Lorrinda M Dekeyrel recommends John V. Pinto

Americas Business Operations - Western Digital

Look no further - you can't do better!

I first had the opportunity to work with John back in 2002 - and from that initial activity he told me that he considered me "family". I laughed to myself thinking, "yes, well that is a nice thing to say" ... but it is now 2019 and I can firmly attest to the fact - that once you work with John - you ARE family to him...and he is devoutly loyal to his family.

John will go above and beyond to insure his clients get the best service and response. He did not rest until I (well - actually my entire family) was happy.

I have bought and sold a few properties since that first transaction - many due to life changes - and each encounter John met me where I was - he listened - he evaluated - he devised an action plan - and in every instance he executed that plan flawlessly!

Whether I was downsizing anticipating starting a business where I needed liquidity, upsizing to accommodate starting a family, adjusting to accommodate divorce, adjusting again to accommodate new marriage, or now - resizing to accommodate a multi-generational living scenario - John was able to work with me to help me realize my needs.

His reputation and his strong network of relationships (also of the highest caliber) play in his clients favor. Be it having past relationships with many agents, sourcing special or unique financing, or a myriad of home services - John was able to support me/my family - no matter what presented itself.

For John it is not just about finding the right property or finding the right buyer - he leaves nothing to chance - and had his hand in every detail (and there are a TON of details). One scenario called for extended rent back - which he negotiated at no cost to me. Another scenario required a unique loan product that he had to "educate" each party on - an no one was scared off the deal! Yet another scenario called for 3 different transactions to all be orchestrated (or else parties would walk form the deal). Though I am sure other agents could also navigate these waters - I feel confident that John does it better and achieves the best outcomes for his clients. In fact, we story boarded almost every option and alternative - so that he goes in prepared - giving him the best position to maneuver in my best interests.

When friends (who were also purchasing) were complaining of being outbid time and time again or losing out to all cash buyers - I cannot remember a single instance of that when working with John.
When friend's properties sat on the market for weeks to months - my properties were listed and sold within a week (and all over asking price). Even in a tough market with a niche property - John and his team were able to find a buyer!

Needless to say - though I feel this is my LAST new home... if life presents a twist that requires another move - I am calling John.

Thomas B recommends Robin Simon & Jack Girvan

Robin is an excellent agent to work with. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things real estate and clearly has a passion for her work. Robin is our go-to agent and has helped us buy our condo (and eventually rent it out) and buy our first house. You won't regret working with Robin!

Saundra S recommends Robin Simon & Jack Girvan

Robin Simon has been thorough, precise,relentless for us and completely knowledgable in all the facets of real estate. Besides the above she has been so comforting when anxious feelings creep up during the selling process.
We would surely recommend Robin Simon to future house hunters and home sellers without hesitation. She helped us stage, coordinate contractors for much needed updating and sell our home of 39 years for top dollar.

She made downsizing so easy for us. Jack and Robin found us the perfect condo and not having to maintain a large home has reduced financial concerns and has saved us about $20,000 per year in expenses. It was a total pleasure working with them. So comforting, patient and professional.

Richmond Appleton recommends John V. Pinto

Application Analyst

John is truly super hero. At least that's how my wife TaLeiza and I would describe his ability to guide first time home buyers like us through the home buying process. We had no idea but we had John. He helped us every step of the way, responding to emails and text at anytime of the day or night. As new home buyers we need someone with experience and John was that person. If we had to do all over again, John will always be our super hero.

Rafael Betancourt recommends John V. Pinto

Seller

I have used John's services for 3 transactions so far, starting with buying my first home 15 years ago. This month John helped us sell it, and everything went very well. His advice on getting the property ready was invaluable, not just physical issues, but lining up early all the documentation, inspection reports, etc. On the Marketing side, he mounted a massive campaign that included his extensive mailing list as well as Facebook, etc. On the sales side, he personally contacted every person who showed up for open house/viewing, and once we got an offer, guided skillfully our negotiation process very quickly. Closing was also extremely painless. Have someone like John Pinto on your side with so much experience and insights of the local Silicon Valley market, I guarantee you will be pleased,

Shayne Lotito recommends Robin Simon & Jack Girvan

Business Development

Robin was great at taking what I was looking for in a new home and finding that for me! It was a unique situation as I was not in state and she went above and beyond through video walk throughs, FaceTime meetings and was so thorough. She had homes lined up and worked extremely hard! She was knowledgeable about all the areas, what would be best to buy as the housing market is increasing in those areas, safe neighborhoods, good rental neighborhoods and so much more!

Brian Caron recommends Robin Simon & Jack Girvan

Attorney

Robin is a first class Realtor and friend for life after our experience. We met Robin and her partner Jack at an open house, and immediately knew they were special. From that point on they took us under their wing and found us exactly what we were looking for at an amazing value. We are forever grateful and they have been by our side with any help we've needed, or for advice relating to upgrades or changes. And in this process, they have become friends for life that we interact with outside of the real estate.

Kate Shin recommends John V. Pinto

John V. Pinto was a listing agent for a house I purchased. I was casually browsing and was not serious about the house until I met John at the open house. John was extremely knowledgeable and very approachable, kind, and funny, and he helped me to see the potential of the house. He was professional throughout the entire transaction, very prompt and smooth communications. Even after the deal was made, John even reached out to my lender and me to make sure that I have a set plan for the improvements of the house & ADU including the financial planning. I have been in this field for several years, and I have not met such a passionate, kind, and humorous agent--John is truly one of a kind and I consider myself lucky to have met him.

John is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. I have personally worked with him on 31 transactions in the past 16 years and he has been consistently fair to all parties. His easy going, empathetic style makes one feel at home, and he always gets the job done. John should be the first choice for all your real estate needs!

Don Dappen recommends Vicky Santana

Retired Chief of Police

I first met Vicky when she represented a client who was purchasing our home. I was so impressed with the way she treated her client that we immediately hired her to purchase our next house. Her attention to our needs were second to none. We used her again when we sold a condo we owned. We had more showings than i could believe. Needless to say, she sold the condo. I highly recommend Vicky if you want 5 star treatment.

Timothy Mark Hightower recommends John V. Pinto

Retired NASA engineer & now Volunteer Pianist

John Pinto managed to push a very difficult project forward quickly and efficiently. Some of his initial genius ideas that helped push the project forward were geared toward helping me find the right path even before making the decision to sell the house. Selling the house that I grew up in since the age of 6 in 1962 was not easy on many levels, especially emotionally. Once the decision was made to sell the house, the ball got rolling and along the way a few key corrections were made that addressed concerns I had, and it was a collaborative team effort that came together nicely for a close of escrow in 28 days. By the way, we had a signed contract within 1 week of the property going on the market. I had not worked with John since 1989 when he found us the house we are still living in to this day. I am so glad I responded to his email in early January encouraging me to contact him for any and all real estate needs. I plan to continue to utilize his expertise in all real estate matters, including in the near future the prospect of selling some country acreage that has been in our family since the 1960's. When working with John, do not be afraid to tell him when you are not happy with some aspect of the process. He takes quick action and fixes it. John is a true professional with broad expertise.

Barbara recommends Michael Tessaro

My husband and I worked with Michael to buy our first home. Michael was very patient and always available to answer our many questions and concerns. He is very knowledgeable, honest, and has many years experience and that definitely came through when working with him. He always knew when to chime in with his advice and when to let us think it through and decide for ourselves. His team is also very pleasant to work with. In the end, everything went so smoothly and we know we have Michael to thank for that!

Ronald DeLay recommends John V. Pinto

John recently sold our home in Napa, Ca. We were thoroughly impressed with John's in depth knowledge of the Realty Business. He displayed all the professional characteristics one would expect of an individual in this business. His advertising program results in an "ENORMOUS" exposure of your property. Additionally, John displayed a unique and creative understanding of financing options that significantly increased the demographic base of potential buyers. If you want positive and timely realty results, we highly recommend you engage Mr.Pinto.

Keith and Kathy Gardner recommend Vicky Santana

Vicky did a fantastic job of selling our home. She sold our home in 4 days and we had multiple offers. When we had questions, Vicky always responded right away. She is a total professional and one of the hardest working woman that we know. We had bought the house with her 5 years ago and it was the best decision to have Vicky as our realtor. She made the whole process seamless for us. Thank you Vicky!

Deborah B recommends Michael Tessaro

Michael was a fabulous realtor. He helped us to both buy and sell our house. His knowledge and depth of experience really helped us understand the market and be successful in both buying and selling our home. Michael is also a very calm and supportive realtor. It was a challenging for us to find the perfect home and it took quite some time, however, Michael was extremely patient and kept sending us potential homes and never tired of meeting us at potential homes and helping us to make the decision that was best for us. For the home we sold he did an amazing marketing job and I felt that our home got very good exposure on the market which is obviously critical to a successful outcome! I highly recommend Michael to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
