Laura And Doug S. sold a home in Montclair

Eileen and her team did a fantastic job representing us for the sale of our house in the Montclair hills. While I was hesitant to want to stage the house and move out for open houses, Eileen assured us it was the best option to get the best price and boy was she right! Eileen was also available to us at all times, and she definitely helped ease any nerves we may have had when those inevitable issues come up in the process of selling a house. We could not be happier with her and her team, and if we decide to buy again in the Bay Area, she will be the first call we will make! We highly recommend working with Eileen and her team because they are the best of the best! Laura & Doug Sutter

Isabelle G. sold a home in Redwood Heights

I sold my (beloved) house in Oakland in record time and for a much higher price than I expected. And I absolutely credit Eileens skills for this successful sale. From her files, she was able to pull the names of stagers, a sewer guy and a roofer who saved the day when they were needed. She also managed them for me, as I had no time to do that myself. On top of that, Eileen is a pleasure to deal with, a smart analyst of situations, and an island of calm and courtesy in the transactions tempest.

Beverley P. sold a home in Berkeley

My long-time rental in Berkeley was not the easiest to let go I donated it for tax purposes and that made it a complicated transaction with many details to watch. Eileen was careful with all the detail One of Eileens strengths is that she recognized whats needed both from a task perspective and the human perspective and jumped on it and keep the task moving forward, while paying proper attention to the level of detail needed to comply with complicated legal/tax/paperwork needs, all while being supportive.

Sabina C. sold a home in Berkeley

Eileen and her team made this process so easy! Whenever anything needed to be done or changed they always let us know and gave us simple easy instructions to follow! This was a big project and the house was beautiful when it was time to list! Everyone involved was very knowledgeable and professional. When we didnt understand something they were extremely patient and explained it until we understood. I would definitely encourage anyone getting ready to sell or buy a home to look into working with this incredible team. Thank you all so much!

They were great - I listed with them - they suggested an asking price, I had it professionally staged with one of their recommended vendors. Had several offers >100k over asking. Closed early - great experience.

Beth H. bought a home in Oakland

During these weird pandemic times, I chose Eileen to guide me in purchasing a condominium in the East Bay through the recommendation of another respected real estate professional in another county. Eileen helped me along the process of searching, showings, procuring the loan, reams of virtual paperwork and closing. This can be a stressful process and Eileens expertise was reassuring and essential, actually.

Alex C. bought a home in San Leandro

We were very grateful that a family member connected us to Eileen when we were first starting our hunt for a home in the Bay Area. With demand through the roof, we knew it was a tough time to buy (especially in our price range) and it was so reassuring to have Eileen's experience, connections, and 'get to work' attitude in our corner. The Bay Area is a tough market in the best of times and we faced a steep learning curve, but Eileen was able to refer us to a wonderful lender and she really worked with us to find something that met our needs and our budget, even when it meant branching out and exploring many different neighborhoods and properties. We so appreciated her willingness to discuss and deliberate over the many details of each property so that we were really making an informed decision. We could not be happier with the perfect house that we now call home! Thanks, Eileen!
