“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. ”

-Cliff and Evelyn Andrews, Client


“”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.” ”

-Larry & Jeanette Abbott, Client


“”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.” ”

-Carol & Eric Schrader, Client


“Olga Menendez is one of a kind. Not afraid of hard work, Olga is highly efficient and she always gets the job done as quickly as possible. We have been fortunate to work with Olga on several transactions and she has always impressed us with her honesty and her professionalism. She is an excellent communicator and she is well connected in the community. ”

-Cynthia and Stephen Vagnini, Client


“Last August, my husband and I came to San Francisco and areas to the north and east with the idea of relocating in retirement. After a discouraging week, we headed south. As we came into Monterey, we saw an open house sign and decided to follow the arrows. The house wasn’t for us, but we really liked the realtor, Olga Menendez, with whom we met again as we ended up spending the rest of our trip time on the peninsula. From there, Olga helped us with everything from finding a realtor to sell our house in Denver to locating doctors in Monterey. During a second trip in October, she patiently and cheerfully accompanied me to over 30 homes. Then, we repeated the top ones when my husband flew in. Since we were out of state, Olga handled a myriad of details for us until the day finally came in December when she met us at our new home and handed us the keys. We walked in and found a huge welcome basket on the kitchen island – from Olga. She is a true professional!”

-Leslie Patino, Client


“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.”

-Charles Wollitz, Client


“We met Olga at an Open House that we visited about a year and a half ago. At the time we were just starting to think about a second home in the Carmel area where we have vacationed for several years. Though we were generally familiar with Carmel, we were not very focused on when or where in the area, we should purchase. She showed us around and presented several options knowing that we were in the “early thinking stage” in a low key manner without putting any pressure on us, which we greatly appreciated. As we became more ready to purchase, Olga sent us listings on a regular basis within our price range and general area of interest. Once we settled on a location and were “ready to go” Olga worked with us on a couple of offers and provided great counsel leading to a purchase that we just recently made which we are very happy with. Olga is terrific and our absolute unequivocal recommendation for anyone looking to purchase on the Monterey Peninsula!”

-Lew and Jean Greenblatt, Client


“I first met Olga Menendez years ago . . . Olga was a true pleasure with whom to work. Olga was perfect on all accounts. Later, when I had other clients who needed real estate services, Olga was the obvious choice as my number one referral due to the qualities she demonstrated when we had worked together. Olga has never disappointed my clients or me. I couldn’t be happier with the service. My number one referral for real estate transactions!”

-Kyle A. Krasa, Esq., Client


“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, Client


“”To use the services of a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent is good, but to use the services of the same professional and knowledgeable real estate agent once again is great”. That has been our recent experience with Olga and what she has offered to us regarding her professional experience in our real estate transactions. She assisted us greatly when we moved from New England to Pebble Beach and now recently from Pebble Beach to Carmel-by-the-Sea. Even during some trying times while searching for the most suitable property, she stuck with us no matter what and did not recede from her diligent efforts to be sure she was still with us until we finally found our home. We highly recommend Olga for anyone who is selling or purchasing a home so they too can use the services of a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent just as we have with Olga, not once, but twice.””

-Dan & Nadi Chaika, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, Client


“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! ”

-Robert and Rita Montgomery, Client


“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, Client


“There are few people who, when given an assignment, will run with it and make it happen. Olga Menendez is one of those select people who handled our transaction in a professional, yet personal way. She helped make our dream a realization. Her dedication and determination resulted in an offer on our home in two weeks and an escrow that closed in 27 days. This is quite a feat in today’s market. Her eye for detail along with her expertise and diplomacy resulted in a successful purchase of our dream home. Olga dotted every “i” and crossed every “t”, which ensured a low-stress transaction. Needless to say, we would recommend Olga for any real estate needs.”

-Randy & Mary Draper, Client


“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.”

-Wendy Brewer Lama, Client


“There are no adequate words to express our appreciation for you. We feel blessed to have you for our Realtor. Through the entire process you were tenacious in pursuing the ultimate goal of purchasing our home. You remained positive when the option of buying the house seemed dim. You were steadfastly sensitive every time we called your cell phone, walked in your office or emailed. You made time to answer our questions and meet our needs. We are extremely thankful for your honesty and integrity. Thank you for going above and beyond and for a warm developed friendship.”

-Phil and Adrianne, Client


“Professional, personable and pragmatic! Olga was wonderful at finding the best way to showcase our house and sell it quickly. At a very difficult turning point in my life, Olga listened and made practical suggestions… She has a very collaborative, caring approach that can’t be duplicated. …Olga has great contacts and connections and worked diligently to ensure everything goes smoothly. I am pleased at the price for which it sold, and would never consider using anyone else.”

-Natalie Fryberger, Client


“”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, Client


“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. ”

-Joe Diaz Jr. President Spherion Staffing, Client


“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.”

-Donna and Win, Client


“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! ”

-Allison and Rafael Mendez, Client


“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.”

-Rondelle Cagwin, Client


“Olga represented us in the sale of our house in Bay Ridge along the corridor of Highway 68 and the purchase of another home further out the corridor. She did an excellent job in both instances. Her communication was timely, clear and effective; we never felt confused or out of the loop in the sale or the purchase, no mean feat with the complexities involved. She provided advice when we needed it, and we counted on her to keep the processes moving along. She helped stage the house and brought in a photographer who captured the property looking it’s very best. Our opinion is that thanks to Olga, both the selling and the buying were were done as fast as possible. She has also followed up after we closed, which has helped with a remodel and have a repair done covered under the home warranty. We will always be grateful that Olga was our agent and give her our highest recommendation for anyone looking for an outstanding realtor. ”

-Tracy and Alicia Hammond , Client



“Olga is a consummate professional with a lot of experience. My husband and I feel so lucky to have had her as our realtor while searching for our new home. She was recommended to us with good reason. When an acquaintance of ours steered us toward her, Olga was just about to leave for vacation. This didn’t phase us, or her, because from our first conversation with her to the moment she put our new house keys in our hands, Olga was thoughtful, attentive, organized, easily-accessible and always on top of everything. Even while she was away on vacation, she kept in touch with us daily and was there for us, start to finish, reminding us of what to do every step of the way. There are other good realtors, of course, but no one could outperform Olga. One of the many things that sets her apart is her calm demeanor. If she ever got stressed during our experience, it didn’t show, and we were thankful for her soothing presence. We love our new home. Thank you so much, Olga!”

-Lynn Archer, Client



“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.”

-Bardia Afsari and Novin Ghoudsi Moghaddam , Client



“After three very successful transactions with Olga, she will always be our go-to realtor! Olga’s attention to detail, and strict adherence to timelines, has made all our transactions stress-free. The reason to have a realtor is for someone to manage the entire process, meet the inspectors, facilitate your negotiations in a polite yet confident manner, work with your mortgage broker and title company, have trades people ready for added advice, etc. This is what Olga does effortlessly. Looking forward to working with Olga in the years to come.”

-Monique M, Client



“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. ”

-Dru Mattimoe, Client



” When we moved to an assisted living facility, we needed someone to sell the home that was experienced and would truly help us through the process. We would never have been able to do it without Olga Menendez’s expert guidance, attention to detail, and unwavering dedication and positive attitude. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make it happen. She not only walked us through the process of doing a light remodel on the house, she actually helped us to hire, supervise, and keep the contractors on schedule. She made what could have been a difficult ordeal–trying to sell a house in Monterey during a steep decline in market values–a smooth, quick, and positive transaction for my family.” Olga is an incredible professional. We simply could not have hired a better real estate agent. We will be forever grateful to her and would recommend her to anyone seeking an agent in the future.”

-Dr. John and Sylvia Anderson, Client


“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.”

-Jay Kunkle, CMPS, Client


“We were looking for a property in the Carmel area for a while with out a realtor. My husband happened to walk into an open house and instantly knew Olga was the realtor for us. Olga is a fantastic realtor because she is very knowledgeable of the Carmel and Monterey area, she listened to exactly what we wanted and definitely delivered. She made the whole home buying

process very easy. Olga always returned every single one of our calls and emails (there were A LOT!) very promptly. Answering all our questions very thoroughly and thoughtfully. Olga worked hard to negotiate a very good deal for us. She is a pleasure to work with, we would highly recommend Olga and definitely work with her again! ”

-Anna & Peter Sohn, Client


“You are so very special and a real credit. Because of you, our entire experience in buying our home was smooth. You are not just a “Realtor”, but a friend for life. You went out of your way by caring for us personally. Thank you for being you.”

-Bill and Sandy Gavello, Client


“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. ”

-Jerry and Jessica Weers, Client


“”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.” ”

-Charles M. Shepardson Retired Broker, Client


“”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.” ”

-Dan & Nadereh Chaika Walt Disney Animation Studios, Client


“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. I highly recommend your services to other buyers or sellers. Thank you.”

-Lynn Merideth, Client


“Out of the 5 very different experiences with 5 different realtors and 5 different agencies, Olga Menendez was far and above the best realtor, we worked with. From the moment that we met with Olga to discuss selling our property, she exhibited the highest professional standards. … she prepared us for what was in store, provided expert sales analysis, readable statistics, and great counsel. This was a most successful partnership. …Olga kept us fully informed at all times. We did not have to initiate contact. …never lost enthusiasm.”

-Dr. Hugo and Karen Ferlito, Client


“After our mother’s death, my brother, sister and I were faced with selling the family home. We interviewed several real estate agents who either gave very low estimates (the house did look quite a mess) or were overly enthusiastic. We chose Olga Menendez because she was enthusiastic but realistic. She could see the potential of the house and advised what needed to be done to make it a clean slate for prospective buyers to see as their own. She also emphasized that the sale price would be dependent on what improvements we were willing and could afford to do. We elected to do most of the work ourselves which involved de-cluttering, painting and decorating. All through the process, Olga gave us practical advice that I believe helped to present our house in the best light. Olga also has a sense of humor, listened to our concerns and ideas and was a great help in the whole process. ”

-Megan, Kevin and Lenka, Client


“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.”

-Dennis Boehlje, Client
