We decided to buy our first home after living in the Bay Area for less than a year, during a seller’s market, and the task seemed daunting. We were fortunate to find Robert through another client he had helped to recently purchase a home, and we had high expectations given the fantastic review. Robert lived up to those expectations and then some. From the minute we began working with him, Robert expertly guided us through an extensive buyer education process to ensure we were well-informed about the East Bay, the realities of the market, and all of the hurdles we would have to clear to buy a house. It was clear as soon as we started visiting ope...— Ethan T.
We had a great experience working with Robert to buy a condo in Berkeley. He was very patient and responsive throughout the entire process and we couldn't have asked for more support.— Tyler H.
When we were searching for our first house back in 2018, we had the pleasure of Josie being our buyer’s agent. We had a wonderful experience with her – so when it was time to sell our house, we asked her for a recommendation for a seller’s agent. She had since branched out into the role of a seller’s agent, along with her husband Robert. We were thrilled to work with them again. It’s hard to really express how much we appreciated working with both of them. Our move was out of state, so we had to do most of the process remotely. However, with Robert and Josie’s assistance, it was breeze. We met them a few times in person before we moved and went thr...— Jordan L.
Robert and team were an unbelievable support to my family as we went through the home buying process here in the east bay. He immediately helped us wrap our heads around the challenging and competitive market here and put us in the best position to get an offer accepted. Even while we pursued financing through a VA Loan, Robert made sure we were competitively positioned on every offer and eventually landed us our dream home in Oakland. Once our offer was accepted, he provided a host of contractors to us to help get quotes on various projects we wanted to get done on our new home. He also did a great job managing the sellers while we ran into del...— Kyle H.
I can’t give a high enough recommendation for Robert Parker and his team as we searched for our new house in the Bay Area. Robert was a total pleasure to work with, and a consummate professional in every respect. He was thoughtful about our situation and criteria, and guided us strategically through both the search and the purchase processes. Because he is so respected has such great rapport with agents in this area, he was able to guide and successfully maneuver the close on our new house. We are grateful and delighted to recommend him!— Linda S.
We cannot praise, or thank Josie enough for her help in purchasing our home here in Albany, She was always available, always responsive with answers to our questions, and a perfect guide to success in the markets up here in northern California. We absolutely fell in love with the house when we first saw it, and Josie's advice in making our opening bid was invaluable. We succeeded ! We moved from southern California to live closer to our grandchildren, and Josie also watched over our new home during the month before we could move in while we sold our other house down south. She went above and beyond expectations in every aspect of our transaction. An...— Candy D.
It was our pleasure to work with Josie George as our real estate agent when we recently purchased a condo in Oakland. It was not our first experience buying a property (this was our fifth in as many markets) and I cannot tell you how thrilled and pleased we were to work with Josie. Her knowledge of the East Bay market and the real estate industry exceeded that of many more seasoned brokers we previously dealt with. She has a fantastic attitude and if she doesn't know the answer to a question (which is not often the case), she'll immediately find out and get back to you. She is one of those rare people who go above and beyond the actual scope of her ...— Candace A.
If you are looking for a real estate agent who will give you service above and beyond what you would ordinarily expect to find with most REALTORS, then Josie George is the agent for you! Josie helped with the sale of my house and also with the purchase of a new house. Josie was enthusiastic, realistic, and knowledgeable about all of the requirements for selling or buying a house in the Bay area. She welcomed our "family approach" and became a member of our family throughout the process! Not only did Josie successfully guide me through the sale and purchase of a home, she also made design and decorating suggestions, went shopping for fixtures for the...— Megan M.
We adored working with Josie. As complete real estate novices, we were a little overwhelmed by the apartment-hunting process. Josie was always forthcoming about what we could expect while remaining calm, patient, and reassuring. She took the time to get a sense of our personal style and really understand what we were looking for. She also expertly educated us about the housing market in general and the East Bay in particular. Her warm personality and obvious passion for real estate made it a delight to learn from her. During our search, Josie was always extremely flexible and catered to our schedule. We particularly appreciated how attentive she was...— Janice M.
#Sold! We spent a year with Josie trying to find "the home" in El Cerrito. Josie was 100% with us the entire way; super transparent, honest and insightful. We asked a lot of questions, had a lot of concern and felt defeated at times, given the current market. Josie checked in, on a routine basis, and kept us up-to-date on the current prices. She continued to show us homes in/around our range as we were truly trying to find the right starter-home for our family. We ended up finding the perfect house, we closed super fast and everything went as smooth as it could have. She provided post-home buyer recommendations and we feel more than comfortable reac...— Danielle W.
We are very fortunate that Josie was our agent. By chance, we found Josie on Redfin and we couldn't be happier. The entire house hunting process was stressful at times, but having Josie as our agent made us feel like we were in good hands. She is smart, energetic, knowledgeable, friendly, ethical, and persistent. She has a good reputation amongst other agents, which can be helpful. She will go the extra mile for her clients. She will take time to explain things, offer opinions when needed, and fight for her clients. Case in point, for the house we purchased, we weren't the highest offer, but we had the best terms and wrote a competitive offer. Josie...— Oliver W.
Josie was my REALTOR in selling my home in Point Richmond. From start to finish, she had my back. She is the kind of REALTOR most people hope to get, and you learn down the road if you got one of the good ones or not (you know what i mean!). Josie is one of the good ones! She is on top of process, doesn't let small things slip through, personable, smart, genuinely cares and works to get you the best deal and a fair handshake in the process. Having Josie in my corner was a huge sigh of relief. I can't recommend Josie enough, A+ REALTOR on every level.— Laurie C.
Josie was a lifesaver through our journey to find our perfect home. She was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood we were looking at and showed us a wide variety of homes to get a sense of what fit us best. She also made the entire purchase process stress free and walked us through every step. Couldn't recommend her enough!— Dave C.
As a first time seller, Robert made the process of selling my home as easy and stress-free as possible. To be completely honest, at the beginning of the selling process and shopping around for the right REALTOR, I was beginning to lose confidence that I would receive even close to what I thought my house was worth. This was the first house that I bought and I had completely renovated it from front to back to create my dream home. Robert saw that my house wasn't just a 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage, he saw that it was an urban oasis with outdoor living, tons of privacy, and super accessible to all the conveniences of the city. Robert was referred to me by...— Jason S.
Working with Robert was an absolute pleasure. Being a first time home buyer is daunting as is, but tack on the Bay Area housing market, and an international pandemic on top of that and you have yourself the perfect storm of house hunter stress. Despite all of these hurdles and our complete ignorance of the home purchasing process, Robert carefully and effectively chauffeured us to the finish line. Beyond the basic house showing aspects of his work, Robert was sure to thoroughly explain any issues he noticed with every home we visited. From teaching us about various types of roofing, to expressing concerns over drains leading to a houses foundation, ...— Tommy K.
We worked closely with Robert for over a year before he helped us find our dream home. Reflecting on this past year of mad house search, I don't know how Robert found the patience to work with us through multiple house visits (during Covid nevertheless), multiple offers, and plenty of emotional ups and downs that came with this process. As first time home buyers, we came into the market completely clueless about what we wanted in a house, how much we should budget for one, and how to bid on a house strategically. Thankfully, Robert was there to guide us all the way. He was great at communication, always available to jump on a call to address our con...— Catherine H.
Working with Robert to sell my childhood home was really a pleasure. I live on the East Coast so was anticipating having to make multiple trips to Berkeley to get our house sold. I was completely wrong - Robert took care of everything. I did not need to travel at all. Rather he served as a one-stop-shop to handle everything, from working with the tenant to facilitate his move out of the house, to cleaning out and appropriately disposing of the contents, to preparing the house for sale, through to the final transaction. Robert was always available and always helpful. They form a great team (two heads is really better than one). I particularly appreci...— Mark W.
After using another REALTOR for 3 months, we switched to Robert and had our offer accepted on a house within 2 months (in the crazy Bay Area pandemic market)! We had an amazing experience with him throughout the process. Robert took a lot of time to learn every detail of what we hoped for and needed in a home. He was patient with questions and talking through options. Robert is an expert on Oakland but also on houses specific to Oakland (earthquake risks, permitting, ADUs). He was great at guiding us, but we never felt pushed to put an offer on any house. In fact, he was very transparent when he had concerns about a house we were touring and would d...— Nina T.
My wife and I had only lived in the Bay Area for a year before we began looking for a home. We had moved from NYC so we are no strangers to a high real estate market. However, the competition for good homes in the area was something that was very intimidated to us and at times, very frustrating and disheartening. Once we began working with Robert - things became much more positive and optimistic. We submitted a few offers that were priced out, but once we got very serious about our desire for a home he fought for us and found us a great house! Our offer was accepted and we live there happily now! He is kind, responsive and optimistic! Whenever I cal...— Anthony S.

We absolutely loved working with Robert and highly recommend him. He was helping us on the buyer side. He is extremely thoughtful and knowledgeable about the market, and was always prepared to go the extra mile to answer follow up questions, investigate specific issues, and help us think through tradeoffs and how best to approach a seller. He really cares about finding the right property for you and has strong ethics. We've been searching for a home for several months and his help has been critical every step of the way, from identifying properties of interest to visiting them often on short notice, conducting diligence, arranging inspections, walki...— Buyer
Robert is among the best of the best. Five stars well deserved. Robert's communication level and professionalism was outstanding and he made the home buying process completely seamless for my wife and I. Robert was organized (set up virtual zoom meetings, calendar invites, follow-ups, check-ins, etc. punctual (on-time with everything and delivered as promised) and made us feel like we were valued clients. We relied on Robert to determine a competitive price for a home we were pursuing, and boom, Robert delivered by getting us into contract and helping us close 21 days later. Top notch service all the way through. We are writing this review while sit...— Aran N.
We were first time home buyers and had a great experience working with Robert! He was extremely patient with us and willing to take the time to show us the ropes and answer all of our questions. Robert took the time to get to know us and understand our priorities for our first home. He was also open and honest about what to expect in this crazy housing market. We always felt that he was advocating for our best interests throughout the process. In the end, Robert helped us find a great home in one of our top neighborhoods. Highly recommend working with this very personable and savvy agent!— Buyer
Robert is amazing! We just closed on our first home in Albany, CA a dream come true, and something we could never have done without Robert's help. He guided and supported us through every step of the process, from our initial conversations about the kind of house we wanted, through open houses, home inspections, and negotiations, to the day he handed us the keys to our new home. He even entertained our infant daughter for over an hour while we signed closing documents. I mean, how can you beat that customer service?— Daniel B.
Can't say enough good things about Robert. He was an A player/partner in not just finding our home, but also in negotiating our contract, researching resources and last but not least being over the top helpful in moving through the process while we closed the deal and got ready for the move cross-country. Though he is new to the industry, his drive, enthusiasm, curiosity, and connections made him the best agent I've ever worked with (and we have more experience than I care to admit). You can't go wrong!— Shannon S.
Robert was great to work with. Knows the market very well, and is very knowledgeable about construction so is a good resource for remodeling ideas. In the end, Robert found a house for me and I was able to make a bid before it was on the market, the entire process was smooth in spite of the ongoing covid situation. Robert also made sure to be on top of everything including the loan application to make sure there were no avoidable delays. Very pleasant to work with as well.— Buyer
Robert was one of many agents that we were referred to by friends and colleagues as my wife and I embarked on our home buying journey. We initially picked Robert because he was inquisitive and took the time to get to know us and our many needs. He showed us he was not only knowledgeable and connected in the East Bay, but also well-organized and data driven during our initial discussion with him.— Buyer
Robert is a true professional on all aspects of his job. He patiently worked with me for over six months and put me in contact with some excellent real estate agents in San Francisco to sell my place. After that, I knew the east bay was for me and I tirelessly looked at places until I found my dream home in Oakland. I would recommend Robert to anyone looking to sell or buy!— Buyer
When buying my first home, Robert was invaluable to have guiding me through the process. He was knowledgeable, readily available, and ready to handle time-sensitive situations when it came to making an offer/closing. I can’t recommend Robert enough if you are looking to buy a home in the East Bay.— Buyer
Robert came recommended by two of my co workers and I'm very thankful. I had a particular set of requirements for my place and Robert was enthusiastic to listen and help me find exactly what I needed. Robert was communicative but also respectful of my time.— Buyer
Robert was amazing to work with from start to finish. I had a tight timeline, specific needs and a crazy schedule and had no issues throughout the entire process. I found exactly what I was looking for and am happy to have gotten to work with Robert.— Nicholas B.
We worked with Robert to help us purchase our first home in the Bay Area and had a phenomenal experience. Robert was highly responsive, a skilled negotiator when it came to getting us the edge.— Gina K.
We listed our house during the shelter in place pandemic and Robert got us full market value in a week, what more can you say? Super easy to work with and always on your side.— Jason F.
