Ratings & Reviews

Sally Bookman is an intelligent and wise woman. Throughout the time that our house was on the market (and even after it was sold), she provided spot-on advice, good counsel, and a firm guiding hand. The multi-generational and multi-cultural Bookman team brought many talents and skills – high-tech savvy, an artistic eye, and cookies-and-milk hospitableness, to name a few. Sally and the Bookman team navigated us through a daunting housing market to a sale in less time than anyone could have hoped for.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $625K in La Selva Bch, CA.

Sally provides personal and professional service. She helped us through a very difficult sale of our home. She was knolwedgeable, understanding and patient in regard to our needs and went beyond the basic services usually provided by a real estate agent. I would reccommend Sally highly and I am glad she was on our side during a diffiucult transaction

Bought a home in 2011 in Rio del Mar, Aptos, CA 95003.

Sally is excellent! From the very first time we talked, she listened to our needs and did everything she could to fulfill them. Sally efficiently gathered a list of homes that met our criteria and we went and looked at them. She was knowledgable in every aspect of the real estate market and was patient. We found the home we loved and she negotiated the price to what we could afford. During escrow, she constantly kept us updated on our progress and we felt it went smoothly and without a hitch. My husband and I have already recommended Sally to a friend...she is definitely a competent and engaging agent. It is also quite an added bonus that she is extremely pleasant to work with!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $700K in Felton, CA.

Sally is amazing in every way. She listened carefully to our priorities, and showed us only places that comported with those priorities. We were moving from New York, and she accommodated our travel schedule and essentially spent an entire weekend driving us around from place to place. We had our 4-year-old in tow, and she played with him while we looked around, commandeered some of her granddaughter's toys for him to play with, and even delivered a much-needed PB&J sandwich on our second day of touring. Sally's team handled all the procedural details, right down to ensuring that the carpet was cleaned before we moved in. I cannot imagine a nicer home-buying experience.

Sold a home in 2011.

Mr. and/or Mrs. Zillow, I have know and worked with Sally Bookman since the early 70's. That in itself must say much about her abilities and my trust in her. I can add that although I now live some 1700 miles away, I still used Sally for the sale of my Aptos home. Regards Ted Downward

Sold a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $1.025M in Aptos, CA.

Sally has been our realtor as well as dear friend since she assisted us with the purchase of our very first home in 1999. We have valued her expertise, professionalism, kindness, loyalty and friendship ever since. We highly recommend her to all our friends and acquaintances who are in need of any assistance with real estate.

We are secure in the fact that when we are ready to buy or sell in the future, we can undoubtedly count on Sally for all our real estate needs! She's incomparable!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $475K in Watsonville, CA.

Short Sale Wizard: Sally delivers on "Mission Impossible" for our dream home on 3 acres of land! My partner and I tango-ed with Sally through a grueling 7 and-a-half month close, with two big banks considering three loans, filings of bankruptcy, and divorce finalization by the seller, who had not moved out of the house until the day we got our keys. The process was guided without losing our compassion for the seller's personal issues, in spite of the seller's agent being the seller's close friend who did not enforce move-out and deadlines as he could have. Sally dealt with all of this for us with professionalism and sensitivity, and thus it remained a conscientious and successful process to the dramatic final moments because of the dexterity and timeliness at every turn she took in pushing the ball along until we were in our home.

Sally is a lovely, heart-centered woman whose personal dedication to her clients goes way beyond exclusively making money (although she is very good at that too, as a Santa Cruz County top seller over many years) and into what I would wholeheartedly endorse as Karma Yoga (selfless service)....in this and other realms of community upliftment she is involved in as an artist, social justice educator, and philanthropist.

We would not hesitate to recommend her and have to several of our friends.

Bought a home in 2009 in La Selva Beach, Watsonville, CA 95076.

My experience with Sally was nothing short of fantastic. This was my first home-buying experience and Sally was with me every step of the way. We had a challenging sale on a lower-priced, bank-owned property and Sally and her daughter Tootsie fought for me every step of the way. Sally is very knowledgeable, never pressuring (she actually advised me against many properties that she felt weren't good fits) and takes the time to get to know you and your needs. I couldn't have done it without her.

Bought a home in 2010 in Old Mill Park Mobile Home Park, Aptos, CA 95073.

As a first time homebuyer I had no previous experience with purchasing a home or Real Estate Agents. Sally returned every call in a timely manner, answered every question and resolved every issue. I absolutely love my home and it is due to the fact that Sally suggested I do a walk through after seeing just from the outside. Had it not been for her I would not be the happy homeowner I am today.
