"I first met Shea about five years ago when he showed me a property. At that time I wasn't quite ready to purchase and over the past five years Shea has kept my client portal current with properties that I might be interested in. Recently I contacted him about a property that I was interested in, which I am happy to say I am now the proud owner. Thank you Shea for sticking with me all these years and the wonderful service you provided me."

"Bottom line up front Shea is OUTSTANDING and got the job done. We had listed our home with another agent who just wasn't getting solid walkthroughs, and zero offers over a 4 month period. Within 1 week of Shea taking over, we had multiple offers and closed escrow in under 30 days. Shea was extremely communicative which was huge for us. We never felt like we had to go looking for information, as he was always pushing it to us. He also uses a very handy technique of keeping a running log sheet going of actions, upcoming steps, so you can see history and know what to expect. Lastly months after the sale we needed get ahold of some documents for tax purposes and even though his job was "done" his office had what we needed to us in minutes. Total professionalism the entire way. Look no further and just hire this man."

"As first-time home buyers from out-of-state, the purchasing process can be very daunting. With Shea's guidance and expertise, we were able to navigate the process without a problem. He was attentive, patient and very accommodating. Shea spent a day with us going over different neighborhoods and homes in order to give us a complete picture of the current market. He worked diligently with the seller's realtor and the home inspector to close out the sale, allowing us to move in on-time. Additionally, he was very familiar with the VA Loan procedure and ensured the proper inspections were completed. Shea was with us every step of the way; he made sure we understood each detail and supported every decision we made. We are very happy with our new home; we cannot thank Shea & Patterson Realty enough!"
"Shea was at all times professional and prompt in keeping us up to date with the sale of our mother’s home. We could not imagine having anyone else! Shea was always happy to assist and guide us when we were not sure about some of the repairs that needed to be attended to. He made our experience with century 21 Hometown Reality a pleasant one, and we will happily pass along his name to anyone who might be interested in selling their home. Shea Hutchinson is very knowledgeable real estate professional! You are lucky to have him work for Centery21."

"Shea was by far the best agent we had. Head and shoulders above the rest. We had been through 4 agents before and Shea was the only one that actually came through for us. He is on top of everything and I am always amazed at how quickly he is able to get back to us with information. With other agents it would be days before we would hear anything back. His service is so wonderful, he makes you feel like you are his only client, even though he is extremely busy most of the time. Whenever it was convenient for us to see a house he would say that time would work for him. He is extremely flexible. His email, txting, and phone correspondence was always so nice and courteous. He gives you great information sheet comps in the area and all the history of the house when you go to see it. No other agent does that. It helps you make an informed decision on probably the biggest purchase of your life. I think the most important quality Shea has is patience. I was an extremely picky customer as far as which house I wanted and where I wanted to live. For my price range, I kept getting outbid on houses and he always stayed positive when I wanted to fall apart. All of his services are wonderful and I think he should teach a course for all agents to go through before they can enter the real estate world. Shea will always have our business and I will recommend him to everyone buying or selling. There is no agent better then Shea, hands down!!!"

"Shea and his team are wonderful to work with! They have helped us with a buy and a sell -and both were done efficiently and fast! They are great at communicating and keeping us in the loop of where the process was at. I will definitely use them again in the future and would highly recommend them. If you want your buying/selling process to be handled professionally and with extreme care - She and his team are for you!"

"Mr. Hutchinson represented our property transaction with the most care and expertise as if it was his own. There were thirteen offers in 3 days on the property we purchased. He helped us make a winning offer on the property by providing us reliable comps, advising us on the amount down and most importent of all the price. Our offer was not the highest, but it was the one that the seller wanted. After the offer was accepted by the seller he helped us close the property by coordinating all the paper work with the various organization to completion. It was even more difficult for him because at the time we were residing out of state which pretty much doubled the work load for him. He was either available at the time we contacted him with a questions or returned our calls promply with an answer. Mr. Hutchinson in our opinion is a true professional in his field."

"Shea is set apart from the rest.
Although neither one of us had a crystal ball to carry around that would have predicted the pricing fluctuations within the market, to this day I feel that I received a more than fair deal, from an honest and dependable partner.
He wasnt just my real estate agent, he was my partner from start to finish. He saw me through the process, prepared me, guided me and most importantly listened to me. Not once did I feel he was trying to rush me through, not once did I feel he had his interests above my own. He was great with the kiddos and the question asking, assertive, at times demanding home buyer - I guess that would be me?
If you want someone that you can hold to a higher standard, he would be the guy. His staff is amazing as well. Attentive, personable and responsive.
Almost two years later, I look at my kids enjoying my beautiful home, I pull up from a long day at work, or I wake up in the morning still in awe that I was able to accomplish one of my main goals in life.
When I stop to give thanks for making a dream come true, Shea is on my list."

"We took a leap of faith and decided to try and buy a home in this crazy competitive "buyers market". Thank goodness we had Shea guiding us along the way! He was honest, knowledgeable, and always available. All the while, "keeping it real" for us in our expectations and the realities of today's market.
The home we purchased was one of those perfect timing situations, which couldn't have been achieved if Shea and his assistant Deanna weren't as efficient or reliable as they were. Shea came highly recommended to us and it was clear why his reputation proceeded him. He is well respected by realtors from numerous agencies as well as those he conducts business with on a regular basis.
Needless to say we are more than pleased with the service and treatment we received by Shea and his team! We will most definitely be referring anyone who is in the market to buy or sell to Shea!"

"Moving to an unfamiliar area from another state could pose certain challenges not ordinarily encountered when shopping for a home. However, Shea Hutchinson made the entire process simple and stress free. Shea was always readily available and attentive to our needs. His knowledge of the Central Coast housing market is unsurpassed. Shea came highly recommended and now I know why. We got the perfect house for our family thanks to Shea."

"Shea Hutchinson is the most diligent and capable Realtor that my wife and I ever worked with. Shea showed us dozens of listings and provided stellar advice throughout our real estate transaction without pressuring us to make our choice of home. It is abundantly clear to us why Shea was the Santa Maria Valley 2008 Realtor of the Year. I give Shea's business cards out to anyone that is interested in buying real estate on the Central Coast because I know that he will provide exemplary service unlike any other real estate agent we have EVER met. Shea is the best there is!"
- Walt A
"Shea went well beyond the call of duty with us for a year and a half to find us the perfect home. We feel that he is like family to us. He knows all of our likes and dislikes. We can't say enough good things about him to explain the wonderful job he did for us. We plan to purchase a rental home in the very near future and we wouldn't consider anyone else to help us. We know that we can always count on him and trust him to find us another perfect house. We can see why he was voted Realtor of the Year last year...He IS!!"

- Samuel A
"As a first time home buyer, I had no clue what the process would be like. Shea was knowledgeable, professional, patient and extremely helpful every step of the way. He answered all my questions or would find the appropriate person to answer them. Shea was in communication with me at all times and kept me well informed. I am very satisfied with my purchase and very fortunate to have found him as my realtor!"
