How I Help Buyers and Sellers
Does this sound like you?

- The thought of going through the home buying process causes you stress

If you want to buy a home in the Bay Area, I can help narrow your search and set you up to receive listings that meet your criteria. I will also keep you in mind during our company meetings when we hear about off market opportunities from the nearly 100 other agents in The Grubb Company. I will help you through the pre-approval process and once you find a home you are interested in making an offer on, I will analyze all the recently sold homes comparable to the one you want to make an offer on so we can strategize on making a competitive and successful offer. I will then negotiate your contract and once we are in contract I will be there to meet the appraiser, inspectors and provide our in house transaction coordinator, title company and lender with everything they need to close on time.
I'm here to help you navigate the process of buying a home.
You're in the right place.
I will help you understand the current real estate market and how your home will do if you were to list it. I always do a comprehensive market analysis and look at all comparable recent sales in your neighborhood, comparing date of sale, list price versus sales price and the price per square foot. This is so we can figure out the value of your home and the best list price to get you a quick and profitable sale. I coordinate everything we need to do to make your home look its best, from stagers, painters, landscapers and photographers to home inspectors. I manage it all and create an attractive marketing campaign. I'll advertise your home in the local papers, send out postcards, post on social media, the MLS and other sites like Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.com. When you receive offers I will help you determine which offer is the strongest that will have a successful and timely close. Once we are in contract I will communicate directly with the buyer’s agent, the title company, transaction coordinator and lender to make sure everything goes smoothly.

"Lisa is fantastic! My wife and I were looking for a new home and had some challenging requests (price, neighborhood, size, etc.) which Lisa took in stride. Buying a home in the Bay Area can be stressful but throughout our entire process Lisa kept a fun, upbeat and optimistic attitude and was a pleasure to work with. We had lots of questions during the process which Lisa was quick to answer for us, and if she didn't know right away she would take the time to find out for us. We were given fantastic service and the end result was a home that we could not be more thrilled with purchasing! We will definitely be soliciting Lisa's help if the need should ever come up for us again."
