About David

David has lived in the East Bay for over thirty years, and has a thorough knowledge of the Bay Area. He and Claire work together, carrying out the various tasks necessary to prepare and market your home. David and Claire show your home as a team so that more potential buyers will have the best "hands on" introduction to the home and will know first hand its top features.

David has special expertise and experience in helping homeowners maximize tax savings on real estate sales.  As the former Director of Planned Giving at the University of San Francisco for over a decade (now retired), he has frequently helped homeowners make use of charitable trusts and other special "planned gift" arrangements.  David knows how to direct these planned gifts to reduce the often sizeable capital gain tax on the sale of residential or investment property.  He enables donors to support their favorite charity and to provide for themselves through life income payments that these planned gifts can provide.

About Claire

Claire is a fourth generation resident of the East Bay. She listens to your needs and goals, then helps you prepare a plan to meet them. Claire uses a special objectives timeline to assist you. With a large network of professional resource people, including inspectors, painters, plumbers, stagers, gardeners, and engineers, she will quickly and efficiently provide services needed for the sale or purchase of your home.

Patient and trustworthy, she will pro-actively help you navigate the complexities that surround most sales or purchases of homes today. As a gifted negotiator, her aim is to get you the best value.

One of the greatest challenges in home preparation is clearing clutter. Claire has 17 years' experience as a fine arts professor. Her trained, artist's eye can see how to maximize a home's unique beauty, to realize design and visual layouts, all in support of the marketing of your home or the purchase of a new one.
