The Haneys

Wallace sits down with our most recent home buyers, Genny and Mark Haney to chat about some of their purchase expectations, challenges, and eventual success. 

Every home buyer has an extensive wish list of wants, but being in such a seller's market, buyers often need to whittle down and compromise. Genny and Mark started out with an ambitious list and this was further compounded with their desire to stay within geographical and budgetary constraints. We looked at many properties with them over the span of a couple months, then found the property we're sitting in. Watch the video to learn what happened.

Winter Home Buyers Workshop - December 6, 2017

HOUSE GOALS.jpg

We had another seller's market this summer and see the market adjusting. Most of our buyers this year were all financed through traditional lending with 21-30 day closes, and even winning against all cash, non-contingent offers. Discover and learn what it takes to not just purchase a property in Silicon Valley at this workshop but work directly with our team of experts to properly prepare mentally and financially for your first home purchase!

End of Summer Happy Hour

IMG_5651 2.JPG

When we started this year one of the goals was to have more social events, especially post work casual happy hours. Here we are at the end of August and finally had the time to enjoy the first, and hopefully not the last, Happy Hour of the year. It was great to see all of our wonderful clients, friends, families and day 0 supporters. 

We'll be sure to update our calendars and let you know when the next one is. 

Thank you for all of your support and continued business!

Content LAB: Wood + Water, July 8, 2017

We're sponsoring a Content LAB in conjunction with Content Magazine and Bay Maples! It's this Saturday, July 8, 2017 and the main topic of the evening is gray water systems, and how to adapt your environment to a more eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle without sacrificing the comforts you currently call home. As a perk, it should also lower your water bill!

Dinner, Drinks and Entertainment provided. 

Limited seating. Buy your tickets early!

SOLD - 4396 Laird Circle

A big congrats and many thanks to Janice Chua and Ian Chan on selling their Rivermark home.

This was the cleanest original Rivermark home we have ever seen. It showed like a new build inside and was evident that both of them lived very light. In the property preparation phase of this property all we had to do was thoroughly clean, stage, and replace the cooktop as the ignitors ceased working.

Then we went on market Mother's Day weekend which was a week earlier than originally scheduled. While we experienced excited buyers and a flood of visitors we opted to hold the property on the market for an additional week and a second weekend of open homes as many buyers expressed frustration of them needing to choose their mothers or their potential new house. We felt allowing all potential buyers the opportunity to tour the home was in everyone's best interest. 

As the second open house weekend wrapped up we set an offer date that following Wednesday. After reviewing all offers we selected a very clean, above asking offer and our clients were able to transition to the next chapter of their lives in Singapore.

This sale meant a lot to our team. For one, Janice was one of METIS' earliest supporters and one of the very few who knew about METIS before we publicly launched. Where as start ups of yesteryear (HP, Intel, Apple, Google, etc.) were often associated with garages, many of today's start ups got their start in coffee shops. Janice and Ian owned Bitter+Sweet Cafe in Cupertino where we often met and worked on METIS, it was practically a second office for us. 

Thus, when Janice inquired about the sale of her property, we were honored.

Many Thanks Janice & Ian! We hope to see you in Singapore!

Congratulations Rob & Laurie!

After renting for over a decade, Rob & Laurie took matters into their own hands and made the decision to purchase a house. Their lease was ending in a matter of 30 days, and as a result we had to search fast and write strong offers. We were able to get them in just as soon as their lease ended and their very next payment went to their personal equity rather than lining another landlord's pockets. Congratulations you two, and Mahalo!

Wingtip SF: Kentucky Derby Social

Many thanks to Wingtip SF for hosting us at their annual Kentucky Derby Social sponsored by Blade and Bow, and Garden & Gun magazine. We cheered for the one-eyed wonder Patch, but at the end watched Always Dreaming cross the line with a definitive finish. 

As a few members have mentioned, this is one of the best dressed parties of the year and this year did not disappoint. We look forward to seeing everyone at the next social!

SOLD - 631 Redwood Road

We had a riot selling 631 Redwood Road in Felton, CA. While unlike any of the properties we typically represent, this was one our social media accounts with the hashtag #CABINGOALS

We wish the new owners a charmed ownership, and plenty of memories in this Instagram-worthy home amongst the Santa Cruz Mountain Redwoods.

Congratulations Uland Liao!

Years ago Uland took a giant leap of faith and purchased his first property, a 2 bed / 2 bath condo off of North First Street in North San Jose. Coming right out of college and just getting his footing in Silicon Valley this was a big commitment. Uland made improvements to the property and when it was time to sale he solicited our experts. He was nervous through the entire process, a 'worry wort' in his words, but things couldn't have gone smoother. During his ownership this area in North San Jose exploded and the demand for housing skyrocketed. We were able not to only achieve top dollar for his property, but accepted an offer in less than 7 days and scheduled everything to parallel with his purchase - a 4 bed / 3 bath single family home.

Here's Uland talking with our CEO Wallace Chane on moving day:

Congrats Uland! Thanks for working with METIS!
