Your home is usually your most valuable asset, and it can be stressful trying to choose the right real estate agent to represent you during that process. Shane stood out to us as someone who had the necessary experience and know-how, but more important, the right attitude and personality to not only work with us, but with potential buyer’s agents. We were very pleased with the marketing aspect of our listing. The photography and presentation were on par with listings that we have seen for multi-million-dollar homes. It really helped the listing to “pop” and generate interest. While those things are very important, the main reason why we were so pleased to have Shane represent us, was his communication and availability. We always knew what the status of the listing was, and what we should expect at each step. Shane also made sure to let us know that he was glad to take care of small details for us as we were frantically trying to pack and move post sale. Do yourself a favor and set up a listing meeting with Shane, you will not regret it.
– Doug Shonk
Incredible! If we could give Shane more than 5 stars we would. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Shane on two listings over the past few years and wouldn’t consider using any other agent. Shane is friendly, professional, and thorough.He’s a fantastic communicator, always ready to answers any questions or concerns and keeps you continually updated. His honesty and integrity are apparent as well as his willingness to go “above and beyond” to make the entire process as stress-free as possible for his clients. We have complete trust in Shane and couldn’t have had better experiences. Thank you Shane for taking such good care of us.
– Melissa Graham
We have used Shane Haas as our trusted Realator for years. We just bought a new home, and he made the experience of buying a house seamless. His professionalism, attention to detail and follow up is exceptional. Day or night, he got back to us no mater what time of day. His loyalty and commitment to his clients is admirable. We couldn’t be happier. We are so grateful for Shane and his company. Know you are in good hands! A+, 10 stars! He’s the best! We wouldn’t use anyone else. Thank you Shane for helping make our dreams come true!!
– Julie Turnick
Highly recommend Shane Haas for your real estate needs! I had not purchased a new home in 37 years and Shane made the process easy to understand each step of the way. Shane also helped coordinate repairs and upgrades to my new home and is always available to answer questions that come up. Thank You Shane!!
– Nancy C.
I have known Shane for over 12 years. Shane and Nate sold my first home. Recently, I had to sell the home I grew up in. It was a difficult time for me and my family and Shane was very understanding and sympathetic. He would go out of his way to help out in any way he could. He is very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend Shane for buying or selling your home.
– Jackie Smith
I can’t recommend any other realtor more highly than Shane Haas. My husband and I have done several real estate transactions with him over the last 12 years and always been extremely pleased. When it comes to selling houses he has the magic touch! I suppose it also helps that he is very skilled, knowledgable, and patient. When we first met Shane in 2012 we had already had our home on the market for a very long time. Once our listing expired, we hired Shane and he had our house sold in a matter of days! Just last year he sold another home for us. To say he went above and beyond was an understatement. The home was a small ranch with multiple units on it. We were living out of state and he handled everything. He was boots on the ground with clean up at the ranch, dealing with tenants, inspections, repairman, etc. When the property was finally cleaned up and ready to go he stayed on the premises for every single showing and meticulously shared all of the details of the property with each and every agent and their clients. Through all this he stayed in constant communication with us and even helped us out with a purchase we were going through out of state. Shane is always willing to take time to discuss any issue and lend his expertise. We are happy to call him not only our realtor but also a friend, and at this point he is practically part of the family. It’s not easy to find a truly skilled realtor who you can trust to go to bat for you. My husband and I trust Shane fully and completely and highly recommend him to anyone It was going through a home purchase or sale.
– Krista Nicolina
Over the last ten years, Shane and I have worked together to sell 3 homes and purchase 2 homes. He also helped me find tenants when I was a landlord. He is super easy to work with and is very professional. When we sold our homes with Shane he did such a great job marketing and helping us know how to best get our home ready for market we sold all 3 homes within a week of listing. We also got top dollar for them. I cannot express enough how highly I recommend Shane to help you with all of your real estate needs.
– Stephanie Cahill
Wonderful experience. They are the team you want on your side whether you are buying or selling. Shane and Nate sold my parents’ home a number of years ago, so when it was time to sell our home, I called Shane. The home was sold in record time. However, what sets this team apart from the “herd” is the genuine caring. Shane is excellent at calming frazzled nerves and hand holding through out the process. He is honest and ethical and realistic. He delivers on every promise he makes. He has experience and a true insight into the market. He treats everyone with kindness and respect and everyone gets the same level of service and caring no matter what the value of your property is. You will never regret the decision if you choose this team to handle your real estate needs. I would give 10 stars if it were possible.
– Janet MacNeil
Shane/Aviara Real Estate was recommended to us by a resident in our Simi Valley gated community who had very positive experiences working with him to both sell and purchase homes. We did our due diligence and interviewed several realtors with many solid years of real estate experience, a clear understanding of how to navigate the ever-changing market, and had intimate knowledge of our neighborhood and surrounding areas. In the end, it was Shane’s warm personality, positive calm demeanor, evident people-skills, thoughtful/thorough marketing plan, and an obvious dedication/passion and attention to detail that resonated most with us and led us to select him to help us sell our home. Leaving our home of 22 years was a very emotional experience, and Shane handled all aspects of the process (including our anxious mood swings) with kid gloves. He aggressively marketed our home using state-of-the-art technology (videography, customized 3D virtual tours, and virtual staging as needed), drone aerial shots, and professional photos (that looked EXACTLY the same in person as in print). He is a work horse and didn’t leave a single stone unturned to make sure our home got the exposure it deserved. He jumped at every opportunity to show our home and always made himself available (even on weekends) to meet potential buyers at their convenience. He represented our home as if it was his own—and made everyone who walked through the front door feel welcome and comfortable. Behind the scenes Shane was a champ at always keeping the lines of communication open (he was available 24/7), guiding us every step of the way through the sale process (including navigating a turbulent market at a time of rising interest rates and a softening market), and constantly calming our nerves and assuring faith in the process. He never steered us wrong, and was equally as effective and calming to help us select the best buyer for our home (price and qualification) by fully explaining offers that were submitted. Shane’s full attention and dedication did not end with the sale of our home. Following the sale to the perfect buyer, Shane was in constant contact to offer moral support and help with anything we needed through the dreaded packing process and to ensure our move went smoothly. We have stayed in touch since putting down new roots out of the area, and he continues to go out of his way to check in, provide relevant follow-up info (i.e., tax information), and be available for whatever we may need. Our relationship with Shane felt more like ‘family’ then a business connection. Moving (buying or selling a home) ranks right at the top of the list as one of the most stressful experiences in life, and Shane was right there with us every step of the way—offering guidance and support to help ease/simplify associated tasks and emotions. Shane’s nearly 20 years of expert real estate knowledge and guidance, genuine care and kindness, and infinite patience and understanding make him an exceptional person and a valued, respected professional. Selling real estate is not just a job for Shane. He is also personally invested to go to any extreme to ensure fairness and complete satisfaction for all parties involved. THANK YOU SHANE—for all of your care and hard work and for making a lasting imprint on our lives.
– Judi Daleke
I have worked with Shane for many years now, in both personal and professional capacities. His attention to detail and responsiveness are second-to-none. But his empathy and kindness truly set him apart from others. It is a privilege to endorse Shane and to recommend his services to others.
– Jesse Cahill
Shane Haas helped us with our home search when we thought we wanted to move to the Thousand Oaks area. When we decided to focus our search in the San Fernando Valley, Shane was very flexible and took his the time to view properties with us to fit our busy work schedules. Shane guided us through the process by being patient and providing us with insights and guidance on properties we were interested in. After our purchase he provided us with a list of contacts that have come in very handy as we settle into our new home. We are so happy in our new home and feel grateful to have had the guidance and support for from Shane!
– Shirley Kadlecik
Shane Haas exceeded expectations throughout the entire buying process and was incredible through every stage of buying our home. He is an ally, friend, and advisor and helped us again navigate a difficult time to buy our second house! We felt like we were constantly “ahead of the curve” in every step of the process, which was entirely due to Shane’s thoroughness and dedication. We always knew Shane had us covered. We cannot imagine a better experience and cannot wait to refer more people moving forward. Hope to work with them again in future if life permits.
– Nilesh Jain
We were in great hands with Shane Haas as our listing agent. His knowledge and experience guided us through all aspects of the sale process end-to-end, and was extremely in touch with all market dynamics for our house sale positioning. He was also happy to assist in any way from preparing the home to managing showings, and he even went above and beyond taking care of even some personal items that helped us out with all the disruptions that selling a home can cause. Shane continues to check on us to date even after the sale and extremely responsive to any questions. I highly recommend Shane Haas without any reservations if you’re looking for an attentive, responsive, and extremely experienced agent.
– Terrence Alotta

– Kevin and Doris Gorski

– Sandra & Chris Fisher
Knowledgeable and professional through and through! Shane & Nate went above and beyond to support us throughout the entire process – from touring A LOT of homes to serving as an excellent advocate in negotiations up to closing. We absolutely recommend Shane and Nate!
– Anne & Brandon Fisher
When we decided the time had come to leave our beautiful tri-level home of many years in favor of a one-story, we went to Harimoto Haas. It could not have been a better choice. It was our wish to find a new home before selling our current one but soon learned one-story homes matching our criteria were very hard to find in our area. Shane Haas spent much time and attention learning about us and our preferences and then carefully selected only those properties that met our guidelines to show. His patient effort resulted in our complete satisfaction with our new home at an excellent price. Then we turned to the sale of our former home. Shane spent hours discovering any flaws that might impede the sale and more hours overseeing their correction. He guided us through pricing, negotiations and sales etiquette . Even better, just as with the purchase of our new home, he made dealing with the mountain of paperwork and procedures involved pain-free, thoroughly explaining each step. We were surprised and delighted with his steadfast attention and concern, always on call and always ready to answer questions or offer suggestions. In our experience, Harimoto Haas offers more than in-depth expertise. They provide a genuine caring for the satisfaction and comfort level of their clients and a willingness to go to any lengths to achieve that.
– Pat & Herb Jellander
Shane has assisted me twice in the sale and purchase of a home. He is very professional and knowledgeable regarding properties in the TO area. He is a person you can trust!
– Glenn Whitlock
I received a recommendation for Nate and Shane through a friend at work—they were the seller’s realtors on the house her family purchased. She also mentioned that they both lived in the area, and knew the market and neighborhood very well, which was a bonus. My friend said that of all the houses she had looked at, she felt that the one she bought was priced very fairly and competitively – something a really good realtor knows how to do. I worked mostly with Shane through the sale of my home, but feel both Shane and Nate are highly professional, warm, patient, trustworthy realtors who I would recommend in a heartbeat. n nAs mentioned, Shane was my main contact for the sale of my home. Throughout the process, I found that Shane creates warm working relationships and communicates well with all parties involved; he focuses on a collaborative approach, and is courteous, personable, and extremely professional. The sale of any home involves a huge amount of work far beyond the buyer-seller negotiation and final real estate deal – it involves anything from prep of the home, to professional pictures, to fair pricing, to marketing, to dealing with handymen and vendors. Shane was on top of the details and cheerfully went out of his way in every step, recommending solutions or simply lending a hand and helping when needed. Shane maintains a very cool head under pressure—and he helped me stay calm more than once during the process. He’s very good at staying on top of the details, but also in passing those details along in a very timely manner. I never felt out of touch with the process of the home sale, even after I moved away from the area before the deal was closed. n nI could not have been happier with the service and professionalism Shane and Nate exhibited during the sale of my home. I highly recommend Shane Haas and Nate Harimoto to anyone looking for agents who are personable, diplomatic, and tireless advocates. I’d give them double the amount of stars if I could.
– Melissa Martin
Shane Haas made our house hunting experience pleasant. He was always calm, collected, organized, thorough, never rushed us, always available to suit our schedules and very expertise in all obstacles we ran into when buying our new home.

– Carly & Kirk Tedeski

Three generations, 7 people and 3 dogs! We had a lot of very specific needs and plenty of opinions in our large family. Shane took the time to really get to know us, all of us.

– Charisse & Michael Lazarou

Shane called us immediately when I reached out to Nate who was out of town. We met Nate about 25 years ago when our daughters played basketball together. We were shown a number of rentals of our choosing. Shane made all of the arrangements promptly. Having known Nate and Shane for years, I had total confidence in Shane’s knowledge and experience in the Conejo Valley. Shane answered all of our questions, and gave us good advice when we asked. We are lucky to have their expertise and friendship.
– Connie & Bill Nesbitt
Shane represented us on the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home. His sound advice and guidance through the sales process was superb.

He is a relationship kind of guy which really fit well with me and my wife. Top notch!

– Ray Soo & Iris Miao
We always get trusted advice and information from Shane and Nate. Shane has helped us for more than 15 years over multiple transactions. He is not just an agent for a transaction. He cares about your long term goals and also the current needs. They both have been in the Thousand Oaks area for a long long time. They know lots of local professionals such as painters, handymen, roofers, and loan agents. They can give you a full 5 star service from end to end. They are quick and accurate too.
– Jerry Zhang
It was not an ideal situation for selling our house but Shane made me feel comfortable every step of the way. He was very professional, always available for any questions or concerns, easy to communicate with & very knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. Shane & Nate definitely have a client for life.
– Stephanie Cahill
We were glad to pick Shane to purchase our first house. We told him our requirements and preferences in the beginning and he used to schedule tours based on it. He also used to provide valuable information about the area and properties. It took us almost a year to buy the property and Shane was the most patient person throughout the process. So glad we picked him as our real estate agent and highly recommend him.
– Faysal & Aisha Siddiqui
Shane did a great job of communicating and was proactive through every stage of the transaction. He made it easy for me.

The home sold above asking price 24 hours after listing, and Shane was amazing at helping us through the entire process to close.
– Geoff & Dee Dee Galat
Not only are they excellent realtors, they are both fine, honest, and caring gentlemen. They both take one day a week to do volunteer work. Shane has sold two homes for me and one for my neighbor who I married. When we moved to SLO county, we had a realtor who was not very helpful. I was able to call Shane for his help. We highly recommend Shane and Nate.
– Steve Chernack
Our real estate experience with this team was flawless. Their knowledge and expertise in this field is exceptional. They go beyond their call of duty to make everything flow smoothly. We will definitely use them again in the future as we have in the past. We always recommend them if asked by friends. I can’t say enough about both, as professionals in their work and now friends.
– Claire & Mike Masters
From the day we interviewed you, to the day we closed, it was definitely a GREAT experience! We were most grateful that you both were always accessible, and always responded to our questions. When complying with the inspection findings, we were extremely pleased with the referrals you provided, versus those of the buyer, and we definitely benefited financially! We are forever friends!!
– Kathy & Bill Edmonds
We had a great experience with Shane in our first home purchase. He was extremely good at taking in all the requirements based on our family needs and always used to give his detailed feedback on each property we looked. There were so many instances where we as buyer we would like the property but he knew little details and warned us about those which we really appreciated. He is very patient and never tried to rush to any decision. Our search lasted 5 months. I would highly recommend Shane.
– Monali & Roshan Jain
Shane and Nate were both very honest and upfront in everything they did. They helped answer all our questions and kept us informed all along the way regarding the status of the sale. We really enjoyed working with them and appreciated that they even sent out a recap of the relevant financial information in time for the taxes! Much appreciated and can’t thank them enough.

He and Nate work very well together. They are both very pleasant and make a great team.
