  • I have just tried to expand a simple home network into a small but techy business, and converted one Mac to a server with 10 devices attached. All this consumer-grade Linksys, Netgear, Apple and PC stuff was not talking to each other. They are now. I could have done this myself, if I had a week to poke and prod and test and try again. Sara fixed it fast.
    — Hans Leatz
  • I have called on Sara to help me on a number of occasions. She arrived quickly and let me know what was wrong with the computers, fixed what was going on right on the spot and when I needed Macbook repair, she was able to tell me how much it would cost to fix. She is very knowledgeable about Mac Systems and how to make everything work together.She is very reliable and friendly. I am so excited to have this service available here in Malibu!

  • Sara helped us when we upgraded our system and had a lot of problems. She made everything secure in our home network and our printer finally works wirelessly! Updated everything and gave us an Apple service tune-up. She was so nice and explained what she was doing every step of the way. She was so good we kept asked her to help with our iPhones and iPads too. Will call her again! She’s the real deal!

  • Sara Gepp - head geek of Close to the Earth Apple IT services - just saved my bacon in the form of restoring to life my 2010 Mac Pro tower 8-core computer. Sara was capable, thoughtful and kind and put my worries completely to rest. She worked closely with my changeable schedule to come to the rescue as quickly as she could. The stakes were high: I depend on this superb but older Mac for my daily bread and butter as a Malibu-based video producer and photographer. Sara fixed all my problems and more. Not cheap, but worth every dime, believe me! Sara, I am so grateful for your wisdom, experience and kindness today! Now I can get back to work.
