I am delighted to have the opportunity to rave, to anybody who is getting ready to sell or buy a home, about my outstanding experience with Access Homes Realty. Max Mendoza and Laurence Nathanson were everything I needed in real estate agents. For years I had dreaded selling my home, as I thought it would just be “too hard.” They were up for the challenge and for me they made the process as simple and easy as it could be.
The main challenge for them was that I live in New Zealand and the property I was selling is in Oakland, California. The main challenge for me was I did not want to come back to Oakland to sell, and I did not know any real estate agents in the greater Bay Area.
I was fortunate that I heard about Laurence while he was vacationing with family in Wellington, the city in NZ where I live. We mere able to meet up in person, and I met his partner Max on Face Time. From there we formed a seller agent relationship of many emails, Internet video calls and docusign documents!!
For me there were some significantly difficult times during the sale, and Max and Laurence were extremely professional. They helped me to find the legal representation I needed and they took on the task of negotiating in my behalf with the parties involved.
There were over 200 pages of disclosures, as I had owed the property for many years. All the inspections required for the sale, from numerous companies, were arranged in a timely fashion. I was always kept informed of the progress of the sale, sometimes on a daily basis. All of this was achieved from the distance of 16.000 miles apart. We laughed about how, during the course of the sale, they had more face-to-face contact with me overseas than they had with sellers in the immediate vicinity!
The best part is I am delighted with the outcome. Once some obstacles to the sale were sorted, they arranged a number of open homes and very shortly I had interested buyers, which led to a contract. This I know involved many long hours commuting back and forth from San Francisco to Oakland at all hours of day and night. These agents really literally went the extra mile for me!!
Should you be in the market to sell your property I would highly recommend that you work with these outstanding agents.
