Linnette Edwards is the epitome of the perfect agent. In the age of Redfin and Trulia and the glut of information available online, it's hard to find an agent who really brings a lot of value to the housing search process. We had been using a different agent who didn't specialize in the Oakland/Piedmont area, but when we started to focus our search, our friends recommended that we talk to Linnette. The contrast was immediately apparent. Linnette is extremely knowledgeable -- about the area, the schools, the relative value of homes, the different agents in the area, and the strategies in home-buying. Each time we looked at a home together, she would point out aspects of the house that we hadn't noticed, and she was able to look past the superficial to assess the house's real value. She could identify when a house had underlying issues that had been covered up by careful staging ("lipstick on a pig") or when a house had hidden potential but didn't show well (the "ugly duckling"). We came to trust implicitly her opinion. As an added bonus, Linnette is just a great human being. She is warm and personable. We decided to put in a bid on a house at the last minute, and Linnette (who had left on vacation that morning after we had told her that we weren't going to bid) ended up putting together our contract in her car on a rush basis. She stayed upbeat and professional the entire time and never gave any indication that we had interrupted her day on the slopes. We really appreciate Linnette's honesty and integrity. She gave us great advice on what a home might be worth, as well as our chances of winning at a certain price, but she never gave a hard sell. We never felt pressure to bid more than we were comfortable with bidding or to bid on a house that we didn't like. We will recommend Linnette unreservedly to all of our friends and anyone looking for an agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Glenview, Oakland, CA.

I would highly recommend Linette to anyone making a real estate transaction. She has excellent marketing skills, and took me through the sales process from cleaning out the house to repairs, to staging to sale. Great knowledge of the local market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Millsmont, Oakland, CA.

I can't say enough good things about Linnette Edwards and her team!

To the new seller: If you are selling a car, what is the worst you could do in the deal? What would the best be? Well magnify the best times $90,000.00 and that is what Linnette and her team did for me! There is no better.

True story: I was regaling a friend of mine with the story of my home-sale and she said "you have a guardian angle." I replied "I do, her name is Linnette Edwards!"

Showed home in 2014 in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA 94602.

Linnette has been incredibly helpful to me and my husband. Despite the fact that we are not ready to sell our home and are only in the process of getting it ready for sale, she has provided us with great service. Linnette has connected us with people who can help with interior preparations as well as providing suggestions and contacts around garden preparation. She is engaging and accessible. I feel very lucky to have found her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Walnut Creek, CA.

We decided sell our house in Walnut Creek few months ago and we were referred to Linnette Edwards by our mortgage broker. Working with Linnette was straightforward and simple. Communication from her throughout the entire selling process was timely, brief, to the point, and honest. She has excellent knowledge of the real estate/market and the process, which allowed us to make quick and easy decisions. Her team basically did everything for us to be able to put our house on the market in three short weeks and sold it in two weeks for way over our asking price.. Linnette, Tammy and their entire team were pleasure to work with. We could not have had a better experience.

Bought a home in 2013 in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA 94602.

Linnette and her team are nothing short of fantastic. My experience in buying a home in this crazy bay area market took time - time that Linnette was patient to let pass, yet persistent in helping me keep my perspective. And she helped keep up my spirits when it seemed like there was nothing out there that matched my budget or my desires. She gets to know you and what you want - then helps you get it. We wrote multiple offers and every single time her guidance was completely spot on - she definitely has a great ESP when it comes to seeing how a deal will play out. She also has great relationships with those in this industry, which can help grease the gears on all things - loans, negotiations, etc. She even had wonderful guidance and ideas that improved the quality of the home I did get (tearing down the wall between the dining room and kitchen was THE BEST IDEA EVER, lady). All in all, she's amazing and you'll know she'll work hard with you, and for you, to get you into a great home! Thank you, Linnette!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Gaskill, Oakland, CA.

Linnette did a great job getting my house sold. She knew what needed to be done to get it ready for sale, and negotiated good prices for those services. She has great relationships with stagers, landscapers, photographer, etc., which makes the whole marketing process go very smoothly. While she is very busy, she is easy to get ahold of and takes time to answer questions and give advice. I would definitely use Linnette again.

Bought a home in 2013 in Berkeley, CA 94702.

We were first time homebuyers. Over a period of months, Linnette helped us get into any home we wanted to see. She and her team helped direct us to a lender (who was also fantastic) and made sure everything was in order in the event we found the right place. They helped us navigate the possibility of buying a short sale, advised us on bidding with specific knowledge of our target home/area, and helped us to understand how specific homes did/didn't fit our needs. Both Linnette's team and the inspector Linnette recommended were top-notch-- courteous, knowledgeable and available. Ultimately, we found a home that was in the process of listing. We owe it to Linnette's negotiation skills that we were able to bid preemptively and win the home.

Sold a home in 2011 in Mountain View, CA 94041.

Linnette was an excellent real estate agent. We were remote during the sale of our home and she handled everything masterfully, including repairs, landscaping, painting, staging, inspections, and all the other details related to selling our home. She was very responsive, and led as through the process, resulting in the successful sale of our home. Overall, we would highly recommend her to others.
