What our clients have to say
"Every once in a while we still have to pinch ourselves to remind us that this is real. We are so happy in our new home. Piedmont is wonderful. It still amazes us that Robinson sold so quickly. We appreciate everything Carla did from the early advice and punch lists to calming us during the escrow process."

"The thought of hiring a realtor made me go straight to the vodka cabinet. I just did not want to do it. I didn't want to interview anyone. I hate being sold.They are going to make me do so much stuff. Or bother me with emails. Or pressure me. Or grow tired of me. Or never go away. Or go away too fast. But, unless I wanted to continue living in a 2 bed, 1 bath with four family members and a monster dumb dog, we had to sell our place. And by the time I turned around, it seems, they had done just that. While my life was as busy as ever with work, kids, etc, etc, quietly, in the background, two lovely women were selling our home for TOP dollar. And doing it all perfectly. And quickly. And adding almost zero percent stress to my already hectic life. Worth every penny."

SUPERB NEGOTIATION SKILLS
"My husband and I have had the fortunate opportunity of purchasing and selling homes with Maria. She is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and possesses superb marketing and negotiation skills. She was not only able to secure multiple offers but was able to sell our home far above asking price in a down-turning market."
- Kate and Tarik Mansour | Buyers + Sellers in Oakland
"Maria has helped us with both the purchase and sale of 4 properties; we have been amazed with the level of service she offers. Maria is knowledgeable, ethical, and goes that extra mile. When challenging situations arise, Maria comes to the rescue with creative solutions. Detail oriented, quality obsessed, and totally committed!"
