LaVonne and Herb were wonderful to work with. They know the area very well and what helps homes sell fast. We never had to worry about anything throughout the entire process. They explained each step, so we knew what to expect and were very responsive anytime we had questions. They are clearly experts in the field and we would highly recommend LaVonne and Herb to anyone who is looking to sell their house. They are excellent!

I want to express my sincerest thanks for all you did to list, refurbish, and sell my mother’s house at 24786 Calle Vientos in Lake Forest. You are the hardest working realtors that it has ever been my good fortune to work with. Since I was a realtor myself for 10 years, now retired, I have encountered many real estate agents and you are BY FAR the BEST!! You treated our family home as if it were your own. Your attention to detail with the numerous projects such as painting, carpeting, flooring, termite repair, as well as the repairs requested by the buyer was amazing. You literally took care of everything which was a great comfort to me since I live many miles away in CA and spend most of the summer in CO. The staging you arranged was beautiful and I am sure a good reason why the home sold so quickly. Your honesty and integrity are second to none and everything you said you would do, and more, was done and you kept me informed at all times.

It would be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone looking to list or buy a home and you can have them call me at any time. Thank you so much, I am thankful for all the help you gave me.

6985 Brass Place, Carlsbad, CA 92006

I had expected some challenges in moving out of state, before listing my Carlsbad home.

I had questions and concerns. Do I stage, or leave the home empty? Who is there to let inspectors, repairmen, appraisers, etc. into the home? Who will be there to take care of the little problems that always pop up in a home sale?

My fantastic realty team, LaVonne Vojak and Herb Dittrick, of Orange County Realty Co. answered my questions and concerns, handled the everyday tasks, and treated my home sale like it was their own. Their marketing, pricing strategies, affordable staging recommendations, and proactive communication, are a testament to the excellent service I received from start to finish.

LaVonne and Herb stand out as one of the most conscientious, hard working professional teams, I have worked with. The level of real estate knowledge and attention to detail this team provides, is second to none!

Thank you LaVonne and Herb!

We recently sold our home with Lavonne and Herb. LaVonne and Herb know the tract inside and out.  They've been in the neighborhood for a long time and we always knew we would consider them. Their expertise and knowledge helped us sell our house at full price within 14 days when people were still quarantining. One of the most pivotal decisions they made was offering a 3-d tour. Additionally, their team of photographers, escrow officers, and pretty much anyone that we came across with was vetted. Their expertise was also instrumental in lining up the sale of 3 homes-- a complicated real estate transaction that required the deft and experienced.  Recently, we've had to deal with numerous agents and separate escrow companies. LaVonne and her team know what they are doing and these are the guys you want in any RE transaction.     Matt & Katie Dwight

LaVonne and Herb worked tirelessly for us in our recent relocation into Lake Forest. They were more than patient finding properties, beyond helpful negotiating terms and incredibly knowledgeable resolving issues. They will go the extra mile every day to represent you. We were in the best of hands and you will be too with LaVonne and Herb!  Kevin & Ava Susank

I have been working with LaVonne for 14 years, through several transactions as both a buyer and seller. LaVonne has always done an outstanding job representing me. She works tirelessly and keeps close tabs on everyone involved to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy a home, or looking to sell. – Mike Noack

Within the last 12 years Herb and LaVonne have helped us sell two houses and buy two houses. We keep coming back to them because LaVonne takes beautiful photographs, which are used in marketing our homes. Herb, who usually works most frequently with us, will do anything he can to help, including delivering a 15’ ladder to us ASAP. We asked him if we could tour 4 homes in Corona and the next morning we were touring four homes in Corona – from Lake Forest. They price homes on target for the area, and they pinpoint what they believe a seller should receive. Our most recent house sold within $1,000 of what they had estimated we’d get – and we were very pleased with the amount we received. It was a good and fair price. One of the things they do that no other realtor has done for us is they hold open houses rain or Shine, every single weekend. I believe that if one wants to sell a house, they have to get people in to see the home – more than once. We are very pleased with the work they have done for us in the past and we will keep coming back to them again and again. An added plus, Herb has a fantastic , dry sense of humor, which I really enjoy. As a team, they are great!

I have used LaVonne and Herb of Orange County Realty Co. in a couple of real estate transactions in Lake Forest over the last 12 years. They go above and beyond to get the job done! They are knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and will work very hard for you to take care of business. I was selling my most recent home from out of state and they took care of everything and stayed on top of all transactions and activity required to sell a house. Even though I wasn’t there in person to oversee things, I felt confident everything would be handled in my absence and it was! I would highly recommend LaVonne and Herb to anyone needing an honest, reliable and hard-working team to represent you in all your real estate needs. Donna Bryant

LaVonne and Herb helped me find my dream home in Orange County, when I moved here a couple of year ago. Pleasant couple to work with, and very knowledgeable with properties in Orange County. One thing that make them stands out is that, they will work at your pace, until you find a place you really like. Not pushy at all. I appreciate that as I am a picky buyer. Johanis Hashim

LaVonne and Herb were great from start to finish.

First off, on the initial meeting they did a thorough walk through of the house noting both good & bad aspects. This allowed them to come back to me with a realistic plan for the sale & what price I could expect. They laid it out clearly as to how much I could get if I sold “as is” and what the sales price would be if I did some key improvements. They prioritized the items to be done and had a wealth of professional & affordable contractors. They took care of organizing everything. LaVonne did an excellent job of photography & staging the property. Having seen other homes during open houses, I realized the value that she brought to the table. They did a great job during the entire negotiating process – through the counter offers to negotiating the repair request.

Finally, even post sale and my new home purchase, after they had already been paid, they were helpful and continue to follow up on issues, going above and beyond expectations. All in all, I would thoroughly recommend LaVonne & Herb to anyone. Don’t get fooled by “big name” realtors who have a team of people. LaVonne & Herb take care of everything PERSONALLY and are vested in your success. – Mauro Nardini

When we decided to sell our home, we knew that we wanted to have LaVonne and Herb be our agents. We had met LaVonne a few times at open houses that we had visited, and she was so professional and friendly. LaVonne and Herb are such a knowledgeable and hardworking team. They are very detail oriented and resourceful. We have bought and sold a handful of houses, but this by far was the easiest transaction that we have ever been involved with. We will be using them to buy our next house. We highly recommend LaVonne and Herb to anyone that wants to sell or buy a house. – Robert and Terry Leonard

I inherited this Lake Forest home from my father. I live in Palos Verdes, which is an hour away. The home was in need of improvements, as my father was the original owner. LaVonne and Herb did 2 evaluations of my home: Selling it “as is” and Selling it with improvements. I chose the latter. LaVonne & Herb recommended contractors and decorating advise. Herb visited the home to check on the work DAILY for 6 weeks! They sold the home for exactly what they said it would be worth after the improvements!! I was able to realize a significant profit due to their expertise, marketing program and hands on management of my listing. I never had to work with an “assistant.” I had a fantastic experience, and highly recommend them to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home! – R.

We are so appreciative of the expertise of our realtor LaVonne Vojak. We recently sold our home in Lake Forest and LaVonne made the entire experience a pleasure. From the beginning she guided us in the preparation and listing of our home, answering questions and connecting us with resources we needed.

Because of LaVonne’s effort our home sold quickly and the escrow process went smoothly. We especially liked the easy communication and quick response to any questions we had along the way. In addition to being a great realtor and professional business woman, LaVonne was a joy to partner with in what could have been a stressful transaction.

We would definitely recommend LaVonne Vojak to anyone looking for a great realtor. – Catherine and Robert Ziegler

Dear Herb and LaVonne-

What can we say – you are simply the best! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did selling our parent’s home in Lake Forest. The two of you make an amazing team and go so far above and beyond what we expected or have ever experienced with realtors in the past. You are such experts in your field and gave us great advice from the very beginning as far as what was needed to get the home ready to sell, showing us the many comps used to set a fair listing price, to getting the house sold for top dollar in a very short time—Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Living out of state and selling a home as a trustee could have made this a difficult process but you were there the entire time making sure every detail was taken care of and more importantly, we knew we could trust you with everything!! The time and effort you put in was incredible and is so much appreciated. We can honestly say that we could not have done this without you and in the process, have come to know you not only as great realtors but also as friends!

For anyone looking to hire a realtor, we highly recommend Herb and LaVonne of Orange County Realty – they are the Best of the Best! – John and Kay Gilbertson (Contact information available upon request)

Our family, who lives in Serrano Park, a tract in Lake Forest has been working with LaVonne and Herb for over 15 years. They have represented our family on a total of 18 transactions – selling some more than once!

We own several homes in the community and LaVonne and Herb have always represented us whether it was a sale or a purchase. They have always been honest, knowledgeable, and hardworking. We know that we can trust them to affectively handle any transaction, and some were difficult!

We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to benefit from their vast experience and knowledge as we weathered the ups and downs of the Orange County real estate market. We highly recommend them to anyone who is selling or buying a home.

LaVonne Vojak and Herb Dittrick, the broker and owners of Orange County Realty Company have represented my wife and me in the selling, buying and renting of houses since 2008. During that time, we rented a house, sold a house and bought two houses including the one in which we are living now.

After 52 years of marriage and many moves, we have encountered all kinds of real estate folks. LaVonne and Herb are unquestionably the smartest and most honest team we've ever met. They know the market, they know how to market and they are relentless in distributing listing-specific mailers and door hangers. Before Covid, they were religious about weekly open houses and always brought the best cookies to give out.

We are in our final home but if we ever needed to sell again, we would contact LaVonne and Herb without hesitation. Finally, we referred my business partner and her husband to LaVonne and Herb. They have used L & H for one sale and one purchase and remain very happy.
