Rose S. Preciado is well-regarded for her innovative business strategies and creative marketing approaches that have garnered her much praise and attention amongst her colleagues. She balances this fervent business acumen with an unusually dedicated and sincere passion towards the success of her clients. Her team says: “The best part of our job is to see our clients happy and receive their sincere appreciation. It is wonderful to be able to help out a family to have a place they can call home. We do our best to help families kindle the light of inspiration, one home at a time.”
Formerly CEO and founder of Legacy Homes Sotheby’s Real Estate, with over 28 years in the professional real estate industry, Rose and her team have endeavored without wavering and have succeeded in their pursuit to position her team as a premium residential real estate brokerage in the Eastern San Francisco Bay Area region focusing in Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, Concord, Antioch, Pittsburg, Danville, Hercules, and all other East and West County areas.
“Having purchased three homes and selling two, I can say without a doubt, Nick Preciado, as both the seller’s and buyer’s agent (mine), was by far the greatest experience I’ve ever had in this venue called homebuying. Due to my unique work schedule, being that I was available for short periods of time, I had to move on from two previous agents. Nick not only worked with me and around that challenge, but never showed any frustration and always made himself available to me and for the cause. Nick and Rose have put together an incredible team of professionals for every aspect of the endeavor, i.e. inspections, home warranties, and lenders, along with the ability to refer reputable professionals for any needs after purchase. They walked me through each step and Nick mediated for me in every cause and situation that arose. For something as stressful and time-consuming as purchasing is, Nick was heaven sent and continues to be accessible even after the transaction was completed. I can’t say enough, so will end with this: if you’re a seller, use Nick! If you’re a buyer, use Nick and then use Rose, Nick’s wife, as your lender! They’re a team hat gets things done expeditiously and extraordinarily well.”

“I had the chance to known Rose and her husband Nick for over 12 years on a personal and professional level. They are amazing and I am so glad to know them and worked with them. My first professional relationship with them was in 2012 when I was in a difficult situation and was looking to do a short sale of my first home. They were there to guide me and support me and ensured a nice transition of my property to the new owner. They took over all of the relationship with the bank and made sure the house was priced correctly and ready for open house. When it came time to market the property, Rose again excelled. She took picture shots and perfectly captured what is special about my (former) townhouse. She chose the best photos and put them into a very impressive brochure. She wrote enticing and elegant text to go in the brochure and on the MLS. Since the neighborhood was a key feature of my property, she went the extra mile in sourcing open-house snacks from a hip local bakery to highlight the special location. Communication was always easy. Nick and Rose were always available via text and email whenever I needed them. When it came time for them to present the offers to me, they were again professional and efficient, offering advice on their various strengths and weaknesses. We were in a multiple-offer situation and Nick and Rose helped us navigate it effectively, deciding who to counter and on what terms. In the end, I found myself with an excellent offer with few contingencies and a very quick escrow! I liked Nick and Rose’s work as my listing agent so much that I decided end of last year to go ahead with them as my buying agent. They helped us a lot in understanding houses and the tricky Bay Area real estate. Rose also guided us through remodeling ideas for many houses and Nick was right on the money when it came to get estimates on remodeling costs. Nick would take a few hours to do very detailed comps for us if we were very interested in a house. This helped us walk away from some houses that seemed over-valued and bid on them if the price seemed right. Rose and Nick were always available by phone or email, even at very late hours in the night. All in all, we put offers on three houses. We lost the first one because of a multiple-bid situation. We had some inspection issues on the second one, and we lucked out on the third house and we were able to close. Everything went smoothly including the inspection, two appraisals, mortgage, and the eventual close of escrow. We moved into the house last week and are very happy with our purchase. I would highly recommend Rose and Nick to all home buyers out there. Rose and Nick really care about their customers and go the extra mile. They are very friendly, reasonable, down to earth and extremely professional. Thank you Rose and Nick for helping us in getting our dream house, and we can’t wait to have you over to celebrate the wonderful event.”

We very much appreciate their kind understanding of our financial situation and limitations plus all their efforts to help in every way they can to get us the house of our dreams. Both were patient and pleasant to work with. We very much appreciate their genuine concern and how much they care for their clients. We are so stoked as we now live in the comfort of our beautiful new home. Thanks to Rose and Nick Preciado!”

“Thank you both so very much. Having friends who are consummate and caring professionals has meant so much to us. You knocked it out of the park this time on all levels–assessing, advising, proposing, marketing, selling, and ensuring closing. We couldn’t be more pleased, and will continue to share your names/company with all we know who are looking for real estate services.”

“Thank you very much for quickly finding a buyer and working with me through the entire selling process of the property at 2126 Lupine Road. It was challenging for all of us to do things from a distance, and especially from foreign locations. I appreciate that you tried to make the experience less daunting. The updates, guidance, and advice were very helpful. We are glad that everyone was happy and satisfied in the end. Please give my regards to Nick for being patient and working with us through all the inspections, repairs, alarms, etc. on the house. I apologize for the constant calls made on weekends and late evenings. I hope the experience with us did not cause any trauma. I will stop by if I am in the Bay Area and when my mother is able to travel, she will try to visit you both. She appreciates all the work you did to make this sale a success.”
