I had the pleasure of representing the sellers of 256 Los Banos Ave, Walnut Creek, which closed escrow at $880,000 ($50,000 over the ask price).

I enjoyed staging, listing, and marketing this property and would love to do the same for you!  If you are in the market for an Eichler home or if you already own one and are thinking about listing, please allow my expertise to work for you.

Congratulations to the buyers of 1828 Clayton Way in Concord, who just closed escrow at $500,000 on their new home. Ken Fox and I were fortunate enough to represent our recent sellers of 4026 Salem St. (also in Concord) on this home that provided more space and a much larger lot for their family.

The home features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a large finished basement with additional living areas and a workshop. It had been impeccably maintained by the original owner for nearly 60 years! It also features an expansive 15,000 square foot lot, which was perfect for our buyers who were looking for a large space for their children and pets.

Ken Fox and I had the pleasure of representing our clients on the sale of their beautiful Eichler home with atrium in Concord's popular Rancho de los Santos neighborhood, which closed escrow at $595,000 - the highest Eichler sale price in the neighborhood this year!

The home features 4 bedrooms and 2 baths across 1,811 square feet (per tax records). It also features a large 7,700 square foot lot and amazing natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The sellers also painted (inside and out) as well as refinished the concrete flooring in preparation for sale. Congratulations to our sellers and to the very lucky buyers!

Congratulations to my client for the sale of his rental property. My client was unsure about selling this late in the year, but after prepping, staging, and marketing the property to the fullest extent we received 8 offers and closed for $110K over asking at $720,000. It's a fantastic property for the price and both seller and the buyers are very happy.

Congratulations to my happy buyers that just closed escrow on 5721 Elizabeth Street in Oakland! My clients originally had been looking for a loft, but then fell in love with this home. A Spanish-style home built in 1917, it features 3 bedrooms and 1 bath in the main home, as well as 1 bedroom and 1 bath in the attached in-law unit. It has been partially updated but retains much of the original charm, while allowing my buyers the opportunity to put their own finishing touches on the home...all for the great deal of $308,000!
