Testimonials from Lucinda's Clients


We cannot say enough good things about Lucinda Layton and her knowledge of the real estate market, her professionalism and endless tenacity. Lucinda helped us purchase a vacation home over 17 years ago so I knew who to call immediately when we had to sell our father’s home. It was in the middle of the pandemic, it involved three children (one out of town) and tons of complicated estate issues. She immediately hopped on board and sold the home in three days. She had multiple interested parties before it even made it to the multiple listings. She got an exceptional price for the home and did ALL the paperwork and coordination for us. When you lose a parent it’s hard enough to deal with the loss and it was so soothing to have Lucinda take care of all of us and the intricate details required. We are now looking for a new house for us and are excited to work with Lucinda again to find the perfect home. We would highly recommend Lucinda to anyone wanting a partner in your real estate search.

Lucinda did a fantastic job with listing and selling a family owned duplex. She worked with our tenants in getting the units ready for showing and calmed their worries about having strangers walking through their homes. She handled everything calmly and professionally. The home was sold quickly and above asking price. My sister and I were beyond satisfied and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

- Loretta Marchetti, Duplex owner in Mountain View


Lucinda first helped us buy our current home in 2017. We had found a few properties online that we were interested in touring. Before we could tour any of the properties, Lucinda found out one of the homes received 3 offers and that the owners were going to accept an offer that night. She informed us we needed to act quickly if we were interested in this property. She and I dropped everything to go see the property in person. I got back home at 5:30pm, had the offer to sign from Lucinda by 8:30pm, and received a call at 11:00pm that our offer had been accepted. She made the entire whirlwind experience very easy and she set us up for success because of her guidance. We highly recommend Lucinda to help you buy your dream home.

When it comes to Real Estate, you need three things in an agent--someone who 1) is knowledgeable, 2) has a killer work ethic, and 3) is always in your corner representing your interests. Lucinda is the jackpot of real estate agents. She knows so much about bay area real estate and is incredibly responsive. My husband and I have used her to purchase a condo, sell that condo, and purchase a home in the bay area. We were able to secure our dream home well under list price. She is probably one of the most personable people I have ever met and uses that to negotiate the best price for you. I would recommend her to any friend--she is someone you can trust, and that is priceless.

 - David and Melissa Stringer, Homeowners in Belmont


With Lucinda's help we were able to sell our property quickly and with multiple offers. We ended up selling for above asking price. We appreciated her professionalism and experience in getting us the best possible price for our property.

 - Gisella Thelen, Duplex owner in Mountain View



I went into my second home purchase with some trepidation. My first experience had been a trying one where I drover everything and my real estate agent sat back and earned a commission. This experience was totally different!!! Lucinda took the time to listen to what I was looking for and always presented me with viable options, meeting my needs and within my price range. Though there were multiple offers on my house, she had ingenious ideas on how to present the offer that I would still contend is the reason I live where I live today. I was impressed by her knowledge of the process, organizational skills, identify next steps, and I trusted her completely. The next time I buy or sell a home, Lucinda will be the FIRST person I call.

 - Leigh Ann Gump, Homeowner in San Jose



It was such a pleasure to work with Lucinda. We knew she was the right real estate agent for us because when we told her about the qualities of our dream home, she actually listened and took notes!!! She is prompt, attentive, responsive, and professional yet does everything with graciousness and a smile. She offers advice that is wise and fair-minded. For example, she helped us formulate an offer package so superior to all the competitors that we were able to buy our dream home. Even though the home buying process can be so confusing, she guides us through with confidence and expertise. Human relationships are important to us, in business and in life. We respect Lucinda tremendously and trust her completely. We know that the friends and families we refer to Lucinda will be in good hands and will achieve their dreams.

Lucinda – We were pleased with the offer / sale price. “Perfect” describes your efforts in this matter. It is easy to understand why you are good at your chosen profession.

 - Thomas and Dr. Christine Tyrie, Homeowners in San Jose


Janice and I both agree that your advice about when to sell and for how much to list our home was instrumental in our receiving far more than our list price. We are pleased to say that our condo sold for a lot more than any other in our complex. My wife was especially pleased with your attention to detail. Keep up the excellent work.

 - Dr. Colle and Janice Hunt, Homeowners in San Jose


We had a house listed in San Leandro for almost 3 months. it was priced right and in excellent condition. We didn’t receive any offers. Even though Lucinda was headquartered in San Jose, she assured us she could sell the house quickly. She made several suggestions for improvements to the landscaping and within a few days several offers were made. We sold the house for more than the asking price, closed within 30 days, and we were amazed at her professionalism. We are buying another property in San Jose and she is going far beyond just being a buyer’s agent. She is coordinating improvements to the property and getting all    the bids for the work. An outstanding real estate agent!

-  Dorothy Arthur, Homeowner in San Leandro


Our house was on the market for several months. When it expired, we got a call from Lucinda. We interviewed and hired her to sell our home. Lucinda made the difference by identifying what needed to be done to get our home sold. Since then, we’ve worked with Lucinda on two home purchases. She was extremely detail-oriented and always follows through. We wouldn’t buy anything without Lucinda, period!

 - Cinderella Lee and Gilbert Leung, Homeowners in South San Francisco


Lucinda assisted me in selling my house and simultaneously buying a townhome, and I was astounded at her amazing organizational skills and ability to drive me through this complicated process. Her stellar marketing skills and unbelievable professionalism, without a doubt, are what made my house sale as lucrative and (seemingly to me) effortless as it was.

 - Margarita Gomez, Homeowner in Willow Glen



Without hesitation, I have found my Realtor for life...never have I had a home-buying process go so smooth. In a time when the stress and anxiety levels are high, there is something about Lucinda that just automatically let’s you know everything will be ok.

 - Shari Rubino, Homeowner in San Jose


Lucinda helped us find our first new home, and it couldn’t have been easier. She led us step-by-step and answered any and all questions we had. When I tell my friends how easy it was for us to find our home and go through the process of buying it, they are amazed. With Lucinda’s help, we found our home the very first time we went looking! She did her homework and knew what we liked, even more than we did! We never would have found our house without her. She made the process easy and fun!

 - Ed and Kris Caggiani, Homeowners in Cambrian


Buying a home is a frightening process for first time home buyers. But Lucinda and her team made sense out of it and actually do the hard parts for you, making the process a breeze. I have since passed her card to friends. After speaking with her, they’re now using her services as well.

 - Tony and Rani Bandermann, Homeowners in Blossom Valley


Thank you for your knowledge of the areas, your ability to separate the wheat from the chaff to avoid wasting time looking at the wrong properties and your professionalism in dealing with all of the individuals we met along the way. I would be very comfortable recommending you to anyone that is going through the home buying or selling process.

 - Scott Lockard, Homeowner in Los Gatos


It was a pleasure working with Lucinda Layton, who helped me find my dream home, per my stringent requirements. I believe Lucinda represented me very well during the entire house hunting process and I strongly recommend her.

 - Neel Dhamdhere, Homeowner in Sunnyvale


You were brilliant, especially dealing with the lender!!!

 - Art and Jennifer Hall, Homeowners in San Jose


We bought our house from 3000 miles away. Lucinda managed the process and the negotiations on our behalf. We ended up paying less than our maximum price despite the over-heated market. Lucinda walked us through the process from A-Z and we were kept informed every step of the way. As first-time home buyers, we really appreciated her help.

 - Daniel and Melissa Shefer, Homeowners in San Mateo


Lucinda is an exceptional Realtor. She did a phenomenal job as my Agent. I would definitely use her again.    

 - Patty Parkin, Homeowner in River Oaks Village

Lucinda is a great service provider. Profoundly knowledgeable in both real estate and accounting fields, she provides a broad scope of work that takes into account much more than just a narrow aspect of her customer’s needs. She is trustworthy, consistent, and reliable. Great value for the money.

 - Peter Misich, Homeowner in Mountain View


Lucinda made buying our first home in Silicon Valley easy. She understood what we were looking for and she ensured our offer was successful. I would recommend Lucinda to other home buyers.

 - Linda Swan, Homeowner in River Oaks Village


Prior to our recent move, we lived in Villagio in River Oaks, a townhome complex for 13 years. During that time, we saw Lucinda successfully selling home after home. Beyond that, we also saw her interacting with our community, answering questions asked by homeowners, and providing useful information. We were always impressed with the professional way she always did this. So, when it came time to sell our townhouse, we interviewed her and decided to work with here as our real estate agent. From the very first meeting she was ready to go. She had researched the local market and came to us with a plan of attack. She always provided her insights about how to prepare the townhouse for sale but never pressured us to do things we weren’t ready to do. We put our house on sale on a Friday morning, and the following Monday we were choosing from multiple offers. Lucinda did an excellent job of guiding us through the process and we would heartily recommend her to others.

 - Jay Perry, Homeowner in River Oaks Village


Lucinda is an extraordinary Realtor! Her unique approach to real estate marketing along with thorough research on all aspects of the transaction makes her the best Realtor I’ve ever worked with.

 - Kelly Herrick, Homeowner in Los Gatos


Lucinda, you went above and beyond on our behalf and we can’t thank you enough. Betty [deceased homeowner] would have been thrilled with the way you handled the sale of her home.

 - Bruce and Susan Davidson, Homeowners in Sunnyvale


We thought your services were wonderful. Buying a home was always scary to us because #1, we’d never done it before and #2, we’re unfamiliar with all of the real estate “lingo” that happens. Working with you was a dream. You always kept us in the loop as far as what was happening with the transaction. You were always available to us when we had any questions and always responded to us in a quick manner whether it was by email or by telephone. Also, you kept in contact with us even after our home buying process was finished. Furthermore, when disaster struck and our condo flooded, you were one of the first ones to come over and offer to help. I think that says a lot about how you value your clients. We’d jump at the chance to work with you again and would refer any personal contacts to you for future real estate services. Honestly, we can’t thank you enough. As first-time home buyers and educators in Silicon Valley, buying a h house for us seemed out of reach. That changed when we worked with you. You made it happen for us and for that we are extremely thankful.

 - Scott and Rebecca Kroes, Homeowners in San Jose


I was a first-time home buyer and had worked with 2 previous agents when I was referred to Lucinda. She said she wanted the opportunity to show me how a first-time home buyer should be treated, and she did. I was petrified at the thought of being a homeowner, but she walked me through each step with confidence, reassurance, and impeccable professionalism. She got to know me, understood my likes and dislikes, and picked out the perfect home for me. I felt like I was her only client and that she always had my best interest at heard. Needless to say, I would actually look forward to my next home purchase and the opportunity to work with Lucinda again.

 - Anonymous, Homeowner in San Jose


Working with Lucinda was a very positive experience. Her professionalism and enthusiasm helped us to sell our house quickly for a great price. We would welcome the opportunity to work with her again and would highly recommend her.
