More about Alba Lopez

Personal Background

Alba Lopez has been a successful licensed Real Estate Broker since 1981. She has facilitated the purchase, sale and exchange of more than 600 residential properties, ranging from single-family homes to multiple-unit rental properties.
Alba has helped hundreds of families buy their first home, sell an existing home or move up to a larger property in San Mateo, San Francisco, Burlingame, Redwood City and other Bay Area communities.
Special Expertise: Home Financing and Seniors
Trained in financial planning as well as real estate brokerage and sales, Alba is expert at financing real estate transfers. She has helped many small investors increase their wealth through the 1031 tax-deferred exchange process. This allows owners to sell rental units and move up to larger properties or down to smaller ones without paying capital gains tax on the properties sold. Taxes are deferred, allowing the full value of the sold property to be applied to the purchase of the new one.
Alba is specially trained in helping seniors find retirement, assisted living, or nursing homes. She can help arrange for reverse mortgages and other provisions of use to seniors.
Alba’s passion for real estate, her hard work ethic and her experience and education make her someone who always over delivers on her promises. Fluent in Spanish as well as English, she is an award-winning realtor who makes sales at the best-possible terms for clients.
