Denise Cronan sold our house for us in San Mateo and was amazing right from the beginning all the way through the process. Her boundless energy, knowledge of the market, creative approach and just always going above and beyond were all at work for us and made for a quick and successful sale in a few days. Beyond that we feel we’ve made a friend and will continue being in touch with her. Thanks Denise!"

— David & Cathy Crossman

Denise Cronan and her team recently sold two condominiums in Burlingame for us. We were thoroughly impressed with the incredible job that was accomplished. Both units sold quickly and at the prices we wanted. The whole process could best be described as completely turnkey. Every aspect of the sale was efficiently managed. I would definitely engage Denise's services for any future real estate transactions in the local area. "

Working with Ian was a great experience! This was my first time buying a home, and Ian was very patient as I learned the ropes of the truly outrageous SF Bay Area market. Thanks to his quick communication on offer day, I was able to negotiate with the sellers and close a deal in just a few weeks of shopping."

We recently had the pleasure of working with Ian Newbury. As first-time buyers, Ian made our end to end buying experience seamless by being responsive, attentive and informative. From providing numerous options to facilitating during closing activities, Ian was a consummate professional and continuously strived to assure we were satisfied with our final decision on our new purchase. Thank you Ian for finding us the perfect house!"

We were about to give up selling our condo in Mountain View when our previous realtor wasn’t able to sell it. Ian came along and with his reassurance and competence, was able to find a buyer in less than 20 days!! On top of that, he was able to find us our dream home in less than a week! He’s amazing! I highly recommend!!"

Thank you for making this experience so painless. My expectations were completely fulfilled and then some."
