Before we began looking for a home, we asked our friends for a real estate agent they would recommend and were referred to Rhonda Stanton. We were assured that she was trustworthy, hardworking and one of the “good guys”. Our subsequent search and purchase proved that they were correct.
Rhonda was, first and foremost, someone we knew had our best interests at heart. It became clear, after looking at many homes, that she was solely interested in helping us find the home of our dreams. We never felt pushed, rushed or inconvenienced. She was patient, flexible and easy going. While some agents may push you to buy something simply for a quick commission, it was clear Rhonda was not one of those agents.
Rhonda was extremely easy to work with and responded quickly to any question, be it big or small. When issues would arise, she handled them calmly and appropriately, making our task of moving our family smooth and easy.
After our sale, Rhonda continued to work with us to facilitate the transition to our new home, and continues to be a knowledgeable resource for us months after the close of escrow.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Rhonda Stanton for your real estate needs. I can now confirm she is one of the good guys.”

Rhonda, broker-associate with Keller Williams Realty, closed a house sale in San Bernardino for the family trust of my elderly mother.
- Integrity – the home she sold is very nice but was in need of maintenance that my mother could not afford. She handled this issue very well in the listing and in discussions with other realtors.
- Skill – the house sold within a week of being listed.
- Intelligence – she is quick witted and can process multiple issues quickly.
- Knowledge – she knows the real estate market well and sold the house for much more than we had expected. Additionally she had great contacts which helped us arrange needed repairs to the house.
- Patience – the process in California is slower than I have experienced in other states and she was always quick to respond to questions. She also personally took papers to my mom who no longer drives.
- Charm – she is wonderful to work with – gracious and upbeat!
- Care – she cared about my mom and kept in touch with her through the process to quell her worries.
I live in Colorado and Mom did not know any realtors. I asked old friends in San Bernardino for a referral to a realtor, and no one had much good to say about anyone. Rhonda came to us through a referral from a friend of my late brother. I like to think that he was still helping Mom.
We are very pleased with Rhonda’s work and support. We recommend you talk with her if you are selling or buying a home in the greater Inland Empire area.

If you are using a Realtor other than Rhonda Stanton, you’re not using the best.
My husband and I found Rhonda when I was working as a licensed Realtor myself. We were so impresseed with her business and people savvy that we used her to handle our home purchase.
We since have bought two more homes that she called us about, and we insisted my grandmother use Rhonda’s services when she sold the home she had raised her family in. Grama came out of the deal very pleased with the sale and the service.
Rhonda is knowledgable, professional and pleasant — a perfect balance, making a perfect Realtor. I couldn’t recommend her more enthusiastically.

It is always a pleasure working with Rhonda. This was the second house that Rhonda has sold for me and in February we purchased a house too. She is smart, funny and easy to get along with. I trust her judgment and I trust her which is something important for a real estate agent. She does not tell you something she thinks you want to hear – she speaks her mind and if you like it or not, it will be honest which to me is more important than if the color is nice or something like that. Rhonda has integrity which as I understand it, is not easy to find in a realtor these days. I feel extremely lucky to have found Rhonda Stanton to be my realtor and she will remain my realtor through good real estate times (4 years ago) and bad (now).

Rhonda helped me short sale three rental homes in 2010 and 2011, and each began as an exercise in futility before I turned them over to her. Although I am also a real estate broker, I had no expertise in short sales, and I quickly realized that banks were laden with layers of bureaucracy, general inertia and utter disconcern with individual short-selling homeowners. Rhonda stepped in and utilized her knowledge of how these banks work – what makes them move, who reports to whom, how deals get closed – and quickly brought all 3 to successful recordings. One in particular was a minor miracle: a Redlands property of mine had been severely vandalized and our buyer decided to cancel escrow because the house was, as a result of the damage, worth far less now than when they made their accepted offer. Rhonda contacted the bank, reprimanded them for not adequately securing the property after approving the short sale, convinced them to lower their asking price, got the buyer to agree to the new purchase price and closed the deal before the expiration of the short sale extension. This deal was dead before she artfully crafted her series of communications to the lender explaining their responsibility for the vandalism! Rhonda is an expert facilitator of “sticky” transactions: she navigates the details and paperwork of complicated real estate transactions with tenacious attention, experience and competence. She is highly communicative, and will keep you well informed of where all parties stand in each negotiation. I would highly recommend her for whatever RE matter you face. (Contact me through Rhonda if you would like to speak in person – JM)

We have used Rhonda for a rental property in the past and for our recent home purchase and can’t say enough good things about her. She really knows her stuff and goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the transaction and understand all the steps along the way. For example, we had some communication issues with the seller’s agent in our transaction that led to improper electrical work being done, so she wrote a letter to the agent’s broker to correct the issue for us, and saved us some money. We are extremely lucky to have found such a knowledgeable realtor and can sincerely recommend her for any real estate needs. She truly stands out amongst the rest.
