Vicki helped us buy our home in Redwood City in spring of 2013. With three month old twins, an untenable rental situation, and a market in which every house we looked at seemed to be attracting more and more bids, we were frustrated and a little panicked. Vicki both helped up keep our cool and find a house quickly.
We had settled on buying a house in the Woodside Plaza neighborhood, but nerves had us looking all over the place to get a house NOW. Vicki gently kept us focused on the geographical area we wanted. She even took a call from us on a Saturday evening after we had randomly looked at a house in Foster City (???) and ever so graciously reminded us that we were being silly.
We ended up getting a house in precisely the neighborhood we wanted. It was not the kind of stylishly staged, painted, and landscaped house that attracts an anxiety-inducing number of bids, and with Vicki's guidance and connections, we got it pretty easily in the end.
So how do I feel about our purchase a year later? This is the real test, and we are very satisfied. I think Vicki had a great sense for what was important to us - a better sense than we had at the time, really. The location is exactly right: we are on one of the quieter, non-thoroughfare streets in Woodside Plaza. The house, too, is the right size and completely meets our family's needs. Someday we would like to do a bit of interior remodeling and design, but that is icing on the cake.
Vicki was always, always responsive to our calls and messages, very knowledgable about our targeted area, unhurried and focused in what seemed to us like a scary market for buyers, and her connections ultimately helped us get our house. Couldn't ask for more than that. Thanks, Vicki!
