Oakland Native / East Bay Expertise
My family and I have been intimately involved in the Oakland community for generations, with a portfolio of successful businesses. We have provided professional service to generations of families throughout the years. This has translated beautifully into my real estate practice, as both are focused on delivering excellent client service.
Communication is the cornerstone of my approach to business and keeping my clients informed throughout the process is of paramount importance. I know that clients receive the best service when their needs are understood and acted upon.
I've gained a unique perspective on Oakland, due to my many connections within the community, and my love and appreciation of the architecture and historical buildings which make Oakland such a beautiful place to live.
I understand that acting as a project manager for my clients is what differentiates me; literally, I can manage the entire process from A to Z, discussing the details with each client so that each feel fully prepared to make these large financial decisions.
I look forward to working with you!
What clients are saying about Bruce
"you're the best"
From the moment that I contacted Bruce on-line for the first time, he was ready for action and asking all the right questions to ascertain my exact needs. He made me feel comfortable and secure that his expertise was going to result in the end goal of finding the right house for me. He listened to my concerns, and helped me to weigh the options and choices. He was always available at every step of the way to advise me and to move the process along when I finally found the one that I wanted. He stood by me when I decided against one home and he never missed a beat after that when I asked him to show me other homes.
Bruce was gracious and generous with his time and he drove me around when I felt overwhelmed by the unknown new area, and he was always encouraging and supportive, and, as I often tell him, "you're the best!" plain and simple. Michele R.
"trustworthy and reliable"
I was looking to purchase a home, and was lucky to come in contact with Bruce. He is very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market, and he has helped me navigate through dozens of homes until I found the right one. He is great at negotiating, and has an instinct for the right price to get the deal done. He provides sellers and buyers with years of experience in selling real estate, to help them close escrow with confidence. He is trustworthy and reliable; pleasant to work with and eager to accommodate. Barbara J.
"We highly recommend Bruce!!!"
Bruce was amazing-very responsive, caring and very patient in helping us find the perfect home. He really understands the nuances of different neighborhoods from Berkeley to Alameda to Castro Valley (our search area) to the point of knowing advantages of which side of a street to be on. It really showed that he is experienced, and, most importantly, caring!! He took a genuine interest in our family an helping us find the right house in the right neighborhood for us. We highly recommend Bruce!!! Stephen B
"Bruce is an amazing agent."
We just closed on our house today in the Estudillo Estates area of San Leandro, and I can't say enough about our Bruce Wagg. Bruce is an amazing agent. He is incredibly professional, competent, and responsive. We never had to call to get an update as to an offer, inspection or other document. He attended all of our inspections. He obtained bids and oversaw repairs on the home. He arranged to have most of our documents sent and signed electronically. Best of all, after closure, rather than simply send off our keys and wish us good luck, he offered to be available for workers that might need to access the home until we actually make the move in a few weeks.
