In 2017 I enjoyed helping clients buy and sell a variety of homes in the East Bay. I’m looking forward to another year of helping my wonderfully diverse real estate family!

Inventory traditionally picks up after Superbowl and the early Spring market is a great time to get started and prepare for a move.

I’m  happy to meet prospective clients , discuss options and put together a plan!

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

So many lovely neighborhoods in the East Bay!

I worked with many delightful clients in 2012 helping them sell or purchase in a wide variety of price ranges and neighborhoods.

From the urban hub near Lake Merritt or downtown Berkeley to treelined vistas and panoramic views in the hills there is something for everyone.

For those who are looking to sell in 2013, buyers are eagerly awaiting new inventory.

I’d love to hear from you if you’re considering selling or buying this year!

 According to current data two thirds of Millennials (born 1981-2000) say living in a walkable community is important, and they will pay more for what I call “the latte factor!” . In fact, the overall trend with all age groups in the EastBay is a preference for the car-free lifestyle . Walkable neighborhoods provide a desirable quality of life and data suggest that residents of these neighborhoods are happier, healthier and more likely to volunteer in their communities.

I recently worked with two different buyers who were looking to purchase in an urban area with good walkability. One buyer purchased a super 2 bedroom condo in the Rockridge area of Oakland; it’s a reasonable walk to Rockridge BART and all the amenities of College Avenue.

The second buyer was downsizing from a house in San Francisco, and looked for several months at quieter neighborhoods in Berkeley. Eventually my client realized the sleepy streets were not for him, and he still needed that urban vibe! He purchased a home on a busier Berkeley street , close to Whole Foods and the Elmwood shopping area.

Both buyers prioritized access to transport and resources.
