Simone Koga has translated a childhood spent on the move with her hard-working parents into a passion for helping her clients in the San Francisco Bay area find their perfect home base. A first-generation American, Simone’s Brazilian immigrant parents instilled in her a strong work ethic, which initially led her to a career as an emergency room nurse. The critical thinking skills and levelheadedness that were assets to her in that context have also served her well in real estate.

Simone has the utmost respect for her clients and seeks to empower buyers and sellers, translating up-to-date market information into winning strategies so that they feel confident in making these weighty decisions. Buying a home is as much about a true lifestyle fit as anything. Simone believes in the power of the right home to be a refuge, and will work with clients to refine what they’re looking for, and how and where to find it. Sellers can equally rely on her expert guidance, taking the mystery and the anxiety out of the process. Offering transparency and a keen marketing sense, Simone will work tirelessly to ensure a return on your investment.

Simone rocks! Super attentive and detail oriented. Definitely the person you want when looking for real estate!!
Simone knows her stuff and is super responsive. I've asked her to help me find a house twice and I'm certain I'll do so again.
Buyer
Simone was just the right real estate agent for us. She is very knowledge and explained the process in detail, advised us on the areas to focus our search, shared detailed comps, and kept us up to date every step along the way. We had tons of questions and Simone was very timely in responding to all of them. We are now new homeowners thanks to Simone and would whole-heartedly recommend her to any of our friends, family and collogues!
Buyer
My wife and I were not easy buyers to work with. We had no idea what we were doing, we lived across the country, and we were unsure of what and how much we should expect and could ask of our agents. As such, we began our house hunt with the first agent we were introduced to and, unfortunately and after several months, formed the impression that we were essentially being left to fend for ourselves. Not knowing whether this was normal, we started asking around and, when we spoke with a family friend that is in the real estate business, our first question was "What can we fairly expect from our agent?" The answer to that question was simple, "A lot." Looking back at our experience, Simone delivered on that expectation and made what had been a trying and stressful process into one that was fun and - critically given the market - successful.

Among the points that I would deem notable about our experience were Simone's honesty in giving us feedback about the neighborhoods and houses that we were looking at on the basis of photographs and Redfin data (both helpful, neither of which tell the whole story). She also took the time to learn about what we wanted and proactively suggested properties that may have escaped our attention or been passed over on the basis of factors having nothing to do with the house (e.g. poor staging, bad photographs, etc.).

Most significant, however, was her help in getting us from the offer through closing. To say that we had a "difficult" time with both our lender and the escrow company would be an understatement. A better description might be that both seemed to be "actively trying to frustrate and delay the sale." Absent Simone's shepherding of both to make sure the deal was done, I am less than certain that we would now be in our perfect house.

Thank you, Simone!

Simone is awesome. She advocated for us and explained every step of the house- hunting process. We had worked with a different agent prior to Simone and had no luck after making many offers. Once we started working with Simone, the second home we offered on became our new home! Would absolutely recommend and work with Simone in the future.

I could not ask for a more perfect realtor. She knew a lot of information. She was not pushy at all. She kept me realistic about expectations. And I thought she was so warm and thoughtful. In the end I bought something I love and had a very pleasant experience.
