Brooke helped my find my perfect little home in Arroya Grande.
Brooke was very patient and helpful during my search for a home on the Central Coast. I was moving from Fresno and didn't know exactly where I wanted to live on the Central Coast. Brooke took her time in showing me properties. She guided me through escrow and was always available to me. She's the BEST!
A new friend in the real estate business!
Everyone wants to have a friend or relative in the industry we need at the time. Be it a mechanic, a computer repair person, a handyman, or even a realtor. From the first conversation, Brooke became that person for us. She's simply a friend who happens to work in real estate and she does it very well!
We relocated from the Bay Area so much of our interaction was over the phone and email. Brooke is always quick to answer or respond every time we reach out. Her experience and connection in the industry and area proved invaluable more than once! On one day in particular, I was feeling very frustrated with information I was getting from the finance company. Within seconds, Brooke sensed my frustration over the phone, put my in contact with an expert in the field which she works with and in no time my mind was at ease once again. That's the kind of person I want to work with regardless of the industry but especially with a purchase as important as a home.
I would recommend Brooke to my closest friends and family without hesitation every day, every time!

The perfect agent for us!
When we were selling my late mother's home in Morro Bay, CA, a friend recommended Brooke Townsend to us. She was the perfect agent to work with long distance. She knows the area well and made it easy for us to work with her because of her attention to detail. We decided to sell the house as is, and she handled all the preparation, always keeping us in the loop with what was going on. She had several offers and the one we chose was a great family that would fit well in the neighborhood and also offered $20,000 more than the asking price. Brooke led us through the process of inspections, etc. and going above and beyond in taking care of things. Brooke made it easy for us as we had never sold a house before. Always keeping in touch, Brooke is very easy to work with, very knowledgeable and we would recommend her, with confidence, to anyone who needs a realtor.

Brooke was professional, great communicator and able to handle both sides of a transaction without a flaw.
To Whom It May Concern:
I worked with Brooke Townsend and her team starting approximately one year ago when I was in the market for a home in Morro Bay. My daughter-in-law, who is a real estate agent in Northern California, took the time to interview numerous agents here in Morro Bay to find someone that she felt would be both a good fit for me in my home search and whom she felt would be honest and responsive to me especially since I was still living in Northern California during my search.
Brooke turned out to be a pleasure to work with! I recently retired out of the corporate world and have high expectations for communication skills, responsiveness, industry and local knowledge, and integrity. Brooke far exceeded my expectations.
She is highly familiar with the SLO county real estate market due to her extensive experience here. She not only knows the market here, she also has great contacts with local craftsmen and other workers whom I have successfully employed over the past year as I have had various work done to upgrade my home.
Brooke stayed with me every step of the way, explaining in lay terms the ins and outs of purchasing a home, working with mortgage brokers, title companies, etc. She never hesitated to take the initiative to follow up with folks to get a status on progress and communicate that to me in terms that I could understand.
She was never more than a phone call, email or text message away. I could count on her to get back to me very quickly whenever I had questions.
I recommend her without hesitation to anyone who is in need of an excellent real estate agent.

Brooke Townsend and Trudy Sidener have been my real estate agents since 2013.
They have assisted me in the purchase of two homes and the sale of one home.

clients interests. They throroughly reasearh the market and are up to date on the laws
and regulations having to do with real estate.
I have grown to trust their judgement and I value their opinion. They are a great team
and I highly recommend them as either listing or selling agents.

Smart, affable, hard working and successful
We were very particular about the realtor we retained for our house search in SLO County. From the start, Brooke demonstrated a work ethic that we appreciated. She understood our concerns, brought suitable properties to our attention, then quickly closed the purchase with professionalism and speed. Would not hesitate to engage her again for a purchase or a sale¿she¿s one of the very best.
I really lucked out when I got Brooke as my agent. Brooke was just the right person to have by my side through the roller coaster ride of my first time home purchase. She made sure I had all the right inspections in place and that I had all the best vendors giving me bids on needed repairs. Brooke was a beacon of optimism in what was at times a very bleak search. The first time we toured houses was right after I'd learned I might not qualify for a loan at all. This didn't bother Brooke. She still took the time to show me places and to learn what I was looking for. I was returning to the area from hours north, so when I finally found my dream home, I was willing to buy it sight unseen. Brooke toured it for me and even checked out a runner up on my list -- all on her own accord. When it came time to negotiate the price and repairs, Brooke was shrewd and assertive. She literally had to beg me to let her do her job, as I was so anxious to give up my negotiating power to ensure I got the place. She ended up saving me more than $10,000! Brooke is not just great at her job, she's a fun person. I wish I had the resources to buy more houses, just so we could hang out some more! Jenni James JD
Professional, knowledgeable and friendly!
Buying a home with Brookes assistance was so pleasant! Brooke has extensive knowledge of the community. She provided us with help that was friendly, thorough and professional. Brooke was always available to us, our phone calls and text messages were immediately responded too. With her guidance we succeeded in purchasing a great retirement property! We highly recommend Brooke. Karen and John Hostetler

MY RECENT SALE OF PROPERTY IN MORRO BAY WITH BROOKE TOWNSEND AS MY REALTOR:
From my very first meeting with Brooke she was so personable and sincere. It was very easy to trust her. She is so knowledgeable about the surrounding properties and the value changes right up to my date of sale.
She handled every aspect so professionally and I was especially impressed with the way she navigated each showing with such careful concern during these Covid 19 restrictions. She was equally concerned with the potential buyers and ourselves. She is very professional, but warm. She handled our buyer with the utmost consideration while honoring all of our requests. The paperwork was of course a nightmare, but Brook was willing to walk us through everything. It was the same after the sale with the escrow papers. She saw to it that we were accompanied with every paper and online signature. Selling property is hard and for us emotional because this cottage has been in our family for so long. I have to say Brooke made it a joy. She goes over and above the call of duty! I only hope your Morro Bay Team realizes what a jewel you have in your profession.
Brooke was great ... and incredibly patient.
Brooke hung in with us for almost 9 months to ensure that we understood the market and found the best match. She counseled is through escrow issues and in the process also became a friend. Cant ask for anything better than that! Cynthia Jackson JD

Great Local and Knowledgeable Left Coast Realtor
We worked with Brooke to purchase our new home in Los Osos. Being new to the area, it was especially helpful working with someone who could help us learn about the different towns of SLO County and to navigate through the purchase process and even with problems after we moved in. I couldn't recommend Brooke more. Christina Newton

What you do is truly quite amazing. To be a part of this major process with folks you just met to folks that may have been customers or friends of yours for some time. You help people find their "spot." That takes a lot of flexibility, patience, and kindness. Can't thank you enough, Brooke. You are so good at what you do. Keep your pace.

Recently (June 2019) my wife and I sold our mobile home in Sea Oaks Mobile Home Park, Los Osos CA. Brooke Townsend made the entire experience of selling our house an efficient and comfortable (as could be) process. As sellers, we needed guidance as to what to do to prepare our house for sale including what were reasonable timelines (target dates) to get things done. Also, Brooke did due diligence and very fine work in respect to pricing our mobile home.
It was easy to communicate with Brooke by telephone, text or e-mail.
The buyer had some glitches and ups and downs that Brooke helped to resolve and still protected our interests. We too had some moving out problems that Brooke Townsend solved for us.
My wife had met Brooke in our park about 10-months earlier than our sale date and I had met her about two-years earlier in a social setting. We were both (independently) impressed with her warm personality, friendliness, and interest in selling homes for her clients. We picked Brooke because of her knowledge of the real estate market in our area and specifically for her knowledge of the local mobile home market.
So to speak, in regards to our business with her, we were and are happy campers. We highly recommend Brooke Townsend as a Real Estate agent and more!
Also, we wish to acknowledge Real Estate Agent, Trudy Sidener, who represented the buyer of our house. She too did an excellent job of helping her client purchase our house; that certainly helped us have some peace of mind along with the efforts of Brooke Townsend. Dave and Pat Akey
Brooke helped me sell raw land in another county - it was very ... unconventional
Brooke has been a long time friend - and helped me sell raw land with a gold mine on it - in another county. It was an unconventional transaction - and many Realtors would not have taken on The Project. But she helped me negotiate a deal that was fair to all - and also stepped up when I
Disclosed - some last minute ... Disclosures
She also helped me in the aftermath with some issues that arose - post sale. Having sold another
Mining property in another state just prior to this transaction - I can attest - that she followed through to the highest degree - and was there to answer all questions and issues as they arose.
Brooke was such a pleasure to work with. She has great local knowledge, very enthusiastic, detail oriented and a skilled professional. Living out of the area when we purchased our home, Brooke made sure every detail was taken care of for us, she made our move painless and fun. She has a well coordinated team of professionals that handled all our inspections, repairs and escrow needs. She made our dream of living on the central coast come true and is someone we call a friend as well. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling real estate.
