We met Nancy when looking for a house to buy in San Mateo in 2012 and thanks to her we found our lovely house. She is friendly, warm, very professional and thorough. Nancy was very knowledgeable about the market and was instrumental in our search for our home. She continues to follow up with us and inform us of the status of the real state market in our neighborhood. I would highly recommend working with her.

Nancy is a fantastic real estate agent, and a special person. She showed me around Burlingame neighborhoods and found me the perfect new home in just a matter of days two years ago. But then she has been super-helpful in many other ways: helping me find a house-cleaner, an after-school nanny for my tween, curtains for my condo - all with such a cheerful and friendly attitude, it was unbelievable! Thank you Nancy! I whole-heartedly recommend her to you if you are looking for a new home in the community. She knows the market, the comps, the other agents, all the neighborhoods. Well-connected, smart, savvy and fiesty/friendly - a great person to have on your side in this fiercely competitive market.

Nancy is a phenomenal realtor. She helped my husband and I find a house 4 years ago in San Mateo. She made herself available for all open houses and knew the in's and out's of the market. We ended up buying a nice house and we are very happy. My husband and I needed to move out of state for work and she helped us rent out our property and screened potential tenants. Also, she worked with my mother on selling my uncles house after he passed away. My mom was very content with her services. My husband and I plan on moving back to the bay area next year and we plan on using her services again for purchasing a house.
