We had the pleasure of working with Monique Young from Alain Pinel Realtors on the purchase of our home, and can honestly say that Monique went above and beyond making sure our home buying experience was handled with the utmost professionalism and integrity. Monique's excellent knowledge of our local real estate market together with her patience, attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs were more than we could ever ask for. Thanks so much for doing a phenomenal job and helping us find our home. We definitely recommend Monique Young for ALL your Real Estate needs!!

We would highly recommend Monique Young as a real estate agent. We've used of her services since a friend referred us to her in the Spring of 2011. What struck us is her extensive knowledge of investment properties. Monique has an eye for what makes a property desirable and whether modifications will be worthwhile. Among the properties we have considered, she has pointed out potential safety issues, possible soil movement, spongy floors, traffic considerations, school performance, relevant comparable prices, possible code violations, and neighborhood reputation. She will sit with us and calculate the potential rate of return on a property. Her own code of ethics is excellent, and she will take the time to report any ethics violations she comes across. Monique also is skilled in making strong offers that stand out yet are not over market value. She will contact the seller& their agent and discover what the seller values and capitalize on it. Once we have an accepted offer, Monique is far from done. She makes sure that financing and inspections take place and she will negotiate to our best interest in handling any further issues. She will even be a resource in finding a renter if requested. We are always kept informed, and Monique is diligent in following up. Because of Monique Young & her efforts and clear understanding of what we are looking for, our purchases have been lucrative both in terms of cash flow and long term appreciation. Our friends are now successfully using her services. We believe Monique truly exemplifies the best in a real estate professional.

We utilized Monique Young as our Real Estate agent to prepare and sell our residential rental property. She provided excellent services from determining the appropriate market value of the house, recommendations for remodel to maximize our investment, keeping within budgetary constraints and showcasing the property at its best. The open house commenced smoothly and was highly successful. With multiple bids, the property was negotiated and sold at a much higher price within a week. Monique handled the transaction smoothly to completion. We appreciated her efficiency and professionalism.

I highly recommend Monique. Monique is an experienced professional. She guided me through the entire home buying process since this was a first home for me. Monique understood what I wanted in a home and showed me properties that were well-suited for me. Monique is extremely responsive and on top of all the moving parts in the process. She was able to negotiate a great deal for me for the property I ended up purchasing. Monique also assisted in finding me a wonderful lender. Monique knows the ins and outs of selling and buying properties in the Bay Area. I am so grateful for Monique& her expertise, professionalism and tenaciousness. My entire process, from viewing my new home to closing escrow took 32 days! I highly recommend Monique if you are looking to buy or sell a property. She is also a really nice person!

I have known Monique for several years and feel she is not only high professional and knowledgeable in her field, she is a person of integrity!

Monique is the best!
