Buying a home is a lot like traveling to a new and exciting place. But would you rather go down the common, well-worn path of all the other tourists. . .or would you rather have an expert guide who will show you the hidden gems; who knows the overlooked neighborhoods where you’ll find the best restaurants, fabulous shopping, fun and interesting things to do, as well as where to find that special something you’re looking for.
I’ve done a lot of traveling in my life. I’ve also bought and sold a few houses of my own, not to mention the hundreds of transactions I’ve helped facilitate in my career as a realtor. And one of the things I enjoy the most is sharing with my clients the hidden gems of the East Bay, those lovely neighborhoods in Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, Alameda, Albany and El Cerrito that offer lifestyles that suit their tastes.
Whether they’re a couple starting out, a young family, a growing family, single, divorced, same-sex couples, upsizing or downsizing, I know details about this area – and about the homes themselves – that you won’t find on internet searches, walk scores, school rankings or popular review sites.
My knowledge of those neighborhoods also benefits my listing clients as I help them navigate a turbulent market, negotiate the best terms, and keep their best interests in mind at all times.
Organized, efficient, discreet and motivated, with quality resources at my fingertips, I’m ready to help you get started when you’re ready to make a move.
