Anthony has sold over $400,000,000 of residential real estate during his eleven year career in the East Bay cities of Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont, Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda. Before joining Sotheby’s International Realty in 2010, Anthony was a top producing agent at The Grubb Company, and is consistently ranked as one of the top producing agents in the East Bay. Anthony’s sales tripled in his first year at Sotheby’s International Realty and he attributes this huge growth to the exceptional and unique marketing opportunities offered by the Sotheby’s International Real Estate network.
Clients who list their homes with Anthony state that he is professional and a great marketer getting top dollar for their homes and setting many sales records. Anthony’s immediate team of buyers’ agents and the best licensed assistant plus his team of stagers, painters, roofers, handyman all come together under one plan and manage to bring his sellers’ properties to the market in a timely and cost-effective manner.
In representing buyers, Anthony excels equally as well as he does in his listings. Many listing agents do not work with buyers, but Anthony likes to be on both sides of the transactions. His team of buyer’s agents are out in full force with him at Sunday Open Houses to help all buyers understand the market and answer any questions they might have about the East Bay and specific neighborhoods. Anthony’s buyers’ agents assist him in showing property at a moment’s notice during the week and weekends. One agent cannot always be available so Anthony’s team really works best for you. With so many neighborhoods to choose from, Anthony wants you to feel comfortable in your next home and neighborhood. So, if you are not familiar with the East Bay, you are in for a treat with a 1.5 hour drive through the various neighborhoods so you can start to feel which one will be your home. Secondly, and in this competitive market, a buyer needs to work with a lender who works with knowledgeable appraisers and delivers on time. After Anthony presents your offer to the seller and listing agent, the seller will ask their listing agent “Do you know this lender and are you sure they can deliver on time?” You need this competitive advantage. Establishing what is really meant by the list price and the final sales price is where you will value him most. It is an art to beat out 5-10 other offers knowing you only bid $25,000 more than the second place offer and not $200,000! Anthony thrives on establishing the winning number after you have decided this is the home for you.
Anthony is a 24 year resident of the beautiful 1920’s Oakland neighborhood called Crocker Highlands. Anthony’s circa 1929 Spanish Mediterranean home was designed by renowned San Francisco Architect W.W. Dixon. Anthony loves his community and believes in giving back to those that support him. To that end, Anthony has contributed over $125,000 to the public school system in the East Bay over the last seven years.
For Sellers, please call Anthony to discuss the sale of your current home and for all of your real estate needs.
For buyers, we look forward to finding your new home and welcoming you into one of the many beautiful communities of the East Bay.
