Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I were first time homebuyers. We had no idea what we were getting into when we first started our house hunting process. We found Ivy on zillow and decided to give her a shot. I could not be more pleased with my whole experience with her as our realtor. I was not an easy customer! Within a short period of working with her were under contract on a short sale, after three months of waiting the sellers bank came back and declined the sale. Ivy never faltered, she came back to us with a beautiful home in a better neighborhood to go and view. We told her we loved it and she set her sights on it and ended up getting us that house. That was not the only challenge I brought to her. I tried just about every way to try to purchase our property from a VA loan to all cash offers, from fixers to finished homes. Ivy never blinked an eye she just rolled with the punches. Ivy was always within our budget and never late to an appointment. Whenever I would call and spring an appointment on her she would just tell me it was no problem and even met me in the evenings on last minute notice (due to my part) I have never met a realtor who was so willing to go the extra mile for their customers. I highly recommend Ivy and plan to use her knowledge and experience in my future property purchases!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in San Ramon, CA.

My husband and I placed our home on short-sale in the fall of 2012. We thought the process was going to be long and painful especially since we currently live on the East Coast. Ivy made the process so simple and easy for us. She was quick and efficient in placing the home on the market, showing it, and getting amazing offers to us. To our surprise the process of short selling our home was done in three months. We appreciate Ivy’s hard work, expertise and knowledge on short-sales.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Livermore, CA.

As first time buyers, we had a really great experience working with Ivy LoGerfo. We had a lot of questions about every step of the process, and Ivy helped us through everything. We ended up purchasing a single family home in our target location and within our budget. Ivy never showed us a place outside of our budget or in area that we weren’t interested in, and her knowledge of the market really showed. Ivy was very accessible for appointments and questions via phone, text and email, scouted out properties for us that we hadn’t see on the MLS, and best of all went the extra mile ended up getting us the property we now own. On top of our great experience in working with Ivy, she referred our mortgage broker. Both were top-notch and made the process even better! If you are looking for a real estate agent in the area, look no further than Ivy LoGerfo. The fact that the power of this positive home buying experience with Ivy is one thing that finally got me to join Yelp speaks volumes!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in San Ramon, CA.

When my wife and I decided to put our condo up for short sale we began our internet search for realtors in the East Bay that specialized and had success in short sales. To add to the potential problems in dealing with a short sale, we live 2500 miles away in the east coast, and we were hoping to close before the end of 2012.

We spoke with Ivy in early October, she showed the condo about 10 days later, and we closed on 31Dec12. From shortening our list of potential buyers/investors to the final signed document she kept in constant contact to let us know where we were in the process. She sent us documents and acknowledged/and answered all our emails and questions to sign in a timely manner. She is highly knowledgeable and will work hard to ensure your property gets sold!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Livermore, CA.

As the rest of the reviews indicate, it was a pleasure working with Ivy to close on a short sale townhome. We encountered the usual (minor) hiccups associated with a distressed sale but we felt Ivy was always ready to step up to move the process along. Perhaps most reassuring was Ivy's near-immediate responsiveness, which was invaluable to us as first-time home buyers. We felt very well looked after and almost as if we were her only client. We highly recommend Ivy.

Bought a home in 2012 in Altamont, Brentwood, CA 94551.

As first-time investment buyers, we totally relied on Ivy's knowledge of the local market, the potential for "fixer-uppers," her aggressiveness in jumping on new listings, and her persistence in negotiating a great deal. We were unsure getting into an investment deal, but now we're glad we did. Thanks, Ivy!

Bought a home in 2012 in Altamont, Brentwood, CA 94551.

I was a first time home buyer who insisted on using his VA Home Loan. I spoke with several realtors that were apprehensive and pessimistic regarding my prospective home search using the VA. Then, I met Ivy. She didn't miss a beat, smiled, and got to work immediately.

For those that don't know, the VA has more strict guidelines and procedures that tend to slow and potentially stop the home buying process. Ivy navigated this well, and I found and obtained my new home!

Ivy is ALWAYS Positive, works hard, and very knowledgeable about the area. Glad to have worked with her.

Joe I really enjoyed working with you! What a stellar testimonial! This means so much coming from a man who is very detailed orientated like you and has high expectations. I thank you greatly! We had lots of twists and turns and got it done! And what a great home you got out of the deal!!! I wish you years of happiness and fond memories there. Please consider recommending my services to your vet friends. I just placed another vet in a home last week. The market is challenging for vets right now. But we were able to achieve another VA success story! Hoo-rah!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $425K in Livermore, CA.

Ivy was a dream to work with. We met her during an open house and it took us 2 years to find the perfect home. We did not look the whole 2 years, just off and on. She was patient and explained the whole process to us each step of the way. Her people skills are excellent and her knowledge of Realestate was just what we needed. She continues to be a great source of knowledge and is happy to answer our questions, even today. We love our little home and the neighborhood. She was right, it is the perfect place for us. My daughter and her husband also used Ivy and are very happy with thier home. And I miss our friendship that developed from the transaction. You will not go wrong in trusting her.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Livermore, CA.

Ivy helped us buy our first home and I'm not sure what we woulda done without her! She was always good about showing us houses at late hours and odd times due to our work schedules, and always gave us a good opinions on tough questions which really helped us out.

She was also super responsive, I recall many late nights texting back and forth with her and she always got back to emails promptly too.

All in all we really lucked out in selecting Ivy - I've met a few realtors since and let me tell you, I sure am glad we picked Ivy! She is on top of her game unlike some others.

Thanks so much for helping us get a wonderful home Ivy! We're loving it!
