Honest reviews from local sellers
Thank you for all your hard work, patience and diligence it helping us both buy and sell. This was obviously a big deal for us and you handled everything (including our quirky ways) with real grace. We so appreciate you and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
I met Jonathan and before deciding to use his service he all ready gathered information on his own time for me to begin making decisions regarding the home. Jonathan Gilkeson went beyond what he had to do as a realtor helping the process I needed to accomplish closing the estate. He communicated quickly and checked in often to make sure I understood everything I was signing and needed to do. Even after the sale of the home, he was and is there to help with any follow up on the house. His honesty and integrity is worthy of excellent reviews. I recommend anyone needing a realtor to meet Jonathan Gilkeson as he made my selling experience the easiest and most pleasant possible.
We were very impressed with the professionalism of the Zia team. They provided candid and very accurate advice about the local market and our very eclectic neighborhood. They were also very quick in responding to unexpected issues along the way. They created a marketing strategy that brought buys to our listing right away. Over all, these folks were great to work with and they made a complex process much easier for us. We are very pleased with the rapid sale of our home.
Thanks for your outstanding work in obtaining an early sale of the above property and at a price that far exceeded my client’s expectations. From the beginning of your representation, I was impressed with your knowledge of handling Trust Estate real property sales and your professionalism in turning around what had been a frustrating experience in my client’s dealing with a prior broker. When I have the opportunity of referring clients for future marketing and sale of real property in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, I will do so with confidence that you are the best of the best.
