"Brook was the dream agent! She was accessible to check in with whenever we had questions or wanted to talk through our thoughts but she also gave us enough space to make a decision that worked best for us. It didn’t take long for us to realize that Brook was someone we could trust to help walk us through our decision making process about the house— to consider whether this was the right house for us, how much the neighborhood mattered to us, how much space of the house vs having an outdoor area mattered. She always seemed to ask the right questions that led us to our own answer which we ultimately felt comfortable with. From our first house tour with Brook until the very last logistical steps of going into escrow, Brook was an ideal agent and we would recommend her to any of our closest friends and family!" - Alexander H.

"Brook is a miracle worker, and I really could not have imagined a better realtor to help me manifest and move into my very own and very first HOME! She was authentic, honest, endlessly patient, always punctual, detail oriented, and answered all my questions! She was so available too: at the end we talked every day and it was exactly what I needed to make such huge decision and get all the paperwork done. She was also super caring and empathetic. Buying a house is hard and stressful and scary, especially as a single mom, and she was there for all my feelings and fears. I feel so, so lucky to have had Brook as my realtor and I am recommending her to all my friends. She made the impossible dream of buying a house in the bay area on my own a REALITY! Love her! " - Tavis S.

★★★★★
" Brook is a pro! As first-time homebuyers, she guided us through the process clearly and honestly and gave us the tools to evaluate the properties we were interested in. In this competitive, crazy market she worked quickly, but never without integrity. It's easy to get overwhelmed and scared when looking for houses and putting in offers, but Brook gained our trust and always gave us a path forward. Her personality, creativity, and sense of humor made the experience more enjoyable than stressful. Ultimately we found a house we absolutely love. It was Brook's sound advice, diligence, and overall savvy that got us the keys. She was with us EVERY step of the way and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her.- Auburn and David "

Additionally, she knows the best people to contact for home inspections, engineers, contractors, and the like.

Most importantly she is a wonderful human who truly cares about her clients--look no further for a fantastic realtor!! - Julie W."

"Brook was immensely helpful. She knows her way around the Oakland real estate scene. I took her advice every step of the way and she was always right. I received nine jaw-dropping offers on my home within two days of her last open house and sold for way over the asking price. She was also attentive and kept in communication when I would worry about details. - Peggy O."
