After buying and selling a house in 4 states, including California, we were initially reluctant to buy a vacation home at Sea Ranch. But we had fallen in love with the area and decided to talk with a realtor. Lucky for us we selected Diane and Joan! They are smart and skilled professionals that know Sea Ranch real estate well. And they are highly alert to the human psyche involved with such a large and emotional purchase. Diane immediately found the perfect house for us, but negotiations were tricky. A previous offer had fallen through - with more offers on the way, we had to move quickly. They handled the mountain of required paperwork with ease, developed an offer that made us unique, secured a loan officer that pre-qualified us, and wrote a heart-felt letter to the seller that represented us so well - all in one weekend!! And they continued this amazing customer service throughout the escrow period, handling paperwork with us electronically since we lived outside of the area. Diane's background in psychology and Joan's amazing ability to connect with people make this team unbeatable. My husband and I have worked with a lot of realtors, but these two are extraordinary; they actually made buying a house in CA easy - something we previously thought impossible! The best part is....we love this house so much, think Sea Ranch is heaven on earth, and are so grateful to have made this leap. Our tip for others - get this good, competent team on your side!
