Cassandra Monnastes

Buyer's Agent

Cassandra Monnastes

Cassandra brings a deep appreciation and broad knowledge of the West LA area to her work as a Buyer’s Agent. She left a real estate career in Northern California and moved here that same year after visiting in 2007 and falling in love with Santa Monica.
Cassandra’s concierge approach to real estate sales means that she tailors her services to each individual client. Whether first-time buyers, or experienced investors, she listens carefully to her client’s needs, concerns, hopes, and dreams. Cassandra uses her well-honed negotiating skills to achieve for her buyers the best possible terms of purchase and her goal is to exceed expectations. The joy and enthusiasm Cassandra has for living on the Westside inspires her work.

Cassandra is a wonderful agent and lovely person. She is so kind and knowledgeable and has gone above and beyond for us. We highly recommend her in every…way and would never think of buying a house without her.

Cassandra was excellent in every respect - reliable, smart, hard working, highly knowledgeable. She is highly dedicated, and help with absolutely every detail perfectly. Of the 30+ brokers…we met, she was by far the most professional, the most helpful and the hardest working, and really put in the work to help us with our first home purchase (and we were pretty picky about everything).

Highly recommend working with Cassandra. She was amazing to work with. Me and my fiance had never bought a home before, Cassandra helped walk us through the process…and offered a ton of knowledge on what to expect and look out for. She was extremely responsive and was able to negotiate and close quickly on a house we are very happy with - both with the price and property.

I've worked with several real estate agents in the past and was never happy with any of them. I'm glad we found Cassandra through a referral, she's been…great in all aspects. First of all she's not pushy at all, she wants to make sure you're 100% comfortable with what you're buying. Second she's extremely reliable and precise: she followed up on 10s of things and never once dropped the ball on anything. She went above and beyond her role and helped with pretty much every aspect of our purchase.
I highly recommend her, I know if we ever have to buy/sell again we won't consider anyone else!

Cassandra is simply the best real estate agent out there. We had terrible experiences in the past with our agents, but Cassandra is totally at another level. She…is extremely knowledgeable about real estate market and the west side in particular. She is very responsive and resourceful, hard working and super precise. She brings all her knowledge and resourses to help you taking decisions, always patient, flexible and never pushy. She is amazing at negotiating and doing her client best interest. I couldn’t recommend her enough!

I can only say positive things about Cassandra. The full experience was top of the line! Her proffesionalism, knowledge of the market and her ability to negotiate…enabled me to buy a beautiful town home that got 4 offers after only 3 days on this hot market. She has been extremely helpful too during the process of moving in and setting up my new place. I am so happy that Cassandra is my realtor and I highly recommend her.

Cassandra was wonderful to work with. She was surprisingly knowledgable about an area she usually doesnot work in. I dragged her there! I suspect that…she did a lot of research. She was on top of everything, but did not pressure us to do any thing on her schedule. She was fast when we needed her to be and slow when slow was best for the negotiation. Cassandra is pleasant and clear in all of her dealings, with everyone. I loved working with her and I think you would, too.

if I could have given Cassandra six stars for everything I would have. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Venice in general, and was able not just to advise…on the houses we looked at, but also provide advice on everything in the neighborhood as part of the whole lifestyle (where to eat, shop, work out, etc.). As part of the whole process she became a trusted friend, and we really relied on her to help us every step of the way. Cassandra’s negotiation skills are truly excellent and she was able to get what we wanted, where we wanted, and at the price we wanted. She was also great to communicate with - very friendly and professional, and also very quick to respond to any request we had. We really couldn’t have found a better person to work with, and we definitely look forward to working with her again.

Cassandra has been a tremendous support in the process of relocating to the Los Angeles area. It's been helpful that she knows the ins and outs of every…neighborhood I've inquired about (the schools, community happenings, off market properties, shopping area). She has made what would normally be a daunting and overwhelming process fun and easy. I look forward to closing on my first California home with her.

Cassandra is amazing! We were beyond happy having her with us through the process of bidding on multiple properties. It was a stressful and at times frustrating experience,…but Cassandra was there to guide us through it. We ended up with our dream house and cannot thank her enough. We highly recommend Cassandra. She is knowledgeable, patient, calm and above all just a very pleasant and honest person, which can be hard to find among real estate agents.

Cassandra is awesome. As aggressive or laid back as you need her to be. Helped me through every step of the process including helping coordinate some stuff most…realtors probably wouldn't bother with or make the time for.

We loved working with Cassandra to buy our first home! We were on-again-off-again for nearly 2 years trying to get into the Westside market, and Cassandra was…always there when we needed her / found something we liked. Once we finally found a home, Cassandra worked quickly with the selling agent to get offers in and answer our questions in a timely fashion. She never once had a bad attitude; and always a smile on her face. We got an absolutely incredible deal on our home and we couldn't have done it without Cassandra. She also referred many useful folks to use including our Mortgage Broker (Jonathan O'Donnell at PERL, AMAZING) and several contractors.

Cassandra helped me find and purchase my first home and I couldn't be more grateful. She was so communicative throughout the process and always gave her honest…opinion about how to handle things. I ended up beating out several other offers because of her educated negotiating tactics and knowledge of the process. Having bought a house before everything felt a little overwhelming, but she too the time to explain everything and keep me on track during a very short escrow period. Even beyond the closing of the deal she's been in constant contact making sure I have everything I need to deal with repairs and questions for the previous owner/listing agent. Can't recommend Cassandra and Pardee enough!

We had a truly wonderful experience working with our agent Cassandra and the entire team at Halton Pardee. Our agent Cassandra was incredibly knowledgable, kind, patient, generous with…her time and professional. In a (ridiculously) red hot real estate market where every house we liked seem to have 10 all cash, over asking price offers, we were starting to feel like it was going to be impossible to find a home that we could afford in the area we wanted. Cassandra kept the hope alive for us and we just closed escrow last week on our first house.. in a lovely neighborhood we had almost given up on. I'm filled with gratitude for our agent and everyone at Halton Pardee that helped make it happen for us.

We had a wonderful experience working with Halton Pardee. Our agent Cassandra Monnastes truly went above and beyond in making sure the process went as smooth as…possible for us. Not only was she was knowledgeable, responsive, and attentive to detail, but she really advocated for what was best for us throughout our search. Thanks to her guidance and hard work, we were able to finally buy our first home as newlyweds. I can't recommend Cassandra and the Pardee team enough!

We recently closed our second transaction with the help of Halton Pardee. This time we were buyers and worked with Cassandra Monnastes. Our research lasted for over a…year and we considered different types of houses from brand new construction to houses in need for renovation to tear-down properties. Cassandra was always very supportive and responsive and we feel she went above and beyond to answer our questions and concerns. We also happened to be out of the country for most of the escrow process and Cassandra was on top of every step and made the experience very easy for us. It was such a pleasure working with Cassandra that we will miss her now! Thank you Tami for connecting her to us. What sets Halton Pardee apart is that they truly make your life easier!

I'm extremely happy about buying a house with Halton Pardee. Cassandra Monnastes acted as my buying agent. She was exceptional: Knowledgeable, responsive and meticulous. I simply…presented her with the outcome I wanted (in terms of price, location, style, etc) and she made it happen. I would absolutely purchase property with the assistance of this firm again.

Cassandra Monnastes provided amazing service to help us find and purchase a prime condo in the SM/Venice/MDR area. Once we narrowed into the target, she moved very quickly…and was able to get a successful deal completed.

Her integrity and local knowledge was key to determining the right offer for the property in this highly competitive Santa Monica real estate market where a miscalculation either…way can mean paying too much or missing a great opportunity. I am happy with the price, location and quality of my my new home.
Through out the appraisal and inspection, and closing process her follow up to my questions was timely and to the point. Her feedback was just as diligent. Overall, a first rate professional through all aspects of the transactIon.

My husband and I have been working with Cassandra Monnastes at Pardee and couldn't recommend her any higher! She has been amazingly supportive of our needs and…very responsive, via texts or calls, day or night (!) whenever we have a question or concern. Currently we are going through Escrow (as first time buyers!) and this process could not be going any smoother. Through the process we really felt as though Cassandra had our best interests in mind, and we would recommend Pardee and Cassandra to anyone and everyone looking for a knowledgeable and savvy buyers agent.
