Q&A

  • Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
  • 100% an early bird! I hop out of bed bright and early, regardless of the time I went to bed. I can also be a night owl when the right occasion calls for it, but I literally don’t know how to sleep in.
  • Favorite restaurant or hang out?
  • It changes frequently, but I’m currently loving the underground vibe & creative menu at Blind Tiger, an Asian fusion restaurant in Oakland.
  • Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
  • Robin Williams, whose humor always reminded me of my dad. Or I’d like to meet my favorite Robin Williams character, Mrs. Doubtfire who served as my inspiration during my nanny years – firm yet loving.
  • What’s your mantra?
  • Love people, use things. Because the opposite never works.
  • What’s your most treasured possession?
  • The ring my mom gave me when I turned 15 years old. I opted out of having a quinceañera to avoid the headache that comes with the traditional ceremony, so my mom gave me a ring to commemorate my “coming of age”.
  • What would you tell your 16-year old self?
  • Stop looking to “find yourself” – you’ll always be growing and adapting and that’s a great thing.

Hello there! My name is Felicia Mares. I’m an entrepreneur, traveler, aunt, creative, community volunteer, and lover of all things real estate. Born and raised in the Bay Area, I am grateful to help home buyers and sellers accomplish their real estate dreams in my favorite place in the world.

From studying human Psychology, to running after kids as a nanny, to building my career as a successful Realtor – I have maintained a sense of curiosity and independence in everything I do. My eagerness to learn has pushed me to be a student of my craft and has encouraged me to find solutions where there seem to be none. I am able to express my ingenuity by creating unparalleled marketing ideas and unique strategies to support my clients’ real estate goals.

By keeping the human factor top of mind, I can promise my unwavering support and attention while maintaining a genuine relationship with the agent on the other side of the deal which is key to a smooth real estate transaction.

With a background in education and childcare, my focus is placed on educating my clients to the Bay Area market, guiding first-time homebuyers through the home buying process, and cultivating ways sellers can get the most out of their investment.

You can expect to be guided with honesty, authenticity, sensitivity, and a bit of humor throughout the process.  Through the trust of my clients, I was able to shoot to the top of my brokerage, Abio Properties, within my first year in real estate. For that, I am forever grateful.  I’ve prioritized giving back to the real estate industry by becoming a leader in my local association as well as with the California Association of Realtors.

My devotion is to the East Bay, specifically Oakland, Berkeley, San Leandro, El Cerrito, Albany, Alameda, and my hometown of Richmond. My clients receive my wholehearted attention, enthusiasm, and an entire team who has their back. In my spare time, you can find me chowing down on French fries, listening to the latest podcasts, and getting walked on by my cat, Pasquale.
