"Carmela was just outstanding! I needed to sell my home, but my budget for properly presenting my home was minimal. Carmela was simply masterful at advising me on what absolutely had to be done, and what was less important to do. She (and her colleagues Jen and Susan from Longbow Studios) took matters in hand - literally - and not only organized my thinking about the process, but organized and helped clean my house! Not that this is a routine for Carmela, but she was very sensitive to my financial situation which made coping with the whole process so much easier. Carmela communicated with me every step of the way, and I completely trusted her to act on my behalf with the buyers and agents. My house sold in six days for $100K over the asking price! In addition to guiding me through the whole process of selling my house, Carmela helped me in my search for a new place to live! Carmela went the extra mile and I cannot express how much I appreciate her help and expertise. I would recommend her services to anyone. "
"I had no idea how much a realtor could help, until Bill Franzosa served as my agent, selling a house and land in the Santa Cruz Mountains in 2016. He answered each of my emails or calls within hours, if not minutes. Many complexities, from surveys and inspections to contractors and contracts, were handled by him with grace, experience, and respect for my situation. Since I could rarely come to the property itself, Bill Franzosa managed everything, and kept me well advised. Whether you're a buyer or seller, you won't get better hands-on service or more ease of mind than with Bill Franzosa."
"Though I can't speak beyond our experience with one of Thunderbird's sales agents, our feedback is nothing less than 5 out of 5 stars!
"I have nothing but wonderful comments for Dianna Glidden from Thunderbird Real Estate. She went above and beyond the call of duty as our agent when my husband and I recently purchased a mobile home in Live Oak. Diana was always accessible, and quickly returned my texts or phone messages whenever I had a question about a property or our escrow. Prior to our purchase she was happy to show me listings within a minute's notice of my phone call. During escrow Diana was extremely thorough with disseminating information to us, made phone calls on our behalf to the bank, researched information about the property, accompanied us to the title company, and prepared an organized binder for us with all the pertinent escrow/inspection reports/property information. In addition to being the consummate real estate professional, Diana has a delightful personality, and took an interest in my husband and I as individuals (not just as clients). She is the type of person one desires to remain friends with long after the escrow is completed. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent."
"We just bought our first home here in Santa Cruz, with the help of Moshe Vilozny at Thunderbird Real Estate. Moshe is aweome to work with- he's a Santa Cruz local and knows the area like the back of his hand. He came to open houses with us and helped us narrow down what we were looking for. When we did settle on a house we wanted to make an offer on, he was right there every step of the way. From reviewing inspection reports to making plans for future repairs, he had honest advice for everything."
"This review pertains to a real estate agent, Heidi Robinson, who is with this agency.
"We just completed our second real estate deal with David King at Thunderbird Real Estate, and I cannot say enough about Dave as a person and realtor. I met Dave King through a word-of-mouth recommendation in a conversation with a stranger at the beach. I was thinking of relocating my family to the Santa Cruz area and was told: "If you are thinking of moving here, you have to talk to Dave King." So I called him up, and the rest is history. In our first deal together, Dave sold us our family home in Capitola. He listened to my wife and me, sized up our family situation, and found us a beautiful house that has worked out great for all of us. Just recently, Dave again helped us with the purchase of an investment/income property near Moss Landing. He was extremely professional, and navigated some difficult personalities and situations with style and grace. So impressive. In my estimation, one of Dave's most impressive qualities or skills is his ability to read people. He is very adept at sizing up a situation, and coming up with an effective strategy to accomplish your goals. Another thing that I have noticed about Dave is that if there is work to be done, he does it NOW. The direct approach. He gets more done in one cell phone call that most seem to in a week. I have worked with several agents over the years and Dave is quite simply the best. It starts with his character. He is a high quality person. Dave cares about me and my family, really cares. He was a word of mouth recommendation to me, and now he is my personal recommendation to YOU. Call him. Or call me if you have questions. 831 291 0696. Sincerely, Dave Alexander."
"Steve Sugidono was recommended to me by a coworker. He was great in all aspects. There was one point in the purchase where things got a little dicey but he helped me through the the process. As a first time home purchaser buying a short sale condominium, I had a lot of questions. Steve was patient and explained things fully. I am now the happy owner of condominium. I highly recommend him."
"I so appreciate the wonderful service I received from Steve Sugidono. He was very enthusiastic and so helpful through the whole process of buying my new home. He was available to help me look at homes, and once we found the right one, he gave me great guidance and help though the process. You will be very, very happy if you choose him as your real estate agent - he is the best!!!"
