Ratings & Reviews

An owner-to-owner transaction with specified amount and transfer the title to the buyer was initiated by another buyer (she insisted not to use a Realtor). Since my health was not the best and a lot of uncertainties, I almost considered the deal. But thankfully, Emma and Amado was around to provide me guidance without pressuring me which options to pursue and determine what benefits me / what is BEST for me. I have my property listed, marketed (with two open houses) and a bit more than offers submitted. It was sold for much much more than I expected.<br/><br/>It could have been an stressful process but their patience paid off. I have other real estate transactions before but really never understood the whole process - all I know was the agent I was dealing then just asked me to 'sign this section' etc...Thank you...

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Centerville, Fremont, CA.

My husband and I began the search for our first home in a very competitive market for first time home buyers. We had given up and took a break from the housing search until we met team Emma and Amado. We met Emma and Amado through one of their open house listing and were quite impressed with the rapport and support we received and came to be hopeful again with our house search. Without hesitancy, we contacted them to be our agents and were able to get a consultation session promptly accordingly to our schedule (which was a great and informative session!)

Through our experience working with Emma and Amado, they are an amazing team! Both are good educators, advocates, and very knowledgeable in their line of work. And they always go the extra miles, with special market analysis so you can get a better gauge into the market value and to better guide you into making an appropriate offer. Whichever offer we decided on, Emma and Amado represented us fully and even when we didn't win, we still got a good learning experience out of it.

We appreciate the promptness, attention to our wants and needs for our home, and for finding us our ideal home in the desired neighborhood that we had always wanted to be in. We would highly recommend Emma and Amada and have no regret with going with these two as our wonderful agents!

It was an utmost pleasure to work with both of these newly married couple / first time homebuyers. What makes it a pleasurable experience was both of them were transparent and very open with what they wanted. Meeting both parents was equally important as well - both were in the loop of their most important financial decision. Handing out the keys to the house felt wonderful...not relieved but we know we'll missing those experiences...thank you for the opportunities of serving your family...we are just a phone call away for any questions...

Sold a home in 2012 in Harder-Tennyson, Hayward, CA 94544.

Emma helped us sell our house in Hayward and then helped us buy our dream home in Newark. She is very professional, prompt and very punctual. She is very accessible, very friendly and available for every details of the buying and selling process. She is very patient, detail oriented and has a heart of a teacher, explaining all the details and the options, and then leaving you to make the decision and the choice at your own time.

When we first met her, she was showing a house and chatted about our needs and plans, i.e to sell our existing house and then buy another one in Newark or Fremont area. After few days, she did a detailed research and analysis for our existing house, came to our home and presented us with various pros and cons selling or renting the house and suggested that it would in our best interest if we sell and then buy. She helped us find various professionals and contractors, making the house very attractive and desirable and we got multiple offers, all of them above asking price (we didn't expect to get multiple offers since the real estate market hasn't recovered yet). What impressed us the most was that though she was the buyer's agent in the some of the offers, (all offers were very competitive), she presented us all the offers, discussed pros and cons of each, as expected from a professional of her caliber. Not only that she worked out the details with us, picking the offer which was the best for us though it was not in her best financial interest (i.e. didn't pick the offers with dual agency).

Emma later helped us buy our current home in Newark. The market was already very competitive and there were quite a few multiple offers in the houses we tried to get. Regardless, she worked very hard with the seller's agent and we were able to get our dream home, without offering above and beyond the listing though that has become the norm at the time.

Overall, we recommend Emma for your next home buying or selling needs. She is very trustworthy and dependable real estate professional and gets things done and done very well.

"...picking the offer which was the best for us though it was not in her best financial interest (i.e. didn't pick the offers with dual agency)" This is the most important goal for all our clients - selling the highest possible price and getting the best possible terms for all our buyers. Both of you Matheos / Senait made it remarkably 'easy' to do our job as you both were upfront with what you want and really allowed us to be transparent through the whole process. We endeavour to deliver more and less with promises and thank you for the opportunity of getting to know you and your family...
