    Adriana gave Hope 5 stars out of 5
    this is the second time I have turned to Hope as an agent. First time was in 2007 when I bought my home in Vacaville, I was new to the area and she came highly recommended. Second time, I sold my house in 2021 and when I decided to put it on the market it never occurred to me to look for another agent! Hope is professional, explains everything very clearly, follows up (and thru), she is there to look out for her clients even when she really does not have to be present, (some inspections, signing, etc). Hope ALWAYS makes herself available to you, If you call or text she responds within an hour, usually less, even in the evening hours. Her local knowledge and the fact that she is well known in the area is also a huge help. Most important to me is the way she geniunely cares about what she does, and for YOU, and works to get you the best deal whether you are buying or selling, and I have been on both sides now with Hope!

    Myself and my wife reached out to Hope almost two years ago to discuss the home buying process. It has been a long time coming, but I am so happy that we finally closed on our first home! Hope was very responsive throughout the process, helping us understand every detail about the home buying process. The level of service Hope provided to us, was unmatched. We looked at many homes, and in each home Hope would point out every little detail about the homes to make sure we knew what was wrong, or needed to be fixed etc. We also had the opportunity to work with Ivan Maldonado during our home buying experience. Ivan was so helpful, going to look at many homes with us. He was able to point out things that needed to be fixed, things to think about in the future, and just overall made our home buying experience an enjoyable one. Throughout the entire process, both Hope and Ivan answered all of our questions, sometimes it may have been too many but they always made sure we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend Hope Hernandez and Ivan Maldonado if you are looking to buy your first home, purchase a new property, or sell your home. They are both so knowledgeable, know the market, and know the local areas where you may be looking to buy a home. Me and my wife are so grateful for both Hope and Ivan, they made this home buying experience something we will always remember. Thank you both again so much! We are so happy with our first home, and it still feels so surreal! If you are looking for someone that will make you feel comfortable throughout the process, we would highly recommend both Hope Hernandez and Ivan Maldonado to make your home buying experience both professional and enjoyable!

    Hopes Hernandez did an amazing job the first time she helped me with the purchase of my first home in 1998; and once again in 2021 with the purchase of my second home. Hopes outstanding performance, guidance, and assistance before during and after the purchase was incredible because she helped me in all aspects and was there when I needed help, she answered all my questions and her advice was timely and accurate. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a hard working extremely knowledgeable realtor who knows the real-estate business. I am very lucky to have found such an amazing realtor!

    As first-time home buyers who decided to look for a home during a historically wild sellers market, my partner and I knew we needed to find an agent with good experience and local knowledge. When we first met Hope, she made us feel secure and confident that together we would find a great home for us. Hope took the time to answer all our questions and give us critical insights on the home buying process that made us feel more prepared. She was honest and trustworthy throughout the entire process. After touring a few homes, we had to pause our search for a few months for personal reasons and Hope was understanding and patient until we felt ready to begin looking again. When we did resume our search Hope and her partner Ivan were ready and available at all hours of the day to help us resume. After we found the right home and made an offer Hope and her team were there throughout the entire process to guide us, negotiate for us and make us feel confident even though this was our first time doing this. We could not have asked for a better agent and team to work with and are really excited we will soon move into our new home.

    We worked with Hope and Ivan to sell our condo and were really impressed with how fast they were able to get it sold. Ivan and Hope do their research and keep you updated on their selling strategies. They are extremely communicative and made the entire process stress-free. I would gladly work with Hope or Ivan in the future.

    I have worked with Hope since 2017 when she helped me sell my home in Vacaville. There were several problems with the sale and she helped fix the issues! Great sale. Then 2018 she helped me purchase a Condo, again with issues she worked through. Then 2 months ago she helped us purchase another Condo in Sacramento. Love, love to work with Hope!! Can't say enough of her work ethic.

    HOPE is the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have used Hope for both a sale of my big house to the purchase of my Condo. There was a problem with both the sale and the purchase due to the 2008 melt down. Due to her knowledge, she was able to get me through both issues with time to spare. Working with Hope has been a real pleasure. Kathleen Cooper

    Hope has been our family realtor for many years. She has successfully assisted me and my children in all our home purchases for over a decade. She is professional, knowledgeable, and proficient in all aspects of the home buying and selling process. I enthusiastically recommend Hope for all of your real estate needs. Her attention to detail, stellar communication, and personal care make the process as stress-free as possible. We are grateful for our smooth and successful transactions. Thank you, Hope!

    Selling a home can be a trying experience and an emotional roller coaster. We hired Hope to market and sell our beautiful home. She knew all the details of our home from the last time she sold it. The photographer / videographer she hired to market our home did beautiful work. Despite the fact that our family was living seven hours apart Hope made every meeting work. We had showings day one two and three and then it was a wrap. Hope and her team were on top of all the details and deadlines. We had a positive experience and are grateful for Hope's knowledge and how she made this transition as smooth as possible for our family. Thank you Hope!

    Hope is awesome! She was very understanding of me and my family's situation being that I'm in the military and wife is pregnant. She always gave me sound guidance in what was needed to prepare for selling the home. She showed a lot of care/compassion and was a tuned to my desires for the sale. Hope worked out a great deal for us to sell our home before my move. I wouldn't have asked for anybody else to help me sell my home.

    Hope helped me list my house in Suisun city. Within 2 days we had 5-6 very strong offers. There were some hurdles during the sale but Hope took care of each and every problem with her extremely strong negotiation skills and real estate expertise. And made sure we got the best price for our house. She constantly communicates not just with seller but also buyer's agent, buyer's lender, escrow officers and even inspectors to make sure sale is completed as smooth as possible and on time. We are so proud of our decision to hire Hope as our listing agent. Thank you Hope for going above and beyond for taking care of us.

    Hope was there for us every step of the way while we looked for a new home and when we sold the home we lived in for over 23 years. Finding a new home can be difficult when the inventory is low. We saw a lot of lovely places on line, but not many were actually available. With just a few moments notice Hope would make arrangements for us to see a house, and she was by our side throughout the negotiations and purchase.

    Hope is a very kind, understanding and knowledgeable agent. She went above and beyond to make me happy; and ensure the transaction went smoothly. Buying or selling a house can be very stressful. Hope will do her best to make it the easiest possible for you. After buying 3 houses from 3 different agents, I can say that there are hardly any agents out there would spend the time and money to provide the kind of service she provides. I am very grateful for her to be my agent.

    Kathryn gave Hope 5 stars out of 5
    Buying or selling your home is likely the largest financial transaction you will ever make. Our recent sale was successful because of Hope Hernandez and her team at Kappel Gateway Realty. It began with a discussion on pricing our home. A fair asking price was agreed to, Then came the photographer - Hope even chose the time of day for the photos to make the most of our home and location. A selling sheet highlighted what was special about our house. Knowing that Hope had properly priced, photographed and marketed our house we sat back and waited for offers. It happened soooo fast, 10 days later we had a nearly full price offer. The closing went smoothly and we never felt that we were not informed or prepared for the details of the transaction. Hope is a community person and has earned the trust of her clients. She has been named Realtor of the Year several times. We are pleased to recommend Hope without reservation.

    Hope is one of the best realtors I have ever met. I had the opportunity to work closely with Hope for years. She is extremely experienced, highly diligent in her work, she know what she is talking about, she is a great negotiator and knows exactly what to do to troubleshoot any situation that arrives in her transactions. Best of all her attributes, she has this endless patience to listen to your concerns. I highly recommend Hope for all your real estate needs.

    I definitely wanted to let you know how happy we were working with Hope. We actually miss getting to talk to her on a frequent basis. I can't tell you enough how wonderful she is and how we are so happy that we chose her to work with. We worked with her on selling our home and to purchase another. Our journey was longer than most, I think, and full of ups and downs. Because our journey was an emotional rollercoaster, it was easier to deal with because of Hope's tremendous experience. She just knows how to deal with every situation and with every kind of player in this tough world of real estate. I cannot imagine going through our journey with a new not so experienced realtor. We appreciated her honesty and patience with us. She can be tough when she needed to be and be an amazing support system when I needed it. I loved how professional she is and her dedication to her profession and to her clients is beyond compare. I would highly recommend Hope to anyone making a big decision in buying or selling. Hope will take care of her clients from the first meeting to the very end of your journey. We hold a special place in our hearts for Hope!

    Hope has been solid as a rock in regards to her customer service approach to our real estate needs. She is highly knowledgeable, sensitive, considerate to stresses and pressures that come along with buying and selling. Most of all, The Howard Family trust Hope Hernandez.

    Hope helped me sell a home (Feb 2016) which was going through probate very quickly and for a higher sale value than I expected. Her expertise in the local market and in the best listing timing and pricing made a big difference, in addition to her advice on what home improvements were most useful. She also had good advice on selecting the best offers and their pros and cons. I would definitely recommend Hope if you need a real estate agent.

    Thank you and your team for going above and beyond at times to sell this property. It took a bit longer than planned, but through flexibility, the house got sold on 20-Apr-19. You've been a great help to me, accommodating my situation while in the middle of PCSing/moving overseas. I will definitely refer anyone I know to you for any real estate/moving needs. Again, thank you so much.

    My name is Kathleen and I have worked with Hope Hernandez in both the sale of my home in August 2017 to the current purchase of a Condo in January 2018.  She is very hardworking and keeps everything going, even when the other agents (in both cases) were not knowledgeable about all the different documents that needed to be taken care of in a timely manner.  I would highly recommend Hope Hernandez as the best agent to use, whether you are buying or selling, she is the best I know.

    Hope helped me find/buy a home in 2008. She knew what my needs were and if i recalled correctly she only had to show me two houses and one was the perfect home. Great neighborhood, good price, and close to my job. There is no doubt i will use Hope in the future and will refer her to friends, and co-workers who are looking for a house.

    How to Get Approved for an FHA Loan

    By Lizzie WeakleyFor many years, the Federal Housing Administration was regarded as a destination for borrowers with low to zero credit scores. However, the same cannot be said about the department today. The FHA is now a go-to-place for moderate-to-low income workers with good credit histories. A home is a long-term investment, however, when purchasing a home, you may be unable to provide up-front cash for the house. In this case, an individual needs to get a mortgage loan to boost their home ...
