Todd was my agent for both buying and selling a house in Northridge.  Both sales were professionally handled and closed escrow quickly.  When issues arose, Todd answered my questions and offered suitable options to move things along.  He never tired of calls from me; he kept me informed each step of the way; he sent docusign documents so I did not have to take time out of my busy days to complete paperwork.   He is equally awesome as buying agent and selling agent.  It is my pleasure to have already referred him to friends.  He's as good as it gets!

As first time home buyers, the experience can be daunting and terrifying, but Todd was patient and helpful every step of the way. His daily emails updating the available homes for sale cut down on time spent looking, but he would also call and give information on homes off the website. If he had a hot lead on a property he would call us to see if we could go check the place out. When we would send him questions via email his responses were almost instantaneous. He was more than happy to answer any question and keep explaining everything until we understood it. He was always very pleasant and never got frustrated no matter how many properties we didn't like. As a veteran of the real estate business he had a lot of great insight and background into the process and was able to point out positives and negatives in every place we saw. Todd was able to read our facial expressions and body language and never tried to sell us on a place that we clearly had no interest in which is huge plus because nobody likes pushy sales people. Todd was with us every step of the way and made the process of buying a home as painless as it could be.

Todd Riley is the best!!! This was my first home purchase and I was very nervous about the entire process on top of that I was out of state purchasing a home in California. Todd went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. He sent me actual pictures of my property and even picked me up from the airport when I flew in for a viewing . He answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. After attempting to work with two other agents prior to Todd I don't know what I would have done without him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase/rent property.

My husband and I started working with Todd back in February because we needed help looking for a home. I am convinced we found the best Realtor in the Valley! From the beginning, Todd listened to our needs and helped us prioritize the things we wanted in a future home. He only sent us listings that matched what we were looking for (versus some Realtors who just run a generic search on MLS and "bulk mail" the results back via email). He helped us evaluate the pros and cons of each home and guided us through the decision-making process. He did such a great job of screening the properties that we saw 7 homes in one day and made an offer on the spot. This was a big deal for us because we didn't want to waste our time driving around the Valley for homes that were clearly not a good fit for us.

Other great perks:
-Quick response to all questions/requests for update
-Extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods (schools, commute times, safety, etc)
-Advocated for us as buyers to make sure we were getting a great/fair deal
-Foresees potential problems before they occur and helps us work through/avoid them

In the rare instances he was unavailable, his partner, Heather, was always equally accessible and reliable. He also connected us to a great mortgage broker (Joseph Lee). The end result is a fantastic new home, in the neighborhood we wanted, with the qualities we were looking for, and at a great price on top of it all. Don't bother with any other realtor. Todd truly is the best! Thanks so much for all your hard work!

Todd Riley was my realtor and in one word was amazing. He tirelessly searched for potential condos with all my requirements. He sent listings to me everyday and brought me to all the places we picked together. Sometimes several in one day. Communication was excellent with Todd always responding to me by phone or e-mail. He always was willing to rearrange his schedule to match the availability of my sister and myself. Todd gave suggestions that helped me so much in my search. He found the place I eventually bought and I just love it. Todd was with me every step of the way, letting me into the condo several times to check things and take measurements. This process went much smoother than I could have expected. I love my new place so much and don't plan to buy any other property, but if I do...I will definitely call Todd!

Heather & Todd recently sold my house and they did it the first weekend of Open House. Not only did they price it right, I got more than the asking price. This is remarkable in the current Real Estate market. They work hard to advertise in several areas and post great pictures on their website. I am so pleased using their services and you will be too!
Thanks Heather & Todd.

Nobody knows the area of West Toluca Lake better than Heather Farquhar. She helped me sell my house recently. She was there for me every step of the way. Heather has extensive experience and is incredibly knowledgeable about the entire process. She is definitely a strong advocate for her clients. Her advice was always rock solid and she made the whole experience as pain free as possible. I highly recommend

Reference for Heather Farquhar and Todd Riley,
I am happy to provide a reference for Heather Farquhar and Todd Riley.  Prior to listing with Heather and Todd, my husband and I listed our home for sale with another realtor we were referred to.  Our home was on the market for six months and we received no offers.  We were frustrated because we believed our former realtor was not making much of an effort to sell our home.
We were delighted and relieved immediately when we decided to re-list our home with Heather and Todd.  They  spent a lot of time with us discussing the appropriate listing price for our home and providing us with relevant comparable information.  They were motivated to list and sell our home.  Within a week, Todd had scheduled a professional photographer to photograph our home and produced a beautiful brochure/mailer.  In addition, Todd created a website for our listing.  Throughout the process Heather has been diligent at keeping us updated on the status of our listing.  We receive weekly emails from her with statistical information relating to open houses, listings, and hits on our website.  Heather and Todd are  very conscientious and responsive.  They always replies to emails or phone calls the same day.
Heather has very much been an advocate for us during the sale of our home.  During negotiations, she has been invaluable.  We feel grateful to have the opportunity to work with them.  We will certainly use Heather and Todd again for our future real estate needs.

To whom it may concern
My husband & I put our Sherman Oaks home "on the market" in November,
2009  just to see if we would get any bites. It wasn't the best time of year to sell a home. Everyone had told us we would never sell our home in this particular economy.  I personally interviewed five different realtors for the job. I chose Todd Riley for his financial background and for his very personable demeanor. He walked and talked the part. It was a no brainer decision for me.  He was definitely "the cream of the crop.“
Todd immediately listed our home in many places that I had not even imagined. A professional photographer came to the house and took gorgeous pictures and a virtual tour of our home was immediately on the internet getting thousands of hits a day. Todd showed our home during the day as well as the evening and then he would come find us at our local restaurant just to let us know if the client liked what he saw. 
Todd SOLD our house in 3 days at $50,000 over the asking price! Who could ask for more?
I found Todd to be very easy to work with, experienced as well as being professional on every level.  He even helped put up signs that brought people into our neighborhood to help us with our large garage sale before moving out. An added bonus indeed!
I highly recommend Todd Riley at ( He will make selling your home an enjoyable experience. He certainly did that for us!

Todd Riley is a professional in every sense of the word.  I was a very picky buyer, and Todd was so patient throughout the whole process.  I also couldn't believe how accessible he was!  Every phone call was returned and every email was answered, often within minutes.  He was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and was on time to every appointment.  His clients come first, and it shows.  Thanks for all of your hard work, Todd!
