We are incredibly grateful to the MFW Team for representing us in the sale of our historic landmark home. We are extremely pleased that they connected us with the perfect buyer to carry on protecting an important piece of architectural history. We also appreciate the buyer/seller relationship they created and maintained throughout the transaction.
The team was always there to guide us through every step of the process. We give MFW our highest recommendation!

Brittney was absolutely a God-send for us. We were first-time homebuyers looking for our forever home and very picky! We truly believe that we secured our dream property because we had Brittney on our side. She continually impressed us with her professionalism, expertise, business savviness, communication skills, and personable nature. We took a long time (1 year+) looking at homes during the pandemic, and Brittney was always patient and understanding each time we said a home was not "the one". She was never pushy and even supported us when we decided that we needed to stop moving forward on a property that simply was not what we wanted. Her honesty, candor, and full transparency throughout the whole process made us feel confident and comfortable. She readily took the time to explain things to us whenever we were slightly confused or worried, even worked around our schedule to have important conversations, and was consistently responsive by phone/text/email.
She negotiated the deal on our dream home with such finesse, we still cannot believe how "easy" she made it all seem. She facilitated not just our purchase, but even the odds and ends like securing homeowner's insurance, home warranty, plumbers, etc. She readily provided renovation and interior design suggestions when we asked. (She has incredible taste!) Down to furniture placement, Brittney even helped us make our mark on our home! We won't ever stop raving to friends that are looking to buy or sell just how much we appreciated Brittney. She was simply the best!

We are so glad we found Brittney! She has so much knowledge and expertise about the Ventura housing market and provides a fantastic end-to-end service. Brittney helped us find the right house for us, and she knew the right strategy for placing a winning offer in an extremely competitive housing market. After our offer was accepted, Brittney and her team supported us through the process of getting our home move-in ready. She recommended world-class vendors to help us through the process and even created a schedule for us all the way up until move-in day to ensure nothing would fall through the cracks. She gave us tips that we wouldn't have known about as first-time homebuyers, like when to book the moving company and even design advice. We appreciated Brittney's white-glove service, and we highly recommend her if you are looking for an experienced, effective, and diligent professional to help you through the homebuying process.

We had the pleasure to work with Brittney Ferro on the sale of our 3000 sq ft+ hillside home in Ventura. The experience was nothing less than amazing. She brings the total package when representing: not just helping with things typically in an agent's scope, but also going out of her way to help us with staging, coordinating repairs, ordering supplies, and even helping find boxes in a pinch. She is excellent at communication; always confirming appointments prior to a meeting and providing timelines and checklists to keep us all on track. By doing so, she was a truly calming presence through the selling process for our family. As a mom, I was very appreciative of how sensitive she was to the impact this process had on our child. She made sure to minimize the impact as much as possible. As always happens in the home selling process, unexpected things came up, but I couldn't have imagined a more professional, patient, and well-experienced hand to guide us from start to finish. In all, we sold our home well over the asking price and the transition was as easy as possible. Our only regret is that we are relocating out of the area and cannot use her for purchasing our next home.

We first met Belinda at an open house that she was presiding over. She impressed us then with her professionalism, her knowledge of the house she was selling, and her interpersonal skills (she was neither too forward nor too aloof but seemed to know just the right amount of attention to give us as we strolled through the house). I took her card that day.
We contacted several real estate agents trying to find the right person to sell our home in Ojai. Among a very qualified field of agents, Belinda continued to be a stand-out. The portfolio she brought to our initial meeting was thorough, and she enhanced the information with her current analysis of the market. Her knowledge covered local, state, and national trends, and her estimated market value for our home was in the mid-range of the other estimates we received. This we felt was a positive sign that she neither overvalued to impress us nor under-valued to make herself a quick sale. She was detail-oriented while also understanding and providing the big picture. We of course hired Belinda as our agent. Selling a home can be nerve-racking and emotionally taxing. Belinda provided advice in preparing the house for potential buyers, and her marketing was exceptional. Not surprisingly, she proved to be an excellent hand-holder, a brilliant negotiator on our behalf, and an expert at contract details. Though we were overjoyed when she sold our house, we were sad to no longer need her services. We had grown quite fond of this talented young woman. With great confidence, we recommend Belinda as the consummate professional real estate agent.

This is the third transaction we have done with Belinda over the past ten years. We didn't even consider anyone else along the way. Belinda is tough but KIND and we really appreciate that style. Our first transaction was a purchase and our last two were sales. She is perfect if you are buying or selling in both Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. During a stressful time, selling/buying a home, Belinda was calm and comforting energy.
Certainly, consider her if you are in the market.

Belinda Wynn has been our realtor in 4 successful transactions, one of which was quite complicated. We have found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. Belinda is also very patient and caring. We would use her services again in a heartbeat and fully recommend her.
This is my fifth transaction with Char and her team. Previously Char successfully lead me through two purchases and two sales. This time, I was the buyer in an ultra-competitive market. Char's in-depth knowledge of the Ojai market and her super savvy offer development skills resulted in my offer standing out against 10 other competing offers! In addition to the usual basics - fair price, escalation clause, and short closing window - Char suggested unique strategies such as: Abbreviated Contingencies and Paying Sellers Closing Expenses. I can't say enough about the excellent service she provides. Not just responsive and kind, Char is proactive - anticipating my needs and any potential challenges.
My wife and I are so very appreciative of the quality representation provided by Char Michaels and the Team in the sale of our Ojai home. The level of professionalism, communication, negotiation skill, and overall management of the process could not have been better.
In the middle of the global health crisis, we listed our home of 20 years with Char Michaels and her colleague, Belinda Wynn knowing their strong reputation for integrity, trust, and accountability. Of course, we could not have foreseen the numerous challenges presented by the COVID pandemic so we were concerned. Char addressed our anxiety with calm and grace and tackled the disruption of "normal operating procedures" with focused intensity moving smoothly over each obstacle. A successful outcome (listing to close) was amazingly accomplished in under 45 days in the face of the epidemic.
We highly recommend Char Michaels and Belinda Wynn to everyone considering property acquisition or sale. Their commitment to customers and their passion for excellence make them a winning team.
