Daniel Stea is Stea Realty Group (SRG)'s founder and managing attorney. Daniel has been one of the top producing East Bay Realtors since 1997 and the only one who is also an experienced real estate attorney who founded his own brokerage. His services are free to Buyers and do not cost Sellers any more than the typical real estate commission. If you need to buy or sell a residential or investment property — or to simply talk about the "pros and cons" of doing so — he is a nice guy and is here to help.

Although he remains a licensed real estate attorney, nowadays he devotes nearly 100% of his time to buying and selling properties on behalf of his clients and managing the growing number of Realtors which his company now employs.

Daniel's relatively modest lifestyle allows Stea Realty Group to pay its Realtors above the industry standard while at the same time donating a large percentage of its profits to local charities.

Team reviews

When we sold our family home, we made a great choice selecting Daniel at Stea Realty Group. His expertise as a broker and lawyer was instrumental in the success of our transaction from start to close. Daniel worked diligently to negotiate a price that we wanted from our current tenants all while showing patience and enthusiasm. Yali's knowledge of DocuSign expedited our need to make multiple trips to an office to sign paperwork. In our business dealings it is imperative to work with professionals who have sound business practices, pay attention to detail, exhibit respect and kindness. Daniel and Yali met our expectations and we truly valued our partnership.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $925K in Piedmont Pines, Oakland, CA.

Daniel and Yali managed to move us into our dream home in about two months. For anyone who knows the Bay Area real estate market, that probably says enough. But I'll continue. Daniel and Yali spent many, many hours with us discussing the home buying process, the local market, various neighborhoods, our wish list, our financial limitations, and any number of other topics. They never once pressured us to make an offer or to move the process forward; they could not have been more patient and supportive. They continued to send us listings that they thought we might like, and, when we were finally ready, they helped us craft offers - talking with the listing agents and using their extensive knowledge to help us put together the most attractive offer possible. Ultimately, we beat out a higher offer on our dream home on the basis of Daniel's presentation of our offer (he did this in person rather than by email). They are responsive, knowledgable, kind, good people. We don't plan to ever move, but if we do we'll have Daniel and Yali sell our house and buy the next one. We recommend them without reservation.  More Less

Bought a home in 2015 in Bushrod, Oakland, CA 94609.

I worked closely with Daniel and Yali on my recent home purchase. Given the rather mad market conditions in the Bay Area, I was keen to find an estate agent who would exercise patience with my diligence and questions, and, more importantly, who I felt I could trust; someone who just wasn’t in a rush to get me into a place, take their commission and move on. My experience with Daniel and Yali was overwhelmingly positive. They spent a considerably amount of time and effort advising me, and dealing with lots of detailed, often obscure, questions. Additionally, when there were homes that I showed an interest in, where they had a concern, they made those concerns clear to me. Clearly, a less trustworthy team could have just got me in the home, taken their cut and gone off to the next. Whilst trust and confidence were my primary criteria, the level of service that I got from Daniel and Yali was just tremendous. They did some post-sale work on arranging for some re-flooring, which was really beyond what was required. I’d recommend them to anyone in the area looking for a good, trustworthy, estate agent  More Less
