“We were privileged to work with Latife to find our dream property here in the Napa Valley. We have lived and owned property on both the East Coast and West, and Silicon Valley and ultimately decided to call Saint Helena home. Latife is the consummate professional and is tireless in working as an advocate for her clients. She has a sophisticated understanding of all of the elements that are important when buying property in this area and goes above and beyond to ensure that she shares critical information with you. Latife works well with another agents and we never doubted her commitment to us as clients. She is the most responsive agent we have ever encountered. We could not recommend Latife more highly, whether you are looking for a primary residence, a second home, investment property or magical vineyard. We have recommended Latife to multiple friends and colleagues, all of whom have raved about her assistance. You will be in great hands with Latife!”

“They don’t make them any better than Latife! She has represented us in four transactions and we couldn’t be happier. She’s smart, she listens, she’s tenacious, she’s honest and she always provides the best counsel, even when it may be something we don’t want to hear. I have highly recommended her to others and will continue to do so. Latife is without question the best, most professional realtor we’ve ever worked with.”

Barbara Oliver

“I have known Latife for close to 20 years and I am happy to say she is one of the most honest, professional and trustworthy people I have ever met. If anyone ever asks for a real estate reference, she is absolutely the first one who comes to mind. My husband and I have appreciated her expertise for several transactions over the years and each one turned out exceptionally well.”

Christopher West

Angela Longyear

“My family & I have used Latife for 10 years. We highly recommend her because of our numerous, successful transactions over the years. She always handles business with the upmost care and detail. She is knowledgeable about the Valley as a whole and about seamless real estate procedures. 5 stars all the way!”

“Latife Hayson is one of the most accomplished and detail-oriented agents I’ve met in my own 25-year career.She and I met through a professional organization and she has since advised several key clients of mine who own vineyard properties. Her command of various aspects of what are often highly complicated transactions is truly impressive. And she’s a fun and dynamic person whose a pleasure to be around. This other review sounds like sour grapes to me ;)”

Elaine Fohr

“My husband was a commercial real estate broker for over 30 years in San Francisco. Several years ago Latife handled a residential purchase for us in Yountville which involved extensive renovations. She was the most professional, knowledgeable and diligent agent we have ever worked with. We would recommend her without reservation.”

Frank Naeymi-Rad

“We are from Illinois and new property owners in Napa Valley. We purchased our first property from Latife 1½ years ago. I must admit the diligence and wealth of knowledge about challenges and responsibilities that we needed to consider was overwhelming. Even though she was representing the seller, she did not hesitate to make sure everyone involved was aware of their responsibilities and she created a win-win experience for both sides. Recognizing her unique talent and understanding of the real estate market in NAPA Valley, we reconnected with Latife and engaged her on our second purchase of property in the Valley. I have to admit the process was fast, clean and enjoyable. Both my wife and I highly recommend her if you want to purchase property in NAPA. Latife is the best!”

Julia Hinshaw

“Latife made our transaction in Napa Valley happen. She is the utmost professional and literally handled everything regarding our transaction. She has an amazing eye for detail and made everything happen seamlessly!”

Jack Herr

“I recently worked with Latife on the purchase of a fully entitled piece of land in Healdsburg. She helped us maneuver the complicated permitting process with the city, helped us locate a general contractor, assisted in the design of the home, and also gave us guidance on how to maintain the vineyard on the property. Her knowledge and expertise in resident real estate in the sonoma and napa county is very hard to come by. I look forward to working with her in the future and I would recommend anyone interested in purchasing a home in the sonoma or napa county to work with Latife.”

Rob Andreae, The Advisory Group, San Francisco

“Latife, I have been advising clients for nearly 20 years in the Napa Valley and have worked with many real estate brokers and agents. You are a true professional, your expertise and experience are a great asset in complex and challenging transactions. You have been a pleasure to work with.”

Jim Berry, Vice President, The RMCI Group, Inc.

“Latife, I have worked with dozens of agents over the past 15 years and must say that you are by far the most responsive, hardworking person I have had the pleasure to work with. Not only did you bring us a buyer quickly, your negotiation skills, professionalism and understanding of the market far surpassed our expectations. I truly appreciated you keeping me updated on nearly a daily basis and you made the process truly enjoyable!”

D.J Grubb, President, The Grubb Company, Realtors, East Bay

“You have a remarkable grasp of the technicalities of purchasing luxury estate and vineyard properties. Your ability to find a very common sense negotiation and successful sale is a priceless service……thank you Latife, we will always feel confident in referring you our most sophisticated clientele and friends.”

Steven Merrill, Venture Capitalist, San Francisco

“Over the years I have bought and sold about five homes and in that process have been exposed to numerous realtors. I can unequivocally say that Latife was the most effective and professional one of any. She was extremely diligent, pleasant and, most importantly, honest and always put my interest ahead of her own, including talking me out of a purchase and herself out of a potential sizable commission before I eventually bought in Rutherford. I cannot recommend Latife more highly.”

Dario Sattui, Owner, V. Sattui Winery and Castello di Amorosa, Napa Valley

“We knew exactly what we were looking for in a wine country get-away, but it was you who made that vision a reality. You demonstrated a complete mastery of the market and a wonderful attention to every detail. And when we found the perfect place, you proved yourself a skilled and deft negotiator. We always knew that you had our best interests at heart, even when they did not coincide with yours.”

Mike & Barbara Oliver, Retired Grape Growers

“We’ve bought and sold several properties over the past few years and have worked with realtors from all over the spectrum.  Latife is unquestionably the best we have ever worked with.  She listens, she’s smart, she realistic and she’s tenacious.  Our recent sale of our vineyard and home was extremely complex.  Latife guided us successfully through the maze.  We don’t think many realtors would have demonstrated her level of competence, expertise and focus. We were fortunate indeed to have her representing us. She’s the best.”

Tom Davies, President, V. Sattui Winery, St. Helena
