About Linda Elkin

I enjoy helping people with important life choices, and that’s what led me to real estate. Buying or selling a home can take a significant amount of your focus and energy, and I am committed to make the process easier for each of my clients.

As a Realtor, my approach is multi-faceted. I believe it is essential that I maintain a wide range of skills: negotiation, communication, listening, education, consultation, emotional support, insight, intuition, intellectual analysis, financial savvy, and attention to the myriad of details while maintaining a vision of the big picture. All are critical to making sure your transaction is satisfactory and successful.


SELLERS

My service to you:
  • I am known for taking care of all the details before a home is placed on the market, ensuring that it shows its best from the very first viewing.
  • My marketing is carefully considered, well-designed, and diligently executed.
  • I am committed to strategically pricing my listings to attract the widest and best-qualified audience of buyers.

You can count on me to:
  • Educate you about current market conditions
  • Prepare a professional Comparable Market Analysis (CMA)
  • Communicate several times per week
  • Know which stager to select to prepare your home for sale
  • Recommend which pre-sale inspections are appropriate for your property
  • Provide an excellent list of subcontractors
  • Coordinate all the subcontractors’ work
  • Prepare a complete set of required disclosures
  • Implement an aggressive marketing plan
  • Negotiate strongly on your behalf
  • Be responsible for taking care of all the details

BUYERS

My service to you:
I have lived in the Bay Area -- San Francisco and Oakland -- since 1978. I have extensive knowledge of a wide variety of neighborhoods in Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont, Albany, El Cerrito, Kensington, and Richmond. I am familiar with many aspects of each neighborhood, including their different architectural styles, the typical size of both the houses and the lots, which schools are nearby, and various modes of transportation. This helps my clients when purchasing a home, as I can introduce them to neighborhoods they may not have known about or considered.

You can count on me to:
  • Listen to you and answer your questions
  • Explain the entire process of home buying
  • Educate you about current market conditions
  • Conduct a daily search for appropriate properties
  • Show you properties that fit your needs
  • Communicate on a regular basis
  • Provide experienced counsel when writing an offer
  • Provide you with a list of reputable lenders
  • Arrange very thorough inspections and bids
  • Help you to visualize cosmetic updating
  • Negotiate strongly on your behalf
  • Be responsible for taking care of all the details
  • Provide a complete file at close of escrow
  • Be present at escrow signing appointment at title company
  • Offer continued service beyond close of escrow
