"Working with Monica was truly an incredible experience from start to finish! We put our top floor condo with no outdoor space on the market Mid-Feb 2021, and were VERY nervous about how it would fare. Every REALTOR® we spoke with said we should put it on the market for less than we paid, EXCEPT for Monica who had expert knowledge of the most recent sales and comps in our neighborhood. She was so strategic about our pricing, timing, impeccable pictures and the upgrades (incredible staging partners!) prior to showings. Once we started showing, we immediately got a pre-open house bid due to her deep connections in the SF market. We showed our home for one weekend only and were truly overwhelmed by the amount of interest and offers after such a short time. Monica was a fierce negotiator and got us a price well over asking and well over our wildest dreams. She was responsive throughout the entire process (literally seconds via text) and mobilized the whole compass team and network behind making sure our home got the top interest and offers in the market. A truly incredible and enjoyable person to work with with an outstanding result. Could not ask for anything more and can't wait to work with Monica on our next home purchase."

“Monica was energetic and knowledgeable throughout the process of buying our home in SF. Not only did she help to identify the home, she negotiated hard with the seller to secure a better deal, and provided really useful information about the local real-estate market and the pitfalls of buying, particularly regarding renovation risks and costs. I’d highly recommend Monica to anyone looking to buy a home in SF or Marin County."
“Monica represented us on the purchase of our co-op. And, she has been a great resource as we have investigated other properties to buy. We frequently recommend her to friends. Her deep understanding of the real estate market, as well as her ability to listen to her clients’ needs, makes her a tremendous asset to have on your team. She’s smart, a savvy negotiator, with excellent instincts based a breadth of experience. She’s the real deal: a trustworthy professional who makes herself available to her clients, is motivated to achieve the best outcomes, has a broad network, cares about her clients and, lastly, is someone with whom working is fun. That is to say: We have had the benefit to know first-hand why she’s considered one of the best real estate agents in the Bay Area."

“Monica is outstanding. In an incredibly crowded and competitive market, Monica was able to understand what we needed and showed us the kind of inventory we only needed to see and didn't waste time on the inventory that did not fit us. She is super smart. The house we bought had 28 disclosures out on the third day. We asked what did we need to do to get it, she told us, we did it, we got it. Her relationship with other brokers and the first republic made this easy and seamless. I've never seen anything like it. She's great."
“Monica helped us buy a new home and sell our existing apartment. On our new home purchase, Monica was laser focused on what we were looking for, and got us into see the home we ultimately bought early. She then provided excellent advice on appropriate pricing, and expertly negotiated on our behalf. However, she never pushed us past a price we were comfortable with. On selling our apartment, which was a challenge, she was incredibly resourceful, mining different potential buyers from her vast network of relationships. She also tried different strategies to accommodate our needs. We ultimately ended up with a deal we were happy with. Monica is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She's become more than our agent - she's become a friend."
“Monica helped me successfully sell my condo! Given Covid, everything was uncertain - how to sell, how the market would respond etc. Monica walked me through the entire process and gave me the confidence to prep the home and bring it to market. We successfully sold the home quickly and I got an offer that I was very happy about!"
"Monica Pauli has been represented me both as a seller and as a buyer in the past 20 years. She listed my last 3 three houses and all sold within a week as soon as they hit the market. She also helped me to buy my last three homes. She's very knowledgeable and reliable. She returns my phone calls within minutes. She is also very resourceful, has referred me to reputable professionals I needed during the transitions from selling, buying & moving. I totally trust her, knowing that I am in good hands. Monica is very professional with a personal touch, I feel she cares and treats me as a client as well as a good friend. Highly recommended her."
