      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Felton, CA.
      Ronnie represented me as the seller and she also represent the buyer for my property. I had a trouble free experience and we even closed ahead of schedule. Her insight into marketing my home proved very effective and she is efficient and punctual. I highly recommend Ronnie Trubek.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $900K in Scotts Valley, CA.
      I watched Ronnie sell several homes in my neighborhood over the past few years. Most of those sales happened in a down market yet her listings got sold relatively quickly. When it was time to sell our house I only considered Ronnie and approached her as a motivated seller. In the early months of 2013 we had no idea that buyers were ready to buy. My house had the additional challenge of being a unique property. An 1800 sq ft house with no garage, no walk in closets and one bathroom is not what most people go to the realtor describing as their dream home. On the plus side this house was designed by an architect famous for his elegant glass post modern houses and is perched on a ridgetop with million dollar views. There are no ‘comps’ for small, beautiful, well designed houses and even spectacular views are hard to place a value on.

      Ronnie walked me through all the issues involved in preparing this house for listing, doing the research into the title and right of ways on the 25 acres, and research into what comps we might use to come up with a plausible asking price.

      Many of her thoughts about what needed doing made me gulp but I knew that I needed to listen to her 30+ years of experience and constantly reminded myself that I was a motivated seller. Asking price is always the hardest for sellers in a down market. I had observed over the years that houses priced too high ultimately sold for less than they might have with an appropriate asking price on the original listing. I knew I could not afford to wait a year to sell my house for even less money than Ronnie was suggesting as a listing price!

      In the end the house had multiple offers and sold for over asking thanks to the unexpected uptick in the real estate market in the spring of 2013. All the tiresome groundwork paid off in there being no questions asked by prospective buyers and their realtors that we could not easily answer. Working together Ronnie and I created a marketing plan for the house that generated a huge buzz and my house was the ‘must see’ house on the Sunday real estate tours by all the people who love to go looking.

      It was a tremendous amount of work and, surprisingly, it was fun too. If you are ready to realistic about what you really want (your house sold?) Ronnie will be a good choice. If you need a lot of hand patting and ego fluffing she probably would not be a good choice. She is busy, business-like and always ready to get to the point and get the job done.

      If you are a buyer looking in the Scotts Valley or San Lorenzo Valley area Ronnie has the expertise to know what questions to ask, issues that might crop up to make your life a misery. Water, right of ways, other deed restrictions, septic tank and water well issues-rural property can be loaded with future problems. How you will replace a failed septic leach field or where you will drill the next well when the current one fails are significant issues. You want a realtor who knows where the hidden problems might be lurking. These are examples of the issues Ronnie made sure I had addressed. Answering these questions ahead of time helped our property sell easily.

      I enjoyed working with Ronnie so much that now I like to think a budding friendship is springing from our client-realtor relationship.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Ben Lomond, CA.
      Ronnie was on target with all of her advice. She clearly knows how to market a home for sale. Her suggestions for pricing and sales prep were invaluable. Her communication is clear and honest. Her strategy enabled me to sell my home after being on the market one day. Honesty, integrity, clarity and emotional support are accurate descriptions of Ronnie's style. She also helped in finding me a great realtor in the city I moved to which was invaluable.  MoreLess
