WE SELECTED THIS DYNAMIC DUO AFTER INTERVIEWING SEVERAL FIRMS, AND THEY PROVED TO BE WELL BEYOND BEING JUST THE RIGHT CHOICE.

I have participated in numerous real estate transactions, and three months ago, I would have had trouble imagining enjoying one, let alone a couple. But that was before I worked with Debbi and Adam of Highland Partners. We selected this dynamic duo after interviewing several firms, and they proved to be well beyond being just the right choice. The professionalism and rigor that Adam brings to the business side of the equation is perfectly complemented by Debbi’s simply superb sense of design and flair for style. I was especially impressed with the way she took the raw material of our beloved (and old-fashioned) Piedmont home, and breathed new life into it, giving it a totally contemporary feel and a consistent aesthetic, while respecting, and in fact actually enhancing, its vintage elegance and charm.

In fact, we enjoyed working with this couple so much that we invited them to work with us on our next transaction, as we sought, and quickly bought, our replacement home. I never thought I’d say this, but I almost wish that there was another real estate deal in the offing now that we’ve found such excellent and absolutely first-rate partners with whom to work! -Tony

DEBBI AND ADAM ARE TOP NOTCH!

Debbi and Adam are top notch! They helped me stage and sell my Oakland home quickly and with a great offer. I live far away and travel a lot, and I didn’t even have to lift a finger–they did everything for me! This team is worth their weight in gold and I look forward to working with them again on my next real estate transaction.  -Jennifer

DEBBI & ADAM HAVE VAST EXPERIENCE and WILL WORK WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Debbi and Adam helped me considerably with the sale of my Piedmont home. It was a major project from renovation to final sale that took many months with construction delays and challenges. As a team they worked diligently and with care throughout that time, long before the “For Sale” sign hit the curb. From assistance with finding good vendors, to working to help me with the inspection process and finding a good fit with a home stager, it made my life in selling the property something less to worry about. They simply made my life easier and they gave great ideas along the way, while even daring the construction dust!

Anyone that is looking to put their home on the market would do themselves well to meet with Debbi and Adam. They have a vast collective experience of the market, and will work with you every step of the way in a straight forward, down to earth, smartly applied, but also light-hearted way that makes the experience for everyone involved work smoothly.-Carl

Real Estate Q & A

Over the past few months I have answered real estate questions posed by the San Francisco Chronicle and SF Gate. Here are a few of those editorial Q & A’s.

What Role Does a Buyer’s Pet or Pets Play in the HomeBuying Process?

Of Millennials who purchase homes, 33 percent say the decision to buy was prompted by the presence of or desire to adopt a pet. That outstrips those who bought homes because of a marriage (25 percent) and those who bought to accommodate children (19 percent).*

Homebuyers really do take into consideration their canine, feline or other pets when deciding to purchase a home. Oftentimes condominiums have a pet limit and size restriction, thus a Home Buyer would not opt to purchase a condo should that be the case and be more likely to purchase a home which is not governed by an HOA.

Home-buyers consider their pets part of the family, so when it comes to making a big life decision such as purchasing a home they will give their Realtor certain criteria that fits both their needs and those of their pets. Here are a few examples of the sorts of amenities dog owners may seek: a fenced in yard is number one; they want to be sure Fido is safe from escape. Sidewalks might be a consideration so when it is time to walk the dog, there is a safe place to walk for both the canine and his/her owner. Other pluses might include being within close proximity to a park, pet stores, a pet hospital and/or groomer. All of these amenities are not so different than when a Home Buyer is purchasing a home with their family — the amenities are similar to those who have children.
