Lupita L Monroy recommends Paul Anselmo

Retired Language Professor

I have had faith in Paul Anselmo since meeting him by phone because of his humble and clear way of communicating. He is swift and decisive in his manner of problem-solving. The best qualities that Paul has are his reliability and his broad knowledge base. He answers every call at almost any hour and that helped me develop a lot of confidence and trust in him. Paul is also detail-oriented and thorough which made my duties as the Seller seem easy to handle. This process of Selling my Redwood City home was painless and worry-free. I hope you give Paul a chance for all of your Real Estate needs.

MEGAN FLOWER recommends Barbara Slater

I was fortunate enough to work with Barbara on an investment property opportunity. She is a top notch professional who was proactive, incredibly well versed in the market and had all of the connections required to get the deal done, and most importantly, she's a true delight to work with. I highly recommend her if you are even remotely considering buying or selling real estate any time soon.

Ned Zhen recommends Barbara Slater

Software Engineer

It was really great to work with Barbara. She helped me through the whole buying process and gave extensive advice. As a first time buyer, I did learn a lot from her and it took me about only just a month to nail a new house. She was always nice and patient, and it was really pleasant to work with her. Would definitely recommend her for either buying or selling a house!!

Client

It has been a great pleasure working with Sonia to buy our first house! Sonia made everything easier for us, she guided and advised us through the different steps and she updated every day during the whole process. She was always available for us, by text, email or phone, and willing to help with whatever we needed.
Sonia is also very sweet and friendly, and we are very glad we found her by chance.
Thank you so much Sonia for all your help and support!

Ali & Jeff Gerrity recommend Gerrie Phillips

Creative Director

Our experience with Gerrie was incredible. As first time buyers with absolutely no idea what this process entailed, Gerrie was there every step of the way. She made herself readily available for every open house we attended and taught us what to look out for. We learned so much from her and she and continues to provide useful tips, information, and referrals even after the close of escrow. Not to mention, our very first offer was accepted! She's our lucky charm, but we know that luck has nothing to do with it. She is a hard worker and knows the industry extremely well. We shared so many laughs and she made this entire process so fun. If anyone is looking to purchase or sell their home, you need to work with Gerrie Phillips!

Chintan Parikh recommends Mini Kalkat

Software Engineer

Highly recommend Mini & Kuljeet. We bought our first home (first offer!) through their continuous guidance and expertise. In the highly competitive market as ours in bay area, you do need someone with the know how and experience of what Mini & their entire team provides.

E&R recommend Mini Kalkat

Venture

Mini Kalkat was a joy to work with. After reflecting on our experience with her, what we are impressed with the most is that she genuinely cares about her clients. She took a genuine interest in who we are, the needs of our family, and what we were looking for. She is a seasoned pro and helped guide us through the whole process successfully. She demonstrated her deep understanding of the local market early on and was spot on in terms of how to handle the bidding process. After winning the bid, she was on call whenever we needed and was super responsive to our questions. We are very grateful for being able to work with her and look forward to hopefully having another opportunity to work with her again.

Anasua Gupta recommends Hema Lakhani

Technical Recruiter/Computer Software Consultant

I recently purchased an investment property with Hema. The whole experience was amazing! She helped me figure out what I want, and once I decided to make an offer, worked hard to make it happen. Her follow-up and attention to detail was excellent. After the purchase she also supported me in getting the place rented. Hema puts her whole heart and effort into your project - I would highly recommend her!

Christina Hagen recommends Sam Zerarka

Sam was amazing. He expedited every process that could have dragged on, he delivered on everything we discussed on the first day. Sam made this experience of selling our family home as easy on us as possible. He picked up every phone call and I felt we were absolutely his number one priority. He respected and listened to my request, I would recommend him without reservation.

I can’t say enough about Sam. I told Sam that I felt blessed to have him sell my house. He couldn’t have done a better job! He did what he said he was going to do and followed through to make sure it happened. I highly recommend Sam!

Connie Wu recommends Barbara Slater

Physician

Buying a home for the first time is a daunting task, so I wanted to work with an agent who really understood the Bay Area housing market. I first met Barbara at a open house. She was friendly, enthusiastic, and patient with answering all questions both broad and the nitty gritty. Shortly after, my family and I asked her to be our agent. For the next 2 months, Barbara was very diligent in researching listings that fit my needs. We spent quite a few weekends visiting different listings, and Barbara would always be receptive to feedback and would keep our likes/dislikes in mind. When we found THE home, Barbara provided her honest assessments of the bidding situation and helped us come up with the best strategy to get the house. She build great rapport with the property management and helped make the entire process less stressful. We are so grateful to have met Barbara. She truly is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Barbara as a realtor.

Mariko Kimura Biondi recommends Sam Zerarka

VP, Event Prodution

Sam is an incredibly nice guy, and very knowledgeable about the area. He’s warm, empathetic , yet very efficient and got our house on the market quickly. He spruced up the house just the right amount to maximize the sales price. The house never looked better! It was a pleasure to work with Sam, and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

Sarah Haufrect recommends Sam Zerarka

Client

Sam represented my grandmother's house in Palo Alto this summer. He was the only realtor my family considered working with because he's warm and friendly and he knows the South Bay, especially Palo Alto, better than anyone! The house sold in barely two weeks thanks to the incredible work his team did with staging, marketing and showing the property. We're very grateful for his expertise and professionalism.

It was very professionally done and everything was in good order.” “It is so wonderful that we got this completed so directly. I cannot believe how hard you worked on this.

Ricky Ngan recommends Angie Wolff

Senior Hardware Engineer

Angie is a great realtor and a pleasure to work with. From the beginning of the process she takes the time to understand your unique situation/background to better assess which homes are worth looking at. As I first-time homebuyer Angie was able to help me fill in a lot of tiny (but important) details on each place which you won't find from the online listings. She is able to schedule visits to accommodate my busy work schedule and really gives peace of mind during the closing process to ensure everything goes smoothly. She also has a good network of contacts; I had many good contractors recommended by Angie to help me work through the initial move-in. -Ricky N

Vidhya Krishnamurthi recommends Hema Lakhani

My husband and I had fallen in love with a property listed on Zillow when we contacted Hema. The property was in Monterey County - quite a distance from where Hema lives. That was of no consequence. She would adjust to our convenience and take us to see the home innumerable times so we could satisfy ourselves that we loved it just the same as we did the pictures on Zillow. We made an offer and got outbid, but she was persistent and ensured that we were the contingent offer. As luck would have it the original offer fell through and Hema lost no time in rounding us up and closing on the deal. She worked tirelessly to take schedule the walk through and left no stone/rug unturned during the last round of check-up.
She is a wonderful, warm and a very hard-working agent who is rooting for you the whole way. A good person to have on your side. I would recommend her very highly!

Jim and Carol Press recommend Angie Wolff

August 1, 2018
Dear Angie,
There are so many good things to write about you as a person and as our real estate agent for 1345
Montclaire Way, Los Altos. Our relationship started about ten years ago when you walked by our
home handing out real estate fliers and introducing yourself as a friendly neighbor.
Over the years you stayed in contact with us just by stopping by when you saw us outside on our front
porch on rocking chairs and doing your usual canvassing of the neighborhood.
When it came time for us to sell our residence after 20 years, your name was the first for us to
consider and you were our first choice. After our initial meeting negotiating the sale, it was evident
that you were flexible and willing to make our experience positive and fair.
During the process of the sale, you handled a major snafu of a foundation settlement issue which sidetracked
us from achieving our goal to move to Carmel. You referred us to several engineering firms
including the one we selected which was a great fit for our issue. You subsequently provided the
guidance on how to market a house with such an issue and proposed several solutions to our problem.
Together we chose the right firm and managed the completion of leveling the home to make it very
marketable.
You held open houses before and after the foundation repair. Bingo! The house got sold the first
weekend of an open house after repair. You were more than happy to personally hold the open
houses, which kept you deeply involved. It seemed as if we called you thousand of times. Each time
you reassured us in a most pleasant manner, by handling all of our questions and “what ifs”. This
counted for a large part of our satisfaction on the sales process.
Aside from open houses, we consulted together on pricing, which turned out to be right on the
money. You achieved a 3.5% over asking on a list price that was significantly increased after the
foundation repair. Thus, it was not a given that an over asking price would result.
You were there at the final buyer walk through and until the legal end of escrow. You arranged for the
last minute garbage clean up just before closing as we were out of town in Carmel (We had signed
earlier than the buyers). A to Z Angie!
We would be happy to relay our very positive experience to anyone inquiring about working with you.
Bottom line--we could not have asked for a more collaborative experience or one that was financially
more successful.
Lastly, this was an emotional sale. You were very sensitive to our deep love of our home of 20 years in
an outstanding part of the Bay Area.
Gratefully yours,
Jim and Carol Press
Los Altos, CA

David Hoff recommends Paul Anselmo

Property MAnager

Paul Anselmo was the Realtor for the sale of our town home in Los Altos.
He did an excellent job in preparing our home for sale and in completing the sale.

We did a complete remodel of the whole home, including all new kitchen, bathrooms and all new flooring, among other things. Paul managed the whole project including finding and supervising the contractor. Paul managed the project from start to finish.

There had also been a roof leak and Paul worked with the roofer and the other parties to get everything fixed, including the ceiling Sheetrock that had to be removed and replaced.

Another important thing is that Paul was diligent to keep costs under control. He carefully reviewed all of the invoices at the project completion and found many duplicate invoices, saving thousands of dollars.

He has a very good sense of taste in choosing styles that will be most appealing for sale while still being reasonable in price. He knows where to spend more and where to save. Paul was also very proactive. We needed about 10 new appliances and he went down to a competitively-priced appliance store and selected all of them. He made excellent choices.

In my experience, it is a rare Realtor that do the kind of remodeling project that Paul did on our home. Paul did the work very professionally. After the remodel was complete, Paul did an excellent job preparing the home for showing & sale including the staging. The sale was very successfully executed.

Sanjay Mehta recommends Paul Anselmo

Property seller

Honesty, integrity, patience, great communication, hardworking, above and beyond. All words to describe Paul our listing agent for our property in Los Altos. We had negative experiences with agents on other transactions in the past. What a world of difference working with Paul. We had a tenant move out after almost 20 years and the property needed major renovation to get it ready for sale. Paul was up to the task using his depth of knowledge on remodels, knowing what design would work best in the the current market and location, and then proceeding to coordinate with different contractors to get the job done. Start to finish, we were in very good hands throughout the entire process.

Linda & Dung recommend Hiep Nguyen

Hiep is a standup realtor. He was referred to us by a colleague/friend who had used him for a couple of their homes, and we were very glad for the referral! We were unfamiliar with the neighborhoods we were looking into, and Hiep remained very patient with us and educated us about the pros and cons of each neighborhood. He took his time to get to know us as a family, what our needs were, and what they would be (since we have 2 young children). He brought us up to speed with regard to the crazy market in order to help us figure out how to attain as close to our dream home as possible. After 4 months, 50+ open houses, 5 bids, we purchased our cozy home in a family friendly, safe neighborhood with a great school system. His expertise extends beyond finding a house; he also helped us see how it could a home – including possible renovations to meet our needs at every house we visited.
Hiep’s help didn’t end after the house was purchased. He introduced us to other vendors / contractors for renovations, landscaping, interior design, etc.; he even played the role as a translator! His recommendations saved us time and gave us confidence that we were taken care of.
We could not have asked for a more trustworthy and knowledgeable agent. Hiep takes good care of you and your family as if they are his own. Would highly recommend him! And he’s always welcome in our home.
