Ratings & Reviews

Gertrude helped us to find our dream home– she’s a pleasure to work with and very seasoned in the in San Francisco market. She’s a great listener, very knowledgeable and responsive. For us, we felt very comfortable with our close working relationship.<br/><br/>I have the highest praise for Gertrude in the offer-to-close part of the process. She helped us to set the right offer, move on it quickly, and navigate it through the complications that followed. In our case, we did have complications – the HOA was involved in litigation. In the face of these challenges, Gertrude gave us solid advice, and kept us current throughout the whole period. She put us in touch with other professionals with insight on our situation; in this way, one can see that she is really well-connected to the real estate scene and knows how to handle the curve balls. Bottom line, she gets results and for that we are personally very appreciative of her efforts.<br/><br/>We wholeheartedly recommend Gertrude Villanueva as a buyer’s agent. I recommend you speak with her, and if you feel the connection, you can also have confidence of her ability to get you through the process no matter what.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $825K in South of Market, San Francisco, CA.

It took us 6 months to find the right place. Gertrude never gave up on us (we almost lost hope to find the right place) unlike previous agent that disappeared after 3 weeks (saying we won't find a place with our budget in our neighborhood). Gertrude was very tentative to our needs and always made sure we were the first to see any new listing on the market. And once we found a place we liked, Gertrude made sure we were the first to make an offer to preempt higher bids.

After we signed the contract Gertrude helped us find a lender specializing in this type of property to get the best rate. She was diligent and tenacious, combing through mounts of documentation, making sure the HOA acknowledged its responsibility for the repairs needed in the apartment.

All along the way we fully trusted Gertrude judgement, feeling that she had our best interests in mind and knowing that she would act in our best interests.

Bought a home in 2012.

Gertrude was awesome! I had worked with 3 other agents in the past and felt like they either didn't quite understand what I was looking for, kept showing me properties that were way out of my budget or their enthusiasm waned after a few months of not finding anything. Gertrude is everything you would want in a realtor. She is very patient, never pushy and works hard to find you the perfect home. I really felt like she had my best interests in mind and wasn't just trying to make a sale. The property I purchased received multiple offers and even though my offer wasn't the highest one I was able to get it because of Gertrude's expertise at negotiating.

Not only is she a great realtor, she is also such a pleasure to work with. I now consider her a trusted friend. I will definitely use her as my agent again in the future and will recommend her to all my friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.225M in Mission, San Francisco, CA.

Gertrude is a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable about real estate in the city. I am super happy with her service to find me a house here in San Francisco. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the city, I highly recommend her!
