Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA.
We weren't first-time home buyers -- but even we found the prospect of buying in today's San Francisco real estate market really daunting. Alina in hindsight made it all seem easy -- she came to understand our needs and constraints really quickly. She both found properties that might potentially fit both and gave us good advice about pros and cons. Both her range of skills and connections within the local real estate community stood her and us in good stead in locating and closing on a home. And she stays in touch with us to make sure things are going smoothly. We first encountered Alina in early October thinking that our buying a home in the city was a long shot. We closed the deal on the home we're set to occupy by mid-December. What else can one say?

Alina helped me and my wife purchase our first home and was excellent. The SF market is complicated, nuanced, and frustrating especially for first time buyers. She was helpful and patient throughout the process. She showed a great knowledge and understanding of the specific neighborhoods and areas we were excited about and guided us wisely during our entire journey. We were successful in the end thanks to her combination of patience and tenacity. I would recommend her (and have) to any friend looking to try and navigate the SF home buying market.
Alina helped me purchase a condo. She took me for a tour of the building and helped me with decision making on layout and square footage. I was concerned about transportation from and to the city and she put me in contact with someone that was already living in the building and had the same commute. The transaction was smooth and fast.

In addition to all of the above qualities which she possesses in spades, Alina is also a very sincere, conscientious hard worker who always goes above & beyond the call of duty. Her conscious effort & eagerness to help really made a big difference especially for a 1st time seller & a single woman! I can't praise her enough & would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat!
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA.
Alina was highly recommended when I reached out to her and true to her high recommendation, she got to work right away. We met at a coffee shop and we discussed what I was looking for. Alina explained my options and she promised she will work hard to get me a place. During this entire time, she not only explained the red hot market, the real estate rules, but also tried to know me so that she can tailor her search to find a place that suited me. I very much appreciated her approach to her business.
After our first meeting, Alina got to work and setup alerts and she gave me constant updates. We finally found a place and our bid was accepted in the highly coveted neighborhood of Noe Valley. That is when Alina’s exceptional work came to bear. The place that we got has recently won a condo conversion and the owners were not only going through a condo conversion, but also one of them selling the unit to me. The process looked cumbersome and complicated. Alina was there not only to help alleviate my anxiety, but also to explain the intricacies of condo conversion and the financial transactions that need to take place before I was able to make the new unit mine. Alina had to work with the real estate agent, the escrow people and the existing tenants and during the whole process she kept me abreast on all the activities. I moved in to my new place at the beginning of July right when Alina was going on vacation. To make sure I moved in without a hitch, Alina texted me from her vacation. She didn’t have to do that, but showed to me how much she cared and values me as a customer.
If you are looking for an amazing agent in such a tough market, you should look no further than Alina. Very thorough, honest, stoic and confident and extremely knowledgeable. I highly, highly recommend Alina.
Alina, thank you for all the help in making my dream come true; without you, I would not have a place I can call home.
We recently used the services of Alina Aeby to sell our two-bedroom condo at Sierra Heights on Potrero Hill. She gave us excellent advice and we sold our home in less than a week for well over the asking price. She helped us find a stager that helped show our home to it maximum potential. Most importantly, Alina was in daily contact about each step of the process. She was very patient with our many questions. She was very professional in all our dealings and perhaps most important of all, she made a difficult and stressful experience fun. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and in fact we already have.
I have been working with Alina for over 7 years now. She has always been very professional, extremely patient, and most importantly, handles all details of sales with precision and care. She is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.7M in Inner Richmond, San Francisco, CA.
Alina Aeby is the best realtor with whom I have ever worked. We purchased our San Francisco home with Alina's help while we were living in Los Angeles and so our process had to occur long distance. Alina took on a very independent role in the escrow process and handled everything for us perfectly. She was extremely organized throughout the escrow period and was great at communicating with our lender and the seller's agents. She was always on top of any challenges that came our way and did a wonderful job managing a complicated real estate transaction calmly and smoothly. We would highly recommend Alina to family, friends and anyone else looking for a trustworthy and responsible realtor in San Francisco.
Alina is very efficient and knowledgeable about the SF market. I had only been in SF for a year and unfamiliar with all the neighborhoods. After helping me narrow down my search criteria, she showed me a property when it first came to market and before other buyers had a chance to see it. We eventually closed on the property, and I am looking forward to living in my new home!
I had the pleasure of working with Alina on the purchase of my new home. She is very patient, knowledgeable, and represented the buyers extremely well. She offers great coordination between buyer, seller, bank, and the title company. She made the transaction effortless (considering it was one of the most difficult transactions I have ever dealt with.)
