My Client Reviews
Betsy is a tremendous asset to have on your side when you are selling your home. From the get go, she made the transition smooth after we had to release our first agent. Then, after entering a seemingly smooth escrow, the agent and buyers made insane demands to us so she helped navigate us through this crazy time. And this happened to us, not once, but twice! Finally, we entered escrow a 3rd time and as the saying goes..."3rd time is a charm" and was an absolute dream escrow. This all occurred a little over a 4 month time period. She was there every step of the way with negotiating and communicating to us. She is always professional. She presents all of our options so we can make an informed decision as things arise. Her negotiating skills are second to none. She is detail oriented so always review the paperwork each escrow. I really can't say enough of how grateful we are that Betsy was gracious to take over as our agent in the first place and then to help navigate us through 3 escrows and finally close! We are grateful and blessed and you will be too!
Betsy was dedicated and tenacious during a very difficult house sale. Her attitude did not waver and was willing to look at all options. She stayed with us to the end and would recommend her to anybody selling or buying, no matter the situation.
Recently Betsy helped me sell my home home in Long Beach, Ca. The process was new to me and she was very professional and patient in answering all of my questions. Betsy let me know the things I could do to improve the look of my house and yards to get it ready to sell. I don't think you could find a more dedicated and hard working realtor who ensures that her client understands the process and get the best offer possible on your property. Thank you Betsy for being by my side every step of the way till the sale was finalized. You are the Best !!!
Very impressed. Betsy asked all the right questions, I set my parameters, and then she found the property which fit the bill. She prepared me for what to expect in the process and she professional handled all the issues from start to finish..
Betsy went above and beyond to make sure we were on the right track from the beginning of the project. She explained my selling options, and we decided the full renovation was the way to go for us. Throughout the process she was there giving guidance at every step of the way. Valuable insights which made decision making easy.
My sister and I used Betsy to help us sell the home of our late mother. From the first showing to the closing of the escrow, Betsy was there for us at all times. She is friendly, knowledgeable of real estate in general and of the many diverse markets in Southern California, and a hard worker. She kept us posted often, explained documents and procedures to us, and dealt with very well with the buyer's agent. She made this somewhat emotional selling experience a lot less stressful. Her expertise in dealing with offers garners us a successful offer roughly 9% above list price. I would definitely use her again, anywhere, and strongly recommend her.
Betsy was very professional and exceptionally hard working. I had complete confidence in her being able to expertly get the job done, and she exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her.
Betsy was amazing. She helped us every step in our journey. We had a buyer for our condo within days of deciding to list it. She provided us many options for houses to buy and got us everything we were looking for in the house in a few weeks all within a VERY competitive market as a buyer! She was incredibly responsive and very knowledgeable. She has many great contacts for lenders and inspections that I recommend after working with them. She had great ideas for how to stage our condo and even loaned us some pieces for staging. She had high quality photos taken and we got multiple offers above asking price. She was able to negotiate a rent back and credit that fit our specific needs. We love our new house and Betsy made the whole process of buying easy. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. I highly recommend Betsy.
Where to begin?! Betsy has been a true partner in helping me to achieve my goals both buying and selling investment real estate. We have worked together for over four years and with each transaction I was in awe of Betsy's professionalism, and ability to see the end goal. Betsy has a can do attitude and is tenacious getting the best deal and more importantly the best property for her buyer. She has the ability to cut through all the drama that a transaction serve up and gets the job done! Betsy and I are about three quarters of the way through my overall investment plan, and I am happy to say that I am complete satisfied with everything that she has done on my behalf. No lie, through her networking, just today, she presented me an unsolicited offer on one of my properties that is almost too good to be true! Looks like we may be off looking for another acquisition. Whether you are a first time buyer or a seasoned investor you can't go wrong choosing Betsy to meet and exceed your expectations. She really cares about her clients and won't present to you or waste your time with properties that aren't right. What she will do though, is to present you with possible opportunities that you might not have considered. Betsy's insight and knowledge has added some great properties to my portfolio!
Previous review from Steve P.
Betsy is simply the best!!! She has been on top of her game every step of the way helping me to realize my real estate goals. Together, we have completed three transactions that have included both commercial and residential properties. Betsy has a can do, professional, attitude that has made each sale a breeze! Currently looking for another property and Betsy is the only realtor that I would trust!
Betsy is the best! She always took the time to answer our questions in a kind and patient manner. Betsy's attention to detail and extraordinary talent makes her an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks to Betsy, we have a new home that we love!
Betsy is very personable, and easy to communicate and work with. She took the time to understand my needs, and kept them uppermost in mind. She is very knowledgeable about the policies and regulations of her industry. When it was necessary to make a decision, due to her experience and expertise, she was able to offer options and evaluate each. She understands that the final decision rests with the client. When she was not intimately familiar with a technical area Betsy would consult with the appropriate individual (example: attorney) within her company, or, if necessary, with a reputable source outside the company. She was thorough throughout the process, ensuring that all was handled correctly and appropriately, so that there would no be "surprises" later. Betsy was always available via text, email or phone, 7 days a week. She always responded quickly. She kept me well informed and in a timely manner throughout the process. Due to her research of the local real estate market, she was able to determine a fair asking price for my property and ultimately, due to her negotiation skills, secure an excellent final sale price that will allow me to purchase a new home all cash. I found Betsy to be very responsive, honest, professional, dedicated and easy to work with. When l speak of Betsy to others, l always speak highly of her and have already recommended her to a neighbor. I look forward to working with Betsy on the purchase of my new home.
Betsy did an outstanding job helping us find the perfect place for our son to live. Our needs were rather specific and she came through with flying colors. She is kind, professional and very reliable. I highly recommend her.
Betsy is the bomb! We had spoken about the possibility of me buying a home long before finding my condo, as I was not financially ready and there wasn't anything on the market that fit my price range or needs. All of a sudden I get a call about a property had not hit the market yet. Find out this place had my name written all over it! I wasn't totally ready to have this cozy condo but Betsy set me up with a lender and all the resources I needed to be able to have the ideal offer in minimal time to get this condo before it went on the market. Escrow was not perfectly smooth but Betsy was able to negotiate a price reduction and buyer credits to make buying this condo financially easier for me. I do not know what I would do without her and look forward to having dinner with her this evening!
Everyone's goal is to find an experienced real estate agent that will put the time and effort into helping you reach your goals in buying or selling property. What I found in Betsy Hutchinson was beyond that. I gave her strict guidelines on which neighborhood I wanted my home to be located in. She was upfront with this fact that that specific neighborhood was not her area of expertise, which shows an astounding level of her character. She proved herself in the weeks ahead that when Betsy does not know something, she know where she can learn it. By the end of the process she knew the neighborhood better than me, a local. Other than her tenacity on dealing with my high demands, she also held my hand. She had to explain to me multiple times on the procedures to come. I was so comfortable with her that it got to the point where I was asking her questions that I should have been asking my Loan Officer. Overall her work ethic, honor, accountability and most all character shined through when she lead me through the emotional, the surprising, and the drudgery steps of finding my dream home.
We first met Betsy when we were looking to buy a new home. We had been living in our prior home for more than 20 years and we were ready for a change. We were so impressed with her knowledge of the housing market and local area that we had her list our house as well. From start to close, our experience with Betsy was exceptional. She is well organized; and coordinated the whole Sale and Purchase of our home(s) beautifully. She was available every time we had a question or concern. She always made us feel that we were her number one priority. She went above and beyond, making sure that we got in touch with the right people to help with each different step. Her vast network of contacts within the Real Estate market is terrific and we benefited from it. We are so happy with our new home! Thank you, Betsy,! You're the best!!
Betsy was so enthusiastic and helpful during the whole process of buying our first house. She was never pushy or difficult to work with and always made us feel like we were in control. We love the house we ended up with!
Betsy was always there when I needed her. I wanted to do most of the searching myself through zillow, redfin, open houses, etc. However I found that when we went hunting with Betsy we really were able to leverage the viewing opportunities of houses that were not on market or did not offer open houses. We met Betsy at an open house and fell in love with her style. She is extremely useful for first homebuyer as she walked us through the whole process slowly.
Betsy is enthusiastic in everything she does. She gives her clients her whole heart and soul to make sure they have all the pertinent information they need to make the decision to either buy or sell their home. She is in it for her lifetime and is always excited to learn new things to be able to share it with them. I love working with her because she takes her time when needed and to the point if need be. Betsy brings her clients knowledge, marketing strategies, client campaigns that pertain to them. She works with each of her clients and finds out what they need and want. In my eyes she is a A+ Realtor.
Working with Betsy was just a pure pleasure. During our transaction together, I was representing the buyer and she was representing the seller, we had issues with my buyer to perform on time and because of her professionalism and our good communication we just made it happen and both clients were happy. It will be a pleasure working with Betsy anytime!
Working with Betsy on a business to business level is a pleasure. She's prepared, thorough, has proven to have excellent time management and scheduling, responsive, friendly and personable yet always professional and respectful. Betsy not only cares to service her buyer/seller clientele, she expresses this same enthusiasm for service through her team work as a trusted partner to work with.
I highly recommend Betsy Hutchinson for her knowledge, skill and honesty. Betsy sold a rental home in Los Angeles for me at top dollar. We had an offer that exceeded asking before the sign was even up. She is a wonderful communicator and let's you know exactly what is happening at all times. If you call her and she is not available, she calls right back, She is also honest with the buyer so that there will not be any misunderstandings. We followed her suggestions on assuring all legal requirements were met (or exceeded) and did not have any problem with the inspection or sale. Betsy was a blessing--and I have told her that, but she is also a very bright and astute business professional. Any further sales or purchases I consider making will absolutely include her representation.
Selecting a real estate professional help me find a home was a major decision. I was looking for a professional who would help make home buying a smooth seamless process. Betsy Hutchinson was that person. Betsy listened to what all of my needs were. She developed a plan to help me find my dream home and implemented it. Betsy's proactive approach was exactly what I needed. After looking at some listings that met my criteria I found my dream home! I plan on recommending Betsy to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. She is professional, personable and detail oriented. If you make the decision to have Betsy represent you in the purchase or sell of a home, you will be a completely satisfied customer!
We referred to Betsy through a friend and are very happy with the home she helped us find. We were relocating from an East Coast city to the West Coast looking for an urban-like environment in a coastal town. Betsy turned us to Long Beach and we are so thankful we trusted her local knowledge to find us the right neighborhood. She did a great job communicating with us throughout the entire process and answering any questions we had. If we need a realtor in the future, we know who to turn to.
I know selling your home can be a stressful endeavor. It was for us. Not to worry because that is where Betsy steps in and guides you through the entire process. Betsy and her team were AWESOME. Betsy's communication was transparent and immediate. We were never left wondering what was going on behind the scenes during the listing phase, the selling phase or the escrow phase. Our escrow officer even commented that Betsy is one of the best brokers she works with because Betsy is very organized. Don't be afraid if Betsy is not your 'local' broker. We heard that we needed to use a local broker because they know the local market. Betsy was not one of our local brokers; however, she continually updated us with local market research, trends, listings and sales. Her marketing strategy of our house brought us multiple offers within the first 2 days on the market and we sold above our ask within 3 days! We can highly recommend Betsy to anyone interested in placing their house on the market.
