To whom it may concern, I just relocated to Ventura so I was not familiar with the area; however, I wanted to purchase a home close to work. Blake Mashburn was my agent throughout the process. His expertise was the main reason why I was able to close my loan and purchase my home, without his help it would not have been possible. Blake negotiated with the seller always retaining our best interest in mind. He was able to negotiate with the seller to provide us with closing cost credit and credit for repairs! Most agents don’t go to that extent to fight and negotiate on your behalf. Blake always kept our interests in mind, and he really cared for our family as people not just as clients. His years of experience proved to be an asset throughout the process, as my loan became very complicated and was in jeopardy of being declined. Blake is an expert in real estate and is very knowledgeable in lending as well. I would recommend his services to all my friends and family without a doubt. Blake has become a friend to us and will be our realtor for life!”   ~Omar Madrigal

 

“Blake Mashburn has stood by me during three property transactions in the past two years. These were difficult times for me because I was buying my first house solo, I had just lost my husband and I was selling our home and downsizing to a house half the size; then my mother passed away and as her Trustee, I needed to sell the family home. Two of the transactions were Trust sales, one of which was very challenging! Blake was always there to answer questions and listen as I thought my way through myriad decisions. He is a fine individual whom I trust and consider to be a real friend. I believe Blake is well respected by his colleagues for his knowledge, people skills, and experience. These qualities made my transactions with him very pleasant learning experiences. Blake always kept me informed so I knew what to expect and when as we moved through the process.”   ~Barbara Hearon

 

“Blake and his team went to all ends to help my sale be a success. I would highly recommend him! The house I sold was a very old house and had multiple issues, Blake and his team were diligent and had very good follow-through to help make the sale a success for me and the buyer!”   ~Liz Hollone

 

“My recent purchase was my 3rd house transaction handled by Blake, and I will always go back to him for any real estate needs. My current house just closed escrow and we couldn't be happier about the house and the whole purchase process. This was a difficult escrow to bring to close, with a few times where I thought it wasn't going to happen since the seller seemed unwilling to meet our offer or repair requests. Blake advised us to stick to our guns, clearly showing that he had our best interests in mind, even when those interests could have tanked the sale. For instance, instead of recommending that we accept the seller's counter-offer (which was in Blake's interest since it would have eased the sale and allowed him to get his commission), he suggested that we stick to our price range and walk away if the seller didn't come down. We really wanted this house and I was nervous about losing it, but I trusted Blake's professional advice. After some nervous waiting, the seller did accept our offer that was lower than the seller's "basement" offer. Blake recommended that we request repairs for many more things than I would have without his guidance, and the seller agreed to *all* of our repairs, and even repaired some things that we didn't ask for. This recent purchase was for a Manufactured Home (MH), which is a more difficult house to sell than a traditional "stick built" house. Not your "trailer park" MH but more of a regular home on property that we were also buying, but nonetheless it fell under the "less desirable" category for lenders. I was having trouble finding a good rate for a mortgage since many lenders won't even touch a MH. When I expressed my concern, Blake just said "we'll take care of it", and he and his team (Lori Stern, a most capable assistant) did indeed do just that. He connected us with a lender who offered a good rate for a 30-year loan which was not too much higher than the rate on a traditional home.”   ~Rob

 

“I worked with Blake the first time in 2000 and was very impressed. In 2015 when we were thinking of selling our house I knew Blake was the realtor I would be calling on again. His knowledge, expertise, professionalism, dedication and integrity put him in a league all his own. His whole team (Lori and Jane) are top notch. He helped us sell our property within days of it hitting the market and we found a replacement very shortly after. You are never just another client with Blake. He makes you feel like you are the only one he is working with. If you are looking for a realtor who will go the extra mile for you, listen to you and make the experience and pleasant and seamless as possible, look no further then Blake and his team!”   ~moons74

 

“Highly recommend Blake Mashburn as a realtor to work with. He is professional, helpful, and keeps you up-to-date throughout the whole sale and escrow process. He has a good sense of humor which can come in handy when problems arise. His sense of humor can alleviate your anxiety as it projects a certainty that problems will be solved. With Blake and Lori on the job, you needn't worry. They'll guide you through a very smooth transaction. I'm glad I dealt with this team of experts.”   ~Lidia Harrison

 

“Home buying can become such a daunting task, and more so for first time home buyers. Yet from the moment we met with Blake, we were at ease. Blake listened to our home buying needs and made the homesearch process an enjoyable one. Within a few days, we found our dream home. From the first home viewing and all through escrow, Blake and his team were readily available to answer our questions. Blake and his team keep their clients best interest in the forefront. We highly recommend Blake Mashburn and his outgoing, courteous, and professional team for your home buying or selling needs.”   ~Cynthia D.

 

“I have used Blake twice to purchase a home. Blake is courteous, patient, knowledgeable and looked after my interest. Blake will get things done for you and make the sale and purchase of your home go as smoothly as possible. Blakes assistant, Lori, is awesome. Thanks Blake.......again.”   ~Bobby Vizcarra

 

“Blake recently sold my home in Ventura for me. He provided good info to help me prep my home. Blake and his assistant Lori kept me constantly informed during the process. The home sold quickly and for the asking price, which is the highest price to date for a home in my tract.”   ~Bill McClure

 

“Blake was great helping me find an investment property in Ventura. He is highly knowledgeable about the Ventura market, where the best neighborhoods are, and which properties will appreciate best. Without him I wouldn't have ended up with such a great property and he negotiated significant discounts and concessions which was icing on the cake. His advice to submit offers immediately on properties was the difference between me getting the best available property. He also has a solid network of professionals, in particular the inspector he recommended was outstanding. He offered excellent advice on how to maximize the value of the property after buying as well. I strongly recommend him for any real estate transaction, he will earn his money!”   ~Brandon Jahner
