Ester is a miracle worker! We found her through a co-worker that had already bought (twice) and sold with her. Upon meeting her, it was abundantly clear we would be in excellent hands.
The first miracle she brought us was finding an month-to-month in-law unit we could move in *with our dog* while we continued to look for a home. This was an amazing help to us, as we were commuting to San Mateo from the East Bay. I had tried all summer to find a place, and it took Ester one week using her connections.
Our home search lasted 4 months. Throughout this time, Ester would go out of her way to show us homes. We were in constant dialogue about our impressions, and the pros and cons of about nearly every home in our price range. She would even go out of her way to check in on us and see how we were doing emotionally in the process.
Throughout the entire process we were always impressed by her knowledge, her willingness to go out of her way, and her connections to other realtors. When it finally came time to write an offer, she knew exactly how to make a competitive offer and we won! To get the home on our first offer was miracle number 2.
If you want someone that is going to fight to get you into this market, you are in perfect hands! She handles her business with equal parts tenacity and compassion. She would not talk you into something you can’t afford, and learns exactly what will make *you* happy in your home. We almost can’t wait to move, so that we can work with her again. But we love our home so much and it’s all thanks to Ester. 🙂
