"We worked with Alisa on our fourth property purchase, though the first in Marin. She is exceptional in every respect, a black belt. Alisa has deep market knowledge -- location, schools, property history, documents, other real estate professionals -- from many years as an agent in market, as well as the inside perspective of someone who was raised in the neighborhood. As a Berkeley undergraduate and Harvard trained lawyer she is unusually astute and capable. She also had the "ear and eye" to empathize with our property needs, desires and constraints in order to guide us towards opportunities that matched. Alisa was patient, low pressure, completely professional in dealings/communication and very energetic in finding opportunities and managing process. We love Alisa." -- Barbara Merz

"When it came time to sell the family home of 60 years in Marin County it was somewhat emotional and my wife and I were a little apprehensive; however, having Alisa Knobbe Wynd as our realtor made all the difference. Her knowledge, professionalism, and advice was spot on, not to mention all the effort she put into making sure everything went right and on schedule. Her advice and experience regarding what to fix and how to stage the house made all the difference. Bottom line, the house sold quickly and for us it was effortless, because she did the heavy lifting. We have bought and sold eight properties and Alisa was unquestionably the best. We would certainly recommend her to any of our family, friends, and acquaintances." -- Steve and Deanne Larkin

"We were trying to get a house for nine months working with another agent....then we met Alisa, and a month latter we were moved in! Having her to help us in the process of first recognizing what it was that we were searching for, then finding it, and finally obtaining it, was absolutely a wonderful experience. She was super professional, organized and efficient, but at the same time patient and truly caring to help us do what we thought was best for us. Throughout the entire process she was a step ahead of us, considering different options and foreseeing possible issues and problems, as well as offering solutions, which made buying home almost effortless and certainly way less stressful. We feel so grateful to have had her on our side!" -- Tamara and Phillip Marsh

"Alisa is five star all the way! We interviewed many very impressive brokers to list our home and luckily we were recommended Alisa by a very trusted friend at the end of our search. We met her at 7pm and knew we had made a match by 7:15pm. She is very down to earth and smart as a whip! Her early years as an attorney has added to her value as an advocate for her clients and we were able to voice our opinions, contrary and in line. Her soft negotiating skills brought clarity for the best deal for both sides to feel a win win. Thank you so much Alisa!" -- Christina Donna and Robert Paterson

"Alisa is by far the best agent we've ever used. She's honest, smart (an attorney), savvy and knows the neighborhoods in Marin like no one else. I would never use anyone else!" -- Isabelle Finney

"As a professional fiduciary, I engaged Alisa to sell several properties. Of special value to me was her legal training and ability to recognize the depth of unusual issues and respond appropriately. She has provided unique assistance in dealing with difficult sellers and created a sale significantly above the asking price. She is a pleasure to work with." -- Posie Conklin

"My husband and I are first time home buyers and worked with Alisa to purchase our home. Alisa was the perfect realtor for us, very professional, organized, responsive, efficient and knowledgeable, and really knew the area well.

She took the time to get to know us and all of our quirks and needs, and all along the way helped with all the challenges of buying a home.

Most of all, we are grateful for your honesty, kindness, and intelligence." -- Phil and Pam Harvey

"Besides knowing the market and learning my needs, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your patience and good humor throughout what can be a very trying process.

She was a wonderful listener and really took into account our specific needs and desires. Being a long-time, well-connected Marin resident, Alisa brought extensive knowledge of neighborhoods, schools and amenities to the table.

It is with utter confidence and sheer enthusiasm that we recommend Alisa." -- Sharon Portnoy and Mark Danzig

"You demonstrated admirable professionalism and innovation in preparing the house for sale, setting a price, developing and implementing a strategy to maximize early and positive engagement of potential buyers, addressing multiple offers, and working through the closing effort. We enjoyed your enthusiasm and positive attitude as you faced a tough challenge in getting the house to market with such a tight deadline. We would highly recommend you as an agent to anyone desiring to sell a house in Marin." -- Erik and Lan Innes

"We could not be happier in this house and are so grateful for your help in getting us here. The thing that I especially loved about working with you is that you obviously listened to us. You never showed us a home that did not reflect our style preferences and other priorities - and you clearly understood what points of the negotiation mattered to us and which ones did not. Finally, I was very grateful for your high level of professionalism. I appreciated the constant, calm updates, and obvious attention to every last detail." -- Judy and Bob Agnew

"When we needed to find a family home fast after we changed our minds about another purchase we turned to Alisa. She quickly understood our needs and found us what has turned out to be the perfect house in record time. Alisa was wonderful to work with, responsive, attentive, knowledgeable and always patient with our concerns and queries. When complex contractual issues arose, Alisa drew on her own experience and the resources of Frank Howard Allen to deal with each and every one to our satisfaction. We are now in a wonderful home, in a location that we love and delighted to recommend Alisa to anyone looking for a concientious and intelligent Realtor." -- Rose and Chris Barlow

"When we finally made the decision to proceed with selling our home, Alisa was already on top of the market and thoroughly familiar with our needs. This is where Alisa went above and beyond in her efforts. We were already living in Southern California, and throughout the entire preparation, marketing, closing and "post-closing" periods, Alisa provided us with her "eyes and ears" on site whenever we could not be present. There was just not a single issue that she did not act professionally and proactively upon. I can't imageine how we would have sold our home without her commitment in representing us so very well. Alisa's skills in pricing the property were evident, and we appreciated her various strategies in this regard, her recommendations regarding minor repairs and staging turned out to be just right for our situation; and her representation of our desires during the multi-staged negotiations on dozens of issues brought solutions that were considered fair to both sides. She never avoided the difficult issues, nor shirked on any details that could have gotten our buyer off track. We couldn't be happier with the result, and we can't imagine how the sale could have been handled any better. We would highly recommend Alisa to anyone else. She is truly a special person and a most professional realtor." -- David and Dianna McGinnis

"As a Senior Loan Officer with RPM Morgage, I recently had an opportunity to work with Alisa on a real estate purchase transaction. She exemplified exactly what you hope for in a real estate agent, especially in this challenging economic climate: incredibly communicative, resourceful, knowledgeable, creative, and calm. I would highly recommend Alisa to any potential client looking to buy or sell real estate in Marin County, and personally look forward to working with her again soon." -- Doug Burrows, mortgage broker
