"Ellen and I wanted to formally thank you for all you did to make the sale of 37 Dawn a success. Knowing your reputation before we engaged you as our agent, we had high expectations -- and they were exceeded. Your professional judgment, experience and understanding of the market was superb. You kept things moving on all fronts, drawing on a roster of service providers (like stagers or painters) who were the best in their fields. We are very satisfied with the outcome of your efforts.  I should mention that one thing that really impressed us was your "hands-on" approach to managing our transaction. In my experience, successful professionals often end up distancing themselves from the details, delegating much of the job to others on their "team". In contrast, you were personally involved in all aspects of our transaction and you were totally accessible, no matter the issue. You took responsibility yourself for getting everything right and I think it made a difference."~Larry & Ellen, Sellers of 37 Dawn St

“Both Bebe and Alexis are very lovely and brilliant and generous women. They are beyond competent, they are passionate about what they do and thus help in a way I have never before experienced. All was completely positive in my dealings with them both.” ~Ann Taylor, Buyer and Seller

“Bebe, I am very grateful to you for all your wonderful work on our behalf. When I was little, my dad took me to Candlestick Park to see the Giants, and he told me to watch #24. He said, that guy is so good at what he does that he makes it look easy. I always think of you as the Willie Mays of real estate transactions because the same is true of you. I really can't imagine a better selling process. Thanks for everything!” ~ Joan, Seller of Kensington property

“Bebe Mcrae is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail, hard work, and focus on client satisfaction is amazing. She is an absolute professional and her excellent work representing us, for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new dream home, made a difficult process a worry free pleasure. I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate transactions.” ~Andy Ball, Seller of 39 Crest Rd., Piedmont and Buyer of 17 Roble Ct., Berkeley

“You were absolutely phenomenal, and thought of absolutely everything. I would have been thrilled if the only thing you did was sell the house for the price you did; but in addition, you made the whole process easier by taking care of all the details. THANK YOU!!!” ~Dr. Christine Carter, Seller of 1871 Thousand Oaks

"We can't say enough about our experiences working with Alexis and Bebe during our first house purchase. We were prepared for a long season of looking and a lot of disappointment. Instead, we submitted a winning bid on a house in Berkeley within a month! Our success was directly attributable to their strategic thinking, responsiveness, and nuanced understanding of the entire process, which made our offer extremely competitive in an extremely hot market. They have continued to be a resource after the sale as well, confirming their professionalism and commitment to their clients. We will definitely work with them again should we decide to enter the market in the future." ~Freyja Knapp & Alex Harkness, Buyers

“Bebe has an incredible grasp of the residential real estate market – more than any agent I have ever known. She knows every house and understands exactly how to maximize the value of each one. Us software professionals could learn a thing or two from her in negotiation! She is also an incredible human being and is enormously professional to work with. This is a human network as much as any other professional network.” ~Mark J. Barrenechea, President and CEO of OpenText

 “Bebe, It was a short-lived time we spent together, but it was life-changing.  Thank you so much for the expertise and guidance you offered.  Absolutely love our home and we’ve really settled in--it all could never have been but for you!” ~Anthony & Julia Retort, Buyers

“I've never worked with a more competent person in any field. Bebe has a unique ability to turn a stressful process into an enjoyable one. I've worked with her on three different transactions over the years. After each closing, my only disappointment has been that our work together has come to its natural end. She's that good.” ~Peter Wegner, Buyer & Seller 

Bebe, thank you for all you did to help make our wish come true” ~Carl and Brenda Morris, Buyers & Sellers 

“In interviewing the East Bay’s top agents, each one promised ‘international luxury exposure for my estate’, ‘unparalleled access to top, professional couples’, and ‘personal showings to qualified buyers’. However, as I followed up with personal references, and carefully reviewed the sold properties in my elite pricing category, one name stood out above all the rest: Bebe McRae.” ~Tony Rich, Corporate President
