Customer Testimonial | Paul Champlin

Buyer Rating:

I was introduced to Paul Champlin in early November, through a friend of a friend who had done business with Paul many times.

The first time we spoke on the phone, I felt like we clicked immediately. I explained that I was looking to purchase a home for my nephew who had been displaced by the Camp Fire, but that I was not familiar with the geographic area or the local market. Knowing this, Paul was great; he asked a lot of questions and listened to my answers very carefully. In return, I asked A LOT of questions and Paul was so great at educating me on everything from the various neighborhoods, which are better for rental, which for resale, families, schools, shopping, freeway access etc.

To help me understand the neighborhoods, on my first trip up, he showed us 4 houses in different areas. I really appreciated that. It helped in deciding where we wanted to focus. I also learned something else that day - - - given the huge number of homes that were lost in the neighboring communities creating an influx of buyers, I was entering uncharted territory when it came to the current sales market. As such, it was very difficult to ascertain what the "right" price would be to offer, especially when there were 20+ bidders on every home, oh, and by the way, you have 6 hours to get your offer in!

Over the following 6 week period after we first met, Paul relentlessly showed us houses, kept us up to date immediately as each new home in our size range hit the market, wrote multiple offers for us and most importantly he was super sympathetic and caring and let me cry on his shoulder (well, over the phone) when I had a mini-breakdown after finding out we'd lost our 5th home ("Paul, when is it going to be our turn?").

Paul stayed positive and confident throughout this process ("We will find the home that's just right for you") and it occurred to me one day, he was probably having to have these same tough conversations with multiple clients, every day; that could not have been easy - but I never knew. I always felt like we were the only clients he was working with.

I had many conversations with him at 10:00 or 11:00 at night and emails at 1:00AM; he was working really hard for us.

All the stress became worth it on December 17th when our offer was accepted! But Paul's work was not done there; he arranged the inspections (full home, pest, roof), reviewed them, went over them with us, got estimates on the things needing to be fixed, met with the window company and stayed close to the title company to ensure that we would close on time and we did!!

So, would I recommend Paul Champlin? Only if you're looking for a great real estate partner, someone who will always have your best interest at heart, someone who will work hard and advocate for you, someone who you can reach by phone, email or text, anytime day or night and lastly, someone who you would call "friend" and stay in touch with after your transaction has closed. If this is what you're looking for, then YES! ABSOLUTELY!

Customer Testimonial | Dustin Cheatham

Seller Rating:

Dustin Cheatham went above and beyond, excellent in every way possible!!! We couldn't have asked for a better agent in process of selling our home. We were contemplating doing a "for sale by owner" and are very glad we didn't, as there's a lot more involved then we realized. Dustin took care of every detail, helping us find the right buyer for top dollar. His knowledge and wisdom are beyond his years and we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to everyone!!!

Can't say enough with how pleased we are having Dustin as our agent! Very grateful!!!

Beyond expectations!

Customer Testimonial | Maya Noble

Buyer Rating:

My wife and i lost our home in Paradise campfire on 11-8-18. We foresaw the housing crisis coming and immediately made contact with a agent referred to us by a friend. After two weeks of denied offers I received a text from Maya, who i have never met. Her text read, "Hi, I am Maya Noble and I am going to help you find a house.".

She was most interested in helping us actually win a offer on a home so we could start to rebuild our lives. It was a night and day difference between the agent i was working with and Maya. She was aggressive, assertive and thinking outside the box in writing offers to help us have a better chance at winning.

And after over a dozen failed offers, Maya got us a home on her second offer attempt, all while still trying to protect us from overpaying, or giving to much in the way of contingencies etc.

We are very thankful for Maya helping get us into a home and back to getting some normalcy in our lives.

Customer Testimonial | Olivia Larrabee

Buyer Rating:

My long time agent Sue Mower was a victim of the Camp Fire like me, which required me to relocate to Chico. Sue referred me to the Chico office since the Paradise office had burned down like the rest of the town. Sue had to stay with family in Reno Nevada and couldn't show houses until she could return. I met Olivia at the Chico office and she is a charming personable go getter who knows Chico well. Olivia had to work harder and longer to find a house for me because of the fire 25,000 other Paradise residents were also looking to buy a house at the same time. It was real estate insanity, houses going on the market and selling in just hours after being listed. Olivia never gave up, remained positive and persevered. She shared her knowledge and expertise with me to make the best offer and I got the house. I'm very happy with my new home and now looking back realize just what an incredible job Olivia did. After losing not only my home to the fire, but my entire community I was a little dazed and confused but Olivia was patient and kind and determined to find a home for me. Now I live 5 minutes from my grand kids!

Customer Testimonial | Brad Smith

Buyer Rating:

Brad is an excellent realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a friendly and knowledgeable realtor with great customer service.

We felt like our family's home search was a priority to him and he genuinely wanted us to find the right place for us at the right price!

Customer Testimonial | Carol Roniss

Buyer Rating:

Carol went above and beyond! We started looking when we were out of state and she helped us view properties online and offered to view them in person for us. Carol helped our transition back to the area go as smoothly as possible. This is our first time buying a house and she explained each step in the process thoroughly. I would highly recommend having Carol as your realtor and look forward to working with her in the future.

Customer Testimonial | The Jacobi Team

Seller Rating:

Emmett was recommended to us by a friend over five years ago to purchase the house that we just sold and now my wife and I gladly recommend him to anyone. Emmett made it a comfortable process for us by being on top of any issue that came up. His communication skills allowed for us to have an almost hands-off feel to the process. He made sure that we got out in front of any questions the buyer may have and his proactive approach allowed for the sale of our home to go smoothly.

We are proud repeat customers with Emmett and will have no problem calling on him again when we are ready to purchase our next home.
