Residential Testimonials

Tracey, Oneil and the Central Coast Properties team were fantastic to work with.  They made the sale of my rental property smoother than I could have imagined.  Tracey is very responsive and knowledgeable in the sale process.  We had a great experience from start to finish.  I would recommend Tracey and the CCP team to anyone buying or selling a home.

Central Coast Properties provided excellent representation during the sale of my property.  Tracey has a keen understanding of the Ventura County market which proved important as I was an out-of-town seller.  Above all, Tracey was an excellent communicator throughout the process.  The sale of real estate is complex.  Tracey has a knack for explaining things in a concise and logical way, which helped me feel comfortable and in control during the process.  Not only did Tracey navigate a successful sale in a short period of time, she was able to do so by balancing a desirable sales price with vetted and qualified buyers.  I’m confident Tracey and her team provided the best service and delivered the best possible outcome.  Anyone looking to sell or buy in Ventura County would benefit with CCP on their side.

I had no personal knowledge of Tracey when I chose her as our agent; I only knew she had successfully sold a house in our neighborhood. From the first phone call, I knew I was going to like her. She knows what she is doing, how to gauge the market and make wise decisions in selling a home. I had never sold a home and had no idea what to do. Tracey gave good advice and suggestions but was never pushy or forceful. We had very open and fluid communication, and I never had to chase her down. I went to her office one time, but every other time she came to my house with documents, information, or to answer questions. She managed all the painters, cleaners, gardeners and other workers. I even left the country for a month in the selling process and she handled everything! I would highly recommend Tracey to anyone selling a home. A friendly, capable, trustworthy friend-in-the-making agent to walk you through this process was incredible.

Thank you Tracey, and Central Coast Properties, for your years of management service and assisting us with the sale of Nick’s home. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will not hesitate to recommend your services to all our family and friends. If I have any future properties in the area, I will certainly give you a call. I wish you and Curtis well.

We feel very fortunate to have chosen the right person for this job.  We had two investment properties Tracey & Curtis were managing for us at the time.  We decided it was time to sell and move our properties to San Diego via the 1031 exchange.

Tracey had to find a way to sell 2 homes with tenants in them, one of which had recently signed a new lease.  On top of that, both properties had to close at about the same time to maximize the timeline for our exchange.

We brainstormed on different plans and strategies. Long story short, both closed within 2 weeks of each other, in time for our successful exchange.  The significance here, is the timeline of how everything came together.  Tracey had to do a lot of work in a short period of time getting the properties ready to sell, since we lived out of the area. The first home had an all cash offer in a couple of weeks and the second home listed had multiple offers in 2 days.

Whenever there was a challenge, Tracey had a great attitude, kept at it, and successfully closed both escrows in time for us to purchase our replacement property.

It was an amazing accomplishment. With her vast knowledge of the market and area, she understood what needed to be done, and devised a successful strategy to get both properties sold.  She screened the buyers to make sure we had the right (strong) buyers for this situation and she really dug in when there were challenges to get the job done.

Furthermore, Tracey’s communication skills and correspondence with our real estate team in San Diego was key in keeping everyone informed to execute our exchange.  I can't stress the importance of timelines in this scenario.

Tracey is a savvy veteran real estate agent who looks after her client’s best interest and demonstrates expertise and experience throughout the transaction process.  I give her the highest praises and recommendation.  Thank you, Tracey!

I have worked with several realtors and Tracey is, by far, the best! She negotiated on our behalf to sell our house for a great price in a reasonable amount of time. She was always available, highly communicative, and very helpful. I am extremely pleased with the way she handled our transaction. Tracey has my highest recommendation!

It was a pleasure to work with Curt & Tracey at Central Coast Properties. They don’t just show you a house, they help you see the neighborhood and its surroundings as well.  As a single woman, I appreciated the detailed explanation of the process since a lot had changed since I bought my first home 27 years ago. Best agents ever!!!

Dear Tracey:

I want to express my complete satisfaction in your handling the sale of our property.  As you know, this house was inherited from my mother, and I had little knowledge of what it looked like inside because I live outside the area.  You were absolutely terrific to work with in the sale of the house.  Here are some of the things I appreciated most in working with you:

You sent me several comps for housing in the area so that you and I could discuss pricing for home sale, and you were open with me if you thought a selling price would be too high or low.

You talked to me about what could be done to make the house more appealing to potential buyers.  This means that you were able to find reliable contractors to take care of anything that needed to be repaired.

You kept in touch with me on a very regular basis, sometimes daily, concerning work being done, potential buyers, and what was needed from me to proceed.

You were excellent in returning my phone calls, responding to emails, and answering any questions I had.

You helped me to understand the real estate language and what I needed to do in order to respond to multiple forms once a buyer was identified.

I could not be more pleased with your handling of the sale of the house.  I can only hope that you will be my agent in the future should I have any additional property to sell.

To the Professionals at CCP,

Kim and I want to thank you very much for the outstanding service you provided in selling our home.

From the start, you demonstrated a keen knowledge of the local market and how to position our home for sale.  Your home staging advice and props helped to make our home show very well, even with a family of four still living in it.  Thanks to your constant canvassing of the neighborhood we always knew how we compared to the competition.

We had plenty of showings and you were very available to make sure that all potential buyers could have a look.  The flyer and our web listings were outstanding with pictures that made the property look as large as possible.

Your handling of interested parties was great, we knew the story behind each, and your follow up was just right – never pushy.

When we had to move out of state prior to our sale, we knew that our property was in good hands, as your team took care of all the logistics while we were away.  Your property management business is a great compliment to your realty business, especially for situations like ours.

Also, your handling of the negotiations with our buyer was great, we ended up with a better deal than we expected.  During escrow you handled all the details for the inspection and repairs while we were 2,500 miles away.  We only needed to provide approvals rather than dig up vendors, and schedule the work which you took care of.

Overall the experience was fantastic, and we would recommend CCP to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in Ventura County.

My wife and I hired Curtis & Tracey Guntner with Central Coast Properties to find us a home in Camarillo, California. We also listed our previous home in Thousand Oaks, California with CCP. In a reasonable amount of time, they found a qualified buyer and our house was sold.

It should be noted that at the time we were looking for our present home, we were looking for a specific type of house in a specific condition. They never gave up on us and eventually found our present home.

As for selling our previous home, they held open houses, engaged a specialist in staging the home, developed a virtual tour of the house and continuously called people in the real estate business praising our home. They did find a qualified buyer and the house was sold at a fair market value.

It should also be noted that Curtis & Tracey Guntner and their team of professionals are diligent, energetic, professional, straight forward, and honest.

My wife and I would highly recommend Curtis & Tracey Guntner to anyone in need of a real estate agent.

William and Frances VarneyCamarillo, California

Thanks so much for all your work in selling my Ventura property. I know it wasn’t easy with me being out of state, but you guys did a great job of keeping me in the loop. Thanks for stepping in during a difficult move for me. I will always remember your kindness.

Lorraine ClarkAtlanta, Georgia

I had the pleasure of working with Curtis Guntner at Central Coast Properties for the past four years. Curtis and his wife Tracey facilitated the management of my property in Camarillo, California and did a stellar job. Subsequently, in this market they marketed and sold my home within one month.

The Guntners’ management of my property was exemplary.  They were professional, competent, and consistently went the extra mile. I never experienced one problem with them; they took care of everything for me efficiently and expeditiously, and I never worried about a thing; I trusted them with my money and was kept well informed with regard to the funds that were available and spent for maintenance. The paperwork was perfect and arrived each month in a timely fashion.

The sale of my house became necessary recently, and I was referred to many realtors in the Ventura County area.  I did not hesitate to hire Curtis and Tracy as my realtors expressly because of my experience with them as my property managers. Again, they took care of everything for me. I never had a moment’s hesitation to accept anything that Curtis ever told me. He is an honest realtor, a congenial, competent, professional and literally accommodated me around the world to get the job done.  I cannot say enough about this team of professional realtors except that I wish they were facilitating the purchase of my new home in Arizona.

I have been literally spoiled by Curtis at Central Coast and am now dealing with other realtors who pale in comparison. The sale of my house in Camarillo was completed with ease and perfection; Curtis explained all the documents to me and took me through the signing and initialing process.  I shall be forever grateful for Central Coast’s excellent service, kindnesses, and exhaustive patience with me. I would not hesitate to recommend Curtis and Tracey to anyone who is looking for the epitome representing the highest standards for customer service in their real estate or property management needs.

Susan BrewerSatisfied Customer, Nevada

With so many real estate professionals to choose from, I was grateful for an introduction and referral to Central Coast Properties from one of your previous clients, and I have no regrets in that selection. Both of you offered me concise market data, astute recommendations and outstanding service that was personalized while also highly professional. To be sure, when I have an additional need for professional representation in the sale or purchase of real estate, I will not hesitate to call upon Central Coast Properties. You guys really were a delight to work with in the sale of our Camarillo family home – it couldn’t have been a less stressful situation!

Jean SinatraValley Glen, California

Thank you so much Curtis & Tracey for your help in our first home purchase.  Your team is very dedicated to clients, and we know from experience, you are very successful in your profession.  Tracey was a wonderful realtor, advisor, and communicator.  She made sure we saw all possibilities for houses in our market.  We dealt with someone else first who did not care what we saw and seemed to want to rush us in our purchase.  Tracey and Curtis let us see everything from beautiful, to not so beautiful, and from high to low.  We were able to take our time in months to really determine what was out there without the pressure of buying.

Tracey was always willing and ready to go show the properties we were interested in whether it was a Sunday or a weeknight at 5 pm (the dinner hour).  She always asked our opinion of the house and was able to give us professional advice on price, square footage and residential comparables of the area.  Curtis was always there to help with the inspections, walk – thru, answer any questions, and also give his advice on pricing in addition to his professional thoughts as we went through inspections and walk thru.  They both were very responsive to our questions and willing to make sure our decisions were not rushed ones.

Thank you both very much for all your time and support in this process.  We will definitely be recommending you to our family and friends.  You are great realtors and friends.

Anthony and Amy SantosCamarillo, California

My wife Cheri and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the excellent work your organization has provided for the past five years. You have set the standards for what we look for when searching for a property management team.  I would like to specifically recognize Yvette Herrera for her outstanding response to not only our desires in the management of our Camarillo home but the response she provides to our tenants and their needs.  She is a perfect liaison between us as the landlord and them as the tenants.  We have truly been blessed by having the best tenants in our home for the past several years and Yvette is a special part of that relationship.  Our tenants have treated our property as if it were their own “home”.  The word “home” has such a deep meaning.  It goes far beyond a “house” which is merely a structure.  A “home” encompasses life, love and memories.  And it is Central Coast Properties that promotes your property as a “home” and not simply a house to rent.  And it is special people like Yvette and Curtis and the rest of the crew that make being long-distance landlords like my wife and myself sleep easier at night knowing we have  honest, committed, concerned people looking after one of our most substantial assets.  So again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Central Coast Properties for all you have done, all you are doing, and all you promise to do for us.  I know our business relationship will extend far beyond our ownership of this home.

Terry and Cheri CoxEnid, OK

Central Coast Properties has managed my rental property in Camarillo for more than five years.  I am grateful for the exemplary service they have provided -- overseeing repairs and maintenance, coordinating turnover of tenants, providing excellent record-keeping and reporting, and giving good advice regarding all aspects of property rental.  I have found the staff of Central Coast Properties to be accessible, friendly, helpful, and highly capable.  I can attest that Central Coast Properties offers the highest standards of professionalism in property management, and I can recommend them without reservation."

George GreggSanta Barbara, California

I began working with Curtis and Tracey Guntner five years ago when we purchased a home that eventually was to be our retirement home.  Obviously, we wanted great care taken of this home while it was a rental.  I found Curtis and Tracey and their staff very attentive to all the details necessary in maintaining this home.  They responded to questions in a very timely manner, and took care of any problems quickly and professionally.   That included sending pictures when appropriate, hiring qualified repairmen, and following up on any work done.

Earlier this year, we realized many things had changed regarding our retirement plans and decided to sell the home.  I worked very closely with Curtis and Tracey in preparing this home for sale.  They were superb.  They had very constructive and valuable suggestions regarding how to present our home to prospective buyers.  Curtis and Tracey went out of their way to make our home stand out among all the others, so that it would ‘glow’ from the minute it was seen from the street, right up to when the prospective buyer would walk through the front door, and would continue that ‘glow’ as the entire home was viewed.

Curtis and Tracey guided me throughout the endless process of paperwork, inspections, loan approvals, right through to the final closing.   I truly miss working with them, and cannot recommend them highly enough.

Kay TittmanState College, PA

We have been clients for eleven years and have found CCP’s staff to provide exemplary service.  We particularly appreciate their ability to keep our units rented and to help us command the appropriate rental prices.

They are expert in keeping our properties maintained, thanks to their relationships with the most reliable, responsive and cost effective service companies.

Their management reports are timely, and the structure of their reports is easy to understand.

Our tenants have found that Central Coast is easily available to them and quick to respond when necessary.

I would not hesitate to give Central Coast or anyone on their team the highest possible recommendation.
