About Stephen Beard

Our Commitment is Your Peace of Mind”

It is not just our slogan, it is also the way we do business.

My entire career has been built on a foundation of professionalism, dependability, commitment and reliability. I have succeeded by building trust relationships with everyone I work with. If you are looking for a home or trying to sell one, my superior market knowledge and focus on keeping you informed every step of the way will ensure a successful transaction. You can also be assured that the details associated with your purchase or sale will be taken care of by me. In the end, that means less worry and anxiety for you. After all, my commitment is your peace of mind.

My business philosophy is fundamental to who I am and how I do business, but beyond that are a few personal details I want to share…

I was born in Toronto, Canada, but have lived in the Bay Area since 2000. I am now pleased to call the Marina Bay neighborhood in Richmond home. I have professional experience in real estate sales, journalism, software product marketing, and project management. I hold two bachelors degrees…one in Business Administration and another in Journalism.

Our clientele consist of all types of buyers and sellers, but we specialize in providing real estate services for people with disabilities. I have Cerebral Palsy, which affects my gait. I have first-hand experience dealing with some of the limitations and fears that make the home buying process stressful for people with disabilities. Our clients are confident in the knowledge that they are working with Realtors who know what makes homes accessible and where to find accessible homes in our area. We are also a resource for our clients on issues around special financing, local community supports, and custom home renovations.

We are committed to giving back to the disability community. I am a member of the Alameda County Developmental Disabilities Planning and Advisory Council and serve as the Co-Chairperson of the Legislative Committee. I also serve on the Development Committee of East Bay Innovations, a non-profit dedicated to empowering people with developmental disabilities with supported housing and employment opportunities. Additionally, a percentage of each closed escrow is donated back to organizations that serve people with disabilities.

So whether you are buying or selling, dealing with disability, or just curious about the home buying process, We would be delighted to help. Please contact me at 510-364-6795.
