We have already recommened James to our friends. We went into this experience as first time buyers not knowing what to expect. He was great at returning our calls and answering questions we had. We didn’t feel pressured into anything by him. He was honest and very down to earth. He was available on weekends and always got back to us within a few hours at most. He was very professional and informative and would make some suggestions but always leave it up to us to decide. All in all what I thought was going to be very stressful turned out to be a great experiance. Thanks Jim
Arica Mitchell- Very pleasant experience, even when working with a difficult seller. Knowledgable and professional. Gave me some good references for lending and home inspection professionals.
Great team with great service. Professional, ethical, kind and helpful.
Jim and his team were very helpful in helping my husband and I find our dream home. The process of buying a home is extremely stressful but Jim held our hand the whole way through he was very informative and always would have quick updates to let us know how our process was going. All the silly questions I could come up with he answered and never made me feel dumb or silly for asking. I couldn’t have found a better team to make buying our first home an easy reality.
It was truly a pleasure working with Arica Mitchell. Because of her hard work, dedication, knowledge, and acute attention to detail, I’m now in my dream home. Arica’s warm personality, genuine care for her clients, and no-pressure approach make the house hunt a fun experience. She coordinated every step of the deal and was present for the entire process. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Arica to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Arica was a blessing to us and we could not have asked for a better friend along the way in our home buying process. Yes, a friend. She went from realtor to friend in our journey to buy a home. She was patient with us and she was aggressive in fighting for what we wanted. She made the effort to know us and what was important to us. She did not present us with anything she knew we wouldn’t be interested in. To often realtors take wild stabs just to provide something for a client to look at. She was appropriately picky on our behalf. She made it her goal to know our taste and preferences and knew what was important to us.
If you want a real buyers agent, who is on your side and cares about what you want, not just a sale, please ask for Arica. You will not be disappointed
Awesome attention to all the details of our Buyer transaction. Very thorough and responsive. Thanks Arica!!
Spoken with Eric a number of times and I’ve never been disappointed with his level of respect, courtesy and knowledge of the business. He kept me and my goals as a priority, will definitely work with Eric again should the need arise.
I would recomend Arica Mitchell to anyone!!! She is the BEST realtor my family and I have ever had. We gained a new home and a wounderful friend. If you and your family are looking to buy a new home please dont hesitate to give her a call you wont be disappointed. She will work hard and find the right home for your family.
Arica genuinely cares about your home buying experience and is there for the entire process, start to finish! She does her best to help you find the right home for you and your family, and we would definitely recommend her to our friends!
Jennifer Ryan with Song Real Estate did an excellent job helping us through the process of finding and buying our home.
Throughout the process we always felt like we were her only clients even though she had several other clients she was working with.
We met James Mitchell when he showed us one of his agency’s listings and, because we didn’t have our own real estate agent, asked him to show us some more properties. Over the next month, Jim showed us over a dozen places and helped us put offers on three, one of which was for “just what we wanted.” Jim knows the market, is honest and forthright, bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule, and handled the paperwork quickly and accurately. He answered emails and telephone calls promptly. We will not hesitate to recommend James Mitchell to friends and relatives looking for real estate in the Eugene area.
They do a great job.
Arica was great! She was professional but also very friendly and personal. She was helpful in narrowing my search and worked around my weird schedule. She helped us get the perfect house!
Sometimes selling a house is almost a joy. This one was.. We really had to sell our house (over 3000 sq. ft. in the country for a couple of advancing years is too much house to manage) and had tried for six months with another real estate agent. We saw only potential buyers who really didn’t want our house. After the six months we were despondent with the lack of action, let alone success. We took our house off the market.
Then we remembered Arica Mitchell of Song Real Estate who had knocked on our door a year earlier while she was selling the house next to us (the selling seemed to be efficient and fast and the neighbors liked her). She left her card and said if we ever wanted to sell we might consider asking her. We checked and found she had a great selling record so we called. At first her plan seemed elaborate with someone staging our house and then an outside photographer doing the pictures. (I’m a photographer and I consider I have more than adequate photos of our house). Anyway Julie, my wife, and I decided to give Arica a chance and do whatever she told us to do. (I’m rarely that compliant.)
Things happened rapidly. Within two weeks we had an offer and, with the usual bargaining, we arrived at a selling price which was only a little below what we hoped for. Even better was a six week to closing date. A survey followed was followed by some slightly expensive repairs at the buyer’s request. We did these anyway (though Erica may have negotiated) and everything went supremely well from there. Good communication from Song Real Estate, documents arriving on time (DocuSign is a new and fast world for me) and the closing happened exactly as planned.
So we would have no hesitation in recommending Song Real Estate to anyone like us who has a slightly unusual house and would like swift action.
These guys and gals are awsome definitely would recommend them to anybody looking to buy or sell their home Eric is awesome and so is Arica
In our first meeting with Arica she explained the entire process of buying a home. She is increadibly organized and took the time to understand what our needs were. Within in days, she had us out and looking at homes. She listened as we talked about each home we saw, giving her the ability to really tap into homes that suited us. The perfect home came on the market and she contacted us even before it was advertisted. We scooped it up and had a done deal within days. If you want a a realtor who is a “go getter” you want to be working with Arica. She will make things happen!
Arica was great from start to finish. She worked with me from out of state selling the property of a deceased relative. She helped me get the property cleaned up, hired people to clean, got me 20% over the asking price, and the money from the sale was in my account a week to the day from when we LISTED it. Very quick sale! I’d use her again in a second
I highly recommend Arica! I live out of town and had to sell my father’s house. She had a buyer the first day and we handled all communication online and by phone. She always got back to me immediately and had answers to all my questions. Arica works extremely hard and gets results. I would highly recommend her and she would be my first call if I need a realtor again.
Jim is very dependable and available on weekends. Once I found a house I liked, and put the offer in, it only took approx 1 month to get the house and move in. No problems whatsoever. If I was to sell, I would use him again.
I couldn’t ask for a better real estate agent!! My loan officer told me that Arica would work hard for me. He was 100% correct. She wasn’t out just trying to make a sale, she wanted to find me a home that fit my needs and price range. Being a bank owned home there were a lot of loop holes to jump through and many obstacles to go around. Arica spent numerous hours talking and negotiating with various people involved with the sell. Which made it easier on my end. She always answered my phone calls or returned them when she had a free minute. I’m very impressed with Arica. She is a good person and real estate agent. Best of luck to all. Shane
We met Arica through my mother in law when she helped find her a new place! We contacted her a couple years ago when we were thinking about listing our home for sale. Arica was super helpful she came over and met with us and brought everything we would need to make a decision if it was the right time for us to list our house. At that time after talking about it we decided that we weren’t ready to sell yet. Arica was very respectful of our decision and said she would be happy to help when we were ready! About a year later after having a baby we decided we were ready for a new place and Arica was our first call! She met with us again went over everything and we decided it was the perfect time to list our house! Her team was awesome during the process, I was always notified as soon as someone wanted to schedule a showing on the house and they always called to make sure it was a good time before setting it up. We ended up getting a couple offers on the house and accepted one! She was super helpful during the closing process, anytime we had questions I always got an answer the same day and never felt like she was to busy to help us even though her life is always going a million miles per hour! Arica is truly a professional she knows what she’s doing and does it very well. We will definitely recommend all of our friends and family to her. She also has an entire team of agents that help find you a new house! We were lucky enough to get set up with Emily Williamson who has also been AMAZING! We can’t say enough good things about the Song Real Estate team! Highly recommended!
Arica was amazing to work with. She was super helpful and was on top of thing at all times. I would highly recommend Arica to any one that is in the market to sell or buy a house.
Outstanding support and service. Our realtor was always available in responding to our calls and requests for information, and never kept us waiting. Customer service at it’s best. I would certainly refer any friends, family or others to contact Jennifer Ryan for any real estate needs
Arica is very personable, positive, and capable and did a great job selling my home in a tough market.
Amazing lady! She helped us purchase and sell our home. Very professional, not pushy, very knowledgeable with all your questions. Definitely would go back is we ever returned to the area and reccomened to anyone looking for an agent.
Early in my home search, Arica took the initiative to contact me after I had briefly reviewed her company’s website. She worked with me via email and phone calls and was prepared to take us on actual walk-throughs on Memorial Day. Once we settled on a new home, Arica was able to actually get us through purchase and closing in just a few short days. Amazing performance!
Well to start Arica is just amazing! The ONLY reason i gave three stars on local knowlegde is because she went out of her way to help outside her local area to help my family find a home, she specializes in the eugene area and she went an hour and a half away to the salem area to help us find our home. She also reffered us to another realator in that area to help so we actually had TWO awesome agents on our side. I actually found her on this website and decided to email her because of the awesome reviews she recieved and because she had all the experience that we needed based on a certian house we where looking at. She didnt dissappoint when it came to working around our schedule since we are moving from another state,she even showed us houses(all day) on a national holiday. On top of that the house chose happened to be a short sale,which takes patience and she helped make it as low stress as possbile. We were also on a budget and she nogotiated for us and we got the house we wanted. Thank you Arica for our home and all ur help! =)
I am new to this area. Arica was a great help in deciding the areas best suited to me. She is extremely patient and knowledgeable and also fun to be with. She gave great advice on the homes I was interested in as to things to check during the inspection, what to ask the seller to repair and of course pricing.
I would definitely recommend Arica to anyone looking to purchase a new home.
Eric remembered what we liked from the different homes that we saw so he could recommend places that would suit us. He was patient as we carefully narrowed down the location that we wanted. We are very happy in our home.
I am highly likely to recommend Arica Mitchell to anyone looking for an agent. She was very responsive and knowledgeable. She helped us sell a home we weren’t living in while we lived in another town and the process went very smoothly.
Ms. Mitchell helped me through a very difficult sales transaction. She was patient and always returned my calls within 24 hours. her efforts, over a period of six months, were always on point and enthusiastic.
I could not have done this without her. I was an out of state property owner. Ms. Mitchell’s honesty and integrity was refreshing.
I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Arica!
Arica was easy to reach and pleasant to work with. She was easy to schedule showings with and always had a positive attitude. I would definitely recommend her to friends.
Our home selling experience was unique as we are located in California and the property we were selling was in Oregon. Arica was wonderful. Firstly, she knew exactly what to price the home at so wet got a cash offer the second day! Secondly, she was amazing at keeping us informed as to every inspection, negotiation, etc. She returned all of our phone calls within minutes. We could have not been happier. Arica is professional, personal and knows her stuff! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell a home!
Arica was the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. She answered all questions we had and did a great job of looking for potential property for us to look at. She was always timely with getting back to us with info. Very friendly and honest. Will recommend to anyone seeking or selling property!
Arica was on top of it! She brought us an offer within 24 hours. She kept us informed every step of the way. She responded to questions promptly. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with her in the sale of our home. We will definitely recommend her services to any and all who are needing such services.
I found Arica because I wanted to view a listing online. The system prompted me to fill in all my info and she immediately gave me a call to introduce herself and see what we were looking for. I was not ready to buy a home right at that point, but she took my husband and I for a tour of a few homes to get a taste in our mouths and get us excited for our future purchase. About 8 months later and lots of searching, we are now in our perfect little cozy home!!
She is patient, fun, kind, professional and is willing to put herself out there to protect her clients and her clients’ best interest. I loved working with her and recommend her to EVERYONE who is buying a home or just has questions about the process. She keeps in touch even after the buying process which in her busy schedule shows us that we matter and she really loves her clients! If you’re looking for a real estate agent who is awesome all around, I definitely recommend Arica!!!
Arica was fantastic with helping us find our house. She was available every step of the way during our very interesting journey to find our new home. Thank you Arica.
Arica has been great! We started looking for a home about 9 months ago, and she was helpful and timely every step of the way. We would not have found the house we ended up buying if it weren’t for Arica being so on the ball and willing to move the process along quickly – we snatched it up just in time!
Arica always did her best to work around our schedules, even including multiple evening and weekend appointments. She has given us great advice at every juncture, and I have come to trust her advice pretty much implicitly.
I recommend her for anyone – we’ll definitely be sticking with her in the future
My husband and I looked at many houses for several months, and made 1 prior bid on a home before purchasing our current residence. During the first home bid, we lived out of state. Arica recommended several experts and received quotes on our behalf for repairs to this house. After several negotiations with the seller, we felt it would not suit our needs.
Arica assisted in helping us locate an apartment in the Sheldon High School area of Eugene, so we could look for homes in this area.
She listened to our special needs (regarding handicap accessible) and really researched a home before recommending it to us.
Arica is a professional, friendly, and outgoing individual and we would recommend her to our family and friends for all future real estate transactions.
Arica, and the team at Song Real Estate, have surpassed my expectations during the sale of my home. Friendly, energetic, empathetic and truly professional, if I ever sell again I know who I’ll call. I’m pleased to give them a 5 Star rating.
Arica spent the time to really listen to what my wife and I were looking for in a home. She took the time to teach us about what to look for in a house in terms of safety and durability. She was always willing to answer our questions and keep us grounded during the entire process. In the end, Arica was more than just our realtor she was a friend who wanted to help us find the perfect house that would meet all our needs.
Eric went above and beyond to help me and my fiancé but our first home. He worked with us since may of 2017 and we will be closing Jan 2018 . Eric stuck with us showing us homes and helping us get it all figured out. My next home will be bought from him and this one will be sold through him. He was extremely friendly and eager to not only assist in the home buying process but to educate us in every aspect along the way.
From early morning texts and phone calls to late night showings and writing offers he was there willing and excited to help.
When we walked in the office for the first time and shook his hand we knew right away the we would be buying a house and making a friend.
Arica is great! She is honest, direct, and very responsive. I told her I needed a quick sale and it was done in 2 days. She also knows who to call to get your place cleaned up and ready to sell. I recommend her highly!
Arica was great. She helped us determine the correct asking price, got it listed immediately and printed color fliers. As it turned out, we had a successful full price offer on the second day the house was on the market. We were very pleased and the sale closed on the day it was projected. Arica will be my go to realtor in the future.
You can’t go wrong with Jim as your realtor. I was a first time home buyer and he made every step of the way smooth and understandable . He had the patience to answer every little question I had and was very quick at getting me into to walk through multiple homes . Jim made the whole process very exciting and not over whelming. I would recommend him to a friend.
Arica Mitchell is very cooperative and will market your property in as many ways as she can to get the word out on the listing. She worked everyday to keep the buyers and realtors aware of price changes and made many good suggestions for staging and kept my “head in the game”. She is very understanding of realty regulations and works hard for you and is easy to stay in touch with even from 2500 miles away from home when I moved before we had an offer on the property. I highly recommend Arica Mitchell to list and sell your property. Thank you for helping me move home Arica.
I’ve bought and sold a house with Arica! She is such an amazing person and really knows the ins and outs of this business. I always felt comfortable with her and she was really awesome about explaining stuff I didn’t quite understand. I am 100% going to use her again when we buy another house!
Arica showed me quite a few houses, and really helped tailor my search to the exact area and type of home I was interested in. She was thorough, and the deal went remarkably smoothly and quickly. I’m loving my new house, and I got it for the price I wanted!
Arica is an awesome realtor!! I will absolutely use her again and recommend her to anybody I know. She is very responsive to questions, and is very knowledgeable about the homes in the area. She would go out of her way on her days off to show us places and communicate to us. She has experience well beyond her years.
Arica Mitchell helped us deal with an unwilling seller and a bank that didn’t know what they were doing. Ended up finding us a great home.
Arica was immensely helpful in assisting us to buy our first home. Though the process took several months (around five), she maintained constant communication and got us everything that we needed. We looked at over ten homes with Arica before deciding to purchase a brand new home which she was very adept at as she has much experience with new construction. She worked with the builder for us to work out every little detail of the process and allowed us to get our dream home.Arica is very friendly and was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Arica to anyone in the Eugene area.
Easily the best home buying experience one could ask for. Jim was extremely responsive and knowledgeable about the area. He never tried to push me into a home that I didn’t want or try to get me to buy prematurely. Once I had found a home to buy he was very quick to get back with me when I had question and let me know immediately when something was needed to move the process along smoothly. I would recommend him to anybody who is looking to buy and wants a smooth home buying experience.
Our experience working with Arica Mitchell was very positive. She was very responsive and very knowledgable. If there was a subject she wasn’t sure of (i.e. alternative power or heat system) she found out about it or helped us find an expert who could help us. We would highly recommend Arica Mitchell for your Real Estate needs.
It was our first home Arica was very helpful finding a house in our price range and in an area that we like and a house that we like.She was always available and answered all of our questions and stayed in touch with us.We highley recomend her for anyone looking for a home. Brent and Grace Mitchell
Great experience, my parents house sold for more than we expected with multiple offers!
Arica helped us get the home of our dreams! Because of it being a Bank owned home, we had so many stressful changes, but Arica was by our side the entire process! I would recommend her in a heartbeat! She was on time, friendly, and knowledgable.
Way better than good. James Michell went far beyond what I would have ever expiated him to do. Me, as a new home buyer, I was a little scared at first, as expected , but wow… he helped me to see it’s not that bad as ” every one says ” I’m in our home now and it wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Jim and Song reality. If any one want’s to buy a home or property James Mitchell should your choice. You won’t regret it in the least. Trust me… Thanks Jim
Arica was great to work with. She stuck with this through thick and thin. She was able to work really well with the lender, the seller’s agent, and us. We would certainly go to her in the future. She is pleasant to work with and easy to stay in touch with. We highly recomend her,
Arica is very committed to her customers. She answers the phone almost any time of day, night, and or weekend. I would like to thank her for all of her hard work and help. Thanks again
Arica- Top notch. Dedicated. Thorough. I highly recommend this capable real estate agent to anyone in the Eugene area looking for a house or looking to sell.
Absolutely the best team for all your real estate needs.
We really enjiyed working with Arica ! She worked very hard for us through the whole process of searching for a house (while out of state) and viewing homes . She was also very helpful during the purchase . Arica is excellent at keeping in touch and responding to all our request in a very timely and professional manner.
We woked with Arica on the purchase of a condo. There were lots of bumps in the road as financing fell through when we were so close to closing. Arica immediately referred us to a local bank where our file was put on a rush. In the end everything worked out so well. Arica went above and beyond for us. She was even able to help negotiate with the sellers agent to include all the furniture left in the unit at no extra cost. We highly recommend Arica Song to anyone looking for excellent personal attention in a buyers agent.
From the first meeting we clicked as to what I wanted. She listened to me and gave me complete information on what both she and I needed to do to complete the sale. The condo sold in 10 days – 10 days. It sold for just less than we asked but with all other stipulations. She maneuvered the closing well as there were issues with the buyer and she kept me focused and calm. I would strongly recommend Arica to anyone purchasing or selling a home
Arica was quick to dial in on the kind of property we were looking for and not once did I feel any pressure from her to compromise during the search process. At all stages I fealt that Arica was looking out for our best interests. Even when we were in final negotiations, she was still keeping us informed of other potential properties.
In short, Arica is a very trust-worthy and professional agent. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in Lane county.
Our experience with Arica Mitchell was the best part of our whole experience in the search and purchase of our new home!! Arica was knowledgable about the area we were looking in and when we went outside her normal area she became knowledgable to ensure a pleasant experience!! Arica was delightful always getting back to us with answers to our many questions!! She listened to our needs and found us homes that were within that scope. She most definitely went beyond her role as our agent she became a friend!! I highly recommend Arica and her agency to anyone looking for a honest, reliable and trustworthy agent!! Thanks Arica we love our new home!!! ??
I contacted Arica and within a week she had arranged to view 3 houses in my search criteria, which was a small area and a fairly specific size/price range. The second house we looked at was perfect for me and my kids. Made an offer that day and put earnest money down the following day. Had some issues come up during the time it took to close and Arica was always right on top of things and very quick to offer suggestions and had the appropriate paperwork filled out and ready to sign. Arica works very hard to find the house you are looking for and I would highly recommend using her as a buying agent. Very positive experience in what can be a very frustrating process.
Arica Song has impressed me. Her knowledge of the industry and level of service-after-the-sale sets a high bar, but its her personality. She has this enthusiasm for life and optimism for what she does that I can’t help but sing her praises. Her staff are all top shelf, and I’ve personally used her services for my home purchase and continue to go to her for council on all things real estate and would strongly encourage anyone in this area to do so as well.
Arica and the Song Real Estate Team are great to work with. Very helpful every step of the way!
Jolene was great and went out of her way to help with all questions. Was great at having houses for me to look at. She was helpful with listing I might like to be besides the ones I found on my own. If I would call she would get right back.
Fabulous!!! It took me more time to choose an agent than to sell my house. Arica is EXCELLENT at marketing. She has a degree in sports marketing, and she has translated that into real estate sales. We had 8 showings and 4 offers — 2 at FULL PRICE within 2 weeks of listing my home in Elmira, Oregon. If you are in the Veneta-Elmira area or rural West Lane County, absolutely go with Arica of Song/Hybrid Real Estate. I can’t say enough positive things about her. She was easy to contact and a real go-getter. Her listings SELL
Awesome people to do business with!!!
Very friendly courteous helpful people. They have your very best interests at heart and will go above and beyond for your homesearching needs. Professionalism is what they’re best at and that makes homebuying nice. Would recommend them to anyone who is house searching.
Let me tell you about our new realtor (and friend) Arica.
Arica is a professional. As soon as one meets her it becomes quite apparent that she is a realtor of some skill. She has a good knowledge of the Eugene area. She is organized and dedicated to her profession. She is very experienced working with electronic documents and has outstanding business instincts. These talents combined with her other professional skills make Arica an excellent choice as a buyers representative.
When we first met Arica we were on a tight time schedule. Arica went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate us by rearranging her schedule. Later on after we had made an offer and were in the middle of price negotiations Arica came through again with local price comparisons helping us get the home at the price we offered!
Arica’s ability to process documents electronically was invaluable as we were buyers from out of the area. She responded within a day to all of our requests and was always just a phone call away.
If you are looking for a buyer’s agent I strongly recommend Arica!!!
