Linda from Barbara McLain Properties is awesome – To Whom It May Concern,

I am a client of Barbara McLain Properties, and have been now for five years. The first year, Linda Ahn was not my rental agent. Things were pretty choppy.

The subsequent four years, however, with Linda at the helm, everything has run perfectly. I mean without a glitch. This may not seem like it's saying much but you must understand what kind of client I am: the worst. I change my mind every twenty seconds. I have a commitment problem. I am loud and obnoxious. I am late for everything. I forget stuff I am supposed to remember: appointments, codes, and even material things like keys. In short, I am a rental agent's nightmare.

If they have caller ID at Barbara McLain Properties, I am certain every agent goes running for the bathroom or the water cooler when they see it's me calling.

Not Linda Ahn. This woman has endured more hassles than I could possibly recount. Over the past four years I have dumped barrels full of marbles in her path, and she dances over them gracefully.

One year I switched properties three times in the three months leading up to the rental. Another year I forgot how much we paid three different times. before, during, and after the rental, and each time Linda got right back to me...again and without seeming annoyed. Last year I tortured Linda with regards to the cleaning fee and possible alternatives, an exchange which required three emails and four phone calls. Of course Linda was correct from the start, but she calmly and patiently went over things with me again and again until I finally understood. This year, I am actually too embarrassed to even reveal what I have done...but I have now done it FIVE times.

Linda replies to her emails within three hours, and usually within 30 minutes. She is as detailed as she needs to be with her answers, but never moreso. She understands that people's time is precious and won't ever waste it. She also seems to understand that "Pobody's Nerfect." Linda has never made me feel bad or guilty for any of my shortcomings. She is never passive-aggressive and ...even though I know that deep inside she must be... she never sounds annoyed or put off by my requests or objections.

I plan on not only working with Linda Ahn myself for the next several decades but have also recommended her to all my friends looking for superior rental agent service in the area.

Good Job Linda Ahn! – We have rented vacation rental homes on a longer term (4 mos) basis for the last 2 years through Barbara McLain Properties. Linda Ahn is the rep that helps us and she has consistently represented the company with great enthusiasm. We have many criteria for Linda to contend with, including a 70lb dog and privacy and space needs, and proximity to the beach within our price range. Linda has done a fantastic job for us each year. She is quick to respond to any questions we might have both before and after we arrive. And is happy to work with us via phone or email depending on our needs at any given time. We make arrangements with her from out of state and Linda takes over making our transition here easy. We appreciate her immensely. And we like that the office is conveniently located. Linda Ahn is a serious asset to Barbara McLain Properties.

Personal Service Avoids Problems – Barbara McLain Properties has been our residential property manager for 4 years as we travel around the USA in our RV. They came highly recommended by friends with years of experience.

When you are not around to take care of the details you worry they will not be done. That has never been a problem. Tammy Costa has always been responsive to my requests and ahead of me by identifying potential problems.

Now I can say 'Highly recommended'.

Professional with a personal touch – As an owner, I have used Barbara McLain Properties for several years. I have been very pleased with their service. Not only are they very professional, but they always try to add a personal touch such as sending a yearly Chrismas card with a signature from the whole staff. If something needs to be fixed, they get right on it. I would recommend them to owners and renters alike.

BARBARA MCLAIN PROPERTIES – We have used Linda Ahn at Barbara McLain Properties for the last two years. The first year, the property we had chosen for the following fall was sold during the summer so we had to chose another property. Linda was very helpful in giving us a number of suitable options and we ended up in another unit that was very satisfactory. We used LInda again to find us a property for next year. She was very helpful showing us through a number of properties. We would definitely use LInda again for another rental.

Barbara McLain Prop- Excellent Service. Local Knowledge – When looking for a Property Manager for my house in Carlsbad I chose Barbara McLain Properties due to their fantastic word of mouth reviews. It has been 5 years and they have never let me down? Besides being an owner I have also used them to find rentals for me when my property is occupied. Linda Ahn and Lisa Fore have always come through.

They contuinue to work with me in order to get families into my rental house by offering their knowledge of the local market whether it be added ammenities that my house needed for renters or fair market pricing to make it a win/win for both me and the potential renters. Frankly, they are the best! If you are looking to rent or are an owner that needs a property management co. these are the folks you want to work with!

Barbara Mclain Properties/Linda Ahn-Terrific Resource – We've been vacationing in Oceanside every year for nearly 30 years. Our experience was somewhat ambivelent until we found Barbara Mclain about 10 years ago. Its an understatement to say they are fabulous! Courteous, resourceful, responsive and professional! Anyone who finds them wanting clearly has their own emotional/mental problems! Honestly, I can't possibly see how they can be any better! Linda represents them and me well!
