Our family occupied a wonderful home in Hope Ranch spanning 60 years and three generations. When the time came, upon the declining health of the patriarch, we needed to sell, or rent the unoccupied home. We wanted an agent that had a history of high-end properties and contacted John Sener, recommended by a director at Cottage Hospital.  We found John to be highly responsive and adept at the complicated high-end sales process, and his wife Linda very adept at assisting in styling the residence for optimum buyer appeal.  The result, the sale of the property within three months of listed asking price of 2,945,000.  The speed of the sale, the willingness to do what was necessary at all steps of the residential sales process speaks volumes of the special efforts that the Sener’s put forward in their effort to represent your property in the best possible manner.

“We were impressed by the way John kept us informed every step of the process of selling our home. John cared about us and actively listened to our needs and handled any problems immediately. Our  2 1/ year old son would ask where John was if he had not seen him that day!! So, I guess he stayed in touch! We have already recommended John to our family and friends.”

“He was referred to us by a friend, and also the Cottage Health Care System. John has a very thorough knowledge of real estate and also for the Santa Barbara area.  He helped us tremendously through the escrow. John stayed in touch with us through the entire transaction, and went beyond the all of duty.”

“We have purchased property with John before. He was attentive and available to us and very thorough in his explanations. He handled questions and issues with concern and efficiency. We would refer our friends and relatives to him. He is an excellent agent.”

“John represented us on the purchase of our last house. He did a great job! John kept me posted continuously. We were on the phone almost every day, and he handled every problem. I wouldn’t go through another real estate transaction with anyone but John!”

“We have several friends that are agents… John is a closer!”

“John adequately explained the real estate process and what we could expect during the escrow. Whereas my husband is very experienced in these matters,  John was extremely helpful to me during the process and handled much of the paperwork. We had four escrows active simultaneously, and John was essential keeping things running smoothly on my end!”

I feel John went beyond the “call of duty.” He solved all our problems rapidly and professionally and kept me informed almost on a daily basis – relieving me of much anxiety. There are no words to describe my gratitude to John. He made the selling of my home an experience which was memorable. There were several unexpected curves, but John’s expertise and professionalism shone through. He is an asset to Village Properties.”

“John stayed in touch throughout the entire transaction. He even helped a great deal after escrow closed. What service? John is outstanding and is a real asset to your company!”
