“Anna is awesome!
My husband and I have sold/purchased 3 homes in the Bay Area over the past decade. We’ve dealt with our share of realtors. Anna is *by far* the best we have ever worked with. I can’t say enough good things about her.
We needed to sell our house. We have 4 kids and had outgrown our very cute but very small North Berkeley bungalow. We had this semi-crazy idea about moving out to the country and getting some land for the kids to run around on, Little House On the Prairie-style.
It seemed far-fetched, even to us, but Anna was instrumental in making our dream a reality. I sit here in our humongous great room that looks out onto the acre of land we bought in Sebastopol. The Gravensteins are ready now and with 5 trees on our property, we’ll have apples for months. Our kids pick blackberries from the bushes that grow wild at the edge of our land, climb trees, and head to the chicken coop each morning to check for eggs.
It’s wonderful, and again, we couldn’t have done it without Anna. She got us an amazing price on our house in Berkeley! Also, through a stroke of luck we actually received the offer before we even officially put the house on the market. Later on in the process, when our home inspection revealed a few pieces of minor bad news, Anna did a great job of protecting us and negotiating a price we were still thrilled with.
Through it all, we felt completely taken care of by Anna, and that she really had our back, unreservedly. In fact, I wish we could have used her for our home purchase in Sebastopol. The difference between Anna and the guy we used out here was huge, and made us all the more grateful that we had at least one realtor we knew was on our side and was looking out for our best interests.
As others have stated, Anna is very real (a rarity in the world of realty, we’ve found). She is honest and she really listens. And she really knows what she’s doing! We sold our home in Berkeley for a price that was literally $100K higher than another realtor we interviewed had quoted us.
Again, we could not have been happier with Anna. In the overcrowded world of Bay Area real estate agents, she stands heads and shoulders above the rest. We recommend her highly!”
