Here are the tenets we live by...
1. Build Lasting Relationships
Some clients take just days to purchase or sell their homes; others take more time to study the market and make their move. That's alright with us. We view every client relationship as a long term one. Most people we work with are repeat clients who initially came through a word-of-mouth referral, and many are friends long after their move is complete.
2. Offer Boutique Service
We prefer to work with just a few clients at a time so that everyone receives excellent personal service and the details are all attended to. If we are too busy or have a conflict of interest, we will be honest about that and refer you on to someone excellent.
3. Simplify the Selling Process: Maximum Price for Minimal Effort
Selling your home can be an emotional process, and it's a lot of work getting ready to move. We will help you focus on the things that are going to maximize the price you get for your home, while minimizing the workload. We'll connect you with reliable, cost effective service providers and stagers, and can schedule and supervise the work. Then comes smart pricing, great marketing, high-visibility open houses and constant communication with the agent network. We will help you select and negotiate the best offer possible and get the sale completed. Because of our deep agent network, we are often able to sell homes "off market" if that is your wish.
4. A No-Pressure Approach to Buying
We will never try to convince you that a property is right for you. After seeing enough homes, you'll know the perfect fit when you see it. Our job is to help you understand our market so that when the right house comes up, you're ready to make a winning offer. Then the strategic work begins - we'll guide you through inspections, smart negotiations and right through to closing. We also have access to many listings before they are available to the public.
5. Our Reputation Impacts Your Success
In this competitive market, it is important to work with a respected local agent that other agents trust to deliver on their promises, and get transactions across the finish line. We have deep history in Lamorinda and we are known for doing what we say we are going to do.
6. Honesty Above Everything Else
It should go without saying that we value honesty above all. If we don't know something, we aren't afraid to admit it and help you find the answer. If the answer isn't what you want to hear, we'll say it anyway. After all, this relationship is 100% based on trust so we can't run our business any other way.
