Ratings & Reviews

During the process of moving, I worked with Monika for both selling our old home, relocating, and buying my new home. I had many questions about where in the bay area we might choose. It was quite a process and Monika told me right off the bat that it would be a journey of "17,000 easy steps." While I like the personal touch that Monika gives to her real estate practice, she is a consummate professional, making it easy and walking me through every single step. Whenever there was a question, she either answered it or found someone who could. We ended up getting more money for the house than we expected and getting more house than we expected when we purchased. Monika marketed our home so that we got 16 offers and our best offer was 10% above asking. When we purchased the second home she made sure that all the repairs needed were paid for and we got some credit too. You can tell that she loves to negotiate. During the whole process she was not only my friend, but now she's family too. We'll absolutely use Monika as our realtor in the future and recommend that you do too.

Bought a home in 2014 in Havenscourt, Oakland, CA 94605.

Monika Thomas is a real estate extraordinaire and a life saver.

Sadly, when I started the home buying process, I didn't know that my friend Monika was an agent. She is a stellar communicator who is able to take firm stances and really fight for what she believes in. When she's your agent, what she believes in is you.

Fortunately, by the time I was half way through the home buying process, I _did_ know that she was an agent. It's fortunate, because her coming in and saving my loan is probably the only reason that we got to close. My original agent I had gotten through a recommendation by my bank and she was just NOT up to the very difficult three layered loan that I was trying to close. She also wasn't up to the seller's real estate agent loosing their license.

Monika was.

I reached out to her and asked her for help, and she swooped in and fixed everything. If only she'd been there in the beginning, I'm confident that many of the problems wouldn't have gotten to the point that they did.

I can not say enough about how spectacular working with Monika was. You should do it.

Showed home in 2013 in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA 94114.

If you want an agent that takes care of you, I'd recommend Monika. She went out of her way to pick us up and show us around, creating tours of the different properties that we were interested in, giving us extra information... in addition to e-mailing properties that could be of interest almost every day. She was good at keeping in touch over the 8 weeks that we were looking. Unfortunately we didn't find a home in the Bay Area and decided on a condo almost 500 miles out of town, but if you are looking for property in the San Francisco Bay Area, Monika's a helpful & knowledgeable agent.

Showed home in 2013.

If you're looking for an agent, look no further. Monika rocks. She helped us with a first-time house hunt under time pressure and with, well, some challenging financial constraints. She explained everything in advance, patiently answering all our questions, and even prepped us for the rollercoaster emotional ups and downs to come. She kept us anchored with a positive attitude, even amidst the crazy facts of the Bay Area housing market. She knows the market, she knows the strategies for winning without giving away money. She's the one you want helping you.
