  • Andrea listed and sold my home

      We are very, very fortunate to have Andrea. We are demanding clients yet she is ever so patient with us. She is truly a professional. She could have taken the easy way out and not restaged our property but she did not do so. She took the hard way to do the place over and staged our property. She did a lot of hard work behind the scene without bothering us with the details. We really appreciate her for her hard work and effort in getting in the contractor, the stager, the gardener, etc. The photography was excellent in showcasing our property. She has the pulse of the whole market in our area and was very accurate in her assessment and pricing. What she told us, she delivered. She is someone whom we can trust. We are very pleased with Andrea's excellent service and she deserves our respect. Wonderful and amazing service.

    • Andrea listed and sold my home

        Andrea's Knowledge and experience of the east bay is very strong. What impressed me was her package she handed to me on our first visit, the comps, market and appraised estimate of my house where on heavy magazine stock and in a book form ! And I had not even hired her yet. So if this was how she handled herself professionally without the listing.....I knew I would get a high quality representation with her. Her team was always available and replied quickly. It was not easy choosing which renovations to do but she walked me through the process without any pressure. When it came time to list it she already had agents who were interested and received a bid for the property before it even went on the market. I suggested a counter and she suggested a counter above the number I had in mind. Because of her knowledge and experience in the housing market she knew what to counter at ~ final sale was well over original asking price. Extremely satisfied by the services she provided. Highly recommend.

      • Andrea listed and sold my home

          Andrea was awesome from start to finish. When we first met with her to discuss selling our house, she took a consultative approach to understand our needs and objectives. Andrea gave us sound advice on marketing approach, factors that could affect the near-term housing market, pricing, timelines, etc. She worked closely with the design company to keep renovations within our budget, while also making the house look fantastic inside and out. Throughout the entire process, Andrea as great with communication and as offers came in, she did a great job managing negotiations and helping us through a flawless close of escrow. We trusted Andrea's experience and attention to detail and she delivered! We highly recommend her.

        • Andrea helped me buy a home

            Andrea Gordon is an excellent agent. She came highly recommended by a colleague, and now I know why. We are third-time home buyers, but this was the first time we purchased a place in California. Andrea helped us understand the differences between buying in California versus Washington D.C., where our first two houses were. She walked us through all of the steps and made sure we asked all the right questions. She also knows everybody, so if we ever wanted more information, she would simply call people up and get us the info we needed. When we were at open houses we would get asked “who are you working with?” and as soon as we said Andrea Gordon, everyone knew exactly who she was! That was a great feeling. Andrea knows all of the Oakland/Berkeley neighborhoods and their markets. She has a nose that can sniff out water and mold and has an eye for a good deal or opportunity. She is super responsive and has a terrific Executive Assistant, Shawna Jones. If you want someone who is going to protect you and your interests, Andrea Gordon is who you want to work with! I highly recommend Andrea!

          • Andrea listed and sold my home

              Andrea was instrumental in the sale of our former home and purchase of our current home. We met her by chance at an open house and it was a meeting that changed our lives. She is extremely knowledgeable about the East Bay and is such a warm and caring person that you know you are in good hands. Andrea suggested what we should do to help house sell and her team came together and got things done quickly. Without her connections, we never would have been able to purchase our current home. She listens to you and your concerns. She is very responsive and a true advocate for you. She will give you her honest recommendations and is very patient during a time when your patience can be pushed to the limit. We can't recommend her highly enough!

            • Andrea listed and sold my home

                Andrea and her team provided superb, end to end service to us in a challenging estate sale situation. In addition to her deep knowledge of the market, she provided resources across a myriad of issues, always quickly and responsively. We recommend Andrea and her team unreservedly!

              • Andrea helped me buy a home

                  Extremely knowledgable, always available, and knows the process. She came highly recommended, and still exceeded expectations. I think it is fair to say we were able to find and close on a property much quicker than anticipated due to her teams expertise.

                • Andrea helped me buy a home

                    Andrea Gordon was recommended to us by a relative of a close friend who was very enthusiastic about her. She sold his home, helped him to get another one, and worked with his daughter to get her a house. Not knowing much about the Californian real estate market, we were not disappointed when meeting Andrea – she knows the Berkeley area and the real estate business very well. She answered all our questions and gave us a lot confidence in her capabilities and her detailed knowledge of the East Bay Real Estate market. We searched with her help for about three months and finally got the right property. She helped us to find and select mortgage brokers, then, she guided us through the whole buying process. Thank you, Andrea, for your good advice and your support.

                  • Andrea listed and sold my home

                      When it came time for us to sell our Oakland home, it was no question who we’d choose as our agent: Andrea Gordon! Having worked with Andrea as our agent when we purchased the home many years prior, we knew from experience the competence and care with which Andrea handles business. She is a pro in every sense. Not only does she know the market; she also knows how to work with people to get things done, smoothly and happily! She sold our home in the middle of a pandemic and showed ingenuity in doing so. The entire process was seamless, which is particularly remarkable considering the circumstances in which it took place.

                    • Andrea listed and sold my home

                        We worked with Andrea to buy our home as well as sell it a couple years later. She's not only an excellent agent with incredible experience and a strong reputation, she's also a great person who we enjoyed working with. She's an honest straight shooter, who will go to bat for you. We would without question work with her again.

                      • I can't conceive of finding a better agent for anyone trying to buy or sell in the East Bay than Andrea Gordon.I've bought 4 homes in the Bay Area and was lucky enough to find Andrea for the purchase of my most recent one. Over the course of our four month search, Andrea consistently found us properties that matched our criteria before they went on the market, properties that were undervalued (incredibly rare in such a hot market), and correctly predicted the final sale price with multiple offers on a regular basis.I've never worked with a realtor that has her depth of contacts - it was rare for us to go view property where the seller's agent hadn't worked with her or didn't know of her. She was able to 'talk turkey' with agents and ascertain minimum acceptable offer would be and really made me feel like I had added leverage when it came time to make a bid. When our mortgage application hit a snag, she even had contacts within our lending institution that were able to kick start the process and get us our loan closed quickly.We had four people involved in the buying decision, which should send a shiver down the spine of anyone, but once she'd gotten to know all of us, she quickly narrowed down our search area and never wasted our time on properties that wouldn't fit our needs.She was able to navigate and reconcile differing opinions, offered a shoulder to cry on when needed, helped us figure out what we wanted without being pushy, and when we finally found the home of our dreams, closed on it like a killer.I really don't think we could have gotten our dream home without her and the experience was a lot less stressful knowing we had her in our corner.I have learned to trust her instincts and knowledge implicitly. The next time I am in the market, there will only be one phone call I make.

                      • Wow! Andrea Gordon is the best! She is a wonderful, knowledgeable industry leader. And now, she is a friend.Andrea sold our Oakland Hills house during the pandemic with one open house. She negotiated us through a deal with a buyer stuck halfway around the world on lockdown and she got us the top of the market price (as other home prices around us fell).She even managed to negotiate a backup buyer twice to keep our buyer motivated. She is truly AMAZING! I absolutely recommend her to anyone interested in selling their house in the Oakland/Berkeley area.

                      • Andrea took on our failed listing and put together a fantastic marketing plan that brought in a flood of buyers. We found her during the first listing where she expressed how much she loved our house. At that point we knew we had the wrong agent and listed with her in the fall.Andrea staged our home and advertised above and beyond our previous agents efforts, and we successfully closed escrow at the end of March despite the COVID challenges.Andrea is motivated and energetic, and, she has tremendous negotiating skills. We highly recommend her and her staff.

                      • After interviewing several realtors, we chose Andrea Gordon. And, she was the absolutely right choice. Andrea prepped and readied our home for sale in just two weeks, and got it listed the weekend before shelter-in-place mandates went into effect.Undaunted, Andrea worked creatively to market our home, and leveraged technology for a win/win sale for us and the buyers.In this time of uncertainty, Andreas expertise was indispensable in gauging risk and taking action.

                      • Andrea Gordon is truly the best and one of a kind. She puts her clients first, and her knowledge on the real estate market surpasses any realtor I have met. If I could give more than 5 stars, I most certainly would! Andrea will be my family's realtor for life.

In these uncertain times, she worked tirelessly to help us purchase our first house.Thanks to her excellent advice, we ended up winning the bid on our dream house, against six other offers!Andrea and her associate John were incredibly helpful throughout the home buying process especially for first-time buyers. Incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, and brimming with great advice.I honestly don't think we would have landed this house without them.We can't recommend Andrea and her team highly enough!"

                      • This is a tough market for sales of condos Andrea was highly solution oriented, responsive and very flexible.Andrea fully engaged in helping my neighbor with the exterior colors, and when I wanted to push back the closing date, she contacted the buying agent without hesitation.When I noticed a problem with the 3D virtual tour, she had the photographer and staging company re-shoot the property to show it as a two-bedroom even though its legally a one-bedroom.At every step, Andrea was there, guiding the process, providing her expertise and solving issues. I recommend Andrea and her excellent team highly.We can't recommend Andrea and her team highly enough!
