Vinicius is an agent who really has your best interest in mind and is very knowledgeable about the Bay Area market and just the general economic trend.
Vinicius was my buyer agent for my first home purchase. I started looking during the big boom of early 2022, and after speaking to multiple agents, Vinicius was the most trustworthy and knowledgeable. He actually advised me to hold off on buying as he suspected the market will cool later in the year, which it precisely did a few months later. With his advice, I was able to get a lower price for a house that was even more than I was originally hoping for.
He can act as hands on or hands off as you need. During the beginning of the process, he was hands on and very patient. He taught me a lot about the real estate market as a whole and what to look for in a house. When I became more knowledgeable, he was more hands off which was a good arrangement. During the offer process, he was able to advise on what price to bid, and was very helpful during negotiation.
Though he was my buyer agent, I have no doubt as a seller agent he would be able to perform similarly in your best interest. I will definitely be working with Vinicius in the future.
