Absolutely the best!  Cherie and Elena helped me buy my condo in Oakland in 2007, and when I was ready to sell this year, there is no question that I wanted to work with them again.  

They guided me through all the tricky issues along the way (how to communicate with my tenants, how to get the condo ready for sale, what staging decisions to make, what list price to choose).  They took the time to explain all the ins and outs of the sale, very clearly, every step of the way.  They coordinated all the work that needed to be done prior to sale.  The stager and photographer they hired made my place look amazing -- like a Dwell magazine property.  And the online marketing campaign was top notch.  The result?  The condo sold for $150k more than the highest price I thought possible.  Wow!  I was blown away.  They are good people and great realtors.  If you need a real estate agent, look no further.  You will be glad you hired them.

Elena and Cherie made a home sale in Berkeley so smooth and easy, particularly since I live on the East coast.  I met them both on a trip to Berkeley prior to the sale.  Everything was explained down to the "t" and was done with such precision and timeliness, keeping in communication every step of the way between phone calls and emails.  I highly recommend them for buying or selling.  They are one fantastic team!

"Cherie and Elena were awesome! They helped us buy our house 8 yrs ago and we were very impressed and chose to work with them again to sell the house. I cannot recommend them any higher. They are honest, ethical, considerate and made the process of selling our house as stress free as possible and kept us completely informed throughout the process."

"To put it mildly both Cherie Carson and Elena Ronquillo are the best. 

 I began to work with them one year before I sold my house.  I realized that I was not ready @ that time and told them I was not ready. There was not a feeling of my being judged or them putting pressure on me to do something I was not ready to do. So, about one year later i was in contact with them again. It seemed as if this was the time to sell, and even though i heard as we all have that the market was not good for sellers that did not turn out to be the case at all. We had the first open house on April 1st ( April fools day) and it was a smash. I got numerous bids. (16-17) Both Elena and Cherie were there for me doing the entire process and after the sale. They knew this was a difficult process for me and they were caring, non-judgmental, fun, light-hearted and firm when it was necessary. I really did feel their concern and support during the entire process. They are professional, ethical, concerned whether you are the buyer or seller. They also worked well with the buyer's Realtor and had nothing but praise for her. There were times when they were directive but did so in a way that was tactful, and not @ all condescending. They are realistic about the market and gave me good advice about what to expect. I always felt they were in control and had my best interest @ heart. I also got a lot more money than i ever imagined. I was very excited and surprised when they told me what was being offered for my house. After the house was sold they did not just leave and not call me or stay in touch. We went out for a celebratory event after everything was over.

I would trust them with either selling or buying and think they are superb. I cannot think of enough positive adjectives to describe the ease of the entire process. I recommend them highly for either buying or selling your next home."
