What do Clients Say?
I hit the jackpot when I was referred to Jim and Ann Marie! Their local knowledge and candid feedback helped me craft a successful purchase on a wonderful home for my family. Now I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are ethical, smart, market-savvy, timely, and happen to be really nice people who genuinely care about their clients."— Laura Crosby - Former Apple Executive - Alamo, California
Thank you, Jim and Ann Marie, for the world record close on my home! On the market for 10 days and then only a 5 day close. The marketing, target strategies, experience and overall execution were brilliant.— Maureen Richardson, Certified Financial Planner, Walnut Creek, California
"We are grateful for you and the Bay Area Team's constant attention to the details of selling our home for a price that exceeded our expectations. And, we are having the time of our lives with the equestrian property you helped us purchase in the Tassajara Valley as our next home. We never imagined how it would turn out. Thank you!"- Lance Fox, Vice President, Wells Fargo Private Banking, California / Nevada
It was a true Godsend that you were one of the Realtor teams I interviewed for listing our home in Ruby Hill Country Club. When you told me the first day that you would help me do the work to get the house prepared to sell, I could have cried tears of joy. You were like an angel sent to me from heaven. Having your contractor to partner with me on the to-do list was really key. And then your delightful stager made it easy to completely give myself over to the process. And, well, as they say, the proof is in the pudding. My property sold for more than what some other agents told me we could expect. And the buyer wanted all the furnishings as well! I could not have asked for a better outcome. Thank you both for the fabulous outcome you achieved!EC and Susan Sykes, Oil & Gas Executive, Corporate Relocation, Pleasanton, California
Jim Walberg and Ann Marie represented us in the sale of equestrian ranch. We found them to be incredibly professional and knowledgeable when it comes to country properties. It takes a unique Realtor to have the interest and background to truly represent the value of the equestrian property we created. They had exceptional communication with us and consistently went the extra mile including coordinating contractors, assessing maintenance and keeping the house and property ready to show even after we moved out of the country. We felt that they cared for our property and our interests as if it was their own.Jim Gilliland, President, Leith Wheeler Investment Capital, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
