After having our home on the market for one year, we were fatigued and had already gone through two reputable realtors---when we chose Monika to help us "close the deal" and sell our +$1.5m home. Professional, smart, timely, excellent listener, superb follow-through, generously covered a few expenses that went above and beyond our expectations, ethical and HONEST---Monika delivered and we are now celebrating the sale of our family home. In addition, we found Monika to be classy, aware of family needs, and grateful for her crew of helpers and team professionals."

Monika,

Thank you for selling our house! I just knew you were the one to handle this very important, (historic even) task. You handled everything so perfectly. Thank you again,

Warmly, Alissa

My husband and I met Monika through a work colleague when we began our home search. Our list was lengthy and specific and Monika found it for us, even though it was a listing that was no longer active.   I remember the market was tight, not much inventory at all, and this is where having Monika on our side was tremendous.  

 

She researched old listings that did not sell a few years back, then she started reaching out to those realtors whose home fit our wish list.  We then found out that one realtor and her clients were willing to talk to us.  Monika cleverly had us write a family bio to give to the potential sellers.  It worked, they were empty nesters and Monika and our bio were enough convincing that the time to sell (to our family) had come.

 

Monika is patient, thorough, professional, and always available for advice regarding contractors or other questions we may have even years after our home purchase.  We have sent a few other families to Monika and they are just as happy as we are.  

 

We are so thankful we met Monika, she is really in it to win for her clients. We can’t say thank you enough to Monika for finding our home.

We were Amazed at the Service

Over the course of the last decade we've trusted Monika Davidson to sell our properties in Los Altos and Santa Cruz, as well as locate and purchase two houses including out current residence -- which is absolutely perfect! Monika knows every inch of the area like no other. When searching for the right home, she spent the time to understand our needs and character as a family and guided us to look in just the right neighborhoods. At transaction time, Monika's professionalism as a negotiator, a coach, and a family psychologist (ha!) gave us peace during one of life's most stressful purchases. 
When it came time to sell, Monika showed her unique value with an entirely different set of skills. Not only did she recommend critical pre-sale improvements, but she also brought in an experienced team of sub-contractors and managed the entire project. Our property sold in 10 days at ~$250k over asking. Thanks to Monika for all the diligence and patience that ultimately led us to "home".      - Keith & Lisa Koenig.

Monika greeted us with a small packet of information including a blank sales contract, a closing sheet, the likely comps to our house and a sample advertising flyer.  She stated she would attend all inspections.  Her attitude throughout was professional at the same time very caring and thoughtful.  She never boasted but instead showed her strong people and negotiating skills.  We would employ her services again in a heartbeat.
