Fixed up and staged to sell, Oakland, California. Just another home I enjoyed transforming.

One of my absolute favorite aspects about real estate is when I have the opportunity to prepare a home for sale. It’s my version of playing in the sand.

Whether it is coordinating the workers, choosing the light fixtures or managing the project, witnessing the transformation is always exciting and never gets old.

 

Details:

580 Kenmore Avenue, Oakland | Offered at $899,000

Three bedrooms, one full bath and an expansive garden.

Located within a few blocks of the bustling shops and restaurants on Lakeshore and Grand Avenues.

Partner with a Local Realtor for Best Results

Sunday, November 1, 2015
Debbi DiMaggio

Be sure to partner with a Realtor who is looking out for your best interests. Your Realtor should be a specialist in the area you are seeking to sell or buy residential real estate. An honest agent, not a greedy one just seeking out a big commission will want the best for their client by referring a buyer or seller to another Realtor who knows the ins and the outs and the customs and the idiosyncrasies of that particular market, as well as the facts, that may or may not be public information. Likewise, a seller must realize that greed is not in their own best interest either. A seller hoping to transact a real estate deal on their own in order to forgo paying a real estate fee to a real estate professional will more often than not lose out.

Pictured above fellow colleagues and friends who specialize in various regions throughout California. If you are seeking to buy or sell outside of the East Bay please ask for a referral and I will be sure to connect you with a professional both compatible and one with the expertise in the market you are considering.
