For Buyers

There are lots of real estate agents out there so let us tell you how we are different:

  • Area Knowledge – Both Nancy and Rick were raised in this area, played sports here, attended local schools, worked in San Francisco and Oakland, raised our family here, are active in local government and have been Realtors here for over 17 years. Be sure to check out the map of our previous transactions on the Areas We Serve page in the About section.
  • We Educate You – Our goal is to impart enough information that you can make educated decisions about your purchase. We do that by educating you on the current market, on current market trends, on the local neighborhoods, the schools, the commute, the homes currently on the market, homes expected to come on the market and on the purchase process.
  • Extensive Relocation Experience – We are certified with the world’s largest relocation companies CARTUS and SIRVA. We have been relocated internationally and we have helped families who are relocating nationally and internationally. We understand the pressures, the deadlines, the processes and the impact on your family. We can help you navigate through the process in the smoothest way possible.
  • Efficient & Effective – We are used to working with busy people and our processes are streamlined to make it easy to find and buy a home. We use the web extensively to help you review potential properties from your home or office. We have a network of experienced loan officers and mortgage brokers representing a wide variety of lenders that will help you get pre-qualified and pre-approved so you will be ready to make an offer when the right home comes along. Before we take you to a home we will have seen that home and be able to explain why it is worth your time to go see. We use the Docusign system of electronic signatures which makes it possible for you to handle the paperwork process efficiently and from your own desk.
  • Experienced in Short Sale and REOs – Much of the activity in the current market is focused on short sales and REOs (bank owned properties). Rick has done over 40 REO and short sale transactions so he understands what works and what does not work. He understands the pitfalls to be avoided. Rick is also a Certified HAFA short sale expert and is up to date on the latest government programs.
  • Focused – We are full time Realtors who are committed to this business for the longterm. We spend a great deal of time remaining educated and up to date and we are in the market every week so we know what is happening.
  • Committed To Your Success– When Nancy and Rick take on a client they work with that client no matter how long it takes. We have had cleints who have looked for days and those that have looked for years. We remain committed to you and to helping you achieve your goals.

Call us to find out if we are right for you. We will give you a no commitment tour of the area where you are interested in buying. If you have not decided on an area, we will give you an overview presentation of the various cities and neighborhoods to help you narrow down the areas of most interest.
