Among the latest newly planned developments for the ever fast growing City of Oakland is this 7 story mixed-use building slated for the downtown area. To be built on a current parking lot, this building will include 224 housing units along with retail space and over 200 parking spaces! Located just a few blocks from the 19th St. BART station this proposed mixed-use building will be an exciting new addition to Oakland's rapidly changing Uptown area.
The project is being built by the national developer Lennar, who has already committed to building another large-scale Oakland residential project as well as an additional project in Berkeley. Furthermore,...
At $449,000 this 4 bed, 2 bath, West Oakland home is a true bargain for my first time home buyers. Gina & Mitch first contacted me a couple of months ago wanting to purchase their first home in the same neighborhood as where they were renting. Just a couple of blocks from San Pablo Ave., the first property that we looked at was the one they wanted. It took a bit of negotiating and two days later we were in contract. Today, just about 34 days later I handed the keys over to Gina & Mitch!
Don't be discouraged by this real estate market as the right property is waiting for you, and I'm here to help you realize that dream!

Not on MLS yet. Come to the Sunday Open House to get a sneak preview of 103 Corte Mesa located in a small, private complex of 28 units at the end of a cul d sac. It features 3

I am fresh off of watching
last night’s Presidential debate thus the name of the title, a little bit about
the book, and nothing to do with which candidate makes the most sense (politics
and real estate do not mix). The book the Art of the Deal has some very good
tidbits about thinking big, knowing your market, and maximizing your options.
So, I am now going to try and leverage some of that knowledge and provide a few
good tips on how the savvy buyer should prepare and negotiate for getting the
best deal on the purchase of their new home.
Firstly, you really really really need to know your finances and work with what
you realistically will be able to afford. Unless you’re one of...
A few weeks ago I had the honor of receiving an invite for
cocktails at a client's home! These are the moments that remind me why I love
what I do and moments that I treasure.
A little back story...My clients met in San Francisco and
ended up on the East Coast for work not realizing it would take them 25 years
to get back home. When I met them they were planning for their retirement and
making good on their promise to themselves to return to Marin.
Their criteria included a home with 2-3 bedrooms in
Sausalito or Tiburon with views. They wanted some outdoor space but really
their top two desires were water views and to return to Tiburon (with Sausalito
in 2nd place). They didn't necessarily want a project but they were open...
