Her territory encompasses the entire East Bay Area with focus on Danville, Blackhawk, San Ramon, Alamo, Diablo, Pleasanton, Lafayette, Livermore, Walnut Creek, Oakland, and Berkeley, and, Yasmine is always willing to go the extra mile by crossing boundaries and helping friends and family throughout the Bay Area. She has developed a deep knowledge of these communities and built a network of Real Estate-related professionals that is second to none. Her broad list of services includes staging advice when preparing a home to sell, helping her client find the perfect list price, a marketing strategy that will sell a home quickly and assisting her buyers in choosing the right lender, as well as guiding them through every step of the buying process.
By asking the right questions, Yasmine prides herself on understanding and relating to the personal and financial goals that are most important to her clients. “I have a strong belief,” she says, “that integrity, trust, and ethics are not just words, but principles that are a vital part of my approach to all facets of life, but particularly in my business.”
