Derek is simply amazing! I have used Derek on several occasions. The first was 4 years ago when I went to buy my first house in San Francisco. As everyone is aware, it is a tough market and being a first time home buyer I was nervous and apprehensive. Derek made the whole process smooth and easy. He was honest, transparent, positive, smart, and savvy. When I finally made an offer on my first home he spen...

We bought our first home with Gillian in the Castro in 2004. We probably saw 20 other units before we saw the one we had to buy, a beautiful top unit of a two-unit building. About three years later the opportunity arose to purchase the below unit, which we quickly did. It turns out that Gillian knows an amazing property management team, so as we embarked on finding renters and moving out of the city, a s...

As a career real estate investor, I've literally worked with hundreds of agents over my 30-year career, so when I choose an agent to sell our TIC I had a high bar of expectation. Derek Schreiber exceeded and then completely blew away that bar, as he continually knocked every detail out of the park. From pricing to staging to when and how long to market, Derek is a true master of his craft. He guided us ...

We highly recommend Derek. We recently purchased a property through him (he represented us) and found him to be a great agent with the abilities necessary to navigate a tough market. Derek provided excellent guidance, gave us the straight story and wasn't afraid to give his opinion when appropriate. He communicated well throughout the process, was patient with us and the other agent, and built a strong r...

I found Gillian after my first (failed) attempt at buying a place left me in tears. Gillian immediately put me at ease and made the whole process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. She was smart, savvy, and felt like an old friend. I realized the first go-around how important it is to have a good team to support you during this process and Gillian was not only great herself, but she also put me in...

I have dealt with Derek both on the buying and selling side. First, Derek is the friendliest and most professional agent I have ever dealt with in San Francisco. He is patient, very hard working, knows how to make everything easy and essentially seamless. But most important was the strategic insight Derek brought when I needed to sell my place. He directed me to the right people, was extremely sharp abo...

My wife and I worked with Gillian to define, refine and ultimately buy our first condo. We came into the process with a limited understanding of the process; she was our patient guide, walking us through each and every step. Gillian is incredibly personable, well-connected and knowledgeable. She's relaxed when it's time to be relaxed, but knows how and when to spring into action when the time comes. We ...

We've worked with her [Gillian] for a while and she is immensely patient, incredibly knowledgeable about the San Francisco real estate market, and easy to talk to. She makes you feel like you're getting advice from your smartest pal, while handling every interaction with professionalism and integrity. Gillian is busy with many clients, but always made us feel like her first priority. I couldn't think of ...

Our family has worked with Derek for several years now. He has helped our family both sell and buy a new home. Derek is the consummate broker that provides honest expert guidance and is attentive to all your needs and wants. In addition to being a very skilled negotiator he is also well respected in the industry and among his colleagues, which is an extremely important characteristic. I highly recommend...

What a great house-buying experience I had with Derek. Not only is he competent and detail oriented, he would always go the extra mile to help me understand the process, getting questions answered I should have had and on top it is - great fun working with. Through his insight, I felt I was making good decisions.

We met Laura at an open house on a Saturday and we reached out to her that same day and she got us set up in the Compass portal immediately. We were drawn to her happy, positive attitude at the open house and knew we wanted her to be our realtor, as she seemed to really understand what we were looking for as younger, first-time buyers. 3 days later on that Tuesday, we toured our home and immediately fell...

We had a wonderful experience working with Laura. She was extremely prompt, punctual, and available. She went to great lengths to explain to us how every step of the process worked. I think over the course of a few weeks while were heading toward our closing date we must have asked hundreds of questions and she got us every single answer we needed. Even if it was simple items to give us peace of mind she...
