The Perfect Property

I had been searching for the perfect property, a family investment for over 4 months, but I was just not finding what met my needs, feeling discouraged with my search, I was about to take a break and look into other markets, and then I met Jessyka Soto of David Lyng Real Estate.
Jessyka was able to listen and understand my specific goals for this very important investment. The request was simple, find a place that will: provided a good return, is within 4 blocks of the beach, breweries, coffee, pizza, organic groceries, public transit, hiking/ biking trails, surf, and…is an ecologically sensitive building with no structural issues... Easy right!
Jessyka Soto accepted the challenge dug in and identified several properties that were a good fit. Jessyka worked long hours every day, answered my all questions precisely with a smile, showed me properties that were not on the market listing, and got me out of deals that were not a perfect fit! Jessyka worked through tough situations with grace, patience, and ease.
Once we identified the perfect property that fit all my criteria, Jessyka was still on duty working all hours of the day and night to facilitate this very important investment with clarity and minimal stress. When it comes to realtors, Jessyka Soto raises the bar!
My advice is: If you’re looking for a quality property, make sure you have Jessyka Soto on your team, and you will get what you desire… a real estate agent that works for you and a property that does too!

5 Star Agent

Jessyka was nothing short of a 5 start agent. I would definitely recommend her to all of my friends and family. our transaction started of simple but ended very complex, and she was nothing but kind, attentive, and professional the entire time through the process. I feel like we became friends and she worked very hard to make sure I was happy and taken care of in our transaction.
I would use Jessyka again, she was an amazing realtor!!!!

Always Available

Don't waste your time with any other agents, Jessyka is the best in Santa Cruz! We met her at an open house maybe 2-3 years before we were actually ready to buy. Like any business savvy person, she kept in touch and would check back in every so often to see if we were ready to start looking seriously. I think that was the first sign that she is detail oriented and has great follow up skills.

She was always quick to respond even in the evenings. She is very knowledgeable about the community and various neighborhoods. She was always available when we needed her and we never felt pressured into anything we didn't want for the sake of a sale. She truly shined during negotiations, getting our under asking offer accepted over two other offers. She truly cares about her clients and wants to help them find the best home for their needs.

We highly recommend Jessyka!

Fair and Honorable

I am a native Santa Cruz'n. I have been so blessed that I have been able to make multiple home purchases, 6 to be exact. Over the last 25 years I have dealt with many agents. All have various strengths in negotiation, the market, loans, city ordinance and policy.

I was so impressed with Jessyka's approach. She met up with my wife and I to discuss strategy; where we wanted to buy, if we would be selling our current home, timing etc. I had a "feeling" that she was really into helping us find our dream home.

She said I want my clients too be excited and elated about their move. She said, "this is a very stressful process." "If the strategy is right for your family we can make it happen together!"

We wanted an accelerated timeline, and that is exactly what we got. Jessyka is so professional, on time, communicates well, cautious with your money and is a fierce negotiator. She is also FAIR and honorable. I would also say she is very well connected in the field. Whatever services I needed she had reputable, punctual service providers. I couldn't have asked for more in a real estate transaction.

I read some of the reviews about her here on yelp. There is no doubt those of us who picked Jessyka feel well represented in our deal.

I didn't expect to feel so well cared for, my feeling was real. She wanted the best for us. I want the best for her too.
