what it's like to work with Haley
"My home in Mill Valley was recently sold by Haley Tone, a rising star at Vanguard Properties and an expert in real estate in San Francisco (where she lives) and Marin (where she grew up.) Haley is superb at what she does. Smart, detail oriented, organized, and positive, she was possibly born to sell houses—though her degree is in Art History from Williams College. She was instrumental in getting my house (and me) ready for sale and a calming influence throughout the process. In the end, the house had five offers and sold in a week—all above asking price!"
"When we started looking to buy our first house, we were looking for our forever home. Ideally, this would be the one and only time we were on the market for a house. And so, it was a pretty big deal for us. We felt immensely lucky to have Haley navigating us through the process.
As first time homebuyers, our top priority was to have a realtor who would make us feel comfortable. I knew that I would have a million questions and some of them would sound silly, and I wanted to work with someone who would make me feel like it was okay to ask all of those questions. Haley did just that. With Haley, every question was valid, if she didn’t know an answer right away she did the necessary research, and she was always available to answer all of our texts, and phone calls, and emails. She made time for us. When we saw a house we liked, she made a point to take one or both of us back for a second visit within a day or two. She would make the trek over to the East Bay on our behalf at the drop of a hat.
We also really appreciate how honest Haley was with us. She was upfront about the compromises we would be making with any given house, and we never felt like she was pushing us just so she could make a sale. She made our best interests her top priority. And, when the house buying process got overwhelming and frustrating, Haley reminded us not to settle for anything less than what would be best for our growing family. She held on to our vision for us and with us. We couldn’t be more grateful and we couldn’t recommend her more. (P.S. We love our house!)"
"Haley did an incredible job selling our home in Greenbrae! I think from our first discussions about the listing, to the closing date, was a total of about 4 weeks! Not only did she assess the market, set the price, and quickly identify candidate buyers, but she managed a quick series of price negotiations that resulted in us achieving the highest price ever in our neighborhood!.
I can’t speak highly enough of Haley’s skills, energy and professionalism."

"Haley Tone is about as good as it gets in Reality and I'm so pleased that she is getting the recognition to back it up. Not only is she one of the loveliest people, she made our first home buying experience in this crazy SF market smooth and never lost site of the excitement we felt at purchasing our first home (in this crazy market).
Haley is one of the calmest and intuitive realtors I've ever met. She is a great listener. She is honest, warm, enthusiastic and full of integrity. Magically, she managed to shield us from the craziness and found us a beautiful home within 7 months of us first meeting her to explore whether purchasing in SF was even an option. She never lost sight of our needs, worked with our quirks and inconsistencies, was available to view or talk through a property option, always had great connections who in turn proved equally professional and trustworthy. She wasn't pushy, yet we felt like we really had someone on our side, representing us for who we are.
If you are lucky enough to work with Haley, you'll get a realtor who really is working for you and who cares about you getting the home that you actually want. I really, really enjoyed her company and her style and personality contributed immensely to our enjoyment of the home buying experience."
