"We have had a wonderful relationship with the Dynamic Duo. Elaine's patience while we were looking for a new home was unending. We couldn't find the right house and just when we were about to give up that the right one couldn't be found she called and said "You have to see this house now." It was the one! We had all the help we needed to buy our home and so much was taken care of by Elaine in making it an easy process.
When we needed to sell our Carlsbad estate home that had 30 years of accumulated treasures and large grounds that needed updating. Thanks to Amber's eyes and their recommendations, things were updated and our home was beautifully staged. They found the resources we needed to get this done. It sold at the first open house. Everything was taken care of for us. After our move and sale, Elaine was still there helping us with resources we needed for our new home. We were able to call on her any time for help regarding something needed for the house. We cannot say enough about Elaine and Amber and recommend them highly to both buyers and sellers. Their warmth and friendliness continues to go on."

"I am incredibly impressed with Elaine Drake and Amber Lindsey in the sale of my home. I had listed my home with another agent and after 3 months and two failed escrows, I let the agent go and hired the best team. Elaine and Amber! They did a tremendous job."
Lake San Marcos Seller
"I recently sold a house in Lake San Marcos, Elaine Drake & Amber Lindsey, "Your Dynamic Duo", truly lived up to their name! As I live out of state, I fully expected to be there frequently for the home inspection, termite inspection, wood rot repairs, tenting the house, and various handyman work. But NO, these gals took care of everything! You should have seen the awesome staging! Their furnishings were beautiful and added so much warmth to our home. Elaine and Amber took great care as if it were their home! I wish I had another house to sell just to work with them again! I highly recommend "Your Dynamic Duo".

"Elaine Drake is one of the hardest working, most ethical realtors you will ever find! Elaine was able to find a home for me, negotiate the price, supervise home inspection, and was there for the walk thru. My family is so pleased with her that my daughter and future son-in-law just purchased a home with Elaine representing them! I highly recommend Elaine for buying or selling!"

"Amber did a great job selling our condo in Encinitas. All through the listing, showings and escrow process, things went very smoothly. We recommend her highly and will use her again. Thank you"

"Susan just forwarded me your summary of 9 offers!!!! Where can I place my name to endorse you for "Realtor of the Year". You are incredible; have a bidding war going on..... (who knows, nothing will happen if someone is not "putting their shoulder against the wheel!)"
Bought and sold a home in 2013 in Lake San Marcos, San Marcos, CA 92078.
Amber represented me for the sale of my home and also the purchase of my new home. I have to say I was incredibly impressed with Amber's intimate knowledge of the neighborhood. This turned out to be extremely valuable and instrumental in me getting full price and above full price offers for the sale of my home. I was also impressed by Amber's professionalism and her ability to respond to me almost immediately when I had questions or concerns. I felt I could always contact her and she was readily available to communicate. This was very helpful when an unforeseen issue had surfaced during the escrow process as it was then able to be resolved quickly, so my escrow closing was as smooth as possible. Probably the thing that impressed me most about Amber was I felt she genuinely was an advocate for my specific needs and requests and for this I am grateful and a forever client.

"Amber helped me to find the perfect home! She listened very closely to all of the things that were important to me regarding my new home. When viewing places, she picked up on all of the little details and compiled all of these items when searching for the right place for me. We both knew we found the right place when we walked through the door. Since I was relocating and selling my previous home I was a contingent buyer. Even though Amber was not the agent for the home I was selling she helped me to work through some challenges. Amber went the extra mile to educate me on the process, offered creative options, appreciated both the buyer and seller's perspective and did everything she possibly could to ensure I was able to close on my perfect home. You can tell she is well respected in the real estate community by the way the other agents interact with her. I have spoken to many people while I was purchasing my home and they all said when they were buying a home they never experienced or heard of the kind of great customer service that Amber provided. I would absolutely recommend Amber for buying or selling your home. You will not be disappointed."

Amazing Amber! We are so pleased Amber was referred to us. We had a difficult sale due to necessary asbestos abatement and potential mold problems. The asbestos was real the mold was not as extensive as first thought. Amber stayed on this project with very high attention to detail. We do not live in the area and so it was a greater challenge. Amber's assistance was so valuable she more than earned her commission. We can recommend her at the highest level. We are very happy with her work ethic and commitment to us as clients!
-Doug, Encinitas Seller
"We have bought five and sold four houses in the last ten years, so we had to deal with different types of agents - just ok, indifferent, slow, lazy, unprofessional, and even dishonest ones. Then came in Amber (mind you, a random choice - we just liked her picture on a flyer), and she proved to be the best - smart, fun, amiable, responsive, and, above all, scrupulous to a T. We rushed her a little, were difficult at times, but she never lost her composure and stayed attuned to our specific needs all the way through. So, if you are looking for a property in North San Diego County, call her - you will never find "a deeper well" of real estate knowledge or a higher level of integrity than hers."
-Eda & Mark, San Marcos Sellers & Vista Buyers
"The dynamic duo of Elaine Drake and Amber Lindsey should be your go to team whether buying or selling. We have bought and sold many houses and these two agents went far and beyond the best of them."

"I highly recommend Amber Lindsey & Elaine Drake if you are looking to buy a house. I was a first-time home buyer, full of questions, concerns, etc. From finding the perfect home to getting the keys in hand, Amber and Elaine made my 21-day close easy and stress free. I'm sooooooooo happy with my purchase."
Lake San Marcos Buyer
"We sold our home with Amber and also purchased our new home with her. If you want an attentive agent that is knowledgable and responsive, then she is the one for you. She was amazing in both negotiations and connections in the market with banks and other agents. She placed our home on the market and closed escrow all while we were away the entire time. She got us a new home when we thought it was impossible. One amazing agent."
