Hear From My Clients

Thank you, Arlene, for helping with my first home purchase! Your support and kind guidance made me feel comfortable as a first-time homebuyer. There was no pressure to set unnecessarily high offers, but you also offered a realistic recommendation for what would make a sure-win offer! Your experience and network opened opportunities for me to move into homeownership!

Arlene was a pleasure to work with. She listened to us, and clearly understood our requirements, alerting us when the perfect house popped up. She got us in to review the property BEFORE it hit the market. She kept us updated on the closing process, easing any stress. Thanks to Arlene, we are now living in our dream home!

" Arlene has been an absolute pleasure to work with and here are just a few reasons why: She made time for us: Arlene was always available for a call or to meet up at a listed house. She would clue us in on places that she thought we would like, which is how we eventually found our home (off market). She is patient: We gave Arlene a general timeline over which we planned to get more aggressive in our offers over the course of about a year. It ended up taking over a year for us to find place but Arlene was always patient with us. She thinks outside the box: When we expressed an interest in looking further afield, beyond Alameda at the Oakland market she drove us around to a bunch of listings in several neighborhoods to give us a sense of their differences and share her insights. We had a great time! She’s got her ear to the ground (figuratively): She’s got a good presence in Alameda and was able to show us a hand full of off-market properties. "

I had the pleasure of having Arlene assisting me in acquiring a property in Oakland. I am not a newbie of the real estate business, which has been my preferred investment in the US and abroad. Arlene works with her heart! It is unseen in this field. She truly cares about her clients and makes an effort to understand their personality, likes and needs. Arlene worked relentlessly for me (I am not an easy client) until we found the right property. She is thorough, knowledgeable, very patient and extremely meticulous when it comes to the myriad of disclosures and real estate documents. Having worked with other realtors in the past, I really noticed a big difference in style; Arlene definitely places her client’s satisfaction before her gain; she found the right property for me at a price that was considerably below my budget. I ended up saving hundreds of thousand of dollars without renouncing at the home features I cared for; I have never met such a generous professional before.

"Arlene is a fantastic realtor. Our family would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the East Bay. After years of looking, going through multiple realtors, getting frustrated with the market and almost giving up, Arlene landed us our home within a few months. Arlene is dedicated, easy to get in touch with, had answers to all of our questions and gave us great advice as first time home buyers. She immediately understood our home needs and didn’t stray to from our requirements during the search. As first time home buyers, she made the process as pain free as possible and we couldn’t imagine going through the process with anyone else. Thanks again, Arlene! We’ve forever grateful."
