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.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Watsonville, CA.

Sebastian Frey Just sold my rental home in Watsonville, Calif. Over many phone conversations with Sebastian and his local knowledge of the real estate market, without any pressure, I decided to put my rental on the market. I was encouraged by Seb to paint and re-roof the home. I also put in new cellular blinds. This all took a lot of time including help finding a suitable rental for my very wonderful tenant and her children. Seb was very helpful and after the second open house, we had some good offers and the house just closed escrow. I could never have accomplished this without his expertise and he is such a nice person and not high pressure at all. If you are looking for a Real Estate professional, give Seb a call.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Bayview, San Francisco, CA.

Seb worked with me for over a year to help me buy an investment property (I'm very picky and the past year has been a tough sellers' market in the Bay Area). Seb was patient and gave me good advice to steer me away from bad deals. When I finally got a good property into escrow he was, surprisingly, able to negotiate for some discounts and repairs. I especially appreciated how Seb was able to drive the transaction like a project manager, keeping it on schedule.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Santa Cruz, CA.

Seb helped us purchase a condo for my daughter and roommates to use while at UC. His first recommendation turned out to be the best option on the market. And believe me, we looked at everything available. The negotiation and closing process was smooth despite the fact that the property was bank owned. Seb even saved us a few thousand by noticing a potential that the purchase price reduced after the contract was signed.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Watsonville, CA.

Seb was recommended to us and we would, without hesitation, recommend him to others. He helped us sell our home and is currently working with us to buy a new one. In addition to excelling in all the areas mentioned (local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills) there is never any doubt that he is working hard to get the results we want, yet at the same time he is friendly and easy-going, making him easy to work with. If you need a quality agent... Seb Frey.

Seb is an exceptional realtor. Working with us from long distance, he was able to maximize our use of time, showing us many homes when we were in town, in the most organized and professional manner. When we found the home we wanted, Seb helped us through the negotiating and buying process with complete expertise. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, he will definitely have your best interests at hand. Michele and Jim C.
