Moving is stressful, and Rhonda Holmen was able to relieve us of much of that stress in dealing with the sale of our home in Sacramento, California. Rhonda responded to unexpected crises with prompt solutions, contractors at the ready, all while maintaining a calm and reassuring presence. We knew when we started our road trip to Chicago, Illinois, that we were in good hands!


—Alisa Delliquadri, Chicago, IL

Rhonda listened to my needs and came up with a plan that suited my situation. She was available when I was ready to start viewing potential properties and I was able to narrow down my search. Rhonda was very timely, proficient and professional in all matters throughout the buying process and kept me updated throughout every step. Thank you Rhonda for your guidance and care.


—Susan Taylor
  /  

Rhonda is extremely knowledgeable of the local market and provides thorough support throughout the whole process from cradle to grave. She made my life easy which is the best compliment one can give when purchasing a new home.


—Kathryn, Lands End
  /  

There was no question who we were going to select as our agent for the sale of our home- Rhonda Holmen is the only agent we work with. We have worked with Rhonda on 4 transactions- two sales and two purchases. Each time we have worked with Rhonda, we came away feeling more than satisfied. We recommend Rhonda to whomever we know might be in the market to sell or buy a home. We tell our friends, family, and coworkers that Rhonda is a "bulldog with an angel's face." In other words, Rhonda is relentless in getting the best for her clients, yet she does it with a grace that speaks to her depth of knowledge and professionalism. We love how easy she is to speak with and how well she listens. One cannot go wrong working with Rhonda Holmen!


—Karen Hall-Sandlund, Sacramento

Rhonda Holmen is really in a league of her own as a real estate agent! Recommended by a friend when I mentioned we were looking at selling our home Rhonda was extremely knowledgeable of our house's neighborhood and price points based on comps around the area. As we were updating the house prior to sale Rhonda was also able to put us in touch with trustworthy contractors that did an excellent job on getting the house ready to sell. Rhonda is the whole package, she is a stellar real estate agent who also has contacts whenever you give her a call with concerns. I always felt like we were in good hands with her as our agent. We enjoyed working with her and trusting her so much that we also bought our new house through her as well. She really is the best out there!


—Mark Stefanik, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda Holman was thorough and meticulous especially with the house inspections after we won the bid for our new home in Land Park. She guided us through the process of buying a new house and selling our old house quite well and made it a little less stressful especially for both of us partners who were working full time. She was always pleasant and responded quickly to our questions and needs. Truly a 5-star experience!


—Alex and Steven
  /  

I really liked the realty team approach that Rhonda and Idelle have. I put all my faith and trust in the list price recommended. As with most sellers we always think our house is better than the competition in the market. On day 3 we had the first offer and I think a backup offer by day 8. A true professional. Jenn was a great addition to the Idelle and Rhonda team. So was the person sending everything for me to docusign (sorry I can’t recall name at this moment) Rhonda, she really dealt with me the most and is truly a saint to deal with a seller so passionate about their home. Her guidance and support will always be remembered by me. I put a lot of work into my house over the years. I could not have asked for a better realty team or experience than I received from Idelle and Rhonda. They met my every expectation. Very prompt and responsive. It was nice that I never had to worry if we met all the dates and any time I had a question it was answered quickly. I can only rave about Idelle and Rhonda and I highly recommend any buyer or seller to give them a call. I have moved out of Norcal but if I’m ever there again searching for a home, there is no doubt who I will work with.


—Pam Pettit, Land Park/Sacramento CA.
  /  

It is with pleasure that I share the wonderful experience I had working with Rhonda Holmen on the purchase of my new home. Although a first-time buyer, Rhonda treated the transaction with the utmost enthusiasm and dedication. This new experience all while moving to a new city was quite daunting. However, Rhonda really has a way of exuding trustworthiness while still instilling clients with the sense of empowerment. She was dedicated to staying in my determined price point and focusing on neighborhood priorities. She is diligent and responsive, yet very patient with her clients. Once the contract was in play, she demonstrated fantastic review/negotiation abilities. What stood out to me was her friendly disposition with all parties whilst strongly advocating for me. This certainly boosted my confidence that I chose the right professional to work with. Rhonda also possesses a truly caring nature. She demonstrated this not only in the search and transaction, but also in the transition to a new community. Additionally, I appreciated that she has remodel experience, thus offered suggestions on possible risk/cost factors for me to consider. I am more than happy to give Rhonda my highest recommendation to those embarking on a home buying or selling journey. This is undoubtedly a heavy process, but I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better realtor than Rhonda.


—Kirsten Earl, Land Park-Sacramento
  /  

Thank you, again, for selling our duplex. Anything business-related daunts me, and you stepped in, took action, and got the job done. I can't imagine working with anyone more professional or more efficient.


—Betsy Long, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda was professional and understanding of my situation from the beginning. She took into consideration my difficult decision to leave my home of 30 years to enter a new phase of my life as a resident of senior living. Each step of the change was made easier by her calm and helpful presence.


—Gwen Lokke, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda is exceptionally service orientated, knowledgeable, and personable. We are so thankful for knowing her!


—Judie Hall, Paradise CA
  /  

Rhonda assisted us in buying our house, and she repeated her stellar performance in helping us to sell our old house. She is professional, knowledgable, and she nudged us at all the right times to keep the deal on track. I have already referred Rhonda to friends, and I will do so again in the future.


—Paul, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda was critical to our home buying process for our family of five. Since we were completely new to the area, having moved here for work from Minnesota, we highly valued Rhonda's wide range of expertise as well as her knowledge of the area. She was committed, diligent, trustworthy, and responsive to all of our needs. We also appreciated that once she received a list of our home-buying requirements, she did everything she could to find a house within those parameters. Furthermore, when there was a question or difficult situation, we valued Rhonda's candid and wise perspective. Finally, not only did we appreciate Rhonda's business sense, she also greeted us with warmth and welcome which was a great first impression on the California locals. In fact, our four year old said, "I miss Rhonda" after we had found our home. It is with great enthusiasm that we recommend Rhonda to your home buying process.


—Alex and Alexia Fox, Elk Grove
  /  

Rhonda Holmen is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I would highly recommend her to anyone selling/buying a home. I appreciated how quick she responded to my many emails with questions and how she made herself available to meet with me when documents needed to be signed. I needed a lot of hand holding throughout the transaction and Rhonda was caring and compassionate in walking me through all the paperwork that needed to be signed. She answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire transaction.


—Kim M., Rancho Cordova, CA
  /  

Rhonda has a great historical perspective on real estate in Land Park. She was very patient about our situation, and nudged us along in all the right ways to get the sale completed. She was referred by friends and we would gladly refer her to others!


—Paul, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda was great about letting us make decisions and not pressuring us in anyway, and was always available to answer any of our many questions as first time home buyers.


—Kevin W., East Sac
  /  

Rhonda was recommended to me by a close friend who had hired her as an agent in the past. In our sale, Rhonda was reachable, efficient, calm, and clear in her advice and directions. More important, she is a pleasure to know.


—Blake Stevenson, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda is a true professional and the BEST!


—Julie Newton, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda and her business partner, Idelle, made a wonderful team and made this happen for us with their helpful advice and real estate knowledge. We cannot thank them enough.


—J. Neeley
  /  

We had heard rave reviews about Rhonda from multiple friends/colleagues and fully trusted their judgment and success in working with her. Rhonda was a delight to work with. She was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and a great resource of local information. She made herself available at all hours and helped provide critical guidance throughout the process. We would definitely recommend her to our friends and colleagues!


—Allison Ratway, San Francisco
  /  

Rhonda was instrumental in helping us find the right house after a long search and we really loved working with her, she was responsive to detail and answered every question we had about the whole process. We cannot recommend Rhonda enough to anyone looking for a professional and thorough real estate agent.


—Jan Neeley, Sacramento
  /  

Even when you think you have the perfect house, you don't. Even when you think you have the perfect buyer, you don't. Rhonda Holmen handled all the problems with the sale of my home with professionalism, while I was panicking with each event. Thank you Rhonda.


—Janet Galliani, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda tirelessly showed us properties amidst a wash of mind changes, financial adjustments, and an out of control housing market. She is always professional , encouraging and knowledgeable. I really appreciate her contacts for work to be done as well. Rhonda HOLMEN is someone to be valued! She is simply the best at what she does. We definitely recommend Rhonda Holmen for all real estate needs.


—Barbara Hailer. Sacramento , Ca
  /  

Rhonda is one of the most professional realtors I have ever had the experience of working with. I told her she would have to lead me through the process of selling my home and she did all of that and more. I would recommend her without hesitation to all my friends.


—Myrtice Hellam Gold River, CA
  /  

Rhonda did so much for us. We live out of the area where the home was. She did many things for us that we would have to do ourselves if we lived closer. She was always available if we had questions. Rhonda made the experience very easy. She was the consummate professional and so so nice


—John and Sandy Deverman: Walnut Creek, California
  /  

Rhonda is professional and provided excellent customer service. Also very diplomatic and patient despite a tenant who made showing the property difficult. Rhonda kept us updated on the progress and did not ignore us even when there were no inquiries on the property for a length of time. Highly recommend Rhonda!


—L. Lew, California
  /  

I have utilized Rhonda's expertise on four different occasions in the past 10-11 years. Twice to buy and twice to sell. Each and every time, Rhonda utilized the utmost professionalism, courtesy, knowledge, and expertise in dealing with the ins and outs of the home buying process, selling, and in her handling of the respective homeowners and agents. Her tact in delicate situations adds to her already top notch service and understanding of the needs of her clients. She always give you the straight answer and has helped me time and time again on the proper actions and course to take. I would not hesitate to use Rhonda's service again and would without reservation or hesitation recommend her to anyone I know. She is truly a tremendous asset to your organization.


—James Murray, Somerset, California
  /  

Rhonda and her team were great from the start to the finish. Further, Rhonda has been just as attentive AFTER the sale as she was prior. To me, that speaks VOLUMES of her integrity. I highly recommend Rhonda Holmen.


—Brian King, Sacramento, CA
  /  

Rhonda's expertise and understanding the market made this sale possible. The local housing market cooled considerably between first listing and final sale. She had pragmatic advice on how to make it happen, and delivered.


—Larry Gassan, Camarillo CA
  /  

Rhonda has now helped us buy two homes and sell one. She has been the ultimate professional in all of these deals, and we appreciate her knowledge of the area and willingness to go the extra mile so much! Rhonda helped set up some contractors to get bids for us, and even after the sale, she continues to help with that process.


—Kathy Sorensen, Sacramento
  /  

As an ex real estate agent myself I know the qualities that make a great agent, And Rhonda is certainly in that category. Beside her knowledge of all aspects of the trade, she exhibits great character and care in dealing with her clients. She was on top of every step in the transaction. One could not really ask for more in an agent. Her partner and assistants are of the highest professional quality also.


—Chris Canine Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda found us our perfect home in Land Park and helped us put in an offer that got us the house over many others during that first Open House weekend. We wanted her to be our broker four years later, even though the house we were selling was in Roseville. Rhonda Holmen handled every aspect of this sale with a professional, efficient, and caring demeanor. Rhonda recommended/set up people to do repairs, renovations, and staging, all with great results. She orchestrated everything so that the house was readied for sale within a few weeks. The house sold the first week. Closing was easy. Rhonda keep in close communication with me throughout. She's the best! I highly recommend Rhonda Holmen !


—Barbara Hailer Land Park
  /  

Rhonda Holmen was the perfect agent for my husband and I. We worked with her over a span of many months searching for our first home. We appreciated her patience, knowledge, understanding and attention to detail. She is wonderful at what she does and we feel very fortunate for having the opportunity to work with her. Thank you Rhonda for helping us find our forever home!


—Bianca Valencia, Sacramento, CA
  /  

Rhonda is 'on it!' - a very professional and dedicated agent.


—Jason Bense, Sacramento
  /  

I was really set on finding a home in my price range and finding it fairly quickly. But it was difficult in the current market. Nevertheless, there were days I'd want to go see 6 houses in just a few hours. Rhonda never complained, never hesitated, never passed judgment or tried to persuade me one way or the other. She was always helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable. Ultimately we found our perfect home, and I couldn't be more pleased that I had Rhonda by my side every step of the way. She is an exceptional realtor, and I highly recommend her services.


—Carrie, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda was very highly recommended to me by a trusted friend who had been her client several times in the past. I found her to be personable, knowledgeable, accessible and professional. She did her research and set a good opening price. Very easy to work with! If I could give Rhonda a rating higher than "excellent," I would!


—Lynn Cole, Sacramento
  /  

We met Rhonda at an open house randomly and immediately liked her and just knew she'd be the right choice for us. We cannot thank Rhonda enough. She is incredible. We had total confidence in her the entire time and she patiently walked us through the whole process and gave us sage advice while looking for the right house and going through escrow. We lucked out big time! Rhonda was excellent in everything and also very funny, that should be a category. Totally professional, honest and lovely.


—Allison and Christina, Sacramento
  /  

As first time homebuyers, we felt lucky to work with someone like Rhonda! She brings an immense amount of knowledge about the homes and neighborhoods we considered, and shepherded us through the process seamlessly. Rhonda helped us to find something within our budget that met our needs, while also helping us to understand what was realistic. Especially for buying our first house, we needed someone we could trust, and we felt comfortable with her advice and opinions. We couldn't be happier with our home and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home.


—Anahe Carroll, Sacramento
  /  

Rhonda has helped us twice in the past and did a wonderful job so she was our first choice to help us sell our home in Curtis Park. Rhonda promptly communicated with us and handled all the issues that came up quickly, professionally, and decisively. She strongly advocated for us during the sale process and achieved a great result even though we had some major challenges in closing the transaction. Mercedes also did a fantastic job handling the mountain of paperwork we had to wade through which helped the the sale to proceed at a rapid and smooth pace. The Lyon Land Park team provided top notch service as always and Rhonda is our realtor of choice. We would recommend her without reservation as she knows the neighborhood and is able to thoughtfully navigate through complex transactions that would certainly stymie a realtor with lesser skills and knowledge.


—John W. Lindsey, Davis, CA
  /  

Rhonda Holmen was referred to me by my good friends seven years ago. She has been fantastic to work with throughout the buying and selling process. She was my agent when I purchased my 1st home seven years ago and also when I sold that home a few weeks. Rhonda is very patient and perceptive. She has been the "calm" at the center of the tornado as my family performed our 5 house swap in the last 12 months. She has always been completely professional and she has always acted with integrity when dealing with us, our escrow and loan people, and the other agents (even the crazy ones). Our family will definitely stick with Rhonda for all our real estate transactions.


—Joanne C. Bash, Roseville
  /  

Rhonda's knowledge of the area, attention to detail and marketing were amazing. As I live out of the area I had total trust that she would handle all the details of prepping the property and had great resources to complete the work in a very short time. She was also sensitive to the situation of our family and had the wisdom to follow up on back up offers in case the initial offer did not work. Rhonda is a skilled professional with excellent negotiating skills and a genuinely caring person. Her office staff is top notch and long distance communications were handled very efficiently. Now, if I could just bring her to my area for my future real estate needs......:)


—Carol Dwyer, San Ramon, CA
  /  

Rhonda did a wonderful job coaching and advising me and family members through this process. She worked hard, anticipated questions, answers and needs through out the house preparation and sale. The team of people Rhonda lined up to help us were good, and something I could not have done living out of state and attempting to get my mom's house ready to sell. She took the mystery out of selling a house and was available round the clock with directives and advice. I would highly recommend Rhonda to anyone considering the sale of their house. Thank you Rhonda. It was a privilege to work with you. You are informed, considerate, professional, kind, and became a friend before we were done. Blessings to you and yours.


—Dr. Karl I. Payne, Sammamish, WA. (Three cheers for the CK McClatchy Lions!)
  /  

My husband and I were first-time home buyers and we had a lot of questions at every step of the process. Rhonda always answered promptly, gave us important context about each of the decisions we made, and really made us feel assured we were approaching the buy in the most prudent way possible. We also liked that as we looked at houses, Rhonda was very proactive about pointing good and bad features out - as renters, we didn't have the background she did, and we felt very well-served by how she used her experience in advising us.

Additional Testimonials

When we decided to sell our house, I didn't really understand how much works it takes. I still don't, because Rhonda did everything. We would still be in Sacramento working through our "to do" list if it was not for her. So, this is not really a thank you for selling our house. This is a thank you for peace of mind, for allowing us to focus on our adventure and be happy and excited, for truly looking out for us. We can't thank you enough.


—Robin Nichols
  /  March 2019

It may sound cliche, but it's true, words can not express how grateful we are for all your work. You allowed us to literally start a whole new life and took so much weight off our shoulders as we embarked on this monumental journey. We are so happy in this new world, and we owe so much of that to Rhonda. This may sound overboard, but it is not. While I know this was business together, it truly was much more than that. You've done so much for our family, and we talk constantly about what a "rock star" you are. We toasted to you many times and will for a long long time. Thank you so much!
