"We had a great home buying experience, which was no doubt linked to the fact that we were working with Max and Laurence at Access Homes.
My partner and I were living in San Francisco and we decided that we wanted to leave the City and move to the Berkeley Hills, where we could get a larger home and enjoy the tranquility that the area had to offer.
Both Max and Laurence were wonderful with accommodating our busy schedules and taking us across the bay to view various open houses. As this was the first California home purchase for the two of us, they explained the purchasing process and helped relieve the associated stress. They provided great advice and were always resourceful and available to answer questions.
When it came to making the offer on our new home, the two of them helped us make informed decisions - from explaining detailed and often lengthy reports to pointing out items to consider and look out for. They worked around the clock to put together the offer and ended up negotiating the inclusion of the empty lot next door as part of the purchase price.
Finally, in addition to being true professionals who always kept a positive attitude, they were also fun to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home around the Bay."

"My experience with both Max and Laurence was very positive.
Since this was my first time selling a house, I was a bit worried on how much to spend, what to remodel, and the needed steps in order to sell the house.
Both Max and Laurence were a tremendous help. I was surprised by how much both Max and Laurence jumped in. From helping getting contractors, to working on design recommendations, getting paint color, etc.
Never had a realtor who went so far nor have I've heard of one go that far.
What I really liked about Max and Laurence is the positive attitude they kept throughout the process. In addition, they are as if on call 24 x 7. Its as if I could call them at anytime.
Great guys, with great attitudes. I will be using them again."

"Max & Laurence helped me buy my first house. They were simply great... and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I got a place that had the size, location, and view that I wanted and couldn't be happier!!
Max & Laurence are extremely reliable and responsive whenever you need something. Whether it was showing a property or readying paperwork for an offer, they could always be counted on. They helped me through every step of process from writing a cover letter to finding great deal on mortgage and insurance and so on.
They really did make the process as easy and painless as possible for me. I was able to obtain my dream house after only making a few offers in ultra competitive San Francisco real estate market. I know I will keep in touch with Max and Laurence for a long time. And I cannot thank them more for their help in process.
Definitely 5 out of 5 stars for access homes and Max and Laurence... they are the best!"

"Max and Laurence of Access Homes were a great help in our first home search. We started looking for a place last year but gave up after a while and decided to stop looking. The two of them were always patient in our home search and certainly did not pressure us into buying anything, but were more than happy to take us around town showing us places.
It was also great that Max knew the ins and outs of contract negotiation. I think we got a pretty good deal.
Both Max and Laurence are very responsive to emails and calls and usually got back to my emails in an hour or less.
Overall a good experience and I would recommend Access Homes to others."
