Her intuition was spot on


"From the very beginning of the home buying process, I knew Maytha was going to be an absolute pleasure to work with. I was right. Her intuition was spot on when it came to showing us potential homes, and when the rubber met the road, she performed magnificently. Her remarkable ability to work with all parties involved (selling agent, sellers, mortgage broker, escrow companies) was very apparent throughout the entire ordeal. I was a first time home buyer, and I always felt like my interests were put first. There is no doubt that I'd use Maytha again in the future, and I highly recommend anyone out there looking for (or selling) a home to reach out to her."

Attentive, knowledgeable and hard-working


"Working with Maytha made everything about the home buying process easier. There are a lot of decisions to make, and Maytha was knowledgeable, helpful, and patient with us through each step. She took great care to understand exactly what we wanted in a home and never pressured us to buy more than we were looking for. At the same time she made sure that the homes we considered were high-quality and appropriately priced. She was always willing to answer our questions and was quick to respond through email, text, and phone calls. During the escrow process she made sure nothing fell through the cracks and kept on top of all the deadlines and paperwork. In addition to being extremely attentive, knowledgeable and hard-working, she's also just very friendly and a lot of fun to go looking at houses with. She was great with my two-year old twins...they still ask about her! Thanks Maytha for making this challenging process as smooth and enjoyable as possible!"

Maytha you are really awesome & five Star!


"We were under real time pressure to find a home for ourselves, as our rental lease was expiring in a month & we were expecting our first baby also around the same time. And being a first time home buyer with so much of jargons & procedures in the real estate industry we had almost made up our mind to forego our home buying plans at least for a year and probably settle for another rental lease.

It was under these circumstances that I came in touch with Maytha, who made us believe that we can still pull it off. We had pretty strict requirements with respect to how much we were ready to spend & what we wanted. Kudos to Maytha she understood our requirements, she also understood pretty well the things going on with my schedule (doc appointment,etc), and she made our home search really a breeze through tailormade visits which suited our requirements. She also gave very insightful advices about property considering that we were going to have a baby soon.

Finally she did make us find a home within our budget & requirements, all in 3 weeks (isn't that awesome!). Then started the procedure of buying the house, she was so helpful right from the time we made the offer, to escrow, to final purchase. Guys you wouldn't believe we entered escrow the day my wife got admitted for delivery. Maytha managed it all, she took care not to disturb me too much, while following up nicely Managed everything so nicely, that we really feel indebted to Maytha for making this happen. She has that personal touch which made me feel very comfortable along the whole process of buying the house.

Maytha you are really awesome & five Star!"

I couldn’t be happier with my home buying experience


"The moment I met Maytha, I had a great feeling that she would help make my home buying experience a breeze. Maytha is knowledgeable, resourceful, a go-getter, and extremely patient.

As a first time-homebuyer, I had many questions and whenever I was unsure of something, she would make sure to explain (and re-explain) how things worked. She quickly got a sense for what I was looking for and made sure to focus in on my wants and needs for a home. She educated and walked me through the escrow process every step of the way.

I couldn’t be happier with my home buying experience or with Maytha! I am always happy to refer her to friends and family and will continue to work with her for any of my future real estate needs."

I highly recommend Maytha Shaffer!


"Maytha Shaffer assisted me selling my condo in San Marcos, Ca. Her knowledge, empathy and responsiveness made it a pleasure to work with her. But most importantly, Maytha was a sounding board, sympathetic ear and friendly navigator through all my questions. Like most folks going through the selling process, I didn't know what I didn't know! And like the professional she is, Maytha provided additional, important information to ensure a positive selling experience. I highly recommend Maytha Shaffer! "

- Deborah Crombach


In a word Maytha was great


"In a word Maytha was great. I am a person with a mobility disability and have some very specific needs. Right now we have a multi-generational family living in one space. As the grandchildren are getting bigger the house is getting smaller and stairs become more difficult for me every day.

One of the biggest things I would commend Maytha about is that she listens. We talked to her about our budget, the area in which we wanted to live and the very specific needs I have in getting around. As a result we found the perfect home for my wife and I that met all criteria. I would highly recommend Maytha Shaffer."

- Darryl Weiss


I couldn’t have asked for more


"Look no further, Maytha Shaffer is the right agent for you. Even though I’ve bought houses before and was familiar with the process, she provided essential details that are unique to the California market. I was actually overseas when searching for an agent in the San Diego area, and based on the many great reviews, I chose Maytha. I’m glad I did and you will be too. She was patient and considered all of the desires on my wish list. She even picked up my daughters and took them to the library when I had to work. How many agents would do that? I’m sure she will work tirelessly for you as she did for me. Thanks to her efforts, I have a beautiful home in a great neighborhood. I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks, Maytha!!"

Responsible, ethical, knowledgeable, tuned into her clients


"I accidentally found Maytha when I first started my search for a condo. My financial situation restricted my options to a condominium complex approved for FHA loans. With this limitation in mind, she proactively found the complexes where I would be able to get a loan and off we went. She listened to what I wanted (really listened) and did the research so that we were using our search time most efficiently. One property that interested me was not approved for FHA and she was the key to pushing that through when the HOA and the seller's agent did not take the initiative to get the job.

Responsible, ethical, knowledgeable, tuned into her clients, and willing to do whatever it takes to help her clients find their dream home. She's amazing and the best "accident" I've ever had!"

- Nancy Howe


You are the BEST!!


"This was my first home purchase and I'm so lucky to have had Maytha as my agent. She was patient and explained everything to me step by step (and yes, I had a lot of questions). Maytha has a breadth of knowledge that I did not find in other agents. She is aware and knowledgeable on many aspects if the home buying process: location, building materials, finance, and so on. She was always prompt to return phone calls and messages. She really went out of her way to advocate for me and make sure that I had the best home buying experience. In addition to her hard work, she has been an invaluable resource to a new homeowner. Thank you so much for my new home Maytha!! You are the BEST!!"

- Elan Newman


Direct, no-nonsense approach


"For anyone looking for a home, I will tell you... Absolutely DO contact this Agent! I was so impressed with the abilities and attitude of Ms. Maytha Shaffer, that I want everyone to know how outstanding this Agent is so that they may benefit from her experience, and diligence! Being a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive about the whole home buying process...Ms. Maytha Shaffer, helped guide me and my wife through this process each step of the way, providing excellent advice, insight and guidance in correctly filling out all documentation. She is that GOOD as an Agent, and outstanding as a person. Her direct, no-nonsense approach to helping you find a home is something that you will not soon forget. She's the Best!!"

We are so happy that we found Maytha


"Being first time home buyers we were very nervous about the whole process. We are so happy that we found Maytha. She walked us through everything and we ended up getting the exact home we were looking for. She was flexible, knew we were on a time crunch, and we ended up being able to close early because of her hard work and connections in the industry. She was always available and there for us when we had any questions or concerns. Thanks Maytha!!"

- Mike and Shalayna


Overcame all of the little glitches that arose


"Thank you so much for recently helping me to purchase my condo in San Elijo Hills. The entire process could not have gone any smoother. Your knowledge of the market, knowledge of all aspects of the transfer process, professionalism, and communications skills, overcame all of the little glitches that arose."

- Lindy Diamond


We highly recommend Maytha


"We have worked with Maytha on purchasing our home and had a great experience with the whole process. Because of number of things that we wanted in the house under certain price, it was difficult to find the house that fit us. On t"op of that, because of my job, I was out of country a few times during the whole process. But Maytha was very patient with us and gave us very precise advices on things that we were not clear on. At the end, we were able to purchase a house that we really love. We highly recommend Maytha for any real estate needs and would definitely use her as our agent when the time comes!!"

No pressure, professional demeanor.


"Maytha's gift is listening carefully and asking good questions to learn what the client wants and needs in their sale or purchase. She is customer focused, communicates clearly and often. She dedicates countless hours, month after month, if needed, in this challenging market and keeps you in the loop the entire time. She gives honest opinions about a house, neighborhood, price, all the while maintaining a completely no pressure, professional demeanor. I would highly recommend Maytha to sell your home or buy your next home."

- Dianne Ratzel


Wonderful new home


"Thank you for your help in guiding me through the purchase of a wonderful new home. All the time and effort you were so gracious to devote to viewing available options and giving me your honest appraisal of each made my final decision much easier. You made me feel that I had your undivided attention and that you were looking out for my interests through the sales negotiations and escrow process. You can be sure I would feel comfortable in referring you to anyone that might need a realtor."

- Joan Ferris


Maytha has the knowledge and experience


"I have been remiss in getting my review written in a timely manner, but only because I have been so buy enjoying my new home...thanks to Maytha! As a first time home buyer, I was extremely nervous and full of questions. I can't speak enough of Maytha's knowledge, expertise and most importantly herpatience with me. You hear so many stories and bad experiences, yet I have to say that it was quite easy and painless for me. Maytha has a keen sense for listening, hearing what I wanted, which makes her the perfect real estate agent. Literally the third home we looked at I just fell in love with. Even throughout the mortgage process, it was Maytha that guided me. I wasn't getting the information from my mortgage team, but rest assured Maytha has the knowledge and experience to let me know what was coming, checking in on me and always available if I had a question. Then came the dreaded home inspection...which again, thanks to Maytha being there for me with all of her experience, was a breeze! We found my home in mid March and I had the keys by the end of April. I could go on and on. As mentioned, what I was expecting to be a tedious and stressful process was quite frankly a pleasant experience, and I owe it all to Maytha for being there for me the whole way and helping me find my first home!"

She Was Always Courteous and Professional


"I can’t say enough about Maytha’s superb skills as a real estate agent. She was immensely helpful, professional, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly every step of the way as we sold my 86 y.o. Mom’s house in Carlsbad. Maytha provided us with resources for downsizing, as well as excellent advice and resources for repairs and minor renovations to update the home. Maytha has a very thorough knowledge of the real estate business and current market. She kept me informed of everything that was happening, and, she was always courteous and professional with everyone involved with the sale of house. In addition to being pleasant and friendly, Maytha is very savvy when it comes to dealing with buyers and their agents. The house sold quickly and without a hitch! Maytha is truly Super Women of the Real Estate market!"

She is a top notch realtor


"Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of working with Maytha Shaffer in the purchasing of our home in Escondido. 
Maytha began working with us two-three months before we made the move across country from WI to CA.  She was diligent at keeping us up to date on new listings that met our criteria.
Once we arrived Maytha met me two days later to map out a tour of possible homes.  At that meeting she brought to me homes recently listed-as early as that morning.  It was one of those homes we purchased.  
Maytha kept us calm throughout the entire process which moved very quickly with us making an offer within five days of arriving.  She was always willing to explain the 'California Way' to us as it differed from purchasing a home in WI.
She was a great help to me in knowing who to call for service set-up as well as everyday things as grocery stores, cleaners and the best pizza!
She is a top notch realtor and I am now lucky to consider her a friend also."

I would recommend her to anyone


"I absolutely loved working with Maytha. We were first time buyers and had no idea what we were doing and Maytha was always willing to answer our questions or clarify what was confusing. She knew exactly what we were looking for and didn't ever try and show us something that wasn't an option for us. She was easy to get a hold of and helped us get a lower rate for the condo we ended up buying. She also made sure to let us know what to look out for in our emails to make sure we were getting everything done in a timely manner. We closed earlier then expected and everything ran really smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone!"
 
-Christine Hatch & Sean Delgado
 


extremely responsive and knowledgeable


"I really cannot recommend Maytha Realty highly enough. In a hot/difficult market, Maytha helped us find, bid on, and secure our dream home within six weeks. She was creative in seeking out properties for sale, or that were about to be on sale, and kept us going when we go discouraged. When my husband and I disagreed or were unsure or otherwise needed a third opinion, Maytha was an invaluable sounding board. She was extremely responsive and knowledgeable but never pushy; we always felt that we were in the best possible hands. When it came to the Sellers, though, she was a bulldog! Maytha and her team always fought for us, including getting quotes from other escrow companies when ours was ripping us off and tracking down a missing shutter months after we closed."

-Chelsea & Mike Santos


Maytha just got things done


"Maytha has been working with us off and on for almost three years to find a home. The beginning was tough because of our max budget, military deployment, expanded family but with continuous communication she finally found our home. She understood what we wanted and kept all of our ideas in mind. She worked past normal working hours to walk us through the paperwork that is involved in purchasing our home. Even through casual conversation when I was complaining about an issue we were having she made phone calls to straighten it out even when it was not required of her. We are so grateful for her tireless efforts and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. I even recommended a friend to contact her about finding a rental home for their family and she did that as well."

communication and process went smoothly


"Maytha completely vanquished my preconceived notions about what to expect as an out-of-state property seller. nThe communication and process went smoothly. And, I credit Maytha for her sensitive handling of our questions and concerns along the way. Without hesitation, I will say Maytha went above & beyond the call of duty. nI'm pleased to provide this recommendation and will gladly speak to anyone who wants to know more."

will absolutely use her again


"I've bought and sold almost a dozen homes so have a lot of experience with realtors and will tell you Maytha is the absolute best I ever worked with. She's knowledgeable, organized, thorough and proactive. There wasn't one detail that she missed and when my mortgage broker started flaking she was all over him and coached him through the process. I highly recommend Maytha and will absolutely use her again. And again!"

professional expertise was evident


Dear Maytha,
Mark and I want to thank you for the excellent job you did in selling our Carmel Valley condominium. Your professional expertise was evident in the way you handled all the paperwork, forms, and requirements necessary for a successful closing of escrow. You obviously love your job. This was shown in the commitment of time you gave to the many open-houses you held, to the many follow-up calls you made to potential buyers, and the many visits you made to the "condo" to check that everything always looked "just right". "Don't worry, I'll take care of it" was your favorite saying- from arranging for the Termite Inspection to coordinating with the inspection for the final walk-through.
Again, our deepest thanks.
Helene and Mark Jacobson


She was very patient with us


"After a few rounds of looking at houses, Maytha would know whether we like the house or not just by looking at our reaction to the house. She was very patient with us while we were checking / unchecking the items in the list of our dream house. After 6 months of house hunting and few rejects of our offer because of bidders with more down payment and much higher offer, we ended up buying a house, which needed some cosmetic work. We were very lucky to get that house below the market price and before it came to market because of Maytha's pro-activeness. It is a very bold step for a firstime buyer. But Maytha was there to guide us till the end. She even came with us for shopping to guide us on what to buy at the right price and within our budget. At the end, I am glad we made this choice and we got to remodel the house the way we wanted within our budget. I would surely recommend Maytha for her diligence and personal touch to her work."
