Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in San Rafael, CA.
We were referred to Warren by one of his colleagues, and we couldn't have been happier with his service.
As first time buyers, my wife and I were of course overwhelmed with the process of home buying, from the inspection and offer/bidding process to negotiations with the sellers and finalizing the requisite stacks of paperwork.
Warren was completely patient with us, carefully explaining everything in terms we could understand, and made the process as simple as possible.
We also found Warren incredibly responsive. He replied to our messages quickly, and was proactive with his communications with us throughout the entire process. This was a frustration-free experience.
Warren's friendly demeanor and calm attitude kept what could have been a very stressful experience very easy and enjoyable.
We'd recommend working with Warren without hesitation.
Warren has my strongest recommendation. As a beginning home buyer in the Bay Area, I interviewed many realtors and he stands a cut (or two!) above others. Warren helped us look at homes all over Marin County, from Mill Valley to Novato. We were impressed with his detailed knowledge of various neighborhoods and his honest assessments of homes. Warren is professional and experienced, but what really set him apart was his pleasant personality and gentle patience. We found Warren a pleasure to work with and would not hesitate to deal with him again.
Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $425K in Greenbrae, CA.
Warren had incredible patience with me as I changed homes and lifestyles. I needed to see many places and discover many new areas as I had lived in one place for nearly 20 years. He drove me around, explained market trends, and did a good job describing the fabric of each community we visited. When we finally found the right home, he was very thorough in the process of the purchase and even helped me with advice on things like insurance, mortgage, and other matters once I moved in. He is a great resource and a very kind person.

Warren did a great job -- priced my house just right, had a buyer in 2 days, provided guidance through the entire process, and even held an extra open house at my request. He was totally responsive, returning calls and texts and emails immediately. I highly recommend him.

Warren helped us look for, negotiate and buy our house. We were first time homebuyers who weren't even sure we could afford a new home, so we really had no idea what we were doing. Prior to meeting with us, he encouraged us to speak to a mortgage broker. We did and that gave us a good idea of our budget, but we still had no idea what we were looking for. Warren walked us through a very helpful process. He showed us homes in the upper part of our price range as well as the lower part of the price range; he showed us a variety of houses and made it clear that we needed to see a lot of houses so that if we could start to understand what we don't want and would be ready to recognize what we did want.
We purchased in 2009, when there were a lot of foreclosures and short sales, and Warren helped us steer clear of short sales because of the difficulty in getting all the right approvals. When we bid on the house we wanted, it was a foreclosure, and Warren was up front with us that it was a newer procedure for him, but he also never wavered in helping get all the various sign offs on our bid. He stayed on the seller's representative and got our bid approved quickly. Warren helped my husband navigate the inspection process, particularly important in a foreclosure.
But here is when you know an agent will go to bat for you. As we were coming to the end of escrow, we had planned it out that our purchase would go through at the end of the month so we had given notice on our apartment and had three days between purchase and our move out date. I found out that the mortgage was having issues due to a merger at the bank and our close date might move because of it. I called Warren to ask how this would impact the sale and trying to figure out what it would mean we would do with our stuff. He answers the phone and tells me he is sitting in our mortgage broker's office working it all out. He was there to put pressure on them and to make sure it happened. And he was successful. We closed on time with a mortgage executed on the first day our broker was with the new bank.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Warren. We have sent multiple friends to him. We felt that his process, attentiveness and dedication helped us get through. We felt that we learned an abundance of new information in the two months we were purchasing our home, and it would have been completely overwhelming without Warren's support.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $750K in San Rafael, CA.
Warren sold a duplex for us in 2005 in San Rafael, CA and then represented us in the purchase of a home in 2010 in San Rafael, CA..
We would recommend Warren to any potential buyer/seller for his expertise, efficiency, helpfulness and willingness to go the extra step in assisting us as a client. Our last purchase was a foreclosure and Warren expertly guided us through the difficult process and helped us to avoid some potentially expensive pitfalls along the way. It was a pleasure working with Warren and we will certainly use him again if we decide to sell any of our local properties.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Fairfax, CA.
Warren is totally professional, honest, and upfront with advice. He sold our home of 26 years for full asking price and a very short escrow. He then found us the perfect rental while he finds us a new home to purchase. We are senior citzens and it has been the best Real Estate experience we have ever had. Can't say enough wonderful things about him!
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Saint Helena, CA.
Compared to other agents I've worked with, Warren was the most responsive, knowledgeable, and available. Plus he gave me great ideas to make my house more appealing to buyers, and went out of his way to determine the right selling price. He’s personable and comfortable to work with. I especially appreciated his honesty and his working hard to sell my house in a terrible real estate market.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $625K in San Rafael, CA.
We had to sell our home under stress in 2011 and Warren was extremely helpful in every aspect of the sale. He advised us as to what we had to do to get the place ready for sale in a difficult market and he even helped us get the appropriate people do do the work. We got the best deal possible and everything happened in a timely manner. He is also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet!
