We worked with Brian to sell our home in Oakland Montclair as part of a relocation process. Having moved to another city, it was important to us that our agent have not only a pulse on the Oakland market trends, but more importantly the diligence to keep on top of these trends and keep us informed remotely. We made the decision to work with Brian because he instilled in us the confidence that he could deliver on this goal. What we were pleasantly surprised to find, however, was that Brian was also committed to tailored service. His responsiveness and communication made us feel as though we were his only client. Most importantly, Brian approached the business as a partnership – we aligned on goals early, determined the best strategy to achieve these goals, and then executed on the strategy. He is the consummate professional and having worked with others, we can say with a high level of confidence that there are very few agents who will provide the level of service we received. If you’re considering buying or selling a home in Oakland, you would be well served to work with Brian.
Sincerely, Francis & Nicola Idehen
A Note from Brian:
Home buyers looking to purchase in Oakland Montclair generally look north up into Berkeley and south into Piedmont Pines, Rockridge, Glenview and sometimes Redwood Heights. That’s why making this looking look great in comparison to the other homes on the market at the same time. In preparation for the market we replaced the roof, stained the rear deck, did some misc painting and did the general list of pre inspections. Marketing was put in place and after 28 days we were able to enter escrow and close in 30. The Idehen’s were able to make their move to Chicago and as far as I know they are happily settled into their new life. If you are considering selling your home in Oakland, Piedmont or Berkeley please consider contacting me for a personalized property valuation and marketing proposal. Thank you for your consideration.
