Testimonials

Ali is hands-down the reason I am such a happy Montecito homeowner. She went the extra mile in every situation, and provided a sense of comfort as she walked me through the paces as a first time buyer. Above all, she cares, and you can tell. Professional, intelligent, creative, expedient,  responsive, trustworthy, and just a joy to work with. Not to mention, she has a good eye for the gems - I always knew that when she sent me properties to check out, they were going to be worth my time, as she would hand-select them based on my persona.

~ Brooks Allen

I can't speak enough good things about Ali Evans. You have to meet her and work with her to know more. When we met Ali, we were certainly most impressed. Going with her has been one of the best decisions we have made. From the time we signed her to be our agent, things moved extremely fast. As we  were trying selling the house remotely, she was a wealth of knowledge when it came to providing names of Estate Sale Services, Painters, Plumbers and Gardeners. Ali was also instrumental in scheduling and coordinating all these activities. Everyone she recommended did an excellent job. She is very diligent in her work and I have seen very few people who work so hard like she does. She really knows the real estate business really well and is a great negotiator. I would highly recommend Ali Evans.

~ Benedikte Ytting

Ali Evans is an exceptional Realtor. I worked with her to sell my home in Summerland in the Spring of 2018. From her pricing strategy to her ability to stage the home for photography and client showings, she has all of the experience needed to maximize your profits on the sale and at the same time  keeping things in perspective along the way. I highly recommend working with Ali.

~Betsy Wise

Ali is an absolutely amazing real estate agent! She is the only reason our first home purchase was possible! Ali will work night and day to get all the details taken care for you, and will fight for you through the whole process. We literally would not have been able to buy this house without her, and are incredibly fortunate to have had her in our corner! If you are thinking of looking for a new property, or selling your current, there's no competition- she's the best!

~ Alena & Spencer

Ali Evans is the absolute best! She was a pure delight to work with and provided a top-drawer experience with the purchase of my first home. Ali is extremely professional, responsive, intelligent and not to mention patient throughout the entire home buying process. Her knowledge and expertise are unparalleled and she provided so much assurance and guidance from the very first house we looked at to the pocket-listing bungalow of my dreams, which she found for me! Even after the house closed, she went the extra mile to make sure I was all settled and content in my new home. It is with the highest regard that I recommend Ali Evans for your future home purchasing needs as it was one of

the best decisions I have made thus far!

~ Jessica Ryan

When we were looking for a Realtor in Santa Barbara, we did not know that we would make a friend in our new home town. Ali exceeded all our expectations. She is clearly a driven, upward-mobile professional, but it was as if we were her only client. Ali made us feel at ease and in full control during the entire process. She took care of all the tight scheduling, working around our busy academic calendars. She quickly zeroed in on our preferences and needs, and found candidate properties with our rather odd specification, such as mature oak trees and space for a greenhouse, but still not too far from town. She has the connections to know about properties before they are on the market, maintains an extensive network of superior inspectors and contractors, and has a thorough, object-specific knowledge regarding the evaluation process and all the possible issues. Once we closed, she was kindly available for courtesy follow-ups. While our first buying experience a few years back was perfectly fine, working with Ali was a major step up. We cannot think of anything that could have been better. 
Highly recommended, A+++!

~ Daniel Geiger

Talk about ABOVE and BEYOND wonderful personal customer service. Ali was so kind and helpful with this purchase. She quickly answered all my questions. Ali knows Santa Barbara- each and every neighborhood. She is very respected because of her intelligence and integrity. I would not hesitate to  recommend Ali Evans to anybody. She is the best.

~Kathi Whalen

Ali was absolutely amazing to work with. She totally got our aesthetic and found us a perfect house on the FIRST walk through that we did. Not only was she on top of everything, but everyone that she recommended from the broker to the escrow officer was amazing. Being first time homeowners, we were  nervous going into the process but Ali made the experience completely seamless.

~ Amber & Eugene Gimelberg

I've met a lot of real estate agents who seem very nice and helpful and Ali is well more than a step above that. She knows what she's doing; she is super responsive; she gets all the details covered that you would not even have thought about; she has every contact you would need; and she is genuinely a good person. It feels silly not being able to give her more than five stars. She gets things done.

~ Julian Alwill

Ali was absolutely wonderful to work with! She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and her responsiveness is unparalleled. Throughout the time we searched for a house with Ali, we felt that she truly cared about helping us find the right house for us. And when we got discouraged about the  prospects, she came with some more prospects and information to encourage us. Ali is absolutely the best!

~Concetta Conkling

10/10! She made home-buying a very positive experience. She is very knowledgeable and consistently guided us in the appropriate direction. She knew things to look/ask for that I never would have known about. She made our dream come true and did so with loads of positivity and no stress. I can't imagine a better agent/experience. Thank you, Ali!

~Meghan and Walter

Ali provided a top-notch experience for my first purchase in the Santa Barbara area. She was an expert partner throughout the process. I couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience. Ali helped me all along the way from developing search criteria, identifying suitable properties to negotiating offers and all the way through to the final closing paperwork; I ultimately ended up in the home I really wanted. Even when she went on a short vacation, she was still plugged-in and extremely responsive. After the transaction closed, she remained engaged to ensure that everything went well and there were no unpleasant surprises post-close. I would highly recommend Ali as an excellent professional and trusted partner for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

~ Seth Harvey

Ali is such a wonderful realtor, it's hard to describe in less than multiple pages.  We were searching for a rental/second home in Santa Barbara and she was the first realtor to call us back and the most responsive, knowledgeable and prepared realtor I have ever met.  She thinks of and covers every aspect of the process.  She is patient, low pressure and knows how to negotiate the best deal for her client.  I've used 4 different realtors on various transactions in my life....Ali Evans is the best I've worked with, hands down!  She has a client for life!!
~ Jeff & Christie Forshey

Ali is absolutely amazing! Incredibly attentive, responsive, and diligent. We trusted that she always had our best interest in mind as she identified houses to show us. She listened to our likes and dislikes and adjusted accordingly. Ultimately she made a very long and overwhelming process of buying a house very easy. Her service continued long after we closed on our house. We are so appreciative for all of the help she provided!  

~ Christy Borneman

Ali is fabulous! She recently helped us find an investment property, and guided us through the negotiation and purchase. Although it was a fairly complicated transaction, she made it seem easy. She was quick to answer our questions and was extremely knowledgeable about residential income real estate.   Ali went above and beyond, setting up appointments for inspections, zoning, and surveying. She made sure we were kept informed throughout the escrow process and handled all the details quickly and efficiently. We look forward to working with Ali again in the future. 

~ Liana Friend 

Ali is a wonderful hardworking Realtor, a person of integrity and honesty. She was our listing agent last month and can say she guided us through the process smoothly. Ali from start to finish was always very informative and kept good communication with us. She is a true  professional in the business, along side of that, Ali always has a cheerful attitude which helps in the emotional roller coaster of selling your home. Ali took the time to stage our home with minimum costs out of our pocket which was just one of her many special things she did for us. We had offers within a couple of days and the home sold in less then a month. We highly recommend Ali Evans if you are going to be listing or buying a home. Thank you Ali! 

~ The Millers

Ali is amazing! She supported us throughout the entire process without making us feel ‘rushed’ or ‘pushed’. She kept us in the loop the whole way and communicated with all parties involved including loan officer, title company, and seller. She always looked out for our best interest and provided options within our budget and what we were looking for. Overall, a fantastic experience with someone who made you feel like a person and not just a client. She was also very flexible and did her very best to stay in contact/meet with us anytime we had concerns/questions.  

~ David Jackson

Ali did such a great job handling everything when I purchased my home in Santa Barbara, so when it came time to sell the place, I knew she was the one for the job. Ali is always on the ball- responsive, available and one step ahead of the game. She also goes above and beyond the call of duty to  make sure everything goes smoothly. Her attitude is supportive, but not pushy and she will definitely put the energy in to make sure the sale is successful. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

~ Mari Larangeria

No words can describe the true pleasure it has been to work with Ali Evans. Extremely professional, we never had to worry about missing a deadline, always available and thorough in all dealings in regards of the house. We strongly recommend Ali Evans for your future purchase and/or selling of your  house. She handles both very elegantly.

~ Fatima Rahmanovic

Ali had been helping us look for the right property for quite some time when we finally found it. It was not an easy transaction by any means but she had the expertise and dedication to push it through to closing. We cannot say enough about her professionalism and hard work throughout the  process, we highly recommend Ali to help you find the right home!

~ Brian & Traci Miller

I just purchased my first home through Ali and I could not be happier with the service she provided. Ali helped me get through all the intense paperwork hurdles and made the entire process seem easy. Ali also consistently acted as my advocate to title, to my loan officer and during negotiations  with the seller's realtors. I always felt like I had someone looking after my interests in this transaction.  Cannot say enough great things about the service I received from Ali. I would, and already have, recommended her to friends.

~ Victoria Riordan

My husband and I loved working with Ali! She helped us navigate an unusually complicated escrow, and made every step along the way so much simpler. She is great about keeping you updated during the process and making sure you are informed and confident about whatever decision you are making. I  always felt like she had our best interest in mind and like we were a top priority for her. We would highly recommend her! 

~ Monica & Jordan

Ali provided truly extraordinary service from when we first began exploring the area to well beyond the close. Initially she choose a variety of homes based on our vision She listened to our preferences and steadily refined the search based on our feedback. She kept us up to date as new homes came on the market. She coordinated viewings on short notice. And well after the close of the sale she continues to help us with preparing our new home for our arrival. She has found contractors and supervised painters.... She is an extraordinary agent, devoted to providing excellent service to her clients.

She was incredibly prompt and very accommodating.

Ali is great! She always made my wife and I feel like we were special. She takes the extra time needed to walk you through this process. We were first time home buyers and Ali really helped to ease the stress. When it came time to make a move on a home, she was there steering the ship. When things  needed to get done, she was there to make sure it happened. We would not be home owners without her. I will recommend her to anyone that will listen.

Ali was phenomenal helping us find a home! She always had her homework done, responded promptly and thoroughly, and consistently was able to refine the search based on our feedback. When it came to the purchase process, she was invaluable helping us deal with a bear of an out-of-town bank. I have no idea what we would have done without her.

~ Sean Mayuga

Ali did a great job in helping me find my dream property. She was very patient with me as I took a long time and looked at many different homes. When we found the one I ended up getting it was a foreclosure and the bank only gave us 30 days to close escrow during the holidays. Ali was all over it  getting me the paperwork on time and checking everything I needed. We actually closed the day before Christmas 30 days after we opened escrow. I highly recommend Ali she is a true professional. I hope to work with her again in the future when I purchase my next property. 

~ John Leenhouwers

We couldn’t have gotten our condo without Ali! She is so knowledgeable and was easy to get ahold of. She spent lots of time explaining things to me as a first time homebuyer with lots of questions! There were multiple offers, and her negotiation skills got us the house!

~ Caitlin & Derek Musashe

In every situation, she has been very professional in getting the job accomplished in a short length of time and has addressed every situation that has arisen in a timely manner.  I appreciate her attention to detail and the ability she puts forth in regards to taking ownership of the situation.  She always came to us with a positive attitude and with a willingness to work.  I would highly recommend Ali.  

~Sarah Dandona

It has been my pleasure working with Ali.  Ali was always very organized, approachable and prompt with returning phone calls. She was very fair at balancing my needs and requests and was able to come up with solutions that made everyone happy.  Ali is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat, which made her very easy to work with.  

~ Diane Garmendia

I found Ali at an open house and liked the place so much that I was determined to at least submit an offer. Being a first time home buyer, I had little knowledge of what I needed to do. She provided recommendations for lenders and within two days, with her help I was able to get pre-approved by a  lender and also submit an on-time offer. Two days later the offer was accepted and escrow started. She guided me through the entire escrow process and kept me on track with meeting my deadlines. For any questions I had, she was diligent to seek answers and update me on status. I also appreciated that she was able to communicate with me frequently via text message. She is simply a very nice person and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to any person needing a reliable realtor. 

~ Mark Waldinger

We were new to the Santa Barbara area, and can't speak highly enough about Ali's local knowledge, commitment, patience, availability and insights. We worked with her remotely as we had not yet moved, which presented numerous challenges, but she was highly responsive to communications and available  whenever we we in town to show us neighborhoods and properties, We ended up with a house we love, which was identified by Ali outside our typical parameters...she took the time to learn what we really valued and honed in on some great options, this one included. The only challenging part of the process was price guidance, which is tougher in Santa Barbara compared to other areas we've lived due to lack of comps. Anyone moving into the area should be prepared to go it alone somewhat in figuring out market value, but Ali was with us all the way to help us navigate that aspect.

~David & Carrie Griffiths

Ali Evans was completely wonderful to work with. We spent a lot of time going to many open houses and she was extremelty patient with this process. She was super responsive to calls and texts with properties we were interested in. She was very knowledgeable about how to keep things moving quickly 

~Nicole Thompson

Ali worked with us for several years while our daughter considered condos, duplexes, and single family homes as her first real estate purchase. Even with our broad and changing ideas about what might suit our daughter, Ali was able to find a wide range of properties for us to consider and remained  very attentive. Ali coached us in getting our loan pre-approval so that we'd be able to move fast when the right property came along, and capably wrote several offers and back-up offers on our behalf. Ali is very responsive and knows a lot about the community and building construction. She's a good communicator and unfailingly pleasant to work with. Ali's also got a great grasp of details and will make sure that every single thing that needs to get done, gets done. Ali really knows the business, knows how to make things happen, and was also able to provide us references to a variety of capable vendors. I can't say enough about Ali Evans!

~Carrie Topliffe

Ali was great in every regard, starting with her response time. She responded from my first call within 5 minutes and was just as attentive every time I called. We closed are deal in record time, one of the fastest according to our loan officer. That was only possible with Ali being on top of  every issue and responding very quickly as the many complex issues came up. She was GREAT!!!

~Ken Looney

Ali is an amazing realtor! She is professional, responsive, helpful and patient. She stuck with us for 5 years until we found a house that worked for us. I highly recommend her to find you your next dream property.

~Jamie Frederick

What a pleasure it was to work with Ali. From the very first meeting we knew we were in good hands. She was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us expert, informative advice on pricing. She was helpful with assisting us in navigating expectations of the process of selling our home and  extremely personable while interacting with us and potential buyers. All this and she got us a price above asking! We would highly recommend Ali!

~Dot Adams

Ali is fantastic. Working with her through the process of identifying a house, purchasing that house, and now preparing to move into our new home has been a pleasure. We first contacted Ali about the possibility of relocating to Santa Barbara. We were considering several locations for our move.  Despite the real chance that we would not chose Santa Barbara, Ali took the time to speak with us, identify a first list of potential properties, and then take us to see properties when we visited Santa Barbara. She is very knowledgeable about the area and took the time to educate us about the various neighborhoods. She listened to our feedback and quickly understood our preferences in a home. She was able to identify properties that were a good fit for us so we could make good use of our subsequent house hunting visits. Once we found the right house, Ali was extremely helpful in providing insight and data on the value of the property and helped us negotiate the purchase. The process was efficient and effective. We now own the house and are preparing for our move. Being remote, we have needed quite a bit of help in getting the house ready for us to move in (various small repairs and modification, painting, etc.). Ali is a wealth of knowledge and resources. Despite the purchase being done, she has continued to be very responsive and helpful. She has gone well above what is required and we greatly appreciate it.

~Eric Saltzman

Ali Evans is absolutely stellar. She helped sell my mom's house within a week at significantly over asking price. I can't recommend her enough!

Ali Evans is a terrific realtor!  She understood what we were looking for (even though we kept changing our minds), brought us a number of properties to consider, was very knowledgeable about the market and the strengths and issues of each property.  Ali is very detail-oriented, and doesn't let anything slip through the cracks. She's even charming when she's reminding you of the things you were supposed to do and forgot. She was a great guide and coach through every moment of sticker shock and complicated real estate processing.  We highly recommend Ali!
