We retained Ultimate in 2011 for sales and marketing of our Belle Cliff community in San Juan Capistrano. Belle Cliff consists of million dollar luxury homes. UNHS provided brokerage services, a sales counselor, and marketing input which has led to the very successful sell-out of Belle Cliff.

Kristinna Sellers represents UNHS Management and has proven to be a persevering individual, with a high level of focus and considerable sales management talent. Kristinna has great resourcefulness, analytical analysis, selling and marketing skills.
Ultimate’s noteworthy accomplishments for Belle Cliff:
• Selection of our lead sales counselor, Steve Merryman, who has been
incredible and a perfect match for Belle Cliff’s buyer profile:
• Creative marketing campaigns and effective outreach programs:
• Timely and accurate market research;
• Complete, accurate and timely sales reporting;
• Oversight of the sales and marketing activities of our new home sales program;
and
• Location/view premium and base price analysis leading to incremental price increases with each phase of construction.

Overall, Ultimate New Home Sales is a great organization and Kristinna Sellers is very special person; they have made an incredible contribution to Harmony Homes.
I highly recommend UNHS.

— Steve Kabel, President, Harmony Homes

We made the decision to hire Ultimate New Home Sales and Marketing after meeting with them and seeing the extent of the research they provided. We were immediately sold on their professionalism and knowledge of the Redlands market. The project has been sitting for almost 2 years and one half of the standing inventory homes faced a very busy street in Redlands. From the moment Debbie Farrell arrived onsite she began to work her magic. She demonstrated the models to every visitor and because she knew the homes inside and out, she sold out and closed Phase 1 in record time. The assistance we received from Liz Grisamore was invaluable. She knew everything the lenders would require and completed all the necessary documentation for us prior to closings. Because of her attention to detail we relied on her to handle all on-site issues and never questioned her decisions. Without doubt we would recommend Ultimate New Home Sales and Marketing, Inc. to any builder that is looking for the best team.

— David S. Wood, Partner, Stratus Development Partners, LLC

The RC Hobbs Company would like to commend Kimberley Membiela and Ultimate New Home Sales on their continued professionalism, work ethic, and expertise in new home sales and marketing. Ultimate was hired in 2009; sales throughout much of Southern California had remained stagnant and there were no signs of activity. Once we brought on Ultimate we immediately went to four closings per month. We proudly recommend Ultimate and look forward to working with them on future projects.

— Robert Hobbs, Vice President, RC Hobbs Company

During this down turn in the new home marketplace, the sales at Puerta Del Sol have constantly outpaced the remainder of the Los Angeles marketplace, making Puerta Del Sol the fastest selling new home community is Los Angeles on a consistent basis. A great deal of this success is attributable to Ultimate New Home Sales and Marketing. Ultimate has provided us top flight highly trained sales people. They know how to sell value and are closers not order takers. Ultimate’s management team is truly committed to our business. They know every detail of every sale, are proactive in maintaining high customer satisfaction and referral rates. At the same time, our homes always close when promised. At the end of the day, the peace of mind we receive from Ultimate, as well as the increased sales and closings makes them a bargain.

— Percy Vaz, President, Amcal Homes, Inc.

San Diego National Bank is pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Ultimate New Home Sales and Marketing, Inc. We hired Ultimate in January 2008; we made the decision due to their extensive
knowledge of the market place and the research they provided. Ultimate provided us a wonderful sales agent, Sherry Sanders. Sherry took “ownership” of the community and her enthusiasm for demonstrating the models and home sites combined with her ability to “close” provided us the success we hoped to achieve. Even with numerous foreclosures and declining prices Ultimate continued to sell our community at the top of the pricing scale and maintained a very good absorption rate, as compared to the competitors. Thanks to the entire Ultimate team for your hard work and dedication. It is clear that your corporate commitment to training has directly contributed to your team’s success.

— Thomas Z. Meggas, Vice President, San Diego National Bank

Everybody at Ultimate always showed the utmost in professionalism and always had a terrific and positive attitude. I have always felt that the culture of any organization starts at the top, and your management leadership is definitely reflected in the attitudes of all the members of the organization. Also, the knowledge and experience of the team provide such a tremendous service to companies like Gibraltar Homes

— Greg Quan, President, Gibraltar Homes, Inc.

Curtis Communities was retained by Temecula Valley Bank to assist them with asset management. We looked to Ultimate New Home Sales to manage and staff our sales office. To our good fortune Sharon Dunn was your selection for sales person. Sharon exceeded our expectations in making it a successful venture for Temecula Valley Bank. It is sales people like Sharon and dedicated management that demonstrate that even in a market with challenges hard work, determination, and professionalism will bring positive results.

— Jim Basiger, Senior Vice President, Curtis Communities

In this market it is very difficult to find bright spots in general or even anything positive to speak about in the home building and selling business. I am fortunate to have one. Your team of Joelle Havers and Tony Membiela, put action and process behind theory and helped our company sell out of our community in a very difficult market. From the onset of our relationship, with the marketing absorption and pricing study, I was confident in Ultimate and time proved my confidence was well placed. Despite today’s challenging market, and possibly a result of it, your team excelled, and I genuinely appreciate the effort and follow through. I look forward to working with you again and wish you continued success.

— Phil Burum, V. P. Sales & Marketing, Diversified Pacific

Pleasures in life are doled out sparingly. Working with Kristina Sellers certainly is one of them. In these tough times we couldn’t ask for a more hard working, energetic and competent person. The old saying that “when the going gets tough the tough get going” more than applies to Ultimate and your sales person Kristina. Kristina has left no stone unturned in finding ways to market our project. Her personal skills are outstanding and she has developed an unparalleled relationship with the community, with business and political leaders alike. Kristina’s work ethic is amazing, we are fortunate to have her working on our project

— John Tillotson, Jr. and Daniel Howse, Pelican Properties

I’d like to give my enthusiastic endorsement of Ultimate New Home Sales and Marketing and Myle Phan. Despite what most are calling the worst financial/economic crisis since the Great depression, Myle continues to sell and close deals at a rate that is astounding even to me. Since the project’s inception, she has consistently demonstrated willingness, or even m! eagerness, to do what needs to be done to outsell every other agent around. Myle has shown the interpersonal skills to create and nurture relationships with buyers, which has proven time and again by a consistent string of sales and an extremely low rate of cancellation. I can honestly say I have never worked with an agent who has worked harder than, or had a passion and drive to succeed greater than Myle. Thank You Ultimate!

— David Barisic, Vice President, Brandywine Homes

We had a very challenging high end site in a difficult location. Ultimate provided us just the right sales person for the community. He at all times negotiated to our benefit, he was creative, and thought outside the box. While other communities were languishing, Ultimate sold out our community quickly. Ultimate knows how to sell value; they were able to get us excellent prices while the market was collapsing. The management team Ultimate dedicated to us was top notch in every way. I sleep a lot better with Ultimate selling our homes.

— Jay Skjerven, President, New Castle Development

During this time Ultimate has always been consistent with providing my firm with top performing veteran sales people who “know what they are talking about”. Ultimate invests heavily into their sales people with continuous training as well as spot on market research. As a result, they provide sales people that know how to close which sets them apart. Ultimate sales people are trained how to find buyers. They go into the community meeting with employers and spreading the word about our projects. Through their efforts they have brought us numerous buyers. I commend Ultimate for their commitment to providing professionalism and integrity in every aspect of their sales business.

— Kirk Bowlus, President, Bowlus-Pacific Venture Corp.

In today’s challenging new home marketplace, rife with our competition slashing their prices faster then we can keep track of it, we’d like to extend our gratitude to you, Liz, Penny and the entire Ultimate New Homes team for all of your hard work and efforts in achieving our recent sold out status. We can say with a great deal of certainty that Ultimate New Homes did a great job of achieving the highest prices we could in a market with a lot of tough competition priced significantly lower than us, and for that, we extend our many thanks.

— George Jordan, Vice-President, ANR Homes

We have been extremely pleased with the performance of Ultimate. They were not content to simply wait for interested parties to find their way to the secluded location and through various security gates. Ultimate lived up to its name and developed programs to bring in buyer traffic. I have no hesitation in recommending Ultimate to colleagues who insist on a high degree of performance from a committed, energetic and motivated team. They supported the project with several members of their senior management team and were consistently coming up with solutions rather than excuses.

— Mark Jacobs, Senior Vice President, Oaktree Capital Management

— Jay Stark, Managing Director / Phoenix Realty Group

This letter is a whole hearted endorsement of Ultimate New Home Sales and Douglas Sievertson. I have used them on 3 different projects and have been very happy with the results they have achieved for me in this difficult market. They listen to my concerns and structure deals that are easy for me to accept. Despite today’s challenging market Douglas is always optimistic and assertive in dealing with prospects and finding new ways to appeal to potential buyers. With many buyers hesitant to purchase and extremely price sensitive, Douglas has been able to establish a comfort level with his buyers that has resulted in them moving forward despite their concerns about the market. In addition to Douglas, Randy Tasch and the management staff have provided excellent support and pricing analysis so I know we are pricing the properties at the proper points. I strongly recommend UNHS to anyone that needs a strong sales team.

— Greg Sharp, Allen Avenue Partners, LLC /SoCal Homes, LLC /Vanowen Street Partners, LLC

Great job Ultimate team! I don’t think anyone can ask for any better. What you have all accomplished this far is absolutely amazing. I think your team has put on a “clinic” on how to handle REO standing inventory.

— Bob Birmingham, Senior Vice President, Bank of America

Arrowhead Canyon Estates homes are very large, highly upgraded, difficult architecture for the buyer profile because of multiple stairs and steep elevations and the local community does not like the high density of the neighborhood compared to the cabin-style homes in the area. Ultimate created sales campaigns and made recommendations that generated results. Ultimate was able to target qualified buyers that could afford the homes, instilled the value of purchasing a new home and successfully completed the transactions on schedule. Our experience with Ultimate New Home Sales has been unparallel to other brokerage companies. The UNHS Team has a depth of knowledge of the new home industry and they are highly ethical with a strong sense of ownership of their commitments.

— Debbie Magnus, Project Manager, Diversified Pacific

From start to finish she has been responsive, agile, and customer service oriented. Her commitment to Quality and Customer satisfaction has been one of the main reasons the build process has gone so well.

— Jared & Lillian Lee, Amarra Homes
