~Client Testimonials~

____________________________________________________________________ 

We appreciate all your diligent hard work, Lou, on our behalf to sell 2133 Easton! You are very good at what you do and we won't hesitate to recommend you to friends in the future.

                                                                                         Libby & Ron Longinotti


 

 

I thank you over and over again for all you did for us in the sale of John's house, and also my daughter's condo in Foster City when she moved to San Diego. You got top dollar both times and I give people your name every time I hear someone who is selling or buying a house.


                                                                                           Marcia Parish, Burlingame







 “We have used Lou in three transactions within the past five years- all in Burlingame...AT EVERY TURN, LOU HAD OUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND.  HE WAS NOT AGGRESSIVE WITH US BUT WAS TENACIOUS FOR US.  Yet he did not waste our time showing us properties unfit for us.  His foremost goal was to find us exactly what we wanted and he spent a good bit of time (nay months) working diligently on our behalf.  In our latest transaction, Lou masterminded a simultaneous three home escrow – a touchy trade that required a level-headed, patient and determined skipper.  Lou makes a point to stay in touch with us now well after our last transaction to check in and to give us a perspective in the marketplace.

“I don’t think it would have been possible to move as fast as we did in purchasing this property. Not only were you able to pull all the pieces –from banks to inspections to insurance, but you gave me a sense of confidence that I could trust your word.  That meant a lot, considering we were looking for a fifteen day escrow period.  IT'S ONE THING, LOU, TO DO WHAT I SUSPECT SOME PEOPLE DEFINE AS "THE JOB OF A REAL ESTATE AGENT".  IT'S ANOTHER THING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE AFTER OUR CLOSING, PROVIDING US ARCHITECT AND CONTRACTOR BIDS FOR OUR ADDITION. THAT WAS JUST ANOTHER TYPICAL TYPE OF SERVICE THAT, WHILE WE DON'T TAKE FOR GRANTED, WE HAVE COME TO EXPECT FROM YOU.  Thank you for that.”

“ Dear Lou, We both wanted to tell you again how happy & excited we are about our impending new home.  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HONESTY, GUIDANCE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING & KINDNESS ON THE VERY BRIEF BUT CHAOTIC 2 WEEKS.  We are truly lucky to have been given the opportunity to purchase such a beautiful home in Burlingame too!  We will always thank you for helping make our 1st time home buying experience as positive as possible.

"We had contacted several realtors prior to working with Lou.  HE WAS RECOMMENDED TO US BY A FRIEND WHO SPOKE HIGHLY OF HIM, AND WE WERE NOT IN ANY WAY DISAPPOINTED.  In fact he was exceptional in all respects, making a sale well above asking price in two weeks.   It is obvious that Lou is highly respected amongst his peers and has a good network of colleagues which adds to his ability to find the appropriate buyer.”

“When my gardener couldn’t come in before the scheduled photographer, Lou rolled up his sleeves and trucked in bags of mulch and flats of flowers.  He trimmed trees, planted annuals, and laid down much like a pro….Most importantly, LOU'S EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE REAL ESTATE MARKET GAVE ME A GREAT DEAL OF COMFORT AND TRUST IN HIS ADVICE.…He was proactive in conducting due diligence to qualify the presented offers and most importantly, had a prompt, reasoned recommendation based on our specific priorities and circumstances…In conclusion, my husband and I had a terrific experience working with Lou and wholeheartedly recommend him.

“ My mother passed away in October, and my brother and I, who lived in far-flung regions of the country, needed a special person to help us prepare the house and handle the sale…My parents had lived in their home for over 20 years and although it had been well maintained and cared for, much had to be done: packing, moving and spiffing up.  Lou quickly arranged, with inspectors, contractors, movers, etc., to ease the big job along.  He seemed to read our minds and was always one step ahead of things in a most reassuring way.  HE WAS ALWAYS MINDFUL OF THE MONUMENTAL TASKS AND EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF THE RECENT DEATH OF THE LAST PARENT AND CLOSING DOWN THE FAMILY HOME.…We highly recommend Lou for his integrity, attention and detail and great communication skills.

“Brooke and I want to thank you again for the exceptional job you did in selling our home in Burlingame…  Your choice on the listing price proved to be perfect.  In addition, your experience and superior knowledge gave you an edge on the buyer’s agents.  Your extraordinary negotiating skills resulted in a higher sales price.  WITHOUT EXAGGERATION, WE ARE CONVINCED THAT HAVING YOU ON OUR SIDE RESULTED IN $10,000-$20,000 IN INCREASED PROFIT.  WE WERE IMPRESSED THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS WITH YOUR COOL AND CALM GUIDANC AND PROFESSIONALISM.  This was particularly important to us because Brooke, at 6 months pregnant, was in no position to endure additional stress.  Above all, Lou, we appreciated your kind and generous demeanor.  You made the whole process a surprisingly painless ordeal.  We both appreciate the fact that you worked overtime to sell our property…  My advice will be to hire you immediately, follow your advice, and then relax and allow you to do your job.”

“We didn’t expect to grow old but we did.  And with this came diminishing joy in the home ownership and desire for an easier life.  But the intricate details of selling a home intimidated us to the point of standstill….  That’s when you came in and we’ll always stand in awe of the calmly efficient way you managed the sale of our Burlingame home, guiding us throughout the real estate jungle and seeing us ensconced in carefree security at The Sequoias, San FranciscoAT ALL TIMES WE WERE CONFIDENT THAT OUR ANXIETIES WERE UNDERSTOOD, OUR INTEREST WERE BEING SERVED AND THAT YOU HONESTLY CARED.  YOU TREATED US AS YOU MIGHT HAVE TREATED YOUR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS AND YOU HAD OUR COMPLETE TRUST.

“How do we begin to thank you for making our dream reality….we love Burlingame and the wonderful hospitality of our neighbors.  THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS HAVE BEEN (TO SAY THE LEAST) A BIT STESSFUL, BUT YOU SEEMED TO KEEP US GROUNDED AND CALM!  IT WAS SUCH A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH YOU...."

“I can’t believe the transaction went so smoothly, thanks to you and your very positive attitude!...I chose the Brokerages from signs in the neighborhood, and I called and made appointments with three other agents after explaining that I, too, was an agent from Marin, looking for preliminary information before I decided how to proceed.  I made it clear that I wasn’t sure whether to list myself, co-list or whatever.  YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE TO TREAT ME LIKE A KNOWLEDGEABLE ASSOCIATE, GIVING ME EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED WHICH WAS YOUR PERSONAL EXPERTISE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND MARKET....YOU TOOK ME AT MY WORD AND HONORED MY POSITION....So, thank you very much for a great job; it was really a pleasure having you represent us.
