Team reviews

We recently sold our Townhouse in the Parkmont area of Fremont and bought a single family home in the Sunset area of Livermore using Sophie and her team. My wife and I were very impressed with the experience and knowledge she possessed about the homes in our area as well as the area of interest.<br/><br/>Right from the beginning of the selling process, Sophie advised us to complete small improvements to our property to maximize the value. Sophie provided a referral for a contractor and monitored the progress. Sophie and her Team provided an excellent open house experience with attractive staging and flyers. The staging of our town home and marketing was so appealing that we had 80 families show up during the two weekends of our open house. She even provided a moving service to relocate our furnishings to our new home. On our purchase the entire process was smooth and we were able to close on our town home and three days later close on our new purchase. Both transactions were smooth.<br/><br/>Lastly, Sophie was very good at pricing our property and negotiating with our buyer to get us the best offer. We would definitely recommend Sophie of Better Homes and Gardens for any real estate transaction. They have a full team of dedicated professionals for every aspect of the transaction and kept us well in the loop at every stage.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Glenmoor, Fremont, CA.

Sophie helped us through the entire home buying process, from location to specifications to negotiations to the loan. Her professionalism, honest approach and attention to details made the whole experience very pleasurable for my wife and me. We spent about 3 months with Sophie hunting for homes in the bay area before we finalized our home. Through the entire process, Sophie did not influence any pressure on us towards closing deals. She was patient, attentive and made us very comfortable.

Her education and successful track record in high technology firms carries forward into her real estate business as she puts these skills to use during the evaluation and negotiation process. She accompanied my wife and me to every home that we evaluated and provided an insightful, intelligent and unbiased opinion of the property. We quickly grew to trust her opinion. Thanks to her keen eye we avoided some properties which looked great on the surface, but would have been bad decisions in the long run. Sophie is also a very smart negotiator. She helped us save tens of thousands of dollars through her strong negotiation skills.

Anyone who has Sophie on their side is lucky. She will go to bat for you through the whole process. She will be direct and honest with you and has your needs as the priority. The previous owners were supposed to provide a new dryer for us as a part of the home sale. When they provided us with an old used dryer, Sophie went out of her way and provided us with a new dryer with her own funds. Kudos!!!

Her video online would give you a great feeling for her approach. I highly recommend Sophie.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Livermore, CA.

Sophie and I spent over an hour on the phone in our first conversation. She asked leading questions and quickly learned exactly what we were looking for. We met the next morning and she showed us the listings for 5 houses. 4 of them were in the exact 3 square mile area we were hoping to find our dream home in, and 1 that was farther away but offered all of the features we were looking for.

The first house she showed us proved to be the perfect home for our family! It was not in the specified 3 square miles, but it was EXACTLY perfect!! Sophie was able to extract what I wanted from our conversation, not what I was asking for (apparently those 2 things are different...)

We looked at the other houses, but my wife and I were sure we had found our dream home. After talking to Sophie about comps in the area, and if the asking price was reasonable, Sophie called the listing agent and gave a heads up that we would be making an offer. Armed with details provided by the listing agent, Sophie helped coach us into an offer she was confident would net us our dream home.

We were so excited and sat watching the phone...the very next day our offer was accepted!! We had our dream home!!!

Sophie recommended a finance company to work with and with Sophie driving full force, we were able to go from offer to funding in 18 business days! I learned after closing that Sophie had been in the underwriters office every day for a week pushing this loan to fund and close because she knew how excited we were to move.

I can not give a higher recommendation or praise to Sophie. She has earned my business forever, and I am sure she will do the same for you.
