Excellent! Katie & Sparky went above and beyond in all aspects of the sale of our home. They are extremely reliable, easy to work with and get the job done. They are the best!

Katie and Sparky make an amazing team. They helped us purchase a home in San Marcos while we lived in Folsom, CA. Katie listened to what we desired in a home and found several near-perfect matches. Sparky went home by home and did video walkthrough for us since we were not local. This helped us in making a decision on the home we purchased. They were patient and cared about us and what was the right fit for our family. I highly recommend them to anyone. If they can find us (I am super picky) a perfect home, they can find you one too. They were always available, even on weekends and holidays and never made me feel like I was a bother.

We cannot express enough gratitude in one review for Katie and Sparky! Katie is the most professional, friendly, and hard working agent! As this was our first time buying, she was so very informative and helpful throughout the whole process! She was extremely transparent and honest with every little detail in the stressful process of purchasing a home!!! Every question answered immediately and in detail; Always held our best interests as priority number one! We got the house of our dreams even with other offers on the table and it was all because of the incredible negotiating skills, professionalism, and attention to detail of these two! They go over and beyond for their clients and make themselves available whenever they are needed. I highly recommend the Pond Team to anyone who is looking for their forever home!

I appreciated Sparky & Katie's honesty, positive attitude and their hard work. But what I appreciated most is that they took care of many of the important details in selling my " fixer upper" house I either didn't have the time or the expertise to handle. They did everything from arranging for a contractor to fix the home, a roofer to do repairs, a handyman to fix the fence, a termite company to tent the house and a furniture company to stage it. And she always endeavored to get me the best price. In short they went way beyond " selling" the house. They managed the whole process of refurbishing it and then selling it. On another note, when negotiations seemed like they might stall, Katie was there with a well thought our compromise which got the negotiations going again. A realtor doesn't get any better than Sparky & Katie Pond!

5 stars are not enough to express how impressed I am with the service provided by Sparky and Katie Pond. For me, they represent the epitome of what a Real Estate Professional should be. They are standouts in their field because of their honesty and integrity, and at every point along the way, they took the extra steps necessary to make sure that our sale process was smooth and actually pleasant. They were always diligent about keeping me informed, and when I had questions, they quickly provided knowledgeable answers. I was amazed and pleased when their negotiation skills resulted in a higher sale price. In conclusion, I'd also like to say that this hard-working team consists of two very nice people who were always a pleasure to interact with. Thank you, Katie and Sparky!

We just closed escrow on a property we owned in San Marcos. Katie Pond, who was our listing agent, was extremely attentive and a pleasure to work with. I've worked with various real estate agents over the years and have yet to find one who was on top of everything like Katie was. I felt as if I was her only client. She kept me appraised of every step of escrow with emails and phone calls. I highly recommend her and her staff.

About Katie

Two standouts in their field, Sparky and Katie Pond have earned a reputation for leading with honesty, integrity, and transparency. Armed with a combined 28 years of real estate experience, the dynamic husband and wife duo have no lack of success stories. "5 stars is not enough to express how impressed I am with their service," raves one former client, while another shares, "nothing less than absolutely amazing." Two top performers in the industry, both Realtors have garnered extremely high levels of client satisfaction.

Operating with a palpable synergy, the twosome share a love of client care and go to great lengths to ensure that the needs of their clients are always made a top priority. Abundantly available and unquestionably responsive, the team's sole focus is to achieve the best outcome in the shortest amount of time possible. Equipped with the capacity to streamline sales, quickly solve issues, and effectively negotiate transactions, the pair has a knack for delivering results. Their list price versus sales price ratios are high, days on the market low, and closing ratio high, due to their dedication to market expertise.

Results aside, the Pond Team is known for being incredibly genuine, easy to work with, and exceedingly professional. Both Sparky and Katie have lived and breathed real estate for the duration of their adult lives, so it's no wonder that team has a passion for utilizing their knowledge and experience to ensure that clients net the very best return on their investment.

Most days you'll find the duo staging homes or taping video walk-throughs - like Sparky famously did for one out-of-town client. Come weekends, you'll find them soaking up the sun in North County San Diego. Sparky surfing or running on the beach, and Katie hitting the yoga studio or perusing farmer's market for homecooked family meals. The pair is passionate about their community and actively involved in both the local Ecke YMCA and their son's school. Truth be told, I think you'll find the twosome is equally as dedicated to family fun as they are helping other families relocate. The couple loves where they live, they love what they do, and it shows in each and every real estate transaction.
