Pam Hudson is one of a kind. She is truly a professional agent that displays an enormous amount of patience. The negotiations for the sale of our home took many unusual twists and turns throughout the process from the beginning to the close of escrow. Pam stayed focused the entire time, keeping her eye on the ball representing our best interests to the very end. I'm sure you would be well served either as a buyer or seller using Pam's services. Her manager/escrow coordinator also displayed an extreme amount of competence and personality.

Hi Pam,My husband Bill and I tried to find an appropriate website to thank you publicly for the excellent service you provided to us when you recently sold our home in Mendocino, CA. Finally we decided just to write to you directly. We found you to be very knowledgeable about the existing real estate market and its trends as well as realistic about the pricing of our home. You made excellent suggestions to increase the home's marketability and advertised it frequently. Thanks so much for your time and efforts on our behalf. You demonstrated persistence and patience and fine negotiating skills all of which resulted in the successful sale of our home. Your unflagging optimism and professionalism helped to make this important transition in our lives go smoothly. Thanks again,

Pam and I worked together for some time trying to find a suitable house--I was probably a difficult client since I lacked a clear sense of what I wanted. She was helpful in suggesting houses that I would not have thought of and very patient in showing them to me. She has lots of determination and interest, but is not pushy about making a deal. She was particularly helpful with one house on which I made an offer that became complicated owing to problems with the house and fire insurance. She was able to retrieve my deposit despite some difficulties with the other party. She was very straightforward in all our dealings. She was a pleasure to work with.
Our experience with Pam was magical from the beginning. We were drawn to her office towards the end of a vacation in Mendocino, when it was clear to us that we wanted to move here from Princeton NJ, and we bonded immediately. She guided us through a very long distance online house search, and then an intensive on the ground house hunting trip--the result was the perfect house, in the perfect location in Mendocino. We have never had an agent be so empathetic and active on our behalf--she even let me camp out in her office for several days to deal with the bank back in Princeton while she handled the local paperwork. As a result, the closing was uneventful and on time. She even watched the house for us for several months until we could close out our affairs and move. Her efforts have made a new life possible for us and we will always be grateful. We would recommend her with our whole hearts to anyone looking for property here.

My house was priced in the higher range for sale in a tricky market. Even so, Pamela and her staff confidently guided me thru what was an 'upside down' process. Pamela found a way to make the offer work for both seller and buyer; within 9 months my house was sold and closed escrow.Thank you Pamela Hudson and staff!
Pamela Hudson is by far and away one of the most ethical, experienced, and knowledgable Realtors I have ever been represented by. I have been buying and also selling investment and personal use Real Estate since 1990 and Pamela is the best. Not that it will take you this long, (because I can be persnickety about amenities), but Pamela never gave up on me. We searched for possibly over 3 years to find me the perfect second home on the California coastline. I was so picky about my view and of course, I had to have an easy walking path to the beach. And finally, one day, she knew of the perfect house for me. And Voila! As I write this review, I am sitting in the most beautiful, historic (authentic) Victorian on the coast, overlooking Van Damme State Beach. I couldn't be happier. Instead of trying to talk me into something that was not right for me, she and I walked away from more than a few deals once we got into the nitty gritty and saw that we needed to "take a pass." Pamela has your best interest at heart instead of thinking only of the sale. She really knows her stuff. Pamela Hudson and her staff run a class act! You can't go wrong if you have Pamela represent you on the sale or purchase of a property. I can whole-heartedly recommend Pamela Hudson for your Real Estate needs.
My sincere thanks for your help and guidance in assisting us with the sale of Rocking Horse Ranch. You know I was conflicted about the decision to sell, but not with the outcome. It's been a pleasure to work with a professional such as yourself and your assistant in seeing this through.
Dear Pamela: Over a three year period, you handled a difficult Mendocino real estate transaction for me, with impeccable good taste and sensitivity, requiring serious litigation moves in court against a tenant at will, who was trying for many months to upset any sales transaction, with arbitrary demands to keep for herself key fixtures, and systems in the property, and evasive answers to serious prospects, who were chilled by her behavior.Other real estate agents could not have handled each wasted prospect visit with the grace and maneuvering ability you brought to ourwork together. You also went far beyond your normal duties to keep me informed, and ended up as one of my most trusted advisers, when the right deal was in contract. I have been practicing business law for clients all over the U.S. for nearly sixty years, and never met a broker who could provide the late-stage advice to keep a deal on track, as effectively as you did for me--providing excellent photos and online explanations, practical repair choices, and an interim lease approach, which the buyer found reasonable, and quickly adopted.Throughout your opinions were sharp, candid and very productive, and your choice of co-brokers reflected your own high standing in yourcommunity for ethics and reliability. I wish that the next real estate deal I become involved in, could arise where you were practicing your profession. I know our friendship would continue and result in an orderly transaction, good for both the buyer and the seller.I also want to thank your key assistant Michelle McCoard, Manager/Escrow Coordinator for her efforts throughout. I was protected each step of the way.Warm good wishes to you and your business family,
Rio MacGregor was a perfect realtor for us. He was very frank and upfront about everything we asked about. This is what made us want to work with him. He provided great insight into the homes that we were shown, and he researched everything we asked him about. We liked his low-key persona and how patient he could be over our ruminations!
We are very grateful to Pam Hudson for finding a home for us. Although we were interested in moving, we were unable to spend much time house-hunting. We visited the area once. Pam gave us the tour and listened to our requirements and wishes. A year later, it was a thrill to get the call from Pam announcing that she had found the house. She was right, but the real work was just beginning.After our offer was accepted, we were still unable to come to town frequently. We placed our trust with Pam, and from afar, she guided us through the negotiations and financing. Her expertise and local knowledge helped enormously. She kept an eye on the contract time-line, prodding when it was appropriate. She was present for all inspections, independent of whether the cost was buyer’s or seller’s. The house required extensive renovation. Knowing there were repair issues, Pam discussed the property with multiple contractors. After the sale, she continued to monitor the renovation on a regular basis. Her vigilance helped keep the work on schedule. She was our eyes on the ground for several months after the sale.We have now moved into the home of our dreams and we are very happy to be here. Pam's help was invaluable. Any realtor will help you find a house. Pam goes the extra mile.
