"I would like to thank you for your outstanding marketing efforts in the recent successful sale of my home. When I selected you I knew that you would do an outstanding job and my expectations were exceeded.
I especially appreciated the throrough job you did in getting the house ready for market and the timely and complete way that all issues and obligations were met once we had a sales contract. Your integrity in dealing with all other parties involved was very much a part of our success.
Again, thank-you so much. I would highly recommend you to other prospective home sellers."
Bill Handel, Palo Alto
"As each escrow with a cooperating broker closes in this office, I ask the agents involved to access the other agents' performance. I get very few raves. Carol Carnevale and Rosemary Vaughan Squires praised you highly, not only saying you do excellent work but that it was a pleasure to work with you."
Tita McCall, Manager of Seville Properties (since acquired by Coldwell Banker)

"Monica is a very patient, conscientious and knowledgeable realtor when it comes to helping you find a home. In helping you narrow down your requirements, she caters the search to your specific needs and within your means. Once you zero in on a property, she helps you seal the deal very quickly and efficiently. I felt extremely fortunate to have her behind me in purchasing my property."

 "We have known Monica ever since she helped us purchase our first home in Menlo Park almost 10 years ago. Her expertise and experience in the real estate market and her willingness to put her client first are exceptional. Now that we live abroad, we selected Monica to manage our rental property because of her high standards and her trustworthiness. We couldn't imagine a better person with whom to work."

"I have worked with Monica on multiple occasions, both on home purchases/sales and rentals.  I find Monica to be extremely organized, responsive and responsible.  Most importantly, as her client, I feel that Monica constantly looks out for my interest in approaching any situation.  She has my most enthusiastic recommendation."

 Pete Ma

"Monica is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient.  I've bought two houses from Monica and would use her again and again.  Each time I worked with her, she showed me over 40 houses!  And yet, she never once pushed me into buying.  She has her clients' interest at heart!"
Hanna Bui-Eve
Attorney at Law

"In 2007, I spent several months helping my son and his wife search for and purchase their first house together in Menlo Park. Throughout the process, Monica Arima provided excellent advice and great insight into the communities we were searching. Monica's experience and knowledge rivals that of a group of experts all rolled into one. She is professional, knowledgeable, and creative. Her exceptionally detailed analysis of each property we were interested in presented tremendous value to us. Monica also advised us on how to make the best offer for each property. Plus, Monica is familiar and friendly with all the selling agents in Menlo Park, Palo Alto, and Los Altos. We were pleased with her services and highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a home in these highly desirable areas."

 "Over the past 10 years you helped me sort out the N CA real estate market and assisted in buying two homes and selling one. You always stayed on top of the deal and I always felt that you had my best interest in mind.  You only called me when necessary and only introduced me to properties you knew I would be interested in pursuing. I was happy with my first home for 10 years and love my new home after one year.

Thanks for all your caring and efforts over the years."
