It is with pleasure I write this letter of recommendation for the fine job you did in selling my father's house in Big Canyon. You were professional from start to finish and you invested heavily in the program to sell the house, both in time and dollars. (Thank you for the continuous advertising for six months across a myriad of publications.)
TIMOTHY J. CROSSON, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Our family chose you to be our listing agents because we researched who sold the most homes in Big Canyon and your team clearly stood out as the best. It was interesting that when asked at what price to list our house your team said between $3.9 million and $4.5 million, depending on how long you want it to take. We were not in a hurry so we chose $4.5MM and six months later we sold for $3.9 million. (Conversely, a competing agent suggested our house was worth between $5 and $6 million; I think they thought an exaggerated value would get them the listing!) As any good agent should, you provided our listing with great exposure and significant traffic and when we finalized the deal, you handled the prickly negotiations with calm, resolute professionalism.
As you may recall, we interviewed four real estate firms and gave each one stringent guidelines about what we wished to see in a presentation. Villa was in the top two, and ultimately won. You followed your plan to a most successful conclusion!
MARGARET AND IRWIN MUCH, SELLER IN BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Your marketing of every sort was unparalleled in our opinion. Throughout the months that it took to find the perfect buyer who would understand and appreciate the quality that we put into a ground up reconstruction, we were amazed that you never ever strayed from your plan. The photography was first class, the ads were captivating, and your continued expenditure week after week after week in the best publications all paid off. That, coupled with incredible contacts (basically knowing everyone in, on, near or even familiar with Big Canyon and the Club) made the eventual sale a certainty and made getting us close to our asking price a reality.
With our hectic travel schedules it was wonderful to know we never had to worry about the house, the grounds or the showings – and we thank you sincerely for treating our property as if it were yours.
We may have made your jobs more challenging by not allowing open houses but you continued to bring in qualified prospects, regardless, from countless other sources.
Margaret and I would recommend the two of you to anyone and everyone and we hope that you will call upon us to do so. If we choose to buy again in Orange County there is no question that we will be calling YOU!
Thank you sincerely for being dedicated, caring and so very professional.
Lindsay and Natalie did such an outstanding job of selling our Big Canyon home six years ago that when we contemplated returning, we contacted them. Due to the low inventory in Big Canyon, they helped us search multiple communities, but our hearts led us back to Big Canyon. Lindsay and Natalie became aware of an opportunity before it went on the MLS and alerted us. The next day we viewed the home and made an offer that evening. Their knowledge, experience, and expertise helped guide us through the entire process. If we had questions or concerns, they addressed them quickly and professionally. If we were to make another move in the future (hopefully not!), we’d call them again. We highly recommend them.
ABDO AND MICHELE KHOURY, BUYERS IN BIG CANYON
Buying and selling a home in a competitive real estate market often presents unknown and unexpected challenges. Finding the team who possesses the experience, knowledge of the market and a respected reputation is paramount. Having the best possible representation requires having a team who is acutely sensitive to having your best interests at heart, who can navigate through complexities of a transaction, who is attentive, responsive, nimble and who can manage all aspects of the deal on your behalf. The Bibb | Raney team not only embodies these qualities but their integrity, professionalism and ethics are unparalleled and they exceeded every expectation we had.
DOUG AND SANDY KEEDY, BUYERS & SELLERS
Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney went above and beyond the role of representing us as buyers and sellers, jumped through unexpected hoops with thoughtful care, skill and sensibility and in addition managed our entire purchase and sale process and nuances with professionalism, acute sensitivity to timeframes and deadlines all with a smile on their faces, never hesitating to go the extra mile.
Their expertise and knowledge base is unsurpassed, and throughout every step of the way, their commitment to putting our best interests at the forefront exceeded every expectation we had.
Unequivocally, this team is behind compare, embodying integrity, unsurpassed professionalism, attention to detail and unparalleled follow through. Without hesitation, we can say that the Bibb/Raney team is purely and simply - Best in Class.
It’s truly a 24/7 job being an agent — and we had two of them with Lindsay and Natalie working on our behalf! Over the years they provided feedback on our ideas for updating the house as we expected “someday” we would be empty nesters and downsize. They always had their ears and eyes open for potential buyers and worked with us on just putting our toe in the water to test the market. If you have a special interest in Big Canyon (it is a special neighborhood!) than this team of agents are the best — they know the history of all homes here.
DENNIS AND SARAH DRISLANE, SELLER IN NEWPORT BEACH
The selling process can be drawn out and cumbersome but Natalie and Lindsay made it very easy as they are true professionals — and even after closing they still support you! We would definitely recommend them!
Our mother had passed away recently which necessitated the need to sell her home in Big Canyon. We sat down with Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney and found them to be extremely professional and very strategic in their approach to the market. We chose them on the spot knowing they also had terrific success selling properties in Big Canyon. This proved to be a great decision since a buyer was found within the first week and all our expectations were fulfilled. They have made the closing process as easy as possible. It has been a pleasure to work with Lindsay and Natalie. We would highly recommend them for any of your residential real estate needs.
DIANE OSBORN AND RICK GODBER, SELLERS IN BIG CANYON
Lindsay, Natalie, and Brad are the A-Team! I knew from their reputation that I wanted them to represent me, but they more than exceeded expectations. I was out of town and relied completely on their advice about listing and staging. Their personal attention gave me complete confidence that my Big Canyon home was in good hands. And it sold in days!!
NANCY ATLEE, SELLER IN BIG CANYON
When it was time to write my testimonial, I read through the others and found that we all sing the same praises for this exceptional team. Their knowledge of the buying/selling market, expertise in handling the nuances of the sale, and attentive communication and commitment all serve their clients in a professional, yet caring, manner.
It was a pleasure to work with them from start to finish. They are the Best.
WOW, we were totally stunned at how quickly you sold our Big Canyon home!
STEVE AND KIM BRUNO, SELLERS IN BIG CANYON
We knew how good you are as we had worked with you previously. However, you exceeded our expectations, as you seamlessly arranged staging, photography and copious advertising with little input from us. This was particularly important since we live out of state.
You communicated with us during every step of the process and had the house under contract in about a week. The closing was equally easy.
Thank you for your work on our behalf. Please know that we would happily recommend you to any prospective client.
Lindsay and Natalie are THE dream team! They are exceptionally knowledgeable about the real estate market, the business transactions involved and are very willing to help in any way, always with a smile. They were exceedingly patient with us as we made plans to downsize and we always felt they had our best interests at heart. Without a moment’s hesitation, we would highly recommend them.
DAVE AND PAT MIDDLEMAS, BUYERS & SELLERS IN BIG CANYON
I had listed a high-end house in Big Canyon that remained unsold after being listed for two years with another broker. I switched to Lindsay Bibb & Natalie Raney in the Summer of 2019 to try another approach. We took the house off the market, staged the house, and changed the price (to where it should have been listed before). We had an offer within 1 week of going on the market and sold the house at almost the asking price. I was out of town which could have made the process difficult. However, this duo oversaw and coordinated everything from an estate sale of many items that needed to go, to finding and facilitating the stager, to coordinating the showings, and then capably assisting in the negotiation and sale process. They were a pleasure to work with - excellent business approach with a smile! I recommend them highly and with no reservations!
BURT MCGILLIVRAY, SELLER IN BIG CANYON
Lindsay Bibb was an outstanding sales agent who guided us in all aspects of selling our home. She was professional, caring and proficient during all stages of our transaction. We found her market knowledge invaluable. We can recommend her without reservation.
KRISTY AND MARSHALL MANCILLAS, SELLER IN BIG CANYON
You two are the best... competent and caring! We felt we could trust your judgement every step of the way. Thank you for all you did for us.
JIM AND LYNNE SUTTER, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
I am delighted to provide a strong recommendation for Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney. My house had been on the market for two years with no offers when I decided to list it with this dynamic duo. I found that no one knew how to speak to the benefits of living in Big Canyon like Lindsay and Natalie. They were creative in how they relaunched my property to the market, and leveraged their extensive personal network to find the ideal buyer within a short few months. I felt confident that they were able to communicate to prospective buyers all of the wonderful attributes of my home that originally drew me to buy it. After receiving no offers over the past two years, I was ecstatic to receive multiple offers! When we negotiated with the final buyer, I felt that they put together a deal that was fair to all parties involved. I highly recommend Lindsay and Natalie to any buyer or seller in Big Canyon…and beyond!
LISA BHATHAL VOGEL, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Natalie Raney and Lindsay Bibb are the best of the best! They know their market better than anyone else, are highly competent, attentive to detail and work very hard to bring buyers and sellers together. They did a superior job for us when we wanted to sell our house and we highly recommend them to any future clients. They have earned a five-star rating with us. No one does it better!
RITA AND GARY WILDER, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
We are so grateful for our new family home and for Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney for making it possible. Lindsay and Natalie are both professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of their work. They provided the best real estate services in bringing together a deal for the purchase of our new home and selling our previous home in just two days, representing both sides of each transaction. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and look forward to many years to come in our new home!
MIKE AND BLAIR TRESKA, BUYER IN BIG CANYON & SELLER IN TURTLE RIDGE
My husband and I were considering buying a lot and building a new house and were curious as to our home’s marketability. We met with Lindsay and Natalie, and they offered excellent counsel. Concerned about the time imposition of showing our home and not wanting to have an open house on the week-ends, we agreed to a pocket listing for two prospects. They arranged to have the showings back-to-back on the same day, and the second party decided to buy. It worked out well, as the new owners could not live here for two years. It became an ideal situation: while building, we stay and lease. Sounds easy; but there were several external hindrances, and the transaction took a few months which had highs and lows, feeling like a roller-coaster ride. Fortunately, with Lindsay's and Natalie’s guidance, we accomplished our goals. Throughout the negotiations, escrow, and inspections, they were knowledgeable, responsive, articulate, caring, compassionate, and top-notch professionals. We consider them to be a dynamic duo: they make a superb team, and their individual skills are complimentary. We highly recommend them and would use their services again in a heartbeat.
ABDO & MICHELE KHOURY, SELLER IN BIG CANYON
We were very blessed to have Natalie and Lindsay as our real estate brokers. The way I would describe Natalie and Lindsay, is that they are people of integrity, professional, genuine, and they had our best interest at heart. I trust them, and I value their honest advice. I can't thank them enough for all their wisdom and hard work. Through all their persistence, they found a buyer, they negotiated for us, and now the house is closing! What a blessing! Thank you Natalie and Lindsay!
JENNY WALKER AND CLIFF JONES, SELLER IN BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
THE BEST...An extraordinary combination of professional experience, business acumen, and industry relationships, Lindsay and Natalie get the job done. Highest recommendation.
DANA TASCHNER, SELLER IN BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
It has been a pleasure to work with Natalie Raney, Lindsay Bibb and Villa Real Estate on the sale of our Big Canyon home. Natalie and Lindsay’s expert guidance and diligent work made the transaction work seamlessly. My wife and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Natalie and Lindsay’s services and expertise for the sale or procurement of your home. We look forward to working with Natalie and Lindsay again in the future.
DAMIAN AND AMANDA BURKE, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
I am delighted to share my experience working with Natalie and Lindsay, whom represented me in the sale of my Big Canyon home. Their stellar reputation as “the” brokers in BC preceded my initial meeting with them – and it was immediately clear to me why. Attentive, professional, knowledgeable and engaged are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe this Team. They recognized the value in my custom home and were not hesitant to think outside the box to realize a sales price commiserate with its quality. Once hired, they immediately got to work with staging, glossy brochures, high-end advertising, and even a sunset cocktail party to showcase my property!
WENDY MARCIANTE, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
As a long-distance seller, I cannot stress enough the value in their ongoing willingness to keep me informed, provide immediate buyer feedback and even meet contractors at my house. Everything Natalie and Lindsay did for me they did with a smile and great attitude. My home was under contract – at a great price – just weeks after listing. The closing was seamless and painless. I plan to purchase another home in the area and I wouldn’t think of using another broker. Natalie and Lindsay are simply the best.
Natalie and Lindsay were always extremely professional. They always were on time and delivered what they said. They handled all the logistics, including scheduling any repair people needed, which made the transaction smooth and without stress. I would highly recommend their services.
STEVE CRUSE, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Natalie and Lindsay were true professionals starting with their thorough market analysis. Upon listing my home, they took the time to obtain the specific information for all of the features that the home offered. Using this information as well as obtaining the services of a professional photographer allowed them to prepare a good visual with numerous details for potential buyers to consider. Their marketing and brochures were "over the top". I would definitely use them again and also refer them to others.
SHARRI MYERS, SELLER IN BIG CANYON
It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for Lindsay Bibb and the professional manner in which she handled the purchase of our new home and the selling of our old residence . From the start Lindsay was always there to help with anything and everything. Every detail was on schedule and every obstacle was met with great enthusiasm and was dealt with in a timely and professional manner.
BOB AND CRISTY CLEMO, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
I would give Lindsay our highest recommendation and encourage anyone and everyone to hire her for their respective real estate requirements.
Natalie is a dream to work with in navigating the fast-paced Newport Beach real estate market. I genuinely cannot imagine working with a more competent, pleasant professional. We will continue to be loyal clients for years to come.
ISABELLE ALESSANDRA, BUYER AND SELLER IN BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Truly a realtor extraordinaire! Lindsay spent 2 years looking & then finding the house of our dreams. She employed her extraordinary skills and knowledge of the real estate market to facilitate the purchase & eventual close. Her patience & people skills surmounted all challenges presented. We are so very grateful. Whether you are selling your home and / or purchasing a home Lindsay Bibb will be there 24/7 to answer all your questions and to represent your interests. We all strive for perfection. Lindsay Bibb epitomizes perfection in the real estate market.
DON AND PAM GILMOUR, BUYER IN BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Through Natalie my future dream home in Emerald Bay became a reality. She was able to show me properties that were coming on the market prior to being listed in the MLS.
EMELIE TIRRE, EMERALD BAY IN LAGUNA BEACH
Natalie has been a one stop shop of information and helpfulness above and beyond the expected normal realtor scope of knowledge. She has been with me every step of the process and then some–without her I would not have found architect or contractor.
Natalie's follow up and attention to detail were impeccable throughout process; she left no stone "unturned." Most importantly, it was clear that she was always my advocate and consistently had my best interests at heart. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell their home.
My husband and I had decided to sell our home of 35 years, the multi-level, multiple-roomed home that accommodated our family of four growing children so well. Having all children launched with homes and families of their own, we decided to purchase a new single level home with fewer rooms. Living in Newport Beach for 37 years, we knew that Bibb was the name for top real estate expertise. We had been friends with Danny over the years, and turned now to his daughter, Lindsay. We needed a broker to both sell our home and assist us in purchasing a new one. By reputation, we knew that Lindsay was the expert in Big Canyon. But we were not prepared for her high level of knowledge of all the relevant Newport Beach neighborhoods. Lindsay was an amazing agent. She had perfect working knowledge of the housing inventory and was delightful to work with. But she was so much more. Her level of her expertise, professionalism, intelligence and care was tops. My husband and I ended most evenings through this process exclaiming, "Wow, LIndsay is really on it.". She paid such close attention to detail, guided us through the buying process, and was instrumental in us closing on time. In selling our home, she has marketed our home very effectively and has worked diligently to show our home and keep it in front of potential buyers. For an intelligent, organized, top-of-the-filed broker, we recommend Lindsay.
JERRY AND LUCYANN, CARLTON BUYER AND SELLER
It was so nice working with Natalie. She helped me find the perfect home and I couldn't be happier. She made the process so simple and easy. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for their future home and I will definitely use her again.
BUYER, EMERALD BAY IN LAGUNA BEACH
If you want to sell your home, hire a professional. That’s why I hired Lindsay Bibb.
PETER NELSON, SELLER IN IRVINE TERRACE
When my mother recently passed away, I was responsible as the trustee of the estate to sell my parents home in Irvine Terrace. With the endless list of details needed to be dealt with in settling the estate; memorial service, sibling beneficiaries, disbursing all of the personal effects, and selling the home I grew up in over 50 years ago, I looked to a true professional that could take the selling burden off my hands. That’s why I hired Lindsay.
Lindsay not only sold the house in five days at my exact asking price but throughout the three week escrow handled every detail and the eleventh hour escrow issues flawlessly. In addition, Lindsay was a comfort to my soul and a source of peace for me while I dealt with selling my family’s home and closing this important chapter of my life. I highly recommend Lindsay Bibb for your real estate transactions, she’s a professional and truly learned the art of selling and buying homes from the best.
Having my Brokers' license for almost 40 yrs, I knew, when I decided to start house hunting in Newport Coast, I was going to be hard pressed to find a top notch Realtor who not only lived up to my extremely high standards, but had the personality that we wish all Realtors had.... ready to do whatever it takes to find the deal that meets our wish list and make it happen without being "pushy". Natalie not only listened to what I wanted, but when the perfect home became available, she tackled all of the difficult "stuff" most Buyers (including myself) dread dealing with and delivered it hassle free with Champagne on the table! She was SO refreshing! I would use Natalie again and again and be confident in recommending her to anyone deserving of a young, smart, enthusiastic, woman who was born and raised in the OC and knows her real estate stats like a surfer knows where the best waves are! Glad I found her! She is truly a star in her profession!
BUYER IN CRYSTAL COVE, CRYSTAL COVE IN NEWPORT COAST
Lindsay Bibb is wonderful! She was great every step of the way in the process of selling our Bayshores home and buying in Big Canyon. Not only is she very knowledgeable and professional, she is also so warm and caring. Lindsay handled any obstacles and challenges that arose efficiently and cheerfully, which helped to make the process of buying and selling a pleasure instead of a chore. We were constantly amazed and comforted by her expertise and her uplifting, delightful personality. We always felt like we were Lindsay's top priority. We are happy to recommend Lindsay for any and all real estate needs!
CRANE AND SUSAN PATTEN, SELLER IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay Bibb was our first and only choice to provide the professional services and in-depth real estate knowledge to sell our home in Big Canyon. From start to finish Lindsay’s services were stellar. In addition to promptly answering numerous questions and perspectives during the escrow process, Lindsay did a magnificent job working with the buyer and their realtor. We realized how important Lindsay’s liaison efforts meant towards establishing a cordial and on time closing.
GARRY AND SUSAN BROOKS, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay was accountable and amenable to meet at any time and directed us to a very professional escrow company and numerous other contracted services within the scope of the sales process. Susan and I highly recommend Lindsay’s services when considering buying or selling a residence. We respected Lindsay’s objectivity and guidance.
Should we be called upon; we would be happy to speak directly to a potential client of Lindsay’s on our total experience.
Having been a Commercial Real Estate Broker for many years in my previous career, I know the nuances between good and excellent representation. I can clearly state that Natalie’s professionalism, understanding of the market, negotiating skills, and positive “get the job done” attitude were sincerely appreciated and respected. Natalie exceeded excellence in every aspect of the transaction.
PHILIP DODGE, NEWPORT HEIGHTS IN NEWPORT BEACH
We just closed escrow on a house in Big Canyon and cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Lindsay Bibb. We had been looking for the perfect lot for several years and Lindsay has always been so patient, professional and fun to work with. She has so much knowledge and expertise in her field as well as the Big Canyon community. We also used Lindsay to secure in renters in our home until we are ready to move in. She had our best interest in mind the whole time to make sure that we had reliable and amicable renters. It has been a true privilege to work with Lindsay!
GREG AND ELLEN SOLAAS, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
After the passing of our parents, my family and I spoke with several brokers regarding the listing of our family home. Without a doubt, Lindsay was the most sincere of people we met. I found her to be honest and direct; characteristics that were extremely important to us.
ANDREA GREENLEAF, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
We chose Lindsay to list the home and she was nothing but professional throughout the process. She ran beautiful ads in all of the appropriate magazines, newspapers and online publications, held several open houses and kept us informed at all times. Lindsay provided us with ad copies, updates on interested buyers' input, and handled the sale, escrow and closing with the same dedication that she displayed at our first meeting.
I would not only give Lindsay the highest recommendation, but would also not hesitate to use her for any future listing we may have.
I would highly recommend Natalie for any of your real estate needs. She is hard working, professional and gets the job done.
JOHN T., DOVER SHORES IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay Bibb has represented our family for two very important real estate transactions. The first was in 2013 when we decided to sell our Big Canyon custom built home of fourteen years and move to Maui. Lindsay sold the home within one week for approximately 98% of our asking price and closed escrow within 30 days. The second was our desire to return to Newport Beach in 2015. At that time, available homes for sale were few that met our needs, but Lindsay stayed very close to the new listings and found a great home for us to purchase.
KEN AND ROBIN COLBAUGH, BUYER AND SELLER
Complementing her ability to sell client homes or find new ones to buy, she is exceptional at ensuring all the documentation is accurate and completed in a timely manner. Lindsay possesses excellent negotiation skills and has well-refined instincts when it comes to working through issues leading to successfully closing transactions.
If Lindsay has one fault it might be she works too hard and makes herself available to her clients seven days per week and often after normal working hours.
We are delighted to provide Lindsay with our unconditional recommendation.
My experience with Natalie on multiple real estate transactions could be summed with a few words: Polite; Professional; Proficient; Profitable. A joy to do business with!
ROD MACDONALD, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
We knew we wanted to buy an investment property but we didn't know where. We gave Lindsay a price range and she took care of the rest. She showed us properties in Big Canyon, CdM, Newport Coast, Eastbluff, the Port streets, the Yacht streets, and some streets we didn't even know were streets. Amazingly, she knew the in's and out's of every neighborhood, what the rental market was like, and which properties were likely to yield the best return on our investment short term and long term. Thanks to her scrupulous efforts, we found a great property in One Ford Road complete with a tenant already in place. The key to real estate isn't location, location, location. It's Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay.
STEVE AND ELIZABETH RABOSKY, ONE FORD ROAD IN NEWPORT BEACH
It has been a pleasure working with Natalie Raney and I look forward to working with her again. I could not have asked for a better agent. The whole process was seamless from the search to the purchase. After narrowing down our perfect location, Natalie found us the best listing. We could not be happier. Not only do we have the best location, we ended up with a great price and ultimately a great investment. Everything we were looking for. I’d like to thank Natalie for helping us through this journey and highly recommend Natalie to help you through yours.
JILLIAN BEDROSIAN, BUYER IN CORONA DEL MAR
I would recommend Lindsay Bibb to my friends, family or anyone who is looking for a real estate agent to handle their buying or selling needs.
STEPHANIE GRODY, SELLER IN BIG CANYON AND BUYER IN CORONA DEL MAR
Lindsay has represented my husband and me on the sale of our home and the subsequent purchase of our next home. Neither side of the transaction was easy. Lindsay remained calm, in control and focused on representing us and attaining our goals throughout both transactions.
Lindsay is a perfectionist with processing the details of both the buyers and seller’s contract agreements. She is equally efficient at staying on top of the escrow process and making sure all documents are signed and delivered on time by both the buyer and seller. That is a luxury both Ken and I learned to rely on.
Lindsay listens to what you say and knows how to ask the right questions to help you accurately define your real estate goals. She is 100% committed to achieving those goals for you. She always answers the phone and goes out of her way to be available when you need her.
My husband and I are in automotive sales, and are passionate about service and the sales experience. We train our sales professionals to be experts in product knowledge, to listen to the customers needs. They are committed to providing the best service and customer experience for the buyer, not just at the time of the purchase, but throughout the life of ownership.
Lindsay demonstrates all those attributes as a real estate professional, and that is why we work with her and would enthusiastically refer her for buying or selling a home.
Natalie has been able to help expertly guide us through five real estate transactions this year and we are absolutely delighted with the results she has produced."
ISABELLE ALESSANDRA AND DREW HADRA, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay Bibb represented us as both a buyer and as a seller in the past year. In both cases, she was a dual agent, but was always fair and equitable and always professional to both parties. She made selling our house easy, handling termite inspections, home inspections, etc. We don't plan to move again but if we did, Lindsay would be our first call!
STEVE AND JANE TUCCI, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Natalie has successfully guided us through several real estate transactions, and always with complete professionalism. She is consistently responsive, detail oriented, and one step ahead of the process. She took the time to understand our interests and goals, and patiently showed us multiple properties, always with a smile. We would highly recommend her!
HEATHER AND MICHELLE FLORIANI, BUYER AND SELLER IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay represented us as buyers in Big Canyon two years ago. She did an excellent job in executing the purchase and keeping us up to date with all the paperwork. She handled the entire process seamlessly and professionally. She recently represented us in the sale of our home in Laguna Beach. Again, everything was handled without a hitch.
DENNIS AND JANET SHANNON, BUYER AND SELLER
She is extremely professional and will do her very best to consummate a deal with the highest integrity, as has been the history of the Bibb family for over 30 years.
Recently, my husband and I had the privilege of working with Natalie Raney on the sale of a special property in Newport Beach. As representatives for the seller, of course our client’s well-being, care and top-notch service was of utmost importance to us. We wanted to work with a real estate professional who would not only stand up to our tough standards, but who would go above and beyond in pursuit of excellence. We found this quality in Natalie and so much more. She could not have been more attentive, measured and professional. From accurately and honestly evaluating the property’s potential to staging, marketing and advertising choices, Natalie was able to handle our international transaction with impeccable attention to detail. Natalie was optimistic, realistic and most importantly, in constant communication with updates. In short, we would not only work with Natalie again, but would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an exceptional real estate pro who possesses the highest moral and ethical standards.
SELLER IN NEWPORT BEACH
I cannot overstate how important Lindsay & Danny Bibb have been to our family by serving 3 generations’ real estate needs the past 27 years. In every transaction, (our home in Big Canyon, a beach house in Laguna, a home for our parents, our son’s first house) , the Bibbs ALWAYS put our interest above their own. Extremely knowledgeable, widely respected & VERY nice people.
BOB AND SHERI BEST, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay was our guiding light! We were living in Emerald Bay and enjoying the Big Canyon Country Club frequently when it finally dawned on us that we should stop listening to our friends rave about the neighborhood and convenient lifestyle and finally join them. After knowing Lindsay's family for years, we asked her to help us find our new home. We knew nothing about prices or values in Big Canyon but after a few short minutes with her extraordinary knowledge, we felt like experts. She truly listened to our needs and found us the perfect house. Lindsay held our hand the entire time and made what can be a stressful time, very simple and easy. Her negotiating skills and attention to detail are impeccable. Simply put… She truly is the best!
GEORGE AND KATIE TUERK, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
We have had the pleasure of knowing the Bibb family socially and professionally over the last 30 years. They are a wonderful family and very respected in the community. Recently, we had the good fortune to work closely with Lindsay Bibb, as she represented us in a home purchase. Lindsay was extremely professional and very attentive to the details and documentation, but then of course, she has learned from the best, Danny! Anyone working with Danny or Lindsay will definitely be in good hands, and can rest assured that they are working with the best in the industry.
ALICIA AND VANCE MAPE, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
We want to thank you for the stellar job you did in leasing our former home in Newport Beach. All facets of the process, from preparing the house for presentation, marketing, showings, vetting prospects, negotiating lease terms and consummating the lease were done professionally, expeditiously and courteously. It is no wonder that you are well regarded and successful in your chosen career. Feel free to use us as a referral anytime. Kudos to you and your staff and keep up the good work.
PAUL AND NANCY BEST, LESSOR IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay and I have known each other for over thirty years. She knows the Newport Beach market, and I couldn't trust anyone more for my private residence here. Lindsay has helped me find 2 fantastic homes in Newport. She understands people and how to get them what they really want. Lindsay is disciplined, professional, and accessible. I highly recommend Lindsay Bibb.
CONNOR BEST, NEWPORT BEACH
Thank you for all your expertise and all you have done to turn a very stressful situation for us into a positive one. You have to be both a realtor and psychologist. You are excellent at both.
PAUL AND BARBARA JOHNSON, SOLD IN BIG CANYON & PURCHASED IN NEWPORT BEACH
I cannot say enough great things about Lindsay Bibb. She has been my family’s realtor for years and found us several great properties. She knows the area better than anyone and can very easily identify what you are looking for and can easily suggest great neighborhoods that you hadn’t thought of. I had an idea of where I wanted to live, area wise, but Lindsay found the perfect home I was looking for without me knowing exactly what I was looking for. She is a great agent, who is professional, informative, knowledgeable and any other adjective you are looking for in a broker. Use Lindsay Bibb as your agent and you WILL find your dream house!
RYAN BEST, BUYER IN EASTSIDE COSTA MESA
Our family has known Lindsay for many years. We began working with Lindsay to locate a property in 2015. Her work ethic and eye for location and value is exceptional and resulted in our first home purchase this past month. In the future, we would use Lindsay’s expertise again and not hesitate to recommend her to friend or family alike. If you are interested in buying a first home, or next home, I recommend looking no further than Lindsay Bibb. She is the best!

When my wife and I started looking at houses in Newport Beach, we were referred to Lindsay by a good friend who spoke highly of her abilities. After meeting with her, we quickly realized she was an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly broker who we were glad to have on our side. She was extremely patient as we went to countless open houses in the search for our dream home. She provided expert knowledge of the various neighborhoods as well as current market pricing. Once we had an accepted offer on our house, she negotiated with the seller so that we had an extremely favorable closing, which was even more impressive considering we bought in a sellers market. We highly recommend Lindsay to anyone buying or selling a home, and we look forward to working with her in the future for all of our real estate needs!
PETER AND DANIELLE ENGLER, BUYER IN NEWPORT BEACH
Lindsay represented me as a buyer of my first home and made what I thought to be a difficult and frustrating process quite the opposite: transparent and seamless. She is so knowledgeable and gets back to you on every question with a detailed answer. She was not only incredibly helpful, caring and excited for me, she made sure with every paper I signed, I understood any outcome or implication. Lindsay works so hard for her clients and it truly shows. She is an absolutely fantastic realtor and I will definitely be working with her again in the future.
KELLY SHANNON, BUYER IN COSTA MESA
Cannot recommend Lindsay and Natalie enough. Honest, frank, and uncommonly market savvy. If you want a team that puts their clients interest first, even if at their own expense, communicate well, and won’t waste your time with uninformed hyperbole as well as inappropriate upsells – Lindsay & Natalie are most certainly your choice. A complimentary balance of client care and willingness to go to the table kindly but firmly when and as needed to bring reasonable resolutions that benefit everyone involved, they and their supporting staff will provide the tangible value most promise and few deliver.

I am a retired architect and would like to write this letter about Natalie Raney and the amazing and classy way that she conducts her professional duties and helps her clients.
KATHARINE TEHRANIAN, SELLER IN NEWPORT COAST
In the Spring of 2016, I hired Natalie as a realtor to help me with the sale of my home in Newport Coast, California. Throughout the months that followed, Natalie's professional integrity, intelligence, efficiency, gracefulness and helpfulness impressed me tremendously.
Through ups and downs of the sale process, Natalie's optimism and intelligent approach to problem solving was a source of strength for me and helped me to travel the process smoothly.
I can simply state that Natalie is superb in performing her professional duties, is as efficient as possible, is helpful beyond the call of duty and is kind, personable and easy to work with. I recommend Natalie with highest enthusiasm and send her my best wishes for a brilliant professional future.
It was a true pleasure to work with Lindsay Bibb regarding the sale of our condominium located on the golf course in Big Canyon Villas. We decided that it was time to sell the property and no longer deal with tenants. In knowing what a wonderful reputation Lindsay has developed over the years within the Big Canyon Community itself we felt she was our obvious choice to assist us in the sale. We mutually agreed upon what the asking price should be and she preceded to put together an excellent marketing package and we received an offer within ten days and were able to close escrow within a total of six weeks of the date it was placed on the market. Lindsay did a wonderful job working through the many details and was there for us at all times. Thank you Lindsay!!
SELLER IN BIG CANYON VILLAS
When it came time to rent out our Big Canyon home, we knew right away who we would choose. Having lived in Big Canyon for many years, we always knew Lindsay and Natalie were well regarded in the community and had a deep understanding of what it meant to live in Big Canyon. Now that we have had an opportunity to work with them, we cannot recommend them enough. Lindsay and Natalie, and the rest of their team, were always available and kept us up-to-date through every step of the process. In the end, we are very satisfied with the quality of Lindsay and Natalie's work and look forward to working with them in the future.

Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney epitomize the meaning of the “dynamic duo”. They truly are the REAL DEAL!
JULIE O’GRADY, BIG CANYON IN NEWPORT BEACH
My family will be forever grateful to Natalie and Lindsay. They were kind, caring and not pushy when we needed it; yet strong and pragmatic when we were indecisive. They have balance in an industry where there is very little balance and where emotions can run high and get the best of people.
Our mother’s home sold quickly. Albeit it was in a great neighborhood. It was in original condition (needed a total remodel). Natalie and Lindsay had to deal with 4 siblings on this deal. Not an easy feat! My siblings and I did everything Lindsay and Natalie suggested. We actually listened to the professionals and it paid off. We received multiple offers. Natalie and Lindsay explained the pros and cons of each offer (FYI it’s not always about the highest offer). We were able to make the correct decision which turned out to be absolutely painless.
They will always have my business and I will always recommend LINDSAY BIBB and NATALIE RANEY to everyone.
Love you two!!!!
Natalie Raney is an extremely knowledgeable realtor whose expertise in Newport’s diverse neighborhoods is amazing. Her professionalism and honesty make the home buying process easy and straightforward. She doesn’t just find you any house, she find you your perfect home! We look forward to working with Natalie for all our future real estate needs.
