To Whom it may Concern
I have known Kevin Schmidtchen since our days at Santa Barbara High School (Class of 88). He is an exemplary human being, world class athlete, of highest ethical and moral standard, and I am honored to call him a friend. It is no surprise to me that Kevin has become a premier Real Estate guru in the Santa Barbara County. With his attention to detail, his honorable status among his peers and community, his great negotiating skills, and his knowledge of our ever changing market…Kevin is the man you want on your side during any Real Estate transaction. When my wife, Lynn, and I found our 1st Home to buy last October, we knew Kevin would guide us through and complete the transaction. It was a complicated deal, buying a REO from Wells Fargo, given only 45 days to close, and no room for extensions or delays. Kevin hit every deadline, provided just enough pressure to our lender to get things done, and had great communication with us during this anxious time for our family. Thank You Kevin!! Sincerely, Justin and Lynn Cochrane Summerland….Thanks Justin and Lynn
Kevin was great to work with as we searched for a home from half way across the country. He listened to what needs we had and were looking for in a house and came up with many options for my wife and I to view. In addition, he provided us with the tools to look for homes on our own and was always willing to set up showings of them as well. We very much enjoyed his approach, very laid back and no pressure, as this is an important decision that we did not want to rush. In the end, we looked at many homes and ended up finding the perfect home and location at the price we had requested. Having such a knowledgeable, life-long resident was very helpful as he had great knowledge of the market and factors that drive price in Santa Barbara. Kevin was the perfect agent for us and we would give him our highest recommendation. Bill and Heather Ekeler…Bill and Heather
We found Kevin Schmidtchen via the Internet when we decided to buy a second home in SB. We were living in LA at the time and had no idea about neighborhoods here or what type of house we could find, given our budget. Boy, did we get lucky! Though we were ready for a disappointment, we were pleasantly surprised by Kevin’s expertise. Turns out that Kevin was a major asset: He took us through the steps of home purchasing, showed us different areas, communicated succinctly through the process and as a result made this daunting process a real pleasure. Kevin’s assets are: knowledge of the area, honest communication, realistic and unbiased advice, reliability, timely communication, meticulous follow-ups, availability and a calming, pleasant & professional attitude. We consider ourselves lucky to have landed Kevin as our agent, as we too have had our share of hard-to-work-with agents. Best of all, he has been a great resource to us, new in Santa Barbara, by recommending various people including handymen, painters, and electricians etc. We will definitely call on Kevin next time to either sell our house or buy another. We recommend him without any reservation. Stephanie & Joe Dixon
