"Dear Prospective Homeowners: It is our pleasure to recommend Stella Rosh as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for their ideal property. As people in this area would know, the Silicon Valley real estate market is very tight and competitive. Our family needed a single-family home in Mountain View/Sunnyvale and were impatient to buy. Stella has an excellent knowledge of the area and has all the important contacts with great relationships. We found her consulting skills to be exceptional. This meant that she gained a really good handle on our speciﬁc needs, likes, and wants which is crucial in an agent sourcing and recommending properties. Stella's deep knowledge of the area meant that she was active and creative in her sourcing of properties that were not yet on the market through her contacts and inquiries. This sourcing skill of hers was critical to us as she was successful in securing us a new construction property oﬀ the market in Sunnyvale. This enabled us to buy a home that had all the features we were looking for and more, which actually far exceeded our expectations of what we could purchase. In terms of attentiveness, Stella was always quick to reach out with new opportunities and was highly responsive to us. She knows how to move fast for her clients in a competitive environment. Above all, Stella was a pleasure to work with. She gained our trust early on and always put our needs ﬁrst. She is very honest and always pointed out the disadvantages and downsides of properties which as the buyer you may not have this specialist knowledge. She will also proactively do a lot of research on the area and property for you. This saved us from a few poor purchasing decisions that we might have made. Stella is a professional and is a skilled negotiator in closing. We found her attention to detail really important, and she let nothing slip through the cracks. We are pleased to recommend Stella Rosh to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion, and if we ever need to move again, she will be our ﬁrst choice in real estate agents."
"We absolutely loved that Stella was our real estate agent. Buying a house is not easy, and especially in Silicon Valley with high prices, overbidding, and a market in which an "as-is with no contingency" is the norm. With both of us working full-time, we needed someone with the good judgment we could rely upon. There are so many things to consider, for example, how much should one oﬀer in this market. Stella has a good sense of this and we really liked that we would avail of her professional opinion without any pressure. At ﬁrst, we were intimidated by the market. However, after bidding on a few houses, we saw that her price estimate was, in fact, a good number and started relying on it. We were also nervous about the as-is process since one stands to inherit a lot of the seller's problems. In particular, there was one house we really liked that showed very well. The house had a lot of interest and multiple oﬀers. We were getting ready to ﬁll out the paperwork when Stella advised us to pass on it. She discovered that the recent substantial remodel was done without permits by the seller's relative. There was also a leak in the bathroom and some foundation work was pending. Taking it "as-is" would mean that we would pay based upon the glitzy marketing, but face the risk of lower quality. Stella was also a pleasure to work with. She is very responsive and makes a good eﬀort to follow up, even working late at night. We did end up getting a house we both love. She has also been there for us after our house purchase. We've relied on her for contractor and handyman referrals and other advice. We're renting the house until we are ready to move in, and the house is now nicely done up. Stella even referred us to a good renter! We would certainly recommend Stella without hesitation."
"My wife and I (ﬁrst-time home buyers) found Stella by seeing her card at an open house in Sunnyvale. We realized we had seen her at a few other open houses, and after meeting her for coffee, we chose her to represent us as our Buyer's Agent because of the depth of knowledge she had about our desired zip codes. She was able to discuss recent listings with us because she goes to a lot of open houses on her own, which in my limited experience is unusual. From what we've heard from our friends and acquaintances, our buying process from the start of the search to an accepted oﬀer was pretty quick, being measured in weeks and not months. Stella's schedule was very ﬂexible and helped ensure that we rarely missed a chance to evaluate a house and, more importantly, that we were focused on the "right" houses by giving her honest opinion when one had a fatal ﬂaw of some kind. When preparing for a bid, she would provide insight into the seller's mindset and what might appeal to them in an oﬀer. When we would lose a bid, she could generally tell us why we lost (or more usually why the house wasn't worth the price it went for). Ultimately, her methods got us "The One" at what we consider to be a good price. The Bay Area housing market is not normal! Do not be wooed by saving a few (thousand) bucks with a certain discount brokerage. What Stella brings is a deep bench of contacts that can get the seller's eyes on your oﬀer ﬁrst and foremost. Her Rolodex extends far beyond agents, and consequently, your relationship with her will not end when you receive the keys."
"Stella had been amazing to work with. She helped us buy a house in San Jose. We worked with her for almost 4 months but Stella had been very patient and responsive with us the whole time. In this long and hard search sometimes the buyer tends to yield to pressure of the market to go out of their safe zone to buy something more costly or something less than their perfect home, especially in the Bay Area market but Stella would be made sure you stay on track and never push you for any property that you are not comfortable with. She is very prudent in her approach and evaluates each property more strictly than what we would have done, this saved us a couple of times where one time she found that radiation level from the wires above the property was higher than normal. She is a no-nonsense person and has a great network with other agents. She will get useful and reliable information that will get you an upper hand during the bidding. She was always there for us, one phone call away, be at night or day, and any new property that comes to the market, she would run to get an early view. Even after we decided on the house, she helped us a lot through the process of getting the loan and in ﬁnding good contractors and was always there with us overseeing us make sure we ask relevant questions. We could not have found any agent better than her who is so obsessed with the happiness of her customers. In the end, I think we found not only our dream home but also a very trustworthy friend."
"Words cannot express how much I appreciated having Stella Rosh as my realtor through the many months of our association. Her experience, wisdom, thoughtfulness, and downright joy in her profession during the whole 5-month process have been humbling. She made it all so easy for me while she did all the work. Stella made it possible for me to move out of state 3 months before my sale. She compiled a list of Estate Agents with whom her associates were familiar. She was my point of contact for removing what was left following the Estate Sale which was held after I had left. She was “person on-site” for all property inspections and, on occasion, for the Association Property Manager as well. Stella helped me ﬁnd a great contractor. She was in constant contact with him during the remodeling process while advising me on decisions concerning upgrades to my property and in choices such as lighting, bathroom ﬁxtures & tile, ﬂooring and paint colors. The night before our Open House weekend, Stella put together a private open house party so I could see friends who wanted to wish me well. Three days after the one and only open house weekend, we received ﬁve offers and accepted the one oﬀer which was more than I could have imagined. I cannot say enough good things about this fabulous lady. Stella made what was a very difficult transition for me into a very positive experience."
"I did quite a bit of research before deciding on Stella Rosh as my Realtor. I chose her because she is honest, realistic, and driven to meet all my expectations. The market is ever-changing, Stella's expertise was up to date and relevant. In a hot seller's market, I debated whether staging was even necessary. Stella convinced me it was, especially because of how much people use the internet to get their ﬁrst impressions of a place. She was connected with a fantastic stager and photographer. Her relationship with them resulted in a showing of my place that appealed to the maximum range of buyers with a modern style. It is easy to get caught up in a frenzy in this process and Stella's cool and collected demeanor calmed me throughout. We communicated daily if I had any questions she answered them providing the facts, pros, and cons. For example, when I was deciding whether to repaint the whole unit, she showed me the numbers and was able to quantify the potential return on the work. The ﬁnal decision is always left to you and she doesn't push you to go a certain way just gives you the straight data. Stella has your best interests at heart and works hard to ensure your satisfaction. I was selling my place as a single person and I don't think I could have found a better trustworthy partner. Her work ethic never faltered, I would recommend her to the fullest extent."
