Seller Testimonials
What our sellers say about working with us

Ira and Carol were wonderful to work with. They answered the phone when I called, or called me back the same day. They called me with updates on what was happening. They actually were present at the open houses that they had. Unbelievable! (more...)
Joan Trombley, Residence Club

At all times we have found you to be professional, caring, informative, and fun to work with! Additionally, my dad is 83 years old, so you have been particularly helpful to both us in helping my dad through the transition of the sale of his home of 49 years. (more...)

We needed a real estate agent who would be understanding of our needs, knowledgeable of the area, market, and effective in bringing the sale to closure in a short period of time.

We turned to a family member who had retired from the real estate business, for references. With no hesitation and with absolute confidence he recommended the Serkes... the Berkeley experts... who will take care of all your needs! Now we owe both the family friend and Ira and Carol Serkes team a great deal of gratitude! (more...)

Please allow us to express our heartfelt THANK YOU for your wonderful job obtaining an astounding offer toward the sale of our home in Rockridge (Oakland CA) recently!
Working with you two presents a unique opportunity for home buyers/sellers. One that can best be described through the old cliché of… “Two for the price of one.”
