Sabine Gebser

Buyer's Agent

Sabine Gebser

Sabine has had the distinct pleasure of calling Venice her home for 23 years and counting. Whether it’s the oceanfront, secluded walk streets, canals or the famous Abbot Kinney Boulevard – she intimately knows the ins and outs of this inspiring, creative beachside enclave. A broker for 16 years, Sabine has focused on distinctive architectural properties. A keen listener, problem solver, communicator and diplomatic dealmaker, she’s sold over 150 architectural dream homes, classic artist compounds, countless Venice lofts, and overall exceptional properties to a diverse and international clientele. Sabine has also successfully managed the sales and marketing of several multi-million dollar live/work loft projects throughout Los Angeles. Navigating through all situations with confidence, wisdom, sensitivity and intuition, she’s a dedicated expert at what she does. Sabine is in the business of making dreams come true, and helping her clients create positive change, happiness, and exponential wealth in their lives — one real estate transaction at a time.

Born and raised in Germany, Sabine moved to the U.S. at age 17 to pursue her academic career at Andover and Vassar College, and finally fell in love with the creativity, eclecticism and unique lifestyle of Venice. During her first decade here, she owned the notorious art gallery Half a Dozen Rose, where she curated, produced and promoted over 100 local, national and international exhibitions and multi-media events.

Sabine’s experience selling both art and architecture, coupled with her sophisticated sense of style and natural ability to understand her client’s individual needs and desires, has offered her a unique skill set to find even the most discerning buyer their perfect home. Fluent in English and German, with a working knowledge of French and Italian, she’s also superbly qualified to help European and international buyers find the right property in Los Angeles. Sabine’s passion is the environment – the ocean and a clean energy future. She loves being of service and creating deeper relationships within her Venice community.

Sabine found us our dream home in the perfect neighborhood for us. That would be praise enough, but she also made every step of the journey enjoyable. She…is cheerful, kind, thoughtful, and knows the Venice and Santa Monica area like the back of her hand. As first time buyers, we didn't really know anything about the process of searching for and purchasing a home, but Sabine (and her assistant Alex) made it easy and clear as she guided from start to finish. Her wisdom and negotiating acumen is unmatched. We are incredibly grateful to her for all her tireless work on our behalf, but we are also fortunate to have found a new friend along the way - all in a short but intense two months. We can't recommend her highly enough

Sabine and her assistant Alex were delightful. Sabine was always available to answer contractual question even on the weekend. The inspector she recommended was affordable ($300) and helped…us save an extra 10K on the purchase even though the condo was in perfect condition.

Everything was coordinated in person and also by email. We used DocuSign to speed up the process. It made the 100+ pages of contracts and reports feel like a breeze.... well maybe not, but you get my point!

The condo we ended up purchasing was only our 2nd location with Sabine. It never felt like she was forcing us to buy anything. It was a honest and transparent experience.

I think the 16 years of experience are clearly demonstrated. When ever we encountered something that may seem like an issue, Sabine had all the answers and knew how to handle it. She has been through so many sales that she has seen all the possible outcomes of every scenario.

A few examples that come to mind are notably: "supplemental tax". We were worried we would be taxed "supplementally" over the existing property tax, but that was no the case.

Another example was when we were bargaining to get 10K for repairs. The listing agent was against it (naturally) and counter-offered 5K. In a bold move, Sabine affirmed "$10K or we cancel". It worked!

Lastly, Sabine has a great sense of fashion.

5/5

Sabine Gebser found our dream house and were a pleasure to work with. She is professional, and we were very impressed of her knowledge of the game. She…took a load of the stress out of the search and were instrumental in streamlining the process. While having all the expertise and relevant market insight, Sabine was also thoughtful and considerate in listening to our needs and desires. She went above and beyond in helping us, we highly recommend her and her team.

I would give Sabine 10 stars if it was possible. Sabine is the most detail oriented, protective and trustworthy realtor we have every worked with. She’s also super…knowledgeable, moves quickly, and has impeccable taste and an eye for quality. We’ve now worked with Sabine for both renting and buying and she has proven to be a true partner every time. Best of all, she holds your hand post closing to ensure you have everything you need from the right landscaping architects to trusted cleaning professionals.

I can't recommend Sabine highly enough.

Throughout the process of buying our house, I felt like I was Sabine's only priority. She was constantly available and…
willing to discuss any of my concerns, however small. She is a friendly but forceful negotiator, able to fight over details while keeping the bigger picture in mind. Patient and calm under pressure, she even brought a deal back to life that I thought was dead. In short, I'm extremely grateful that I had Sabine on my side.

Oh, and she's fun to be around too.

Sabine Gebser from Halton Pardee far exceeded every one of our expectations (and our bar is high because my partner is also a real estate professional in our…hometown!)

We were in a unique situation because we live in Chicago and were buying a second home. We were only able to spend a very limited about of time in LA during the purchase process, and Sabine did a phenomenal job representing us from afar.

Her intimate knowledge of the Venice market helped us find an amazing house that met both our current and future needs, and made the purchase process smooth and successful. We will definitely work with Sabine on any of of our future needs on the west side!

Sabine Gebser at Halton Pardee was fantastic - she located and helped us make competitive offers on properties in the Venice/Mar Vista area, and even after we put…a temporary hold on our search she remembered exactly what we were looking for and brought us the perfect property which we ultimately made a successful offer on. Her negotiation skills are excellent, she is a pleasure to deal with, and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

I recently moved to LA from Brooklyn, NY and was put in touch with Sabine by a mutual friend. Sabine did an amazing job finding me a great…house in LA in a very short time. I highly recommend Sabine and her team!

Sabine is wonderful. She found me a place that I love. She is an absolute professional — with a deep knowledge of the market and an ability…to match the person to the right place. I had complete trust in her judgment, which was very helpful when navigating a new area. I would, without hesitation, recommend her. Her assistant, Tyler, was also excellent. They were a total pleasure to work with.

I worked with Pardee Properties and specifically Sabine Gebser to purchase a property in Santa Monica. From start to finish it was a great experience. Sabine is…wonderful. They not only have intimate knowledge of the market but they are fun to work with, have great taste and overall are just great people. I think they have a unique ability to really understand their clients. I would highly recommend working them and I already plan to in the future as well.

After working for a couple months with a family friend without any results, I met Sabine Gebser at an open house, and decided to change course. As an…artist, I had some unique requirements, and Sabine was able to understand exactly what I was looking for. We soon found the perfect property, and she even talked me down on the counter offer and saved me a bit of money when it was accepted! The whole process was efficient and done without any stress - the sellers were extremely amenable and fair as well. We had a little closing party, and I look forward to using Pardee again in the future.

I was very pleased with the service, responsiveness and knowledge of both Tami Pardee and Sabine Gebser (and Pardee Properties overall). Sabine was great to work with and…we were able to close at significantly above asking in 30 days. The knowledge of the local market, the attention to detail, the marketing approach, the recommended staging company (Fictional Homes) and the support during escrow were all excellent. I will definitely use Sabine and Tami again and highly recommend them!
