Summer made our real estate transaction a breeze. Her in-depth knowledge of the real estate market landed us the home of our dreams! I would highly suggest Summer to anyone looking to sell or buy, and we look forward to working with her in the future.
Summer assisted us in finding the home of our dreams. In an expedient and professional manner, Summer was able to locate and share with us a wide variety of properties that fit our criteria. Having grown up in our desired area (the Mountain View/Dos Pueblos School District), Summer shared valuable insights and was able to offer suggestions that helped us hone our search. Her consistent drive to meeting our family’s needs was evidenced through her attention to detail, her availability, and her willingness to take the time to really listen to us. Summer’s integrity, professionalism, and positive outlook make her a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Summer Knight for any of your real estate needs.
My husband and I were very impressed and extremely satisfied with our experience with Summer.
Moving to a new city and trying to plan a wedding is stressful enough, without trying to buy a home also! Her patience and knowledge of Santa Barbara in showing us many properties was incredible. I also appreciated her hand holding through the loan and escrow process, explaining every detail and handling it all with such thoroughness.
Summer was absolutley wonderful to work with. She listened very closely and was genuinely interested in finding my wife and I the right home. We had very difficult criteria and were also changing our criteria as we worked through the process. Summer was very accomodating and adapted well to our changing requests. She is a life long Santa Barbara local who is very knowledgeable about the area. Her responsiveness was immediate and she was very willing to work around our schedules. I would highly recommend Summer. Thanks Summer! -JR
Summer was an absolute pro to work with, and she’s a delightful person. Totally trustworthy, genuine and experienced. A great listener who has a talent for getting to know you and helping you find your perfect fit. Thanks Summer!
I got to know Summer following the situation I had with my property. I received her CV through mail along with tens of others. Her CV was outstanding, comprehensive, presentable, interesting, clear and complete. I found her even more knowledgeable, sincere, professional and patient after I met her. She is on time, goes out of her way to get the work done. She is on the top of the subject on hand and has provided useful information to me for making better decisions. We have been working together in the last few months and haven’t seen any thing to change my mind about the understanding I have had from her since I met her. I highly recommend Summer to people who are are precise, know what they want and are looking for an outstanding agent. Sara
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.
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! In talking with her she spoke of a single mother she was looking so hard for a home for her and 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!
Summer is truly the best! She knows the SB/Goleta area very well and helped us to find the perfect home! She was organized, on-time, thoughtful and caring throughout the entire process. We always felt she was answering our questions honestly as an agent and as an adviser. She made the process so much easier for us, and we are forever grateful!
Summer Knight was very easy to work with, and demonstrated impressive knowledge of the real estate market. I was especially impressed with her use of current technologies including “docusign” and “dropbox” to expedite the process of getting our house sold. It was a smooth process from start to finish.
Summer is the best! She is patient, efficient, and very flexible! With my husband working evenings and me working days, she was able to meet with us on weekends and after hours to show us properties and do paperwork. I would highly recommend Summer.
I have purchased a number of properties in multiple states. Summer Knight is by the the finest agent I have ever dealt with. She has a comprehensive understanding of the local real estate market. She was able to guide us through the process of selecting the appropriate neighborhood to move to. She has excellent technical skill and leaves no details undone and is exceedingly efficient in the process. She was able to negotiate a very favorable deal for us in a quite hot market. Most importantly she is a pleasure to work with. Her integrity is impeccable. After closing she continued to help us with the various loose ends of setting up the house. I strongly recommend her.
Summer Knight blew away our expectations and took personal interest in our Sale and Purchase to a whole new level. We could not have been happier with our choice to use Summer. Her local knowledge and highly focused attention to details was exceptional. Summer genuinely cares about her clients in every way. Truly a professional and pleasure to work with.
Summer is everything you want and need in a real estate agent. She was a pleasure to deal with during the house-hunting process, was professional, knowledgeable and tenacious in handling negotiations up to closing, and has continued to be a tremendous help after the closing, by helping to facilitate work that had to be done on the house. I have bought a number of houses over the years, and Summer is the best real estate agent I have dealt with (and a super-nice person!). I recommend her with no reservations.
Summer was easy and comfortable to connect with. She was most responsive to our needs and the delicate process. I appreciated that she was timely and dependable. I highly recommend her.
We contacted Summer through a Zillow ad And were not disappointed. She demonstrated skill during the negotiations; was able to work with the selling agent to get the best possible price under current market conditions. During escrow she was ALWAYS available and offered expert, professional advise. We also had a very difficult escrow due to new lending laws and the conditions of the property. She stepped up and work tirelessly to close the deal. She is a ten +++.
Summer did a great job selling our house in a difficult market. She was always available even when on vacation. Our buyers made initial contact at an open house so we were please that Summer made the additional effort to do that. We would definitely recommend her to friends.
Summer was very helpful to us in buying our first house. She has strong connections in Santa Barbara and Goleta, and her strong partnership with Emily Termond meant that somebody was always available to help us.
Summer was wonderful to work with throughout my house hunting and buying experience. She listened to me well and understood quickly what I was looking for. She never suggested anything beyond my stated price range and gave me time and latitude to determine for myself what would best suit my needs. I am so grateful to have had her support and assistance! I always felt that her highest priority was for me to find a home that I would love, and I did! I appreciated having her expertise to draw upon, but even more than that, I appreciated getting to know and associating with such a nice, attentive,thoughtful person.
Summer was delightful to work with when we started to look for a house in the Santa Barbara area from our home in Minnesota – it is hard enough to stay on top of the market in this area and not being present made it even more of a challenge. Summer stayed on top of the market and she presented information as soon as it was available so we never missed a beat and had a crack at all the homes that came available. She had a nice website that kept us informed 24/7 and responded to questions within hours – great job. We finally found a home and purchased it and could not have done this without Summer’s professional expertise.
When I first met Summer Knight, there was an immediate rapport. She was very giving of her time and thorough in all aspects of the process. She returned calls, emails, texts immediately and made time for my needs. She was super detail oriented in our inspections. Buying a home is emotional and stressful and Summer was very calm throughout! She worked very well with the seller to the point of completing on her own a few last minute items which had gotten overlooked. I would highly recommend Summer as a professional, competent agent. She will put a buyer at ease throughout all the steps it requires to turn a dream into reality.
Summer kept us to our budget, showed us a range of properties with no pressure, and negotiated our sale with ease. The entire process was relatively quick and easy.
We found Summer online and chose her to help us find a new home based on her expertise in Santa Barbra and positive reviews. We had a wonderful experience and can’t imagine working with anyone else. We are not from Santa Barbara, but Summer was an excellent guide to the real estate market and area. Summer was very attentive and easy to work with, her positive attitude made each step of the purchase process a good experience.
Summer was wonderful to work with. She was patient, knowledgable and very helpful in our house hunting process. We were happy to have her on our side, especially since this was our first time buying a home together. We really appreciate how supportive, responsive and insightful she was. She was never pushy; instead she offered us a great balance of honest feedback and thoughtful advice. We have already referred her to our friends and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect home! Thank you Summer, we love our new place! – Lenka & Mike
It was a pleasure to work with Summer in selling our home. She was always on top of the details and provided thorough feedback throughout the process. She is very familiar with Santa Barbara and the current activity on the real estate market. I would definitely recommend her.
It was a relief to work with such professional & personable Realtors. I always knew they would make things work out for us & for the best, no matter what! Buying and selling homes is incredibly stressful & exciting all at the same time; it was so comforting to have Summer & Emily by our side…I put my 100 percent trust in their expertise. And it paid off…When things got tough, they got tougher. When things got complicated, they simplified. And when everything worked out, they were genuinely happy for us!
Dear Summer and Emile As you know I purchased my Santa Barbara home 32 years ago. That means that I have been out of touch in terms of the real estate market, methods, values, and selling techniques for 32 years. I went into this venture (selling my home) with a great deal of apprehension. I started out frazzled, but your complete professionalism and approach dispelled my fears on a daily basis. The two of you became my Dream Team, you both went wayyyyy above and beyond! As you know I left the Santa Barbara area. Sadly I cannot take you two with me, so any new agent that I enlist will have some very large shoes to fill. Thank you both ever so much!!!!! Brigitte
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!
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.
We really recommend Summer. She’s an exemplary professional in every way.
When it came time to sell my house of 17 years, Summer Knight was one several agents I wanted to consider. As soon as I met with her, I knew she was the right agent for me. Throughout my sale, Summer was the consummate professional — discussing every aspect of the process with me, staying on top of every detail, and keeping me apprised every step along the way. But more than that, she was kind, considerate, responsive, good-natured, and patient throughout! Those attributes are so important during a time that can be hectic and stressful. I truly cannot say enough good things about Summer Knight. Every text, phone call, and email I sent her was answered quickly. Not long into the sales process I asked her to be the agent for the purchase of my next home as well. She handled that transaction with the same professionalism, attention to detail, and consideration as she did the sale of my house. If I were ever in the position of buying or selling again, I would absolutely want Summer to be my agent. I recommend her to any seller or buyer unconditionally!
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!
I’ve known Summer& Emily personally for many years, but only recently had the pleasure of working with them professionally. We’ve purchased and sold multiple homes in the past and this had to be one of the most positive real estate experiences we’ve had. They are incredibly well versed in every aspect of the negotiations, contracts, real estate laws and are were able to walk us through those details in a way that made everything clear and comfortable to us. I also saw them adjust their negotiation style based on who they were dealing with as they were able to quickly read each person’s style. Summer and Emily each have different strengths and not only compliment each other’s skills, but work together beautifully. It was really nice having two agents to call, too! They sold our house so quickly and were unbelievably patient as we look for a home to purchase. We weren’t sure what we wanted and they helped us get to know multiple neighborhoods. They are also very connected to other agents in the area and always knew who to call when we expressed an interest in different areas of Santa Barbara. Finally, not only are they excellent agents, they are really enjoyable to be around. You spend a lot of time with your agents and it’s nice to spend time with two personable, fun and smart women. I highly recommend Summer Knight and Emily Termond!
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!
I give Summer 5 stars!!! She was super helpful in helping me with my property search in Santa Barbara and very responsive. And when it started to look like I was going to have to expand my search to Ventura, she was very forthright in telling me she did not know that market and asked if she could help me find someone in that area. THAT is integrity!
Summer was absolutely amazing in all respects. She has an incredible knowledge of the area, thus found us exactly what we were looking for. My husband and I highly appreciated her negotiating skills. We feel that the price we paid made our home purchase a great investment. All of our communications were handled quickly and very efficiently. We would highly recommend her to anyone and would use her again without hesitation.
Summer patiently helped us for almost three years while we searched for the perfect house. She was always responsive, supportive, and trustworthy. A few things we really appreciated about Summer were that she never pressured us, she always followed up on questions and requests, and she seemed to provide the same high-level service no matter what your price range. She was a pleasure to work with!
Summer was a pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the local market. We found a home in our budget and the process was relatively quick and easy. She has been a valuable resource in our move to Santa Barbara.
Summer was always very responsive, helpful and professional. Being far from the property, she offered to be there if needed at the house to coordinate things. I would highly recommend her as a realtor!
Working with Summer was great! With the addition of twins to our family, we had to get into a bigger home and quick. We had found the perfect home for our growing family, but had to act fast. Within a couple days our house was on the market and she was holding open houses. Due to her tireless work and dedication we were able to sell our house and get into our first choice. One thing we really appreciate about her is her punctuality and ease with which we could talk to her about any concern. We were never left waiting or wondering. She is dependable, very professional and knowledgeable, I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Summer is a total pro. We particularly liked her customer-centric focus combined with efficiency – often difficult to find in an agent. She has impressive orchestration skills in coordinating the back office aspects of the sell side of the transaction. At the same time she is hands-on and engaged. An added bonus is her quality network of home professionals. She is tech savvy and “paper” savvy with all of the paper procedures that still dominate the real estate scene. Her expertise made the entire experience a pleasure. Thank you, Summer.
From the very first meeting, Summer impressed us with her knowledge and professionalism. It took us almost a year to find our new home and with Summer’s contacts and savvy, we were able to find a buyer for our old home to make our offer sweet enough to win in this tough market. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and highly recommend Summer as someone who will partner with you in your search for the perfect home for you and your family’s needs.
Summer was on top of every aspect of this purchase, from beginning to end. She truly was an outstanding representative of our family through this entire process and we are extremely grateful and happy with her work. Summer pays extreme attention to all of the details, and delivers on her commitments. She is a professional that we recommend, without hesitation. Thanks for taking care of us!!
We interviewed 12 of the local agents over a period of 1 year and followed their open houses. We had no doubts about choosing Summer and her partner Emily after that. The process of selling a house after living in it for 36 years had many challenges that Summer and Emily help us with. They were responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, and made my wife comfortable through this process. I felt completely confident when I asked them a question that that I could act on their recommendation, and there were several very important moments.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, and accessible. We were very pleased with her real estate breadth of knowledge and she provided timely and useful information to all of our questions. We would highly recommend Summer to efficiently handle your real estate needs.
I just updated this review because I accidentally gave Summer 3 stars instead of 5. She deserves 6! Summer was our buyers’ agent. She is responsive, reliable, organized, well-connected, ethical, professional, and pleasant to work with. She was always available when we needed her and didn’t let anything fall through the cracks. Summer grew up and raised her own family in town and intimately knows the community and understands the various micro markets in the area. She is aware of properties not even listed yet, which is a great advantage in such a competitive market, especially the neighborhood in which we purchased. We avoided a bidding war by placing an offer on a house not yet on the market. We particularly appreciated how trustworthy Summer is. Coming from out of state we didn’t have a good feel for pricing. She kept us from overpaying for properties that were priced too high and even encouraged us to wait when she knew a house wasn’t right for us, even though a speedy purchase would have benefited her. She was a dual agent for our purchase which I initially feared was a conflict of interest. But she and her partner Emily Termond demonstrated that the arrangement can be carried out in an ethical way that benefits both parties. She is an excellent mediator. Our entire transaction went smoother than I thought possible. Summer and Emily were also fun to work with while always maintaining appropriate professionalism. They deserve the excellent reputation they have in town. I highly recommend them.
Summer was wonderful to work with…she made the buying process simple and stress free. My wife and I were so nervous about buying a house but Summer put us at ease. This was also our first home purchase and took us through the process step by step. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
We had great experience with Summer. She is professional, trustful and delightful to work with. She gave us good suggestions and encouraged us to make reasonable price offer, not pushing us to price up. She is super patient with us to find the right property. She made the purchase process super easy for us. She provided us a lot of valuable information and great contacts for local contractors. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. If we will purchase or sell our house again, I will contact Summer as our agent for sure.
Summer is everything we wanted in a realtor. She was incredibly knowledgable, professional, patient, responsive, proactive and thoughtful. It was clear that her priority was to match us with the house that was best suited for us no matter how long it took. She was great at listening to what we liked and what we didn’t like about the homes we looked at. We actually weren’t planning to even look at the house we ended up buying (even though we’d seen the listing) but Summer strongly suggested that we go take a look because she felt it was a great home for us – and she was absolutely right! We could not be happier with how everything turned out. She negotiated the sale flawlessly and we continue to turn to her for advice as we do work around the home. So happy we were connected with Summer. If/when we next buy or sell a home in the area we will be sure to use Summer again.
Summer is a professional in every sense of the word. She is knowledgeable, hard-working and very responsive. She took time to understand what we were looking for in a house and her local knowledge of Santa Barbara allowed her to show us properties that matched our needs and interests. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an agent in this area! Doug & Lisa
Phenomenally helpful, very accommodating of our busy schedules, always available for contact and responsive to our needs, patient with us as she took us through the various stages and associated paperwork, intervening whenever useful with contractor, seller, bank mortgage officer, title company officer, etc. I cannot think of a realtor making what is a rather complex and cumbersome process any easier!
Summer was great! She was very knowledgeable and patient with us buying our first home. She made the whole process easy and streamlined. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Summer has as much recent experience in this market as anyone, as far as I know, is highly motivated, and extremely responsive. She brings a personal and thoughtful touch to the process. We purchased a house with her assistance after a search of a few months in a very difficult environment. Highly recommended.
Summer is an excellent agent. My wife and I recently moved to Santa Barbara with very little knowledge of the city and surrounding areas. We found Summer on Zillow after reading her amazing reviews. She lived up to the hype. She is extremely knowledgeable of all of the neighborhoods and school districts. She took the time to educate us and show us over 30 properties. We found our dream home with her help and couldn’t be happier. I would definitely use Summer again if I were to buy or sell a house in the Santa Barbara area.
Summer Knight and Emily Termond provided exceptional service for all our real estate needs. We had a very complex real estate transaction involving multiple buyers and sellers, that required diligence, patience, and precision. Both Emily and Summer surpassed our expectations and offered us a very pleasant real estate experience. They were always available and prompt with their communications. They remained upbeat, they were extremely knowledgeable about the market and the Santa Barbara area, and we’re eager to assist us at all times. We have been in our new home for three weeks and it is comforting to know that we can continue to rely on their expertise and their friendship that we have made over the past few months. Thank you Summer and Emily for all that you have done!
We found Summer on Zillow, based on her past sales in our area. Summer made recommendations as to improvements before listing and assisted with staging. She was able to get us two offers on our property in a short amount of time. This is not our first real estate transaction, so we can comfortably say she gave superb service, was very knowledgable and readily available. She paid attention to all details in the transaction and thought of everything. She gets the highest recommendation!
Summer did an excellent job of responding to my initial queries and helped to provide local knowledge and advice on various purchasing options. Although our personal circumstances changed and we no longer needed to purchased a new home, it was a please to work with Summer and I appreciated all her support and expertise.
My wife and I recently worked with Summer to purchase our new home in Santa Barbara. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always available, extremely knowledgable, patient* and well connected. Her network includes a number of other professionals (finance, various trades, etc.) that were not only competent, but also a pleasure to work with. Throughout the entire process we were confident that we were in good hands. You can’t go wrong with Summer! [*] we looked at a lot of homes and our requirements were along the lines of – we’ll know it when we see it.
Both Summer and her partner Emily Termond are very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I also think they very much take their client’s interest to heart. I really appreciate what they did to get the deal closed quickly for me.
Summer helped us find our future home! She listened to our needs. She is very knowledgeable and acted quickly. She provided us a lot useful information and advice. The whole process went smoothly. We are very happy with her service.
I worked with Summer in 2016 to sell my mother’s house after she passed away late in 2015. This involved working with a Trust attorneys office and my two brothers. We picked Summer because of her local knowledge of the area and references. Throughout the process she had answers for almost everything that came up. She called or texted back if we left a message almost immediately. We always seemed to be making progress whether it was showing the house, making needed fixes or handling any of the many legal and technical issues that came up. When an offer was finally made, the progress was reasonably fast through to escrow. We even picked up a little extra for delays by the buyer. I work with hundreds of people that provide services to me and my company every year and I wish more of them were like Summer.
Summer did a great job working with us to secure the perfect property for our needs. She is friendly & fun, while being super intelligent and can really knuckle down when it is needed. She was on top of every detail, avoiding problems by tapping into her experience & foresight. We couldn’t have found a realtor that did a better job while making us feel comfortable with the process.
