Mia made my first real estate purchase a fantastic experience!
Her knowledge of the market and ability to negotiate with the seller was key in getting me the loft of my dreams. Even during a global pandemic, her deep understanding of the bay area market helped calm my concerns and made the process simple and straightforward. She outlined all of the steps for me, and her expertise was key in keeping me focused on each phase of the buying process.
Her approach when working with other agents was the right mix of aggressive and collaborative; she navigated the market for me and kept my "wish list" (and my budget) top of mind when recommending purchase options. Even after the sale was final she has been a valuable resource in helping me get answers to any remaining questions I have had.
I HIGHLY recommend Mia for any bay area real estate transaction and can't wait to purchase a second property with her help!

Working with Mia on our San Francisco rental property was an absolute pleasure and one of the best experience ever from the very beginning to an end. Going through tenant change can be stressful but speaking with Mia on my first day, she immediately put me at ease. Not only she was knowledgeable about the market and the area where the property was located, and very thorough and detail oriented but also she was so approachable and sweet, made me very comfortable sharing any questions, concerns about your property and multiple “what if” scenarios screening tenants. Being an out of state home owner, you really need someone who can trust and can maintain close communication and Mia went above and beyond with all my needs. With that we were able to find a great tenant within a week from the date we posted ! yes a week!! She is such a genuine and professional Real estate agent who is very hard to find these days and I feel I was so luck to work with her and I look forward to working with her for many more years to come.

Mia is amazing in every way and helped me secure a tenant in advance of even needing to officially post my rental! She has an incredible network which is invaluable for her clients and looks after every detail - no matter how small - with deep attention and care. I will definitely be working with her again!

Mia is so wonderful to work with. She helped us with every step of the home buying process, and we are still in touch. She has great energy and was tireless in finding new homes to look at and meet us there to check them out. Once we chose a house we worked closely to make an offer, a counter offer and then to close on the house. I highly recommend Mia to anyone looking for a home in the Bay Area!

Mia is fantastic. She is very patient and helped us find the right house in the tough SF/East Bay competitive market. She showed us places in SF, Oakland, Berkeley & El Cerrito. When we zeroed in on one in Berkeley, she was super helpful in the offer/counteroffer process. We lucked out that the Seller accepted our 2nd counteroffer. The escrow process was quick and easy with all the e-docs available now. Our closing process was a little rocky, but that wasn't Mia's fault. We accepted the Seller's choice for escrow agent and she was terrible. Next time I would insist on an escrow agent or company that we were familiar with.

Mia and Marla were awesome! Their commitment to excellence is unmatched! We were on the hunt for houses from Daly City to east Oakland to Marin and these ladies covered a lot of ground for us. They know the area and have been in the business for a long time so they give very thoughtful advice. Mia and Marla are also very responsive which is so important in this very competitive environment. We’re so thankful to have Mia and Marla as our realtors! If you’re looking for highly motivated, personable and detail-oriented professionals, look no further. You can always count on this power couple to deliver top notch customer service while securing the home of your dreams in this highly competitive real estate market!
Mia and Marla, thank you so much for everything you have done for us! We really appreciate it!

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!
– Sean and Leslie Mitchell
Mia did a fabulous job of marketing my condo and selling it quickly. She was always available to answer my questions and address any concerns. Mia handled the entire process with professionalism and diligence. I have already recommended her to my friends and colleagues!

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!
