Barbara and I want to thank you for your work in selling our home. Especially, we want to thank you for your assistance in readying the house for the sale. To take a residence of 25 years, clean it up, clean it out, bring it up to current aesthetic standards and anticipate any home inspection issues is a daunting a potentially expensive task-if one expects to sell at a high price. Your guidance and input were invaluable as was your long list of tilers, painters, carpenters and landscapers who were ready to come in at extremely short notice to make the house perfect. It is no exaggeration to say that the several months we lived at “744” after all the work had been done, may have been our most satisfying time there. That we got the looking so well with your help also firmed our resolve to hold out for a price that we considered worthy of the home. Thank you again.

We have worked with Victor on a number of- transactions, both from the viewpoint of the buyer as well as the seller. Victor’s many years of first-hand experience in construction and his understanding of design makes him an invaluable resource to every client. His expertise in analyzing and recommending the work required to prepare a property for purchase, and his insight into the small changes that will make a property the exact fit for a potential owner set him apart. He has a stable of excellent subcontractor contacts ready to assist in pre-sale or post-purchase modifications. As architects, we appreciate all the more the expertise Victor brings to any real estate transaction. His knowledge of the market, his experience in design and construction, and his ability to communicate his ideas make Victor an indispensable team member in any real estate transaction.

We have recently closed escrow on the sale of our Mesa home located at 825 Calle Malaga. Victor Plana was the listing agent and acted on our behalf during the sale and escrow. Victor was extremely easy to work with and he always was quite proactive during the entire process. This was especially helpful for us since we lived in San Diego County at the time. For example, Victor helped us find contractors to work on extensive landscaping and other improvements we did prior to sale. He was on site, made major decisions and gave direction to workers and even secured a big work team to work during May Day, when finding local available labor was very difficult. The results were a huge improvement and at a reasonable price. Victor also was able to “stage” the inside for showings that made the house look quite homey. He brought in a number of potential buyers through a series of open houses. He found what turned out to be the successful buyer, helped through the Zoning Information Report process, and really helped us through the escrow process. While we were a bit sad to let go of our home of seven years, we are very appreciative of his fine work as well as his cheerful and always upbeat attitude. Coldwell Banker should be proud to have Victor working on their behalf. We are certainly glad that he was working on ours.

It is my pleasure to commend Victor Plana for an excellent job in getting my house sold in a timely manner. Victor was knowledgeable and competent in marketing my home. In addition to spending weeks preparing the house for sale, he further enhanced the positive aspects of my home with many constructive suggestions. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Victor for quick and positive results, whether it be buyer or seller.
