Bought a home in 2010.

When I first met Rebecca at an open house, she knew of and talked about every house for sale in the area, what was wrong with it, whether it would meet our needs, and whether it was over or under priced for the current market. I was very impressed. I asked Rebecca to show us some of the houses, and because we were adamant about finding a house with everything on our checklist, and we weren't in a hurry, Rebecca spent literally years and countless weekends helping us to eventually find the home of our dreams. She stuck with us even after we pulled out of a sale at the last minute due to an unfavorable inspection report. She helped us negotiate a great price, and helped us through the inspections, paperwork, and initial repairs. I can't recommend Rebecca enough.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.225M in Los Gatos, CA.

We recently purchased our first house in the US in the Los Gatos mountains. I am so glad that we found Rebecca to help us. Rebecca is passionate about what she does and really wants to make sure that her clients find their ideal home. Her knowledge of the area is second to none, and her honest and open approach to buying a mountain home really helped us understand the pros and cons of each property and location. While working on the purchase, Rebecca was behind us every step of the way, always keeping a calm head and pointing us in the right direction when the process became difficult. If you are considering buying a house in the mountains then consider Rebecca, she will not let you down! I will definitely work with her again.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.225M in Los Gatos, CA.

I don't know what we would have done if it was not for Rebecca - The process of buying and selling a home is hard enough on its own. Doing both at the same time is exhausting and very emotional. But Rebecca has the great skill of seeing the big picture, keeping things moving along and keeping her clients calm in not so calm situations. She is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to her job and other areas of realistate. She knows the mountains and can direct you in whichever direction you want to go. She always has your back; no matter what, Rebecca was right there to take care of it. One call, one email, and she was on it and still is. I go to her for mountain advise all the time - she is a great source information and if she can't get you the answer, she will find the person who can! Not only did we find one of the best realtors on the mountain, we also found a good friend!  More Less
