To facilitate the purchase of my first home, I could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Todd Montgomery.
From day one Todd was friendly, professional and knowledgeable about SF’s neighborhoods and housing market. During our conversations he really honed in on my housing priorities – location, low maintenance, good resale value – and was honest with me about what I could afford and where I should invest more of my budget. He gave me advice about my wish list items that I realize now as a homeowner was spot on.
Since then Todd’s work has exceeded my expectations. At first the whole home buying process was incredibly frustrating particularly since I live down in LA and work long hours including nights and weekends. Todd stepped in and communicated with the development office, mortgage lender and escrow company on my behalf. He fought for me when things were not progressing on schedule and made himself available at all times to answer my questions or field them to people who could. He even met with me to read through and explain to me all the developer’s terms and conditions (almost 30 documents!). And now that we’ve closed escrow he’s helping me pick out fixtures and appliances.
All in all, Todd is definitely someone you need in your corner when you’re buying a home: knowledgeable, well connected and respected in the industry, honest, responsive and willing to go above and beyond for his clients. Todd is the best, and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone doing anything real estate-related in the Bay Area.
