"My passion is helping people transition with the least amount of stress. I believe that trust and accessibility are key to successful relationships between clients and agents. I provide the very best opportunities to my clients, so your move can be easy and rewarding".
"Edie Halenbeck is a consummate professional. Our home had been in my wife's family for four generations and parting with it was very difficult for her. We had interviewed other realtors before a relative recommended Edie to us. She made everything so much easier. Every situation that arose was handled seamlessly. We had never sold a home before and we had many questions, all of which were answered clearly and concisely. We highly recommend Edie Halenbeck." - Kevin & Debra H.
"Edie was awesome to work with and I would recommend her without hesitation. Edie helped our family find a great house. She started out by working through our expectations, budgets, neighborhoods and helping us connect with financing options. From there we did a couple of weekends together to calibrate by looking at open houses and sharing our thoughts. From there Edie would send us a weekend plan on Friday nights to narrow down the open houses to just the ones she thought would work for us, which greatly helped our weekend planning. When we saw a house we were going to bid on, she was very quick to pull disclosures etc and advice us on on price, contingencies etc. Within 3 months we found our house and have been happily living in it for over 2 years now. Edie was efficient, extremely responsive even nights and weekends, understood our preferences clearly and did a great job of helping us through the process. Overall an A+ experience." - Stephen D.
"Our house in the Santa Cruz Mountains - a beautiful but difficult location from a sales point of view - was on the market for almost a year with another realtor with little traffic, fewer showings and no offers. It was very frustrating. Edie was recommended to us by a friend. We met her, were impressed and signed the sale over to her. This was in December and, in short order, we had 2 offers in front of us to consider in the New Year! We accepted one, but the buyers had many questions and quibbles about the property. This started a process of many offers and counter offers that finally resulted in a sale that all parties were comfortable with. Edie was on top of this process, advocating for us and handling the many details of a complicated sale. This was a million-dollar property in a semi-rural location. Edie found us buyers and, through her expertise and hard work, made the deal happen. My wife and I give her our highest recommendation." - Jay & Dixie M.
"I've worked with several realtors over the years and was most impressed with Edie. She didn't allow the process to stagnate, kept it moving along and aggressively worked out details that needed to be resolved or negotiated. I would highly recommend her for your sale or purchase." - Phillip T.
"Edie was my agent for both selling my house and then later for buying a new home. Edie helped prep the house for sale so that we got the maximum price - we had multiple bids in the middle of a recession. When I bought again, she helped get the offer in while I was driving to So. Cal. on vacation. She did a great job for me and I'm sure she could for you, too." - Laura C.
"We had a property that had some challenges but Edie handled it perfectly and far exceeded our expectations. She sold our property way above the price we were hoping to get in a difficult market. I was very impressed with the virtual tour video and all marketing she did for our property. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to sell their property." - Lidia M.
"I had the pleasure of working with Edie for the last 4 years, where she has helped me both sell and purchase multi-million dollar properties for amazing prices. I cycled through several realtors, many with decades of experience, but kept coming back to Edie because she is so good at what she does. She's intelligent, quick witted, and so awesome to work with! Did I mention very honest and dependable as well. Being an active businessman and entrepreneur, leaves me with very little time to do thorough screening of potential options out there, but Edie is always there to make the process run smoothly. We have had many phone calls at the oddest of times, but that doesn't stop her from answering or responding quickly. In today's competitive market, one really does need the professional that has it all: Intelligent, Integrity, Dependable, Ambitious & Attractive . . I couldn't have been happier." - Dr. Sacha N.
"Edie is highly experienced, informative, and knowledgeable about the legalities, formalities, and negotiating process. Professional and poised- you will always feel confident while being represented by her. My family and I have gotten multiple properties with Edie, and we're grateful and loyal." - Viktoria F.
"Edie helped us purchase a house. She was smart enough to use strategy to help us get the house at an affordable price. She was a very responsible and caring buyer agent. Our loan was not smooth, and Edie patiently talked to the seller again and again for contingency extension. She could even work at 11:30pm for our urgent request. What impressed us the most was that she would stand behind us and speak for us in any occasion. We appreciate Edie's help and guidance for the whole purchase process and we could not get the house without her. I highly recommend her to everyone, who is looking for a diligent, smart and responsible agent." - Xiaoyue & Xin
"I recently had the pleasure to work with Edie Halenbeck. Edie was my realtor, when I purchased a property that was many acres of undeveloped land. She was very knowledgeable and always willing to share the next step in the process with me. She was available for me and worked with my lender to facilitate the process. Edie is a realtor that I would highly recommend for any type of purchase or sale. She always went beyond what was expected!!" - Ginger M.
