    Benjamin gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    Rusty was absolutely fantastic to work with on the sale of our home. We gave him an extremely tight timeline for our sale, and he gave us everything we needed to get it done. His recommendations were spot-on, his expectations were completely reasonable, and his advice was great. Beyond that, Rusty is a constant professional, friendly, and enjoyable to work with. We really couldn't have done it without him.

    Thank you Ben, for the 5-star rating! I truly enjoyed and appreciated working with you and the family to help you sell your lovely Vacaville home and to be a part of your move to the eastern US this summer. I hope we can stay in touch periodically and I wish you and family the best of times and many fond memories in your new home and location.

    Dolores gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    I have worked with Rusty for a number of years and knew that, when the time came to sell my property, he was the realtor I would trust. Before listing the property, Rusty took the time to explain various options so that I could make the most educated decision on the route to take in selling my rental. Throughout the process, Rusty and his team were responsive and provided regular updates. Everything went well, and we were even able to close earlier than expected. I would highly recommend Rusty for any real estate needs.

    09/28/21
    Thank you Dolores for the 5-star rating! It was a pleasure working with you to help sell your rental property in town. Congratulations on the sale and I wish you continuous fun and successful experiences in your new place in southern CA!

    Suzanne gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    I contacted Rusty for a super fast sale and to assist with an out-of-state purchase of a home and he and his team did an amazing job connecting me with an out-of-state realtor for the new purchase, and he did a great job facilitating an excellent and speedy sale of my home in California. Rusty and his team were constantly in contact, keeping me up-to-date on information and ensuring that the sale took place smoothly and quickly.
    Response from Rusty
    07/05/21
    A big thank you to you and Don, and all others involved with your sale and move! You all were so cooperative and in-action to get the house prepared so quickly and to take on all that was needed to facilitate such a quick and successful sale. Your military training and experience was a definite asset! I wish you a wonderful and exciting new chapter in your lives and hope to stay in touch. Oh, and thank you so much for the wine. We're enjoying every bottle!

    Carolyn gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    I've bought and sold multiple homes with Rusty and will continue to use him because he is one of the most experienced and professional real estate agents in Solano. He knows the market, listens and understands my needs, shows me what I should do to prepare my house for sale and has always sold my homes for top dollar. I can't even imagine using anyone else. He's the best!

    Karen gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    I called Rusty to help me find and purchase my very first home. I relied on his expertise quite a bit since I didn't know anything about real estate or the home buying process. He got me in touch with a great lender and patiently walked me through the entire process from getting financed to looking at multiple houses, to closing. I am very satisfied with the service Rusty provided to me through this process. He was always available to answer any questions and calm any fears I had during the process. He went above and beyond to make sure I was getting a home I would be happy in, for years to come. I will definitely be calling Rusty when I do decide to sell! Great service all around!
    Response from Rusty
    07/05/21
    Thank you Karen, and CONGRATULATIONS! We a very excited to see you as the owner of your first home.

Please feel free to contact us any time if we can be of further assistance.

    Mary gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Rusty Simmons in buying our new home and selling our old home in Vacaville. He and his assistant Jessica were available anytime we had questions about the sale and answered them thoroughly. Rusty knew how much we liked the house we were buying and felt as good as we did when we successfully purchased it. We are now settling into our house and are grateful to Rusty and all involved in making our dream house become a reality.

    Hi Tim and Mary!, and Thank You for the great review! You both are a blast to know and to work with. I've appreciated all the multiple transactions we've handled for you over the many years since we met and I'm again extremely excited to see you finally in your N. Vacaville dream home. I enjoy working with you every time and value the friendship relationship that had developed!

    Rick gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Rusty was a real pleasure. For us, communication was at the top of our list. Not only did Rusty keep us informed on every step on the way, in many cases we felt like we were him only clients. Even with all the disruption with COVID-19, Rusty was very mindful of our expectations and health as well as potential buyers entering our home. I'd recommend Rusty to anyone in need of an Agent that is mindful of your wants & needs and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure your complete satisfaction.

    Thank you Rick and Pam for the wonderful review! I really enjoyed working with you both again. Your fun personalities and continuous cooperation helped to make the whole process and transaction a smooth sailing. Many congrats and well wishes with your new home and with the new chapter in your lives. Not only do I appreciate the business we've done together over the years, but I truly value the friendship we have the most.

    Tara gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    Rusty made his first "as is" offer to purchase the home I was selling in March. Due to Covid and other delays with the estate, we couldn't close escrow until November. During those months, Rusty was consistently in contact and diligent in making sure I had ALL the information needed to complete the transaction. The price he offered on the home was fair, and the items he found needing repair were reasonable. Never did I feel he was trying to "low ball" the deal. While professional in his interactions, he is also "down to earth" and genuine.
    Response from Rusty
    11/26/20
    Thank you very much such a great review and feedback. We truly enjoyed working with you and thank you for going through all the necessary steps and processes to clear the estate for sale. We're looking forward to starting the full remodel and will contact you once it's completed so you can come down and look at the magical things we did to the house.

    John gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    Rusty and his team were outstanding! He was referred to us by one of our friends that had used his services in the past. This man is on it! Attention to details, consistent communication and honest. He follows through with what he says and sold our house in only 5 days, for more than we thought it could sell for. We will definitely recommend Rusty and his team to anyone that needs to buy or sell their house.

    John gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    It's not often you find an agent that you know you can trust from the very first day you meet them. Rusty is that person. He was referred to us by a friend of our family that had worked with him several times in the past to buy and sell their homes. From our first meeting we knew he'd take good care of us. He took the time to go over the selling process and to discuss our needs so he could determine how to best help us sell our house. He made great suggestions on some minor improvements to prepare for the sale and reviewed options as to his marketing strategy. As a result, our house sold in less than 2 weeks with multiple offers and for above the list price. The closing process went exceptionally smooth and we are definitely satisfied with him and his real estate team. We definitely will refer him and his team to anyone that needs a good real estate agent.

    Thank you John! I'm glad you called me to help you sell your house. It was a pleasure working with you and your family and I look forward to visiting you all in your new custom home once it's completed. Let's keep in touch, and let us know if we can help others you know that are looking for an experienced real estate broker.

    If I could give Rusty ten stars, I would. Rusty was so helpful when I was selling my house. He was always available to answer my texts, emails, and phone calls. He is honest and patient, and even though I fought it sometimes, his advice was always spot on. He is respectful, knowledgeable, and upbeat. This is the third time I have depended on his expertise to buy or sell, and I would never trust anyone else. I highly recommend Rusty for buying or selling your home.

    Tom gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    We chose Rusty to sell our home because we have known him for many years & have always known him to be honest, trustworthy & very professional. He gave us ideas to make the house more attractive to buyers, options that would bring a.higher price. We retired and moved out of state. Rusty kept us informed each time it was shown, gave us continued feedback and details of the offers that came in. He made the whole process very easy. He is well known and respected in the community and surrounding counties. He also has an assistant Jessica, that is awesome also. If we had to sell another house we would choose Rusty again, he gets the job done!

    James and Sheryl gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    We can't thank Rusty Simmons enough. He helped us sell our last two homes, and buy property to build our present home. We trusted him so much that we encouraged our parents to contact him when they were selling homes. We had used another realtor in the past and we can truly say, that experience paled in comparison. Rusty's marketing skills helped us sell quickly and for over asking price.

    Thank you soooo much for allowing me and my team to help you with your real estate needs over all these years. It's always been a pleasure to work with you and to know you appreciate what we do. Please call on me and/or my staff at any time should you need us again in the future!

    Scott gave Rusty 5 stars out of 5
    Rusty has a great knowledge of the local area. He helped identify which areas of the house were important to the most likely type of buyer for my property, letting me focus my time and money on targeted, best bang for the buck, improvements before I relocated. I had already moved to a new town by the time the house sold but that did not cause any issues and the online tools were easy to use. A notary local to my new area was dispatched for the final signing and the process completed without additional stress (at least no more than the stress that comes with selling a house.) In the end I accepted an offer within a month and for above list price, in large part due to Rusty's advice during the negotiation phase.
    Response from Rusty
    10/20/19
    Thank you! We enjoyed working with you and appreciated all the effort you put into the property that helped it sell quickly. We'd love to work with you and your dad again, so let us know if we can help with any of you real estate needs in the future!

    "Rusty did a great job selling my mother's house. She is 85, and this is the first time she has had to sell by herself. (My father passed years ago.) Rusty was patient, explained everything, every step of the way, came to her place when she needed to sign papers. (She was not comfortable signing digitally.) Rusty, his assistant Jessica and his short list of painters, and handymen quickly got the place ready to sell. They did a beautiful job. The house went on the market at the beginning of March. In less than a week, we had secured a full price offer. Appraisal came in close to asking price. Both parties wanted escrow to go quickly and the house closed March 29th! I would highly recommend Rusty Simmons. He helped me sell my first place 30 years ago. He is professional, pays attention to details, is compassionate and knows the area"

    Thank you so much. We're glad we were there to help you and your mom with the preparation, marketing and sell of her house. The cooperation and helpfulness from you, your mom and family throughout the whole process made it smooth and uneventful. We strive for all our transactions to be like that. Also, a big Thank You again for allowing me to be of service to you 30 years ago! It seems like only yesterday.
