I’ve bought real estate in SLO since 2003, so have met a number of realtors, but recently, was so fortunate to work with David & Debbie Garcia @ Bjerre & Garcia. I’d been hearing from others how good they are – and found out with a transaction that closed in March. It was such a good experience that I feel they deserve “Brokers of the Year” No matter how busy they were, they always had time for questions, and are dedicated to making sure the client is happy. They negotiate better than anyone I’ve used – and when challenges come up, they are problem solvers! You will NOT find better service – and that’s a rarity these days, where realtors are moving fast to close deals and build their bottom line. Debbie & David cared more about the client, and take whatever time is needed to achieve a successful deal. They just don’t give up, stay on top of things, are detail-oriented and ethical. They possess “success traits” that make a huge difference…I’ve recommended them to friends – and believe you will not find a better team than Bjerre & Garcia Realty…David, Debbie and Ruth (who manages the office) are completely in step and complement one another to get the job done right
Excellent service! Wonderful experience throughout the whole process. I could reach them at absolutely anytime-including evenings and weekends-to answer any and all of my questions. They are extremely knowledgeable in every aspect. I was impressed with their follow up, leaving nothing unanswered. I recommend them highly to my family and friends, and look forward to working with them in the future for any real estate needs.
I’ve lived in a property of theirs for 1.5 years now and they’ve always been quick to reply and help with any issues we’ve had with our house.
My husband and I moved to San Luis Obispo a few years ago and were a little hesitant to rent in the city as I, during my graduate program, rented with other property management companies who were simply put, awful. Bjerre and Garcia has been an incredible property management company for us. They are responsive, sincere, and beyond helpful with all minor and major issues we faced during our tenure at our apartment. They also did an amazing job balancing their relationship with us, the tenants, with their direct client, the owner. I could not have asked for a better experience. More recently, Ruth was hired and took over the management of our property and I can not say enough good things about her. She is informative, always available, and truly cares about the people she works for. Specifically, Ruth helped us navigate the ins and outs of ending our lease early after we bought our first home and helped us through the process of finding another renter to take over our lease with no hassles. I personally have not ever met a property management company that has ever been so accommodating.
We worked with Debbie and Dave in purchasing our house here in SLO. They were there to answer all our questions along the way. What could have been a daunting process was made so much easier with their help. We appreciated their pleasant attitudes and immediate responses to our calls. It’s nice to work with people you can feel comfortable with and know that they will do everything they can to help you. We look forward to working with them again.
I really appreciated how David and Debbie helped me on my last real estate purchase. It was a little tricky (bank sale), but they led me through the process and made the transaction a successful one. I had tried to negotiate on my own and was getting nowhere. With their assistance, it was a snap. THANK YOU!
As a first time home buying I was naive and was badly taken advantage of by a SELLER’s AGENT… Escrow was emergently cancelled and I re-entered with MY ANGELS – Debbie and David to my RESCUE!!! They know SLO inside and out – and they are absolute Experts in Real Estate. I wish I could give a 10 Star Rating!!! – Katherine W.
We met Dave and Debbie at a few open houses in our SLO neighborhood. At the time we were casually looking for a fixer home that we could later rent to a family or students. Dave in particular was very helpful in finding us the perfect fixer house, just days before it officially went on the market. He was easy to work with, very responsive, extremely trustworthy, and we felt like we were in very good hands with his considerate experience. The process went very smoothly, from beginning to end. And because we didn’t have much landlord experience, he offered his help in finding the right tenant, providing a rental agreements, checking potential tenants’ backgrounds, drawing up the rental leases, and helpful tips along the way. This was so incredibly generous of them…over and beyond! Working with his property manager was nothing but excellent. Ruth was very responsive, helpful and professional. If you are in the market to buy or rent, call Debbie and Dave ASAP. You will be very pleased you did.
We rented a house through Bjerre & Garcia Realty for over 2 years and had a great experience. Both Dave and Debbie were always very friendly and helpful. We have rented for many years and we were very pleased with how great they were as property managers. Ruth was great at replying quickly to any questions or concerns or repairs needed. She was thorough and easy to work with. We are thankful for the time we had in their rental property and would highly recommend them.
Debbie and Dave were a tremendous help in getting us into our new house. They found us exactly what we were looking for and fought to get it for us. There were other offers on the house we wanted and without Debbie’s persistence we wouldn’t of gotten it. I highly recommend Bjerre and Garcia Realty
I have worked with Bjerre & Garcia Realty for years with a number of my rental properties and real estate transactions. They are 4th generation locals and I depend on them to give me the best knowledge of the area and they always have. I’ve bought three houses through them, and have rented out all three through them. They’ve always been professional, friendly, knowledgeable and provided over-the-top service no matter what time or day I call. Our transactions have always been extremely smooth and successful. Their long-time history in this area cannot be found with most other real estate companies. I highly recommend them as realtors and/or property managers for anyone who wants the best real estate experience in SLO County! I feel fortunate to have found this company and always look forward to working with them.
