"We are so lucky that we found Celeste for our home search. Celeste's good knowledge of the neighborhood as well as a good understanding of our needs made it easier for us to find our dream home. Not only Celeste was extremely patient with our needs and queries, she was extremely honest in her opinions. We'd absolutely trust Celeste for our next venture, and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home in the Bay Area."

"Celeste is such an impressive agent! We had such a positive experience working with her. Our journey with Celeste started years ago when she was referred to us by a relative as someone who could help us search for a home to buy in the Bay Area. Celeste spent practically the whole day with my wife and I, taking us around to see numerous places, to see what was out there. In the end, Celeste helped us purchase a beautiful home in Dublin. Fast forward years later, when the market hit a peak and was just starting to head downwards, we wanted to sell. Throughout the entire process, Celeste was in lock-step with us, guiding us step by step through everything that needed to happen. Celeste did not let any challenges or setbacks dampen her spirit, and she kept us updated on any news of potential buyer interest. Throughout the entire process, Celeste was very professional, was always on our side, and never pressured us to do anything we didn't want to do. In the end, Celeste helped us get a good price on our home despite the challenging market. We would certainly choose to work with Celeste again. Her knowledge of the area and the process is top-notch, and we feel extremely grateful to have Celeste as our agent."

"Celeste was a pleasure to work with. I had a very specific need in I wanted to build a home. When the seller of the land did not negotiate with us, Celeste found us a home that was already built that we could never replicate before it ever hit the market. So Celeste knew what I was looking for and found the perfect home for me and my family. My experience could not have been better."

"Celeste helped us both sell our current house and purchase a new one in the same area. Celeste helped us sort through all of the multiple offers and point out the strongest ones. When purchasing our new home, we had trouble getting fire insurance on the house and Celeste stepped in and introduced us to a broker who could write the policy. She was there every step of the way."

"She was thorough through the process. She is a great communicator and really shows how much she cares."

"Celeste was a pleasure to work with when selling our home In Alamo. She understands the market dynamics well yet was realistic and communicative as we set pricing parameters and negotiated the sale. She brought expert vendors to the table to handle some of the contingencies tied to the sale. She was always available no matter what. I would strongly recommend Celeste to any buyer or seller."

"I would never use any other realtor for any future transaction. Her expertise in negotiating a transaction, her timing and suggestions made both purchasing a WIN, and selling a WIN. Celeste handles everything with grace and a friendly, engaging demeanor. Everything went significantly better than I could expect. WOW!!"

"Celeste was excellent throughout the entire process. She was knowledgeable about the market, gave us pointers on things we could do to maximize our home sale price, and was very responsive to our (many) questions! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home"

"Celeste did a great job in a transaction where she was representing both myself (buyer) and the seller of a Lafayette property. She has a high degree of integrity in her dealings and was able to be fair with both parties. Would highly recommend Celeste to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Lafayette/Contra Costa area."

"Celeste Pacelli did an outstanding job selling our home. Our home sold in under a month’s time and with Celeste's knowledge and leadership the process was near seamless. We trusted her and her associates and they did not disappoint. We would highly recommend Celeste to any and all family and friends."

"Celeste has been a huge asset to finding a home at a fair price. My wife and I have been searching on and off for about a year until we found Celeste. She organized walk-throughs and found us many open houses. Over the span of three months, we found our dream home. Celeste carried us through the entire process and negotiated a fantastic deal with the sellers. I highly recommend Celeste Pacelli for all of your real estate needs."
