My wife and I used Raziel both for buying our new home and selling our old one, and couldn't be happier with the results. First we bought a fantastic house in a Burlingame neighborhood with very little inventory, and paid a price we were actually happy with--in part because of his excellent advice. Next we sold our old house (also in Burlingame) for a price at the upper end of the range we were hoping for.
"We chose Raziel after interviewing several realtors because of his integrity and straight-forward approach, and mostly because he’s not just a Realtor selling a house; he builds relationships with his clients. He wanted to know with whom he was working on a personal level. I also felt Raziel respected me and heard what I had to say. He listens when people talk—doesn’t interrupt and makes his clients feel their concerns are important, no matter how little the question."
What surprised me most about this last home buying experience was Raziel. I wasn't expecting to find such an intuitive, caring, responsive, patient and professional agent. This man knows what he's doing and he represented my interests much better than I could have done myself. I will always be grateful. My experience working with Raziel was outstanding. Buying or selling a home is a huge decision to make and Raziel made it as comfortable as humanly possible. Both transactions went smoothly and it came down to his personality, his creativity and his experience.
Working with Raziel was easy, pleasant, and simply harmonious.We
only had four or five weeks to get out of our house and into a new
home, so it was really, really stressful for us. Raziel took the stress out of this for us. He was our advocate from start to finish and was consistently available to support us with his expertise in buying and selling our homes.
Raziel really takes the time to understand your needs and is willing to think outside the box if need be. When we first met with him in his office for our initial interview, he learned that we were looking for a home that would also interest my Mother-In-Law as she would be staying with us quite a bit to help look after our daughter and would likely live in the home once the time comes for us to buy our next home. Knowing this, Raziel went through the trouble of translating his client-facing real estate documents into Chinese so she could be more involved. Wow.
