"Wow! John & Alyssa have been outstanding in every sense. In a demanding market they helped us gain a top price for our home, with minimal effort for us, and helped us quickly find and acquire a wonderful new home. They are highly knowledgeable regarding help with all the vendors required for both transitions, and highly responsive. Thank you both!"
"My wife and I had a wonderful experience with John Sener and Alyssa Jones of Sener Jones Associates during our recent Santa Barbara home purchase experience. We were living out of the area before coming here and were so pleased with John and Alyssa who are longtime residents of Santa Barbara with personal knowledge of the community as well as extensive experience in the local real estate market. They professionally guided us through our successful home purchase and were always kind and considerate. Their personal attention and friendship continues following closure, and they have introduced to local citizens and service providers which has resulted in a smooth transition into the Santa Barbara community. We enthusiastically recommend them and feel strongly that anyone utilizing their services will be extremely pleased."
"Alyssa has helped us in the process of purchasing several properties. Her work ethic is relentless and her professionalism is in the 1% of agents in the world. We are full time RE investors, interacting with hundreds of Realtors each year. Alyssa stands out - and for good reason. She believes in the work that she does, the quality that she delivers and cares for the people she works with. We are honored to call her our agent and would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for quality, professional, caring representation in the Santa Barbara area. Second to none."

"As a long time client of John’s, we knew he was the only one who would be able to help us land in our forever home. This was our 3rd transaction working with John, and with the new addition of Alyssa, we would not have been in better hands. With trepidation of this crazy market, it often felt like we would never find our home and nerves were high. John was not only an amazing realtor but helpful in assuring us we would find the home, to be patient, and to make the right decisions. We sat tight, and waited, and sure enough, we found the home or our dreams. We are completely convinced that if not for John, we would not have been able to secure the deal and lock in our home immediately after it going on the market. With knowledge, professionalism, Alyssa on back up and a team effort, we were able to get the home, even beating out other offers! Thanks to John, we are as happy as we can be in our home, and know it was worth waiting for with the right realty team. We couldn’t be happier!"

"John Sener is outstanding! We came out from Boston to buy a place on a quiet street in Montecito, and ended up in downtown Santa Barbara. John was patient and engaged. He worked closely with us to be sure we knew what different areas had to offer and to ensure we ended up in the “right” place. He gave straightforward opinions on properties, and didn’t pressure us to buy whatever home was available. Highly recommend John for deep knowledge of market and outstanding ethics."

"Simply put- Alyssa helped us find our dream home in Santa Barbara. We gave her an impossible wishlist when we started our home search, some items which were difficult to obtain not only within our price range, but Santa Barbara proper alone, and she delivered. We had a complex purchasing contract due to the nature of the home, but Alyssa navigated it all expertly and advocated for our needs/interests at every corner. She ensured that we were always kept informed, reassured and involved, and maintained a VIP level of communication and service through the entire process (which due to the nature of our contract, lasted nearly 8 months!)…..we are so grateful that Alyssa not only found our dream home that we could afford in this crazy market, but that she also approached every obstacle with ease and confidence to make sure that nearly a year after moving in we can still proudly say that buying this home and using Alyssa was one of the best decisions we ever made.
Additionally, we were so thrilled when she partnered with John, who 5 years prior to our dream home purchase with Alyssa, John had kindly helped us with the contract review and negotiations of our first property in Santa Barbara, which was also complex in nature. John and Alyssa both have the same mindset of keeping the client’s interests at heart and providing thoughtful and thorough service through the whole process. Together, they make a dynamite team of experience, expertise, commitment and determination. We could not recommend them more to anyone looking to purchase property in Santa Barbara County!"
"We cannot express how grateful we are that you came into our lives and have done so much more than find us a wonderful home. Your support, enthusiasm, patience, and kindness have made our transition into our new lives joyous and exciting. We look forward to your friendship for many years to come!"
"As first time buyers we knew little to nothing about the process of buying a home. Alyssa was not only there every step of the way but informative, patient, and positive! She made what could have been a very stressful process such a breeze and made an exciting step of our lives a truly spectacular one. With her family roots from the hills of Santa Barbara, she was both knowledgable and incredibly passionate about the area. She gave such great advice and we really felt as though she had our backs the whole way. We thank you so much and very much recommend Sener Jones Associates!"

“I feel John went beyond "the call of duty". He solved all our problems rapidly and professionally and kept me informed almost on a daily notice - relieving me of much anxiety. There are no words to describe my gratitude to John. He made the selling of my home and experience which was memorable. There were serval unexpected curves, but John's expertise and professionalism shone through. He is an asset to Village Properties."
“We just bought a condo in Santa Barbara and Alyssa was our agent. She is a dream to work with. She is young, full of energy, has great interpersonal / people skills, and has poise and intelligence. Alyssa made herself easily available and was able to keep our home buying process on track from start to finish. I wholeheartedly recommend her for your real estate needs."
“We were impressed with the way John kept us informed every step of the process of selling our home. John cared about us and actively listened to our needs and handled any problems immediately. Our 2 ½ year old son would ask where John was if he had not seen him that day. So, I guess he stayed in touch! We have already recommended John to our family and friends.”
“John has always been a considerate person and a very good soul in the city. I came to him because I saw him as a trustworthy person who would really help make things easier for my family and me. I very much appreciate him and what he did to help simplify the whole process.”
