Ratings & Reviews

I had my mind set on a particular house that was increasingly looking as though I couldn't get into it. The house seemed out of my reach. It was a foreclosure and up for auction. One day a friend suggested I contact Seb to get his input on the situation. Maybe there was something he could do I called Seb that evening and after giving him the rundown on the situation he explained how to go about it. He clearly demonstrated his expertise for this type of deal so I asked him right then and there if he would start in on it. It was great! Less than five minutes later we had a backup auction bid submitted on the house. Wasn't more than a few hours later that the bid was accepted. Over the next few days things went quick as Seb further worked the details to make the deal happen. We worked through the contract, the inspections, and all the other requirements. He also recommended an excellent finance company that, like Seb, demonstrated a high level of professionalism, attention to detail, and a "make it happen" attitude. This is my first home purchase and I kept thinking that something has got to give -as things were running so smoothly. All along though, Seb demonstrated confidence in that soon I'd have the place, and not to worry. Sure enough a few weeks later escrow closed! All through the process Seb demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism, knowledge, and experience. And, in saying that, I highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Aptos, CA.

Seb helped me buy a unit in the Seascape Resort down in Aptos. After looking at every unit in the project, I didn't find one at the time that really met all my criteria. So Seb identified a few parts of the complex that I said would work for me, and wrote to all the owners there. He found one that was in fact interested in selling, and after some tricky negotiation was able to get me a great deal on an awesome unit. Seb was so great, we have become friends and next time I need a new property in Aptos I'll be calling upon him again.  More Less

Bought a home in 2012 in Brookdale, Ben Lomond, CA 95005.

Seb Frey has helped us purchase two properties. One was our home - the other an investment property. When we were looking for our home, Seb had to give us an education. He took us to see many possibilities and encouraged us to come meet him whenever he was showing homes on the weekends. Seb NEVER made us feel pressured to buy...quite the contrary....he supported us in waiting for our perfect home. The education Seb gave us while looking for our home helped us understand the market so much that we were able to recognize a good deal ourselves and a few years later he helped us buy an amazing investment property by dropping everything and taking us there just hours after it hit the MLS. When I ask Seb questions about the value of a property I trust his answer 100% and I recommend him very highly.  More Less
