"Gemma Paybarah is a skilled and stable ship navigating the ever-changing and complicated sea that is San Francisco real estate. My partner and I could not be happier with the results she yielded for us in both selling our home and purchasing another. About a year ago, we started our search without any representation. After attending several open houses it was clear we needed someone who not only had solid contacts and market insight, but also the patience to match our needs with a diverse selection of available apartments. Gemma's strategy was innovative, flexible, and very effective. The process of selling and buying is fast-paced, exciting, and intense at times. Writing from the living room in our new home, clearly, Gemma was the perfect choice."
--Brian and Collin Castro


"Gemma & Joe were just wonderful to work with. They helped us navigate the complex terrain of buying in the San Francisco area. We learned so much from them and were very impressed with their integrity. We will use them again, and refer them to others, whenever we have the opportunity."
--Lisa, Chuck, and Cameron


"Throughout my search for a condo in San Francisco I came to realize (the hard way) that there is a drastic difference in the quality of realtors and loan officers that are available to help you throughout the process. I knew that Gemma would be the right realtor when she was able to very articulately explain the specific distinctions of TIC ownership, a question I had posed to others and not received an adequate answer on. Gemma was frequently advising me on properties that might interest me prior to their posting on MLS, never tried to pressure me into an offer or a price point, and did not express frustration in that I was frequently looking at condos with asking prices above what I was able to offer. In addition, Gemma has a good support network at Zephyr who helped me when she was on vacation."


"Gemma helped me with the search & purchase of my condo in SOMA. She's great to work with and really understood exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely use her for my next real estate transaction."


"Gemma has been a wonderful realtor for our family. She provided attentive and very personal service throughout our search for a new home. She is characterized by enthusiasm and energy as well as sensitive understanding of her clients' individual needs."
--Melissa, Tomo, and Marie


"Gemma helped me look for a condo/house for my daughter and family. She was very thorough and made a special effort to find out what my daughter and husband wanted and to show us properties that were possible buys. She is friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend her."
--Mary Barnett


"Gemma Wells is super nice and always positive, I've work with her twice and really appreciate her professionalism."


"Gemma was very helpful in finding me my first house. She's a hard worker and really knows about her field. I liked how she kept me up to date with details during the process. In the begining I was looking for a fixer-upper because it was ideally affordable for me, but with all the hard searching and the help of her partner Lucy (financial), I was able to close on a clean SF single family home with a remodeled kitchen for the price of a fixer-upper in SF (in the same neighborhood!)Thanks Gemma.. Couldn't have done it without ya!"


"Gemma is a "GEM!" What a totally sweet, patient, knowledgeable, smart, funny, professional, hip real estate sales person! I would recommend Gemma to everyone who is looking for small to gi-normous homes in the Bay Area. She found me a fantastic place in a week, but due to the crazy real estate/mortgage banking market, I was not able to nail it financially this time around..but I will someday soon! She just rocks and everyone should contact Gemma first because she just gets it."


"It's been about a year since I closed on my condo. I am still impressed with what Gemma was able to accomplish for me. I purchased a unit that was a short sale with two different loans. One of the loans had even gone to collections. Gemma guided me through the process and helped calm my nerves numerous times while we were in extended escrow. On top of that, the building was involved in litigation which made most lenders stay away. Gemma used her extensive network of contacts to help me find a lender that would work with us. This was made even trickier because I needed to finance via FHA. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend Gemma to anyone looking to purchase property in San Francisco."
