Monica and Jacoba are a great team who clearly understand the real estate world and are willing to go that extra mile. They helped us find a great house, negotiate a great price and were able to explain to us things that we weren’t clear on in the buying process. While in the purchasing process the team helped us find the contractors we needed and get bids for the work we needed done as well as recommending local restaurants and businesses on the island. The duo went above and beyond expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs a realtor.user40000189
The only way I could have sold my property ( my dream ) was to have someone who understands what it means to be an islander. Both Monica and Jacoba have the professionalism to make the transaction smooth, but it is their understanding of both the buying and selling of your “dream” is what makes them special. Numbers are just numbers. This was emotion and I could not have done it without them.mandolin39
I will gladly recommend Jacoba to anyone needing a home on San Juan Island. My situation took close to a year to finally close and she always responded timely, friendly, and professionally. We were able to find a home that fit my needs and abilities. She will always be my go to realtor. Thank you Jacoba, We did itMLeppala
Monica and Jacoba are great examples of what Realtors should be. Moving and looking for a new home can be very stressful and despite my indecisiveness and endless requests they were patient and prompt and never made me feel I asked to much. They went above and beyond to help me, even found me a rental during my transition. As a new member to the community they went out of there way to make me feel welcome and assist me even when it was not about business. Would definitely recommend them.meand rn
Bill and Monica were simply fabulous in all aspects of my real estate transaction. I consider myself so fortunate that they were my agents. The process in purchasing my home was smooth from beginning to end and their expertise in guiding me through the negotiations, the financing, the various home inspections and the closing was invaluable.
They have my highest recommendation, with pleasure.Morten Lauridsen
Bill and Monica are a fabulous team to work with. Their follow through on our project was exceptional, and we appreciated that they always kept our budget and goals in mind. They were as determined as we in locating our perfect ‘dream property’, and left no rock unturned in the search. Closing proved complicated, but they weren’t deterred, and took care of the details. We were thrilled at our realtor choice, and are now thrilled with our purchase!
Soon after Monica became our realtor, the interest in our property really took off. We had been trying to sell it for 5 years or so before hiring her. She had it sold in her first year on the job. She seems to know all the ins and outs of getting real estate out there, viewed and sold. She was always on time for appointments, always kept us updated on any and all pertinent info. Overall, Monica did an amazing job and was an absolute pleasure to work with.MET
My husband and I could not be more satisfied with our home buying experience with Monica. We were looking to buy our retirement dream home and Monica truly listened to our needs, likes and dislikes and helped us to find it. From the home search to the offer and negotiation to the home closing process and beyond, Monica was proactive and highly efficient and made the entire process the most pleasant home-buying experience we have ever had. She kept us up-to-date on all pertinent steps in the process and was always responsive to our questions and requests. Home buying and selling can be a stressful time, but with Monica representing us, we were in the best of hands!jchoe
Monica has helped us purchase a property and we now have a property we are selling that is in contract. She is always available to answer any question we may have or had and has worked hard to make these deals work as we are out of the area and both transactions are for vacation homes. I would happily recommend her and would use her again in any future transaction.dawns0
Above and beyond as a realtor, she is dedicated and will do whatever it takes to get it done. The best choice we ever made was picking her as our realtor! She is and island Girl and knows what it is like to treat people as people not profit. I would list and buy with her every time I had the opportunity!captaintalbott
Monica is amazing. She first sold us on San Juan Island before we bought the house. I mean we saw the island and heard the stories that went along with it. We started our relationship via email where she lined up several waterfront homes for us to see. Monica always considered our requests and was sensitive to them. She found exactly what we were looking for. Her response rate is 100%. As far as I am concerned Monica and Bill have gone over and above for us, and continue to help us with anything we need. They even let us stay in their condo one evening when there were no rooms to rent. We appreciate them very much, and highly recommend them. They have become friends to us which is wonderful when moving to a new place!! I look forward to seeing them when I return to San Juan. Big thanks to them both.Msarich22
