Tell us about your experience with Saba Shoaeioskouei

    • Saba is nothing short of AMAZING! We found her by chance and how lucky we were to have her as our agent. We were looking to purchase a home in San Francisco (which is no easy task in this market) and we were really frustrated with the agents we had tried out. We felt like we were doing all the work, mindlessly on Redfin and Zillow looking for homes when all we wanted was an agent to step up and help us in this process. Saba was on point when it came to our needs, would look at properties ahead of time for us , and keep us in the know of any new properties about to hit the market. She is also amazing at assessing the value of homes, I couldn't believe how close she was to the final sale of some homes we were considering of putting in an offer. She was also fantastic when it came to the sale of the home. Our loan officer said it's rare to find an agent to be on top of the process as she did. You won't be disappointed with Saba...we will for sure use her if we ever need an agent !

    • Saba is a great real estate agent.We chose to work with her because of the professionalism and courtesy extended to us at one of her open houses. She was very quick to respond and took the time to understand exactly what type of house we were looking for. Later on she even took the time to give us a brief presentation about purchasing a home in the bay area.With Saba's help, we were able to find our home within two months! What really stands out about Saba is her communication and honesty. She always replies promptly and it is evident that she works very hard for you. We saw tons of homes with her and she was always willing to drive even if it was out of the way or at odd times of the day. She doesn't try to just sell you any home. She takes the time to show you as many homes as you need to so that you can find the right one!I highly recommend Saba as a real estate agent. Our experience with her has been nothing short of exceptional.

    • We were SO FORTUNATE to have randomly met Saba at an open house that was way out of budget but had one important finding for us... SABA!!!! As first-time homebuyers we entered a steep learning curve and we felt incredibly supported by Saba through the entire process. She started off with an in-depth presentation on home buying with a particular focus on the intricacies of how to successfully close in this tight San Francisco housing market. Next she introduced us to a loan officer through which we received the loan; Saba had previously worked with the loan officer and knew that she is responsive and FAST. Then Saba joined us to EVERY SINGLE open house, learning about our likes and dislikes, and saving us a lot of time by advising which open houses we could skip. Saba guided us through the emotional rollercoaster of submitting a pre-emptive offer for our dream home, only to receive a counter-offer, which we accepted. Within 25 days of signing the counter-offer we held the keys to our dream home in our hands. During those 25 days there was so much paperwork to read, forms to sign, and documents to submit, and Saba not only kept us on track, answering questions within hours (even late at night and on weekends) but she went beyond what anyone could have asked for from an agent. In particular we'd like to point out Saba's PATIENCE in answering our million questions, as well as her ability to EXPLAIN complex concepts, including the financing process and legal forms.We're sure there are many good and highly qualified brokers in San Francisco, but Saba really stands out for her SPEED and calm realism with which she guides you through the homebuying process. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Saba to any homebuyers. Saba, thank you so much!!!

    • If you are looking for an honest, organized, responsive, personable, and professional agent, then look no further! Saba is the one! Saba is truly knowledgeable and knows about the ins and outs of the SF market. Her neighborhood videos are very informative and helped me get a better sense of what different areas in SF have to offer. She is very passionate and enthusiastic about what she is doing, and makes sure all her clients are well taken care of. I would highly recommend working with Saba for those looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area

    • Saba is a dynamite real estate agent. She was very professional and was willing to do what it takes to find a nice place for me- She truly went above and beyond my expectations. When I first got started, I jumped into looking for houses without knowing enough about the market while trying to gather all the relevant information online. I was literally going from open house to open house, trying to wrap my head around the value of different properties. I was lucky enough to meet Saba on one of the open houses I visited. From the first moment, she was very open and shared a lot of super helpful information with me, without trying to sell anything to me. She helped me narrow down what I was looking for, and started sending me listings that hadn't even hit the market! She made life so much easier to me, knowing that she is working hard to find me a home that I love. Her use of technology was top notch and saved me a lot of time, from signing all the paperwork, to tracking the deadlines for closing and contingency removal. I am pretty confident that I wouldn't have gotten my place without Saba's help. Bottom line is if you are looking to buy or sell a house, call won't regret it!

      - Maneli S. San Francisco, CA
    • Saba recently helped me find my new home. She was the best realtor I've ever had and I highly recommend her. She was very knowledgeable about San Francisco neighborhoods and has many connections, which are invaluable in a competitive market. I felt she was a wonderful negotiator on my behalf, she was also able to help me get great loan through her connections with mortgage brokers. But most of all she was a true pleasure to work with and I will definitely work with her again for my next home.

    • I worked with Saba to purchase a condo last fall, and I can't recommend her highly enough. This was my third home buying experience, and working with Saba was definitely the best. She's incredibly organized, responsive and patient - she really took the time to understand my priorities and to explain every step of the process. I was still in San Diego while planning my initial househunting weekend, so I was largely dependent on Saba's knowledge and guidance to point me in the right direction. Thx to her comprehensive pre-work, I put in an offer on Day 4 of househunting and had an accepted offer by Day 5. I've referred her to friends and colleagues, and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

    • Saba recently helped me with the purchase of a condo in SF. She is super knowledgeable with the SF housing market. She went with me to all the open houses and she is extremely responsive with communication/text messages and phone calls. I worked with Saba for about 2 months before we found my condo. The best part is she always does her job with a huge smile on her face which can really calm you down during the stressful process of house hunting in SF. I highly recommend her. If you are in the market for a new condo in SF

    • I decided to purchase a condo in San Francisco and worked with Saba throughout the whole process.This is my second time purchasing a condo (once back in Boston) and it was an absolute pleasure working with Saba. She is very professional, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and caring. She understands the client's needs quickly and communicates transparently. She is also very responsive whether through email or text, which makes the home purchasing process much more reliable and less stressful.I am glad I found Saba and I will go back to her for any future home purchasing needs in SF.5 star service - as good as it gets really.

    • Saba helped us learn about buying a house over the last couple of years, and we finally closed two weeks ago. It's been a crazy ride, what a process! I went into this not entirely convinced of a realtor's value, and came out deeply thankful that we had Saba with us through the whole process.Saba continues to check in with us even after the sale, and has helped with various little details that we've discovered as we've gone along. You can't go wrong working with her, she's dedicated, very knowledgable, and trustworthy. Highly recommended.

      - Rich L. Half Moon Bay, CA
    • Saba really blew all of our expectations away. I couldn't imagine working with a better agent. Throughout the entire home buying process we came to rely on Saba as not just a broker but also a trusted advisor with tons of experience. Even though she's very busy you wouldn't know it from working with her as a client, because when she works with you she gives you 100% of her care and attention. Highly recommend working with Saba if you get the chance.

      - Mike L. San Francisco, CA
    • 6-star service! Prompt, efficient and knowledgable. Thank you for all your help, Saba!

      - Mei Ling S. Emeryville, CA
    • Working with Saba was a fantastic experience. My girlfriend Loryn and I came into this process as first-time home buyers with lots of questions. Saba provided us timely, informed answers for everything, and pointed us to lots of resources to learn more about the SF market.Saba was particularly helpful in finding off market housing, getting synced up with a great lender, and helping negotiate with our eventual sellers. I would recommend her to anyone looking for housing in the SF area.

      - Adrian A. San Francisco, CA
    • A lot of people say buying a house in San Francisco is one of the most nerve-racking experiences ever. Let me tell you: this was not the case with Saba. We were so lucky to have her represent us as our buyer's agent for our first home. She was able to find that perfect home for us in a very short period. We started off with a Real Estate 101 course with her, and she taught us ins and outs of the SF market. Throughout the process, we always felt that she had our best interest in heart, and that's why we believed in her from our first meeting. And of course, she delivered on her promise. Her knowledge of San Francisco Market and connections with other Zephyr agents were a HUGE value. When it came to writing an offer, she took the time to meet us in person, and address literally all our questions and concerns. She even explained the whole purchase contract to us line-by-line.Saba is a hard-working agent and a fierce negotiator. After presenting our offer to the sellers, she went back and forth with the listing agent and negotiated a deal for us that saved us several thousands of dollars. The great qualities that we love most about Saba are her patience in explaining the process as well as allowing us to be educated at our own pace. We never felt pressured into making any decisions and she always gave us guidance and the freedom to do what was best for us. She was very fast and responsive and always got back to us in less than an hour, regardless of when we contacted her. She is also incredible with number, and nailed every estimate that she made for sale prices, providing us with fantastic comp analysis. We give her five stars all around, and will use her next time, and next time, and next time!

    • I imagine that finding a great buyer's agent as a first time home buyer can be a tough, arduous experience. Luckily, Saba happened to be one of the first we met and we instantly knew that she was going to be able to find the first home of our dreams!We knew very little of the process of buying a home or what it all entailed and Saba took the time to describe -- in detail -- the entire process from start to end and what we should expect every step of the way. Within just a few days of initially meeting her, we found ourselves in back-to-back offer situations where the latter eventually became our home. She gave us honest feedback about our offers, how they would be perceived, and how we should delicately proceed in every instance. Being new to this process, we leaned on Saba at almost every hour of the day and she always made herself readily available from quick informational texts to long phone calls at all hours of the day and night. Every question and concern was addressed so quickly and with detailed reasons why.If you need someone dedicated to help you navigate the ups and downs of the SF housing market and diligently work hard for you every step of the way, Saba is definitely the agent you want to work with. We have no doubts that we'll use her for any future house we buy and would gladly recommend her to any friend or family member we know that is starting to look for their dream home.

    • I was lucky enough to have someone recommend Saba to me to help me find my first home, and it completely made my experience. Seeing other reviews on here, I have no idea how she does what she does. I truly felt like I was her only client. She responded to all my texts/emails/calls almost immediately. Knowing I was driving a couple hours to come look at places, she was incredibly flexible with her schedule. When we looked at places, she was completely present and took the time to really learn what I was looking for in a home. When I was nervous about the safety of a neighborhood, she took time to walk around with me and ask people how they felt about it. Even when she had a family emergency that required her to be out of the country, she still was completely dedicated to helping me with the process and was always easily accessible. Saba helped me feel so much more comfortable in a very new, stressful situation. She was incredibly honest, knowledgable, kind, patient, and fun to work with. Not to mention found my dream home in the perfect neighborhood that appraised for 20K over what I paid. And while this was my first home buying experience so maybe I would have been easily parents who have worked with multiple realtors were also blown away with Saba. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars!

    • Saba is the best agent we could have asked for in our journey to buying our first home. Now she is like a family to us. We can trust Saba to the moon and back.We initially met Saba when we were looking into Condos and then we shifted our focus to single family homes and eventually ended up coming back to condos. Throughout this 6 month journey, Saba had been extremely patient with us and understanding our needs. Once we settled on a unit, she was with us every step of the way even on loan qualification tasks and in helping us meet our aggressive move-in timeline. Besides being, patient, knowledgeable, thoughtful, she is also very thorough with attention to detail when reviewing documents. Purchasing a home can be a stressful process, but having a solid agent can make all the difference. I highly recommend talking to Saba. She is a rockstar agent!

    • Saba was my guide throughout the process of buying my first home.As you may have heard, real estate hunting in San Francisco is an intense sport. In my case, it took over a year, and that is not atypical. Saba was there with me patiently the whole time. She went with me to countless open houses, sent me leads and listings, talked me through the various stages of the process, and really got to know what I was looking for. I never felt pressured, I just felt she was looking out for my interests.When it came time to make my first offer, on "the perfect apartment", Saba talked me through the tricky process. Unfortunately, we were outbid (and then the seller came back for a second try when their chosen deal fell through, but then seller flaked again... it was a frustrating experience). Despite the disappointment, we pressed on.6 months later, Saba struck gold got me a tour appointment at a preview weekend for a new building, that I didn't even know existed. It was already a feeding frenzy, with most units already sold (one even got reserved while I was walking through it). Saba managed to get the seller to show me some as-yet-unlisted units, one of which was just right for me. In hindsight, I got a got a great price and some perks thrown in thanks to her negotiations on my behalf. I never would have even seen this apartment without her connection, let alone have closed it.All in all, working with Saba was a great experience. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anybody looking to buy in this competitive market.

    • We were so lucky that a friend referred us to Saba as my boyfriend and I started looking for our first home together. We were completely new to the process and were extremely intimidated by the San Francisco housing market. To say that we needed hand holding and serious expertise would be an understatement. However, we found that and more with Saba. Not only did she hand hold us through the process and attend every single house tour we went on, she acted like a true friend and gave us honest advice and even talked us through the heartbreak of the first offer we lost. We are currently living in the home of our dreams because of Saba. She knows the SF market like the back of her hand and had fantastic relationships all across the city. She helped us get a home under asking, in a fantastic neighborhood and made the process fun and extremely rewarding. I would refer her to anyone I knew looking to buy in the Bay Area. She is truly the best of the best.

    • Saba helped me purchase my very first home (in Hayes Valley SF) and I couldn't be happier about my choice of agent! As a first-time homebuyer, I had a lot to learn and become up to speed on to be able to make an informed decision. With Saba on my team, it was easy to get access to accurate, credible information. Thanks to Saba's data-oriented and professional approach, I never felt overwhelmed, confused, or pushed to make a rush decision.Saba put me in contact with the a loan specialist and worked with me to lock down a good interest rate. She was always on top of communications with the developer, the bank, the property management company, etc. I felt comfortable asking (and re-asking!) my questions from her over text, as she was always available to help me out or put me in contact with the right person to do so.The condo I purchased was part of a new construction, which took a few extra months to get ready for move-ins. It was tough to go through those extra months as a then renter, but Saba made the process a lot easier on me by being the liaison between me and the development and marketing teams on the property side. That made the whole experience a smooth one, even considering the delays in construction.I highly recommend Saba! In addition to all the above, she is very sweet, personable, smart, and energetic. With Saba as your agent, the process will not only result in an awesome new property purchase, but also in you making a great new friend!
