I give Alissa and her firm my very highest recommendation. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, made spot-on predictions at every turn, and is very easy to work with. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat.— Josie K.
Alissa made our first home-buying experience seem effortless. She guided us away from some potentially disappointing properties toward the perfect spot for us. She also continues to offer advice and support as we navigate owning our first home. I cannot recommend her enough!— Monica F.
Jessica Waggoner and her team at MAJ surpassed all our expectations. It was our first time selling a house and Jessica held our hand, translated legalese, and helped us navigate truly unexpected speed bumps, all with professionalism and a human touch. She knows her stuff and she cares. I recommend them highly!— Eli B.
We absolutely loved working with Jess and the MAJ team. As first-time home buyers, we were completely overwhelmed but Jess made the process fun and easy. She helped us figure out our priorities when buying a home and helped us to see potential in many home tours. Throughout the process, we felt Jess had our best interest in mind and we landed a home that we love! Thank you jess!— Leslie N.
Alissa and her team from MAJ REALTOR have been fantastic to work with. Patient and diligent, Alissa listened carefully and understood our priorities in buying a primary residence. She was able to quickly spot the right set of target properties for us, and get us on the "Insider track" with listing agents and home showings. Very plugged into the east bay market. I'd highly recommend Alissa to any of my friends and colleagues.— Itamar N.
It was an absolute pleasure working with MAJ to sell our home! They are so talented and great at what they do. Their ability to handle our sales while we were based out of town was so incredibly helpful. Jess was able to transform our home into a beautiful, modern Gem and we couldn't be more grateful for the result. We would use MAJ again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling in the bay area. Thank you, MAJ!— Becca K.
Selling our home of 49 years was difficult both emotionally and process-wise. We found the disclosure process quite onerous, but with the guidance of jess and Susan of MAJ, we were able to make it through. They helped us both with the entire process and gave us wise counsel on the sale price and marketing of our home. In the end, we sold our home with ten offers well over the asking price and closed in 7 days. The end result validated their professionalism and knowledge of the market.— Diane G.
We could not have been happier with our decision to use MAJ to sell our house in El Cerrito. From the beginning of the engagement, the MAJ team was professional and respectful. They helped us pick the best dates to put our house on the market (given our constraints). Once we had done that they helped us line up resources to get our house looking its best. Their knowledge of the current market was invaluable. All along the way they provided sure-footed guidance through the process and required paperwork. In the end, all of the key dates we had identified were hit. The photography and videography were superb. And, our house sold for well-above asking.— Paul K.
Buying or selling a home very well may be one of the most stressful endeavors one can take on in the bay area. This is why having MAJ in your corner is so wonderful. We used MAJ to sell our beloved home in El Cerrito. Jess was our main point person but she clearly works with a Stellar Team to help guide clients through the complicated process of home selling. Jess and Team MAJ helped us with wonderful vendors as we updated our home. They have forged great relationships in the industry. On a personality level, they were kind and authentic. Between that and their extensive and sparkling marketing we chose them and never regretted it. In the end, Team ...— Dorothy P.
Jess and the team were great to work with, very communicative, quick to respond, and full of information. We worked with Jess to purchase our new home and to also sell our condo. She explained both processes very thoroughly and made us aware of the challenges and the differentiators in both buying and selling. We magically found our dream home, Jess coached us through the offer process which would otherwise, have been really stressful. Right away we moved into our new home and Jess put our condo on the market. She helped us prepare down to the final details and used top-notch stagers to make our place look absolutely amazing! We were able to sell ou...— Leah A.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home with the help of Jess Waggoner. Buying a home in the bay area is stressful but we felt more confident with Jess on our team. She was incredibly helpful to explain the entire process of buying a home, and was always responsive whenever we had questions or concerns. She helped us prioritize and understand the tradeoffs in our home requirements. She also helped us get pre-qualified and pre-underwritten for our loan, so we would be able to move fast when the time came to submit our offer. And wow things did move fast, but Jess was always there to ensure things were going smoothly and also to help calm o...— Raechel T.
We worked with Jessica and her team to sell our home in El Cerrito and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It was our first home and we put a lot of sweat equity and love into it so we really wanted to make sure it shined in the listing and attracted not only a great offer but someone who would truly appreciate the home. Jess and her team walked us through the tricky timeframe we were up against with the holidays approaching and got us on the market in January without a hitch. She also expertly assisted a buyer in the neighborhood with a quick offer on a competing home so we'd have a comp! It worked perfectly and the sale price excee...— Laura S.
I feel so lucky to have worked with Jess and the team at MAJ. As a first-time home buyer, I really had no idea how the process works, but Jess was always so helpful, patient, and willing to answer any "Silly" questions I may have even during off hours. When my partner and I found the house that was "The one," the bid that Jess recommended was accepted within two hours. She also connected us to an amazing loan advisor who really went to bat for us in getting all our financing ducks in a row. And when it came time to prep my partner's condo for sale, jess had all the contacts we needed for affordable and reliable handy work, cleaning, and staging. The...— Richard B.
Believe us (shout-out time) @MAJ deserves all the accolades and business. We decided to leave our beloved mid-century home so we could take early retirement and fulfill a long-time dream of moving back to Europe. Alissa and her team of professional wizards nipped and tucked our home into a show-stopping beauty. Our house went on the market after the first of the year, and we were blown away by the stunning photography, masterful marketing, the number of offers our home received (26), and the final selling price. Even after the ink had dried, the team at @maj @districthomes went above and beyond for us. We had some last-minute shipping issues for som...— Shelly L.
We worked with Alissa for our recent home sale and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, and friendly throughout the entire journey. The entire process and experience were very easy to manage and we felt so confident with her on our side that we handed her the keys on day one and let her take full reign on getting the home ready for sale. Fast forward just a few weeks later and our home was beautifully staged and we were able to secure an offer immediately, which we were very happy with! In summary, Alissa is a Bay Area veteran who knows this market like the back of her hand and is easily one of the best REALTORS you'll ...— Ben L.
Our family of 4 was preparing to leave the country, a process that we knew would be time-consuming. We had bought and sold previously with redfin but given that we had invested significantly to renovate this house, we were keen to get top dollar and we're not convinced we'd achieved that with redfin in the past. Our experience with Alissa at MAJ solved both issues, and we are confident that we got the best price without the responsibility of guiding or overseeing a top-notch sales or marketing process. Alissa is the Cadillac of El Cerrito brokers, representing all of the best houses selling in the El Cerrito hills. She knew the area's attractiveness...— Clint S.
We were referred by a friend who used MAJ to sell their home a few months before us in Oakland. We met with jess and Alissa and appreciated their talking points and what to expect, plus Alissa also knew the el Cerrito area very well. We told them we were toying with a contingent sale (a big no-no in the bay area) but they were open to it and heard us out. Needless to say, all of us suddenly put in an offer on a house and it was accepted. On to selling ours, and fast. At first, I didn't think we were on the same page but jess worked hard to accommodate our schedule and opened up her network to working with others to get it done I also appreciated the...— Jessica L.
They are the Greatest REALTORS in California. I had to move to Oregon on 3/30/2019. This was when we all were just beginning to recognize the covid issues. My home was not ready for showing, but I had to leave because my husband was ill and I needed family help asap. I had thought I would move in 6-8 months after finishing my list of projects. Alissa took on getting my yard updated, about 1/3 of the painting inside of the house, the main oak floors on the upper level sanded and varnished, the kitchen updated, and besides staging or final cleaning, a lot of other big jobs. I never expected to not be able to finish everything on my list. When I left I...— Coral E.
As we were starting to think about selling our house earlier this year, I spent many Sunday afternoons going to local open houses both because I love looking at houses and also to check out the REALTORS. In all the houses I visited there were two REALTORS who stood out to me as people I'd want to work with one named Jessica and one named Alissa. Each of them seemed individual to be both savvy and empathetic, both business-smart and relationship-oriented in an authentic way. I was impressed. Only later did I realize they were business partners. Before even being sure about selling, Alissa offered to have coffee to talk to me more about our situation,...— Amy S.
My partner and I worked with Jessica Waggoner of MAJ last year to buy a house in Richmond. Jessica came highly recommended to us, and she was amazing. She truly went above and beyond to support us through our first home purchase. As I've talked with others about their home-buying experiences since then, I've realized that MAJ provides an a+ service that is not typical for most real estate agencies. Jessica's expertise was invaluable. She helped us understand what was typical and expected when looking through home disclosures, actually walking us through our first one from front to back. She was honest with us when she saw red flags in inspection rep...— Cat L.
