They went above and beyond in helping us get the house ready to sell: arranging cleaners, haulers, window cleaners, etc. This was a tremendous help because it would have been huge inconvenience for me to arrange the service and drive several hours to the house and back again. They also did a great job of representing our interests and the house sold quickly, above asking! No complaints!

David and his wife Diana (Plank 'n Cline) handled the sale of my home in Half Moon Bay during what was personally a very difficult time for me. I found them always responsive, considerate, and willing to go the extra mile. Circumstances were such that I could not be present during the 6 months my home was listed with them. This meant they had to carry a much heavier load in terms of all things needing to be done to sell a house. They took on this extra work with amazing grace and good cheer and for this I am forever grateful to them. I can without hesitation give this CoastalAgent team my highest recommendation. Should you have a home to sell on the coast, this is your team! I am confident you will be as pleased with the result as I have been.

Grateful to have such competent, trustworthy and responsive agents to help us throughout this purchase. Thank you!
We called the local Half Moon Bay office to inquire because the property was not showing on any sites. David Cline was connected with us because of his experience in the coastal markets. We consider ourselves very lucky because David and his partner Diana Plank not only had deep knowledge of the market, but also expertly guided the negotiation process and the due diligence process. Their attention to detail and control of the process (financing, escrow, inspections) made this transaction go incredibly smoothly. And besides all that...they are wonderful and genuine people!

Unbelievable knowledge of the area really helped too. I don’t think anyone could have done a better job.
Diana helped me & my wife purchase the perfect home for us. Her local knowledge is excellent and a huge asset. Diana is the only agent to use at the coast, I highly recommend her.
From the first contact, David was responsive and a straight shooter– a trait I really like. He handled everything and his responsiveness was great. We saw the house on a Sunday and decided right there and then to put an offer on it. David had the e-docs to us before we got home. We signed and sent them back. He had a counter offer for us on Monday, we agreed and we got the final ok that day. One day from offer to acceptance and we just closed in 30 days. A tribute to being on top of his game.
Diana made it very easy to select the right house for us. She lets you do the deciding, but says the right thing at the right time. She provided clear instruction on what needed to be taken care of, and offered resources to call who were honest and very helpful. Diana followed up on all our requests and made good recommendations that were in our best interest. I could not be happier at how easily and smoothly this transaction transpired.
David and Diana are excellent agents. they are focused, attentive, and responsive. They have great experience in the coastal areas and also offer resources in many areas of integrating into the area. I highly recommend them.
This Plank 'n Cline- CoastalAgent Team have a long history, over 75+ years combined in business-and it really shows! We were shown many homes in the area each having their own allure or quirkiness. Not only did we get a feel for the area, and authentic storied history (most fascinating) but David was straightforward and really knew each home we were shown. After getting to know us, he directed us to the exact home we were looking for. The escrow process was clean and easy. Good communication was kept the whole time which made the whole process a joy. We were happy and would use them again.
