Sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Morgan Hill, CA.
I had approached Tina about listing my house when my husband passed away. She walked me through the process step by step. She was very knowledgeable about the market and knew what needed o be done to make it marketable.
She immediately took over the task of staging the house by painting rooms, moving furniture around, and even bringing in decorative items. We finally listed the house and the market took a dive! It was very discouraging, but Tina was always upbeat which helped me cope with all of this.
In the meantime, she showed me houses suitable for me...something affordable and a small, one level, but that was also very discouraging. We did find a house in a gated senior complex, but my house hadn't sold so had to play the waiting game. After a year on the market my house finally sold and I was able to buy into the senior complex. I had to completely update the kitchen in my new house and Tina helped me through that process also. She recommended a great cabinet maker and helped me purchase new appliances.
That was 6 years ago and I am very comfortable in my house with a small yard, which is very manageable for me.
Tina took care of me in every aspect....from the beginning of the sale to the end of purchasing and updating my new house. I would definitely recommend Tina to anyone buying or selling. Through all of this, I gained a wonderful friend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Salinas, CA.
Phenomenal buying/selling agent!
I used Tina to buy a house when I moved into the area, and then used her to sell the house when I moved out. She knew the area, knew how to negotiate, and listened to my needs. She was patient and found me a house that met my needs and when I sold it she was the only one I considered and she got me more than anticipated.
I have owned/sold 4 properties and wish I had her each and every time; hire Tina without a second thought, she will take care of you!
I was a first time home buyer with a single income. Tina sat me down 2 years prior to my purchase and helped me prepare to be ready to buy my first home when the time came. As soon as the market and my income matched up, she called me and we started looking at properties. Tina knew exactly what I could afford and what I wanted in this huge investment that I was making. I was so nervous writing an offer on the first house but Tina talked me through the whole process and explained everything step by step. I didn't get the first house because I was using a VA loan and most buyers at that time were using all cash. Tina never blinked: she kept looking for me and sent me to an address where when I drove up before seeing the inside, I knew that it was perfect. We were able to go inside the next day and by my standards it was so gross and dirty that I was disappointed and sad but Tina showed me to look beyond the dirt and trash and see the layout and the potential. Tina wrote the offer and dealt with my credit union. I almost lost the deal a couple of times because of my credit union but Tina rescued it every time. We closed as she promised a couple of years before, by my 40th birthday. Tina was right, after a few weekends of cleaning and painting my new house became my new home.
I am thankful to have found a real estate agent that was up front and honest, that knew what I needed and wanted. I have recommended Tina to everyone that I know and they all have been affected by the same honest wonderful experience that I received.
She also helped my Mom make a smooth move from Las Vegas to Morgan Hill. My Mom was very limited to computers, internet and email and Tina made her feel comfortable and walked her through every step. Tina knew how to handle the limitations and helped make my Mom very happy. Tina not only found her the perfect home, she also found her the perfect town.
I highly recommend Tina Salos to be your next agent.
This is the letter of recommendation written for Tina Salos:
November 14, 2013
Thank you for your efforts, time and energy in selling our Wellington Street home in Salinas. You are a calming influence during a very stressful and turbulent time.
Your tactful and skillful manner in suggesting improvements to show the house is quite impressive. You made it fun to magically transform our home into a showcase residence. We never cease to be amazed at how well our home showed in the pictures and during the open houses.
We enjoyed your friendly and cheerful attitude during our interactions. You were always there, spending time by our side as we prepared, sold and moved. Your suggestions and guidance made the process painless.
We appreciate the professional and direct approach you took in resolving inspection reports and working with contractors. You resolved many apparently difficult situations with ease, which helped see us through the process.
If ever we were to live in the area again, we would definitely have you be our realtor.
We feel that we gained a friend in the process, for which we are grateful.
Please share this letter as a recommendation to any and all that are interested. They may contact us personally if they would like to hear more.
Best to you in your pursuits –
Roger and Jeanette Reinsch
