In the early 90’s I was working in the automotive industry as a union representative negotiating dealer contracts. This work was challenging, but rewarding helping employee’s achieve a higher level of personal commitment, increasing their wage all while balancing the needs of the business owners. What’s key to this is good listening and actionable performance.

We wanted to thank you for all your hard work regarding the sale of our home this past summer. Your attention to detail, knowledge of the housing market and input related to the staging of our home was a key reason we were able to entertain multiple offers and close without issue
Any challenges that arose were handled by your team with the utmost professionalism. Your communication, from start to finish, was outstanding! The entire process was much more palatable than expected and I look forward to working with you in the future.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. If you are ever in need of a reference please do not hesitate to give us a call.

In May of 2015, my husband and I faced the challenge of selling our first home while residing in it in order to purchase our next home with the proceeds. We had many questions and concerns throughout the process and Jeff was always available to us, helpful, patient and knowledgeable. We appreciated his great advice and always felt our best interest was his top priority. He went above and beyond many times, even after the transactions, following up with a full binder of information on both properties for us to keep. We would recommend him highly to our closest friends and family.

I cannot say how happy I am that Jeff was referred to me when I was looking for a home in Livermore. This was my first home and Jeff answered my same questions over and over with such patience. He always listened to my concerns and needs and never made me feel pressured. I feel that Jeff doesn’t sell you a house, he finds you a home. Jeff has a great knowledge of the area and uses that to guide you to your home. He is a proud member of the community and has a great knowledge of the schools, the businesses and the industries. This enables him to find one the right home in the right neighborhood. Jeff is a great resource, even after the sale is final. He is still helping me months later. I feel I’ve made a new friend, too. Jeff is also very reliable, prompt and responsive. He is a great family man. In the process of finding a home, I found that he has high moral standards; definitely a man you can trust. I give him 11 on a scale of 10.
Dear Jeff- We just cant thank you enough for all the hard work you did on our behalf. You made suggestions, gave advise and never once rushed us. You made it possible for us to realize our retirement dream while handling volumes of paper work and phone calls involved in selling a house. You never left us wondering what was going on, you kept in constant contact so we always new what was coming next. We truly couldn't believe how smooth everything went. Right from the start you let us know that it was our house and you were there to help us. You asked what we wanted and what are plans were and together we achieved our goal. Again we cant thank you enough!
With sincere gratitude,
Dave and Cammy Trumbo
In August of this year, my husband and I were blessed to not only close on our first home, but to get married all in a 3 week period. As many know, buying a home and planning a wedding are two incredibly stressful and time consuming processes, so to take them both on in a 6 month period was trying to say the least. Both my husband and I are in sales management. We are straight shooters and pride ourselves in being well versed in what we are working on. This made it challenging to find a realtor who held up to our demanding standards. We interviewed 4 agents before literally stumbling upon Jeff at a house we were peaking through the windows at. Within 5 minutes of speaking we knew he was the realtor for us. After almost 6 months, 90+ homes, and 4 offers, we had finally found our dream home. Now it was just a matter of actually getting an offer accepted and closing, all easier said, than done. I’ll never forget hearing the words out of Jeff’s mouth “Congratulations, the home is yours!”
Jeff is professional, incredibly knowledgeable of the industry, has strong working partnerships with other agents and lenders, and an intense passion for navigating people through the home purchasing experience. But at the end of the day, and what proved to be most important to us, Jeff is caring, honest, and a true family man. He understood how important owning a home was to us and went above and beyond to make our dreams a reality. These are all reasons why we would refer anyone looking to buy or sell a home to Jeff, and why we will be lifelong friends and clients ourselves. We can’t thank you enough Jeff. Because of you, we are lucky enough to start our new married life in the home of our dreams!

Jeff- I know you’ve been asking for a testimonial so here it is. You were absolutely amazing with handling my bank and working with me under such short notice. I had only days left and you saved my ass from foreclosure.
From my family to you and yours -Thank you!
Jeff and Liberty- San Ramon
We purchased our home in Livermore. Jeffrey was excellent in communicating and kept us well informed through-out the process. We received a VA loan, which made the inspections a bit messy, but all in all “job well done”.
Thanks for your help,
Bob and Katherine – Livermore 9
My wife and I sold in Union City. Unfortunately we had to short sell our dream home. Jeffrey handled the process from A-Z keeping us well informed. Your survey asked “Was there anything during the transaction process that Jeffrey could have done better?” Is this a trick (He did a great job)! We had a wonderful experience working w/Jeffrey and look forward to working with him again in the future! Thank you,

Jeff- First, just let me say “thank you” for providing me excellent service throughout the short sale of my home in Livermore, CA. I have purchased and sold several homes over the years and I have to say my experience with you as my realtor has surpassed all my expectations. Alain Pinel should be proud to have you as part of their realty team. Although the short sale process always tried to present a challenge every step of the way, you were always there to keep us on track and keep the deal moving forward. I appriciate the fact that you always kept me informed, and were there to listen to my thoughts and ideas, and let me stay connected to the transaction. Short sales can obviously be very difficult and time concuming, but I always felt confident knowing you have the experience and expertise to get the desired results.
It was a pleasure doing business with you and your team, and I highly recommend you to anyone with a desire to sell or purchase their home with the comfort of knowing you will give them 110% of your dedication and positive energy. Sincerely,
Mr. Barry L. Joseph
We purchased in a new development. Jeffrey showed us over 45 properties and worked with us for almost a year. He was very informative, very trustworthy, and excellent with customers. He even advised us to wait months for the market to drop more. As a result, we trusted Jeffrey and Alain Pinel to be our realtor - directly due to Jeff’s integrity.
Josh and Loretta - Brentwood 10
Unfortunately, we sold as a short sale. Our property was on the market for over a year. Jeffrey’s patients was astounding during our difficult times. Jeffrey landscaped our backyard and built a dog run for us to help promote the sale in this market. He worked with our banks keeping us well informed too. We highly recommend using Jeffrey!
Harjinder –Livermore 10
Jeff represented us with the sale of our house as well the buying process. He was very helpful and covered the contract well. He did such a great job, we referred him to our close friends, and they were pleased we did. Jeff has kept in contact to make sure things were still going well and I’m happy to say we made a new friend in the process.

"Jeff gave us a squeaky-clean first-time home-buying experience. He listened to our every constraint and found the perfect house for us and brokered the sale. He is an incredibly hard-working, resourceful, all-star realtor that also helped educate us regarding many aspects of home ownership."
Geoff and Maisa -Livermore
Jeff offered all pertinent information early on in the sales process with excellent suggestions, very responsive and had very creative ideas for this unique sales situation. Jeff went far and beyond what I would expect from a Real Estate Agent. In conclusion, Jeff was industrious, energetic, creative and altogether, very effective as a sales agent.

-If I had stayed in California, I certainly would give you more as I know you'll give them the same great service as you did me.
I already gave my best testimonial......A Referral
Jesse - Livermore 10
-We are very happy that we chose Jeff to represent us during the sale of our house. He went the extra mile to help us in any way that he was able to. We would highly recommend Jeff to help you sell your house.

-Knowing about, and being intuitive to, the needs of the client that one serves is essential to providing a thorough and positive experience for that client and Jeff Rudolff does that, naturally.
