"My wife and I met Chaya "by mistake" in one of her open houses, from the first moment we realized she will be the one that we will buy a house with.  Chaya knew exactly how to navigate us in this crazy market of the Bay Area real-estate, she brought to us only the properties that we will find relevant and of-course at the end she found us the place we call home now.  The entire process with Chaya was more than customer-realtor relationship, Chaya treated us and took care of us just like we were her family members that are looking for a house, she is certainly the realtor you should go with!" --- Inbal and Oriel Belzer

"We had a great experience working with Chaya and we would highly recommend her as a real estate professional. It took us over a year to find the perfect home. Throughout the process Chaya has proven to be very patient, professional and knowledgeable and was able to provide some great tips along the way. In a tough market like the bay area market, we needed a determined real estate agent, a go-getter who is always looking out for your best interest and will get the right house for you. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Highly recommended!" -- Rachel and Zvi Greenstein


"Chaya came to us highly recommended by very satisfied close friends so we knew from the start that we would be in good hands and in fact Chaya exceeded all our expectations. Chaya is not only extremely knowledgeable regarding the real estate market including details with respect to laws, standards and rulings but she is also very much up-to-date and hands on!  We found Chaya to be extremely efficient, hardworking, patient and available at any hour for our incessant question and queries.  Choosing the right home is a momentous decision. Chaya was completely in tune with our needs and desires and, more importantly, she understood our limitations and appreciated and prioritized the fact that we were pressed for time.  Chaya worked hard for us, dedicating her time and efforts to meet our deadline with great success!

Chaya is by all means professional and trustworthy. She has high work ethic and we believe she genuinely cares about her clients.  Chaya was our advisor and our guide and because of her diligence we were able to find the prefect home for us!  Thank you Chaya!!!"-- Shira and Yiftach Golan


"We would very highly recommend Chaya Shahar as a real estate professional. She was fantastic to work with--especially as first time home buyers. With Chaya, we purchased a townhouse in Redwood Shores. Chaya was helpful and patient with us as we worked to narrow down our priorities as to where we wanted to live, what kind of home, and what we could reasonably afford. She provided us with lots of options and joined us to visit our favorites. She guided us as we tried to understand the market and was great at getting answers to our questions about properties. In the end, we felt we got a good deal on the home, in large part due to Chaya's advice in the negotiation process and her role negotiating with the seller's agent. She was instrumental in helping us get through the mortgage loan application--answering all of our questions and even intervening on our behalf with the loan officer. Even after the close of escrow, Chaya has continued to help us as we sort out details with the buyers and even recommended contractors to help with updates. She has supported us through what is a challenging process and we felt confident having her as our agent. You can count on her to be there for you--literally anytime, any day." --- Sophie and Avi Baytel


"Chaya is the perfect agent for us, that's for sure. She was such an amazing help to my husband and I, buying our first home, guiding us through the process step by step and always available to meet, see another house or answer questions. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She listened very carefully to all the things we were looking for in our first home and was able to find us our dream house and knew to tell us what to do exactly in order to get the house that we always wanted (got the first house with our first offer! Although the owner received 24 other offers). Everything in a very short time.This is Chaya!"  --- Michal and Shani Shoham

"You are reading this because you want to buy a house in the Bay area, or you are frustrated putting offers and watching the house going to someone else or maybe you have a storyteller instead of real estate agent that feeds you with the explanations why you need to put a significantly higher price to get the deal. In today's market, every detail is important and this is why choosing the right agent is crucial. Chaya is an outstanding professional. She knows how to be persuasive, she knows how to put together the right proposal, including price, terms, and conditions and knows what you need to pay your attention to during the process. She has a wide network of top-notch professionals, including bankers, sub-contractors and others that are essential to help you to make the right decision. So the bottom line, Chaya knows how to buy you a house. Period." --- Boris and Sofia Maysel


"There are not enough good words to say about Chaya. We bought our first house with Chaya, who from the first moment gave all her heart and patience to that project.  Chaya was never pushing, she gave us all the time we needed until we found the right house for us. She knew exactly what we wanted and she pointed that so clearly, even before we could see it.  During all this process she was always there, available at any time and fully supportive.  Chaya still helps us in anything we need. Wouldn't do it with anyone else!" --- Efrat Levy


"Dear Chaya, Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home. We entered the process after selling and buying in the past, but we have never experienced such attention to detail, professionalism and genuine care in a process that can be very overwhelming. Your levels of energy and passion were contagious and you got us exactly what we wanted, after being able to read not only the market but also us and our needs, showing us things that were right up our alley without wasting time. The process itself was seamless as you were on top of everything - from the paperwork you walked us through, to the inspections and the exciting title sighing moment, fending away every little issue or crisis that arose. We cant thank you enough!" --- Maya and Oded Hadani


"Chaya helped my wife and I purchase our first home - we couldn't have done it alone. She was with us every step of the way and was such an integral both of the purchase process itself and of keeping our piece of mind throughout. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Bay Area." --- Eli Lipstein

George Herbert said, "The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one." How true. Or is it?In the case of selling my house that quote was true for me, but certainly not true for you... The way you handled the extremely successful sale of my house resulted from you having a hundred eyes' spending the weeks prior to putting my house on the market in preparation, while making sure that no detail was left uncovered. I'm using this opportunity to thank you for all the effort and professionalism you have shown throughout the process. I am very pleased with your service as the sales agent of my home. The great staging you organized was extremely helpful in the sale of my house. The house sold the first weekend after it was placed on the market. Also, I was very impressed by your pricing strategy and negotiation skills, which you demonstrated in the handling of multiple bidders leading to a sale price significantly higher than the asking price. I also acknowledge the difficulty of this task due to the fact that the entire process happened while I was abroad. Thank you very much for always making yourself available no matter what hour of the day or night. Thank you for going the extra mile in situations where my absence could have hindered the sale. You were never hindered. In my absence, you handled the sale with care covering all of the details and making yourself available to me any time at any hour. I am more than happy to provide a reference to your work for any of  your future endeavors. Please do not hesitate to provide my name and contact information in such opportunities. Thanks Again! —AVI

I had a great experience working with Chaya. Being a first-time buyer and limited on funds Chaya worked her magic getting me the perfect house in the perfect location. She was really meticulous about the entire process had the patience to help me understand and guide me through the entire process of buying a home and closing the deal. I’d gladly recommend Chaya to all my colleagues and she would definitely be your best bet to go with in this competitive housing market--Danish Shaikh

 “We want to sincerely thank you for your effort and professionalism…We are extremely excited to buy our first home in California and we feel very grateful😊I cannot describe the number of hoops that you leaped through for us: Showing dozens of houses, Helping us understand the application, Connecting us with the best bank loan team, Working closely with the seller agent, Aligning the process with the title company, Working day and night around the clock to close the deal.
