I wanted to take a moment to convey my appreciation for the amazing efforts that Antero Portela delivered on my behalf, both as my buyer's agent, and later as my listing agent. Both transactions were completed with amazing efficiency and incredible net benefit to me and my family.
The housing market in the San Ramon/Pleasanton area is currently very competitive. In addition, my family had very particular and unique requirements for the home we were seeking. Antero spent a considerable amount of time visiting homes with me, over the course of several months, to better understand my requirements. After a couple of very competitive offers which we did not have accepted, Antero connected us with a seller that wanted to avoid the stress of marketing their house. More importantly, their house met all of our needs perfectly. It was a dream come true, made possible through Antero's untiring efforts on our behalf and his complete understanding of our requirements and budget. We couldn't be happier in our new home in Pleasanton.

There are not enough stars in this review to rate the amazing experience to find a house with Antero: the most gifted realtor we have ever met!! After 9 months of failed 'bidding wars' in Downtown Pleasanton, we had the chance to meet Antero in an open house and we also had the feeling that Antero would find us a nice house before it hits the market. And in less than a week, working very hard, he did ....what some other realtors considered to be "Mission Impossible" in this very hot housing market!! So if you are looking for a "super" realtor, do not hesitate because in this world of realtors there is Antero and the other ones ... like in soccer (our passion), there is Cristiano Ronaldo and the other players !! Cherry in the cake: Antero also speaks fluently Portuguese, Spanish and very soon French as we share the same passion for music in general and French songs in particular (we previously came from Paris, France, our hometown). Finally, choosing Antero is like choosing "la crème de la crème"!!

To anyone in the Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore area looking to buy or sell a home, I would highly recommend Antero Portela. We recently sold our home in Pleasanton and we chose Antero as our agent. What a great decision it was. Antero went above and beyond our expectations and was with us every step of the way. This guy will work hard for you and make sure all of your dreams come true. He has become a friend for life as he has earned our respect and trust. Look no further than Antero Portela, you will not be disappointed.

Our first impression of Antero as a Realtor was that of someone who is a hard worker and very diligent in all details…...There is a common saying that the “proof is in the pudding”. However, in real estate, the real proof is in the funds transferred at closing. The funds we received were significantly higher than we had realistically expected. For that, we are extremely grateful for all the work that you put into this transaction. Your honesty in laying out the issues and your steadfastness at getting the job done were clearly demonstrated time and again. Cindy and I are extremely pleased at all that you have done for us and would highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking for an honest, faithful and diligent Realtor who will help them navigate the issues when selling their home.

we got referred to Varsha by one of our friend. Varsha has helped us thoroughly in our entire process of buying home. She made our home buying process very easy on our end and effortless. She has extensive knowledge on the area we were interested to buy. She helped us to buy home in our exact budget. I would definitely recommend Varsha and her team to all.
It's been pleasant experience having Charlie as our agent. He has been very knowledgeable and patient throughout the entire process and my family and I cannot be more grateful for him. We are very content in our new home and again are very thankful for Charlie's diligent work and negotiations. I highly recommend Charlie Lui to anyone buying or selling homes.
In a few words, the experience of working with Kathleen was nothing short of exceptional. She is clearly very knowledgeable, very patient and supportive of the needs of her client .. all of which by themselves are reasons for me to not look for anyone else for any future real estate needs. But more than that, what really touched us the most was, that, even after the place we wanted was confirmed, negotiated and transaction was complete, she continued to keep in touch ensuring that we were all settled, comfortable and offered any help we would need in being better acclimatized with the city. Truly the best possible experience I could've ever imagined. If Zillow allowed for more than 5 stars, she'd probably still would've gotten all of them from me... and i wouldn't hesitate in strongly recommending her as perhaps the best agent to work with in the Tri Valley.
Shashi is the best realtor I have encountered. He is very professional and you can trust him 100%! He is worth every dollar of his commission.
