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.
Where did you grow up?

3) Finding a career that allows me to do what I love… building relationships and mentoring young adults.
What’s your favorite hidden gem?
Spending time in a Bungalow at Turtle Bay on the North Shore of Hawaii!!!
Hole in the wall sushi restaurant in Santa Clara. Mom introduced me so now that’s our spot.
What’s been your biggest challenge?
Overcoming the loss of my father at an early age. And in the present moment I am looking to establish a shift in work/life balance to better support my family and personal health.
Juggling the stress of career and living in the bay area to be able to afford these beautiful houses.

Coming up with a new bucket list.

Exceptional. He was thorough, detailed and got it DONE!
Heather and Ekine Akuiyibo
Raziel and his team helped us sell our home and it was a fantastic experience. We selected Raziel because we were impressed with his rave reviews from past Burlingame customers. Raziel and his team were excellent communicators. We were thoroughly informed during the entire process -- from preparing for the sale, feedback from showings, and what to expect during the closing period. We are grateful that our home-selling experience was extremely positive!
Heather and Steve Roberts
Raziel didn’t focus on selling his services. Instead, he spent time understanding what we were looking for and took a genuine interest in helping us find the right home.
Sruthi and Rakesh
Raziel gave us great insights into homes that we looked at together.
Madhu Murali and Deepti Anand
I didn’t realize a realtor would actually help you prepare your house for sale to the extent that Raziel and his team did. It was incredible to get the kind of support and advice that the team gave us.
Eileen and Dan Conway
The biggest factor for us to work with Raziel is knowing that he would provide as much info and support as possible, to not only guide us in a direction such that the choices we make are well-informed, but also bringing the right team together to execute on them.
