Client Accolades:

“Bebe Mcrae is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail, hard work, and focus on client satisfaction is amazing. She is an absolute professional and her excellent work representing us, for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new dream home, made a difficult process a worry-free pleasure. I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate transactions.”         - Andy Ball, seller of 39 Crest Road., Piedmont

“Bebe McRae is the market maker! She commands efficiency and skill with amazing grace. We were so happy to have selected Bebe to represent us in the sale of our home. She made the complicated and intense process easy and successful.” - Terry and Stephen Friedkin, sellers of 9 Bridge Road

“You were absolutely phenomenal and thought of absolutely everything. I would have been thrilled if the only thing you did was sell the house for the price you did; but in addition, you made the whole process easier by taking care of all the details. THANK YOU!!!”  - Dr. Christine Carter, seller of 1871 Thousand Oaks

“Bebe, It was a short-lived time we spent together, but it was life-changing.  Thank you so much for the expertise and guidance you offered.  Absolutely love our home and we’ve really settled in--it all could never have been but for you!”  - Anthony and Julia Retort, buyers

“I’ve never worked with a more competent person in any field. Bebe has a unique ability to turn a stressful process into an enjoyable one. I’ve worked with her on three different transactions over the years. After each closing, my only disappointment has been that our work together has come to its natural end. She’s that good.” - Peter Wegner, buyer & seller (& buyer)

“In interviewing the East Bay’s top agents, each one promised ‘international luxury exposure for my estate’, ‘unparalleled access to top, professional couples’, and ‘personal showings to qualified buyers’. However, as I followed up with personal references, and carefully reviewed the sold properties in my elite pricing category, one name stood out above all the rest: Bebe McRae.”  -Tony Rich, Corporate President

“Bebe is the best in the East Bay and is very savvy, not only about the market but also in truly knowing what all the possibilities are. She is a huge source of knowledge and the experts she suggests to help for whatever needs or questions arise are always the best. -Ann Taylor, Buyer and Seller

Great planning + wonderful execution = outstanding Results!  Thank you! - Greg and Olga Rezneck

"Thank you for sending me a copy of the closing statement. I am sorry to have been so lax, (and late), in writing to thank your wonderful and out-of-the-ordinary help you gave in selling my house.

I never thought I was a ‘nervous’ person. But when I began thinking I had to sell my house, I became so distressed. I knew nothing about the process and I knew so much had to be done…and I could not be there while the work was being done, nor when the house was being shown.

I was able to leave all those problems with you…painters, gardeners, cleaners, trash hauler and a wonderful stager…and careful explanations of the ‘paperwork’!

Thank you Bebe! You did more than I ever expected and sold the house above the price I had hoped!" Sincerely, Carol Fremlin
