Why Work With Bernard & Michelle

All agents are not the same! When you work with Bernard & Michelle, you get Bernard & Michelle. Unlike many agents, we’ll never pass you on to an assistant or “Team Member”. With us, it’s personal. You’ll always talk to us and we’ll keep you fully informed on progress every step of the way

Our philosophy is based on the concept of always doing the best we possibly can for our buyers and sellers. Many people find buying or selling a home to be a traumatic experience, and a big part of our job is to help you cope with anything that arises.

When you want to buy a home, we know that you are not just thinking in terms of numbers of bedrooms, bathrooms and square feet of living space. And it’s not just about how much you want to spend either. Everybody’s needs and wants are different, which is why we think it is so important to meet face-to-face as early as possible in the process so we can get to know what you really want in a home. With that approach, we can make sure you don’t miss anything that could be just right for you.

When you list your home for sale with us, in addition to exceptional marketing and promotion of your home, we arrange for pre-listing inspections , top quality photography and video (including aerial and/or twilight shots as appropriate), as well as professional staging. All this is at no additional cost to you. We also advise on cost-effective improvements to help your home sell fast and for a higher price.

Our Background

We were born and raised in the north of England where Bernard worked in technology related companies in engineering, sales and marketing positions. Bernard’s daughter, Michelle, moved to California many years ago after deployments in the British Royal Air Force in England and Germany. Bernard, with his wife, Sylvia, Michelle’s mother, followed her some time later when Bernard was given the opportunity to take up a leadership position in an international consulting firm.

By this time, Michelle was an established Realtor, and she subsequently persuaded Bernard that real estate would be the ideal career move for him. 

Bernard made the move into the real estate industry in 2001, Since then, he notes that it is one of the most satisfying moves he ever made. In addition to combining many of the skills gained in previous positions, it provides an exceptional level of satisfaction in helping people realize their real estate dreams at all price points.

An avid woodworker, when he’s not involved with Real Estate, Bernard can often be found making furniture in his woodshop or working on some home improvement project. His other interests include website development, video, anything technology related, and food and wine.

An experienced skier, Michelle tries to spend as many winter weekends in Tahoe as she can. She is also involved with a number of charities, including East Bay Stand Down, a 3-day event to help homeless veterans in the East Bay where they are provided with medical and dental care, counselling and much more.

This, in  a nutshell, describes the path we have taken, and how and why we spend our time helping people to buy and sell homes. If you are considering making a move, we would love to have the opportunity to meet with you, so we can decide if we could be a match for each other as you go through the process of buying or selling.
