"IMO Sylvia is the hardest-working realtor in San Francisco and at every step of the process delivered. As a remote seller in another state, I relied on Sylvia to project manage home improvements and HOA politics in a tricky sale, which she did with great diplomacy and diligence. When it came to pricing and selling strategy, she was data-driven and had the support of an excellent team. We got the sale done on the timeline we set out to do — and I am not sure another realtor could have delivered this deal-done outcome. Thank you so much, Sylvia. Highly appreciated and highly recommend as a seller's agent."

"We met Sylvia at an open house we strolled into.She was warm, relaxed and welcoming. The week following, she followed up with a personal email, sharing her contact information and inviting us to reach out for any real estate needs we had. Thus started our 10 month broker-client relationship.
We chatted, she learned our initial dreams and set our filters accordingly. We were out of state and searching as San Francisco was shutting down from the covid pandemic. Yet, Sylvia was our eyes and ears. She would vet properties for us, learn from our likes and dislikes, and nudge us to open up our parameters a bit. Sylvia was very patient and maximized our visits to the Bay by opening up new neighborhoods to us. In the end, we fell in love with a dramatically different home than we set out to buy and are thrilled.
From start to finish, Sylvia was with us. She was always incredibly generous with her time and was very available in person as well as by text and phone. She helped us navigate our slightly tricky transaction with professionalism and experience and always with positivity and warmth. I knew she was there for us. Even post sale, she was checking in, helping with resources and attention to make our move-in seamless. I cannot recommend Sylvia enough."

"We met Sylvia at an open house. We instantly felt a connection with her as we found her warm and engaging. Sylvia listened intently to our needs and allowed us to take our time. She always had her pulse on what was going on in the market and encouraged us to think outside the box by exploring different neighborhoods in San Francisco. What we really appreciated was that Sylvia was always completely transparent and guiding us in the right direction. Ultimately, she helped us find our first property where we are very happy. We will definitely be using Sylvia as our agent in the future."
