Couldn't have done it without them
Their data driven approach, focus on detail and amazing attitude towards providing the best possible service really made buying a house as smooth as possible. Oh, and the cash back is a game changer!
Paul B., San Francisco
We had a great experience!
My husband and I were were looking for an alternative to the traditional home buying process and we found that with Unlocked. They helped us with every step of the process, and we closed on our house in only three weeks and walked away with a big rebate!
Stephanie L., Napa
A MAJOR thing was the way they treated me.
As a single young woman, previous realtors have been condescending to me, however this was not my experience with Unlocked. They were very professional, but down to earth, and very easy to talk to. Thank you for taking the stress out of the home buying process!
Alina B., Los Altos
We couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out.
Jesse was responsive and incredibly patient in explaining everything to us and answering even our most basic questions. The rebate was really the icing on the cake.
Olivia R., Los Angeles
We had a fantastic experience working with Unlocked.
We were very happy to find Unlocked which provides cash back rebate. To our surprise, the service was also - by far - the best we have experienced working with real estate professionals.
Amia L., San Francisco
They were swift in putting in our offer within 12 hours of being informed.
They are very very prompt on emails, answering questions within the hour and getting on a call when needed. They are upfront about everything.
Vivek T., Mountain View
We would use them again in heartbeat.
Their valuation analysis was thoughtful and detailed, and they gave us good insights on the disclosures. They were responsive throughout the process and did a great job of making us feel as if we were their only client.
Andy A., San Francisco
Extremely impressed with the service.
Their competitive analysis was especially helpful and they were always very responsive. The cash back was a huge deal for us and we're so happy the quality was even better than most agents we've interacted with on top of it!
Sara T., Burlingame
It always felt like Unlocked was on our team, never pressuring us.
The biggest highlight was how incredibly responsive he was. Since we're first time buyers, we had a ton of questions about the process, and he was always great about replying quickly to our many, many emails, even on the weekends.
Ritu V., Alamo
I'm a big fan of Unlocked. You just couldn't find a better agent.
We had worked with other real estate agents in the past, but Unlocked's analysis blew away all the competition. Because of their research, we felt very confident putting in bids.
Stu S., San Francisco
Thanks to Unlocked, we closed on our dream home.
We are so happy that we found Unlocked. They are very detail-oriented and data driven to help us make well informed decisions to place offers. The whole process was seamless and smooth.
Thea Z., Pacheco
One of the best decisions we made.
I was impressed from beginning to end, from the custom Unlocked reports that gave us confidence in making the right offer price, to the post-sale support. Their knowledge, communication, negotiation skills, and professionalism are simply top notch.

Why do I need a buyers’ agent when buying a new construction home?+−
A fair number of new construction home buyers work directly with the builder’s sales office to buy their home. While the sales office representatives are usually very friendly and knowledgeable about the community, there are a few reasons why you should consider using Unlocked as your buyers’ agent.
Firstly, it is important to realize the sales office employees represent the builder and do not represent you as the buyer. Unlocked would represent you and ensure that you have an experienced real estate agent looking out for your best interests.
Secondly, the cash back rebate! If you work without an agent, you will not receive any cash back rebate. However, if you work with Unlocked, we’ll rebate you 1% of the purchase price of your new home.
Thirdly, buying your new home is a big financial and emotional decision. It is prudent to have a professional real estate agent to guide you through the process and answer any questions you have along the way.
Which builders have you worked with in the past?+−
We've worked with all of the major Bay Area home builders, including Lennar, D.R. Horton, Toll Brothers, K.B. Homes, Taylor Morrison, Pulte, William Lyon, Shea Homes, TRI Point, The New Home Company and Meritage.
Which parts of the Bay Area do you cover?+−
We cover all of the Bay Area. We’ve worked with clients who were considering communities in the North Bay, East Bay, South Bay and San Francisco.
If you’re considering buying outside the Bay Area, please contact us and we’ll see if we are able to work with you remotely.
What does it cost to work with Unlocked?+−
Working with Unlocked is free! We are paid by the home builder through a commission. In addition to not costing you anything, we also offer you a cash back rebate of 1% of the purchase price of your new home.
Sounds great! How do I start?+−
Simply, contact us and we can get started helping you buy your new construction home. We will answer any questions you have and explain more about the home buying process.
Note, it is important that you pre-register your Unlocked agent as your agent prior to your first visit to a community's sales office. Some builders will not pay a commission if the buyers’ real estate agent was not registered before the first visit.
