I was excited to get a chance to list this adorable South Berkeley home. Wainscotting, picture molding, gorgeous light fixtures and endless period details made it a lot of fun to prepare for sale. We received an all-cash offer 4 days after I put the home on the market and my seller decided to accept it - 10 days later the home closed!

Sometimes people touch your heart and you want to make their dreams come true with all your might - these buyers were that to me. With a very tight budget but the need to be near UC and family in Berkeley, I simply had to make the impossible happen - I am proud to say that I did, and then some! Not only did we get a large 2/2 but also a truly magnificent high-end cabana with a half bath and two bedrooms in the backyard. I am truly delighted for them.

FEATURES

Traditional Albany MacGregor  

Built in 1942 and designed by the beloved Albany Developer, Charles MacGregor, this gingerbread storybook home is sweet as can be with a high pitched roof reminiscent of a fairytale illustration. 

This 808 SF home features two bedrooms and one bathroom, traditional dining & living room, with original fireplace as a visual focal point. The home sits upon a 3,520 SF lot with a large side and back yard.

The seller, having been there 37 years, has made significant improvements over time, including replacing all the stucco and sheathing (and that is no small feat), installing all new double-paned insulated windows, drainage around the outside of the home and replacing all the old knob-and-tube wiring throughout the house.

The kitchen has been tastefully updated and is ideal for a serious cook with an excellent ergonomic layout, extra-deep sink, high-end stove vent over the 6-burner collector's item stove with 2 ovens and 2 broilers.

The front yard is beautifully landscaped and the generous backyard is a blank canvas, ready for kids to run and play, a patio for parties or a gardener's paradise. Two graceful Oak Trees growing from the Ohlone Green Way, behind the home provide a lovely canopy. The storage shed is perfect for bikes, tools or just extra space to keep this and that!

The garage features plenty of shelving for tools or art supplies and is easily accessible through the kitchen. There is a fun little bonus room in the garage that would be an ideal kid's hideaway, a small office space or perhaps, a second bathroom one day?

The Albany Community with has excellent schools, friendly people, lots of parks and a small town feel– They still don't have parking meters! This home sits on a wonderful block with a neighborly feeling of warmth and welcoming. 

We received three beautiful non-contingent offers. My seller couldn't be happier!

This is my favorite condo in all of Albany! Over 800 square feet in

get to know the area, fast and furious! They plan to retire here in a
bit and needed to get to know the area - I really enjoy teaching
people about our great Bay Area. Within one weekend we made two offers and landed the second one! I am really happy for them!

Brand New and Shiny in the Heart of Berkeley’s Northbrae

Sold! Represented Buyer

1355 Carlotta Ave.

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

$1,485,000

My buyers on this house were close to my heart - their little girl had the same name as my first born and something about that child made me more determined than ever to get them into the home of their dreams. As one of them said, “We had three criteria and I thought we would have to give up two of the three but we got all three for a great price.” This house has new everything complete with Viking appliances. Perfection! Walking distance to Monterey Market and everything Berkeley has to offer.

2551 Potomac, Oakland

When I started working with this couple, they had to travel far to see homes - we spent hours looking at just a few homes and during that time I downloaded as much information as I could regarding structures and how to recognize a good one. When we got an opportunity to offer on this home (the seller had rejected the 3 offers that came in) they understood me when I explained what excellent condition it was in. And we made a strong offer and after some back and forth it was accepted. The comparable solds were all significantly higher - but they had the wisdom to see through the lack of fresh paint and staging and recognize the gorgeous condition of this Lincoln Heights.

2201 Mcgee, Berkeley

Sold! Represented Buyers

List price - $725,000

Sale price - $851,000

This small, lovely home replete with gorgeous detailing throughout was a whole lot of fun. My buyers were looking to spend under a million for a home in Berkeley - which can be hard - when we read the reports on this home we knew we might have a chance. Needing a new foundation meant that we could offer a bit lower. Sure enough, we got it! Throughout the escrow period, we managed to line up contractors to not only replace the foundation but to design a kitchen remodel and three separate quotes. I cannot wait to be invited to the house warming party - I am really happy for these bright and gregarious people.

This wee little home on a sweet little lot was everything these buyers
wanted. This young couple (and adorable little baby) came to me with a

out for us! But, I am delighted to report that I got them into
contract within 3 weeks of our first meeting. This adorable home sits
up on the hill in Richmond Annex and is close to much of the stores
and benefits of El Cerrito and Albany. They were quick learners and
made a very compelling offer!

Nothing Like Helping a Teacher!
735 Nevada Street, Oakland
Represented Buyer
Lisa Price - $279,000
 Sold Price - $375,000.00

This young woman came to me with the most challenging scenario of my
career. 3 1/2% down, FHA and max budget of $375,000. But she is a
teacher and I was determined to help her. We made only one offer and
we weren't messing around. This was a complex escrow with two
appraisals and because it was FHA it had to meet many difficult
criteria, all of which we negotiated with the seller to achieve. I
have never seen a buyer as delighted and happy to move into her 3
bedroom, 1 bath home with hardwood floors, a new kitchen and bath and
a massive corner lot. When her dad arrived with her moving truck he
also had a mulberry tree which he planted for her that day!
