Ratings & Reviews

Rumana Jabeen is a excellent real estate agent for so many reasons. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable on the local market, has great negotiating skills, and is very responsive. She knows how to market your property for the most exposure, walks the seller through various aspects of the experience with ease, and most importantly will work through any obstacles until they are resolved to provide her client the result they are looking for. She definitely knows her stuff, and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $750K in San Carlos, CA.

Rumana is a very smart and hard working agent helped us to find the right home that fits to our budget. We were able to buy a condo in 2 months which is pretty fast when you think how aggressive the market in Peninsula is. The key was to make it clear what your budget is and what you are looking for (which of course takes a few weeks to sync and understand each other). Once this is done, Rumana helped us a lot on not wasting our time for options that won't work, so, with also some luck we were able to focus our efforts to right offers and finally closed the offer with our current new condo.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.325M in Foster City, CA.

In this crazy sellers market we just bought a 3 Bed/3 Bath home off market!

This would not have happened without Rumana, she created this deal out of thin air and made it happen out of sheer will.

If you want an agent who knows what she is doing and has your best interests at heart, Rumana is the one to pick.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.425M in Foster City, CA.

Rumana is a great agent. She is an expert in the Foster City, Belmont, Redwood shore area. She sold tons of houses in Foster City in last few years. She knows every street, every school, and every region of Foster city and Belmont. Working with her, we felt very comfortable. She is very responsive and knowledgeable, but never pushing. I would strongly recommend Rumana, in particularly if you want to buy a house in peninsula of the SF bay area.

Sold a home in 2014 in Belle Monte, Belmont, CA 94002.

Rumana is amazing to work with. She's been our agent for both buying and selling and has no end to her energy level and ability to find the right match for you when you are buying. She has a good intuition on finding the right property for you and is not focused on just getting you into any house. She's a very skilled negotiator and is an excellent judge of the market and people.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $950K in El Granada, CA.

We would not hesitate to use Rumana Jabeen again whether as sellers or buyers for several reasons: 1. Immediate responsiveness to emails, phone calls or texting. Never left us wondering, always kept us in the loop. 2. Persistent! Long after we got discouraged, she kept us motivated and encouraged by consistently keeping a smile in her voice. 3. Legalities and transaction administration. She is familiar with each and every step from start to finish providing excellent guidance. 4. Extreme work ethic. No matter what it took to serve us; whether it was working late, on weekends, (even when she was on travel!), she kept the process going without any delays. 5. As they say in the Midwest, "she is good people". 5 Stars with no reservations!

Sold a home in 2014 in Baywood Knolls, San Mateo, CA 94402.

We chose Rumana Jabeen as a realtor to both sell our home in Foster City and buy our new home in San Mateo. We had a great experience working with Rumana. Being one of the most knowledgeable agents, she is highly respected amongst all real estate professionals. Rumana was thorough, honest, and prompt in responding to any questions. She never pushed us into making quick and hasty decisions. We had a stress free experience, as she diligently worked on our needs and provided us with multiple options. Rumana is very resourceful and gave us contacts for handyman work, painting, moving, and remodeling. Both transactions were completed within two months in this competitive market.

Bought a home in 2013 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.

Rumana is an amazing real estate agent. She will get you the best price, and she will not stop until she finds the house you want.

My husband and I had the best experience working with Rumana, and we have recommended her to anyone who says they are looking for a house.

She is the best agent we have ever worked with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.275M in Belmont, CA.

We are overjoyed--we just sold our home in Belmont for significantly more money than we ever imagined. For this, we credit our amazing realtor, Rumana Jabeen. From her initial walk-through of our house to her congratulatory “Your house has sold!” phone call last week, Rumana kept us informed every step of the way. Her knowledge of the mid-Peninsula real estate market is encyclopedic. Her meticulous attention to detail was evident throughout the sales process. In helping us fill out the dread disclosure form, Rumana was scrupulously honest, insisting that we reveal every issue we knew about. Her strategy of holding three open houses—immediately before and after Thanksgiving—and then accepting offers on a designated date worked like a charm. In the end, we received six offers, all above listing price.

Sold a home in 2013 in Belle Monte, Belmont, CA 94002.

I'd like to recommend Rumana Jabeen, a realtor that I used to both sell my home in Foster City and buy my new home in Belmont. Rumana is one of the most well prepared and skilled professionals I have met. And she clearly loves what she does. I would unequivocally recommend Rumana to my closest friends who are looking to buy or sell a home on the peninsula.

I decided to move forward with Rumana after interviewing five agents in person. I originally chose to work with Rumana for a number of reasons, but most importantly, because she answered my questions directly, with opinions backed by confidence and experience. Almost every other agent I spoke with provided vague non-answers, likely to avoid saying something that I didn't want to hear. Rumana provided very specific answers to my questions and was not afraid to put a stake in the ground when I asked for her opinion.

Throughout the sales process, Rumana provided me with very thoughtful guidance. She gave strong recommendations for repairs to do on the home which would likely provide a strong return for the cost. Rumana also gave direct guidance on how to price my home, given the competitive landscape. She had an unbelievable understanding of the market and knew exactly when competing homes were expected to hit the market. Timing was critical when we sold our home since there weren't many direct competitors at the time. We priced the home at a level where we both felt confident we would reach my target sales price. We received multiple offers and I was extremely pleased that we sold the home at a price higher than what I was expecting! I credit both Rumana's negotiating skills (I was quite amazed watching her talk to the various agents) as well as her thoughtful and comprehensive marketing plans.

Rumana impressed my wife and I so much with the process of selling our home that we decided to also use her to buy our next home. After a fairly short search, we found a home that we loved. And Rumana again provided extremely insightful guidance. Most importantly, I felt throughout the process very confident that Rumana would ensure that we made the right decisions that would make us happy. The purchase of our new home ended up being a bit complicated. And Rumana gracefully walked us and the other party through the process. In fact, in both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home, I watched as Rumana provided guidance to both realtors on the other side who appeared to be less experienced and less familiar with doing transactions in these markets.

Before these transactions, I was always a bit skeptical about using real estate agents as I had heard of others who tried to buy or sell their homes independently. Based on my experience with Rumana, I am confident that securing her services was the best decision we could have made.
