â€œThis letter is being written as an extremely strong endorsement of the services provided by Zee Maestre as the real estate agent that worked so tirelessly on the sale of our Lafayette property. â€œI was the trustee of my parentâ€™s estate and was tasked with selling their home in Lafayette. We interviewed six brokers and were immediately drawn towards Zee as she didnâ€™t try to inflate expectations and seemed imminently capable. Prior to giving her the listing, she was the only broker out of the six who started gathering information on the property and its history including permits pulled for a remodel. All that work and she didnâ€™t even have a contract yet. â€œOnce she became the listing agent, her efforts continued to exceed expectations providing rock solid advice about every aspect of the sale. Perhaps, most importantly, when things got a little tense she kept a level head and calmly guided the nervous customers (myself and my family) towards a positive resolution. We could not possibly have been happier with her efforts, her advice or the result. â€œShe is indefatigable and a very calming influence during what can be a very trying exercise. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality realtor. â€“Scott McFadin â€œIf you are looking for a Realtor, Zee is the best. She cares more about your needs than anything else. She is dependable and reliable which are the two most important things for home searcher. We almost lost the house we really liked and Zee was able to turn everything around. ACTION & RESULTS!â€ â€“Wen Hsu & Shujung Kao â€œWorking with you on finding me a home has been the best experience I have ever had. You are truly one of the most caring, efficient, trustworthy, knowledgeable Realtors that I ever had the pleasure to deal with. What a great listener you are. You met my needs over and over again, by keeping me informed, your follow-up on all aspects of looking for a home and then getting the home. I was never stressed when I was dealing with you. I trusted you and felt like you always had my best interest at heart. If I hear of anyone looking for an excellent Realtor, I will give them your name.â€ â€“Toppy Valenzuela â€œMy wife and I have found Zee as the most professional, ethical and conscientious Realtor we have ever known. Her care, attention, maximum efforts provided us with years of happy home sales and purchases. We will be with Zee as our Realtor until time ends and the earth stops rotating...â€ â€“John & Maria Dulaney â€œOur overall experience working with Zee as our Realtor was OUTSTANDING. We could not have asked for more. The quality of her work and her dedication to her clients are beyond words. She pretty much exceeded our expectations. She would give us updates; pros and cons of the situation and made sure that we understand. She did it with a certain amount of coolness and friendliness. She really knows her craft and the result. We got the house we dreamt of in less than a month. It seemed like a distant dream but with the help of Zee, our dream became a reality.â€ â€“Jelie & Von Verdeflor â€œI worked with several realtors but not as good as Zee Maestre. She made my dream come true as a homeowner. She was very helpful and supportive the whole time. She is not only my Realtor for life, but as well as a friend whom I can trust. Thank you for all your help Zee!â€ â€“Elaine Carter â€œZee takes the time to find the right home for us. She is patient and we can count on her to listen to our needs. When we decided on the home we wanted she was quick in making the offer and followed it up right way. She really worked hard for us in getting the home we wanted.â€ â€“Rex & Lori Sumala â€œThere are not enough words to express how we felt while Zee was working with us.

She helped our family in buying and selling our homes. She is very knowledgeable, efficient, very honest (we can trust her personally and in business). We will always recommend her to anyone who wants to own a home because she is a person who possesses all the qualifications of an HONEST REALTOR, a person with integrity.â€ â€“Nicanor & Yoly Bocalan â€œIf you want honesty and someone who ALWAYS looks out for your best interests, someone who always listens to your needs and shares her experience in helping you make good decisions, Zee is the person!

Nowadays itâ€™s hard to find someone like thatâ€¦ZEE IS THE BEST!â€ â€“Marv & Rowen Zapanta "As a realtor, Zee Maestre is INCOMPARABLE. Our experiences of previous realtors from leasing to buying, to renting are vastly different from our experience with Ms. Maestre. She had been with us through the whole process and had helped us on some tough negotiations. Her knowledge and responses to our questions comforted us during stressful occasions. Buying a house became easier with Zee at our backs and we are very grateful and blessed to have her as our realtor." â€“Daisy & Tristan Laurino â€œZee is the best. She is willing to help you all the way without reservations. She cares for our best interest and made sure we were contented in every aspect of the transaction.

Zee, you are a top-notch Realtor; we give you FIVE stars in home sales.â€ â€“Lawrence Jackson & Melody Caroll "We asked Zee's help both in the purchase of a new property and the short-sale of the old one. The process that we have to go through seemed really difficult and overwhelming at first, but with Zee's expertise, everything went well and easy. Zee is very professional, detailed, persistent and always willing to help." -Rene & Maria Ramos "Zee helped me purchased an investment property back in December 2012, I wouldn't have done it without her. It was a short sale and with only 3 weeks to close, things were moving slow, typical with the holiday. It was Zee who constantly coordinated among the bank, my loan agent, me and seller with countless emails and phone calls pushing this forward. This is the reason that I strongly recommend her service to anyone who needs help buying/selling property in Bay Area. She is a truly TOP NOTCH Realtor and I am really happy with my experience." â€“John Song â€œ...and They Lived Happily Ever After...sounds a lot like a fairytale, but with Zee Maestre, it is our reality. Never in a million years did my husband and I ever think we could find a home, let alone afford to live, in Clayton. Well, that changed when we saw, what would soon (and I mean soon) be our future home for sale in Clayton in 2009. Zee had been working with us up to that date, always making sure we were aware of the newest listings on the MLS and/or upcoming properties that might fit our familyâ€™s desires. She was so patient and always available to meet us, show us properties, or just answer questions my husband and I had. Hereâ€™s how the story goes...The very morning we saw the property listed, Zee took us to see it. We fell in love and knew we wanted to proceed. Zee took over from there and we never looked back. Our offer was submitted and up against several other offers, one being an ALL CASH offer. In the end, it was our offer that was accepted and we closed in less than a month. Zee knows what she is doing. She is honest, dedicated, and works with the utmost level of integrity and professionalism. She enlists the help of others in the field whose past business relationships have proven to be successful, as well. Zee knows the area and listens to what her clients want. I cannot say enough about Zee. There are few times in life when you come across a gifted person in their field and you grab on and never let go. Zee is one of those people. She is committed to helping others and I know that without her, we would not be calling Clayton our HOME!â€ -Rob, Michele, Daniele, and Sophia In my written testimony, I would like to nominate Ms. Zee Maestre for the Champion of the Home Award because she is the epitome of compassion and fairness. She believes in the real meaning and value of a home as a foundation and sanctuary of relationships within a family. It is not just a business for Zee. It is her passion to assist and help families to find the right house for the right price. She makes sure that her clients are happy with their house which will become their home - a home that will be a nest, a refuge, and a haven for their children and their childrenâ€™s children. She guides her buyers through the entire process of buying their home. She is a realtor who touches peopleâ€™s lives and many years thereafter. She sends emails to make us aware of changes in the market, real estate trending, tax reliefs and tax information, new laws affecting our homes and our property. Zee is not only a realtor but a teacher, a counselor, an advocate, a very ethical and honorable professional. She is the true CHAMPION of homeowners because she defends her clients against injustice and discrimination, ensures that contracts are true and binding, and fights for her clientsâ€™ interests and rights till the end. Even after her clients have moved into their new home and their families have settled down, Zee will be there behind the scenes protecting and watching us, her clients, who have become her friends. Indeed, Zee Maestre is our Champion of our HOME because she cares every single day!â€ - Jo Sunga â€œWords cannot correctly or accurately describe our experiences of success with our agent Zee Maestre. Zee has demonstrated excellence in the selling our Lafayette home and continues to maintain her impeccable honest business ethic as we enter into the purchase of our new home. Zee has been there every step of our journey. She helped Adrienne with great care and compassion as we learned from her our home value, benefits of staging and how to attract a buyer. If we had a question â€“ she would have an answer â€“ or get one as soon as possible. Zee is an extremely Pro-Active person and we could not have had the success of our sale without her. When Zee came over to discuss the options of listing our home, she was understanding of our needs. She came prepared with all options listed. We were astonished and felt extremely informed. When we decided it was a â€œGO,â€ Zee was there daily. She allowed Adrienne to work through the â€œBestâ€ way and â€œBestâ€ timing of the staging process with much care. Zee helped calm our nerves and made us comfortable with understanding everything about our incoming offers. She even thought ahead to discuss â€œour rent back!â€™ We are so happy we had Zee on our side for our sale! Our family took a vacation following our sale â€“ Zee kept us updated via email where interest rates were and what the current home market was doing! We felt that Zee was taken care of as always. When we returned Adrienne called Zee and the ball began to roll again â€“ She found us our new home which we just went into contract on! She is a â€œbulldogâ€ in negotiation! Zee took the time to be there three times at a momentâ€™s notice! We canâ€™t thank her enough! She is currently working with my daughter! - Adrienne & Russell Belmont We found Zee as professional & courteous; she returned our phone calls promptly, made herself available to us & worked with our schedule as well; she answered our questions to our satisfaction. Her overall service is GREAT! We feel comfortable referring her to a friend or family member. We feel that she had our best interest above all else!

Her efforts exceed our expectations in every aspect of the sale .Zee listens to her clients and cares for their best interest. keeping us informed about every step of the process . She is very caring ,efficient and very honest We highly recommend Zee Maestre if you are looking for a realtor !!! - Dr. Jagdeep & Dr. Kamal Sandhu We were extremely pleased with Zee's services. As first time buyers, we were clueless about the house buying process. We were thrilled to work with Zee; she gracefully walked us through the entire process and made it as smooth as possible. She patiently answered all of our questions and was extremely available (even immediately responding to several 10 pm text messages we sent her!) We had a particularly challenging situation with the seller not complying with contract agreements, and always felt that Zee had our best interests in mind as she pressured the seller to make good on his agreement. It is without hesitation that we strongly recommend her services. - Kristi Reimer & Russo Tiago BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT !!! As some of you know, Pete and I just sold our home. We hired Zee Maestre from Intero Realty as our agent. We had heard great things about Zee from some of our neighbors, and now we also want to say a few things about her. Zee is truly a professional. She is very knowledgeable, thorough, charming, assertive, and always on top of things. She will always negotiate in her client's best interest and has a great sense of the market and how to price your home to sell. And.....she brought us yummy dinner (from her husband's restaurant) on several occasions. We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Zee! - Patty & Pete Fuller Zee is definitely a top dollar realtor. She really is the best in the business. She has helped us sell and buy several of our properties through the years and we are more than happy with what she had done. She is very thorough, a great negotiator, keeps you updated every step of the way, knows your needs, very caring and overall just a wonderful person to work with. She is a highly recommended realtor. She will get you top dollar because she is a top dollar realtor. Thank you Zee for all your help. We are loving our new home. - Love, Michelle & Neil Bocalan
