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.

"I had a positive experience with Clara, not only once but twice as my real estate agent. Clara's skill set went above my expectations in both instances. She envelopes her knowledge of the market, economy, aesthetics of a home, and utilizes a wide variety of resources to transform a home into a beautiful property. With Clara's guidance, the transactions with her went smoothly and effectively. I would recommend Clara for your real estate needs"

"I am a first-time buyer and Clara was an absolute godsend -- I can't imagine doing a house transaction without her by my side now. She is incredibly caring, patient, thoughtful, delightful, and very diligent. I was told it's rare to find agents who truly look out for your best interest, but Clara is that rare diamond. She went above and beyond in several dimensions, from actively sourcing houses to see despite an incredibly long list of criteria, replacing me as a stand-in for some inspections when I couldn't attend during work hours, conducting interviews to help me source the best person for a variety of jobs, spending hours on calls or in person late into the night to educate and explain everything from documents to the process, and simply being there to support me and my family as a kind human being. "

"I feel extremely lucky to have been referred to Clara Lee. The bay area housing market is extremely competitive and finding a house in the right location with the right price was not easy. We were outbid several times and now I've learned that the way to win a house around here is to have a very capable agent. Clara went above and beyond when making the offer on our current house, making sure we made the most attractive offer, negotiating with the sellers, and other small tricks that she knows about. We would not have won without her expertise and efforts. Another special quality of Clara is that she is trustworthy. She is fair and honest with all parties. One of my biggest concerns was finding an agent that was honest and would have my best interests in mind. Clara will not push you to make offers and she will actually dissuade you from purchasing houses that she thinks you won't like even though it would make her job quick and easy. You will be in good hands with Clara!"

"Clara has been an amazing agent. She has helped me sell multiple properties, all for a far higher price than I could’ve imagined. She’s also helped me buy property on a number of occasions - helped pick the right location and price. In both buying and selling, she’s made the process seamless and easy. Anyone not working with her is making a mistake."
