My approach is always realistic, optimistic, and enthusiastic – I will be your coach, cheerleader and sometimes therapist.


Tracy Butler

REALTOR ® | DRE: 01342671

Using my rich knowledge of the wonderfully diverse East Bay neighborhoods, I’ve been bringing buyers and sellers together since 2002. My greatest joys are handing buyers keys to their dream homes and guiding sellers through a smooth, profitable process.

I understand that buying or selling a home in today’s market is exciting, challenging, and one of the biggest financial decisions most people will ever make. But I’m here for my clients every step of the way, because – besides being a real estate pro with two decades of experience – I’m part cheerleader and therapist, too!

Whether I’m helping folks with a starter home, a million-dollar estate, or an investment property, clients and colleagues know me as forthright and honest. One agent recently told me her seller accepted my buyer’s offer not because it was the highest bid (it was not!) but because I wrote such a clean and detailed proposal.

I specialize in cutting-edge marketing and excellent negotiation skills. You’ll find I am exceptionally knowledgeable about the vibrant neighborhoods of Oakland and Piedmont, including Montclair, Rockridge, Oakmore, Claremont Hills, and Glenview. I’ve lived in the Oakland Hills for more than 20 years, so I have invaluable connections, including with the best tradespeople for your home improvement needs.

How I got here: After many years in the software industry performing marketing and business development roles, I decided to take my marketing and negotiation skills in a new direction!

More about me: I grew up in northern Wisconsin. No, I don’t miss the winters. Yes, I still cheer for the Green Bay Packers (proud Cheesehead!). I love exploring all the East Bay parks with my rescue dog Jelly Bean. When I’m not real-estating or hiking, you might find me scuba diving somewhere warm.

Above all, you should know I am a fantastic listener, I care deeply about my clients, and I go the extra mile to meet and exceed expectations!

What Clients Say About Tracy

“We were so happy to have Tracy support us in the process of selling our home and buying a new one. It could not have been done without her! She is so patient and 100% aware of our needs as clients. I would strongly recommend Tracy to anyone I know!”

– Eve K.

“I just sold my first house with Tracy. Selling a house is a lot of work – with many technicalities and loads of paperwork! Tracy’s assistance was indispensable. She is straight-forward, thorough, detail-oriented, and kept up good communication. She understands the current zany housing market. Tracy helped me find amiable buyers and a favorable price.”

-Theresa P.

“Tracy helped us buy our first home, and we couldn’t be happier with the experience! She zeroed in on our tastes quickly and was able to find homes we liked. We didn’t know much about the different neighborhoods in Oakland and didn’t know anything about real estate, and Tracy was extremely helpful and patient with us.

She was very flexible with our busy schedules and was always available through phone or email if she had conflicting appointments. I was shocked at how complicated the closing process was. Tracy was knowledgeable and knew just when to step in to nudge others or ask a question. She is totally straightforward which was much appreciated by us. I can give her my highest recommendation if you are looking for a home in Oakland!”

-Suzannah P.

“I literally never write reviews, but Tracy was one of the BEST aspects of my home buying process that I felt more than compelled to spread the word. I was a first-time home buyer searching for a house/townhouse/condo for months and getting very discouraged. Every day I would stalk online sites to look at properties wishing one would work out.

Needless to say, I was a rather anxious customer, I probably would have gotten sick of myself if I were my own client. Once I hooked up with Tracy, however, she was amazing! Tracy was soooo patient with me and simply fantastic. Every time I asked to see a property, she would arrange a showing ASAP.  So few people are nearly as responsive as Tracy, even while she was on vacation!”

-Brie J.
