“We highly recommend working with Laila Salma and Rhanda Salma. These two are rare examples of real estate professionals who truly understand the art of facilitating their clients’ agendas. We are based in the South Bay and were not familiar with the nuances of every SF neighborhood, nor every product type available. However, we were in excellent hands with these two. They expertly identified the pros/cons of each listing we saw, and each neighborhood we toured, confidently building our trust along the way. Once we got into contract, Laila and Rhanda made sure that every detail was taken care of and that our interests were fully represented. Whether it’s knowing current market rents for a neighborhood, the property details of the sale around the corner, or being able to negotiate a temporary lease on a furnished rental in between closing on our condo (which they did), Laila and Rhanda are full service real estate professionals.” ~Bella and Roman Y.
“I have worked with Laila & Rhanda for several years now and have gotten to know them better with each transaction. They are wonderful to work with whether I’m selling or buying an apartment building, wanting to know current market rents or need them to run a financial analysis on a building. I am continually impressed with their work and professionalism. Rhanda & Laila know the market and have vast experience with San Francisco real estate sales, leasing and marketing and property ownership. I trust them to help me with my real estate needs. I enjoy working with them and highly recommend them.”
“I was referred to Rhanda and Laila through a friend, and I feel very fortunate to have found them! My search for the perfect San Francisco condo lasted over a year and had many ups and downs. Rhanda and Laila were extremely patient, and put me at ease by never pressuring me to make a decision. They provided professional advice on my searches, conducted market research, recommended reliable vendors and were extremely easy to reach with questions. Even after my purchase, I still reach out to Rhanda and Laila for advice/recommendations on all things real estate. I highly recommend them!” ~Sara H.
“Rhanda worked with me for over two years to find the perfect house. She was a great partner in every step of the process. This was my first home purchase and I had a million questions about every detail. Rhanda stayed focused and attentive though the entirety of my search and I closed on a lovely house in Noe Valley in February. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and have done so to numerous friends and colleagues.” ~Daniel M.
“My investment partner and I hired Rhanda as my trusted Real Estate Broker for a purchase on an investment property. Even though I already knew her as a dear friend, she provided me top notch service and remained professional from start to finish. Rhanda kept punctual to our time frame, educated me at every step of the way and ultimately helped me buy a very profitable investment property. Even today, three years later, I call Rhanda to ask her real estate related questions and she calls me right back with a detailed knowledge of the subject, thanks to her years of experience with her family business, Salma & Company. I would most certainly recommend hiring Rhanda in any Real Estate transaction in the San Francisco area. Hands down, Rhanda is one of the best Real Estate Brokers I know.”
“It was a pleasure working directly with Rhanda Salma. She was extremely organized, knowledgeable and thorough in the process of finding a home for my client. She has vast experience and is extremely resourceful in the real estate industry. I highly recommend her as a Real Estate Broker.”
“I would like to say that I’m a reasonable person and that I have unlimited funds to spend on real estate. But I would be lying. When it comes to housing, I have unreasonable expectations and I’ve never met a penny I didn’t pinch. Nonetheless, Rhanda was able to find me a great property and negotiate a great deal. Along the way, she provided expert insight into the local housing market. Unlike other agents I have used in the past, Rhanda actually advocated for my position and she was always available to discuss issues or view potential properties. Rhanda has my full trust and I would recommend her to anyone testing the waters in the San Francisco market.”
“Rhanda helped me successfully buy a 2 unit property in Hayes Valley in 2007. She was recommended to me and as soon as we started working together, I knew I was in excellent hands. Not only is Rhanda an experienced and savvy broker, her loyalty to you and your best interests always shines through her actions. After I closed escrow, she said she would be here for me to help ensure I made the right choices with my property. Four years later, she is still my trusted advisor and I would recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell property in San Francisco.”
“We are long-time SF residents and have been house-hunting on and off for the past several years. After working with a couple of other agents and brokers, we came up empty time and again and were beginning to think that we’d never find the perfect house for us. We owe so much to Rhanda – she literally turned our dream into a reality. Rhanda listened to what we wanted and continually processed our feedback to help refine our search and narrow in on the perfect home. We are experienced MLS searchers, but she found us homes that we couldn’t find on your own and introduced us to neighborhoods that we knew little about. Most importantly, she will not let you make poor decisions and supports you 100% of the way from open house through to contract. She even sent us a reminder when our first property taxes were due! Rhanda literally leaves no stone unturned and it was such an incredible relief to have her working with us because we always had someone looking out for our best interests. Now Rhanda will always be a part of our family because we will never forget her kindness and what she helped us achieve.”

“As a first time home-shopper in San Francisco, I felt a bit overwhelmed by the process that lay ahead. Rhanda and Laila immediately put me at ease by explaining their goals: first, to teach me about the local market and the process of home buying in general; second, to help me refine my ideas of exactly what type of place I was looking for; and finally, to find the perfect place, no matter how long it took. To say they exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. Not only did they help me find a place I love, for a great price, but they also made the process really fun! Laila and Rhanda are clearly passionate about what they do. And they do their difficult job with patience and professionalism. They have my unreserved recommendation and I would refer them to any family member or friend.”
