My Wife & I are very thankful that Rochelle was our realtor. Buying a home in the current climate is a daunting process, but Rochelle provided a steady hand throughout and we truly believe that with a different realtor we would, either not have been successful in getting our dream home, or would’ve ended up in a bidding war and stretched our budget. I would highly recommend Rochelle to support anyone o...

Words can’t describe how amazing Rochelle is! Her personality, and work ethics are impeccable! She was our agent from the beginning when we first bought our home, all the way to end of selling. She’s so approachable and always in constant communication whether on or off the clock. Whenever I was in a situation, she seemed to know who to contact or link with for anything home related. I would definitel...

How was our experience with Rochelle? Amazing. We were looking to buy a family home in Mill Valley. She’s the most honest, smartest and fastest realtor we’ve ever worked with. She listened to us parents and our children to our wishes. I was in Europe when we made an offer. I haven’t even seen the place in person! This is how much I could trust Rochelle. I knew she just wanted to best for my family. I ask...

We have purchased 1 and sold 2 properties with Rochelle, and I couldn’t recommend her more. When Rochelle puts her mind to getting something done, she does it—exactly what you need in this crazy market. You’ll never worry about closing details or finding the right buyer with her connections. Her energy will make you feel like you’re her only client, even though I’m sure she always has plenty. I sold my l...

What can we say about Rochelle that hasn’t been said before? We’ve worked with Rochelle on two transactions - she represented the seller during the purchase of our condo and most recently, represented us on the purchase of our home. Needless to say, she was so great the first time around, we knew we had to use her again to represent US! She is not only knowledgeable on everything and anything, she will g...


I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rochelle on two separate occasions: once as a first time home buyer, she was selling a new condo complex, and once again as seller and buyer when I outgrew my condo. From the minute I met Rochelle as a first time home buyer I could quickly tell that she was a straight-shooter and someone who went the went the extra mile for her clients. Not only did she sell an ent...

My husband and I decided that we needed more space than we had in our condo. We knew, however, that we would have to sell our condo to be able to afford our next home. We resigned ourselves to the idea that we'd probably have to sell our condo first, rent temporarily with the hope that we get lucky enough to find our next home within a reasonable timeframe. Enter Rochelle! We knew Rochelle as she was ...

What do you truly want in a real estate broker? Local knowledge - yes. Negotiation skills - of course. Understanding market trends - sure. Hard work ethic - without a doubt. Besides these factors, what you really want is a broker with YOUR best interest at heart. You're looking for your home, your safe haven, your oasis amongst the madness of life -- the decision of buying a home is so stressfu...

Honestly, you couldn't pick a better agent. When I started I had little to no knowledge of the property market in San Francisco. Frankly, I was a little worried, as friends of mine who had recently purchased said the market was tough, fast-paced and rather overwhelming. I knew it made sense to buy a place as I see myself living here for quite some time, but really had no idea where or how to start. I ha...
