Sophia Delacotte Realtor in Silicon Valley
Real Estate Agent for Home Buyers and Sellers
I started my career as a Realtor in the Silicon Valley in 2009 after more than 10 years of practice in real estate law, construction law, and property management law.
Over the course of my career I have dealt with many aspects of real estate transactions including the purchase and sale of residential properties.
My Legal Background
My legal background also puts me in a unique position to work through the issues of selling properties as part of divorce settlements, short sales, or probate situations. I also serve on a regular basis as a real estate mediator in court.
My Negotiating skills
I spent most of my professional life closing deals in a large variety of circumstances and developed the ability to bring any negotiations to a swift and satisfactory conclusion.
To succeed, I rely on my ability to break down a problem into its components rapidly as well as logical thinking and emotional intelligence.
I also have acquired effective communication skills and the ability to adapt to a multiple personalities across cultures.
As buying or selling your home can be challenging, especially in economically uncertain times, you can trust me all the way to the end of your real estate journey, whether this is your first home acquisition or sale, whether you need help dealing with a short sale foreclosure, whether you are looking to invest in under-valued investment properties in Silicon Valley.
I am an Alumna of La Sorbonne Law School in Paris and also studied in New York University thanks to a scholarship I won following a national selection process. As a result, I am in a better position than most of my peers to write real estate contracts that protect my clients' best interests when selling or buying homes.
I am a licensed Realtor in San Jose and in the State of California and a member of the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors, (SCCAOR) California Association of Realtors (CAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).
I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and Certified HAFA Specialist (CHS) in Silicon Valley in California, specialized in short sales and foreclosures help and prevention.
If you are a qualified home buyer in San Jose, I can assist you to acquire foreclosed homes with the Purchase Assistance Loan (PAL) Program of the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County as well as homes for sale available via the Dream Home Program in San Jose, CA.
I am a French native. I have lived in Paris, London, Berlin, and New-York before settling in sunny San Jose in Silicon Valley, CA, in 2007.
I am lucky to have lived and traveled extensively in Europe as well as in the United States, where I learnt to adapt to different cultures and lifestyles. I found out that reciprocal trust between you and people you interact with will always enable you to make a difference in your professional or personal life, regardless
of the country you live in.
During my spare time, I enjoy dancing, bargain hunting, travel and interior decoration.
