When it comes to sell your home, it can get really stressful but thankfully I was referred to Candy Bruno, a realtor with Alliance manufacture homes. She was recommended by one of our neighbors and honestly, I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Candy Bruno. We knew we were getting a great person on our side, but she surpassed our expectations. She sold my home before it was even listed. Her professionalism showed upon her first visit, as soon as she went in, she left us with a list of tasks to focus and prepare our home to show. During the whole selling process Candy was extremely responsive and very informative. Once again, I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor than Candy Bruno.

I would definitely highly recommend Alliance to anyone buying or selling a mobile home, as well as their service team, they rock!
To give some context, I first purchased a very old metal mobile home with low space rent with plans to immediately trade-in for a nice new one, which we did, we built the nicest 4 bedroom, 2 bath we could spec out, then life got turned upside down for all of us and I ended up needing to sell the beautiful new one.
I could not have done this without Candy Bruno’s help, not only did she guide me through the entire trade-in process but she called me and enlightened me to the recent crazy house market and interest rate hike coming! We teamed up and staged it for a showing as fast as possible!!! We were able to sell it for over asking price, right as the interest rates began to spike. This was not luck, this was Candy being open and transparent about the market, the process and timing, which I acted on as fast as I could.
If it wasn’t for her, I would be stuck in that home and unable to move on with the next phase of my life, I am forever grateful.

We had the pleasure of working with Candy to buy and sell our manufactured home at Adobe Wells #231. She is quite simply the best in the business and did a fantastic job walking us through the process on both sides. She was always responsive to field any questions we had, and she worked efficiently to make sure the process was as stress-free as possible. Not only that, but she truly took the time to understand our unique concerns and walk us through multiple options in a way that felt collaborative. She is a great communicator and gave helpful advice in a timely manner when negotiating as our buyer agent. As our selling agent, I truly felt like she did everything she could to get us the best deal, even with an uncertain market. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell their home, and I would eagerly work with her again in a heartbeat should we return to the area!

Candy Bruno’s vast experience with buying and selling manufactured homes proved instrumental in our process. Her patience was appreciated as we transitioned my mother to a new living arrangement and moved her belongings out. We had piece of mind as she walked us through the steps and pointed out things to prepare for and keep in mind. Sometimes there are surprises along the way- often unique to mobile homes- so it’s critical to have a listing agent like Candy that specializes in this area. There was nothing Candy hadn’t seen before- she is an expert and always one step ahead! We exceeded our closing goals ahead of schedule thanks to all her hard work for us.

I am very happy with Candy’s very professional and deeper level of real estate knowledge. She understood what customers needed. Her response was always prompt with detailed explanations. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer her as an excellent real estate representative.

I could not be more pleased with the performance of Candy Bruno as the listing agent who sold my home. She was extremely professional and her communication skilled could not have been any better. She made the whole process easier than I could ever have dreamed of. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and professional listing agent. In short I cannot say enough positive things about Candy as my listing agent.
With great appreciation,

We just closed our home purchase and we could not be any happier and content! This is our first home purchase and we now have a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood. The entire process was smooth and organized. All these, we have to give credit to our agent, Candy Bruno. We would like to say since day 1 we met Candy, she was very professional. She showed us all the options before we arrived on our decision of finally choosing a house to purchase. Through the process, Candy would give us regular updates, and the timeline she provided were all on point. Most importantly, we felt the great care Candy has provided to us as her clients. Thank you Candy for helping us fulfill one of our life goals!

We have been working with Candy Bruno now for about 2.5 months and she has been nothing short of amazing! She has really been there for my family and I every step of the way and then some. She helped us find our dream home and we couldn’t be happier with all of help, guidance, and recommendations she has given us. We would refer any of our friends and family to her.

When my Mom, Bev McClure decided to purchase a modular home, I was particularly drawn to the units updated designs as well as the Casa de Amigos park. When I expressed my interest to follow in her footsteps, she referred me to her agent, Candy Bruno with high praise. Once I confirmed that I was ready to begin looking for the perfect unit for me, she was on a mission and did not disappoint. Candy walked me through the entire process of the escrow from day one. It has been many years since I’ve owned property, so her help with each step was essential. After the close of escrow, I was sure to let her know that I would need her assistance in 2019 to help my daughter find her ‘perfect’ home as well!
Thank you, Candy! I love my new home, you are absolutely the best!

After living in the same single family home in San Jose for 42 years, I felt the need to make a change to a smaller residence. I knew it was time to scale down and look for a smaller, single level home and without inside stairs.
My Daughter, Denelle and her Husband Paul lived in a modular home in Casa de Amigos, Sunnyvale, California. Over time, he had many years of ownership experience with mobile and modular homes. Beings I had owned only 3 single family homes over the past 60 years, I started questioning him about details of which I had no knowledge relating to mobile park ownership. My questions had to do with present sales price, lot rent, utilities, several technical items, etc. He suggested that I contact his Agent that he had when he purchased his Modular Home in Case de Amigos.
When I contacted Candy Bruno at Alliance Manufactured Homes, she invited me to come to her office where she could show me plans for a new Modular Home that would be ready for occupancy in a few months. By this time, she had my attention.
My forty plus employed years included Real Estate Sales and also new development tracks of homes. I had just a little apprehension with having no experience with either, Mobile or Modular Homes, but I was interested when Candy invited me to go to her office. I was at ease with her from the moment we met, as well as after leaving her office. Our appointment set me in my course to sell my home in San Jose and purchasing a new Modular Home of which Candy showed me Plans and Finishes. The home would be located on a vacant lot in Casa de Amigos.
Candy was very diligent with keeping me on schedule for the ultimate sale of my San Jose property and as well as the purchase of my new home. She also kept close phone contact with directing me and she also conferred with my agent that was handling the sale of my San Jose property. Together, they were successful with closing both escrows within one day of each other.
Family interest in Mobil / Modular Home ownership and my referral of my Daughter, Deb to Candy Bruno resulted in her purchasing a home in July. So, she is now my neighbor, on the same street and just 12 homes between us. It does not stop there.
Candy Bruno, a very personable and knowledgeable Agent, has been working with Deb’s Daughter, Christa, (my Grand Daughter) to purchase a home in 2019. Let’s see… that would total 4 homes of family that purchased in Casa de Amigos, and we have more!

I can’t say enough how well I was treated during my home search process. Frustrated from the out of control house market, I randomly looked at a mobile home at an open house where I was lucky enough to meet Candy Bruno who was hosting the event. She was super patient with me, I had no knowledge of the mobile home market and industry. She guided me though all the pro & cons, new vs. old, financing options, trade-in option, etc. This was all done with no pressure from her or the Alliance management team. The entire process was handled with complete professionalism. She helped me find the perfect home for my current budget in an area I am happy to call home!
I would highly recommend Alliance & Candy to a friend and look forward to the trade-in program!
I mean it all, thanks for the help, HUGE HUG!!!!

Candy Bruno and Alliance,
Jay and I can not express how grateful we are for our new brand new home. We have lived in Mountain View for 28 years never having to opportunity to be home owners. In our last rental of 23 years we were asked to move out of our duplex at the beginning of April so our landlords son could move in. We were in shock. We started looking for rentals at first, but the rentals were over 2,000$ a month so my parents willingly decided to give us some money for a down payment on a townhouse or condo. We found out how crazy the market was and we were about to give up on owning until I ran across a manufactured home that I saw on Zillow that was sold by Alliance.I called the realtor, Candy Bruno, and she was amazing. She answered all my questions and was as excited about the possibility as I was. We set up an appointment for the next day.
When my husband came home from house and rental searching he looked weary. I told him I thought I found an answer to our prayers. I had him come to the computer to look at the pictures and he said this looks to good to be true, but I will go and take a look at it. He then warned me, “Don’t think I am going to put any money down on this. I will need to take a few days to think about it.” Well as soon as Candy brought us through the front door it only took him 15 minutes to let us know that he wanted to do the paperwork to buy the home. We were suppose to be vacated out of our rental on May 12th and that was the day we closed escrow. It truly was a miracle. We could of never done it with the care and expertise of Candy and Laura. The people at Alliance are so hard working and such an advocate for their perspective buyers. I have not met any of the other realtors at Alliance, but if they have even half Candy’s work ethic it will be worth it. We love the Casa Amigos community and our new home. Every time I walk through our door I thank God and Alliance for the opportunity to live in such a quiet, safe, and homey community. We are recommending Alliance to all of our friends that may be looking to buy.

Thank you to Candy at Alliance for helping us buy our first home. We now have a place of our own to bring our bundle of joy home to in August. We love the community and are happy to call it home for our 6 year old and baby on the way. Our neighbors are so nice and we have already made friends around our little “neighborhood”. Candy really helped us through the process as this was our first time buying a home. We were not sure what to expect or what was expected of us but we were reassured and lead through the process with patience and professionalism. I have recommended Candy and Alliance to a couple friends and will continue to do so in the future when friends ask about our home.
Thank you, Alliance!
