Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Whether you're buying your first home, downsizing, or looking to invest in Real Estate, I will guide you through the process with my trademark diligence, integrity and endless enthusiasm.  I look forward to becoming your trusted advisor.

 
I know how special the Bay Area is.  After graduating from UCLA with a Political Science degree, my husband and I lived and worked in many cities throughout the U.S. – from Los Angeles to Chicago to Seattle to Dallas.  We came back to the Bay Area and selected Menlo Park as the place, above all others, to put down roots and raise our two children.  
 
Prior to joining Alain Pinel, I enjoyed a 15-year career in marketing with ad agencies such as J. Walter Thompson and DDB Needham.
 
I'm a dedicated volunteer for both of my children's schools, Hillview Middle School and Castilleja School.  I've had the honor of serving as a Wishgranter for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.  My extensive community involvement allows me council families on schools, community programs and family resources.  I'm also an avid basketball fan and player. 

I'm a member of the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors and the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors.

Whether your move is across the country or around the corner, I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your real estate dreams.

Ratings & Reviews

I write to express our appreciation for Mandy Safka’s services in helping my wife and me find a house in Menlo Park. Mandy was great! My wife and I began seriously searching for agents in late 2013. We talked to about 10 agents at various open houses. We thought Mandy was approachable, candid, and knowledgeable, and we selected her amongst all the people with whom we spoke. She worked very hard for us to find us the right house. She seemed to work all the time, and she always called back shortly after we tried her if not available when we called. Ultimately, Mandy helped us find a great house, after identifying it for us before it even went on the market. After the closing, she continued to work for us in providing names of service people to help us with the transition. We selected Mandy amongst numerous people with whom we spoke, and never regretted it for a moment. We highly recommend her!

Bought a home in 2014 in Devonshire, San Carlos, CA 94070.

Mandy is a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. She was able to assist us with the complicated and challenging process of purchasing a Bay Area home while living in another state. We understand that our purchase of a house within a couple of months of beginning the process is rare. Our friends consider us lucky. I blame Mandy. Without her expert assistance - having quickly identified exactly the kind of house we were looking for and zeroing in on the best houses to look at during our brief house hunting visits - I know we wouldn't now be homeowners.

Work with Mandy and you'll be in great hands.

We love our new house. Thanks Mandy.

03/07/2014 - formula 81
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in East Palo Alto, CA.

Mandy’s knowledge of the overall real estate process and its local subtleties combined with her desire to get to know her clients makes for an optimum combination. Of particular significance was that she was able to pass on her knowledge in a way that helped me make good decisions. Every time I became frustrated or emotionally blinded Mandy patiently guided me out of it by refocusing me on the priorities we had previously established. She was extremely responsive and went out of her way to make things convenient for me. What was especially helpful was Mandy’s ability to read and then compliment my energy and time commitments. Thus, when I was fully engaged and traveling throughout the area looking at homes she was providing me all the background information I needed and ready to show me a home whenever I was available. However, when I needed to take a break from the search, she continued to work in the background but did not press me. Overall, Mandy’s professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to her customers are outstanding and make the real estate process exciting, enjoyable, and ultimately rewarding.  More Less
