The ideal home buying experience

As a first time homebuyer, the process can be daunting to say the least. I cannot imagine having gone through this process with anyone other than the entire Torii team. Mike and Lauren answered the million questions I had, gave me insight with their expertise, and always made sure I felt comfortable with every decision. Seriously cannot recommend them enough for the ideal home buying experience and let's not forget the closing costs they put back into your pocket!

Professional, personable and helpful throughout

I can't say enough positive things about my Torii experience. They were great! First off, Zach took the time to walk me through the entire process and answer any questions I had about what working with Torii would be like and how they really make the home buying process as seamless and stress-free as possible, all the while paying for your closing costs! Second, Jason was more than we could ever ask for in an agent. He was extremely knowledgeable and stood by us every step of the way. Not only did he answer every single question we had, but he also was always super responsive. Also did I mention they pay closing costs?!?! They saved us ~$7K, no gimmicks, nothing. They also set us up with an amazing real estate attorney and home inspector. All who stuck with us throughout our uncommon use and occupancy period. I would highly recommend using Torii for first-time home buyers, or experienced home buyers just looking to save on costs. They truly are a one stop-shop for the home buying experience and are extremely professional, personable and helpful throughout the whole process. I would give them 10 stars if I could!

Absolutely fabulous

Bought our home with Torii. Mike and Lauren were absolutely fabulous. They took away most of the stress of buying home, With their calm and professional manners. Weren’t pushy to make a sale, genuinely wanted to find the best home for us and our future family. Using Torii was so smooth and rhythmic, like a 1940s jazz club.

Honest and patient… highly recommend!

“As a first-time home buyer, we feel lucky to have been working with Cathy and Torii to find our first home in the bay area. Cathay is very professional, responsive, and considerate to her customers. Every time we had a tour of the properties we were interested in, she arrived early to have a good understanding of the property we were about to see. She was well prepared and did her own research on the properties for us. She was honest and shared her opinion and thoughts on the pros and cons of the properties. She was patient to answer our questions. Cathy is also a great communicator that proactively collected various helpful information from the seller agents and relevant parties (i.e. HOA, sewer company) throughout our house searching process. We are very satisfied and thankful for her five-star service. Highly recommend working with Cathy and the Torii team!

Torii was FANTASTIC!!!

Torii got us our dream home! Our agent Jarman was always available to answer any questions, offer advice, or to tour homes. She was flexible and informative. We were able to get a great deal on a house that had all we were hoping for. What's better than that? Jarman fought for us to get our home and we definitely would have been out bid and lost the house if it were not for Jarman's persistence, great advice, and knowledge. We trust her and loved working with her. She will be our only agent going forward, for all our needs. Torii was FANTASTIC!!!

Highly recommended… we got the house!

For anyone out there looking for something you can count on to advocate for you, Cathy is as good as they come. She is on top of every step along the way. She responds quickly and follows up with banks, sellers, contractors, inspectors...without being asked. We are very thankful to have worked with her to buy our first home. She was always on-time or early and several times showed up to allow inspectors/contractors to do their thing when we were not able to make it. Overall I highly recommend Cathy and the Torii team, for your buying agent needs. Cathy remained calm no matter what curveball was thrown our way. She remained professional when others involved lost their cool. In the end, we got the place we wanted. Thank you Cathy.

Torii really does live up to the hype

Where do I even begin? I’ve actually been looking forward to writing this so well-deserved review. Torii is INCREDIBLE, and it amazes me that there are so many people out there still using a traditional real estate model. Torii has a totally client-centric approach, and makes it effortlessly easy for buyers. My fiancé and I just bought our first home (after touring 45 houses and having no idea what the buying process would entail), and had the immense pleasure of working closely with Mike, and also Lauren and the rest of the fantastic Torii team. They really understood us and our requirements, and were super responsive. The “team” (mortgage broker, inspector, insurance broker, attorney) were all super coordinated and in lock-step throughout the whole process. We never felt pressured to use Torii’s preferred partners, but can’t even imagine trying to navigate everything with a group of people who didn’t know how to work together. It was very efficient; everyone we worked with was superb and made us feel that we were getting a great value. The best part (there are so many of them!)? We got fully reimbursed for all closing costs the DAY OF closing. Torii really does live up to the hype and deliver on their promises in every way. EXCELLENT experience. Thank you!

Couldn’t be happier with the service

Purchasing a home with Torii is the best decision I ever made. Mike was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and handled the negotiation exceptionally well. Zach was quickly in touch after the sale to give me my Torii credit. I couldn't be happier with the service they provided.

Great at negotiating and very transparent

It was a pleasure working with Jarman and Torii! She made the home buying process so easy. She was quick to respond - always on it whenever I had a question or needed an update. She is also great at negotiating and is very transparent about the way she does business. I truly couldn't have asked for a better agent and I'm so glad to have worked with Jarman. Highly recommend her and Torii to anyone who is new at this home-buying process (or even those that aren't new!) A huge bonus that Torii helps to pay for closing costs! Thanks Tony, Cathy, and the rest of the Torii team as well!
