The process of buying or selling real estate can be challenging if not managed properly. While each transaction is unique, everyone wants essentially the same thing – the best possible price with an easy and seamless transaction. But some real estate markets are more difficult to manage than others, like the red-hot market in the San Francisco Bay Area. For that, you need a competent, caring, knowledgeable REALTOR ®. One who is experienced in not only the values and availability of property in your specific area but also the best way to avoid frustrations. You have found that REALTOR ® when you find Clara Lee.

While Clara can provide real estate services to the entire Bay area, her special focus is Santa Clara, San Mateo as well as southern cities of Alameda counties. This area is actually a collection of individual communities each with great schools, cultural diversity, and a “hometown” feel. Each has their own brand of architecture, amenities and housing opportunities from an elegant condo with fabulous views, to a cozy family home, to an investment property. Clara and her family live, work and play here. It is her backyard.

As a seller, you would be well advised to follow Clara’s directions. She knows what sells at an optimum price. Frequently even minor changes combined with Clara’s “ Unique Marketing Plan” and strategic marketing campaign can bring multiple offers from qualified buyers maximizing the value of your property. She can also provide you with a resource list of stagers, subcontractors and tradespeople to simplify the process for you. She also assists you in evaluating the merits of every offer.

As a buyer, Clara Lee will teach you how to look at a prospective property purchase. She will show you a vision for the property and not just the superficial staging that entices some buyers. She can provide the names of appropriate lenders, should you need a mortgage loan and will coach you on property values and writing a strong offer based on her market research and experience.

Whether buying or selling, when you work with Clara Lee you realize that you have not only a highly skilled REALTOR® and negotiator but an advocate on your behalf. Clara knows that truly effective negotiation takes time, patience and experience and she is ready to put those qualities to work for you.

Clara leverages her reputation of honesty, integrity and fair play with her colleagues on behalf of her clients which leads to finding those “off market” properties plus smoother and more timely closings. Her hard work, ethics and determination gives her the ability to channel her limitless enthusiasm, energy and experience toward making clients’ goals a reality.

Clara has chosen to partner with Coldwell Banker Realty’s Palo Alto office. Their cutting-edge technology, supportive and experienced management, and current relevant market data help Clara provide the best Client Care possible.

"We have absolutely no regrets in choosing Clara as our realtor! Clara never hesitated to go the extra mile to facilitate our home buying process. She really cared about us and always offered valuable advice on things we were never aware of. Unlike some realtors who only want to secure a quick deal, Clara was different - she truly wanted us to be completely satisfied and at peace with our initial offer and eventual purchase. And never once did she pressure us to make decisions quickly - in fact, she wanted to be sure that we weren't being overly excited and impulsive as first-time homebuyers. Clara made the whole process seem like a breeze with her extremely detail-oriented and efficient nature! She is extremely reliable and can always be trusted to get things done ASAP. Homebuying might be an ordeal for some people, but Clara worked her magic and made our initial fears vanish. If you want a realtor who truly cares about you as a person, choosing Clara is the way to go! "

"Clara is our real estate agent, and I feel so lucky to have her there while we were looking for our first house! Clara is very patient. Before we even start going to open houses, Clara spent hours understanding our needs, educating us and explaining current market. She accompanied us to the first few open houses and during the open houses, she explained to us in detail how to observe the condition of the house. As we got more and more familiar with the process, Clara didn't go to open houses with us anymore; however she would still go to visit our favorite houses and provide valuable suggestions, no matter how busy she was. Clara never pushed us into buying a house and was always there to help us when we need her. She toured the candidate house herself and provide suggestion; she gathered as much information as she could to help us make an informed decision; she prepared offers for us regardless of how late into the night it was. I would highly recommend Clara!"

"So, perhaps I am remiss for not having posted this review ten years ago when Clara first entered my life ... But, the silver lining regarding my delay is I now have such extensive experience working with Clara that I can now expound on all that is amazing about Clara Lee. At this point, Clara has aided me five separate times with regards to my real estate and housing needs. Clara couples unsurpassable professionalism and real estate acumen with compassion, diligence and intelligence. Really. There is no one who works harder than Clara for her clients (more about that below). She listens to what you want and I can count on her input and guidance in every instance. This is because I know she has her finger on the real estate market and pulse of various regions in the Bay Area and has my best interests at heart every single time. She goes above and beyond EVERY single time. If you are looking for an agent, you need to contact Clara immediately!"

"Clara helped my fiancee and I buy a single-family home in Santa Clara in an extremely competitive market. She always took the time to make sure we were well informed about the home buying process and the current market, and she was very responsive to our emails and texts at any time of the day and night. We challenged her a bit by asking her to make an offer with 1 day's notice and making 4 offers in 4 days. However, she worked tirelessly to make it happen on time. When we made an offer on the final house, we were competing with a higher bid. Clara managed to work her magic and win us the house! Clara works very closely with a loan agent named Caroline Wolf. They have both earned my absolute trust, and I highly recommend working with both of them."
