This is the second time we’ve worked with Ciara. This go around, not only did we work with her on the purchase of our second home, but she was also up to the task of selling our condo at the same time - - no easy feat especially in today’s fast paced Bay Area market where contingent sales rarely get the time of day among sellers that want to sell with the least amount of obstacles. Strategy was very important in this particular purchase due to our circumstance and our approach prevailed! In short, my husband and I decided to move to the East Bay (Oakland) and was initially advised by Ciara to use an East Bay agent in hopes that we’d feel more comfortable working with someone equally familiar with that area as she is with San Francisco. Unfortunately that relationship was short lived (we just didn’t gel) and after having such a great experience with Ciara in purchasing our condo two and a half years ago, we decided we’d rather work with her despite Oakland not being her primary area and have no regrets! Please read my first review posted on March 15th, 2011 on many of the great things that makes Ciara a trusted partner and advisor. All those things still hold true today. Above all else, Ciara is tireless and will be your strongest advocate. She’ll listen to you whether you’re thoroughly confused on what you want or laser focused. She’s versatile, well informed, extremely accessible all the time (a must in a trusted agent) and will likely become a friend in the process…always a plus! I highly recommend her and feel confident we’ll be working with her in decades to come.
