Alex Lehr
Lehr Real Estate
About Alex

Alex has been a licensed real estate broker in California for 30+ years and has always been with Lehr Real Estate (he started when he was 19). He spent the first half of his career in North San Mateo county where he grew up and literally knocked on every door at the time in Millbrae, San Bruno, South San Francisco plus the a large segment of the homes in all of San Mateo county. Alex's coverage area includes Northern Santa Clara County, San Mateo County and San Francisco County. Here is the real difference... statistically the average agent in the state of California sells 4 properties per year meaning that over 30 years... an average agent would have sold 120 properties. Alex has sold over 2000 properties in his career and HomeLight ranks Alex as one of the top 1% of agents in Redwood City for successfully selling homes and as one of the top 12% of agents who sell homes for top dollar. HomeLight has information on 445 of Alex's transactions since 2009, 92 of which were in the past two years and thats only what's showing in the multiple listing service... not to mention the many "off market" homes, income properties and commercial buildings he's sold for homeowners and investors. Alex typically represents the seller (89% of the time), but has also completed more than 50 buyer transactions during this period. Alex has been most prolific in Redwood City including a recent sale representing the seller of a single family home that sold for $2,450,000 and many buyers. Connect with him for a comfortable and informative conversation... most importantly, without the "Realtor rhetoric"!!

Brad Gill
NextHome Lifestyles
About Brad

What better way to describe yourself than words from a previous client...this testimonial was written by a client I assisted recently with the sale of their home. "Brad did a fabulous job for me in preparing the house, pricing, and marketing. We had 160 groups come thru the open houses held over 2 weekends and we got multiple offers ending in getting 12 percent over asking price - the house sold in 9 days!!!! All along Brad was precise in his knowledge and execution. If it was possible to give more than 5 star rating in all of the categories - I would have given him that rating. One of the best and nicest professionals I have had the pleasure to do business with!!!" ------------------ I am a husband, father of three, techie, apple-user, perfectionist, motivator, educator and of course, real estate enthusiast…I envision my profession as a Realtor® as a great privilege, earned through building trust, overcoming challenges and exceeding expectations. I LOVE what I do because I believe that I can truly help people change their lives. I am inspired by every family I meet and measure my success as a Realtor by my ability to best meet their ideal lifestyle needs. I've been immersed in Real Estate for over 15 years now & strongly believe that great success follows great service. My luxury marketing packages & use of technology has catapulted my business to the top 1% within my marketplace. My business model includes leading a team of real estate professionals ready to support & oversee all aspects of the home selling process (from coordinating repairs, renovations, property inspections, movers & more) ensuring our clients have a "turn-key" sales experience.

Kathleen Wilson
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. Transaction and sales volume based on units for all sales in the Bay Area 2002-2018. Other data based on MLS 2017-2018 rankings for all sales in the Bay Area.
