I sold this home in Santa Clara for $711,000 to a very nice young couple buying their first home. They initially wanted to get an FHA loan and put as little of a down payment as possible, but also had the ability to go with a conventional loan as well. In my opinion, if you do have the down payme...
I sold this home in San Jose to very nice couple owned a home and wanted to buy a larger home in a better school district. So, this transaction was partly a balancing act to ensure that they sold their home and then had a home to move into and make it a smooth transition for them. And, the trans...
This home was just an adorable home in such a unique and cool location of downtown San Jose. It is in a cul de sac and backs to a creek, very peaceful! You would never know you were in downtown San Jose sitting in this home or in the back yard. This listing was very interesting in that we had so...
These buyers faced a long journey to a very happy ending! I started working with this very nice couple almost a year ago in search for their first home. At the very beginning of the search, that market was still a bit slow, but very soon after the market really started to pick up just as they we...

This is the 5th time I have worked with this buyer. About 1995 she bought her first condo with me, sold that condo, bought a house, sold the house and moved to Boston, came back to the Bay Area, and just bought this home.  She was determined to buy a single family home and not a townhome or condo...
