What Our Clients Say

Yasmene is simply phenomenal. We recently bought our first house, thanks to Yasmene.

3 things stand out about Yasmene

  1. Integrity - she always does the right things for all parties involved and looks for a 'win-win' for all
  2. Always available to help, support, and suggest without pushing - she understood what we wanted but also subtly suggested what we could possibly also consider.
  3. Proactively responsive - right from being able to view houses, any house we wanted, any day to being available to answer our inquiries, getting back without any follow-ups, etc.


Seldom have I seen such professionalism. I am OK to be held accountable if you work with Yasmene and experience anything lesser/different from what I have shared above".

It was such a great experience buying a home with Grace Abellera. My husband and I weren’t the easiest clients during our search. We had big dreams and a tight budget. As first-time homebuyers, we’re also incredibly anxious about this big investment. Grace did an excellent job of showing us all our options and walking us through the pros and cons of every house we walked into. She also made sure that we know everything there is to know about a property and community— no shortcuts! During the shopping of the homes with her, it felt like going with a friend— someone who has your best interest at heart and isn’t just trying to make a fast sale. Highly highly recommend!"

We had the best experience working with Grace Abellera. She listened to all of our needs and wants in finding the perfect home for my family and me. She is so organized, detail-oriented, and always took the time to answer all of our questions. The escrow process was so smooth and painless. We have already recommended her to friends and family".

Yasmene Mian helped us sell our home and she helped us buy a home. She was very well informed, efficient, patient, supportive, made this challenging experience smooth and memorable. She educated and counsel us about the prevailing market prices, helped us to read and understand all the literature that we were signing and our rights as a seller and as a buyer. We were a working couple with one elementary school child, one daycare child, and with limited time on our hands for home sale/purchase necessitates. She worked with us around our schedule, helped us prep our home for the showcase, and sale. It took under 24 hours for our home to sell. And she helped us patiently navigate the timeframe to buy a home, which took much more diligent patience. She provided us her own personal expertise in bringing the best out of our home. Looking back, it was such an exciting and fun time working with Yasmene. Always smiling, her sunny beautiful, approachable, intuitive personality made us feel that we could ask anything and that we would be taken care of. That she would take care of everything and that we could just go back to our jobs every morning peacefully. We feel very blessed to have had her as our agent.”

Yasmene is one of a kind realtor! She spends the time to help you in whatever way needed during your transition. She helped us throughout the process when we needed to make some tough decisions. We relocated from California to Texas, and she made sure to introduce her connections to us for a smooth transition, helped with the sale of our home, and to this day we keep in touch, just because she is an extraordinary person, very lovely, fun to be with, very caring, very smart, patient, and she has become a wonderful friend. For the sale of our home, she went above and beyond by making sure to prepare our house for sale, hired power wash, facilitated house cleaning, carpet cleaning, a handyman to fix the paint, she got our mail, she kept on checking on the house and on us during our transition time. She made sure we had wonderful marketing for the house. She hired the best photographers, she took care of the staging, she facilitated all conversations and negotiations on our behalf, and we fully trusted her input and decisions. She made sure the timing was right to sell our home after the holidays, even though we relocated before Christmas. All her hard work paid off as she was able to sell our home in less than 24 hrs. She put the house on market on Tuesday, had a preview planned for Wednesday, and had an open house planned for the following weekend. We ended up not even having the open house. On Wednesday two buyers made great offers, and we were blown away by it! We sold the house to the sweetest nice young family. Yasmene lighted candles up at the house for the preview on Wednesday, she had Godiva chocolates on the counter, she played jazz music, etc. The buyers were delighted by the lovely way Yasmene prepared the house. We definitely recommend Yasmene for someone who values a trustworthy, loyal, honest and very professional, and approachable realtor. She has become a friend to us, and I dearly miss the daily interactions with her.”

We had been in the market for a house for a year and we had been working with a previous agent that just didn’t seem to understand what we were looking for.  We then introduced to Grace and immediately we were taken by her knowledge, honesty, and professionalism. Grace took the time to listen to what we were looking for. With every home, we visited she gave us her honest opinion and we did not feel forced to make any kind of offer.  Grace truly wanted to help us find the right home for us. In fact, she made sure that we did not settle on a home. Once we decided to make an offer, she was on top of things and constantly kept us informed. Grace is the one to call if you are looking for a home.

It was a pleasure working with Yasmene to buy my very first home.
First off, she has a wonderful, kind and engaging personality. She is great to work with, very easy to talk to, and makes the home buying experience so much more pleasant. To add to that, she is very, very thorough and detailed in her work. She always follows up on everything, without ever having to remind her, and gives you a sense that things is under control. She helped me a lot in my search and introduced me to new neighborhoods, which changed my focus over the course of my search, and I finally ended up buying something quite different from what I had in mind when I started (which is a big plus, since I am very happy with my final choice!).

There was also an incident that happened the day before the old owners moved out - they had a plumber come in to remove a bidet, and ended up flooding the master bathroom, which leaked down to the kitchen. That was a huge deal for me as a first-time buyer and stressed me out a lot. Having Yasmene there to deal with it was invaluable. She worked with the seller through the whole process of getting the repairs done satisfactorily, and in time, so there was no change to my mortgage rate, and I even ended up getting new carpeting as a bonus! There was just about a week delay in moving in, but everything else was perfect.

All in all, my experience working with Yasmene was really positive, and I am grateful I had her with me for my first home purchase. She made it a lot less stressful than I anticipated, and I am very happy with the result!

I met Grace at an open house which she was conducting for her seller. Her professionalism and knowledge of the local real estate market immediately encouraged me to discuss my needs and home buying plans with her. She walked me through all of the steps in the home buying process and patiently answered all of my questions which was a great help in being a first-time homebuyer. I was very impressed with her connections and diligence in having me preview some homes before they were on the market.

Grace went to every house we were interested in. Always made time no matter what time of day or night it was. She quickly learned my likes and dislikes. She would even check out houses before me to see if it was a good fit base on my likes and dislikes.

When it came to putting in an offer, Grace went the extra mile to advocate for me. She kept in close contact with the selling agent and helped me understand out the situation was playing out. She played a major role in enduring that my offer stayed front and center to the seller, and ultimately, it was picked over another very tempting offer.

I have already referred Grace to my friends and family members so that they can benefit from her exceptional people skills and her vast knowledge in the real estate market. I have found a good friend in Grace and have kept with her even after my home buying process was complete.

We worked with Grace to purchase our first home in the Bay Area We found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Since this was our first time buying a home, we were totally unprepared and overwhelmed by the whole process. Grace was happy to answer all of our questions with patience, with as many details as possible. We were provided with contacts from mortgage lenders that she had worked with in the past, who had turned out to be wonderful. She listed all of our wants and needs for our perfect home and also took us to homes we wanted to see as well. Once we started seeing homes that we liked She went over every detail of the report and explained it to us thoroughly. Grace explained to us all the pros and cons of fixing all aspects of the house to make it our dream house. The level of help and guidance provided to us during this phase was critical to us in making the decision to buy the home we are in now. What impressed us, even more, was the fact that we felt no pressure from Grace in putting in an offer. She really wanted us to find our perfect first home.

During the escrow period, Grace followed through with meeting multiple contractors and getting comparative estimates for the work that needed to be done on the home base on the inspection report. After the close, she continued to follow up with us and continue to answer any questions we had regarding our new home. Overall, our experience with Grace was exceptional and we highly recommend anyone buying a house to work with her.
