He kept everything on track and made a 3-week escrow as stress free as possible. All of our questions, cares and concerns were quickly, competently and completely addressed. Dream came true - home on the beach!" ~Mike and Laurie Ventura

Chip Bartley was amazing! He IS the hardest working realtor we have ever met. He represented us in both the sale of our home and the purchase of another. He and his team were in constant contact with us and made sure that we fully understood every aspect. He kept us informed way beyond any other realtor. Chip made sure that both transactions were completed quickly and as stress free as possible. His marketing strategy and knowledge of the home sales process worked to deliver outstanding results in both transactions. Without a doubt, we would use him again! ~Greg & Debbie Ventura


My wife and I recently worked with Chip to purchase our house in Ventura. Chip is very knowledgeable in both the dynamics of the Ventura market and nuances of real estate today. He was very patient and accommodating as we looked at a multitude of different areas and property types. I would recommend him 100% to any family or friends looking to purchase in the area. Thanks again Chip (and Kristin) for helping us find a great place for our family! ~Mike & Carrie Ventura


Chip was awesome. My wife and I found a house that we purchased during our wedding week while in Hawaii. Chip helped us thorough the entire process. He was considerate but at the same time realistic about expectations. We couldn't have done this without him!!! ~Mike & Vanna Silverstrand
