About Andrea

Representing Sellers Together, we’ll strategize to attract the right buyers for your property. My comprehensive marketing program is tried and true. It has been tested time and again, and the bottom line is that it works. During negotiations, I’ll protect your interests and yours alone, and as a result you’ll get the highest price and best terms for your home for what the market will bear. Representing Buyers I am tireless in my pursuit to find you what you want. I have the patience to work with you for as long as it takes to find the home that resonates with your taste and lifestyle. I thoroughly understand what it takes to get an offer accepted and escrow closed. Home buyers in the competitive East Bay market need an experienced and reliable advocate to protect their interests. Not only am I conscientious, careful, and mindful of your needs, but I will aggressively negotiate for you during escrow. Through many years of practicing real estate in the Bay Area, My personal relationships are very useful in getting you the property in a multi-bid situation.

Daniel W.
Winkler Real Estate Group
About Daniel

Hi, I’m Danny. Of course, I help clients buy and sell their homes. I also manage all phases of real estate marketing and development, including multiple large sales management projects for various Bay Area builders and developers. I love what I do. And when we meet, my enthusiasm will be palpable. Here’s what matters: honesty, generosity, and persistence. I believe it’s important to take care of others and to support them in achieving their dreams. Running Winkler Real Estate Group as its founder and President has been an incredible experience. With terrific growth every year, we never lose sight of the key to our success: happy, satisfied customers. We are never too busy to say “thank you.” And a handshake is our word. Almost three decades ago I was a newly licensed agent working in San Francisco. An entrepreneur at heart, in 2001 I struck out on my own. Heeding the maxim “If you rest, you rust" it wasn’t long before I hired a business manager and my first agent. Together we formed a start-up, and over the years the business flourished. Today more than 30 agents, each with a distinct skill set, call Winkler Real Estate Group home. We’re like a family. We share impeccable integrity, enormous passion for our work, and a drive to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients. Collaboration and congeniality allow us to pool our knowledge and experience to offer real estate advice and guidance you can count on. No red tape, no fancy footwork; we provide guidance you can trust. I couldn’t be happier; we’re a stellar team.

Kathleen W.
Red Oak Realty
About Kathleen

Friends describe me as motivated and driven. Clients say I act as a therapist and reality check and “negotiate killer deals.” After 16 years selling homes, I still love wearing so many hats. Previously, I was a union organizer and public education campaign PR consultant. I am a born and bred advocate and feel the hum of what I do when I am fulfilling my innate drive to be both a benefactor and a competitor. On the one side, I am always looking for ways to meet your deeper needs and be of service. On the other side, I thrill in the “win” for a buyer in a multiple offer scenario or securing the highest price for a seller during intense negotiations. When you work with me, the Olympian inside of me is harnessed to help you reach your goals. Equally important is the relationship I build over time with you, the client. Referrals are the bread and butter of my business. A referral tells me I have truly helped someone in a meaningful way. And there you have my transparent motivation: to deliver such a “WOW” level of service that you refer your friends, family, and co-workers to me. I am full of gratitude every day to be able to be of service, and at the same time fiercely negotiate and advocate for clients, strategizing wins both big and small. If you want a Realtor that tells it like it is, prioritizes you and makes you feel listened to, I am that Realtor. If you need a hard driving, aggressive advocate who is strategic in representing your best interests, I am that Realtor. You don’t have to sacrifice the strategic smarts, negotiating skills and market expertise to experience the responsiveness and caring you want in a service provider. With me, you get both. I have lived in the Bay Area for almost 30 years - specifically in Albany, California. My husband John (like me a serial entrepreneur) and I have two kids, 12 year old Max and 8 year old Ella. I am an avid sci fi book and movie fan and travel all around the world with my family, instilling a sense of adventure and compassion in my kids. I chose to work with Red Oak Realty because it is an independent, Oakland-based, woman-owned firm with offices in Berkeley and Oakland versus a national office that would siphon off resources. That gives my clients the competitive advantage, with things like an in-house marketing team, a dedicated PR firm, and a 15-to-100 staff to agent ratio. My statistics*: Over 190 transactions Over $145,000,000 in sales volume My listings sell for an average of 26% over asking My listings are on the market for an average of 16 days Receive 30-60 referrals a year Average sales price for listings: $1,150,000 Average sales price for buyers I work with: $1,078,000 A single family home expert, Kathleen ranks in the top 6% of 6,941 Oakland agents* Top Oakland seller's agent, Kathleen ranks in the top 9% of 6,941 Oakland agents* *Source: MLS & HomeLight.

Aaron B.
Perspective Real Estate
About Aaron

Perspective Founder Aaron Brown doesn’t believe in wasting time. He rose to the top of his brokerage two years after obtaining his real estate license in 2007, and he now ranks amongst the top 1% of all agents in the Oakland/Berkeley region. Aaron has been involved in well over over 300 transactions and now leverages his skills and experience as the leader of Perspective Real Estate. A critical thinker who consistently comes up with successful strategies for his clients, Aaron is at his best when working with clients who are looking for expert advice and direction. Direct yet never pushy, Aaron provides sound guidance with optimum results always the target. Aaron truly enjoys the process of transforming a home for sale and then pushing for its greatest results. Aaron came to real estate after years of experience in the hospitality industry where he learned to apply the same principles of excellence he now brings to real estate.

Ultimately, his extensive experiences across the board allow him to always position his clients for success. A native of the East Bay, Aaron currently lives in Oakland, CA and owns investment property across the East Bay. While this background makes him something of an expert of the local market, being so well known in the community also makes him an on-demand asset.

Clients working with any member of the team can rest assured that Aaron is personally supporting them at every step along the way.

Declan S.
Red Oak Realty
About Declan

I’m an Irish-born 17-year resident of the Bay Area who lives in Albany with my wife and our two daughters. I’ve lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Pt Richmond and Marin. My choice is the East Bay. My real estate career began as a commercial real estate researcher for a national corporation and then as a professional architectural photographer. I’ve been licensed as a Realtor since 2004. Having traveled extensively internationally, I value the Bay Area as an absolutely incredible place to live. Since 2007 I’ve been working with a lot of first-time buyers. The thrill in handing over the keys to someone closing on their first purchase is unparalleled. I’ve spent a great deal of time representing buyers in bank-owned transactions (REOs), and listing short sales over the past two years. My clients flatter me with praise and are keen to refer me whenever possible to family and friends. They understand that this is the cornerstone of my business philosophy. I work almost exclusively by r
