Read this if trying to buy or sell real estate I don’t know where to begin. We have many properties in many different markets. We have houses, condos, and commercial real estate and I can honestly say cammie stands out above and beyond all Realtors® I have ever worked with *15+ deals). She not only was the most honest Realtor® I have ever dealt with but her attention to detail and willingness to do anything to keep us happy and get a deal done is unheard of today. We can honestly call her a good friend now too. Here is the craziest part of this story that you won’t believe. Our condo purchase was her first sale ever. She has nowhere to go up from here. Do not hesitate in hiring her I promise.
We started working with Cammie when we were still living outside of Santa Barbara (and outside of the U.S.) and could not have asked for a better agent. From the start, Cammie was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating, touring houses with us on video, filming open houses, and staying on top of all of the options for houses to purchase and short-term rentals while we were not in town. Once we arrived, Cammie helped our family transition’s and was so much more than a real estate agent: she shared all of her local tips, introduced us to people, helped us move, and stayed enthusiastic as we visited many, many houses. Cammie is patient, kind, generous with her time and completely supportive of her clients. When we finally found a house we loved, Cammie was an expert negotiator and always pushed for our best interests. She went above and beyond during the negotiation, inspection and closing process and has continued to be an integral part of our decision-making about house renovations. We offer our strongest endorsement of Cammie as an agent and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to rent, buy, or a sell a home in Santa Barbara.
If you are thinking of selling, buying, or participating in a 1031 exchange, do yourself a favor and get Cammie on your side. We were just thinking of doing a 1031 exchange from a rental in San Jose to an exchange for a rental in Santa Barbara. We were so lucky to have been introduced to Cammie. She knew this exchange may be complicated since the Santa Barbara home would eventually be our forever home where we would retire. She knew we were not in a hurry and was so very patient during the 2 years we slowly transitioned into being very serious about the exchange. During that time, Cammie knew when to let us be in the driver seat with no pressure from her. When we were able to be more serious, she took the reins and guided us through all of the ups and downs and what-ifs and all of the questions. Cammie was 100% on our side. Her personality is so friendly and welcoming which actually made house hunting so fun. We really appreciated that she had taken the time to get to know us so well so her insight into properties was spot on. She taught us about the different neighborhoods, schools, resell values, etc. When we found the one, she took care of everything immediately. She knows the ins and outs of an "as is" sale. She knows what is reasonable and what to back away from. Again, she is so easy to work with. so professional and welcoming. We cannot wait to eventually move into the house she helped us find and buy. I want to thank her so much as she went above and beyond. So, even if it’s not time and you are just "thinking " about it, call her. You have nothing to lose. You will gain knowledge and insight and when the time is right, you'll gain an amazing Realtor®.
