I've been renting with Keith and Lambert LLC for almost 7 years now, and have never had a problem. The few issues I had with my apartment throughout the years were taken care of promptly and overall it has been a positive experience. I will definitely rent with Lambert Investments again in the future.

As a longtime Santa Monica family (since the 1930s) we have known and worked with Francyne and Carl through the years. When my mother passed away and our family decided to sell our apartment building, Francyne was the broker we turned to and it couldn’t have been a better choice. She took care of every detail she could on her own, was compassionate, kind, and incredibly thorough. Francyne kept me up-to-date every step of the way and was always available if I had a question. We went into escrow within two days. During the process she was respectful of all parties - seller, buyer, and tenants. We just closed, a bittersweet moment, and I couldn’t be more grateful for having had Francyne represent us.

Positive: Professionalism

We are developers in Southern California and rely on knowledgeable brokers frequently. Francyne Lambert is one of those brokers we rely on. We have worked with Francyne for many years through buys and sales and we are always pleased with her service.

Our latest rental investment purchase in Santa Monica went so smoothly due to her professionalism and expertise, we closed in under 2 weeks. We always turn to Francynce for the perfect exchange replacements.

A true professional, we look forward to working with Lambert Investments again.

Francyne Shapiro Lambert helped me sell an apartment building that had been in my family for years. The decision to sell was not an easy decision for me. Francyne was always patient with me and most importantly, she found the right buyer for my property. I am very happy.

Now two years later, I had Francyne sell my apartment building. She did an outstanding job as it was a complicated exchange with tons of moving parts. It took constant attention with so many companies and clients involved. She did it perfectly and all parties were pleased with the outcome. I would never have anyone else sell my property. You are in the best hands with someone who really wants the best for you. She truly cares.

My family has had a business relationship with Francyne for many years beginning with my Mom and now with my brother and I. She is a fantastic person who honestly cares about her clients and always looks for their best interests. I think of Francyne as a friend who is always available if I need help or have a question. I’d never even think about using anyone else when you know the best.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Everything good and wonderful about Francyne Lambert and Lambert Investments has already been written except this: In a tough business in a tough world, Francyne protected me and my property with authenticity, integrity, and a basic decency that vaults her into another category.

We had a commercial piece of property to sell, that my husband had inherited with numerous problems. Francyne was an absolute joy to work with. She’s professional, very responsive to questions, and will call you back very quickly. She never pushes you, just guides you and always lets you know that it’s your wishes she’s representing. Our escrow officer loved working with her too. We would not hesitate a second to use her again or refer her to anyone we know.

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness
I would highly recommend the Lambert Investment Group for acquiring or selling any commercial property. I have had the best professional experience using Francyne as our listing agent for the recent selling of our apartment building.

Francyne was always responsive and kept in touch with us when we were first contemplating a sell. She rightfully waited for us - to led us to the perfect time and handled the transactions with care and thoughtfulness.

 by Norman Nadel

Francyne transacted the sale of a building for our family. She apprised and advised us of every development along the way. She was tenacious in her representation and relentless in her attention to detail. I enthusiastically endorse her skills and commitment to her clients.

 by Jeff Nadel

Both Francyne and Carl were extremely helpful in this transaction, and went over and above regular representation. We have used them before, and will most certainly use them in future transactions.
We felt "very taken care of," and their concern for our welfare throughout!

 by Justin Levine

Francyne has helped my family over the last 30 years with dozens of Real Estate deals, recommended!

 by Jeff Nadel

Had a "must purchase" tax situation and enrolled Lambert Investment to help. Francyne and Carl both helped out immensely and resolved the main problem, and some other thorny issues that later arose as well. I recommend them, highly and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Francyne and Carl represented me in the purchase of a duplex in the Marina del Rey area. Their thorough knowledge of the market values, purchase process, documentation, financing and rent control statutes was very helpful and valuable throughout the purchase. Even after closing, they continued to be a resource for information or advice whenever I needed it. Many in this industry do not go the extra mile for their clients, but Carl and Francyne have gone above and beyond every time I have asked something from them.

Lambert Investment is a leader in the commercial/residential realty field. I have had numerous contacts with Francyne Shapiro-Lambert and have found her to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of landlord/owner information. Her e-mail newsletter/updates are extremely helpful and share the latest in matters that concern property owners.

 by Elizabeth Forer

Lambert Investment Inc. is always so very helpful in everything they do. Professional, knowledgeable, organized. They have helped me with a wide variety of real estate issues.

 by Handicap Committee GBGC

As the surviving trustee and executor of my parents’ estate, I had the responsibility of selling two adjoining eleven unit apartment buildings located in Santa Monica, Ca. I do not live in the Los Angeles area and I spent approximately three months (April through June 2016) on the telephone talking to/interviewing Francyne and Carl Lambert (Lambert Investments Inc.) as well as representatives from one small and two large commercial real estate brokerages. My parents were absentee landlords and in my opinion the properties were poorly managed especially in light of the Santa Monica rent controlled environment. The issue became how to market an underperforming property to achieve the highest valuation. Francyne Lambert and Lambert Investments Inc. slowly but surely became my number one choice to sell/list these two apartment buildings in that Francyne convinced me that she would not simply rely on multiple listing services to market the properties, but would also utilize the contacts she has built up during the 30+ years she has been in the commercial real estate business in the Santa Monica and West Los Angeles areas and that she would personally explain to potential buyers that, in her opinion, the apartments had not been properly managed to maximize rents and that the apartments had a value in excess of their current gross rent multiplier. During this interview process it also became clear to me that Francyne was very organized, followed through on commitments and had the honesty and integrity that I demand in anyone representing me and my family members. I chose Lambert Investments list the apartment buildings and they certainly did not disappoint. Within a few days after listing the property Francyne presented an offer, above the appropriate original list price, from a very well qualified buyer. This buyer was cultivated by Francyne rather than from a multiple listing service. The close of escrow was somewhat complicated due to Trust-related issues and Francyne and Carl Lambert provided assistance in this area as well to facilitate the close of escrow in a timely manner.

In closing, I enthusiastically recommend Lambert Investments Inc. for the purchase and/or sale of commercial real estate properties. I feel strongly enough, in my opinion, to allow Lambert Investments Inc. to provide my cell phone number to any interested potential client(s).

Our family has owned and operated multi-family income properties in Santa Monica and west Los Angeles for over sixty years. Throughout that time-span we have worked with several west-side brokerage firms. But the marketplace today has no resemblance to what was. Many new challenges await both Buyers and Sellers, which is why we selected Francyne Lambert and Lambert Investments to represent our apartment building for sale. Francyne guided the marketing, contracts, buyers inspections and fussy tenants with aplomb and expertise. She possesses a level of patience and diplomacy I could never muster. I am a licensed Broker myself but I would simply not attempt to sell my property myself in this marketplace. Francyne and her team at Lambert Investments conducted the entire transaction as if the property were their own.

 by Margaret von Braun

I love Francyne. She is honest and very knowledgeable in commercial real estate.

 by Karl Soderbergh

I have worked with Francyne and Carl Lambert on numerous real estate transactions throughout West Los Angeles, Brentwood, Venice and Santa Monica. Their knowledge of the areas and markets is second to none and their experience speaks for itself. They are extremely professional in everything they do and are very pleasant people to be around. Their knowledge of the real estate industry is very impressive and I would never hesitate to recommend them to others. I look forward to, and would gladly work with them plenty of times again in the future.

Francyne Lambert sold a property to us in 2017 and at this time, continues to be involved and available to us in any way possible. She continues to share resources that are of great value to us and is indeed a true professional who is absolutely marvelous.

 by Greg Horwitz

We had the great fortune to work with Francyne. She has a great deal of experience with investment properties and extremely knowledgable with commercial property. We would definitely work with Francyne again in the future.

 by John Lautemann

Only have great things to say about Francyne and Carl. Never had an agent so attentive and communicative. They constantly keep in touch, make you aware of the market, their marketing efforts and ideas of how to maximize value. This personal touch and personal ethics are rare to find these days.

 by Jennifer Wilson

I have know Francyne and Carl Lambert for a very long time, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I decided to sell and list my two apartment buildings with them. Francyne is a true “Jewel of The Nile”. Both buildings were purchased by the same buyer and escrow was opened within 3 days of listing with sale prices at top, and above, asking. My wishes had truly been answered. As an owner of my buildings for more than 40 years, Francyne created a smooth change of ownership transition for me, and for my tenants. Francyne is a true professional, immensely knowledgeable of commercial real estate, attentive and communicative. I join others in their review of Francyne that her personal touch and personal ethics are rare to find these days. It was a true joy to work with a friend. I would not hesitate for a moment to work with her again!
