Antoinette Galindo is the quintessential real estate agent. She is professional. She knows the law, the plumbing, how chimneys work and the best electricians. She is compassionate. When my sister died unexpectedly and her house had to be sold, Antoinette said I want this sale to have the least amount of stress on you. And it did. I would hire Antoinette again in a minute!!!
Antoinette was the fuel to launch the recent sale of our home to record heights. Her extensive real estate knowledge, trend setting marketing skills, and sharp negotiating abilities generated a 20% over asking price Sale result in less than 30 days. Antoinette's sensitivity and guidance in all facets of this transaction made our transition both enjoyable and very rewarding! We started with a realtor and ended up with a friend for life.

"After over 1 year looking for a house without success, we decided to work With Antoinette. Her level of energy and pro-activity pleased us a lot since the very beginning. She listens to the customer and capture easily what you are looking for. She also spends a lot of time on her own searching for houses that match your need, and this is how she found our dream home, only a few weeks since we started working together. In addition, she is very well-known in the bay area and has several connections, which makes the whole negotiation with the seller much easier. In our case, we had issues getting our final loan and while we were going through the process she was great at keeping the seller enthusiastic and not putting the house back in the market. We are extremely thankful to Antoinette for helping us through the whole process, and finding the house of our dreams!"
My husband and I started working with Antoinette approximately a year ago. Because we were new to the home buying process, she kicked things off with an all-day tour of homes in Burlingame. After that, she called us whenever a home popped up on the market that she thought we would like. She kept us up to date on the numbers of offers that came in for homes and the ultimate sales prices, even before they were made public, so that we could make educated bids. She was extremely patient when our budget kept on changing around and we temporarily had to drastically reduce it (but wanted to keep on looking). I appreciate that Antoinette was honest with us when she thought that we were interested in a house that wasn't quite right, even though she must've been more than ready to place us in a house after a year of looking, and my husband and I are really happy with the home that we ended up buying. My husband and I work long hours, and we were only able to view homes on weekends, but Antoinette was always willing to show us places on Saturdays and to work with our schedules (including setting up documents to be signed via Docusign). Antoinette is very quick to respond and went out of her way to make sure that we were set up in our new home and that we were comfortable that all issues were fully resolved, even when we were under contract with all contingencies removed. We had a wonderful experience working with her and definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor.
It is a pleasure for us to recommend Antoinette Galindo to you.
From start to finish, we had a fantastic experience working with Antoinette. She had an excellent command of the market and had a strong grasp of what we were looking for right away. And when we found our new house, she was instrumental in guiding us through the bidding and closing process. She was also extremely responsive to all of our questions and concerns. Most importantly, however, she is simply a delight to work with! I will definitely be recommending her to any and all of my friends looking to buy in the area!
Antoinette assumed the role of general contractor coordinating the necessary repairs. This process took 4 - 8 weeks prior to listing the property. She is extremely personable, understands the marketplace, and was in constant communication. She persisted to the final closing of the transaction.

From the moment I met Antoinette, I felt a sense of confidence and no worries. She is professional, confident and very down to earth with a good sense of humor. She works very hard keeping her client informed daily, of happenings and progress. She has contacts in every field of home repair and remodel which was what I needed to prepare the home for sale. The repairs were handled quickly and without much strain on the checkbook. Antoinette is a very take charge and get-the-job-done gal. You won't be sorry in choosing her to handle your home purchase or sale!
I worked with Antoinette when I was selling my house in San Francisco and buying a house on the Peninsula. I was very impressed with Antoinette's knowledge and professionalism from the very start. She was very helpful with the preparation of my house prior to the sale and she has excellent and savvy marketing skills. She was able to negotiate a substantial increase over the asking price.

When my wife and I decided to buy a home in Burlingame, we reached out to Antoinette. When we first met her, we knew immediately that she would be our agent. Antoinette is extremely knowledgeable and has numerous accreditations. Most importantly, she was patient and not pushy throughout our home buying process. This was important to us because home buying is one of the biggest investments in our lives. As a testimonial, we worked with Antoinette for a year and half looking for homes. We're extremely picky and wanted to find certain characteristics. My wife and I have slightly different tastes (like most couples) but sure enough, a year and a half later, she found us a home that we both fell in love with. Not once throughout the process did we feel she was pushy or gave up on us. She looked out for our best interest and we knew she would fight for us on every deal. Before we decided on an area, we consulted with Antoinette on various communities...Easton, Ray Park, Mills Estate, San Mateo Park, Burlingame Park, Hillsborough to name a few. She was able to provide us local knowledge and insights. She is well organized and walked us through every step. Since we had a lot of questions, she was also very responsive and returned all of our calls. I think this is important for first time home buyers or veteran buyers who may not have all the know-hows. We love our home and would highly recommend Antoinette to any of our friends and family.
I worked with Antoinette on both side of the fence over a one year period.

A few months ago I needed a realtor to help sell a houe which was part of a LIVING TRUST. The house was located in San Francisco. My sister directed me to Antoinette Galindo who works for Alain Pinel Realtors.
From our first cup of coffee to the final signing of papers in escrow, Antoinette was outstanding. She was always available to answer any questions and help in every way possible. She demonstrated incrediable knowledge about the real estate market. She also researched extremly well the particular area in which the house was located. Her attention to every detail was remarkable. She always made me feel like I was her most important client.
The house needed many repairs and some changes. The people who Antoinette recommended were also great. The work was always done on schedule, at a very competitive price and with real care.
I cannot thank Antoinette enough for dedication and hard work.
The house sold in two weeks after it went on the market. We received more than our asking price.
Antoinette Galindo is simply the best.
Very Truly Yours,
To Joanne Wondolowski-Manager
This is the time of year for the Hollywood Oscar Galas. It brings to mind awards and recognizing people for their most distinquished work. I would like to be a presenter at a Real Estate Event, in which I would award an Oscar Statuette to Antoinette Galindo of Alain Pinel Realtors for an outstanding all-star performance as the best in her field.
Charm, salesmanship a professional savvy of the housing market-plus a keen and sincere desire to accomodate her clients and to dedicate herself totally to do her very best for them, makes her indispensable in her field. Having personally experienced her expertise, I can attest to the fact that her work is expeditiously and meticulously performed. She has set a standard of excellence in real estate.
Antoinette was a constant source of comfort. She looked out for me every step of the way and it is for this compassion, professionalism and integrity that I'm truly grateful.
I would readily recommend Antoinette Galindo's services to all.
Hi Antoinette. Happy New Year to you from my family, and thanks for the 2010 calendar that you sent.
We have not talked in a while, so I wanted to let you know that the progression of dementia led our father's peaceful and anticipated death on December 06, 2009. He had wonderful care here, and being close to my family made his life much more fulfilling than it had been during the time that he lived alone in Daly City. My dad's obituary appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, and you can still preview it.
One key point in our family's transition from Allyn's years of independent life in Daly City to the assisted living arrangements that he eventually needed here in San Diego was when you were able to market and sell his home so quickly back in 2006. That was such a good experience for him, and for us, that we will always remember what a pleasure it was to work with you. We also are very thankful for the referral that we received from your colleague in North Carolina, by way of Robyn's husband Richard Forde. I believe that we on our own could not have found a Realtor more suited to our family's needs than you!
I hope that the real estate market there continues to improve and that you are prosperous in the coming year. Thanks again.

Being new to the Bay Area, we had no idea where we wanted to find a home or even where a good neighborhood to live in was located. Thankfully, we were referred to Antoinette to help us carve our way through the housing jungle here! Antoinette took a great amount of time to sit down and talk with us to understand what our wants and needs were. She was nice enough to show us homes in just about the whole peninsula before we found a great home in the Sunset District of San Francisco! After finding a home, Antoinette handled the buying process with great professionalism and clearly outshined other agents with her knowledge and understanding of the home buying process and procedures. We were very lucky to have Antoinette in our corner during our home-buying experience.
We sincerely thank Antoinette for the help, for being so personable, and for making us feel super comfortable. We will definitely hand her card out to anyone and will be back for our next purchase! David Mason & Tracie Ferguson-San Francisco
Thank you for your attention to detail in the sale of my Uncle's property. You are a top notch agent.
To: Joanne Wondolowski Manager
It is a pleasure to write this letter recalling the experience of selling my deceased aunt's home with Antoinette Galindo as our real estate professional.
Because of the challenging circumstances of the situation and my total lack of knowledge and experience about the real estate market, I was quite anxious. I knew that I would need an honest professional, who would be able to advise and lead me through the process of selling the property.
What I thought would be a very complicated, time-consuming and intimidating experience, turned out to be just the opposite. Antoinette met us at the house totally prepared with background facts and figures for similar properties in the area. After leading a discussion regarding my options, she outlined a comprehensive marketing plan.
Antoinette has extraordinary communication skills. She listens to her client and is able to explain complex principles in an understandable manner. Her attention to detail is very impressive. She gave me a written time-line and continually updated me with progress reports. The expert coordination of the sales process and the advocacy for my best interests were accomplished in a very honest, personable and upbeat manner.
Antoinette made this experience stress-free for me. It was truly a seamless and enjoyable experience working with her.
I would not hesitate to recommend Antoinette Galindo. Moveover, I wouldn't consider any future real estate endeavors without first consulting Antoinette. She is truly an outstanding professional.

You are FANTASTIC!
Thank you for going the extra miles today; and beyond the call of duty-I know we might have negotiated a slightly better price, but I also feel certain time was of the essence to avoid a bidding war. Based on properties we have toured between $875- 1 million, this property at this price is a GEM, this is a win/win deal for all concerned. THANKS AGAIN FOR A GREAT JOB!!! We are very pleased with your results!!!
Bruce and Elsa Greene
THANK YOU SO MUCH
We would like to thank you so much for being the best Realtor we could have ever imagined. You were always there for us, and worked so hard to make sure that we got the best price possible. We never had too worry about any of the paperwork as you were right on top of it, and made sure that everything was done properly. You took the worry and fear out of a major decision, and we couldn't be happier. Thank you again for being the best most responsible Realtor we've ever had the pleasure to deal with.

She is a knowledgeable, professional, and dynamic agent and I was fortunate enough to have her represent me both as a buyer and seller. Because Antoinette uses her people-talents along with her Realtor talents, she doesn't just help you buy and sell houses. She helps you live a better life. I just wanted you to know I am a very happy and satisfied client. You are lucky to have her on your team.

A HIGH DEGREE OF EXCELLENCE
I wanted to take the time and send you a greeting to say how much Adrienne and I enjoyed working with you on the transaction on Grand Teton,
From the onset, we identified that we were dealing with an exceptional Real Estate Professional. We would like to know if you might be interested in being part of a team in regards to referrals between the three of us. We feel we finally have found an agent we can trust will bring clients the utmost diligence and fiduciary a client should always expect to enjoy.
Thanks again for the job you've done. You have made what potentially could have been an emotional sale for the family a transaction in which we can all say, that's how it should be done.
Adrienne and Shawn
