Jet-setter chucks U.S. real estate for Holland

Laurie Santos“Back in 2002, I decided I wanted to buy myself a house that offered privacy and solitude. I was a single gal at the time working for the US Government and I dreamed of a quiet place with a view that had a wood-burning fireplace and was close to my family. I finally found a gorgeous end-unit with a lovely courtyard and balcony where I could sit and sip my morning tea while looking out at the Oakland hills.
“When we first walked into 3800 Maybelle #6, I literally knew it was the one. Maybelle had the brick wood-burning fireplace I dreamed of, a cozy backyard, a window over the kitchen sink to look out while washing dishes (there is a dishwasher, too), two stories, a view of the Oakland hills, tons of storage, a balcony, two master sized bedrooms, lots of light, trees and surrounding nature, all while gated for privacy (it is private property). It wasn’t an easy negotiation but fighting for my Maybelle was so worth it. When I moved in, it’s hard to explain, but Maybelle just had “good vibes.” There was such a nice, warm, loving energy about the place and the neighbors were wonderful. It just had the fresh, clean yet cozy energy about it. All the neighbors were so helpful (yet not nosy) and inviting.
“I loved that the Joaquin Miller and Richard C. Trudeau parks were just a stone’s throw away where I could run, hike and take my dog for long walks off-leash. Everything seemed so easy once I moved into Maybelle: the property manager was a quick walk away, the gas station to fill up the car was just down the street, a carpool pick up to San Francisco was also a walk away and the Laurel District boutiques offering yoga, organic markets, cafes and boutiques were all walking distance, too. The HOA board was very fair and supportive. Oh, and my favorite pizza place was around the corner.
“If I hadn’t gotten the chance to move overseas and live abroad, I would actually still be living in Maybelle today—it’s a perfect little gem. To date, I live in The Netherlands with my husband (he’s Dutch) where I work as a Corporate Trainer and Coach. He and I met on a plane bound for Kuwait where we were both working at the time. Last year, we bought an historical monument home in Holland and spend our time fixing it up, so I have no plans then to move back to Maybelle. I am selling Maybelle to give another person a chance to enjoy and love it as much as I did; it gave me a lot of peace of mind and it was also a wonderful place to host friends and family during the holidays. There are a lot of great memories and good energy left behind for the next person who wishes to call Maybelle their home sweet home…”

Celebrating over California sale proceeds

“It was a pleasure selling our house with the help of Anna and Greg. Anna recalled from HOA docs received from another sale that I was on the HOA and knew my last name when we met. We were surprised that the townhouse she had worked on before sold higher than the listing price at that time when the market wasn’t as hot!  

“When my husband and I first met with Anna and Greg, we were unsure of when to list and they  encouraged us to explore different options and to consider our situation and not immediately list it. It was the little and big things that mattered. To name a few:  bringing a replacement light bulb for our dining room light to having a stager come in to advise us and having a professional photographer take beautiful pics, that makes Anna and Greg stand out.

“We were nervous about the process but they calmed us and kept us on track. Once offers came in, Anna discussed them with us. When we got a really great offer, she advised us of the pros and cons and knew what we needed to do to protect ourselves. What attracted us to use Realty World Neighbors is that they are a local Hayward realtor. They both live and love the community and it really shows. We knew they could best sell our townhouse because their enthusiasm is real!

“They did more than just sell the townhouse — they sold the entire community. Part of “selling” the community included researching which historical members of the local community were buried across the street at the cemetery. We had this list available at the open house so potential buyers could appreciate the history of the area instead of just the fact that there was a cemetery across the street. 

“We would not hesitate to recommend Anna and Greg to friends buying or selling their homes or use them again ourselves if the opportunity presented itself.”
