Jeanne is one of a handful of real estate agents I can recommend without hesitation. She has incomparable integrity and truly cares about her clients. She treats all buyers with equal respect and attention regardless of their price range. I’ve had multiple experiences with agents in addition to having been in the business in Los Angeles. If you’re an equestrian and looking for horse properties she’s the most knowledgeable agent in Santa Barbara County because she owns horses and has lived in the County for many years. She listens attentively and isn’t judgmental or impatient when a buyer changes his/her mind. She isn’t pushy or greedy. Jeanne spent a generous amount of time with me and I didn’t end up buying a property in Santa Barbara County. I’m enjoying a friendship with Jeanne. She’s a gem. Kate Wilson, N, California.
If there was ever a time when a five star rating was insufficient I believe this would apply to our experiences with "our" agent Jeanne Hollingsworth. Jeanne made herself available in every aspect of the buying process from initial research to closing and beyond. Our experience with MLS listings is that they do not encompass the entire range of properties that are on the market. What this means is that certain properties go unnoticed by many realtors. Jeanne not only took our word about non listed properties but went to those properties on her own accord immediately and shot both photos and videos and sent them to us right away. She did the research, made the necessary phone calls and spoke to all the parties involved to get as much information as possible. She was so available to do things of this nature that after working with her for several weeks we felt she was truly working only for us when in fact she had other clients that I am sure received the same treatment.
Our personal situation was quite complex as we resided in Milan, Italy during the buying process. Here is a list of what Jeanne did for us so that you can determine on your own just how wonderful she is:
1. Once the house was entirely vetted by herself she made a trip to Milan to help with the final offer and the start of the escrow process.
2. As stated above, she immediately researched and reviewed the prospective houses and took narrative videos and pictures of every part of the house. Since we were not able to be there in person she gave us a sense of calm about this part of the process.
3. Jeanne worked diligently assuring the best possible price on the house that we finally purchased.
4. Jeanne is honest, sincere, deeply encouraging, attentive(called frequently for updates or just inquiring on how we were) but also forthright in her perspective on buying a house in the area. When something wasn't quite right or unclear she did her due diligence to get to the bottom of the issue giving us assurances at every step.
5. She set up appointments with landscape architects, assessment inspectors, gardeners, pest management investigators, bank lenders, etc(this was an REO bank owned property which carries its own set of issues) and was there to meet them and follow through with their reporting.
In short, Jeanne is a buyers agent and if you're looking for someone who truly works for you on a personal and professional manner you need not look any further.
Jeanne is smart, professional, energetic and willing to think outside the box. Her market study to help determine selling price was helpful, and then she suggested and initiated several steps to help present my property in a most favorable way. The ideas to dress up a few things, order a pre inspection and stage a portion of the living areas helped to significantly increase the desirability of the property. The photography, drone video, and brochure were very professionally done, and eye catching. The results were considerably potential buyer traffic. In the three months between listing and sales, she provide me with wise counsel in considering and evaluating multiple offers.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to Jeanne for helping us purchase our home in Solvang. Because of her valuable expertise, knowledge of the area and connections in the industry we were able to purchase a home quickly without waiting for years. Thank you very much Jeanne for your guidance and hard work! You're the best!
We are so excited about our new place! Jeanne is truly a buyer's agent and was so supportive before, during and after our purchase. We had a list of unique must-haves and she fulfilled all of them and more. We feel very fortunate that we met Jeanne and worked with her. She was always available and we felt comfortable throughout a tricky short sale process. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a new place. She is a great realtor and a has become a wonderful friend.
Jeanne has done it all for us, for our neighbors, for our friends, and for our family members with caring professionalism. Not only are her communication skills considerable, but we have been especially impressed by her aplomb during those more complicated and difficult types of real estate transactions, both domestic and international. She's a delight to work with and has a special gift for seeing the possibilities that are invisible to most of us. We enthusiastically recommend Jeanne to you for all of your real estate needs, from the simple to the complex.
Jeanne responded instantly when I told her that I was interested in a For Sale property. After skillfully presenting my offer, she proceeded to arrange for property inspections, repair follow-up and other paperwork details. Escrow proceeded seamlessly and even closed ahead of schedule. In addition, everyone Jeanne introduced me to (escrow officer, inspectors, agents) were equally proficient and professional, which meant I had a great team working on my behalf.
Just loved working with Jeanne. I wouldn't have the house if is wasn't for her. Very thankful. She is great, and her experience shows in everything she advised. Would highly recommend her!
Jeanne was a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the area and attention to detail was exceptional. I would highly recommend her to help you and your family find or sell your home. She is a true professional. My family and I were truly blessed to have had her on our team.
