    In 1980, Jeff Prostovich began his real estate career on the Central Coastal of California. He is currently an associate broker and San Luis Obispo office manager at Coldwell Banker Premier Real Estate, with 16 branches serving the Central Coast and Central Valley.

He owned and managed his own real estate firm for 8 years and managed a family retail herb and garden business, Heart's Ease, in Cambria for over 15 years with his wife, nature and garden author Sharon Lovejoy. Because of his business connections, he has handled numerous commercial property and business opportunity sales in Cambria and San Luis Obispo. He and his wife currently own a home in San Luis Obispo and income and commercial property in Lincoln County, Maine.

    Prior to real estate, Jeff was a postmaster, worked in law enforcement, and served in the Army Security Agency in the electronic intelligence field as a German linguist and translator.

He holds a degree in Administration of Justice and has taught business classes for Adult Education at Cuesta College and for various professional associations.

    Jeff enjoys nature, canoeing, renovating older homes, and sailing with any friend that invites him.

    My Client Testimonials

    My wife and I hired Jeff as a buyers agent. We were new to the area and had to look at many places in order to familiarize ourselves with the area. The longer the process went on, the more we liked working with him. We eventually found a place, made an offer and completed the purchase. Jeff was there every step the way, handling all the details, small and large. His helpful and professional attitude continued long after the sale was complete and he was paid. He stayed in touch, made sure all of our concerns were dealt with. He is not a take-the-money-and-run guy, he truly wants his clients to be satisfied. Like many, I find the real estate process to be stressful, and he is the perfect agent to work with. I highly recommend him.
    We first engaged Jeff Prostovich to sell our condo in 2014 but the market was very bad, and after trying to sell for 6 months, we decided with Jeffs guidance to rent our Oak Creek Commons condo. In August 2019 we engaged Jeff once again and got a satisfactory offer in Jan. 2020. Our tenant moved out in mid April and escrow was scheduled to close on April 20. Due to delays in funding the buyers loan and to escrow paperwork bottlenecks because of the coronavirus shutdown, our actual close date was April 27th. Throughout this entire time Jeff was very patient and thorough leading us to the right decisions. His knowledge of the housing market in San Luis Obispo County and how it relates to potential customers for a unit in a co-housing community is unique in the world of realtors. My husband and I were sheltering in place 600+ miles north of Paso Robles due to the coronavirus shutdown. Putting this all together he was able to find us the perfect buyer for our condo unit in Oak Creek Commons and help us negotiate a fair price for our condo. And he kept us actively involved in the evolving negotiations with daily communications. So once we had a signed deal, Jeff took on the enormous job of notifying our tenant, getting a confirmed date for the tenant and her children to be out of the condo, and spearheading the clean-up of the condo (left in considerable mess by the tenant). No matter what issue turned up in the clean-up, Jeff was able to deliver a solution that was satisfactory to us and the buyer, guiding us to a successful close. We would not hesitate to call on Jeff for any real estate venture we might make in San Luis Obispo Co. and the other areas Jeff works in. We wholeheartedly recommend him to others. He will work tirelessly to represent your interests, gently guiding you to a price or solution that is best for the situation. He is very deliberate, practical and wise in guiding his clients to the right solution. And will always represent your best interests. Jeff's Comments: Elena Satmari was my partner agent for this transaction. Her property management expertise help with the tenant situation while taking over two of our other transactions to allow me to devote my full attention to this transaction. She also help me arrange for workers to clean up after the tenant and do repairs for the owner. I couldn't have done it without her.
