Bruce was my realtor in buying and selling my house where I lived in for more than 18 years. Bruce took care of all the aspects to get the house ready for sale with his good professional working relationship with home inspectors, and escrow companies that made the whole process went smoothly. Bruce was very patient explaining all the details of the house sales process. I highly recommended using Bruce Scheer for either buying or selling your home. Bruce is an excellent expert, very honest and patient realtor. I can’t say more about Bruce, he his number ONE realtor!

My wife and I were nascent buyers, but Bruce took care of us. He walked us through the process and worked very quickly — we went to an open house on Saturday, met Bruce on Wednesday and put in an offer on Thursday. Thanks to Bruce's connections, we got the opportunity to increase our bid and win over the multiple bidders. I've already recommended him to coworkers, and I definitely will look to him when we're looking to sell.

Bruce helped my parents buy their home 16 years ago, and now he's helped me. He was absolutely great, despite working with funds that were barely entry-level (for the Peninsula). He knows everyone you'd want a realtor to know--other realtors, contractors, mortgage brokers, etc.

Bruce has been my realtor for over 20 years. He gives you the correct answer instead of the answer you want. He always as a good read on the how the market is flowing up or down. He has a good working relationship with termite companies, home inspectors and escrow companies that make the whole process quick and easy. I can't recommend him higher. Less
We had the very sad experience of recently selling my mom's home after her unexpected passing. We interviewed several very knowledgeable and impressive agents, and felt that Bruce would most meet our needs, as he was the most experienced in selling in our area. Bruce shepherded us so easily through the selling process, and we are all appreciative of his professionalism and expertise in getting the house to market and sold, in addition to his expediency, and sensitivity to our both our grief, and our need to get the estate closed. Now we can move forward with no regrets or sadness. My family would highly recommend Bruce as agent.

Bruce Scheer is a phenomenal realtor. He was recommended to me by a friend and I could not have been more impressed. I was in the process of looking for my first home and Bruce was there with me every step of the way. Not only did he answer my endless questions, but he was also an amazing advocate for me. When there were issues with my lender, he stepped in to make sure that all steps were being taken to ensure the close of escrow. He did more behind the scenes than I can even imagine. The best part about working with Bruce is that he always made me feel like I was his only client, even though I know this was not the case. I have already recommended Bruce to others I know are looking to buy in the near future, and I will continue to recommend him. Thanks to Bruce, I found a home that I absolutely love. Less

I'm a real estate investor and have had participated in many deals. Few times in my long life have I had a deal go down as flawlessly as the one I just closed with Bruce. And that's nearly miraculous, because in the middle of it I had to leave the state to fly home and turn over everything to Bruce to handle. Not once did I worry that the details would be overlooked or handled improperly. He took care of everything and notified me regularly of the status of every little thing. He has a cadre of trusted, experienced contractors, which I called upon to refurbish the older home I was selling. After being away from California for decades I had to sell my late father's house. The whole house needed work, so it was such a relief to learn that Bruce has worked with some of the same contractors for 25 years. I tend to be a micromanager, but really, it was easy to turn things over to Bruce, especially when I had to leave the state in the middle of the deal, because he is so competent and trustworthy. As the trustee for my father's estate I had a zillion details to handle aside from the house. The day I turned over the house to Bruce to refurbish, spruce up, market, and sell was one of the best days throughout my ordeal of closing up my late father’s affairs. Bruce gave me many tips on the best places in the house to spend my refurbishing dollars to earn the biggest profit and avoid waste. I’m so glad I met Bruce. He is an expert on the Santa Clara neighborhood in which I grew up. Without his input I am certain that my childhood home would have sold for less. Thank you Bruce!

Bruce was the most professional real estate agent with whom I have ever worked. He not only handled the sale of my home in an extremely courteous, professional, and efficient manner but assisted me and another agent with the coordination of some activities related to closing escrow on my new home in southern California. My home sold within a few days of listing, escrow closed in 5 weeks, and Bruce negotiated some special considerations making both me, the seller, and the buyer very appreciative of his coordination efforts. Thank you Bruce, it has been a pleasure having you on my side during the sale of my current home and relocating out of the area.

If you are looking for a realtor, I highly recommend Bruce Scheer. He was awesome to work with. What I liked about Bruce was that he was very easy to work with, not pushy, and very patient (it took us a long time to find the house we wanted in this crazy Norcal Real Estate market). Additionally, he is very knowledgeable about the local market and very responsive. No words can really express how much we enjoyed working with him. He was there with us all thru the process of finding, purchasing and financing our new home. I just really recommend him for anyone looking to purchase a new home.Less

I rarely comment on anything either good or bad but I can not let this experience go without giving Bruce credit he so deserves. I HIGHLY recommend using Bruce Scheer for either buying or selling you're home. Bruce is honest, dependable, exceeds all ethics. Bruce is a very rare find and if he could clone himself, we would have a better world. I have had many, many dealings with real estate and have never come across anyone like Bruce. I will never be able to say enough about him but he will make all events smooth and stress free for you. He knows what he is doing, he does it well and he is the very best. It was an honor to have met him and use his expertise. I only wish I could use him for all my business interest.

Bruce knows exactly how to stage, price, market and sell a house! One phone call from us and he never missed a beat. Bruce's hands-on approach is the key, we were never "handed off" to an associate. We cannot say enough about Bruce's knowledge of the market and his professional approach to selling our home! If you want to be treated with respect and professionalism and you want top dollar, hire Bruce Scheer to represent you! Less
I cannot recommend Bruce more. We worked with Bruce on the sale of our house late last year and he provided excellent advice throughout the process. With his guidance, we made subtle (minor) improvements to our home to maximize the sales price.
He also helped us find our new home and was our advocate throughout that process. With a limited budget and a list of specific wants, we struggled somewhat to find the right home. When we did find a viable option, Bruce helped us identify the right offer within our parameters.
Once an offer was accepted, Bruce was attentive every step of the way to ensure we were well taken care of during a stressful time.
On a personal level, Bruce is that rare person who can balance strength with kindness. He was equally a pleasure to work with during the exciting times as well the more stressful times.

Before I met Bruce I was trying to purchase my first home with my husband without an agent. The process was all consuming. We spent weekends traveling from open house to open house and weekdays putting bids in order with no success. Bruce is an expert on the house buying process. He maximized our time, gave us useful local information and is very responsive.
Bruce had a lot of helpful advice. This advice helped my husband and I be considered as serious buyers for our current place. He is truly an expert on the house purchasing process.
Bruce helped us maximize our time. On weekends he tailored our list down to the ones with the most potential. He was able to do this because of his local knowledge. As we viewed each house he also noted any points of negotiation for us. Again this helped us land our current place.
Bruce is very responsive. Throughout the process Bruce has always kept in contact via phone and email to make sure things are going okay.
As a first time buyer in a very competitive market I am glad that my husband and I found Bruce.
From Natasha and Nathan via Reach 150 April 2014
We met Bruce by chance, and are very fortunate we did.
There are several things that we really valued about our relationship. First, his expertise and experience in the industry. We've worked with other agents on previous home purchases and I can honestly say, none of them even came close to Bruce.
Second, his commitment to his customers – Bruce was always there when we had questions or concerns – on the phone, by text, by email, you name it. We felt like we were his only customer (I’m sure far from reality), and really appreciated his availability.
Third, Bruce was very consultative in his approach and also sensitive to our needs. There were times when we needed him to be more hands-on, which he was. And there were times when we needed our time/space to make a decision and he respectfully gave us that as well.
Four, I loved his honesty! During the three month home search, there were houses that we were interested in and each time, Bruce provided his candid opinion on the home, be it good or bad. Looking back at some of the homes we considered, he was absolutely right, and we very likely would have regretted buying something that at the time seemed like a good decision.
Lastly, and most specifically – he played an integral (if not THE integral) role in helping us get our dream house. We took his suggestions and advice, and ended up beating out the other offers and getting our dream house. We moved two weeks ago!
I think the biggest and truest compliment that I can give someone is whether I would work with them again – and with Bruce, the answer is in a heartbeat.
I would not only like to thank you profusely for helping me with the difficulties, chaos, and traumas that go along with selling a house; but also for becoming a good friend. I truly feel that if my mother, and other family or friends need honest advice that you would be there to help us all.
I appreciated your calm patience during this ordeal with my frequent near-hysteria state! Your expertise and experience made everything seem doable. I felt safe and well taken care of and that you had my best interests at heart.
In addition, I couldn't be happier with your wise marketing strategy which resulted in 15 offers and a final sale price of $555,000, which was much higher than I expected. The other realtor I interviewed suggested that I move everything out of and vacate my home before showing it to buyers and that it would sell for about $450,000. My heart was broken. This had been my home for 20 years; I raised my children in this quiet and wonderful neighborhood. Now I felt rushed and panicky.
On a whim, I called you when I received your brochure. In your calm and gifted manner, you explained my options and told me to slow down and relax instead of packing up and moving out. Things worked out beautifully and I owe it all to you. I strongly recommend your services.
Thanks again for all you did to help me get settled again. I appreciated all your efforts.
This is a brief note to express my immense appreciation for your expertise, experience, patience and much needed sense of humor you provided during the sale of my existing home all the way through the purchase of my current home. You always remained professional despite all the obstacles and challenges we faced as we worked our way through my tight 3-month timeline of selling and buying. It was also a very emotional time for me and you were able to offer me the patience I needed to think things through and make good decisions along the way. In addition, I was very impressed with your level of knowledge regarding home construction, inspections, real estate law, negotiation and strategies in closing a deal quickly and honestly.
Thank you Bruce Scheer- you are an excellent real estate agent.
8/22/12 via Linked In.Veronica Wexler has recommended your work as Realtor at Intero
Dear Bruce, I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "I've used Bruce for every real estate transaction; so far, he's helped us buy and sell 3 homes, in part because he is extremely knowledgeable about the local market, but also because he will take the time to investigate areas with which he is unfamiliar. We would never have used him so often if he wasn't the best realtor we've met. And he's friendly, honest and just plain kind. You'd have to go a long way before you found someone like Bruce!" Service Category: Real Estate Agent Year first hired: 1990 (hired more than once) Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity
…On behalf of myself, my siblings and my parents, thanks so much to you and Kim for your hard work and wise counsel as we sold the old family home. You made the process so easy for us, and we could not be happier with the outcome. The combination of timely and important improvements to the house and getting it on the market at the right time really paid off. If there is ever a time when I can provide a recommendation for you to another client, please don't hesitate to ask.
Charlie and I just want to thank you for all your help in selling our house. The entire process was handled very professionally, as well as, personally; and we very much appreciate the ease and speed it took to complete the sale.
Much thanks to you and Kim for your time and effort.
I hope all is going well for you. Lisa and I do receive your newsletter and think it is great! It's a nice way to keep in touch with your clients and keep your name fresh on their minds … Just looking back with the multiple realtors that we have encountered and utilized, you have been the best by far! It seems that you have better leveraged technology and marketing than most out there …
Lisa and I wanted to write a quick note to say ‘Thank You’ for representing us during the sale of our condo in California. We appreciated the extra efforts you and your assistant Kim took, especially since we were living in Arizona. We know you went the extra mile to coordinate with the buyer’s agent, escrow officer, and others to ensure our property closed. Thank you.
I am writing to recount my recent positive experience as a buyer having worked with Bruce Scheer as the selling agent.
My wife and I were purchasing a property in which a large number of time-critical issues required resolution. Unfortunately, our “buyer’s” agent was not available during this time nor did he provide the representation we required. Bruce was instrumental in successfully concluding the transaction despite the many impediments and poor representation from our agent. Bruce made us aware of issues that were not being handled, he represented the concerns and needs of his client, and made extra efforts to resolve issues. This resulted in a successful outcome for all. All the wile he was very professional, very effective in his communication, very knowledgeable, and demonstrated attention to detail.
From this experience I highly recommend Bruce and look forward to the future possibility of doing business with him. We offer our thanks to him for helping us purchase a house, the transaction for which would not have been successful without his efforts.
Rekha and I would like to thank you and Kim for closing the escrow on time. We enjoyed very much working with both of you. We appreciate your professionalism, understanding and cooperation all these weeks.
This is the first time we sold a house. It has been a learning experience for us. I learned a lot in the process of preparing this house for sale. The knowledge I acquired in the last few months, I hope, will become very useful in maintaining and upgrading my current home.
Bruce, we want you to know you have exceeded our expectations. Let us stay in touch.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us sell our home, for holding our hands through the process, for helping us stage the place to show, for making the negotiations so easy and for the escrow summary.
When your were the listing agent on the home we bought – we were pleased with your professionalism and helpfulness. When we turned around and sold the house six years later - you were our first choice to list the home again.
Bruce, you truly are easy to work with and so professional and helpful. What could have turned out to be a disaster - getting the home ready to show - cleaning up my home office - getting our junk out of the house - etc, etc, etc. - instead turned it into a model home. Your advice could be measured by the great price you negotiated for the house. Please don't show anyone our "before" pictures, but you can brag about the "after" results.
Then, just the other night, as we were pulling our hair out doing taxes, what do we find...a note from you summing up all the boring escrow information that I never paid any attention to...our tax man is so happy...so are we!
We can't refer you to enough friends and family, you're the best!
Thank you again,
Jeff and Dawn Danaher Formerly of Santa Clara March 2007
Both Jim and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you for all your efforts in selling our Santa Clara home. As you are no doubt aware, it’s a very stressful period and we do appreciate all you did for us. Please extend out thanks to your assistant, Kim, also for her helpful support when I was feeling the pressure.
I am sure that you will assist many families through this process in the future and I know that they are in good hands.
I would like to thank you very much for your aid in the sale of my town home – especially since there was so much that had to be performed by you and your staff.
The beauty was in the professional execution of virtually everything. Your ability to size up how the house had to look for a successful sale was invaluable. Invaluable too, was the ability of you and your staff to act as the intermediary with the contractors to handle the linoleum, carpet, painting and sink replacement along with tiling the kitchen countertops. I truly felt as though all was being taken care of – from getting quotes to final execution and inspection.
The payoff came at the end – with your home sale price recommendation. Your recommended listing price was over what I had ever expected to get – and then to find 16 offers – most of which were even substantially over asking – what a thrill! Your aid in selection of the offer and the effortless close exceeded my expectations.
Thanks again for all the hard work. Working with you was truly my pleasure.
Again, you continue to pave the way as a most excellent real estate agent. I only wish my agent here in Michigan had been as on the ball. Thanks so much or sending the copy, it's going to come in handy. If you ever need to use us for a reference, we're there for you.
It's been a while but I haven't forgottenwhat a splendid job you did handling my buy-sell. I must say that I couldn't be happier. This place looks like a palace. I am totally in love with it. Four or five years down the road when I'm ready to relocate, you can count on me to call you.
I was supposed to have this ready for you at Thanksgiving, but, well…
We love our house and are constantly grateful that we have it. Thank you so much for all you gave, the effort and for making the process so accessible for us. With your help, the impossible became our reality. I know of no one else who has had such a positive “realtor experience” as we have. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
As you know, we recently returned from our vacation cruise. Randy, Rita and I want to thank you for your fine work and cooperation in selling our condo so quickly.
We feel your excellent advice, help and professionalism aided the speedy sale and closure. Also we appreciated your suggestions regarding the cleanup and were pleased with the painter, handyman and cleaning person. They all came through promptly and their fine work made the condo so appealing. Certainly we will be very happy to recommend you to any of our friends who may need an outstanding sales agent.
Thank you again for your proficiency and your helpfulness. We enjoyed working with you.
Sincerely, Rita, Warren and Randy Vogel August 11, 2003
