When we decided to sell our house in Oakland, we looked no further than Anna, who we had worked with four years prior to buy our house. To say she is phenomenal is an understatement – she is the best, hands down.  We met with her a few months prior to us putting our house on the market to discuss what we should do to get it ready. Anna has a great awareness of what is happening in the housing market and had spot on suggestions for improvements (our house looked so good!).  We moved out of our house and she and another agent from her company handled everything – all of the contractors, painters, stagers, and cleaners to prepare the house. We did little to nothing to get the house ready!

Anna and the other agent kept us well informed of everything along the process – how the improvements were going and how the open houses went.  We received multiple offers on our home and Anna helped us to select the best offer for us.  The sale went extremely smooth and was quick and easy!

After we decided to buy in another state, we asked her if she knew any real estate agents in our new city.  She didn’t but went through a process of vetting a new agent for us!  We did not expect this at all and just shows again how amazing she is, even though we were no longer working with her.

Anna is really the best and has ruined us for all other real estate agents! Our new agent was great, but my husband said at one point that his expectations were so high from working with Anna that it almost felt unfair to the new person. You really cannot compare her to anyone else.

My husband and I were referred to Anna through friends.  We had a phenomenal experience working with her from start to finish.  She gives great, frank advice and really knows North Oakland and Berkeley.  She listened to what we wanted and stuck to that when we started to second guess ourselves.  She was always available and very responsive, even at night and on weekends.

Anna prepared us for a long search given the current housing market, then pulled a magic trick and found us a pre-market house that we wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise.  We were expecting the process to take six months to a year, and we moved into our new home in about six weeks (from when we started looking).  We were a little sad that we found a place so fast and didn’t get to spend longer working with Anna!

Even after we signed the papers, Anna continued to support us with multiple contractor referrals and information on how to transfer and set up our utilities.  She even scheduled some of the required work for us!

We highly recommend Anna and have told anyone who will listen how great she is!
