Cara Hanelin

Cara Hanelin has worked in higher education for nearly 20 years, supporting and training students and alumni volunteers at several institutions but primarily at Stanford University. She has mentored and encouraged the leadership growth of some of Stanford’s top graduates. She enjoys infusing others with energy and enthusiasm and making work fun. She brings that energy and enthusiasm to real estate.  She has also bought and sold her own homes in the Bay Area so deeply understands the personal connection to the home buying and selling process in this fast-paced market. 

Trish Eby retired from decades of work for the Federal government. For the last twenty plus years she worked as a Client Representative (problem solver) for the importing community in the US and around the world, and her skill set includes the ability to listen, to analyze a situation to identify the problem, to  find the solution and to bring the client on board to take action and move forward.

Cara and Trish take pride in being ethical, responsive, empathetic and doggedly committed to achieving the best possible outcome for their clients. Their more than 50 5-star Zillow client testimonials consistently mention their strong communication skills, their professionalism and their wise counsel.

Why You Should Sell Your Home With Us

Simplifying the home selling process.

With our experience, expertise and commitment to excellence, we make every step of the process worry-free for you, from the initial meeting at which we help you determine if anything needs to be done to get your house ready for the market, to the closing of escrow when the proceeds of the sale are wired to your bank account and you can celebrate.

We have a breadth of experience in selling properties from small condos to multi-million-dollar luxury homes. Our track record is one of selling homes quickly (sometimes before they hit the market) and for top dollar, often establishing a new record selling price for the area.

Best of all, we save you THOUSANDS of dollars, by providing 

  1. FREE staging 

  2. FREE inspections 

  3. FREE seller’s home warranty

which covers many repairs that might need to be made before you sell your home. We have sold homes for out of area sellers, some of whom we never met, and we can find excellent agents for you anywhere if your plan is to move out of the Bay Area. Our clients consistently remark on our professionalism and accessibility. We truly are here for you!

Why You Should Let Us Help Find your New or Next Home

Simplifying the home buying process for you.

We challenge anyone to prove that they work harder than we do to find a home for their buyers! From the minute that you contact us and tell us what you want, the search begins. We not only set you up with a free and user-friendly search, but we do our own search daily, looking for properties that are new to the market, coming soon, or off-market.

We can take you to see homes outside of busy open-house hours, request disclosures, and prepare analyses of comparable sales so you can be prepared to make a competitive offer. We know the importance of taking action quickly and strategically. Even in this highly competitive market, the vast majority of our buyers get the home they want with two or fewer offers.

If you are new to the home buying experience or are just new to the unique Bay Area real estate market, we can answer your questions and walk you through the process.  We even have a four-part YouTube series on homebuying. We can also recommend lenders if you do not have one of your own.

Best of all, we save you money by offering a CREDIT toward your closing costs (amount dependent on selling price of home).

Please read our testimonials: we don’t give up until we find what you are looking for!
