Here’s what home buyers are saying…

We were lucky to have met Therese at our very first open house in October when we decided to start shopping for houses. We only chatted with her briefly but already loved her personality and felt like she really knew what she was doing. After reading her reviews online, we decided to give her a try and are so glad we did! From the first moment we contacted her, she was very responsive, available by text at any time, which was important to us as first time homebuyers and people who work too much. At our first meeting, Therese explained the current landscape of the San Francisco market, list price versus sold price, offer dates, disclosure packets, contingencies, and multiple offer situations which brought us up to speed on the pulse of the market. Coming from a medical background and being new to the game, we knew absolutely nothing about anything regarding real estate. She was very patient and thorough/educational with her responses no matter how trivial and numerous the questions were. Shortly thereafter, we met Therese's husband, Ed, who is also a Realtor. Ed was instrumental in viewing the condition of properties we liked, and then summarizing considerations and cost estimates for systems and other items that needed updating or replacing. When we viewed listings that were potential homes for us, they acted quickly to obtain disclosures packages, reviewing them thoroughly while providing valuable advice, which was essential to the process. Their opinions on what they thought homes would sell for were spot on! These two complement each other and bring different, but vital skill sets to the home buying transaction.

They are nice, but firm, as a few times they had to guide us back to our realistic price range since homes sell for so much over list price. We put in a new offer on a new house almost every week until we got one accepted. Ed & Therese were there for each one to give us their full attention and always on time!

In the end, we achieved our goal and are now homeowners! The Milestone Real Estate Team truly goes the extra MILE for a MILESTONE life transaction and we highly recommend their real estate services!

I couldn't resist the cheesy play on words there. - Michael and Kalani


The Milestones were just phenomenal to work with! We were relocating from the East Coast to San Francisco, and Ed & Therese made the process of finding a home so easy. They truly listened to what we were looking for, presented us homes that fit our needs and walked us through every step of the process. While we'd purchased real estate many times before, we'd never done so in the SF market, and the guidance Ed and Therese gave us made what surely would have been a frustratingly-protracted experience into about as simple and painless as it could have been. Too, they went out of their way while I was commuting back and forth between the two coasts to make sure we were fully-informed and always offered to help me with transportation to the house for inspections, walk-thrus, etc. Thanks to their extensive network we were able to connect with trusted resources for all kinds of other services (painters, floor refinishers, cleaning services, locksmiths, you name it!), sparing us the time to research and risk of finding out we picked the wrong one.

These two are a fantastic team, and we are so grateful for their help. If there was a way to give them an extra star, I would! - Wendy


Ed and Therese Milestone were a dream to work with. Within 3 weeks of beginning our search for a home, they had found us the perfect house that has proved to be a great fit for our family. Both Ed and Therese went out of their way to educate us on the process, as we were first time home buyers, and they kept us informed at each stage of the process. We never felt any pressure from them, and they were extremely patient with us as we navigated the often difficult San Francisco market. It was obvious to us that both Ed and Therese know the City and its real estate well, as they are both San Francisco natives. Thanks to their expertise, we were able to win against an all cash offer. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and if we are ever in need of a Realtor again, they'll be our first port of call. - Monica and Brad
