Ingrid Burden has actually been a lifelong friend. We have known each other since kindergarten. Ingrid has always been that friend whom you could always count on and trust. So natually when it came time to sell our home in the Bay, I couldn't imagine using anyone besides Ingrid. I knew before we hired her that she was an incredible agent. She has such great integrity, hardworking ethics and compassion as a person, how could she not be great at whatever she does. What I came to realize during the sale and purchase of our current home was that Ingrid was much more than just any great real estate agent. In the area of Real Estate, Ingrid is an effective negotiator; she clearly communicates expectations, has sound judgment and is incredibly reliable. She possesses strong organizational and communication skills, has a winning attitude that embraces all challenges and encourages collaboration. All of these qualities are key in providing and accomplishing a positive outcome whether buying or selling a property.
Her level of expertise ranges from her broad geographic knowledge of the greater SF area, the incredible network of contacts she has built over the years, with also structural and building knowledge. She also has an eye for detail second to none and a strong esthetic quality, and will always have your best interest at the fore front.
Ingrid was relentless in the search for the right property and, once it was found, was equally relentless in negotiating the best possible deal. My husband and I were quickly in contract on a home that had over 10 offers. We trusted her with the information she educated us with and we had our offer accepted. The seller's picked our offer not because we were the highest or best but because of the way Ingrid wrote up the offer and how she presented it. She patiently guided us through the entire process and was even there with us at the title company for our signings. We didn't have one issue with both the sale and purchase of our homes.
I have a new greater appreciation of my lifelong friend than I had before, which is hard to beat. I can't stress the importantance of having someone on your side that has experience, and not only experience but also the knowledge of this ever changing real estate market. She is a true expert and I couldn't imagine anyone else handling such an important purchase or sale for us. Trust me when I say, you can expect nothing but the best from her. You will be impressed.
Thank you Ingrid, you made Dave and I extremely happy.
