About Us

Established in 2005, Ocean West Realty is a dba of Ocean West Lending, Inc and provides real estate and property management services to Orange County and the south west Inland Empire.

The company name Ocean West Realty, although simplistic in its formation, is a reflection of the broker. Teamwork is necessary while achieving an objective and is why the company is not named after the broker: Hacker Realty. Although that may have a unique ring to it, it's not about one person. When it comes to real estate and property management there are multiple professionals involved in the process.

Ocean West Realty has a team of professionals working both for and with the company to ensure a level of professionalism you would expect when dealing with large investments like real estate transactions.

We take pride in being professional and honorable as well as treating every client with respect.

"Rob Hacker is the most conscientious, diligent and professional property manager I have encountered. He assumed control of my property at a point where I had nowhere to turn. My tenants were not paying on time, were destroying my house and Rob very meticulously repaired my house, legally evicted my tenants and re-leased it.

Rob always keeps me informed, always provides sound advice and is genuinely interested in protecting my interest. It would be a lost opportunity not to sign on with Rob Hacker."

- Col. G. Reilly (US Army)
