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.
Always gave me great advice
"Hal was Great!! He helped us sell a house in SLO and was the consummate professional. He either answers his calls himself or has his team check in quickly. I never felt like I was waiting around for him. He responds to email and always gave me great advice, including turning down a full price offer so that we could get a full feel for the current market. He made us an extra $100,000 with that recommendation alone. I loved that Hal told me what he thought we should do because it was in my best interest, not his. I cannot more highly recommend Hal. He was a great guy the whole way through and I did the entire transaction over the phone and email and barely had to lift a finger to sell a million dollar property. Awesome!! Thanks Hal and team."

Accessible, responsive, knowledgeable and kind
"Hal Sweasey, and his team were accessible, responsive, knowledgeable and kind through the whole process of selling my house. They made a difficult situation go smoothly. His team Sarah, Sharon, Dakota, Stephanie and Hal walked me through the whole process so l didn't have any extra stress. I am so impressed with this agency and highly recommend them. They got many offers in the first weekend of listing and we closed for over asking. I love how they utilized a team approach. They exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams. I am truly grateful to Hal and his team."

Everyone on the Team kept me informed and made it so easy
"Hal and his Team were outstanding! As an out of area seller, after speaking to Hal on phone, his calmness and sincerity just shined though. I gave him the listing at the end of our conversation. Hal and his Team were a pleasure to deal with. Everyone was more than happy to answer/explain any question I had. Everyone on the Team kept me informed and made it so easy. We had an offer within about 24 hours and multiple offers thereafter. We closed very quickly and Hal and his Team were very professional but also personable thoughout. You can not go wrong by using Hal and his Team!!"

Wonderful customer service
"Hal and his Team is AWESOME!! I was an out of area seller, spoke to Hal on the phone and after only a few minutes, I gave him my listing. His calmness and sincerity came shining though even on the phone. Hal and his Team were all willing to answer, explain any questions I had. Had offers within 24 hours, they kept me informed at all times. The professionalism of everyone on the team was outstanding! You could not ask for a better Realtor and Team for your sell or buy situation. Wonderful Customer Service and wonderful overall treatment. We closed very quickly and all paperwork was done correctly. Great job everyone, appreciate Hal and Team!!"

Responsive through the entire process
"Hal Sweasey and his team did an outstanding job selling our home in Bassi Ranch. We had moved out of State prior to marketing the home and Hal and his team kept us informed and were responsive through the entire process. I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home on the Central Coast."

A masterful job of maximizing property exposure while adhering to 'safe' practices
"Hal and his very capable team were able to turnaround a previously stale listing of our home in Nipomo and re-market it. This took place during the early stages of CV-19 and they did a masterful job of maximizing property exposure while adhering to 'safe' practices. Hal provided insightful negotiating guidance which I took most of the time, and when we did disagree, he thoroughly executed on the path that I had chosen. His support team was excellent and followed every detail, contingency, and deadline as escrow proceeded. Hal and his team members were congenial, very responsive to my emails and calls, and overall were a pleasure to work with! I would not hesitate to use Hal again in the future."
Hal and his team are a class act...
"I recently closed on my rental property in SLO with Hal and his incredible team. I have been in the banking and mortgage business for the past 15 years and consider myself an expert in all aspects of home buying and selling. I can say without question, Hal and his team are a class act. They know their business inside and out and are extremely quick in getting things done. Not only that but they went above and beyond to ensure my property was show ready. I would not look any further as they are the best. You will be in great hands."
Every year Hal would call asking if there was anything he could help me with...
"I first met Hal Sweasey 11 years ago when my Mother died and I inherited her home. Every year Hal would call and leave a message just checking in and asking if there was anything he could help me with. Although the house was rented and I rarely returned his calls, he continued to contact me every year. When the time came to sell the San Luis Obispo home, Hal was my first call. He proved to be the right choice. He was helpful throughout the entire sales process from listing to closing. The house actually sold for almost full asking price before it was ever listed on the MLS. I have nothing but good things to say about Hal and his entire team and recommend them highly with no reservations!"
We Felt Well Informed in the Whole Process...
"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."

A Prompt Full Price Sale That Fulfilled All of Our Terms and Conditions...
"We selected the Hal Sweasey Sales Team to sell our home based on our knowledge of Hal's professional expertise and his solid track record in San Luis Obispo. Hal's team did not disappoint! They delivered for us with a prompt full price sale that fulfilled all of our terms and conditions. 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. The team was there for us through the various stages of interaction with the buyer and title company; and they worked efficiently in processing the transaction. 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!"

Never Has Selling One Property and Buying Another Been So Easy!...
"I've bought and sold seven properties in SLO County where I've lived for the past 50 years...never has selling one property and buying another been so easy! Hal and his team are
amazing -- they answer your calls expeditiously, are very knowledgeable in their area, and can line you up with whatever else you need - mortgage brokers, contractors for repairs, etc.
I highly recommend them as realtors for anyone looking!"

Sold Quickly For More Than The Price We Wanted...

Excellent Service with No Disruption to Our Busy Schedules...
"Hal Sweasey and Team did an outstanding job in facilitating the sale of our condo earlier this year. We were selling our condo "remotely" and Hal and his team provided excellent service with no disruption to our busy schedules. They made the right recommendations to prepare the property for sale, brought in service professionals, and got the job done! They priced the condo right and we received multiple offers rather quickly."

Made Me Feel Very Comfortable from the Very Beginning...
"My experience with Hal Sweasey & his team was truly amazing! Never had any experience selling a home I felt really alone and inadequate! Hal and his team made me feel very comfortable right from the very beginning. I knew I was in good hands. His expertise and knowledge showed in the very beginning. We had some different complications to work through and he guided me though it with ease. I enjoyed working with him very much. He really cares about his clients and that certainly means a lot. He makes you feel that you are the only and most important client he has. That is a gift."

Treated Us As If We Were Family...
"Hal and his team made the selling of my parent's house easy during a very stressful time.

Hal and his team went above and beyond what was expected from a realtor and treated us as if we were family."

Very professional and competent - FIVE STARS."

Walking us through all the steps we needed
"My wife and I purchased a home in San Luis Obispo using Hal and his team. As first time home buyers, Wina and Hal were very helpful throughout the home buying process, walking us through all the steps we needed to complete between the acceptance of our offer and closing. In addition, since we are not from the area, we relied on the team to set us up with local vendors who provided us with both quick and high quality service."

We've made three property purchases through Hal in the last 10 years
"I hammered Hal Sweasey with property inquiries for years before we finally pulled the trigger.He always returned my calls promptly and answered my questions thoroughly, which was why, when we were finally ready to purchase, we knew Hal was our guy. We've made three property purchases through Hal in the last 10 years. Every transaction, Hal and his team have been knowledgeable and efficient.They know the area, and they listen thoroughly to our requests without trying to push us in a different direction. We have full faith and loads of gratitude for the whole team."

Delivered on price, ease of transaction and speed of closing...
"I've bought and sold quite a few houses through Hal Sweasey and his team over the past decade. On both sides of the transaction, regardless of whether I'm buying or selling, Hal and his team of real estate professionals have delivered on price, ease of transaction and speed of closing. Most recently, I had a very unusual property requirement, (nearly impossible) but after some discussion, Hal understood what I was looking for and called me after some investigating around the area and said 'I think I found what you're looking for and it's not on the market yet'. He was 100% right and we snagged a gem for a very fair price without competing with other offers. Thanks Hal and team!"

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 dealt 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."
