Will, You were great during the whole process of selling our cabin in Big Bear. Very professional, honest, firm and trustworthy. You did whatever you promised you would and did it in the best way. Thank you!Hashemi's
Our experience with your office was great from the moment we walked in and fortunate enough to connect with Tarl Wood. Tarl listened to our concerns, needs and budget and went over and above our expectations to find us the cabin we wanted. Tarl understood that we lived far from Big Bear so when we made the drive up he maximized our time & showed us every available property. Tarl also kept in close contact through email & phone conversations to let us know of “new” …Perry & Colette Gustafson

Tarl did an amazing job finding the right house & connecting me with others that made the process quick & easy. I closed in less than 21 days & was very happy. I can’t say enough about Tarl’s service & I would recommend him to anyone looking for a place in Big Bear. I thank Tarl again for everything.Cyndi Dart
Lisa & Rahill exceeded our expectations.  I feel Lisa is just as interested in making friendships as she is in selling real estate. She showed us 19 properties in one afternoon. That must be some kind of record. Talk about organized & multi-tasking all at once. Very impressive. I wish she worked for me at my firm.Mark & Diane Frank
Thank you for the great service you and your team provided.Karim
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
Tarl Wood was our agent that helped us with the purchase of our house. He did a fantastic job. He went above & beyond in helping us with the process of buying a home in Big Bear. It was a pleasure working with him every step of the purchase. Top notch!!!  Ken & Cindy Epema
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
Rick was great from the start. He was not pushy and answered all our questions. If there was something he didn’t know he would be honest about it and got back to us with an answer. He was very easy going and always on time. Since we live in Anaheim, he made all arrangements to accommodate us. He also referred us to a great lender and kept us in the loop at all times. This was the best home buying experience we’ve ever had. …Hyong & Hilda Perkins
Over the years I have purchased & sold many properties including commercial & rentals. During this time I have been involved with numerous realtors and Tarl is one of the best. After I purchased this home, Tarl did not disappear (as most agents do) but continued to be very responsive to my needs & is still helping me get settled. I have no doubt Tarl will be even more successful going forward as I will go out of my way to recommend him to …Pete Buenzli
I would like to recognize Tarl for providing the best experience possible as our agent. Tarl met all my expectations as a professional and my expectations are high!  Thank you!Maritza Makemson

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
