About: Ranked Top 10% of of San Mateo County agents since 2001 including "Best New Agent" first year in real estate , "Top Producing Agent" & "Most Transactions by an Agent" while with prestigious "Carrick & English" real estate firm in Burlingame. Also formerly with Alain Pinel and Elite Properties before obtaining CA Broker License and doing business independently as "Vincent C. Scherba Real Estate & Property Management". Possess a diverse business background few agents can compare with. I offer clients the opportunity to deal directly with a Realtor-Broker which requires more education & requirements than "salesperson agents". With the large corporate agencies such as Coldwell Banker, Alain Pinel & Intero you the client will never meet or have direct discussions with broker managing the office, but rather the salesperson agent who is one of hundreds within that firm. Deal directly with Vincent Scherba and get superior representation and experience to give you the edge you need in this competitive marketplace

Two words: honest & efficient! Very happy with the services Vincent provides, easy to work with, very knowledgable.Ann FahyVincent Scherba is the quintessential professional. He is reliable, trustworthy, and competent. He is a pleasure and a treasure. My relationship started with him being my tenant. We all need tenants who maintain our homes, but he actually personally gave it loving care and physical labor, mostly without charging me. He improved it by spending his time, labor, and money in enhancing the garden, repairing broken fences, leaking toilets, and doing minor painting. He found ways to save me money. Vincent took the time to explain many matters about owning and managing a house, so when he left to take care of aging parents in their homes, I asked him to manage my house. He was diligent in vetting prospective renters, responding to their concerns, and covering all of the paper work to protect me legally. Whenever there was a need, I could count on Vincent to handle it. Finally, when I decided to sell my house, Vincent expertise about the housing market helped to me to prepare and sell the home. When he identified people to improve the home, he monitored their work and gave me regular pictures and reports to ensure quality work and accountability. On the day of the first open house when rain created an unexpected flood around the house with only a few hours before prospective clients would arrive, he personally rushed to get a water pump to dry flooded areas. He also quickly mopped the floors to clean them from workers tracks. I never imagined a real estate agent so often being willing to physically do the work of caring for my house as a tenant, manager, and broker. Vincent was a gift to me and a genuine role model for his profession.Tommy WoonMy wife and I have known Vince for over 20 years. He has helped us in acquiring 2 Real Estate purchase transactions successfully over the years. What really separates Vince from other Realtors, is the level of service he provides his clients. He takes pride in researching information and knowing the current trends that are happening within the Bay Area Real Estate Marketplace. He also gives amazing and insightful advice on almost any matter a Homeowner or Renter would need to know. Lastly, Vince is completely truthful and honest. If you are looking for someone who is best in the business, Vince Scherba is the man to call.William Wolfe
Answers (2)Displaying: 2 Most Recent AnswersAnswered: May 8, 2017There are a couple small details you need to be aware of in making an offer "contingent on the successful close of your own home". #1 - that provision still requires you to deposit an "EMD" earnest money deposit" into escrow once your offer is accepted. That is different in all states & in California it is generally 3% of the purchase price, so if buying a home for $500,000 then you would still need to deposit $15,000 within 3 days of your offer being accepted. #2 - such offers with a contingency of sale of buyers property always provide the seller with a "kick-out clause". What this means is if another party comes in with a more desirable offer the seller can give you a limited amount of time to either remove your contingency clause protection or withdraw your offer altogether in order to accept the other party's offer.Answered: May 8, 2017Good question and no they're not all scams. Every county is different in CA in terms of real estate & you just have to know what to look for. A good knowledgeable mortgage agent is a valuable asset, but remember the persons doing home loans at lenders such as BoA, Chase, Wells Fargo are not licensed mortgage loan agents & not required to undergo continuing education requirements [so always go to a mortgage broker or mortgage banker that is licensed to do such business]. Next up is an experienced "seasoned" real estate broker with 2nd choice being a salesperson agent and there is definitely a difference between the 2 licenses. I use craigslist all the time for my property rentals I manage. 2 years ago I posted an ad that a professional couple with good credit was looking for a clean house in a good location with a lease-option to purchase it. I received 3 responses from property owners who were interested and I wrote up the paperwork for the one my wife & I preferred the most. So we rented the property at a below market rental rate with the right to purchase it at our discretion. If it benefits both parties in some way you can usually come to an agreement [which we did].
