|The Following Individuals Have Worked Directly With The Beard Realty Team And Have Offered Their Comments About Their Experiences:|
“The Beard Realty team, and in particular Stephen and Basak, were invaluable during the emotionally and logistically difficult process of remodeling and selling my mother's house during Covid. I and my sisters chose them over other realtors because of their integrity, but we also got Stephen's deep experience and extensive market knowledge along with Basak's architectural and design skills and her respect for our family and the house. They answered all of our questions, resolved issues as quickly as possible, and did everything they could for the marketing campaign. They guided us through the transformation of our childhood home and enabled us to do far more than we ever thought we could, and we were really pleased with the results. I will definitely use them again if I ever need a real estate agent.”

"Stephen and his group were nothing short of spectacular in handling the inspections, recommending the financial broker that would fit our situation, as well as handling all the VA loan papers. The whole team works closely together and is definitely on top of their game. Would highly recommend them to anyone."

“The Stephen Beard Realty team represents an excellent business model. They are both consummate professionals with regard to their industry knowledge and service plus a responsible, ethical community resource. Stephen demonstrated a great deal of flexibility, integrity, and support during a complicated transaction, made more complex by the COVID realities. His staff was always helpful, personable, and responsive. I will always be grateful for the referral to Stephen and highly recommend him to potential clients.”

“We are beyond happy with Basak and Stephen's extensive knowledge in the real estate field, attentiveness, and level of professionalism. The process of home buying can be overwhelming, especially as first-timers like us, but they helped make it so much easier. They are honest people who care for your interests. We are truly happy with our home, and would recommend them in a heartbeat!”

"I'm a wheelchair user (paraplegic) who moved to the Bay Area in 2015 and rented many apartments. Because of the cost of real estate in the area, I assumed that I would never be able to purchase a home here. That was 5 years ago when I was in my early 20s. After dealing with broken elevators, inaccessible kitchens, & tiny bathrooms, I decided at the end of 2019 I wanted to buy. At first, I went solo and tried sites that got me absolutely nowhere. Every house or condo I saw was inaccessible. Getting there was a hassle and the agents were ignorant about the needs of people with disabilities. Then I Googled "Bay Area wheelchair home purchase" and probably "ADA home buying Oakland." Guess who popped up? The Beard Realty team. From our first conversation to key delivery, Stephen and Basak were friendly, honest, and transparent. Even when I wanted to see 2-story lofts, they were willing to accompany me on the tour and problem-solve with me. I not only ended up with a beautiful home in a great neighborhood, but I learned a lot along the way. At the beginning of a pandemic no less, what I thought was probably impossible turned possible and then real. Wanna buy a house? Call Stephen. Even if you don't have a disability. If you DO have a physical disability, definitely call Stephen. Or email him as I did :-) Now, off to continue making my new home wheelchair user's paradise..."

"My wife and I have both bought and sold a home with Stephen as our realtor. We went back to him after our first experience because he is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. Both the buying and selling process was made very easy with Stephen. We feel we paid a fair price as well as sold our home for a fair price and both were accomplished in the shortest time possible. I would highly recommend working with Stephen to anybody looking to buy or sell a property."
