The decision to buy or sell a home is one of the most important decisions anyone makes during their lifetime, so it goes without saying that finding a great Realtor is imperative. I have seen first hand the difference it can make.
Growing up in South Lake Tahoe I watched my mom help her clients find their dream homes. More importantly, I saw how seriously she took her job and how deeply she cared about her customers, and as a result, I was able to witness the lifelong friendships she developed with those clients. Additionally, I was also able to work alongside my dad, who helped his customers build their dream homes. During that time, I developed a thorough knowledge of the construction process; from foundation work to finish carpentry and everything in between.
Now, these experiences allow me to better serve my clients. I focus on the wants and needs of my clients and tailor my system for each unique situation. I put an emphasis on communication and preemptive action. My strategies and marketing constantly adapt to new information and I leverage the latest technology and most up to date market statistics to do so. Moreover, I make a point to walk my clients through the buying or selling process, with an approach that is based on teaching an informing. This way, buyers and sellers alike are confident that they have all the information they need to make the decisions that are best for them, and that is my goal.
"Thanks to Ian, I'm unbelievably busy designing my new landscaping and meeting with contractors to remodel my new home. Ian made all of this possible by literally saving the deal to sell our geodesic home in Paso Robles so I could relocate to Morgan Hill. Finding a lender for a geodesic dome was almost an insurmountable obstacle. The buyer's agent gave up trying after an initial 20 turn downs. Ian, however, remained optimistic and took the process of finding a lender upon himself. He worked tirelessly 24/7 exploring every possibility until he was successful. Ian has great negotiation skills and communicated with the buyer's agent but also the two agents involved in my purchasing a contingent property in Morgan Hill. His positive, confident attitude reassured everyone that he really could make everything turn out right in the end. And he did. Enjoy working with Ian. He's the best!
"Ian is an absolutely fantastic agent. We have been working with Ian for a year to find our dream home in SLO. He was patient, exceptionally responsive, knowledgable, and helpful. In the search stage, he helped us focus in on the SLO neighborhood that was best for us. In the bidding/negotiation stage, Ian guided us through a very extensive 5-week negotiation with a very difficult seller. In the contract stage, he went above and beyond by even going to the house to meet inspectors when we weren't able to. After closing, we had difficulties getting the seller to get out of the home. Ian assisted us to gain full possession of our house, while providing the seller with empathy and respect. We highly recommend Ian and hope to work with him again in the future.
"When I engaged Ian my home was in the middle of being remodeled and prepared for sale. The remodel was extensive, and there were MANY decisions to make regarding which improvements would actually increase the value of the home, and which ones would not really make a difference. The remodel was costly, and the budget was limited. It was extremely important for me to be sure that every dollar I spent would result in a good return. I would never have been able to sort through all that without Ian's unflagging expert help. He always discussed things thoroughly, and never hesitated to consult with other agents at his office if he thought they could add perspective. At the end of the day I feel that the money invested in the house was all wisely spent thanks to Ian's careful attention to things, and I'm certain that it resulted in the highest possible sale price. When the time came to put the house on the market Ian handled everything very effectively, including determining the most advantageous timing of all of the milestones (when to show the house, when to start receiving offers, and when to accept an offer). As offers and counter-offers were going back and forth Ian provided excellent guidance on what to do at each point. In every case he not only advised me of the best course of action, but also explained in detail the reasoning behind it. He managed the entire sales process carefully and thoroughly, constantly stayed on top of things, and kept me informed of what was going on at every step. He was always ready to answer any question I had no matter how small (and I had a LOT of them!). Ian is friendly, genuine, sincere, and completely trustworthy. He has a great deal of real estate knowledge and expertise together with a sincere desire to help people to the very best of his ability. Through-out the entire time I worked with Ian I never doubted that he truly had my best interest at heart. Without hesitation I recommend Ian to anyone planning to sell their home. I benefited immensely from his expertise and care, and I would engage him again in an instant.
"After several disappointments with other real estate agents my wife and I contacted Ian Chandler at "Coldwell Banker s Real Estate". Ian inspected our 33 acre property, home and detached garage and suggested taking a video of the property to show the great views and potential. None of the other companies suggested this and I am convinced that this played a major role in getting our information out there. We discussed an asking price based on the existing assets and it's potential. Ian found a buyer, we began the process and Ian kept us informed and guided us through the process. There were some frustrating bumps in the road but Ian maintained his optimism and forged on when things seemed rather bleak. The buyer's agent dropped the ball on this transaction so Ian took over and actually found a lender for the buyer, something his agent should have done! Next came the escrow procedure which is very involved but, again, Ian held our hand and guided us through the process to the end and we successfully closed the deal. If it were up to me Ian should have gotten the entire commission for this transaction. He did his job as well as the buyers agent's responsibilities. He is a young and enthusiastic very professional agent and he gets our kudos for a job well done with an effort above and beyond all expectations. If you are looking to buy or sell your real estate you would be hard pressed to find a more professional agent than Ian Chandler.
