Team reviews

We used Andrea Gordon for both selling our house and buying a new one. It was a whirlwind period of time for us and I do not exaggerate when I say that we would not be in our lovely new home if not for Andrea. We immediately liked Andrea upon meeting her. She’s down-to-earth and fun and yet extremely savvy and smart. We felt comfortable and knew right from the start that we were in capable hands. As we got ready to sell, all of Andrea’s recommendations for people to use in getting our house ready for the market (from plumbers and electricians to movers) were amazing. The house sold for well over our asking price within days of being listed. Andrea helped us navigate and understand the offer and we came away from that sale feeling extremely well looked after. At the same time as she was helping us sell, Andrea had begun looking for our new home. Because she is so well connected, she hears about houses that are coming on the market before they actually do and we became interested in our current house before it went up for sale. Once it did, with Andrea’s help we were able to act quickly and decisively. I have no doubt that without Andrea we wouldn’t be in the wonderful house we are in today. Of course along the way there are doubts, freak-outs, second thoughts and anxieties: moving is stressful! Andrea took all of these in stride. She held our hands, listened to us, cheered us up with her positive outlook, and all-in-all smoothed the road for us in so many ways.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Berkeley, CA.

Andrea helped my mother sell her home in Berkeley, CA in 2014. The house needed quite a bit of work and we were unsure if we would be able to fix it up and sell it in the time-frame we required. From the first time we met with Andrea she supported us and was available day and night. She helped us find a painter and wonderful person to stage the house. Our neighbors were impressed with her professionalism and the quality in which she presented the home. AFTER the sale, she still returned our calls promptly when we had questions, and even helped us attain duplicate paperwork for tax purposes! She has truly been a wonderful and honest person to work with!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Berkeley, CA.

My wife and I bought our first home last year and Andrea was our buyers agent. Working with Andrea was a pleasure throughout the process. We didn’t know a lot about what was involved in buying a house and Andrea guided us through every step. She was always willing to meet us in the evenings or weekends if there was a house we wanted to view. Andrea has an extensive knowledge of the East Bay housing market and was well known by all the selling agents we spoke to. Overall an excellent person to have on your side.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.725M in Berkeley, CA.

I'd highly recommend Andrea. We used her to buy a new home and sell our previous home and we had a great experience. Both transactions were somewhat complex and her experience and knowledge really helped us multiple times. She's a pleasure to work with!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Lafayette, CA.

We would like to highly recommend Andrea Gordon. She recently helped us purchase a fantastic house in Lafayette CA. Her knowledge of the market and strategizes on offers helped us get a great house in the neighborhood we wanted to live in. She found us a home that meet the needs of our family and guided us through making a successful offer in a competitive marketplace. She helped us get compensation from the seller for issues that arouse during the home inspection. She also helped us deal with an unethical pest company. And the rent back she setup with the seller went very smoothly as well. She was fantastic to work with and we feel like we got a great home for a great price due to Andrea’s expertise.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Alameda, CA.

Andrea helped us purchase an old Victorian in Alameda. Initially, we had contacted her to show us a fixer-upper in Alameda and, wow, was it a fixer! Andrea warned us that the house was in disrepair but still offered to us because we had our heart set on seeing it. When we conceded it too much for us, she was ready with 3 other listings to show us, all in our price range and in areas we were interested in. Once we decided to go with one of the houses she showed us, she was on top of it! She helped us put together a competitive offer and stayed on top of the negotiation to make sure our offer was the best. Once we won the bid, Andrea worked quickly to set up an inspection and get the necessary parties involved. She has an extensive network of knowledgeable people that makes the buying process easier. If you're new to buying, make sure you understand the process before you jump in. Andrea is an experienced, busy agent that will close the sale but she moves quickly and you've got to be prepared! She communicates directly with you and responds quickly to emails and calls.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Claremont, Oakland, CA.

Stay away from this woman and the associates she will assign to you,the first intern failed to place my offer and the second one suggested a bid that did not take into consideration that the previous models that sold for the same price had been completely renovated and that the HOA was in big trouble. My first year I was hit with an assessment and another is in the works. I refrained from writing a review but this is the third time you have asked.

I am dismayed because I strive to give my clients the best customer service possible, as evidenced by my many other reviews. We had personnel changes throughout 2013, and if this particular buyer felt she got poor service, I certainly apologize.

Sold a home in 2012 in Panoramic Hill, Berkeley, CA 94705.

I worked with Andrea and her team to sell a house in the Claremont Hills region. We had a quick time table. Andrea met every deadline, provided excellent references for gardening services, contractors, cleaners etc. Her preparation concerning the property was first rate. The presentation information-photos and brochures- were outstanding. The website she organized for the property was simply stupendous. It looked fabulous and was easily accessed by web searches, a crucial marketing edge in today's world. We received multiple offers within 10 days and Andrea provided excellent advice as to how to review the strength of each offer and contingencies. Andrea adeptly handled negotiations and we accepted an offer well above asking with another offer in backup. The entire matter closed quickly and without a problem. Andrea provided personal detailed attention to every aspect of the sale. She is charming, very knowledgeable about real estate in general and the specific regional areas. She us easy to work with-low key, happy and friendly. She listens to her clients but will provide an honest assessment of the real estate deal. I cannot say enough good things about Andrea. Quite simply the best recommendation I can give is to say I will work with her again without a second thought.

Sold a home in 2013.

Last summer (2013) we had the pleasure of working with Andrea on the sale of our property in Alameda. We interviewed several local agents and picked Andrea for a number of reasons but the main reasons that stood out was her energy and enthusiasm. We were out of town sellers so we needed someone that we felt we could trust. She went above and beyond and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. To make a long story short, our first (and last) offer was $60K over asking price. Need I say more?

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Upper Dimond, Oakland, CA.

Andrea (and her team, especially Cathryn) went out of their way to assist us in our search for our dream home. She understands current market conditions and will take the time to explain things in layman's terms when needed. We would highly recommend their services, and will use them again.
