What sets Heidi and Jerry apart from other real estate agents?

The Long Family

We have the same "toolbox" as everyone else-we utilize the multiple listing service, we offer internet search capability for buyers, and we use internet and print media and digital photography to publicize our listings.

What sets us apart is 20 years of experience, our extensive business network, and hundreds of successful transactions.

Buying or selling a home has become increasingly complicated. We carefully guide our buyers and sellers through the entire process so they can evaluate the condition of the house, its likely value, and understand and resolve issues that come up. We have written and negotiated hundreds of contracts and know how to protect your interests.

When representing sellers, we work as partners. Even in a strong market, expert preparation and marketing are important in order to maximize your proceeds. Together we are an effective and highly productive team. We will work very closely with you to make sure your house shows to its best advantage and provide you with a comprehensive marketing plan to ensure it receives maximum exposure.

This has been a tough market for buyers. We spend a lot of time educating our buyers and ensuring they are fully prepared to make a winning offer once we've located the right property.

Buying or selling a home is an important financial transaction. You deserve to know something about us before choosing us to represent you. Heidi was born in California, attended Mills College, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UC Davis. Jerry was born in Chicago and graduated from SF State University. After graduate school, Heidi worked as a paralegal, business coach, and human resources manager before going into real estate. Jerry completed graduate work in broadcasting and worked as an independent filmmaker and teacher. We enjoy food and wine, good books, art and archaeology, and family travel. In the past few years we have visited Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, and Mexico. Our kids attended Berkeley public schools (although our daughter is also an alum of the Julia Morgan School for Girls), played baseball, field hockey, and lacrosse, and, at the moment are excelling at Berkeley High School and USC. Jerry serves as an active member of the board of the Berkeley Public Library Foundation.

We are proud to be associated with Red Oak Realty which was founded in Berkeley in 1976 and now has thriving offices on Solano Avenue in Berkeley and Pleasant Valley Boulevard in Oakland. For many years, the San Francisco Business Times has included Red Oak in its list of the 25 most productive real estate companies in the five county Bay Area. One of the more wonderful things about Red Oak is its close ties to the community. We contribute a portion of each commission to our local schools and other community organizations through the Red Oak Opportunity Foundation (ROOF).

Since January 2000 we have sold over 150 properties including several architecturally distinguished homes. We represent first-time buyers, growing families and down-sizing families, people moving into Berkeley, people leaving Berkeley, probate and trust sales, and investors. We have an established network of brokers and former clients which enhances our marketing. We can refer you to an experienced, reputable agent anywhere in the US-just ask.

About seventy-five percent of our business comes from repeat clients and referrals. Choosing a realtor is an important decision. Please contact us if you'd like to arrange a personal meeting.
