Real Clients. Real Results.
"I think we lucked out with Amy though I like to believe my thorough research on local REALTOR® in the Tri-Valley had something to do with it! She was able to flex and work with our pace- we saw houses across Pleasanton, Danville, San Ramon and Dublin across 2 Saturdays- 10-15 houses each day and made the first offer and landed it! We couldn’t have asked for a better partner to help us in this big milestone! Thanks much Amy!"
Home Buyer / Seller
"We were extremely satisfied with Julia, Amy, and the Murtagh team representing our sale of our single-family home in Pleasanton. During our first meeting, Julia, Amy, and her team immediately helped us develop a strategy to sell our house quickly at a favorable price point in a challenging real estate market. It was clear from our strategy meeting that they were knowledgeable about our neighborhood and other areas of Pleasanton as well as comparable markets in the Tri-Valley, and it helped us identify how to best prepare our home to go on the market. As inexperienced sellers, Julia and Amy were responsive, supportive, and patient with our questions and offered sound advice on making our house attractive to buyers. Both Julia and Amy represented us well in sale negotiations. They were extremely professional with potential buyers, effectively communicated the buyer landscape when we put our house on the market, had great instincts during negotiations. They kept us in the loop during the entire process. All of this led to a quick, smooth sale at a great price point, and this allowed us to take advantage of the changing real estate market when we became buyers. We highly recommend Julia, Amy, and the Murtagh team if you are considering selling or buying your home in the Tri-Valley area."
"Amy helped us buy and sell a home over the summer. She was amazing and available night and day for any questions or to schedule showings we wanted to see quickly. We appreciated the open lines of communication and willingness to talk us through any little thing that came up. If you're looking for an agent give Amy a call."
