I recommend Chad as a realtor to anyone and everyone. My husband and I met Chad through our friend. As young, somewhat naive, first-time home buyers, my husband and I had no idea about what to expect. Chad far surpassed any idea of what we thought our realtor would help us with in the home buying process.
From helping us to negotiate an offer below asking price (in the Bay Area market, no less!) to being a true partner in navigating a tricky loan situation, to meeting us at nighttime to see what our neighborhood would look like (even though he has a young family), and to just being a friend to talk to about our frustrations in the home buying process, Chad was always there for us.
Chad's professionalism, communication skills, knowledge of the Bay Area housing market, skill in assessing potential issues in homes (due to his exposure to the construction industry), and ability to act as a partner during the process is truly a rare find, especially in comparison to other realtors I had contacted before we were introduced to Chad. They had not an iota of the overall skill set that Chad possesses. Should I ever sell or move again, I can't imagine using anyone but Chad as our broker or realtor.
My husband and I can't say enough about how amazing Chad was to work with, and we hope to cross paths in the future!
