Why Jane

Jane is a top producing San Francisco East Bay realtor specializing in Piedmont, Oakland, Berkeley & beyond. Leveraging her innovative marketing skills, negotiating prowess and unyielding determination, Jane is able to get her buyers and sellers more of what they want. She is single-minded in the pursuit of her clients’ goals, represents their interests exclusively, and she never leaves their corner.

With nearly all of her listings selling in multiple offers, Jane draws upon The Grubb Company’s in-house marketing department and affiliations with Luxury Portfolio International and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World to cast a wider net. Creating a distinct brand to showcase each property Jane uses out-of-the-box marketing strategies developed from her years of experience, as well as her degree from the University of Washington. With strategic pricing and skilled negotiation tactics, Jane’s sellers know they are selling at the highest possible price.

Jane’s deep knowledge of the community and relationships with other agents gives her buyers the inside track for on and off market opportunities, while her successful financial planning and real estate investment background gives them an edge to make smart buying decisions.

An open, honest and resourceful person, Jane is driven from her early days with Nordstrom to provide an extraordinary buying and selling experience. This unrivaled ability to anticipate her client’s needs and far exceed their expectations has resulted in loyal lifetime clients, glowing testimonials and ongoing referrals.

Personalized Service

While real estate teams and partnerships are common these days, it’s extremely important to know who exactly has the responsibility of protecting your interests. When you hire me you get me. Rather than operate my business with an emphasis on the quantity of sales, I choose to focus on the quality of the results.  In other words, while most top agents are focused on their sales, I’m focused on yours!

This deep bench of supporting players are committed to providing the highest level of service and providing an exceptional buying & selling experience.
