Just a short note to tell you how impressed I am with Siobhan. Her tenacity in the multiple offer situation (with 7 offers) was incredible. She stayed in the office during the long time necessary to review the offers and simply would not give up. She did her clients a great service! Furthermore, there was not one hitch in the resulting transaction once we were in contract. When she said something would be done by a certain date, it was done by that date. I sincerely look forward to our next transaction together!
This is a brief note to tell you how truly rewarding my husband and I found our association with Siobhan. We called with a formidable task: to sell our home within three weeks for a price that would allow us to purchase a much bigger house we’d fallen in love with in Berkeley. She was undaunted and sprang into action, rushing to get the house on the market she provided us with detailed instructions about what we must do to maximize our chances of a quick and successful sale; provided us with the names and numbers of uniformly exceptional inspectors and crews of workers to help us whip this property into shape. We had ten days to prepare for the first open house. Three days later, Siobhan conducted the realtors’ tour and held an additional open house. Two days later, we heard offers --- eight of them! --- and discovered to our amazement and delight that we had exceeded our hopes by a large margin. Throughout, Siobhan was charming, diligent, brilliantly well organized, phenomenally efficient, and very patient with an overwhelmed and often confused pair of clients. We feel we have had the very best experience any seller could ever dream of. The impossible task, in Siobhan’s hands, was a smooth and successful operation from beginning to end. We are deeply appreciative.
We want to thank you so much for guiding us through the successful sale of our house on Coleman Ave. It had been almost 50 years since we were last involved with a real estate transaction of this nature and were dismayed to learn how complex it had become. You immediately recognized our problem and gently and patiently guided us through completion of the many disclosure forms, making sure that we understood everything we were signing. You arranged to have the inspections and the “staging” of our property for sale taken care of with a minimum disruption of our lives. The fact that our house sold in less than two weeks, well above the asking price, proves how good your advice was. Most of all we appreciated that you did not rush us into the sale. You recognized that this was a major change in our lifestyle and that we needed time for down- sizing and for relocating to a suitable apartment. You had many helpful suggestions along the way for disposing of our unneeded furnishings and even made signs and prepared an IT ad for our last-minute yard sale. It was a particular pleasure working with you – you have a way of making even the most arduous chore almost fun.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Siobhan for a period of almost 2 years. She told us to have patience, especially in a life changing decision. We looked in a number of locations but mainly focused in the Santa Clara area. Her vast experience and familiarity with various neighborhoods made the process that much more efficient. More importantly, once Siobhan got to know us she was able to use her expertise and knowledge to create a profile of our wants and needs. Finding or selling a home isn't an exact science but because Siobhan was very patient in working with us it was easier to get to the place where we longed to be, a home that would represent who we were and what we hoped for.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are so happy in our new home and we owe you a big debt of gratitude for persevering in helping us secure it - before it even went on the market! We feel so lucky to be working with you again and appreciate so much your tenacity, positive energy, skill and years of experience. You are an amazing person to work with and we sing your praises to all our friends whenever we can. We look forward to showing you our new home soon. Feel free to swing by anytime. Thank you again for everything!
