"SHE IS SO CALM AND COLLECTED..."
"Moving is hard! Moving to one of the most competitive real estate markets (San Jose) is even harder. Thankfully, we had Sydney Ereno to help us navigate the very fast moving market. We had a very short time frame and we lived out of state, so we were dealing with Sydney over the phone a lot. She was always available and very responsive if we couldn't get in touch right away. When we flew to San Jose for our first house hunting trip and met her in person, we knew it was going to be a good partnership. She is so calm and collected and works very hard to educate you and set expectations. She has in-depth knowledge on all the neighborhoods in San Jose (Blossom Valley, Willow Glen, etc) and was able to steer us in the right direction for the house we wanted. The really surprising part for us was how engaged she was, not just throughout the process, but afterwards as well. When we needed recommendations on contractors, gardeners, or even a place to eat, she was our best resource. We are still in touch with her three months later! We definitely give Sydney top marks without reservation."

"SYDNEY IS THE WHOLE PACKAGE: CONSCIENTIOUS, THOROUGH, APPROACHABLE, ATTENTIVE, SAVVY, CREATIVE, HARD-WORKING AND BRILLIANT!"
"Best possible experience! My home sold in 7 days, receiving 10 offers that were all above the asking price. Sydney worked tirelessly to realize this successful outcome.
I interviewed eight agents and brokers from five firms before selecting Sydney to sell my home. She is remarkable! We first met at my neighbor's open house one year before I was ready to sell mine. From that meeting, I could see that she would be a fantastic representative for my home. Even so, I chose to thoroughly research my options. That experience made me even more certain that Sydney's approach, philosophy, knowledge and personality are exceptional.
Sydney was able to help advise me in ways to improve my house for optimal appeal. Her list of contacts and resources were incredible. Every professional that I worked with through Sydney's referral was not only impeccable, but budget-conscious. We developed an aggressive schedule to make the home sparkle in like-new condition. I was so pleased by the results!
You could not ask for a better agent. Sydney is the whole package: conscientious, thorough, approachable, attentive, savvy, creative, hard-working and brilliant. I am so glad I was able to work with her to sell my home. I recommend her very highly!"

"SHE EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS."
"Sydney is fantastic! We couldn't be happier with the job she did getting us into our new home and selling our old home. She exceeded all our expectations. We were buying contingent on the sale of our townhome, which was not yet ready for sale when we made our offer on the new house. Sydney convinced us that she could get the sale done in time--and she did. She had our townhome on the market in two weeks; got us multiple offers after 1 open house; and got us the highest price ever in the complex. It was a stressful few weeks, but Sydney did everything she could to ease our stress--from finding us packers and painters to dealing with lendors to keeping us calm with her confidence and know-how. She made a schedule; made sure we met all our benchmarks; and kept on top of every detail. Even after both sales went through, she continued to help with everything from tracking down lost mail to arranging repairs on our new house. Without hesitation, we would recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling the Bay Area. She is THE realtor to go to."

"TOOK THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW US AS PEOPLE AND HELPED TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WAS PERFECT FOR US. THAT REALLY MEANT A LOT!"
"My experience with the real estate market is limited, but I can't imagine that agents get any better than Sydney! My husband and I started looking for our first home in September 2012. The market was starting to go crazy. We had friends who had been on the market for a while and ended up with horror stories before they finally had an offer accepted. Limited inventory and multiple (often cash) offers on every property. We were expecting the same bad experience, and had fully come to terms that we were in the search for the long haul.
Our mortgage broker referred us to Sydney. We met with her and I was immediately impressed with how she treated us. As first-time homebuyers, we had tons of (probably ridiculous) questions. Sydney took her time and answered all of our questions and then some. She was always there to answer our questions or to show various properties we thought we would like, and she maintained patience and an honest, no-pressure attitude. She really took the time to get to know us as people and helped to find something that was perfect for us. That really meant a lot.
I would absolutely refer my friends, family and colleagues to Sydney.
PS, After just a few weeks of searching, our first offer was accepted and we became homeowners in October 2012! We will always be grateful for all Sydney did for us."

"SHE WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR US WHEN WE NEEDED HER FOR QUESTIONS..."
"My husband and I recently used Sydney to both sell our home in the Rose Garden and help us purchase a new home in Willow Glen. Not only did she have our house sold in a week after only 1 open house she managed to use her business connections to grab up a pocket listing for us and help us purchase a house off market in an extremely competitive market without any bidding wars. She was always available for us when we needed her for questions and never made us feel like we were being pressured- she made it clear to us that she understands the experience of buying a house is an emotional one and huge decision and that we were free to work at our own pace and to not feel pressured at all. She is kind and caring and it shows in her relationships will all of the wonderful people we've worked with throughout this normally stressful experience.
If you're looking to sell or ready to buy- call Sydney!"

"WE FELT VERY SECURE IN HAVING HER AS OUR AGENT."
"Sydney was first introduced me as someone who "takes customer service to a whole new level" and I can personally attest to this. Sydney worked with us on 2 simultaneous transactions, both of which went off without a hitch. She is a master strategist, a stickler for details and acted as an advocate for us. She has a high degree of integrity and her communication and availability is absolutely unparalleled. She is conscientious and competitive, and we felt very secure in having her as our agent. There were zero errors. Over the past 6 months, we watched as Sydney successfully sold three Willow Glen Properties in less than one week. She is an up-and coming expert in the Willow Glen neighborhood and we highly recommend her to anyone in need of a listing agent, as well as to potential buyers since she is aware of pocket listings and inventory that may not be available to the general public. Sydney also helped us with excellent referrals (staging companies, locksmiths, painters, etc.) and made our move seamless so that we could focus on more important matters. Thank you Sydney, we will gladly refer you not just to our friends, but to our clients who may be dividing property and selling residential properties in Santa Clara."

"PROVIDING SMOOTH SUCCESSFUL SALES..."
"Sydney is such a professional and always goes above and beyond for her clients. We are constantly updated with her in depth knowledge of the Willow Glen marketplace. Our team is impressed daily by her ability to get the maximum sales price possible in all markets. We would highly recommend her in providing smooth successful sales."

"YOU'LL GET TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR CURRENT HOUSE, YOU'LL MAKE AN OFFER THAT WILL BE JUST RIGHT FOR THE HOUSE YOU WANT, AND YOU'LL GET THE HARDEST WORKING AGENT THERE IS!"
"Sydney has to be the best realtor in the South Bay. She had to do a lot of hand-holding with us, and she never batted an eye. The bottom line on Sydney goes something like this: we are very happy with the sale of our old house and thrilled with the purchase of our new one. Even after the sale of both properties was closed, Sydney was still working to support us while we moved, meeting contractors and such at our new house while we were at work. You'll get top dollar for your current house, you'll make an offer that will be just right for the house you want, and you'll get the hardest working agent there is. (That's pretty good!)"
