"Samantha came to me highly recommended by a personal friend in NY within the real-estate industry. I am a first time home buyer who was extremely nervous about the whole process. Samantha helped alleviate a lot of my fears and for all intensive purposes, held my hand throughout the entire process.

She is attentive, patient, informative and protective of her clients. Without a doubt, she carried the entire process through the finish line to the precise time of closing, while arranging for me a deal that I thought was fair to both the seller and I.

She made sure that I understood every part of the process. She explained to me every clause and disclosure. She negotiated for me a deal that I thought was favorable. She worked with the lenders to make sure they understood my needs.

I would gladly recommended Samantha to any of my friends and hope that I have the opportunity to work with her again. Thanks Samantha!

"Samantha was extremely professionalal during our mutual real estate sales transaction. She was a problem solver, had open communication, and did what she said she would. I would not hesitate working with her again and look forward to the next time we have the opportunity to work together again for our mutual clients benefit." - Alexandra

"Thanks to Samantha, we recently (March 2016) bought a home in the Bay Area. This was not easy given the extremely competitive housing market, but Samantha was an absolute blessing and we're so grateful to have met her through friends. She probably had several clients she was working with simultaneously, but Samantha always made us feel like we were a priority. She was responsive to our many questions, offered advice with our best interest in mind, and never pressured us into making a decision that we didn't feel comfortable with. This was really important given our experience with another agent who often made us feel guilty or afraid if we didn't act quickly or spend more money. Samantha works with integrity and is someone you can really trust when making one of the biggest financial decisions in life. Though we hope to stay in our home for many years to come, there's no doubt that we will call on her in the future." - Julie

"Samantha Competente is the most knowledgeable and efficient person I know. She has an incredible knack of getting to the heart of what you want, honing that need into something actionable and finding you EXACTLY what you're looking for. She's respectful of your time and does an incredible job of filtering the millions of options available to home buyers out there. Her knowledge of the market is bar none. I was impressed and I am not impressed easily! In addition to her incredible proficiency she is a warm personality and so much fun to work with. I trusted her implicitly with my real estate transaction and she did not disappoint. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home in the Bay Area, you cannot go wrong with Samantha. In fact, having worked with her successfully, going to anyone else would be a mistake. Call her. You won't regret it." - Esther

"Samantha represented my partner and myself in 2004 when we returned to San Francisco from the Midwest. She found us a great place on Alvarado Street overlooking Noe Valley, professionally leading us to a successful bid in a highly competitive market. She walked us through every step of the purchase process, her cool but comprehensive oversight gave us a lot of comfort in the topsy turvy SF market of that time. Recently, business opportunities took us back to the East coast. We retained Samantha again to sell the condo. She was on top of very detail and managed/coordinated every step of the sale, including helping us to procure temporary housing, staging and repairs/cleaning. Her wise sales strategy paid off as we recently closed at 47% above asking. Both because of these results and because of her comprehensive oversight and personally supportive style, I most strongly recommend Samantha for your real estate needs, both buying and selling." - Chuck

"Samantha helped my husband and I with the purchase of our condo. Everything went very smoothly and we had a great experience working with her." - Erni

"Samantha helped me in the real estate market both on the selling and buying aspects. We looked at many properties but Samantha always maintained a calm, professional composure and always stayed neutral. She's professional, has integrity, and wants what is best for you.

I recommend Samantha for your real estate needs.
" - Selina

"Samantha is a very personable professional who thinks for me more than the sale. She would never push for me to purchase a home unless I love the place. She's always checking with my wife and I how we feel about the home before thinking about putting an offer on the table. We spent over 6 months of home searching and seen over 50 homes before deciding on the one we love. I would recommend to all of my friends and use her professional expertise again for my 2nd and or 3rd home purchase." - Thomas
