Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Ojai, CA.
This past August 2014 I had to travel from GA to Ojai CA to get my father's home ready to sell because he could no longer live there by himself after 40yrs. I only had 10 days to clear out a full house, clean it and make minor repairs and place it for sale. After doing extensive research I interviewed several realtors and decided on Andro Kotula. I am very happy that I did! With Andro's contacts in the area and my supervision of the project, my father's house was ready for Caravan in 10 days and I had my first offer 3 days later. In two months time the house has closed escrow and sold for very close to listing price. The entire process went very smoothly and Andro is very customer service oriented and very professional. He was very prompt to answer all of my questions via email or phone and went out of his way to ensure I was happy with his service. This is the first home I have ever sold, then add my father's situation with doing part of this long distance and only 10 days available for me to be on location to the mix. Andro made it stress free and I would highly recommend his services to anyone!! Started out with a realtor and ended up with a friend. Thanks again for everything Andro!
I have worked directly with Andro, and behind the scenes with Trent on two purchases, Ojai and Ventura. They handle the situation as if it were their own home. Andro has taken time to go to the county of Ventura, office of records, to investigate permits,etc. on both properties. He also took personal time to be with inspectors, and he has supplied us with a long list of services from plumbers to electricians-all have worked out well. One of the properties is a 1908 property which needs much restoration. I would encourage anyone looking for a home to contact this office, I not only have beautiful properties but a professional team always willing to help me
Trent was very patient and had great expertise in the RE field. He returned calls promptly and also helped me every step of the way. He was always responsive to my needs and was able to do great negotiation on my behalf.
I highly recommend Trent and I will always use him as my RE agent.
Looking for a home with Trent and Ando is like having a family member at your back. They went to the city records for me do do research, they helped me find contractors who did good jobs, they spoke with an oil company for me. (The property was a complicated one, as you might have guessed.) They advocated on my behalf at every turn.
My point though, is that at all times I felt like they were on my side, that they were willing and happy to do all kinds of work on my behalf. I never felt rushed or pressured. It was clear to me that they wanted me to be happy with my purchase and that they really meant it and that it wasn't just about the money but about integrity as well. This was a great experience.
Recently, my wife was diagnosed with a disability that required her to live in a sunny place away from the Seattle weather. We found Trent on line and were impressed with his experience, and knowledge. Although he knew this would be a long distance purchase he did not hesitate to take us on as his clients. Trent truly went the extra mile, given our unique situation, when I could not be there he acted in my stay. He secured the home we wanted and negotiated with care and respect of all parties involved. I recommend Trent as your agent and know you simply cannot go wrong doing so! Thanks Trent….. well done.
We can't say enough about how wonderful our experience with Trent Jones was! He really made our home buying experience easy, fun and comforting.
We had a challenge with another property we were selling and Trent went above and beyond the call of duty to send forms to escrow and help out so very much (this was not even a property he was involved with). He's an excellent ambassador for this lovely community of Ojai and we feel as though we have made a friend as well as a realtor.
I would recommend Trent Jones to anyone interested in buying property in the lovely Ojai Valley. Our dream has come true.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.15M in Oxnard, CA.
We went to see homes every weekend for probably 6 weeks in a row and saw many different houses. Trent was always readily available any time we wanted to see anything We often saw a house many different times and again he was always available to work with our schedule. He had to leave the country in the middle of our negotiations and he made himself available at all times through Skype or e-mail. He is a pleasure to work with
When my wife and I started looking for a home in the OJai area we were fortunate enough to come across Ask Now Real Estate on line. That bit of good luck led us to Trent and Andro. After almost two years of patiently helping us look for the perfect home we finally found what we were looking for. They helped us find much more than just a home in a truly beautiful area, they helped us find a whole new life style. They really worked hard for us, never lost there patience with all of our questions, phone calls and e-mails. We always felt that open, transparent, honest feeling through all of the ups and downs of buying a home. It's been several months since we closed and Trent and Andro are still willing to help us with things concerning our new home. We truly value our new friendships with Trent and Andro and I can't say enough good about Ask Now Real Estate. Mike and Barb Rugo

Andro is the most thorough realtor I've ever met. From beginning to end, Andro was there on top of every detail. It seems he never tires of dealing with his clients from small to large concerns. Andro is honest, sincere and concerned for both sides of the deal. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
We found Trent Jones to be very attentive and professional. He went above and beyond to help us when we were looking for a tenant for the home we purchased. We would highly recommend Trent to anyone in need of realtor services!
