Client Testimonials

"Ed helped us find a home in San Francisco when we were oversees residents preparing to relocate. He went above and beyond our expectations at every stage of the process. Our initial conversations via Zoom and email were followed with an extensive in-person tour of the neighborhoods we had short-listed, explaining the pros and cons of each.

Moving to SF from oversees, we valued Ed's in-depth knowledge of the city and his guidance on how to buy a home in the US. When we hit on our dream home, we trusted Ed so much that we made an offer sight unseen, relying on his site visit and report.

Even after closing, Ed remained helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed in place to move in. We couldn't have wished for a better agent."
- Vasco and Zomo

"Ed is a perfect combination of artistic and analytic, the two qualities that got us the beautiful home we live in now. From the beginning of our journey, he patiently set out to fully understand our preferences and constraints in order to 'personalize' his advice. His great spirit made us feel hopeful even when there were setbacks. Above all, his command of the technical and legal aspects, along with the overall process of purchasing a home, made us feel confident and protected throughout the journey."
- Omid and Hengameh

"Ed helped us buy our first home. He is amazing to work with! He was thorough and patient with us from the beginning, walked us through the entire process, and was very prompt in answering all of our questions. Even when we experienced a few challenges with the seller regarding the condition of the home, Ed went above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal. We highly recommend Ed to anyone who is in need of a great realtor."
- Airi and Kris

"Ed was a pleasant surprise during my open house search. I didn't want to be locked in with one agent until I met Ed, who was the kind of agent that was generous with information while being genuine, and with no pressure. This is why I ultimately selected him to help me finalize my search. Ed is a great listener. He is also a patient and thorough communicator. So I trusted him to guide me through the complex process of negotiating and purchasing a home. I would recommend Ed to my friends and hope to work with him again."
- Mark

" Ed was a great partner in helping us find our first home. We were new to this process and he helped guide us every step of the way. He was extremely patient as we changed our minds, and ultimately reverted back to what we originally wanted. When we finally found our place, Ed guided us from offer to close. He helped us understand what we needed to look for and  how to maneuver the fast San Francisco market. We highly recommend him to others looking to find their new home."
