"It would be impossible to exaggerate how wonderful it has been working with Sacha. Moving from Santa Fe to San Luis Obispo was a big transition for us, culturally and property aspects. Sacha quickly learned what we were looking for and translated that into ‘California’ possibilities. Within 4 weeks, we found a new home, closed on buying it (with hand-holding guidance from California to New Mexico on ALL the form compliance), and we moved in!!! All the while Sacha was available (even on her trip to England!) and one step ahead of the game insofar as meeting inspection dates, signing papers, etc. Sacha is a true professional and we highly recommend her."

"My husband and I just moved to San Luis Obispo from Dubai after living there for 4 years. Our only daughter has lived here for the last 9 years, and we visited her every year, and loved it. So, we knew we wanted to make this city our new home. We wanted to find a really knowledgable, detailed, kind, patient, and friendly realtor, who was very familiar with the area. I happened to see Amy Danne's reviews, all with 5 stars and highly commendable praises of her hard work. And we are so very happy to have found her! We can't say enough great things about her. She has made our house hunting as well as the entire process so very smooth, with no stress. She really listens to your needs and really takes the time to help you. She has also given us very good recommendations of other professionals we've requested or needed; like a house inspector, handyman, plumber, attorney, etc. You can't go wrong with having Amy as your realtor. We wish all realtors were this dedicated, and enjoyed this very specialized job and appreciate how important a home purchase is. She certainly does!! A big heartfelt thank you to you, Amy!"

"We sold our home in LA, and bought a new home in SLO county, all during the COVID-19 pandemic. Kellye brought an indescribable amount of clarity, calm, and knowledge during this unprecedented time. She was our buyers' agent, and we purchased our home from a "for sale by owner" seller. We trusted her so much that we, without reservation, agreed to have her represent both parties, and she did so with elegance, grace, and transparency. We loved that she has a law degree, and it certainly was a huge plus, especially considering the uncertainty in the world right now. She was generous with her time, and went to the extent of working closely with our agent in Los Angeles, which made the process even more seamless. She provided a thoughtful, compassionate ear during the most stressful parts of the process, and bestowed amazing guidance. She also made sure that the process of viewing the new house, the process of inspections, and all meetings were done safely, and to the highest of best-practice public health standards. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kellye to anyone and everyone."

"Sacha was excellent to work with: punctual, organized, warm and detail oriented. I could count on her to follow-through and explain everything as we went along, which was imperative for me as a first time buyer."

I was a first time home buyer in San Luis Obispo, CA and was referred to Amy Daane
through a mutual friend. She had a great knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what I was looking for. "She was very responsive to my needs and was always available when I needed her to be. She is tenacious during negotiations and very meticulous! Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work Amy."

"Amy is absolutely amazing! She went out of her way to make sure our every question, need, or concern was addressed and taken care of. We had an extremely tight time frame to get the deal done. In two weeks we had to sell our home in Southern California in order to get our home in SLO. Our home down south fell out of escrow twice! Needless to say, it was an emotional roller coaster. Amy was with us every step of the way! She fought for us, empathized with us, encouraged us, and never gave up (even though we felt like it). She went above and beyond her role as realtor. Eventually, she got involved with the deal down in Southern California, where she had connections, and was able to speed things up down there. She also had connections with the selling realtor of the house we were buying, and was able to buy us more time. If it was not for Amy, I don't believe the deal would have happened! She was our biggest advocate through the whole process and her attention to detail was impressive. If you are in need of realtor, look no further than Amy Daane!"

When my husband and I decided to become first-time homeowners in the beautiful Central Coast, we felt a mixture of anxiety, excitement, and intimidation. Anxiety due to our general lack of understanding of how the real state market works in California; excitement because of this important milestone in our young lives; and intimidation because we quickly realized how competitive and nerve-racking was the real state market in north San Luis Obispo county, where we focused our house-hunt. It is not fair to say we stumbled upon Sacha. We already knew of who she was a person and as a real-state agent, as my husband first met her through Sacha’s husband in late 2015. Long in the short, Sacha guided us through the whole process of buying a home, literally holding our hands in each step, from finding a top-notch lender to ensure the last signature needed to close on the property we settled for. We felt our interactions with her were always honest, to the point, and up-front: these are professional features that you certainly want in your real state agent !. She listened and then answered the myriad of questions we asked during our long drives to and back from North county. She quickly figured it out our personal likes and dislikes, and from that point onwards, the re-directed and fine-tuned her search for properties that more closely matched our “perfect” home. It is difficult to estimate how much time she devoted to our situation and how personalized the whole process felt to us. Bottom line is, she was clearly genuinely invested in finding the perfect fit for us, which eventually occurred. Sacha is extremely professional, personable, savvy and efficient, and she has a throughout understanding of the market in San Luis Obispo county. To us, it was invaluable to have her as our real state agent and we would recommend her in a heartbeat.

"It’s good that most real estate agents are outgoing, friendly and optimistic. What’s even better is when they are also whip-smart, collaborative, strategic, and not afraid to “speak truth” when necessary. Amy Daane proved to be the whole package.
We interviewed real estate agents prior to choosing Amy to represent our beloved home, which we owned for 32+ years. While we did not know her at all prior to our first meeting, we connected with Amy right away. We were prepared with a long list of questions which she fielded expertly. Her experience and knowledge were very apparent.
Amy has a relationship with a wide network of trades people and others important to a home sale (e.g., stagers) and once we vacated our house, she was a heat seeking missile in lining up work to prepare for the sales process. No time was wasted.
While the actual sale moved fast, too, we did hit one big bump along the way. Amy was excellent in navigating through the challenge, giving us her best advice and keeping all parties constructively in the game, including the buyer’s agent and the buyers. She toggled expertly among the various players, including some technical professionals who needed to be engaged to help us resolve the issue successfully.
While Amy has excellent support staff to handle certain facets of a sale (e.g., transfer of a solar lease), throughout the entire process our relationship was directly with Amy: in person and through email and text messaging. She is very communicative and responsive.
We could not be happier with our choice to have Amy represent us in selling the home that we loved for so many years and that meant so much to our family. She gave us the expertise and support that we needed every step of the way.
We highly recommend Amy Daane!"

"We could not have asked for a better partner in our home buying process. We were frankly hesitant to work with someone and had met with several other realtors, but as soon as we met Sacha we knew she was the right one. She was really good at listening to us, very quickly understanding what we actually wanted and never once making us feel pushed in a direction we didn't want. We never felt that the pressure for her to make a sale was more important than us finding something that really met our needs. She guided us expertly through the home buying process, made sure we were comfortable at every stage, and help us get the house of our dreams (even though there were several offers higher than ours). As a negotiator, Sacha is incredible. She is firm but easy to work with, getting us what we needed without making anyone feel burned in the process. We've already referred two family members to Sacha and can't wait to send more her way."
