What our clients have to say
"Every once in a while we still have to pinch ourselves to remind us that this is real. We are so happy in our new home. Piedmont is wonderful. It still amazes us that Robinson sold so quickly. We appreciate everything Carla did from the early advice and punch lists to calming us during the escrow process."

"The thought of hiring a realtor made me go straight to the vodka cabinet. I just did not want to do it. I didn't want to interview anyone. I hate being sold.They are going to make me do so much stuff. Or bother me with emails. Or pressure me. Or grow tired of me. Or never go away. Or go away too fast. But, unless I wanted to continue living in a 2 bed, 1 bath with four family members and a monster dumb dog, we had to sell our place. And by the time I turned around, it seems, they had done just that. While my life was as busy as ever with work, kids, etc, etc, quietly, in the background, two lovely women were selling our home for TOP dollar. And doing it all perfectly. And quickly. And adding almost zero percent stress to my already hectic life. Worth every penny."

SUPERB NEGOTIATION SKILLS
"My husband and I have had the fortunate opportunity of purchasing and selling homes with Maria. She is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and possesses superb marketing and negotiation skills. She was not only able to secure multiple offers but was able to sell our home far above asking price in a down-turning market."
- Kate and Tarik | Buyers + Sellers in Oakland
"Maria has helped us with both the purchase and sale of 4 properties; we have been amazed with the level of service she offers. Maria is knowledgeable, ethical, and goes that extra mile. When challenging situations arise, Maria comes to the rescue with creative solutions. Detail oriented, quality obsessed, and totally committed!"

RESPONSIVE AND PROACTIVE
“My wife and I just sold our house with Anita and could not be happier. We made the decision to sell it shortly before moving out of the area and knew that we could not be hands-on sellers from afar. Anita took care of absolutely everything and made it incredibly easy for us. Her guidance was spot on in terms of maximizing value based on timing and list price. Anita was always forthcoming in her advice and she was not just responsive but proactive. We are so thankful to have worked with Anita and would give her our highest recommendation. She is the best!”
- Jack and Diane | Sellers in Oakland
WE COULD NOT IMAGINE A BETTER AGENT
“When we started working with Anita we were first time home buyers, nervous about entering a tumultuous and competitive market. Anita kindly guided us through that process - educating us on the process, pointing us in the right direction, giving us incredibly good advice, and helping us land a fantastic deal. And in the years since that purchase, she always kept in touch. She referred us to several amazing contractors as we made improvements to the house. At every step of the way, Anita was amazing to work with...so amazing that we referred her to 4 friends who also successfully purchased homes with her.
So when it came time to sell our home 6 years later we naturally reached out to Anita for her help. She was even better than before! She helped us prep our house for sale (including overseeing a kitchen remodel) and we ended up with a tremendous result. Her advice at every stage of the process was spot on. We could not imagine a better agent.”

CAN’T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS
“Can't say enough good things about Anita. Anita sent us great options week after week, talked with us at length about what was probable and possible, and helped us expand our search to other options and cities as time went on. She has an extremely accurate sense of what homes in this market will go for, as well as what's a fair and reasonable offer. At every turn she steered us right, and we ended up closing on a place that's perfect for our family and also has room to expand. Highly recommend!”
