Just wanted to say thanks for a job well-done! As a new-be homeowner, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the
process. I really appreciated you guiding me through in such a clear and understandable way. We are so very happy
and can’t wait for you to come by and see the changes we’ve made to the place. Thanks Again!
We are happy to highlight the valuable service provided by Kathy and Marlene. My wife and I had
been planning our purchase for months but it wasn't until Kathy and Marlene came into the picture
that our house hunting found direction, became productive, and resulted in the right priced home in
our desired community and school district. They listened, provided honest and much needed
guidance, and encouraged us to see house after house in order to help us better understand the
current market. By the end of the process we were better informed and more confident than ever we
had found our perfect home. Upon opening escrow Kathy and Marlene transformed from house
hunters to closers by working closely with our lender and escrow to anticipate needs, manage
release of our contingencies, address concerns, and close escrow on time. We highly recommend
Kathy and Marlene because we feel so blessed to have found them and know a similar experience
could not be replicated without them. With keys in hand we say, "Thank you Kathy and Marlene!"
Kathy and Marlene’s professionalism and negotiation skills were vital in assisting me in finalizing a very lengthy and
complex purchase. Their experience and advise helped me stay on course during a difficult negotiations period. Her
realty services come with high marks, and I highly recommend them for your next sale/purchase.
Kathy Fontana and Marlene Mortimer are THE BEST Realtors in Ventura County. They were available, supportive
and encouraging from the beginning of my sale to the end of my buy. I got a great price for my condo in a decreasing
market thanks to their excellent selling plan. They took their time in explaining all the paper work, contracts and
options I had with the sale of my condo and the purchase of the new house, and I had a LOT of questions! They took
me out for hours looking for my new home, as I had some pretty strict criteria I had to have (school zone, square
footage, condition of the home, etc.). Then they worked tirelessly on a difficult out-of-state, bank-owned property that
I ultimately wanted to buy. They succeeded in not only getting my condo sold and closed on-time, but were a huge
reason the new home closed on-time, and in some cases doing the job of others to make it happen in perfect time. They
had excellent relationships with other important aspects of the sale/buy from financing company to carpet wholesalers.
I could not be happier or more satisfied, and would highly recommend this outstanding, professional Realtor team.
I really mean every word!!!!
Kathy Fontana did a great job helping us sell our home in Malibu. We lived in Hawaii at the time and she handled everything as though she was a member of the family. Excellent communication skills and follow through that you can trust, always up to speed and timely on all commitments to us. Honesty and integrity are her trademarks. I would recommend her services to anyone selling properties that wants peace of mind with representation you can count on.
My experience with Marlene and Kathy was tremendous. I was actually in a leased property (which they helped me find) when I started working with them and my finances were somewhat complicated and frankly I wasn't sure if I had sufficient funds to cover down payment, moving costs, etc. I looked at properties for one year with Kathy and Marlene and not only did they hang in there with me - they treated me like I was their only client. When I finally found the home I wanted they were wonderful to work with, handled everything for me and sailed through some bumps with the seller that I would not have seen or been aware of - I highly recommend Marlene and Kathy - they are not only a pleasure, they are extremely knowledgeable and responsive.
Truly a great "tag team" that helped me find a house within my budget, and in a prime area.
I found that Kathy and Marlene complement each other. For example, at one specific house I looked at, Kathy pointed out key items that I would have overlooked, while Marlene pointed out how the house already met some key features I had previously mentioned at a house I looked at earlier.
They really did make the extra effort to meet with me, even late some days or on Sundays. They were with me through the inspections and even helped me find additional inspectors.
They're a great pair, what I'd call a "classy" team. Sure, they turn you on to the online search systems so you can search yourself, but also do their best to find key homes that meet your criteria. Each week, they'd have a list of prospective homes for us to visit. They were very prompt in replying to my questions, and I did feel they were wanting to make sure I found a house I'd be happy with.
Kathy and Marlene did a great job selling my house. They were extremely professional and responsive, and my house sold in one day. It was a very smooth, effortless process, and in the real estate business that is very rare. I would highly recommend Kathy and Marlene. They are very knowledgeable, efficient, and get things done! They are also very friendly and personal. A great team to sell your house.
Our home sold in 2 1/2 days for over asking, what more can I say! The process was effortless! They took all the worries out of the endless reams of paperwork and helped us every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. Two wonderful women who really know the business and really care about their clients
Fantastic. Always available for our questions, concerns. Made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. Really made us feel like we had a true representative going to bat for us.
Kathy and Marlene are AMAZING!! They went above and beyond every step of the way. Could not have asked for a more exceptional home buying experience all because of the two of them. Just cannot say enough good things to do them justice.
