"04/23/2018 Ciena was an incredible realtor! I had a very fast timeline in which I needed to find a house and close in a matter of a month and a half, and he helped me to find and close on my dream home in exactly the timeline I requested. He was super helpful, supportive, positive when I was feeling frustrated, and always answered my numerous emails and texts immediately. My broker also loved him and they worked great as a team to help me prepare an excellent offer that was accepted. You will not find a better realtor! He's the best!" -Megan

"10/07/2016 After months/years of searching in this crazy market, Ciena was able to find me a property that fit my requirements and walked me through my first home purchase into a successful and efficient close. He's easily accessible, always responsive and would answer all my questions as this was a learning process for me. Two thumbs up!"

"06/03/2016 Quite possibly the only honest and transparent agent in the Bay Area. We went through many agents and felt hopeless before finding Ciena. He has a great personality and never failed to make himself available. We are super picky buyers and after a long search we are in a great home. Even after we moved in, Ciena helped us arrange to resolve some hiccups with the home. Would highly recommend! Ciena, please stay exactly how you are and don't let the profession change you. Thank you!!!!"
