What’s like having us represent you?
Our sellers and buyers say it best through over 100 glowing letters, wonderful online reviews, and video testimonials.
I created the word cloud from the letters they’ve written.
When we meet, be sure to let us know which qualities are most important to you!
We’re particularly appreciative of our many client who return to us again and again, and refer them to their friends and family.
Ben & Jen asked us to represent them on 7 sales
Ira & Carol are extremely experienced and knowledgeable in many areas – market trends, neighborhoods, the real estate transaction, home inspection and preparation and negotiations. I think my favorite things about them is that they are good, honest professional people who have your best interest at heart.

We’re honored to receive referrals from delighted sellers and buyers
We represented the sellers of a home on San Lorenzo. The buyers (not our clients) were so impressed by what we did they referred us to family members who sold a home on Carmel, bought a home on Beverly, sold the home on Carmel, bought a home on Ordway, and sold their home on Beverly.
They, in turn, referred us to friends who bought a home on Miramar who asked us to sell their home when they relocated back east!
We later represented the San Lorenzo buyers when they bought a home on Thousand Oaks and then sold their home on San Lorenzo. And the Carmel buyers? They hired us to sell their home too!
We’ve sold many homes twice … and 670 Santa Rosa thrice

Here’s what Andrea and Michael wrote about how we sold this wonderful Thousand Oaks home for the first time:
It’s been many years since Ira and Carol sold our first home for us in Berkeley. They are amazing agents and great people. We’ve sold and bought many homes since that first time and no one compares!
How can we adequately express how pleasant it was to work with you both? You were, from the first time we met, completely reliable, intensely involved, and exceedingly competent in each step involved in the sale of our Berkeley home! You helped us to understand the present market situation, were creative in helping us to take advantage of that specific market and guided us ably into a contract which completely blew our socks off!
Andrea and Michael Scharff
And the rest of the story? 20 years later they returned to us and bought a beautiful Bernard Maybeck home near the Berkeley Rose Garden!
A few years later we sold 670 Santa Rosa again … and met Jim and Nancy at the open house.
When Jim and Nancy were ready to buy a home, the asked us to represent them. We learned that 670 Santa Rosa was coming back on the market … and sold it to them!
Jim and Nancy had to sell their San Francisco home first. We referred them to an excellent agent (we know wonderful agents all over the United States who took great care of them.
And the rest of the story? Andrea and Michael moved back to San Francisco … and introduced us to their cousin who had sold them their home. Chills went up my spine when I realized that was the same agent I’d referred Jim and Nancy to .. thereby connecting back with Andrea and Michael … who’s Thousand Oaks home Jim and Nancy bought years later!
We’ll take wonderful care of you too!
