We worked with Kari on the sale of our home in Phelan. It had a tricky piece to it so needed somebody with the knowledge and "spunk" to take it on. Kari took it on and handled it all like a champ.. It was semi stressful and emotional sale and move. Kari gets that. You can tear up a bit and verbalize your feelings and she is soft hearted enough to understand. but with that said, don't under estimate the "spunk". She trouble arises you can know she will hot it head on and take no prisoners. We knew Kari through our kids and liked her very much. We now can say we have worked with her and still like her. That's a win win. She is no nonsense and a joy to work with.
Kari was amazing. I specifically chose her because she knows the market here well. She’s realistic and a straight shooter. We got a solid offer within two weeks and Kari handled our 4 way contingency with ease. I highly recommend her.
Kari and Christy helped us purchase our first home in 2016. We had an excellent experience with them then. We have had an even better experience with them now as they've helped us sell that same home three years later. Without a moments notice and within 24 hours of contact they had our house listed, viewed, and full-price offer received. It was a bitter-sweet moment for us as we said goodbye to our first home. A friendly and warm relationship with our agents allowed us to approach them with any question or worry. A prompt response was only minutes away. Just like before, we fully and whole-heartedly recommend Kari and Christy for any of your listing, selling, or buying needs. Thanks again ladies, you truly are the best!
Kari and Christy arrived on the scene just as our house searching was failing due to the inability to sell our house. Dream house after Dream house slipped through our fingers from broken contingency contracts.
Together, we stumbled upon our true dream house and thanks to their professionalism and tenacity we secured a new contingency contract. Kari worked tirelessly with my selling agent to ensure our house sale made it through Escrow.
These girls are fighters, through rain storms and COVID-19, they never once slowed down to ensure we received the keys to our new home. 4 months later, my wife and I still can't believe how beautiful our home is. We would highly recommend them to anyone in the market, we even trust them
With our eldest, currently searching for his first home.
Highly recommended team. Hard working, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We bought and sold a home with Kari and Christy and we are really happy we did
We felt like we were their top priority!! Advocacy, attentiveness and knowledge beyond measure. Items and situations that we didnt think of were already addressed and covered. #experience
We are so grateful!
This combo is one of the best! These ladies don't play around when it comes to making dreams come true. From start to finish they were amazing. They had our house sold and our new home closed in barely 2 months. Couldnt have asked for a better experience during this whole process. Will defiently be sending all our family and friends their way for any real estate needs.
I can highly recommend Kari and Christy based on my recent experience in selling our rental property in the high desert. Kari was available to answer all my questions and provide any necessary guidance as needed and without hesitation. She was always quick to respond and helpful. Her knowledge of the market and lending options available were essential to the sale. Experience counts and Kari and Christy always delivered in all aspects of their services provided. I would not hesitiate to contact them again for future transactions.
This is a power team!! Knowledgeable and completely skilled X2!!!
They have walked through everything with us step by step!!
We are so blessed to have these amazing professionals, who have gone above and beyond to get us into our dream home!!
Kari is AMAZING!!! Her professionalism, perseverance and tenacity through what to me, seemed impossible obstacles, allowed me to sleep at night knowing she would have it all taken care of. She treated our home sale and purchase as if it were her own, going after only the best and staying on top of every person behind the scenes that needed nudging. Selling and purchasing a home is by far one of the most stressful events in our lives, I am grateful we had Kari on our side to navigate what seemed like a roller coaster. I could see and sense a sincere joy for us as she met us at our new home to give us the keys. Thank you Kari for all of you did!!!!!
Kari and Christy make a great team. They made selling our home easy and kept us informed all the way through.
They were quick to respond if we had any questions or concerns.
We will and have recommended them to family and friends.
Kari and Christy are fun and thoughtful to work with. They know their business, from the health and safety issues of your home to the legal ins and outs of what can be done and what cannot. They care about YOU and are sensitive to the emotional fallout of selling a home. Constant communication through text, email and phone calls, is the hallmark of their support style. We were always able reach them with questions and worries. In two weeks we had over 11-12 showings and two full price offers. There were some requests that we could not say "yes" to and they negotiated through all those for us. Because of serious family health concerns, we withdrew our home from the market. Even in that instance, they were very supportive, knowing it was the necessary thing for us. Can't go wrong with these two hard working, dedicated professionals. REALLY !!!!!
Kari and Christy were the second realtors we met with to sell our home in Hesperia. They blew us away explaining their marketing strategy and the way they would present our property. They seemed much more aggressive than the previous agent. They were going to pre-market our home and also use drones to show the whole neighborhood around our home, showing proximity of Hesperia Lake and schools etc. They had a buyer for our home, at full asking price, within 3-4 days of putting it on the market. Kari kept us apprised of every development and answered all our calls or messages promptly. Excellent work. Couldn't have asked for more.
Kari and Christy represented me for the sale of of my fathers home and I could not be happier with the performance of these two, they were timely responsive and were extremely knowledge of the area. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any one interested in selling there home. they truly are Professionals Thank you Kari and Christy.
Kari and Christy are amazing! We ran into several challenges throughout the process that they were able to overcome all of them. Great to work with, always have answers for any questions and great with communicating between us and the other agents. They both went above and beyond from the marketing to the negotiating to the close of the sale. We highly recommend Kari and Christy for your Real Estate needs.
Kari and Christy were wonderful. They were very knowledgeable and kept us informed the whole way. They made it easy to get every thing done we needed done and the house sold fast.
This is the second time I have had the pleasure of using Christy and Kari for a real estate transaction. Once to sell and this time to buy. I have nothing negative to say about either. They are friendly, fun to be around, knowledgeable, hard working and will go above and beyond to make sure you are a satisfied customer. I have had many great laughs with them and have always felt they had my best interests in mind. On a side note, they are both very attractive and have the personalities to accompany their great looks. I highly recommend them as your next real estate agents. I wouldn't use anyone else.
There are not enough words to describe how amazing it was having these two ladies in my corner. Kari and Christy went above and beyond to help me find the home I was looking for. It was obvious from the very beginning that I could put my complete trust in them. They were patient and kind throughout the entire process. Anytime I needed clarification, whether it be about the home itself or the signing of documents, they always had the answers and were great about responding quickly. Buying a home is a stressful situation, but Kari and Christy handled everything in such a way that made this process as easy and smooth as can be. If you decide to buy or sell, these are the realtors you want in your corner! You will not be disappointed.
Our experience working with Kari and Christy was phenomenal. They were both so professional and helpful. They certainly know the business and handle everything with such expertise. We would highly recommend them to you anyone looking for any real estate transactions. Truly a great experience.
I first met Kari and Christy when I listed my parents home.They made us feel comfortable and confident in having them list and represent us.From the start, they have always been there to answer every question or concern.We were well taken care of with a personal touch.Kari and Christy are an energetic, motivated duo that will be there for every step of your sale or purchase.I would not hesitate to have them list my home in the future.I thank them for everything they have done!
Kari is a very professional and reliable agent. Always answered our questions and concerns in a timely manner. Her personality makes her a very approachable person. We will definitely recommend her to anyone needing an agent.
Insightful, very helpful and well educated with their job, lively, and at the hardest of times, made it easier! Very knowledgable about the area, the market and what I was looking for and found me such an amazing home! Very thankful and appreciative for Mrs. Martinez and Mrs. Pinkerton helping me out purchasing my home! I would recommend these two to any body they made things fun and exciting !
Kari and her team made my first home buying purchase easy and stress-free. Once we found the house I wanted, Kari and her team took over and I did very little work. Kari was always available to answer any of my questions and did so very quickly. She was honest with me and made me feel like my interests were of her highest concern. Once the house was in escrow, she continuously gave me updates and some things to do until it closed. The whole process was very smooth.
We closed escrow a couple days ago, and Kari has checked in a few times to see how everything is going with the house. Kari provided a list of contacts to get the house running the way I want it to. I'm very happy with my new home and the team that got me here.
My wife and I were first time home buyers without any experience and a little overwhelmed with the thought of it. We left a message with Kari Martinez and within minutes she had returned our call. Fast forward about a month and a half and we are days away from closing on our first home. Within hours of speaking with Kari and forming our partnership we knew we could trust her and that our best interests were her priority. Without even meeting face to face she worked tirelessly to negotiate us into our home. She confronted each obstacle with poise and confidence. She made us feel like we were her only clients, while in fact I know she juggles multiple listings and is a hard working mom. She talked with us about having a good team when it comes to buying a home, well we were lucky enough to have her on ours and it made all the difference. Thank you Kari!
Kari Martinez & Christy Pinkerton are a excellent team to have working with you. They are fast motivated hard workers. I never knew selling and buying a house could be so easy I would definitely use them again!
We are extremely Grateful for Kari's expertise & tenacious work ethic. She was very patient & attentive to my very elderly parents, who needed to sale there home& buy another home suited to there current needs. Kari was able to do both in a very timely & professional way making sure each detail & request was handled correctly & kindly while watching out for there best interests. It was a easy transition because of Kari's ability & years of knowledge. Her willingness to make sure my parents found a beautiful & safe environment has meant peace of mind to our whole family. Thank You Kari!!
Kari was amazing as she represented us to sell our house. It was a difficult transaction, but she stuck with it and stayed on top of both the other agent as well as the lender and buyer. Kari marketed the house well and was responsive to all concerns and questions. She came through when we needed her, I can't recommend her enough. She's professional and works hard to get the deal done.
Kari and Christy are hands down amazing and very knowledgable. Best agents around!!! Thank you for helping us sell our house and find out forever home!
Kari is such a sweetheart. Joseph & I appreciate her so much. Kari was always there to provide help and answer any questions that were needed. Kari made our first time buying a house a memory we will never forget.
We worked with Kari in particular and she was so helpful in getting us into our first home! We purchased back in 2013 and I wanted to make certain my review was honest and deliberate, so I waited to review. We pointed out a home that was not well advertised and we told her this was the one we were interested in. She worked well with the seller and his agent, understood our concerns and worked quickly to resolve any issues or questions we had. I have to hand it to her, she managed me like a champ. I am very vocal about my concerns and questions and no matter how often I contacted her (night or day) she always responded quickly.
I appreciate the work she put into getting us our first home and I look forward to working with her again in the future!
I can not say enough good things about Kari. Very professional yet very personable. We had many repairs and questions in order to get through this sale. Kari and Christy made this tough time go very smoothly. I would highly recommend them to family and friends. We closed escrow today!! Thanks ladies :)
These Ladies are AMAZING to work with !!!! They are both very knowledgeable, professional and down right adorable !!! They take the time to fully explain everything to you, answer all questions you may have and help in anyway possible to make the escrow process go as smooth as possible. I highly recommend them to buy and sell any home!!!!
Kari was efficient when working with my husband and I in selling our first home. She handled the process professionally and she was very consistent with communication. We appreciate her diligent work and would be more than happy to recommend her as your agent when representing you and your home!
Whom it may concern , at this time i would like to express my gratitude and my appreciation on behalf of my real estate agent, Kari Martinez , from the very start of going into this venture she has been on top of her game , from the initial first contact she has made this dream of ours come true. i started with Kari asking her to stay in my budget, she did so, show us homes in nice communities, she did so, show us homes turn key ready , she did so. what can i say , she made all of that possible, she is remarkable and a asset to her company Coldwell Homes. I can not say enough about her expertise and professionalize in her field. she has made this transaction so easy for my wife and myself, and now we are in our dream home . Kari , in closing thank you and Christy for all you help , what a team!!! 5 STARS across the board , sincerely. Steven and Elizabeth Ross.
Kari Martinez and Christy Pinkerton have been a pleasure to work with! They have made the whole process of looking for a home, making an offer, and listing/selling our home easy and enjoyable. They know the business and were on top of everything! We highly recommend using them and would gladly do business with them again!
Amazing! Absolutely amazing!! They seriously out did all expectations! We were probably the most annoying clients with all the questions and inquiring we did, bugging them till late or super early and they seriously got back to us pretty darn fast if not right away with every single question we had! We felt they represented and looked out for us in the best possible way and helped us find our perfect home, even when it got tough!! Seriously, amazing girls! We were so happy we had them as our realtors!! When others said people didn't usually like contingent offers, Karie and Christy totally took on the challenge happily! And sure enough sold our home in 7 days and we opened escrow on another the next week!!! We were not left in the dark at any point in the process in fact, we were even updated in each hour some days!!! I could go on and on but our experience with them was so wonderful! They made buying a new home enjoyable!!! Would recommend them to anyone, especially family and friends who want a nice smooth process!!
Kari and Christy were great to work with. This team was very professional and responded immediately to any questions. Their years of experience and reputation in the business is one reason I chose them for my listing.
I had three offers the first day they listed my house. They are also handling the purchase of my new home.
I would recommend Kari Martinez and Christy Pinkerton to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Kari is amazing! We have been interested in the property next to our existing home for over a year. We were unable to contact the owners, and they were never outside for us to talk to. After we dealt with a couple other realtors (unsuccessfully) she was able to get in contact with them, and negotiated us a great price. We will definitely refer her to any of our friends and family
Thank you for giving our team the opportunity to assist you. We appreciate the business and referrals. Cheers! The Sweetness & Substance Real Estate Team
Best team EVER! Every phone call, text and email were answered quickly and efficiently. These ladies responded everyday all day, morning or night, both worked to assist every need. I would recommend family and friends to Kari and Christy!
We are grateful for this review and are beyond excited for you both. Your home is absolutely beautiful and you both deserve every bit of it. Great work! Cheers!
Kari and Christy made the process of buying my first home a great experience. They were always quick to respond to questions and very helpful. I will recommend them to friends.
We couldn't be happier to have found Kari through Zillow. She has been amazing every step of the way, and we've had such a seamless purchase. It's been great knowing that she was always available to us for anything we needed or any question, big or small, we had. We highly recommend her expertise to anyone looking to buy to sell a home. Another thing we highly appreciated was that not only did she take care of all our needs on the purchase of our home, but she also has a network of professionals that she works with that is able to help us in several areas outside of the purchase. It has been a complete pleasure to have had her guiding us on our journey.
We not only appreciate your business, but most importantly the friendship that has been gained in the process. Having clients like you are a true blessing. You two have been absolutely wonderful. Christy and I are both overjoyed to be able to assist you in the purchase of your beautiful new home. Cheers!
I chose Kari & Christy as my realtors based on the initial meeting we had regarding listing my mothers home after she had passed away. Kari came well prepared with comps, other information and a plan to sell the home. She gave some great advice based on her experience on things I could do and expect to do along the way. Kari was very understanding to my family's situation and immediately took charge. We had a full price offer the first day it was listed. The 30 day escrow period was flawless with Kari & Christie communicating every issue that came up. With every issue that came up they included a plan of action to overcome the hurdle and stay on point. I have bought and sold many homes in my lifetime and without question this experience was the best. I would never hesitate to have them help me with another real estate transaction in the future. I will recommend them to family and friends with confidence.
It can be overwhelming choosing a Real Estate Agent in todays market and Christy and I would like to thank you, along with your family for entrusting us to help you complete your Real Estate transaction. We appreciate you taking the time to submit your experience and are grateful to have gained your business and a long lasting relationship. Cheers! The Sweetness & Substance Team
Christy and Kari were a wonderful experience. They were very helpful in anything and everything that was needed. Their expertise was beyond wonderful. They went above and beyond to get me in the house I bought. They are highly recommended and if I ever have to buy a house again (pray to God I don't), I will definitely utilize them again. Thank you guys so much for everything you did, and going out of your way to get things done.
Mr. Moody, Thank you for taking the time to send in a review. Kari and I appreciate it so much. Working with you was such a pleasure. I cant wait to see your new home when you guys get all settled. Congratulations!!! The Sweetness and Substance Real Estate Team!!
Our house was being rebuilt after a fire and we needed to sell it quickly. We live 1200 miles away and my husband was working overseas. After several delays in the rebuild process, Kari had the house on the market the minute it was ready. We accepted a full offer the next day. She helped us get through a frustrating lengthy escrow process due to complications of selling a new build as well as issues on the buyers side. The most helpful things during the whole process were Kari's great communication and availability, and also being able to complete almost all the paperwork through email and digital signatures, making selling from a long distance so much easier! I would highly recommend her, especially to anyone who is buying or selling a house from long distance.
I was very lucky to find Christy! I needed to sell my father's home in Victorville. Christy was instrumental in the quick selling of the house for the asking price. She returned my phone calls and emails quickly with detailed responses. I would definitely recommend Christy!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. It is very much appreciated. Working with clients like you make us enjoy our job even more. It was a pleasure.
This was an out-of state sale and Christy Pinkerton handled the entire process in a efficient and professional manner. It was a pleasure dealing with Christine and I would certainly recommend her to others.
Thank you so much taking the time to post a review. Its very much appreciated. You guys were such a pleasure to work with and hope to work with you guys again. The Sweetness and Substance Real Estate Team
I am pleased with the results that Kari Martinez helped produce. I sold 2 houses with Kari and although they had their difficulties, Kari did well keeping the sales moving. She was reasonably aggressive and negotiated well to gain good deals. I did give her 4 stars for local knowledge since I disagreed with her suggested listing price and we successfully sold the house for $10k more than she suggested. I also gave 4 stars for process expertise. Although I do believe she is an expert at the process, I rapidly learned the phrase "we're good on the paperwork" really means "we're good until the next surprise form which needs to be signed sooner than immediately." But I think the escrow company and buying agents also share in that chaos. Overall, I would happily recommend Kari and think she does very well navigating the potentially chaotic mess involved with selling a home.
Mr. Muller,Thank you for taking the time out of your day and submitting a review. I appreciate your business and am thankful for the two homes we were able to close. Just to touch on the list price a bit. The suggested list price is based off of the condition of the property prior to obtaining the listing along with the comparable properties in the surrounding area. As far as "We're good on the paperwork" was where we were at in that moment in the transaction. In the process of selling or buying a property you are at the mercy of not only the other agent, but other entities as well. That being said, the paperwork was presented when needed or when received. I am happy to hear you understand that were are at the mercy of many and again Thank You for your business.
The team of Kari and Christy are the most professional agents in the high desert. I highly recommend their services. They are simply the best. They are both the most knowledgable you will ever find.
Kari has made the sale of our house absolutely flawless, and we didn't make it easy on her (We live across the country and the house was occupied by a tenant throughout the process). She is always quick to respond to my texts/emails/calls and has kept us in the loop throughout the process. This is the first time we've sold a house and it was surprisingly easy with Kari's help. We really couldn't be more pleased with the experience. If you're considering hiring her as your agent, you won't be disappointed! Thank you so much Kari!
Having clients such as yourself make selling a home easy as pie. There are many agents to choose from and we very thankful and appreciative you put your faith in us. Cheers! The Sweetness & Substance Real Estate Team
Christy and Kari went above and beyond too help us with the sell of our house. They were absolutely amazing! We highly recommend her:) they were always available when ever needed day or night!
It was our pleasure. Thank you for putting your trust in us and helping you sell your greatest asset. Cheers! The Sweetness & Substance Real Estate Team
