Dear Istvan, 

I would like to thank you very much for the outstanding work you did selling
my land in Montclair, Oakland. As one of the 3000 victims of the October
1992 fire-storm in Oakland, my house was burned to the ground and all
vegetation on the property destroyed. Needless to say the property was
not in a pretty state when I decided to sell the remaining charred parcel
of land. In fact several realtors in Brand X companies gave me very
pessimistic estimates on how much I should try to sell it for. When I
contacted you, on a recommendation from a previously satisfied customer,
I was immediately impressed by your positive innovative sales attitude
and the rapid formulation of an effective sales strategy utilizing

wide network, newspapers, and realtor association meetings to advertise
and concentrate on the positive potentials of the property. I was amazed
how quickly the first serious offer came by. During the following weeks
of offers and counter offers your firm control over the process and
professional advice were crucial to enable the rapid convergence of a
deal which I am very satisfied with. It has been a pleasure to work with you,
and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone
needing expert professional realty services.


Sincerely yours,



Dr. Miklos Gyulassy

Dear Sir or Madam:

We are writing this letter to recognize the outstanding efforts one of your realtors
Istvan Sonkoly has provided during our extensive process of moving to a new area.
He tactfully navigated us through this currently treacherous housing market
bringing us happily and safely to the other side.
He listed our home and
relentlessly marketed it, to the right potential buyers until the job was finished. 
Any time we had questions, he was there, any time we needed anything,
he helped. He held numerous open homes and I truly believe his dedication
and thoroughness has taught me the meaning of customer service.
I actually feel I am now more dedicated to my own clients after this experience.
Not only did he command top dollar for our old home, he was a key factor in
negotiating the best price on our new home.
At times of stress,
he helped calm us. At times of excitement, he was excited
with us. We are extremely happy with the entire process and would highly
recommend Istvan to all of our friends, relatives and clients.
My new home office has the most outstaning view of the mountain.
We love our new home

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.


 Sincerely,       Greg and Carrie Roberts     Clayton, CA • 94517


Testimonial for our Purchase Process




"Working with Istvan was a great experience. Having
never purchased a  home in California previously,
he was able to guide us
through the
process to ensure we were able to close on an accelerated
If we missed anything, he would quickly contact us to
lay out all of the
steps and paperwork needed to get us into our new home.
 He was highly
responsive and helped us get everything we were looking

After months of debating, endless hours of researching,
and 3 weeks of touring homes, we listed our house
For Sale. After 1 successful week of being on the market
we had a change of heart. Thanks so much to our realtor,
Istvan T. Sonkoly, for showing us some pretty awesome
homes, and for getting so many potential buyers to
our home.

feeling excited.

Buying Process



“You want to make sure that you make the best decision, isn’t that right?” (Understanding the Current Market) Make sure you not missing out on any property? (See all that’s available at the current time)


The Net Sheet (“It’s important to know the ‘bottom line’, isn’t it?)


Provide you with information sheets on every single property currently on the market that fits your family’s needs and is within your budget.  Wouldn’t it be a comfort to know that you are not missing out on any possibilities


And: You drive by all, see the neighborhood; find the right the homes that you like

From the outside, in the time frame that works for you.


After that you could call me which properties you want to see from inside (also I will show you why is the first impressions are the most important one.)


Later: make the right offer (show you the property history, the current market trend so you could offer will be the best offer.)


Help with the Qualifying process (if you not done so far); I will show you: how could be not locked in a contract, to show you various contractual contingencies.


Show you: the Buyers, contingencies, Inspections, Home warranty after the purchase.


 Contract, process, (review blank purchase agreement, how to protect your deposit and review relevant provision)


I have 3 main responsibilities when we buy a property." "First, is getting the lowest possible price. I will negotiate very strongly on your behalf. We don't want the appraisal to be a problem, right?" "Second, is minimizing potential problems and liability. The last things you want are problems during or after the sale, don't you agree?

"The key point to remember is to understand the market and can accurately research the correct negotiation starting price for a property."


If your purchase in the future: Is it possible to built a relationship with a expert agent, so when you ready to move ahead, you already have lots of information about the market and you could have the best real estate business advice from an experienced, trusted REALTOR ®”?
