Leslie Orr recommends Individual Users


This is the second loan Linda has arranged. Her swift response not only got me a great interest rate but she arranged for a quick signing, and I got into the house earlier than I suspected I could. She added her great patience with me and my records including coming by to get the copies. Could not ask for more!!

Stephen Capper recommends Kenneth Er

Great agent, just helped us purchase a beautiful property in Orinda. Lots of advice to help you know what you are getting yourself into and make the right decisions as well as put together really well structured offers to make sure you are as competitive as your price and risk tolerance allows. Also had great recommendations and connections to vendors/contractors for offer/escrow and post purchase fixes which makes the whole process much easier. Highly recommend working with Ken.

David L. recommends Don Pelletier

Don, again, you and your staff have come through for me in stellar fashion. This is our third transaction together and every time 1 am impressed at your professionalism and commitment to your client. You shouldn't be selling real estate; you should be teaching others how to do it correctly. In the last couple of years, I did a couple of transactions and didn't use you and, to tell you the truth, I regret not using your services. The comparison between other, so-called "professionals" and you is like night and day. Again, you went to bat for me on a price and commission reduction to your possible detriment. As such, I enclose a check to make up for your loss of commission. I've also included the lost commission from the other realtors as I feel you earned it more than they did.
I have to congratulate Eddie and the rest of your staff for how they handled this. Everybody seemed enthusiastic and committed to getting the job done right and on time. The systems you have in place and the checks and balances virtually ensure a trouble-free deal. Well done! I've included a little extra in your check. Please send these kind folks off to a nice dinner on me.
I have dealt with realtors my whole life as my father sold real estate. I have bought and sold several houses and have helped other people in their transactions. I have worked with countless realtors while looking for property, dropping in for open houses, and actual hands-on transactions. I have yet to earn: anybody with the style, politeness, thoroughness, professionalism and care that you bring to the industry.
You want a reference? You can have anybody, anytime, call me and I'll be happy to let them know they could be doing a lot worse than engaging your team.

Brandon Foken recommends Kenneth Er

Ken represented me in a purchase and he did an amazing job! We had a difficult situation with a former tenant dragging their feet to move out and he communicated with the seller's agent and me constantly until the situation was resolved. Would recommend without hesitation.

I can't say enough about The Hornsby Team! So professional and has always looked out for my best interest when it comes to my investment. Sheree has helped me over the years in staging all my homes to sell. Have always had such a great experience working with her and now that Sheree and Connor are teaming up in the Real Estate field I'm looking forward to working with them both.

J Jachna recommends Charese David


From beginning our search to closing the deal, Charese was integral in helping us find our first home. Our experience with Charese started with a great meeting where we talked about ourselves and what we were looking for, and she got to work right away trying to find the right place for us. As  first time home buyers completely unfamiliar with the buying process, we relied heavily on Charese to walk us through each step and provide us with constructive feedback throughout our experience. We had a very specific area and price range, and Charese worked tirelessly with us to find properties and set up showings, and she always made time for us to quickly see places that we knew wouldn't stay on the market for long. One home after another didn't quite fit the bill for us, but Charese always took our feedback to heart. Though our search was lengthy, she kept us encouraged along the way. She earned our trust and always gave us her honest opinion of properties we saw, good and bad. Some places looked great already. Some, she told us, were just plain bad. And for the others, she shared with us her visions for how, with just a little work, a home could be perfect for us. When the listing came up for the condo we now own, we all knew it was special. Charese set up the showing, visited with us, wrote an offer, and got us under contract all within 24 hours. As first time home buyers, we were completely unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of closing on the our home. Fortunately, Charese was with us through everything. She outlined everything we needed to do from a signed contract to closing. When our deal was stalling in attorney review, she reached out to the selling agent to put pressure on the sellers to accept our reasonable requests. And after months of effort, she was the first to congratulate us on reaching our goal and purchasing our first home. Charese was available to us whenever we had questions, day or night, by email, phone, or text. No question was too small or too dumb. It seemed like she never stopped working for us. We would highly recommend working with Charese, and we look forward to working with her again.

Antonio Genoese recommends Eric Kang

Buying a home is a team effort and I couldn't have been happier to have Eric on my team. Not only did he recommend me to a great lender as well to fill out the team, but made the process of buying a home fun and easy. After meeting with him initially, he got a sense of my budget and style for a home. After he sent over our first weekend viewing list, I knew that he was right on the money with the kinds of homes I was exactly looking for. I travel quite a bit for work, so my house hunt was around six months long, but Eric was always ready for me to hunt when I was able to pick it back up between out of town stints. Although the market in the Bay Area can be tough, Eric has a great sense of how to approach an offer on a home and will never make you feel uncomfortable or rushed. I couldn't think of how any other buying agent experience could be better. I highly recommend Eric if you're a first time buyer or seasoned home owner to help you with either buying or selling your home.

Colombe M. recommends Kristin Lanham

Kristin really knows the ins and outs of real estate. She knows market trends in every neighborhood, what to watch out for when buying a house, and makes the tedious parts of home buying seem seamless. It felt good going to open houses, telling other agents who my agent was and then replying with you are in good hands. She was so patient with me and always responsive and available to show me houses. She helped me find and get the perfect home.

Song H. recommends Sophia Niu

Sophia falls under the category of "I wish all people I worked with were like her", and came recommended to us by close friends who had also had the pleasure of working with her on their purchases.

Having dealt with several real estate agents, it is not hyperbole to suggest that she is a super agent. She was highly professional and very thorough in understanding our needs in searching for and purchasing a house. We were agonizing over all the myriads of steps in evaluating what was desirable yet realistic for our needs, including pros and cons, and Sophia was deftly able to help us sift through all of our mind's clutter in a very simple way.

She was helpful beyond just being an agent for the largest purchase of your life. We were able to find a place that fits our families long-term needs at the right price in Alameda, which is seemingly impossible these days with competitive bidding practices being practically standard.

If and when the time ever comes for us to look for another house, we know exactly who will be on the top of our list.

recommends Sophia Niu

Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Bay Farm Island, Alameda, CA.

Sophia was instrumental to helping our family plant roots in a community we love for our children and for our future. Her acumen and devotion as an agent was evident and clear from the moment we were suggested to reach out to her by friends who loved working with her, too.

She was thorough in helping us see and understand the current real estate landscape for the area we were interested in by providing detailed history of how comparable homes moved in the market. Sophia helped us to strategize how we could negotiate well, and she masterfully aided us to secure and close on a house that we were willing to fix up at below market rate in a high demand neighborhood that usually commands bidding wars.

She is an Easy Bay insider and knows the area so well, which she was able to share with us to save us critical time in searching for the "right personnel" for our remodeling needs. Her knowledge of the types of remodeling efforts helped us have realistic expectations on cost and was able to help us understand the big picture of onboarding of owning a house much less painfully than what can often happen.

Even after closing on our house, we are happy to be in touch with her for her help to get settled in as new house owners and couldn't imagine a better person to work with for any real estate needs moving forward.

Julie T recommends Rose Krinks

My husband and I have worked with Rose Krinks twice now, to buy and sell our home in Oakland. When we first met Rose we were first-time homebuyers and knew very little about the process. Rose was very patient and walked us through everything. She always showed us whatever homes we wanted to see, but never pressured us to make offers. She has a great balance of being responsive, without being overbearing. The Bay Area is a competitive market, but with her help we were able to buy a home within just a few months of working with her. When we were ready to sell our house we were in a hurry, as we were relocating for work. She helped us get our house ready to go on the market in just one week. She was there every day staging it and even helped us with painting! Rose really went above and beyond to make sure everything looked perfect. On a tight budget, it was especially helpful that staging was included in her realtor fee. She did open houses every weekend and we were able to sell within a month of listing the house! After meeting multiple realtors throughout this process, I'm happy we worked with Rose and would definitely do so again, given the opportunity

Tom Franco recommends Amanda Bonner

Amanda is a student of her trade. She is a strong negotiator and loyal to her customers. Some of her strong characteristics are her thoroughness to detail, personable and quick responsiveness.
I would highly recommend Amanda as an agent who can provide you with turnkey results and a person “who has your back” throughout the entire business process.

Isabel Carrillo recommends Ivan Lanz

This is my second opportunity to get to work with Ivan Lanz and I cannot say how phenomenal the experience has been both times. Three years ago I was able to purchased my first home and he made the home buying experience feel at ease. He took the time to explain over and over again and answer all my questions. And just recently within weeks was able to refinance my loan and help me save money! Ivan Lanz's expertise once again proved his loyalty to his customers with no false promises. His communication, keeping in touch, following up after docs submitted via email and electronically made the refi process so much easier and stress free! (Now I know why he doesn't use fax...
I wouldn't have it any other way! For all your home buying needs Ideal Lending. Thank you Ivan Lanz and team! You are the best!

Chloe Dillion recommends Debra Pughsley

As a first time home buyer I was a bundle of nerves regarding the whole home buying process. From the moment I met Debra she was warm, friendly and immediately made me feel like I was in the hands of an experienced professional. She helped me explore properties that fit my desired qualifications, and when we finally found "the one", she worked tirelessly to make sure all deadlines were met, and managed to keep me calm through the whole process! Debra is without a doubt a realtor who cares about her clients and your goals become her goals until the very end. I feel so lucky to have had her for my first home buying process. She made it much more manageable than I imagined it could be. Thank you Debra! You're awesome.

The training center did a good job. The skills session instructor was very knowledgeable and did a great job of running the session. It was quick and to the point and made license renewal very simple.
