    K. Kiisk (San Mateo Seller)

    Trish and Cara are a great team! They helped us sell our mom’s condo for the highest price ever in the complex. Cara is great at digital and social marketing to drive interest and Trish is really knowledgeable about the market and knows exactly what needs to get done to get top dollar and, possibly more importantly, what you can save your money on because it won’t pay back…and they have excellent contractor and moving resources they can refer you to. Everything with them was very turn key, which is impressive because selling is stressful. They are both willing to do whatever it takes for their clients, even if that means helping manually pack your kitchen with you. I highly recommend Trish and Cara!

    Trish and Cara were great! My partner and I were in a unique situation… looking to purchase our first home in the bay area while both of us were remote in Seattle, and all of this during coronavirus. Trish guided us through the process and was on top of all new listings that fit within what we were looking for. Highly recommended!

    PF San Francisco Buyer

    I couldn’t speak more highly of Trish and Cara! From the start, they were so incredibly patient while I searched for the perfect place. I never felt rushed and they were supportive the entire step of the way — quickly identifying the neighborhoods and styles I was most interested in, and then continuously sending the latest options (many before they even hit the market).

    When we did actually find a place to make an offer, they helped me think through all the pros and cons before submitting. They wanted me to understand everything and feel great about it.

    The negotiation process with the selling agents was also where Trish and Cara shined. There were multiple times I didn’t think we’d have a chance to win the offer, but they so delicately balanced persistence and poise with the selling agents that we were able to make the most competitive offer to win!

    But it didn’t stop there. They were so amazing helping me navigate the entire closing process — answering my zillions of questions (nearly instantaneously) and consistently supporting me along the way.

    I would recommend Trish and Cara to anyone interested in buying a home — because they’ll make it happen and make the entire experience so much more enjoyable than it otherwise could be!
