"Atsuko Rivette started off with sending us a very in-depth analysis of market pricing for our current home and the timing of it couldn't have been better since we were just starting to look for a new home.
Throughout the entire process of finding a home to buy, she has been thorough in understanding our needs, budget, and discussing any doubts that we had about the properties. We were shown a large variety of homes at first since we weren't completely sure of what we wanted and this was a great help for us even though it did require a lot of effort on her part. There was never a hint of it being an inconvenience or taking up too much time which we really appreciated.
The first realtor we used for our current house basically taught us the red flags to watch out for in a realtor (aka we weren't happy with him). So this time around we were much more selective / picky and we are very happy to have gone with Atsuko. Here are some of traits that we decided were important when finding an agent. First one is that she's very trustworthy in terms of looking out for our interests. She's definitely in the category of "let's take some more time to find what you want / don't have doubts on" rather than being pushy and wanting to make a quick sale. Second would be that she's insanely responsive to communication. We could always reach her when we needed to. She would also always stay in contact with us in terms of how things were going or if any new developments were made. So there was always two-way communication going on which we liked a lot. Third, is being very detailed in reviewing documents about the house and also pointing out things that we should know about. Those things could range from special property taxes like CFDs / Mello Roos, potential hazards around the area, and wording in the mountains of paperwork. There were several items in the documents that she pointed out which I personally missed even though I read through most of them. Having the extra step of double checking was very helpful for us.
Real estate transactions are always a stressful time but having a good agent with tons of experience and transactions under their belt made it much less stressful for us. Overall we are very satisfied with Atsuko Rivette and would definitely recommend her for anyone in the area."
