I believe all successful enterprises are service based businesses and I differentiate myself from other realtors by providing a unique level of service and expertise. Being a real estate professional you must know the market. That means knowing inventory, what properties have recently come on the market and what has recently sold. I am notified of every listing that comes on the market in Santa Clara County, when it sells, and when and if it closes and what it sold for. This keeps me in tune with the markets pulse.
I also subscribe and follow Altos Research Charts. They are an industry leader in real estate market performance research. I closely monitor the areas of my active clients to make sure they are informed of how the market is performing.

-patience, be willing to spend half a day showing us around town plus a few homes.
I entered into real estate after I bought my first home through a realtor so I understand what its like to be on the other end. I consider myself to be a consultant more than a salesperson. I am here to provide you with information about homes, the market, home remodeling & construction, background on different areas, and many other things that a good knowledgeable Realtor should know. You the homebuyer can take that information to make the best possible decision you can on buying the right home.
Also I understand that you are coming a long way for an important reason, so I can spend more than just a half a day to give you a good tour of the area and the homes and neighborhoods it has to offer.

Have been working with them for a year. Trying to find them the right home. She can tell you what the experience is like.
Please send me an email so I can send their contact info directly to you.
-min 8-10 years exp, be extremely knowledgeable/detail oriented about the cities I stated, developments in the past 10 years, whatâ€™s upcoming, schools, etc. be a smart educator!
I've been licensed now for almost 5 years, March 11 to be exact. You can see my DRE profile below, I have never had any disciplinary action against me.
I am very knowledgeable of the areas and developments you have stated. I am aware of what complexes to stay away from, highway commuting times and traffic, school district and boundaries, recent developments and floor plans.
If you still feel you need an agent with over 8 years of experience, consider that most real estate agents in this area sell an average of 5-6 homes a year. In the last 5 years I have sold over 70 homes, that would be the equivalent of over 11 years of experience.
-good listener, our budget is under 600K, pls do not show us homes at 675/700k and push us to buy it. Or push a rundown home for us to fix.
I'm definitely not pushy. The first thing we will do is have some telephone conversations so that I can get to know you better. Find out what are the most important things and really try to hone in on those homes and areas that will fit you best. Once we go out and look at a few homes I should be able to get an idea of what you like and don't like.
