Wow! I honestly did not expect ‘homeowner’ to be a word which described me in 2018. You’ve taken the most highly intimidating (borderline terrifying) thing I can imagine and made it, dare I say...FUN. Even with so many cooks in the kitchen and me changing my mind/budget/location/wants on you too many times to count, you’ve smoothly helmed this ship through rough waters. You’ve made this experience so positive with ridiculous amounts of hard work, and words cannot express how truly grateful I am. I don’t know if I would’ve made it through with anyone else! .

After 12 years of renting in a room in a flat that was basically the size of a closet in the Mission, my husband and I decided we'd had enough and needed to get a place of our own - somewhere where we didn't have to share a single bathroom with three other housemates and that had a working oven in the kitchen. The first few months of our search we worked with an agent who was challenging to get a hold of when we had questions and didn't appear too motivated about helping us find a place. A family friend told us we needed a new agent and referred us to Aja. The difference between her and our first agent was night and day.
We knew that as first-time home buyers, we were going to need a lot of handholding and help through every stage of the process. When Aja met with us for the first time, she explained the home-buying process in detail, listened to the all of the things we were looking for in our ideal home, and answered every one of our questions (we had a lot of them). She made the prospect of buying a home feel much less scary and daunting.
Aja started sending over listings that fit our criteria on a regular basis and made sure we knew she was available to show us listings we were interested in whenever was convenient for us. For months, she would pick my husband and me up from work at least once a week and drive us to see all of the listings we'd picked out for the week.
Aja has the patience of a saint and was so much fun to work with! She took us to over 100 listings and listened to our many likes and dislikes, which she used to refine her search of potential listings for us. Many of the listings she took us to probably would have suited us just fine, but one reason or another (not enough natural light, carpet flooring instead of wood/laminate, too far from BART, etc.) were crossed off our list. Not once did she complain or tell us we were being ridiculous (even when we probably were). Aja supported us in our search and helped us stay positive and hopeful that we would find a home we would love.
When we found the listing that we wanted to put in an offer for, Aja put the entire offer package together in about an hour and suggested we offer a specific price below the list price to avoid a counter offer by the seller. The seller not only accepted our offer, but didn't counter, so we ended up paying about $12K under list price!
Immediately after our offer was accepted, Aja had a list of all of the next steps that everyone - we, our lender, the title company, and she - would have to complete in order for us to close escrow in the two weeks that followed, which we learned is really quite a feat. She made sure that we all were on the same page every step of the way, kept the process moving along, and did most of the heavy lifting so we could focus on packing and not stress.
We are now living in our dream home and have Aja to thank for making that happen!
Aja's incredible generosity, knowledge, responsiveness, positivity, and patience make her a dream to work with! Not to mention - she has a great sense of humor and is really fun to be around! We could not have hoped for a more amazing agent and will let her know if we ever need an agent in the future!

Aja, our real estate agent, helped us buy our condo. She was very knowledgeable and when she didn't know something she investigated quickly and efficiently to find an answer. We were unfamiliar with the process and we found that Aja has such a great talent for explaining it step-by-step, in an easy-to-understand way. There were times when we felt overwhelmed by the process; however, it was less overwhelming with her on our side. Moreover, she supported us and we felt we were in good hands. She also responded to our emails, texts, and calls immediately.
Aja was available to see houses with us every week and she was patient, extremely organized, and prepared for anything. She would jump into action every time we expressed interest in a condo, more than happy to research it. sometimes without even being asked. She also has a great sense of humor.
Over all, we could tell that Aja loves and enjoys her job. We felt so grateful and fortunate to work with her. If you are out there looking for someone to help you find a home, call Aja - you won't be disappointed!
Many, many thanks, Aja! You made one of our dreams come true!
