"I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how deeply grateful I am to have been introduced to you and to have selected you as the Realtor for the sale of the Hill House.
You have many skills, but what stands out to me is your respectfulness, honesty and professionalism. From the very start, you demonstrated a sincere understanding of my personal feelings for the house and its importance as a historical property. You were always respectful and honest in giving your opinion about any necessary changes that might need to be addressed for sale. Mindful of costs to the owner, you used capable professionals to undertake the assessments and repairs needed prior to sale. Everything came in on time with your management of a tight schedule and the house got to market with a very successful outcome.
I live at a distance from the property that you sold and you were always respectful of my time, my difficulty at times being present, and going the extra mile to get things done prior, during and after the sale. Your style is very hands-on which I am grateful for – just the right fit for a Carmel Realtor.
I also appreciate your sense of humor and spirit of collaboration that you brought to this project at every turn. In short, working with you on this sale has been seamless from start to finish and easily the best experience that I have had in selling a property – and I have bought and sold a number over the past 30 years.
I wish you much success in the years ahead and a very happy New Year to you and your family.”

"We have only the highest praise and recommendation for Jonathan Spencer. We were immediately impressed with Jonathan's preparation and professional approach during the interview process. As promised, Jonathan produced top of the line marketing tools and buyer access to ensure that the sale of our beautiful home was conducted with class and integrity. Jonathan also made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process, which is a critical component when dealing with the purchase or sell of one's home. And finally, his access to general contractors and tradesmen rounded out the efficient and effective 360 service that we expect from an agent.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jonathan Spencer to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek his service in any of our future real estate transactions."

"My husband and I have purchased and sold a number of homes over the years and we have worked with various agents through these transactions. This year we had the pleasure of working with Jonathan as a listing agent on a property we purchased and we found him to be one of, if not the best, agents we have worked with over the years. On this recent transaction, Jonathan represented both the seller and buyer (us). This special property was a very complicated transaction in many ways … one being a large gap in price objectives between the seller and buyer. Jonathan single handedly brought the buyer and seller together to reach a deal where both seller and buyer were satisfied with the outcome. Jonathan’s combination of low pressure; responsiveness; persistence; detail; flexibility and patience delivers results. We enthusiastically recommend Jonathan as an agent both for a seller or buyer."

"I want to thank you for your persistence and hard work that allowed me to be the successful offer on my new home in Carmel. You did a great job of educating me on the properties of Carmel for location and cost. The most important thought I have is that you kept me informed constantly of everything related to the property, within minutes of anything happening during both the offer process and the escrow period. You also networked very well with the selling party’s representative, knowing when we needed to be “tough”, and when to be “soft”. It all came together with me being the successful offer out of 11 total offers. I am also very pleased that you have put me together with an architect to design my new home. He has great ideas. I will definitely use you again for future property purchases. And, I will definitely recommend you to others as well."

"Jonathan helped make our dream become a reality. We were introduced to Jonathan through an acquaintance. He quickly understood what we were looking for and was instrumental in helping us refine our search, find the right property and negotiate on our behalf. Jonathan was incredibly responsive, diligent and transparent. He was instrumental in helping solve difficulties we encountered. He was extremely proactive and even brought in his own resources to find solutions to a particular issue. He did all this with a stellar attitude and positive energy. He has been a pleasure to work with. As a result, we’ve gained a friend. We’d strongly endorse Jonathan to represent us again in future transactions."
– John and Ann C.
"Jonathan is a fantastic agent! He was very patient with us and never made us feel rushed or pressured. He paid attention to the things we liked and did not like and was really aware of the features we valued when looking for a house. He was quick to make us aware of unusual opportunities and was well connected to know in a timely manner when they were available.
Jonathan is completely on top of things. Any question or concern received an immediate response. We never had to remind him of things, and it was him that had to remind us when paperwork was due. He went out of his way to make things easy for us and make the closing process smooth. He was always there to help explain things.
Jonathan also did many things other realtors have never done for us, going way beyond to help us get acquainted with repairmen, contractors and specialty inspectors to make sure we were comfortable with our purchase.
Jonathan's help did not end with the close and he was always available for further questions after we already had the keys to the house.
We would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone, and feel assured that they would have a great experience working with him and benefitting from his wonderful expertise!”

"During the recent sale of my coastal ranch, I was impressed with the following real property services rendered by you:
- Cost-effective and necessary pre-sale maintenance and repair.
- Staging of my ranch in good taste with turn key leverage to attract the high net worth buyer.
- Offering a quantified fair market price with effective print and internet advertising.
- Negotiation with two high net worth buyers to close the sale in a timely manner.
Since you fulfilled every commitment that you made, I am confident in your ability and integrity to close another sale on a prime property which I own in the Santa Lucia Preserve. I shall refer you to my friends."
