"After trying 3 different real estate agents and different companies, we found Randy Ratto at an open house more than 4 years ago.(no joke, first impressions can make the difference). Randy was nice, informative and not pushy. We talked with him for a while, then we asked for his card and our journey to buy a house began. Randy went above and beyond showing us homes, making offers..."
WHY USE AN AGENT TO SELL?
When the market is favoring the Seller, it may seem like a slam-dunk to sell a home. But there are so many ways things can go wrong for a seller who tries to represent themselves in selling a home.
The legal aspects of the contract alone are getting harder to navigate and seller’s need a professional that can write a solid contract, protecting their interests. In this fast market, of an average of 15 days on the market, using an Agent is more likely to get a fair market value for your home, assist with qualified buyers, and make sure your investment is represented properly and sold.
WHY USE AN AGENT TO BUY?
They have a ton of training! Buying a home requires lots of forms, reports, documents, disclosures, and other technical stuff. Agents can help you prepare an offer, advise you with contingencies, avoid costly mistakes, and delays in the process.
Real Estate Agents have even more search power than you do when it comes to finding listings that fit your criteria.
They know how to negotiate. It’s their job to help you be successful in this market. Knowing what to negotiate and what favors not to ask is part of their skill set.
They are connected to everyone in the industry. Agents make it their job to know everyone that can possibly help in the process of buying. Mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, stagers, and more, are in their network.
Whether you are buying from a friend or relative, you should have someone that has your back representing your interests. Buying a home is one of the largest purchases you will ever make.
“Owning a home is a keystone to wealth...
both financial affluence and emotional security.”

I have worked with Quentin Hyde as an investor on many Real Estate transactions and her currently manages my rental property. His knowledge of the East Bay Real Estate market is unmatched. Quentin has made each of the Real Estate transactions we have worked on together effortless (so that I can focus on my business) and he had a knack for finding the right properties that fit my investment model. I would recommend Quentin to everyone from the First Time Homebuyer to a seasoned investor. You will not be disappointed.

Quentin completed a sale for a family property in 2015, and it was a remarkably smooth experience. Quentin walked us through the entire process, from planning, pricing strategy, listing, photography, deal negotiation through closing.
