Miss Tracy is truly a wonderful Real Estate Agent. She helped me to purchase my first house in Huntington Beach, Ca. I got a great price in a great location. She is very prompt and comprehensive of your requirements. She'll get you what you want even if it takes her to climb some fences to get there. I also enjoyed being around her because she is witty, funny and enjoyable to be around. She is also very knowledgeable on properties. If she see something that doesn't look right she will let you know. I've been looking for a couple of years and had allot of agents before (10) and I can say one thing about her. She was the best out of 10.Joe Simsic
"As I found myself drowning with the economy, I needed to make a decision with my condo. I could no longer manage the mortgage so I decided to contact someone who understood the process of Listing a short sale. Enter Miss Tracy!!! She was wonderful explaining the process to me and assured that she could get my condo SOLD. I signed the contract with her that day and the process began. The short sale was stressful but well worth it. Miss Tracy was always there to put out my stressful thoughts and worries. She would answer all of my concerns and have solutions for bumps that came along. Tracy worked well with the banks and other agents to complete out short sale in a timely matter. I can now breath and live my life a little better knowing that I made the right decision with TRACY!"Perla Magin
Working with Tracy was the best experience I could have ever hoped for. In the past eight months I had purchased not only my first but second home with Tracy. My story may be different than most, thankfully with Tracy's "never give up" personality getting me over the constant barrage of hurtles being thrown at me due to all the new and totally ridiculous laws and regulations there are now I would have given up and missed out on what I have now. To start I tried working with other realtors that pushed me aside due to the fact that I could not purchase a home priced high enough to give them that fat commission check and was treated like I was wasting their time. Then through a friend of mine I was introduced to Tracy and we hit it off like old friends, she made me feel comfortable and just as important as someone with deep pockets. After looking at condos all over Orange County I finally settled on a condo in Laguna Niguel. As nervous as I was preparing to drop six figures on my first home that I will making payments on for the next thirty years Tracy did an amazing job at keeping me calm and focused explaining every part of the home buying process as we moved forward. Finally after all the meeting and greeting with all those involved and all the paper work was finally signed Tracy very happily handed me the keys to my first home. After living in my new home for about six month and trying everything to make it feel like home it wasn't happening for me due to some personal reasons. So I called Tracy and explained to her the situation and asked her to put my condo back on the market and start looking again for another place. Not long after my condo was relisted I heard from a friend who lives in the same complex that I lived in for thirteen years prior to me buying my condo in Laguna and told me she was going into foreclosure. This condo that my friend was about to lose I have always loved and wanted as long as I could remember, so with the opportunity of a lifetime and a seemingly impossible task ahead I asked Tracy if we could do a short sale on my friends condo while trying to sell mine and have it all work out at the same time ....I tried not to get too excited because I was told by everyone I know that I shared this idea with that they have never heard of something like this working out because of the different timelines involved with each process and what I was asking Tracy to do was basically impossible ....But I knew Tracy never gives up and always gets what she wants and if anyone could do it I knew she could. Not surprised by her answer Tracy assured me that it was something she could handle for me. My condo was already on the market and Tracy got the ball rolling for the short sale on my friends condo and negotiating with the bank who was about to lose big money with a foreclosure. I thought buying the first house was nerve racking but selling one and buying another and having them close at about the same time put my stomach in a hell of a knot. Once again Tracy continued assuring me not to worry she was taking care of it. With countless looky loos and several canceled offers I seriously thought I was never going to sell my condo in time to even have a chance to accept the banks counter offer on my friend's short sale. Just like before Tracy never quit, she found a buyer for my first condo, accepted the banks very generous counter offer on my friends condo and closed escrow on both 15 days apart from each other. I am now living in a condo that I have always wanted and I can happily call home for many years and it is all due to the non-stop effort of my amazing agent and now close friend Miss Tracy. I will always know that Tracy is the reason I can walk through my door every night and say "IM HOME" Working with Tracy will be the smartest decision a first, second, or hundredth time buyer or seller could ever make......Eric Vaccaro
When we first started thinking about buying our first home we didn’t know where to start. We had been living in "City Lights" apartments and when we learned we were expecting our first child we decided that it was a good time to try to find a home. One morning we saw a flier on our apartment door with information about a real estate agent. We had received many of these before but something about this one stood out. We contacted Tracy and she responded immediately. She was very personable and easy to talk to. We told her that we were not ready to buy at that moment but that we would be in 3-4 months after our baby was born. Sure enough, she initiated contact with us at that time and the process began. She took us to look at multiple properties to get a feel for what we were looking for. After this she was able to narrow our search so that every property was within our price range and our needs. She was in communication with us every step of the way and was extremely understanding to our needs and desires. We drove from Oceanside and all over Orange County looking at properties. She would call us as soon as a property was on the market so we could go see it immediately. When we found the home we really wanted she went out of her way and wrote a personal letter about our family to present it to the sellers. There is no doubt that it was because of her willingness to get to know us on a personal level that she was able to convey who WE were to the sellers. Because of this and her constant going out of her way for us we got the property, despite their being multiple other offers. Throughout the process we recommended her to another family who was going through a nightmare with their realtor and they ended up loving her as well. She made what could have been a very stressful situation a seamless one. There is no doubt that we would recommend her to anyone as well as use her in our future when needed. It was a pleasure working and getting to know Tracy!George & Rebekah Torres
I can’t say thank you enough for all that you did for Jeanette and I in buying our first home! We went through three other realtors who wasted our time taking us to places that we had clearly expressed we did not wish to see, and then we met you. Never once did you take us to a house where my wife and I felt that our time was wasted. Each home was one that was right up our aisle and required us to look at them multiple times in order to make a decision.
Your involvement in the whole process was so great, you always made yourself available to my wife and I for those evening visits to look at homes, and answering our frantic, panicky calls in the evening. As first time home shoppers/buyers, this was far and away the crowing jewel. Every question we had, you had the answer or were connected to someone who had the answer.
Your honestly and integrity outmatched any other realtors we had met with and while most of them would try to push the sale, you were always reading our reactions to homes and adjusting course to ensure that the next home you had line dup for us, was an even better fit and we never felt guilty for not moving forward with a home.
We also can’t thank you enough for saving us $1,600 on the termite repair that had to take place on the home. With the selling bank only offering to cover $2,000 of a $3,600 repair bill, you had the connections and relationships to have the repairs done for only $2,000. It was a job VERY well done by the repair company and my new neighbor has already asked for the name of the company so they can look at his place. My wife and I couldn’t be happier in our new home and we are secure in the fact that we are in the right place to begin the next chapter of our life. We look forward to having our first child in this home and knowing they are in a safe area, with friendly people around is priceless. In 10 or 15 years when the demands of a growing family require our next move, you will be our first call! I will continue to refer all my friends, family and clients to you.
~Thank you again for all your hard work, patience and expertise; Jeanette and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.Sean & Jeanette Blenkle
I first moved to Southern California in 2007 to start a new career. I ended up finding an apartment at City Lights and it was obvious that renting was a no brainer at that point for me. But as my career developed, I found myself in a situation where owning would have benefited more than renting. As chance had it, I got Tracy's letter in the mail just as I was starting my home buying search. I gave her a call and realized she was very informative and straight forward, so I gave her a chance and she did not disappoint!
I explained to her what kind of home I was looking for, in what neighborhoods, and obviously what kind of mortgage payment I would be comfortable paying each month and Tracy did the rest. She even recommended a few FHA lenders for first time buyers such as myself. As soon as something new popped up, Tracy was on it and we were there viewing the place. Although a couple of promising offers that we had did not go through, Tracy did not give up hope. She eventually found a regular sale that was perfect for me, and we eventually worked out an offer. Even then she didn't slack off and saw the process to the end. She ensured that closing went smoothly and most importantly on time!
Thank you Tracy. You made my first time home buying experience quite enjoyable.Check Kam
We want to thank you so much for all your help in finding the right home for our family. As you know, after years of saving money we were finally ready to take the big step and buy a house, but unfortunately we were connected to a Realtor who did not seem to care about our situation. It was disheartening at a time when we were supposed to be excited to embark on the journey as home buyers. Thankfully, you were referred to us and WOW! What a difference! We then realized what a great Realtor is all about! You listened to us and gave us realistic options for our family. Your experience is so valuable especially since we were getting a VA loan and our time was not wasted on viewing properties that would not qualify for this loan in the first place. You worked so hard behind the scenes to get us into our beautiful home and it did not go unnoticed. You are so efficient, caring, dependable, punctual and a great resource. We will always look back at our experience buying our first home and smile because you were there for us. Thank you!Eric and Vanessa Madrigal
We just wanted to thank you for helping us find our very first home. Your expertise in our FHA loan was superb. We really appreciate the fact that you took the time to show us all the places we wanted to look at without rushing our big decision. When you found the perfect place for us, we were thrilled! Although we faced some difficult challenges during the process you really stepped in as the expert you are, and made it all work out perfectly! I have already recommended you to my friends and family members and will continue to do so. Thanks again and we hope to keep in touch! If ever you need a reference please feel free to use us.

Dear Tracy, I am writing you this letter today to thank you for all of your help in assisting my Fiancé and I with our recent home purchase here in Aliso Viejo California. Over the course of 2009 we had attempted to acquire a property in what most would consider a volatile and uncertain market. Having moved to Southern California in 2007, we opted to rent rather than purchase a new home while the economy continued to settle. With home prices at an all time low, we felt that 2009 would be the best year for us to pursue our aspirations of home ownership in this area. Having received your informative and insightful real estate review packet mailed to us in "City Lights", we decided to enlist your services, making you our realtor for our upcoming search. Your professionalism combined with an intimate knowledge of real estate here in Orange County, played a pivotal role in you consistently matching our preferences with homes available in this area. In a challenging market filled with short-sales and REO properties, the knowledge and expertise you lent to the process, provided both my fiancé and I continued reassurance that we were in “good hands.” Knowing that we could count on you to represent our best interests at all times, afforded us a greater piece of mind when sometimes removed from the transactional / negotiation processes. Needless to say, your honesty, integrity and overall commitment, helped us in finding and securing a wonderful property in an amazing area. We can’t thank you enough for the countless hours spent on our behalf, researching, reviewing, and identifying potential properties for us to view. In the end, it was your persistence and perseverance that helped make our dreams of buying a home reality. As a result of our experience we would unequivocally recommend you and Altera Real Estate to any potential home buyers looking for world-class representation. Without you, we wouldn’t have found the home of our dreams.Alex Badal & Maedi Bartolacci
“We have had the pleasure of working with Tracy in 3 separate real estate transactions, 2 Listings and a 1 Purchase. During each one, we could ALWAYS trust her knowledge, experience, and dependability. She was consistent in answering all of our questions in a timely manner and provided us with more information than we asked. When it came time to meet, she was punctual, prepared and made every effort to understand what we were looking for rather than pushing a property that would advantage her. She provided options, suggestions, and creative ways for us to get into the property we wanted. When we went on home visits with Tracy, she would go above and beyond what we expected and provided professional service that made us feel not only taken care of, but very special. During one transaction in particular, it was pouring down rain for two days and Tracy took us to 45 homes with umbrella in hand! This should give you some idea about her commitment, dependability, and loyalty to clients. Finally, Tracy is the real deal! She is personable, caring, exceptional in her capacity to understand her customers, and works tirelessly. We highly recommend her and vouch for her services. Should we need another real estate transaction, we plan on using her again!"Frank & Janet Berry
