We have worked with Eileen Townsend (About Eileen Townsend | Berkeley Real Estate Agent) on two occasions and found her to be excellent. She is diligent, responsive and very knowledgeable about the Berkeley market. 

Sheri Madden with Red Oak, got us two different  houses in only 3 offers (2013 and 2017, very competitive years, we did not overbid) , our "luck" was her pure skill, so many people i know have crappy realtors, she is absolutely amazing, will get you the house you want

We recently bought in Oakland and worked with Tracy Davis at Red Oak. She specializes in Berkeley and she is fantastic. She is so capable and calm. We love her!

We used Revelina Um. She was fantastic - on top of everything and super fun to work with. She became a close friend!

Yania Rodriquez is awesome. She is knowledgeable and will quickly understand what you are looking for and come up with options. She also has a good vision for what can be done with a house in terms of renovations, etc

We bought in late 2019 and used Hsuching Wintz from Red Oak Realty.  We loved working with her.  

She has a lot of knowledge about the Berkeley and surrounding areas and never pushed us to make any offers we weren’t comfortable with.  We took almost two years working with her to finally find the right house and she was super patient through it all!

highly recommend Hsuching!

We've had a great experience with Jenny Wang. She sold our house in Oakland and helped us buy a house in Berkeley in late 2020.

Ana Forest. The Best. Excellent personal service, based on my experience and that of others. Reviews here:

Definitely she was our realtor twice in 3 years and got us great homes; the last one was a tricky transaction and we won by 10k. 5 star

We bought a house about a year ago in Berkeley and used Leslie Bandy with Red Oak. She’s great! She’s super on top of things and responsive, has a great sense of humor, and is a master negotiator. I would highly recommend 

We loved our realtor, Julie Durkee at Winkler Real Estate —

Anita Becker is a magician. I am convinced we would not have bought our Berkeley home without her.
