Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in San Leandro, CA.
I met Cameron in 2005 when my then fiance, now husband and I were looking to buy a house. I saw an add on TV about getting updated listings by going to a website. There were no realtor names associated with the website, but rather I filled out a form, submitted it and waited. Cameron Platt was the first to respond (within 24 hours). He was kind and friendly, and I liked him immediately. So began our adventure of finding a house that me and my "soon to be husband" would agree upon.

Cameron was very attentive to both of us, taking note of what each of us liked and disliked. I had mentioned one house in particular that both my husband and I really liked, but it was out of our price range. Cameron took it upon himself to go see this house on his own, and subsequently started to send us listings that were very similar to "this special house" (way to rock it, Cameron). While the houses Cameron showed us were nice, none were quite right; our hearts were set on this one "special house."

So, we put our house hunting on hold for a few months, and then one day, out of the blue, Cameron called me to let me know that the price of "our special house" had been dropped, twice! Of course, he immediately set up an appointment for us to see the house, and we fell in love (we had only seen it from the outside before, and the pictures of the inside on the flyer). We bought the house in Nov., 2005, and Cameron was very skillful in arranging for it to close on my husband's birthday! What a wonderful birthday gift it was in 2005!

Cameron is very different from the realtors I have grown to know (and dislike). He is very easy-going, always kind, friendly and cheerful, contagiously positive and incessantly patient (I hear he plays the guitar very well, too). He was never, ever pushy or in a hurry to "get a sale." I knew immediately that he was NOT your typical realtor. I'd apologize for not liking a house and he'd say "No hurry, just take your time; I want you to make the right choice" (I can hear his voice now). He knew and appreciated the importance of buying a house that was right for us. He'd send us listings of houses that "my husband and I liked," he wasn't pushing "any old house" on us just to get the sale. Patience and persistence paid off!

About two years ago, due to the downturn of the market, we had to shortsell our beautiful home. Cameron to the rescue! He was AWESOME again! He helped make a very stressful, distressful situation tolerable. Cameron is always very helpful, calming and compassionate, and great to work with!

He's always helpful, even when he's not actively working with me. When my Mom passed away in 2008, I called him to ask him questions about real estate issues, and he was very happy (and not put out) to help! I also introduced him to my brother to help him out with some real estate matters as well, and my brother thinks Cameron is great, too!

I have referred several friends and colleagues to Cameron and will continue to do so! Whenever someone I know is selling or wanting to buy a house, I tell them "Call my realtor, Cameron Platt! He's AWESOME!!!" Cameron is my "go to realtor," on whom I can depend and trust! You ROCK, Cameron!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Piedmont Pines, Oakland, CA.
We previously listed out Montclair house with the realty "specialist" for the area, and the experience was a disaster. We took our house off the market for a few months and chose to work with Cameron. We had a few minor bumps, which we expected, and Cameron worked with us to make sure we understood what was happening and to reevaluate strategy. Through collaboration and creativity, we sold our house for more than the listing price the "specialist" had previously listed it for. Great experience for us!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in San Rafael, CA.
My house purchase involved a professional trustee, an absent listing agent, multiple offers, and a couple of code violations that needed to be corrected. Cameron Platt handled every aspect of the purchase with care and expertise, making sure that everything went as smoothly as possible. I was very pleased with the experience.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Sausal Creek, Oakland, CA.
Cameron recently helped us sell our Oakland home, and we were very happy with the experience. He marketed the house very well, and secured multiple offers over our asking price. Our transaction involved a short sale, which Cameron and his team handled competently despite very non-responsive lenders. We will definitely consider hiring Cameron when we are ready to buy another house, and would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends. Throughout this often stressful process - Cameron and his team were always there to assuage any concerns and bolster our confidence that all would end well; and it did.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $225K in Oak Knoll-Golf Links, Oakland, CA.
"Cameron's advice was invaluable when I purchased an investment property recently. I have used other real estate agents before, but none of them compared to Cameron. He's a former attorney, which really shows when you see how he negotiates. In addition, he has a deep knowledge of the local market that is lacking in many other agents. Despite all that, Cameron has a very easygoing and friendly nature that made the whole process seem very easy. I will be calling him up when I am in the market to purchase another property for sure."

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Alameda, CA.
Cameron is the hardest working Realtor we know. From the minute we said that we were interested in buying a house, he worked with us all hours of the day and night. Even coming to our place in the dark and rain to get a contract signed so we could place an offer immediately. We were pregnant, had very specific interests in where we wanted to live and what kind of house we wanted. We appreciated very much his knowledge of the legal aspects of real estate and it was clear that he has good working relationships with other Realtors. He was always prompt in getting offers in and getting ahold of us. He was awesome at discerning with us what a good house was and what a good deal looked like. Now the baby is eight months old; we are in the exact neighborhood we wanted, in a house we love, that meets our needs. All thanks to Cameron.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $700K in Upper Dimond, Oakland, CA.
We were introduced to Cameron Platt through friends who highly recommended him. Upon meeting Cameron, we immediately felt comfortable and put at ease. We were first time home buyers and had many questions and concerns which he was able to answer thoroughly and with patience. Cameron was able to quickly understand our priorities in finding a home and successfully led us to a home that not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We were surprised to find our home as quickly as we did and his expertise became even more clear as he held our hands, explaining all of the steps, as we entered into our contract. While in contract, he advocated for us and continually provided a knowledgeable perspective. We are incredibly grateful for his assistance and have been happily living in our home for four years.

We have maintained contact with Cameron since we have purchased our home. He has come over to advise us as we have considered both small changes and larger scale projects. His knowledge of real estate has provided us with a valuable perspective as we have made updates and improvements to our home. We are continually impressed by his know-how and are grateful that he has been such a valuable resource in not only assisting us in the purchase of our home but also it's improvements.

Bought a home in 2001.
We recently relocated to Oakland from New York, and were referred to Cameron by another local agent. We fell in love with a house in Montclair and were determined to make it ours, despite multiple other offers from interested buyers. Cameron pulled out all the stops in presenting our offer, and managed to convince the sellers to choose our offer over all of the others. The transaction was very challenging, but Cameron was with us every step of the way, making sure that we were comfortable with the process and protecting our interests. He even bought us a home warranty as a closing gift, which we have already used when the refrigerator unexpectedly went out. We would definitely recommend Cameron to other buyers who want the very best in the business.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $575K in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA.
Cameron sold our home in the Redwood Heights area of Oakland via short sale. We were impressed with his deep knowledge of the short-sale process and his patience explaining that process to us. Despite the first set of buyers getting cold feet, Cameron was unflappable, and continued to aggressively market our house to prospective buyers. We ended up selling the house for over the asking price, and even got some money from our lender to help with our moving costs. We would definitely refer Cameron to friends, and look forward to working with him when we are ready to buy again.
