About three weeks into our buying process I woke up and the first thing on my mind and out of my mouth was, “I am so grateful we found Sergio.” Buying a house is so stressful, especially when you’re doing it from the other side of the country, and Sergio 100% had our back. He made us feel like we were always his most important clients.
I would recommend Sergio without the slightest hesitation. He went above and beyond for us on multiple occasions, his communication is always quick and included all the details, and he’s just a great guy who is easy to work with.
Sergio is an exemplary realtor. He knows his stuff and is more than willing to learn more when faced with something new. We were exclusively interested in an older home and he was well acquainted with the historic market in Riverside. Sergio also made sure to get contractors and inspectors that were known for their work with older homes so that he could trust that he was providing us with the best available service. It is clear that Sergio takes pride in his earned reputation and works hard to maintain it.
Sergio knew all the ins and outs of the home buying process and could easily address any of our questions (we had a lot). He never made us feel like we were a bother and quickly and professionally responded to each with clear, realistic answers. Sergio also expertly walked that fine line of working for us and respecting our wishes while also remaining the expert and advising us when necessary.
We are moving to Riverside because of a new faculty position at UCR. I mention this because if there are any other new folks moving for this reason and using the UCR loan system, Sergio is now well acquainted with their rules, their people, and their process. His knowledge will definitely be of value to you as you navigate their system.
Lastly, I mentioned we’ve been doing all this from across the country? We currently live in Boston and Sergio has been our surrogate in so many ways. When we first found the house he toured us around with video, acted as our eyes and ears and answered so many questions, worked with numerous contractors on our behalf, spent a day with my husband when he flew out for the inspection, met up with our friends to pass along the key, took measurements for us for the fridge… I mean seriously! Above and beyond, people. Above and beyond.
I wholeheartedly feel good about recommending Sergio and can be certain that anyone working with him will be in great hands.
Being a first time home buyer, I was skeptical of real estate agents. My finance had used Sergio in the past and when we were ready to buy our first home together he insisted on using Sergio again. I have to say, I am so glad he did! Sergio is knowledgeable in all things real estate. He was willing to answer ALL of my questions, and worked with our busy schedules to see any property. He even showed us properties at 8pm, what other agent does that! He never pressured us after seeing a home, or tried to “sell” us on the property. If we asked him his opinion he would give it honestly, but never pushed for one home.
We put in multiple offers on properties and Sergio honestly told us what was fair, and what wasn’t. He communicated with us through the whole process, giving us status updates, and letting us know as soon as he heard back from a sellers agent. When we finally got the property we wanted, he had an arsenal of people to contact for any home improvement needs. We worked with several of his referrals and they were excellent as well.
Overall, I would refer Sergio to all of my friends and family. When we are ready to sell this house and find another, our first call will be to him! Thank you Sergio for all your hard work and for getting us into our first home together!
Personal service-actively participated in transaction. Answered phone calls and emails promptly, guided me through entire transaction. Made sure my best interest was always protected!
We just purchased our first home thanks to this amazing professional. Sergio went above and beyond his job he is a wonderful person to work with. As first time home buyers we were not familiar with the process Sergio was very helpful, knowledgeable, patient, honest, and took the time to explain the entire process. Also important to me was the fact that he put absolutely no pressure on us. Sergio found exactly what we were looking for in 2 weeks, he took care of us during and after the process. We found Sergio online, my husband and I highly recommend Sergio Salazar.
Recommend by our son, Sergio was relelentless in helping us push forward with repairs to put the house in tip-top shape. He arranged several open house settings and helped to get us an early sale. We would recommend him to anyone looking in the area.
