Daniel Winkler
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.

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.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Orinda?
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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Orinda?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. 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 Orinda, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Orinda?
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 Orinda 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 Orinda 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.
Read more
