Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I am perhaps best known in the Bay area for my 20 plus years of dedicated service and leadership in the field of education. During these years, I have been entrusted with the care of thousands of children and have met and interacted, with many people of all ethnicities, sexual orientations, economic and religious backgrounds. Together we have worked on and solved many problems. We have found ways to meet the needs of families and children that in some cases went unaddressed for many years.

I have always thrived on solving problems. Buying or selling a property is exactly that, a problem to be solved. If you are a buyer I will help you find the right home in the right neighborhood with the right school district and at a price that fits your budget. After all you will be spending more time at this property than anywhere else. It should meet your needs in every possible way. If you are a first time buyer I want to show you that not only is it possible to purchase a home with little or no money down but it is essential if you ever want to move forward in creating prosperity for yourself.

If you are a seller, let's get that house listed today. Allow me to help you by developing a dynamic marketing plan that includes targeting the demographic groups who are most likely to want to purchase your property. Let's get is sold at the best price for the current market in the quickest amount of time.

In life there are major periods of transition that we go through. These might be: the birth of a baby, a marriage, a partnership, a new job, or the end of a relationship such as a death or divorce. Very often real estate plays an important role in allowing us to move forward in our lives. These are often stressful times, sometimes joyful, sometimes not. It is my desire to help in making these transitions a smooth as possible so that everyone involved can take that next important step on their life's path.

My background is not only in education. While I hold degrees in education at the graduate level, I have also run my own businesses in Tucson and Prescott, AZ. I have built my own house. I play music (piano, banjo), love gardening, have seven children of my own, six of whom I raised as a single parent (just the laundry was overwhelming!), discovered golf six years ago and am addicted to it (I'd also like to be good at it), written a book that nobody reads (I'm fascinated with words), learned how to read horoscopes, am beginning to learn Feng-shui, enjoy skiing and river rafting, start my day with meditation and journaling, love baseball (at every level) and world cup soccer (used to have my referees license), and, of course, I absolutely love children.  I grew up in New England but have also lived in Arizona and New York. I moved to the Bay area in 1985 and have lived in South Berkeley since 2001.

As your agent my commitment to you is to adhere to the Realtor's Code of Ethics while serving you with honesty, integrity, and diligence. We'll have fun together while we address your real estate related needs. Buying or selling your home, like life, like education, is a journey as well as a destination. Enjoy the ride!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Vallejo, CA.

I owned a house in the Hiddenbrooke development in Vallejo, but live in San Diego. I decided to sell the house, and on the recommendation of a relative, I contacted real estate agent, Bill Fletcher of Red Oak Realty in Oakland. While I was impressed with Bill, I was concerned that Hiddenbrooke was not located in the East Bay area where Bill normally works. After talking to Bill about his marketing plan for the house, I was convinced and gave him the listing. That was definitely the right decision.

From start to finish Bill provided excellent service and advice. He inspected the house and told us what needed to be done – basically cleaning up the clutter and some touch-up painting. He recommended a painter who was responsible and fairly priced. Once we had prepared the house, he had a professional photographer take photos to be used in the marketing material. When I saw the pictures, I had to ask myself why I was selling such a great looking house. Bill then kicked off the marketing effort with our house info and pictures distributed everywhere.

The marketing effort was obviously effective as we received a great offer the day before our first open house. Bill’s efforts on our behalf did not stop once we accepted the offer. He was at the house when the Buyer’s inspector checked it out. He worked out very favorable possession and other terms with the Buyer’s broker and continually checked on the status of the transaction and the Buyer’s waiver of contingencies. He responded quickly and helpfully to every one of our questions.

The sale closed this week. The result was better and faster than we ever imagined.

If you need a real estate agent, I strongly recommend that you contact Bill.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Prescott, Oakland, CA.

Bill was courteous, cheerful and respectful. He had a ton of local knowledge and was always willing to help, but never over-assertive. Despite having to go through five offers AND dealing with negotiating the final offer while I was traveling for work in London, I never felt like things were out of hand or that I didn't understand what was going on.

Five-stars.

Bought a home in 2013 in Hoover-Foster, Oakland, CA 94612.

Bill is a great agent. Throughout the entire process of working with Bill, he went above and beyond in terms of negotiating my purchase price, reviewing documents, guiding me through the process, and looking out for all of the minor, but important, details that I would have missed. I trust Bill implicitly and am looking forward to working with Bill again in the future. I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for real estate in the East Bay.  More Less
