^^^^^ Stars Karen is very skilled in difficult closings.

She takes care of the loose ends. I like her positive approach.

My wife and I worked with Masson and Ruth.

As first time home buyers, we felt well informed because they walked us through the process in detail and answered all of our questions. They also showed what sorts of things to be wary of when evaluating houses during showings. Although the housing market is super competitive, they helped us find several houses that fit our budget without pressuring us to bid higher than we were comfortable. They worked with us patiently for 4 months and we finally closed on the house that we really wanted!

When we decided to look for a house in the fall of 2020 to relocate from Concord, CA to Sacramento area we immediately contacted Geri .

We know her from years earlier and we were always impressed by her hardworking and positive personality as well as her professionalism in the real estate area. So we knew this is the agent we want to work with. A little bit hesitant of the real estate market at that time we were not very sure what to do exactly , especially as first time buyers. However, we knew what we like and what we want it as a an interior space and neighbourhood. Geri she was very knowledgeable to advise us where and what to look for based on our budget and needs. Geri was never pushy , always listening to us, answering our questions, she let us take our time to make our own decisions . Actually, the whole process did not take for more than 2 -3 weeks . Luckily, it was very quick process with getting into a contract with the new Riverchase community in West Sacramento. I would just say that: if it was not for Geri we would still going to pay more rent in an old fixer up house in Concord, CA than mortgage now in a brand new build house in West Sacramento. We moved to our dream house at the end of July after waiting nine months to be built. My advice is: even if you decide to buy a new build I suggest you use an agent who can refer you to the builders. It makes the process less stressful than being on your own in the begging at least. Thank you Geri for all your time and inspirations! When people take such decisions in their life you need to have someone next to you who can help you make the right investment and be as less stressful as possible. . If you are looking for a very knowledgeable agent who would do a step forward for you look no further than Geri Modrova.

Dear Masson, Thank you for helping us in buying our first home.

I'm sure a lot of other first time home buyers will probably tell you the same, but we've learned a lot about the process from you and Ruth. Thank you for your patience as we were solidifying what sorts of things we wanted in a house and for not pressuring us to raise our budget. We are glad to have worked with you and will gladly refer you to others who are searching for real estate agents!

Best regards, Daniel and Cynthia Tai

Geri Mudrova is the best they come!

Before choosing a realtor to sell our home, we conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property, time and effort, passionate, financial component and how they promote their listings.

Geri stood out as the best out of all. She had recently sold another home in our community at a record speed and above list price; her marketing strategy selling the house was out of the box; She is also highly energetic and I could tell she puts a lot of work into her listings. We spoke with Geri and then met with her at our home to took a peak at our home to provide a rough estimate. We went with Geri Mudrova to sell our home in El Dorado Hills and she was outstanding in all aspects. She is very prompt in answering our questions, always keeps us updated, providing tons of info on comps in the area. Geri made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having a professional interior designor come and give us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, youtube interview with a popular youtube channel in the area and a lot more. When we saw our listing we were blown away. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing. She kept us well informed on Open House and visits by prospective buyers, ensured our home is kept clean during open house (ensuring sanization station and people visiting wear shoe covers). Our house went under contract within a matter of week after we listed it on the market. We accepted and Geri and her team walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. I've recommended the Geri Mudrova to everyone I know. She is true professional. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor. Geri you are the best!!

I was on vacation in Arizona, when i decided i would like to buy an investment property there.

I called Geri to ask her what she thought of the market there. She quickly connected me with her partner in Scottsdale and i was on my way shopping for a property while on Vacation. It was nice to find out she has partners in various States and cities and I don’t have to search for a good realtor to connect with.

***** Stars We can’t say enough about Karen Funk.

This was the second house she has sold for us and we could not be further impressed by her professionalism, skill, and willingness to go the extra mile to close the deal. She worked closely with us throughout the entire process—from our initial contact all the way through the closing—keeping us in the loop every step of the way (even when we were traveling across the country to our new home) and ensuring we understood all of our options. She provided frank, useful advice on how to prepare our home for sale, connected us with a great contractor to make the necessary repairs, and personally ensured that everything was done to her specifications. She made this a very easy process for us. We would not choose anyone else in California to sell a home for us.
