About Sabina Alieva-Girsh
describe your journey to real estate.
I first visited the Bay Area in the late nineties, having fallen in love with the region and the culture - I decided to settle down. I was inspired by architecture since early childhood. My mother, who was a well known architect, exposed me to the dreams on paper before they were build to life-size works of art. Ever since then I loved to discover modern and classic architecture in the beautiful Bay Area. I have always had a special place in my heart for beautiful and unusual buildings.
I excel in providing top level clients’ service and always striving to provide unique approach to each client. My heart jumps every time I have an opportunity to help someone move to a new house that they can call home. Being both, a mother of three vibrant young girls and a supportive wife, gives me dual perspectives on Real Estate and life.

Sabina is professional and yet REAL. She can relate to real situations that affects buying/selling etc. My family was moving East and the first day we met her and chat about our situation, she listened and consulted with us on options that can be done to get our home sold. A day later she had sent us an email detailing all the options including estimates of costs. I was very impressed with her professionalism, her knowledge on what she does and the opportunity to look through the options she provided us and choose what works for me and my family. She was able to get us the best price for our place and took care of everything, Escrow, documentations and so forth. All we did was sign papers. My family was in the middle of moving to the East but within 6 weeks from our first chat, home was sold, escrow was closed and we received our house proceeds in our account. My family and I are so grateful that we were able to come across her and her services. I get nervous with big transactions such as these whether buying or selling because of all the crazy things you read on the news, but with her personable personality, knowledge and expertise in her field, it made me feel comfortable and trust that I was in good hands. Thank You again, Sabina! I hope you know YOU ROCK!

Sabina helped me with all my needs to sell my condo. Her advises were very helpful and knowledgeable. I needed to sell very fast and Sabina were able to close my deal in 2,5 weeks instead of the 30 days. I highly recommend Sabina with any Real Estate services. She is on point, knows her time lines. Very polite and professional.

I was a first time home buyer in the Bay Area. It was overwhelming and scary to say the least. Sabina was very good at picking the right area for me to live in and the best possible home for all my needs. Her patience and negotiation skills paid off as she navigated lots of competition and push backs with ease. When we walked inside my dream home I was so impressed I wanted to move in right away. Sabina will be very good at finding the perfect home for you. I love my new home and this was a job well done!
