SUCCESS STORIES

Justin & Nicole MacNaughton

"We recently moved to Santa Barbara and we were lucky enough to be referred to Emily Kellenberger and her team. Working with her was such a great experience even in a very challenging market. She was so knowledgeable, supportive, and kind. She was always available to answer our questions with a strong understanding of the entire process so we went to her often. She was honest and professional, but still felt like a friend when needed. She also has good tactics to really get the house you want when it's time to make the offer. I would highly recommend her to a friend." 

Corey Nichols & Kelsey Reddick

“Emily and her team were a complete pleasure to work with! They kept us in the loop throughout the whole process and guided us every step of the way. They were more than willing to work with our busy schedules and showed up day or night to view properties with us! Emily and Michelle have both been so helpful even after the close of escrow. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more knowledgeable realtor!” 

Michael Ma & Dawn Russell

"We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and help in getting the home of our dreams.  Our entire family knows that without your expertise it would never have been possible!  We feel deep gratitude for all that you have done.  You made everything as easy as possible for us and helped us navigate the challenges of the current real estate market.  We have nothing but praise for you and will highly recommend you to anyone who wants to work with the best!"

Matt & Tara Dees

“We are getting settled into our new home and can’t even explain how happy we are.  We have a huge crush on our new home and LOVE the location.  We literally walk everywhere and the neighbors are so amazing and friendly.  Thank you both SO much for all of your hard work over the past few months: selling our house so fast and getting us our dream house.  We couldn’t have imagined a better scenario. You are so meticulous in your business and put in so many hours and it really pays off.  We always know we could reach you with every little question and we felt so confident that we were being taken care of.  We appreciate all your hard work and just wanted you to know how happy we are in our new home. Thanks again! We have worked with Emily Kellenberger several times over the past five years and we can honestly say she is one of the best realtors out there. She is completely on top of every detail, is always prompt with answering phone calls/emails/etc, and really goes to bat for her clients. We recommend her to everyone and can’t say enough positive things about her personally and her service.”

Somayeh Dodge

"I can't recommend this team enough! Emily, Katie, and Deirdre helped me to buy a townhome. What I liked most about my experience working with them was that I never felt pressured and instead I always felt supported. Their team is very professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Emily, Katie, and Deirdre are so friendly and pleasant to work with. They patiently explained things to me and helped me with every concern and decision throughout the process. They made the whole experience so enjoyable. Thank you!"

Megan Schmidt

"As a first time home buyer, I was so, so extremely grateful to have Emily on my side. My experience (due to the lender I chose!) was the complete opposite of smooth, and even with so many unforeseen obstacles and delays, Emily held steadfast through the entire multi-month process with grace, patience, kindness and humour! I truly believe that Emily was the reason we were able to hold through and remain in good faith with the seller on such an unplanned extended loan approval. She was always on top of it, kept others on track, and saw the deal through to the finish. She is an invaluable person to have on your team, her experience and knowledge of Santa Barbara real estate is unparalleled, and as a client you know without a doubt she has your back. Emily really cares about her clients and it shows. I didn’t just have an amazing realtor, I also made a friend for life!"

Brandon and Jamie Doheny

Emily is extremely nice and personable.  She knows what to look for, both good and bad, in an home and handles negotiation with respect for all parties.  She spends as much time as you need to discuss any part of the process regardless of when that might be (10PM on a Saturday, etc.)  She is also timely and met every deadline on a quick escrow.  Likewise, she always kept us up to date about what still needed to get done and what was already done. Great agent!

Emily is an incredibly personable and thorough real estate agent. We chose Emily to help us sell and buy multiple homes because of her responsiveness, attention to detail, and extensive knowledge of the Santa Barbara real estate market. Her ability to navigate negotiations and appropriately price our homes for the market allowed us to hit all our goals and enter into seamless transactions. Emily is also meticulous when it comes to marketing decisions and helped us to stage our home in the right places and finalize design decisions. We will definitely use Emily in our future real estate transactions and would strongly recommend her to anyone!

Kerry Zemp & Lesley Comer

Emily has been wonderful to work with, an absolute 10. She is patient, professional and astute. We were very selective clients, taking over two years to find our perfect home, and Emily was right there the whole way, never losing confidence nor patience with us. She kept us well informed of new listings, and continually fed us information on comps, closings, etc. We have valued her smart, friendly and fun manner, and highly recommend her real estate services.

Curt Dvonch & Anna Trugman

Emily was our agent for buying our first home. She is incredibly detail-oriented, responsive, and has extensive knowledge of the local properties and home buying process. As two working professionals, she took a huge load off of our plate during the home negotiation and buying process. She is extremely friendly and fantastic to work with. If we move again, we will definitely recruit her help.

Marc Palermo

“Organized, trustworthy and versatile are few attributes that describe Emily. Given many challenges, Emily was quick to perform with an eagerness not just for success but to service her clients.  The opportunity to work with Emily again would be a privilege.”

Jacob & Megan Dallas

“Emily and her team went above and beyond to help us get our dream house. Emily is honest, enthusiastic, proactive and so easy to work with.  We went to look at many houses around SB county, and Emily and her team always made themselves available to be there with us, every step of the way. Once the escrow process begun on our house, Emily got married and left on her honeymoon. She made sure we had qualified contacts to help us through the process. While away, she even took phone calls and responded to emails, to ensure things were being handled efficiently. She is so professional and reliable, and does it all with a smile on her face,  you can tell she really loves what she does! We are so grateful to Emily and her team, for making our farfetched dream a reality.”

Michael & Anna Costa

Emily is such an incredible real estate professional! Not only was she fantastic through the process of selling our house but she also worked with us way before we signed a listing agreement. Emily was able to give us amazing recommendations for prepping our home for sale and other key information. She did so many things for us behind the scenes that we barely had to lift a finger the entire process. She works with an amazing team of professionals and not only did our property get an offer the first day it was listed on the MLS but we were also able to close early. If you are looking for a seasoned pro who works hard and cares for her clients then Emily is the ONLY option. Thank you Emily!

Buck Paulson

“After 50 plus years of being an artist, I am overwhelmed to continue to learn from associating with Emily. She has a great imagination, a master of details, and a willingness to work to the completion of the a project, regardless of what time and effort it takes. She is an absolute winner, in all ways.”

Tim & Annie Wright

“Dearest Em, I am writing to thank you for being the fabulous real estate agent we think you are.  You are great with numbers, but you were meant to be out there where the people are, helping us find the perfect home that fits our family’s needs.  Your meticulousness and care in every step of the way made our part easy and fun.  With Tim being the VP of marketing for his firm, he told me how impressed he is with your knowledge of Santa Barbara’s real estate, as well as other areas, and your ability to ‘read’ the market and its trends.  Real Estate can be a tricky business, but you have a strong hand on the pulse of this market.  Tim trusted you and it made him feel at ease.  Let me say it again, he was impressed with your sales skills.  Thank you for being readily available.  You made the contacts I requested quickly.  Since we are friends, it made ‘going shopping’ for a house fun!  I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you looking for the perfect house.  You were patient, fun, and you took an interest in our family and our needs, and you encouraged me not to settle for less.  I loved how you kept a log and were able to refer to exact dates and conversations you had with us and others.  You represented us with confidence and genuine friendliness.  When we did found our home, you worked well with the other agent to pull the deal together."

Tony & Ann Shelton

“Emily represented us even though our purchase was a private one.  After the sellers met her they also wanted her to represent them, which is a little unusual but a reflection of the positive, professional and genuine attitude of Emily.  She and her staff were efficient, patient with our questions and expedited the transaction in less than thirty days.  Emily is a gem and in the future I will always use her if need be, and enthusiastically recommend her to others. My husband Tony and I met Emily in February 2011, referred to us by someone who thought highly of her. Emily spent the month of February educating us about the neighborhoods of Santa Barbara and took us to countless properties for sale.  Always upbeat and fun we were amazed at her sincere interest in achieving our goal.  We left Santa Barbara at the end of the month full of information but with no decision or purchase offer tendered.  Emily remained upbeat through our efforts and felt the most important  thing was to help us understand our goal and achieve it. The following February, back in Santa Barbara, the market was changing and the properties available to consider minimal."

Alan & Patty Murray

We initially met Emily through a vacation rental several years ago.  When the opportunity came to move to Santa Barbara, Emily’s was the first name on our list. From the start, we were so impressed with the communication and dedication Emily and her team provided to us, all of this before even arriving in Santa Barbara. From sending pictures and videos to us across the country, to viewing houses on our behalf prior to our arrival, we had the confidence that Emily not only understood our wants. desires, and needs in a home, but provided us with the whole package regarding schools, financial and other resources, community, etc. When it came down to negotiations, Emily was always ahead of the game. She anticipated our needs and requests, sometimes even before we knew what we wanted!  Her knowledge and professionalism came to the forefront, and we felt like we had the upper-hand in the buying process. Without a doubt, Emily is one of the most dedicated, experienced, and thoughtful agents we have worked with.  It was a pleasure getting to know Emily and her team, and when the time comes that we may be ready to dive in to the housing market again, Emily will be our first call!

Liz Inglese

“Emily is a person of integrity and can be counted on.  She also is very compassionate and open. No force with Emily just power, love, and charisma.  I experienced being heard, and communicated to.  We worked well together from beginning to completion.  I know Emily cares about me and my needs.  From the very beginning, Emily held my had and we entered this journey, so to speak. I asked a lot of questions and Emily patiently answered them.  We spoke every day to make sure we were both taking steps in the direction we said we would. Emily is an amazing human being.  Truly a gift to all who come in contact with her!”

Darren & Negar Haley

“Working with you for both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home has been a delight. Your ability to find us a home that fit our desires, walk us through the purchase of that home, and time the sale of the condo could not have been orchestrated better. We attribute our real estate success to your well laid out business and marketing plans as well as your knowledge of the Santa Barbara market. Throughout our time working together you demonstrated the aptitude, character, and tenacious spirit we were looking for in a real estate professional. Your upbeat and cheerful attitude combined with superb attention to detail made us very comfortable throughout the entire process. Most importantly we always felt we were the focus of your undivided attention and that you held our best interests at heart. These skills truly set you aside as a real estate professional and as a person. Emily, you were truly a fantastic realtor to work with. We wish you nothing success and happiness in business and in life.”

Jason & Nancy Marden

“If you are in search of a realtor in the Santa Barbara area, look no further than Emily Kellenberger! She is quite simply put, the best! Being out of town buyers, we needed someone who was attentive and responsive to our needs; someone who can basically be our eyes and ears to keep us informed. Emily not only met every criteria we were hoping for in a realtor, but exceeded all expectations. She is highly competent, knowledgeable, trustworthy, attentive, communicative, helpful, professional yet personable (the list can go on and on), and truly cares about what your needs and desires are. We also worked closely with Emily’s team throughout the process and they were as equally amazing! We never felt rushed to make any decisions we were uncomfortable with and when we were uncertain about the properties we were contemplating buying, they were patient and understanding. We can’t say enough about how much we loved working with Emily and her team."

Elida Martinez

“I was introduced to Katie Mohun through a friend, and I am so grateful to have chosen her as my agent. Katie is an excellent agent who helped me find my first home during a high-demand time. Katie was very responsive, organized and knowledgeable. She carefully guided me through the entire process and was understanding of all my questions. As a first-time buyer, I was nervous and anxious about the process. However, Katie walked me through every step with reassurance and guidance, which was invaluable to me.  I am glad I had Katie on my side during such a huge life decision. I would highly recommend Katie to others looking for a new home!”

Traci Bumpus

“Katie was a dream to work with. I live out of state and had to move fast. Katie was my eyes, ears and legs on the ground. She toured the property twice on my behalf and then again over face time so I could see it before I flew down. When I flew in to see the property she had the offer written up and ready to submit as soon as I gave her the green light. Her quick action and professionalism are the only reasons I was able to buy my dream vacation home. She gave me confidence throughout the process despite the challenges of buying out of state. I highly recommend letting Katie help you too!”

Deidre Silva

“Katie Mohun was so great to work with. She treated me like a REAL PERSON and not just a number. She was by my side throughout the whole journey and celebrated with me as I purchased my first home!”

Jeffrey Stewart

“Emily McBride is the best realtor in Santa Barbara, hands down!  She is extremely knowledgeable, has tons of resources for financing, closing, inspection, repair, gardening, etc., help with your purchase, has the experience you need, and is fun!  How many realtors can you say that about–that they make the process of buying a home fun?  None.  Get Emily and enjoy the most important purchase of your life.”

Amy Dunphy & Anthony Keris

“Emily Kellenberger is the best – no one in town will work harder for you or get you better results!  Emily is eminently capable – she handles big deals and small, commercial and residential - her wealth of experience in those varied settings makes her an incredible resource for any issue that comes up with your sale. We found her expertise to be particularly valuable as out-of-town buyers. We had no contacts in the area and any problem that came up, Emily not only had a person to handle it, but the best person. Financing? Emily’s got you covered. Zoning? Emily’s got you covered. Inspections? Emily’s got you covered. From handymen to architects, Emily has continued to be our go-to resource and we have been incredibly happy with all of the other professionals to which she has referred us. Another particularly valuable reason to work with Emily is that she knows everyone and every deal in town – she always had the back story, which helped us feel more confident in our decision-making."

Gerijo Matyka

“Emily, is a extremely bright and articulate, she has an incredible eye, with the ability to paint a picture and see things in a different light, she successfully translates this to her clients whether it be in the Real Estate arena or at one of her art exhibits she will capture you with her presence and engage you with her knowledge, it's a true pleasure to know her and to have worked with her.”

Darren & Jenny Shafae

This was my first experience buying a home with my husband, but my third time working with a realtor; for someone indecisive like me and moving from out of the area, Emily Kellenberger was the key to our success in purchasing not just a house but a forever home! We were moving from San Francisco to Santa Barbara in search of a more laid back lifestyle to raise our now eight (8) month old son; my husband attended UCSB, but I have never lived in Santa Barbara, so the town and home buying experience were both new to me. Emily and her team did a superior job accommodating us out-of-towners during the home search and purchasing experience. They diligently made lists and showed us multiple types of houses when I was pregnant, and then again when we just had the baby; we traveled down south with baby in tow and looked at places, which was no small feat. After several trips to SB to look at properties, we found the closest thing to a perfect house – with great value, tons of potential and also an awesome place to move into right away. We are so excited about our new home! Emily worked late hours assisting us with the paperwork and providing guidance along the way to help ensure that we were fully satisfied and knowledgeable about our purchase and the home buying process, as well as helping us obtain an awesome new asset AND home. She was also patient with us with our unique situation with the sale of our commercial property. Although we plan to stay in this home a long time, we look forward to working with (and remaining friends with) Emily and her team as well as Village Properties for our next real estate purchase!

All aspects of moving across the country were stressful yet exciting for us. The home search was no exception. Thankfully, we had Emily to help make the process considerably easier.

She is completely professional, she stays on top of all aspects of the transaction and keeps things moving along.  This was by far the easiest home escrow we have been involved in. Emily was always available to us and goes above and beyond to make things happen, and to resolve any questions or issues.  We plan on working with Emily again in the future and will refer her as well. She is a superstar!

Emily has gone above and beyond on this whole house purchasing experience!  She provided great guidance, from assessing the potential of the house to foreseeing the work that needed to be done to it, then calculating the ROI if we did the work.  She helped us contact professionals to come in and give us estimates and do reports.  She came up with great comps all across the price range and she sent us all the required documents in a timely manner. Emily is professional, courteous, patient and incredibly knowledgeable.  I will definitely be going to her again for any real estate needs I have in the future.

Emily is an incredible agent. She is very professional, thorough and knowledgeable.  She can make a complicated transaction seem so simple.  When Emily listed my house I was prepared for the transaction to take some time.  She was right on pricing my home and it sold immediately.  Emily kept in constant contact with me and explained every aspect of the transaction.  I would highly recommend Emily and her team in the future.

Emily has assisted me with two sales in Santa Barbara, both of which were smooth and successful (most importantly).  She’s highly knowledgeable of the geographic region, key influential players in the community, and specific SB market and its trends. I will continue to use her services for all future transactions in the SB area. Her pleasant and positive attitude makes working with her seem more like communicating with a friend than a realtor, speaking from experience. Its no wonder she has been met with such success. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the SB County!

As trustee of a trust that owned a residence in the Santa Barbara area (Montecito specifically), I engaged Village Properties / Emily Kellenberger first to handle the vacation rental on the property and then to sell it. The rentals went well, largely because of Emily’s suggestions and her efforts and those of her team. We subsequently made a decision to sell the property. We again listed with Village Properties because of Emily, and we’re glad we did. Emily was instrumental in our promptly realizing a good price. Throughout, she was attentive and conscientious and at all times responsive and helpful.

Emily has been my agent for both buying and selling a home. She really knows the local market and has a great feel for current prices. She is incredibly detail-oriented and makes sure that everything on the To Do list is checked off. She responds to phone calls, emails, and text messages quickly, and answers questions and provides additional information promptly. She is great to work with and if I move again I will definitely return to her.

Emily is incredible! She's very detail oriented and we had full confidence that not one thing would get missed. She is also incredibly punctual and quick to respond to calls, emails and texts. She was patient with us when we needed time to think things over and also really helped us make decisions quickly with her extensive knowledge in the local market and years of real estate. More than anything we felt so cared for throughout the entire process of selling our house, we now can't imagine ever working with someone else."
