“They helped us along to find mortgage brokers that would help us with our individual needs.”

“We have been working with Pat and Steve for over ten years for all of our real estate needs(primary residence, income property and personal rentals). They are top notch, professional, non pushy, well respected in the community and with fellow agents. They have gotten us into properties the day they hit the market so in these competitive times we are able to be first in line to go into escrow if we choose to. They helped us along to find mortgage brokers that would help us with our individual needs. I am amazed at their knowledge of this area and what is on the market, what has sold, how much properties have sold for and what they could rent a property for. As far as I am concerned they are one stop shopping for all of your real estate needs. We just closed escrow on another property this month 5/13 and have another property of ours pocket listed and they are looking for a trade for us to buy into a different area. I have full confidence that they will get the job done.”

“I found them to be honest and sensitive, responsive and always available to answer my questions.”

“Pat Saraca & Steve assisted me in the purchase of a home in Montecito. Pat located just what I was looking for. I found them to be honest and sensitive, responsive and always available to answer my questions. They were thorough and showed me many properties. They were never pushy. They understood me and what I was looking for and coupled this with an intelligent and vigilant review of the market. The purchase was done from a distance but Pat made it all possible via phones and emails. I could not be happier with the result.”

“With multiple offers, they did an absolutely amazing job of getting our offer accepted by the sellers and ultimately the bank.”

“Pat & Stephen represented us in the purchase of a home in Montecito through a short sale. With multiple offers, they did an absolutely amazing job of getting our offer accepted by the sellers and ultimately the bank. We expected the process to be complicated, and I am sure it was, however they had the expertise to navigate the transaction and it appeared seamless to us. Once it closed, Steve promptly leased the property for us. Both Pat and Steve work with the utmost professionalism and have exceptional knowledge of real estate value and the transactional aspects. We will use them again and highly recommend them to buyers or sellers.”

“Their forward thinking helped remove any potential obstacles that would delay the transaction…”

“Pat and Stephen maintained momentum throughout the entire process. We began in March with the listing and by mid-May the transaction was completed. They worked diligently to give my condo the most exposure possible through regular open houses and realtor caravans. They managed all aspects of the transaction from dealing with the HOA to the escrow company. I feel they really were able to get me the best offer for my needs. Their forward thinking helped remove any potential obstacles that would delay the transaction and we were able to close in 22 days at a great price for both me(the seller) and the buyer.”

“They were highly professional and extremely helpful in our negotiations to acquire our home…”

“We couldn’t be happier with the professionalism of Pat and Stephen and the outstanding results they achieved for us. Pat and Stephen represented us on both the purchase of our home in and the sale of our condominium in Santa Barbara. They were highly professional and extremely helpful in our negotiations to acquire our home, arranging inspections and overseeing the entire escrow process. Even though it was the Christmas holiday season, Pat and Stephen worked with us on sprucing up our condo and arranging staging prior to the sale. Within about 45 days, they found a buyer for our unit at a very strong price and closed the sale. The buyers were thrilled to able to move in just before Christmas. We’ve been involved in commercial and residential real estate for 35 years, so we’ve worked with a lot of brokers. We couldn’t have asked for better service and results. They were amazing!”

They made what looked impossible seem so easy in retrospect. What great mentors you turned out to be! This would not have happened without your amazing knowledge and fortitude in the process. I was ready to throw in the towel many times but you both kept me on track. I cannot thank you enough or recommend you more highly. Fantastic job!”
