"With Monica you not only have a knowledgeable, talented and respected real estate agent with over 22 years experience, you have a personal ally who is committed to finding you the right home and protecting your best interest throughout the process. Moreover, the most wonderful part about working with Monica is that she brings a unique expertise to her practice - she is professionally trained in personal and business coaching and deeply understands the emotional side of buying a home. Monica's skill in helping us get clear about our objectives and supporting us unconditionally, helped us have a wonderful home buying experience. My husband and I have referred several colleagues and friends to her, and all have raved about their experience. We give Monica our highest possible recommendation!"

-Chris Sneathen and Dr. Britt Andreatta , Director of Learning and Development, lynda.com 

"Monica is simply the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. We switched to her when we were moving to Santa Barbara from a large national firm, first looking for a rental then a house. We never looked back. She is not only knowledgeable, experienced, thorough, detail oriented, personable; she also invested time in us. She really spent time to make sure we get what we wanted, far from just a transaction. And she comes with a network of reliable referrals that money can't buy. And don't be surprised with the extra steps she would take just to make sure everything is working the way it should (personal meetings with sellers to present the offer, walking the property line, you name it). We feel very fortunate to have found her to help us and highly highly recommend her - a great caring person who happens to be a real estate expert in Santa Barbara."

-George Kitagawa and Elaine Kitagawa, CFO,  lynda.com

"Monica Lenches is fantastic.  She is an expert and knows all you need to know about the Santa Barbara County real estate market. She puts in as much time as necessary to get the job done and is 100% dedicated to her clients. Not only has she helped me individually on several occasions, she has also helped my clients. I trust her unequivocally and I highly recommend Monica, without hesitation."

-David Tappeiner, Fell, Marketing, Montgomery, Attorney/Partner

"Working with Monica Lenches and the team at Coast & Valley Properties was one of the best choices we made in our home buying process. We could not have asked for a better experience. We are very detail-oriented people and had A LOT of questions. Monica took the time to explain everything; there was nothing we signed that we didn't fully understand first. We were told buying a home is the most stressful time in a person's life but, honestly, we didn't feel it. Monica makes sure every doubt/worry/stressor is managed before it feels overwhelming making the entire process a wonderful growth opportunity. We learned so much from her and are truly grateful that we had such a knowledgeable, caring professional by our side throughout this process."

–Angeli Mancuso and Brandon Lefleur

Monica always exceeds expectations as she is a consummate professional, friendly, thorough,well informed and goes the extra mile to accomplish her clients goals. Not only that but she's just a joy to be around. "If it hadn't been for Monica we never would have found our dream home. She knew what we wanted and had the resourcefulness to find it. Monica was sharp, easy to work with, sensitive to our needs and concerns, yet extremely dynamic when it came to closing the deal. She has the highest integrity as do the people with whom she surrounds herself."

-Michael and Lani McLychok

"From finding the perfect home and closing escrow to selling our home years later, Monica supported us 100%, focusing on what WE wanted. It was Monica's knowledge of the marketplace & willingness to go above and beyond that created a wonderfully nurturing experience for us. If you're interested in getting what you want, we highly recommend Monica for the job."

-Michael and Nannette McDonough

"As a buyer, and later as a seller, with very specific needs, Monica listened to me from beginning to end. Her unwavering and tireless support, together with detailed and prompt follow-through, resulted in the purchase of a home I had not thought possible! Monica cares, and it shows in her extraordinary and professional manner of making things happen."

-Antony Lonsddale

"After a year of searching in this extremely competitive market, we met Monica. We were thrilled to find our beautiful new home shortly thereafter. Monica stayed with us before, during and especially AFTER the sale, exceeding our highest expectations of what a Realtor should be by making the buying of our home an enjoyable experience. Monica has earned our trust, admiration and heartfelt thanks."

-Mark and Cheryl Glace


"I have known Monica Lenches for over twenty years. When we met, I was the County Sales Manager calling on Monica as a client for First American Title. Because of Monica's kind nature and our mutual passion for real estate, we quickly became friends as well as business associates. Through the years, my regard for Monica as a professional with impeccable ethics and integrity has grown and been reconfirmed repeatedly. She is fully committed to her clients and brings her experience, negotiating skills and resourcefulness to every transaction. Monica is a genuinely caring person who has earned my highest respect and the highest respect of the real estate community."

-Karen Chackel, Vice President, First American Title Co. 

"I have worked with Monica Lenches for the last two years on several real estate transactions. During that time I have come to know her well and deeply respect her professionalism, commitment and genuine care for her clients. I have always found her to be extremely thoughtful and accurate in both assessing her client's needs and advocating effectively on their behalf. Monica provides her clients with solid, well researched advise, which clearly stems from her years of real estate experience. She is truly a dream to work with, as her transactions are always seamless, her clients always grateful for her counsel and her results solid. What truly sets Monica apart is her unparalleled integrity and dedication to the collaborative process. I look forward to my next opportunity to work with Monica."

-Jennifer Ellison, Summit Funding Inc., Mortgage Banker

"I have worked with many realtors over the years. I always tell people that there are a select few that are in a class above the rest: those who thoroughly understand the critical factors that can impact a given transaction, and who consistently seek information that helps them to better serve their clients. Monica is part of this group. She also takes time to listen carefully to the goals and requirements of the buyers and sellers she represents, often assisting clients to clearly define these for themselves. As a result, she can evaluate all potential risks and opportunities based on their unique preferences and situation. When you work with Monica, it quickly becomes clear that her focus is on long-term relationships. Her clients can be confident that she is always working in their best interests."

-Jarret Gorin, Vanguard Planning, Owner

"Monica Lenches is a special individual who brings a unique and caring perspective to her real estate practice. As a Realtor, she consistently puts her clients' needs first, bringing a superior degree of integrity and genuine care to the sales experience. She is extremely knowledgable about the market, well networked, resourceful, and diligent. Monica is more interested in getting people what they want based on their goals and objectives than selling them what she thinks they should have. The experience of working with Monica is second to none. I have never worked with a more dedicated professional. With Monica you gain a friend and partner for life."

–Michael McDonough, McDonough Insurance Services, Owner
