Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Gilroy, CA.
We met Steve and Lisa at an open house, before we knew anything about the home buying process or even if it was the right time for us to buy! They helped us get all of our ducks in a row with a pre-approval, so we knew exactly how much house we could afford. Although we found our dream home on the first showing, they were happy to show us more homes just to be sure. Steve and Lisa warned us that we could be in for a long ride with our short sale, but we successfully closed within a couple of months. Nearly three years later and we still call it our dream home. They were a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be going back to Steve and Lisa for any future purchases.

I had the greatest experience working with Steve and Lisa. They helped me to determine my budget, find the right neighborhood, and secure the perfect house for my family in the Santa Teresa/Sakamoto community. Not only did they negotiate a great price on my behalf, they helped me understand my options, recommended fantastic contractors, and guided me throughout the entire transaction. I have recommended them to friends and family who have come to the same conclusion I have; They do a great job, they care about their clients, and they are experts in their field.

Steve and Lisa,
I just wanted to send a note to say how grateful I am for all that you did for me in selling my condo in Saratoga. As you know, I initially did not know if I wanted to rent the unit furnished, rent it unfurnished, or sell it outright. You were willing to approach all three options to find out what was available. After I gave my go ahead, you addressed my needs immediately. Given your far reaching ability, e.g., contacts, websites, etc., we got both rental opportunities and purchase offers very quickly. We decided the best option was to sell the unit. From that point you graciously handled EVERYTHING for me. Here are some of the many services you provided that I am so grateful for:
• Hired local contractors to perform needed repairs/décor enhancements, e.g., plumbing, rug cleaning, etc.,
• Introduced yourselves to the upstairs neighbor gaining her respect and giving her a feeling of comfort,
• Advertised the rental/purchase options and conducted open house events,
• Worked on a number of offerings for both renting and purchasing,
• Helped me negotiate and enhance the final offer,
• Engaged a Title company to handle all of the necessary paperwork and processing actions including, but not limited to:
? Prorating taxes
? Prorating condo fees
? Paying off my mortgage
? Handling other settlement charges
? Providing finalized paperwork on all aspects of the sale
• Arranged the shipment of some furniture to my sons on the East Coast and coordinated the pickup of other household items by another relative,
• Set up, advertised, and conducted an Estate Sale for the leftover property I no longer wanted,
• Brought worthy left over items to a local charity and sent me the receipts, and
• Cleared the property of any remaining trash items and made the unit presentable for the new owner.
I am so satisfied with everything you did for me and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication and expertise in this matter. You are not just expert realtors, but also very good friends.
All my best,

We want to take this time to say thank you for everything both of you did for us. The time and dedication you showed made this entire process less difficult than we thought possible. From searching for homes with-in the price range, showing us the homes and negotiating the price and closing costs/deals, you far surpassed our expectations. Even at the point when we almost gave up on the search, you somehow miraculously manifested our ideal home! Only a team with the contacts, the dedication, and the knowledge such as you two have could possibly make that happen.
You both were able to answer our emails/questions in a timely manner, and made all of our meetings/showings fit into our schedule. You not only answered our questions, but provided more information to help us understand those answers. And when dealing with outside inspectors and vendors, you were able to ensure we had the best service and price. You even showed up to a scheduled inspection that we could not be there exactly on time for!
During these times of an up and down real estate market, we had our hesitations in dealing with agents who only looked out for their final result of selling and getting paid. We had our concerns on if we would make the right decisions and be given the right information. You never misled us, you never made promises that you couldn’t keep and you never made us believe that something was going to happen that wasn’t.
What we are trying to say is simply, YOU’RE THE BEST!! Again, none of this could have happened if it was not for both of you and we are truly grateful.

Steve and Lisa are such a wonderful helpful, knowledgeable, hard working people. The best we can say is that we started our first house search with REALTOR, and ended our search with real friends!
Steve and Lisa listen to find the house you want. They really listen to what you are saying as you are walk through houses. We never felt like we were one of their many clients. We always felt like we were their ONLY client, special, important and worth any effort. They were available for any questions ... none too big or too small.
Everybody loves great house, but, few realtors can find perfect house for you. Steve and Lisa not just found the perfect house for us and their other clients, they also put our best interest at heart and made our purchase the best deal for us with their experience, knowledge, patience, friendliness and understanding of their customers' needs, especially their wonderful negotiation skills!
Words cannot describe the extra effort Steve and Lisa put in to buying our first house and we have been kept recommending our friends to them and also expect they find our second house soon.
Steve, Lisa, we like to thank you so much for all your help in making our dream a reality and best wishes your new success!

Steve and Lisa Guerrero are the best in the business. My husband and I had spent 9 months looking for a home with another realtor. We met Steve at and open house, he took some time to get to know us and found us a perfect home for us that day. With his knowledge of the area and business, it was that easy!
Since then, he and his wife, Lisa, have helped us sell our condo and we also referred my mother-in-law to them among many other friends and coworkers. Working with Steve and Lisa has always been a pleasurable experience. They have a way of helping you see the whole picture and are there to help you through the decision making process each and every step.
Steve and Lisa aren't the typical realtors. They really do take the time to know you. Working with them has become a lasting relationship. I'm so glad we ran into Steve at that open house!
This team is #1 in my book. Steve and Lisa know the Bar Area very well and work extremely hard for their clients to accomplish the business goals set in the beginning.
They've earned my respect because they take the time to listen to your real estate goals, provide advice on how to best accomplish them, while ultimately making it happen…which makes all the difference. They also have their own beautiful family, so they truly value doing what's best for your family!!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.
I have been in the area a long time and I knew exactly what I wanted. So, when the condo I had my eye on came on the market I engaged Steve and Lisa to help me get it. I wanted to use my VA loan with no money down in a market where there are multiple offers and people are coming with all or a lot of cash. I shopped around for a lender and ended up using one that Steve and Lisa referred me to because he was local, experienced with VA loans and very responsive. This team turned out to be critical in my ability to close on the home I wanted. All were available and responsive to the sellers inquiries during the days, nights and weekends. There were multiple offers but the seller accepted mine with assurance from my team that we could close the deal. The transaction was flawless and in less than 30 days the condo was mine. I really don't think I could have done it without Steve and Lisa's experience, their local connections and strategic collaboration and negotiation skills.
