"I have never met anyone who goes far beyond. She has this ability to make one feel so important to her. She runs herself ragged to make selling or buying a property for you, her client, as easy a transition as possible She is #one in my book. I was lucky she was recommended to me." - Jobina F.
"The prospect of buying a home for the first time in the Bay Area is both exciting and daunting. We’re so thankful to Dee and everything she did to keep us focused on the exciting aspects, taking the daunting mystery out of the process, and getting our family into a home we love! Right from the beginning, Dee went above and beyond in every step of the process, working around our schedule, navigating the constantly evolving challenges of COVID, getting us in to see all the houses that fit our parameters, keeping us motivated in a tough market for buyers, and moving extremely quickly to get our offers clean and competitive. Thanks to her thoughtful and thorough guidance, Dee quickly felt like a member of the family, working with us to find what was right for us, and having our best interests at heart. From answering the many questions of first-time buyers, to helping navigate through complexities of lengthy home inspection reports, Dee was a constant guiding light. Even after helping us close on our home, Dee continued to help over and above, ensuring that we had all the boxes checked throughout the moving process, getting us comfortably into the house. We can’t recommend Dee enough, and are so thankful to have had her expertise and support!"-Mike and Selin S.
"Dee went above and beyond what you would expect from any realtor, she worked with us in the purchase of our new home while at the same time got our other home sold. With this being a stressful time, she was always there for us and really acted more like a friend than a realtor at times. We dealt with some interesting situations through this home buying process, through both transactions Dee was always professional and ethical; you could tell that was more important to her than just getting the homes sold. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and we will with a doubt go to her again in our next move."-Jared and Megan A.
" I feel exceptionally fortunate to have retained Dee to help me locate and purchase a place for my son and daughter-in-law to call home in the East Bay. I found myself in a sellers’ market like I have never previously experienced. A list price seemed nothing more than a suggested starting bid for a home in an auction in which one is dept. ignorant of the amount of competitive offers. And that was usually for a 75 to 110-year-old home that was the victim of deferred maintenance for many decades. Yet, listing agents seemed to be able to manipulate the market so as to create an artificial “feeding frenzy” in which buyers would not only pay any price for a run-down property but abandon their right to inspect it so they would have some idea of what they were buying.
Dee helped me keep my sanity during the process, and consistently counseled me not to allow my decision-making to be swayed by emotion. In this regard, she assisted me in doing my “due diligence”, on any home for which I considered making an offer, and advised me to be prepared to walk away from the deal if we could not buy it for an amount we deemed reasonable after doing our inspections. This methodology and advice was clearly far more in my interest than Dee’s, because it resulted in our walking away from a number of transactions upon which she would have received a commission. But when that proved necessary, she was always willing to get back in the care to assist me in locating another home that would suit the needs of my family.
We ultimately succeeded in locating a home in Richmond, CA that we are very happy with at a reasonable price. But the purchase process was not an easy one. It required Dee not only to be my advisor, but my advocate in dealings with the listing agent and seller. It was only because of her good judgement and “people skills” that we successfully closed the transaction.
In short, I can tell you that if you are a buyer in this difficult market, you could not better than to retain Dee as your agent. She is smart, ethical, hardworking, personable and absolutely dedicated to representing the interests of her clients. "- Fred and Patty A.
