Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Watsonville, CA.
We met Hyco through common friends who also had a great experience with him. My wife and I had no options but to sell the home we loved. Throughout the entire process Hyco was very sensitive to our needs both professionally and personally. He was always very prompt to respond to any questions I had, and always had a solution to the issues that came up. When it comes time to purchase our next home, Hyco will be the first person we call.
Hyko came to my home in Santa Cruz asking if we were willing to sell my home. I told Hyko I was not interested. He was very curious, said have a nice evening and he was gone. He showed up again at my house and said he was in contact with the people who are interested in buying my home and said he would like to discuss what price “if you were willing to sell your home” would you need to consider selling your home. I again told him I am not willing to sell my home but if I were offered this “X” amount I would strongly consider selling my home. Approximately two weeks later Hyko showed up at our home still dressed very professionally and presented an offer for our home. At this point we was so very impressed with this man for his professionalism and negotiation stills. I said the offer is nice but I need to find a home that I am willing to move into before signing. He then sat and listed to what we would be looking for and he set up a meeting for the next weekend. My wife and I were so impressed with what he showed us because he really listened to what we said and every home we looked at was had so many of the items which were on our list. That day on the 5th home, we were Sold. We have stayed in contact ever sense.

Hyko has been a great source of support when it comes to real estate. His ability to relate to buyer and seller alike puts him in a league of his own. I have known Hyko for many years now (over 15 years) and now consider him a friend as well. I would recommend Hyko to anyone that has aspirations in real estate/investments. He is the best!!!

I had a great experience with Hyko.
He was very helpful and informative and explained to me the entire short sale process so I felt comfortable working with him.
I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Mr Roppel helped us purchase our home in Aptos several years ago. He was the most professional, competent, and pleasant Agent we could have imagined. He was sensitive to our needs, and always there when we needed him. He has since been helpful answering questions regarding Real Estate issues and has made a point of staying in touch. We would recommend him in a second. If ever we were to sell our home, he would be our agent.

Hyko helped me find and negotiate buying my first home. He asked the right questions to get me focused on what was important to me in a home. He would take me around to potential places and then we would analyze my likes and dislikes of them to get a clearer picture of what I wanted. This was immensely helpful. He listened well, along with adding his insights and expertise. I was intimidated by the whole process and he not only helped me to understand everything but made it enjoyable also.

Hyko Roppel did a splendid job listing and selling my home in Santa Cruz. I had to move across the country before the home was listed, so Hyko managed the entire process, including prepping the property, and disposing of/selling appliances and furniture I didn't have time to deal with before leaving.
Prompt and thorough communication and action were key to making this work for me. He also handled negotiations and communications with the bidders. I think they found his level of professionalism and honesty in the process an important factor in their satisfaction with the whole experience.
If there's anything he doesn't know off the top of his head, he's honest with you about it, and sets reasonable expectations about when issues will be resolved. If you want someone on your side who do his best to get the best outcome for you, Hyko is the realtor you're looking for.

Hyko has always proven to be very easy to work with. I feel that he has my best interest at heart and he knows this area like the back of his hand. There are lots of questions when dealing with real estate and Hyko has been readily available and willing to walk through all the steps and questions I have.
