Francie Berezo Testimonials
Here are what Francie's clients have to say about her...
It is remarkable to work with someone who is both so professional and warm.
Francie has proven to be a patient and steadfast agent, as we wandered around
for over two years looking for property to purchase. We eventually found what we
wanted out of state, but she still found a way to help us by finding a referral
agent. We eventually put our Montecito house on the market, and Francie was so
dedicated to us and our house. With her signature sunshine smile and on-the-ball
attitude, we had a successful experience. She went above the call of duty so
many times, we just love her!
— Fran and Wayne
We needed a listing agent and Francie was our first choice. She stepped into the
situation with a positive, confident attitude and a willingness to move forward
during the holiday season. We can’t say enough about her capabilities as a Real
Estate agent, given the nightmares of buying and selling a home simultaneously;
she reduced our anxieties by keeping us updated, informed and providing great
advice. Even while vacationing outside the country, she continued immersed in
selling our condominium within the stipulated timeframe.
We strongly recommend Francie as the Real Estate Agent of choice.

It was a real pleasure to work with Francie. She was the perfect combination of
warm and caring with a keen skill for all the details that are needed to complete
the sale. I needed someone who was dependable, knowledgeable and connected

We have worked with Francie buying 2 properties in Santa Barbara during the
past 10 years. On both occasions, the process of buying required extrordinary
circumstances and thus extrordinary demands on Francie. This complexity was
due to having to make informed decisions regarding geotech reports, dealing with
city planners, an investigation of historical data, and referring to her host of
talented peers. My husband and I were, and remain, amazed by Francie. She is
not only talented and informed, but is ethical as well.

We hired Francie to help our son purchase his first home in Santa Barbara. She
showed us several properties, accommodating our schedule since we are from
out of town. When we found the "right" property, Francie went well beyond our
expectations, walking our son through every step in the process. Thanks to her
experience and attention to detail, there were no surprises - she was always a
step or two ahead. Her assistance continued past the close of escrow, even
helping our son with utilities and contractor contacts. We highly recommend

Francie was our agent when we purchased our Ojai home in 2009. This after
helping us look at literally many dozens of houses in Ventura, schlepping around
with our 2 kids and 2 Pomeranians! She was incredibly dedicated to the process
and 100% trustworthy. She helped negotiate matters with the bank (bank owned
property) and get some things worked out that the bank normally wouldn't
accommodate. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
