Client Testimonials

Here are what our Clients are saying...

I had been looking at market stats and properties on the SloCountyHomes web-site for over a year before deciding to take the plunge. It was important to find an agent that I could trust and who was techno savvy because I did not have the time to travel back and forth to make the sale. Lynn made a very strong first impression and did not disappoint. Our sale was smooth and we were able to handle all the details by e-mails and a few phone calls.
- Charlie G. , San Luis Obispo

As for my experience with The Keith Byrd Team, I thought you folks did a great job. I think Nancy understood me right away and she was able to get my offer accepted with a minimum of fuss. When the seller was slow to close, she went the extra distance and cleared up the roadblocks. A very positive experience and I have already recommended you to some prospective buyers.

Please accept our gratitude. Thank you so much for all that you’ve done to help us find our wonderful new home. Thank you so much for the joyful and smooth transition.
- T and Lesli and family, Templeton

Lynn is the BEST! In order to move to this central coast paradise, we had to coordinate 5 real estate transactions! We never could have done it without Lynn's expertise and support.

My wife and I live in Orange County, CA and plan to retire soon. We selected Paso Robles as our retirement community and set out to purchase a second home while we were still working and while prices and interest rates were favorable. Because we live and work more than 250 miles from Paso Robles, it was difficult to locate our dream home until we discovered From the MLS Listing Search, we were able to quickly locate homes in Paso Robles that met our needs (size, age, location, price, etc.). Without this website, we would have wasted many hours on the road and would have wasted time while in Paso Robles looking at the wrong properties. We highly recommend that anyone interested in buying or selling property in San Luis Obispo visit The site is very easy to navigate and it will surely be worth your time.

Then a bit later, we requested some information from the website and were promptly contacted by Keith's North County agent .We began with an idea of purchasing a home on 10 acres, but after a few months of searching, we abandoned that idea. We waffled back and forth several times, making it difficult for her to know exactly what we wanted. She never seemed to be discouraged or to get frustrated with our lack of clarity. Then, my wife became ill and we stopped looking for a home for about one year. When we called to resume our search in 2009, she once again made herself available on our schedule (weekends, on short notice). Beyond knowing the area very well, Nancy has a knack for listening to clients (even people like us that did not quite know what we wanted). Soon, we found our retirement home and, unfortunately for Nancy, it was a Short Sale, which meant a lot of work, less commission, and high probability that the deal might fall through. Nonetheless, Nancy worked very hard to make the deal happen. We are very appreciative that Nancy stayed with us for over two years and helped us locate and buy our dream home. We strongly recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell a home or property in San Luis Obispo area contact the Keith Byrd Team."

Our experience with Collette was simply awesome. Very very professional, she is smart and knows her job well. She represents the buyer 100 percent. She is enthusiastic about making sure the buyer gets what they want. She goes out of her way to research any obstacles that the buyer may have. She makes you comfortable and easy to talk to. She makes sure that you understand what is going on with the sale of your home. She wants the very best for you to get the most for your home. I would have to say she is the best relator ever to have working for you. We would recommend her to anyone who wants someone that knows her business. A very enthusiastic remarkable real estate agent that is head and shoulders above the rest, and we have met a few that don't even come close. 
- Duane and Linda

Lynn was our agent for our San Luis Obispo home and did an excellent job. When my mother began to talk about buying a property in   Morro Bay- we called Lynn. She was as professional and personable with them as she had been with us.
- Dawn N, San Luis Obispo

Collette is a no-nonsense person who will not steer you wrong. It’s clear she values concise, honest solutions to the issues that tend to crop up during a transaction. I really appreciated this as well as her expertise and her willingness to put out that needed extra effort as she dealt with all the complicated facets of a short sale. She knows her market and has great resources at her disposal that made this difficult sale easier and less traumatic.

Shea is the most diligent and capable Realtor that my wife and I ever worked with. Shea showed us dozens of listings and provided stellar advice throughout our real estate transaction without pressuring us to make our choice of home. It is abundantly clear to us why Shea was the Santa Maria Valley 2008 Realtor of the Year. I give Shea's business cards out to anyone that is interested in buying real estate on the Central Coast because I know that he will provide exemplary service unlike any other real estate agent we have EVER met. Shea is the best there is!
- Walt and Lisa T., Santa Maria

Lynn was simply delightful. My husband had always handled our Real Estate transactions- so I felt a bit overwhelmed on my own and relied on Lynn to walk me through the steps and hold my hand. I could not have done it without her.
- Charla W., Arroyo Grande

We are having the time of our lives here and we speak of you often to other people as to how you were a huge part in making our dream come true. We had the family come over the weekend and they loved the house. Funny deal about it is how we are so popular now - LOL. 
Jo Ann is starting to decorate, but as I told her, just take it slowly and enjoy the process and get what you have always wanted so it’s fun!!! 
Collette thank you again for everything you did to make our dream come true…"
- Raul G.

Shea went well beyond the call of duty with us for a year and a half to find us the perfect home. We feel that he is like family to us. He knows all of our likes and dislikes. We can't say enough good things about him to explain the wonderful job he did for us. We plan to purchase a rental home in the very near future and we wouldn't consider anyone else to help us. We know that we can always count on him and trust him to find us another perfect house. We can see why he was voted Realtor of the Year last year...He IS!!
- William and Cathy P., Santa Maria

My wife and I decided to purchase a vacation home in Cambria, but did not have any contacts in the area.  We met Lynn through the web site and to be honest, we were somewhat leery.  We soon realized our concerns were unnecessary. Once we met Lynn and spent some time with her, we knew we were very lucky and in good hands.
- David G., Cambria

This was our first home purchase and we are so thankful for Shea. There never was a time we felt out of touch with anything happening regarding the purchase of our new home. Shea was always willing to help use. We felt that the purchase of our home went very smoothly.
- Samuel and Sandra B., Santa Maria

Nancy did a great job, our house sold in less than a month!!!!
- Karen and Ken H, Paso Robles

We were first time home buyers and Nancy made the process so easy! She was in touch with us daily, made sure we understood what was happening and made sure that we ended up with our dream home. THANK YOU!!
- Anita and Zac, Paso Robles

 Before this transaction, I had never met a Real Estate agent that I would recommend to friends let alone liked. I have since referred Shea to many friends and customers of my own because he exceeded my expectations.
- Justin F., Orcutt

Thank you, Nancy , for being there when we needed you! We are doing quite a lot of work and we are excited as it is truly beautiful! You did a great job for us and we are indeed grateful.
- Ed and Vi, Atascadero

The most important things that I look for in an agent is if they are friendly and willing to work for me to get the best house at the best price possible. Collete actually went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did she do all of the above but she got us a great person to help with financing. Communications is the key to any transaction. We were always kept informed at every step of the process. A+ Collette!
- Kathy A.

Nancy , from the heart – thanks for making our first home buying experience a pleasant one!
- Warren and Naomi and family

Thanks again for everything. You really made my first home buying experience a good one!
- Marc I, Atascadero

We found Collette to be very knowledgeable with the local area - not only houses, but everything else you could want to know when relocating to an area. She helped me with many issues, such as landscaping, decorating and schools. She was very timely with returning phone calls and making appointments. The San Luis Obispo real estate area market is challenging with not much availability so it was nice to have someone who could find what we wanted. I respect her opinion and recommendations.
- Paula O., Avila Beach

Nancy is by far the BEST realtor I have ever worked with. Trying to buy a home from across the US is quite a challenge but Nancy was always there for us. Her vast knowledge base of the area along with her realtor savvy and fantastic attitude made a grueling process instead quite enjoyable. We never could have done it as smoothly as we did without her. There is simply no one better out there!
- Anna  and Matt  T

Because of seller-side issues, the transaction was not an easy one. But Collette could not have been more helpful, working through each problem and offering excellent advice throughout. Her knowledge was extremely valuable, and her patience much appreciated. She was a pleasure to work with in every way.
- A. Johnson

Nancy, thank you for your continuous and extraordinary effort in assisting us with the purchase of our new home. Your knowledge of the real estate market, your advice, diligence and dedication on our behalf was well beyond the usual and will always be appreciated. We are grateful for all you have done for  us.
Warmest regards.
- Raymond and Mary
