"Holy *expletive*! We LOVE SF Real Estate Solutions. We were one of their few clients who came to them purely via Yelp (not from a referral) and we were not disappointed. In fact, we were even more impressed than we thought we would be. I've only been through the home-buying process once and my fiancee was a newbie... combine that with the sheer insanity of buying a home in SF in this market and it's a recipe for emotional turmoil and/or financial ruin. SF Real Estate Solutions actually made the process painless and a pleasure.
One thing I really learned through this process is that you have to feel 100% confident in your real estate agent, especially if you are looking for a buyer's agent in this cutthroat market. From the first time we met Cherie, Karen, and Chris, we felt like we were in great hands and, with each subsequent interaction, our confidence only grew. Because there are three of them working in concert, you really feel like you have an entire team on your side and the result is really efficient coordination, rapid responsiveness, and flexible availability. I also felt that it was reassuring to have three experienced people weigh in with their thoughts on properties and offer prices. We really put all of our faith in them and their instincts and the result was winning the very first house we put a bid on (with 13 other competing offers)! Our bid was just enough to win and what we felt comfortable paying. We never once felt pressured, instead we very much felt like we were in the driver's seat with a very experienced navigation system (with a calm therapeutic voice) guiding us through otherwise pretty scary and unknown territory.
Beyond their market knowledge and skills, they are also just genuinely awesome to work with and the kind of people we would actually hang out with as friends, which is an awesome and unexpected bonus. They also hook their clients up with all sorts of perks, including a free session with a CPA/financial advisor to look at your specific financial situation and provide guidance on how much you should comfortably spend on a home, organizational/moving services, and a complimentary house cleaning. These were all just the cherry on top though. We really cannot thank them enough!"
