Client Testimonials for Rebecca Brooks
Rebecca Brooks is the consummate real estate agent. From start to finish she was present explaining each step of this unusual and life changing process. Rebecca was transparent and knowledgeable while walking me through the stages. She always made sure I was fully informed so that I could participate and make a confident decision every step of the way. Her expertise made a dream come to life. She was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her.
– Roberta B.
I had been looking for properties in San Francisco for about 6 months, it wasn't until i found Rebecca Brooks online that I finally felt like i had someone on my side, working for me and my interests. In addition to her regular email notifications of properties that fit my criteria, Rebecca had an eye out for the details and nuances in which i was interested. She made an effort to prescreen many places during brokers tours and was always prepared and well-informed when she would take me out to see properties.
On what would become the last day of our search, we walked through two properties that had potential, but I still didn't feel certain. I asked if she was ever able to walk into a house with a client and say with certainty, "this is it." With a mix of optimism and reality she let me know that it was indeed possible, but not necessarily often. As we walked into the third house of the day, we both new that this was it. With Rebecca's advice, I put in an offer that day and it was accepted the following day.
This was my first home purchase, Rebecca walked me through the inspections process, all the while helpful and supportive. I had some specific issues with the status of the house on city records and Rebecca went above and beyond to negotiate with the city agencies to straighten out the situation. In the end I got the perfect house, with more of my desired features than I thought was possible, and for a great price.

Rebecca Brooks is an amazing, top notch Realtor. Her extensive experience really paid off when we found ourselves putting in an offer on an REO. She immediately found out important specifics about the property which revealed it would be difficult to get a loan for this property. The loan broker we were working with made the comment, 'Your Realtor is really on top of things. If you worked with a less experienced Realtor, you could have wasted a lot of time and money. I'm really impressed'. So we are not the only one really impressed with Rebecca. She always immediately and appropriately responds to every obstacle and is in constant communication with us.
Whether it was finding a lender for a complicated property situation, or finding a flat wall plug so that the stove could be pushed back, Rebecca's ingenuity, thoughtfulness, and perfect etiquette has made her a joy to work with. She is incredibly patient and took us to see every property we wanted to see (we ended up looking at over 30 properties). Her knowledge about resale value and San Francisco neighborhoods was a key factor when we put in an offer for condo. We found the perfect place at an AMAZING price and are overjoyed with the condo we purchased with Rebecca's help.
I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone thinking of purchasing a home in San Francisco.
- Drs. Kristina and James Z.
Rebecca did an outstanding job for us in finding a home in Sonoma. We lived out of the area, so Rebecca spent a great deal of time previewing houses and providing both positive comments and critiques. The comments were amazingly accurate and allowed us to focus on the homes we knew would be potential ‘fits.’ The previews included videos which showed both the general neighborhoods and the houses' interiors and exteriors.
After we found the perfect house, Rebecca's knowledge of the interminable paperwork involved, and her coordination with the lender, the title company and the sellers' agent, made the closing process, if not enjoyable, at least quite hassle-free. We have recommended Rebecca to friends who are looking in Marin and Sonoma counties and will do so again.
- Martha S. & Kathleen W.
As a first time home buyer the journey one must go through to purchase a house is a seemingly overwhelming and sometimes daunting task. I don't have a million bucks, and I was barely able to scrape together a down payment. What kind of ego do I have to call a Real Estate Agent and tell them that I want to buy a piece of property in San Francisco in my narrow price range?
Lucky for me Rebecca Brooks was kind enough to respond to my e-mail inquiry. Words do not properly communicate in this message the amount of gratitude and admiration I have for Rebecca. Her passion for her work, dedication to her client, and ability to execute outstanding action items in order to close a deal is unlike most professionals you meet in any industry. She brings an amount of loyalty, focus, honesty and good ole' fashioned hard work with her in every task she's engaged in. I searched for Agents over the course of two years and never felt more confident in a decision then I did when I asked Rebecca to represent me.
I don't know much about Real Estate but I do know that when you’re making decisions that could affect the next 30 years of your life you want someone that is totally dedicated to your success in order to properly guide you. Rebecca is one of these people. Any organization would be lucky to have Rebecca.
- Connor M.
A heartfelt thanks for all of your help with the recent sale of our house. I'd say we hit a home run! Throughout the marketing process, we found you to be professional, caring, very informative, and fun to work with. In everything from property preparation, staging, photography, brochure design, and especially, your patience in explaining the required disclosures — you did it all with great thoughtfulness and attention to detail. In short Rebecca, you are terrific and any client would be lucky to hire you!
All our best, - Mark & Gretchen
Rebecca not only provided exceptional service and assistance whilst seeking a property and up to closing, but she also ensured that we never felt pressured into making decisions. She was always available and kept us constantly updated on progress throughout. We have purchased a number of homes and have never experienced this level of support during the stressful and always challenging purchase, closure and, now moving from abroad processes... Even after the deal closed she has continued to provide prompt and efficient assistance and support, well above what we have experienced previously when buying a home. If we look to buy or sell in future she'll be the first to know.
– Craig & Marjorie T.
Going into a real estate search knowing what you want and can afford isn't enough. What Randy and I learned is that you also need someone on your side who listens, understands your point of view, and then makes it happen.
Rebecca Brooks was that person for us. We never had to question her concern for and dedication to us and we never felt pressured at any point. By working with Rebecca we were able to get the place we wanted for a lower price than what we were willing to pay. We couldn't be happier!
- Randy H. & Neal C.
We loved Rebecca! She was so dedicated & helpful! We will refer everyone to her! Thank you!

I couldn’t have done it without you! Your professionalism, integrity & high standards make you shine!

-Laurie & Bob L.
It is nice to see a real estate agent who is actually 100% involved in the process of helping a buyer purchase a home. You made life easier!
- Matt M.
Rebecca works very hard to present a property and she knows how to deal with people. She has an experienced point-of-view which is quite helpful.
- Ninette S.
She really goes above and beyond for her clients. We will use her again.
- Rick & Gina G.
We would like to thank you for doing a great job! I almost gave up but you enabled everything to work out. The place is great!
- Michael S.
Many, many thanks! You looked long & hard for us. Your broker must be very happy to have you in their office. We appreciate your sticking to it and beating the bushes for us!
- Eliza & Gene H.
I want to thank you for your excellent efforts in listing and marketing my property. You have shown yourself to be a very skilled professional with a very pleasant and positive style of communication. I enjoyed working with you.
I’ve worked with realtors and purchased property in several cities. I give Rebecca Brooks high marks for her integrity, hard work and customer service. She was very attentive and we made a good purchase. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
- N. Chang, MD
My decision to purchase a flat in San Francisco was very poorly timed as it coincided with a long holiday out of the country, but Rebecca's energy and organization made the process quick, easy - and even fun!
