Website: Berkeley Parent Network-http://parents.berkeley.edu/ This web site contains thousands of pages of recommendations and advice contributed by members of the Berkeley Parents Network, a free parent-to-parent email network for the community of parents in the Berkeley, California area. Formerly called "UCB Parents", this network is run by a group of volunteer parents in their "spare" time. Many busy parents have taken the time to give their suggestions, their wisdom, and their experiences. Check out BPN for advice from schools to repair specialists.
Recently, I sold 50 Emery Bay Drive in Emeryville. I was happily surprised to see that my clients recommended me on the Berkeley Parents Network! I feel honored to be mentioned on BPN, as all recommendations come from people who live in our community who feel compelled to share a great experience.
Here is what my sellers had to say: " I wholeheartedly recommend Deidre Joyner with Prudential. She just sold our house with great success! (Multiple offers in less than a week, sold over asking, etc...) She is an Oakland resident so she knows the market very well. Check out her website (www.deidrejoyner.com) and call her at 510.835.6180. She does everything to sell your house. "
