Dennis is your man.
If you want a realtor who actually cares about you and what you are looking for in a house, who is capable of moving extremely quickly, but is not pushy, Dennis is your man. Dennis was pretty much ridiculously amazing, and took us from our first meeting to an accepted offer within our budget in under 2 weeks. My wife and I found out our landlord was going to raise the rent by more than 20%, so we had 60 days to be out or have to start paying the higher rate, and decided we were ready to buy. I asked my friend who used to be a realtor for a referral who could move fast, and he sent me to Dennis. Boy, do I owe my friend. Dennis made time to meet with us the day after I called him, heard us out, asked some great questions to nail down details, and had listings for us to review that day. He wasn’t pushy, but fed us information as fast as we could consume it. That Saturday we checked out nine houses, and by Sunday night had decided on one we wanted to put an offer on. He walked us through the offer process, including negotiations around competing offers, and was able to get some advantages for us that got our offer accepted without going over what the house was worth to us. It’s hard to estimate the value of knowing you have an expert in the ring fighting for you, but that’s what Dennis provided for us, and even if the offer hadn’t worked out I would’ve been happy knowing we did all we could. As it was, it was accepted, and appraised higher than we paid. I’ve heard it’s traditional for realtors in Silicon Valley to get champagne or something for clients to celebrate getting the keys to the house, but when we met to pick up our keys Dennis had instead gotten us a way more meaningful gift based on a short tangent conversation we’d had when we first started looking. That attention to detail even after the deal was locked in just went further to make us feel like Dennis was on our side, and committed to us having a great experience with our new house. I would recommend him to friends, I would recommend him to my family, and he’d be my first choice if I had to do it all over again.

I was immediately impressed at how much thought and preparation they invested in presenting the home; from the welcome tent in the driveway to the full staff inside made up of the METIS real estate team, a loan...
Professional with a nice mix of being casual, Dennis provided tools to help us easily view homes on the market.
Ok, the depressingly competitive home buying market in Silicon Valley…an intimidating task to commit to entering especially with the speed at which the current market moves. My wife and I met many realtors while attending open house events, but had a really good feel that Dennis would take care of us. That’s exactly what he...
