    Anna helped us with the purchase of our home. She is by far the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with – both as buyers and sellers.  She is responsive, has impeccable negotiation skills and is very knowledgeable on what’s going on in the market. The best is that Anna does it all…

    Anna was my realtor in 2018, helping me buy my condo in San Francisco in a very weird negotiating situation. From the day we met, I could tell Anna was different than many of her peers.

    Anna sold my investment property in San Francisco during a difficult COVID-19 pandemic environment. As an out-of-state investor, I had to rely on her for everything related to the property.

    We loved working with Anna when buying our first house! The world of homebuying was intimidating as we were learning everything for the first time.

    I admit I don’t write reviews often, so when I do, it is because I feel very motivated! What can I say?! Just the idea of purchasing my first home was so overwhelming. I didn’t know where to begin or what direction to look. I believe I got extremely lucky to have met Anna. Thinking…

    To frame my review, I want to start off by saying that I am demanding, have high expectations & when working with Anna, I was first time home buyer. And not at a luxury price point 🙂 For any realtors out there, this is the perfect storm of “not worth my time.” In addition to…

    Anna is above and beyond great, we were first time home buyers and had absolutely no idea how crazy San Francisco real estate actually is until we started looking about 3 years ago.

    Ron is hands down the best agent I’ve ever met, and really can’t speak highly enough about him.
