Gina Piper
Elation Real Estate
About Gina

Gina was born into a real estate family but had no desire to make real estate her career, so she earned her degree in clinical nutrition at Cal Poly. During her senior year, she obtained her real estate license as a way to pay off debt before embarking on her envisioned career of helping people to heal through nutrition. (Health and wellness remain huge priorities for Gina. Yoga, anyone?) Gina spent an entire year literally knocking on doors (and, boy, does she have some stories to tell!) before she sold her first home. And, that was all it took. She’s never looked back from helping her first client and has been helping people in the Tri-Valley ever since. Gina’s true calling and passion is philanthropy, and she is involved through several channels. Currently the Chairman of the Board of the Valley Humane Society in Pleasanton, Gina is able to focus her energy on improving the lives of animals, which is a cause truly near and dear to her heart. Gina and her husband have hosted the much-anticipated “Party for the Pooches” at their home for five consecutive years, and have raised over $100,000 for the Valley Humane Society. She is also an active member and past president of the Pleasanton North Rotary Club, which is involved in helping victims of sex trafficking, assisting veterans, providing wheelchairs to people in third world countries, helping battered women, and numerous other worthwhile causes. She is proud to have received The Business Philanthropy Award by the City of Pleasanton and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate in 2018 as a result of her efforts. In her free time (That’s actually very funny! Free time?), Gina enjoys hanging out with her husband and their two pups — Perla, an adorable and snuggly white boxer, and Frankie, a shy but sweet Italian Greyhound-Chihuahua rescue. You can often find them at their favorite beach in Half Moon Bay, hiking on the Pleasanton Ridge, or relaxing in Downtown Pleasanton.

Tess Pollitz
Tessellation Real Estate
About Tess

Tess Pollitz has continued to grow her reputation over the past two decades and is known as a hands-on, responsive agent that provides outstanding guidance and results. She’s among the top 1% of real estate agents in the San Francisco Bay Area and has closed hundreds of homes. Most of her buyers and sellers come through referrals, as previous clients are quick to praise her service, commitment, and willingness to stay in communication throughout the process. With her significant experience in preparing and flipping properties, Tess brings professionalism, enthusiasm, a unique perspective, and problem-solving skills to the table as she helps her clients navigate the complex real estate market. Tess also brings a keen eye for design, creativity, strong negotiation skills, and solid project management to each transaction, which gives her clients a distinct advantage. Her deep understanding of the local communities and neighborhoods enables her to identify issues and negotiate the best deals, and she utilizes top technology and marketing tools for both buyers and sellers. “There is no greater feeling to experience in real estate than handing over a key to a buyer for their new home or sharing the excitement and anticipation with the sellers when their home has been Tessellated: ready to go on the market for the big reveal — prepped and staged.” Tess and her team have solid experience in staging and designing homes, and she has a consistent record of preparing and selling homes for top dollar in eight days or less. In fact, she’s regularly ranked among the top five agents in the region for fewest days on the market, and her sales-to-list price ratio, a figure that expresses how much a home sells for, is consistently higher than other top-producing agents in her area — so much so that they often contact her to ask for her secret. But it’s not just Tess’ expertise and ability to achieve results that defy market trends that keep her clients coming back. Tess understands that buying or selling a home is an exciting and draining experience, and she takes the time to ensure people understand their options so they can make confident, informed decisions. Most importantly, if Tess gives advice, it’s based on factual information, extensive research, and detailed market and pricing analyses. And if Tess tells you she’ll do something, you can rest assured that it will be done. Tess also has a drive for excellence, which has pushed her to continue her real estate education. In addition to her extensive knowledge of the local market, Tess is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative® (ABR®) and Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®). Many of her clients are moving up or downsizing in the Bay Area, and she also works with luxury estate owners, first-time homebuyers, and investors. Her family is her life, and Tess and her husband take joy in watching their three children pursue their own passions. Her sincere desire to help others means that Tess can often be found volunteering at food banks and soup kitchens, and in her free time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, renovating homes, and hiking in the beautiful Bay Area.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Clayton?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Clayton?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Clayton, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Clayton?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Clayton to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Clayton is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
