In the fall of 2010 my family hired Shorewood Realtors/Real Estate Agent Richard Aaron Klapper to list,show,sell my parents home. My parents bought this home in 1962 in the Redondo Beach/Hollywood Riviera of the South Bay in Los Angeles,California. My parents bought this home in 1962 for $28,000. My parents were career School teachers who taught in the South Bay for over 35 years.  At the end of 2010 they were aged and in bad health. They could no longer handle their own affairs and two of their children became Trustees to look after their interests and that of all their children i.e family living trust.
Richard Aaron Klapper was hired to sel the long time family home. this guy turned out to be a real Jack a*s !!
Most people when they hire a real estate company/agent expect them to List,Show and Sell their home. Period. They dont hire a real estate agent to mess with their personal family affairs !!!
Under the Flag of Shorewood Realtors. This is what Richard Aaron Klapper/Shorewood Realtors did. Services were horrible and the whole family minus one member hated him !!!
Heres what happened. Shorewood/Richard Aaron Klapper were lazy. Inadequately listed and showed the house. Under sold it by over $150,000 plus. Even in a poor housing market this area is high priced.The house should have sold for between $830,000 to $900,000. Shorewood/ Richard Aaron Klapper sold it for $730,000. The majority of the family did not want it sold.
This was only the start.
As The owner of the house lay dying in her bed after her husband passed away. Shorewood/Richard Aaron Klapper couldnt wait for her to die. He showed the house and had people walking through the house/her room as she was on her death bed. This is no lie !!!
After the owner passed away. Their was a family trust. Richard Aaron Klapper then lied to the family members and told them if,"They vacated the house. they would be paid in three days". This was July of 2011. As of May 18,2012 Not one family member has been paid full share of the trust from proceeds of the sale of the house. In June of 2011  Richard Aaron Klapper proceeded to agree with a Contractors lien put against the family home. To get the lien released. Escrow instructions were given. The lien was lifted and the house sale was finalized. Richard Aaron Klapper then went down to the Escrow company and was involved in changing the Escrow instructions to now not pay the contractors lien he agreed to pay!!! Richard Aaron Klapper tried but failed to get members of the family disinherited for Contesting the no contest clause of the family Trust. Worse yet.
Their was a family meeting in June of 2011 that, effectively settled the trust and funds from the house. Richard Aaron Klapper then got the trust attorney at the time fired and got his friend a Trust Attorney named Matthew Yu esq. Hired to administrate the family Trust !!! Richard Aaron Klapper friend  so far has bilked the Family trust for $30,000 in fees just up to December of 2011 !!!! The Trust is no where close to being settled a year later and Richard Aaron Klappers personal attorney friend is the administrator of the trust  
Currently charging this small trust up the Whazzuula. Two long time teachers had their family dream home Undersold and their childrens personal business affairs extremely messed over. The family beneficarys cant afford a attorney and Richard Aaron Klappers attorney friend has their money to fight them with !!! This aatorney friedn of Klappers appears to be after all the funds in the Family trust for his so called legal fees.
This is far outside the realm of what people hire a Real Estate Agent/Realtor to do.
Shorewood Realtors has been notified and yet to respond? The lesson here is this. Dont hire this Shorewood Realtors/Agent Richard Aaron Klapper unless you want services outside the scope of a real estate agent /company. Dont hire them if you want your home sold at the best price, Dont hire them if you Dont want to be lied to !!! Dont hire them unless you want your personal life and finances affected outside the Sales of the property. Beware.

Escrow Instructions were changed ! Botched Sale I begged to try to Stop !!

AUTHOR: Clark - ()

From Clark Hagins

SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 : 

 

We agreed at our Parent's Attorney's office ( Trust Attorney Theodore Hanasono Torrance Ca ) in June of 2011 to a set of particulars that were not met. The Sole "Trustee" Mary Hagins Lynskey agreed with her family and two attorneys to certain items that were all agreed to by all parties. Realtor Aaron Klapper, A Company called Brighton Escrow, and Mary Hagins Lynskey then changed the agreed upon Escrow instructions illegally after the fact ,..and then sold the home and 7 beneficiary parties DID NOT recieve their monies as agreed ,..infact no monies were paid out until December of 2012 'AFTER' the incredible stress of this contributed to the death of my BROTHER PAUL B. HAGINS ,.... YES, I PARTIALLY BLAME KLAPPER FOR THIS ( as well as Attorney Ted Hanasono, Mary and Glen Lynskey, and Attorney Mathew Yu also of TORRANCE CALIFORNIA ) THIS WHOLE THING WAS BOTCHED ,..AND IT COST ME and my family Great stress

 

Had they not changed Escrow, NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED AND WE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED OUR MONIES JULY 2011 ! I FOUGHT LIKE CRAZY TO STOP THE SALE OF THIS HOUSE !! 

My mother Jo Ann Hagins told me that sshe NEVER WANTED THE HOUSE AT 251 PASEO DE GRACIA SOLD !! AND MARY HAGINS-LYNSKEY KNEW THAT !! SHE WAS JUST DESPERATE FOR MONEY AT THE TIME !! 

WE ALSO FOUND OUT LATER THAT MARY HAGINS LYNSKEY WENT INTO A HOSPITAL ( THE TORRANCE TRANSITIONAL CARE CENTER ON MARICOPA STREET ) WHILE MY MOTHER JO ANN HAGINS WAS VERY SICK AND ON DRUGS AND HAD THE TRUST CHANGED IN THERE,..GIVING HER POWER OF ATTORNEY - I BLAME TED HANASONO FOR THIS !! AND I WILL SUE HIM !! MY SICK AND DYING MOTHER WAS IN NO CONDITION TO SIGN THAT DOCUMENT - A DOCUMENT THAT I WAS NEVER INFORMED OF !!! 

 

STILL,..I AGREE WITH MY BROTHER GEOFF ABOUT THIS KLAPPER CHARACTER,..HE CONTRIBUTED TO THE CHANGING OF ESCROW ILLEGALLY !! IN JULY 2011 ,..WHICH COST OUR FAMILY DEARLY !!  Klapper Should have balked at the sale of this home once he learned of the shenanigans going on with Mary Hagins Lynskey and Brighton Escrow ( Manhattan beach Ca ) ,...    

 

Klapper saw that we were all in distress and he knew my sister mary was a nut !! So too did Attorney Mathew Yu ( Torrance California ) ,...

 

Yes,... Klapper shouldn't have shown the house while my mother was sick and dying in there ,..THAT WAS ZERO CLASS !!

Disgruntled Beneficiary

AUTHOR: Aaron - ()

This report is 100% false.  I was hired by a trustee to sell a family property. The person who wrote this report is a beneficiary of the estate who is unhappy with the amount of his inheritance.  I have never met him before, he lives in a different state, and he doesn't even know my name (my name is Aaron Klapper, not "Richard" Aaron Klapper).

 

I have a longstanding, excellent reputation in my community and have hundreds of happy and appreciative clients.  I'd be happy to furnish a list of references along with their phone numbers upon request.

 

Additionally, I volunteer in my community, teach and mentor new professionals in my industry, and take a great deal of pride in providing excellent customer service.

 

I hope anyone reading this report can see it for what it is, a petulant rant, and I invite anyone with questions to contact me anytime.

 

Thank you for reading this response.
