“We appreciate that our home sale was given just as much attention as your bigger projects. We also leaned heavily on your expertise when dealing with a difficult buyer 's agent. We are grateful for your guidance and patience throughout the entire process. Your team is truly a class act and we look forward to our new home sale or purchase! ”

“We recently had the pleasure of using Marsha Kotlyar to sell our home. We couldn’t have made a better choice. She gave us an honest appraisal of our home, recommended a superb stager (the expense was worth every penny) and created a thorough marketing plan. She gave us weekly updates on showings and the market status and was a maestro in negotiations.”
- Jill & Chris D.
“Marsha recently helped my husband and I with our first home purchase and it was a smooth, exciting and very satisfying experience! We were interested in finding our home for quite some time before we were actually ready to purchase, and Marsha patiently, thoughtfully and respectfully showed us many houses over the course of 1-2 years. She talked to us at great lengths about what we wanted and why, where we wanted to be, what was important to us, and she also prompted us to think about things that were not on our mind such as yard space and school districts (I was pregnant at the time) and she helped us weigh the pros and cons of doing a renovation vs. turnkey. Marsha must have taken diligent internal notes because when she showed us the house we ultimately decided on, we knew it was perfect. The sale process was quick and seamless. We felt very confident with Marsha negotiating on our behalf and her instincts proved right when she said to keep pushing or to give in. We got the house for under the asking price and finalizing the paperwork was surprisingly painless. Now months after the purchase I still reach out to Marsha now and then to ask a question such as “Do you remember how old our roof is?” or “Can you forward that list of numbers for the utility companies again?” and she is always quick to respond and never makes me feel like I am burdening her time with my post-sale requests for information. From start to finish and beyond, Marsha was not only professional and extremely knowledgeable about the market, but she also was patient, enthusiastic and thoughtful. She really cares about her clients and she does a damn good job! We will work with Marsha for any future real estate needs and would recommend her to anyone.”

“The purchase of our home was a more complicated process than I anticipated because there were not a lot of options in Santa Barbara within our price range. Marsha' experience and extensive knowledge of the Santa Barbara real estate market, and connections proved to be incredibly helpful. She was able to show us houses before they hit the market. Marsha has strong interpersonal and communication skills that were critical when negotiating with banks and other realtors on our behalf. We ended up writing 5 offers until we purchased our home and every time she wrote an offer she impressed us with her ability to negotiate/communicate with the appropriate parties. Other qualities she posses that were instrumental in this process are her attention to details and instantaneous responsiveness. We were also impressed by Marsha's impeccable integrity and honesty. Initially, my husband and I had a hard time agreeing on which neighborhoods to live. One more time Marsha proved to be efficient. She listened and validated our concerns while trying to help us build consensus. I recommend Marsha's services without any hesitations.”
