Amber Hom
Realm Real Estate
About Amber

Since 2007, Amber Hom has sold over 1,000 properties throughout Northern California. Consistently ranking in the top 10% of her field, she has found great fulfillment in a career that is perfectly suited to her love of helping people. The daughter of a single mother of four who was also a real estate agent, Amber learned early on that homeownership could help people pave a path to success. She delights in assisting clients of all ages, life situations, and backgrounds in making real estate moves that help them build wealth and boost their quality of life. Residing in Contra Costa County since 1993, Amber earned her real estate license in her early 20s and started her career at the Contra Costa County Association of Realtors®. She developed a well-rounded skill set in various aspects of the business and quickly found success — first at the association and later as an account manager at a title and escrow company. In 2007, she decided to create her own real estate practice, and she hasn’t looked back since. Amber’s certification as a Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) and her extensive work with foreclosures enable her to provide expert guidance to clients in even the most difficult circumstances. Her serene, focused approach to her work has also been shaped by her many years of practicing and teaching meditation, and she often jokes that she is actually a spiritual teacher disguised as a real estate agent. In her spare time, Amber enjoys spending time with her husband, two sons, and dog, Jojo. She loves to cook with her husband, who’s a chef; hike the Lime Ridge Trail in Concord; and watch baseball. She also gives back to her community by volunteering at her local food bank and serving on the board of Humanity Power, a social justice organization.

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.

Declan Spring
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

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.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Pinole?
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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Pinole?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Pinole 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 Pinole 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.
