”Chet Gohd is the Greatest Realtor In The Business!
Never have our expectations been so pleasantly and thoroughly exceeded! Chet recently helped my wife and I purchase our first home in California. Despite our limited knowledge of Oakland, Chet took no more than one afternoon to help us locate the neighborhood we wanted to live in, and he had our home styling preferences dialed within three visits in that same day. Having been born and raised in Oakland, Chet’s an expert of this market like no one else.
Chet is charming, patient and incredibly knowledgeable, but what really sets him apart from every other realtor in the business is his commitment to making his clients’ dreams come true. When we signed on the , we assumed we wouldn’t be hearing from Chet again until we sell one day years from now. This was not the case. Our home is a bit of a fixer upper, and without having to be asked, Chet took the lead interviewing and scheduling time with contractors and engineers. He drops by to make sure we’re settling in well, and he’s always available to share advice on everything from remodeling permits to the best pizza joint in the neighborhood.
In summary, Chet is just an all-around great guy, and we look forward to a lifetime of his friendship and mentorship.
If you’re in the market for a home, do yourself a favor and schedule some time with Chet. We promise, it’s the best decision you’ll ever make!”

"We can't thank Chet enough for all the hard work and dedication he put into helping us acquire our dream home! We ran into him by chance while checking out various houses and spent the better part of an hour just chatting with him. We immediately felt comfortable and knew he was the guy we needed on our side. Chet wouldn't just tell us what he thought we wanted to hear, he explained when things weren't ideal, and would offer valuable advice along the way. After checking out many homes, we came across one we absolutely fell in love with. We sent the info over to Chet thinking that there was no way we would actually be able to get this home. He went above and beyond working his magic and was able to get the seller to accept our pre-emptive offer before they had even began to look at other offers. We couldn't believe it and couldn't have been more ecstatic! His vast knowledge and insight into the housing market was key. I'd recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor."

"Chet was amazing. As first time buyers, we had our fair share of questions I’m sure he’d answered a million times before, but he was very responsive and happy to jump on a call or address a quick text message. We had gone through a few other agents before, but Chet was the only one who got to know us well enough to understand what we were looking for in a house. That meant we didn’t have any wasted time looking at homes that wouldn’t work for us. Not only was he great with guiding us through the process, Chet also gave us a ton of recommendations for things to do, places to eat, and sights to see in our new neighborhood. We couldn’t be happier in our new home. Thank you Chet!"

"Chet helped us sell our house in Oakland that needed some extensive renovation work. Chet spent a lot of time helping out with the renovation work which took a few months. He had contractors lined up for everything and was able to get them to respond quickly for very reasonable prices. We ended up getting a top price for a house that would have sold for at least 20% less without the renovations. We are more than pleased with Chet's contributions - he goes above and beyond what an average realtor would do."
