"Wendy has been there since day 1. She handled the listing, all the red tape associated with selling my father's co-op property in Alameda, Ca. She dealt with so many hurdles around getting the property sold! She was there for us 7 days a week, as needed! She was very professional, in every way! I highly recommend Wendy for ALL your real estate needs!!"
"Wendy was our agent on the condo we just sold and the one we just bought as our new home. She was the one who got us a super deal twenty years ago on the condo we just sold. That's three opportunities over a span of years to see Wendy close up: to recognize how exceptional she is not only as a realtor, but as a delightful personality. My wife and I are impressed with how hard she works, her scrupulous honesty and attention to detail. Wendy is remarkably knowledgeable and helpful, always warm and upbeat as well."
"Purchasing our home in Marina Village 16 years ago we used Wendy as our agent and could not have been treated better or had a more seamless experience. Now selling the same home, Wendy is the only professional we considered. Both buying and selling have been an absolute breeze. Wendy excels in her knowledge of Marina Village, in her guidance about both buying and selling the home and in holding our hand through the process. On top of her professionalism Wendy is personally caring and understanding. She made us feel as if we were her only client. Thank you, Wendy, for all your diligent work and thoughtfulness."
"Wendy was referred to us by family friends who knew we needed someone special to help us purchase a home in Alameda. As first time homebuyers, purchasing real estate felt overwhelming and navigating this crazy market was intimidating, but Wendy's positive and honest perspective helped to keep us grounded and optimistic with realistic expectations. After a few months of looking at every Alameda listing in our price range, constant on-going texts, calls, and emails (Wendy is incredibly quick to respond and provides thoughtful and thorough answers to questions), we finally found our home. We wouldn't have have our home without Wendy and even as we settle into our new role as first time homeowners, she's been by our side and tremendously supportive. We couldn't be happier that we bought a house with Wendy as our agent, however, now that the process is over, I miss our daily chats and check-ins."
"We have known Wendy since her days selling the Marina Village condos for the developer. She sold ours to us in 1990 and sold it for us in May 2016. She enabled us to obtain a price that was almost ten percent higher than any other single unit at MV had ever sold for at the time. She was incredibly diligent, knowledgeable, and wise, and her recommendations on contractors, including a stager, a carpet cleaner and a post-sale house cleaner, led us to excellent people whose charges were modest. We recommend her without reservation for either selling or buying."
"Wendy is great to work with. We bought our Marina Village home and sold it through her. She handled a very complicated sale with our home which was in Escrow, while we made it from one unit, into two again. When we had questions, if Wendy didn't know the answer to it, she found out. She acted as a liaison between us and the HOA, plus managed to juggle representing both us and our buyer with many "Curves Balls" being thrown at her throughout the process. Then when that 1st sale fell through, she took it in stride and managed to find us another buyer almost immediately. The home never had to even go on the market! Wendy is resilient and has abounding positive energy, as well as extreme knowledge of the Marina Village community. She went above and beyond her job, doing things like going to HOA meetings for us, planting flowers and getting us a house cleaner and carpet cleaner lined up, after our move. Wendy is amazing and because of our situation, we really don't think we could have done it without her. We nicknamed her "Wonder Woman" because she is!"
"Wendy Sanda is the agent you want if you are looking to buy into Marina Village. For that matter, she is the agent to sell your MV property if you don’t already know that because someone else helped you buy it. She has been involved with MV since its inception and knows more than probably anyone else about the development and the homeowners association. She will do her best to help you buy a house or condo elsewhere, too. She showed me many houses at the time I wanted to move to Alameda. The market was not tight then so many were available. It is more of a challenge for her now to protect her clients from paying too much for the relatively few houses that are for sale. Wendy will definitely go the extra mile for you if that is necessary, as it has been in my case. She is a hard working agent! And a caring one."
"Wendy's knowledge of the area and the market were amazing assets during the sale of my home. However, what makes her truly stand out is her ability to negotiate effectively while remaining kind and constructive. Wendy's integrity is admirable on all fronts, and she brings it into the real estate process at every turn. It was truly a pleasure to work with her."
"Wendy was onto of entire process from beginning to end. She facilitated many details because I am located on the East Coast and was not on site to coordinate with my renter when I made the decision to list the condo for sale. Wendy worked in a professional and positive manner to ensure everything was moving along including the inspections and multiple requests to go back to the property when the buyers decided they wanted to make some structural changes to the property, construction and architect consultations with prospective buyer. I would recommend Wendy highly without any reservation! She has been great to work with!"
"Over the past six years Wendy served as my broker for the purchase , then sale of a condominium in Marina Village and both my buyer and seller experiences could not have been better thanks to Wendy's personal attention during the entire process . She's extremely professional, helpful, cooperative, proactive and responsive in all of her dealings with all parties. Additionally, her positive, "can do" attitude is refreshing and makes the whole process go smoothly. I feel fortunate to have had Wendy as my representative and highly recommend you talk you her if you are considering buying or selling."
