My Experience

Kristin Calcagno
"I first began my condo search about a year and a half ago. I knew I loved living in San Francisco and planned to
stay here long-term, but had grown tired of paying high rent prices. I knew I wanted to make an investment and
buy a home of my own. Being a single, 29-year-old woman, I was initially hesitant to start the condo search -
Could I really become a home owner in one of the most expensive cities in the country? Would the search be too
ovewhelming or competitive? Could I find a place I loved in an area and price range I wanted?

I had previously been working with another realtor and having no luck finding properties that met my preferences.
I also felt that I was not receiving the proper guidance and attention from my realtor, which was very troubling lo
me considering that I was a first time buyer and had no idea what I was doing.

After the New Year I quickly realized that I needed to change realtors if I wanted to be successful in finding a
home. Marsha was referred to me by a friend that had purchased other properties from her in SF and so
immediately contacted her. From our very first conversation I could tell Marsha's great attention to detail as she
asked me many specific questions about what I wanted in a home and what districts appealed to me.

We then arranged to meet in person for the first time at her office. Marsha was so well-prepared for my visit and
immediately put my property search stresses at ease. She had already compiled a packet of upcoming open
house information, new listings end recently sold properiies within my desired districts so that I could see where
the current market stood. I was so impressed how diligent Marsha was in preparing this packet for me and taking
the time to explain each property's pros and cons to me. Most of all, I was relieved tc see that Marsha had really
listened to ME and was detemined to help me find a condo that I wanted.

Immediately following our initial meeting, Marsha began sending me new listings, accompanying me to open
houses and frequentiy calling just to check-in, which gave me assurance that I was in very capable and dedicated
hands to help me with my search. In just a few short months, I am happy to say that I am a new condo owner in
beautiful Pacific Heights!

Marsha became a trusted partner to me and I always felt like a "priority client." Marsha's dedication, guidance
and professionaiism were top-notch and I am grateful she was an integral part of my first-time home-buying experience. I look forward to working with her again in the future and will recommend Marsha to any of my friends starting the house hunt.
