Whether you’ve lived in your home 2 years or 20 years, you know it’s not just a shelter, or even another investment. It’s the place where your dreams come to life. In flower gardens and family rooms. Backyard barbecues and home-cooked Sunday dinners. It’s the place we raise our children. The nest we nudge them out of, and welcome them back to again and again. And for some, it’s even our place of business.
But there comes a day when it’s time to move on. Time to reflect on old memories, and build new ones. Time to leave the past behind for a new future.

What My Clients Have to Say
"When my beloved sister passed away in intestacy, she left all her assets for me to handle in a stressful probate process. I was in need of a realtor in the San Jose area that I could rely on to sell her house with the least amount of stress. Lisa was not someone I had in mind at the time. However, through my attorney's recommendation and my initial contact with her, I felt strongly that she was the right one for the job. As it turned out, I made a right decision. Not only Lisa had a "system" for the task, but also, more importantly, she was very knowledgeable, responsive, and consistent. She helped me with the professional services for relocation and reconditioning of the house and provided information helpful for me to make educated decisions. She even enlisted the help of her husband to do a number of things that otherwise needed to be done by a professional. I was a little emotional when I saw the house ready for the market and subsequently sold at the asking price. Lisa did a superb job that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend you to speak to her before choosing a realtor for your next real estate transaction.""
John Chou, Engineer
"We had the pleasure of working with Lisa in 2015 when it was time to sell our home. We met Lisa through her walking the neighborhood leaving door hangers.
We called her to seek some advice on how to prepare our home for sale. Lisa knew the market, inventory of homes and recommended that we go ahead and do a pocket listing. Three weeks later our home sold for above asking without us needing to do anything! She found exactly the right buyer for us and always made us her focus during the process. We are forever grateful."
"We were underprepared for the fierce competition to buy a home in West San Jose this spring. Lisa's calm professionalism helped us stay on track through challenging negotiations. She responded promptly and patiently to all our questions through the shopping and bidding process, and even after closing when we had some concerns about disclosure. In a difficult market, she helped us succeed in buying the first house we bid on, and we love it. I would not hesitate to recommend her."
Peggy S., Financial Advisor
"Lisa is, without a doubt, the most professional, thorough, knowledgeable realtor I know. She recently helped me purchase a home in Santa Cruz that already had an offer on it when I saw it. She communicated effectively with the listing agent and was able to quickly prepare an offer for consideration. She followed up on all the details, inspections, reports, and walk through. From start to finish she was there making sure that everything was in order. She is also very calm and reassuring which is so important in this crazy housing market. I can’t say enough good things about her. I recommend her without reservation and will be referring my friends to her if they need a real estate professional."
Judith T., Retired Teacher and Programmer
"Lisa helped me through a difficult time transitioning my parents home to the market. She was patient and attentive providing referrals to service providers to handle logistics. I never felt pressured and fortunately the house sold quickly at above asking price. For anyone who is dealing with not only transition housing issues but who just wants a pleasant home selling experience, please consider Lisa. It was the best call I made."
Tony D.,Millbrae, CA
We asked Lisa to assist us based on the great service she had previously provided to a family member. We were selling our house in preparation for moving to the UK. From the start Lisa was very professional and detailed. She explained the entire process, giving us good advice on getting the house ready to sell. The staging she provided was fantastic as were the marketing fliers, and feedback from open houses was great. Lisa generated an extremely high level of interest in our property. As the market was starting to turn as we went active, Lisa provided good guidance on what to do and how to handle a range of offers that did come in. Overall Lisa made the process as pain free as possible.
Iain D.,Cambrian Area, San Jose
""Here in Silicon Valley, the epicenter of over achievers, it is difficult to find someone who lives up to our over-achieving expectations. Fortunately for us, Lisa Wiseman from Intero Realty found us. We knew of her as she had been leaving door hangers and mailing local flyers before we were ready to sell. Once we met with her in person, we knew that she was the agent for us. She is personable and professional but more importantly knows her craft. From the time we signed an agreement to the time we closed the sale was a mere three weeks. This was due entirely to Lisa advising us about timing. Lisa provided us with options and detailed market information in our specific area and never pressured us to take any particular option but noted factually all the pros/cons of each option. We were thrilled and surprised that our home sold without ever reaching MLS and we obtained the price point that we were looking for. We strongly recommend Lisa because of the stellar job that she did for us and hope that you will give her a call if you are considering buying/selling." Max and Lisa, Retired"
Max and Lisa, Retired,Elk Grove, CA
"Lisa was highly competent throughout the transactions of selling our home and purchasing a new one at the same time. Lisa offered a LOT of extras and had access to the professional services we needed to put our home into the best selling shape possible. She was a calming influence and without her, I don't believe we would be happily settled in our new home!"
Judy M., Executive Secretary, Stanford ,Mountain View, Ca
"Lisa is very well known in the neighborhood and across the Bay Area. She is respected for the great job she does of representing buyers and sellers alike.
Last year a friend and I decided to sell a rental property that we jointly owned, and which was located outside of the bay. I immediately thought of Lisa. She responded very promptly to my initial inquiry, helped us to find a realtor who knew the area where the home was located and stayed engaged throughout the jointly listed sale. Lisa was on-hand at every stage of the transaction, providing guidance, and lending her experience and expertise to the process to overcome issues whenever we hit a bump.
Her calm, assured, informed and professional way of doing business, is a breath of fresh air, in a profession where individuals can sometimes disappoint. I would use Lisa again without hesitation and it is therefore without reservation that I write this recommendation for her."
Adolph Hunter, Global Communications Director
"Lisa was very professional and did a great job with hosting our open house. Our house sold over just one weekend and we were able to turn around and put an offer on a house we fell in love with. Everything went very smooth and very quick! Lisa even had her husband help us move--talk about going the extra mile! She is not only very professional but she is very personable as well and truly cares about her clients which is a very rare thing these days in any industry. I would highly recommend to use Lisa for your next real estate transaction!"
Trish Ford, Benefits Director
"We selected Lisa Wiseman to sell our home because of her warmth and professionalism. After my father passed away, we put our long-time family home up for sale - the home that we grew up in since 1960. Lisa guided us expertly through a transaction that was a bit emotional for us. Lisa's calm demeanor was very reassuring and her knowledge of the neighborhood and market was very accurate. From the open house to meeting buyers and their agents, Lisa was there each step of the way. Her marketing strategy including not only a video tour of the home, but also an aerial tour of the neighborhood, courtesy of a high-tech drone. Weeks after the sale and before escrow closed, Lisa still showed up just to check in on the home. Thanks to Lisa, our home was sold quickly and for top dollar."
Bev Stenehjem, Human Resources
"Lisa is amazing. She helped us sell our house in South San Jose in a week. She is very knowledgeable about the area and knows the ins and outs of real estate. She even brought some of her own items from around her house to help us stage ours. What I appreciated most however is that she made sure we knew our options but allowed us to choose what we wanted to do. I recommend Lisa highly to anyone buying or selling a home in the bay area."
Justin Smith, Website Designer
"We Interviewed several realtors before choosing Lisa to be our listing agent. She surpassed all our expectations of what we were looking for in an agent. Our house was sold smoothly, quickly and we received top dollar. Lisa did an amazing job with everything, she listened to what we wanted and followed thru -from her professional flyers to the virtual tour to staging, holding open houses, talking to buyers and agents, sending eblasts to other INTERO agents. Lisa's marketing strategies and negotiating skills were impeccable. From start to finish Lisa was there, she always keep us informed and up to date. Lisa Wiseman has the professionalism, the knowledge, the listening skills and the communication skills that makes an excellent choice for your agent. She has our vote of confidence and we highly recommend Lisa for your real estate transaction."
Kevin and Debbie, Entrepeuners,San Jose, CA
"Lisa did a great job of staging and selling our home. We highly recommend her!"
Nancy D. Rowe, Retired
"Lisa has guided us through 1 sale and 3 purchases with current values of about $5M. She handled them all with the utmost professionalism and good humor. (Both are required) Call Lisa for all your real estate needs."
George Havelka, Retired Entrepeuner
"Lisa was concerned with my welfare as the seller, and did everything she could to make the selling process comfortable for me. She explained each document I needed to sign at each step along the way, and I was able to use docusign to sign remotely. I appreciated her willingness to help me however she could."
Karla Richardson, Educational Administrator
"Lisa is a very delightful agent. She is very aware of the surrounding neighborhood and how it fits into the total marketplace. She has excellent communication skills and keeps her clients updated regularly. She has excellent negotiating skills and is realistic in the expectations of her clients. If you need a top-notch agent, don't hesitate to call on Lisa!"
Dale Taketa, Retired Entrepeuner
"Lisa is a true professional that shows in how smoothly our sale went and how well informed she keep us! Not only her attention to the all details was beyond expectations but her recommend contactors were spot on. I will use her services again on my next sale or purchase."
Craig S., John Deere Salesman
"It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Realtor Lisa Wiseman. We had interviewed two other realtors who were especially familiar with our particular neighborhood. Lisa's fully researched and professional presentation made it clear who we should select. With her superb marketing skills with Intero Realty, she managed to get top dollar in just two weeks for our house in Downtown San Jose. Every one of the many complicated details of the sale was worked to perfection without any problems. She also arranged the purchase of another home for us in the same neighborhood in a timely manner so that both houses actually closed a day apart. She was able to deftly work with a very difficult seller to our advantage. Throughout the whole process it was as if we were Lisa's only clients. She spent countless hours initiating, negotiating, and completing with success our sale and purchase. Lisa's professionalism and attention to every detail in our sale and purchase made it all happen. It made our transition from one house to another very comfortable and confident that we were being taken care of. Any seller or purchaser of a home would be very happy with Lisa Wiseman as their realtor."
"I highly recommend Realtor Lisa Wiseman. My sister had a serious illness and was not feeling well when she decided that she needed to sell her home. Lisa understood the situation and tried to minimize the interruptions required when selling a home. She researched the area and had a private showing for 2 days and received an offer the next day above the asking price. She paid attention to details beyond our expectations and her recommendations for contractors were extremely helpful. Her availability, passion, energy, and integrity helped make this a positive experience. She deserves my 5 stars!!"
Miki, W, Retired,San Jose, CA
"The hubs and I got hooked up with Lisa over a year ago through Zillow. We were in the market to buy a home in overly priced area in California with limited selection. The process was great with Lisa but not promising as far a perspectives. We ended up buying a fixer-upper from a friend without the use of Lisa but she did refer us to a great broker who helped us get the loan. Less than a year later after renovating the property we decided to take our growing family home where the cost of living was less and family was there to support us. We then summoned Lisa to be our listing agent. Although I would say she was better suited as a buying agent she did really well with us as sellers. She is very honest and knowledgeable. She remained professional even when I was unprofessional. She tends to keep things by the book which keeps people out of trouble and no surprises along the way. She even helped us stage our home and pick out paint and decor that help appeal to local buyers. Her husband and her brought a whole car load of things to help with staging. Also one thing that I greatly appreciated was her timely response. When you text or email she responded immediately. When you are dealing with big things you don't want to wait days to hear something. Lisa was exactly the person we needed for the process."
Nikki S., Nurse,San Jose, CA
"Lisa is the consummate real estate professional. She has a classic approach but utilizes all the modern tools to assist in the home buying experience. I ultimately did not end up buying because of a work re-location, but would work with her again if I was to return to the Santa Clara Valley. Her style and approach exceeded my expectations set from my first home buying experience with another Realtor when I purchased in Marin County.
She is high touch when needed and responsive to all text/email requests. She utilizes video walk through's when you are not able to view a home and sets you up with email alerts of all homes that hit MLS that meet your criteria. She spends time really listening to what you are looking for and only shows homes that are within your criteria.
I cannot speak to how the negotiation or closing process might be with her, but the search experience was effortless."Lisa has been a client of mine for over a year. During that time, I have found that she is not only very dedicated to her profession as a Realtor, but also extremely active in volunteer and charity work and events. Her compassion gives her a sense of awareness of the details that make her not just a Realtor listing and selling property, but a problem solver and humanitarian bettering the lives of clients and the public. If you want someone who will not just transact real estate, but also look out for the well-being of the client, Lisa is the Realtor for you."
-Sean F, CEO ETTBAD, LLC,Beverly Hills, Ca
"Working with Lisa has been a genuine pleasure. She is a top-flight professional with extensive knowledge in every aspect of residential real estate. Her attention to detail and availability exceeded my expectations. Working with me as an out-of-state seller, she provided full turn-key service including contractors, stagers and other resources. I would highly recommend Lisa for her passion, energy and integrity.
"Lisa far exceeded my expectations. She's very knowledgeable and quick to respond to any inquiries. After several months of looking together, she found the perfect house for me at an affordable price. I had seen it in the multiple listings, but passed it by. Lisa pointed out some of its virtues, we visited it and I bought it. I never thought I would find a house I loved as much as my previous house, in a neighborhood I like more.
Lisa is truly generous with her time and attention. She continued to recommend trades people months after the purchase. I'm very grateful to her for her expertise, perseverance and patience. "
Marge F., Retired,San Jose, CA
"We found Lisa through an Intero advertisement online and then we looked her up on Yelp to see if she had any reviews. There was only one at the time but we called her and were pleased to meet up with her a few days later.
Since we didn't live in the San Jose area, she was most helpful in determining neighborhoods that would suit our young family. As first-time home buyers, we were intimidated by the process of home buying but she walked us through all the paperwork as the process moved along.
We had previously contacted a loan company to finance our needs but they were not meeting our expectations so Lisa put us in contact with another company that was sharp and very proactive in their details of the financial paperwork.
We highly recommend Lisa for your home purchase, whether first-time or just upgrading. She is readily available and always willing to help in any way she can.
We don't plan on moving again for many years to come but if we had to, we'd call Lisa up instantly.
Dan and Hillary, Stanford Security and Mom of 4,San Jose, CA
"We used Lisa to help relocate my parents from their home of over 40 yrs, we couldn't have made a better choice! She helped in so many more ways than just the sale of the house. A year later and she's still in contact with us making sure they have all the sale documents for their income tax. She's one of those above and beyond kind of people and at this point, pretty much, a friend of the family. I recommend her 100%, especially if you're helping your parents relocate."
Stevi D, TSA Manager,San Jose, CA
"Lisa was such a good real estate agent for us. From the start she put us at ease because she knows how stressful making a decision to sell your house can be. Especially one that has been lived in for over 35 years! She was very professional in all areas of the process. She is skilled in knowing pertinent information and shared it with us continually during the process (showing us comps in the area,, step by step things we needed to attend to, etc..) She always reassured us when we got a little anxious or nervous about things and answered our questions and concerns promptly. She made me feel genuinely cared about and protected. I would not hesitate to recommend her highly. (5*s all the way)"
Joan T, Retired Teacher,San Jose, CA
"I'm old enough to have encountered many agents. Lisa IS THE BEST. Superior Market Knowledge, detail oriented, complete protection of your interests, tireless and fun to be with.......see for yourself. YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.
Lisa made it easy. She picked up on signals quickly. She kept my wife and I completely informed so that we couldn't have any 'he said/she said' moment. Plus Lisa took care of all the many details so that we could trust that all was being well handled and we could relax. Very Nice! We couldn't be happier with Lisa's performance. Most Excellent all the way around... we snagged a 5-plex in Monterey with Lisa leading the negotiation of a super price for us. Lisa was always positive and ready for the next. She can do so for you too."
George and Barbara, VP Tech Operations and Retired Therapist,Los Gatos, CA
"Whether you are selling or buying, Lisa is your is one of the most professional real estate agents I know in Santa Clara County. She is incredibly knowledgeable and knows what it takes to close a transaction. She really protects your interests before, during and after the transaction and keeps you well informed. She sold our Willow Glen home in record time and we would definitely call her again!"
Anne S, Yoga Instructor,Cupertino
"Lisa was very candid and helpful throughout the sale process of our home. She was very sensitive to our life-changing experience with this move, as we were selling a home in which we lived for more than 30 years. Her knowledge of the marketplace established a selling point that both maximized our value, yet made our home attractive to the marketplace. Her attention to detail and her regular communication allowed us to understand every step in the marketing, selling, and closing of the sale. Lisa is a very delightful agent. She is very aware of the surrounding neighborhood and how it fits into the total marketplace. She has excellent communication skills and keeps her clients updated regularly. She has excellent negotiating skills and is realistic in the expectations of her clients. If you need a top-notch agent, don't hesitate to call on Lisa! Without hesitation, I would recommend Lisa for your real estate needs."
