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.

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 our
work 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 your
community 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, Larry Powers
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.

Pamela Hudson was a dream to work with, she told me when I listed my home that she had the exact buyer for it... and she did! Every step of the way I felt in the loop. Her office staff are knowledgeable and courteous, especially Michele. They were very patient in answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend Pamela Hudson. She also sold my business for me!

Pamela Hudson is the go to Agent in the Mendocino Coast Area. My Husband and I had 20+ years in the Real Estate Industry before moving to the coast. When we moved, Pamela Hudson was the one realtor who's professionalism and knowledge met our standards. I would highly recommend her.

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

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.

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.

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, Donna and Bill Mandelstam
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.

Meg Wilson Reviews.....
Meg was incredibly helpful to my wife and I throughout the process of buying our first home. Buying a first home is scary and the process seemed
daunting. Luckily, we had Meg. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and very pleasant to work with. She responded to every question that arose quickly
and thoroughly, and always guided us in the right direction. At every step along the way- from the home tour, to the inspections, to the closing, Meg
was awesome. We're so thankful we had her as our realtor.
Meg Wilson is truly one of the most conscientious real estate agent we have ever known. We commissioned her to sell our home in California and she did
so with great care and expedience. We live now in Texas and were totally atease leaving all the details in her capable hands! She's the BEST!!
When we decided to check into the possibility of moving to the Mendocino coast, we happened to get Meg when we asked to see a house we liked that was listed by Pamela Hudson Real Estate. From our first outing to see houses, she was spot on for what we might like to see. She picked up on what we liked and did not like right away, and was able to tell us things about some listings that we might not have known otherwise. She was able to answer our questions about the area, not just about real estate. After several months of looking and not finding the perfect house, I was afraid Meg would give up on us, but she didn't, and we finally bought a house we like very much. I am glad we had Meg's help in our search. She has been a joy to work with. I recommend her absolutely.
It was wonderful to work with Meg. She worked around our schedules, always responded quickly to our questions and requests, and helped us to find a lot we love!
Meg Wilson got to know us and our likes and dislikes. She found us the house we will live in for the rest of our lives. Great agent , very knowledgeable, friendly and always make time for you.
Meg was fantastic! She helped me through a rather unusual escrow that required much finesse. She was encouraging and kept her cool through it all. Because of Meg, I got the deal of the century! Meg was there whenever I needed her. She managed the inspections for me as I was not able to be in the area. With a saw in hand, she even cut back trees to ensure a good 'tenting' from the termite company! I will be forever grateful to her for my new house. The price she negotiated was fabulous and the extras she so expertly acquired for me were more than icing on the cake. Thank you Meg!!! You are my heroine!
Meg is a great realtor and an expert when it comes to customer service! It was always easy to get in touch with her and she used the latest technology in the real estate business. Our property was very difficult to close and Meg worked really hard to make it happen. We used other Mendocino Realtors in the past, and they weren't able to get our house sold. Meg got the job done and we were so much more happy with her work. Thank you Meg!
I was impressed with her ability to find potential homes that fit my criteria in this area. My search was a little more difficult due to VA financing and homes meeting requirements for a VA loan. Meg worked around my schedule and she was available whenever I had questions. I now have a beautiful home thanks to Meg. I highly recommend her.
Meg Wilson found us a home that we will live the rest of our life in. She stuck by us and showed us everything that she thought we would like. She also added one home that turned our heads and fell in love with. She is very good at her job and is a friendly, knowledgable agent.
Meg was the agent that represented us in buying a home in Caspar, CA. She was always responsive, professional, helpful, cheerful, courteous, encouraging, and knowledgeable. If she didn't have the immediate answer to a question she found out quickly. There are agents out there who dabble in selling real estate - more of a part time thing - but this is Meg's professional full time career. My husband and I highly recommend her for buying and/or selling a home in the Mendocino County coastal area. One other important quality is she listened to us and addressed our specific needs. With some agents it's all about them. With Meg, it's all about the client. She's a good negotiator and those skills came in particularly handy in our situation!
We identified a house on the internet that we were interested in and sent an information request to the agent that popped up. Normally that would have been a poor idea - no referral, no recommendation - but, Meg was and is fantastic. This was a short sale so we expected it to be an ordeal but Meg kept us informed and advised along the way. The transaction went as smooth as glass :) She makes herself available and is responsive, and maintains a sense of humor. The house has closed now but she is still working for us there since we don't live in the area: coordinating with a plumber, the water service, propane, cleaning company... highly recommend her - good with details, easy to work with, terrific service.
Meg is a wonderful person to help you through this stressful time! She is knowledgeable and keeps you moving forward. Meg always returned my call immediately. When she didn't know an answer she followed up on it and got back to me quickly. I would use her again for any purchase and would recommend her to everyone!
