    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.4M in Baywood Knolls, San Mateo, CA.
    Abe helped my wife and I purchase a home earlier this month (Dec. ‘12). This low inventory market buyers are currently experiencing can be extremely frustrating. With the houses that we were targeting getting 5-10 offers each, we soon realized that unless we were prepared to significantly over-bid or come up with an all cash offer, we would need to go into each potential home with an innovative offer strategy. And here is an area where Abe particularly excels. I can honestly say that we would not be moving into the ideal home we were looking for if it wasn’t for Abe.

    Here are some more things about working with Abe that I really appreciated:

    -- He knows the Peninsula market extremely well. He was able to predict with remarkable accuracy how much homes would end up selling for.

    -- He works extremely hard for you-- going above and beyond. Quick example, while we were in escrow, the Bay Area had a week of severe rain storms. He decided to check on the house, went into the basement, and discovered that it had flooded. He immediately called the seller’s agent so she could take care of it before we were to move in.

    -- He is very well connected. I didn’t need an agent to tell me when houses hit the MLS. Anybody reading this review should be able to set up a simple alert. I wanted someone who could dig deeper and find off-market listings or approach potential sellers and convince them to sell their home. For the home we ended up purchasing, he alerted me 2 weeks before it hit the MLS, which gave us more time to evaluate this home.

    -- He is a pleasure to work with. I always felt like he was giving me advice as if he was giving it to a member of his family.

    I have always been skeptical of real estate agents. Well after I witnessed first hand all the value that Abe contributed to our lengthy house hunting process and closing, I now have to admit that some agents do earn every penny of their commision. Needless to say, I can wholeheartedly recommend Abe to anyone looking for a great agent.

    Sold a home in 2011.
    Abe helped me to purchase my 2nd house in San Carlos in May 2011, every bit of my interactions with him was positive - great communication skills, great follow up, availability and flexibility for clients, negotiations and strategy and closing the deal. My full time job is in the Purchasing business and even though I negotiate and purchase things for a living (I am an extremely particular and exacting client), I am still amazed with Abe's ability to manuever the real estate landscape and guide me towards a purchase I am really happy with. 5 months later, I am still in touch with Abe and my wife and I are still thankful for working with him.

    He is a specialist in the mid-peninsula market (we used him from Mountain View through Burlingame) and I highly recommend using his services - both listing and buying. My colleague who ended up using Abe for listing services also had great reviews about him.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Parkmont, Fremont, CA.
    I've never seen anyone with more energy and commitment. Abe's diplomatic approach toward all parties is impeccable. Professional, positive and very knowledgeable. The highest recommendation possible.
