Kathryn and I want you to know that you did a great job in marketing and closing the sale of our home on Vista D Oro in Niguel Shores last month. We are very relieved to have completed the arduous process of selling our home, and we recognize that a key element (perhaps the key element) in the successful closing of the sale was your great persistence. You warned us that the fall is normally a slow period for showing a home, and yet you brought a constant stream of potential buyers through the house week after week. This went on for 4 ½ months and yet you still arranged to show the house as often towards the end of this period as you did during the first few weeks we worked with you. It was also very meaningful to us that you or your representative was almost always present when a potential buyer examined our home, to explain the unique advantages of Niguel Shores and its Homeowners Association. We were certainly impressed that you were always available with humor, practical advice, and a calm demeanor during the entire period of our house remained on the market. You were a help in not over interpreting why we were not receiving offers, and helped us resist unreasonably further lowering our asking price. As you were fond of saying, you never know who will make an offer, and there certainly was true when the actual buyer of our property made an offer several days after we took the house off the market, thinking that we would not be able to sell the home until sometime in 2015. We might have lost that offer with another realtor working for us, and we were aware that you were marketing our home even when we had withdrawn it from being offered. Again, great job and we wholeheartedly thank you for the tremendous effort you put in. I doubt anyone could have done better.
Dependable and attentive
Attractive and indefatigable, loving and available. Dependable and attentive. Experienced and orderly. Patient and guide. That’s our friend. We are very appreciative of your successful efforts in selling our
home in Niguel Shores.
One in a million
You are one in a million. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I truly have appreciated it. The lunch was beyond our wildest dream. My prayers are for your continued success and health. You made the sale of our place seem easy. And I know it’s because you know what you’re doing and you do it all so perfectly. Take care and thanks.
The best realtor that we have ever worked with
What a wonderful surprise and Christmas! Thank you so much for thinking of us with all of the gift certificates. I apologize that we did not get a Christmas card off to you. Our holiday was pretty hectic with Alex being will with pneumonia for about 3 weeks. I am enclosing his Christmas picture so you can see how big he is getting. I obviously don’t carry him around in a sling anymore! I hope 2003 was a great years for you. You are still the best realtor that we have ever worked with. We are hoping to get to CA in the next couple of years and will definitely use you to purchase a home! We are finally getting used to Austin and its extreme heat! It is a fun city but we really miss CA. Lou’s parents finally sold their home, in SF and bought a home here in Barten Creek. They are only 1 mile from our house. Their house is 7500 sq feet (not too small!). Hope all is well!
Real Estate angel
First of all, Chuck and I want to thank you for the gift cards… we will have fun using them, I’m sure. But more importantly, we want to thank you for helping us get through a very difficult year. We really don’t know how we could have managed dealing with the “tenants from Hell” (as we not so affectionately called them) if you hadn’t been there to help us. You supported us with humor and good cheer throughout a very challenging ordeal. We called you our “Real Estate angel” rather than our agent, and said “Thank God for Connie!” more times than we can count. We are very, very grateful for all your efforts. We’d love to take you and Darrell to dinner next time we’re in OC. (or let us know if you happen to visit S.B.) Best wishes for a great holiday season!
A very satisfied client
Over the past two months I have had the pleasure of conducting two escrows with your Laguna Niguel team. The first transaction was the sale of my home. Connie McKibban recommended Kevin Sprong as our escrow officer. Even before we had an offer on the house, Kevin graciously provided a cost estimate. When we accepted an offer, it was any easy decision as to which escrow to use…” The Escrow Source” was the obvious choice. Throughout the duration of the escrow Kevin was informative and responsive to every inquiry and call. I was so pleased with the job that Kevin performed I wanted to use him when we made an offer to buy another home. I was a little disappointed when the seller demanded to use Rosie Christensen, but pleased to discover that she worked for “The Escrow Source.” I quickly found that Rosie was equally as helpful and responsive to my barrage of questions. She was always appeared calm and confident, which made us feel like we were in good hands. Both Kevin and Rosie have very pleasant personalities and are consummate professionals in every sense. Which leads me to another member of your office lineup…whenever my wife or I called or came into the office, Christina, the office receptionist, was always very charming and joyful in her interactions with us. On one hot day I said, “a margarita would be great right now” and joked how the Escrow Source should provide margaritas for their clients. Much to our surprise and delight, when we came in again to sign loan docs, Christina presented us with “virgin” margaritas. It was a nice touch and demonstrated that your team truly offers personal service. My wife and I are glad to hear that Christina is now taking on new responsibilities. It also demonstrates that you recognize talent. I don’t normally recommend businesses unless I am absolutely confident that the person receiving the recommendation will be treated in the same manner. Trust me when I say that I will not hesitate in recommending either Kevin, Rosie or the Escrow Service in the future. Feel free to publish this note. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to your staff and thank you for retaining great personnel. A very satisfied client.
Really appreciate all you did to help us get here
Thank you so much for finding us the coolest, best, most fun beach house!! We are over the moon about it and really appreciate all you did to help us get here. Please come by anytime for a drink and a tour!!
In good hands every step of the way
Thank you for the Nick’s gift certificate and champagne-both will be put to good use! Most of all, we want to thank you for your attention to all the details in selling Chelsea Point and guiding us in the purchase of Marquesa. Your professionalism and thoroughness was so appreciated and we felt we were in good hands every step of the way! Thank you.
Congratulations on your incredible sales achievements
Congratulations on your incredible sales achievements last year! The results from 2011 indicate that you ranked number sixty seven for your sales production out of our vast network of agents in Southern California. For Prudential sales associate in Orange County you ranked at the number thirteen position for your sales production, and at the number twenty four position for the number of transactions.
We would also like to congratulate you for earning one of our company’s highest honors, the Chairman’s Circle Platinum award. The achievement ranks you at the top 1% of more than 54,000 Prudential agents nationwide.
A real pleasure
I wanted to thank you again for sharing your many years of expertise in selling homes in Niguel Shores with me when I recently sold 23932 Danzig Bay. Your knowledge of value in the community and pricing was invaluable to the sellers and me. It was a real pleasure working with you and I hope our paths cross again soon!
Anything but ordinary
As the owner of a small real estate and mortgage banking litigation shop, time is exceedingly valuable to me. For this reason, and the fact that I am not exactly easy to please, I rarely write letters of praise. However, Connie McKibban’s professionalism, diligence, attention to detail, and rigorous adherence to her fiduciary duties require me to write this letter. My wife and I just purchased a home in Niguel Shores from one of Connie’s clients. As I am a broker and handled the selling agent duties, Connie owed us no fiduciary duties, merely a duty of ordinary care. The care that Connie gave to my wife and I was anything but ordinary. While rigorously adhering to her fiduciary duties as the listing agent, she made us feel like she was our agent too. Meeting us at the house on several occasions just to “make sure everything was okay.” Disclosing every possible bit of knowledge that she had regarding the house, and even disclosing everything she knew about the surrounding houses that could reasonably impact our opinion of the property. Connie’s husband even watered the yard on Sundays. Talk about service! Connie’s abilities and professionalism simply cannot be overstated and have extended beyond the transaction closing. Even now, with the transaction closed, Connie contacts us regularly to inform us of new things that she has learned about the history of our new home. I think that the highest bit of praise that I can give Connie is that even though I am a broker, I would recommend that anyone looking to list a home in Dana Point hire Connie. No doubt you recognize Connie’s significant talents, but a little feedback from the outside is always nice. If you have any questions that you would like to ask me or if you would like to discuss any aspect of this transaction further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I’m not sure if we should wait until Tuesday or not, but please know how much Lee and I realize what a totally consummate professional you are and totally appreciate all of your efforts and how much effort you took in NOT overselling the potential of this deal. No one would or could have anticipated the Economic impacts we have faced. We just want you to know how much we have benefited from not just appreciating your success with our property but watching you in action. Consider Lee and I two of your biggest fans. Thank you and we look forward to sharing more than just a glass of wine.
Amazing real estate advisor
It was such a blessing for us to meet you in March. You are an amazing real estate advisor, not to mention a wonderful person with integrity. Thank you very much for your wise counsel and support in assisting Mike and me to purchase the property on Flying Jib. You helped make our 12 year dream of owning a beautiful second home a reality. Thank you also for the wonderful assortment of gift cards which will help us stock our home from pantry items to bathroom and garden supplies. We look forward to having you over for a sunset ice tea or cocktail this summer. You are also welcomed to stop by anytime. Thank you again for all of your help and especially for your friendship. Mike joins me in wishing you continued success personally and professionally.
Professional assistance and guidance
As you so well know it was hard and “bittersweet” decision to sell my Inoian Bay property. However the “sweet” was very sweet as your professional assistance and guidance made the sale an easy execution for me. Another benefit was getting to know you-so comfortable and easy with whom to work. I’m hoping our paths will cross again. Thank you.
Thank you very much
The time you took from your busy schedule was very much appreciated. Thank you very much, we enjoyed every bit.
You made things go a lot easier than we ever anticipated
Thank you for your efforts in selling our Niguel Shores property. Pat and I really appreciated your professionalism and positive attitude from the time of our first discussion about listing the house to the end. You obviously know your business. You made things go a lot easier than we ever anticipated.
A very friendly, thoughtful, considerate and trustworthy person
We’re slowly getting settled and are really enjoying the slower pace and friendly neighbors and beautiful scenery. We’re getting some pictures hung on the walls and it’s starting to look and feel like home. We wanted to thank you again for handling the sale of our house. You are so professional and you take care of every little detail. Plus, you are a very friendly, thoughtful, considerate and trustworthy person. We couldn’t have done it without you. It was fun to see all the wires going to the right accounts. Several Niguel Shores people have asked me about you and I told them all how great you are. You’ve earned your success because you work so hard. Thank you again. Please send our best wished to Mary.
We were in the best of hands
Now that the Kaplan house at 39 Coast del Sol has been sold and escrow closed. I wanted to thank you so much for all you did for us. From the very day you took over. I felt that we were in the best of hands. Your attention to detail, your help in finding the workmen we needed, and then making sure everything got done, on time, the way it was supposed to be done, was extraordinary. It’s not easy to sell a house from afar, as we needed to do after my Dad died, but never for a moment did I worry. You were on top of it, all the time. But I have to tell you that what you did for Mom and me went far beyond the call of duty. I almost felt that we were being treated as a member of your family, so carefully did you monitor everything every step of the way to make sure that everything that had to happen did happen! I do not know of another agent (and I’ve worked with quite a few in the past) who ever spend the kind of time that you did with us for us.
Mom and I would like you to have this Squash Blossom necklace as a token of our great appreciation. May it bring you joy and good luck!
Sincerely with best regards from both of us
Competent, professional and diligent
Thank you for the privilege of having you as my realtor. I cannot imagine anyone in your business who is more competent, professional and diligent. I know your joy which is abundant will be shared by all who cross you path. With sincere respect and appreciation.
So comfortable and easy with whom to work
As you well know it was a hard and “bitter/sweet” decision to sell my Ionian Bay property. However, the sweet was very sweet as your professional assistance and guidance made the sale an easy execution for me. Another benefit was getting to know you – so comfortable and easy with whom to work. I’m hoping our paths will cross again.
Our only edge in this market was Connie McKibban
As a result of our parents’ passing, our family had the misfortune to bring a multimillion dollar residence to market at the depths of the 2007-2008 real estate depression in Orange County. To say the market was grim would be an understatement. Buyers were few and offer were rare. Our only edge in this market was Connie McKibban, our Real Estate Agent. Connie is well respected, professional and always available to take care of business. She was able to keep the only bidder on the property, a volatile and unpleasant man, focused and engaged to the close of escrow. She was a pleasure to work with at all time and she has my hearty recommendation.
12 year dream of owning a beautiful second home a reality
It was such a blessing for us to meet you in March. You are an amazing real estate advisor, not to mention a wonderful person with integrity. Thank you very much for your wise council and support in assisting Mike and me to purchase the property onFlying Jib. You helped me make a 12 year dream of owning a beautiful second home a reality. Thank you also for the wonderful assortment of gift cards which will help us stock our home from pantry items to bathroom and garden supplies. We look forward to having you over for a sunset iced tea or cocktail this summer. You are also welcomed to stop by at any time. Thank you again for all your help and especially for your friendship. Mike joins me in wishing you continued success personally and professionally.
I would recommend you to anyone
I received a detailed closing statement from the Escrow and everything looks OK. I am enormously pleased to have sold the house, and at a fair price, based upon the current market. Your skills had a lot to do with the smoothness and professional manner the sale was handled. You thank me for referring the client but it is I who should thank you for your skills and effort. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone as the best Residential Realtor I have come in contact with in my 32 years in the Real Estate Business. I feel like I should have treated you to dinner at Salt Creek but nevertheless, thank you for your thoughtfulness and most importantly, your professionalism.
Absolute Joy to Work With
It was an absolute joy to work with someone as smart, efficient, knowledgeable and competent as Connie McKibban. The California market is highly competitive and when the house is a great one, like the one which we purchased, you need to have a terrific real estate agent like Connie to work with.
Extremely Professional and Honest
Connie handled both our sale and purchase of our home. She was extremely professional and honest We would definitely recommend her to our friends and family. We would also use her with future real estate transactions.
