Unlike traditional brokerages, sellers can try Aalto without signing a contract as they generate interest from buyers. This leads to less stress and more savings than the traditional process. Get started today.
Aalto has Advisors, not agents. Our Advisor team works alongside homeowners and buyers through every step of the process. Advisors have a wealth of local experience and knowledge to address any needs you may have.
Aalto is a licensed broker in the state of California (DRE 02062727) and Aalto Advisors are all licensed salespersons.
Please note: some buyers do bring 3rd party agents into their Aalto transaction for assistance. In these instances, Aalto Advisors partner with these agents to service both parties.
Aalto strictly follows all CDC and DRE guidelines at showings. We offer no contact showings with all doors open and lights turned on to ensure minimal contact is required. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Virtual staging uses cutting-edge digital tools to remove and add furniture to a photograph of your home. Virtual home staging can also be used to declutter photographs, allowing you to showcase your home without cleaning or moving out.
Virtual staging is free for any Aalto Home Profile - just ask your Advisor.
If desired, an Aalto representative can be present at all tour. In order to easily facilitate tours, Aalto may suggest that you allow licensed agents to show the home without an Aalto representative present.
In traditional real estate, homes are typically opened up to anyone and everyone during tours and open houses. Sellers experience people coming into their home that are not actually able to purchase it. Aalto changes all this.
At Aalto, we give sellers the option to share only with pre-approved or cash buyers so that they can focus on spending their time and energy with buyers who are serious about making an offer.
The fastest way to learn more about a home is to either message the seller on the Home Profile or contact the associated Advisor. The name and contact information of the Advisor can also be found on the Home Profile.
