Ivy and John helped us accomplish our big real estate project in Livermore/San Ramon area in summer 2014. The reason we picked them as our real estate agents is because they appeared to be the most honest and responsive team among those we met (and we had previously met A LOT agents). They also had the highest number of sales in our area: we actually went through the trouble of manually looking into last 150 sales in our neighborhood, and saw that REMAX agents sold/purchased most number of homes and Ivy's name alone was present in nearly 40% of sales. With their help we managed to sell our home in a highly competitive market, and then purchased another property in a high demand/limited inventory area. Both transactions went smoothly and in both cases we got great home prices. Ivy's expertise in real estate and John's knowledge of construction and home remodel were a great combination. But what surprised us the most, is that they were available almost 24 hours a day, literarily! Whenever we texted, emailed or called, they would take no time to respond. And also they made themselves available over the weekend to show us properties we were interested in. Once John even made two SEPARATE trips on the same day with us through heavy Livermore traffic to San Ramon so we could see all available options in the area. Highly recommend LoGerfo team!

WOW! Your review of our services, real estate agents & the market in general is so impressive! You spent a great time doing your research and then to select John and I, is such a huge compliment! We loved working with you and we got such pleasure in seeing your family reach your real estate goals. The market got a little challenging as there was a shift occurring but we took the bull by the horns and maneuvered thru it! I always enjoy a good challenge that's what makes this career a good choice for me. I like keeping a watchful eye on the market so we can be ahead of the next wave and this intuitiveness has been a great resource to my clients.
We are looking so forward to seeing all you've accomplished with your new home! We will be waiting anxiously for our invite!!
Thank you again for such a great review!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Livermore, CA.
We first had the pleasure of meeting Ivy and John a year ago. At that time we learned of the capital gains rule of living in your primary home for 2 years before selling it. When the timing was right this year we contacted Ivy again and things happened so quickly!
Ivy did a great job of marketing our home, even enlisting the help of a stager to get our house ready to sell. Our home was listed the second week of September and after only one weekend of open houses we received a suitable offer (actually a great one)! No more open houses or realtor showings after that which was nice. Ivy then walked us through all the steps right up to the closing.
Ivy is very pleasant to work with as is everyone on her team of professionals. We highly recommend Ivy to anyone who is in the market to sell or buy a house. She gets the job done!
Thank you Ivy and John.
Ron and Linda

Ivy and John are incredibly knowledgable about the Livermore area. Ivy's recommendation to make minor changes in my condo and list at a price competitive for the area proved to be highly effective. We had a buyer within 6 days of the first and only open house and closed in less than 30 days. The entire process moved very quickly; an ideal situation. Ivy and John were there for me every step of the way. Ivy provided timely updates via email/text and phone calls and offered guidance when I needed it the most.
It was the extra care and attention that I really appreciated about Ivy and John, along with their incredible body of knowledge of the Livermore market. John and Ivy are humble Realators who put their customer(s) first. I know who to call when I'm ready to buy next property.

After working with Ivy LoGerfo, I understand why she is the top selling realtor in Livermore.
Ivy is very professional with a strong record of success. Ivy leveraged her knowledge of the market area and reputation in the community to propose a winning sale strategy. From the beginning she gave sound advice without compromising our objectives as a family.
Although my husband and I are extremely busy, we did not have to worry. Ivy handled all aspects of our sale including pre-market advertisements, flyers, staging, open houses and negotiations with the buyer's agent in an efficient and effective manner.
An additional surprise benefit to working with Ivy was her collaboration with her husband and business partner John. John, also a realtor, was present at inspections, staging and other events. John has a great personality and we enjoyed working with him!
We received multiple offers on our home and closed ahead of schedule, well above our asking price. I highly recommend Ivy.

Ivy was wonderful to work with. As first time buyers, we were a bit clueless regarding the process of buying a house. Ivy led us every step of the way with patience and enthusiasm. The first time I spoke to Ivy, she asked me all the characteristics that we desired in a new house and she made sure to honor these desires when showing us potential homes. She never made us feel pressured to choose any house and we truly got the sense that she cared about our happiness! Her knowledge of the Livermore area was also very helpful throughout the process as we wanted to make sure we ended up in a good neighborhood. I'd highly recommend Ivy to anyone and we will definitely use her in the future if we decide to move!

The BEST!!! We just bought a beautiful and affordable home in Livermore and Ivy made it happened!!! Her knowledge of the area (including Livermore Wineries) was a great asset when looking at different areas of Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin. Also, her real state professional knowledge was "right on the button" since she would give us a heads-up about possible steps and milestones along the way before they occurred. Her advice was terrific and very much appreciated as we visited each home listed and toured grounds, garages, kitchen, bathrooms and more; she pointed out improvements, suggestions, weakness and strengths of each home. Her responsiveness was "superior," we always had lots of questions after viewing many homes during the same day and she would revealed specifics about each home and clarified our jumble-up thoughts. Even if you take pictures and notes your mind will plays tricks on you after viewing a few homes during any house hunting period.
Bottom line, If you are serious about buying a home in Livermore you need to contact Ivy LoGerfo at Remax-Accord in Livermore. She will simply guide you and make your home buying experience a wonderful and fun experience.

I would first like to say Ivy is one of the hardest working people I know and I thank her for that! She has made buying and selling of my home's a very easy and pleasant experience. She works well with people with busy lifestyle like myself and I would recommend her to anyone in need of selling or buying a home. Also I won't forget to mention John, (Ivy's Husband) for his wisdom for question around the house. Great team together! Thanks Again,

If you are interested in Livermore as a place to live and purchase a home then you can save a lot of time in selecting a realtor and start your search by connecting with Ivy. She knows Livermore as a longtime resident and is very familiar with market conditions, current property listings and finding you a home in your price range in the best possible neighborhood. Ivy is very professional at all times and goes out of her way to make the process of looking at properties, securing financing, submitting an offer and taking care of the many details and stresses associated with buying a home as smooth as possible. Ivy even connected my wife and I with an amazing financial resource who got us pre approved and closed on our sale in 15 days. As great as Ivy was in helping us select a home she was most valuable in negotiating with the selling agent and came through for us in a big way when the deal was in question of falling through. She also referred us to several local resources for getting our hardwood floors redone and some minor home improvements. A huge plus of working with Ivy is you also get to know her husband who is a wealth of information about home improvement, Livermore history, and real estate investment strategy. My wife and I would not hesitate to very highly recommend Ivy as a highly capable and trusted real estate agent.
