Client Reviews

Chris and I have remarked time and again at the hard work you put in for us, and how you made this remote purchase a reality. Your professionalism, attention to detail and availability helped me understand where the true value is to be had in the real estate business. Many thanks again. I will happily recommend you to friends, and hope to see you soon!

My husband and I recently sold our home, and we could not leave the area without singing the praises of the agent who made it all happen. Adele was invariably pleasant, professional, upbeat; she has an uncanny knack for handling difficult situations with grace and style. Adele helped us make decisions about improvements needed to reap the greatest dividends, referred competent contractors and was excellent at bolstering my spirits or calming me down as the situation required. I would unconditionally recommend Adele to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, competent, professional and personally delightful real estate agent.

Adele was fantastic to work with. She went above and beyond, expertly guiding us. In a tough market, Adele’s expert advice and guidance certainly helped us get the house we wanted. Adele is also incredibly kind, and she made this process pleasant and fun. No one knows this market better than Adele, and I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Adele was amazing from the start! She kept me focused when I derailed from my original goal and emphasized my initial vision. Adele turned a very stressful process into a reassuring and exciting experience. She made my dreams come true!

Adele was such a pleasure to work with! We had a tight time frame to get our house ready to sell and she was super organized and made it all happen quickly! We were thrilled with the sales price and recommend her highly.

Of all the houses we’ve lived in over the years (and there have been many!), this is the first one we can truly call home. Thank you, Adele, for making us so happy!
— buyers, Pinehaven Road, Oakland
Adele was a joy to work with. We were concerned about getting overwhelmed by the insane Bay Area market. She listened to us, guided us, helped with referrals throughout, and gave us the room we needed to make the right decisions for our family. I highly recommend working with Adele.
— Buyers, Mauritania Avenue, Oakland
Adele was responsive; patiently answered our many questions and shared guidance. After getting back from vacation she called us to say “I’ve found your home.” She really has her finger on the East Bay real estate pulse. Adele’s friendly demeanor and positive attitude... is very much like a super helpful family member, and that made everything that much less intimidating.
— Buyers, El Dorado Avenue, Oakland
She’s a 10+++! She went the extra mile, when she didn’t have to. Adele provided enhancement recommendations that were truly needed for the home, negotiated a good price and made it all happen smoothly. Adele was the best. Very professional, caring and knows the local market.
— Sellers, Manila Avenue, Oakland
Adele was absolutely wonderful to work with! Friendly, accessible, responsive. This was a very difficult transition for us, and she made it as stress-free as possible. Not only is she knowledgeable about the area, but her contacts in the field are extensive. We would recommend her without hesitation.
— Seller, Morpeth Street, Oakland
Adele exceeded my expectations in achieving the highest offer among comparable properties and despite a number of legal obstacles, including a defect in title and pending litigation.
— Seller, Canyon Oaks Drive, Oakland
Adele was key to making our home purchase happen. Without her, I doubt we would have been the successful bidder.
