We are extremely pleased with having Julie Kavanaugh sell our Pebble Beach property. After two failed attempts with a different company, Julie Kavanaugh took full control and got our home sold near the asking price! She handled interior staging, arranged for professional photographs, and had potential clients viewing the property's first week on the market. We needed some work done on our home (e.g. drainage due to the significant rains winter 2017) and Julie arranged and met inspectors, helped arrange contractors for repairs (all top-notch and whom we also highly recommend) and she took care of a number of meetings and paperwork while we were not in California. At all times very pleasant and professional to work with, great communication keeping us informed through the entire sale, Julie Kavanaugh is highly recommended. Major thank you Julie!

We have known MaryJane Walters for almost 6 years, she is friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and persistent. All the skills needed for an excellent Property Manager and Realtor. She has helped my wife and I manage our local properties on both sides of the management spectrum including tenant placement for our long-term rentals and full-time management of our furnished short-term rentals. Each and every time we needed her she was available to thoroughly explain the pros and cons for each property in which we needed information such as to what rental options were in our best interest personally and financially. Always putting our needs and wants as a priority, MaryJane is an invaluable asset to us as property owners and we highly recommend her services to anyone in need of Property Management.


Julie is fantastic to work with and given the opportunity, we would work with her again in a heartbeat. We were relocating to the area from Georgia, came on a house-hunting trip in April, and needed a house by the end of June so we called Julie on our way to the airport. Heard back from her by the time we landed and had houses to look at the next day. I think she showed us everything in our price range over a five-day period until we finally found the perfect house! Our house was new construction so we had a very lengthy contract. The house wouldn’t be ready until August so Julie even helped us find a fantastic furnished rental until our house was ready. We highly recommend Julie.


I cannot say enough about my experience with Julie. From the very first phone call, Julie was professional, helpful and engaged. I had a very unique situation and she was able to make the home of my dreams a reality. She is extremely organized, knowledgeable, and an integral part of this area. She followed through on every detail every step of the way which made the process worry-free for me. She has been helpful with referrals from lenders to landscape and always responds quickly and efficiently. I am in my new house and she still checks in to make sure I am adjusting to Carmel. She is fantastic!

Buyer & Seller

Julie is an outstanding agent. She is on top of every aspect of the transaction making sure that things run smoothly. She goes above and beyond more than any other realtor I have known. She is hard-working and from the minute she lists the property she is full steam ahead. Advertising, running open houses and networking with other agents to get the home sold. I have also purchased properties through her and she definitely knows where and how to get great deals no one else knows about. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling property on the Monterey Peninsula.

Buyer | Seller

We’ve worked with Julie on multiple transactions. That we keep coming back for more is the highest form of flattery and endorsement. We love working with her! She goes way above and beyond to ensure the best outcomes for her clients, is an expert on all things Peninsula, and is always a fierce advocate for her clients. And she’s just an all-around great person, helpful, kind, smart, fun, and down to earth. We give Julie our highest recommendation without reservation. She’s an expert in her field, delivers excellent results, and is a joy to work with.

MaryJane Walters has been managing our properties in Pebble Beach since 2013. We have had a long and satisfying relationship with MaryJane and continue to be very pleased with her "can-do" approach and professional grace when dealing with all the different situations that can arise with a rental property. She attends to things right away and meets our guests personally, adding extra reassurance to ourselves and our guests. We would not have purchased a second vacation rental property if she were not able to manage it.

Karen & Chris M.

We would like to acknowledge our great satisfaction as clients of MaryJane Caputo and Coast Estate. This last year she has handled one of our properties as a vacation rental. We have been very pleased not only with her level of professionalism but her swiftness in taking care of any problems and overseeing the property with superb detail. We write this letter with admiration of how well she conducts her business affairs. Our experience with Maryjane has only been good and we highly recommend her.

Buyer & Seller

Julie was awesome! As real estate investors/landlords, we’ve bought and sold several properties and Julie is the best agent we’ve worked with on either side of the transaction. And the goodness doesn’t stop there because Maryjane picked up where Julie left off, going out of her way to help us understand the rental market (we are not from the area), hints on best ways to get up and running quickly, and referring high-quality service providers. Thank you, Julie and Maryjane!

Mary C.

MaryJane and Joseph have been managing my house for 2 years. They both work very hard to find tenants, keeping me posted on the process. Also important is the great cleaning crew that they have to make sure the house stays in good shape. They are very quick to respond to any inquiries. I’m fortunate to have found them to manage my house in Monterey. Highly recommend Coast Estate.
