“Fran has been my real estate ‘go to’ since the 1970s when she helped my family buy (and then later sell) our first house in the Palisades. Then in the ‘80s she did it again, finding us a great property in the Riviera that wasn’t even on the market and helping us get that one. And then AGAIN in 2011, she helped sell that one. So who else would I go to? Fran’s the best!" — Leonard S. Marks, M.D.
"I truly enjoyed the experience of working with Fran. No one knows the Palisades Riviera market better. She is the consummate professional in her dealings with both Buyers and Sellers and handles sticky situations with aplomb. Fran worked beautifully as part of our listing team and never let her ego get in the way of making the deal. She has represented me on both the Buyer's side and the Seller's side of two Pacific Palisades residences and the experience was seamless. I would recommend her with the utmost confidence." — Lorna Auerbach, Pres. / CEOAuerbach Realty Holdings
"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Fran Flanagan on countless real estate transactions over the last 30+ years. Her knowledge and expertise, as well as her dedication to work tirelessly for the interests of her clients, are without equal. Fran meets the highest standards of dedication and ethics. On the personal side, she is a warm and caring individual, and I recommend her without qualification to any buyer or seller who seeks the most involved, qualified and knowledgable agent available in the westside of Los Angeles." — Don Sherwood, real estate attorney
"I can’t sing the praises of Fran Flanagan enough. Fran has the perfect blend of experience, brains, charm and endless energy. She helped us sell our home seamlessly, rent a fabulous interim home and then put together a purchase in 10 days flat! We greatly benefited from her attention to detail and her negotiation skills during our transactions. Experience may be enough for some folks, but Fran is not one to rest on her laurels and keeps up with all current marketing strategies and social media. You can certainly tell that she loves what she does. She is “simply the best”! " — Jody Lippman
"Fran and I have worked together for almost a year now on the sale of the 301 Amalfi home in Santa Monica. I have worked (both as buyer and seller) with a number of real estate agents over the years, and from the beginning I felt that Fram was a consummate professional. Time as proven me right and I’m happy to report that Fran has been friendly, diligent, responsive, detail oriented and tenacious. If I had any more properties to sell, I would certainly turn them to Fran first. It has been a pleasure working with her, and the outcome has been most satisfactory. I look forward to a continuing friendly and social relationship with Fran—and another box of Fran’s chocolates." — Reuben Sandler
"Charm, experience, and professionalism. That describes Fran. She not only sold my beautiful Riviera home in record time, she helped me find a new place I love. Thank you, Fran." — Trish Sobul
"Fran Flanagan was a godsend in helping me to acquire a condo. She was tactful and respectful in reaching out to out-of-town owners who wanted to sell but were in the midst of a family crisis; she kept me in constant communication in the negotiations that followed; and her expertise, advice, and command of every detail involved were amazing. I would highly recommend Fran to anyone who wants the best realtor."
— Trish Sobul
"Fran is nothing short of amazing. She helped me navigate a tricky contingency situation, and went above and beyond in lining up inspectors and repairmen to get the house in shape. Without her, I don’t know if I could have gotten this done." - Steve Maeda
"Fran, you are amazing and have been so supportive and wonderful through the entire process. Cannot even imagine working with anyone else. You truly are the best!" — Carolyn
"I had the distinct pleasure to work with Fran on the sale of a residential property in the Palisades Riviera on behalf of the family trust of my beloved brother in law. Working with family trusts is never easy and is not only complicated with trust law, probate law, etc, but with the emotional aspects of family members as well. To say that Fran is a consummate professional is an understatement. She gently but firmly guided the family through the entire process, provided superb advice and negotiated brilliantly on our behalf. She anticipated some pretty complex issues and prepared us well. We could not be more pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend her…she is a pro’s pro!!! I would never consider anybody else when it comes to real estate in the Palisades." — Craig Meyer
