I cannot say enough good things about Danielle Lazier and her Compass team who guided us through the sale of our home during one of the most tumultuous and uncertain times in the San Francisco residential real estate market. Danielle expertly help us navigate the process through everything from heightened emotions involved with leaving our home in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, logistics with showings and staging, and even with quickly finding a buyer.
Her network was able to locate an extremely well-qualified off-market buyer that helped short-circuit the listing process by bringing us an attractive offer without the need to stage and vacate our home in the middle of the pandemic. It saved us significant costs, both emotionally/mentally, as well as economically. She was even able to negotiate a lease-back period following a 10-day all cash close that allowed us the flexibility to move at a more leisurely and far less stressful pace than would have been afforded by a normal timeline.
I have worked with countless Realtors and intermediaries both personally and in my own profession and can honestly say that Danielle is hands-down the best there is. She is such a bright and well-rounded individual with a high emotional IQ that allows her to really understand a client’s needs, respond to their concerns, and truly act in their best interest every step of the way (must be the solid East Coast liberal arts background…). Even at times when she may have sensed some natural waffling or uncertainty on our side, we never once felt pressure from Danielle to proceed unless we were completely comfortable. We always felt she put our interest ahead of her own throughout and never strayed from her role as a fiduciary.
Electing to work with Danielle based on her customer service alone would be good enough reason to endorse her, but she also demonstrated total command of the SF real estate market nuances and was able to provide real-time market insight in the midst of total uncertainty during a period of wild fluctuation. We are so thankful to now have had two opportunities to work with Danielle Lazier and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again and would not hesitate to whole heartedly recommend working with her to our closest friends, family, or anyone looking to buy or sell a home in San Francisco.
