“We are grateful for all of Raquel’s help and expertise in selling our Bay area home. She left no stone unturned! Raquel quickly got word out about our house being on the market with the brokers and new potential buyers. All of the stress of time was removed, as she took care of all of the necessary appointments both scheduling and being present. We were confident in all decisions, as Raquel took great care to communicate each step and all of our options throughout the entire process. Raquel always kept our best interest as a priority. Thank you for helping us to sell our house at the first broker showing and over asking price - our expectations were well exceeded!”

“My husband and I recently purchased a beautiful new home in San Rafael with the help of our amazing agent, Raquel Newman from Vanguard Properties. We had been house hunting on our own for about three years when we met Raquel at an open house she was hosting in Sonoma. We chatted with her for about fifteen minutes and we knew very quickly that we were going to commit to her. We have bought and sold numerous properties over the years and we have met some great agents along the way. But, it was Raquel’s unmatched ambition, enthusiasm and excitement for her new profession, that simply floored us. She was totally committed to the process, very responsive and available at all times, patient, knowledgeable, professional and very sincere in her desire to find us the right home. With Raquel, we never felt any pressure to buy and we always felt 100% confident in her knowledge and capability. Overall, we feel that her being a new agent worked in our favor. We found her passion for her profession, her drive to do right by us and her desire to succeed and deliver very refreshing.

Raquel loves what she does and it absolutely shows! My working experience with Raquel has endeared her to me in a way that’s hard to describe for a professional relationship. And, I have to admit that I can be quite hard to please. I know I’ll always count her as a very good friend. Although, she worked as a buying agent for us, we have no doubt that she would be a very strong listing agent as she has a great eye for style and attention to detail. We know she will have a long and highly successful career in Real Estate and we are happy to have worked with her. We sincerely wish her great success!”

“Raquel was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. I was incredibly impressed with her goal oriented action. She is super responsive, friendly, and professional. She obtained a full asking price offer within 2 days of listing our home. I will definitely be referring my family and friends to Raquel.”
