Well... Adam was recommended to my husband and I by my sister, who used him to buy a beautiful home in our area. My husband and I have two twin toddlers, and we're in a tricky position with both our budget and our circumstances in selling. Adam handled EVERYTHING...while keeping us at budget for getting market ready. It was honestly an unbelievable experience - we ended up getting an offer well above asking, and when we got the final papers to sign we couldn't believe how easy and seamless the process had been for us as sellers. Adam is by FAR the most grounded, honest, hard working, well-networked, communicative and effective real estate agent we have ever sold with - and that is saying a lot as I have been a part of now 6 home sales over the course of my life. Highly highly recommend - best decision we made.
We just purchased a lot in Novato, CA. We had to do a lot of research in a short space of time. Adam went above and beyond. His knowledge is second to none. Adam took the time to sketch up scenarios, called multiple city departments to get the correct info for us. It was clear that Adams # 1 priority was to get us the lot we wanted with the security that we could build the home we wanted. I cannot recommend Adam highly enough, his customer service is outstanding.
Adam helped us buy our first house earlier this year. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and personable. As first-time buyers, we had a lot of questions (about the process and about owning property in general), and we never felt judged or like we were a nuisance.
We started looking before the pandemic, so it ended up taking over a year for us to find the right home. Adam was patient while we navigated a highly-competitive and inconsistent market. He never tried to influence us on any one property and was genuinely interested in learning about our lifestyle so he could help us find exactly what would be right for us, even if that meant we saw quite a few homes without making an offer.
After getting outbid on the first try, we finally got our offer accepted on the perfect place. Adam helped us make our offer competitive and was able to get the selling agent to adjust the offer date so we would have time to make an offer on another property if it fell through. From there, we had a series of frustrating challenges trying to close. Adam struck the perfect balance of keeping us level-headed and focused while still validating our frustration. He proactively communicated with us, made phone calls with our lender and the selling agent, and was unafraid to push back against some of the absurdities we ran into.
Adam was by our side the whole way though, even after we had the keys in our hands. We love our new home and we're certain that many agents wouldn't have been able to pull it off. We were very lucky to have Adam!
Buying a house is stressful. It's great to have a knowledgeable partner who will hold your hand, offer sound advice, and keep the process moving along when you get discouraged. Adam meets all the criteria for a calm, insightful, resourceful real estate agent. Neither of us had moved in more than 30 years, and during that time we had narrowed our focus on what we wanted next. Adam honored our preferences, eccentricities, and limitations with infinite patience and good humor. He helped guide us toward the best place for us -- a particular challenge since the neighborhood we had selected became hotter and hotter as we looked. Adam was effective in following up on rumors of properties not yet on the market, dealing with negotiations, and handling the paperwork for offers and closings. We highly recommend him.
Adam was phenomenal - we absolutely would not have found our home without him!!! From our first call to the day we closed (and then some, as he's still helping us connect with local contacts to get a few pre-move- in tasks completed), he was there every step of the way. He is extremely resourceful, and very knowledgeable about the different areas and neighborhoods in Novato and Marin County; he took our extensive list of needs and wants, and turned it into a manageable list of properties and answered all of our (many) questions with candor. With each new showing he refined his search criteria, and we could tell he genuinely cared about helping our family get settled in the right home, not just any house. Throughout the process, Adam was very flexible, responsive, optimistic, and fully prepared to handle all the new requirements due to pandemic restrictions. Adam went above and beyond to find us the perfect home, in the exact neighborhood we wanted; we could not have asked for a better agent and we would not hesitate to recommend his services!
Adam worked with my husband and I as we started the search to find our "forever home" earlier this year.
Adam was friendly, knowledgeable, responsive and accommodating throughout the entire process. We first met Adam about a month before the COVID shut down went into effect, and we continued to stay active and in contact with him as the new Real Estate restrictions and challenges were put into place. Adam was able to pivot and keep us informed with upcoming listings and options for virtual viewings as the shelter in place progressed.
Thanks to Adam's diligent and frequent updates, we found a home that we fell in love with and were prepared to place an offer on it as soon as it came on the market, and our offer was accepted! The listing agent for the home we purchased left us a welcome letter when we moved in, and they mentioned in the letter how much they appreciated Adam's respectful and professional demeanor throughout the process.
We could not be happier in our new home, and we are so grateful to Adam for everything he has done to help make this possible. We will absolutely recommend Adam to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell their home!
We owe Adam all the thanks in the world for helping us find and purchase our dream home in north Marin. My wife and I literally could not be happier in our beautiful new home. He was extremely professional, responsive, and knowledgeable throughout the entire process and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thanks again for everything Adam!
Adam is quite simply the best. He's super responsive, honest, knowledgeable and patient. Don't let how nice he is fool you — his negotiating savvy is why you hire him. Adam helped us buy a house in a market where most houses were getting more than 10 offers. When buying hit a snag because of the appraisal, we followed his recommendations on how to handle the messy process which ultimately got us a discount on the purchase price.
We are so thrilled to have Adam as our real estate agent. He is honest, reliable, informative and fun to work with. He helped us find and buy our current home some years ago and we continue to work with him now to explore finding a bigger home and consider selling ours. It is so reassuring to work with Adam! He always answers our questions promptly and with a well-researched, to-the-point response. He knows his markets extremely well and we can't speak highly enough of the value of having a realtor who grew up in the Bay Area. We trust Adam completely and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
We used Adam twice already - once to buy a single family home and once to sell a condo with two units. In both cases he not only concluded the process to our absolute satisfaction but in fact made it a worry free, easy and smooth experience.
It's rare that you find a professional you can trust in a way where you can truly, but I mean truly let go. Our condo sale was complex and we had to avoid many landmines, and yet Adam seemed to always come up with the appropriate advice and strategy.
We cannot recommend Adam enough for your bay area real estate needs.
Adam was awesome. He patiently worked with my brother and I for almost 18 months as we looked for the unusual deal. He was extremely knowledgeable about the local market pricing, tenant's issues, and what properties were coming onto the market.
I plan on using him again and have recommended him to numerous friends. Thanks Adam!
Adam was amazing. He deftly navigated strange schedules, people being out of the country, and odd loan requirements. He did a great job matching properties to our requested characteristics. It was a pleasure working with him and I will be recommending him to friends looking for a home.
As a first time home-buyer, I was a little (ok, a lot) nervous about the home-buying process. Adam walked me through all the steps, patiently answered all my questions, even when I asked them more than once. I felt like I had a true partner and an advocate who was honest, straightforward, and knew his stuff. In the end, Adam helped me make a great personal decision on a house that is my home and a sound financial decision where I got value for my money and am well positioned in the real estate market.
As for his process, here was my experience. And while this may seem obvious, I have heard stories from friends where the basic steps were not done. He started by asking me what I was looking for in a house, what I wanted, what my overall goals were for purchasing a home. He picked out a variety of houses for me to look at, ensured I saw and understood the comps, worked with me to come up with an offer again with comps in hand, and was my advocate during the 'bidding war' for the house that ultimately became mine. His guidance continued during the closing process and he took care of tasks that needed to be done to close on the house, such as coordinating the RECO work. Whenever I have a question, such as understanding my many supplemental property tax bills, I call Adam and he helps me through even though my purchase is finished.
Adam came highly recommended by my brother, whom Adam helped to purchase his house a few years ago. He is extremely professional and has a thorough understanding of the real estate business. When he agrees to represent you, he is committed to making sure that you are happy with the outcome of your search and does everything in his power to help you get the house you want.
I was a first-time buyer and Adam spent as much time as I needed to explain in any amount of detail that I needed, for every step of the process. He was kind and respectful, always asking if I needed more time, more explanation, more visits to the house and never talked down to me. Friendly, caring, honest, committed, thorough, thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable , with excellent communication skills, and willing to go the extra mile to be sure that my house deal was the best that I could get, he could not have done a better job. He made the process painless in all areas where he had the power to do so.
A while ago Adam represented me when I sold this same house and again, he was marvelous! He gave me just the right amount of help in understanding how to stage it and what I needed to do to make it stand out. It sold within 10 days for $40K above the asking price!
Adam deserves the very best of clients because he is the very best of brokers.
I had a very difficult time finding a place in SF where bids kept going up and up. He is very knowledgeable. Adam was able to scour the market and orchestrated the best possible deal. He was supportive when I was discouraged and walked me through every detail in the process. I would call him to represent me again in a heartbeat.
Adam helped me purchase my first home when I was 19 years old, without a co-signer. Adam exercised extraordinary patience throughout the entire process, was detailed, and very responsive to my questions.
After Adam gets an idea of what you're looking for, his recommendations show his excellent judgement and are not outside of your set budget.
Adam was well connected and knew the right mortgage professionals to get me all of the down payment help I needed. Four years later, the home has almost doubled in value which I am very happy about.
Adam helped my brother and I find and purchase a three-unit building in 2012. We were both first-time buyers, and Adam was extremely informative and helpful throughout the entire process.
He was also very patient with us, learning out preferences and price point, and catering to our requirements.
Adam constantly had our best interest in mind, and helped us creatively approach each real estate opportunity.
I would highly recommend Adam to friends and family looking for a dependable, fair, knowledgeable, well-connected real estate professional.
Adam helped us purchase our first home, which was a challenge at first, but we're still at our home. 5 years later we worked with him again to sell our condos at the right time and we got the price that we wanted. In addition to that, he gave us good advice on staging. Everything went smooth. I will definitely use him again should we need to sell or purchase a new home.
It is with pleasure that we recommend Adam Watts for your real estate needs. We worked with Adam on the purchase of our first home. Adam always made himself available to answer questions, show us homes and provide advice. Adam could very well have been a doctor, because he certainly has patience. His deep knowledge of the real estate market put us at ease and ensured that we were always competitive when bidding. We first met Adam while he was the listing agent hosting an open house for a local property. His warm smile and inviting personality made us feel like we were entering our new home. From beginning to end, he was our guiding light. We highly recommend Adam Watts.
We worked with Adam to find our current home in Walnut Creek. With his help, we found an amazing home -- the home we'll raise our kids in -- and managed to get it in a highly competitive situation.
Adam is everything you'd want in a partner in finding a home -- knowledgeable, direct, and collaborative.
Adam bought and later sold my first home for me. I was so happy with him that I again used him to look for a new home recently. Adam was always honest and very patient with me. I am a hard person to please but Adam definitely surpassed my expectations. I have referred him to many of my friends who have also been very happy with his services.
Adam helped me buy my first property in 2008 after I had spent many years looking and always not making the move for different excuses.
I am very grateful to him for making me comfortable, by his knowledge, dedication and patience.
This was the best thing I did and he was a huge part of it, and with his great personality a real pleasure working with him.
There are good agents out there with skills and talent, and if you are in search of one, I definitely recommend him.
Adam has represented my wife and I in three real estate transactions. We value his knowledge and service he provides. His professionalism is a plus when I refer friends to him. He is the first person I call when we are looking for buying a house or selling one.
Adam is a great realtor. He is trustworthy, reliable, personable and always professional. My husband and I met Adam and we were instantly comfortable with his demeanor and knowledge of the neighborhoods. We worked with him in purchasing our home in Crocker Highlands and he helped me sell my condo. Adam went the extra mile to put together a beautiful brochure of my condo and we sold it quickly.
During the purchase process, he took us to many homes and neighborhoods and he understood what we were looking for. We are so fortunate to have found our house and we would definitely recommend and use Adam again.
Adam has been a good resource in his area of expertise for a very long time. I always appreciate his insights. Furthermore, while we specialize in commercial, we don't do single family, so we have felt good sending our Home clients to him.
I’ve used Adam to assist me with the purchase of my primary home and a rental property. He also was of enormous benefit when I sold my custom built home for top price. Adam gave me counsel and great advice during the negotiations with the seller. He also assisted my daughter and her husband in both the sale and purchase of a home in Oakland and my nephew with the sale of his home in SF and the purchase of a home in Walnut Creek. Adam is a true professional with excellent marketing and negotiation skills. I would highly recommend Adam for anyone whether buyer or seller and anywhere in the Bay Area.
Adam Watts helped us purchase and sell our homes in Oakland. With his attention to detail, commitment to his clients and vast knowledge of real estate, he is the best we have ever dealt with. Adam is thorough, respectful, and willing to go above and beyond to help a client get what they want. With his knowledge of construction and home building practices, and his expertise on home inspections, and the common issues found in older homes, such as foundation & seismic retrofitting, old wiring, old furnaces, buyers and sellers alike are able to make sound decision and ensure happiness for years to come.
I’ve worked with Adam on several transactions over the last decade. He’s the consummate professional and always takes the time to understand our family’s needs, whether it’s our personal home or an investment property. The information he provides is well researched and he always goes the extra mile to protect our best interests. I highly recommend him and will keep going back to him for all our real estate needs.
Adam was very responsive to all inquires and provided pertinent information on properties. He brought print-outs and statistics on each property when touring the house. He gets back to you promptly and gives you undivided attention. And there was no pressure to purchase a property during the sale process. He makes you feel comfortable and answers all your questions.
What can I say about a realtor who sticks with a buyer for nearly 3 years of a home search in a very tough, competitive buyers market? Adam has the patience of a Saint! :-) Always immediately responsive and available to drive over the bridge from SF to show me properties at a moment’s notice. Not only did he help us find the perfect house, but also found us the perfect financing. I'm so grateful that Adam stuck with us throughout this long journey! I felt confident in Adam's professional advice and friendship the entire way.
Adam is courteous, prompt, hardworking and hustles on your behalf. He has worked with our family several times and we will continue working with him in the future.
We've been working with Adam for more than a decade buying and selling homes. I really appreciate that I can trust his judgement and his ability to close a deal quickly and most importantly with our best interest.
Through the years, he has not only been our broker, but I’m also glad to say that he's also our friend.
Adam is a consummate professional. He has a level of expertise in the SF Bay Area market that has always exceeded my expectations whether it's dealing with "tough" buyers and issues closing a deal, selling a lot in a tough market, providing excellent advice from the sell/buy perspective on investment opportunities or a home to live in. The list goes on.... Adam has always been one who is respectful/respected and works hard to look out for his client’s interests. He truly embodies what a real estate broker should bring to the table.
Adam has found several properties as well as sold a property for me. He is courteous, punctual, knowledgeable, trustworthy and determined to find the best property at the best price for his clients. He is an excellent and convincing negotiator. One of the properties that he sold for me was to an extremely difficult buyer. He handled all the demands professionally and was able to close the deal cleanly. I told him repeatedly to just give up on the buyer and put the property back on the market, but with determination and calm, he is able to pull the deal through at my asking price. He has on many occasions given me excellent advice solely for my benefit even though the result is not necessarily beneficial to him personally. I recommend Adam Watts highly for anyone who needs a reliable, trustworthy and experienced realtor.
Adam put together a list of what my wife and I wanted when buying our first home and prioritized making our dreams into a reality rather than just "making the sale." There were several other properties that we looked at and Adam's guidance helped us to stay on track with our goals and we are still happily living in that house today.
As an attorney, I take referrals very seriously. I have always found Adam to be professional, timely and very knowledgeable. His meticulousness and prompt attention are critical. Based on the track record of people I have referred to Adam, I’ll be glad to refer to him again.
Adam is professional, friendly, responsive, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. He helped us purchase our first home in San Francisco. He was very good at sending over properties that matched exactly what we were looking for (budget, size, feel) – but also sometimes would send things that were a little outside our parameters but that he thought we would find interesting – It was very helpful to understand the real estate landscape of San Francisco and refine our criteria. He’s good at summarizing the strength and weaknesses of each place but remaining neutral/objective to let you make your own opinion. His calm and confident, yet friendly, demeanor puts you at ease. He made the process of understanding all the paperwork and contracts of a home purchase smooth. His instincts in terms of the bidding process are spot on - critical for the SF market. Finally, his negotiation skills are excellent (he got the seller to agree to cover upcoming costs beyond anything we would have hoped for or known to ask). Adam always had our best interest at heart and we had complete trust in him.
Adam is excellent. He was an invaluable resource to us throughout our home search, and ultimately ensured that we got the exact house we wanted! Adam has an extremely positive attitude. He is patient, understanding, and his interests are fully aligned with the buyer. We highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for real estate in SF!
Would recommend Adam very highly as he is a pleasure to work with. He is very personable, highly knowledgeable, reliable, accountable, and understood my needs. It was great working with him during real estate negotiations as he and I were a great team together. Without hesitation, I would have to say he is one of the best real estate agents in San Francisco.
Adam is awesome! We have used him for four transactions so far, one very complex. He was outstanding.
I would like to thank you both personally for selling the unit. It's amazing that you guys achieved such a high bid! Time to celebrate!
You and Zumra were professional in the unit's timely online marketing, decoration, and the generation of competitive bids. I found communication with you both easy and informative, and always had the feeling that things were progressing forward. You were also willing to give me hard-hitting and clear advice, which was likely crucial in selling the unit. Much of your recommendations ran counter to my intuition, so thank you for being so forthright. You were also able to distill down the unit's complicated background to prospective buyers, who could have easily gotten side-tracked by the overabundance of legal tangles.
Thank you for your professionalism, and I would gladly recommend your services to others. Feel free to reach out when you need a recommendation from me, and I will keep you in mind if anyone else asks me for a real estate agent. This is by far the best experience I have had in a real estate transaction, so thank you again.
