Yvonne Toracca acted as our agent for the recent sale of our Marina home. We found her to be very professional and extremely thoughtful and resourceful throughout the process. She gave us very good advice in preparing for the sale; finding and overseeing painters for both interior and exterior, stagers, and gardeners. She arranged for all necessary inspections and put together a marketing plan that made the property look irresistible. The fact that we had multiple offers over our asking price and settled for a very handsome sales price is a tribute to her.

Yvonne assisted my client in the SF area list, sell and clean out her property. Not only did she go the second mile, she went the third, fourth and fifth miles as well! She is a delightful person with a very caring nature. This transaction had a number of quirks and she handled them beautifully. I cannot recommend her highly enough. We are totally pleased!

Yvonne helped us purchase a condo and made the entire process smooth and comprehensible. She really went to bat for us and helped us secure a great price for the unit, because she sensed that the seller was frustrated and wanted to close quickly. Her understanding of both the financial and emotional side of real estate made her an outstanding agent to work with. She was attuned to the market dynamics and also understood what we were looking for, and was able to help us find a home that will suit our needs. We plan to use her services for all our San Francisco real estate transactions.

I can not begin to tout Yvonne highly enough. She is one of the most caring compassionate people I have run across in a very long time. She truly wants the very best for her clients and is willing to do anything possible to ensure her clients 100% satisfaction/happiness. You will not find anyone better than Yvonne!!

Yvonne is our “go to” agent. Dedicated and committed to getting the job done! Her extensive background as a property owner, developer and agent proved invaluable as she helped us through a very difficult time with our rental property in the Marina. Yvonne has an incredible network of business associates, contractors, painters etc. She also has a great eye for color and details, which enabled us to make improvements that increased the value of our home and brought our property back to market in a cost effective and efficient manner. From start to finish, we couldn’t be more pleased. We would highly recommend Yvonne.

Dear Marla and Yvonne, This is a MUCH BELATED thank you from the bottom of our hearts for both helping us find a wonderful home for our family and for getting us top dollar in the sale of our condo! You ladies are such hard-workers, and we appreciate the many hours you dedicated to showing me properties and helping to fix-up the condo. You make it look easy and I never doubted success with the both of you on my team! Ryan and I are so happy with how it all turned out. We will recommend you over & over!

The team of Marla and Yvonne has been a pleasure to work with. They organize and stream line the selling and buying process expertly. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty to get things done.

- Yvonne was a great partner during our home search and purchase process. She was knowledgeable, proactive, persistent, always available and well networked. She routinely went the distance to get st uff done. Yvonne applied out of the box thinking which is absolutely critical in order to get a deal done in a competitive market. I encourage you to invest in the relationship and entrust her as we did. You'll have fun working with Yvonne and she will quickly become a friend.

Yvonne helped me purchase my dream house in a market that had me feeling frustrated and discouraged. She was super responsive, thorough, and helpful in finding great properties and helping me to make the right decisions to satisfy my needs and priorities. Yvonne previewed most of the properties and when she found my house, she insisted that I take a look at it right away. Thank goodness I did! Yvonne then walked me through the super challenging experience of obtaining a bank loan with grace, reassurance and confidence. After it all went through, I realized Yvonne had helped make my dream come true. She's an absolute angel. I highly recommend Yvonne and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

As a developer I have had the opportunity to work with different real estate agents. Getting the job done with maximum results in the shortest possible time is always the goal. Marla and Yvonne did that not just once but twice. Their apt use of social media to reach buyers and their personal commitment to the making the sale process seamless got the job done in record time.

Yvonne is the consummate team player! She always had her buyer's needs in mind yet also understood fairness to the seller was necessary to accomplish her goal. We worked through a very trying closing and she did everything in her power to mitigate the situation. Yvonne was professional, responsive in providing updates yet still maintained a cheerful and positive attitude. I know how hard that is to do when you are in a difficult situation, but she did it easily. Yvonne proved that she has what it takes to provide her clients with the highest level of professional representation possible. I will refer San Francisco clients to her with confidence!
