Meet Sanctuary Real Estate

At Sanctuary Real Estate, we outperform with the utmost integrity — it’s who we are. We intend to add tremendous value and serve you well beyond your expectations through every interaction, recommendation, and step we take together.

Our agents consistently deliver multiple above-market offers for our sellers and, interestingly enough, below-market deals for our buyers. We leverage our Silicon Valley, statewide, and worldwide market expertise to set new trends (and new performance records); use the latest technology; and position you for top results. Simply put, sellers receive more, and buyers pay less when they work with Sanctuary Real Estate.

Our award-winning founder, Ed Dee, created our company to serve others with purpose and inspiration. But more than that, Sanctuary is designed to be your refuge from the hectic, competitive, and often crazy world we live in. We shoulder the stress of your transaction by asking the right questions, listening to your answers, courageously advocating for your interests, and handling every last detail.

When you buy or sell real estate, you’re making what can be life-changing, high-stakes decisions. We understand that, and we’re here to create an environment of calm so you can celebrate your next big adventure. After all, life’s not a dress rehearsal — it’s your only opportunity to deeply enjoy what you love.
