I first worked briefly with Heather when I bought my first house 12 years ago, she was working with my agent who went on vacation as we were closing, ugh. Needless to say, we didn't use that agent again. When it came time to list that house, we immediately contacted Greg & Heather. Here's why we used them as the listing agent: Years ago when I first met Heather, I was impressed with how well she carries herself. She always looks great, she's smart and good with people. She knows the area super well. She's honest. She was considerate of us having a dog. This was huge, we needed someone who could deal with our 130 lb Great Dane with consideration and kindness. We were able to sell our house without ever leaving our dog in the backyard. Through her, I was able to get to know Greg better too and he has those same traits. Here's why I bought them with them: They are extremely knowledgeable ab…

She knows the area super well. She's honest. She was considerate of us having a dog. This was huge, we needed someone who could deal with our 130 lb Great Dane with consideration and kindness. We were able to sell our house without ever leaving our dog in the backyard. Through her, I was able to get to know Greg better too and he has those same traits. Here's why I bought them with them: They are extremely knowledgeable about the areas we were searching for. They took the time to understand our needs and wants. They found suggestions that I wouldn't have considered. They had my best interests at heart. When I was looking, I was separated but not yet divorced and I was panicked. I was considering looking in East Bay, even though my job and friends are on the peninsula. Heather took me over there to see houses. Then I started insisting on looking at cheap houses in San Mateo and East Menlo in not-so-nice neighborhoods, Heather was not excited about me living in any of those locations but she indulged me to a point. Not often do I get "tricked" but I was 100% anti-townhouse. Heather took me to look at a house in my price range, then took me to the place I now call home which is a townhouse. She understood my situation better than I did at the time. She was removing lawn mowing, and house repair from my plate and putting me in a good neighborhood. I would have been living in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom dump in a bad neighborhood had she not steered me in the right direction. Instead, I'm living in the most lovely gated community in a safe neighborhood with the kind of neighbors who I'd borrow an egg from or ask to feed my dog and I have a half bath downstairs for guests! Here's the other part, you hire them and you get two people who complement each other extraordinarily. I was able to depend on these two as a team to cover all angles. They made my life easier and helped me make a great decision in a rough time. As a testament to how much we like them, my ex-husband used them to buy his new house too. I can't imagine using anyone else.

Buyer & Seller

In 2012, on the recommendation of a friend, we used Greg to buy a home in San Mateo having previously sold our house in SF. In early 2015, we were considering moving to a better neighborhood while interest rates were still low and shared our thoughts with Greg. Through his network, Greg was able to source an unsolicited pre-emptive "as-is" offer that ultimately hit our "make us move" price, which was significantly above the local comps. So we sold our house, no repairs, no staging, no hassles, and proceeded to rent as we searched for a new house to buy. We were a bit concerned because we did not want to "chase" the hot seller's market at the time, although we had priced the sale of our previous house to be able to weather a rising supply-constrained market. Over the course of four months, we attended open houses almost every weekend and narrowed our search to three neighborhoods on the P…

In 2012, on the recommendation of a friend, we used Greg to buy a home in San Mateo having previously sold our house in SF. In early 2015, we were considering moving to a better neighborhood while interest rates were still low and shared our thoughts with Greg. Through his network, Greg was able to source an unsolicited pre-emptive "as-is" offer that ultimately hit our "make us move" price, which was significantly above the local comps. So we sold our house, no repairs, no staging, no hassles, and proceeded to rent as we searched for a new house to buy. We were a bit concerned because we did not want to "chase" the hot seller's market at the time, although we had priced the sale of our previous house to be able to weather a rising supply-constrained market. Over the course of four months, we attended open houses almost every weekend and narrowed our search to three neighborhoods on the Peninsula. Greg was always very helpful in providing color on the various neighborhoods, and advance scouted many locations for us. He had a great sense of what we liked and didn't like, which is no easy task as we are very particular. We put in competitive but not aggressive offers on five to six properties that we "liked" but didn't "love" in order to feel out the bidding process and dynamics of the market, during which time Greg proved to be amazingly accurate in predicting what various properties should sell for. Ultimately, we found a property that we "loved" in San Mateo Park and I was surprised that Greg thought it should go for at or around the asking price, given that the local comps had gone for a significantly higher price per square foot. But the market had cooled a bit and the layout was not optimal for families with children (which did not bother us) so we put in an offer for a bit above the asking price based upon Greg's advice. As it turned out, we were neck-and-neck with one other bidder and the seller ultimately chose us because the listing agent had a very favorable opinion of Greg from previous deals, and we presented a more complete offer (the other bidder's agent had not completed a visual inspection). So we ended up buying the house we wanted in the neighborhood we wanted. And if it hadn't been for Greg's accurate assessment of pricing, we probably never would have bid on the house in the first place because the comps would have priced it out of our budget. So a great outcome all around! I would definitely recommend Greg for his professionalism, easy going nature, local knowledge, great advice, and ability to read his client's preferences.

My husband and I recently sold our home in the San Francisco Bay Area. There was no question about who we wanted to represent us as we worked with the Damelio Family 10 years prior when they helped us buy that exact house. They are honest and hardworking and just overall- nice people! Greg and Heather are knowledgeable about the market and painted a picture of exactly what was happening in our area. We worked together to come up with a listing price that would attract buyers and one that we felt comfortable with. Their marketing plan was comprehensive and the results exceeded our expectations. The entire selling process was organized and clearly followed the calendar timeline that they created for us based on our needs. They were accommodating to our schedules. They are both super responsive to calls, emails, and text messages. My husband and I appreciated that level of open communicatio…

We would highly recommend the Damelio group! If only we could have taken them with us when we moved to Oregon.

We used Heather and Greg Damelio for the sale of our prior house and purchase of our new house in the Aragon neighborhood of San Mateo in 2009. They are a great team, each bringing a different set of skills to the table. They put a lot of effort into staging, listing, and marketing our house, and successfully sold our house within a relatively short time frame, even with the difficult market in 2009. They did all the legwork and really made the selling process a breeze. They found us a great house in our ideal neighborhood (off the market) and helped us negotiate a deal that we were pleased with. Most impressively, their work didn't end there. They helped us out tremendously after closing in getting the house ready to move into. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would highly recommend Heather and Greg Damelio to other buyers and sellers in the area.

Words can't describe how satisfied we were with the Damelio Group. Heather and Greg sold our home in Baywood Knolls while were already living in Southern California! We interviewed several Realtors in the San Mateo area, but none of the others had the complete package of services that Heather and Greg provide. Those services include a strong website, a good photographer, a home stager, a landscaper, a good virtual tour provider, and most importantly an intimate knowledge of the area. The Damelio Group used all of those services to prepare our house to be listed in the market. They literarily did all of the work because we had already moved out of the area. Our home received several offers and sold to the most qualified buyer within one month.
