"I've worked with Gertrude for over 15 years and the level of professionalism, customer service, and commitment is unmatched. You have always been there from the beginning to the end of the projects, never wavering, always positive. I trust your advice and opinion, as they have always worked out. I always look forward to working with you.."- Kevin M., Seller & Buyer

"Gertrude has a great eye for detail, is an incredibly hard worker, and personally invests herself in each transaction and showing. My friend recommended Gertrude to me and I've recommended her to all of my friends - each person has told me what a gift it's been to have had Gertrude at their side. Truly, she's a wonderful person and an extremely talented broker."- Seth M.

"Gertrude helped us to find our dream home– she’s a pleasure to work with and very seasoned in the in San Francisco market. She’s a great listener, very knowledgeable and responsive. For us, we felt very comfortable with our close working relationship. I have the highest praise for Gertrude in the offer-to-close part of the process. She helped us to set the right offer, move on it quickly, and navigate it through the complications that followed. In our case, we did have complications – the HOA was involved in litigation. In the face of these challenges, Gertrude gave us solid advice, and kept us current throughout the whole period. She put us in touch with other professionals with insight on our situation; in this way, one can see that she is really well-connected to the real estate scene and knows how to handle the curve balls. Bottom line, she gets results and for that we are personally very appreciative of her efforts. We wholeheartedly recommend Gertrude Villanueva as a buyer’s agent. I recommend you speak with her, and if you feel the connection, you can also have confidence of her ability to get you through the process no matter what."

"It took us 6 months to find the right place. Gertrude never gave up on us (we almost lost hope to find the right place) unlike previous agent that disappeared after 3 weeks (saying we won't find a place with our budget in our neighborhood). Gertrude was very tentative to our needs and always made sure we were the first to see any new listing on the market. And once we found a place we liked, Gertrude made sure we were the first to make an offer to preempt higher bids. After we signed the contract Gertrude helped us find a lender specializing in this type of property to get the best rate. She was diligent and tenacious, combing through mounts of documentation, making sure the HOA acknowledged its responsibility for the repairs needed in the apartment. All along the way we fully trusted Gertrude judgement, feeling that she had our best interests in mind and knowing that she would act in our best interests."

"Gertrude was awesome! I had worked with 3 other agents in the past and felt like they either didn't quite understand what I was looking for, kept showing me properties that were way out of my budget or their enthusiasm waned after a few months of not finding anything. Gertrude is everything you would want in a realtor®. She is very patient, never pushy and works hard to find you the perfect home. I really felt like she had my best interests in mind and wasn't just trying to make a sale. The property I purchased received multiple offers and even though my offer wasn't the highest one I was able to get it because of Gertrude's expertise at negotiating. Not only is she a great realtor®, she is also such a pleasure to work with. I now consider her a trusted friend. I will definitely use her as my agent again in the future and will recommend her to all my friends."

"Gertrude is a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable about real estate in the city. I am super happy with her service to find me a house here in San Francisco. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the city, I highly recommend her!" - Kong

"I don't say this lightly: Gertrude is truly excellent. We were in the market for a new home in the competitive Yerba Buena area, which Gertrude handled amazingly. Gertrude is professional yet tenacious; having interacted with several other agents I was glad to have her in our corner. She helped us craft our offer, presenting it in person, and it was ultimately accepted on our first try. That sounds easy enough, but Gertrude went above and beyond for us. I foolishly changed lenders just after our offer was accepted, against Gertrude's warning that they were notorious for being slow (and therefore endangering our close date). Despite the loan officer's repeated promises, Gertrude's prediction came true. She handled the repeated delays with aplomb, convincing the seller's agent it would all get resolved while hounding the bank to get their act together. It all came through in the end, but I don't want to imagine what would have happened without Gertrude! I highly recommend her" - Solomon

"I have been working with Gertrude Villanueva Itchon for over 20 years purchasing and selling investment property throughout the Bay Area. Gertrude is a diligent and consistent real estate agent. She is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the inside that is working for you. She is an excellent negotiator with a personalized touch. From the beginning to the end of the purchasing/selling process Gertrude is open, honest, transparent and reliable. These qualities are what make working with Gertrude so easy and smooth."
