Olga handled our purchase of our condo in Pebble Beach. We enjoyed working with her. She was very knowledgeable and professional and kept the entire process moving forward at a smooth pace. Thanks for making our our dreams come true.

My husband and I were introduced to Olga by one of our clients, after working with another realtor who didn't understand what we are looking for. Olga was extremely professional, very friendly, always on our side. She understood exactly what we were looking for and she went out of her way to help us get the best deal. Her communication was prompt and answered all of our questions either through the seller’s agent or anyway she could possibly get the answer. Olga is an excellent negotiator. We not only purchased the house we wanted but also we closed in two weeks. We would highly recommend Olga to buy or sell real estate.

The search is over! Olga Menendez is the real estate professional you are looking for. You can do no better. Her expertise, professionalism, and dedication to ensuring you achieve your real estate goals are second-to-none. What is more amazing, however, is that she is an even better person who genuinely cares about her clients beyond business. It was very clear from our first interaction that Olga loves what she does for a living. We were looking to buy at the extreme end of our price range - a nerve wracking and stressful experience to say the least - and Olga gained our complete trust and confidence in a very short period of time. Her savvy negotiation skills got us into escrow after our initial offer. She was meticulous in every aspect of our home buying experience and went to the greatest lengths to ensure we were completely informed, comfortable, and in control. Her communication skills and work ethic are unrivaled as are those of her team of associates. Olga Menendez is 10 out of 10. We would not recommend anyone else to our family or friends. Bring her onboard and you will not be disappointed.

"My wife and I were both very glad that we chose Olga as our realtor. We found her to be very attentive to the main task - selling our property. She was always prompt in responding to any questions, problems or worries that we had, and most sympathetic, helpful and understanding when these did arise. Not only is Olga very personable, but she was very adept in guiding us step by step through the sale process. And I believe that Olga now holds the record for the fastest sale in Carmel-by-the-Sea during 2016!"
Keith Paterson - Former Carmel-by-the-Sea Planning Commisioner
Taking the lead in this transaction Olga was very conscientious and thorough in her marketing of my property and completed all inspections and documentaion in a timely manner. My unit had numerous open houses and I was kept informed of all viewings and reactions of potential buyers. She was professional and personally engaging throughout our transaction. Ultimately I reviewed two full price offers on the same day and the escrow was completed without delay. I heartily recommend Olga Menendez for any real estate endeavors.
I was recently introduced to Olga Menendez, by a mutual client who was purchasing a new home in Carmel and had selected Olga to represent her. Olga was amazing –such a pleasure to work with. She is organized, detail oriented, and keeps everyone on task and to the required timelines. She is an excellent negotiator and is always looking out for the best interests of her client, and that was very evident throughout the entire process. Her communication was prompt, thorough and timely. As a lender, I deal with hundreds of different Realtors every year and I can say that Olga was one of the best I have worked with in quite some time.
I currently reside in Newport Beach, but was born and raised in Carmel and hope to own a home in Carmel again one day. When I do, I will definitely have Olga represent me. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate on the Monterey Peninsula use Olga Menendez – you and your family will be glad you did.

Olga provided my husband and me with an unparalleled level of genuine old-fashioned professional service while we were looking for a home, going through escrow, and hiring contractors to inspect the home we finally decided on.
She is a very positive thinker, fully aware of available properties that matched our interest, plus willing to suggest neighborhoods that we might not have considered. She sincerely listened to our concerns and provided appropriate feedback.
She literally mothered us the entire way; that is, we could call, text, or email her at any hour and she would immediately respond with pertinent information.
We can not imagine any realtor more highly qualified and dedicated than Olga.

I want to Thank you for a very worry free experience! I found that your professionalism, compassion and guidance reassured me throughout every challenge and I never had to wait for the process to happen. You brought me a great buyer in 4 days! And when that offer fell through, again ... Another buyer in 4 days! You must be the best Agent ever for you made it all easy! Thank you Olga Menendez and I would be thrilled to refer you anytime...
My apologies for the delay in sending a true expression of my gratitude!! I'm not even sure where to begin! The process of buying and selling a home can be so overwhelming and you walked us through every step of the way, believing in us, clearly seeing our vision for a new home, and managing all of business details in between with a level of professionalism that could not possibly be matched. Your work ethic is commendable. You instill a level of trust that put us at ease, giving us absolute confidence that we were always in the best possible hands! You made us feel as if we were your only clients with your efficiency and availability, and I know you give that same level of attention to everyone! I'm so very grateful for the relationship we've developed over the years and I will look forward to working with you in the future!

"Following our recent purchase of our home/condo in Pebble Beach, we wish to extend our strong referral of Olga's professional services as a top agent, to anyone who is looking for a property on the Monterey Peninsula area. Because of the difficulties that could have existed during a long distance purchase transaction from New England to Pebble Beach, Olga went far and beyond with her very helpful and willing assistance to be sure the path to our property ownership was as smooth as possible, someone who seemed to go beyond the customary services of an established realtor, she is someone who truly cares for her clients."

We were very fortunate to have Olga Menendez as our realtor when we were purchasing a house in Carmel. I honestly believe if we had not had her as our realtor we would've given up because there were so many obstacles. Since we live in Tennessee there were many challenges with coordinating inspections, mortgage company, seller etc. Olga went way beyond her duties to accommodate us in facilitating getting all the many facets of this transaction to come together. And with such patience and grace! She is truly the most dedicated and professional realtor I have ever dealt with. We will definately call on her for future real estate transactions. Thank you Olga!

"During the year and a half the two of you handled the listing and sale of our property you always demonstrated patience and professionalism. One of the reasons we chose to have you represent us was the teamwork you provide; one or both of you were always available to do whatever was required or helpful. In the beginning each of you assisted in making the house ready for the photo and video tour. The print advertising which your company displayed in the magazines issued for the Concours in August was beautifully done.
Later when a buyer had been secured Olga came to the property countless times to meet a repairman or inspector. Closing the sale involved satisfying a difficult lender which taxed both the buyer and seller, but Olga approached the problems in a professional manner through the close of escrow. She kept us informed on almost a daily basis regarding the buyer's loan approval status. Both of you were so pleasant to work with and you showed a very friendly spirit towards our family. I highly recommend your services to other buyers or sellers. Thank you."
I also want to thank you both for your highly professional and capable handling of the sale of my father's (George Brewer) house in Carmel. I know that it was challenging in many ways, and I very much appreciate all you did to make it happen, from extraordinary patience and good counsel to housekeeping tasks that were well beyond the normal duties expected.
I wish you very well in your next endeavors and will always be very appreciative that you were our chosen realtors for this task.

"When we hired Olga Menendez to represent us in purchasing a home in Pebble Beach, we gave her specific parameters for what we were looking for. Quite simply, she was fantastic to work with. She only showed us properties that fit those parameters. She was diligent and consistent in presenting us with available options. Once we made an offer on what is now our new home, Olga helped us coordinate inspections; recommended high quality vendors in the area; followed up with all of the details required in the closing process. The closing documentation was also provided to us in an easy-to-use and store digital format that worked perfectly. We never felt alone in the process thanks to Olga's diligent oversight.
In short, Olga and her colleagues were highly professional, alert, and consistently helpful at all times during our purchase transaction. Both of us would unequivocally recommend Olga to anyone needing a top-flight real estate expert in the Monterey Peninsula area."
Chris and Mandy Rasmussen
From the moment we met Olga (as the seller’s agent), we knew she was special. In fact, we were so impressed with her knowledge and professionalism, we asked her to represent us (the buyer) as well. It takes a truly special agent to be able to represent both a buyer and seller in a transaction. Olga’s integrity and honesty make her the best in the business. Simply put, we could not be more pleased with Olga’s representation during our home-buying process.
Amy and Ted Taylor
It has been “wonderful working with professionals” like yours that are not only consistent in providing information and feedback of the sale process but has also having the knowledge to complete and finish the tasks that had to be done. We THANK YOU for all your efforts and would not hesitate to recommend your team for future business and reference.

Gerard and I were fortunate to work with Olga and Liz on the purchase of our last home. We have never encountered a smoother real estate transaction. From the very start, Olga listened to our needs. When we found "the one" she was immediately on it and we had an offer ready to present in less than two hours. Here professional experience was evident as she guided us through the negotiation process. Once the offer was accepted, she helped us navigate a very short escrow from start to finish and even came with us when we signed the loan documents. Liz worked diligently behind the scenes, keeping track of all the many appointments and mountains of required paperwork. They are ethical and trustworthy and made our home buying experience a complete pleasure.
"My wife Jeanette and I were looking for a realtor to sell our house in Monterey. We decided the best way to accomplish this was to go to open houses in the area. Olga had that "Wow" factor. She came over that night and we listed our house with her. We felt an immediate friendship. We couldn't be happier with the result. Quick sale. Full price. All of our transactions have been very smooth and beyond satisfaction. Olga really, really knows what's going on in the market. Most of all she listens to your needs. I would recommend Olga to anyone looking for an exceptional realtor."
Greatly Satisfied Clients,

"Thank you so much for the wonderful representation. I was a licensed real estate broker from 1973 until early in this century. I sold real estate and owned a mortgage brokerage firm in the East Bay Area. Debby and I have bought and sold numerous pieces of real estate over the years.I must say you are the best real estate agent I have ever encountered.Unlike so many of those that I have dealt with, you put our needs ahead of collecting your commission. I think anybody shopping for a home or needing help in selling a home could not find better representation. I would be happy for you to have anyone thinking of using your services call and talk with me."
"After determining to buy a house in Carmel, our next decision was that we wanted to retain a real estate agent who would exclusively represent us in the search and negotiations. Olga is thorough, knowledgeable, and has a great deal of experience. She was responsive to our questions, always with well-researched answers. She has a professional appearance and demeanor, a great personality, and is a pleasure to work with. Her efforts on our behalf were extraordinary, as was their result (we purchased at an excellent price a lovely, newly-built home in Carmel-By-The Sea...) . We have no hesitancy in recommending Olga to anyone who is considering the purchase or sale of a home in the Monterey Peninsula. You will not be disappointed."

"Working with Olga made buying and selling a home in Carmel simple. She's the type of Carmel "insider" you want working for you... she knows the area, the market and what her customers need. And she delivers."

"Sherry and I thank you for your sincere help and dedication in locating the perfect home for the two of us in Carmel. We have enjoyed this home for close to six years. Your diligent negotiation on our behalf afforded us the ability to purchase the home at a fair price. We truly appreciated your attention to detail and detailed communication through the closing process. Again, thank you so much."
