What do you love the most about your neighborhood?
I love that we can walk to Roosevelt and to our friends’ houses all over the neighborhood. I also love how friendly everyone is, and how every street is tree-lined; it gives it a great feel year round.
The community and walkability to the kid’s school.
What was your journey like buying a home, and what surprised you the most?
Surprising. We stumbled upon the perfect home on a rainy December day, actually my birthday!
We had a bit of a unique process in that we were not searching for months or years. Once we started looking we happened to come across one that felt right in our price range, and the best part was being right next door to Roosevelt where both our kids will go.
What was your experience like selling your home?
Selling our home was bittersweet; it was the first home we bought in Burlingame and was where our kids had many firsts. But we were fortunate that we had strong demand so the process was relatively quick. We did also realize how much of a benefit it was to stage the home!
Fantastic, because of Raziel and his team. They made it a seamless process and took care of every step.
What was your experience working with Raziel?
He’s the best in the business, mostly because he and his team were very hands on throughout the process, and proactively managed the process every step of the way.
Working with Raziel was one of the best decisions we have made. His honestly, knowledge, professionalism, negotiation skills and positive attitude made it a joy to work with him.
