We just closed on the purchase of this fully rebuilt 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home located at 6818 Paso Robles Drive on Friday. My first-time home buyers could not believe that they got the first house that we made an offer on, and all that in the beautiful Montclair neighborhood of the Oakland Hills for only $885,000!

Just another reason to be excited about Oakland's Jack London Square neighborhood. It's always sad to see a bookstore close, but with the closing of Barnes & Nobles comes along this new 50,000 square foot restaurant/entertainment endeavor which is sure to breathe new life into the immediate area. The Plank will be opening in early October to much fanfare. I know I'll be going to check it out, especially since it's only a couple of blocks from our new East Bay Modern office! Check out this bit featured on CBS news.

Congratulations to my buyer clients who just closed escrow on a mostly original 4 bedroom/ 2 bath, atrium-model Eichler home at $830,000!  The home is located in the Rancho San Miguel neighborhood on a very quite-low traffic cul-de-sac with an open space park and Contra Costa trail access steps away.

After meeting the buyers at an Eichler-buying seminar I hosted, they expressed to me their "buyers fatigue" after searching and bidding on properties for over 2 years.  They even have seen over 200 houses in their search!  So, I'm thrilled to be able to land them their dream Eichler in just one offer after deciding to work with me.  They can now settle and enjoy life with their new addition!

This stunning Eichler now officially belongs to my clients Cindy & James.  New radiant heating, cork flooring, an on demand-water heater, and a fully updated kitchen and bathrooms only begins to describe this beautiful Mid-Century Modern home located in San Jose. With only two days available to us to find a house, and in such a competitive market, I know we were very fortunate to find and purchase such a beauty for $1,199,000. All that is left now is for the moving trucks to deliver their furniture from the East Coast. Congratulations!

I recently listed and sold 428 Alice Street #632 in Jack London Square-Oakland which closed escrow in 7 days at $645,000 ($20,000 over asking).  I had the pleasure of working "electronically" with awesome out-of-state sellers in a truly "modern-representation" transaction.  Congrats!

I'm happy to announce that today we closed escrow on this chic 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom loft in The Sierra Lofts of Jack London Square in Oakland. It's been a busy four weeks for my first-time home buyers. They got married three weeks ago on the East Coast, spent two weeks in Hawaii on their honeymoon, and returned just in time to sign the paperwork for their new home. We were lucky enough to have negotiated the sale of a property that was not even listed on the market and all of that at a very reasonable price of $585,000.

If you are looking to buy in Oakland or elsewhere in the East Bay, please reach out to me at or at 415-216-5653. And check out more of our local loft listings!

My great buyer clients just closed on a gorgeous townhome in the Artisan Walk community in hip North Oakland / Emeryville, which closed escrow for $588,000. This townhome features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2 car garage, and includes great views of the Berkeley Hills from the balcony. It's also within a short walking distance to dozens of shops and restaurants in the area. This was the first home I showed to my clients, and they fell in love with it immediately.

If you're looking in the Oakland, Berkeley, or Emeryville area, don't hesitate to reach out at any time. I'd love to help you find your next home.
