Sherean & Vanessa recommend Frank Vento

Frank really went out of his way to help us through our first home-buying experience, and he stuck through it with us for almost a year! He offered sound advice for improving our odds in this market and never made us feel like we weren't as important as other clients who had larger budgets. We never felt pushed to look or act on something that wasn't right for us. He was always available for questions and last-minute requests and continues to be, even after we are in our new home. He's provided great referrals and made introductions to help us feel like part of the community. We won't hesitate to recommend him!

Tijana & Jason Brien recommend Frank Vento

Frank did a great job helping us navigate our new home purchase. He was creative and found quite a few off market listings when the listings on the market stalled. He was always available to talk through questions and always willing to offer his excellent guidance and opinion. During the closing process he was incredibly proactive and helped catch issues most realtors would not have. We highly recommend him and would use him again!

Bob and Jeff recommend Frank Vento

Frank was simply stellar! Always available and on the job helping us think through the process and deal with all the paperwork, staging and coordinating the various repairs and negotiations. His expertise made our selling experience much more manageable and was always there to answer all our questions. We completely recommend his service!

Stuart recommends Frank Vento


Frank managed the rental of a house that we lived in during our one year stay in Half Moon Bay, CA. He made the initial process of signing the paperwork and answering questions before we moved in very easy and that continued during the rental period. Frank was a great go-between working with the owner of the house to get things fixed or changed out (e.g. dishwasher). He was extremely responsive and quick to get back to us if we had questions. Frank made our stay in Half Moon Bay even more enjoyable.

Toni Bajda recommends Frank Vento

As a 5th generation resident of Half Moon Bay I did not want to sell our family home of 67 years in downtown Half Moon Bay. However my co-executor insisted we sell. Frank Vento was amazingl in a difficult situation. He first explained all the advantages and disadvantages of renting vs. Selling.
Frank walked us through every step of the way The house sold in less than 2 weeks and escrow closed in one week; all well over asking price.
It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Frank Vento for all you Real Estate needs . He is very knowledgeable, personable, honest, helpful, explains everything in detail, and gives his clients full attention. Thank you so much Frank, it was a pleasure working with you .

Ariel Moseley recommends Frank Vento

Frank Vento was the perfect realtor for our purchase of a piece of land with a "problem" on the title, which caused me a lot of anxiety. Frank was empathetic, available, efficient, knowledgeable and, importantly, calm. He didn't belittle my fears, but professionally worked through them to my complete satisfaction. I am grateful for both my new land, and the help of Frank to acquire it.

Jim Milbrath recommends Dante Razzini

We had a very pleasant experience working with Dante.
With our busy schedules, Dantes flexibility with scheduling meetings, arranging all the necessary inspections, preparing documents, etc. made the process of selling our house quick and easy.
I most certainly would recommend Dante to handle your real estate needs.

Paula Murphy recommends Frank Vento

Frank acted on our behalf to purchase a home having not even met us in person until after we closed escrow. He kept us informed in a timely manner throughout the process and our two hour time difference was never an issue. Since taking ownership, Frank has helped us by scheduling local professionals to meet with us during our short visit. He has been a wealth of knowledge for all things Coastside. I would have no hesitation recommending Frank for your real estate transaction.

Gary J. Webb recommends Frank Vento

Director of Engineering San Mateo Medical Center

This is the second real estate transaction I have been involved in with Frank. Both have been an absolute pleasure. Hassle free, stress free, Frank is out in front of everything, making sure is a smooth ride. I couldn't imagine working with anybody else.

Senior Manager of Recruiting

Frank has always gone above and beyond. His attention to detail, directness, sincerity and honesty made him a pleasure to work with. We not only purchased our home from him but did not trust anyone else to sell our home when it came time. Thank you Frank!

Renee Reeves recommends Frank Vento

Business Professional in the Tech Industry

Frank Vento is amazing at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone looking to either purchase or sell a home in the Bay Area.

I originally worked with Frank in my search to purchase a house, where he had infinite patience looking for homes that met my needs and supporting me with writing offers. Ultimately I decided to purchase a home outside his territory to be closer to my office, however when it came time to sell my home in Pacifica I knew I wanted to work with Frank again.

Frank was great in helping me get my house ready for the market. He gave great advice on what needed to be done make the house appealing. He arranged the logistics with his referred professionals including painters, gardeners, and house cleaners, and then he set up staging to maximized the beauty of the property. He held regular open houses, had a solid marketing strategy, and then helped me to obtain a terrific price on the sale.

Frank is a great realtor who delivers results, and he's a good guy too with great communication skills and a moral compass that helped me sleep at night through what would otherwise be a very stressful experience.

Frank did a great job! Helped us get the house ready for the market and did a lot more than he had to. I have known Frank for a long time. I find that he is very professional and friendly.

Jenny Goeres recommends Frank Vento

Frank is positive, honest and straightforward. He's prepared with the market research, comps and inspection reports that are needed for decision making.
Frank's added value is that he grew up on the coast so he knows the market and the other agents.
Post sale he knows all of the tradespeople that you may need. You can trust the people he recommends as well, because he grew up with many of them.

jackie aronson recommends Frank Vento

Frank is a terrific, knowledgeable real estate agent. He is so capable, not only with the required forms, disclosures, etc. but he is so reliable. When he sold my home I needed a few last minute minor handyman type things done - he was right there to help. Frank doesn't stop being your agent after the sale either, he supports you both during the sale & after your purchase. I honestly recommend Frank and will
certainly have him again as my next agent.

Ann Marie Frasca recommends Frank Vento

Property Management

Frank listed a parcel of land in La Honda that had been in my family for many years. There were several unclear issues with respect to easements, water rights, etc.

Frank took the initiative and did the legwork to clear up these issues allowing a smooth sale to go through.

He was thoughtful and professional throughout the process and a delight to work with as well. I highly recommend him.

Gary Aronson recommends Ara Croce

Operations Manager

With her many years of experience in real estate, Ara guided us through the process of buying and selling our homes in a professional, yet personable manner. Her attention to detail and organizational skills are exceptional. And, moving into the same area, we feel we've also found a great neighborhood friend as well.

jackie aronson recommends Ara Croce

I would certainly recommend Ara for your next real estate transaction.
Ara is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the real estate industry,
especially the numerous forms and disclosures that are necessary.

Ara was my listing agent of my house I sold and also the agent representing me
in the house I purchased. I really feel it's so much more efficient when you have
1 agent for both transactions, Ara is that person.

But, you know what was really valuable to me during these transactions, Ara always returned my phone calls so quickly when I left her messages, or when I emailed her she would get back to be be so quickly. Ara is a top-notch agent!

Stephanie De Maria recommends Ara Croce


Ara sold our ranch in Moss Beach, Ca and working with her was a wonderful experience. She is knowledgeable, responsible, a great communicator, and very conscientious. She was always available to meet with contractors, exterminators, and most of all us. Her friendly personality and knowledge of the area created a relationship of trust. I recommend Ara highly and without reservation.

Staff Scientist

My wife and I were first time buyers, and Frank taught us everything we needed to know about buying a house! He was incredibly responsive, often writing offers at moment's notice, and always willing to work around our complicated schedules. We never felt pressured into anything, and he was always did thorough inspections of every place we were interested in. At the end of the day, he got us our dream house in Half Moon Bay, and he did it at 40K under asking price! Also, an all around great guy, we still grab beers with him from time-to-time. You can't go wrong with Frank!

Michael Ballback recommends Frank Vento

Estate Administrator

My brother Jim met Frank in 2003 when Frank assisted him in purchasing a home in Pacifica, CA. In July 2016 after Jim has passed away, my four sisters and I traveled from the East Coast to California to clean out his house and have it listed for sale. On top of his desk was a business card for Frank Vento. I called the listed telephone number and Frank answered and came over to the house and sat down with our family to discuss listing the house. Frank also at that time gave us the name of an attorney to call to assist with probate. After our first meeting with Frank, we knew why my brother Jim had picked Frank as his real estate agent. Frank's calming personality and his willingness to assist made us all agree that Frank would be the one we would want to help sell Jim's house.

After signing a listing agreement, Frank prepared a list of items in the home that needed to be addressed. Frank then met with numerous contractors, received bids, and supervised the work. Frank provided timely updates and photos of all the work performed. Frank then had the house staged and after four open houses secured seven offers on the house. After numerous counteroffers, Frank helped us get the best possible price. Frank also assisted in helping us sell Jim’s truck. Frank’s friendship, guidance and assistance were invaluable. Now that the house is sold I am sad that I will not have any further dealings with Frank since he became the last West Coast connection which I had to my brother Jim. However, I know that if I were to have any future real estate dealings or questions about real estate in the San Francisco area, Frank Vento is the person I would turn to and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others since he has made a painful process that much easier.

The Heine Family recommends Frank Vento

Frank is a great agent and so incredibly easy to work with. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful process and Frank has been there every step of the way to make it more pleasant. Frank helped with both the purchase and sale of our San Mateo home and it couldn't have gone smoother. He isn't pushy like some real estate agents and really has your best interest in mind, not to mention he has a great personality and that makes all the bad aspects (document signing, house hunting, etc.) much easier. It has been really helpful that he always makes himself available for house hunting and really listens to what you want and takes you to homes that fit your needs/wants. It really eliminates time being wasted. He knows the market extremely well and helped us purchase a home and nearly double our money in just about 3 years. Frank will most definitely be our agent going forward. Thanks Frank!

Casey Dunn & W. Mitchell Baker recommend Frank Vento

Frank's understanding of the local 'backwoods' was crucial in helping us meet our 20 year dream of finding a second home in the redwoods. To go further, his calm and reasoned reviews of the pros & cons of various properties we looked at helped us realize that some of the characteristics we had focused on 20 years ago were no longer age-appropriate.
Aside from being insightful he's also quite practical - my wife remains very impressed that Frank would readily crawl into a crawlspace with me and a pair of flashlights... and know what he was doing.

Maura and Erik Smith recommend Dante Razzini

Dante took over as our realtor when our first realtor had to leave the country for family matters. It was a little strange at first, but we soon found that we were in good hands with Dante. We ended up buying a rural property that required some thinking outside the box, and Dante answered all our questions with knowledge and confidence. He also found answers to the questions he could not answer quickly and shared several of his key connections with us. The timeliness and clarity of his communications were excellent from start to finish. It ended up that there were three offers on the property, and ours was not the highest offer, but Dante represented us and our desire for the property so well that our offer was accepted after a small increase after a counter. Overall, Dante served us very well and we give him our highest recommendation.
