  • 6/14/17 - 5 magnificent offers received, each well over asking, each with all contingencies waived, each had signed off on all documents received, each included proof of funds, and lenders' pre-approval letters where applicable. Each offer flawlessly prepared and presented by the buyers' agents.

What made this property so highly desired? The location in the heart of Silicon Valley--a 7 minute bicycle ride to Google headquarters--a property only 1 year old with plenty of upgrades and beautifully maintained, proper pricing, presentation and marketing.

There's no question that the market is hot in the Silicon Valley, just read my recent post "Sold, Mt. View California continues its hot streak."  

If you are ready to sell your Mountain View residence, give me a call. While the average sales price to list price ratio is great, it's possible to achieve even greater results. Let's talk.

Yes, Joan Cox and Debe Maxwell, CRS - sellers are happy, and so is the victorious buyer. Four other sets of buyers are still out there, looking for their home. I've sent mailers in the neighborhood to see who else might be ready to sell.

Hello Inna Ivchenko - thanks! The new owners are ecstatic. Now, if I only had 4 more of these listings.......

Hi George Souto - the speed of this, from start to finish, was amazing. Soon my sellers will begin their search for a replacement home. We'll see how that goes for them.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Mateo County and San Francisco (Today | Sotheby's International Realty) 5 months ago

Well done, Lottie:) I'm sure you'll sell those 4 in no time and get another 4 or more new ones meanwhile:) 

Posted by Inna Ivchenko, Realtor® • Green • GRI • HAFA • PSC Los Angeles CA (Barcode Properties) 5 months ago

Inna Ivchenko - I'm doing my best to get in front of owners of this type of condo/townhouse to see if any might wish to sell.
