eXp Realty California - Northern / Central Valley Testimonials

We recently had the privilege of working with Eric to sell our home in El Dorado Hills.

Our home which was a 5 bedroom with 5000 sq ft and sat on an acre lot would need to be sold to a discerning buyer who understood that even at 1.275M, they were making a good investment. Eric went above and beyond during the entire process. This included meeting with inspectors, doing the background work, gathering supporting comps, understanding the key value and aspects of my specific neighborhood, and a total of nine open houses. I think I would say that the open houses alone were a show of commitment rarely seen in the efforts of most Real Estate agents. Most sellers generally agree that the commissions they have to pay rarely if ever equal the work put into the sale process by agents. Eric Haya separates himself here from his peers and I felt he earned every dollar of his commission. I also feel that my ability to realize my asking price was directly connected to his hard work. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking to sell their home and wants to work with someone in the Real Estate business who will actually work. David and Melanie Hilderbrand

David and Melanie Hilderbrand

I was buying my first house as a single person and to tell you the truth it was terrifying!

If I had not had Nancy to guide me through the daunting process I might have chickened out. I was at the entry level of the market (2 yrs. ago) and the properties at this price range moved so fast that I was getting left out of many deals. Nancy was determined to find me the right home, at the right price, in the right place. She worked very hard daily to get me into to see homes before anyone else and after looking and losing many homes we found my house! The process went so smoothly! I highly recommend Nancy, she makes you feel like you are her only client. She cares about you and your circumstances and never gives up!

Kelly Harder

Nancy did a great job for us.

I met her at an open house (we were coming from out of state) and she quickly tuned in to what we were looking for. She showed us quite a few homes and then we made a choice. She walked us through negotiations, the contract, and closing. She took care of everything- while I was flying in and out of the state I had total confidence in Nancy to take care of all of the details. I absolutely recommend Nancy as an awesome realtor and will use her again if we ever think of moving again (nooooo!)

Judy Kauffman

I'm 51 and regrettably, I've had to move a lot in the past 5 years.

. I've dealt w/ a lot of realtors. Nancy was by far, the best realtor who's ever represented me. She was honest, prompt, caring, considerate, smart, saavy, responsive, honest, empathetic, and above all, knowledgeable on real estate. if you use anyone other than her to represent you, you are making a mistake. just my opinion....but i am right.

steve busch

Nancy was absolutely fantastic.

We had been warned repeatedly how difficult and stressful a first-time home buying experience could be, but now we're through the process I can honestly say it wasn't nearly as bad as the warnings had suggested - thanks to Nancy. She was professional, helpful, on top of the whole process, very knowledgeable, and honest. If there were more than 5 stars, she'd get them.

Omar Thor Arason

We met Jennifer at an open house.

She offered to come by and give a free consultation about listing our house. She advised us about preparing to and putting our house up on the market. She helped us to sell our home and purchase a new home. She really helped us to find what both my husband and I were looking for in a home. We had a wonderful experience with her and she was very patient with us and extremely supportive throughout the entire process. We highly recommend her!

Bryan and Heather

Best Realtor ever!

Fought hard for us on both the selling and buying side and dealt with a difficult Listing Agent of our current home

Bryce and Kim Moore

Extremely informative on the VA loan process for my husband and myself.

Always returned my phone calls promptly. Plus she's nice and understands a young family needs.

Chad and Kammy B

Jen not only helped me sell my house for what we wanted but helped my family buy our new house.

She is the hardest most thoughtful realtor I know. She will actually listen to what you are looking for and what you want. Look no further Jen is the best of the best!

Brian and Tara Porter

She was great, very prompt even over holidays!

We submitted our bit day before Thanksgiving not expecting an answer until the following week, we had a response from Jen the day after Thanksgiving!

Vinny and Deanna V.

Jennifer Sandvos helped us get the exact house we wanted.

She listened to what we wanted in a house and found it for us. She went above and beyond negotiating to get us an awesome deal and answered all of our questions along the way.

Matt and Sierra Rea

My wife and I used the services of Jennifer Sandvos to list and sell our previous home and find and purchase our new home in 2015.

She is straight forward, responsive and very knowledgeable of the buying and selling process. Her negotiation skills are excellent as she was able to get us top dollar on our sale and extras on our purchase. Would I use her services again? - ABSOLUTELY! Do I refer friends to her? - ABSOLUTELY!

Bill Freeman

Jennifer was a pleasure to work with for our first home-buying experience!

She is on top of her game, and gets the job done behind the scenes so flawlessly. We were nervous about buying a home as relatives had warned us that it would be long, difficult, and stressful, but our experience was totally different with Jennifer leading the way for us! She's great!

Casey and Heather Markee

Jennifer handled the selling of our home and purchase of our new home like a pro!

She was so personable and our commonalities were amazingly on point, from twins and teens to our husbands line of work. This relationship was beyond destined!! Jennifer prepared us to show our home, scheduled appointments with rapid turn around, negotiated to our benefit, and stood by us the entire time. Through personal hardships and tragedies on both ends, communication remained a priority to Jennifer. I cannot feel more greatful for her knowledge to sell, positive attitude and honest feedback through buyer setbacks, and closing of the deal selling our home and getting us into our forever home. Not only did we close with a more than positive experience; but, I feel we made a friend for life! Thank you Jennifer!! A++ in my book! I'm forever thankful I chose to call and inquire on our new home!

Holly and Adam

I am so happy I found Jennifer to help me buy my first home!

She helped me every step of the way, she was very knowledgeable about everything and made the whole process so easy. We also closed on our home so fast, I was very impressed. Will definitely use her again in the future.

Victor and Priscila Erminpour

We would not have gotten our home if it was not for Jennifer!

She understood our needs and was very communicative. With some difficult issues that came up with our property she expertly navigated and negotiated to keep everything moving forward to closing!

Amy and Eli

Jennifer knows what her clients are looking for on a home.

She does her homework. She was very patient with where I wanted to be in my price range. She did not hesitate to give her opinion when it's asked for.

Stacy Valentin

Jennifer worked with us for months to find a house that worked for us in our budget and location .

She always looked at the brighter side of things and kept it realistic for what our dreams are versus what we could really do with the place . I’m happy to say we are now first time home owners , process was long but it was worth it in the end

Elizabeth and Joey Hernandez

Occasionally in our business we have the pleasure of working with consummate professionals who are diligent, conscientious, kind and courteous.

You are one of those Realtors. I hope we can work together again in the future.

Cari Hendricks

Nel, my sister referred you to us in the Bay area for our home purchase, and it was a pleasure working with you.

You handled all the details for us with expert professionalism. We’ll be referring you to others!

The Takai Family

Nel, we were pleased when we chose you to list and sell our home, and were amazed with your customer service, focus to details and great communication skills.

We were impressed with your anticipation of the current market and your advice on pricing. When we buy or sell again in the future, we will call you and will refer you to all we know who wants to buy or sell real estate.

The Garibaldi Family

Nel was very inspirational and motivating to us regarding buying a home.

She was always very positive and reassuring that things would work out for us. And they did!

Gail and Kevin Hicks

Nel gives great attention to detail.

She is a great Realtor. I will definitely use her expert services again, and refer other friends and family who may sell or buy a home.

Adele and Mike Glaviano

Thanks Nel for all you did selling my old house & helping find a new home here in Elk Grove.


Landy Welch

Nel is a great realtor!

She's on top of all that needs to be done to buy/sell a house. She returns calls/emails quickly!

Luanne Schnase

Nel constantly checked in on us.

She was on a quest to find our perfect home, and did! Nel was knowledgeable and there was nothing she could have done to improve the overall experience for us!

Ken and Liz Sutherland

My friend said you need to find that Realtor who SOLD the neighbor's house in a day!

Nel, I count myself lucky to have found you to represent me. You really have taken good care of me! You carefully explained each multiple offer and guided me to choose the best one for my profit. Also, thank you for referring me to another agent in another Southern California after my home SOLD! BOTH EXPERIENCES were awesome!

Candace Kenner

We can’t say enough great things about Nel.

The process was truly a blessing, and she was right there through it all. If you’re even thinking about selling or buying a house (she helped us with both), do yourself a favor and let her know. Thanks for everything Nel, We’re Blessed by you.

Wade and Michele Hughes

Chrysti was very professional and knowledgeable when she helped me refinance my home.

I have known her for many years and worked with her volunteering at our VFW Post in Antelope. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chrysti to others.

Garry Overby

Great agent - 11 Jun 2018 Cathy was great to work with.

Very reliable, timely and got the job done extremely well. I would highly recommend her.

Susan & Ron Martinez

Cathy is the BEST of the best!

- 20 Jun 2018 To say it simply... Cathy is AMAZING! When my Mother passed, I was left with the huge task of sorting and getting her home ready to sell. Unfortunately, living in Utah and the home being in California brought - many more challenges - than we 'ever' imagined. Cathy was with us - every step of the way! She was my 'go to' person for just about everything. Truly... I don't know what I would have done without her! She was so incredibly patient, kind and understanding beyond words. When we finally had the house cleaned and ready to show... we were 'completely astonished'... how fast Cathy went to work to have photos taken, have the open house and... present us with offers! Cathy is a hands-on, caring and EXTREMELY knowledgeable real estate professional. Again... to us, she is simply... the BEST of the best!

Jean Pierson

I am so pleased that Cathy Colton has handled my real estate transactions .

She has made a very difficult time much easier for me by being an in charge , informed, caring and business like person who made me feel secure about getting what I wanted. She was also considerate at all times. Always called to let me know what was happening and explained the many things I didn't understand. I always felt as if I was her only client and never rushed. Of course that was not the case, but it sure helped me relax. I would refer her to any one looking for a house or selling their home, I know they would be satisfied. She is fantastic and I have a very high regard for her.

Delores Laird

We truly appreciate your time showing us different homes in several areas.

We're so pleased we've picked you as our Realtor for our search finding the right home for us. Hopefully very soon we'll be able to move to your beautiful area. Please find us that perfect home for us. Thank you for your kindness and humor.

Steve and Loretta

Marvin was great to work with.

I didn't know anything about this area when my son and I first visited Roseville last Summer. Marvin took us all over Roseville and Rocklin, patiently showing us many houses as I learned the area and moved closer to making a decision about where I wanted to live and what kind of house I was most interested in. He never tried to push me into a purchase and was good at pointing out any issues that I should be aware of before making an offer. Marvin was very generous with his time and attention and did everything within his power to help me find a home that my son and I could be happy in. He went above and beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in this area.

Phyllis Dallas

We had an amazing experience using Marvin Pedersen as our Realtor.

We fell in love with a lot that he pointed out potential issues with, based on his experience. We later found out that the lot has been stuck in gov’t legal proceedings for the past two years with no end in sight, bullet dodged. He continued to work with us until we found our dream ranch property in the most picturesque setting. He never pressured us, but served as a wealth of information and experience. He answered all of our numerous questions without ever being annoyed. When you think of salesman, patience does not come to mind, but Marvin seemed invested in making sure we achieved our dream, because he must know the value of personal referrals. We plan to give him numerous ones, smart move. His experience with custom home building and construction gave us a leg up versus all of the other agents without that kind of background. He was always quick and attentive to our needs and helped us close a deal quickly. With his help we were able to buy the land at asking price even though there were multiple offers within 24hrs of the listing going live, in a hot market (SF Bay). I am convinced that his guidance is what helped us stand out and get the deal done. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, friendly agent who will work tirelessly for your dream, Marvin’s your guy. We give him our highest recommendation and tell all our friends about him.

Jeff and Angie

We Worked with Karla for about 2 years and she was very consistent with us but never pushy.

. She was very friendly along the process and even better she was very helpful with our young children who just loved her .. She was able to keep them occupied while we could look at the house .. Karla got us into a home with Sellers credit equity and extra repairs in a tough market .. We highly recommend her!!

Josh Anderson

I needed to jump on this property and Nadean jumped on it!

She got us in there quickly and just in time as the market has gone up!

Jason and Lauren

Nadean found us the perfect home for us with the most incredible view.

We love living here.

Bob and Marilyn Peterson

Nadean did what I ask her do.

I needed to get the home sold fast. She found just the right buyer to fit my circumstance.

Noah Bingglei

I initially met Lucy through a mutual hobby of playing cards.

I mentioned to Lucy that I was interested in purchasing a home and she set me up to get prequalified for the loan. Buying a home is a very intimate process and I was nervous because I was doing something I had never done before. Lucy was very kind and reassuring, and NEVER pressured me. We looked at several homes and ultimately found the right fit! I must commend Lucy; she stayed up late on a Thursday evening writing an offer with my Fiance and me. This turned out to be critical because the bank had several other offers on the home and we made it just in time. Also, I was starting a new job and enrolled in graduate school all while going through the home buying process. Having Lucy as my Realtor really made all the difference. I am looking forward to purchasing my next home with her.

Jessamyn Phillips

I am a retired real estate broker and demand a lot from my agents.

Lucy was always professional and knows her business. Our home was a VA mortgage, not always the easiest properties to close. Lucy stayed on track and closed the house in 30 days. Excellent service and there for you after the closing to help with those little things that pop up.

Bill Ash

I highly recommend Lucy if you are trying to buy a new home.

She is very knowledgeable and patient with us with every house we tried to look at. She also provides great inputs & suggestions without being intrusive with your own decisions. Two thumbs up!


Lucy is very helpful even after all the documentation has been filled out and signed.

I had a few things such as HOA and the title company that has miscommunication and she was there to help out with the process. She also will do research on areas within the ideal budget. Lucy will go the extra mile to help out and make you happy. The best thing to do is be honest and let her know if there is specific things that you do not like or are ok with but don't care for. She will sort out and organize the homes to best suit your needs. She also plans out a day when you are available to hit multiple houses and avoid the back and forth driving.

Brandon Winchell

Lucy became my agent over a year ago when I attempted to buy a home in Folsom.

My budget was on the low side for the area, but Lucy did not let this deter her from finding my son and I a home. After months of viewing different types of homes, New, modern, traditional, fixer uppers, etc..., Lucy found us the perfect home due to her wonderful ability to pick up on my likes and dislikes as well staying on top of all new listings and investigating all aspects of the home prior to her bringing then to my attention. Unfortunately, my financing fell through at the last minute and I was not able to buy the home. However, prior to canceling the contact, Lucy researched and directed me to all possible financing solutions. In June of this year, I was able to secure funding for a home, and I immediately contacted Lucy, and thanks to her outstanding professionalism, she found my son and I the perfect home in the exact area I wanted, and escrow was closed in under a month! Thank You, Lucy :-)

Allen is the ultimate professional. She knows the real estate business, she is personable, responsive and so easy to work with. If I called or had questions she made sure to get the information and assist with my concerns. I never worried about the process. I knew I was in capable hands. House sold and closed quickly.

Marlene Marino Brock

I VERY highly recommend Lucy Allen.

Lucy represented me in the sales of my home. You don't realize how important her experience is until you see her work. She is ethical, honest, no nonsense and straightforward. I appreciated that she communicated well with all parties so there were no surprises or loose ends. The transaction could not have gone more smoothly. Buyer, seller, and agents were all happy in the end. She's awesome...contact her.

Teresa Falkenstein

Working with Lucy Allen exceeded any of my expectations.

As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Lucy was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with my dad and I to determine what would be a good fit for us. She even recommended a lending agent in the area, which we ended up using and greatly appreciated. Lucy was willing to meet us late in the evening to view and put together the offer. She was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level even though we were on a tight time frame. I truly believe her expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Lucy.

Tanya Fanton

Lucy really gave us a lot of hands on attention throughout the whole process, I really feel that she went above and beyond to make sure our stressful situation was as smooth as possible.

We had a vacation planned in the middle of a rushed move and Lucy made sure that all of the inspections were done and even helped with arranging staging services.

Nathan McKelvey

Lucy helped my husband and me find a home in February of 2015.

Recently, our circumstances changed and we needed to sell the home we were living in, sell my husband's rental property, and then buy another home. This was all happening while my husband and I were working full time, I'm working on my doctorate, and life in general. Lucy was very supportive during this process and gave us step by step instructions of what we needed to do in order to achieve our desires. While we ended up having to move faster than we initially wanted, it was for the best. Our home sold quickly and for more than asking price. I would recommend Lucy to anyone who is in the process of selling and/or buying a home.

J. Phillips

I found Lucy through a friend that had recommended her when they bought their home.

Lucy was patient with me as it took me over a year to find and buy the home I wanted. She knew what I wanted and was always responsive to my requests. She really understands what you want and doesn't try to push homes at you that you aren't interested in. I'd highly recommend Lucy if you are looking for someone who knows her stuff and is friendly and knowledgeable.

Eric Kishi

Lucy was always on top of all of the negotiations.

She went above and beyond what was expected of her. If she did not know the answer she would find out for you and get back to you ASAP. I would highly recommend her services. She is one of the best realtors I have ever had.

Dr. K

Contact Lucy if you are looking for a true professional that will work with you through every step of the buying or selling process.

She has assisted our family several times and each transaction was handled with confidence and professionalism. She goes the extra mile to ensure that your home is ready to show at its absolute best by paying attention to even the smallest details. Lucy has integrity, pride, and a passion for making her clients happy. Thanks Lucy for all that you have done for our family.

Fatima Arvizo

We "lucked into" finding Lucy when we became interested in a home for which she was the listing agent.

That home did not entirely meet our needs, but from there she was our go to as we searched for water front property for a vacation spot/retirement home. Her knowledge and experience streamlined our search. Her expertise was instrumental in navigating the many road bumps in the process. Her negotiating skills and advice allowed us to zero in on a great value for a great property, and her diplomacy smoothed the way and kept everything and everyone on track. To top it off, her responsiveness to our needs, concerns and questions made us feel as though we were her only clients, which was far from the truth. Highly recommended.

Ingrid and Bill McCleary

“Pete Korn helped our home dreams come true!

Pete negotiated our offer with the sellers and worked with us on a long and complicated escrow. Our home construction loan had many unusual requirements and Pete always found a way to keep the deal moving forward. He had immense patience during the entire process and he always had our best interests at heart. Pete is honest, fair, and easy to work with. We highly recommend Pete for great results in your home buying and selling."

Steve and Michelle Tuggle

Julie was quick to find a buyer for my home.

She was always there to answer my calls, and my questions. We were able to close quickly and quite a bit more than my listing price! I was very pleased and recommend her to everyone! S. Deam

"I met Karla at the first condo I looked at and though I was not interested in that particular property, within a couple of days she found the perfect condo for us.

During the buying process, she always responded immediately to our every question, researched the tax history and very detailed information about the mello roos for this specific property. The purchase involved two HOAs and a rent back to the owner which added complexity to an already paperwork overload but she provided support throughout. She is also a very kind and caring woman who made a potentially stressful situation easier. I can confidently recommend Karla as an excellent agent."

Holly Merrick

Karla Jimenez has successfully sold two houses for me.

The first house was a challenge because it started out as a regular sale but transitioned into a probate sale. She did such an excellent job with this sale that I gave her the listing for my current house, which she aggressively marketed. The house just closed & I couldn't be happier. If I ever need a California agent, I will contact Karla Jimenez. She is the best!!!

Eva Koppin Smith

After dealing with what I view as inappropriate and unqualified agent/loan officer, I finally found Karla Jimenez.

She an excellent real estate agent, and very well qualified at what she does. From the beginning she sat with us, went over step by step of "her" selling home processes. She handed us a booklet from which she described every single detail of what to expect from her, and she from us. No hidden agendas here. She's gladly met with us several times, communicated effectively via email, text and telephone. If there's been a change, an issue or whatever, Karla has not failed to convey that to us IMMEDIATELY. I completely and fully recommend Karla 100% to anyone looking to purchase a home...we are very thankful to her professionalism and kind heart. Thank you Karla!! Alicia & Joe

Alicia Jacinto

Scott and Trena Thompson were top notch professionals in selling my Antelope condo.

Within three days on being on the market, we received a full priced offer. They answered all of my questions and helped us close escrow within 30 days. If you need help buying, selling or investing in the Sacramento region, Scott is the real estate broker to use! His knowledge of the area and market is based on his years of experience. I highly recommend them


Professional, on the task, best experiences, listed/sold a home, then found my new purchased home, Scott made a relocation painless, he is a top caliber professional, he has had, and will have my business.



Scott Thompson listed and sold my condo.

He worked very hard for me and I got a good price on my unit. I would recommend Scott to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a property.

Lisa Cole

Scott was very knowledgeable and considerate of our wants and needs for our first house.

He was always on time and kept us in the loop. He never made us feel rushed or pressured. He truly loves his job and is great at it. Till this day he still keeps in touch with us. Definitely recommend!!!

Kevin Campos

Scott was very professional throughout the entire process.

He was able to list, sell and obtain a contract on my home within 6 days. He also assisted my boyfriend and I with the purchase of a fabulous new home and we couldn't be happier! Scott was available anytime for any questions or concerns we had. Thanks Scott

Deborah Wilkenfeld

Colleen helped me find the perfect home for my young children and myself.

My children were present with me on most of the home tours while I was shopping for our home. She was very accommodating, professional, friendly, and most of all had amazing knowledge to share. This was the first time I was purchasing a home all by myself, and her knowledge and experience made the process very smooth and easy! She had fantastic recommendations when it came to writing offers which also made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. I ultimately found the perfect home for my family and we created many, many wonderful memories there. Thank you, Colleen, for your professional integrity, knowledge, and most of all, the friendship that developed from my home-shopping experience.

Julie B. 2013

Colleen was attentive to all of my wants and desires and found me many homes to choose from.

She guided me through my search with thoughtfulness and enthusiasm, ultimately finding my perfect home for me and with me.

Dani B. 2016

Colleen was excellent at communicating with the seller and sending information back and forth.

She was also very proactive in helping me chose a lender and staying up to date with the lender to mak e sure things progressed in a timely manner. She was very aware of the timing of all the deadlines throughout the process and kept things moving very efficiently. Colleen has been providing real estate service in the community for over 15 years and is a great choice for any buyer or seller, private home or commercial properties. I have several other friends who have also used Colleen's services and were very satisfied.
