Testimonials, East Bay Real Estate
We could not have had a better selling experience than with Anthony and his team. Selling our condominium was made more challenging by some condo ``interference,`` but Anthony and Tanisha were on top of things. They held our hands throughout the process we were able to sell for $650k over our listing price.
The staging by Marlene was as breathtaking as our penthouse view, and the open house that Anthony planned was spectacular. We would give Anthony and his team 10 stars if Zillow would let us!
Anthony Riggins is practically synonymous with Crocker Highlands, and when we decided to sell our longtime home there his office was the first call we made. Anthony and assistant Shannon Noe were extremely helpful throughout the process, from connecting us with trusted contractors and inspectors and advising on what prep work would bring a good return on investment, to developing a go-to-market strategy and selecting and negotiating the right offer. The outcome far exceeded our expectations, and we’re happy we chose Team Riggins and would do so again.
Anthony’s reputation precedes him throughout the Bay Area, and when we were looking for our next home (not in the Oakland/Berkeley area) we were surprised to meet no fewer than three other agents at open houses whom he had mentored.
Anthony and his team of professionals took the wheel immediately. The home hadn’t been updated for 50+ years and needed a good deal of restoration. From renovated hardwood floors throughout, to paint, landscaping and very tasteful staging, they were able to trans-form the home from something out of the 50s to a modern masterpiece. In addition to preparing our home for market, Anthony’s exceptional marketing campaign reached far and wide bringing droves of buyers to both Sundays. Thank you Anthony for your dedication and top notch service.
You helped make this seemingly stressful process so effortless!
Thanks to his expertise and knowledge of both markets, we felt extremely well informed and confident in our ability to navigate these two transactions. I strongly believe that he gave us a competitive advantage as both buyers and sellers.
Anthony and his staff are extremely professional, and responded quickly to our needs as they arose. I would happily work with Anthony again and unreservedly recommend him to anyone seeking a sound counselor to help them navigate the real estate market.
Anthony Riggins is an excellent realtor who helped us navigate our home search in the East Bay. The home buying process can be very daunting for first-time homebuyers, especially in the current market. His exceptional knowledge of Crocker Highlands and the Oakland real estate market was crucial to purchasing our first home and we are so grateful to have had him on our side.
Anthony’s top notch negotiating skills made the challenge of closing on a home a breeze. We highly recommend Anthony and his team of professionals to lead your search towards getting the home you want!
Anthony is a highly professional and experienced gentleman who will (with his excellent team) gently lead you through the process of selling your home. He is extremely knowledgeable of all that must be done in order to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. He is especially adept at marketing the property and will devise a marketing plan that works well, using local as well as national media. I was especially impressed with the work of Anthony’s photographer who was able to show my property in its best possible light.
Anthony is very aware of local market conditions and will help you arrive at a price that brings the highest number of potential buyers to view your property . In sum and in short, I had 14 offers on my home and sold at more than 54% of asking, with no contingencies!
Anthony helped us find and buy our first home in Elmwood, a very desirable neighborhood in Berkeley. He knew it was the right house for us before we did!
The sellers have told us repeatedly how much they liked Anthony; he was respectful, professional and approachable and presenting our offer and he definitely sealed the deal. Before meeting Anthony, we were not even in the ballpark in terms of price range.
Looking back on it, before Anthony, we really were clueless about how the market works and made three unsuccessful offers, all because of a lack of understanding of the market.
Working with the right agent, one who is in the know and in the mix, is imperative. Anthony helped us understand the market and the bidding process. He was always spot on in terms of price. Most importantly, Anthony offered us something that other agents could not: trust. We trusted his judgment every step of the way.
We are so happy to be in our new house!
