now, that it should be done by the professionals and I highly recommend Chad as the Real Estate Agent that can deliver the results you want.
Pam & David, Sellers
I contacted Chad to help me look for investment rental properties. He is very knowledgeable, responsive and a great negotiator. I will defiantly recommend him and use him in the future, and continue to use him as we are still in the process of finding properties.
