Ratings & Reviews

A first-time home buyer, I'm really lucky to have Cam as my agent.Her knowledge of the housing market, her diligence and responsiveness all make her an excellent agent. But above all, she knows what I need and looks out for me. She spent time walking me through the process step-by-step and informed me of the tips and tricks that she collected over the years. I wouldn't have bought the property I love without her help. And it's a lot of fun working with Cam!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Goleta, CA.

I have used Cam for three separate transactions over the past years - one purchase and two sales. The purchase was straight-forward, and she did a great job in completing all steps in the transaction.

The sales were far more complicated, since they were both "short sales".

One took place back in 2009, when guidelines and processes for short sales were very murky and confusing (to say the least). Cam was one of the first agents to get specialized training in the "short sale" realm, and she spent a great deal of time and energy behind the scenes to deal with two different lenders. Neither lender was known to be friendly or organized.

Also as important, Cam was able to locate a qualified buyer in the general neighborhood, and managed the buyer's expectations with regard to the time line and extra steps involved - keeping the buyer in the transaction was obviously important. The process took many months, and the short sale to the buyer was completed successfully.

The second short sale took place in 2013, when some of the guidelines and processes had changed and/or evolved. The process still took a great deal of effort and diligence on Cam's part, since once again she had to negotiate with two different lenders who were notorious for being disagreeable to short sales.

She received two offers right away, assessed each for probability of success, and put one into backup position. Then she went to work on the lenders. Her decision to place a backup buyer was crucial, since the first buyer dropped out. She seamlessly replaced the buyer and moved on with the transaction. I also understand that she provided a lot of support to the replacement buyer's agent.

Cam was successful in quickly getting the lenders to agree to the terms of the sale. All the pieces came together in perfect fashion., and in a relatively short time frame. On a personal note, I am extremely satisfied and thankful for Cam's extra efforts on all fronts of these sale transactions - I'm sure I don't even know all of the things she had to do in order to get them done. Since I had no interest in being deeply involved with the transactions, I relied on her abilities to juggle the various roles in the processes from start to finish. She did all of this while maintaining a very positive attitude. A testament to her personality and work ethic.

Showed home in 2014 in Cachuma Village, CA 93105.

Working with Cam has been an outstanding experience. I have had the opportunity to work with many real estate professionals in the past and have had mixed feelings about what realtors bring to the table. Cam's skills, demeanor and professionalism are well-rounded. She is extremely attuned in understanding what you are looking for, being honest about her thoughts of the local market, and putting you in a position to find exactly what you are looking for. This is all done without rush, scare or typical sales tactics of many real estate professionals. Cam is always well-prepared, informed, and honest. I'd highly recommend taking the time to get to know Cam and having her help if you are looking to find a property in the Santa Barbara area.

Bought a home in 2013.

I have gone through two home purchases with Cam. The first purchase was my very first home purchase about 8 years ago. At that time, I had no idea how great of a realtor Cam is. I knew nothing at all about home buying. Cam helped me find a great home an walked me through every step of the process. It was as easy as could be.

Now, I am married and my husband and I just worked with Cam to buy our first home together. Because the process was so easy the first time, I had under appreciated Cam's other skills as a relator which I got to experience this time around as this purchase was anything but easy. With the current climate, our home purchase was in jeopardy of falling through because of the time it was taking for financing. Cam was beyond amazing at dealing with the sellers who were getting impatient as well as my husband and myself who were experiencing very high frustration levels to the point of almost calling the deal off.

I cannot say enough good things about Cam. She knows Santa Barbara like no other and goes the extra mile in every way. We ended up purchasing our home in an area we were not even looking in because Cam found it and talked us into looking at the home even though it was not in the area we were looking in. Even though I was hesitant to look at the home, Cam hit the nail on the head as far as the needs and wants we had expressed in finding a new home. My husband fell in love with our current home as soon as Cam showed it to him... and now, we live in a home we love, in a great location.

Cam is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to real estate but I have to recommend her equally on her overall personality and ethics. There is sometimes a small delay in getting a response from her as she is super busy... but well worth the wait!

She will be my real estate agent for any future transactions.. without a question.

Sold a home in 2012.

I highly recommend Cam Gittler for your real estate needs. I purchased investment property through her and she was instrumental in my making a prudent purchase, which I renovated with her help - and reaped the rewards when she sold it for me. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and the nuances of each neighborhood, which was critical to my investment transaction. She was sharp, timely, very professional. She was also fun to work with.

Bought a home in 2013.

Cam was great to work with and we were extremely pleased with her level of professionalism, and real estate acumen. Cam lives and works locally, which we found very helpful since we were moving to Santa Barbara from out of the area. (I found out not all Zillow real estate agents live in the area!) She definitely knows her craft. She spent a great deal of time making sure we found the right property to suit our needs, negotiated the terms of the purchase, and was on top of all of the required paperwork for our transaction. She also helped us with recommendations for local painters, carpenters, etc. for renovating our home. We had complete confidence in her, and our confidence was well placed because we had a very smooth purchase.

Thanks!

Bought a home in 2012 in Eucalyptus Hill, Montecito, CA 93108.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Cam. She was instrumental in negotiating a great price for my purchase in Montecito. She worked with several of my advisors from back east and was very professional, kept everyone informed throughout my escrow. Tremendously pleased with Cam.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in Goleta, CA.

Cam was approachable and laid back. What made her different from some of the other real estate agents was that she never tries to change your opinion or injects her views. She lets you make the decision, after all, it is your money, and you will have to live with the decision for many years. I purchased my first home from Cam. This house was already in escrow when I expressed interest. Fortunately for me, the buyer changed his mind, and we were able to put in the same offer as the previous buyer before the house was back on the market. I got a good deal on a short sale house, but without the long frustrating wait.

Thank you for taking the time to review me, I really appreciate it. I loved working with you and your darling family. You purchased a great home, and happily have already seen some nice appreciation in value. I've also enjoyed our friendship and the many wonderful meals I have been fortunate enough to enjoy in your beautiful home!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Goleta, CA.

Cam is always a delight to talk to. She has patience and loves what she does, and does it well. We had several phone conversations and updates as I am an out of town owner. She seemed well informed and kept me in the loop through the whole process. C. Roux

Sold a home in 2011 in Westside, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

Cam has helped us with 4 total real estate transactions. She goes above and beyond what you'd expect. From staging to advertisements to helping on home inspections, she really made the process easier. We will, without a doubt, use Cam for all future real estate ventures.
