I just wanted to thank both of you for putting us in touch with Maria. Escrow closed a few weeks ago and the house sold for > 100K above the asking price. Maria went well beyond the call of duty in helping us prepare and sell the house remotely. She pretty much acted as our general contractor and interior designer to get things taken care of. She completely transformed the house and set a terrific pace to get the house on the market way sooner than we expected. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone with real estate needs in the Bay Area especially if they need help remotely as we did. Thanks so much, Craig
Maria Eberstein was fabulous! Maria worked with us for months to help us find a home. We were using VA funding which most seller don’t want to consider. Maria had to put in many offers in order to find one that would accept our loan. Maria encouraged us not to give up, that she will find us a home – and she did!
We are now moved into a home we love all because of her. Maria was there for us constantly, keeping us up to date on every development. She had to jump through many hoops to get this loan done. She did it with professionalism and a very positive attitude. Maria also gave us wonder referrals for painters, handy and cleaning services. I believe Maria went above and beyond to make us satisfied customers! We would definitely us Maria again. Dough and Diana Chandler
Maria Eberstein is very professional, works very well with her clients and has a great sense of humor.
She is very thorough with her work, very knowledgeable and will get you the most money she can for the property you are buying or selling.
My wife and I had a great relationship with Maria. I would highly recommend her if you are selling your home as she has been wonderful in getting my house sold. I could not have done it without her and I will be in contact with her, not only if I want to buy or sell a home, but to stay in contact with her because she is now a part of my family. She is such a wonderful Realtor! William Henry Jurgensen III
I just want to recognize the great job done by Maria Eberstein in selling my property at 721 Brockhurst Street, Oakland. This was a rental property that I was about to sell myself without the service of a real estate agent. I have a license and have sold rental properties before and was about to put the house on the market. Speaking with Maria at some length about the possibilities of using her services to help benefit me sell the house – I am glad I did use her expertise.
She is very thorough, had a positive attitude, aggressive, smart, and she was able to put up with me (people that have real estate licenses aren’t easy). I have other rental properties that I am looking to sell and she will be my agent.
I would highly recommend Maria to anyone I know in helping to sell their home. Working with her was truly a pleasure. Tom Perkins
I’d like to express my highest recommendation for Maria Eberstein as our potential realtor.
In late summer 2015 we came to the decision to sell our townhome in Oakland’s Temescal district and look for a larger home for our growing family (2 toddlers). We chose Maria after interviewing her because we felt she had a keen sense of our local market and strong idea of how to market our home to get the best buyers and best price. I would not call us the easiest of clients – we wanted to act quickly and in the meantime, I was traveling significantly and we both had our hands full with little time for a lot of handholding. We moved out within two weeks and basically placed our home in Maria’s hands and gave her full freedom to prepare and stage the house as she saw fit. She quickly assembled her army of vendors and program-managed the prep of the house, which then sold in about 3 weeks. We were very hands-off on the sale and she basically took care of everything, pulling us in only when needed. It was the easiest sale that it could have been – she took care of everything related to selling the house while focused on minimizing the disruption to our children.
Maria also represented us in the purchase of our new home. We had actually found the home, but the sale was challenging as the sellers had different view of the right price. Maria negotiated well on our behalf and kept us out of any “tension.” We arrived at a price we felt good about. Further, she was very flexible and accommodating to gain us access to the house while in escrow to help plan show the house to various vendors so that we could schedule work before we moved in.
Maria certainly felt like a partner in the whole process and we could sense that she was burning the midnight oil on our behalf on both transactions. I’m not sure that I could have ask for any more from a realtor, and I am very happy to provide the highest recommendations for her. Chris and Fiona McCall
