I shopped around for a realtor for some time. My mortgage broker encouraged me to contact Rosie, and I am so glad that I did. After interviewing 4 and being contacted by 6-7, she stood out as someone who was extremely knowledgeable of the various areas I was considering. Although I had been watching the market in Oakland for the past 6 years, when I needed a wise and insightful realtor, Rosie exceeded my expectations. The listing agent and seller that we dealt with were far from cooperative. However, Rosie made up the difference, and I was confident whether the deal went through or not that she would leave no stone unturned. From the very beginning she was honest and direct, and I felt that complimented my shortcomings. Although there was no way that I would imagine owning a second property without a great income, we made it possible. I will definitely refer family and friends to her. Moreover, if I ever sell or find myself able to buy another property she will be the only one I will call.
