What do you love the most about your neighborhood?
Location! Location! Location! Great people and great community. We wanted move from San Francisco to a more family orientated community. Burlingame has met all of our hopes and expectations.
Love the community and the wonderful neighbors. Can’t complain about the weather, good food, easy access (walking distance) to various shops and restaurants on Burlingame Avenue either.
What was your journey like buying a home?
It was somewhat stressful going into an offer battle; however Raziel took the time to understand our needs and really showed us the way to ease any concerns. Highly recommended Raziel and his team! They not only supported us through the home buying process, but they went the extra mile after we closed. The day we moved in, we found an assortment of goodies to welcome us to our new home, and the special touch only continues.
We understood how important it was having the right person on our team. Raziel was that person and made the process very streamlined and focused. From our first meeting until we closed on our home Raziel was always available and an invaluable advocate.
My experience working with Raziel was________________?
He is genuine, knowledgeable and simply a good person. Raziel doesn’t make buying a home feel like just another transaction, but rather an experience to embrace and enjoy.
Raziel was very a clear communicator and really took the time to know our family and to focus on our objectives around finding and executing on the right property. As a member of the community himself I think he enjoys having his clients become a part of that very special Burlingame community. We are extremely grateful for becoming active members of the community and for the home that Raziel helped us obtain.
