Testimonials

  • "Devin and his staff were an absolute savior! I never could have gotten through my situation without him. He is incredibly knowledgable and honest. I feel that some people take short cuts, or don't put their full effort because of how busy they are. Devin is the complete opposite of this. He will always be there for you every step of the process. His communication skills are excellent as he always keeps you abreast of what is going on. When dealing with deadlines that is as important as it gets, and worth his weight in gold. I really can't say enough about Devin, and the entire Lucas Team!!!"

    Sean P. [Yelp review]
  • Devin and Courtney went well above the call of duty to help my family find the perfect home. After a multiple offer situation we were outbid, but Devin's persistence meant that when there was a problem with the other buys we were given the opportunity to buy the home (and Devin even negotiated a lower price than our original offer). Once we were in escrow, Devin and Courtney made everything very easy to understand. I would absolutely recommend Lucas Real Estate.

    Aaron F. [Zillow review]
  • "A great guy and honest with a technical knowledge of landlord tenant law. Highly recommended!"

    Stewart W. [Google review]
  • "We were looking for an investment property and asked Devin as our agent because he is not only an attorney, he is also an experienced broker/realtor. We have known him since 2013. He assisted us in a legal case then. He always replies our emails promptly. He is always on time when we have an appointment. He explains things in plain language, so we can easily understand (English is not our mother language and we know nothing about the law and legal terms ). He gave us useful information and advice when we submitted the offer. He was very helpful during the escrow processing. He has all the documents ready, keep us updated, and follow up on several things with the seller. We did not have to worry about a thing. He was taking care of everything for us."

    kwhw [Zillow review]
  • "Devin Lucas is a really great guy. He helped my wife sell her condo and clean up a small dispute at the same time. A smart professional who is there when we have called or emailed him. When the opportunity arises I will contact him again."

    Todd R. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin served as a real estate expert for a legal matter which included estimating fair market value of a rental unit and drafting a declaration to be submitted to the court. Devin's service was outstanding. Not only was he professional, but he provided the requested information in a timely manner and with excellent quality. He greatly exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs."

    Jennifer M. [Yelp review]
  • "I highly recommend Mr. Devin Lucas and his services. He was absolutely great, professional, reliable, kind and went above and beyond in helping me. Thank you Mr. Lucas for providing me with excellent service!"

    Meganmjoyce [Zillow review]
  • "Devin was great. He was professional and returned my call quickly. Devin gave me sound advice regarding a tenant landlord issue. Talking to him for 20 mins gave me more knowledge than I have gained in the last three years getting to know my way around the Real Estate world. Thank you very much for you help Devin."

    Shah M. [Yelp review]
  • "He-knows-everything. You can trust him. Ask him about any concerns or questions, and he'll guide you in the right direction and make everything clear. He's a fantastic resource, and can help you with any part of your real estate process. He's been assisting my husband and I from 2 counties away! It's obvious that he treats everyone with respect and has a very high level of integrity."

    Ashley C. [Yelp review]
  • "Totally professional --yet casual, and without drama--through the entire process of selling a home through a Trust. No easy task. Mr. Lucas even advised me through a Small Claim that ran concurrent to the escrow, and for which he probably did not recover his time, but provided wise counsel nevertheless. Don't hesitate....Mr Lucas is the definition of professional."

    mail0782 [Trulia review]
  • "Devin helped my fiancé and I find our first starter home this year. Working with him couldn't have been easier from start to finish. Having known Devin for a few years prior, the foundation of trust and professionalism had long been established... and when we were confident it was the right time to buy for us, there wasn't a second of hesitation on who to call. I couldn't have asked for a better Agent, and I know we will work with him again in the future! Thanks Devin, you're a rock star!"

    Joe O. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin is a true professional. He is unique in his background when it comes to real estate... I'm a seasoned real estate investor. One thing I've learned is that things happen often in real estate and the best thing you can do is to have a trusted, knowledgeable person fighting in your corner. So few people truly appreciate this advice. Even though I'm a broker myself, I reach out to Devin on each transaction I have. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy, sell, or get to the bottom of a real estate question. Best of all, he is extremely approachable and does not pressure you in any way."

    Navid F. [Yelp review]
  • "Mr. Devin and his staff were absolutely amazing in helping me with my living situation being uninhabitable. While my living situation and my livelihood were being threatened by my landlord, Mr. Devin went above and beyond in making sure that my case was not only resolved immediately, he also made sure it was to my benefit 100% every step of the way. I can't express enough how excellent and professional Mr. Devin's services were, and how thankful I am to Mr. Devin and his staff for all the support and kindness they have shown me."

    banannasmiles [Zillow review]
  • "... Just one call with Devin and you will feel at ease. He tells you everything upfront..."

    Kim T. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin Lucas represented my wife and I on the purchase of a new home in Costa Mesa in November 2014. He also represented us as we went through the process of "selling" then eventually renting our condominium in the same area. He tirelessly listed, organized open houses, and eventually handled several purchase offers on our condo, which we later declined. Once we decided to rent, Devin listed our condo for rent, interviewed many potential renters, and successfully found our current tenant. At every step of the way, Devin was a consummate professional - always friendly, responsive, and incredibly helpful..."

    Kyle B. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin was great. He was professional and returned my call quickly. Devin gave me sound advice regarding a tenant landlord issue. Talking to him for 20 mins gave me more knowledge than I have gained in the last three years getting to know my way around the Real Estate world. Thank you very much for you help Devin."

    Shah M. [Zillow review]
  • "Devin was very responsive, professional and just all around AWESOME to work with! I am a Realtor in San Diego, but needed support in Newport Beach...no direct contacts so by a whim looked up fellow Realtors on Yelp, and hit the jackpot! Devin was my first call, and he was fantastic! Looking forward to working with him again in the near future!"

    Shana G. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin did an excellent job helping me and my wife find a prefect home. His attention to detail, ability to listen to and understand his clients, and personal passion for his profession all contributed to a terrific experience."

    hossellman [Zillow review]
  • "Devin was actually recommended to me by another lawyer I found on yelp. He gave me advice over the phone and was extremely helpful. I ended up calling the next day to use his service and needed a real estate contract drafted up within 48 hours. He catered to my time crunch and explained everything to me I didn't understand. He even helped with explaining some contingencies I should add in the contract that I hadn't thought about. I was very overwhelmed with my situation and he was very thorough."

    Ami P. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin is a highly competent and professional agent I have worked with. We just completed a very smooth lease-option transaction, which I personally have not done before. By working with Devin, this new transaction type became a breeze. We were able to work out the complicated details verbally first, then Devin put down all of the terms very clearly on contract. It was very easy for my client, the landlord/seller, to accept Devin’s offer, over another similar offer that came in at the same time. Devin was able to put this deal together by acting with urgency, with fast communications and his professionalism. I look forward to working with Devin in the near future!"

    drjoechen [Zillow review]
  • "A professional, detailed business transaction! I purchased my present home through Devin Lucas real Estate. Devin knows his business! All documents were explained, reviewed and questions answered in thorough detail in order for my home purchase to close efficiently and promptly... Follow through was excellent with a customized report on what needs to be completed and what is in progress, including home inspections, pest control clearances, etc. In addition, Devin consulted as a pro bono legal representative on my previous home sale. Again, his professional help was of immense value."

    Margaret N. [Yelp review]
  • "We purchased a house and sold a house at the same time. Devin handled both of the transactions. Devin's experience as an attorney was indispensable and he seamlessly handled the numerous minor issues that arose with both sales. Devin's negotiation skills are outstanding. We were very happy with the results of both transactions. We also really appreciated that Devin makes full use of technology and we only had to meet with him a few times during the two transactions. The vast majority of the documentation and other issues were handled electronically. Lastly, we found Devin to be very responsive, timely, and prepared throughout both transactions. We are truly grateful for the job he did."

    Brian O. [Yelp review]
  • "I had the pleasure of using Devin as my real estate agent for buying my first home. He is very detail oriented, forthright with information, works to understand the needs and motivations of a buyer and sellers his approach to best suit the needs of his clients... I appreciated the way that he dealt with naive first time homebuyers and guided us through the process from start to finish. I was very impressed that he remains available for questions even after closing. I would recommend Devin R Lucas Real Estate to everyone, and I do."

    Jason P. [Yelp review]
  • "I would recommend anyone who needs a realtor who is also an attorney. What a combination, more rare than gold!. Let me put it this way, not all real estate agents are the same, just like not all doctors are the same."

    Jeff C. [Yelp review]
  • "...Devin provided me with invaluable advice that no other attorney I contacted was able to offer! I was able to resolve the issue amicably and could not be happier with the results..."

    Bret M. [Yelp review]
  • "I do not even know where to begin to talk about Mr. Devin Lucas. Every good thing I have to say about his has already been said by others who have reviewed and ever had the pleasure of working with him."

    Chris H. [Google Review]
  • Devin just helped us with the sale of our house. He was on top of everything! He followed up when we needed him to and had additional information when asked. If I emailed or called him, I always got a quick response back. I would definitely recommend him for any real estate needs.

    J.S. [Yelp review]
  • "... He gave us very helpful information and advice when we submitted the offer. He was very helpful during the escrow processing. He has all the documents ready, keep us updated, and follow up on several things with the seller. We did not have to worry about a thing. He was taking care of everything for us... "

    Nancy W. [Yelp review]
  • "... After talking with him, it was clear that his goal was to help us with our situation in the least expensive way. He was very professional in his dealings and was clear about costs and fees upfront. There was no pressure to sign any contracts or retainers. We will always go back to him for any of our legal real estate work."

    Rohan G. [Yelp review]
  • "Careful what you ask for, you just might get it"

    That was an old saying my Lt used to tell me. I wanted someone with Experience, Compassion and most important...Intelligence. That's exactly what I got from Mr Lucas. I would strongly recommend his services, Mr Lucas speaks loudly and carries a Big Stick..He's the REAL DEAL. Highly Recommended.

    Thank you for Everything.

    Jose V. [Yelp review]
  • "Devin was kind enough to take my call today and answer a couple of quick questions regarding Service animals and tenant law. I found him to be very knowledgeable, easy to talk with and understand. He was able to answer my questions quickly. I will definitely be looking Devin up from here forward when it comes to real estate related contracts, etc."

    David T. [Yelp review]
  • Devin and Courtney helped us list and rent out our home, and manage our property. We couldn't have had a better experience. Both are extremely detail oriented and knowledgable which make our lives easier. Devin has been very thorough in explaining our different options. Courtney is so on top of it; her follow-through has exceeded our expectations. They include us in all decisions regarding our property, which is so reassuring to be in the loop.

    Cat R. [Yelp review]
  • "... Devin was very knowledgeable, professional and honest during our phone conversation and also very patient with someone who is just starting to learn this business. In regards to the lease agreement, he was very prompt in delivering the requested documents and made sure to include everything we had discussed..."

    Bethany B. [Yelp review]

    Joe C. [Yelp review]
  • "My first call for any and everything real estate and/or legal related is Devin R Lucas. Devin has provided both business and personal counsel on a number of issues for me. I have repeatedly utilized Devin's services as he has quickly and efficiently addressed legal issues for me, is easily accessible, & extremely professional. At the end of the day, Devin is someone you definitely want on your team, whether it be in the real estate or legal arena."

    Mark D. [Yelp review]
  • "We thought we could buy a house without an agent. Let's just we would be homeless if we hadn't contacted Devin! AMAZING! He knows everything about everything! He was super on top of everything in the whole home buying process and even continued to work for us in the hospital after his baby was born!! You could ask for a more knowledgeable, dedicated team to represent you on a very big deal. See for yourself. You will immediately feel the difference between Devin and other agents. He simply is the best!"

    Libby D. [Yelp review]
  • "... He is a rare find when it comes to attorneys. He is prompt, fair, professional and understands the value of a dollar. Most of all I trust him, which is not something I have much of when it comes to the Real Estate side of the world. I would recommend Devin absolutely to anyone who is smart enough to work with him."

    Rachel F. [Google Review]
  • "...He was extremely professional, ethical, and effective. During our initial consultation meeting lasting a little over an hour, he helped me understand my situation better than 10+ hours with another attorney (it might have helped that I'd spent the 10+ hours beforehand but those were very frustrating hours)..."
