Janelle received a bachelor's degree in communications from San Jose State University. Her degree helped her develop an awareness of how effective communications contribute positively to personal interactions, business relationships, and the dissemination of information through marketing outlets.
Learning this coupled with a desire of wanting to own her own business, she ventured into business with her sister in interior design. Furthermore, interior design and home architecture are something she always loved and wanted to do. And when you love something, you do it well for the benefit of the self and your client.
Manel represented us as we pursued buying our dream home in Dublin. Her professionalism, local knowledge, communication and perseverance helped us achieve that dream. Manel's navigation of a multi-bid situation for a model home, during the buying process, while representing our best side to the sellers was impressive. Given her success with the purchase of an upgrade, she was a natural choice in representing us to sell our current home. While market conditions change continuously, when selling a home you need someone consistent, resourceful, agile and masterful in the negotiation process. Manel was great source of advice, every step of the way. Manel helped us find local contacts to prepare our home for selling, including painters, window cleaners, home inspectors, window technician, home cleaners, fence repair technician, etc. Our home was prepped within a week of us moving out ! Manel drove the whole process and the quick wrap up is commendable. Staging of our home was free with the contract. Our home was staged to look impeccable and staging added a ton of value to highlight the beauty and assets of our home. Photography of our staged home by a talented photographer provided high resolution photographs that created a impressive listing. I would re-hire Manel in an instant if we ever decided to make a real-estate change in the future. She has been a total game-changer for us.
I highly recommend Manel to anyone looking to sell their home. After interviewing realtors I chose Manel for a few reasons. Firstly, she has been selling homes in my area for many years and has an awesome reputation and track record. Secondly, Manel is very professional, prepared, and really listened to what I wanted, and worked within the time frame I desired. Lastly, meeting Manel at our children’s school years ago I knew Manel to be honest, caring, and very hardworking. I knew that selecting Manel would have my best interest. I was impressed the moment I hired her. She immediately set up a plan to prepping, stage, and market my home. She guided me through the whole process. She arranged for several workers to come to my home. They were all very professional and did excellent work. Her staging team came in and transformed my home. It was amazing. Manel always returned my calls promptly and kept me informed. Through the process, she earned my trust and made the sale of my home seamless. She had a high expectation of the value of my home and we even exceeded that amount. In the end, Manel and her team were outstanding and made me feel as if I were their only client.
We can't find enough words to express how excellent our experience was selling our home through Manel! Her network is so strong & broad that we received multiple offers and accepted within 4 days at the highest value in our neighborhood! She is extremely responsive and knowledgeable. She shows up every single time, no matter how small the matter and she acknowledges and advocates for her client's best interest first. She and her team are technologically savvy and helped move the transaction along seamlessly. Most importantly, she let us voice our concerns and supported our ideas while preparing us for the best and worst case scenarios. Trust the reviews and go with Manel!
I came across Manel when I saw 3 of her For Sale signs in my neighborhood all at the same time. Within a few days, all homes had updated to Sales Pending. I had asked my neighbors how it was working with her, and all their feedback was exceptional. From there, we knew she was the right agent for us. Manel helped us sell our Dublin home 2 weeks before we listed it for sale. She was able to find a buyer in her huge network and we sold off-market. This was amazing for us because we were initially discouraged from selling our home during Covid because of all the foot traffic from open houses. She also negotiated a rent back for us which allowed us an extra 2 months to search for our forever home. Since Manel is in this exclusive email distribution for only top agents in California, she forwarded us the coming soon listing for our forever home before it was available for the general public. Without a doubt, Manel is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. You can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and she aligns herself to all your needs. After three months of working with her, she has never missed my phone call. She is always responsive via email and text messages. She also has a team working behind the scenes for her that is on top of everything. I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Manel. If you are in search of a real estate agent who is compassionate, caring, responsive, experienced, very networked, admired by her peers, and willing to fight for her clients, then Manel is the agent for you!
Manel came highly recommended from friend of ours. So, when we first met Manel, we had that connection right away from beginning to the end. Everything went very smooth, and our experience was very amazing. Whether it's morning or it's evening, she's treating us as we are the only client of her.
The trust was great. She was transparent through the process and also very responsive at the same time. She communicated with us very promptly, whether it was early morning or late night. She made sure, she's available. Manel works from her heart. We are very grateful that we have met Manel. Our experience with her has been amazing.
