“Her enthusiasm was contagious, and she made us realize that this process didn’t have to be stressful.”
We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed working with Margot. She was absolutely outstanding. We have already owned two condos, and therefore have worked with other buyer brokers in the past. Never again! Margot made us feel so comfortable, and was extremely professional. It is clear how much she loves her job, and we found ourselves looking forward to our condo-hunting trips. Her enthusiasm was contagious, and she made us realize that this process didn’t have to be stressful. Margot showed us many places, yet she never made us feel pressured to make an offer. We know that she was looking out for our best interests, and really wanted us to be happy with our decision. Moreover, we always appreciated her thoughts and observations about the condos. Since we knew that Margot was on our side, we felt that she would always give us an honest answer. Also, she actually understood what we liked. Therefore, every time she showed us a condo (or suggested that we see one that wasn’t so nice in the pictures); it ended up being a worthwhile trip. Last but not least, it was incredibly easy to get in touch with Margot. She kept us informed every step of the way, and was always available via phone or e-mail. We don’t know how she does it. I’m sure she’s extremely busy, but she made us feel like we were her most important clients.
“We used her again to buy our second home and then a third time when we sold it”
We met Michelle when we were having some … trouble, let’s say, selling a very unique home. She took over for two other Realtors, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Some of this, of course, is luck, but we had three offers roll in pretty quickly. What isn’t luck is how Michelle kept them all in the game, despite some fairly crazy requests from the potential buyers. We used her again to buy our second home and then a third time when we sold it. She is always very punctual, professional, clear in her communication and doesn’t give you that feeling like she is shining you on if she tells you something or makes a recommendation. We moved out of the state, but would work with her again in a heartbeat!
“She always wants the best for her clients”
Let’s be honest, SF is a sellers market. The beau and I have met many a real estate agent, the majority of which don’t even bat an eye / get out of their chair as they happily look over the bowl of agents cards they’ve already received during their open house.
This is what sets Shirley apart. We met her when she was showing a unit in the building we’ve been renting (which she sold for 30% over asking!) and were immediately drawn to her powerhouse combo of warmth and competitive nature. It was instantly clear to us that she always wants the best for her clients. PS. She’s also completely bilingual (Chinese + English) so there’s that, too 😉
“For our next purchase the easiest decision we will make will be to call Evan”
Evan is a saint! Anyone who is willing to deal with us a newbies is deserving of a medal and perhaps a bottle of wine! The good news is newbies we are no longer. Evan was so helpful, answering calls and emails at all hours, he worked diligently to keep the transaction moving, even when faced with responsibilities that weren’t on the buyers side. You can tell that he cares deeply about his clients and ultimately he got us in at steal! When it’s time for our next purchase the easiest decision we will make will be to call Evan.
“He showed us our dream property in our dream location”
I could not speak more highly of Michael Baldasarra. He is one of the most responsive agents with whom we have had the pleasure of working. He is thoughtful, resourceful, kind, and a true professional. He cares, and it shows. Michael was our rental agent many, many years ago. We stayed in touch all this time, and when we were ready to buy, Michael came through. As avid real estate searchers, we didn’t think that Michael could show us anything we didn’t already know about, but he DID. Remembering what w had told him years ago, he showed us our dream property in our dream location. He is awesome, and you will be so glad you worked with him.
“I would highly recommend Michelle and her company”
I recently had the pleasure of working with Michelle Balog and William Crum at Bay Real Estate Group. They guided us (multiple co-owners from multiple states) through the selling of our family home in the midst of COVID restrictions. Michelle was extremely knowledgeable about the housing market and offered many useful suggestions to prepare the house for selling. When we were reticent about some of the suggestions, she prioritized their importance which helped us make our decisions. William was always on top of getting estimates, scheduling inspections and workers, and being at the house whenever necessary. I would highly recommend Michelle and her company.
