Tia helped my husband and I buy a house in Oakland. After more than a year with another realtor, when Tia told us she had never worked with a buyer who she couldn't find a house for in less than two months, we both thought, "oh no, we're going to break this nice woman's record!" But sure enough, she quickly found the perfect house at the perfect price and worked hard to make sure it all worked out. My husband and I really wanted to understand every aspect of the process and she was so patient and thorough in her explanations. Tia is a lovely person and an excellent realtor who works hard and does everything with grace and skill. I highly recommend contacting her if you want to buy a home in Oakland.
