Lana is an absolute rock star on the sell side. She has sold two homes for us - nailed both with multiple offers after just 1 or 2 weekends of open houses. She managed some cosmetic improvement work before the sale, recommended vendors, met them at the home. It was a huge help! She is incredibly responsive to any question and concern which was very important to us. Definitely recommend!

Lana did a fantastic job helping us find a home on the peninsula. We had recently relocated to the Bay Area for work and were unfamiliar with the area. Lana spent a lot of time showing us the various neighborhoods across the peninsula and shared a lot of insights as to what the benefits/trade-offs were across the many towns of interest. She was highly responsive and worked hard to get us into any home of interest any day of the week. In the end, we found a home we really loved fairly quickly and Lana's guidance helped us win the offer. Highly advise working with her, best agent I've worked with!

We worked with Lana to sell our house when I was relocated to another city. We had to move quickly and needed someone who could manage the sale of the house as we moved. Lana handled all the details; market evaluation, painting and minor repairs, staging and listing the property. She was very helpful in managing the details while keeping us informed at every step. Where Lana really excelled though was when we prepared to list the house. She did a thorough review of comparable listings and suggested a competitive pricing strategy. Once we listed we had quite a bit of traffic and were listed as a "hot house" on Redfin. Because of her work and pricing strategy we received 12 offers and were able to sell our house at %30 above the asking price.

It is with great pleasure that I write this review for Lana Morin Pierce. After all the wonderful things Lana has done for me and my family in our search for our new home, it's the least I can do. Lana can easily be described as the best real estate agent that I have ever worked with, and I've worked with several across the country. My family recently moved to the San Mateo area from Maine, and we knew nothing about the area or what to expect from the purchasing process. Lana offered to give us a tour of the area and gave us her unbiased opinion about different neighborhoods. As we began our buying process, she provided clear and concise feedback (every state has different laws and procedures for buying a home), and she was always on top of every step in the buying process. She made time to meet with us and contractors at the property on multiple occasions. Speaking of contractors, she works with some of the best, and if she doesn't know a specific contractor for a specific job, she's going to find the best for you. She's eager to serve and she does it with grace and finesse. With Lana, you are going to get professional, reliable, white-gloved service. On top of that, you will get to know someone who genuinely cares about her clients and will treat you like you're a part of her family. Without a doubt, Lana Morin Pierce is the right agent for you.

Lana was excellent - she helped us sell our home this past year. Would highly recommend. We appreciated her experience level, expertise (corp relocs) and negotiation skills...three factors that were important to us in selecting a realtor/partner. She is also a very nice/warm person, and that factored into our decision as well. Would highly recommend and use again in Bay Area.

Lana Pierce was fantastic! She was always on top of every detail, quick to respond and extremely helpful. I was out of town frequently and Lana was always in contact and available to answer questions. She follows through, keeps things on track and delivers! I highly recommend Lana Pierce.

We relocated to peninsula area from east coast and was looking for a new place. Lana went above and beyond to help us find the home we love. She is very capable and patient with us. Since we had a limited timeline to work with, she always got things done in a timely manner. Most importantly, I think she cares about her client and we felt very comfortable working with her. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking in peninsula area!
Darcy R., San Bruno
I would highly recommend Lana Morin Pierce to anyone seeking a very professional, knowledgeable, and diplomatic real estate agent. The sale of this property was difficult to say the least. Lana calmly handled all the negotiations with tact and determination, completing the transaction while keeping our interests foremost and on track. It was a pleasure working with her and I am very grateful for all her hard work and everything she has done. Thank you so much Lana!

From start to finish, my husband and I enjoyed working with Lana! We recommend her to all our friends! Once we decided it was time to leave the San Francisco city life behind, we began to look for an agent to help us narrow down our search. A co-worker recommended Lana, and we could not be more grateful. During our first meeting Lana took the time to take us through what the next steps would be and actually helped us narrow down where we can get the best home for our budget. She set the right expectations and never showed us something that was outside our reach. She answered all our first home buyer questions and was aggressive in the negotiation process with sellers. She is also super reachable! We appreciated her directness and transparency. Once our offer was accepted, she project managed the most annoying process of home buying, dealing with our loan processor. We actually were on a vacation in Hawaii during closing, she made sure that a remote notary was set up by our loan processor and title company. When we had to delay the closing 1 day, she worked with the sellers agent to manage expectations. After we moved into our home she continues to offer support with recommendations and to reach out for any issues. When we out grow our home, we will not hesitate to reach out to Lana.

We were looking to purchase a starter home in the mid-Peninsula. Anyone who has experienced this or is "testing the waters" knows that this is an absolutely insane situation to be in. There is very little time to make decisions and you have to seek lots of opinions and expert advices! This where Lana was super helpful! She set the right expectations. She has in-depth knowledge of all parts of home-buying and was able to demonstrate that when we visited properties. Also what was impressive was her ability to understand and anticipate our mindset throughout the whole process. There were a few occasions where we had a change-of-heart at the last minute or had to pull out "not so gracefully"; But Lana stood by us, protecting our interest gracefully. Working with her was wonderful and the only predictable part of the home-buying experience. After just 4 months, we purchased a property and would definitely recommend Lana for her knowledge, connections, super-fast communication, speed of execution and her ability to protect the client.

Lana is an excellent realtor! She is very experienced, knowledgeable, and practical about the real estate market. Lana is also very kind and personable. I always felt like we can ask her questions and advice about how to proceed. She sold our one bed/one bath condo in Redwood Shores, and she got us into contract with buying a house two weeks later! She told us in the very beginning of the process, that she never has clients who need to bid on houses more than three times. Sure enough, we bid on one house and we got it. We are so thankful for all the help she gave us! She literally held our hands through the whole process. We sold a property and bought a new one within a couple months, thanks to her! Not an easy thing to do in this competitive, Bay Area market! Thank you Lana! We would recommend her to anyone we know.
Lana was thorough, expedient, and fun to work with. As first time buyers we had an endless series of questions and she was perpetually patient in answering all of them. She helped us navigate the difficult Bay Area market and, as a result, with her help, we were able zero in on the right bid for the right property the first time. Suffice it to say that Lana is a closer, in the best way possible.

Brought in Lana to find a tenant for a special, one-of-a-kind Eichler home we own. She readily understood our needs and the kind of tenant we wanted, and immediately began targeting her marketing. Two to three weeks later she brought (what appears to us thus far) the ideal candidate to the table. In the end, it was a keeper. All along our journey Lana was responsive, trustworthy, honest, realistic, upbeat, communicative, and a joy to work with. We’re quite happy with our experience—and of course the results. Thanks, Lana...

Lana is an awesome agent! She is great at navigating through the Bay Area area market, which we are new to and would have never made it through without her! She is very attentive to details and is available to help answer questions. She's the type of person who will tell you the truth and if the doesn't know something she will be honest and tell you that too. That is a very admirable quality and makes you trust her even more. I would recommend her to anyone!
Elizabeth D., Foster City
Lana is an amazing realtor and was so patient with our process. We met with her initially about 3 years ago, never followed through, but this time we were ready. She was always available and we never felt like we were on our own. She helped us to filter through multiple properties in order to decide on what we really wanted. Even since our purchase, whenever we have a question, she readily helps out. She is very knowledgable, helpful, and really knows her business. I recommend her highly, without exception.
Adrienne H., Redwood City
We had somewhat of a difficult sale because things kept popping up at inopportune times. Lana was always there for us and had an answer of how to handle the situation and kept us abreast of everything. I would definitely recommend her as she was very knowledgable, professional, and understanding.
I always felt as though I was in good hands.
Pat & Karen
We had a quick relocation, and Lana was tremendously helpful. She arranged for two days of showings on short notice and was very efficient. Then, when we found our house, she quickly worked through presenting an offer within hours. When accepted, she was very conscientious and helped us get to close and in within a couple of weeks. Thanks Lana.
