Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.5M in Upper East, Santa Barbara, CA.

Marsha Kotlyar is the most impressive real estate agent I have met in a long ,long,time. She is not only very quick to assess your taste but also to find homes to match. Marsha is incredibly easy to work with and very responsible. I have worked with her on both purchases and sales and cannot fault her. It will be my pleasure to continue to work with her on any other transactions in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Hidden Valley, Santa Barbara, CA.

The purchase of our home was a more complicated process than I anticipated because there were not a lot of options in Santa Barbara within our price range. Marsha' experience and extensive knowledge of the Santa Barbara real estate market, and connections proved to be incredibly helpful. She was able to show us houses before they hit the market. Marsha has strong interpersonal and communication skills that were critical when negotiating with banks and other realtors on our behalf. We ended up writing 5 offers until we purchased our home and every time she wrote an offer she impressed us with her ability to negotiate/communicate with the appropriate parties. Another qualities she posses that were instrumental in this process are her attention to details and instantaneous responsiveness.

We were also impressed by Marsha's impeccable integrity and honesty. Initially, my husband and I had a hard time agreeing on which neighborhoods to live. One more time Marsha proved to be efficient. She listened and validated our concerns while trying to help us build consensus.

I recommend Marsha's services without any hesitations.
