Geoffrey Chapman recommends Melissa Kinsel

I would highly recommend Melissa to everyone I know. She did an absolutely sterling job and in record time. While others were telling me it would take months to sell my home, Melissa had a solid offer in 30 days. We closed just one day after the expected closing date too.

Sandy's help in a recent property purchase was very professional and executed perfectly. The transaction was not without some technical issues and Sandy helped the transaction move forward seamlessly and in a timely manner. Easy to work with and very precise in her delivery of the transaction in a most satisfactory execution; we give Sandy the highest recommendation.

Marsha Crow recommends Sandy Tucker

Home seller

Sandy Tucker from NextHome Real Estate in Calistoga, CA, was a delight to work with. We contacted her to help us sell a mobile home belonging to a close relative who had passed away. Sandy was so knowledgeable and led us easily through the process. She was answered all our questions, was available whenever we needed her, and sold the mobile home quickly without any problems or hassles. I would highly recommend her as a dependable and pleasant agent.

Rachel Gregory recommends Melissa Kinsel


We could not have asked for a better agent, dream supporter and buyer advocate! Melissa is professional, warm, very knowledgeable- and went above and beyond to help us. We bought while living out of state, which can complicate matters- and ran into our share of surprises, however, each obstacle we overcame solidified the fact that we were in the best possible hands with Melissa. We have found our real estate professional, and highly recommend her. Thank you, Melissa!

Sandy was a joy to work with, she understood my needs for a home that I was going to be comfortable with; no crazy driveways and open space around the house due to my PTSD from wildfires. We had a blast looking at all the different homes with Sandy and had many laughs. I am in love with my new home- thanks Sandy! I have Bay Area friends I am recommending you for HVL!

Fred Bittner recommends Sandy Tucker

We used Sandy for the sale of a home in Calistoga and the purchase of another on Cobb Mountain. Sandy went above and beyond what other realtors would have done to make these transactions work smoothly. She understood my mother-in-law's needs and met them at every turn. She was delightful to work with.

Andres Lopez recommends Melissa Kinsel

Vice President of Operations

We placed offers on multiple properties before we finally bought a home that we love. Through the long process Melissa was very patient and worked tirelessly to get us into a home that we love. Had we worked with another agent, we might have just walked away when our first offer fell through.

Trade/Hospitality Manager

Sandy was a complete joy from the very beginning until the end. Upon meeting Sandy the first day she was a joy to work with. She set up a record number of houses for us to see per our request and did an amazing job. She was able to answer all of our questions that we had about the process and also about the area since it will be our first time living in Hidden Valley and surrounding areas. Sandy was always communicative, open and honest and figured us out and knew exactly what we wanted. There is no doubt that we would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home in that are or anywhere! We felt totally taken care of at all times and trusted her at all times, a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

Cynthia & Phred recommend Melissa Kinsel


Melissa is an excellent professional. She has gone out of her way to do research, make contacts and guide us through the process of buying land. She listened to what we wanted and stayed in communication with us. She showed us some properties in person and also was willing to go buy herself and FaceTime us directly from the property, gave us insights into the sellers situation and made us feel welcome in a community that we are not familiar with, especially as a mixed race and LGBTQ+ couple. We definitely recommend her! She is the best agent that we have ever worked with!
