Testimonials and why Team Soli makes a difference!
Tom and Jamie Safford…To the Soli Team. Jamie and I want to thank you for helping us sell our house at 587 Sugarpine Drive. When we decided to relist our property we wanted to find a listing agent who could help us properly position our investment in this declining market. To do that we needed an agent with a broad reach to buyers and a successful track record in selling properties in the Incline Village area. The Soli team was the best choice for us, and you did help us sell our property quickly and at the best price we could expect in this market. Some of the reasons we chose the Soli Team were that your team was number one in units sold for 2009 and 2010, especially in our price range, and your marketing plans included advertising in 3 regional MLS systems, numerous real estate web sites, Twitter, Facebook and others that gave us a broad reach to potential buyers and agents. We would especially like to thank Sandy Soli as our agent, for the amount of time you spent with us; for the beautiful pictures, brochures and web entries you created; for thoroughly reviewing each offer and summarizing them for us prior to sending them; for carefully advising us on price and counter offers, and for pretty much being available whenever we needed you. Over all our experience with the Soli Team was excellent and we would highly recommend you to any other buyers or sellers.
Corey & MJ Lanum…We wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for all the work and determination you put in on our behalf to get us into our first home together. When we found it on the first day of our search, I mistakenly believed the hard part was past us! We can’t imagine another agent being as thorough and dedicated to this process as you. If you ever need a reference, you know where to find us.
Rob & Barbara Doss…We were in a Short Sale situation when we met Bruce and Sandy Soli. Although the task was daunting; Bruce and Sandy took it on with optimism and vigor. Sandy handled all the problems and situations as they arose (an there were many) constantly communicating with us in a positive can-do spirit. Finally after all the fires were put out we closed. Bruce and Sandy always treated us with positive, respectful and pushing forward tenacious zeal. If it wasn’t for their professional skills and ‘never say never’ attitude, this situation would not have come out as well as it did. It is refreshing and a positive feeling knowing that professionalism, integrity and hard work are still present.
Gene & Susan Slayton…Remember when we interviewed you, you asked us what was our criteria in choosing a Realtor- We said ‘Personality & Presentation’. You earned capital ‘P’s’ on both and it’s been such a pleasure to work with you. We award you with the Gene & Susan Slayton Award of Appreciation for OVER-THE-TOP SERVICE as a Realtor, Project Manager, Counselor, Snow Shoveler, Mediator, Negotiator and Friend. As our grandkids say…’You are the BOMB!’
Bruce helped us write a contract for a bank sale property. He fully disclosed the process to us and was very knowledgeable and honest about how this type of sale worked. We did not wind up getting that house, due to some complications caused by the agent representing the bank, and at no fault of Bruce’s, but it did underscore for us the need to have knowledgeable representation from the agent you work with.
Bruce was not just a real estate agent, but a terrific and friend in guiding us through the process of finding a great condo, negotiating a fair price and doing everything possible to get to close. We recommend Bruce and Sandy to anyone interested in getting great advice and a helpful and always bright disposition.
Jiming Wang… Thanks for your help and patience. You are the most down to the earth and honest agent I have ever worked with and I always take your feedback and advice very seriously.
Al & Sue Marshall… We recently purchased a retirement home in Incline Village, NV. Bruce Soli was our agent and I wanted to let you know how thoroughly impressed with him we’ve been. Bruce’s style is one of being helpful, being interested in learning about what we wanted and finding us a home that met our needs that would delight us. He took the time to earn our trust and proved to represent our interests with complete integrity. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years, having bought and sold five homes, and have never dealt with anyone as professional, friendly and thoroughly competent as Bruce. We wound up buying the first house we saw and fell in love with, and as it turned out, our house’s selling agent was Sandy Soli! We were delighted to find equally professional and helpful service from another Soli! Both Bruce and Sandy, the Intero office staff, and the title company they recommended went out of their way to make the closing experience as easy as possible. Even after we closed, we continued to get reminders from the title company about dates when our homeowner’s association dues started and the first time our taxes needed to be paid – unheard of and much appreciated! Bruce and Sandy are real gems and if a reference is ever needed, we would be happy to share our experience with prospective customers. They are the best!
Tom & SeSe Goebel…That’s really cool, Bruce and Sandy. Keep up the good work! We’re really happy with you guys. You guys are on top of things and very creative.
Charlie Crouse …Thank you and your husband for doing such a GREAT job!
Amir Mousavi… I have to admit that working with you was the best experience among the people in this business and thanks again.
Jerry Hubbard…Debbie and I have friends in Reno who are looking for an Incline property. We told them that you two were the most energetic and knowledgeable realtors in InclineVillage, and that you would provide the best possible service at the lake.
Al & Susan Marshall… First, thank you so much for everything…we’re very pleased with the house and can’t wait to get there. You and Sandy are a great team, but we really appreciated being able to trust you – it made a huge difference since we were so far away. We’ve bought a number of properties over the years and you are by far our favorite agents! I’ve never seen such incredible service- between you and your team, you’re something special!
Todd & Grace Davidson…Sandy found us a great house very quickly and helped us through the entire process. She is professional without being stuffy, and handles everything with precision and care. She also somehow managed to find a buyer for another home we owned in what had to be the worst month of the worst market in decades. Year first hired: 2005 (hired more than once), Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity
Deb & Jer DeLauer…Thank you so much Bruce for all your hard work and preparation in helping us find a great Tahoe condo, we are so jazzed. We are really grateful to you too for helping us get in when we locked ourselves out. We will definitely refer you to anyone we know buying or selling Real Estate in your area.
Aaron & Danielle Zendner…We cannot thank you enough for all of your time, energy and peace of mind that you have given to us this past month. We all love our new home. We want you to know that we appreciate your family and the friendship that has arisen from this! Our extended local family is impressed by the way you handled our transaction. We have worked with several Realtors over the years and your service goes above and beyond what we have ever experienced.
Nathan and Erin Braun…We had been shopping for a vacation home or investment property for about 2 years. We decided on Incline Village because we absolutely love the surrounding area and the activities both summer and winter that it has to offer. We grew up in San Jose, Ca. and vacationed in Incline Village while growing up. It was our dream to buy a place in this area eventually. In searching for the right vacation home, you have to select the right Realtor first. Someone who is going to put your best interest at heart and who will take the time to provide you with information to make an educated decision. We checked out several Realtors that were recommended by several internet sites and friends. We were looking for people who possessed honesty and integrity in their business practice. Since we don’t live in Incline Village, it was difficult to get up there on a weekly basis to check out properties. We came across Sandy and Bruce through a recommendation by a Realtor from another area. Sandy was very professional in providing us a full portfolio of the existing market in Incline as well as back up statistics on previous years YOY growth in the area. Bruce was diligent at describing the conditions of each of the homes (good and bad) and both represented us as if they were buying the house themselves. It is not every day that you can feel comfortable in a transaction knowing that the people representing you have your best interest in mind. Given the fact that we have been in sales for nearly 20 years ourselves, it is uncommon to find people that you can put trust in when making an investment decision. That says a lot about the integrity, honesty and enthusiasm of Bruce and Sandy Soli. Both are fantastic to work with and take the time to truly have your best interest at heart whether buying or selling. We highly recommend their talent in our next transaction.
Michael and Shere’ McKim…Thank you so much for helping us to locate the perfect home in beautiful, Incline Village, Nevada. The time and effort that you put forth were above and beyond our expectations. Your professionalism and knowledge allowed us to comfortably purchase a home that met all of our personal needs. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you. Your positive expectations and upbeat personalities allowed us to feel relaxed and confident throughout the transaction. Your ability to be kind and assertive effectively allowed the Sellers, Selling Agent, and Home Inspectors to complete their responsibilities in a smooth and timely manner. You were always accessible and immediately responded to our questions. The trust and honesty that you possess was invaluable.We look forward to building a friendship with you and your children as we enjoy our time in Incline. Your professional and well-informed real estate services will be highly recommended to our friends and family. Thanks again for sharing your expert knowledge with us.
Richard and Gail Jones…We are so pleased with our new home. Thank you so much for all the time and attention you gave to us. We really appreciate the time you took to show us all of the property that we needed to see, both in California and Nevada. And, the area information you provided regarding schools and neighborhood amenities was very helpful in our final decision. It is always a bonus to have a smooth escrow, your ability to anticipate and problem solve kept the transaction on-track and on time. Having a knowledgeable team like you two was really a blessing considering we were out of the area. Finally, thank you for all of your time answering our many questions. We really appreciate that you were readily available and would get back to us in a timely manner. You are both great Realtors, we look forward to recommending you to our friends and seeing you when we spend time in our new home!
Mark & Ann Jenness…Sandy Soli, with assistance from her husband, Bruce, represented my husband, Mark, and me shopping for a new home in Incline Village earlier this year, then again in the sale of our previous home a couple of months later. Most recently, Sandy put me in touch with Nancy Borino in Chase’s Tahoe City Office with regard to the possible rental of our home in the event we move to Boston early next year. During our home search, Sandy listened well to our needs and narrowed down the search accordingly. While always upbeat and a pleasure to be around, she nevertheless pointed out the downside to properties, which we greatly appreciated as Buyers. On April 18th, we closed escrow on our new home. For the sale of our existing home, Sandy was very helpful when we needed outside feedback while getting the house ready to go on the market. Sandy even came over with her tools and assisted in some of the work. When the house was ready, she wasted no time in getting Realtors and their clients in there, and put on a terrific open house for the Realtors to make our house stand out on tour. We ultimately had three offers within 3 1/2 weeks and closed escrow only 7 weeks after the house was listed. In both cases, Sandy was very professional and helpful throughout the negotiating and escrow process. Particularly in the case of our home sale, Sandy’s services were invaluable, as we were in France during half of the escrow period. She really took care of everything for us–from negotiating terms and scheduling repairs, to watering plants and supervising furniture movers. Escrow closed without a hitch on July 8th. Overall, the Soli’s make a good team, though I speak most of Sandy, as she was our primary contact. Sandy is very conscientious and able. She has what it takes to make a very successful Realtor. I will strongly recommend her to friends who may need the services of a Realtor in the future.
Todd & Grace Davidson…A few years ago we spent a lot of time in search of our dream home and finally came to the realization that we had to buy a lot/tear down to build our own since we just could not find it. We spent months and months with an architect and finally decided to give up on building last Fall due to ridiculous contractors and ever escalating costs. We then decided to start looking at existing houses again and called Sandy Soli. She showed us a house with characteristics and value that we had not found in the previous 2+ years of searching. Within just a few days, we were in contract on our new home. The Soli’s were wonderful to work with, they kept us informed about everything happening with our transaction, they really went the extra mile to make sure that we had all the information we needed. There were a few issues that arose after the close of escrow (out of their control) and they followed up to make sure the issues were all addressed. We have already referred them to a family member and we will recommend them in the future.
Jonny & Lynnelle Harmer …Buying a home 600 miles away from our prior residence was certainly a challenging and stressful experience, especially buying in the Tahoe Area where the available inventory is constantly changing and at times limited. Add in the fact that my wife and I were only weeks away from her delivery date for our first daughter and I was in the process of starting a new job, and you can imagine the anxiety both my wife and I were experiencing. Bruce and Sandy were the perfect solution to bring a sense of calm and control to an otherwise hectic situation. Because they have lived in the Tahoe area most of their lives and are raising their family here, they were able to easily identify with our family’s needs and bring us a sense of direction in our search. They quickly identified the property characteristics which were high on our priority list and helped us to make the most of our house-hunting trips. Bruce and Sandy found the perfect home for our family and helped us structure an offer which prevailed over others without having to bid up the asking price on the home. Beyond helping us find the property that would become our home, they also spent hours and hours with us helping us to become acclimated to Incline Village and all it has to offer. Beyond doing what is required of a real estate professional to earn our trust and our future business, they also made sure our family felt welcomed into the community and excited about making Tahoe our home. Whether you are looking in Tahoe for a home for your family, an investment property, or a second home for weekends in the Sierra’s, Bruce and Sandy provide the experience and ability to help you make the right choice.
