See video > “Working with Ann on finding your dream property/home is like working with that person in your life who knows exactly what you want! She found our dream home when nobody else saw it for us. She has such a vast amount of experience, it helps with not only the purchase, but the whole picture of turning your dreams in to reality. I wish I was buying something today so I could work with Ann again…it’s a homerun!” Julie and Jon Williams Montecito, CA “Ann is a wizard of sorts. She has the uncanny ability to take plain, weird or even disastrous properties and turn them into hip, beautiful, functional spaces that would make even Pintrest cry. She sees the potential in properties nobody else sees. That results in value as a buyer. She has a particular talent for color and tone, as it relates to emotion. This creates an air of calm in your space. Not to mention her brain for function. Each inch is thought through with practical every-day living in mind. The most amazing part is, she does this with a budget in mind. She is able to find unique and wonderful things that do not have to break the bank. I would simply be lost without her. Her properties are fantastic and the photos tell it all! I love my home, mostly because of Ann’s incredible eye and generous spirit. She is always willing to help and a joy to work with! You are nuts if you don’t call this amazing and kind lady–right now!” Nancy Kaney Tippy Top Ranch
