“It was a pleasure working with Helen on the purchase of my new home. She is extremely service oriented and incredibly organized. Helen was consistently through during the buying process and in keeping track of all the necessary paperwork; her attention to details made all the difference in how smoothly the process progressed. Helen took the time to educate me on the buying process and provided helpful suggestions. When the time came, she also made the effort to strongly advocate on my behalf. I can wholeheartedly recommend Helen as a realtor without reservations and definitely would choose to work with her again in the future.”

"I met Helen about a year ago, prior to selling my house in San Ramon, CA. While getting to know her, I realized what a talented, high-standard, and ethical person she was. I called her and she immediately went into action. Her recommendations were spot on and very valuable. I followed her suggestions and never had any regrets. After some negotiating, my home had been sold with a three week closing. She had the skills, ethics, and knowledge to make this major transition, go right in the worst market circumstances possible. She delivered everything she said. She deserves a 10+ star rating!"

“Its not just that Helen sold my house for a great price, it's how she did it that won me over. Okay, I admit that I thought the house was just fine the way it was and that it was already decorated perfectly, but Helen walked me through the numbers and showed me how investing a relatively small amount in updating the bathroom and kitchen would pay me back many times over. I trusted Helen's knowledge of what potential buyers of my hosue would want and I have to admit, I thought it was far better. Helen found the right people to do each job and didn't spend a penny more than I needed to. I trust and recomment Helen Ivanov.”

"I went with Helen to look for a home in an area I did not previously know. The decision was based on a recommendation from the specialist who was referred to me for the purposes of obtaining a loan. From the very first conversation, I was struck by the extremely detailed questions she asked to determine the type of place I was looking for. For example, the questions related to the location of my family and friends, my current job, as well as my plans for changing jobs and possible new locations, the kind of commute I would find acceptable, the living environment that I might enjoy, the price range I sought, plans to expand my family and additional needs that I may have down the line, my sensitivity to the property’s condition and the likely costs associated with any needed renovation. After collecting all the relevant information, Helen not only did a wonderful job of zeroing in on the properties that fit my needs but also took the time to drive me around the area to give me a better sense of the kind of lifestyle I would enjoy. Unlike other real estate agents that my family members have worked with in the past, she was the first to take the time to educate me on what it takes to successfully bid and go through the process of purchasing my first property without exerting any undue pressure on me to make a decision that I was not comfortable with. She was the epitome of professional behavior because she fully represented my interests."
