Ana and the whole Steve Ploetz team are the best. We've bought and sold several properties, first time in North County SD, and they helped us get 2 awesome properties. She was the difference in this tight market and seller's agents waited for our offer because of how she presented us and assured sellers we would perform and close. We were not the highest offer or the most prompt, but Ana got us our top choices of properties, steering us away from ones which were suspect, overpriced, or just fishy. We've done deals without agents and having Ana proved to us why you need an agent. She knew about everything as we had a lot of questions and even helped us post post-deal with some questions with a condo we purchased. She is the best and you will feel it when you walk into a hot property with tons of other folks in line to look at it. You will be glad you hired her and the Ploetz team as your …

Their knowledge, experience, and confidence stands out. We felt like important people viewing properties with her, and we know what it feels like to walk in not represented or without good representation. The paperwork team is excellent as well, Eli and everyone else.

Seller

Excellent service with Steve and the Team going far beyond expectation! He kept on top of the total transaction and believe we would not have gotten the house sale completed without his actions and determination. He also has an extensive list of vendors and was able to coordinate the work needing to be done as we were out of state! I fully recommended Steve and his team for their professionalism and market knowledge!

Buyer

I recently relocated from Santa Monica to Oceanside for work, without any knowledge of the area. I feel blessed that the relocation company that I was provided got me into contact with Ana. Ana was an absolute pleasure to work with during a crazy (sellers) housing market. She has extensive knowledge of the area, was always responsive to my messages, and knew how to negotiate. She helped me purchase my home within a couple of months of working with her! What I appreciated the most during this process was her honesty. Honesty is such a hard thing to get, especially in a transaction business- because it is just volume and numbers. I never felt like I was "just another number" while working with her. Ana was honest about how the housing trends, she was honest about locations in North County, honest about putting in an offer and sometimes not putting in an offer. She was never pushy or agg…

Ana was honest about how the housing trends, she was honest about locations in North County, honest about putting in an offer and sometimes not putting in an offer. She was never pushy or aggressive. I felt as though she genuinely cared about where I was going to live. With all that said, I will with no-doubt go with Ana again when I decide to sell or decide to purchase another property, and will recommend her to any of my friends or family.

My lender actually put me in contact with Ana & Steve and I couldn't have asked for a better team and overall experience. I primarily worked with Ana and she was professional, she kept in close contact to update me, made sure to address issues that arose, and was very friendly. With her help I bought the place I was dreaming of. As soon as it came on the market, I was eyeballing it. She helped me each step of the way and now it is mine! This was my first time buying and I heavily relied on having a team that would carry me and Steve and Ana certainly did that. It was the second home that I viewed in this crazy market and still they were able to get me the place. After all the horror stories I had heard about this market, my expectations were low and I thought I would be searching for a long time. I am beyond grateful for the recommendation to them. 5 stars!

Ana from the Ploetz Team was so great to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and responsive. I cannot recommend her enough - she is a solid 10/10! I also appreciated working with the other two members of the Ploetz team, Steve and Eli.

Rami A.

It was a pleasure working with Ana and the team. She was professional and persistent in helping us find a home. We moved from out of town making the process a bit more challenging, but Ana was quick to schedule viewings and tour the homes on our behalf. We are very happy with our purchase.
