Year of Happiness

This year, we were honored to work with the best clients we could have ever dreamed of. In January 2021 we declared this year to be the “Year of Happiness”, and boy did you deliver!

We want to highlight some of the moments that made us smile. While this list is a fraction of the 60 buyers and sellers that called on us to represent them, we remember each of you with fondness and gratitude. Thank you for making 2021 the best year yet!

2021 Highlights

Throughout the year of 2021, we represented a total of 39 sellers and 21 buyers. We are so honored to have represented each and every one of our wonderful clients. Congratulations to you all! We wish you all the best in your next chapters.

7528 Outlook Avenue, Oakland

2021 kicked off with an Oakland Tudor…for a family that grew out of their starter home, a successful sale launched them into their forever home.

7415 Potrero Avenue, El Cerrito

Big dreams of entrepreneurship and the desire to be close to family had these talented designers move out of state, but before they moved, they did a bang-up job on their midcentury home.

211 Yale Avenue, Kensington

We’ll never forget the kindness and trust of this client. The grace and beauty of this home matches its owner perfectly!

7516 Potrero Avenue, El Cerrito

We brought in our trusted design partners to strategically renovate portions of this home to let the inside shine as much as the outside! The sellers’ parents were instrumental in designing the garden, and when they told us that the right time to sell was spring we held off on listing until the flowers were in full bloom. Saying goodbye to this home was hard but we know they’re happy now that they live closer to family!

2736 Arlington Boulevard, El Cerrito

The midcentury design elements of this house really popped once we completed the full renovation of the kitchen and bathroom. Paired with our trustworthy stager and magical gardener, this home sale set a new homes sale record in 2021!

857 Seaview Drive, El Cerrito

Our dear clients here moved across the world and handed us the keys to their beloved home set on a quarter-acre lot. The trust meter here was very high and we held that responsibility close to our hearts. We are so thrilled they are living the post-retirement dream!

1719 Oregon Street, Berkeley

We sold these clients this darling craftsman eleven years ago, and they have lived many lifetimes in this home since. The sale here represents so much to their family and the memories imbued in the rooms and walls were hard to say goodbye to - it was our honor to shepard them through this bittersweet phase. We dug deep on the kitchen design here and achieved a balance of refreshed and vintage to retain the old-world charm.

563 Martin Street, Oakland

We worked with two legacy sellers this year! The Martin duplex seller donated the proceeds to a number of socially progressive and environmental non-profits.

6426 Lagunitas Avenue, El Cerrito

The second legacy sale donated the majority of their proceeds to UCSF - a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts. We are so so grateful for these generous souls! This is good real estate in action.

267 Amherst Avenue, Kensington

This stunning Kensington Tudor was updated through the years by the most talented amateur interior designer - the seller here has some serious design genes and we are counting down the days until she opens her own practice! These clients were a joy to work with and they are one more client who moved to be closer to family.

436 57th Street, Oakland

This Rockridge craftsman was lovingly updated as well over a decade of ownership, and the new owners inherit a neighborhood of the kindest and most giving people in Oakland. We are so happy for both seller and buyers!

315 Behrens Street, El Cerrito

In 2021 we worked with many Trustees. In most cases, the relationship we develop with people who are often mourning the loss of a trusted parent or elder is tender and gentle - a practice of listening, patience, and generosity of spirit. In addition to saying goodbye to their treasured family home, they asked us to updated the home to meet today’s buyer interests. We brought in our trusted design partners to embark on significant updates to the home and the result was truly breathtaking. Our warmest congratulations to this amazing family!
