Testimonials for Myrick Tantiado
Myrick is phenomenal and deserves more than 5 stars. We recently bought a home in the East Bay and had a very tight timeline with a newborn baby. Myrick went above and beyond at every single step of the process and helped us get our house in one of the most competitive markets in years for the Bay Area (this was the April - June timeframe). We ended up getting an amazing place for asking price and then negotiating a credit higher than we expected.
Myrick is a superstar and I would recommend him to anyone and use him again in a heartbeat. He is one of the most diligent people I have ever worked with (real estate agent or otherwise): When he says he will call, he calls on the second, follows up all inquiries and was completely dependable. Because of our aggressive schedule this was critical! He also was a great listener to our needs but kept us focused and fought for our best interest for pricing and long term strategy. I felt like his most important client at all times and that his focus was completely on us even though I know he had other projects going.
Best of all, he's just the nicest guy--I know that isn't important for everyone but when making one of the biggest investments and decisions of your life, I do think it's nice to respect and like the person you are working with.
You will not find a more informed, meticulous, and assertive real estate agent than Myrick Tantiado. I had been looking for real estate in SF for over 7 years and I have had a lot of agents, but Myrick was, by far, the best. He made my home buying experience smooth as silk and was very patient, informative and experienced throughout the entire process. I literally could not have done it without him, and would recommend him unconditionally to anyone looking for solid representation in the Bay Area.
Myrick is sensational!
When my wife and I were relocating back to the Bay Area, I gave Myrick a call on a whim, since I met him during a tennis league some time ago. We had a tall task ahead of us. We were moving across the country with our two sons (5 mo. and 2 yrs. old), we didn't have a long-term rental, and we wanted to buy our first house in a hot, hot seller's market. We needed a miracle, and we got one--Myrick. In a market where it took many people over half a year to buy a house, he helped us get our home in less than two months.
From the very beginning, Myrick was very patient and attentive. He explained everything that we needed to know and anticipated questions that we didn't think we had. He was very pro-active, calling the seller's agents to scope out the field, setting up meetings with lenders, and getting everything perfectly lined up so we could move quickly. He set up viewings on the next day in many cases, so we could beat the crowds. Additionally, he worked hard to make our offer as competitive as it could possibly be by optimizing the smallest details, crossing the t's and dotting the i's.
What is most impressive about working with Myrick is his attention to detail and execution. With two young kids, just having moved, and both my wife and I working full-time, we could not even begin to keep all the parts straight. When our bid was accepted (our second try), there were so many things to do and so much to keep in order. Myrick expertly managed the whole process. From getting inspectors, to interfacing with our loan officer and escrow agent, to negotiating with the seller's agent. In fact, Myrick somehow convinced the buyer to make almost $4k in improvements before we closed (in a red-hot sellers market)!
If you still don't believe me that he's amazing, consider that my wife's co-worker was looking for a house for almost a year without success, just a lot of frustration. My wife referred her to Myrick, and about a month later she was in contract and singing his praises. Seriously, the guy is awesome!
My husband and I met Myrick at an open house in Bernal Heights. Even though the property was out of our price range and we were months from being ready to buy, Myrick treated us like we were his most important potential clients and really got to know us. He soon helped us begin our home search and did an incredible job of showing us the right properties to learn what we were looking for.
Through the ups and downs of the house hunt Myrick was always positive and focused on making sure we were happy long term. He provided comprehensive reports as well as comparables and tons of other useful information on every property. He never pushed us into anything, yet he was very responsive wherever we showed interest in a property.
In the end we found exactly what we wanted. Myrick has great connections with the best professionals in the industry and he shares them with his clients like you would take care of family. Myrick also worked tirelessly during the loan approval process to make sure we closed in a very short amount of time. Without his help, there's no way we would have closed on time.
We are so lucky to have a realtor that was willing to work so hard to make us happy. Myrick is an outstanding realtor and we would recommend him to anyone.
My experience working with Myrick began as a casual conversation about how I was perhaps looking to purchase a property with some very specific characteristics. Myrick suggested that I should actually focus more on attributes different from those that I had first mentioned to him (challenging my reasoning and explaining why the whole time) and then suggested a few properties for me to view. Very low pressure which I liked very much.
I did ultimately take a look at the properties and ultimately decided to put in an offer on one. Myrick helped me weigh the pros and cons of the various properties before making "the" offer. Moreover, the property hadn't even been listed on the MLS, so if Myrick hadn't steered me there, I would never even have known about its existence.
Myrick kept in close contact with me throughout the buying process and there was never any doubt about where we were as we moved towards closing. He pushed me when appropriate, but allowed me to take my time and feel comfortable with the whole process. Managing the buying process is something where Myrick excels and is not afraid to deal with lenders, inspectors, or whomever (regardless of whether or not it is in his "job" description to deal with those individuals) to make sure that things go according to schedule with no surprises.
I recently worked with Myrick on a new property purchase, and my experience was just as positive as the first time around (and this time he steered me into another super area of SF that I hardly knew existed!). He really earned his keep having to deal with lenders, builders, and inspectors to make sure that we kept on schedule to close, which, miraculously, we did.
If this sounds like the kind of personalized attention that you'd like to receive from your broker, then you should get in contact with Myrick right away -- even if, like me, you only have a slight idea of where you might want to head with a property purchase.

it's been two years since the purchase of our home (with the assistance of myrick). things have been great for us, post-purchase! myrick is not the "you've bought the house now, you're on your own" type of realtor. a couple of questions have come up post-purchase (over the past couple years), and myrick has done his best to answer whatever questions have come up, or direct us to resources when he couldn't personally address our concerns.
we're also in the market to potentially remodel our kitchen. having extensive experience working with contractors on various projects, myrick has been extremely helpful in pointing us to some local contractors that can offer fair prices & excellent work, which will make our eventual go / no-go decision much easier to make.
lastly, something i should have mentioned earlier, but myrick organized the most ridiculous housewarming party for us, at our place, shortly after we bought the place. one of the top chef contestants (not sure if i'm allowed to name her here) was our personal chef for the occasion, along with a couple of her friends. my wife and i certainly aren't "big ballers" or anything like that, and our house is quite modestly sized, but that didn't prevent myrick from organizing such a killer party for us! not saying that he'll be able to re-create such a party for all his clients, but it was certainly appreciated by us & we'll forever remember the effort he put into making our first homebuyer experience enjoyable and as stress-free as possible.
If it weren't for Myrick's tenacity, smarts and charm I wouldn't have my new home in the Mission. Finding the property that met my wish list was just the start. Convincing the sellers that my offer was the best option they had - while not even being the highest price offered - Myrick got us into contract. Through the close process, Myrick handled the sellers, their agent, the inspections, and all the details that make a difficult sale come off easy for me.
Honest, intelligent, connected. These are the reasons Myrick Tantiado is my agent. Having bought and sold over a dozen properties in the last 10 years, I demand a lot from my agent and Myrick has never let me down. He has my best interests at heart and he anticipates 'what's next' so it's always a smooth experience. He recently helped me purchase a two-unit, tenant-occupied building for a really good deal and navigate through the proper steps in acquiring this property. Myrick not only put me in touch with one of the best real estate attorneys in town but accompanied me to all the appointments to make sure I was well taken care of. He has continued to provide valuable resources and advice well after I had purchased this property, going above and beyond your typical agent. I highly recommend Myrick to anyone.
Myrick helped and guided me in the purchase of my first home in San Francisco. He was patient and professional throughout the entire process. Myrick took charge when needed and made going through escrow a breeze. It was a pleasure working with him and I look forward to his help and guidance on future real estate transactions.
Myrick Tantiado is a wonderful real estate agent. He was always on top of everything and made me feel like I was his first priority during the whole process of purchasing my first home. I will definitely be recommending Myrick to all my friends.
