ABOUT RED OAK REALTY

Red Oak realty started out in a garage in Berkeley in 1976. Today Red Oak is one of the largest independent real estate brokers in the East Bay.

Red Oak doesn't have the most agents. Or the most offices. But we're serious about paying personal attention to every single person that comes to us. And we have the statistics to explain every square foot of every neighborhood in the East Bay. In the end, we think that matters more than size, any day of the week.
