Andrew & Sylvia // Moving Up

“Last year, I asked Metis Real Estate to handle a complex project: sell my bachelor pad condo and upgrade to a larger condo for my wife and me, both in San Francisco.  Annie took the challenge and stepped up to the plate.  Right away Annie and her team gave us guidance and were transparent about the process.  She was honest and communicative.  Unexpectedly, the real estate market had a slight down turn but Annie somehow presented us with an offer at my lofty asking price!  Even better, less than two weeks later, our offer for a new condo was accepted...at less than asking!  She juggled both selling and buying simultaneously, while going between the seller, the buyer, our mortgage lender, and us seamlessly.  I don't know how she managed to handle everything so smoothly.  Throughout the whole process, she was calm, responsive, and had a can-do attitude.  How many agents out there say they installed a water pan under a stacked washer/dryer unit on their own?  Ultimately, the results speak for themselves: 1.) I sold my condo at my asking price 2.) We purchased our dream home 3.) My wife and I are still married after this journey.  When it comes time to look for our next home, Annie and Metis would be my first and only call. “

”Being new to the Bay Area, Annie showed me the ropes around the East Bay when I was looking for rental units. Later when I was looking to buy, she took me around all the different neighborhoods in Oakland. I was a very scatter-brain buyer but she helped me narrow down my focus so that we didn't waste our time chasing after the wrong house. After losing out on one place (which I didn't really love anyway), we had the perfect timing for the second place, and eventually we won the bid with some skillful negotiations on her part. I recommend Annie for her ability to read a buyer's needs, her knowledge of the Bay Area and her negotiation skills.”

“As a first-time homebuyer, I had the pleasure working with Annie for my residential condo search in San Francisco. Annie worked diligently and was always available when I had questions. We worked together and moved fast, which was really important in a competitive market like San Francisco. I am so glad that we eventually found the perfect condo and at the right price point. After we closed, Annie consistently check in with me to make sure my move was smoothly transitioned. I really enjoyed working with Annie and we stay friends since then!“

“As a first-time (and solo) homebuyer, it was extremely helpful to have Annie around when viewing houses. She had a good eye for things around the place of interest and great at asking questions that I would have never thought of. 
After a couple of initial viewings, she recognized quickly what my "style" was and the kind of place that would be most attractive to me, therefore appropriately filtering down the list of viewings.

Annie invested a considerable amount of her time driving me to not only the viewings but also around the surrounding neighborhoods which was really helpful in making a holistic decision. 

I really enjoyed working with her and we stay friends to this day, long after the close of the sale!”

“I had the pleasure of working with Annie for my family's home search in San Francisco Bay Area. Annie addressed all our concerns/questions for the search process. She had the knowledge to make us feel comfortable about the process. Eventually, we decided to expand our search to Sacramento. Although Annie did not specialize in the Sacramento real estate market, she was able to connect us with an agent in the area and now we're in escrow. 

I highly recommend Annie, whether you need help buying or selling your home.”
