“I feel so special and blessed to have been able to work with you.

“They are amazing!! I interviewed five Realtors to sell my Palo Alto home. They were by far the most professional. Both of them are completely committed to the job. Proof is in the pudding, however. Our house was gorgeous when ready for the market. They priced our house accurately and it sold as soon as it was available.” — J.A.
When? When should I sell?
The best time to sell your home is when the circumstances are right for you to make a move.
However, markets move in cycles.
In the years between 2008 and 2010, market conditions favored buyers. By contrast, 2014 was the continuation of an unprecedented seller’s market that began in 2011. Since 2011 the Median Sale Price of single family homes has risen dramatically.
MEDIAN SALE PRICE:
|Santa Clara County||$486,234||$745,000||53%|
|San Mateo County||$585,000||$873,500||49%|

A distinct advantage in the Silicon Valley real estate market is personally knowing the people and their properties. Deep roots in the communities of Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Portola Valley and Woodside allow us to make connections for our clients and create unique opportunities for them… many of which are creative and non-traditional, requiring trusted expertise and intense focus.
“The most valuable asset they offer to their clients is their knowledge of Palo Alto-Silicon Valley real estate… With competence and gentleness they advised and encouraged me every step of the way from understanding the philosophy of ‘selling in Palo Alto’ to the final signature. The results proved beyond any expectations I had.” — A.J.
“You have maintained a sterling reputation throughout our communities and for good reason; your high level of professionalism at all times, your natural ways with people, your support of local schools, and simply because you are pleasant and trustworthy in a complex business.” — J.G.
