We started working with Haruko in early 2010. I instantly liked how she would show up with itineraries and market breakdowns, and we would narrow from there. We were probably her toughest first time buyers making many offers and counter offers in a strange RE environment. We would focus on a certain property then a previous offers suddenly were active again as buyers could not get loans voiding their contracts. Throughout this process Haruko remained a loyal and driven professional and eventually a personal friend. Whether it be giving advice or pressing seller agents we always knew she was working for us no matter how busy her workload was. We finally found our new home thanks to her. We personally highly recommend Haruko and will work with her again if we need to buy or sell in the future.
