Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Walnut Creek, CA.
Kevin and Naomi helped me to buy a house recently. They were also the agent when my sister-in-law bought her home last October (10 months ago). What puts this dynamic duo apart from the rest of the agents is, among others, their team work. Though they do often cover for each other, Kevin does a lot of the field work while Naomi handles the paper work. I never realized how much value an agent can add until I used this team. They really go all out to get the most our for their client. I think by concentrating on their own areas, they've gotten really good at what they do. I was genuinely surprised at the attention they paid to the most minute details. Plus they are just great people. We live near by and run into them time to time, and it is always a pleasure. I would certainly use them again for my next purchase.

Craig Taylor was a fantastic in finding a great property in Oakley for my family. This was a short sale and Craig guided us through this process. Although it was a long procedure Craig made it a smooth transaction. He was very knowledgeable about the short sale process. If I had to do this over again Craig would be the one that I choose in finding my family a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Dublin, CA.
We had an opportunity to work with Dana Grant as our agent for helping us find a first home for ourselves in the Bay Area. Dana was very quick to respond to our questions, very organized, and accommodating even on a short notice during several occasions. With the help from Dana, we were able to find and close the deal on our new home in under 10 weeks, which is very impressive in the current housing market.
She understood our requirements early on and sent us the listings accordingly. She kept us informed on the next steps during the three short weeks of escrow, sent paperwork on time, and was very quick to answer our questions in great details.
Overall, she was very pleasant to work with and we didn't feel pressurized into making decisions with any properties or the offer at any point. We recommend Dana Grant and the EastBayPro team with full confidence and satisfaction.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Oakley, CA.
Dana Grant is an awesome realtor! Very heedful, accommodating, flexible, and understanding to her client's needs and wants. She makes herself available to her clients with prompt responses and great communication skills. She did a commendable job of pleasing us, by finding us the perfect home to bring our child into. She went out of her way to work with our schedule and understood we were under a time crunch (seeing we're expecting), and followed through by finding us a home, in time to get settled into it. Thank you so much Dana! If the future permits, we would LOVE to work with you again!!

Showed home in 2013 in Pacheco, Martinez, CA 94553.
Kevin and team replied promptly to all inquiries and questions. Better then that, they provided honest and meaningful information about the houses I was interested in. They understood what I was looking for and know the market very well. On the day that we were going to look for houses, Heather did last minute research and found a few more houses that I'd be interested in. Afterwards she did market analysis on comparable houses in the market to find what the house would really sell for. I really trust this team, they handle their business with professionalism and it was a pleasure working with them. I highly recommend their services.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Kevin and Naomi are a great husband and wife team. It was a pleasure to work with both of them and i feel it was the best decision we ever made with our real estate needs. Both of them are extremely informative about real estate in the bay area and incredibly patient taking the time to explain all details and provide their expert opinion.
I started out looking at Bay area real estate couple years ago however at the time i was passively looking and nervous about buying as the market was collapsing every month. I was working with another agent back then and every time we presented an offer it was not accepted probably due to either my agents lack of knowledge or agent educating me on how the market was swinging. In either case I was unhappy with the results I was getting and decided to work with Kevin and Naomi based on recommendations I saw online.
Its been a tough market with low inventory since last year but Kevin and Naomi were persistent in their search and helped me find a home that i liked. I was very picky, in that i wanted a house in a certain community and under a certain budget which Kevin/Naomi helped me find. I am certainly very grateful to them and cannot recommend anyone else better to work with for all of your real estate needs. Good luck on your search.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Pacheco, CA.
Kevin and Naomi were great to work with. Even though buying a house can be frusterating, they kept us motivated and always kept us up to date with current listings. They were also able to place in a home in the exact neighborhood we wanted. If I ever had to purcahse a home again, I would definetley use Kevin and Naomi, and would highly recomend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Walnut Creek, CA.
Kevin helped us sell a rental unit that needed extensive renovation after the last set of tenants moved out. He coordinated with the contractor and the property manager and made this all happen and we got top dollar, to boot.
It was an excellent experience all around and I would highly recommend Kevin and Naomi to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
