BUYING PROPERTY

What We Do

Let's face it, the Bay Area is an expensive place to live, so no matter your price range the home you buy will likely need minor tweaks to a major renovation to meet your needs and aesthetic. And chances are some trade-offs will be involved in buying a home here, and we will guide you in making those choices.

Because of our extensive renovation experience, when showing you homes we can give you our ideas on what to fix or change, how much it will cost, as well as potential impact on resale value.

We think out of the box to find solutions, so we always offer suggestions about different neighborhoods to consider, ways to structure the contract to suit your needs, and other ways to get you what you want within your budget.

We know you are searching on Zillow and Redfin. We also think those sites offer great search tools, so have fun looking there, or feel free to use our search. But when you are ready to meet with a real person who can guide you, protect you, enlighten you, and to enjoy the process with, then we hope you'll connect with us!

Client Testimonials

Jennifer is truly a pleasure to work with. She is very personable and extremely knowledgeable with the Bay Area’s real estate market. Jennifer found the perfect house for me just before my vacation. While I was away in Europe, she took care of the entire transaction. I can’t thank you enough for all you help!
— Samuel Lee, Buyer
Jennifer is the best! She is extremely knowledgeable and personable and everyone enjoys working with her. Her connections and relationships help her get the best deal for her clients. We owe our new home all to her shrewd knowledge of the real estate scene. As new home buyers she was very patient with us and answered all our questions, even the ridiculous ones. She also offered great advice on remodel solutions in many of the homes we were looking at. We love Jennifer and would highly recommend her to anyone.

To say that Jennifer is AMAZING is the understatement of the year! We felt COMPLETELY comfortable during the whole process. She took us (literally) by the hand and helped us EVERY step of the way! And to top it off - in the end she went ABOVE and BEYOND by calling from her vacation (with a HUGE time change) at 1:30am to make sure she spoke directly to the Listing Agent to walk her through our bid - I KNOW that made all the difference! We are sooooo grateful and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her!
