For being a first-time home buyer, I was worried about the unknowns of the home buying process. Mark and his team were not only patient with my naive questions, but were able to educate me on what I should be looking for and asking.
The Alba Team was an amazing one-stop-shop for not only finding me the perfect starter home, but also writing up my loan. The simplicity in the largest purchase of my life was an amazing benefit.
Mark and his team took great care of me during the process. Jessica was always on top of new listings, sending them as soon as they were released to the MLS, while Mark & Ana took great care in supporting me at showings and negotiations.
Mark coached me through every process of my first home-buying experience from start to finish, keeping my best-interest in mind at all times.
Mark Alba, The Alba Team, has helped our family with our real estate needs for several years. My daughter purchased a nice home in Laurel Canyon, after she moved from a great rental in Los Angeles, he had located for her.
My other daughter got a great refinance loan on her property, through the lending side of his company.
We have purchased two homes from Mark. He sold our large home in San Antonio Heights, Upland in 1 day, with a 20 day escrow. The exposure through professional photos and detail, he put in our listing, was excellent. Looking to down-size, he found us a great location in a golf course community. We liked the property so much that we purchased another property, in the complex this year.
Mark was also instrumental in listing our first golf course purchase, for lease. It was rented immediately. Our tenants are great. They were screened and appreciate our rental... their new home.
His knowledge and experience within the real estate industry is vast. He's the original "one stop shop" for all real estate needs. His warm and caring personality, exudes calming confidence, in those sometimes stressful, negotiations.
Everyone knows how exhausting and frustrating home buying can be. While buying my family’s first home: I was in the final trimester of pregnancy with our daughter, my husband was overseas in Iraq, I was working full-time and I was truly clueless on what the process entailed. To say the least, I was stressed. Every time I opened an app to look at homes I felt overwhelmed. That’s when I decided I needed a realtor for guidance.
I, like many, had heard all of these horror stories about hidden costs and getting taken advantage of by realtors simply out to make a buck. I cannot begin to explain my relief when I met the representatives of The Alba Team. They went above and beyond to answer any and all questions. They helped me narrow my search to homes in the area and price range that would fit my family and even helped me navigate the ins and outs of buying a home with Power of Attorney.
I never went to a home without an escort from The Alba Team who was able to ask important questions that I hadn’t thought of. The process of buying was very smooth and I am happy to say that we were moved into our home before my husband was home from deployment and before my daughter arrived.
Circumstances changed for our family rather quickly as they tend to do in military families and we needed to relocate for work. Again, we called on The Alba Team. We had listings to look through that night! We had another straight forward experience and were able to discuss price negotiations openly with the team who ensured that we got the best deal possible both in selling and purchasing.
I cannot praise this team enough for their efficiency, reliability, and transparency. It truly felt like dealing with family. I have since referred them to numerous friends who have had comparable experiences. We are beyond grateful for these unique and kind individuals!
Thank you for getting us into our dream home, TWICE!

There are so many different options available when purchasing a home, but it is hard to know where to start when you have not been through the process before. Mark Alba and The Alba Team walked through both the mortgage process and the purchase process with my wife and I step by step, giving us peace of mind. We were able to get in contact with Mark whenever we had questions and didn't feel like we were just another transaction. Mark gave us updates on the process regularly so we were always in the loop on where the deal was at. The Alba Team took us to several listings, not pushing us into something simply so they could get a commission. Mark got us the best possible rate and more importantly established our trust through this process. There are so many big name real estate companies out there, but I would choose to work with The Alba Team over any of them. I highly recommend The Alba Team's real estate services for anyone looking to purchase a home, or modify their current rate. Thank you for all of your help Mark, we will be using your services for our future real estate needs.
Working with Mr. Alba has been a joy. He has been helping us for years and has been wonderful to my whole family (even my children enjoy his company). Mr. Alba is very kind, personable, and considerate. He has gone above and beyond to help us throughout the years. He has a quick turn around time when I am trying to contact him with a question and can easily be reached by phone or email. He led my husband and I in the right direction and was a tremendous help which allowed us to purchase our first home. He has also helped both us as well as my In-laws with a refinance on our homes and saved us money, which who doesn’t want to save money???? Unfortunately, I’ve experienced health issues and he even calls to check up on me every now and then. He has been a true blessing to our family. I look forward to working with him for years to come and continue to refer him to my family and friends
Alba Realty has been our Realtor for many years through purchasing, selling and the refinancing of our homes. We have been very pleased with the professionalism, attitude and willingness to close our loans in a quick and efficient manner. Mark Alba is very passionate about his clients and works very hard in getting “exactly” what you are looking for! We highly recommend “Alba Realty” to anyone in the market for any services they provide.
We are so grateful for the time and effort put into finding our dream home. With help from both Josh and Mark Alba, we had a great experience. I considered myself a professional because I searched twice a day on all the usual apps to find a home in my area to fall in love with - but that's where my expertise stopped. Mark had already helped us with a refinance on our old house, and now we were ready to move up to a larger home, and we knew we couldn't make a move without the help of the Alba Team. Things had to move quickly, since we had a vacation planned during the time our home would be in escrow. Josh and Mark handled everything and sent us documents to sign when necessary. We felt completely covered, even though we were out of state for most of the escrow time. We can't thank them enough for their professionalism and their friendship. I wake up every morning in my dream home and I have them to thank for acting quickly to get my previous home sold and this one purchased in the perfect time frame. Thanks the to the entire team!
