As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"This here is a shout out to Wendy Zepeda, realtor extrordinare! It's been two years since I bought my beautiful house on Cobb, and it's all Wendy's doing. I went in to see her the first of January and told her my must haves and she found me the perfect house that same day!! Can you believe it! It was pretty scary, I was a first time buyer, but Wendy was reassuring and calm the whole time. From start to finish it was a very stressful six weeks. Wendy calmed me down, answered my many questions, found the perfect people for inspections, even went to the official mortgage signing! If you're looking for real estate services in Lake County I highly recommend Wendy Zepeda! She can be found in Hidden Valley in the little plaza by Subway. Thanks Wendy for finding my dream home!"

"Fabulous job, couldn't ask for anything more. Treated the sale of my little lot like it was the sale of a nice home. kurt kleist- kelseyville "
-Kurt Kleist, Client
""I didn't select her. Actually, she selected me. I was on line with the association of realtors and found a house I liked. We talked about it and she said she would help me. At the same time she said if I saw a sign on the road to call her because she was my realtor now; that made me feel so good. I was new to buying a house and knew nothing. She was so good to me. She walked me through the whole process. It was a wonderful experience. "
-Joyce Beebe, Client

""Wendy Zepeda was invaluable in the successful purchase of our new property, guided us in making the right choices for our overall well-being.""
-Stephen & Lora Kiewel, Client
""Wendy's understanding of the local market and her professionalism and enthusiasm made this sale experience very enjoyable. Her communication was very clear and timely during every step of the process. Due to no fault of Wendy's the original intended buyer exercised their right to rescind their offer at 4pm on the last day possible. Wendy immediately contacted us with an explanation and a plan which involved other interested parties that she had maintained contact with in case just a situation arose. This actually worked out to our benefit as the first buyer negotiated a reduced price. The new owner made a full price cash offer so the net to my wife and I was significantly more. We have numerous friends that remain in the Clearlake area that we will resoundingly recommend Wendy to.""
-John & Debra Wells, Client
""We are looking forward to Wendy handling our next sale!!! Thank You, Wendy!!!! John and Susie Lewis Santa Rosa""
-John & Susie Lewis, Client
""Wendy Zepeda did a great job with the sale of my father's home which was a probate sale. Probate is a stressful thing to go through and grief does not help your mental status. Wendy definitely helped ease the real estate transaction, and contacted my attorney when his answers were ambiguous. I greatly appreciated her help it allowed me to continue my full time job, and deal with all the responsibilities of being an executor. Wendy did a fantastic job, she was knowledgeable and kind while I was going through a very stressful time in my life.""
-Fiona Day-Coffer, Client
"Wendy performed an in depth market analysis prior to our first meeting and really showed us how pricing our home relative to other properties would get us sold in a timely manner. Even after conditions in our area adversely affected real estate sales overall, Wendy stayed positive and kept us hopeful. As a seller in a small and exclusive community like Hidden Valley, having a local agent with strong connections and a wealth of experience made all the difference in getting our house sold. ""
-Chris & Tiffany Ford, Client
""I am so happy that we meet Wendy. She has found our home not a house. I have told everyone I know about her. She went above and beyond what we had expected. Even after the large fire she has continued to help us in every way, which was not expected. I would do it all again. ""

"Wendy is very thorough honest and upfront. She really knows the real estate field and guided us in the correct manner, with our best interest at heart. She is a blessing to me and my family and a true asset to Century 21. I don't know how we could have gotten through the home purchasing process without her. Thank you Wendy and Century 21 you are the best! Wendy was more than available for us and showed us every property that fit within our means. Wendy submitted multiple counter offers, as many times as needed. She put in offers that were way below the asking price even when she knew the sellers wouldn't accept; and worked very patiently with us and all of our demands. At times she took our calls and emails way outside of business hours. She was always responsive an available to show houses same day if not within the hour. I was very demanding and she was excellent at all times and never seemed irritated or frustrated with me and my demands."
-Jennifer Tellez, Client

"Wendy was very diligent through the process and responsive to our needs. "
-John Stierna, Client
" I just walked in to the office and she happened to be the one "on duty". We feel that we were very lucky that she was there at that time. Her comp write up on the property was beyond impressive. Her advise to us and the write up convinced us to sell the property instead of rebuild the home. The loss of our home in the fire was of course devastating, but in every disaster there is always a few people that step up to the plate help you get through it. She is at the top of the list. "
-Ty & Anita Stromberg, Client
""Wendy is an exceptional realtor. She is very diligent and hard working. We made an excellent choice by going with her.""
-Timothy Paget, Client
""Wendy's attention to detail was incredible. She quickly learned what was important to us, and focused on our needs. We felt like we were her only clients! Her execution of our transaction was flawless. Without her help, we would not have been able to proceed with our "happily ever after"!!! Thank you Wendy, your an angel!!!""
