"someone who can be trusted"

From day one, we appreciated your sage advice about the timing of the sale, market trends, listing price, and how to take each step in a very systematic fashion....When it comes down to it, selling a home can be very stressful and what we all want is to work with someone who takes the stress out of the situation, someone who can be trusted to get the job done simply and efficiently I always felt that you were 100% on top of every single aspect and I personally appreciated the consistent updates on the progress along the way Stanford University Sports Medicine Department of Orthopedic Surgery

"knocked it out of the park"

Yvette knocked it out of the park on our recent home sale. She helped us squeeze into the market as first-time buyers and then sell the home three years later for far more than we expected. She shepherded us through all steps of the sale and really reduced the stress by handling all the details. Yvette can do it all: She picks out the right light fixtures to spruce up your home and then negotiates the deal and finalizes the close. We recommend her enthusiastically!

"always professional and helpful"

I contacted Yvette for help with the selling of the Trust property. We talked and she did her homework by providing a report on the properties in the area as well as making suggesting which I requested to help with the property sale. The work was always professional and helpful. We did talk of the situation and established a good sound working relationship which was pleasant and comfortable. I trusted her judgement and was assured by her suggestions. The property went on the market and we examined the bids and went into contract. I have done business with other real estate agents and Yvette is pure gold.

"I was genuinely pleased"

Once a client becomes genuinely interested in the home, that is where the skill of an agent becomes exercised, and that is where I felt that Yvette was in her strong suit. I was genuinely pleased by Yvette’s handling of the sale of our home.

- Daniel N. and Rosanne L.

"very involved and worked diligently"

Yvette was recommended to us by a friend. During our housing search, we found her to be patient and not pushy. She would give us her professional advice, but also respond to our wishes. While we searched for homes, she always kept our requirements for a house and school district in mind, especially the needs of our young and growing family. She was prompt with her texts/emails/phone calls. When issues arose with our lender and with our rent back, she was very involved and worked diligently to resolve the problems as smoothly as possible. She is a reliable and conscientious agent whom we recommend highly.

"knowledgeable, organized, responsive, and patient"

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again, and to send you the recommendation paragraph for your website (apologies for the delay): We just completed the purchase of our home in Los Altos and would highly recommend the services of our realtor, Yvette Stout. Yvette gathered information about our family and priorities, educated us about the neighborhoods and then helped us navigate a hyper-competitive market to get a winning offer on our new home. Over the course of 8 months, numerous open houses, and a few unsuccessful offers, Yvette was our rock - knowledgeable, organized, responsive, and patient. We never felt pressured to rush into a decision (even though the market itself was high-pressure). And we were so pleased to have Yvette on our side when we were ready to make those offers - she walked us through the offer process in person, presented our offer to the selling agent in person, and always kept us up-to-date on the status. The next time we are in the market to buy or sell a home, we would definitely use Yvette again!

- Thuy and Nicolas F.

"exceptional efforts"

"highly knowledgeable and savvy"

As first-time buyers in the hotly competitive Bay Area market, Yvette was a tremendous resource for us. She is a highly knowledgeable and savvy business woman and she's kind hearted. All along we knew Yvette was looking out for our best interests. She worked hard and placed us in the perfect first home.

- Lily B.

"went above and beyond"

You went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor and made the home-buying process painless and simple. You took care of things that should have been on our own "to-do" list every day for us and responded to every email/question we had in 5 minutes or less (literally). You were truly a pleasure to work with.

- Deborah and Bryan G.

"always looked out for our best interest"

She made everything SO easy and smooth for us. No matter what the obstacle was she found a way around it!! She always looked out for our best interest. Thanks to Yvette we now live in our dream home!” Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I’m DEFINITELY sending them her way.

"without doubt my best agent"

In the last 12 years, I have had 5 real estate agents. Yvette was without doubt my best agent. Her work ethic is incredible. My work schedule is demanding; she covered me in every way possible including searching, screening each home first, late night calls and office visits, and all aspects of financial, legal, and services. She continues to be the person I go to when I need help figuring out my new community. She's wonderful. Really.

- Dr. Regina D.

"incredibly excited and grateful"

"highly professional"

Yvette was always available and answered all our questions quickly via email/text/phone. Yvette is highly professional yet also incredibly personable and lovely to work with. Yvette is honest, reliable, intelligent, organized, efficient, and committed. We truly have only the highest regard for Yvette.

- Liane and Josh B.

"It was so comforting"

……We appreciated that she was more worried about finding us the right home than just finding us a house. Yvette was there for us every step of the way, helping us navigate the loan, ensuring that the seller made repairs that came out of inspection reports, and helping us close. It was so comforting having Yvette as our agent, we couldn’t have done it without her.

- Jessica C.

"felt extremely well represented"

We felt extremely well represented by Yvette during the bidding process. There were a dozen offers for our home, but she guided us to present a strong bid without overvaluing the property and skillfully managed the ensuing process. She actually suggested that we decrease our final offer from the amount we were willing to pay. That we won is a reflection of her negotiating skills; that she didn’t want us to overbid is a testament to the fact that she was looking out for our best interests, and not simply trying to secure a sale at any cost.

- Samantha and Gregory C.

"cannot thank you enough"

We were thoroughly impressed with the presentation of our home to the market. It was …flawless! Amidst the choppiest lending market and softest regional housing market since 2002, you managed to sell our home over asking price in 30 days from accepted offer. Although the points above are factual and “cut and dry”, undoubtedly the best part of the experience was the personal approach you took to making sure we “felt good” about the process. We simply cannot thank you enough, Yvette.

- Nayna K.

"puts her heart and soul"

I know we weren’t the highest offer, but Yvette’s relationship with the realtors involved and her presentation to the family ensured we got the house and finally, we have a place for our family to call home that we treasure. If you are looking for someone to help you find that perfect place you will not find someone better than Yvette. It is not just a job to her, it something in which she puts her heart and soul and for that, you will always be glad you trusted her with this enormous decision. Good luck!

- Jen A.

"helped us a great deal"

All details were followed carefully, and in this first experience of ours, which very often causes excessive stress and anxiety, we encountered no major obstacles and the close went smoothly. She even helped us a great deal to settle in our new home, providing information about services, utilities, etc. We will recommend Yvette, in a heartbeat, to any friends or acquaintances who are looking for a real estate agent. If we ever want to buy or sell any other property, she will be the first person we call.

- Davis and Daisy C.

"Thank you so much"

Thank you so much for your guidance and expertise! We know we couldn't have navigated this market without you. As our family grows in this home, we will always remember that you made it all possible. We look forward to working with you again in the future and will be sure to send our friends and family your way!

- Dr. Edward and Karley M.

"went above and beyond"

Yvette, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart as you went above and beyond the call of duty with regards to selling my home. Being there were so many obstacles that you had to face, you never made me feel anything but that I was your top priority and I will never forget that.

- Lisa B.

"a gem to work with"

Yvette, you were absolutely a gem to work with! Thank you so much. You were so well researched and always on point. You provided us with all the right direction to sell out house quickly and effectively. We really felt like you listened to our ideas and concerns while at the same time offering fantastic guidance and knowledge. Oh, and you seem to never sleep as your response time is always about 2 seconds. We could not have done this without you!

"so grateful to Yvette"

I have to say that this is my second time using Yvette to purchase a home and she certainly did not disappoint! Her service level and professionalism are outstanding, and she truly wants to help you to find the right home for you and not just settle. As it’s a challenging home buying market, Yvette was so strategic in her approach, truly a 'master' negotiator, and did everything she could to help me get my new home. The local agents really respect her and want to work with her, which is important in any market. I'm so grateful to Yvette for her help and guidance twice in finding the right home for my family! I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to work with Yvette again.

"went above and beyond"

Yvette went above and beyond to ensure a successful sale of our house, managing relationships across prospective buyers, other agents, stagers, photographers, contractors, even housekeepers. She communicated openly with us, handled things quickly and competently, and drove a higher sale price. A terrific marketer and negotiator, most of all we love working with Yvette and feel we have an advantage in the marketplace and a friend away from it!
