Burlingame is one of the few areas that has maintained its gracious charm and timeless elegance over the decades. A favorite among families, Burlingame’s two main shopping areas, Burlingame Avenue and Broadway, attract a wide variety of shoppers discovering its boutiques, restaurants, dessert places, and clothing stores. Home to fresh farmer’s markets every Sunday morning in the summer and fall, jazz concerts in Washington Park, and a yearly Art in the Park fair, Burlingame is a wonderful place to start a family or retire later in life, and is well equipped for both!

All addresses in Burlingame go to Burlingame High School (In 2003, the district lines were redrawn to incorporate this change).

Burlingame shares a common history with neighbors San Mateo, Millbrae and Hillsborough, but only up to a point. Like the surrounding communities, Burlingame was once the site of native Costanoan villages and then part of a Mexican land grant (Rancho Buri Buri to the north and Rancho San Mateo to the south). Burlingame’s history diverges from that of nearby Peninsula cities in the late 1800s, when Francis Newlands, son-in-law of landowner and Nevada Senator William Sharon, came up with a plan to turn this stretch of real estate into a playground for San Francisco’s wealthiest residents.

With Burlingame being such a competitive market, it was important to work with someone that really knew the town well. Growing up in Burlingame himself, you can tell how much he loves the town and what it has to offer. We particularly liked Raziel’s data driven approach and his approachable style. He made the process as easy as possible.
Raziel and his team are some of the nicest most honest people we have met. I can't think of anyone more knowledgeable, patient, thoughtful and flexible to work with. Overall, they exceeded all our expectations. Working with Raziel was one of the best decisions we ever made.
Once we began working with Raziel to find a property in Burlingame, the process was seamless and Raziel represented us incredibly well. Raziel’s insightfulness, astute contract and negotiation skills, and ability to move quickly allowed us to confidently navigate the bidding process with great success.
Raziel was great about breaking down the neighborhoods so we could focus on aspects that appealed to us and better understand the local market. When I did bid, I felt like we had a pretty good understanding of what to expect in terms of process and market price.
Raziel and the team communicated with us every step of the way, and we felt that selling our house with the best possible outcome was their highest priority. The marketing and administrative details were handled efficiently and effectively by Angilee and Vanessa, respectively, and Emily is an absolute project management wizard at managing the inspections and trades who helped get our house ready for sale.
We were a bit overwhelmed by what might lay ahead of us and we had high hopes for Raziel and how he might be able to help us achieve our goals and guide us through what for us felt a bit daunting and very unfamiliar territory. Raziel came to our house for an initial consultation, fully prepared to listen, get to know our objectives, explain how he could help us achieve them and answer all of our many questions.
