— Mark & Susan

she’s the best

"Sandy has represented me as both a house buyer and a seller over the many years, and there is no other agent I would ever use. She is meticulous with the details, infinitely patient (she needs to be with me!), and is extremely knowledgable about all aspects of the East Bay real estate market. Her integrity is without question, and she truly loves her work and will act as your advocate while always looking out for your best interests. She’s the best!"

— Karen

held our hands throughout

— Eliza & Ian

easy to work with

"Sandy is easy to work with, a great listener and quickly understood what we were looking for. We appreciated that Sandy was filtering out the places that were just not right for us. The resources that she provided were all easy to work with and provided excellent service. Working with Sandy gave us confidence she did not just want to sell us any house she wanted to get the home that was right for us. She wanted us to be happy with our purchase."

— Mary Sue & Michael

she loves her job & it shows

"Sandy is a realtor that has your interest at heart. She loves her job and it shows — we will definitely continue to have a relationship with her for future sales and purchases."

— Wendy & Fritz

we referred her to friends

"We can't speak highly enough about Sandy. We referred her to friends and they, too, had a great experience and found what they were looking for. They even beat out a large number of offers. That is something else that Sandy knows, she knows how to write a competitive offer. She knows the ins and outs of what makes an offer tight and she will always put together the best offer possible. Sandy is great at what she does. She is also just a really good person who is enjoyable to be around. Never questioned her motives and always felt protected by her. This process is so crazy so you really want to feel confident in who is representing you, but even nicer if you can enjoy their company. With Sandy, we got both!"

— Jill & Kathryn

she listened to us

"We felt that Sandy really prepared us for the buying process. Sandy definitely knew about the market and timing involved. She knew what was available. She guided us from homes that did not meet our needs. She was flexible and worked with us and our strategy. She listened to us. Sandy was very responsive and responsible. She understands negotiation. She was able to size up the situation immediately. We have already recommended her to others. We have no regrets about working with Sandy. The biggest benefit Sandy is sharp, understands the market, professional, knowledgeable and doesn't lead buyers in the wrong direction."
