After nearly two years of contemplation and light research, we had finally formulated visions of our future home and were ready to take the plunge into the housing market. As first time homebuyers, we felt intimidated facing the aggressive competitiveness in the Bay Area. Thankfully, we found Dino through a friend’s recommendation, and he most certainly went above and beyond, far exceeding our expectations.

We were novices to the whole homebuying process, but Dino was the perfect navigator and coach, leading our team the whole way. He has admirable patience and a knack for translating “real estate lingo” into familiar terms. With his knowledge and experience, he guided us in making competitive offers without ever making us feel pressured or uncomfortable.

Some of the most impressive traits that distinguish Dino from other realtors are his flexibility to work with our schedules, and his quick immediate action and turnaround time. As healthcare providers, we were particularly appreciative of our conference calls in the late evenings after work. If we were interested in making an offer, Dino immediately visited the house the next day to do his own research and give us his thoughts. And after further discussion if we wanted to proceed, Dino patiently and thoroughly reviewed the disclosures with us, and would even have the offer package ready within only one to two days. Dino’s expertise, efficiency, and quick action were crucial in our home purchase. Even after completion of closing, Dino continues to help us along the way as we prepare for updates and renovations!

Dino is warm, friendly, patient, communicative, and extremely knowledgeable. The homebuying process felt more like working with an extremely knowledgeable friend, rather than a business transaction. We couldn’t have been happier with Dino every step of the way, and we would most strongly recommend him to anyone seeking to find a home in the Bay Area!
