Soraya’s Client Comments
I've bought and sold several properties over the past few years and Soraya is by far the most enjoyable and rewarding to work with. She will earn your respect and she will make the buying and/or selling process easy. She is knowledgeable, sophisticated, communicative and she is hard working. We consider Soraya a friend after our experience. Stuart M.
Soraya was amazing in both her knowledge of the market and her ability to get us through all of the details that take place before a sale. I had no idea how much work it takes to get a house to market, and she guided us through the process with professionalism and a patience of gold. There were so many details to take care of, from whole house painting to fixing all those little things we ignored for so many years. Her suggestions of what at a minimum we needed to upgrade were spot on, and her ability to provide a team of people to get these upgrades and improvements done was extremely helpful. Her staging team (Barbara Winters) was incredibly talented and easy to work with. Soraya is a gem that I would recommend to anyone thinking of selling their home in our area. It is hard to pack up 20 years of memories and to go through the process of cleaning, fixing and decluttering, and it is critical to have an agent who understands this and is compassionate yet able to move things forward and help you stay on schedule for the best market timing. Soraya is this agent. Matt & Nancy Taylor
Soraya is everything you’d want in a realtor and more. She helped my family and me secure our dream home. She’s prompt, attentive, caring, listens to you, and goes above and beyond to find you that perfect house. She’s aggressive on your behalf and closely looks at every detail, making sure there are no hidden surprises. She has quickly become a friend, with her jovial personality and warm disposition. Even after the house is yours, she makes herself readily available with any resource you may need. HIGHLY recommend her! Dr. Sean & Briana Martin
We were incredibly lucky to find Soraya. When we met Soraya, my husband and I had been house hunting in San Francisco and we thought we had a pretty good idea of what we were looking for when we decided to move our search to the East Bay. Soraya thoroughly educated us on the LaMorinda area and spent a significant amount of time and energy helping us find our home. We had had negative experiences with past realtors, so we initially paid close attention to her suggestions and predictions. To our pleasant surprise, she was always spot on with her estimates and advice, and she earned our trust/respect. After spending the majority of our weekends with her for nearly a year, making multiple offers, and successfully purchasing our first home, we have witnessed Soraya’s talent firsthand. She has a keen eye for value, knows the market well, is a skilled negotiator, and has great relationships with other realtors, mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, and inspectors. She walked us through the entire home buying process: listening, advising, consoling, and helping us to navigate an extremely competitive market. It is also notable that our budget was in the lower range for the area and she still spent an enormous amount of time ensuring that we never missed a house with potential. We ended up with our perfect home and it was nothing like the home that we initially thought we wanted, which speaks to her true genius! After working with Soraya, we now know what it is like to be in the hands of a truly excellent realtor. I must also add that Soraya is a lovely person and her clients often become her good friends. This is the person you want by your side when you are buying a home. Sarah & Andrew Gray
Soraya was recommended to us from a friend of a friend after we had been house hunting in the East Bay for almost a year. We had a very frustrating experience with a previous realtor, and were nervous to build a new relationship with another. That all changed from the first conversation we had with Soraya. She was kind and listened to all of our wants, needs, and concerns, and got down to business with us right away. She was incredibly patient with us, (and as first time buyers we had a lot of questions), and she was always comprehensive in her answers. We were able to find our dream home with Soraya within three months of beginning our search. Throughout the negotiation process she was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and she got us a price that we were happy with. All in all, we absolutely loved working with Soraya, and she continues to hold our hands and answer any questions we have as we embark on this new chapter of our lives. We can't recommend her enough!
