Is it time to sell your home? Many questions may need to be answered before you are ready to make that decision.
- How do we know what price to ask?
- What do we have to do to get our home ready for sale?
- Do we need to do inspections?
- How quickly can we sell at this time of year?
- Will we be able to find a home to move to if we sell in this market?
- How do we find a real estate agent who puts our needs first?
These questions and many more will come up in most transactions, and that is why you need an agent who will listen to your concerns and work closely with you to get the best deal and give you all the help you need through every step of the process.
What can make the difference in a competitive market is your agent’s understanding of the values, negotiation skills and relationships with other agents, service professionals, title processes and lenders to give you the upper hand. You need someone who is on your side.

What our clients say about working with CJ Brasiel
“We hired CJ as our realtor in 2014. She helped us sell our current home and then buy a new one in Mountain View, CA. The challenge with this process was that there wasn’t much time once we sold our home to then turn around and buy a new one in a hot neighborhood where homes were going $+++ above listing.
CJ came to us as a referral from a family friend, and we were VERY glad we put our trust in her hands.
1st and foremost, CJ cared about our family. It was not just a transaction to her. She was there from the beginning, when we had to prep our home for sale, to the end of the process when we closed on our new home at the title company, and even afterwards when we had to do some fix-ups to the new home.
We appreciated that CJ listened to our needs—what we needed out of our current home, what we needed out of our new home: commute, school system, size, etc…and of course, executing on a timeline.
CJ was very patient, and supportive. She will go as fast or as slow as you need.
CJ was very responsive. We were always able to reach her when we needed to talk.
CJ provided us with very sound advice during the entire process, backed by detailed data from various sources.
On the home sale, we felt that we not only got an excellent price but also excellent terms—i.e. CJ managed to get us ample rent back to give us the necessary time to buy a new home. CJ worked behind the scene with the seller agents so that when we got the 1st offer, it was the right offer and no back and forth was necessary. In fact, we didn’t even have a weekend open house.
Lastly, imagine staying at a 5-star hotel in the penthouse suite. It’s like that with CJ. She will make sure you are taken care of. And her real estate fees are very competitive, compared to other agents in the bay area, particularly those from the big-named firms.
Bottom line, you won’t go wrong if you pick CJ. Buying/selling a home is a very stressful process and you want a pro in your corner. Good luck with your real estate experience.”
CJ Brasiel is the House Whisperer. Like no one I’ve ever met, she gets houses and the people they have relationships with. And I mean that exactly how I wrote it:
She gets what houses mean to people, and she will get what your house means to you.
She knows the real estate market, in fact, more about it than most -she understands it and she likes it. That is a killer combination if you’re going to sell your house -not just put it on the market, but sell it.
In not the best of times, actually, one of the worst of times ever, and in a very bleak real estate market, bleaker economy and my own challenging financial situation, CJ Brasiel sold my house ‘ one I owned and lived in and loved for sixteen years for it’s full asking price, in a month, while I engaged in some other life changing adventures! And, I remained sane and sanguine throughout the whole process.
And, there’s more – there really is: CJ is a serious green technology enthusiast, and makes incredible use of the internet, paperless and journeyless business transactions and cell phones to stay very connected. I knew where we were with every step of the process, I was as involved as I wanted and needed to be to be comfortable, including knowing that we were acting responsibly in terms of our use of paper, money, time, and energy. Things moved right along.
The whole process, from the moment CJ arrived at my house for our first meeting, through inspections and staging and showing, to the negotiations, to the check in the bank, it was a win-win situation for everyone. And the few glitches along the way (there had to be, it’s a complex process with a lot of people cycling through), were so minor as to be more curious and amusing, than really bothersome.
So, if and when your going to sell your house, CJ Brasiel is the person you want to do it with. She is the House Whisperer. And she is a really cool person, too.
“I would highly recommend CJ Brasiel to anyone looking to sell or buy a home without hesitation or reservation. CJ made selling my town home a completely painless experience, especially since this was my first time selling a home and I was working out of state during much of the sale process.
Enough cannot be said about the great communication I had with CJ which was every bit as important to me as the transaction itself. CJ walked me through every step of the sale and kept me informed throughout the entire process – she really was my agent in every sense of the word and I am forever grateful for her help!”
“CJ helped us sell our home in San Jose, California. She impressed us right away with her research and professionalism. She was honest and supportive throughout the entire process of the sale of our home.
Despite some unexpected challenges with our sale, CJ was able to help us keep the process going and we are pleased with the results.
We highly recommend CJ to anybody who is looking for an experienced, knowledgable and hard working real estate agent.

I met CJ in June when she listed my house. I liked her immediately because she is so open and eager to make selling a house a good experience. She told me when we first met that she would get the best price for me. It was way more than I expected. She answered every question I had, explained every detail, sometimes more than once and was very patient, and made sure I totally understood the process. She followed through on everything and made sure that I felt comfortable with the whole process. She is very caring and thoughtful. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their house.
When it became necessary to sell our house at a very difficult time in the real estate market, we interviewed a number of realtors and selected CJ. We have never been sorry. She viewed us as people and just not a number with a house to sell. She took the time to get to know us personally, and to understand our problems and plans.
When it became necessary to move out of state she took responsibility to oversee the house and keep it up to quality for showing. When inspections showed places where work was needed she contacted the artisans and oversaw the work, personally being there to make sure all work was done to her high standards.
She kept in touch with us on a daily basis and kept us apprised of the state of our sale. When things were looking bleak she participated with us in developing strategies to make the sale occur.
CJ is very tech savvy and keeps up with the latest developments on the Internet to fully expose your house to as wide an audience as possible.
She has become a confidant and friend, and you cannot find a person who works harder, is more energetic, and with the highest of ethics to make sure your dreams come true.
