Where do we begin? You have done so much for us and we are so grateful. You made our move from the East to West coast so much easier. From our first conversation I knew you would be a great resource and wonderful to work with. We truly appreciate all the extra effort you have taken with us. We have been so happy working with you and are so happy we met you.
We wanted to sell our single-family home investment property in Cupertino and purchase a multi-residential building on the Peninsula. I had known Connie through volunteering at our children’s school. Thinking she would be as diligent in real estate as she was in her volunteering, we hired Connie. She exceeded our expectations. We were worried how the market would react to our Cupertino home as it was on a busy street. Connie led the efforts to make sensible updates to the home prior to putting it on the market and did a fantastic job in the contract negotiations. We ended up getting multiple offers and selling the home for more than we expected. On the buy side, Connie sent a mailer to all apartment building owners whose property fit our criteria. When we found the apartment building we wanted, we felt that she looked out for us, making sure all the information we needed to make a purchase decision was there before we committed. Once we did proceed, she helped negotiate a price less than asking. She managed the 1031 Exchange coordinating with the exchange and title companies without a glitch. We’ve been recommending Connie to everyone who has mentioned selling/buying, including our neighbors, who recently said they were thinking about talking to a few realtors to see what they might get for their house, and the next thing we knew the new owner is moving in, and we’re pretty sure our (former) neighbors never talked to another Realtor after they met Connie! If you’re thinking of selling/buying, just take a few minutes to talk to Connie and you’ll be convinced that she can represent you brilliantly.
Connie was recommended to us by a top executive at Alain Pinel. She assisted us in both the sale of our Sunnyvale property and the purchase of fabulous Saratoga single story home. We appreciated her attention to detail, utmost professionalism, years of experience, and pleasant demeanor. She was very accommodating of our busy schedules and easy to work with. She has a vast network and will help you find a property or sell your property.With the sale of our property, she guided us (gratefully) to staging our property in order to properly show it in the most attractive light. Her careful suggestions (i.e. swapping out the California King bed in our master to a more suitably-sized-for-the-room Queen bed) allowed the room to show off the fantastic view from our top floor. She even personally brought over a welcome mat for the front door. Talk about attention to detail! In the end, we had (14) offers all over asking. We always felt assured that she had things under control and was three steps ahead.With the purchase of our Saratoga home, Connie prepared careful, analytical reports so that we could understand exactly what our money was getting us per square foot in what neighborhood. When we had to deal with a less experienced selling agent, she helped that agent guide their client (the seller) in order to make for a smooth transaction for all. She worked tirelessly to keep all parties informed as to the status of the transaction, even keeping the mortgage guy in line!
Thank you for helping us find a beautiful home! You are amazing to work with. We would love to work with you again in the future (as well as recommend you to anyone that asks) because of your professionalism, attention to detail, and thoughtfulness.
I’m so glad I had Connie help me sell my house. There were many challenges with the property, but Connie knew just what to do to make it attractive to buyers. I trusted her judgment at every turn. She had to work extra hard on this deal, but she stuck with it. A true expert, good negotiator, and excellent human being. I highly recommend Connie!
We want to thank you for the excellent service you provided with our Saratoga home purchase and Sunnyvale home sale.
Dear Connie, We tell everyone that our Calif. agent did the best job, helping us prepare our house for sale, and being available for us at all times. We appreciate the attention to detail, from the open house for realtors, the open house for the public and following every lead as they came in. It was less than a month and we had an offer and a buyer. Amazing, in this economy we appreciate the good advice you gave us and after the sale the CD containing all our paperwork and also tracking down some our mail that was not forwarded. We also feel that we have gained a friend. Good job. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting to sell their house.
You acted as the representative of the buyer and me, the seller, and did a professional above-board job. I never felt as though you took sides at all. You provided excellent service right from the start by effectively communicating in a professional, caring manner. I had moved to Colorado and you effectively dealt with the tenants and facilitated a thoughtful closure to that relationship. You are honest, patient, trustworthy and an excellent negotiator.
“Connie Miller is a very cool, sophisticated, knowledgeable professional real estate broker. She is very perceptive and sensitive to all of the parties in the transaction. She brings to the table some very good negotiating skills. She held our hand throughout the entire process and was there for us when we had questions. I really felt that Connie knows her business. When she saw our house, she knew how to unlock the value of it. We found a special buyer, but they needed a special realtor to help communicate the value of the home. Connie was that person.
We bought our house with Connie, and she was just great. I would work with her again any time, and can recommend her strongly. Top qualities: great results, personable, expert.”
Connie Miller helped me purchase a new home in Los Gatos and sell my Palo Alto condo. My Palo Alto condo closed in a little over a month—and this was over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season. This is the 8th home I’ve purchased – Connie is by far the best realtor that I have ever known and my experience working with her is unparalleled. One of the best things: once I told Connie what type of home I was looking for, she immediately “got it” and never sent me on a wild goose chase or tried to show me houses that were all wrong. She never wasted my time. Her integrity is impressive.Connie and I worked for about 5 months to find the right house and looked from Menlo Park, down to Los Gatos. Every week, she previewed homes for me and sent out inquiries to potential sellers in desirable neighborhoods. On Fridays, I received a list of homes to look at with commentary about the “fit” of each plus some she thought were a long shot but I might want to see for various reasons. She was so patient as I vacillated through making an offer or not….Once I made an offer and the offer was countered by the owner. When I decided not to counter offer (because I had decided that the house just wasn’t quite right), she was patient and never became frustrated with me.Not only is she truly a delightful and fun person to work with, but she is a working woman’s dream: every need from online document review & signatures that can be reviewed at 11 pm at night to a network of professionals (attorney’s, mortgage broker) and tradesmen (painter, handyman, cleaners) were available and at my service when required. Everyone she referred me to has provided excellent and timely services – and was reasonably priced.When I decide to sell my new home, Connie will be my realtor. I highly recommend that she be yours.
Connie is wonderful to work with. She is thorough and has really taken the time to ensure we’ve been happy with the process of each of the three property purchases and sales we made with her. She definitely goes the extra mile to put all the possibilities on the table and is a great sounding board when making decisions. We will definitely continue to use Connie when/if we decide to move again!
Thank you very much for your outstanding service as our real estate agent. We were impressed by your professionalism, work ethic, and commitment to us as our agent. We also really appreciate your referrals (roofing, termite, bathroom etc.) Thanks again for your hard work.
Your high energy and passion for your work were essential to make this transaction successful. We really appreciated your ‘can do’ attitude that solved any problems and resolved any issues that came up. You constantly communicated with us on key issues. Your extensive knowledge of real estate transactions kept the process moving quickly while avoiding delays in the process. Your skill and knowledge were essential in avoiding errors and delays that would have impacted our ability to close the deal quickly. Your expertise made this deal happen efficiently and flawlessly. You were a pleasure to work with.
Connie is the best, a real pro who knows what’s she’s doing at every step of the selling process. She’s a rare combination of marketing/promotional specialist, financial wisdom/experienced negotiator and compassionate human being.
Choosing you as our realtor was a great decision. Not only were you very professional, you also had to accept our changes of mind and our poor knowledge of how thinks work in this part of the world. So thank you. We think that you are a clever realtor and a great person, and we consider you our friend. We will certainly ask for your services if we decide to buy or sell properties in the area.
Words cannot express how grateful we are for the way you handled the entire process. Mom and Dave spoke highly of you. Now we know why first hand. We could not have asked for a better person to handle the sale of Mom’s house. You are very good at what you do, very professional and kind. We appreciate all of your hard work. From start to finish, you have been an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us.
After interviewing several real estate agents, I immediately decided Connie was the perfect partner to sell my mother’s house. The house had many challenges. She presented a very detailed plan to prepare the house for sale in 3 short weeks without breaking the bank. She orchestrated everything, and was very hands-on like no other agent I’ve worked with before. The investment paid-off with several very good offers. She was always available, and walked me through all the steps to a very smooth transaction, in record time. I highly recommend Connie. It was the best decision I made.
Connie helped me sell my townhouse and buy a new home. Both ends were multiple-offer situations, and her help was invaluable in putting together a compelling offer to get the house I wanted, and also in marketing my townhouse so as to attract the best offers and realize the full market value for it. Throughout both transactions, she stayed on top of all the details, coordinating the interactions so that nothing got dropped and the process didn’t get derailed anywhere. Her attention to detail and detailed progress reporting kept me at ease and confident that everything was proceeding to plan, greatly reducing the stress of the whole process. If you’re looking to buy or sell property in the area, I highly recommend Connie.
We had looked for a house for two years (with other agents) with no success. Then we hired Connie, who found us a house in three weeks and got it for us within our budget. She’s a great realtor! She also helped us sell our Los Altos home over Christmas Break. We got multiple offers and were very pleased with that present. Top qualities: great results, high integrity, creative.
