Testimonials

Last summer, with the expert counsel of Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria and Perry Vittoria, we sold our San Leandro home for way over the asking price. Given their sterling reputation we certainly expected professionalism, but what we got resided in a whole other universe. Through the thickets of staging, multiple offers, and our own needs and desires after living in our home for thirty years, Tianne and Perry guided us with patience, knowledge, warmth, and humor. We would not have expected such dedication and strength of character in the real estate business, and our only regret is that we could not take them with us to Reno!

When it was time for my husband and I to look for a home to buy, we immediately thought of Perry. Perry truly earned every dollar of his commission! We searched and searched for the right house for us. With limited inventory on the market, there were several times where we were willing to settle for a less-than-perfect house. Perry assured us that if we could wait… the right house would come along for us. Perry said he had never sold a house to anyone where they weren’t totally excited about the house, and he wanted it to be perfect for us. Perry could have easily let us settle and cashed in a commission check months earlier, but it was important to Perry that we found the perfect home, and we did! We love our house, and we’re forever grateful that Perry was persistent in finding our forever home.”

From a client’s perspective, very few realtors master each of the many obstacles to successful, stress-free home sales and purchases. Perry and Tianne at Rinetti Realtors are among the few.

Whether it was gauging market conditions for optimal pricing and time of sale, suggesting cost effective improvements for highest sale return, evaluating inspections, negotiating contracts, beautifully staging the property to sell, or targeting homes we could purchase to achieve our particular living desires, Perry and Tianne work tirelessly on our behalf. Perry and Tianne easily adapted to our personalities and to our desired involvement in the process. They timely answered our questions and explained the process in advance of each step, eliminating unnecessary anxiety we otherwise may have had. Simply, Tianne and Perry delivered everything they said they would at our first meeting. As important, the entire experience was fun and enjoyable – yes fun and enjoyable! Given the stress inherent in home purchases and sales, these qualities cannot be underestimated.

Having worked with Perry and Tianne to sell two homes and also to purchase a home, I recommend them to anyone interested in maximizing the return on their home sale and/or finding a perfect new home!”

I worked with Tianne and Perry to sell my high-end home in the Castlewood neighborhood in Pleasanton in early 2016 and I can say that from start to finish it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home. Not only did they do an amazing job in staging and listing my home online, they were always available to me and walked me through every step of the process while offering their wise counsel when it came time to evaluate and accept an offer. They are technically and design savvy in a way that is not always common in this field and their personal warm style of working will put you at ease during the very stressful process of selling your home. I can’t say enough good things about them.”

Perry and team were great to work with when we sold our house; very smooth and easy process!”

Tianne and Perry were an absolute pleasure to work with. They made what could be a stressful time a smooth transition in a professional way. Tianne works magic when it comes to staging your home or giving you suggestions to get ready to sell. I would absolutely recommend Tianne and Perry 100%”

Carrie Miles was an amazing real estate agent to work with. She helped us on both a purchase and a sale. She went above and beyond. We were out of state, and she organized everything. Made suggestions for contractors, which were all excellent to work with. She followed through on everything, always quick to respond to my many questions:) We can not recommended her enough!!!!”

I must say unequivocally that Dave Adams is the epitome of a real estate professional. We found ourselves in need to sell a home after the death of a parent. A friend of a relative referred Dave to us and upon our first meeting knew we had to look no further. He was instrumental in helping us navigate the local real estate market despite our living on the other side of the country.

In this digital age where we are encouraged and directed to perform self-service it was surprising and reassuring that he took the time and made the effort to engage personally at every opportunity. Technology has many benefits, particularly when you are time zones away, so e-mail, texts, online postings, etc. are valuable, but personal engagement and trust cannot be automated and Dave clearly knows that.

Dave provided us with the full service solution we needed. Never pushy or pressuring, he provided us with real options and valuable tools.

He called when he said he would. He proactively sent texts and e-mails to keep us apprised of the open house schedules, receipt of offers, appraisals, inspections and so on. Dave even met movers at the house because they could only come after we had left town.

Simply put, he was amazing to work with and I would encourage anyone in need of a realtor to stop looking and call Dave. We are grateful for his kindness, understanding, patience and expertise.”

To Whom It May Concern:

Regarding Carrie Miles@ Rinetti & Co. Realtors

Recently we found ourselves in need of the services of a real estate company in San Leandro. Since Rinetti & Co. has been in San Leandro for many years, we opted to call them and use their company. Our recent experience having Carrie Miles of Rinetti & Co. sell a house for us on Bridge Rd. in San Leandro was the best choice we could have ever made. Her friendliness, professionalism, and go to personality made the entire process seamless and very transparent. Since this was not a home we lived in, and we no longer live in San Leandro, she was phenomenal. She assisted us in finding subcontractors to complete painting and flooring, as well as staging the home. She was accurate with the time frame for workers and was so knowledgeable and available at all times by email or phone. Her suggestions were accurately reflected by the offers that were received for the home. I would highly recommend using her for any real estate transaction. We have worked with other realtors prior to this sale, but she was by far the easiest to work with. She knew the area and how to approach the market place. Don’t hesitate to hire Carrie Miles as your realtor buying or selling. We can’t thank her enough for making the process painless.”

Michael and Joyce Fontes

I was faced with the task of being the Successor Trustee to my late Mother’s estate. I was in no mood to do anything.  Especially handling the sale of her house.  All I wanted to do was sell the house as fast and as easy as possible.  I was willing to sell the house as is.  In retrospect, not a good idea. The house needed paint, repairs, code upgrades, and cleaning. 

When I first met Carrie Miles at the house it was still full of furniture and miscellaneous stuff that had not been retrieved by family or friends.  Mostly junk. I was a mess.  The house was a mess.  The world was rotating in the wrong direction.

Carrie was so positive. So bright. So motivational. So confident. She called the house a “Doll House”.  She delicately persuaded me to allow her to take care of everything.  All I had to do after that was answer a few emails and water Mom’s roses every other week.  A huge burden was lifted from me.  Everything went perfectly.  She did everything. She hired painters, floor refinishers, movers, inspectors, cleaners, gardeners, and even emptied the fridge. 
She loves her work. She loves transforming properties. She loves the process. She loves real estate. She helped me because helping people is what motivates her. I will forever be grateful.”

As someone who has purchased and sold several homes over the years, I have a solid basis for comparison when it comes to realtors. This however, was the first time out for me as a single homeowner.  So in that sense, it really was a bit different, and it was a bit scary.  Carrie was a dream date right from the start!  She was reassuring and super responsive, and oh so very patient with me as we reviewed properties (lots of properties!) in my quest for the perfect house.  When it came right down to it, she truly made it easy.  After I signed all the paperwork for my new house, I truly had that moment where I thought “This was the easiest property I have ever purchased!” and it was in no small part to Carrie.  Thanks Carrie for everything!”  

Susan Hoffmann

 

I had the pleasure of working with both, Carrie Miles and Earle Shenk for the sale of my home. They were honest, professional, and handled everything in a timely manner. They went above and beyond and treated me like family. They handled everything and kept me updated on the progress. They were amazing to work with, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!”

Mary B.

 

“Dave is the most professional, creative pro-active, determined realtor I’ve ever worked with. His services extend way beyond what is expected. 24/7 commitments to my home turned a stressful situation into exciting. He was there constantly, watering plants, meeting realtors, ensuring the lighting and security system was on. His schedule was hectic, but always made me feel like he wanted what was best for me by being accessible and responsive. I know from professional experience in the title and home industry, Dave’s attention to detail is rare. It was 100% the right decision to have Dave sell my home. I received a cash offer way above asking, and a 21-day close with no hiccups along the way. You are the best!”

“When my husband I were looking to buy a house in Pleasanton, we decided to work with Tianne and Perry at Rinetti and Co.  We could not be more happy with our decision.  When we started the process, they took the time to listen and understand what we wanted to buy and in what location.  They took time to answer our questions and share their insight. They worked with us through the entire process and it went very smoothly.  They always went above and beyond during the search and even after the close.  I can not say enough about them and how great the experience was for us.  If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the East Bay, I highly recommend them.  We will definitely use them when we are in the market again.”

Shelly S.

 

If anyone in the East Bay is looking to buy or sell a home, please consider my friends and agents Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria and Perry Vittoria! They helped us buy our house and did an amazing job! They go above and beyond.”

Chris S.

 

I’ve worked with many realtors in the Bay Area over the years and Earle Shenk is amazing. He has been in the real estate business for over 20 years and his experience shows.  He worked with me for nine long and frustrating months to find a unique home for my 80 year old parents.  He was totally professional (and upbeat)throughout and never pressured me to buy. When we finally had a bid accepted he made the buying process as painless as possible. His use of online tools such as DocuSign made the bidding process easier.  After the purchase he helped find reliable contractors and even gave me numbers and websites for connecting utilities. He’s a highly effective combination of really nice person and highly skilled professional.  A true pleasure to work with. I’ve never had a realtor who I trusted more.  Highest recommendation!”

Rose G.

 

Carrie Miles was extremely helpful, friendly and a pleasure to work with. I was looking for a condo and she was my agent for Castro Valley/Hayward/San Leandro. As prices skyrocketed in the bay area I found myself priced out of the market, and turned to prefab houses as a cheaper alternative. I asked Carrie for a referral and based on a unit she saw at a marketing meeting she referred me to Elsa Francis from Coldwell Banker who helped me purchase a great home.”

Buying a house can be stressful and I know that first hand! My husband and I were on an emotional roller coaster for two years and we would not have made it through if it wasn’t for Perry and Tianne. After dealing with a different realtor for a year and a half and making no progress, I knew we had to make a change! Once we decided to go with Perry and Tianne we found a house in the first week! If that’s not a sign we made the right decision I don’t know what is! Due to structural issues we decided not to go with that house and the day after making that decision I had numerous prospective houses sitting in my email! With this crazy housing market it took us a few months to find the house we really wanted! And having their support every step of the way made the process bearable. Whenever I needed them they were there! With countless early morning and late night phone calls, texts and emails stressing about offers going through, counter offers coming back they were there every step of the way guiding us through the process. At times when we thought we were never going to find a house Perry and Tianne were there to assure us that everything would work out.  I truly believe that we got the house we had been looking for because of them!  We are truly blessed to have found such great people! They are not only kind hearted and honest, but they make you feel like family. They make you feel like you are the only client they have and bend over backwards to help you get the home of your dreams! If you are in the market to buy house Rinetti & Co Realtors is the place to go! I cannot stress enough how GREAT these people are and they are GREAT at what they do! I guarantee if my husband and I decide to buy another house Perry and Tianne are a phone call, text or email away!! Thank you for the experience!”

My fiance and I got the keys to our house in May of 2012.  As (very young) first-time home buyers, we knew we wanted to work with an agent would would be willing to do a lot of hand holding.  We were incredibly lucky to work with Perry and Tianne of Rinetti & Co Realtors!

First, I must stress that these are GOOD people.  They are both very personable, honest, and transparent.  Both were quick to respond to emails, voice mails, and text messages.  Even our lender mentioned that it was a pleasure working with Perry and Tianne.  We were really proud to work with such a competent pair of professionals.

It must be stressed that my fiance and I had competing ideas about the home we wanted to buy.  Clearly, Tianne and Perry understood which homes would work as a compromise.  They were really good about showing us a variety of homes which were appealing to both of us.

In the end, we ended up in a really impressive home for well under the asking price.  Through this exciting, nerve-wracking, and humbling process we gained a house we are proud to call home, real estate agents for future home purchases, and two good friends.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND RINETTI & CO REALTORS!”

Carrie Miles is an exceptional Realtor. I recommend her to anyone buying or selling in the bay.

My husband and I have been frequently relocated with his company throughout the southwest and west coast. We have interviewed and worked with many realtors in the purchase and sale of seven homes. Carrie Miles stands out of the crowd with a rare combination of skills and traits that make her truly wonderful to work with. On the one hand she is driven, detailed, punctual, and knowledgeable, and on the other she is genuine, caring, respectful, thoughtful and honest. At every point in our sales process I felt like I had a true partner at my side. The entire team at Rinetti and Co. made us feel welcome and supported. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to work with Carrie, Tianne and Perry again.”

Chris P.

 

I had the great honor & privilege of working with relator Carrie Miles of Rinetti & Co. Realtors. For two long years, I was unsuccessful in purchasing a home & I felt very doubtful that I would ever have the opportunity to become a homeowner. Fortunately, I came across Rinetti & Co. Realtors & through the assistance of Carrie Miles, I purchased my first home last year. Because this was my first home purchase, I had a zillion questions and concerns about the process, but Carrie Miles guided me through the journey with much valued knowledge and experience. And now that I am settled in my new home, Carrie Miles is still there for me with any questions or concerns I may have regarding my home. If you are in need of an outstanding realtor, contact Carrie Miles of Rinetti & Co. Realtors.”

Sho B.

 

Just like many people who are looking to purchase a home, I was looking for the right realtor who would work with me and my girlfriend in search of our first home. While searching for realtors, I came across a realtor on Yelp that had high reviews and I decided to give him a try. I am grateful that I met Perry and his wife Tianne. Since we were first time buyers we were initially unsure of what we were looking for, however Perry and his wife were very patient with us. Perry showed us many different property types in different areas and always made himself available for any questions that we had. The one thing that we really admired about Perry throughout our journey of buying a home was his honesty. Throughout the process I would call or text Perry for guidance and his advice always felt very sincere.  We ultimately benefited from Perry’s vast knowledge and experience in the real-estate market as his expertise helped us find the perfect home. When we went into contract Perry seamlessly arranged all the inspections and the process was very smooth. Overall Perry is friendly, trustworthy and professional. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and anyone who is looking to buy a home.”

Tianne and Perry are GREAT!  Almost a year ago now we purchased our first home with them. As some of you may know house buying can be extremely stressful, hectic and crazy. BUT we were so extremely lucky to have such an awesome team, Tianne and Perry, to work with. There was VERY LITTLE stress, i loved our experience with them. They are both very professional, reliable, prompt, flexible and exceptionally knowledgeable in what they do!  We searched for quite some time for our perfect home and never did we feel rushed or pushed into making an offer on a home we weren’t sure about, Tianne and Perry were oh so very patient and hard working.  My husband and i feel extremely comfortable with our choice of Realtors, we loved them so much we couldn’t stay away from them too long =) Shortly after we bought our home they helped my dad sell his home. He was so happy with their service. He had multiple offers to choose from and couldn’t be happier.  We would work with them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend the awesome team at Rinetti & Co. Realtors.”

Rocio L.

 

The only realtors in San Leandro. Extraordinarily knowledgeable about the area, professional, flexible, and willing to provide their input and insights. Very easy to work with and very responsive throughout the looking and buying process. You will not meet two finer or more ethical realtors.  The best!”

Gary S.

 

Rinetti & Co. turned out to be the perfect place for me to do business. I was extremely pleased with their operation from listing until sale of home. They made sure all bases were covered from beginning to end.

I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone buying or selling property.”

Mary K.

 

We performed our due diligence and interviewed three different realtors and Perry Vittoria from Rinetti.  I was a bit skeptical at first, as his recommendation was to list it at a lower offering price than some of the other realtors we spoke to, but Perry was well versed in regard to today’s market and what attracted buyers.  At the open house we had over 100 visitors (in what I thought was an off market) and over 30 bids for the offering, all over the listing price.  Perry was available throughout the process, assisting us with buyers agents as well as offering advice and suggestions.  The house sold in approximately one month for what we considered was a very good price.   I would recommend Perry Vittoria and Rinetti Realtors highly.”

Richard K.

 

After working with another agent for a few months, and just not feeling it, we called up Perry at the urging of some of our friends. I could not be more pleased with what we got. Perry was amazing. He worked withus through something like 20 bids in a very frustrating market. He was patient with my freak out moments, and answered all the questions we had during the process. We were working on a tight deadline to purchase, and Perry came through on his promise that we would buy a house. There were some bumps in the road, and Perry handled them with professionalism and always had our best interests in mind. Tianne is also awesome! I had to bring my daughter on a few showings, and she helped her stay entertained so I could look around. I could not ask for a better experience, or better people to work with.”

Megan H.

 

Earle Shenk came recommended from friends, and he did not disappoint in representing me as buyer for my family home.  He is professional and meticulous with his work, and very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods he represents.   I was simultaneously preparing my current home to rent out, and he went above and beyond with assistance during the entire process.  He returned phone calls and texts promptly, and stayed in contact appropriately with my mortgage broker and the seller’s agent.

My mortgage broker, unsolicited, also told me that he himself has been in the business for over 20 years and has not met a more skilled or thorough agent.

I would highly recommend Earle in the sale or purchase of property, and plan to use his expertise myself in any future transactions.  I am grateful for his help during this entire process.”

Tanya G.

 

Integrity and honesty count. Earle Shenk is about as good as gets for decent old California service.   When you want straight up answers find the time to get Earle Shenk working for you.”

James G.

 

As a former realtor, you can bet that when I’m looking for real estate services, I’m looking for the best – which is why I was more than happy to work with Perry for my upcoming home purchase.Even given my experience, Perry still held my hand when I needed it, let me do the leg work I wanted and offered his guidance when necessary. He took my calls and returned my texts when I was freaking out and he coddled me through the home buying process like a pro.

Buying a new home is stressful. Trust me! And you need a great team to surround you during this time. I highly recommend Perry and his team of experts to get you comfortably through the process.

Oh – and it’s nearly three months later and whenever I call him up with one of my sill questions or requests, he’s just as responsive as he was at day 1.”

Kristle R.

 

My house in San Leandro just sold and closed escrow in one month. Earle Shenk was our realtor and i can’t say enough good things about him. Earle is professional, extremely courteous, and very knowledgeable. He guided us through the process while keeping us informed and up to date. His good advise paid dividends with the house selling well above asking price. Did I say we were pleased?! Earle staged the house, found repairmen, and ran the open house. He was great!”

Adam L.

 

Perry was awesome. He worked with us, put up with our wanting to see multiple properties, some of them we tried repeatedly to get into and couldn’t, and most importantly, he hooked us up with a broker when our bank financing fell through. If it weren’t for Perry, we wouldn’t be sitting in OUR house right now. Perry rocks!”

Terri Covello

 

Dear Tianne & Perry,

Thank you for everything you did in facilitating the sale of my parents home.  Having dealt with realtors in the past, I have to say you and Perry are the best!  Both Claudia and I were so impressed with the way in which Perry and you constantly were in communication with us.  There was never a time when we were not kept in the loop.  You really go above and beyond the job description of a realtor.  You staged my parents home, cleaned it, planted flowers and gave helpful suggestions.  The added bonus is you both are so easy to work with.  The one thing that impressed me the most is you both listen to your clients, I mean really listen.  Thank you so much again for not only your service and advice, but for all your personal touches.”

Paul M. Bellevue

 

Tianne & Perry – We wanted to thank both sooo much for helping us with the purchase of our 1st home together, it was quite a journey!  Thanks for your patience, guidance & professionalism, you made this experience a great one that we will never forget.  For all this and more we greatly appreciate you both.  We can’t thank you enough, thanks a bunch!!!”

Felipe & Rocio

 

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for your efforts in selling our moms home.  My sister and I have a lot of great memories there and it was very difficult to say goodbye for the last time. As I am sure you are aware, a house is stucco, wood and nails, but a home is where a lifetime of memories are created. Our mother was very proud of her home, it meant so much to her.”

Thank you again, Trent

 

Perry and Tianne – Your expertise has guided two more couples through the unpredictable waters of today’s real estate market. Stuart and Emma are so glad to be settled in their own place, and Ted and Leah look forward to taking a step forward as their family grows.  Your continued support has been key in helping and once again, we simply want to say THANK YOU!”

Grindley & Berardi Familes

 

We would highly recommend Rinetti & Co. Realtors for any and all of your home purchases or selling needs. Perry & Tianne were professional with a personal touch thrown in. They were very diligent in every aspect of our transaction. They helped us sell our family home and helped to make a difficult situation easier to handle. They were right on top of any questions or concerns and never every made us feel that we were being to pushy in asking questions and always kept us abreast of all events as they happened. We would highly recommend them and we will certainly work with them again in the future.”

Thom & Donna Burpee

 

We greatly appreciate Tianne and Perry’s tireless efforts in selling our home.  We would recommend them to anyone!  We are now settled in our new home, which we like better and better each day.  We love Proctor School and our kids are settling in well there.  Thank you for all your service in an extremely difficult real estate market.  The end result couldn’t have been better!”

Peter and Meghan Brothers

 

A team like yours is indispensable for selling a house in the current real estate climate.  Your experience in riding the real estate ripples over the years certainly serves your clients well.  We are very grateful to be settled in our grand old “new” house.  The years of patiently searching for a home in that neighborhood, with your guidance and expertise all along the way, have certainly been well rewarded.”

Stuart and Bridget Fussell

 

I recently sold my home here in San Leandro. I used Rinetti & Co. Realtors. Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria was my realtor. Often Realtors are on the top of lists which consumers do not like doing business with, often understandably so, for various reasons. My experience with all associated with Rinetti & Co. was incredibly competent, personable and very hard working. Tianne made sure I understood every little detail and left all decisions up to me, yet still giving me her opinions. They provide a plan to proceed, work very hard for their client and go above and beyond what I ever expected from a real estate company. Within 4 days of hiring Rinetti, they had an open house ready to go, and I received 2 offers that first day. Tianne walked me through each step, discussed everything that was happening and going to happen in the process. Everything was taken care of on a timely basis and completed in a very professional manner. Tianne made sure all the i’s were dotted and all the t’s were crossed. Tianne didn’t miss a beat. In addition to the sale of my home here in San Leandro, she made herself available to me for any questions I had regarding the buying of my new home, including sitting down with the Notary while I went through signing the papers. Rinetti & Co. have been in the San Leandro Community since 1969 and know San Leandro very well. They are a family-owned business. I feel strongly that they represent our community extremely well. Let’s support our small community businesses.”

Ellen Turinsky

 

A short note to express our heartfelt gratitude for your hard work and patience with us during the sale of our house in Castro Valley. We really appreciate your thoughtfulness and foresight through the whole process. Tianne, everyone loved the decor, and we received many appreciative comments while the house was staged! Perry, thanks for your perseverance and level headedness during the “back and forth” negotiations of the sale. We look forward to working with you for may years.”

Jerry and Dawn Brothers

 

My wife and I could not have been more pleased. I sent out 20+ e-mails looking for someone to list our home with. Nine agents responded in a timely manner and I selected 3 to interview at our home. Tianne and Perry were on time and had done their research. We were 3 months away from retirement and we were going to hopefully sell our home in unincorporated San Leandro and move into our weekend house up in Pioneer. Well, long story short we went with their suggested listing price. Tianne staged the house in such a manner we almost wanted to stay…almost. They took care of everything, inspections, photos, ads, etc. A buyer made an offer at the first open house at $3,000 over asking and while there are always issues I was never worried since they took care of everything. We cleared escrow 4 weeks before I retired and so I piled up a few “choice” hotel nights as we waited for retirement.

What they brought to the table:
– Experience
– Professionalism
– Honesty
– Taste
– Quality representation
– Calm support

As we settle into our mountain home we can truly say working with Tianne and Perry was the best home buying/selling experience we ever had.”

Donn K.

 

Perry Vittoria is a rock star real estate agent!

I’ve been in sales for decades, and his professionalism, ethics and ability to get the job done are exemplary. From the moment I contacted him when we started planning our move to San Leandro, to picking up the keys to our new home, he was delightful to work with. We moved here from outside the area, and Perry directed all of the inspections, repairs and even accepted shipments and deliveries for us while we were far away. His knowledge of the market and relationships with local service providers and agents definitely paved the way for a smooth sale. His communications with my lender and broker kept things humming along. When we had an unexpected turn in selling our previous place, he pulled out all the stops to get title docs completed so we could take possession the same day we left. Perry is personable, but also a great negotiator-we got a smokin’ deal on just the right house for us. Now that we are in our home, we especially appreciate his gentle guidance about neighborhood selection. He really listened to what we wanted in our home and neighborhood and showed us a property we might not have looked at otherwise. A month later, we already feel like we lived here all along.

Perry gets things done…with class.”

Nora T.

 

We really appreciate Perry & Tianne’s calm reassurance and expert advise throughout the entire process. Their professionalism and teamwork carried us thru. Having them work with us made a nerve-wracking negotiations, a wonderful success!”

Arnold and Doreen Bellini

 

Great job…to the Rinetti-Vittoria realty team!

Tianne, you did an amazing job of helping us with the design of our remodeled kitchen and basement and with choosing colors to paint our rooms. You also did an outstanding job of staging our home. I can’t tell you how many comments I received from friends, family, and neighbors about how mice our home looked. Of course, that made it a little harder to leave 🙂

Perry, your willingness to be available and to help us through the real estate transfer was greatly appreciated. Your help allowed us to move smoothly through the process of selling our home. Your assistance in finding people/contractors to do work when we needed it and your help explaining aspects of the home sale we didn’t understand was very useful. We were particularly grateful for your calm demeanor and level-headed perspective while we went through negotiations with the buyer.”

Brian and Kim Thompson

 

When we were looking to sell our home, I did my own observation of which Realtor companies I noticed in our neighborhood. Time and time again, I saw Rinetti and Co., so I met with them (Perry and Tianne) and they were extremely professional, and always seem to put our needs first. They explained every step of the process, were easily accessible via email, phone, etc, and answered all of my questions. They are extremely knowledgeable, and have extensive experience in buying and selling homes. We sold our house and actually liked them so much we had them represent us when we bought a new home. We recommend Rinetti and Co if you are looking to sell or buy a home.”

Pete and Gayle Nguyen

 

We are delighted to have this opportunity to recommend to you without reservation Tianne and Perry Vittoria of Rinetti & Co. Realtors.  We listed our San Leandro home with them at a time when the market had just taken a fairly sharp downturn and the outlook for selling homes was anything put positive.

However, despite the bleak economic outlook, we soon learned that our home was in excellent hands, because Tianne and Perry went well above and beyond the call of duty to manage every detail flawlessly from start to finish.  Our home sold for a good price within a reasonable period of time given the market conditions, and Tianne and Perry were absolutely a Godsend in making this happen.

We hold Tianne and Perry Vittoria of Rinetti & Co. Realtors in the highest regard, and we are extremely grateful for the incredibly high level of service, the integrity, and the genuine heart that they brought to the effort of selling our home.  Whoever lists their home with them is fortunate indeed, for they are a rare find!”

Elizabeth Kreiselmaier, Ph.D. and Paul Kreiselmaier, M.B.A., C.F.A.

 

We had never sold a house before and amid much uncertainty, during a time when the market had started to change, Tianne and Perry did their utmost, with consummate professionalism, to see us successfully through the entire process.

My wife Jenn and I had a newborn, no experience, and lots of questions. Tianne and Perry put us at ease, were very communicative, listening to our suggestions while guiding us to theirs (which always had our best interests in mind). Their kindness and caring nature were much appreciated and Tianne’s decorator’s eye and positive attitude made our Sunday open houses easy and productive. We had never seen our home look so comfortable, and pretty, and always enjoyed coming home on a Sunday afternoon to relax in what with just a few extra touches seemed an entirely more livable home. We recommend Rinetti Co. wholeheartedly, knowing that Tianne and Perry will with honesty and sincerely do their very best to assist you, as they did for us.”

Working with Rinetti & Co. Realtors, when selling our home for the first time, was an incredible experience. Having no idea where to begin, I called Tianne and Perry who gave me tips, right away, on how to make our home as marketable as possible. They provided a list of local tradesman for cosmetic improvements we decided to make. But more than that, Tianne, who was expecting her first child at the time, spent hours an d hours with me choosing paint colors, plumbing and light fixtures (she told me to go to Home Depot and call her and her ell so she could “walk me through the lighting department!), and hand picked a slob of granite for the kitchen. when she staged our home, using many of her own furnishings and accessories the house looked so enticing, it was hard to follow through on actually selling it! our home sold in 9 days!

There were 3 things i remember most about working with Rinetti & Co.

1) They responded within an hour of any call or email I sent
2) They were as patient as a pediatrician with a new born
3) They advised me to ask for q two month rent back from my buyers, which turned out to be a life saver

Because of their dedication and commitment to professionalism, from wonderfully written fliers to driving me through over 50 homes, to closing the deal on our new place, their hometown approach combined with the very best financial and residential market information, made our move after 21 years, a total success. And while there are many agents offering terms too good to believe, how many take the time and effort to endure that every minute detail is covered for their client’s personal satisfaction? That aspect…is priceless!”

We bought our home in October of 2004 and used Rinetti & Co Realtors. Perry & Tianne are not only very professional, thorough and super personable but they are also extremely good at what they do! They took the stress and pressure out of buying our first home which was a huge fete! They were always available to answer any questions we had and they explained the process every step of the way always keeping us in the loop. In the end we bought our first home which was everything we were looking for and more! We were so pleased with Perry & Tianne and our entire experience with Rinetti & Co Realtors and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home!”

Erin Russo

 

Perry and Tianne – Thank you so much for helping us find our new home! You made the process of selling our condo stress free and looking for our house fun. Your team was very patient and understanding exactly what we wanted. Thanks again for all your efforts!”

Robert and Melissa Coto

 

Easy-going, professional, and no hassle factor are the hallmarks of Tianne and Perry, Realtors with Rinetti & Co. Mr. B. and I bought our first home last summer and it felt great having such long-time San Leandro experts on our side. When you’re deciding to give up your life savings, you want someone who is upfront, honest, and resourceful looking out for you. I highly recommend them to anyone considering joining the suburban frontier of San Leandro.”

Andrea and John

 

Tianne and Perry – Mike and I would like to thank you both so much for your help in securing our new “home away from home” for us. We never would have thought of the “Gold Country” as the perfect location for our second home, but you knew exactly what we were looking for.

Thanks to your knowledge of the area, as well as your complete understanding of our specific requirements, we now have the cabin of our dreams. Arnold is an ideal spot for our family and we’re all delighted with our purchase. Not to mention how easily and quickly you made it all happen. It was a completely painless process.

You are the dynamic duo! In the future we certainly know exactly who to turn to in all our real estate ventures – Rinetti & Co.
Keep up the great work and thanks again for all your expertise.”

Mike and Margee Witt

 

On a personal note, we’d like to thank you both once again for your roles as Realtors, financial and legal advisers, psychologists, interior designers, landscape artists, etc., etc., during the past seven weeks. We look forward to working with you further.”

The Perry and Tianne team at Rinetti & Co. Realtors was incredible! Tianne is a master of interior design; taking from what was there, adding to it, and turning out a fantastic product. Her eye and flare for design is amazing. Perry handled the contract negotiations fast and efficiently; making sure the buyers met timelines, keeping the buyers agent on their toes and in the end my expectations were met and exceeded. I would definitely recommend Perry and Tianne for future real estate transactions!”

Matt Rodgers

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We are finally starting to feel settled into our new house…can’t believe that we actually have one, and it’s all thanks to you! Looking back on our 8 month experience we just marvel at all the trials and tests that you guided us through. When we first started looking we didn’t even know about San Leandro or any of the surrounding areas. While you were showing us house after house we gradually realized where we were and what we wanted. THEN we couldn’t fin it! Thanks for your patience, your inspirations and for your continual assurance that “our” house was out there somewhere. You found it, you negotiated expertly and you made it happen. We are sure that every real estate transaction has its ups and downs but ours was surely more the typical. We are very grateful to you both and will be glad to recommend you and your company to our family and friends as they need real estate services.”

Kenny and Sandie Holt

 

When we began the process of wanting to buyer our known home, we were more fortunate than we could imagine having Perry Vittoria as our agent. Perry’s patience and perseverance was second to non during this sometimes difficult and daunting process, and his knowledge and expertise was available to us right up to the closing and afterwards. We would highly recommend Perry Vittoria as a dedicated and hard-working Realtor to anyone and everyone!”

Thomas H. and Terri D. Covello

 

Perry Vittoria brings energy, experience, and the legacy of a reputable, family-owned business to his work as a realtor. His skill set is broader than many agents as he worked in the financial realm previously. Those talents help his clients make good, practical decisions on home mortgages and real estate investments. Our home sold in nine days and Perry was responsive and informative throughout the process. He also negotiated for us when we bought our new home in Castro Valley. All in all, a total, full service professional from start to finish.”

Al and Kathy Padro

 

Thank you for all your perseverance and help. We very much appreciate it and we are extremely happy in our new house.”

Roland and Christine Fussell

 

Our house sold very quickly during a tumultuous time within the real estate market and that had everything to do with having Perry as our agent. Having bought and sold a home with Perry, I can say that his business experience made him a valuable asset during negotiations and his relaxed demeanor was extremely helpful during such a stressful time. He helped keep things on track when they didn’t seem to be heading in a linear direction and ultimately helped steer everyone to a successful close.”

Michael and Danielle Toombs

 

The real estate market has changed into a very difficult environment and thus the level of professionalism in selling a house is much more critical. Facing a tough market caused us to not only get our house prepared to go on the market, but bring in the right team to help us in the vital areas of what to update, where to price the house, and how to market it. We found the Vittoria’s at Rinetti and Co. Realtors to be the absolute right fit for us. They helped us with recommendations in preparing the house, helped us get the pricing established to fit the market, and then did a first rate job of promoting the house with open houses and using their website for potential buyers to see what the house looked like. In about a month’s time, we sold the house without the normal hassles associated with a down market. We highly recommend this team.”

Jay Fike

 

What a find…once again your expertise has closed the transaction successfully. Our sincere gratitude for your ongoing relationship with our school/church community. It sure doesn’t look like there are any signs that community growth will slow down, rather the opposite! So we look forward to continuing an enduring and mutually beneficial relationship with your company. You both mean so much to all of us, and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you as you grieve the loss of your father.”

Jacqueline Holt

 

Thanks again for handling the sale of the old homestead in fine fashion, smooth as silk! As a meager token of our appreciation dash down to the nearest See’s and grab a 2 pounder on me!!!”

Don Brothers

 

Once again in the long course of your service we have the privilege of writing you a thank you letter. Sometimes we realize that there are limitations to the English language, and this is one of those times. We are running out of words to express our heartfelt thanks for all that you do for us and ours…but we simply want to say THANK YOU! This is also appreciation for the genuine interest and personal investment that you have made in each and every one of the real estate transactions that you have conducted for us. We know from the years that you have helped us that the real estate business is like a stormy sea. You have made it as navigable as you possibly could.”

Guy Fussell

 

We are nearly all moved in now and have begun to settle into a new routine. We love our new home along with the surrounding community. In the coming weeks, I’m sure you and Sharon will discuss at length, decorating and remodeling ideas for the new place. I’ve been struggling for days now trying to best articulate our appreciation for everything you did related to our move. We can thank you for your expert advice and council on the sale of our San Leandro home. We can also thank you for your speed and flexibility on our Walnut Creek purchase. Finally, we can thank you for keeping everything moving and ensuring all the “domino’s” that had to fall into place for our sale & buy to be completed. So, thank you! However, the depth of our appreciation goes far beyond this. Yes, you provided competent real estate advice, but you gave us much more. You have helped us provide our family a better life, Everyday. Years form now, the memories of the challenges we faced during this transaction will fade. What we will remember is how our lives were improved by this move for our children, Sharon’s family and mine. Simply put, we do not believe that we could have completed this transaction without your help.”

Bryan and Sharon

 

We’ve never been so thankful to put pen to paper and express our gratitude for your excellent service! Hopefully the last seven months were not as challenging to you as they have been to us; however, surely at times our tenacity proved very trying to you, we’d like to take this opportunity to applaud your perseverance throughout the entire process. Every time it seemed our backs were up against a wall, you pulled through with some more great professional advice or skillful, experienced negotiating tactics, or just good old reassurance! Perry, we really appreciated your great relationship with the seller’s Realtor, which almost certainly helped ensure our success against great odds. In today’s uncharted waters, it’s great to know realtors like you two who work hard, think outside the box, try unprecedented maneuvers, and enjoy the resulting miracles! We wish you the very best in your respective careers as realtors. Be assured that we will continue to heartily refer your services to anyone in need of a Realtor.”

Nick and Jacqueline Holt

 

My family and I have been a client of Perry’s both when he was in Financial Services and for the last several years when he was our Real Estate agent. He has assisted us in both buying and selling properties in the East Bay Area. He is extremely diligent and hard-working, detail-oriented and gets the job done well and on time. He is a great communicator and very proactive as well. Because he is an area specialist, we rely on his advice. We have been very satisfied with Perry specifically and with Rinetti Realtors in general, and wholeheartedly recommend him to prospective clients.”

Made our real estate wishes come true! You have guided us through FIVE transactions with brilliant results every time!!!”

I would like to express my thanks to Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria for the outstanding and professional job she preformed in selling my house at 701 St. Mary’s Ave., San Leandro California.

I inherited the house from my father. It was located four hours away from where I lived and when I received possession of the house, I had plans to be out of the county within two week. I did not want the house to sit empty for a long period of time so quickly looked for the best Realtor I could find. I interviewed five different Realtors before I selected Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria of Rinetti & Co. Realtors. Some of the Realtors had very slick, fancy presentations. Tianne’s presentation was not the fanciest, but she came across with the most enthusiasm and with the best plan of any of the others. She not only kept her word, she did more than I had hoped for in selling my house.

Tianne took over, with my blessing and was able to clear out the contents of the house, find a yard person to clean up the yard and landscape the grounds. She also obtained painters, hardwood floor refinishes and other specialist to do inspections and maintenance work at the house while I was away. She took on all the tasks cheerfully and professionally with outstanding results. As soon as the house was ready, she had it on the market with filers, internet ads, and open houses. She was instrumental in selling the house in a timely fashion and at a fair price. Most of the time the house was on the market and during offer, I was not available to meet with her in person. She was efficient and timely and let me know what was happening with the house via mail, fax, phone calls, e-mail, and cell phone. When we received an offer on the house, I was out of the area on a six week trip. Tianne continued to work with the prospective buyer’s Realtor. She called and e-mailed me with the offers and counter offers. When the buyer requested items to be changed at the last minute, Tianne was able to get experts to check the requested changes and give me their recommendations for the final counter offer; she did this in a matter of a few hours.

Tianne has a wealth of knowledge of real estate practices and is willing to go the extra mile to help her clients get the best deal available to them. I have dealt with many Realtors over the years and I can say for sure that Tianne is the BEST Realtor that I have ever been associated with. I am sure there is no better Realtor around. If you have any questions about my recommendations of Tianne Rinetti-Vittoria as an outstanding Realtor, please call and I will be happy to discuss her ability to sell your property.”
