Jonathan and his team define the very meaning of full service realtors. We bought our $1.4M house in Prunedale to move back from Virginia. We had only photos online. Portola Group made videos of several properties to give us a fuller picture of the homes. They even added music. They helped us with our insurance agent, the septic and termite inspections, and even facilitated the bank loan by responding immediately with their requests. Through it all Jonathan kept us in the loop, responded quickly and clearly to every request, and went the extra unexpected distance for us. I could not have been happier with Jonathan and his amazing team!
My husband and I worked with Nick and Jonathan to buy our dream home and to sell our current home. Nick helped us identify, pursue and ultimately purchase our off-market dream home. He helped us navigate the less-conventional process seamlessly and both the sellers and us were highly satisfied with the resulting transaction. Nick and Jonathan did a great job selling our existing home. They had a solid approach to pricing, produced very high quality media content and made the whole process enjoyable. We can’t recommend this team enough!
Jonathan and Nick were the agents for the sale of my home. Jonathan had a real grasp of what needed to be done in order to sell the house. His list of tasks were invaluable in keeping the process moving. If they said they would do something they always followed through. I admire their positive attitudes, helpfulness and dedication to getting the job done well. It was a pleasure to get to know them and to work with them to sell my house. It was always clear that they saw their job as doing what was best for me. I highly recommend Jonathan and Nick of the Portola Group
We cannot say enough great things about The Portola Group. The agents are terrific. We looked a very long time to find just the right home and what we ultimately found with their help is a dream come true and wouldn’t have happened without them.Jonathan and Nick are consummate professionals: honorable, honest, respectful, smart and hardworking. They were strong advocates for us in the negotiating process, giving us excellent counsel and, as we wended our way through escrow, they went above and beyond. There were a lot of moving parts to this particular transaction and the two of them were very proactive. We benefited several times from their willingness to step in and handle things that came up... Their advice was always spot on (they are savvy and knowledgeable) and we knew we could rely on it. They worked very hard on our behalf and never once made us feel worried or concerned about the outcome. They just made it happen. From day one we knew we were in excellent hands and had selected the right agents and they never once gave us a reason to think otherwise.On a more personal note - working with Jonathan and Nick was a pleasure which is the way it should be when you’re buying a home. Absolutely no drama. They are smart, upbeat, hardworking, good people. Always accessible (even for the stupid questions), always positive, always patient, and always a pleasure to talk to. They were committed to helping us buy our home and were genuinely happy for us when that dream came true. It became more than a working relationship- it became a friendship.We recommend them without any hesitation and have already referred additional business to them. They are stars
As trustee of my late parents' estate I needed to sell their home and a rental property in Watsonville. I was referred to Jonathan and Nick by my aunt; and I am so thankful to her for this guidance.Each property presented its own set of challenges. And Jonathan and Nick did a great job of advising and executing on the sales. Their advice on the "right amount" of fixing-up and sprucing was on the mark; and both properties were made compliant and presentable for a reasonable expenditure.The rental property sale was the more difficult of the two, and it wasn't until the third set of buyers that we succeeded in closing escrow. All the escrow problems were in the buyers' camps, but Jonathan and Nick stayed on task and brought home a successful sale in the end.I would use them again in a heartbeat and I heartily recommend them to any and all.
Nick & his team are amazing to work with. This was our first time purchasing a home & it could not have gone smoother. Nick's diligence, transparency, and experience led us to one of the biggest & best decisions we've made!
Can't say enough good things about Nick and Jon. They were incredibly helpful in preparing my home for sale including coordinating and meeting inspectors, maintenance, required county items, etc. Their attention to detail, caring, kindness, knowledge and skill put my mind at ease, and made the sale of my beloved family home easier. I sold the house in a short period of time at above asking. I highly recommend The Portola Group
We have sold two properties with Nick and Jonathan at the Portola Group. Their sales approach, especially the video presentation, is excellent. Both properties very priced appropriately for the market and we had multiple offers in a few weeks. Both properties sold at or above a fair asking price.They were very attentive during the escrow close process and negotiated contingency resolutions quickly. They accurately and quickly communicated during all steps in the process. They are very prompt and professional in their communication. After the close of escrow they continued to communicate to ensure we had no questions or required follow-up. We highly recommend them.
Man, I would give Jonathan Rossi and his Portola Group team 1000 stars if I could. He, without a doubt, sets the standard for what a realtor should be. He was absolutely incredible to work with. He's personable, knowledgeable, resourceful, very competent and was extremely communicative throughout the entire home buying process. We were NOT easy to deal with. Jonathan went above and beyond for us every step of the way. Follow-up emails, texts, phone calls, etc. He kept us abreast of every situation. We knew we were in the best of hands from the beginning.Once we were in escrow he helped line-up contractors and inspections for us. He had a plethora of reliable contacts he has made over the years, all of which were almost as nice as him and were just as competent in their respective fields of service.He is an outstanding realtor and an even better person!Look no further, THIS IS the realtor you want to work with. No one will out work Jonathan Rossi.I will only use him going forward and will recommend him to any and everyone I possibly can who is in need of a realtor! He truly is a rare find. You come across people like him only a handful of times in a lifetime. I mean that whole heartedly and with absolute sincerity.My family cannot thank you enough Jonathan!! We're forever grateful my friend!!
Nick Kambic was great. Since we were out of town, Nick managed the needed upgrades and repairs and got our home on the market quickly. It also sold very quickly. He uses great, reasonably priced contractors to do any needed repairs or remodel. He really gets the job done!!
