"One word: SEAMLESS! That is our experience with our amazing Realtor, Cielo Fuentes, co-partner/owner of Keenan Howard Realty Inc. Buying a home in the time of Covid-19 posed great challenges, but WE (married life now) saw this as an opportunity to buy since we have lesscompetition. Well.... maybe!Haha.... I also think there is never abad time to buy real estate, especially if your numbers are right. So off we went with Cielo and went house hunting. We saw houses after houses, decked out with full blown gears provided by Cielo (mask, gloves, the trusted hand-sanitizer,shoe-booties and signed all Covid waivers). We saw some really amazing homes, but in the end, we decided in Oakland,California. Lastly, we are so fortunate to work with Cielo who is caring, passionate, and dedicated. She was with us from start to finish throughout our buying journey. We are so blessed and so grateful. If you are looking to buy or sell your home, I highly recommended Cielo Fuentes. With her 20years experience and dedication to help her clients in the real estateindustry, I know she will deliver for you as she did for us. Cheers!"
"I met Cielo a few years back when she was my notary on myrefinance . We struck a conversation and she said something that resonated withme . I told myself that if ever I sold my property she will be my realtor . Andshe did not disappoint . The property sold few days in the market and shehelped me with making sure I am at ease . She even loaned me her plants . Iwould highly recommend her"
"Cielo is a really sweet person and she helped me and my family but a house. She will fight to get your property she is really nice and I will recommend her to anyone because she will take the time to look and find the right house for you . My family is really happy with cielo and we will like to work with her again another time."
“Cielo was able to salvage a situation that went very bad with my previous agent, which ended up in a cancelled contract. Not only was she able to get us our new home in a timely manner, she was a soothing balm when I was frantic about losing my initial contract with the previous agent. I must say that Cielo exuded proficient project management skills that helped with running the process smoothly.”

"First of all I think God sent you to me. The first time we talked on the cellphone, we hit it good from the start. Then for some reason you asked me out of the blue if I used to lived in BFHome Paranaque Philippines?! I said Yes! It turned out you married the brother of my good friend! I verified it with your sister in law who I often chat on fb. At that point I knew I could trust you! You were always there for us, even at midnight asking questions! Thank you for your recommendations & suggestions! Because of you, we found our dr am house & we found a family as well! God Bless you! I still got some of your cards & I will giving them to friends who are looking for a home."

"Cielo is definitely the best in class in the real estate field. From the very beginning when I was searching for an agent to sell my property, I was very impressed with her knowledge and experience. I decided very quickly to have her represent me. Not only did she provide extremely useful insight on how to convert my abandoned rental to an attractive and marketable home, she also helped me manage the remodeling aspect of the home by sourcing a reputable contractor, inspecting the work, to even finding flooring and lighting material that would complement the style of the home. I personally felt that she was as invested in the property as I was. Her constant communication and feedback on the process made me feel very comfortable and I trusted her recommendations because I knew she had my best interest. She helped me transformed my house into a beautiful showcase. I also loved all the marketing tools she provided, like the drone video, dollhouse virtual tour, staging, advertising and results of the open houses. With her help, I was able to sell the property in a very short time and with the sold price that I was very satisfied with. In summary, Cielo is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and would highly recommend her to anyone with real estate needs."

"You are professional and easy to work with, did not feel the pressure to make a rush decision. You're prompt and honest about communicating transaction while in progress. Appreciated the moving boxes you provided that was delivered to our home, we did not expect it. The extra services you provided that was not included in our contract - shared cost for the movers & taking care of the last batch of garbage that needed to be hauled. We're grateful and blessed to have worked with you."
"I had such a great experience with Cielo. I tend to read everything and ask a lot of questions. She was patient with me, explained everything in a way that I could understand and walked with me through the whole process. I felt like she really cared about where I made my permanent home. That means a lot to me."

She is very good."

"Its been great that we finally found our home, sweet home, thanks to the help of our realtor Cielo Fuentes, she is great she help us every step of the way. she really work hard to get our dream home. thank you Cielo Fuentes."
"We were lucky enough to have Cielo recommended to us by our bank. Cielo listed and sold our Benicia home that we had owned since it was built in 1999. It was a difficult time to sell a home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenging market, Cielo was able to list and sell our house within a few weeks of listing the property while delivering a value which exceeded our expectations. Cielo was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and her advice proved to be spot on the whole way through. We typically have a high bar when it comes to expectations and Cielo over-achieved in every aspect of the transaction. Her professionalism, work ethic, marketing products, and negotiation skills were all top notch and Cielo's positive attitude and happy personality kept us calm throughout the stressful process. I would recommend Cielo without reservation and hope she is available should we ever buy or sell a house again. Thanks, Cielo!"
"Cielo helped us buy our first home and did a fabulous job. As a first-time buyers we knew very little about the home buying process. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.

Thanks Cielo for a job well done!"

"We had a great experience working with Cielo! She made the home buying process as easy as possible for my wife and I.

We strongly recommend working with her :)"

She was knowledgeable, helpful and supportive of our buying experience, as well as patience with my many questions and desire to negotiate with the seller. She provided basic knowledge and information about buying a house which gave us basic knowledge of the process. She was available at odd times and holidays. We enjoyed working w/ her and the team!"
Beatriz & Michael B.
"Throughout our lives my husband and I have used many real estate agents to buy ad sell our many homes. None have achieved the level of service we received from Cielo. She did a wonderful job of managing expectations, navigating us past insurmountable problems that we thought might lower our home’s value, and helping us to find vendors who could repair and bring the property back to life. After all the projects to bring the house back to life our home, which was left in such disrepair by previous tenants in it’s last few years, became a jewel again and that was Cielo’s doing. Her direction, attention to detail, and constant communication to keep us on schedule helped us to sell the house within days of it hitting the market. Cielo held our hands through what could have been a sorrowful, disheartening process and led us through unscathed. We are sad to let the home go, but it made us happy to feel like we were handing a beautiful gift to the newhomers. Thank you so much, Cielo! We couldn’t have done it without you."
"Cielo Fuentes is an extraordinary Real Estate Agent with an excellent service on our just concluded house sale. Cielo, I can’t say enough appreciation for ur extraordinary service. I’ll surely refer u to my friends for all their real estate business needs. Thank u from all of my family."

"Selling and buying a house at the same time was definitely not an easy task but with Cielo’s strategy and perseverance we were able to accomplished both seamlessly. Thank you for making all things possible."
Erwin and Sherrylin D.
"This is the second time that we worked with Cielo but this time we have to sell and buy, as we all know that selling is easy but buying is a different story and it's tough, lots of competition. Cielo's, motivation, patience and perseverance paid off and we were able to buy the house that we wanted, everything went smoothly. Our experiences with Cielo is second to none. If there's a third time?? we will not hesitate to call Cielo."
"Easy to talk to, straight shooter and incredibly patient for the entire process. Persevering even during this seller’s market we are in, Cielo kept giving us advice on what steps to take to get us in the right direction and eventually landing us our home. If you are in doubt as to who you want on your side during the home buying process, look no further!"
"Cielo did a great job being our Realtor by going above and beyond in terms of coordination and communication! She was on top of the process all throughout with her passion and prayers to help and assist her clients. Now we have already moved into our new home because of her perseverance and attention to detail. Highly recommended!"
"5 stars indeed. Very helpful with paperwork."
"I will definitely refer her to other people. Thank you for the help, Cielo."

"If I could describe the experience I had partnering up with Cielo in one word, I would say she is "passionate.” She not only went above and beyond helping me and my family get the type of house we wanted as first-time homebuyers. But she also educated us along the way, she even explained the processes that we were clueless about. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, nobody is as determined and passionate as she is when it comes to homes!"
"Cielo was awesome! We are so thankful that we got to work with her buying our first dream home. She was honest and precise as she walked us through the process step by step. We got our house before the estimated close date and we couldn’t be any happier! I highly recommend her!"
"She'll give you her time, especially a convenient time that works for you."
"Cielo delivered 5-Star service. She made sure we were comfortable with our house-hunting process. She was diligent in getting things done like clockwork. I highly regard her service. Top notch!"
