Client Testimonials

  • 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. When he was going to be out of town, he made sure to notify us, wrap up pending items, and provide us with the name and number of a secondary point of contact. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of the purchasing process. You hear horror stories about purchasing a short sale; however, our sale, despite a multiple bid situation and our VA funding, was as smooth as could be expected. As for the financial side, he worked directly with our finance company to make sure the proper documents were generated and submitted on time. He made buying a house from 2000 miles away no more difficult than if we were in the area. 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.

    I would recommend Bruce without reservation to anyone looking for a realtor.

  • We got "assigned" to Bruce by a company relocation company and we could not have stumbled upon a better situation. 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 and helping us find the right house in the right neighborhood for us.
    We highly recommend Bruce!!!

    Bruce is a great realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable about the east bay and provided great insights on specific neighborhoods when I was looking for a place. I wouldn't have won the bidding war in a multiple offer situation without his guidance. Responses to my questions were prompt at all stages of the process, and he effectively managed a short close timeline. During the process he took particular care to zero in on the properties I was interested in and was a valuable resource in discovering new places that fit my criteria. He possesses great connections with other realtors which definitely helped and maintained a flexible schedule to visit properties - often we were the first to see new listings. I highly recommend Bruce to buy/sell in the east bay!

  • My wife and I recently bought a house in San Leandro, and Bruce was our agent.  We were buying a home from out of state and he helped us a lot through the process. He is very professional, knowledgeable and follows up in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home in the east bay.

  • I found a beautiful home in the Oakland Hills thanks to the excellent guidance and support of  Bruce Wagg.  

    From the moment that I contacted Brune 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 in pushing me forward.  

    After I found the right home, Bruce helped me to write a letter to one of the next door neighbors that paved the way for a shared fence between our two properties which allayed my worries about their dog crossing over into my yard.  He spent countless hours explaining all of the disclosures and helping me to fill out the paperwork.  His upbeat mood and sense of humor made it so easy compared to other realitors that I had worked with previously.  He knew how to advise me on making the right bid on a foreclosed house so that I got an exceptionally great deal.  He suggested some local trades people who helped me to accomplish all the tasks that I needed to do to improve the house before I moved in.

    In short, I would gladly recommend Bruce to anyone who wants results and who wants the experience of working with a really decent human being who is naturally curteous and professional....and as I often him, "you're the best!", plain and simple.

  • I was looking to purchase a home in Oakland and was lucky to come in contact with Bruce Wagg . He is very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market from the flat lands to the Oakland hills. He helped me navigate through dozens of foreclosures until I found the right one at a bargain price.
