Our Busy Third Quarter Was Just The Beginning!

The summer selling season is notoriously fast paced with high turnaround. While we had a strong summer, it continued throughout the fall as well. With a total sales volume of $24,917,275 we had one of our best quarters yet! We owe our success to our fantastic clients. With their trust and support, we were able to make a lot of dreams come true!

We encountered families that were growing and needing an upsize while also meeting retired, empty nesters who were ready for new adventures. All the homes were loved by their respective families, but it was time for them to start fresh with new families ready to put their love into them.

A couple of the families we helped were looking to relocate. One was moving to the East Coast and needed to sell their home, while the other wanted to move to Pleasanton to take advantage of our top schools. Relocation can be difficult because maybe they’re no longer in the home they’re selling, or they don’t know different neighborhoods they’ll prospectively live in. We try to make the smoothest transition possible for these families from beginning to end.

We also had some first-time buyers. We love answering all their questions and explaining the process every step of the way. We also work with an amazing team of lenders and escrow officers that are wonderful at helping first-time buyers.

Getting a testimonial like this makes it all worth it:

“Simply the best team for buying a home. Very personal touch through the whole process, always reachable and great interactions. Highly recommended real estate team! Special call-out to Michelle, who did a fantastic job in keeping us updated and DeAnna, Kim and Amanda were outstanding in providing us info and additional details whenever needed. Just a fantastic experience.”

While inventory tends to slow down during fall and winter months, we always tell our sellers it’s better to be one of the few than one of the many. Fall and winter are great times to sell your home! With the current climate, we don’t know what is going to happen next year, but we know what is happening right now and can help guide you to get top dollar for your home.

We currently have 7 homes in escrow, and don’t see business slowing down anytime soon. Contact us for a free consultation. We’d love to discuss your next plan of action!

The Tri-Valley is a great place to live!

Marketing and selling high-end Luxury Homes in the Tri Valley is what we do best, but on this real estate journey, it’s all about the people we meet on the way, connecting them to each other and the places they call HOME.
