I hired Renee to list my house in Bernal Heights and she performed flawlessly. She was meticulous in her management of stagers, cleaners, photographers, etc. and got the house to market right on schedule. Most importantly, her pricing strategy netted me over asking! If you are looking for a phenomenal realtor, drop everything and call Renee! - Stuart W.

My Co-Trustee and I can't say enough good things about Renee and the way she handled everything about the sale of the triplex. From prep of the property, managing the existing renters on two of the three levels, to staging, initial pricing, managing open houses during semi-lockdown due to covid (May 2021), and final sale. Renee is well versed at handling the overwhelming requirements of selling a property in SF. She made sure that we understood every aspect of the process and gave us 110% effort in marketing. The property was on the market for a week, we received 10 offers over asking and sold 31% over list price. She is thorough, efficient, professional and delightful to work with. You will not find a better real estate agent anywhere. - Lori L.

I met Renee when she was the agent selling a house in Glen Park. I felt comfortable with her from that first meeting and couldn't be happier with her services. She explained everything clearly and patiently, laid out a plan as to how things would go and she was spot on. Her team did a great job of prepping the house for sale and her plan for listing and showing was completed without a hitch. Her knowledge and experience are invaluable. She made a potentially stressful situation so easy! Wish I could give her more than five stars! - Ann S.

As the five stars indicate, Renee Gonsalves is as good as it gets. Wait a minute, she goes way over and above that! Before listing my house for sale, we developed a strategy to take it through the entire process. I admit that I was slow, indecisive, and downright scared. My house was the first I ever bought, I had it for 27 years, and was completely ignorant of the process. Renee showed immeasurable patience, provided hand holding when I needed it, and got my house and me right through to a smooth sale, Her recommendations on upgrading and staging were right on. She negotiated the sale in such a way as to garner way over the asking price. My only regret now is that I've moved out of the area, and can't take advantage of her professionalism and personal touch in my next purchase. Love her!! - Kathleen C.

Renee did an AMAZING job assisting me in selling a house. Her suggested timeline was right on point from beginning to end. The entire process was smooth and stress free. I could not be more pleased with her attention to detail and going above and beyond to help with things that were not even close to a realtor's job description. The staging and photographs were beautiful. Her pricing was perfect and allowed for multiple offers. I have never sold a house before and I am so thankful for Renee's guidance and support through it all. If you are buying or selling a house, I cannot recommend her enough. Seriously! - Susan T.
