Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $4.95M in Santa Barbara, CA.
Crysta Metzger is an exceptional realtor who is honest, sincere, experienced, and incredibly dedicated to her profession. We were thrilled with all of our transactions with Crysta. She was able to sell our home in record time without any hurdles or surprises...we even were offered asking price because of her knowledge of the real estate market.
Crysta was also our leasing agent when we rented our home on a monthly basis. She chose fantastic tenants which excites us for all future opportunities. All in all, Crysta is a first class exceptional broker!!!

Crysta was very proactive, efficient and organized. Her advise was sound and her energy very upbeat. She is well connected in the market and I felt well taken care of and that she had a true understanding of my needs and goals.

If you need to lease or sell a home, Crysta is the absolute best realtor you could ever find. She is knowledgeable about the market, extremely professional, cheerful, helpful in every way, and gets the job done. Over the years, she has consistently gone above and beyond my expectations. I truly cannot say enough good things about her!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $950K in Alta Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA.
Crysta was instrumental with the purchase of our first home.
With very low inventory and the interest rates increasing, she was able to do all the right things to get us our house. She is a great communicator and someone I would trust in future real estate transactions. Another one of her qualities that makse her a great Realtor is that she is assertive.
I would recommend her to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Westside, Santa Barbara, CA.
Crysta worked with me in purchasing a home in Santa Barbara. She has a high degree of experience and knowledge in this market and knows the neighboorhoods well which was helpfull as I am a newcomer to the area.
Crysta follows the market closely, has extensive contacts and stays up on new listings. She was able to show a number of properties that were not yet in the MLS. This ultimately led us to a opportunity on a short sale property that had fallen out of escrow. She was on it immediately and that was the difference as the bank had an approved price and was looking to close quickly.
Crysta goes beyond what my experience has been from an agent in any of the four homes I've purchased prior to this. This was especially helpful being new to the area. I never felt any pressure to buy which is important to me. I would recommend her highly.

Crysta Metzger and her partner Sherry Stuckey are both truly amazing, highly knowledgeable, efficient, and pleasant people to work with. They are prompt, and organized and most importantly, great listeners! I would highly recommend both of them if you need help selling, or renting your home. They are well connected in the community and very knowledgeable on both the buying and selling ends of today's market.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $200K in West Downtown, Santa Barbara, CA.
I recommend Crysta Metzger extremely highly. As a first-time homebuyer, Crysta kept me informed and always protected my interests in the transaction from bid to close of escrow. I know that my purchase of this property would not have happened without her on my side, and her skill made it much easier for me.

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 in Lower Riviera, Santa Barbara, CA.
Crysta is an excellent realtor in all respects. I have worked with countless realtors buying and selling personal and investment properties. No one knows the local market (especially Santa Barbara) like Chrysta. I have never worked with a better realtor! She is optimistic but also realistic about prices and prospects and does not mislead anyone. She pays attention to paper-work detail, and is a skilled negotiator who knows how and when to close a sale or purchase smoothly.
She is a charming person and so easy to work with.
She will communicate with you via text and email, but doesn't forget the most important type of communication - verbal communication. She stays up to date in the most current forms of social networking from LinkedIn to Zillow.
I highly recommend using Crysta for your realty needs!
