Sheila has the gift of quickly connecting with people, and she enjoys the often complex process of successfully concluding a Real Estate transaction -- a process marked throughout by knowledgeable and forthright communication with the clients whose interests she serves.
She takes care to be well-informed and has the skills and experience to guide -- and to respond -- calmly, appropriately, and with imagination.
Born and raised in Oakland, Sheila has spent the greater part of her life in Montclair, and now enjoys living with her family -- her husband and their two very active school-aged children -- just minutes from Montclair Village. She has long-term and firsthand knowledge of the community, the ebb and flow of its daily life, and what it offers to people fortunate to live here.
Sheila attended Bishop O’Dowd High School and received her BA from Santa Clara University. Before working in Real Estate, Sheila taught High School English for several years and was a top job placement recruiter in downtown San Francisco. Both professions drew upon and enhanced her interpersonal skills and capacity for quick analysis and stellar communication. She is active in her community, having recently led fundraising campaigns for local charities and her children's school, where she currently serves as Vice President of the Parents Group Board.
The residential real estate business today is a very competitive and rewarding endeavor. In 2016 Sheila was recognized by the Grubb Company for her tenacious sales accomplishments. “Sheila is an extremely smart communicator who has honed professional skills that the brokerage community truly respects and recognizes.” – - DJ Grubb
What her client’s say…
“Sheila is a fabulous realtor who helped us purchase our first home in Rockridge. She is friendly, organized and demonstrated tremendous follow-through. She was flexible with her time and always made herself available to visit houses at times that were convenient for us (including nights and weekends). We felt supported by her every step of the way and trusted her input.”
- Will and Kate
“Sheila has an amazing way of understanding people’s needs and desires. We are so lucky to have found her.”
- Joe and Kelsey
“Most importantly, Sheila was able to quickly get to know what we were looking for and present us with options, even pushing our boundaries at times to make sure we weren’t missing opportunities in neighborhoods we hadn’t considered. In all our months of looking, she never pushed us, and we never felt pressure to bid on a house that wasn’t just right for us.”
- Tom and Amy
“My husband and I have bought homes all over the country. The Bay Area was a head scratching experience to say the least. Luckily we met Sheila Johnson at an open house. Her positive attitude, integrity, and personal attention is unparalleled to any experience we have had in purchasing a home. With her as our realtor we were able to get a home that we absolutely love at a comfortable price! Thank you Sheila!”
- Brett and Starre
“Sheila's consummate professionalism, intimate knowledge of the area (a life-long resident of the area, she knows all the ins and outs of each neighborhood), and delightful personality made all the difference for us.”
- Steve and Gypsy
“We've worked with a lot of realtors through our various moves and what sets Sheila apart is that she really listened to exactly what our priorities were in our home search. She then was able to recommend homes that were a match---many that we weren't initially considering. And as our priorities evolved (as they often do in home searches), she quickly pivoted along with us.”
