Thank you for your excellent service in selling my condo. I not only got prompt action, but the whole procedure was explained to me in written letters. I certainly will recommend your company to my friends.

Thank you so much for your loving care in handling the sale of our rental property in Leisure Village. You, Alisa and the rest of the gang were really on top of a difficult sale and really looked out for our best interest during all of the negotiations. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

There are so many things I want to thank you for the tremendous help you gave to me in selling my mother’s home in Leisure Village, that I do not know where to start. First, your excellent advice on selling, Alisa working with Leisure Village in the reworking and restoration of the sprinkler system, the yard cleaning and replanting. In addition, Alisa spending time with me to complete paperwork necessary to get house ready to close escrow that I had no idea how to complete. Every little detail was taken care of by you and your Team so efficiently and professionally that I literally had nothing to do or worry about. Your assistance in recommending contractors to complete the clean up and painting proved invaluable, the many details recommended making it more saleable, proved to be accurate as the house sold in such a short time. Also, I cannot thank you enough for giving me the names and organizations that accepted our donations of household items and furniture. With all your help, I had very little to do except sign the final papers. I sincerely appreciated you going above and beyond the call of duty for me in order to finalize the sale in a most efficient and timely manner.

I have bought and sold a number of properties and I want you to know that my experience with Barlow Williams was THE BEST. You were a godsend. I don’t know how I would have managed to get through the process without your help. You all were friendly, knowledgeable and effective, giving me expert guidance every step of the way. Again, thank you for everything.

We have just concluded our fifth more than satisfactory real estate dealings with Barlow Williams Realty. (Three home sales and two home purchases.) In the last home sale, I admit to being a bit skeptical about Dave Barlow’s suggestions concerning the upgrades to help sell a run down home, but Dave proved to be absolutely correct in securing the absolute top dollar for that home. Dave and his excellent team have always been responsive to my many telephone calls and requests, and epitomize the saying “on the ball.”

At a very difficult time in my life, after the death of my father, your entire staff made the sad prospect of selling his home a bearable process. All of you conducted yourselves with professionalism, compassion, and understanding. I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who needs real estate services.

Thanks so much for the speed and efficiency with which you listed and sold Elizabeth’s home in the Village. Your expertise and patience in helping me “wade” through all those forms was much appreciated.

Selling my home in Leisure Village through Barlow Williams Realty has been a very pleasant experience. It has been the most trouble free and least aggravating of any real estate transaction that I have been involved in. During the process, I had the opportunity to speak with all of the Barlows, all very courteous and cooperative, but I have special praise for Alisa and Dave for their super competence. Thanks for a job well done.

As a second-generation friend of the Dave Barlow Realty Company, I want to thank and commend Dave and his team for a job well done. I am a second generation, as my parents used Dave to buy their house in Leisure Village over ten years ago. My parents were always very complementary of Dave and his family, as they really cared about their customers. My dad, who is very picky, thought the world of Dave because he could talk “technical” about the house. My dad was an engineer. When you gained that respect from my dad, you are in rarefied company. My mom loved Dave’s newsletters and reports and read them thoroughly. Most of all, any transaction was the beginning of a fond relationship with the Barlow family.

Every time our family (from Rancho Palos Verdes) visited Leisure Village to see my folks, either one or both of my parents would show my wife and I literature from the Barlow’s, they were very proud of the fact that we could get to know a very special family.

About a year and half ago my father died, which left my mother alone, but the friends in the church and Leisure Village were there for her. I visited every weekend, but she knew if she needed anything Dave Barlow was there as well.

About five months ago, my mother died of cancer, and as trustee for the estate, I called Dave Barlow to help assess and represent the estate in its sale. I know that both of my parents would be pleased, (I also know they would kill me otherwise). Dave handled everything, including the Leisure Village T’s and C’s.
Although I could only be there on weekends, Dave and his team worked around my schedule. When the condo went into escrow, Dave and his team were there every step of the way. There were several stumbling blocks with the Leisure Village board, but Dave and his team worked hard to turn them into “stepping stones”.

Although it is easy to say, “that’s their job”, I am convinced that the sale of the property was indeed due to Dave and his team’s constant vigilance and the desire to create a positive atmosphere that enabled the sale. My parents were right, and I whole-heartedly agree, the best real estate company in town is Barlow Williams Realty.

A very satisfied customer and friend

Dear Dave;

I just wanted to express my appreciation to both yourself and the Barlow team for the excellent manner in which you handled the marketing and sale of my late mother's house in the Leisure Village Community of Camarillo.

Although it was in a down market, your marketing skills, as well as tact in dealing with a buyer going through personal issues, showed brightly through. I am unsure that a Realtor less skilled and grounded as yourself could have kept the deal together, as you did.

Please feel free to use me as a reference, if the need should ever arise.

Sincerely,

Richard Saeta
