What Our Clients Say
"I wish there were 10 stars to give Red Oak's Grace and Kim! They are the gurus of East Bay real estate - professional to the hilt, knowledgeable enough to write a book, highly responsive, kind, patient and most of all, always got the job done! Fantastic teamwork with delightful people. Thank you for getting us into a home we'll love in this crazy Bay Area market. Highly recommend! All the best, TC."
"As this was my first home sale, I was not sure what to expect for the process. Grace and Kim handled this somewhat difficult escrow with ease, allowing me to execute this entire transaction from out of state (and for part of it out of the country). This was invaluable to me as it didn’t require me to go to California, and I felt that I was in great hands throughout the entire process. I was also able to get quite a bit more for my property than I thought I could, due to their thorough knowledg..."
"We worked with Grace and Kim to sell our house. The experience was great. They are very knowledgeable, I always felt informed, communication was quick and direct, all my questions were answered and then some. Working with them was an absolute pleasure."
"The buying and selling of houses are intense life experiences, evoking emotions and requiring ample support. Realtor Grace Bishop’s confidence and composure was precisely what we needed to make countless decisions. During our family’s year-long journey for a more fitting house. Grace’s expert knowledge of the housing market, her referral to an exceptional loan officer and her paced guidance, provided us with the foundation we needed to make an accepted offer on a cosmetic fixer house, loca..."
"We met Grace almost 20 years ago when we were looking to buy our first home. We were walking down Solano Ave and as we passed by the Albany Red Oak Realty office stopped to look at the listings in the window. Grace came out to see if she could help and even though we were not qualified yet, she took the time to explain the process and put us in touch with a lender that could help. We kept in touch and within 6 months we were ready to go! The market was really competitive at that time so we ma..."
"Grace has helped members of our family buy three homes and sell one over the past eleven years. Recently she advised my son as he searched for a home in Oakland and Berkeley. Grace assisted him in evaluating properties, accurately estimating the price that would be necessary to compete for a given property. Her suggestions were spot on in writing a winning bid, and she and her assistant Kim helped my son navigate escrow and meet all deadlines in a timely fashion. Since the sale, they have remain..."
"My brother and I were unexpectedly confronted with having to sell our childhood home this summer soon after our mother passed away. We had time constraints for the sale, and one of us lived out of state—both of which complicated the emotional process of finding a realtor quickly and preparing the outdated home to compete in El Cerrito’s competitive market. As we had no referrals from which to choose a realtor, we decided to interview three: two from El Cerrito and one from out of the area..."
"Grace and Kim were so easy to work with. They were prompt and resourceful. They made our first home buying experience smoother than we ever thought possible."
"From start to finish, Grace set us up for success. We came from San Francisco and had no knowledge of buying a house in Berkeley. Grace and Kim showed us neighborhoods and shared their vast knowledge of the community and the requirements of purchasing a home in Berkeley. When Grace learned that we loved a particular home, she immediately contacted the seller’s agent and asked our questions. As we had additional questions, she would promptly follow-up with the sellers agent again. From Gr..."
"Grace and Kim helped sell my family’s house in El Cerrito hills in early spring 2017. This was truly a team effort with a very successful outcome. For example, the house was in need of significant renovation before it was put on the market, and Grace was instrumental in finding and managing expert contractors who transformed it into a spectacular home that sold quickly. Grace and Kim were professional throughout the process, everything went on schedule, even during record-setting rains, and th..."
