We highly recommend working with Alan Huwe. Alan was the Realtor we chose to sell our Los Altos house. His knowledge and guidance helped us sell our house rapidly and at a price higher than our asking. He worked with us very closely throughout the process, guiding us every step of the way. Selling a house is a very stressful activity, especially when you have lived there for over 20 years. Alan met with us and listened to what we wanted and to our concerns and helped walk us through the entire process. He found vendors to get the house prepared to sell and stage it to make it look its best. With any issues that came up or any questions/concerns we had, Alan was incredibly responsive with his answers and follow-up. He used his contacts to help find us a very nice condo to lease so we had a place to move. He worked with us to set a price according to the market and kept us informed with the status of other houses on the market to allow us to adjust our expectations and price the house competitively. Alan put in a lot of his personal time and effort to minimize our concerns about the selling of the house and allow us to focus on our move. We highly recommend Alan for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of the sale of their house with the least amount of worry and stress.
After buying the house with Alan a few years back we knew then that when it was time to sell the house we would do it with Alan. We met with Alan and he listened carefully to our wishes, he gave us a direction, some advice and together we agreed what would be the right way to put the house on the market. Alan imminently took the lead, brought over the contractors, prepared the house for the Open House and made it so nice that we even had second thoughts if we should actually want to sell such a nice house. He handled the open houses professionally! We really didn't do much, Alan led the process from A to Z, sent us a daily updates and sold the house within a week with a much higher price than we asked for. Alan is a professional, knowledgeable and an amazing person.
Alan was referred to me by a friend. If there were 10 stars I would give Alan 10! He is amazing. He did an excellent job selling my home. He is goes above and beyond what is needed to have a successful real estate transaction. He is honest, knows the market, is extremely conscientious, and trustworthy. Alan isn't pushy and is very professional and easy to work with from both the seller and buyer perspective. He definitely has his client’s best interest in mind. It's not all about the commission with Alan. It's all about making sure his client is happy, gets the most value for their money, and has a good experience.
Alan Huwe was our Realtor for the sale of our parents' house in Mountain View. We live halfway across the country from the house and needed lots of help with every aspect of the sale. Alan could not possibly have been more helpful. The process of getting the house ready for sale was complex and exhausting. Alan guided us through every single step. He helped us find people to whom to donate furniture and furnishings. He brought in people to evaluate plumbing, electricity, and structural soundness; he found someone to help us make both the outside of the property and the inside look much better and more appealing. He handled the open house flawlessly and got us offers that were well beyond what we imagined was possible. He guided us through the closing of the transaction. And when we finally left the house, Alan showed up, unbidden, to help us lift and load the last pieces of furniture. We could not have had a better partner for our transaction than Alan.
Alan was a great Realtor to work with. He was very detailed oriented, and was ready to answer questions whenever I had them. He made the home buying process simple, easy, and as low stress as you can ask for during such a big life change. He was knowledgeable and considerate, even waking up in the middle of the night to email me while I was on a business trip! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alan to anyone looking for a new home.
When we decided to move from Boston to the Bay area in 2015, we felt clueless about how to begin searching for a home. Alan Huwe came highly recommended by a close friend and colleague, so we set up a time to speak by phone once our moving plans began to solidify. Even though we intended to rent for a year before buying, Alan patiently answered a million questions to help us narrow down neighborhoods and start planning for the future. Once we arrived, he continued to be available as often (or as little) as we needed, never making us feel rushed. As our search began to heat up, he matched our intensity where appropriate, yet always remained calm and hopeful. He helped us learn from the offers that were not accepted, so that we were as prepared and realistic as possible with each new consideration. Once we had an offer accepted, his extensive experience and knowledge base ensured that we would feel sully supported and informed all the way to the finish line. Now that we are settled in our new home, we are incredibly grateful to have had Alan as our realtor!
Alan sold our Mountain View house. He did a great job advising us before the sale and helping us with the preparations. He handled the open houses professionally. Alan is a great person to work with. He is very trustworthy and understands the market. He is willing to pitch in and go the extra mile to ensure everything goes smoothly, like last minute house cleanup etc. He is also very friendly, which I think is important in this job. I highly recommend him.
Alan was a great find. He successfully navigated the extremely tight south peninsula housing market, enabling me to quickly find a great home. Despite the complications with the seller's relocation company, Alan ran point on the whole process and really minimized the effort on my part and pushed the seller's folks to stay on the agreed timelines. He was solidly reliable and continues to be a great resource. I could not give a higher recommendation; he fully supports his clients.
Alan was the man for the job! Alan was very good to work with and he was able to handle everything needed. I am located in Southern California and I had a property that needed to be fixed up and prepped for sale... Alan handled all the contractors and staged the house beautifully. Alan is very professional and he does what he says he will do. I very much recommend Alan to anyone in the area that needs Real Estate services.
We would highly recommend Alan’s services. He was thorough, offered good advice and, most importantly, made the process easy. Our transaction was complicated by the combination of elderly parents and a house that needed repair work before marketing. Alan provided good suggestions, and took the burden off us by managing and coordinating all the work -- at very cost effective prices. The effort was far more than one would expect from an agent, but speaks to his professionalism and commitment to “getting it done”.
We were introduced to Alan through Coldwell Banker's affiliation with the American Airlines Mortgage for Miles program. We were not disappointed. Alan has a gift for balancing professionalism with a real compassionate, personal touch. We never felt reassured towards any property, and Alan took great lengths to show us only the right properties. After we found our home, Alan againi rose to the challenge during the closing process and went above and beyond the call of duty. We would be pleased to work with him again.
The letter is a recommendation for Alan Huwe, our Realtor for the sale of our Mountain View property. We had received Alan's name through a referral from a relocation service, so prior to our engaging him to represent our sale, we had never met. It is quite easy to find a willing Realtor to represent oneself for a property listing. We interviewed three individuals in our process. We selected Alan because we believed that he had the right mix of professionalism, knowledge of the area, and a genuine concern for our needs. Our property sale had some unusual requirements, creating a need for Alan to do some investigating into our selling conditions. Further, he managed the relationship with our management associations (property is a condo) and proactively took care of every detail. He also provided a number of services that made our sale essentially transparent, from our perspective. He did substantial research into the specific market conditions and selling activity relating to our property, on a real time basis. He further arranged for the clean-up, staging and maintenance of the condo during the sale period. Since we were relocating form the area, it was especially fortunate that we had chosen Alan to represent us. His comment to us, “Just get on with your lives, I'll take care of things here” could not have been more true. We believe he represented us very well, works very hard to be successful and genuinely cares about his client and their interests. Should you require any additional input regarding Alan Huwe, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to provide any information that we can.
Alan handled our San Carlos home purchase. With his help we were able to get our dream home in a difficult market. Alan knows the area and understands quite a bit about how homes are built. He was able to steer us away from some costly fixers that we were taken in by. Alan is willing to be patient with his clients. He worked with us for two years while we saved, learned where we wanted to buy, and found just the right thing. He is the right mix of proactive and responsive, without being salesy or pushy in any way. He was a trusted partner for us. When we did find a home we liked, Alan went above and beyond to ensure that we got cash back to cover items that inspectors found, that we got rent back dollars, and even a new washing machine when it turned out that the one in the home had a leak. It's clear that Alan takes great pride in ensuring that he sets up his clients with quality homes they can depend on and build their families in. I don't think you can do better than Alan when buying a home in the Peninsula!
Selling or buying a house is neither easy nor fun. But, Alan Huwe made both as simple and hassle free as possible. He helped with all the inspections and grunt work involved in a sale, including helping me to take care of 45 years of stuff. The open houses only lasted a couple of weeks and a good sale was made this past summer. And... he also helped me find the perfect new home - a one story condo with a small yard for me to putter in. In all, a very happy ending. Thanks Alan!!!
