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!

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!

David gave me good advice on the project. He doesn't just ask for business, instead he suggests me to make sure if an appraisal is necessary. He is such a great honest professional! He is someone who really cares and think from the client's perspectives. Thank you! David. Even this time I might not need your service, but you are on the top of my list to do business with.

    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

        I met Soky when she the Executive Assistant to my boss' boss; I had come directly from an internship, after college, into my new role and only knew how to be disciplined and organized in my work. Soky Gallevo was always a name I could believe in, for when events and all parts to executive assistance were to go well, for the benefit of the executive that she supported and for those who they lead. Soky was a kind and steady colleague whose professional and caring touch had made her work a pleasure to count on, and, whenever fortunate to be in a project with her, to contribute to.

        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 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.

        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 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 be included in a home inspection?

        A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

        • Home structure
          • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
        • Electrical
          • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
        • Plumbing
          • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
        • Appliances
          • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

        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.
