      Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $775K in Orinda, CA.
      Geri actually started dealing with my parents 6,7,8 (??) years ago and kept good follow up/through even though my Mom had no real intention of moving. I thought the commitment and understanding that she demonstrated throughout those years was excellent. She was/is familiar with the apprehensions of elders going to a new environment, which is very difficult to deal with. Her ability to assist with these hard, emotional things was priceless and reassuring.

      After several years passed and my Dad had moved out, Geri assisted with all aspects of readying the house for sale. The Home and property was in serious disrepair and much attention was needed. Because Geri was physically closer to the house location in Orinda, than my husband and I in Pleasanton, more often than not, she was my eyes, ears and voice with the contractors out there....and when we had to "play hardball" with a flooring contractor whose work we were not satisfied with,she was right there by my side.

      In regards to the actual sale, Geri had located an investor who was in the business of buying, improving and selling homes. When we had negotiated a price that was an amount that my Dad would need to sustain him (with investments, etc.) in his assisted living situation, we looked no further. My husband and I both felt the advice and planning of all things was spot on and that her business acumen relating to the market, cycles, comps, etc. was also accurate and something that we reviewed on an ongoing basis.

      She was always there to help, no matter what - even with cleaning out closets and attics, throwing things into the dumpsters and at the Estate Sale. Following the Estate Sale, Geri coordinated with a company to come and pick up the remaining items and donate what they could with a receipt going to my Dad.

      This was the home I grew up in and at times, this process was very emotional and certainly overwhelming, as I am the only child. Having Geri there with a knowledgable and guiding hand was invaluable.

      In summary, Geri is a perfectionist (like me), I trusted her with everything, every step of the way and if we had to do it all over again, we would use Geri again without question.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $1.125M in Lafayette, CA.
      Geri helped my wife and I a decade ago to find the house within our desired parameters. Most importantly, she patiently listened to what we were seeking and responded with choices that were not as easy or profitable as those she was most familiar with and incented to suggest. As we went off the beaten path with our choice, she advised us about issues to consider. While everyone has conflicts of interest in the real estate broker field, she was transparent with us about her preferences vs. ours.  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $575K in Pleasant Hill, CA.
      Geri assisted me with both the purchase and sale of my home. She is highly knowledgeable, always professional and responds immediately to any questions or concerns. When I purchased my home, she was able to negotiate a $20,000 allowance back to me due to an issue with a retaining wall. When I sold my home seven years later, she had insightful ideas on staging and marketing that enabled me to sell my home at a profit at one of the most difficult points in the real estate market. I couldn't be happier with her services or have more confidence in her abilities.  MoreLess
