Robert has many fine qualities, as evidenced by the reviews already posted here - he is honest, hard working and experienced, for sure - but we found that what really sets him apart from others are three traits that proved critical at different points in the phenomenally successful sale of our much loved home: he is extremely perceptive, has excellent judgment and he has a bedrock calm that allows him to move with great speed in executing complicated tasks without adding to the stress inherent in selling one's home. Perception: Robert listens. This means he sees what you need before you have even articulated the need yourself. Hearing what we wanted to do, he volunteered to put us in touch with a top agent on the east coast, where we were moving, to guide us through an unusual deal that was at the heart of our transition to the next phase of our life.

Robert has many fine qualities, as evidenced by the reviews already posted here - he is honest, hard working and experienced, for sure - but we found that what really sets him apart from others are three traits that proved critical at different points in the phenomenally successful sale of our much loved home: he is extremely perceptive, has excellent judgment and he has a bedrock calm that allows him to move with great speed in executing complicated tasks without adding to the stress inherent in selling one's home. Perception: Robert listens. This means he sees what you need before you have even articulated the need yourself. Hearing what we wanted to do, he volunteered to put us in touch with a top agent on the east coast, where we were moving, to guide us through an unusual deal that was at the heart of our transition to the next phase of our life. It was successful. Judgment: Where another agent had warned new laws would cost us a great deal of money - as well as anxiety - Robert judged with pinpoint accuracy exactly what was needed and what was not. He was right. Calm: Not expecting to move for another year, we suddenly found ourselves trying to manage three simultaneous real estate deals within three months to accomplish a new dream of multigenerational living on an urgent schedule beyond our control. This involved what I can fairly state was one of the most intense effort of our lives, sorting through five decades of the past as we prepared ourselves to move forward. Robert never faltered and never added to our stress: helping us with the smallest and biggest tasks with kindness and focus in equal measure. I don't think we could have done it without his guidance. We are grateful to Robert and his team, especially his partner Josie, for a five-star effort that has made all the difference. We recommend him to any one looking for the best.

Robert helped me buy my home in 2019 and sell it again in 2024. Both times Robert was extremely helpful, even managing a kitchen update before I sold it. One thing I really appreciated throughout the time I owned the house was his contractor recommendations. I always looked around for additional quotes, but each time his recommended contractors were the most affordable and high quality I could find. This was a great help.

I am providing the Parker George Team with a five star recommendation based on my experience in working with Robert and his team on a most difficult sale of property in Oakland. The Parker George Team coordinated all aspects of clean up, repair, paint, refinishing, and staging of a poorly maintained condominium in Oakland under an aggressive time line. The property was made available for sale on time, and effectively marketed for two weeks. The end result was was multiple offers far exceeding asking price and my personal expectations. Robert's communication process was excellent and he continually exhibited superior knowledge of the market coupled with effective pricing strategies. I highly recommend the Parker George Team for all residential selling needs in the Oakland/Bay Area.

Robert is everything we were looking for in a realtor and some things we didn't know were possible. He is knowledgeable. From the competitive nature of Bay Area real estate game to the nuances of sustainable building, Robert provided insight and guidance. When we encountered ambiguity, Robert would do additional research and come back with more information. At every turn, we felt there was clarity, and in some cases, that clarity helped us to know when something was not a fit. Robert is both tactical and strategic. He worked with us to set up an offer strategy, walking us through various outcomes and possible responses. He would also roll up his sleeves, grab a flashlight, and crawl under a foundation with me to check out building infrastructure. Robert's approach made our offer process smooth and efficient, which kept us calm and confident. Robert is thorough and detail oriented. He…

He would also roll up his sleeves, grab a flashlight, and crawl under a foundation with me to check out building infrastructure. Robert's approach made our offer process smooth and efficient, which kept us calm and confident. Robert is thorough and detail oriented. He regularly discovered things we would have missed and pointed out places we would need to allocate additional budget. Robert is honest. He will tell you when he thinks something is suspicious. He offers expertise and comparisons to other experiences to help illuminate where something may be off. It never felt like he was trying to make the sale, rather that he was helping us to find the perfect fit and make sure there were no surprises. Robert's network is remarkable. Every time we told a selling agent that we were working with Robert, we were met with a smile and excitement. Many fellow realtors told us stories and commented on how much they enjoyed working with Robert. He has earned the trust of his peers. He has a contact for every part of the process and his reference is strong; we have had success with each of his recommendations. Robert and his team are friendly, organized, responsive, and prompt. Emails, texts, and calls were answered quickly and every appointment was set up easily and started on time. All communication was easy and clear. Robert was flexible to our hectic schedules and made himself available. We especially appreciated his communication during escrow and post close, he kept us and our entire extended team on track to close, communicated proactively around changes, and followed up even after we had gotten our keys. Robert is fun! This process is time consuming and a good portion of that time is spent in communication with your realtor. We really enjoyed spending time with Robert and had fun being in his presence. His positive energy is contagious. Our experience with Robert far surpassed our previous experiences with other agents -- Robert is the best realtor in Oakland. We have a rule that when you find someone this good, you hold onto them and you tell all your friends. We've been recommending Robert to everyone we know buying in Oakland as the top buyers agent and we plan to work with him in the future for all our real estate needs.

We cannot recommend Robert Parker and his team highly enough! My husband and I crossed paths with Robert at one of his open houses and it was immediately clear that he is someone who is attentive, genuine and well-versed in the Bay Area market. Robert stood out because he truly listens and is incredibly attentive to your needs. For us, as first-time homebuyers, it was crucial to move at our own pace without feeling rushed or pressured and Robert was patient, allowing us to take our time and making sure we were comfortable at every step of the journey. Another thing that set Robert apart was his actionable, practical guidance - he connected us with knowledgeable lenders, educated us on how to review the disclosure packets/ what to review within 100+ pages of disclosure packets, and coached us on how to assess a home; every walkthrough with him is like having a mini inspection - with Robe…

Beyond just helping us buy a house, Robert provided a one-stop-shop experience for all things home-related. From furniture shops to trusted contractors to sharing long-term renovation ideas, his service didn't stop at the closing. In short, Robert is everything you would want in a realtor - he's knowledgeable, responsive, attentive, honest and has a strong network of realtors (a significant advantage in multi-offer situations). If you're looking for a realtor who will diligently walk with you every step of the way - then Robert is your person!!

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!

Kyle H.

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 delays with our financing. End of the day, I wouldn't trust anyone more than Robert with my next real estate transaction. He knows the market and knows the people better than anyone.

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.

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 through the entire house, inside and out, to determine the scope of work that would be beneficial before listing. They knew a number of professionals for every job. All we had to do was tell them what we were looking for, and they got it done for…

They knew a number of professionals for every job. All we had to do was tell them what we were looking for, and they got it done for us (on a pretty quick timeline to boot). Then came the sale of our house. We were so impressed with their professionalism and negotiation skills. Robert & Josie also helped us navigate a tricky situation with our buyer. We were in constant communication with them, working with the buyer and their agent, that ultimately led to the sale. They talked us through every scenario and all the avenues we could take. With their help, we negotiated our way to the eventual sale of the house. From start to finish, we felt that we were in the best of hands. We would 100% recommend Robert & Josie as agents and wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if we need real estate services in the future.

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 open houses that Robert prepared us well and provided us with the knowledge we needed to make informed judgments about potential homes.

He kept an open channel of communication with us for advice and feedback as we navigated a competitive market and evaluated potential homes. Robert’s insight and patience were invaluable, and he often spent hours on the phone with us talking through various issues. He encouraged us to look carefully and not to settle for homes that did not align with the goals we shared at the beginning of the process. By doing so, he helped us to hold out for the home that ultimately was perfect for us and helped us win out among a competitive pool of offers. We are so happy to have worked with Robert, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the East Bay.

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. And she is an absolutely delightful person to know. We don't expect to move for a long, long time, but Josie George will be the person we call when, and if, that day ever comes!

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 job. She interceded with the HOA on our behalf to help us get Board approval to change out the floors in the condo and researched contractors to do the job for us.

With the HOA, her follow-through was diligent and she got them to make an early decision to enable us to install the floors prior to move in. Clearly, as the new homeowner this was our responsibility and yet she willingly took it on. She is an absolute delight to work with and we wish everyone in such a position went the extra mile as she did!

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 house, and met with inspectors at the house when I couldn't be there. Josie is just a call or a text message away whenever you need her. She has become not just our agent, but also our friend. I highly recommend Josie George for any of your r…

Janice 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 - she addressed all of our questions thoroughly and promptly replied to emails. Overall, her go-getter attitude, spunk, and cheerfulness made us confident we were in good hands.

#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 reaching out to ask for recommendations moving forward!

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 put us over the finish line by getting the seller's agent to understand that we were the most qualified buyers with great terms and a quick close.

One other benefit of having Josie as your agent is that Josie has great connections, and introduced us to our mortgage lender who had us pre-approved prior to house hunting, and was able to close escrow in 14 days! We couldn't have navigated this process without Josie and her referrals. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

Laurie C.

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.

Dave 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!

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 a friend and I knew almost immediately after meeting with him that we shared the same views about my home and that he knew the history and potential of our neighborhood and what people were looking for and how to attract the right buyer.

Robert was referred to me by a friend and I knew almost immediately after meeting with him that we shared the same views about my home and that he knew the history and potential of our neighborhood and what people were looking for and how to attract the right buyer. As a contractor that is detail-oriented, a bit of a perfectionist, and little bit of a control freak, it's difficult for me to let go of some things for other people to work on. Robert, was super responsive when I had questions, /concerns/comments about things that I could do before the sale to further improve the house, what sales trends were like during Shelter In Place, and how my house was going to be presented to buyers. Many times, without me even asking, he gave me updates on how the sale of a neighboring house was trending. His attentiveness was really assuring and made me feel more comfortable during the selling process and confident that we were going to receive what I thought my house was valued at. And we did! I was astonished by the presentation and the response that we were receiving once the home was listed on MLS. The staging, photography, videography, and marketing on various digital and print platforms was spectacular and very approachable. He was able to highlight the attention to detail in the home as well as make it feel inviting. He even painted pictures (metaphorically speaking) of how future homeowners could utilize the space. In just 7 days there over 100 walk-threws (in a time of a pandemic no less), he kept me updated each day on the responses from other agents and I was continually surprised with how many people were interested in my home. And when he told me that there were over 30 offers on the house, I was honestly speechless. I received offers that were well over what I thought I was going to get. We set a new record in my neighborhood receiving over $1000 per sq. ft. I'm so happy that Robert represented me and my home, he saw it's value from day 1 and over-delivered on our sale goal. He gave me confidence during the selling process. His knowledge of the area and process as well as his attentiveness was so assuring. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate him an 11. If I choose to buy or sell in the future I would 100% work with Robert again.

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, Robert gave us a detailed crash course on the basics of home ownership and maintenance. He made sure that we understood what we were looking at and what we were potentially getting ourselves into. Robert's level of communication can only be de…

From teaching us about various types of roofing, to expressing concerns over drains leading to a houses foundation, Robert gave us a detailed crash course on the basics of home ownership and maintenance. He made sure that we understood what we were looking at and what we were potentially getting ourselves into. Robert's level of communication can only be described as supernatural. He was readily available through text, phone call, or even the web-app with a response time that could rival a cobra strike. With the level of stress involved in this process, having someone so responsive was both an incredible asset and an amazing luxury. Another important detail I'd like to emphasize is the time Robert took to understand what we were looking for in a home. Rather than simply shotgunning a variety of houses seeing which one would stick, Robert put in the work to find a number of homes that best suited our needs. Being in the Bay Area housing market, it was an incredible boon that Robert was able to find so many homes that fit our ideal criteria. I can not stress enough how great it was to work with Robert. He will hands down be our number one reference to anyone ever looking to purchase a home. Not only is he a capable and competent Real Estate Agent, but he is also just a really good guy. It is clear that he works hard to make sure his clients are educated, comfortable, and satisfied with every aspect of the home buying process. Though we do not plan on going through this ordeal again any time soon, I would gladly work with Robert on any and all future home purchases

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 concerns, and very responsive with emails. As we began this house search process, he spent a lot of time asking questions about our personal preferences and listening to our descriptions of what our short term and long term goals are for a house.…

As we began this house search process, he spent a lot of time asking questions about our personal preferences and listening to our descriptions of what our short term and long term goals are for a house. Our personal preferences for the house conditions, prices, and ambiance have changed a lot since we embarked on this journey, but Robert somehow managed to adapt to our constantly changing perspectives. He helped us manage our expectations, explained the process of shopping for a house, from reading and filtering out red flags inside a disclosure, to understanding market conditions and performing comparative analysis in order to have a winning bidding strategy. On the day of the offer, he patiently walked us through the sequence of events that would be happening, what kind of communication he would be having with the listing agent, and how we would leverage our agreed-upon bidding strategy to make sure we were competitive. And Robert was also there for the heartache whenever our bid fell through, where he not only consoled us but also helped us re-evaluate our strategy and find room for improvement. We cannot express our appreciation for Robert enough, as we sit cozily in our new home while the Bay area is being inundated with rain, thinking about the trials and tribulations we went through to get this home, which would not have been possible without Robert's help and guidance.

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 appreciated that they would give me their individual advice, which was not always completely in sync, which helped me come to informed decisions. The real test of performance though is not when things go well, but rather when there are problems. We d…

The real test of performance though is not when things go well, but rather when there are problems. We did have one serious problem, which was not of their making. Others might have brushed this aside and let me deal with it as best I could. But not Robert. They really stepped up to the plate and intervened, going far beyond the call of duty, to get the problem resolved. In my view, what really matters is how people respond to problems, and Robert passed this test with flying colors. Thanks to Robert's help we made out very well on this transaction. I could not recommend him more highly.

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 discourage us from even seeing a house he didn't think was the right fit/out of our price range.

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 called he always picked up the phone.

Seller

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 a friend and I knew almost immediately after meeting with him that we shared the same views about my home and that he knew the history and potential of our neighborhood and what people were looking for and how to attract the right buyer.

Buyer

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, walking us through the paperwork and guiding us through the offer process, including in competitive bid environments. We could not have hoped for a better person to accompany us throughout this process.

Aran N.

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 siting in our new home and we cannot thank Robert enough. Thank you Robert!

Buyer

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!

Daniel B.

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?

Shannon S.

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!

Buyer

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.

Nicholas B.

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.

Gina K.

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.

Jason F.

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.

Candy D.

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. And she is an absolutely delightful person to know. We don't expect to move for a long, long time, but Josie George will be the person we call when, and if, that day ever comes!

As a contractor that is detail-oriented, a bit of a perfectionist, and little bit of a control freak, it's difficult for me to let go of some things for other people to work on. Robert, was super responsive when I had questions, /concerns/comments about things that I could do before the sale to further improve the house, what sales trends were like during Shelter In Place, and how my house was going to be presented to buyers. Many times, without me even asking, he gave me updates on how the sale of a neighboring house was trending. His attentiveness was really assuring and made me feel more comfortable during the selling process and confident that we were going to receive what I thought my house was valued at. And we did! I was astonished by the presentation and the response that we were receiving once the home was listed on MLS. The staging, photography, videography, and marketing on various digital and print platforms was spectacular and very approachable. He was able to highlight the attention to detail in the home as well as make it feel inviting. He even painted pictures (metaphorically speaking) of how future homeowners could utilize the space. In just 7 days there over 100 walk-threws (in a time of a pandemic no less), he kept me updated each day on the responses from other agents and I was continually surprised with how many people were interested in my home. And when he told me that there were over 30 offers on the house, I was honestly speechless. I received offers that were well over what I thought I was going to get. We set a new record in my neighborhood receiving over $1000 per sq. ft. I'm so happy that Robert represented me and my home, he saw it's value from day 1 and over-delivered on our sale goal. He gave me confidence during the selling process. His knowledge of the area and process as well as his attentiveness was so assuring. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate him an 11. If I choose to buy or sell in the future I would 100% work with Robert again.

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 job. She interceded with the HOA on our behalf to help us get Board approval to change out the floors in the condo and researched contractors to do the job for us. With the HOA, her follow-through was diligent and she got them to make an early…

With the HOA, her follow-through was diligent and she got them to make an early decision to enable us to install the floors prior to move in. Clearly, as the new homeowner this was our responsibility and yet she willingly took it on. She is an absolute delight to work with and we wish everyone in such a position went the extra mile as she did!

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, Robert gave us a detailed crash course on the basics of home ownership and maintenance. He made sure that we understood what we were looking at and what we were potentially getting ourselves into. Robert's level of communication can only be de…

He made sure that we understood what we were looking at and what we were potentially getting ourselves into. Robert's level of communication can only be described as supernatural. He was readily available through text, phone call, or even the web-app with a response time that could rival a cobra strike. With the level of stress involved in this process, having someone so responsive was both an incredible asset and an amazing luxury. Another important detail I'd like to emphasize is the time Robert took to understand what we were looking for in a home. Rather than simply shotgunning a variety of houses seeing which one would stick, Robert put in the work to find a number of homes that best suited our needs. Being in the Bay Area housing market, it was an incredible boon that Robert was able to find so many homes that fit our ideal criteria. I can not stress enough how great it was to work with Robert. He will hands down be our number one reference to anyone ever looking to purchase a home. Not only is he a capable and competent Real Estate Agent, but he is also just a really good guy. It is clear that he works hard to make sure his clients are educated, comfortable, and satisfied with every aspect of the home buying process. Though we do not plan on going through this ordeal again any time soon, I would gladly work with Robert on any and all future home purchases

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 house, and met with inspectors at the house when I couldn't be there. Josie is just a call or a text message away whenever you need her. She has become not just our agent, but also our friend. I highly recommend Josie George for any of your r…

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 concerns, and very responsive with emails.

As we began this house search process, he spent a lot of time asking questions about our personal preferences and listening to our descriptions of what our short term and long term goals are for a house. Our personal preferences for the house conditions, prices, and ambiance have changed a lot since we embarked on this journey, but Robert somehow managed to adapt to our constantly changing perspectives. He helped us manage our expectations, explained the process of shopping for a house, from reading and filtering out red flags inside a disclosure, to understanding market conditions and performing comparative analysis in order to have a winning bidding strategy. On the day of the offer, he patiently walked us through the sequence of events that would be happening, what kind of communication he would be having with the listing agent, and how we would leverage our agreed-upon bidding strategy to make sure we were competitive. And Robert was also there for the heartache whenever our bid fell through, where he not only consoled us but also helped us re-evaluate our strategy and find room for improvement. We cannot express our appreciation for Robert enough, as we sit cozily in our new home while the Bay area is being inundated with rain, thinking about the trials and tribulations we went through to get this home, which would not have been possible without Robert's help and guidance.

Janice 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 - she addressed all of our questions thoroughly and promptly replied to emails. Overall, her go-getter attitude, spunk, and cheerfulness made us confident we were in good hands.

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).

#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 reaching out to ask for recommendations moving forward!

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 put us over the finish line by getting the seller's agent to understand that we were the most qualified buyers with great terms and a quick close.

We couldn't have navigated this process without Josie and her referrals. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

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 called he always picked up the phone. This was among his greatest strengths to us because we always felt we were a priority!

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.

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 a friend and I knew almost immediately after meeting with him that we shared the same views about my home and that he knew the history and potential of our neighborhood and what people were looking for and how to attract the right buyer.

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!

Buyer

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, walking us through the paperwork and guiding us through the offer process, including in competitive bid environments. We could not have hoped for a better person to accompany us throughout this process.

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 siting in our new home and we cannot thank Robert enough. Thank you Robert!

Buyer

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!

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?

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!

Buyer

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.

Nicholas B.

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.

Gina K.

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.

Jason F.

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.

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 open houses that Robert prepared us well and provided us with the knowledge we needed to make informed judgments about potential homes. He kept an open channel of communication with us for advice and feedback as we navigated a competitive market…

He kept an open channel of communication with us for advice and feedback as we navigated a competitive market and evaluated potential homes. Robert’s insight and patience were invaluable, and he often spent hours on the phone with us talking through various issues. He encouraged us to look carefully and not to settle for homes that did not align with the goals we shared at the beginning of the process. By doing so, he helped us to hold out for the home that ultimately was perfect for us and helped us win out among a competitive pool of offers. We are so happy to have worked with Robert, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the East Bay.

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.

Linda S.

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!

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 through the entire house, inside and out, to determine the scope of work that would be beneficial before listing. They knew a number of professionals for every job. All we had to do was tell them what we were looking for, and they got it done for…

Then came the sale of our house. We were so impressed with their professionalism and negotiation skills. Robert & Josie also helped us navigate a tricky situation with our buyer. We were in constant communication with them, working with the buyer and their agent, that ultimately led to the sale. They talked us through every scenario and all the avenues we could take. With their help, we negotiated our way to the eventual sale of the house. From start to finish, we felt that we were in the best of hands. We would 100% recommend Robert & Josie as agents and wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if we need real estate services in the future.

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 delays with our financing. End of the day, I wouldn't trust anyone more than Robert with my next real estate transaction. He knows the market and knows the people better than anyone.
