Danielle is truly a pro. She knows the market, has a fantastic team behind her, is professional yet approachable, is respected by the real estate community (which is incredibly important when buying/selling!) and works diligently on her clients behalf. In fact, we didn't see half of the work she was actually doing -- she just made everything happen and didn't make it a burden on us at all. It is easy to trust her as she exudes confidence and you just have a feeling that she knows what she is doing, and that you are in the right hands. We couldn't have asked for a better agent or set of results. We would recommend her over and over again and truly thank her and the Climb team for all their time and effort.

Danielle and her team are excellent. I was dealing with cross country move and had to deal with buying and selling at the same time. Danielle is definitely the best broker I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgable from our initial consultation to the end. We polished up the unit with minimum cost to make my unit stand out from others. Once we got into contract, unlike other agents, she is very attentive and making sure the deal will close following the timeline. She even prepared a list of references, reminders for her clients to make sure the transition will be as smooth as possible. Danielle makes it happened and my unit is sold less then 2 months.

Danielle and Tanya are excellent. I can't even put into words how easy they made this entire experience, especially for someone like me, who was clueless about the entire homebuying process. While I worked primarily with Tanya (who I'm very grateful to), Danielle was very much involved and kept in touch with me throughout the process. From our first meeting to the day I received my keys, Tanya was always there to answer my questions and keep me updated as to how things were progressing. One of my biggest concerns in the beginning was that searching for a home would interfere with my work schedule, but Tanya was very flexible and still managed to attend every open house and inspection with me. I whole-heartedly recommend these guys for anyone looking for a home, and today I couldn't be happier with my new condo. Thanks!

From start to finish, Danielle and her team made the home-buying process as comprehensible, above-board, and pillow-cushioned as I imagine possible, and my girlfriend and I considered ourselves fortunate to have worked with her. The online reviews are deadly accurate: this is full-service real estate agentry here, and not only did we end up with a house, we felt absolutely taken care of the while.

I felt comfortable with Danielle the moment that I met her. She??s utterly professional, yet human ?? approachable, relatable. As well, I found her to be knowledgeable, genuinely friendly, and understanding. In the weeks, then months, that passed, I learned that she never stops working on behalf of her clients. As was true for others who??ve posted positive reviews to this site, we moved through the housing inventory with Danielle??s partner, Tanya Dzhibrailova, who herself deserves a novel-length recommendation skywritten above the Bay. Danielle would check in on us regularly, though not cloyingly, and whenever I had a new question, or the same old question densely restated in different terms, she would respond immediately and with more patience and cheer than I thought possible. Seriously: her response time can be measured with a micrometer. And when it came time for us to offer on a house, and then to close on it, the processes were as stress-free as they could be. I??d heard from my home-owning friends that the paperwork can be crippling, but Danielle, Tanya, and Cici somehow made everything bite-sized, taking the time to walk us through everything without rushing us. I really couldn??t tell when it was all over, because it felt as if it had been too simple.

There were also surprising little touches along the way, little things that we didn??t expect but whose practicality and cleverness made us smile. Suffice it to say, I cannot speak highly enough of her, and when it comes time for us to go house hunting again, she??ll be the first one to know. Thanks, Danielle!

So I finally decided to bite the bullet and jump into the real estate market - in SF no less! Just how to do this? I was fairly certain that I ultimately find out that it was painful and arduous...that is until my girlfriend and I wandered into Daniel's office one day.

What a fantastic experience from start to finish. Daniel met with us and painted a realistic picture of San Francisco real estate in the various neighborhoods that we liked. She asked us a number of questions about why we were in the market to buy and - the best part is - she actually listened to our answers!

She told us to immediately check-out a place that had just been listed in Nob Hill - which met our specifications to a "T". We loved the place and (fast-forward a bit) we now own it! Better yet, it feels like the process was almost that easy. I am really truly amazed by how easy it was to get answers to all of our questions through-out the process of buying our first house. I highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is in the market for a new house.

Danielle helped us sell our single family home in a tough market for sellers. Her extensive network and marketing savvy allowed us to get more than 50 agents to tour the house before it was listed on the public market, ultimately leading to a fast and solid offer from a qualified buyer. She negotiated a counteroffer that improved the offer and allowed us to sell the house ahead of schedule (so that we were in a better position to buy our next house). Although Danielle prepared us well for possible bumps in the road, the transaction was smooth and organized, and was completed without a hitch. Danielle and Cici are easy to work with, very responsive, and listened and understood our needs throughout the process. We highly recommend Danielle!

Working with Danielle and Tanya really took the stress and pain out of my house-hunt. I'm a first time homeowner, with a very small budget for the Bay Area, and a lot of specific requirements in a home. They didn't care about the small budget, and were happy to locate and research every property in my price range to see if it had what I needed. I ended up finding a beautiful home, at a great price, and getting my keys less than three months after we started working together!

I did most of my direct house hunting with Tanya, but Danielle followed our progress every step of the way, checking in with me frequently, and her emails full of information were so helpful, especially when it came time to go into escrow. Tanya was a fierce negotiator for me, and due to her advice and guidance on creating an attractive offer, I won out over two other offers that were higher than mine!

I cannot recommend this team highly enough. They were both always available for questions, even as we hunted for houses over the holidays, and worked with my unusual schedule. Interview them, like I did, and you'll know right away that you've found the right team for you!

A friend of mine, who bought her first home with Danielle, highly recommended her. My friend, whose father is in real estate as well, felt that Danielle took extra care and far exceeded her expectations. So I began the hunt for a home in aug 2009, with Danielle by my side guiding me through the process. I wasn't ready to buy and didn't buy, however, until sept 2010, due to both career and personal interruptions. Danielle followed me through the entire process, and got to know me well enough to make a great recommendation for me, which was the beautiful home that I bought. My first home is such a great fit, and I am so grateful to Danielle for leading me to it!
What impressed me most about working with Danielle, was the degree of attention, care, promptness, and sheer professionalism she demonstrated throughout the process. She was constant in her communication and in the quality of her communications with me. She explained things in great detail, which was very important to me as a first time home buyer, and was always, always reliable. All this so far would have been enough for me to have enthusiastically worked with Danielle again for the next home or to recommend her to friends. But Danielle goes further to preemptively give you recommendations, information, updates, and referrals/contacts during and AFTER the first time home-buying process. Danielle truly goes beyond the extra mile! I am so grateful for having the luck to have worked with her!

I just closed an amazing purchase of a 2 unit building in San Francisco on an FHA loan with only 3.5% down.
Danielle and her team , in particular Tanya were very good advice on how to get in escrow, even with an offer that might not seem very attractive to sellers in a very competitive market.
The combination of my very specific requirements and their expertise resulted in a smooth purchase beyond my expectations.

I have been in touch with Danielle for several years discussing my interest in real estate. She has taken the time and attention to discuss my situation and what I was in a position to do. I was recently, finally, in a position to buy. Danielle and her partner Tanya (mostly worked with Tanya) were/are fantastic. They were easy to reach and helped me with every question and concern. They showed up to every location that I had an interest in and gave me their honest opinion about each property (pros and cons, was it priced right? how much work did it realistically need? thoughts on ease or difficulty to re-sell, rental property, etc...) They have an extensive list of referrals of great people to work on my property. I still have questions come up, being a new property owner...they get right back to me and are so helpful! I have felt so taken care of the whole time. They really put in a lot of work! I didn't have a ton of money to work with, but they helped me get my foot in the door of real estate and establish an ongoing plan for growth. I never felt pressured by them. I always felt like they had my best interest in mind! I could not recommend anyone more highly!!! Thanks again Tanya and Danielle!!!!

Danielle, Tanya and Cici were excellent. This was my first purchase and they really helped me navigate all the tricky waters. I could not have done it without them.

Working with them was a really great experience all the way from the first meeting where they helped me determine my goals to the closing. I will definitely work with them again when I look for my next home in the future.

I visited Danielle in 2009 to get a sense of the market and help me determine if I was in the right ??mind frame?? to begin my next life chapter and become a home buyer. I was referred to Danielle from friends and after speaking with her, was grateful that the introduction was made. She was attentive and very knowledgeable about the SF market. We discussed various scenarios and after meeting with a mortgage broker, decided it wasn??t the time to pursue home buying.

Over the next year, Danielle kept in touch but did not pressure me into a decision I wasn??t ready for ?? a quality I appreciated most as I??ve heard horror stories of realtors pushing clients through a hard sale. Fast forward one year ?? I connected with Danielle again when I was more prepared to handle this venture.

Like not time passed, Danielle was welcoming and excited to get back to work and find me my first home. This time she had help from her new partner, Tanya. It only took me a couple of days until I walked into the 2-bedroom flat in Hayes Valley that I knew I wanted to buy. From that moment on, Tanya and Danielle shifted gears and were determined to get me through the process with little worries or pressures. They listened to my concerns and were committed from beginning till end. Tanya worked her negotiating skills and managed to get my bid accepted, hassle free. Always available to take a call, the pair (and their behind-the-scenes team) were very organized and walked me through every document I had to sign (and there are a lot!) explaining exactly what I was signing and assuring me that they put in every contingency into the contract as possible ?? so I had many opportunities to walk away without losing money if the deal began to go sour. Thankfully we got through inspections with a few bumps and road hazards that were giving me a headache but Tanya easily ironed out.

Six weeks later and I had a new jingle in my pocket! Even after we closed, Tanya and Danielle provided advice on painters, wood floor specialists and other handymen that have all worked out great! Even today, if I am looking for a contractor, electrician, or other specialist ?? Danielle and Tanya are the ones I turn to first, and they still respond super fast! Great service, professionalism and ease ?? I couldn??t have been happier with other realtors!

I found Danielle online and when I was ready to purchase a house she referred me to her business partner, Tanya. I was looking for a straightforward no-nonsense realtor who could tell me if a house had structural problems, was overpriced, and give me realistic expectations about what it would cost to remodel a particular space. I told Tanya what kind of space I needed and after one week of looking, she helped us write an offer on a house. Tanya knew everything about every house on the market in the area where we wanted to buy. She took care of all the details, paperwork, scheduling inspections . . . sometimes it didn't even feel like I was buying a house. I kept expecting some kind of glitch to happen, but it never did. I did not work with Danielle directly, but Danielle kept in contact on a regular basis to check in and see how things were going. Tanya and Danielle are professional, efficient, and super easy to work with.

Our experience with Danielle has been fantastic. From the start she was professional, attentive and eager to have everything be perfect. We just purchased our first condominium and could not be more pleased with the process. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Danielle and her team at Zephyr Real Estate.

In 2009, we set a goal as a family to finally leave the ranks of the renters and buy a home. After four months with our first realtor, we realized that we needed to find someone with the experience and creativity necessary to find us a home in San Francisco. We found Danielle, and within two months we had closed escrow and moved into our new house.

Danielle applied her incredible knowledge, experience and creativity to our search for a home. She was able to recommend properties that we had not considered based on the needs we articulated, our price range and the still very competitive market in the City. We ended up buying a house she found and suggested we view.

Danielle and her team were fantastic. She provided mortgage broker recommendations, market research, and neighborhood listings and recommendations. She uses technology to provide an efficient, time-saving process for her customers. We signed documents online and transmitted a lot of information by email. As time is of the essence in a competitive market, it's very important not to be tied to a FAX machine or have to show up in person for every signing.

No only did we have all the tools we needed to make a decision about where to buy, but we got a huge amount of support. From the first offer on which we were outbid to the delays with the bank while in escrow, she was there with sound advice and pep talks. We couldn't have done it without her.

When my husband and I decided to buy a home in San Francisco, the recent down-market was just beginning to pick up steam. By the time we had secured financing and were ready to start looking with a Realtor, the market was becoming very competitive once again.

When we began working together Danielle took a lot of time to get to know our family and find out exactly what we wanted/needed in a home. She helped us to narrow our focus and stick to our budget.

When the market began to heat up and we found ourselves competing against a lot of other buyers, she strategized. Danielle was able to get us in to see a new house on the market that fit our needs before any other buyers were able to see it. We are now moving into that home and could not be happier.

Danielle was there for us through the entire process right through to the close. When we had a last minute delay with our lender, she was there to make sure everything detail was taken care of. She is simply the best.

If you are serious about buying a home in SF and are ready to take the steps necessary to make that dream a reality, then Danielle is the person to call.

Selling (or buying) a house is an adventure filled with excitement, as well as anxiety. After 17 years of owning a home in SF, our first, we wanted an agent that would help lead us, as well as partner with us, on this see-saw endeavor.

Even though Danielle had smartly marketed to us for over a year, we interviewed several agents. For us, it was cost-of-entry selection criteria that our listing agent knew the neighborhood, the market, the potential and the process. Clearly, Danielle, had the credentials and capabilities to deliver on these elements. However, we were looking for that ??something extra? ?? Fresh thinking, determination, flexibility, and a strong dash of reality ?? And, Danielle not only fit this extended profile perfectly, she exceeded it.

The changeable and fast-moving SF market realities proved to be a challenge to some of our long-held our perceptions, yet Danielle offered up an honest diagnosis while respecting our wishes. Her suggestions about sprucing the place up and making some improvements were spot on. She understood our vision and honored our desires. It was a tough balancing, but she over-delivered.

Throughout the relationship, from first visit through close of escrow, Danielle and her team regularly communicated, updated and were responsive. We were never in the dark or anxious about the next steps. Her positive outlook kept us upbeat and on the right track. Thanks Danielle!

We would highly recommend her without reservation!

I would say different people expect different approaches from a realtor. We wanted someone who

1. Would understand we were serious about selling in one district and moving into a district that wasn't did so hard by the slowdown
2. Would understand we were willing to do that was needed for a fast sale. Time was not on our side for some reasons I wont go into here
3. Would not give us BS and would be realistic + honest about our situation

We got all of the above. One thing I appreciated was how Danielle lead us to realise our own mistake early on. We did not do enough homework on the area we wanted to move to and we were underestimating the prices of houses that we would consider by around 80k. Danielle told us that we were under but was patient enough to make sure we came to this conclusion ourselves when we saw how far our money would go.

At all times we got realistic advice. We were not given inflated ideas about where we stood (I am sure a lot of realtors are not like that). Working with Danielle we were able to sell our old house very quickly. We got the price we were expecting and in today's climate that is a big deal.

In September of last year I took a job in a town about three hours drive from San Francisco...tried to do the back and forth thing, but by December it was obvious: if I was going to keep the job, which I loved, my husband and I needed to relocate. This was a life changing decision in and of itself, but complicated by the fact that we were facing either renting out our San Francisco home (even though neither of us wanted to be landlords) or selling it in what was perhaps the worst market for sellers in decades...

We decided to sell, but were very apprehensive. Next step was to find a really good Realtor, as we were going to need a whole lot of help to make our decision happen! I went on the internet, and after a bit of research came up with several names, including Danielle's.

Of the several realtors we interviewed, Danielle was clearly the best prepared: she came to our first interview with personalized information about the market, comparable prices for houses like ours, and more. The other realtors we interviewed were nice, but not even a tenth as prepared! Indeed, one of the other realtors asked my husband and me how much we??d like to get for our home, and I remember thinking to myself, 'well, of course I'd LIKE to get a million dollars, but those days are gone: I was hoping you'd tell me what you think it is worth and why'. Danielle did give us her recommendation as to listing price, and most importantly, the reasons for the recommendation (with plenty of research and information to back it up): It was then that I knew: Danielle was the right choice for us!

We moved out in January, and then took a few weeks to paint, re-do the floors, and get the house 'spiffed up' for sale. We told Danielle that we were on a budget, and she gave excellent advice about where to spend money and where not to during the preparation process, and then went the extra mile to get us bids from contractors within our budget. She and her team (especially her very capable assistant Cici English) did an excellent job of managing the work and making sure that everything was done right; a very important role since it was tough to deal with while living several hours away. The end results were very impressive: hubby wistfully wished that someone could do a similar makeover for him personally!

Bottom line: we listed the house in mid-February of 2009, and within about a week we had two offers, both for over asking! The offer we accepted came in on my birthday; talk about a wonderful birthday present! In my opinion, Danielle nailed the suggested listing price. Even in my daydreams, I didn??t imagine the process going as smoothly as it did.

I cannot stress enough the difference that Danielle??s attention to detail, computer savyness, assertiveness in representing our interests, knowledge of the overall market and micro-markets in San Francisco, and marketing strategies made in the sale of our home. Moreover, she and Cici both kept us calm during the inevitable bumps in the road (though, to be honest, even the bumps seemed very minor thanks to their professional demeanor).

We are now only a few days from closing escrow in SF, and in the process of buying a home here in our new town. We love our new home-to-be, but do have one regret: we wish it wasn??t too far away to make it practical for Danielle to be our realtor here as well. Our new realtor is doing a fine job, but every once in a while hubby and I look at each other and sigh, ?? XXX (Insert New Realtor??s Name Here) is ok, but she is no Danielle?. I think ??He or she is a Danielle? may become our new code words for ??He or she is the best?.

When I say Danielle is the BEST, I mean it! I give her my absolute highest recommendation, and wouldn??t dream of using any team but hers for a SF Bay Area real estate transaction.

It's not easy to describe in just a few paragraphs what a great real estate agent Danielle is. I have very high standards for professionalism and mastery of one's own domain and Danielle's performance has been spotless.

A few months ago, based on our own instincts as well as all the pundits forecasting a rare "buyer's market" in San Francisco, my fiancee and I decided to look and see if we could pull off our dream of homeownership in San Francisco. Having already done some reading about buying homes, it was clear to me how crucial working with the right real estate agent in all of this is. I wanted to find someone who is not only an expert in San Francisco real estate, but also youthful and well versed in modern technologies and would be easy and fun to work with. I came across Danielle through her blog, her website, her answers on Trulia, and other online reviews about her and was immediately impressed with her knowledge and enthusiasm.

Danielle was our trusted partner, from the very first consultation (to which she showed up with several binders of prepared material tailored to our situation) to recommending our excellent mortgage officer, to sending us two movie tickets when it seemed like we could use them, to the day we were holding the keys to our first home in our hands (along with -- of course! -- more nice and thoughtful gifts which I won't give away to her current and future clients).

We found our favorite property pretty early on, after seeing it during an open house. Danielle still took us to tour several others to see a good sample of what's available and in our range right now, but in the end we made an offer on our favorite house. We trusted Danielle's instincts and offered quite significantly below asking. She was right: our offer was accepted. The escrow process was dogged by difficulties caused by a seller who seemed bent on skimping on his responsibilities. This would be a recipe for a disaster, unless you have a great agent such as Danielle. Especially listening to some of our friends' stories about their RE agents, I shudder to think how incredibly different it all could have turned out. We could be living in a house that we bought at a higher price, and dealing with a leaky roof, cracked furnace, and last-minute changes made without permit. Or, in no house at all! But Danielle cut through all the crap and she fearlessly negotiated great deals for us, making sure our seller did everything he was supposed to do, the way he was supposed to (and we know, he tried not to!). Rest assured that with Danielle on your side, nobody is going to pull a fast one on you. Those friends I mentioned, have all meanwhile been supplied with Danielle's contact information, btw. :)

Danielle clearly has a passion for her job. Yet, equally importantly, beneath all this enthusiasm and love for real estate is a consummate professional and a tough (but fair) negotiator. Trust me, I speak from experience when I say that when the contents of the sewage pipe in your dream home hit the fan, you want Danielle on your team. She was truly an expert guide, comfortably ahead of every other player in the transaction, carefully guiding the process to its successful completion. Her communication was excellent. She educated us, anticipated obstacles and worries before we saw them, and also made us think about things we wouldn't have thought of otherwise, but are important nevertheless -- such as estate planning, for instance. Some crucial things were a breeze with her: when the time for inspections came, she already had her (very competent and thorough) inspectors lined up and out on the property with us within 48 hours. Still, during the entire process, she also truly made us feel like we were the ones in control. To be able to do all this is a very rare talent and also requires a lot of skill. Danielle's assistant Cici has been also very helpful and contributed to our success.

Kathleen and I highly recommend Danielle, and we know that we have found our real estate guide for life!

Dear Danielle,
Thank you for selling our home in San Francisco. Choosing an agent online can be difficult and I was very apprehensive about doing it that way. I can't tell you how happy we all are that we found you. Your information and professionalism throughout the whole process was crucial and we can't thank you enough. You not only got the job done in this market, you got us for MORE than we were asking! You are really a WOW!!!!

Thanks again,
C. Roberts

Our daughter selected Danielle Lazier to be her agent when she decided to sell her condominium located on lower Nob Hill in San Francisco. We met Danielle because my husband had volunteered to help get everything in tiptop order for selling. The first thing we noticed was that Danielle had a good eye for what needed to be done such as painting, kitchen reconfiguration, floor refinishing, and she quickly went over those suggestions with us. She set a time line for completion to which we agreed.

The second thing we observed was Danielle??s quick response time to any questions or concerns we had. She was always thorough with her information. She kept us informed as to what the San Francisco requirements were when working with contractors, and was always calm and diplomatic when any controversy came up among the various inspectors and contractors.

Danielle really seems to know the real estate market in San Francisco, and is very good at communicating that information to both the buyer and the seller. Because of all of the reasons mentioned, the condo was only on the market 10 days before a full offer came in, and the sale was completed in about a month. In this market I would say that is really something!! We would highly recommend Danielle as your agent if you are either buying or selling a property.

Danielle was AMAZING. Highly highly recommend!! We met her on a Thursday, saw places on the following Tuesday, and made an offer that night. We weren't expecting things to move that quickly as my husband and I are both first time home buyers and the process is a little scary.

Then the frustrations of the current economy hit and we had to deal with a number of banks, trying to get our mortgage and mortgage insurance figured out. Danielle was patient and understanding the entire time. She did an excellent job of keeping us informed about what was happening and what we could expect as next steps.

Home buying is a HUGE decision, especially in San Francisco where the cost of homes are out of control. But we were so relaxed having Danielle in our corner. We couldn't have imagined going through another real estate agent... nothing but good things to say here.

Hate to keep repeating what others have said already, but Danielle knows her stuff.

She sold our house for us in June-July of 2008. We initially contacted her a year prior, then took the interceding time to find our new place before putting our house in SF on the market. Still, she was very low pressure, not pushing us to get our place on the market, and she kept in contact periodically to see how we were coming on our own house hunt.

Once we were ready to list our house, she jumped to the task, creating a timeline for how things would progress once we were out, offering to-do lists and friendly nudges to keep us on track, arranged for a handyman to come in to take care of any blemishes in the property, and helped us find a painter as well as our moving company. She also was very clear about mapping out her strategy for selling the house, how it should be priced, and when to put it on the market.

After we moved out we were a little apprehensive as we were several hundred miles away, but Danielle took charge of getting the place ready, having it staged, and arranging for some last-minute repairs that cropped up. Also, she was very proactive about keeping us informed as to what was going on, and answered all of our calls promptly.

Well, long story short, she nailed it. Things worked just as she said they would. We had a ton of interest, both on broker tour and when the house was open to the public, and many showings in between. Thanks to her savvy, we got multiple offers (which in this market is no longer the norm that it was several years ago) and were able to massage two of them to sweeten the pot. We ended up accepting one from a very well qualified buyer that was significantly over our asking price. Escrow went without a hitch, and we closed slightly more than a month after the place first went on the market. We were thrilled and are very happy we went with her as our representative.

Being a first time home buyer is always such a daunting but incredibly exciting experience. Her experience and knowledge really helped us find our perfect home in a matter of weeks!!!

She really goes the extra mile - no request was ever too much and she always made herself available ?? phone, email, in person. We highly recommend Danielle and will certainly use her the next time around.

Danielle came recommended to us by some good friends and we weren't disappointed! It was our first time buying a house and she provided priceless guidance, understanding and support. We felt like we were in good hands every step of the way. She helped us keep our focus to achieve our goal of owning our first home. We felt she always had our best interests at heart when negotiating on our behalf.

Although it seems crazy to think of it right now having just bought our home, we will absolutely come to her when and if we sell our home in the future. We have already recommended her to our friends and will happily continue to recommend her services.

Aside from being a savvy expert in the field, Danielle feels like a friend. She's easy to get along with, very personable and trustworthy.

Danielle represented us on both sides of our recent property transactions and we couldn??t be happier with her high level of service. She??s tuned into the macro factors affecting the residential space and really has her finger on the pulse of local dynamics that dominate the San Francisco market (neighborhoods of choice, property type supply/demand, buyer demographics, etc). Most important, Danielle applied her broad knowledge to our unique needs as buyer / seller----she was able to gauge our desires and concerns and then create a plan to satisfy them. She guided us through some very choppy waters (both personal anxieties and a shifting credit/finance market) with patience and tact. She??s direct, efficient, and driven by solutions. For us, Danielle solidified her reputation as a trusted advisor and should be recognized for her sensitivity, diligence and proven skills.

-Roxanne and Neil, October 2007

P.S?.her marketing prowess is impressive---our Mission condo brought in 8 offers and sold for more than 13% over list price!

First time home buyers here and Danielle was not only a delight to work with, but also extremely knowledgeable. She gave us all the right info, guided us in the right direction, supported our decisions, answered our questions, and got the job done. In the middle of our house hunt, we shifted courses toward a different type of home - condo v. single family. This was a new area for us and Danielle helped us through and sealed the deal in a way that made us so happy.

We highly recommend Danielle and will certainly use her the next time around.

I wondered this a few times during my experience with Danielle... when does she find the time to always be three steps ahead? Many a morning I would wake up and find an update from Danielle- a note on a new listing or some new documents to sign- sent at some unseemly hour. No doubt, this girl works hard for her clients.

In so many ways I was impressed with Danielle: She understood our somewhat odd priorities; she explained each step of the process without alienating me (I am a first-time buyer); she stayed impeccably calm during the most stressful moments; and she negotiated us flawlessly, through the 'mortgage meltdown' scare, into our dream home.

I could not recommend Danielle more highly. Not only does she have the skills, the smarts, and the savvy to get the job done, but she also makes the whole experience rather enjoyable!

We feel quite fortunate to have worked with Danielle. One of the most important features in our housing hunt was to find someone who would take the time to get to know us and listen to our needs. From our first meeting with her, Danielle set precisely that tone and continued that throughout our home seeking process.

She certainly has mastered all of the requisite skills of a realtor and uses current technology to keep buyers well-informed. While many realtors would see this as sufficient for getting the job done, Danielle goes one step further. Her attention to detail and ability to make each offer as strong as possible (even beyond the financials) were particularly striking. While we entered our house hunting search simply looking for experience and a willingness to listen, we ended up finding that and so much more.

I recently sold a house with Danielle in Albany. Danielle helped me buy the house 3 years ago and based on her excellent service during the original transaction, I returned as a seller. The transaction was unique due to the fact that I was living across the country. I took advantage of all the value added services that Danielle can provide including connections for staging and renovations. She made it painless to deal with the details remotely and went well beyond any real estate agent I have ever found. I trusted her completely and received excellent service to achieve my goals. She is a true professional and would highly recommend her.

Danielle Lazier couldn't have navigated me through my first home purchase more smoothly. Her depth of knowledge and keen understanding of my personal interests and situation allowed me to trust her implicitly.
She informed me of exactly what was needed and by when to ensure a smooth process. I also enjoyed her fun but information-rich newsletters and mailers - it was just enough to handle at the right time. Her attention was prompt: she answered and offered advice (if I asked) on every question I posed, no matter how silly.

I landed in a perfect situation, and a great deal because she had connections to the vast network of Zephyr agents. Her broad base of referrals also relieved the stress of figuring out "pre-move-in renovations" and other services.

I will use Danielle for every real estate transaction I pursue in the future.

This is the second time we have used Danielle as our agent -- once when we bought our first condo together several years ago and again when we sold the condo and bought a single family home. I can't say enough about her. She is a consummate professional and very knowledgeable yet manages to communicate with her clients in an extremely relaxed and comfortable manner. She helped us negotiate an extraordinarily stressful, complex situation with grace and kept our spirits up when we were discouraged. Now we are happily settled in our new home and owe it all to her!

We are days away from completing our second real estate transaction with Danielle. As always, the process has gone very smoothly. Danielle walked me through the selling process (as it was my first time being on the selling side of the housing market). She provided me with a list of items to complete well in advance of listing the property, which reduced the needless last minute frenzy of getting the house ready for market. Danielle has been very attentive to our concerns/needs both as buyers and sellers. She very knowledgeable about the SF market, and provides sound advice for both pricing to sell and bidding. Needless to say, we will be calling on Danielle again for our next real estate adventure.

Danielle helped me and my husband buy our first home several years ago and then helped us sell that same house last fall at an astounding profit.

Buying the house was a breeze with Danielle. As first-timers, we were terrified, but Danielle held our hands through the entire process, answered our millions of questions without judgment, and most importantly, helped us get into the home that was perfect for us.

A couple of years later, when we were ready to move to the East Bay, Danielle helped us successfully navigate a really difficult escrow with outrageously demanding buyers. Danielle worked tirelessly to help us get the best price possible and fielded the buyers' demands with the perfect mix of grace and steel. I don't know what we would have done without her.

I had been looking to buy my first loft for over 3 years, with another agent and by myself. Then was referred to Danielle - she was so great. I started out so terrified and overwhelmed, but she was so patient and went through every step. I felt like I was her only client! I could be totally honest with her about my unique needs for my live/work space. And WE FOUND THE PERFECT LOFT! yay! She put in an offer, they accepted same day - and here I am 1 year later. Thanks Danielle!!!

PROS: knowledgable, fun, smart, patient, realistic, cool!

Like Jeremy N. and Sean M., I have had only positive experiences with Danielle.

From when my wife and I first started looking to buy, to when we finally bit the bullet and made an offer for our (frankly perfect) place two and a half years later, Danielle was there for us. And in the interim, when we backed off of looking, she gave us space without any animosity.

She was exceptionally helpful, knowledgeable of neighborhoods and markets, straightforward: the best asset first time buyers could ask for. She took the time to get to know us, learn what we were looking for. She both asked excellent questions and provided excellent answers to our questions, and made the whole process as streamlined and painless as possible. But every step of the way was still very much ours to take: I honestly can't imagine her pressuring anyone into any real estate decision.

I heartily recommend Danielle to anyone I know looking into real estate in San Francisco, and encourage anyone who is put off by the baffling review from "L.L." to look again -- she is a rare gem.

PROS: Knowledgeable, efficient, excellent people skills, a pleasure to deal with.
CONS: Nothing at all in 3+ years.

I am shocked at the first review of Zephyr! Danielle H. Lazier is my agent and is nothing but magnificent. From helping my wife and I find a place in time to have our baby, to holding my hand through concerns and crises, even when she didn't have to (as we'd been in our condo for months), she's always ready to supply information, counsel, and guidance.

Danielle was our last in a string of agents we tried out, and she will continue to be so long as we're both on San Francisco.

I can understand that not everyone will have the same experience with the same person, but I would encourage people using this review service to also consider my opinion and excellent experience before blindly dismissing Ms. Lazier.

PROS: Thorough, honest, efficient, diligent

Danielle was a fantastic ally and resource during my first home buying experience. She helped us understand what we could afford, what the process would be, and how to get in an offer that would be accepted. She's very knowledgeable of the San Francisco neighborhoods and the real estate market. Unlike the stereotypical agent who's only out for herself, we felt Danielle was honest, friendly (but not in a superficial way), and truly had our best interests in mind.

Now that we're thinking of moving, she'll be our agent to sell the house and buy a new one. I really wouldn't go with anyone else.

I just can't say enough good things about her! Feel free to contact me if you still have questions.

PROS: Warm, friendly, very knowledgeable, savvy, honest, organized
CONS: None -- really!
