Alicia recently helped us find an apartment in San Francisco for our son. She was organized, and knew the sections of the city well. We visited nearly twenty apartments in two days and we obtained our first choice. The competition for apartments is fierce and we would never have been able to obtain what we did on our own, despite being California residents and having spent time in the Bay Area previously. Wonderful person, knows her subject and knows her city. Highly recommended without reservation.

Alicia was very easy to work with in our search for a San Francisco rental apartment. The rental market in the Bay Area can be difficult to navigate and complicated, but she made the process very simple and fun. She provided a great orientation to the various neighborhoods and we were able to secure a great apartment in less than 2 days. I would definitely recommend that you hire Alicia if you need to find an apartment in San Francisco and have a limited time frame. She was a tremendous help to us and very professional. Great job!

Recommended by a mutual acquaintance, Alicia was great to work with. Most people who have been through a relocation process, particularly from the other side of the world, know how complicated and stressful the predicament of international relocation can be. Alicia’s deep local knowledge of the Bay area was key in finding the right house. Our new home meets both my professional constraints (budget, commute, etc.) and my family needs. Alicia went also beyond her role by providing numerous advices that have made our transition much easier. I can highly recommend Alicia for your relocation needs in particular if you are moving from the Old world.

It was by far the best introduction to San Francisco. We are a family of 4 coming from Spain and we really did not know much about the city. Alicia understood exactly where we wanted to live and which schools to take us. We are extremely pleased with their services and all this would not have been possible without her. We strongly recommend Alicia, she is very knowledgeable about the Bay Area and takes time to understand your needs and provide adequate solutions.

Alicia is a very professional and results oriented relocator that knows every corner in San Francisco, can charm and convince any landlord and follows a very tight and efficient schedule. Alicia adapts immediately to customer needs and therefore delivers a perfect service. In my case, in just two days, we have visited over 15 apartments and singed the perfect deal thereafter. Hence, I can highly recommend her services.
