About Elizabeth "Liz" Machado

Elizabeth offers a professional and nurturing demeanor. She is often seen joking and laughing with her clients as she knows that the home buying and selling process is a stressful one. She enjoys helping families needing to buy or sell property ranging from a modest home or condominium to a residence fit for a large or extended family. First time home buyers are her passion. The greatest feeling is handing keys over to a homebuyer as they realize that dreams do come true.

A San Francisco native, born and raised in the South of Market area now known as SOMA, Elizabeth went to high school in the Mission and earned an AA degree in Criminology from City College of San Francisco and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University.

Elizabeth has lived in various parts of the Peninsula, from San Francisco to Foster City and between. She spent several years living in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved back after both parents passed away. She realized that her "heart" was in San Francisco with her family and friends.

Elizabeth has been in the real estate world since 2006, beginning her career with Figueroa Realty in Burlingame, California. Prior to that, she worked in retail for 15 years in Loss Prevention at Macy's and then as a Manager for 8 years with Macy's stores throughout Northern California and Nevada.

In 2013, she joined Realty ONE Group and with Figueroa, opened Realty ONE Group Alliance in the city of San Mateo. In July 2017, ROG Alliance closed its doors and Elizabeth is currently with Realty ONE Group Future in San Ramon and is happy as can be!

Liz knows that education and keeping yourself up to date in this business is essential. Elizabeth has several REALTOR designations and certifications that assist her every day so she is able to provide the superior service her clients deserve and need.

Liz Client Testimonials

Liz is an excellent realtor!

During our 1st home purchase, Liz had shown not only her in-depth knowledge about her job, but also her natural compassion, diligence, and happy demeanor throughout the difficult process that we had to deal together with the program that our family used. She was referred to me by my co-worker and I would not hesitate a bit to refer her to anybody. Keep up the awesome job, Ms. Liz and may our dear Lord Jesus bless you with good health, so that you may continue to help others. We deeply appreciate you stayed with us until the finish line!!!

- Grace and Alvin Bautista

Liz is the best! She is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I'm truly grateful and appreciative of all her time and support during the selling and buying process. Liz sold my house and when I was ready, she made sure I purchased a place that I love and excited to call home. She puts that extra effort to make sure she sells your place and finds one that best suits your needs. She's not only a dear friend who I love, but I'm also proud to call her my realtor!

My fiancé and I are first-time homeowners. We recently bought a home and Liz held our hand and walked us through the procedure from beginning to end. We had our first meeting with Liz and as soon as we sat down, we felt comfortable with her. She wanted to get to know us on a personal level which meant that she cared and didn't see us as just a business transaction. We had our hearts set to stay in the Peninsula. We knew it was a far stretch given the market conditions, but we wanted to see if it was possible. Liz immediately told us that it will be difficult and that we should consider the East Bay for our first home. "There's way more opportunity out there and I've had clients tell me that the commute to the city isn't as bad as you may think". We gave it some thought and decided we'd give the East Bay a chance by just "looking" to see if anything caught our eye. Liz showed us fixed-up property and property that needed fixing, to give us an idea in which direction we wanted to go. Did we want a property that was fixed up for us? Or did we want a property we want to fix up ourselves? We really appreciated her input since we knew nothing about the East Bay. There were a few times when we started to feel discouraged, but Liz with her great sense of humor picked us up with laughter and helped us get through it. After a few months of searching, we found a townhome and I remember telling Liz "THIS IS THE ONE!!" And, she made it happen. Liz worked hard to convince the sellers to choose our offer and it worked! Our offer got accepted!!! We were so happy!! Oh, and Liz has a Dream Team on her side too! She uses the same loan officer (Daniel Pryce at Supreme Lending) and escrow officer (Rachel Solidum at Fidelity National Title) for the majority of the transactions she works on and you can see that they all work well together. They worked around the clock to ensure everything went smoothly and that we would close on time. They were in constant contact and always made sure we were in the loop. I can't say enough good things about Liz and her Dream Team! If you ever need a Realtor, please think of Liz. She will not disappoint!!

I worked with Elizabeth "Liz" Machado at Realty One Group. We were first-time homebuyers trying to buy in the Bay Area. We were trying to get out before our lease ended. Liz took our wish list and really focused on what we wanted showing us properties that reflected our needs/wants. Because we were first-time homebuyers, Liz took the time to answer every question even if we asked it 3-4 times in different ways! She was very patient and thorough! When we found a house we really liked she helped determine the comps on the area and suggested an offer amount and other creative ways to make us competitive since the market was a seller's market and the Bay Area was being bought out by all-cash investors or other people who had conventional loans and more down payments! We only had an FHA loan with 3.5 % and it was feeling impossible to be competitive!!! Her suggestions and ideas were brilliant! The way she wrote the offer was excellent!! All at the same time- she is HILARIOUS!! Every step of the process was a setback in someway but Liz had a way to keep us motivated and assured us that it was just a normal part of the process. When I thought I was going to have an anxiety attack I would talk to Liz and she would remind me to breathe!! She worked her butt off for us and was on top of it all she had great communication and always kept us updated even if that meant we still had to wait. Which helped us to not wonder what was going on. Our first offer wasn't accepted. And our lease was up that we had to renew another 6 months. We decided we would just start the process in a few months again since we had to renew the lease. Well, 3 weeks later Liz contacted us and told us about a property that had become available & if we were interested in checking it out. When we did, we fell in love!! Liz even helped us to negotiate terms to break out of our lease and helped offer potential renters to take over!! The seller's agent from the beginning was rude and not very communicative. Liz had to work twice as hard to find things out but she did it. She was with us during our walkthroughs and home inspection. She even helped us with the resources to take care of all of that. Even when she wasn't feeling well... She was there when we needed her!! What Liz has taught us was the importance of character when choosing an agent! We previously worked with 2 other agents who just sucked!!! They never communicated!! Liz was all over it!! From texts, emails, to answer her phone at 9 pm!! She was there!! Liz is genuine! She cares and sees her work through!! I highly recommend her if you're looking for an agent!! Oh BTW... We got a house with an FHA offer on our SECOND offer in the BAY AREA!! That says it all!! You won't regret working with her I promise!

Liz is awesome! You tell her what you want in a home and she finds it for you. She won't stop searching until she knows and feels the moment. Liz will not rush you into making an offer on a property when there are more to look at which would be best to fit all your needs. Liz helped us find our dream home and continues to help my family in more ways than one. You will be 100% satisfied with Liz's assistance in your search or selling of a home.

Nancy Ayers

I recommend Liz, she's so awesome at what she does. She will go out of her way to make sure you're happy and satisfied. She helped us through every step of the way. She's very patient. And I love her sense of humor, when purchasing a home, it's nerve-wracking. you won't regret having Liz as your realtor.

To my dearest biggest and loving sister, whom I have been so blessed to have met Liz Machado on my freshman year at Mission high school in SF JROTC program. From a very frightened freshman you whipped me up good and stood up to give a voice of many #SF students on our "don't drink and drive campaign" w Mayor Feinstein; To having the patience only a saint would have to deal w the kind of real estate sale that I had in SF! No words can express my gratitude and my children! I can finally breathe and feel like the world is no longer my own personal burden to carry. I never felt what freedom meant until I went to vote today. You showed me what family really means. Thank YOU so much for all that you've done in the last year to sell my house in SF. We are now truly free to live our lives as we should! God Bless! For any of you who needs a realtor who is really on your side and will be honest and never take advantage of you. You must contact Liz @ Realty One Group Alliance she is worth it! We love you Roz, Andrew, Darah, David & Hyphy.

Liz is AWESOME! She is extremely patient, professional, knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond what is expected of her. Liz assisted us with selling my parent's property as well as selling a rental property. Liz made the selling process seamless and stress-free. I would highly recommend Liz for her services. You will not be disappointed!


I would recommend Elizabeth Machado and being your realtor. She works hard at what she does and understands your needs in a home. If you are a first time home buyer or been around the block, I would check her out first. You won't regret it.
