Your "RE" Connection

Dear Judy - I am so lucky to have had you as my real estate agent. Not only was I new to the Bay Area, but I was also a first time home buyer who needed a lot of guidance. Your knowledge of the South Bay and the home buying process was phenomenal and I always felt as though you had my best interests at heart. You took the time to learn who I am and what my interests are in order to recommend areas that I would be happy to settle down in. Never once did I feel pressured or overwhelmed during this entire process and I ultimately found a place that I could call home (in just one month!). Even after the papers were signed, you constantly kept me abreast of the progress and your follow through was amazing! I truly feel as though if it were not for you, I would still be looking. I have already recommended you to many others and will continue to do so. Everyone's home buying experience should be like this one! Best regards... Pamela Lai - Campbell
Hard working, down to earth and an expert negotiator.  Judy helped me find exactly what I was looking for.  She was referred to me by a very trusted referral source and I am delighted with my new home.  Hard Working - Judy spent hours driving me around to look at a range of listings in both San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. Each listing was researched with documented profiles and allowed me to do plenty of side-by-side comparisons. When it came time to go into contract, heaps of paperwork that looked intimidating and boring was clearly explained and processed quickly and painlessly.  Down to Earth - Judy reminds me of my Mom. She took care of my needs as a first time buyer during the home selection process and for the entire transaction.  Expert Negotiator - Judy found exactly what I was looking for at a very competitive price. In the Bay Area in particular, bidding on a place you want is only a start. I have many friends who had to switch Realtors after losing their favorite listings. I was fortunate to get my home on the first attempt thanks in large part to a clean offer the seller couldn't refuse...  IF you are not looking for these characteristics in a Realtor, go with someone else. Then Judy will have more time to work with me when I sell this home and buy my next property!

Dear Judy - How can we thank you enough for all the knowledge, time and effort you put into selling our house?  You made it seem easy - you went above and beyond, to spare us all the little extra steps needed to make the sale a "done deal".  And the bonus - we made a friend!  We appreciate the fact that you were professional and easy to work with, and made a difficult decision easier for us.  Through your efforts, we know that both buyers and sellers are happy with the transaction.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We are more than glad to recommend you to any and all who need a competent agent!  Fondly...  Don and Sue Holmes - San Jose
Dear Judy - As first-time homebuyers, you were there for us every step of the way.  We always felt like we had an advocate - someone to guide us through the process and the mountains of paperwork.  Your experience and help made it possible for us to find our dream home and make an offer that was accepted in record time.  Everyone was flabbergasted (including us) when we told them we were under contract within one week of our search for a home...  We really are very grateful to you, for your integrity and honesty.  We could never have imagined how much our lives would change; how invested we are in our new home.  We feel fortunate to have worked with you and will recommend you to our friends and family members.  We are so lucky to have a Realtor we not only like, but also respect.  Thank you so much for your guidance, your candidness, and your friendship.  Take care...  Cassandra and William - Sunnyvale
Dear Judy - I want to thank you so much for helping me find and purchase a home.  For a first-time homebuyer like myself, the process can be arduous and a little scary.  But your patience, honesty and professionalism went a long way towards educating me in what to look for in a house and neighborhood, as well as helping me navigate the bidding and closing process.  You found that balance between remaining dedicated and determined without being overbearing or heavyhanded.  I felt that my best interests were being looked after while simultaneously learning a lot about home buying.  And even after the transaction closed and I was already in the house, your assistance in finding vendors and arranging follow-up work proved invaluable.  I was especially impressed that you still continued to help me with such "after the fact" details as suggesting paint color schemes, baseboard and interior door improvements when I was adrift in indecision over these matters.  You apparently truly enjoy and take pride in your work and it shows.  I have and will continue to wholeheartedly recommend you to others who are considering buying or selling a home...  Peter Cirigliano - Sunnyvale

Dear Judy - Thank you so much for being an awesome Realtor to Dave and I.

Thank you a million for all you've done for us. Please don't be a stranger...and let's do tuna sandwiches again soon! Thank you again....

Dear Judy - I want to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the fantastic job you did in helping me sell my home. Your sage knowledge, sharp advice, dedication and time made for an extremely quick and profitable sale! Offers were coming in left and right within hours of posting my home. You are truly one of the nicest, most hardworking people I know. During a difficult time in my life (my mother having recently passed away, the break-up with my son's father, and the life-changing decision to sell the home I had lived in since 7 years of age) I feel you went above and beyond what I saw as your duty as a Realtor. You even advised me from the start to take my time and search deeply to be sure that selling my home was right for me at this time. You did not think of your own benefit. You were kind, giving and supportive through the entire process, while still telling it to me straight and putting all the facts and options on the table. Not only would I highly recommend you to anyone wanting to sell their home, but I also feel that you are a stellar human being and I hope we always stay in touch......
Most sincerely and appreciatively,
Julia Garcia - San Jose
