Broker Associate
Now that you have sold our house on Presidio Avenue , I wanted to say “thanks for a job well done”. Someone asked me why I didn’t list the house and save the money. I replied that a good real estate agent doesn’t cost they pay. I believe that your knowledge, experience and contacts were directly responsible for a quick, hassle free sale. I’m a real estate broker and I could not have done a better job myself.” - Seller of Presidio Heights Home

Now that you have sold our house on Presidio Avenue , I wanted to say thanks for a job well done. Someone asked me why I didn't list the house and save the money. I replied that a good real estate agent doesn't cost they pay. I believe that your knowledge, experience and contacts were directly responsible for a quick, hassle free sale. I'm a real estate broker and I could not have done a better job myself.

– Seller of Presidio Heights Home

Thank you for all your efforts in helping us to purchase the triplex in Pacific Heights . You helped us through what is normally a very stressful time, trying to locate and purchase a property within the limited confines of a 1031 exchange. With your help we were able to purchase a wonderful building that I believe we will enjoy for the rest of our lives. You answered all of our questions and helped us through negotiations and mountains and mountains of paper work that we knew very little about. You were always very approachable and considerate of our concerns. We never felt we were asking you a stupid or redundant question, even though I knew we were. Both of us were drawn towards your warm and friendly personality and professionalism. You made an effort in getting to know us so that you could better determine what type of building would suit our family, especially with our two young boys. We are grateful for the time you spent working with us and we shall highly recommend you to others searching for or selling property in San Francisco.

– Buyer of Pacific Heights Building

As I wait for the plane to leave for China, I can't help but think you made this possible. When I put my house up for sale, I said we're leaving for China on the 23rd of March and I hope we can sell the place and finish escrow in time for flight 805. Selling the place you made look easy: you listed the property at 9:00 a.m. and we sold it that night at 9:00 p.m. Not bad. And as for escrow, we beat the deadline by one week. All of which, plus all your unfailing good humor and wise counsel,many thanks. It's off to China we go.

– Seller of Pacific Heights Flats

I have only the highest complements to extend to Ms. Brooks, who exhibited the ultimate in professionalism. I found Ms. Brooks to be extremely knowledgeable in her field of real estate, and she always made it a priority that I comfortably relate my needs and wisely assisted me in determining how best to satisfy them. She worked for me.

– Seller of Sea cliff Homeand Buyer of Marina Condom

We especially would like to mention how sympathetic, careful and compassionate our agent, Carol Brooks, was. It was an emotional time for us, and she used her skills and tact and got the job done. She was helpful in advising us on what to clean up, what to paint, what to roof, how many flowers, etc.

– Seller of Pacific Heights Home

Carol searched cheerfully and tirelessly for a home for us. She works as a professional and knows her business. I was confident that she was looking for a home for us and not just looking for a deal for her.

– Buyer of Seacliff Home

By staying on top of the new listings you managed to get us in to see our new home before the previous owners had the first brokers open house. By doing so we were able to quickly negotiate a deal, avoiding what very easily could become a multiple offer situation.

– Buyer of Noe Valley Home

We want to thank you for all of your help in the closing of our purchase of (our unit). There were certainly a lot of loose ends in this deal, and we want you to know that we appreciate the organized calm with which you approached each problem as it surfaced.

– Buyer of my listing, Pacific Heights Condominium

I want to extend my sincere appreciation for your effort in selling my home. It was a true pleasure working with you and I would welcome the opportunity to work with you again in the future.
