  • Sophia listed and sold my home

      Sophia is foremost a professional who is skilled at negotiating for the benefit of her clients. We were truly and pleasantly surprised by the conditions she was able to negotiate for us on top of selling the property under an accelerated timeline. Her professionalism is complemented by her thoroughness and work ethic. The first time we met with her, Sophia gave us a customized presentation that covered everything from the current Bay Area market conditions to the specific market conditions in the neighborhood to comps and proposed sale price. She was patient and took all the time we needed to make sure we had all our questions answered. This being our first sale that was further complicated by a 1031 exchange, we were quite overwhelmed. Sophia took us step by step through the entire process. Sophia also surrounds herself with a strong team...results oriented professionals in escrow and 1031 exchange. They were all patient, helpful, and just as wonderful to work with. Sophia is also kind and goes beyond and then some to help her clients. We had an HOA and Property Management company that were being very difficult through the sale process. Sophia patiently help us with every step of communication with them and meticulously followed up. Despite having closed over a month ago, Sophia is still helping us through challenges with the Property Management company!

    • Sophia listed and sold my home

        Sophia is dedicated to each of her clients, helping us to understand the process and setting up the schedule for all elements of preparing the house, publicity preparation and marketing, staging, photography, and open houses. She made recommendations regarding what upgrades to the property would be beneficial and which would not. She scheduled meetings with us and with the inspectors and followed up on each item. I have just noted the 102 emails we exchanged through this process. Even while on a short vacation out of the country, Sophia made time to coordinate the things that needed to be done to review and accept an offer. I would definitely recommend Sophia Delacotte to friends.

      • Sophia listed and sold my home

          I first met Sophia a few years back at a financial gathering that my wife and I were invited to. She sat at our table and was smart, energetic and engaging. So when my brother passed away and his duplex went into probate, our family lawyer suggested her and I immediately decided to go with her experience. That was a decision that made life much easier for me and my family. She led every step of the process with integrity, energy and know how. We didn't want to put money into the duplex so she helped get it ready to sell and she coordinated the resources that made it look so much better. She took me through all the paperwork with ease, constantly updated me on the process, and gave me a lot of confidence that everything was being done professionally. The place sold way over what I thought it would with multiple offers. If I need a realtor again, I would not hesitate to work with her, and I would recommend her to others.

        • Sophia listed and sold my home

            Sophia is THE expert in our Real Estate market. We could not have completed our sale as easily or as successfully without her expertise. Sophia is knowledgeable, professional, available, knows our market inside and out, great communicator, well organized, stays on schedule, answers all questions, shares great resources, a decision maker, provides guidance. Sophia gave 100%.

          • Sophia listed and sold my home

              Sophia is a true expert when it comes to understanding and conveying real estate trends and the current market. She explains her marketing strategy, provides options but leaves the decisions up to her clients. Sophia was very direct and proactive in resolving unexpected challenges when they came up. If you are interested in buying or selling a home I would encourage you to contact Sophia.

            • Sophia listed and sold my home

                Sophia did a superb job of selling our house. She is the consummate professional. She's highly efficient, anticipates issues, and is easy to work with. Her legal background proved invaluable as we were selling a house in a trust and she knew exactly how to handle this. Sophia even rolled up her sleeves and spent quite a few hours helping us fix up the house we were selling. We highly recommend her.

              • Sophia listed and sold my home

                  I would highly recommend working with Sophia, who made the stressful situation of selling a house smooth, efficient, and clear. I originally worked with Sophia a few years ago to sell my brother's house, which had the added complication of being in probate, and when it came time to sell my mom's house this year, I didn't hesitate to go back to her. Both times I've worked with Sophia, she had all of the contacts and experience to get the house ready to sell in as hassle-free a way as possible, which made the process of selling much less daunting. Her legal background was a huge help, especially with the probate situation for my brother's house, and I felt secure that she knew the ins and outs of each part of the process. Sophia took the time to walk me through everything so I felt confident on each decision along the way, from talking me through the paperwork, to reviewing market research for the asking price, to discussing incoming offers, to figuring out the title company paperwork after closing. She was always available to answer any questions or worries I had - quick, responsible, and never made me feel like she was tired of answering questions. She kept me in the loop every step of the way, and made sure I always knew what was coming next, all with a real knack for clearly explaining her thought process and strategy. Sophia is the epitome of a responsive, approachable, and ethical professional, and will treat you like a true partner in the selling process. If I need help again for selling, I'll always think of Sophia, and I'd recommend her to anyone I know.

                • Sophia listed and sold my home

                    I am so glad I engaged Sophia to sell my deceased Uncle's townhouse on behalf of his trust. She applied her experience, professionalism and work ethic to prepare the property and present it to the market ASAP. She found a great contractor, made sure it was listed as a two bedroom with the MLS, she was at the property on a Saturday watering the plants, holding ladders for the contractor to make sure that ducts were connected correctly... I could go on about the excellent service. I am so impressed. I'm very satisfied with the selling price and the timeline from listing to sale. Thank you, Sophia. You are a real one!

                  • I was a first time home buyer in the US market, and Sophia has been fantastic helping me understand the whole process. I am so glad I hired her as my agent. She made every step go really smoothly and I have now found my dream house in the Bay area! She has been very responsive and quick to react when I needed offers to be put together. I strongly recommend Sophia for a Bay area acquisition, especially for non US citizens who are not familiar with local practices. ~ Sylvie B. Sophia Delacotte is thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful. She assisted me with the sale of my condo. The condo sold after one open house, and I received multiple offers. Sophia screened all of the offers and recommended the offers which would close with the least amount of hassles or surprises. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market. With her legal background, she is a strong and effective advocate for your side of the transaction. Sophia always kept me in the loop, was clear with what she needed, and the timing of the response to what she needed. She is a pleasure to work with, responsive, and committed to making the entire process go as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend Sophia and would definitely work with her again in the future. ~ Laurie O I had to sell my house fairly quickly because of a move and imminent wedding. Sophia proved to be the best choice I could have made. She was extremely resourceful and guided me expertly through paperwork and expectations. The house sold after only two open houses, and we received multiple offers. I was also very satisfied with the price obtained. In addition, she made the whole process as painless as can be. Sophia provided very solid support, and her legal background was very helpful to navigate the documents required. I was glad she was on my side! I highly recommend Sophia Delacotte as your real estate agent. ~ Yves E. It was wonderful having Sophia help my mother sell her house. She went above and beyond our expectations, and was very patient when addressing my mothers concerns, making the process as smooth as possible. The house sold on the first open house, and we received multiple offers. Sophia screened all offers to make sure the one we chose would close without any surprises. I highly recommend Sophia to anyone needing a great realtor. ~ Phil R. We used Sophia again this Spring as we had to move to reduce my commute. Sophia not only helped us to sell our house in record time but also was very diligent in managing the multiple offers market - she carefully analyzed all the options and helped us dot the i's and cross the t's with choosing the right offer and family. When it came to finding our new home Sophia pulled out all the stops to ensure we got the home we wanted. Sophia built a strong relationship with the selling agent and ensured that our interests were protected. Staying up late into the night negotiating she secured the home we were looking for. Sophia also advised us throughout the process and made sure we did not just settle on any home - someone we can rely on with strong values a great work ethic and her customers interests being number 1. ~ Amin D. Sophia Delacotte was the selling agent for our home in San Jose, California in September 2013. We were in contract for the sale in about three weeks. Sophia was a consummate professional from our first meeting, to our open house and through to our move out of state. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and, with her legal background, a strong and effective advocate for your side of the transaction. She is also a pleasure to work with, very responsive and is committed to making the entire process as stress free as possible. I highly recommend Sophia as an agent who is head and shoulders above most others in the profession. I feel we were fortunate indeed to have had her as our agent. ~ Kathy D. Because of Sophia's clever strategy we made our offer sight unseen. We are now the proud owners of a Condominium. Because of her tireless efforts she made the whole process seamless. Thank you Sophia for all your hard work!! ~ Margie A Sophia made my short sale purchase as easy as it could be. Honest, tough, does what you ask. I was very pleased. She Made sure I had all the right inspections to protect myself. ~ Paul B. As a mortgage originator for over 15 years, I have worked with hundreds of real estate professionals. Sophia is actively involved with the purchase from the time of pre-approval to closing. However, it does not end there. She maintains a business relationship with her clients and is there to assist with any needs from service providers to home information. Her clients are her priority and they are fortunate to have such a fine professional representing them. ~ Camille D. Great advice , incredibly efficient! Sophia successfully guided us to buy a house in a very competitive market, and helped manage the transaction every step of the way. You'll want her on your side! ~ Caroline M. I have found Sophia to be a thorough, ethical, and extremely competent real estate professional. Her knowledge of this challenging real estate market and her passion to advocate for her clients is remarkable. I have worked with many realtors and I count Sophia at the very top of her profession. I have complete confidence that if you are looking for a no-nonsense real estate professional, you will find one in Sophia Delacotte. ~ Marc A. Sophia is the most honest, ethical and loyal realtor I have ever worked with. To this day, I remember her telling me that if the sale wasn't in my best interest, she wouldn't feel comfortable representing me. It was very refreshing to know that the client's best interest was her foremost concern. She stands by her clients from the beginning of the process until the ink is dry on the final document, and follows up after the sale to ensure no hidden obstacles have emerged. She is diligent in her efforts to manage the process of a home sale with all parties involved. She keeps her clients informed every step of the way and works tirelessly to forge a positive outcome. Sophia is also like a member of the family. She displays a true and genuine concern for the welfare of her clients and displays this not merely through words but through her actions. Without hesitation I would recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor that is transparent, ethical, and a true professional. ~ Greg Z. Sophia is very thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. The short Sale process is confusing and worrisome but Sophia was able to help me navigate the paperwork, deadlines and legal jargon. She was respectful, responsive and most importantly, she delivered results! I recommend her. ~ Ann A. I will relocate with my family from Europe to Silicon Valley in summer 2012. Early in my quest to find a home, I was very fortunate to identify and work with Sophia Delacotte, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker in Almaden San Jose. Her help has been invaluable every step of the way from presenting our offer to the close of escrow a few months later. She has been remarkably helpful in particular with regards to dealing with all financial complexities attached to a cross border transaction. Thanks to an amazing sense of attention to details, she masterfully coordinated the entire transaction with all stakeholders and parties involved and made us feel completely safe about buying our first home in the USA. She has clearly exceeded all my expectations and provided a level of service largely beyond the call of duty of a regular real estate agent. I highly recommend Sophia to anyone looking to make a real estate investment in the Bay Area. ~ Nadia K. My wife and I met Sophia socially, and she offered to advise us in our search for investment property in another city. Since then, she has been incredibly generous with her time, and has given us precious recommendations on what deals to go for, or run from. We are very grateful and wish her the greatest success. ~ Michel B. Working with an agent like Sophia is like a breath of fresh air. She is diligent about providing information when requested and quick to respond to needs, or concerns. Her dedication to her transactions, from beginning to end, helps to insure quick and timely closings. ~ Heather C. Sophia helped us purchase our first home, she was patient and addressed all our concerns. She's very responsive and I couldn't have picked a better real estate agent. She is the best!!! ~ Sal C. Sophia is a straight shooter. I learned very quickly that it is of essence to have a Realtor who is bullish and will help you get what you need. Sophia was always keeping us in the loop, very clear with what she needed, the timing of it and the why she needed it piece. The short sale process if very confusing and frustrating for a buyer and yet she seemed to make it as seamless as possible. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to sell! ~ Cindy L. We met Sophia at an Open House and immediately clicked with her. We have worked together for several months now on various property and development projects. As her clients, we find her exceedingly smart, dependable, and thorough. On our very first collaboration with Sophia, she worked long and hard, carrying us through every detail. She had our back the entire time so we had peace of mind throughout. She's a real pleasure to work with; any client would be lucky to have her in their camp ~ Nora N.
