Alisa articulated her strategy early in the process and communicated frequently (and effectively) to ensure we stayed informed throughout the entire cycle. She has a keen understanding of the Peninsula market as well as the psychology involved in every aspect of the sale. Great experience!

I can't say enough about Alisa's expertise, knowledge, and caring while selling our home in Burlingame. We'd owned the home as a family for nearly fifty years; our parents were the original owners. Selling can be an emotional process, but Alisa and her team made the process easier, by her customer service and comprehensive handling of every detail. Her advice to do some improvements before the sale proved to be a huge asset in selling our home quickly and at the highest price. Thank you, Alisa, for being our realtor and being by our side the entire way.

Alisa is the like the expert surgeon one goes to when having a special procedure... the procedure she has mastered is obtaining top dollar for your home sale. She has dialed in a formula for success that no one can beat. She uses facts, hard numbers, market timing, and her years of experience to create an experience that will impact you and your family's financial life for years to come. There is no one better. She also understands the wholistic emotional nature of selling one's home and supports that private process as well. She is calculating and compassionate... a true professional! Impeccable attention to every detail.

I would like to write a recommendation for our real-estate agent Alisa Ruiz-Johnson. She sold our house in Burlingame this spring and we have not met anybody more professional and efficient in our lives. Despite bumps on the rode everything went very smooth thanks to her. She took care of absolutely EVERYTHING so we did not have to worry at all. And always with smile on her face. If anybody considers to sell or buy house do not hesitate to call her. She is the best of all.
Thank you Alicia.

If you want the best of the best then you need to use Alisa Ruiz- Johnston! She helped us sell our house this past spring and she turned an emotional experience into a pleasant one!
Alisa's attention to detail as well as her knowledge of the current market assisted us in understanding what people in this area are looking for in a home. She is very professional, dependable, passionate, understanding and provides frequent communication/updates.
She went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend her services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home.
Thank you Alisa!

Alisa helped our family find the right house and neighborhood in this low inventory market. From the start she set our expectations about the challenges in the market. Though we looked at several homes where we came close to making offers, we ended up making only one offer in the whole process. She led us through the offer and helped secure the purchase for our new home.
– Rob Flenniken
Alisa was a referral from a close friend and we could not have been happier.
She walked us through the purchase process step-by-step, and simply put, we would not have gotten our home without her.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend or associate.

Having used Realtors for over 30 years Alisa was by far the best! Excellent!

It is very difficult to find an honest realtor who is fully committed to their client. Alisa is a straight shooter who works diligently to ensure her clients needs are met. We used her to buy our home in San Mateo and found her to be an exceptional real estate agent with high moral standards, a trait that isn't always prevalent among realtors in this industry. As a lifetime resident of the Bay Area, she is knowledgable about local ordinances, new developments being planned, transportation, schools, and so much more. She is highly intelligent, creative, organized, and has a great sense of humor. People who know her love her. Her commitment to you will not end when the job is done. We continue to call her about real estate questions two and half years later, and she is always responsive. A true professional in every sense of the word.

A good friend recommended Alisa to me and I called her a year ago when I wanted to consider buying a condo in Burlingame. She invited me over to her office, and she and her associate Nancy Ruiz gave me the full lowdown on the town, the neighborhoods, the amenities and all. We went to see one condo, I loved it, she called Hollie Brand at Wells Fargo who came right over to do a mortgage pre-approval. We put in an offer the next day and made the deal a day later! It was so easy and convenient and pleasant I couldn't believe it. This was the 6th home I've bought and by far the most painless. Alisa is just great!

We bought a house in Burlingame with Alisa as our agent in September 2016
We cannot say enough good things about Alisa and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property . She was always resposive to our questions and concerns , and understood what we were looking for perfectly . As we were doing a 1031 Exchange we had time constraints , and Alisa worked hard to find us a property before time ran out
We particuLarly liked the Burlingame updates that she sent us , every few days BY EMAIL ,with everything on the market within our price range .
She was also knowledgable about all local resources ----we used all her referrals for the work we needed done . The people she recommended did good work at reasonable prices
you are welcome to contact us if wanting more information

I have recommended Alisa to many of my friends. She sold us our house and was the perfect combo of super personable and appropriately aggressive when the time was right to find us the perfect house. She also told us which houses she did not think were well suited for us which I appreciated. Alisa is deeply invest in her local reputation and is very involved in community causes, particularly our public schools as a BCE business sponsor. Can't recommend Alisa enough!
– Sari Mcconnell
I have worked with Alisa for quite some time now. She has been our family realtor for several years. We have purchased and sold homes with her on the Peninsula. We have been completely satisfied working together with Alisa.
– Caf_ Roma Owners, Irene & Frankie Gonzalez, Burlin
Alisa is our go-to real estate professional in the mid-Peninsula area. She found us wonderful homes that suited our situation perfectly two different times. She also sold homes for us within days of hitting the market in two entirely different selling markets!
Alisa listened and kept us informed every step of the way, finding houses perfect for us when we couldn't find any. She has a remarkable ability to think about home sales strategically and market to the buyer profile most likely to give top dollar for a house. She always goes above and beyond to get the job done. We definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and we will hire her again.
