I found Cece to be a tireless worker with dogged determination, an exceptional knowledge of the San Francisco marketplace. 

I first met Cece in 1998 when I was looking for a condo in the city. This was at Portside, an Art-Deco modern low-rise near the Bay Bridge. Cece was working for the sales company on the ground floor and I was just a walk-in, meeting her by the luck of the draw. She showed my partner and I a few possibilities in the building and I was immediately smitten with her charm, wit and keen intelligence. She also had a wide-eyed enthusiasm that was attractive. She might have sold me anything that first day – but she listened to our specific needs and desires and eventually found us one, then another wonderful condo that we purchased as investments and later sold at a sizable profit. Since she was so great on both the purchase and sales sides, the relationship was sealed.

Years later in 2008, when looking for another special living space in the city, Cece was again determined to find something to meet our needs. After an exhaustive year-long search, we found the truly spectacular view condo on Front Street that became our San Francisco pied-a-terre. Last year, when it was time to give up the home in the city, I turned to Cece for her unique marketing approach that proved to be remarkable for a quick sale in a very competitive market.

Throughout these transactions, I found Cece to be a tireless worker with dogged determination, an exceptional knowledge of the San Francisco marketplace.  Beyond that, her warm demeanor and sense of humor about the real estate game also turned her into a long-term friend. Many times we would enjoy a drink and dinner after a long day of intense shopping for the right perch. Throughout that personal contact, I found her to be more than an agent and grew to appreciate her multi-faceted personality. Selling real estate is only one of her talents: when she sang in perfect pitch at her own wedding, I realized I knew someone truly remarkable in many ways.

 

For any future ventures in the city, I would not hesitate to turn to Cece Blase for help. In fact, she’s the only one I’d call.
