A snap shot about Red Oak

Red Oak Realty is one of the largest independent real estate brokerages in the East Bay.  Their listings sell faster and above asking than the largest brokerages in the area, including commercial firms.

Through August Red Oak’s transactions were up 13% year over year (the market fell overall 2%) and our sales volume was up 28% (the market is up 15%). Our growth in the $1M+ market was also steep, up 42% year over year.  

We are a hyper-local independent brokerage with National coverage and National connections. We were handpicked as members of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate as well as Leverage Global Partners. These exclusive associates ensure our luxury listings receive national and international exposure to the top brokerages around the world. 

In addition, we offer support from our two sales managers, one who is an attorney and the other who is certified in conflict resolution and mediation, and we have a four-person transaction team, who handles all of our files in an a fast, efficient and -- of course -- highly ethical manner.

We have the most innovative, creative and directive marketing department in the area. Their capabilities to cater to each project have received national recognition. Our marketing director is available to look at any neighborhood, analyze it and build a marketing strategy around that demographic.  

Our Team and Services


  • When we take a new listing or help a buyer get into escrow, the Transaction Department at Red Oak Realty helps to coordinate the transaction from the initial listing agreement or contract acceptance to close of escrow.  The Transaction Department works with us to assure that all documentation is received and all deadlines are met in accordance with the California Department of Real Estate. A representative from the department will contact you as soon as we get into escrow to introduce herself and give you her contact details.  Throughout escrow this same person will contact you directly to inform you of any outstanding documentation that is needed as well as ensure that the other side is performing as necessary.  At the end of the transaction, you will receive a complete copy of the file on a CD.  The Transaction Department is an important step in providing you with a smooth experience.


  • Our staff of highly creative and intellectual individuals produces the advertising materials used to market your home for sale. The world has moved online, and a strong web presence is imperative to create the best first impression to potential buyers perusing homes on the web.  Utilizing the talents of a local, outstanding professional photographer, we will hire only the best to showcase your home beautifully. Our marketing team is also responsible for our media and public relations presence while utilizing the most effective technological and print resources to market your property for a successful sale.
