Realtor in Albany

Hi - we are looking to move from Orinda to Albany and are wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a realtor in Albany.  We are eager to find a person who can talk about the neighborhoods and schools but also kids activities such as sports, etc.  For example, our 10 year old would want to join the local baseball league and it would be great if this person would be "dialed in" to those types of topics.

Thanks!

I highly recommend Jodi Nishimura. She is a longtime East Bay resident, a parent, and a very smart & savvy real estate agent. Plus she is a lovely person and pleasure to be around.

I recommend Jose Fernandez from Red Oak Realty.  He has lived in the East Bay all his life and is raising his son and daughter here.  I think his son is about your son's age. He is very dialed in. We had a great experience with him - he is just a really great guy to know in addition.

Talk to Declan Spring from Red Oak Realty; he does all of West Contra Costa County and also lives in Albany with his family. He helped us buy our house a few years ago and he was phenomenal! Helped us get a realistic sense of our price point; gave us his honest assessments of the houses and neighborhoods we looked at; when we got an offer accepted, he scheduled a home inspection literally within minutes of getting the call from the other realtor. Tell him Hannah & Alec sent you :)

We love Pam Oettel of East Bay Modern.  Wonderful and forthright.  In terms of kids activities, this changes all the time but what she doesn't know she will find out.

Hi - we worked with Kathleen Wilson (kathleen [at] eastbayhomeguide.com, 510 919 1712) and she was amazing! She lives in Albany as well and has kids at school here (a 7 and a 10 year old), so I am sure she can give you advice on everything you need :) I live in Albany too with a 10 and 8 year old - you are welcome to reach out to me as well, if you have some questions (npuchner [at] gmail.com - I can also give you my phone number if you email me, so we can speak too if that's easier). Our 10 year old son played baseball the last two spring seasons...

Best, Natascha
