I can't say enough good things about the Santa Rosa realtor that I partnered with to help me flip a house in Santa Rosa at 895 Quietwater Ridge. They were the seller’s agent when I purchased the Santa Rosa home and I hired them to be my seller’s agent when I listing it for sale. My experience with Jeff and his wife was more than just a typical real estate transaction. Jeff & I became quasi-business partners in getting the house ready to list and I gave him the numbers that I needed and he gave me an honest assessment of what it would take to update the house. He pinpointed exactly what updates to do to make it market ready and maximize profit. He was the point person to handle all the subs and was willing to work with me on commission if we went below what I needed to make the project work. Fortunately, we got a full-price offer with no contingencies which is an indication that Jeff & Tracey were right on the money about what updates to do to stimulate an offer. I have dealt with a lot of realtors over the years, most are just hungry for their commission and do the minimum effort to get it. But every now and then I've been fortunate enough to come across a realtor who has the mentality that this is their business and they approach each person with that mind-set. Jeff & Tracey are this way. Whatever your needs are, they will find the way to help you. They are true professionals.
We first worked with Tracey and Jeff in 2009 when looking for a rental home for our daughter who was then living in a rental that would have 2 inches of water in the living room when it rained. They found us a home that was unbelievably priced at the time, it has more than doubled in value, and my daughter's rent went down substantially as a result. Some minor remodeling was all that was needed to improve it substantially. In 2010 we decided to get another rental for a long time employee and it has been perfect in every way for her with some minor remodeling. It has almost doubled in value. In 2013 we decided to buy a more expensive rental home near Memorial Hospital and once again they found us a perfect home, my daughter now lives there and is tickled. Even that home is worth about 40% more. In 2014 my wife's sister moved back to Santa Rosa and wanted a home under $450,000 within walking distance of Downtown with three bedrooms and about 1500 square feet I told her that her chances were zero but to give Jeff and Tracey the job of finding it. Of course they did find one and my sister in law couldn't be happier. If you are looking for a team to find you that perfect fit, even at a price that might be questionable they are the ones for the job. Fantastic people who do a fantastic job. Can't recommend them highly enough.
Jeff and Tracey are a dynamic duo. We had been working with another local realtor who was not working to help us find a home - he was only forwarding listings that met our parameters. Luckily, one day we found Jeff. Jeff went far and above normal service to support us with a variety of services. He would hand pick properties for us and helped us plan our days house hunting to get the most out of our visits to Santa Rosa since it was a 3 hr round trip journey. He carefully listened to what we liked and didn't like about a given property to gain better judgement of what would 'wow' us. He hand held us through the crazy offer and counter offer experience, and calmed my nerves as we went through the contract period. We are stoked about our new home that the Schweens helped us secure. I recommend them highly!
Amazing – the Schween’s educated us on the process and handled everything smoothly. When buyers fell out of escrow, they worked tirelessly to reach out to other offers. Great experience - kind, compassionate, understanding team. We were able to sell our home in the time frame we needed and at a price that was above our expectations thanks to the team of Jeff & Tracey Schween. At times it was stressful, but we felt secure knowing they had our backs. We knew they were handling many other clients besides us, but it never felt that way. We always felt like we were their only concern, and we are grateful and appreciative of the fantastic attention and service! Our first home selling experience. Tracey helped us navigate the process and was sympathetic to our needs as we sold our home of 25 years.
Jeff and Tracey are a dynamic duo. We had been working with another local realtor who was not working to help us find a home. He only forwarded relevant listings. We were lucky the day we found Jeff. Jeff went far and above to serve a plate of awesome service. He would hand pick properties for us and helped us plan days to get the most out of our visits to Santa Rosa it was a 1.5 hours one way trip for us. He always listened to what we liked and didn't like about each property to gain better judgment of what would wow us. He hand held us through the crazy offer and counter offer experience, and calmed my nerves as we went into and through the contract period. We are stoked with the new home that The Schween's helped us secure. I recommend them highly.
My Husband worked with Jeff to buy his first home and when we were ready for a little more room, of course we contacted Jeff and Tracey to help us. They were excellent in their recommendations for getting our house ready to be put on the market and allowed us to sell at the best price in a short amount of time. This allowed us to close on our perfect new home! Buying and selling a home is a stressful process and having the right team makes all the difference in the world! Jeff and Tracey were so patient and accommodating during this process! They have such a great knowledge of the market and know what it takes to make their clients happy. We are so thankful to them for getting us into our new home!
Jeff & Tracey were referred to us by a realtor in the Bay Area. Jeff & Tracey helped us find and close a home in Fountain Grove, Santa Rosa. Jeff met us on a Sunday morning, showed us 5 or 6 places. Of these, we selected 1. We went through 2 rounds of negotiation and closed within 4 weeks of our initial meeting. We had already been looking for a while on our own, so we had reasonably well formed opinions about the market. We found Jeff & Tracey to be very professional, attentive, and available, They had good systems for tracking each and every document associated with the transaction. Would definitely recommend this team for buying a home in Santa Rosa.
Jeff Schween came highly recommended to us and we agree that he did the very best job anyone could do especially in today's market. He got the price we were asking for our old home and helped us purchase our new home. We would recommend him to anyone who wants someone they can trust and feel comfortable with. Tracey, also worked with us and together they make a superb team. They are a great team with superb energy. Jeff with your patience and determination and Tracey with your great suggestions and nurturing. You are a class act. Thank you for helping us through the entire process, we would be happy to recommend both of you.
Jeff and Tracey were not only professional assets in the buying and selling of our Santa Rosa home, they were personal touchstones during both events. Jeff was extremely effective in finding us a beautiful home and in finding us an acceptable buyer for it later, all within one of the worst economic or real estate depressions. Jeff's optimism and professional knowledge and skills were invaluable assets. We valued every buy and sell detail they handled. After nine moves around the country, we can say Jeff and Tracey are the most thorough and professional agents we have used. You will always be our only recommendation.
Jeff and Tracey did an awesome job and stayed on top of all the details. We live out of state and the house needed some improvements to be sold for top dollar. Jeff recommended what needed to be done, handled hiring it done, and we had two offers in days OVER asking price. Everything was handled efficiently, with our approval, and was always there when we asked a question. The open house had over 100 people at it. Not only do Jeff and Tracey know what a house needs to get people interested, they also can bring people through the door! I would highly recommend to anyone!
Jeff was the most effective agent we have ever used. He and his wife were there every step of the way as well as helpful with our relocation in another state. There was no stone left unturned. Everything was handled with utmost professionalism and caring. They made us feel like we were their only clients. They followed through till the very end and I'm sure they will be there if we need anything even after the closing. We would highly recommend them as superior agents and wish all our moves had been handled this efficiently. We recommend only them.
My husband and I had Jeff and Tracey Schween as our agents on the purchase of our home in Santa Rosa, California. I have only the highest praise for them both; they truly have their client's best interests at heart and they guided us through this purchase and made it so smooth, in fact, we have bought and sold many homes and I would have to say that this was the smoothest transaction from beginning to end. I have just recently referred Jeff and Tracey to my brother because I have so much confidence in them.
We found our experience with the Schweens to be professional, informative and helpful. They worked great as a team! Jeff was knowledgeable about Santa Rosa and the surrounding areas and through listening, quick to know what type of home we were interested in. They were flexible with our time constrictions, with one of them being available to show a home at our convenience. We would highly recommend this team if you are looking for a home in Santa Rosa or the surrounding area!
Jeff and Tracey went above and beyond the call in helping us relocate to Santa Rosa. We were especially impressed that Jeff worked very hard to convince the sellers relocations company to accept our offer and yet portrayed the negotiations to us as no big deal.
