Buying a house in the East Bay isn’t daunting if you know what’s coming. Let’s take this step by step...
Larry and Kress are a dream team! In advance of our cross-country move for a job transition, we began looking for homes in the Lamorinda area while still living in NYC. With very little knowledge of the East Bay and very limited time to look for homes, we knew we needed a realtor with deep knowledge of the area and a willingness to step in as our local advocate.Eliza & Peter
The whole team at Abio was a dream to work with – we had an incredibly smooth closing process for the purchase of our first home. Took us a while to find the right place but due to the relentlessness of our agent Sarka, we wasted no time when we found the right spot and we’ve been blissfully living in it for the last year. The market knowledge was a huge leg up in this competitive market.Christina T. — Oakland, CA
We bought our first home in December of 2016. Working with Sarka was an awesome experience. Our home search went much faster than we expected (three weeks from first open houses to going into contract) which meant that we had to move fast and make quick, confident decisions.Meta K. — Oakland, CA
Our mortgage company works with hundreds of real estate agents, and everyone at Abio stands out. They are all tech-savvy, professional, charming and responsive, and they know their stuff. The founders, Cameron and Linnette, often mention how they go out of their way to make sure everyone on the Abio team is both friendly and a great personality fit, and it shows.Jay V. — Walnut Creek, CA
I’ve worked with Abio twice in the past 2 years. Both experiences went very smoothly and resulted in great outcomes. They provide sound advice and strategy on how to maximize the value of your property. I will definitely use Abio again when the time comes.Jim W. — San Francisco, CA
I would like to recommend Julianna for her extensive knowledge, honestly, and professionalism. She helped us find our dream house. It was hard because we bought at a time when everyone else was buying too. Julianna always looked out for us she wrote multiple offers and even when we lost hope she kept positive and never gave up on us.Astrid Q.
Mary Anne was so dynamic she took care of every detail – we did not have to worry about anything. Mary Anne has been the best agent I have ever used in any of the 5 moves I have made.Cleo & Ann
Felicia is awesome. She’s friendly, reliable, dedicated and has amazing work ethic. She’s one of a kind, and a huge breath of fresh air in this real estate market full of sharks. I can’t recommend her enough.MaryKate R. — El Cerrito, CA
When Mary Anne talks, people listen! Her knowledge and experience are respected by both her clients and the local real estate community. When faced with a problem, I am always amazed at Mary Anne’s ability to look at all sides on an issue to find the best outcome for her clients. If I wanted to build the ideal real estate professional I would just copy Mary Anne!Bob O’Grady
I worked with Shannon on a transaction recently and she was fantastic. Smart, honest, hard working and clear. I would not hesitate to work with her again.Seth F. — Berkeley, CA
Marco’s warmth, professionalism, great sense of humor, and attention to details and always going the extra mile for his clients are what really blew me away. He is wise beyond his years! If you are in need of an energetic, savvy & hardworking realtor MARCO is your man!Michele D. — Orinda, CA
Raquel is amazing! Not only did she help me find the home I’ve always dreamed of, but she made the process so smooth. She is a true pro and knows her business.Deanna D. — Emeryville, CA
What we like best about Abio is their knowledge of the industry and ability to communicate that so you know exactly what is going on and what will occur. We also like the “non-pressure” style, whether purchasing or selling. They truly want you to be happy and not just “close the deal.”Lloyd
Cameron and Nicole are the best! We were new to the market in Oakland and they made us feel comfortable we were making a good decision. They guided us toward the right neighborhoods, and went above and beyond to give us recommendations on restaurants, bars, shops, etc nearby. We felt they really understood who we are and what we were looking for.Mike B. — Oakland, CA
Tomi Thomas was a wonderful find my husband and I were nervous 1st-time buyers. She guided us through every phase of the confusing process of house hunting (I knew nothing!). She went out of her way to meet with us on OUR schedule when we needed to meet. And, didn’t let us get discouraged in a competitive market if a bid got turned down.Tammy P. — Berkeley, CA
