πŸ“£ Our wonderful clients had dreamed about escaping the City and finding a big, beautiful home in a fabulous neighborhood with a spacious backyard where they could host friends for great parties or just relax in their own private sanctuary. Having decided the time for that dream home was NOW, we got to work to identify homes (both on the market and yet to hit the market) that fit our clients' wish list. Once we found that dream home, we leveraged our extensive market data, sales experience, and industry relationships to understand the competition and craft an offer at a fair price that put our clients ahead of the other potential buyers competing for this amazing home.

πŸ“ So did these strategic efforts pay off? You bet they did as our clients secured the home of their dreams at a great price AND they were in contract within 3 weeks of starting their home search!

πŸ’Έ The East Bay is a very competitive buyers market. Having a skilled and experienced agent matters if you want to get ahead of the competition and secure the home of your dreams at a reasonable price. We'd love to help you find your place in the world, give us a ring!

Happy Saturday! As expected, the volume of homes on the market is really starting to ramp up. I expect we'll see volume continue to grow drastically as we move further into January and the heart of the Spring buying season.

Happy New Year! πŸŽ†πŸŽŠπŸŽ‡ I hope you all were able to enjoy a wonderful holiday and some nice downtime over the last few weeks. This weekend marks the opening of the Winter/Spring buying season. There is a relatively modest amount of open homes this weekend, but we should see the volume of listed homes swell significantly as we move into January. If you are planning to buy in the first half of the year, now is the time to get your preparations complete (lending arranged, pre-approvals issued, etc.) and begin your search.

Speaking of mortgage lenders, it's a great time to be a buyer as your money is going further than it ever has before. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.72% during the week ending Jan. 2, down two basis points from the previous week. The 15-year fixed-rate mortgage fell three basis points to an average of 3.16%. The 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage, meanwhile, increased one basis point to an average of 3.46%. Overall, mortgage rates started off 2020 roughly 80 basis points lower than they were at the start of 2019. (CNBC)

If you don't yet have a mortgage lender, I'm happy to provide a list of highly-recommended local lenders that you can contact. Happy shopping!

Happy Saturday! Even though we're in the holiday season, market activity is still happening. Sometimes this is the best time for real estate. πŸ”‘πŸ‘ 200+ homes are open this weekend just waiting for new owners!

Speaking of the holiday season, I just love holiday lights and this time of year brings out some fantastic displays around town. If you want a little holiday inspiration, check out two of my favorites:

πŸŽ„ Alameda's Candy Cane Lane (http://bit.ly/2LPAOer) - The Christmas spirit comes to life on this lively, lit-up block in Alameda that has the whole package: beautiful lights, friendly neighbors and people strolling galoreβ€”and it's been going on since 1938!

πŸŽ„ ZooLights at the Oakland Zoo (http://bit.ly/2PJvJWe) - ZooLights is a festival of hundreds of thousands of sparkling lights that illuminate the Zoo and night sky to celebrate a holiday tradition in Oakland. Dozens of colorfully lit animal-themed structures are situated throughout the Zoo for families to enjoy.

πŸ“£ Our clients were keen to secure the best price for their 2-Bed, 2-Bath 1297 square foot home in Oakland's Maxwell Park neighborhood. This wonderful home had seen kids grow up and seasons change, and was understandably due for a refresh to return to its original glory. Knowing that the right preparation is critical to achieving a premium sale, our clients were eager to follow our recommendation for the new paint, cosmetic repairs, refinished flooring, landscaping, and tasteful staging needed to polish this jewel to its brightest luster. But while we were all confident that these preparation costs would pay for themselves and then some when they yielded a premium sales price, our clients were understandably not eager to write a check upfront to pay for these essential services. At Compass, this is not a problem! Our Compass Concierge program covers the upfront costs for sale preparation (from staging to home improvements, and a long list of other services), and allows our clients to simply have the costs deducted from their final sales proceeds. No need to write a check for these services, and there are no hidden fees or interest charged, ever.

πŸ“ So did these market preparation efforts pay off? You bet they did as our sellers received multiple offers and secured a sales price of $81,000 over our list price! Listed at $699,000, Sold for $780,000!

πŸ’Έ Having a skilled and experienced agent matters if you want to maximize the return on your most important investment. The market is still hot. If you are interested in learning about the value of your home or other great buying opportunities in the area, give us a ring!

Our Story

Owning a home is one of the greatest joys in life. The feeling of homeownership creates a foundation of comfort and security where all things can thrive. I help people buy and sell homes because it allows me to be a part of the process to offer guidance and support on one of the most important decisions that can be made. My purpose in life is to help others achieve their dreams, and I am a Realtor because it helps me to realize my purpose.

When I first sit down with my clients, I listen to what they have to say. I help them determine what their motivations are in buying their home or selling their existing home which provides guidance to develop a plan to meet their unique needs. If I am working with a home seller, I use my unique talents that have been crafted over 25 years in sales and marketing to effectively market their home so that it shines to its brightest potential and reaches the widest audience. If I'm working with a home buyer, I help them to figure out what type of home would best meet their needs and then determine which neighborhoods are most suitable based on how much they would like to spend. I am a local expert. I know the neighborhoods and what they have to offer. Often times where the journey starts is not where it ends.

In 2017 I helped 26 people buy and sell a home. I am ranked among the top 5% of agents in my market. I am a member of the Top Agents Network which represents the top 10% of agents Nationwide. The homes that I list for sale have sale prices considerably higher than expectations. Home buyers that I work with often are getting their offers accepted on the first try. These things happen because of my unique ability to develop key strategies to help my clients achieve and often surpass their goals.

If you are considering buying or selling a home give me a call or send me a note. I would love to be a part of your process and add you to my long list of very happy clients!
