“Who’s Saying What”
...from Denice's cherished clients

I will be forever grateful to the colleague who recommended Denice Nagel, who is an exemplary real estate professional. I would say that Denice worked magic for me, but it wasn’t magic – it was her experience and expertise, the relationships she has cultivated, the time and energy she devotes, and the level of commitment, consideration, and caring she has for her clients. In the stressful world of California real estate, Denice was a staunch ally ready to use all her experience and resources. When the mortgage companies associated with my relocation team clearly didn’t understand the California home buying process, Denice had the absolutely perfect referral for my situation; when I needed a notary ASAP to re-do relocation paperwork, she made a quick call and I had a connection; and when there was something “off” with the paperwork for a previous renovation at what became my new home, not only did she accompany me to the City Building Division, she later called the inspector of record and was able to have the issue corrected immediately. Denice used her experience to coach me through the offer process, recognizing that while I needed to understand how the sellers would view my offer, I also needed to be comfortable with my offer, and, with offer in hand, she went to work again, presenting the offer in person, highlighting its strengths and the strengths of its foundation, and to this, I attribute being able to enjoy my lovely new home. Feeling this way about my new house is not by luck or accident; it is the culmination of the time Denice spent getting to know me, becoming acquainted with needs and desires, likes and dislikes, conventionalities and quirks – and I knew exactly how deeply she’d listened when she showed up on moving day with the “obligatory” lemon tree that was missing from the yard.

My husband and I have had the privilege to work with Denice on both the buyer and seller's side. We had the unheard of success to have our first offer on a single family home in a competitive  market be accepted over multiple bids. We credit this in part to Denice's strong network with local agents and deep knowledge and understanding of the market. Denice advocated for and helped with our new home even beyond the day we moved in! Denice made selling our townhouse during shelter in place markedly less stressful, in part to how organized and proactive she was in making sure we got all of the inspections and vendor estimates completed well in advance of listing. Her existing relationships with stagers, flooring people, etc. made dealing with all of these appointments a breeze.  Our townhouse had multiple offers within 5 days of going on the market and sold over the asking price and set a record for biggest sale within the complex.  Most importantly, Denice is an extremely kind and caring person and really put in the time and energy to get to know our family - we now consider her a friend!
-Emily and Ryan 

"Denice has helped us buy two homes, and we will work with her again for sure. She is fun, energetic, knowledgeable and very thorough. We could not think any more highly of her than we already do. Would give her more than 5 stars if I could!"
- Peter & Janet 

"We cannot recommend Denice highly enough! She's a consummate professional and knows Bay Area real estate like no other. Her intimate knowledge of seemingly every neighborhood and sub-division on the peninsula have helped us find the perfect house twice now. Her strategic knowledge of the market  also enabled us to prep and sell our old house in a multiple-offer scenario that got us top dollar. As important to how good she is as a realtor is how good she is as a person. She's extremely affable, easy to work with, patient, and unwaveringly kind. Our kids love her as much as we do! We've worked with her on three transactions - and have become good friends with her - since 2015 and are happy to recommend her to everyone we know!"
-Jared and Lisa 

"Couldn't have dreamt of a better agent than Denice! She eased all the fear and stress we had about selling the home that was in our family for over 40 years. Her knowledge of the market and connections to the tradespeople necessary to beautify our property are unmatched. Painters, landscapers,  cleaning crews, stagers, you name it, Denice has working relationships with all the best. She patiently answers every question and is always reachable immediately. Her professionalism is impeccable and her calmness, pleasant demeanor, and humor allowed us to be as relaxed as possible about the biggest transaction of our lives. Offers came after the first open house, and she negotiated the sale for over 200k above asking price. She is not only the best agent, Denice is a friend for life! Hope you get to experience the pleasure of working with Denice."

"Denice Nagel is the consummate real estate professional. I needed to sell my mother's home, and I live 3,000 miles away. Undaunted, Denice proved to be knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and a strong communicator. She recommended and oversaw contractors who did work to prepare it  for market, and worked with my family to develop a reasonable timetable. The house sold almost immediately, minimizing my need to travel cross-country more than a few times. I recommend her unequivocally whether you live near her or across the country. Grateful East Coast client."

"We are so fortunate to find Denice Nagel as our real estate advisor. She helped us on every aspect of the sale of our family property. We live out of the area and Denice managed to coordinate every single aspect of getting our home ready to sell. This was a hard process for us, since this home has  been in our family since the 1950’s. Denice was respectful and professional about every single thing we needed to do. Denice oversaw on going improvements that our home needed as well being respectful of our privacy and time. She went above and beyond with regard to service. I would get phone calls about things our property needed and she would make it her business to meet whoever she needed to meet at whatever hour. She even met an inspector at the house on a Saturday morning at 7am. She pushed when she needed to and let us move through this in a timely and respectful way. We were unsure we would sell our home, but after seeing how respectful she was in regard to our family, it was the right thing to do. We agreed on the sale price and had an offer in a very short amount of time with a short escrow. The buyers had a tiny glitch by having one of the new owners out of the country during a crucial time when documents needed to be signed. Denice was so professional at this time. It extended the close of escrow “process” by a week and she continued to be completely communicative during a time that could have been very frustrating for home owners/sellers. We are so grateful to Denice for handling the sale of our family property at a time that was very difficult for us. Denice deserves 10 stars! "

"Denice has sold 2 of my houses. After my first experience with her, seeing her thoroughness, trustworthiness, ethics, and strong advocation for me as her client, I knew I'd ask her to sell again should I ever have the need. Well 5 years later, I needed her help again. She  has a personal touch that is always professional but relatable. She knows her business, has the contacts to make it happen, and keeps you in the green zone, when the stress around moving puts you in the yellow or red zone stresswise. I would highly recommend Denice if you want someone who is always resourceful, on top of it, has good communication all the way through the process, and keeps a positive attitude no matter what! She brings a welcomed energy to mix. And where it is not always clear that all agents are on the up and up, there is never a doubt that Denice is someone you can trust. She even set me up with an agent in the new town I was moving to that had her same committment to integrity. I can't say enough!"

"We have known Denice for 11 years. We were immediately drawn to her when we met her at an open house in 2007. We found her to be very sweet, knowledgeable and easy to talk to and ask questions. She helped us sell and buy a home in 2007, and she made the whole process very easy, keeping us informed  daily and always making herself available to help in any way she could. Throughout the years, Denice was always available to answer quick real estate questions and do research for us. She helped us sell our home this past year, in about a week, by doing what she does best. We are very grateful to her and are always happy to refer her to family and friends."
-Cecilia & Ramon

"Denice was amazing. We were having to liquidate my grandparents estate and sell their lifelong home. We lived three hours away and in the midst of mourning the loss and being overwhelmed by the amount of work it was going to take to accomplish this task we met with Denice. With compassion,strength  and wisdom she took on this task and provided all the help we needed with professionals and handled it quickly and completely. She got us more than we expected for the property and the peace and comfort she brought to our family by handling all the details was priceless! I highly recommend her and feel she went far above what she was required to do."
-Debbie & Dick

"Denice has been absolutely amazing with both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our condo! With her expertise, we have gotten the house of our dreams on our first submitted offer! She knows everyone in the business and helped to arrange our offer so that it will be irresistible to the  buyers. The process was very easy and she helped us to take care of all the details and work in the process. With the sale, she helped our buyer to become the best buyer he could, in the process helping us to sell our lovely condo and helping him to get what he really wanted. Denice is very personable, kind, warm, but at the same time professional and knowledgeable. She is completely trustworthy and dependable. She is the lifeline in this tough business. We are very happy in our new house and I don't see us moving for a while, but we ever do, Denice is definitely the Woman for the job!"
-Liza & Randall 

"Denice Nagel is an amazing agent. She helped guide us through our first house purchase with the utmost expertise and endless professionalism. She spent countless hours of her own time tracking down various pieces of information for us, answering emails at all hours, and introducing us to  neighborhoods she knew would be a good fit for us. Her local knowlege, years of experience, and seemingly endless amount of energy make her a obvious choice if you're looking to buy or sell in the peninsula area. Denice went above and beyond for us, and I would recommend her to everyone in a heartbeat."
-Ben & Angeli

"Results of our experience with Denice surpassed our wildest expectations. She is truly an experienced diligent hardworking & knowledgeable professional. She walked us through every step of the process of selling our house with exceptionally sound advice as to how to achieve the best possible  result and arranged for competent craftspeople to prepare our house for sale after we had vacated and made sure that our listing would be noticed by the widest possible audience of prospective buyers. Anyone contemplating the sale of a home in a market she works would be hard pressed to find a better choice for a listing agent."
-J. S. Knight & Cynthia 

"We have had the pleasure of working with Denice three times in the past three years both buying and selling our homes. We first had great success with Denice when we first moved to the Bay Area, during which she helped us in securing our first home. We managed to buy slightly below the listed price for a lovely home, which is generally unheard of in this area. When time came just 3 years later for us to upgrade to a bigger home, we had a very narrow and specific set of criteria in a small limited area of the same Redwood Shores neighborhood in which we were interested in making the move. After more than a year of searching together, we finally found the perfect home, and she again represented us as our buyer agent and helped us get our current home during a tight seller's market. Through her diligence, professionalism, and her relationship with the sellers agent, we managed to purchase the house in what otherwise could have been a multiple bidding situation. Almost a month later, she represented us as our sellers agent in selling our old home, for which we received multiple, above-asking bids. And finally, she is a pleasure to work with, patient through what otherwise can be protracted and frustrating situations, and has the utmost sense of integrity. We indeed intend to work with her again when time comes for us to purchase our next investment property. We recommend Denice very highly. "
- Richard & Soo
"Denice Nagel is the best in the business. She is a true professional who pays attention to every detail. She has helped us buy and sell two homes and all four transactions went smoothly, mostly because of her efforts. Denice has many clients, but we always felt like we were the only people that she was working with at the time. She always puts her clients first and is willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best outcome. Shenegotiated well over our list price!  My wife and I would give Denice our highest recommendation." 
- Chris 
"Denice sold a four unit building for us in San Francisco. We got to choose from 9 offers and it sold for $154000 over the list price. She is the consummate professional. Denice explained the process in great detail and in language that a non-realtor could understand. She always kept us apprised of what the next steps were and always returned my calls and emails. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Denice to a buyer or seller. My husband nicknamed her the "Navy Seal of real estate."

"Denice if there is a real estate team event in the Olympics I am sure your team will get the gold medal.
Again thanks very much."
- Anitha 
"We worked with Denice to purchase a home in Noe Valley (San Francisco) as part of our relocation from Boston to the Bay Area.  We didn't know Denice prior to moving, but we were certainly thankful to have her as our agent.  Denice is the consummate professional; in fact, she sets the standard for professionalism as a service provider.  Denice did everything we could have asked for, especially given that we weren't already in the area.  She used email and the web to help us thoroughly prep for a house hunting trip, so that we could narrow down our search to a specific set of homes, but do so after seeing many.  Any question we could think of, Denice could help us answer.  She is thorough, provides good advice and is always highly organized.  We always felt like Denice had our best interests in mind, she would provide an opinion if we wanted it, but never over-inserted herself into our decision-making process.  Further, she maintains a network of other great professionals who can step in and help with the entire process from selection to purchase.  We closed on our home in 30 days from the first time we saw it!  We attribute much of the speed and efficiency of our home purchase process to Denice's ability to manage us and all the other actors through it skillfully.  Even after we got into our home, Denice helped us find other contractors who could help with various items we needed to settle into our new home.  I would highly recommend Denice Nagel."

"I just wanted to take a few minutes and say thanks for all of the help that you provided to Pam & myself throughout our house hunting journey. The local market insight you provided and all of your personal knowledge really helped us understand the  housing market along with the do’s and don’ts of how to acquire a home. Working with you was not only educational it was a very enjoyable experience; you changed this process for us from more of a hassle to an enjoyable journey full of memories. Your promptness, attention to detail and diligence made us feel like we were your only client.
I would be more than happy to recommend your services to anyone I know who is looking to enter the real estate market.
Thanks again for all of your help and I look forward to working with you on our next housing adventure."
- John & Pam

"When we decided to sell 'our baby' a rental condo we've owned for many years , a friend recommended Denice. There could not have been a better choice. She expertly sized up the current market for us. Having been an amateur in the buying and selling market, I can attest to her abilities to tell us what was necessary for us to show our condo in the best light and therefore get the best price. She not only told us, but also handled the details of getting the job done. Believe me, the current laws are a maze to understand. She took us through step at a time, always in a charming way, ready to answer all of our questions.
We complicated the situation by wanting a 1031 exchange. It was no problem for our Denice. My recommendation is total. She may use my name anyway she wants to."
- Professor Timothy 

"Whether buying or selling a home, Denice offers the most professional and rewarding experience. It has been a true honor to list our home with Denice. She is efficient, honest, experienced and a joy to work with. From now on, Denice will receive referrals and my business for all our Real Estate needs."
"Denice was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her high-end customer service is top notch. Her attention to detail and her thorough follow up is amazing. We are so happy to have worked with Denice on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.  We are very grateful to Denice and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
- The Guitron Family

"My husband and I just had twin girls and needed to find a home that was right for our family. We were really dreading the experience but Denice made the entire process so easy. She was incredibly flexible, knowledgeable, and quickly understood our needs and tailored our searches to homes that we were truly interested in. Within a few tours, we found the home we wanted. We can't thank Denice enough for all of her hard work including helping us with a lending agent. She still checks in every now and then to make sure that things are going well for us. We can't recommend her highly enough to anyone interested in looking for the home that is right for them."
- Jennifer and Donogh 

"I wanted to thank you for your assistance during the sale of our Aunt's home.  You were definitely the right person for the job.  We certainly took advantage of your knowledge of the local market, your connections with local contractors and your diligence in assuring we met our timeframes.  My sister and I knew that if you said you would do something, that you would do it.  We never doubted your commitment to us.  You made us feel like your only client when I know for a fact we were not.  Your attention to detail is impeccable.  Trying to manage the sale of a home from 3000 miles away could have been horrific.  From our side, you made it seem almost effortless. Thank you again."
- Lori Perdigao

"I was a first-time home buyer and new to the area. Denice was very good about finding the answers to my home buying questions and her team was very knowledgeable - from loans to title questions, they answered every question that I had. Denice is great at listening and honing in on what I was looking for when it came to home buying wants and needs. Denice's knowledge of the SF Bay Area is exceptional. I've already recommended her to a coworker whom has also bought a home."    
- A. Lee 
"Denice was exactly who we needed. We were selling our Aunt's home in CA, but we were in NJ. We didn't know how we would do it. A family member found Denice and we called her. She was amazing. Since we were not able to be at the house, she managed painters, carpet installers, plumbers, estate sale reps, pool maintenance people and various other individuals who needed access to the home. She would go to the house when needed and it was such a comfort to know that she was there to manage the entire sale. She is professional and very knowledgeable. It was a blessing that we found her. I would highly recommend her."
