Testimonials

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for all your efforts to sell Malolo. I appreciated your dedication to your job and your professional attitude throughout the long process. I also appreciated your daily telephone contact to keep me aware of every detail of the selling process. You were able to deal with every situation that came up and all  items on the schedule were accomplished in a professional and timely manner. I would recommend you to anyone that was either buying or selling a boat! Thanks again for a job well done. Have fun on your cruise. See you soon.

Lenny Kanner

Stephen,

I can't thank you enough for all your help in transitioning me into the Santa Barbara lifestyle. Your assistance and guidance in finding me the perfect J120 ("Screamer") for sail racing, the perfect Meridian 41 ('Smooth") for weekend live aboard and cruising, not to mention two prime 50' slips on the same Marina One finger was invaluable. Your referral to a real-estate broker (Wes Sinclair) who found my new house on the bluffs of Santa Barbara was also spot on. You are a true professional who goes the extra mile for your clients.

Stephen, 

I wanted to thank you again for your excellent guidance in the bidding and purchasing of my Ericson 25 "Peregrine" and slip. Everyone I've shown her to, including a few of my older, experienced
sailor friends, have all fallen in love.

 

I really couldn't be happier with the boat, and thanks again for going above and beyond with the time you took to explain (the boat's operations) and show me all the little details.
