Jeannette Lager and Jon George, Buyers

The other Realtors I interviewed did not come close to matching the professional, rational approach taken by you.

Wow, as always, all bases are covered. Thank you both again for everything. What a dream transaction and process. Almost surreal.

Stella Kim, Seller

They are pros who communicate well and are attentive to the myriad of paperwork details involved in a transaction.

Before I agreed to the listing, I interviewed several other brokers, but was impressed by the strength and integrity of their presentation, the thoroughness of their market analysis, and level of experience they bring to their work. I felt confident that they were pricing the property fairly, even though theirs was not the highest price… more “They are pros who communicate well and are attentive to the myriad of paperwork details involved in a transaction.”

They parlay their individual talents into a combination that inspires trust and confidence.

They say that after getting married and having a baby, buying a home is the next most stressful event in life. Well, selling a home is no day at the beach either. Unless, that is, you happen to know someone who refers you to Derek Chin and Natalie Rome.

You are awesome. Every time I started to freak out you were always able to put my mind at ease.

They helped me purchase my home in San Francisco in one of the most difficult markets the city has ever experienced.

I have never had an agent (or, in this case, agents) so consistently “ahead of the curve” …. 

I just sold my condo in South Beach in what was probably the smoothest and easiest real estate transaction I’ve ever encountered — and I owe it all to the incredible work of Natalie and Derek. Their approach to the entire process was so professional and straightforward (I could add honest, trustworthy, and so on,… more “I have never had an agent (or, in this case, agents) so consistently “ahead of the curve” …. “

You were a godsend in our situation

Our family was relocating from New York to San Francisco with basically no knowledge of the local market.

This was the best sell and buy experience imaginable.

Natalie & Derek guided us through the process of selling one house and then buying two more.
