I highly recommend Mia Bravo-Canales as a real estate agent. After living in SF for many years, picking a real estate agent to help find and purchase a home in Marin was a major decision. We considered several agents, but we picked Mia, and I am so glad that we did. We wanted someone who is knowledgeable, attentive, and responsive, but not pushy or arrogant. And that is exactly who we got! When we first met, Mia came prepared and listened attentively to understand our needs, tastes and price range. She helped us find a variety of homes for sale that we liked, even a major contender that was not listed on the MLS or sites like Redfin. She showed up every single time we looked at a house, and consistently engaged with the seller’s agent to ask questions and discover helpful information. Mia promptly returns texts and phone calls, and made us feel like we were her most important client.
When it came time to make an offer, we needed to move fast, and Mia did not disappoint. Late on a Sunday night, she put together the offer, coordinated with our loan broker, and made sure everything was set for Monday morning. Once in contract, she seamlessly recommended, coordinated and personally-attended the inspections. When the structural inspection turned up an issue, she expertly negotiated a price reduction on our behalf. She made sure to go through all of the seller’s disclosures with us, and even helped discover and get corrected a mistake in the title report. She diligently worked with the loan broker and escrow agent to ensure a smooth close and, after close, went the extra-extra mile by helping to recommend and coordinate contractors.
Wow, Mia really knocked it out of the park. Because of her hard work, we got the best possible price on a home that we love. She is a fantastic agent, and the next time we buy or sell a home, she will be our first choice to represent us.

It is my pleasure to recommend Mia and Marla as a great real estate agent team for any individuals/families selling their homes as they did an awesome job helping me sell my condo in San Francisco. Mia and Marla are personable, communicative and responsive. They have great taste when it comes to home staging and preparing for open houses. They guided me through the entire selling process and ensured a smooth and stress free home selling experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell or buy and I am looking forward to working with them again in the future!

I'm honestly so grateful to have worked with Mia on my journey to buying my first home. I knew straight away with her that she's someone I could trust. She was incredibly patient, attentive, and caring through the whole process, and really took the time to help me find a home that fit all my needs (which at my budget, wasn't easy!). Mia is such a warm personality, delivers even the hardest news with kindness and humor, while remaining completely professional. And don't let her kindness fool you! She'll work hard to get you the information you are looking for, and never leave you feeling unattended to. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area, and definitely look forward to being able to work with her again in the future!

I can't recommend Mia highly enough. She had her work cut out for her, as I'm a first-time buyer who knew NOTHING about the challenges of purchasing a home in the crazy Bay Area real estate market.
Although she may not have been doing this as long as another agent I could have chosen, Mia brought enthusiasm, patience and serious skills to the endeavor. She answered every question I had promptly, thoroughly and with good humor. She NEVER made me feel like I was being a pain, even though I probably was.
Mia worked with me through several pivots in what I had thought were my goals, always listening and guiding me to the next right step. Most importantly, through the trust I had developed in her, Mia guided me through the final, delicate and nerve-wracking offer negotiation process so that I now have a home I LOVE at a price that feels right.
If you're looking for an agent with impeccable integrity, intelligence, understanding and savvy, then you can't do better than Mia.

From beginng to end of the process of selling our condo, Mia was a godsend! Her recommendations and tips leading up to selling are what we know got us top dollar. Mia was always available by phone, email, or text message; and made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Everything was so seamless and easy because of Mia!

My brother and I just sold our parent's beautiful house in Tiburon and we had the best service from Mia. Every detail was looked after and all our questions were answered promptly. That's professionalism. Marketing was intelligently outlined and she came up with a great plan that showcased the property. Mia successfully navigated all the ups and downs of the sale process. My brother and I highly recommend Mia!
