My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Fremont real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

10/22/2014 - dan nessett
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Livermore, CA.

Early this year (2014), it became obvious that I needed to locate closer to my mother in order to provide her more care. Consequently, I decided to move from Fremont to Livermore. Since this wasn’t an emergency, I wanted to find a home that would be close to the independent living facility in which she resides and also was of similar quality to my Fremont home. This meant I was willing to wait a significant amount of time to find the “right” house in Livermore, but also meant once I purchased, I wanted to get my Fremont home sold quickly so I didn’t bear the financial burden of owning two homes.

I contacted Sandy about this and she agreed to help me. To be frank, I am picky about the location and condition of the residence in which I live. So, it took quite a while to find a new home (about 5 months). During this time, Sandy kept suggesting homes that came on the market (filtering out many that did not meet the criteria I had established) and did not lose heart because I turned most of them down. She continually worked with me to fine tune her understanding of what I was looking for and did this cheerfully and deliberately.

When we first started the search, she took me to several neighborhoods that she thought would suit my needs, some of which did not have homes for sale at that time. As it turns out, her instincts were spot on, since the home I bought 5 months later was in the neighborhood that she thought best met my needs. Homes in that area do not come on the market frequently. So, she was really interested in finding the best house for me, not just quickly getting a commission and moving on to the next client.

Once I had purchased the home in Livermore and moved in, she went into overdrive to get my Fremont home prepped for sale. She discussed with me the most financially beneficial improvements that would increase the price of the house. We developed an improvement plan and she found contractors to implement it quickly. The home went on sale about 5 weeks after I moved out (during which time contractors installed a new granite kitchen sink, replaced the electric range and hood, knocked out a half wall between the kitchen and living room, completely painted the interior and installed all new flooring). After being on the market for about 10 days, we had 5 offers, 3 of which were for substantially more than the asking price. While the first offer we accepted didn't work out, Sandy had lined up two other of the offers as backups (from years of experience she knows the first accepted offer doesn’t always succeed). We accepted one of backup offers and closed the sale about 1 month later.

I also need to mention that Sandy works with another Real Estate agent, Gigi, who provided significant help during my search. Gigi has a deep understanding of the Asian community, especially what they are looking for in a house. This was invaluable when deciding what improvements to the Fremont home would be most cost effective. Gigi also has contacts with various contractors that do high quality work at a reasonable price. I used some of these for work on both the Livermore and Fremont houses.

In summary, I would highly recommend Sandy and Gigi to anyone looking to either purchase or sell a home. They are consummate professionals and make their client’s welfare their first priority.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.15M in Livermore, CA.

It was the best experience we have had selling our home through Sandy. She gave constant attention to us and all matters of the transaction. The transaction was smooth because she paid for all of our inspections. The buyers knew what they were purchasing and therefore there were no problems or re-negotiating involved.

We would definitely recommend Sandy to any one. Call her...you will be glad you did!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Union City, CA.

I purchased my first home with Sandy Hermerding about 20 years ago. I had no idea what I was doing, what financing was or where the best place was to buy. Sandy took my hand and I ended up in a wonderful home that my family enjoyed for 10 years. Then, when we were ready, Sandy was there to sell it for us. Now, it was time to sell my mother's home. Mom had several "dress rehearsals" with Sandy and pulled out at the last minute. Sandy was so patient and kind to my mother. more so than i was.... This time mom was ready and serious. ....and Sandy was there with patience, a smile and a plan. Sandy knows her market and strategically priced our home with inspections completed. Not only did Sandy sell our house in 9 days.....she got us $50,000.00 over asking price. Considering the condition of the house (mom lived there 48 years with no major repair work done....but needed) Sandy got the job done and made it look easy. Sandy seems to know everyone and came to this project with buyers already in mind. She knows the market, has a very aggressive and strategic plan and a very impressive work history. Along with that, Sandy is a people person. She has perseverance, honesty, endurance, excellent negotiating skills and awesome organizational skills. And, she does all this but still makes you feel like family. I will always ask Sandy to help us in any real estate venture and I will continue to refer her to everyone I know.  More Less
