Anna is the BEST! I met Anna at an open house in the Berkeley Hills and while we were not interested in putting an offer on that house, I connected with Anna immediately. My husband and I had been looking for a larger home for many months and it appeared our SF-based real estate
agent did not have the inside track as we were making offers. In short, a local agent can help you in the Berkeley real estate market and Anna was that person for us.
We decided to make Anna our agent and I was impressed by her honest feedback, giving us the pros and cons on each property. She always worked at lightening-quick speed, getting back to me promptly by email, phone or text. Anna knew exactly what we wanted and she kept our best interests at heart. She even talked me out of placing an offer on a home since she knew I would not be happy with it long term. I don’t know how many agents would do that.
After a home sale fell through, Anna contacted us immediately and we placed an offer. We were so happy when our offer was accepted! It took 14 months, 7 offers and 2 real estate agents in this crazy market to find our house but it was all worth it. We are in a house that we love and want to live in for many years. Anna’s work doesn’t stop ~ she connected us with incredible plumbers, roofers and home inspectors who all helped us get into our house. Everyone that we called for bids was very competitive and fair and they all clearly enjoy working with Anna.
Shortly after we moved into our new place, we gave Anna the keys to our old house. She coordinated everything ~ the painting, landscaping, cleaning, etc. at very fair prices. She would let them in so they could do their work and we knew we were in good hands. Anna got our house prepped during the holidays so we were able to list it shortly afterwards.
Despite my skepticism about listing around Super Bowl, Anna knew it was the right time and 200 people came to the open house on Super Bowl Sunday. It was incredible. We got ten outstanding offers on our house and Anna helped us cross the finish line on that house too.
I can’t say enough great things about Anna. I feel so fortunate to have met her!! I have already recommended her to all of my friends who are looking for a house in the Berkeley area and hope that they work with her!
