"It was such a pleasure working with Sheila! She exceeded expectations every step of the way with her knowledge, professionalism, and her client-centered approach. As first time home buyers in this competitive Bay Area market, having Sheila on our team made all the difference. During the search process, she was incredibly tuned-in to what we wanted in a home and all of the houses she showed us proved to us that she "got it". Once we found a home we were excited about, she guided us not only toward a competitive offer but also a winning strategy - something that we would not have come up with on our own. Once our offer was accepted, she led the charge during our short escrow period to ensure that every single detail was taken care of. Everything was timely, efficient, and so easy! Thank you, Sheila for making our dreams come true!" - Caitlin and Dan M.

"Sheila helped me through my first time buying a home. As a first-time homeowner, there were many steps of the way that I had no knowledge with, and Sheila helped inform on every single step of the way. I felt absolutely safe in trusting her to have my best interest in mind, and I was comforted to know that she would support me in keeping me on track with all the many steps along the way. Being new to the home buying process, I might have been skeptical that I was being given the proper information or the best advice for me when it came to conversations regarding negotiating costs with the seller, contract terms, and anything else. However, that was not at all the case with Sheila. She held my hand the entire way, and gave detailed explanations of not only what my options were, but also what implications came with each option. She guided me in how to move forward with whatever choices I decided on. I also was very busy with my job at the time of putting in an offer and during escrow once I was selected by the seller. I was able to count on Sheila to help remind me of deadlines, and which tasks to prioritize over others in the process - both in putting in my offer and after I was chosen by the seller in how to move forward with the escrow process. Sheila made my first experience buying a home one that was exciting rather than scary or intimidating. She helped me feel safe in the process did so with a kind and patient attitude the whole way. I would absolutely recommend Sheila for a new or experienced seller or buyer." - Hannah B.
