There are several things that Anna is passionate about conveying to her Clients:
ONE: She takes her role as a Seller or Buyer Agent seriously and only works with the most serious Buyers and Sellers. This ensures her time and talents in her real estate business are clearly focused on her Clients. She always asks to personally present her Buyer Clients' offers, especially in multiple competing offer situations. She clearly articulates the reasons a Seller should find her Buyers' offers acceptable and many a Buyer Client has benefited from her negotiation skills. For her Seller Clients, she clearly communicates what it would take for her Sellers to find a buyers' offer acceptable and has often negotiated for a higher amount in her Sellers' pockets.
TWO: She knows how important it is to network with fellow REALTORS. When she negotiates a contract for her Buyer and Seller Clients, chances are, she has worked with the cooperating agent in the past on real estate transactions or has already built a strong reputation for being thorough, complete and fair -- not only in the REALTOR community but in the community at large. This established business and community reputation is a definite advantage for her Clients' benefit.
THREE: She has a great team! In addition to having the best business partner, she also has a Buyer's Agent & Transaction Coordinator. Sharing the same office suite is a meticulous property management company that handles the landlord-tenant aspects of real estate. Having responsible and responsive people surrounding her enables her to do what she does best -- negotiate for and promote the needs of her Clients.
Known since her restaurant days for coming up with catchy phrases that get people to take notice of her marketing, Anna has earned several achievement awards and accolades over the years for her professional endeavors. In addition to being recognized as a top real estate agent, she was featured in the coveted East Bay Business Times "40 Under 40" shortly after being voted "Best Real Estate Agent" in the Daily Review reader's choice poll. Most recently, she was presented with the "Rotarian of the Year Award" for the Rotary Club of F.U.N. Sunset where she has served as Membership Chair, having led the effort to gain a nearly 50% increase in membership. She now serves on the Board of Directors as Vocational Chair and also serves at the district level as Area 2 Membership Assistant. Anna is also the Founder & President of the Mt. Eden High School Alumni Association & Educational Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the educational pursuits of high school students while they are still enrolled.
She's been an active member of the Chamber of Commerce since her early 20's and has served as a Chamber Ambassador. In addition to her professional & community involvement, she is the youngest woman to win a City Council election in her hometown. Her signature City Council duties included many decisions that protect private property rights in addition to kick-starting the film & media effort in her city. As a former Commissioner for the Housing Authority of the County of Alameda, she introduced the first landlord to the Commission in many years, insisting that we must have balance in all endeavors. She occasionally shows up on TV commercials and in film roles and is a proud member of the SAG-AFTRA.
Anna lives in the east bay with her husband and business partner Greg Jones. Their "He Said, She Said" blog allows for some fun expression of what they run into daily in their real state business and as husband & wife business partners. They love pit bulls and have two named "Piglet" and "Rufus the Dufus". Their mission is continue the success in their real state business and serving their clients well so they can continue saving the lives of homeless and animals at the animal shelter.
