My husband and I moved to the East Bay 1 year ago from Ohio where things are done considerably different. Based on her positive reviews on Yelp, we contacted Anna when looking to find a home. At our first meeting, she sat us down and laid out the local housing market in great detail, filling us in on the behind the scenes details (what makes for a desirable offer, referrals for lenders, neighborhood information, etc). When she looks at houses with you, she points out all the things that may be an issue, she is not interested in making a quick sale, she wants to you to be very happy with the home you choose. It is because of her deep knowledge and guidance that we were able to secure the house we wanted in our #1 desired neighborhood (Rockridge in Oakland) on the very first home that we placed an offer on. She feels more like a friend who’s got your back (and knows everyone in town who can get you what you need). Do yourself a solid and call Anna, we’re so very glad that we did. Best real estate experience we’ve ever had.
