"We were fortunate enough to be represented by Rebecca in both the purchase of our Telegraph Hill townhome and its sale three years later. Rebecca worked with us to develop a strategy tailored to the condition of our unit, the neighborhood and recent disappointing comps in our complex. She brought us invaluable information about upcoming competing listings with many more upgrades and better views than ours. ...

"We first came in contact with Rebecca in 2013 and were impressed by the caliber of homes she showed, and her clear professionalism and high standards. For the past two years we have followed Rebecca’s work, and when we decided to put our home on the market in July, the decision to use her as our agent was an easy one.

"Rebecca recently managed the sale of our family home in the Marina District. The bottom line with Rebecca is that she combines total professionalism with total humanness, humor and actual relational skills. On the professionalism side, her knowledge of real estate, her track record selling it, and project management skills are unsurpassed. In complex real estate transactions, the ability to project manage is a must, but it...

"Rebecca brought me the opportunity to purchase my first home – a privately listed gem that I had fallen instantly and deeply in love with. She was the ideal guide for me, always coming from a place of client service.

"I can’t imagine a better experience with a realtor than what we just experienced with Rebecca Schumacher and Sotheby’s International Realty. For my sister, Arlene, and me the decision to sell our Cow Hollow family home with over 60 years of memories within its walls was a choice filled with emotion. Having Rebecca as our agent meant that we were represented by a person who was very sensitive...
John Monteverdi, Forensic Meteorologist, Severe Storm Research
"When it was time for me, as trustee of the estate, to sell my late brother’s beautiful home in Monterey Heights, I needed a realtor who was thoroughly familiar with the City’s fine properties and current market. It also had to be someone I could trust and count on given that I don’t live in the City. Rebecca was an amazing resource for everything we needed to...
Lynn Cole, Department of Justice
"Having purchased and sold five homes in my life, I will say that choosing Karen to represent me was by far the best possible choice I could have made. She went above and beyond what I ever expected in a Real Estate Agent. Personal attention to detail was evident during each phase of selling my property in San Francisco. Karen knew the market and helped me list my home...

"We really appreciate everything you did to help us get a great return on our home. The move [back East] was a bit overwhelming and we had so much to worry about, it was wonderful to know we didn’t have to worry about the sale process too. This has been one of the most professional interactions of my life and we will be sure to tell everyone we...

"As an entrepreneur, I know that success takes more than hard work. It takes the courage to be honest under all circumstances, and the understanding that sometimes you just can't take ‘no’ for an answer. Rebecca Schumacher is a lot like me — driven to succeed, and thoroughly committed to her clients. She's got the grit and wits to win in any situation. That's why I've used her to...

"When it came time to sell our San Francisco property, we turned to the one realtor we knew would get results. Rebecca is an absolute gem — she is a smart, perceptive business person with incredible attention to detail plus an amazing aesthetic sensibility.

We hope to remain in touch with you and Guido for many...

"Good things come in three's….Professionalism and Competency add up to Success, and with Rebecca Schumacher we received all three.

"Angela and I have engaged Rebecca both as buyers and sellers - she and her staff are the best in the business. Rebecca’s professionalism, attention to detail, timely response and familiarity with City and California regulations are second to none. But wait - that’s just for openers. Rebecca’s real value is her knowledge of and contacts in the local market. We had invaluable opportunities to see many properties as well...
John Grauel, CEO/Chairman - Retired, Taarcom Inc.
"One thing that impressed us about Rebecca was how accessible she was for us. It's nearly impossible not to get a hold of her. She is the only Realtor that I've ever dealt with that completely had her A game on. From the strategy, to follow up calls, to the sell, close and finally the wonderful post sale lunch she hosted, Rebecca's incredible. I've experienced many Realtors on both coasts and no one comes close."

"After decades in our Marina home, we were ready to downsize. We knew Rebecca as a neighbor, and were impressed with how she presented her listings and herself. What we came to learn during the very successful sale of our home was her fabulous work ethic, impeccable taste, compassion and patience. Her Sotheby's connections brought us the perfect buyer without having to endure public open houses. All this made...
Noreen and Marv Pheffer, Active & enthusiastic residents of San Francisco
"Having been an active, successful real estate agent for many years in two states, I knew from careful observation at open houses and from studying her website and her listing materials, that Rebecca Schumacher would be the agent I would want. When we recently decided to sell our Marina home, we still interviewed two other agents, but Rebecca's unparallelled knowledge of the Marina area and her...

"We don't have enough superlatives for our experience working with Karen Diemoz and the Schumacher Team. Our transaction was extremely smooth. We have had enough experiences buying & selling real estate to know that no transaction is without hiccups, so the fact that it appeared so seamless was entirely due to Karen's relentless attention and follow-up. On a personal note, she is a genuine and upbeat person with an...
Mollie Fucilla, Buyer & Seller
"Our home, an extensively remodeled condo, was a special place to us for 19 years. Rebecca and her team understood and appreciated the details and beauty of our renovations and were able to use these attributes to personalize the marketing of our unit. We received multiple offers, all over the asking price, and the unit sold within a week of putting it on the market. The entire...
