Hello...I'm Mike Hobbs...and I'm Heidi Kinlen.  Just so you know, this will probably be the only time I get to "talk" first or have my name appear before hers'...ever...Heidi & Hobbs.  I gladly concede to my female counterpart.  OK, Mike earned his real estate license back in 1984 and we've been working together in real estate for the past thirteen years.  Yes we know, that's an unlucky number, but not necessarily for you.  We want you to know us by getting to know us and why what's important to you, is most important to us.  Although the number 13 may be a turn off for some, we hope you'll give us an opportunity, despite being "unlucky", to show you what buying and selling real estate is really all about.  The adventure of it...not the process of it.  Realtors as a whole, all do the same thing, right?  Same forms, same laws governing us, the same MLS access and the same contracts...so why would you choose us?  Because, there is a story to be told and it's your story...a story of your adventure in real estate.  You focus on the destination, the fun, the excitement, the location.  We'll handle the journey part of the trip, the boring stuff...you focus on the Mai Tais, the Luau, the hotels, the beach...oops, wait...I got carried away.  You're not going on a trip...or are you?  Yes you are and the story will be great...it will be fun...and you have destination choices.  Whether selling or buying, you have choices and destinations to see.  Choices in selling or buying provides you with strength and options.    

Heidi and I would like to extend an invitation to you and yours to be a part of an adventure.  Allow us to be your Adventure Guides in your quest for the perfect destination.  Again, whether selling or buying, there's a destination ahead...why not make it enjoyable, fun, informative, great...
 
OK, now for the boring stuff...our background...  I Mike, have owned two other real estate firms and an escrow company.  Per my mother, I've never lied or had a harsh thing to say about anyone.  My education is manifest in a marketing degree from CSUDH and prior understudies in pre-med and mechanical engineering at CSULB where I attended while on a full-ride football scholarship.  I was hit in the head a lot when I was younger...why am I writing this again?  I did 10 years as a radio talk show host on consumer advocacy and produced and starred in two movie shorts…one dispelling real estate myths which received a Telly Award, and another on consumer awareness through comedy.  I was a Top 100 Loan Officer in the country during the early 1990s and received the nickname "MadDog Mike" for saving a little cuddly soft Bulldog from a ferocious Rottweiler.  I started a law firm several years ago where all my real estate clients receive a pro bono real estate consultation from attorney Antoinette Liewen (former Commission with the Los Angeles Superior Court, Public Defender's Office and District Attorneys Office). I am a rock drummer playing in a rock band called No-1U-No…"no one you know" as well as playing for my church as the Praise Team's drummer.  I am passionate about winning and take on every clients' situation as though it was my own..I own everything I do or say and will be held accountable.  I am fluent in english, once played the flute because my mom told me it was a portable instrument (didn't impress the cheerleader at all…mom, can you say, guitar?) and my astrological sign is Cesarian…no, not really…I'm a Capricorn.  That explains why I probably like red.

Bottom-line…if you want a Realtor that gets it, knows it and knows how to protect you while on your real estate adventure…hire us, Heidi & Hobbs.  That decision alone will bring you good luck…

Call us: (805) 482-1800. We look forward to introducing you to a whole new way of competitively selling and buying real estate.

      Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Ventura, CA.
      Recently I came to the conclusion that it was time to sell my home of eight years. As a first time home-seller, I had zero experience with navigating the landscape of trying to sell my condo. After speaking with several professionals including my financial adviser, an attorney and several agents, I was eventually referred to Mike Hobbs and Heidi Kinlen. They were great, from our initial listing of the property through the close of escrow. Without hesitation they took my calls and answered all of my questions. They handled themselves professionally. My entire experience was easy, quick and relatively painless despite the mountain of work I am sure existed on their end. If I have the opportunity to purchase/sell a home again, I know where to turn.

      Sold a home in 2014.
      Mike and Heidi did a good job and got our house sold. They used a new technique whereby they received several offers, evaluated all them for the most qualified buyer with the best offer, and went with that. They were not pushy and worked straight off the numbers. Very unusual but it worked. They worked very well with the bank and the other broker and got the job done. I would use them again.  MoreLess
