My clients Laura & Patrick officially became the new owners of this fabulous 5 bed, 3 bath, 3120 SF home today. The wrap-around deck with built-in jacuzzi offers stunning views of the San Pablo Bay and the surrounding area. My clients had two must haves in their home search; views & RV parking. With both of those goals satisfied, their move from Fresno to the Bay Area should be a happy one!

Just closed escrow on this cool upper floor loft in Oakland's Dogtown District. This is my second sale of the year at the Helen Street lofts. I'm thankful to my clients for entrusting me with the sale of their investment property. I made sure the unit received a fresh coat of paint, was properly staged, and professionally photographed. Listed for $450,000, we just closed escrow today at $485,000!

While Uber's purchase of the building at 1945 Broadway made headlines, it's just one of many corporate relocations in 2015. The San Francisco Business Times recently featured an article that included 15 of the largest companies to start their Oakland relocation plans. These are in addition to others that moved from other parts of the Bay Area, such as Sunset Magazine's well-publicized move from Menlo Park to Jack London Square.

Other large companies to make the move this year include Brown and Toland (Healthcare), CoreLogic, the California Institute

Hilary and I represented the seller of this lovely 1 bedroom 1 bathroom flat in Alameda's Park Webster Condominiums. The owner had made some nice upgrades throughout the unit and thus it showed very well. After only one open house we received a couple of offers and sold the unit for $25,000 over the asking price. Our client, happy with his sales proceeds has now hired us to find him a replacement property.

Should you be considering a sale or purchase of a home, I would be happy to help!
