Natasha is the absolute best real estate agent!
She was with us when we bought our first house and again this summer when, due to the addition of another small family member, we need to find a larger abode. Natasha is always available and never pushy. We never felt pushed to make a decision; she always presented the facts and gave honest opinions that ultimately help us make confident choices in the process. We could not have been happier with our new house!
As for the old one, she knew exactly who to contact to get things fixed up, staged and shown to other agents and prospective buyers. We have no doubt that it sold so quickly due to Natasha's expertise. It bears repeating again: Natasha is the BEST and you will not be sorry to have her help you find or sell a home!
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, she did a great job handling our listing. Natasha 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!
Natasha Barringer came highly recommended from more than one friend.
With the high praise, I decided to work with her to sell my home in San Jose and purchase another home. Natasha proved to be highly competent and excellent at her work. I was not familiar with the process for selling a home, or purchasing one on my own. Natasha was able to effectively support and guide me through the process, answering every question I had and providing clarity when needed.
Not only did Natasha demonstrate a professional working knowledge of realty, but she was also very organized, solutions-oriented and I was always able to get a hold of her when needed with rapid response time. She made sure that selling my home and buying a new one was a painless process, and I felt supported every step of the way.
Natasha is a friendly, helpful and wonderful realtor and I can not give enough praise for the excellent work she does. I will always recommend her to friends and family because she is simply the best!
This review of Natasha is long overdue.
Simply put, she is absolutely amazing! She has handled 5 real estate transactions for us (one rental property, 4 homes buy and sell), and not only did she make the experience smooth, but she was also a rock of stability for me during some tense times in dealing with estate issues and difficult buyers/sellers! Not only that, but she kinda made a miracle happen for us in terms of our current home - a home that we thought was out of our reach but due to her personal connections and agent savvy, we have this fabulous home that is the fulfillment of a dream for us. I could go on and on.... Definitely 5 stars for Natasha!
I would strongly recommend Natasha.
She was our agent for both a sale and purchase transaction. We could not have had a better experience buying and selling a home, especially in this market.
Natasha has a strong pool of stagers, photographers, and other agents to draw on. She made recommendations regarding staging, which we followed, and sold our house in a week for significantly over our asking price. She kept us informed the whole way via phone and text messages and was present when she needed to be to ensure a smooth sale. She was always available and always returned our calls and texts. We received multiple offers on our home, which she helped us evaluate for a successful sale.
This is where Natasha really distinguished herself. We bought a home, offering under asking price. The home had multiple offers and Natasha was able to influence the seller to take our offer. We ultimately paid below asking price in a very hot market on the second house we saw.
We also recommended Natasha to a friend who had trouble selling a home two years ago. Natasha helped our friends sell their home for more than they expected to get.
Natasha is everything you want in a realtor:
Knowledgeable, connected, ethical, on top of local markets, understanding of your needs and preferences, willing to put in as much time as it takes to find the right home for you, and truly a pleasure to work with. In short, she is a gem. No agent will work harder, and make the process of buying or selling more enjoyable, than Natasha. She helped me find the perfect house, and continues to go above and beyond with advice and help whenever the need arises. I cannot recommend Natasha highly enough--look no further if you are buying or selling!
Natasha not only helped me sell my house in San Jose, she also helped me purchase the same house.
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.
This degree of service is why we have already referred friends and family to her
After being represented poorly by a different realtor during the purchase of our first home in Willow Glen, we began asking friends and colleagues for personal recommendations as we considered a move. Based on two separate referrals we decided to work with Natasha.
Natasha is highly knowledgeable about the local market and consequently was able to put together and execute a plan that netted us hundreds of thousands of dollars above our asking price. She also found us a new home that met all of our requirements and then some! However, Natasha's services didn't end when we closed on our new home. Instead she worked closely with the listing agent to resolve some concerns we raised and even recently took the time to send us second copies of our closing docs for the sale of our previous home and purchase of our new home for tax purposes.
This degree of service is why we have already referred friends and family to her for their realty needs and will continue to do so in the future.
We engaged Natasha Barringer of the Serena Group to market and sell our $3M+ home
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.
We started working with Natasha 12 years ago when purchasing our first home.
She came highly recommended by several friends who had used her in the past. She took the time to attend many open houses during an extremely competitive market period until we found a home that met our criteria.
We were recently in the market to upgrade our home that we had outgrown. Her efforts 12 years ago made the decision to employ her services an easy one. Natasha took the time to walk through our home on several occasions to help us prepare for the selling process. Each time recommendations were made on easy fixes to help our home show as well as possible. Upon completion of the open house Natasha spent several hours going over the multiple offers that had come in and explaining the pros and cons of each offer. Natasha guided us through the negotiation process and took our concerns into account. She was open to listen to our ideas and explained why or why not the idea should be incorporated in the negotiations. Upon our acceptance of an offer Natasha was on the case when the buyer and his agent raised some concerns and was there to act as a liaison between us and the buyer's agent to bring all issues to resolution.
Now came the time to buy during a fast market. Natasha took our wants and needs into account, including requirements for our children, maintaining a list of homes that met our requirements that was updated as new homes came on the market. When we saw something we liked she gave advice as to what the expected final selling price might be. This was significant in a market in which bids were often significantly higher than the asking prices. Her expertise in the market allowed us to zero in on homes that we liked and would be within our comfort zone in terms of price and location. Natasha was there for us completing a walkthrough of the home we are now in, she was there to arrange and attend the home inspection, and was there for us during the offer and negotiations making sure that our interests were protected along the way. The family that we bought from even commented on how professional, thorough and competent she was.
We have, and will continue to, recommend Natasha to friends and family and have received nothing but thanks from friends who used her. If you are looking for a great agent to represent you, you have found your match with Natasha.
