"Alan Canas and his team were exceptionally helpful"
Alan Canas and his team, including Jacob Barnes and Gina were exceptionally helpful during our process of selling one house in San Mateo and purchasing another in Pacifica, CA. From the beginning of the process, Alan's advice led to the best possible outcomes we could have asked for. He offered his team to help do a remodel and maximized our sale of our first home. With just the first open house, we received multiple offers, all exceeding our asking price. The offer accepted well surpassed what we expected.When it was time to purchase our second house, he was on the hunt for us. When we found the house that was perfect for us, the first house we put an offer in on, he was able get our offer accepted that same day! With this competitive market, we were shocked, and elated! Just weeks later, we received the keys! Alan and his team worked hard behind the scenes in order to make this process seem seamless and easy. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

"he is a closer!"
Brilliance, professional knowledge and keen savvy + genuine warmth and care = Alan Canas. Alan has been nothing short of amazing in helping me search for, think critically about, and ultimately secure and buy my dream property in San Francisco. His combination of knowledge about not only properties and markets but people, as well as his professionalism and warmth -- and humor! Alan is a great wit! -- make him a delight to work with. I have never felt so looked out for, supported, and well cared for by a real estate agent, and it's not just his kindness: what really sold me on Alan is that he is a closer! When you find the one you want, he will tell you exactly what you need to do to get it. I intend to work with him again and again for both home sales and purchase -- and look forward to it!

"Thank you, Alan"
Thank you, Alan, for helping us buy a home, providing helpful advice, and being so friendly. We were recommended to Alan by friends who bought a high-end house with his help. We were looking for something a lot less expensive, but Alan still knew the market very well. Finding the home was up to us, but once we were ready for disclosures, Alan helped us with recommendations on a range of what to offer (and counter), making paperwork easy, and answering all our questions within 24 hours. He prides himself on his reputation, and several of the sellers' agents said they knew about him. I'm not an expert, but I got the impression that his most valuable skill was knowing what it takes to win the bid without overshooting - the right range for an offer, which contingencies to require or not, time to close, rushing us to get paperwork in early, etc. In the Bay Area, it is so competitive, I think that is what you need, and we were able to get a place on our second offer.

"bidding and buying process went quite smoothly"
We met Debbie at an open house she was hosting, and we all got along immediately. We particularly appreciated her down-to-earth nature, something we were looking for in a realtor. She was knowledgeable of the areas we were interested in, and quick to follow up on all properties we asked about. Plus, the bidding and buying process went quite smoothly. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the SF Bay Area.
"never had to worry"
Extremely knowledgeable and helpful, was able to help Shepard us through what is a very stressful process. Very responsive and accountable, never had to worry about her end of the deal. Would highly recommend Debbie's services.
"responsible agent who truly represents my interest"
I met with Debbie over a Zillow inquiry. As a first time buyer, I don't know a lot about home purchasing process. Debbie has been very helpful sharing her extensive knowledge about everything.More importantly, Debbie is a responsible agent who truly represents my interest as the customer, not just wanting to close up a deal. I still remember during the searching process, there were a few times when she reminded me that I shouldn't go for the house because it's defected, even though it's likely a done deal if I did do so. I recommend her for her sense of responsibility.Finally, it's a pleasant experience working with Debbie. She's a person who's easy to talk to, always there to help, and gets things done.

"great return on investment"
Alan and his team helped us sell our mother's home via a probate sale. He had a lot of really useful knowledge about the probate process. His team worked with us to come up with a targeted remodel/improvement strategy to get the home ready for market with appropriate updates that could be implemented quickly and provide a great return on investment. Our update effort paid off, and Alan's marketing strategy (staging, targeted listing date for a low inventory window, open house & agents' tour schedule, offer deadline, etc.) resulted in a quick sale at a great price!
"house sold in record time"
Alan has high integrity, incredible energy, and many creative ideas to sell a house. For my home in Portola Valley, he did a wonderful job setting the price with me and preparing the house for showings. The materials he produced were outstanding, especially the drone pictures which showed how beautifully my house was placed surrounded by open space in ways no other visuals could have shown. The house sold in record time, at the price I wanted, and the whole process was as painless as possible. I highly recommend Alan and his excellent team.
"sold for well over the asking price!!"
Alan and his exceptional Team did an excellent job in guiding us through the sale of my parents San Francisco home. There was a lot to do to get it ready for sale and well worth it. As predicted he sold the home after a one day Open House, it was amazing. Oh and it sold for well over the asking price!!

"Alan Really Came Through for Us"
Alan was amazing! We thought we were going to buy a house in several months, but we found the one we wanted sooner than we expected, so we had to scramble to get an offer together in just five days. Alan really came through for us. He helped us understand what the price point would be and what would be a competitive offer, he kept us organized, and he just worked really hard for us. And best of all: we got the house! This was our first try as first time home buyers and we couldn't have had a more efficient and pleasant experience. Thank you, Alan!
