“I am so glad I listed with you instead of one of the huge companies. Your marketing plan worked wonders. I cannot believe how quickly our property sold, or the price we received--way over asking! And your legal, technical, and negotiating expertise made the transaction smooth.” ~ C.W. & R.W., Los Altos Sellers
“You made everything go so smoothly for us, from offer to closing, so it was stress-free.”  ~ S.J.B and J.H.B., San Jose Buyers and Sellers
“Francis, you were wonderful. You handled everything for us. We would have been lost but you gave us peace of mind." ~ E.C./D.G., Los Altos Hills Sellers
"Thank you for making the sale of my father's house, the home he built with his two hands, the home we grew up in, the home my dad owned for 60 years, as easy as possible. While it was difficult to say good bye to 640 *** Drive, the sale was seamless. You made a sad, difficult situation far more bearable. Thank you so very much." ~ M.P., Mid-Peninsula Seller
