Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in San Rafael, CA.
Denise Montalvo is a very patient, energetic, compassionate and hard working agent. It had been 17 years since I last bought a house and things have changed drastically since then. Denise "held my hand" throughout the entire process while keeping me informed and calm through a very difficult offering and escrow period. She is extremely personable while being very professional.
Denise once told me she considers herself a kind of match-maker: finding the right home for each of her clients. In my case this couldn't have been more true. Denise found me the kind of house I had always dreamed of owning. A lovely old craftsman in a stellar neighborhood that, because of it's condition, was exactly in my price range. I couldn't be happier and I would highly recommend Denise to anyone looking for a house in this (or any) market.
My wife and I decided to move to Marin County, but the only problem was we were not very familiar with it. We wanted to work with a local real estate company so we chose Bradley Real Estate. It was just by chance that we were introduced to Denise Montalvo. I have to say we were very lucky to get a great agent like her to help us. Marin county is a tough place to buy a home, but Denise helped us find a place and close within sixty days. We certainly don't have deep pockets either.
She was extremely patient and took us out to numerous homes in several cities so that we could get a better feel for what we were looking for. Her priority was to find us the right home. If you meet her and work with her you'll understand.
I have bought and sold several homes and I give her my highest recommendation. She is a wonderful person to work with who knows her profession and the surrounding area she represents.
