My husband and I would highly recommend Anne Politeo, now of Marvin Garden Real Estate. She spent a day showing us around Berkeley, Kensington and Albany. If it weren't for her in-depth knowledge of the area and market, we wouldn't have been able to come to a decision about where exactly we wanted to raise our daughter. We're new to the country and she patiently explained the differences between cities and neighborhoods.
Having raised children herself and knowing what we're looking for as parents, she helped to narrow down our search. She was very honest about the houses on the market and didn't waste our time showing us houses that she knew were inappropriate.
A real pro.
We actually ended up buying a house through a different Realtor, but that was absolutely no reflection on Anne's capabilities. She did nothing wrong and did a whole lot right. Actually I think it was her educating us on the market and neighborhoods which made us look elsewhere for something quite different. So thanks Anne!

I'm a first time home buyer who recently bought a condo in Berkeley. Ann Politeo of Berkeley Home Real Estate was my agent and she did a wonderful job helping me every step of the way. she genuinely cared about making sure that everything about the condo was inspected and helped negotiate that many things be covered by the seller prior to close.
During our inspection period, she arranged for the usual general inspection but also arranged for a structural engineer to look at the place due to concerns around the earthquake retrofitting of the place. During the loan approval period, my lender was delaying the approval due to some new requirement regarding condo's. But Anne phoned up her contacts in the mortgage and underwriting business and found out that there was no such requirement. She followed up with my lender and applied just enough pressure for them to act quickly to get my approval processed.
Anne's determination and industry experience made my home-buying experience so much easier. I highly recommend Berkley Home Real Estate if you're in the market to buy a new home in the area.
"Thanks Anne, everything looks good on the closing statement. Also, I believe that the house looking so nice-staging and wood floors refinished--made it possible to sell it so quickly. You really pulled this all together and we BOTH appreciate how hard you worked. Thanks again."
" So far we are basically settled down. We, including our three children and their families, are very much satisfied with this new home. This satisfaction is due to your excellent and professional service. And best of all, the honesty and justice that you showed to all parties concerned."
