Jessica was outstanding in every way. Not only did she listen to our needs and concerns regarding the sale of our condo, but she expertly guided us through the pricing, marketing, and preparation of the property. It was a small property, but she treated us with the same respect, consideration, and attention to detail that she would the sellers of a $14 million property. Jessica was able to mobilize her excellent team of painters, handymen, gardeners, cleaners, and carpenters in a very timely manner to expedite the sale of our property. She demonstrated a calm professionalism throughout our negotiation process, escrow, and closure. I would highly recommend Jessica McLernon to anyone who is looking for a personal touch and professional guidance through the sale or purchase of their property. She is simply the best!

Deanna was instrumental in helping us find and move into our dream home! She patiently showed us 10+ homes in an incredibly competitive market, with incredible insight into the local market. Ultimately she helped us to find the perfect fit and to beat out many other offers to secure the home. She had keen intuition as to what we should offer to be competitive, and eventually guided us skillfully through the counter-offer process as well as inspections. Everything went so smoothly, and having been involved in many home purchases / sales, I know that to be quite rare! I highly recommend working with her.

Deanna was amazing. We could not have been happier with the experience! She made the buying process smooth and worry free, walked us through every step and gave good recommendations on how much to offer and what to ask for. Highly recommend!

Thank you so very much for taking care of our condo sale. Jessica did an incredible job of keeping us informed all the way through the process. I would not hesitate to use your office for any future real estate transactions and would highly recommend you to anyone in the market for an agent. Again, thank you to all of you.

Moving from the East Coast to the West Coast it was important for us to work with someone that was local to the area. As a life-long resident of the Santa Barbara community, Jessica is extremely knowledgeable, and she comfortably guided us through the real estate process while sharing the nuances of each neighborhood we visited. Her kind demeanor, attention to detail and prompt communication were qualities that we greatly appreciated. We highly recommend Jessica to be your guide through your real estate journey. If possible, we would give her higher marks than 5-stars. Thank you for making our dream come true!

I’m not quite sure where to begin, as I have so many positive things to say about Jessica. I have been appreciative of her warmth, attention to detail, knowledge of the area, efficiency, timely responses and communication- I truly could go on and on. She has been a pleasure to work with. Overall, she’s absolutely exceptional and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Jessica recently helped us buy our home in Santa Barbara. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, communicative, attuned to what we were seeking, and committed to us as clients. We couldn’t be happier with her services and the outcome of our purchase. We wholeheartedly recommend Jessica and plan to enlist her services again in the future.

- Jocelyn & Shawn, Buyer

Simply put Jessica is top notch on every front. My husband and I were new to both Santa Barbara and home buying. She took the time to genuinely get to know us, introduce us to the numerous different neighborhoods, and, ultimately, helped us to find our perfect home. She knows Santa Barbara and was able to guide us through all of the nuances that come along with the local regulations. She also has an extensive network of counterparts in the area (inspectors, contractors, etc.) to ensure you get the whole package. She guided us through the entire escrow process, helping to coordinate all of the various parties. She's prompt, thorough, trustworthy, and was two steps ahead of us the entire process. We are extremely happy to have worked with her! As an added complexity to our particular situation, we had just kicked off our house search when COVID-19 hit. She stayed on top of the local guidelines and rapidly changing market dynamics to help us re-align strategies as the situation unfolded. She never missed a beat and ensured that we were able to continue our search with ease. Highly recommend Jessica and will absolutely be working with her again for any future moves!

Faced with a divorce and an immediate need to downsize, I was at a complete loss until I met Jessica McLernon. Jessica came to me highly recommended by family and friends, and from the moment of our first meeting I felt a strength and a bond. Jessica is both a superb professional and a wonderful person. She is also skilled, knowledgeable, interactive, intuitive, available, superbly networked, tireless and compassionate. Marshalling and utilizing all these skills, Jessica produced amazing results. Within the span of two months she wrought miracles. Thanks to her networking skills, she succeeded in selling my home in an off market transaction for a very favorable price, to the first person to view my property. I was thus spared the expense and trauma of painting, priming, photographing and hosting open house caravans. My sale was successful, but the next step was to find a new home, and here, once again, Jessica's skills triumphed. I ended up purchasing the second property we viewed and it is a perfect fit. Working tirelessly, and with great skill, Jessica was able to finesse the simultaneous closing of escrows on both the old and new properties. This amazing feat allowed me to transition comfortably and happily with a minimum of stress. Jessica McLernon is, quite simply, the best!

Jessica went above and beyond to make our move to Santa Barbara smooth and easy. First and foremost, being a SB native she is very knowledgeable about all the different neighborhoods and areas. She’s an eloquent, smart and receptive agent. Her professionalism shines and she really understood our needs by making the most out of every showing days we spent together. Jessica was always there when we needed her during the purchase process and made sure we felt at ease every step of the way. Thanks Jessica and the Solakian group!
