"I was put in contact with Shalini earlier in January of 2017. We were looking for an office property that could accommodate 10 people - 20 people, along with a few other intricacies. Easy to deal with, but our budget made it seem other wise. 

From the get go Shalini, was able to instantly parse through our requirements, took them without blinking and set to work. Unlike other brokers (and we had gone through this process a year earlier) Shalini focused on only showing us properties that fit all of our needs, with minor modifications needed, which she to her credit was able to use well when it came to negotiating terms. I'm pleased to say that in under a week she showed me a few properties all of which would have served us well. 

Her communication was prompt and to the point. She seemed to have good relationships with the listing brokers / building agents, and was quick to understand and point out issues we would have with places. She was excellent in filtering out the noise and showing us places that fit the bill. At no point did we feel like we were on extensive tours that were exhausting. "

"I worked with Shalini to find a space for a restaurant in SOMA. I can't say enough about the level of professionalism that she brought through the entire process. She is a thoughtful realtor who took great care to understand our needs and worked relentlessly to find us the right space. She was very attentive to timelines and helped us stay on track. Commercial space scouting can be a long laborious process, and Shalini was able to keep the seller's side engaged through the process, which really helped us secure the deal. It was such a pleasure working with her, and I am sure we will work together on future professional and personal real estate needs."

"I worked with Shalini to start my home buying process and she truly is as good as it gets! Her level of professionalism is one to be marveled by many. Shalini was willing to answer every question I had and even made sure there were no mistakes on the paperwork. There was a time I had missed a signature and of course Shalini noticed my mistake. If you are searching for a relator who will make you feel comfort and yield professional guidance, then look no further!"

"Moving can be such a stressful experience, but Doug was invaluable in finding the right place for me based on my preferences, and ultimately taking all the hassle out of the apartment hunt. We had a preliminary discussion about my budget, living habits and preferred neighborhoods, and he assembled 3 or 4 places in SoMa for me to check out. Ultimately, I chose one of the initial places he selected, which goes to show he has a keen sense on that front. Couldn't be happier with his services. Thanks, Doug!

"Doug and Shalini at BLG properties are awesome to work with. We recently bought a home in Noe Valley, San Francisco and Shalini was our agent. Shalini is extremely diligent and helped us plan our offer with specifics that no other broker/agent we have worked with in the past. As the escrow progressed, she made sure that we were on top of our paperwork and worked with our loan agent to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction. Great Job team BLG!"

"Shalini was referred by a friend who raved about her - and all those raves were true. She is simply a rock star. Instant response, deep insight, keen awareness, and wrapped into a friendly demeanor and wonderful smile. Many agents talk - Shalini listens. And then performs. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking real estate services."

"When I sold my vacation home at Lake Tahoe, Doug was the first person I called because I knew he would shoot me straight and help me get top dollar for my property. He has excellent resources, is very smart and a great negotiator. When the time comes, I will ask him to help me sell my residence in Sonoma."

"What impressed me about Doug is not just his knowledge of my local real estate market (superior, by all accounts) -- it's the focus he places on understanding the needs of his clients and aligning them with best-fit properties. He is proactive, patient and efficient in his approach, removing the stress from the home-buying process. Thank you, Doug, for your advice, counsel and execution!"

"I was recently on a hunt to find my dream apartment in SOMA.  Doug is a rockstar expert in the area.  He has great contacts at the various buildings.  He was constantly on top of units that became available, joined me on viewing appointments, and asked all the right questions that I didn't think to ask.  He made himself available when needed, was always very responsive, and I found his guidance invaluable.  Next time I am house hunting in SF Doug will be my first phone call."

"We worked with Doug to close out our property in Sonoma County, and could not have been more satisfied with his service! Doug had outstanding persistence throughout the process, constantly following up with us, and also our loan processor, the title company, and the seller agent. He was also able to consistently provide us with recommendations for other various service providers that we needed during the process, and always answered our questions promptly and with detail. As soon as we had Doug on board we knew we were in good hands, and we ultimately went through the entire home buying process with a hitch. Thank you Doug!!"
