“My wife, Kathleen, and I would like to share our positive experience in working with Renee Ross to sell our home in the Cambrian area. From our initial introduction through close, it was clear that Renee was fully engaged in helping us through the home selling process. Her professionalism, knowledge of the local market and personal commitment helped see us through some unexpected challenges—going well beyond what was expected of an agent. Through it all, Renee’s focus graciousness and high-touch manner helped turn a high stress event in our lives to a largely positive experience. I would highly recommend Renee to any potential clients needing her knowledge, thoughtfulness, and personal care. Note that this is the second time we have used Alain Pinel in the sale and/or purchase of a home in the valley. In both cases, the agents and team support from the organization were second to none. We would definitely use Alain Pinel again.”

“ We purchased a home twelve years ago and Ms. Renee Ross represented the sellers. We were very impressed with her level of expertise and professionalism. We ended up doing more communicating with her than our own realtor. At the end of the transaction we were convinced that without Renee’s interventions we would never have successfully completed selling our present home and transitioning into the home we were purchasing. Over the years when friends and co-workers discussed selling or buying real estate we have been very comfortable in highly recommending Renee. We consistently received feedback regarding their great satisfaction with her services. When we decided to sell our current home, of course, we thought of Renee. She was prompt in visiting our home and giving us ideas to make it more marketable. She was very patient and encouraging as we did some improvements and we felt that she took a personal interest in our accomplishments. Renee is thoughtful and considerate and takes each client’s personality and life situation into consideration. She provides individualized service that is rare and highly appreciated. Renee also provided us with a referral of a realtor working in the area we had decided to purchase. We were very pleased and satisfied with her choice. When we listed our home Renee was diligent in setting up a virtual tour which was outstanding. The flyers she had printed could not have been more attractive or descriptive. We sold our home in eight days, above list price, and will be closing our escrow on our new home as escrow closes on our former home. Renee was key in helping us strategize on the complicated process of coordinating both escrows. She stayed in close communication with our other realtor which greatly facilitated this process. We could not recommend Renee more highly.”

“I have had the pleasure having Renee Ross act as agent for the sale of my historic home on Hilmar Street in Santa Clara, California in January of 2015. Renee came highly recommended to me by a close friend. After meeting Renee I was immediately impressed by her knowledge of real estate practices and processes and her confident, professional demeanor. I felt comfortable working with Renee right away, feeling as if she were an old friend I trusted wholeheartedly. As our professional relationship developed, I quickly learned that Renee is ethical, honest and well informed about recent changes in real estate requirements and legalities. She has an engaging way of relating to people, is an excellent listener, is wonderfully supportive and has a delightful sense of humor as well. The situation surrounding the sale of my home was complicated by two daunting factors: the house required an extensive foundation repair prior to being listed for sale and I was currently living elsewhere, two hours away. Renee called upon her vast resources and greatly assisted me in obtaining competitive bids from multiple contractors to repair the foundation, and also for the subsequent cosmetic repairs that were required after the house was re-leveled. With rare dedication, Renee was at the house when the contractors came for their inspections and was there with me once again when it was time for me to review work proposals and bids. Renee essentially served as a general contractor for me while all of the renovation work was being performed. She was my eyes and ears, and the point person for the multitude of contractors working on the house, many times simultaneously. She responded to emergencies and last minute issues when there was no way I could have arrived at the house in time to do so. The issues Renee resolved for me are too many to count. Renee is adept and relentless at problem solving and does so tactfully and assertively, always maintaining a high degree of professionalism, integrity and fairness. She is realistic about expectations and keeps things in proper perspective when the going gets tough, and more than once she kept me sane and was the voice of reason during some frustrating and difficult moments when unexpected events occurred during the renovation process. Her solid experience, sound advice and willingness to participate were priceless to me throughout the renovation and selling of the house. Renee is an excellent communicator and I could always rely on her to keep me informed about events. Whether early morning, late at night or on weekends, if Renee had important information for me, she would let me know via email or phone. I am extremely grateful for Renee’s continued availability and timeliness over the months we worked together. Renee’s astuteness and experience allowed me to correctly price my home and I was fortunate enough to get multiple offers for the property. Renee expertly managed negotiations with a final sale of over asking price with a happy seller and buyers as well. Saying Renee Ross goes above and beyond in her profession is not nearly enough. The effort, hours and assistance Renee provided me in the selling of my home is unsurpassed by any other realtor I’ve ever worked with. I am extremely grateful to her for all of her expertise, perseverance and support and highly recommend her for any real estate transaction. As I was, you will be lucky to have Renee as your agent.”
