I believe that when you find a job you love, you never work another day of your life.
I love my job. There's nothing more professionally satisfying than congratulating a new homeowner or homeseller on the successful close of their transaction.

In my career I have become very aware of the amount of paper resources consumed in the real estate industry -- everything is copied in triplicate, signed by another person then copied again -- in triplicate (!):
- 200 page disclosure packets may be printed 10-20 times...all of them but the final buyer's discarded.
- multiple copies of printed correspondence and instructions.
It's really sad that typical transactions use around 1,000 sheets of (mostly discarded) paper.

Being an avid tree-hugger, I find this unacceptable and therefore attempt to run my business with minimal impact. As many documents as possible are signed on a tablet PC and preserved in soft copy. My average per transaction is down to around 50 sheets...and when paper is unavoidable, it's 100% post-consumer recycled and/or sustainable forest certified.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.05M in Campbell, CA.
    Aileen was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She explained the house-buying process clearly, and truly understood all the rules and laws involved. The paperwork and legal work are confusing to the first-time buyer, but Aileen sailed us through everything that came along, so that it became an easy process.

    After the sale, Aileen continued to be a help to us, passing on references for contractors, negotiating with termite & house inspectors on our behalf, and generally being a dream come true!

    I would not hesitate to recommend Aileen to a future buyer. Thank you for everything you did for us!

    Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Mountain View, CA.
    I first worked with Aileen in 2005 when she helped me buy my condo in Mountain View. I recently reached out to her again regarding selling same condo. My condo needed a few final repairs and finishes to projects I had left undone and I couldn't seem to get any momentum towards the work that was needed to get it ready for sale.

    Aileen stepped in, and with her customary energy and good humor, JUST MADE IT HAPPEN. I had quotes within a week, the work was completed in two weeks, and before I knew it, it was time to put it on the market. Aileen and Katie coordinated everything from repair work to painting, new carpeting, new landscaping, smoke detector installation and the staging.

    Aileen and Katie took charge of everything, and made it come to together with minimal to no hassle. All the paperwork was done online and at my convenience-- no more stacks of paper! The house repairs, prep and staging was done meticulously (I seriously gave thought to moving back in after I saw her amazing results!).

    The marketing materials were very professional and they definitely generated a lot of interest. After just one weekend on the market, the place was sold.

    Aileen and Katie were easily accessible at all times and for all questions. They are flexible, communicate well and were able to competently answer all my questions (even ones I didn't know to ask!).

    I highly recommend this team if you are looking to buy or sell.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Rose Garden, San Jose, CA.
    Although this was our first time buying a home, I have had recent experience assisting in the home buying process for family members. The nightmarish situations that took place in most of these instances left me to expect that level of difficulty to be the norm. That is, until we met Aileen.

    Aileen was everything you could ask for in a realtor. As first time home buyers, we had questions about every little detail and Aileen was always happy to answer us thoroughly and in an incredibly timely manner. She was patient with us as we looked for our home and gave us the options that were best suited for us and our needs. She showed integrity and professionalism by refusing to ever double dip as the buying and selling agent. She took us to see homes at non-business hours that worked for our schedules and gave her honest opinion and thoughts. And most of all, she established a relationship with us where we trusted her and valued her opinion.

    You two are so sweet :) What a pleasure it was to help you buy your first home. I'm so pleased you ended up with the one you did, rather than some of the others we looked at!
