I bought my first home in the Nob Hill area in San Francisco with Wayne and Joseph and can’t be any happier or satisfied with the amount of detail and attention they’ve given to this real estate transaction, from start to finish. I have steadfast confidence in their knowledge, experience, and expertise.

I worked with Wayne in 2017 to buy my home in West Oakland. He was excellent, and I 100% recommend working with him again. This was my first experience purchasing a home, and I felt that Wayne was patient and supportive throughout the entire process. Wayne connected me to an excellent mortgage advisor, which helped the process move quickly. I also feel that Wayne truly understood my needs, and he helped me find a home that I love...

Wayne was an incredible realtor. He was patient and understanding as I "kicked tires", offered helpful input when it was requested but never preached. And, when I found the place I wanted, he was relentless in collaboration with the listing agent to get the house for a minimal price over asking. I got the first house I offered on - and that was very unusual in 2021! On top of all this, Wayne recommended a great mortgage broker, and continued to help with things like home warranty after the completion. I have recommended Wayne to several friends, and will continue to do so!
