Frequently Asked Questions
  • When should I hire a real estate agent in Oakland?

    It all depends on the current state of the Oakland real estate market, but we recommend speaking to a real estate agent as soon as you’re thinking of buying or selling a home in the area, which may be anywhere from three to nine months before you want to move.

    Whether you’re buying or selling a home, the odds of getting the price you want are higher if you work with a top performing real estate agent.

  • What questions should I ask when interviewing Oakland real estate agents?

    It’s important to understand a potential real estate agent’s experience and expertise. Some essential questions to ask when interviewing real estate agents are:

    - How many homes have you sold/closed in the last 6 months?
    - Can you provide me with referrals?
    - What is your marketing and/or negotiation strategy?
    - Do you work with a team?
    - How many days, on average, do your listings take to sell?

    Any real estate agent that can’t answer one of these questions should raise a red flag.
