Testimonials

We are so grateful for Cory and Margo of Home Again. In the midst of all of the chaos caused by COVID, our family realized it was time to upgrade our home to better suit our family’s needs, though we were nervous about the timing and all of the details that go into selling and buying. Cory and Margo met us exactly where we were, listening to our desires and concerns, and helped us chart a course forward. They made the process easy and smooth. Margo was great about helping us find places that met our specific desires including location and features of the home, while also never pushing us to look outside of our budget. When we found the right place, she guided us well through an offer and negotiations in a very tough market. We are thrilled with our home! Cory did an equally excellent job with the selling of our home. He took the extra time and care to truly capture the great features of our home and the extra touches we had added over the years. Not only did our condo sell very quickly, but it was a record high sale for the complex. When there were a few complexities that suddenly turned up over the weekend at closing, Cory took care of them, allowing us to focus on our move. Although we hope to not move for a very long time, if we do have to move, our first call will be to Cory and Margo!

Picture this. It’s 2020, during covid, and you decide to buy and sell a home. Most people would think you were crazy. Most people thought we were crazy. But we had a secret weapon. Cory and Margo of Home Again. From the start, Cory helped us get our home looking perfect for picture day and Margo made our house look so good we wanted to buy it all over again. All the work we had put into the house over the years was highlighted, showing the strength of our home on the market. Cory made sure we used the description of the property to its fullest and made sure every picture had captions highlighting the upgrades, the community, and the surrounding neighborhood. And all that work was worth it! Those flat surfaces Cory kept asking for paid off with an accepted offer in under 48-hours. He worked with the buyer, keeping everything easy for us while we continued to work from home during Covid, even handling rent-back negotiations when we experienced a change in closing date from the sellers on our purchase. When it came to buying, Margo was extremely responsive to our needs. She helped us as we evaluated place after place, handling all the covid protocols and keeping us and the sellers safe. She talked us through the positives and negatives of choices, what might affect our lives as we moved from AG to Paso, and then negotiated an offer that was accepted for our dream home. Yet, even while we fretted, Margo was standing by ready to help morning and night. Even after the sale had closed, Margo has been there to communicate with the previous owners on our (or their behalf). For the loan, it was extremely convenient to work with Margo. She knew our budget from the very beginning and helped arrange everything to make sure our offer was as strong as possible. Throughout the process, she made sure every “i” was dotted and “t” crossed. The loan closed on-time and without a hitch.

What can I say about Cory Mason as a Realtor? Just not enough! He is a Realtor Extraordinaire! I bought my house through Cory 16 years ago and sold it recently through him, and both times he went above and beyond what could be expected of any Realtor. Trustworthy, very thorough, strategic and thoughtful are just a few words I would use to describe how he handled the recent selling of my home in the midst of all this Covid chaos. He and Margo, his wife, make a great team. Initially, they presented to me their strategy and timeline, so I would know what to expect. Margo did a wonderful job of photographing, editing, copy editing and presenting my home online, and Cory walked me through the preparation of getting my house ready to sell and kept checking on me to see if I needed any help to get things done. He then marketed the house in such a way that it sold within three days. He was always available if I had any questions and always protected my interests. The house was suppose to close on one date, my furniture was gone and I was ready to go, but the bank said they couldn’t close on the allotted date because they were backlogged. So, he made sure my hotel was covered until the closing and every other detail was covered. I am grateful and highly recommend Cory and Margo: they were a pleasure to work with under such stressful conditions.

It was extremely refreshing to work with Cory and Margo to handle our selling, buying, and loan, all in one place. This review will be for the buying (and loan) of our dream home. When it came to buying, Margo was extremely responsive to our needs. She helped us as we evaluated place after place, handling all the covid protocols and keeping us and the sellers safe. She talked us through the positives and negatives of choices, what might affect our lives as we moved from AG to Paso, and then negotiated an offer that was accepted for our dream home. Yet, even while we fretted, Margo was standing by ready to help morning and night. Even after the sale had closed, Margo has been there to communicate with the previous owners on our (or their behalf). For the loan, it was extremely convenient to work with Margo. She knew our budget from the very beginning and helped arrange everything to make sure our offer was as strong as possible. Throughout the process, she made sure every “i” was dotted and “t” crossed. The loan closed on-time and without a hitch. Buying and selling a home is extremely stressful, and while Cory and Margo can’t get rid of all the stress, they certainly helped reduce it. 2020 was no match for that team.

My husband and I recently sold our condo in Pismo Beach as we found our forever home on the central coast in San Luis Obispo. We know Cory Mason from Home Again Real Estate because his wife, Margo Mason, helped us find and buy the condo four years ago. When we decided it was time to discuss listing the condo, we contacted Cory. He came over to walk us step by step through the process and all of the paperwork and made sure all our
questions or concerns were addressed. He spent quite a bit of time making sure the listing was thorough, told a great story and that the pictures really conveyed the property well. He also suggested getting a home inspection so that we could know if there we any items to address and get them taken care of before the listing hit the market. I believe this was an important part of
the process for us and any potential buyer. The fact that they could review a current inspection that showed there were no issues before even looking at the property in person is a great place to be. Once the property was listed, Cory kept us informed of potential interest and/or walk-throughs from buyers. Once we received an offer, he walked us through the offer and gave us sound
advice for countering. When got to the point of accepting an offer, Cory outlined all the milestones that needed to be met up to the closing date. He was proactive in reaching out to the buyer’s agent a few days ahead of the milestones they needed to meet to ensure they were on track for completion. This led to a smooth closing process. I would recommend Cory to anyone who wants to sell their home. He was thoughtful, professional, caring, thorough and really wonderful to work with through the process.

Cory and Margo are highly prepared, professional, and personable. From the moment we met them we felt like we were talking to friends. They guided us through the sale of my elderly mother’s home, giving us helpful feedback and saving us money on needless upgrades. They educated us about the home selling process from start to finish and connected us with contractors as needed. Cory and Margo delivered on their promise of fantastic marketing. The photos and written copy were eye-catching and thorough. There were multiple showings within just hours of the home going on the market! The home sold quickly and for the asking price. Cory’s eagle eye for details made all the paperwork that followed effortless for us. We feel so lucky that Cory and Margo shepherded us through the home selling process.

Daren Connor


I had the pleasure of getting to have Margo help me purchase a house. After a while I decided to sell and was able to have Cory help me sell. Needless to say, they each made the process easy and were so knowledgeable on everything. Not only were they knowledgeable but extremely wise and experienced when it it came to knowing the market, always going the extra mile to help me feel comfortable and confident with all my decisions. I went into both scenarios not really knowing how the process works and they helped me every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and would and will recommend them both to anyone I know.

It is difficult to describe just how amazing our buying and selling experience was. The basic premise behind hiring a real estate agent is to help you with the process of buying and/or selling a home. However, Cory and Margo go above and beyond. They know this business in and out and over the years have kept up with how to use technology to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. Margo Mason helped us on the purchase of our new home. As a buying agent, she obviously needs to help you negotiate through the purchase (which she did an excellent job for us), but more importantly, she needs to put in many hours helping you find the new home to purchase. For this, Margo showed her side of amazing patience and kindness. It felt as though we asked her to see 100 homes before we found the one we liked. At each and every home, Margo showed the same kindness and enthusiasm as the first. Our kids were excited to see her each and every time. I cannot recommend her enough. Cory Mason helped us on the selling side. He also showed amazing patience and kindness as he guided us through this process. His amazing knowledge of the selling process and how to drive potential buyers toward noticing your home is unmatched. You will get your home in front of as many eyes as possible. Cory is also great at helping you figure out what upgrades/repairs might be needed in order to maximize your return. Helping you stage the home and even volunteering to aid in minor repairs/upgrades is truly above and beyond. Lastly, the value of having Cory and Margo work together to help coordinate the sale of our current home and purchase of our new home was unexpected and amazing. To ensure a smooth transition from selling one home and purchasing another, it requires a delicate balance of keeping everyone happy while also walking the tightrope between banks and mortgage companies. This part was one of the things I worried about the most and Cory and Margo managed to ensure it wasn’t an issue at all. You cannot go wrong by hiring Cory and Margo to represent you in your purchase/sale. When the process is over, you will end up considering them friends.

Cory Mason was highly recommended to me by a friend so I decided to have a consultation. From the moment we met, I was very impressed with his professionalism and thoroughness. I did a refinance of my home through a divorce settlement and though this sounds like a real headache it was expedited quickly and easily. Every step of the process was explained and all questions were answered promptly! I was given many researched options, and given constant updates and feedback about the process. This was so appreciated in such an involved process and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Cory and his wife MargoMason come highly recommended from me. If I have any home refinancing or purchasing needs in the future, Team Mason is who I know I will be returning to!

To anyone interested in Central Coast real estate: Don’t spend a nickel or commit to a sentence of a contract without including Cory Mason of “Home Again Real Estate” in your plans. You will have the advantage over any other competition. This is a completely unsolicited, voluntarily-rendered note of appreciation and testimony in favor of this gentleman and his firm. I feel strongly enough about his expertise and his service that I want to express my gratitude by telling of my experience: I live in Seattle, WA, and through a family death, found myself suddenly managing a family LLC that held a rental condo in Grover Beach. I was short on experience and long on need for help in putting it up for sale. We had listed the property with a big name realtor who snapped a few photos and wrote a paragraph or two for the MLS but little else. It languished and got stale, even underpriced as it was. The property did not show well and looked a little homely instead of homey. Along came a flyer from “Home Again Real Estate” and Cory Mason, offering to improve the marketing scheme. And, that was a major understatement. Cory got the listing and he went to work immediately repairing and recommending small projects to improve the look and function of our property. He anticipated every roadblock and got it removed or fixed ahead of time. When he could not find the right repair person, or it had to be done sooner, Cory rolled up his sleeves and did the work himself. He set a market price higher than before because he believed in the potential of our condo. His price seemed fair, but out of reach, yet he assured us the whole while, that “I CAN DO THIS”. This is Cory’s mantra: I CAN DO THIS! He says what he believes, and believes what he says. Best, he makes you believe it when he makes it happen. Cory Mason just finished with the last of a long buyer’s list of contingencies. We are now within days of completing escrow thanks to his indomitable efforts, and at a selling price I am more than pleased with. Cory is right: He CAN and he WILL DO THIS.
I recommend Cory Mason and Home Again Realty unequivocally to anyone with a Central Coast real estate need.

Paul and I cannot thank you enough for the very professional way in which you handled the sale of our house in Nipomo. It became a very stressful time for us, but you seemed to be able to smooth the way each time a crisis arose; even with us being “out-of-state” for a few days looking for our new home. A casual telephone call from you, turned out to be a very pleasant experience for us. You did what you said you would do and immediately started the promotion of our home. As a result we had offers and a buyer within THREE days. Everything was handled in a most efficient manner. All the paperwork was explained and we were advised as to what was happening at all times. It could not have been more professional. Cory, Paul and I send our heartfelt thanks and our wishes for your continued success. Keep up the good work and may your many clients have the same pleasant experience as we did.

Sincerely,
Paul and Sara Morin


It is with great pleasure that we recommend Cory and Margo Mason of Home Again Real Estate. From our first conversation with Cory through the final phase of our real estate transaction, he was professional, extremely communicative, detail oriented and never failed to have superb follow through. We reside three hundred miles from the property which was listed with Home Again Real Estate and never met Cory or Margo Mason “face to face”. Our daily contact via phone or email proved that to be unnecessary. Cory answered all of our questions and concerns in a clear easy to understand manner which put us at ease. Our property was marketed perfectly as a result of the creative photos taken by Margo and her flair for incorporating the positive aspects of our property into appealing verbiage. We were advised by other Realtors that in this “doom and gloom” economy we should be prepared to have our property sit on the market for at least two months. Additionally, these same individuals advised that we list the property at a price which was lower then our comfort level. Cory not only listened to us but had a positive upbeat perspective which indeed helped to sell the property within the first week! He understood our objectives which resulted in a quick and problem free escrow. We are appreciative of the hard work employed by this Mason team of integrity and highly recommend them for a stress free sale or purchase of a home.

Sincerely,
Jackie and Richard Sarlitt


Cory and Margo were great every step of the way. They helped us get into a difficult housing market at a time when there was not a whole lot available in our price range. Not only did they find an unlisted place in our price range, but they found one that was more than what we expected we could buy for our first home. They were patient and encouraging throughout the months-long process of finding something in our price range, and once our offer was accepted they were very helpful in navigating through the process of dealing with lenders, escrow, and the HOA we were buying into. They helped us work items into the purchase contract and submit requests for repairs to the HOA so that a lot of repairs were done to the place before we even moved in, saving us thousands of dollars, a lot of headaches, and frankly a lot of time. To summarize, these two are go-getters, they know the buying and selling sides of real estate very well, they are persistent, and they are a pleasure to work with. I will use them again in the future and recommend to all I know that are interested in buying or selling.

Cory and Margo we are very happy that you helped us realize our dreams of owning our very own home.

Sincerely Family Arevalo- Andreina, Oscar, Juana, and Andres


Dear Margo and Cory, Without a doubt, the recent purchase of our new home was by far the easiest real estate transaction we’ve experienced because of your commitment and dedication. As you know, there are few experiences that can be as emotional, cumbersome, and challenging as purchasing a home, and you two made the entire process a breeze. What we appreciated most about working with you was your professional, up-front, and honest approach to our search for the right home, and the adept way in which you navigated the fast-paced sellers’ market of the Central Coast. You anticipated our needs and questions, were timely in receiving answers to those questions from the sellers and their agent, and ensured that we understood the buying process every step of the way. At no time were we confused, overwhelmed or unsure of what we were doing. Your upbeat, positive attitudes also went a long way in making the process fun for us. You earned our trust quickly and didn’t disappoint! We are now living in the perfect place in SLO! Thank you both, again, for serving us so well,

Mark and Sally Clayton


Cory, I would like to personally thank you for all your help and support you gave me on the purchase of my new Pismo Beach home. At age 65 and alone, it’s very scary to go out and look for a home and find a person you feel comfortable with and trust to help steer you in the right direction. You asked me a few personal questions about myself and what I was looking for in a home. Of course we all have big expectations that usually can’t be met. I also felt your professional relationship became very personal which for me was very comfortable being from a small town. You managed to go out of our way for me in so many ways. You found the perfect location and home I would have never thought I could afford. You hooked me up with Mark Frassica at EquityReach Mortgage Solutions who made it all happen as far as the mortgage. You also made sure all inspections were completed, even went to house and installed carbon monoxide detectors for me. Your negotiating skills between buyer and seller were extremely well put together Living three hours away from Pismo made it very difficult for me at times to be there for certain inspections or repairs to be followed up on. You went over and above the call of duty to be there for me or arrange meetings and any business to be conducted on weekends or to my convenience. You never left me wondering what was going on. You e-mailed or called me throughout the whole adventure. You really made my dream come true and all with a view!! Even after escrow closed you lent me your own personal utility trailer to use for my renovations. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know or don’t know, to trust you and your hard work to help them find their dream home. You make a bumpy road smooth.

Thank you again,
Michelle Franco


Cory, Denise and I want to thank you for your exceptional and professional service to us while we found our retirement home. What a journey! I’m so glad I went with you rather than the guy from Remax. What a difference! The first realtor gave me no information on things like well depth, housing plans that were going to happen in the near future, which would interfere with our view, unpermitted space. Fortunately our mutual friend asked you to do him a favor and check for me. When I found out that you included these items and more, I realized I had the wrong realtor.
You really are very thorough in all you do. And we appreciate it so much.
And I get an extra bonus. Turns out we have a lot in common and I now have a new friend. I look forward to riding on the dunes, jet skiing and hunting. You are a class act.

Tom and Denise Smith


Cory, I know Tom already sent you his “testimonial”, I wanted to add a few points.
I believe in “Relationships” as a tool to transact business, personal endeavors and any other resolution that might come into play in one’s life. I respond to relationship building and look for it with any professionals that I choose to do business with. Home Again Real Estate fulfilled all of that for me. Because of my responsibilities at home, I depended on you and Tom for my communication, honest evaluation and overall partnering with me as we embarked on this huge journey. You cc’d me with emails, you patiently answered all my questions, you respected my concerns and you empowered me to ask more questions.

This purchase not only involved “buying a house” but also relocating from Orange County. There was trepidation, excitement, anxiety and huge concerns. You addressed each issue and were truly a partner in this journey. Not only did you partner with us, but with our entire team; Jeff Forrest, the seller, the loan broker and even went as far to work with our inspector, city engineers, plumbers and electricians.

I am sitting in peace because of all of this support. We are excited to move and start our new lives in this beautiful part of California.

Thank you very much!

Mike and I were very impressed with the service and attention we received. as property buyers at the Central Coast. Cory and Margo Mason came highly recommended by a relative and did not disappoint us at all. A complimentary team, they were certain to accommodate our needs as out of town buyers. We appreciate how each detail of the process was explained and handled in the purchase of our home. Mike and I will definitely recommend the Mason’s at Home Again to all family and friends seeking to locate to the Central Coast! Thank you to Cory and Margo for a painless experience!

Kim and Mike Spicer


Dear Cory and Margo,
I would like to send you our sincerest thanks for everything you did for us regarding our move to San Luis Obispo. I was so worried that we would not find anything comparable to our home in the Bay Area but somehow you exceeded our expectations. I know clients from our of area are the most challenging because you had to show us homes in 7 cities before we could narrow our search down to two cities and in the process you patiently showed us over 50 homes. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated your never wavering kindness and patience throughout a very stressful time in our lives.

Now lets talk about the house. Wow, what an amazing piece of property. This home is so incredible and so perfectly suited for us. And the best part is you were able to negotiate the price to $125,000 less than the reduced asking price of 1.1 million. Most other real estate agents would have refused to present the offer. However you were always of the attitude that if you don’t ask, you’ll never know what’s possible. As much as getting a good deal was extremely important to us, working with your wife Margo was icing on the cake.

Please feel free to give my phone number to anyone who would like a reference for you. I would love to discuss the fun we had house hunting and your professionalism and expertise in the Central Coast Real Estate.

Sincerely Yours,
Illona and Behrooz Shakibnia


Cory and Margo Rocked!! My husband and I were blown away by the knowledge and level of detail Cory and Margo put into finding a home for us. They worked around our scheduled and made sure we had every piece of information available before making important decisions. They stayed involved through the entire home remodeling process too! We could not be more pleased and have already recommended them to our in-laws and friends.

John and Sarah Porraz


Cory and Margo were a recommended to me by my mortgage broker. I have to say that I’m very blunt, upfront, and sometimes hard to deal with. Whatever realtor that wanted to take me on as a client had to be willing to deal with me. We looked for homes for about 5 months. As the market became more competitive homes were beginning to have bidding wars. After months of searching we settled on a home and went into escrow. We liked the house but it needed a ton of work. After the home inspection was complete, we had a mile long list of repairs. This home was about 40 years old and had the original appliances, carpet, and even furnace. I was seriously getting cold feet to say the least. After a lot of time invested by Cory and myself, I finally told him that my gut feeling was telling me to walk away. I called him and told him how I felt about my situation. I was expecting a response from him that I didn’t receive. He said, I completely understand how you feel and recommended that I follow my intuition. He could have pressed me to seal the deal, but he didn’t. After that , another much nicer home had had caught my attention. Unfortunately it had just gone back into escrow. I called Cory and told him that I loved the home and neighborhood. I also said please keep an eye on that home in the event that it fell out of escrow again. Well by a stroke of good luck I received a call from him informing me that the home had once again fallen out of escrow and instructed me to move fast and get my best offer in. We put in our bid, countered a few times, and successfully landed the property. This was made possible because of Cory and Margo’s hard work and perseverance. We now live in a home in an area we love, thanks to them. I continue to contact Cory with any real estate question that I have. I even have asked for advice for buying out of the area. I would recommend Cory and Margo to anyone that does not want to be pressured, not deal with attitude, wants knowledgeable advice on the market and local areas, responds quickly to questions, and gives his true and honest opinion when asked. I can honestly say through this experience, that I have have found friend and a lifelong realtor for all of my future central coast purchases. I don’t even want to bother with anyone else. Thanks again Home Again Real Estate!!

Jeromy Moon


Above and Beyond is how I would describe Cory Mason as a real estate agent. He is highly professional and provides excellent and timely service, and the deal doesn’t stop with him when he has sold you the house. I purchased a house with Cory as my agent eight years ago thinking I would be able to retire fairly soon to live in the house. At the time, I was living some 200 miles away. Unfortunately, I was not able to retire as I had hoped, and Cory helped me to rent the home and continued to trouble shoot various problems as they came up over the eight years. He was able to recommend capable people to take care of things and he did things himself like adjust the timer on my sprinklers, over see the painting and carpeting of the house, and he even brought his own ladder over and trimmed the wisteria out of the gutters when he thought they might create a problem. He never once charged me for any of this added help! Over my life time, I have worked with many agents, but none as impressive as Cory.

Susan Manbeian


Cory and Margo, I would like to take a moment and thank you for your hard work and dedication to making our home buying experience a positive one. Casey and I could not be more excited about our first home! Working with all of you was such a pleasure, especially after dealing with some of the other individuals we met in the industry. Cory is such an ethical, hardworking and professional individual, I can see why so many people enjoy working with him. Casey and I feel extremely fortunate to have you in our corner. Often you both fought zealously for us and we would not have this house now if not for the two of you. I can’t tell you enough how much Casey and I appreciate your helpful and professional conduct throughout, and we plan to recommend you to all future home buyers we know. We plan to contact Cory again with any future real estate purchases.

Thanks again.
Andrea Hurd


My wife and I had incredible success with Cory and Margo. They made the home buying process very much a painless process for us. We have now been in our house a little over a year now. We would recommend anyone that is looking into buying a home to look with Cory and Margo for sure.

Jason and Susan Allen


Cory helped my family find and purchase our home in Paso Robles. Not only did we get the house but it was under asking price with closing costs included. Any question I had he was able to answer and he is extremely friendly. I would recommend and I will be going to him for any future realty needs.

I was given the opportunity to go to Home buyers workshop put on by some awesome folks Cory & Margo Mason and Mark Frassica. I did not know really what to expect. I have always wanted to own but did not think I could. I read the flyer and it said I could own for as much as I was paying for rent. It sounded to good to be true. I decided to check it out. After going to it I saw there is a possibility, so I went home and told my husband about it. Mark called soon after, to go over our finances, he saw things in our finances we did not. He set us up with Cory and Margo Mason and we began our Hunt! We wanted a fixer upper, so we could fix it and make it our own. We looked at many places and then decided on the one, but found out it was taken. That was okay Cory reassured me their are plenty more. In addition to all their help in finding the right home I would also go online to www.realtor.com and I would let Cory & Margo know what peaked my interest and one day I saw it. It was on the same street as the first house we decided fit but was taken but this one was better , double paned windows, RV parking and an extra garage in the back. It is Perfect. It was a mess but fixable, Mark explained we could take out a 203K Loan to have the money to fix it up to our liking. Here I am on my first anniversary of owning a home and we are living in the house of our dreams and all thanks to Cory & Margo and Mark & Aymee. Without their help in putting on this workshop I would still be paying someone else’s mortgage. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.

Thank you,
Manley and Jaime


We did it!! We never thought that we would own our own home and especially a brand new one at that. You and Margo made our dream come true! Thank you Cory and Margo for making our dream of owning a home come true. We can’t thank you enough for all the support,dedication, honesty, compassion, understanding and personal interest in helping us purchase our first home. We would like to express our deepest appreciation on all the hard work and perseverance in finding our dream home. You both have been a blessing throughout this whole experience. Your assistance in this exciting, yet scary time for us was always reassuring and sincerely appreciated. Thank you for always being there to lend a ear and to encourage us to continue to go forward, especially when we thought it was impossible. We can not thank you enough for all the time and effort you spent in helping us throughput the process. You negotiated with the builder in getting the price reduced, even when other realtors told us that it would be impossible to get the asking price down with it being a brand new home. You guys made it happen. I remember asking you if it was even possible and your response was anything is possible how will we know unless we ask. You took the extra steps necessary to ensure that our needs were met. You went above and beyond for us. You always made yourself available to answer any questions or concerns we had. We appreciate your honest approach and solid advise you offered. You’ve guys made sure all details were covered in our closing and expertly negotiated our way through the buying process, even if it meant money coming out of your commission. We still can’t believe we own our own home. A big thank you to the both of you. You made our dream a reality! We will always be grateful to you both. We will definitely be recommending you guys!

Thank you

Earlier this year we received a personal invitation dropped off at our house from Cory to attend a workshop. Hesitant at first my family still decided to attend the Home Buyers Workshop in Santa Maria. Buying a home is something my parents always wanted and this was the push they needed to make it happen. After getting a price range Cory emailed us a questionnaire to see where our family wanted the home. As soon as Cory had these details we went on our first round of house searching. The lender, who spoke Spanish, rode along in the car the first day we looked at property to open communications which was very helpful for my mother. After that, it was not necessary as we trusted Cory to protect our interests. Every time we went out to search for houses Cory was very prepared and organized. He brought a clipboard for us and a pen with information about each house we would be looking at that day. At times brought along his wonderful wife Margo who is very knowledgeable and it was extremely helpful. After a few months of searching for months Cory and Margo helped us find the perfect home for us. It ended up being a home that was featured at the workshop. While the whole process of buying the house was stressful Cory and Margo came to our house to personally explain all the documents and kept us in the loop the whole way through. Throughout the process we communicated through email, phone calls and in person and Cory and Margo were quick to respond to all methods. Cory and Margo truly care about making us happy and getting to know our family. This is something that is very important when buying a home since we trust them which make us feel comfortable. I can’t stress enough how happy and thankful we are in our new home all thanks to the hard work of Cory and Margo.

After moving back to my hometown from Canada, my husband and I begin daydreaming about owning a home. Being newly-weds with new jobs and because my husband is Canadian, we knew it would be a challenging road ahead of us. We are so thankful for meeting Cory and Margo Mason who helped make our dream a reality. My husband and I attended the new home buyer’s presentation offered at Equity Reach Mortgage, and we soon started seeing a clear path to home ownership. This path was created by Cory Mason. Cory’s presentation opened our eyes to many options we never knew were available for us. We soon started our search for the perfect home, and it was so comforting to have both Cory and Margo understanding what we needed in a house now, and looking into the future. We ended up falling in love with a new development in the 5 cities and had found our dream home. The paperwork for our loan was immensely complicated due in part to an abrupt change of loan types from CalSTRS to an FHA. The Canadian credit system is not compatible with the US FICO system and my husband’s credit history could not be used. This created a situation where additional documentation was required with a co-signer. With so many changes and paperwork, Cory was able to clearly and effectively handle the documentation needed in a very short time period, allowing us to secure the best loan rate possible. Through keen negotiation skills Cory secured our home for us, even with the extended escrow time we needed. Because of Cory’s ability to communicate with all parties, our complicated situation became straightforward for both my husband and I to handle. We would highly recommend anyone who is even remotely thinking of buying a home, to come and talk with Cory and Margo. We appreciate their hard work and dedication to making our daydream a reality.

As my wife and I searched for a future home in San Luis Obispo County, it was extremely important that we had a real estate consultant that we could rely on for prompt and honest answers. Cory not only became our go to person for any and all questions, but also became our friend. As the General Manager of the largest hotel in the county, I often am asked for a recommendation when it comes to purchasing a home in this challenging market. Without question, I send them all to Cory Mason.

Cory and Margo, On behalf of both Phoenix Lumber Company, Inc and Cowboy Lumber Co. Inc, I would like to thank you for the incredible job you did in helping, both companies and its peoples, with the relocation and set-up on the Central Coast. Rarely, in my over 30 years, of setting up a new enterprise, have I had the pleasure, of working with someone, who not only goes above and beyond, but is also committed to whatever it takes, and does so with such a positive and happy attitude. In these days when customer service is more an attitude of doing as little as it takes, it was quite a pleasure to work with an individual and their company, that’s philosophy is “Whatever it Takes” and to do so with a a smile and a laugh. As for the help you gave me personally, in finding the “Right” home (not house) and negotiating on behalf of myself, to get the best deal possible the words Thank-you do not seem enough. Rest assured, we will recommend you and your company to everyone we can that could use your services.

Sincerely,
Stephen E. Capasso


We are new to the United States. We chose to move to Central California and were recommended to Cory Mason. Being from out of country we were very skeptical at the typical ra ra you usually get from realtors. That was not the case with Cory and we soon found him to be very personable and genuine. He went above and beyond to make our experience comfortable. Not only was he knowledgeable in the areas he showed us, he also knew about finance and the school districts. If there was a question he didn’t know the answer to, he would find out and let us know the next time we spoke. I would, without hesitation ask Cory to be my realtor.

Sincerely,
Lawrence and Sharon Zuliani
