"I am a first time homebuyer, and navigating the challenges of the Bay Area market seemed like a daunting task, let alone during the global pandemic in 2020. I was referred to Rosa by my parents, who had also worked with her on a previous transaction, and I couldn’t be more happy with how the process turned out. I worked with Rosa for a period of over six months until we found a property that was the right match. We began by evaluating the types of properties I was looking for, and a range of locations that fit within my budget. She was very knowledgable about the locations in the Peninsula that would best suit my needs, and had a great insight onto how the current market trends were affecting these areas. With her guidance, we identified a number of communities and began looking at properties. Rosa went above and beyond to help me be as informed as I could be throughout every step of the homebuying process. She did an excellent job helping me navigate the ins and outs with everything from communicating with the sellers and the seller’s agents, understanding the disclosures, and writing competitive offers. We looked at and made offers on a number of properties and Rosa took great care working with me and the seller’s agents to put my best foot forward on every offer we drafted. Once we found the property that was right for me, I was able to move forward very quickly with her help. She is a fantastic negotiator, and we were able to reach an agreement with the sellers on the property that I was very happy with. In addition, she was extremely efficient and organized, and worked daily during the escrow process with all parties to ensure a speedy and smooth close without any issue. I would highly recommend working with Rosa to anyone looking to purchase a property in the Bay Area in 2021 and beyond."

"Without Rosa, we wouldn’t have been able to find the perfect first home in the Bay Area. She helped guide us through every step in the process, was very responsive to our questions along the way, and provided all the information we needed to narrow down our choices. Her ability to gather all the digital documents very quickly helped us expedite the process when we found the right home and close quickly during the COVID-19 pandemic, while taking all the necessary precautions when we visited the homes. We’re very grateful she was our realtor and would happily recommend her to friends & family."

"Rosa was a delight to work with. She worked diligently to find me an apartment that met my many requirements, at a time when there was little inventory on the market and my timeline was ridiculously tight. I was ready to put my things in storage, when she encouraged me to look at an apartment close to where I currently live. It was a great match and I move this week. The apartment was listed by owner, but Rosa still encouraged me to look at it regardless of the fact that she wouldn't earn a commission. She was perhaps even more excited about the unit when we viewed it! It was a breath of fresh air to work with someone down to earth, very personable and whom I felt I could trust. I will certainly refer Rosa to friends when they have real estate needs, and contact her when I have any myself."

"For a great experience on selling your house we had the best Compass Real Estate Agent. Rosa Baltodano took the stress away the minute we sat down with her. We wanted her to sell our house that we loved so much. She followed through on every inch of the way throughout the process in selling our house and buying another house. Through this COVID-19 pandemic she took the extra precautions of making sure we were protected at all times during all appointments of clients who wanted to view the house. She wiped down after every client left which made us feel safe and assured of our safety. She was always available for us 24/7 on her cell phone whenever we called or even had questions, we weren’t sure of. Rosa kept us informed throughout the whole process of selling our house and buying our dream house which made us very comfortable. We would highly recommend for anybody who needed their house sold or looking for a house to hire this awesome lady. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts."

"Rosa Baltodano helped me find a home for myself and my daughter during a very stressful period in our lives. When I started house shopping, I thought I would have to settle for whatever I could get. Instead, Rosa found me a beautiful house in the Rose Garden, my absolute dream neighborhood. By moving quickly and decisively on the new listing, and by very effectively convincing the sellers to accept my offer over competing ones, I was able purchase a home which is ideal for my family. Rosa excels at both the personal and the professional aspects of real estate. I am very pleased to be able to recommend her to others."

"Rosa Baltodano did a great job in all phases of selling my house. She was especially great at staging my house for sale and marketing it in creative ways. Communication was important to me during the sales process and Rosa did an excellent job of keeping me informed at each step along the way. More importantly, she took the time to explain how the process would unfold and they were very responsive to my questions as the process progressed. Additionally, Rosa made excellent use of technology to communicate with me, market the house and to facilitate signing of the myriad disclosures and contracts that are required to sell a house. Moreover, Rosa was sensitive to my personal preferences regarding when and how to show my house and was able to show my house at times that maximized potential buyers while being convenient for me. Most importantly Rosa is trustworthy, and I always felt she was acting in my best interests at all times."
