"Thank you both so much for your guidance and expertise throughout the entire home buying process. We felt so taken care of and lucky to have been working with you.”
"The aspect that impressed us most in working with both of them was the vision and marketing plan that they had in mind for the sale of our condo and then putting the steps in place to ensure those plans were carried out. The lead-up momentum and excitement created for our place lead to 2 very solid offers just as it hit the market. Both offers were higher than we expected and we closed on one of them soon after"
"The world of service is a varied landscape: there are those who talk a good story, and those who work well; those who want to, and those who can; those who keep trying, and those who get tired, the “let me get my work done” crowd, and the “what can I do for you” people... Karen and Rebecca WORK, really work — intelligently and effectively; with energy, spunk, and a smile. They bring to the table knowledge, integrity, and family values. They jump in both feet (all four feet?) and become an ally in bringing about a successful transaction. They get results. Did any one say “realtor for life”? Did anyone say “loyal friends”? Did anyone say YOU GO, GIRLS?!”
"DUO is an incredible real estate agent, she was always available to me, super professional, and closed our deal even up against 15 other offers! I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone buying or selling a home"
"Our emotional attachment to the house, the endless decisions on sale timing, presentation, etc. and impossible paperwork requirements, were taken care of by you in what amounted to nearly a 'fun way'."
"We bought and sold during the holidays, which are already stressful, and Karen and Rebecca managed everything with ease and finesse that saved us from duress. We knew we could count on them to cover every detail, large or small, at every step of the process. It was comforting to know that we were in good hands at all times. We would highly recommend Karen and Rebecca to any persons looking for excellence in the real estate industry.”
"Your expertise, personal feedback and honesty helped us move into our dream home.”
"We felt confident that you were looking out for us, because you understood what we were looking for in a house, a neighborhood, and an investment. You took the time to learn what was important to us. We were not sure exactly where we should look, and you gave us suggestions based on value for dollar and quality of life.”
"From our first meeting to the close of escrow, it could not have gone smoother. Your determination, optimism, and organizational ability made me feel confident that I was dealing with solid professionals.”
"Karen and Rebecca were fantastic to work with, and I recommend them without reservation.
They helped our family get the most for our home, and even though I have bought and sold numerous homes, their expertise and diligence helped my family get the maximum value with the minimum effort....and avoid the headaches and pitfalls that were there had we not chosen wisely.
A pleasure to work with them, and I would use them ( or their referral ) again anytime !”
"Your performance was exceptional, and we would recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home in the Portola Valley area. Should we move back to the area we will undoubtedly give you a call.”
"In my 15 years in business, I’ve worked with very few people who match Karen and Rebecca’s level of professionalism, follow-through and extraordinary attention to detail. Their entire focus on executing my priority (and non-priority) wishes was remarkable. More importantly they really listened to me, and anticipated my needs better than I could have myself. In fact, they took the entire burden of managing and coordinating every step of the sales process off my shoulders, which made my experience even more enjoyable.”
"I greatly appreciated your attention to my specific needs and as a first-time home buyer, I was grateful for all of the hand-holding that you offered as I walked through the process.”
"When we decided to relocate to the Bay Area from Del Mar, we contacted family friends to get recommendations for real estate agents to help us in our new home search in Menlo Park. Of course, Karen Fryling and Rebecca Johnson were the first agents recommended to us because of their strong presence in Ladera, Portola Valley and Menlo Park. To start, Karen met with us and took us around different areas that would fit our criteria. Then once we narrowed our focus and found a house we loved in Ladera, they helped us win the home in a multiple offer situation. They made sure our escrow, rent-back, and repairs went smoothly. Now we are looking forward to moving into our new home. ”
"Your knowledge and experience with the housing market resulted in a quick sale at an outstanding price. The whole process from house preparation to the close of escrow was smooth and well managed.”
"We couldn't be happier with our house-selling experience with Karen and Rebecca. They over performed in all aspects from collaborating on setting the price, to staging the property, to presenting the property to a significant number of qualified, interested buyers, to helping negotiate the right deal.”
"In the competitive Bay Area market, I wanted top notch professionals that were knowledgeable, detailed, and responsive. My experience of my home sale was extremely positive! You made is all seem effortless.”
