In the almost 10 properties we have purchased, Ann, by far has been the BEST realtor that we have ever worked with.  She listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect property!  Ann went above and beyond all expectations that we had for a real estate agent.  When things got difficult with inspections and underwriters, Ann reached out to her pool of resources to get the problems remedied.  When the task was too small to hire out, Ann, without hesitation, rolled up her sleeves and got the job done herself!  What is unique about Ann and her approach as an agent is that she is always a step ahead of the process and is ready with potential options for any problem that does arise. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Mike and Ann Scherer went the extra mile for us in both our house sale and house purchase.  Mike walked us through a difficult and complicated house sale.  His persistent and level- headed approach ensured we sold our house for a fair price.  Ann facilitated a great house purchase for us.  She was detail-oriented without overburdening an already complicated process.  Mike and Ann¬ís knowledge of mountain living and real estate came through in our transactions.  We have referred family and friends to the Scherer team.  We look forward to using them again.

We would like to thank you for representing us in the sale of our home. Your extensive knowledge of the market in our area made our decisions easier. As an added bonus, with your designer's help our home was able to show all of it's potential. The fact that we received 4 offers after the first open house was amazing.

  We would also like to thank you for all the extras things you did for us.  We appreciated your assistance with our constant traveling back and forth from Florida, for rescuing Shelia when she locked her keys in the car at closing and for helping make arrangements at the lovely Toll House Hotel for our last nights in town, just to name a few.

Your professionalism, confidence, and calm manner made the sale easy for us. Again, thank you Mike and Ann.

I can't rate Summit Properties highly enough! Their knowledge and hard work have made my dreams of mountain living a reality!

I moved to the area (and country) in 2006 and was looking for experts in the highly regarded Los Gatos/Santa Cruz mountains area and one name kept coming up in my research - Mountain Mike! During a visit to the area before I moved I sat down to lunch with Mike and Ann and we talked through my hopes and dreams for living in the area and they offered practical advice and an experienced view of the options, as well as financial and building contacts to make the move that much easier. During the house hunting process Ann personally helped me view a number of outstanding properties which met my needs or broadened my ideas until we found the perfect house! 3 years later I still live in my dream home which my girls and myself love!  

Take my advice - work with the best - Ann and Mike at Summit Properties!

That was an outstanding experience by the way and from a business point of view, we never met face to face.  Very unusual indeed.  Your advice and direction was perfect.

Mike, Ann,
Oni and I would just like to thank you both for the sterling support and all the effort you put in with regard to our house purchase. You really made everything easy, and we appreciate your patience in taking us through each step and the sage advice you gave along the way. You made the process so easy and the quick (almost immediate) responses to email made the process smoother and less stressful. If you ever need a recommendation we'd be more delighted to give it. Outstanding service all the way!
