"I just wanted to drop you a brief note of appreciation for the amazing and successful job you did in representing our acquisition in Portola Valley. As I put the files away it gave me the opportunity to reflect that we spent over six months negotiating this transaction. I'm so thankful you were there to battle on our behalf as well as keep track of the eleven counter offers, which eventually satisfied our obvious "picky" concerns. When we started this process, I was a bit skeptical that we could ever eventually acquire this property given the immense complexity of development in Portola Valley and the peculiar character of the sellers. Your teflon coating and your iron will were paramount in making this transaction come to fruition. I look forward to working with you in the future. In my many years in the business, seldom have I been so ably and energetically represented and I will show my appreciation with additional work."

"My husband Matt and I moved to Palo Alto from the East Coast about four years ago. We bought the only house in our price range in one weekend, and have been trying to understand the real estate market and our place in it ever since. We met Zach at an open house in Los Altos and we were immediately impressed by his approach. He managed to be enthusiastic without being overly aggressive, but was also candid and realistic about the house. This was so refreshing to us and stood in sharp contrast to most realtors we have met, who will say anything they think you want to hear without listening to what you say! He asked us about where we were living, and told us he was born and raised in Palo Alto. I'm not sure he even mentioned his Palo Alto listing. He was extremely professional, yet personable. This positive impression had direct bearing on our decision to purchase his listing in Professorville"

"We had been looking for a house for slightly over one year. Actively shopping through all means available to us. The difficulty? Very discerning tastes! Also a need to be overly certain that we buy what is reasonable. We did not want to overpay just because we knew what we wanted, nor were we looking for that infamous and non-existent steal. We just wanted to find what "we" wanted In our journey we found "HIM." Our, unbeknownst to us, soon to be realtor -He was young, but he did not seem to mind working hard for what matter…like us. We continued on our journey and now with "HIM." On weekdays, on weekends, and at 9pm he found it, at 9am our papers were ready, and by late afternoon we were speaking of those magical words: "new homeowners." It takes a keen person to listen…really listen to his clients. It takes an equally qualified and assertive person to listen to and make the seller confident in"

"We recently sold our home in Palo Alto and our positive experience was one which we wanted you to know about, since we were represented by your company and by one of your very talented young brokers. We had owned our home in Palo Alto for over 22 years and had lived in the area until recently. My husband and I both work in the South Bay and knew many people with whom we could have listed our family home. However, when it came to listing our home, there was not a question who we would contact. It would be Zach Trailer. Zach was a third grade student of mine at Phillips Brooks School in Menlo Park many years ago. After over thirty years in education, I remember Zach very well. He was one of those students who simply stood out from many of the others. Zach was not only an excellent student, but he was a person who the other children looked up to"
