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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.

Thanks for everything Rabia!!! Lu and Adrianna

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.

Sold a home in 2013 in South Shore Port, CA 94089.

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

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $850K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.

Rabia was highly professional, attentive and superb at assisting us through the process of selling and buying our new home. Our home sold within a week, as Rabia expected it would. She also got top dollar for our property, making it a new record for our area.

Rabia was also very helpful with assisting us with our new home. She would quickly make appointments to get us into properties we wanted to see. Ultimately, we ended up with a private sale and Rabia ended up representing us and the seller to get us into our new home smoothly. She went well beyond the call of duty.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.

We met Rabia at one of the Open houses in our community, and were very impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of the local area. We set up an initial appointment with her soon after and we were so glad we did. Right from our first meeting with her where she discussed in detail her approach and marketing plan, we were convinced that she was the right person to work with in selling our home. Throughout the process, she was extremely helpful, communicative and responsive to our needs. She got us a great price and she even got us 2 months of free rent back. We would have even used her services but the area we were looking in was far away. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the South Bay.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $850K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.

When I decided to sell my townhome in Sunnyvale I wanted to sell it myself. I am a high-tech sales professional and I have studied some Real Estate. Plus with my investments I was pretty familiar with the process.

When I was researching the comparable homes in my neighborhood I had the fortune of meeting Rabia at an open house. I immediately liked her attitude, professionalism and thought she really knew her stuff. It took me awhile but I convinced myself to not sell the home myself and to work with her instead. Basically I just wanted the maximum value for my home and did not want to pay too much in commission.

Rabia really came through and she was able to successfully market and sell my home in about 4 days. Not only did she navigate all the paperwork that I did not anticipate but she dealt with contingencies, negotiation, cleaning, repairs, locks, keys, and just a host of issues that you never think of when you are selling.

Bottom line: Rabia got me more money than I ever would have imagined for the home even in the hot Bay Area market of 2013. Because she got me so much more I really paid no commissions and walked away with more than I would have if I sold it myself.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Ponderosa, Sunnyvale, CA.

There are a lot of realtors sending us fliers but Rabia's fliers stood out. I noticed she has that special or extra touch like a pumpkin during Halloween, recipes, food was served on some of her open houses. So I thought, if she gives such extra attention to these things then as a realtor she would also give an extra mile to be of service. When I reached out to her, I was still at that stage of contemplating to sell our house and buy another for my children's sake. She responded immediately within an hour. We strategize and work out a timeline in selling and buying our house. She showed us houses that fit my criteria and joined us in viewing during open house. On some weekends when we can't go, she was able to arrange a private viewing. We did this complicated thing during the time when we were busy with families coming over for a visit. She remembers everything we talked about not only business but personal things such as my son's birthday & she even has a surprise for him. In selling our house, we were happy we got over and beyond our asking price. That is because she is an area specialist and knows how to price our house. She helped us stage our house and lent some of her stuff to spruce up the place. She hired a professional photographer to take awesome pictures of our house and that really helps attract buyers. On the buying side, her advice was really point on and we were able to offer a reasonable price for what we wanted. She even help watch our son while all of us go to the property the second and third time. Overall, Rabia is very confident in representing us. A skilled negotiator esp on the selling side. She made the transaction of selling and buying a house so effortless. My husband recommended her to his boss so that says we are a very satisfied client.

Rabia helped to sell our townhome in Sunnyvale. From the first moment we met her, she has been extremely professional and friendly. She really listened to our needs and understood our priorities given our timing and schedule. She made the entire process very simple and painless (from scheduling the inspections, staging the home, open house and the offer) and she was always available to answers our millions of questions. Rabia is extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding area. She kept us informed on the market trend and would update her marketing plan/strategies accordingly. She helped us secure an offer that was above and beyond our original expectation.

Bought a home in 2013.

My wife and I have just bought a home in Mountain View. This was difficult because this is a seller's market. Rabia has been very helpful with preparing offers and the paperwork. She used her relationships with other agents to find properties before they even came on the market, which is probably why we have a home now. We're very thankful for Rabia's help.
