"I would like to strongly recommend choosing Lisa Blackwell and Paula J. Harrell as your prospective agent and mortgage broker for any real estate transaction. I have been in the home buying process for the past year where I had to put in several offers to no avail. Within two weeks of working with Lisa, I found a property I liked and got my offer accepted. She really knows the Bay Area neighborhoods and is very well connected amongst real estate agents and other professionals one may need to close a real estate transaction. Both Lisa and Paula worked tirelessly in tandem as the dynamic duo to close my purchase despite many ups and downs. These two amazing ladies kept an overly aggressive selling agent and developer in contract (90 days) during a seller’s market. There were times I had doubts about the transaction closing but was reassured by their strategy and skill in making my home buying dreams a reality." - Kwame Asafo-Adjei

"My husband and I have sold many properties in numerous communities across the nation and Lisa Blackwell has been an outstanding partner in our recent local transactions. Our requirements for our most recent transaction were to sell the property, manage the renovation and close our home while realizing a certain profit in 60 days. Lisa met our demands and even exceeded them, selling our property in record time, at the highest $/sqft to date, with little involvement from us, saved us money on the reno and sold at a higher price than we expected. We are thankful that Lisa was recommended to us and endorse her as a high level professional with a team that go the extra miles for her clients and is a real pleasure to work with." - Gladys Moore

"I can’t thank Lisa enough. Having her sell my home was a wonderful experience, she was kind, listened to what was important to me, and did an exceptional job of paying attention to market changes- all to put more money into my pocket! I have already referred her to people I know and would recommend her to anyone to be their real estate advisor." - Crystal Mason, Seller of 6302 Rocky Point Drive Oakland CA

"Lisa's a great real estate agent and advisor. She listened to our needs, helped us find a great location for our home, and made sure that we get the house we wanted. Lisa was very patient. Our interactions with her were great. We really liked that she provided us with great advice: for example, how much the house will likely sell for and the comps. Lisa had a quick turnaround especially every time we made an offer. Lastly, she introduced us to amazing people that helped us with our home, like the architect and the loan people. She has a great process in place. It was spot on. We're very satisfied with the service she provided and wouldn't have changed anything during our home buying experience with her." - Genevieve Humphrey, Buyer of 698 Santa Ray Oakland CA

"Lisa Blackwell and her team represented us across different asset classes and neighborhoods in both San Francisco and the East Bay and each representation has been successful and enjoyable. In every scenario, she listened to what was important to us and then did what it took to deliver success as we defined it. This ran the gamut from off-market sales to traditional marketing and open house marketing campaigns and negotiating multiple offers. She went above and beyond, paid attention to what was going on, and acted quickly whenever a situation came up. For one property after just days on the market, Lisa made a total pivot to the marketing campaign when the feedback showed a very specific likely buyer. In all cases, she was assertive about getting us what we wanted, mitigating our risk at every juncture, and made it as pleasant as possible by communicating frankly and kindly throughout the process. Having her represent me has been a great personal experience and sound business decision. I would recommend Lisa Blackwell to anyone without reservation." -Kelly Finley
