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. Coldwell Banker Realty was founded in San Francisco in 1906 giving Clara and her clients the best of both worlds, Local Traditions with Global Connections.

"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!"

"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"

"Clara made our house buying experience as painless as possible. She started off by adding us to her mailing list. Basically, we gave her the details of what we were looking for and when a house came into the market with those specs, it was e-mailed to us. This was useful to us, too, because it kept all of these houses in our own personal list and we could look at them and compare. Next, she took us to any of the houses we wanted to look at. We looked at a few houses before we actually found a house that we wanted to bid on. Not only did she treat us as a friend during this whole process, she did even more for us after the house was sold. Since she knew we were planning our wedding, she helped us set up the fumigation appointment, helped us set up utilities, met with the carpet guys, etc. It's hard to find realtors like that. Usually, it's "oh yes, I got my commission, NEXT!" But, I never got that impression with Clara. In fact, we still see each other from time to time. "

"Clara is a true professional! She was always prompt and thorough in responding to all our inquires. In our absence she took care of everything to get our home ready to sell. She advised about repairs and preparations to ready and stage open houses as well as how to get the most exposure in defined time lines. We valued and trusted her guidance and suggestions. Both my husband and I highly recommend her."
