Ray and his team did a great job helping me with my first home purchase. Ray is a straightforward guy and will take the time to get to know you and what your needs are. His team is cordial, motivated and always available to answer questions.

We are so thankful to Ray and Team Deckert for executing our recent home sale. We met Cheryl and Ray many years ago and have worked with Team Deckert numerous times. Buying and selling homes can be overwhelming, but Team Deckert brought a high level of professionalism and competence which eased our minds and made this a manageable experience for us! Ray always took time to walk us through the process and to provide expert advice. His patience and diligence are much appreciated.

Ray is always our choice and we are so thankful for his hard work with a short timeline.

Team Deckert exceeded our expectation - you can't go wrong with them!

Ray is alway prompt in returning responses to our questions and is a great communicator. He resolved any issues or concerns we had.

Furthermore, the level of professionalism displayed by his team beat expectations. They know what they are doing and remained calm during the entire transaction.

Ray is always willing to listen to our specific needs and found a solution when needed. We felt valued and appreciated. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking a top-notch Real Estate Team. Thank you for a fantastic experience!

Ray Deckert and his team helped us recently purchase the “second home of our dreams”!! For two years we searched everyday for a condo on the California Coast to escape the heat, congestion and pollution of living in LA. For two years Ray and his teams sent me daily emails of all properties available. We went to look at 2 or 3 listed properties with a team member and decided they were not what we wanted.

Because Team Deckert was so quick about sending all new listings, we were able to view a new listing the next day after listing with a team member. It was perfect because they were familiar with what we were looking for, and we made an immediate offer for a thousand dollars more than the listing. To our great pleasure, our offer was accepted the same day because Ray Deckert was familiar with the listing agent.

After the acceptance, Team Deckert stepped in to help us finalize the purchase because he recommended his extended connections with a mortgage team and an escrow company to enable us to close escrow in 30 days, which pleased the seller as well. After closure of escrow is when Ray really stepped up to help us quickly move into our new home. He did not leave us as soon as the sale was completed. He recommended his personal friend/remodeling contractor who had in his team, painters, plumbers, electricians, problem solvers, etc. and were able to completely renew and refresh our condo in a week and a half!!!! The condo looked brand-new even though it is actually 15 years old.

Ray Deckert and his team are phenomenal. He is not just a real estate salesman but more like a friend that has your best interest at heart and can help you achieve the realization of securing your dream home. You will never make a mistake in doing business with Ray Deckert and his outstanding team! I have experienced it first hand!

Rob is great. Super easy to work with and very on top of things. I’ve bought and sold a house with Rob and both processes were much smoother than I thought possible.

Team Deckert did the most amazing job when i purchased my home, specifically Rob Perron. From the moment I met Rob, he was attentive, present, available, knowledgeable, FUNNY, accommodating and kind.

This is my first house and I’m going to say something I’m guessing most people don’t say: It was the easiest and most non-stressful experience of my life. Well, besides eating ice cream. Really, it was a dream how ease filled the experience was and I believe that was largely because of Rob and Team Deckert. I will never stop singing their praises.

I will refer them to everyone I know and only use them were I ever to buy/sell again. My home is a Haven and I feel genuinely lucky to have worked with Rob. This review feels inadequate compared to the gratitude I feel but I hope it does some justice.

I’m in awe of their work ethic, teamwork, professionalism & all around personality! May anyone buying or selling a house be so lucky.

Thank you,

Through out our five month search for a new home, Team Decker went above and beyond. They relentlessly traveled and searched for exactly the right home. I highly recommend Team Decker and Agent Ray who is devoted and knows all the ins and outs of the process.

My wife and I recently decided to make the big move from Connecticut to Ventura, California. Fortunately for us, while searching for a new home, we ran into Rob Perron of Team Deckert. Rob was super helpful during our search, through the negotiating phase, and through the entire closing phase of our home purchase. Not only that, but all of the referrals he gave us for the various inspections and the mortgage broker were excellent. It's very obvious that Ray Deckert has built a very good team. Therefore, I would recommend his company, especially Rob Perron, to anyone shopping for real estate in Ventura County.

Robert, from Ray Deckert was awesome. He went above and beyond, was professional and efficient, and was super personable too. I highly recommend him as your real estate agent. We will actually miss working with him!
Thanks again Rob!

We loved working with Rob Perron at Team Deckert! He was super helpful, responsive, collaborative, and professional. He built rapport with us very quickly, which made the experience fun and enjoyable. He also comes with a great network of professionals to make the homebuying process as streamlined as possible. We had a challenging home to purchase, and it required seemingly endless patience, knowledge, and determination to close the deal. Rob really put in the work and went the extra mile to get us into the home of our dreams. For that, we are incredibly grateful, and would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking to buy a home in the area! Thanks, Rob!

This is the second time we have used Cheryl and Ray for a home sale and they have been nothing but amazing to work with both times. They were a pleasure to work with and were always available for questions or advice which made both buying and selling stress free. I cannot recommend them highly enough and should the need arise we would definitely use them again.

My nephew and his wife were beginning their search for their first home. They had decided upon Ojai California and I assured them I would connect them with a great agent through my Keller Williams network. I was able to reach out to Cheryl and I definitely hit the jack pot!! She took my nephew and his wife under her wing as if they were her own relatives! She kept me informed of the process throughout from the first phone conversation with my nephew to the closing. She indulged every first time home buyers questions with patience as she "gets it" with understanding how big a deal it is when one is making such a significant investment. Thank you Cheryl, you are fantastic!!!!!

Client of Cheryl Deckert (seller)
I was thoroughly pleased with the professional services of Realtor Cheryl Deckert as the listing agent for my house in Ojai. She was efficient, effective, warm, supportive, detail oriented, and capable of handling difficult personalities in more than one challenging situation that arose in the course of the sale. She's an excellent communicator, a creative problem solver, and can be relied on to follow through. If you have a property to sell, she's the one you want by your side.

Cheryl is not only efficient and highly competent in what she does, but she has a lovely sense of humor as well. Every interaction with her is pleasant.

In assisting our offices with a complicated case, she demonstrated incredible ingenuity in problem solving, and we were very happy with how she handled the listing, sale, and escrow process for our client's property. I would recommend her services to anyone!

The Deckert’s and Maria De Paola are the best!! Great communicators and negotiators . Love their openness and honesty. We had to get many estimates for repairs on the house we bought and they took care of everything, quickly and easily. Can’t say enough about how easy they made this purchase. As a result, we will now list our current home with them to sell. I’m sure we will be happy with the results!!

Cheryl did a great job. I was a very nervous buyer and she was very reassuring and handled all the "hard stuff". I felt I was in good hands. I can highly recommend her.

Can’t say enough positive things about our home-buying experience with Cheryl. Not only does she have her finger firmly on the pulse of real estate in Ojai/Ventura, she is patient, supportive, and gets the job done! Highly recommend reaching out to Cheryl when looking for your next home, or selling your home as you move to your next adventure.

Cheryl and Ray and their team are amazing. We highly recommend them to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home. They sold our home in Ojai, California within three days. They will come into your home and discuss their marketing strategies on how to get the job done! At the same time they also value your input. Throughout the process they kept us informed and worked diligently to make sure the process went smoothly. We moved back to New England but so appreciate everything they did to get us back home.

Cheryl and Ray do an excellent job managing the real estate transaction process. From the emotions to the speed bumps, most real estate transactions can stray from the "easy path" and they do an excellent job keeping everyone focused and they provide realistic solutions to make it a win-win for everyone. True professionals to work with.

Cheryl Deckett and I recently closed an escrow. Cheryl's years of experience and professionalism really reflected in this transaction, not only is she knowledgeable, Cheryl was on top of every issue that arose. We all worked together, closed on time, most important we have happy clients. Cheryl truly cares about her people, always keeping them informed along the way. I'm also a veteran in the business, I was impressed and thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Weather you looking to purchase or sell your home, I would absolutely recommend Team Deckett & DePaola for all of your real estate needs.

Ray and Cheryl make my job as a home stager easier! They are incredibly detailed and hands on with clients while selling their home. They make sure all the boxes are checked to get their client's the best selling/buying experience possible. The Deckerts prepare clients thoroughly about what to expect from home staging and the home staging process. So, by the time I meet their seller, everyone is on board and excited about preparing the home for sale! Cheryl and Ray are also truly fun to work with as realtors - it is evident that they are involved in an industry that they love and have a great sense of humor.

I, we - Ashton, Callie, Forrest and our 2 cats, Mr. Moo and Freya all thank you for helping us find a new home. I can't believe that we finally founds something in Ojai that works for us!

We love the neighborhood and even though the duplex needs a lot of work, we're excited about being here and fixing it up. It feels like we have a lot more space, it feels good. We've been walking around the back yard before it gets hot in the early morning, talking about what we want to do with it. So nice to have a yard!

And, thank you for the wind chimes! We haven't figured out where we're going to put them yet, but will enjoy them once they're hanging.

I expect we will talk more, but I especially wanted to express our gratitude and appreciation for all of the effort, hand holding, explaining, educating, encouraging that you did with us. You have been wonderful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! What a process and learning experience!
