What do you love the most about your neighborhood?
The neighbors! When we moved to Burlingame, we didn’t know a single person and our neighbors welcomed us with open arms. The families on our street have become true friends and have made this town feel like home.
Downtown Burlingame Ave. and Washington Park. Love grabbing breakfast or coffee on weekend mornings and taking our boys to the park.
What was your journey like buying a home, and what surprised you the most?
It was stressful searching for a home in Burlingame while living in NYC. Our offer was accepted the night before our wedding. Single largest purchase I had ever made and I needed to wire the escrow amount before the ceremony! The biggest surprise was how quickly homes in Burlingame sell. It was frustrating as a long-distance buyer but great as a seller.
We were searching for a home in Burlingame while living in New York and it was surprising to learn there were little “sub-communities” within Burlingame. There is so much character to this town and we quickly learned to search for a house in the areas that felt most like “us”.
What was your experience like selling your home?
It was a very smooth process. Raziel and his team made all of the prep work seamless and did a great job quickly finding a buyer at our asking price.
Selling our house was emotional as so many of our major life milestones happened in our first home. But, it was comforting to have a team supporting us so we felt less overwhelmed and could think about selling our house as the beginning of our next wonderful chapter.
What was your experience working with Raziel?
Raziel has a great team and we always felt assured the right person was focused on tackling each part of the process and things progressed quickly because of it! Raziel knows the Burlingame market intimately and he did a wonderful job negotiating to get us a great outcome in a challenging market environment.
Raziel and his team provided tons of personal attention throughout the process and supported us at every step. Raziel understood our unique goals and worked hard to outperform our expectations on a relatively short timeline.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Being a mom to our two boys.
What was your childhood ambition?
I wanted to be a wildlife photographer for National Geographic.
I grew up in rural Pennsylvania, so my dream was always to live in a major city like San Francisco.
What’s your favorite hidden gem?
Not hidden, but Bacchaus for pastries.
What’s been your biggest challenge?
Juggling a demanding career and being a great Husband / Father / Son / Brother.
What was your first job?
Picking strawberries - fun fact: you get paid by the quart, so pick quickly!
Painting and maintenance work at commercial office buildings.
What’s your greatest Inspiration?
I don’t have any single greatest source of inspiration. In my job I’ve been fortunate to spend a lot of time with some amazing business leaders that have inspired me to work harder at supporting my family and pursuing my career.
What’s your favorite movie?
Legends of the Falls.
Hard to pick a favorite but can pretty much always watch Goodfellas when it’s on TV.
What’s on the top of your bucket list items?
Spend a summer in Montana with our boys.
Family safari in Africa. We went on safari in Kenya for our honeymoon and I’m excited to share the experience with my two sons once they are a little older.
What organizations do you love?
Boys and Girls Club (I used to go to my local club growing up).
Girls on the Run, Back on My Feet.

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!

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
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.
