“I cannot speak highly enough of Anne…Anne was incredibly thoughtful in sending me MLS listings that she had vetted and truly believed would be of interest to me and in my approximate price range; gave me great advice and insight into not only the Oakland housing market but also living in Oakland generally; and always responded promptly to emails, etc. Anne also gave thoughtful professional referrals…When working with Anne…I felt like I was being treated like a VIP and genuinely welcomed to Oakland – it was so much more than a business transaction. “ Paula K.
