Mr. Lyng,We recently both sold and bought a home with the exceptional assistance of Kelley Youmans of David Lyng Real Estate in Santa Cruz Ca. After interviewing several other real estate associates we selected Kelley, because she impressed us as possessing the right combination of Experience, temperament and assertiveness. We wanted an aggressive negotiator coupled with a savvy sense of timing and personal charm.Kelley not only met our expectation but delighted us with her ability to move rapidly while remaining calm and unruffled. Given the stress of selling a house in a sellers’ market and buying a house in a low inventory environment we needed a composed hand to steer the ship. Kelley advised us on pricing, timing, curb appeal, and staging and we believe that her advice added significantly to our multiple offers at full price in just two weeks.Additionally, she was able to find us a home to purchase which met our requirements perfectly and just to add magic to the whole experience she closed both deals within 2 weeks of each other and was able to push through escrow in 3 weeks which must be an all-time speed record. Finally she was a real pro in negotiating price, reimbursements and navigating us through the paper blizzard.We moved into our new home without a transition gap and credit Kelley with making it happen for us in a manner that was both professional and compassionate.I cannot more highly recommend Kelley as a real estate broker and project manager.I will refer friends, colleagues and associates to Kelley for their Real Estate needs and want to thank both Kelley and David Lyng Real Estate for an outstanding experience in selling and buying a home.(Andrew & Peggy B)Sr. Director, Strategic Marketing

The market in our area for an investment property is really tough.

She is 110% professional, dedicated, and communicative - this was our first investment property purchase and she helped us understand what we needed to do every step of the way.If you're looking for a great realtor, be sure to choose Kelley! She is top notch.Best Regards,Shanta B., & Yigal U. - Tech Industry

Dear Mr. Lyng:"It is with great pleasure that I get to write this first letter from our new home. The move is done, we are in our first home in California and we realize the 101 things we need to do now that we are here. We are looking forward to the tasks and the challenges with greater spirit and confidence thanks to the professionalism and dedication we enjoyed through all stages of our transaction with Kelley Youmans. At all times through our search we felt Kelley was on our side and was constantly showing us properties as soon as or even before they came onto the Market. When we finally settled on a property Kelley's thoroughness and preparation to our offer submittal in a multi-offer situation set us apart and we really appreciated her pitching our offer in person on our behalf. She nailed it!We have been telling our friends and colleagues about our experience and we will be recommending Kelley Youmans from David Lyng Real Estate, to anyone we know buying or selling property in the area."Craig and Lynne T, Scotts Valley, CACorporate Manager

Mr. Lyng:We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation and complete satisfaction with the phenomenal service and professionalism of our real estate agent, Kelley Youmans. Since we were moving to the area from Southern California, much of our home search was conducted via telephone conversations and sporadic trips to Santa Cruz County to view properties over a four-month period. During this time, it was essential to deal with an agent with the organizational skills to coordinate our visits with as many home showings as possible, and the flexibility to incorporate last-minute additions to our tours as they appeared (and even in some cases before they appeared) on the MLS. Despite the fact that her schedule was undoubtedly busy, and that she was working with multiple other clients, our invariable impression was that we had a personal friend and advocate working diligently on our behalf. Kelley helped us in countless ways—not only with things that we asked of her, but also with things that we needed but did not know enough to ask. Kelley is the most conscientious and reliable agent with whom we have ever worked. Throughout the process of purchasing our home, we knew that we could contact her at any time with a question or concern, and that she would either have the answer for us immediately, or find out the answer before the day was through. She is a strong and persistent negotiator—a skill that was largely responsible for allowing us to close the deal on the house that we truly wanted. For most people, however, the process of purchasing or selling a home is not only a business transaction, but also an emotional investment as well. What makes Kelley Youmans a truly great agent is that she understands this implicitly. She treated us with kindness and respect at all times. She was patient and supportive of our decision-making process, providing information and advice without making us feel pressured in any way. Moreover, it was obvious that she was primarily concerned with our satisfaction and happiness with the purchase of a home that we truly connected with, rather than simply trying to sell us a property as quickly as possible. It is this attention and sensitivity to the human factor of the business of real estate that is one of her strongest qualities.We truly appreciate her exemplary service, will recommend her without reservation to friends and relatives in search of an exceptional agent, and look forward to working with her in the future as the opportunity arises.

July 2016Dear Mr. Lyng,We wanted to make sure we had the opportunity to share with you our experience with one of your agents, Kelley Youmans. We met Kelley at an open house approximately one year ago. At this time we were just thinking about selling our vacation Townhouse in Aptos and purchasing a single family home somewhere in the central coast. Kelley made such a great impression on us that day that when we decided to move forward with this plan we thought of her immediately!In March 2016 Kelley listed our Townhouse in Aptos and while at the same time showed us multiple single family homes all over Santa Cruz County. As our primary residence is in Lodi, California we appreciated the fact that she was available to us both day and night via telephone, text, email and of course in person whenever we could get to town. Our Townhouse sold a month later in April 2016.On May 4, 2016 we then closed escrow on the beautiful Capitola home Kelley found for us! As there were multiple offers on this property she had to fight with all she had to get our offer accepted. We so appreciated her persistence and drive!Throughout this very stressful process, Kelley was professional, supportive, available, knowledeable and reassuring. To this day she remains a resource for us, which means the world to us "out of towners."You have a true gem in this Realtor and we greatly appreciate her dedication to her profession. It is apparent that this is not just a job to Kelley but rather her true passion!Sincerley,Kathy and Wendy, Lodi Ranch Winery; Social WorkersCapitola, CA
