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.
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.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Belmont, CA.
Was referred by a relative to Rumana and I am so glad that I got to work with her. Rumana worked with me late into the afternoon on short notice after I found a nice condo. As I was new to the buying process, Rumana went through the monstrous stack of documents with me making sure I knew everything that I was signing and getting myself into.

Thanks to her expertise, I was to win over the other potential buyers/bidders of the house. Afterward, she worked with my Escrow agent and Mortgage agent in a very professional way to get everything done by closing date. I am now a very proud owner of beautiful condo and this couldn't be possible without Rumana!

Sold a home in 2011.
Rumana is the hardest working agent out there and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us every step of the way even when we picked out a house in the Marin area. I wouldn't hesitate to have her help again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2001 in Foster City, CA.
I generally don't like to give five-star ratings as it appears too effusive, as if it should be followed by "LOL!!!!" (It's the same reason I rarely use exclamation points). Still, we'd be hard-pressed to find any category in which Rumana is less than stellar as a real estate agent. She busted her hump to find us a home in the Peninsula at a price far below market. She's smart, tough, proactive, meticulous, and (far too) available to her clients. So regrettably, I must give her a grudging "Woohoo," because she's great.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Northwest Hillsdale, San Mateo, CA.
We listed our home with Rumana in October 2010 in a very difficult seller's market, complicated by the fact we relocated to Asia two weeks after listing the house. Despite a distance of 8,500 miles, Rumana managed a very trying and complicated sales process for us, maximizing our success to close the home at a price that we were comfortable with. She worked extensively with the buyer's agents and the various financing institutions involved to ensure the deal was completed. She was very responsive, understood the process well, and worked diligently to get the deal done.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.05M in Foster City, CA.
We were first time buyers, and Rumana’s extensive knowledge in real estate transactions help sailed us into our new home smoothly. She walked us thru the whole home buying process, in both multiple offers and underbidding situations. She is professional and dedicated and clearly loves and enjoys her work. Her negotiation skills are extremely effective, and she kept us in the loop before and after any communications with the sellers and their agent. I highly recommend Rumana as a real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $725K in Belmont, CA.
Rumana is super detail orientated and works very, very hard for her clients. She was able to pinpoint exactly what we were looking for, help us narrow down neighborhoods and had excellent advice on what to look for (and what to avoid). She's incredibly responsive and not tied to only one form of communication - something that is VERY important to me. I can't always take a phone call while working, and she is great about using email, text, etc to get information to you. I would not hesitate to recommend Rumana!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.0M in Foster City, CA.
I can see why Rumana is in the top 1% of producers for Coldwell Banker. Her knowledge of the Peninsula real estate market and it's associated client base is second to none. Her sales strategy and tactics are very effective and in my case far exceeded expectations by bringing in the best offer at 109% of the listing price. Rumana has a portfolio of contractors and repair people to make a fixer upper look like a brand new home for a resonable cost. Rumana is knowledgeable, responsive, professional and extreemly effective in getting results whether you are a buyer or a seller. She will always watch out for your best interests. Thak you Rumana for a job well done.
