-Jacquelyn Savani, Ph.D. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Berni Bernstein is Santa Barbara. She loves and is familiar with every part of it. When I was looking for a house to buy, she not only showed me homes, but also where I could find art, food, history, lovely architecture, and anything else I would need to make a life here. Once she understood the features I was looking for, she showed me a variety of homes with infinite patience and never rushed me to make a decision. While viewing a house, she let me know some of its features that I may not have noticed. She is a good negotiator in the sale; you can count on her to make sure all the details are accurate. And she is a friend as well."

-Dena ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

To Whom It May Concern: When my husband and I decided to sell our condo in Goleta, CA we were concerned about the logistics of listing, showing and selling our property since we actually live seven hours from Goleta. We immediately thought of Berni Bernstein who had years earlier helped us purchase the condo. From then on we didn’t have to worry.

Berni and her associates at Coastal Properties did it all for us. They were both professional and friendly. We always felt they were truly looking after our best interests. Working with our management company they contacted our tenant, prepped the condo for viewing even purchased some plants to spruce up the place for viewing.

Berni counseled us every step of the way advising us the best time to begin listing the condo given the sluggish housing market. We were thrilled when we got our first offer and finally sold the property in less than four months! We did not have to travel to Goleta during the sales proceedings. Berni took care of it all via e-mail, regular mail and telephone. After the closing she even sent us a CD with all the documents related to the sale for our records. Suffice to say, we were more than satisfied with the work Coastal Properties did on our behalf. We would have no qualms in recommending Coastal Properties to anyone contemplating purchasing or selling property in that area.

-Sincerely, RICARDO ORTEGA & MARY RANGEL-ORTEGA 429 E. Sherman Street, Calexico, CA 92231 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
