Where would Williams be without Sonoma, or Hewlett without Packard? When two entities come together, the combined offering can be more powerful, successful and valuable for customers than just one. Similarly, Colette Ford and Anja Plowright are your true partners in residential real estate, collaborating to help you realize your East Bay property dreams.

When you begin working with Colette and Anja, your experience and communication with them remains fluid from beginning to end. Since they keep abreast of every client's transaction and are constantly available, you can call either one of them to get an update. This collaboration reaps other benefits that no single agent can provide. With two pairs of feet, they can cover more areas simultaneously. In cases where writing offers and delivering timely information is critical, they can literally be in two places at once. With two minds, they can also provide a broader knowledge, analysis and opinion base. This is the winning difference.

With every solid partnership, there are also individual talents. Colette's background as a teacher, family counselor and professional coordinator provided great training for her 12 years as a top producing agent in the East Bay. Anja's many years of international marketing and design experience account for her keen business sense. Both Colette and Anja are extensively involved in their local community activities and combine a large network of clients and resources.

Over the years, Colette and Anja have also grown a team of the most talented and dedicated specialists – from mortgage brokers, photographers, engineers, contractors to designers – who they can call on at a moment's notice to ensure that a job gets done well. Their creative collaboration of ideas and plans help achieve the most results for you. While they understand that selling or buying a home can be stressful, Colette and Anja aim to make the experience as pleasant and rewarding as possible.

For Sellers, Colette and Anja provide:
Differentiated strategies for preparing a home for sale
Design savvy for making more valuable home improvements
Experienced marketing power, networking and outreach
Twice the personal presence at Open Houses and in responding to questions
Persistent, thorough and highly organized with a myriad of transaction details
For Buyers, their dual efforts also provide:
More in-depth property searches due to greater outreach and coverage in the Oakland and Berkeley markets; you receive twice as much knowledge
The ability to find the exact house, in the least amount of time for you, no matter what it takes
Highly skilled negotiating power due to their combined thinking
Quicker thinking and implementation of projects
Let Colette and Anja put your real estate dreams into action!

In 2008, Anja and Colette won the TOP TEAM Award at The Grubb Company, the certificate of highest recognition for their sales and performance!

Bought a home in 2014.

Anja and Colette were tireless champions in my search. Their knowledge of the market and insight into the process allowed me to be optimistic while having realistic and reasonable expectations. I have a new home and I couldn't be more pleased with the service and care they have provided.

Sold a home in 2011.

I asked then to both sell my home in south Berkeley, and they represented me in my purchase of a home in the Berkeley Hills. Their advice was right on point and the only reason I can't rate them higher in their negotiation skills is that the buyer of our south Berkeley home agreed immediately to on offer that was beyond our wildest dreams!

They were equally adept in helping us find a great finance option for the purchase of our new home, and provided us with great experts in inspecting and evaluating the home - eventually we offered (and were accepted) $75k less than the seller's asking price.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Gaskill, Oakland, CA.

Anja and Colette were an incredible help in purchasing our home in Oakland. They really go out of their way to advise, educate, negotiate and make it all happen - they truly care and have your back. It's such a relief to work with people who you can trust 100% to have your interests at heart. As a bonus, they are both adorable and have a great sense of humor - nothing ruffles them, they've seen it all before. These are seasoned professionals who really know the market and what it takes to buy or sell a home in the East Bay. We had some tricky timing and negotiating to navigate, and it all worked out great!  More Less
