Sue & Steve | Montecito
My husband and I have worked with Crysta Metzger for the past six years. During that time, she handled the rental of our home on Picacho Lane. She found and vetted three sets of tenants for us, verifying that they were suitable as renters and financially responsible individuals. She worked as a tactful and wise go-between when we as landlords needed something done on the house and she was equally diplomatic if the tenants had a problem that required our attention. When we decided to put the house on the market, she was knowledgeable and pro-active in presenting the property to prospective buyers. Once we had an interested party, she guided us through the selling process, which was a win-win for all of us.
Andrew Holt | Montecito
We researched and worked with several realtors to help us with our home search in Santa Barbara, and ultimately chose Crysta as we were super impressed with her knowledge and hustle. We felt like she took the time to understand our goals and identify which neighborhoods and home styles would be best for us. We felt like we were in great hands throughout the search, and were impressed by how much Crysta knows about homes in general (especially given that many homes we looked at needed some work). Crysta ultimately found us our dream home and made the entire process painless and stress-free. We'd highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again in the future (although not too soon – we love our house! :) ).

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
