Kris R.

It is not possible for me to express in words how grateful I am to the Bonafede Team Compass Realty for getting our home sold! Not only did our house sell without any delay, they worked tirelessly to ensure it was a seamless process even as world events unfolded and changed on a daily basis due to the “Shelter in Place” that we are all experiencing. Laura, Brian, Dina and Steve never backed down from helping us figure out how to work things out as the Title Company went to working remotely, as the County Recorders Office closed then went to e-filings, and as potential buyers tried to back out of deals. The team was able to use their connections to keep contractors working and to keep all work progressing so everyone involved could meet contract deadlines.

I have had the honor of using the Bonafede team more than once over the years, once with Laura and then with Steve. Not only were the transactions handled flawlessly, the communication throughout the process was amazing. I knew everything that was happening at every step of the transactions, but the part I liked the best was that they didn't pull any punches and were honest about all aspects of the sale. You won't find a team more honest about the worth of your property and the market than the Bonafede Team. The patience they showed when looking for my first house made the whole search very comfortable with no pressure to make a rash decision. They not only want their clients happy, they want their clients happy for life. Word of mouth is the best recommendation and most solid way you can build any business and I believe the Bonafede team has built their business this way. Last but not least is the way this team supports their local business and charities. Their support of the Autism tree foundation in the Santa Clara County is literally second to none and their support of local high schools and causes is pretty amazing. I highly recommend the Bonafede team for all your real estate needs!


Dina Bonafede and her team are true real estate professionals. While I loved my home which had just become too big for one person I was aware that it had some unique features that meant it wouldn't appeal to everyone looking for a home in the Cupertino school district for example a spiral staircase. Dina brought in diverse members of her team to give us their perspective. Working together we created a welcoming environment for potential buyers without expensive "staging". Through an active dialogue, we identified and overcame potential objections. Dina got the property into contract within two weeks of the first "test-the-market" open house. She negotiated a good deal for both the buyer and myself. I am convinced Dina and her team got every possible dollar of value out of the property. Candidly, I was not the easiest client to work with more used to giving rather than getting advice. Most importantly, in Dina Bonafede I found so much more than a Realtor. I've made a wonderful new friend the rarest of outcomes in Silicon Valley.

I met Dina and Brian of The Bonafede Team in August 2020 to help us to sell our property in San Jose. Our escrow is closing today 9/30/2020. During my several years of experience with different realtors to sell and purchase different properties, I have never seen such professionalism, dedicated, knowledgeable, accommodating, kind, helpful, and honest couple and team. We live in southern California and they helped us for painting, and some small repairs of our property in San Jose, in a great timeline. Their caring and taking care of our property and great communication of any event is outstanding. We need them to find a property for us in southern California, but it is not practical. Otherwise, we would give them full authority to perform. We highly recommend Dina and Briana to sell or purchase any kind of property for anyone, especially new buyers who can learn from these fellows for life time. Thanks again and again Dina and Brian.

This is coming from a lot of experience of getting real estate communications for decades whether you are in the place to buy or sell a home does not matter. I have gotten such consistently useful, practical, concise and helpful information for living from Dina and the Bonafede group. Really: home/personal organization how tos, key tax laws change summary (better than what my accountant sent out), home improvement tips and more. They are actually quite good even with all the information available now days. Its like a little gentle push/well put reminder to expect and have more for myself. Plus every few months they are hosting or sponsoring some event or party (they go all out) so pretty much a no brainer to join their mailing list. I have never recommended a email/mail list before but they've proven themselves to me for more than a year.


Laura Odom and the Bonafede Team did an excellent job with the sale of my home. They were able to achieve a sale price of over $100,00 above the price that several other realtors told me I should expect the home to sell in this market. The sale price was well over the highest price for which my model had previously sold. In addition, their marketing achieved 4x the views on Zillow in a week as a prior listing for the home achieved in 2014. I will use Laura and the Bonafede Team for my future real estate needs and whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home in the San Jose and surrounding community areas.

Stephen C.

My family was ready to move to a new home and Steve and his team helped us through the process as smoothly as possible. He understood what we wanted, and most importantly, what we didn't want. Once we found the house, he moved fast negotiating with the seller and got us a great deal. Shortly afterwards, Steve sold an investment property for us and he handled all aspects of the necessary remodeling in order to get us top dollar. His team is honest and responsive and I would not hesitate to use their services again for my family's real estate needs.

Riccardo I.

We were in great hands with the Bonafede team. We had a lot of hurdles to overcome. We had a VA loan which was a liability in a competitive market. We also were in the middle of a pandemic, which had its own obstacles. Laura and Steve worked tirelessly, searching for our new home. They were very patient with us and honest about the process. Now, six months later, we still cannot believe we were able to get the home of our dreams. We would definitely recommend them and we hope to refer others.

As a young adult, the idea of purchasing my first home was overwhelming and seemed impossible! The Bonafede Team possesses an abundance of knowledge in every aspect of the industry; from financial break down, loans, timelines, what to expect and more. They really took their time in educating me along the way as well as helped me find my dream home. They are area experts and truly know what they are talking about. Overall, I genuinely enjoy seeing them out in the community. They do it all.

The Bonafede Team really knows their stuff. They are absolutely terrific to work with, great communicators and really go out of their way to make sure clients are happy. I've known Dina and Brian Bonafede for 5 years. They work hard to understand what clients need and are always available to talk through questions and concerns. They're just great people who really want to do an outstanding job for their clients. If you need a realtor, you can not do better than the Bonafede Team.
