Reviews and Testimonials:                      

Jeff and Celia!!!  Thank you so MUCH! We did it!! I can’t believe it’s finally done! Wohoooo! Stop the press!

This was definitely not an easy one by any means and none of this would have been possible without your tireless efforts, your ingenuity, your help and your boundless creativity for troubleshooting and problem solving.  I’ve never met anyone quite like you two in this world and I am very thankful that we were lucky enough to meet you and to work with you. Words cannot really express our gratitude and the way that I feel right now.

Thank you again and again and again and chat soon.

Hope your day is great!

Most sincerely,

Malika Weeden, Film Director NY, NY



I would like to thank Jeff and his wife Celia for what they have done for me in the process of selling my deceased uncle's house in Walnut Creek. They both treated me like family as I felt lost in that situation. Jeff was beyond a realtor, he helped and advised me in the best way possible in a very difficult time, I really appreciate it. I hope to get to work with them under better circumstances.

All my best, Sahar Kiani


To Anyone Looking for a Great Realtor!

Jeff Auen is the best in the business! He went above and beyond our greatest expectations and we are pretty demanding clients!

He definitely takes real estate “beyond the norm” by offering an exceptional full service approach to his clients. His problem solving and trouble shooting skills in our particular transaction greatly relieved us of stress and time constraints in the selling our home. 

His professional skills in marketing, staging, and advertising are unique in the business. He always took the initiative when necessary to offer solutions relating to presentation and marketing our home.

 For example, our home sat on the market for 3 months before we found Jeff. Jeff re-marketed and promoted the home and found a buyer within 4 weeks in a slow and changing market early this year.

  He was able to handle virtually every aspect of the sale from hiring an organizing and packing service to using his home service craftsman to correct some termite repairs and a deck. All this was done professionally with our approval but non-involvement. His prompt and reliable management of the sale even impressed the buyers who chose to work with him rather than another agent! His negotiation and facilitation experience solved critical issues when issues came up in our deal.

 In addition to his business and professional savvy, Jeff’s temperament and style make him quite simply a great person to know and work with.

I would be honored to recommend Jeff to anyone who would like to be completely satisfied in their real estate experience.
