Tom sold my home in Vallejo. Solano County was not his usual beat but it did not affect his attention and adapted to the market when needed. His team was quick to deliver the services needed to prepare for market: painting, house cleaning, staging, etc. As a single woman, I appreciated the fact that Tom went above and beyond and helped me move heavy items out of the property and helped look for hard to find lightbulb replacements (16 w T type for under kitchen cabinet). He purchased replacement pan for the washing machine and a new door mat for the front door. He also went above and beyond to help the buyers through the whole process as they were first time home buyers. I highly recommend Tom Gore for your Real Estate needs. Oh and he found me the place I moved to also in the perfect location and steered me away from the shaky neighborhoods. He really cared for my safety!

    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.)

    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.

    About

    I am a real estate broker who assists qualified folks in buying or selling real estate. I mainly work in Santa Clara County and San Mateo County. I list for 4% total which saves sellers an automatic 2%, and it is full service. I'm with you every step of the way. For buyers, I offer full service with previewing and showing, or I offer money back when you find the property on your own and are pre-approved. I just write the offer, and then follow through on the escrow process. On lower-priced properties, I keep $5,000 and then share the remainder with the buyer. I also am a Feng Shui consultant and master dowser, so I offer that service as a gift to my sellers and buyers. To my sellers, I make sure the house is cleared of all negative energies to promote an easy and profitable sale, and to the buyers, for the house to be clear of all negative energies that may affect them adversely in any way. This is my gift to my clients. Clients love the smooth and easy escrows and the fun we have, and they are thrilled that it was so easy when they were told it could be a nightmare. I truly support my clients every step of the way.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.

    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 do real estate agents charge?

    Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

    • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
    • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
    • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
    • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
