We were very happy with our experience with Farrah Garber. She was efficient and professional, particularly knowledgeable both about the market and about Napa. since we were unfamiliar with the area, she made sure to show us a variety of homes in different parts of the city so that together we refine what we wanted and where, and then she was quick to share listings that were not only appropriate, but that seemed just right. She was patient with our personal considerations and always had us on her radar. When we finally found the property we decided to buy, she acted quickly to make an offer that we were comfortable with and which was immediately accepted. During the escrow period, she effectively negotiated with the seller and their agent and helped us with all the details we needed to take care of. Even now, as we are moving in, she continues to assist us. Her personal touch and enthusiasm made this a wonderful experience and we are grateful to have been able to work with her and would highly recommend her. A great introduction to Napa! -Miriam Shein

Farrah is Superb! She provided me relevant information and very helpful advice. She connected all the dots that enabled the process of my home purchase. She tirelessly met me at various home viewings and was straightforward and open with her opinions and recommendations. Farrah very quickly got to know me and my needs and consistently looked out for my best interest. My son and I are very, very happy with our new place.
I value Farrah's professional help and guidance and certainly treasure a continuing friendship with her.
Thank you Farrah! - Lucilla Olkerill
As executor of my parents trust, a friend recommended Farrah Garber as someone who could advise me regarding my parents family home in Napa. Farrah had handled all of her familys past real estate transactions. This would be a long distance relationship/transaction outside of a few visits as needed, since I live out of town.
Initially, I was undecided about selling the house, but needed the required appraisal. I asked Farrah for a referral for an appraiser. Farrah conducted this free of charge and I was given a detailed report of property in the area and a written summary for our attorney.
I began to clean out the house and upgrade the amenities. During this process, Farrah provided a contact list with names and phone numbers of painters, handymen, electricians, etc. This was invaluable to me. All of her referrals were top notch and reasonably priced. Farrah also offered suggestions on minimal upgrades that were beneficial.
After much reflection and deliberation, my brothers and I decided to sell the house. We discussed selling the property By Owner and the benefits of using a realtor. During this process, Farrah was open to conversations and we discussed pros and cons. I quickly came to realize an agent like Farrah was an asset well worth the commission due to legal issues, wide advertisement exposure, experience in the field to aid trouble-shooting, just to name a few benefits. Farrah was patient when I requested more time for family discussions as we were not all in agreement. My wishes were always honored without judgement. We enlisted Farrah as our realtor.
At the time of hiring Farrah, I was still in the process of home improvements. Farrah agreed to oversee the final projects which enabled me to make fewer trips to Napa. Farrah holds high standards and put time and effort into overseeing the home improvement work. It was beautifully finished.
Farrah and I communicated frequently. I received copies of all the advertisements, photos, and legal paperwork as well as phone updates on the results of all the Open Houses. She was flexible with the time and dates of Open Houses. Farrah also took meticulous care of the house providing booties to clients when it rained so the new carpet would not be soiled. She even used some of her personal items to make the house look more inviting to clients.
After the final Open House, an offer was submitted. Farrah took the time to call agents of other interested clients to let them know another offer had been made. This action generated another offer which met our parameters better and we accepted it. Farrah went above and beyond for our benefit.
Most of the escrow papers were signed and submitted electronically. Farrah was available to answer questions and often walked my husband and me through the process on speaker-phone.
I trusted Farrah completely. Her ability to answer questions and provide supporting data is evidence of her expertise. Her work ethic is incredible and carried out with a positive attitude. Her warm, friendly demeanor enabled us to develop a very effective working relationship. This also created open communication that was essential to our success. It should be mentioned that not all family members agreed with all the decisions I made, but by the close of the real estate transaction, all family members were happy. This was very important to me.
I did travel to Napa for the title change. Immediately after the signing meeting, Farrah treated the friend who made the initial referral and me, to a celebratory lunch. It was very clear that our business relationship was evolving into a friendship. Farrah is a credit to her profession and I highly recommend her as a realtor! - Sally Swimmer
We liked Farrah right away. She is very personable, confident, savvy and knows real estate market in the Napa Valley area well. Would definitely use her again if we were to buy another house. -nealemulligan
Farrah Garber is a very helpful, knowledgeable, and a very nice person. She helps me with all the important questions I need. I recommend her very much. Brings in a buyer that loves our house. Stay's long hours in the property when a prospected buyer wants to. Show's the house to a prospected buyer even if it is a holiday. Answers my text or call promptly when I have some questions about the sale of our property. Accompany me to the county office to find all the documents we needed for the sale of our property. Work tirelessly to make sure that the sale of our property went smoothly. It did and I thank her and her partner for all the job well-done. - Veronica Blatteis
I simply do not have the words to describe how grateful my husband and are for Farrah Garber. She is an absolute expert, an amazing problem solver and negotiator. Farrah guided us through many extremely challenging, time sensitive, issues that were unique to our property; no challenge was too difficult for her to overcome. Her integrity is impeccable, her knowledge and skill set is unparalleled and her work ethic is hands-down impressive. I hold her in the highest regards, with the greatest respect; would definitely recommend her to family and friends. Thank you Farrah- We are so grateful! -eec86
Farrah was very professional throughout the process of selling my house. She always had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend her to anyone who plans on selling their home.
We loved working with Farrah. She helped us sell our home and purchase a new home in record time. Farrah guided us with expertise through every step in the process. We would definitely use her again. - Napa Carol
"Everyone I talked to while out and about had such wonderful things and positive reactions to me saying Farrah Garber is our realtor. She has a solid reputation in the community and she takes pride in it. Her personality is warm, affable, gracious and professional. I always looked forward to seeing her friendly smile or hearing her charming laugh.
Farrah helped us find our dream home here in Napa. She is patient and has great intuition. She understood when to let us do our own hunting and when we wanted more attention from her while looking at properties. We saw many, many homes and put in several offers and her advice was always sound. She was able to point things out on the properties neither of us would have considered, and really helped guide our decision making process.
When we finally found "the one," we ran into many hurdles with the seller and the seller's agent. Time and time again it felt like they were out to sabotage the deal. But Farrah was always quick with a response when necessary, and cautious to seek counsel from her Coldwell team when appropriate. She is very thorough and knowledgeable about the process, the transaction, and detailed when putting together all of the various documents.
Farrah walked us through our home buying process from beginning to end. She was always responsive to any method of communication, and I always felt like her highest priority. I felt that she really cared about us and our family. On closing day, we hugged and shed tears over the difficult transaction that we got through together.
We felt fortunate to work with Farrah. She came recommended to me by friends who bought their house with Farrah whose friend also bought their house with Farrah. I'd highly recommend her to anyone I know" - moni727
Farrah was great to work with throughout the home-buying process. She provided timely follow-up and a willingness to assist even with the smallest of issues. Her warm and friendly approach was also greatly appreciated. - napaclient
Farrah consistently went above and beyond for us. She treated us as though we were her family. She is an excellent negotiator, very responsive, detail oriented, very committed to the entire process. I would and have recommend her to my closest friends and family. Truly a special person. She made a stressful time period feel manageable. This is our second transaction with Farrah at our side and I can't think of anyone else I would call on in the future. - user4548999
"Farrah is the greatest. I can't imagine a realtor being any better. She has guided us through the process of both buying and selling a house now, and her expertise and passion have made the process as easy as can be. A+ for Farrah." - edmoser36
"Farrah was with me through the entire process. She came in and told me what I needed to do to make the house ready to sell. She even had a handyman for me. Farrah kept an eye on the work the handyman did. She was there to make sure the work was done expertly. The house was put up for sale on a Saturday night. The following Sunday Farrah held an open house. The house sold that day! Just one day! The offer was above the asking price.
Farrah managed the entire process, advising me clearly on all the steps. She worked with the realtor who was finding me a house in another city. I always knew what was to take place next and what the deadlines meant. She even brought me boxes for my move and put the entire amount of paperwork on a disc. I recommend Farrah Garber and regard her expertise with deep respect." - elaineneth43
"We just moved to Napa and did not have any knowledge of neighborhoods or even the process of purchasing a home. Not only was Farrah a wonderfully warm and welcoming, she provided us insight to the different areas of Napa. When we looked at homes with her, she would tell us future development in that area or point out things that would have to be fixed. She was always positive about each home we saw, including some very odd fixer upper ones. She was very good about responding to my texts and emails when I had questions. If I mentioned a saw this one house online, she would ask if I wanted to view it later and immediately have a response on when we can go over. It was a great first time buying a home with her." - girl01945
