  • Jeff showed me homes

      If you're looking for a real estate agent, especially as a first time home buyer, I strongly caution against working with Jeff Weissman. My husband and I worked with Jeff as first time home buyers and he definitely made the process stressful. His personality came off as aggressive, and I didn't get a sense that he had our best interests in mind. He was pushy and willing to do whatever it takes to get the sales, even if it meant overpaying or settling for a house that wasn't right for us. It was difficult for us to trust Jeff. My husband and I saw a house in a city we have never been to before. Jeff was adamant that we put in an offer the same day, even though we didn't like the location and we expressed our concerns to him. Instead, he pulled out all his sales tactics and tried to convince us that this house was the one for us and we won't be able to find anything better. Due to another investment opportunity at the time, our cash reserve was tight, so Jeff even suggested we reached out to our family to borrow money for the deposit. We were in no shape to put in an offer for that house, yet Jeff was pushing for us to sign the offer letter. That should have been our first red flag. We convinced ourselves to continue working with Jeff longer than we should have because he is a top producer. However, being a top producer means Jeff is extremely busy. He shows little interest in trying to help us navigate the home buying process. Jeff has never gone over a house disclosure with us nor has he ever explain any of the paper works we were signing. He prefers emailing a bunch of attachments and asking us to return the signed documents to him as soon as possible. Since he has been doing this for so long, I got the sense that he forgot how scary the home buying process can be for first time home buyers. He might see it as just another transaction, but as a buyer, it is most likely the biggest purchase I will ever make in my life. In the end, my husband and I decided to go with another real estate agent. It is night and day working with Jeff and our new agent. In the end, we purchased a lovely home. Trying to buy a house in the competitive Bay Area market generally means having to settle for a house that doesn't meet all your requirements. Fortunately, that doesn't apply to choosing a real estate agent.

    • We have worked with Jeff now buying two houses and selling two houses. Every time we work with Jeff we are reminded that he is knowledgeable, organized and attentive. Most importantly, we always feel that Jeff has our interests at heart rather and just pushing for a transaction. We strongly recommend Jeff!

    • Jeff provided excellent service in helping my brother and I sell our mother's home after she passed away. Jeff went above and beyond as a listing agent. We first consulted with Jeff during our mother's illness and he was very patient and understanding of our difficult situation. We ultimately did not list until after she passed, at which time Jeff jumped in as quarterback to assist us--both of whom live out of state--with the logistics of clearing out her house and making minor improvements for the sale. Looking back on his advice, all of it was sound and I think we arrived at the best outcome possible. He clearly knows the market and real estate strategy well. He is also tenacious. When the sale looked like the buyer would not be able to get their loan, he used his resources to help steer them in the right direction so they could complete the sale. We were very happy with Jeff's services and would not hesitate to recommend him.

      - Lee Hartman, Seller, Oakland CA
    • Jeff is a great realtor with extensive knowledge of the Bay Area housing market. He has successfully helped us purchase two homes in the East Bay. He creates realistic expectations and always delivers on his promise. It has been a pleasure working with Jeff and we would highly recommend!

      - Vicki Kaasa, Repeat Buyer, El Cerrito CA
    • Jeff helped my husband and I navigate the crazy San Francisco Bay Area real estate market, and after looking at a ton of properties he helped us buy the perfect home. We appreciated how well connected Jeff is, since he often alerted us to properties that might work for us that hadn't hit the market yet during the search. He also knew almost all the listing agents of properties we were looking at, which made the whole process easier. It took my husband and I a while to find the right spot, and Jeff was very patient with our first time home buyer nerves and barrage of questions.

      - Rachel Shahvar, Buyer, Oakland CA
    • It's easy to see why Jeff is one of the very best real estate agents in the country . Jeff worked tirelessly over several months to help my two co-owners and me renovate, list, and quickly sell our 107 year old arts and crafts home in the Glenview district of Oakland, CA for 35% over list price in an uncertain market. From our first meeting, I was struck by Jeff's outstanding knowledge of the market, his creative approach to addressing challenges, and his calm and kind demeanor. Where other agents I'd interviewed recommended quick, relatively cheap cosmetic fixes to get the property on the market at list prices that were in the high 6 figures, Jeff's strategy to embark on a substantial renovation resulted in a quick sale that garnered 35% over the (7-figure) list price. Jeff worked closely with the design and construction teams to ensure that all issues were quickly resolved all while keeping us owners apprised of the latest market news and emerging decisions. We've already referred one of our dear friends to him to sell her Oakland hills home and I'll be working with him again soon to buy my new home. You can't go wrong with Jeff!

      - Ingrid Schonfield, Seller, Oakland CA
    • Jeff really helped us with the process of buyinig our first home. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed learning about what worked best for us. Jeff also had great connections with lenders and title companies who had fantastic communication and clearly stated expectations. It made the process of buying a home less stressful. Overall, I would definitely recommend Jeff to people who are buying a home in the East Bay.

      - Amber Pinson, First Time Buyer, Richmond CA
    • As first time home buyers, my fiance and I were complete fishes out of water going into this. With Jeff's help and expertise, we were able to get the home of our dreams within 2 months of reaching out to him. We would absolutely recommend him to any friends and family looking to buy their first home or beyond.
