Client Testimonials:

“Summer is real and does not try and over sell for her profit, she wants you to find the home of your dreams in your budget! Summer will bring up details good as well as the bad so you do not get blindsided, she is concerned more about your happiness than the sell. We met Summer by chance and we told her we were looking for a home and she found all the items we needed, she did not show us anything out of our range like most agents do, and she showed us only what had our specifics, like it must have a garage, a yard and two bedroom, she only showed us what met our needs. She actually found us our new home the first day we went out with her as she had previously looked and was very prepared before we went looking. Summer had found and shown us our new home we had been looking for all along that no other agent had.” – Walter and Kara Peterson (ATK)

“Summer is real, I trust her completely, and she is like an old friend, nothing fake about her. Summer told us we were eligible for a several hundred dollar discount that came out of her earnings that we would not have known about! It came from her pocket and she told us about it! I feel like her heart is 100% real, she cares, and she is the best agent I have ever worked with! Thank you Summer for our beautiful home that we love!” – David and Sara Weld (UCSB)

“I highly recommend Summer Knight as a realtor. She was professional, a problem-solver, responded quickly to emails and new issues, and went above and beyond to help me buy a home. I asked her to be my realtor when I was just in the beginning of my search, because I knew that Summer was well connected in this community and would find out about listings before they were even listed, so I could be one of the first to see them (in this high demand neighborhood where it is hard to buy a house because they are snatched up quickly!) She carefully listened to what I wanted and got to know me, and was sharp enough to discern traits I wanted in a house before I even realized myself what I needed. When I was “just looking”, she gave me space but continued to email me new listings. When I got more serious, she was able to match me up with sellers who hadn’t even listed their house yet (but she represented) and we were a perfect match. I got my home with minimal anxiety, thanks to Summer. She guided me through escrow and answered all my questions. She even took me to see other houses in the neighborhood with the same floor plan, so I could get ideas for remodeling, even though the transaction was a done deal and taking that extra step didn’t benefit her in any way. She truly went the extra mile to make escrow easy and, dare I say it, enjoyable!” – Dr. Dean, County of SB

“I want to say that having Summer’s service was a blessing. We started our house hunting process when I was 4 months pregnant with twins, we quickly fell in love with a bigger house before we even listed our house for sale. This left Summer a big challenge because she had to sell our house quick for us to get our dream house. Summer handled the challenge very well, she is efficient, calm, well-connected, flexible and super responsive. She followed up with all potential buyers diligently and she sold our house in a week! Summer is also very knowledgeable with home inspection and the closing process, she always had our best interest in mind and gave us a lot of good advise. Without Summer’s help, we could not have sold our old house and bought our new house in less 60 days, we would recommend Summer to anyone!” – Y. Seeley, Cottage Hospital

“We’ve been involved in buying and selling homes several times. While we’ve had some very talented real estate agents, Summer might be the most impressive. She’s one of the most personable and reliable people we’ve met. We trusted her judgment and, given the up and down nature of Santa Barbara’s real estate market, that’s really saying something. We never felt like she was rushing us to make an emotional decision. She was always calm, steady, and supportive. Plus, her response time is incredible. Our emails, phone calls, and texts were answered almost immediately.” – Dr. Winslow, Westmont College

“Our family truly loved working with Summer. I recommend her to everyone that I know. It was an intimidating process to jump into the Santa Barbara market as a young family who had never purchased a home before. Summer was not only amazing with our kids, but she also was calm and insightful when we needed her to be. She’s organized, connected, knowledgeable, sweet, and super relaxed – it doesn’t get better than that when you’re working with a realtor!” – M. Joiner, Yardi Systems
