Ratings & Reviews

We just recently completed the purchase of an amazing home in Montecito, CA. Maureen was instrumental in the process of winning the bidding for this popular home. She was very thorough in her analysis of the property and extremely persistent with the sellers agent and the trustee who was overseeing the sale. We are extremely satisfied with Maureen and would recommend her highly to other buyers looking for the right home and the right price!

Sold a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $2.725M in Upper East, Santa Barbara, CA.

Maureen McDermut is definitely the best Real Estate Agent that I have ever dealt with. She represented us for the sale of one property and the purchase of another. She led us through ups and downs, ins and outs and always managed to keep us focused on our ultimate goal (which we achieved happily).

She is knowledgeable, sincere, attentive, and one of the nicest people I have met. She is our "forever" Realtor. I have found she knows a lot of areas and what she doesn't know she is willing to find out about. Having dealt with a LOT of Realtors, both through my job and through personal experience, I appreciate her honesty and integrity above all things.

I would recommend her to anyone and everyone I know.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $2.125M in Santa Barbara, CA.

We were interested in the area around Montecito, CA and were exploring the possibilities with a couple of agents who, although nice, were ineffective. We happened upon Maureen McDermut at an open house she was holding and found her to be remarkably straightforward, sincere and extremely diligent.

We discussed with Maureen our wants, needs, and limitations which rapidly led to a series of showings that were all appropriate for us, in that they were in our price range, of the correct square footage, in our desired neighborhood and school district.

The negotiations were handled smoothly and professionally with a rapid positive outcome. Maureen is the ultimate professional, she managed to make the process of buying a home stress free and actually enjoyable.

We highly recommend Maureen to anyone buying or selling their home.
