"Deep experience and understanding of the San Francisco market"
I have worked with Laura multiple times to buy and sell properties. Laura has deep experience and understanding of the San Francisco real estate market. I would describe Laura as strategic, consultative, personable, caring, competitive, dedicated, and overall a fantastic partner during both the buying and selling process. In addition, Laura is perhaps the most responsive person I have ever met!

"the best real estate agent out there"
Laura Lanzone is, hands down, the best real estate agent out there. Honest, respectful, caring, and diligent - I cannot say enough great things about her. She got us our dream house (even with 21 other offers!) and was a dream to work with. She made the whole experience quick and stress-free. I HIGHLY recommend her to any and everyone looking to buy or sell a house -- I'd give her 6 stars if I could!

"I’ll be using him for all my future real-estate needs"
I first met Mike on a Sunday browsing listings in the windows of my local agents. The fact that he was the only agent working out of the 4 offices I visited turned out to be representative of his work ethic throughout our relationship. After telling him what I was looking for he immediately set up a MLS login for me so I can browse at my leisure. As we began looking and figuring out what was important to me Mike remained flexible and patient. He never pushed on properties I wasn't sure of and really helped hone my search criteria to find what was right for me. Once we found the right property Mike's negotiating skills were top notch and he was able to get the property for asking price by putting together compelling offer terms. I have already recommending Mike to several friends and I'll be using him for all my future real-estate needs.

"I have to say, it was a pretty stress-free process!"
With an already stressful life, we decided to put our condo on the market and move our young family to the suburbs. With so much emotion, stress, and lack of time in our day, we are so thankful to have met Oggi! He came highly recommended. After interviewing five other agents, we knew why!! Oggi is a true professional while also being very down to earth and easy going. He was very accommodating with our schedules, needs and limitations and not once did we feel rushed, pressured or uncomfortable. Oggi told us his favorite part of the process is negotiating with potential buyers. We trusted that he would go to bat for us and not leave any money on the table. Oggi marketed our place long before it hit the market and after our first open house we had two offers, both over asking. With some negotiating, Oggi managed to close our sale at 5% over asking. We had heard the selling process could be really stressful, especially with two kids. I have to say, it was a pretty stress-free process! Now, two and a half months after meeting Oggi, we're living in the suburbs. Thank you Oggi!!

"He’s a solid, up-front communicator"
Oggi Kashi is a complete real estate professional - extremely knowledgeable, responsive, diligent, detail-oriented and tireless. Plus, he's just plain fun to work with. Never pushy, always thinking and an excellent sounding board. He's a solid, up-front communicator. Helped us sort through issues wisely and handled some tricky negotiations. Never dropped the ball, even once. We couldn't have wanted more from an agent and will definitely use him again.
- Kristen & Dave
"We would work with him again"
Oggi did a great job helping us consider variables, guiding us through the buying process, and advising us on negotiations. We would work with him again.
- Erika F.
"the best real estate agent one can have"
Oggi Kashi is the best real estate agent one can have. He is very knowledgeable and helpful with everything along the way of buying/selling process. Everyone knows that dealing with banks, inspections, paperwork, different agents can be painful, but Oggi makes every step as smooth as possible for his customers. It is also good to know that Oggi is very well respected by the other real estate agents. If you are lucky enough to work with Oggi Kashi - you know you are in good hands.
- Yevgenia & Volodymyr
"I don’t know what we would have done without him"
We were so lucky to find Oggi. He helped us purchase our home in Sausalito and steered us expertly and calmly through the whole process. I don't know what we would have done without him. You definitely want Oggi on your team when it comes to navigating a Bay Area purchase or sale.
- Amanda F.
"very professional, trustworthy and follows up on everything"
We were very happy with everything Oggi Kashi did to help us buy our house in the city. My husband and I are from Europe where the real estate market is very different. Mr Kashi was very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed to purchase our house. He is very professional, trustworthy and follows up on everything.
- Servane & Olivier
"a fantastic real estate agent"
Oggi is a fantastic real estate agent! He helped us to buy our Noe Valley home. He was our partner in the process; always taking our lead but staying on top of every offer, every property. We never had to worry that Oggi wasn’t on top of it. Not only is Oggi the consummate professional, he is also truly knowledgeable about the SF market. We had just moved to SF from NYC, so we were relying on our agent to help us navigate. Oggi was always one step ahead of us in doing research on properties, pulling stats, etc. He’s extremely organized. When he shows up for a full day of looking at properties, he has a binder ready that lists every home, maps of the area, bottles of water. When actually touring homes, he would point out details that we never would have noticed, both good and bad. Even more impressive, though, is that Oggi still views himself as our partner 18 months later. He checks in periodically to how the home is working out for us. Just a few weeks ago, he helped me track down some local neighborhood data. When it comes time to buy our next home, Oggi will be our agent again.
- Alison & Jason
"I’m so glad I found Oggi Kashi"
Oggi is a consummate professional who listens attentively to the buyer's needs and desires. He's fast, efficient, charming and very effective as a negotiator. I have worked with one other agent who was also very reliable (Andrew LaMont), but because I was switching locations, I had to go with a new agent. I'm so glad I found Oggi Kashi.
- Yumi W.
"Hands down 5 stars across the board !!"
Oggi is the most helpful Real Estate Professional I have ever experienced. He has vast knowledge in what he does, and applies it quickly to get the job done right and efficiently. I would recommend him to anyone in need of the the best in the Realtor business. He goes out of his way to make sure your taken well care of and seems to take the well being and happiness of his clients very seriously. Hands down 5 stars across the board !!
- Joel D.
"provided us with top notch service"
Oggi is a true professional. He provided us with top notch service throughout the entire process. Without his diligence with the listing agent we would not have gotten the second chance we needed to get this property. During the escrow period he pushed the REO bank and their title company to get paperwork in on time so we could close quickly and get started with our remodel. I recomend him to anyone looking to buy a home in Marin or San Francisco.
- Brant H.
"expert knowledge of the market, excellent negotiation skills and extreme patience"
We bought a 3 bedroom contemporary condominium with Oggi in Twin Peaks. He provided us with the best service: expert knowledge of the market, excellent negotiation skills and extreme patience with us! I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in San Francisco.
- Cindy & Bertrand
"friendly, responsive, and dependable, with a great attention to detail"
Searching for property in San Francisco can be daunting. Oggi helped us find the perfect home for our family. This was no small feat considering our search criteria; location, new construction, amazing view of the city and bay. He always treated us with the utmost professionalism. He is friendly, responsive, and dependable, with a great attention to detail.
- Zillow User
"He was outstanding"
Oggi is, hands down, the best real estate agent we've worked with. He really understood our situation and truly was working to get us the right outcome. We had a couple of changes to our personal situation during the listing process, and he always focused on what was the best decision for us and how he could support us. It really felt like we had a trusted advisor in our corner, not simply someone looking to sell our house. I was also extremely impressed with the detailed strategy he prepared for listing and selling our house, his vast market knowledge and professionalism. On top of all of that, he's an expert negotiator and helped us get a much better outcome than we had expected. He was outstanding. People would be crazy to list with any other agent.
- Sallie & Josh
"He is the best!"
Oggi is, in a word, fantastic. I still can't believe our luck in finding him to help us with the sale of our San Francisco home. From day one, Oggi was unbelievably thorough, thoughtful, smart and conscientious. He provided us with a detailed comprables analysis, helped us through home renovations and staging, and sold our home in record time, with multiple offers, and for above asking. You can't really ask for more than that! I think perhaps the best example of Oggi's committment to his clients was the day of our first open house when we realized only hours before that the stagers had left a huge mess and had soiled our new carpets. Oggi came right over, and even in his impeccable "open house" suit, Oggi got down on his hands and knees with us to help us clean. We got it ready just in time, thanks to his help. Additionally, I can say with 100% assurance that I would wholeheartedly recommend Oggi, as I already have. He recently helped some of our closest friends sell their place as well, and I will happily continue to recommend him to anyone. He is the best!
- Tracy & Paul
"We highly recommend him with no reservations!"
Oggi came highly recommended from our mother's group forum. We were looking for a realtor to help us sell our condo as we were moving cross-country with two little ones. We had interviewed realtors across the board, and Oggi stood out from the first day we met him. Not only is he personable, but he is detailed-oriented and great to work with. He made the process so easy for us and worked with our hectic moving schedule as well as considering our kids as well. We were able to sell and close our place in less than month. We couldn't have asked for anything more. He helped coordinate with our painters and stagers as we had already moved. He kept us updated on his communications and the process. We highly recommend him with no reservations!
- Karen Z.
"unbelievably helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with"
Buying a home in the current market can be daunting. Oggi was unbelievably helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He has a great sense of what the final selling price will be. He also thinks of the small details, which we appreciate. When we are ready to sell or buy again, we would love to work with Oggi again.
- Kristen & Max
"a truly a professional and very caring and kind realtor"
Oggi is a truly a professional and very caring and kind realtor who will help you as if he is buying or selling Himself. He has in depth knowledge about the market and works very hard. He is very kind and works for the best interest of the client. You will be happy to work with him.
- Buddy K.
"knowledgable, responsive, and very helpful"
Oggi helped us sell our home in San Francisco and also buy a new home down in the peninsula. We had recently had our first child and Oggi was incredibly accommodating of our schedule and of being very efficient with showings so that it wasn't too disruptive to the baby's schedule. He is knowledgable, responsive, and very helpful when special circumstances arise. A fantastic realtor!
- Jill & Chris
"very dedicated, has strong local market expertise, is a good negotiator"
Oggi helped us buy our home in San Francisco. Having come from Europe and not being familiar with the American real estate process, Oggi was very helpful in guiding us along, from open houses to in-depth reviews of potential homes and from our initial offer one 1 place to the final bid on the 2nd. Oggi is very dedicated, has strong local market expertise, is a good negotiator and made the entire buying process very smooth. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
- Petra & Alex
"provided expert and relevant advice at each step"
We were very impressed with Oggi throughout the entire selling process, from our first meeting about house prep to close of escrow. Oggi provided expert and relevant advice at each step, and he could anticipate next steps and strategize appropriately. He always acted with our best interests in mind. We highly recommend Oggi!
- Kristopher K.
"He is very kind and professional"
My husband and I worked with Oggi to sell our condo in downtown SF. He was on top of everything from the start! He is very kind and professional, really cares about your goals. We moved to San Diego about a week before the place went on the market and were totally freaked out, but Oggi was masterful and sold our house in record time, negotiating an sales price that was so high i didn't believe the offer at first. He has a ton of contacts and our open houses were always busy. We also really like that he doesn't use a lock-box for the key, and is present at all showings. Our place was built in 1900 and had a few things that needed explaining (ie could have been major turn offs!) and it was nice he was there to explain stuff to potential buyers. We were so pleased with him and would definitely use him again! He also recommended great realtors in san diego!
- Shannon & Taylor
"always felt like we were in great hands"
Oggi was great throughout the whole process of helping us find a home. He is super knowledgeable about the current state of the market and San Francisco in general, was extremely thorough throughout the whole process and is such a nice person. We always felt like we were in great hands and like he had our best interests at heart.
- Kristine P.
"professional, courteous, thoughtful and a tremendous advisor"
My husband and I worked with Oggi to buy our first home in San Carlos. He came highly recommended by some friends who bought there as well, so we were cautiously optimistic that he could help us, too. We were not disappointed. From the first phone call through the last walk-through, Oggi was professional, courteous, thoughtful and a tremendous advisor. From being present at the walk-throughs, to answering our endless questions, to navigating the back-and-forth of the contract phase, to working closely with the mortgage broker and title company, we knew that we could count on him every step of the way. Can't say enough good things about Oggi - he's stellar!
- Myriam & Jon
"best real estate broker that we have ever met"
Oggi Kashi is the best real estate broker that we have ever met. He is professional, patient, knowledgeable, and goes the extra mile in customer service. He helped us for quite a while to find our dream home. Once we found “the house”, and our offer was accepted, he guided us through the whole process and explained every step. Before getting our pre-approval letter for a loan, Oggi told us that there was an outstanding lawsuit against the housing complex still in litigation after 3 years, so he advised us to inform the loan institution about this situation. The loan broker didn’t see any issue and told us we should pursue with the purchase and gave us the pre-approval letter. When we signed the contract with the seller and submitted all the papers for the loan, the lender institution became apprehensive to provide the loan, so Oggi went above and beyond by going to the court house to try and find out what stage the lawsuit was in. He also went to other real estate brokers whose clients obtained loans while this lawsuit was in progress, and found us another loan company that would sponsor the loan. We were so scared that we would forfeit our deposit for not making the closing date. He then guided us in securing the loan and on how to setup the extension with the seller. As you can imagine this was a very stressful time for us, and Oggi always remained calm and responsive to all our unending questions. We were out of our comfort zone due to all these closing delayed issue, but Oggi was a very supportive influence and positive and knowledgeable inspiration. He was always available, not matter what time we were calling him or emailing him. He never left a phone call or email unresponsive. We are eternally grateful for his experience and expertise in dealing with extraordinary real estate issues, and we couldn’t have purchased our dream home without his dedicated help and professionalism. After this experience, we recommend Oggi to everybody because we know that he will do an excellent job with a potential buyer or seller.
- Lillian & Guy
"was always available to answer questions day or night"
Oggi is an incredible realtor. I was recommended by my brother, who has made around 7 real estate transactions with Oggi and I can see why. Purchasing real estate in the SF Bay Area is... difficult, to say the least, with high prices, conniving listings and a myriad of issues relating to older homes with potential issues. I worked with Oggi on and off for about 1.5 years to find my perfect home. He was always available to answer questions day or night and walked me through every aspect of the home buying process. When we finally found a home we wanted to purchase, Oggi laid out the entire process with smart advice on the offer details and contingencies. During our short escrow period, Oggi pre-scheduled all the inspections to ensure we were able to meet the various deadlines during closing with complete knowledge of the property we were purchasing. He also connected us with an architect to provide a quick assessment on the potential remodeling opportunities for the property. Oggi fought hard for each and every item listed in the contract and has continued to be a great asset post-purchase, providing us with recommendations for electricians and handy-people. Oggi is a fantastic realtor and will work hard to find you a house that you can call a home, and be incredibly happy with the results.
- Jason E.
"We’d work with him again in a minute"
Oggi is a wonderful person and great realtor. He helped us to find the perfect place for us within our budget in a very tough market. Once we got into contract, his negotiation skills really came into play - he fought tenaciously to get problems fixed and we always felt like he had our backs. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and the process, and on top of it all he is a truly nice person. We'd work with him again in a minute... although we're not leaving our new place for a long long time - we love it!
- Brian C.
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike"
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike. He was incredibly thorough in his approach - including building out comparable sets, providing tailored searches, and creating appropriate offers. He never pushed us out of our comfort zone in terms of budget and neighborhoods. He was very honest and knowledgeable about the San Francisco market and would be the ideal broker to help someone wade through the market's intense competition.
- Emily T.
"I could not recommend her more!"
I have worked with Laura on two transactions now (a purchase and a sale). She was absolutely wonderful to work with. Laura is super knowledgable, has excellent communication, and made the entire process so smooth and painless for me. She was great at keeping the ball rolling throughout both transactions and was able to get me exactly what I had desired. I could not recommend her more!Thanks, Laura!
- Erica M.
"…great knowledge of the market"
Very responsive with great knowledge of the market. It was my first time buying a property and he was a huge help throughout the process. I'm from Europe and had little experience with the process for buying a property in the US and the market in the Bay Area. Thanks to Oggi everything went very smoothly.
"I can’t recommend him highly enough"
I acted as property manager and liaison with Mike to help my mother in law sell her home in the Mission this past Fall. We interviewed several very experienced and successful brokers who had worked in the area, but after meeting Mike we were sold. It was the best decision we made in the selling process. Mike exceeded every (admittedly high) expectations and made the process so relaxed and comfortable. He is a down to earth guy and a pleasure to deal with, but he also possesses a killer instinct and deep knowledge of the market. There's no bull with Mike, just great ideas and even better execution. I can't recommend him highly enough.
- Amanda W.
"Laura is a force of real estate savvy nature!"
Laura is a force of real estate savvy nature! Not only is she well connected in the SF market and knowledgeable, she is also kind and approachable. She truly is awesome.It was our first time selling an apartment in SF and we were nervous. Laura was patient and full of answers for all of our questions. She was accommodating of our schedules and agreed to selling our home off list so we didn’t have to disrupt our lives.We met Laura in the middle of October. Not even a week later we had an offer in hand, over asking! She was amazingly efficient - scheduling inspections, meeting the new owners, shepherding our closing documents. On it all with a smile! She was easy to get ahold of at all hours, text, email, etc. Sometimes, just providing us reassurance that it’s all going well. It was absolutely pain free. We closed in less than 3 weeks. Laura met us with cookies at the escrow office so sign the final documents.My husband and I are truly grateful to have worked with her. Do yourself a favor and work with Laura!
- Leyla A.
"Thank you Oggi!"
We were very fortunate to be put in touch with Oggi Kashi to represent us for a purchase of a home in San Francisco. We particularly appreciated his patience as we struggled to define what we were looking for. Oggi was there for us for whichever option we were considering at the moment offering knowledgable, non judgmental and constructive advice. Thank you! We were expecting a painfully stressful purchase process and we got hardly any stress at all. And we got the first house we bidded on! All thanks to Oggi's wonderful way with people, impressive negotiation skills, and organizational perfection. Thank you Oggi!
