Noreleen was an absolute pleasure to work with. I was buying a place from Canada; and she patiently explained the whole process to me while working through multiple failed attempts at bidding for homes in the hot San Francisco market.
Despite the geographical and time-zone challenges during the home hunting process; Noreleen's promptness, conscientiousness, and diligence ultimately got us our home after 5 months of searching and multiple bids.
On a personal side, Noreleen has a great personality; she's always positive, optimistic and uses humour to lighten the mood when needed when things get rough in the process. I consider her both a professional Real Estate Agent and one of my first friends in the Bay Area.
I have no hesitation in recommending Noreleen to anyone who's looking to buy a home in the SF Bay Area.
---Ricky and Carmen T. (Daly City)
Noreleen was very helpful throughout the home buying process. She was very responsive and quick on follow ups via email or phone. She explained in detailed any process that was new to us. She also provided valuable advice to make appropriate offers on the homes we were interested in. I would happily recommend Noreleen to anyone who's looking to buy a home.
---Manan P. (Belmont)
I have already recommended Noreleen to several people who have talked about looking for a home.
---Brian R. (San Francisco)
Noreleen is incredible. Friendly, hard-working and always available to make things happen. We are so glad that was our agent.
---Jonathan and Danishka E. (Alameda)
Here are the reasons why Noreleen is a great agent:
1) She'll take care of everything. Throughout the buying process, particularly during escrow, she helped to schedule and coordinate everything. She was particularly helpful in securing appointments and ensuring that I had all the experts and inspectors I needed for this property. As a first-time home buyer, this was invaluable.
2) She is excellent at communication and negotiation. For each property I was interested in, she was able to tell me everything I needed to know about what the sellers were looking for in offer terms. This was very important as it allowed me to make the most informed decision about which houses to make offers for and how much those offers should be and it saved me money on the property I did end up purchasing.
3) She is not pushy at all. She was able to give me the information I needed but also left me with complete control over the decision making. She gave advice when asked, and made sure I was getting what I wanted. Noreleen will follow your instructions thoroughly and intelligently.

Noreleen was personable, thorough, very organized, and always kept me updated on the sale process. She is that dream real estate agent who is there for you every step of the way. She was very clear about what to expect, and handled everything professionally. She really knew the market trends in the different neighborhoods and her pricing recommendation was dead on. I had a tenant in my place and she did a wonderful job explaining to my tenant the process of putting my place on the market and how the tenant would be impacted by the sale. I would definitely work with her again if I had to buy or sale properties, and highly endorse her as one of the best real estate agents out there!
---Jennifer & Glenn (Oakland)
Noreleen is the consummate professional. She guided us through the entire process of selling my mother's home. She listened our needs and was very patient...I would highly recommend working with her!
---Mary Y. (Richmond)
As a first time home buyer, working with Noreleen has definitely made the entire buying process easy. She is very professional, very attentive to what you have to say and consistently provides quick turnaround on calls and emails. I definitely benefited from having an agent that can move quickly in today's competitive market. She knows the market well and offers insights to the neighborhoods you are targeting and the real estate landscape in general. Overall Noreleen provides a high level of customer service from the moment you pick up the phone through the moment you pick up the keys. I would absolutely recommend and work with her again.
---Michael W. (Oakland)
Noreleen is the absolute best. She is the Bomb.com and I strongly recommend that you enlist her services in your housing hunt. I was a first time home buyer and managed to find a great property in Alameda, even though I was certain that I was priced out of that market. Noreleen turned me on to a bank owned REO. We won a forclosure auction and she was instrumental in getting a 30 day close for me done so that I could get the keys quickly and move in. She went above and beyond in every way, I have absolutely no buyers remorse thanks to Noreleen.
---Benjamin M. (Alemeda)
Noreleen over-delivered. She helped me with every step of the process, arranged everything to ensure a smooth connection. She is friendly and firm on negotiations with the listing agent and seller. Noreleen is very responsive, by phone, text or email. If I called her and she wasn't available at the moment, I have never had to wait for more than 10 minutes to hear back from her. At the same time, she never puts pressure on me. If I am unsure about something and have second thought, or want certain addendum, she gave me the time and space to think through, and always quick and accurate on the addendum. Overall, I had a great experience working with Noreleen. I highly recommend her .
--- John H. (San Francisco)
We are absolutely happy with Noreleen handling the selling of our condo. With only one weekend of open house she was able to make a contract with an aggressive buyer at a higher price.
--- Josefina and John M. (San Mateo)
Fantastic experience from day one. Noreleen is a professional, willing to help you find the home you're looking for and nice enough to buy you some cake when you move in!
--- Kevin and Lucy B. (Pacifica)
Noreleen recently completed a probate sale for me. Throughout this process I found her to be responsive, reliable, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. Her expertise and guidance resulted in a price above listing after just one open house. She went out of her way to inform and assist me well before I became her client. I highly recommend Noreleen!
--- Dennis S., (San Bruno)
It was truly our pleasure to have worked with Noreleen. She was incredibly responsive at all hours through all channels (email, phone, text) and detailed oriented throughout the whole process. We were first time home buyers and of course knew nothing about home buying. Noreleen always kept our best interest in mind and guided us through every step of the way. Even after we received our keys, she still maintains communication with us and provides us with as much resources as possible. Noreleen is no longer a random real estate agent but definitely a friend for life.
--- Bill Z. & Cindy H. (San Francisco)
It was a real pleasure working with Noreleen on the sale of my condo. She is very knowledgeable and efficient, personable yet always professional. I really appreciate that she kept me informed throughout the process and was very responsive whenever I had any questions. I would highly recommend her to all my family and friends. I will definitely call Noreleen when I am ready to purchase a home.
--- Cindy L. (Fremont)
I was extremely pleased with Norleen's professional and exceptionally meticulous work helping me sell the 199 Montecito Ave (Oakland) condo for a very desirable price. I got the impression the Realtor on the buyer side was a bit disingenuous, but Norleen delicately handled the negotiations with success. BTW, Norleen was a joy to work with and always promptly got back to me.
---David G. (Oakland)
Words cannot express how happy I am with finding Noreleen. Buying a first home is never easy but Noreleen guided me efficiently and expertly through the whole home buying process. She an incredible resource and I would highly recommend Noreleen’s services to everyone and going to use her in future.
--- Svetlana Y. (San Bruno)
Noreleen is an outstanding Realtor who places the needs of her clients ahead of her own. She sold my condo in San Francisco with amazing results.
--- Chris T. (San Francisco)
Noreleen is a gem. She walked us through every part of the short sale process, from beginning to end, with great care and attention. Whenever we had a question or were frustrated by the process, she was only a phone call away. She helped us understand the process fully. If you need to sell your property through a short sale, Noreleen is your agent!
--- Maria and Mehrdad H. (Pacifica)
From the previous painful and costly experience we had with a real estate agent when buying our home we wanted to make sure we had the BEST agent possible...She knew exactly how to price our home, list the home, select a buyer and recognized when and who to get involved with the lender. We can actually say, from our perspective, this transaction was flawless...Seriously, she is the BEST and the only regret we have is that we didn't contact her sooner.
--- Sara and Michael G. (South San Francisco)
I enthusiastically recommend Noreleen de Mesa and Clarin Realty to anyone interested in selling real estate - particularly those facing a challenging sale or a short sale. She knows the ropes, she is persistent, yet professional and really makes the extra effort to guarantee success. Good service is a rare thing these days. I am so happy I selected Noreleen and Clarin Reality to represent me as my real estate agent. They exceeded all my expectations, and I hope they will exceed yours too!
--- Darnisha W. (Oakland)
I don’t know what I would have done without her. Even with young kids of her own, she still finds the time for her clients whenever they need her. I don’t know how she does it. Once you have found Noreleen de Mesa, your search for the ideal real estate agent is over. She is as good as they get. If she was a product sold by Amazon.com I would rate her 5 stars only because there aren’t any more stars available.
--- Jere Y. (San Bruno)
I will be forever grateful to Noreleen for helping me short sale my property. I really thought I had no other option but to foreclose and it was scaring me to death. My bank just refused to work with me and the hours I'd spend on the phone with them got me nowhere. Just when I was about to give up, I was referred to Noreleen and she was so kind, knowledgable and reassured me that we can get my property sold. She guided me through all the steps of the short sale and explained everything to me so it was easy to understand. During the process she always kept me updated on the status with the bank and made sure everything was taken care of with my best interests in mind. I literally did not have to worry about a thing. Noreleen is a professional and can help you when you think you have no other options. She will work with you to come up with the best plan possible for your situation. She is someone that you can definitely put your full confidence and trust in. Please don't think foreclosure is the only answer, Noreleen at Clarin Realty can help!
--- Adriana L. (San Francisco)
I want to thank and give my appreciation to Noreleen de Mesa of Clarin Realty. She is a professional and a top Real Estate Agent. I received her flyer in the mail and it came at the almost timing of our despair of need. I can say, that Noreleen has a grasp of how to present your case to the Bank's Negotiator and she is diligent in working for you. Thank you so much Noreleen. I will refer you to all my friends and family, if need of a great Real Estate Agent with your experience. I know they will be in good hands.
--- Lisa L. (San Mateo)
Noreleen De Mesa went above and beyond to help sell my house. Sheput my house on the market and I received an offer 2 days after the open house. She was very confident that it will sell immediately. She was right! I didn’t feel that I had to worry because she was on top of everything from the beginning until the end of closing. The transaction became very personal for me and I am really pleased that everything worked out. I would highly recommend her as an agent for selling and buying a property.
--- Leila B. (Daly City)
Noreleen is knowledgeable and a great agent. She was my second agent after an unsatisfied experience with a realtor I dealt with. She helped me understand my option and choices and that makes her an outstanding realtor. Highly recommended!
--- Anna S. (Oakland)
My family has been really blessed to have the wonderful opportunity to work with Noreleen. She has a lovely personality and advocates for her clients like a tiger. During the time I worked with Noreleen, I found myself at ease conducting business with her. In my opinion, everybody we met was pleased to work with her because of her strong energy and positive vibe. Noreleen was really responsive to my text messages, phone calls, and emails. When I spoke with Noreleen I find myself always talking to a friend. She is not an average realtor she offers her unconditional friendship and is somebody that you want to keep as a long term friend. I can't find the words to describe how great and helpful she was and continues to be. She goes above and beyond to help accomplish your goals and defends your interests. I always saw Noreleen dedicating a lot of time, energy, and always working really hard. I would strongly recommend Noreleen and definitely would love to work with her again in any future real estate transaction.
