Anna is fantastic!  We found our perfect home in Kensington thanks to her.

My wife and I are new the Bay Area.  We started looking at houses online several months before our move date.  Given the competitive nature of the Easy Bay housing market, this seemed like a long shot strategy for finding and buying a house.  We didn’t have high hopes.

However, Anna provided excellent guidance.  She encouraged us to do our homework — monitor the market, decide on what locations, home features, etc. were important to us, so that when the right home appeared, we would be able to act quickly.  Whenever we saw a listing that interested us, Anna would do the legwork.  She would tour it, and provide us with pictures and critical feedback. She was always available to talk on the phone, and always provided her honest and thoughtful input.  Her job, as she put it, was to give us all the reasons not to buy a particular house.

The house we ended up buying appeared online in mid-May and Anna immediately went to see it.  Based on her encouraging report, I was able to visit East Bay and Anna took me to tour it. The house was perfect for us — in a quiet neighborhood, well-cared for, but in need of some cosmetic upgrades, close to the new work place and to Tilden. In short, exactly what we were looking for.  Anna expertly helped us through the entire buying process.  She advised us on successful negotiating strategies, organized inspections, worked with the listing agent, lender and, title company seamlessly, identified potential pitfalls, and was professional and fun to work with throughout the entire process.  It’s clear she loves her job and is very, very good at it.

Our offer was quickly accepted, and in our mixed state of excitement and disbelief,  Anna navigated us through the closing process and made it seem easy.  She even recommended good local contractors for the renovations we have planned.

Anna is simply the best, and we can’t recommended her highly enough.
