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

Buying and selling your home are among the most important personal and financial decisions you will make. I serve my clients' needs on both fronts, by providing the professional guidance you need to achieve your financial goals while carefully accommodating your personal needs and preferences. I will manage all aspects of your home sale or purchase to provide you a rewarding transaction on your terms. If you plan to buy or sell a home in our neighborhood, please give me a call. I feel privileged to be a trusted advisor on whom my clients rely. It will be my pleasure to advise and assist you.

I offer two primary service models:

"CONCIERGE" SERVICE: I enjoy providing full "concierge" service to my many clients with full schedules or a preference for focusing on the larger details of the transaction: For example, for my seller clients, I propose a marketing plan and schedule and, once approved by my client, I secure multiple bids, schedule and provide on-site supervision for all aspects of preparing your home for sale by coordinating gardeners, repairmen, stagers, open houses and such. For buyers, I help prepare for your purchase by previewing all homes for you so as to limit the time you must invest in the search process, and will then manage all the "behind the scenes" details so you only need to participate in the critical steps of the escrow process. I maintain a high level of communication with my "concierge" clients, and come to the clients for approval of all key decisions I recommend.

GUIDANCE AND ADVOCACY: I work with many other clients who are eager to participate in every detail of their real estate transaction. For example, as a buyer, you may love touring open houses and want to see every house on your own. As a seller, you know your home intimately and may feel very comfortable continuing to handle all the details of the pre-marketing preparation. For these clients, I provide detailed information and guidance at each step in the listing or purchase process. I will educate you on steps in the process with which you may be unfamiliar, will answer any questions and point out any "red flags" I recognize based on my experience in this business. With the information, guidance, and support I provide, you will be able to make confident and informed decisions and remain actively involved in the steps to achieving your pragmatic and emotional goals.

I grew up in this community, and have worked in the real estate industry since 1997. Strong communications skills, professionalism, discretion and high ethical standards form the basis of my client service. My local knowledge and breadth of experience in real estate sales, investment, planning and development make me uniquely suited to help you achieve your real estate goals.

Ratings & Reviews

Best realtor ever! Classy, honest, exceptional knowledge of Oakland and Berkley area, excellent listener! From the first time I met her I knew she was our number one choice! After couple of showings, she knew exactly what we wanted. She possesses a great combination of softness and persistence that differentiates her from the typical "pushy realtor" stereotype. Her great qualities makes the house search process stress-free and the purchase process smooth and in control! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house in Oakland and Berkeley area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Piedmont Pines, Oakland, CA.

Lucy guided us in putting together a winning offer on our new home in Montclair in late Fall 2014. We were new to East Bay real estate and had been referred to her by a realtor we had worked with in San Francisco. Lucy has a vast knowledge of the East Bay market and easily handled all of our questions and concerns about the home, neighborhood, and pricing. She also has an excellent reputation and is trusted among East Bay realtors, which helped us enormously. She approached the entire process thoughtfully and carefully, and always made sure that we were comfortable with our our decisions and understood all of the important details. We love our new home, thank you Lucy!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $825K in Piedmont, CA.

I was a first time buyer, a single woman looking to buy a home on my own. Lucy listened to and respected my need for "no pressure" in contrast to the approach of some other realestate agents . I found her to be very tactful and diplomatic . She even made a "to do" list after the purchase was complete She , for example, provided me with the name of a gardener to mow my hilly lawn ; His charge was ( and is) extremely reasonable and he does a beautiful job with the lawn and more.. Purchasing a first time home can be an overwhelming endeavor ;It was for me, but Lucy made it smooth sailing. She maintained the delicate balance of being both warm and professional at the same time. . . .  More Less
