We found Frank through a friend who lives in Aptos. We wanted a Realtor® who knew the area well. Frank is good people and we were lucky to find someone who I would absolutely trust with all my real estate needs. When we first started looking, Frank listened to what we wanted and didn’t want. There are too many times where you will have “advisors” who think they know what you want and don’t truly “listen” to you. He heard us and took us to several listings. From there, we were able to narrow down the exact neighborhoods and details that we wanted. From start to finish, and to this day, Frank is extremely responsive — customer service is rare these da...— John G.
Frank is our go-to-guy for real estate investing advice and for buying and selling residential property. Twelve years ago, Frank assisted us with investing proceeds from an exchange sale and purchasing a duplex in Watsonville. He later brokered the sale of that same duplex when we purchased a condo near the beach as our primary residence. During that time Frank has also worked with us on two, 1031 Exchange transactions, once on the selling side then later on the buying side of the transaction. More recently, we went to Frank for advice about selling a long-held property in Felton. Frank’s knowledge of the current market and his wisdom around the rea...— rlarsonfmp
Frank was FANTASTIC to work with. We had some unique challenges that came up during our purchase and our sale, but Frank was able to find solutions for things that others would not have been able to find. He got us top dollar for our home for a unique property (at a time when the market was slow), and helped us get a good deal on the home we purchased. He is extremely personable and very knowledgeable, and I can’t recommend him highly enough.— Steve A.
Frank and the DeBernardo team helped my family buy/sell several houses in Aptos. He’s a great guy, a dedicated father, and a fantastic Realtor®. He never missed an appointment and followed up after the transaction until we were extremely satisfied with our purchase.— Andrew D.
We were able to purchase our vacation home in less than 2 months due to the exceptional guidance and support from Frank. He is not only knowledgeable about the area in which he works but also knows the business extremely well. When he prepared our offer, letter he ensured we had the number of days to close split in a manner to allow us to complete all inspections on the property as well as make our offer stand out in terms of a faster close for the seller. This speaks to his extensive experience serving in the real estate industry. He went above and beyond to answer all our questions and even connect us with inspection and other service professional...— Buyer
