Meet Randall Echavarria

Reali Agent

Randall caught the real estate bug 15 years ago and never looked back. No two transactions or clients are ever the same, one of his favorite things about being an agent is meeting new people and creating friendships along the way.

Hear what the SF Peninsula thinks of Reali

Find out why buyers and sellers on the SF Peninsula can’t stop talking about Reali.

John went above and beyond and did a fantastic job. He sold the house for a pretty high price and then negotiated a very decent price on the condo. We would definitely seek him out to help us when it comes time to buy or sell real estate again.”

Without a doubt, Traci Loftis is one of the best real estate agents in the Bay Area! She is a true professional, with great attention to detail. She was fast and responsive during the negotiation and escrow period, alleviating any anxiety you may have during the sale. With her, we were able to sell our home in less than two weeks, and well above our asking price.”

I am a first-time homebuyer, and Daniel was very patient, knowledgeable, and explained to me every step of the process. Daniel moves quickly, and is very responsive. I am happy that I contacted Daniel and the Reali team to purchase my home since Daniel proved to me that he knows the market, and his advice helped me get the home that I wanted at the right price.”

It was a pleasure working with Michelle. She worked with us very patiently and showed us many houses in distant areas. She has good knowledge of the Bay Area. Her suggestions and recommendations helped us to take a decision. She has a solution for every problem. We would highly recommend her for any real estate related needs.”
