Theresa Olney recommends Individual Users

Business owner

Linda Stanley is a positive, motivated, happy person with a "can do" attitude. Her pride in her profession is heard in the enthusiasm of her voice. In 2010 Linda got financing for me on my home purchase. I was buying a foreclosure and it was stressful but Linda took care of all my finance issues and alleviated so much for me. We closed without any problems and Linda was there every time I called on her. Just recently I asked Linda for ideas on refinancing my home and what she offered and did for me is wonderful! I am now able to enjoy my home even more. I have and will continue to recommend Linda to all my family and friends.

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

Buyer

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.

Marcia Rey recommends Benjamin Faber

Notary Public Signing Agent

There are not enough words of praise to describe the care and professionalism shown to us by Ben Faber throughout the entire search process for our new home. Both my husband and I were impressed time and again with Ben's diligent and thoughtful approach to our real estate needs, as well as his wealth of knowledge regarding the entire Marin real estate market. We felt as if he truly listened to our goals and, in so doing, guided us along the right path until we found the place best suited for us. He kept us fully informed, and pointed out the pros and cons of all the properties we toured. In addition, his recommendation of a lender couldn't have been better, and once we moved in, Ben was also able to give us the names of contractors for work our house needed. We will not only recommend Ben as a real estate agent to anyone, but should we ever decide to buy anything else in the future, he is the only person we will call!

Pascal Hang recommends Benjamin Faber

Rigging Supervisor

It was a great pleasure working with Ben. He's punctual, considerate and very professional. Even if we can have casual conversations and jokes, his mind is always on the look out for our needs. Detail-oriented, organized, he's thorough and always makes sure we understand everything that is going on. He knows the market and is an expert at what he does. Even though he's very busy, at no point in time did we feel like we couldn't reach him, it felt like we were always his priority, and that made communication completely stress-free. Unlike a traditional agent, he actually looks out for the client, not for himself. We were gladly surprised when he suggested we lowered our offer, he really tried to get the best deal for us. We highly recommend working with Ben as a buying AND selling agent.

Salesforce Specialist

I recently purchased a home from Ben and was thrilled with his high level of customer service and attention to detail. He displayed a strong balance between the details of the purchase and the excitement felt by both the buyer and seller. He also made a point to get to know me as a person and showed the courtesy and qualities I see in my closest friends. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with Ben and hope to do so again in the future. I highly recommend that you work with Ben if you have the chance.

Kim Bela recommends Benjamin Faber

Helped me rent a home.

I had a very short time in which to find a home. After meeting with me and determining my housing preferences, Ben immediately started the search. He contacted me daily with updates and within a short time I had a new home. Ben was personable and attentive, he responded promptly to emails, text messages and phone calls. Ben presented me with options, complete with Pros & Cons, and never pressured me or tried to influence me in any way. He also has a great personality which makes it really easy to work with him. I highly recommend Ben and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Conor Flaherty recommends Benjamin Faber

Partner at Preserve Partners

Benjamin is incredibly diligent, hard-working, and dedicated. He was always eager to take on extra tasks for the good of the team. Took a lot of personal responsibility to make sure the job got done right, even if it meant more work for him. Benjamin also has a consistently great attitude, and is a total pleasure to work with. He is bright and an innovative thinker. In short, I would recommend Benjamin for any job which he would desire because I know that he will combine work-ethic and capability to get the job done well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Bret Harte, San Rafael, CA.

Ben was great to work with. He was very thorough during the whole process, helping prep the home, holding open houses, negotiating and anything else that came up. His communication is very direct and transparent, and very quick to get you any info as soon as it is available. Very much a pleasure to work with.

Sue Bielman recommends Benjamin Faber

Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Bret Harte, San Rafael, CA.

Ben was able to list, market and sell my home in less than 30 days from the date we looked at offers. The 100 year old home needed a specific type of buyer (not for the faint of heart.) Through his marketing we found that buyer and the house sold for full asking price! The process was painless and having bought and sold a lot of homes over the years I know first hand this is often not the case. He has since helped my son purchase his first home, in Marin, not an easy task for first time buyers!

National Account Executive

Ben is, bar none, the best Realtor I have ever worked with. My particular transaction was extremely competitive, and there's no way I would have secured the property without Ben's assistance. He is a professional from start to finish and is truly driven. I will absolutely work with Ben again.
