Testimonials

We engaged Natasha Barringer of the Serena Group to market and sell our $3M+  home on Sobey Road in Saratoga, California. In our estimation, her performance in that role was excellent to outstanding in virtually every respect.

Her research to do a survey and assessment of market conditions and appropriate target price for our home was done thoroughly and expertly.  The materials defined and prepared for our home's marketing campaign were executed superbly.  Her preliminary staging advice and the selected staging service group's design and implementation were notably different from our personal style, yet clearly showed the home's advantages extremely well, and contributed to our ultimate successful sales result.

Throughout the process, Natasha was unstinting in her commitment of time, attention and availability to our home sales effort.  We particularly appreciated that she was always attentive to our desires and preferences in making the many decisions required in the sales process, but she had professional views on the key approaches of our plan, and she was comprehensive in justifying her positions, and diligent in urging consideration of her recommendations.  By the time of our closing date, we had great appreciation for the value of these characteristics.

We have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Natasha as a home sales agent.

Natasha is a bright and amazing individual. She is creative, focused and hard working. I have worked with 1,000's of Realtors over the years, and we were proud to specifically associate with someone of Natasha's caliber. She is a perfect fit for Sereno Group. Natasha brings a very sophisticated and progressive approach to the real estate profession. Her clients have glowing remarks about their experience and her performance time and time again. I highly recommend Natasha as an exceptional Realtor and an outstanding person. 

-Chris Trapani, CEO Sereno Group

Natasha was fabulous from start to finish...and then some.  She worked nonstop with the effortless confidence we desperately needed during a down market.  Without her we would have had a severely less than desirable outcome.  Even though we were low on the house price totem pole, Natasha provided us with efficient updates, negotiated successfully on our behalf, represented us extremely well, took the time to understand our concerns, and outright read our minds most of the time.  Trustworthy, expedient, approachable, intelligent, experienced are just a few of the words that come to mind when someone asks about Natasha.  With the utmost professionalism she kept us one step ahead of our transaction and we would gladly use her again and recommend her to anyone in a real estate transition.

-Ryan and Stacey P.

 

We're so lucky to have you as our agent, and we very much appreciate your time and efforts!

Natasha went above and beyond during our transaction.  Not only was she very responsive and attentive, she helped us to understand the full scope of the process.  We had a very unusual and difficult escrow situation that arose during the process, and she worked hard to provide guidance and support.  She exemplified patience and positivity during the process, which proved to be crucial in working through the challenges during a very stressful time. Natasha truly cares about her clients and listens to their needs.

We bought our dream house with Sereno Group agent Natasha Barringer!  

My wife and I previously had looked for a home with discouraging results.  We had a limited budget but more so we had trouble finding a real estate agent who "got" us.  (We are "gen Y" tech savvy people and the first few agents we tried had a very old school and outdated approach that didn't work for us.)  We had all but given up on our dream of home ownership.

But a friend gave us a glowing recommendation for Natasha and we decided to give it one last shot.  Immediately Natasha went into action and worked with us as a guide and partner.  Although our budget was small by Los Gatos/Campbell standards, she gave us the same attention and service as if we were multimillion dollar clients.  She worked around our schedule to meet with us in early mornings, late evenings, or whenever we were available.  She provided web resources and practical feedback that helped us narrow our search.

We now own a small but lovely single family home in downtown Campbell.  It wouldn't have been possible without Natasha and Sereno Group.

With so many real estate agents to choose from, it is difficult for home sellers to find the right one.  I am therefore thankful that I found Natasha Barringer.  Natasha provided exemplary service while always being friendly and professional.  She consistently impressed me with her knowledge and provided great staging advice to make rooms more appealing to potential buyers.  Natasha marketed my home beautifully with high-end professional photography and quality marketing material.  Her attention to detail and hard work yielded 12 offers within a week.  The property sold well over the listed price.  

From the beginning to the close of escrow, she provided information and kept me fully informed of next steps.  I cannot imagine going through the home selling experience any more effortlessly than I did.  In summary, Natasha is a wonderful person and a great agent.  I highly recommend her services.

We have had the pleasure of working with Natasha Barringer twice.  She helped us purchase our first home a few years ago, and then recently she helped us to sell that home.

As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions.  Natasha walked us through each step and explained everything thoroughly.

When it came time to sell our home, Natasha did a great job handling our listing. She is very savvy and knowledgeable about the market, and identified a good time for us to try to sell.  Natasha was on top of every detail and the whole process went very smoothly. First, she made sure our home was staged and photographed beautifully.  Then, within days of listing, she garnered us multiple offers above our listing price! 

With Natasha as our agent, we always felt that we were in good hands. She provided excellent customer service and was accessible for any questions we had. She is very helpful, patient and personable.  We look forward to working with her again!

-Sofia B.

 

Natasha was extremely helpful in my purchase of my first home. Not only did she find out about properties prior to going on the market, but she was even there for me after I purchased my home when I needed help. I highly recommend her!

-Christy F.

 

If you are looking for a realtor who understands the local market as well as your individual needs, is organized, professional and extremely personable and prepared, look no further. Our family recently purchased a home in the South Bay. Our budget did not always match our taste. Natasha and her partner Chad Hester worked patiently and seamlessly to locate the properties that were right for us. Natasha was excellent at predicting what homes might sell for.  Her preparation, organization and knowledge were vital every step of the way. This market requires perseverance. Natasha never stopped working for us. Excellent!

-Cory G.

 

We recently sold our home in the Rose Garden and purchased a new home in San Mateo.  Natasha Barringer was our realtor and we could not be more pleased with the job she did for us.  After she successfully sold our home in the Rose Garden, we had a tight timetable to find a replacement home.  Through Natasha's diligence and professionalism, we found a great house, negotiated necessary terms and repairs, and closed on time.  She made the whole experience as easy and hitch-free as possible.  It was a great pleasure working with Natasha and we would highly recommend her in the future.

-Albert P.

 

I wanted to thank you for your help...It was nothing short of all one might anticipate from a "first time buyer" experience...Thank you for getting us through it & for helping us get it done right!  We were in the best hands possible.

My wife and I just completed our second buy and first sell with Natasha as our agent- and we are more than satisfied. Not only did she comport herself in the most ethical and professional manner, but she truly empathized with us during this particularly stressful time. As is the case with many first-time buyers, our initial buying experience was daunting and scary, but Natasha guided us through the process with the patience and compassion that was ideal for us during that time.During our second buying experience, 2.5 years later, Natasha acted as both our buying and selling agent, with the purchase of our new house being contingent on the sale of our current. Despite the initially stressful circumstances beyond our control, Natasha always abated our fears, and was available for us day and night to answer questions and, sometimes more importantly, was the knowledgeable voice of reason during this time.Not only did she find our first house and our second, but she consistently walked us though the details of both transactions, keeping us abreast of new information and changes that occurred throughout the month. We feel that it was very much due to Natasha’s diligence and work ethic that we were able to both close the sale of our house and purchase the house of our dreams, which she discovered, almost simultaneously. Finally, we both felt as though Natasha enjoys what she does and the positive feedback I received from other lenders and title company agents about her friendly demeanor and skill further demonstrated her devotion to the profession. My wife and I recommend Natasha whole-heartedly, and will continue to recommend anyone seeking to buy or sell a home to have Natasha Barringer represent him or her as their agent.

I want to express my extreme satisfaction after working with Natasha Guy on the purchase of my home…Her professional manner, coupled with her personal attention in finding me just the right home, created my immediate confidence in her.  Natasha kept me well informed throughout the search and throughout the escrow process, but more importantly, I knew that I, her client, was her first priority.  Therefore, I was perfectly at ease taking her objective professional opinion and advice.

– Sarah J.

 

She made a stressful process fun, and dare I say it enjoyable.  Her professionalism was constant, and I feel so lucky that I was able to have such a competent realtor at my side through this process.  When we buy our next house we know that we want Natasha not only to help us find it, but also to list our current home.  I have already referred her to a friend, and he is now the proud owner of a condominium. I could not have asked for a smoother experience.  Any buyer would do well with Natasha in their corner.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your wonderful work and effort in helping me purchase my 1st home.  A 1st time purchase can be a nerve-wracking experience, and I’m glad that I had you on my side during this transaction…I am thrilled with my new place, but am confident that we’ll be doing business again when I look for my next home.

- Tim H.

– Alice O.

 

I am writing to you to let you know that Natasha Guy is a wonderful realtor!  She provided us with the most exceptional service by staying in constant contact with my husband and I.  She kept us feeling confident and assured throughout the entire process, and she was so patient.  I knew I could call her or email her any time to get the information we needed, even if our questions were ignorant and/or repetitive.  She treated us with respect and dignity, which isn’t always the case when you are uninformed about something.I myself am a Mortgage Loan Specialist for a credit union in San Jose, and I deal with realtors every day…Natasha is the epitome of courteous and professional behavior.  Above all, she is a wonderful representative of Coldwell Banker and a great asset to your organization.

– Karin A.

 

Just wanted to drop you a line to compliment you on the rapid and smooth sale of our home.  You really did your homework to price the unit; and it is obvious that the Open Houses you held really paid off.  Thanks again for making it so easy for us; and I'll be sure to recommend you to all of our friends and family.

I just wanted to write you a note to acknowledge the exemplary service I recently received from one of your realtors, Natasha Guy Barringer.  I was very impressed by her professionalism, poise and attention to detail throughout the home search and purchase process.  It is rare to find a realtor that is so dedicated to her clients and so thoughtful in her approach to making the whole experience a pleasant one. I was looking for a home in the south bay and didn’t have a realtor.  Natasha came highly recommended, so I contacted her and we discussed my tastes and desires for a home.  The very next day she had already found a property that she believed would be a good fit.  From the moment I stepped into the home, I felt the exact same way. Within just a few days we were writing up an offer.  Natasha was extremely organized and very proactive in her approach.  Not only did we fill out the necessary paperwork, but she went one step further, made phone calls and prepared additional documentation she felt would be attractive to the seller and would make our offer stronger.  I was pleased to see her take such initiative and show she was invested in helping me get the property I wanted. It turns out I wasn’t the only one who loved the property.  There were 11 other offers, but all the hard work Natasha put into the paperwork and the presentation of the offer really paid off.  Even though my offer wasn’t the highest, the sellers felt most confident with the detailed information she provided them and the way it was so carefully packaged and prepared.  She thought of everything, making sure the offer was clean and supported by the most credible Coldwell resources. It’s clear that Natasha really listens to her client’s needs and takes feedback to heart to ensure she finds only the very best properties.  I didn’t feel pressured at all throughout the entire process.  She was very thorough in her explanations and she patiently worked with me to ensure I was comfortable with every decision.  Even now, she continues to keep in close contact with me, providing me with the right contacts to help me make necessary improvements to the space and actively tracks the growing value of my property.  Natasha really takes pride in her work and it’s apparent that she loves what she does. I’m very appreciative for the experience I had with Natasha and have already highly recommended her and your branch to my friends and family.  Thank you encouraging such a high-level of excellence from your realtors.  It really makes a difference.

Natasha -- Have I mentioned how awesome of a realtor you have been? I really appreciate all the hard work and effort you gave me for finding my house!...THANKS!!!! Natasha was such a fabulous Realtor in finding my new house. I had to go through several offers before finally getting mine accepted, and she was patient and diligent the entire time. She is extremely organized and pays attention to the details -- certain things that I wouldn't think of. I would and have recommended her to all my friends.

-Carol Berberich

 

This year I made the decision to buy my first home and to use Natasha Barringer as my realtor.  I decided to use her because of her professional manner and efficient services that went above and beyond my expectations.  She kept me informed on a regular basis of the market conditions and new listings, and was always readily available for counsel and advice.  I felt that she was always looking after my best interests throughout the process. Her friendship and support is greatly appreciated and I will readily recommend her services to coworkers and friends.

You are truly a very professional individual and we were happy that you represented us.

-Ralph and Jill G.

 

Natasha not only helped me sell my house in San Jose, she also helped me purchase the same house ten years ago! With her knowledge and experience, she was able to strategize the best outcome with multiple offers on the sale of my house. It was the most stress free experience possible. I'd definitely recommend her.

-Carol B.

 

Natasha Barringer helped my husband and I purchase our first home. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the process. Natasha walked us through each step and answered all our questions clearly. We were impressed with her knowledge of the industry and felt confident in her expertise. She found a beautiful place for us and when we decided to make an offer, she negotiated a terrific deal. Overall, Natasha was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
