Sophie & Scott did an absolutely amazing job representing us with the sale of our home. From our first meeting to closing, we appreciated their professionalism, expert knowledge and all around enthusiasm. Their guidance with staging and attention to detail really showcased our property, and, as a result, we had multiple offers and a sold home within four days! Oh, did I mention..56K over asking price! Beyond happy!! They truly made the whole process stress-free and we will be recommending them to anyone in need of an agent.

Sophie was an excellent agent to work with. She worked very hard when changes happened. She also worked very hard when changes came up. I was never stressed, I knew she had everything under control. She kept me in the loop and always explained the situation in a way that I could understand. I can’t say enough good things about Sophie!

I had a great experience with Sophie when she sold my home. She set very clear expectations, communicated regularly and smoothly kept the transaction together when the buyer was being unrealistic and demanding. I am so glad I chose her to sell my home. Real estate transactions can be very stressful, but Sophie managed to make every thing seem so seamless and effortless even though my situation was very difficult. I will absolutely be calling her again when we are ready to purchase our next home!
Sophie helped us through the entire home buying process, from location to specifications to negotiations to the loan. Her professionalism, honest approach and attention to details made the whole experience very pleasurable for my wife and me. We spent about 3 months with Sophie hunting for homes in the bay area before we finalized our home. Through the entire process, Sophie did not influence any pressure on us towards closing deals. She was patient, attentive and made us very comfortable.
Her education and successful track record in high technology firms carries forward into her real estate business as she puts these skills to use during the evaluation and negotiation process. She accompanied my wife and me to every home that we evaluated and provided an insightful, intelligent and unbiased opinion of the property. We quickly grew to trust her opinion. Thanks to her keen eye we avoided some properties which looked great on the surface, but would have been bad decisions in the long run. Sophie is also a very smart negotiator. She helped us save tens of thousands of dollars through her strong negotiation skills.
Anyone who has Sophie on their side is lucky. She will go to bat for you through the whole process. She will be direct and honest with you and has your needs as the priority. The previous owners were supposed to provide a new dryer for us as a part of the home sale. When they provided us with an old used dryer, Sophie went out of her way and provided us with a new dryer with her own funds. Kudos!!!
Sophie and I spent over an hour on the phone in our first conversation. She asked leading questions and quickly learned exactly what we were looking for. We met the next morning and she showed us the listings for 5 houses. 4 of them were in the exact 3 square mile area we were hoping to find our dream home in, and 1 that was farther away but offered all of the features we were looking for.
The first house she showed us proved to be the perfect home for our family! It was not in the specified 3 square miles, but it was EXACTLY perfect!! Sophie was able to extract what I wanted from our conversation, not what I was asking for (apparently those 2 things are different…)
We looked at the other houses, but my wife and I were sure we had found our dream home. After talking to Sophie about comps in the area, and if the asking price was reasonable, Sophie called the listing agent and gave a heads up that we would be making an offer. Armed with details provided by the listing agent, Sophie helped coach us into an offer she was confident would net us our dream home.
We were so excited and sat watching the phone…the very next day our offer was accepted!! We had our dream home!!!
Sophie recommended a finance company to work with and with Sophie driving full force, we were able to go from offer to funding in 18 business days! I learned after closing that Sophie had been in the underwriters office every day for a week pushing this loan to fund and close because she knew how excited we were to move.
I can not give a higher recommendation or praise to Sophie. She has earned my business forever, and I am sure she will do the same for you.
