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

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!

      Sold a home in 2014.
      Every thing was perfect with this team and I cannot state how impressed I was with the quality of service, from start to the end of the sale. Every call was answered or returned in minutes! By far, the best experience I have ever had with real estate dealings. Paul Motter

      Bought a home in 2014.
      Ford/Plowright provides truly local expertise and insight. They have working relationships with other local agents that span decades, which is a tremendous asset. They are able to gauge what it takes to make an offer attractive and can even negotiate to get your offer a second look when it may otherwise have been dismissed. As a team, they were able to cover each other when one was not available and they both have great personalities so it was great to work with both of them, and you never felt like there was a communication gap between them.Talking to one of them was just like talking to both of them, we never felt like we had to fill in information for either one. And for the most part, during the hectic times of figuring out the offer and then the escrow, they were available to help guide us through the process. Overall, if you know your limits and preferences, Ford/Plowright can help you successfully get what you want.  MoreLess

      Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in Paradise Park, Oakland, CA.
      My husband and I recently bought our first home in the NOBE area. From the beginning of our house searching I knew I wanted Colette and Anja to be our agents. I first met Colette at one of the open houses that we randomly went. Being first-time-home-buyers we had a lot of questions and Colette answered our questions so sincerely at the site and we had a good impression of her. When we actually got together to go over our house hunting process, it was confirmed that the first impression we got was so true. They knew the area and the current market situation very well. Also what we really liked about them was how frank and honest they were with us. As first-time-home-buyers we were anxious about pretty much everything (even after all that researching and reading of online postings and reviews!) But whenever I talked to them (they were super responsive!), Colette and Anja would take time to patiently explained to us what was going on and what will be the next step. That helped us to go through and understand the process easily and so smoothly. Another thing I want to mention is that they were so professional. Not only did we realize that through our experience with them, but also the whomever we met in the industry (mortgage broker, inspector, seller, etc) kept telling us how Colette and Anja are and are known as one of the top agents in the area. We are so happy that we got to work with them for this important step of our life. And we highly and highly recommend them!  MoreLess
