Amy was amazing!! She helped me buy my very first home. If you need someone that knows the area and is a joy to be around you have to choose her to help you buy your home. She also got me a ton of credits here and there that helped me save thousands of dollars!! Highly recommend. -Kristen

Amy was a pure delight - well informed about the type and availability of the condo we were targeting. She found us a gem and was thoroughly professional and helpful in the process. Amy guided through what is normally a myriad of disclosures and documents making sense of them. She was very responsive with our questions and ideas and explained any and all alternative suggestions. -O.H.

"Amy and Kristin were the very best of any Realtors I have ever worked with. They were extremely helpful explaining all the steps one must do to sell a property in California. They worked with our Realtor in Arizona to make the purchase and move smooth and organized. I can’t say enough, these two gals are fantastic!" -Barbara M.

Five Stars - Amy was fantastic and always went out of her way to make sure my needs were met.

Amy & Kristin were both extremely helpful in taking us through the whole process from start to finish. They were both very knowledgeable and up on all the latest information to help sell our home. They both helped in getting us market ready and we were able to sell the home within 15 days. We are very appreciative and happy with the services provided.

Amy & Kristin were knowledgeable, responsive and patient. We never felt rushed into making a decision until we found just the right property. They went above and beyond to make our home purchase perfect. Thank you!

Amy and Kristin combine compassion, ethics, integrity, technology, and enthusiasm unlike any other team in Santa Barbara. Their energy and positive attitude is contagious! They offer creative, up to the minute marketing techniques with genuine care and compassion for their clients. You could not be in better hands than with the two of them.

Kristin and Amy sold my house during a pandemic. That should be enough said! We listed my property 3 days before the "first" California shut-down and therefore were unable to host a single traditional open house. Leave it to Amy and Kristin to start innovating! They were the first realtors in town to start advertising virtual open houses, and they made it clear that COVID was not going to slow them down. Very innovative, motivated, and friendly realtors. Highly recommended.

Amy and Kristin were spectacular guides to buying a home. They know the market and provided specific targeted advice to my situation. They asked good questions. They were impossibly responsive. They provided really creative counsel, letting me know about neighborhoods that were new to me. They participated in the Coastal Housing Partnership, which gave me substantial financial assistance. I couldn't have been happier with them. They are so smart, and so tailored to your needs - and such utterly delightful people. Highest possible recommendation. Use Kristin and Amy!

"A big thank you to Amy Abbott for making our family’s house sale such a good experience. Considering the whole process was conducted under a COVID-19 pandemic, she had our back every step of the way. Communication was frequent and informative helping us to know where we were during each step of what often is a complicated process. The references she provided for work we needed to do were excellent. We highly recommend her!!!"

"Kristin and Amy are a fantastic team, not to mention both professional, warm, and knowledgeable. We purchased a home with them in the summer of 2020 in a very difficult market. They were attentive, communicative, and able to redirect with ease as our search and the market conditions evolved. We appreciated their can-do attitude and creativity in helping us view homes (even remotely!) and on many, many occasions we felt they went well above and beyond the call of duty for us. We are happy to recommend them and would work with them again if the chance or need arose!" C.L.V

I had the MOST AMAZING experience with Amy. She made an extremely stressful process an absolute breeze. She took care of everything, made phone calls and plans on my behalf so I barely needed to lift a finger. She is extremely quick with responses, and keeps your best interest at heart ALWAYS. I will be using her for anything I need from this point forward.

"Amy and Kristin are an amazing team. They helped us buy our first home during the pandemic (and during a time with extremely low inventory and high prices in the Santa Barbara area). I would highly recommend working with them for the following reasons. 1. They are incredibly responsive. Generally, I felt like they responded to our texts and emails within an hour, no matter what. It felt like we were getting VIP treatment but I think they just do this for everyone. The home buying process feels stressful and there are parts of it that move fast, so being able to be in constant contact with Kristin and Amy was a big help. 2. They will search high and low to find the home you are looking for. Ultimately, we bought a home 'off-market' through their searches as the 'regular' home market had such low stock. We feel like we still would not be homeowners if it hadn't been for their diligence in searching and for that we are so grateful! 3. They treated us like we were their best clients ever! I know that at the same time that we were house hunting, they were also helping a couple with a budget several million dollars above ours but we'd never know it for our much time, attention, and friendliness they gave us. In sum- you can't go wrong with Kristin and Amy!"

In a matter of 2 short months, we found, funded and closed on our dream second home and it's all thanks to the team work of Amy and Kristin. Because we live in Northern California a lot of the work and interaction was done remotely and Amy and Kristin made that process seamless. They were also great at navigating us through the new world of home buying during Covid.

Amy and Kristin are an excellent team with an extensive network in the Santa Barbara area. What was particularly impressive was when they didn't have a contact at the condominium complex we were targeting, they created a network in a short amount of time which lead to our off-market purchase and a property manager. Now that's next level proactiveness and we are beyond thrilled!

They also connected us to a fantastic SB mortgage broker, Christian Menard at Guaranteed Rates who worked directly with Amy and Kristin during the crucial times of negotiating offers and the closing process.

We had an outstanding experience. They're a well oiled team and we highly recommend Amy and Kristin for all your real estate needs.
