Make a Grand Entrance!

make_a_grand_entrance_progers.png

The entrance to your home matters.

In takes only a few moments for a buyer to determine if they are interested in your home. Making your entry way inviting from exterior to interior will set the stage for the buyer experience. 

Feng Shui suggests the use of color and elements to support the direction of your front door. Think Wood, metal, clay plant pots, plants, perhaps a fountain and brightly colored or dark front door, and chic lighting.

When previewing homes I look at homes as my buyers would. How does it look now, what improvements could be made? Where does that figure into the value and who is the right buyer for each type of home?

Investing in the very first impression that your property makes from the front yard to your entrance is key to your homes value, desirability and successful sale. Make it a wow moment!

99 Evergreen in Berkeley SOLD: #ModicumOfCharm Mid Century Mod

99evergreen_berkeley_pattyrogers.png

It's hard to pick a favorite 2017 SOLD home, though this fabulous mid-century modern find was in a fantastic location and featured outstanding views. Move-in ready with lots of upgrade possibilities. This home has more than a "modicum of charm" it's downright fabulous. Purchased by designers and ready to reach new design heights. Represented Buyer.

Seeing the potential in real estate is all about value. Not just financially in the moment, also in future potential. That's where I find homes with a #modicumofcharm. Homes that have fantastic bones, personality, with literal room for possibilities. Location, views, room to breathe. I've got an eye for unique and functional real estate and an intuition in matching you with the home that surprises.

San Francisco's East Bay is loaded with homes with potential.

Take a chill pill in Oakland CA, where we have plenty of open space to get your nature on.

Joaquin Miller Park - 3450 Joaquin Miller Rd., Oakland

Check out Lookout Point (intersection of Bishop's Walk and Sinawik Trail) is where the amazing views are. There are some nice shaded trails and plenty of hiking. Great stair running at Woodward Amphitheater and there's a dog park! Bonus points.

Redwood Regional Park - 7867 Redwood Rd., Oakland

Redwood Groves and interconnecting trails, elevation and rich scenery. A park to explore. Mostly shady, picnic areas. Parking lots abound and it's free so get there early. Beware of poison ivy and careful for the cyclists!

Plenty of open space without shade or trees and awesome views of bay. The hills aren't to steep and navigating the trails is easy. Catch the top ridge train for fab views of the San Francisco Bay and East Bay.

Life in Emeryville...

Lifeinemeryville_pattyrogers.png

Emeryville lies between Oakland and Berkeley! Emeryville was once an extensive Native American settlement on the mudflats next to the San Francisco Bay. Meat packing plants eventually moved in to process cattle from nearby ranches, bringing the first of many industries to the area. Today, Emeryville is the corporate headquarters for such well-known names as Pixar, Peet’s Tea and Coffee, Clif Bar, The Center for Investigative Reporting and Jamba Juice. The city also boasts the Bay Street shopping center complex that includes Ikea and a multiplex movie theater. The city also has its own Amtrak station, marina and shoreline park.

Emeryville is only 1.27 square miles and has a population of nearly 12,000, but offers many terrific amenities for such a small, urban city. You will find alot of condos with fabulous gyms, green space, parking, community rooms here and multi family housing. The median home value is $518,900 which has risen 9% since last year.

2018 Color of the Year!

Looking to stay on trend with your home design paint colors? This year Sherwin-Williams has named their Color of the Year SW 6496 Oceanside 172-C7.

PattyRogers_SWColoroftheyear2018.jpg

Will the blue trend, replace the grey trend which replaced the beige trend? The mix of blue green is deep and warm and could make for a great accent wall, or on cabinets. I think the color for a Sofa would be nice...in layman's terms, I would call it a dark Teal. 

Let me know what you think of this color? Would you use it on the interior or exterior of your home and where? Do you think it lends well to other projects? What do you think?

Ha! Ha! - Funny Real Estate Video I had to share

Some of you may have seen this on the Ellen Degeneres Show. I admire the pluck of these agents for sharing their "talent" and for even making and publishing a video, though I'm not sure I'd take this route. What do you think of the quality of his rap and editing in the 2nd video? Did he want it to be perceived as funny as it is? However, it has gone viral! I am producing a video about my business. Do you think I should include my humorous side, or should it be all business?
