Seller Testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.


The response time was ALWAYS immediate. And no matter what, they were there for me... on my side...
"Hal Sweasey and his team made buying our dream home a reality. We recently sold a rental property in Oceano and bought another home in Arroyo Grande. We told Team Sweasey that we wanted a quick sale of our rental property so we could get moving on purchasing our new home. From the very beginning, Hal listened to us, communicated constantly, and made the process so smooth. We sold our rental property in a matter of days. Hal helped us find the perfect buyer. We couldn't be more pleased with how that sale turned out. I really appreciate how he always treated us like we were his #1 client. I knew I could trust him right from the start. When it came down to making an offer on our new home, we knew we were competing with multiple offers. However, Lindsey used her expertise in the real estate field to be sure that our offer was strong. We were able to purchase the home of our dreams without being denied or countered or anything! WOW!! The escrow process can be somewhat unpredictable and confusing at times. And with so much money going into this purchase, it made me slightly nervous. I can't tell you how AWESOME Melody and Lindsey were during that time. They were ALWAYS a text away. The response time was ALWAYS immediate. And no matter what, they were there for me... on my side. They were there to help. They made the process so easy. I am so thankful for them!!! Without a shadow of a doubt, I would hire Hal Sweasey and his AMAZING team to help with our next real estate purchase or sale."

I got a great home, in the right location, for a fair price, due to outstanding professional skills. If you are in the San Luis Obispo market, I highly recommend the Hal Sweasey Sales Team.

Quickly Understood My Unique Concerns and Specific Requirements...
"I especially enjoyed working with Lindsey Harn. She is a true professional and I would recommend her to my friends. I noticed she quickly understood my unique concerns and specific requirements which made finding the right property somewhat challenging. I appreciate, too, that she steered me away from some potential problem areas. I was most impressed how she handled a last minute "bidding war" which resulted when another offer came in that was higher than mine. I was pretty stressed at that point, but Lindsey was calm and confident. In a very short period of time she negotiated on my behalf, and I not only got the property but at a very good price. Thanks to Lindsey, and the whole team, who helped me every step of the way."

Removed So Much of the Frustration of Finding and Purchasing a Home...
"We were very pleased with the Re/Max Del Oro real estate team. They did a wonderful job getting us through the process of purchasing our home in a timely manner. Lindsey was wonderful to work with. She is incredibly kind and patient. She was also very quick to understand the kind of home we were looking for. That alone removed so much of the frustration of finding and purchasing a home. She was quick to respond to all communication from us and almost anything regarding our home purchase. We will definitely do business with this team again should we ever choose to move someday."

Professional with a Drive for Customer Service...
"HAL SWEASEY, THIS NAME SAYS IT ALL! When we decided to purchase a 2nd home in San Luis Obispo, it had been over 20 years since we purchased a property and we did not quite know what we were doing. Within 12 hours of pressing enter on the computer, Hal called our home and immediately we could tell he was a professional with a drive for customer service. A decision was made and Hal was very honest, helpful, and knowledgeable when it came to offers and counter offers. There was not one thing Hal or Lindsey wouldn't do for us! Purchasing a property, especially 5 hours from our home, is a stressful venture but Hal & Lindsey made it seem easy and effortless for us. Our purchase closed on time and without a hitch and this is directly due to Hal and Lindsey working so well as a TEAM. Thank you Hal and Lindsey for your exceptional service, you treated us as if we were a part of your family and that means a lot."

Thank you!"

This Has Been a Wonderful Experience...
"Thank you for all the work you did to get me in to my new home professionally and quickly. The communication was excellent. Every call I made to either one of you, to the lender, to the escrow company, and the insurance agents was returned immediately. This was true before I saw the property, during the transaction, and after closing. There was following-up and following-through on every question I asked and every concern I expressed. This has been a wonderful experience working with true professionals who know their business and do it brilliantly."

Thank You Doesn't Seem Like Enough...
"Over the last few years we've met various real estate agents as we meandered through open houses and looked at potential homes. Most of the agents were nice enough, but honestly you were and have been the most professional and persistent (without being pushy) of those we death with. We're glad you stuck with us. We couldn't have gotten the deal we did without your expert services and experience. Thank you doesn't seen like enough."

We Could Rely on the Team for Future Needs...
"The SLO housing market proved to be a difficult terrain to navigate. We were so grateful that a house "off-the-market" was made available to us. Lindsey knew our needs and wants well enough to venture outside the MLS and find what we needed... We still feel that we could rely on Hal Sweasey's sales team for any future advice we may need."

Knowledgeable and Service Oriented...

Found the Perfect Home...
"My wife and I have moved 32 times in the professional world. We started looking for a larger home in San Luis Obispo two years ago. We drove by a home with a Hal's For Sale sign and thought it was interesting so called the number. We talked with Lindsey Harn and she showed us the house. Bottom line, it was not what we wanted, but she worked with us for two years to find a home. We were gone for large blocks of time, but she would always keep us informed of homes that might meet our needs...never pressuring us in any way. Eventually she hit pay dirt and found the perfect home that we purchased. We appreciate the professionalism and support to achieve our goals by Lindsey and Hal. They are the best"

Made Everything Very Seamless and Transparent...
"Great realtor!!!....Very knowledgeable. Will use again for my next home. Was able to navigate us through the process successfully and made everything very seamless and transparent."
- Robert Crocitto (Trulia review)

Kind, Patient and Really Knowledgeable...
"We had a wonderful experience with this realty team from beginning to end. We were having a very difficult time finding a realtor that understood what we were looking for and wasn't trying to get us to put in an offer in a hurry. Lindsey from Remax was referred to us by some friends and we had absolutely no complaints. She was super kind, patient, and really knowledgeable about her field. One of the best things about this team is the value they place on prompt and informative communication. We still get calls from Lindsey from time to time letting us know about sales in our neighborhood. I couldn't speak more highly of Lindsey and the rest of the team!"
- Malloryduran (Trulia review)

Did a Great Job of Answering All of Our Questions...
"As first time home buyers my husband and I had a lot of questions. Hal Sweasey's team always did a great job answering all of our questions and putting our minds at ease. Lindsey was very professional, friendly, and on time to all of our appointments. My husband and I heard how difficult it is to purchase a house in SLO but Lindsey made it look easy. We love our new home and look forward to working with them in the future."
- Orchidflower 5 (Trulia review)

Can't Wait to Use Them Again...
"Hal Sweasey-Re/MAX was quick and efficient! They got our family what we exactly wanted for the best price in the market. I read a lot of material about real estate and how to find the perfect home, but Lindsey (our realtor from Hal Sweasey) help put in perspective the market in San Luis Obispo area for my wife and I that is not captured in text. They handled every question and concern professionally and in a timely manner. She got us our home on our first bid! It was perfect! I perceived buying a home to be stressful but Hal Sweasey team made the process so smooth for us. I can't wait to use them again for our next real estate purchase."
- Jimochoa09 (Trulia review)

We've Been So Very Impressed With Hal Sweasey's Sales Team...
"We can't say enough about Lindsey Harn and the entire Sweasey Team! Moving from Charlotte, NC to CA was a tremendous move. From the very beginning Lindsey helped us relax and feel confident we would find a place that was right for our family. She was incredibly responsive to our concerns and preferences as we considered several different types of properties. her kindness, skill and positivity throughout the process were a tremendous comfort. Thanks to her persistence and know-how, we were able to buy a home in SLO. I'll never forget the phone call from Lindsey that began with her asking, "Are you sitting down?" I simply could not have moved my family across Country to this new life without her help. We've been so very impressed with Hal Sweasey's Sales Team. Thank you, to everyone who worked so hard to help us find a home!"
- Leah.germelman (Trulia review)

Thinking Ahead To The Next Couple Of Steps
"We just purchased a home in five cities with the help of Lindsey Harn. Before deciding on Lindsey, we interviewed several agents. We also followed up on their references. Lindsey's references could not speak highly enough of what she was able to do for them. We even spoke to some real estate industry insiders in this area. They pointed out some things we should be looking for in an agent, and how the Sweasey team exceeds those expectations. The word of mouth was true. Lindsey was on top of things, thinking ahead to the next couple steps. She was quick to act and always available. When it comes to a process as big as purchasing a home, it can be maddening to need to talk to your agent and find they have gone missing in action. Lindsey was quick to get back to us. No question was perceived as silly or redundant. She was always patient. Hal also touched bases with us by phone several times to make sure everything was running smoothly. In our future real estate transactions we will return to Lindsey without hesitation."

"We are so thankful that we chose the Hal Sweasey sales team! From Day 1 Hal helped us with every aspect of selling our home. We felt well informed in the whole process as there is so much to understand and learn that finding people you can trust have you best interest at the forefront is so important. You are a team! We experienced that as we progressed through document signing, questions on our responsibilities and the speed that the sale went through. We highly recommend you."

Hal's team prepared us well by conducting the market research and briefing us on the market conditions. They connected us to community resources to provide services that we requested.

And to surpass that, they found us a new home in our desired neighborhood just as quickly, and duplicated their excellent service once more! Both transactions were professionally handled with excellent outcomes for us. This team is the real deal!"

Got Everything I Needed, When I Needed It...
"Because of the high volume of sales that Hal does I went into the listing of my property wondering if I would get the attention I felt I needed. As it turns out I got everything I needed, when I needed it, from Hal and his highly capable team. From the listing process with Vicki, the escrow guidance from Melody and Hal's experience, judgement, helpful negotiation skills and oversight throughout the process , the outcome exceeded my expectations for professionalism, competence and hard work. I wish I had more property to sell in SLO in order to get the chance to work with Hal and his team again!"

I highly recommend them as realtors for anyone looking!"

A Realtor Who is Competent, Trustworthy and Who has Integrity...
"Hal and Lindsey were fabulous to work with. I have used their professional service on four different purchases/sales. I never felt pressured and I always felt that they had my best interest in mind. Hal and Lindsey have all the tools and technology available so you can specialize your search which allows you to be much more efficient at house hunting and you will never feel you missed an opportunity. Two of my home purchases were "off the market" purchases because Hal and Lindsey are so well connected you get the info first. If you're looking for a realtor who is competent, trustworthy, and who has integrity, I would highly recommend the Hal Sweasey team."
- Neal Berryman (Trulia review)
