Lisa Seifert was an excellent representative of your agency. She was always available, knowledgeable and got us all the answers to all of our questions. She has a great positive attitude, and is very friendly. I chose Rahill Real Estate because of your affiliation with the Big Bear Chamber of Commerce, and I’m glad I did. Not having any experience with working with a realtor before, I was a little apprehensive. The experience was perfect.Susan Pearson

Having worked side by side with Will when I lived in Big Bear, he’s my go-to agent for every referral I have. I trust sending my LA based clients to him, because I know they’ll get the same great service from Will that they do when they work with my own team locally.Deanna Wallo-Whipp
Lisa is the most amazing person I ever met. It is a good thing we have no plans to move again, because I can’t imagine going through another transaction without her. Every person I spoke with while going through the rigors of selling a home have only had the highest praise for her. She was on time for every meeting, she was available every time I needed her, she worked well with all the people involved in this sale including the contractor, buyers, other …Donna Cooper

Both my wife & I were very happy with all the work Lisa Seifert did to find our Big Bear property. Lisa worked hard for 6 months to find the property where we can build a cabin in Big Bear. She stayed in touch and kept us aware along the way. We are both very pleased.   Thank you!    Dave & Jeanne Jensen

What a grand experience I had working with Rick & Nicki. You have a very professional, efficient crew at your office. I felt as if I was kept informed on my listing, progress of sale, and the negotiation process. Rick guided me through it all with clarity and patience. I appreciated the constant communication that I had from/with Rick & Nicki, along with the MLS emails. I look forward to spreading the word about the exceptional service that I received from the Rahill Real …Karin Powell
I have known Will for over 15 years. We met while working for an organization that teaches people with disabilities to ski. I agree with the previous testimonials that are singing his praises, and I would add loyal and conscientious. He truly cares about treating people right and standing by friends.Jason Schetter
Lisa & Rick were absolutely fabulous!! We were referred to them by a friend from down the hill, called and scheduled to meet, and the same day found a house we loved. The best part is that we came up with a long list of homes we wanted to see, but Rick & Lisa also brought us to a few houses not on our list and came up with a home that we instantly fell in love with. Lisa was available at all hours, …Todd & Yorley Blacher
Will was a real treat to work with…professional, experienced and he sold our home the first weekend it was on the market. We had a difficult buyer and if it wasn’t for Will “talking me off the ledge” a number of times, I’m sure I would have blown the sale. He’s calm and cool under pressure and made selling our home easy. Thanks Will.Christie Walker

Will was a pleasure to work with!Travis Martinez

Big Bear Vacation Rental FAQ

What is the difference between vacation rental and traditional rental? When you rent a house traditionally on a year round, or a month to month lease then that house is strictly a real estate investment, and you don’t get the enjoyment of actually using your own Big Bear house.  Many people who own a vacation home in Big Bear only come up to use their home part of the time, and the rest of the time the home just sits vacant. It makes sense for Big Bear vacation home owners to “vacation rent” their home to other people, short term (like for a ...read more
