Sonja Coffee was a total champion throughout the entire sale and escrow for our new house! She ensured we understood each step of the process, was a champ about getting all the inspections done in a timely way for what was an accelerated escrow period, and patient with us throughout it all. She is unfailingly polite and responds promptly to every inquiry. No one could ask for a better advocate.

While this whole moving in and getting situated process has been crazy and chaotic, at the end of the day Tyler and I just walk around the house and we are without words. We just cannot believe how perfect the house is, and how smooth the whole process of buying a home was. I really say it when I mean it, but I would never go through this process again without you. Also, I never dreamt that I would honestly miss my real estate agent! You became such a big and important part of our lives, and we truly hope the best for you. So many years ago when I was a little girl, a doctor looked me in the face and said that by the age of 16 it was statistically possible that I would’ve at least attempted suicide at least one time in my life. He told me how so many people in my shoes become sad, depressed, and unsuccessful. Additionally, the grief, pain, and hard additionally, the grief, pain, and hardship that Tyler has gone through in his life, and with our children just add to the feeling of all of the odds being stacked against us. But we teach our kids that we are not a victim of circumstance and that we make our own way in this world. The things in our life that we have accomplished are nothing short of the grace of God working with us every day. And this process of buying a home falls in that same boat. I truly believe that people are put into your life for a reason. When Tyler told me a long time ago that he found a real estate agent that he was very interested in working with, I was nervous because it was one thing in my life that I had no control over, and that he was going to take full control over. Obviously, I’m not very smart when it comes to this whole homebuying process and he definitely took the reins on this one. So I was very nervous to meet you for the first time and to work with you. But after our first meeting, all of that was taken away. You were definitely an angel at this time of our life, and we hope that we can maintain a connection with you. we are so looking forward to the day when the house is ready and everything is situated and we can just sit on our brand-new couch and really enjoy a bottle of wine together. The kids absolutely love their new school, and they keep asking when you are going to come over and see the house! So if you’re ever in the area, and ready for a glass of wine, there is always a glass with your name on it in our home. We truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and I really mean it when I say I hope that we can maintain a connection with you. My mom raves about you, and she absolutely loves the house. She’s cried many times about the amazing work and amazing person that you are, and how you have helped to put us in this more than perfect home, and I agree with her. Thank you for all that you have done for me, and for my family, and I hope that we can share a glass of wine sometime soon!

We would highly recommend Sonja. She represented us in the purchase of our new home last year and also brought a buyer to us on this home. Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and cut through all of the red tape. Thank you Sonja!

My wife and I started looking for our first home back in April. We knew this market was very competitive and that it was a bumpy ride trying to find a home that was perfect for our family. Sonja took us to go see homes every week. There have been multiple homes that we liked and were willing to settle for, but Sonja knew that they were not exactly what we wanted. She had us stay on track and hold off until we found the house we not only liked but a home that we LOVED. We felt that she sincerely cared for the best interest of my family and wasn’t just looking for a quick commission paycheck. We closed on our home the beginning of this month and couldn’t be any happier in the home that Sonja helped us land. Sonja was the best realtor we could have hoped for. We would recommend that everyone work with her.

Sonja was amazing when my Dad and I were looking for a condo to purchase. It was evident that it wasn't simply about a sale/commission for her. It was more important for her to find the perfect place for us. Her professionalism and the way she treated us will not be forgotten.

Sonja came highly recommended by a trusted friend and I must say Sonja exceeded my expectations at every turn. For a seller, I could not have asked for a sharper real estate professional. Our home listing was so beautifully prepared, my wife and I agreed that Sonja was at the top of her game! We had a list of offers in less than a week, substantially over the asking price. Sonja made sure we knew and understood every step of the process and we were confident all the way to closing. We closed on time and the future is bright! Thank you Sonja for going above and beyond our expectations! You're the BEST!!!

I met Sonja when she sold the neighbors house across the street from mine. I knew that day when I was talking to her on my front porch that she was in the top 10% of real estate agents. There is just something different about a top producer and it shows the minute you meet them. I had some work to do on the house and circled back to her a month later. Once I signed the listing agreement she sprang into action. She starts by using a professional photographer, which is not normal for the industry, especially since my house was not in the luxury home category. From there she called me every Monday morning with a status update. This is an extremely hot market right now so the house sold in 9 days through another broker, over the list price. She stayed in constant contact with the other broker, the lender and escrow the entire time. Additionally, I live 90 minutes away from the house so Sonja would go to the property once a week to water and make sure everything was OK because it was a vacant investment property. This saved me from having to go weekly myself and I truly appreciate that! All the way up until the moment that the house closed, Sonja stayed in contact with me. You might think that's normal, and it should be, but it's not normal, it's the exception to have an agent that never takes their eye off the ball no matter what! We listed the property just before Thanksgiving and I told her I wanted it sold, closed and off my books in 2021 and she delivered! I'm in Puerto Rico right now enjoying the holidays, knowing that the buyer of my house is at home, enjoying his new home for the holidays!

We highly recommend Sonja Coffee for any one that is looking to purchase a new home. When we first started our search for our home we had a different realtor. For the first four months we couldn't get our offer to get accepted even when offering above market value. Then finally we decided to switch realtors, one of my good friends gave us Sonja's information. My fiancé got a hold of her, we told her about our four month search and tactics we had been using with the previous realtor just to get our offer looked at. That day she told us to select the houses we were considering so that she could set up appointments to look at them. Within a couple of days she set up the showings. For every house we went to she would gives information about the property, community, and re-sale value. That information is perfect specially for a guy that is not from California and has no knowledge of the properties here. When we decided on a home and it came time to writing the offer, Sonja took the initiative to write a letter to the sellers about us. Something that I had never heard of, only thing I heard from the other realtor was "we have to offer more money" :D. With in less than a week she was able to get our offer accept, not only was it accept but it was with a VA loan (which are kind of difficult to work with when selling a house due to regulations). The process went smooth after that and she worked with my schedule specially with me working very late. This is why I would highly recommend Sonja Coffee to any one, specially any veterans out there having a hard time getting their offer accept with the VA loan.

All this with integrity, approachability, and kindness! You kept our best interest in mind every step of the way! Buying a home for us was very exciting and a little ( ok…A LOT) scary. Thank you Sonja for walking us through every emotion that comes with buying a home! ❤️🙏🏼
We would definitely recommend Sonja! She reached out to the buyer and quickly moved on this deal. Because of Sonja's experience, she put together a competitive offer that night and it was accepted the following day. Sonja walked us through everything from paperwork needed, to financing and she even meet with the home inspector and made sure our new home wasn't in need of any major repairs. Our phone calls never went unanswered. Top notch professional!!!

We worked with Sonja as our buyer's agent in one of the most difficult markets in the country, during one of the most difficult times in recent history. Sonja took the time to understand both objective and subjective requirements, and truly understood our style preferences. After weeks of unsuccessful searching without an agent involved yet, we found our new home in the Inner Empire on our first trip out. Thanks Sonja! Highly recommended!
Sonja was an excellent partner in my first real estate probate experience! She went above and beyond to ensure we got a fair deal and that the transaction was completed as quickly as possible. I would 100% recommend her to my friends, family and co-workers!

Sonja Coffee was very professional, helpful, accommodating in every aspect of our business venture. She was diligent in responding to my concerns and questions, even after escrow closed. She was so friendly, it made me feel as though I'd known her as a close friend. I would certainly recommend her.

I contacted Sonja because she was the listing agent of a mobile home near me that I wanted for my mom since I needed to move my mom closer to me. From the very beginning Sonja treated my mom and I like we were her only clients. She was so very responsive and has an incredible and down to earth personality. Let’s face it, many agents don’t often dive into the mobile home arena because there are bigger fish out there, but Sonja treated us as if my mom was buying a five million dollar mansion. I kept her info and am referring her to any and every one I know. Thank you Sonja!!
02/28/2021 - Dan
Sonja exceeded all expectations as she helped my family navigate the sale of my mother-in-law's, JoAnne's, house. We were devastated to lose JoAnne, who passed during the sale of the house and before it closed. Sonja not only helped us successfully navigate this complex situation, but she brought our entire family dinner, offered her support, and got my wife and her sister beautiful commemorative plaques to honor their mom. Sonja is ultra-responsive, extremely competent, and above all a beautiful and trustworthy person. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a realtor. Thank you Sonja!
01/04/2021 - Edith
Sonja is amazing!!! She listened to every detail. Told her exactly what I was looking for and she showed me exactly that!! I was working with a different realtor before her and I'm glad I switched! Thank you for your amazing and professional work.
11/05/2020 - Penny
Sonja Coffee is beyond amazing! She walked us smoothly through the process of selling our home and purchasing a new home. Let's face it, this is a stressful experience if you are being honest, but Sonja made it like a walk in the park. We put our house on the market in August, sold it in September, purchased a new home and was moving in on September 30! That's all the proof you need that Sonja is a professional and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate business. Sonja also has a personal touch of caring about her clients and she focused on our needs throughout the process. If you want an outstanding and caring realtor, Sonja is your agent!
08/25/2020 - Josh Johnson
Sonja is what all real estate agents should strive to be. Professional, knowledgeable, and hard working. She listened to my wife and I and helped up find EXACTLY what we were looking for. She didn't waste a minute of our time showing us houses that she liked. But rather she showed us houses that she knew we would like because she listened intently when we talked. She even pointed out a few things that we hadn't even thought about! We strongly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.

We are so lucky to have had Sonja Coffee as our Real Estate Broker. We were under an extreme time crunch and we were able to find a home and close escrow all within our required time period. Sonja has so much knowledge of the housing industry that it made our purchase so much smoother than it would have been with another broker. She was quick to work with our lender, inspection companies and even our contractors to get everything we needed complete. Again, we are so HAPPY to have made the right choice with Sonja Coffee

We would recommend Sonja to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Sonja is a wonderful balance of a top notch professional and a kind person always looking after your best interest. Throughout the entire process she was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. We always felt she had our best interest in mind. She helped my husband and I buy our dream home. She was always available to answer our questions and ensured that we were able to get our dream home when sometimes it didn’t seem like it was going to happen. We were so impressed with Sonja’s knowledge and ability that we asked her to help us sell our home as well. She helped us understand what we needed to fix and update in our home to appeal to the most potential home buyers. Sonja is such an expert real estate agent we sold our home well above asking price after only one open house. We had 20 offers to choose from! We can’t recommend her enough. She is an exceptional professional in her field always striving for the best for her clients.

I was very impressed with Sonja's knowledge to all the complicated procedures into selling a house. She always had a informative answer to our complicated questions. She was always very pleasant person to work with and be around. We felt as if she was always looking out for our best interest. I was amazed at her patience during some difficult circumstances in the sale of our house. I plan on buying a house next year, and I will be using Sonja as my Relator.
Sonja is a true professional. She responded to our request to view some houses almost immediately and took the time to understand our needs before suggesting different neighborhoods and types of homes for us. She was straightforward and straight-talking, always giving us her honest opinions during the home viewing process. And when we finally found a home to buy in Chino Hills, she was a joy to work with - detail oriented, very responsive, and effective.

My wife and I came to Sonja in March of 2015. We told her that we were expecting our first children in August and wanted to have a house before then. We were specific when it came to the area, home size and price we wanted to spend. Sonja was very proactive in finding us homes to view as well as keeping us up to date with ongoing property interest. Sonja was able to find us our dream home and close escrow within 2 months of our first contact, allowing us months to prep our home for our new bundle of joy. I can't say enough about the level of professionalism, the wealth of knowledge and patience Sonja had us. I strongly recommend anyone looking for a great agent to consider her as your first option.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in San Bernardino, CA.
Sonja is the best! From the beginning of our search until the end she was very persistent and determined to find us the right home! My husband and I were pretty picky with our choice in homes and with the market becoming so competitive it was hard to find. Nonetheless, she was on it 100%, was very honest through the whole process, and just in time for our first baby to get here she found us the best home we could ask for! And we love it! She had the purchase process flow very smoothly, was a great negotiator and made sure all other parties involved were on top of their job as well. Her 13 years of experience pays off! If you're looking for an honest, and hard working professional real estate agent who knows the market well then she's your woman for the job!
What can I say about Sonja Coffee??? One word... Exceptional. Sonja is client centered in all she does, it's not about the commission as with so many realtors, it's about the client and their needs. Sonja went above and beyond in making sure our needs were met. She made sure we were happy and satisfied in all aspects of the sale. Our home was not an easy sell, it took time and finesse. Sonja demonstrated the utmost professionalism and integrity in taking every measure possible to diligently push our home out onto the market... in many ways more so than I have ever seen. Having sold now my 14th home I am very familiar with the process and working with realtors all across the country. Sonja is the only one I would highly recommend to any one ready to go through the buying or selling process. She exemplifies the highest standards of professionalism and a "bulldog" mentality in getting the job done for her clients. I will definitely utilize her services when buying my next home.

I highly recommend Sonja Coffee! This is the second time I've worked with her and I have found her to be everything I could want in a realtor. She is extremely professional; has a very pleasant personality and knows her field. I also respect the fact that if she doesn't have an immediate answer - she will admit it and get the information in a very timely manner. She is realistic and doesn't give false hope, but at the same time, she goes out of her way to thoroughly market the product she is selling. My home is a case in point. In my neighborhood, there (still) are two other homes - the exact same floor plan as mine yet, they continue to remain on the market. Both went on the MLS at least one month prior to mine. Within days of my listing, my home had six offers and over 50 people showed up to the Open House hosted by Sonja. There is a difference and Sonja represents the best in her field! I cannot praise her enough and highly recommend her to anyone searching for a realtor in the Inland Empire.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Sonja Coffee of RE MAX Realtors for her unwavering professionalism in selling my home. The listing was established in a decreasing market place which created an almost impossible selling attraction for potential buyers. No matter what obstacles surfaced, Sonja faced them head on and made the sales experience very pleasant throughout the process. She is not only very professional but beyond honest, trustworthy, diligent and always had my best interest in mind. I have had other experiences in selling homes and never had a better fulfilling experience than this one. I highly recommend Sonja Coffee to any person selling or buying a home. You will not be sorry you contacted her.

Sonja is a wonderful person to hire for selling or buying a home. I know because she helped me buy my first home 6 years ago and she recently helped my mother sell her home. Sonja is a professional at what she does. Sonja is attentive to returning phone calls, is ready to answer any questions, completely honest, and serious about your goal whether it is too sell or buy a home. There is no fooling around with her business. You want to buy? She will be the one to get your home. You want to sell? Sonja is totally on it! She will sell your home. If your are serious, I highly recommend Sonja to do the job. Ever since I bought my home I can't stop referring people to her. I am supper happy with my home and have done some cosmetic work on it but that is ok, because that is what a first home is about. Lots of patience to make it our way and lots of love to go with it. Sonja's positive energy in helping us has followed us every time we walk in the door of our home. The truth, I had another person helping me buy my home. But, when I was given Sonja's phone number, i called and spoke to her and immediately I switch to her because of her kindness, honesty and passion to achieve my goal. I did not feel that passion with the other person so I apologized to them and let them go. I felt absolutely confident with Sonja. I pray that anyone seeing this review and hires Sonja has the same experience as we did. I can go on and on but, choose Sonja and you'll see yourself. Good Luck to those who meet Sonja and happy home selling or Buying. 100% SATISFIED CLIENTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lidia Smith and Elenor Garcia Castanon

•I listed my property with Sonya Coffee in April 2014, and 5 days later I had 3 offers on the table.
•She is very professional and educated me on the current market conditions in my area.
•Had professional pictures taken of the property to show the true home.
•I have a very active dog that likes to take off. She took extra steps to make sure my dog was taken care of during all the showing.
•Once I had acceptance an offer. She was on top of the entire process and did her job, so I could do mine.
•I am a very busy professional person and it was a true pleasure to know that Sonya Coffee knows how to do her job in a very professional manor and had my best interest in mind.
I would and have recommended her to my friends and family.

Sonja Coffee negotiated a great deal for me and my family! It was a very smooth, no hassle deal. She is very personable and really cares about you! She took care of all the details and I felt very confident in her process. There was nothing for me to do except sign on the dotted line. She got us a great price for which I am very thankful for. She was available to me at all times, always returning my calls and taking the time to answer all my questions thoroughly. Her knowledge was impressive and her professional manner with me and the other party was also impressive. She really knows her stuff!

Sonja Coffee was very efficient in finding out what my goals were and meeting them. She focuses on attention to detail and knows how to sell a house quickly with as minimum of expenditures as possible. I was very impressed in her perfectionism. She gave every opportunity for me to get regular and frequent updates in the status of my house on the market. Sonja had multiple ways in marketing my house for an optimum sale. I would highly recommend her as a real estate professional, as she will get you as close to what you want, in your preferred timeframe.
My husband and I recently sold our house. It was a long drawn out process that we never would have made it through if not for Sonja Coffee.
This was one of those deals where everything that could possibly go wrong DID. None of it was the fault of Sonja but she was the one who fixed it all. She did everything she needed to do as well as most of what the other agent should have been doing. She kept us updated every single step of the way and remained in constant contact with us. She was always available for our questions and never rushed us.
I honestly don’t know how she did anything else during the last 2 months of it because it seemed that all she did was call everyone to try to get this transaction closed. She was running around constantly and never stopped. She is the hardest worker I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
When we moved across country with the deal not closed we felt completely comfortable leaving our house in her hands. We knew we could count on her to keep it safe until the new owners finally moved in. She would not take short cuts just to get the job done. She did everything right.
We are more than happy with how she handled the whole thing. Sonja is hardworking, professional and trustworthy. I wish she lived on the east coast now so she could be my agent again when I buy a house. I cannot recommend her strongly enough. She is not only a great agent but a wonderful person who has become a good friend.

We cannot say enough good things about Sonja Coffee. She is a very hard worker. We found her to be honest and professional during the listing as well as the escrow phase of the transaction. She was very helpful in advising us on staging our home as well. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
David and Diane
Sonja was very professional as well as friendly and dedicated. She was knowledgeable in regards to the current market, the listing and selling process, and effective marketing strategies. I appreciated her straightforward approach which was also reasonable and thorough. She followed through in a timely manner and worked with me to accommodate my schedule and availability. My experience in selling my home with Sonja was excellent and I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
When I first spoke to Sonja, she was very pleasant and professional. She was upfront and honest from the beginning about everything. More importantly, she listed my house and it literally sold immediately at FULL price with multiple offers. I did not expect it to sell as quickly as it did based on my previous experience with another agent a couple years back. I found that Sonja had a unique style to her approach unlike any other that I had seen. After my house sold, Sonja had helped me purchase another house immediately and I truly believed she was instrumental in helping me get my offer accepted. Let's just say, it's not easy to sell and buy at the same time but everything worked out perfectly. In this market, there are too many games that people play with the buyers/sellers aside from being deceitful...it is extremely important to find someone you can trust to work for you. Sonja will get the job done.
I have known Sonja Coffee for years. She has sold over 4 houses for me. I have never been more delighted with a realtor. She is thorough, and knows what she is doing. If I ever had any questions, she would get back to me immediately. I have been buying and selling lots and houses with Sonja since 2005. There is no one else I would feel comfortable going to when needed.
Sonja is honest, professional, personable, and an incredible person. Thank you for letting me share about how special she has been to our family.
Dan and Cindy
I have used Sonja's services twice in a period of 3 years. She is a very diligent person, attentive to my needs, and very professional. Always responsive to my phone calls, an expert in the field of real estate, and has a great knowledge of her profession. I was very happy of her work, and I would highly recommend her as a listing agent.
When we made the decision to sell our home, we researched various real estate companies to handle the sale. We wanted an agent whom was quick to respond and sent several requests to various companies. While waiting for responses, we came across a link to Sonja Coffee's page and read the description on her commitment to the sale and/or purchase of real estate. We were very pleased with how quickly she got back to us. Had it not been for Ms. Coffee's diligence and rapid response we would have chosen to use another agent's services. Throughout the process, Sonja was dedicated to marketing our home, keeping us informed of all aspects of the sale, making the sale transaction as pleasant as possible. We were very pleased with our decision on specifically choosing Sonja as our agent.
Javier and Maria
I found Sonja extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. She thoroughly and patiently will guide you through your sales endeavor.Sonja is honest and open and will tell you like it is, whether it's what you wanted to hear, or not. She will not lead you astray, and truly has your best interest in mind."
Sonja Coffee is a pleasure to work with and has the skills and Knowledge of what it takes to be a competent Real Estate Agent. What makes Sonja stand out is her personality and professional attitude towards every transaction she does. Sonja is one of most honest people I know, and makes every transaction like it would be her own."
"Sonja is the most honest person I know. I have known and worked with her previously for 7+ years. She is as professional as they come."
