I would like to start out by saying that these guys are total pros and amazing to work with! I’m a small business owner in Millbrae, CA and with all the rain we’ve had over the last few weeks, the commercial building we lease started to develop leaks. My landlord is not real receptive to building maintenance requests so unfortunately I was left with the task to try to get these leaks evaluated on my own. I posted the project on Thumbtack and within minutes was contacted by Geovanni with G.T. Roofing. He listened attentively as I explained our problem and answered a million of my questions. He was understanding that we had a limited budget and were only interested in repairing the leaks as opposed to replacing the roof given our inattentive landlord. As others have stated in their reviews, Giovanni is so professional and pleasant on the phone that I decided to forego other quotes and go with G.T. Roofing right off the bat (I normally go with at least 3 quotes). Within two hours Geovanni and his crew, which includes his father, were up on our roof diagnosing the problem. Turns out the source of the leaks was an easy fix requiring some sealant and some minor repair which took about 20 minutes. I feel very fortunate, we saved a ton of money going with G.T. Roofing. I really appreciate their honesty and professionalism. I 100% recommend these guys to anybody no matter how big or small the job!

I hired CFI Construction to frame a new 501 sq ft building on our property to be used as a sewing studio. Today, they started and finished framing the walls, and enclosing the entire building with shear panels. Next week, when the trusses arrive, they are going to install them and install roof shearing. I learned of CFI two days ago on Thumbtack. Having observed their work today, I feel like the A team just fell out of the sky into my project. They are phenomenal in every respect. Their work, honesty, and work ethic are models for the construction industry. They have years of experience framing large projects, both residential and commercial. I was humbled that they chose to work on my project. They are not solely a framing company. They can build a building from start to finish, I just happened to hire them for framing. Having enjoyed today's experience, I'm going to use them for more phases of our project. Both the owner of the company (Steve) and one of his sons (Drew) were on site the entire day, as well as their crew of 5 framers. I wanted to write this review now, even though they still have trusses to install and the front porch to frame, because I want other users of Thumbtack to have the same benefit of a 1st class, licensed, professional construction company, as I did today. I strongly recommend that you seek out CFI Construction for your projects. They are the real deal. Thank you Steve and Drew.

    Actually we only have experience with Mr. Valero and his small and personal agency in its capacity highly professional and responsive Property Managers, (not as a Real Estate brokers) but we would strongly recommend the firm if your looking for first-rate knowledge of the West Contra Costa County market -- buying, selling or investing. It's a real 21st century phenomenon when a small, personal agency like this, using the power of the internet and the latest technology can out-perform the big faceless mega-firms AND still give the personal attention of an old-fashioned "mom-and-pop" operation. Best of both worlds: 5½ stars! (if that's allowed.)

      Anna was extremely instrumental in our quest for the new family home. We've been first-time buyers and Anna helped us understand the market, define the goal for our dream home and she then run the execution all the way to contract signature and purchase transaction. Anna is definitely recommended both for purchasing and selling transactions - she knows Bay Area real estate in and out! Olga and Sergii Gorpynich, Bay Area home owners.

        I am a relatively new real estate agent. I met Jasmine about 5 months ago at an open house. I was very impressed with her knowledge and customer service skills. Since we met I have not hesitated to contact Jasmine for advice and to get her take on specific situations that have happened to me. I consider her a mentor, and a good one at that. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Jasmine would service all her clients in an outstanding manner. By the way, I contacted Jasmine at some very odd hours and she was always responsive and happy to help me out. Like · Reply · 1 · May 10 at 11:31

        Valerie is a true professional: honest, timely, knowledgeable, ethical, warm hearted, aware of the pressures and needs of her clients, and has the best interest of her client in mind at all times. With Valerie’s professional knowledge, guidance and willingness to bear with my eager persistence I was able to find my own piece of paradise. Valerie was fantastic! I found my place while roaming through open houses over many weekends and Valerie understood the perfect fit and helped me close the deal. My move involved selling a property to purchase a new one, providing a direct, daily, comparison between service quality, reliability, professionalism and personal connections between my two agents. Valerie not only provided leadership and support during my purchase process, she was also invaluable in guiding me through the necessary timelines to complete my sale as well. My sale and purchase occurred within a span of eight weeks. Valerie was by my side to help me find and complete all documents, negotiate and process the legalese of all papers ‘real estate’. She personally presented my offer, with my handwritten letter to the sellers wrapped in a fine bottle of red wine! Classy. The true gift that Valerie added goes beyond the art of property sales; Valerie enthusiastically shared her favorite local hot spots, including eateries, boutiques and fun places to explore. It was clear that my happiness was important to her.

          Moni helped us purchase our first home over ten years ago and since then we have purchased four more rental properties through her. For each transaction she has been there for us from start to finish. She advices us on loan options, property selection. She is not just another realtor but a trusted advisor when it comes to real estate investment.

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            What is a home inspection?

            A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

            What does a real estate agent do?

            Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

            • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
            • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
            • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
            • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
            • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
            • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
            • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
            • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
            • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
            • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

            How do you find a good home inspector?

            A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

            If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

            What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

            Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

            If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

            What should you look for in a real estate agent?

            When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

            Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
