Ann sold our mother’s home in March of this year. She dealt expertly with all the details of selling a property held in trust, and the multiple family members and personalities involved! Ann guided us professionally through each step… from preparing the property for the market to sorting through over 10 offers!! Her attention to detail, knowledge of real estate and willingness to work hard made for a delightful experience! I highly recommend Ann to assist you in selling or buying real estate. When you have her working on your side, you can relax and enjoy the experience of professional service.
Sold our Mother’s House
I’ve worked with Ann 3 times over the years and quite frankly I wish I was going to be staying in the Bay Area longer so that we could work together more… She defines what a realtor should be in my mind. I’m not the easiest customer to please, but she sure takes my needs and quirks with a breeze. I couldn’t find one thing wrong to mention about Ann. On all the contracts we worked on together, she over exceeded our expectations and killed it for us. I’d take a bullet for Ms. Ann Wilkins anytime.
Killed it for us!
I relocated from Oakland to Chicago and ended up having to do a short sale on my Oakland home. This was a very stressful and unnerving process and Ann was there for me every step of the way. She truly is a professional and displayed an amazing amount of patience and kindness throughout the whole process. Ann did a magnificent job of managing my affairs while I was moving across country and dealing with moving into a new home. She even managed to help secure a nice rebate for me on the short sale. I am very grateful. It was a pleasure working with Ann. Five stars all the way!

Working with Ann was a superb experience, she had the patience, skills and expertise to guide me to the right home. I worked with several agents prior to working with Ann, and she clearly had the winning skill set. Most importantly, I felt she always had my best interests in mind. Ann’s the best, no doubt about it!
First Time Home Buyer
I worked with Ann selling my home in the Oakland Hills and purchasing a new home in the Berkeley flats. I don’t know how I could have managed this downsizing feat without her constant support and assistance.
She was there every step of the way and went above and beyond what I could have ever expected from a real estate agent.
Her familiarity with the area, her unbelievable patience and hand-holding, to getting me the best price selling and buying…well I can’t imagine having a better advocate and representative.
Even after the transaction was complete, she continued to be there to help me with moving and painting etc.
Our market is quite competitive and her knowledge, experience and capacity to relate to everyone in a kind yet professional way is really exceptional.
Ann is the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with.
To say Ann was fabulous is an understatement! Ann did a great job of familiarizing us with Oakland (we’re from San Francisco), explaining the various issues that seem to be Oakland-specific (rotated foundations, sewer lateral), and encouraging us to negotiate when we encountered unexpected issues with the house we bid on. Aside from the professional aspect, she’s a really nice and engaging person :).
I’m a very detail-oriented person with lots of questions, and Ann was always there to answer. And to be clear: Her answers weren’t “blow-off” answers like those that I’ve gotten in the past from agents, but clear, knowledgeable answers. She’s a very practical person and I always felt like she had my best interests in mind.
If you’re looking to buy in Oakland, I couldn’t recommend Ann highly enough. She’s also a seller’s agent. If I should ever sell again (I hope not), I would definitely work with Ann.
