Zillow 5 Stars
Roger and Catherine were a delight to work with. They were patient in what turned out to be a very long process. I truly felt that they wanted the best for my family. When I showed interest in a property, based in on-line pictures, Catherine would often check out the property and report back with, "this is not your house." The few times where she liked a house for us, she was spot on. Roger was very hands on during the actual sale and purchase transactions. When there was a slight glitch in the sale, he took care of it completely. I would recommend them whole-heartedly.

Roger and Catherine — keeping it real….
I’m about to embark on my third real estate adventure with Roger Jarnigan and Catherine Binamo.
Why? Well, the last time, we went into a bidding war with five back up offers, just to give a clue.
These two understand the emotion tied to the buying and selling of property. Not only are one’s hard-won pennies involved, but all the dreams that those pennies hold. They dream and work hard with you.
They listen well, and have keen eyes…know when to cajole, and when to talk straight.
Because they are engaged listeners, they are able to hold your vision for you, when you yourself might stray off course.
Because of their experienced eyes (and good taste!), they know what is important to spend your time and energy on in preparing a home for sale -- how to get it up to top market potential -- all the while respecting your lifestyle and finances.
Their advice to us has always been sound.
They are not so desperate for a quick sale that they afraid to slow the pace by negotiating on a client's behalf; they’re with you for the long haul.
On the buying side, they are equally insightful, easily recognizing your individual needs, quirks, desires…not pigeon-holing you into the box of - "well, that’s what everybody wants these days…”
Every time I've asked a question, it’s been answered well. And if they didn’t know the answer, they found out quickly and thoroughly. They’ve introduced me to neighborhoods and pockets I’d never have explored, and having taken the time to get to know me — brought up what might become a pitfall for me in an area I was considering. I appreciate the protective stance.
They are worldly and fun, but boy do they know their s**t here in L.A.! I couldn’t be happier to recommend these two.

I've bought property before from Catherine! Diligent, professional, warm, and smart are only a few of ways I would describe Cat. I'm very fussy and she was patient-- actually saw properties in advance to see if they were to my liking before setting up appointments. So appreciative of her for that! Seeing another house today and am very excited to give her the business again! Happy she's paired up with Roger, too. I knew him socially from years ago and have only good things to say about him, too. Love this dynamic duo!

Catherine is an exceedingly bright and creative professional who exceeded our organization's expectations. If I had to sum up Catherine in three words, those words would be: Integrity. Commitment. Dependability.

Yelp 100 2015 Challenge - Three's times the charm
Anyone close to me would know what I had to go through for real estate agents. I was on my last initial to sign for a property when an unnamed agent made an inappropriate comment to me. That was a deal breaker.
I had already seen 40 properties with 5 different agents - some inexperienced but hungry, some not so experienced and it showed. When I met roger through a recommendation from my boyfriend, I instantly felt at ease.
Roger had already taken pics and scoped out the top pick of my list before we even met. i am the type to make a full excel sheet of my listings with pros and cons. i knew what i wanted and didn't want. on the day we met, i showed up late and at the wrong location when work was slammed. I was still on the phone with my bosses when we met. Roger took it all in stride. He had every property listed with his opinions on each place. We were still looking at places when it turned dark.
After I found THE place, he went through my roller coaster ride with changing lenders as my first lender screwed up and didn't lock in the rate. Everything that could go wrong...did...outside of his services of course! And somehow we made it through. It was a nail biter for sure. From the escrow company forgetting to write my unit # so I never got the papers to a delay due to no smoke detectors in the unit.
Roger came to congratulate me on the closing - he even wore the guest house slippers that were too small for his feet (I'm Asian, no shoes inside) and toured my new pad. His service post closing with a CD full of my financial dealings with the house - all ready for my tax agent was over and beyond.
I'd recommend Roger in a heartbeat.

After our first amazing, unusual and positive experience with Roger in which our condo played the main role, there was no doubt that for our next real estate adventure, which is actually going on, Roger would be the one and only person to do this transaction for us. So, here we were 5 years later and look...as his business grew over these years so much that it would exceed extreme limits, he knew to merge with the best, most professional and warmest person in the real estate business: Catherine Binamo..."Bon Dieu" what a fresh wind in this real estate world...You're simply the best people in whose hands I feel "tranquille" to leave our property.

Cat and Roger are consummate professionals and we can't recommend them highly enough. They made what can be a stressful process smooth, easy and exceeded all our expectations!

I highly Recommend Roger
Roger Jarnigan and his team are amazing. He was our real estate agent when purchasing our home. He was thorough, proactive, and continuously guided us in the right direction every step of the way. My husband and I highly recommend Roger to anyone.

Roger was great when we bought our 1st home. He never made us feel stupid for not knowing the process, and he always took the time to explain things to us clearly and completely. He never talked down to us. He also never tried to talk us into something out of our price range. Most importantly, he has stuck with us! We have been in our home for a year and a half now, and Roger still checks in with us to make sure everything's going okay. Can't wait to use Roger to buy our 2nd home!

Roger helped me sell a condo. He worked his network and advised us how to get the condo ready for sale. Then he brought me two offers within 3 days of the listing. I sold the unit for 15K over the listing price.

Roger is the most professional, hard-working, honest person in the business. He actually helped me not only buy a home as a 1st time homeowner, but he also helped turn around and sell it. When it came to the purchase, Roger made it as inconvenient on us as possible. He would send a list of homes and I would tell him what looked interesting. He would actually go out and look at them before we went out together to make sure that it was even worth it. Nobody does that these days! He was able to complete the transaction within a very specific time frame. He got it for us at a great price. In fact, two years later, we again hired him to sell it. Roger's knowledge of the business and his connections were astonishing. Our house sold in less than 24 hours for $25,000 more than listed. Roger is amazing at what he does. Using him in a real estate transaction is the smartest decision you could make. And even after the sale, he is always willing to answer questions. He is a well rounded agent who people should be fighting over to use!

Roger Jarnigan was absolutely outstanding to work with. When my uncle unexpectedly passed away in 2012, I was charged with selling his home and commercial properties. Because I lived two states away, this was challenging. I was very fortunate to meet Roger, who helped tremendously by selling my uncle's home quickly, putting me in touch with local vendors who helped disposition the home possessions, and referring me to a commercial realtor to help sell the commercial properties. Throughout the entire process, Roger consistently made himself available to help with any issue that arose. He was always pleasant, always professional, always friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Roger Jarnigan!

Roger is AMAZING! This was our first home and I couldn't have asked for a better resource, he was honest and helpful and patient while dealing with a new home buyer. Hope fully he is around when I sell my house and buy a new one because I can't imagine using anyone else!

Roger's been our real estate got-to man and guru for years now. We do nothing without consulting Roger first. If you want someone who will have your back every time all the time, and knows what he's doing? Contact Roger. I could not recommend him highly enough.

After meeting Catherine (because I flat out needed a realtor and quick) she not only became my "forever" realtor. She also became a true friend. More than any one I have ever done business with, I knew this woman had my best interest at heart. I have introduced her to my friends and she quickly sold their homes (often with multiple bids above asking) I wouldn't use anyone else.

I have had the privilege to work with Catherine as both a buyer and seller of a home. First in 2006 as a buyer and than again in 2015 as a seller. Her work ethic is unbeatable. She knows her business inside and out. Always has a smile and is always available throughout the buying or selling process should you have any questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.
