Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.
We highly recommend Rabia as your agent. We worked with Rabia to sell our townhouse and she was amazing. Her knowledge of the market, advanced marketing techniques and strong work ethic helped us sell our property quickly and for a great price.
Rabia made the process painless for us (important because we just had a baby 2 months before). She brought in cleaners, a handyman to repair a few things, and beautifully staged our house all within a two days so that there would be minimal impact to our lives. From there, she had beautiful photos taken, put up a personalized website for our property and had high quality flyers printed. Then she held great open houses for us.
Bottom line, our house sold for more than we expected and fast too. We would highly recommend Rabia as your agent.

Rabia being the top agent in our area, we contacted her to sell our home. After our first meeting with her we were confident that we chose the right agent for the job. We found her extremely knowledgeable and a thorough professional.
Since we had an urgency to sell our home, we were quite anxious before our open house. Rabia, on the other hand, was very confident about the positive outcome and guided us throughout the whole process taking care of every little detail that could make a difference. Our home was sold at a record high and it exceeded all our expectations.
Rabia's online marketing skills are exemplary and it helped us a great deal in selling our home. I would highly recommend Rabia to anyone who wants an agent who is friendly, knowledgeable, transparent and reliable.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.
Rabia helped us sell our house in Sunnyvale since we were moving out of town. Although we were initially thinking of renting the house, she convinced us that the time was right to sell the house. Through all the complications - having to get the house ready with all the repairs in a really short time to managing the closing after we had left - Rabia was always in control of the process with very timely and concise communication. To leave without the house being sold would be considered by many a huge risk, but we were in good hands and I hardly had to do anything after the house was listed on the market! We would highly recommend Rabia to anyone, especially in the Tasman Crossing area, if you are looking to sell your house, or even if you are planning to buy one.
Interesting co-incidence - our house sold for EXACTLY the price she had mentioned to us in our initial meeting. I thought it was a pipe dream, but now I'm proven wrong thanks to Rabia's exceptional marketing and negotiation skills.
Rabia is an exceptional agent. Because of her creative and persistent marketing techniques, we decided to meet and discuss our options for buying and selling a home. We connected the moment we met her. Rabia was very knowledgeable about the current market and her proposal was second to none. On her first visit she even prepared a presentation to show us the recent comparable town homes and what they sold for in our area. Her modern approach, friendly personality, and confidence, definitely made a good impression. We decided to work with Rabia on selling our town home and purchasing a single-family home. She orchestrated the entire process for selling our town home and her execution was flawless. From staging, inspections, marketing, and open houses, she did a wonderful job. She definitely went above and beyond our expectations. Rabia sold our town home in 7 days and way over listing. We were so pleased with Rabia's business style; we decided to use her for selling our rental property. Once again, Rabia took care of business. The rental needed renovation and we wanted to sell it quickly. She put in tremendous effort to get it done and got it done right. Her organizational skills helped us sell the property quickly and again, over listing.
While in the process of selling these properties, she was also helping us find our dream home.
Through Rabia we also found our mortgage broker, Jason Smiley. The team at Guaranteed Rate was phenomenal. They were so efficient it made the purchasing process painless. Rabia made every endeavor possible to help us get our home.
She was such a joy to work with, extremely professional, organized, and committed to her clients. She took challenges head on and stayed focused on our goals. Rabia always took the time to answer or find answers to our questions and concerns. She was always available when we needed her and provided us with realistic honest advice. We have recommended her to our friends and family, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Canyon Heights, Fremont, CA.
Rabia helped us close on an amazing house in Fremont. This was our first home purchase and she really spent the time to explain every step of the process. Looking for a home and making offers can be a daunting experience, especially in a sellers’ market, but she made it as transparent as possible and provided amazing insight along the way. Best of all, she made the whole experience FUN! She’s incredibly easy to talk to and work with; you feel comfortable asking even “stupid” questions (which we had a lot of). We will definitely be recommending Rabia to all our friends.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Ponderosa, Sunnyvale, CA.
We really enjoyed working with Rabia. She sold our home for well above asking and in only a short couple of days! So, not only did Rabia get us top dollar for our home, she is so fun to work with. Rabia is knowledgeable, professional, caring and always goes above and beyond. She is super responsive, genuinely cared about us, and always has a solution for anything that comes up.
Rabia and her team took care of everything, whenever something needed to be done, it was so seamless. At the same time, Rabia was very transparent with us on all aspects. She always kept us informed on a timely manner and we really enjoyed the real time updates. She also staged our place and it was amazing.
At all times, we always felt comfortable with her -- selling your home can be stressful, but from the moment that we met her, we felt an instant click. We never hesitated to contact her, even to ask what we thought were stupid questions. She responded quickly and always had an answer for us.
Not only do we highly recommend Rabia, we would use her again, in a blink of an eye, if we ever needed an agent. We truly feel that we have made a great friendship along the way!
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Ponderosa, Sunnyvale, CA.
If we could give Rabia 10 stars we would! She is AMAZING! We needed to sell our house fast. We called her when we were out of town and she met us the next day hours after we returned home from our trip. Upon meeting her, she was warm and friendly yet extremely professional. I was so nervous about putting our home on the market and by the end of our first meeting I felt a sense of calm. I attribute that to Rabia. As Rabia predicted, we sold our house in less than a week and got over our asking price! This was a huge relief for us. From the contracts, to the staging, the marketing, the showings and beyond, Rabia handled everything expertly and with ease. We can honestly say that the whole process from start to finish was smooth and pretty painless. We believe that we had this experience because of Rabia.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.
We attended an open house in our neighborhood and were very impressed with the obvious extra effort put in by Rabia in the marketing of the home. She did everything possible to make the property memorable for potential buyers. Rabia was the first and only realtor we spoke with when we decided to put our home on the market. We intended to interview other realtors, but were so impressed with Rabia and her plan for marketing our home that we stopped our search and gave the listing to her practically on the spot. We were not disappointed. Not only did she list our home, she staged it, marketed it, producing professional flyers and a video tour of the home, and gave us the best possible advice every inch of the way. We had multiple offers after our home was on the market for only a few days. We are sure we couldn't have done it without her, and we are confident that Rabia would provide other home sellers and home buyers the same top notch service.
From our very first meeting until the closing of our town house in Sunnyvale, Rabia made our experience a smooth, stress free and a very pleasant one. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She always listened to our needs and expectations and did everything in her power to meet them. She was always within reach whenever we needed her. Her communication and problem solving skills are excellent. She is also a lovely person who always has a warm smile that brightens your day. Needless to say, the sale of our home was very easy and quick with the help of Rabia. We highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of a realtor. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for us Rabia. Dave and Zehra Layton
