"From the start, we knew that Sheila Gilchrist would be a hard-working, honest, and professional real estate specialist who would do everything in her power to see that we could get the best possible offer for our family home. She knew the market, the upcoming trends, and exactly what we needed to do to get our house ready to sell. I’m still amazed at just how much she rolled up her sleeves and never, ever, stopped working until we signed the closing papers. Our home was on the market for four days with multiple offers, well above what we imagined. If you want the best real estate agent in the Bay Area, do yourself a favor and choose Sheila; you just won’t regret it! PS: if you want to get your home ready to sell faster, consider Compass Concierge. We did and it was a hassle-free option to prepare our home for getting top dollar."" - Keith and Gina B.

"We couldn't be happier with the outstanding support and expertise of our Compass agent, Sheila Gilchrist, whom we met at an open house. From the very beginning, we knew Sheila was more than just any other real estate agent we have engaged in the past. Her warmth and approachability instantly put us at ease, and over time, our relationship with her evolved into a genuine friendship. Though the initial house didn't work out, Sheila reassured us that something better was waiting for us, and she absolutely delivered on that promise. Sheila’s dedication and hard work were truly commendable. Within just a month, she amazed us by presenting a fantastic array of properties that not only met, but exceeded our expectations. She had an innate understanding of what we were looking for, and her attention to detail was impeccable. Throughout the entire process, Sheila navigated us through each step with ease, making the whole experience smooth and stress-free. Her extensive knowledge of the market and professionalism were evident in every interaction, giving us the confidence that we were in the hands of an experienced expert." - Jonathan and Jamie

"Sheila is the best! She helped me buy my first house. As a first time homebuyer, I did not know a whole lot about the process. Despite all of that, Sheila’s knowledge and know-how of it all made the experience so easy and enjoyable, especially for a first-time home-buyer like myself. She is quick to respond, always happy to help, and the most supportive and joyful. Sheila always took the time to be patient and honest with me and explain everything in a way that was easy for me to pick up! I recommend Sheila whole-heartedly! Thank you again for everything!" - Jimmy T.

★★★★★
"Words cannot express how thankful we are that we were referred to Sheila to buy our house. From the first conversation, we knew Sheila was the woman to get the job done. She started working immediately and broke down every step of the process so that we fully understand what was going to happen and made us feel comfortable. She is efficient, readily available, and always communicative. Sheila is willing to go over as much or little details as you want and makes you feel like you’re always her priority. We are so thankful for working with us and the friendship we gained throughout the process. Thank you Sheila for everything!" - Maddy P.

★★★★★
"Sheila guided us thoughtfully and carefully for our first time as homebuyers. She took the time to know what we were looking for and directed us to the best neighborhood and situation for us. She guided us through the entire process with a knowledgeable, reliable demeanor and great care for our family. During the escrow process, Sheila stepped up and fought for our interests during an unexpected problem. Her strategic and proactive work meant that we met our aggressive timeline and were able to close and move in when we hoped. We are thrilled to have bought our first home! When we found out we were going to become a family of four, we knew we wanted and needed more space. We called Sheila, who started going to work on our behalf right away. Just three and a half months after that first phone call, we were moving into our first home!" - Stacey and Bryan

★★★★★
"I would like to formally thank you on behalf of the Chow Family and my fiancé Amina on all the hard work you did for us to get us our very first home. You helped us not just look for a new home but provided us everything we needed to make our lives better, contacts for home improvement as well as options for the home warranty. We would also like to thank you for following up and keeping in touch even after the sale was finalized. From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful for your services and would recommend you to any and all our friends that plan to look for a new home in the Bay Area." - Peter C.

★★★★★
"As first time home buyers, Sheila helped guide us through every step of the home buying process! She continuously educated us on the current housing market conditions, networked on our behalf to find homes that fit our criteria, sifted through every disclosure detail and walked us through every single document and home tour. Sheila is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, dedicated to her clients and just an all around wonderful person to be around. We would highly recommend Sheila to anyone!" - Paige and Jon

★★★★★
"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.
