Horn Toot! SOMA Loft(s)

We first worked with Cece in 1998 when she helped us buy our condo on Langton Street. From the moment we met her, we were taken by her honesty, sense of humor, and terrific personal vibe. When we decided to sell Langton Street eight years later and do a 1031 Exchange into a true live-work loft for our graphic design business, we knew we wanted her to represent us again.

The first step was getting the Langton unit ready for market, which required extensive advance work. Tenants had left the place a disaster zone and cleaners, trades people and stagers were needed to get it looking as good as it did before. Our personal situation also posed challenges as we were now based in New York and travel a great deal internationally.

Our limited availability required Cece to manage much of the repair and preparation of the property herself and work remotely with us by phone and email during the marketing, offer, negotiation and escrow period. When we were able to speak with her personally, she always made us feel at ease and confident in how things were moving forward.

On the buy-side, Cece also made sure to leverage the days we were in town to our best advantage by making sure we saw the absolute best properties for our needs. Ultimately her network of agent and personal contacts helped us find us the ideal loft on Tehama at 5th before it hit the market. We made a quick, clean offer and are thrilled with the new space we now use as our West Coast office. She is exactly what we were seeking in a real estate agent.
