The Berkeley Hills

About 20 years ago, I was fortunate enough to rent an apartment on Buena Vista Way... mid way between the Temple Of The Wings and Hume Castle, and just up the street from Maybeck Twin Drive.

I always loved it up there - the smell of eucalyptus, the wonderful views, and the delightful architecture. It was particularly magical when I awoke to find the bay fogged in... there were times when the fog was below me... and it looked like a white sea.

My English Setter Magus (named after John Fowles' book) and I took lots of walks ... and I really got to love the parks and architecture of the hills.

You'll love it up there too!

We Value Your Business And Appreciate Your Referrals
Almost all our clients have been referred to us by their friends, family, local neighborhood Realtor, or found us on the Internet. One of the nice benefits of a referral based business is that we get to work with people who are motivated, financially qualified, highly educated, decisive, pleasant, and have interesting backgrounds (one client won a Gold medal at the Olympics). What's particularly rewarding is how many of our buyers and sellers have become friends.

If you're planning to buy or sell a home, we'd appreciate the opportunity to show you how you'll benefit from our services. And, if you know a friend, neighbor, or family member who is buying, selling, or relocating anywhere in the United States, we'll be happy to check our extensive database of highly qualified Realtors and refer you to a great local Realtor.
