Soly Retter
Coldwell Banker Realty

As an expert agent who has 20+ years of experience in Santa Clara County, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in this area. You need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to help you find the perfect home matching your criteria at the right price. I will provide you with important information about the area, including comparable sales, neighborhood schools and other local amenities.

Sell a Home When it's time to move, you need an experiences and strong realtor on your side who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close and beyond.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, inspections, making small repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home staying on the market and one that's sold fast. With over 20+ years of experience and my Accredited Staging Professional designation, I can help you accomplish all that and more.


After living in 3 different continents I am very sensitive and respectful of different cultures. Fluent in English, Hebrew and Greek.

Buyers: I will patiently listen to your wants and needs and show your properties that meet your criteria, then skillfully negotiate a written offer, with terms approved by you.
Clients Testimonials
While Soly was selling our house in California, my husband and I were living 3000 miles away in Boston. She made it effortless for us to deal with the paperwork remotely, was always available, and got us a price that was 10% higher than any comparable house in our neighborhood had ever sold for. Soly was a pleasure to work with, and has our highest recommendation.
-S & D Rose (sellers)
Soly did an amazing job, working tirelessly trying to get the best deal possible. For example preparing contracts at 10pm on a Friday, so we could move forward quickly on the Saturday! She has a wealth of experience in the property business and is very happy to share that knowledge. I highly recommend Soly.
-Richard Greenfield (buyer)

"You were very patient in dealing with the difficult sellers. I appreciated your persistence in trying to get the best deal for me.

I felt like you were always looking out for my best interests and always did a good job in explaining all the paperwork. Thank You!!”
-Kristen Honl (buyer and seller)
