I had known Carol as a Sea Ranch neighbor and found her engaging and fun, and when I became her client upon deciding to sell my house, I saw her professional side, which was not only engaging and fun but also competent, caring, extremely detail-oriented, prudent and savvy all along the way. I had no fear that any lack of attention on my part or any ball dropped by anyone involved would undermine our goal to get the highest and most trustworthy offer and close the deal. She was even thorough enough to ensure that in a worst-case scenario, if escrow fell through due to a fault of the buyer, there was a negotiated backup offer waiting in the wings to take its place. Because I was out of state and it was COVID times, it fell to Carol to help with the removal of my family's personal items from the house, and many other tasks that she took on with enthusiasm. Unlike my previous realtor when selling my San Francisco condo, Carol didn't farm out the staging and photography jobs to high-priced vendors, and I didn't have to pay extra for those things even though the photography by her award-winning photographer husband was superb, and she included, at no cost to me, much of the staging furniture in the deal so the buyer could buy a house that was truly turn-key. All in all, I felt very well taken care of and very effectively served by Carol's diligence, devotion and good humor. I would recommend her highly to anyone needing a great realtor. She's the best.
My husband and I purchased our house on The Sea Ranch in December of 2017. We were living in Georgia at the time and were looking to retire back to California. Hanne was such a great help in finding the right house for us. Shopping for a house long distance is difficult, but she made sure that everything ran smoothly, from showing us houses of interest to completing the final paperwork from Georgia for our purchase. She was always available to answer our questions and to find positive solutions to any problems that arose. 3 years after purchasing our Pine Cone house, we decided to downsize and move to the hillside of The Sea Ranch. This move would prove to be a bit more complicated due to the Covid outbreak and also the time frame needed to simultaneously sell our home and buy another. With Hanne's help and expertise, including positive suggestions on how to best present the house we were selling, we were able to easily accomplish this in September of 2020. I would highly recommend Hanne to anyone interested in a house purchase. She is extremely competent in the area of real estate and also very enjoyable to work with.
Kristen’s upbeat personality and “can do” attitude paved the way for a very pleasant and smooth home purchase process. She was quick in arranging several homes to show us as soon as it was safe to do so (following the pandemic shelter in place order). She thoughtfully planned the tours so that we could maximize our time seeing different homes. The timing was perfect as the buying market picked up quickly after we made the offer on our home. Had we waited a few more weeks, we might have found ourselves in multiple offer situations. Kristen kept detailed notes on the many follow up items and questions that we had and was extremely responsive in answering those questions. She provided sound advice and contacts that helped move the process through escrow. Everything went according to plan and we couldn’t be happier. We highly recommend working with Kristen.
We were very fortunate when we made a phone call to a Realtor’s office in late June and Kristen picked up the phone. In two months we went from dipping our toes in the water to being owners of a Sea Ranch property, and we couldn’t have done it without Kristen. She was an excellent partner throughout the process, providing insights on the Sea Ranch area, giving thoughtful and pragmatic perspectives on various properties, guiding us through the negotiation process, and keeping things moving through the Close process. She was always available when we needed her help, and if there was something she didn’t know, she would find out. She is professional and knowledgeable, and has a wide range of contacts to help with various aspects of the process. Kristen is a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her.
Where do I start? We met Kristen when she showed us a home that we asked to see and she stepped in for the realtor. She stayed in touch, and then the stars aligned. She listens so well, and she kept us informed so that when the time came to discuss a new place in The Sea Ranch, we naturally went to Kristen. She walked us through several options, including buying a lot and building, but we ended up selling our place and buying another at the same time and during one of the biggest inventory shortages the TSR has ever seen! How she found the perfect place for us and got us what our house was worth at the same time was amazing. Then, she sold us the lot next door to the new place! Wow, she is amazing.
Hanne and her team did a wonderful job for us in selling our very special Sea Ranch home, which is the only one yet listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The sale involved a couple of complicating factors that Hanne handled very skillfully. First, we wished to complete our sale before we purchased our next home, which presented some delicate timing issues. Second, our original grant deed contained an error by the original title company, which had to be corrected in the eleventh hour before our sale could close. Hanne orchestrated solutions to both of these stressful complications coolly and efficiently. We highly recommend Hanne and her team.
We retained Hanne Liisberg in the sale of our property at the Sea Ranch California. I recommend her wholly and without reservation. Hanne possesses a broad and comprehensive knowledge of the market she serves-with an eye to design uncommon in real estate sales. Ms. Liisberg demonstrates an extraordinary matchmaking attribute, reconciling needs and desires of potential buyers with the specific attributes of a seller's property. As both broker and agent, Hanne executes her fiduciary responsibilities with total professionalism-prompt, responsive and ever conscious of the need to consummate the transaction with ease and expediency for both buyer and seller.
Hanne helped us to find a great house in The Sea Ranch, California in September 2020. She had previously helped us with our first Sea Ranch property purchase 3 years earlier and although we loved our first house, we decided to downsize. Attempting to sell our current house while trying to find/ finance another house was not the easiest thing to do, especially with the Covid pandemic soaring. With Hanne's expert advice and keen knowledge of the area we made a very smooth transition. Hanne is a very competent real estate broker and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.
Working with Kristen was a great experience. We had limited knowledge of the Sea Ranch, and she was quickly able to give us the lay of the land while coming up to speed with our requirements for property. TSR has a general easy going "beach attitude" but Kristen understood our Bay Area need for responsiveness and details. She was able to explain how the market was different in this area, and helped wrangle the other parties involved in our purchase to get them to respond when we needed answers. To top it all off, she's super nice! Really personable and friendly while still being efficient and knowledgable.
Kristen is a spectacularly responsive broker for The Sea Ranch area. This year was extremely competitive and through Kristen's extreme responsiveness and personal network, she found me an amazing house that I bought before it went on the market! During the process of close, she was extremely on top of everything communication-wise and organization-wise even including helping my mortgage broker find an appraiser since they were so busy! I strongly strongly recommend using Kristen if you are looking for a place up on the Mendonoma coast. She's great!
We just spent our first night in our wonderful new home at The Sea Ranch and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the service and support we received from Hanne Liisberg. Hanne’s perseverance, professionalism and expertise is the reason we were successful finding and acquiring the perfect home in this intensely competitive real estate environment. Her knowledge and years of experience with California's coastal real estate is a great advantage. It has been our absolute pleasure and good fortune to work with Hanne Liisberg.
Being new to the home buying process I chose Hanne based on the level of professionalism, attentions to detail, and evidence of design awareness in her listings. Those qualities reflected in her command of the process, and her ability to communicate the inevitable complexities of escrow to someone new. Hanne and her team kept us up-to-date, and gave solid advice in areas where we were had little knowledge and helped us navigate it all comfortably. We're happy with out new home. I would highly recommend her and her team.
Hanne is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and delightful Lady! We wanted to find just the right place in Sea Ranch and Hanne was exactly the right person to help us! We were in touch via email for 6 months and then in person as our hunt became more deliberate. We are now proud new owners of a perfect place for us. We are writing this enthusiastic advocacy of Hanne overlooking the Gorgeous Pacific Ocean in our new home! Hanne is The Best!
Kristen was a pleasure to work with! She lives in, loves and knows Sea Ranch. She is focused on your needs with no pressure and truly enjoys working with buyers. We especially appreciated that she brought with her from prior careers incredible organization and communications skills. She was a very effective negotiator and facilitator throughout the buying process making it easy and pleasant for all. Thanks Kristen!
Kristen was wonderful to work with. You wouldn't think she only had 2 years experience! She was "on it" from start to finish, keeping us posted throughout the whole process (she sold a lot for us at Sea Ranch), responding quickly to everything, doing a great job of marketing, and showing that she wanted to do this job! I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor to work with.
Hanne and her team are thorough and professional. They make the buying process simple and stress-free. Hanne completely understands the local market; The Sea Ranch is unique, and she is a master at covering all the local conditions. Never felt any pressure, but once decisions are made, she responds quickly and moves the deal to closure. An excellent realtor and a wonderful person!
Working with Kristen was great from start to finish. She had the big picture but also kept us up to date on every detail. She took every text email or call from us right away and with the best attitude. She has even helped get things arranged after the sale, meeting service providers at our house in our absence etc. In short, she was great and we’d be happy to work with her again.
Carol handed the very fast sale of our house during all of the complications of the pandemic with excellent attention to detail, keeping the process moving forward. She was very reassuring as we were in a simultaneous buying position elsewhere that everything would be completed in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a top level agent.
Carol maneuvered my multi-generational family--which was spread throughout the state-- through a somewhat complex sale masterfully. She had her finger on a changing market for sales, used great communication skills and was able to anticipate next steps for us all the way. She is very organized and extremely professional. I highly recommend her!
Hanne Liisberg has been more than spectacular in selling our very uniquely situated oceanfront property. Friends raved about the on-line listing that she created, both with aerial and inside views. We left for the Thanksgiving holiday so she could show the home easily, and when we returned, we had two offers, one of which we happily
Kristen was extremely professional and always responded promptly, often within minutes of receiving a text or email. Her in-depth knowledge of the area and especially, the local Sea Ranch Rules made the home-buying process easy and brought us peace of mind. She truly is on your 'team' and a pleasure to work with.
Kristen is fantastic. She worked hard to understand exactly what we were looking for and then zeroed in on likely properties, and negotiated with seller so that both we and the seller were satisfied. We were not easy clients, but Kristen managed every twist and turn amazingly. I highly highly recommend Kristen!
We feel truly lucky to have found Hanne! She knows Sea Ranch extremely well, has great connections, is organized, punctual, and thoughtful. All around, she is simply a pleasure to work with! We will definitely call her next time we want to buy or sell in Sea Ranch and we will recommend her to our friends.
Hanne is the premier agent in the Sea Ranch for both sellers and buyers for a very good reason. She makes your needs her top priority. She has local contacts to get any job done on time. And she is a crazy selling machine. Also incredibly nice. We couldn't be more pleased with the results of our sale.
Kristen did a great job for us. She worked hard to find properties that had not hit the MLS, enabling our successful acquisition without having to deal with an incredibly competitive field of buyers. She was and is a pleasure to deal with.
Best experience I've ever had with a realtor! She dealt with the unique intricacies of Sea Ranch in an extremely efficient way. Her advice on pricing was right on target. She guided us skillfully through the copious paperwork.
Hanne handled the sale of our property while we were in Los Angeles. She kept us aware of the day-to-day changes when necessary, and was always prompt in addressing our concerns. She is thoughtful, professional and aware.
Hanne is exceptional. Her vast knowledge paired with her drive and determination make her the best in the business. We would highly recommend Hanne and her team to anyone who wants a successful real estate experience.
Carol is great. She is very knowable and was always available to answer our many questions. She went above and beyond in assisting with everything. We are very happy with the process and with our new home.
We purchased a lot with Kristen as our real estate agent. She was very knowledgeable about the building process in Sea Ranch and as able to negotiate an excellent price for the lot we wanted.
