Casey and her team did fantastic job for my recent two transactions in a very professional and productive way! As a result, I didn't need to take even a single day off!:) In addition to her solid local knowledge, great access to off-market inventories, warmness and honesty, one thing she really stood out from other agents is the amazing emotional understanding and support which I feel so lucky to have her as our agent to make the big decision of the biggest purchase in your life:) Thank you Casey!

Christine was absolutely amazing in helping us find our first home. She carefully learned what we were looking for and then worked exhaustively to find it. Along the way, she kept in constant communication and responded to any inquiries immediately. Her tremendous knowledge of and familiarity  with Bay Area real estate were essential to our search. Once we found our dream home, we felt totally assured with her help in negotiating and purchasing the house. We could not be more grateful to have had Christine as our agent.

Susan Michal

License# 01837962


My husband and I worked with Susan Michal of the Sternsmith Group to purchase our first home in San Mateo and couldn't have had a better experience. We feel so grateful to have had her guidance and expertise throughout the process of finding our home. Her vast knowledge of the Peninsula helped an overwhelming process seem manageable. And her calm demeanor was exactly what we needed. She treated us as if we were family and always kept our best interest in mind. We never could have gotten this house in such a great neighborhood without you and we're so unbelievably happy here. We're planning on sticking around for a while, but if we ever leave, we'll be giving her a call!!

Mary Lawson

License# 01382425


Mary Lawson was our real estate hero in both the sale of our San Francisco condo and the purchase of our Peninsula home.  When we decided to list our SF condo I was pregnant with our first baby.  Mary helped us empty and stage our condo to have it ready for showing, actually offering to personally pack up our belongings, while still being sensitive to the fact that we were living in our condo during this process.  She is extremely helpful and hands on, bringing in some of her own personal decorations to help our condo look its best.  Mary spared no expense getting our listing in front of potential buyers.  She made an incredible video, using a drone to capture an ariel view of our neighborhood and the beautiful San Francisco skyline, and beautiful property handouts for our open houses and broker's tour.  In about a week and a half we had 3 competitive offers that exceeded our expectations and met all of our personal needs.

When it came time to purchase a new home, Mary continued to advocate for us and work hard to find us the best opportunity in this competitive market.  She was honest with us and managed our expectations without making us sacrifice what was important to us and while always respecting our budget.  She was as invested in our house hunt as we were and she helped us find a beautiful home while we were nine months pregnant.  She turned a potentially stressful task into a total success.

Mary takes her job very seriously and works tirelessly to get results.  She made herself available to us at any time, even calling me back while she was attending a wedding.  Mary is extremely professional and well connected in every aspect of the housing market.  It was obvious to us that she is well respected and trusted in her profession.  She was an invaluable resource for us.

If you are looking for a real estate agent to represent you in the sale or purchase of a property, we highly recommend Mary Lawson.  No one will work harder on your behalf or personally invest more time and energy to meet your real estate needs.  We are so lucky to have had Mary as our agent and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate.
