Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Rocklin, CA.
We stumbled upon Sterling Watkins when we ditched by our previous agent. My wife and I were going to open houses ourselves when our previous agent (who wanted us to buy a brand new house or would push us to overbid extensively. He also wanted to make us a decision in 30 days!! ) from Keller Williams lost interest in us and stopped returning our calls.
We stumbled upon Sterling at one of the houses that he was showing. He was very polite and straightforward. We signed up for his services and we were off to a flying start. He showed us several houses without pushing us to overbid or make hasty decisions. Every house he showed, he told us about the features of the house and the repairs it would require. He would always give tips on regular maintenance of the house and products to use. All his tips were immensely useful as we were first time buyers. He was extremely patient with us and spent a lot of time explaining each and every point of the bidding process- which we went through so many times with him because we would always forget. Every time he was extremely patient and supportive. All this while keeping in good humor and entertaining with his funny stories. Our efforts paid off when we finally got our beautiful house in Rocklin (we spent nearly 5 months looking for it) and at the end of the day we had a very good friend with us.
Sterling even took me to Home Depot to help me shop for all the tools I might require as a first time home buyer. Before we moved in, he took a day off and came to our house to fix stuff (garbage disposal, change locks, etc.) as he figured that I would not be very good at it. Who does that! I can very well say that we would probably not been able to buy the house had it not been due to Sterling's efforts- and this is no exaggeration.
I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family- especially to all the first time home buyers. You need somebody like him on your side.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in West Davis Manor, Davis, CA.
Sterling helped me buy my home in Davis. On top of it being a very competitive market, the complicating financing made for a long process on getting repaired. Sterling was well versed on the FHA requirements and did a lot of hand holding between us and the seller with the primary loan and supplemental loan for repairs. He went above and beyond to make it happen for us and we really appreciated everything.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Elk Grove, CA.
My pregnant wife and I were in a jam! We were living in a rotten apartment complex in North Highlands surrounded by some shady neighbors. Our baby girl was only a couple months away and our lease was about to end.
Sterling Watkins simply took care of everything for us. I am very thankful that within our tight timetables he had the wisdom and skill set to help us find the very best home and not settle for a second rate house. My family is still living in our perfect first home in an excellent location to raise our little girl.
Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $475K in Rocklin, CA.
Sterling has acted as the Listing and Buyer's agent on the sale of both of our homes in Orangevale and Rocklin. His extensive knowledge of the history of the market helped us decided when was a good time to buy and sell, and his years of experience working with other agents made each purchase relatively smooth. Never pushy or overbearing, he provided us with info, and allowed us time to decide what was best for our family. We have recommended many friends to Sterling, and all had positive experiences with him in the sale and purchases of homes over the years. I have no reason to ever use another agent.

In the last 8 years we have sold 2 homes with the help of Sterling and appreciate his honesty and professionalism! He has patience and comes up with active solutions for any bumps in the road and maintians prompt communication.
Sterling is a very patient and caring Realtor. When I decided to downsize he listed and sold my home as well as help me find a smaller one. We started in July, 2011 and by mid October of 2011 we had sold my old home and we closed and I moved into my new home.

Sterling is the best, most responsive realtor I have ever had. He always answers his cell phone or gets back to you right away. He gave me honest answers to my questions and we had a difficult buyer for my house. Thanks to Sterling we made it through and on time for my move.
