What Our Customers are Saying About Us

Melissa Carstairs is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. The things I appreciated most about her are that she is available when I need to speak with her (always either picks up or calls back within minutes); uses the most up-to-the-minute technology in marketing our property; has integrity (discloses all factors, good and bad, to all parties up front); is personable and professional at all times; knows the area (was born, graduated from SLO, married a local man, and still lives in the neighborhood). Melissa Carstairs sold our house $10,000 above asking price in twelve days. Melissa Carstairs is awesome in all these personal characteristics. Melissa Carstairs marketed our property so competently that we received three offers, two above the asking price, in a little over a week on the market. Her virtual tour of our property was beautifully done. Her interactions with the Buyers agents and with us culminated in a closed escrow in this unusual Covid market in a month. We are thrilled with her service.

If you need help selling your house, than look no further. Amanda is reliable, caring, professional and, most importantly, was able to not only give me realistic expectations but was able to get the house sold quickly and efficiently. Whenever I needed anything, Amanda was there to help and went far above and beyond the expectations I had. Highly recommended!!!

I highly recommend Melissa to anyone buying or selling a property. As a lifelong Central Coast resident, Melissa certainly knows the area very well. My sale went quickly and smoothly. My property sold at the price Melissa felt was the market value she had calculated. She spent the needed time to find repair people and checked to make sure the work was done well and on time. This saved me a lot of extra time and probably money as she has a team of contractors she works with. I would certainly use Melissa again should I have the need.


Amanda made the process of home buying quick (can, you believe we closed in 30 days!?), fun, painless, and honest. She drove to listings as soon as they hit the market and would video call us. We both work with two small children (during covid) so the thought of looking at properties over an hour away was not fun! But with Amanda, there was nothing holding us back. She did a lot of the leg work, as if it was a house she was buying. Amanda had great referrals for reputable inspectors, electricians, and anything we needed. She helped us find a move-in ready home that we’ve had zero issues with, in a nice neighborhood, a big lot, best house layout I’ve ever seen, and just truly made it easy. We even kept forgetting to cancel our old utilities and the second she heard me say that she offered to help call on our behalf. After we moved out of our home rental she showed up to let the cleaners in and the junkers in. They arrived two different days before the crack of dawn and she was there! She moved heaven and earth so we didn’t have to keep driving back and forth. I’ve honestly always dreaded the logistics of home buying but I regret nothing. My first home buying experience was amazing and efficient. Amanda understood the ins and outs of the home loans and title process and explained all the pieces. Thank you Amanda for helping us find an amazing move in ready home the kids can grow up in! Also, all our friends are jealous of this house – it’s perfect!
