Laura

Seller

Eileen and her team did a fantastic job representing us for the sale of our house in the Montclair hills. While I was hesitant to want to stage the house and move out for open houses, Eileen assured us it was it was the best option to get the best price - and boy was she right! Eileen was also available to us at all times, and she definitely helped ease any nerves we may have had when those inevitable issues come up in the process of selling a house. We could not be happier with her and her team, and if we decide to buy again in the Bay Area, she will be the first call we will make! We highly recommend working with Eileen and her team because they are the best!

Lisa

Buyer

I was making a cross country move that was taking place during the height of the pandemic, Compass was godsend. We had to contend with time zone differences, and although I was able to work seamlessly with their website selecting homes from afar - she worked with me to physically visit several when I came into town. But we ultimately ended up doing it all remotely using Facetime for the walkthroughs while she provided detailed descriptions of the area and what she was experiencing. I was lucky enough to have family nearby who could follow up and she was available to let them in to take a look after I made my decision. Timing was of the essence and we worked well as a team to get the deal done relatively quickly. She worked with her team and mine to keep everyone on task to get to my closing table. After an emotionally charged year, and with the normal stress that comes with a life changing move - Megan's professionalism took a lot of the stress out of the process. She had the answers I needed to my questions and was extremly responsive. Then after I moved in, she referred me to a contractor, that built a beautiful custom set of bookshelves and closet for me.

Beth

Buyer

“During these weird pandemic times, I chose Eileen to guide me in purchasing a condominium in the East Bay through the recommendation of another respected real estate professional in another county. Eileen helped me along the process of searching, showings, procuring the loan, reams of virtual paperwork and closing. This can be a stressful process and Eileen’s expertise was reassuring and, essential, actually. She listened to what was important to me, and what was important to me was owning the parking spot that went with the unit. She noticed a discrepancy in the paperwork regarding the parking spot not being included in the Deed, and even though it was late in the process and a lesser realtor would probably have just shuffled it off, she went to bat for me and got the parking spot included in the grant Deed, doing whatever needed to be done to make it right. This is one fantastic realtor! You could not ask for a better professional than Eileen Townsend.”

Isabelle

Seller

“I sold my (beloved) house in Oakland in record time and for a much higher price than I expected. And I absolutely credit Eileen’s skills for this successful sale. From her files, she was able to pull the names of stagers, a sewer guy and a roofer who saved the day when they were needed. She also managed them for me, as I had no time to do that myself. On top of that, Eileen is a pleasure to deal with, a smart analyst of situations, and an island of calm and courtesy in the transactions tempest.”

Beverley

Seller

“My long-time rental in Berkeley was not the easiest to let go … I donated it for tax purposes and that made it a complicated transaction with many details to watch. Eileen was careful with all the detail … One of Eileen’s strengths is that she recognized what’s needed – both from a “task” perspective and the human perspective … and jumped on it and keep the task moving forward, while paying proper attention to the level of detail needed to comply with complicated legal/tax/paperwork needs, all while being supportive.”

Eileen Townsend was very professional and experienced. We used her services to sell two homes in West Oakland. I would certainly recommend her and use her services again.

Great Experience. First thing is Megan Gurrentz from Eileen Townsend & Team helped me to buy a condo last year. She was very professional and knowledgeable on all aspects of the real estate process. She is a very friendly person to work with, she works hard to make the whole process go easily. She was always on time and ready for our meetings and open houses. I would recommend her to everyone. Thanks Megan for all your help

Les

Seller

They were great - I listed with them - they suggested an asking price, I had it professionally staged with one of their recommended vendors. Had several offers >100k over asking. Closed early - great experience.

Sabina

Eileen and her team made this process so easy! Whenever anything needed to be done or changed they always let us know and gave us simple easy instructions to follow! This was a big project and the house was beautiful when it was time to list! Everyone involved was very knowledgeable and professional. When we didn’t understand something they were extremely patient and explained it until we understood. I would definitely encourage anyone getting ready to sell or buy a home to look into working with this incredible team. Thank you all so much!
