Sheryl R., El Cerrito – 10/16/16

We worked with Grace and Kim to sell our house. It had been about 20 years since we had sold our last house and we really needed the help. Grace and Kim let us know exactly what we needed to do in order to get the best price for our place. They worked with the workers who updated the place. Helped us get the best stager around. Since we had already moved out of the area they kept track of all of the work, inspectors and workers for us. We were able to do everything virtually which really helped us. All in all they made the whole process easy and fun.

Grace and Kim helped us write three very strong competitive offers before finding our new home. We were given great advice and helped us to be realistic about the competitive East Bay real estate market.

Grace and Kim were amazing. They were with us through every step of the process and were true advocates for us. Thanks to Grace’s skill, network and knowledge of the local market, we were able to secure a bidding win for our beautiful first home. Kim and Grace helped us connect the dots during the entire pre and post purchase process and were very responsive and knowledgeable throughout. I would highly recommend this team!

Grace and her assistant Kim are an amazing real estate team! From start to finish, I felt well taken care of. Grace was a recommendation from my previous real estate agent in San Francisco and after our first meeting; I knew she was the right fit for me and my working style.

Grace and Kim are detail oriented and efficient, and I found them easy to partner with in finding my new home. Whenever I had a question, either Grace or Kim got back to me very quickly. The market in Oakland, Berkeley, and Lamorinda is crazy. That said, if you (the buyer) invest time staying on top oflistings using an app like Redfin, you can leverage your agent to see the properties that most interest you. The real estate world is different now – I wouldn’t expect my agent to be driving me around to every new listing and giving me neighborhood tours. That’s on you, the buyer. But once I found homes that I liked, Grace and Kim were helpful at giving me input and additional info about them. When I wanted disclosure packets, I usually had them within 24 hours.

Where I really value the work of an agent and where I benefitted most from Grace and Kim is in their advice, offer strategies, network of relationships with other agents and people in the business, and their highly organized approach to moving through a deal. Grace seems to have fantastic relationships across the industry, which I believe definitely helped me win the home I purchased. Any time I needed to bring in an inspector or other professional, Grace and Kim always had trusted folks to immediately recommend. I never felt like we “stalled” at any point. I also never felt worried about “what’s happening right now?” The overall process was smooth and I’m happy with the home I purchased.

I would be very happy to work with Grace and Kim again in the future and I highly recommend them!

If you are in need of a real estate agent, you should call Grace Bishop at Red Oak Realty. We met with Grace while trying to decide whether to sell or rent a house that had been in the family for 60 years. When we decided to sell, Grace and her assistant, Kim, set us on the right path. At Grace’s suggestion, the proper inspections & updates to the house were made. When the house went up for sale and after just 2 open houses, we received 4 offers that far exceeded our expectations. Grace was very professional, informative, very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. We highly recommend Grace
