Read what Summer’s clients have to say about her service!

Summer is great! She made buying our first house a lot less stressful. She always responded to all our questions right away, she kept us updated, she cared about our needs and guided us through the process with expertise, advice and great attitude. We are so thankful and happy that we got to meet  her and will definitely recommend her to our friends. Norma Dyanely

 
Summer was impressive. Her quick thinking and responses got us a home that exceeds our expectation. She guided us every step and was willing to show us many homes. Very highly recommended !!! Vu Phamn
 
Summer has been absolutely wonderful to work with from the moment we met her. She has helped us buy 2 homes, sell 1, and another just hit the MLS. We have been looking for another home to renovate and our territory is from Petaluma to Vacaville and she has been working non-stop looking and showing  us properties. It was recommended by others to have multiple realtors and we have found Summer to be the only one we need! She is very motivated, hard working, enthusiastic and fun! Anyone would be very lucky to have her working for them as we feel we are!

Summer was a pleasure to work with. Selling and buying a home can be stressful, but she made us feel completely heard and supported throughout the process. She brought her joy, humor, and lightness to the many visits, tasks, and pieces of paperwork- actually making the process fun. She provided concierge service, quickly and seemingly effortlessly handling so many of the details. Summer is extremely responsive, bright, caring and genuine. She was patient with every question and change of heart on our part. She explained everything clearly so that we had all of the information to make the right decisions for us. She quickly "got" the needs and priorities of our quirky family and helped us sell our home for over asking. This enabled us to find and purchase the right home for the next phase of our life's journey. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Originally, we contacted Summer to help determine if we should buy our first home. We planned to take our time, learn the VA-buying process, watch the market, leisurely look around and eventually buy a little piece of paradise with a yard in Petaluma.
However, that all changed when after a few  short weeks and a couple of open houses later, our landlords told us they were selling their home, our rental.
Stressed and riding an emotional roller coaster, Summer confidently held our hands, reminded us that we were “ahead of the game” and quickly guided us forward. She literally and figuratively opened many doors and didn’t stop until we found the right one.
Summer worked really hard for our family. She was always available and responded to every phone call, text message and email. She communicated wonderfully with our seller and mortgage broker, even giving them a firm and gentle push at times to ensure we got what we needed. Summer is organized, detail oriented and direct. She is also kind, patient and passionate.
We highly recommend Summer if you are looking to work with a strong, driven and loving woman that cares about you, your family, your wants and needs!

Consummate professional! Always a step ahead of the process: anticipating and addressing needs; paperwork prepped in advance; super responsive. She sold our house in record time with minimal impact on our family. One open house, 7 offers, sold for $50K over asking. AND she pulled off a  simultaneous contingent purchase. Rock star!

We just bought and sold (at the same time!) with Summer and were super happy with her service. She was very responsive and attentive and listened well to all of our needs and concerns. She gave great guidance and feedback and was proactive in our sale, which resulted in us getting our dream price.  Her style is a comfortable blend of professional and easygoing which makes it easy to talk to her - which is great because you spend a lot of time with your agent and it's important to like them! Overall, Summer is great at what she does and is very easy to work with. Highly recommend!

I am considering selling my home in Ross and downsizing to Petaluma. I asked Summer to take me out to see some properties so that I could identify the features I’m looking for in a house and what it will cost. As we went through each one I was able to identify what things were important to me by complaining about what was missing.

I learned about East Petaluma and West Petaluma and city vs. country in the West. Most realtors want to know up front what I want so they can show it to me. Summer was willing to invest the time to do it my way and discover what I liked and didn’t like. Now I’m a customer for life.

Summer sold me on Petaluma and has exceeded my expectations for a realtor. Most agents focus just on moving houses. Summer focuses on moving a family to a place they love and creating a customer for life. I prefer the latter.

Summer is a natural when it comes to client advocacy. I felt very comfortable with her right away. She seemed very passionate about over-delivering and always had my best interest at heart, which really helped my stress level. She really listened to what I want, I knew she was listening —cause she always had pertinent questions or just knew and had researched all of my options and presented them in a way I could follow.

She was straightforward, which I really appreciated. I won’t have any issues referring someone to Summer in the future, knowing how hard she worked for us.  Lisette Polson



My wife and I purchased our first home with Summer and due to an upcoming wedding and honeymoon overseas, we had to do things very quickly. She helped to walk us through each step and had the expertise we needed to understand each complicated process. We would and already have recommended her!
