“Excel Realty and Mortgage provides opportunities beyond my expectations to utilize my strengths and talents. Excel encourages their agents to be creative and approachable. It is such a relief to work for a mentor I believe in, and amongst peers who are passionate about their work. We are one team always learning from each other and enjoying while doing so.

"When I interviewed with the Broker/Owner Shawnacy Nauroth I was able to see for myself what a great personality he has, which helped me better understand Excel Realty as a company. He is patient, flexible, business savvy and simply just a great guy! I feel a wonderful sense of independence at Excel Realty and at the same time, even though I have 12 years of experience in the business, Excel Realty’s staff is always available to support me in any way."

“I love Excel Realty, the broker is always available and the company is structured to make the agents succeed and not present obstacles. I’m so thankful for making the jump to this exciting, elite, full service company”
Jamil Niazi, REALTOR®
“My experience working with Excel Realty has been really wonderful. Excel gives me the freedom to run my own business and just enough support to know that I won’t fail. I love the flexibility I have. I can pursue real estate sales and / or manage mortgage loans for my clients, all with a low flat rate per transaction. Excel’s business approach with its agents is warm and inviting. I strongly recommend, especially if you work with a large national agency, to consider moving over to a locally focused boutique environment, where you have more control over the success of your real estate business”.
David Gagne, REALTOR®
“Before I became a part of Excel Realty, I researched and considered many brokerages in the area. I am very happy with my decision to work with such a strong group of professionals. For me, the combination of the experienced leadership, relaxed attitude, ability to do loans and agressive commision structure made my choice easy! Thank you John!”
Mike Morris, REALTOR®

“After doing some searching, I have found Excel Realty and Mortgage to be the ideal professional organization with the integrity, support, and flexibility that allow me to pursue my individual business plan.”
Brandon Bowers, REALTOR®
“Excel Realty and Mortgage is just the company I’ve been looking for. The support is there when I need it, and the opportunity to do mortgages as well is great. Paying a low flat fee rather than a large piece of my commission allows me to be more competitive with my commission rate and buyer incentives. I was able to make a quick start with Excel without a long list of additional hidden fees that other companies charge to do business with them.”
Michael B. Moeller, REALTOR®
“I’m relatively new to the Real Estate industry but have worked with three different companies before coming to Excel Realty & Mortgage. What I find at Excel, are proven professionals who continue to thrive in real estate regardless of the market conditions. My goal is to go from part-time to full-time in real estate. I believe that I can do it with Excel!”
Michael Mitchell, REALTOR®
“I appreciate the simplicity of the pay structure. No hidden “unknowns” to jump out and bite us after we signed on. I appreciate the broker John Robison. He has been available when I needed questions answered or to discuss matters. John has displayed honesty and integrity which is rare in these times. Excel Realty and Mortgage is a great company to work with. In my mind the “Excel” is short for “Excellent”. “
Anita Ursua, REALTOR®
“Shawnacy and Nick went above and beyond to get us into our new home. The competitive world of Bay Area real estate is tough enough. Having a team like Excel behind us made the process reassuring and calming. They were knowledgeable, informative, and patient – no question was too small and no deadline was unmet. Thank you!”
Julie H. – San Francisco, CA
“Thank you Excel Realty and Mortgage (special shout out to Shawnacy and Louisa) for making our very first home purchase less stressful than we anticipated! We knew very little about real estate when we began the process and we are very grateful for all the time and effort Shawnacy and Louisa put into guiding us through our entire home-buying experience. We would HIGHLY recommend Excel Realty and Mortgage to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!”
Tricia M. – Livermore, CA
“Shawnacy has an excellent online system, attentive and professional appraisers, professional colleagues like Nick assisting, but most importantly, a relationship with a range of lenders to make great deals happen, even with unique circumstances and portfolios. He’s a very special banker.”
Paul M. – Mill Valley, CA
I had a positive experience with Excel. Bruno, who handled my loan to purchase my new home, was knowledgeable and professional throughout the process and kept me informed. We closed within 30 days. I would not hesitate to recommend Excel.
Ora A. – Hercules, CA
I’ve worked for the larger corporate brokers and then a small 2-person brokerage and can honestly say I have no reason to ever change again. Excel Realty allows me to focus on my business at my pace and allows me to work from my home office while still giving me one of the best locations in our downtown Pleasanton office to meet with clients as needed. I will say that my broker Shawnacy Nauroth has exceeded my expectations and is always available to assist me in dealing with those bizarre circumstances that seem to be common place in this crazy market we’ve been in. He’s supportive of helping me grow my business and has taken the time to sit down and strategize the best business plan for me. Aside from all of this, the best part of all is Excel Realty as a brokerage allows you to earn at your fullest potential from day 1 and I APPRECIATE that the most!
Ashli H. – Pleasanton, CA
Working with Shawnacy and Nick couldn’t have been more efficient. They made sure from Day 1 that my wife and I were updated and informed at every step of our financing stages making sure we understood our options that would best suit us. At the end, we were very surprised at how quick and seamless the process went and are very happy we decided to choose Excel Realty. They worked for us and did everything possible to make sure we got what we wanted while accommodating our busy schedules. Thank you again Shawnacy and Nick.
Chris S. – Dublin, CA
I’d really like to thank Shawnacy Nauroth and his team, especially Nick Mineo for the great job they did on my recent loan. Excel Realty & Mortgage had many loan programs to choose from great rates as well.
Kristi M. – Oakland, CA
I normally do not YELP often, but had to for Excel Realty & Mortgage. My wife and I were first time home buyers and we ran into a couple of last minute bumps and luckily we met Nick Mineo and Shawnacy! They were able to save the day under a tight deadline and got us into our home! Both were amazing to work with and really went the extra mile to ensure we were all set. Nick made himself available at all times and provided a lot of reassurance throughout the process. A lot of people talk a big game, but these guys back it up! I will definitely go back to them for my next purchase or refi! Thank you both!!!!
Haseeb W. – Pleasant Hill, CA
Worked with Excel and Nick Mineo for my mortgage on a recent purchase and everything went great! Nick was able to help me out with figuring out the best way to proceed when I had any questions regarding financing, and also helped to coordinate a lot of stuff between myself, the seller, and the escrow company. Would definitely recommend!
Chris L. – Los Angeles, CA
“There are not enough great words to express how happy we were working with Nick Mineo. First, he has the patience of Job! Second, he made everything really easy for us, even when it looked like it might not be. If you are buying a home, DO NOT HESITATE to go through Nick. You will be in great hands every step of the way. Towards the end of our closing my credit score got better and Nick jumped us up to the next tier in lender credits and reduced our interest rate, even after we locked. I really can’t express how wonderful the experience was. Thank you Nick for your exceptional customer service and for helping us get through this complicated probate sale. Gina and Charles W.”
Gina W. – San Fernando Valley, CA
“This review is for Mike Gabrielson…the best real estate agent ever! He’s worked with us in purchasing our very first home, to selling that home and now purchasing our dream home. our home sold in one weekend way over asking price and we found our dream home the first day out looking – and with Mike’s strategies we were able to get the accepted offer (competing with 7 other offers). we’ll be closing in less than 30 days! our kids are SUPER excited! If you’re looking for an honest real estate agent who knows what he’s talking about, ask for him. thank you Mike!!! -the Lazo Fam Bam!”
Nikki L. – San Jose, CA
“Corey and John Mitchel from Excel Realty were absolutely fantastic! They were our realtors for both our house purchase in San Ramon and our home sale in Dublin. They are very knowledgeable, responsive, efficient, and friendly. They found us a home in San Ramon quickly and secured us the house in bidding. Regarding the Dublin house sale, they did a fantastic job preparing the house for sale — including staging it as part of their service. We got 4 fantastic offers in four days all above asking. Having knowledgeable representation from a realtor is key to maximizing sale price and Corey and John certainly excel at it”
Buyer – San Ramon, CA
“I was referred to Excel Realty & Mortgage by a friend and contacted them to see if they were refinance competitive. I compared quotes with big names and the very best internet rates. To my surprise, Excel had the best rate available! My wife and I committed with Excel. Throughout the refinance process, Nick Mineo, answered questions clearly which showed us that he was an experienced refinance officer with prudent guidance. He gathered all documents ahead of time and communicated the refinance process in a timely manner. With such a great rate, we prepared ourselves for upcoming surprises, but everything moved smoothly! For the great rates and excellent customer service, we would recommend Excel to anyone interested in a home refinance. Thanks, Nick and Shawnacy!”
K.B. – San Ramon, CA

Thank you Team Excel Realty. You guys are awesome!! Shawnacy, Louisa and Nick it has always been a wonderful experience working with you all. Very professional and knowledgeable in the whole process of getting us into our dream house.

You have exceeded our expectations by sending us the beautiful canvas artwork for my daughter’s room and also the family name printed on the canvas we installed at the entry door. It looks great! Thank you again for making this all happen and we are looking forward now on our future investments with you guys:) The Kumar family.
Suneel K. – Sacramento, CA
I’m a first time home buyer, and my loan was a bit complicated then other people, I was referred by my agent to contact Excel Realty & Mortgage. Shawnacy and his team did a great job to get my loan approved on time. If you are shopping for a mortgage and want to make sure you are finding some one with expertise. Excel Realty & Mortgage is a good choice.

Ashli Hudson, REALTOR®
Dear Shawnacy, Thank you so much for helping me out on this one. I was going back and forth with the wholesale underwriter trying to figure why she countered the loan. Once I got to the bottom of it, I was able to show her that her numbers were not correct, and she agreed to make the changes. That was earlier in the day. I just happened to check the updated LE that was emailed to the borrower and to my dismay no changes had been made. It was still incorrect, and it was ugly. The underwriter was gone for the day, so I immediately sent an email to you asking for your help before the borrower accessed the updated LE. You got involved and I got a call within the hour expediting a new, and most importantly, corrected LE. That would never have happened without your involvement, so again thank you! Have a great evening,”
Cate Pacheco, Loan Officer
