THE BUZZ ON CJ...
“Cj Spielman is an exceptional real estate professional with a seasoned competency in every aspect of the business of buying and selling houses. What is stand-out about her is that she is wholeheartedly interested in people and families finding their homes in a world of shifting market values, global and local economic disruptions, and school systems for the children. The buying/ selling process is riddled with human emotions, and Cj brings her professional background in conflict resolution to every table, making certain that the conversation with her clients, their families, and involved commercial parties are facilitated in a way that serves her clients’ best interests. Even in the case of changing family dynamics that involved divorce and a short sale back in the day, Cj managed to keep everybody talking and able to be in the same room, moving forward with her skillful means. When everyone else after 2008 went for a career change in the real estate industry, Cj worked harder! She has grit, a tenacity and passion for doing what she does, along with solid integrity. Not only that, she’s a lot of fun! And humor - when you’re dealing with real estate and real money -- can be the thing that takes everyone happily across the threshold, whether they’re coming or going.”

“Cj helped my wife and I find our first home. Cj was patient, understanding and always made herself available to answer our 8462 ‘first time home buyer’ questions. She took the time and effort to understand our needs and made sure we were making the right decision. Cj was able to close the house in 3 days with inspection and loan approval. Cj has great knowledge of the local market. Thank you Cj for being a part of the 2 months of madness with us and making home buying less stressful.”

“Cj did a great job selling 64 Rudnick, a 3 bedroom home located in Novato. It was not easy as she had to deal with an absentee owner who was unreachable, and a relative with a power of attorney to negotiate the sale. Her experience in the area and her overall professionalism made the transaction as easy as it could be. She was on top of everything. Her assistance lining up renovation providers was also instrumental in realizing the proper value from the transaction. Her marketing plan, pre-sale inspection suggestions, pricing strategy, and choice of stager were impeccable. She also assisted in managing some of the final details of the renovation for me. Her marketing plan was just right for the local conditions and we were in escrow in eight days from listing. As the relative with power of attorney working directly with Cj , I wholeheartedly recommend her for your real estate needs.”

“We are very grateful that we went with Cj Spielman when selling our home - she really knows her stuff and gave excellent advice on timing, staging and pricing. I confess to being a little dubious about spending money on painting and staging, but I am now a convert – we had offers over our asking price within one week of listing the house. A similar house in the neighborhood (which has not been staged) was on the market a week before ours and did not get an offer until several weeks after ours sold - Cj s advice about staging was spot on! All in all, I can’t imagine how the process could have gone any better.”
~ Peter B.
“As well as being a great agent, in both selling and buying, she does an outstanding job in staging a house. She went above and beyond in the open house and had other agents congratulate her in the showing! I would use her again and have referred her to friends who agree she is a great person to work with!”
~ Andrea B.
“Cj has proven to be an extremely intuitive and knowledgeable person. She has a unique balance of heart and head, yet her pragmatism overrides sentiment ! Her awareness of the emotional elements and stress in moving made the trauma of selling my family home much less intense . I felt supported by her throughout my experience ,and Cj went above and beyond to facilitate the flow whenever she was able , whilst securing the best financial deals she could get for me. I recommend her unreservedly!”
~ Deborah D.
“I would like to recommend Cj Spielman as of the best real estate agent I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. She not only has a very engaging personality, but she provides her clients with an extensive knowledge of the market, an impressive array of ideas to help present a property at its fullest potential, and multiple contacts to assist with property improvement including contractors, plumbers, electricians and all the ancillary staff necessary to make a strong sale. My siblings and I have already completed the sale of three properties with her help and plan to sell two more properties when the opportunity presents itself. I would recommend Cj with the utmost confidence to anyone buying or selling a property in the Bay Area.”

“We feel so fortunate to have had Cj represent the sale of our mom’s estate, which consisted of her home and 2 rental homes within a compound. I would give Cj a “10” rating. She was invaluable to us with her care and sensitivity which helped ease us through this difficult transition. She truly became part of our family. Cj is a committed professional, with a depth of knowledge and keen understanding of the market. Through her expert advice and sharp attention to detail, within a few days of our listing, we had a buyer and closed within 15 days. This isn’t the only reason why Cj is “The Best.” Her integrity, responsiveness, exceptional personal service and loyalty, made the process seamless and smooth. I have a new appreciation for the dedication it takes to be an exceptional Realtor, as exemplified by Cj. She continues to go above and beyond her duties in helping us remodel our rental. This is just the beginning of our professional relationship with her. You are awesome Cj and we are so grateful for all you did to support us and to have had you with us through -out this whole process!”
~ Kathy K.
“ CJ has helped us tremendously with two of our properties, one, a commercial sale, the other a residential income rental. Not only does she have a quite a large number of contacts (painters, cleaners etc. at great rates), she is also an expert at staging - she has a good sense of style. CJ is quite the “people person” as she is very communicative and always on top of the situation in a timely manner, which is key real estate transactions. I can think of no area where she could improve her performance. She has been the consummate professional. You would be lucky to have her work for your end of any real estate transaction.”
~ Debra E.
“ I have worked with many real estate agents over the years and CJ was by far the best I have ever encountered. She is an expert in the field of real estate. CJ offers superior marketing strategies, is professionally gifted in all aspects of real estate and gave immediate care throughout to make it a most useful , empathic and positive experience. She was outstanding!”
