We met Becky about 4 years ago and we knew that if we ever needed to buy or sell a house we would work with her. We shared with her our real estate dream and we were ok to wait until everything aligned. We thought that we would buy a larger home and move out and then sell our current home. We finally found the perfect home in the Gold Coast of Alameda and Becky recommended that, as a strategy, we write an offer 2 days before the set offer date. Becky worked behind the scenes with the listing agent and we came to terms with the seller and made the property PENDING before the offer date. Becky assured us that we didn’t over-pay to make this happen. She was right—our appraisal came back even higher than what we paid! A slight curve-ball ~ our lender told us that we would need to be in contract to sell our current home (with a non-contingent offer) BEFORE we closed on our purchase, so our plans had to quickly change. Becky assured us that she could make it happen and mapped out a new plan that included “stay-staging” our current house and going live on the market while we went out of town for the weekend. She had a pricing strategy and a goal that was 25% higher, and we were nervous but we trusted her. Becky had us pending with a non-contingent offer at the exact goal number within 3 days! We moved into our “new” house and then our “old” house closed the next day. Becky was creative, strategic, and always optimistic and we all worked great together. We are happy to have her as our Realtor and our friend.
We had been looking for a place in Sonoma and when one that looked perfect popped up, we went to visit with Becky right away. Offers weren’t due for another week, but Becky devised a strategy where we wrote an offer 2 days early with a 3 day expiration to let them know how serious...
I sold with Becky in 2021 and she excelled in 3 main areas. A) Knowing the market and preparing the house to fit the market demands and position it for the highest return. B) Negotiating to get the highest price with the least possible risk. And C) Managing expectations and tempering emotions. In my opinion...
