Hope Broderick and I first met in early 2020, just prior to the pandemic. My plan was to sell the Oakland home I’d owned since 1993 and relocate to Los Angeles. There were lots of pieces to organize – prune, pack, move, sell. Hope immediately helped me build a smooth, workable plan. But then the pandemic put everything on hold. When we resumed in 2021, Hope and her team were ready to kick things into high gear. And once again, Hope made it all easy, at every step streamlining everything from legal documents to the staging process to financial logistics, organizing an effective listing and so much more. By the time we reached the selling stage, I’d already moved. In theory, that might make selling complicated, but thanks to Hope and her team, we didn’t miss a beat. The staging was beautiful. The listing was flawless. Swiftly, offers were generated and we were able to sell my home rapidly, at a higher price than we’d listed it for. Through all of this, Hope and her team were exceptionally organized when it came to guiding me through various stages of paperwork. It would be impossible to imagine a better team guiding someone through the home-selling process. Each stage: thoroughly first-rate.
