Client Testimonials:

“​Summer is a great Realtor. I worked with her on buying a home when I moved to Goleta, CA a few years back, and I chose to work with her again when I decided to sell my home due to relocation. She is knowledgeable about what her does, patient with viewing homes and explaining paperwork, and  responsive to my inquiries. She took care of the sale of my home after I moved out of town. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home or sell one in the Santa Barbara / Goleta area.” – Jeanne Li

“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 thousand 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 & Sara Weld

“We are first-time home buyers. Summer was extremely professional, patient, friendly, and helpful. She offered great advice on negotiation, guided us through the escrow process, was very understanding and helpful when unexpected circumstances arise. We had a great experience would highly recommend Summer to anyone.”– YangYing Chu

“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 had not 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

“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!”  – Yuli Seeley

“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

“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!” – Michael Joiner

“Summer is exceptional. After meeting with various agents, Summer was the only one we felt like we could actually sit down with and have a real conversation, that there wasn’t pretense or a facade. She was a great help through the whole process, from helping us get a great deal to closing on time.  Thanks, Summer!” – Elliott Hawkes

“We are so thankful to have found Summer. Homeownership has been a dream and a goal for us for many years. Summer helped us understand the process and took time to find and show us properties that could work well for us. Summer was knowledgeable about the area, patient and responsive to our questions and concerns, and had excellent communication throughout the entire process. We would recommend her without hesitation and plan to use her for future purchases.” – Galan Moody
